Who Should Play Batgirl in the DCEU?

Movies, Uncategorized

All we currently know about the DCEU’s solo “Batgirl” film is that Joss Whedon is to direct, write, and produce. No word yet on a lead actress, besides a rumor about Lindsey Morgan possibly playing the heroine (who is not on this list but I believe would be a great choice). Keep in mind these are my picks for Barbara Gordon, as that is the Batgirl that the film will apparently feature. So who should play Batgirl in the DCEU? Here are our five picks:

Kong Might Be King, But His Film is Not (REVIEW)

The second installment in the “Monsters” universe, following 2014’s “Godzilla”, comes “Kong: Skull Island.” Both have been relatively well-received by critics (both are “certified fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes). While I found Garett Edward’s “Godzilla” to be a decent enough start to this “Monsters” universe, I did not feel the same about “Kong: Skull Island.”

As I sat last Thursday night with hundreds of others in a nearly sold-out IMAX theater, I couldn’t have been anymore excited for “Logan”.

Most modern action films don’t have long tracking shot action scenes, we know that. It’s perfectly fine to not use tracking shots, or do long takes, it’s not easy. But, when it takes four cuts to do a simple takedown (“Captain America: Civil War”) or sixty cuts for a one minute fight scene (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), something is wrong. But why use so many cuts? Why does it take four cuts to show Matt Damon kicking a guy into a desk (“The Bourne Identity”). Let’s discuss.
