Bubbawheat: I’ve been a big fan of comic and superhero movies all my life pretty much. I’ve enjoyed comic books, but I always preferred seeing the superhero genre on the big or small screen. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that Batman: The Animated Series has been one of my all time favorites, and that’s the era when I grew up, watching that and all the superhero cartoons that came shortly before and shortly after that series, and I enjoyed them all. I also watched and enjoyed all the live action TV shows at the time, even the bad ones like The Flash and M.A.N.T.I.S. as well as the good ones like Lois and Clark. I’m not always as critical as some people might be, I know crap when I see it, but I generally back it up with specifics rather than just calling it crap, and when I see something I like in what many people consider a bad movie I’ll be sure to point that out too. And if you’re curious about my avatar, it’s based on a series of superhero characters I created for the MMO City of Heroes called Burnt Matchstick.
For as many age-appropriate movies that her interest will allow, I will be watching the movie with my 5 year old daughter Jena and posting her thoughts about the movie and the superheroes, I’ve also tried getting video of her thoughts with varying degrees of success.
There’s several ways you can get a hold of me to ask me a question or if you want to just keep posted on what movies I’m watching that aren’t superhero related. Of course my favorite way to be contacted is just by leaving a comment on any page. I read them all and reply to most of them.
One thing that’s great about having a unique name like Bubbawheat, which I’ve been using online for over ten years now, is that nearly any time you happen across the name, it’s me. I’ve only seen a couple isolated places where I couldn’t get the name Bubbawheat, but they’ve been few and far between.
Anyway, the next best way to contact me is via Twitter where I’m @Bubbawheat, or you can click the little twitter icon right at the top of the page.
If you’d prefer to E-mail me directly, it’s easy enough to send it to my name @msn.com
Categories of Posts
Movie reviews are generally categorized by decade, they are also listed in the Marvel or DC category when appropriate. I’m currently attempting to find and review every superhero movie ever made and the more I watch, the more I realize are out there.
Almost Super: These are movies that I can’t really call a “Superhero” movie, though there’s still some connection to the rest of the movies that I review on this site, whether it’s a heroic action movie, or looks visually like it was taken off the pages of a comic book.
As You Watch Podcast: The weekly podcast that I started with three other guys: Vern, Nick, and Joe where we talk about new releases, a different top 3 list each week, and discuss the movie of the episode. Since we all have a chance to choose, I will toss in the occasional superhero movie like Batman or Pumaman.
Follow Friday: I spotlight someone else’s blog, let you know why they are a blog worth following, and get the writer to answer a few questions about movies, blogging, and whatever else. Unfortunately, this has dropped off recently due to my busier schedule
Superhero Shorts: I feature a short film featuring superheroes and also interview the creator about the film. They are generally fan films but range from parody, to serious, to music videos. Anything goes as long as it features a superhero and isn’t just a re-edit of an existing work.
Blog: And finally, I will once in a while do something more random like a top 10 list, a review of a superhero novel, my thoughts on superhero movies in general, or a more personal update. Pretty much anything that doesn’t fit into one of the above categories goes here.
