Casting Nightwing



News of a Nightwing movie has been all over the internet this week.  I personally just about leaped out of my skin as I have felt this is the direction DC should be going with their films as the lesser known heroes seem to do pretty well in the box office.

There is all kinds of speculation about this film already and I don't even know if there is a script.  The rumor is that a director has been tapped; Chris McKay, the director of Lego Batman.  I don't know how concrete these rumors are, but there are multiple sites reporting.

So that's the news end of things.  I'm sure it's all stuff you have already read about so let's get into the fun stuff.  What do we want to see in a Nightwing movie?

A full on origin story is not necessary.  I bet an excellent Nightwing movie could be two hours or less.  You can let it be known he was Robin and his parents died so he was raised by Batman and Alfred.

If you want to get a fun origin story in the movie, give insight into where the name Nightwing comes from.  It has nothing to do with bats or Bruce Wayne's alter ego altogether.  Big Blue himself was the inspiration for Dick Grayson's choice in crime fighting name.  Nightwing came from a Kryptonian legend.  I know, you would probably have to tweak some things as the current DC movie Universe probably doesn't make this feasible.  Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad aren't exactly stellar so why not go off the path?

Don't be so grim.  Have some fun with this movie.  Lighten up DC!  I keep hearing how DC is going for realism with the darker themes but I don't think most of the world sucks that bad.  Maybe it does, but Dick Grayson/Nightwing don't need to bring us down any further.

There are plenty of villains we can choose from but I think, before we go any further, we should look at who should play the title character.  On Maskerpiece Theatre, we like to cast films and figure out who we would like to play certain characters.  Follow us on Twitter, we play this game quite often as it's not just on the podcasts.  I'll give you names but without explanation.  You be the judge and let us know what you think.  Photos are from the actors' IMDB profiles.

Binge Watcher Review: The Good Place "Season One"


The Good Place 
Season 1

Starring:
Kristen Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto, Ted Danson, Tiya Sircar, Adam Scott

Synopsis: 
When rogue shopping carts strike and kill Eleanor Shellstrop, she is surprised to find herself in the “good” area of the afterlife. She quickly realizes she has been mistaken for someone else when her wise, newfound mentor tells her she earned her place by helping get innocent people off death row. She decides that she wants to shed her old foul-mouthed and hard-dirking ways and find a way to embrace the good person within— at least when she isn’t considering finding a way to return to her mundane existence back on Earth.


Final Thoughts:
After finishing episode one, my first thoughts were this was a stupid show and concept. However, somehow I had a weird urge to continue watching. I am so glad I continued and was not disappointed. Kristen Bell has an amazing ability to turn nonsense into humor and the addition of Ted Danson was amazing.


The show itself centers around Eleanor, a women who just lived a horrible life while on earth. The flashbacks throughout each episode are amazing and really helps sell the difficult that Eleanor has to being a good person. Through each episode of the season Eleanor works to better herself with the help of her not so “Soul Mate” Chidi all the while trying hide the fact that she truely doesn’t belong in the good place.



If you are looking for a fun show that will not make you think to hard than “The Good Place” is for you. Plus the season finale has a twist you won’t see coming. So while many shows are still on Hiatus and you are stuck watching reruns or even worse reality TV, just log on to your Hulu account and begin your binge watching adventure, cause in the end you’ll find yourself in a good place.

Binge Watcher Review: Countdown (2016)


Countdown (2016)

Starring:
Nic Nemeth, Glenn Jacobs, Katharine Isabelle, Josh Blacker, Alexander Kalugin, Michael Kospa, Alan O’Silva, Catherine Lough Haggquist, Andrea Stefancikova

Synopsis:
When a madman kidnaps a young boy and rigs him with explosives, Ray defies his captain and takes matters into his own hands. Now he must beat the clock and save the innocent child.


Review:
Before moving into the review I have to state that I am a big supporter of “B Movie” action films and more specifically have found the majority of WWE Studio films enjoyable. Are they great….no. However, they have found their niche in the movie industry. Countdown was not on of these films, I don’t even know where to start with this movie but I will try.


The film starts promising enough, Ray being played by WWE Superstar Dolph Ziggler and Detective Kendricks enter what looks to be cargo yard to perform a undercover operation and this is where the movie comes apart. As soon as we are introduced to Rays sergeant, WWE Superstar Kane, the movie starts to unravel before our eyes. Ray is suspended due to his performance in the field which allows us to be introduced to the female lead, OPA officer Julia Baker, played by Katharine Isabelle. Her performance was so awful in the first scene I wouldn’t have blamed anyone for turning off the TV. Through out the movie she is puffin on and inhaler….Maybe due to asthma or maybe due to an addiction but you don’t know why cause it actually plays no part in the film and is never touched apon.


The next 15 mins of the films dives into what is supposed to be the main plot of the movie, a madman who has been sending Ray demands for 2 mil in cash for the last year has finally upped his game and kidnaps a kid……What the fuck, what police department doesn’t investigate ransom demands for an entire year? However, lets suspend disbelief for the moment and believe this is possible. The rest of those 15 mins show ray running around a WWE event (Im guessing due to financial restraints, on the plus side you get to see the back of The Rock in one scene for about two seconds) chasing the madman because this is where the ransom dropped happened. The chase ends with villain being killed leaving a little kid somewhere in town strapped with explosives and its now a race against the clock to save the child.


The rest of the film plays out as expected and shows Ray running around town, causing trouble to get information on the whereabouts of the boy while being chased by the man they arrested at the beginning of the film during the undercover operations for some reason. 

This was a horrible film, it was just filled with horrible acting, plot holes and in all honesty no plot direction. Ray and Julia spend time asking around town in order to locate this child, only there was no actually evidence that they should be questioning all these individuals other than they are all Russian. We had to be given a new villain cause they killed the one that cause all of the issue within the first 20 mins. And while Dorph Ziggler was passible as an actor, Kane was just horrible and needs to put his mask back on.


As for the writers of this film, Richard Wenk (16 blocks, The Magnificent 7) and Michael Finch (The November Man, Hitman: Agent 47) this was a horrible script for two men that have given us solid films in the past. My suggestion…..Pass on this movie, let my suffering be enough.
