And just in case you didn’t think there were enough movies out there for superhero enthusiasts, there’s “The Avengers.” That’s right, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and the Hulk are all joining forces to battle the bad guys. It’s a veritable sampler menu of costumed crime fighters. Add to that the fact that Joss Whedon of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is directing the epic, and you have something close to a perfect storm of fanboy-dom.
Redgrave was from a very well-known British family of actors. She made her theatrical debut in 1962. She won a New York Film Critics Award for her role in the 1966 film Georgy Girl, the role also landed her nominations for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. She was in Gods & Monsters, the bio pick on director James Whales.
Also deserving praises was Dominic West as Jigsaw. His portrayal of the insane character was easily overlooked. His Jigsaw was easily comparable to Jack Nicholson’s https://lenpalace.com/game/joker123/ from the 1989 Batman.

Gloria Stuart had an interesting, and long spanning acting career which ran nearly 80 years. Today people remember her for playing old Rose in James Cameron’s Titanic, but to me she’ll always be the Invisible Man’s girlfriend.
Not to be confused with “Hulk” which was mentioned above, this 2008 soft re-boot of the Hulk franchise is actually really good. While not a sequel this film moves forward without invalidating anything from the previous film. The movie explores the fragile psyche of Bruce Banner; evokes the best of the Bill Bixby television series and has incredible (no pun intended) fight scenes with the Abomination. Plus the love story with Betty Ross is kept to a minimum. What more can anyone ask for in a super-hero movie? The only thing I can think of would have been a been a cameo from Wolverine.
And so I say again, The choices we make determine what the studios put out there. WE as people who watch films are the ones who should be rewarding good films and brave decisions made by the industry by using our hard earned money to actually see films that are great. And the only way the industry will learn this, is if we truly use our emotional intelligence and intellect. To feel, love, laugh and cry as heroes, heroines and villains come to life on the stage and in film. Until the next time…
