Empie cover July 2012 The Dark Knight Rises

Im so glad I got this cover, there was only the choice between two, Batman or Catwoman, no Bane cover but I have a subscription so I didnt know what cover I would have and I am really pleased.

This issue also comes with a free Dark Knight Rises poster.

I have been buying Empire now for 12 years and also bought a box full of old issues for £5 quite some time ago so my collection is huge now, need to get some proper shelving put in just for my empires!

Movies I am looking forward to in June

I know we are already in May and alot of must see movies have already been released, such as The Hunger Games and The Avengers, but I thought I would share with you the films that have yet to be released that I am looking forward to the most that both happen to be released next month -

I am looking forward to this the most out of all the movies released. I just think it is going to be a very special film and I am a huge fan of the Alien movies, even the 3rd and 4th. I also love Ridley Scott and its so exciting to see a new sci-fi movie by him as he has only ever done Alien and Blade Runner.

I read an interview with him recently in which he said how he was surprised the other film makers who did the other 3 Alien movies didnt pick up on hints he had put in Alien such as the space jockey and so thats going to be put into the prometheus storyline.

Another reason why I am excited about it, is the cast! Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace and Charlize Theron are three of the most exciting actors around at the moment and so it just adds to the excitement, it just feels like its going to be the movie of the year for me.

The Dark Knight Rises

This is another obvious one, but I cant see how anyone could not be excited about this. I am unsure as to whether is will be better than the Dark Knight as I dont really think that it is possible but I will be happy if it is just as good.

If there is anyone reading who doesnt know (there might be some out there) this is the 3rd and last installment of the Chris Nolan Batman movies. The first was Batman Begins, the second was The Dark Knight and this is the last.

All the trailers, especially the most recent one have blown me away and I just know its going to be super impressive.

This time the villains are Bane, played by the brilliant Tom Hardy and Catwoman, played by Anne Hathaway which I think is going to bring alot more tension having both of these famous charactors in the movie together.

It also stars Marion Cottilard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and of course Christian Bale playing Batman for the thrid time.

Stand by me bluray

I purchased Stand by me on bluray recently, I bought the 25th anniversary edition with the lovely gold and white slipcase.

First of all I would like to say that I absolutly adore this movie, I had it on DVD too and have watched it so many times it is just such a lovely film about childhood and friendship, and also has themes of bullying and obiously shows off the innocence of the 1950s.
The bluray is really done beautifully, the colours are so vibrant and cystal clear. The sound is clear without being done over the top, just gently cleaned up a bit. It looks like it was filmed yesterday! It is definatly worth purchasing on bluray, I know sometimes you can get them and the HD upscaling just hasnt worked right. This really is one of the best I have seen.

It has some great features including a in screen commentary with Rob Reiner, Will Wheaton and Corey Feldman and a mini documentary looking back at the filming.

Thanks for reading!!
