Summer Break

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, it's been a busy Summer and I took a month off from blogging. I saw Kick-Ass 2 and didn't bother to write a review. Overall, I liked it, but I hadn't been caught up on the comic book so I felt I couldn't give it a proper review. Plus, with the controversy regarding Jim Carrey (Col. Stars & Stripes) and his very vocal protest of the extreme "violence" in the movie (so conveniently after the Sandy Hook tragedy!). The violence in the comic is by far even more bloody and violent than the movie so I feel that his comments are unwarranted and he is merely trying to apologize for his portrayal of a character who in my opinion has to be the best character in the whole movie. His part in the movie remains brief but without him the movie would be devoid of any real interesting characters along with the otherwise over-the-top comic book parodies of their characters.
