Deadpool 2 has hit the theaters this weekend. Now that the majority of us have settled down after going through the emotional process that was Avengers: Infinity War, it's time to see how super hero films can keep the momentum going. And, although Deadpool is not part of the MCU, it still has to keep pace with the other super hero films to stay afloat. But how will the Rated-R follow up to the amazingly received Merc With The Mouth solo film stack up?
It's been ten years in the making and it has taken 18 films to reach the pinnacle of what will be the biggest game-changer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After only showing up briefly throughout the films (Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, & Avengers: Age of Ultron), Thanos has taken center stage with the Black Order as they reign chaos in Avengers: Infinity War. I will be giving a brief non-spoiler review, and then diving in to go over some of the best (and very spoiler-filled) moments.
The Venom trailer is here and boy….it’s a trailer alright.
I’m excited! Are you excited?! Why aren’t you as excited as I am?! The Meg trailer finally released you fool! The Meg is one of my most anticipated movies of the year and I have been waiting with bated breath for the first trailer. Not only that, two posters were also released that are really cool. So you might be asking, “Johnny, you’re an unbiased and generally rational fella, so what are your reasonable thoughts on The Meg trailer?” Well…
A Quiet Place is one of the more intelligent horror movies I have seen. It truly is real genius. A script with such little dialogue that you spend the movie afraid of the sound of your own breath, proving anticipation is a true parent of fear.
With all the excitement and fervor over last week's Avengers: Infinity War trailer release and the subsequent record breaking ticket presales, it makes sense for studios to want to glomb onto that buzz. And why not keep it within the Marvel family? Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox released a brand new trailer for Deadpool 2 that gives us a much larger glimpse into what we can expect from the fourth wall breaking Merc with a Mouth.
Ever since they announced that the film was being pushed up a week to April 27th, we all have been asking the same question; Is there going to be a second trailer? We are a little over a month away and all we have is that one teaser trailer three months ago.
Black Panther is now out! You know what that means. I saw it last night and I have a lot to say. There might be some small spoilerish stuff in this review, so continue at your own risk.
It has happened guys! The impossible has become possible. Over the course of the past week, Disney and Fox have been in talks to hand over all 21st Century Fox film rights to Disney, and Thursday (Dec. 14th), they have come to an agreement, and it only took a deal of $52 billion to make it happen!
*obligatory “Life finds a way” quote* It’s here you guys! The new trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has been released by Universal.
After 10 years, 18 films, and over 30 characters introduced among the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have finally reached the film that everyone was talking about since we first saw Thanos in the end credit scene of the first Avenger film; Avengers: Infinity War teaser trailer. If you have not seen it yet, here it is:
Due to there being so many rumors about the upcoming slate of comic book movies, I thought a little cheat sheet on the site might be a good idea. I'll update and keep track of all the dates and details for each upcoming movie on both Marvel and DC's side of things.
When 20th Century Fox rebooted Planet of the Apes in 2001 the movie going audience breathed a sigh of relief. Finally, Planet of the Apes had been returned to it’s former glory and in the capable hands of Tim Burton. But despite the critical success that Apes was, Fox and Burton never moved forward with a sequel. Perhaps they were afraid they would be unable to match the success of the first. That turned out to be a valid concern.
Every once in awhile a movie based on a book hits theaters and blows critics and fans away. These are rare occurrences as most films based on books are flops. Just look at The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Silence of the Lambs and The Godfather. All films based on works of print that failed to live up to the source material. Then out of nowhere we are graced with the likes of Eragon, The Golden Compass and The Giver that take the source material and elevate it to unforeseen heights. We can now add The Dark Tower to this list of cinematic achievements.
News has come out today that the forever rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in development at Lucasfilm.
Through the combined efforts of Ryan Reynolds and 20th Century Fox bravely pressing the 'Enter' key, we have our first official looks at Domino and Cable from the upcoming Deadpool sequel.
Pouncing straight off the pages of DC is comic book history’s most popular and sexy burglar. Catwoman revolutionized the game by playing both a foil and a love interest to DC’s most overrated character, Batman.
To say that Spider-Man: Homecoming is a great movie would, indeed, be a statement. It’d be an inaccurate statement but a statement it would remain.
I write this with a heavy heart since I just found out that George A. Romero has passed away.
It is hard to be a fan of horror and not give a huge amount of tribute to Night of the Living Dead. The year it came out (1968), it shined against competitive films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Planet of the Apes and Rosemary’s Baby. Black and white film was not too old at that time, but the way the movie was captured set a creepy nostalgia to the chills you felt. And it was zombies. Romero will always be the Godfather of Zombie films.
Well, when it rains it pours and Marvel Studios continues its streak of duds with Captain America: Civil War.
