I just got out of seeing "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" and I have things to tell you. I overall enjoyed the film, but I did have some small issues. Nothing that really ruined the film, but just felt off or out of place.
I have loved Stephen King's epic "Dark Tower" series for many years. It's an incredible story that spans seven books (eight, if you count the later addition "The Wind Through the Keyhole" which takes place between books 4 and 5) and 1.3 million words. So when I heard that the series was set to be adapted to film, I was skeptical, but remained open-minded thinking that, if the Harry Potter film series could do justice to those books, a series of Dark Tower films might be able to do the same. I would have preferred a "Game of Thrones" type TV show, but I could live with movies.
Today the internet collectively lost it’s mind when it was announced that Jeff Goldblum has signed on to reprise his role of Ian Malcolm for Jurassic World 2.
It would appear everybody on the internet is sharing the same single thought: “It’s Finally Here”. During this year’s Star Wars Celebration event in Orlando, Florida, the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released to the masses. The heart drops, the shivers, and literal goosebumps were all intact for each of my viewings of the trailer (yes, there were many) and now, more than ever, I am absolutely psyched for December.
We've been waiting for this news since we heard that Cable would be debuting in the sequel to the super successful Deadpool film. Names were bandied about for months up on months. Brad Pitt, Michael Shannon, Russell Crowe, Kyle Chandler, and many more were up for the role. Today we've discovered that Josh Brolin will portray Nathan Summers aka Cable in Deadpool 2!
Don’t hate me...but I disliked this trailer. Look, I am known for being a curmudgeon when it comes to the DCEU. I didn’t choose to not like these films or this universe. I just don’t. It doesn’t interest me, it doesn’t speak to me, it doesn’t leave me wanting more. This universe just leaves me wanting.
It’s here! It’s finally here! This is by far my most anticipated MCU film coming out this year (2017) and this trailer did not disappoint.
While it's gotten a tamed down (albeit, good) made-for-TV mini-series, Stephen King's classic novel IT has never gotten the big screen treatment. But this September, that all changes and this week we got our first trailer!
DC fans have been upset by the recent releases from the DC Extended Universe of films. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad have left an unending foul taste in their mouths, and they're less than optimistic that the upcoming Wonder Woman film will redeem the shared universe. However, today we get a glimmer of hope within this grey and gloomy universe Zack Snyder has created. Joss Whedon, a Geek God for many, has signed a deal to write, produce and direct a live action Batgirl standalone film.
The King has returned! Wait...wrong movie.
Randy's review of The Lego Batman Movie has arrived!
The first trailer for the third film in the reboot ‘Planet of the Apes’ franchise has dropped. Before going into it, why don’t you take a gander:
It's the moment we've all been waiting for since Peter Parker/ Spider-Man reappeared on our screens in "Captain America: Civil War": a look at the wall-crawlers newest solo film, the first one put out by Marvel Studios since their deal with Sony Pictures almost two years ago. And, man, did this trailer deliver.
Want to see explosions? Want to hear Anthony Hopkins narrate what we’re seeing? Want to see a twist that should have been saved for the actual film? Well look no further:
The first trailer for the Tom Cruise led reboot of The Mummy dropped! Before I get into it, why not take a peek?
Reboots are a hot commodity. Studios are always looking for the next property they can reinvent. Reboots can bring in an already established fan base and invite a brand new audience to delight in rebooted goodness. And while there are some films that definitely should not be touched, looking at you Back to the Future, there are a lot more that deserve to have another go around. Here are five films and one TV show that I think Hollywood should seriously consider:
So, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 now has a full length trailer. If you have not seen it, here it is:
The 2nd official trailer for Kong: Skull Island dropped tonight and we definitely got a lot of new information. We got a lot more Kong, a lot more giant monster and a lot more plot with just a little humor sprinkled in.
Although "Captain America: Civil War" was the beginning of Marvel's third phase, the introduction of the Sorcerer Supreme is the REAL beginning. Being that this was the first story of a new character since Ant-Man back in 2015 (I'm not including Black Panther and Spider-Man because those were cameos), it really needed to push the boundaries to keep us intrigued. I know it got a lot of hype overseas and I did a pretty god job staying away from early reviews so that I wouldn't be spoiled, at least up until 2 hours before seeing it...thanks internet. This movie is the quintessential setup of the new line up of heroes which include Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and to a certain extent, Wasp. Would this movie live up to the hype of the rest of the franchise? Overall, there has yet to be a genuine flop, but over the last couple of years, I personally kept waiting for that shoe to drop, mainly when they first announced "Guardians of the Galaxy" and then later on with the announcement of "Ant-Man". I had the pleasure of not only seeing it on opening night, BUT was also able to see in the Regal's 4DX theater.
It's been a rough year for the DC Extended Universe. Batman v Superman disappointed so many fans. Suicide Squad, while making a lot of money at the box office, has been destroyed by critics. More recently, director Rick Famuyiwa has left The Flash only six months away from starting production. The only glimmer of hope on the horizon is what we've seen from Wonder Woman so far, and what we've seen has made many fans very excited. Today, we got to see even more! Check out the latest trailer:
