Blade Runner 2049: We kissed, I Yawned, You Yelled in My Ear

So lets talk Blade Runner 2049; BD2049 is a quasi-sequel to the original Blade Runner that opened in 1942. The movie is a mass of stunning visuals and often superb sound but all the buzz words that I could muster does not ultimately prevent the movie being overall… boring.

Valerian: The Movie of a Thousand Possibilities

Alright let’s talk Valerian,

Valerian_and_Laureline
Here it is right here!

No, we’re talking about the movie, not the comic. Oh what’s that? You didn’t know it was based on a comic? Well take that bit of fun fact to your next trivia night with your friends right after you finish playing the Switch. I say that because you wont notice too much of anything that screams “comic book” at you during the movie. Continue reading “Valerian: The Movie of a Thousand Possibilities”

Batman V Superman: One week away and I’m kind of excited

So we all know the movie is coming out soon- like next week soon, so I’ll make this short and sweet with my final thoughts and predictions after seeing the last trailer.

Before that, I must say, I find it rather amusing how this movie has been kinda sucking publicity-wise with its trailers, that it took so long for it to excite me. The last trailer opened with Batman jumping beating down some fools in the most Batman-ish way to date, well live action that is. It showed us what MANY of us wanted to see, and that was Batman NOT being a little punk for the entire trailer! I mean look back at all these previous trailers and they’re pretty much saying, “Look how uncool this guy is”. Not only have shown several clips of Superman merely playing around with him but there was vital scene that really bothered me. It was scene where Batman’s car bounces off Superman’s body Mario-Kart style(which is embarrassing enough) but then gives that “Do you bleed” question while facing Clark’s back. Then after Superman gives him the “B**** Please” look,

Nigga? Really?

he leaves so Batman can finish his epic threat to…. the sky. It just made Bats look so weak and pitiful and maybe that was the intention because…. mission accomplished.

This trailer showed what Batman excels at and how formidable he is overall. All we needed to see was that Batman has even a slight chance against Superman. That what’s non comic nerds want to see, they want to see how in the world could Batman even come close to the Man of Steel. While that should have BEEN the major focal point, we now know they’re gonna buddy up and fight Doomsday based on the last trailer (still salty about that one). Personally, I just want to see the conclusion of their conflict and I can leave the movie once DD shows up. I want to see their opposing beliefs, I want to see them make their stance and I want to see them clash! I want to hear that iconic speech Batman gives Superman at the end of their fight. Now the last scene of the trailer showing Bats blocking Supe’s punch to show us that “Hey, this fight will not be so one-sided okay”?!

I’m excited for Wonder woman even though her solo movie clips looks horrible but I did enjoy the ONE LINE SHE (FINALLY) SPOKE!!! I think BvS shot themselves in the DoomsDay reveal, this trailer is a nice redemption and I will be there opening day for the movie. I’have close to no doubt that movie will be good, yet I’m aware there is a high chance that it can go real south at any wrong turn. My predictions are it will be a C+ but I’ll let you all know when I watch it.

DeadPool Movie Review: If only This Came Sooner

So…Man where do I start?

It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that this is one of my most anticipated movies of the year. For those who may not know, DeadPool was a project that Ryan Reynolds(playing Deadpool himself) has been trying to get green-lit for a long time. The movie stars Wade Wilson, a mercenary with a terrible sense of humor(terrible that it’s offensive but still funny) who is borderline insane, but has a sliver of humanity left in him. This humanity is enhanced when he meets a lovely stripper… prostitute….waitress? I’m not sure, she was either two or all three of those– moving on — but it turns out she is just as messed up as he is and they hit it off. They become an item until Wade is hit with cancer from the blindside. Now Wade rather not drag his girl down with him, so as he’s about to ditch his beloved he gets an invitation to not only cure him but give him super powers. Well with a 2-for-1 deal that would make Chilli’s blush, how can he say no? Continue reading “DeadPool Movie Review: If only This Came Sooner”

Suicide Squad and Deadpool: Excited and Confused

So let’s talk about the recent trailers that popped up on the interwebs!

Now I know everyone who’s owned a friggin bat-symbol shirt has gave their reviews and reactions to these trailers but to me I found the Suicide Squad and Deadpool trailers as a symbol of something even more pivotal.

I believe that symbol pierces the clouds and rains yells at the eyes of anyone who sees it screaming, “HEY!!!! LIGHTEN UP!!!” Continue reading “Suicide Squad and Deadpool: Excited and Confused”

Star Wars Awakens: Feels like DeJa Vu

So lets talk Star Wars, which honestly feels a little odd for me. I mean as a comic/manga nerd first, Star Wars never captured me the way it has so many other geeks. I always appreciated it for the impact it has on people and I do think the original trilogy is entertaining. So when I walked into this movie I felt an overwhelming sense of disconnect. Perhaps that was due to arriving on opening night where Darth Vader and the Fett taking pictures. Perhaps it was seeing the fans themselves dressed up as their favorite characters just to watch the movie. To me I felt out of place but also I admired their love for the series. It was truly inspiring to see but I clearly was not part of the magic, merely witnessing it.

Enough about that, moving on to my thoughts on the movie itself. Now the movie was an overall mixed bag. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie but couldn’t quite get over the sense of dejavu that continued to appear throughout the movie. Also… SPOILER WARNING!

Why The Godlike Avengers Are Being Outshined by Street Heroes Like Daredevil

Hey remember the early 2012, where the roars of nerds could shatter glasses? Those were the days when the comic movies were expanding, exploding and evolving into something that isn’t just for a certain demographic. We witnessed them as it reached mass appeal and without being completely aware of it, we were in the midst of a movie-genre renaissance. Then the Avengers arrived, for the first time daring to combine characters from separate movies all to form the ultimate team up experience! And it did not disappoint!

Dragonball Z – Resurrection of F : Movie Review

Hey everyone! So let’s talk Dragonball Z : Resurrection of F,

This movie is the second installment of the Dragonball Z “revival” since its predecessor, “Battle of The Gods”. For those who want my thoughts on that movie, I’ll tell you right now…Meh. Moving on!

Funny enough when I started watching this I was really into it. Resurrection of F was confronting all the things that I hated about the Dragonball series since the Cell Saga Continue reading “Dragonball Z – Resurrection of F : Movie Review”
