A Quiet Place is our new thriller directed, starring and written by John Krasinski. In case you don’t know him by name, he’s one of those actors with a face that if your girlfriend left for you him, you’ll look at him and think, “Well, good for her,” mainly because he’s just darn likable. I have unintentionally followed a fair amount of his career from the Shrek and It’s Complicated” to The Office and this movie. He has a knack for comedic timing but I must admit he does drama really well.
By now you may have realized that I just wrote a whole paragraph just about Krasinksi, and that is because he’s the only person I rooted for in the movie – let’s explore.
So it’s been a long time. I found myself separated from writing for a good portion of this year ( lets say all of it). I’m back with a new direction on where I want to take my writing. Truthfully I was not quite excited with what I wrote despite it being part of my beloved geek-culture. I will be changing my format from a “review” stance per-see to more of an critical thinking format. I enjoy writing as if I’m talking and I believe that will make my style my own so I can fully transition into a hobby feeling like a job that it’s a chore to wake up to. I have that already, haha!
So let’s rev up that engine again! So let’s sink or swim! 3.0 shall begin!
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,
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.
So I’ve been playing Street Fighter V for a while since it’s second week of release and player a bit of the beta as well. I have to start by saying I’m loving the game! I’m not as fast a learner as others so even now, I’m still trying to play with SFIV logic at times and just get my face smashed in, but I love the journey of learning this game. Now I’m just climbing the ladder in rank mode, sometimes having winning streaks until I get to that inevitable ceiling for rooks like me to get wrecked every other game. As I’m playing gleefully as can be I… cant shake this unsettling feeling. Continue reading “Why Street Fighter V is not sitting well with me…”→
