Matt Reeves Write & Directs ‘The Batman’

By | March 21st, 2019|

Per usual, I’m very late to the party, but I digress.

Batman v Superman brought Batman back in the comic book movie fold and kick-started DC’s film universe. Granted, after Justice League, they decided to change gears and not have the movies as connected as their counterpart in Marvel’s cinematic universe. The ongoing movies are more loosely connected instead. One in particular is the change in actor playing Batman.

‘The Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer and Thoughts (Sort Of)

By | January 6th, 2019|

It’s been eons since the first trailer for Marvel’s most anticipated film, The Avengers: Endgame came out. Oh, by the way, the latest and possibly final entry for The Avengers movies is Endgame. It was kind of a given, considering Doctor Strange’s line in the fight on Titan against Thanos in Infinity War.

‘Fast and Furious’ Spinoff ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ Gains Antagonist

By | July 15th, 2018|

A rumored schism caused a spinoff from the Fast and Furious franchise — or was it the other way around? Either way, the spinoff is well underway with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as the titular characters: Hobbs and Shaw. It’s a peculiar pairing, considering one was a cop and the other is a killer.

‘Men in Black’ Continues with New Cast

By | June 2nd, 2018|

I try not to hate on remakes since they’ve been a thing for as long as film has been around, but sometimes I can’t help myself. The news a while back about a remake for Men in Black was one of those times. I loved the original as a kid. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones were fantastic. Then, there was also the cartoon that I really liked — I guess that might go a little towards remake territory, but I digress.

Bear McCreary, Composer of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and ‘Agents of SHIELD’

By | May 9th, 2018|

One of the most memorable things about Battlestar Galactica was the music; it was very different than the music in other shows and even in film. It had an almost organic sound; not something you would expect in a sci-fi show. Yet, somehow, it beautifully fit.

Marvel’s ‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ Trailer

By | December 8th, 2017|

Iron Man teased the idea of a larger movie universe with Agent Coulson mentioning S.H.I.E.L.D. Then the end credits drove it home with Director Nick Fury schooling Tony Stark on not being the only one doing heroics. I flipped out. It was the first time a comic book movie went there; that there’s more out there and that we will see more heroes in the same movie universe.

VFX from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

By | October 5th, 2017|

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is easily up there as one of my favorite movies. The film drew emotions out of me; joy, laughter, and sorrow. It was an emotional rollercoaster for me and I enjoyed every second of it.

‘Stranger Things’ Trailer Gives Look at Return

By | September 30th, 2017|

Stranger Things is one of those shows that I’m a huge fan of. After binge watching it, I was quick to have family come over weekly to watch it. They were easily just as hooked. Just about everything about it hit the right notes. The actors were engaging and the atmosphere and cinematography left you with a sense of unease that latched onto your attention.
