I’m not quite sold on James Wan’s Aquaman. This is besides the fact that think, for the most part, the DCEU (DC Cinematic Universe) is a bit of a clusterfuck, which is problematic because it consists of characters so iconic, so well-known that it should be relatively difficult to screw it up. After all, Marvel […]
I think that the next movie that i am going to catch is Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. What’s most interesting about that is that I really disliked The Maze Runner. The story was needlessly elaborate, and often laugh out loud silly. And that’s not hyperbole. What unfolded on screen was so preposterous at times that […]
Sometimes the best strategy is to let the movie do the talking.
Let’s be honest…the trailer for The Vatican Tapes doesn’t look that great–and you’ll notice that it’s supposedly coming in July–and while I could have missed it last month, I don’t think so. I get the feeling one reason it exists is to ride on the coattails of Michael Peña’s success with Ant-Man, though what interests me even […]
How much of what analysts do is about ego?
I have officially reached the point of trailer saturation–when a trailer starts to reveal more information than I am comfortable knowing, as far as Ant-Man is concerned, at any rate. Like when Hulk caught Iron Man during the first Avengers–which was featured prominently in the trailer–I honestly don’t want any more surprises, no matter how small […]
I am genuinely psyched for movies like Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War and Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice but what I am even more interested in is something that we won’t be seeing on the big screen, and that’s Gerry Anderson’s Firestorm. Originally sold by creators Anderson and John Needham to a Japanese company, it was […]
Some people are critical of Marvel using lesser known directors for the superhero properties–the main one being that they’re cheaper than better known talent. This relates directly to rumors that they’re considering Rick Famuyiwa and Ava DuVernay, for upcoming Marvel projects. And while their relative inexpensiveness is undeniably a factor, I don’t think it’s nearly as important as […]
Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four just released a trailer, and its…okay. All the elements are there, but it’s coming on the heels of trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (still hate that subtitle), Ant-Man and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, so it’s easy to see why it’s a bit underwhelming at this point. As I said, […]
I was thinking that I don’t particularly care about the upcoming Star Wars prequels, till I saw the crashed Star Destroyer in the desert…now I am getting a bit jazzed. Then there were the melty Darth Vader helmet (which looked like it was gone over a bit too much), new-style Stormtroopers, and various Jedi. I’m […]
