I’ve been a big fan of the Power Rangers all my life. I talked about it briefly here. But for those who have seen some of it and just need a refresher or for those who haven’t seen any and want to learn more, here is an insightful video below.
How many did you miss? I will admit to having missed a few.
In 2001, editor Marty Baron (Liev Schreiber) of The Boston Globe assigns a team of journalists to investigate allegations against John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 boys. Led by editor Walter “Robby” Robinson (Michael Keaton), reporters Michael Rezendes (Mark Ruffalo), Matt Carroll (Brian d’Arcy James) and Sacha Pfeiffer (Rachel McAdams) interview victims and try to unseal sensitive documents. The reporters make it their mission to provide proof of a cover-up of sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church.
Recently, one of my friends told me about the Youtube channel called Cracked (you probably have heard of it). They have many videos on their channel about a lot of different things. They also have video series about a lot of different things but this post will focus on one of their series, After Hours, which is a bunch of people who meet up in different places (as far as I’ve seen and I haven’t seen them all) discussing and debating things. I found their discussions/debates about movie stuff to be very interesting and enlightening. So much so that I’ve put a few of the videos (there’s a lot more) below:
After Hours – “Stupid” Movies That Are Surprisingly Progressive
Luckily for young Arlo (Raymond Ochoa), his parents (Jeffrey Wright, Frances McDormand) and his two siblings Buck and Libby, the mighty dinosaurs were not wiped out 65 million years ago. When a rainstorm washes poor Arlo downriver, he ends up bruised, battered and miles away from home. Good fortune shines on the frightened dino when he meets Spot (Jack Bright), a Neanderthal boy who offers his help and friendship. Together, the unlikely duo embark on an epic adventure to reunite Arlo with his beloved family.
The successful career of 1940s screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Bryan Cranston) comes to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. The film tells the story of his fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom, which entangled everyone in Hollywood from Hedda Hopper (Helen Mirren) and John Wayne (David James Elliott) to Kirk Douglas (Dean O’Gorman) and Otto Preminger (Christian Berkel).
When the experiments in their groundbreaking research into immortality, mad, genius, scientist Victor Frankenstein (James McAvoy) go too far, only Igor Strausman (Daniel Radcliffe), his equally brilliant protégé, can bring him back from the brink of madness and save him from his monstrous creation while evading capture from the determined Inspector Turpin (Andrew Scott).
Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) never knew his famous father, boxing champion Apollo Creed, who dies before he was born. Since boxing is in his blood, so he moves to Philadelphia and seeks out Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) and asks him to be his trainer. Rocky, seeing much of Apollo in Adonis, agrees to train him, as he has battles of his own. With Rocky’s help, Adonis soon gets a title shot, but whether he has the true heart of a fighter remains to be seen.
So the first trailer for the new Captain America movie is out now. I don’t know if it’s the one that was shown behind closed doors a long time ago but I don’t care because it’s awesome! In the trailer are the usual cast of characters Captain America, Iron Man, Falcon, Bucky/Winter Soldier, Black Widow, War Machine among others but showed glimpses of new and recent characters including Black Panther. It shows a conflict brewing between the characters but doesn’t quite hint as to the reasoning behind it (of course those who read the comics will already know this) but I’m sure other future trailers will cover this. The trailer itself wasn’t too short but wasn’t quite long either. It did have some decent action and fight scenes but I wanted more. May 6th, 2016 can’t come soon enough.
So this year’s incarnation of The Fantastic Four was pretty terrible, I think everyone knows that by now. I also said just as much in my review. I was very delighted to find a video online which spoke the truth about the movie. This video happens to be the honest trailer of Fantastic Four. As with most honest trailers, it just seemed to keep saying what I was thinking (and probably others too). Here it is below for your enjoyment.
