We are now less than 2 weeks away from the release of Now You See Me 2. The Four Horsemen have now resurfaced and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet. Just like the first movie, it definitely has its own coolness and sense of style to it. The magic in the first film was great and I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with it here. On the next page, I have included a clip of the movie featuring Jack (Dave Franco) and Lula (Lizzy Caplan) spending some quality time together while discussing their pasts.
The best reviewed movie on my site for the month of May is:
If you are unsure about the movies coming out this week on DVD/Blu-Ray, maybe my reviews can help.
If you would like to read my review of X-Men: Apocalypse, click here. Apocalypse wasn’t as great as I hoped it would be but it was still a good action movie. But what would have happened if it had taken a similar approach as another film in the same universe, Deadpool and had gone for an R-rating? Wired’s Youtube channel has recently created a parody red band trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse which explored what this version of the movie would look like. Unlike most red band trailers, there isn’t really anything bad here other than some more blood and a few more bleeps but otherwise, it was a pretty funny video. I would definitely have seen this movie and it might have actually been better than the version we got.
Most of you just saw the premiere of episode 5 of season 3 of Penny Dreadful. Unlike most weeks, I don’t really have anything to say because I haven’t watched the episode yet myself. But I won’t let that stop me from posting previews of next week’s episode. If you would like to watch a preview of next week’s episode and also a few clips, you can watch these below. Because of its potentially spoiler-ish nature, please continue to the next page. As always, you can follow me on Twitter as I will continue to live tweet as many episodes as I can.
Most of you just saw episode 6 of season 6 of Game of Thrones entitled “Blood of My Blood”. Unlike most weeks, I don’t really have anything to say because I haven’t watched the episode yet myself but I will say that the episode titles so far have proven to be big hints. I won’t let that stop me from posting previews of next week’s episode. If you are still interested in what I have to say about, I intend on live tweeting the west coast premiere of episode 6 at 9pm PT. If you would like to watch a preview of next week’s episode entitled “The Broken Man”, you can watch the video below. Because of its potentially spoiler-ish nature, please continue to the next page. As always, you can follow me on Twitter as I will continue to live tweet as many episodes as I can.
There have been many movies about dogs but I can’t quite remember one ever being about a weiner dog. Now we finally have that movie with Wiener-Dog, which is, of course, about the life of a dog as it travels around the country, spreading comfort and joy. Along its journey, it encounters a series of kooky and eccentric characters who are definitely worthy of being in an indie movie. The film also boasts an interesting cast featuring the likes of Greta Gerwig, Danny Devito, and Ellen Burstyn. This one just exudes quirkiness and charm and looks smart and funny. This one might be worth a look whenever it comes to a city near you. Wiener-Dog releases June 24th, 2016.
If you would like to read my thoughts on the first trailer of Urge, click here. I still don’t really know much about this one other than it features Pierce Brosnan in a scary role as a shady nightclub owner known only as “The Man”. A weekend getaway does not go as planned for a group of friends as they are introduced to a new designer drug called “Urge”. Get ready for some pretty wild stuff with people doing wild and crazy things and then have stuff get out of hand. The thing that fascinates me the most about this one is Brosnan and I am curious as to where he goes with the character. In order to get you a better idea of the movie, I have shared a pair of clips of the movie. Urge releases June 3rd, 2016.
