The trailer for the newest installment of the young X-Men series: X-Men Apocalypse was just released. I’ve been a big fan of this series even since X-Men First Class. I’ve just preferred this style of film over X-Men films of the past. I guess it’s because I’m a fan of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. From the trailer this film appears to be more of the same which isn’t a bad thing. All of the main cast from past films are back for this one, including Rose Byrne who was absent in Days of Future Past. There are new additions for this film including Tye Sheridan as Scott Summers/Cyclops and most importantly Oscar Isaac (who seems to be in everything now) as the film’s main villain En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse. He appears to be their most powerful adversary yet. The film looks full of action and mutants which are nice to see and make me very excited. X-Men Apocalypse releases May 27th, 2016.
This is a continuation of what I started here. Olé!
In 1820, crewmen Owen Chase, George Pollard, and Matthew Joy (Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy) aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Pushed to their limits and facing storms, starvation, panic and despair, the survivors must resort to the unthinkable to stay alive. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville (Ben Whishaw) to write “Moby Dick.”

With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Friday, December 18th, I thought I would take a look back at all of the previous movies from the beginning starting with the prequels and then the original trilogy. Try to ignore this, or not while watching the prequels. I’ll probably be treading through familiar territory with most people as well.
If you ever wondered how Marvel’s cinematic universe came about, I’ve posted an 11-minute featurette which recently came with Marvel’s Phase 2 collection which was released on December 8th.
I’ve thought about this all wrong when I reviewed Spectre the first time. James Bond just has a drinking problem which led to everything we’ve seen all these years. For a further explanation, please refer to the video below from The Onion:
So the trailer for the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie just released and so far appears to be more of the same. I have to say that I like the series but I wouldn’t say that I’m a massive fan of it either. The first film, which I thought was okay, was just a bunch of cheesy dialogue (mostly from the turtles themselves), an iffy story, and some fake action. From the trailer, this edition appears to have more action and takes place mostly on the surface which is a change from the first film. This one features most of the human actors from the first film, Megan Fox as April O’Neil and Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick. New additions to this movie include Stephen Amell as Casey Jones and Laura Linney in some role that I’m not sure of yet (not too familiar with the series). Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 which has a fancy subtitle called Out of the Shadows, will be released June 3rd, 2016.
This is a continuation of what I started here. May you have many nightmares.
It’s almost award season so that means nominations. The SAG award nominations were announced yesterday and the Golden Globe nominations were announced today. I have including the applicable nominations for each below. I’ve also added links to my reviews as well as predictions. Unfortunately I have not seen all the films that have been nominated for either so if I see any of those films before each award show, I will update my predictions if I find something more worthy. I will also highlight the winners after each as well.
