“DAY 1 OF DISNEY’S D23 EXPO 2017!: What Caught my attention”

Hey there ladies and gentelnerds. Well, Disney’s D23 FAN EXPO 2017 is in full swing. Day 1.. Is honestly.. Probably still going? Maybe? You know, the whole “time zone” thing. East coast, West coast… Very different. Its like two separate universes. Fucking wierd. Anyhoo.. Day 1 has given us some pretty cool looks at what Disney animation has in store for us in the coming months and year(s). Also some nice glimpses into the world of Avengers: Infinity War, Thor: Ragnorak, Black Panther, a Marvel Mystery set to be revealed tomorrow and Star Wars land, and also, This Years ‘DISNEY LEGENDS’ inductee’s. 

Here’s a few things that caught my eye.

STAR WARS LAND: We got a much closer look at Disney’s Future attraction with a detailed model of a section of the theme park.

This model just amazes me. Granted you may say, “It’s just a model” But just judging from the scale of it though… This place is going to be Massive!

DISNEY LEGENDS: 

Disney honored long time Disney stars and contributers/Partners, Such as..

Mark Hamil

Carrie Fisher

Oprah

And of course.. The Man, The True Legend, 

STAN LEE, 

Who is, in fact, a modern era Walt Disney. A man who Stan looked up to, and admired and hoped to emulate. So, for me. To see him get this award… Was Very heart warming.

BLACK PANTHER/ THOR: RAGNORAK: 

Marvel Studios gave fans closer looks at the costumes of these two highly anticipated films. 

DISNEY ANIMATION:

We got our first looks at Disney’s COCO and WRECK-IT RALPH 2: RALPH WRECKS THE INTERNET. We also got news about TOY STORY 4. Jon Lasseter stepped down from the co-directors chair and has appointed co-director Josh Cooley to helm the project on his own. Details on Frozen 2 were announced as well. And most importantly, 

INCREDIBLES 2! It is on its way and the story will pick up right exactly were the first one left off. The Underminer explodes from the ground and boom! We start our new adventure. I am so stoked!

Lastly..

The Marvel Studios Mystery:

Sometime tomorrow. Marvel plans to unvail these 4 mystery statues/characters. Many believing that it could be the Fantastic Four! With many theories as to how and why. SPOILER ALERT: in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Happy reveals that Tony has sold off Avengers Tower to an unknown and unnamed buyer. Leading many to speculate that The Baxter building could be in our future and these four figures could be the new Marvel MCU Fantastic Four! And to that i say… Close, but no cigar. Although that theroy is pretty damn awesome. Its not very likely at this point in time. What IS however more likely? Since the reveal of the Thanos figure..

The shrouded figures next to him and/or behind him, could most likely be.. 

THE BLACK ORDER! 

Granted there are only Four shrouded figures. 

And there are 5 Black Order members.

My guess is.. The big one is Black Dwarf, the one to the right of the big one (our left. According to the picture) could be Black Swan or Ebony Maw. The one to the left (our right.) could be Corvus Glaive and the last one could be Proxima Midnight. That seems the most logical choice. Although, i would be off the wall thrilled and excited if The FF was back with Marvel.. That would mean Silver Surfer would be back where he belongs. But that day wont come just yet. 

SO! thats it for day 1. Lets see what day 2 has in store. Im excited. Stay tuned to this very blog site. Where, Very soon, I’ll run down a few things i hope to see come out of “SAN DIEGO COMIC CON INTERNATIONL 2017” coming next weekend. I will try to stay on point with this coverage of DISNEY’S D23 EXPO 2017. If anything catches my eye out of Day 2. We shall see..

Thank you so much for joining me, and reading my BS. I greatly appreciate it. And until next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEW: Disney’s “BEAUTY And The BEAST”

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds, and welcome to another addition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS”

todays movie?.. (do you have to ask?)

“Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST”

 https://youtu.be/e3Nl_TCQXuw

THE STORY: Boy meets witch, acts like a dick and gets turned into a Beast, Girl’s dad does stupid shit and gets imprisoned by Beast, Girl takes dad’s place as prisoner, Girl gets Stockholm syndrom and falls for Beast, Beast learns what it means not to be a dick, They Fall In Love and.. Then he turns into a good looking dude and gets the girl.. “Tale as old as time” Really i debated on how i was going to do this review.. Is anything a spoiler? The story itself is like.. Hundreds of years old. The Animated Movie is like 20+ years old. Who the hell hasnt seen Beauty and The Beast?! 

Whatever..
The story is great. Its not exactly a shot for shot, song for song remake of the original. But its really good. I enjoyed all the old stuff and really liked the additions to the story. I was hooked the moment the opening theme played. I liked the actual visualization of the ‘Enchantress’ and the curse she put on the prince. The special effects were great. The musical numbers really cool. Really, a great movie. Disney does it again.

THE CAST: Talent across the board. Great performances by those who were there. Great vocal performances by the non existent actors. The guy who played The Beast was cool. 

Emma Watson…

Once i think i cant love her anymore then i already do.. She goes and gives me more to love. She can sing and she sings wonderfully. People should compare her to the original voice actress because that woman was a proffesional! Emma clearly has the pipes. But its not what she does. And what she does here was gokd enough for me. Emma was freaking awesome, and is honestly one of the only reasons i decided to watch this damn movie. Other then the curiosity/nostalgia factor. 

THE POSITIVES: Emma Watson.

THE NEGATIVES:

Just joking. But Emma Watson was awesome! 

Great acting. The CGI characters were cool. The music was on point. They really brought the movie to life beautifully. The ending was a bit of a surprise. I will not spoil anything.. But they changed the ending from the animated version. A drastic change, but not a bad change. It worked.

THE NEGATIVES: The Beast…

Was not terrible. The visual effects to create him was good.. Just.. I wouldnt have been mad if they used some practicle effects. He wasn’t very impressive for me. I understand the need to try and make this..

Look as real as possible.. But i think they could have done a mix of practicle and digital effects. Uhm.. Could have used more action in the final act. I remembered a more physical altercation between Beast and Gaston ( I could be mistaken) or at least they could have been more physical at that part. Oh! The “BE OUR GUEST” song.. Not a knock on Ewan Mcgregor’s singing voice.. But that rendition sucks compared to the animated film. I did not like it. The presentation was great, but lacked in the vocal department.

OVERALL: Yet another great addition to Disney’s live action remakes. They keep getting better and better. Leaves me with high hopes for their future remakes. Mostly Jon Favuro’s “LION KING” remake. I give “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 6/10. Very Enjoyable, worth checking out! 

Thx for reading folks. Have you seen Beauty and The Beast yet? What are your thoughts? Comment below, leave a like and please follow the blog. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS: ‘OSCARS 2017’ A Short Recap!

Lets me be honest.. I watched The Walking Dead, more then i watched This Years Oscars. But i switched back once TWD was finished and caught one hell of a show..

I’ll keep this short and sweet.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Viola Davis for “Fences” 

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Mahershala Ali for “Moonlight” 

BEST DIRECTOR: Damien Chazelle for “La La Land”

BEST ANIMATED FILM: “Zootopia”

BEST MAKEUP AND HAIRSTYLING: “Suicide Squad” 

BEST COSTUME DESIGN: “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” 

BEST VISUAL EFFECTS: “The Jungle Book”

BEST ACTRESS: Emma Stone for “La La Land”

BEST ACTOR: Casey Affleck for “Manchester By The Sea”

La La Land took home the most awards for the night 6 in total, leaving “Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King” still Oscars champ. 
But that my friends is not the biggest news..

The final award, BEST PICTURE.. I laughed my fucking ass off.. In case you missed it.. Here’s the rundown.

Warren Betty and Faye Dunaway were to present the nights winner. Upon opening the envelope, Warren seemed confused and unable to announce a winner.. Looking perplexed, he looked at Ms. Dunaway and seemed to look offstage for some assistance. 

Unsure what to do, he handed the envelope to Dunaway and she proclaimed “The Oscar Goes To, La La Land!” que music, everyone goes on stage and thank you speeches are being made..
However, behind the person giving his speech. I see a man with a headset racing around looking for the envelope.. Turns out.. Dunaway and Beatty were given the wrong envelope! 

They were given the Best Actress envelope, which read, “Emma Stone: La La Land” not the Best Picture Envelope that had, “Moonlight” which was the real winner! 

To put into perspective how shocking and amazing this is (and fucking hillarious!) The Oscars are 89 years old.. This. Has never. Happened before! Who the fuck was handing out the envelopes!?
Naturally, everyone is blaming Beatty and surprisingly enough not both he and Dunaway. Bit its neither of their fault! Unlike Steve Harvey who actually just didnt read the right fucking name! They were given the wrong Envelope! 

Kimmel, from what i did watch, was pretty good as host. The bits with Matt Damon were freaking funny. 

The Best Picture botch was what saved the show! The Oscars pulled ‘A Harvey’

So.. Thats my recap. Thanks for reading. Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

‘WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS’: “THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE”

Hey there, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome back to another edition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!” 
Todays movie.. 

“THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE” 

THE STORY: 

Batman is the man! According to him. He’s always right. His amazing 9 pack abs are the greatest thing ever. (yes, i said 9 pack abs) He has it all figured out. And, He can do it all on his own. He doesn’t need anyone! Or so he believes. When The Joker devises a way to destroy Gotham and make Batman relaize how much he hates Joker, Batman is put to the ultimate test. 
Make no mistake. This is a kids movie. But the message can be felt and learned by people of all ages. The story is brilliant and funny. It may not be as loveable as its predecessor ‘The Lego Movie’, but its a close second. The Lego animation is spot on. The references to all of Batman’s past is fantastic. They go as far back as the 1940’s seriels. Its hillarious. They play around a lot with the Batman ’66 stuff. Bane sounds like Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises. All of it is so funny.

THE CAST: 

Will Arnet proves his worthiness of the cowl. Rosario Dawson’s Barbra Gordon is great. Michael Ceras’ Robin is awesome. Ralph Fiennes as Alfred was spot on. So much so, i wouldn’t mind seeing him do it in live action form. The biggest surprise for me, was Zach Galifinakais’ Joker! 

For the material it was made for.. It was perfect! I loved it. Im surprised how much i liked his version of The Joker. 

THE POSITIVES: Everything was awesome! 

THE NEGATIVES: The soundtrack didnt have the song , “Everything Is Awesome”

OVERALL: “The Lego Batman Movie” is a great movie for the whole family. Its good for a date movie. Its good for going on you own to forget about all the other bullshit going on in your life for an Hour and a Half. Its all around great! We are 2 movies into the Lego Movies Franchise, and I cant wait for The ‘Lego Ninjago’ Movie! 

I Give, ‘THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE’ a score of, 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 8/10. Your going to have a great time! Go see it!

Have you seen Lego Batman? What are your thoughts? Hit me up, and be sure to leave some likes and follow/subscribe for more Weekend Movie Reviews! 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!: DCAU’S “JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK”

Hey There ladies and gentelnerds, and welcome back to another segment of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!”
Today’s movie.. DC’s Animated Universe Original Movie, “JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK” 


THE STORY: When theres something strange, in your neighbourhood. Who you gonna call? A British demon killer, A Deadman, A self-loathing immortal, A Beautiful Magician.. And The Batman! Basiclly thats what Justice Leage Dark is about. Supernatural forces are making normal people do some crazy fucked up shit.. And its up to Batman (who else) to assemble a team to combat this threat.

DC’s Animated Universe is slowly improving. This film being one of the few good ones out of the recent string of, how can i say, Shit! That has come out prior. I can seriously count on one hand how many good ones this division of DC/WB has produced in the recent years.

The story is really good. Its entertaining. The cast of characters are actually the best thing about the movie. Everything else, seems to just be there. Constantine is super fun. Zatana is a bad ass. Deadman is funny. Etrigan is pretty darn cool. And Batman is… Batman! I liked his reactions to all the mystical things going on. Swamp Thing.. Shouldnt even be on the damn cover of the movies dvd box case..

That right there friends… Is false advertising! 
THE POSITIVES: Again, the characters. The good thing to come out of this movie is the fact that i wanted more from these characters. I want an animated series on adult swim or something. (Why Adult Swim? SPOILER ALERT: They fight a fucking shit monster. An actual monster made of Shit!) 

There is an incredible amount of potential for this ‘Dark’ franchise. If they’re smart enough to capitalize. But lets face it.. WB Animation is as smart right now as thier live action counterparts.. 

THE NEGATIVES: Swamp Thing was fucking WASTED!! A total fucking waste of time. Not gonna spoil it.. But they gave the Shit Monster more screen time! Bad guy was all powerful yet non threatening, and non interesting. Hades from the Justice League cartoon was more menacing. And he only had less then 5 minutes of screen time out of a 22 minute episode. And in all honesty.. If your not gonna use the Justice League in a compelling way in your story.. Dont include them at all! It seems like Batman is always the main focul point of every JL animated movie. Why havent we gotten any Wonder Woman movies out of this new animatex universe? How about Superman? Or GL? Oh thats right.. They would rather basterdize Batman stories instead and force feed us bullshit stories with his son Damien. (Im looking at you Batman vs. Robin!.. Asshole!) 

OVERALL: Besides the total screw job on Swamp Thing.. JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK is a fun movie. Its one of the good ones. Entertaining. Beautiful Art. And great characters. 

I score, “JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARK” A 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5/10. You’ll enjoy it for the same reasons i did. If you like it for more reasons.. Then your grasping and straws friend.

Have you seen JL:DARK? What are your thoughts? Hit me up. Comment below. And for fucks sake, can a brother get some LIKES!!? 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
