NETFLIX and CHILL: ‘GoodBye DISNEY, Hello MILLARWORLD!(?)’

Sooo.. As we all have heard and well know by now. Disney has decided to pull its massive disney D!€Ω, out of Netflix and go solo with its own streaming app, at the very end of 2018. 

That means. All Disney products, Pixar, Disney Animation, ABC productions, ESPN Programing (ie: 30 for 30), Movies (live action and animated) Disney Channel Shows, everything and anything associated with that freaking Mouse is leaving Netflix and being streamed exclusively on their new (as of yet un-named) App. 

Now, what does this mean for the “Netflix Exclusive” Marvel Shows? 

Well… Although Marvel is under the Disney Banner, The contract Netflix has with Marvel and those exclusive shows lasts just a bit longer then the end of 2018.. Probably another year or so more. However, at this moment (to public knowledge) Netlfix is currently speaking with Disney on extending the contract for Marvel Brand titles, and Star Wars Titles. 

(Which makes sense, seeing that those could be the most viewed programming at the moment.) 

So for the time being, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, The Defenders, The Punisher are still going to be available on Netflix for the forseeable future. IF! No extension is granted to Netflix by disney for these properties.. Be prepared to see them slowly bleed away to the Disney App.

IN OTHER NEWZ! 

Prior to Disney’s announcement to part ways with Netflix. Netflix itself, reported thier very first outside acquisition. MILLARWORLD Publication. 

Mark Millar’s Comic Publication 

which includes the titles WANTED,

 KINGSMEN, 

KICK-ASS,

 SUPERIOR, 

EMPRESS,

 NEMESIS 

and many more.

That means, We can expect brand new original content coming To Netflix in the coming months and years. Based off of these many titles. On the flipside of that coin though..

WANTED, KINGSMEN and (probably) KICKASS are still licensed by other studios and companies.. So until those licenses run out or Netflix makes a deal for them.. We wont be seeing those exact titles anytine soon. BUT! Nemesis is one title i have been most interested in seeing come to life. Its like, What If Batman, took all those skills, all that money, and all that intelligence and became the foremost badass super criminal/terrorist the world has ever known. So, i am looking forward to that. 

That being said, it’s not all bad that Disney is leaving in another year and a half from now. Im sure both companies can still find away to do successful business together. Millarworld is a very nice and exciting consultation prize. Millar has crafted a series of wonderfully written masterworks. Very suitable for live action translations. I am very certain, that everything will turn out for the Best for everyone involved.

But! What do YOU folks think?! leave a comment. A LIKE. Subscribe/Follow! And thx so much for reading!

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

“ICYMI: FIRST LOOKS AT “DEADPOOL 2’s” DOMINO & CABLE!” (bare with me, im trying to catch up)

Okie dokie, ladies and gentelnerds.. This will be short and sweet..

Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds showed the world our first looks at Zazie Beets and Josh Brolin as Domino and Cable (respectively)

ZAZIE BEETS as DOMINO

Not exactly comic accurate to say the least..

But Zazie Looks beautiful! I really dig this new, fresh look to the character. She looks bad ass and i cant wait to see her in action. Only 1 gripe.. Just 1.. Seriously couldnt go with the Black Spot on the eye? Seriously? I mean.. Eh! But whateves.. Im sure it will work on the screen. 

JOSH BROLIN as CABLE

Holy.. Fuck! 

Thats pretty damn accurate! Nice job 20th century Fox.. Not bad at all! 

Great casting on both ends. Great costuming. Deadpool 2 is already shaping out to be More awesome then the first!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

SPECIAL EDITION: “MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” Prt. 3

Ok folks.. Im thinking this will be the final installment in this special edition “My Thoughts On.. Sand Diego Comic Con 2017”

In this article, we’re gonna take a look at “AVENGERS:INFINITY WAR”

Well… What can be said about the Infinity War presentation?.. Not much honestly. They showed the same trailer from D23 at Comic Con. Still no official release from Marvel or Marvel Studios. Although a leaked camera phone quality version is available online. Its not bad.. But, WTF Marvel?! Whats the hold up?! 

Besides that. As I am slowly writing this article, News was announced that Brolin’s Thanos will return for the as of yet “Untitled” Avengers 4. 

Some folks still believe that perhaps Infinity War will be a one and done thing. But i honestly believe that Avengers 4, will be ‘Infinity Gauntlet’.

[SPECULATION MODE: ACTIVATED]

Infinity ‘WAR’ will be most likely the “War” for the Stones themselves. In the teaser trailer that was leaked. Thanos (spoilers) only possesses The Tesserect (space stone) Allowing him to travel from point A to point B. Im pretty sure they show a devestated Collectors vault, which Means he may also have The Ether (reality Stone). I believe there was probably a shot of a wrecked Nova Corp. So perhaps the power stone will be in play as well.. 

This whole film will be the formation of the Gauntlet.. The battle for the stones. 

By the end of it all.. Thanos will raise his completed Gauntlet and.. Then..

“To Be Continued..”

Thats how Infinity War will end. At least thats how it should end.

Well.. I think that will just about do it for this special series.. Thank you all for reading.. Please leave a like, follow, comment. 

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

SPECIAL EDITION: “MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017” Prt.2

Hello, Ladies and Gentelnerds and welcome to Prt. 2 of my special edition segment of “My Thoughts On..” Todays Topic? 

TODD MCFARLANE IS DIRECTING THE SPAWN REBOOT!…( Finally!)

Now.. When i had first heard word of this.. My eyes went straight up Undertaker on me

Like.. “Really?! He’s STILL talking about doing a reboot? And he wants to direct it?! IF it does happen, its gonna be like what…a 5 hour movie?” I had very little faith in the report when i first heard it. Very little faith in Todd’s ability as a director. I just saw it as another Comic Con of him saying “Im gonna do it. Its gonna be great. I have a 500 page script ready to go. Its gonna be great!” the same thing he has been saying for many years now..

BUT! Then i dug a little deeper in to the story. Turns out, Jason Blum 

founder and creator of BlumHouse Productions

The studio behind such films as..

And much more recent and highly acclaimed films such as..

WHIPLASH

SPLIT

GET OUT

Has joined with McFarlane to produce a R-Rated, modestly budgeted reboot of SPAWN! 

The last time Spawn was seen on the big screen was (as of now) 20 years ago with Micheal Jai White in the starring role 

With John Leguizamo co starring as The Clown/Violator 

It was.. 1996-97.. I recently rewatched it on Netflix. The CGI, does not hold up at all! 

Not in the slightest. The acting is.. C-grade at best. The action, is so-so. I was a kid when this came out and it will always hold a place in my heart. But it is time for an upgrade. 

Spawn did have a very successful run on HBO with 3 seasons of an Animated Series.

If the new film is even remotely close to the darkness of the series, then they just may have a real winner.

But what really caught my attention, and actiually made me jump on board with Todd and this Spawn reboot.. Was Todd himself.. 

When the announcement was madeb Todd spoke with Collider  Video and Steve ‘Frosty’ Wientraub. (Video link will be at the end of this article… Dont you DARE skip ahead!.. Im almost finished..)

His thoughts and views on where he wants to take this movie and this story. How he plans to approach it. And his explinations as to why it took so long.. It sold me. He got me on board with this movie. I hope it turns out great. 

HOWEVER! One thing that does concern me.. Todd stated that Sam and Twitch (mainly Sam) would feature heavily in the story. Which makes me wonder, what and how will this effect Kevin Smith’s ‘Sam and Twitch’ BBC Series? 

Will they be completley seperating the two? Will it be connected? Im just curious. 

What also excites me is, If this Spawn is successful. Blumhouse and Image could look in to an extended universe. Wicthblade? 

The Darkness? 

Hell! I want a fucking Haunt movie too!

So, here’s hoping Todd and Blumhouse are successful. Im excited. What do you folks think? Hit me up! 

Heres that video i promised..


Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS: MARVEL/SONY’S “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”(SPOILER FREE)

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds! “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS” is back.. Today’s movie?..

Ok.. Here. We. Go!

THE STORY: “Several months after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens, New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man as a new threat, the Vulture, emerges.” 

I thought the story was a great story. The plot was surprisingly strong. I dont know who can get more credit when it comes to the story. Marvel or Sony. There are some elements that can point to where a Marvel idea was put in and where a Sony idea was put in. There are.. Element problems with the story (I’ll get to that later) But over all, a very good story.

THE CAST:

By far the best cast in a Spider-Man film. Ever! The two stand outs.. Tom Holland and Michael Keaton! Keaton actually was.. A god send for this film.

 If he was not in this movie, as this character.. This would have been a completley different movie. I honestly believe he was the backbone of the movie. Tom was a fantastic Peter Parker and a very good Spider-Man.

 With room to grow as that part of the character. Robert Downey jr. Was RDJ. What more can i say about him that hasn’t been said already. Morisa Tomai is a great version of Aunt May. They play up the idea of her being the ‘Hot Aunt’ very well. Zandaya

 was a bright spot every time she was on screen. The other members of the supporting cast was good.

 Very talented actors and actresses, played their parts perfectly. 

THE POSITIVES: 

Keaton. Keaton. Keaton. Keaton! I’ve never loved The Vulture, until now. He gave that character such.. Life. Such flavor. Such a soul! I rank Vulture just behind The Kingpin in the list of best Marvel Villans, 

1: Loki

2: Kingpin

3: Vulture

4:Ultron

5:Red Skull

6: Zemo

Thats my list.. 

Tom Holland..

Brilliant. Just brilliant. Couldnt have asked for a more perfect Parker. With the added benefit of his Spider-Man of being able to grow and become the best Spider-Man since Maguire. Zandaya was great. The story. The characters. Although we never got this version of The Shocker.. (Spoiler?!)

The version we did get..

Was both interesting and fun! 

Donald Glovers cameo..

Maybe a spoiler.. But heres a hint..

Very interesting. 

The use of comedy was well played. It wasn’t a full blown comedy but there was a lot of comedic moments, all of them used appropriately.

And lastly.. The Twist with Vulture..

Very, very well played. Saw it coming at the moment it was coming.. But very well done and very well executed. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

Ned made me miss Harry Osborne. Not a knock on the actor. He was good. Just did not like the character. Annoying in my opinion. Used very well at the right times. But just.. Did not sit well with me. Maybe in the sequel? Hopefully I’ll get used to him.  Flash Thompson.. Not my Flash, but.. Okay, I’ll go with it. Diversity for the sake of diversity, isn’t always the best thing in my opinion. I could appreciate the freshness of this new Flash Thompson.. Just.. Idk.. Not what im used too, not what i was hoping for. But, I’m gonna go with it. And no.. It is not because of the race of the actor nor the look of the actor. It was the characteristics and the way he was presented that didn’t grab me. He could have at least bulked up or something. Do some pushups kid.  The “Other Twist”?… Fuck You! Reminded me of the shit Nolan pulled in ‘Dark Knight Rises’ Did not appreciate that and it stunk of Sony’s handiwork. A lot of the things i didnt like, felt like things Sony shoved in. I could be wrong, I dont know what was added by whom, but it just felt like things that were not necessary, was Sony’s doing. Spider-man was soo damn clumsy! I have never seen such a clumsy version of spidey, ever, in my whole life. I hated that. He seemed more comfortable in Civil War, taking on other superheroes, then he did swinging through the city. It was weird. Granted. I understand the fact that this is a 15 year old kid, and they are trying something different and new.. But damn! It was like watching George of The Jungle “Watch out for that tree!” Lastley, he seemed.. De-powered. Did not like that. He seemed slower for no apparent reason. I saw a severe lack of Spider-Sense. Like as if he didn’t have it. Hope they change that.

OVERALL: 

The best Spider-Man film since, Spider-Man 2! A great time at the movies. A worthy addition to the MCU. A great movie. Not without its flaws, but what movie doesn’t have some of those. Also, be sure to stick around for both After credits scenes.. Totaly worth it! (😉😁)

I give “SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 6/10. Absolutely Great! A must see!

Let me know your thoughts folks. What did you like, what didn’t you Like. Hit me up. Comment below. Please like and follow! Much appreciate you reading..

Until next time folks.. Peace out!

Wakanda looks beautiful. And just by looking at most of the promotional concept art of the film,
