Well.. Your in luck! Such an opprotunity is smacking you in the face right now!

My twitter buddy and all around cool guy @Geometrick1598 is opening up a one of a kind opprotunity to fellow “OVERWATCH” Players.. Here it is in his own words.. 

“I’m looking for anyone one who wants to be part of a new and fresh team. Submerge Overwatch. PS4 players. Players who really have that dream and passion to improve, and become a pro player. Be part of a team where we would all help each other reach great heights. Players who aren’t toxic and decide to leave the team after one loss. I need for everyone to be positive and always looking for ways to better themselves. Losing only leads to victory. My goal is to have a team that can compete in online tournements, win ladder games, and hopefully one day be in a big prize pool tournament and win.”

“IT’S ALIVE!!: ‘HELLBOY’ Set To Return With R-Rated Reboot!”

A couple of days ago, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola announced on his social media that his baby boy, Hellboy will return to theaters with a R-Rated Reboot with a new cast, crew and writing staff. Further driving in the final nail in the coffin of Del Toro’s Run on the character along with (at this point) the one true Hellboy Ron Perlman

This news comes months after Del Toro himself made this announcment..

So, the Perlman Hellboy sails off in to the sunset. (That sucks!) But! Animation should STILL be an option for all associated with the original films. 

Now, according to Mignola and Collider News, Mignola is among the writers behind the reboot. Directing will be “The Descent” Director, Neil Marshall. Even bigger news is the man who will be trying to fill the very large and impressive shoes of Ron Perlman, 

David Harbour from “Stranger Things” and many other projects.

Looking at a side by side of the two

David is 6’2. He has a good built. He is still relatively young enough to bulk up and can go the distance of multiple films. He kinda has the chin. He is a really good actor. So.. He’s no Ron Perlman… But i can dig this casting. 

The working title is “HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD WITCH” or something like that.. Again, it is a working title and no official announcment has been made. 

Lastly, the fact that the Studio and everyone involved is approaching this with a R-Rated treatment, makes this project very intriguing for me. 

Allow me to explain.

Way back when.. I had a Hellboy game for the PlayStation, 

Not the most beautiful looking game. But! The story was pretty damn dark and spooky. Very gruesome and intense. Every aspect of the game was pretty darn spooky. Lets just say i did not play this game with the light off. (I was a kid! So sue me) Pure gamers will probably get on my ass about the lousy graphics and controls, but this isnt about the gameplay itself. Im referring to the enviroment the game presented. It was fucking dark! Del Toro’s Hellboy was very light in comparison. Not as dark and twisted. This R-Rated reboot could give Hellboy a chance to really let loose and be the character Mignola had created in the first place. 

So, im hyped. Im happy Horn Head is getting another chance to grace the big screen, lets hope they do it justice and do it right. And most importantly, Make It Fun! 

What do you folks think? Are you excited for a new interpretation of Hellboy? Hit me up!

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “The VENOM and BLACK CAT/SILVER SABLE Films In The Works At SONY PICTURES”

Earlier this past week Sony Pictures announced plans for a VENOM stand alone film, set to hit theaters sometime in 2018. And a possible BLACK CAT & SILVER SABLE team up film. Production and release date TBD. 

I was busy with a fan fiction (The Killing Joke:Aftermath. For those of you curious) So i didn’t have time to touch on this bit of news.. But Now I Do..

Lets start with VENOM. 

According to reports SONY has locked down the release date for October 5th, 2018 for the stand alone feature. Reports further stateing that the film will be a rated R outing, strictly seperate from the Spider-man Marvel/Sony MCU. Meaning the plan is for the movie to be a strictly SONY produced project, not jointly with Marvel Studios. Also meaning Spider-Man would not factor into any part of this story or ‘Venom-verse’ if you will. 

I am.. Slightly worried about this. I am intrigued. But worried. The comic book puriest in me says, “The Fuck kind of bull shit is this?! You cant have Venom without Spider-Man!” on the other side of that coin, the movie fan says, “It could be a HUGE mistake, but worth trying. Lets see how it goes.” 

So, I’m torn. We all know the true origin of Venom, 

Eddie Brock was (and is again) the one true Venom. He spins right out of the pages of Spider-Man. Its hard to picture one without the other. 

However, Eddie was not the only Venom. SONY could just as easily make an AGENT VENOM film..

Flash Thompson loses both his legs in battle during a war. Comes home and gets joined to the venom symbiot. That could work. Flash Thompson doesnt have to be exactly tied to Spider-Man because he’s such a secondary character. A historic and important character.. But still secondary non the less. 

 It has the slightest of chances of working. And if it does GREAT! But it also has the potential for failing miserably! Like Spider-Man 3 Venom did..

It’s 50/50 at this point. What does really kinda intrigues me though.. It will (probably) be rated R.. (probably). 
That could work! Venom is that kind of character. That means that if a sequel comes.. Carnage is not far behind..

And Carnage can not be in a live action film and be toned down to a PG/ PG13 version. He has to be full of blood and gore! And the more i think of it.. The more im sold on the idea of a separate Spider-Verse. 

Lets move on to the ladies..

BLACK CAT and SILVER SABLE!

Ones a world class thief, the other a world class mercenary for hire.. Out of these two film ideas, Venom and this one.. I am less torn on this one.. If done right.. This could be pretty darn cool. Felica Hardy is much like Flash Thompson, key character in Spider-Man history.. But completely secondary! She doesnt HAVE to be tied to Spider-Man in order for her character to shine. 

Silver Sable is such a low teir character.. They could just about do anything with her. Just as long as they stay true to certain character traits, just to apease us fans. 

I could see something along the lines of a more badass version of Rush Hour, 48 Hours, and Lethal Weapon.. But with Kick ass ladies in the drivers seat! 

If they have the right story. The right people behind it.. This could be really fucking awesome. 

Venom can go either way depending on the story and the people behind it. SS/BC could do the same, but with a lot less pressure on its shoulders as Venom does. Im interested. Im on board.. 

Lets see what you got SONY!

What do you folks think? Are you excited? Pissed? Dont give a shit? Let me know. Leave a comment. Follow/Subscribe. Thx for reading..

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!: “LA LA LAND” vs “MOONLIGHT” (The Best Picture Debate prt. 2)

Welcome to the second Part to the ‘Best Picture Debate’ that I have with myself between “LA LA LAND” and “MOONLIGHT”. Part 1 was a review of Moonlight, This one.. 

“LA LA LAND” 

THE STORY: A jazz pianist falls for an aspiring actress in Los Angeles.. 

Just want to say quickly… 

FUCK YOU LA LA LAND!! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! And FUCK YOU! 

It is a simple story. They meet cute. They fall in love. Careers start growing and failing and then… FUCK YOU LA LA LAND! 

Ok.. Im gonna be as honest as possible. First 10-15 minutes.. Wasn’t really feeling it much, besides the opening dance/song number. (loved it enough to download it to my mp3. “Another Day Of Sun” great song. Catchy beat.) Anyhoo.. Then Ryan Goslings character showed up and everything was going great! 

I think i may have a Man crush on Ryan Gosling.. (thx a lot La La Land.. Fuckers!) Anyways.. The whole Love Affair between Emma and Ryans’s character was awesome and beautiful. Loved every minute of it! But then shit started getting shitty.. 1.. Just 1 bad desicion on Ryan’s part fucked things up and then things got good. Then things went fucking sideways.. I hated the ending.. I hated it! That is why i say.. “FUCK YOU LA LA LAND! And your little 12 year old looking Director.. FUCK YOU!” 

SPOILER ALERT!! 

THEY DON’T END UP TOGETHER! There.. I said it.. They gave me a beautiful love story, and they ripped my heart out! 

THE CAST: A wonderful cast. Ryan is a fucking star. He should have won best actor at the oscars. I have a feeling he’s going to be another Leo DiCaprio. Great performance after great performance, nomination after nomination.. And then finally, when he does a pretty good role aftdr a really great one, He’ll win an Oscar. Emma Stone.. She was alright. Dont think she deserved the Oscar though.. And in honesty. I hated her character. If and When you see it.. I think you’ll understand why. But she was okay. 
THE POSITIVES: There is a reason why these types of movies arent made anymore.. Because Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire and all those stars of that bygone era, are Dead! These movies died with them. It was nice to see it here. Even for just a bit. The dance numbers were cool. The music was great. The story.. *sigh* was wonderful. For the most part.

THE NEGATIVES: That Fucking ending though! Ruined the whole damn thing! Kinda.. But yea.. It fucking sucked.

OVERALL: “LA LA LAND” is in fact a beautifully shot and well paced movie. Acting. Style. It was a good movie. The ending however.. Kinda hurt it for me.. I give La La Land a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟6/10. 

Keeping in mind how both films made me feel and the experience they gave me respectively.. I believe, “MOONLIGHT” desreved the Best Picture Oscar. From Beginning to End it had me focused and in to the story. La La Land wasn’t that consistent for me. Opening Number aside, i did not care about the beginning of the story until midway through it. The middle was the best part. The end ruined it for me. It pulled the rug right out from under me. And I honestly did not appreciate that about the film. 

Both.. Beautiful film and movies are better off for having them exist.. But, Moonlight deserved the win in my book. 

What do you folks think?! Hit me up!

Until next time folks… Peace Out!

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “THOR: RAGNAROK”

So, early Wednesday afternoon Entertainment Weekly and Marvel Studios reveled thier exclusive first look at “THOR: RAGANROK” set to open later this year. 

First, lets take a look at the early snap shots we have..

Pretty fucking cool if you ask me.

Now! On to ‘My Thoughts..’ part of this article..

First of all.. Lets go back to last month.. When Marvel Studios released a video for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. In the video was a shot of some concept art of Thor and Rocket Racoon..

But when you take a good look at Thor’s hand, 

He’s not holding Mjilnor! I dont think Thor is leaving Ragnarok with Mjilnor.. Granted.. This is just Concept art. They could have changed this before, during and after the filming of Thor 3. I just find this to be very very intriguing. 

These other Concept pieces were released before the EW photos. 

This one of Hela looked Absouloutly awesome.. And the real life Hela.. Looks badass! 

Cate Blanchett looks phenomenal. Her hair and costume kinda resembles Loki’s look.. I wonder if they will have her be Loki’s daughter in the MCU. If not, thats cool. 

Thor’s Look:

Gladiator Thor looks epic! 

The Grandmaster..

I wanted him to be blue!.. My very first thought.. “Why is he not Blue!?!” 

Grandmaster is supposed to be BLUE DAMN IT! 

But.. In retrospect, after that fact passed me.. I remembered, Grandmaster and The Collecter are Brothers.. And this is how Collecter looks in the MCU..

SOooo! There you have it. It makes sence now. May not be thrilled that Marvel didnt go blue.. But whateves.

Now. Comes the part.. Where i speculate my ass off, as to what the plot could be.

At the end of ‘AGE OF ULTRON’ Hulk was sailing away in the quinjet by his lonesome..

Its then, i believe Either Hela, takes him for a grand scheme that she has planned. OR Grandmaster gets his mitts on Hulk for his Gladitorial games on Sakkar. (There will be no Red King in this version of the planet hulk story) Meanwhile, nefarious things are amis in asgard as Thor searches for the truth about the infinity stones. Only to discover Loki’s latest treachery. Forcing the two of them return to earth and search for Odin. With the help of Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange.

During said search, they find Odin in the streets of New York like so..

Some shit goes down and Hela drops in..

 in the battle, Thor looses Mjilnor and is thrusted to the planet Sakkar, where hes forced to battle for his freedom. Only to discover his Friend Dr. Banner and Hulk is trapped there as well. 

Along with a new ally, Valkyrie 

They fight thier way out of Grandmaster’s arena. Unbeknownst to them, Grandmaster and Hela and probably Loki 

Are playing a much more deeper and dangerous game. 

Hela or Surtur 

will most likely possess the Soul Gem. A prize the Grandmaster hopes to attain. 
My guess is.. By the end, it would be revealed that Grandmaster was playing more then 1 game, and by the end of it, loses to Thanos. Giving him either the Infinity Stone his brother The Collecter had (The Ether) or the Soul Stone that he wins from Hela! 

I pray that the scene has Grandmaster telling Thanos, “I know what you are Planning to do with these Stones, Mad Titan. And i must warn you.. You are playing  a most dangerous game..” (PLEASE! Make that happen Marvel!) 

Anywhoo.. I think I have droned on long enough.. These pictures have me even more hyped for Thor 3! I have a lot of high hopes for this installment of the Thor Franchise! 

And before i go.. One honest to goodness prediction, if it doesnt happen I’ll be dissapointed.. BUT! I honestly think.. We wont know until the movies release.. But i think.. Thor: Ragnarok is going to introduce..

Beta Ray Bill. If in fact Thor loses Mjilnor in this movie. Bill is the clear logical choice to be the one to weild the Hammer. 

What do YOU folks think? What do these photos make you feel or think about the next Thor film? Please leave your comments below. Leave a like. Share. Follow. Subscribe.. ANYTHING DAMN IT! Thx for reading folks..

Until next time.. Peace out!

“MY THOUGHTS ON.. FOX’S FUTURE WITH THE X-MEN UNIVERSE”

Greetings, ladies and gentelnerds and welcome to yet another thought provoking article of ‘PBS’ quality proportions… 

So! While WB/DC is trying to get itself together like Humpty Dumpty, and Marvel Studios is full steam ahead into its Phase 4. FOX is trudging ever forward with their X-Men Universe. (Should i even call it that?) 

After the “disappointment” that was ‘X-Men:Apocalypse’ (I personally, enjoyed it and found it entertaining for what it was. Flaws and all.) And many of the actor contracts being done with the completion of that movie. Many believed X-Men’s future would be headed for yet another Reboot. 
However, it appears that would not be the case. Fox is moving forward with the  current X-Men “Continuity” (I use that term very very loosely.) established in ‘Apocalypse’. Meaning many of the young cast members from that film, will be coming back.


Now, that can suggest they will either be coming back for another ‘X-Men’ titled film OR the much talked about “New Mutants” movie. Neither has been confirmed on either matter.

X-FORCE, also is currently in full planning stages. A script and scriptwriter has been established at this point. Cast in characters has not been brought up for discussion as of yet. 

DEADPOOL 2, Is still in development, with a scheduled production date coming this.. Summer? I believe. Even After a little slip up with the whole director situation. Everything seems to be going smoothly. 
And lastly.. Probably the real reason why i wanted to write this article. Fox is currently in talks with long time X-Writer and Producer Simon Kinberg,

to direct the next Upcoming X-Film.. And He himself, has stated that he wants to do, The Dark Phoenix Saga.. 

(Turn away children.. Explosive Rant in t-minus.. 3.2.1..)
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!  Why the fuck cant they leave the damn phoenix saga the fuck alone?! They’ve tried that before, and failed fucking miserably. Its fucking done! Leave it the fuck alone!. There are just too many components needed to tell that story properly and with its proper respect. They’ve fucked the continuty up. They fucked the Phoenix’s actual origin up royally. Not only that.. Kinberg hasnt directed a damn thing.. Ever! Not so much as even a commercial or a DVD extra. He has zero experiance with directing. Now.. Devils advocate.. He has been a producer and writer of these films since X-3: The Last Stand. So hes been in the trenches. He has his tentacles in everything right now. Star Wars, X-Men, lots of things! However.. This is also the same motherfucking dumb piece of shit that gave us.. THIS!..

Thats right folks.. He wrote and produced and (according to some. Not sure if true) Edited/ghost directed, this piece of shit of a.. I dont want to even call it a movie! TRASH!

There’s plenty of other more qualified Directors out there. And more importanly.. There are severel, thousands even, of great X-Men Stories to mine that can be translated for the big screen. For example..

Just to name a few. They seriously need to stop with the Phoenix stuff. Get off her clit for fucks sake! 

Be original or something. FUCK! 

I think im done folks.. Let me knw what you folks think. Hit me up. 

Until, next time folks.. Peace Out!

“R.I.P: HELLBOY 3!”

It is, with a heavy heart.. That I must report. It’s official, official, Official! 
As reported by Guillermo del Toro, via Twitter..

HELLBOY 3, is officially, 100% dead!

This.. Sucks! Its not a surprise, but this sucks.

Del Toro has been going back and forth with Universal Studios for some time now, about getting Hellboy 3 greenlit. Unfortunately (as far as what has been reported and is known) Del Toro wanted too much money for the third film of the franchise.

Approximately 2oo+ million. And Toro was not looking to budge on that request. And we can not blame Universal and the other studios that could have been involved. (Heres a little history lesson) 

HELLBOY (2004) 

HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY (2008)

Both films.. Which I love dearly, and can watch multiple times, has not given the studio a successful financial return. Each grossing less then what they cost. Granted, DVD sales helped later on.. But Box Office Gross would have helped a lot more. We can also look at it from Toro’s POV. He has helped Universal make lots of money with his most recent works. PASIFIC RIM comes to mind. So he’s intitled to ask for some good amount of money to make his vision for the final film come to life. 

Now, perhaps Del Toro brought his asking price down (maybe) Which would have been a smart movie. However.. Its been.. 9 long years since HB2. Perhaps.. Just perhaps.. If Universal is still interested with the Property. They probably feel like they can ReBoot! They have the advantage of time to help them move away from what came before. Which seems like a more reasonable choice on their behalf..

Although, personally.. I would have loved to have seen the continuation of HB & Liz 

Probably my favorite love story in all of cinema. I would have liked to see what wpuld have happened at the very end. Would it have been a happy ending? I hope so. 

Maybe Mike Mignola and Del Toro can take the final story to the Comic Book Page?! Or perhaps and Animated Film. CGI the damn thing. Im sure that would be cheaper then a live action film. And Ron Perlman wouldnt have to do too much under the make up and stuff.. (not that he did his own stunts or anything. But you get what i mean) 

I wouldnt mind a ReBoot for Hellboy. It’s long over due. The BPRD has a massive universe in Dark Horse Comics. Mike has told so many stories. Maybe Universal should consider a small Hellboy Movie Universe. (HMU copyright and restricted by Me!)  However.. Before they do that.. Somehow, someway.. Give me HB3. Finish the story, and then.. Start from scratch. 

Those are just my thoughts and feelings on the situation. How do you folks feel? Hit me up! Comment below, follow/subscribe. Thx for reading.

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
