BREAKING NEWZ!!: “SONY ANNOUNCES MAJOR STAR FOR “VENOM” SOLO FILM!”

As you may have already heard. Sony has cast Venom for their stand alone film, scheduled for an October 2018 release.

As reported by COLLIDER NEWS’ John Campea (video link at the end of this article) Sony Pictures has cast TOM HARDY as Eddie Brock aka VENOM! 

This is fucking HUGE for me right now. First talk of a stand alone Venom film with out any connection to Spider-Man was a pretty big “Fuck No!” from me. Then i thought about it further after hearing of the Black Cat/ Silver Sable film, i figured.. “Ok, Maybe.. But do it right..” 

NOW.. Your telling me that you got Tom Fucking Hardy as Eddie Brock Venom?.. “FUCK YEAH BITCH!! Lets do this.” 

Granted.. This does not fully guarantee that this is going to be the greatest movie ever. They still have that hurdle of making this story work with out Spider-Man. Best of luck to them. But this right here, is a fantastic move on their part. 

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!

“A NEW HOPE… FOR THE STAR WARS MOVIE UNIVERSE”

After watching the first installment in the ‘Star Wars Story’ films, “ROUGE ONE”, and seeing how fantastic it was. I find myself very excited for the non saga films. 

For those of you who may not know what i mean by ‘non saga’. It is a term used for the SW movies that are not following the main Episode timeline. IE: Return of The Jedi, Force Awakens, and The as of yet untitled Episode 8 due out next year. Those are the saga centric SW films, and movies like Rouge One are not.. There is, however another phrase or word used for those movies.. But it escapes me at the moment.. Its not extended universe.. Ah shit! I cant think of it right now. But for now ill just refer to them as Non Saga Films or (NSF). 

I believe there is a total of  three NSF in the pipeline. Rouge One being the first. Most of them are just Rumord projects like… 
THE BOBA FETT MOVIE 

OBI WAN KENOBI (possible trilogy)

And there is one film that has been made official.. 

THE HAN SOLO (Adventures?) 

Telling the story of a young Han Solo. How he met Chewbacca and how he got The Millenium Falcon from Lando. A cast has already been settled. Most notable, we have a Han, a Lando, a female lead and Khalessi herself Emily Clarke has recently joined the lineup in an unspecified role.. We may even get some Jabba The Hut action in there as well. So all signs are pointing to success for that movie. 

What i Do want to discuss here, very quickly, is.. How Promising the future looks for the NSF, thanks to Rouge One. 

If the other films are half as good and inovative as Rouge One is.. Then i think we can look forward to a whole lot of great movies in the coming future. 

This is indeed new territory for Star Wars and Lucasfilm. Providing new and original content on a yearly or bi-yearly basis. Disney, on the other hand is used to this. Pixar and Marvel Studios being prime examples. Which leaves Lucasfilm in good hands. Especially, in the hands of Kathleen Kennedy. (The Kevin Fiege of the Star Wars universe) She has been behind Star Wars since Empire Strikes Back?!? (if im not mistaken… FACT CHECK BREAK…. Please Stand By:…

NOPE! Shes been involved since Force Awakens. And thats not a Bad start. HOWEVER! She has been involved with MANY movies of our childhood. From E.T to GOONIES, INDIANA JONES, and JURASSIC PARK just to name a few. Seriously. Look up her IMDB page.. Like a trip down memory lane. 

OH!! And the Non Saga Films are called ANTHOLOGY FILMS! anthology… Could not remember that before. 

Did you know Gale Ann Herd, Executive Producer of The Walking Dead, was a producer of the Terminator movies since 1984?… Wait.. Im getting off subject.

Anyhoo.. Rouge One, Han Solo, and maybe Obi Wan, are literal trial runs with this Extended Star Wars ‘Anthology’ Universe. And I for one, am supee hyped.. But may i say.. Forget about Boba Fett.. GIVE US A DARTH VADER MOVIE!! 

If you’ve seen Rouge One.. You understand WHY we need and deserve a Darth Vader stand alone movie! 

I think I’ve droned on long enough.. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“ROUGE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY” (A NON-SPOILER MOVIE REVIEW)

Do not fear, There are No Spoilers to be found within this Movie Review. 

“ROUGE ONE: A Star Wars Story” or as i would like to call it, ‘Star Wars: Episode 3 3/4- Rouge One, Has finally hit theaters nation/world wide. 

Directed by Gareth Edwards 

The man behind 2014’s ‘GODZILLA’

Rouge One is only his Second, count em, Second Big Budget Film.. And OMG does he not knock it out of the fucking park! Lets go down the list..

THE STORY:

Telling the events of why and how the Rebel Alliance got thier hands on the plans and Blueprints for the original Deathstar. 

Rouge One has a brilliant story. You wont realize how badly you wanted to know this story, until you finally see it. Like most Star Wars films.. It drags abit at the start, but once it kicks in to gear, it dont stop. There are a lot of fantastic uses of Easter Eggs and call backs. It plays well in the time frame its placed in, while still feeling fresh and new. Without feeling out of place.

THE CAST: 

Amazing.. Abdouloutly amazing. Every single character was.. Perfect. There are alot of new faces… And.. Some Old faces in this movie. 

(no spoilers) Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso was great, Diego Luna as Cassian Andor was heartfelt. Donnie Yen needs more work in America.. He is fucking awesome as Chirrut Imwe, the Blind ‘jedi-esq’ Force Beliver. The real stand out thou? Alan Tudyk as K2SO 

The reprogrammed Imperial Droid that makes up or rag tag team of Rebels. I think he ranks up there with R2 and BB8 in awesomeness. Trust me.. He is badass. 

THE POSITIVES: Everything! Gareth Edwards’s great directing. The fantastic Cast. The Writing. Everything is a Positive. 

THE NEGATIVES: The dragging start and… Hmm… I cant.. Maybe the.. Ah hell.. I dont really have any negatives to think of. It could have been longer! There. I found one negative. Its just a bit too short.

 It’s like that one great blow job you dont want to end.. But it does. Yall know what i mean.. 😉😌

OVERALL: Rouge One: A Star Wars Story.. Is a Beautiful addition to the mythos. It fits perfectly in the time frame. It gives us a batch of new heroes to love. It gives us a good new villain to dispise. And it gives us a chance to find newfound respect for older characters. I give “ROUGE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY” A 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 8/10. A MUST see for any and all Star Wars Fans, new and old! Get your asses to a theater near you and watch this movie.. Then, when you get home, pop in “Episode 4 A NEW HOPE” Everything is gonna make so much more sense. Trust Me. 

If you’ve seen Rouge One, what are your thoughts? Did you love it? Hit me up. Leave a comment below, and please follow and subscribe to the blog. Thanks for reading folks. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“I TOLD YOU SO!: ‘GOTHAM CITY SIRENS’ IS OFFICIALLY IN THE WORKS!”

So.. it has been reported by ‘Hollywood Reporter’ that WB/DC Has officially proclaimed that the stand alone Harley Quinn film WILL be a “GOTHAM CITY SIRENS” movie. That, is also its title, and Suicide Squad director David Ayer.. 

Will be at the helm of this film. 

As we already know.. The Birds of Prey are going to be in the film as well.. 

And Marggot Robbie is returning as Harley Quinn 

Nothing else, concerning this particular movie has been announced as of yet. Besides the Title, who’s directing and What it is gonna be. I’ll try and fill you in as soon as anything drops.

So, until next time folks.. I TOLD YOU SO!! 😃😄👍

“FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM: MOVIE REVIEW” (NO SPOILERS)

Its been.. 6 years since ‘Harry Potter: And the Deathly Hallows part 2’ was in theaters. After a stint on British Broadway, Author and Creator J.K Rowling has brought us back to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, with

A story that follows Newt Skamander. The famous wizard that wrote the text book that young wizards read at Hogwarts, “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find them” 

THE STORY: The year is 1926 and Young Newt Skamander travels to new york city with a magical case full of amazing creatures. When some of his creatures are accidentally let loose on the city, Newt is brought into events that could very well change the Wizarding World forever. 

The story itself was great. Very well written. Fantastic Beasts is a wonderful addition to the Harry Potter Universe.  

THE CAST: Eddie Redmaine is fantasticly awkward as Newt. 

A relatively non social person who dedicates his life to the magical creatures of the world. The supporting characters are perfectly acted and casted. Colin Farrel was great.. (waisted, but great!) Ezra Miller is a surprise. But the real stand outs.. Are the Beasts.. 

They are beautiful and well crafted creatures. The pre-depression era was a well crafted world. Very well done. 

THE POSITIVES: It is a beautiful movie. The creatures are stunning. Newt and the supporting cast are very fun. Colin Farrel was great. The wizarding world in a new area was fun to see. 

THE NEGATIVES: Colin Farrel was totally waisted. Not going to go into any spoilers.. But he was really waisted. There wasnt enough focus on the ‘Fantastic Beasts’. I felt that in order for them to set up the next set of movies, they sacrificed the main stories potential. Which wasnt the best idea, but i understand what they wanted to do. 

OVERALL: Fantastic Beasts has a whole lot of potential to be the next best Wizarding Franchise. Focus more on the characters and what happens to them and not lose them in the wider string of events.  But overall.. It was a really good film. Worth watching for any Harry Potter fan. I give “FANTASTC BEASTS and WHERE TO FIND THEM” a 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5/10! 

Have you seen Fantastic Beasts yet? What did you think? Hit me up! 

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out! 

“‘BIRDS OF PREY’ CONFIRMED FOR ‘HARLEY QUINN’ SOLO FILM!”

Just before the release of ‘SUICIDE SQUAD’ This past August, WB/DC announced that a Harley Quinn film could be in the pipeline.. (for my thoughts on that *click link below*) 

http://wp.me/p5F7r8-sO
Then, after the success of the film, the studio made it official, Harley Quinn will get her solo movie.. (More of my thoughts in following link..) 

http://wp.me/p5F7r8-AL

NOW! As of earlier this week, WB/DC announced that indeed, The Birds Of Prey will appear in the Harley Quinn Movie! 

(Who has two thumbs and said this will happen, a long time ago?… 👍👍 THIS GUY!)

Which makes me wonder.. What Birds Of Prey lineup should we get?! Heres my personal suggestions.. 

BATGIRL (Barbara Gordon) 

She does not have to be Oracle in the Movie Universe.. Robbing us of a proper Barabar Gordon Batgirl would be a mistake in my opinion. 

BLACK CANARY 

Obviously. You cant have the Birds without the Canary! 

HUNTRESS

Nuff said, really. 

And just to really spice things up a bit.. Add in..

ZATANNA 

We already got Enchantress in the DCEU, if Harley comes across Zatanna, she could be like.. “Great, another Magic Lady!” 

Lastly.. I would really appreciate a cameo or introduction of Kate Kane into the DCEU..

(aka) BATWOMAN 

She would be an awesome addition in to the universe. (just my opinion) 

I’ll try and be more on point with news like this, as it breaks.Heres hoping my guessing right streak continues when they announce The Gotham City Sirens will show up.. 

So what do you folks think? Leave your comments below and please follow and or subscribe. Thank You. 
So, Until next time folks.. Peace Out!
