“MY THOUGHTS ON.. SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2017: What I’m Looking For From The Big Show!”

Wasabi! Ladies and Gentelnerds! Well, Sand Diego Comic Con International 2017 has begun and is in full swing. Already, so far, we’ve gotten some cool new clips and trailers from various properties. As i write this, we are.. Entering day 3. 

Lots of great stuff has come out. Trailers and sneek peeks at stuff like,

THE DEFENDERS:

DEATH NOTE:

THE WALKING DEAD:

PACIFIC RIM 2:

THE INHUMANS:

BRIGHT:

KINGSMAN 2:

And so much more! 

BUT!! It’s now Saturday. Day 3! 

DC/WB and MARVEL STUDIOS are set to have thier presentations at the famed Hall H. So since a lot of things have already dropped before i cpuld finish this article. Im going to focus on just those two.

DC/WB:

It’s been reported that DC/WB has 2 special movie announcements set for thier Hall H Presentation. They did recently let out that SHAZAM is set to go in front of cameras by January or February of next year. And the director of Lights Out and Annabelle 2 is the director of Shazam.  If they are smart, that would not be one of those films they announce. Otherwise it would be a total waste of thier time.
My hope is that those 2 secret films are BATGIRL with an official release and shoot day and also announce thier Lead Actress for Barbra Gordon. Joss Weadon should be the one to make the announcement. And the second film should be, MAN OF STEEL 2! Its being rumored to be ready to go, but we will see. 

There are of course other things to come out of that panel. New Justice League trailer. Possible AQUAMAN footage. Casting Announcements could come as well. And perhaps news of Wonder Woman 2?! 

I’m excited for this panel!

MARVEL STUDIOS:

INFINITY WAR TRAILER!!!!

Just release it already! Geez! 

Also more news and updates for upcoming Marvel Projects. Captain Marvel’s Director, maybe? Some concept art could be cool. More Black Panther and Thor 3 footage could be dropped at the panel as well. More casting news. And lastly.. Perhaps.. The title for Avengers 4 could be dropped at the panel as well. 

Lot’s of things to look forward to tomorrow/today. I/ We’ve been waiting a long time for this day. I pray Marvel comes through. 

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!

“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!

“THE WALKING DEAD: NYCC SNEAK PEEK!(“RIGHT HAND MAN”)”

This dropped a few hours ago. My guess after the “The Walking Dead” New York Comic Con Panel.. Its a sneak peek of the premiere episode coming to AMC October 23rd.
If you havent seen it.. Check it out.. I am still feeling rather numb and in shook.. Why? See for yourself.. One word: Intense!


Once again, AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD, premieres October 23rd. I cant.. I just.. I just cant right now..

Peace Out!

“NORMAN REEDUS as GHOST RIDER?!”

As usual, I am very fashionably late to the rumor mill party.. But! Whateves..

So, it was discussed awhile back that Daryle himself, Norman Reedus, of “The Walking Dead” had expressed intrest in joing the MCU as a very particular character.. IE: The Spirit Of Vengence, GHOST RIDER!

image

Ill make this quick.. SURE! Why not. He’s a great character actor. He can look the part. This notion however does draw two ‘worries’ per say.. One: IF, Marvel was to go forward with a Ghost Rider project, which GR would they go with? Johnny Blaze is done, thanks to Nic Cage.

image

And there have been a couple of new Ghost Riders that were published in the books in recent years.. But the clear choice would be, Danny Ketch!

image

Probably the best Ghost Rider of the bunch, in my opinion. Concern TWO: What would such a project mean to Norman’s role on THE WALKING DEAD?! It’s not a strange occurrence for an actor to be on two shows or projects at the same time. Does Norman’s interest in jumping ship, mean that his time on TWD is nearing an end? (Is Daryel Neegans first victim?) Or perhaps he simply seeks a small dream project during an upcoming offseason of filming TWD. We will have to wait and see on that.

Norman would be a great choice either way. It’ll be fun to see Ghost Rider back on the big screen or small screen and done properly. To have someone as relatable as Norman in the role would be an added bonus.

So, if not Norman, who would you folks cast as Ghost Rider? Let me know in the comments below! Thx for reading.

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!
