“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!

BREAKING NEWZZZ! (?) Maybe?! “DEADPOOL 2 has a CABLE?”

Has Josh Brolin just confirmed he has been cast as CABLE?! I literally just spotted this on my Instagram Feed.. I might be a little late with this news.. But wow! 

Haven’t heard anything yet to the contrary. He could be trolling thr fans maybe.. But wow! How cool is this?! 

He’s not only THANOS The Mad Titan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 

But now, He joins the Marvel/Fox X-Universe as CABLE!

In my research before posting this.. 

IT IS OFFICIAL! 

JOSH BROLIN is our CABLE in DEADPOOL 2!

I am loving this news. what do you folks think?!

MY THOUGHTS ON.. “The Future Of Logan and X23!” (WARNING: Logan Movie Spoilers Ahead)


Logan is dead.. There.. I said it! 
Someone asked me (@anarchyanthon on twitter) Would I want to see a follow up to Logan, that followed Laura (x23)? 

I said.. “I wasnt sure” I had just seen the movie and the wounds were still freash. Now, i am a few days removed and i can honestly say.. “No!” 

Whats done is done. LOGAN ended perfectly. It would be a shame to try and follow such a fitting conclusion to Wolverine’s story. 

Thats not to say Fox should be done with X23. Not at all. They should be done with this version of her though. This version of X23 has served her purpose. 

Dafne Keen was perfect. She played the part beautifully. But i think we can step away for now.

Fox, should let us deal with the events of Logan. Rest. Regroup. And within the next 5 years, maybe.. Just maybe.. We will be ready for a fully grown, full fledged Laura Kinney, X23 aka The All New Wolverine! 

Back in the day, i posted a possible way they could introduce her and Daken (Wolverines son) in to the X-Men Universe.. You can check it out here 👇

“THE WOLVERINE LEGACY: WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN IN THE NEXT X-MEN SERIES!” (APOCALYPSE SPOILERS POSSIBLE… – http://wp.me/p5F7r8-tv
which weirdly enough.. We kinda got Daken in ‘Logan’ (Spoiler Alert!) The bad guys create another clone, X24 which looks just like Logan, but full of berserker rage! A mindless killer.

The bonus ending of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ featured Essex Corp. Mr. Sinister’s company. The scene that showed a mysterious individual taking Wolverine’s blood  from Alkaline Lake. Non of that played into ‘Logan’. No Essex Corp. No, Mr. Sinister. Nothing. Perhaps they will hold on to that pay off in a future movie? I think that would be best. Unless they completley scrap that idea. Then that would be yet another dumb ass decision by Fox. 

Hugh.. Is done. Wolverine.. Is, for now.. Gone. In a few years. We move on to X23, have Wolverine as just a faceless figure who hangs around in hushed voices and fond memories. He’s out there. But we dont have him on screen for a while. Lets focus on X23. 

Those are just my thoughts. Let me know what you think. Hit me up, comment below. Please like and follow the blog. Thx for reading folks.

Until next time.. Peace out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!: “LOGAN”(No Spoilers)

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

Today’s Movie (if it isnt obvious..) 

“LOGAN” 

THE STORY: 

James Howlett (aka: Logan) has been serving out his years as a Limo Driver for hire down in the southwest. His days as an X-Man long gone and far in the past. After a mysterious event took out the X-Men, all that is left, is him and a sickly and aged Professor Xavier. Mutants are all but extenict. Logans quiet life is turned upside down when a young girl with the same powers as his, shows up

with a band of secret government soldiers, known as “The Revers” on her tail. 

Logan reluctantly comes to the girls aid. Only to discover her shocking history and what it means for his future.

Very, very.. VERY loosely based on the hit graphic novel “Old Man Logan” 

By Mark Millar and Steve Mcniven. The only similaritys are Logan, it takes place in the future and theres a road trip.. Literally.. Thats all that has this film resembeling the comic. But you know what.. It does not matter.

“LOGAN” is a beautiful movie. It transcends beyond a comic book film. Its a movie about a man coming to grips with himself. Past, Present and Future. After so many years of physical and mental abuse, from himself and outside forces, Logan learns what it means.. To be human. To feel, Happy.. To feel Love. The story, is short for the films 2 hr run time. But it is very simple and to the point. James Mangold directed a masterpiece of a film. He also wrote the story and co-wrote the screenplay. Which was brilliant. 

THE CAST: 

First and foremost.. Dafne Keen, stole the Mother Fucking Show! 

Her X-23 was probably the best part of the movie. Besides Hugh Jackman, She was.. Phenomenal. She literally stole every frame she was in. As i did some research as i began to write this review. It turns out, this is the young ladys very first film debut.. And what a debut! She had a previous role on a tv series called “Refugees”. But Logan is her first feature film and she Rocked it.

It sucks that this is Hugh Jackmans final turn as Wolverine. But he really brought his A game for this.. And thats saying something. Cause everytime he puts on those claws, he is on point. Every Time. But, somehow.. This felt different. His performance was.. Heavier, of you will. He reall capped it all off pefectly and i Hate to see him go. I really do. 

Patrick Stewart’s Xavier is as always, wonderful and yet.. Extremely differnt. I’ve never heard Xavier drop so many F bombs in my entire life. And im happy i got to experience it. This also being Stewarts last go around as Xavier.. It was a beautiful, yet heartbreaking send off for him and the character. 

THE POSITIVES: 

Direction. Acting. Story. Cinematography.. Everything was beautifully done. Honestly.. Its near perfection. 

THE NEGATIVES: 

The fact that it is not in any continuity to any of the previous films at all, is not a negative. What, IS a negative for me.. I would have loved to have seen the Continuity it would have sprang from. (if that makes any sense) I wish more of the other movies were within this time frame.

 For a 2hr 17 min film.. I wanted more. It left me wanting more. Not that it doesnt end well.. I just didnt want it to end, i guess? I feel like more could have been added in the begining, middle and end. I feel like, there might have been more material left on the editing floor and i hope we get a longer cut on the DVD release (hopefully).

 There could have been more.. Bonding time for X23 and Logan. Or i would have at least appreciated a little more togetherness. 

A flashback of (SPOILERS) when (Spoiler) reveals (Spoiler) before hes (Spoiler) by (Spoiler) Wow.. Didnt think i could pull that off.. Now! Here’s the trick. If you have seen the film, and can guess what the fuck im talking about. Please feel free to hit me up with the answer and your thoughts.

OVERALL: 

“LOGAN” is in fact, the “The Dark Knight” of the X-Men franchise of Movies (and it only took them 8 movies and 20 some odd years to get it done.) An honest to goodness Masterpiece from start to finish. It grabs you by the neck on a coaster ride of emotions, and doesnt let you go until the very end.. And when its over.. You wish you never stopped. You will laugh. You will cry. You will be happy. You will be sad. And then, when all is said and done, You Will Be Greatful. I give “LOGAN” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 9/10 (probably my higest score to date.) You have to see this. 

Thank you all so much for reading and before I go.. I just want to send a message to James Mangold and the People at 20th Century Fox.. Although i know they may never read this.. “Please, Re release Logan around Oscar voting season later this year, in Black and White. Have Hugh Jackman up for best actor, Patrick Stewart best Supporting, Dafne Keen Best Supporting Actress( or best Lead is fine) and Logan for Best Picture and Best screenplay and best cinematography and yourself for Best Director. This Movie.. Truly deserves such recognition. And also.. Thank You! Thank you for such a beautiful and wonderful movie experiance.”

Until Next Time Folks… Peace Out!

“A LOOK AT: SAN DIEGO COMIC CON! 2015”

image

And in Geek it is also known as, “The Nerdgasm Overload Center!”

Ok! I know it’s not! Can’t blame a guy for trying to start a trend!

Anywho.. Ladies and gentelnerds! We are, roughly, a week removed from, “SAN DIEGO COMIC CON INTERNATIONAL!” Where geeks of all Shapes and Sizes, Clear Skined and Achned, Creeds and Religion, All Types, Converge to see What’s Hot, Whats New and Whats to Come.

In this here blog, I’ll try and convey some of my thoughts on what stood out to me! Lets start with..

MARVEL’S ABSENCE!

image

For the first time since its inception in 2008/09. MARVEL STUDIOS  and THE MCU did not dominate ‘HALL H’. In fact, Marvel Studios didn’t go at all! Marvel Comics was there.. But that’s it. Realizing that they could draw more buzz on their own with their “Marvel Event” it would appear Marvel Studios was like, ‘Fuck it! We got this on our own. We don’t need to spend a shit load of cash (Not that that would be a problem for them.) to rent out HALL H. We can spend half that amount to rent an entire theater and showcase our own shit whenever we want!’ OR! We can take in to account. As of right now. Marvel Studios is set to be in production of up to Two to Three Films a year, for the next 3 or 4 years. A huge order for a single company. So, they may have a lot on their plate at the moment. However, some sort of extra push could have been put in to promoting ANTMAN.. But, I’m just saying.

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS!

image

The SW panel (Which you can see, if you already haven’t, in the link below!) Didn’t have a lot of new things to show us. Except a really cool behind the scenes featurette, which showcased just some of the awesome things that went behind creating and combining the Practical and Digital Effects that are in the film. And also, gave us a glimpse of what Simon Peg’s cameo role will be. The panel itself was really cool. Seeing the new cast. Getting small insights into who they were playing and  what their characters are about. Noticeable absences of Andy Serkis and And seeing, for the first time in who knows how many years, the original Trinity, of Luke, Han and Leia together on the same stage. Was truly awesome! Don’t take my word for it.. Check it out!

KEVIN SMITH’S “YOGA HOSERS”!

image

The Legendary Kevin Smith, accompanied by his lovely daughter Harley Quinn Smith, Debuted the trailer for his latest Film ‘YOGA HOSERS’ the second in his True North Triliogy. (Soon to be followed by “MOOSE JAWS!” Which is just ‘Jaws’, But with a Moose!) unfortunately that trailer has not yet been released as of this time that I am writing this article. Yoga Hosers is, relatively, a spin off of the delightfully twisted TUSK. (In which a man played by Justin Long is transformed, in the worst possible way, into a Walrus. If you have not yet seen Tusk… The fuck is wrong with you!?)The film stars the aforementioned Harley Quinn Smith and Lilly Rose Depp, Reprissing their roles from Tusk, as two store Clerks, who happen upon a mystery and battle some creepy Monsters. I honestly can’t wait for This movie. If its as Fun and fucked up as Tusk was.. I’m so there!

FOX’S DEADPOOL AND XMEN: APOCALYPSE!

image

“AHH!! IM SO TOUCHING MYSELF TONIGHT!!” The Deadpool trailer alone stole the whole Fox Studios Comic Con Panel. Although that trailer is also unavailable at the moment. However, there is a bootleg version circling the web. I prefer mine to be Hi-Def. The X-Men panel was also very enjoyable. If you care to see Those panels, Check out the links below…

And finally.. After so many years of So-So panels and presentations and coming in as número 2! (Behind Marvel of course)… This years comic con belonged to DC and WB PICTURES! And to them I say.. image

Starting with…

THE SUICIDE SQUAD!

image

It certainly wasn’t the best panel. The cast and the Director, David Ayer, came on stage. Said their hello’s to the crowd. Did a Suicide Squad cheer and Will Smith made a quick statement, regarding how hard they are working to bring us the best film ever. And off they went. BUT! Finally, we got to see what they had so far, presented to us in a pretty badass trailer! (More on that trailer in another blog. A “TRAILER REVIEW!” Perhaps.. Stay Tuned) Then.. We got the best thing ever!

BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE!image

OH! GOD, YES!! The trailer we deserved long ago! (Won’t go in to the trailer here.. That’s for another blog.) It really made the night and surprisingly stole the spotlight from Deadpool. The Panel itself was okay. It was really cool to actually HEAR from the cast.. Instead of them just standing there and waving. Here’s the panel, in case you haven’t seen it…

Although I consider DC/WB the winners of COMIC CON 2015, I do feel they could have done just a little more to truly own the Weekend! Marvel always makes a grand spectacle each year they are there. Im Not saying that DC needs to send someone out dressed like a character and make show. But they could have done something to make them really stand out from the rest. Besides relying on some trailers. AWESOME TRAILERS.. But still just trailers.

Sorry this took so long to get to you folks. Hope you enjoyed it, and would love to hear your thoughts. I got some pretty cool things coming up here on the blog. So, stay tuned. Thank you all for your patience.

So, Until next time folks… Peace out!

 

Why, I Find Myself More Excited For “DEADPOOL” Then “BvS”!!

image

HEY!!! “It’s been awhile” Im back baby! My Youtube channel has had me a little preoccupied as of late.. But enough with the pleasantries. Lets talk 2016! The Year Comic Book Films really kick into overdrive! And nerds and Nerdettes around the world lose their minds and bowels over all the awesomeness! Today, I want to discuss two in particular.. DEADPOOL and BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. Im really excited for BvS. i’m a huge Batman fan.. (not at all happy with the whole Affleck casting… but.. we’ll see.) Its going to be a major movie event! Two of the greatest Heroes of our time, together for the first time EVER on the big screen! Its literally going to be EPIC… BUT…Truth be told, at this moment.. I’m more hyped for DP, then BvS!

image

Yes… Both films are literally due out within months of each other next year! DP in FEBUARY and BvS in March (if I’m not mistaken.. Unless they moved it again!)

So How could I be more excited for Deadpool?! You ask!? Well, lets look at some facts, shall we..

Two years ago, SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2013, Zack Snyder and WB  announced BATMAN vs. SUPERMAN! Summer 2015! HORAY!! Oh wait hold on! Did we say 2015?!? Sorry. We meant 2016!

They finished the film late 2014.. That’s right, they finished it late last year… Last fucking year! So, here we are now little over one year away from a movie we have been waiting for our entire lives, and the only things we’ve had to wet our appitates for the past two years have been… Photos….. STILL PHOTOS! Pretty awesome photos.. But, PHOTOS! It’s like..

“Hey folks! Your worried we cast a talentless actress as WONDER WOMAN? Well worry no more… Here’s a photo!”

image

“You wanna know what the Bat-Suit looks like?!?… Here’s a black and white photo!”

image

“Oh! You want to know who else is gonna be in the movie for a few minutes of the two and a half hour film?!.. Heres another one toned color Photo!”

image

“Had a problem with the Facebook Guy we got to play Lex Luthor?.. Well.. HERES ANOTHER FUCKING BLACK/WHITE PHOTO!”

image

(SDCC: 2014) “Oh, you want to hear a little something about the film from the stars themselves.. FUCK YOU! THEY’RE JUST GONNA STAND HERE AND SMILE AT YOU FOR A FEW SECONDS! And here’s a short scene that you’ll only ever see from fucked up camera phone angles!”

image

Sure. The small glimpses are awesome and exciting… But that excitement fades over time. Yes! We are still about a year away from the films release, so I may be being over zealous in wanting more now.. But, come on… I think we’ve been waiting long enough.

On the other hand!

image

(Never thought I would EVER say this…) FOX, is doing everything right with hyping up DEADPOOL! Ryan Reynolds himself has been really playing the whole band in trying to get this thing going. Ever since SDCC ’14 and the “accidental”  “Leak” of the digital test footage for a DP movie, That Reynolds participated in producing.

With the help of the overwhelming support of Fans behind him, Reynolds convinces the studio to get things moving!

(Writers Note: No doubt, thanks to the “Leak” FOX was convinced. But still, the studio held off from going 100% behind the film. Because they wanted to wait till after the release of X-MEN:DAYS OF FUTURE PAST and so, once that was the huge success it was. DP got the green light.)

Sure things went a little quiet after that. Then came word FOX was looking to recast COLLOSUS, for DP. Then Gina Corano joins in as ANGEL DUST, and soon after that. Reynolds releases a photo of him overseeing the making of the costume.

image

After that came the casting of DP’s love interest, COPY CAT, whose to be played by Morena Baccarn. Shortly there after we got this gem..

image

THE most accurate looking superhero costume for a feature film since, the first Chris Reeves SUPERMAN film, and the first SPIDERMAN! (SPOT ON!)

Then Came the back and forth amongst fans and film aficionados on whether or not the film should be R or PG-13! A lot of much smarter folks close to the film industry stated the film should be PG-13, whilst Fans rallied for a hard R version of DEADPOOL!

The studio themselves stating they were interested in a PG-13 film to appeal to a much wider audiance. Ryan kept  fans up to date with the happenings all the way to just recently. On April 1st. With this truly awesome video..

Filming has already started. The cast looks great. The costume is magnificent. The story sounds awesome. I’m really looking forward to DEADPOOL! I can’t wait. That’s not to say I’m not at all excited about BvS.. But geez compare the marketing so far and really can anyone blame me for feeling the way I do at this moment. Who knows?!? DC/WB might put out something very soon that’s gonna get me more hyped. Word on the streets is that a BvS Trailer is supposed to hit screens during the release of MAD MAX:FURY ROAD! Lets hope that that’s true and DC can hook me back in. (I pray that it will be in freaking COLOR! For Pete’s sake!)

Well! That’s gonna do it for me and my nonsense! Hey, let me know what you think! Which film has you more excited at the moment? What do you think of my views? Do you think I’m bat-shit crazy?!
