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! “MOONLIGHT” vs “LA LA LAND” (The Best Picture Debate Prt.1)

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds, and welcome to a Special Edition of WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS! 

Every since the Oscars Best Picture debacle, 

I found myself very curious about these two films. “Did The Right Movie Win?” My hat was not in either of thier respective corners, but i have been interested in watching them in my own time. But i wanted to answer this question to myself. So This week is gonna be a two part movie review.

I saw “Moonlight” First. So.. I will start there. (SPOILERS POSSIBLE)

THE STORY: 
A chronicle of the childhood, adolescence and burgeoning adulthood of a young black man growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. 

The story structure itself reminded me a lot of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ as in, How it told a period of time in the life of the main character throught the years of his life. From Childhood, Teen age and Adulthood. It is a solid film. From beginning to end. It opened my eyes to the African American Gay Community, and how difficult it could be for a black man to be comfortable with who they are when thier own community can be so against them. Its sad and frustrating to see, even as a straight hispanic man. I have a 1 favorite part in the whole film.. After being beaten by a close friend because of the cowardly workings of a school bully, The main character comes back to school the next day, and cracks the bull upside the back with a chair! I loved every second of that scene.

THE CAST:  is in top form. Mahershala Ali’s character.. Was, unfortunately, in the film for a very short period of time. The main character, (Known as Little, Chiron and Black through the three stages of his life) Played by Alex R. Hibbbert (Little) Ashton Sanders (Chiron) and Trevante Rhodes (Black) was the key focal point while every one else felt more like players in the story. That is not to say the acting wasn’t wonderful.. It just, for me, i didnt care as much about them. 

THE POSITIVES: Great Story. Solid acting. Great pacing. Nicely shot and directed. Great Message.

THE NEGATIVES: The director had an annoying habit of shooting certain scenes in a constant, one take circle. I almost felt dizzy. Some bad editting choices at certain parts. Mahershala Ali should have had a much more longer, more prolific role. He deserved the Oscar.. But i wanted more.

OVERALL:
A beautiful film. An important film. All around well done. I give “MOONLIGHT” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 7/10. Worth seeing for any socially conscious Human Being!

Stay Tuned For Prt 2. “LA LA LAND” 

Until Next time folks.. Peace Out!
