FIRST LOOK with NEW TRAILER: Uncharted!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Like most everybody else, I love to play video games when I was a kid. But around the time I was heading into high school I slowly lost interest. Years later, well into my 20s and without a clue about the current state of video games, I was meeting a friend for dinner and we planned to meet at his place first. When I arrived his houses he was playing some game called Uncharted 2…

I couldn’t believe my eyes. When I thought of video games, I thought of donkey Kong country. This was like an incredible combination of a movie and video game. Uncharted I felt like a film that you played, that you participated in. I was so captivated this one experience got me back into video games. Specifically, I really like the adventure, third person, story driven games like the Uncharted series, Batman Arkham series, The Last of Us, etc.

The Uncharted games are arguably the most somatic games that have ever been made. So it’s easy to see how they should translate well into great, Indiana Jones style adventure films. Well this trailer doesn’t quite knock it out of the park from me, I still think this has the potential to be a lot of fun.

Now that Spider-Man: No Way Home has become one of the most successful films of all time, all eyes are on Tom Holland to see if he can still be a draw without the Spidey suit. I think he just needs the right project, hopefully Uncharted is it. Take a look at the new trailer below:

NEW TRAILER & MORE: The Batman! (UPDATED!)

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

In the immortal words of Kevin Smith, ”F*ck you, take my money!”. Damn, this looks fantastic. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I think Matt Reeves is a inspired choice for director, the cast is phenomenal (Colin Farrell as The Penguin? That’s worth the price of admission alone), I think Pattinson is going to crush it as Batman. However, I don’t think I really got truly excited until I watched this trailer.

I absolutely adore the looks of the rogues gallery in this movie. In a stroke of genius, The Riddler was clearly inspired by the infamous Zodiac serial killer, resulting in a profoundly disturbing look.

Colin Farrell is unrecognizable as Oswald Cobblepot and anyone who’s been following his work over the last 10 years or so, knows that he’s going to absolutely murder this role.

Finally, Zoe Kravitz looks amazing as Selina Kyle. I love her simple, back to basics look, which is clearly inspired by her appearance in a Frank Miller‘s Batman: Year One. After all, she’s supposed to still be relatively early in her career in this movie.

Then there are these guys, who I’m not quite sure what to make of. If I didn’t know anything about the movie, I would guess that there some version of The Jokerz, a violent gang first introduced in Batman Beyond, who saw themselves carrying on the anarchy and legacy of The Clown Prince of Crime. In Batman Beyond, most if not all were born years after the death of The Joker. They never saw what Gotham was like during a real Joker attack. Because of of The Joker’s “legend”, the gang revered him as an outlaw and anarchist, while in reality they don’t really understand the death and evil that The Joker represented.

Batman Beyond takes place decades in the future where Batman and the Joker haven’t been seen in years and are presumed missing or dead. A group of punks who didn’t really understand the evil that The Joker represented, thought he was just decided to start cool and started The Jokerz. In the years since their formation, they’ve been terrorizing the good, decent people of Gotham. While they aren’t a major threat like Bane, or any other major members of Batman’s rogues gallery, they can still be quite dangerous and violent.

I also have a sneaking suspicion that there may be a few more villains appearing in this film, that they’ve been able to keep hidden from the audience so far.

I’m not the first person to say this, but I have a sneaking suspicion that there’s more to this story than meets the eye. I think it’s possible that The Riddler could have a benefactor, someone pulling his strings. But who? The Joker? Hush? If there is indeed someone behind the curtain, I think villain(s) that makes the most sense in light of this new trailer, would be The Court Of Owls. Green

The Court of Owls are a secret society that have exerted their wealth, influence, and power over Gotham, from the shadows, since the founding of the city. This new trailer makes it clear that Riddler knows Batman is Bruce Wayne and that the central mystery of the story seems to have something to do with The Wayne family. The Waynes are of course, one of the oldest and most respected families in Gotham. In the comics, multiple members of The Wayne family (as well as their lifelong friends, The Pennyworths) had their run-ins with The Court and their deadly enforcers, The Talons.

Talon ( The Court of Owls personal enforcers and assassins)

The Court of Owls are among my favorite modern Batman villains and we haven’t seen them on the big screen yet. Not only would it be great to see something a little different from a Batman antagonist, they’re just plain cool. This is all just speculation, of course. Regardless, this is definitely a movie to keep your eyes on.

The Batman opens 3/4/2022

New The Matrix Resurrections Trailer

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

Warner Bros. just released a new trailer for The Matrix Resurrections. I’m cautiously optimistic. The trailers have been intriguing, but we’ve been burned so many times before by shitty movies with great trailers. The Matrix is a classic and I’m a big advocate for The Matrix Reloaded. I’d even goi as far to say that I love The Matrix Reloaded. Not to mention The Animatrix which is pretty fucking metal. There’s potential here, that’s for sure. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the filmmakers can tap into the power of The One and pull another sci-fi masterpiece out of their ass. Crazier things have happened…

Spider-Man: No Way Home Villain Posters! First Look – Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse Teaser!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

I’ve been saying this for a while now, but I’m going to formally call it, right here: If Spider-Man: No Way Home actually works and turns out to be at least a solid movie, it is going to be the highest grossing film of all time. I was very wary about everything in this project from the beginning, and the marketing has slowly want me over. Like these cool villain-themed character posters that were just released. I always love a good poster and I hope they do a few more of these posters with the film’s other villains.

Now, I think it’s been a while since my anticipation for a film has been quite this high. Interestingly, while Marvel and Disney make The MCU Spider-Man movies, the characters film rights are still owned by Sony. It’s an unusually smart business relationship, especially in Hollywood where egos and executives without a creative bone in their body tend to fuck up lucrative deals like this. Sony knows that Marvel Studios knocks it out of the park almost every time with their films, and Marvel Studios knows that The MCU would have always felt incomplete, if Spider-Man had never been a part of it. It’s a win-win. The fans are happy, Disney and Sony get dump trucks full of money pulled up their houses. Everyone gets a piece of the pie!

However, there has been an interesting development regarding the release of this highly anticipated upcoming movie. When a new film comes out, critics and entertainment journalists are shown a film, around a few weeks before the movie hits theaters. Occasionally, A studio will have a movie on its hands so bad, that they won’t even bother with doing a press screening. Because the studio knows it doesn’t matter when the movie is see. The reviews will be so bad, that people are going to wipe their ass with the movie’s poster.

Which is why it’s so surprising that when Spider-Man: No Way Home, is screened for critics, they will only be shown 40 minutes of the nearly 2 hour and 40 minute film. Something like this has never really been done before. Which is why, in the opinIon of most movie pundits, myself included, this isn’t a reflection on the movie’s quality in anyway. In fact, most insiders believe the 40 minuet press screening it is all about how this movie is going to be way, way fucking crazier then we thought. Pretty much as soon as the film began pre-production, there were rumors abound about secret cameos (or more than cameos) from characters like Venom to Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, reprising their roles as the Spider-Man of their respective universes (AKA movie universes). My guess is, forget Tobey and Andrew, there’s going to be some next level shit in this movie and Marvel is going even further than usual to keep any surprises under wraps. Tearing open the multiverse opens up a lot of possibilities.

So here’s my theory, which is just complete speculation, earlier this week Disney+ removed the original Fantastic Four movies, from 2005 and 2007, starring Chris Evans and Jessica alba, from the streaming platform. The final movie thats been officIally announced as part of Phase 4, is Fantastic Four. Marvel’s First Family will finally be joining The MCU and Jon Watts, director of all 3 MCU Spider-Man movies, will be directing FF. Preliminary work is already being done on the film and after No Way Home premieres, Watts will be diving straight into work on Fantastic Four. Per Marvel chose to remove the old fantastic four movies from Disney+ because they’ll be making some kind of cameo or debut in Spiderman far from home and the big guys at marvel don’t want audiences confusing the bold new direction they’ll be taking the characters with dog shit that has come before?

As if we didn’t already have enough Spider-Man news to discuss, Sony just dropped the trailer for Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse, the sequel their mega-hit Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. I absolutely love the first film. I think it’s genuinely one of the best superhero films that we’ve seen so far.

I’ve been a little bit nervous about this project because I strongly suspect the studio’s priority will be introducing more and more Spider-Men from different alternate realities, where I’d like to see them do something much more character driven. The new trailer does give me some encouragement, though, because even though there’s clearly a multi-verse element at play in the story it focuses on the two characters I most wanted to see, Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy a.k.a. Spider-Gwen a.k.a. Spider-Woman. I’m sure Sony wanted to get this trailer out to capitalize on the buzz and the anticipation for Spider-Man: No Way Home. Anyway, take a look at the teaser for yourself right here:

FIRST LOOK: Jurassic World: Dominion!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

As you can see at the bottom of the poster, this movies been delayed awhile.

 I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, that Jurassic Park is the most underutilized franchise in modern film history. That first film was groundbreaking in ways that, even today, most people don’t understand. Jurassic Park changed movies forever and became one of the most successful and beloved blockbuster films of all time. The legendary Stan Winston, king of practical effects, and his team created all of the animatronic dinosaurs in the movie. It was the incredible marriage of practice effects and CGI that made the dinosaurs feel so real. While Stan Winston, is an incredibly important part of the success of Jurassic Park. CGI visual effects had never been used to the degree that they were in Jurassic Park. Not even close, not by a mile. Nothing else compares. When Steven Spielberg was developing the movie they were still contemplating using stop motion animation to put the dinosaurs on screen, that’s how new CGI was at the time.  It was a CGI mock up, put together by a couple of the guys at Industrial Light & Magic, just showing the skeleton of a running dinosaurs, that convinced Spielberg CGI visual effects were the way to bring these dinosaurs to life. Spielberg was taking a huge gamble when he made this decision. Because if it didn’t work, it would’ve ruined the whole film. I cannot reiterate enough how new this technology was and how it had never even come close to being used on this scale before.  The closest comparison would probably be the T-1000 in Terminator 2. Morphing, liquid metal is almost laughably simple to compared it to an island theme park, filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs. This was the film that kicked off the CGI revolution in blockbuster filmmaking. Even by today’s standards, the special effects in Jurassic Park hold up 100%. The T-Rex attack is just as spectacular now, as it was when it was in movie theaters.

    Next year, we have another Jurassic Park film from director Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World: Dominion, hitting theatres Summer 2022. Trevorrow’s last entry in the franchise, Jurassic World, was by no means an excellent film, but it’s the only Jurassic Park sequel that actually works. I think with Jurassic World, this was the first time we’ve seen a functioning park in the way John Hammond imagined. It’s just different and creative enough to stand above the other sequels. I particularly enjoyed Chris Pratt and his relationships with the velociraptors. My favorite scene is when a careless worker falls into the Raptor enclosure, prompting Chris Pratt to run straight into the cage without any weapons, and stare down a pack of Velociraptors long enough get his worker to safety. It was so jarring because we had seen over the course of several films how incredibly dangerous and deadly these animals were and here’s this guy standing just a few feet in front of them, completely vulnerable. The scene added a new layer to these fantastic dinosaurs, without taking away their inherent edge and menace. It was a memorable scene involving some of cinema’s best, scariest creatures.

  Anyway, It looks like this new installment is finally giving audiences what they’ve been waiting for since the original film premiered. Those dinosaurs captured our imagination. The T-Rex, the Velociraptors, the stuff of cinematic nightmare. I think the question we’ve all been asking pretty much since we walked out of the theatre in 1993 is: What happens if they get off of the island? And that’s exactly what happens at the end of the last film (which was pretty terrible, the movie I mean), setting up what has the potential to be a great story.

Trevorrow didn’t return for the following film, Jurassic World: This Is So Bad I Can’t Even Remember The Name. With Trevorrow otherwise occupied another director was brought in for the last Jurassic World film, and while I don’t remember that particular filmmaker‘s name, he certainly was not up to the task. Luckily, Trevorrow is coming back for this new film and hopefully he can undo the damage done to the franchise.

On the set of Jurassic World: Dominion

Trevorrow was supposed to direct the final film in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Rise of Skywalker, but left the product project due to creative differences with Disney. JJ Abrams stepped in for Trevorrow and we ended up with fucking awful entries in 2 different beloved franchises as a result (Star Wars and Jurassic Park). If you’re a curious Star Wars fan, I recommend looking up Trevorrow’s plan for Rise of Skywalker, which are very easy to find online.  I think you’ll agree that what he had planned, would’ve been far better than absolute dog shit we got from JJ Abrams in Episode IX.

  Release delays related to the pandemic meant that a lot of film has been completed already, so last year Colin Trevorrow made a short film called Battle at Big Rock, that takes place sometime after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. It’s definitely worth a watch, Especially if you’re a big fan of this franchise. Without spoiling anything, I’ll just say it involves a glimpse of what’s to come, now that humans and dinosaurs are living alongside. Here it is:

   The cat is out of the bag. The worst fears of many have come true. We now live in a world where humanity and dinosaurs must adapt to living alongside one another for the first time in the history of other species. What is this due to the ecosystem? How often are people killed by predatory dinosaurs? How does this affect politics? Military? Economics? Academia? Science? I could go on and on. This is what I meant earlier when I said that this is been a incredibly underutilized franchise. You can see how so many different cool stories could be told when, once again, humanity foolishly plays God. Resulting in what’s sure to be a human/dinosaur shit show.

  I was also very pleased to hear is that this is going to be more of an ensemble piece. Combining the casts from the recent films and the classics. Meaning Chris Pratt, Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, and Laura Dern are all in this film, without one generation necessarily overshadowing the other.

As were heading towards the end of 2021, movie studios are already thinking about their largest projects in the coming year. So even though it’s still quite a few months away, Colin Trevorrow has released a six minute prologue to Jurassic World: Dominion and an accompanying commentary video featuring the director himself, discussing the footage, courtesy of IGN.com. It’s going to be cut from the film, but it’s still good material and it he wanted to put it out online for fans to enjoy. I’d have to agree with the director and say that I found it to be quite entertaining. You can watch the footage and Trevorrow’s breakdown below:

Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Commentary!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

“The Multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little” – Dr. Stephen Strange (This guy literally goes toe to toe with cosmic gods on the regular, so hearing fear in is voice when saying this line, tells us how completely fucked they are)

    I’ll be honest, some may be surprised to hear, that I’ve had some big reservations about Spider-Man: No Way Home. After all, I’m an MCU super-fan and Tom Holland is without a doubt my favorite live action Spider-Man. When I’ve expressed my trepidation about this new movie I’ve been met with some pretty strong responses. Like this recent exchange for example,  “What’s this guy’s fuckin’ problem?! Does this prick think he’s BETTER than Spider-Man?! You and little fucking website and your shitty podcast can GO FUCK YOURSELF!”.  To which I replied, “Jeez Mom, that a bit much, don’t you think?” 

    However, in my defense, I think I had a few good reasons to be concerned. Far From Home had such a spectacular cliffhanger ending. Not only was I beyond thrilled too see J.K. Simmons return as J. Jonah Jameson, in The MCU no less, but Mysterio framing Peter for his murder, streaming the doctored footage, and revealing that Spider-Man is Peter Parker, for all the worlds to see. That is one hell of a way to end a movie!

I loved that J. Jonah Jameson was the one to get the scoop. Their decision to make Ole’ J.J., a controversial, fringe, Alex Jones-esque, online news outlet that broke the story was only the icing on the cake. I was really curious to see how this story would play out. But then as proctions was ramping up, rumors and information about No Way Home begin to trickle in. Jaimie Foxx was returning as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then the great Alfred Molina would be appearing as Doc Ock from Spider-Man 2. They were playing the same versions of their characters that we had already seen in other Spider-Man franchises that didn’t take place in The MCU.

“Hello Peter”

The last piece of the puzzle fell into place for me when Benedict Cumberbatch signed on for a size-able role in movie as Doctor Strange. After No Way Home, the next MCU film is Doctor Strange and The Multiverse of Madness (You don’t have to be a genius to figure out the type of thing Doctor Strange will be dealing with that movie). As the months went on and more rumors about casting continue to swirl, it was sounding more and more to me like this was essentially going to be a live action version of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Don’t get me wrong, I love Into The Spider-Verse. It’s easily one of the best superhero movies ever made Live-Action, Animated, or otherwise. That’s just not what I wanted to see from a third MCU Spider-Man movie. I was very excited to see what, I imagined was, a more grounded Spider-Man film that dealt with the fallout of the last movie. At this point I should simply learn to trust Marvel and Kevin Feige because  this trailer laid my fears to rest. Not only is Peter’s identity becoming public a huge part of this upcoming film, it is the event that movies the entire story forward. It’s the catalyst for the whole movie.

 I was pleasantly surprised how excited I was after watching this teaser. Now that it’s finally available for our viewing pleasure, I was really blown away by it and I thought the best way to cover it, would be a Trailer Commentary. Below, you will see the 1st trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home, If you’d like, you can sync up with me and follow along, as I give my commentary and my insights on this new teaser for The MCU’s third Spider-Man movie. I have a lot of fun stuff to cover so I hope you join the ride! When rumors and bits of information about this movie were hitting the Internet, it was clear that this was going to be a film that dealt with the multiverse and some other big, sci-fi concepts. Which is all well and good, but I was afraid that they were taking this route, at the expense of the story set up at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home. I gotta admit my fears were laid to rest after watching this teaser. I mean…Wow.! What a trailer! This baby was certainly worth the wait! Watch it here:

There were so many things I loved in this. The return of J. Jonah Jameson! The pumpkin bomb! Goddamn it’s good to see Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock again. I can wait to see this Peter Parker fight those tentacles. They naturally lend themselves to interesting action sequences. I could be wrong, but it seeemed like Peter sees Doc Ock in the same place we see the pumpkin bomb and hear the unmistakable laugh of Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin. I was very critical of Dafoe’s Norman Osborn in the original film, so I’m surprised by how happy i was by the trailer’s suggestion of his return. 

The set up of the film is reminiscent of the much maligned “One More Day” story arc in which Aunt May is shot after Peter’s identity becomes public. He then makes a deal with the demon Mephisto to put Spider-Man’s secret identity back in the bottle in exchange for his marriage to MJ. It’s pretty fucking stupid, but I love what they’re attempting to do here. Of course, it’s always a pleasure to see Jon Faverau, the man who started it all, return as Happy Hogan.  Also, l’m calling it right now. This is going to be the biggest superhero blockbuster of all time. This is going to break box office records left and right. So pull up the trailer, sync it up with mine, and let’s dive into this Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Commentary!
