Well here it is the first full trailer to the final film in the Riddick trilogy. I loved the first film, it had a unique feel to it and was so simple it’s hard not enjoy the ride. Then the follow up Chronicles of Riddick which was so far in the opposite direction even I had trouble keeping track of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy elements at play. Now watching this trailer I obviously feel it taking more influence from the first film, stranded on a desert planet, bounty hunters, the nasty monsters come out at night, R RATING! Love it all and I think it will be at the very least fun. Also got some interesting casting going on which I will talk about later, but on that note where the hell Karl Urban? Honestly put him in the trailer! The action looks good, the monsters look scary and Riddick’s eyes are glowing so let’s get this review started! Comment and like at the end please.

I am finding it very hard to care about this film. The plot doesn’t really interest me, the characters don’t interest me and the trailer is very bland for a big budget science fiction film. The trailer did that stupid flashing in and out of shots which I hate! On the plot side of things I really don’t like the whole the world entirely relying on a child, instantly lost interest. The only part of this film that looks remotely interesting is the zero G fight training and that will be five minutes, so no thank you. Actually I want to know why Ben Kingsley has drawings on his face. Back to problems its director also directed X-Men Origins: Wolverine that’s a really bad start, oh and in my research I discovered the effects company behind this went into bankruptcy during post production. I struggle to see why people are interested in this film, so if anyone who read the book could explain this to me that would great.

This massive Wondercon trailer is one gigantic and beautiful scene after another. This film is really trying to beat the idea of giant scale into our minds and personally it’s working for me. I will be watching this film in IMAX, it will be the best film ever made and as God as my witness Del Toro will get an Oscar! On my previous review of Trailer #1 I confessed my ridiculous excitement for this film, and clearly this trailer doesn’t help, I might actually go crazy waiting for this! The thing you notice about the trailer is a lot more behind the scenes detail such as the command center and well just people in general, and we see Charlie day for the first time talking about understanding the enemy (he is a scientist). Then we go over a few scenes showing how the Jaegers work with mind melding and such. We also get an insight into how the war with the Kaiju has been going, but after that its 2,500 tonnes of awesome with lots and lots of battle scenes and Giant Robot action! 12th July save the date!

Second feature of the 5 bests is the best alien invasion films. Science fiction is my genre, alien films are a keen interest and alien invasion films are just damn cool! It’s a good mixture of these types of films. I have featured action heavy films to dramatic paranoia and all of which I would recommend to my readers. If anyone has any film they are adamant that I have over looked, please point that film out to me because I am not an expert even though I have watched a lot of these films. Please enjoy the list and comment at the end.

Starship Troopers is Paul Verhoeven at his most satirical, violent and bloody. As an action film it’s great and always entertaining with a story that keeps the adrenaline pumping. As a science fiction film it’s got a bit of everything, spaceships, aliens and visuals that not only stand up to the passage of time but could rival some modern blockbusters. But for me the best thing in this film is its satire, like many of Verhoeven films its highlight is satire as it is both funny and a fascinating insight into how different ideologies might look in the future. Whilst the acting wasn’t great I don’t care because the characters are great and dialogue is both quotable and so funny it can put tears into a grown man’s eyes. Kill’em kill’em all!

It’s nice to see Disney moving into the 21st century without losing its original charm. Like Toy Story before it the story opens up a new world which seem straight from a child’s imagination, what happens when you leave your toys, now it’s what happens when you leave your video games. The characters are great and really fun with a brilliant voice cast behind each of main attractions. The visuals are great and they blend the different game worlds really well without it seeming like they couldn’t exist in the same place. Whilst the sound was very good for the most part I would have liked more of a memorable soundtrack. I felt massively nostalgic watching this with all the old games and their characters, it’s something I really wanted and I got it. Now let’s close out with the bad guy affirmation.
Wreck-It Ralph: “I’m bad and that’s good. I’ll never be good, and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be than me.”

This was bad, if I had a worst case scenario going into watching this film, I’d have to say they got it pretty damn close. The story was non-existent and felt like I was watching multi-level on a game, though funnily enough not a Resident Evil game. Then the acting was even worse, never been remotely good in any of the films but it was particularly bad in this film. The visuals where actually pretty good in this film, however it must be noted that it’s all CGI and green screen. I am so happy I didn’t pay to see this in 3D. The best dialogue was from the deaf girl and the less said about the others the better. I will admit it is an action film but I will damned if it is a horror film! The first could have that genre title but every other are not horror films. This film is just terrible and everybody involved should be ashamed.

It’s a big budget zombie apocalypse film so regardless of how the trailer goes I am going to be in a cinema watching this. The trailer starts off pretty good with a nice little family in the car and all that then all hell breaks loose on the streets. However it uses every action trailer does now which is the Inception BWOOOOONNNGG, seriously stop using that noise on every trailer. Carrying on, the next few flashing shots show the global effects of the zombies and that this is very wide spread, well so I am with the film so far. Then about one minute and 19 seconds into the trailer you see the zombies and well it’s not good, when I say not good I actually mean awful. At some point in the production of this film one of production team said to the other “how much CGI should we use” and gets a reply “All of it, all of the CGI”. I just can’t believe the sprinting hoard of CGI zombies that somebody being paid too much said was okay got into this film.
