Am Back! And you didn’t even know I left. Sorry for being away from the blog for a while and I may have also neglected some of the blogs I follow. Sorry about that. However I just realised I forgot to review Guardians of the Galaxy and as a result also haven’t read anyone’s reviews. However they are all bookmarked so when my review is out expect some comments.
So to this post, who won the box office this summer, the time of the blockbuster! Some upsets, some shockers and some we easily predicted. Read the rest of the post after the break and leave me a comment.
Plenty of my readers know that I love a good box office prediction, and so what’s better than to predict who will win the most tightly contested season the summer, well nothing really. 2014 has a very mixed summer filled with all kinds of films; this will mean very different numbers and makes predicting them quite difficult. Normally it’s easy to see how well a sequel will make but this summer we have 3 franchises alone that have been rebooted and in their own right having sequels. That being said below is my 10 favourites to win the summer box office, not which I think will be good or that I want to win just that they will bring in the green (or whatever colour money is in your respective countries). Think I am wrong or just want to join in? Then post your 10 favourites to win in the comments section below.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the most comic book a superhero film has ever been and for a superhero like Spider-Man that is really impressive. Special kudos to Mark Webb and Andrew Garfield for ripping this character straight off the page. Now don’t get me wrong I loved the film but not everyone will, if your first experience with spider man was the last film series and not the comics then parts will be jarring but spider-man fans will love the lighter, funnier and quipier spider-man than they have been given in the past. The story is more focused in the sequel as it tries to answer old questions and raises new ones going forward into the franchise. The visuals are great and even though I was a little scared at some of the CGI in the trailers believe me the final product is spectacular. Mark Webb has clearly become comfortable with his new spider-man world and I cannot wait to see what he does next. SINISTER SIX! I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

This post has nothing to do with the Super Bowl itself, only the amazing amount of new film trailers featured in the adverts for the sporting event. Each film had about 30-40 seconds to present their film because the cost of having a spot in the Super Bowl ads is so ridiculously high. Also Rugby is better. Let’s see how well they did and sound off in the comments section with your opinions.
This is my list of the most anticipated films released in the year 2014, wow this year, crept up quick. I have a skewed view towards the genres of Sci-fi and Action, so don’t expect indie or drama, I will watch them but at the moment I just don’t care. If you notice any films that you want to see more than anything then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply forgot it was coming out. If so I would love to know if I am missing any. Also there will be a box office prediction for each film; you guys know how much I like predictions. Upcoming reviews are all 2013 film, first Frozen then The Kings of Summer and You’re Next is ironically next.
Wow was not expecting that, at all. It’s looking very interesting and whilst I have no idea what the final product will deliver I am very interested in this film. Watched the trailer a few times now and my only thought is wow Sony is REALLY going for it! Insane amount of content in this film and there is a lot of stuff I like, and the usual worries I get. We see Rhino, Electro, Green Goblin or Hob Goblin? And easily my favourite scene showing the super tech for the sinister six. Sinister Six! And this is only the trailer for the second film. So yeah I like what I see so far and whether Sony’s strategy of going big or going home works out at least it’s a really big change in the normal formula of superhero films. Come on Webb show us something new. Spiderman, Spiderman does whatever a spider can. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.
