Movie News Report: He Lived Long and Prospered

Encase anyone was wondering I am still doing reviews but haven’t seen any new films recently and the new trailers have been poo. I will be watching and reviewing Chappie next week.

This is an end of the week wrap up of what has happened in the geeky world of movies. I took better notes this time so I have a more complete list of things that have happened. Sadly nothing of much note has happened in the world of movies. So this post is a bit more random. And of course the devastating news that Leonard Nimoy has passed away.

Also I’ll include some movie features I liked from the blogosphere. I follow a lot of nerds!

Movie News Report: Aquaman’s new look and Spider-Man Returns Home

I am trying something new. This one will be a rough draft, need criticism. Do tell me if it is crap or makes no sense.

This will be an end of the week wrap up of what has happened in the geeky world of movies. Decided to do this about an hour before I wrote it so am just going off memory. Fill in the gaps in the comments, I know I missed something.

Also I’ll include some movie features I liked from the blogosphere. I follow a lot of nerds!

300: Rise of an Empire (2014) Review

Most people who know me and have read my reviews would guess I liked 300 quite a bit and you would be right, so obviously I was going to see Rise of an Empire. Sadly and not unexpectedly this was a weaker contender than its star studded predecessor but it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. The acting was passable if only dragged along by its two leads, seriously cannot remember anyone past Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green who were both pretty good. The story and general script was pretty bad and somehow seemed smaller in scale than 300, which seems impossible considering how much more happened in this film. The battles and action was pretty great and as where the visuals short of some effects I would not have used in this film. The visuals where strong and the music wasn’t bad either. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Ben Affleck as Batman: My Totally Unbiased Opinion

I know a lot of you would like to hear my crazy ranting anger over this news and believe me it’s there. But first I’d like to look at both sides of the coin…and then go ballistic at the end. First we’ll see Affleck’s accomplishes and why he may be good in the role, I’ll include arguments from around the web and plenty of MEME’S. Then lastly I will discuss the problems I see and other angry nerds have voiced around the world. This should be…fun.

If you like the post then I may do more casting reactions or something similar again. Please enjoy and I look forward to some interesting comments.

300: Rise of an Empire (Trailer #1) Review

300 might not have been everyone’s cup of tea but as a blood thirty male I found great joy in watching the sword and sandal mayhem. I had my doubts about the plot of this one and how they could make a sequel but after some research I actually really like the idea behind this film. Now onto the trailer and boom! We get battles, 6 packs, horse riding, boat crashing and oceans of Greek/Persian blood. The boats interest me because very rarely do you ever see ancient naval warfare and Athenians where famous for their navy, just hope somebody says Ramming Speed! And gets those drums going. In conclusion trailer good, Tim want more and yet now I must wait until 2014, such horrible thing to do teasing me with a trailer! Hope you enjoy the trailer and stills I managed to grab. Comment and like at the end please.

Box Office Predictions (14-16th June) Results

Second week of predictions and the results are a little more in my ballpark. I even had more readers comment on the prediction and a few made their own, but who was closer? Well if you continue to the rest of this post you’ll find out. I know everyone is fixed on knowing the big releases scores this weekend but we can’t forget about the returning films of which one showed some shocking results. I also want to thank everyone for the likes and comments on my review of Man of Steel, of which beat my previous comment record with over 90 comments.

Man of Steel (2013) Review

Man of Steel has a Zack Snyder look and feel with a Goyer/Nolan story, and if that is something that appeals to you then Man of Steel is your film. Somehow the team behind this film have made superman both more down to earth than any superman film before whilst also making him far more powerful and raw as a superhero. The visuals are just unbelievable and I’ll devote a paragraph to discussing that, the acting is good and General Zod is just wow. I have heard complaints that the film couldn’t decide between a science fiction film and a superhero film but to be honest that’s idiotic, the two blend perfectly and they did it in such a realistic way I am surprised it hasn’t been done before. 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.

“My name is General Zod. I have journeyed across an ocean of stars to reach you. Your world has sheltered one of my citizens. He will look like you, but he is not one of you. To those of you who know his location, the fate of your planet rests in your hands. To Kal-El, I say this: Surrender within 24 hours, or watch this world suffer the consequences.”

Box Office Predictions (14-16th June)

Second week of predictions isn’t going to be any easier with two wide releases which to say the least are wild cards. To be honest I like them that way because it’s more fun with making the predictions. I don’t see any returning films making a challenge to the new comers but you never know. One way or another this weekend should be fun to watch both in the cinema and on the figures. MAN OF STEEL!!! Go Watch it now!

Man of Steel (Trailer #4) Review

This final trailer gives the doubters nowhere to run. How anyone doesn’t want to watch this film now is just beyond me and this glorious trailer gives me goosebumps. It is AMAZING!!! I will be watching this film in IMAX, it will be great and it will blow my mind! On my previous review of trailer #3 I confessed my ridiculous excitement for this film, and clearly this trailer doesn’t help, I am losing it right now! The trailer started a little freaky like a found footage horror but then Zod’s voice commands your attention and you will listen! We also get what I am assuming is Zod’s theme music which I like, villains need themes and this one is badass! Oh yeah and everything else! Fighting, heat vision, Faora, then more FIGHTING!!! 14th June save the date!

Man of Steel (Trailer #3) Review

First thoughts after watching this trailer was that the 14th June is far too long a wait. Anyway this trailer didn’t waste any time, opening with a battle on Krypton, which couldn’t have looked cooler unless I saw it on an IMAX screen. On my previous review of trailer #2 I totally called Hans Zimmer’s score to be used on the 3rd trailer and it was and it’s brilliant! It’s got Zimmer’s usual sound but a bit more upbeat to match with what the films theme of superman seems to be. The scene as he takes off just gives me goose bumps. Notice how I haven’t talked much about the EPIC stuff going on in this trailer? That’s because I’ll be talking about them all in the top scenes section, which may have a few blurry images due to breakneck speed of the action. Now the wait begins to see the Man of Steel kick all kinds of ass. Oh God it looks so good! I expect comments of praise from all of you.
