I’m Sorry To Say It But I’m Not Excited for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

Two years ago I couldn’t wait to see Wonder Woman. It was the first time a female superhero from DC Comics was being featured in a standalone film and after Gal Gadot stole the show in Batman vs. Superman I just knew it was going to be awesome. Wonder Woman was disappointing, to say the least, and its sequel doesn’t seem to be doing too well either. It was supposed to come out in June but was pushed until next June, which was a bit of a bummer.

Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor is coming back, which doesn’t make sense considering that he died.

And the movie is set in the 80s’ which means we’ll get cheesy 80s’ references, famous 80s’ songs, and who knows what other 80s’ nonsense that’ll distract from the movie just being a good Wonder Woman movie.

Honestly, I wish I could say I’m buzzing with excitement to see this film but honestly, I’m not. Yeah, I’m eager to see the teaser, whenever that’ll be. (Rumors are saying it’ll arrive in December alongside The Rise of Skywalker.) Yeah, I’m definitely going to go see it next year because why not? But I’m nowhere near as interested in the film as Black Widow, unfortunately.

Missed seeing the first official poster? Here it is. Continue reading I’m Sorry To Say It But I’m Not Excited for ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Biggest Flaw is Its Overbearing Goal to Be Complex/Dark

I’ve just participated in a marathon of The Dark Knight Trilogy spanning a week long and today I finally finished The Dark Knight Rises. It was fun but it was nowhere near as entertaining as either The Dark Knight (which is one of my favorite movies of all time) or even Batman Begins. Why? How could the finale of an incredible superhero trilogy fall just a little flat compared to its predecessors? Today, after watching this film for the fourth time in my life, I think I finally have a definitive answer.

The Dark Knight Rises is a great superhero movie which is apparent with its 8.4 out of 10 star rating on IMDb but what it lacks that The Dark Knight has in such abundance is an easy-to-follow, simplistic storyline.

The Dark Knight follows the growing madness of The Joker and his schemes which takes Batman on quite an emotional journey. There are stunning plot twists and fantastic character developments that leave the viewer riveted.

The Dark Knight Rises tries to build on The Dark Knight’s perfect storyline with an equally complex one and ends up becoming a movie that’s too morbid for its britches. We get it. Christopher Nolan wanted to end the trilogy with a bang but it’s swallowed up in an overly long film that takes its complexity too seriously, leaving one bored and slightly disinterested.

My Ten Favorite Female Villains

There have been many women in films but rarely do you see a compelling female villain. I have seen countless male antagonists who have stolen the show with their creepiness or their sheer awesomeness but being able to enjoy a female villain in a movie is so very hard to find. But today I’m going to list the female baddies whose wicked ways are shone in the most delightful (or horrifying) fashion and have grown to be some of my favorite characters. Enjoy!

10. Red Queen

Alice in Wonderland wasn’t the best Disney movie ever made but one thing I distinctly remembered about the film for years after seeing it in the movie theater nine years ago was the Red Queen. Her putrid behavior and her striking look were unforgettable, standing out amidst a mostly lackluster film that I pretty much erased from memory until I saw it for the second time a few months ago.

Helena Bonham Carter’s performance as the Red Queen wasn’t Oscar worthy but I’ll never forget her incessant screaming for her beloved Jabberwocky anytime soon. Continue reading My Ten Favorite Female Villains

What’s Your Favorite Christopher Nolan Movie?

As you may know, Christopher Nolan is an incredible filmmaker who doesn’t just make movies that perform well at the box-office. Instead, he makes movies that intend to leave you stunned and truly appreciative of the outstanding work he has just displayed on the big screen. I didn’t know much about Christopher Nolan until I saw Interstellar. After that, I became obsessed with his work. I have watched most of his films and have loved every single one of them. Christopher Nolan still hasn’t won an Oscar but he has been nominated five times for one. And honestly, nearly all the movies he has made deserves an Oscar nod.

For this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought it would be perfect to make this amazing director the topic for today. Here’s the list of his best movies. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Christopher Nolan Movie?

Throwback Friday: A Bunch of New Movie Trailers Have Arrived at San Diego Comic-Con

It’s San Diego Comic-Con week and the trailers for the future’s biggest hits are dropping left and right. Because this is Throwback Friday day, I thought it would be so much fun to look back on what exciting movie trailers dropped last year. Enjoy!

As you may know, SDCC has arrived and debuted movie and television news for the past weekend. This is always the most exciting time of the year for me because there is so much news that arrives surrounding films that I’m eager to hear about. Well, yesterday Warner Bros. debuted a bunch of trailers to get us excited for their movies arriving either later this year or early next year and I’m here to share them with you all. Enjoy!

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

If you were at all bummed out by that eensy-weensy sneak peek of Godzilla: King of the Monsters that was revealed the other day well this official trailer was released yesterday and I have to say, it definitely looks decent. I watched Godzilla four years ago thinking it was going to be positively awesome and it was very disappointing indeed. I mean, it was absolutely horrendous, which was a bummer because I’ve always wanted to see a really good, modern Godzilla movie.

Well, this film definitely looks like it’ll be better than that movie as it clearly shows more monsters and plenty of jaw-dropping destruction that’ll look amazing in IMAX. I’m pretty sure the story will be sub par but the action will probably be worth the admission fee and that’s enough to make me want to see this movie.
