We’re Getting a New ‘Star Trek’ Movie!

Yep, it’s happening. Paramount is making a new Star Trek movie which is set to come out in 2023. I can’t believe I’m kind of excited but after watching the Abrams trilogy, which I enjoyed more than the Sequel Trilogy (sorry Star Wars), I have to admit. I’m kind of pumped.

Who will the movie star? No idea, but I hope it’s good.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘Star Trek’: What a Ride!

The other day I revisited Star Trek: Into Darkness for the first time in seven years and to my great surprise I enjoyed the heck out of it. There was so much I had forgotten and it’s safe to say, I was riveted. After finishing that film my sister and I were so intrigued with the Star Trek sequel that we wanted to see the first one…so we did…yesterday.

Wow, wow, wow!!!! I have to admit, I’m not a Star Trek enthusiast and yet even this movie had me losing my mind and crying way more often that I expected.

J.J Abrams is the king of starting great stories and Star Trek is no exception. The amount of heart he manages to throw into this action-packed film is nothing short of spectacular. The relationship between Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto’s Spock was so perfectly fleshed out and deliciously contentious. There was so much drama, so many stakes, and a jaw-dropping surprise that had me freaking out like when I watched The Force Awakens.

Star Trek is like a rollercoaster that doesn’t stop once it tips over that hill. It just loops and loops and throws you around with that singular slight pause in the middle that makes you think the ride is over before throwing you into another dip that leads you screaming and holding on for dear life until the ride eventually comes to an end. I just couldn’t get enough of it.

I’ve heard of Star Trek for years and now that I’ve watched it I understand why. It’s pretty fantastic.

I’ll give it 97 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. I would’ve given it a perfect score but its unnecessary partial sex scene that I skipped in the first thirty minutes of the movie was not needed at all. We get the idea that he’s a lady’s man, we didn’t need to see it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

‘A Quiet Place: Part II’ Is Following the Playbook of ‘ALIENS’

ALIEN is one of the greatest movies of all time and easily, in my opinion, the greatest sci-fi/horror film ever made. A Quiet Place is the second best movie I’ve watched that melds horror with science-fiction and it seems that its sequel is taking ques from ALIENS.

James Cameron took the storyline conceived in ALIEN to the next level, delivering a thrilling action-packed experience that added to the greatness of the first film in abundance.

It seems that A Quiet Place: Part II is taking the same initiative by delivering an action-packed sequel with more characters, more suspense, more horror, and a whole lot more people running everywhere. That’s a smart approach considering that ALIENS is considered, according to IMDb, the 74th best movie of all time. Continue reading ‘A Quiet Place: Part II’ Is Following the Playbook of ‘ALIENS’

Movie Review Flashback: ‘A Quiet Place’ Is The Best Sci-Fi Movie I’ve Seen In Years

When I saw the trailer for A Quiet Place while watching Justice League I immediately knew I wanted to see this movie. I’m not a fan of scary movies in the slightest. I refuse to watch The Exorcist and I’ve just recently gotten the guts to watch The Shining all the way through. Scary movies are my allergy but this film felt like something I had to see. I’ve never seen a movie where the premise is that you have to stay completely silent to avoid being found by a mysterious something or else you will perish. I knew this film was going to be scary but the premise sounded too original and cool not to watch. I ended up missing the opportunity to see it in the movie theaters but I finally got to see it on digital at home and it was surprisingly better than I expected.

A Quiet Place is about a family who, in a post-apocalyptic world where any sound can get them killed, is just trying to survive. The movie starts a little slow but soon establishes the seriousness of the situation the family is going through in a legitimately horrifying fashion. The story then showcases the family living a somewhat ordinary life despite their obvious noise-making hindrance but when life hits with a bang (literally) things go awry real fast.

What impressed me the most about this film is its realistic situations. This movie could’ve easily turned south real fast by having the family participate in wild escapades that would’ve turned the film into a typical PG-13 action film where the protagonists are supposedly invincible (like Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.) The writers for A Quiet Place, however, kept the suspense up and never let the movie get corny in any way. Let me give you an example. SPOILERS AHEAD!

My Review of ‘Rango’

Rango, it’s a movie I had completely forgotten existed until yesterday. Back when it came out in 2011 I vaguely remember seeing it. I was thirteen at the time. At that age, the story didn’t grasp me and I ended up forgetting 98% of the movie. I could only distinctly remember that the film was a bit strange.

Eight years later, I’m twenty-one, I just watched the film for only the second time in my life, and now I can say I finally understand it. Yes, it is strange but its uniqueness is what makes it stand out among all of the animated films that I’ve seen.

Rango may be rated PG and designed for children but honestly, I don’t feel like it’s a children’s movie. Continue reading My Review of ‘Rango’

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Gets Its First Trailer

There have been many Terminator movies (only two good ones; the first two) and every few years we get another attempt at recreating the same magic The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day seemed to find so effortlessly.

Well, this November, producer James Cameron is taking a crack at the Terminator franchise with yet another installment; Terminator: Dark Fate. Here’s the first trailer.

I have to admit, I kind of really liked this trailer. With every film comes a new, smarter Terminator but the twist this time, the good Terminator is a woman. How awesome is that?

This film’s storyline may not be that great but one thing I am confident about; it’s going to have some good action scenes for sure. And seeing Linda Hamilton returning to kick butt in this trailer is garnering two thumbs up from me.

I can’t wait to see more.

What do you think about the trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
