Guys, it is seriously a great time to be alive and be part of the “nerd community” (you know what I mean). Super hero movies are coming out left and right, we got an annual Star Wars thing going, there are TV series, we’re just being spoiled right now. This euphoric spirit stems from me being fresh out the movie theater, after watching Deadpool. Because not only is the quantity of “nerdy” entertainment impressive, with movies like Deadpool, the quality is also excellent.
The Rocky franchise is a series of timeless movies. The underdog story is just as relevant today as it was when the first film came out in 1976. I still re-watch the old movies from time to time and find them very entertaining. Can Creed breath new live into the franchise, or will it hit the canvas in the first round?
It is finally here! I don’t remember being this excited for any piece of pop culture in a very very long time. My expectations and level of hype for this movie were so incredibly high, that, while the release date inched closer, I started being afraid that the new Star Wars could do nothing else but disappoint. But as we all know; fear leads to the dark side and so, I found myself super excited heading into this film. To my delight, it did not disappoint one bit.
James Bond is another one of those franchises that you get introduced to by your father. And it’s somehow a very powerful notion that something that my father enjoyed 25 years ago, I enjoy today. Maybe this is why the James Bond character has any resonance with me at all. So what about Spectre, is this something that your father would watch?
Fuck you Mars!
What happens if a super smart guy gets left behind on Mars? Well, spoiler alert; he tries to survive. For a film being about a man left behind in space, it plays rather as a feel-good movie. Which is strange, considering the fact that while in space, you are in a hostile environment, which is constantly trying to kill you.
After watching the trailer for Southpaw, I was super amp’d to see this movie. Boxing; check, a father fighting for his child; check, Jake Gyllenhaal; check (not as big of a man crush as Tom Hardy, but close). But after seeing the movie, I’m just a little bit less excited about it. It’s still a great movie, just not as amazing as I envisioned it to be.
Whoa! Somebody did not get the memo that this was supposed to be a Hitman movie. Was it an entertaining action flick? Sure, it wasn’t terrible. Did it have anything to do with the source material? Nope! Not even a little bit.
Sigh…… What in the world happened? Everything started out so good and then halfway through the film everything goes to poop. Let’s see what went wrong.
Wow! This movie is awesome! Dare I say this; I think I might have enjoyed watching this more than I did Avangers 2? No, no, hear me out….
Arnie, you’re still the fucking bomb!
Let me start by saying that this film felt like a complete nerdgasm. To me it was a nostalgia rollercoaster from start to finish.
