(trailer review) - Dreamland

Watching this trailer reminded me of Queen & Slim in a way.  And although, very different in many ways, I couldn't help but think of two people on the run like Themla and Louise and think of that great movie.  It seems it will have some real dramatic and heartfelt moments with a story or narrative in which most of us can relate to.  However, I just couldn't relate to this time era where with Queen and Slim I could. That is not to say that I wouldn't watch this movie because I couldn't relate to the time era as Margot Robbie is a tremendous actor.  I felt immediately when watching this trailer, the Harley Quinn mischief and mayhem of the character (or more mayhem) and how this seems to be a hardened, yet vulnerable character who has done things to stay alive because of a troubled past.  I could be wrong but that is ultimately what I got from this official trailer and it would be interesting what another trailer might detail as I missed the initial one last month.

(trailer review) - One Night In Miami

It's wild to even think that this could have been a thing or even was a thing.  And the lack of promotion boggles me.  When this trailer dropped, I knew absolutely nothing about it, not a peep.  So to learn that Regina King has made this her directorial debut, I was obviously shocked. 4 friends, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke, Jim Brown and Muhammed Ali come together to spend time with one another at the height of their notoriety, on one night and inspired by true events.  It would be interesting what this story will say and how it will unfold. Directed by Regina King and Starring Kingsley Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge, Leslie Odom Jr.

(trailer review) - Wonder Woman 1984

(Official Main Trailer) (Official Main Trailer) (Official Trailer) I'm guessing this is the FINAL trailer as the link only says "Official Main Trailer" (again) but having looked at the above two links, the Official Main Trailer above for the Warner Bros. UK & Ireland YouTube page is pretty much the exact same trailer! I'm not sure if this is an error on their behalf, or maybe it is because I have access to UK & Ireland YouTube page, but this is or at least seems like the same exact trailer from August where at the end, Wonder Woman grabs Cheetah by the scruff of the neck.  With talks of possibly now dropping this movie on HBO Max and countries where cinema's are still open, in the UK, our cinema's are closed and we do not have access to HBO Max, so it's interesting how this would now pan out! Directed  by Patty Jenkins and starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright

(trailer review) - Chaos Walking

Can you find me an actor who isn't already working with Disney in this trailer? Actually, David Oyelowo? Soon to be in the Disney Machine!? I make jokes, but this is a very decent cast for something that seems to be confusing to me.  All women are barred, so they are killed/dead and Daisy comes along and messes up the set up when she "crash lands?".  Also, all the men's thoughts are out aloud for everyone to hear AND somehow, having a woman around gives men or specifically, Tom, "power?"...WILD! I think I would need to see another trailer to get a better look and feel of the storyline and if I'm definitely interested in the film.  Having a planet full of men is wild for population and reporduction, but to kill women because of some sort of power?  I'm definitely intrigued.  It definitely doesn't do anything for female empowerment and comes across as sexist, no? "Yay, let's kill all the women!" What??? ...lol  Spider-Man, Rey and Kae

(trailer review) - Zack Snyder's Justice League: Director’s Cut

I'm going to try and not repeat what I said in August 2020 regarding this debacle.  You can read that here:  Zack Snyder's Justice League Trailer .  But it is very much worth highlighting here or briefly mentioning that, this was an utter shambles when Warner Bros decided to try and switch gears to catch up with Marvel's success.  With no real plan or direction, you end up with the Josh Whedon directed movie which is both Zack's movie with Josh's touches and edits.  Apparently, Zack has never watched the Justice League because it isn't his movie and more power to him.  I liked it for the most part, it wasn't terrible. A trailer dropped in August and was pulled a little while after due to copyright infringement on the music choice used.  Apparently it wasn't cleared.  I'm just hoping that such a simple thing, isn't another spanner or something that is going to plague Zack's vision and stop us (I say that loosely) watching it on HBO Max.  We d

(trailer review) - IP Man: Kung Fu Master

When I first saw the name of this trailer, my initial response was, "another IP Man???" I possibly sighed in my head and then I decided to watch the trailer.  I'm definitely NOT interested in another IP Man movie.  I''m sure it went up to IP Man 4.  But from when Mike Tyson was in one of them, I lost all interest. 1 and 2 were good, but I didn't get a chance to see 3. So I'm watching the trailer and I'm looking for Donnie Yen and I cannot see him.  I kept wondering as to why they were focusing on the new donnie (london slang for geezer) and I kept thinking, maybe he would show up later.  He didn't.  Then the trailer said something about "A New Vision of Bruce Lee's Legendary Mentor", is when the pin dropped.  They must be making bank to have another IP Man movie. Although, I'm not interested.  Although this new donnie replacing the old Donnie Yen and for the fact it has a bunch of people in suits with Hatchet Axes (taking a leaf o

(trailer review) - X-Men: The Animated Series (1990's)

This is a slightly strange review because this is NOT a new show, however, it IS a new trailer!  Disney are labelling it the Unofficial Official Trailer.  Having grown up on various animated cartoons such as The Animaniacs, Reboot, He-Man, Galaxy High and even Gummy Bears, shows like Spider-Man and X-Men were at the very top of my to-watch list because it was comics and it was very cool.  I loved Reboot because that was computers and gaming, but Spider-Man and X-Men were a different beast altogether. Loved them!  I watched a lot of both series but slowly fell off the Spider-Man one when the X-Men and Ironman started to get invoved for reasons unknown.  With that said, I never watched any other Marvel related cartoons. The trailer for the X-Men though is sooo damn Iconic, it is definitely a little strange to learn of and hear a totally different trailer that doesn't sing out like it's predecessor.  they've used different visuals and I can't put my finger on it, but at th

(trailer review) - Superintelligence

I can't say I've seen much Melissa McCathy's movies at all but I can say I saw The Hangover III, Ghostbusters and Spy.  I didn't see Spy in the cinema, hence no review here, but I've got to say, I loved it.  Her and Jason Statham together was great.  If i remember correctly, he was a little over-the-top, but it worked well for his character.  This, looks like it could be in the same vain.  I cannot say I laughed out loud from this trailer at all, but i loved the beanbag chair moment.  It felt authentic, it felt real and how many times have you tired to do something like that and it takes you a few tries before you can successfully achieve what you set out to do. Seeing Brian Tyree Henry is always a good shout.  Considering I've only ever known him as Paper Boi from the Atlanta show and a few other shows and movies, but his facial reactions and comedic timing is also great so it would be nice to see him bounce off of Melissa.  I don't know who Sam Richardson

(film review) [STREAMING] - Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

I almost died when I watched the first Borat movie.  I'm aware that this is an expression and even though I am using it in such context, I was legit trying to catch my breath.  There was a scene where Borat has a fight with his friend and they are naked in a Hotel.  Chaos ensues and I found it absolutely hilarious that I was crying and trying to breath and struggling.  When I approached watching this sequel, I feel that, maybe I rushed it.  I had a plan to set up with my Nachos and dip the second day it came out and I ended up being too tired to watch.  I tried again in the week but again, too tired to watch.  So eventually, I decided to watch it and although I know how funny the character Borat is, I feel I should not have rushed watching this, set aside 5 hours over a day or 2 and watched the first movie again just to prep myself for the sequel.  Maybe, just maybe, I'll edit this a little later having watched the first one again then the second, but although this movie was go
