(trailer review) - The Matrix: Resurrections

(Official Teaser) ( Teaser Trailer ) WOW, just wow!!! I've watched this trailer several times and I'm just in awe of it, really.  The teaser trailer gave me all these thoughts about the Matrix Trilogy and what the film has done for cinema.  Watching this trailer, whilst it seems nothing have been revolutionised since because, well...The Matrix WAS the trendsetter for bullet-time from which they have incorporated it in other movies and even a top game called Max Payne among just a few, at this point, I don't care about the technology, but the story more so. Whilst a lot of people have not seen the original Matrix or the trilogy for that matter, this movie may bring people BACK to the trilogy and maybe back to the cinema to watch it this Christmas. This trailer, visually is simply incredible. From the very beginning of it where the town just doesn't look real as it is too pristine, to the special effects of a police officer changing into an Agent. Updated, smoother and cr

(film review) - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

What did I need from an MCU Disney Martial Arts movie? Well Martial Arts first and foremost.  I definitely wanted the sound of flapping clothes in the wind when someone is jumping in the air and I also wanted a great story, but something just as good/great as Black Panther (in the MCU), but for the Asian audience because, quality representation matters.  If the film looked just as stunning and as beautiful as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon or Hero, I'd say, Disney has done a great job with this film.  So, I guess the question then becomes, has Disney done a great job with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings? Yes, Yes they have. Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) was raised to be a warrior by his father "The Mandarin" who is known to be a dangerous and powerful warlord and the leader of the Ten Rings organisation.  However, these Ten Rings are a physical instrument and weapons Shang-Chi will eventually inherit when they are eventually passed down.  Whilst trying to stay away from

(trailer review) - The Matrix: Resurrections

(Teaser Trailer) So ummm, there has been a little talk recently in regards to The Matrix and John Wick coming out on the same day, both starring Keanu Reeves. Whilst I think by now, one of these movies has moved to another date, you can't help but think about what they are going to do with this series going forward after The Matrix: Revolutions back in 2003. Whilst some people were merely born, just born or a glimmer of hope in a parent's eye back in 1999, The Matrix revolutionised film and whilst the sequels didn't get as much attention as the first in regards to where they were going with the story and as the movies went on, the quality got worse (I kinda liked them personally, but the two sequels were different from the first), it is definitely a wonder with Resurrections, what will happen with the story now? What will be different from before? Since we know the story if you have seen the original trilogy, is this essentially a soft reboot/sequel using the same actors? I

(trailer review) - James Bond: No Time To Die

  (Final International Trailer) ( Final US Trailer ) ( Trailer 2 ) ( Big Game Spot Trailer ) ( Original Trailer ) Here's something funny and a little secret, I will share with you guys.  Sometimes I backdate my reviews.  Trailer reviews or movie reviews, any review I hadn't got the time to write.  Usually this is because I see a trailer and can't actually review there and then, so I come back to it later or a film I had to think about before reviewing or even watch again so I can collect my thoughts.  I will always publish the date as to when I first saw the film or trailer, but I'm just letting you know, how THIS review came about. So a few days ago, I saw the Bond trailer but I was unable to review it at the time because I was out and about.  Today, 2nd September 2021, I decided to write my review, but I would obviously backdate it.  Having briefly seen the trailer, I decided to look for the trailer to watch again before reviewing.  As I scroll through YouTube, I stum

(trailer review) - Red Notice

  Sometimes we forget that Netflix like to drop a few gems from time-to-time to let us know they are in the business of making great movies.  This is not to say all their movies are great, even with the talent they have, but this trailer, with two of the most talked about stars in Hollywood right now, in the same movie and both practically playing themselves or a character they have played thousands of times already, with quippy one-liners and action and explosion, we can not really go wrong, can we?  Insert Gal to be a sassy one and essentially the main antagonist, I can assure you, this is a ilm I really want to see. Whilst the story doesn't seem to be brand new, police officer teams up with criminal to catch even worse criminal, it looks like we will have a barrel of laughs with this one.  there were a few lines that made me laugh and the line that got me was..."we both know, that this thing is going to end, with you in Handcuffs"..."Promises promises"...LOL!
