(film review) [STREAMING] - Soul

While the world has been in turmoil, Disney's Pixar decided to release this movie on Disney Plus, free of charge.  Unlike Mulan, where they were testing the waters and people had to pay extra on top of their Disney Plus package, Soul is completely free with the monthly subscription.  As for Soul though, when I first heard about it, I thought it was a nice idea.  A black animated cartoon for the kids as we don't get much of those and Pixar are pretty decent when it comes to storytelling and the inside adult jokes.  Needless to say, I do have fun with their movies.  Soul...Well, let me let you know how I felt about Soul... So, Joe is an aspiring Jazz Musician.  He is currently working in a school as a teacher but he is only a substitute.  Having made it into his midlife, Joe has not found a career or a job with great benefits as he has spent his life chasing his dream.  Joe enjoys live gigs and the feeling it brings him, however, one day Joe takes on a gig which could change his

(trailer review) - Coming 2 America

When I first heard about this movie, I thought to myself "really? after all these years?" and then I shrugged it off.  When word started to pick up more and more about it and that it was definitely on, I instantly wondered how would they create a sequel to such a classic and unforgettable film.  I head about the Beverley Hills Cop 4 and some others, but Coming To America is a Classic!  A film that has great quotes back to back to back to back.  A film that was serious but funny.  A love story with heritage and family roots.  From gags with the Soul Glow product.  Scene's with Randy Watson aka Sexual Chocolate.  The Barbershop and even the club scene with the weird women. Upon seeing this trailer though, I will definitely let you know off the bat, I smiled and I laughed.  The film actually looks soo soo good that I'm happy to watch it as soon as it comes out, BUT my only reservation is, I felt they gave us way too much of the same schtick as the previous movie and I fe

(series review) [STREAMING] - The Mandalorian

As I've stated in previous posts, I started reviewing series and streaming shows in October 2019.  Disney Plus launched in November 2019 WITH Star Wars: The Mandalorian their catalog of movies over decades.  I had to sit, stew and wait until March 2020 because I was born in the UK and that was when Europe was getting access to Disney Plus.  Although there are times I do sneakily watch shows that aren't shown on UK screens, I do not review them because it wouldn't be fair to the reader if they do not have access to the content.  It would be different if they are in another country and it isn't available, but to be within the same country, as an example, would be upsetting.  With that said, this is the first time I will be reviewing The Manadalorian both Season 1 and Season 2 trying my very best not to spoil anything. The Mandalorian Season 1 brings us a man in a Mandalorian suit of armour similar to Boba Fett from the Original Trilogy, son of Jango Fett from the Prequel

(short film review) - Canvas

Around October of last year (2019), before the impending doom that was the Corona Virus hit the world, I decided to review new or current running streaming/TV shows as they come out.  Ones I'd obviously watch and enjoy or at least take an interest in.  Some shows came to a finalé and others were in their second/third season.  While this had to be some great foresight I never knew I had because ALL I'D BE WATCHING IN THE NEW YEAR IS STREAMING MOVIES AND SHOWS...lol. So I guess it worked out to my benefit.  Something to give an opinion on as Cinemas are closed.  But to review a short film, a film that is barely even 10 minutes is a bit of a stretch but I guess, why not.  The short film had something to say and so do I! Canvas centres around an elderly man who is a still-life painter.  It would seem he has painted his whole life or at least, it is something that he loves doing, enough that his granddaughter comes to visit and also displays talents in drawing.  However, this elderl

(trailer review) - Nobody

When I saw Bob's face on the thumbnail of this trailer, I thought to myself "oh, that's the guy from 'Better Call Saul' and 'Breaking Bad!'" (two great shows by the way) and then my immediate thought was, "oh, is he in a film?".  You see, it's one thing having someone acting in TV series, but to see them in film, you do often think if the film would be any good because acting in film and acting in a TV series are two completely different things.  For the most part, most or quire a few TV shows are character driven so you need a great director who will be able to pull out an actors talents and what they are known for or what they excel at in TV, so I instantly thought that maybe this trailer could be interesting.  Ultimately, it could be rubbish. Upon watching this trailer, like most films of this ilk, it starts off a little slow giving you a little of the character's current life situation.  Then we are hit with the switch and what ch

(trailer review) - Outside the Wire

  Outside the wire sounds like a bit of a quote made in the film. "You know, he will never be detected, because he is Outside the Wire!", whatever that means, but the movie, it looks decent. Mr Anthony "One Take" Mackie is moving away from his Marvel character The Falcon for other sci-fi projects.  Altered Carbon Season 2 and this.  I don't recognise this new face, but I recognise Euron Greyjoy from recently watching "Overlord" on Netflix which was amazing and that was a "sleeper".  Although this practically looks like it's straight to DVD, it would be interesting if this turned out to be a decent movie, enjoyable and entertaining, almost like Code 8. Directed by Mikael Håfström and starring Anthony Mackie, Damson Idris, Emily Beechum, Michael Kelly, Pilou Asbæk

(trailer review) - Loki

I'll put it to you plainly.  This looks boring.  I mean a show with JUST Loki and no interaction with Thor? I'm not sure if I buy it.  It's their dynamic that works, but with that said, Loki may just work around other great supporting cast as long as this guy is causing mayhem or at least trying to bring world domination. From the trailer, I got a 'New Mutants' vibe with Loki trying to escape the TVA, but as I know nothing about them, I'm hoping a proper trailer gives us that bit more to be invested.  I like the explosions and fights scenes, but I'm just hoping this series wasn't just done as some any odd show to slide into the MCU, do nothing and then collect dust.  It's lacking that umph. Directed by Kate Herron and starring Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson

(trailer review) - WandaVision

This trailer is a lot more detailed and better than the last one and that isn't to say the ones that came before were garbage, but you get a bit more of a story beat with this trailer and ultimately, what is happening and the craziness of it all. I've heard that this show will go through the ages of Black and White TV and the many different styles these shows had over the years, but the closer we get to modern day, the hijinks ensues whilst all the while getting more weird and weird messing with Wanda's psyche.  I love this and I hope the tone changes too.  Such a clever concept.  It looks great. Directed by Matt Shakman and starring Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Teyonah Parris, Kat Dennings, Randall Park & Kathryn Hahn.

(trailer review) - The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

It has been a long time coming.  Initially this was meant to drop in August 2020, right? Or was it pushed back to then because of the coronavirus?  Whichever it ended up being, shooting was stopped and resumed several months later and now we have this first look trailer. I know what we got before, but this looks sooo much better.  That bit at the very end felt forced but this looks soo soo soo good. Continuing where Captain America left off and the complications of what that may bring for both Bucky and Falcon.  What is this? Buddy Cop espionage thriller?  As long as it gives me those Captain America: The Winter Soldier vibes... it's a win from me! Directed by Kari Skogland and starring ,Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Daniel Brühl, Emily VanCamp, Wyatt Russell

(trailer review) - The Mauritanian

I initially saw a post or something with Benedict's face on it as the thumbnail to this trailer and I was meant to watch it and review it.  It is highly likely I got distracted and boom, a few days later I see it again and here I am. The very small yet, somewhat flimsy point I'm making here is that, people are busy with life and things going on in it especially when the year 2020 is concerned.  At the same time, people can be distracted or lead astray.  People can also be manipulated and given incorrect information presented as facts.  When we are busy or distracted, sometimes we take ourselves down the wrong path by aimlessly following others or not knowing the real information to make our own decisions.  With cover-ups and misinformation and facts and fiction, we live in a world where nothing seems to be even real any more (or was it ever even real?) and a lot of what we actually see in film, although most of the time fictional, can present the realest of factual content.  It

(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. Dir

(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

(film review) [STREAMING] - The Trial of the Chicago 7

  I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I started watching this.  I had no idea about the cast, I had no idea about the story, I had no idea what it was all about and I just felt initially it was some Central Park Five "rip-off" of sorts and having not known this movie was based on a real thing that had occurred in real life, I was pleasantly taken aback once I got into the movie.  You see, I'm not an American and in school, they were quick to teach us about slavary, Christopher Columbus, Henry and his many women and a few plagues and the great fire of London, but not real life events such as the Tulsa Race Massacre, the Central Park 5 or The Trial of the Chicago 7.  In 2020, even more truths are being unearthed in media like films and TV series such as Lovecraft Country, so I do find it despicable that there are generations and generations of people, not only black, who do not know what has happened in history, because these events have been for the most part, u

(trailer review) - Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

It was only the other day I found out about this movie.  Correction and let me rephrase, I heard about this movie possibly late last year or early this year, but it was only the other day I was reminded about this movie.  Technically I knew nothing about it other than Chadwick Boseman being in it as the last film he would do, but I had forgotten about that and when his death came, my thoughts were over-shadowed by my feelings of how we lost such a great man, what would happen to one of his most iconic characters, Black Panther and where do we go from here? So even if I did look to see what his last film may have been at that time, as I knew it wasn't Da 5 Bloods, I was caught up in his death for a few weeks so being reminded about this movie was a delight but also very bitter sweet. Having now seen the trailer and having watched every episode of 'How to get away with murder', I have noticed the greatness in acting calibre that is Viola Davis, so from the jump, I knew this w

(trailer review) - Animaniacs

I immediately thought about writing a review as soon as I saw this trailer.  I'm not sure if it is because it's the Animaniacs and I used to like the show when I was younger or what, so, I didn't even think about if it would fall within what I have been doing for the past year or so.  It's a new TV series.  It's a cartoon.  I guess I can.  And you know what? I'm happy! There isn't much to say about this trailer, although I remember the Animaniacs when I was younger, may have watched a few episodes, but I can't especially remember being a die-hard fan.  Although I have a Wacko Bumper-Car Toothbrush stand somewhere...lol The gags are there.  The Animation just looks perfect!  It's old-school but renewed without taking away the artistic integrity of the original drawings.  There were a few smiley jokes, like when Dot whacks the Warner Brothers with a huge mallet and says, "...I'm still a knock out", that made me smile.  But the two funnies

(series review) - Lovecraft Country

I heard about this show and I don't know what I was doing/watching at the time (many things I'm sure), but for some reason I got onto this show well late and spent a couple days binge watching to catch up.  The show started in August and I'm sure I got into it mid-late September after I kept hearing how good it was.  And were the stories true? Yes and definitely YES!!! You see, this show is about a man named Atticus Freeman, a Korean war veteran who arrives in Chicago to see his family.  He is given a letter which is from his missing father asking him to travel across Jim Crow America to find out about his heritage.  Upon this journey, as well as trying to avoid racist attacks from white America, Atticus, his uncle George and George's friend Letitia, set on a road trip that leads them to hidden societies, family secrets, monsters and legacy that will change Atticus' life forever.  In the mix of all of this, Atticus's Aunt Hippolyta and Leti's older sister Ru

(series review) [STREAMING] - The Boys: Season 2

So last year, we were taken aback by two major superhero TV shows.  You would have thought the world had Superhero Fatigue, but in all honesty, us superhero content lovers simply are not tired from the movies and many other TV shows there is out there, but we do want something different, something a bit more edgy, something more adult and we got it with Umbrella Academy season 1 and The Boys season 1. Having looked into my crystal ball or having been told by a future version of myself that had travelled back in time, I knew to take up reviewing TV series and trailers because the year 2020 was going to be a colossal mess.  I only took that up around November of last year so, with that said, this review will be a little longer just to recap the events of season 1 which came months before I started.  I will try not to give away too many spoilers for those who still have not watched. The world of The Boys is set in a world where Superheroes are real.  They are the ultimate crime fighters w

(trailer review) - The 355

*Insert 90's movie trailer voice* From the studio that brought you Jason Bourne.  Unfortunately, this trailer feels lacking and I'm not quite sure what it is.  I'd like to see it but the trailer for Jason Bourne had more fighting in it I'm sure.  Or maybe it seemed more high-octane.  There was a small small explosion in the trailer and Jessica rapels down to the lower floor but, show me something cool like bigger stunts or more of that motorbike chase.  So essentially, Oceans 8 meets extraction and a touch of Mission Impossible.  The climbing on the outside of the building is definitely a call out to Ghost Protocol though and I like that.  I feel like saying from the studio that brought you Jason Bourne has skewed my view before I even started getting into it. I just don't know.  I just don't want this to be a Charlies Angels as this definitely has potential and I'm loving the diversity, I mean, Lupita is black and British.  Representation matters.  It feels

(trailer review) - The Witches

I can honestly tell you that I haven't the foggiest to, if I remember reading the Roald Dahl book 'The Witches'.  I remember 'The BFG' and 'Matilda', I may have even read 'James and the Giant Peach' but The Witches, not a clue.  I liked his books too.  However, having watched this trailer, it looks like the book may have been a fun read as this trailer looks really really good. First off for me was Chris Rock, it sounded like him narrating.  I actually don't mind his voice as a Narrator as he has been in animation with voiceover work and he IS really good.  Secondly, Octavia Spencer.  Having just recently seen 'Ma' which was decent but sinister and with voice work in 'Onward' and 'Dolittle', she's really getting some good roles.  Thirdly, last but not least, Anne 'you silly woman, why did you go for the data!?' Hathaway (I'm only now slowly forgiving her for what she did in Interstellar ), she is looking an

(trailer review) - Free Guy

( Original Trailer ) I remember seeing the first trailer to this almost a while year ago and it seemed cool, however with some really crazy and laugh out loud bits in it, not something that seemed amazing though, if you know what I mean.  It didn't show enough.  It gave me the impression of a man (NPC - Non Playable Character) in a game world (kind of like Wreck-It Ralph) and he has become a "Free-Thinker" and goes out to live a different life from the samey samey mundane world he's known to love but has now become bored of his role in it. This trailer, 10 months later gives us just that little bit more.  More Lil Rel, more actual player dynamics, more action, more story and more comedy.  The part where he gets hit by the two cars is still hilarious.  The more I watch the trailer, it literally reminds me of a film version of the Grand Theft Auto game series by Rockstar and how sometimes in a lobby (or most times to be fair) it is actual pandemonium.  Low flying planes

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

First of all, I would be lying if I said I wasn't interested in watching this movie.  The first one, even though I didn't go into the story or any details much, due to spoilers of course, I can tell you that I laughed soo hard that I found it soo difficult to breathe whist tears was streaming down my face.  The movie was THAT funny.  Considering the film is 14 years old, it was the scene where Borat was fighting his friend naked in the hotel.  I DIED.  Simply watching this trailer for the sequel, the line where he says to the police officer "Only man and bears are allowed inside car" is just hilarious! I honestly feel, there will be MORE insane moments like the wrestling fight with his friend i the first one and more outrageous things said, like in the middle where he says, "did you ever put one inside your daughter" referencing a baby.  There is nothing much more to say other than the trailer speaks loudly for itself and I hope we all get to see this before

(film review) [STREAMING] - The Devil All The Time

When I finished watching this movie, I felt I had to watch it again.  I felt like I wasn't paying all the attention that I had needed to.  Possibly because there was narration, I wasn't fully focused, but I genuinely felt like I wasn't understanding what was going on although it was fairly simple.  Not to say it was difficult to understand but maybe it's all this streaming movies than going to the cinema.  Maybe I'm tired of it.  Maybe the film didn't really grip me, but...I enjoyed it!? So, I watched it again and this is what I have to say. The film centers around Arvin (Tom Holland) whose father served in World War II.  After the war, Willard (Bill Skarsgård) meets a lady in a diner (Haley Bennett ) and also meets a couple who are dining there.  Willard eventually marries the lady and moves to Knockemstiff, Ohio where Arvin is born.  Being haunted by the war, Willard is somewhat troubled and tries to influence God to help assist him in a situation he is going

(trailer review) - WondaVision

As we are nearing to the end of September and it was only like a few days I saw somewhere that it's only 100 days until Christmas (like anyone wants to know about that right now as this pandemic has been zapping the life out of everyone), Disney are fully on their promotion of DisneyPlus and their shows.  Only a few days ago we had a trailer for The Mandalorian: Season 2 and now we have this, WondaVision, a continuation of the stories post Marvel's Infinity Saga.  While The Falcon & The Winter Soldier was meant to be first out of the gates in August, but they had to stop due to quarantining and lockdowns etc, WondaVision might actually be the first out since The Falcon & The Winter Soldier is currently back to filming as I type.  With that said AND the fact that the Black Widow film has been pushed back from May (I think) until November (unless it moves again), THIS is the only thing that is semi-concrete enough to actually go ahead.  And this trailer...GREAT! I can see

(trailer review) - The Mandalorian: Season 2

Since Disney has joined the streaming wars, one thing they said they were going to do, was to make sure they had more Star Wars content.  And although the year of 2020 has been a shambles in many ways, not just affecting the lives and livelihood of actors, filming and movie studios, not to mentioned closed cinemas/theatres, having a soundstage (or whatever they use to make the Mandalorian, has worked out in everyones favour.  Granted, the pandemic hadn't hit their production as they had finished filming before the worldwide lockdown, but with the equipment they have, it goes to show that they have got a system in place where they can churn out episodes after episodes after episodes quickly and easily. This initial trailer is amazing!  There isn't much to it at all and it is also fairly short, but the music, what they show you and if you have seen the first season, WHAT YOU KNOW SO FAR!? It looks soo much better visually and even the world has been expanded, sorry the universe,

(trailer review) - Star Trek: Discovery: Season 3

I love me some Sci-Fi.  A lot of people feel the same like me and there are others that don't.  Personally, I don't get it - unless someone can tell me as to why they do not like Sci-Fi and their reasons, then maybe I'll accept what they are saying and leave them alone, forever... but what is there NOT to like.  Sci-Fi can essentially be fantasy, advanced technology we will never see in our lifetime, flying cars, spaceships, interstellar travel, aliens, living on beautiful worlds in distant galaxies or trying to figure out if Darth Vader is your father!  I know that was a Star Wars reference and we are talking Star Trek here and they are NOT the same, but I love me some Sci-Fi.  I like all that stuff and it amazes me that there are people who don't.  With that said, imagination, the future, all of it is captured in this trailer and having a show which is now 3 seasons in, it's only getting better and better.  You can tell more money has gone into it.  The storyline,

(trailer review) - Freaky

From the Get-Go, the name of this movie is straight up Trash!  I get the premise of the movie which is Freaky Friday but with a serial killer, but why not just add the Friday to it?  Or call it Killingly Freaky? I dunno, but Freaky by itself just sounds silly or maybe it's just me!? Anywho, this trailer, I thought it was going to be some nonsense and although it might still end up being some nonsense, I'm not going to lie to you all, but this trailer made me laugh out loud on several occasions.  Freaky Friday with a grown man playing a teenage girl like Jack black in Jumanji (and he was seriously killing it, it was freakily funny), I would simply watch this film for exactly what it is intended to do, scare you but bring in some laughs.  Blumhouse have churned out a few really good ones and a few stinkers here and there, but for the most part, they are mostly great quality.  I'd like to see another trailer, I think, but if I need something to switch off and get a few creepy

(trailer review) - Dune

What is wild is that, I remembered the Dune trailer was dropping today.  Just watched the trailer for the trailer and said, "The trailer is probably going to drop in the next few minutes...lol" because I sensed the trailer was about to drop, finished posting, searched for the trailer and there it was...posted 3minutes ago...WILD!!! THIS TRAILER THOUGH!!! I've never watched the original Dune from back in the day.  I saw some pictures prior to posting this and it doesn't hold up at all.  Everything looks like a set, it looks like the old Planet of the Apes from way back when.  Maybe they came out at a similar time, I would need to look that up.  But I wasn't captivated by the small images I saw to want to watch.  Maybe in 40-60 years time, folks would look at this trailer and think the same, but damn does this film look beautiful!  Visually stunning and a film that seems to be about two families who have been in a life long beef with one another on a Lord of the Ri
