(trailer review) - Ozark: Season 4

( First Look Trailer ) You know when you know something is going to be mad! This is definitely that time. And this is definitely it! So, in September, these guys dropped a first look trailer and I said what I said..." at this point I'm all in ". However, watching this trailer, I'm fully stressed out! Have you tried to watch this trailer and listen to what is being said and fully comprehend the magnitude of what is going on? Although there is a few shots in this and creatively, going backwards from a car accident on a busy road, if you think about the previous seasons and what happened, if you do not feel just a little stressed or on edge, you might need to see a professional about your condition. Oh by the way, there is also an announcement trailer they dropped last month i completely missed. This could not come out soon enough.   Directed by  Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams and starring Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, You can comment down below to enter in discussions. T

(trailer review) - Don't Look Up

( Teaser Trailer ) First of all, although I've said it before, I will say it again, this film looks absolutely crazy and funny.  Considering there is soo much quality talent in this movie and the delivery from these actors, is this film campaigning for an Oscar? DiCaprio, Hill, Streep and Lawrence alone are absolutely killing it! Even more in this trailer, with the addition of Pearlman, Perry and Blanchett, like, is this equivalent of a Wes Anderson movie? This trailer not only shows us much more than the previous trailer, but more laughs and comic antics and more actors, but maybe I missed this was based on a real life situation, this film is a definite must see for me as it looks like  cleverly written and crafted film that might actually win a few awards. Directed  by Adam McKay and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Timothée Chalamet, Ron Perlman, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep You can co

(trailer review) - Spider-Man: No Way Home

  ( Teaser Trailer ) As I previously said in my last trailer review, "This has to be Hollywood's worse kept secret and with the entire UNIVERSE (it would seem) wanting to see a Spider-Man trailer, Sony has been forced to drop the trailer..." But this trailer is not only a GREAT trailer, Sony are still holding all the cards and I love it! Whilst this has been spoken about for likely a year and a half, rumours, speculations and all sorts in abundance, this trailer gives a lot away whilst holding onto the "surprise" everyone has been talking about for what seems like many moons now.  Is it true? Is it not? Who cares at this point?  This trailer does enough to allude that these "other spider-men" are in the movie, to even....what it seems, have been digitally erased them from this trailer.  It is great seeing Sandman and The Lizard, but Electro looks amazing, especially with his design, mostly comic-book accurate.  Seeing Doc-Ock back and Green Goblin, bot

(trailer review) - Baymax

(Official Trailer) A series called Baymax from Big Hero 6!? Nah...I'm not going to lie, but learning about this made me smile because I really enjoyed Big Hero 6 as I found the film really good, but at the same time, Big Hero 6 was really dark in places. [SPOILERS] Big Hero 6 cam out in 2014, but when the brother died, I was devastated and couldn't believe Disney would hit me like that.  Right in the feels.  I was in soo much shock I was a little angry that Disney went out their way to crush you at the beginning of the movie! The animation looks sooo good.  Pixar at this rate are Gods in the game at this point as they know how to juggle child and adult friendly content, with jokes and for it to be understood by both children and adults alike and usually very entertaining.  I've forgotten how funny Baymax itself is and that coffee shop part was funny..."Steve???".  It would be interesting to know the story and as to why Baymax seems alone in this movie. Directed  b

(trailer review) - Ghostbusters: Afterlife

December 2019 was when we got the first trailer and aost exactly 2 years later, we get the final trailer and whilst this trailer shows us more action, more hints to cameos and...well, more ghosts and ghouls, this trailer did nothing for me. The aim of a trailer is to get you interested in a film and move the bar for you to get you interested.  I was already interested. This trailer didn't do anything more other reconfirming that I want to see it.  And according to this trailer, The Black man is ever ready.

(film review) - Dune

I'll start off by saying, I've heard of Dune.  I have heard that when George Lucas created the story of Star Wars, he took ideas from the Dune books from back in the day.  I've not read the books nor seen the 1984 movie of the same name either, but you can google the film to see clips and gifs of it and if I'm honest, it is definitely not visually appealing (to me anyway).  As well as learning that the film is not very good, seeing this film with a clean slate with nothing but the trailers watched, I was definitely in for a long movie of epic sci-fi proportions to try and get a grips with and get to learn, know, understand and hopefully like.  Also, having seen, The French Dispatch last week, It would be nice to see something else with Tim and see what all the hype is about regarding him being the next Daniel Day-Lewis and such.  So, did the movie please me or did I dislike it or have problems with it?  Well, let me let you know! Paul Atreides is the ducal heir of House

(trailer review) - The Book of Boba Fett

  "Please, speak freely..." I definitely know I'm not the only who was just a little gassed off of this trailer.  For those who watched The Mandalorian season 2, will know that a lot of things have happened in the Star Wars Universe and one of them is that, the man, the myth, the legend, Bob's Fett is back and he looks to be taking names and kicking ass! Set after the events of 'Return of the Jedi' but before 'The Force Awakens', there is a lot of stories to be told and this looks like it's going to be a great story. These Disney+ Star Wars shows seem to take bits and pieces from ALL Star Wars lore and put them into a TV show and it does make for entertaining TV.  We have seen things from the Prequels via flashbacks, things from 'The Clone Wars' (and the cartoon) and it's all been really good and not as spectacle like the sequel series.  No shade at all, but there are some who don't feel that the sequel trilogy is Star Wars and/or o

(trailer review) - The Witcher: Season 2

( Teaser Trailer ) Now this is a much better trailer than the last one.  This trailer shows us MORE rather than bits of what happened in season one and damn, does this look like the money has gone into it.  I'm not saying that the first season looked like no money was out into it, but it definitely looks like a quality jump. And as I have said before, the issue o had with the first season, whilst I got into it, I couldn't get INTO it and found it hard to track.  The backwards and forwards through time was messing with me and I couldn't follow the story well, hopefully, season two will not have any of that for those with simple minds, eh?  I'm really liking the look of this and the characters with come to know.  It would be interesting how big in scope this story will go, because it IS looking a lot grander!

(trailer review) - Masters of the Universe: Revelation - Part 2

When I finished the first part (and like many others, I never knew it was a first part), I thought it was good.  The twist at the end had me shocked and smiling and I thought it was a great idea, however...the internet cried foul!  The internet went up in flames and fanboys cried and attacked Kevin Smith in any way they could.  Some even said they were done with him and his films etc.  Me, I was unbothered.  Why? Well, it wasn't all of the story.  This second part trailer though, is GREAT!!! There are going to be people who say silly things like, "they had to show this trailer and all the action" not realising it was all apart of the plan and of you ask me, the scale of this! The fact that Prince Adam says he can channel himself INTO He-Man without the Sword.....JUST WOW! Lion-O needs to grow his sword and Bravestarr needs to say chants.  I can see a bunch of people eating their words and I wish I had the links of those who were upset because I would definitely like to he

(trailer review) - Lightyear

  Here's something funny!  I heard about this a while back and although I've seen the thumbnail picture a couple times, this was not something that had stuck with me so ultimately, I completely forgot about it.  Now, upon watching this trailer, I'm legit taken aback with ALL THE DAMN QUESTIONS!!!! Whilst I knew the voice was going to be Chris Evans, this trailer had me asking... "Is this like another Toy Story?", "Is it considered a Toy Story Spin-off", "No, wait...this is the Buzz Lightyear that the Buzz Lightyear toy is based off of IN the Toy Story Cartoon movies, right?", "Wait, Pixar!?!", "Does this mean we could get a Woody?"  I had ALL the questions!!! But upon watching this trailer, although very "word-less", this trailer looks great. I'm loving the animation and I would love to see the Buzz Lightyear character and his universe which doesn't pertain to the Toy Story movies, if that makes sense.  Als

(trailer review) - Ambulance

Ok Michael.  I'm sure I can address Mr. Bay as Michael at this rate.  I've never been one to shy away from saying what I dislike about Michael Bay's directing and have also labelled Zach Snyder as a better Michael Bay than Michael Bay, but I'm pretty sure I've said somewhere that occasionally, just occasionally, Michael Bay will pull out some great movies from time to time.  I'm not going to rack my brain as to which movies I can pull for example, other than Pain & Gain, for now, but he DOES have it in him than glorified swirling shots and unnecessarily explosions.  The fact he got two (arguably) great actors, in their prime, dropping nothing but great content of recent, I have to be involved with this movie, regardless of how I have felt over Michael Bay's directing of late....plus Yahya right now might even be considered to be the hardest working man next to or has even surpassed Dwayne Johnson at this point! Two brothers, adopted brothers, (I think of

(trailer review) - Peacemaker

  First of all, I'd like to say that, if James Gunn wasn't fired form Disney over tweets that were over 10 years old, we would not be having this trailer.  Think about it! James Gunn was fired from Disney having already written Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Warner Bros. and Detective Comics, snapped him up immediately.  They let him do any film he wanted and he chose the Suicide Squad franchise (such a bold choice).  If those chain of events never happened, we would never have gotten this wild trailer for a character named Peacemaker who was introduced in the latest  Suicide Squad movie which was very good.  Sit with that for a moment.  And if you need any help, watch The Suicide Squad and come back to me. This trailer is bonkers! It is funny and if I'm honest, it carries the same level of humour and heart that the movie 'The Suicide Squad' carries and if you read my review, you know I really enjoyed tat movie.  At present, I'm not 100% sure where the movie

(trailer review) - Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

  What I will say off the bat is, the Resident Evil movies were terrible.  They were horrendous BUT, some people liked them and had fun with them.  I was not one of those people.  I saw the first movie and it looked nothing like the first game I played and never completed on the first PlayStation (later called the PSOne).  I then went on to play a little bit of Resident Evil 2 and if I'm honest, I just couldn't get into them how I wanted because those computer games scared me a little, but I would run out of bullets and all that puzzle solving, hassle.  I did get and play Resident Evil 5 and I actually did really enjoy that one.  I was always intrigued with Resident evil and the lore was sooo interesting, but it really did stem from the first game...the mansion, the locked doors, the Lickers, so that first movie was just garbage and I believe I saw another after that, which was also garbage, but THIS trailer, well...it looks alright. The Music is terrible in this trailer, I'

(trailer review) - The Batman

( Teaser Trailer ) Do yourself a favour.  Try to remember all those friends, colleagues and family members who heard Robert Patterson was going to be Batman and they all ranted, raved, screamed and cried about him.  The guy from Twilight and that he isn't a great actor...show them this trailer and listen to their views having seen the trailer.  Then cut them off and never speak to them again.  You don't need that type of negativity in your life! This trailer looks amazing! Yo! This trailer! This trailer! That hallway bit where he is walking and they are firing at him and he is simply walking towards them... then beats them up to the muzzle flashes...man! This trailer looks amazing.  That's all I can say right now!  Shots with The Penguin.  The many shots with Catwoman. Alfred.  Matt Reeves is simply doing the damn business! Directed  by Matt Reeves an starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Barry Keoghan, Jayme Laws

(trailer review) - Scream

Hello Sydney! That's iconic! Even I know that line and I couldn't tell you where I last left off with the Scream franchise.  I believe I stopped after Scream 3 but I cannot for sure say that I watched Scream 3 but I know I watched 1 & 2.  These films where they are rejuvenating the franchise and bring it back for the old heads as well as the fresh eyes who are yet to see or get involved with these franchises, aren't doing a terrible job.  While I liked Candyman, I felt I was too far removed from the mythos of Candyman and the film that came after or, well...the franchise, so maybe I need to re-watch these movies before I watch the new incarnations. This trailer was cool.  A slasher film in the vein of the old school movies, bringing back the old school characters AND on top of that, still coming across scary and frightening like they literally picked up the script for the first movie and just re-wrote it with different character name and used the old character names as

(trailer review) - Dune

(Final Trailer) ( Official Main Trailer ) ( Official Trailer ) ( Official Trailer Teaser ) Could this movie get any more epic.  The trailer literally says big and bold for you to see and read, 'The Next Star Wars, Lord of the Rings is here' (albeit from Collider), but they are not wrong.  A space epic adventure story of good, bad and fights between families with such an epic cast!  Game of Thrones but in space maybe? This trailer gives you even more than the previous trailers and I can't wait to see the movie now.  It just looks epic!  This trailer also gave me Black Panther and Avatar vibes.  The moment Thanos (Josh Brolin) says "they are not human, they're brutal", reminds me of Claw (Andy Serkis) talking about the Wankandan's calling them "savages" and when Stephen Lang were describing the Na'vi in Avatar.  It's the distain for the inhabitants of the planet and likely trying to get control of the Spice which I believe is ON the planet

(trailer review) - Lost In Space: Season 3

I remember seeing or hearing somewhere that there would be a season 3 and that Season 3 would be the final season.  Whilst the show isn't jaw dropping in the least, it is at least, entertaining and I was intrigued as to what was going to happen next.  I also feel like, had this been a weekly release, people would have gravitated to it more because, like I said, it is entertaining, so seeing this teaser trailer has me really intrigued. For those who remember the series from back in the day and then the lacklustre movie, this rendition of Lost In Space was a very different take on the show and movie (from what I vaguely remember) but I really liked the difference and where they were going with it.  The show is very Sci-Fi and I love that.  This trailer shows a physically older Will Robinson who claims this is his final transmission because, once again, he has messed things up.  Will is a problem child and it will be interesting to see where this final season goes.  I loved the twist

(trailer review) - House of The Dragon

Finally, FINALLY, we have a trailer for one of the world's most popular and most eventful shows that has graced us over the years.  If not one of, THE MOST popular event show ever!  I got into it when I believe it was season 3 deep and I got onto season 1.  My mate said to me to get on it, as he thought I would like it...and he wasn't wrong.  The thing with Game of Thrones is, it wasn't for everybody.  Some people don't like fantasy, medieval times, dragons etc.  Hey, I know people who don't like "Zombies".  And while GoT isn't like a Lord of the Rings and such, it is the characters you fell in love with or loved to hate and the legacy and lore woven into the show.  Everybody got involved and if anything, it found its way into the pop culture zeitgeist.  People felt like they were missing out on a brilliant show because EVERYONE was talking about it in the office.  There are videos, groups on Facebook and even Whatsapp groups about this show.  It was T

(trailer review) - The Harder They Fall

( Official Teaser Trailer ) I did say in my last review that the trailer for this film is superb, but damn...this one is just that much better.  It's Black History Month here in the UK and I feel Netflix could have done us a Solid by dropping this a touch early because 3rd November 2021 is a long wait. While it is nice to see an all-star black cast like this, the visuals, the music, everything just looks stunning! It looks like Jonathan Major's character is after Idris Elba and his gang who broke him out of prison for whatever reasons, maybe he is a sherif of that town or maybe there is a personal vendetta, but having this story played out, where if I'm not mistaken is actually based on or loosely based on true events, will be a sight to behold. As  said in my last review, 'I cannot wait to see this and learn more about these people in history as in most film and westerns, you don't ever really see black people as they are usually far and few, so it is nice to have

(trailer review) - The Witcher: Season 2

I'm not going to behave and act as though I completely followed and understood season 1 of this show.  Whilst I watched it, a lot of it just wasn't sinking in.  I attempted to watch this show at least 3 times and it still wasn't sinking in so it is definitely going to be a re-watch before this second season is viewed because whilst I understood some things, the flashbacks at first were not apparent to me.  It was the backwards and forwards through time that I didn't understand nor get/follow. This combination trailer of old footage and new footage is great though.  I'm not going to try and guess what is going on as I barely remember what happened in the first season, but for what I saw, I really enjoyed the first season and from this trailer, I really enjoyed this too, so it would be interesting to get a better trailer and something that could maybe show/tell us more of the second seasons' storyline.  Henry Cavill is just perfect though, I'm just waiting for

(trailer review) - Stranger Things: Season 4

( Eleven, are you listening Trailer ) I woke up to a ton of trailers this morning and with getting through my list I watched this trailer and I can tell you for a fact, this trailer is totally lost on me.  In comparison to the last trailer, although this one is called "Creel house", we see the gang doing some investigating on a house, I'm not sure why, but it is either looking for a clue or a doorway to get to the upside-down and help Elle as the house is known for spirits or bad energy? Wild guess! The family looks great at the beginning, but I am getting a 'The Shinning' vibe from when everything seems all nice (Fallout 3 music and all) and a quick flash cut to the father standing by the door with seemingly dead children on the floor we assumed he killed in a fit of rage.  It would be very interesting if, in his line of work, he volunteered for an experiment to be an enhanced human as he was barely paying the bills, they gave him this new home and he slowly went

(trailer review) - Extraction 2

  I really enjoyed the first extraction film.  Chris Hemsworth not playing Thor and bussing heads, fighting and running and trying to keep this little boy alive was an entertaining watch.  If you have read my review, the fight scenes were great and there is a tracking shot in there which is great as I love tracking shots, but overall...I loved the movie.   When the movie came to an end, I did wonder if they would be able to make a sequel or prequel, however how would they do this? Could they maybe focus on a different character, but then this trailer came out and, well...it seems like it will be a continuation.  I'm not entirely mad at that, but I would like to know how this can be explained. The trailer is a teaser that literally gives us the last few moments in the movie with our star of the movie, Rake and a couple of other characters.  Whilst Rake was excellent throughout the movie, it would be nice to have him back bussing heads, like how he was in the first movie, but where t

(trailer review) - Ozark: Season 4

If you haven't read my series 3 review, it goes without saying that Ozark is a show that caught me off-guard and I love it! A family who get dragged into a crime syndicate of money laundering and murders. Where, not only are they trying to have a normal but dysfunctional life, they are also trying to stay alive and not be killed or jailed . This first look trailer doesn't show us much at all, but having seen the first 3 seasons already, this trailer reminds you where we left off and how potentially messed up things are going to get.  A proper trailer will be better, but I'm all in at this point.

(film review) - Candyman

The first trailer for this movie came out in February 2020 and due to world changing events such as the Corona Virus Pandemic, trailers started popping up again around June 2021 and whilst this film have been on the shelf waiting for a release date and eventually a release, I couldn't wait to tuck into this movie.  I saw the original Candy when I was younger and I liked it.  Tony Todd is definitely a house hold name and if you don't know the name, you know the voice. I believe I saw Candyman 2 and no others, if there were any others.  So this movie seemed to be a continuation from the previous movies, a franchise reboot or both and I'm guessing you are wondering if I thought it was worth the wait, well sorta. Anthony McCoy is a struggling visual artist trying to get his work well recognised and out there.  He lives with his girlfriend Brianna Cartwright an Art Gallery Director and during a get together with Brianna's brother Troy and his partner Grady, troy tells a haun

(trailer review) - YOU: Season 3

  So, we now have the season 3 of this engaging show called YOU, about a man who gets obsessed with people he would like to pursue.  People he falls in love with in such an obsessive fashion, he will do anything for them, including get rid of and/or kill those who treat them badly in any kind of way.  On top of that, he mostly does all of this from a far! This show is great and Joe moves in such a creepy fashion and this trailer shows it.  His internal thoughts are creepy, captivating and chilling, but Love, his girlfriend is pretty much a mirror of him and it seems he can't seem to keep himself to himself and live happily ever after because there is always another woman he is obsessing over.  Couple that with Love being involved and their new born baby, Love, who is equally as psychotic as him, it will be interesting to see who would kill who in this relationship first, because...someone has got to die, right?

(trailer review) - Halloween Kills

() You know, I thought the other trailers were great! I recently watched the very first Halloween recently so I could watch the second one also named Halloween which came out. I say second one because Halloween 2018 was meant to be a reboot/continuation of the first movie completely disregarding any other Halloween movie that came after like Halloween 2, Halloween 3 up to Halloween 8??? Then there was a reboot of the franchise that only went two films deep directed by Rob Zombie.  However, David Gordon Green basically came on board and directed the 2018 version and declaring anything that came before it that isn't the 1978 version, is not canon or apart of the overall story and this trailer kills! Right now I cannot remember the 1978 version currently, but the 2018 version was decent. I enjoyed the atmospheric scenes and we are reintroduced to Michael, someone who does not seem to die, want to do or run, for that matter. Forever walking and teleporting and this trailer is no differ

(trailer review) - Don't Look Up

  What is this? We have seen DiCaprio in some great movies and in some very notable roles, but for me, this reminds me of a Wolf of Wall Street flavour, maybe somewhat with the comedy a little bit more but I don't know what it is, this looks like it's right up my street.  With that said, I just google what Adam McKay has done before this as I recognise the name and of course, Anchorman, The Other Guys, Anchorman 2 among many more, these are just the ones I've watched. This looks funny! What is it, two people discovering that the end of the world is imminent and taking the information to the presidential office and the presidential office is unphased by it all but the two discoverers are practically having a fit about the world ending? Yeah, I need to see the offical trailer but already I'm kinda sold! Seeing Turk Barrett from the MCU Netflix series, I'm definitely down! Directed  by Adam McKay and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Rob Morgan, Jonah Hill

(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!

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

  (Final US Trailer) ( Trailer 2 ) ( Big Game Spot Trailer ) ( Original Trailer ) The 4th December 2019 is when I caught the first trailer for this movie.  Imagine, several days later on the 19th December 2019, I caught the trailer for Tenet.  Tenet came out last year in August 2020 grossing just over 350 million from a 200 million budget and whilst most of Christopher Nolan movies gross averaging around 5x his budget, maybe he should have placed the film on hold like how this one has been.  Universal have held onto this film for a theatrical release and judging by this trailer, it seems as though, that was the best thing to do, especially with no day and date release. This final trailer is much different from the rest as it shows us some clips and scenes from previous Bond movies.  Bond movies have been up and down per movie which leads me to think that this one is going to be excellent and on the level of Skyfall, of we were to follow the pattern.  A story that has led him to this po

(trailer review) - The King's Man

Red Band Trailer - Please note adult themed material. I'm starting to like that we are starting to see Red Band trailers more and more as I feel they have been missing for a while.  No, I don't need the swearing and/or blood in trailers, as in, it's not essential to entice me to watch a movie, but sometimes it's nice to hear them from time to time in a trailer for a movie for that bit of tongue in cheek.  Let's face it, they don't make movies like they used to, when 15 was a 15 and 18 was an 18 and there was little to no focus on toy's or franchises. For me I feel it is all over the place currently but whatever, just give me some great movies, you know. The first movie was great and whilst I enjoyed the second one, it did lack something the first one gave.  I can't quite pinpoint it, but when you think of The Kingsmen, the second one doesn't really grab you more than the first with those excellent memorable moments and judging by this trailer, we are

(trailer review) - Spider-Man: No Way Home

I'm not sure how I feel about this! This has to be Hollywood's worse kept secret and with the entire UNIVERSE (it would seem) wanting to see a SpiderM-an trailer, Sony has been forced to drop the trailer because of a trailer leak around 24hrs ago.  I wonder if it was planned all along just to get the fans at a fever pitch or did this person who leaked it ruin the plans and the hard work many has put into this movie There were talks of not being a trailer before the film, then there were talks of a trailer being dropped next week after New York Comic-Con, but the leak, whether planned or not has forced this trailer out.  Sigh.  But what do I think of the trailer anyhow? Awesomeness personified!!! As some may know, this trailer picks up straight after the events of 'Far From Home' and Peter Parker is on the "run" as everyone knows he is Spider-Man and he was the person who "Killed" Mystereo, however, to make it that everyone forgets his identity, he se

(trailer review) - Eternals

Ok, it seems I might have missed a few trailers for this movie or Marvel have decided to be a little different with the trailers for this because this trailer shows soo much I've not seen before and it looks GREAT! Like how many trailers have they put out yet? I said before that the t ailer doesn't show me much but blimey, this trailer seems to answer all the question we had been asking.  I'm really starting to love that Marvel seem to be IN the audience's heads and tackling the question we would ask about the lore/world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  So, if this happened, why didn't so-and-so do this and come and help or why didn't blah blah come with blah blah to help.  A problem the MCU can have, is people forever asking these questions, but the real of it is, people are always out doing something else with their own problems and/or demons they need to fight. It's similar with real world things and life, you don't hear from someone because it is l

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

(Rise Up Trailer) ( Need Trailer ) ( Official Trailer ) ( Official Teaser ) Here is something you can laugh at me about.  So I've been ill for the past couple of days (it got me!), so I've not been online as much as I would normally.  I'm constantly tired, not much energy, but there is something that I did notice, a Rick Ross song poster with 3 "rings" next to it.  Considering Idris Elba was recently cast to play Knuckles in the Sonic 2 movie, it is possible, my mind was on Sonic and not the fact that the new Song "Run It" has nothing to do with Sonic, a though I had when I saw the poster and more to do with Shang-Chi, also confirmed by the end of this trailer. Haha... This is a great trailer.  It shows a bit more of the action and different characters such as Abomination a bit clearer, the shear size of him, fighting what seems to be Wong from Doctor Strange. A few fight scenes we have already scene but closing out with a gag which actually works for th

trailer review) - The Protégé

( Exclusive Official Trailer ) Due to the panini, the pandemonium, the pancake mix, the pancetta or whatever we want to label last years infamous word of 2020, the Pandemic, movies went on hold for an entire year.  Of course there were a few that tried to come out and didn't do too well, Bloodshot, Tenet etc, (although having not seen Bloodshot, Tenet WAS the better film), we are currently being inundated with trailers and movies and if I'm being honest, I do feel some films are really going to feel the wrath of a scared and concerned people.  People do not want to go into cinemas due to risking catching a case of Corona Virus 2019.  Movies such as Black Widow has not grossed the money it would have normally on opening weekend and rightfully so, because no one really wants to go to the cinema...oh, and Disney released it also on Disney+ at the same time.  People are being more selective about what they are coming out of their homes to watch.  With that said, right now, cinema&#

(trailer review) - King Richard

I don't know much about Tennis.  I know how to play it, I think.  You know, hit the ball over the net and the scoring is a little weird, but other than that, I think I am quite competent in swinging a racket and running left to right.  I actually don't mind playing the sport in video games too, but strangely enough, I don't watch it.  I don't watch Venus or Serena Williams play either.  I might have seen a few games here and there if the Tennis is on but, I've never been too involved in sport like that.  I'm the same with Football and other sports, I just don't care for them that much.  But this trailer... this trailer looks sooo so good, I am fully intrigued and would like to see this movie as I'm sure this will go into detail on the amazing work Richard has done for his family especially his daughters. I don't know much about Serena & Venus' life growing up.  I heard somewhere that the town the grew up in was riddled in gang violence etc, s

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

( Official Trailer ) ( Official Teaser ) And just like that, Marvel wants to keep the momentum going and drop yet another trailer for Shang-Chi that shows not only a few scenes we have seen before, but different parts of those same scenes/fights and could there possibly be a reason to not be involved or interested in this movie? I mean they must have thought we have forgotten about this movie or something, like the buzz has died down. The more I see of Awkwafina, brings me warmth and some much needed comedic value this movie will need to help balance out the tone.  A ruthless father trying to give his son his empire but his son is required to fight for it?  The legend of the Ten Rings?  What is done with the 10 rings and how they are being used in combat also looks great too.  Unless I'm mistaken, like a whip?  Oh and Shang-Ghi's Superhero landing is unrivalled! Directed by  Destin Daniel Cretton and starring Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Fala Chen, Meng'er Zhang, Floria

(trailer review) - Ghostbusters: Afterlife

( Mini-Puft Character Reveal Trailer ) ( Official Trailer ) When they first dropped a trailer some time in 2019!!! I honestly felt that this rendition AND reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise was seemingly closer to the original in spirit, like a spiritual successor, no pun intended.  Having seen this second trailer, I can definitely confirm and truly believe that this WILL be a much better movie than the all women one they brought out a few years ago.  Not because it was all women or anything like that, but that movie felt like it was a corpse with no heart, there was not much life to it at all and where it was funny in places, it just didn't seem to offer much. This trailer is GREAT! The tie-ins to the original Ghostbusters movie does not feel forced.  It seems as though the original two are used as an anchor to steady this ship so the story does not go off the rails.  It has enough modern to it whilst bringing back some old school elements, wasn't that that dog-beast-thingy

(trailer review) - Army of Thieves

It's funny that I read the title of this movie and instantly thought 'Den of Thieves' and questioned myself with, "Didn't they do a film with this name recently?".  My brain knew it was something familiar to me but I couldn't quite place it.  It was only when I pressed play on the trailer and saw the guy from Army of the Dead, that I realised what I was looking at, the prequel to Army of the Dead by Zack Snyder and instantly, I was intrigued. You see I read about this when I was reviewing Army of the Dead and thought it was a little strange, but of course, interesting.  The world which makes up Army of the Dead is something, for those who liked Army of the Dead, fascinating especially where there might be some time travel involved and the Zombies, might not even be, well...Zombies.  If Snyder can do a series of movies within this world but centred around different things and different story elements, it could be quite compelling, especially if you dig litt

(series review) [STREAMING] - Masters of the Universe: Revelation

I'll start off by saying, He-Man was 'that guy' when I was growing up.  I remember some of the characters as I had the toys.  He-Man was the toy before the toys for me.  Some guy who turns into this barbarian type guy with a sword who rides a panther of some sort called Battlecat.  Big sword, muscled, defeating evil, yeah buddy!  Masters of the Universe: Revelation was described to be a continuation from this show of the 80's, pick up where that show left off and going forward.  Kevin Smith, a director, stand-up comedian, writer among many other talents, is the showrunner, writer and executive producer. He-Man is about a man named Adam who uses a magical sword that turns him into a powerful god-like warrior after he utters the words "By the power of Grayskull, I have the power".  He uses this power to thwart the evil demon named Skeletor who seeks the power of Grayskull and the Power Sword.  Skeletor often joins forces with a witch named Evil-Lyn and there are
