(trailer review) - Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire

  I haver probably said this somewhere on this blog that I have always been a Ghostbusters fan. I am not entirely sure as to what it is that draws me in, but I have always liked the movies, well...the first movies we it took me a long time to watch the second. I do not really remember watching the cartoon religiously but I am sure I watched a few episodes. I got the Xbox game that came out several years ago and enjoyed that (not sure if I completed it but I did enjoy it). I watched the all women's Ghostbusters reboot  they did and that was, well...ok-ish, more confusing than anything. When Ghostbusters Afterlife came out, I went to see it and really enjoyed it. I would not say I am a super fan as I am sure there are other games and mediums I have not seen, played or have taken an interest in, but I will still stand by what I have said, I like Ghostbusters. This trailer though, I have some reservations but I am intrigued by it. Although Dan Ackroyd has been known to try and get anot

(trailer review) - Monkey Man

The "younger" British talent seem to be stepping up and taking things a little further from simply just acting to directing and I love it! We all remember little Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire, right? He has come a long way from acting in what we Brits remember as a character from the TV show, 'Skins' with fellow actors Nicholas Hoult and Daniel Kaluuya, I have not personally seen him in much unlike the other two actors, but he is a decent actor. 'The Green Knight' was cool and very different, and I have heard so much about him in other shows and films as being really good, so seeing this trailer has brightened up my day. I have not seen many or any Bollywood movies, but when I watched Ms. Marvel, I loved the settings and scenery we got to experience in that show. Extraction with Chris Hemsworth was similar and even in a cartoon-like Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, it was and is simply, a breath of fresh air from seeing New York all the time, L.A, Flo

(trailer review) - Shogun

I believe the question was asked to JC (someone I listen to on YouTube), "which comic book or novel would you like to see adapted as a TV show or movie" (it might have been TV show), or a conversation about adaptations went towards him mentioning Shogun. He said it was one of the best things he has ever read and ever since a child, wanted to see it adapted. That was the first time I had heard of Shogun. There are a lot of things I do not know, have experienced or witnessed in life and recently, another person came onto my radar expression the same sentiments towards Shogun and this series. Having seen this trailer and if you have read my Blue Eye Samurai review, you know this is definitely up my street. This trailer seems to show a developing relationship between a man who became "shipwrecked" on the island and a woman from the island whose father is the Shogun, maybe? Maybe the title of Shogun is something given to you by an elder? Maybe the shipwrecked guy becomes

(trailer review) - Road House

I will start off by saying, I have not seen Road House, although I am aware of it and who starred in it, the late great Patrick Swayze from Ghost and Point Break, but I do not think I was interested at all at the time of me learning about this movie. It was from a time where films like this were simply not on my radar. They were not "action packed" for me. You know, the quippy one lines and explosions, so upon seeing this trailer, I am keen to see what the original looks like. Jake is a great actor and he looks great! A man who used to be a MMA fighter, retired or whatever, but spends his time fighting people who do wrong on the innocent. A take the law into your own hands vigilante type of hero of the neighborhood, love it. Those slaps were hardcore and very VERY rude. I was sold on the slaps and then we got into more of the story and Connor. I do not believe I have seen him in anything, nor do I care for him, but this does look interesting as the main heavy going up against

(trailer review) - Avatar: The Last Airbender

So, true story, maybe even funny too. I have never watched a single episode of the cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender. I may have seen clips back in the day, but I recognise the guy with the blue arrow on his head. Some years ago, I remember seeing a trailer for Avatar: The Last Airbender called 'The Last Airbender', directed by M. Night Shyamalan and I could tell from that trailer, the film was going to be trash. Maybe it was simply the quality of the trailer, or maybe it was just the overall quality of the film, but I remember thinking I was not interested in watching the movie. A 14 years later, a trailer for the same IP is airred by Netflix and this looks absolutely great. It looks authentic, it looks accurate, and it looks like the clips I saw of the cartoon. I know nothing about this show from the cartoon to the live-action show. The only thing I am aware of is that people can bend or "move without touching" the elements, such as fire, wind, water, earth etc. I

(series review) - Echo

Having watched the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Hawkeye on Disney Plus a few years ago and the introduction to Echo and reintroduction of Kingpin from the Marvel Netflix Universe, having a series centred around Echo was definitely a bold choice. Yes, she was cool in Hawkeye, but she is a deaf amputee who did not speak/say much. With the Hawkeye series not doing as good as I'm guessing Marvel would have liked as it gained a lot of mixed-to-negative reviews, this series was already on the back foot. Learning about the reshoots and the problems making this series, to learning of the series not testing well with audiences, not knowing how to market the show, if Daredevil was going to be in it, if Kingpin was going to be in it, to dropping the entire five-episode show in January (the dumping ground for movies), thoughts of this show being any good was basically out the window at this point. TV MA in America is basically a 15 in the UK and the trailers showed us some of the "grit
