Alien Covenant, You Going?

speaking of movies, anybody planning on going to go see Alien Covenant this weekend? i’m still on the fence… none of my friends, or my son, really seem to have any interest in seeing it in the theater, so i’ll probably just wait for it to come out on bluray.

i might go see Guardians Vol.2 again tomorrow though… buddy asked if i wanted to go re-see it again in 3D with some peeps, and that sounds good to me since i wouldn’t mind seeing Guardians again :)

anwho, if you do go see the new Alien movie, lemme know what ya thought of it k?

Wonder Woman’s First Reactions

The First Reactions for Wonder Woman Are Spectacular

The release of Wonder Woman is just a few short weeks away and DC’s latest film is currently screening for the media. Full reviews are still under embargo—but tonight, Warner Bros. allowed non-spoiler reactions on social media, and they were almost overwhelmingly positive.

#WonderWoman is hands down the best DCEU Film to date! Film is SO GOOD. I absolutely loved it! Bravo
@elmayimbe

i’m pretty stoked to hear that the first reactions to the movie are so positive… lots of people and lots of tweets about how good the movie is, which is fucking great! been really hoping they finally did a good job on at least one of these DC movies… was flipping through the channels a few nights back and ended up watching most of “The Black Knight” again since it’s been quite awhile, and holy shit — really puts it into stark perspective, y’know?

PS. i love the opening theme song

One Sequel Alien

Alien Only Ever Needed One Sequel

No one argues that Alien and Aliens are the best films in the Alien franchise. It’s an objective, undisputed fact. After that, though, nothing is certain—is Alien 3 a good movie? How bad is Resurrection? Do the Alien vs. Predator movies count? Did you like Prometheus? The debates go on and on.

They’ll continue this week, too, with the release of Alien: Covenant. Reviews (except ours) have been mostly positive but almost universal in their claims that the film goes a bit too far in explaining the wonderful mystery of the vicious alien who first scared the crap out of us in 1979.

I believe that’s true, but I also believe we’d all be better off if things had never gotten this far. The Alien franchise should have stopped at Aliens. One original film, one sequel. Yes, Sigourney Weaver appeared in the next two; yes, Ridley Scott directed the last two. But those first two films represent the near-perfect marriage of original and sequel into a cohesive, amazing story. There was never a need to see what happened next. The only desire was to make more money.

yup, the debates on this one seem to go on and on forever… but it’s always a fun one… personally, i totally agree — really didn’t need any more after “Aliens”, which is my personal favorite out of them all to be honest.

Superman’s Mom Thinks Justice League Sucks

Superman’s Mom Hates to Be Honest, But Justice League Is Worse Than Avengers

Looks like Superman’s mom doesn’t think he’s the most special boy in all the world, or at least shes’s not that impressed with his superpowered friends. When asked whether the Justice League movie will blow Marvel’s The Avengers out of the water, Diana Lane simply said: “No.”

In an appearance on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen Live, Lane was asked by a viewer whether she could spoil any secrets about the upcoming superhero crossover, as well as whether Justice League will be better than The Avengers, which continues in 2018 with Infinity War.

“No and no,” Lane replied. “Short but honest. I hate to disappoint.”

Lane, who plays Superman’s mom Martha Kent, joins a growing list of Man of Steel actors who’ve poured salt on the wound that is the DCEU— barring Wonder Woman, which we hope is the shining light in a sea of meh. Laurence Fishburne (who played Perry White in Man of Steel) previously admitted that Marvel is kicking DC’s ass, and Amy Adams (Lois Lane) seemingly brushed off the fact that she was in the upcoming film last year.

damn man, not much of a ringing endorsement… feel like everybody and their dog pretty much thinks it all kinda sucks, which makes you wonder what the hell the movie studios and directors are doing / thinking? i mean, they have to know the response has been near universally bad.

like, really bad.

Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049’s official trailer is just as mysterious as it needs to be

i’ll be damned, but it actually looks like it just might be pretty good..! definitely has the same look and feel of Blade Runner, so at the very least it looks like they nailed it… and i absolutely love the music in the trailer — so badass.

PS. i guess Deckard wasn’t a replicant then?!

The Covenant Really Sucks

‘Alien: Covenant’ May Be the Biggest Disappointment of the Summer

Here’s a sentence I’m just incredibly sad to type: Alien: Covenant is bad.

It’s not terrible. Director Ridley Scott didn’t make some kind of hugely annoying, incoherent movie or anything like that. There are a few pockets of enjoyment in what unfolds on screen and watching it is semi-pleasant. But after the credits roll, mulling over everything you just saw, the film continues to sour like milk left out in the sun. It was good for a little bit, but not for long, and that’s just not good enough for a franchise with this history. Continue…

didn’t include anymore since it borders on “spoiler” territory, in a general kinda way… but damn, looks more and more like the internets are really disappointed in this new Alien movie… maybe even more so than with Prometheus, which i didn’t think was possible.

Review: Alien: Covenant

The Dark Tower Trailer

All the Secrets Unlocked by the Dark Tower Trailer

i know this might sound like blasphemy to a select few, but i never read the Dark Tower series… and on top of that, was never really into Stephen King’s books either, to be perfectly frank… that being said, the trailer for the movie looks cool and i’m sure it’ll end up being worth watching up on the big screen — anything with Idris Elba is usually pretty good in my book.

PS. some peeps seem suuuuuper excited by this trailer.

Ahead of its anticipated 5 May premiere, Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is teaming up with Doritos for a special promotion: a limited edition chips bag featuring a built-in cassette deck that will play the movie’s complete soundtrack.

Fans will be able to plug into the retro-looking cassette deck’s headphone jack while enjoying their snacks and recharge it for repeat listening. The 14-track album features a wide range of ‘60s and ‘70s pop, R&B, country and rock tunes.

Some of the songs are ‘Flash Light’ by the Parliament, ‘The Chain’ by Fleetwood Mac, ‘Fox on the Run’ by Sweet and ‘Surrender’ by Cheap Trick.

oh man, how fucking awesome is that?!

went ahead and looked it up on amazon, and not really surprised to find that it’s unavilable… guess they already sold out.

damnit

PS. can’t wait to see it this friday!

Ridley Scott: Aliens Are Real!

Ridley Scott Thinks Aliens Are Real and They’ll Probably Kill Us

“An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, ‘Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous,” Scott said, adding that he thinks there are at least 100 to 200 similar species out there right now.

However, Scott doesn’t think they’d be waving the white flag of peace right away. While many of us would like to believe there are Vulcans circling the galaxy waiting for Zephran Cochrane to invent warp drive, Scott thinks any aliens we encounter would probably try to blow our brains out— at least if we provoked them. So, it’d definitely be more of an Independence Day-type situation. Let’s hope Will Smith’s character can come back from the dead.

“When you see a big thing in the sky, run for it. Because they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds,” Scott said.

an age old question, to be sure… but i fully expect that if some aliens actually came to our little backwater planet, they probably wouldn’t have the best of intentions and we’d get our collective asses kicked… on the flipside, if they’re truly advanced and benevolent then i figure they’d have some kind of Star Trek style “prime directive” and would lay low, observe but not interfere.

…but that’s just me.

More Deadpool Sex?

The Deadpool Movie Could’ve Had a Lot More Sex in It

One of the most memorable moments in Deadpool is unquestionably the “Sex Every Holiday” montage between Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and Vanessa Carlisle (Monica Baccarin). While it had plenty of special themed boning, spanning the length of an entire year, turns out it there was a lot more sex we didn’t get to see.

In an interview with Conan O’Brien, Baccarin revealed that there were a lot of holiday sex scenes they shot over the course of two days (although she and Reynolds previously said it was one day of filming), but a lot of them didn’t end up in the film.“We ended up leaving just a lot on the cutting room floor, because there are a lot of holidays,” Baccarin said. “And I feel good about that—the part that was left out. I literally mean that [was] enough sex. Like nobody needs to see more than what was in the movie.”

The film version features Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, Lent, Chinese New Year, and, of course, International Women’s Day. But there are so many other holidays that could use their own horizontal hustle tributes: Flag Day. Star Wars Day/May the Fourth. Maybe get a little National Dress Up Like Your Pet Day action— that could’ve turned out some appropriately kinky shi for Deadpool.

the holiday sex scenes in deadpool were pretty awesome… but i guess this just means they have some leftovers for Deadpool 2 for us to look forward to.

Prologue: Prometheus

Watch Elizabeth Shaw Return in a Short Film Linking Prometheus and Alien: Covenant

What happened after Prometheus? How does that lead into Alien: Covenant? We won’t know for sure until the new film opens on May 19 but a new short film gives us a pretty good idea.

For Alien Day, Fox just dropped this official Alien: Covenant prologue short called The Crossing, which stars both Prometheus survivors David (Michael Fassbender) and Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace).

So this explains why David is back together in Alien Covenant and confirms that he and Shaw reach the Engineers’ planet. However, where the short cuts off if very intriguing. David is standing above the population of the Engineer planet with a bunch of those evil canisters from Prometheus. What is he going to do?

holy… shit…

i’ve had very little interest in the new alien movie after watching the trailer for it awhile back, since it just looked like another version of the same movie we’ve already had and seen… group of dipshits humans land on planet, find an alien shit, stick head in a fucking alien pod thing that opens up… aliens start running around and killing everybody… rinse and repeat a few years later… know what i mean?

i could go on and on about Prometheus, but the one lasting thing from that movie that had me curious and interested, was the little cliffhanger at the end with david & elizabeth going to the homeplanet of the engineers — now THAT is the story i’ve been waiting for!

this little teaser should be a trailer for the new movie, instead of whatever this short clip is… though seriously, talk about a “tease”. fuckers.

Mad Max: Shiny & Chrome

been meaning to pickup a copy of the “chrome edition” of Mad Max: Fury Road for awhile now, and happened to see it on amazon for $16 which i thought wasn’t too shabby — even though i’m double dipping here since i already have it on bluray… but whatever.

sat down and watched the black & white “chrome” version, which is the way that george miller originally intended it or so i’ve read, after some tasty cajun pasta… and holy shitballs.

it’s kinda hard to pick which one i like better, since both kickass… but damn, when’s the last time you sat down and watched a black & white movie that was freak’n awesome?

PS. definitely worth the 16 bucks. lol

Hasselhoff’s Guardian Rap

Once You Hear David Hasselhoff Rap About Guardians of the Galaxy Your Life Will Never Be the Same

You kind of need to see the lyrics in black and white to fully appreciate them:

Getting down and dirty with a procyon lotor

Got no people skills but he’s good with motors

That weird thing by his side an infantilized sequoia

The two of them walk by, people say “Oh Boy-a”

They ask me why I’m bringin’

A baby into battle

“Thats really irresponsible”

And getting them rattled

I say “Give me a break

Get off my back dammit”

I didn’t learn parenting

My daddy was a planet

In these times of hardship

Just remember:

We are Groot

holy shit man, i feel like i’m the twilight zone right now after listening to that… it’s so bad and yet, totally awesome… right?

Recent Worst Movies?

read a comment earlier this morning about “Interstellar” being one of the worst movies (ever?), and it’s had me thinking / wondering about what the worst movie i’ve seen this past year or so… sure seems like there’s been quite a few, but right off the top of my head i’d have to go with these two — the only question for me is:

Which is worse?

damn man, tough one!

i honestly don’t know which one i was more disappointed in… “Superman v. Batman” or “Suicide Squad”? hmmm… shit.

okay, i’ll go with suicide squad.

Interstellar vs. The Martian

this past weekend, a buddy was talking about movies and said something along the lines of “watched Interstellar again… so fucking good… blah blah blah… better than The Martian…” — and that’s where my ears perked up a little, and thought about it for a moment… personally, i liked The Martian better.

loved the science and seeing beautifoo martian landscapes… matt damon was a much better character, and it definitely had a better soundtrack that’s for damn sure… also had some good one liners, like “gonna have to science the shit outta this” and “take that Neil Armstrong!”.

i dunno, what do you guys think?

I ♥ Fast & Furious

I Love the Fast and Furious Movies, and I’m Not Ashamed

I’ll just come out and say it: Furious 7 is my favorite film so far this year, and I love the series it’s a part of. If that makes me a philistine, I couldn’t care less.

Evidently, moviegoers and film critics nationwide agree. Not only did Furious 7 have the largest-ever box-office opening weekend in April (and the ninth-largest ever, period), it’s expected to keep its place at the top this coming weekend and holds an 82 percent “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie is incredibly fun. In this latest installment, we get to see street racer Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) & Co. parachute cars out of cargo planes, drive them mid-air through one Abu Dhabi skyscraper into another, and dodge the attacks of a rogue predator drone on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. I’ve never been in a screening where the audience has cheered and burst into applause throughout more than in Furious 7 — in addition to its electrifying action, it’s chock-full of priceless one-liners delivered by stars like Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at just the right moments, and in just deadpan enough a fashion that they don’t come off as too ridiculous. Continue…

i pulled up NRO as i typically do on friday mornings, but my eyes immediately focused on this one… not something you’d typically see on there, so of course i was curious… not only that, but i’ve been a fan of the movies — mostly since Fast Five, which i thought was surprisingly good.

haven’t actually gone to the theater to see one, but to be honest i’m kinda curious about this new one that out today in theaters… not sure if it’s worth it, but i might go.

anybody else going to see it in the theater this weekend?
