CAPTIVE STATE - Official Trailer

Ten years ago, they took our planet. Today, we take it back.


Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict - the collaborators and dissidents.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters


Millie Bobby Brown in Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)
                

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is headed straight for us in 2019

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will introduce enemies for the mutated lizard that fans are more familiar with. Well, known foes Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan will appear in the sequel to the 2014 film. Gareth Edwards' Godzilla pitted the monster against new creatures referred to as M.U.T.O. (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism). In the first teaser released for the sequel, a glimpse of the creatures was seen, but this new trailer will certainly give them more exposure and tease their connections to the story. It should be exciting for fans to know that Godzilla will battle familiar opponents before moving on to the main event with Kong.



Release Date:  

31 May 2019 (USA)

GitS SAC 2045 Announced for Netflix!

So Disney is pulling all their content off Netflix as they begin preparing the launch of D+, their own streaming service that they hope to compete against Netflix, but then Netflix is like I'll see your Nick Cage and Jessica Jones and raise you 1 Major Kusanagi!
Netflix announced a few days ago that a new 3D CG GitS series is coming to Netflix in 2020!
I'm cautiously optimistic the directors are Shinji Aramaki from Appleseed and Kenji Kamiyama from GitS SAC which is very reassuring! I hope they can get Yokko Kanno to do the sound track.
Netflix is kinda hit or miss with Anime, they have some AAA IP's but then they try stuff that makes ya go hmmmm like they're Deathnote live action original series.
I love this franchise but that  2017 Live Action movie with Scarjo was not good....I was hoping it would've been better but splicing together sections from the original and GitS 2 Innocence and SAC does not make a good movie.

Avengers Endgame Trailer Impressions

Oh boy the hype for Avengers Endgame is so cray cray right now! The internet is frame by framing the trailer, theorizing, hypothesizing all on a 2 minute 26 second trailer.....remember how we were all doing this for the Last Jedi? And then we got ya mamma jokes and Leia Poppins and grumpy Luke and UGGGH.
Now we know Captain Marvel is going to play a big role in End Game What do you think will happen if  she tells Tony Stark to sit down and STFU and doesn't share the plan to save the Avengers. Then Loki shows up and slices Thanos in half, half way thru the movie and then Steve Rodger and Tony die using the quantum realm to stop Thanos in the past. And what If Ronin is about to destroy the Infinity Gauntlet but at the last second Dr Helen Cho (age of Ultron) shows up and bumps into Ronin and makes him miss his shot....(I know she's dead) and tells him she did it because she loves him.
Yeahhhhh that'll never happen, that's what us Star Wars fans thought in the height of our fevered fandom.......

Anywho the Endgame trailer brought the feels on pretty heavy! Then Scott Lang shows up and totally shoe horns in a little comic relief.....meh.

Am I excited for April 26th? HELL YEAH! Endgame has a monumental task of wrapping up the events of Infinity War AND segwaying into phase 4 of the MCU.

Captain Marvel's second Trailer

Holy cliche quotes Batman!
"I'm not here to fight your war, I'm going to end it"
I was excited for this movie last year but these trailer's are just not doing it for me!
I think this trailer would benefit from some 90's grunge music instead of the canned "epic/ extreme sound track".
Why so serious Brie?

Wreck it Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Interwebs My thoughts and Impressions

I took my kids to see Wreck it Ralph 2 Sunday.

My son liked the original more and I agree but for different reasons.

So in the first movie Ralph is tired of his predetermined lot in life to be a villain and literally abandons his game to better his life....to be a hero! He's driven, he's motivated! In the sequel Ralph is perfectly content with his life Go to Work hang out with Vanellope at Tappers, watch the sun rise....rinse- repeat. He's a bum so to speak. As long as his bestie (Vanellope) is there with him everything is irie...

The macguffin in this movie is the steering wheel for the Sugar Rush game which gets broken as a player wrestles against Vanellope as she drives on the "new" track Ralph makes for her. This scene is clearly there to demonstrate that Vanellope longs for something more in her life similar to Ralph in the first movie and the Polar opposite of Ralph in this movie.  Good guy Ralph figures out how to save Vanellope and all the citizens of Sugar Rush that are now game less.....by going to the interwebz!

So Ralph has a solid plan but once they arrive Ralph becomes a complete imbecile and Vanellope just gets it.......so Ralph being the older character is a metaphor for the older folks IRL and Vanellope is a millennial.....GTFOH!

When I saw the trailer with Vanellope and the Disney princesses I thought it was cute and entertaining then the next trailer that showcased her in the Disney realm of the web was crazy and cool but when I left the theater in retrospect it came across as self perpetuating drivel. 
Psst if you've seen the trailers you've seen the best parts of WiR2.
I also noticed a new trend within the disney animated movies, they literally call themselves out for laugh's! The first time I saw it was in Frozen when Elsa calls out Anna for falling in love with a guy she met only hours earlier. It's in WiR2 even more in your face when Vanellope meets the Disney Princesses. So this movie is self deprecating and self perpetuating at the same time. That's bizarre!
I'm not gonna nitpick the entire movie, there are aspects I liked but I found Ralph's character development frustrating and too close to real life issues.
Long story short, for me this movie turned out to be a message from Disney to Star Wars fans....
Ralph = Star Wars Fans
Vanellope = OT
And Ralph's speech to the Giant Ralph virus is Disney telling the fans ya gotta let go of the past and embrace change no matter how painful it is.
But that's what I saw in this movie, my son told me he didn't like it as much as the first because it was sad and he didn't leave the theater feeling as hopeful as he did from the original......
Welcome to my world buddy! Now you know how my generation feels about Disney's Star Wars!
WTF is going on Disney!?! Your movies are supposed to bring smiles to peoples faces!
Time to crack the ice and reanimate Walt!
C
ps: where is world star hip hop in WiR's internet?

SFV 2018 Holiday DLC Costumes

Who's got that holiday spirit? Blanka does! Cody  , Sakura and Falke also!
So if I were only gonna get one of these (and I am only getting one) it will be Falke's!
I like Cody's, Sakura's looks like jail bait and WTF is Blanka wearing!?
Falke's wardrobe is certainly growing, considering she is the second to last used character in the entire roster. (I'm one of the 10 people who use her)
