Star Wars Rebels Season 3 mid season trailer!

The mid season trailer for the third season of Rebels has just dropped!
Much like the season 2 mid season trailer the hype this trailer brings is crazy, I just hope we don't get a bunch of filler episodes till the season finale like S2.
I don't think we will because of ALL the core stories going on this season....Ezra and Kanaan....is Ezra going to the Dark Side? Kannan and Bendu, Ezra and Maul, Maul and his quest to find "him" (which apparently he does), Thrawn, when will observations conclude and we see him implement his master strategy!?
Sabine now has the Dark Sabre! When will we meet her mother and is it Bo Katan? Did Bo visit Ben while he was on Tatooine??? Inquiring minds want to know!
Will Orsen Krennic show up this season? next?
Seeing Rex and Saw reunite was great! Did I see Death Troopers?
I'm betting we see the different Rebel Cells unite in the finale against Thrawn as Maul reunites with an old "friend". And I'm betting Zeb isn't making it to S4 and Kallus is actually a double agent! I can't wait for SWR to return this Saturday and am soo fascinated how rebels will connect to Rogue One!

The 10 Coolest Star Wars Spaceships

What would Star Wars be without the many cool space ships that populate its universe? From starfighters to military cruisers and worn hunks of junk that separate Star Wars from the chrome aesthetic of countless other sci-fi stories, this vast armada is a true marvel of cinema and the science fiction genre. 
Since the release of A New Hope in 1977, we've seen plenty of awesome ships on screen, on book covers, and in comic book panels. Who can forget the first time he/she laid eyes on an X-Wing as it prepared to attack the Death Star? Or the Millennium Falcon, as it made its escape from Tatooine? You can't possibly forget the cry of a TIE fighter once you've heard it. 
We love so many of these ships that we've decided to list our favorites in no kind of particular order. We're not ranking them. We just want to appreciate one of the best aspects of Star Wars. Oh, and we're looking at both Legends and new canon ships. Because continuity doesn't really matter in this case. That said, we'll warn you now that you won't see the Death Star or Starkiller Base on this list. One's a space station and the other is an ice planet. Not the same thing. That's not to say they're not the coolest things ever, though!

Movie Review: Shin Godzilla


I wanted to see this when it was in the theater in my neighborhood, but I couldn't due to super preggo waifu. I just got to see Shin Gojira and I can say this is a bold "reboot" to Toho's beloved franchise. Shin Gojira reinvents the origin of the King of all Monsters while using the horrific events from the 2011 earthquake and subsequent tsunami off the east coast of Japan. Shin Gojira returns to the Kaiju's roots of being a force of nature that mankind must struggle against in order to survive. I loved seeing the evolution of Gojira in the movie, the metamorphosis of Gojira on screen reminded me of Gojira Vs Destroyah.
All the typical tropes for a Gojira movie are there, people running for shelters, police helplessly trying to direct people, military/ JSDF ineffectiveness against Gojira, buildings and homes being trampled but the thing I appreciated was the contrast between the chaos and destruction and the seemingly "business as usual"  atmosphere in the board rooms with the PM and his advisers.
I appreciated the juxtaposition, it lent a level of maturity to this movie the franchise isn't known for, even the logistical obstacles the scientists faced when trying to produce the coagulant en mas was portrayed in a much more realistic manner than most, if not all previous Gojira movies.
I was also pleasantly surprised by the level of attention given to the military ops in Shin Gojira, I work in aviation and alot of the technical jargon was accurate! The vehicles were impressive looking as well I didn't have many opportunities to yell "TOY BOAT!!"
Nothing against Gareth Edwards Godzilla movie....I enjoyed it but Toho just does a better Gojira.
This ain't you're gran papy's Gojira....this Gojira IS A MONSTER, a monster born of mankind's lack of respect for Earth and this new Gojira is HOT and if he can't cool down in the oceans GET THE FUCK OUT! I can say without a shadow of a doubt the level of destruction this Gojira dolls out is insane!

I'm on the fence with the tail & dorsal lasers but aside from that I loved this movie and I am glad that Toho took some cinematic cue's from Gareth Edwards Godzilla movie, we get some real unique angles and I like the inclusion of some shaky cam footage during the chaos.
Shin Gojira is definitively in my top 5 favorite G movies of all time, it's a shame it was only in US theaters for 1 week.


GotG Vol 2 Teaser Trailer

As if MVC Infinite wasn't enough we also got the first trailer for GotG Vol 2 yesterday! So I'm driving home from work last night and I'm waiting at a light and see a close up of Baby Groot and BAM it's the new trailer! I pull over to watch it and I'm laughing out loud so hard people walking by look inside my car wondering what's going on.
Eat your heart out baby Ewoks and Gizmo! Baby Groot has gotta be the cutest, funniest F'N creature ever on the silver screen!
2017 is set to be a total Decultcha Overload!
