I Have a Question: Is There Too Much Spider-Man?

In Hollywood, there are certain superheroes that can’t go very long without being rebooted. Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, these heroes are the ones that have been played by tons of different actors, have been given tons of different shows, live-action and animated, and will always remain in our eyes. And Spider-Man seems to have outgrown both his superhero buddies in the last few years with his growing presence.

We have an animated Spider-Man show on Disney XD. There’s Tom Holland’s rendition of the web-slinging hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We had a Venom movie, which isn’t technically Spider-Man but because he’s part of the Spider-Man universe and the because they’re already calling for Spider-Man to appear in the Venom sequel it feels like a Spider-Man movie. And now there’s an animated film focusing on not just one Spider-Man, not two Spider-Men, not even three Spider-Men, but I think five! Spider-People. It feels like a Spider-Man invasion.

What makes it all the more confusing is that all of these stories featuring the teenage hero seem to be in their respective universes. Kevin Feige has said that he wants to bring Miles Morales to the MCU but of course, that story won’t be connected to the animated movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. And then there’s the idea that, like I said before, Spider-Man may make an appearance in the next Venom movie which is even more confusing. To have one single hero be in so many places at once can be very confusing.

Now I don’t exactly care that Spider-Man is everywhere but is there a point when there’s an overload? That’s like if there were three different James Bond stories this year. It would be a bit weird.

How do you feel about the multiple Spider-Man movies and the television show? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

The Cast of ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Been Released

As you may already know Disney is making a streaming service complete with exclusive content and one of its earliest gifts to all us Star Wars fans is a live-action Star Wars series called The Mandalorian. Since the news of the show was released a few months ago I have been so excited about this series and now the official cast for the show has been announced. So, here are the actors that will help bring The Mandalorian to life.

Pedro Pascal

As you may have seen about a month ago I wrote a post highlighting my excitement that Narcos actor Pedro Pascal was set to play the lead in The Mandalorian. Of course, it was all but confirmed but now that LucasFilm has announced the cast it’s official. He will be the man beneath the Mandalorian mask.

Is the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Too Lackadaisical For Comfort?

I’ve watched a lot of trailers in my time. Some have been unforgettably awesome. Some have been downright forgettable. One of the best trailers I have ever laid my eyes on, however, was the Avengers: Infinity War teaser. It was on another level of epic. I have watched that trailer at least twenty times and every time I have ever seen I am covered in chills and utterly blown away by the trailer’s amazing tone. It presented the clear idea that Infinity War would be the climactic movie that we had been waiting six years for and I had no doubt that it was going to be the franchise’s most enjoyable installment. And it was.

Last Friday when the Avengers: Endgame dropped I screamed. I was that excited. For months I had waited and waited, hoping that at least the title would be dropped, and yet Marvel didn’t give us anything. Rumors kept appearing that the trailer was coming but as the weeks went by and the rumors continued turning up false I started not to care anymore.

When the trailer arrived I watched it with a wide-eyed carefulness, clinging to every word, every shot with the passion of someone desperate to get information from the new movie. To get a glimpse of what to expect. At the end of the two minutes, however, I found myself flabbergasted by how underwhelming the trailer turned out to be. I began to think that it was a teaser for the real trailer but then when I discovered that it was the official trailer I was at a loss of words.

‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’: A Blu-Ray Review

I love good movies. Good movies can turn a dreary day into a wonderful day. Good movies expand the mind and make you think. Good movies can change the way you perceive things or send an impactful message that you can retain for your own personal life. And good movies are just plain fun to watch. Mission: Impossible-Fallout is more than a good movie. It’s a GREAT movie. One of the best I’ve ever seen. And so imagine my excitement when I finally got to own it last Tuesday on Blu-Ray. I couldn’t wait to revisit all of my favorite scenes and be reminded why I love the movie so much. Since obtaining it a week ago I have watched it every evening because I just can’t seem to get enough of it. But most of the times when you get a movie the behind-the-scenes features are subpar and even, at times, highly underwhelming. Mission: Impossible-Fallout is the exact opposite!

This film is not only a blast to watch but the behind-the-scenes features are utterly phenomenal as well. In fact, I haven’t even tipped the iceberg of the featurettes yet, that’s how incredible.

The Blu-Ray I got was the Steelbook version which you can only find at Best Buy. It comes with three disks; one regular disc, a Blu-Ray disc which contains not only the film but three! different commentaries (have you ever heard of three commentaries for one movie?!) and there is, of course, a disc which consists of all of the behind-the-scenes featurettes. And, don’t forget, it comes with a Digital code as well so you can take this movie anywhere with you, whether you’re on a long flight or having a cross-country road trip.

I’ve gotten a lot of DVDs in my time and up to this point my favorite behind-the-scenes featurettes has belonged to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (those featurettes were AMAZING) and The Force Awakens (which is also incredible.) I never thought there would be another movie that could join these two films’ ranks in the Blu-Ray department but I’m very glad to say Mission: Impossible-Fallout did not disappoint in the slightest.

How would I rank this Blu-Ray? 100 out of a 100 and 5 out of 5 stars. It’s fantastic just like the movie and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed this film. It’s a definite must-have.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

The Monsters Are Here in the New Trailer for ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’

It’s a busy month for next year’s biggest blockbusters as the studios start preparing us for 2019. And now after Marvel excited us with trailers for Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame it seems that Warner Bros. wants to get into the game by releasing a new trailer for its monstrous second installment in the Godzilla series. Here it is.

I watched Godzilla four years ago in the movie theaters. I didn’t enjoy it, which was a bummer considering that I was excited to see it. I was hoping that maybe this sequel would make me feel differently.

This trailer was compelling at first and for the most part, it’s a decent trailer with plenty of potentials but the trailer lost me after I saw actor Thomas Middleditch in the film. There’s nothing particularly wrong with him as an actor but I just can’t unsee him as the VERIZON guy. And because of that I probably will not go and watch this movie. It may turn out to be one of the greatest blockbusters of the year but because the VERIZON guy is in it…I just can’t do it.

How did you feel about this trailer? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

‘Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures’ Continues To Impress With Its Latest Shorts

Disney released a new animated series focusing on some of the most iconic Star Wars characters and their most memorable moments and five more entries in the series have arrived. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

Chewie vs. Holochess-Let the Wookie Win

I liked this short but I didn’t love it. Chewbacca is, more than anything, a very nice character but if you’ve never watched Star Wars before this short makes it seem like he’s mean. I don’t know if I exactly that.

Chewie can have his moments but he’s nowhere near as ferocious as this short makes him seem.

Breathe, Just Breathe, the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Just Dropped!

Remember the other day when I posted about a rumor that the Avengers 4 trailer was going to drop on Wednesday and then it didn’t? Well, I did share with you all that there were also rumors that it would drop today on this glorious Friday but, of course, they were merely that; rumors. Well, it seems that finally the rumors have come true and the Avengers (Endgame) trailer is here. So, hold yourself together, take a deep breath, here it is.

Okay, okay, okay. Marvel is awesome and this is why. They gave us a teaser and yes, it was a teaser. They know we are clinging to every word, every shot, so they gave us abso-lute-ly nothing! I love it! But, because there is legitimate footage before me, here are the five things that stood out to me the most in the trailer.

1. Tony Stark Is In a Desperate Situation

Iron Man is in desperate need of aid as he floats through space deprived of food and water. Tony obviously feels that his end is imminent, reminding us of the direness of the situation that we were left with at the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War. He’s seen recording a message to Pepper just in case she somehow gets it, sticking to the theme that has remained throughout the franchise of Tony’s immense love for her.
