Creed, a spinoff franchise from the beloved Rocky films, came out three years ago. It focused on a new boxer, Apollo’s son, Creed, and his rise to boxing champion as he was trained by none other than Sylvester Stallone’s ailing Rocky Balboa. I watched the movie and for the most part it was a decent film that possessed a lot of heart and made for a pretty good boxing movie. Now Michael B. Jordan after his stellar performance as Erik Killmonger in Black Panther returns to the role of Creed this November with a new film and the trailer for it just recently dropped. Here it is.
At first I was a little bored with the trailer but as soon Kendrick Lamar’s famous song, “DNA” started building up the trailer got better and better without, thankfully, revealing too much from the film. We get tantalizing shots of Creed preparing for a new opponent, moments with Rocky, Tessa Thompson being the doting wife of Creed, and then the end of the trailer was the knockout punch as we got to see who Creed’s next opponent is going to be. Drago, the Russian boxer who killed Apollo, I guess has a son who’s going to face off against Creed and that seems very exciting indeed.
It’s a showdown of the ages. I don’t get excited for a lot of movies outside of Marvel and Star Wars films but I have to admit, this movie actually looks good. 🙂
Here’s the poster.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day.
When George Lucas created Star Wars all those years ago he wasn’t exactly catering the film to adults. He was making a fantasy epic for children and it just so happened to be one of the greatest movies ever made that resonated with people of all ages. As the years have gone by some of the Star Wars films have continued to cater mostly towards the younger people of the world while some of the franchise’s installments have been a little more adult than others. So which Star Wars films do I think are the most kid-friendly? That’s what I’m here to list for you and I hope you enjoy. 🙂
10. Revenge of the Sith
The prequel trilogy might’ve produced some awful Star Wars movies but Revenge of the Sith definitely feels quite climactic and it doesn’t shrug away from being a dire film. We see the Jedi slaughtered, younglings and all, which could be VERY frightening for a child. We see General Grievous shot to the point of explosion. Padme is killed…by her husband! Palpatine’s face is enough to dissuade any child from wanting to see this movie. And then Anakin getting his limbs cut off and nearly burned alive? All of these points are blaring reasons why this is the least kid-friendly Star Wars movie. I mean, I still wince whenever I watch Anakin getting burnt to a crisp. This is definitely catered to an older audience.
Oh my goodness y’all! I’ve seen Solo: A Star Wars Story and I can honestly say it was one of the best movie experiences of my life. Today was my magnificent 20th birthday and what’s a better way to celebrate a fantastic personal milestone like that than watching a brand new Star Wars movie! And boy was this a Star Wars movie. This film literally had its grip on me from the first second to the last second because it seriously was THAT awesome. For the next week I’m going to unload all of my feelings about this movie in a series of posts focusing specifically on different elements of the film so I won’t go into too much detail about it but I can honestly it was one of the greatest movie surprises of my entire life.
I walked out of that movie theater practically glowing with happiness. In fact, as I write this I’m still beaming with joy because the film truly was that special.
And then as I was exiting the movie theater with my family I saw this amazing movie display for Ocean’s 8 that I absolutely couldn’t resist. It’s awesome being a woman because I fit right in with the rest of this awesome crew…and isn’t that an amazing crew of calculated thieves? I totally want in. 🙂
Oh my goodness! I absolutely can’t express to you in words how fantastic of a time I had but I can honestly say that I’m already counting down the days until I can own Solo on DVD. If you haven’t seen this movie because the slow box-office or the mediocre reviews have dissuaded you from wanting to see it I really hope this post changes your mind because it honestly is a film worth watching, literally from beginning to end.
I thank you for reading and I can’t wait to tell you all of my opinions of the movie in my upcoming posts. Have a great day and May the force be with you.
Last night after watching the premiere of American Ninja Warrior I was bored and desperate for a new movie to watch and so I went browsing on Netflix and I ultimately came across two Netflix Original Movies that were not only really fun to watch but actually very entertaining as well. So for all of you fellow Netflix subscribers and movie lovers I’m here to provide you spoiler-free reviews on these two original films.
True Memoirs of an International Assassin
If you love action movies and you love the comedian, Kevin James, this is a film worth watching for so many reasons. One, it’s got humor which is always a plus. Secondly, it’s surprisingly enjoyable if you’re just bored and needing a decent movie to satiate the new movie thirst. And three, it keeps you on your toes from beginning to end.
Kevin James’ character, Sam, is an aspiring author who writes a fictional story about an assassin and his top secret missions but when his publisher takes his story and spruces up the tale by tweaking the title and calling it “True” Memoirs of an International Assassin rather than its original title (Memoirs of an International Assassin) a lot of trouble and unwanted attention comes Sam’s way and he partakes in a non-stop adventure that’s truly exciting from beginning to end.
It’s also an entirely family-friendly movie with the exception of a bit of cursing and some violence but besides that there’s nothing inappropriate about this film whatsoever which is always refreshing. What would I give the movie, you might ask? I’d give 3.5 out of 5 stars and 84 out of a 100. It wasn’t the greatest action movie I’ve ever seen but it was very, very enjoyable indeed. Definitely take a look at it if you ever get the chance.
Every few years there’s a new Mission: Impossible movie to enjoy and this summer’s sixth entry into the spy thriller franchise looks to be the most action-packed installment yet. Here’s the trailer.
I saw Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation in the movie theaters three years ago and it was positively awesome. This film seems to have taken that sense of exhilarating action to the next level as this trailer contains nonstop action throughout its two minute and thirty-three second run time and that is super exciting. It’s summer time and that means it’s blockbuster season and who doesn’t love thrilling blockbusters? I know I do.
I also like that this trailer provided a better insight into the new characters such as Henry Cavill’s CIA agent, August Walker, who is supposedly the main villain in this film. (Ha! That evil Superman theory is going to come true after all. Lol.)
And it seems that the stakes are kicked up yet another notch as Ethan Hunt’s arch nemesis, Solomon Lane, returns to enact his revenge. *rubbing my hands* Exciting.
All in all, this was a great trailer and now I’m beyond excited to see this film. Especially in IMAX. It’s going to be 100% amazing.
Here’s the official poster for the movie and I love it. It perfectly fits the tone of the movie and it’s just a well configured layout of a poster. It actually may be my favorite poster of the franchise so far which is definitely a good sign for the movie. Did I mention I can’t wait to see this film? 🙂
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
So I was just roaming through the internet yesterday when I stumbled across this incredible poster that was brought out in anticipation for The Avengers in 2012. At first I was just looking at it in bewilderment as I tried to figure out what it was and then, with a sharp intake of breath, I realized that it was displaying tons and tons of Marvel heroes all on one poster. I couldn’t believe it. Was I looking at a secret (but not that secret) road map to the entirety of the MCU? And the more I looked at it the more it seemed plausible. You see, here’s the poster.
On this poster there are all of the major heroes that are currently in the MCU (excluding the Guardians of the Galaxy) and so what does that mean for the future of Marvel? After Avengers 4 the next phase of the MCU will start and I have a feeling a number of these heroes will be making their first appearances in that phase. As I look at this poster here are some of the heroes I would love to see come to the MCU.
SHE-HULK (because that sounds like an awesome character.) MOON KNIGHT (who is Moon Knight? :)) D-MAN (I like his hat.) HELLCAT (that’s a cool superhero name.) JUSTICE (I like him already and I don’t even know who that is.) TRIATHLON (a superhero named Triathlon! Heh, sign me up.) STINGRAY (This sounds like an awesome superhero.) And there are so many more heroes I’m super excited about seeing on this poster but I can’t determine their names so I’ll just leave this list at that.
Of course, this just might be a poster celebrating years of Marvel awesomeness but if it is secretly hinting towards the future of the MCU we have a LOT more movies and characters to look forward to and that’s super exciting.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magnificent day.
It’s almost only two weeks until Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out (six days, if you count its premiere at the Cannes festival) and because it’s getting close to its world premiere I’m here to share with you with my favorite posters for the film and which one I like the most. Enjoy!
I like this poster because of its simplicity. You’ve got Han and Chewie standing in the center, the rising sun which seems to be a constant theme for some of these posters, and the Millennium Falcon flying in the sky with Tie Fighters in hot pursuit. This poster is starting to get me even more excited for this film.
I like that this poster is highlighting one of the main villains from the movie in Enfys Nest. Whether it’s a he or a she this villain has remained a mystery throughout the marketing process for this movie which makes this character even more interesting. It’s also interesting to see this character has its own poster which reveals that this will, indeed, be a major player in this film. I also like the juxtaposition of these two posters; with Solo’s poster having the rising sun in the background and Enfys’s being a setting sun. I wonder what this exactly means in the context of the movie. Thankfully I only have a little while to find out.
