‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Has a Teaser Trailer!

I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I mean I can’t tell you the names of every single side character or fascinating creature in the movies but I have seen every single film and I have loved them all. When Harry Potter was officially over it was a little bittersweet considering that I had practically grown up with the movies but now, with this Fantastic Beasts series the Wizarding World is not gone and I’m definitely pleased about that.

Now I watched Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them at home last year and I did not like it at all. At first I did, considering that the movie was taking place in a different time, a different location than that of Hogwarts, and followed the stories of adults this time around rather than children and teenagers but it soon lost its magic (no pun intended) and fell flat very quickly. I disliked the movie so much I actually didn’t even finish it. And another thing that kept annoying me were the Beasts. Every rare beast was a giant bird creature. The imagination and creativity for the beasts was so lacking that I wanted to scream at times. And the CGI was pretty lackluster. All in all, it wasn’t a great debut to the new franchise.

It fell under The Phantom Menace effect because the Fantastic Beasts series is, essentially, a prequel and its debut film wasn’t nearly as good as it could’ve been.

Now it’s time for the Fantastic Beasts sequel to avenge itself and I believe it’s on its way to achieving that goal with this first teaser. Check it out:

The first thing that caught my attention was Hogwarts. Hogwarts is such a staple in the Wizarding World. It’s like seeing the Millenium Falcon in a Star Wars trailer. You’re going to immediately get excited.

Secondly, this movie will introduce a young Dumbledore which is AWESOME! Dumbledore was such a great wizard and to see him have more of a role as we get to know him in his younger years is even greater.

Third, it’s an exciting teaser. The music could’ve definitely been better but I’m happy to see this teaser caught some of that magical Harry Potter essence into its trailer with an, of course, more mature aspect as well.

Oh, and the action looked pretty enticing. The action in the first Fantastic Beasts was LAME and I’m glad to see that it doesn’t look that’ll be the case this time around.

I also like the villain more this time around.

Johnny Depp is known for playing strange characters and I know he will deliver as the villain of this new movie. In fact, I’m kind of excited to see the man who brought the dastardly Jack Sparrow to life play a wizard. That’ll be very fun to observe.

This series is undoubtedly much different than the Harry Potter series was and, if done correctly, could truly become something worth getting excited for. I love anything that’s part of the Harry Potter world so I’m hoping this movie will not disappoint and will actually be very enjoyable.

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

The Reason Why I’m Not Excited for ‘Ready Player One’

I love Steven Spielberg movies from Jaws to Jurassic Park and Gremlins, etc. His films have a special magic to them that helped turn me into such a movie fan to this day. Now he has a new installment in his long list of movie credits, Ready Player One, which is coming out this Friday but instead of feeling excitement to see it I’m just waiting for it to pass on. This is why.

MV5BOTQxMTI0MjczNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMTI0MjQxNTM@._V1_SX1777_CR0,0,1777,744_AL_.jpg

I saw the movie teaser for the first time when I went to watch Thor: Ragnarok and I was blown away. It looked like such an incredible film that I would definitely want to see. But then, when I went to see The Last Jedi, I saw the full-length trailer and it didn’t excite me as much as it had previously.

Now over the past couple of weeks my anticipation for this movie has dwindled less and less and now, as it stands, I would rather watch Pacific Rim: Uprising before it, which is kind of a shame considering the poor reviews the sci-fi film has garnered. (I love Transformers movies though so I would actually probably like Pacific Rim: Uprising despite what the critics are saying.)

MV5BYWQyYWZmZDgtNWQ0Zi00MTY1LThjNzQtNDUxMWRkNDA0NDUzXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyODY1OTYxOTA@._V1_.jpg

Now, there’s nothing particularly wrong with this movie. The story looks interesting and it looks like it’ll be supreme eye candy in IMAX but I guess I’m discouraged from seeing this film because there’s too much publicity around it. In every tv spot for the film I see something new, a new twist in the plot or a new character, and when a movie is really good it doesn’t have to constantly hammer you with publicity to make you excited for the film.

Great movies like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War give you enough tantalizing imagery that’ll make you want to see the film without conveying any spoilers in the slightest. Now, I hope Ready Player One will do well at the box office compared to its past two IMAX predecessors (Tomb Raider and Pacific Rim: Uprising) but I won’t be one of those adding to its box office run.

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

My Top Three Favorite ‘Harry Potter’ Films

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was one of the first films I saw as a child and it dazzled me. The Baselisk, Voldemort, the Quidditch match, it was a fantasy world unlike anything I’d ever seen before. And the main characters were children, something you don’t see a lot in movies as good as Harry Potter! In fact, for a while, I loved the Harry Potter franchise more than Star Wars, until I got a little older and Star Wars became better and better while the Harry Potter films started becoming a little boring in comparison. Recently I’ve watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, a movie I’ve seen over a dozen times (I highly enjoyed it) and so today I would like to share with you my three favorite Harry Potter films. Enjoy!

1. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

This is the Harry Potter movie I’ve watched the most (because I owned it as a child) and it always made me so happy every time I watched it. The flying car took my imagination to other places, I loved the screaming plant thingies (I forgot what they’re called,) the ghost girl used to always make me laugh because she was so perfectly weird, and who doesn’t love the scene with all of the spiders? Brilliant. This movie will always have a special place in my heart because it was one of the first films I was introduced to as a baby girl.

2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

I’ve only seen this movie, I’d say, four of five times and while it isn’t one of the Harry Potter films I most familiar with this is hands down the scariest installment of them all because it’s the movie where Voldemort comes back. *shudder* I really don’t like Voldemort. He’s so scary.

It’s also a very good movie as well. I love the tournament, I love the dragons and the frightening mermaids, and like I said before, the end of the film puts the icing on the cake as Voldemort is brought back to life.

3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

This is my favorite installment of the franchise and, as a child, was the scariest installment as well. I remember being taken to the movies at six-years-old to go see this film. It was definitely a frightening experience. I’m going to tell you right now, I’m a huge scaredy-cat. I do not like scary movies, especially when I was little, and the third Harry Potter was part fantasy/horror film for me at that young age. I still remember covering my eyes several times as I watched it in the movie theaters and can you blame me? This movie’s got a scary (but no so scary) black dog/Sirius Black, Dementors, the most horrifying creation ever, and werewolves! I was terrified.

Now as an adult I can watch it without a hint of fear but I still remember the horror I felt watching this movie as a baby. It’s one of the reasons, however, that I like the movie so much. Part of the reason why the Harry Potter franchise is so enjoyable is that horror factor but the movies are really good as well.

My favorite part of the third Harry Potter is when Harry and Hermione have to go back in time to save Sirius Black from a terrible fate. It’s such an incredible portion of the film and it really makes the movie enjoyable. It’s also something I’ve never seen since then in a movie, making it extra special. This film has so many incredible layers and at a whopping two hours and twenty-two minutes this movie definitely provides plenty of entertainment.

Well, these are the three Harry Potter films that have always made me either happy or terrified (in a good way) and helped turn me into a Harry Potter fan. And with John Williams (Star Wars) making the iconic musical theme I’m not surprised I love these movies so much. He is truly a legendary composer and I’m so glad he’s still alive so he can continue creating fabulous music.

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

 

The Trailer for Ocean’s 8 Is Here

I’m not a huge fan of all-female led movies because usually they aren’t the type of movies I want to see so when I heard they were going to make an Ocean’s film with an entirely female cast I was a little skeptical but after seeing this trailer I’m definitely not anymore. Check it out.

So, judging from this trailer, this movie is literally going off of the same formula as the other Ocean films and I like that. I can honestly say I’m excited to see this film and that’s always a good thing. Besides, any movie with Cate Blanchett in it has my attention.

I hope you enjoyed this trailer and I thank you for reading. Have a wonderful day.

Marvel vs. DC: Whose Outfits Are Better?

Marvel Studios and the DC Extended Universe have taken the superhero world by storm with their incredible films that have generated billions upon billions of dollars and while the superheroes that have helmed these films are usually really enjoyable and easy to get behind sometimes their incredible outfits help make them that much cooler. And so, because the DC Universe has only six major superheroes in their roster so far I’m going to compare their suits with six of Marvel’s best outfitted heroes. Enjoy!

Superman vs. Doctor Strange

MV5BMjMwMTY3NTM3NF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNjM1MzE2OQ@@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,1503,1000_AL_ (1)

Superman’s outfit is basically the classic design but what makes this suit stand out are the metallic accents to the waist area. It makes the suit look alien and it provides a slightly epic feel to the overall outfit. Now I’ve never been a huge fan of Superman because of his suit; the red cape just never appealed to me, but I will admit that Henry Cavill wears it well and makes it not look as corny as it used to.

MV5BMjE5NDc5NzUwNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDM3MDM2NzE@._V1_

Doctor Strange’s outfit is also highly inspired by the original design from the comics and that’s why it’s perfect. The high collared red cloak provides an impeccable sorcerer sort of look and the dark blue robes and several belts also make him look different in a very good way. There is no doubt who I think wins this round.

Marvel: 1 point

My Ranking of the DCEU Movies

For the past four years the DC Universe has come out with five films featuring their incredible superheroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, etc. and unfortunately until this year there hasn’t been a lot of praise surrounding these superhero flicks. Now I’ve seen nearly all of them and so I’m going to tell you how I rank these five movies. Enjoy!

5. Suicide Squad

I didn’t watch this movie but I heard it was horrendous. Now I usually like to make my own opinion on a movie but this film did not entice me at all. I mean the name is off-putting enough. And then you’ve got all of these terribly evil-looking characters. I just couldn’t get myself to watch this movie and that’s why this is clearly the worst DCEU movie made so far.

4. Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

MV5BMzJiNjg5NGYtMTRkMS00N2FlLThmZmItZDQxYWIxZmZiNTA1XkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjUwNzk3NDc@._V1_.jpg

I was lucky. When I watched Batman vs. Superman for the first time I watched the extended edition, which is surprisingly very enjoyable. Zack Snyder’s movie making is very serious and rather epic, which I expect when I think about the likes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and so forth. The story was interesting, the dialogue was compelling, the music is really good, and the final battle between these three heroes and Doomsday was quite awesome! The only reason why I’m not placing this movie higher on my list is because it was the extended version that I enjoyed. The actual theatrical cut is terribly inconsistent, the story is jumping all over the place, and it’s really poor movie making. Because of that this movie is my least favorite DCEU film that I have seen.
