Has The Boat Sailed on the Slender Man?

I remember a few years ago when The Slender Man was the creepy monster of the moment. Now after a few documentaries and some youtube hoaxes, do we still care about the Slender Man? Check out the latest trailer.

This Year’s Christmas Marathon

This Year’s Christmas Marathon

The holiday tradition in the Kelley household is the cook our lunch and dinner meals together, and watch a marathon of holiday-themed movies and tv shows. We’re not into the regular crap like It’s A Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. Our tastes usually tends to swing toward the funny and unconventional. My entire playlist was about two days long, but here’s a highlighted short list of our viewing pleasure.

Blade Runner 2049 Is An Unexpected Modern Masterpiece of Filmmaking

Blade Runner 2049 Is An Unexpected Modern Masterpiece of Filmmaking

I wanted to go see Blade Runner 2049 on the opening weekend. But a lot of other stuff started getting in the way. After months or procrastination, I finally went into see it. And with less than a month to go, this became my movie of the year. Not only did this movie get everything right, but it got them right in all the right doses. It’s very rare when a sequel doesn’t outshine the original, but does something different which elevates itself and the original. You can understand this when you don’t need to see the original to know what’s going on. Watching Ryan Gosling journey down the rabbit wh0le was thrilling. I’ve always been one of those people who complained about his stoic acting. But in this movie, it’s necessary.

The First Details of X-Men: Dark Phoenix Are Coming

The First Details of X-Men: Dark Phoenix Are Coming

Well.. it’s that time again. Fox is working on their seventh (seventh?) X-Men film. This time we’re jumping forward to the 90’s and Jean Grey is getting her spotlight as The Phoenix. Being burned more time than not, I don’t know how I feel about X-Men: Dark Phoenix. That being said, of course, I’m going to see it. I’m a comic book nerd so it’s my duty to give money to the companies making an effort bring the X-Men to the big screen. I love this photo. It really conveys the feel of how beautiful and terrifying at the same time.

I don’t know what the hell this is. I don’t know what the hell it’s about. But I do know I’m gonna pay $10 to go see it.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer. I’m Speechless

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer. I’m Speechless

It must suck to be the folks who made Justice League getting all the criticism and then seeing Marvel slay their movie with a trailer. I understand they need to play catchup to Marvel’s lead, but there’s something about giving yourself time to build your universe to make the stakes for the characters more important. Justice League and Avengers Infinity War on the surface seem to pretty much be in the same space. But the audience has more invested in the Marvel characters because we’ve been on the journey for 10 years. There’s no connection to the DC movie characters, even though their trinity of Batman, Superman and  Wonder Woman are some of the most popular and well-known characters in pop culture. Looking at both trailers side by side, they could be two movies existing in the same story, but seeing characters like Thor, Captain American, Iron Man and even the newly added Spider-man has more weight with audiences because they’re existed with us for so long.
