The Final Deadpool 2 Trailer Seals The Deal. Take That, Suicide Squad.

The Final Deadpool 2 Trailer Seals The Deal. Take That, Suicide Squad.

If we take what we see in the final Deadpool 2 trailer as a given, it looks like Ryan Reynolds, Marvel and Fox have done what DC’s Suicide Squad attempted to do. But then again, Suicide Squad’s trailers for some of the best produced EVER. So, it might not be a slam dunk. But if Team Deadpool can carry over what they accomplished in the first movie, it’s a good bet that this movie is going to be one hell of a fun ride. Deadpool 2 hits theatres May 2nd.

Holy Sh*t! It’s Really Venom!!

Holy Sh*t! It’s Really Venom!!

Looks like Sony really is dipping their toes gingerly back into the superhero movie business. They experienced a little success with Spider-man Homecoming (thanks to Marvel), now they’re trying to build on that success with the first of a series of Spider-man spin-offs, Venom. Tom Hardy looks like he’s got a handle of the Eddie Brock character and the story seems dark and scary. The CG on the symbiote seems a little ‘iffy’, but the movie is six months out, so they still got a lot of work to do.  But I think this trailer has raised my expectation meter a few notches. So far so good, Sony.

The Equalizer 2: The Sequel We Didn’t Know We Wanted?

The Equalizer 2: The Sequel We Didn’t Know We Wanted?

I like the fact that older, more established actors like Liam Neeson and Denzel Washington are still pushing their action hero limits. Their recent crop of movies have been a pleasant surprise. Much like Neeson’s The Commuter, I had no real desire to see Denzel Washington’s cinematic reboot of The Equalizer. It felt like the continuing saga of movie studios scraping the bottom of the barrel to make money by repurposing older, obscure properties. I don’t know if it was low expectations, but that first Equalizer movie, as well as The Commuter, were very enjoyable. Nothing great about them, but they left me pretty satisfied by the end. So I’m trying to adjust my expectations for The Equalizer 2. After watching this first trailer, I can’t figure out if I’m underwhelmed by the content, or if I’m following the same expected path as the first movie. I guess I’ll find out July 22nd.

Marvel Cinematic Universe: 10 Years of Awesome!!

Marvel Cinematic Universe: 10 Years of Awesome!!

I remember as a kid wishing that somehow comic books could come to life and I could see them in TV and movies. Not the crappy stuff that was put out from time to time. But something well made that treated the source material as important. Even after my first viewing of Iron Man in 2008, I didn’t understand the scope of what Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios were doing. Ten years later, we’re a little more than a week away from the culmination of a decade of tethered movies. Avengers: Infinite Wars is billed as the first half of the finale to the first 3 phases of Marvel’s self-produced movies. This is a nice little vignette from Marvel.

Avengers: Infinite War drops on April 27th. It’s all been leading to this.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Amps Up the Awesome

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Amps Up the Awesome

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom already had my money. If you’ve got dinosaurs in your movie, you’ve got my $10. But this final trailer really amps up the story and effects to make it a ‘must see’ summer blockbuster. It drops in theaters June 22nd.

Netflix Is Bringing Bio-pict for Hip-Hop Legend Roxanna Shante

Netflix Is Bringing Bio-pict for Hip-Hop Legend Roxanna Shante

Wow. Shante is the last person I thought someone would do an autobiographical movie about. But come to think about it, in today’s climate, an uplifting movie about a female artist (at a time when rap didn’t really respect female artists) holding her own against the competition, being involved in one of the biggest rap battles of the early days, and coming out of it with a top-tier education is exactly what we need to see and know about. I can’t wait for this one.

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.

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.
