The past has not been very kind to movies based off of video games. From Mario Bros. to Tomb Raider, there have been some really disappointing efforts made by Hollywood in creating feature films in which all of the material is essentially right in front of them. Enter Assassin’s Creed. A game that has become very popular and has spawned 20 different versions and expansions. Now it looks to break the video game movie cruse. But will it work? It certainly looks like it. Check out the first trailer for Assassin’s Creed after the jump. Read More→
When Captain America: Civil War was first announced, a lot of people were excited but skeptical. Many, myself included, wondered if this would really be a Captain America film. As they started announcing more and more of the cast, it seemed that it was turning into “Avengers 2.5,” and I worried that it would be impossible to balance something like 20 characters well enough to make a coherent film. No one wants another Amazing Spider-Man 2 on our hands.
Well, after a lot of both anxious and excited anticipation, the culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe so far is finally here. And damn, is it good.
Just days after getting The Force Awakens on DVD, LucasFilm has decided to immediately move on to their next film, Rogue One. Earlier this morning the first teaser trailer was released on Good Morning America and it’s most definitely worth your time to watch. Check out the teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after the jump.
Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice is undoubtedly the most anticipated film to drop yet in 2016 (sorry Deadpool) — but unlike the aforementioned Ryan Reynolds flick, this tentpole film not only failed to live up to the hype, it downright disappointed me. And I love Batman. The film has been ravaged by critics, and rightfully so because it’s not very good — but I don’t think it’s the worst superhero movie ever made. But with that said, I think it’s right to assume the DC Universe is off to a rough start as they seek to match the success of Marvel and the many Avengers.
Here’s something I never thought I’d say about a war movie: Well that was fun! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot manages to make an enjoyable war movie with actual relatable characters and without sanitizing the war zone past the point of recognition.
