WHAT'S ON THE HORIZON?

By Corey Floyd
Over the past few weeks, we have been bombarded with movie trailers. There is no doubt that each of them will be rolling in dough, but it makes me think well what’s next? I know there’s no trailer for it yet but I know it’s coming. After this, you will too. If you don’t know what’s going on in our cover photo let me fill you in. These are just a few of the new faces in the next Kingsman movie. Halle Berry, Channing Tatum, and recent recipient of a star on the walk of fame Jeff Bridges. They gave us a teaser trailer yesterday if you haven’t seen it yet https://youtu.be/93LSJWrL8DY there ya go. No idea what the story is but i do know these three stars are part of an American group called the Statesman. I really enjoyed the first movie I’m excited to see what next.

Back in 2013, Guillermo Del Toro gave us a simple childhood fantasy of giant robots fighting giant monsters and looking cool while doing it in Pacific Rim. It’s been four years and in 2018 it be back. The film is called Pacific Rim: Uprising. Del Toro wrote and produced but will not be directing. Steven DeKnight will be directing. This will be his first theatrical outing as a director. But his career in television does give me confidence. He has been an executive producer on Smallville, Dollhouse (which was criminally underrated), and a season a Netflix’s Daredevil. Now Charlie Hunnam will not be returning but we will have John Boyega (Star Wars 7&*8) and Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad) as main characters. I think as long as we have more badass robots fighting more giant monsters everything will be ok. 

Last but not Tomb Raider. A few years ago a reboot to the Tomb Raider game franchise landed giving us a younger Croft and a grittier world. Needless to say, it was a hit. After putting out 2 hit games the movie studios started to think “hey a reboot could work here too”. Our new Lara Croft is being played by Alicia Vikander. This 2016 Academy Award winner will be playing the lead.First time I saw her was in Ex- Machina as Ava and I loved her in the man from U.N.C.L.E. What worries me more than anything is the director and writer. Director Roar Uthaug does not have many movies under his belt. His only successful I heard of is The Wave it had a budget of 6.1 million and grossed 11.5 so I guess that’s good, it also holds an 83% on Rotten Tomatoes so maybe he has the skill. The writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet only has one credited piece known and it was a short film. Meanwhile, they have been hired to write several big name productions in the future such as Gotham City Sirens, Dungeons and Dragons (eyes roll),  Sherlock Holmes 3 and M.A.S.K, not the green CGI mask I mean

. I Think I just lost confidence in video game movies again. But you never know then again remember the G.I JOE movies.

Valerian and the city of 1000 planets(A Salty Review)

By Corey Floyd This summer we have been hit with a lot of movies as usual. But one of them I had so many questions about. This movie was Valerian. It’s based off a graphic novel. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson the mind behind The Fifth Element, Taken series and Transporter series. With a stellar trailer with beautiful visuals, you would think this was a cinematic slam dunk right?   While this film is very heavy with beautiful CGI visuals that tell a narrative without words when the main actors step they drag this film from the depths of space to a crappy SYFY movie. Our main character  Major Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan. Most people should remember him from The Amazing Spider Man 2 as Harry Osborn and Andrew Detmer from the hit film Chronicle. His co star is Cara Delevingne. She was the woman who played the Enchantress in the universally panned but financially successful Suicide Squad. I have a few problems with these two that affect this movie in a big way. Despit…

Not a Single Potato Chip was Eaten! Thoughts on The Netflix Death Note Adaptation.

By Luiggi Cavanna
Let me start with that this is not so much as review but more of comparison between the Netflix original and it’s source material. For a review go check out our local movie critic, Corey Floyd, he wrote an insightful review on this movie. Now let’s get on with this train wreck.
Two will go in just one will come out... LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!
I’m going to say this, if you like the manga/anime, you are going to HATE this movie! This is coming from a guy that wrote a blog about how we should give the live action adaptation a chance and that we shouldn’t hate before it comes out. Well it is out now, so we can hate on it.
L: “Man this movie is ASS!”
Ok! Let's start dissecting this ugly specimen by comparing the characters of the movie with their anime counterparts. What better place to start than with the main protagonist Light!
I’m going to need a drink….. And I don’t drink!!
Oh boy this is going to be something! The Light from the source material was an incredibly smar…
