FINALLY!!!!!

No Words Needed. For a second I thought Lionsgate forget they have a movie to promotes.

Lets talk about the trailer, first I thought it would be longer like 2:30 minutes no complains just saying. Donald Sutherland portrayal of President Snow is spot on, better that Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in my opinion. Katniss seems stronger in the movie than she does in the books which is great. That was one negative reaction from fans of the books, Katniss was “too whiny” in Mockingjay but have we all forgotten that she is a teenage girl. Aren’t all teenage girls whiny? Enough about the book back to the movie. Her reaction to see Peeta and knowing he’s alive, not what I was expected. When Katniss went to District 8, it looked just how I imagine it would be, so bad ass. EFFIE!!!!!!!! The movie got it so right with putting Effie in, I can’t wait to see how she adjust to life in District 13, something tells me she’s not going to like it that much. I read Mockingjay three times but it was long ago so my memory of it is a bit off, can someone please tell me what’s with the water. Characters I’m looking forward on seeing, Gale this is going to be the most of him we’ll be seeing on the big screen, and what the trailer shows we wont be disappointed. Cressida and President Coin, one thing I have to say is the make-up/Costume department hit it out the park with these two, from Cressida’s half-shaved head tattoo to President Coin’s hair, perfect. There is no word for the weapons, it’s just all done so well. I guess I did have a couple of words.

One question though when in the book will the part 1 ends? SPOILER ALERT, I think when they rescue Peeta and he attacks Katniss or When Finnick dies.

Let me know when you think it’ll end in the comments.

Trailer Frenzy (Take 2)

It seems like were getting more and more trailers than usual for movies we are dying to see, Transformers, X-Men Days of Future Past, Maleficent, The Fault in our Stars and some new one as well like Cinderella, Mockingjay and Interstellar. This are some of movie announcements that happened this week.

 

1. Cinderella

Earlier this week I wrote a post about fairy tales turning into live-action motion picture and recently Disney released a teaser trailer for Cinderella and I feel like I beat every one to it, even Disney. For more live-action fairy tales check out my post Fairy Tales are Forever. The trailer wasn’t anything to get excited about and I don’t think Disney that is why they released it. I think they release it so people know that a Cinderella movie is being made, isn’t that the purpose of a teaser trailer. The trailer isn’t much just the famous glass slipper and a butterfly. The shoe looks extremely uncomfortable and it wasn’t what I expected it to look like. The trailer has been getting mixed comments but I can’t wait until 2016.

 

2. Interstellar

We got our first official trailer of Christopher Nolan highly anticipated film Interstellar, and it’s the first movie trailer I’ve seen this year that gave me chills. We get a better look at what the movie -Interstellar- is all about, A space travel story about a group of astronaut trying to find an inhabitable planet to replace Earth because Earth is on the brink of extinction. It was written by Christopher and Johnathon Nolan and it based on the theories of Kip Throne. From Nolan’s previous movies I know we are going to have our minds blown by his visual effect and it’s definitely going to be his most visually stunning movie to date. Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughnhey, Jessica Chastian, Anne Hathaway, and Michael  Caine, among others stars so the acting is going to be phenomenal. Do I hear Oscar bells? Best Score, Best Cinematography, Best Director even, too early to tell but very promising.

 

3. X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past has released a lot of clip showcasing  their new and returning mutants such as Blink, QuickSliver Shadowcat, Mystique, Wolverine, Beast, Storm, Magento. My favorite is, all of them, each time I watch the trailers I hope that it doesn’t have to end. I’m on the edge with X-Men and I cant wait to see it.

 

5. Guardian of the Galaxy

Another Marvel movie made headline this week, when Guardian of the Galaxy release a second teaser trailer, I’ve only seen it once and I’m not completely sold on this movie as yet. I can tell that this movie is going to have a different tone and attitude than other Marvel’s movie, it’s more on the humorous side. The Guardians include Star-Lord, Groot, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and Drax the destroyer, the guardians are alien from the 31st century who travel back in time to enlist the help to battle the Baboon, an evil alien race that attempts to conquer Earth’s solar system. It stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Batista, Bradley Cooper(voice), Vin Diesel(voice), it’s not the best cast when you think of a superhero movie but we’ll see.

 

6. Superman vs. Batman

We got our first look at Ben Affleck as Batman this week and he looks awesome, on contrary to what people are saying. Affleck may not be the best Bruce Wayne or Batman but he’s sure going to be the most controversial and memorable. Ben Affleck is Batman people deal with it.  We also got a look of the batmobile, it all looks cool and I cant wait to see the final outcome. Keep in mind that this is a sequel to Man of Steel, it’s not a Batman/Dark Knight movie. I’m sorry I don’t have the picture.

 

7. Mockingjay

We got our first look at Mockingjay no just Julianne Moore as President Coin, which was pretty cool, she looked just like how I imagined Coin to be. We got some other stuff about Mockingjay but not trailer, just a poster teaser trailer part 1, which mean there is going to be more. I just really want the trailer to be release, it’s been long enough. I think the movie is in post-production t that’s why we haven’t seen anything, but I hope we’ll get our trailer soon.

 

So many movie announcement happened this week which one did you like the best?

-Have a good one.

Movie Update

Power Rangers remake!!!!

image

Its been a while since I posted about movie, sorry I’ve been reading a lot. But I heard there is going to be a Power Rangers remake. I didn’t read much into it but I think Michael Bay is directing so lets take a second for all the haters to voice there unwanted opinion…….

I literally was thinking there should do a remake of Power Rangers a couple weeks ago, the franchise is in need of a reboot. I know everyone is going to say-again-that Michael Bay is ruining there childhood, by destroying these awesome shows that we grew up with, but he’s not. I’m not going to lie the last Transformers movie that came out sucked, and I cant wait to see the new TMNT movie.
Have you ever thought that these re-make/re-boot movie isn’t for us but for the younger generation who don’t know about Transformers, TMNT, Power Rangers etc?

Another movie I want to talk about is Gone Girl. I already read the book so I know how it ended but not a lot of people was happy with the way it did end so the movie is going to have a alternative ending. I thought the movie was going to be a bit “Lifetimey” but the trailer proved me wrong. The Trailer is fantastic, and just so you know, Nick didn’t kill his wife isn’t that obvious, Come on people think a little. I cant wait to see this movie, for those who haven’t read the book, its going to take you on a crazy rollercoaster and its going to the same for those who have read the book.

I saw that there is going to be a Justice League movie, finally move over Avengers. I’m so sick of Marvel like every month a new marvel superhero movie comes out. Although I’m pumped up for X-Men Days of Future Past. Also a David and Goliath movie is in the works.

The last thing I want to say is where is my Mockingjay trailer??? I’m freaking out not being able to see a teaser trailer, and I have a question where does Mockingjay part 1 ends?

It feels like I’ve missed so much in the movie world these pass couple weeks. Which movie updates are you most excited about.?

Disappointment!!!

image

The MTV Movies Award just aired and I know by tomorrow everyone is going to be saying how awesome it was but was it really??
First Conan O’Brian monologue wasn’t funny I’m not a big O’Brian fan but come on, and after his monologue he basically disappear until the show was almost over.
Secondly, the winner were predictable. After years of watching the MTV Movie Award and many other award shows I found out you can predict who’s going to win by who’s in the audience. Tonight was no exception.
Lastly, WHERE THE HELL IS THE MOCKINGJAY TRAILER? By my all caps you can tell that I’m very, very, very, upset is the least to say. The only reason I watched the awards is to finally get a peck of mockingjay but no says Lionsgate you have to wait. The MTV Movie Awards was the best demographic for them to air the trailer with millions of teen watching. As I guessed first, they are probably going to release it at ComicCon which is in June hopefully they do it before then.

On to the positives. Tons of other trailers air during the show which kind of makes up for Mockingjay…well it doesn’t, I’m still disappointed.
First, The Fault in Our Stars exclusive Its a metaphor clip which air during the pre-show. It almost made me cry. What I loved the most about that clip, it showed how truthful the movie is going to remain to the book. It’s doesn’t seems like there are any big changes and with a story like that it needs no changes.

image

Second, The Amazing Spider 2 exclusive. OK I said it before I’m not a big marvels but the clip alone makes me want to watch the movie. I watched all the trailer but it never really drew me in until now, after you watch it you’ll see what I mean.
Thirdly, to all the TMNT fan out there you finally get a look at Splinter
will not a look more like a glimpse. Looks pretty cool don’t it.

Other trailers like Transcendence, Neighbors, 22 Jump Street aired.

And don’t forget about the performances from Rihanna, Eminem, Zedd, 21 Pilots, Elle Goudling.

Maybe I would have enjoyed the show more if I wasn’t so hang up on the Mockingjay trailer.

What did you liked most about the show? Where expecting the Mockingjay trailer like I was?

Announcement!!

Its 10:19pm as I write this post and I just read that there are rumor on the interwebs that the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 trailer will premiere on the MTV Movie Awards airing April 13, 2014. Ahhhh!!! I’m freaking out at the moment I can’t wait I hope there are true. 🙌🙋🙋🙌🙌🙋🙆🙋🙌.

While I’m here lets do a box office break down of the films being released today.

1. Oculus

A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon. This is a horror film I think its the first horror flick release this year. I’m not a fan of horror films because I’m get scared really quickly, yeah yeah I know I’m a scary-pants. ( haha no one say that anymore).
But if your looking for a good scare you should check this movie out.

2.Rio 2

In Rio 2, we find Blu, Jewel and their three kids living the perfect domesticated life in that magical city. When Jewel decides the kids need to learn to live like real birds, she insists the family venture into the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in with his new neighbors, he worries he may lose Jewel and the kids to the call of the wild. OK so to me no sequel is as good as it predecessor when it comes to animations that it example Despicable Me 2. The trailer looks OK I would probably take my little brother who is 4 to go see it but I’m going to watch Captain America.

On the topic of Captain America it dominated the box office last weekend and I don’t think these two movie can knock it from the number 1 spot. We’ll see how it plays out.

Have a great weekend!!!!

Trailer Frenzy

In the last couple week some trailers have been release and every putting in their ¢2 in and its my turn. But before… the new Captain America movie came out this week and I’m not a big marvels fan (never seen Avengers) but I want to watch it so bad. I’m going to watch the first Captain America and then go see the new one next weekend. I’m not going to do a review because I think there’s enough on the interwebs. OK I’m rambling now here are 5 trailers I’ve been dying to talk about.

1. Lucy (August 8)

You may or may not heard of this movie, this trailer was release April 4, that was 4 days ago and it has almost 8 million hits YouTube which is pretty cool. The movie centers on a woman forced to become a drug mule. But the drug instead goes into her system, transforming her into an ass-kicking machine. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind and can’t feel pain and other discomforts. It stars Scarlet Johansson as Lucy and Morgan Freeman this movie looks like its going to be badass. Its being compared to Limitless but apart from the “you use 10% of your brain premise” it stands on its own. You have to watch the trailer to see what I mean. This movie isn’t getting a lot of advertisements and its being release the same day as TMNT which is not good.

2. TMNT (August 8)

First of all, I love Michael Bay I don’t know why everyone keeps bashing him and his movies still makes millions and I know TMNT will be no exception. The trailer has been out for a week and most of what I’ve read have been negative. Why Meghan Fox is April? Why the turtles look like crap? Michael Bay (who just produced the movie) ruined my childhood once again. The turtles weren’t created. Where’s Splinter?
I get it Meghan Fox isn’t the best actress but give it a rest. The turtles, to me looks cool and realistic for CGI but they don’t look like teenagers. And the how they were not created BS I get I don’t why they changed something so big but we all have to wait until the movie to see how it plays out. The trailer is only 1 minute and 30 seconds there is only so much they can show without ruining  the movie.

3. Hercules (July 25)

Following The Legend of Hercules staring Kellan Lutz train wreck which came out earlier this year there is no way this film can disappoint with the expectations so low and by the looks of the trailer its not going to. I’m not the biggest fan of The Rock especially when I heard when he’s going to be Hercules but so far I like what I’m getting from the trailer. Most people don’t agree with The Rock ethnicity but I think that’s just pathetic.

4. Interstellar (November 7)

Although the teaser trailer have been out for 3 months and I’ve watched it a lot I still kind of don’t know what’s it about and I want to. From what I’ve read its about a group of astronaut/explorers that discover how to suppress the limitations on human space travel. Everyone is saying it going to the “Gravity” of 2014, its too early to say that but with Christopher Nolan directing and  Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain  staring its definitely won’t disappoint.

5. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

OK the trailer for Mockingjay isn’t out as yet. WHY!?!? I’m dying just to see a glimpse of the trailer. It probably premiere at ComiCon which is in June so we have to wait until then hopefully the teaser will be out before then.

OK there are many more trailers has been released which ones are you most excited for and the ones your dying to see??

Most Read Book to Movie Adaptions

I started this blog to write about movie adaptions but I haven’t really done that. I haven’t been reading a lot this year which sucks but I’m currently reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner. This is a list of books just five (5) that you should read before you watch the movie. (These are movie that haven’t been release as yet)

1. The Fault in Our Stars (June 6)

image

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.
Why you should read the book:
If you don’t read any of the books on this list I advice you to read this one. Its written by John Green – who is now my favourite author – an amazing YA writer. This book will have you laughing and crying at the same time. You’ll fall in love in with the characters and want nothing but happiness for main character Hazel. This book inspired me and taught me the moral that we should never take our life for granted.
I mostly love this book because it portrays REAL life as we know it. It does not necessarily have a happy ending, the characters do not ride off into the sunset, there is no “happily ever after.” Although is there happy endings in real life? Unfortunately, no. It shows the true, yet awful, colors of life. Truthfully dying is a side effect of living. In other words we live to die. This book will break your heart not by breaking it down but by building it up until it burst.

2. Mockingjay (November 21)

image

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.
Why you should read this book:
First of all if you saw this first two movies, but haven’t read the books that’s fine, you still can read the last one. It will explain a lot that wasn’t explain in the movies and you will won’t have to wait to see what happens to Peeta. The Hunger Games trilogy is darker than how the movies made them out to be and Mockingjay by far is the darkest. Katniss have to make decision that will shape the rebellion and as for Peeta he’s not the same as he was in the first book/movie. Let’s just say he’s not so fond of Katniss anymore. I can’t write anything without spoilers and I’m not going to because I don’t want to ruin the book so that’s all I’m going to say. Just read the book its the best.

3. Gone Girl (October 3)

image

I have this book for couple months now but I haven’t read I couldn’t find the time to, but its definitely next on my read list. Its about a married couple Nick and Amy they have the perfect life, they live in the perfect neighbourhood, everything seems perfect in their life. But on their fifth anniversary Amy disappears, now husband of the year Nick is under pressure  by the police and the media for his lies, deceit and inappropriate behavior, but is he really a killer? With his twin sister Margo at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. But if Nick didn’t do it, where is his wife?
Its not a YA novel but I like it and I hate suspend and/or drama. It has a big twist that I can’t say but that’s why I want to read it to see what happens and I know what happened to Amy. I know what’s going to happen and I still want to read the book so that should say something. All and all its going to be a great movie and a greater book  and the movie has Ben Affleck who I love.

4. The Mazing Runner (September 18)

image

I’m currently reading The Maze Runner and I’m half way through the book and I only been reading for the past two days. The books has 375 pages and I can’t put it down, its the first in a series of YA novels. “The Maze Runner” follows Thomas who wake up in a place called the Glade that exists inside a giant maze, populated by a group of teenager boys. All the boys when they arrived in the Box, their memories has been systematically erased and the only thing they can remember is their names, but Thomas remembers more but he cant seem put his memories together. Every 30 days they receive a newbie, but a day after Thomas arrive, they got a another newbie and this time its a girl (the first and only girl) and she has a message that changed everything. The group has to deal with power issues as well as how to escape the maze and why they were sent there to begin with. 

5. The Giver
 

image

The last book on the list is a book that I just heard about, the trailer premiered I think last week and it blow up my tl. So I Google the book, its a relatively old children’s book from 1993. From what I’ve read it about a boy named Jonas who lives in a utopian society and on his twelfth  birthday he has to chose a what he’s going to do for the rest of his life. He got chosen to be he Receiver of Memories and I stop reading because I didn’t want to ruin the book. So I know nothing about this book but I’m definitely going to read to see what the buzz is all about and if its that’s good. Its seems like this book that started the “dystopian society” craze so I’m really curious about it. I don’t really read books that are not from the 21 century but I’ll give this one a pass.

Noticeable Mentions
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth
2. Maleficent based an the Fairytale Sleeping Beauty.
3. Edge of Tomorrow 
4. Serena by Ron Rash
5. Fallen by Lauren Kate
6. Noah & Exodus inspired by the Bible
7. The Hobbit
