I once starred in a movie titled "Tomi's First Birthday" it was a straight to VHS production that received mix reviews. My parents loved it, my brother thought it was boring.

Netflix paid 6 Actors $397 Million dollars.

Netflix’s is expected to hit $14 Billion in spending on new content this year. Apple has even had to increase their spend on original Apple TV content to $5 Billion.

Let’s take a look at the Star Power $397 Million buys you.

Ben Affleck

$8 million for “Triple Frontier”

Ben Affleck has certainly proven himself a leading man. He hasn’t really done anything that I’ve been a big fan of in a long time, but, I did somewhat enjoy the movies he’s been in.

Gal Gadot

$20 million for “Red Notice”

Gal can do no wrong, her role selection is perfect, and I cannot wait to see her in the new Wonder Woman movie. I haven’t seen much on Red Notice but I’ll be sure to post the trailer when it drops.

Ryan Reynolds

$27 million for “Six Underground”
$20 million for “Red Notice”

This doesn’t surprise me – Reynolds has been heating up for some time now. We’ll likely see a few more Netflix’s and Ryan Reynolds collaborations in the near future, but until then, here’s a trailer for Six Underground (Out December 13th, 2019

Will Smith

$35 million for “Bright 2”

Will Smith is Will Smith, he’s an action star who tried tirelessly to win an oscars in serious roles. He went back to basic when he collaborated with Netflix on Bright, which, out of his last few movies, was probably the best. This is a trailer for the first bright.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson”

More than $20 million for “Red Notice”

It’s The Rock, he is a mega movie star, beloved by all, and I’m surprised it took Netflix’s this long to lock him down for a movie. The trailer for Red Notice isn’t out yet, but, Jungle Cruise is coming out soon and I’m looking forward to it.

Adam Sandler

$250 million for four movies

Sandler’s Netflix movies have been major critical misfires, but that didn’t stop the streamer from signing him for four more movies in 2017 after his initial deal. His 2015 Netflix movie “The Ridiculous Six” has a 0% Rotten Tomatoes critic score. Here is the trailer for his new movie.

The Definitive List of Space Movies You Need To Watch

Movies about space always spark my imagination, the idea of traversing the unknown, the notion of leaving the relative safety of my home, and being in an environment filled with the building blocks of life.

With that in mind, I have decided to put together a list of Space movies that always spark my imagination and leave me wanting more. The criteria for this list is simple, movies that have to do with space that have a realistic feel to them, they need to be based on some sort of science (Even if it’s impossible)

Interstellar (2014)

Apollo 13 (1995)

2001: A Spacetime Odyssey

Contact (1997)

True Story Tuesday: 5 Amazing Movies Based on Absolutely Incredible True Stories

Lion (2016)

Director: Garth Davis
Writers: Luke Davies (screenplay by)
Stars: Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara

Based on the seemingly impossible true story, the film followed the story of Saroo Brierley who found his way back to his biological mother from Tasmania, Australia to the bylanes of Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh with the help of Google Earth. A six-year-old Saroo gets adopted by an Australian couple after getting lost in Howrah and spending some time on the streets and orphanages.

Schindler’s List (1999)

Director: Steven Spielberg
Writers: Thomas Keneally (book), Steven Zaillian (screenplay)
Stars: Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Kingsley

One of Spielberg’s best films, even within a filmography of distinguished achievements, is based on the real life story of Oskar Schindler. A businessman during the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler, he sold off his last possessions to buy the freedom of 600-odd Jew prisoners. The film went on to win the top honours that year.

The Way Back (2010)

Director: Peter Weir
Writers: Keith R. Clarke (screenplay)
Stars: Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, Colin Farrell

With a star-studded cast including Ed Harris, Colin Farell, Saroise Ronan and Jim Sturgess, the film directed by Peter Weir traces the journey of a bunch of war prisoners who walked close to 4000 miles to win their freedom during World War II. Many suggested the harrowing nature of the movie makes it a difficult watch but the pay-off is immense.

October Sky (1999)

Director: Joe Johnston
Writers: Homer H. Hickam Jr. (book), Lewis Colick (screenplay)
Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper, Laura Dern

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, the film based on Sky of Stone by Homer Hickam, told the story of a young boy filled with wonder after seeing the launch of the Soviet satellite Sputnik.

Eddie The Eagle (2016)

Director: Dexter Fletcher
Writers: Sean Macaulay (screenplay), Simon Kelton (screenplay)
Stars: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Tom Costello

Based on the true life of British Ski-jumper Eddie Edwards, the film follows the underdog story template to the tee. However, a moving and sincere central performance by Taron Egerton ensures that even the cliches of this sports drama are heartfelt. The story involves a less-than-talented Eddie making it to the Winter Olympics through sheer perseverance.

The LEGO Movie 2 New Trailer may have just shed some light on Chris Pratt’s Next Role! Hint: I think you’ll “Dig” It

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part – Theatrical Release Date: February 8th, 2019

The much anticipated second instalment of The Lego Movie is slated for release on February 8th, 2019, even at my age I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and can’t wait for the second.

I’m sure everyone will be happy to know that Chris Pratt will be returning to the franchise, but this time, he’ll be voicing two characters! While watching the trailer something stood out! His second character (Rex Dangervest) he’s described as a; Galaxy Defending, Archeologist, Cowboy, and Raptor Trainer.

Reference and the Movie he was in:

Pratt played Star Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy
Pratt played Josh Faraday in Magnificent Seven
Pratt played Owen Grady the Raptor Trainer in both Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Pratt has yet to play an archeologist, he has, however, been rumoured to be heavily favoured by Disney to take on the iconic role of Indiana Jones!

Let’s Talk About Tom Cruise; Scientologist, Weirdo, and The Last True Mega Movie Star

I recently watched Tom Cruise in his latest blockbuster Mission Impossible: Fall Out and it dawned on me, due to his epic meltdown on the Oprah show, his non-wavering support of Scientology, and his very odd public divorce from Katie Holmes, we may have lost sight of how incredibly talented Tom Cruise really is. I would consider Tom as the last true mega movie star, his movies have stood the test of time, and have brought joy and entertainment to families for generations.

mission-impossible-fallout
Mission Impossible: Fall Out

He has stayed relevant since starting in the movie Endless Love (1981) and has been apart of some of the most memorable movies since then. In fact, a quick glance at his resume and you’ll see that Tom has made a movie almost every year since then, and the longest break he has taken in between movies (3 Years) came after his Golden Globe-winning performance in Jerry McGuire.

He has been nominated for 3 Academy Awards for his performances in Back on the Fourth of July (1989), Jerry Maguire (1996), and Mongolia (1999), sadly, he hasn’t won but his performances were masterful.

Jerry Maguire.jpg

At 56 years old it would appear Tom Cruise does not age, he looks the same as he did when he was piloting fighter jets as Maverick in Top Gun (1986). To put things in perspective, Alec Baldwin (Tom’s co-star in Mission Impossible: Fall Out) is 3 years older than Tom, not to stay anything negative about Alec but I think it’s safe that he hasn’t aged as well as our boy Tom.

I bring at age because at 56-year-old Tom Cruise is one of the few actors who actually does his own stunts! It’s an insanely impressive feat considering how easy it is for actors to just rely on CGI to make scenes look more intense. Below is a picture of Tom actually hanging from a helicopter for Mission Impossible: Fall Out (2018)

Mission Impossible Stunt.jpg

I understand that a lot of people will not publicly admit to being a Tom Cruise fan but based on his Box Office numbers will tell you that we’re all secretly Tom Cruise fans. You may not believe in his beliefs or approve of the way he handled his very public divorce but when it comes to acting Tom Cruise is legendary.

If you’re still unsure about whether or not you like Tom Cruise here is a list of nice things he’s done over the years;

  • He rescued a family from their burning sailboat.
  • He helped rescue a victim of a hit-and-run and paid her medical bills.
  • He personally arranged for Bill Hader to leave a set and get home to New York after an attempted bombing in Times Square.
  • He gave Kanye West advice on his fledgling comedy career but declined a role in Kanye’s HBO pilot.
  • He always takes his kid’s calls, even in the middle of a scene.

Mission Impossible: Fall Out was a wildly fun movie to watch, again, thinking about the fact that almost all the stunts were done by none other than Tom Cruise is enough to leave you mesmerized, but the story (A semi-sequel to the last Mission Impossible movie) is enjoyable and a pleasure to watch. The supporting cast is perfect, Henry Cavill was far better in this than in Justice League (2017) and Man of Steel (2013), and this movie reaffirmed my love of Simon Pegg in a supporting role. It’s a must see for everyone who enjoys actions movies!

Coming up after this post will be a list dedicated to a Tom Cruise Movie Marathon, an action-packed day, in honour of one of The Last True Mega Movie Stars.

Facts about Hit Movies That’ll Make You Seem Like a Hollywood Insider

William Goldman’s original script title for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid was The Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy. The names were reversed when Paul Newman took on the role of Butch.

Disney turned down the chance to make Back to the Future claiming the mother/son relationship was too risqué.

The idea for the poster for The Usual Suspects came before any script or story.

Paul Schrader wrote Taxi Driver in five days. It is rumoured he had a loaded gun by his desk for “inspiration and motivation”.

Like Facebook, Star Wars was originally prefixed by the definite article ‘The’. Much cleaner without it.

In 1994, during one famous lunch at Pixar, filmmakers John Lasseter, Pete Docter and Joe Ranft came up with ideas that would eventually become A Bug’s Life, Finding Nemo, Monster Inc. and Wall-E. We’ll have what they’re having.

Shark-Nemo.jpg

Paramount super producer Robert Towne was adamant he wanted Francis Ford Coppola to make The Godfather even though the director was uninterested in the project. Coppola acquiesced when he decided to make it a film about American capitalism and not “the mafia”.

Dan Akroyd’s original script for Ghostbusters was set in a future where Ghostbusters were everyday figures of society like paramedics and firemen.

In the Stephen King novella for The Shawshank Redemption, Morgan Freeman’s Red is described as a white Irishman. The script sees Red sarcastically quip, “Maybe it’s cause I’m Irish” as a nod to the change.

Among Patrick Bateman’s neighbours in the novel of American Psycho is one Tom Cruise

Stanley Kubrick would reportedly call Stephen King at 3am to ask him questions about The Shining. According to King, one famous exchange had the director ask the author, “Do you believe in God?”. When he replied in the affirmative Kubrick yelled “I knew it!” and slammed the phone down.

The-Shining-1980-Jack-Nicholson-as-Jack-Torrance.jpg

Francis Ford Coppola would read passages of Heart of Darkness to Marlon Brando on the fractious set of Apocalypse Now after learning the actor had never read the source material.

Fight Club and Choke author Chuck Palahnuik can be glimpsed ever so briefly in the final scene of the latter. He’s sitting next to Sam Rockwell on the plane.

o753492.jpg

Courtney Love insists that the role of the heroin dealer, Lance, in Pulp Fiction was offered to Kurt Cobain. Tarantino has steadfastly refuted this claim, saying he never even met the late Nirvana singer.

Ronald Reagan was originally announced as the lead for Casablanca. The proclamation turned out to simply be a ruse to keep the actor’s name in the press.

While everyone knows Viggo Mortensen replaced Stuart Townsend at the last minute in The Lord of the Rings for Aragorn, the beardy ranger had no intention of joining Jackson and co until his son begged him to do it. Good son.

There’s a 20 year age gap between Sam Neill and Laura Dern in Jurassic Park, with Laura aged only 26 during filming.

Meanwhile, only 12 years separates father/son duo Sean Connery and Harrison Ford in the Indiana Jones franchise.

The many parts turned down by Sean Connery include roles in The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, Jurassic Park, Indy IV and Blade Runner.

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Cruise? Cusack? Carrey? Depp? All were considered for the part of the hooky playing teen in Ferris Buellers’ Day Off

James Woods fired his agent upon learning – after the movie was shot – that Quentin Tarantino wanted him for a part in Reservoir Dogs.

Bill Murray as Batman? Almost. Until Tim Burton came on board Murray was top of the list. Perhaps when the inevitable re-reboot transpires Bill will get another shot.

Ever the bastard, David Fincher asked a stuntman to fall down the stairs 12 times in Fight Club for the fight between Norton and Pitt. He used the first take.

Speaking of stunts, Alan Rickman was dropped a second early to get his true reaction to falling from the Nakatomi Plaza in Die Hard.

James Caan improvised the, now immortal, phrase “Bada-Bing” on the set of The Godfather.

JamesCaanTheGodfather.jpg

Christian Bale based elements of his performance as Patrick Bateman in American Psycho on Tom Cruise after seeing an interview with the diminutive star. According to director Mary Harron, Bale said he saw “this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes”.

Orson Welles directed much of Citizen Kane from a wheelchair, after injuring himself on set.

Shooting for No Country For Old Men was interrupted for a day due to a smoke cloud from the set of There Will Be Blood, which was also filming in the area.

When filming Chinatown Jack Nicholson was dating Anjelica Huston, the daughter of his screen nemesis John Huston. She visited the set on the day that her father’s character asked Nicolson’s Jake Gittes, “Did you sleep with my daughter?”. Awkward.

The sirens heard in the casino scene in Swingers were police on their way to stop the film makers who were shooting without a permit.

Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn called Irreversible director Gasper Noe midshoot for advice on how to successfully shoot a ‘head smashing’ scene.

Executive producer of Toy Story and Chief Pixar shareholder Steve Jobs picked Bob Dylan as his first choice to write and perform the soundtrack to the film over Randy Newman.

Play It, Sam? Dooley Wilson, Sam in Casablanca, was a professional drummer who couldn’t play the piano. He simply mimed along, copying an offscreen pianist.

In order to credibly portray a rock band, the members of Stillwater in Almost Famous rehearsed for four hours a night, five nights a week, for six weeks.

Before Stanley Kubrick came on-board for A Clockwork Orange writer Anthony Burgess considered selling the movie rights to Mick Jagger with the intention of Jagger playing Alex and the rest of the Stones playing the other Droogs. Keef with eyeliner? Don’t be silly.

Clockwork-Orange-34.jpg

Pulp members Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey and Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood and Phil Selway were four of The Weird Sisters in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Jason Buckle (All Seeing I) and Steven Claydon (Add n to (x)) completed the line up.

Franz Ferdinand were the original choice to play the band at the Hogwarts Yule Ball.

Enya was James Cameron’s first choice to compose the music for Titanic.

The name of the band isn’t mentioned once in The Beatles’ first feature, A Hard Day’s Night.

Nerdy Review: Ready Player One: Is it Game Over For Spielberg?

What can I say? I am a die hard Speilberg fan, his movies embrace, what I feel is the most important aspect of film, wonderment and entertainment.

RPO_TRLR_0032.jpg

Having been born in the 80’s, my childhood has been heavily influenced by Spielberg, his movies always seem to elicit multiple viewings.

ready-player-one-wallpapers-29830-4678930.png

Ready, Player One was an incredible mix of nostalgia and important storytelling, it mixed many classic Speilberg elements; i.e Villian, hero, friendship, teamwork, humour, and action.

ready-player-one-movie-image-iron-giant.jpg

I’ve watched this movie 5 times already and it keeps getting better! Spielberg understands how to tell a story. If you grew up on movies from the 80’s/90’s this movie will make you feel great as you watch it!

Nerdy Trailer Alert: Jim Carrey in what could be his darkest role yet “Dark Crimes”

Anyone born in the 80’s will tell you that Jim Carrey has been a major part of their lives, he has been entertaining us for years, mostly with his comedy, but in this trailer for his new movie “Dark Crimes” it looks like we won’t be seeing Jim’s Comedic side.

Release Date: May 18th, 2018

Nerdy Trailer Alert: We finally get a look at Venom in the New trailer! Click for Trailer and Release Date

The new trailer for Sony’s Venom movie is out, and it corrects the first trailer’s mistake by actually having Venom in it. Quite a lot of Venom, actually, to the point where I might suggest staying away if you’re spoiler-averse. For everyone else, you’ll get to see Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock coming to terms with the new powers bestowed upon him by the symbiote and using them to predictably violent effect.

Venom is out October 5th. Official Movie Poster:
