Ready Player One Premier’s at SXSW

Steven Spielberg’s newest Blockbuster Ready Player One (March 28th, 2018) premiered at SXSW to mixed reviews. Some people are hailing it as Spielberg’s return to nostalgic blockbusters and others saying it offers “…nothing new or exciting..” – After going through hundred’s of tweets, I would say the majority of people loved it. The common trend seems to be that normal movie goers love the movie but critics are picking it apart on technicalities on it’s Story Telling.

I think critics need to understand that movies don’t have to be perfect, sometimes, movies are perfectly nostalgic and are made to make evoke happiness, instead of being a commentary on social injustices. I’ll update this as soon as I see the movie.

Check out the trailer and a few tweets below…

 

Top 5 Summer Blockbuster to Get Excited About

 

Every summer viewers are blessed with the release of the year’s biggest blockbusters. I took some time to list some of the movies I’m most excited to see this summer.

Avengers: Infinity War (April 27th, 2018) – Rumor has it that the follow up Avengers movie is slated for release exactly one year after Infinity War is released.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25th, 2018) – One Rumor that has been confirmed to be true, we will finally see how Han Solo acquired the Millennium Falcom from Lando!

The Incredibles 2 (June 15th, 2018) – I have been waiting for this for so long, the original was released in 2004! We’ve been waiting 14 years for this, let’s go already!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (June 22nd, 2018) – This installment in the Jurassic franchise is being directed by J.A Bayona (The Orphanage, The Impossible, A Monster Calls), after watching the trailer I have a feeling this will be the most frightening film in the Jurassic collection.

Deadpool 2 (May 18th, 2018) – I mean it’s hard not to get excited about this movie. Ryan Reynolds is back as everybody’s favorite douchbag, Deadpool! Josh Brolin being added as the villain is awesome, I mean the guy is tough as nails, and is the perfect man to play Cable!

Hype Movie Alert: Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom

The first movie I ever saw in theaters was Jurassic Park, so it should come as no surprise that I am super excited for the release on the latest installment in the Jurassic Universe.

So far the biggest news I’ve seen is that Jeff Goldblum is set to return as Dr. Ian Malcolm. Ladies and Gent’s Get your popcorn ready for June 22, 2018 that’s when Fallen Kingdom is set to be released.

Hype Movie Alert: A Quiet Place

Ladies and Gentleman Jim from the office is all grown up and in a Horror movie now! This past weekend John was in Austin at SXSW 2018 to premier his latest film A Quiet Place, the reviews have started coming in and people are impressed/terrified! Check out some of the tweets…

 

Needless to say I’m looking forward to this one, the storyline seems original, and intense. Well done Jim Harper, Well done.

The Shape of Water wins Best Picture

Guillermo del Toro does it again! A visually stunning movie with excellent performances from the entire cast. I can’t believe a movie that would of been pitched as a thriller/musical/interspecies love story got made, let alone, won Oscar’s and is being regarded as one of the best movies of the year.

Online Release Date: March 13th, 2018

It was an “uncomfortable” story line and some people might not like it but damnnnnnnn it was engaging and made me want to keep watching.

FUN FACT: Guillermo del Toro was drunk at a Golden Globes party when he pitched the idea to Hawkins

Definitely worth watching!
