Me: Let’s sit right in the middle!

Also Me: Oh, there 3 or 4 people kind of near the middle better just sit off to the side, don’t want to annoy them by sitting too close.

That awkward moment when your butt fall asleep because you’ve been sitting for 2 hours but you don’t want to get up and walk around for fear of annoying other movie goers

When someone who’s 7 Feet tall is sitting behind you and accidentally keeps hitting the back of you chair but you don’t want to cause a scene so you convince  yourself that you enjoy it.

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!

Christopher Nolan Marathon Time

Christopher Nolan is one of my favorite film-makers, I feel in love with his movies when I watch Memento (2000) 18 years ago, and have loved every movie he’s made since then. Today we list the ultimate Christopher Nolan Marathon list, Enjoy!

1. Memento (2000) – This movie only took 25 days to shoot

2. Insomnia (2002) – The only movie where Nolan is not credited for writing the movie, even though, he wrote the final draft

3. Batman Begins (2005) – Nolan was so fascinated with Cillian Murphy’s bright blue eyes that he kept trying to find reasons to have Crane remove his glasses.

4. The Prestige (2006) – Nolan meticulously studied Tesla’s experiments to recreate them with integrity. Especially the light globe scene.

5. The Dark Knight (2008) – Heath Ledger created the make-up for The Joker, when Nolan saw it, he immediately asked his make up team to recreate it.

6. Inception (2010) – Leonardo DiCaprio provided a lot of feedback and changes to the actual script. Nolan was quoted as saying “Once Leo came on board, I spent months and months sitting with him and discussing the script”

7. The Dark Knight Rises (2012) – This movie was the fastest to shoot out of all of Nolan’s Batman movies.

8. Interstellar (2014) – The plot of this movie was so secretive, Matthew McConaughey didn’t even revel the plot to his wife until the post-production was complete.

9. Dunkirk (2017) – The ticking sounds that serve as the crucial theme on the Dunkirk’s score were recorded by Hans Zimmer from one of Nolan’s own pocket watches.

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.

Top 5 Old Movies You Need to Rewatch Now

Good Will Hunting (1997)

Something about watching snobby upper-class people fawn over a seemingly average everyday Genius is heart warming. The dialogue between Robin Williams and Matt Damon is incredible and the scene when Matt Damon has an emotional break through with Robin Williams still makes me tear up.

 

The Godfather Trilogy (1972, 1974, 1990)

Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, one of the most iconic movie trilogy’s ever created. The performances by all actor’s in this movie are mesmerizing, the dedication to making this a one of a kind movie, for example, do you remember the scene with the horse’s head in the movie producers bed? Guess what, they got a real horses head from a dog food company and used it without telling the actor, so when we moved the sheets and saw the head his screams are genuine as he was not expecting to see a REAL severed horse head in the scene.

 

E.T. The Extra-terrestrial (1982)

This movie was nominated for 9 OSCARS! A Sci-Fi movie about a weird looking alien and the group of kids who found him received more Oscar noms than some dramatic serious movies that are made with the sole intention of receiving awards. This movie was actually suppose to be very different, Spielberg originally intended this movie to be about a family that is terrorized by a group of aliens, he decided that it would be better suited as a family friendly movie and because of that we have this master piece.

 

Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

Another Speilberg movie makes the list, but are you surprised?, he is one of the most iconic storytellers. Indiana Jones is just a fun movie to watch, everything about it, you have a hero, a villain, and a whole lot of action in between. Harrison Ford cemented his place as a leading man with this movie. The iconic scene in the market when the crowd parts ways to reveal a sword swinging bad guy, the audience thinking a big over the top fight scene is about to take place, instead Indie pulls his gun out a shoots him! Guess what, that was improved by Harrison Ford and is one of my favorite parts of the movie.

 

Forrest Gump (1994)

Everyone should have seen this movie at least once by now, the story of a simple man, and his journey through life. Tom Hanks is one of my favorite actors, he seem like he’d be a nice guy if you ran into him on the street. Also based on everything that’s going on in Hollywood it’s nice to know that there are still some good guys out there. This movie garnered a total of thirteen Academy Award nominations, of which it won six, including Best Picture, Best Visual Effects, Best Director (Robert Zemeckis), and Best Actor (Tom Hanks). While you’re rewatching this movie take a close look at any picture of Forrest through out the film? Notice anything? HIS EYES ARE CLOSED IN ANY PICTURE OF HIM IN THE MOVIE!

 

Let me know what you think of the picks for oldies to re-watch. Thanks!
