Oscar Alert: Will Sam Mendes win Best Director for 1917?

“Anyone who appreciates cinema should see this movie, any casual movie lovers should also see this movie, as a matter of fact everyone should see this movie.”
-NerdyPopcorn

Colin Firth

Sam Mendes is at the top of the list for the Oscar for best director, if he wins it’ll best his second, he won at the 72nd Academy Awards for his first major motion picture, American Beauty. Since then he has Directed numerous big budget movies, none of the were met with the same critical acclaim, however, 1917 has. 21 years after his first win Mendes, who still shoot movies on film instead of digital, is taking us on the journey of a pair of British servicemen tasked with delivering a message in the middle of battle.

The cinematography is beautiful, the flow of the camera as it follows the character is flawless , even if you don’t like war movies you’ll be mesmerized by the camera work. The movie has a beautiful amount of tension, which is a result of the music, done by Thomas Newman, whose resume also includes American Beauty. What I absolutely love about this movie is that you could never guess what happens next, Mendes does a fantastic job capturing the uncertainty of war, which gives you a sense of dread as you watch the story unfold.

The two lead actors are virtually unknown, but Mendes accounts for this by surrounding them with Hollywood royalty, within the first 15 minutes you’ll see appearances by Colin Firth and Andrea Scott, brief but strong performances by both. 1917 is a perfect example of what can be achieved when you have some of the best in the world behind the scenes, the acting was fabulous, but what makes this story special is the collaboration between director/writer, cinematography, music, and photography.

This movie will win both Best Picture and Best Director. Entertainment value is through the roof, minimal slow and drawn out parts, and never a dull moment. Anyone who appreciates cinema should see this movie, any casual movie lovers should also see this movie, as a matter of fact everyone should see this movie.

One of the Darkest Superhero Movies Ever Made – The Joker Now Online

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does it’s truly breathtaking and that’s what Todd Phillips has done with Joker. This truly terrifying movie takes a deep look into mental illness and how society has failed those who suffer.

Do not delay, I highly recommend watching this for yourself. Here is a list of ratings from some of the most common rating sites:

IMDB: 8.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 69%
Google: 93%

As a side note, Rotten Tomatoes is actually a joke and no one should rely on their highly flawed rating systems (More to come on that in a separate post).

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!

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:

Nerdy Trailer Alert: Rampage to smash into theatres​ on 4/20

We have the latest in video game adaptations to hit theatres, Rampage, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Typically video game adaptation bomb at the box office (Mortal Kombat, Assassin’s Creed, Warcraft, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), there always seems to be something missing that writers, directors, and producers can’t recreate.

I was never a huge Rampage fan growing up but this trailer does make the movie look like a fun ride and that’s what’s most important. I feel like the CGI is going to be amazing and Rock of going to bring his A game which will ultimately lead to a good (Not Great) movie.

I think this movie is going to be exactly what you think it will be, action-packed and fun, one of those movies you put on when you’re in the mood to just enjoy something in the background, similar to, San Andreas, and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Finally, Disney Promises We’ll see Toy Story 4 in 2019

Disney used it’s social media accounts to announce that they’ll be releasing, Toy Story 4 on June 21st, 2019. Nerdy popcorn has learned that this will not be a direct installment to the 3rd movie, rather, it will focus on a Woody and Bo Peep (Who was noticeably absent from the 3rd movies). The latest movie will likely have nothing to do with the first 3.

Stephany Folsom, who contributed to writing Thor Ragnarok, has been hired to write the script.

 

Deadpool 2 Official Trailer, Wait, Did I just see Terry Crews in the trailer? That can’t be right

The latest trailer for Deadpool 2 looks incredible and I got a semi-chub just watching it! Deadpool 2 is slated for release May 18, 2018, and I, for one, cannot wait!

Rumours have been swirling regarding the main villain played by Jack Kesy, apparently, he was cut from the movie, this would completely change the story. The news isn’t surprising as we’ve also been hearing that there have been multiple late re-shoots and that the initial screening has not been testing well with audiences. It will be interesting to see the final product.

 

So Not officially listed on the cast but I think I can confirm 100% that Terry Crews is definitely in Deadpool 2 and I couldn’t be more excited about that!deadpool-2-full-trailer-breakdown-easter-eggs-theories-and-s_2bpj

 

Who else is excited to see Deadpool 2? Did you love the trailer? Post in the comments below.

John Krasinski’s​ 5 Favorite Movies & Why he Loves them!

In light of the recent release of filmmaker/actor John Krasinski’s movie “The Quiet Place”, we managed to track down 5 of John’s favourite movies and why he loves them.

If you’re anxious to see more of John, filming of his new Amazon TV Series Jack Ryan is scheduled to premiere this August.

Kramer Vs. Kramer (1979)

Ted Kramer’s wife leaves her husband, allowing for a lost bond to be rediscovered between Ted and his son, Billy. But a heated custody battle ensues over the divorced couple’s son, deepening the wounds left by the separation.

Director: Robert Benton

Writers: Avery Corman (from the novel by), Robert Benton (written for the screen by)

Stars: Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Jane Alexander

John on why he loves this movie:

I was one of those kids who had never seen an indie film before I got to college.

If it wasn’t a big, huge tentpole movie, or if it wasn’t on the radio, I hadn’t

experienced it. Then in college, I started getting into independent movies, which

led me to classic movies, which led me to all this different stuff. The 1970s

movies, for me, were only discovered, unfortunately, as little as six or seven

years ago.

So Kramer vs. Kramer. Some of the greatest writing I’ve ever seen, some

of the gutsiest performances. It’s just so quintessential of what the 1970s were

for me. There’s just this unfiltered, raw energy, and despite how beautiful that

movie is — and obviously, it’s a well-done movie — the fact [is] that they’re

not making movies like that anymore. [Kramer vs. Kramer is about] a horrible

relationship. It’s a really tough situation for the father to be in, and yet

[for] everyone who went and saw the movie, there was this weird understanding or

commiseration with anger. I think people might have been angrier, or willing to

see angry movies.

Ordinary People (1980)

The accidental death of the older son of an affluent family deeply strains the relationships among the bitter mother, the good-natured father, and the guilt-ridden younger son.

Director: Robert Redford

Writers: Judith Guest (novel), Alvin Sargent (screenplay)

Stars: Donald Sutherland, Mary Tyler Moore, Judd Hirsch

John on why he loves this movie:

Timothy Hutton turns in one of the best male performances I’ve ever seen. And that

family dynamic was so subtle in what could have been a really angsty movie.

Everything from the way it was shot to the way it was acted. John Bailey was

actually the DP on my movie that I directed (Brief Interviews with Hideous

Men) and he was saying that when they shot the psychiatrist scenes he

started out with the camera right over their shoulders, and then he moved the

camera back slowly and changed the lighting, because he said that if you’d been

going to therapy for months, then the lighting would be different every time of

the same day. And I thought, “That’s insane that someone thought of that.” And

then he moved the camera back 100 feet so that they were compressed on each

other so it was a much more intimate scene. I was like, “Wait, wait, wait, this

is insane!”

 

The Verdict (1982)

A lawyer sees the chance to salvage his career and self-respect by taking a medical malpractice case to trial rather than settling.

Director: Sidney Lumet

Writers: Barry Reed (based upon the novel by), David Mamet (screenplay)

Stars: Paul Newman, Charlotte Rampling, Jack Warden

John on why he loves this movie:

I think it’s probably one of the most inspirational movies for me because of

Paul Newman‘s performance. I think that is, to me, some of the best, [most]

controlled acting in a movie. I think that he has this incredible likability.

Even though he’s a drunk, washed-up lawyer, you’re still rooting for him from

the very beginning.

I’m that sort of weird guy who will watch a movie almost every day if I can.

It’s harder when you’re working on the show. I buy a lot of movies on used DVD

so I can have certain scenes. I was really looking for things to inspire me.

When I got out of college I was waiting tables professionally [and] couldn’t

afford to go the theater [every] night. I think those great movies can actually

make you feel a certain way. Not only emotionally, but if you’re in

this business, it’s one of those things where you see someone do something that

good and it buys you a year of energy. That’s what I was really looking for. It

sounds so cliché,[but I wanted] to bask in the glow some of these amazing

performances, like [those of] Dustin Hoffman and Marlon Brando. But it was also

fun. To get back to what I was saying before, that 1970s raw energy, it’s almost

frustrating now that people aren’t making more movies like that because people

won’t go see them.

On the Waterfront (1954)

An ex-prize fighter turned longshoreman struggles to stand up to his corrupt union bosses.

Director: Elia Kazan

Writers: Budd Schulberg (screenplay), Budd Schulberg (based upon an original story by)

Stars: Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb

John on why he loves the movie:

That movie for me was my Marlon Brando experience before The Godfather,

before Streetcar. It’s weird to be living in a modern world where

acting has changed. Movies have changed so much, and yet you can still see what

defined [Brando] and his performance. If I told you that so-and-so was the first

person to do something 30 years ago, you’d be like, “Well, I don’t care, because

people do it now all the time.” There’s still nobody doing what he does in that

movie. And so that really changed everything for me. Also, there was something

really exciting and sad about the whole political aspect of that movie. The

whole blacklisting thing.

The Godfather (1972)

The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son.

Director: Francis Ford Coppola

Writers: Mario Puzo (screenplay by), Francis Ford Coppola (screenplay by)

Stars: Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan

John on why he loves this movie:

Only because it’s everybody’s number one choice. I kinda feel, in this day and age —

not to be sounding bad in any way — we live in a culture where something’s

good, and some people will say it’s awesome, and they may not have even seen it

or they didn’t like it. But they want to agree with the cultural zeitgeist. I

feel like that movie has stood up to time [and] criticism, and yet everybody can

find the exact same reasons as to why it’s awesome. I mean, it’s so

well-written. It’s a slow movie that you’re still riveted by. It’s [got]

character development unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. And of course, the

performances are wild.

 

“A Quiet Place” is out and Twitter is loosing it, Also a message from the makers “STFU” during the movie

You have to see a list of the Highest Paid Actors in 2017

2017 saw a decline in the box office but that didn’t stop the actors on this list to cash in. The following list is from Low to High

Tom Cruise: $43M

Tom Cruise Laughing Black N White Sitting Photoshoot.jpg

The actor received an estimated eight-figure salary from Then Mummy and Mission Impossible: 6

Robert Downey Jr.: $48M

Robert-Downey-Jr-Picture.jpg

Ironman recently dropped from the number one spot, but I bet he isn’t too concerned as he is still making millions portraying a superhero.

Jackie Chan: $49M

wallpapersden.com_jackie-chan-in-suit-images_1920x1200.jpg

Jackie may not be the box office star he used to be in the US but he is still one of China’s biggest movie stars.

Adam Sandler: $50.5M

adam_sandler_actor_face_smile_cap_beard_98948_1920x1080.jpg

His movies have been ripped apart by moviegoers and critics alike, but Sandler is laughing his way to the bank with his newly inked 4 movie deal with Netflix.

 

Vin Diesel: $54.5M

_main2_vin2.jpg

Vin’s specialty? Franchises, he is currently making bank on both the Fast and The Furious and Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson: $65M

TheRock3-1-1030x686.jpg

This should come as no surprise as the Rock is virtually everywhere, he a multitude of action movie slated to be released in 2018.

Mark Wahlberg: $68Mmark-wahlberg-desktop-wallpaper-50253-51941-hd-wallpapers.jpg

This has been Mark’s highest earning year ever, thanks to movies like Daddy’s home 2 and Transformers: The Last Knight, he also had an endorsement deal with AT&T and success through his burger chain.

Confirmed: Lord of The Rings TV Series coming to Amazon for an Estimated $1 Billion Price Tag

Rumours are stirring regarding the details of the Lord of the Rings TV Series being produced by Amazon Studios, reports are suggesting that Amazon paid $1 Billion dollars for a 5 season commitment. I also heard that Jeff Bezos personally handled the negotiations.

20171012220247-ent-nov11-bezos1

There have also been rumours that Peter Jackson (Director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy) will be involved in the project!

peter-jackson

All of these reports are early, but if true, it shows Amazon’s commitment to this project and should result in a TV series that will rival HBO’s Game of Thrones.

I for one am very interested to see what comes of this, I am having trouble imagining which route the series will take? Will they centre the 5 season’s around Frodo returning the Ring to Mordor or will this be entirely different from the books/movies?

Confirmed: Indiana Jones 5 will be Harrison Ford’s last

Steve Spielberg just confirmed that Indiana Jones 5 will be the last time Harrison Ford plays the iconic character, it was also confirmed that we will be getting more Indiana Jones movies after the 5th film. The movie is set to be released July 20, 2020

Spielberg was said “This will be Harrison Ford’s last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that,”

He also discussed the possibility of transitioning the iconic character to a female, Spielberg notes that he knows this may outrage fans, however, he feels that it is time for a change.

“We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” Said Spielberg

indiana_jones_donna_projectnerd

Male or female I am still genuinely excited for more Indiana Jones films, I personally love any movie dealing with Treasure hunting. Also, I transition to a female lead would be a welcomed change, I’d be very interested to see which actress’s would be considered for this role.

Post who you think would make a great female Indiana Jones in the comment section below!

Confirmed: Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film titled “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”

Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film will be titled ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, and will star Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film will be released worldwide on August 9, 2019.

Personally excited to see this movie develop, I have been a Tarantino fan since I saw PULP FICTION, and have always appreciated the characters that both DiCaprio and Pitt have played. We’re a year and half away from what I hope will be another Tarantino epic. Rumor has it that Margot Robbie will be signing on to play Sharon Tate.

Tarantino describes it as “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate.”

Tarantino worked with Pitt in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS which grossed over $321 million worldwide and was nominated for eight Academy Awards®, winning for Best Supporting Actor. DiCaprio starred in the director’s DJANGO UNCHAINED, which grossed over $425 million worldwide, and was nominated for five Academy Awards®, and won for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor. His most recent film was the $532 million-grossing THE REVENANT in 2015, for which he won the Oscar® for Best Actor.

Tarantino comments: “I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old. I’m very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”

Top iTunes Movie Charts with quick reviews April 1, 2018

U.S. iTunes Top Purchase/Rentals April 1st, 2018:

  1. Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Amazing but I’m Biased, not sure that it was better than the Force Awakens but damn I loved this movie (And every Star Wars Movie)
  2. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – Entertaining but felt like it wasn’t a good enough remake
  3. The Greatest Showman – It was alright, the soundtrack was great, the movie was just ok, if you’re into musicals you may enjoy more than I did.
  4. Molly’s Game – It was just ok, I thought it was going to be incredible, but it wasn’t if it wasn’t based on a true story it would be awful.
  5. The Foreigner – Jackie Chan action/thriller, can’t go wrong if you like Jackie, the story was kind of good too, definitely an enjoyable movie for action lovers.
  6. Pitch Perfect 3 – Not as good as the first one, or the second one, I think they should have stopped after the first one but that’s just me.
  7. I, Tonya – Great movie, the acting was amazing, and the story was crazy, for the first time since reading about this I felt bad for Tonya.
  8. Thor: Ragnarok – Marvel does it again with another action-packed superhero movie, my only beef is that Marvel keeps making comedy a big part of their superhero movies, still incredible though.
  9. Coco – Disney/Pixar does it again, love this movie, the songs are amazing and the visualize are on point. if you like animated movies, you’ll love this.
  10. Downsizing – Weird movie, very very frustrating, and I swear I wanted to smack Matt Damon’s character a few times but it was an interesting take on the future, worth watching once but don’t expect much.

“Westworld” Season 2 Trailer Reveals New Theme Park

It feels like forever since Westworld burst onto our screens in 2016, garnering 22 Emmy nominations, a 92% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, critical recognition worldwide, and swiftly becoming the first show to really give Game of Thrones a run for its money.

The trailer below should get you hyper up for the April 22nd, premier date, keep an eye out for a glimpse of Shogun World, the second theme park revealed at the end of season one.

 

Confirmed: Tom Hanks to write and Star in WWII epic “Greyhound”

In the early days of WWII, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by captain Ernest Krause (Hanks) in his first command of a U.S. destroyer, crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while hotly pursued by wolf packs of Nazi U-boats.

Principal Photography has begun on the WWII dramatic thriller GREYHOUND, starring and written by Tom Hanks, based on C.S. Forester’s novel “The Good Shepherd.” Aaron Schneider (GET LOW) is directing.

Elisabeth Shue (BATTLE OF THE SEXES), Rob Morgan (MUDBOUND) and Stephen Graham (THE IRISHMAN) also star.

 

A Quite Place FINAL TRAILER is Here

Early reaction to John Krasinski’s big screen directorial debut has been phenomenal and judging by the trailers I am not surprised at all. Each trailer has gotten better and better, I am really hoping this isn’t one of those cases where the trailer is better than the movie.

I am anxiously waiting for this one to hit theaters, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a proper scary movie in theaters.

Is Netflix’s new Sci-Fi thriller “The Titan” worth watching?

Feature length debut for German born director Lennart Ruff was an ambitious venture into the Sci-fi realm, the story, cast, and direction had potential but ultimately fell flat. Sam Worthington’s performance was well done and helped redeem the failed storyline.

sam-worthington-is-transformed-into-an-enhanced-super-human-in-trailer-for-the-sci-fi-film-the-titan-social.jpg

I really enjoyed the beginning of this movie and thought it could of been really well done, however, as time went on, I realized that the movie wasn’t progressing fast enough, which ultimately led to an empty and lackluster ending.

Immensely disappointed that this movie wasn’t better than it was but in the end I feel like this was a failed script/story and not necessarily the directors fault, I’m not sure how Netflix’s exec’s didn’t foresee that people would be disappointed with the ending and ultimately the movie but Netflix’s recent push (Annihilation) into the realm of Sci-fi has shown promise and Sci-Fi fans should be excited to see what’s next.
