Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool sequel could have premiered in theaters without any sort of promotion and I still would be there opening night to view it. Luckily, so far, we have had several teasers and footage to keep us all sated, so many that I just put three different hyperlinks in this paragraph. Nothing has been as satisfying, though; than the trailer just released today. In typical Deadpool fashion, we open up to Dopinder enjoying some tunes in his cab, before Wade Wilson ruins the calming moment.
The Sci-Fi genre is alive and well. 21 days after Netflix released Altered Carbon, the streaming service offered another neo-noir, cyberpunk original featuring a hot Swede as the lead. Alexander Skarsgard is the main character in this Duncan Jones film, about a mute bartender who lost his voice due to an accident when he was little. Coming from an Amish family, “Leo” was not able to get the surgery he needed to repair his vocal cords and as a result, lost his ability to speak. Now an adult, he bartends and carves wood and the movie really begins when he realizes his girlfriend has vanished without a trace.
I love independent movies. They’re extremely underrated and deserve more recognition. One film I’ve watched recently and really enjoyed was 2015’s Jackie & Ryan. Starring Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes, this romantic drama was filmed entirely in Utah and only took twenty days to shoot. While that sounds like it may not be enough time to put together a decent flick, I wouldn’t rule this one out. It’s a very enjoyable and feel-good movie that’s worth your time.
While the Sci-Fi genre isn’t something I normally gravitate to when picking a movie or a show, there’s no arguing against the fact that Sci-Fi is making a comeback. Between Star Trek: Discovery, Cloverfield Paradox, and more, this category is popular and gaining momentum rapidly.
Do you ever feel like you’ve watched everything on Netflix and are in desperate need for something else? That’s how I felt when Altered Carbon was released on February 2, 2018. Based on a novel that I’ve never even heard of previously, I wondered if this was something for me. The internet heavily promoted this series and every time I opened up Netflix, there it was. Since I had nothing else to watch, I tuned in.
Marvel has been releasing a lot of trailers recently. Jessica Jones S2, Deadpool 2, Avengers: Infinity War, and Black Panther. All badass. The latest teaser to be released today was Sony’s Venom movie, starring Tom Hardy. Taking place, supposedly; within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve looked forward to seeing how the studio would pull off a film about the well-known symbiote. This morning we got our first look and it was…meh.
