Hanging On A Flying Jet? Mission:Impossible

Having only seen the fourth installment in this series I'm honestly hyped for this one, the trailer looks good, the action top notch and that plane bit at the end? KICKASS!!! Though again as someone who's obviously not a big fan, I wonder if these movies only exist as an excuse for Tom Cruise to make big stunt set pieces, I'll probably watch the other ones to make sure, but as far as I'm concerned I'm sold. One thing I'm wondering though, will this beat out the previous one in quality? From what I'm told each film gets better then its predecessor, if that is the case I'm wondering if this series can continue doing that for however long it decides to stay, in any case, Mission:Impossible-Rogue Nation, premieres July 31st, 2015.

Pixels Trailer, Surprisingly Cool

I was honestly surprised, a Sandler movie that seems restrained from his usual shtick? Especially with how easy it'd be to apply it here? Pixels looks like a straightforward action movie with some jokes thrown in because, well video games, yet the jokes are pretty funny, without ever going far into the typical Sandler routine. Based on a short film (this one), the movie seems to be taking a more Ghostbusters like route here, which will be interesting once the reboot to that comes out, I'm betting neither will be as good as Ghostbusters, but it'll be fun to compare the two as successors. I'm honestly interested in this movie, despite the signs of it being bad I think it has potential, though one has to wonder if the film will feature more cameos of iconic video game developers.Pixels are coming July 24th, 2015.

Spongebob Double Feature:A Difference In TV To Film Adaptations

16 years ago the world was introduce to a sponge, he's a fry cook, a jelly fisher, a horrid driver, a TV star and even a film star, SpongeBob has meant so much to the world that he just got another film recently (reviewed here) which now gives competition to the first film (reviewed here).Both films are fine examples in translating a show to a movie, both feel unique and fresh, but all things considered one is superior to the other. What SpongeBob manages to offer in both films though are two distinct ways a movie can be made out of show.

Hotel Transylvania 2 Teaser Leaves The Nest

Despite a lot of mixed responses from critics, Hotel Transylvania was actually pretty well received by most audiences, myself included. I never really got interest for a sequel but we're getting one this year anyway, which I must admit still brandishes the nice comedic qualities of the first if this trailer is anything to go by. As a teaser it feels more akin to the typical Pixar teaser then anything, show a small clip giving you an idea of the movie, but not much else, I don't mind it's all funny stuff. Coming  September 25th, 2015, the Drac Pack returns, possibly with just as many laughs as the first.

Inside Out's Got More Than A Feeling Inside This Trailer

I actually saw this film at a test screening a few weeks back, so with all honesty I can say this movie is... REALLY good, great even. I'll save my review until it comes out, but here's a few things of note, this trailer represents the movie well, the song on here is not in the movie at all which shouldn't surprise anyone, and though a certain major character is visible in it, the trailer seems to avoid highlighting him, so I guess you'll have to wait and see the film. As mentioned before this is a good movie, I think this trailer promotes it right, but if you didn't like it just know it is great, definitely Pixar's best in a while.

Tomorrowland Trailer-He Also Made Ratatouille

Brad Bird has done some really great stuff, so even if this trailer was awful I'd be willing to go just because I'm sure this would be misleading, bad marketing, but this trailer is really interesting. It's a nice change of pace to see a blockbuster like this presenting a more optimistic looking future, considering most future movies now only present dystopian worlds, the visuals really do have a beauty to it that I hope will really impress me once it comes out.The only thing I'm really curious about here though is the action, I remember hearing that this movie wouldn't be very action heavy, which I think is great, but this trailer seems to suggest otherwise, at least towards the end, hopefully it's still minimal as I really do hope it doesn't become a generic action film once I see it. Tomorrowland is out May 22nd this year, just enough time for you to give it a shot after a certain superhero team destroys the box office.

Tim Schafer GamerGate joke-Racist?! Sexist?!

It's a joke, good or bad, pro gamergaters  need to lighten up, there's nothing racist, or sexist about it, stop making convoluted reasons why it's racist or whatever, its not. I think the offense is only towards GamerGate, nothing else there can offend you otherwise because he's just making a wordplay kind of joke that also mocks a stupid hashtag, #notyourshield may refer to the minorities or women involved but there's also no denying that some who use it are not in either category.

As a non-white male I'm not offended because I know he's not referring to my people, just a stupid hashtag group, deal with it.

CHAPPiE-One Happy Chap

Synopsis-In the near future, Johannesburg has installed a robotic police system, but creator Deon Wilson sees potential in more upon creating the artificially intelligent  CHAPPiE. CHAPPiE must learn and grow in a world that hates his existence, with a choice between being artistic or dangerous.

Avengers:Age Of Ultron -Final Trailer?

 

Just like that, we got ourselves the final trailer of Avengers:Age of Ultron... maybe, it's hard to say these days, with the internet and marketing teams doing anything to make sure you go watch their movies, maybe we'll get a Vision trailer or whatever, but for now this seems like the final official trailer. For a final trailer this is really awesome, lots of kickass action, James Spader proving he was born to be Ultron and of course our first glimpse of The Vision, who some say may be sporting a soul gem (stone for the movies)  but that's all speculation. Watch the trailer, decide if you like or love it and buy your tickets as early as possible.
