Don’t Breath 2 trailer

I wasn’t a huge fan of Don’t Breathe but I respected it as something a bit out of the ordinary; the sequel looks to be continuing the trend. I like that the Blind Man seems like more of a antihero this time around and this seems like a action revenge thriller. I think it’ll stand out as the last film had. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Deadpool reaction trailer

So it weirdly seems fitting that this is how Deadpool would pop up in the MCU. Not a huge cameo, not a reality bending movie, but a reaction trailer to a Ryan Reynolds movie. Granted, Free Guy looks great but honestly Deadpool and Korg are a fun duo and I hope to see them together again. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Black Widow

Black Widow (Movie, 2021) | Trailer, Release Date, & More | Marvel

On the run after being declared a fugitive after Civil War, Natasha Romanoff is used to lonely undercover gigs and being on the run. She’s also used to losing family. When attacked by a skull-masked assailant known as the Taskmaster, Natasha is faced with a terrible fact that the Russian organization that created her and countless Widows is still at large and it’s up to her and her old spy family to bring down the “Red Room” once and for all while being hunted by a enemy that not only as adapted to Natasha’s fighting skills but the other Avengers as well.

Ok, I’m not going to bullshit anyone here, I hated this movie. Not every MCU movie was a gem but at least had redeeming features and was entertaining to various degrees; I was not entertained by this movie. The plot is a bad recycling of Captain America: Winter Soldier with none of the epic fights, drama, or characters that movie had. The fights are few and far between and are so over the top, I couldn’t get invested; knowing Widow was going to survive this movie sure as hell didn’t help the tensionless action either. Taskmaster, a badass menace in the comics, is a boring droid pretending to be Winter Soldier that’s story is both predictable and uneventful. The comedy is forced and cringe, often added to some really serious moments which multiplies the cringe. The pacing is awful and this movie dragged. I will say the main cast tried their asses off but drowned under the shit script and honestly Black Widow deserved a way better movie than this. In the end, I don’t recommend this movie and I hope this was just a fluke because if this is the trend, the MCU is toast. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It - Wikipedia

In 1981, the Warrens, Ed and Lorraine, were exorcising a boy who was violently possessed. It was a powerful struggle, almost killing Ed in the process from a near fatal heart attack; the boy was saved with the help of his sister’s boyfriend Arnie who pleaded for the boy’s soul. The problem is, Arnie’s sacrifice may have had a darker outcome as he begins hallucinating and one day, he’s found on the side of the road, covered in blood. Arnie was indeed a killer but as Lorraine and Ed quickly begin to realize, this case is different: someone deliberately summoned this entity and it’s a race against the clock to stop them before a horrific curse is completed.

Conjuring 3 is definitely a mixed bag but without a doubt the weakest of the trilogy. The best thing this movie has is the chemistry between Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine, they give it their all and they carry the hell out of this movie. I like a lot of ideas presented. I like that the main antagonist is human and I like how the story tries to feel more like a detective thriller than horror movie. As a thriller the movie is decent but this is lousy horror movie. If James Wan had directed it, I feel it could have been better. There were too many times I laughed my ass off when it was supposed to be serious, either because of a bad jump scare, lame visual, or a goofy line. The movie felt slow, despite the over the top effects and dumb moments. In the end, I hope this is the last Conjuring and the universe can close because the Conjuring universe is just killing itself with mediocrity and this movie is just meh.

Evil Dead: The Musical

Evil Dead (musical) - Wikipedia

Have you ever watched the classic Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn and wished Ash and the Deadites broke out into song? Well, good news, there is a legitimate musical. Evil Dead: The Musical recounts Evil Dead 1 and 2 as well as pieces of Army of Darkness in a jaunty, goofy, and damn infectious musical. Seriously, once I began watching I couldn’t stop. The music is cheesy but lovable and some of the most catchy I’ve heard in a few years; for days on end I listened until I could sing along with such toe tappers as ” Do the Necronomicon”, ” What the Fuck was that”, “Join Us- featuring a singing Canadrian Demon Moose”, and “Housewares Employee”. I laughed, I bopped along with the talented cast who you can tell loved the material, and even cheered at the inventive, gory demon scenes. In the end, this is way more fun and spirited than I thought it would be and absolutely deserves betting checked out. May the Canadrian demons bring you glory.

Candyman trailer 2

While I started really , really hyped for this particular remake, a few things about this trailer bother me. I’m really hoping the Candyman’s origin won’t be changed too much and some of the imagery, outside the puppet trailer look iffy. I’m really hoping for the best here but I’m cautious now. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Karen trailer

We really did it, didn’t we. Oh no, we really did it. Karen got a movie, and it’s not an outlandish comedy. It looks like somebody thought Karen needed an actual thriller…and oddly, it makes it funnier than if they went for a full comedy. Well, I do want to watch it and watch it I will try to. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora reveal trailer

So I find it super weird we got something about this game, something I didn’t know existed until E3 than that fabled Avatar 2 no one really gives a rat’s ass about anymore. Seriously, isn’t this series about a decade too late? Nothing about what I saw seemed great but the question is will the old fans still care after a decade of inactivity in the franchise? May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Cats (2019)

Cats (2019 film) - Wikipedia

Oh boy everyone…that’s basically all this review is going to sum up really. There is plenty to say and I feel WTF sums it all up really damn good. First of all, I actually like musicals and I respect Andrew Lloyd Weber for making something this bizarre in the first place; I’m sure we’ve heard the stories of Cats 2019 and are wondering how true they are. Is Cats a masterpiece or a bust?

So Cats primarily (we’ll get back to that) follows a abandoned cat who is left on the cold streets where she meets a host of other Gelical Cats who sing there way to a better life…

So yeah Cats is pretty much a dumpster fire as a film. Again, I respect the musical and as a stage show I think it works. If they made a animated adaptation I think it could have been better than this. Everyone is nightmare fuel to look at. The off-putting sensation you got from the trailer never goes away and during the more sensual dance numbers, I felt pretty creeped out; the dancing cockroaches made me shiver. This movie is full of truly talented people who feel really out of place here- Ian McKellen, Judy Dench, Idris Elba, and Rebel Wilson to name a few. While their presences are baffling, no one is this movie doesn’t try their ass off. Jennifer Hudson, despite the hideous effects, steals the show for me and she almost brought me to tears with her rendition of “memory”. The format of the story is fluid which hurts it; we get characters for a song, they disappear, rinse and repeat. While the characters look terrifying, the sets are great and again, I must stress this sincerely, the cast tries their asses off to make something out of this. In the end, Cats is a disaster that deserves to be seen to be believed, if not for the spectacle than to appreciate the work that went into it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
