Titans live action trailer

Teen Titans is my second favorite Dc animated show of all time; nothing is ever beating Batman: the animated series for me. And For all those wondering, Go can kiss my ass and call it ice cream. Well, this show can kiss my ass too. 99% of the time, I’m able to overlook bad trailers and drastic changes but the first trailer for live action Titans show pissed me off. Here’s why, because I don’t make this statement lightly.

First, DC hasn’t learned from one of it’s biggest mistakes in the overly dark tone of Batman Vs Superman , repeating it here in a series that sure as hell didn’t need it. The Titans have some dark stories but they aren’t this level dark, which having Robin say “Fuck Batman” isn’t dark, it makes him look like a emo brat. With the exception of Robin, the characters range from meh to damn right crappy. The effects aren’t great compared to things I’ve seen on the CW. What pisses me off so much is the Titans could make a good live action series or a movie, and the show proved it can serious but fun, not this. May the gaming gods bring you glory, and remember the real Titans.

Overlord trailer 1

The last few days I heard a lot about a movie called Overlord that I never heard of. Weirdly enough, I’ve gotten to a point where I expect to know something about every damn movie I come in contact with. This time I went in blind and I was gladly surprised. After Star trek (reboot) and Star Trek: Into Darkness as well as The Force Awakens I’m excited to see a R rated J.J Abrams movie. This trailer is awesome and I can’t wait to get something a little different this year. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Goosebumps 2 trailer 1

 

What can I say, I love Goosebumps with a passion. Well, the books and TV show at least. I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie so I wasn’t completely thrilled when I saw this trailer, but it’s here. I’m interested where a sequel will go, and it looks like we’re getting the fresh start approach which could be good. I’m not excited but it’s worth a look if you liked the first.

A simple favor trailer

Now when the name Paul Feig gets brought up, your mind goes directly to GhostBusters 2016, which sparked an idiotic amount of controversy and outrage. I have no prior knowledge of his work, but I’m intrigued by the trailer for hi latest, A Simple Favor. The premise seems basic, tried but true, but the music, tone, and retro elegance of Blake Lively’s costumes brought on a otherworldly quality I’m a sucker for. I love Anna Kendrick as an actress and I’m glad she’s rising up. I hope the Ghostbusters remake hasn’t scarred this film; I laughed a little at the opening of the trailer that states it’s from the “darker side” of Paul Feig. In the end, I hope it’s a redemption for the guy, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

“Glass” poster

glass poster This is going to be a little unusual because there is no trailer, but a poster tells alot. I’ve never been a huge M. Night Shyamalan fan but I loved Split and wanted to check out Unbreakable after the end credits scene, which I thought was merely a set up for a sequel. But a crossover? That I wasn’t expecting. I think it’s a cool idea and don’t get me wrong, I’m seriously hyped for this movie but let’s not ignore the elephant in the room: Shyamalan doesn’t have the greatest track record. The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs- all well loved and well received movies. But we also have After Earth, The Happening, and The Last AirBender which damaged his career. I’m cautiously optimistic in that regard because while I’m a huge fan of his work, I respect that he tries doing something different, especially in a world of reboots and sequels. I have my fingers crossed and I can’t wait for the trailer. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Predator, trailer 2

 

I came back on one hell of a good day; we got a really epic new trailer for the fourth Predator movie. I liked what I saw for the first The Predator, trailer 1 but I love the second trailer much more. The tone reminds me a lot of the first movie, including the crude joke on the bus. The Predators themselves look incredible. So far, I totally dig the story idea but as I stated in the last trailer review, I’m not a fan of the title of the movie but that’s just a weird hiccup from me. I’m excited as hell to see some badass action and some epic level gore this September, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Unfriended: the Dark Web trailer 1

Why is this a thing? I know we live in a digital age and there are plenty of opportunities for horror in that age but I give up when you have movies based off social media or Skype. I will say the second movie has a interesting premise and I’m glad it’s not a ghost story, but I can’t the trailer really wowed me. I’d watch it on Netflix or something like that but wouldn’t pay full for it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
