The trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2(delayed)

Yes, it is Friday. In case you are wondering we saw GotG V2 on opening weekend, I just was out of it this week. So yes, the trailer post is late, the movie review is late it's just a whole round mess. We are gonna get through this though.

Over there at the Malco Paradiso we got 5 trailers with Guardians, 3 sequels, on Tie in movie, and a period piece. The period piece looks crazy and depending on what else comes out around it I may or may not go see it but the other 4 are all on my list for 2017. Enough stalling, here are the five movies let me know what you are interested in.

The Trailers for Power Rangers(2017)

Yes, yes we went to go see the Power Rangers no it wasn't as fluffy as the after school TV show, we did enjoy it but of course the review comes later. This is the up and coming movies for the rest of the year, there were some animated numbers, we had a fantasy offering, a "kids/coming of age movie" but enough of the Jibba Jabba here are your trailers

The trailers for John Wick Chapter 2

Today is Eikichi's birthday so we had an early movie day. We went to see John Wick(and if you have Amazon video the first one is on sale for 5 bucks), I was a little late again(traffic and watching Legion, I apologize) so I didn't catch all the trailers and Smooth being who he is refused to tell me what he saw(cause taller siblings act like that). So for this Sunday February 12th of 2017 these are the trailers I got at my theater.

A fathers love and dedication will save the world

Alicia Marcus - an innocent little girl who develops a rare yet fatal disease: Progeria. She will not live a full life by the time she reaches the age of 25 she will look 70, her father James Marcus works diligently on a cure for her disease. But also in preparation for the worst begins recording her face, her voice and every waking moment to hold on to the memory of his beloved child. Just when he thought all was lost he discovered a cure the T-virus, it regenerates cells and at first appears to cure his daughter. Due to the discovery he begins the Umbrella Corporation with his friend Alexander Isaacs hoping to cure all disease. Unfortunately the T-virus had side effects, and they were deadly.

The Red Queen - the digital versions of Alicia Marcus created by Doctor Alexander Isaacs, she is the computer that runs all of umbrella corp her job is to protect humanity from T-virus outbreaks, as well as the staff of the umbrella corporation. She may look like an innocent little girl but she is ruthless, cold, and calculating. Her young angelic voice can often be heard saying "You're all gonna die down here" partially because she is stating an undeniable fact the T-virus outbreak is over running the world, and the other reason is because she is most likely releasing t-virus creatures to come and kill you.

Alice- She has been there since the first known widespread T-virus outbreak, due to her exposure in the initial outbreak her memories of her past have been destroyed. From the first she has been killing zombies for a long time 10 years, she has lost loved ones, friends, and seen many people die. She has been experimented on, cloned, given special powers by her exposure to the T virus, had them removed, had them given back but she is tired. All she does is kill T-virus infected zombies. When last we saw her she was in Washington DC involved in a last stand for humanity.

3 women all connected by the T-virus, one the reason for it's creation, the other it's tireless observer, and the last a warrior fighting against inevitability. The T-virus was spread by the speed of the modern world:Trains, planes, and cars if you are infected with the T virus, especially the early strains you are most likely going to die and when you do you will become a zombie, flesh craving, undead trudging on to kill the remaining members of humanity who's rolls you just left. The Umbrella corporation created a

Resident Evil and this is it's Final Chapter

The Trailers for Resident Evil The final chapter

Due to a series of extremely unfortunate but hilarious events I got to the movie theater later than expected. No seriously it was like something out of a cartoon

  • I couldn't find the car keys
  • I had to give the dog water
  • I get to the gas station because I was on E, I got the slowest teller ever
  • I get behind a car and even though no one is in front of him 10 miles under the speed limit
  • Did I mention he finally sped up when I went to pass him
  • I go to park and somebody can't decide if they want to leave or stay
BUT I got there, I made it in time to see a few of the trailers before the movie(probably would have seen them all if I sacrificed my blue and red but traditions must be upheld) and here I am to tell you what I saw and what I thought about them. So without further adieu I made it in time to catch 3 trailers and they were as follows

Here we go Again

It's another movie night, I am about to head to the theater to watch HOPEFULLY Resident Evil, the final chapter. Resident Evil is a special little conundrum it is based on a video game(mostly) and yet the type of video game it is based on is based on Zombie survival horror which is of course a type of movie. I have often said one of the reasons that RE hasn't been as lackluster as other video game movies is because Zombie Horror is something people know how to do, yes you have to add in crazy looking enemies, mutated dogs, and weird horse/bull looking things but it's still the undead chasing living people around who just want to make it to another day. They have used various characters from the game Ada Wong, Chris Redman, the Nemesis, Wesker, and of course Alice. It plays well because you get to see your favorite characters damn near die or die (depending on who you liked in the movie) but at least go out in a blaze of glory.

They have waded their way through 5 movies(not unlike Underworld) and have decided to let their crew go out in a blaze of glory in one final mega battle. This doesn't mean they can't do another Resident Evil movie later, but they retired Alice around 5 in the games I think, had Chris in more of them as well as showed random other characters. So while you may lose your T-virus power Super Zombie killer you can still have folks who are pretty good at fighting off Zombies and getting to the end versus whoever the Big Boss is.

All I want is your blood

Selene, Death Dealer former member of a vampire coven and amongst their elite. She is also a lover, to Micheal Corvin a hybrid heir to Corvinus blood line which spawned both Vampire and Werewolf. She is a mother, though robbed of much of the journey of Motherhood due to a werewolf faction actions in Underworld Awakening, to Eve the FIRST pure blood Hybrid ever born. Her life has always been war, from the time her family was killed by Lycans(or so she thought). To her time as a Death Dealer, to trying to protect her love Micheal, and saving her daughter Eve.

Hunter

Hunted

Traitor

Survivor

But like all warriors, even immortal ones, the constant state of battle is wearing on her. Her lover Micheal is missing, after the events of Underworld Awakening while she has found her daughter, she lost her love. And because of the seductiveness of Hybrid blood, especially PURE HYBRID blood it is too dangers for mother to be near or with her child so even her child that she barely knows is lost to her. All she has, is running and for a predator running is no way to live.

Trailers for Underworld: Blood Wars

Welp I made it to the movies on time, huzzah as such my movie was of course underworld review to come in 2 days. I got 5 trailers with Blood Wars a decent smattering of genre's and I also got to see that SOMEBODY forgot when springtime started because Sleepless is out in theaters now but the trailers all said spring(unless somehow someway the MIDDLE of January became Springtime).

As for this set of trailers 3 could count as sci fi, one counts as a Video Game movie, 2 count as monster movies, 3 can count as Horror movies, and 2 are newbies I never heard of before with interesting looking casts. I know some of yall are doing the math saying, "he said 5 trailers, how he get so many of each type?" Mainly because a lot of these movies are cross genre and as such you could go see them as a few different types of fan. But without further adieu the first trailer after the jump

Out for blood

So I decided to head on out to the movies solo, Eikichi isn't in the mood to see my first choice  (blood wars), and of course why waste time hoping for the second choice. He sucks but I understand, movie starts at 7:30 if  I make it in time, otherwise back ups will be Sleepless and Triple X 3:return of Xander Cage.

I'd prefer my first choice because I want to know how the series ends, at least I think this is the end. Two 3 plus years hiatuses I think everyone is tired of doing this franchise.

Welp I made it to the theater, let's pay my 11 bucks and get it on.

I think we can all agree, the third movie is always the worst

This tongue in cheek exchange between Scott Summers and Jubilation Lee(yes, I know her ACTUAL full name, not just what they call her. Granted as she is a vampire now I may mumble it under my breath minus Blade's gear) as they walk out of Return of the Jedi may prove to be a bridge to far. It's meant as a shot at X-men: The Last stand, but if these box office numbers hold it may also apply to the THIRD in the period X-men movies. From the initial "Not a reboot" of the X-men movies they have been taking a story arc/graphic novel from famous X-men lore using it as the movies title and then warping the Teams, story lines, and driving forces to try and tell more cohesive and compelling X-men stories. In X-men first class, we were introduced to The Hellfire Club, Emma Frost, and Sebastian Shaw. Well technically RE-introduced to Ms. Frost because for WHATEVER reason she as a young girl was in X-men Origins:Wolverine, with her Diamond powers instead of her telepathy, because:to hell with continuity. First Class took place during the 60's and the Cuban Missile crisis, with Charles Xavier, Eric Lenshurr, and Raven Darkholm amassing a team of potential young mutant hopefuls trying to learn how to use their powers, and Stop Sebastion Shaw from ushering in WW3.

In X-men Days of Future Past we are shown a Dystopian future where due to a decision made by Mystique in the past, all mutants are damn near exterminated. This one is the CLOSEST parallel to the comics, and also the best received. As we all know MOST marvel stories are huge crossovers which basically have characters bumping into each other, causes chaos that someone else has to clean up, read about, or at least be inconvenienced by every day or so. The funny thing is, Fox actually owns the rights to Fantastic Four and COULD have done a more faithful adaptation, but the one they did is fine. Yes they send Wolverine Back instead of Kat(no longer Kitty) Pride, and there is no Rachel Summers, but since Wolverine is as old as dirt it's not a bad idea to use him for your period movie as the Time traveler PLUS it gives you a look into who Logan was while he was staying as far away from other mutants.

And now we have Apocalypse

The Trailers for X-men: Apocalypse

It was a weekend of a major movie premier so me and HALF of my siblings went, somebody had a baby to watch. Oh well. Now while TWO movies came out Friday night but I only went to one(and as Ninja Turtles comes out next week the other May 27 movies may have to wait til video), and while I don't think I ever owned the T-shirt you know I always Make Mine Marvel. So I went to go see another "new continuity" X-men movie, as you may have heard these seem to be period pieces now. First Class was the 60's, Days was the 70's, and Apocalypse takes place in the 80's.

BUUUUUT before every movie you get trailers to tell you what movie you SHOULD be coming to see in the next few months so that the theaters and Hollywood need them duckets. X-men Apocalypse had 5 trailers, some I had seen Elsewhere, one Marvel Trailer, and a few I had already seen. I know I am a day late with this(I usually do it the day of, but I was really close to prestige 2 on CoD so ahem yeah I did that) but without further ado here we go

The Trailers for Captain America:Civil War

On this fine Friday evening we got 5 trailers, from all over the spectrum of movie delights. Some remakes, some new offerings, some sequels but all before Captain America:Civil War. Most of these trailers I have seen on youtube so I will dig them up for you and as always give my thoughts as to whether or not I think the movies will be worth seeing and if the trailers intrigued me at all.

In case you ever wonder I put them in order of appearance, not worst to best, favorite to least favorite or vice versa. How ever they came at me while I was in my seat is how I give them to you. So without anymore stalling(because at this point it really is becoming stalling), your movie trailers:

After the shortest post ever

Yup Tonight was Movie night, the reason the previous post is so short simply is the battery on my phone was dieing. So I clicked out a few quick words, threw some labels on it and BOOM posted it before the phone shut off on me. So yeah due to circumstances beyond anyone's control it was two not four enjoying civil war tonight, what can I say flat tires suck Donkey Balls. SO yeah Eikichi missed out, which means I have to be on a 24 hour hold about talking with him about the movie, afro is a great movie buddy but he kind of likes to enjoy the movie and then move on to something else.

So yes, a trailer blog will be popping up shortly. Sometime Sunday evening or Monday morning the review blog will be hitting your screens and after that who knows I may go see it again as well as do a month later full of spoilers. I haven't decided yet, I just know that I am in a great mood. Marvel just knocked another one out of the park and one of my favorite comic book characters stole the show, like he is supposed to. By the way, IF you are going to see Civil War STAY TIL THE VERY END. Yes it's cheesy but it is so worth it

About to enjoy the War

It's not a perfect movie night, it's seems Eikichi got a flat tire and won't make it. Sucks but me and Afro are in the theater I have my civil war cup, my hot dog and my blue and red slush.

Trailers for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

After the total fail of Friday nights movie going attempt I used my fandango app to go ahead and buy us 3 tickets to see DC's latest offering, and hilariously enough somehow DC got TWO Marvel Previews before their movie. Now I am slightly upset that I still haven't seen any teasers for Doctor Strange but I guess I'll just have to wait til the heart of Summer movie season, I mean it comes out in November yall can't hold on to it much longer. Since we didn't go until Saturday night I will have to rush through the review on Monday(cause I have a jobby job). You got 5 trailers before Batman v Superman, Warner Bros got two in there, Marvel got two in there and then well let's stop stalling.

X-men: Apocalypse

20th Century Fox's SECOND Marvel movie this year, their first one is a smash hit(lol) and this one hopes to follow in it's footsteps. It is suspected that the first mutant was born thousands of years ago, and that people treated him as a God. He had 4 horseman that traveled with him everywhere, and he believed that ONLY the strong should survive. Charles Xavier now has a new class of mutants, that he has been training to help protect the world, but he was searching for man made or mutant threats not Godlike ones. Can Charles Xavier and his students possible defend the world from this awesome power as well as a few old friends, and possibly some new ones.

I made it a double(2/22/12)

Tuesday night since I had access to a vehicle, was off work on the early side and had a few shekels to rub together decided to hit the movies. This won't seem to new or out of the ordinary for most folks who read in 2010 or 2011 since I went to the movies almost every week. Unfortunately my normal movie viewing destination has closed and my old Friday habit of hoofing it the 10-15 minutes it was to make it there for the last show is no more.

So I went to the Paradiso, a Malco Theater(one of these days I'll take a pic of the sign) and decided to take in Ghost Rider:Spirit of Vengeance. And as I got out around 9:30 I decided "hey why not go ahead and watch Safe House too, just in case my brothers Welch on movie outings again."  I wasn't paying attention but GR was in 3D and I don't know about the rest of the glasses wearing movie public but the glasses over my glasses always give me mild eyestrain and a slight head ache. It was much worse during the old "blue and red paper throw aways" days, now its not every but a few GR falling into the few category. So i forked over my 12 buck(my poor wallet) and sat through the flick, got 5 trailers, that blog coming soon, and watched the movie. Review MAY be coming later, afterwards since a showing of Safe House was coming up within a few minutes I hopped back in line a paid for my ticket(don't give me that*yeah right* look I actually have the stubs to prove it) and enjoyed the 9:30ish showing of Safe House. I got 5 trailers with each movie I'll try and get those in today and possibly clean my review slate up for at least 2012.

If you aren't having a good week so far, hey it's Thursday tomorrow night begins the weekend

--------------------------------------

I know Spirit of Vengeance pretty much buried the series, I forget if I did a review for it or not but I hated how they just tossed aside the Penance Stare it was awesome in GR. I understand that they wanted to show a little more conflict in SoV but you don't change what works. Safehouse was interesting, Ryan and Denzel put in good performances. I am cleaning out my drafts folder and this is turning out to be pretty fun. As I go through and show off either old blogs or old "blogs in the making" you will get a better idea of where I start or how I go about writing, I can tell you most of it is chaos, I will ask you to forgive my spelling errors in these throw back posts because I do that at the end and of course these are as is(thus why you got the blank "we are the core" Blog)

Trailers for: DeadPool

It's been a while, an I think I even have one of these in draft and make break it out for throwback Thursday, for those new here this is how this goes: I give you a clip of the trailer, tell you what I think about it, say whether or not I'm interested in seeing it(and if my brothers were at the movies with me their thoughts on if they wanted to see it), and then I move on. Now I don't know if the Dolby Atmos trailers were different than the regular trailers, but these are the ones we got down here in my viewing in the midsouth.

This doesn't mean I'm doing a review of Deadpool, it's just means I'm gonna give a trailer summary and a yeah or meh.


but without further adieu

Trailers for 2/12/16:

Trailers for Chronicle

Wrath of the Titans

As a sign of ULTIMATE AWESOMENESS for this movie the official site didn't want to work for me, yup that's right, they have a site, it is up and I can't see anything but the 3D advertisement for Divx. I'm not big on this movie only because the premise and the name sound a whole lot like the Percy Jackson
series of books. The basic premise as shown in the trailer is that the Gods are losing their powers and the Titans are returning, so since the Gods can not do it they need the Demi Gods lead by Perseus to defend the world against their assault. SO Perseus once again grabs IO and a rag tag bunch of other demis to show the Titans what for and hopefully save the day, because by being half human the demigods may be stronger then they think.

Now yes I know it took all 5 books for them to get up to the actual God+Demigod vs Titan War, but it was still the Gods plus their DemiGod children versus the Titans, and oh what do you know there is a son of Poseidon on the quest too. The trailer looks to have a lot of action in it, many people did not receive the first movie too well but it did make enough to warrant a sequel so this one might do well, I just think they should have found a different premise. They are other quests the could have undertaken, I mean Perseus is a son of Zeus couldn't they have him undergo some kind of trials of Hera, could he have assembled the Demigods on a quest to restore humanities faith in the Gods? I liked the first one I will probably like the second one, that just sticks in my guy a little that it seems that ripped off the running plot from a teen fiction novel minus a few character and plot points that would have been chopped down in the movie anyway(as a lot of them were chopped down in Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief) but enough going off on this movie, it's only one of the trailers I saw Wednesday night(yeah yeah I got side tracked).

21 Jumpstreet

Ladies and Gentleman I like Channing Tatum, I like Jonah Hill(I still need to see The Sitter), and as both a rap and movie fan Ice Cube is the man, I hate this movie. No I'm not giving it a chance, I'm not saying this because I was a huge fan of the show, meh it never really appealed to me even with Holly Robinson in it and Johnny Depp. The show looked interesting but the movie looks like a train wreck waiting to happen, it's almost like the said "hey we have this old TV show that did kind of okay, and while we haven't had much luck with movie to TV translations at all why not brush the dust off this one and give it a shot?" I am not saying the premise is unbelievable, I know plenty of people with young faces who could pass for high school students, I know plenty of places where some intervention may be needed when it comes to curtailing the flow of designer drugs in the schools, and I am sure the police would love to have some eyes and ears inside. Unfortunately the Hollywood approach is making this movie a farce, I don't buy either of these guys as high school students.

And the worst part about it is JONAH HILL IS FAMOUS FOR PLAYING A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT, hello SUPERBAD that's where I first saw him, dude was hilarious he sold the kid who was amongst that whatever percentage of people who drew pictures of big veiny penises. And it introduced us to McLovin(come on twitter you know how many times you have used McLovin as a TT) come on now how can you take a guy who has the whole awkward outsider thing on lock, straight typecasting no matter what he tries and turn him into a joke in his signature role. And Channing Tatum is playing a jock role, that should be a cake walk too and he looks ridiculous, how could you screw that up? I mean how can you take two people who should easily be able to handle the roles and at least in the trailer make it completely un-entertaining, that has to be a talent, a skill, you had to mean to do that. Jonah's movie The Sitter had me dieing to see it, I just didn't get a chance, yes I called it "Adventures in Babysitting the redux" as a compliment, that was one of the movies that was a cult hilt when I was younger. It was that type of silly, mindless, unexpected fun that create cult classics so them remaking it isn't a bad thing in my mind nor something in that same vein.

Oh yeah the premise of the movie:two young undercover officers are sent to 21 Jumpstreet to go undercover in a high school to find a new designer drug that is making it's way around the campus. They get into ridiculous hijinx as they have a hard time fitting in as high school has changed so much in the few short years since they graduated.

The Hunger Games

Katniss Everdeen is a child of The Seam, the 12th district on the outskirts of the Capitol. Everyday she climbs under the fence to hunt with her long time and partner Gale but today is a special day it is the day of the Reaping. Today all children between 12-18 will be gathered together and 1 boy and 1 girl will be selected to enter the Hunger Games. The hunger games is a gladiatorial contest where 24 children a boy and girl from each district fight for survival in a tournament for the pleasure of the Capitol. For Katniss this year was the worst ever her sister 12 year old Prim was selected, each year you get one entry and somehow against all the odds Prim's name was selected and the only way Katniss can save her is to volunteer in her place. And now Katniss has to enter the Hunger games and hope to survive against all odds with a boy who she must kill but really doesn't want to.

I loved the books and I hope to love the movie to. As I have already done a review of the Book I don't want to mix the two together so I am gonna leave it off here, I can't wait to see this movie and hope it can at least capture the heart of the books.

3 Stooges

This movie follows the Hijinx of Larry, Moe and Curly 3 brothers who were left on the steps of an orphanage as children and are now out making their ways in the world as grown men. Yes this is the movie adaptation of the Slapstick comedy troupe from the 1930's-1960's, unfortunately reading the synopsis they are getting sucked into the reality craze I was kind of interested in seeing this movie but the trailer and the synopsis killed it for me. Hell color me crazy but the whole "to save the orphanage where they grew up" plot sounds a lot like the original Blues Brothers, without the good music or the funny.


Prometheus

They went out looking for our beginning and what they found may be our end. Prometheus is a prequel/reboot of the Alien series once again we are about to find facehuggers, spitters and aliens on a distant barren world. In space No one can hear you scream

The Sleeper has Awakened

In the past their battles had been in the shadows, Lycan versus Vampire. While humans had been the prey of both only those directly encountered knew the truth, either those humans who came in contact with one or the other were turned or slaughtered their deaths blamed on wild animals or roving bandits. Tales of Vampires and Werewolves(the human name for Lycans) ghost stories to scare children. Now the modern world knows, they do exist and an all out hunt for both sides has begun, the former Death dealer Selene the vampire and her Hybrid lover Michael Corvin heir to the Corvinas blood line have decided to escape and run for safety. They are hunted by both sides Michael by the Lycans because they believe his hybrid blood can strengthen their ranks and turn the tide against the Vampires and Selene because she has killed two elders and betrayed her Coven.

As Selene looks over a rooftop and sees vampires being slaughtered she has a rendezvous at the pier to make her escape with Micheal to evade the chaos being caused by marshal law. The humans are killing without quarter or mercy, united against the monsters that go bump in the night no longer do they assault each other the Vampires and the Lycans must be eradicated. A door opens behind her and an armed human approaches her demanding she turn herself in, his death is swift she has been killing

The Trailers for Underworld Awakening

John Carter

An arena in some desolate location two beings are brought into an arena filled with a blood thirsty crowd. One is a tall, green, four armed alien, the other is an athletic man with scruffy brown hair, they are chained to a rock in what seems to be some sort of punishment/execution. A 6 legged beast is let loose and the brown haired man jumps at least 10 feet in the sky and moves like lightning. He lands grabs and weapon and slays the beast in one blow, his name is John Carter he is a stranger to this world but it will not beat him. It seems John Carter is from Earth but found his way into some strange new world, John has landed in the middle of a war, that he did not start but he seems fully equipped to end. The green four armed aliens may have thought they had a captive, but now they know they have a Champion.

Ghost Rider:Spirit of Vengeance

Johnny Blaze is a former stunt rider who lives with a curse, no not alcohol, drugs, or women no his curse is the spirit of the Devils Bounty hunter, the Ghost Rider, who is locked within him and pulling at his very soul. Johnny has sacrificed a lot to bear the spirit of the rider and keep the devil from using him to hurt innocents but now he faces a big challenge. The devil is looking for a new form in the body of young Danny Ketch, and if the rider doesn't save him he will become the Anti Christ. So once again on his Hell Bike the rider is coming, and all those in his path will know no mercy, they will feel wrath, they will feel pain, they will know penance and they will suffer vengeance.

Resident Evil: Retribution

I want to say I love this trailer, it isn't long it starts off looking like a Smart phone commercial and ends with Alice kicking major butt as she fights off the zombie hoards and takes the fight to the Umbrella corporation(AGAIN). It seems that a lot of the characters from the game(in the actual outfits) were shown in this trailer. Oh I did find the "Official Sony Site" here, I guess since it doesn't come out til Sept they haven't really fleshed it out yet. Hoards of zombies and zombie hybrids, Alice and her friends and lots of innocent humans trying to escape and lead a normal life. Unfortunately when the rest of the world is full of zombies, exactly what is normal anymore?
