I don’t know why Hollywood acts like making a decent movie based on a video game is the equivalent to a torture trap created by Jigsaw. After the complete bore that was Tomb Raider, the next Hollywood cash grab on the queue is Rampage. If you don’t remember Rampage, it was basically a game where a giant wolf, gorilla, and lizard destroy a bunch of buildings in various cities. So it took FOUR people to write a movie that makes its own plot irrelevant so fast, they could have just started the film at the last 30 minutes and it would have made just as much sense.
As fun as Ready Player One is, there is a very important message about living life and not letting your online persona define you because you never truly know what is real or fake in an online bubble. With that said, Ready Player One is easily the most fun I’ve had in the theater all year and I have a hard time believing the audience won’t enjoy it either.
Giant robots, Giant monsters, and at least one Chinese actress to identify with means the film’s target audience (China) should enjoy this. Pacific Rim Uprising excels in the bare minimum, as long as you aren’t asking too much of this film, you’ll enjoy it on your own time, but this is not something you need to run out to your theater to watch right now, save your money for Avengers like everyone else.
Tomb Raider is the most ‘meh’ films I’ve seen in years. I don’t even hate this movie, I just don’t care. It’s bland and generic in just about every way you can think of. How does this fair in the realm of video game films? Well, it’s better than Assassin’s Creed, however, I think I was more entertained watching Resident Evil: The Final Chapter which is NOT a good thing.
A couple of weeks ago while watching Black Panther, I saw the trailer for The Hurricane Heist and immediately thought “This is the dumbest thing I’ve seen in some time”. People at our screening started to laugh, others thought it was a joke. Jokes on us because the film is real so I went to see if this film is as bad as I thought and I was right.
As a person who loves 80s action films Hollywood just doesn’t make anymore and whose favorite comic book character is the Punisher, Death Wish is almost everything I could ask for in a modern action film. I predict another split among the critics and audiences are upon us. Critics will no doubt hate the film for what it represents but speaking for the audiences who saw this with me, it will be hard for you not to root for Willis in his search for vengeance against the thugs who wronged him and boy does he get his revenge.
et in the brutal frozen conditions of Newfoundland, Canada, our story begins with a logger named Joe Braven (Momoa) and his family. While trying to balance an honest living, struggling to take care of his father (Stephen Lang) and his declining health, Joe is inadvertently caught in the middle of a drug trafficking scheme gone wrong.
Scorched Earth is Carano’s latest project on VOD release. The Earth has finally had enough of mankind’s climate change and the planet has turned into a Mad Max wasteland. The two most valuable commodities in this universe are clean water and silver used for air filters. Believe it or not, despite living in a lawless hell hole, the worst thing you can do in this universe is illegally drive a car aka use fossil fuels. For those who dare use coal in the apocalypse, there is a bounty hunter by the name of Gage (Carano) who will take you in for a pretty piece of silver.
Thomas leads some escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet.

Anyone who makes it out alive will get answers to the questions that the Gladers have been asking since they arrived in the maze.
So I first heard of this from Mundanematt, someone out there made a 47-Minute, ‘Womanless’ cut of The Last Jedi and the media got apoplectic over this. The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit (aka The Chauvinist Cut) has made its way around the internet and when I first heard this was a thing, I giggled, some including many of the stars of the film took the piss at it and many didn’t think it was that big of a deal…except the media who lost their shit. The Washington Post, Huffington Post, Inverse, Slate, The Wrap, AV Club …the vitriol was off the charts about this…So I had to watch it.
