Yup, that’s right folks. What had been in the news for quite some time (almost a year now) has now been confirmed. After that little teaser Ben Affleck shared with everyone only a couple of weeks ago many speculated that it was only a matter of time before we got news of who would be in the suit as Slade Wilson. DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns confirmed the casting in an interview in which he discusses his role overseeing Warner Bros DCEU franchise.

Manganiello, has been a fan favorite for the casting so it is not surprising that the news is met with mostly positive reception. The groundswell of expectations is rising quickly for Affleck’s standalone Batman film (which he is also the director of) and with this casting it is sure to put even more eyes on the project. I don’t think I can wait for the first action reel putting the two adversaries against each other for the first time on film, but I’m sure my patience will be rewarded when the film is finally released.

underworld-blood-wars

The new trailer for the next chapter of the Underworld franchise has been released and it’s looking great.

Blood Wars has a new battle between the vampires and lycans. With Selene (played by Kate Beckinsale) fueled with a personal vendetta, she will stop at nothing to see what is right.

Underworld: Blood Wars hits theaters January 6, 2017.

Gene Wilder (June 11, 1933 – August 29, 2016)

Mr. Gene Wilder has left the building folks.

Gene Wilder

The actor known for this roles in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, and The Little Prince to name a few, passed away yesterday due to complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was 83.

Wilder had been diagnosed three years prior and wanted to keep his condition private. His nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, stated the reason “more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka,” would not have to be exposed to an adult referencing illness or trouble and cause delight to travel to worry, disappointment or confusion. He simply couldn’t bear the idea of one less smile in the world.“.

Lights Out: This Summer’s Scare

Martin is experiencing a horrifying apparition every time the lights are out in his home. He tries to convince and ask for help from his mom, but doing so he is told to go to back to bed. His grades and sanity are jeopardized because of his night time scares, and his older sister tries to take custody over him when his mother doesn’t pick him up from school. We find out that his sister has been having these troubles in her past as well. The apparition the two are seeing has come from their mothers past an torment their family.

As soon as the movie starts, you get the jump scares. The jump scare scenes are actually disturbingly creepy although pretty well done. We get mannequins for the first jump scare, and it doesn’t disappoint. There are really only two scenes that really scared me. I was only anticipating the scare and the characters trying to protect themselves from the apparition.

Now the plot was pretty fast paced. We get an explanation of the monster and the relation to the characters back-story in 3 scenes and we get the characters trying to figure out how to stop the creature for the rest of the film. The pacing of the story was pretty good among the jump scares. The creature was not designed very well, however, she had a grudge kinda look and an obscured face with only glowing eyes showing. That’s a lazy kind of design right there if you ask me. Another problem I have is that the movie feels rushed. We did get everything we needed for the movie, but it just felt really short which is not a bad thing. It was well done however; it had nothing new to put out to the horror genre.

Lights out gets 3 out of 5

+ exceedingly creepy ideas put to scare

+ gave the creature purpose and backstory

+setup is creepy

-needed more plot and character development

– feels rushed

-something more interesting needed to be added

Sausage Party: Scar You for Life

The R- rated animated film that no kid should ever see… or anybody who has any sanity left. Sausage Party is about a world of processed food items living their cushy lives until they finally get picked by the gods, (which are humans). To be taken to the other side (which is outside the grocery store) which they were told that they will be taken to a better place. However their world is turned upside down after Frank (Seth Rogan) learns the truth about going to the outside. After warning the grocery store and his pals, he must devise a plan to escape the humans.


Jumping into this movie I’m not going to lie, I did do some research on spoiler free YouTube reviews. What I got from it is that, this movie was supposed to parody Disney and Pixar movies. Low and behold it did. Now, I may be crucified for typing this but, this movie was not as bad as many (such as myself) thought it would be. Let me start with the good, the highlight of this movie is the jokes. And holy cow are they done well. There was a lot of raunchy sex, religion, stereotype, and rape jokes, a lot of pop culture references that made the jokes make sense in the movie. The jokes were done very well.

A lot of the characters were also themselves puns for the jokes in the movie. There’s a lot I can say about the jokes that fit into the movie. The Villain, was also the highlight of the movie. I can’t say a lot about him without spoiling the movie but, his character literally is a ‘joke’ he’s written and his voice actor did a fantastic job. Now, the animation is pretty decent. It’s not hideous (Only the humans are cg’d pretty hideously) every single detail made into the characters, the backgrounds are bright and pleasing for every situational scene made. The only animated scene that was visually unlikable was the “certain” CRINGEY scene you get at the end. I’m just gonna say this, that scene really didn’t need to be in this movie at all. Overall, the only thing that didn’t set well with my stomach was that scene and other cringe scenes. I think that scene was the only thing that was keeping people from watching it. This movie wasn’t bad, just don’t expect to see food the same way again.

Sausage Party gets 3.5 out of 5

+ The jokes were amazing

+ The twist at the end was great

+ Very entertaining if you turn off your brain

-Not for everyone

– The cringe scene was real

– Sometimes the jokes ran on too long

Doctor Strange Teaser Trailer is Here!

Doctor-Strange-Logo-LightYesterday Marvel blessed us with our first real look at Doctor Strange. With all the hype over Captain America: Civil War, many forget that this movie could be a real eye-catcher with Benedict Cumberbatch in the leading role as Stephen Strange. But that’s enough for now. Just check out the trailer (and some cool new posters) if you haven’t already.

Though the PR train hasn’t hit full steam yet, some argue it doesn’t need to. Marvel may be a big enough name to carry this movie through at this point. No doubt they’re banking on that being a good thing for this film.Doctor-Strange-posters Doctor Strange isn’t exactly what you’d call a household name. Let’s hope that changes a bit after the Sorcerer Supreme comes to theaters on November 4, 2016.
