“Guardians Of The Galaxy” 17 Minute Sneak Peek Review

gotgimax

As you may know, I am extremely excited for Marvel’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy” coming up in just a few weeks. The trailers have been absolutely fantastic and it just looked like such a fun and unique movie from the studio. Not to mention that it’s also the movie that directly leads us into “Avengers: Age Of Ultron.” So yesterday, I attended a sneak peek event where I saw 17 minutes of the film in IMAX 3D. I was super excited to get more of a glimpse at what I will be seeing come July 31. After having seen the footage, words cannot describe how much higher my anticipation is for this film. It looks insanely good! Just a fair warning that this post will contain spoilers on what I saw, so be warned before continuing to read. Continue reading

July 2014 Movie Preview

After the awesomeness known as June 2014, I have high hopes for the month of July. There are several movies opening that I think have potential to be highlights of the summer or maybe even the year. Let’s go into what’s coming out.

July 2:

“Earth to Echo” – Based on the trailers and even the poster, this looks like a lazy ripoff of films like E.T. and The Goonies. I might give the movie a chance, but I feel like “Super 8” already did the job that this film’s trying to accomplish.

“Tammy” – I’m not a Melissa McCarthy fan, so I don’t plan on seeing this movie at all. I feel like I have nothing else to say about this, so let’s just move on. Continue reading

June 2014 Movie Report

We’ve just finished the month of June which continued the summer of awesome. It was the month for sequels and sci-fi blockbusters and, some more than others, the month succeeded. So now it’s time for me to say what I thought were the best and worst films of the month and rate each of the films I’ve seen. I haven’t seen every movie released this month, but I’ll go back and edit once I do.

Best:

I’ve raved about it for a long time, I’ve seen it twice, and it’s still my favorite film of the summer. “Begin Again” is not just a great comedy about music, but it is a truly honest movie with a great emotional punch that feels tangible and real. The terrific performances by the ensemble cast and the soundtrack that I’ve been listening to ever since it was posted on Spotify are just a couple of the film’s many highlights. Definitely seek it out as it expands within the coming weeks.

Box Office: “Transformers” Made A Bunch Of Cash

The box office results are in and it looks like “Transformers” ain’t going away for a long, long, long, long, LONG time.

Paramount is suggesting that the “film” made $100 million over the 3 day weekend, but BoxOfficeMojo.Com suggests that “the actual number is around $98 million (or lower).” That would put it as the second highest opening weekend for the franchise behind “Revenge Of The Fallen,” ($108 million). Long story short, “Transformers” is here to stay no matter how bad this new movie was and chances are, Paramount’s getting the cash lined up for Michael Bay to return. Continue reading
