It’s no secret that the Big Time Studio Execs like to pray on people’s nostalgia. Sometimes it works in their favor, (Star Wars: The Force Awakes) and sometimes it fails miserably (Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, or the abomination that was the Jem & The Holograms movie). Hollywood’s newest offering is a new edition to the Jumanji franchise, which actually wasn’t a franchise, just a stand alone film, but there was money to made, so franchise it is. Click below to check out the first official trailer.
Opening weekend Cate and I went down to our fave NYC theatre (reclining seats yay) and took in DC’s latest offering to the Holy Trinity, Wonder Woman. I do not exaggerate when I say this film was DECADES in the making. For some reason The Powers That Be just didn’t believe a female led superhero movie could make money. After all Hollywood is first and foremost a business, and making money is the primary goal. Toss in the fact that this installment of Wonder Woman had a Female director, something not usually heard of for a big budget movie, let alone a big budget action movie, and there was A LOT riding on the success of this movie.
We’ve been bitten by the Live show bug. On Monday night we went live on Facebook and BOTH on Our Instagram account @allgeektomeradio AND Cate’s cosplay page @Starbuck_Cosplay . The full show is now available on our Facebook page, we’ve included the link to the show and a bunch of bonus links, just because we love you so.
Ok, if you are living in the good old United States, then you are probably aware that election day is fast approaching. So we thought it might be fun to list off our top five Presidential portrayals in TV and film, so here we go, in no particular order:
Earlier this morning DC released a new trailer for Winder Woman and I must say, despite my not really being on board with the DC films, it looks pretty bad ass. Click below to check it out!
The trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Logan was released earlier this morning. I have to admit, I tend to be wary of “Wolverine” movies, having been burned pretty bad by the last two attempts to give Hugh Jackman’s character a solo film, but well take a look at the trailer yourself.
