The next 007 film is officially titled, “No Time To Die”…

Check out this cool little teaser revealing the title for Bond 25. It’s officially titled, “No Time To Die”. The title is giving you a hint that this will be the final Daniel Craig 007 film. Is the title hinting us that this film could be killing him off in this one? Could be, we’ll wait and see.

Anyway, I wonder who they’ll get to sing the title theme song for this one? I hope they pick a better theme song for this film ’cause I hated the Sam Smith theme for “Spectre”. While “Spectre” was an amazing film, I hated the opening title theme. Hopefully the opening title sequence for “No Time To Die” will be better.

I’m the biggest 007 fan you’ll ever see… I’ve seen all 24 films and I’ll be seeing this one too. Someday I’m gonna buy the 007 BluRay boxset with the 24 films in them, I really want that.

I’ve seen all the Daniel Craig 007 movies in theater when they first came out so you can betcha I’ll be seeing this one too.

“Rambo: Last Blood” looks like it’s gonna be an action packed ride and I can’t wait!!!

John Rambo may have gotten a haircut but he’s still the same old Rambo. He hasn’t changed a bit.

“Last Blood” looks like it’s gonna be an action packed thrill ride and I can’t wait. I’m also loving the Rambo flashbacks in this teaser and the Col. Trautman voice overs too.

I look more forward to this than Star Wars Episode 9. I’m there for “Last Blood” in Sept which is just a month away!

“Once Upon a Time In Hollywood”, a brief review…

So I saw Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood” in a movie theater at the Cape Cod Mall last week in Cape Cod, Mass. When I go on vacation like once a year, I like to try and go to the movies just to kill some time and stuff. I’m a huge Quentin Tarantino fan and I’ve seen all of his movies. Yes, I love them all including his newest one, “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood”.

It’s another winner for Tarantino, he did it again which didn’t surprise me. All of his movies are good and they never disappoint. “Once Upon a Time” is filmed in the similar format like all of his movies: different story lines in one film, almost 3 hours, the usual cool selection of music (which Tarantino is known for) and the film having a lot of dialogue.

This was an interesting movie ’cause it showed what life in Hollywood would have been like in 1969. It was nearing the end of the golden era in Hollywood. I remember in the beginning when this film was in development, Tarantino was going to make this film about the Manson family murders and this film turned out to be about that for a little bit. I was hoping the whole movie would be about the Charles Manson murders but it ended up being something totally different. Instead, the film mostly focused on how the Hollywood movie era was changing in 1969.

I was most interested in how the film depicted the life of Sharon Tate. While the cast of the film did a good acting job, I was most impressed with Margot Robbie who played Sharon Tate in the film. She did the best acting job, in my opinion and the appearance by Bruce Dern was cool too. Of course, Al Pacino is always a show stealer. Even though I think Brad Pitt and Leo Dicaprio are both overrated actors, I thought they were entertaining as hell in this movie.

This film was also funny as hell as it was also named a “comedy”… there were a few scenes in the film where I can’t help but crack out laughing especially the ending of this film. Tarantino always had a crazy and wacky sense of humor and he really showed that in this film for sure. There’s a mixture of genres in this film: drama, western, action, comedy and even a little bit of horror was thrown in the mix.

I don’t agree with Tarantino’s left-wing political views but he’s still a talented film maker and I wish he would keep making movies until he dies but he vows to retire at his 10th film which is disappointing. I’ve always been a huge Tarantino fan. I try to collect all his movies for my BluRay/DVD collection when I can and I’ll be definitely buying “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood” on BluRay for sure.

“Once Upon a Time In Hollywood” turned out be a really great film. Loved it a lot. You should see it too.

Sylvester Stallone shows video footage of him working on editing for “Rambo: Last Blood”… see a short scene from the film itself…

I love Sly’s instagram ’cause he shows a lot of really cool stuff about his past films and future films. I hate most celebrities on social media but Sly is the real deal. He’s okay with me.

Anyway, here is Sly the man himself in the editing room doing some pretty serious editing work for “Rambo: Last Blood”. I’m impressed with Sly’s work ethic when it comes to making films. Not only that he’s an actor, he’s way more than that. He’s a writer for most of his films and sometimes he directs films himself. Sometimes he serves as producer/executive producer as well and I believe he does his own editing too as you can see here.

Sly shows us a quick scene from “Rambo: Last Blood” where you see Rambo rescuing young girls from the sex traffickers hideout in Mexico. The more I see of this film, the more I’m dying to see it. I’m already feeling that this could end up being the film of the year. I’m happy that this film is sparking a lot of buzz, though. I’m still predicting it’s gonna be a huge box office hit. Can’t wait for Sept!

The “Top Gun: Maverick” teaser finally drops and it looks pretty amazing!!! I’m stoked to see it!!!

Since today is the first day of San Diego Comic Con, the “Top Gun: Maverick” trailer was shown there exclusively and now here it is online for all to see.

This is a very impressive trailer and I got goosebumps watching it. I know some of you out there may think “Top Gun” doesn’t need a sequel and I know some will be laughing about it but I think a “Top Gun” sequel will work. After you see this trailer, maybe you’ll agree now?

I’m a huge fan of the first “Top Gun” movie. I love it so freakin’ much and I can’t wait for this one. I had a feeling that it would be more like the first movie except the filming technology has improved it looks like.

No matter what your thoughts on Tom Cruise are, I bet you’re getting pumped for this movie. I know I am. I’m definitely gonna see it when it comes out for sure.

Enjoy!

Happy birthday to Sylvester Stallone!!!

Today is Sly’s birthday. As some of you know, I’m a lifelong fan of the man. Looked up to him ever since I was a child ’cause I was a huge Rocky fan when I was a child. Then the Rambo movies came and I was a huge fan of those. Still am a huge Rambo fan. I’ve seen most of Sly’s movies over the years. The only movies I haven’t seen of Sly were: “Reach Me”, “Backtrace”, “Escape Plan II” and “Escape Plan: The Extractors”. I’m gonna get around to those soon but I try to see everything he’s in even if the film isn’t good.

I am definitely looking forward to “Rambo: Last Blood” and can’t freakin’ wait.

I remember in the past, though, that people hated on Sly. That was back in the days when his career was in a slump, though. People didn’t think he would turn his career around again but look at him now. He’s a box office star again.

People laughed at him when he said he wanted Rocky 6 to happen “Rocky Balboa” (2006), I’ll never forget it. People in the media criticized Sly for wanting to bring back Rocky ’cause of Sly’s age and now look at him. Sly made three more Rocky movies since Rocky V… “Rocky Balboa”, “Creed” and “Creed II”. He definitely proved the haters wrong and I admire the man so much for that. Now everyone respects Sly again and haven’t seen anything negative said about the man in a long while.

People used to make fun of me for liking so Sly so much but I’m a huge fan, I don’t care what people say. I hate most celebrities but Sly is one exception. In real life, Sly seems like a good guy. He doesn’t carry around all this fame stuff like most celebrities do, he’s humble and he’s just a normal guy like all of us.

The man works really hard to entertain us. Some may not thinks so but Sly takes his work very seriously. He always tries to make the best movie possible. Making movies isn’t about the money for him either. He makes movies ’cause he loves it and that’s what he does.

Can’t wait for “Rambo: Last Blood” as I’m definitely gonna see it as soon as it comes out!

Thoughts on Justin Bieber vs. Tom Cruise fight, who do I think will win???

Well, I think Tom Cruise will win, of course. As you all should know by now Justin Bieber challenged iconic actor Tom Cruise to an MMA fight in the Octagon and requested Dana White to do it for them. I know Biebs is probably joking but who knows, maybe he’s actually pretty serious and this fight could end up happening for real. It’s gonna be interesting to see how Tom is gonna respond to this.

Some of you may ask, why would Biebs challenge Tom to a fight? Does he hate him? No. Not at all. I don’t think Biebs hate Tom at all as I think he’s probably a huge fan of Tom’s movies. Justin probably watched the “Jack Reacher” and “Mission Impossible” movies and thought it would be funny to challenge Tom to a fight.

Some of you may say, “Well, movies aren’t real and Tom really doesn’t know how to fight.” Oh yes he does! While Tom didn’t have any martial arts and MMA experience, he was a wrestler back in his high school years so he does know some “fighting” skills before Hollywood.

Look at the response in this post in Quora:

https://www.quora.com/Did-Tom-Cruise-have-martial-arts-training-early-before-filming-his-first-Mission-Impossible-film-1996

Movies maybe fake but since Tom wanted to do all of his own stunts, including all of the fighting… yes, all the fighting scenes he has done over the years in movies were all him. I’m sure he was trained by martial arts professionals and MMA coaches to learn how to fight for film so Tom definitely does have plenty of fighting experience in film.

I think everybody knows that. Maybe Biebs doesn’t really want to fight Tom at all, he’s just joking and stuff, ya know? I think this is just Biebs way of showing Tom respect for doing his own fighting in action films. People are finally starting to catch on about Tom doing his own stunts and people are finally starting to give him respect for it.

I’m pretty sure Tom will respond to this challenge. I’m sure he already heard about it. Will Tom accept and could it actually happen??? Who knows. I doubt it will ’cause Tom is a pretty busy guy and I’m sure he has better things to do like making movies. He’s still working on “Top Gun 2” right now, I believe. I’m sure Tom heard about that tweet Justin posted and I’m sure Tom had a good laugh about it. Hopefully Tom responds this week.
