Looks like Dolph Lundgren’s career has taken off again, I’m real proud of the man!

When Dolph Lundgren was young, he was one of the biggest names in Hollywood. He made his film debut in the James Bond film, “A View To A Kill” which was only a small role. That movie helped earned him a shot at “Rocky IV” in which he played one of the most iconic characters of all time: Ivan Drago. The man became a huge star after “Rocky IV”, he kept starring in bigger and bigger roles. After Rocky, Dolph earned his first leading role in a major film which was “Masters of the Universe” in which he played He-Man based on the famous cartoon series. Sadly, “Masters of the Universe” was a box-office failure but he will forever be known as He-Man. After that film, he did some pretty big action movies like “The Punisher” (based on the Marvel comic), “I Come In Peace”, “Universal Soldier” (a sci-fi action flick in which he starred with Jean Claude Van Damme, the movie was a box office smash), “Red Scorpion”, “Johnny Mnemonic” and other films. After all these movies, Dolph Lundgren suddenly disappeared from Hollywood.

Well, to be honest with you, Dolph never really has gone away. He kept making movies over the years but most of his movies were direct to Video/DVD films. He hasn’t starred in a big screen role again until Sylvester Stallone wanted him for the first “Expendables” movie. Ever since the first Expendables, it really does seem like Dolph’s film career has taken off and he’s a successful actor again after all these years.

After the first Expendables, Dolph starred in Expendables 2 & 3. After those movies, he continued to make Direct to DVD movies but in the year 2018, it seems that was a big year for Dolph in the movies. He starred in two HUGE roles in 2018: “Creed II” (in which he reprises his role as Ivan Drago) and now he’s the main villain in “Aquaman”. Two big movies in one year. Wow, incredible. Congrats Dolph!

I hope he gets more big roles in 2019 and he probably will. I think Dolph is an incredibly underrated actor and he totally deserves more recognition. Dolph is an actor who can play both the good guy and the bad guy very well! It seems that people has stopped caring about Dolph Lundgren over the years but I think he will win respect back after “Creed II” and “Aquaman” ’cause he did real good in those movies.

Some of you may ask, why does Dolph continue to act in straight-to-DVD movies more than big screen movies? Well, he tries to get big screen movies but for him, they’re hard to get. Dolph continues to make straight-to-DVD stuff ’cause he just wants to continue working, ya know? He just loves acting and loves making movies and he wants to keep at it. To me,  it seems like he doesn’t care whether or not a movie is big, he just wants to work. I think he’s a talented man and always liked watching his movies. I’ve watched a lot of his straight-to-DVD work and even some of those movies are good too.

It’s nice to see Dolph get recognized in Hollywood again. Will he get another big screen role in 2019? He probably will so we’ll have to wait and see. When “Expendables 4” happens, he’ll probably star in that one but I hope he stars in other big movies too. Dolph has always been one of my favorite actors.  Admired him for a pretty long time.

“Black Panther” doesn’t deserve the hype, “Aquaman” does!!!

So, I just saw DC’s superhero film “Aquaman” in the theater earlier today and wow. I was freakin’ blown away! Usually movies full of CGI are never my thing ’cause movies like that feel a bit too cartoonish for me but I can’t help but love “Aquaman”. I didn’t mind the CGI in “Aquaman” ’cause it worked for a movie like “Aquaman”.

I thought James Wan did an impressive job directing his first superhero film. This comes as a big surprise ’cause James Wan is mostly known as a horror film director. He did mostly horror films in his career but he’s starting to do action films more. He did an action film back in 2007 called “Death Sentence” which starred Kevin Bacon in the leading role so James is capable of doing some action movies and remember James directed Fast and the Furious 7 too.

This movie “Aquaman” was entertaining as hell all the way through, I wasn’t bored one bit. The film has an all star cast but I was most impressed with Jason Momoa and Dolph Lundgren, of course. Those two guys helped made the movie watchable. All the action scenes were a blast to watch and since James Wan is mostly known as a horror director, the film did had some horror elements here and there.

I was never a fan of the Aquaman character much but this movie makes me want to start reading Aquaman comics right now and I would like to start buying some soon. It’s a very cool character actually and Jason Momoa makes you want to like the character when you haven’t in the past.

I thought “Aquaman” was the best superhero of the year. Fuck “Black Panther”, man. “Aquaman” was 10x’s way better than “Black Panther”. When I was watching “Aquaman”, I felt like it was almost Star Wars underwater and that’s what it was pretty much. “Aquaman” was so impressive. People maybe getting sick and tired of superheroes movies yes but go see “Aquaman”. It’ll be a superhero movie worth seeing, trust me. I fucking loved it and definitely buying the BluRay when it comes out.

James Wan to direct “Aquaman” movie for DC/Warner Bros…

James Wan is mostly famous as a horror film director but look like he’s finally getting tired of horror films and wants to do different genres. He has directed a few action movies in his career with action films such as “Death Sentence” starring Kevin Bacon and he just directed “Fast & Furious 7”. Now he’s set to direct another action film which is gonna be the “Aquaman” which will star Jason Momoa in the leading role.

You can expect the “Aquaman” live-action movie to be full of water all over so there’s gonna be a lot of underwater scenes and above water scenes. That’s because I believe that Aquaman can only survive in water, I think he can survive outside of water but not for long. I don’t know much about Aquaman but I’m just doing a little googling on the character. He does have super strength and he can control all sea life meaning that he can control all sea animals like fish, sharks, whales, etc.

So I think this is gonna be an interesting movie and looking forward to seeing how James is gonna pull it off. Expect the movie to be full of CGI, though.

Zack Snyder reveals Jason Momoa as Aquaman for “Dawn of Justice/Justice League”…

Here is what former “Game of Thrones” star Jason Momoa looks like as Aquaman for the upcoming “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “The Justice League” films.

I love it! Zack definitely knows what he’s doing. To be honest, Jason still looks like his “Game of Thrones” character, Khal Drogo but meaner and tougher!!!

Can’t wait for “Dawn of Justice”!!!!
