Arnold Schwarzenegger should get Oscar nomination for his role in “Maggie” and I really mean that!!!

Well I finally got around to watching the movie “Maggie” starring Arnie and Abigail Breslin. It was a really good movie too. It’s definitely one of the best movies released this year and I also think it’s Arnie’s best acting role. I really think Arnold should get Oscar nominated for his role in this film ’cause he did a good job with his acting in this film. You know how in most movies that Arnie’s acting wasn’t all that good? He’s more of an entertainer than an actor? Well, he really showed his acting chops in this movie and this movie proved that he can act really good! The reason is ’cause this is a different role for Arnold. He doesn’t play a typical tough guy & badass like he does in most of his movies. In this movie, Arnold is more serious and more real.

Yes, this film is a zombie film indeed but it’s not like the “Walking Dead” at all. You’re gonna see a different kind of zombie movie. Yes, in “Maggie” there are still some pretty scary scenes but this film mostly focuses on the story. It’s a more serious story. “Maggie” can be a bit slow pacing movie but that’s what I like about it. The movie can get pretty sad and intense at times. This movie is about a young girl who is infected by a virus and while she is being sick & has time to live her father stays by her side and supports her… the virus turns people into flesh eating zombies. While Maggie still has time, Arnie’s character, Wade Vogel refuses to quarantine his daughter and he wants to take care of her before she turns.

Like I said, this is no typical zombie film… you’re not gonna see “The Walking Dead” and you’re not gonna see George Romero at all. If you’re expecting those kind of zombie movies with this film, then you might be disappointed.

I really was impressed with Arnie’s acting in this film, he did an incredible job. This movie can get really sad though so if you watch this better have a box of kleenex nearby for sure. I’m thinking about re-watching it again later tonight ’cause it really was that damn good. I rented it through Netflix DVD. I think I’m definitely gonna buy it on BluRay too.

You should definitely check this one out.

Film Review: “Terminator: Genisys”.

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke

Directed by: Alan Taylor

Earlier this afternoon, I have just seen “Terminator: Genisys” and here is my review…

Plot/Synopsis: When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…

As a huge Terminator fan, I would have to say this Terminator movie was very disappointing. Even Arnold coming back to the famous character couldn’t save it. The only good thing about it was the action and Emilia Clarke who is an actress who I like. The plot was kind of silly and I think it was loaded with plot holes all over. Plus I thought the movie was badly casted for the most part. This film is neither a reboot or a remake but instead, I look at it as a continuation of “T-2: Judgement Day”. It’s just a typical Terminator movie with lots of action and special effects.

The only reason they did the aging Terminator storyline was so they can give an excuse for an aging Arnold Schwarzenegger to return. The action was fun but like I said, it was the only good thing about the film. I just wish it would be better ’cause this film was kind of a let down, in my opinion. It’s hard to make a great Terminator movie without James Cameron helming, only he can make a great Terminator movie. They can make as many Terminator movies as they want to but nothing will be better than the first two. I thought Michael Biehn played the better Kyle Reese.

The movie was just okay. It wasn’t anything special. I wish James Cameron would come back and save the Terminator franchise but he vows not to come back to them. He wants nothing to do with the series anymore which is a shame.

I’ll give the movie a score of 2 out of 5 as in “okay”.

2nd trailer of “Terminator: Genisys” arrives online…

When I saw the first teaser of “Terminator: Genisys”, I wasn’t all that impressed with it but now that the second trailer is here, I think I’m pretty much sold to the movie now. I’m looking forward to it and can’t wait. I love Emilia Clarke, big fan of hers. After her role as Daenerys in “Game of Thrones”, she’s gonna be a huge movie star. Whenever she’s done with “G.O.T.”, she’ll probably move on to movies full time.

Arnold’s zombie apocalypse movie, “Maggie” teaser is out…

Arnold trying to do horror movies is nothing new. He already did a horror movie in 1999 called, “End of Days” which is a good one and you’ve probably seen it. Arnold decides to try the horror genre again with a film called, “Maggie”, a zombie apocalypse film.

I’m a big fan of zombies and stuff so I’m looking forward to this.

This for sure looks like a totally different movie for Arnold. Instead of being the typical tough guy action hero like he always is, his role in “Maggie” looks a little more serious.

The film comes out in May and I think I’m definitely gonna go check it out. Enjoy!

Arnold Schwarzenegger gives advice to gym goer about “not being afraid of failure” when hitting the gym…

A frustrated young gym goer posted a rant on reddit saying that he almost gave up bodybuilding ’cause he was being laughed at for his horrible form in his workouts. In his post, he tagged Arnold Schwarzenegger hoping that Arnold himself would actually respond. Surprisingly enough, he did get a response from Arnold the man himself. The response from Arnold wasn’t a quick one sentence. Arnold wrote a pretty long post for him, at least several paragraphs. He just gave the gym goer who goes by the name of GnashBrowns some advice not to be afraid of failure. GnashBrowns decided to go to the gym again after Arnold wrote that post.

More on the story here:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/film-news/11490023/Arnold-Schwarzenegger-gives-struggling-gym-goer-ultimate-pep-talk-on-Reddit.html

That’s awesome! I know Arnold is not everyone’s favorite but the man really does have heart and he is a good guy. He really does care for his fellow gym goers and he does give people advice when he can. He’s good at keeping people motivated to keep going to the gym.

That’s one of the things I hate about public gyms… other people that go there are crazy. When people are doing things in bad form… other people just don’t care… they either laugh or just ignore you and they go about their day. Once in a blue moon when someone catches you doing something in bad form, he/she will be kind enough to come over and teach you how to do it correctly. That’s what happens to me once in a blue moon. Sometimes I do get caught doing something in bad form and someone will come over and teach me. I don’t get upset when that happens, though, I actually love it! When you teach people, it shows that you care for others safety. Once again, I get caught doing things wrong sometimes. It’s no big deal.

It is a big deal when people don’t care.

No matter how much controversy Arnold gets himself into, I’ve always respected the man. It’ll be cool to have Arnold himself train me for a day. Yeah, I’m still doing the bodybuilding thing. I’m just getting back into it after a little break from it. I haven’t lost my motivation in it, just took a little break ’cause you need to have those sometimes. Resting is important. Re-charge and re-start.

Disappointed with “Terminator: Genisys” trailer, might wait for DVD rental on this one…

Okay, I’m thinking about crossing off “Terminator: Genisys” as one of those movies for 2015 and might wait for rental on this one. Instead of a re-boot like they promised, it turned out to be a remake of both “The Terminator” and “T-2: Judgement Day”. Why not create a whole new story with new characters and not having anything to do with the first two films???

On top of that, nobody can play the T-1000 liquid Terminator better than Robert Patrick can. I still prefer the originals, why ruin them???

Thumbs down.

“Terminator: Genisys” trailer to be released Thursday…

The crew behind “Terminator: Genisys” (Terminator 5) released the living one sheet. Once you enter this site, it’ll give you the living one-sheet and then it’ll direct you to a count down. Which is probably the count-down to the trailer.

2015 is shaping up to be a huge year for Hollywood. “Star Wars: Episode VII”, “Bond 24”, “Jurassic World” and “Terminator: Genisys”.

I hope the new Terminator film is gonna be good. I’m a huge Terminator fan, always have been. I like all the Terminator movies even “Rise of the Machines” and “Salvation” were good films.
