Just saw “Avengers: Infinity War” earlier today and it was the best superhero film since “The Dark Knight”…

Well, earlier this afternoon, I decided to go to the mall to check out the new “Avengers: Infinity War” film which is the third installment of the Avengers franchise. You may have noticed that I don’t do movie reviews here much anymore ’cause why? Simply because I don’t go to the movies much anymore but I’m trying to go more often if they release something I wanna see and turns out “Avengers: Infinity War” is something I wanted to see ’cause I loved the first two Avengers film.

This film was even better. I was so impressed with “Avengers: Infinity War” and was pretty much blown away by it, really. When I was watching this film, I kept trying to figure out which movie it is. Is this an Avengers film or Guardians of the Galaxy 3? Well, it’s a crossover film and I’ve noticed that the Guardians of the Galaxy cast got a lot more screen time than the Avengers cast which was kind of strange to me. Other than that, it was still a very good movie. I loved the whole thing and wasn’t bored one bit. It was action packed and it was fun to watch. The film got serious at times, though.

The ending left me thinking, “WTF just happened?”. Nobody knows what happened at the end and it’s a mystery that no one will find out. I won’t explain what happened ’cause I don’t want to reveal major spoilers but this is just a hint about what’s about to go down. I’m sure all will be explained in the next movie.

I must say that Thanos who was voiced by Josh Brolin was one of the best villains in a superhero film. The cast was very big, though. It’s a crowded movie with so many big name stars all over the place.

I thought the story and writing was interesting and different. The special effects and action scenes were fun too. While this film is a must see, I think it’s appropriate that you must watch the first two Avengers films and the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films so you can see what’s going on. To be honest, I’ve never even watched the “Doctor Strange” movie before yet but I will get around to it at some point.

I do like watching superhero films but there are only very few that I love like “Superman I and II” w/ Chris Reeve, “The Dark Knight” w/ Christian Bale and Heath Ledger, “Iron Man 3”, “Logan”, “The Punisher” w/ Thomas Jane, “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and now you can add “Avengers: Infinity War” to the list.

I thought “Infinity War” was phenomenal. Can’t wait for the next one.

Netflix already announces “The Punisher – Season 2” even if it just released Season 1 last month…

I did watch “The Punisher – Season 1” on Netflix… watched the whole season. Every episode. The show got addicting from the start. There were some Punisher actors in big screen movies over the years like Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. While those guys were great, I think Jon Bernthal played the best Punisher for sure.

This was a badass show, though. I’m so glad I kept Netflix. Even if most of their original material are shit, sometimes they can have good stuff on there. I was impressed with “The Punisher” on Netflix. It was fucking awesome. Loved all of it. The writing, the acting and the filming were pretty good too. The show was really violent and bloody as well.

When you watch this show, though, Frank Castle doesn’t put on the skull shirt and turn into this tough guy badass toward the end of the show. This is a new origin story of the Punisher, just an introduction. I’m sure things will get even better in Season 2. Season 1 was just a new introduction of the Punisher.

Jon Bernthal is a talented actor, though. I remembered him as Shane in “The Walking Dead” (a show I quit watching by the way). I’m already looking forward to Season 2. I’m not into Marvel that much but the Punisher is my favorite Marvel character. I love the Frank Castle story.

I like the Punisher ’cause he’s one of the very few superheroes who don’t have any superpowers. He’s just a real human kind of like Batman.

If you haven’t seen “The Punisher” on Netflix yet, you should watch it. I thought it was surprisingly a great show.

There are other shows I want to watch on Netflix. I gotta get around to starting “Gotham – Season 3” and I want to check out “Stranger Things” too. Too many shows, too little time.

Disney is getting their own streaming service… looks like all the Star Wars movies being made Netflix streamable is never gonna happen now…

Netflix has been trying to get all Star Wars movies to be made streamable, including the original trilogy and the prequels, but looks like that’s never gonna happen now. The reason is that Disney is getting their own streaming service pretty soon and everything Star Wars and everything Marvel will be moved to there.

‘Star Wars,’ Marvel Films Moving From Netflix to Disney Streaming Service

I was surprised to see that Disney actually allowed Netflix to stream, Star Wars: Rogue One — that film is gonna get pulled off of there.

Anyway, I don’t like Disney anymore. They’re no longer an interesting company. Are they trying to own everything? Seems like it. Disney is a powerful empire and it’s getting bigger.

Netflix is not all that great of a service either. You don’t need to watch Star Wars on Netflix anyways. The movies can be bought and downloaded from Itunes. If you have a Blu Ray player or just use DVD, you can watch the Star Wars movies on those things too. Even better, if you’re old school and still watch movies on VHS, you could probably watch the original Star Wars versions on VHS.

Screw Netflix. I don’t watch Netflix as much as I used to ’cause it’s no longer interesting. I only kept it ’cause of “Longmire” and “Gotham”. I like those shows.

What is it with Led Zeppelin songs appearing in movie trailers lately? I think it’s awesome!

So the “Thor: Ragnarok” trailer is finally here which looks like a badass movie btw and I’m planning on seeing it for sure but I love how Led Zeppelin songs have been appearing in a lot of movie trailers lately.

Check out this article here:

I’m sure the film makers had to get Jimmy Page’s written permission in order to put Led Zeppelin songs in movie trailers so Jimmy Page is obviously all for it. This is a great way to keep Led Zeppelin’s legacy alive and that’s probably the reason why Page is all for it.

In this new generation of music fans, there are still some people who don’t even listen to Led Zeppelin and this is a great way to promote the band still. I do agree though that Led Zeppelin songs do make movie trailers a lot more exciting.

Can’t wait to see “Thor: Ragnarok” as I’m a pretty big Thor fan.

Do Marvel superhero movies get treated more positively than DC superhero movies? I would say so!

Each time DC/Warner Bros. releases a new superhero film, the film gets so much negative criticism but Marvel superhero films gets received more positively. Why is this you may ask?

I remember when DC released the Green Lantern movie with Ryan Reynolds, that film got bashed like crazy. Then when “Man of Steel” finally came out that film got mixed reviews… then “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” came and that film got bashed like crazy.

Each time Marvel releases a new film whether it will be a “Thor” movie, a “Captain America” movie, “Doctor Strange” or another “Avengers” film… those films are loved by everyone.

It has nothing to do with the films itself. It has nothing to do with the directors, the script, etc. I think it’s because that Marve/Disney is at war with DC. That’s pretty much it really. It’s all competition with each other. One company wants to be better than the other. Hollywood doing all they can to ram Marvel down our throats. Marvel is trying all they can to get DC to lose their respect by movie lovers.

I just saw the new trailer for “Wonder Woman” by DC and it looks great to me:

How much do you want to bet that “Doctor Strange” is gonna get more received positively than “Wonder Woman”? Even though “Wonder Woman” would probably end up being a good film, it’s still gonna get bashed on because it’s DC.

I also have a bad feeling that Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie will get trashed on too and I think the same will happen to the “Justice League” movie.

If DC wants to get more respect again then they need to step their game up. Like make better movies, they also need to market themselves better too. I think both companies make great films so I’m not gonna say which side makes better films.

The problem is DC don’t make that much superhero films when they should.  It’s a shame that DC don’t get much respect anymore when they should. They are the ones who brought us Batman and Superman. They finally teamed up Batman and Superman in a film like we all wanted so they should be respected.

I try not to give films negative criticism ’cause it’s something I try not to do. Negative opinions is just a waste of time when it comes to entertainment. I try to treat everything positively. Yeah, there are some movies I don’t like but I like most movies I see. If there’s a film I see I don’t care for then I’ll do my best to keep the opinion to myself. People can be very negative and opinionated when it comes to movies & music and I try not to be like that.

Why is the next “Wolverine” movie titled, “Logan”… there’s gotta be a meaning behind it?

There’s gotta be a special meaning as to why the next Wolverine movie is titled “Logan” instead of “Wolverine: (subtitle here)”. Why has it been simply titled “Logan”? Logan is the Wolverine’s actual first name. Is it because in this movie, he’s no longer the Wolverine? He’s no longer the superhero and no longer does things for people? Maybe he has lost all of his powers and strength so he retired from being the superhero maybe?

If you look at the poster above it looks like a young child is holding the Wolverine’s hand. Does that mean Logan has a kid now? Who did he get the kid with, Jean Grey maybe?

This is supposed to be about an aging Wolverine, I heard which sounds interesting. After seeing all the new Wolverine stuff getting released, I just started thinking about all this. The final Wolverine film that Hugh Jackman will play looks to be a totally different Wolverine than all the films he has played in the past.

I’m already looking forward to the film and I just know the trailer is gonna be great!

Hugh Jackman reveals title of new Wolverine movie and poster released for it too…

Hugh Jackman just revealed the title for the next Wolverine movie. It will also be the final Wolverine movie that Hugh will play. The next Wolverine film will be simply titled, “Logan” and the film is coming out on March 3rd in 2017.

The movie poster was exclusively revealed in NYC on a building as you can see in the photos above. Hugh Jackman himself poses in front of the building.

I’ve seen all the X-Men movies and all the Wolverine films so I’m looking forward to the next one too. I’m a big Wolverine fan. We’ll get a teaser trailer pretty soon.
