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.

Film Review: “X-Men: Apocalypse”

Starring: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Sophie Turner

Directed by: Bryan Singer

So today I’ve just seen the new “X-Men: Apocalypse” and here is my review.


Plot/Synopsis: With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.

I’m a huge fan of the X-Men movies but this one was kind of disappointing to be honest with you. Reasons being is that no. 1 is that it had way too much CGI. I think this film overdone it with the CGI… I felt like I was watching a huge computer game on screen or something. Reason 2 it wasn’t that good is because I thought the writing was a mess and it’s just a typical popcorn film. The movie is a full 2 and a half hours long. The film had too many characters, in my opinion.

I do have a few positives of the film, though. I like seeing Sophie Turner who played Jean Grey. Sophia Turner mostly famous for playing Sansa Stark in the “Game of Thrones” series. She did a great job in the film too. As usual, I think Michael Fassbender makes a great young Magneto.

It’s just a disappointing film and kind of boring. I did like how it explained the friendship of Xavier and Magneto though which is one thing we’ve all been wondering for years. With that being sad, this film wasn’t all that great and nothing special.

I’ll give it a 2 out of 5 stars as in “okay”.

Thoughts about major movie studios fighting back at Georgia’s “anti-gay” bill…

There’s a bill that’s about to get signed in Georgia that’s sparking a lot of outrage in Hollywood. The bill is called, Free Exercise Protection…. the bill has been sent to Gov. Deal to his desk for him sign and the deadline is May 3rd. What the bill does is that it gives ministers the rights not to be forced to perform marriages on same sex couples if they don’t want to and it gives real people like myself the right not to attend a gay wedding if they don’t want to.

I don’t see how this bill is “anti-gay” ’cause all it does is that it gives people the right not to perform marriages on same-sex couples and we don’t have to attend gay weddings if we don’t want to. That doesn’t mean we hate gays just because some of us still believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman alone. There’s still a lot of us who still believe in traditional marriage like myself. Ministers shouldn’t have to get forced to perform gay weddings and we shouldn’t have to attend one if we please. I don’t see anything “anti-gay” about that bill at all.

Hollywood is fighting back ’cause I know how freakin’ “liberal” Hollywood is.

It’s a shame that anyone who disagrees with same-sex marriage is quickly judged as “anti-gay” or a homophobe.

Our freedom of expression is in danger here… we can’t speak our minds on the homosexual lifestyle, we can’t talk about Muslims however we want to and soon we’ll be called “sexist” for talking about women in a bad way. Yeah, ‘Merica.

“Deadpool” movie breaks box office records with $135 million… not surprising though!

“Deadpool” really was an excellent film. Before I saw the movie, I never knew much about the character ’cause I’ve never read a single Deadpool comic in my life. After seeing this movie makes me want to read more “Deadpool” comics ’cause the character is interesting to say the least. I think he’s one of the best Marvel superheroes. The character is awesome and Ryan Reynolds was perfect to play him. I can’t see anyone else playing that character but him. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, what are you waiting for? Go see it now. Even if you’re not a fan of sueprhero movies much, I think you would still enjoy the film. I’m definitely buying the Blu-Ray when it comes out.

Film Review: Dead Pool



Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Gina Carano

Directed by: Tim Miller

So today, I’ve just seen the new “Deadpool” movie. Here is my review:

Plot/Synopsis: This is the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

I have to hand it to the film makers of this movie. This was a pretty ballsy movie to make due to it’s content. Most Marvel movies over the years were pretty family friendly. They’ve made movies that were aimed toward children since Marvel is now owned by Disney and all. Disney allowing Marvel to make an R rated superhero movie? Yes… I know there have been plenty of other R rated superhero movies and this wasn’t the first R rated Marvel movie either. Another Marvel movie that has an R rating was “The Punisher” with Thomas Jane in 2004 but that movie was before Disney bought Marvel, though. I believe “Deadpool” is the first R rated superhero movie by Marvel under Disney ownership. I’m pretty sure Marvel battled Disney over this privately ’cause Disney was probably against this movie due to it’s adult content since Disney is family friendly so it is quite a surprise that Marvel would make a movie like this.

I thought “Deadpool” was amazing. It’s definitely the best Marvel film and it’s a true comic book movie. This movie is strictly for adults. It’s definitely not a movie for children at all. You want a superhero movie full of sex, nudity, violence and blood? You’re gonna get all that in “Deadpool”. There’s a variety of genres in “Deadpool”. It’s not just an action movie, it’s also a romance movie and a comedy.

I thought the film was well made and well written. Well acted by the cast too. Of course, the action scenes were a blast to watch as well. This movie is also a revenge movie.

To hell with “50 Shades of Grey”. “50 Shades” is a romance movie for women. “Deadpool” is a romance movie for guys. “Deadpool” is definitely not a chick flick that’s for sure. It’s a guy flick. When you go see “Deadpool”, you’ll see mostly men in the audience. This is Ryan Reynolds best superhero role too. I didn’t like his role in the “Green Lantern” and finally Ryan found a superhero that fits him. “Deadpool” is where Ryan Reynolds belong. Go see, “Deadpool” asap.

Score for “Deadpool”. 5 out of 5 as in “excellent”.

Jessica Jones on Netflix really was a great show… check it out…

So last night, I just finished Season 1 of the Netflix Marvel series, “Jessica Jones” and I thought it was surprisingly great. Watched the whole season as I became addicted to the show. Yes, the show is binge worthy for sure. The show is definitely 10x’s way better than “Supergirl” on CBS which is garbage. If you wanna watch a GOOD female superhero TV show, watch “Jessica Jones” instead.

The writing for “Jessica Jones” was really good and so were the characters. Plus, I think Kristen Ritter who plays Jessica is pretty fucking hot too!

Anyway, the reason that the show kept me watch is cause of David Tenant’s character, Kilgrave who is the main villain. Kilgrave is one badass villain and kind of crazy too. I know David Tenant is a talented actor ’cause I watched him in the new Dr. Who series. He kills it in “Jessica Jones”. If you like “Marvel” this show is worth watching. This show is already very popular which is no surprise. So I’m already looking forward to Season 2. It’s a great show.

Hollywood using TV for female-centric superheroes as a test for big screen movies???

Soon, DCs “Supergirl” is coming to NBC and now Hollywood has another female-centric superhero TV show coming to the small screen exclusively for Netflix. This one is called, “Jessica Jones” and it’s already looking interesting even if it’s a tiny teaser. I’m sure Marvel will release the full trailer soon.

I know Hollywood isn’t friendly with female-centric superhero movies but are they using TV shows first as a test for future big screen movies? I’d say yes. If “Supergirl” and “Jessica Jones” are both big hits then I can see Hollywood making a lot more female-centric superhero movies for the big screen. It’s just a test to see how well the TV shows go, ya know?

There are female-centric superhero movies coming to the big screen like DC’s “Wonder Woman” and Marvel’s “Captain Marvel” are both in the works.

I think women deserve a chance in the superhero genre. I think they can become successful… they just need a good script, good casting and good filming. Women taking the lead in superhero films can work if done right.

Kev

On a side note, women do deserve more respect in the superhero genre…

Yeah, I have noticed the lack of women starring in the leading roles in superhero flicks. With that being said, I think another reason Ronda released those photos of her as Cpt. Marvel is ’cause maybe it’s her way of trying to get a new movement going? She fought for women to be allowed to fight in the UFC and she was a success at that… I think she’s trying to do the same for the superhero movie world, ya know? The superhero film franchises should give women more respect.

Well, “Wonder Woman” is getting her own film so that’s a start and we’ll see how that film does in the box office. If that film becomes a box office hit, I predict Warner Brothers & Disney/Marvel will do ever more female-centric superhero films with her in the leading role. If that film bombs then there probably won’t be more after that.

I remember seeing “Supergirl” with Helen Slater and that was a great film. Even though the film bombed, I thought that film was a well-made movie.

There are plenty of female superheroes with their own comics… it’s just that a lot of them never got movies made of them.

Cpt. Marvel should definitely happen. I also think She-Hulk should happen. What about Bat-girl? I think a Bat-girl movie should happen. There’s also Magdalene. I also think Black Widow should absolutely get her own film as well.

Forgot to mention that the “Underworld” movie franchise is based on a comic even though DC/Marvel isn’t involved with that one… that comic became a hit movie franchise. Selene is the hero.

We’ll wait and see how the “Wonder Woman” film does and hopefully that film does well in the box office so there can be more female-centric superhero films. I think there should be more. You should thank Ronda for bringing this to our attention.
