“Blade Runner: 2049” trailer is finally here and it looks freakin’ awesome! Can’t wait!!!

Well the new “Blade Runner: 2049” trailer is here and it looks freakin’ awesome. I’m a huge Blade Runner fan. Love the first film and can’t wait to see this one. This film here looks like it might be the best film of the year. This is one of those movies that I’m most excited for.

Yes, there are several other movies I’m looking forward to see like “Star Wars Episode 8”, “Justice League”, “Wonder Woman”, “Stephen King’s IT” and “The Dark Tower”. All of these movies look real good but I look most forward to “Blade Runner: 2049”.

Glad Harrison is back for this one and can’t wait to see it!


Film Review: The Martian…

Starring: Matt Damon, Jeff Daniels, Sean Bean, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara

Directed by: Ridley Scott

So I went and saw the movie, “The Martian” today and here is my review:

Plot/Synopsis: During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

I read the book before I saw the movie. While the movie was pretty faithful to the book and followed along pretty well; however, it was of course a little different. The movie is always different from the book so it’s nothing new anyways.

I thought the movie was really good but did I think it was the best movie of the year, though? No, definitely not. The movie was enjoyable and entertaining as hell, though. I thought it was Matt Damon’s best role and he should get Oscar nominated for this one for sure. Of course, the movie was beautifully filmed ’cause Ridley Scott is always the master at visuals and cinematography.

I thought the movie was well-written and well-acted by the cast; however, my only disappointment was that it shouldn’t have been rated PG-13. It should have been R rated ’cause the book was full of swearing. In the movie version, they pretty much took out most of the swearing. Part of what made the book entertaining is all the swearing. There is this character named Annie Montrose who Kristen Wiig plays. Her character says the word “fuck” a lot in the book but in the movie version, she hasn’t said one swear word. In the book, Annie Montrose was the only character who swore a lot other than Mark Watney. That’s my only negative about the movie was that Annie didn’t swear ’cause that’s part of what made her character work in the book.

I didn’t know Jeff Daniels could play in a serious role like that ’cause he’s mostly well-known for playing in goofy comedies like “Dumb and Dumber”. It was different seeing Jeff in a role like that for sure.

Other than that, it was a real good movie, I enjoyed it for the most part… just wished they kept all the swearing. It’s definitely not the best film of the year, though, it’s too early to decide that yet ’cause keep in mind, y’all, we still have “The Force Awakens” coming.

Score for “The Martian”… *** 3 stars as in “good”.


Harrison Ford confirmed to reprise his role as Rick Deckard for “Blade Runner” sequel but Ridley Scott will not direct…

For many years now, Ridley Scott have been talking about developing a sequel to “Blade Runner” and looks like it’s happening for real. Harrison finally signed on to reprise his role for the sequel but Ridley Scott will not be directing. Instead, Denis Villeneuve will helm the sequel.


Pretty cool. I’m a huge fan of the “Blade Runner” movie so I’m looking forward to this. Harrison playing an aging, Rick Deckard? I’m gonna have to re-watch the “Blade Runner” movie again. I have it on DVD.

Wonder why Ridley couldn’t direct this one himself? He probably has a lot on his plate. Ridley still needs to develop the “Prometheus” sequel and that’s part of the reason why.


Harrison Ford finally offered for “Blade Runner 2″…

Alcon Entertainment claims that Harrison Ford have been offered to reprise his role as Rick Deckard for “Blade Runner 2” and it seems official, I take it? For a long while, Harrison himself has expressed a lot of interest in coming back to the role if Ridley needed him. I’d take this news with a grain of salt for now so don’t get excited yet. I won’t believe it until Harrison says so himself.


Looks like Harrison wants to play all of his well-known roles for one more time before he gets too old. He’s game for playing Han Solo again. He said he’s game to playing Rick Deckard again. He’s also trying to get Indiana Jones going again.

One role I’d love to see him come back to is Jack Ryan ’cause I thought Harrison played the best Jack Ryan. I thought, “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger” were great flicks.

I thought “Blade Runner” was great so hopefully Harrison returns. I’d like to see him and Ridley reunite.


Film Review: Prometheus

Starring: Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace
Directed by: Ridley Scott

So last night, I finally got around to checking out, “Prometheus” in theater. I actually went with 4 other people instead of going to the movies alone this time.

Here is my review:

Plot/synopsis: A team of scientists journey through the universe on the spaceship “Prometheus” on a voyage to investigate Alien life forms. The team of scientists becomes stranded on an Alien world, and as they struggle to survive it becomes clear that the horrors they experience are not just a threat to themselves, but to all of mankind.

If you’re planning to see this film and expecting this film that will have something to do with the earlier, “Alien” films, then you’ll be pretty disappointed. In early 2000, Ridley Scott originally planned this movie to be a “prequel”, of the first “Alien” movie, but due to the “Alien Vs. Predator” movie just started development, Ridley had to scrap the project. Later on in the years, Ridley picked up interest in this so called, Alien “Prequel”, and decided to make it a totally different film. That’s when Ridley decided to hire Damon Lindelof, to re-write the script.

I saw the film last night, and immediately noticed, the whole movie had nothing to do with the Alien franchise. Yes, “Prometheus” does, have aliens in the film, of course, but they are different forms of aliens. You will not see any of the original aliens from the Sigourney Weaver films. They call the film, “Prometheus”, for a reason. If the film was about the other Alien movies, then the title would have had, “Alien” in it.

This film is getting mixed reviews from critics and movie fans. Some say the script was badly written, but I didn’t think so. I thought the writing was perfect. It was intelligent and insightful. I can understand that “Science Fiction” can sometimes confuse people. I would also say that this film was true science fiction. Watching this film made me think of science fiction writers, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Orson Scott Card, and others. While, this film is science fiction, there is also some reality to this film as well.

The film wants to question us of why us humans were made. Why are we living here on this Earth? Where did we come from originally? That’s the main focus of the film. The film is about archaeologist, Elizabeth Shaw, trying to save humans from going extinct. Where did the word, “Prometheus” originally come from? It was a Greek mythology story, probably where, Ridley inspired the film from. It’s not just science fiction, the film will give you a bit of a history lesson as well.

Of course, I was very impressed with the visuals and special effects of the movie. I’m usually not that impressed with visuals and special effects of movies, ’cause most of that stuff looks cartoonish and silly to me. The visual and special effects in “Prometheus”, just blew me away. I liked the casting of the film. I thought, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace, did a great job, but I was most impressed with Michael Fassbender, who played David the Android. That was some brilliant acting by Fassbender, and I think he should get an Oscar nomination for that role.

The entire movie was entertaining. I wasn’t bored, the story kept you hooked all the way through. Yes, there are action scenes. You will also see some scary scenes and get a few jumpy scenes. You will also get some gross out scenes just like the earlier Alien films. I was very impressed with, “Prometheus”, and so far, it’s the best film of 2012, other than, “The Avengers”. It really is nice to see people interested in science fiction again. I’m hoping “Prometheus” will help give the science fiction genre a huge comeback in Hollywood. I think Ridley Scott can help bring science fiction back in a huge way as he has plans of making a sequel to, “Blade Runner”, as well. “Prometheus” was a phenomenal film, I loved it, and the film works.

Score for “Prometheus” = (**** = 4 stars as in Excellent)


Cool Photos: Noomi Rapace catches everyones attention in NYC wearing a red dress…

You ever had one of those days, where a beautiful woman walks by and everyone can’t keep their eyes off her? Well, NYC in Manhatten just experienced that. Noomi Rapace, made an appearance in NYC, to appear on the David Letterman show to promote, “Prometheus”. She wore a red dress that caught the eye of onlookers and she even stopped traffic.

See the pics, here.

The comments in that article are trash talking her, but I think she’s a gorgeous woman no matter what she wears.


Report: “Blade Runner” sequel is finally confirmed with Ridley Scott directing…Harrison Ford to return as Rick Deckard?

For many months now, Ridley Scott have been planning a project based on the “Blade Runner” movie, but refuses to say if it’s going to be a sequel, prequel or a stand alone movie. He also say he wasn’t going to direct it or not. Today, the news have finally been revealed that the secret “Blade Runner” project will indeed be a sequel and of course, Ridley Scott will direct. The original “Blade Runner” screen writer, Hampton Fancher, is also on board.

They are keeping the plot for the sequel under wraps for now, but they give a hint that the sequel will take place years after the first movie left off. So the film will obviously continue the story of, Rick Deckard. So does this mean, Harrison Ford will come back?

The Hollywood Reporter, reports.

Reports doesn’t say anything about Harrison returning, but how much do you want to bet that they got him and they’re being quiet about it? Yep. I think Harrison will return! Before anyone slams the idea of a sequel, there were three “Blade Runner” novels. Could the plot for the sequel be based on this novel, here?

Anyway, I absolutely LOVED, the first “Blade Runner”, movie. If Harrison Ford is in the sequel, I’ll go see it. I can’t see anybody else playing Rick Deckard, so hopefully they still use the character. I’m sure Harrison will be able to play the role just fine, still, even if he is aging. Ridley Scott has been one of my favorite directors for years. I’m looking forward to “Prometheus”, too.


Cool Video: Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” trailer is online, and the film looks friggin’ SWEET!!!

Ridley Scott’s new sci fi horror film titled, “Prometheus”, which stars Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace, the teaser trailer, hits online today. The film looks awesome. While I’m a huge fan of Ridley Scott movies, I think he’s best at sci fi films, and so happy he’s finally back at that genre after all these years.

See the trailer at, AICN.


Cool Photo: Ridley Scott’s “Promestheus” poster released…

The teaser poster for Ridley Scott’s directed, “Prometheus”, sci-fi/horror film have been released yesterday. It looks pretty cool. Not sure if this is supposed to be a prequel to his Alien film or not, but we’ll have to see the film for ourselves, I guess. Looking forward to it. I’m a huge fan of Ridley Scott movies.


BREAKING NEWS: Ridley Scott confirms another “Blade Runner” movie but doesn’t yet say if it’s a prequel or a sequel…

Major movie news hit the web hard today. Since Ridley Scott is working on the new Alien movie, “Prometheus”, Ridley decided to sign on to direct & produce another installment to, “Blade Runner”. The 1982 science fiction film that starred, Harrison Ford.

There is no word on whether this new “Blade Runner” film, will be a prequel or a sequel. It is also not known if Harrison Ford will reprise his role as, Rick Deckard.

Deadline, reports.

I always thought there was more of a story to tell with, “Blade Runner”. It’s one of my favorite films of all times. Is it a good idea for Harrison to return though? If they make it a sequel for him to return. They could also hire a young actor to play a young Rick Deckard for the prequel. Not sure what Ridley’s plans are yet, but it certainly deserves another film. Love this movie!
