So obviously if you have seen the new X-Men movie, Days of Future Past, you were treated to the trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service. After watching the trailer Danny leaned over and told me it was based on a comic book. A comic book that had just barely come out.
I am always weary of a movie if it doesn’t have a strong base story, but hell, if someone read it and was so moved that they threw millions of dollars to make an action movie right off the bat… I had to read this book!
So Amazon pushed me around for a few days, but finally The Secret Service arrived. I devoured it in basically one sitting and am conflicted. Let’s talk it out after the trailer.
I am addicted to free movie screenings. The boyfriend and I have been going lately and this week’s movie was The Way Way Back. This movie has a stellar cast, Sam Rockwell, Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Maya Rudolph, AnnaSophia Robb, and the lead; Liam James.
For a summary and more …
We did our highly anticipated in 2013 podcast (Engress) recently, and movies were unfortunately cut due to time. Danny has his Top 20, but we had many more to mention. Unfortunately, this one still missed our attention. Niels Arden Oplev (2009’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) teams again with Noomi Rapace to bring us a tense tale of revenge. Colin Farrell and Terrence Howard also star. Check out the trailer.
Okay before you start hurling digital rotten produce at my head, hear me out! The Twilight Saga is coming to a long awaited end and this music nerd has mixed feelings about it. I am a fan of the books, but the movies fall short for me. The best thing about the movies were the soundtracks anyway. These soundtracks are like a love letter to indie music. You know, its that stuff that hipsters liked before it became mainstream? Indie music gets a bad rap, but i think it is one of the most original genres right now. Perhaps its prevalence is partially due to the effect that Twilight Saga has had on pop culture. So this Friday playlist is an hour of music from the five Twilight Saga soundtracks. Enjoy!
There’s a new trailer for the next installment in the Bourne franchise. Let’s take a look:
Looks like we’re going to see this movie take us through various points of the previous Bourne films. Definitely looks like a lot of cool action stuff. Just simply looking forward to some great action.
