Annihilation Spoiler-Free Review

Hey everybody, we are back and we are once again talking sci-fi! We are going to talk about a movie that as soon as it hit my radar, I was really excited for. I of course mean Annihilation, a movie based on a novel of the same name which was the first of a trilogy of books. So, without further ado, let’s have a look at the movie. As usual, no spoilers.

The Cloverfield Paradox Spoiler Review

Hey everyone we are back again with another movie review. I was originally going to talk about Superbowl trailers but one of those trailers was for The Cloverfield Paradox, called The God Particle when it was on my list of anticipated movies for 2017. And not only that, we also got a release date, it was coming out on Netflix that night after the game. And I finally got a chance to see it. So let’s see what all that waiting is for. I have tried to write this as a non-spoiler review. I really have. That’s part of the reason this is later than anticipated. But unfortunately, this is one of those movies you can’t talk about without talking about the movie. So, out of the ordinary and spoilers ahead.

Movies of 2018 I’m not Interested In

Hey everyone, I thought I’d do something a little different. Let’s be honest, the anticipated movies of 2018 are pretty straightforward. Is there any doubt that I’m excited for Infinity War, Black Panther, A Wrinkle in Time, etc., etc., etc.? I could expound my excitement for Annihilation, The Predator, or whatever the heck they’re going to call that third Cloverfield movie. But I also discovered there’s a lot of ‘big’ movies coming out that I’m just plain old not interested in. It runs a gamut between ‘meh’ and ‘kill it with fire’, and I thought this might be more fun. So let’s look at the un­-anticipated movies of 2018. I’m sure some will be obvious, others probably not so much.

2017 Movie Wrap-Up

Hello everyone, it’s that time of the year again. We’re now in 2018 so let’s give 2017 one final send-off by talking about the movies of the year. I waited a little bit to write this because there was one movie that I really needed to see again before I put everything in the final order. Now that I’ve taken care of that we can get down to this. I didn’t see that many movies this year (I have a list of 22) for a variety of reasons such as distance from theater, releases that don’t release wide enough for us to get them, general time/life/work, etc. things. There are some big releases that I haven’t seen that I wish I could have put on here but unfortunately can’t, so sorry to It, Thor: Ragnarok, Blade Runner 2049, Geostorm, and Justice League, but you don’t get to be on the list. I will be seeing them once they hit home release but I just didn’t get to them theatrically. With that said, let’s get part one started!

This Is What It’s Really About

Okay, guys, anyone who's spent any time on the Internet since Last Jedi came out knows it's been controversial. Since JR did a fantastic review, I thought maybe I'd talk about the backlash surrounding it. But that's super negative to do right before Christmas, and refuting all the complaints would be super spoilery. So I thought I'd do something a little more uplifting for the season. Get your kleenex, folks.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom First Trailer and Featurette

Twas three weeks before Christmas

And we were biding our time.

Tonight was for dinos

(next week’s all Jedi)

 

The people all waited on YouTube with care

With hopes that a trailer soon would be there

 

There’s he in his t-shirt and I in my hoodie,

Waiting and hoping it would be a goody.

When from the table there came such a tither,

‘The trailer is live, it was posted on Twitter!’
