What i'm excited for - Movie edition #1 [Emz]

Wednesday, 16 August 2017


I though as I has posted about what i'm currently looking forward to on TV i'd post about movies also.

Now this film looks so funny. As it says above it is called The Hitman's Bodyguard.

The film features Ryan Reynolds as the Bodyguard and Samuel L. Jackson as the Hitman. Although when I see this I just picture Deadpool and Nick Fury (Marvel Reference haha) 


The film also stars Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek and Richard E. Grant. 

In the trailer it clearly shows that Samuel L. Jackson's character is not keen at call on having a Bodyguard, probably as he is a Hitman and he usually works for other people not the other way around.

Here is the Synopsis:
A special protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is tasked with guarding the life of his mortal enemy, who is one of the world's most notorious hitmen (Samuel L. Jackson), and taking him from the United Kingdom to the International Court of Justice. On their way, they are on high-speed car chases and boat escapes as deadly assassins are pursuing them and they are forced to work together in order to defeat a ruthless, powerful and bloodthirsty Eastern European dictator (Gary Oldman).
Ok... so that explains a lot.

Anyway I am super excited to see this next weekend (26th August) for my birthday.

Fingers crossed it's as funny as it looks.

It is released on the 18th August.

Let me know if you watch it and let me know what you think.

Till next time

Top 10 Upcoming Disney Films I'm Looking Forward To [Emz]

Tuesday, 15 August 2017


There are a lot of movies by Disney that are going to be released over the next few years and below are the one's i'm really looking forward to. This includes Marvel Movies.

Some may lap over from my previous post about movies before the end of 2017.

1.Thor: Ragnarok
Release Date: 27th October 2017 (UK)


So this is the third and possibly final Thor film. 
It takes place before Avengers: Infinity War.  It looks really good but there appear to be funny moments included. 

I also remember reading that Doctor Strange will have a Cameo in this film. Obviously we know that Bruce Banner/ Hulk will be in the film as well.

Obviously he will be without the famous hairstyle and weapons and with Cate Blanchett as the Villian this will be one interesting film.


2.Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Release Date: 15th December 2017


So we have had to wait 2 years for the follow-up to The Force Awakens, i'm sure it will be worth the wait.

The only sad thing is that Carrie Fisher will not appear in the follow-up to this film after her sad death last year

After watching Teaser Trailer for this I have been slowly getting more and more excited.

Roll on Christmas time.

3. Black Panther
Release Date: 16th February 2018


So From what i've seen and heard, this film will be really good. It has a few names in it that a recognise Such as Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o and Forest Whittaker.

I'm hoping for good things after the stint he had in Captain America: Civil War.


4.  A Wrinkle in Time
Release Date: 9th March 2018


So I don't know an awful lot about this film, but I know it has an all-star cast. From Oprah Winfrey to Reese Witherspoon. It also stars Chris Pine and Mindy Kaling.

This is the Premise:
After learning that her astrophysicist father is being held captive on a planet that houses all the evil in the universe, Meg Murray works with her brother Charles Wallace, her classmate Calvin O'Keefe and three astral travelers to save him.

5. Avengers: Infinity War
Release Date: 27th April 2018


This film is one that I am so looking forward to. I remember watching the first Avengers Film and thinking it was brilliant. I am more than ready for this one.

Here is the Premise: 
Four years after the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Avengers, torn apart after the events of Captain America: Civil War, join forces with the Guardians of the Galaxy to battle Thanos, who is trying to amass the Infinity Stones for a gauntlet that will allow him to inflict his will on all reality.

6. Star Wars: Han Solo 
Release Date: 25th May 2018


There isn't alot known about this film yet. The title is self-explanatory so, we know who it is about though.

It has quite a few well-known names in this film: Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Woody Harrleson and Thandi Newton.

Here is the Premise:
Themed as a space Western, the film is centered on a young Han Solo, the roguish smuggler who later meets Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker in the Mos Eisley Cantina in Star Wars (1977), and his adventures with his Wookiee partner Chewbacca, including their encounter with Lando Calrissian.

7. The Incredibles 2
Release Date: 15th June 2018


So I can't even remember how long it's been since the first one was released, but I seriously cannot wait for this film! Ok so I just looked it up and it is about 14 years (2004).

This film is supposed to carry on from the last one. I'll have to make sure I've watched the first one again before I go and see it.


Here is the synopsis on the movie:
The Incredibles 2 follows the adventures of the Parrs, a family of Supers (humans with super abilities). The Parrs include the father, Bob, also known as Mr. Incredible who possesses super strength, Helen, his wife also known as Elastigirl for the ability to stretch her body, and their children Violet, who can become invisible and project force fields, Dash, who possesses super speed, and Jack-Jack, their infant who can transform into a number of forms. The sequel will start "a minute" after the end of the first film, according to Pixar's chief creative officer John Lasseter, where the Parrs are just about to face the Underminer.

8. Ant-Man & The Wasp
Release Date: 6th July 2018


After watching the first film, I am really looking forward to how this film goes. With Michelle Pfeiffer joining the cast as Janet Van Dyne. This should be one brilliant film.

Here is the Premise:
Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang tries to balance his home life as a father with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, when Hope van Dyne and Hank Pym present him with a new mission, requiring him to team up with van Dyne as the Wasp.

9. Captain Marvel
Release Date: 8th March 2019 (UK)


There is no current Plot for this film but hey it's got to be good it's Marvel's first Female Superhero movie. I'm a little bummed that we have to wait till 2019 but hopefully it will be worth the wait.

We know that Brie Larson was cast in the main role and that it is rumoured to be set in the 1990's.


10. Mulan
Release Date: 20th December 2019


 I don't know alot about the live action version of this film. But I hope it is brilliant as I love Mulan. It is one of my favourite Disney films.

Here is a very basic summary of what the movie is about
A young Chinese maiden disguises herself as a warrior in order to save her father.

I sadly couldn't post them all but these are my current 10.

Are there any I haven't put down that you are looking forward to by Disney?

Movie Reviews: Cinderella 2015 (Zee Tay)

Title: Cinderella
Year of release: 2015
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Lily James, Helena Bonham Carter, Richard Madden, Care Blachett, Holiday Granger, Sophie McShera, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin, Rob Brydon.

One day her father remarried, and with that she gained a step mother and two stepsister. One day her father got really Ill on travels and sadly passed away. Leaving poor Ella an orphan.

The prince fall in love and hoping to meet her again, hense he open the ball invitation to the whole kingdom. Hoping that we come.






Review:
I seen quite a few version of this classic Disney story, some of which are more Grimm then other. So in a way I am so thankful that this isn't grim. I really enjoy this version as it shows the relationship between the Prince and his father. I really enjoyed seeing that because we always forces on Cinderella family relationship. With watching a few other version of the story made me realise that even though it well put together, doesn't bring anything new to the table. It was like watching the animation but live action instead. 

Stars.

What i'm excited for - TV edition #1 [Emz]


So I thought I would post what i'm excited for on TV.

I am super excited for the upcoming TV show for Netflix, The Defenders.

Basically it's all 4 of the Netflix Marvel heroes coming together for a TV show.


So we have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, all together in one show

To top it off the Villain will be portrayed by Sigourney Weaver.

The Premise for the series is as follows:
Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of the first season of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy: The Hand.
The Hand is the enemy we come to know about in Iron Fist, which I am enjoying watching. 

I admit to the fact that I haven't watched all 4 series all the way through. I'm almost at the end of Daredevil Season 1, I've watched all of Jessica Jones so far, I couldn't get into Luke Cage and I am working my way through Iron Fist.

The Series is released onto Netflix everywhere on the 18th August.

The Series will consist of 8 episodes.

If you have watched any of the Marvel Netflix shows i have mentioned, let me know what you think in the comments, which one was your favourite? So far mine would have to be Jessica Jones.

Till next time

TV Reviews: Zoo - Series 1 [Emz]

Monday, 14 August 2017


So I am currently really into the TV Series Zoo. I am watching Season 1 on Netflix. Season 3 is currently airing on CBS in the USA.

The show is based on the book by James Patterson of the same title.

The basic plot is that all animals are turning against humanity.

Here is the plot from Wikipedia:
Violent animal attacks upon humans are occurring all over the world. Jackson Oz, an American zoologist and his Kenyan friend, Abraham, a safari guide, as well as a Los Angeles reporter, a quirky veterinary pathologist, and a French intelligence agent all seek to investigate the mysterious pandemic as the attacks become more coordinated and ferocious.
The cast includes Billy Burke, best known for portraying Charlie Swan in The Twilight Saga. He has also starred in the TV show Revolution and guest starred in Rizzoli & Isles.

The currrent main cast for Series 1 is as follows:

James Wolk as Jackson Oz, a zoologist
Kristen Connolly as Jamie Campbell, a journalist
Nonso Anozie as Abraham Kenyatta, a safari guide
Nora Arnezeder as Chloe Tousignant, a French intelligence investigator 
Billy Burke as Dr. Mitch Morgan, a veterinary pathologist.


I am really enjoying this series, the twists and turns through each episode make you wonder what is going to happen next. I also makes you wonder who is trustworthy.

I wanted to post about this without giving away any spoilers which is very difficult.

Trust me when I say, if you like dystopian futures and sci-fi then you will enjoy this.

If you have seen this show at all or plan on watching it I'd like to hear you thoughts.

Please feel free to comment on this post and tell me what you think.

Till next time

Top 5 movies i'm looking forward to before the end of 2017. [Emz]

Saturday, 12 August 2017

Hey guys! I haven't started working on any movie reviews yet but I thought I would share with you 5 movie i'm looking forward to before we reach 2018.

1. Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Release date: 29th September 2017 (UK)


I watched the first film after my friend let me borrow the DVD and it was really good. I'm really looking forward to the sequel. Not only does it look like a step up from the first one we have a all star cast to go with it.

I'm really looking forward to seeing it.


2. Thor: Ragnarok
Release date: 27th October 2017 (UK)


Now I have seen all of the Thor films so far and Avengers, so i'm really looking forward to this. It going to be cool to see Bruce Banner/ Hulk in this film considering he hasn't been seen since Avengers: Age of Ultron.

There's a lot of new in this film. New hair (ha ha) new weapons, new cast members and of course new villain(s).

Following how well Spider-man: Homecoming has been received it seems Marvel is on a roll.


3. A Bad Moms Christmas
Release Date: 3rd November 2017

The first film was so funny. I admit it was rude all the same but a lot of film are these days.
So from what I've heard the Bad Moms from the first film have their moms coming to town for Christmas.

We have two very well known hollywood actresses joining the cast as the mom's of the moms. Susan Sarandon and Christine Baranski.

It looks really funny and it is the kind of thing to watch when you are in need of a good laugh.


4. Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Release Date: 15th December 2017


So here we are with the second instalment of the Disney sequels. the film appears to pick up with The Force Awakens left off. We are welcoming back Luke Skywalker.

The sad thing is we are also saying goodbye to Princess Leia/ due to Carrie Fishers sad passing in December last year.

I am so excited to see this and can't wait for it to air.


5. Pitch Perfect 3
Release Date: 22nd December 2017


There are so many films I could have added here, but I am really looking forward to this one, even if it is a little bittersweet.

Pitch Perfect 3 is the final instalment of three films. In this one all the original cast from the first film have gone out to work in the real world after college. It will be interesting to see how they all come together once again.

Roll on December.

So they are my top 5 films.

What films are you looking forward to before 2017?
