Hey hey hey!! Happy Hump Day!

Today is dedicated to movies, movies and more movies. So, grab your popcorn and prepare for trailers, release dates, casting news, etc. I’m hoping to have some podcasts posted here as well, so if I can wrangle in some of my cohorts, those will be included on certain Wednesdays too.

I can’t complete my first #MovieWednesday without mentioning the new Star Wars trailer! Ho. Ly. Crap. Balls. The anticipation for this one is REAL! If you’re one of like five people who hasn’t seen it yet, you can watch it below:

Ahhhhhh!!! Were you as impressed and worried as I was?? I work with two Star Wars fanatics who are uber excited about the idea that Rey might turn to the dark side alongside Kylo Ren, but I refuse to accept this. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that perhaps she’s teaming up with Luke Skywalker and pretending to side with Kylo Ren in order to retaliate for (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!) killing Hans Solo. Think I’m reaching? You’re not the only one haha. Let me know what YOU thought!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to be released in theaters December 15, 2017 and tickets are available now!


PB1208[1]This is a rather random choice for #MovieWednesday, but who cares? It’s a movie! I’ve heard so many people talking about the 1987 film The Princess Bride, but I, personally, have never seen it. I decided to change that and I recorded it on my DVR last week. I finally sat down to watch it and realized that it wasn’t necessarily what I expected. It was odd, it was far-fetched, it was cute, it was romantic, it was funny and I liked it! Have you seen it before? Want me to shut up about it now? … As you wish …


One movie that I’m really excited about is Justice League! I don’t even think I need to give an explanation as to why! lol. I’m excited to see Jason Momoa embrace the role of Aquaman, and I’m stoked to see a female superhero (Wonder Woman) holding her own amongst some of the best male superheroes. I’m still a bit salty that Grant Gustin didn’t get to play The Flash in the film since he plays him so well on The CW, but I digress. Check out the newest trailer and let me know your feelings. Who are you most excited to see?

 

Here are the newest movie posters for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Justice League:

 

#Thisfunktional #FathomEvents Brought Adam West’s Batman Back to the Big Screen

Written by Jesus Figueroa

Fathom Event’s brought new animation “Batman Return of the caped Crusaders” to the big screen with a special intro by the cast of AMC’s “Geeking Out.”

With Tiffany Smith, Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg of “Geeking Out” exchanging stories of their introductions to Batman and how the caped crusader has impacted their lives, the intro gives a bit more of a nostalgia factor as Adam West voices Batman, Burt Ward voices Robin and Julie Newmar voices Catwoman once again.

There’s something about West’s Batman which keeps fans returning to this version of Batman.

The animated feature has the caped crusaders facing four of their iconic villains, but also has one surprise adversary which is unexpected.

The voices of Jeff Bergman as the Joker, William Salyers as the Penguin and Wally Wingert as the Riddler blend well with the style that West’s Batman is known for.

This story feels like actual fans of West’s Batman took great care to properly honor the classic series.

“Batman return of the Caped Crusaders” is available on Digital HD on Oct. 11 and will be available on Blu-ray on Nov. 1.

I give this animated movie 5 out of 5 Popcorns. The original voices are great to set the story in the same Batman storyline as the classic series. The comedy of this version of Batman is well set and much more than a dark knight, this Batman makes audiences believe that being a good person, good citizen and conscious of positive beliefs can make a hero. It’s a much different Batman than audiences have had for the recent versions of Batman. The use alliteration and tone keep audiences glued to the screen.
