IMG_1367

Hey there, movie lovers!

The highly anticipated trailer for AQUAMAN made a splash at Comic-Con this past weekend and . . . yes, just yes. Jason Momoa reprises his role as Aquaman aka Arthur Curry from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, and I’m stoked to see him take on the lead role in this one!

SYNOPSIS: Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world.

I have to admit, I was waiting for Ariel and King Triton to appear on the screen during the trailer haha. While Amber Heard’s character, Mera, certainly fits the description of Ariel, AQUAMAN is in a league of its own when it comes to underwater worlds. This looks so much better than I was expecting!

Check out some exclusive pics via Entertainment Weekly and then catch the trailer below! Let me know your thoughts. Do you think this will be a standout film for Momoa and the DC Universe?

 

AQUAMAN hits theaters December 21, 2018!

Movie Review by Kristin: BRAVEN

I finally logged into my PrimeVideo app and saw that BRAVEN was featured. I’ve been wanting to check it out and now was my chance! Naturally, I couldn’t turn away because Jason Momoa. Am I right?

SYNOPSIS: A logger and his father head to their hunting cabin, hoping for a quiet weekend. Instead, they find themselves in a kill-or-be-killed stand for survival when they encounter a gang of ruthless drug traffickers.

This was a great movie. Jason Momoa is a beast as Joe Braven. It sucks that he’s sort of type casted into these tough guy roles, but the tough guy role was coupled with the family man role in this one & he balanced them perfectly.

Throughout the film, you feel this sense of urgency for the protagonists. Joe is trying to protect his daughter and his father, who is suffering from dementia. He’s trying to do the right thing for one person & it may not be the right thing for the other. It had me tense the whole time.

I would recommend checking this out. There were beautiful images shown during the opening credits that made me google where Braven was filmed lol. Google’s answer was Newfoundland, Canada (thanks, Google). The storyline was interesting and I think it was executed very well.

Check it out & let me know what you thought!

#MovieWednesday: Week 1 | Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The Princess Diaries and Justice League

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:

 

TV Series Review: FRONTIER | #frontier #netflix

frontier_tv_series[1]

SYNOPSIS: Follows Declan Harp, a part-Irish, part-Native American outlaw who is campaigning to breach the Hudson’s Bay Company’s monopoly on the fur trade in Canada. 

Ok, so the big bro (Mike “the Movie Guy”) gave me some homework a few weeks ago to check out a show called Taboo, starring Tom Hardy. I did, and I loved it (in fact, I should probably do a review for that one too!). After watching the first season of FRONTIER, I get a ton of Taboo vibes.

We all know that Jason Momoa plays the aggressive macho dude role really well (if you haven’t seen him on Game of Thrones as Khal Drogo, do yourself a favor and fix that!), but it kinda sucks that he’s typecasted into these roles. He’ll also be stepping into the water shoes of Aquaman, set to be released in 2018. With that being said, he plays the lead role of Declan Harp really well on FRONTIER. He’s determined to make heads roll, but still conjures up some sympathy from the viewers, which is what I like in a show.

The supporting cast is also great and full of lovely accents! You get some Native American, some Scottish and some of my own peeps, the Irish! There is a ton of cursing, some suggestive language, drinking and debauchery for those of you (like me) who enjoy a good F-bomb lol.

In comparison to Taboo, the quality is a little lacking. The throat-slitting happens way too easily, the stabbings barely produce any blood and sometimes the scenes in the tavern actually sound like a soundstage, but the show is still a great watch. I went into it with Taboo as a comparison, so if you haven’t seen Taboo, you might actually really like this one. I’ve seen both and enjoyed them regardless of production quality. With the first season being only 6 episodes, I’d say check it out. See what you think!

The show originally aired on Discovery Canada, but you can catch the first season on Netflix now. According to IndieWire, the show has already been renewed for a second season, so keep your eyes open for that as well.

Check out the trailer below, and then watch the darn show! Let me know what you think!
