Jason Sudeikis And Ed Harris Star In Trailer For Netflix Film ‘Kodachrome’

Here is a movie you probably haven’t heard much about. ‘Kodachrome‘ stars Jason Sudeikis and Ed Harris as son and father. Sudeikis plays a struggling A&R executive at Spitting Devil Records. He’s on the verge of being fired unless he can snag a band from Sony. And it should not surprise to you learn that Harris plays a dying, miserable old guy.

Billboard explains:

“In the Mark Raso-directed drama, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, Sudeikis ends up taking a road trip with his long-estranged, terminally ill father, played by Ed Harris, to Kansas to the one remaining photo lab that can develop old rolls of Kodachrome film that Harris’s character, a noted photographer, took decades earlier and desperately wants to see before he dies. Conveniently, the desired band just happens to be on tour in a city along the way to Kansas.”

Elizabeth Olsen plays Harris’ nurse in the film, which is scheduled to premiere on Netflix April 20. It’ll also be released in select theaters. The early reviews for this movie aren’t great, but they aren’t terrible either. It looks to be a completely average film.

Jeremy Renner And Elizabeth Olsen Star In First Trailer For The Thriller Film ‘Wind River’

You probably haven’t heard a lot about this movie, but it should be on your radar. Wind River is the directorial debut for Taylor Sheridan. Why should we be excited about that? Well, because Sheridan wrote the screenplay for the wonderful 2015 film, Sicario. So we all know the talent is there.

Another reason why you should be excited? This film has an excellent cast. You have Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jon Bernthal.

Wind River follows a rookie female cop (Olsen) who teams up with a “veteran, local game tracker with a haunted past” to investigate a murder on a Native American Reservation.

The movie is already getting great reviews from critics. It currently has 23 fresh reviews and just 4 rotten. And if you’re a fan of legit thrillers, it looks like this film will satisfy your craving.

Time Magazine’s Stephanie Zacharek had this to say about the film…

“There’s something to be said for a well-crafted motion picture, cinematically astute, that demands that we sit down and pay attention for a solid two hours or so, with no intermittent fridge runs.”

Wind River will be released August 4, 2017. Check out the trailer below…


Movie Review: Captain America Civil War


So this was probably one of the most anticipated movies of the spring, despite the fact that it was up against some intense competition, with Jungle Book and Mother’s Day being strong performers. However, I was pretty sure this one would take the number one spot, as it’s already set records outside the US. And for once, a big budget blockbuster is pleasing critics and hitting all the right notes with audiences.

And it had a lot of notes to hit.

The film opens in 1991, with a frozen Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) being thawed out for another in a series of murderous missions. One after another, the code words needed to activate the killer are spoken: “daybreak … furnace … homecoming … freight car …” Flash forward to present-day Lagos, where an Avengers squad made up of Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) is foiling the theft of a biological weapon. There’s a shit ton of casualties and it all goes downhill for the Avengers from there when they have to submit for government oversight.


There’s a lot going on, but they managed to balance it pretty well. I never got too confused, despite a cast of what feels like millions. They go through ever doggone country in the world and tie in every other franchise that Joss Wheaton ever read a comic on, and they never stop moving. All the actors blended into their characters, and there’s a lot of characters to keep straight.

But for the most part, I still knew what was going on, because the plot’s pretty straight forward. They don’t want to deal with United Nations regulators telling them what to do, despite the wake of destruction they often leave. It doesn’t become a one sided argument, because it argues the point from both sides. I mean, when you see what they leave behind when they’re being heroic, you can kind of see the government’s point.

“Yeah, guys, you got that lady’s purse back from a mugger, but there were 45 civilian casualties and your caused $85 billion worth of damage to the city. Maybe next time, don’t start with the nuclear option?”


It all eventually culminates in one of the best battle scenes I’ve ever seen. It should have been confusing, or too much, but it wasn’t. The direction is subtle but the action is perfectly choreographed, which is why I never felt like it was too much, when this movie should be the definition of too much. There’s a method to this madness, and I didn’t even resent the over the top ads for future movies.

The latest offering of Captain America is a misnomer, because it’s got just about every other character you can think of. But it’s extremely well-done to the point where you can follow it easily. It’s controlled chaos and worth the watch. It’s one of those rare movies that’s critic and audience approved and should not be missed.

Movie Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron – Easy, Stupid Fun With A Ridiculously High Budget

The summer movie season rolled out with the first big blockbuster of the season. The much anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron is finally out. While not the best in the series, it certainly looks like the most expensive.

The premise is this. Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) has created a villain. Ultron was initially designed to protect the planet earth. Of course, because it’s artificial intelligence, it immediately becomes an evil robot bent on world domination.

When will people learn?

The avengers, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) all get together to save the day. As if there weren’t enough main characters to remember, be prepared for a couple more including Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and sister Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen).

The humor that made the first few movies good is still there and fans of the comic books series will appreciate some of the tongue in cheek comments, like why Thor is the only one who can lift his hammer. There’s a few side stories going on where the writers try to inject some humanity into their characters, by showing the burgeoning love affair between the Black Widow and Hulk, as well as Hawkeye’s rural life.

Despite that, this movie is nothing you don’t expect. It’s easy, stupid fun with a ridiculously high budget. Everything unfolds as you’d expect and it’s pretty much a paint by numbers big budget action movie. They didn’t climb too far out of the box on this one.

It’s absolutely CGI heavy, with extensive battle scenes filmed from impossible angles, with people doing impossible things. While visually stunning, it feels a bit like the battle scenes were padded out for the purposes of fleshing out a simplistic script.

Everyone reprises their characters with the same enthusiasm as they had in the first few movies. That’s a feat in and of itself, as they’ve all been at this for a while. Iron Man is still charming, the Black Widow is still creepy, and everyone still wonders why Hawkeye is even there.

This is Joss Whedon’s last direction go around with this franchise, and I will say he went out on a high note. The movie is well done, fun to watch and easy to follow. It’s exactly what a big budget blockbuster should be, and Whedon has managed to keep it going for awhile now. Here’s hoping when someone else takes the helm, it will be just as good.

There’s already a new one planned, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1, that is expected out in 2018. This is a franchise that has still managed to not lose its steam and will probably be around for a long time to come…as long as they keep making money.

While a bit heavy on battle scenes and CGI, it’s still a commendable effort and was the perfect start for the summer movie season. If you’re looking for fun that won’t make you think so much, this one is worth the watch. .

Introducing the Marvel Movie Marathon and the Avengers: Age of Ultron Marathon Trailer (Video)!

58921LThis is the type of news we like to start the week with.  This is the season where Marvel fans go completely out of their minds with anticipation.  I would have to say this is pretty cool for just movie fans in general.

How does 29 hours of all 11 Marvel movies released since 2008 sound?  To my girlfriend that probably sounds like a nightmare, but to my collegeroommate (who is now 34) it sounds like two amazing days off of work.  This is all going to go down at AMC and Regal Movie theaters located around the country.

Fans who actually manage to stick around for the entire thing will be rewarded with the first showing of Avengers: Age of Ultron!

So far Regal movies have identified 4 locations and AMC theaters have many more locations but will not be showing all eleven Marvel films.  Here is how they breakdown:




They will be showing all 11 films.  If you live in the following cities you are in Luck:

Ontario, CA,

Atlanta, GA

King of Prussia, PA

Houston, TX


Ultimate_Marathon_onesheet1 (1)

Amc will be showing only 6 but they have many more locations, including some that are very close to me.  Here is their list of cities:

Atlanta, GA,

Baltimore, MD

Boston, MA

Chicago, IL

Cincinnati, OH

Dallas, TX

Denver, CO

Detroit, MI

Hosuton, TX

Indianapolis, IN

Jacksonville, FL

Kansas City, MO

Los Angeles, CA

Miami, FL

Minneapolis, MN

New Orleas, LA

New York / New Jersey

Philadelphia, PA

Phoenix, AZ

San Diego, CA

San Francisco, CA

Seattle, WA

Tallahassee, FL

Tampa, FL

Toronto, ON

Washington, DC


I advise you to visit both sites for the latest most up to date information and Advance ticket sales.



I can’t believe you don’t know what a marathon trailer is!  And you call yourself a movie fan?  Of course you don’t know what it is because I made the term up.  It sounded much better than a “mashed up, long ass” trailer, but that’s exactly what it is.

A Youtuber by the name of JohnnyB2K (cool name), has decided to take all three Age of Ultron trailers and link them together in chronological order.  I think he did a pretty good job despite all of the petty Youtube comments on the sound quality.  To those people pressing thumbs down I say, “Where’s your trailer”.

JohnnyB2K tried to put everything in chronological order to the best of his ability.  The order dictates a lot of the story so it will be interesting to see how close he got.  People are complaining about spoilers from this trailer.  Maybe they missed the part where he just used the EXISTING TRAILERS. People, it’s not that serious.

Maybe I will see some of you on April 29th.  I will be the guy wearing one of those hats that holds the drinks on each side and an adult diaper on.  Can’t afford bathroom breaks.  Enjoy the trailer!

Movie Review: Godzilla (2014)

344757,xcitefun-godzilla-movie-poster-5The beginning and the end are entirely two different movies

2 Stars

You know what made the original Godzilla awesome? How much it sucked. Terrible special effects, laughable dialog that didn’t match the actor’s lips, and a ridiculous premise joined together to create an absolutely platinum standard in ‘so bad they’re good’ movies.

The movie starts in the late 90s, with Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston), an American engineer who works at a nuclear power plant near Mount Fuji. Earthquakes are ripping through the Philippines and moving their way to Japan. As a result of these tremors, Brody’s plant breaks apart with much bloodshed. Then comes 15 years of brooding, as Brody can’t get past that day. We get to watch the fascinating site of him studying charts and zoology books. For all this buildup, we get to watch some tremors before finally, monsters show up.

And we root for the monsters because by now, we just want this awful movie to end.

This movie is a lot like being served a strange multiple course meal. The beginning is a soft boiled egg, boring and tedious and not too hard on your digestion. Then, all the sudden, the chef comes back and dumps 17 gallons of extra spicy jambalaya in front of you.


The beginning and the end are entirely two different movies. And for a movie that is called Godzilla, you would actually expect to occasionally see Godzilla.

Turning this classic into a major motion picture does not work. Anyone remember the mistake they made in the 90s with Matthew Broderick? Terrible…

Look, if they really want to remake Godzilla, they need to make it in the spirit it was intended. Screw the plotline, get to the monster quickly, and then have it destroy things for no reason while a bunch of confused looking extras run around screaming.

It worked for Cloverfield. I hear that movie cost $49.99 to film. Seriously, all they used was an iPhone and a lizard.




This movie was a joke and it doesn’t seem to understand the spirit of the original Godzilla at all. Instead, it bores us for the first 45 minutes, and then barrages us with way too many things for the second half. I could not keep all the monsters straight and to be entirely honest, I don’t know if this is racist to monsters, but they all looked the same to me.

If you just want to watch some stuff get thrown around, then I would recommend watching the first 10 minutes of this movie, and the last half an hour. But if you were a fan of the original, chances are you won’t be a fan of this one. In fact, it will probably remind you a lot of the mistake they made in the late 1990s trying to do one of these.

Hollywood, if you want to make a successful Godzilla, I highly recommend getting away from the convoluted plot lines and high end special effects. Instead, you need to make your movie a symphony of badness. B actors, plot turns that make no sense, and monsters that look like puppets are the way to go. Because the truth is Godzilla isn’t supposed to be scary. It’s supposed to be so bad it’s scary.  Watch the Official Trailer below:

New Banner Poster Released for Godzilla


I have to admit, I’m not very excited at all about this movie, but maybe it will build as time goes by.  I also have to admit that this damn banner poster didn’t do anything for me either.  They have positioned it for a May release which is an honor as it’s the gateway to the summer Blockbusters.

For hardcore Godzilla fans this will be a must see.  However for casual fans not so much but there are two draws.  One, similar to his counterpart Aaron Paul, the big screen is the first time we will see Bryan Cranston after the ending of the award winning Breaking Bad.  Just like James Gandolphini, after the Sopranos ended, I was a fan of anything he did.  Second, Watching Godzilla do work in Imax has got to be awesome.

I might have just talked myself into some excitement.
