New look! New posts! New everything!

Hello lovelies! After a bit of a hiatus from the blogging world, I have returned! I’m not sure how many of you are excited about this but nonetheless, I bring you fascinating news:

– New site design coming! Since this has turned into a solo endeavour (unless some of you are interested in collaborating, contributing, etc.) I have decided to spruce up the blog a bit.

– I am going to try (very hard) to post daily.

– And as always, I am always looking for contributors! So please, do not hesitate to send and share your ideas. Creative collaboration is always awesome!

I have a lot of catching up to do in terms of posts and discussing topics of interest to all of you and I will provide!

I hope you all have had and are still enjoy what’s left of this lovely Summer (here, near and far!).

Watch “Man of Steel – Official Nokia Exclusive Trailer [HD]” on YouTube

Nokia released the final trailer for Man of Steel yesterday. Check it out because it is pretty awesome.

One week until the movie opens and I’m sure it will top the box office for its opening weekend.

I want to avoid the opening day rush and will see on Sunday.

Are you guys stoaked for this movie or what?!

Will The Purge live up to the suspenseful thrills it promises in the trailers?

The Purge is out in theatres today and while this highly unrealistic story line seems intriguing enough, something tells me it may not live up the suspenseful thrill it promises in the trailer.

Set ten years in the future, The Purge is about a family’s fight for survival in a 12-hour free-for-all in a city where all crime is legal and all emergency services are suspended.

The film is apparently a social commentary on the “system” favoring the wealthy, blah, blah, blah.

Maybe I’ll check it out this weekend and write a nice, little review about it.

Happy movie watching!

Archie live-action movie coming soon??

Here you go all you Archie fans, a live-action film may soon be in existence, according to collider.com. Warner Bros. is in development to turn Robert Aguirre Sarcasa’s Afterlife with Archie comic apparently to be directed by Jason Moore.

The plan is to put Archie and his gang in a similar situation like Evil Dead. I’m going to go ahead and assume like Bruce Campbell’s Evil Dead because let’s be honest, a serious Archie zombie movie? Come onnn.

I’m not really a huge Archie fan. Actually, I’m not at all but I figured this could possibly be good news for Archie and zombie fans alike.

Only time will tell…

Friday Film Releases – Post-apocalyptic Earth, aliens and bank robbing magicians

Tomorrow is Friday (woot!) and not only is it the start to the weekend but it is also new release day for big movies! I go to the movies at least once a week because that’s just how awesome my life is (cough). Seriously though, I enjoy watching movies as I am sure most of you do too and I scour the web looking for new trailers for upcoming blockbuster hits and indie darlings.

Below are a just a few of the bigger releases happening for May 31st.

After Earth

Post-apocalyptic movies are more popular now than ever and with the not-so-great success of Tom Cruise’s post-apocalyptic effort Oblivion, let’s see if this latest effort lead by Will Smith and his son Jayden Smith, will top the box-office its opening weekend.

The History of Future Folk

After a huge success at the Fantastic Film Festival, The History of Future Folk will be released to the general audience. The movie tells a story about a pair of aliens from the planet Hondo who invaded Earth to destroy it. However, after hearing our music they decided to become a blue-grass folk band and rock the world. A quirky sci-fi action comedy type movie that I’m the general audience may not appreciate, but I will most definitely check it out. As should you. Let’s see if this film will be as well received as it was at festivals.

Now You See me

When I heard the premise of the film – a group of illusionists robbing banks during their stage performances and rewarding audiences with the cash, never keeping any for themselves – I chuckled a little. While I can appreciate the original effort in a time where sequels, prequels and remakes is what is ruling the box office, I can’t deny that my first thoughts were that maybe this film might flop. However, this movie can take me by surprise and actually be a fun watch. Featuring some big names like Morgan Freeman and Mark Ruffalo, this movie may just be able to become a summer blockbuster hit. With a score by British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers, it might not be that bad.

Inside Llewyn Davis – New film by the Coen Brothers

Watch the new trailer to Joel and Ethan Coen’s newest film, “Inside Llewyn Davis”, a movie about a folk singer travelling around 1961 New York through the Greenwich Village folk scene trying to make it in the music business. It was so well received at Cannes this year that many are expecting this film to be the Coen Brothers’ best yet. A new comedy with a more melancholic tone, some of the cast features John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberland, Garrett Hedlund, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver of “Girls” fame. It is expected to be release later this year.
