  3. Suicide Squad Is Here!

    Suicide Squad Is Here!
    Suicide SquadOk, so let’s talk about Suicide Squad... It may not have received glowing reviews from all of the critics, but that hasn’t stopped people flocking in their thousands to catch a glimpse of DC’s best bad guys! The Stars We’ve known the stars of this movie for a long time now and marketing weren’t shy with the teasers and clips. Margot Robbie was the perfect blend of sexy and kooky for her role as Harley Quinn. It will definitely be one of the most iconic roles of her career and we hope to see more of her in upcoming DC movies! Will Smith will always be a great action hero and Suicide Squad proves he’s still got it. He’s stern, strong and the perfect person to play Dead Shot. He also delivers one of the best comedy lines of the movie when referring to the Doomsday machine as a “swirling ring of trash”. Apart from little snippet’s and stills, we didn’t get to see too much of Jared Leto’s Joker. He definitely made this role his own with sarcasm and psychosis that rivals Jack Nicholson’s rendition. Heath Ledger did leave some very big shoes to fill and we’re not sold that Leto was the man to do it. Continue reading →

Ghostbusters In 1984 the world was given the gift of Ghostbusters with the original movie starring acting legends Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver. The Ray Parker Jr. theme tune “Who You Gonna Call?” was catchy, the acting was comical and the action was spot on. What more could you want? Well a sequel of course! While it wasn’t as big as the original, it still received high praise. Since then, it has kept a strong cult following and merchandise has always been available with that iconic logo. Now we’re getting a re-boot... An all female one at that! Continue reading →

  15. May The 4th Be With You!

    May The 4th Be With You!
    We’re still riding on the buzz of Star Wars “The Force Unleashed” and now we’re excitedly anticipating Rogue One: A Star May The 4thWars Story! With all the hype, this is sure to be the biggest May the 4th yet! May The 4th This is a date in the diary of every Star Wars fan across the globe. While Star Wars Day isn’t considered an official holiday it is celebrated worldwide by the adoring fans of the Star Wars films. The date was an obvious choice due to the pun of “May the force be with you”. Not only the 4th, but the 5th of May became part of the celebration with “Revenge of the 5th” a play on words of the Star Wars movie “Revenge of the Sith”. May is special for many reasons for die hard Star Wars fans as it is also George Lucas’ birthday on May 14th and also because all of the original 6 live action films were released in may. Why Lucas Film did not pioneer Star Wars Day, they were certainly happy to embrace it and join their fans in celebrating it each year. In late 2012 Disney bought Lucas Film, including the rights to Star Wars and since has held Star Wars themed events at their parks during the month of May. After the huge success of The Force Unleashed we can all breathe easy that the franchise is in good hands. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this household name in Sci-Fi greatness.

Superman dies..... Batman Vs Superman So if you’ve seen Batman Vs Superman you will know that it is basically just one giant DC Easter Egg!

Diana Prince (Wonder Woman) is seen to be opening meta-human files of Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg in the order of the films upcoming releases. Batman’s Knightmare scene hints that Darkseid will soon make an appearance as it contains both his parademons and his Omega emblem.  Even Green Lantern’s love interest, Carol Ferris, has a cameo in the new movie.
