x-men-origins-wolverine1

I just watched the leaked version of Wolverine.  I know all of the reviews out there are negative but I really didnt hate it at all.  The first hour was garbage but the second half was acceptable.  I dont think you can really get the full effect of a movie like this without all of the special effects and CGI being completely done.  Im sure some of the edits are not in there either. 

If I was to base my review solely on what I saw today in the rough cut of the movie, I would  honestly suggest seeing it.  It was fun, and kept moving.  The thing about my review is that you have to realize that I completely hated the last X-men movie, I thought it was complete shit.  So for me this movie was a big step up. 

Ryan Reynolds was garbage as usual, I think he is an asshole and he plays the same role in every movie Ive seen him in.  Liev Schreiber was actually fantastic as Sabretooth, I was completely caught off guard by his role. I expected him to be horrible.  Taylor Kitsch is one of my favorite up and coming actors, if any of you watch Friday Night Lights the series on NBC, you will know how awesome this kid is.  The problem is they really screwed his part over, didnt give him enough screen time and he somehow has the disease that Storm(Halle Barry) does in the first 3 movies, his accent comes and goes throughout each scene.

Check it out, it would prob be visually stimulating in the theatres.  Dont expect much and you will be happy.

I happened to run into a sneak preview of this movie, it doesnt release in Theatres until April 24th.  Im assuming after watching this movie that it may never release and may go straight to DVD.  Starring Thomas Jane, Ron Perlman, Devon Aoki, and John Malkovich for 10 minutes.

This was probably the biggest piece of shit Ive seen in a few years.  Tom Jane, used to be one of my not so hated actors, but now he is on the list.  I liked him in DreamCatcher, and the first Punisher(yes I liked it.) But this movie really just sucked hard!

A Post Apoctalyptic War between the continents which are all controlled by corporations is blown and all of the sudden they accidentally open a vault to a machine where the apocolypse started. The machine turns people into Mutants…

So Tom Jane, a Fat Mexican, Hell Boy, a Mute Priestess, a Nazi, an 2 Asians,  and a Black British guy all decide to save the day and go into the pit to blow up the machine with a magic book and a locket or some garbage. 

It was seriously just so horrible I dont know why Im even writing about it, maybe just to warn people not to waste their time.  I saw the preview and thought it looked decent but was sorely mistaken.  The filming was even horrible, it was too dark the entire movie and hard to make things out even in HD on a huge screen. 

 

Stay away, and if  you see Thomas Jane in the streets..Tell Him To STOP MAKING MOVIES..Maybe Try Broadway.

The Beastmaster starring Marc Singer is on my top 100 movies of all time.  I can remember seeing this when I was a kid.  Pretty much the premise is that an evil sorcerer(played by Rip Torn) is told that if he doesnt kill this little baby the baby will grow up and kill him.  So he sends his minions to kill the baby, when they steal the baby out of the mothers womb they implant it in a cow and then the cow delivers the baby.  Ha yes the cow is the surrogate moother..

He grows up with the power to see through animals eyes and use their senses. He befriends what looks like a Tiger painted black, a falcon, and a pair of ferrets.  Honestly if your not into watching this after that description, I probably dont want to ever talk to you in real life. 

He sets off to find his families murderer and adventure ensues.  Tanya Roberts also costars, she is Midge from That 70’s show, but back in 82 she was dead sexy.

This movie is worth a watch if you see it on tv or happen to find it on Netflix, which is where I found it.  You can stream it on Netflix for free so why not do it?

HOLY SHIT! YES THE NEW Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, the third remake in the string of 70’s and 80’s huge horror movie remakes has just signed Jackie Earle Hayley to play Freddy Krueger.

Hayley best known for his portrayal of Bad News Bear Kelly Leak in the original 76 Bad News Bears is what I would say is the perfect call on this.  When I heard they were redoing Nightmare it was hard for me to imagine anyone other than Robert Englund playing Freddy,but I think this may be acceptable.   It didnt matter for Friday the 13th, or Halloween because the characters are masked and pretty much walk around like assholes and kill stuff, but Freddy is all attitude and character.

Hayley I really think can pull this off, after seeing Little Children(fantastic movie), and his role in Watchmen(the only one that didnt suck balls) Im really geeked about this.

 

Ill keep this up to date and try to get as much info as I can.
