Captain America: Civil War Spoiler Review

554b8a4d89081

Friday night I saw Captain America Civil War in theaters, which like how in the original Star Trek films Wrath of Kahn, Search for Spock and The Voyage Home are called a trilogy. This film along with Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron, make up an Avengers trilogy of sorts.

I was actually a fan of the first Captain America film and Winter Soldier is my favorite MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE film to date. Winter Soldier was a good film outside of the MCU, and it help change the look and feel of the films that came after.

When the news came out that the 3rd Captain America film would be semi based on the acclaim graphic novel CIVIL WAR, I was excited to see two of the MCU’s biggest heroes duel in  battle of right and wrong. Then Spider-Man and Ant-Man were announced to make an appearance in the film. Which OK I get why Ant-Man was in it, his film did good and Paul Rudd is a face people know. Plus he was in the comic. Spider-Man how ever always felt forced to me. Since SONY messed up another Spider-Man film they made a deal with the MCU to use the character in this film.

Let me get to the real SPOILER part of this blog:

The film begins in 1991, where we see the Winter Soldier being sent out on a mission to take out a car and steal some medical bags, we are never told really what these thing are. We learn later that its the same stuff Steve Rogers was given that made him Cap. America. Although, the only person who knew how to make that was the scientist who was murdered in the first Cap. America film. I guess they somehow found notes and recreated it? Also after we see Stark’s hologram of his parents leaving, and then clips of the night Winter Soldier look out the car in 91′, it was obvious that it was Tony’s parents who were in the car. Meaning Bucky killed his parents. Now this is not revealed to Tony until the very end of the film.

The whole motivation of the film to why Tony decides to sign the Sokovia Accords, is because a mom happens to be below a university waiting to meet him and show him a picture of her dead son. Who was killed in Sokovia.

We also get to see our “villain” for the film Zemo, what a waste of another MARVEL villain. He kills a former Soviet General who had worked on the Winter Soldier project we saw in the beginning. He’s motivation for killing people, is cause is wife and kids were killed in Sokovia. Really? So that’s why he killed Black Panther’s father and several others? We find out through Bucky that the stuff he stole from Tony’s dad was used to create more Winter Soldiers like him. They were all frozen and Zemo finds them, and what does he do when he finds them? He shoots them in the end and plays a videos showing Tony that Bucky killed his folks. How he knew Tony would show up, who knows.

Another wasted villain was Crossbones. Here’s a character we saw in Winter Soldier that is a big Captain America villain. In this film we see that he has a team that breaks into a building and steals a bio weapon. He then blows himself up, trying to kill Cap in the process. He’s stopped my Scarlet Witch, but she throws him towards a building with people…whoops.

How I would have done this film story is so:

Start it in 1991 like how the film does, with Bucky being told the lines that put him in a trance. We then see him Attack the car and taking the super serum.

We then cut to present day at the funeral of Peggy Carter. There is Cap, Falcon, Tony, Hank Pym and his daughter, Scott Lang, Black Widow, and the rest of the Avengers minor Hawkeye, Thor and Bruce. Like in the film we see we find out that Agent 13 Sharon Carter is related to Peggy. That an her an Cap have been romantic lately. It can be here where we have Ant-Man and Falcon reunite, Hank meeting Tony. and then Black Widow telling Cap that Crossbones is attacking a city in Africa.

Now this cam mirror what happens in the film a bit. What I would add is that along with Crossbones are these group of super like soldiers, who speak in Russian, are working along side him. They attack the center of disease control and try to steal a bio weapon. The Avengers like in the film stop them. They’re mission fails, but this group of super soldiers destroy a building killed many people. Crossbones and his team escape.

Like the film we cut to Tony’s hologram with his folks, but instead of him talking to a university we have him talking to a High School. He can be going on a tour, visiting High Schools and offering one lucky person a grant. There he can meet Peter Parker as he leaves and they have a mini conversation. Camera crews are out when a woman walks up to him acting like a mom who’s son is interested in the grant, only to reveal that her son was killed in Sokovia and his dreams died with him. Having this be LIVE on television we see Tony’s reaction and the worlds as well.

Much like in the film again, Gen. Ross meets with the Avengers and has then now working for the UN, which Tony agrees with and Roger saying no. We add in some lines to Cap about how can they trust Ross to not take advantage of the Avengers powers when he himself created an Abomination. Echo back the The Incredible Hulk film.

Cap now working with Falcon alone on this decides that he needs to find Bucky and see if he knows anything about these Russian speaking super soldiers. Bucky is still a wanted criminal though, so if caught he will go to jail.

We also find out that crossbones and the super soldiers are working for Baron Heinrich Zemo, who like in the film uses the information Black Widow leaked out to find out about the super soldiers and the Winter Soldier projects. We see Cap and Iron Man try to convince each other who’s right. We’re then joined by Black Panther, who is there to sign the Sokova Accords like in the film, when its attacked. Also like the film Bucky is blamed for it, when in reality it was the super soldiers and Zemo. They blame the attacks on Bucky and the governments of the world go after him. Its at this point someone leaked to Tony that Bucky killed his parents and wants him dead. With Cap knowing this the whole time, like in the film, after the events at the warehouse in Winter Soldier.

From this point we see a similar situations shown in the film. But Vision is also being held prisoner in the Avengers base, to not only protect Scarlet Witch who he likes, but because Tony feels responsible for his creation and makes a deal to make him safe. It didn’t make any sense to be why they would be afraid of Scarlet Witch and not the thing created by Ultron. We see a fight scenes between Cap and Crossbones mixed in. Zemo, like in the film, uses the soviet mind control on Bucky. Which still works on him. However as the film gets closer to the end Bucky is able to over come it and break the trance for good. He doesn’t get re frozen like in the film…that was stupid.

Also when Tony meets Peter Parker, he tells him he got selected for the scholarship and that he knows he’s the hero known as Spider-Man. So that differs a bit from the film.

The film ends with Captain, Bucky, and Iron Man fighting to the death. Its at this point where Tony knows that Zemo was behind it all, but is so taken over by anger still tries to Kill Bucky. Its also reveled that Zemo is actually Red Skull. After the events of the first film, the Tesseract sent him to where Thanos is. There he tells him of his world and Thanos uses him to help take over earth. Captain is about to pretty much kill Tony, after Iron man when a shot rings out. Its Crossbones, he snipes Cap killing him. Tony holds his dying body, as he looks out to where the shot came from. Bucky is cleared of all charges of the bombings, but is arrested for the crimes he committed as the Winter Soldier.

The film ends as it began, with a funeral. All the Avengers are there and Tony gives the eulogy. The Sokovia Accords go into effect. With the Avengers now part of the government, and some of the team is still in prison.

The first after credit scene is the Spider-Man one that was shown at the end of the film.

The after-credit scene is instead pays homage to the first Iron Man film. Tony walks into his house and much like how Nick Fury showed up in the dark, this time its Star Lord and the introduction is similar to that of Nick Fury. Tony is defensive and shoots his Iron Man hand glove at him. Star Lord moves out of the way and tells Tony that a darker force is coming.

BOOM, THE END!

So that’s my rant about Civil War and how I would have rewritten some parts.

If you haven’t scene the film, go watch it and make your own opinions.

Batman v Superman, why so much hate?

102597285-Batman-vs-Superman.1910x1000

I saw Batman v Superman opening day and I really liked it. Now the editing was a bit off at times, but i was drawn back in after those transitions.

People really have a problem with Superman, and how he was so dark and not the Donner Style of Superman. Well this is not the Donner world, remember that world later had Superman 3 and the Quest for Peace. This Superman was brought into a dark world, the type of world we live in now. He comes to this planet, stained and having to hid his powers that as a kid change him. He has to deal with hearing everyone’s thoughts, lazer eyes, this is a kid who growing up will have issues. He then loses his father who sacrifice his life to keep his son safe. Cut to years later he grows up and a bad guy from the past returns, attacks his mother, and his city. Causing death and destruction, he has to fight both them and our government. Then it comes down to him having to kill Zod to save humans, something that still haunts him. Which also shows the humans that Superman is willing to kill if he has to, even if its for “good”.

Also people are upset that Superman as killed at the end. We have to remember that even though this is the 2nd time we’ve seen this adaptation of Superman, he’s been on this planet for 3 years. Earth in this film has had Superman flying around for 3 years. In that 3 years he has had happy go-lucky-times with Lois and his life. When we come to this part of his life Batman is becoming more violent, and the government his coming down harder on him.

Then you come to Lex and many say he had no real purpose to attack Superman and Batman. He says in the film that his father lived a time where people threw flowers at dictators. He does not want to see that, so his plan is to kill Superman using Batman. Lex of course has a plan going past the death of Superman so he needs Batman out of the way. Which means ether they kill each other of as we see at the end Superman kills Batman and Doomsday kills Superman. The way to kill Doomsday after he kills Superman is with kryptonite, like how they do in the film. So Lex plans on having both Superman and Batman out of the picture anyway he can. If Superman did not die in the end I would have felt like it had no ending. He needed to die to redeem himself to the humans and for Batman to go back to his old ways.

I also liked how they introduced the future Justice League members. The Flash was cool, his speed force is more like real lightning, Aquaman was cool, and Cyborg was interesting because I really like that he’s a member of this team. Now I don’t know how a solo movie of him will work. Even the logos made by Lex Corp was OK with me, it didn’t take me out of the film. If we had seen that in an animated version no one would have a problem with it.

Now we come to the part everyone makes fun of. MARTHA! People are so mad that by Superman saying his mother’s name is also Martha makes him and Batman friends. No, the name does throw Batman off cause he thinks he’s talking about his mother at first and gets mad. Its when Lois tells him that Lex has his mother, who is named Martha. That’s when batman realizes that both him and Superman have been getting played. So he goes saves Superman’s mom and has Superman go fight Lex.

I will not understand why fans hate this film, it was good and I will be owning the uncut bluray!

Here’s Spidy!

554b8a4d89081

The new trailer for MARVEL’s Cap. America Civil War just dropped, and it was full of really cool action scenes, give us a more in-depth look at our characters and story outline. It also gave us our first look at the new Spider-Man, and he looks horrible!

Screen_Shot_2016-03-10_at_12.05.18_PM.0

I was so excited to see Spider-Man and even the way he was introduced was weak. Then the look of the costume and the really bad CGI. It looks like a cross between a bad cosplay and the Spider-Man from the 1970’s live-action show.

spiderman1-1

 

Plus his eyes do some weird motion like he’s deadpool or something. The Sam Raimi Spider-Man looked better then this. Plus the last Spider-Man suite was perfect. This just looks like a hot mess, and I hope I HOPE this is not the finish product.

Really I think putting Spider-Man in this film was just way to say sorry for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

We’ll see if they give us anymore looks at this new Spider-Man, and if those will be any improvement to this disaster.

Ghost Busters are back! Sort of…

The-AppStore-Pays-Tribute-to-the-Ghostbusters-Video-457692-2-xlarge

Today the trailer for the Ghost Busters reboot dropped, and it was funny.

Walking into this film a lot of people were not sure how it would turn out. Director Paul Feig gives us an all female Ghost Busters team with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.

I will say that is though, the being of this trailer looked a lot like the trailer for the Adam Sandler’s Pixels. Which everyone though was going to be a Ghost Busters style film with video game characters. If you saw the film you know that was NOT the case. So maybe the editor for that trailer was the same for this Ghost Busters trailer. There both produced by SONY so its possible.

Now lets talk about this cast. I’m not a fan of Melissa McCarthy or her comedy film, however she was good in the Bill Murray film St. Vincent. Kristen Wiig does not make me laugh in her comedy, she’s a good dramatic actor though, but in this trailer it shows that her character is more of the strait-man to the others. Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are the two full comedic characters. There two of the best actors on SNL and I was excited when they were cast in the film.

We also see that the weaponry has been updated, with proton handguns, and a bear trap like ghost trap. I’m excited about this cause its cool to see them have different types of proton packs. However this is not the first Ghost Buster film to show a new type of proton packs.  The very well made unlicensed Ghost Busters’ fan film called “Return of the (Denver) Ghostbusters. Watch the trailer below!

We also got a gimps of the new Slimer, which looks just like he did in the 80’s. Also we got to see Chris Hemsworth as Kevin the receptionist. He was one of the worst parts in the Vacation reboot, so I am worried about how he does in this film.

Now to the villains,  this shit gets crazy. We get all the monsters together in what I can guess a final act. We did  not get a chance to see the main badguy, but we did get a flashback to a familiar ghost. The library ghost returns in a new form in this film. She slimes Kristen Wiig.

I was pleased by this trailer as a fan of the original films, and hope that the keep some of the similar comedy styles those had and not add in bathroom humor, f-bombs, and so on.

“Kindergarten Cop 2: Just Cause” Trailer Review

kc2

Ivan Reitman’s comedy Kindergarten Cop has become a classic Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy. With lines that still get quoted today, “Who is your daddy, and what does he do?” “Shut uuuuup!”, “It’s not a tumor!”

So now 26 years later we got another sequel to a Schwarzenegger that no one asked for. However much like Jingle All the Way, Arnold did not return. Instead we get He-Man himself Dolph Lundgren! Yep  that’s right, this Chemical Engineer who has stared in about 5 films you can remember is the new Kindergarten Cop!

kindergarten-cop-2-dolph-lundgren-image-slice-600x200

The director of this film is not a stranger to directing sequels. He’s directed Tremors 5: Bloodlines, Sniper: Legacy, Jarhead 2: Field of Fire, and Lake Placid: The Final Chapter. All gems. The writer also wrote American Pie 2, The Book of Love, and also the canceled Pork’s remake. Great job Universal Pictures!

Then they give him a Chis Tucker like sidekick. The plot has similar elements to the original. With Dolph playing a cop who goes undercover as  teacher. Though in the original you have this story about a bad guy that has connections to one of the students, Big Mommy House stole that idea by the way. In this film its a finding a missing hard drive…exciting!

KINDERGARTENCOP2LUNDGREN

Much like how Zoolander No.2 and Dumb and Dumber Too arrived late to the sequel party, Kindergarden Cop 2 was never sent an invitation but showed up anyways. There’s a reason this sequel to a very funny comedy is going strait to Blu-ray, why a studio like Universal would green light this scares me. What a waste of time for everyone involved, I can’t wait to see what this movie makes in sales.

 

Furious Bourne Impossible Expendibales trailer review

I am a fan of the original Bourne Trilogy, I never saw Legacy, so when I heard that a new Bourne movie was coming out I was interested. Then I saw the trailer…oy vey!

The Bourne movie were homage to the classic spy thrillers from the 60’s, it had action and fighting, but this new trailer went all Mission Impossible and Fast and Furious. I think they did this because the franchise with Matt Damon

OpRUqb8

has been away for a while and in its place we’ve gotten several Fast movies and those trailers have cars blowing up. You have the line “we’re at at war! we need the perfect weapon!” Replace the Bourne character with Jean-Claude Van Damn its just another action 90’s B-movie.

giphy2

Bourne’s story ended with the third film, he found the people who made him what he was and got his revenge. Its going to be like commando or double team where the leader of a government group go find Bourne and tell him, “We need you back Bourne, one-last-time.” At first he’ll say “no, I’m done.” Then the bad guys will effect his new life in someway and he has to fight.

Fast and Furious 

If I rate the film on this trailer, I won’t be seeing it in theaters. Maybe the longer trailers will change my mind. Until then I’ll go back and watch the trilogy.

What if Lando was in Ep. 7?

using_slashgear_starwarstheforceawakens

OK so its been a month now since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was in theaters here in the US. Everyone by now has given their two-cents about what they thought of the film and some rumors for the next films.

One thing that really bothered me though was how the film had characters that served no purpose. Captain Phasma is one of the biggest ones, but her character can grow as the films go on. Max Von Sydow’s character Lor San Tekka however was a huge wast of a actor and actor. SPOILER: He dies about 5 minutes into film. With the lines given to him it make it sound like he had some important backstory to the Leia and the Rebellion. Also Kylo addresses him as like him and Tekka had a past. They may bring this up in the comics, but if you never read them, his character served no purpose!

This is why I think they should have replaced his character with, Lando Calrissian.

Lando-Calrissian_a679fe1e

Go with me…

You can take some of the same dialogue, and it would make sense.

“This will begin to make things right”, this could mean that Lando is still trying to make up for the events during Cloud City.

Lando would also know about the Jedi and the Dark Side so the dialogue about that would work as well.

“General? To me she’s Royalty.” That line is MADE for Lando’s silk Colt 45 voice!

The most important lines are when Kylo looks at Tekka and says, “Look how old you’ve become.” That would make sense with Lando, since Kylo is Han’s son and he would know Lando from childhood. Also the line, “I know where you come from. Before you called yourself “Kylo Ren”, is more relevant with Lando. That and the line about his family.

lando-calrissian-and-harrison-ford-han-solo-in-star-wars-the-empire-strikes-back-1645431026.0.0

Now we get to the part where the film could have given us our first gut-punch!

When Kylo strikes down Tekka killing him really does nothing to the story, and since we’ve never seen this character before gives us no emotional connection.

Now think if that character was replaced with Lando. BOOM!

Killing Lando in the beginning would show us the audience and fans that this film is not playing around. Also, when else can you put Billy Dee in the series really? Kylo would have not only killed his dad, but his “uncle” as well.

Unfortunately we will never see this happen, but a fanboy can dream!

 

 

Spaceballs II: The Schwartz Rises

So Mel Brooks said that if he were to make another Spaceballs film, he would release it when SW EP.8 opens so that way he could get some of that SW CASH!

Now this is most likely will never happen, but if it did this is how I would write it.

We cut to 30 years since the original films story line. Planet Spaceball has been liberated from the evil spaceball empire. President Skroob as begun to rebuild with his new right handed man Lord Silver Helmet. Lonestar has disappeared, and Princess Vespa is now Queen of Druidia.

Bring back Bill Pullman as Lone Star and Daphne Zuniga as Princess Vespa, who’s now Queen of Druidia.

with Sara Silverman as the new droid i-Mac7.

Cast Audrey Plaza as the daughter of Vespa and Lone Star. Plaza’s character is also looking for her father after the evil Spaceballs start attacking once again.

Plaza and i-Mac7 bump into Jay Pharoah’s character who is looking for Lone Star cause of the bounty on his head by Don Pappa-Jon. They both decide to team up and look for a pilot. that’s where we see Barf’s son Chunks played by Bobby Moynihan who’s a Pilot of the famous Winnebago.

Through their travels Plaza’s character starts sensing something, following leads they go to Planet Hollywood to meet with Yogurt. Who is now living off the merchandise from the first film, he then tells Plaza that she is strong with the Schwartz like her father.

As for the villains I would cast Charlie Day as the new Dark Helmet called Lord Silver Helmet, and the joke is that you make fun of his voice box and make it sound like a bad fast food voice box. So he has to open his helmet to be heard correctly. I would also cast Ben Schwartz, who was one of the voices of BB-8, as the Gen Hux type character. I’d make him a bit flamboyant also. Then of course you have to bring Mel Brooks back as the Supreme Leader Skroob who is now disfigured from a bad plastic surgery to seem younger.

You can have shameless cameos from Star Wars actors and other celebrities.

Hire Bobby Moynihan, Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney and Taran Killam, and Key & Peele to write the film.

I think if done well this could be the spoof movie that redeems the bad spoof movies we have been given.

Spaceballs2

The worst movie of 2015 was…

vacation_2015_movie-wide

Vacation!
Yep that’s right, the unnecessary and unfunny sequel/reboot to the classic Vacation series.

I did not laugh one in this film, I’m sorry I did laugh when Chevy Chase was on screen…for less then 10 mins.

Ed Helms is awful in the role of Rusty Griswold. He works great as a side character like in the Hangover, but he’s not a main lead comedian. Nothing he does in this film even came close to what Chase did in the other films.

Christina Applegate was a waste of a talented comedic actress. She was the strait-actor to Helms idiot character. Beverly D’Angelo did better in the wife character role, and has aged better then Chase.

The kids in this film are the WORST characters in this film. The older brother is not funny at all and really just a sad character. Then the little brother was written so poorly, he was mean and vulgar for the sake of being just that. There is a seen where the whole family is singing and the little brother just calls his brother something vulgar for no reason…I don’t remember what it was cause I’ve blocked most of this film out of my brain.

There’s also these two subplots that re introduced that go nowhere. One has to do with a rival pilot played by…ugh WHY did this actor sign on to do this movie! Ron Livingston of Office Space and Band of Brothers…Ron how did they drag you into this film? So in the beginning of the film we see this one-shot scene where I guess the Helms and Ron characters have some bitter rivalry. It’s never mention again till the end of the film, and even then it sort of just begins and ends like in 2 seconds.

The other useless subplot is the other brother’s love interest. She pops up here and there through out the film, its cute scenes but it has no pay off. I thought they were going to have it where she was the daughter of Ron Livingston…nope her character was just some random girl.

Then we get our 2nd…no 5th Handed Cousin Eddie family with Thor and Leslie Mann. Leslie Mann plays the same character she always plays in comedy films…so not funny. Thor is your new Cousin Eddie, he lives in Plano, Texas. Being from the area I can say that’s no where in Plano, Texas I’ve ever seen. And of course he plays it was the stereotypical Texan, with movie cowboy shirts, has long horn on his ranch house property, and everything looks like the inside of a Cavenders store. If you don’t know what that is, google it. He’s not funny in the slightest, and the big dick joke falls flat…”pun”. It makes me worried for his performance in the upcoming Ghost Busters reboot. Actually this whole film makes me worried for that film!

Looking back there is one scene besides the Chevy Chase scenes that made me giggle. This one has to do with the cameo by Daryl Dixon himself. Watch and see if you giggle a bit.

In conclusion I’ll say this, go watch the original films and skip this piece of garbage that spit on the memory of Harold Ramis and John Hughes.

My Favorite Films of 2015

  1. CREED: Now let me go on recorded and say that the only Rock film I’v seen (partly) was Rocky Balboa. That being said I was excited to see CREED. The cast and director/writer were good, and this was the first “Rocky” film that Stallone did not write. Which is huge because he created this universe, so he know’s them better then anyone else. So when award winning writer/director Ryan Coogler decided to create this story, he’s biggest hurdle was Stallone. However when Stallone heard him out and saw what he wanted to do with these characters he gave the OK! From that we got this obvious Academy Award Nominated film called CREED. The story of the bastard son of Apollo Creed, who has the fighting spirit in him as well. So he is raised by Apollo’s widow, who does not want him to follow in his fathers footsteps. Well that does little to stop Adonis from quitting his job and going to find his fathers formal rival Rocky to help him train. As the film goes along we see this unlikely father-son relationship between Rocky and Adonis. Rocky as the ageing fighter who’s wife and brother-in-law have died, and his son who has moved away to Canada. Now as we saw in Balboa, Rocky and his son  do not have the best relationship. Adonis never knew his father, so meeting Rocky is like meeting a figure like his father. Rocky then gets to train Adonis, much like how he wanted to train his own son. What I’m about to say may seem crazy but, Stallone is a good actor. Watch Copland and you will see how he’s more then Rambo 4. If he does not get nominated for an Academy Award PROTEST IN THE STREET! He is terrific in the film! So not to give the whole film away, this does have some simulates to the original Rocky film, but it also has some new elements that helps creates a new universe in this franchise.
  2. Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens: I waited 2 years for this movie to come out, I would read rumors, talk with friends about what the story could be, and I got a ticket to a movie just to see the Star Wars teaser on the big screen. Now I’m not one of those super fans of the franchise, I do own all the films and the Holiday Special on DVD, but when it comes to the books not being “canon” anymore does not bother me. I had a conversation with a 5O1st member about this and he agreed, why would you want movies fully based on the novels? Non of it would be a surprise, it would take some of the fun out of Star Wars. If I had to rank this film with all the other ones it would be #3. Empire Strikes Back as #1, and A New Hope #2. To read more about what I thought about the film click HERE to read my spoiler review.
  3. ANT-MAN: Again if you want to read my full review on this film go HERE to read my Spoiler Rant. To summarize my thoughts on the film I would but this high on my list of one of the best MARVEL movies to date. The film was so funny, and you can still see how some of the elements of a Edgar Wright style in the finish film, but Paul Rudd was perfect casting! Such a breath of fresh air from all the dark, dramatic stories that we have been getting from the MCU. I put this film above my number 4 pick because I knew nothing about this character or the story and I was blown away by the cast and script. I don’t know how the sequel may turn out, the MCU has a bad streak when it comes the the sequels, minus The Winter Soldier. If you have not seen Ant-Man go rent it, and if you have a 3D disc player watch it in 3D!
  4. Jurassic World: Jurassic Park was the first movie I saw in theaters as a child. It’s still one of my top favorite films, its sequels how ever are another story. Now I did own the 3D board game of The Lost World, and had some of the toys. I saw the 3rd film in theaters and walking out I knew that I had just seen one of the worst movies ever made. So when it was released that a new sequel to the franchise was getting made, I was interested to see what they were going to do. I liked the director and the writer, they did one of my favorite indie films “Safety Not Guaranteed”. The film was good and a lot of fun, but it was CGI heavy, where the original had a least a real door to the opening of the park. Also not all the Dinosaurs in the original film was not completely CGI, this film was fun but lacked the aww-ness the original film had. That being said, THE ENDING SCENE WAS AWESOME!!! I own this film on bluray-3D and I’ll be watching it again!
  5. Entourage: OHH YEAHHHH, OHH YEAHHH! This is not one of the best films of the year, but after being a fan of the series and getting short-sheeted by the series finally this film was a the ending I wanted! It had all the classic elements of the Entourage series, BABY BRO!, HUGS, HOUSE PARTIES, LLOYD!, SEX-DRUGS-AND CAMEOS! I loved every part of this film, if you’re looking for a plot…Vinny and the Boys are making a movie, but Vinny may have problems with the movie, so Arie comes in to help Vinny with the movie, meanwhile E and his GF are having peoblems, Turtle has women issues, and Drama is trying to get a job. That pretty much sums it up…and I LOVE IT! OHHH YEAHHH, OHHH YEAHHH!
  6. Specter: Bond is back and its remaking all the characters from the Connery era! We have Q, the old man M, Moneypenny, the 63′ Aston Martin, and now Blofeld is back! They cast Christopher Waltz as Blofeld and its the perfect casting, now they so make him Bond’s sudo-brother. The plot is a bit confusing and I felt they really underused Blowfeld and Bautista’s Mr. Hinx, I hope they at least bring back Bautista, his fate is left unknown in the film. Also his character comes out of nowhere and is never mentioned by name. Its hard to beat Skyfall, and Sam Mendes did return in the director chair, but where the action excelled in the story aspect was lacking.
  7. Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation: The only other Mission Impossible I’ve seen before this was the first film, and I did’t like it. So compared to that film, this film was way more fun and enjoyable.
  8. Furious 7: Again walking into this film I had not seen any of the films in the franchise. Since seeing the film I watch the first two films and to compare this to those is not fair cause its nothing close to what they did back in the yearly 2000’s. The first film in the franchise was OK, the sequel was a better story in my opinion. The NOS was a huge factor in both films and it was more about the cars. Now its more about the action, much like Mission Impossible. The reason I have this one listed here is because Mission Impossible got me more interested in a franchise I knew nothing about.
  9. Pitch Perfect 2: Saw this film with my fiancee and yes its silly and dumb, but it made me laugh and dare I say it pulled at my heart-strings with the Boomer and Fat Amy scenes. Also I thought the villains were fun in this film, the original film didn’t really have a “bad guys” so to see them face a group that really is nasty was nice. Best supporting actor in the film was the cameos of Keegan-Michael Key, his comedy is golden and always makes me laugh. Elizabeth Banks is a great diverse actress and does a good job taking over the director chair. I’m interested to see what they do with the third film.
  10. Avengers: Age of Ultron: So you maybe wondering why I have this list so low on my list, its because I was really not blown away by this sequel. Coming off Winter Soldier this was a really plain sequel that only serve to spin off the other films in this series. Also its the same plot as the first film, which films seem to be doing a lot lately. The best part in the film is the Hulk vs. The Hulk Buster, its full of action and funny lines. Ultron is an eh villain, Loki did it better in my opinion. Also I felt they sort of forced the whole Infinity Stones stuff in the film, Thor comes in and explains it all in one sentence and that’s it. We also got to see where Black Panther lives, to set up that film franchise. You can tell Joss Whedon creativity was limited in this film, he really made his own film with the first Avengers. That could be because the films that came before it really were there own standalone stories leading to the Avengers film. With the sequel it sort of just set up the story plots of the next few films.
  11. The Ridicules 6: Oh boy, now Adam Sandler is not comedy god and his films are not comedy gold. That being said, this film was far better then Pixels. Was it a good film, oh no, but it had moments that made me laugh. To read more about my thoughts on the film click HERE.

Now I want to say that I didn’t see every film of 2015, and I still have Ex-Machina on bluray to watch, so once I watch it I’ll add it to ether my fav or hated list.
