Glass Review – M. Night Shyamalan returns to conclude his trilogy

Glass is a difficult movie to describe. Is it truly a superhero movie? Maybe, there are plenty of references to comic books as well. And yet, Glass is a M. Night Shyamalan movie. There are twists and turns, not all of them great, and the viewer is obligated to pay attention to not miss any details for when the ending comes. Officially Glass is the third movie in what is being called the Eastrail 177 trilogy. And what is odd is that the director has forced Glass to be the final movie in the franchise. You see, without wanting to...

Kong: Skull Island Review – The big ape manages to throw more than just a wrench

Kong: Skull Island Review Yesterday evening I viewed Kong: Skull Island at the cinema. After watching the trailer a few times I could still not make up my mind to go and watch it. As Ghost In The Shell is still a few weeks from release I decided to take the risk. What is the worst that could happen? It did not end up being the movie I was expecting. So what was I expecting? I hate monster movies, I dislike silly popcorn movies – save for a few guilty pleasures – and I dislike CGI. Little of that mattered in this...

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released - Super Iron Man suit

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released

Due to the leak of an copy of the Avengers Age Of Ultron trailer online Marvel has decided to officially release it a week earlier. Set to the tune of an alternate version of Pinocchio’s ‘there are no strings on me’ we have a 2 minute and 16 second Ultron fest. The Avengers by comparison seem defeated and divided, but of course it wouldn’t be a movie if the superheroes aren’t rock bottom during the story. At this stage it is too early to say what the movie’s premise is other than the villain Ultron’s attempt at taking over the world. Ultron is voiced by...

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD Slowly the news is starting to trickle in about the second season of Agents of SHIELD. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 23, 2014. I think most people interested can be split into two groups. The first group want to see more of the Marvel Universe because they are fans. While the second want to see if the show will be cancelled. Despite some good reviews during the latter episodes the ratings barely rose. According to some the ratings actually declined and stood at a little above 5.5 million. Which is less than...

Agents of SHIELD season 2 sneak peek trailer

Preview of Agents of SHIELD Season 1 Finale

Yesterday we finally got the news that ABC’s Agents of SHIELD has been renewed for a second season. Half way during its first season it was touch and go as the ratings kept dropping. They finally stabilized at 5.5 million viewers watching on TV with a total 9 million viewers including those using DVR. That is by no means spectacular but ABC seems to have few options. Luckily, the quality of the show has improved considerably. I recently had time to watch the first half of the season and though I liked it a lot better during this second viewing I could...
