10 Most Anticipated Films of 2016: Jordan’s Take

Originally posted on Jordan and Eddie (The Movie Guys):
Will Batman vs Superman live up to the hype? Accounting for both cinema and home audiences, 2016 appears to have a strong line up of blockbuster and awards fair, as well as independent and genre offerings worth getting excited for. Cultured viewers will appreciate franchises such as Underworld returning, hopefully as immaculately constructed as ever, and I’m predicting some quality to be found in an adaptation of one of 2015’s most popular novels. Please note also that these films are included based on their Australian release dates, and some may have already been released in other territories. Of course sometimes the very best films are the ones that come out of nowhere and don’t feature on these types of lists, but I hope you can agree and see reason to be excited about the below 10 titles!

*NEW* THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART TWO REVIEW *NEW*

Originally posted on The MAD MOVIE RANTER:
The relentless bestselling blockbuster franchise comes to a close. Did it fly high or flop like a turkey? As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts by the Capitol, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow (Donald Sutherland), while all she holds dear hangs in the balance. And now it comes to an end. A billion dollar franchise that spawned more bestselling adaptations than I could take and launched the career of one of Hollywood’s top leading actresses. Was it all worth it? After four films with one being split into two parts, did it conclude to my liking? To an extent, it did. A mixed bag would be the best phrase to sum up my thoughts. A little disappointing after all that promise and build up. Now, I will admit straight off the bat. Like I normally do. I have never read the books BUT speaking with fans, they have generally been impressed…

Films I love

Follow my blog with Bloglovin As Joseph is on my PS4, I thought I would create a new blog post. Even though I uploaded one last night, I am rather bored and thought I would upload a short-ish post on the films that I adore with all my heart. Now, I’m just wondering if I should just leave it as a simple bullet point or just a brief description as to why, I love these films. I will probably add a little description as I love talking about films. I could go on for a while, so be warned! My all time favourite film would be The Labyrinth, hands down. I love this film with a passion it is a classic 80’s film. I first loved this because of a musician that goes by the name of Bowie. David Bowie. I love him in it, such a good film. Second would be The Company of Wolves. Again, another 80’s classic however I watched this when I was…

SELF/LESS REVIEW

Pace less BUT for all the negative press, I still found this quite watchable. A dying real estate mogul (Sir Ben Kingsley) transfers his consciousness into a healthy young body (Ryan Reynolds), but soon finds that neither the procedure nor the company that performed it are quite what they seem. It may have been cliched, plot hole ridden and a little patchy in places BUT the action sequences were fast, fierce, racy and Reynolds was on fine form. AND for a good portion of the film, I was entertained. The opening act was slow burning but intriguing. A slick and ruthless Kingsley delivering DeNiroesque gravitas to the role of the ailing billionaire. To be honest, I would have been happy to watch his normal life as the dying mogul. His lesson with a young rival was compelling stuff. BUT the sloppily put together relationship with his estranged daughter? Not so much. It’s great to see Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery popping up in more movies. But not in such weak supporting…

Fandoms

Just to clarify, I RESPECT EVERYONES FANDOMS AND HAVE NO REASON TO INSULT OTHERS. Except for One Direction, the Beliebers and Twilight fans. I’m sorry, you suck. Me and my friends are all on different fandoms (yes I have friends) I’m a SuperWhoLockian, plus Harry Potter and the Avengers, even though I don’t watch Supernatural. Quite a lot of my friends love anime, one likes the Holy Emo Trinity and Creepypasta, another loves Once and Pretty Little Liars. It goes on. (We’re all members of the Phandom though) Which fandoms you’re in tell a lot about a person. Like seriously, a lot. Also don’t insult other people’s fandoms. You’ll then get the entire fandom rising against you. And that person you’re terrified of will be in that fandom (FACT) Those are my relatively wise words. To be fair, you probably could have found exactly the same kind of thing in any blog, or vlog, but hey. Peace out.
