OMG!

This Press conference with Fake Prez is a TRAIN WRECK OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!

He's babbling. He's not making any f*cking sense. He is absolutely rattled and doesn't know how to handle this.

And yes, he absolutely told that Female Reporter to "SIT DOWN". That is going to come back and bite him in his fat ass big time.

Ha! That's awesome. Did you also catch that they shot it in 4:3 to represent the original video aspect ratio? BTW, how the f*ck is it that Al never ages?

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)
3 Stars out of 5

Trailer


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Nxc-3WpMbg

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is nowhere near what the first film was. I can't quite put my finger on it, but this one was actually too much of a "comedy" in the sense that what we get is not a homage to all things spy-related, but more or less a parody this time around. Don't get me wrong, there's some great stuff here, especially the opening scene as well as the fight scenes. But I think the pacing was a big off and I wasn't particularly digging the story motivation of Julianne Moore's villain of drugging (releasing a virus) and then holding the world hostage. The way her character was written was just weird. Her demise was satisfactory either. It's what the entire movie is building toward and it just fell flat. Hated to see Merlin go. He will be missed if there is a Part 3 on the way. As for both Halle Berry and Channing Tatum, they really aren't in the movie as much as you think based on the trailer. And speaking of the Trailer, out of all the trailers I have ever watched, this one was and is still the most egregious of them all. I remember when the trailer first dropped and they ruined, RUINED by telling everyone that Colin Firth as Harry was back and alive. Seriously, WTF! How does a trailer get made and then get signed off on to release with a major twist like that still intact? Okay, enough ranting. I do have one thing to ask, how and why the f*ck was Elton John in this? This is the biggest head scratcher of them all? Mind you, he is funny as hell and it's just just a single cameo. He pops up throughout the movie and each time being better (and funnier) then the last. So, the movie is worth a Rent, nothing more than that.

Borg Vs. McEnroe (2018)
3 Stars out of 5

Trailer


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgfFdEOGUqE

Borg Vs. McEnroe kind of follows the same format as Battle of the Sexes in how they go about telling another iconic Tennis Match. Where Sexes failed, Borg V Mac get's it right due in large part to a compelling backstory told in flashbacks. On the surface, you automatically think that this movie is about McEnroe. It's not. This is all about Borg and the lengths he goes to to become the best player in the world. Mac is more or less a side character here. I love how they set up and then ultimately play out the match. If you don't have any idea of who wins, you will absolutely be on pins and needles the entire time, which I was because I totally forgot who won in the end. So, that was kind of cool to not remember the outcome and get to experience this match again. With that said, the movie isn't perfect, but it's definitely worth a Rent.

Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel - Official Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1BCujX3pw8

Captain Marvel is the one that I've been very interested in for a while now. With Wonder Woman kicking down the door for female-led superhero movies that actually succeed both financially and critically, I have my eyes on Captain Marvel to continue the momentum. And since it's in the MCU, I fully expect this to dominate at the box office and the trailer gives me a lot of confidence it will do exactly that. Great treat to see both Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg popping up in the trailer in their respective roles as Nick Fury and Agent Coulsen. Come on, that didn't make you geek out just a little bit? Brie Larson's career is about to go into a whole new level for sure.

Paul McCartney - Fuh You

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWYlWvtEyio

I dig the song. It's really good. Super catchy. But, what's up with the Song Title? Is he purposely censoring himself? Is it suppose to be tongue-in-cheek? Everyone is going to sing it the way it's intended to be sung and I don't mean 'Fuh' either. Kind of reminds me of Cee Lo and his F*ck You song and the radio friendly Forget You song. No, I know there isn't an uncensored version of Fuh You out there. Paul would never go there. Anyway, check out the song if you haven't already done so.

Tomb Raider (2018)
3 Stars out of 5

Trailer


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ndhidEmUbI

Tomb Raider was a movie I had high hopes for in large part because of the current Reboot of the game series. I really thought THIS would be the movie that finally got it right when it came to video game to movie translation. Sadly this continues the tradition of underwhelming performances. Granted, Tomb Raider isn't bad. It's just a decent flick for what it is. My issue is that I thought this was going to be a literally translation from the Reboot Game (it's not). It takes some things from Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider and then just makes up a completely different narrative. They get the tone and look right, but not much else. I think the biggest problem is how little respect the writer and director showed to what Tomb Raider is all about: Solving Tomb Puzzles! Furthermore, they took way to long getting there. Even worse is that once we get there, it's just a couple of Puzzle solving scenes and then that's it. This is what is at the core of the game and it should have been what drove the final hour of the movie. As the movie wore down, I kept saying to myself, "there is no way a sequel is getting green-lit in spite of all the seeds they are laying down regarding Trinity". If they move forward, they need to bring in a different team that actually uses the game as it's blueprint. Not just "inspired by". As for Alicia Vikander, I actually like her as Lara Croft. I just wished they took the script more seriously to give her something to work with. Worth a Rent on a rainy day. Nothing more.
