Things Avengers:Age of Ultron got wrong!!

Nerd Bud

This contains spoiler!! After watching AoU four times, I can gladly say that the movie is Spectacular. And it gets better every time you watch it. Fan had such humongous expectations from the movie, usually that can be bad for the movie. Remember, The Dark Knight Rises?? But AoU takes that weight of expectations and flies with it over the finish line.

I know there are people who are criticising Joss Whedon and the movie, but they are just some uptight snobs who probably never picked up a comic or watched a cartoon in there lifetime. Go watch ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ again, losers!!! AoU is a movie made for the comic nerds, by a comic nerd. And its Awesome. I won’t say that it is perfect, it’s not. I won’t say that it’s the best superhero movie, it’s not. But it will still find a place in the top bracket…

New ‘Terminator Genisys’ International Poster

We Geek Girls

Terminator Genisys_International PosterSynopsis:

The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.

Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-Hun Lee, JK Simmons.

Movie Review: ‘Mad Mad: Fury Road’

Funk's House of Geekery

Director: George Miller

Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne

Plot: Still running from the demons of his past, former cop Max Rockatansky is trying to survive in the post-apocalyptic desert of the near future. He is captured for use as a ‘blood bag’ to sustain the radiation infected resource hoarders of ‘The Citadel’. From there he gets caught up in an escape attempt by the demented ruler’s harem.

Review: I spend my days working with teenage film students in Australia, and you’d be surprised how few of them are familiar with Mad Max, let alone seen it. At best they know it from references in other pop culture. So let’s recap.

Awesome Aussie film-maker capped out the era of Ozploitation (see doco Not Quite Hollywood for more information) with the down and dirty Mad Max. In it Mel Gibson played the original hero, a cop in…

Supergirl is here, but can she save her own teaser trailer?

DockeMovies

Supergirl is here, but can she save her own teaser trailer?Our first look at Supergirl, CBS’s attempt to breathe new life into DC Comic’s legendary heroine, is here, and depending on who you ask it’s either the most delightful video you’ll see all day,

or a disaster waiting to premiere.

Check out the video above, because there’s plenty of spoile

rs below.

Kara Zor-El, the aforementioned Supergirl, is a 24 year-old coming to grips with her own superpowers. The entire 6 minute, 30 second teaser is a highly contrived affair that is clearly meant to evoke several classic movies and television shows. Let’s tally up the references, shall we?

First, there’s definitely some The Devil Wears Prada in here, with Calista Flockhart playing Kara’s overbearing fashionista boss, Cat Grant. But there’s also a weird roommate dynamic as well. We seem to have a little bit of Don’t Trust the B—-…

Set Dressing We Are Not

Macamedia Nut

Judging by the media buzz surrounding the Shit People Say to Women Directors (& Other Women in Film) blog this week one might think sexism in the film and television industry is a fresh revelation. I guess the surprise, if it’s genuine, is comforting, because perhaps it explains the collective shrug this issue gets on a regular basis.

As a woman who has worked on various television shows and films I can tell you that the fast-paced world of media production is conducive to abuse in general. Time is money. HR departments are sometimes all but non-existent, the culture permits blunt insult and hierarchical tyranny, and vindictiveness silences many. Of course, there are plenty of wonderful people as well, but in no other environment have I seen such a dearth of consequence for abysmal treatment of one’s coworkers. Civility is often the first casualty of a stressful production environment. If you want to thicken your skin, work…

Review on Avengers:Age of Ultron

taliezsparkle

G’day mates. Ok I don’t even know why I did that but yeah. I am feeling a bit of the Australian spirit rn and I don’t know why. Well my life is really messed up. I can’t change that. Anyways today I am goin to talk about the newest Avengers movie I saw yesterday. There will be spoilers but I will make sure you know what to skip if you haven’t seen it.

So I saw the movie on Saturday with my bestie, Margaret ( who is actually a guy but we tease him with it. No he isn’t gay that would be my bestie), my bestie since birth and my soon to be goddaughter/godsister. Actually two other people were supposed to join us but they couldn’t make it. So anyway to the movie. I am a really huge fan of sci-fi movies and stuff but I didn’t read the…
