New ‘Planet of the Apes’ movie to be made in B.C.


Pop Goes The News — Cameras will roll in B.C. later this year on the third movie in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise.

War of the Planet of the Apes follows last year’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Those two films — which were partly made in B.C. — grossed a combined $1.2 billion worldwide.

Fant4stic (2015 Review)


The fantastic 4 have not had a good run when it comes to movies. Their first attempt in the 1990’s was made purely so Fox could keep the property rights and was never meant to be released. The second and most well known film from 2005 and its sequel in 2007 may be entertaining for kids but are generally seen to be not that good. And now we come to the 2015 version of Marvel’s first family. From the start Fantastic 4 (or Fant4stic) was just a mess with rewrites and reshoots taking place when the film should have been in the editing suite. Director Josh Trank was even said to have been destructive on set.

Instead of following the origin of the previous film, Fant4stic takes the characters away from space and into another dimension which is accessed through the combined efforts of Reed Richards (Miles Teller) and Victor…

Five Reasons Why Fantastic Four Movies Fail

Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights

I will immediately preface this post by saying that my familiarity to this franchise extends only to the four films as well as the mid 90’s cartoon which I haven’t watched since then. Though I have heard other descriptions of how the team works in the comics, at least before it was cancelled by Marvel earlier this year. This team of heroes has gone through three different iterations, none of them have been critical successes, one of them wasn’t even released, and only one was much of a financial success. It doesn’t seem like it should be that hard to adapt this family of four heroes with unique powers that act together as a family, I mean the Incredibles was able to do it, so why can’t the Fantastic Four? Here are a few reasons why I think it’s been so difficult.

Yet Another Fantastic Four Movie Review



So a new movie came out this weekend.  It’s called Fant4stic.  Or Fant-Four-Stic.  Or it might be a movie in Klingon called Fan T’Four Stic, which probably translates to “career suicide by way of a jagged dagger” or something just as violent sounding.  Oh, wait, that guy on the far right looks like Marvel’s ever-lovin’ Thing!  This is the Fantastic Four!  That’s what this is!

Oh jeez…  Checking the internet to see more about this Fantastic Four flick, I’ve found that a lot of people are talking about – and not favorably.  [Insert frowny face here.]

Well, I guess it’s time to throw my two cents into the shit-Storm (see what I did there? Admittedly, I’m stretching).  Continue on to read my SPOILER-filled review!

After a summer of not going to the movies a lot the last week of July was a big movie going week for me. I went to the movies three days in a row. The first film I saw on the last Tuesday of July was “Southpaw”.


The biggest reason I saw this film was for Jake Gyllenhaal followed closely by Rachel McAdams. Since I hadn’t been to the movies all that much this summer I never saw the theatrical preview for the movie, as a result I was unaware of certain plot points. For that I was extremely grateful. All too often previews spoil some of the biggest events of a film.

I’m not the biggest fan of sports movies, in general, but there is something about boxing movies that I find riveting. Maybe it’s because I grew up watching the “Rocky” movies with my parents but there is…

Is Ben Affleck Going To Have His Own Batman Trilogy?

The Movie Bee

So, this is all just rumors and speculations, but I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about.

Den of Geek reported that a couple of days ago a screening of BvS took place for the crew and the Warner execs, and the response was so positive to the movie in general and to Affleck in particular (the source used words like “standing ovation” and “definitive Batman”) that WB wants to “work their movie universe around Ben’s Batman” by producing not one standalone movie like they initially planned, but and entire trilogy. That would lock Affleck to play the Caped Crusader for at least another 10 years.

Later in the day Deadline reported that Warner Bros. has pushed back two films that Affleck will be starring in, which would give more credit to the “Golden Deal” rumor.

Frankly, I think it’s too far-fetched. If the big guns at Warner wanted to make…
