The Disaster Artist Movie Review - Should You See It?!

the-disaster-artist-posters
Tommy and James
The Disaster Artist is definitely worth seeing. It's actually worth seeing more than once (which is what I'm going to do because I loved it so much). I haven't had this much fun in a movie since EVER!   James Franco is a spot-on Tommy Wiseau who plays the character Johnny in The Room and James is amazing when he recreates The Disaster Artist scenes from The Room . Because James Franco put in so much dedication to this role, he is a wonderful Tommy and a wonderful director for the movie in general. He even stayed in Tommy's character when he was directing the movie! That being said, I think in order to really enjoy this movie, you'll have had to see The Room first. Trust me, you will enjoy it!!! I saw it for the first time a year ago and I have probably watched it at least...

Thor Ragnarok Review

ThorRagnarok1
ThorRagnorak3
Our resident teen reviewer IzzyLFC gives his verdict on Marvel's latest movie blockbuster, Thor RagnAron.   Thor Ragnarok is without doubt one of the greatest Marvel movies ever made. It was well balanced with action and humour. Director Taika Waititi creates an unexpected but definite masterpiece.                   Synopsis: Thor is on a mission to prevent Ragnorak, the Asgardian apocoloypse alluded to in previous MCU movies such as Avengers 2. He confronts Surtur the fire giant of Musphelheim, who will play a key role at the end of the movei. Loki has taken over Asgard by impersonating Odin. Eventually the rival siblings find Odin only to realise that the All Father's ancient reign over Asgard is at an end.

Stranger Things 2 Review

Stranger-Things-Poster-Featured-10222017
Strange2
Geek Genie's very own teenage geek IzzyLFC runs the rule over the Netflix smash hit, Stranger Things Season 2.   After the massive success of Stranger Things Season 1, which I binged watched in 2 nights, Netflix released the second season of this critically acclaimed series. And it did not disappoint, it was brilliant…or should I say terrifyingly brilliant! Summary - After Will returns from the upside down, he still has post-traumatic stress and sees a humongous shadow figure in the upside down. Eleven is alive and living with Hopper in secret, she also finds out more about her past. Mike, Lucas and Dustin find a new member for their crew called Max and Nancy, Steve and Jonathan have to go Demogorgon hunting once again. Positives - Characters are more likeable such as Steve and Bob Newby A new and scarier Monster or Monsters Sub-plots in the show, for example...

Which actor played the best Spider-Man?

5942647-4965911914-spide
Iron Man and Holland
One thing is for sure: every Spider-Man movie is guaranteed to be filled with action and excitement. Even so, the acting of the masked hero varies. We now have 3 different actors that have donned the Spidey suit on the big screen. They have all put in great effort, but who is the best? Let's weigh the options.   Tom Holland is a new and fresh face for Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He really connects with the younger audience members. He has the funny factor of Spider-Man, but does he pull off the nerd aspect of Peter Parker? He seems like too much of a cool kid. Let's be honest...if he were in our high school classes, he would be the most popular guy in school. He also seems like a flat-out crony of Iron Man. He'll sometimes be dealing with situations on his own, but he'll usually have Iron...

The Top 10 Moments From The Marvel Cinematic Universe

MCU

Thor Ragnarok is less than a month away! How exciting! I'm going to be looking at the top 10 MCU moments ever to hit the big screen...and by the way, no post-credit scenes will be included!

 

10. "The Hand" - Thor the Dark World

ThorHand

This scene was a true shocker and left us with our mouths wide open. It also showed the true brilliance of the character we all love to hate, Loki. After agreeing to work with Thor to face Malekith "The Accursed", he supposedly betrays Thor by slicing his hand off. We are all screaming the word "typical" to Thor's face and calling him gullible for trusting Loki the god of mischief, however what was to come was truly shocking. Loki reveals Thor's hand was just hidden by his trickery and Thor summons Mjolnir just like that.

9. "Dormammu, I've come to bargain!" - Doctor Strange

580fa82cf2574

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The scene we all remember from Benedict Cumberbatch's brilliant performance as Doctor Strange. When Strange's greatest foe makes a fantastic appearance, Stephen uses the powers of the time stone to basically annoy the hell out of Dormammu causing him to spare Earth in order to escape the eternal time loop. Memorable and hilarious.

8."Is that the best you can do?" - Avengers Age of Ultron

avengers age of ultron concept poster 578x299 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A triumphant scene for the MCU, showcasing all the Avengers new and old destroying and dismantling Ultron bots around the Vibranium. It showed the true strength and teamwork of the Avengers ending with a typical statement by Thor..."Is that the best you can do". Ultron responds with hundreds, if not thousands more Ultron bots.

7."The Rainbow bridge" - Thor

thor had to destroy the bifrost or rainbow bridge in order to stop lokis powers from destroying the helpless frost giants

Mixed feelings present for this moment occurring in one of the best MCU movies ever. Many things happen when Thor clashes with his mischievous brother Loki, and is forced to protect Earth by destroying the Bifrost. This causes Odin to wake from his sleep and attempt to save what's rest of Loki. A sad ending with falling into the abyss...but that wasn't the last we saw of him!

6."We're the Guardians of the Galaxy" - Guardians of The Galaxy

1487611402221

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Guardians of the Galaxy was an unexpected blockbuster. Who would have thought that an 80's space themed comedic action film would have been so charming? A central theme running through the MCU is the fate of the Infiniti Stones. Starlord and the Guardians risk it all by absorbing the Power Stone and destroy Ronan the accuser saving Xandar from destruction.

5."Bucky?" - Captain America The Winter Soldier

Captain America The Winter Soldier 2014

In my opinion without doubt the greatest action film ever to be made. The second installment of Captain America was titled "The Winter Soldier" which sparked confusion within movie fans but pure excitement for comic book fans. A mysterious assassin to appears to have murdered Director of Shield Nick Fury. His mask is removed on the awesome battle of the highway and is revealed to be Cap's best friend from his WWII days...Bucky! Steve Rodgers is shocked and caught off guard leading to his arrest at the hands of Brock Rumlow AKA Crossbones.

4."I am Iron Man" - Iron Man

maxresdefault 2

The movie that launched the MCU. The origin story of how Tony Stark became Iron Man. This one scene describes billionaire Stark perfectly. Where most superheroes battle to keep their identity a secret, Stark's (in)famous ego means that at a packed press conference he at first denies any involvement with Iron Man, but then stuns the world by declaring straight faced..."I am Iron Man". And thus was born the MCU.

3."I will bathe the star ways with your blood" - Guardians of the Galaxy

ronan ship

The first appearance in an actual movie for the big baddie of the NCU, Thanos!. He shows his true power by frightening the hell out of the feared Ronan. Thanos' look is perfect and is plucked straight from the comic books. After dealing with Ronan like a naughty child, he leaves us with his signature bad boy grin!

2."Avengers Assemble!" - The Avengers

the avengers marvel studios

 

Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye arrive by jet. Thor arrives with his magical hammer Mjolnir. The Hulk leaps his way to action. Finally, Iron man joins the team to face the Chitauri and the Levaiathons. The perfect scene for the Avengers to Aseemble!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1."Underoos" - Captain America Civil War

fd85cd64472974ddd01cd2f024afd56d128aa93ce66dc02ec8e16adefdb0fec5

 

One of my favourite MCU scenes! So much happens! Heroes go toe to toe in mortal battle. Marvel's most iconic character makes his first ever appearance in the MCU...and it doesn't disappoint! Spidey on Team Iron-Man against Cap's Team...iconic!

The Top 10 Episodes of CW's The Flash
maxresdefault 7
With the recent release of the much anticipated season 4 kicking off, Geek Genie takes a look at the best 10 episodes of The Flash . 10. "Flash vs Arrow" S1E8 Flash vs Arrow may not have been the craziest episode ever but the 2nd part of the Crossover was a brilliant episode since it was the beginning of many crossovers to come. Action packed, full of great fighting scenes whilst also giving audiences a glimpse of the great friendship between Oliver Queen and Barry Allen.   9. "Flash of Two Worlds" S2E2     The 2nd episode of my favourite season of The Flash , Jay Garrick acts as a mentor to the Flash teaching him the ways of the speedforce. This episode contains a scene that mirrors the iconic comic book cover from The Flash #123   as well as featuring the return of Harrison Wells...but not as...

Cruise to Launch Universal Monster-verse with The Mummy

Cruise to Launch Universal Monster-verse with The Mummy
Tom Cruise
Universal Pictures will finally get their wish with a shared universe for their iconic monsters and it all kicks off this summer.   It's been a long time coming and quite a few false dawns, but Universal Pictures will finally get their wish. This summer will see the launch of their very own "monster-verse" with the release of The Mummy. Briging all the Universal monsters together in a shared universe has often been seen as a mission impossible, so surely if anyone was going to lead a successful charge for Universal it would be Tom Cruise.  Cruise will play Nick Morton and will be a pivotal character in the universe moving forward. The story is set in the present day, a departure from the traditional period setting for most Mummy iterations.                     The Mummy will also introduce audiences to Dr.Jekyll played...

"Justice League Action" Delivers Hard on the Action

"Justice League Action" Delivers Hard on the Action
JLA1
DC Comic's new animated series 'Justice League Action' premiered in the U.S. this Friday, December 16th on Cartoon Network. This is the newest successor to the Justice League TV franchise, the last one being 2006's 'Justice League Unlimited'. The first episode, an hour long special, featured a plethora of DC heroes and villains, including, Superman, Wonder Woman, Constantine, Swamp Thing, Plastic Man, Martian Man Hunter, Black Adam, The Parasite, Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin) and Batman, voiced by the one and only Kevin Conroy. That's right, Kevin Conroy the man who voiced Batman in 'Batman: The Animated Series', and the 'Batman: Arkham' series has returned to reprise his iconic role as the Dark Knight himself. This review won't go into specifics about the episode as to best avoid spoilers, just my overall impression of the show.

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director
Rick Famuyiwa The Flash Banner1
Warner Bros look for their third Director for the Scarlet Speedster. Rick Famuyiwa has left Warner Bros. looking for their third Director for the upcoming Flash movie. Citing creative differences, Famuyiwa released this statement:    "When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash , I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor. I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humour and heart. While it's disappointing that we couldn't come together creatively on this project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for oppportunities to tell stories that speak to fresh generational, topical and multi-cultural point of view. I wish Warner Bros. DC,...

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back After "Homecoming"

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back After "Homecoming"
c6104b3946b8663eb7e13ad22507c945c8b05553
With the introduction of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the recent box office hit  Homecoming , Geek Genie takes a wistful look back at Sam Raimi's original trilogy of movies in the naughties...starting with  Spider-Man . When a young teenager by the name of Tom Holland appeared in Captain America: Civil War , it was the first time a teenager was depicting a teenage Spider-Man. Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield and long before him Nicolas Hammond, were all mid to late twenties when they were web spinning so most of fandom were happy that Spider-Man was truly returning to his roots with a physical depiction of Spider-Man more true to the original character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. So how does the Maguire Spider-Man now fit into the cinematic mythos? In terms of continuity, it doesn't exist as Marvel only recently reached an agreement with Sony to...
