Star Wars Rebels

The Jedi have been wiped out and the Empire spreads tyranny through the galaxy. Hope runs thin. But on the small planet of Lothal a big change is looming. A group of rebels meet a 14-year-old con artist named Ezra and soon it’s clear their destinies are linked. Aboard their ship, the Ghost, Ezra and the rebels embark on an adventure to ignite a rebellion and strike back against the Empire.

Words can not express how excited I am to see this animated feature after watching Star Wars The Clone Wars for 6 years. I was very disappointed when it came to an end but Disney did not want to disappoint and hopefully this will be just as good with just as many characters. It takes place after the Clone Wars with some very different characters, and the Dark Side have taken over, the Storm Troopers are here. In October we get to see the Rebels and how they face the Dark Side, this is going to be Epic.

GreenLanternTeam

Green Lantern: Animated Series

For once a show that really explored the Green Lantern Universe, and the animation grew on me, I’m not usually too keen on CGI but this combination they got it right. The characters really filled their place with the right type of drama. Only to be suddenly cut off and now no more GL when there is still so much to explore and so many enemies to face. The thing about the Green Lantern Universe is that they have so much material to work with that they can literally keep this show going for decades with an excellent story line, but it is yet another show that met it’s end prematurely.

StarWarsBG5

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

For Five Years I have been following this show and craving every episode, I just love the way it was developed and now, I have to wait until the movie next year or the new animated series which is called Star Wars Rebels. I don’t know where its going to pick up but I loved the characters in this show, especially the bad guys, they really put a lot of depth into the characters, it doesn’t feel like some kid show. I’m almost done with season five, I just hope they didn’t leave us hanging, now that Disney bought it out I just hope they don’t turn it into a kiddy show and keep the dignity that the Star Wars animated franchise has.

Young Justice

They built an amazing storyline, which had a hell of an ending, I was honestly expecting more for next season only to find out that it has been cancelled. They sort of picked up where the original Justice League left off and that was an amazing show too, now I don’t know what they have planned but for something as serious and as well done as these animated shows, they have some big shoes to fill.

Review: Oz The Great & Powerful

OZ1

A small-time magician is swept away to an enchanted land and is forced into a power struggle between three witches.

OZ2

This is one of those times that you realize that you can’t get this time wasted back, I wish I saw another B-rated movie, at least in that case my expectations wouldn’t have been so high. A Disney movie with an amazing line up of actors and a reinvented old story, it was bound to be good, or so I thought. People said that John Carter was bad, but in my experience, it was misunderstood and a very good movie, they just marketed badly, this movie got a lot of marketing, and it was just a disappointment. I remember watching Alice and Wonderland and that was an exquisitely done remake, and I even remember how great Johnny Depp was as the Mad Hatter, he was seriously mad! But this movie was not good, and everything felt off and I was waiting for something to go right, I just didn’t know what it was, and James Franco is an excellent actor, but this wasn’t a good fit. I wish I didn’t go into this movie.

Turbo Trailer

From the makers of Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda, Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail who kicks into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes, Turbo learns that no one succeeds on their own. So he puts his heart and shell on the line to help his pals achieve their dreams, before Turbo-charging his own impossible dream: winning the Indy 500.

This Snail movie looks like its a lot of fun, something different yet familiar from the guys of Dreamworks. It looks like its going to be fun, enjoy the trailer.

Review: Snow White & The Huntsman

In a twist to the fairy tale, the Huntsman ordered to take Snow White into the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector and mentor in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.

I might have had higher expectations then what I should have when going into this movie, at times it surprised me but mostly it bored the hell out of me. People to my left were playing with instagram in the movie theater and people to my right were having a conversation about “Nora’s” Dinner party (No clue who Nora is). The movie just didn’t catch my interest as the story went along, and its a little too long, at some points it loses you because they are trying to tell a big story and introducing new characters. The main thing is that so many characters are introduced that you don’t really get attached to the main characters. Chris Hemsworth is the Huntsman and he does a pretty decent job but he is no Thor, I think that was one of my mistakes. Kristen (Or the Girl from The Vampire Movies) just didn’t work too well for me, I don’t know why but she didn’t fit. The star of the movie though was Charlize Theron she really knew how to play the evil queen/witch, and she played her part well. They tried to make a great movie and tie in the original snow white story but overall it didn’t cut it and don’t waste your time with this movie.

Review: John Carter

Transplanted to Mars, a Civil War vet discovers a lush planet inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter a princess who is in desperate need of a savior.

I didn’t know what the total story of the movie was but I knew I wanted to watch it and Disney spent a lot of money making it. Science Fiction Fantasy with a few cowboys make for a very good movie, the action picks up from the start and everything keeps coming together. John Carter is an interesting character and finding himself in a very tough spot between warring nations, and also it helps that he seemed to have developed superpowers while he is on Mars. Its an entertaining movie and it seems that critics are a bit too harsh on it, if you are looking for a fun movie then this is it.
