About to sit down and watch this and I am SOOOO excited for it 🙂
Wow, it has been a really BIG day for movie news, first with the news regarding Sony pulling out of their deal with Marvel for the Spider-Man Franchise and then news of the new Matrix film that has been confirmed for filming next year! Both of these franchises are very close to my heart, particularly The Matrix having been a fan of Keanu Reeves for as long as I can remember. So you see, I do venture outside of the Galaxy far far away sometimes!
It’s actually great news to hear about The Matrix film being confirmed because with the Skywalker Saga ending this year, I am going to have to put all of my fandom fangirling energy into something else. The next season of Cobra Kai also begins shooting next month but now that I have another huge movie franchise to get behind, it’s going to be an interesting thing to see how much hype the new film gets in the next few months.
Star Wars is Poetry is still ticking along and new followers are slowly joining the fold. I decided to use one of my edits, this really nice image of Luke for an update for the blog so here it is:
To coin a soppy phrase from Tony “Ironman” Stark – “Part of the Journey is the end” – 2019 is the year where we celebrate (or grieve) the ending of so many different franchises. The two most prominent are the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Phase One ends with The Avengers End Game and the Star Wars franchise finally wraps up the Skywalker Saga in December this year. Streaming services will also have its share of big blockbuster TV Shows such as Game of Thrones which also wraps up after 8 seasons this year. Continue reading → 2019 – The Year of the End
I don’t know why people have to say negative things about award shows, particularly when their favourite actor or actress doesn’t win. Are the Oscar’s and other award shows rigged just because Sebastian Stan (as an example) wasn’t nominated? Who knows, but that’s no reason to be angry about it.
I actually felt bad for being excited for the Golden Globes because of stuff I read on social media. It’ll be interesting to see what happens. I’ll be watching and reading attentively.
Burning first came on my radar after checking out one of two sites I often frequent for movie-related content. As soon as I saw that Steven Yuen was in it and that he was playing the antagonist, I was sold. I’ve been a fan of Steven Yuen since his Walking Dead days, and he’s gone onto bigger and brighter things since. One could say that leaving The Walking Dead was possibly the best thing he could have done and he is fantastic in this film. Continue reading → Movie Review: Burning – Watched 04/02/2019
It’s probably the first time I’ve been able to watch a really slow-paced thriller and not fall asleep! And that is saying something because if a film doesn’t interest me early on, I get bored.
Burning was amazing! Review to come 😎
I’ve seen a few reviews for this film talking about “satire” and using big words to say that they didn’t like this film. I’m probably in the last 10 per cent of people that really enjoyed this film, and I’m finding it hard to agree with the critics about it.
There are two main reasons for this. The first is that this film is a Dan Gilroy movie and he both wrote and directed this. And I’ve been a huge fan ever since his work on Nightcrawler which was a pretty intense experience for me. The first time I watched it, I was blown away by its brutality and boldness. Dan Gilroy is very good at delivering the content you can lose yourself in. The second reason is Jake Gyllenhaal. I think it’s fair to say that I’m a big fan. He’s an actor that I think is on the verge of doing something massive – and I am still a little bitter he got ignored entirely for his role as Louis Bloom in Nightcrawler, but anyway, back to Velvet Buzzsaw.
