Riddick’s Future, A Movie Review and What’s Next?

9 Sep

Riddick Movie PosterRiddick may well be a reboot of a franchise that never fully took off back in the early 00’s. Its mass appeal was limited, and not everyone may understand what this anti-hero is all about. He has some moralistic sentimentalities and an origin story similar to Superman’s, but he is no goody-two-shoes. He has no qualms about killing.

Much of this film series bravado comes from the fact that a lot of people are cheering for a character who finds himself more often trapped in a life of unwanted scruitiny and misfortune.

Guardians Leaked Trailer

13 Aug

By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie trailer could get taken down soon. Take a look at it while it’s still available. From what I have seen there is also a X-Men: Days of Future Past leaked trailer but it appears within half a day it has been removed. The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is poor quality but you would expect it since it’s source is coming from a geek cam in the crowd.

 

Characters such as Rocket Racoon, Groot, Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Star Lord (Chris Pratt) can be seen.

And the song that you hear for the trailer is Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede.
