Avatar: The Way of Water Official Final Trailer

It’s time to return to Pandora as 20th Century Fox (and Disney) released the official final trailer for the highly anticipated sequel blockbuster Avatar: The Way of Water. View trailer below.

Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, “Avatar: The Way of Water” begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure.

Oh wow…. I wasn’t expecting a new trailer for this, especially since the movie itself is literally less than a month away from its debut. Yet, I do welcome the new preview. This new trailer showcases plenty of new footage from the upcoming film and looks quite amazing that this long-awaited sequel will have

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile (2022) Review




Adapting a well-familiar and / or popular narrative from literature has been around for quite some time, with Hollywood finding interest in proven stories to translate into cinematic tales. Within this grouping selective “page to screen” film adaptations, the idea of children or kid’s literature has always been fertile ground for producing kid-friendly movies throughout the years….be it animated or live-action. With so many authors out there (both classic and newer titles), the choices are numerous and bountiful, especially in extrapolating some of the most popular children’s books, including both chapter books and picture books, that are ripe for a silver screen treatment. Such perfect examples of these have derive from some memorable motion picture iterations of beloved stories, including Robert C. O’Brien’s Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH (1982’s The Secret of NIMH), Munro Leaf’s The

Magic Mike’s Last Dance Official Trailer

Get ready for the “last dance” as Warner Bros. Pictures releases the official trailer for the upcoming sequel film Magic Mike’s Last Dance. View trailer below.

“Magic” Mike Lane (Tatum) takes to the stage again after a lengthy hiatus, following a business deal that went bust, leaving him broke and taking bartender gigs in Florida. For what he hopes will be one last hurrah, Mike heads to London with a wealthy socialite (Hayek Pinault) who lures him with an offer he can’t refuse…and an agenda all her own. With everything on the line, once Mike discovers what she truly has in mind, will he—and the roster of hot new dancers he’ll have to whip into shape—be able to pull it off?

Oh wow….I wasn’t expecting this! Heck, I didn’t expect a third Magic Mike movie in general. I think I do vaguely remember hearing about it, but I didn’t

Ticket to Paradise (2022) Review




With Hollywood studios investing money in big-budgeted tentpole features or in smaller scale artistic films (ones that are worthy of Oscar / award nominations), the subgenre of romantic comedies is left somewhere in the middle of those two extreme juggernaut film genres. Naturally, romantic comedies movies, which are both a subgenre to both the romance and comedy movie genres, have been around for quite some time; featuring a motion picture with light-hearted, humorous, and dramatic stories that are usually centered around romantic nuances (i.e., such as “true love” and are able to tackle problematic obstacles (be it family, friends, or some unseen challenge). Additionally, like many films from other genres, romantic comedies can range from a wild array of styles; pulling from other movie genres in order to try to appeal to a “wider” audience. Some classic romantic comedy film endeavors include 1940’s

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) Review



In 2018, Marvel Studios released Black Panther, their 18th superhero film in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film, which starred Chadwick Boseman, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, and Michael B. Jordan, follows the tale of T’Challa, the newly appointed Black Panther and new King of the kingdom of Wakanda, when he is challenged by Killmonger, who plans to abandon the country’s isolationist policies and begin a global revolution. Despite the film relying a bit heavy on its CGI visual effects a bit much, Black Panther was considered to be universally praise by both critics and moviegoers everywhere, including the film’s direction, culture representation, writing, costume designs, production quality, soundtrack, and acting (most important that of Boseman, Wright, and Jordan). Many fans have even considered the film to be the best in the MCU (up to that point),
