It’s finally happening! We are finally getting a fourth installment to Jurassic Park! Taking place and coming out twenty years after the first one—twenty years, I feel old—the park has finally been opened, because as we learned in the previous three movies, putting a bunch of tourists on an island filled with dinosaurs is a great idea. But who cares about that leap in logic? Jurassic World looks awesome.
Jurassic Park is responsible for my childhood obsession with dinosaurs that continues to this day. Out of every franchise I’ve ever been part of, this is the one that makes me happiest and launched any interest I have in science. Because it’s got dinosaurs. And I can only hope that Jurassic World lives up to the hype.
Although we’ve been super excited about this show for a while, much to my surprise, we’ve never actually talked about it here on the blog. So I hope you’re ready to talk, sing, and dance about Galavant, because it looks like it’s going to be amazing.
So we’ve been pretty excited about ABC’s new miniseries, Agent Carter, for a while. Even though there wasn’t much information on it, we kept seeing delightful tweets about what Hayley Atwell was getting up to on set. Soon it could reasonably be inferred that basically, Peggy Carter was going to have a lot of scenes where she kicked someone’s ass. And now, we’ve finally gotten our first look at the trailer for Agent Carter.
It’s been nearly three weeks since the Age of Ultron trailer was leaked to the public. I was on vacation at the time, so, while I did get to watch first the grainy leak footage (and then the HD damage-control release from Marvel) in my condo while jumping up and down with excitement, I haven’t had a chance to write about it yet. I’m here to remedy that right now.
It’s taking everything I have to keep myself from writing about Dragon Age: Inquisition (which comes out on the 18th, by the way) for every article this month. But if something catches my eye enough to drag me from my DA trance, during release month no less, you can bet that it’s something amazing. What developer Volition has put on the table is nothing short of that. You might even call this DLC… sinfully good.
So now that it’s Halloween, even though horror is not really my thing, I’ve stumbled upon the trailer for Angel of Death, which is the sequel to The Woman in Black. I might not be the biggest horror fan out there, but this movie looks so bad, it’ll probably be good. Lord knows that I laughed my ass off during the first movie.
I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked that The Woman in Black is actually getting a sequel, since a lot of horror movies get one, but at the same time, I wasn’t really expecting it. The original movie didn’t do that well—only a 66% on Rotten Tomatoes. And one of the few things I did like about it—a lack of gore—is actually one of its more heavy criticisms. As such, I wouldn’t be surprised if Angel of Death ended up being bloodier altogether.
The trailers for Big Hero 6 have been floating around for a while, and I kept seeing it on friends’ Facebook feeds and my Tumblr dashboard. So I finally decided to watch it and see what all the hype was about. Imagine my surprise when I found out about the Asian protagonist—and a lot of racism underneath.
