Grab your sunscreen and beach blanket; Brian, John, and Elaine give you an overview of some of the potential stinkers and gems from the tentpoles of the summer blockbuster season.
No movie news this week.
SUMMER MOVIE PREVIEW- 2016
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Release Date: June 3rd
Playing major fan service with the inclusion of classic Turtles
characters: Bebop, Rocksteady, and Krang from Dimension X.
That's honestly the only half decent parts
It's a sequel to a movie nobody wanted
More Michael Bay CGI fuckery with weird ass looking Turtles.
More pandering to the nostalgia of Turtles past.
Casey Jones is now a pretty boy played by Stephen Amell (still awesome as Green Arrow) rather than a crazy street person played by Elias Koteas.
Independence Day: Resurgence
Release Date: June 24th
Finally delivering on a sequel to an amazing film after 20
Original cast is mostly back except for good point #3
No Will Smith--"He's dead Jim".
Prepare for CGI overload as the "present" in the ID4 universe is
a weird hybrid between our world and Blade Runner.
How is Brent Spiner alive in the movie when his character (Dr. Okum) was killed off in the first movie.
Won't a computer virus just kill off the aliens again or have they finally upgraded their AVG Anti- Virus Software from the demo version.
Liam Hemsworth.....yup that's a meh point right there.
Release Date: July 15th
There are none.
This is the biggest example of the reboot that no one wanted.
Where do you start in trying to explain how horrible this
shit bomb truly will be.
Biggest Sin- putting fantastic comedic actors like Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy in a bastardized version of one of the best comedies ever made.
Sin 2- Director, Paul Feig feeding the misguided flames of uber feminists continual bullying of anyone who happens to think that this movie sucks.
Having an affection for the original 1984 film and seeing, based on trailers, how completely fucked up the film franchise you love has become DOES NOT make you a bigot or a misogynist and to push that narrative weakens the argument against real bigotry and misogyny by trivializing it
Sin 3- The ghost effects look like Scooby Doo rip offs.
The original Ghostbusters had ghosts that were made using practical effects and stop motion that looked truly terrifying. These new ghosts look like something out of a Joel Schumacher Batman movie.
Sin 4- Moving forward with this movie shortly after Harold Ramis passes away after he tried for 20 years to get a sequel made.
Release Date: August 5th
Margot Robbie definitely channels the madness of Harley
Trailer seems to mix the dark depressing nature of Batman v Superman with comedic elements.
Will this movie be too dark?
Will Jared Leto's joker jump the proverbial shark and come across as ridiculous?
Will Smith is in this unfortunately.
Playing the Joker after Heath Ledger could be considered career suicide. Is it impossible to follow up that performance?
Release Date: August 11th
