Spider-Man: Homecoming new trailer

Spidey is up against it and this new trailer fleshes out the previous trailer, showing why Peter fights in a home-made suit, a bit more on why the Vulture is doing what he's doing and shows some cool new stuff about his suit and even debuts spider-bots, along with a whole butt-load of action and quips.

And also more Tony Stark. I wonder (and hope) there'll at least be a few more Avengers cameos (we see Cap in the trailer to fleetingly)

This movie is gonna be wild, I wish I could pre-book my Imax ticket now already!!

Planetary Space

I personally feel that back when I was at school, we were taught a lot of unnecessary things, like where was the how-to-do-SARS Module 1, and Understanding-Car-Payments-Watch-For-Balloons 101, and so forth in school?

Not only that, I feel many of the things we learnt were either outdated or no longer valid, and I don't think that irrelevance or incorrectness has changed for school in this day and age, I'm about 33.3% sure of that! Take the Solar System for instance, we got fed pretty pictures and stale information about space and the moon but do we really even understand the basics?

I had a vague idea that the planets were pretty far away and spaced well apart from each other, but how cool is this website that really does an epic job of giving you an idea of how far apart everything is, and how far from us (on Planet Earth) things are; spoiler, very VERY far!

You can see the excellent site here, but do it in your lunchtime or after work because you'll be scrolling reading the fun facts in-between for a while!

DragonBall and who inspired the villians

Life inspires art, and art inspires life. Anyone that is artsy in anyway, knows this is true, and many of our favourite movie and series characters have been inspired by real life.

I grew up on Dragon Ball in high school, and was enthralled by it, little did I know that this axiom was true for ol' DB as well. This video really opened my eyes to some really awesome things. Now I'm really clued up on my favourite comic and super hero back stories and easter eggs, but back when you were a kid, you don't always know these things, just have a look at this video that really goes into some cool details about how Dragon Ball was made and who inspired some of the villains and backdrops.

As one of many who have been absolutely glued to the MCU since Iron Man did the impossible and build a franchise out of literal scrap metal, it is so amazing to see that the culmination of it all has begun. It's fascinating to think that all these characters with story arcs developed over so long will now all be in one big story together.

I am so amped to see how bad-ass Thanos is going to be and you can bet he will be because it's gonna take two whole movies to actually take him down, that's if they do eventually take him down, the Mad Titan is one of Marvel's most epic villains so I hope he reigns terror and Death down on the Avengers and that there are real risks and high stakes and that some of the older Marvel characters actually get killed off. With several contracts running out, you can bet (and hope) that's the case!

Enough from me, hear what the stars have to say!

Merry Carpool Christmas

James Corden's Carpool Karaoke has very quickly become one of Youtube's favourite things for people to watch and he really hit the high note with his Christmas Edition!

The only thing more synonymous with Christmas than Santa Clause is Mariah Carey's Christmas album and especially her top chrismas tune All I Want For Christmas is You, and she and a few other guests join James in one of the most epic carpools ever.

War for the Planet of the Apes (TRAILER)

Forget Trey Songz, Ceaser looks like Mr Steal Yo Girl in almost every picture/frame grab I see of him. The Planet of the Apes re-reboot is lowkey one of the best reboots out there, and they have not only made one successful reboot, but a whole series of them. Kudos to everyone involved.

Andy Serkis has made a career of being an awesome performance-capture actor and has brought life to so many fantastic characters with magical performances. He really doesn't clown around does Mr Serkis. This time looks no different and I really can't wait to see where him and his ape-army eventually end up after Woody Harrelson's antagonist gets hold of him, as it seems that death-to-Ceaser is the main thing on his mind.

All movies seem to be Imax-3D-ing it out, but I think this one might be a miss for that format, although, I'm always happy to be proved wrong though. 2017 so far is shaping up to be a blockbuster year with so many epic movies set to be released!

The Fate of the Furious (TRAILER)

Mind-control, turning on your team for whatever reason, this seems to be ALL the rage in movies these days. That and blue sky-beams.

It seems the new transformers movie is going to have it, and it seems the new Fast and Furious movie is going to have it as well. Showing they've now truly run out of ways to combine 'Fast' and 'Furious' the film now is titled the Fate of the Furious, not to be confused with the Japanese title for it: Wild Speed: Ice Break.

Both of these movies are deeeeep in their franchises already so I imagine that's the only place left to go to? The main protagonist turning on his team, only to find out he was mind-controlled or pushed into the situation and he had no choice but THEN, helping save the day, anyway.

BORING? Of course. But anyone who watches a Transformers or Fast/Furious film expecting a good, realistic story line is dumber than any plot of those films can ever spew out!

This film will be a skop, skiet and donner for the ages as the Fast/Furious budget just keeps on getting bigger as each film makes more money and it even features our very own (we can still claim her right? RIGHT?) Charlize Theron as the villain. It's gonna be lit.
