Avatar: The Way of Water is About Training New Creatures

We’ve got another Avatar: The Way of Water trailer and it still looks pretty darn pretty. The story continues to be fleshed out a bit more. We’ve got a battle with humans, and an attempt to hang out with new, water Na’vi. But mostly it seems to be about training to ride water creatures. The first movie was about training to ride air creatures.

I think I know what the third movie is going to be about…

The movie looks fine. The digital effects look top notch, so much so that I’m considering going to see this movie in IMAX or at some other fancy theater. I probably should, right? Get that quality digital screen. Wherever I see it, Avatar the Way of Water should be a hoot.

The movie comes out on Dec. 16.

What If Elements Had Feelings?

Pixar is going to keep making movies, and we’re going to hope they’re good. The next one is called Elemental, and it’s apparently going to be about a hot fire elemental lady and a sexy water elemental dude falling in love. Can fire love water? I guess we’ll find out in Elemental!

I kid, because it’s funny. Isn’t that how the gags work with these types of movies? What if cars had feelings? What if toys had feelings? What if a little robot had feelings? Well now we’ve got anthropomorphized elements! Fire, water, dirt; all the elements. I bet they have really powerful feelings!

Elemental comes out in June.

6 Thoughts on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Review)

Making Black Panther: Wakanda Forever couldn’t have been easy. Ryan Coogler and Chadwick Boseman were well into plotting and scripting this sequel when Boseman passed, after keeping his illness a secret from even his close collaborators. But I’m glad that Coogler, Marvel and the whole cast decided to push through and make this movie the way they did. Wakanda Forever is a big, rich and emotional movie, full of great performances and a really outstanding superhero story.

Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great

I very much enjoyed Wakanda Forever. I didn’t mind the long runtime. I loved the introduction of Namor, even though I’ve never been a fan of the character. I loved the story of the new Black Panther, even though I didn’t think I would. And I think everyone involved truly brought their A games to honor Boseman. It made for an exciting watch. I was already a big fan of the first Black Panther movie, and I think I liked this sequel even more. The same confidence was at play in the filmmaking, and I just think Namor and the Talokans were a wonderful antagonist. Good time all around!

Join me after the jump for my full thoughts and review on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie. Feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments.

I Don’t Remember What’s Happening in John Wick 4

I like the John Wick movies. Who doesn’t? But I really think they’ve lost the forest for the trees. What’s the story anymore? Does anybody remember off the top of their heads? The first movie worked so perfectly, where a retired hitman came back to go on a murderous rampage after idiots killed his dog. It was great! But where are we now? Who was Halle Berry’s character?

Anyway, they’re right back at it with John Wick 4!

I mean, I’ll definitely go see this movie. They’ve all been pretty good. But the lore is really weighing down John Wick’s character, in my opinion. His family sits at the table? Are we about to meet John Wick’s parents and learn that they’re the ones in charge of the whole management level of assassins? It’s like finding out Jack Sparrow’s dad was in charge of all pirate lore.

Ah well, make of it all what you will. John Wick 4 comes out on March 24.

Who’s Up For Trying to Catch Glass Onion in Theaters?

Knives Out was amazing. I saw it in theaters with high hopes based on the trailers, and even those hopes were blown out of the water by how good it was! So you’re gosh darn right I’m quite pleased that Rian Johnson was given a ton of money by Netflix to make more Benoit Blanc mysteries. Glass Onion looks darn good!

Looks like a fun murder mystery, with a great cast and a really neat lead detective! I’m totally in.

So Glass Onion is coming to Netflix on Dec. 23, which is fine. I can watch it with my family over Christmas, perhaps. But it’s also going to get a limited theatrical release for, like, one week starting on Nov. 23. If that movie is playing anywhere near me, you best believe I’m going to see it in theaters! I can’t wait!
