Willy’s Wonderland is Going for Tilt

With Hollywood still in hibernation because of the pandemic, the rest of the world is making movies however they can. Which brings us to Willy’s Wonderland, a Nicholas Cage movie wherein somebody decided to beat Five Nights at Freddie’s to the punch.

Looks dumb! But it also looks watchable. And perhaps I’m just saying that because movies are weird right now. As some of you might remember, I host a movie review podcast through my work, so I’m always on the lookout for new movies to watch in this increasingly barren landscape. And this looks…like an option!

Willy’s Wonderland comes out on Feb. 13.

I Stand By Power Rangers Being a Good Movie

The Power Rangers reboot movie from 2017 was good! I really liked it! I loved the character development and exploration, and…the movie in general. I suppose the suits weren’t very toy-etic. But I still enjoyed the movie.

Doesn’t meant I won’t share fun mocking videos, like the Pitch Meeting guy!

This dude makes consistently fun videos for Screen Rant. I definitely recommend adding him to your YouTube rotation.

His Pitch Meeting for Wonder Woman 1984 hits all the nails on all the heads.

And that’s a good way to spend a Tuesday!

There Are Still Honest Trailers!

Welp, things are pretty crazy in America these days. But this isn’t a political blog, so let’s waste a Friday watching the Honest Trailer for Shawshank Redemption! Didn’t that movie come out decades ago? Yep! But there are no new movies coming out, and Screen Junkies needs something to parody!

This was a solid effort. Shawshank Redemption is a masterpiece, and might as well get this classic internet treatment. And now I’m gonna just go relax.

6 Thoughts on Wonder Woman 1984

Welp, Wonder Woman 1984 has arrived and it has landed with a big, dull thud. Reviewers and superhero movie fans across this great internet are ripping the sequel to shreds, and I don’t necessarily think they’re wrong. I watched Wonder Woman 1984 on HBO Max and…it was fine. I didn’t hate it, I didn’t think it was terrible, but I can’t say I particularly cared much for it.

Movie Rating: 5/10 – Alright

I enjoyed the first Wonder Woman movie well enough. And I’ve liked most of DC’s movie output since then, especially Aquaman and Shazam. But Wonder Woman 1984 is a real callback to the age of cheesy or bad superhero movies. I’ve seen a lot of people compare it to the Christopher Reeves Superman movies, or the original Wonder Woman TV show, but I don’t know enough about either to make that comparison. For me, this is more along the lines of Spider-Man 3, too full of stuff that just comes along and doesn’t work well together.

Join me after the jump for my thoughts and full review of Wonder Woman 1984. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie!

My 6 Favorite Things of 2020

What is there possibly left to say about 2020? This was a dumpster fire of a year for pretty much everybody, and the last person who should be commenting on it is me. I’m safe to say that I’m healthy and fine. I made it through this horrible year pretty well. So let’s wrap it up with my favorite movies, TV shows and comics from the year!

It’s an enamel pin!

It’s the least we can do. I’ve done this for the past several years, and we might as well do it now. Because as someone who spent most of the year locked down at home, working from home, I definitely blasted through a lot of media. So much so, that I split television shows into two categories this year, just so I could talk about different shows in different contexts. This was also a year without any Marvel movies, which are usually my favorite in any given year, let alone major movie releases to begin with!

This was a crazy year, but there was still good stuff out there in the world! Granted, I didn’t see, read or play all of it…but I experienced enough! So join me after the jump for my favorite media from 2020!
