Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer

Speaking of Tom Hardy(check the Peaky Blinders post), Mad Max: Fury Road is looking absolutely insane. Hopefully it'll be the good kind of insane, if there is such a thing. The visuals in the trailer are stunning.

What I really like is that this seems like a return to the gritty action films of yesteryear. I don't mean remakes or reboots, I'm referring to sweaty, gritty, non polished, non shiny films. When you watch films like Temple of Doom or Predator, you can see the grime and the sweat in each frame.

Films in the last decade or so have become super polished, somewhat overly polished. There are some stand outs that didn't mind getting sweaty, gritty, and grimy in the last decade(Fight Club, Se7en, City of God, Fury to name a few), Fury Road looks like it's going to follow in the same vein. Hopefully it can deliver in much the same way as those other films did(no pressure).

Masterminds Trailer

Mastermind stars Zach Galifinakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and directed by Jared Hess (the guy who wrote and directed Napolean Dynomite, Nacho Libre, and Gentlemen Broncos)... Not much more needs to be said, just no pressure guys.  Check out the trailer above. 

Mission Impossible: Rouge Nation

Okay, okay... I'll be the first to say that I'm definitely not a fan of Tom Cruise. I feel like he's just "Tom Cruise" in different situations, but hey it works for him right? Plus, I can't say much considering Arnold was my favorite actor while I was a kid. So I'll just shut up about all that, but I will say that Tom makes some pretty solid movie choices(Minority Report, A Few Good Men, Interview With A Vampire, Vanilla Sky). Edge of Tomorrow was a surprisingly entertaining scifi film, I recommend it. The trailer to Rogue Nation looks good, especially the intense looking scene at the very end. Side note: Christopher McQuarrie, the director of this film, was a writer on The Usual Suspects and Edge of Tomorrow. 

Maggie Official Trailer

Growing up, Arnold Schwarzenegger was my favorite action star. I can't tell you how many times I watched the movie Predator(because I lost count a LONG time ago). It's great to see him in a movie that actually has potential of being good. He's never really been an amazing actor or anything, but his movies used to at the very least be somewhat entertaining(for the era). Maggie stars Abigail Breslin as Arnold's zombie virus infected daughter, a bit of a different take on the much chewed up genre(bazinga!). Check out the trailer.

Ex Machina

Oscar Isaac is really starting to sizzle in the film industry. He had an absolute knockout performance in A Most Violent Year and people might remember him from the lead in the Coen Bros' Inside Llewyn Davis or his role in Drive. The Latino actor (Oscar Isaac Hernandez) is set to star in the much anticipated sequels Star Wars Episode VII and XMEN: Apocalypse. In Ex Machina Isaac plays the CEO of the world's largest internet company, he owns his own island (as all reclusive mega rich CEO's do), and well he's kind of built the first fully artificial intelligence. Interesting looking film. 

EX Machina is directed by Alex Garland (writer of Sunshine, Dredd, and 28 Days Later), stars Alicia VikanderOscar Isaac, and Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter) and opens April 10th.

From Dusk Til Dawn Future Season Idea

The Culebra vampire take on Mayan/Aztec serpent worshipping, disguised as a cartel is pretty genius. Thanks for making that into a show Señor Rodriguez and El Rey Network.

I had an idea for something that, in my opinion, would be an interesting concept to introduce into this already awesome show. The introduction of  Jaguar Warriors and Zapatistas, who happen to be one and the same.
