Spider-Man Venom Movie Spinoff: PLEASE Don’t Use The Ultimate Universe Venom

With Spider-Man getting his third try, the studios now have their sights set on one of his greatest adversaries, Venom. With a release date set for October 5, 2018, we don’t know what to expect other than this spinoff will be a solo film leaving us questioning how much involvement we’ll get from Spider-Man. But for now, we can only hope that the studios take this popular nemesis and do him justice. With that said, I only hope that they pull from the right source material and steer clear of the Ultimate version of the character. Let me tell you why.

‘Clerks 3’ And ‘Mallrats 2’ Cancelled, Now What?

Recently indie filmmaker Kevin Smith made headlines announcing a new film on the horizon, ‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.’ This would in fact be a sequel to his earlier film ‘Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back’ which had meant to be the end of the Viewaskew series of films that included ‘Clerks’, ‘Mallrats’, ‘Chasing Amy’, ‘Dogma’, and the aforementioned Jay and Silent Bob original. Minor spoiler but that film ends with God from ‘Dogma’ literally closing the book on the Viewaskew universe. Thinking ahead he left a few pages open for more films in he ever felt compelled. As such we eventually got ‘Clerks 2’ which many viewers felt was a return to form for him.

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ vs ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ Which Is The Better Film?

So the new Wolverine film, “Logan” seems to be doing pretty well and as is surprisingly common with this series the future is not certain for the X-Men. They may have kick-started the genre for many in the mainstream, but they certainly didn’t start the Marvel Studios method of planning out their series. Now Bryan Singer said to have had some ideas and plans for X-Men 3 after completing “X2: X-Men United.” However as he left to do his dream project of “Superman Returns” the writers and new director Brett Ratner went in their own direction. The result, “X-Men: The Last Stand” while not necessarily awful or panned at the time it was a disappointment and huge step down from the last two films. After years of getting through the highs and lows Bryan Singer came triumphantly back to the franchise to direct “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” In my personal opinion the best film of the series.

Logan: It’s Time To Make The X-Men Great Again

It is both a tragedy and a triumph that the ninth and final installment of Hugh Jackman as the beloved Wolverine is the superlative outing of the character.  The dark tone and gory gritty action that “Wolverine” veteran James Mangold gives James Howlett, coupled with standout performances from all of the actors, easily makes this the best film of the X-men franchise, and as some may come to say, one of the best comic book films made to date.  Why is it, then, that only as the wick of the candle burns to the end does it shine brightest?

GTA 5 Ought To Influence Red Dead Redemption 2

Rockstar Games seemingly has the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 bagged already. All they had to do, really, was tease the thing for three days before releasing a trailer comprised of just pre-rendered cinematics, and ever since they did that the gaming media just can’t shut up about the title – not that it’s a bad thing. Rockstar has a mighty fine track record with games, so at this point players can be confident that the game will be a bonafide masterpiece. It’s even in our own list of top games for 2017.

5 Biggest Oscars Upsets (Nominated But Lost)

How about that Oscars night huh? ICYMI they announced La La Land as winner for Best Picture to only then reveal it was a mistake and Moonlight actually won. I’ll bet there are some who can think of cases where they WISHED that happened. You may remember last year I did a list about the Biggest Oscar Snubs well I’m back with another about the biggest upsets. It’s true it is just an honor just to be nominated however when you’re beaten by something that was inferior it can be just crazy. Now there are many classic examples you may notice aren’t on this list like “Forrest Gump” beating “Pulp Fiction” and “Shawshank Redemption” or “Driving Miss Daisy” beating “Do The Right Thing” etc. well they’re not here because honestly I agree with the Academy’s decision. Or examples like Eddie Redmayne beating Michael Keaton which is not here because I still haven’ seen “The Theory of Everything” so it’s not fair for me to compare. I will keep an open mind and give it a fair chance for when I eventually do see it. With all that out of the way let’s begin.

4 Sequels That Messed Up Their Own Legacy

There are sequels that are bad or just don’t measure up to their predecessors, but sometimes they change what we thought of the first film. For a man who wasn’t primarily into movies, my father often had some astute observations about film. Now this conversation we had was years ago when only 5 Rocky films existed, and for my entire life those films were seen as a punchline for jokes about a bad series. Yet somehow, the first film was an Oscar nominated film. I didn’t get it. My father said something to the effect of “yes, but sometimes bad sequels can tarnish the original. It makes them think of just those sequels and forgetting how good the first one was.”
