‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Star Cliff Curtis Joins James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ Sequels
The Movie God   |  

Cliff Curtis

There’s a bunch of Avatar sequels on the way. Eventually. We’ve been hearing about a sequel to Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgment Day director James Cameron‘s record-smasher for years, but the second movie has been delayed multiple times.

Creeping up on a decade since the original was released, the sequels are starting to take shape once again. Last month, release dates for the four sequels were set again, with the first now scheduled for release in 2020—11 years after the original was released. And now a new actor has joined the cast. Fear the Walking Dead star Cliff Curtis has signed on for one of the lead roles in the sequels.

Blu-ray Review: Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge Blu-ray review

Hacksaw Ridge
Blu-ray l DVD l 4K Ultra HD
Director: Mel Gibson
Screenwriter: Andrew Knight and Robert Schenkkan
Cast: Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, Vince Vaughn
Distributor: Summit Entertainment
Rated PG | 104 Minutes
Release Date: February 21, 2017

I’m not one for the over-dramatized, based on a true story kind of movie. But for most of them, there is something special and inspirational that makes me want to know more about the subject’s story. Case in point, Hacksaw Ridge.

Now I didn’t know anything about Desmond Doss’ harrowing story of how he refused to take up arms during World War II, but ended up saving multiple lives during the Battle of Okinawa. But to see it on the big screen was something else. The fact that it was also directed by Mel Gibson did add some concern to it, given his outrageous behavior and reputation. Still, the film managed to meet my expectations. Check out my review below.

Cast: Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Emily Watson, Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington, Jake Gyllenhaal
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 121 Minutes
Release Date: September 18, 2015

Based on the tragic events of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, Everest is the story of two expeditions to the summit of Earth’s highest mountain, one led by Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal) and the other by Rob Hall (Jason Clarke).

Directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns, Contraband), Everest is a film about surviving incalculable risks in the most inhospitable conditions on the planet.

As head of the New Zealand-based Adventure Consultants, Rob Hall leads an expedition of men and women to the summit of Everest, which is 29,029 feet above sea level. As the experienced mountaineer explains to his clients, “Human beings simply aren’t built to function at the cruising altitude of a 747. Our bodies will be literally dying. Everest is another beast altogether.”

‘Everest’ Trailer: All-Star Cast’s Epic Journey To Climb The World’s Tallest Mountain

Ernest Hemingway said that “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” The spirit of that quote couldn’t be more true when trekking up a treacherous mountain like Mount Everest. But when you’ve reach the goal to get to the peak of the mountain, there is also a story to tell of the trip back to ground. Baltasar Kormákur‘s Everest will focus on that aspect of the story, which tells of the true-life drama of two team’s having successfully climbed the mountain, only to find out that the journey back down can be even more dangerous. The film will feature an all-star cast, and is considered by many to be one of the most anticipated films of the year.

Check out the trailer below.

‘Sabotage’ Trailer: Arnold Schwarzenegger Has A $10 Million Secret
eelyajekiM   |  

Arnold Schwarzenegger Sabotage (2013)

At this point in time Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s films after his years as governor have been less than stellar. The Last Stand and Escape Plan both performed below expectations. But that hasn’t necessarily discouraged the actor from continuing to do what he does.

Now in the David Ayers‘s Sabatoge, Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA hit team (Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, and Joe Manganiello) and successful raids a cartel’s safehouse. Together they uncover $10 million in cash, but instead of reporting to the authorities, the team hides it away. But before the dust can settle, members of the team start to be assassinated, and it’s up to Schwarzenegger to find out if it’s the cartel’s doing or if it’s someone from his own team.

Hit the jump to see the full trailer.

Movie Review: Wrath of the Titans
Three-D   |  

Wrath of the TitansWrath of the Titans
Directed by Jonathan Liebesman
Starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Rosamund Pike, Edgar Ramirez, Danny Huston, John Bell
Release Date: March 30, 2012

The anything but miraculous dexterity of director Jonathan Liebesman is once again extravagantly displayed to audiences undeserving of such a treat. We are once again pummeled by his explicitly maddening style of direction that is beyond intolerable and which has no sense of coherency. His Battle Los Angeles (one of the worst films of last year) is an absolute frenzy of wrath and an obnoxiously chaotic mess of a movie. Wrath of the Titans, his newest example of immeasurably poor filmmaking, is assembled in an all too similar way, frequently engaging audiences in unbridled foolishness on its way to engrossing an enormous income at the expense of its audiences.

‘Clash Of The Titans 2’ Trailer Unleashes Its Wrath
The Movie God   |  

Wrath of the Titans

The first trailer for the follow-up to 2010’s Clash of the Titans remake, titled Wrath of the Titans, has made its way online.

The sequel is surprising for multiple reasons, most notable of which is the fact that the original did not perform as well as was hoped both critically and financially (making only a small amount more than its budget domestically—though it did do much better overseas—and being generally panned by critics), followed by the fact that almost the entire cast came back to reprise their roles.

But how does Wrath of the Titans (with new director Jonathan Liebesman) look? Could it be one of the rare cases where a sequel does better things than its predecessor?

Game Review: Call Of Duty: Black Ops
The Movie God   |  

Call of Duty: Black Ops
PLATFORMS: PS3/Xbox 360/Wii/PC
PUBLISHER: Activision
RELEASE DATE: November 9, 2010

When reviewing a game like Call of Duty: Black Ops, one would assume the reviewer has probably played other Call of Duty games into the ground, but this is not the case at all.

I entered Black Ops as a complete noob, really. I’ve toyed around with previous installments — mostly playing with family in co-op modes — and even have Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare waiting for me to finally try it out. But technically, I’ve never really taken one of these games head-on.

This, I would have to say, was a good thing. I entered the game knowing what to expect but not exactly how well I would do or progress — especially when it comes to online multiplayer matches, which I’ve always been undeniably bad at and wanted to see if with enough practice and virtual death, this humble gamer could eventually hang with the big boys.
