Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed

Release Date: February 9, 2018

So it is all over — the Fifty Shades trilogy that tried to be more than just kinky unspoken sex and about two seemingly wildly incompatible characters getting together and sustaining a relationship. But the surprising thing about it is that despite how terrible the first feature, Fifty Shades Of Grey, was, the following installments were actually pretty tolerable to the point of enjoyment. Yes, the entire trilogy as a whole is pretty bad, and the lack of chemistry between leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan is clear, but by the time we get from Fifty Shades Darker to Fifty Shades Freed, we see that the franchise has embraced its absurdity.

The result is that we can enjoy the film for what it is. Regardless of how one may feel about the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed is just one of those films that is so bad it’s actually pretty good. And owning up to the fact that it can be mildly enjoyable is hard to admit. My full review below.

Fifty Shades Freed

I’m not entirely sure if the Fifty Shades franchise still has that tight grip it once had when it was at its pop culture peak, but at least its film franchise intends to see the trilogy all the way to the end. Despite being knocked for its poor writing and lack of chemistry between the two leads, the series’ success – if you can call it that – has led up to the final installment of the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed.

And now with just a couple of months left until the film’s traditional Valentine’s Day release, Universal is releasing yet another trailer to remind you that this sex-filled soap opera drama is coming. Check out the latest trailer below.

Goon: Last of the Enforcers

One more treat for you this Thanksgiving. And it is something to truly be thankful for if you’re a hockey fan. I very much look forward to watching my Bruins later today!

2011’s Goon, starring Seann William Scott as someone who has a particular talent for fighting and ends up on a hockey team as their enforcer, was easily the best hockey comedy since 1977’s Slap Shot. A sequel to the movie is on the way, titled Goon: Last of the Enforcers, and the first trailer for the movie has been released online. William Scott returns to reprise his role in the sequel, and Jay Baruchel, who wrote, produced, and starred in the first, returns to write, star, and even direct this time around.

Be sure to continue below to check out the first trailer for Goon: Last of the Enforcers, along with a recently released poster.

DVD Review: ‘Battlestar Galactica: The Plan’

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan DVDBattlestar Galactica: The Plan
Director: Edward James Olmos
Starring: Dean Stockwell, Rick Worthy, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Edward James Olmos, Michael Trucco, Kate Vernon, Callum Keith Rennie, Aaron Douglas, Michael Hogan, Rekha Sharma, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis
Universal Studios
Release Date: October 27, 2009

I don’t want to be human! I want to see gamma rays. I want to hear x-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I could know much more.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan is the third prequel movie that has been made within the realms of the brilliant Ronald D. Moore and David Eick re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica. The others were Razor and Caprica (which is more of a spinoff and setup for its own new series set to begin in 2010), and they offer us a deeper look into the many stories that we never saw as we journeyed through the wonderful five-season run. While Razor concentrated on another Battlestar ship and added many details to one of the stories we briefly saw in the series, The Plan is a unique and even odd kind of animal that takes us to many different points from the show.

To be completely honest, there’s not really a firm story here, but more of a completely alternative perspective to the intense and familiar events of the series. Do not think that that means that there is no story at all, though — there certainly is, and the more you think about the new things that you see within the film, the more you related them to the overall story, and this is where this movie really works well. The Plan actually plays out almost like the deleted scenes in your DVD special features section, which is kind of strange, but again, unique in its own little way.
