Despicable Me 3

Stars: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Pierre Coffin

Official Site    * IMDB

 

Gru gets fired from the AVL (Anti-Villain League) for losing against former child star Balthazar Bratt who steals a giant rose-colored diamond for which you will have to watch as that’s a bit of a spoiler.

Gru finds himself in an identity crisis. He doesn’t want to do Villainy anymore as he promised the girls and therefore loses his minions when they quit; so what is a spy too do? Go on vacation when he is invited to meet his long lost twin who wants to be shown the tricks of the trade. Gru’s help rubs off a bit meanwhile the minions end up in jail.

Child star Bathalzar is a grown bitter man still dressing as his 1980s on-screen persona. Obsessed with his character and rewatching all his old episodes he concocts his plan to rule the world.

I don’t know why but I have a feeling of Deja Vu that Gru already met his brother in the 2nd movie and that we saw Bratt before as well. Not sure and for some reason, I could find my reviews of the previous 2 movies.

I liked the opening that was fun but I LOVED the part with the Low Rider even better. I wasn’t expecting that to happen although I wanted it to!

Gru and his brother Dru look like the Mad Magazine Spy vs Spy characters with their Black vs White wardrobes.

It was ok but I think the first one was better and I can’t really remember the 2nd aside from swearing that the antagonist and brother were already in it.

Oh Gods… that child has got a set of lungs! I think its cute she thinks she’s going to find herself a unicorn. Great job writers & animators for ruining many toddler’s innocence who may have believed in them.

Book Bind ~ Zombie Island


13004927A Shakespeare Undead Novel

by Lori Handeland

Pages 265

started april 9

finished  29

I don’t remember how I acquired this but I’m sure I got it at a thrift store, dollar store or something like that. Considering it said Shakespeare on it, I guess him as a character in a book interested me, oh and I guess the fact he’s a vampire in it helped as well!  Funny he doesn’t look like he would be, not even n the book cover does he have the physical characteristics that tell me one is a vampire. (takes one to know one 😉  )

Anyway aside from the two mentioned, the story interested me for some reason. I guess maybe I thought it sounded like a cross between Romeo and Juliet, and Walking Dead meets Lost?…

 

Back Cover Plot summary

In order to rid the love of his life the Dark Lady Katherine Dymond from the embrace of the encumbrance of her husband, Will concocts a plan to make her sleep the sleep of the dead. Once everyone is convinced she has passed, he plans to awaken her, then spirits her away to London where she will assume a new identity and they can live happily ever after. What could go wrong?

But of course as often is the case with true love, all does not go smoothly as planned. When the two are shipwrecked on an island ruled by a Wizard and a Nymph, and is infested with zombies, Will and Kate must stop an even larger plot aloof, one that leads to the royal palaces of Queen Elizabeth.

a Sorcerer, Vampire, and Zombies  OH MY! Oh,  and an Elf too!

Avengers: Infinity War


 Preview

There seems to be more Where is the Soul Stone than anything, leading up to the release of the movie. Image result for soul stone mcuSome moron who must be color blind thinks its Captain America cause he thought he saw some orange in his eyes in the trailer when Thanos the Grape has a grip on him. That was the gold of Thanos’ armor if there was any ‘orange’ color in cap’s eyes. There may be some truth to that but not in Cap. Remember Heimdall who’s eyes are a topaz/orange color? I’m thinking maybe it’s in Heimdall’s armor. Could we possibly see him in Wakanda?  You could also go by Thanos’ name! The names of or what the stones are in each have a letter of his name. With this theory, I tried to see if I could find another who thought of this and I might be on the right track. It might also be  MARVEL those of which we have seen with the gems.  Between these 2 an Asgardian has it.

While watching Black Panther, I thought I might have seen the soul stone somewhere in the heart herb garden. Which my logic is this; The heart herb brought back T’Challa, it gives the Black Panther his powers and helps him go to the spirit realm to speak to his ancestors.

Otherwise, my out of left field answer that I have no explanation for Bucky. As for where the soul stone is… I’m saying in space (or some other dimension or reality) If I go by where we came upon the stones that’s 3 on earth and so far 2 from space. Which means the soul stone is in space somewhere. And being we were introduced to 2 of the stones in Thor movies, as much as I would love for it to be in possession of Heimdall, logically I don’t think they would do that. We’ve seen the Guardians handle one of the stone, and Loki in Avengers had one in his staff. It’s only fair that the soul stone is in space and has something to do with the Guardians or maybe Dr. Strange or   Is Agent Coulson the Soul Stone? and Here’s a whole bunch of other theories

10 Big Questions That Were Still Left Unanswered After Black Panther  

and get this straight Chadwick Boseman Says ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Is Not ‘Black Panther’ 1.5

We can see from the trailers Steve Rogers has now join his best bud Bucky in Wakanda, the Guardians somehow get Thor on board, Hulk, Tony, Strange and Spider-man are all teamed up

in the New York Sanctum. Ok so I get that group, its the scientist aka Genius clique. I speculate that the Guardians picked up Thor after the battle with Hela being as Asgard as the movies go, is in space. Also from interviews I know the 3rd act is supposed to be in Wakanda (which to me is a spoiler in a way). I have code names for 2 teams but not sure what to call the team in Wakanda spy, assassin, patriot, and a cat…if I use the first letter of each work would be casp or CAPS mmm Cap’s.

During the clip show, some guys mentioned some of the crazier stories in the comics. For instance, there’s some doughboy. (really?!??!) If you want to check that out its captain America #395

Saw a preview for the new Jurassic World and in 3D. OMG it looked so cool in 3d and mean the Dinosaur when it swung its head around I think i actually jumped.

The Deadpool trailer had a great line. Deadpool talking to  Cable “You’re so dark, are you sure you’re not from the DC Universe”?

 and WOW they turned ALL the lights off in the theater for this one!

Ready Player One (2018)


From reading the book alone I thought Disney should have a RP1 world like Avatar and have Harry Potter (which I hear is already getting rid of one of the rides. I think it’s the Dragon ride at Gringotts).

See the source imageReady Player one is based on the 2011 Ernest Cline novel of the same name… I have previously posted the book review. I believe I read it in 2016 even though I was already really sick of the dystopian future stories, but this one I very much enjoyed. I was a child in the 80s and lived through most of this. I did have to look up some of the video games and other pop culture items referenced within, as they either sounded familiar and I couldn’t recall or just had no idea at all.

It’s a great story of many elements, not just a nostalgic anchor but a scavenger/treasure hunt.  Not only that but, shows just because you are in a contest doesn’t mean you can’t work as a team with fellow contestants, but also make friends from the adventure. I didn’t want to put the book down and that is a rare treat. I was so enthralled in the book that it was as if I WAS a character in the book.

The main plot of the 2045 set polluted dystopian future where Waded Watts lives in the Stacks is that the Jobs/Wonka like billionaire Halliday who made the Oasis, sets up a very complex game within his Virtual Reality world. If you find the 3 keys (Copper, Jade and Crystal) you become the owner of the Oasis. Those who hunt for the keys are called ‘Gunters’ who hate the Global Conglomerate  IOI who wants to charge everyone for the use of the Oasis. Every IOI   employee’s Oasis screen name starts with a six and so the Gunters call them ‘Sixers’, which Sorrento is the head of them. Everything you get as a Sixer,  becomes the rightful property of the IOI.   My book review

When I first saw the trailer after it premiered at Comic-Con, I nearly fell off the computer chair. The imagery matched if not exactly, then quite close to what I had pictured.  Total Geekgasm! With references to Freddy Kreuger, the Delorean of Back to the Future, the Tron Light Cycle and I’m trying to remember and figure out if that orc/troll thing is from Warcraft or likely something else. I’ve included 2 trailers below but a new one was released in December for the March 30th release and I nearly had tears in my eyes. If they have it in 3D in the theaters I am so there for that! Now I know not all movies should be made in 3D, and some are not able to watch them for medical reasons (like my aunt) but if you can I’d highly advise it even if you can’t stand the 3D movies ‘fad’  this is the one to definitely see as such. (being there is a virtual reality world involved)

or if you’d prefer, I love that an 8-bit version was made

Kingsman: Golden Circle


2017    R     Action, adventure, comedy  2 hours 21 minutes

Julianne Moore, Taron Edgerton, Hally Berry, Channing Tatum, Mark Strong, Jeff Bridges, Colin Firth  Pedro Pascal  more here

Agents Eggsy (now Galahad)and Merlin team with their American counterparts, the Statesmen after their headquarters gets blown to smithereens.

The opening action scene is cool but sadly they have Matrix-like slow-mo stop and go fx which I hate. first off it not only ruins the momentum of the action sequence, but it also looks ‘cartoon-y’.  They used it too much (I think every action scene had the ‘trick’ in it to some extent.) Use that for one part of an action sequence fine… like a certain move that would otherwise not be noticed and needs to be shown just a little slower so we can appreciate it. This was used in a few points in one fight/action scene.

Oh I like the Statesman building. That;’s cool, and always wished they’d make buildings like that for real. (easier to find where you are going especially if you can’t find the building number.

The guy from  Game of Thrones forget character’s name but he’s a dead one.  I think his real name is Pablo Pascal gets his cowboy on with a LAZso (Lazer Lasso) and after a bit of an entertaining Whip fight ‘I feel like a tornado in a trailer park”

 

And there’s quite a musical cameo with flair …See the source image

Oh Action scene n poppy island and the Scissor sign!

I need to rewatch the first but while still somewhat enjoyable I don’t think it was as awesome as the first.

Though it was still better than Atomic Blonde, even with a cartoony looking effect.
