Yeah, I’m thinking I’m Back

Hello Movie Fans!
I’m back. After almost four year’s I’ve decided to come back to the film blog I enjoyed working on so much. I don’t remember why I stopped writing film reviews way back then (the last thing I wrote about was Ben Affleck signing on to be Batman and before that it was some time in May, 2013). What is important that I’m back now!

This is probably a silly time for me to start writing again as I’m heading overseas to an international Rover Scout Moot – for more information, you can check out one thing I have been up to in the last few years here: https://www.youtube.com/user/QueenslandRovers.

On the plus side though, it is a great time for movies. As well as reviewing movies that are coming out, I’ll be going back over the movies that have come out over the last few years and try to fill in the gap that this blog has.

I’m looking forward to bringing you all the reviews, news and editorials I can in the near future.

May The 4th Be With You!

May the 4th Be With You Everyone! Happy Star Wars Day!

It’s not the “Official Star Wars Day” May 25th (When ‘Star Wars’ was released) but it has become a tradition for it to be Star Wars Day because of the way the date is said.

Also, to all you Americans out there… I HOPE YOU ENJOY THE AVENGERS!!! IT WILL ROCK YOU LIKE YOU’D NEVER BELIEVE!!!

NFB Update

Howdy all, been a while…

Been off for a while, with assignments and all but back for the Summer from now on! And why not? Summer is the time of movies! To catch up on everything here is a update of things that have been missed on NFB over the past few weeks…

  • The ultimate Marvel team-up is building up speed as the trailer for 2012’s The Avengers hits Cinemas and the Internet.
  • Also on the topic of the mighty mighty director, Joss Whedon. It has been announced that he had just completed a mystery film project entitled Much Ado About Nothing… yes thats right, the incredible writer of our time, joined forces with the incredible writer of yester-year! Bellweather Pictures released a Press Release regarding the film…
    • Bellwether Pictures proudly announces the completion of principal photography on MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, a modern version of Shakespeare’s classic comedy adapted and directed by Joss Whedon (Marvel’s upcoming THE AVENGERS, “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”). Filmed in just 12 days entirely on location in exotic Santa Monica, the film features a stellar cast of beloved (or soon to be beloved) actors ñ some of them veterans of Shakespearean theater, some completely new to the form. But all dedicated to the idea that this story bears retelling, that this dialogue is as fresh and intoxicating as any being written, and that the joy of working on a passion project surrounded by dear friends, admired colleagues and an atmosphere of unabashed rapture far outweighs their hilariously miniature paychecks.MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is the first feature from Bellwether, a micro-studio created by Joss Whedon and Kai Cole for the production of small, independent narratives for all media, embracing a DIY ethos and newer technologies for, in this particular case, a somewhat older story.

      Shot in glorious black and white by Jay Hunter (PAPER HEART, “Dollhouse”), the film stars Amy Acker (CABIN IN THE WOODS, “Alias”) and Alexis Denisof (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Angel”) as Beatrice and Benedick, the worldís least likely lovers headed for their inevitable tumble into love. As Joss Whedon puts it: “The text is to me a deconstruction of the idea of love, which is ironic, since the entire production is a love letter ñ to the text, to the cast, even to the house itís shot in.” The supporting cast includes Nathan Fillion (“Castle,” WAITRESS) as Dogberry, Clark Gregg (AVENGERS, IRON MAN) as Leonato, Fran Kranz (CABIN IN THE WOODS, “Dollhouse”) as Claudio and Reed Diamond (“Franklin & Bash,” MONEYBALL) as Don Pedro.

      The film was produced by Whedon, line-produced by Nathan Kelly and M. Elizabeth Hughes, and co-produced by Kai Cole and Danny Kaminsky. The super-impressive cast is listed below. Full tech credits (for the extraordinary crew) will be up shortly. The film should be completed by early spring and headed for the festival circuit, because it is fancy.

  • Harry Potter DVD’s will cease to exist on shelves by the end of the year… Warner Bros. are taking a page out of Disney’s book and stopping prints of Harry Potter DVD’s on December 29th. This will no doubt mean a re-release in the future sometime, similar to the re-birth of the Lion King in the last few weeks. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 goes on sale November 11… So get in quick!
  • Bryan Singer could be on par with my greatest movie-making villain, Joel Schumacher, when he directs his version of Battlestar Galactica. The director previously killed a series (that, given was not amazing beforehand) in Superman. In turn he gave up the direction of X-Men: The Last Stand (Another Franchise Killer) to work on Superman Returns.
  • The Adventures of Tintin premiered in Belgium on the 22nd of October, it’s set to screen in the UK on the 26th of October, India in November, the US, December 21st, and Australia… The 26th of December… Once again everyone… Australia is last to see a movie… (Vengeance maybe for Harry Potter DHP2?).
  • Sony Pictures have secured the rights for an Assassin’s Creed movie adaptation… Assassin’s Creed joins, the development at Sony, who are also working on adaptations for InFAMOUS and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
  • Brad Bird plans Incredibles sequel… But wants it to be in the same vein as Toy Story 2, not a complete sell out… I’m proud of you Brad.
