Upcoming 2014: Guardians of the Galaxy

Screen shot 2014-02-19 at 4.49.56 PM

The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is here. And it’s 80’stastic.

Guardians of the Galaxy is a highly anticipated Marvel movie, adapted from a cult comic of their own. This adaptation is directed by James Gunn (Super, Slither) and starring various actors from TV shows and well known actors from major blockbuster movies as well. It tells the story about Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star Lord (Chris Pratt, Parks and Rec) and four other individuals, known as the Guardians of the Galaxy: Gamora (Zoe Saldana, Avatar), Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper, The Hangover), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel, Fast and Furious), and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista, WWE champion). As Peter Quill finds an orb, the quintet found themselves hunted down by villains Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace, Pushing Daisies) and Nebula (Karen Gillan, Doctor Who).

The trailer itself was debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Before the trailer’s released, Marvel released an exciting 15-second teaser, to ‘ease the waiting pain’. Well, that IS truly needed for people like me. Anyway, here it is:

The trailer itself is a joyride of cinematic proportions. It opens with an epic scenario of our hero entering the orb’s den. It leads to a rather comical background of the film; also a montage of events in the film. The music itself is a remix of Blue Swede’s Hooked on a Feeling, an 80s song (also, keep in mind that Peter Quill is an 80s kid). I’ve known this song since I watched Reservoir Dogs and it is a great blend to this trailer; quirky and unconventional.

Curious? Watch for yourself.

How’s that? So, clap your hands if you can’t wait 6 months for this movie to come out. Because, I can’t.

ALSO: When you think that this movie’s couldn’t get any better, that over there as Nova Corps Officers are John C. Reilly (Wreck-It Ralph, Step Brothers) and Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace). Makes you want to make a huge time machine, and transport yourself to August 2014 to a cinema near you.

Upcoming 2014: Transcendence

“Is anyone th3re?”

Credits to MOVIECLIPS trailers.

Let me tell you what I think about this trailer in one sentence:

Underneath the star-studded cast of Johnny Depp and Co. lies a truly exceptional story that has a potential of being (probably) the best sci-fi movie ever, if only it was to be put in the right pair of hands.

Go watch the trailer. You won’t regret it.

THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN (ENEMIES UNITE TRAILER)

The-Amazing-Spider-Man-2-Super-Bowl

Before we talk about this trailer (well, actually I am) in detail, go watch the friggin’ trailer. What are you waiting for? I’m gonna spoil all the fun if you keep reading.

Okay now if you’re reading this part either you have watched the trailer or you are just one of those people who likes to ruin parties.

Come on man, just stop reading if you haven’t watch the trailer please it’s for your own good.

Fine, your regrets.

First of all, I really don’t know why the trailer is called enemies unite, or why not they just call it the 4th trailer or something, I really don’t. But heck anyways it doesn’t really matter. This is really exciting.

Some people call this the extended Superbowl trailer which I don’t think it is, because it has something (which I will talk about) that makes this different than the other Amazing Spiderman trailer.

Let’s talk about it from the exact beginning of this trailer.

We start off with Peter Parker’s house with Aunt May blocking Peter from cleaning the laundry because the last time he did it, he made everything blue and red (obvious nod to the original Spiderman 2 here).

Well, I guess it’s pretty funny, but not that original. Plus, it’s another nod about how patriotic Spiderman is because of the red, blue, and white. Well it’s not as obvious as how each ending of the original Spiderman trilogy has Spidey on an American flag pole.

“All right, laundry sheriff.”

Then we got something about, “you know what is it I love about being Spiderman? Everything.” *Lol* it’s a counteract on the original trilogy, where he hates being Spiderman in Spiderman 2. And there is Peter Parker there sitting on top of a building (which, by the way, is real. Andrew Garfield is sitting on top there, no CGI blue screen or anything,  the brit’s got balls)

And then here on out, the small bit of Electro’s origins starts. Max Dillon is a nobody,  and he almost got hit by a flying taxi and saved by Spidey. Spiderman motivates him by saying,

“You’re my eyes and ears out here.”

This is the part where Electr… uh, I mean, Max Dillon overthinks about Spiderman, and how jealous he is because everybody likes Spiderman whereas he has a sad life. In this part, he was talking to Gwen Stacy on an elevator (which I’m guessing is in Oscorp) while watching him in an elevator TV.

Parker then states about how he likes to think that Spiderman gives people hope.

Well, nobody cares about what you LIKE to think, dipshit.

Onto Max posting some news paper posters on his room. Isn’t that familiar? Yes? Ironman 2? Electricity whiplashing guy?

Then when Max was trying to fix a broken cable, he fell off and went into this friggin’ pit of eels, I know right, what the hell. A PIT OF EELS. What kind of corporation needs  A PIT OF EELS for electricity, geez.

Well that was cheesy, but I guess that’s what they’re going for.

Part of the city shuts down (or that’s how the trailer put it together to look like), and Max uses a hoodie to cover himself, and he went to the Time Square to absorb some electricity, I guess. Really weird music here, by the way, but I like it.

“YO SPARKLES.”

Parker puts on the Spidey costume and confronts this guy, and this is the part which I was talking about which makes this different than the other trailers.

Parker forgot his name, but remembers how he is ‘his eyes and ears’.

Max got pissed about how Spidey forgot his name, and became a murderous psychopath.

Then Max shoots some electric bolts to Spidey.

Suddenly it cuts to Parker meeting Harry Osborne played by Dane Dehaan. Some sinister six nods here and there but we’ve seen that before from the previous trailers.

Well, the rest of the trailer is just some dubstep with trailer montage.

Also there is this part where Parker is crying with the Spidey outfit, maybe Gwen is, umm…

You know, umm…

D… de…

Devastated because of her dad’s death, or something.

Well, it was a fun trailer for me. Too much shown by the way.

So I am in the mood of new movies, and I found this. The first look of the poster did not impress me much (probably did not impress me at all) since these days this kind of movie poster is just mainstream (I mean, come on, you’ve got to know movies with sci-fi, war, and Tom Cruise in their posters. Well, maybe one or two. Okay fine, with Tom Cruise omitted, then). So really, at first I was let down by the first look, yet the tagline was too catchy for me to give it up. So I give the trailer a shot, and personally I think you should too.

It was worth my time.

So yes, my mind has changed, and short to say I am all jittery waiting for this movie. It better  be good, because if it ain’t, well, let’s just say that when a disappointing result meets a high expectation, crap happens.

In a glance, this movie reminded me of Source Code, MOHA (Medal of Honor Airborne, because of that first scene where the soldiers dropped from the plane), and something that comes from Halo (even though I did not play Halo, still, the soldiers looked familiar to me). With the existence of Tom Cruise in this movie, it only reminded me of one recent movie: Oblivion. Simply, I gave Oblivion a 3.5/5 for it’s shallow plot, though I gave an extra half credit out of pity and for their good screenplay.

So what do you think? Will it be better than Oblivion or not? Will it be a great movie to watch with your geeky girlfriend (or, if you’re a girl, boyfriend)? Will Emily Blunt give a notable effect on the movie (I am kind of curious about that)? Comments below folks,  tell me what you think. Until then!
