Watch The Most Thorough In-Depth Analysis & ‘Easter Egg Hunt’ Ever Done On “The Matrix” (Video)

WOW! Now I need to get my hands on ALL the extended Matrix universe literature… and watch that ‘Ghost In The Shell’ anime.

The Matrix Full Movie Rewatch & Analysis! What hidden details did you miss from The Matrix when it premiered 20 years ago, and how did it influence all action & sci-fi cinema from Inception to John Wick? By popular demand, Erik Voss rewatches The Matrix (1999) for a scene-by-scene, in-depth breakdown, exploring the deeper philosophy of the Wachowskis’ cyberpunk concepts and secret subliminal messages that are only now being discovered. How does The Matrix opening scene discreetly foreshadow the major reveals later in the film — Cypher’s betrayal, Agent Smith’s uniqueness, and the movie’s groundbreaking action with wire-stunts, martial arts, firearm choreography, and “bullet time?” In what ways does The Matrix parallel its primary inspiration, Ghost in the Shell (1995)? And does The Matrix deserve its revered status, or was it merely overthought gun porn for anime-lovers who wear sunglasses inside Hot Topic? (What a dumb question!)
– New Rockstars

Full disclosure: I was really looking to see if Erik would at least mention the sista (Sophia Stewart) that said she came up with the whole idea for The Matrix. Nope. Wondered what ever came of all the legal biz? Oh well, this is still a great watch!

Sarah Connor Hunting Terminators? An ‘Aging Arnold’ Terminator? “Terminator 6” Teases A ‘Dark Fate’ (Trailer)

Don’t know how they will pull this off. Not even sure that that will matter. My final evaluation was ‘done’ when I saw James Cameron at the helm again… AND the director of “Deadpool” on board! Yeah, it’s about to be some ridiculous popcorn munching in theaters. Plus, the witticisms will go way past “hasta la vista, baby.” Bet both pockets and your neighbor’s on that.

Sarah Connor came through RAW with the big gun in this, didn’t she? Don’t know if they even need ‘Old Man’ Terminator (WTF is that gonna be about though?), but he’s in there.

Shout out to The Ghost Rider from Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Gabriel Luna. Word!

Peter Parker Needs A Vacation, But The World Needs Spiderman (Trailer)

Or should that read that the WORLDS need Spiderman? Hmmm. Answer the phone, Peter.

Yep. The new “Spiderman: Far From Home” MCU movie is gonna be dope! Gotta watch these things in order, especially with the ‘growing up’ Spidey had to do to make it through “Avengers: Infinity Wars” and “Avengers: End Game” (because SPACE, TIME, and INTERDIMENSIONAL travel… talk about ‘far from home’ right?).

Oh, and don’t watch this if you haven’t seen “End Game” yet #SpoilerAlert

‘Blade’ Paved The Way For All The MCU Blockbusters That Would Follow (Video)

Not everyone, but many folks ignore or outright diss the ‘Blade’ contribution to what Marvel has offered the movie world.

(Looking at you, too, ‘Deadpool’‘Blade: Trinity’ was my fave of the series, but you take shots at it. Hannibal King foreverrr!)

Check out this discussion clip giving the props that Marvel’s first Black hero [before all the #WakandaForever stuff] movie deserves.

And yes, ‘Black Panther’ is a far better movie than anything in the ‘Blade’ franchise. Not the point though. Just saying it before the haters do.

Time Travel Flick “See You Yesterday” Comes To Netflix (Trailer)

So this is how Spike Lee does sci-fi. Compelling concept: Time travel flicks often involve the main character(s) going back in time to right a wrong… but a police killing… that’s gonna hit home for us. Yep, Netflix’s latest Spike Lee joint might be its latest hit!

High school best friends and science prodigies C.J. and Sebastian spend every spare minute working on their latest homemade invention: backpacks that enable time travel. But when C.J.’s older brother Calvin dies after an encounter with police officers, the young duo decide to put their unfinished tech to use in a desperate bid to save Calvin. From director Stefon Bristol and producer Spike Lee comes “See You Yesterday,” a sci-fi adventure grounded in familial love, cultural divides, and the universal urge to change the wrongs of the past.

Will Smith Plays A Dual Role In “Gemini Man,” Coming To Theaters This Fall (Trailer)

So kind of like that movie “Looper”Will Smith vs. younger Will Smith in this sci-fi action drama.

Watch the new trailer from visionary director Ang Lee, starring Will Smith. “Gemini Man” is in theatres October 11th, 2019.
– Paramount Pictures

Ang Lee? “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” Ang Lee? Well, the production quality should be top-notch. Just hoping the storytelling doesn’t get too ‘lofty’ (which was the knock on his version of “Hulk”). Looks like some good watching given the trailer.

Latest Look: ‘Fast & Furious’ Presents “Hobbs & Shaw” (Trailer)

The cars, the speed, the guns, the gritty witty banter… sure. Throw all that in there. But The Rock going back home, to round up the homies, to lead a Haka and an epic old school beat-the-hell-outta-everybody gang-on-gang fight???? &%$! YEAH!!!

Man, that “Hobbs & Shaw” movie is gonna take the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise in a whole other outrageous, hilarious, who-in-the-hell-left-the-gate-open direction. Lots of buttered popcorn and sodas will be sold when this hits screens!

Idris’ character looks like he is giving them hell. Haaaa!

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger Season 2 Premieres Thursday, April 4 On Freeform (Series Trailer)

I never like it when my shows take long hiatuses, esp. in the modern TV era when most networks’ shows break their seasons in half (like a series premiere, then a midseason finale, then a midseason premiere, then a season finale). Too much time away from the viewers. Out of sight, out of mind, out of a job.

But Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger had a pretty good premiere season. Hopefully, the long hiatus means a powerful second season is on the way. We will see next month!

The World Will Never Be The Same. ‘Brightburn’ Comes To Theaters This May (Trailer)

Of all the super-sci-fi-thriller…

I mean. At first, I wanted to smack the kid. Repeatedly. Then, seeing the trailer… it becomes VERY apparent… that that would VERY bad for my health #DeadAzz #KillerKid

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.

The ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Debuts In Theaters April 12th (Redband Trailer)

Yeah, this “Hellboy” trailer had to be redband to really get the point across. Truth is, the snip with Hellboy and the sorceress making out in the bloodbath alone earns that stamp.

Yes. That is in there. Watch!

Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.

Debut Season Of “Doom Patrol” On The DC Universe Streaming Platform (Trailer)

Cyborg’s in there on the team, too. Cool!

New episode every Friday. Already started on February 15th.

DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

I’m catching up on this this weekend. I promise you. Looks like the storylines could go really far out there given this trailer!

The Latest Offering Of The X-Men Franchise, “Dark Phoenix,” Hits The Big Screen June 7th (Trailer)

Well, well. The old run of the ‘X-Men’ blockbusters starting around the turn of the century put out a take on The Phoenix Saga. But this version though… Maaaaan, LET’S GO!

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
– 20th Century Fox

New trailer. Got pushed back a bit from before (earlier post here) but you won’t be mad after watching this.

After 10 Years Of Extraterrestrial Occupation, The Resistance Rises (Trailer)

Food for thought: That word ‘insurgency’ we hear in the news nowadays takes on a different meaning when WE are the insurgents, right? The colonialists that raised an army in America, eventually led by General George Washington… Brittain considered them insurgents (not ‘freedom fighters’ or the resistance that would ultimately give birth to the United States of America).

That said, I’m rooting for the insurgents in this “Captive State” trailer, and for the movie itself. Hope it smashes at the box office. Looks like some good popcorn chewing scarfing action!

Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, “Captive State” explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents.

After Seven ‘Fast & Furious’ Movies, A ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Spinoff? Yes! (Trailer)

The fate of the world depends on Hobbs and Shaw working together? A second time? They really, REALLY must be out of their rabid rabbit azz MINDS!! Then again, looking at the trailer, this whole flick is an ‘Are you out of your #$%! mind???’ experience. And we are here for it!

After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.

– Universal Pictures UK

They got Idris running down the side of a skyscraper like it was flat land! Wow. Just wow. Do we even need fast cars at this point? Hahaaa!
