I Am Not Okay With This Trailer

Here’s a show that feels like it was genetically constructed by scientists in a secret underground lab to be an enormous hit. It’s a Netflix series about awkward youths, one who seemingly has super-powers, starring two of the leads from It, produced by the folks behind Stranger Things, and created by the team behind Netflix’s own The End of the F***ing World. Oh, and it’s based on a comic from Chuck Forsman, who also created the source material for The End of the F***ing World.

Yeah, we’re probably going to be hearing a lot about I Am Not Okay With This and you can watch the trailer below.

Minions: The Rise of Gru Super Bowl Spot

While some animation aficionados like to turn their noses up at the work of Illumination, there’s no denying their power at the box office. And the first footage from Minions: The Rise of Gru, which arrived during the Super Bowl, suggests that they’ve crafted yet another billion dollar hit. If you have a child in your life, you’re probably going to end up seeing this one. Probably a dozen times or more.

No Time to Die Super Bowl Spot

Any new James Bond movie is a big deal, but No Time to Die is a bigger deal than usual. It’s Daniel Craig‘s final outing as Agent 007 and it’s also the twenty-fifth film in the franchise. That’s an astonishing number to reach and that means the Craig and director Cary Joji Fukunaga have to deliver the goods. You don’t want to mess this one up, after all.

Thankfully, the new Super Bowl spot (featuring new snippets of action-packed footage) promises something big and appropriately intense. Check it out below.

mulan trailer

While you can’t walk two steps on the internet without finding someone groaning about Disney’s slate of live-action remakes of animated movies, there’s no getting around the box office. These movies are hits. Huge hits. Enormous hits. Hits big enough to justify all of the critical finger-wagging. So it would be easy to be cynical about Mulan, which hits theaters next month. And yet, all of the trailers, including the new Super Bowl spot, suggest a Disney live-action remake that stands out from the crowd.

Obi-Wan Kenobi TV Series

Last week, there were rumblings across the internet suggesting that Lucasfilm’s Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series was in trouble. Rumors claimed that the show, which was being developed for the Disney+ streaming service, was cancelled. Or that star Ewan McGregor (reprising his role from the Star Wars prequel trilogy) had left. However, the truth is now out there and while it certainly sounds like the show has suffered a major setback, it also sounds like Lucasfilm is determined to course correct.

The Obi-Wan Kenobi series has been shut down, albeit temporarily, so the scripts can be completely rewritten.

Jacob Hall’s Top 10 Movies of 2019

Jacob Hall's Top 10 Movies of 2019

Here’s the dirty little secret about end-of-the-year lists on movie websites: every year is actually a great year for movies if you see enough of them. Still, with that out of the way, 2019 was an exceptionally great year for cinema. The films that didn’t make this list could fill another top 10 and no one would blink! But because honorable mentions are a coward’s way out, I’m only offering you the final list after I scraped away everything I could afford to lose. Sorry, everything else.

These are the 10 best movies of 2019 according to little ol’ me.

WandaVision poster D23

Now that The Mandalorian has finished its first season, Disney+ has to do something to keep those millions of subscribers satiated (you know, beyond that massive catalog of classic films and such). A new video announcing what’s coming to the streaming service in 2020 is mostly familiar titles, but there’s one noteworthy addition. WandaVision, the second of Marvel Studios’ streaming series starring characters introduced on the big screen via the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will now arrive this year after originally being announced for 2021.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

A Quiet Place was one of 2018’s perfect cinematic storms. A crowd-pleasing horror adventure with a big, emotional heart. A box office smash, grossing $340 million worldwide on a $17 million budget. A critical darling that used its high concept to tremendous effect. A reminder that Emily Blunt is the profoundly talented leading lady we don’t deserve. And perhaps most surprisingly, evidence that John Krasinski has some serious chops as a filmmaker and that “Jim from The Office” made one of the strongest genre films of the decade and probably shouldn’t be referred to as “Jim from The Office” any longer.

But that means A Quiet Place Part II has a lot to live up to now. Can the story of a family struggling to stay together in a post-apocalyptic landscape filled with monsters with ultra-sensitive hearing continue to prove surprising and terrifying and moving? We shall see, but the first proper trailer for the sequel certainly suggests yes.
