Arrow – Episode 18 -“Disbanded” Trailer

 

Last night, I watched what was probably the best episode of Arrow since Deathstroke killed Oliver Queens mother. I’d go so far as to say it was the best acting job I had seen Steven Amell ever do and he and Josh Segerra(Prometheus)really created some of the most intense scenes I had ever seen on the show.

I had never seen Josh Segerra act anywhere other than Arrow but with each episode he more and more defines and crafts this character so well that he’s pushing with each episode into being the 2nd best villain to be featured in the series(Not sure if anything could top Deathstroke).

Obviously if you have not seen this weeks episode there are spoilers contained within.

Wonder Woman – Origins Trailer

 

This trailer , I think, was actually done better then the first two. The first two were well done, but seemed much more action orientated where this one slowed it down a bit and delved into Wonder Woman’s origin story and alluded more to who she really is and the bloodline she has running through her veins.

At a few points during the trailer I even felt it had a bit of a Gladiator vibe to it which didn’t hurt it. As she introduced herself at the 2 minute mark, I even saw a sly “homage” to Maximus Decimus Meridius and his famous introduction to villain Commodus in Gladiator.

I hope Chris Pines character in this movie is not that of a “sidekick cuck” but we’ll see. It certainly seems that way so far. Hopefully they flesh(see the trailer) his character out a bit more .

Movie is out June 2nd ,2017

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Part 1?

This one seems more personal. Jack Sparrow may have pissed off the wrong guy this time around. I like that. Also seems they are going a bit darker which I also approve of. Seems to be a more focused conflict then the last time around.

I didn’t see Keira Knightley or Orlando Bloom in the trailer so guessing they are not in this one. It does state that is the “beginning of an adventure” so this may be a two parter. Great to see Geoffery Rush back either way. I’ll probably regret saying this but as of right now I’m looking forward to seeing this.
