It’s truly unfortunate that after so many delays, The King’s Man is finally going to see the light of day by living in the shade of an epic (and truly incredible) Spidey movie that will dominate the box office for weeks to come. And quite frankly, any non-Spidey attention will likely go to The Matrix Resurrections, which is also hitting theaters on the same day. But if I can make the case for a movie that will likely be buried by stiff competition and rising resurgence of COVID concerns, the film isn’t actually half bad.Continue reading “NOC Review: Manners Maketh ‘The King’s Man’”

In 2014, audiences were introduced to Kingsman — an independent secret service agency hidden in a tailor shop in London, dedicated to saving the world. It’s been seven years and three films since, and the world introduced in Matthew Vaughn’s gonzo spy spectacle has only grown bigger and crazier. And this Christmas, audiences will get to truly witness the bloody beginnings of this organization, when The King’s Man hits theaters next Wednesday, December 22!Continue reading “Looking Good and Feeling Good at ‘The King’s Man’ Press Conference”
Whoo! This December is looking to be one for the records folks! In addition to the extraordinary-looking Spider-Man: No Way Home, WB announced a new Matrix film for the holidays as well, entitled The Matrix Resurrections. However, not to be outdone, 20th Century Studios is also releasing a minor bazooka of its own — the long delayed The King’s Man!Continue reading “New Red-Band Trailer for ‘The King’s Man’”
Ever wonder about how the top-secret British intelligence organization known as Kingsman came to be? This December, wonder no longer! Long before the days of Harry, Eggsy, and Merlin, the world was plagued by the worst evil masterminds and tyrants. And in that chaos, an agency rose to the occasion to stop them all! This is the story of The King’s Man!Continue reading “New Special Look at ‘The King’s Man’ Debuts”
As I came up with the title for this review, I got emotional. It’s been a long, difficult time for me not being able to enjoy a film in a darkened theater. You see, film is my second passion (behind superhero comic books of course), and while going to the cinema is an absolutely necessary sacrifice in the name of public health and safety, I can’t deny I’ve missed it. And A Quiet Place Part II represents the first film I’ve seen in a theater since March of 2020.Continue reading “NOC Review: A Worthy Return to ‘A Quiet Place’”
I am really excited for A Quite Place: Part 2! The first film had an amazing premise with enormous thrills and chills of suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat! I cannot wait to see what the story lies ahead for the Abbott Family! After being delayed for over a year, the sequel is finally here.Continue reading “The Wait is Over: The Final Trailer to ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ is Here”
The wisdom of Solomon! The strength of Hercules! The stamina of Atlas! The power of Zeus! The courage of Achilles! And the speed and flight of Mercury! Those are all the powers that are imbued upon mere mortal 14-year old Billy Batson to become The World’s Mightiest Mortal, SHAZAM! (Note for all you noobs who have no idea what I’m talking about — I said SHA-ZAM, not to be confused with KA-ZAAM, the genie who plays basketball better than he acts, raps, or plays Shaq-Fu.)
Back in May of 2018, a group of reporters visited the set of Captain Marvel on the Sony lot in Los Angeles to experience Marvel’s newest superhero in person. Although we have not been officially introduced to the feminist hero yet in the MCU, we were given signs of her arrival at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
As we have seen in the trailers and released photos, we are introduced to Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers (Brie Lawson), in the 1990s. This isn’t an origin story. From her first introduction, she already has her powers and is part of the elite military force on the Kree planet Hala. Her Starforce teammates include Korath (Djimon Hounsou) and Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan). There are flashbacks to Danvers’ life as she embarks on her adventure on Earth and meets a young S.H.I.E.L.D. agent named Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Together, they must work to stop the Skrulls, led by Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), from completing an evil plot.

So recently I got an opportunity to catch director Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword which stars Charlie Hunnam as The Once and Future King. The film can best be summed up as Camelocked Stocked and Two Smoking Barrels.
