This is what the Fantastic Four should have been. Fun, adventure and great effects. The addition of the Marvel team to Fox and friends ramps up the fun factor by 200 with great results.
Unexpected casting, a twist on the origin story (from Ultimate Fantastic Four) and effects that come straight from the Disney/Marvel toolbox deliver a movie to look forward to. Now, SmuttyCat is not saying this is the next Avengers: AOU, but the FF reboot is clearly a summer fun romp. Action, effects and Dr. Doom, what more could you want?
Check out the trailer and get ready to spend August 7, 2015 inside your local theater.
OK, Smutty has already started his Christmas wish list. Marvel has a great new way to package the superhero movies; in a S.H.I.E.L.D. briefcase! Aughhhhh, September can’t get here fast enough.
But wait, there’s more; it comes with a Tesseract. A Tesseract! Who wouldn’t want one of these? A cube of unlimited energy that can cross dimensions. Everyone who wants to become Supreme Emperor of the Universe needs one of these.
Quick where do I input my human’s credit card number? Before the dog rats me out.
In a summer of reboots, the unlikely candidate Total Recall is getting a new life. Starring Colin Farell in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s role, the new version offers super slick FX. The movie is not blockbuster material, especially following Avengers, Spiderman and Dark Knight, but should offer solid escapist fun.
Enjoy the summer and don’t forget your furry family members.
Well, we’ had Avengers, Amazing Spiderman and now, The Dark Knight Rises. Theatre, Theatre in the Mall, who will be the biggest Superhero movie of them all? While Smutty is betting on Avengers, the heat wave may work in favor of the more recent releases as people with no power look for ways to hide out during the hottest parts of the day. We’ll all see on July 20.
Don’t forget your pet needs to keep cool too, so sneak Fido or Fluffy in a purse or find a pet-friendly mall or cinema.
There has been some mystery surrounding the movie Prometheus, but it has been confirmed that it is a prequel to Alien. The premise of the movie is that humans go seeking the rumored “seeders” of the planet to make contact. It doesn’t go as well as they had hoped.
Smutty is laughing with paws in the air. Humans never see the “big bad” thing coming before they set out to look for something or someone. The saying is curiosity killed the cat, but cats and dogs know when to run from the scary thing coming and don’t keep poking around in dark abandoned spaces.
If you like suspenseful sci-fi, you should love Prometheus. It may not be Avengers, but it is worthy summer viewing.
Memorial Day Weekend the official start of the summer movie season. Some may argue that this year it began early with the Avengers movie, but Will Smith in MIB3 is the official kick-off of laid back summer in the air-conditioned theatre, fun. From the previews, fun is the name of the game in MIB3. So, put on your shorts and sunglasses and head to the nearest movie house for some great fun.
Smutty completely approves of Avengers movie. It has action and humor mixed well together and Iron Man has some of the best movie lines ever. No disrespect to Marvel movies before this, but this is clearly what a superhero movie should be. If Marvel’s movies continue to get better at this pace, Smutty may have to get a pacemaker. OK, go see it now. Stop reading, go see it.
