Movie Review – 10 Cloverfield Lane
Outside of that, I didn’t know what to expect going in and avoided spoilers.
I don’t do spoilers, but I will say, don’t go into this film expecting another Cloverfield. It’s an intense psychological drama/thriller. You will spend the entire time on the edge, trying to decide the truth.
The main cast of three are all excellent. John Goodman is especially good – sympathetic and sad one moment, extremely terrifying the next. Mary Elizabeth Winstead was also great, as was John Gallagher, Jr.
Some haven’t liked the ending. The first ninety minutes builds up the question of just what is going on, and you’ll either like the answer or not. (I happened to really like the answer.)
It’s PG-13, so not that bloody violent, but it is intense.
New RiffTrax Shows!
RiffTrax has two shows scheduled this summer and one of them is awesome!!
It's our 10th birthday this July, and to celebrate, we think we could go even bigger for what will be our 20th RiffTrax Live Event: an MST3K Reunion Live Show, as well as a May 5th live show featuring a new HD transfer of the sci-fi classic from Vermont, TIME CHASERS!
And too awesome – it’s already hit its Kickstarter goal.
A RiffTrax: Live show featuring a reunion of the MST3K cast – what could be more amazing?
The new trailer for Captain America: Civil War came out last week – you have to watch it to the very end!
If you’re wondering if the Justice League movie will be as dark as Batman v Superman…
From Jo Blo’s site:
It's clear from the trailers that BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE won't exactly be a cheery picnic full of sunshine and rainbow barfing unicorns, but the DCEU won't necessarily hang on to that darkness for all of its future installments. Chris Terrio, who re-wrote David Goyer's BATMAN V SUPERMAN script, was brought back to pen the script for JUSTICE LEAGUE - PART ONE and the screenwriter told the Wall Street Journal that he doesn't expect the film to be quite as dark as BATMAN V SUPERMAN will be.
Blastr posted the synopsis and teaser art for the upcoming Supergirl/Flash crossover episode:
“Worlds Finest” – Kara gains a new ally when the lightning-fast superhero The Flash (Grant Gustin) suddenly appears from an alternate universe and helps Kara battle Siobhan, aka Silver Banshee, and Livewire in exchange for her help in finding a way to return him home, on SUPERGIRL, Monday, March 28 (8:00-9:00 PM) on the CBS Television Network. Grant Gustin crosses over as The Flash.
World Wide Box Office
Looks like Star Wars: The Force Awakens will end up as third highest grossing overall at $2,054. Billion dollars. (Titanic is just ahead of it with $2,187. billion and Avatar still leads the pack with $2,788. billion.)
Just one month after its release, Deadpool has taken in over $708 million dollars world-wide.
And just ten days after its release, Zootopia has grossed $431 million dollars world-wide. Whoa!
Monday Music Moves Me
I was chosen to select the theme for today – Guitar Solo!
I had hundreds of songs to choose from, including some very heavy selections. (I’m really into the Scandinavian progressive rock scene at the moment.) I decided to showcase the amazing musicianship of the band, Redemption. Their latest, The Art of Noise, was just released last week. (Although this song is from an older album.)
Every song has a magical moment. The point of a great guitar solo is to be that moment.
I give you the beautiful Let it Rain by Redemption:
