In Darkness is a London-set thriller about a blind musician who finds herself down a dark path into London’s gritty criminal underworld. A change that happens after she hears a murder committed in the apartment upstairs.

Directed by Anthony Byrne and co-written by both Byrne and Dormer; Emily Ratajkowski, Natalie Dormer and Ed Skrein star…

I think the music / sound effects did a little too much to make this movie seem more exciting. Nevertheless, I look forward to what is hopefully a great thriller. I excited to seeing an example of just how resourceful a blind person can be.

Joely Richardson, Lexie Benbow-Hart and James Cosmo also star…

In Darkness Release Dates: May 25th, 2018 (US)…

DEADPOOL (2016): For The Cool Action & Refreshing Dialogue

I’ve loved Deadpool’s star, Ryan Reynolds’s sense of humour and comic timing ever since his television sitcom days in Two Guys, A Girl & A Pizza Place (1998-2001). Fast forward to me watching the first Deadpool trailer in 2015 and there I was with reason to be excited.

Generally speaking, my enthusiasm for the superhero genre has been decreasing steadily in recent years. In other words, for me to get excited about another new superhero franchise, it’d better be refreshingly different somehow.

Besides the movie’s much spoken about uncensored expletives, repeated breaking of the ‘fourth wall’ and the humorous dialogue, there isn’t really much else about Deadpool that’s particularly new compared to the average superhero movie. Not to say that I didn’t have a good time, mind you, because those cool action sequences were a highlight. Overall, I found director Tim Miller’s movie adequately entertaining.

One thing I did find impossible not to notice as I watched Deadpool is the general attractiveness of the cast. Especially the three main characters played by Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin and Ed Skrein (Ajax). Considering the fact that Reynolds spends a good amount of the movie’s running time in prosthetics that aren’t particularly easy on the eyes, perhaps pressure was felt by the filmmakers to redress the balance. Maybe indeed.

Did anyone else notice how much Ed Skein resembles a rather beefed-up version of Nicholas Hoult? Deadpool is a fun ride. Watch it for the humour, action, etc.

KILL YOUR FRIENDS (2015): New Trailer Starring Nicholas Hoult, Ed Skrein & James Corden

So far it’s clear that the latest film from Nicholas Hoult, Ed Skrein and James Corden, Kill Your Friends is at least as dark as the movie’s title suggests. I like the way the trailer is quite entertaining on it’s own, without making me strongly want to watch the actual movie…

In the event that I do decide to tune in to Kill Your Friends, it’ll be to see what Hoult does with the character more than anything else. For now, something is telling me to watch American Psycho (2000) again. There’s also a desire in me to dance around like a crazy person after hearing the party music in this trailer.

Rosanna Arquette, Tom Riley and Georgia King also star.

Naturally, after a good trailer trailer comes  an even better…

It’s about time Ryan Reynolds caught a real break. Looks like I’ll be  able to add Deadpool to my list of favourite Reynolds comedy films. So far that list consists of The Voices (2014) and sitcom Two Guys, A Girl & A Pizza Place.

Directed by Tim Miller, the rest of the supporting cast includes Gina Carano, brianna Hildbrand, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin and Rachel Sheen to name jus a few.

DEADPOOL (2016): Before The Trailer, First, The Trailer Trailer

Film and comic book fans have been going crazy over the recent Deadpool trailer trailer. And no. That’s not a typo. The makers of the film have indeed released an actual trailer, for the trailer…

If like myself you’re a non-reader of comic books or just unfamiliar with the Deadpool story but want to make sense of what you’ve just seen, here’s what wikipedia had to say about this Marvel Comics / X-Force / X-Men Origins character:

‘Deadpool is a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with the superhuman ability of an accelerated healing factor. He is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” because of his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.’

Based on what I’ve watched of the films star, Ryan Reynolds in terms of other works, he seems well cast as the lead. Particularly regarding his comic abilities.
