With over 400 scripted show on TV these day it is understandable that networks are looking out for new ways to launch into this competitive and very clustered market. So it would be easier to launch something that has a big fan base all ready. That is why networks are relaunching a lot of shows like Prison Brake, Heroes Reborn, and rumor has it that Fresh Prince of Bel Air are all get a chance to come back, and so is this early 2000’s classic Training Day.

I went to see Terminator: Genisys this weekend. I had read a lot of bad reviews about it so i was not expecting much form it, and thats why I think I left the cinema so happy because I hadn’t built up how grate it was going to be in my head. Straight off the bat I think bringing Schwarzenegger was a grate movie as he brings so much levity to the film by just cracking a stupid smile.

Screen Shot 2015-07-04 at 19.11.55

Before I get into the things I loved about the film I will get the things I didn’t like a bout the film out of the way first. This movie was meant to be a reboot but at the same time act as sequel, and to do this they kept trying to explain time travel which left characters felling like me, not knowing what was happing but going with it anyways.

Now for the good bits, I liked how they seemed to take bitts from the first three movies and put them all together to make this one. Like the scene when Reese comes back to the past the scene fells very much like the scene from the first movie and the car case on the bridge fells like it was taken from the third movie. These are just a few examples.

Screen Shot 2015-07-04 at 19.12.52

Over all I really liked this movie and was happy to see Arnold Schwarzenegger back in the franchise. Emilia Clarke was very good as a strong Sarah Connor. While Jai Courtney was good as Kyle Reese. I give this film 4.5 out of 5 Let me know what you taught of the film leave a comment below.

The Guardian is reporting that Jurassic world is set to have a opening weekend of over $100 million . Experts predict Colin Trevorrow’s film is on course to mimic the barnstorming financial success of the early Steven Spielberg-directed Jurassic Park movies.

Dinosaur disaster movie Jurassic World looks set to be one of the year’s biggest films at the box office after experts predicted a opening of more than $100 million next month.

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 19.00.40The latest installment in Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster Sci-Fi saga about rampaging reptiles on a remote island theme park is due for release on 11 June in the Uk and a Day later in US cinemas. It stars Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt opposite Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio and a brand-new CGI-generated “genetically Modified” dinosaur know as Indominus Rex.

The high box office tracking figures, via BoxOffice.com suggest the new Jurassic Park movie could be on course to mimic the barnstorming financial success of the saga’s early installments. Spieberg’s Jurassic Park was the highest grossing film of all time between 1993 and 1997 when James Cameron’s Titanic took the mantle. A US opening in excess of $100 million would put the new film, Colin Trevorrow, on course to serapes its predecessor provided it also performs well in China.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park also scored decently in 1997 taking $618 million world-wide to land the top three films of the year. However, 2001’s Jurassic  Park 3 managed only $368 million four years later after joe Johnston succeeded Spielberg as director. Check out the trailer.

This weekend see the release of Mad Max Fury Road. The opening scene starts with a with about 2 minutes of dialogue and then a chase scene, and Miller started as he meant to continue with this film as the actions scenes get bigger and better and more spectacular as the film progress,  and the fact that he used very little to no CGI at all added to the look of the film with some grate stunts throughout.

I do have to say and it’s not a bad thing but I felt that the film focused mainly on Charlize Theron’s Furiosa which was not a bad thing as she played the role grate and was a strong lead, but the film was called Mad Max and I just fell that he was there in name only.Some people are saying that Miller wrote Furiosa to be equal with Tom Hardy’s Max but my opinion is that Hardy was just there as a side charter. Now it could have benign written that way to attract more females to the film which might just work.

For me I loved the film it Much like the original film there was not much of a story line, but it looked grate and it was an enjoyable two hours I would defiantly recommend it to anyone that isn’t quite sure what they want to see in the cinema this weekend. I give it a 4 out of 5. Let me know what you taught of it by leaving a comment below. Thanks for reading and until the next time keep on Viewing.

The Hollywood Reporter was reporting that Sony are set to remake 1996 supernatural teen thriller The Craft. Sony has tasked Leigh Janinak, an up and coming horror filmmaker, to write and direct the new version. Janiak will co write the script with Phil Graziadei.

Doug Wick who was The Craft’s original producer, is back in the same capacity, this time producing with Lucy Fisher.

The original starred Robin Tunney, who arrives at a catholic school and befriends a trio of wannabe witches, played by Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True. the Trio turn out to be amateur practioners and welcome Tunney’s character, a natural, into their fold. when they use their magic to fix personal issues, they discover that dark forces aren’t something to trifle with.

The news of a female director coming on board to direct a female centric feature project is welcome news to Hollywood, as it breaks after studios have come under fire for the lack of hiring of women directors at all levels of the film and television industry. Janiak’s Hiring was already weeks in the works; the filmmaker impressed execs with her take on a female empowerment tale

Janiak’s impressed many last year with her debut horror film Honeymoon which premiered at SXSW and was picked up by Magnolia Picture. The move starred Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway as a young couple whose lakeside getaway goes to hell.

This weeks Saturday Night Stay In Movie Is 21 Jump Street. 21 Jump was based on an 80’s TV show of the same name where its two main charters had to go undercover as high school students and find and stop the suppliers of new drug.  The film staring Jonah Hill, Chaning Tatum, and Ice Cube was released back in 2012 and was a critical and a commercial success. 21 Jump Street had a world wide taking of over 201 million, which meant that there was defiantly going to be a 22 Jump Street. Critics praised Tatum for his performance. I think that Hill and Tatum make a grate team.
