Ladybird is an interesting movie, and it’s a dark comedy about a teenager who’s nickname is Lady Bird, and no she’s not a ladybird. Or a bird, but a teenager. Laura Marano from the Disney’s Austin and Ally stars in the Oscar Nominated film.  Saoirse Ronan is an interesting and fascinating actor you may recognize her from Hanna (2011) and The Lovely Bones (2009). Since Ladybird won the Globes for the lead actress, it did not win for best director by Greta Gerwig. However, she is nominated for the Oscar which is better. Watch the review Lady Bird

Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri. After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon — an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence — gets involved, the battle is only exacerbated. If you go to Ebbing Missouri and find out there’s no Ebbing Missouri then you are lost.  Ebbing Missouri does not exist, but they did film it in Asheville, NC and near the mountains. Road trip. The trailer for Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri

Justice League: Super Friends

Justice League is the sequel to Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice when Superman get’s killed by Doom, a Kryptonian creature, but does he live?  We will apparently find out. Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince unite a team consisting of Barry Allen (the flash}, Arthur Curry (Aqua Man) and Victor Stone(Cyborg) to face the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth, while the world reflects on Superman’s death.

Since they have new characters in the movie, will it draw the audience to see it or how did Superman come back from the dead. Will Superman become a Super-Zombie-Man?

We have seen the origin story of Wonder Woman in the summer of 2017; this is not the sequel to Wonder Woman, that will come in 2019. And they are working it right now, and one of the producers was fired because of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Did you know that November 17, 1992, is the 25th anniversary of the death Superman in the DC Comics?

Did you know this is the first time DC Movies demanded a film under 2 hours with some credits at the beginning of the movie? The movie is 120 minutes long, with an after-credit scene after the first half. The rest with credits at the end thanking people and the soundtrack of the movie is awesome. And be aware of the Easter egg references in the movie, it will or might give clues in the movie for the Superheroes.


Oh, by the way, each of the superheroes has their screen time. The dialogue is clever and smart; and humorous. It’s all about their character.

Cyborg, Flash, and Aquaman will definitely have their own movies in the future. Will you see it when it comes out?

By the way, I love this movie go see it this weekend.


Superman: Man of Steel

Man of Steel

It’s  a bird, it’s a plane,  a reborn of superman?  And it was good. Did you know Superman will be celebrating his 75 years as a comic book superhero? He can still out run a bullet! Not bad for his age.

The story is totally different and it is set during the present time of the 21st century or is it the 22nd century.  People are thinking will this movie be good, of course it will, it is so much better to reboot the movie, who will want to watch the 1978 movie of Superman? That’s 35 years ago. Christopher Reeve is no longer with us, but we do need a someone who can portray him, Henry Cavil, he has that chiseled face of a superhero.  Bringing back the old actors from the past may not be good. Who wants to see Lois Lane in a cane? Or other actors in a cane? And for the villains probably in the cane, fighting with their cane.

This is the story of Superman and his arrival to earth and his adventure begins. General Zod and his followers  wanted the unborn son Kal-El, but the baby escaped in a pod to earth. Jor-El accompany the codex  implanted in him. Jor-El sentence General Zod and his followers to jail. But Zod escaped from the Phantom Zoom  and came back to Jor-El and murders the parents.  Zod and  his followers must get the codex and destroy Superman once for all.

The baby was found  and they adopted the son.  Jonathan and Martha Kent, name him Clark Kent. He slowly getting to know his powers. Jonathan reveals to a teenage Clark that he is an alien, and advises him to not use his powers publicly, fearing that society will reject him. After Jonathan’s death, an adult Clark spends several years living a nomadic lifestyle, working different jobs under false names.

Lois Lane, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist from the Daily Planet, also discovers the ship while pursuing a story and is rescued by Clark when she is injured. Lois’s editor Perry White rejects her story of a “superhuman” rescuer, so she traces Clark back to Kansas with the intention of writing an exposé. After hearing his story, she decides not to reveal his secret.

Henry Cavil

Henry Cavill, is the first British actor to play the character. It would be funny, if superman spoke in a British accent, but he was trained to speak American and not as an alien. He was previously considered for the role in the 2006 film Superman Returns, but lost out to Brandon Routh. Cavill has stated that “There’s a very real story behind the Superman character”, explaining that everyone’s goal has been to explore the difficulties his character faces as a result of having multiple identities – including his birth name, Kal-El, and his alter ego, Clark Kent. Cavill also stated that “He’s alone and there’s no one like him,” referring to Superman’s vulnerabilities.

Amy Adams

Amy Adams was selected from a list of actresses that included Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis and Kristen Stewart. Kristen Stewart from ‘Twilight’  audition and she was not selected.  The producers wanted Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful.—and they pass Kristen  Steward.


Michael Shannon is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role.” When Goyer was asked about why Zod was chosen as the villain, he stated, “The way (Christopher) Nolan and I have always approached movies as well is you never say, ‘Hey, which villain would be cool for this movie?’ You start with the story first. What kind of story? What kind of theme do you want to tell? So we worked that out. Then, usually the villain becomes obvious in terms of who’s going to be the appropriate antagonist for that. When you guys see the movie, the only villain we could’ve used was Zod and the Kryptonians.

Since it is making good box-office record all around the world and expecting to be number one for the next three weeks from now. Director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer would both be returning for a Man of Steel sequel which is being fast tracked by Warner Bros. Goyer had previously signed a three-film deal, which included Man of Steel, its sequel, and a Justice League film featuring Superman. Christopher Nolan is also expected to return as producer, albeit in a lesser role than he had in this film.
