oblivion-posterOBLIVION- the 2nd feature by Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski. Trailer for this mysterious Sci-Fi film looks good and a solid cast in super-stars Morgan Freeman and Tom Cruise makes this an easy sell.

star_trek_into_darkness_ver2_xlgSTAR TREK INTO DARKNESS- JJ Abrams follows up one of the most acclaimed entries not just in the Star Trek francise but for Sci-Fi in general with this entry. Great trailer, makes this a MUST SEE in the theaters.

fast_and_furious_six_ver3_xlgFASY AND FURIOUS 6- WAS never a fan of the franchise, but Justin Lin’s helming the 5th movie piqued my interest, and he is on board for this 6th entry. Plus the trailer is just fun!

riddickRIDDICK- Yet another interesting and appealing looking film in a 2013 that is poised to be a very good year for Sci-Fi films.

thebutlerTHE BUTLER- Dramas are not my favorite genre. I can do without DRIVING MISS DAISY type film-making, this includes films like Lee Daniel’s PRECIOUS. Just not subject matter I’m remotely interested in.

That said the premise of this latest Lee Daniel film, THE BUTLER, a look at the White House from the viewpoint of the butler that has served consecutive administrations… intrigues. Add to that a FANTASTIC cast, possibly the cast of the year, that includes Forest Whitaker, Jane Fonda, Robin Williams, Oprah Winfrey, Terrence Howard, John Cusack, Lenny Kravitz, Vanessa Redgrave, Mariah Carey, to name a few; and you have a film that screams to see it in the theater. Also interested in checking out the director’s 2012 golden-globe nominated film PAPERBOY.


X-MEN:FIRST CLASS? uhhh… maybe Budget Class?

A 80 million dollar budget, and you can’t come up with costumes that don’t look like wet cardboard. And where’s Bishop? Evidentally they are throwing in any characters they want, so they could have tossed in Bishop. And the cast… man, Yeah, I really could not have less interest in this movie. It’s a DVD rental.


Dammit! I just saw that Lenny Kravitz’s daughter Zoe Kravitz is in this movie. With her bringing the Storm vibe, I may have to see this movie, just to see her (that’s a big maybe, cause the trailer looks not just bad, but worse… boring. And seems all they have Zoe doing is… pretty sad. Did I see her sans clothes, flapping little butterfly wings in front of the actors playing Magneto, Professor X? Do actresses of color always have to be portrayed in the worst possible light? God I hate Hollywood. But I’ll try and think happy thoughts until I know more).

Because seriously, no one else in the cast has me remotely interested. So if her part is not good, color me uninterested. But what, you couldn’t toss Bishop in as well?! Keith Hamilton Cobb would have made a great Bishop!
