Alright, so this is my first ever review for a trailer.  Will I start doing this more often or is it a one time thing? I have no idea.  What I do know is I had to talk about this trailer because… oh boy. If you haven’t seen the trailer because you desire to see the movie fresh definitely stop reading here because there may be potential spoilers.  You have been warned.  I’ll also include a link to the new trailer below in case you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again.

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

A while back I made a Top 10 Animated Movies list (check it out here), which is actually my most viewed post ever and it’s not even that close.  But after seeing The Good Dinosaur last week, I decided that Pixar deserved its own list.  So after looking at the movies coming out this week and not being able to come up with a suitable topic, I decided this week was perfect to do it.  I’ve rewatched a bunch of these and some have shuffled positions from where they were on the animated movies list.  Without further ado, let’s get to it.

In honor of the excellent looking Rocky spin-off, Creed, coming out this week, I’m looking at the best boxing movies.  This list shows that when I do these lists, I try to keep the picks somewhere in between the best overall movies and the ones that entertain me the most.  Because if I just went off my favorites, Rocky IV would be at the top.  And if we are being honest, Rocky IV doesn’t belong at the top of any list.  Well maybe a Top 10 most patriotic movies list.  But not this one.  Does it make it at all? Find out below. Let’s get to it: Ding!

Classic Movie Reviews are occasional posts in which I review a movie from the past. It might have to do with a movie coming out that week or just a personal favorite of mine. These reviews may contain spoilers.

With Creed coming out this week, I’m looking at the film that started the series.  Normally, when a film that is part of a franchise comes out, I review all of the films from that franchise.  However, giving worthwhile reviews would entail watching Rocky V again, and, well no one wants to watch Rocky V again.  I mean, come on, I reviewed all of the Hunger Games movies last week and there are only but so many bad movies I can stand.  But we aren’t talking about the Hunger Games here. Or Rocky V. Or bad movies for that matter.  So let’s get to the review of arguably the best boxing movie ever.

The highly popular Hunger Games franchise is finally and mercifully coming to a close this Friday.  Because of that, I’m taking a look at the previous 3 movies.  I know a ton of people love these movies, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why.  As always with the franchise reviews, these will be shorter than normal reviews.  If you want to hear a more in depth discussion on these movies, it was the topic of our podcast last week.  Check that out here.

Disclaimer: No, I have not read the books.  I watch movies.  A movie franchise should stand alone from whatever book franchise it’s based on.  I read the Harry Potter books and never found myself defending the movies based on things I found in the book.  It shouldn’t and doesn’t matter.  Rant over.

The Hunger Games

The movie that kicks off the franchise also happens to be the worst movie of the bunch. 

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

In honor of the (hopefully) last Hunger Games movie coming out this weekend, I’m doing this week’s Top 10 list on movies that were based in some capacity off books.  There were a couple qualifiers.  I am forcing myself to only choose movies that I knew were based on books at the time of watching them, or shortly thereafter.  So as much as I’d like to put Die Hard on the top of a list for like the fourth time, I didn’t know it was based on a book until fairly recently, far after I had originally seen it.  I am not, however, forcing myself to pick movies based on books I have read because at that point, the list would end up being approximately 2 movies. Anyway, let’s get to my picks.
