Franchise Wars

With the release of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropping earlier this week, and the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi due out in a few days, nerd-dom is at its highest of levels right now. And while I cannot wait to see The Last Jedi in theaters on opening day, I’ve come to realize that I am more excited for Avengers than I am for Star Wars.

To some, this may seem sacrilegious. The franchises aren’t even in the same category or genre. How can they even be compared?

G.I. Joe: Retaliation wasn’t good . . . It was great!

If I was to  ask you if you to choose between Stephen Sommers the director of the Mummy movies, and Van Helsing, or Jon Chu the director of Step Up 2, Step Up 3D, and the Justin Bieber documentary, to helm a G.I.  Joe movie, chances are you would choose wrong.  Jon Chu, known mostly for directing music related films knocked it out of the park with G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  It completely wiped the craptastic taste out of my mouth that I had thanks to the Sommers movie, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra.

27 Minutes in Heaven with Filmmaker Ross Patterson

You all know the story, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the USA, was out on a hunting trip with his buddies when a chance encounter with a werewolf left a couple of his friends dead and a chunk bitten out of his leg. What he didn’t know at the time was that werewolf bites give you polio. He was also not aware of the deeper conspiracy involving the Third Reich. Now, the history books may tell it differently, but that’s how Ross Patterson’s film FDR: American Badass begins, and it only gets better from there. In the most hilarious way possible.  Continue reading 27 Minutes in Heaven with Filmmaker Ross Patterson
