X GAMES ASPEN 2016 (EXTREME SPORTS)


 The 1st leg of the Winter X Games has returned! During the next 4 days one of my favorite sporting events will showcase some of the finest snowboarders in the world. If you are a hyper person and enjoy high adrenaline sports then I cannot recommend the X Games enough. Some people prefer Summer X, and others Winter X. Both are rad, and Aspen is ready to start it off this year. More info available at the X Games site.

THE REVENANT (MOVIE REVIEW, 2016, ACTION/HISTORICAL)



Spoilers ahead so be warned. 1.

 Peace all. I may need to keep this review short sadly due to all my music activities, but we will blog and see how it goes. 

  Ok so I went to watch The Revenant with friends, which already probably will be one of the best movies released in 2016. As much as I'm a sci fi nerd I'm happy that we are now starting to receive some solid movies as I personally think the on going Marvel over saturation hasn't helped due to poor quality with some of the movies. Its led to audiences becoming tired of those films, but this is where The Revenant & other movies soon to be released will fill this void, and restore a balance. 

   If you want to start the year off with a solid film and are not sure what to choose then let me recommend The Revenant. This has truly been a labor of love for the director and it clearly shows on screen. The cinematography and camera work are excellently done presenting us with a vast sprawling landscape depicting the natural world in a vivid, beautiful, and at times extremely harrowing dangerous place in which to find yourself. 

  Care has been taken to capture the beauty of the trees, rivers, animals, and people that populated 1820s North America. Frequently The Revenant reminds audiences just how brutal it was to have lived during this period. 

  The central plot revolves around 19th century explorer Hugh Glass, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and his quest for survival and revenge. 15-20 minutes into the movie we witness a savage bear attack (it is gruesome so its not something you can pass off as romantic comedy) which leaves Glass fighting for survival. His hunting team abandons Glass, leaving him to his fate, but this is only the start of the story.

  To try and skip over some of the events so we don't 'spoil' this I will just mention an event happens sparking the desire for survival and revenge in Hugh Glass. He really does suffer through this movie with the guy throwing himself into white water rapids, and going over a cliff face on his horse. Its truly harrowing, but yet he keeps going, refusing to give up.

  There is one scene that just again shows off the cinematography of this movie with a herd of buffalo running across the plains as Glass watches. Its quite special and a reminder of how beautiful nature is. 

  The acting is extremely well done with strong memorable characters all round that create a lasting impression. Tom Hardy who plays the nemesis of Glass displays  another fine performance crediting the actor's diversity. Bane, Mad Max, and his role in Child 44 with Gary Oldman, and now as Fitzgerald in The Revenant testify why he is a diverse actor. 

  The action scenes are extremely brutal and relentless. I remarked earlier that this is a film you probably couldn't pass off as a romantic comedy lol so it might not appeal to your respective girlfriends/boyfriends. Its an intentional move from the director to pull the audience into the sheer unforgiving environment of the American wilderness in the 19th century. From the beginning of The Revenant you are presented with both the harsh and serene aspects of nature. It was a brutal time to live back then, and the movie demonstrates this perfectly. 

  When leaving the theater I had a real sense that I did get value for my money, and felt like I had watched something compelling. The Revenant has been crafted superbly in every aspect. I highly recommend it to you all, but be warned this is a brutal tale of survival, but also that the human spirit and quest for hope is always there. 

  Another movie that has gone under the radar you may want to watch is Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks, but sadly I'm too swamped with the music side of things to blog a review. 

  The Revenant is awesome stuff and highly recommended, especially if you are little tired of the hype with A Force Awakens (I say that as a SW nerd). 

  To conclude I genuinely hope The Revenant receives the recognition it deserves, and inspires others to start making some solid films so there is a balance restored to the movie theaters.

Nightwing: The Series - Episode 1 [Deathstroke] (FAN FILM/NET SERIES)

 

 Hey all. I slept on this series, but no longer! This is one of the best fan films I've watched. Its the full mini series about the hero Nightwing. The guy's created and filmed this through raising funds via Kickstarter. All of it is non profit, and its a fine piece of work considering the limits of what they had to work with. I'll blog all the season 1  episodes for you all, but it is highly recommended & definitely worth a watch.

Star Wars - Versus: The Way to Shadow


 Peace all. Just wanted to share some SW fan films that are worth watching and faithful to the universe. The Way to Shadows is a popular fan film that was released around 2yrs ago. I will not give too much away, but I do want to say that the central lead is a grey jedi, which for non nerds is someone who uses both the light and dark side of the force. But, in this instance we see the dark side of the force used in a very brutal manner, which previously has only been depicted in books & games.

 I'll blog some more SW fan movies over the coming days. Enjoy. 1.

The Flash Season 2 "Everything Will Change" Promo (HD)

NEXT MOVIE REVIEWS/TV SHOW SHOUT OUTS/NERD THOUGHTS


 Yo peace all. Its now 2016 and am quite stoked already for some of the movie releases this year. I'm actually psyched about some of the movies due soon ranging from The Hateful Eight, The Revenant, and The Free State of Jones. I will be attempting to review each of these movies as I see them. First up will be The Hateful Eight, which I'm going to watch this week. 

  Some new TV shows to shout out that are worth a look are:

Beowulf Return to the Shieldlands & Texas Rising.

Other TV shows set to return this month are:

  Arrow & The Flash. The Flash in my opinion is the best nerd series on TV, and the new trailer for the remainder of season 2 revealed the return of the Reverse Flash. I'll blog the trailer next so you can see for yourselves, which has me thinking of some theories already. 

 Also Vikings & Black Sails return too. Its a good time to be a super nerd lol.
