Black Panther – Trailer 1 – Chadwick Boseman

Black Panther Black Panther takes place after the events of the overlong mess that was Captain America: Civil War, with King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returning home to the reclusive, technologically advanced nation of Wakanda (in Africa, not South America, as Andy Serkis‘ Ulysses Klaue (aka Klaw) tells us) to serve as his country’s new leader.

However, T’Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with CIA agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

Based on the teaser, in June, it looked like the Marvel well is getting more dry by the film, and the sound of barrels being scraped is getting louder and louder. This new trailer really doesn’t help that.

Blockers – Red Band Trailer 1 – John Cena

Blockers
Blockers looks like one of those 15-rated sweary gross-out comedies that I’m really getting tired of, and this one has the distinctly unpleasant premise of three parents (Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz – both above, and ex-WWE star John Cena) who’ve watched and loved their daughters as they grow up, and now they’ve just realised that the girls have discovered boys, and they have to try to stop their daughters from having sex on Prom night…

The New Mutants – Trailer 1 – X-Men movie

The New Mutants The New Mutants shows that while the main set of films have gone as far as they can with the best one, Logan, there’s always chance for another reboot. And since, as Logan centered around on Wolverine and new girl Laura, I’m wondering if this would take that point in the story and go forward, as the billing just states that five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.

Instead, this one stars Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) with Maisie Williams, Alice Braga , Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga, Happy Anderson, Mickey Gilmore and Thomas Kee.

George Michael: Freedom – The DVDfever Review – Channel 4 documentary

George Michael: Freedom
George Michael: Freedom is the documentary he co-directed, himself, last year, unaware at the time that it would end up screening after he passed away, on Christmas Day 2016, from heart failure.

An immense talent of singing and songwriting, he made some incredible tunes over the years, hitting the peak in 1990, for me. I was working that summer at Little Chef, inbetween school and University, just as Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1 was being released. I was blown away with Praying For Time, even just hearing it over a crappy little radio in the washing up area out back.

So, what we need is a tribute to him which will last for all time… which we don’t get.

UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e October 19th 2017

UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e October 19th 2017Staying at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music chart summary w/e October 19th 2017, is Post Malone with rockstar (feat. 21 Savage), which is a mix of autotune and pointless swearing that just seems to be there to fill up the syllables in each line. Pass.

Released this week is Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross‘ take on John Carpenter’s Halloween. Nothing can improve upon the original, but it’s definitely well worth a listen:

Real Life – Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams Episode 5 – The DVDfever Review

Real Life
Real Life is the fifth episode of Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams, and as well as PKD’s stories being quite weird, I understand a fair emount of the content has been changed, and to those who know the originals, this hasn’t always been for the better, so these TV dramas are loosely based on his stories rather than being accurate representations.

Anyhoo, in this episode, future cop Sarah’s (Anna Paquin) friend, played by Rachelle Lefevre, has a device which gives you an alternate ‘real life’, so a break from your own life, rather like being in a dream or on holiday… or a bit like Total Recall, which is also from the same author.

Double Date – The DVDfever Cinema Review – The perfect Halloween horror-comedy!

Double Date Double Date centres around two women on dates with a difference – they’re homicidal murderers. Yes, if you’ve ever wondered why you didn’t get a second date with a woman – Did she not fancy you? Did you wear the wrong shoes? Is she not impressed by your Xbox Gamertag score? …well, with these two, it’s usually because you’re no longer breathing.

If you thought the stabbing in Basic Instinct‘s opener was gruesome, this (ahem) packs a punch… with a blade.

Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict focuses on the home computer that defined my teenage years – the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Originally known as the ZX-82, it was named the ‘Spectrum’ so to show how it’s full of colour compared to its black-and-white predecessor, the ZX81. Add-ons came in the form of joystick connectors, and the Multiface, initially intended to save games, but since it saved the *entire* game, it could therefore be used to pirate one…
