At long last,
what the world have long waited for, the third Thor standalone movie. Seriously, this is the third Thor standalone movie and completes a trilogy along side Captain America and Iron Man. How will this trilogy end and will it equal the the previous two? Here are a few short words about Thor: Ragnarok.
The lawyers at Sony and Marvel
join forces and release its third Spider-Man reboot since 2002. This time its Tom Holland in a MCU stamped stand-alone film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. But he’s not alone, Tony Stark makes several cameo appearances as his mentor and tutor. Will this be “Amazing” or better?
The Dark Universe,
is coming with fantastic, legendary creatures from the properties of Universal Studios. Thanks to the trailer, it made me a skeptic and the movie plummets on my “must watch” list behind Cars 3 and Despicable Me 3. Is nostalgia out of reach? Do I want to see a movie rewritten by studio committee?
The DC universe finally
has a film that isn’t terrible. It’s Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot reprises her role again as Diana in a film telling an origin story the first time. It’s a sequel disguised as a prequel released months before Justice League another sequel to the prequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Will this be another box office flop? Or will this be the first of many successes to rival the cash flow of Marvel?
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tells No Tales,
is the fifth “Pirates” film based on the famous Disney dark ride. It is also the second stand-alone film since the original trilogy. Is the franchise still entertaining and exciting? Or has Johnny Depp’s career sinking to the depths of Davey Jones’ locker?
When Dick Hallorann needs a snowcat,

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,
is another cash register working overtime for Disney/Marvel. Three years after surprising us with a gang of galactic outlaws, the Guardians return in another adventure. In many ways its different from the original, as subtle as they are. But its no less exciting.
It’s not a reboot, superhero sequel.
It stars Tom Hanks and Emma Watson in a modern-day relevant story. High tech suspense that most everyone in the modern day age can relate to. Why am I not surprised its tanking at the box office? It’s another Tom Hanks movie co-staring an up and rising actress that few else will see.
It’s a monster name that inspires fear, exhilaration, and excitement. In the age of reboots and re-imagining, comes Kong: Skull Island. It’s the latest adaptation of the giant ape invented in 1933. Seen on opening weekend in fantastic 2-D, this is a no-spoiler review.
