Darkness Rises as a Revolution Catches Fire in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1!”


Everyone’s favorite post-apocalyptic heroine is back! Yep, Jennifer Lawrence has put her acting chops back into “Katniss Everdeen,” delivering another thrilling installment of “The Hunger Games!” This time around Katniss is no longer the pretend darling of President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and The Capitol, but instead truly becomes the symbol of the growing rebellion within each of the remaining eleven districts. As you might remember, District 12 was destroyed in the prior film in retaliation for Catniss’s sabotage of the latest Hunger Games. She, her family, Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and a few citizens of the district were saved but most were killed in the attack. They are taken in by District 13. This district was long thought destroyed in the previous civil war, but has instead adapted to living underground, growing stronger to be able to unite the other districts in war against The Capitol.

Are You “The DUFF?” Hilarious New Movie will have you wondering!


“The (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) DUFF.” Everyone knows or has one of them, but maybe you have never had the correct term (or courage) to describe one. Usually they are the “not so pretty” girl that pretty girls use to make themselves look better. This latest film hilariously pokes fun at that. Bianca (Mae Whitman) is a laid back high school senior whose self-image is decimated when she learns the rest of her classmates know her as “The DUFF” to her prettier, more popular friends. She sets out on a mission of reinvention to overthrow the school’s resident mean girl and label maker, Madison (Bella Thorne) and prove once and for all no matter what you look or act like everyone is someone else’s DUFF.


This film will go down in high school cinematic history. It is beyond funny! Eerily it reminds me of “She’s All That” meets “Mean Girls.” However, I must say Bella Thorne as “Madison” would easily give The Plastics a run for their money. I suppose Toby (Robbie Amell) will be her Freddy Prinze Jr./Shining Knight in the film ultimately. Still this will be worth seeing! You can catch “The DUFF” in theaters everywhere Friday, April 10, 2015!


Meet Your New “Joker” & “Harley Quinn!” DC’s Villainous Couple coming to The Big Screen soon!


After Heath Ledger’s riveting and scary portrayal of The Joker film projects have been apprehensive about returning the character to The Big Screen. All that seems to be changing now that a new DC Comics film is in the works focusing on “The Suicide Squad,” a team of super villains sponsored by The U.S. Government to go on missions that are basically “suicide” as time served for their crimes. One of the members of the team is none other than Joker’s girlfriend, “The Clown Princess” herself, Harley Quinn. As you may, or may not know, Harley debuted on the nineties’ “Batman The Animated Series.” There, she was Joker’s personal psychiatrist, but instead of trying to treat the mad man she inadvertently fell in love with him. Since then the two have had an on again, off again relationship, marked with highs that include Harley being launched from a cannon and she in turn nearly killing him. Yep, they are the pinnacle of psychotic love tempered with extreme domestic violence!


The actors they have tapped to play these amazing villains show DC is truly ready to stand up to Marvel, laying the groundwork for a pretty stellar cinematic universe. Oscar Award-winner, Jared Leto is rumored to be The Joker. He is a master actor whose flare for the dramatic will do “The Clown Prince of Crime” justice. He will definitely have to shed those luscious locks for a new green doo, however! Harley Quinn’s portrayal will come from none other than Margot Robbie. Margot is beautiful, talented, and she greatly resembles DC’s latest incarnation of the character. She is no stranger to crazy roles so this should be right up her alley. This marks Harley’s debut in film, but it is absolutely necessary to show these two together. You get to see just how cunning and manipulative Joker really is; and how truly psychotic and deadly Harley is. A match made in Hell right? The Suicide Squad is slated for release in 2016, the same year as the highly anticipated film, “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice!”


Marvel Under Attack? New Facebook Leak & Google Case has Marvel Studios up in arms!

Somebody’s getting fired! Beyoncè made the phrase famous at a concert and Marvel took notice. The popular publishing company is FURIOUS over the new Avengers; Age of Ultron trailer leak. I sat at my computer about two weeks ago and watched the trailer in complete awe. That movie is definitely a must see on my summer 2015 list, as the last one was incredible. Anyways, I noticed that shortly after, the trailer was down on every site including my own. A few days later, it was back up. I didn’t think anything of it but apparently, it’s kind of a big deal.
[Marvel asked for information on pseudonymous user] “John Gazelle,” who uploaded a version of the trailer to Google Drive. The judge agreed, telling Google to fork over the IP address of the person who uploaded the leaked file to Drive, as well as the IP addresses associated with the person’s Google+ and YouTube accounts. On November 18, Google will have to appear in court with that information. Since this initial leak, a Facebook user going by the handle Adoro Filmes, has posted footage from the upcoming home video release of Guardians of the Galaxy, including a sneak peek at Avengers: Age of Ultron, online.  Marvel has yet to file charges against Adoro. Nevertheless, this latest slew of pirating is yet another headache for the film company.
This summer, a full-length version of the new Expendables movie leaked ahead of its release, and the movie was ultimately a flop. But a new Avengers movie is even bigger — certain to be the blockbuster event of the year — and Marvel doesn’t wants everything released outside its own schedule. I don’t blame them and honestly it’s a shame that people seriously leak these kinds of things. Actors and artists get paid off of their work, if hackers keep leaking things, people won’t be able to make a living. It has to be extremely frustrating for the publishing companies. I hope the person is caught and prosecuted, maybe these leaks will happen less since Marvel is taking action. No pun intended.
