PODCAST: Hopes & Fears For Mortal Kombat (2021)

Howdy ladies and gentlemen of the internet, I’ve returned with a topic I have wanted to talk about for a while now and it relates to the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot coming out in March 2021. And I’ll be sharing my thoughts via my podcast Film Focus.

On episode 91 of Film Focus, I finally get to discuss my hopes and fears for the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot. Now, while I’m not a hardcore fan of the series and have only played a handful of games in a casual capacity, I love the MK series for its characters, mythology, fight mechanics, crazy violence and fatalities. And while I’ve been excited for the possibilities for a new film, especially after James Wan came onto the project as a producer, the way this film is currently forming makes me a little cautious. So join me as I, a casual fan of the series, talks about what I hope the film will and won’t be.

Anyway here’s the review:

One Piece: Stampede Review

Howdy ladies and gentlemen of the internet, I’m back with another review and though it is a little later than I expected, I am sharing my thoughts on the latest film in the One Piece series; One Piece: Stampede via my podcast Film Focus.

On episode 90 of Film Focus, I’m reviewing One Piece: Stampede; the 14th film from the long-running anime/manga series which is directed by Takashi Otsuka. Now I have been a mega One Piece fan for just over a decade and thought the first trailer looked pretty cool, however, my hype levels really exploded when I found out that the film would have a limited release in the west with a couple of screenings in Canada. So I jumped at the chance to see an OP film at the cinema. So is the film good or not? Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out.

So does this film work or not? Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out.

P.S. I enjoyed talking about this film but beyond that, I have a few thoughts about film discussion and fandom and my passion for talking about films with likeminded individuals and I hope that resonates with you and anyone else that listens.

Spider-Man: Far From Home Review

Howdy people of the internet, how is it going? Today I finally get to share my review for Spider-Man: Far From Home; the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and the latest superhero film from Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures via my podcast Film Focus.

Now I have been interested in watching this film since the first trailer came out last December, but my hype levels really didn’t start to blow up until a weeks before the film’s release and hearing some of the positive thoughts on the film from early film critics. So how does Far From Home compare to Homecoming and continue the Peter Parker story after Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame? Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out!

P.S. 1) Since there are a lot of interesting things you should see pretty fresh I tried to be as vague as possible with this review. And 2) Apologies about the background noise, I had a very limited window to record this episode so unfortunately, I couldn’t record around the people moving around the house.

Anyway here’s the review:

Toy Story 4 Review

Howdy people of the internet, how is it going? So yeah after a break that took a lot longer than I expected due to a cold that took my voice away. I am back to share my thoughts on the latest film in the Toy Story series; Toy Story 4 via my podcast Film Focus.

Now I have been curious, cautious and hopeful about this film since its announcement in 2014. And Toy Story 3, one of my all-time favourite films, ended the series in such a strong way, I thought why would Pixar potentially ruin the series with another entry? It wasn’t until the full trailers came out that I got an idea of what TS4 would be like and that’s when I started to feel some hope that it could be another solid film in the series. So how was the film? Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out!

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, how is it going?  I am back with a double film review on Brightburn and Godzilla: King of the Monsters via my podcast Film Focus.

Timecodes:

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum Review

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, how is it going? So I’m back again to share my thoughts on the latest film in the John Wick series; John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum via my podcast Film Focus.

It is crazy to see how far this set of films have come, from the original surprising audiences in 2014 to the 2017 sequel which wasn’t as well-received, but I thought was really damn good (check out my review). And now you have Chapter 3 which I was always excited to see, but my hype levels didn’t kick in until around a fortnight before the film’s release and it also helped that the early word of mouth was pretty positive as well. So how was the film? Well, check out this spoiler-free review to find out!
