Rinzy Reviews Films: The Most Exciting Films To Look Out For This Month

Hello! Welcome to my small corner here, where we’ll be talking about your favorite foreign and local films (movies and TV shows) as they affect the blogosphere. My name is Rinzy and I welcome you to join me on this ride as we have a wonderful time.

Today’s the first Friday in November and I’m so excited, two of the most anticipated new movies of this year 2017 will be available in cinemas this month, starting today, with ‘Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok’ leading the way.

Thor: Ragnarok

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is the third installment in the solo outing of the Asgardian god. Directed by Taika Waititi, this movie that completes the MCU’s Thor trilogy and takes a more colorful approach, different from the two installments before it.

Judging by critics’ early reviews, Thor: Ragnarok is a hit for Marvel, the brighter colors and infusion of greater amount of comedy sets it apart from its predecessors, not to also talk about the addition of everyone’s favorite green guy –these give credence to the new direction the Thor franchise has taken, it’s a welcome development.

Not to forget, Thor: Ragnarok has some major implications for the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) moving forward, as the MCU approaches its last days heading into the ‘Infinity War’ scheduled for a release in 2018, Thor: Ragnarok will provide useful information for we the viewers ahead of the massive team up. I really can’t wait to watch this movie. I think I should do so tomorrow.

Justice League

The second big thing to hit the cinema this month is none other than a movie from Marvel’s biggest rival since the early days of its comic book publications, the DCEU’s answer to the MCU’s Avenger (2012) – Justice League, to be premiered come November 17.

This movie is the first ensemble movie by the relatively new DCEU (DC Extended Universe) that hasn’t had much critical success like its counterpart, asides from Wonder Woman (2017), no other movie in the DCEU has achieved universal appeal and praise [I don’t know if you still remember Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)?] This kind of record puts so much pressure on Justice League to perform very well, the future of the DCEU might as well be said to depend on it.

Personally, I’m pumped up for this movie for many reasons, I want to see Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck again in action as Wonder Woman and Batman respectively; I definitely need to see human demigod Jason Momoa in his Aquaman debut, he’s been the star of every trailer and cover art I’ve seen.

Many might by expecting me to mention Ezra Millar’s Flash, but I won’t, The CW’s direction with The Flash TV show has caused me fatigue with the character, this means that Justice League has to make Barry Allen/ The Flash more appealing for me to be invested in his solo movie ‘Flashpoint’ scheduled for 2020.

Enough of movies, let’s talk November TV shows. The two shows expected to shake the internet this month, fortunately or unfortunately, are staples of Marvel (the MCU), and they are – ‘Marvel’s The Punisher’ and ‘Marvel’s Runaways’. These shows, which will have every episode in their debut seasons available to be binge-watched on their respective streaming networks –Netflix and Hulu– are conscious efforts of The MCU to continue expanding on TV. The MCU domination of TV started in 2013 with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the American TV station ‘ABC’ and has continued to expand ever since.

Marvel’s The Punisher

‘The Punisher’ is expected on November 17, same day as the theatrical release of Justice League, and as I said before, every one of its 13 episodes will be available on Netflix for instant streaming.

For those conversant with the MCU, you’ll remember that The Punisher (played by Jon Bernthal of ‘The Walking Dead’ fame) was in the second season of Daredevil (2015 – till date), the character resonated so well with the masses due to the way Bernthal portrayed him that he was given a solo outing that’ll give more depth to his backstory, letting, we, the viewers know what makes The Punisher tick.

Those conversant with the character already know to expect plenty violence, gore and maiming will be the order of the day, as they are trademarks of The Punisher; the show is definitely not intended for children.

Marvel’s Runaways

Runaways

Unlike its sibling, ‘Marvel’s Runaways’ will be taking so many different approaches. First off, it’s release will be through another streaming site in ‘Hulu’ and the story is focused on the central theme of family. A brief synopsis describes it as a story that unfolds when a group of teenagers with powers find out that their parents are villains, and most do everything within the reach of their superhuman powers to foil their plan. This sounds like a show the family can enjoy together to me.

Be thou as it may, comic books inspired films are gaining more grounds as time goes by; I don’t think they’ll be a greater time to be a comic book fan other than now.

‘Men In Black’ Spinoff In The Works For A 2019 Release

One of the craziest franchises to come out of this millennium, Men In Black, hope to continue, though this time without Agents K and J made popular by stars, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. 

Will smith in MIB

Sony is prioritizing this spinoff, hoping to ride on the existence love of the franchise/universe. The studio has suffered so much loss in recent time from almost all their properties, including the Spiderman movies before Homecoming, hence the need to fall back on something that works. The new MIB movie, which hopefully will lead to a franchise of its own, will focus on the MIB organization on a global scale and not just in the US.

The movie is expected in summer 2019.

Fifty Shades Freed Teaser Trailer


E.L. James romantic books turned into hit BDSM movies is here with the teaser trailer for the last entry into the Fifty Shades trilogy.

Watch the trailer below.

It’s a teaser trailer, with the full trailer expected for later in the year. 

I’ll numerate few things my eyes caught:

1. Anna becomes Mrs. Grey.

I’m not really surprised at this, it’s been a long time coming. Anna finally says, ‘I do,’ to the man who gives who what she’ll never have with another man. Big ups to their BDSM union.

2.  The trailer has plenty of the 50 shades magic that made the franchise popular.

 This is a good thing, because, what’s a Fifty Shades story without some steamy BDSM scene? Fifty Shades Freed will definitely deliver in that aspect.

3. Anna finds a gun.

I use this phrase in the hope that it means Anna discovers more sides (secrets) to Christian Grey that she can’t deal with. Though she literarily finds a gun and fires it, let’s hope no one gets hurt.

This teaser trailer stirs up lots of discussions on this topic. I’m already excited. Fifty Shades Freed is expected Valentine’s day 2018. Let me know what you think in the comment box below.

Movie Trailer: Flatliners

As a big fan of Nina Dobrev from her work on The Vampire Diaries, I was so excited to see a trailer on YouTube bearing her name. Flatliners is a must watch for me, and I think you’ll love it too. Asides the excitement of having Nina on it, it bears credence to two genres I truly love: SciFi and Horror. Keep a date with it, September 2017.

Movie Trailer – Thor: Ragnarok

Another marvel flick is here!

This trailer is AWESOME!!!

There’s the Hulk, plenty of destruction (including Mjonir). There’s Loki! There’s plenty forms of magic… This movie is going to be magical. The trailer shows more light and optimism than there was in Thor: The Dark World. Suffice it to say they’ve learnt their lesson.

November should arrive ASAP!
