This Is Us (s02e14)

Ever since ‘This Is Us’ revealed Jack Pearson didn’t live long enough to see the 21st century, everyone has been waiting impatiently to see how exactly he died. The recent episode (s02e14), which is a Jack-death-centric one, reveals everything and it’s a painful one. 

If you haven’t watched it, go do so before SPOILERS fall on you. 

I’ll just drop something here. Remember how Kate has always blamed herself for her dad’s death? Yes. She deserves the blame and more. She did kill her dad. To find out how this happened, you should go watch the episode. ✌. Mandy Moore’s performance is killing it! Those tears. The intensity with which she brings forth Rebecca’s emotions is nothing short of beautiful.
Randal, Kevin, Toby and Miguel also make appearances, but this episode wasn’t really for them to shine. Lest I forget, Randal’s first born Tess did shine in this episode. I liked the twist even though I saw it coming (it was the same twist employed in the first episode of the show: the one that got me engrossed). #ThisIsUs #NBC #JackPearson #KatePearson

​Rinzy Reviews ‘Coco’ (2017)

Have you seen ‘Book of Life’? 📖 If your answer is ‘yes’ then you might have heard certain reports about certain similarities between it and ‘Coco’. Just a quick thing to point out though, similarities in themes doesn’t equate to same story, plot or movie. Now we can continue. 👍 

‘Coco’ is an amazing movie, wooo! ☺ Animations are rarely this good, sparingly do they get to me the way this one did. It is near-perfect, the story was wonderfully crafted, graphics’ awesome, characters’ very relatable, an overall awesome package 🎁: something nice in something light.

I think what I loved most about this movie is that Coco wasn’t the main character, but was pivotal to moving the story forward. Main-characters Hector and Miguel were well motivated to do what’s right. I loved the family tree twists.

If you’ve not watched this, I recommend it for you. 👍 Watch and tell me what you think.

Rinzy Reviews ‘Iron Man’s (2008)

As part of my conscious effort getting ready for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, I joined many other movie enthusiasts around the world getting to marathon watch every movie of the MCU, one every week, 🤗. The first on the list is, rightly, the movie that started the MCU 10 years ago , ‘Iron Man’ (2008).

I know there are people who still haven’t watched this movie so I’ll be gently with the spoilers, 😉.

‘Iron Man’ has stood the test of time: 10 years later and I found myself sincerely excited as though watching this movie for the first time. It was beautiful in many ways. Seeing Robert Downey (Tony Stark)  younger than recent memories’ provided made me excited; seeing Agent Phil Coulson trying so hard to introduce the concept of S.H.I.E.L.D. to people who never cared to listen until big bad Obadiah became an obvious threat was hilarious. Or is it the genesis of Tony and Pepper’s love story (🌶 😍 ♥) … 🤗, so many reasons to be excited. Watching it again, I could see better how much energy, time and planning went into the fabrication of the MCU and I cannot help but love Marvel some more, they’re the experts 👵 now because they did their homework and paid their dues. NB: This is not to say other Studios can’t hit it big too. 

I implore those who haven’t to join me on this wondrous adventure. Next stop is Incredible Hulk (2008).

Rinzy’s MOST ANTICIPATED MOVIES OF 2018

2017 was a very good movie year and 2018 promises to be better. With so many wonderful movies promised, a man can only hope and follow up so much. On this list, I give you my most anticipated movies of 2018.

PS: They’re in no particular order whatsoever.

1       Avengers Infinity War – Marvel’s the current juggernaut of the cinemas, everyone of their movie is an assured hit. Next year, they’ll rule again with the culmination of their great works since 2008. Have you seen the trailer? That movie will be the bomb.

2       Deadpool 2 – If you’ve seen the first one, you definitely won’t be asking why this movie is highly anticipated.

3       Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom – Chris Pratt returns for another adventure with the infamous dinosaurs of the jungle. After the first movie broke boundaries in the box-office, it’s no surprise a sequel was commissioned.

4       Solo: A Star Wars Story – Another one of the Star Wars’ solo (pun not intended) movies just like ‘Rogue one’.

5       Incredibles 2 – After 14 years, one of the world’s best animated movies will be back.

6       Fantastic Beasts: The Crime of Grindelward – Even with all the controversies following the casting of Johnny Depp as the titular Grindelward, the movie is, finally, almost here.

7       Ant man and the Wasp – Another Marvel’s baby.

8       The New Mutants – Have you seen the trailer? Horror has never looked so good; the missing ingredients has always been mutants.

9       Black Panther – This is my most anticipated movie of 2018.

10      Aquaman – My God! Have you seen ‘Justice League’? Jason Momoa was built for this. Same way he was born to bring us ‘Khal Drogo’… Ha Ha!!

11      Xmen: Dark Phoenix – many people complain about the way Fox has treated the Xmen; me, I love them.
12      Tomb Raider – Alicia Vikander looks awesome on the movie posters, I hope she lives up to it and does better than being a poster girl.

13      Ocean’s 8 – This movie has one of the most impressive casts of 2018… imagine Sarah Paulson, Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blachett and more?

14      The Nun – HORROR MOVIES are bae! ‘The Conjuring’ universe has had an impressive outing so far.

15      Maze Runner 3: The Death Cure – O’brien’s outing in this movie has been decent, I’ll definitely watch anything that has the man that brought Stiles Stilinski to life.

16      Bumbleebee – Tell me one autobot that’s as awesome as Bumblebee… now, he has his movie; all I have to do is hope it makes sense.

17      Fifty Shades Freed – I had high hopes for this franchise. Happy it’s finally ending.

18      Scarface- A remake of the 1984 classic.

19      Barbie – Yea, Babrbie is coming to life action. Why? Nothing more than to make money, I think.
20      Hellboy – Yea! He’s having a makeover.

21      Venom – Anything with Tom Hardy is a must-watch for me.
22      Charming
23      Pacific Rim 2: Uprising

Rinzy Reviews Crisis on Earth-X

SPOILER!!!
WTF! Victor Garber’s send forth could only be realized by killing off his character Martin Stein…. why?

On this note I begin my review of 2017’s Arrowverse massive crossover.

Ever since ‘The Flash’ was spun out of Arrow in 2014, the Arrowverse has continue to grow with more characters added to its ever growing list and its crossover becoming more and more ambitious. This year’s wasn’t an exception. It’s the best so far.

A lot of things happened. We had the disaster wedding of the moment, courtesy of Nazi soldier’s from Earth-X interrupting Barry and Iris. We also had them getting married at the end courtesy of John Diggle, with a spoiler, Oliver and Felicity also got married… I didn’t see that coming.

We got to see evil doppelgangers of our heroes and the return of the Reverse Flash. I think the producers have gotten tired of explaining his return, so much, that they just skipped it, on purpose, this time. Barry needs his Eobard, this we know, it’ll be easier if they just stopped killing and rewriting him. 

I enjoyed the crossover. An article from ‘Screen rant’ said it was a better DC team up than the cinema-released Justice League. Ouch!

The stakes keep getting bigger, more expensive, I really wonder what they’ll do next year.

All shows in the Arrowverse return for their mid season finales next week.

‘House Of Cards’ To Resume Production On Its Sixth And Final Season

‘House of Cards’ to resume production on its sixth and final season early next month.
Following the needs of several sexual allegations levelled against lead Kevin Spacey, he was fired and the show’s production subsequently halted.

With this letter, we can rest again knowing production will resume shortly… without Spacey of course.

Here’s the letter.

Dear Cast and Crew,

As we move into the holidays, we want to express our appreciation for all of the meaningful messages of support we have received from you and want to update all of our loyal cast and crew on our progress and where things currently stand.

We continue to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon. As we continue these discussions, we have determined together that the crew will be paid for an additional two week hiatus – beginning on November 27th and continuing through December 8th.

In addition to the writers, there will be a small contingency of office/accounting staff who will remain in the production office on a continuous basis. Our hope is that the entire crew will be able to reconvene when production resumes, but we want you to know that we will certainly understand if crew members need to find other work in the interim, which will prevent them from re-joining us. We sincerely appreciate all you have done.

Cast and other union members who are not actively working will be paid in accordance with applicable union guidelines through this period and we will be reaching out directly to your representatives to work through the details; we will get to everyone as quickly as possible and appreciate all of your patience here.

These last two months have tested and tried all of us in ways none of us could have foreseen. The one thing we have learned throughout this process is that this production is bigger than just one person and we could not be more proud to be associated with one of the most loyal and talented production cast and crews in this business.

We will provide an additional update by 12/8/17.

Thank you all.

HollyWood’s Recent Sexual Misconduct Scandals

Hollywood is at a crucial stage in its existence now. An uprising, per say, where sexual predators are the latest victims. On Oct. 5th 2017, an article published by the New York Times would start the trend by condemning Harvey Weinstein for decades of sexual predatory acts against co-workers he’d encountered over the years of him being a boss. Many people had come out to support the article’s claim, pointing accusing fingers, these and many more have led to Harvey losing practically all he’d spent his lifetime achieving. Yesterday, he world woke up to the news of another sexual predator, this time, in the person of Kevin Spacey (of the ‘House of Cards’ fame). Spacey is being accused by a certain Anthony Rapp of sexual misconducts on him as a minor, an act Lobby alleges occurred 30 years ago when he was 14 y/o and Spacey 26 y/o. As it is now, Rapp has the sympathy of many Americans as can be deduced from Twitter’s reaction since yesterday, and the latest fallout in a case that’s been described as unsettling, is the unsurprising cancellation of ‘House of Cards’ by Netflix. The streaming powerhouse and everyone associated with Spacey would want to be at a reasonable distance from him as his life and career begins to fall apart – it’s called damage control.

Funny enough, Spacey, yesterday, issued a note of apology for what and might not have happened 30 years ago, he also used the opportunity to come out to the world as gay, but I don’t think that card is working now, things are looking to get continually worse for him.

I take one thing out of this recent mess in Hollywood, whatever you do today as you climb up the ladder, make sure to watch your back that it wouldn’t be enough to soil you in the future.
