Disney streaming service Disney+ will begin in November

Like already mentioned in the title above, Disney announced that their upcoming streaming service Disney+ will begin on November 12th. So if you are a Disney fan who loves Disney movies like cartoon classics, live action, Marvel or Star Wars, you can finally stream your favorite shows and movies in this service. According to the official site, Disney+ will have a monthly price of $6.99. Like other services such as Netflix and Hulu, the service will be available for mobile and TV devices. You will be able to watch shows/movies such as from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

According to the site, members will have access to exclusive TV shows such as live action series on the Marvel characters like Loki, Bucky and Falcon and even What if stories focusing on Marvel characters. Fox will also be allowing the cartoon series The Simpsons in Disney+. Star Wars is planning on a live action series called the Mandalorian and a new season of Star Wars: Clone Wars.

How do you feel about this news? I mentioned this a while back that once Disney starts this streaming service, this means Disney will also remove Disney content from Netflix in this year. This means that Marvel movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther will no longer be in Netflix and Star Wars movies and TV shows will be gone.

Hey everyone. This is a short post but I am here to show off some gifts I got from my birthday from March. The first person to give me a gift was my friend Allison and she got me an Avengers Infinity War poster and a Pop Funko figure of Kid Goku from Dragon Ball on his nimbus.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 movie will use Gunn’s script

Good news for Guardians of the Galaxy fans! According to IGN, the “halted” movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will indeed be using James Gunn’s script. In a interview with Star Lord actor Chris Pratt with MTV, Pratt commented that they plan to do the movie according to James Gunn. He also mentioned that he still cares about him and he believes it’s important for the team to stick together like the Guardians and get the job done.

However, it’s still unknown to who will direct the movie.

If you don’t know why Disney fired James Gunn, Disney found James Gun’s tweets and deemed them inappropriate due to not being civil and polite. In results, Disney fired James Gunn and this caused the movie to be put on pause on production. James Gunn is currently working with Warner Bros and plans to do a Suicide Squad movie in 2021.

Venom Walmart Exclusive DVD combo unbox

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another fun post from yours truly. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I mentioned a while back that I went to see Venom on October of 2018. It was a fun movie to watch and I like this Venom better than the one from Spider-Man 3. When I heard of news of this movie was ready to preorder for the Christmas season, I quickly placed an order from Walmart. For $30, Walmart was selling an exclusive copy which contains the movie Venom for DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital and even an action figure. The Twitter account for Venom even made a fun 90s video commercial promoting the action figure.

Now that I got this, let me show off some pictures!

The box set for the movie is pretty big, but the action figure itself is quite small. The box is usual cardboard and inside the Blu-Ray case which has the two discs for DVD and Blu-Ray and a redeem code for the digital. The Actio figure is small which is the average size of an action figure. Overall, I say it’s a good deal if you want to make use of your money. I will probably do a Venom movie review in the future. For $30, you get all the movie formats along with a nifty figure that is not Pop Funko figure. Walmart does an excellent job on exclusives.

Friday Funny 187: Excelsior

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back everyone! This is Matthew from Matt-in-the-Hat and back for another fun filled post filled with positive vibes and funny memes. Oh boy, what a week we have gone through. I hope everyone is doing okay and especially those who are dealing with those deadly campfires. I pray that the fires will officially be gone and I pray for the people suffering over there. Autumn can be a deadly season for fire seasons since it’s a day where wind picks up and trees are dropping dead leaves; it’s a perfect catalyst for starting a wildfire. Some of you guys already know this, but here is a refresher, Marvel comics creator Stan Lee died on November 12 this Monday, a day after Veterans Day. This legendary man started Marvel and even teamed up with amazing artists like Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby and made heroes like the Avengers, Spider-Man, Black Panther and X-Men. He’s also well-known for making cameo appearances in Marvel movies. Doesn’t matter what character plays as, he gets to be in a superhero movie; he could be the mailman, bus driver or just a guy living in New York and he has the chance to experience seeing a superhero in action. I pray for his friends and family and I am proud to be a fan of him. Whether than mourning what is gone, we should be thankful and happy that he left a legacy. This man made our heroes and created a world where heroes exist. Stan Lee is the greatest Marvel hero and I hope one day, I can be like those heroes and make a difference. Besides this news, we also got some interesting movie teaser trailers like the first time ever live action Pokemon movie Detective Pikachu. Detective Pikachu will be voiced by Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds and he will be helping a young man find his dad in world where real Pokemon and humans coexist. Another teaser we get is Toy Story 4. There’s not much but seeing some funny videos, but I hear Toy Story 4 is going to be another emotional roller coaster than Toy Story 3.

Let’s start this Friday and prepare for Thanksgiving next week!

As a way to remember Stan Lee and his legacy, here are some tribute videos I found online.

Little known fact, X-Men: Apocalypse had Stan Lee and his wife Joan Lee as cameos.

Excelsior my friends!

Sad News: Marvel creator Stan Lee dies

Stan Lee, the man that started the Marvel comics and created heroes like Spider-Man, Avengers and the X-Men with Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, has passed away today. Stan Lee died in the age of 95 of this year. Stan Lee created many beloved heroes and even made iconic villains. Stan Lee is also known as the greatest cameo actor who always appeared in the Marvel movies, TV shows and in video games.

I wished I could have met Stan Lee. Stan Lee is my hero and I want to thank him for making these awesome heroes. My first ever Marvel hero I looked up to was Spider-Man. Stan Lee is a remarkable man who is truly respected by his fans. I hope he is now resting peace with his wife Joan Lee up in Heaven.

PG-13 Deadpool movie has new title! More than a Christmas cash grab flick?

Hey fans, I got some Marvel news for this upcoming December. The rude and crude merc Deadpool is returning to theaters with a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 this December 12th. This new cut version of Deadpool 2 will have a new title fitting for this Christmas season and it will be called “Once Upon a Deadpool.” According to the news, Fred Savage, who is well known for being in “The Princess Bride“, will be involved and will be part of the Deadpool group. According to Ryan Reynolds, actor of Deadpool and Wade Wilson, this PG-13 version movie will be more than just a cash grab and it will be a benefit. He commented that for every ticket purchase, the money will be donated for charity. If you don’t remember, the charity is called F*ck Cancer, but due to the PG-13 movie, it will be called Fudge Cancer. If you want to see Deadpool 2 in a “appropriate rating” and help out for others, go pay and see this new version movie.

Netflix Iron Fist TV series ends on season 2

Marvel may be the biggest franchise in the media when in comes to movies, TV series and comic books, even the most powerful company has a weakness.

I found this news yesterday in a tweet from IGN stating that the Netflix exclusive Marvel series Iron Fist will be canceled.

According to the news, Netflix officially released the second season of Iron Fist and unfortunately, due to the ratings, Netflix will end the series. With this news however, they commented that the character Iron Fist could still be used in other Marvel Netflix series. However it is possible that Netflix could still use Iron Fist in potential team ups or series like Heroes for Hire where Iron Fist teams up with Power Man/Luke Cage or even Daughters of the Dragon with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing.

Did you like Iron Fist or disliked it? I haven’t seen this series yet, but I plan to watch it after I get done with season 1 of Daredevil.

 

The movies I seen in spring and summer 2018

https://siriuswrites.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/ca2.gif?w=500

Since we are reaching the end of summer, it’s time to prepare for the last two seasons of 2018: fall and winter. With fall coming in, I had a good time with spring and summer. Spring time for me was good because not only I got a job which gives me good pay and a friendly environment, but this is around the time I started to watch a lot movies in theaters. Summer may have been intense in my job, but it was a good time to sit down and have of a bucket of popcorn and watch a movie with the AC in theaters. 2018 has been a great year to watch some movies and it feels like every year it’s going to be even better. Today I am going to be sharing you the movies I have seen in the spring and summer season. Funny how can I keep track of the movie seasons and not anime seasons.

Marvel Avengers: Infinity War (April 27th)

If you are a Marvel fan, you probably already expected this movie to be a hit even after the first weekend. 10 years of building up to this point, Disney and Marvel did the impossible and made the biggest crossover movie. What started off with the first Avengers movie and now in 2018, we have the Avengers teaming up with Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy and even the high selling hero and movie character Black Panther. This movie also placed the spotlight on the anticipated villain Thanos and demonstrated his monstrous power. I really love this movie and I saw this movie right after day one of my job on May 4th; the original release date before it got moved up.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25th)

Star Wars is very popular in sci-fi genre and it’s dedicated to the fans. Ever since Disney bought Star Wars, Disney has been dishing out everything that has to do with Star Wars. From the video games, TV series, comics, Disney will do anything make money of Star Wars. Besides the main story movies like Episodes 7 and 8, they also squeeze in spinoff movies such as Rogue One. Their recent spinoff movie focused on the young Han Solo and how he met inconic characters like Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca. This movie was different for sure, but in a way, it was fun to watch. I like seeing Han get sassy and try to outsmart his enemies. However, based on reports and news, this movie sadly fell after opening weekend and people wanted to focus on the Episode movies. In results, Disney decided to take a break of spinoff films and are now working on the last movie Episode 9 until someone else decides to make a new trilogy outside the Skywalker story.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6th)

After going through Infinity War, I wanted to take a break from the pain and have a good laugh. Taking place after Captain America: Civil War, Scott is under arrest and doing whatever it takes to kill boredom. When Hank Prym and Hope gets curious of the Quantaum Realm, they decide to make a goal to visit this tiny world in hopes to finding Hank’s wife who disappeared. Scott decides to help him, but this also attracts a villain who goes by Ghost who can phase through walls with technology. In short, she has some quantum powers and she’s seeking cure for this powers. Scott is going to have to shrink and enlarge himself if he wants to not only help Hank and Hope, but also try not to violate his house arrest. This movie also ties into Infinity War as well. I really enjoyed this movie for the humor. My family enjoyed it and we were able to forget the pain left from Infinity War… for a moment. I can’t wait for Ant-Man to show up in the next Avengers movie.

Incredibles 2 (June 15th)

It took about 14 years and we finally got the long awaited sequel to Pixar’s superhero family movie. Brad Bird returns to create another masterpiece and unites the voices of the heroes in this sequel. Taking place right after the first movie, the movie focuses on Elasticgirl (wife of Mr. Incredible) and shows off the awesome hero skills and prove that the world is ready to accept heroes. While the wife is busy, Bob is a stay home dad who has to take care of the kids and their issues like Violet’s boyfriend problem, Dash’s math questions and discovering Jack-Jack’s powers. This movie was so cool and seeing this really gives me the same vibes when I watched the first movie for the first time. This movie was so good that it came back in theaters in the Labor Day weekend.

Christopher Robin (August 3rd)

This movie was a guilty pleasure and the reason why I watched this movie because of nostalgia. If you are familiar with movie Hook with Robin Williams, you might know the central theme. Disney creates a live-action moving depicting an adult Christopher Robin who has forgotten his childhood friends Pooh and the rest of the gang in 100 Acre Woods. After going through life, Christopher has forgotten to have fun and now focuses only on work and succeeding life. It’s not until Pooh shows up to him and asks for help after losing his friends. I will admit, I did cry  while watching this movie. What got me was that the voice of Pooh was done by none other than Jim Cummings and hearing Pooh care about Christopher for years really hit me. It taught me that no matter how old you get, you should never lose your childhood. I also fell in love with the song used for one of the trailers online. The song is called One Foot played by Walk the Moon.

What kind of movies did see in these past months?
