God of War (PS4) Review

PSN synposis:

From Santa Monica Studio and creative director Cory Barlog comes a new beginning for one of gaming’s most recognizable icons. Living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest.

• Bold New Beginning — His vengeance against the Gods of Olympus years behind him, Kratos now lives as a man in the realm of Norse Gods and monsters. It is in this harsh, unforgiving world that he must fight to survive…And teach his son to do the same. This startling reimagining of God of War deconstructs the core elements that defined the series—satisfying combat breathtaking scale and a powerful narrative—and fuses them anew.
• A Second Chance — Kratos is a father again. As mentor and protector to Atreus, a son determined to earn his respect, he is forced to deal with and control the rage that has long defined him while out in a very dangerous world with his son.
• A Darker, More Elemental World — From the marble and columns of ornate Olympus to the gritty forests, mountains, and caves of Pre-Viking Norse lore, this is a distinctly new realm with its own pantheon of creatures, monsters, and gods. With an added emphasis on discovery and exploration, the world will draw players in to explore God of War’s breathtakingly threatening landscape—by far the largest in the franchise.
• Vicious, Physical Combat — With an over the shoulder free camera that brings the player closer to the action than ever before, fights in God of War mirror the pantheon of Norse creatures Kratos will face: grand, gritty, and grueling. A new main weapon and new abilities retain the defining spirit of God of War while presenting a vision of violent conflict that forges new ground in the genre.

Marvel Morbius movie teaser trailer

Image result for morbius"

Greetings Marvel fans! If you been hearing the buzz online, I got some exciting news to share with you. As we enter 2020, Marvel has some plans with movies from different companies. Disney is planning to do the solo Black Widow movie and Fox will finally release New Mutants in April of this year. Sony on the other hand is planning to expand its universe. Coming from the same company that did the MCU Spider-Man movies Homecoming and Far From Home and Venom, we have the vampire antihero Morbius. Sony released a teaser trailer showing Jared Leto as Michael Morbius as he becomes the vampire antihero. There is no official release date yet but this movie will be released in theaters in summer 2020. The movie may also be a tie-in to the MCU Spider-Man movies. Even though it’s a teaser, what do you guys think about this movie?

Venom 2 may be rated-R

If we can get a rated-R movie about Joker and Deadpool, what if we could do it with Venom. According to Cinema Blend, Venom producer Matt Tolmach made a comment that he is considering giving the sequel to 2018’s Venom the rated-R treatment. The reason being is because he saw the success to DC’s recent movie Joker which was given the rating R and it earned over a billion dollars. Here is what Tolmach said:

I mean, I think you always have to think about [it], now that that works. Having said that, our movie worked really well. Our franchise exists as it is, and I don’t think anybody is looking to just say, ‘Hey, they [did it]!’ We have a place in the world. So it isn’t like suddenly everybody’s considering what to do with the rating. … I think what Joker does is it tells you that you can succeed. For a very long time, that was the narrative. And Deadpool sort of wrestled that to the turf, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally forbidden. … So you know, I think it’s the greatest thing in the world that R-rated movies are being embraced by massive audiences. And it just means that there are more opportunities for that kind of storytelling.

With movies like Logan, Deadpool and even Joker, producer Matt Tomach and director Andy Serkis are considering making Venom 2 for a much more older audience. If you didn’t know, the first Venom was released in October 2018 with a PG-13 rating. The movie met with mixed reviews from critics and even hardcore fans. What do you think about a rated-R Venom movie?
