The Movie Paradise Nerd Round-Up: October 21st

Image
Welcome to this week's The Movie Paradise Nerd Round-Up. Essentially what we do here is we take a look at all things nerdy. We break down everything in the world of nerdom, ranging from superheroes to Star Wars and every other geeky thing in between, and analyse the smaller bits of news that weren't big enough stories to necessarily warrant an entire article, but are still significant and important. Perhaps it's casting news, a contract detail, a set image, or something else that's more on the minor side, but is still definitely worth checking out and talking about. This is a time and place for all of us unabashed nerds to come together and talk about the things that we love so much in the movie-sphere. So, without further ado, let's get started with this week's Nerd Round-Up. 

It is being reported that X-Force will be filming at some point next year. We've been hearing about this movie for a while now, and the last thing to come out was that The Cabin in …

Battle of the Sexes SPOILER-FREE Review

Image
With Battle of the Sexes, you have Oscar winner Emma Stone and Oscar nominee Steve Carell, which is exciting to think about in of itself. We saw them before on screen in Crazy, Stupid, Love, but this film will have them together in an entirely new context. The film explores a famous tennis match in the early 70's orchestrated to have the "man's man" go up against the feminist. This wasn't just about tennis; it was about showmanship, and more importantly, it was about furthering women's equality in society. Other than the story, what drew me in from the trailers was the performances. This looked like a perfect role for Steve Carell; he could incorporate a lot of his comedic sensibilities, while also adding the dramatic flare that he's been developing over the past few years. And this looked like a completely transformative role for Emma Stone, who I'll see in anything after what she did with La La Land. With a compelling story and great actors, I went…

Star Wars- Han Solo Anthology Film Now Has a Title

Image
Even before the director troubles, I have never been overly excited for a Han Solo spin-off film. I think the character works best with a mysterious past, and I don't really need to know more about him. He's fine just the way he is. That being said, I like the talent they've brought on. I think Alden Ehrenreich is one of the best people you could have gotten to step into Harrison Ford's shoes. Not only is there a physical similarity, but I think Ehrenreich will be able to pull off the iconic gruffness excellently. You also have Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, which I am very excited to see on screen. Included in the supporting cast is Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Paul Bettany, who are all great actors. So they do have a good team working on it; I'm just not on board with the concept. Then Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who were part of the reason why I was excited for the film, were fired, and Ron Howard came on the finish the job. That shook my faith in th…

Black Panther- Trailer 2

Image
Ever since he first popped up in Captain America: Civil War, I have been excited to see Chadwick Boseman in his own standalone Black Panther movie. He was so well realized in that film, that it only made me want to learn more about him. And with the talent brought onto Black Panther, how could you not be excited? You have Creed's Ryan Coogler directing, and with Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Angela Basset, Daniel Kaluuya, and Phylicia Rashad rounding out the cast, this is going to be one hell of a film! We had a trailer drop a few months back, and I liked it a lot. The production and costume design looked phenomenal, as did the action choreography. It was a really good trailer, and I enjoyed it. But my biggest criticism was that most of the CGI wasn't finished, which is expected for a movie that was still months and months and months away from being released. And with the movie's February release date, and Thor: Ragna…
