CINEMAGOINGS Incredibles 2
Well, it's that time again. It feels like it's been a while since the last Cinemagoings, hasn't it. You know what else has been a while in the making? Today's film; the long-awaited sequel to what many consider to be PIXAR's best film. No pressure, right?

Story:
A business tycoon is pushing a campaign to re-legalise superheroes, and he needs Elastigirl to pull it off. This leads to Mr Incredible needing to stay at home and look after the family. But when a new threat rises, it's up to the Incredibles to save the day...once they figure out what to do with Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers.
Opinion:
Well, I'm not gonna go into comparisons or ponder whether this film is better or worse than it's predecessor. If you don't know why I'm doing this, then look at the intro again.
First things first, the animation is amazing, just like what you'd expect from PIXAR. Everything looks good and moves believably and energetically, while still

When a top-secret scientific toxin crash lands on planet earth, three nearby animals (a wolf, a crocodile & a white gorilla) are affected & grow to enormous sizes, whilst also developing monstrous instincts. When this happens, a palaeontologist & an activist team up with the government to stop the imminent threat, while those responsible for the experimental toxin have plans of their own.

It may be normal for HollyWood to adapt a video-game into a movie, but Rampage is a very unusual example. The main reason is because the source material is a very obscure Midway Arcade game from the 1980s. Because of this, a part of me was impressed that a team of writers came up with so much nonsense to make a movie out of. However, the movie is kind-of m'eh. It starts off decently with the much-needed exposition & a surprisingly effective dynamic between Dwayne Johnson & a well-textured CGI ape. But once the animals grow big & the ape gets captured, the film suddenly gets less interesting. The blandness of the characters can't save the mediocrity of the story as barely anything interesting happens. Hell, when the title-promising rampage happens, its not fun to watch because the action scenes lack stakes. In fact, the entire thing felt like one of those low-budget B-movies on the SyFy network about ridiculous monsters like Sharktopus & Lavalantula. When it comes to the special effects, the CGI is actually quite impressive on the animals. The texturing is top notch & they did work as believable creatures. But the lack of anything new to offer made them look completely generic.

overall, Rampage is a mediocre action flick that is only worth watching for small redeeming qualities like The Rock & the ape's chemistry. If you want to watch it, that's fine. Just don't expect anything terrific.

RATING:Britney Spears - Oh, bye! 
As we smoothly progress through the summer season, we nearly reach the ending point.  But it looks like there's a lot to talk about this August & I do believe that there are some noteworthy releases in this particular year. So let's stop waffling & dive right in.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
I just want to say one thing: "why?" I'm on board with the idea of a movie mocking the never ending superhero sub-genre, but why does Teen Titans Go have to headline it. It's one of the most annoying TV shows to ever hit Cartoon Network & it's main characters are a bunch of insufferable clods with the mental behaviour of the Paul brothers. So it's no surprise that I'll be skipping this one because my hatred for these characters won't save this one.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Well, this actually looks decent. I don't know if it's got themes involving stage parents, but it looks like a cute story about a father & daughter bonding over their musical passion. All it has to do is not disappoint.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
I have not seen the first Unfriended movie. To tell you the truth, I think social media horror is a stupid concept for a movie & while I'll give this film credit for capturing the authenticity of video-chat streams, I don't think I will be seeing it on the big screen. Maybe I'll consider it when it's on TV.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
The film industry has to do something extraordinary in order to make a new killer shark movie. I'm not sure if making the shark the size of Mrs O'Leary from Percy Jackson is the wisest choice, but I'll buy it for now. Unfortunately, this film looks like it'll be one of the most disposable & forgettable blockbusters of the summer. So I guess I'll be skipping this one.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Well, this looks like a serviceable action romp. I don't exactly know if it will equal good cinema, but there's a possible chance that this film could live up to its thrills. However, this hasn't become a priority for me, so it might take a while for me to give this film a watch.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
If Ready Player One wasn't enough for your YA fix, here's another book adaptation to keep the tiring sub-genre alive. From looking at the trailer, this looks like the safest & cliché you can expect from Young Adult films, so I'm not exactly excited to see this flick. But maybe it will win some people over because it does look epic enough in that sense.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
At least the dogs don't speak this time. Joking aside, this looks like some standard light-hearted fluff that might win over some people. However, I don't think it will be garbage. If anything, I just think it will be overly cheesy.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
To tell you the truth, I have not seen the first Equalizer film, so I shouldn't be the one to judge this sequel. Because of this, the film looks like a generic action romp in my eyes. But maybe that's just Sony's crappy marketing & there's a chance that the film is actually pretty good.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Well, it looks like Disney are still milking childhood nostalgia even if there are no remakes this year. While I previously brushed this film off the minute it was announced, I can happily say that I'm gladly looking forward to this movie. It looks like it will capture the charming tone that Pooh has been known for & Jim Cummings reprising the role is perfect. All it has to do now is to not disappoint.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Well, this looks outlandish & unique. The premise of different factions does sound interesting & the filmmakers look like they're delivering one hell of a spectacle. All that's left is for this film to not disappoint.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
I have not seen any of the God's Not Dead movies because Christanity propaganda doesn't speak to me & this film looks like it's fuelled by  propaganda. If it wasn't preachy with its Christianity, it might win over a large audience, but I don't see that happening with this one. If you love the other films, I'm not stopping you from giving this a chance, but don't expect me to watch it.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
At first glance, you think this is a Bond spoof, but then you realise that it's not. The idea of a woman getting mixed up in crazy shit because she found out her ex-husband is a secret agent does sound like a fun idea, but I'm just expecting a loud, annoying comedy that won't give audiences a chance to breathe. Who knows, maybe this will actually be decent......but I won't hold my breath.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Ever since this debuted at a film festival, it has become a media darling. From watching the trailer, I think I can see the potential. The idea of a black man going undercover in the KKK sounds interesting, but I do hope that it's comedy routes are well balanced with the serious subject matter. At the moment, you could say I'm cautiously optimistic.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
A movie about a song.....now I've seen everything. Joking aside, this looks like one of the most cheesiest biopics to ever happen. I can tell that it's practically begging for audiences to shed some tears, but at the same time, I'm routing for them to do so. Fans of the original song could get a kick out of this, so I do hope they won't be disappointed.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Ok, Slender Man is the perfect choice for a video-game to turn into a movie. His suspenseful presence could create some genuine goosebumps for Cinematic audiences. Unfortunately, the trailers have given me mixed reactions. The first trailer offered something trippy & outside the norm (making me excited), but the second trailer makes the film look like every other generic horror movie with cheap jump scares. I honestly don't know how the actual film is going to turn out, so maybe I'll skip this one just to be safe.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
What the hell did I just watch? Upon first glance, this looks like it has nice cinematography & some stellar production design. But since this about a man befriending a wild wolf, I hope that it's more action-driven because a relationship without dialogue would be beautiful to witness. So I guess you could say this is a wait & see.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Huh, didn't we already have the Internet horror movie? Oh...we've got another one. Ok. Anyway, despite the fact that the same gimmick as Unfriended is present, I'm actually optimistic about this one. Maybe it's because the plot of a worried father looking for her daughter looks like a real problem that some people can find relatable. All that's left is for this film to not disappoint.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Well...........this looks like...........something. Granted, I have no idea if this film is going to be brilliant or not & I am getting generic vibes, but I'm so excited to see another villainous performance from David Tennant, since he's usually so good at it.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Well, I can see why they're making a big deal out of Johnny Knoxville's Jackass lineage because this looks nuts. Granted, I don't know if this film will be good, but if you love seeing people bruise themselves & put themselves in dangerous situations, I guess I can recommend it. Just don't know if it'll be my cup of tea.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Oh look, another festival contender & I gotta say, this looks charming. It almost looks like a tribute to old black-&-white cinema & despite the fact that I have no idea if there's zero dialogue, I'm actually excited for this. All that's left is for this to not disappoint.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
We all know that the idea of being marooned on an island is nothing new thanks to films like Cast Away & The Red Turtle, but this Chinese production looks like a genuinely funny flick. It seems to rely on a package of charming actors bringing a witty script to life & it looks like it's succeeding in all fronts. If international releases were so easy to track down, I might see this in a heartbeat.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Ok, maybe Teen Titans Go To The Movies won't be the worst animated film of August. This looks like the type of garbage that would be straight-to-DVD. The jokes are crap, the animation is unimpressive & the story leaves nothing to be desired. So yeah, this will definitely be a skip.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Well, who's up for a heist? If you are, are you willing to see one in comedy form? If you are, I'm not stopping you. However, I don't know if this film looks good or looks bad. I guess it will have to be a wait-&-see because I can't make up my mind.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Oh dear. I feel so ashamed for having to start the Netflix lineup with an annoying comedy about tennagers mucking about. Granted, it might pick up when things go badly wrong, but I will not be in any hurry to watch this anytime.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Now here is a film in which I have no idea how to feel. Normally, I'm supportive of international releases just to spread publicity, but I don't know if this one will be good. All I hope for is that it has characters worth routing for because of it doesn't, we might have one hot mess on our hands.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Don't worry folks, this isn't a ripoff of the $100,000,000 man. Joking aside, this action film looks like the type of fluff that doesn't interest me

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Ok. I think there might be a chance that something charming will come to Netflix this month. Granted, it has to overcome some predictable obstacles first, but I am hoping that it turns out decent enough to win some people over.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Since I'm a big fan of E4's hit sitcom The Inbetweeners, I can gladly say that this film looks awesome. The tone looks charming, I got a lot of belly-laughs from the trailers & it looks like it could be the best feel-good comedy of the entire year. All that's left is to hope that it gets a wide release in England.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Let me get this out of the way first. I will admit that this film is clearly trying way too hard to get that sweet sweet R rating & having puppets commit the crude gags I normally hate is definitely a gimmick that might get old. But I'm actually optimistic about the end result. Maybe it's because of the puppets that I actually got a few chuckles out of the infamous Red Band trailer & it's nice to see Brian Henson (the son of the late great Jim Henson) back in the director's chair. All that's left for this film is to not disappoint.

Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Normally, I'm not a big fan of ensemble movies, but narrowing it down to three stories is an automatic win for me. As expected with most animated films from Japan, this looks like it will be one beautiful experience that would be highly deserving of award nominations. Granted, I hope using Your Name to boost the hype isn't too dangerous of a tactic, but that's not gonna stop me from getting excited for this film's inevitable release.


Untitled by JimmyTheNerd
Oh fuck yes, the awesomeness continues. Since I'm a blind MCU fan, I was always going to be excited for this Ant Man sequel & I can tell it's going to be epic. The creativity of the first film is still intact & if you've seen Avengers: Infinity War months earlier, you're pretty much going to need the light-hearted fun right about now.

so that's all I have to say about the releases of August 2018. It is quite a bunch & it is debatable if all of them are worth seeing, but I am glad that there is enough for a list of most anticipated releases, which happen to be:
Ant-Man & The Wasp
The Festival
Flavours Of Youth
The Island
Christopher Robin
Searching
The Domestics
The Happytime Murders
Anyway, join me next time when we will witness Mark Whalberg in action, an evil nun, an unusual house, adults doing an GED exam & the return of the galaxy's most lethal hunter.
Catbug
Now it's time for the Cat Of The Month & this one is part-insect. This little cutie stole the spotlight from the main characters in Pendelton Ward's Bravest Warriors & it's all thanks to a witty script & the scene-stealing performance from Sam Lovigno.

If you want to know, I have not signed up to VRV. It would be useful since Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger, but I don't know what it's like. Have any of you used it? I would like to know all the advantages & disadvantages.

Daughter Of Niji---A Digital Makeover
With all the drawings about The Resistance I have done recently, I thought that I should revisit my other creation "Daughter Of Niji." The basic start would be doodling the main characters. Megora was somewhat easy as she hardly wear shorts any revealing clothes. The only major challenge was her feet (I still think I might've screwed up with that. Claire was someone who is supposed to look as attractive as possible, in order to show off her seductive, sex-obsessed nature. The hair might be revamped in later drawings, but I think the clothes might stay the same. For the Pinkeye, I took the lazy route & drew one of them & then duplicating it.

ALSO: the rainbow background is definitely based on Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony.

Born in a life of poverty, P.T Barnum had nothing but hope. One day, after marrying his dream girl & being made redundant at work, he sets up a museum celebrating history.........which then leads to the invention of the circus. But will he win over the crowd who despise the "freaks" performing on his show?

The Greatest Showman is one of those films that divided the world immensely. Audiences seemed to be smitten by it, while professional critics hated it. I seem to fall into the latter, but I wouldn't say it is the worst. For starters, the song & dance numbers are fucking spectacular. Most of the actors have powerhouse singing voices & the choreography is mind-blowing (virtually on-par with a stage show). So what could possibly prevent me from liking this film completely. The main story didn't grab me as much as I wanted it to. The idea of a nobody creating something revolutionary is inspiring, but the execution relies on clichés, predictable beats & questionable decisions. I won't spoil anything, but some stuff (like the angle given to the Swedish Nightingale) should've been removed from the screenplay. But the film is really guilty of glossing over some interesting angles like protests & the "freaks" getting ridiculed by the public. As far as the characters are concerned, they're not interesting either. P.T Barnum is portrayed with a lot of glee by Hugh Jackman, but I sometimes struggled to route for him when he started his circus routine & the rest of the characters are just bland. Philip & Anne have decent chemistry, but their romance subplot didn't leave an outstanding impression because Barnham's plot took the centre of attention & the "freaks" should've been the main stars of the movie (& I did sympathise with them a few times), but they leave the best impressions during the musical numbers.

overall, The Greatest Showman is a mediocre musical with an iffy story & amazing musical numbers. If you want to watch it, I will allow you to & if you liked it, that's fine with me. But I do feel that the best musicals are the ones that can completely get me invested 100%. The talking scenes are just as important as the singing bits.

When a top-secret scientific toxin crash lands on planet earth, three nearby animals (a wolf, a crocodile & a white gorilla) are affected & grow to enormous sizes, whilst also developing monstrous instincts.
