Video: You Know What's A Good Movie? The Departed

In case you missed it, we've been running a six degrees of separation with our reviews for older movies.  For example, our last movie review was for the 1989 classic, Batman.  And today you get a chance to see my review for The Departed.

The connection between the two films, is the legendary Jack Nicholson.  Check out my video below and let me know what you think of The Departed.  Has it stood the test of time for you?  Let me know!  And you can always find me on Twitter.  Thanks!

Justice League Trailer and Reaction Video

The Justice League trailer is finally here!  Not a teaser, not Comic Con footage, but a real, full length trailer!  The movie is of course directed by Zack Snyder and stars a slew of Hollywood A-listers.  You'll have an opportunity to see the trailer down below.  But first, check out my initial reaction to it.

My initial thought is that DC and Warner Brothers have learned from their mistakes and lightened up the tone... significantly.  Thank GOD!  Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad were critically panned and fans of the genre were left disappointed.  

I like how all the heroes get ample screen time.  That's going to be critical in this film.  This point was something that I loved about the 2012 blockbuster hit, The Avengers.  

And speaking of the Avengers, it's going to be difficult to watch this movie WITHOUT comparing it to its Marvel counterpart.  Watching this trailer, and seeing the swarms of Parademons descend on our heroes, was very much reminiscent of the Chitauri in the Avengers.  

And can we talk about Aquaman for a second?  I firmly believe he is going to be the breakout character of this film.  They gave him a sense of humor and a general sense of bad ass, we haven't seen before with this character.

And lastly are all the iconic moments in the trailer.  Wonder Woman dropping down to lead Aquaman and Cybord.  The Flash using his speed to beat up bad guys.  Commissioner Gordon working with the Justice League.  Or how about Aquaman riding ontop of the freaking Batmobile, with Batman driving him into a set of Parademons!?

Be sure to leave us a comment and subscribe to the YouTube channel so we can chat about the trailer!  What did you think of the trailer?  You as excited as I am for this new Justice League film?  

Kong: Skull Island video review

I loved Kong: Skull Island!  It's a ton of fun.  Very little character development, and story telling; but it's entertaining enough to overcome all of that!

Beauty and the Beast video review

Another year, and another Disney remake has landed.  This time?  Beauty and the Beast.  This is an almost direct adaptation to the 1991 animated film, that was the first ever to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.  Do you think the movie was worth remaking?  Did it live up to its predecessor?  

Rather than just tell you about it on this blog post, check it out in the video below.  Let us know what you thought of the film.  And thanks for watching, everyone!

Logan video review

Welcome back to the AtD Movie Blog!  Well, it's no surprise that this weekend, one of the most anticipated films of the year is being released.  Logan.  This is Hugh Jackman's final film of the X-Men franchise's spin-off; the legendary character of Logan/Wolverine.  The film is directed by James Mangold, who also directed the previously released, The Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman gives an incredible performance, in easily one of the best superhero films ever made. Logan is different, and in so many great ways.  The production design is perfect, and takes us to a dark and dirty future.  The performance by Patrick Stewart, Professor X, is remarkable.  And don't forget about little Dafne Keen.  She is the little girl featured in all the trailers leading up to the release of the film.  

Rather than just tell you about it on this blog post, check it out in the video below.  Let us know what you thought of the film.  And thanks for watching, everyone!
