Welcome, Wonder Woman Trailer

It’s out. The second Wonder Woman trailer. It seems they’ve been able to make some pretty good trailers for the DC universe movies.  Batman v Superman had some really good trailers, but the movie turned out to be not so great. What’s going to happen with Wonder Woman? Watch this:

My initial reaction: Wow. I want to see this movie! A lot of it looks beautifully done. Some of it looks grand. It would look great on the big screen.

There have been so many superhero movies and TV series in recent years. I haven’t seen many of them. That makes me want to watch as many of them as I can.

What did you think of the trailer? And which superhero movies and TV series do you recommend? Let me know in the comments section below.

Passengers Official Trailer

It’s not often that a science fiction movie is completely unknown to me when the trailer is released. Usually, I know about it long before then. But this one happened. It’s Passenger, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. I didn’t even know it was science fiction when I saw the title. But then I saw the trailer. That looks very interesting! Have you heard of it? Take a look:

The trailer ends with a big question. What the hell is going on? This is a trailer that has me so intrigued, I feel like I need to see the movie. I want to find out what happens. What is this mystery?

Rebranding My YouTube Channel

Don’t let the name on my YouTube channel fool you, I have renamed it. Well, it’s still going to be under my name, but it’s now called Jay Dee’s Journeys. Why? Well, I wanted to give it a name other than my name. I still could fully rename the channel, and I might.

So, the meaning of my channel is quite simple. What do books, Star Trek, and Japan have in common? Journeys! In books, you journey to another world or place. In Star Trek, you journey to the stars. In Japan, well, you journey to Japan. That’s what links them together. However, the channel is going to focus on books, and I love a good fantasy novel with maps and travel.

I’ve also made a channel trailer to introduce it to newcomers. Here it is:

I have ideas for a better trailer, but that requires me to be better at making videos. I’ll learn, though. I will make better videos with better editing. But this trailer reflects what my channel is like at the moment. It gives you everything you need to know about the channel.

Let me know what you think.

The New Batman v Superman Trailer

Back when I was a kid, I watched the Superman movies religiously. I wore a cape! A Superman cape!

In 1989, I saw the Batman movie and thoroughly enjoyed Michael Keaton’s version of Batman, and Jack Nicholson’s Joker. Amazing stuff. I liked Val Kilmer’s Batman, too. But then things fell apart, and we had several mediocre to terrible Batman movies. And then came Christian Bale and his rendition, which I haven’t seen.

I did see Superman Returns, though. Not very satisfied with that one. Nor have I see Man of Steel yet, but I do know that the events in that movie lead up to this: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. I have seen the trailers and teasers. I have seen Wonder Woman. And all of this brought back memories of a huge colouring book I had of the Justice League superheroes. I was a DC Comic superhero fan, not a Marvel superhero fan (except Spider-Man).

But then, last week, a new trailer came out. And here it is:

Let me just say that I’m a kid again. The final scene in this trailer had me excited. While the characters are different than my childhood heroes and villains, seeing all three of these superheroes on screen at the same time was amazing. Everyone raves about The Avengers, but The Justice League is where my heart is.

And thank you, Ben Affleck, for not overdoing the Batman voice like Christian Bale did. You definitely have the better voice. And Jesse Eisenberg is a wild Lex Luthor. This will be entertaining.

The Martian

The first trailer for the movie The Martian is now out.  Here it is.

It’s based on a novel by the same name, a novel I really want to read. I absolutely loved Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red Mars. And now this movie comes along. I want to see it so very much. The novel by Andy Weir is highly rated on Goodreads, and is a Goodreads Choice 2014 winner. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

So, Matt Damon is the main character in this movie. Batman vs. Superman is also coming, starring Ben Affleck. These childhood friends have a couple potential blockbuster movies. Who’s going to win? In my mind, The Martian is what I want to see the most.

That Star Wars Trailer

So, lots of people are talking about some new movie coming out later this year called Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  I saw the first teaser trailer and thought, “Meh, whatever.”  So there was a Millennium Falcon in it.  There were characters I’d never seen.  Big fat hairy deal.

Well, then came the second teaser trailer, almost two minutes long.  If you haven’t seen it, here it is.

My thoughts when I watched it? Oh look, a desert with an Imperial Star Destroyer crashed on the surface.  Ooh, it’s Luke speaking.  Oh, Darth Vader’s helmet.  R2D2! And definitely Luke! A woman receiving a light saber.  Oh wait, that was Luke’s, the one he lost! And he said someone has the power of the force?  His child? Then lots of action that looks pretty.  Rey and Finn, two of the new characters.  But then, then it happens.  Millennium Falcon.  The screen went dark.  And we hear it, “Chewie.” The picture comes into focus and there’s Chewbacca with Han Solo!  “We’re home,” he said.  That was what I was waiting to see!

So, it’ll be in 3D.  But while watching the trailer, I noticed how it wasn’t as shiny and pretty as episodes I, II, and III.  It was grittier, like episodes IV, V, and VI.  That’s a very good thing! The nostalgia I felt while watching this was great.  It’s got me looking forward to this so much.

Star Wars and I have an interesting history.  The original movie was in theatres the year I was born.  I saw the movies when I was in elementary school, though.  My cousin loved the movies, had all the toys, and I just watched them.  I didn’t become a big fan.  The late 80s saw me getting into Star Trek, and I was firmly in the Star Trek camp. Fast-forward to Episode I.  I saw it in the theatre when I was in university, and was somewhat unimpressed.  Episodes II and III didn’t impress me, either.  And when Disney got the rights to the movies, I was a bit worried.  But watching this trailer has me excited.  In fact, more excited than I’ve ever been for Star Wars.

I can’t wait!
