My picks for the battles fought in this episode of Screen Junkies’ Movie Fights!

ROUND 1 – Pitch Marvel’s The Avengers if it was cast in the 1990s

“Captain America: Brad Pitt
Iron Man: George Clooney
Thor: Dolph Lundgren
Bruce Banner/Hulk: Tom Hanks
Black Widow: Uma Thurman
Hawkeye: Gary Sinise
Nick Fury: Why not just stick with Samuel L. Jackson?

Daredevil: Edward Norton
Spiderman: Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Ant-Man: Tim Roth
Wasp: Gillian Anderson
Black Panther: Don Cheadle
Falcon: Will Smith
Captain Marvel: Jennifer Aniston

A Review of Triple 9 (2016)

“Out here, there is no good and there is no bad. To survive out here, you’ve got to out monster the monster.”

Triple 9 is part Departed, part Heat, part David Ayer and part Payday with a hint of The Town.

A tale of robberies and dirty cops, Triple 9 is an extremely audacious film.

Your Fight – The Getaway

Welcome to the first in a new series titled Your Fight in which you debate and role play how your character would achieve the given objective in the comments below!

To play, just read the scenario and comment below!

The Scenario:

Inspired by Triple 9.

A bank heist, almost successful. In the process of getting away, you hit another car, totalling your own. You and your crew get out of the vehicle, with the dufflebag of money still in the back.

It’s midday, hot and busy. You’re on a highway exit. Sirens can already be heard a few blocks away.

The Objective: Get away from the cops with as much money as possible.

SJMF: My Picks – Who Should Join Black Panther?

My picks for the battles fought in this episode of Screen Junkies’ Movie Fights!

ROUND 1 – What is the best horror sequel ever?

The question was with respect to, and now that I’ve seen it, my answer is The Conjuring 2.

ROUND 2 – What Marvel character do you most want to show up in “Black Panther”?

Black Widow. Having her thrown around the MCU makes her like glue. She had great chemistry with Chadwick Boseman.


Also I don’t think she should have a standalone film- learning about her in other peoples tales gives the movies more depth.

E3 2016: Sony

Now that is an epic opening, to match their epic stage.

God of War 4 has a Skyrim feel to it. The applause on Kratos’s reveal was the loudest I’ve heard yet at E3 2016. The Norse re-imagining is fresh and it’s the most beautiful game I’ve seen this generation. The emotion was well written meaning overall we could be looking at a GOTY.

Daysgone had a neat enough CG trailer. So is it a open world RPG or a linear TPS? From the demo we see a good action horror hybrid. The zombie count was impressively high.

The Last Guardian is a myth come true. I’m happy to play anything tied to the amazing Shadow of the Colossus.
