7TH Annual Monster Entertainment Awards- The Nominees

Monster Entertainment Awards 7For the first time in the history of the Monster Entertainment Awards, we will be hosting the movie side of the awards. After all, I once watched 366 movies, once a day, for 366 days in 2016. I think that is a pretty incredible accomplishment if you ask me, but with that being said, we are happy to do it here. Here we have some of your favorite categories like Movie Of The Year, Superhero Movie Of The Year, and Horror Film Of The Year to name a few, but we also have some new ones. We sadly got rid of Netflix show of the year because there is just too many of them and we also got rid of superhero show of the year because Netflix dominates. Now I want to remind you that not every single film made makes it on here because we are not the Oscars and we care for the movies that the everyday man/woman cares about. One thing that I did want to add is that we have a new category this year and it’s called The Tommy Wiseau Worst Movie Of The Year Award which of course goes to the worst film of 2017. Now I also want to remind everyone that you have until March 13TH to vote and decide who you want to win so choose wisely.

Movie Of The Week: The Lost City Of Z (2016)

lost-city-zThe challenge may be long gone and in the rear view mirror, but that doesn’t mean that us cinema fanatics cannot enjoy some movies in the meantime. While we debate doing a second challenge, I decided to do the Movie Of The Week where we view a new film and for this week we have chosen The Lost City Of Z. I have always been a fan of films that are based off of true stories and this one definitely peaked my interest, but it didn’t last very long in my local theater. The film follows a British soldier by the name of Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) who is fighting every day to restore the family name that was put in limbo by his father. While on a mapping expedition in the Amazon, Percy makes a huge discovery that there may have been a civilization in the Amazon that predates everyone. The only problem is that the journey is not an easy one and he faces many obstacles on his journey to try and discover the lost city he calls Z. The film also stars Sienna Miller (Factory Girl) as Nina Fawcett, Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) as Jack Fawcett, Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga) as Henry Costin, Edward Ashley (In The Heart Of The Sea) as Arthur Manley, Angus Macfadyen (We Bought A Zoo) as James Murray, Ian McDiarmid (Star Wars: Episode VI-Return Of The Jedi) as Sir George Goldie, and the film was directed by James Gray (We Own The Night).

lost-city-z-trailer-screen2What was surprising about the film wasn’t necessarily the story itself or the way the presented it, but the acting in my opinion is the highlight. Robert Pattinson in particular was a highlight for me as the mysterious, drunk, but loyal Mr. Costin who had accompanied Fawcett on some of the journeys. The actors did such an amazing job of conveying the torture they had been going through on the journey with the sicknesses and the lack of provisions. They did an amazing job as portraying how difficult the Amazon itself was and how things were drastically different there then where they had been. The movie isn’t perfect in any way shape or form, but it’s kind of a cool adventure to be on for the two plus hours that you’re watching. I liked Charlie Hunnam’s performance, but I think too many people stole the show on him on too many occasions. Whether it be Pattinson or Angus Macfayden who plays someone who is not what they are expected to be. I thought the sets and costumes were amazing as it felt like you were really there in the Amazon in 1912 or so. The ending of the film definitely tries it’s best to not speculate on what exactly happened to Fawcett and his son despite all the different theories that there are out there. It’s sad to read online that his other son was never interested in the truth, but rather the revenue over the speculation of his death. Check out the film for yourself, I am going to give it an B+ for a final grade.

Day 288: Clown (2014)

clown-blu-ray-cover-anchor-bay-2014-354x500I figured since it’s Halloween season and there have been a ton of weird clown sightings ll over the US that it would only be fitting to see a film with clowns. While clowns can make you laugh, they can scare the crap out of you so I chose the Eli Roth produced film Clown for today’s film. Andy Powers (In Her Shoes) plays real estate agent Kent who seems to have it all going for him. One day when a company double booked the same clown for a couple of birthday parties, Kent is forced to step in and dress like a clown after he found a costume for his sons birthday. While he was certainly the hero of the day, he can’t seem to get the costume off as it starts to change him and become a part of him. Now his family has to try and get the costume off before it’s too late. The film also stars Laura Allen (The 4400) as Meg, Peter Stormare (The Big Lebowski) as Karlsson, Christian Distefano (Paw Patrol) as Jack, Chuck Shamata (The Day After Tomorrow) as Walt, Elizabeth Whitmere (The Last Hit Man) as Denise, Robert Reynolds (Warm Bodies) as Dr. Martin Karlsson, and the film was directed by Jon Watts (Spider-Man: Homecoming).
