October 27th, 2016 by Cherry

I saw the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie aka MCU: 14 Doctor Strange. I must admit when Marvel announced they were making the film I got SO excited. I’ve been a fan of the character since I was a kid and would read the comics.

I must admit I was over the moon imagining whom they would cast as this character that I had loved as a little black girl in Iowa that scoured the comic book shop for characters of color (COC). I decided a long time ago that my Doctor wasn’t black but he wasn’t white either I always thought he was Indian or from Asian country that after his injuries decided to explore the medicine of his ancestors (who he had turned away from as he completely assimilated to American culture) so when they announced they had cast Benedict Cumberbatch I was very upset. Disappointed that once again a character that could have no SHOULD have been a man of color was instead cast with one of the whitest men on the screen. Now in his defense he’s a great actor and I’m a huge fan of Benedict. So I weakly decided to forgive Marvel for that choice since I was sure the Ancient One would be an Asian actor either someone US audiences know already like Jet Li or Daniel Dae Kim or Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa but instead they cast Tilda Swinton freaking TILDA SWINTON the whitest woman in the entire world. mind blown I got so mad that I pledged to not see the film EVER! I was done DONE with the two leads. Even after they cast Chiwetel Ejiofor I was no. But than my friends insisted we see the Suicide Squad and I saw Benedict in the cape I started to yearn for the movie. Despite my pledge to stand strong with my Asian Brothers and Sisters against the whitewashing of the first superhero film that SHOULD have been predominately Asian but I still thought I will not see the film BUT will watch it on HBO or DVD.

But happily I’m on a screening list and got to see a sneak preview of the film with a good blerd chick friend. So lucky you get a review of the film.

So I’m going to go on and say one of the things that I found strange ABOUT Dr. Strange. How the holy freck is a movie that takes place in a mythical Asian country that all of the supporting stars are either WHITE or a Black guy (notice I say GUY as in the ONE). Now they do have two supporting Asian actors one is Wong (Benedict Wong) the librarian and an actor who I can’t even find listed on IMDB <URGH>.

 

But it’s a solid MCU origin story where you get to know Dr. Strange (and yes you will call him DOCTOR) a hotshot surgeon who’s a bit of a talented douche who likes to take high profile cases that will go in his ‘win’ column so that he can keep collecting awards and money to fund a very expensive Manhattan lifestyle. All that changes when he gets in car accident in his BMW (should have sprung for the self driving) where he mangles his precious surgeon hands but no his mind . This starts him on a path to fix his hands so he can get back to his life as a world class surgeon and so be first tries Western medicine (the best money can buy) before finally deciding that he wants to figure out how a former patient of his rehabilitation nurse was able to get back on his feet (I think releasing personal medical records to prove your right is illegal but let’s just go all in and ignore that too). This path takes him half way across the world to and he begins a journey that eventually leads him to Kamar-Taj (Tibet to everyone else). Once he meets the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) or The White Ghost the story picks up the pace and careens to the final showdown with the big bad. Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) is an OK villain seduced by power but despite his being a solid actor I don’t think the part was as fleshed out as I’d have liked and it just felt like so many other villains that he didn’t make that big of an impression. But of course as a nod to diversity he gets a black bestie Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and enigmatic Asian guy Wong (Benedict Wong) who seems to a stick in the mud ‘follow the rules’ type of guy both characters seem to be all about making Dr. Strange a better white superior to all . Did I mention that they justified the Ancient One with a throwaway line of how she’s Gaelic and doesn’t talk about how she got to be the leader .

I don’t want to throw shade but Benedict get a major tan because he’s not as pearly as he normally looks!

At least we have the Black Panther … but my Asian Brothers and Sisters get bupkis with this film. I felt like a kid when I’d watch TV or movies desperately looking for someone who looked like me that were always either in the background or were the hooker or drug dealer. Things have changed but comic book movies still aren’t moving fast enough for me.

Are you celebrating 50 years of Star Trek at the Egyptian Theatre? Any fan has to head to hollywood and enjoy the beloved series with Q&A, special giveaways and saying goodbye to Nimoy. It’s been a long time since the original Star Trek films have been on the big screen and thanks to The American Cinematheque, Geek Magazine & Paramount Home Video we can celebrate

STAR TREK at 50

I’m hoping to have the opportunity to talk with Adam Nimoy about his father, Spock and his documentary.

Special Guests, Bonus Featurettes, Giveaways, New Documentary ‘FOR THE LOVE OF SPOCK,’ Booksignings, Photo Opportunity and more surprises!

September 9 – 16, 2016 at the Egyptian Theatre

 

Space … the final frontier” opened up to television viewers on September 8, 1966 with the NBC-TV premiere of “Star Trek.” Creator Gene Roddenberry had envisioned the sci-fi series as the interstellar answer to the popular Western “Wagon Train” but couldn’t have possibly imagined how long the “five-year mission” of the U.S.S. Enterprise would last – cancelled after three seasons (and an unprecedented fan letter campaign to keep it on the air), the program spawned animated and live action TV spinoffs and an ongoing series of big screen adventures.

 

In 1979, Robert Wise’s STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE kicked off a mania for TV-to-movie adaptations that has thrived ever since and spawned multiple sequels. To celebrate a half-century of “Star Trek,” we present the new documentary on star Leonard NimoyFOR THE LOVE OF SPOCK, and five of the first features following Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov across the galaxy. These films embody the ideals of sci-fi’s first franchise that have endured for 50 years; may they continue to live long and prosper for many more.

Tonight is the  Los Angeles premiere of Batman: Bad Blood (clip)!

frame-082495I am looking forward to interviewing the entire Bat “family” on the red carpet  — Jason O’Mara (Batman), Yvonne Strahovski (Batwoman), Sean Maher (Nightwing), Gaius Charles (Batwing) and Stuart Allan (Robin) — along with Travis Willingham (voice of The Heretic) and filmmakers: producer James Tucker, director Jay Oliva and character designer Phil Bourassa at the Paley Center for Media (465 North Beverly Drive) as well as seeing the screening at 7pm! I’ll post my interviews on Cherrylosangles @youtube

About Batman: Bad Blood

The mysterious disappearance of Batman (voice of Jason O’Mara), coupled with the emergence of powerful and malevolent new villains in Gotham City, force Nightwing (Maher) and Robin (Stuart Allan) to take crime-fighting into their own hands – while simultaneously searching for their missing leader. They’re not alone for long. New super heroes Batwoman (Strahovski) and Batwing (Gaius Charles) – each armed with her/his own sensibilities, physical abilities and crime-fighting tools – arrive in Gotham to assist in the cause. As this new “family” strives to find its own dynamic, chilling clues lead the group to suspect the Dark Knight may have gone over to the dark side. It’s up to the entire Bat team to uncover the truth before Gotham City falls prey to its greatest threat yet.

Produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Batman: Bad Blood will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on February 2, 2016.

I’m geeking out a bit about the new film inspired by the Hitman video game series. Of course a few of you might remember the Hitman movie that came out in 2007 starring Timothy Olyphant which I enjoyed. Look at Tim he’s a cutie even when he’s bald!

The new film has the latest clone and he’s major scary bad ass from the first look on youtube and it’s a blast. From a sexy fire engine red Audi to a sexy chick (for the guys/gals) and a bunch of clones for the rest of us. It looks like it’s going to be a live action spy video game and if it matches up to the ads I’ll be one happy fangirl! I’ve played the game a few times and it’s a fun shooter. Well designed with a story that you can easily follow rather your playing the latest or original game. Check out the link to the trailer on YouTube with a electric remix of Jimi Hendrix’s Voodoo Child and stars Homeland star Rupert Friend who’s in custody by the Homeland Security (or the police or some other gov’t agency). It immediately kicks off with a major escape sequence with the cats realizing they are the prey! 47 saunters like a BOSS in uniform and we next see him speeding down the street in a sexy red Audi that is impelled by hooks and than he fights off paratroopers. more soldiers, a helicopter crashing into a building, and him beating somebody with a plane .. a PLANE propellor/wing thing (WTF). The action in this film is off the hook crazy! Now I could have sworn that the film was coming out in February but it looks like it’s been pushed back to August. Now I wonder if it’s because they added more action scenes, thought it was too good for February and was worthy of a fall release. Well we’ll find out when it’s in theaters this fall. Are you looking forward to the newest video game inspired action movie?

 

HITMAN: AGENT 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.

In Theaters – August 28, 2015

Cast: Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Ciarán Hinds, Thomas Kretschmann

The Explosive Debut Trailer for Hitman: Agent47 is Here!
