Holy crap, this movie comes out in ONLY TWO MORE MONTHS?!?! AND Logan comes out THIS FRIDAY?!? AND Power Rangers in THREE WEEKS?!? AND Ghost in the Shell THE WEEK AFTER?!? Jeezus! Anyway, last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Chris Pratt stopped by to introduce a tease trailer — for the actual, full-length second trailer — for the upcoming theatrical addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and sequel to the surprise summer hit of 2014), Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. Once again, the universe needs saving and there’s no one more suited to the job than Marvel’s ragtag group of misfits.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directed by James Gunn, hits theaters on May 5.
Groundhog Day is an interesting and unique movies that somehow has the ability to balance the weight of its central premise — which is essentially time-travel via the constant repetition of a single day — while still showcasing excellent character development and laughs. To be honest, it definitely helps with Bill Murray’s performance as weatherman Phil Connors, and you gain an appreciation for how well the detailed replication of that same, single day — including the people in the background of each-and-every scene, and Connors’ response to the situation, ranging from confusion to frustration, to arrogance, to depression, to benevolence to more — but that’s often only noticed if you’ve repeatedly watched the film over-and-over again. So today, The PractitioNERD wishes to give you this wonderful present on this Groundhog Day in the year of our Lord twenty-seventeen, and now you can take in the film’s central premise with this YouTube video, titled “Groundhog Day – Every Day in One Day.” Also, go watch Groundhog Day.
Aside from the frequent looks into the life of architect Ted Moseby from the TV series “How I Met Your Mother,” the architecture field hasn’t quite been a target for satire in the entertainment space. That brings me to “The Architect“, a new film directed by Jonathan Parker that brings forth the drama and comedy of the profession. The film features a humorous — yet somewhat believable in some cases — satire of architects, with character of the egocentric, self-centered and grandiose architect Miles Moss, portrayed by James Frain, who is working with a couple who wants him to design their dream home. Well golly-gee-whiz; what could POSSIBLY go wrong?!? Continue reading Watch the Architecture Profession take a Satirical Turn in “The Architect”…
The newest trailer for DC’s Wonder Woman stand-alone film puts more of Wonder Woman’s (Gal Gadot) fighting capabilities on display, and shows a hint of a modern-set framing device to the film’s core World War I-era story. Essentially, the film is working as both a prequel/origin story for the character, as well as a follow-up to her silver-screen debut appearance in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — note: watch ONLY the Ultimate Edition/Director’s Cut of that movie; the Theatrical Version does NOT exist… #ShortRantOver
Anyway, Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, arrives in theaters on June 2nd 2017.
There are three thing I hate hearing about gamers from people who don’t play video games, because THEY know what they’re talking about, right? Anyway, here they are
1) Video games are made just for little kids.
2) The only people who play video games have no job, no drive, and no lives.
3) Girls don’t know anything/don’t play/are unable to play video game. Yes. I have actually heard that one. MORE than once. Continue reading Documentary ‘She Got Game’ Focuses on Strengths of Women in the Gaming World
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present you the first trailer for the upcoming ‘Lupin the Third’ live-action film. While the music in this trailer is pretty dramatic, which is a pretty strange for a Lupin film adaptation (considering the awesome, AWESOME source material), you will get to see the entire cast of the film, as well as the iconic Fiat 500. ‘Lupin The Third’ is scheduled to hit Japanese theaters on August 30, 2014.

Remember when practically ALL OF THE HYPE surrounding the Oculus Rift was about implementing it with virtual reality video games? Well, while that’s still a thing (as shown with many test gaming applications), there have been strides of virtual reality video…like cinema…that you watch…WITHOUT the bother of gaming at all. While it’s still unclear HOW films will be made for the Oculus VR hardware, there now exists an interactive trailer from Condition One (where a friend of The PractitioNERD, Chris Wheeler, is employed as the Chief Technology Officer; I asked him about the Oculus Rift hardware HERE and HERE) that provides the first real preview of what could be achieved with the virtual reality headsets.
