Poll Reminder: VOTE on Your 3 Most Anticipated Films of 2016 (Time is Running Out!)

Captain America: Civil War, The Winter Soldier, Captain America, Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan

This is just your friendly reminder that our monthly poll only has a few days left, so get your clicking fingers over to the site’s main page at http://justkillingti.me and vote for your three most anticipated films of 2016.  If you only voted once, you can vote two more times.  The point is to pick your favorite three so we can get some diversity in the vote.  Despite that wistful notion, Captain America: Civil War has been battling Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice since we started and since Cap finally released a trailer to compete with the two we’ve had for BvS, it’s pulled into a comfortable lead.  Star Wars: Rogue One and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have also garnered a number of votes, but the polls almost always see a last minute surge of voting (no doubt because I annoyingly remind you to vote every month….multiple times…..it’s not neediness if you actually need to do it).  We’ll dub the official Killing Time Most Anticipated Film of 2016 next week, so vote whilst you may!

Site Note: Thanksgiving Movie Reviews

Today is Black Friday and, no doubt, you’ve spent it in a tryptophan-induced haze blindly purchasing things online that you have absolutely no use for (as is the American tradition).  Another such tradition is heading to the movies, and I know that we’re several reviews behind here at KT.  There’s a very good reason for that, and it is simply that this holiday is a particularly difficult one for my family and I’m spending the weekend with them.  Movies are easily one of my five favorite things on the planet, but the people we love and share them with are so much more exponentially important (granted this would be a tougher call were a new Star Wars movie coming out NOW, but family is still priority).  So, next week, I plan on seeing a ton of movies and showering you lovely nerds with reviews aplenty.  Happy holiday weekend to you all, and thank you for indulging our barn of nerditry that we run here.

Trailer Time: Zootopia Trailer #1 (2016) *Can Disney Animation Keep the Streak Alive?*

Can Walt Disney Animation continue its renaissance?  So dismally outshone by Pixar that it might as well have been dead, it looked like things were over for the House That Walt Built.  But after Tangled, Frozen and Big Hero 6, you could argue they’re operating on just as high a level (if not higher) than their Pixar brethren.  Either way, it’s great for Disney fans.

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,”


The comedy-adventure is being directed by Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph, The Simpsons) and co-directed by Jared Bush (Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero). The voice cast also includes Shakira, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Nate Torrence, Jenny Slate, Tommy Chong, Octavia Spencer, Bonnie Hunt, Don Lake, Alan Tudyk, Tommy “Tiny” Lister, Raymond Persi, Katie Lowes, Jesse Corti, and John DiMaggio.

Zootopia opens in theaters on March 4th, 2016.

Trailer Time: Now You See Me – The Second Act (2016) *Can Magic Strike Twice?*

One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, The Four Horsemen resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry, a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.

Now You See Me got mixed reviews, but, I thought it was absolutely brilliant fun.  They left the end of the first movie open for the possibility of more and more is coming in summer 2016.  The thing that stands out to me is that the female leads from the first film, Isla Fisher and Melanie Laurent, are not returning for the sequel.  Fisher was 1/4 of the Four Horsemen and her place appears to be taken by Lizzy Caplan.  It does look like Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are returning, and I hope this ends up being as much of a blast as the first.  Now You See Me: The Second Act opens June 10, 2016.

Movie Review: The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 (2015) *The Games End*

Jennifer Lawrence, Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two

Here’s really all you need to put things in perspective when it comes to how messed-up a decision it was to split Mockingjay into two films: if you combine them, the running time is only three minutes shorter than the extended cut of Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.  The decision to split the films was always a pure money-grab, and it’s hard to say if Lionsgate will end up with more from two poorly-reviewed Mockingjays or the good movie that’s buried within the 260 minutes of bloat that makes up the combined mess.  Simply put, the second part couldn’t fix the decision to split the movies in the first place, sapped the franchise of the rabid momentum it had and leaves another series with a flat ending.
