Manicure Mondays – How To Train Your Dragon PLUS Winner Announced!

Happy Monday, everybody!

Look at those eyes!

Look at those eyes!

As you may have gotten from our review, Kizerezik and I saw “How to Train Your Dragon 2” last week, and we both loved it. So, naturally, this week’s installment of Manicure Mondays had to feature everyone’s favourite Night Fury, Toothless!

Let’s get started with a base coat of white.

BAM.

BAM.

From there, paint your middle and ring fingers yellow from the centre of the nail to the tip, and then start to draw out your line art with a black nail polish pen.

Or you can finish the line are and brush the yellow inside of the eye if  you've got a very steady hand.

Fill in the black and clear coat.

He's looking at you. With his EYES.

Now, on to the thumb, which we’ve styled after Toothless’s tail flag. Paint the whole nail red and clear coat it once it’s dry. Fun fact: This top coat is the worst I’ve ever used!

The clear coat helps the white pen to show, and with that stupid thing, every little bit helps.

Bust out that white nail polish pen and prepare to exercise your patience because you’ll need a couple of coats to really get this to pop.

Five million coats later...

Five million coats later…

Clear coat again and you’re done!

REVIEW: “How to Train Your Dragon 2”

After watching this movie… I don’t know what to do with my life.

Don’t get me wrong; it was an excellent movie! It really was! The animation was flawless, the story was coherent and amusing and easy to follow, characterization was good, and it pretty much covered the entire spectrum of human emotion.

But…

I can't even.

I can’t even.

THIS bitch.

Josh Brolin cast as Thanos

The biggest, baddest, world-destroying-est villain has been cast for the Marvel Universe movies…

Just go on and squish that nose on up there and there may actually be a little bit of a resemblance...

MOVIE REVIEW: “Maleficent”

OR, “Something’s wrong with Sleeping Beauty, you guys…”

 

So, three of us from TFP went to a Thursday evening showing of Disney’s newest live-action film, “Maleficent,” starring Angelina Jolie in the titular role.

You could cut glass with those cheekbones.

It was… Rather different than perhaps we had been expecting.

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Let’s Talk About That Credits Scene

HO-Kay. Still not quite come down from this movie, but let’s take a second to talk about that end credits scene.

This post doesn’t contain actual spoilers for anything that happens in the body of the film (I might allude to things, but I won’t specify), but if you’d still like to be surprised by the post-credits stinger, then please revisit us when you’ve already seen the movie.

Hmmm... I actually really like this poster a lot.

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Rogue’s Deleted Scene

Seen Days of Future Past? Grateful for Anna Paquin being mostly cut from the film but still a slave to morbid curiosity and therefore curious as to what exactly her story would have been? Well, here’s a look into what that might have entailed.

I wanna say that's Iceman on the right...

I wanna say that’s Iceman on the right…

According to screenwriter Simon Kinberg:

“The biggest chunk we took out of the film from first cut to final cut was the Rogue plot. And that was the sub-plot that has now been well-publicized, but that I created, not actually to bring Rogue into the movie, though that was a wonderful consequence, but more that I wanted to have—and this was in the early script phase—I wanted a mission for old Charles and old Erik, for Magneto and Xavier to go off on a mission together.”

This would have amounted to roughly 10 additional minutes of screen time. Plus, it featured more screen time for older Professor X and Magneto, going on a solo mission of their own, a little road trip that had something to do with Rogue. Awesome, right? Except for maybe not…

“Just to see what that would look like. I mean, truly, seriously, it was like, ‘What would it be like to have Patrick and Ian on a road trip together?’ And that was kind of, you know, it got condensed as I wrote it and then when we shot it, but it was just a sub-plot. It was a perfectly good sub-plot and people will see it one day, and Anna was great in it and it was well-directed; it just didn’t serve the overall story. And it didn’t, it never did, it was created outside the core story. As a result, when you watched the movie, you were like, ‘Why are we on this detour, on a movie that already has two time periods, two types of Sentinels, 10-12 main characters, just as a lark?’ And so it ended up getting cut.”

Above, I’ve got a screengrab taken from one of the first trailers. It shows Magneto and Rogue and some dude supporting her, probably Ice Man. So, really, it looks like this is a whole damsel-saving deal and, frankly, if it features more of Rogue being useless, then I’m alright with her having been almost entirely cut from the film.

Guess we’ll have to wait for the DVD/Blu-Ray to see what exactly it all entailed. Be sure that we’re going to revisit this scene then.

See you there!

A New Trailer for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ has been released

A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy has been released:

I like this trailer even better because it gives us a bit more on the characters but also gives us more actions scenes.  Even though I will admit I was a bit disappointed to not to see more comedic moments with Chris Pratt.  At the same time it’s not a comedy but an action movie so it was nice to get an idea of the kind of action that we will be seeing.  It was nice to see more from Rocket Raccoon and Groot, this way we can actually get an idea of their personalities.    Also loving that the female is the assassin, I am a fan of a deadly female.

Here is a synopsis for the movie:

“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.”

I know I will be seeing this in theaters when it come out August 1st, who else will be checking the movie out?

 

New Trailer for ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’

A new trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction has been released.

The trailer does look good and it gives us a better look at the Dinobots.  I am a fan of Mark Wahlberg, he has had some really good action roles in the past.  I think he could be do really well in the role. This trailer gives us a better idea of why the Dinobots are in the movie.

It was stated a few months ago that this movie will be the first in a new trilogy.  This film seems to be going in a different direction and that could be a really good thing for the upcoming trilogy.

You can catch the first installment of the new Transformers trilogy in theaters on June 27th.
