Rapid Fire (Film) Review - Captain America: Civil War!

Image
Captain America: Civil War hit theaters and it was incredible. Regrettably I never got to write up a review so I bring you now Realm Beyond Sight's first "Rapid Fire Review" where I hit the good, the bad, and get out before the review becomes too long winded.

As noted, Captain America: Civil War was truly incredible and it hit all the notes that you could have wanted it to. This film has a solid stand alone Captain America story and feels like a Captain America film even though the larger Avengers ensemble is present. I will say that this Cap story falls just short of the greatness achieved in Captain America: The Winter Soldier though which had a large impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It sort of felt like the Bucky/Winter Soldier part of this story seemed to be shoehorned into the larger civil war story line. However, this is about the civil war and that is truly where this film shines! And boy did it shine! This was the Avengers sequel that fans were waiting fo…

See the 10 most controversial costumes in superhero films today.

Image
Let's face it. Being a costume designer on a comic film these days has to be one of the most stressful jobs out there. You know that your work is going to be picked apart detail by detail whether it is good or bad and lord help you if it is bad.

Over the last several years fans have seen some amazing costumes for comic characters as well as some "what were they thinking" ones. In Screen Rant's newest video, they take a look at ten costumes that sparked controversy among fans around the world. These characters include Batman, Harley Quinn, Green Lantern, Captain America, and more.

"In today's world, the first look at a superhero costume can be the most important part of building positive buzz - or having fans write the project off completely. The first look isn't always the final verdict, whether it's a costume that brings the comic book version to life, or changes it completely. But sometimes, the fans' doubts are proven to be a good sign - eith…

Warner Bros. UK has released an interesting new promotional video for Suicide Squad where the characters in the film are introduced as though they are members of a soccer team who are about to play in the Euro 2016 tournament. This is a very interesting idea and although as a soccer player I find this kind of neat, I am not sure how many fans out there will like it.

"Rose is “ambitious,” “quite similar” to Hermione in that she puts pressure on herself, and “just wants to do the right thing.”" In case you missed them, you can see the Potter Family photos as well.

See the Potter family cast photos from Harry Potter and The Cursed Child.

Image
The first official photo of the Potter family has been released for the upcoming British play Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. This story will pick up 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. The photo features Harry Potter, played by Jamie Parker, Ginny Potter, played by Poppy Miller, and their son Albus Severus Potter, who is being played by Sam Clemmett. The casting for Harry and Ginny are perfect.


Speaking about Jamie Parker as Harry, JK Rowling stated; "“He simply is Harry now. There’s a kind of relief in watching him, he gets it so right.”" On Poppy Miller as Ginny; "“I think a lot of people would like to have Poppy’s Ginny for a mother. Kind and cool, exactly as I imagined her.”" This is great news so far!

Rowling couldn't say much on Sam Clemmett as Albus but did offer this;
"“There’s much I could say about Sam-as-Albus, but we’d be into spoiler territory so quickly I’ll just say we couldn’t have cast better.”"

Incredible Ghostbusters fan edit trailer uses the songs Savin' the Day / It's Magic from original soundtrack.

Image
Another dedicated fan has taken a shot at updating the trailers for the new Ghostbusters film. This new trailer uses a lot of the new footage from the last trailer while using the songs "Savin' the Day" and "It's Magic" from the original Ghostbusters soundtrack. It may be the touch of nostalgia but the music does make the trailer seem to flow better. Well done!

Fan creates Psylocke's psionic sword from X-Men: Apocalypse.

Image
The Hacksmith was inspired by the new film X-Men: Apocalypse and decided to get to work in his workshop. He created a real life version (or as close as we can get at the moment) of Psylocke's psionic sword. It may be a sword on fire but the technique used to create it and the end look is great.
