Blu-Ray Review: Bumblebee

Bumblebee

Synopsis:
CYBERTRON has fallen. When OPTIMUS PRIME sends BUMBLEBEE to defend Earth, his journey to become a hero begins. Charlie Watson (Hailee Steinfeld), a teenager trying to find her place in the world, discovers and repairs the battle-scarred robot, who’s disguised as a Volkswagen Beetle. As the DECEPTICONS hunt down the surviving AUTOBOTS with the help of a secret agency led by Agent Burns (John Cena), BUMBLEBEE and Charlie team up to protect the world.

Review:
Bumblebee is a prequel to the Transformer movies. It’s set in the 80s and has a great soundtrack. Besides the setting changes, this story focuses mainly on Bumblebee with a couple Decepticons in pursuit. He is helped by teenage Charlie, who lost her father years ago and is trying to find direction.

This is easily the best movie in the series since the original Transformers. This story has focus and direction. And it’s still action-packed and full of humor and heart. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, especially Charlie and her awkward friend Memo. And fan-favorite Bumblebee really gets to shine, of course. And finally someone (Agent Burns) comments on the obvious “They literally call themselves Decepticons. That doesn’t set off any red flags?” It’s kind of silly that the government would work with the Decepticons, but they believe they’ll gather advanced technology out of the deal. This is a light-hearted, exciting and just plain fun movie for all ages.

New Captain Marvel and The Skrull-Attack LEGO Set Review and Promo Clips

Captain Marvel releases on March 8th, and I’m so excited, that I’ve already asked for the day off to go see the movie on IMAX in the middle of the day.

I also ordered the Captain Marvel and The Skrull-Attack LEGO set the day it was available, direct from the website. It retails at $29.99. It’s a fun set with a cool Quinjet that shoots multiple missiles at once. And includes Captain Marvel, Fury, a Skrull, and Goose (formerly Chewie in the comics). It comes in 3 separate bags with clear instructions, and 1 page of stickers.

I only wish there were more LEGO sets for the film, as I’d buy them all!

Here’s the recent Captian Marvel featurette that just released:

And a special look that just released as well… enjoy!
