Breaking News


Well DC has FINALLY released the second Batman V Superman Trailer and it's completely BADASS!  Chock full of action and we finally get to see Wonder Woman in action. Also we finally see the motivation for their battle against each other. We see the climatic battle between Zor-El and Superman from the 1st battle but from Bruce Wayne's point of view.

DC is still light years behind Marvel, but with this trailer, the anticipation grows and hopefully Zack Snyder doesn't make Batman suck. A word of advice, just look at the fluidity of Batman's fighting style in Batman: Arkham Knight. That's what the fans want. Just my opinion though. What do you think of the trailer. Let me know.

Avengers/Spider-Man Deal Reached

The rumor of the Spider-Man franchise hanging in Limbo is now over. Sony Pictures and Marvel has reached a historic deal unifying the Marvel universe with its most popular heroes. Not to throw any shade on DC but they are now waaaaay behind on the super hero bandwagon. The only thing they can do to top this is.....

Nothing. Not a damn thing.  But, that's my opinion. Do you think I'm wrong? 

UPDATE: February 11, 2015

I just got wind that Andrew Garfield, which to me is the Christopher Reeves of the Spider-Man universe is going to be replaced. And to top it off, put Spider-Man, yet again in High School and probably have yet another stupid origin of how he came to be.

This is the worst decision ever to come from Marvel and heres why:

Marvel and the rest of the corporate studios believes movie goers are dumb-asses. And like most corporate companies they spend their time trying to people-please everyone. First off, most people are very smart, or if not smart - knowledgeable. Even if you are not a fan of Spider-Man and don’t know who he is and how he came to be, there’s this little thing called the internet which nearly everyone living on Earth has access to through their cell phones. We don’t need nor want another Spider-Man origin film. Maybe a couple of flashbacks but make him fighting 85% of the time in the movie.

Why put him back in high school? Duh, of course it’s to keep a younger demographic so the younger market can grow with the franchise. Great strategy. However, isn’t Spider-Man’s theme: with great power, comes great responsibility? You’re not that responsible in High School. It would be better to have him as a working student. (Yes, like the Sam Raimi version, but not as geeky) Having Peter/Spider-Man go through real life situations will resonate more with all people. Spider-Man is Peter’s out, like boxing is mine. This is why Andrew Garfield works. He gave swag to Spidey. A combinations of confidence, humor and intelligence - exactly what Spider-Man embodies.

Therefore, DO NOT REPLACE ANDREW GARFIELD. I know there’s a pool of acting talent that’s more affordable and can possibly bring life to the character, but we already got to know and love Garfield’s version. However, if you were to change the character from Peter Parker to Mile Morales, Donald Glover is the way to go. A more believable, urban version of Spider-Man would be a hit. A young, ethnic boy raised with great morals in a terrible neighborhood struggles to own up to his responsibilities as a college student and hero - The Spectacular Spider-Man. I like the sound of that. What do you think?

Make Your Mark

An exclusive behind the scenes look at how Tim Wen and Chidi Onyejuruwa created Symphony of Senses. This film/video was made for Make Your Mark, A Short Film Competition presented by the Producers Guild of America and Cadillac.

Tim Wen and Chidi Onyejuruwa are the winners of this year's Make Your Mark short film competition, sponsored by the Producers Guild of America and Cadillac.

Symphony of Senses will be screened during the PGA Awards Jan. 24, at the Century Plaza Hotel. A portion of film will be shown in Cadillac’s 30-second spot that will air on ABC during the Oscars on Feb. 22

A back story. I met Chidi 2 going on 3 years ago (Wow, how time flies.) A good friend of mine John connected me with another creative genius, Matt Nye. Wait, let me back up further. John and I met at the Art Institute in Fort Lauderdale, Florida through another friend Arsenio. Now fast forward. I moved to Cali and my friend John hits me up and tells me of another friend, Matt, just moved to Cali to flourish his acting career and we should meet. A couple of days later, I drive to Studio City to meet with Matt and have a creative meeting of the minds. Guess who's Matt's roomate? Chidi. The amazing thing of this Six Degrees of Separation is that I've witnessed the ever humble Mr. Onyejuruwa, aggressively go after his dream. Hustlin' between photography, filming and editing weddings to survive and hon his skills, bringing him even closer to his dream. When it came down to do my project, he selfishly helped me by co-producing and being my DP. That's when I found out about Symphony of Senses. I was one of the few that got a sneak peak at what I can say is hands down one of the best commercials I've ever seen. After I finished, Chidi gave his usual, humble smile. I told him if ya'll don't win this the PGA is dumb and blind. Well, The PGA isn't dumb and blind. They chose the right ones for the win.

That being said. Tonight is all about Chidi and his highly deserved win. CONGRATULATIONS TIM WEN and CHIDI ONYEJURUWA
