Video: Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 preview

Phoenix Fan Fusion is one of our favorite big comic cons to attend. They are considered one of the big 6 comic cons, even with the slight decrease in attendance last year.

Just like the mythical Phoenix, they are rising anew from the ashes of last year. They have a new name now… Phoenix Fan Fusion! They have also stacked their featured guest line up with some pretty impressive names. Jeff Goldblum, Paul Reubens, John Barrowman, George Takei, Elijah Wood, and Billy Dee Williams just to name a few.

Those featured guests will be up on the third floor in the Hall of Heroes. While you are fanboying/fangirling over your favorite guest you can also check out all the fan clubs/cosplay groups there. Star Wars always has a big corner with the 501st, Rebel Legion, R2 Builders Club, and the Mandalorian Mercs all joining together for an unforgettable experience. There will be fan clubs for Judge Dredd, Firefly (Browncoats), Doctor Who, and so many more. You can spend an entire day ( and a load of money) on the third floor.

If panels are your thing, you will find more than you can possibly attend. Most panels take place on the second floor. You name the topic and I’m sure they have a panel for it.

The ground floor is gonna be taken up mostly with food vendors and a few stray panel rooms.

The exhibit hall is down one floor. The convention center is separated on the ground floor by a street, but it is connected underground. The exhibit hall is enormous. You can spend the better part of a day just shopping.

in the lobby area underground there is always some interesting interactive stuff set up. Make sure to look around there before you run into the exhibit hall.

Las year they had a beer garden/food truck area set up on the street between the two convention center sides. That was really a nice perk last year. Being able to step outside under cover of a tent and grab a beer and maybe some tacos was nice.

More and more of the businesses and hotels surrounding the event area are starting to participate in the festivities as well. There will be tons of con specials and off site events.

Best thing is, tickets are readily available. You can get a full event pass for around $85, which is a huge bargain.

If you plan on cosplaying, please read their rules regarding what can and can’t be brought into the convention center. Security of the guests and attendees are very important.

You can find us probably in one of the autograph or photo op lines. If you see us, come talk to us. We’d love to hear from you.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

Video+Story – TNTM: Marvel Thor Ragnarok movie review

Alamo Drafthouse El Paso gave us the opportunity to watch Thor Ragnarok and give our review. This is the third movie for Thor as the title starring character.

***Warning, there may be unintentional spoilers below ***

Thor Ragnarok took a more humorous route than it’s predecessors. They finally let Chris Hemsworth show his comedic chops. His scenes with Hulk were some of the best in the movie.

Speaking of the Hulk, the CGI was good enough it didn’t take you out of the moment. All the special effects were very good. Fenris looked as real as a wolf the size of a house can look on film.

The movie was packed with top tier acting talent. I know we missed a bunch of the actors in our video review so I want to give you the list here:
Chris Hemsworth – Thor
Tom Hiddleston – Loki
Cate Blanchett – Hela
Idris Elba – Heimdall
Jeff Goldblum – Grandmaster
Tessa Thompson – Valkyrie
Karl Urban – Skurge
Mark Ruffalo – Bruce Banner / Hulk
Anthony Hopkins – Odin
Benedict Cumberbatch – Doctor Strange
Taika Waititi – Korg
Rachel House – Topaz
Clancy Brown – Surtur (voice)
Tadanobu Asano – Hogun
Ray Stevenson – Volstagg
Zachary Levi – Fandral
Luke Hemsworth – Actor Thor
Sam Neill – Actor Odin
Matt Damon – Actor Loki
Stan Lee – Barber

I liked the movie a lot. I place it in my top 3 favorite Marvel movies. Jack liked the movie as well, but he thought the humor was forced in some parts of the movie. Overall we both thought the movie was VERY GOOD. We are both just a coupla hack movie reviewers though. You shouldn’t take our word for it. That’s why we asked fellow audience members what they thought of Thor Ragnarok. Their response was 100% favorable. Watch the video if you don’t believe me.

TNTM: Jurassic World 2 will have stars both old and new

People have always been fascinated with dinosaurs.  Nothing capitalized on this better than Jurassic Park.  The great story-line accompanied by ground breaking special effects proved to be a blockbuster combination.

The Jurassic Park series gave us 3 movies, countless merchandise, video games, and a theme park attraction.   The dino craze seemed to dwindle in the early 2000’s.  The new generation had not been exposed to the Jurassic Park phenomenon.  That was until 2015 when Jurassic World was released in theaters.

Jurassic World followed the same basic formula as Jurassic Park.  They build a big zoo full of “extinct” dinosaurs.  Lots of people visit the zoo.  Big bad dinosaurs manage to get out and kill people. Heroes perform courageous acts to contain dinosaur threat.  The difference this time is they improved the special effects…. A LOT!

They recently announced they will be filming Jurassic World 2.  Chris Pratt, BD Wong, and Bryce Dallas Howard will be reprising their roles.  The big announcement is they are bringing back the Chaos Theory man himself, Jeff Goldblum.  There are also rumors that Jurassic Park alumni Sam Neill and Laura Dern may be returning as Grant and Ellie.

There are plenty of rumors about the proposed plot for Jurassic World 2.  If they can come up with a believable story-line to go with the all-star cast, they will have another huge movie on their list.

Mark your calendars for June 22, 2018.  I have a feeling you won’t want to miss this one.
