Let’s Go Virtual!

Let’s Go Virtual!

Hey Everyone,

So lately I have been in talks with a few companies and come up with a few more interesting videos to make. Now, I’m happy to let you all know that I have been given the green light to learn first hand about the world of Virtual Reality through the good people at ATLvr! I will be attending and filming an event they are hosting later this week and also plan to have a sit-down interview and tour of their office space at a later date. This is going to be a fun experience that I want to share with all of you, so I will be sharing different moments with all of you, especially this upcoming event.

I welcome all of you to keep up with everything that’s going on, not only am I setting out to create entertaining content, but also informative. The Virtual Reality space is growing at a enormous level, and here is a way to learn from the enthusiasts and influencers. Hope that all of you reading this are ready and are as enthusiastic as I am!

Thank You All for Listening,
Brandon

The Danish Girl (1st Trailer)

The Danish Girl (1st Trailer)

Few of you may or may not know this, but The Theory of Everything was my favorite film of 2014. Now for 2015, we get the 1st trailer to the latest Working Title produced, Eddie Redmayne starring film, The Danish Girl. I cannot get over how amazing this trailer is! I believe I’m more anxious for this than I was for The Theory of Everything. It was already on my list of movies to see for the end of 2015, but now I’m even more excited to see it. Check out the brand new trailer for The Danish Girl.

Please let me know your thoughts on the trailer. Also I’m in the process of editing the footage from the Atlanta Tech Village event I filmed. Be sure to subscribe to The Wingfield Blog!

Boulevard: Review

Boulevard: Review

It’s taken me longer to get around to watching this, but Robin Williams last live action film was something I refused to miss. So here’s my thoughts and review of Boulevard.

Less than 5 minutes into the film, Boulevard starts off catching the tone and tackling the heart of what this story is ultimately about. You’re able to catch on immediately not only because of the dialogue, but by the way Williams carries himself, his mannerisms and facial expressions. Williams stars as Nolan, the married, middle-aged banker who seems to just blend in with society and is generally unenthusiastic about much of anything. During a drive back home from, Nolan decides to take a different way and unknowingly stumbles across a male prostitute named Leo. Unintentionally, Leo becomes a source to confide in, someone to release his some thoughts and emotions to, which is something that he has not been willing to do with his wife Joy, or his closest friend Winston.IMG_1441

As Boulevard progresses, Nolan becomes more enamored with Leo. But more importantly, he becomes enamored with the idea of opening up to someone and openly become the person he feel he’s meant to be. Plenty of people might find a number of Nolan’s actions as “creepy” and/or “wrong” in this film for certain reasons, but feel free to form your own judgement after you see AND think about the film. The level of emotions picks up immensely in the second half of the film. Acceptance, fear, anger, happiness, all emotions have a place here. There were moments where I would reflect on past and current situations and think about if they were being handled appropriately at the time.

Boulevard is a great dramatic piece that will make your mind work in a good way. Even though the trailer gives you about 90% of the film, it still deserves a watch to truly understand. The performances were well done, the flow of the film might have been slightly too fast, there were a few scenes that I thought could have been expanded, and at it’s very core, it delivered its intended message. I said that this is a very emotional film, but when you remember that this is the last live action film of a one of a kind talent, it hits even harder. Boulevard won’t bring you as much joy as Mrs. Doubtfire or Patch Adams, and won’t be as memorable as Good Will Hunting, Aladdin, or Dead Poets Society, but it is definitely his best work in years. Thank You Robin.

Have any of you seen Boulevard yet? Have plans of seeing it? Any thoughts? Let me know! Also don’t forget to subscribe to The Wingfield Blog.

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F Review/ Best Theater Experience Ever!

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F Review/ Best Theater Experience Ever!

8/4/15- This was the best day I have ever had in the theater.

My & my old roommates gather up at the theater a little early to check out Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F. We get in the theater, not too many people are there but seats quickly start to fill up as we get closer to the start of the movie. In no time we’re hit with shouting about the sound not working, Kamehameha’s, Team Four Star jokes, & this went on for about 20 minutes 7:00 comes around, someone decides to rewind to the very beginning, and we found out Fathom Events is playing everything through DISH NETWORK!!!!! THE THEATER GOES OFF!! Everyone’s laughing, making jokes, I almost cried laughing to the point where your neck starts to hurt, and managed to take this picture and a 10 second video before my battery died (I’ll try to get that up too). 

Everyone’s killing time watching anime videos on their cell phones, talking to one another with people they just met, enjoying one another’s company. Close to 8:00, a manager finally comes and tells us that they have been on the phone with Fathom Events (host of the show) and that they were having satellite issues. We were give the options to either stick around & wait, get a refund, or a free movie pass to whatever movie we wanted for the next year. My friends and I (along with 30 or so other people) opted for the movie passes & met up with some people in the front who were getting refunds. While at the front, we get word that the sound is finally working! EVERYBODY RUNS BACK TO THE THEATER! We lost our seats but still managed to get seats next to each other that were not unbearable. This was the experience with the theater, now let’s talk about the experience with the movie itself!

Positives
I’m going to assume that everyone knows the story of DBZRF, the resurrection of Frieza and the events following. The beginning of the movie doesn’t start off the way that people would expect it to. If anyone remembers the beginning of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events movie, think of that but much happier & pinker. Resurrection F moves at an almost perfect pace, there were very few scenes that I thought dragged on too long or could have completely done without. All of the characters give a great performances, the fight scenes are action packed as I hoped it would, entertaining all the way through.

DBZ-060 copy_FLATNegatives
The story is pretty predictable, especially if you pay attention to what certain characters say throughout the movie, but I really didn’t place any emphasis on predictability so I wasn’t bothered by that. The only real complaints I have with the movie is the incorporation of Emperor Pilaf, the reduction of character status for Gohan, & the the screwing over of Vegeta. Battle of Gods had entire scenes with Pilaf & his crew that I thought were completely unnecessary. Resurrection F shortens his inclusion immensely & to the point where it makes more sense, even though I don’t see the insistence of putting them in either movies. Fighting wise, Gohan’s one step ahead of Piccolo, although I personally appreciated Piccolo much more than I did with this older Gohan that decided not to dedicate time to work & training, but cut out training altogether. Gohan meant a lot to DBZ fans, I wanted to see him grow up & be a deal breaker in fights alongside Goku & Vegeta, not hanging in the background with everyone else. As far as Vegeta getting screwed over goes, you’ll just have to watch the movie to get that one.

Final Thoughts
Overall, this is a great addition to the DBZ Film Franchise. Is it better than Battle of Gods? Well…………………..for the most DBZ-011 copy_FLATpart, no. When I watch Battle of Gods, I skip the Pilaf/Dragon Balls scene every time, because I thought it was so unnecessary. But at the same time, BOG also has that intensity factor that makes it so special & worth it, which Resurrection F lacks. It’s a great movie! & I encourage everyone to go see it and show Funimation that we want more! I would also like to thank AMC Theaters, Fathom Events, Funimation, & Everyone in the theater yesterday for making yesterday THE best experience I’ve had in the theater so far. I got a great movie, a fun experience, & 2 free movie tickets to any movie I want until mid-August 2016!

Did any of you go see the movie yesterday? Planning on going to see the movie? Any questions that I may have not answered? Let Me know! Also I’m still having my Free Movie Giveaway, click the link for info on that & also be sure to subscribe to The Wingfield Blog!
