Maybe with all of the advancement in VR tech, it’s a good idea to make a film that satisfies one’s deepest desires not achievable in AAA titles. Or…maybe not. “Hardcore Henry” is an action-packed (emphasis on the “packed”) 90-minute 1st person thrill ride that puts audience members in a visceral and nauseating position.

The endless barrage of action sequences stacked on Cloverfield- approved camera-work may have you regretting not picking up a couple of aspirins before the opening trailers.

The early 2000s game plot line opens on a lab setting where synthetic goodies are being stitched to the protagonist/director/audience’s body by an increasing gorgeous Estelle (Haley Bennett) who claims to be the wife of said character Henry. Just before our hero’s voice can be activated, the lab is raided by heavy-armed men at the command of telekinetic albino antagonist Akan (Danila Kozlovsky) whose B-button weapon is the death of story originality. Next, there’s the first of many struggles, complete with an impossible dive from the airship housing the lab and the inevitable kidnapping (inciting incident) of Henry’s wife.

A classic run’n'gun-inspired button tutorial follows as Henry makes his way through Moscow until he encounters an alley named Jimmy (Sharlto Copley) who feeds him mini-missions which ultimately lead him to the final boss who wants to take…over the world? Gripping.

“Henry” is a free-for-all of the most epic moments in video game history adapted into live-action form. No matter how impossible, no matter how grotesque, it check off every gamer’s to-do list without breaking a sweat or breathing for that matter. At times, it feels more like the creator’s personal quest to produce the world’s first action trope encyclopedia than a Friday night flick.

The excessive stuffing of crude excitement eventually becomes the film’s undoing as we are left with little personal involvement aside from Copley’s comedic antics. If doused in paint thinner, it would be unfortunately reduced to a VFX YouTube playlist, modern stereotypes and a thinning plot.

Still, newcomer Ilya Naishuller’s technical direction reflects a struggle for true innovation in the action genre and whose efforts closely align with those undertaken decades ago by a young George Lucas with a breakthrough experiment called THX 1138. While innovation may be present, cinematic merit is awarded to quality, not quantity much of which is absent from the film’s foundation.

The muted superpowered hero and the creative annihilation of the interchangeable NPCs may speak to the Millennials whose ideas of entertainment are built around the freedom of Grand Theft Auto and the immersive nature of Battlefield, but ultimately the film’s incapability of delivering user control, the most alluring feature of such an experiment, denies itself submission to the list of great modern action films.

There has always been a thin line between gimmick and game-changer but taking a half-hearted step forward is only two steps back.

Don’t go into this expecting a comedy, even though that is one of the tags on the IMDb page. Though it does have elements of dark comedy.

This is not a lighthearted movie, to say the least; yet I would describe it as powerful and very “real.” It is the complete opposite of a fairy tale and the complete opposite of romantic comedies – and that is very refreshing. It will cause you to think long and hard about your own relationships. You will continue to think about the movie long after you have left the theater.

If you like thought provoking movies that have very authentic characters and story lines, then I recommend this movie for you. The movie isn’t all dark, it does have it’s lighthearted moments and I felt it did a great job building the emotion as the movie went on.

Saw this at TIFF on one of the last days, and I was a bit worried I would be movied-out. Thankfully, this film was completely refreshing, and ended up being one of my favourites of the festival.

I’ve always liked Anna Kendrick, but I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed or appreciated her work this much. She was totally on the ball and hilarious, and she and Sam Rockwell make an unexpectedly perfect couple. The comedy was on point throughout the movie, and the jokes were awesome and very original. You fall in love with the characters and as strange as the plot is, the love story between them is very believable.

Although it’s about a hit-man and of course there’s a lot of killing in it, it’s not too gory, so I’d say most people could handle it even if they’re somewhat faint of heart. Definitely go see it. It’s well worth your while, and I think it will be considered one of the best comedies of the year.

Notorious YouTubers Roman Atwood, Dennis Roady and Vitaly have been partners in crime before YouTube careers were really a thing, setting up hidden cameras and pulling increasingly outrageous pranks on people — chasing people while dressed like a zombie, pretending to publicly urinate in front of police, pretending to throw a toddler off a balcony in front of his mom, the list goes on and on.
Now they’re making the leap to the big screen, and there’s no telling how far the madness will go.
“The coolest thing about everything we have right now, it really came from all three of us,” Roman said during their visit to the What’s Trending Podcast. “Our journey is because of us three. All of us got to where we’re at because of each other. We really did climb together at the same time.”
Premiering on April 1, Natural Born Pranksters features the trio staging pranks that were too crazy and elaborate to put on YouTube — pretending to get third-degree burns at a tanning salon, pretending to kill dogs in the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant, and in one of their biggest stunts yet, finding a woman who was nine months pregnant and making her white husband think she’d given birth to a black baby.
The movie was filmed in 30 days and took six months of writing and six more months of legal wrangling to pull off, and it involves some of the best filmmakers in the business, including people who helped produce Jackass: The Movie. (“You couldn’t even spot the hidden cameras,” Roman told us.) It also features cameos from YouTubers like Jenna Marbles, Furious Pete, Logan Paul and more.
These days, of course, YouTube is crawling with pranksters trying to get rich and famous, and Roman, Dennis and Vitaly have trouble finding people to prank who don’t immediately recognize them. Roman admitted that the genre has developed something of a bad reputation in recent years:
Believe it or not, this movie started over two years ago. When we started this project, the YouTube prank world was still great — people still liked pranks. Now it’s got such a bad light. The prank world is kind of like, ‘Oh, you’re a prankster? Ehhh…’ It’s been over-saturated. There’s a new viral prank every day now. There’s just so much of it, so how do you stand out in the prank world?
For many pranksters, the answer to that question is to get more and more controversial — Natural Born Pranksters is already drawing accusations of racism for their Chinese restaurant dog-killing prank, for instance. In the end, Dennis said, they’re just three guys trying to have fun. “Somebody’s always going to be offended.”

Review

Everybody Wants Some!! was a perfect film for this moment: it consists of little more than a bunch of overly-competitive jocks joking with each other, partying, and trying to get laid over the course of three days before school even starts. It’s intelligently written, fun, well-acted, and well-shot. What more could you ask for? Linklater, of course, does it all in a slice of life fashion: the opening of the film doesn’t even attempt to describe what’s going to happen and the end of the film barely describes what happened beforehand. The movie is almost meditative, and yet continually looking for stimulus in the largest and tiniest things… really whatever kind of stimulus they can get their hands on. Story-wise, it unfolds over almost every part of the era, which is, as far as I could tell, undefined yet seemingly somewhere during the 80s. Each night takes us to a different flavor of the time: disco, punk, you name it… but the genius of the script is that you don’t really realize you’ve been given a tasting menu until you’ve already eaten everything. It just seems natural when it happens. Everything in this film seems natural, and that’s a credit to the director, but also the actors. I imagine casting was the most important part of putting this film together and it seems to have been a success: every actor kills their part. Were they even acting? I have a feeling they were just being themselves. If you want to watch some kids mess around and laugh with them or at them, Everybody Wants Some!! not only is your movie, but probably will be your movie for a long time coming.

Review

First off, I would just like to say that this movie was awesome. It is not without flaws, but of those there are very few. BvS delivered in every aspect. Contrary to popular belief, which will probably change once the movie comes out, Jesse Eisenberg gave a stand-out performance as Lex Luthor. Ben Affleck might just be the best Batman ever. If Henry Cavill didn’t impress you in Man of Steel, he will in this one. And if you had any reservations about Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman, you can be at ease now. She too gave a stand-out performance in the movie, and was definitely a fan favorite.

In terms of cons, there is really only one scene in the movie that wasn’t quite on par with the rest of the movie, and that is because for some reason, they must not have really tried to make the CGI good in this scene. The CGI in this scene is pretty bad, and you will know which one i’m talking about when you see the movie yourself. Besides that, I didn’t see any problems with CGI, or the rest of the movie for that matter.

On a closing note, I will add (spoiler unless you saw one specific shot in the final trailer) we can expect Darkseid to show up in one of the Justice League films. One scene undoubtedly hints at that, and you’ll know that hint when you see it.

Review

There aren’t many good moments in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but Ryan Reynolds turn as the motor-mouthed special ops agent Wade Wilson was one of them. Naturally, because everything in Origins is awful, they cut him from the picture early on and when he returns his mouth is sewn shut, Scott Adkins replaced Reynolds, and the character was clumsily referred to as both “The Dead Pool” and “Weapon XI”. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong with the studio’s treatment of the character, and the last 6 ½ years have been trying to give the “Merc with a Mouth”, who also has a devoted following from his fourth-wall breaking comics, the movie he deserves.

Director Tim Miller has accomplished this feat with Deadpool, which may be a little rote when it comes to rebooting the character into a fresh origin story (while still getting in some jabs at Wolverine— the movie, the X-Man, and the actor), but is an absolutely delight when it throws Reynolds into the black-and-red suit and has him slicing and shooting his way through hard R-rated mayhem. Although the movie can’t really do much with its thin “love story”, it’s enough to carry us to what we really want: filthy insults, a charming mix of clever and crude humor, and a blood-drenched, bloody good time. Moving through a series of flashbacks, the movie slowly gets us up to date on the story of Wade Wilson (Reynolds), a former special ops soldier who now makes a living by being a bad guy to worse guys. While at his favorite bar, Wade meets and falls in love with the thin and thinly-drawn Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), who’s just as messed up as he is. However, their bliss is short-lived when Wade gets cancer, and seeks out radical treatment from a shady figure who ultimately leads him to meet Ajax (Ed Skrein), a mad scientist who wants to unlock Wade’s mutant genes and turn him into a super-slave to the highest bidder. That sends Wade out on a mission of revenge and also with the hope that Ajax can reverse our antihero’s disfigurement.

While Wade certainly won’t be winning any beauty pageants any time soon, the film wants to sell us on an unbreakable love between him and Vanessa that’s also so fragile that she would go running if she caught sight of him. So when Deadpool tells us that this is a “love story”, it’s hard to take him one of his few serious statements seriously. But the character does need some positive motivation and his love for Vanessa is just enough to balance out his overpowering rage and insanity, which is where the film takes the majority of its joy. The love story angle is basically a minor, half-hearted apology for the ensuing foul-mouthed, glorious bloodbath, and it almost makes me wish we could just skip ahead to Deadpool 2 where everyone is on board with this character, because Reynolds, Miller, and screenwriters Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick know him inside and out. This is almost the best adaptation fans could have hoped for, and while he’s shackled to an origin story that sends us jumping back and forth in time, it’s the only way to get the film out to an energetic start. If the script had gone chronologically, most of the audience would have probably tuned out before things got really good.

Basically, whenever Wade is in full Deadpool regalia, the movie is electric. From the brilliant opening credits to the clever closing joke, Deadpool is dead-on with its sense of humor and incisive wit, and while it doesn’t thoroughly skewer superhero movies or take note of the current climate, it tends to nail any target in its cross-hairs, including 20th Century Fox, Hugh Jackman, and others.

There’s nothing mean-spirited in the movie’s tone; we just get wrapped up in the character’s irreverence. Deadpool is just about everything you could hope for from a Deadpool movie given the boundaries of A) it’s an origin story; B) it has to bring in people who are unfamiliar with the character; and C) it’s upending traditional superhero tropes. Even with these restraints, the film is often an absolute blast that had me rolling over with laughter again and again. It’s a shame we had to wait so long for Deadpool to mouth off again, but hopefully he’ll be serving up some shortchanges in the not-too-distant future.

Review

(Don’t get me wrong, I love Frozen, but I feel it’s been overplayed in pop culture that it’s more boring than it should be. Maybe a few years of space will revive it)

Zootopia is a fantastic film, quite analogous to the current political climate in the western world, but still a fun film even when the themes are ignored.

We follow Judy Hopps, a rabbit who has a dream of becoming a Police Officer. However, in the world of Zootopia, the Police Force is dominated by larger animals, making Judy the first Rabbit on the force.

Right out the gate, the film makes it obvious the story is about prejudice, but it has a few twists along the way.

You see, there are two polarities in Zootopia. There’s Predator/Prey relations, and Size relations. The world attempts to accommodate for the needs of all the inhabitants, but the world is still ruled by stereotypes. Judy Hopps has to fight hard for her position, having to be the Valedictorian of her class at the Police Academy, but she is still relegated to being a Parking Officer because of her size. She is forced to prove herself to be the best, even though a fair society will have given her the benefit of the doubt.

The other polarity is Predator/Prey relations, a direct parallel to Majority/Minority races in the Western World. The Predators are a minority in the world of Zootopia, making about 10% of the population. Because of their evolutionary ancestors, there is a prejudice against them that they could turn feral at any moment, becoming ruthless killers like they were before they became anthropomorphic animal-people. The plot in Act 2 and 3 becomes a political conspiracy to frame the predators for a series of attacks against the prey to throw society against them. This can be seen in real life, especially regarding how the west sees Muslim people and/or black people.

The one flaw, however, is that they pull a very similar plot twist to Frozen, in that a background character is revealed to be the ‘True’ Villain, just like Hans. Just like Frozen, the villain reveal comes literally minutes before the end of the film, making their impact to the story rushed.

Overall, this is a great movie, and a very timely one at that. Perhaps some of the pop-culture references will become dated, but like all Disney movies, there will be enough here to make the film a timeless classic.

Review

I have decided that I do not like what the director, Robert Schwentke, has done with the franchise. He directed the second film, Insurgent, and the third, Allegiant.

I can understand why anyone would want to deviate from the source material because there were many problems with Veronica Roth’s writing. The books had a flimsy premise but excellent commentary. To reconcile the two, Schwentke got rid of pretty much all the commentary and turned the franchise into a B-grade sci-fi action flick, the kind with over-the-top “futuristic technology” and over- the-top post- apocalyptic landscapes. The major changes in the plot make it very campy, when the books weren’t all that campy to begin with. If this franchise was trying to live up to the Hunger Games films, it did not go in the right direction.

There are some positives – the cast did a fantastic job. Shailene Woodley’s Tris in this film is a major improvement from Insurgent, in which “she cut her hair and grew an attitude” (as my brother described it). Theo James as Four (and to some extent, Ansel Elgort as Caleb) was given a bugger role and did a pretty good job. Miles Teller had been the best thing in Insurgent and he continued to be hilarious. He’s very different than his character in the book, but I’m not complaining, because he is incredibly entertaining. Zoe Kravitz as Christina was okay. I’m glad that she got enough screen time to have a major role in this film. I also think the movie deserves serious props for having a very diverse cast, both in terms of race and gender.

It is interesting that we are going to get a fourth film – Ascendant. The third film, while it didn’t follow the book, does very roughly end where the third book ended. Minus the incredibly controversial ending. Which makes me think that Ascendant will likely be an original story and might diverge from that ending, but we shall see. I’m glad that we’re getting a different director for the final installment.

Review

London Has Fallen is a classic example of a no-one-asked-for sequel trying to ride on the coattails of its descendant’s box-office success. The follow-up to the 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, features a more heightened sense of gravity due to a city-scale approach and the extra presidents thrown in the plot, but essentially it falls in the same premise and further exploits itself as a mindless action film.

Gerard Butler reprises his role of Mike Banning, a recommissioned Secret Service agent to the U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart). We learn from the onset that Mike is an expectant father contemplating on resigning his job but when the British Prime Minister mysteriously “dies in his sleep”, Mike is forced to escort the president to the PM’s funeral in the Buckingham Palace, London. They are also to be joined by the prominent world leaders from the Group of Seven (Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan and U.S.), making it the “most protected event on earth.” Surely, everyone, except Mike Banning, ignores the fact that this is a glaring scheme to assassinate the presidents and soon enough, in an orchestral fashion, bombs are detonated, cars go up in smoke, the presidents are killed one-by-one (save for President Asher who manages to escape) and every known landmark in the British capital is blown to pieces (yes, London Bridge is falling down and it’s a sub-par CGI). What follows is the formulaic ‘action-chase-small break-repeat’ as Mike Banning tries to return his employer to safety.

The sequel brings back the main cast from the first film only to deny them of something new to do. Aaron Eckhart is still the president/damsel-in-distress that needs saving. The only good thing in his arc is that the dynamics between him and Gerard Butler is enjoyable as their relationship is more of a bromance rather than a boss-employee. Angela Bassett as Lynne Jacobs, the Director of the United States Secret Service, is included in the terrorist action but is underused in the film. Morgan Freeman as Allan Trumbull, has moved up the notch from House Speaker to U.S. Vice President, but is still stuck in the same control room throughout the entire film. Morgan Freeman does great given that he has little to do but I would rather listen to him dramatically reading Justin Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’ than watching him play the same role over and over again.

Gerard Butler fuels the high-octane excitement in this film. He is disgustingly violent yet likable and really pulls-off his stunts. Butler/King Leonidas should stay on this element, keep on firing and stabbing people that comes in his way and pass on rom-coms and attempting to transform himself to an Egyptian god.

The action sequences, though highly derivative from the array of 90’s classic action flicks like Die Hard, are engrossing and there’s no lying about it. Director Babak Najafi at some point even infuses POV shooting in narrow alleyways and corridors (Call of Duty comes to mind) in a long one-take shot. Apparently that is the cool thing nowadays.

But even in a slew of hard-hitting action sequences, expectations set by the first film fall upon seeing the sequel. London Has Fallen tries to up the excitement by expanding to a larger universe but manages to lay out an inferior and predictable story in the process. Is there going to be a follow up of *insert major city* Has Fallen to the franchise? The producers can’t decide, if they should give more ideas to ISIS so they resorted to a rushed final scene hinting that there could a possibility.

The Revenant (2015): Dir: Alejandro G. Inarritu / Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter, Forrest Goodluck: Gruelling and gritty film about facing nature, man and animal at its most extreme and secluded. Set in 1823 with a hunting expedition gone wrong when natives invade seeking blood and pelts. A few survivors escape blood shed on a boat but must take a winter forest route to avoid detection. Leonardo DiCaprio delivers a grinding performance as Hugh Glass, a hunter and scout who is attacked by a bear and nearly mauled to death until he killed the bear. Tom Hardy plays antagonist John Fitzgerald who is a greedy member of the hunting party. He kills Glass’s native son and leaves him buried alive. Motivated by revenge, Glass crawls, limps and presses forward for the confrontation Fitzgerald dreads happening. Domhnall Gleeson plays Andrew Henry, captain of the expedition who wants Fitzgerald brought to justice when he learns what happened. Will Poulter plays a young trapper deceived by Fitzgerald leaving him guilt ridden when he learns that Glass could be alive. Forrest Goodluck plays Hawk, Glass’s native son who is subdued by insults and ridicule by Fitzgerald before being killed. Alejandro G. Inarritu follows up his success with Birdman with lavish and ominous images of snow covered forests as well as extreme violence including a chase that follows Glass and a horse over a cliff. It is a brutal and direct film about man’s greed and another man’s desire to strive through the valley of death to claim the justice when all is taken away. Score: 10 / 10

Review

Like Academy Award winner Brie Larson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead acts brilliantly with her eyes. In 10 Cloverfield Lane (my latest review), she portrays the quintessential, astute heroine. Winstead channels fear, dread, and discomfort like nobody’s business. And being the only good commodity in 2011’s prequel The Thing, she’s now the best commodity in “Lane” (2016’s most beguiling surprise).

Produced by J.J. Abrams, taking place in Louisiana, showcasing a soundtrack fastened with 60’s radio hits, and having all of its plot points intricately put into their rightful places, 10 Cloverfield Lane is nifty not to mention wholly original. A majority of its running time is in enclosed spaces (agoraphobics need not worry). In terms of its final act, well “Lane” has a quota of squirmy, alien fare. The CGI and special effects are decent but may just be for show. You will for the most part, be more enamored by what you didn’t see on the outside (the first 90 minutes are what I like to call the violence in the mind).

Anyway, the film with only 4 characters visible on screen, is a genre piece tested purely in psychological thrills and chills. On the surface, its structure as a sequel (to 2008’s more big-budgeted Cloverfield) feels a lot like direct-to-video. Thankfully that never ends up being the case. And rightfully, “Lane” isn’t a follow-up that continues the whole found footage BS.

The story begins with an outlined car crash scene so loud, so instinctive, and so unexpected, it might just make you flip out of your seat. In said crash is thirtysomething Michelle (played by Mary Winstead). Michelle has just broken off her engagement to her boyfriend Ben (voiced by Bradley Cooper). After leaving his ring and keys to his apartment on the dining room table, she drives away to someplace north of the Bayou State. A mystery motorist hits her from the back, Michelle’s car spins out of control, and she ends up in a ditch. When she awakens, she finds herself constricted to an underground shelter owned by a short-tempered man named Howard Stambler (played by John Goodman). Howard has either abducted her or wants to keep her alive from an unknown, extraterrestrial/nuclear attack. Unsure of his motivations (Howie is a little rattled, a little threatening, and socially inept), Michelle vows to escape anyway even though Goodman’s trouper thinks the air outside is unbreathable. She attempts this with the help of another young soul in confinement (the naive Emmett Dewitt played by John Gallagher, Jr.). Some online critics have compared 10 Cloverfield Lane to last year’s Academy Award winner, Room. If that’s the case then heck, sign me up.

Now “Lane” with its bedazzling score, its claustrophobic setting eliminating plenty of storyline holes, and its 1950’s bunker overtones, is an effectual, nerve-shredding thriller. It evokes Hitchcock, The Twilight Zone, and doesn’t need extra images of monsters to invigorate you, the viewer. Having seen Cloverfield, I didn’t get much of a connection between that shaky camera vehicle and the new, supposed successor. No matter. 10 Cloverfield Lane stands on its own with three great performances (the creepy John Goodman, Winstead, and the affable John Gallagher, Jr.), a sense of disquiet that exists in the gray matter, and direction by rookie Dan Trachtenberg that feels like seasoned veteran stuff. The ending which I won’t reveal, contains a level of badassery (not to mention an inkling of hope). It will make you pump your fist and feel a sense of wonderment all at the same time. My rating: 3 and a half stars.

Note: If you haven’t seen “Lane” yet, brace yourself. This might sound a little weird. There’s a slight homage to the 1986 flick, Pretty in Pink (yup). In that 80’s relic, Molly Ringwald is an aspiring designer of clothes. She draws up attire patterns with pencils and paper. In 10 Cloverfield Lane, Winstead’s Michelle does the exact same thing. She tries to design a space suit in case she escapes the isolated, underground bunker (small spoiler). Oh and look for a scene where John Goodman’s Howard actually watches “Pink” on VHS. All hail Harry Dean Stanton (ha).

The Brothers Grimsby is a movie that does have it’s moments where it makes you laugh but mostly is an unfunny mess of a movie with mediocre acting and a weak plot that doesn’t really keep you invested in any of the characters that you might just care about.

Sacha Baron Cohen is the best part about this movie along with Mark Strong because these two character might feel like they have a connection. Mark Strong plays a secret spy and Sacha Baron Cohen plays a normal dad and husband who finds out his brother who is Mark Strong is going to be at a place so Nobby sets out to reunite with his brother after decades apart. The plot probably could have been pulled off if it wasn’t a comedy and more of a serious James Bond style spy movie because most of the comedy this movie tries to pull off is disgusting, such as the two leads having to crawl inside an Elephant vagina to get away from the people trying to kill them. Honestly i did laugh sometimes in this movie but i hated the first 45-60 minutes of this movie because it wasn’t funny or interesting or cool or fun, which this movie should have been. This movie has an OK story but it wasn’t pulled off right and the two main characters were really the only good thing about this movie.

At the end of the day this movie might be OK if you’re able to hold down your vomit for the 1 hour and 30 minutes, and if you also want to turn your brain completely off.

Sony Pictures Corp. informs us with its latest effort to apprise their share-holding owners in Japan of America’s Religious Beliefs. The world certainly remembers that earlier Medical Miracle from the Lone Star State, in which an unknown bike rider contracted testicular cancer and nearly died. Yet this American Hero (named Lance Armstrong) was provided with a Miraculous Cure from Heaven and went on to win the world’s premier endurance event, The Tour of France bike jaunt, 7 TIMES IN A ROW, something that has never been done before or since. Similarly, MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN (based upon a True Story as debuted on Fox “News”) recounts a more recent Act of God, in which 10-year-old Anna Beam fell 30-feet down inside a Heavenly Hollow Cottonwood Tree and suffered a Spontaneous Remission of her genetic Intestinal Pseudoobstruction Disorder. (Kudos to actress Jennifer Garner, for managing to look so grievously pained throughout MIRACLES as Mom Christy Beam that viewers just KNOW that young Anna Beam must be a chip off her genetic block!) Sony’s rendition of Anna’s Butterfly Heaven featuring Monet’s Lilypads is particularly well done. Sony is letting the World know that one needn’t go back to the 1800s and stories of golden scrolls deciphered inside Magic Top Hats, or even the 1900s and tales of UFO landing spots to deify the RISKY BUSINESS dancing queen to access America’s current Religious Superiority! Also, it’s crucial not to overlook the Financial Miracle resulting from Anna’s Trip to Heaven, because without it there could NOT have been a book OR a movie, and the Beam family would have been financially ruined due to the cost of Anna’s illness. But, as it must say somewhere in the Holy Bible, “Another day, another dollar!”

. . . as a thematic remake of LAST TANGO IN PAR!S, only in an American Urban Setting. Terence Jenkins is cast in the Marlon Brando role, Boffing a random Bride-to-Be right through her final Pure White Dress fitting, just as Brando had earlier. However, THE PERFECT MATCH surrounds Bride Poker Jenkins with a gaggle of loquacious friends, so that a copious outpouring of verbal diarrhea can be substituted for 99.9% of LAST TANGO’s sex. THE PERFECT MATCH constitutes the perfect film to watch any time you find yourself trapped for a night in a small one-bed suite with an attractive-but-married supervisor, coworker, or subordinate due to a hotel booking error, and you need to put something on the TV that’s such an erotic wet blanket\total sensual snuff out that you’ll surely be asleep before your unexpected roommate can finish brushing their teeth. Additionally, THE PERFECT MATCH is carefully constructed to make its target audience feel great about our stake in America, as its work-places, homes, and furnishings should prove easily within reach for anyone making it through eighth grade at the average L.A., Detroit, or Newark middle school.

Here’s the story of a female war correspondent covering the war in Afghanistan when there wasn’t much interest in the war in Afghanistan. It is produced by Tina Fey which explains how she got herself to play the lead in a not pure comedy.

Tina Fey doesn’t work to hard and doesn’t break a sweat even in the dessert. Billy Bob Thornton seems uncomfortable but not nearly as distracting as Alfred Molina who looked like he was auditioning for a role in “Fiddler on the Roof”. It was a bad audition.

There is plenty of drinking, drugs and swearing. If you are expecting a laugh a minute Tina Fey movie, this isn’t it. If you want to be taken where you will never go, this is an interesting journey. There’s a good use of extensive period music.

The movie doesn’t need a big screen and will play well on home platforms. The language and violence my cause you to give up in the first thirty minutes but it eventually hits its stride and it is worth your time.

Review

According to the 2012 animated film, Count Dracula ran “Hotel Transylvania” as a resort for monsters who wanted to get away from the humans who frighten them. One day, a human boy named Jonathan stumbles upon the existence of this hotel and falls for the Gothic charms of Dracula’s daughter Mavis. Being the over-protective dad that he was, single-dad Dracula does everything to keep the two from falling in love.

In this sequel, Jonathan and Mavis got married and have a son Dennis. Dracula was very concerned that his grandson Dennis was already turning five, but was not showing any signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis and Jonathan fly to California to visit his parents, Dracula and his wacky gang of monsters bring Dennis to a vampire summer camp, hoping the kid’s fangs come out faster.

From the poster alone, we already know that this sequel will be a cute juvenile romp with delightful “monsters”. The story line is reminiscent of other films, like “Sky High” or “The Incredibles,” about the distress caused by an offspring who apparently did not have the superpowers of his parents. In the first film, the laughs came from Dracula struggling with the problem of his daughter falling in love with a human. In this sequel, it was also Dracula’s struggles about this grandson that make this film funny (mildly) more than anything else.

Since this is a sequel, the artwork was basically the same as the first one, with most of the characters coming back to reprise their roles. Curiously, the look of the new main character baby Dennis was not at all original. With his full head of wild curly red hair, Dennis looked almost exactly like the baby brothers of Merida in “Brave.” The design of Great Grandpa Vlad and more so his scary sidekick Bela and his army of ghoulish vampire bats could be the stuff of nightmares for very young kids. The special effect of flames looked very good.

Adam Sandler’s voice was very apparent as Count Dracula. You can totally imagine him talking in that “Dracula” accent. The cast list boasts of an impressive roster of noted comedians past and present who were all able to project their comic personas through their voice work for their characters. Of course, Sandler’s usual movie posse is there composed of Kevin James (as Frankenstein), Steve Buscemi (as Werewolf Wayne), and David Spade (as Invisible Man Griffin). Andy Samberg plays the goofy Jonathan opposite teen star Selena Gomez as Mavis. In smaller supporting roles are Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman (as human grandparents Linda and Mike), Dana Carvey (as Camp Counselor Dana), Fran Drescher (as Frankenstein’s wife Eunice), and the most esteemed Mel Brooks (as Vlad).

This another one of those zany, hyper, and yes, predictable animated films for the juvenile set, ultimately not too memorable. Despite the illustrious cast of comics though, the big laughs in this film are only few and far between. At most, a smile or a little chuckle here and there are all you get. Despite some disturbing scenes of apparent child endangerment in this film, you know this is all done in the spirit of silly fun and nothing bad is really going to happen. 5/10.

Review

Sometimes you don’t need a film to try and change the world, make bold political or societal statements or even be shocking. Sometimes it’s good enough to be an audience member who can just sit back, relax and enjoy the show… and smile. That’s the kind of movie you get when you sit down to enjoy “The Intern” (PG-13, 2:01).

Robert DeNiro plays the title character, a retired 70 year-old widower who has become bored with his life. After 40 years in the business of printing telephone books and then losing his beloved wife of 42 years, he did his best to adjust to his new life, and it worked – for a while. He traveled the world and engaged in a wide variety of physical and intellectual pursuits to keep himself occupied, but it wasn’t enough. When walking the streets of his native Brooklyn, he sees a flyer for a senior intern program at a young, but burgeoning internet clothing company. Ben feels that learning more about technology and working with young people feels like just the challenge he needs to occupy his mind and his time. He applies, via a terrific self-made video (the company’s requirement), and sits through a series of amusing interviews with company employees young enough to be his grandchildren… and he gets the internship.

Ben ends up working directly for the company’s very capable, but over-extended founder, played by Anne Hathaway. The senior intern program was her idea, but Jules is initially hesitant to deal with Ben personally on a daily basis. She’s a perfectionist who’s constantly on the go. She’s difficult to work for and she knows it. She loves and respects all 220 of her employees, but her motto might as well be “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.” Yet, it’s hard to resist Ben’s earnestness, strong work ethic and wise, calming presence. After a little awkwardness as Ben and Jules both try to figure out how he can best serve his new boss, he ends up becoming her driver. In this capacity, he gets to know Jules’ stay-at-home husband (Anders Holm), their precocious, but adorable young daughter (JoJo Kushner) and, most importantly, Jules herself, in all her earnestness, anxiety and vulnerability.

It turns out that, at this stage of the game, Jules needs Ben’s wisdom and support more than she’d be willing to admit – to him or herself. Her company is growing so fast and she’s so hands-on that one of her assistants (Andrew Rannells) tells her that the investors would like to see her take on a CEO. This would lighten her load, but it would also mean effectively giving control of her company to someone else. She half-heartedly interviews people to be her potential boss, not sure that this is the best move, but wanting to do right by her employees and her marriage, which is starting to suffer due to the demands of her very busy schedule. In the midst of all this, Ben becomes a sounding board and occasional advice dispenser for Jules, a very helpful co-worker and kind of pseudo uncle to a small group of the company’s young employees (played by Adam DeVine, Zack Pearlman, Jason Orley and Christina Scherer) and a possible love interest for the company’s full-time in-house masseuse (Rene Russo).

Ben is at the story’s center, but it’s the great mix of interesting characters and subplots that makes this movie so worthwhile. DeNiro has rarely been more pleasant to watch, or Hathaway so winning, as they lead an ensemble cast that complements each other wonderfully. Nancy Myers’ amusing and purposeful script and direction highlight the virtues of women making the most of their lives, but never hits us over the head with her message. Jules is simply a modern woman who’s very likable and subtly inspiring. A scene in which some of Jules’ employees break the law to help her with a pressing personal problem is fun, but seems misplaced, and the resolutions to some of the story’s conflicts seem a little trite, but, overall, this is simply a delightful film that I’d recommend to anyone. “The Intern” isn’t perfect, but is definitely worth having around. “A-”

Review

A movie that’s as stunning and as majestic and as spellbinding as mount Everest itself. Even for many of us who’ve never been to Nepal, just the fact that Everest is the world’s highest mountain requires us to respect it from afar. And I think that’s what this film by director Baltasar Kormakur has accomplished, it respects the story, it respects the nature and it respects the memories of the lives lost during that tragic 1996 expedition.

Baltasar is an Icelandic filmmaker who knows how to shoot a film in such an environment where the weather can be unpredictable and it can go against you at anytime. He didn’t want all of this movie to be shot entirely in a studio, this is not entirely visual effects work, they actually went to Nepal and some of the other locations include Val Senales, Italy. It’s out there in the elements, outdoors locations that force even the actors themselves to leave their trailer comfort zone behind. And that is evident on screen, it really shows, because every single frame successfully makes us the audience feel like we’re there, we feel the danger, as if we’re there climbing the mountain, feeling the pain that comes with excruciating cold because human bodies aren’t design to survive such temperature. I think the timing of the arrival of this movie could not have been more perfect. If EVEREST was made a decade or fifteen years ago, for example, when filmmaking technology and the cameras weren’t as advanced, I’m not sure if it could’ve given us a movie-watching experience of this quality. This is not a heist thriller ala 1993’s “Cliffhanger,” this is an epic survival drama.

Many of us are familiar with Jon Krakauer’s book, “Into Thin Air” since he himself was one of the climbers, but this movie is not an adaptation, because it’s also loosely inspired by other accounts, other books about that same expedition, so in a way, what the scribes William Nicholson and also Simon Beauty and filmmaker Baltasar gave us is a reimagining but one that captures the essence and I think that’s what the actors themselves aimed to do. Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Jason Clarke, all of them play these real characters that have families, some may have personal issues, and so the backstory or who’s waiting for them on the other side of the world serve as an emotional anchor and a driving force. But you only get a glimpse of it, the script doesn’t spend too much time in every last one of them, there are too many grounds to cover, so it provides just enough and then brings the attention back to this whole man vs. nature, this ordeal at hand, all over again, just like one of the characters says in the movie, “The last word belongs to the mountain.” EVEREST movie does make me wonder why anyone would want to climb mount everest, but it’s basically the same as asking ourselves why we do certain things, why we choose to attempt to conquer certain goals, whatever they may be, whether it’s the need to inspire and be inspired, whether it’s trying to escape our problems, whether it’s the love of the climb, EVEREST goes to show that that desire could be both prideful and humbling.

Review

Probably the best film I’ve seen in 2015 so far, along with Mad Max.

Since I’m a book nerd, I did expect much from this film, and I got even more. I am actually not sure which one is better.

There’s a lot of changes for sure, but I consider it to be a positive thing since you get two awesome things, not only one.

Great effects, great cast. A good sense of humor and some high class action. It’s like 10 genres combined in one film. Not suitable for children though, in my opinion. The guy, 25+ years old, that was sitting next to me was scared as hell. Cranks do look somewhat scarier then the walkers in TWD, and are faster and more aggressive.

Comparing to the first film, you can imagine The Maze Runner being a toddler, and The scorch trials being an adult. It is definitely more serious and hardcore.

One more film TST has reminded me of was Snowpiercer, so if you’re a fan you’ll definitely like it.

The only time I ever recall of being terrified of Johnny Depp as a character was in Sweeney Todd and I never thought he could top that performance.

But I stand corrected, his performance as Whitey Bulger is not only terrifying as hell but one of the best performances Depp has ever pulled off! This is the type of the film that makes you want more and more after each scene is done all the way towards the end, and the supporting characters really help Black Mass reach its full potential of hitting the right spots for a moviegoer. Scott Cooper did an amazing job in this biopic he also she be up for best director, Joel Edgerton steals the spotlight in some scenes and bloody nails it in all the screen time he gets. This film also has a nice funny side to it as well which really makes you laugh then BAM all seriousness. By far probably the best film I have seen this year!

Deserves more than 10/10

visceral drug trade thriller pulls no punches in its grim depiction of the cross-border traffic between Mexico and the States.

This time french-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve who gave the viewers a kidnap drama suspense hit international movie “prisoners”. Now coming back to screen with a action crime flick.

Emily Blunt takes the role of Kate Macer, an FBI field agent plunged in the powerful world of a drugs cartel as well as she trying to make her way to get a better rank for herself. She delineates perfectly the emotional conflicts of a woman working with violence and corruption on a daily basis.

*picks from trailer* The opening sequence in which rows of rotting corpses are found in a home in Arizona belonging to the cartel sets the tone for the helter skelter ride to follow in which Villeneuve sustains the knife-edge tension without a blip.

Nobody is who they seem to be, least of all Josh Brolin who suggests that he may be a defence contractor although Kate and her partner (Daniel Kaluuya) believes he may be from the CIA.

Also emerging from the shadows is Benicio Del Toro as Alejandro, an enigmatic figure who is the sicario of the title – in other words a hit-man whom you never where he is going to turn up next or on whose side he will be.

Although the violence is wince-inducing it is never gratuitous in the context of this particular world, where human beings are completely dispensable.

it’s basically a great action thriller movie. A must see

A well-crafted biopic about one of the greatest matches in history. A career-defining performance by Tobey Maguire. Who knew that a movie about a game of chess could be so suspenseful and riveting. You won’t be able to take your eyes off of it.

Director Ed Zwick is the man who gave us “Glory,” “The Last Samurai,” “Defiance,” basically movies that have epic battlefield sequences, so it’s interesting that his battlefield has been scaled down to the size of a chessboard but it’s just as colossal, this is a story back in the era when the whole world was watching which of the two ideologies, United States or the Soviets would ultimately win, tension was running high but instead of bullets or nuclear weapons which both regions did have, it all came down to between Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) and Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber) and even if the movie may or may not want to preach about which is the ultimate victor, it did capture the animosity in the air, so sharp it can cut through glass, the hatred against communism at the time.

Written by Steven Knight, who gave us “Eastern Promises,” and “Locke,” I think Knight gives in to Hollywood’s long-held fascination with brilliance and madness, it’s a lot like “A Beautiful Mind,” where a person is so brilliant that his mind just snaps. Now, I didn’t grow up knowing a lot about Bobby Fischer, my dad taught me how to play chess when I was a kid, but I was terrible at it, which is why I turned to soccer. My point is, I don’t know how out of touch Fischer really was, and this movie itself is not a straight adaptation, but I think PAWN SACRIFICE accomplishes what it set out to do from the start, this correlation between genius and paranoia or insanity.

Mad props to actors Tobey Maguire and Liev Schreiber who, under the direction of Ed Zwick, successfully manage to dramatize the game of chess. Because chess matches are usually silent, so everything heavily relies on the actors’ facial expressions, it’s all in the eyes and the body language in order to understand the game’s intensity. The movie has to also entertain those who may not play chess and so it does, and it’s a testament to the amazing performances by Maguire and Schreiber.The movie also brings up a good point that I think would leave the audiences conflicted. Because we would feel like Bobby Fischer would need medical treatment, but a part of us also don’t want to hinder or get in the way of brilliance, out of selfish reasons of course, because we would want that brilliance to work in our favor. We badly want to see the master play but at what cost.
