Great news! Daniel Kaluuya and Mattel are teaming up for a new Barney movie!
I hate you
You hate me
We're a dysfunctional family
With a great big club
Knock him to the floor.
No more purple dinosaur.
Zombieland: Double Tap
I was leery of this one, as some sequels really sh* the bed (Anchorman 2, looking at YOU specifically). I was wrong, and I loved being wrong. It kept the spirit of the first one, It was very entertaining, I actually guffawed a couple times. The blonde (shown in the trailer) NAILED her performance. I f*ing wanted to shoot her within 30 seconds (if I'm being generous). It was a "mind asplode" experience.
The other new characters in the story were solid, it's just a rip-roarin' movie, as I hoped it would be. And with sequels, that is the least I can ask, and they surpassed it.
And I heard the parody like this:
I hate you, you hate me. Barney gave you HIV, it started with a kiss but then he wanted more. You got raped by a dinosaur!
The Killing Fields
Worth a go
A Simple Favor:
Stephanie is a single mother with a parenting vlog who befriends Emily, a secretive upper-class woman who has a child at the same elementary school. When Emily goes missing, Stephanie takes it upon herself to investigate.
This is a total two-faced movie. Some moments are brilliant dark comedy, and other moments are pure Lifetime Channel unadulterated sh*. I can honestly say that the only reason I stuck with it, is because it kept hooking me in as to what is the next twist, and I knew it was going to be a train wreck, but it'd be a fun train wreck. I just had to see how it all played out.
IF you want to take a chance on it, make it a Saturday afternoon time-killer, as I did. You won't feel as guilty. Every time you see hope in this movie, that hope is stomped out in the next few minutes. Repeat.
The final Star Wars IX trailer will feature on Monday Night Football this week and then tickets will go on sale as soon as it airs. Also, AMC has announced that on Wednesday 18 December a marathon of all nine films will begin at select theaters, with Episode IX capping it at 5pm on Friday 20 December - an hour before the scheduled debut. In all the marathon will be over 27 hours.
Yeah but the story itself was just awful. Too many attempts to be clever by having weird story changes and twists and WAY too much of "If we try and make every character both good AND somewhat off kilter we will get more people to like this cliche ridden piece of crap script" for its own good. Whoever wrote it put in no real effort to be witty or creative until it became obvious the script was crap and then they tried to add a bunch of pathos that made almost no sense.
If anyone but Blake and Anna had been in the film it would have disappeared without a trace but they try their butts off to make the film at least watchable.
Alls I knows is a girl from my high school class was in that movie.
In this The Big Short (2015)-esque dramedy based on the Mossack Fonseca scandal, a cast of characters investigate an insurance fraud, chasing leads to a pair of a flamboyant Panama City law partners exploiting the world's financial system.
Oldman, Banderas, and Streep?! Oh, my! Very entertaining movie, I thought it was great writing, and the styling of the movie was well done. I'm liking Banderas more and more in his more recent roles in movies, and have always been a fan of Oldman and Streep. Definitely recommend.
Driving cross-country, Ray and his wife and daughter stop at a highway rest area where his daughter falls and breaks her arm. After a frantic rush to the hospital and a clash with the check-in nurse, Ray is finally able to get her to a doctor. While the wife and daughter go downstairs for an MRI, Ray, exhausted, passes out in a chair in the lobby. Upon waking up, they have no record or knowledge of Ray's family ever being checked in.
Decent suspense movie. You think you have it figured out, and then you don't. Then you do again. Then you don't. Solid ending, and many times these sorts of movies leave you disappointed because it's a lazy ending, or a too-obvious ending. This movie presents just enough possibilities to keep you guessing until the end.
A murder investigation of a slain businessman turns to clues found in an author's book about an eerily similar crime. Based on the 2008 article "True Crimes - A Postmodern Murder Mystery" by David Grann.
Bordered on "too arty" for me, but never crossed that line. While I dislike Jim Carrey overall, he's good in this. Some nice twists and head games, I will say it wastes no time in getting the R rating, I was rather surprised they didn't go the unrated route/got the R rating. It's a dark movie, not for everyone, but worth a shot.
