Movie Review: Baby Driver

Baby Driver Header

Baby Driver
Director: Edgar Wright
Screenwriters: Edgar Wright
Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx
Distributor: TriStar Pictures
Rated PG| 113 Minutes
Release Date: June 28, 2017

Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver can be best described as a musically charged gangster film full of colorful zany characters all looking to make a big score. If Wright could write music – and he probably could – they would look, sound, and feel like this movie.

While recent car chasing heist flicks have been focusing on the big action set-piece spectacle that may look spectacular but lacks spirit and heart, Baby Driver proves that you don’t need to jump out of planes (be it exploding or not) to be hip and cool. You just need a driver, the girl of your dreams, music, and the road to travel to some unknown destination.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Starbucks Pranks

We’re just a little over a week from the launch of the first movie in Sony Pictures’ latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming, this time with a little help from Marvel.

To help promote the movie a fun little prank was set up, as is quite the popular viral marketing technique these days. For this one, customers at a Starbucks in New York City are first confused when the barista calls out Spider-Man’s name for an order, and then surprised when Spidey himself drops down from the ceiling to pick it up. There’s even a cameo from a familiar face.

Check out the video below.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

The Conjuring Header Image

Now that the franchise as a whole is going by the name The Conjuring Universe, we knew it was only a matter of time before The Conjuring 3 would be on the way. The first two movies making over $638 million worldwide combined probably helps as well.

It’s being reported that New Line Cinema has hired The Conjuring 2 writer David Leslie Johnson to work on the script for the trilogy-maker. James Wan, who directed the first two movies and was also a writer and producer on the second installment, is expected to be involved in the project, though the report says he’ll likely produce this time with a new director brought in.

“You haven’t got a prayer…”

Directed by Cuban-American filmmaker Camilo Vila (Resurrection Blvd.), 1988’s The Unholy is a cheesy ’80s ripoff of ’70s “prestige horror” films like The Exorcist, The Omen, and The Sentinel. Now available on Blu-ray thanks to Lionsgate’s Vestron Video Collector’s Series, this demonic possession flick is concerned with Catholic priests, young and old alike, doing spiritual battle with a sexy-but-demonic force.

Star Wars Han Solo header image

Though the Star Wars spinoffs are meant to expand on the universe, they aren’t without problems. Director Josh Trank was let go from the now in limbo Boba Fett film, and Gareth Edwards‘s Rogue One had to go through extensive reshoots with the help of Tony Gilroy. Now comes Phil Lord and Chris Miller being fired from their duty as directors of the still untitled Han Solo film over creative differences. The two were soon after replaced by Ron Howard. But it is why they were fired and the timing of it all that has many of us fascinated about what was going on behind the scenes. More on the story below.

Jurassic World title card

The Jurassic World sequel will no longer go by a generic numerical title. Instead, the J.A. Bayona-directed film will be called Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

We’ve heard that the film will be more terrifying than any of the previous Jurassic installments. But as the poster indicates, it seems Jurassic World is going to be doing more burning than scaring. But let’s not draw early conclusions from a mere teaser poster. More on the story below.
