Movie Review: The Bad Batch

The- Bad Batch Header

The Bad Batch
Written & Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour
Cast: Suki Waterhouse, Jason Momoa, Keanu Reeves, Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Carrey, Jayda Fink
Annapurna Pictures | Neon Films
Rated R | 115 Minutes
Release Date: June 23rd, 2017

In 2014’s A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour showcased her unique style, blending genres while maintaining a minimalist approach. Her Iranian vampire/spaghetti western film earned international acclaim, but also garnered a lot of reviews uttering the phrase “style over substance.” In her latest film, The Bad Batch, she adheres to all of these traits, positive and negative, again. The Bad Batch is at times brutally violent, at times wonderfully poignant, and all together completely bizarre. It’s one of those films where it ends and you kind of just sit there pondering for a few seconds as the credits roll. What did I just watch? Did I love this movie or hate it? The one thing that sticks with me is what I wrote mid-film, “This is like if Mad max f*cked The Neon Demon.”

Spoilers below.

The Farrelly Brothers Bring ‘Dumb and Dumber 2’ To Universal
The Movie God   |  

Dumb And Dumber Header

We found out back in 2011 that the Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly were planning a sequel to their hit 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber with original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, which was later confirmed by the Farrellys. Since then the project has had ups and downs, from Carrey departing the project to Daniels saying it would begin production this summer to Warner Brothers deciding they would not be greenlighting the sequel.

With all of that now in the past, the Farrelly brothers look to the future. After WB decided they didn’t want to make the movie, it was time to begin shopping it around to other studios who might be interested, and at least one of them was just that. Taking to the Twitter, the Farrellys have announced that the sequel, officially titled Dumb and Dumber To, will go into production with Universal Pictures and Red Granite Pictures.

Dumb And Dumber Header

Peter and Bobby Farrelly‘s Dumb and Dumber To nearly fell apart after Jim Carrey reportedly walked out after he felt that Warner Brothers was less than enthusiastic about the seuqel. A few months after, Jeff Daniels quelled some fears saying that Carrey wants to be back, and that production for the long-gestating sequel would begin soon. But that’s history.

The Hollywood Reporter has word now that the studio is dropping the project from its distribution slate, which means that competing distributors are now able to buy the rights for the film.

‘Kick-Ass 2’ Red-Band Trailer: Try To Have Fun, Otherwise What’s The Point?
eelyajekiM   |  

Kick-Ass 2 Header

Kick-Ass started a new generation of heroes who possess no superhuman powers but the passion to project the city. It may not have been the box office smash Lionsgate hoped it would be, but it made just enough for a sequel to be green lit. The thing is, Lionsgate isn’t behind this film any more, nor is the film’s first director Matthew Vaughn. Instead, Universal Pictures will distribute Kick-Ass 2, with Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow steering the ship.

By the looks of the new trailer that has popped up, things haven’t changed for Aaron Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Johnson still plays Kick-Ass, a hero with semi-delusions of grandeur. Moretz plays Hit Girl, a hostile teenager, who acts much older than her age. Their actions have inspired the people of the city to become heroes like them. But Mintz-Plasse’s Mother F***er plans to take revenge on the two heroes who took his crime lord father’s life, by assembling the most bad ass super villains in the city.

Did I forget to mention that Jim Carrey has a role in this film? Hit the jump to see the red-band trailer.

Disney Offering Jim Carrey & Adam Sandler Roles In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Guardians of the Galaxy Image

Considering just how crazy having a large tree or a raccoon on a team of heroes or space outlaws is, I am not surprised at who Disney may be considering to cast for Guardians of the Galaxy. According to Latino Review, the studio is reportedly courting comedians Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler for roles in the James Gunn-directed film. No word yet on who they would be playing, but based on the original report it wouldn’t be Star Lord. According to LR, the two could be playing/voicing Groot – the large humanoid tree – and/or Rocket Raccoon – a character with an affinity for large high-powered weapons.

No word yet on if the offer is for both roles or just one role in particular, but in any case I can guess which actor most fans could feel disgruntled about if he was cast. So for now, let’s take everything with a grain of salt. Nothing has been confirmed, and all that we know is that Disney has an offer on the table.
