Incredibles 2 starts right after the end of the first film. Our heroic family, the Parrs, try to stop The Underminer from robbing a bank. They end up causing more harm than good when the Underminer’s tank causes a lot of damage. They did stop him, but there is still that pesky superhero law that forced them to go into hiding in the first place, and they lose their financial assistance on top of that. With help from their friends, they try to regain the public’s trust.

Kidding

When it comes to one-shot takes on television, it’s hard to top that famous scene from HBO’s True Detective. But the new Showtime series Kidding, which was just given a season two, delivered an impressive one recently that really has to be seen if you haven’t already.

The scene shows a woman (played by Riki Lindhome) transforming her life over an extended period of time after being inspired by the show within Kidding, “Mr. Pickles’ Puppet Time,” which is hosted by star Jim Carrey. The shot, which runs a little under two minutes, all takes place in a small apartment with the camera panning around as we see her life changing. It’s awesome to see on its own, but becomes truly incredible when you see how they pulled it off. As the camera pans the room the crew quickly moves in behind it to change the set, while actors move in and out including Lindhome, who also has multiple wardrobe changes to pull off while making her way to each next shot she’s in. You can see how it went in the video below, which shows the scene next to the cast and crew pulling it off.

Sicario: Day Of The Soldado review

Sicario: Day Of The Soldado
Directed by Stefano Sollima
Written by Tyler Sheridan
Starring: Josh Brolin, Benecio Del Toro, Isabela Moner, Catherine Keener, Matthew Modine, Elijah Rodriguez, Jeffrey Donovan
Theatrical Release Date: June 29, 2018

“Adios,” a hitman ruthlessly tells a helpless man on the ground just before he’s about to unload a ton of shells into him. But before this, the hitman tells the man to put on his glasses so he can see who’s going to kill him. And this is the core of the Sicario films, wanting us to see clearly the violence encompassing us.

The enticing trait that the Sicario films (the first film was in 2015) maintain is their menacing sense of dread and impending doom that looms over them. Steady by steady the films tighten, introducing new dangers that squash previous ones, immediately fascinating its viewers with chaos and acquainting them with a sliver of hell while analyzing the War on Drugs.

Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
Director: Brad Bird
Writer: Brad Bird
Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Samuel L. Jackson, John Ratzenberger, Brad Bird, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Sophia Bush, Isabella Rossellini
Studio: Disney/Pixar
Rated PG | 118 Minutes
Release Date: June 15, 2018

The Incredibles is that perfect blend of fun and nostalgia. It’s that call back to a time where things were much simpler, but there was still a world that needed saving. There was no social media. Fun actually consisted of going outside and getting fresh air. And yet, the themes explored in that film still felt very relevant to the time of its release. Insecurities, loss, family. Everything about it was signature Pixar. Those poignant themes mixed in with a whole lot of fun. And who doesn’t love a good superhero movie?

Flash forward 14 years later. Superhero movies are now all too common. There are those who are worried about superhero fatigue. Some even roll their eyes at the fact that another is released or are shocked that there is a sequel. But not so much with Incredibles 2. It’s the sequel everyone is waiting for. The entire cast is back for this animated feature and with Brad Bird at the director’s helm for a sequel that proves good things come to those who wait.

Check out my full review here below.

Movie Review: Jordan Peele's Get Out

Get Out
Director: Jordan Peele
Screenwriter: Jordan Peele
Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Lil Rel Howery, Keith Stanfield, Stephen Root, Betty Gabriel
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 103 Minutes
Release Date: February 24, 2017

Whether it’s Rosemary’s Baby, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, or Videodrome, the best horror films act as subversive social commentaries, dealing with humanity’s fears on a subconscious level and offering a kind of communal catharsis.

In his 1981 non-fiction book, Danse Macabre, author Stephen King states that the horror genre can “serve as an extraordinarily accurate barometer of those things which trouble the night-thoughts of a whole society.” George A. Romero’s landmark 1968 film, Night of the Living Dead, for example, was rife with racial commentary during the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

Get Out Trailer, Directed by Jordan Peele

A new trailer has been released for the horror movie Get Out. The movie comes from, believe it or not, Jordan Peele, one half of the duo behind the Comedy Central sketch comedy show Key & Peele. He also co-wrote the screenplay for the recent comedy Keanu, in which he starred alongside Keegan-Michael Key.

Peele pulls double duty this time around as both writer and director, his first time working behind the camera. The movie is described as a “speculative thriller,” and it comes from Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions, makers of hit low-budget horror franchises such as Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Purge.

You can read more about Get Out and watch the trailer below.
