Blockers

Blockers
Director: Kay Cannon
Screenwriter: Brian Kehoe, Jim Kehoe, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, Eben Russell
Cast: Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, John Cena, Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, Gideon Adlon
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Release Date: April 6, 2018

**This review was provided to us by Yolanda Machado of SassyMamaInLA**

Don’t let the Blockers trailer fool you – this movie is hilarious and empowering, with a strong message that doesn’t try to preach about sex or virginity in one way or another. Director Kay Cannon’s Blockers is the coming of age comedy I have been waiting for since I was an awkward, teenage girl full of curiosity and hormones, but having media tell me I was wrong for wanting to embrace my sexuality and having to figure everything out by bad advice and a whole lot of mistakes. A perfectly cast trio of comedy all-stars as the parents (John Cena, Leslie Mann, and Ike Barinholtz) and three incredible young women as the daughters (Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlon) make Blockers enjoyable, entertaining and a gut-busting good time.

Netflix's Bright

Netflix is pushing their upcoming original movie Bright hard. And with good reason. It’s a big budget project, directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch) and featuring an impressive cast which includes Will Smith (Bad Boys, Men in Black), Joel Edgerton (Black Mass, Warrior), Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus), Edgar Ramírez (Deliver Us from Evil, Wrath of the Titans), Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad, Neighbors), Lucy Fry (11.22.63, Mr. Church), Margaret Cho (Drop Dead Diva, One Missed Call), and Jay Hernandez (Hostel, Suicide Squad).

It’s a movie you’d expect to see opening in theaters everywhere…if any big Hollywood studios would ever actually greenlight such a strange concept. The movie is set in an alternative history Los Angeles, in which humans live alongside mythical creatures like orcs, elves, and fairies.

Netflix has released a second official trailer for the movie, which you can find below along with a synopsis.

‘Bright’ Trailer: Will Smith Protects LA From Fairies, Orcs, and Elves

Bright movie Will Smith Joel Edgerton

David Ayer knows how to tell a story about cops in Los Angeles. In fact, most of his films are about cops in the City Of Angels. So it comes as no surprise that Bright, his follow-up to Suicide Squad, features Will Smith as an L.A.P.D. officer. But what separates this particular film from the rest is that Smith’s character is partnered up with an orc named Jakoby (played by Joel Edgerton). That’s because Bright takes place in a world where humans co-exist with fairies, orcs, and other monstrous creatures that usually go bump in the night.

Though the two don’t get along at first, they are forced to put their differences aside when a magic wand surfaces, and everyone is out to get it so they can have their wishes granted. Check out the trailer here below.

David Ayer Admits He Should Have Done ‘Suicide Squad’ Differently

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto

Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.

Suicide Squad Review

Aside from the narrative and pacing flaws of Suicide Squad, one thing the film mishandled was the way we saw the Joker (Jared Leto). As much as the marketing campaign hyped the character, we saw very little of the Clown Prince Of Crime. In fact, Leto, who himself was unhappy that there was so very little of him, said he shot enough footage to make his own movie.

Now, a new trailer to help promote the release of the Suicide Squad Extended Edition Blu-ray shows us how much of that Joker footage we were promised, plus a few other scenes that were in the original trailers but gone from the final cut.

Suicide Squad Review

Suicide Squad
Director: David Ayers
Screenwriter: David Ayer
Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: August 5, 2016

Suicide Squad should have been a lot better than this. Much better. Trailers sold us the idea that the film was about bad versus evil, with the bad guys being played by an all-star cast. Then the marketing threw in some awesome music, and the anticipation for DC’s version of the Dirty Dozen only grew. Sure enough, we all thought that this was the one film that the DCEU needed to break the negative streak that it has been on. It has all the right pieces laid out before them to be a great movie. However, maybe we should reserve that hope for another DCEU film because although Suicide Squad isn’t the worst comic book movie ever, it sure as hell one of the most disappointing ones.
