Good Boys

Good Boys
Director: Gene Stupnitsky
Writer: Gene Stupnitsky, Lee Eisenberg
Cast: Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, Keith L. Williams, Will Forte, Molly Gordon, Lil Rel Howery, Retta
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | Minutes: 90
Release Date: August 16, 2019

The novelty of hearing kids curse and them getting into all sorts of serious trouble hasn’t worn off. But it can when the comedy doesn’t stick. So much of Gene Stupnitsky‘s Good Boys, relies on its three leads Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams trying to be funny based on cringe-worthy humor. The trouble is, not only does the film have very few laughs, it lacks heart. As such, they squander a talented cast. My full review below.

Last Christmas

There are many songs that a person can add to their holiday season playlist, and you’d be very likely to find George Michael‘s “Last Christmas” on a lot of them. That same song will serve as the title for Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas, starring Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones, Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians, A Simple Plan).

In the film, Kate (Clarke) is a struggling singer with a troubled past who works at a year-long Christmas shop. Though a series of bad decisions seems to follow her wherever she goes, she finds Tom (Golding), a person who sees through all her flaws and helps her find the joys in life despite her cynical disposition. Check out the full trailer below.

The Hunt

Universal Pictures’ The Hunt, from director Craig Zobel, using a script written by Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse, seemed to come out of nowhere. The trailers revealed that Blumhouse would be releasing another social satire akin to some of their previous films those in The Purge franchise. In The Hunt, a group of elite high-class rich snobs pay to participate in hunting down and killing people for sport. While the premise of it isn’t shocking per se, the film would be released in theaters in the wake of recent racially-motivated shootings. However, it seems that the premise has caused such a political uproar that it pushed Universal to cancel the release of The Hunt. More on the report below.

Movie Review: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
Director: David Leitch
Writer: Chris Morgan, Drew Pearce
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Helen Mirren
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13| Minutes: 136
Release Date: Aug 2, 2019

There’s no denying that the Fast & Furious franchise has been through some crazy things. What first started out as a humble cinematic look at illegal underground street racing has since supped up into a global phenomenon where Dom and his family – a strong theme that courses throughout the franchise – do things like drive cars out of planes in mid-flight or sling torpedos across a large stretch of ice. Oh, there’s also the occasional cars stunts, bone crunching fights, and cheesy one-liners.

But now it’s time for the franchise to venture outside of its wheelhouse with Hobbs & Shaw, the first Fast & Furious spinoff. In it, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), two people who don’t even belong in the same room together much less be paired up on a mission, work together to save the world from a cyber terrorist organization bent on evolving humanity by augmenting them with their technology and purging out the weak. Are these two incompatible people up to the challenge? Or will they let their egos get in the way? Of course they are, and it’s how they reach that point that can be simultaneously fun and infuriating. My full review here below.

Queen and Slim

Universal Pictures has released the second trailer for Melina Matsoukas‘ (HBO’s Insecure) Queen And Slim, from writer Lena Waithe, and starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith. The film centers on a black man (Kaluuya) and a black woman (Smith) who get pulled over for a minor traffic infraction and become the victims of racial profiling. Soon, the situation escalates to a point where the black man is forced to kill the police officer in self-defense. As a result, the two are now on the run, but they also become symbols for the people who suffer the same atrocities of systemic racism. A sort of modern-day Bonnie and Clyde.

Halloween Movie Header Image

Studios don’t need to be in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con to make big news. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple announcement. Take Universal Pictures, for example. They announced today the titles and release dates for the two follow-ups to last year’s Halloween, the semi-reboot/sequel to the 1978 iconic slasher film of the same name.

Horror master John Carpenter posted to Twitter, “The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode isn’t over” along with the announcement video, which you can watch here below.

Good Boys

Universal Pictures has released the latest red band trailer for the Seth Rogen produced raunchy comedy Good Boys. The film centers on three adolescent boys Max (Jacob Tremblay), Thor (Brady Noon), and Lucas (Keith L. Williams) who will do anything to make it to a sixth grade party. Without knowing what will happen at this party, the boys are under the impression that there will be lots of kissing, so they take Max’s dad’s drone, which they are forbidden to touch, to spy on their next door neighbors who they believe is a nymphomaniac.

Unfortunately, this is the first step into the absolutely crazy day that they will have which includes trying to run across a highway, sex swings, porn, exchanging drugs at a public playground, and more. Check out the NSFW red band trailer for Good Boys below.

Cats Clapperboard

Universal has released a first look featurette Tom Hooper‘s film adaptation of Cats. Based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical which was inspired by on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot, the film will feature Lloyd Webber’s iconic music and a world-class cast of dancers, state-of-the-art technology, and dance styles ranging from ballet to contemporary, hip-hop to jazz, and street to tap to present the musical to a younger generation in a whole new way.

I can’t say I am overly familiar with Cats, but based on everything in the featurette, it will be using new tools and technologies to transform the actors into feline forms. Check the video below.
