American Assassin Fell Under The Trap Of Being A Typical Action Film

American Assassin is a movie based off of a book, so this is an adapted story regarding a tragic event that catapulted Mitch Rapp, played by Dylan O’Brian, to seek justice revenge on the people who caused it. During his quest, the C.I.A. is watching him get closer to his target as well as monitor him strengthening his skills in combat. Cause you know, that is what they do, watch us without consent. Next thing you know due to Rapp’s questioning sanity and a few MMA classes, he is perfect for being recruited to assist the C.I.A. in a mission against a guy who has a grudge against the world and needs there to be a global war to help him sleep at night. Sounds familiar, right?

american-assassin-review

The story unfortunately isn’t going to bring you anything new so now it’s up to the players to make this movie great. Dylan O’Brian is this very talented and versatile actor who is working on numerous projects with everything he’s got. He has done both TV and movies most of the time stealing the scenes he is in. Comedies and action has been his genre so far. This film shows him more front and center and showing his skills as a potential action star. This is a great chance to show what he is capable of and he delivers. I liked his performance quite a bit. Problem is, I HATED his character. This kid is going through some heavy heartache but apparently, it’s a license to basically do whatever you want without consequence. Of course, in movie style fashion, he is the lead, the one going through it so let’s give him a pass and endanger many lives around him. Rapp is a know-it-all spoiled brat with too much red in his eyes and very self-absorbed to root for.

Mother! Is An Intense And Dark Puzzle You Want To Desperately Solve

Darren Aronofsky (Requiem For A Dream, Black Swan). When you hear that name, and know he is directing a movie, you know you are in for some off-the-wall, artistic, unique, and sometimes intense cinematic experience. His latest feature, Mother!, fits all the categories I just listed and much more.

This review is going to be really short compared to my other post because this movie should be seen with the least knowledge as possible. My goal is just to give you a sense of expectation and my thoughts and opinions regarding the film.

mother cast

The synopsis is about a couple’s quiet and tranquil home in the country interrupted by unwanted guests that shake up their home testing the strength of their relationship. The couple in question is Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. Lawrence is renovating their home while Bardem is a writer of poems trying to come up with his next masterpiece are visited by some unwanted guests, specifically Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris. I think the cast is phenomenal in their roles and really deliver the intensity asked for by Aronofsky. There is no question that they will not entertain you on screen. I was really impressed with Pfeiffer’s character particularly and you will see why.

After 25 years, Sister Act Still Brings A Smile To My Face

Sister Act was always a joy to watch as a child. I just loved the singing, the comedy, Whoopi Goldberg, all of it was just great. 25 yrs later, Whoopi brought the nuns from the choir to pay tribute to the movie on her talk show The View. Below, provided by ew.com, is their performance of the last song of the first movie, “I Will Follow Him”. Check it out.

It was so nice to see the sisters back together again. I am still waiting for a 3rd one. Goldberg a.k.a Sister Mary Clarence, shared interest in putting the habit back on one more time for another sequel. I hope they get on that before she changes her mind. 

More interview with the cast on their favorite moments from the film you can also view here.

Who loved Sister Act 1 & 2? Voice your comments below and thank you for visiting my blog. See you at the movies. 

The Rise In Bad Behavior At The Movies Has Got To Stop

Like most of America, everyone is going to the movies to watch the highly anticipated movie IT over the weekend. The movie is excellent by the way but that is not the point of this rant. The purpose is to address a topic that everyone notices when they go to the movies. No, I’m not talking about the 30 mins of trailers before the actual feature. I am talk about the growing rude and obnoxious behavior that occurs at the theatre when the movie is playing.

As I was swiping through twitter, I came across a twitter rant from @sebbyskywalker. He saw IT over the weekend and praised how amazing it was but there was a problem saying, “Good News: #ItMovie is amazing! Scary, chilling, best horror movie of the year. (Clown emoji) Bad News: the crowd I saw it with was the Worst!!!!!! (angry face emoji)”. Reading that reminded me of the annoying few people behind me who were talking almost through the entire movie when I went to go see the latest horror film. They had no objections talking in normal tone loud enough for at least 2 rows behind and forward to hear them. No shame in their game. Not only that, they would kick the back of the seat my friend next to me was sitting in.

Wonder what your kids are doing when they go out to hang out and play with their friends? If you are in Derry, Maine, they are out saving the town from an evil clown out to devour kids. Young kids take center stage in the big fight between good and evil all before bedtime as they face their fears as well as the struggles of growing up in a small town where you’re looking to not only stay alive but feel like you belong.

Relive your childhood fears and for those who read the book and/or watched the TV Miniseries, the memory of The Loser’s Club, seven kids who are the outcast at school who form a bond and friendship that can overpower anything, including a creepy spirit named Pennywise, the dancing clown, played by Bill Skarsgard. As a big fan of the miniseries, there was always a thought in my mind that would wonder, “what would this movie be like if it were rated R?” Sept. 7th 2017 my curiosity was played out on the big screen for me and I couldn’t be happier.

What Happened To Monday Is A Smart And Futuristic Thrill Ride

If I had a dime for every Netflix original series and movie that pops up every month I would be a wealthy human being. The amount of original content on the streaming service just keeps growing and doesn’t plan to stop. While most of them are under the radar there are some that stand out featuring a unique story or involve actors and actresses that we are familiar with. While not all of them are gems, some of them turn out to be really good. What Happened To Monday is one of those gems.
