The actors who play Deadpool and Nick Fury respectively has banded together to attempt to create another oddball action/buddy comedy who must complete a task and prey they don’t kill each other by the end of the mission. We have seen this so many times on screen and at this point it really just depends on the chemistry brought on by its leads.

On this go, Lionsgate brings you Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson that will have to work together and make it to a court date so that a testimony can put a very bad man behind bars. Reynold’s character Michael Bryce is a top bodyguard whose new client Jackson’s Darius Kincaid, a hitman who has some vital information to a big case in London, England. There are forces that don’t want him to make it to the courthouse and Bryce and Kincaid who have bad blood towards one another will have to settle their difference and huge personalities to make it there on time and alive.

Since 2011, a company named MoviePass provided a service to all its customers to bring them back to the movies. For a monthly charge, you had the opportunity to go to the movies once per day. For any movie watcher like myself that likes to go to the movies all the time benefits from this deal because ticket prices continue to rise and it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop anytime soon. Most theatres provide updated seating, hot foods other than simple concession snacks, and in some theatres, they are allowing alcohol that you can purchase before your movie or in some cases allows you to take it with you while you watch your movie.

Annabelle: Creation is A Wonderful Addition to the Conjuring Franchise

AnnabelleCreation2

David F. Sandberg, the one responsible for the movie Lights Out, directs the sequel/prequel to the hit movie Annabelle with Annabelle: Creation. Sandberg did a wonderful job with Lights Out with very unique tactics and scares differ from the typical jump scares you see in most movies. To be able to scare veteran horror movie watchers is a skill and with this latest film, this is proof that Sandberg has what it takes.

Annabelle: Creation is a successful follow-up with a direct plot, superb cast, and affective scares. Which means that whether you get easily scared in horror movies or not, you will still be entertaining immensely throughout the picture. Especially to those who are familiar with the character from the previous appearance in the franchise.

Detroit Is Frustrating And Difficult To Watch, Which Is A Good Thing

detroitlineup

Katherine Bigelow brings the true events of the 1967 Detroit riots to the screen and tells the story about the monstrous and terrible act that took place at the Algiers Motel. Whether you know or not what happened during this horrible time in history, Bigelow shows the seriousness and disadvantage black people had during that time and place. It is intense to see the riots escalate and also difficult to witness on screen the point of no return that will probably stick with me for a long time.

Atomic Blonde Adaptation Impresses With Epic Fight Scenes

Coldest City, The

Charlize Theron succeeds in bringing another strong female character to life in this action-packed adaptation of the graphic novel “The Coldest City” in Atomic Blonde. Theron, who says she performed all her own stunts, sports the blonde hair like a trophy just as good as Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde back in 2001. This movie packs a punch literally as her skills in combat are front and center in her mission to solve the murder of a fellow agent and stop from a list of double agents in the MI6 during The Cold War.

The story is told through flashbacks The Usual Suspects style interrogated about the days leading up to her briefing on what happened on her mission. Looking pretty beat up as she is being questioned gives the impression that this mission was not an easy one and that assumption is true. Director David Leitch provides amazing action sequences and fight scenes to keep your attention and leaves no room to call shenanigans. Each time you see a punch, a kick, a throw, a gunshot is clear to see and looks painful. You start to wonder if they did take a few punches during filming. Superb fighting choreography in my opinion.
