MA

 

                  

 

 

For the movie “Ma” the thrills come in with a cheap nickel. A horror movie split between sympathy and campinism. The movie keeps you in your seat as the woman with the suspicious grin struggles to keep it together. But with all that being said the film shows itself to be a bit on the shallow side than it promises to the audience. One of the penalty flags about this film is the fact that its kind a draggy boring start off, We get it but the script plays it kinda very vanilla type by landing its focus Erica and her high school aged daughter Maggie trying to settle in a town the mother grew up in located in a town in Ohio. The focus of the movie at that point seemed a little off by giving the audience an idea really blandish about how new girl from another state is peer pressured by schoolmates love their popular selves.

Sue Ann drops into the lives of Maggie and her now new friends by passing them by a store and agrees to buy them what they asked her for, a little booze.She has a old schoolish haircut and clinic scrubs but somehow gains the kids respect quick. I believe its kind of odd that later on the teenagers did not find it weird when a cop comes to break up their party, Sue Ann is probably Sue Ann who reported this. That’s not the last time the movie shows laziness in the screenplay: you really are not buying the fact that a bunch of teenagers find it cool to chill out in some lady’s basement, or that some really pissed off civilians wouldn’t just stop Sue Ann themselves ounce they see the news paper stating that a local woman is charged with hosting Alcohol party, with under aged kids.
One way cheap way the director tries to show danger is on the way in this movie is by simply shows Ma’s viewpoint, which concerns her vet life ( which is getting yelled at often by her grouchy boss). Ma begins staring into space while stalking on Facebook.

The movie tends to have some baked top moments when Ma has flashbacks of when she was in school and went through some traumatizing bullied moments that her classmates made her go through.And the director was aiming for the audience to feel a bit uneasy during these moments. Soon Sue Ann is treated like a servant by the teenage kids, giving her the name “Ma,” throwing loud parties in the basement while she is serving the teens shots of liquor. This makes Sue Ann feel excited of the fact that she is needed and popular, some of the things she never felt going to high school.Then Ma starts to push things awkwardly a bit by poping up on campus where the teens are and asks them to come party on a school day. shes persistent but beginning to be a bit much for these teens. Sue Ann starts piecing the teens together with the ones who traumatized her in school.Then the movie flips the switch slightly,just a little as Sue Ann simply chooses to start wreaking chaos. Leading to the horror part of the film by silvers who breaks a very important rule that Sue Ann has and that is to never go upstairs.

John Wick: Chapter 3-Parabellum

                 

This movie has a number of exciting passages, what I’m really loving about the film, is who it’s written and directed by. John Wick is in the hands of some really talented filmmakers, who have great vision for their movies and extraordinary style. John Wick who is played by talented actor Keanu Reeves is somewhere in a Library looking for this specific book, And of course gets interrupted by someone trying to kill him, out of let us say ten thousand. But its something that John does with that book that has incredible detail which the directors thought of while mixing their magic. We were getting to know John Wick in the first chapter, he was a member, well a former member of this assassin group and his wife passed. And when some cowards came and killed the last thing his wife left him, which was his dog, he got fed up and went back into action. In the second chapter, John was still caught up a bit in the world that he put behind him.

ends up taking out a member of the high table at a hotel for assassins to considered to be safe ground, John, of course, violated that rule and now basically has a contract on him starting at $14 million, man, that’s a lot of dineros. With that going on, Wick comes up with a plan to travel to morocco hoping to find the high tables secret leader and make amends for his actions against the rules of the organization. John does get some help from individuals from the past who owes a few favors. While John is in Morroco on his mission to find the secret leader. things get a little interesting in New York, As Adjudicator played by Asia Kate Dillion is upset and wanting to punish a few people for trying to help Wick.Viewers thought that when the first John Wick was released that it would be a regular, same high flying combat movie, repeated. The filmmakers really proved the audience wrong on this one. The John Wick series is simply brilliant art, And they couldn’t have picked anyone better than Keanu Reeves, who showed amazing talent to the series.

As far as for which of these three amazing movies be labeled as the best of the series so far I wouldn’t say chapter 3 is the best one, but it definitely holds its own weight. Where this film does stagger just a bit, and I think the audience would agree is the further world-building attempts man. For example, let’s take the villain, The Adjudicator very very interesting character. But from her presence on screen is like blahish nothing come out of it, just saying. The audience can agree that she’s ok but just does not match up with the franchise role players from the previous movies. But on another flip, The movie does make up for that little stagger. Reeves, I’m pretty sure viewers can admit is what brings the special ingredient to the franchise every single time. With the ability to take the smallest bit of dialogue and make it feel like a thousand. Like you are guaranteed to have a laugh during the fight scenes, And did I mention the dogs, go watch any fighting style movies featuring any dogs, and it will have nothing on the dogs in this John wick movie, Guaranteed.

Long Shot

          

 

 

There have been a couple of movies out there that speaks on the state of America. weather they are straight forward or they hide behind the bush a little bit. You can definitely see it in the brilliant way that Jordan Peele approached it in the movie “US” and a couple of other good ones. Jonathan Levine brings us the same topic, in a amusing comedy movie. Viewers of this movie must agree that it is definitely one of the best comedy movies to hit the big screen. this film is one to please the crowd. Basically we have a television star that kicks back in the white house.

While this female candidate has to adjust her character to gain victory for an electorate. The director did an amazing job but stars Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen basically carry this movie with the incredible acting they put into this film. Fred Flarsky played by Seth Rogen is a journalist who is pretty much well known for the risks he takes and dropping curse words in headlines. At one point at the beginning of the movie, in order to get a story, Fred was willing to tattoo about Swastika. The key to Fred’s character is his pride of being a journalist.

The publication that Fred writes for gets bought out by Parker Wembley, a media big shot played by Andy Serkis. Fred hangs out with his friend lance played by Oshea Jackson Jr, after packing up his things from the now previous job. Feeling really discouraged because of the fact that it was a career that Fred really had a love and ongoing passion for. Fred and lance attend a fundraiser where he happens to spots Charlotte, she used to babysit him and she is also the secretary of state. what a coincidence.

The guy who is a TV star and just kicked back at the white house as we mentioned earlier, wants to continue his movie career and is simply tired of leading the world. And he won’t be running. Charlotte gets that word from president Chambers himself played by Bob Odenkirk, This is a good situation for Charlotte as it leaves a spot available for her to run. June Diane Raphael plays as Maggie, who is helping Charlotte with her image in positive hopes of getting her elected. she definitely does a good job at that. To pick up support for a vision that she has, Charlotte decides to go on tour. She gives the guy she used to babysit years ago a chance of employment to help her with the speeches that she has to deliver. This brings them close.

The chemistry these two shows on screen seems like its so natural. They both teach each other some very important things about each other along the way. Charlotte teaches him that its more to care about than his opinion and in return Fred teaches her to discover her voice once more. Remember us saying that the two stars basically carry the movie, here’s how. Its been a while since seth played a role like the one he plays in this movie, and in between that time, let us just say, his acting improved tremendously. Rogen definitely played his part, but so did Theron who proves again that her skills are incredible on the big screen, pretty sure the viewers agree when I say I don’t think its a movie role out there that she cant do.

Shazam!

                    

The audience can agree that at one point in time most of us wanted to be a superhero, experience having all those powers, do what regular people can’t do, and most of all fight evil and crime, yea, the good old days. That was the mind of a real superhero fan. its an imagination honored by the movie Shazam. you kinda hoped that Shazam would’ve come with a little more glint tho. “Shazam is more so about the family, way before all of the villains and the heroes and all of that. Teenager batson played by Asher Angel causes a big bother to social workers and goes on to prank some philadelphia police. Victor and Rosa played by Cooper Andrews and Marta Milans are foster parents and they welcome Batson to their home, the family is pretty energetic. Other members of the fam include Eugene whos seriously addicted to playing entertainment systems and also theres Darla, who is very intelligent and DC superfan Freddy played by Jack Dylan Glazier, who Batson shares a bedroom with.

Batson’s main mission is to break free and find the parent who years ago, left him abandoned, even with all the great foster family that he surrounded by, the mission still stands. One day Batson is escaping some bullies and transports to The Rock of Eternity, the lair of the wizard, shall we say Wizard Shazam. He’s a pretty serious wizard, one might add. But he feels the kid Batson is pure and decides to give the kid powers. So now Batson turns into a typical looking superhero with a cape and spandex every time he says the wizard’s name.

Freddy helps Batson figure out a whole bunch of superpowers he no idea that he had. Someone else has found a way into the cave of the wizard, and that guy would happen to be Thaddeus Sivana played by Mark Strong. Sivana had his own childhood problems and like the teenage Batson has his own similar powers as well. But when Thaddeus discovers the powers that Batson holds, he is on a mission to find him. sure the audience can agree to the fact that Zachary Levi does not do to well of a job acting out the role of having a teenage mind when Batson turns into Shazam.

The movie at times can be a little extra, but I think that’s what the filmmakers intended to do after a couple of the earlier foster home bonding scenes. A couple of stand out moments, and a couple of favorites in ” Shazam” would definitely have to be when things went a little insane when Sivana made his way to a meeting. And when Batson figures out that he can’t be hurt by bullets and asks the robbers of the convenience store to shoot him, that scene was hilarious, not too much, but you got some giggles out of that. The first half of the movie was without a doubt unpredictable. The director of shazam knew exactly when and where to throw his special ingredients in the film, From Sarvini bringing that gloomy type of creepiness on the big screen to the well put together cast, with those all those ingredients mixed just right, David F.Sandberg brings us an amazing movie.

Captain Marvel

                    

The very first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to hit the big screen. With the center of the universe being a woman superhero by the name of Captain Marvel. This film is set around the midish 1990’s. crazy thing is the movie gives a feel as if it were really filmed around that time, not sure if that’s a compliment or not. The space intro thing felt too lengthy and dull. And the major action arrangements had a retro feeling to them which makes them a bit unfathomable but yet entertaining, that seems to be the best way to describe it. Ryan and Anna are both co-directors of the movie, They both are well known for their involvement in the indie films world.

Captain Marvel also is known as Carol Danvers is played by Brie Larson, in my opinion, I don’t think they could’ve picked a better actress to fit the shoes of Captain Marvel. Her life to her and to the viewers of the film is simply a blur, as the audience is trying to figure out who she is, Danver is trying her best to remember. Carol often feels like shes captured in numerous worlds where she feels like her belonged card is at a low. On Hala, which is a Kree planet where Carol trains as a warrior and also lives. She keeps being told to not let those negative feelings discourage or get to her. The individual giving her this positive gesture is her mentor Yon-Rogg played by Jude Law, His performance in Sherlock Homes was incredible. Back to Carol, she gets taken as a prisoner during a battle with the shape shifting enemy they call Skrulls. The Skrull army is driven by leader Talos played by Ben Mendelsohn. She figures out a way to escape Talos and the Skrulls and end up on another planet, yep your very own that starts with an E.

She’s somewhere in one of the best cities in the world, Los Angeles. Around this part is when the movie takes us to the old school era, the filmmakers use the slightest details to try and make the audience feel the era it’s trying to imitate. Captain Marvel adapts pretty well, you remember those flannel button-down things the female wore around their waist in high school and college back in that time. Guess who’s doing it, yup Carol herself.
a good scene planted by the filmmaker to get a quick laugh and giggle from the audience. Carol starts feeling like a female version of the “Flyboys” as starts to connect the dots of her history of being a test pilot for the Force.

definitely applause. some of the greatest highlights in the film are When Carol recognizes her strength and courage as she clinches on to memories of the past. Supreme Intelligence played by the incredible Annette Bening, she is Carol’s Mentor, A mystic character in Captian Marvel’s past life, who was also a pilot who didn’t get an equal opportunity because of the fact that she was a young mother, but most of all because she was a woman. But the connection that Carol has with Nick Fury played by Samuel L Jackson is undeniable. they are on a mission to find this cube from space that glows and keep it away from the evil hands that’s on the same mission.

Only The Brave

This movie is a 2017 action drama produced by Lorenzo Bonaventura, Thad Luckinbill, Trent Luckinbill, Molly Smith, And jeremy Steckler to name a few. And wonderful directing work from Joseph Kosinski.The movie has a great cast, we have Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale,Taylor Kitsch and Jennifer Connelly just to name a few. From the $38 million budget the movie only bought in 21. million from the box office. The film is based on a crew of firefighters battling a fire in Arizona. The production of the movie however took place in some places around New Mexico.Only the Brave is a fantastic presentation of the events and the fire fighters who risked their lives on a daily basis. Although it may feel a little slow at moments, I believe this is a film that’s enjoyable much for everyone.

So theres crew of firefighters who are out to become the next crew of “Hot Shots,” doing what they must, which means hiring some talent willing to do the job. The film takes you
into the lives of these guys outside of work and really gives you vision in each one of their jobs. The movie kept you watching throughout each one of the fires, and I loved how the director didn’t make it to serious to the point of depression. With a nice mix of bickering and action, these characters were more likable than I thought they would be, which i believe added a level of intensity to the film. It really is the fact that the films director but together a great cast that really makes you feel for them when the movie really started to get good. I was not familiar with the true events about these fire fighters, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the finale of this movie.

Although I feel there are some unexpected parts about it, I feel as though it respected the families involved in the real events. In multiple ways the final act of this film had a lot of surprises. Only the Brave is definitely a slow watch at times and its run time is kind of long and the material of the movie stretches out a bit, but when the movie was slow it also takes its time to get the audience to connect to its characters, so it’s sort of a catch-22. The performances were all around terrific,Only The Brave seems to go a direction that seems to be inspired, and order of events that will have you on the edge of your seat, this is a very good and well-made a memorable movie that I can confidently say will be one of the best films of the year. This movie i must say is highly recommend to everyone to view.

Marshall

 

 

 

 

 

This movie is a 2017 biographical drama film. that i must say was decent. Reginald Hudlin was the director behind this one as well as producer. Paula Wagner and Jonathan Sanger was also behind the producing of this film. Marshall was written by Michal and Jacob Koskoff. The movie featured a alright cast, Chadwick Boseman as Marshall, Josh Cad who plays Sam Friedman, Kate Hudson as Eleanor Strubing, Dan Stevens who plays Lorin Willis, and James as the judge. The budget for this movie was around $12 million but only bringing in $8.5 million at the box office, not to great on that one. The movie was filmed around Los Angeles and also in some areas around Buffalo. To me the movie was decent but it received a mixed reaction from viewers. I guess check it when you get a chance and leave a comment.

the movie is in around the 1940’s. There is this NAACP lawyer by the name of Thurgood Marshall played by Chadwick Boseman who travels the country and defends the people of color who were wrongfully accused. After returning back to the new york office he is then sent to Connecticut to defend a chauffeur by the name of Joseph Spell who was accused of raping his white employer Eleanor Strubing. This case caught attention of news papers. In Bridgeport, Marshall was admitted to the local bar against his will. Later at a hearing the judge, judge Foster who is a friend of the prosecutors father agrees to admit Marshall but Marshall cant speak during the trial. Which now makes someone else be Lead Counsel for Spell. Now Marshall must help guide the lead counsel through notes.

Spell is letting Marshall know that he never did anything sexual with Strubing. Marshall and lead counsel Friedman investigates the story that Strubing says that Spell did to her and wondering why some of the story does not add up. Spell is interested in a plea bargain offered by willis,but Marshall is against this idea. Later on someone testifies and has evidence that they found some of Spells skin under Strubing’s fingernails and Strubing testifies as well. Marshall and Friedman then goes to confront Spell and Spell then reveals something to them, you must watch to see what this confession is about. Later on at trial Spell testifies that it was someone who Strubing knows that abused her. He said that on that night he went to Strubings house to see if he can get a salary increase and also stating that Strubing was wanting to have sex with him. The movie was ok,definitely a go see.
