Blast-Off

An admiring nod to ’60s dream siren Daliah Lavi! American-International leaps into an epic Jules Verne comedy about a trip to the moon, a good-looking but slow and unfunny farce that must squeak by on the goodwill of its cast of comedians. Burl Ives is excellent casting as P.T. Barnum, promoting a Greatest Show Off the Earth.

It’s Obi-Wan versus Fidel! Well, not really. The pre-Bond espionage genre lights up with cool intrigues and comic absurdities, as a Brit vacuum salesman in Havana is recruited to spy for Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The filmmakers and stars are all top caliber, and the location is legendary: Castro’s Cuba, immediately after the revolution.

Love or hate Suicide Squad, it is unquestionably one of the most talked about movies from 2016. Even the most hardcore defenders of the movie can probably acknowledge that there were some serious issues. And those that hated the movie are probably frustrated because it feels like there is a great movie in there somewhere. There were other ways that director David Ayer could have taken Suicide Squad and a YouTuber has given us a video that shows us what it could have looked like had the movie taken more of a horror route.
