The Hitman’s Bodyguard Review

15 August 2017 9:11 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

For anyone that loved Cannon Films in the 1980’s and their shlocky, grotesque but strangely enjoyable fare, Millennium Films are still flying the Golan-Globus flag some three decades later. Many of those who worked for the charismatic Israeli cousins during that manic few years through such “classics” as Invasion USA, Missing in Action, Lifeforce and Over The Top, are now part of Millennium and while a lot of their properties share much of its DNA, there’s an air of quality control with the new gang.

Their latest 21st-century Cannon-esque outing is The Hitman’s Bodyguard, another run-of-the-mill action-comedy that has all the hallmarks of being a little bit of a stinker from the off. But it’s with great joy that we can shake off those fears and proclaim the film one of the year’s most ridiculous but unabashedly delightful romps with two stars at the top of their powers. »

‘Fast Times’ at 35: Cameron Crowe, Amy Heckerling on Courting David Lynch, Sean Penn’s Method Acting, Genital Equality

10 August 2017 2:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The seminal teen flick “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” is celebrating its 35th anniversary on Sunday.

Not only did the coming-of-age tale set in Southern California launch the careers of director Amy Heckerling and writer Cameron Crowe, the comedy catapulted Sean Penn, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Phoebe Cates, and Judge Reinhold into stardom.

And in 2005, “Fast Times,” which was based on Crowe’s 1981 book chronicling his adventures going undercover at a San Diego high school, was selected for preservation in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Ironically, “Fast Times” had to overcome many obstacles during production and almost failed to get released.

Among the early difficulties the production encountered was finding a director for the comedy, which also featured future best actor Oscar winners Forest Whitaker and Nicolas Cage — billed as Nicolas Coppola — as well as Eric Stoltz and Anthony Edwards.

Universal executive Thom Mount surprisingly recommended David Lynch, who »

The House review: Dir. Andrew Jay Cohen (2017)

29 June 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The House review: Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler lead the cast of this surprisingly good studio comedy that have you laughing all the way to the bank.

The House review by Paul Heath, June 2017.

The House review

Warner Bros. Pictures take a big $40 million gamble with another big concept comedy with Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler as two parents who must find a get-rich-quick scheme to finance their daughter’s incoming college bills.

Scott Johansen is a regular guy with a good house in the suburbs, loyal wife Kate (Amy Schumer), great daughter Alex (Ryan Simpkins), and just enough income to keep them all afloat. However, with Alex about take the big leap into university life, they are very much relying on their town’s scholarship scheme to fund her continuing education. At a local council meeting in this very small town, it becomes quickly apparent that the townsfolk have »

Are we suffering from Dwayne Johnson franchise fatigue?

29 June 2017 4:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras is suffering from Dwayne Johnson franchise fatigue…

We spend so much time analyzing franchises. That’s mainly because they make up such a high percentage of blockbuster cinema. If you look at the top 10 films of 2017 globally, only two films don’t fall under the franchise tag: The Boss Baby, an animated family film that is as close to the formulaic world of franchises as any movie can get and the Japanese anime Your Name. Everything else is a franchise film fare.

While discussing the bombs of 2017, Baywatch was brought up. The film drowned quickly at the box office and was universally panned. Like any good armchair pundit, we tried to assign blame for the failure. Most attributed the failure to poor marketing or the fact that Baywatch isn’t exactly a brand that audiences were hoping to see adapted to the big screen. The more I thought about, »

Movie Review: Transformers: The Last Knight

22 June 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I’ll get this out of the way now: Transformers: The Last Knight is by far the worst movie of the year, and quite possibly, of the last few years. It’s headache inducing, overlong, incomprehensible, and offensive. I would say that this movie was edited for children who couldn’t keep their attention span focused for more than five seconds, but based on some of the film’s “humor” and language, I wouldn’t recommend any kid seeing this movie. Director Michael Bay has outdone himself here, and this is after I honestly thought the Transformers series could not get any worse after the dreadful Age of Extinction. The new film may be called The Last Knight, but it should also be Bay’s last movie.

I should also mention that I am not a Transformers hater. The first installment came out when I was in the seventh grade and it instantly became one of my favorite movies. Over the years, I have come to accept that it is not a perfect movie, but it is still fun and holds up remarkably well. I was crushed by how awful the second installment, Revenge of the Fallen, was and had given up on the series. The Dark of the Moon was a slight improvement, and you already know my feelings on the fourth film. So, the first film came out at the right age for me and I still love to watch it, but later installments have left me questioning why I ever loved this series in the first place. The Last Knight has left me questioning how we’ve allowed Michael Bay to direct movies for this long.

The Last Knight features the Knights of the Round Table, an evil Optimus Prime, Stonehenge, a re-designed Megatron, an organization called the Trf, and Stanley Tucci as Merlin in a plot so ridiculously convoluted and complicated that makes it Game of Thrones seem as straightforward as a child’s bedtime story. Humans and Transformers are currently not on good terms as humans consider their once robotic allies dangerous, probably because they keep blowing up the planet. Transformers keep falling from the sky in droves and this makes humans wary of another attack. Optimus Prime, who was last seen floating off into space looking for the Creators at the end of Age of Extinction, returns home to Cybertron where he is seduced by Quintessa to help bring an end to the “human race.” There’s a MacGuffin (like there always is in a summer blockbuster) that both humans and robots want that leads to a third-act showdown. There was a lot of chatter the past couple of weeks about The Last Knight’s rumored runtime of 182 minutes long. While that is untrue (the real runtime is 149 minutes) the movie feels like it is well over three hours long. There’s too much going on, featuring too many characters, and too many subplots. I didn’t even mention Sir Anthony Hopkin’s storyline or the main female protagonist’s arc, mainly because it is too convoluted to matter and everything just ends up being blown up so why should anyone care?

This should come as no surprise to anyone who has seen his movies, but director Michael Bay wastes no screen time to develop his stories and even less to develop characters. Bay and his editors think that any shot that doesn’t involve a car transforming into a robot or some other shot with action will bore the audience, which shows their lack of faith in their story and characters. Bay is compelled to bombard the audience with kinetic shots because he knows if the movie stops long enough for people to think about it, it won’t make any sense. This makes for an exhausting experience that is equivalent to being repeatedly bludgeoned on the head with a boombox. It’s nonstop, loud, and makes for a miserable experience. Oh, and the aspect ratio adds to the misery. Someone should explain to Bay what an aspect ratio is.

It’s easy to put most of the blame on Bay, but some needs to get passed onto the film’s writers as well. There’s three credited screenwriters and you can tell that this is a story that was developed by a group rather than a single person. There’s a real difference between movies like this and something like, say, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. That movie was written (and directed) by James Gunn and his unique humor and style are all over that movie. There is no such sense of style or artisanship present anywhere in The Last Knight, which is fine, if it were just entertaining and not offensive. Bay has gotten in trouble in the past over racist and sometimes sexist humor in his movies, but he seemingly doesn’t care. There is literally a scene where a group of women, including her mother, beg Laura Haddock’s character to stop being so smart and just find a guy to date. They refer to her work as unimportant and the only value she will have in life will be determined by who she marries. It’s embarrassing that this movie will be shown on the same screens as Wonder Woman was a couple weeks ago. That movie featured powerful women who were independent and can serve as role models for young girls. In The Last Knight, Bay has a women telling a young woman that her only worth is in finding a man to marry and she should abandon her life’s work. Just imagine Diana Prince putting up with that.

Notice that throughout my bashing of this film, I have not come close to mentioning Mark Wahlberg’s portrayal of Cade Yeager. I am a moderate fan of Wahlberg and enjoy him in comedies like Ted or The Other Guys, but he was terribly miscast in Age of Extinction. He played a failed inventor on a farm, and while there is less farm time in The Last Knight, Wahlberg is just as awful here. It’s hard to blame him because the rest of the acting in the movie is similarly terrible. When Hopkins, who won an Oscar for less than 20 minutes of screen time in Silence of the Lambs, is yelling out profanities and looking at robots like a 12-year-old child, you know it is because of poor filmmaking. Bay has no idea how to convey this ridiculous story, humor, or possibly even worse, his action. The actors are just screaming over the film’s obnoxious volume and none of them ever present any real sense of danger. With all the ridiculousness going around the characters, you would think that Bay would like to add some suspense by putting someone in actual danger. Nope. Instead, we get sweeping shots of Autobots and Decepticons throwing bombs and ammunition at each other. There’s not much any actor can do with that.

It’s become easy to bash the Transformers series at this point, because Paramount could care less what kind of product the series produces. All they see is that Age of Extinction made over a billion dollars worldwide and the global audience wants more of the same. There is no need to invest in writers who develop an interesting story, editors who string together shots that make sense, actors who do more than scream, or more importantly, a director with a more interesting vision. The Last Knight is being confusingly marketed as the last chapter in the Transformers series, which we know is not true because studios love money. This is not only Bay’s last movie (supposedly), but Wahlberg also said he won’t be returning, which is probably the best decision of his career. In the end, Transformers: The Last Knight is the worst kind of summer blockbuster experience, and after Age of Extinction, I was looking for a reason to be back on board Team Bay, but I don’t see myself ever being a Bay fan again. »

Watch Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg Reunite in Funny First 'Daddy's Home 2' Trailer, Joined by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow

15 June 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

A buoyant comedy that pitted an insecure stepfather (Will Ferrell) against the biological father (Mark Wahlberg) of his two stepchildren, Daddy's Home was a bright spot at the box office, earning more than $240 million worldwide after it was released in 2015. No wonder that a sequel was in the works shortly thereafter. Ferrell and Wahlberg had previously teamed up as police partners in The Other Guys and they once again displayed great comic chemistry, this time competing for the affection of the children. The movie was also buttressed by a great supporting cast, led by Linda Cardellini, Hannibal Buress and Thomas Haden Church. It tapped into the contrasting, manic power of the stars and integrated wonderfully ridiculous slapstick, yet it was also warm and...

Coming Distractions: The Daddy’s Home 2 trailer promises even more bad daddies

15 June 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Someone notify Sofia Coppola: Paramount has released its first trailer for Daddy’s Home 2: Twice The Daddys. And while we technically made that subtitle up, it is a pretty apt summation of the movie, which sees freshly forged partners in dad-hood Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell forced to contend with their own fathers, glowering gargoyle Mel Gibson and touchy-feely sweater-wearer John Lithgow, for a Christmastime visit.

The trailer appears to promise the same basic Ferrell-Wahlberg chemistry that propped up The Other Guys and the original Daddy’s Home, even if it’s kind of unsettling to see Gibson’s gruff assholery played off as cool or sexy in 2017. The film is scheduled for a November release, so Daddy-lovers everywhere should probably keep their Thanksgiving schedules clear.

David Crow Jun 16, 2017

In the first Daddy's Home 2 trailer, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell's domestic bliss is upended by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow.

What do you do when you want to make a sequel to your hit comedy about domestic, family-time awkwardness? Well, as according to Meet the Fockers, doing one about the in-laws isn’t a bad idea. And hey, if it ain’t broke… thus enter Daddy’s Home 2, another Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedy that's adding in John Lithgow and Mel Gibson as their respective fathers. This isn’t going to end well for them, but it might still be quite funny for us.

In the new film, Brad (Ferrell) and Dusty (Wahlberg) have put away their differences to becoming a dynamic duo of awesomeness for their kids. Two dads who get along and are quite the team. But when they take it »

Their newfound partnership is put to the test when Dusty's old-school, macho Dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad's ultra-affectionate and emotional Dad (John Lithgow) arrive just in time to throw the holiday into complete chaos.

Mark Wahlberg And Will Ferrell Form An Uneasy Alliance In First Daddy’s Home 2 Trailer

15 June 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Daddy’s Home (again!) and this time, he’s brought a raft of new friends.

Two years ago, director Sean Anders recruited The Other Guys (read: Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell) for Daddy’s Home, a light-hearted comedy that defied expectations to become one of 2015’s sleeper hits. A $240 million haul at the box office was enough to warrant a sequel, and this time round, Wahlberg and Ferrell will be joined by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow, who will play each of their character’s respective parents. Cue the fireworks.

That’s a rivalry that begins to take shape in today’s first-look trailer for Daddy’s Home 2. Indeed, the addition of Gibson’s Mr. Mayron was welcomed by Mark Wahlberg, who hinted that Dusty won’t take too kindly to the sudden influx of competition.

“I thought it was brilliant, the right choice. Everyone was throwing names around for that. »

‘Pirates’ Disappoints and ‘Baywatch’ Sank: Why This Is the Wrong Kind of Record-Setting Memorial Day Weekend

28 May 2017 2:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (Disney) was an easy #1 for the holiday weekend. And considering domestic franchise fatigue, and much stronger foreign results, it’s hardly a failure. (The same can’t be said for the stumbling Paramount and “Baywatch.”)

However, both fell short of even managed expectations. And with some really ugly drops among holdovers, one of the weakest holiday weekends in decades — and easily, the worst in adjusted grosses for the century.

One reason is Memorial Day is no longer the must-have date for theaters, but that’s been the case for years. So it’s no excuse for the overall weakness, which suggests some deep-rooted issues that continue to plague the industry.

The Top 10

1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Disney) New – Cinemascore: A-; Metacritic: 39; Est. budget: $230 million

$62,179,000 in 4,276 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $14,451,000; Cumulative: $62,179,000
