‘Like Father’ Review (Netflix Original)

Stars: Kristen Bell, Danielle Davenport, Kimiko Glenn, Wynter Kullman, Kelsey Grammer, Brett Gelman, Jon Foster, Elisabeth Ness, Brian McCarthy, Keilly McQuail, Jen Zaborowski, Brittany Ross | Written and Directed by Lauren Miller

Lauren Miller’s directorial debut, Like Father, fits well into the canonical fatigue of the Netflix original, a harsh and sadly true statement that any film on the platform is becoming tainted with. Like Father, I hate to say, is almost certainly dead on arrival with so little intrigue or adhesive to even have a questionable release, made even more disappointing with the talent that’s castrated and simplified in a plot so numb and saturated, you can piece the jigsaw and surprise your friends as a psychic, within seconds.

To describe Miller’s film as simple would be somewhat an understatement. It is to be fair, a constraint of every grain of flair possible with zero ounces of originality within its bones.

Movie Review – Like Father (2018)

Like Father, 2018.

Directed by Lauren Miller.

Starring Kristen Bell, Kelsey Grammer, Danielle Davenport, Kimiko Glenn, Wynter Kullman, and Seth Rogen.

Synopsis:

An estranged daughter has an awkward reunion with her long-absent father on a cruise ship.

Rachel Hamilton (Kristen Bell) is stood up at altar by Owen (Jon Foster) due to her workaholic habits. Her long gone father, Harry Hamilton (Kelsey Grammer), serendipitously shows up on the big day. Comedies by their nature have only a tangential connection to reality but Like Father meanders too often between having fun with the audience and simply misrepresenting itself to the audience.

The film begins with some slight misdirection. Both Harry and Rachel have an unfortunate shared vice in alcoholism. Said alcoholism leads them to, unwittingly, board a cruise headed for the Caribbean in a honeymoon suite setting up some effective comedy. Alas, though, Bell has been down this road before with Forgetting

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Improbable’ Crane Jump in ‘Skyscraper': ‘We Did the Math,’ Says Director

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Improbable’ Crane Jump in ‘Skyscraper': ‘We Did the Math,’ Says Director
The heart-pounding fun of Dwayne Johnson’s “Skyscraper” wasn’t just movie star bravado and CGI for director Rawson Marshall Thurber — it was math mixed with a little but of adrenaline.

“This is a thrill ride — you bought your ticket and here it is,” Thurber told TheWrap. “We didn’t consult with math professors to make sure it made sense, but we did the math with Ilm [Industrial Light & Magic] and we knew we were close. People aren’t buying tickets to see a documentary about a guy jumping a big jump. With any action sequence, you want it to feel believable — but 10 percent more. You want it to be improbable, but not impossible. You want it to feel insane, but not unachievable.”

In the movie, Johnson tries to get into a building that is engulfed in flames in order to save his family. The only way in is to jump from a crane into the burning building,

Paddington 2: three different endings were written

Simon Brew Jan 9, 2018

Paddington 2 had three different endings written, and two filmed...

The beautiful denouement of Paddington 2 isn’t one we’re going to spoil in this news piece, just that it seemed such a natural, warm and lovely place to end the movie. So much so that it just felt natural.

In fact, the whole film did, but that belies an awful lot of wrestling from writers Simon Farnaby and Paul King to get their screenplay into shape. Sanjeev Bhaskar, who takes on a supporting role in the movie, was guest host on the Kermode & Mayo Film Review programme on Radio Five Alive last week, and he revealed that in fact, three different endings for Paddington 2 were put together.

"It changed throughout", he recalled warmly of working on the film. "There were three different endings for Paddington [2]".

"We shot two of them. They went with not quite either of those.

They Should Have Tried Harder To Keep Up With "Mr. Jones"

Choosing to live in an isolated cabin in the wilderness for a year in order to work on your relationship sounds like a terrible idea. It becomes an even more terrible idea when you discover that your nearest neighbor happens to be the reclusive, mysterious artist known only as “Mr. Jones.” But photographer Scott (Jon Foster) and his very supportive girlfriend Penny (Sarah Jones) think that living in an isolated cabin next to an artist known for disturbing, sinister sculptures is actually a great opportunity to make a documentary about Mr. Jones and maybe garner some fame in the process.

Mr. Jones and Me... Writer/Director Karl Mueller Talks About His Debut Film

The creepy new movie Mr. Jones brings a whole new angle to the found footage sub-genre of horror. Recently, writer and director of Mr. Jones, Karl Mueller, sat down with Dread Central to discuss the film.

Mr. Jones (review) is a brilliant looking film, especially on Blu-ray. Mueller talked about how he managed to create such a crisp looking movie. "I’m very pleased with how the look turned out," Mueller said. "Obviously a lot of the credit has to go to my amazing D.P., Mathew Rudenberg. We had a pretty ambitious plan for shooting the movie and not a lot of time to do it in, so Mathew’s ability to move fast but still get it right was absolutely critical. We shot most of the movie on the Arri Alexa, which is an amazing camera. The current wave of digital cameras is particularly useful on horror films

Review: Supernatural Horror 'Mr. Jones' Wastes A Promising Premise

What's distinct about "Mr. Jones" is that it lengthily utilizes three separate storytelling techniques. The narrative begins with found footage, then segues into documentary before closing with a more conventional structure. Given the sloppiness of Karl Mueller's directorial debut, it feels less like innovation and more like an attempt to cover up shortcomings, as if he had the kernel of an idea and only begrudgingly filled it out. Usually you see this in screenwriting classes during workshop sessions. Rarely does it play out on the screen in front of your eyes. We're introduced to dim would-be filmmaker Scott (Jon Foster) just as he's taking girlfriend Penny (Sarah Jones) to a secluded cabin in the "woods" that pretty much just looks like a desert. Having abandoned his life, Scott eventually notes that he "misses [my] TV" and that the nature documentary he had planned was less than fully formed. This does

Exclusive Interview with Mr. Jones Writer/Director Karl Mueller

In Mr. Jones, Scott (Jon Foster) is desperate to make a great documentary. That’s why he moved himself and his other half, Penny (Sarah Jones), to a cabin in the secluded wild. They thought they were alone, but they discover a legendary reclusive artist known only as “Mr. Jones” living nearby. It looks like Scott’s found the subject of his documentary. Too bad it could cost his and Penny’s lives…and more.

With Anchor Bay set to release Mr. Jones to Blu-ray and DVD next week, we recently chatted with Mr. Jones writer/director Karl Mueller (co-writer of The Divide) about his directorial debut.

Karl, thank you for taking the time to talk about your directorial debut, Mr. Jones, which you also wrote. To start things off, can you tell our readers what inspired you to write this story and why you chose to direct it as well?
