Read my spoiler-free movie review of Tag (2018)


Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson and Jon Hamm are the stars of Tag, a Jeff Tomsic directed comedy about a group of former classmates who organise an elaborate, annual game of tag that takes them all over the country…

Is it fair that I compare every movie about three or more adult male friends having a great time together and being a certain kind of outrageous to The Hangover (2009)? I’m sure it isn’t, but I really can’t help myself.

After watching this trailer, the subject matter of Tag seems a tad juvenile to have me especially intrigued, but what a pleasant surprise it would be if I ended up really liking this film. I love a great comedy and want that to be the case here so I’ll want to give Tag a chance.

Annabelle Wallis, Rashida Jones, Isla Fisher, Leslie Bibb and Hannibal Buress also star.

Tag Release Dates: June 11th, 2018 (US); July 6th, 2018 (UK)…

THE MUMMY (2017): The Things I Liked…

Starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Russell Crowe and Annabelle Wallis, there are parts of director Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy, a story about an ancient Egyptian princess, awakened from her crypt and determined to wreak havoc, that I enjoyed. An example would be Russell Crowe’s ‘second character’ who proved a lot of fun to watch even though he appears but very briefly.

Another highlight is courtesy of Sofia Boutella, an actress who was introduced to many audiences as Gazelle in Matthew Vaughn’s rather good Kingsman – The Secret Service (2014). I adored Gazelle even though she was a ‘baddie’ and I therefore knew that Boutella would bring something special, especially physicality-wise to the character of The Mummy (Princess Ahmanet).

Princess Ahmanet stood out so much for me that all other performances and characters’s mostly paled in comparison. Perhaps her character was just the most interesting overall. What I know for sure is that I found myself genuinely scared of the idea that I might personally encounter the princess as I went about my day. Something to do with the costume design and special effects, as well as Boutella’s performance. There’s also the fact that a lot of the film is set in London, England my beloved city.

There are points during The Mummy when I thought, ‘this is interesting, I think I’m quite excited about the other movies coming from Universals ‘Dark Universe’. Unfortunately though, by the end of the film, I wasn’t so sure because I ended up feeling as though the movie was far more basic in terms of the story, writing and execution-wise, overall than what I’d been hoping for – especially for a Tom Cruise movie. 

On a positive note, I’m now even more curious about Egypt’s real history and I may just delve into that as a result. I may even…

Who am I kidding? I’m busy and far too in love with film to make time for more history books.

MINE (2016): New Trailer Starring Armie Hammer, Annabelle Wallis, Tom Cullen…

Exposed to the elements, battling the physical and psychological toll of being stranded in the desert, Mine is the story of  a soldier who must find a way to survive the very real dangers before him. Writen / directed by Fabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro, Mine stars Armie Hammer, Annabelle Wallis, Tom Cullen…

Most of us can very easily sit quite still, but to stand in one place, unable to move one of your legs? That’s something else entirely. How on earth will Hammer’s character do it? That’s the question.

Clint Dyer, Geoff Bell and Juliet Aubrey also star.

Mine Release Dates: April 7th, 2017 (US)…

Official Trailer

My guess would be that this The Mummy, has nothing to do with the Rachel Weisz and the Brendan Fraser The Mummy of 1999 but I can’t be sure. I’ll be watching because I loved Sofia Boutella in Kingsman – The Secret Service (2014)

Courtney B. Vance, Marwan Kenzari, Annabelle Wallis and Jake Johnson also star.

KING ARTHUR – LEGEND OF THE SWORD (2017): New Trailer From Director Guy Ritchie Starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law…

King Arthur – Legend Of The Sword is the title of  Guy Ritchie’s latest present to passionate film lovers like myself. Starring Charlie Hunnam, an actor better known for hit TV series Sons Of Anarchy, I feel as though this retelling of the King Arthur story has arrived just in time.  For one, Hunnam feels like a brilliant casting choice and second, I could do with a refresher on the story since I barely recall the premise…

I LOVE this King Arthur trailer! The music, editing, dialogue, camera work – all the reasons I fell in love with Ritchie’s talents in the first place. I’d stop writing this post and go see it now if could. Patience! – said everyone.

Jude Law, Eric Bana, Djimon Honsou, Annabelle Wallis and Aidan Gillen Michael McElhatton also star.

King Arthur – Legend Of The Sword Release Dates:  March 2nd, 2017 (FR); March 24th, 2017 (US & UK)…

THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY (2016): New Comedy Trailer From Sacha Baron Cohen & Mark Strong

I’m a fan of Mark Strong, not just because of the bass in his voice – even though it helps. I love Sacha Baron Cohen because he’s a comedy great. In 2016 both actors will star as brothers in the Louis Leterrier directed comedy, The Brothers Grimsby

I’m excited because I’ve really missed and comedy antics of Mr Baron Cohen and looking at this trailer, something tells me he’s not going to disappoint.

Rebel Wilson, Isla Fisher and Penelope Cruz also star.

Release Date (s): March 4th 2016 (US & UK)…
