Will Arnett, Ben Schwartz, Geraldine Viswanathan and Terry Crews are the cast of Rumble. An animated comedy set in a world where monster wrestling is a global sport and monsters are superstar athletes.

Directed by Hamish Grieve; Viswanathan is teenager Winnie who decides to coach a loveable underdog monster (Arnett) so he can become the new champion.

It’s definitely Arnett’s voice and the humour that are the main reasons I want to see this. Hopefully the story will be a great too.

Jimmy Tatro, Tony Danza, Fred Melamed, Joe Anoa’i, Rebecca Quin, Michael Buffer and Stephen A. Smith also star.

Rumble Release Dates: January 29th, 2021 (US); February 5th, 2021 (UK)…

STANDING UP, FALLING DOWN (2019): New Trailer Starring Billy Crystal, Ben Schwartz, Eloise Mumford, Grace Gummer…

The unlikely friendship between a struggling comedian named Scott and his alcoholic dermatologist Marty is at the centre of Standing Up, Falling Down, the new drama / comedy starring Billy Crystal and Ben Schwartz.

Directed by Matt Ratner, additional key cast includes Nate Corddry, Jill Hennessy, Caitlin McGee…

Movies about unlikely friendships are some of my absolute favourites. I recall Schwartz’s work most vividly in Parks and Recreation. Now I’m curious about what else he can do on screen – besides also playing Sonic in the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog (2020) movie of course.

David Castañeda, Leonard Ouzts, John Behlmann, Debra Monk, Kevin Dunn and Wade Allain-Marcus also star.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Sonic The Hedgehog (2019).


A new official trailer has landed for Sonic The Hedgehog.

Starring James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Ben Schwartz and Neal McDonough, this is the Jeff fowler directed story of a bright blue, super fast hedgehog. One who’s in danger of being capture by evil genius Dr. Robotnik. That’s unless he gets the help of small town cop Tom (Marsden).

You may notice that Sonic looks quite different when compared to his appearance in the previous trailer released six months ago. It looks like all the fan complaints about the way he was animated have been listened to. The most noticeable difference I can see is Sonic’s nose. I have to admit, he looks better, right? Definitely cuter.

I’m in for the humour, speed and Jim Carey’s character, – who’s now giving me Will Farrell as ‘Mugatu’ in Zoolander (2001) vibes. I LOVE Mugatu!

Tika Sumpter,Leanne Lapp, Debs Howard, Elfina Luk, Shannon Chan-Kent and Frank C. Turner also star.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Sonic The Hedgehog (2019).


Jim Carrey, James Marsden, Neal McDonough and Ben Schwartz are the stars of new animation adventure Sonic The Hedgehog.

Directed by Jeff fowler, Marsden plays the cop who’ll help Sonic escape government capture so that Dr. Robotnik (Carey) won’t get to do experiments on Sonic.

I really, REALLY enjoyed this trailer. I enjoyed it for reasons including the fact that the movie looks really fun. Then there’s that great 90s nostalgia which is topped very nicely with Coolio’s classic, Gangster’s Paradise.

Last but not least, I’m very excited to see Carey in a role that’s reminiscent of so many of his great classic works, many of which came out in the 90s.

On a side note, Is it just me who half expected Sonic to be voiced by Ryan Reynolds?

Tika Sumpter, Leanne Lapp, Debs Howard, Elfina Luk, Shannon Chan-Kent and Frank C. Turner also star.

NIGHT SCHOOL (2018): The Thing I liked…

Night School, Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish ‘s comedy about adult troublemakers forced to get ready for the GED exam during night classes is not all that I’d hoped.

My very favourite moment in the whole nearly two hour duration of the movie is the beginning. Reason being, that’s when it had the most promise. Unfortunately though, from that point on my interest in the characters just decreased more and more as the film continued.

I definitely think that the movie should have been at least 20 minutes shorter. I like what it had to say about second chances and how instrumental the right teacher can be in getting the best out of seemingly difficult students. Nevertheless, I wanted the film to have my whole attention, without my mind wandering as it played. It’s therefore not as funny or engaging as the trailer had me hoping.

Give it a chance if you’re a big enough fan of Haddish, Hart and Taran Killam Just know that you probably won’t consider it one of their best movies.
