BABY DRIVER (2017): The Thing I Liked…

Baby Driver (2017), Ansel Elgort.png

Baby Driver, an Edgar Wright written / directed action movie about a young getaway driver, one who is forced to take part in a heist that’s doomed to fail isn’t a bad film. I just didn’t love it.

The film’s style is fun, the music is loud and fun, especially if you like the songs. The whole production stylistically is quite the achievement and it’s adequately entertaining. Nevertheless though, for me personally, I found it quite forgettable. This is partly because I’m not quite the key target market. I feel that there was room for the story to work better. For example, without spoiling anything, my biggest issue with Baby Driver is the main ‘change of heart’ at the end. I just didn’t buy it for the character involved.

What I liked most about Wright’s movie is the moment (s) when Elgort’s character starts to run. After all, I have always been quite partial to a good running sequence.

Baby Driver, watch it if you’re so curious.

In Welcome To Marwen, Steve Carell plays the victim of a brutal attack, one who finds a unique therapeutic outlet to help him through his recovery.

Janelle Monae, Leslie Mann, Eiza González and Diane Kruger also star, while Robert Zemeckis directs…

I’m in for all the things that make this movie special, including Carell’s likely notable performance and all the hardwork that made the dolls / figures possible. I’m also looking forward to finding out how Carell’s character’s coping method is characterised psychologically.

Welcome To Marwen Release Dates: November 21st, 2018 (US); January 11th, 2019 (2019)…

ALITA – BATTLE ANGEL (2018): New Trailer From Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Eiza González, Rosa Salazar…

Directed by Robert Rodriguez, co produced by James Cameron and starring Christoph Waltz, Rosa Salazar, Jennifer Connelly and Eiza González, Alita – Battle Angel is an action-packed story. One set several centuries in the future and about hope, love plus empowerment.

The protagonist played by Salazar is a young woman’s journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world…

Nice trailer. How absolutely beautiful was that moment when Ed Skrein’s character got smashed? I just can’t wait to see all the visual effects come together.

I’m going to confess that as soon as I saw James Cameron’s name, I couldn’t help but think ‘So this is why the next Avatar movie is delayed?’ I’m quite sure that’s nonsense but you understand.

Another thought that crossed my mind is, ‘Why do Alita’s eyes have to be so large?’ Perhaps it’s explained in the manga series that I’ve never read. Perhaps.

Michelle Rodriguez, Jackie Earle Haley, Ed Skrein and Jorge Lendeborg Jr. also star.

Alita – Battle Angel Release Dates: July 20th, 2018 (UK & US)…
