The sequel to The Boss Baby (2017) is here, meaning the smart/adult-like, briefcase carrying baby who’s voiced by Alec Baldwin is back.
Also starring James Marsden, Jimmy Kimmel and Jeff Goldblum; in The Boss Baby – Family Business, the Templeton brothers are now grown up and have drifted apart. However, not if a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach has anything to do with it.
Directed by Tom McGrath; additional key cast includes Amy Sedaris, Lisa Kudrow and Eva Longoria.
I’m so glad to see Alec Baldwin back for this sequel. I’ve just recently finished re-watching his great work in 30 Rock. So I’m definitely in for this one. And it helps that the first Boss Baby movie was so imaginative and fun.
As was the case withJurassic World (2015), I enjoyed Chris Pratt’s brand of charm in this J.A. Bayona directed sequel Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom. Yet surprisingly even more than that, I really liked the screen time dedicated to the dinosaurs. In particular the way Bayona’s movie not only told us about the intelligence of the dinosaurs, but we got to see a well executed display of said intelligence.
Another key highlight is the final and unfortunate scenes on ‘the island’ towards the end. Particularly the way it reminded me of how the movie Kong – Skull Island (2017)made me feel. By this I mean both films are fun and thrilling but they also made me sad because the creatures in both movies were either existing / resting peacefully until human interference.
Just like in Jurassic World, in Fallen Kingdom Pratt and Howard’s character’s romantic connection was a plot device that I found myself unenthused by. Particularly because it felt even more unnecessary this time round.
Definitely watch Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom, especially if you liked the first movie. It’s still quite fun overall and even more so if you like dinosaurs.
Written/directed by Drew Pearce; Hotel Artemis is a new crime/action movie set in a near-future riot-torn version of LA.
Starring Jodie Foster, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista, Jeff Goldblum and Sterling K. Brown; the story of Hotel Artemis follows a nurse (Foster) who runs a secret members-only emergency room for criminals.
There’s quite a lot going on in this trailer. Yet no major stand out moments that have me super excited, even though the plot is unique.
I remain hopeful though because of Foster, Goldblum and seriously badass Boutella.
Charlie Day, Zachary Quinto, Jenny Slate and Fatimah Hassan also star.
Directed by Roland Emmerich; starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, William Fichtner, Bill pullman and Maika Monroe, the trailer for Independence Day – Resurgence has arrived…
When I watched the original Independence Day (1996) movie about the fight against an alien invasion of earth, I vaguely recall a young Will Smith’s famous charisma going a long way to making the film worth dedicating two hours.
This time round, aliens are once again coming to invade and destroy planet. I wonder how th estory will fair without a Smith-like comedic presence.
Fingers crossed that we’ll all be impressed by more than just the special effects.
