PROJECT POWER (2020): The Things I Liked…

Project Power (2020), Jamie Foxx, Netflix

I had fun watching the down-to-earth take on the human-with-superpowers story that is Project Power. Particular highlights being the fun special effects and good performances, especially by Jamie Foxx and Dominique Fishback.

Centred around a pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes, the first thirty or so minutes of Project Power. is watchable. But it’s once Foxx and Fishback’s characters meet that I sat up and started to pay attention. From that point on the fun continued until the not entirely expected nature of the conclusion.

As someone who has long tired of the traditional superhero movie stories, I welcomed the difference this one offered. So much so that the use of some familiar tropes barely bothered me. I was too busy having fun watching this particular story unfold.

Watch Project Power for a different take on the humans with superpowers story. I’m convinced that there are elements that will likely surprise you, in a good way.

SNOWDEN (2016): New Trailer From Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Shailene Woodley

When I first saw the teaser trailer for writer / director Oliver Stone’s new film about Edward Snowden, I was disappointed that it didn’t reveal a little more than the films title – Snowden and a few facts about the protagonist…

However, I watched the teaser again some weeks later and was reminded that just because I wanted more footage there and then, doesn’t necessarily mean that I should have had it. Instead of being mad at the tease, my imagination did overtime as I began to picture all sorts of dramatic scenes. Scenes with dialogue as engaging as the brilliant as screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s words in The Social Network  Would’t that be fantastic?

Even if Snowden turns out to be nothing like The Social Network, all that really matters is that it’s good. Just as well then that the below trailer looks mighty promising.

The latest trailer for Seth Rogen’s new film, The Night Before is here…

Directed by Jonathan Levine, starring Seth Rogen, Antony mackie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lizzy Kaplan and Jillian Bell, of course it’s a comedy and I already can’t wait. 

I’m just glad that as far as I can tell from the trailer, I can’t see any reason why Sony would have to pull out of releasing this one (fingers crossed).

Release Date (s): November 2oth, 2015 (UK), December 4th, 2015 (UK)…

THE WALK (2015): New Trailer In Which Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Philippe Petitte…

The trailer is out for The Walk, the new Robert Zemeckis directed film based on French High-Wire artist Philippe Petit. 

The international cast is led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and includes Ben Kingsley,  Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz...

What appears to lie ahead is an exciting risk taking adventure. Though I’m not quite sure yet whether I’ll be able to completely suspend my disbelief when it comes to the French accent.

Still, somehow the story of a man who chooses to walk on a wire from great heights and without any safety precautions is probably interesting enough to convince me. That is of course unless I opt for the 2008 documentary, Man on Wire instead.

INCEPTION (2010): Only If Other Films Would Stay Away From The Music

Part of what makes Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010) so very good, is Hans Zimmer’s brilliant musical score.

Unfortunately, since the the film’s release, seemingly far lesser movies keep using it. I say ‘seemingly far lesser’ because I can’t actually see myself ever watching any of the offending titles.

I admit, I’m probably too attached to the original film and music, but all the trailers I’ve seen that use the Inception score really don’t look very promising. If they did, I wouldn’t be writing this.

You only have to watch the following Airborne (2012) trailer to see and understand.

Eeewwww indeed! To help get that gross Airborne taste out of your mouth, here are two fantastic Inception trailers…
