In new comedy / horror Little Monsters, protecting young children from a sudden outbreak of zombies is the job of a washed-up musician, a teacher and a kids show personality.

From writer director, Abe Forsythe; key cast includes Lupita Nyong’o, Josh Gad, Stephen Peacocke…

The promise of humour has me interested. I also want to see how well Nyong’o does at selling her character. Then there’s the cuteness of the adorable little kids. I need to see how many of them will cry because I’m almost certain that I’d have been howling immediately.

Kat Stewart, Nadia Townsend, Alexander England, Marshall Napier, Henry Nixon, Rahel Romahn, Jason Chong, Adele Vuko and M.J. Kokolis also star.

Little Monsters Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (UK)…

ARTEMIS FOWL (2020)New Trailer From Miranda Raison, Hong Chau, Judi Dench, Josh Gad, Ferdia Shaw…

Artemis Fowl is the new Kenneth Branagh directed  fantasy / adventure about young Irish criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl II.

Starring Ferdia Shaw, Hong Chau, Josh Gad and Judi Dench, Artemis kidnaps a fairy LEPrecon officer called Holly Short  for ransom; so he can fund the search for his missing father…

The name Artemis Fowl sounded familiar, yet until now, I hadn’t  a clue about this story. It’s a Disney film and directed by Branagh  (Cinderella (2015), so I have hope it’ll be worthy.

Nonso Anozie, Adrian Scarborough, Lara McDonnell and Nikesh Patel also star.

Artemis Fowl Release Dates: May 29th, 2020 (US &UK)…

BEAUTY & THE BEAST (2017): The Thing I Liked…

The last time Disney had a live action movie made of one of their fairy tales, I was beyond thrilled. Thrilled with the trailer, thrilled with the cast list and absolutely delighted with the end result. The movie I’m talking about is of course, Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella (2015).

For me personally, Cinderella was always going to be a hard act to follow. Bill Condon’s Beauty & The Beast is a movie I was also looking forward to. However, to be fair, Beauty & The Beast doesn’t quite have the likes of acting queen Cate Blanchett on the cast list. So you can imagine that my enthusiasm just wasn’t the same. Additionally, the acting and singing weren’t bad but as a non-fan of musicals, all the singing probably didn’t help me appreciate the film more. I really did enjoy the romance towards the end and I think the movie was alright, overall. Without a doubt though, my preference is certainly Cinderella. I imagine that big fans of Beauty & The Beast rather enjoyed this remake of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love. Maybe they even loved it as much as I did Cinderella.

I understand that Aladdin is coming next. I’ll of course eventually watch it even though it is a musical.

Marshall is the story of Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice. Starring Chadwick Boseman, Dan Stevens, Josh Gad, Jussie Smollett and Kate Hudson, director Reginald Hudlin takes us through one of Marshall’s career-defining cases…

I’m excited because Boseman is good and Marshall the man is interesting because of his achievements. Also, what I’ve seen so far in this trailer is reminding me of the undeniable cool factor as embodied by Denzel Washington’s character in American Gangster (2007) – a movie I need to re-watch again soon.

Marshall Release Dates: October 13th, 2017 (US)…

Keesha Sharp, James Croomwell, Sophia Bush and Barrett Doss also star.

A Dog’s Purpose is the latest movie starring Dennis Quaid,  Britt Robertson and Josh Gad. Directed by Lasse Hallsström, we get to tag along on a dog’s quest to find it’s purpose over several lifetimes…

Unless something goes horribly wrong, this movie is going to be a great success – largely on account of the subject matter and sheer number of dog lovers out there. I’ll watch because Gad is great. I’m actually surprised that I didn’t realise he’s the man behind the voice of ‘Bailey Bailey Bailey’ until I read it. I just loved his voice work in The Angry Birds Movie (2016).

Will dog ownership rise after this movie? I think yes.

A Dog’s Purpose Release Dates: January 27th, 2017 (US & UK)…

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE (2016): Fun, Funny, Cute…

Having only played the Rovio game on which The Angry Birds Movie is based a handful of times, I really didn’t know the back story of why the birds are actually angry. The movie makes it quite clear that the green pigs have plenty to do with it. I’m guessing that the whole thing of having wings but not being able to fly probably adds to the rage just a little.

I enjoyed The Angry Birds Movie more than I expected to. The cuteness of the birds, the comedy, the story and especially Chuck, the yellow bird voiced by Josh Gad. He stands out thanks to the funny dialogue and Gad’s comic timing and entertaining voice work.

During the movie, I did get the urge to download the game and play, just so I could hurt those green piggies.

Watch to see precisely why the piggies deserve to be punished. There’s also the cuteness and well executed comic moments to enjoy and of course, that ending!

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE (2016): An Easter Message From the Hatchlings

I know the story of The Angry Birds Movie is generally about Red, the one with the eyebrows, but I’m obsessed with the cuteness of the baby birds, a.k.a the Hatchlings…

May these adorable little cuties feature as prominently as possible in the movie. They may not be on the same level of cuteness as the Minions, but the sight of them is seriously smile inducing.

The Angry Birds Movie is out on:  May 13th, 2016 (UK), May 20th, (US)…

A new The Angry Birds Movie trailer has landed and I definitely like it more than the teaser

The use of Michael Jackson’s Bad seems to fit a little better now, perhaps. I can’t wait to find out if I’ll like this movie more than The Secret Life of Pets released two months later
