A new trailer for Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and Samara Weaving’s new Dean Parisot directed Bill & Ted movie, Bill & Ted Face The Music just landed and it’s looking like fun.
I’m very much in and ready for this particular brand of silliness. I also rather like that this movie lands in the comedy, music and the sci-fi categories. It seems as though that’s not a thing that happens very often.
Hal Landon Jr., Kid Cudi, Beck Bennett, Brigette Lundy-Paine, William Sadler, Kristen Schaal and Holland Taylor also star.
Always Be My Maybe, a comedy about childhood sweethearts who reconnect after they fell out fifteen years ago is quite funny and features a handful of moving but not too overly sentimental scenes.
As was the case with the trailer, Keanu Reeves entering the frame is one of the best moments for me because, well, it’s Keanu Reeves – but also because his character is funny and the music that plays as he enters the room could not have been more perfect.
The entire cast led by Ali Wong and Randall Park all perform well and the second most memorable moment for me is the lovely speech delivered at the red carpet event near the end.
There are just two things in director Nahnatchka Khan’s film that had me wanting. Firstly, with the exception of the great music that plays when we first meet Reeve’s character, I found a noticeable absence of music in most scenes when compared to other comedy / romance movies. It’s a thing I wished I didn’t notice because it would probably mean I was too busy being fully engrossed in everything happening on screen with the characters. Secondly, this is just my preference when it comes to comedy / romances but, I missed the rhythm, attitude / atmosphere and music that I often enjoy in a J.Lo movie of the same genre.
Even with all the above said, give Always Be My Maybe a chance because Reeves is fun and you may just like it more than you expect.
Always Be My Maybe is a new comedy starring Ali Wong, Randall Park, Keanu Reeves and Daniel Dae Kim.
Directed by Nahnatchka Khan, it’s the story of childhood sweethearts who reconnect after they fell out fifteen years ago. Except now, one of them is a celebrity chef and the other a happily struggling musician who lives at home working for his dad…
I’m definitely ready for the humour, sights of San Francisco, Keanu Reeves in a comedy role, what is possibly a great soundtrack and a story about a woman living her best life; professionally at least.
I’m quite sure that I’m not the only one who was ‘mouth wide open surprised’ and very happy when Reeves showed up at the end.
Charlyne Yi, Miya Cech, Susan Park, Karan Soni, Marcella Bragio, Ashley Liao, Karen Holness and James Saito also star.
Everything that happens at the start of John Wick may not feel as well-put-together story-wise as one might prefer. Reason being, the main focus of John Wick is the fight choreography, stylish shots and shoot-out fun. The story is merely secondary.
Directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, I liked seeing Keanu Reeves as a highly-skilled and certainly well-dressed hitman. I had fun as the camera followed him when he moved around the city of New York, enacting revenge against the people who killed his precious dog.
It’s clear to me now, why before I watched John Wick, the question ‘All that for a dog?‘ came up so frequently for many viewers. The story could have been written in a way that meant such a question never came up at all. But, the filmmakers had other plans. And anyway, the way I see it, the killing spree wasn’t so much about the dog, but rather, everything the precious canine represented.
All-things-considered, John Wick isn’t my favourite revenge movie, but it also isn’t the worst. In terms of good cinematography, the scenes that feature a noticeable light blue wash over the film’s imagery were particularly memorable. I appreciate how the colour of the lights communicate the coldness of the characters and their actions.
I’m quite sure that it’s not just me who kept picturing how good a John Wick video game might look, as I watched the movie. Fans of Shoot-out games, fake graphic violence and stylishly executed action sequence will likely have the best time.
Directed by Chad Stahelski, Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry and Jason Mantzoukas are among the stars of John Wick – Chapter 3 – Parabellum.
This time the Super-assassin has has become the target of hit men and women everywhere, thanks to the $14 million price tag on his head. That sort of thing tends to happen when you’re on the run because you killed a member of the international assassin’s guild…
I can’t wait to see just how fun Stahelski can make this instalment because I’m expecting lots of badass fight sequences, as well as bullets flying around at all times.
There’s also the cinematography; I love the colours, the moment on the horse, Halle Berry’s entrance and how well her character teams up with Wick towards the end.
Anjelica Huston, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne, Hiroyuki Sanada, Robin Lord Taylor and Lance Reddick also star.
Destination Wedding– Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder’s comedy / drama about two unpleasant wedding guests who develop a mutual affection despite themselves is just as delightful as the trailer suggested.
The beautiful destination, the way the dialogue posed some of life’s key questions and how it was all so engaging throughout. These are the things I liked most about Destination Wedding. My favourite moment if I had to pick one is the scene when Ryder’s character gets carried. Overall though, I really liked it all.
In my mind, director Victor Levin’s movie can probably be likened to a dark and funny cousin of Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise (1995).
In conclusion I say, watch it because it’s misery but fun. Fun that stars many ‘props’ and two engaging characters.
