ISN’T IT ROMANTIC (2019): The Thing I Liked…

Isn’t It Romantic is a comedy / romance about Natalie, a young woman who’s become disenchanted with love and mysteriously finds herself trapped inside a romantic comedy.

The good news about director Todd Strauss-Schulson’s movie is that I did laugh and smile a few times. The beautiful city of New York and all the scenes before Natalie wakes up in the hospital are the ones I enjoyed the most. What I like about these scenes is the way Natalie was making fun of romantic comedies. The disappointment then came for me when she found herself inside a romantic comedy, but it wasn’t an especially good one.

The vibrant colours and the humour in the super romantic New York scenes were fun in parts but after a while it didn’t do a good job of holding my interest. Something about Isn’t It Romantic made the movie feel as though it shouldn’t have been the final draft, because if it had felt more finished, maybe I’d have been more convinced by Natalie’s emotional journey and the way it was executed.

Another moment I didn’t find convincing is the actual presentation of the ‘parking lot conversion’ idea. Not that I have any actual architectural experience but as someone who’s been in many presentations, I wanted to buy into Natalie’s idea and visualise it as a good and feasible one during that presentation but it just didn’t happen.

Watch Isn’t It Romantic if you’re so curious. The trailer is pretty fun so you may find that you enjoy the finnished film more than I did.

It looks like 2016 is the year of the western because The Duel is a brand new  one that stars  The Hunger Games co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson…

For this particular movie, I’ve made the decision to look way beyond the highly questionable choice of trailer music and dig down deep in hopes for the best.

I’m getting a little bit of a Colonia (2016) vibe, which isn’t a bad thing. in fact – Lena, the character played by Emma Watson is my current reference for when I need to have courage in a challenging situation. ‘Be brave like Lena’ I say to myself.

The Duel Release Dates: June 24th, 2016 (US)…

The Dressmaker is a fun revenge drama set in a rural small town in Australia. I use the word ‘fun’ because of the dialogue, characters, cinematography and the haute couture fashion and colours of the 1950s.

The character played by Hugo Weaving is the source of several laughs and a definite highlight. As always, the film’s star, Kate Winslet delivers a wonderful performance. The movie’s beautiful soundtrack, courtesy of composer, David Hirschfelder is also another plus.

Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and based on the novel by Rosalie Ham, watch The Dressmaker because it’s good and  you probably won’t be able to guess how things are going to unfold until they do.

Sarah Snook, Judy Davis, and Liam Hemsworth also star. Here’s the trailer for a taster.

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 movie, Independence Day (1996), I vaguely recall a young Will Smith’s famous charisma going a long way to making the film good.

This time round, aliens are once again coming to invade and destroy earth. Fingers crossed that we’ll all be impressed by more than just the special effects.

Release Date (s): June 24th, 2016 (US & UK)…

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 (2015): A Second Teaser Trailer

After last month’s release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 teaser trailer, I thought we’d see approximately 2 more trailers before the November release date. Not so, because here comes, yes, another teaser.

No one is going to blame you if the following thoughts went through your head as you watched.

  1. Whose music video is this? 
  2. Really? Another teaser?
  3. Ok. I want that red suit!
  4. Is white really the best colour for combat gear?

Before deciding to patiently (not so patiently) wait for November, you first need to stop imagining the people in white performing a very impressive street dance routine and Katniss Everdeen lip synching lyrics that include the words, ‘red’, ‘white’ and ‘unite’.

Good luck with that.

Happy The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part 2 🙂
