A chance to relive the carefree moments of childhood again? Of course I’m in! Plus, this trailer looks like so much fun. I’m ready.

Starring Maggie Q, Lucy Hale, Michael Peña and Portia Doubleday, Fantasy Island is a new horror / mystery / comedy based on the popular 1970s TV show about a magical island resort.
Directed by Jeff Wadlow, Additional key cast includes Kim Coates, Michael Rooker, Charlotte McKinney…
My familiarity with the Fantasy Island TV show starts and ends with the knowledge that it existed but this trailer definitely has me interested.
I don’t usually watch the ‘international’ versions of trailer releases, for this movie though, I accidentally clicked on the international trailer first and found myself rather unimpressed. Luckily, the version I’ve featured here is definitely a much better edit, right?
Ryan Hansen, Jimmy O. Yang, Austin Stowell, Robbie Jones, Parisa Fitz-Henley and Goran D. Kleut also star.
Directed by Ben Young and starring Michael Peña, Mike Colter and Lizzy Caplan, Extinctionis a Netflix sci-fi thriller where a father’s recurring nightmare showing his family in grave danger becomes a reality.
What I’d really have loved to write at this point is that the tide has finally turned and at last we have a really good Netflix movie. Instead, the very best I can really say about Extinction is that the film’s full premise which quite rightly isn’t really completely revealed to the audience until towards the last third of the movie is exciting. When the revelation did finally come, I certainly hoped that I would have been more delighted.
The acting isn’t bad but the reason I found the all important revelationvery underwhelming has a lot to do with the story / structure and the budget. I feel as though the story needed more development, particularly in regards to how a thriller could still be thrilling considering the unavoidable constraints linked to the specific nature of the story and the nature of the main characters involved. In that way perhaps Extinction wouldn’t have felt quite as hollow as it did to me.
I’m disappointed because instead of celebrating the film’s great execution, I’m left wondering how good such an exciting and relevant idea could have been in the hands of different people.
Watch it if you must. Otherwise there’s Minority Report (2002), which isn’t particularly similar to Extinction, but it is undoubtedly good.
Extinction, a new Ben Young directed sci-fi / thriller about a father’s recurring nightmare showing his family in grave danger becoming a reality. The nightmare comes true when the planet is suddenly invaded by a highly destructive force and so the fight for their lives begins.
Michael Peña, Mike Colter, Lizzy Caplan star…
I’m probably being way too optimistic here but I’m interested because I want an explanation for why he could see the future. I’d love a twist in the story. For example, is he linked to the invaders somehow? My fingers are crossed for a worthy Netflix movie.
Emma Booth, Israel Broussard, Tom Riley and Georgia Goodman also star
I tuned in to ChiPs because of the trailer. I also happened to be in the mood for laughs in a movie with actors I already like. Michael Peña I appreciate because of End of Watch (2012) and Dax Shepherd for his recent appearance in an Interview on Hot Ones, a very popular YouTube series I enjoy.
With additional cast that includes, Kristen Bell, Maya Rudolph and Vincent D’Onofrio, CHiPs also has Shepherd occupying the director’s seat. The good news is that the thought, ‘that wasn’t a bad opener’ did cross my mind by the end of the first seven minutes of ChiPs. I enjoyed the shenanigans of the two Los Angeles Highway Patrol motorcycle officers played by Shepherd and Peña. I can therefore say that I found ChiPs adequately entertaining, story-wise. Another highlight with this movie is the beautiful imagery of Los Angeles plus Peña and Shepherd’s chemistry, however awkward at times.
I see ChiPs asan answer to the question ‘what’s the name of Dax Shepherd and Michael Peña’s movie?’ It’s certainly that for me more than it’s an answer to the question ‘which buddy / cop movie do you highly recommend?’
With that said, watch ChiPs if you’re really curious. I was, so I did. Luckily for me, I regret nothing.
Starring Dax Shepherd, Michael Peña, Kristen Bell and Maya Rudolph, CHiPs is a new comedy about the shenanigans of two Los Angeles Highway Patrol motorcycle officers…
Written and directed by Shepherd, I’m drawn to chips because they’re delicious… but I’m drawn to CHiPs because I enjoyed some of the jokes in the trailer. Another reason would be that I’m still kind of chasing the excellent onscreen chemistry that Michael Peña had with Jake Gyllenhaal in what is still my favourite cop movie probably always, End of Watch (2012). A great film that features the kind of brotherly love dreams are made of.
