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.

The latest trailer for Disney Pixar’s Soul, just arrived.

Starring Tina Fey, Jamie Foxx, Daveed Diggs and John Ratzenberger, it’s the story of Joe Gardner, a musician who is transported out of his body and must find his way back, with the help of an infant soul.

I’m really looking forward to this one. Looks just about as comforting as one would want it to be. The premise also has me thinking about Netflix’s hit show The Good Place.

Soul is the latest animated adventure from Disney Pixar starring Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey and John Ratzenberger.

From directors  Pete Docter and Kemp Powers, Foxx plays Joe Gardner, a musician who has lost his passion for music. Joe is transported out of his body and must find his way back, with the help of an infant soul learning about herself…

Before reading the synopsis, I watched the trailer and by the end all that came out of my mouth was ‘Huh?

Now, after paying closer attention to the clues, Joe is very likely in between life and death. It looks like this will be another clever and especially moving Pixar movie and I’m definitely OK with that.

Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, and Ahmir-Khalib Thompson also star

SLEEPLESS (2017): New Trailer From Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan, Gabrielle Union…

In Sleepless, Jamie Foxx is a cop with criminal underworld connections and in search of his kidnapped son…

It’s a given that every movie that stars a parent searching for their kidnapped child will always make me think of Liam Neeson’s Taken (2008) – because it’s a great movie and one of my favourite movie experiences of all time. So much so that I kind wish that I had’t seen it yet so I could be thrilled afresh. I hope Sleepless is great.

Sleepless Release Dates: February 24th, 2017 (US)…
