Tom Holland, Mads Mikkelsen Daisy Ridley and Nick Jonas’s latest adventure/sci-fi movie is Chaos Walking.

Directed by Doug Liman; the story is set in a dystopian world where there are no women and all living creatures can hear each others’ thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise.

Additional key cast includes David Oyelowo, Kurt Sutter and Cynthia Erivo.

It seems that the trend for movies where women are scarce is here to stay. As a lady myself, I’m not quite sure how to feel about that. Nevertheless, I do want to see where this plot takes us.

What I know for sure is this, I wouldn’t be glad about being the only woman left.

Demián Bichir, Óscar Jaenada, Bethany Anne Lind, Olunike Adeliyi, Mylène Dinh-Robic, Maxwell McCabe-Lokos and Tara Nicodemo also star.

Chaos Walking Release Dates: January 22nd, 2021 (US & UK)…

JUMANJI – THE NEXT LEVEL (2019): The Things I Liked…

Jumanji – The Next Level, a comedy / adventure where four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji‘s world, the very place where they have to escape an endless variety of jungle traps and survive, is a movie almost as good as Jumanji – Welcome To The Jungle (2017)

There is a fair amount of newness in this second instalment to keep things interesting. Firstly, the characters are on a completely new level with new dangers, traps and puzzles. Then there’s the addition of Danny DeVito and Danny Glover’s characters. Yet, even with all this newness and more, the main reason director Jake Kasdan’s latest didn’t come out in front for me is in large part because sequels just can’t be as ‘fresh and new’ as their predecessors.

I did also find the ending of the first movie / solving of the final puzzle that little bit more satisfying and action packed. That’s not to say that Kasdan’s film doesn’t feature some very well choreographed action sequences of its own – because the scene with the mandrills and bridges is quite impressive.

In terms of the characters, DeVito as grandpa is the main highlight for me. Followed by the parts played by Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson – unsurprisingly. I just really love their great chemistry, comic timing and fun dialogue. I also remember particularly appreciating Hart’s delivery of the below line, in Glover’s speaking voice and cadence. 

Did I die – and turn into some kind of muscular Boy Scout?’

One more highlight is of course, the ‘special skill’ of the beautiful black horse.

Watch Jumanji – The Next Level because you’re curious and it’s good. Also, especially if you had fun watching 2017’s Jumanji movie.

It’s time for the final Jumanji – The Next Level trailer, starring Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black… 

I want to find out if the movie will have me as slightly confused as this trailer. I’m definitely in for the jokes, adventure plus Hart and Johnson’s beautiful bromance.

Awkwafina, Karen Gillan, Alex Wolff, Danny Glover, Madison Iseman, Danny DeVito, Colin Hanks, Ser’Darius Blain and Rhys Darby also star.

UGLY DOLLS (2019): The Thing I Liked…

UglyDolls, an animated movie about ‘ugly dolls’ that confront what it means to be different and struggle with a desire to be loved is a film I wanted to enjoy more than I actually did. 

Starring Nick Jonas, Emma Roberts, Janelle Monáe, and Pitbull, the message about being ourselves and accepting ourselves regardless of perceived imperfections is delivered through a story that unfortunately didn’t succeed at keeping my attention. For that I blame the overall execution, including the pace and rhythm.

Looking on the bright side however, (no pun intended), there’s the colours and cuteness to enjoy. Except that unfortunately, colours and cuteness don’t equal to a worthy movie experience. Luckily for me, there are two or three songs I did like even though I think the opening track felt quite forced.

Watch UglyDolls only if if you really must. Otherwise, watch Zootopia (2016) instead. It’s loosely similar but so very good.
