Written / directed by Deon Taylor; Paula Patton, Omar Epps and William Fichtner star in Traffik, a thriller about a couple who find themselves being tormented by a violent biker gang, turning their romantic weekend get away into a nightmare…
This trailer has some promise. I’m curious because it somehow didn’t occur to me that grown adults could also be targets for human trafficking.
Roselyn Sanchez, Missi Pyle and Laz Alonso also star.
I don’t really understand the idea that Warcraft is a movie only true fans of World Of Warcraft (the multiplayer online role-playing game that this movie is based on) can enjoy. I had a good time and I’m certainly not a ‘true fan.’ Especially since the only reason I know about World Of Warcraft is because of the characters of CBS’s comedy series, The Big Bang Theory.
Since fantasy movies generally aren’t my thing, it may not surprise you to learn that I found The Lord Of The Rings trilogy incredibly punishing – and I don’t just mean the length of the movies. Regardless of this, every so often one or two fantasy films gets through to me and I can’t quite explain why. Warcraft is one such movie. Perhaps it’s because something about the fantasy movies I respond most to in a positive way, remind me of tales I heard and/or read in my youth.
I like how the story of Warcraft comes together. The characters may not be the most complex but sometimes that’s OK, for me at least. The pace of the movie kept me engaged and the special effects were fun. Another highlight is the way the Orcs move, particularly Toby Kebbell’s Antonidas.
Directed by Duncan Jones, the rest of the cast , namely Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Ben Foster and Travis Fimmel all played their roles well. I also think that Paula Patton’s Garona is arguably her best work since Precious (2009). She may have been in better films since, but my disappointment as I tried and failed to sit through Baggage Claim (2013) is so very deep that… Have you tried to watch Baggage Claim?
I say ignore everyone that claims Warcraft can only be enjoyed and understood by fans of the game, for a good time is what I and the same may be for you.
The chemistry between Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington is the reason why 2 Guns is quite the thrill ride.
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, you’ll enjoy the the action, humour, the buddy cop dynamic and Bill Paxton’s intense and terrifying turn as Earl.
Edward James Olmos, James Marsden, Robert John Burke and Paula Patton also star.
A very memorable moment is when Wahlberg’s character reveals who one of the bad guys reminds him of. I heard the words as I watched movie in the cinema/ theatre. The observation is so correct and well delivered that it stayed in my mind for the rest of the movie.
Will Smith and Kevin James were well cast in their roles for 2005’sromantic comedy, Hitch. Smith, a Date Doctor/ Consultant and James, the ‘dating-life challenged’ singleton in desperate need of professional help.
Hitch works, in the most part because of the excellent chemistry between the two male leads. I had no issue at all with the film… that is until the last 20 minutes, by which I mean what happens romantically between Mendes and Smith’s characters.
Those last 20 minutes left me unable to recall another time when an element of a story felt so incredible forced. I just couldn’t buy it. The issue isn’t that what happened actually happened, but it’s the way it was written and executed.
It’s always a shame when something that takes place in a film completely forces you to remember that the people on screen are definitely ‘pretending’ because it doesn’t feel as real and realistic as it ought to.
Thankfully however, the memory of the films two funniest scenes will continue to shine bright in my memory. Kevin James’ show stopping dance moves and that little issue the issue with the crayfish. Watch it to experience those moments.
Directed by Andy Tennant; Eva Mendes and Amber Valletta also star.
