In The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Ryan Reynolds is the latter and Samuel L. Jackson, the former. The bodyguard and hitman are not quite getting along. Still they must learn to work together because one of them has to testify at the International Court of Justice…
I don’t know if Reynolds and Jackson have been in a movie together before, but I’m certainly a fan of their chemistry. I’m also getting something of a The Other Guys (2010) vibe – and I’m sure that’s a good thing.
Starring Salma Hayek, Rob Lowe, Michael Cera and Eugenio Derbez, How To Be A Latin Lover is a Ken Marino directed comedy about a man who made a career of seducing rich older women. However, he now finds himself living with his estranged sister after his 25 year marriage ends…
I’ll mainly be tuning in in hopes of good humour and because of my general love for Salma Hayek.
McKenna Grace, Kristen Bell and Raphael Alejandro also star.
Based on the celebrated fairytales of Giambattista Basile and directed by Matteo Garrone,Tale Of Taleswhich stars Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel and Toby Jones is the story of three neighbouring castles and the troubled rulers within.
Not long after Tale Of Tales began, I found myself wanting some of the players in the movie to meet and be connected somehow. Reason being, in my mind that’s at least one option that could have increased the chance of an overall more satisfying film experience.
I’m still not convinced that Tale Of Tales needed to be more than two hours long. A tighter edit and perhaps two tales instead of three would have allowed for some of the gaps in the story to be filled in a more satisfying way.
Salma Hayek’s performance as the jealous Queen of Longtrellis is the one I enjoyed most. That, along with the films other highlights including the cinematography, makeup and costumes.
The most exciting part of the whole movie, for me at least began at the point that the princess found hope when there was none.
By the end of Tale Of Tales, I knew one thing for sure and that is that I don’t completely get it. The story of the jealous queen I understand, the story of the mad king and his daughter is relatively straight forward enough. But that of the nymphomaniac king and the two wrinkly sisters? I understand the sister dynamic and a lustful king but everything could have been woven together in a more satisfying way.
Watch Tale Of Tales if you must. I was compelled because of the costumes, cinematography and Salma Hayek.
Starring Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly and Vincent Cassel, I like the look of todays trailer, Tale of Tales because it reminds me a little of Guillermo del Toro’s CrimsonPeak (2015).
Directed by Matteo Garrone, Tale of Tales is a combination of three stories set in neighbouring kingdoms. One of the kingdoms is ruled by a queen with deadly jealousy in her heart…
Also starring Toby Jones and Shirley Henderson, in addition to the costumes and the promise of kings and queens grossly abusing their power, I’m also looking forward to the ogres, fairies,sorcerers, strange animals and fearsome monsters.
Sausage Party is the brand new comedy from Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and James Franco. It’s an animation comedy and the key characters are food…
I wasn’t a big fan of Rogen’s previous movie, The Night Before (2015). But my fingers are crossed with this new ‘food horror.’ The different personalities assigned to all food items is an intriguing thing.
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan; the film stars several Rogen regulars, including Michael Cera, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. Salma Hayek, Edward Norton and Paul Rudd also lend their voices.
Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba star in Some Kind Of Beautiful. A Tom Vaughn directed drama/ romance set in England and LA.
Some Kind Of Beautiful is unfortunately not the most well executed movie I’ve seen recently. Its ills include the dialogue, general execution – particularly the lines delivered by Malcolm McDowell and aspects of the story that just don’t make sense to me, in terms of the character’s motivations or lack there of.
I tuned in firstly because I was in the mood for an onscreen romance. Secondly I wanted to watch a movie that wasn’t too demanding of my attention and lastly, I love Salma Hayek, a gifted actress and all round very smart woman.
There are things I did enjoy about Some Kind Of Beautiful and they include the soundtrack, the relationship between the sisters and the sunny LA location. I love to travel, you see. Even when I have to do it using mainly my imagination. 🙂
Watch it if something about the movie strongly appeals or if you really, really must.
