Director Steven Soderbbergh’s new movie is a comedy starring Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Adam Driver and Hilary Swank –  to name just a few. The story centres around two brothers and their attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina…

Such a pleasant surprise to see Daniel Craig’s face in this trailer. I imagine that the impressive cast list for this movie was probably ready to do everything in their power to secure a chance to work with Soderbergh. You know, just in case he decides to retire from films one more time, right after this one.

Katie Holmes, Riley Keough, Katherine Waterston, Sebastian Stan, Katie Holmes, David Denman, and Jack Quaid make up some of the aforementioned impressive stars.

Logan Lucky Release Dates: August 18th, 2017 (US); August 25th, 2017 (UK)…

SING (2016): The Thing I Liked…

Besides the fun clips in the trailer, I found Sing to be quite forgettable. The story is based on the numerous characters involved in a singing competition, which if successful will help the organiser save his failing theatre.

The reason I didn’t completely enjoy Sing, even though I was moved and amused in parts is because I just didn’t find the story and most of the characters that entertaining or interesting; something to do with how stereotypical most of them are, I’m sure. The fact that I’m also that person who doesn’t enjoy watching televised singing competitions surely has something to do with it. Additionally, there’s a part of me that didn’t buy into Matthew McConaughey’s voice and / or performance as the Koala.

The main highlight about Sing, for me  has nothing to do with the music. I loved the mommy piggy (Reese Witherspoon) and her ingenuity when no one else was available to take care of her piglets. I also adore her performance partner, another cute piggy; you know, the one in the red sequinned leotard and gold sequinned sweatsuit that you fell in love with in the trailers.

You’ll very likely have a better time watching sing if you enjoy singing competitions. If you’re not that person, I hope you like it anyway, should you decide to tune in.

TED (2012): Silly, Filthy & Good

You wouldn’t be blamed if after hearing the concept of Ted, your reaction was, really? Please!

But then you learn a little more and realise that the movie is  the brainchild of Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy. He not only stars as the voice of Ted but directed and wrote it too.

Fans of the very successful Family Guy series would be the most excited. Just a little more perhaps, than fans of general good humour – particularly humour  that’s silly and filthy in parts.

Also starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, there’s plenty of funny dialogue. One of the key highlights for me is Donny, the character played by Giovanni Ribisi and his highly peculiar dance moves. Lastly, who could forget the scene with all the ‘white trash’ names…

Mandy, Marylyn, Tiffany, Candace, Brandy, Heather Channing, Brianna, Amber Sabrina, Melody, Dakota, Ciara, Bambi, Christal, Samantha, Autumn, Ruby, Taylor, Tara Tammy, Lauren, Charlene, Chantal, Courtney, Misty, Jenny, Christa, Mindy, Noel, Shelby, Trina, Riba, Cassandra, Nikki, Kelsy, Shauna, Jolene, Earlene, Claudia, Savannah, Casey, Dolly, Kendra, Kylie, Chloe, Devon, Emma-Lou, Becky, Brandy-Lyn, Heather-Lyn, Tammy-Lyn

Looking forward to watching the sequel, Ted 2 (2015) in a few days.

Happy Ted 🙂
