The fun trailer, ’being a fan of old school Jim Carrey’ and 90s nostalgia are the main reasons I was drawn to Sonic The Hedgehog; a story about a super fast alien hedgehog. One who must avoid government capture, with the help of a small town cop named Tom (James Marsden).
As director Jeff Fowler’s movie played, I soon realised that there are only really two things that kept me watching and somewhat enthused. The first is Marsden’s character. I just generally enjoy Marsden’s roles. The second is Adam Pally as Wade. His dialogue reminded me of how much I really enjoyed his work as Dr. Peter Prentice on The Mindy Project.
I’m definitely not saying that any of the other actors were bad. It’s just that I didn’t find most of the story and particularly the dialogue especially inspiring or fresh.
As for Carrey’s role as evil genius Dr. Robitnik, it turns out that seeing Carrey play a character similar to the ones I used to enjoy watching him play back in the 90s felt far too ‘same old, same old,’ rather than exciting and fun.
I’m sure that fans of the Sonic The Hedgehog games will enjoy this movie that little bit more. Sadly for me, even with some good special effects, star power, and a few useful notes on loneliness and isolation, I didn’t find Sonic The Hedgehog to be as fun as I’d hoped.
Written / directed by Tyler Perry, Acrimony stars Taraji P. Henson as a faithful wife who becomes enraged when it’s abundantly clear that she’s been betrayed by her devious husband…
I’m tuning in because its Taraji P. Henson who’s a wonderful actor and always a delight to watch. I’m going to miss her as Cookie once Empire ends. She’s the only reason I keep watching that show now, if I’m honest. This trailer also inspired flashbacks of Angela Bassett in Waiting to Exhale (1995).
Lyriq Bent, Danielle Nicolet and Jazmyn Simon also star.
The first time I saw the trailer for Southside With You, the story of Michelle and Barack Obama’s first date, my initial thought was ‘boring!’
But then, after watching the trailer a few more times an hour or so later, I still think the movie has the potential to be quite dull. However, like most I’m quite partial to a little romance. So maybe it won’t be terrible. Especially if the chemistry between the film’s stars Parker Sawyers and Tika Sumpter is just right. I’m not sure yet, based on this trailer…
In terms of what we’re likely to see in the movie, probably a serving of the attributes we may already know of and love about the President and First Lady. However, I’m hoping that we’ll be pleasantly surprised by a few things too.
The trailer for the sequel to Ride Along (2014) is here. Watch it for at least two laugh out loud moments…
I enjoy Hart most in his standup comedy and I’ll be watching this because of the two great comedy moments in this trailer. I’m also hoping like crazy, that there’s more good stuff where that came from.
Directed by Tim Story; Olivia Munn, Kevin Jeong and Benjamin Bratt also star.
