Fall Out Boy may have created the most Funny thing to come out of the upcoming Ghostbusters Film

While Patrick Stump may not be afraid of what I can only assume are ghosts (or maybe it’s the critics for this song). I’m more than afraid of this reboot of the original Ghostbusters theme. It’s all over the place and has some weird rhythm to it. Not content at just making some schlocky EDM version of the song, no now the new movie has given us a full blown reboot with Fallout Boy and a verse featuring Missy Elliot.

Listen if you dare,you might be in for a scare.




Hail, Ceasar! An Honest Review

The Coen brothers have been one of my favorite set of directors ever since the great great film “Raising Arizona” it was by far the second greatest Nicolas Cage film I’ve seen in my entire life,(the first of course being Con-Air) but not their best film to date. No that would be “The Big Lebowski” which I had to watch 2 or 3 times to actually grasp the whole plot of,because it’s actually a lot more than just “Porn Stars pee on a Man’s rug”. Now you’re probably wondering what all of this has to do with “Hail, Ceasar!” well as I’ve stated before Joel and Ethan Coen are known for making movies where the plots kind of get all over the place but usually resolve nicely towards the end. With “Hail, Ceasar!” I was a little bit confused as to what had just happened.

The movie takes place in a Hollywood lot in the 1950’s,World War II is over and everyone is afraid of Communists. The story centers around the Eddie Mannix (played by Josh Brolin) a Hollywood Fixer for Capitol Pictures. Things go horribly awry when the big shot Hollywood Star Baird Whitlock (played by George Clooney) goes missing, it’s up to Eddie to find out where he’s gone while keeping the Press at bay and keeping the Studio’s other stars from collapsing in on themselves. Had the movie just stayed with this simple plotline switching between Baird and Eddie’s perspectives it would have been phenomenal, but instead 3 different stories featuring other Hollywood Stars are thrown into the mix. Which Ultimately ends up very disappointing when the only resolution at the end of the movie is for Baird and Eddie.

That’s not to say that the other character’s stories are uninteresting it just means that there’s a lot more to be answered and there’s no way I would pay to see “Hail, Ceasar! 2: That’s a Wrap”. But in terms of a Coen Brothers film it seems like another one for the Books. I’ll probably pick it up again and re-watch it like I did with every other on of their films because I’m sure there’s something I missed.

“Hail, Ceasar!” is out now on DvD and Blu-Ray and you can pick up a copy at Amazon.

The Revenant an Honest Review

The Revenant is a movie that takes place in the early 1800’s and follows the adventures of a bunch of fur trappers who can’t wait to get their payday for a haul of furs they just got,but things take a wild turn when they’re ambushed by Arikara Indians, uneasiness and grimaces ensue as most of the trappers are killed while trying to escape. Among these fur trappers we have that guy who would eventually get an Oscar for this role that’s right Tom Hardy. Wait hold on….okay apparently Leonard DiCaprio got the Oscar for his role in this I don’t know why but okay, I guess I’ll have to talk about him. Leonardo DiCaprio plays another fur trapper named Hugh Glass,who was actually a real person which this story was BASED on. Notice how I said based? That’s because there were a few creative liberties that were included in the movie to make it more exciting,but I digress that’s for later on. So Hugh has this son who is part Native American that I’m not sure if he’s actually the father or if he just kind of adopted him when Hugh fell in love the mother? It’s hard to tell because through out the movie we’re given flashbacks with little to no dialogue and quick cuts of a village being burned down,BUT I digress. So Hugh’s name is Hawk and we see Hugh giving the tough love act to Hawk because of the untrust most people had against Native Americans back in the 1800’s.

So these fur trappers are running from the Arikara and decide to hide their furs away in a marked location, Tom Hardy who plays John Fitzgerald another fur trapper complains about all troubles this Hugh Glass is causing everyone,being a tracker and guide and all. We learn that John Fitzgerald is the main antagonist and that he just wants to get his money for his furs and not die. Man what a villian. So the trappers set up camp and sleep, Hugh is plagued by nightmares of the French burning down that village again,but now we see a Young Hawk standing there, pretty deep I know. Hugh wakes up and goes scouting, upon crossing some cubs Hugh engages in combat with a very defensive mother bear, the mother bear LITERALLY TEARS HUGH TO SHREDS,but through magical 1800’s medicine and science Hugh barely survives. Now the trapper group has to make their way back to base with a nearly dead Hugh. The leader of the Trapper group Andrew Henry (played by Domhnall Gleeson) tries but miserably fails in killing Hugh. Why you ask? Because he values the life of the man who saved him from those Arikara’s earlier in the movie. So he tells John and another guy from the group that if they stay back and wait for Hugh to die with a respectable death he’ll pay them more for their services. John being totally all over the fact of waiting for some guy who is going to die to get more money wholeheartedly agrees, so does the other guy, Hugh’s son Hawk also says he’ll stay by his father’s side, this is the most bonding we’ll see between this family until their next scene together.

After a couple of hours John basically tells Hugh I’m going to kill you for the benefit of everyone here and tries to smother Hugh,what a champ, being efficient in his work,or so you’d think until Hawk see John trying to kill his dad. Hawk attacks John,John kills Hawk and now we’re supposed to feel bad because a father lost his son. There was nothing really too motivating other than that but you never really get a feel for the father son bond they might have had. So John tells the other trapper that Hugh is dead and that Hawk ran away and with that the Arikara are right behind them and they have to split,they aren’t but this guy is too afraid of death that he believes John and they vamoose.  Hugh crawls over to a now dead Hawk and cries out in anguish though it’s more like a grunt when you’re trying too hard to lift something.



The rest of the movie is about Hugh and his travels through America’s not yet named Dakotas,with great highlights like, sleeping through a snow storm without catching hypothermia,sleeping inside a horse while naked,eating raw bison,eating raw fish,and my favorite,saving a random Arikara woman that will come into play later in the film. Remember earlier how I said Leonardo DiCaprio won an Oscar for this? There was no reason he should have won an Oscar for this,he’s been in much better roles where he actually acted. In this film he mostly just grunts,falls over,and eats raw things. I would have to say that the movie is enjoyable if you would cut out about 25% of the scenes where Leo is struggling to do some simple task. The one’s who should be praised are the supporting cast and actors, the movie should have been less about Hugh’s angst and suffering and more about what was going on with the people who were involved with what went down,periodically going back to Hugh and introducing some new challenge for him,overcoming that challenge and then going back to how thing were being handled with the Fur Trappers. If you have free time or just want to see what it looks like for Leonardo DiCaprio fight a CGI bear then I would suggest watching this, but if you’re looking for a much better Western movie then might I suggest The Hateful 8?


You can get The Revenant from Amazon.

Daddy’s Home an Honest Review

Daddy’s Home is the latest movie from funnyman Will Ferrell with Co-Star/Action Guy Marky Mark Wahlberg you may be smarter than me and realized that they both were in a movie together called The Other Guys. Which now that I realize this, in that Movie Mark Wahlberg’s character really wanted to be with Ferrell’s wife but in this Movie Will Ferrell is with Wahlberg’s ex-wife. This leads me to my main point of cuckolding in Mainstream media, I can’t help but notice it popping up everywhere, but I digress this isn’t the time or place for that. Let’s get to the synopsis; Will Ferrell plays Brad Whitaker the most average suburban Dad you could ever imagine EXCEPT he can’t have children of his own because of what I can only assume is Hank Hill symptom, he recently married Sara who is played by Linda Cardellini who, already having 2 children wants ANOTHER ONE (do you see where this is going), who is in turn Dusty Mayron’s played by Wahlberg ex-wife, Sara’s two kids who start off like any typical child, hating their new step dad so much that they wish he were dead, not in some cute playful way but rather in a way that would tell psychiatrists that these kids might be related to Jeffery Dahmer.




As with most movies though in the span of 10 minutes and montages the kids begin to warm up to Brad until that’s right guess who decided to call his family and appear out of nowhere, it’s Dusty and it’s nothing but wacky shenanigans of trying to show who the better father is, with such HI-LARIOUS events as lying to your children about the breakfast you made them, very weird bedtime rituals, penis envy through story telling, men in their 40’s skating in a half pipe, and my favorite Dusty denying Brad medical services long enough for a good portion of his brain cells to die in front of a bunch of neighborhood children. All the while I should mention while Brad is trying to conceive with his wife. After one fiasco too many, including Dusty basically being better than Brad at Brad’s radio job, and Dusty setting up a Clinic visit for Brad to get his “equipment” checked out for baby making (SPOILER: In a weird miracle Brad IS able to produce fertile sperm with the Doctor’s help.) Brad goes all out for a Christmas in July stunt that probably put his new family in too much debt and ends up with them going to a Lakers game, where he gets super plastered after Dusty gets courtside seats for knowing some guy. How this is possible in a post 9/11 America is beyond me but honestly what do I know. Let’s speed this up because I’m antsy to get to the ending where /THE/ best cameo in modern cinema happens.




Brad makes an ass out of himself at the game, he’s kicked out of the house, Dusty swoops in for the Double Cuckolding reach around and is back to being Dad, but old habits die hard as Dusty realizes he isn’t the Fatherly type and he ditches his family. Brad gets wind of this as now his/Dusty’s daughter is now being stood up for the Daddy Daughter Dance. Long story short, Brad finds Dusty and convinces him on being there for their Daughter, Dusty says we should both be there for her. They make it to the Dance and everything is solved through dancing their problems away roll credits. OR SO YOU WOULD THINK. Scene change Dusty is now a Step Father with a child he lives across from Brad in a much nicer house and Brad now Father’s his own child as well as his Step children blah blah blah BUT WAIT WHO IS THAT COMING TO SEE DUSTY’S NEW STEP DAUGHTER, IT’S HER DAD! Who is in fact John Cena, how do you match up to that? You don’t, now we roll the credits.

This movie was alright, it’s a film you watch once and then return it to RedBox enjoying the couple of laughs you had. Most of my laughs came from Hannibal Buress who plays a contractor, I didn’t mention him before because I don’t want to give away the funny parts. Overall I’d say this movie is definitely worth a rental and a very solid 3 out of 5 stars, it’s a silly movie filled with second hand embarrassment but it’s entertaining to see the least.

The NEW Ghostbusters Trailer is Out and there’s only one Question on my mind…

 

Why is Slimer still running around in New York City? How does this one Ghost keep getting Unbusted? Honestly, I know he’s one of the iconic Ghosts for the franchise but he’s been in every single version of any Ghostbusters creation, video games, cartoon show, etc.

Is it in the Ghostbuster code that they have to keep Slimer unbusted for a minimum amount of time? Hopefully this new film will answer this question. I mean that’s why they made the film right?

Right?

What are you looking forward to in the new Film?

Are you even looking forward to the new Film at all?

Oliva Wilde Says She Was “Hammered” While Filming A Movie In Chicago

Actress Oliva Wilde recently opened up about filming her 2013 film “Drinking Buddies” in Chicago and revealed that she, and the other actors, were HAMMERED during the entire movie.

The movie is based in Chicago and is a tangled love story about friends and co-workers at a real-life brewery on the City’s west side.

What moviegoers didn’t realize was that the cast was drinking REAL BEER during filming. That means with every passing scene, the cast was getting REAL drunk.

Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston, Jake Johnson and Wilde’s real-life husband Jason Sudeikis appear in the movie, which means they too were probably buzzing after a few takes on film days.

Check out the preview for Wilde’s interview on Off Camera with Sam Jones:

It’s the first time since 1965 that a Bond Theme song is being sung by a British Male.

Star Wars Spinoff to Feature Boba Fett

Disney had previously announced a Star Wars spinoff to follow Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The spinoff was set to feature Boba Fett, the galaxy’s hard core bounty hunter.

To many fans disappointment, director Josh Trank left the project earlier this year. Now, the Boba Fett spinoff is in limbo. At least, on Disney’s end.

Filmmaker Eric Demeusy has made a 90 short Boba Fett film, released September 1. Perhaps this will lead to a feature-length film if there is enough support. Whether you want a full length film or not, the short is a must see!
