Double Review – Deadpool 2 & Solo: A Star Wars Story

Howdy ladies and gents, how’s it going? Today I return with not one but two reviews in the form of Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story via my podcast, Film Focus!

Timecodes:

02:23 Deadpool 2 Review
18:37 Solo: A Star Wars Story Review

Check out the review below:

I was originally going to do a written review for Deadpool 2, but time got away from me and with Solo coming out a week later, I thought it’d be better for me to just pack both reviews together, and like I have stated beforehand, I feel like I can communicate my raw thoughts on a film much better than a written piece of work.

You can listen to the podcast on Soundcloud at https://soundcloud.com/film_focus or on iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/film-focus/id1114233892?mt=2

Anyway if you have any thoughts on Deadpool 2 or Solo, whether you like or dislike either, be sure to drop them in the comments section below! :D, until next time, laters! 😀

PODCAST: Film Focus Episode 53 – Avengers: Infinity War Spoiler Discussion

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, as some of you may have seen, in 2016 I started a film podcast entitled Film Focus and on this podcast, I talk about various topics in film and reviews as well on a biweekly basis. And the latest episode is a spoiler-heavy discussion on Avengers: Infinity War.

Anyway here’s the episode 53:

I’ve done already done my posted my original review, however, unlike most reviews I do there is a written and audio-based review. But I felt that because Infinity War would be a film I would be naturally excited about, I wanted to make my main review audio-related so that you all could understand my feelings towards the film in its purest form. And I also had so much fun recording with Drew that I felt like a written review would come across a bit redundant. However, that recording wasn’t the only episode recorded, as we also did a spoiler-based discussion talking about all of the major talking points from Thanos to the funniest scenes and character interactions to the character deaths and what the end of this film could mean for the MCU going forward.

Now I actually dropped this episode online last week, but because of timing issues I didn’t share it on my blog, plus I feel like a fortnight is plenty of time to wait before busting out the juicy spoilers haha. So yeah if you’re curious to hear the fun, interesting and fun thoughts on Infinity War from Drew and I then you’re in the right place. It was one of my favourite episodes of the podcast so far! 😀

As I mentioned before I’ll cover a different topic or review in each episode and since I don’t have much in the way of listeners or promotion, I’m here to spread the word about my podcast. 🙂

You can find my main site on Soundcloud here: https://soundcloud.com/film_focus

Or if you’re on iTunes subscribe and rate me on there: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/film-focus/id1114233892?mt=2

So if you have some spare time on your hands and would like to listen to the ramblings of a passionate/strange man then please check it out, and share it with your friends if they are fans of film discussion. Also, you have any feedback or if you’d be interested in joining in future episodes be sure to let me know, until next time, laters! 😀

Avengers: Infinity War Spoiler-Free Review

Howdy ladies and gents of the internet, how is it going? So yeah this review is up a little later than I had wanted but let’s just say I had a hella busy weekend, but putting that aside, I am finally here to share with you my thoughts on the latest Marvel Studios, Avengers: Infinity War! Now I did consider doing a written review, but I feel like my podcast would be able to better describe my feeling about the film in a more vivid and raw manner. So my review will be presented via my podcast Film Focus and features a returning guest, my homie Drew from Drew’s Movie Reviews.

Anyway here’s the episode 52:

Now I will admit this review was largely unscripted and since we were trying to avoid spoilers, there is a fair amount of vagueness to our comments, that being said we do cover a good deal of material in the story, character and presentation departments highlighting the highs and lows of the film, and generally just gushing about how much we liked the film haha. It is a good listen and I hope that you’ll enjoy the episode because I know Drew and I had a lot of fun making the episode. 😀

If you haven’t checked out my podcast before you can find it here: https://soundcloud.com/film_focus

So have you seen Infinity War and if so what did you think of it? Did it meet or exceed your expectations? OR were you disappointed? Drop your thoughts in the comments section below and I’ll see ya in the next review, until next time, laters! 😀

QUICK THOUGHTS: Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

Howdy ladies and gents, how’s it going? So I just got home from work around 40 or so minutes ago and just remembered the new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was released a few hours ago, so I just watched it and wanted to share my brief thoughts on it

Check out the trailer below:

So my initial impressions were this, “Oh my god, I’m in love!” I don’t think my words will be able to do the trailer justice and while I don’t want to watch it too many times, I’ve already seen it twice and I’ve got goosebumps! I want to avoid spoilers, but at the same time, I REALLY want to watch it like 10 more times! All throughout the trailer you feel the weight and significance of what’s happening, not only is this all the heroes coming together to face a threat larger than anything that’s come before, but it is the culmination of 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and you can see it with the Marvel logo sequence, the number of characters, locations and glowing items, but also audio-wise with Nick Fury’s speech from the Avengers being spoke by him and few other heroes, and of course they put in the Alan Silvestri Avengers theme song in there as the icing on the cake in both a darker and positive light too. That was just gorgeous for me as a massive fan of that theme song! And Thanos, wow, I REALLY pray that he’s the villain we’ve all been hoping for, not another Hela or Ultron who look cool from the trailers, but only end up being decent/average. So far he looks and talks like a badass, he looks pretty intimidating, his words feel menacing and he’s just messing people up left right and center including Spider-Man and Iron Man.

But what about what happens in the trailer? Well there’s so much to mention so here are my highlights:

  • There’s a massive battle in Wakanda with Black Panther, his army, plus the Avengers and some aliens? Sweet!
  • Vision and Scarlet Witch look close which means their relationship is finally happening on-screen! YAAAY!
  • Vision’s probably screwed as he’s shouting as someone’s trying to get that infinity stone out of his head.
  • Spider-Man’s new suit looks much better in motion than it did near the end of Homecoming.
  • Peter Parker’s arm hair stands up, spidey sense confirmed!
  • How badass does Steve Rogers look now?
  • I’m curious to see how Banner ended up with Doctor Strange and Wong, and how Tony Stark ends up there too.
  • The sense of scale in this film is immense with all the big ships, and the way the cinematography frames some of those battle sequences.
  • That last scene with Thor meeting the Guardians in their ship, love it.
  • The overall tone feels dark and dire and I love it, very Age of Ultron, I really hope Marvel commit to this tone in the film and give us some damn good drama!

In the end, I’m stupidly excited, I’m not gonna lie, I think my experience of watching the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron may still be my favourite of the Marvel Studios films so far, but this trailer, this trailer had so much going on and carried a lot of significance. It is a delicious trailer full of so many moments of hype, excitement, curiosity, mystery and seriousness. If this film is half as good as I hope it’ll be, then I will frigging blow up in May 2018, no joke! 😛

So have you seen the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War trailer and if so what did you think of it? Are you hyped, curious or underwhelmed? Let me know in comments section below and I’ll see ya on the next review, laters! 😀

QUICK REVIEW: Sicario

Good day to you ladies and gentlemen, time for another recent film review and today I’m finally gonna be talking about Sicario. Now this was a film I really wanted to see after seeing the trailers online and in the cinema, I love a good thriller and the cast just made me want to see it more. Well thanks to Cineworld I got to see the film last night two weeks before its actual UK release, and now I’m gonna talk about it.

sicario-poster03

The story can be described as the following:

“At the border between the United States and Mexico, idealistic FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) is enlisted by a government official to aid in a joint task force tracking down an anonymous drug lord.”

I thought the story was pretty interesting. I feel like the trailers painted the film as a crime thriller with a more familiar plot device in place for the Americans involved, instead you get a lot of good lies and deceit, tension, moral shades of grey and drama, however the plot never unfolds the way you’d expect. Plus it doesn’t help that the pacing felt slow and for a little while you’re left wondering where this film will go plot-wise. That being said, a little ways into the film there’s a revelation revealed and the focus switches up and then the film becomes WAY more interesting than it was before. I will not state when or why, but when you see it you’ll know and that singlehandedly made the film better to watch. It feels wrong to fault a film for not turning out the way that you wanted it to, but at the same time, you like what you like and if a film doesn’t give it to you, then that has to be noted.

The cast was impressive, but the best performances came from Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro. Firstly Emily Blunt as Kate Macer was great, she was this strong, smart and capable FBI agent who had a good moral compass and wanted justice for the all the wrong-doings that took place. However she realises that something’s wrong and is part of something that she didn’t sign up for and searches for answers with varying consequences. Blunt is such a great actress, she’s beautiful, yet badass, confident and vulnerable, headstrong but also naive and she does so very well with her material. But someone who may be even more impressive is Benicio del Toro as Alejandro, this character comes across as the strong, silent type or maybe silent but deadly type, either way he only speaks when its relevant and you’re not quite sure of his position in the story even though he’s working with the US government, but when this guy gets his time to shine, he’s unforgettable. This film reminds me of how intimidating and scary del Toro can be and why he is such a great actor, he genuinely blew me away and I loved his character.

Josh Brolin as Matt Graver was great, he’s a character who was charming and funny, but also had priorities and knew to assert himself in an authoritative when needed or when he wanted to, this was a side of Brolin I hadn’t seen for a while and I enjoyed him performance. Jon Bernthal as Ted was also good, I liked how fun and aggressive he was and always Bernthal turned in a good performance. Maximiliano Hernández was good as Silvio, offering a character I hadn’t seen from him before, but was interesting to watch. Victor Garber (an actor I’ve always remembered from 1997’s Cinderella) was good as Jennings, I also liked Daniel Kaluuya as Reggie Wayne and Jeffrey Donovan as Steve Forsing.

In conclusion Sicario was a good film with moments of brilliance, however it was not nearly as good as I was hoping for. It had a strong subject matter, great performances from Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro and some lovely cinematography and well-filmed action scenes, though the story just didn’t engage me like I thought it would. I may be in the minority of people that didn’t love Sicario and I think this film will do well with most movie-goers and critics, but for me it was good but not great.

Rating: 7.5/10

So what did you think of Sicario? Whatever your thoughts are be sure to drop them below and let me know. Until the next time, see ya later! 😀

QUICK REVIEW: Everest

Howdy people of the internet, time for another film review and today I’ll be talking about Everest. This was one of the films I highlighted in my films to look out for in 2015, but at the time there was no footage on show, but after I saw the trailer last month I knew it’d be something I had to see in the cinema. So after seeing it last night I’m ready to pass judgement!

everest-poster02

The plot can be summed up as the following:

“On the morning of May 10, 1996, climbers from two expeditions start their final ascent toward the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. With little warning, a violent storm strikes the mountain, engulfing the adventurers in one of the fiercest blizzards ever encountered by man. Challenged by the harshest conditions imaginable, the teams must endure blistering winds and freezing temperatures in an epic battle to survive against nearly impossible odds.”

The story was pretty good. The film basically deals with man vs. nature, death, fighting against overwhelming odds and the power of the human spirit. I thought that the film did a great job at highlighting how difficult of an undertaking it was to scale the famous mountain and showing of Everest as a character itself, a force of nature of that could not be taken lightly. I liked how there was the inclusion of humour and banter between the characters, but I also liked how the film didn’t shy away from the darker side of thing with the elements of danger, fear and despair, and man when the shit hits the fan it hits hard. There were a lot of scenes that are hard to watch with some of these characters, and it also didn’t help that I have fear of falling off of cliffs (yeah, I’m serious), and just Gravity and All Is Lost beforehand, this film perfectly realises one of my main fears of death in a realistic and scary manner.

everest-film-9poko

The cast did a pretty good job in their roles, though some stood out more than others. Jason Clarke was really good as Rob Hall, his character his confident, heroic and has to deal with so much drama and chaos, and Clarke really sold me on his material. Josh Brolin was one of my favourites as Beck Weathers, he was a character I got attached to and Brolin did a great job with his material. Jake Gyllenhaal was awesome as Scott Fischer, I liked his charisma and energy. Also John Hawkes was really good as Doug Hansen, Michael Kelly gave strong performance as Jon Krakauer and Sam Worthington did well as Guy Cotter and this was the first film of his in a while or maybe ever where I liked his performance. I also enjoyed Emily Watson’s performance as Helen Wilton, Keira Knightley as Jan Arnold, Robin Wright as Peach, Elizabeth Debicki as Dr. Caroline Mackenzie and Naoko Mori who was just so cute and lovely as Yasuko Namba.

3051060-poster-p-1-everest-movie

When it comes to the presentation it is truly the highlight of the film. Not to detract from the characters or story, but this is the area of the film that you’ll remember the most after it ends. Visually the film is incredible, the cinematography is great offering various shots and angles of the mountains so that when these characters are climbing and moving at these high altitudes, you can see and feel it. Also the visual effects are stunning and very realistic, the depiction of the mountains are done with just the right amount of scale, detail and clarity, and when the action is going down its pretty hardcore and in 3D the experience is enhanced just that bit more with the extra depth of field too. The sound design is also good with the all of the emphasis on the wind, thunderstorms, movement through the snow or crunch of movement when freezing over being felt throughout. Also the film score by Dario Marianelli is very good giving us a strong, powerful and emotive soundtrack that hit all the right beats and there is one great moment in the film where the music just swells and gives off this incredible sense of determination and satisfaction.

In conclusion Everest is definitely more effective with the spectacle than anything else. While I did enjoy the characters and the story, there are a few familiar narrative elements that hold this film back from being more. That being said, I believe that this film should be watched just for the visual experience on the biggest screen possible.

Rating: 7.5/10

So have you seen Everest and if so what did you think of it? Be sure to leave your comments below and I’ll see you on the next review, laters! 😀

Josh Brolin In Discussion To Star In Jurassic World

Alrighty then, it’s fairly late where I am but I don’t care, film news has no time specifics. Anyways continuing with the recent Jurassic World casting news, we finally have a popular face outside of Bryce Dallas Howard to add to the collection according to this report from ComicBookMovie:

jurassic_world_logo_a_l

“Deadline is reporting that Josh Brolin (“Men in Black 3”) is close to signing on for a lead role in Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.

JURASSIC-WORLD_JOSH-BROLIN_

Well this is odd. If any you remember back on September 26th when Variety announced that Bryce Dallas Howard had landed a role in Jurassic World, they also mentioned Josh Brolin landing a part as well. That information was removed from the article fairly quickly.

 Josh Brolin In Discussion To Star In JURASSIC WORLD

By the way, I love me some Jeff Sneider. I’m merely using his tweet to explain the interesting part of this story. So anyways, today Deadline has learned that Josh Brolin is very much in contention for a part in Jurassic World.

Universal Pictures is circling Josh Brolin to star in Jurassic World, the Colin Trevorrow-directed 3D sequel that the studio will release June 12, 2015. No deal yet, but I hear it’s headed that way. CAA-repped Brolin next stars in the Spike Lee-directed remake of Oldboy. Ty Simpkins and Bryce Dallas Howard have been cast so far.”

Well this is cool, now Josh Brolin, while he may not be one of my favourite actors he is still one of the coolest ones I’ve come across. Most films I’ve seen him in have been good, I can imagine him in the main role unless another male actor gets announced and if he does join Jurassic World then I’m down for it.

How do you lot feel about Brolin’s involvement in the film? Drop them in the comments below! 🙂

Gangster Squad Review

Alrighty then, Gangster Squad, my first proper 2013 film that I’ve seen in the cinema. I had hoped that this film would be worth my time and not just another one of those hyped up thriller films that actually suck. Luckily this film was pretty good, but I have indeed seen better before.

https://i1.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/03/Gangster_Squad_Poster.jpg

So the story takes place during the 1940s and ’50s in Los Angeles where gangster, Mickey Cohen owns the streets of the city with his ruthless gang members. However Sergeant John O’Mara along with some other LAPD officers and detectives form a group called the “Gangster Squad unit” who attempt to take back LA from Mickey Cohen and make the streets safe once more. I think the story for this film had a lot of potential because of its subject matter and the fact that it actually happened in real life, however I feel like the story never really reached that peak point. Also I never really found myself emotionally invested in the film at all which kind of sucked for me because most thrillers can engage me pretty well. The writing in this film was a little weak and predictable with me being able to actually guess what certain characters were going to say before they said it.

https://i1.wp.com/fwooshflix.com/files/2013/01/gangster-squad-2.jpg

While the story didn’t hold up as well as I’d hoped, the characters of Gangster Squad were a lot better. Josh Brolin as Sergeant John O’Mara was cool. I liked his no-nonsense approach to things and how he was determined to get his work done, though I found it funny how much I kept comparing him to Tommy Lee Jones throughout the film. Ryan Gosling as Sergeant Jerry Wooters was nice character and I liked his easy-going style. I think that the trailers lead me to believe that he was going to be the leader of the squad more so than O’Mara, but anyway he was good in the film though I wish his character had been fleshed out a bit more. Emma Stone as Grace Faraday was nice though severely underused. Stone looked immaculate in all of beautiful dresses and while her character has relevance to the story Grace is simply there just to get with Jerry and potentially get in trouble Cohen.

https://i1.wp.com/www.filmofilia.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Gangster-Squad-2.jpg

Also Nick Nolte as Chief Bill Parker was good too though I had hoped to see more of him really. Easily the best character was Sean Penn as Mickey Cohen. Mickey is a ruthless sadist who will grow his empire at any cost. Another mention goes out to Anthony Mackie as Detective Coleman Harris. I was paying extra attention to him due to the fact that he’ll be The Falcon in Captain America 2, so I wanted to see what skills he had and I thought he was pretty cool and liked the scenes he was in; he was an efficient and essential member of the group. Overall besides Sean Penn being the best character in the film, I also liked the “Gangster Squad” as a whole all of them seemed to gel well together and when they’re acting as a unit creating chaos in the streets and being people up I liked it a lot.

the-gangster-squad-02

The presentation of the film was alright both in the visual and audio department. The look of the film was nice and some of the camera shots were cool and the soundtrack by Steve Jablonsky is also good but nothing overly memorable.

So in conclusion Gangster Squad is good film, I liked the story but I wasn’t overly invested in it. I was hoping for something a little more in line with Boardwalk Empire or maybe even some like Lawless. I mainly liked this film for the characters involved and the good action scenes. I would still recommend Gangster Squad though, it is a good watch and I was entertained for the most part.

Rating: 7/10

Well there’s my review people, what did you think of the film? Drop me a comment and let me know! Until the next time, later on. 🙂

Films I’m Looking Forward to in 2012: Men In Black 3

Hello again ladies and gentlemen and welcome to another installment of films I’m looking forward to in 2012 and today’s film is very interesting one which comes in the shape of Men In Black 3.

https://i0.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8a/Men_In_Black_3.jpg

In a way Men In Black 3 in a way is one of those unexpected sequels that’s just showed up out of nowhere and it really does seem like Hollywood are running out of ideas and are resorting to reviving dead franchises from the ground for a remake or unnecessary sequel, however this is one sequel I think some people would like to see. The first Men In Black was awesome and I think everyone can agree that it was a good film, whereas a lot of people hated MIB2 and it wasnt the sequel most people wanted, so with a third film on the way I think fans want to see the power of the film series restored. Now this film has taken many years to make mainly because for a while it only was rumored to be made and then it was eventually confirmed by Sony Pictures Entertainment back in 2009 that the Men In Black would grace our cinema screens again. In 2010 after some debate as to whether Will Smith would sign on to do another MIB film, he was eventually drafted onto the project once co-star Tommy Lee Jones had joined the fray along with returning director Barry Sonnenfeld in May 2010. And then we had our first taste of that old school MIB feeling when Will Smith dressed up the black and white suit with the glasses at an exclusive Sony 3D TV launch event at Sony Pictures Studios saying that he was about to make 3-D look good. That line alone got me hyped.

In November 2010 principal photography started and it was at this point we got a look at the first set pictures and as time went by we got to see some of the additional cast members that would be part of the film including Emma Thompson, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement and even singer Nicole Scherzinger was going to be part of crew too. The cast for MIB3 seemed to be a mix of the old with a lot of fresh new talent and things only started to look up after the set pictures started showing up. Seeing Will Smith as Agent J again made me so happy and it was also good to see Tommy Lee Jones there too. It also looked like Josh Brolin looked great as the young Agent K, Emma Thompson looked fairly professional onset and Nicole Scherzinger just looked hot so I had no complaints. 🙂

https://i2.wp.com/cdn2-b.examiner.com/sites/default/files/styles/image_full_width_scaled/hash/77/64/men-in-black-3-set-photo-movie-image-will-smith-josh-brolin-03-439x600_0.jpg

It seems like an odd fit on paper but Smith and Brolin seem to fit well together as partners in MIB3.

When it comes to the plot of MIB3 it is as follows:

J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.

Now time travel is no stranger to sci-fi films and if anything it is usually used as the main plot device for films from classic film series’ like The Back To the Future Trilogy to the Terminator films or more specifically in great films like Donnie Darko or the animated masterpiece that is The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. In the case of MIB3 it does seem like a questionable choice for a plot on paper, but at the same time it does look pretty good in the trailers so there looks like there’s hope for this film.

The development of this film has been very turbulent due to delays, script rewrites and other formalities that made MIB3 look like it wasn’t going to be made. But luckily the film continued in production. And so several months down the line we got more set pics, the main teaser poster which was literally the title of the film in space. Then in November 2011 the next set of teaser posters came out and they were very funky, dizzying and confusing.

https://i0.wp.com/www.mib3.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/poster1.jpg https://i2.wp.com/www.mib3.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/poster2.jpg

Look at those? While it’s certainly an inventive poster, one has to ask the question who thought that these posters was a good idea? It’s very strenuous on the eyes.

Then in December we got our first sort of look at the film when the first small trailer came out in December 2011 and it sort of had that old MIB feel with a few new aspects in play in terms of plot, aliens and the human characters. And while it was decent trailer it did feel like it was quite lacking and left much to be desired. Luckily a full trailer was released recently, but we’ll get to that in a bit. There’s also talk recently of Lady Gaga making a cameo in MIB3 which could be great or completely irrelevant and this wouldn’t be the first time a famous music artist made an appearance in a MIB film. As many will be aware the late Michael Jackson made cameo as Agent M in MIB2 and it was probably one of the best scenes in the film because it was pretty damn funny.

I think the main reason I’m looking forward to this film is due to the fact that it’s Will Smith’s first film in like 4 years and that’s far too long for someone as awesome as him to be out of the game. I think MIB3 is the type of film Will Smith needs to come back into the world of cinema. Mainly because it’s part of a series of films that people know of and it seems like it’ll be massive. Plus this’ll be a great chance for those uneducated in the world of Big Will to take in all of his greatness.

Besides the fact that Will Smith is in the film, MIB3 does look like it could be a decent film. As I mentioned before MIB2 wasn’t that well received and so now in the year 2012 the filmmakers and actors have one final chance to redeem themselves and prove that the MIB series still kicks ass and also prove to us as the film audience that sequels can be good when handled properly. Potentially MIB3 could be a failure and all of this could be in vain. However even if this film doesn’t do amazingly well in the end it couldn’t be any worse than MIB2. Now let’s talk about that new trailer that’s available below:

Now seeing this trailer I feel a little more hopeful for this film. Don’t get me wrong I didn’t think MIB3 was going to be a complete failure but it’s always hard to tell until you get a decent trailer. This trailer happens to give us better idea as to what will be going down and is miles better than the previous trailer. Seeing Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones as partners again back in black is fabulous and Josh Brolin seems to capture the spirit of Agent K very well and overall there seems to be a great deal of scale to this film, with the characters, action and sci-fi elements combined.

So now all we can do in wait until May 2012 to see if this sequel kicks ass or flops at the Box Office and with critics. It comes outs around 2 weeks after The Avengers so it’ll be interesting to see how it fares in the summer.
