Review Repost The Boss Baby Animation/Comedy Release 2017 • 7 year old Tim has always been imaginative, and when a new baby arrives, Tim's world is going to be turned upside down. With a suit and briefcase, the new baby turns out to be Boss Baby, a secret agent (bear with me here), aiming to take down puppies dominance over human love. And when Boss Baby is the only one capable of stopping puppies dominance, they must put their differences aside and save the world. • Okay, let's cut to the chase. The movie was bad and if it were up to me it would go straight to dvd. But the family love makes the movie much more bearable. The baby is, as expected, cute and quite funny, nothing special though. But the older brother Tim, was anything but cute, he is annoying, with character design as poor as his personality. • The story was told from the perspective of a 7 years old, and in my opinion, also written by a 7 years old. It was all over the place and it was hard for me to understand what is going on. The jokes were mainly slapsticks and baby mess. I can only count three times that i actually smiled in the cinema. • The animation was of tv cartoon quality. And with 125 millions, it was a waste of money. But to be fair, the movie is targeted for kids, and i'm sure kids will like it for it simplicity. • All in all, it's a poor cartoon, and i can't wait to get out of the cinema. Giving it a D.
Happy anniversary to Wall Street, released 30 years ago today. This is Oliver Stone directing at his very best & Michael Douglas gives a career best performance as Gordon Gekko and creates a truly memorable character in the process. Here are some fun facts about the film: . . 1. The first feature film to show a character using a cordless mobile cellular telephone. . . 2. Michael Douglas worked with a speech instructor on breath control to help him with the film's rapid-fire dialogue. Douglas was smoking 40 cigarettes a day at the time. . . 3. Oliver Stone later admitted that everyone involved told him Daryl Hannah was miscast, but he was too proud to replace her. This caused tension on set, particularly with Sean Young who wanted the role herself. . . 4. Oliver Stone gave Charlie Sheen the choice of having either Jack Lemmon or Martin Sheen play his father. Charlie chose his dad. . . 5. From the beginning, Sean Young kept telling Oliver Stone that she should play Darien and Daryl Hannah should be fired. Young would show up on the set late and unprepared. It's part of the reason her role is so small. . . 6. At the time, Michael Douglas was better known as a producer. Oliver Stone was warned that Douglas would micromanage the film and undermine Stone. Stone hired Douglas anyway, and Douglas did not micromanage. . . 7. This is the only movie to win both an Oscar (Best Actor- Michael Douglas) and a Razzie (Worst Supporting Actress- Daryl Hannah), not just for acting, but in any category. . . 8. Charlie Sheen and Sean Young didn't get along at all. It got to the point where Sheen stuck a piece of paper on her back saying "I am a c***". No-one pointed it out to her. . . 9. Tom Cruise wanted the part of Bud Fox, but Oliver Stone had already cast Charlie Sheen. . . 10. The only Oliver Stone film to have a sequel.
Happy anniversary to A Few Good Men, released 25 years ago today. I actually watched this film about a month ago and it still holds up well. Solid writing from Aaron Sorkin & the acting is a true highlight. It's also a nice time capsule movie. A time when Tom Cruise and Demi Moore were true moviestars and probably at the top of their game. And Jack Nicholson is on hand to kill it in the best way possible. Here are some fun facts about the film: . . 1. Tom Cruise's Jack Nicholson impersonation (when his character is quoting Colonel Jessep) was not scripted. Demi Moore's and Kevin Pollak's reactions are genuine. . . 2. The movie's line "You can't handle the truth!" was voted as the #29 movie quote by the American Film Institute (out of 100). . . 3. The original play, "A Few Good Men" by Aaron Sorkin, opened at the Music Box Theater on November 15, 1989, and ran for four hundred ninety-seven performances. . . 4. The movie rights for the play "A Few Good Men" were sold before it even premiered. . . 5. Jack Nicholson was paid five million dollars for ten days' work. Technically, he worked an extra morning for free when Rob Reiner and crew didn't get all of his footage shot in time. Nicholson later admitted that it was one of the few times the money was well spent. . . 6. Demi Moore was eight months pregnant when she was cast. . . 7. Jack Nicholson only appeared in four scenes in the entire film. The last of these is his famous "You can't handle the truth" courtroom meltdown, which lasts for twenty-one minutes. . . 8. According to Rob Reiner, Tom Cruise would always stay after rehearsals to work on perfecting his role. . . 9. Kevin Pollak called this the greatest experience he's ever had working on a film. . . 10. Jodie Foster, Linda Hamilton, and Michelle Pfeiffer were considered for the role of Joanne Galloway.
