Every movie Dwayne Johnson touches gets a surprising amount of attention and Red Notice is another one of those films. The movie would go on to have the most opening-day views for any film in Netflix history. Think about that.
So of course, having Netflix, I decided to watch it and yeah, it’s okay. This is not a movie that’s trying to be good. In fact, it embraces its ridiculousness all the way, resulting in a silly action-comedy that takes it A-list trio and uses them for what they’re good at.
Dwayne is basically Hobbs from Hobbs and Shaw, Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool, and Gal Gadot is a sassier Wonder Woman. They work well together because they’re professional but you can definitely feel the bad script…a lot.
All in all, Red Notice is nothing special but it’s a decent matinee. I’m going to give the movie 75 out of 100 and 3 out of 5 stars.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
Since Netflix made a deal with Rian Johnson and bought his two Knives Out sequels yesterday for roughly $450 million I thought it would be perfect timing to revisit my dream cast for the sequel. Enjoy!
Scarlet Johansson has become a world-renown actress with her various roles on the big screen, namely her stepping into the limelight as Black Widow for over a decade. I can imagine her playing a beautiful femme fatale that leaves you constantly wondering if she’s the culprit behind the murder. Continue reading The Dream Cast of the ‘Knives Out’ Sequel→
I’m sitting here stunned by what I have just seen. Yesterday I watched Wonder Woman and yeah, it has its annoying moments, but overall, it’s a solid superhero film. Wonder Woman 1984 is the exact opposite of Wonder Woman.
Its action scenes, save for the first one in the film’s first twenty minutes, are lame and provide no sense of wonderment. Its story is trying so desperately to speak a profound message that it collapses into its own goals, becoming something that just takes too long to reach something special. And then finally when it seems like the story is going somewhere the climax arrives and it’s just…lame!
The reactions are out and surprisingly, they are overwhelmingly positive. Critics are touting the Wonder Woman to be “uplifting” and “extremely ambitious” and the only gripe that I’m seeing is the idea that it’s a really long movie but hey, I love a good, long movie!
So, here’s a few reactions.
So yeah, it looks like Wonder Woman 1984 is going to be quite the fun experience on Christmas. Thank you, Warner Bros!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a terrific day.
The release date for Wonder Woman 1984 has been moved to December 25…Christmas Day! to replace Dune‘s December release. I, for one, am not overly enthusiastic about the movie. I was but now, after seeing more of Barbera Minnerva/Cheetah, I’m not liking her as the main antagonist of this Wonder Woman sequel.
And that alone is why I will not be venturing to the movie theater on Christmas to see Wonder Woman 1984. What about you? Will you go with your family and friends on Christmas Day to see Wonder Woman kick some butt on the big screen? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
The trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 has finally been released and I have to say, it made me happy. Roles have been reversed with Diana now in the lead of this story with Steve trailing along behind confused like she was in Wonder Woman. And yeah, we finally got to see Cheetah and she looked pretty cool!!! Here’s the trailer.
I’ve got one thing to say. Me likey.
(I’m also relieved to see that the trailer didn’t stray far from the material we’ve already seen but only extended the storyline and a look at the characters. This is exciting and I can’t wait to see this on the big screen. Be prepared for some serious surprises.)
