We don’t know what the exact story is for Live Die Repeat and Repeat, but whatever it is, judging by the overflowing whiteboards, it is poised to be super complicated and perhaps ‘revolutionary‘. Time travel stories are often complicated so it makes sense that this sequel would be. The whiteboards actually remind me of the often-used ‘Pepe Silvia’ meme from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which you can see below.
For their parents, however, there might be a few issues. The single biggest problem in Dolittle might actually be Robert Downey Jr.’s accent. While such a simple choice as a voice change might not seem vital, when it’s your lead character, and the accent doesn’t work, it impacts every scene of the film. Downey speaks in this sort of unplaceable English accent that also makes him sound perpetually hoarse. It makes him difficult to understand at the best of times. In addition, because speaking in such a way would obviously not be easy to pick up on set, it means that Downey’s entire vocal performance appears to have been recorded in ADR, and this is noticeable quite often. Digital animals can get away with having words that don’t match the movements of their mouths perfectly; your human lead can’t.
Everything that happens in 1917 feels very real, for lack of a better word. We follow a pair of soldiers on a journey through no man’s land, into a trench, and across a field. Nothing feels fantastic or larger than life. Mendes wanted to see this transition into something else, and for that, he needed to make the one obvious transition in the film itself.
Costuming comic book movies is a tricky thing, as fans expect a certain level of comic book accuracy. There’s also been a habit of putting female characters into skin tight suits, or not enough clothes at all. Just look at Harley’s costume in Suicide Squad, which featured hot pants, heels, and not much else. Rosie Perez recently spoke to Birds of Prey‘s costumes, and her relief about Renee Montoya’s sensible trousers and shirts. As she put it,
In Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, guests board ride vehicles that appropriately look like rats and which are particularly interesting because they are trackless. What that means is, unlike other dark rides at Walt Disney World or Disneyland, like say Peter Pan’s Flight, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride or The Haunted Mansion, your ride vehicle is not bound to a specific and predictable track.
While Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker put all of the main heroes, minus Rose, on a single path, Trevorrow’s script would have split them up, which is normal for Star Wars. We would have seen two different quests. In one, Rose, Finn, C-3PO and R2-D2 travel to First Order occupied Coruscant to light a beacon that is designed to bring all the Resistance allies together to wage a major assault. In the other, Rey, Poe, and Chewbacca, follow Rey’s quest to make sense of her situation, She needs to figure out if she’s worthy of being a Jedi, or if maybe Luke was right, and the Jedi should just end.
What’s more, the fourth Thor movie will see the return of Natalie Portman. Portman starred in the first two movies, playing Thor’s love interest Jane Foster, an astrophysicist who unknowingly gets involved in Asgard’s conflicts. But she’s been noticeably absent since Thor: The Dark World, as the couple broke up off screen. She’ll somehow wield Mjolnir and become Mighty Thor in the movie, although it’s unclear how. It should also be interesting to see how Taika Waititi handles Thor’s weight gain, and whether or not Bro Thor remains in Love and Thunder.
Bad Boys was one of those early movies that made director Michael Bay into the director we know him as today. The film and its sequel are perfect examples of the director’s particular style and both well loved by action movie fans. Now, 17 years later, the franchise returns, without bringing Bayhem along for the ride. While this is a franchise a lot of people have likely been excited to see return, there’s always the fear that after so much time has passed, something has been lost. However, based on the reviews hitting the internet right now, it sounds like Bad Boys For Life is largely worth the wait.
Zack Snyder shared some images of the young Darkseid in action last summer, but this gives us an even better idea of how Uxas leading this battle would have looked like. For those who need a refresher on Justice League, invaders from Apokolips came millennia ago to conquer Earth with the three Mother Boxes, but they were defeated by an army that included, humans, Amazons, Atlanteans, Olympian gods and even a Green Lantern.
Unfaithful was a thriller about Diane Lane’s character getting involved in a steamy affair with a younger man, and her husband (played by Richard Gere) starting to catch on to it. It made $119 million globally on a $50 million production budget, and it received mixed reviews from critics. Still, Diane Lane’s performance certainly hooked audiences, but Nicole Kidman ultimately won an Oscar that year for The Hours.
