Halloween 2018 Trailer 2

Halloween 2018 Trailer 1


Even before Michael Myers starts with the stabbing and the bashing and the strangling and the hammering and the stomping, “Halloween” is one ruthlessly efficient killer of a movie — and I’m grateful for that, dammit! I also have to mention John Carpenter’s music in the film is badass as well!!!

Director and co-writer David Gordon Green’s bloody good splatter film is a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic, picking up the story some 40 years after the events of that film. That means they’ve killed off “Halloween II”, “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” aka "The Night No One Came One!", and “Halloween H20” pretty much wiping the slate clean in a Flashpoint: Paradox way, and Thank God because Halloween 4, 5, 6, 8, and those monstrous Rob Zombie films were Heroin Addictions, other words, those films were just Straight up Bullshit!!! So here’s all you really need to know: Four decades after the masked boogeyman Michael Myers killed three people in the town of Haddonfield, Illinois, on the night of Oct. 31, survivor Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis, yes!) is now a tightly wound, wild-eyed grandma, obsessed with Michael's imprisoned and is convinced he will one day escape and track her down and try to finish the job.

Laurie is like "I wish you would break out and come after me so I can beat yo' crazy ass!"  After anxiously waiting for the sequel to one of my favorite horror movies of all time, I finally got to witness my next favorite Halloween in the series! The storytelling here was paced with excellent cinematography as we revel over Michael's past with his new doctor and two new researchers seeking out the truth of who Michael Myers really is. We then transition to the Strode family which has a modern take on PTSD and its strong effect within the family. The characters and their acting for the most part felt genuine as did their choices in the movie. The humor was welcomed and funny at points but dry at others. However, there was one scene halfway through the movie where I thought they could have taken the moment a little more seriously. Nonetheless, as we slice our way into act 3 and 4, the suspense and emotions start building with a gorgeous rendition of the original John Carpenter's theme followed by newer elements that honestly gave the original soundtrack a run for its money. Get this Soundtrack when you get a chance!

A character choice in the 3rd act completely caught me off guard and initially felt out of place with the movie and its characters. You will know it when it happens. I've been tumbling it around in my head and going back and forth as to whether it was a fitting choice for the smaller character or movie itself. However overall, I am extremely happy to say that this Halloween finally hit the spot for me and in my opinion, not only led the original as sort of a cinematic homage of sorts but also had its own original and edgy story to tell. The beginning of the movie's engine was a little slow at times, but it's minor, I'm not sure it's worth noting because you get right back on track to an event or person that gains your interest. Towards the final act of the movie every single person in the audience had their asses on the edge of their seat and it was almost overwhelming at times with people stamping their feet and holding their breath with suspense. I was stunned by the ending of the movie and the direction David Gordan Green took as it all came to a close. I'm extremely glad to see that even in today's horror standards, we have writers and directors that know how to please their audience. I give this movie a Low FULL PRICE rating! Thank you for finally giving Michael Myers fans the sequel we've been wanting for nearly 40 years!

Now that my review is out of the way, I want to give you some Survival tips in a Halloween movie:

Rule #1: If you have a gun, aim for the head!!! these killers are like zombies, sometimes you have to do the Double Tap rule with these serial killers!

Rule #2: If you finished off the killer, run or drive away as quickly as possible and as far away as possible!!! Do NOT stand around talking about some philosophical garbage, you will die!!

Rule #3: If you're Black, GET THE HELL OUT!!! With the exception of the greatest Rap Beefs of LL Cool J and Michael Myers in H2O, and then that crazy time when Busta Rhymes did Kung Fu on Michael in Halloween: Resurrection, Brothaz don't last in these movies! Do NOT try and fight the killer, I don't care how big, strong, and Black you are, you will get your ass kicked, and probably die, just ask Joe Grizzly, wait a minute...He's dead! Heed these rules well and go out and support this movie! Peace Out!!!


Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer

Bohemian Rhapsody Teaser


Any attempt to recreate the pure magic of the British rock and roll 70s band Queen—all depends upon casting the lead role of the eccentric, ultra-talented Freddie Mercury—in this case, Rami Malek as Mercury wins. Upon his first appearance, we are blown away. His stage presence is magnetic; the specific posture, the strutting, the confidence, the theatrics are Mercury’s initial noticeable traits, and that’s just the first impression when he sings, we are totally in awe. Yes, I’m thrilled to write that Queen fans will rejoice as Malek has given his all in this Academy Award nominated worthy performance.

Also, noticeable is the casting of the other Queen band members—Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, and Joe Mazzello as John Deacon—all of these actors also closely resemble the original band—together with Mercury, their performing, song-writing, shenanigans, camaraderie, and arguments are the best part of the film. Additionally having May and Taylor on board from the beginning gave producer Graham King access to personal archives, wardrobes, and memorabilia, in fact, some of the actors wear actual clothing from Brian May’s closet.

Queen’s legendary set at Live Aid in 1985 bookends the film, with great cinematography, and a stellar performance that has been named one of best live performances of all time. However, the film has faults; it’s in the details, where are the beads of sweat on Malek’s brow as he runs across the stage? Where is the breathlessness? In checking my copy at home of our four disks “Live Aid” DVD box set, sure enough, by the third song, Mercury is soaked with sweat, and he’s clearly panting—taking fast, deep breaths to catch his breath. One would typically look to the director for those mistakes, yet director Brian Singer was fired two weeks before the film’s completion, so in this case, it’s hard to say? Unfortunately, there are other mistakes in the film, mainly, the fact of exactly when Mercury contracted AIDS and when he told the band of his condition. Disturbingly, Mercury’s sexual preferences are addressed in a judgmental tone, and we aren’t given any depth to those relationships. Lastly, there is a scene in which Mercury, supposedly garners a big offer to go solo, causing him to break up the band, but in fact, drummer Taylor already had two previous solo records.

I’m never comfortable with filmmakers changing dates and facts to suit their purposes; however, there’s enough that’s been written about Mercury so fans can easily find the truth. In my opinion, when writers change dates in films, this only causes speculation, and problems for the film. Due to all of the great discoveries about Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” fans may be forgiving. His family heritage is examined, his name at the time of his birth is Farrokh Bulsara, arriving on September 5, 1946, in Stone Town, Sultanate of Zanzibar (now Tanzania) he worked as a Heathrow airport baggage handler and is bullied when called “Paki.” His love for Mary Austin played by Lucy Boyton is clear; he left most of his estate to her and granted her access to scatter his ashes after he passed away from AIDS in 1991 at the age of 45. They remained close even after their divorce, each with new partners; Mercury had a seven-year relationship with Jim Hutton, which lasted until his death. In 1994, Hutton released a book entitled ‘Mercury and Me,’ a memoir of his relationship with the legendary singer, they each wore wedding bands before it was in vogue to do so as a gay couple.

Despite the choppiness, uneven tone, and the cutting from one segment to another without smooth transitions, and the movie not touching basis on how the “Flash Gordon” Soundtrack was made, in the end, Malek’s dynamic performance along with the other band members won me over. The concert arena scenes are truly magical; the pulsating foot stomping of the frenzied crowd, the crowd echo singing along with the band is what makes this film memorable. A sad fact became a realization; as a fan, I never saw them perform in person. However, their music has been recreated to near perfection for Queen fans to enjoy in this very film, and for new younger fans to discover and that is what really matters. I am rating a movie because the critics were to this movie what they were to the actual song, Bohemian Rhapsody, absolutely off the mark. This movie was so heartwrenchingly perfect, I felt inspired at every scene, captivated by Rami's depiction of Freddy. Sometimes, the audience really knows what's real and the critics can take a hike! This one's for you Freddie! I'm really glad the living members of Queen were around to watch this and that they approve. This movie is a testament to the magic of Freddie Mercury, and the reason we should disregard critics who are paid in pig slop! This was pure movie magic - the reason to go to the theatres and experience it on the big screen, even though I will buy the 4K Ultra Blu-Ray when it comes out! HIGH MATINEE!!!


Creed 2 Trailer 2

Creed 2 Trailer 1


When it comes to the films in the Rocky franchise, you can pretty much predict how each film will end when the set-up takes place throughout the first act. This is both a positive and a negative that this franchise faces, due to the fact that the formula of these movies is about as perfect as you get when telling a story like this. When Creed hit theatres back in 2015, I was blown away in thinking that it was in the discussion of best films in the entire franchise. This was a tall order to follow in Creed II and while it doesn't quite hit every stride it needs to in order to be classified as one of the greats, I have very few complaints about this follow-up. This is the way you make a sequel. Young Adonis Creed's past isn't all sunshine and rainbows. His father having been killed by Ivan Drago in the fourth installment has him hellbent on a revenge kick when confronted with the opportunity to fight the son of the man who has put so much pain into his life.

While this premise may just seem like a way of pleasing fans of the cheesy sequels in the past, it really isn't that at all. While the boxing matches are worth the wait, the heart on both sides of the ring is present this time around. With new obstacles to face in his personal life, the arc that Adonis goes through here was fantastic in my opinion. Michael B. Jordan continues to astound me when it comes to his performances on-screen. Even though he hasn't always been in award-worthy films, his performances have always been out of this world. Once again, he embodies this character with enough emotion and energy to carry this movie from start to finish. His chemistry with Tessa Thompson has carried over from the first film and even digs a little deeper this time around. Their relationship reaches new heights, as well as new lows here, which is very reminiscent of the way Rocky and Adrian were in the second Rocky movie. The emotional core to this overall story hasn't been lost and I loved every bit of drama as much as I loved the boxing matches, which were incredible as well.

After Ryan Coogler departed as both writer and director (having done the first film), I found myself slightly concerned that the first would become lightning in a bottle, but that's not the case. Placed in the hands of Sylvester Stallone to write and given to newcomer Steven Caple Jr. to direct made for a nearly superior sequel in my opinion. The flare of this character was brought to the screen in the first in a very captivating way and that's not exactly captured here, but further explored. Taking the characters you love and expanding them is what a sequel is meant to do and this one did that beautifully. In the end, Creed II's only true weakness is the fact that it does feel formulaic at times. You can see where the film is headed most of the time, but that really doesn't take away from the fact that it's extremely effective. I found myself on the edge of my seat during the matches and in emotionally invested in the surprises throughout the course of the film. This truly does feel like the conclusion of certain chapters in this franchise, but I wouldn't mind seeing a third if it can be as well-done as these first two were. Creed II is a fantastic follow-up in my opinion and if you're a fan of this franchise, I highly recommend checking it out. I give this a High MATINEE rating!!!
