A Simple Favor
A SIMPLE FAVOR, a stylish post-modern film noir directed by Paul Feig, centers around Stephanie (Anna Kendrick), a mommy blogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend Emily’s (Blake Lively) sudden disappearance from their small town. Stephanie is joined by Emily’s husband Sean (Henry Golding) in this thriller filled with twists and betrayals, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge.
With Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick, how can you not be intrigued. The screening for this one was 1/4 of the way to Orlando so I skipped it, but Kyle and Scott came back talking highly of it and that’s good enough for me. I’ll be checking this one out tomorrow. Until then you can check out Kyle’s review here:
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
You should never pretend to be something you’re not. The Predator thought it was some kind of comedy with one-liners that were missing left and right. Th special effects were not good either. There is just no saving grace for this one and absolutely no silver lining or any other cliche’s you can think of. Trying to pass The Predator off as a potential comedy is like Bert trying to pass himself off as a Fantasy God. Nope. Here are reviews from Scott and Ralph:
White Boy Rick
Set in 1980s Detroit at the height of the crack epidemic and the War on Drugs, WHITE BOY RICK is based on the moving true story of a blue-collar father and his teenage son, Rick Wershe, who became an undercover police informant and later a drug dealer, before he was abandoned by his handlers and sentenced to life in prison.
I didn’t get to see this one, but it is now officially in the rotten category on Rotten Tomatoes. As always, I will still give it a shot. We do have a couple of reviews for you:
That’ll do it for this weekend. Next Friday we will get Life Itself, The House With A Clock In Its Walls and Fahrenheit 11/9. Have a great weekend everyone!
