Welcome back to Awesome Friday, on a Sunday! In this week’s episode, we speak at length about a little movie you might have heard about from last year, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has finally come to home video. Then it’s onto a new release from Focus Features, The Outfit, a single location mystery thriller starring Mark Rylance and Zoey Deutch. Join us!Continue reading “Podcast: Spider-Man: No Way Home & The Outfit”
Pete Docter is one of the best directors of animated features working today. That might sound like hubris, but it isn’t. Each of his films is adorable, approachable, and visually stunning enough to warrant the praise, but each also has a core of love and acceptance that makes them universal. The marriage montage in Up! or the simple truth that sadness plays a key roll in our lives from Inside Out, Docter makes movies that tell truths.
Soul, his latest film, is no different.Continue reading “Review: ‘Soul’ cements Pete Docter as one of our great storytellers”
Yes, you read that right. Jamie Foxx, who starred as Electro in the worst Spider-Man movie is in talks to join the case of the upcoming sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home.
How is that going to work? No idea!Continue reading “Jamie Foxx in talks to return as Electro in the next Spider-Man movie.”
There’s a new Robin Hood movie coming and so help me god it looks fun. Like, actually fun. Let’s take a look!
Every movie gets character posters now, why should **Baby Driver** –a movie reportedly filled with characters– be any different?
Buckle up, this is the best trailer yet and you’re about to get a song stuck in your head.
Remember that film that came out in 2011 about three schmucks who try to kill their bosses? It made all the money so here comes a sequel. Good news though: the cast is still amazing. Bad news though: it still looks like a retread.
I’ll give you a full review after the jump but let me take a moment right now to just give it to you straight: this movie is fucking awful and you shouldn’t see it. In fact I think it might be best if as few people as possible see it because if it doesn’t live up to Sony’s expectations then maybe we’ll be spared more of this crap.
The following review will contain some minor spoilers but you shouldn’t see this movie so it doesn’t matter.
Those of you who have been craving a blue, veiny bust of Jamie Foxx will finally get what you’ve been waiting for: A blue, veiny bust of Jamie Foxx.
They’ve remade Annie. They’ve stacked the movie with a talented cast but will it be any good? From this trailer? I dunno.
Here’s a new Amazing Spider-Man trailer debuted today featuring all the villains. Well, Electro and then also some brief shots of Goblin and Rhino.
Alright folks it’s finally here: A trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. This is where I’d normally just sigh and say let’s watch but this time around I have to point out that you should maybe not watch this because while it doesn’t really have much in the way of plot details I (and half the internet it seems) are pretty sure that it spoils the end credits scene of the movie (yeah, wtf is that) and at the very least some set up for the already green lit Amazing Spider-Man 3 and 4. Ugh.
Ok, let’s watch.
A few months ago there was a movie about a [paramilitary group attacking the White House](https://awesomefriday.ca/2013/03/matt-watches-bad-movies-olympus-has-fallen/). It was a terrible, cliche ridden film which took itself far too seriously to be good.
Naturally, since these things come in twos, White House Down features a paramilitary group attacking the white house. Is it better than it’s predecessor? Yes, absolutely. Is it good? Weeelllllllllll…….
