Movie Review – Bad Boys for Life

 

Movie Review - Bad Boys for LifeBad Boys for Life was awesome. I had so much fun watching this movie that I forgot I was working.

With 17 years passing since the last Bad Boys, I wondered if they’d still have their great chemistry. They certainly do. Smith and Lawrence were both great. Again. Looking back and seeing these guys in these roles for 25 years now really makes me feel old, yet they look fabulous. Still.

It was enjoyable from the beginning to end. Movies that run over 2 hours usually lose me; I get bored way too quickly and fall asleep. Not Bad Boys for Life — I was really into the storyline, which has a lot of twists and turns I wasn’t expecting. There is a lot of humor, just like always, but there is also a tender side to this one that gave it another layer.

I’m not going to include any spoilers, but I really enjoyed how they wove it all together. Make sure to not leave the theater when the credits start. They stuck a little scene in there that will explain what I’m talking about. (20-ish seconds into the credits.)

It wasn’t just Smith and Lawrence that made it great. The supporting cast was just as good. The police force created a new unit (AMMO). Within that unit is some incredible talent which helped brighten the big screen even more. Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, and Charles Melton were fantastic. They’re all young ones, but they had chemistry with Smith and Lawrence as if they’d been with them for 25 years. The age jokes are hilarious!

I don’t think you can go wrong with this movie. I’d recommend it to anyone.

Movie Review – DoLittle

Movie Review - DoLittleCharming, I think, is the best word to describe this movie. But, make no mistake, this is a movie made to appeal to young children. The plot is simplistic and the action cartoonish.

You should rethink seeing this movie if you’re only in it for more Iron Man, but with a British accent. In truth, DoLittle’s character more closely resembles Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow.

If you do have young children, especially ones who love animals — I’m assuming those two sets do not have a one-to-one correspondence, but I’m probably wrong — then this will be a nice treat for them.

The story circles around messages of nonviolence and forgiveness. However, if you haven’t taken your child to see Spies in Disguise yet, then I believe that movie has a more digestible message for children than does DoLittle.

My guess is by the time the kids get to the car all they’re going to remember are the funny talking animals.

Grade: C

About The Peetimes: None of the Peetimes have any of the funny antics and action that kids will really enjoy. I recommend the 2nd Peetime because it’s near the middle of the movie and it’s the longest.

About The Peetimes
Guy Ritchie returns to his roots with a Brit Gangster movie.

As is usual for his films, the action is snappy. It wasn’t easy, but I’ve managed to find a few times when I could get a few scenes long enough to summarize for Peetimes!

Movie Review – The Gentlemen

Movie Review - The GentlemenGuy Ritchie returns to where it all started: the Brit Gangster flick. Albeit, this time with an American lead. I don’t know if Matthew McConaughey was first choice for the lead but, to my mind, he fits it well as the trailer trash Texan who made it to the upper echelons of English society via a Rhodes Scholarship and a talent for selling weed to his upper class chums.

To my mind though, the real star is Charlie Hunnam as his effortlessly scary right hand man, Ray. At the risk of exposing my ignorance, I admit I had to look up his IMDb page to see what else he’d done, and was surprised to find out that he’d been in quite a few things I’d already seen without noticing him. Whether this says more about his chameleonic acting skills or my lack of observation I decline to expand upon.

There were plenty of other acting treats to enjoy. Colin Farrell as Coach was the best I’ve seen him for some time. Jeremy Strong was chilling as the delightfully effete threat to Mickey Pearson’s retirement plans. And as for Hugh Grant and Michelle Dockery, it was like they were in a “Posh? Me? Nah mate; I’m as common as muck, me,” competition both affecting Cockney/Estuary accents; Hugh Grant’s with a little extra ‘camp’ thrown in.

The thing that might put some people off is the language. If you have a particular problem with the ‘C’ word (and I don’t mean codswallop or cor blimey!) then you might find the 20+ uses of the word a bit much. Having said that, I did manage to get about a third of those in one Peetime! If you need to take a positive from this, I suppose it’s that you don’t notice the ‘F’ word so much again (I don’t mean fiddlesticks or flipping heck).

Basically it’s a case of if you liked Lock, Stock and Snatch you’ll like this. Twists and turns, surprises, humor, and action, pretty much from start to end.

Oh! See if you can spot the signs Guy Ritchie has made it during the opening scene and its repeat!

Just Mercy Yes (maybe). There are photos and descriptions about what transpired since the end of the story. However, there is inconsistency in when these extras are shown. In some theaters they come before the credits. In other theaters they come during the credits.

Either way, just stick around until you see the photos and descriptions end.

About The Peetimes
Although this movie is very emotional, it wasn’t too hard picking Peetimes. I avoided scenes that were intense or relevant to the climax of the story.

There are 3 Peetimes. I recommend the 2nd one.

Movie Review – Just Mercy

Movie Review - Just MercyThis isn’t just another twisted racist movie about white cops harassing and arresting black folks. No, this one has a little different spin to this true story, and well presented, I might add. Since we all may be too familiar with movies about poor “race relations,” I will keep this review brief to avoid spoilers.

I was pleasantly surprised about the storyline and how the events unfolded. Brie Larson and Michael B. Jordan did an excellent job. At first, I thought that Michael was too timid and maybe inexperienced for this type of role, but then I remembered his character being a young recent graduate from law school, who then moved from the east coast to the south to pursue law for free. I realized he wasn’t inexperienced per the role for the movie, but for the role as a recent attorney thereof. The intensity and complexity of his good intentions truly got the best of his mellow and mild-mannered Harvard essence at times. Good job Captain Marvel and Killmonger; I mean, Brie and Michael. LOL!

Pay attention to the contrast between the white and black neighborhoods, the mentality of the people in the town, and how there was zero KKK presence. Interesting! Let me know below in the comment section what stands out to you during the movie.

Again, a good dramatic story deserving a solid A, illustrating why we should always do the right thing for the right reasons.

Movie Review – Underwater

Movie Review - UnderwaterUnderwater was much better than I was expecting. I had fun watching it;  they definitely did a great job with the suspense. I took my granddaughter with me and she whispered the funniest thing to me half way through. She says, “Don’t worry Grandma, I’m not gonna ask you to take me to the beach again.” She tells me in the car on the way home that if things like that could exist, she wants no part of the ocean again. Thanks Hollywood — no more sunburns and sand in my car.

I have one major positive and one major negative thought on this film.

The positive side: they did a fantastic job showing you their fear. I could feel the tension — it oozed off of the screen. Many times I put myself in the situations they are faced with, and I figured out that I would have been the first to die. Well played, actors.

My negative side: I wish we would have been given more on the characters back stories, especially Norah’s. (Kristen Stewart) That girl wouldn’t give up. They put in a quick scene about her past, but it was rushed and not very detailed.

Overall, we had a great time and weren’t disappointed.

Grade: B+

About The Peetimes: This movie is short, but jam packed with scenes that just don’t fit into Peetimes. If you use the 2nd Peetime, be sure to get back to your seat before the Peetimes ends, because there’s a critical scene you can’t miss.
