These Look Like Fun: Maverick and Avenue 5

Tom Cruise Maverick

Once upon a time there was a little girl who liked books and was just getting over an illness when she looked upon the television and saw a movie with hot guys with attitudes in uniform, fast planes, motorcycles and thought… oh, I like this.

It’s going to be my childhood classic.

Trailer Wrap-up & a 2020 Predication

Mulan

It’s been a crazy good couple of days for movie trailers or first looks. It’s kind of like Hollywood is easing us into 2020 like yeah, another decade of everyone’s lives are done and over but hey there’s some hopefully good movie shit coming up.

My Hopes are Raised: The Black Widow Trailer is Here

black widow returns

Black Widow was on my top 5 most anticipated 2020 films for next year solely due to the supporting cast Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh and of course big bearded David Harbour. After the new trailer I’m more hopeful for the movie as a whole!

Fast Cars & Jon Bernthal

Ford v Ferrari

Ford v. Ferrari

Directed By: James Mangold

So the last time I went to a movie for fast cars and Jon Bernthal was Baby Driver and it actually made me ill (motion sickness) and gave me a migraine that no amount of drive-by Bernthal appearances could cover.

It was with some trepidation that I went to see Ford v Ferrari.

Dream Holiday Films & Rambles

North Pole in Noelle

I was thinking about a list of things that would make a perfect holiday film for me. It was a childhood dream to be an elf in the North Pole- so there’s that… But then my mind went – Jason Momoa or Tom Hardy can be Santa and then I started thinking…

Hey why shouldn’t Venom 2 be Christmas movie?

And it pretty much went downhill from there 🙂

Noelle & Santa Bill

North Pole in Noelle

Noelle

Directed by: Marc Lawrence

I like the whole cast of Noelle and if I’m going to watch a Christmas movie it better be somewhat at the North Pole.

So no I’m not going to admit that I may have signed up for an entire streaming service just to see Bill Hader play a Santa in training. Nope. Not admitting that.

I Hope it Hurts: Doctor Sleep

Danny Torrance in Doctor Sleep

Doctor Sleep

Directed By: Mike Flanagan

Having not read the book I went into this movie expecting it to lean heavily on Danny Torrance and his return to the Overlook Hotel- the haunted hell hotel where the events of The Shining took place.

I was pleasantly surprised that the highlight of this movie was the war between Rose the Hat and young justice seeking Abra.

Wait what about the Movie?

Dracula

Dracula

By: Bram Stoker

Aside from over romanticized modern vampire stories my knowledge of Dracula is mostly based on the 1992 movie. Gary Oldman played Dracula. Winona and Keanu might have gotten married. Watch the movie. It’s great.

I was still a little nervous about finally picking up the novel.
