Men In Black: International is a film which comes directed by F. Gary Gray who some may know as the director of The Fate of the Furious (2017) or Straight Outta Compton (2015). The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rebecca Ferguson, Emma Thompson and Liam Neeson.

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen anything to do with the Men In Black franchise. After 3 films in the series starring Will Smith many years ago, the franchise kind of disappeared. Then out of nowhere sometime last year this trailer was released for a new Men In Black film starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. I wasn’t really sure if it would be any good, but I did like the cast and I’ve always enjoyed this movie franchise so was keen to see the film.

Coming out of the film after seeing it, I’d say I actually really enjoyed it. This film does not take itself too seriously and the director has chosen to place very light hearted tone throughout the entire experience. There are tonnes of jokes throughout the film and while I chuckled a few times, I wouldn’t say it was laugh out loud funny, but I was still sitting there smiling as I was watching as it’s still quite funny and rather fun.

In Men In Black: International the story is that there is someone within the Men In Black who is a mole. No one knows who it is and Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) and Agent M (Tessa Thompson) are investigating. There is also a significant alien threat which emerges throughout the film. The film’s story isn’t too bad, it’s quite light, but it does go well with the film’s set tone. I would say though that if you did analyse it too much, you will probably plot holes and all sorts of sillyness, but it’s not that bad.

Men In Black: International Review

Men In Black: International Review – Agent M (Tessa Thompson) and Agent H (Chris Hemsworth) riding the Marrakesh Hyperloop in Columbia Pictures’ MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL.

With this film I guess being a kind of refresh of this old franchise. It was important to get the characters right. Which is very difficult I believe. Tessa Thompson’s Agent M, is a new recruit to the Men In Black and the film acts as a bit of an origin story for her character. This was good as it helps bring audiences who are new to this franchise in to what the Men In Black franchise is all about. Agent M’s story also has a lot of call backs to Will Smith’s first Men In Black adventure and there are tonnes of references within this film that will make fans smile. Chris Hemsworth’s Agent H, is a seasoned agent and fills I guess the role that Tommy Lee Jones did as a bit of a mentor, but the two characters couldn’t be more different. Agent H is really silly, he’s the centre of most jokes and most of the time I wonder how he even qualified to be in the Men In Black. But what you must remember with this film is that it’s a comedy film first and foremost. Once acknowledging that this film is a comedy film, Agent H actually does fit rather well into this film’s tone and the character is just right for what the film’s director is going for, for this experience.

My only disappointment with this reboot or refresh or whatever they call it, is that it didn’t really do much at all to expand the lore of the Men In Black universe at all all. Yeah we do get some new aliens. But if they just did something to show us more of how this universe operates or expanded the lore in some massive way, it would have been pretty great. If they do make another sequel hopefully they can do more in this area because the Men In Black universe is pretty interesting and there are tonne of possibilities when it comes to its lore that are completely unexplored.

Men In Black: International Review

Men In Black: International Review – Molly (Tessa Thompson) gets fitted for her black suit in the MIB NY office in Columbia Pictures’ MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL.

The action scenes aren’t too bad. Men In Black: International is filled with CGI and very heavy CGI in certain scenes. Much can be criticised about this area and I can see some saying that it’s not that great. But I felt that it was actually enough for what this film was meant to be. I’ve always loved seeing the Men In Black weapons and they looked way better than they ever did in the past in this film. Also the car that they drive is very cool. Towards the end of the film where the major events all happen, there is some satisfaction to be had in terms of the action. Throughout the film there’s also a bunch of very cool alien fights.

In the end Men In Black: International is a film that’s a bunch of fun. It’s a film with a light hearted tone that I think will please most audiences looking for a movie experience this week, where they can just sit there in the cinema and chill out for a while, it’s fun enough to do that. The film has a great cast which includes Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Kumail Nanjiani, Rebecca Ferguson, Emma Thompson and Liam Neeson. They’re all a bunch of fun. It is a heavy CGI experience which is quite good and the action was fairly entertaining. If you go into the film looking for things to be critical of, you’ll find a lot of silly stuff. But if you go in just wanting something fun to see, I think it’s quite enjoyable and I’m happy to recommend seeing it this weekend.

What Men Want is a film which comes directed by Adam Shankman who some may know as the director of Rock Of Ages (2011) or Bedtime Stories (2008). The film stars Taraji P. Henson, Josh Brener and Aldis Hodge.

What Men Want is a film about a female executive named Ali, who works in a sports agency. She’s quite good at her job, but often finds that the males around her keep beating her out for a promotion. But all of this changes when she gets bumped on the head one night after seeing a psychic and gains the power to read men’s minds. The film is a sort of remake of What Women Want (2000) although, it has genders reversed this time with a female main character hearing men’s thoughts rather than a male character hearing women’s thoughts.

I had seen this film release in the cinema not long ago and did not get the chance to see it. Actually it disappeared from cinemas around me so fast, I never got the chance to get out there and watch it. Although, at the time, I must admit it wasn’t my highest priority as it didn’t really look like something I’d want to see. But now that it’s out on Blu-Ray, I got the chance to take a look.

I must say, that this film did surprise me. I thought it was actually rather funny and much better directed and written than I was expecting. Each of the actors were rather pleasant and I enjoyed Taraji P. Henson’s performance in the film quite a bit. The tone of the film is rather light and nothing at all is really done with any seriousness. Somehow Adam Shankman did manage to make something pretty entertaining. Now watching this at the cinema probably isn’t worth it, but renting it or buying it on whim to see it at home just might be. Especially if you really just want a comedy to watch this weekend.

The Blu-Ray disc actually comes with quite a bit of special features. To be honest much more was there than I expected, with many of the special features containing quite a bit of content within them. The special features do take a while to get through, which is good as there’s a lot of content there.

Special Features include

  • Commentary with director Adam Shankman
  • Deleted and extended scenes with introduction by director Adam Shankman
  • Gag reel with introduction by director Adam Shankman
  • The Dream Team
  • Flipping the narrative What do men want?
  • Poker Night
  • Ali + Athletes
  • Sister spills the tea informercial

If you were a fan of this film, the special features on the disc would be rather good to have. But if you didn’t see it at the cinemas and you want to see a comedy film this week, What Men Want isn’t the worse choice you could make and it could be worth taking a look at.

Godzilla II: King Of The Monsters is a film which comes directed by Michael Dougherty who some may know as the director of Krampus (2015) or Trick ‘r Treat (2007). The film stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins and Charles Dance. The film is a sequel and direct followup to Godzilla (2014), you read our review for that film here.

I’ve always liked watching a Godzilla film and there’s been many over the years to see, with the character having a long history of films ever since the first Godzilla film appeared in 1954. The recent reboot of the Godzilla franchise from Warner Brothers, was something I didn’t mind, but I remember sitting there wishing we got to see much more of the monster in that film. With this sequel, I wouldn’t say I was super excited to see it, but I was still a little interested in what they would do the second time around now that the Godzilla origin story was out of the way.

When I go to see a movie like Godzilla at the cinema, I am not really going there for the story. The reason I am going to see something like Godzilla is because I want an action film experience. I want Godzilla to be smashing stuff, I want some monster to be fighting Godzilla and I want all sorts of environmental destruction to occur in the process of this fight. Does Godzilla II: King Of The Monsters deliver this? I have to say yes. The run time of the film is a massive 2 hours and 12 minutes and during that time, I felt that I had gotten everything that I was hoping for when it came to big action moments. Everything I wanted and more was there in this film.

Godzilla II: King Of The Monsters Review

When it comes to the story. I think actually it wasn’t too bad. The story is essentially filled with themes of overpopulation. Similar to Thanos in the MCU, Dr. Emma Russell (Vera Farmiga) has gone mad. She is determined to wake up all the monsters on Earth and have them wipe everything out because all the humans aren’t using the planet properly. After they’re all gone, the Earth can survive and some sort of balance can be restored. During her madness, she wakes up King Ghidorah and no one can control that monster. Will Godzilla be able stop all this though? You’ll have to see it to find out.

In the end, I didn’t mind this film and was quite immersed with all the action and massive battles between Godzilla and King Ghidorah. From this point of view things are well done. Actors are also quite good. I enjoyed seeing Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe and Charles Dance act in this film. All of these four fit in well with the serious tone which the film stuck to throughout much of its run time.

As a film, Godzilla II: King Of The Monsters has very few moments or characters placed there for comedic relief. The tone is consistently serious with the exception of a few minor moments for a joke. This makes this blockbuster, quite different to others currently showing at cinemas currently. It’s a little darker than most blockbusters you may see this year and for some that’s great but for others maybe not, just depends on preference I suppose. But I think it’s something worth knowing before going along to see it.

Godzilla II: King Of The Monsters Review

Overall Godzilla II: King Of The Monsters is a film which I do recommend you go out and see if you are looking for nothing else but action this weekend at the cinema. The story line in this is actually okay, with the tone of the film being rather serious and a little dark. The actors in this film which include Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins and Charles Dance all do quite well and were a joy to watch on the big screen. This film is a strong followup and actually a better film than the first one in the franchise and I’d be happy to see another one from this franchise again some day.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is a film which comes directed by Simon Kinberg. The film stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner and Jessica Chastain.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix is a film which I’ve been quite excited to see. I’ve been a long time fan of the X-Men films and the franchise in general in the past. Of course, over the years, there’s been many of these X-Men films to go and see and some of them are great, while others are not so great. But with X-Men: Dark Phoenix seemingly being the last film in the franchise, I was very keen to see how it might all end.

To be honest with you all. Coming out of the cinema after seeing this, I was a little disappointed. The director of the film, Simon Kinberg, has never directed a feature film before! Looking at his IMDB, while he’s been a pretty great producer and I love his work, I don’t think a film of this scale is the best thing to start out with. While he did okay, considering it’s his first go making a movie. For the most part, X-Men: Dark Phoenix comes across a film which has been highly edited and sitting there watching it, it was quite a jarring experience.

There’s an article I found online not long after seeing X-Men: Dark Phoenix, which does explain the extent of the problems with this film, including the delays, the re-shoots and all the problems the director had before it released. You can find that article here on Screenrant. So in the end, it seems like behind the scenes the film was in quite a bit of trouble and I felt that for the most part when watching the film that it was quite a mess. It’s a shame really.

The plot of X-Men: Dark Phoenix is okay. Although I don’t want to go into specific details as I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for my readers, I must say, honestly, it’s full of plot holes. Characters are not developed properly. This is strange considering how many edits the film has had. The handling of the characterisation of the Professor Xavier character was something I had major issues with, but also the film struggles to really do much at all with Jean as well. The problem I felt, was that in the end of it, in this film, it does struggle to really find a central character for the audience to follow. For a while it’s Jean, then for a while it’s Xavier, then it doesn’t do much with either and in the end, goes nowhere with both.

As for the actors, I felt that they were all individually quite good. The film does give come with a solid cast of likeable actors which includes, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner and Jessica Chastain. They all did as best they could. But most of them were underused and many had little screen time. That’s sort of sad as they’ve been building these characters up for years and fans probably would want a little more.

The special effects are okay. Not much different to the X-Men films in the past, but they could have been better. Some of it looked a little low budget, especially the helicopters. Action scenes are okay. Towards the end, the film has its high point during a long drawn out train fight scene. But in the lead up to it, there’s nothing too memorable. It’s a bit average.

Overall, X-Men: Dark Phoenix is a film I would say you should only rush out and see for one reason. That reason is because you’ve watched all previous X-Men films leading up to this and you want to see how it all turns out in the end. But if you are just looking for an action film to see at the cinema this weekend and you’re a bit over the comic book genre at the cinema, then you would probably be better off going to see Godzilla: King Of The Monsters or John Wick 3 instead.

Always Be My Maybe is a film which comes directed by Nahnatchka Khan and is written by Michael Golamco, Randall Park and Ali Wong. The film stars Ali Wong, Randall Park and Keanu Reeves. Always Be My Maybe is a romantic comedy film about two childhood friends who end up being romantically involved when they grow up.

When I saw the trailer for this film come across my YouTube feed about a week ago, I instantly clicked it because I remember I saw it in my feed with Keanu Reeves in the thumbnail. Not knowing what I was in for and having just watched John Wick 3, I was not ready for a trailer for romantic comedy film. But I watched it anyway and it looked kind of funny, then I forgot about it. Then, this week, the film just came out on Netflix! I had some spare time on Friday night and thought, alright I’m going to check this one out.

The movie is actually rather good. It’s the sort of film you can put on during any night of the week, when you’re not really wanting to watch anything super tense or action based. The film is quite funny and occasionally a little cringey in a good way. None of the characters were annoying at all and that goes for both the main characters and the minor ones as well. What the film mainly offers is basically a pretty chill experience, with a couple laughs from a bunch of pleasant characters.

Ali Wong and Randall Park - Always Be My Maybe Review

Ali Wong and Randall Park – Always Be My Maybe Review

The actors all do a fine job and there are some good ones in Always Be My Maybe. Coming out of this film, I very much enjoyed everyone’s performances. Both Ali Wong and Randall Park, had a good on screen relationship and conveyed their long time friendship and also romantic interest quite well. I also really enjoyed seeing Keanu Reeves in this film. But although Keanu was really only in the film for basically a single act/2 scenes, it still was one of the highlights of the experience. We also get a brief appearance from Daniel Dae Kim who I’ve always been a fan of ever since I watched Lost, so it was nice to see him acting again in something.

Overall, I’d say that Always Be My Maybe is definitely worth taking a look at if you have some time for some Netflix this weekend. These romantic comedy films were quite common in the early 2000’s but lately, films in this genre have been a little rare or when they’ve appeared, they’ve been romantic comedy/action films like The Spy Who Dumped Me. After finishing the film, I thought it was quite pleasant. The actors were all very nice to watch and the overall tone of the film, was pretty chill. If you have been wanting to have a new romantic comedy to watch, I’m happy to recommend you try Always Be My Maybe this week on Netflix.

What/If is a TV series which is currently available on Netflix. It stars Jane Levy, Blake Jenner, Keith Powers, Samantha Marie Ware, Juan Castano and Renée Zellweger. The show comes created by Mike Kelley who some may know for his work on TV series’ such as Revenge (2011) or Jericho (2006).

When I first saw the trailer for What/If appear on my Netflix feed late last Friday night, I was quite intrigued. As trailers go for TV shows, this one does stand out as one of the better trailers for a TV series I’ve seen this year. On top of this, the TV series stars Renée Zellweger and also Jane Levy, who are both very good actresses. The show also comes created by Mike Kelley who has done very  interesting things in the past. What more reason do you need to check out this show?

After watching the series in full, I’d say it’s certainly worth checking out if you did become intrigued as I did by the trailer and the entire look of what the show promises to be. But as a series, I felt that overall What/If was a rather mixed experience with some exceptionally good moments, but also a lot of scenes and other moments which I feel could have really just been cut from the show.

Where the show’s main strength is, is with its central characters and theme. The premise of the show is based on the theme of morality. What if a wealthy woman offered a married couple a substantial amount of money, if she could spend a single night with another woman’s husband? Our main characters, Lisa (Jane Levy) and Sean (Blake Jenner) accept this offer from Anne (Renée Zellweger) and we go from there. Jane experiences the guilt of making the decision, Sean struggles with what he did and Anne has other ideas. This what if style plot is interesting and is the main thing that viewers will find intriguing about the show. The dynamic between the three characters and the tension between them all, is strangely entertaining.

Where the show does not do well, is basically with every other character in the show. There’s other characters in there which serve as distractions to the main plot and are participating in equally immoral exercises. But to me, every other character doesn’t really do much for the show and the actors are all fairly uninteresting as a result. For me when watching the series, it felt more like all the other characters were filler, simply used to stretch out the story so it can get to its 10 episodes.

I did enjoy the performances from Renée Zellweger, Jane Levy and Blake Jenner. These three were all quite good and I don’t think audiences will be disappointed with their performances. I certainly felt that the show was always great when these three were on screen.

Overall, I would say that it’s a good idea to check out this show if you are intrigued by it this week. Renée Zellweger, Jane Levy and Blake Jenner put in some great performances and the tension between their characters provides a solid drama experience. The themes based around morality and the what if style plot line was also quite interesting. The only problem with the show is with all the rest of the minor characters who all didn’t really have anything exciting going on. Spending the weekend watching What/If wasn’t too bad and in general, I thought it was a fairly entertaining and interesting experience.
