Movie Review: Diana Is A Cheesy Romantic Comedy Without A Happy Ending

First off, Diana is not as bad as some critics have made it out to be. I mean I did see The Counselor last week so I’m still more scarred from that disaster. The idea of seeing the way Diana lived the last two year of her life was a good one, however the script in which they told her story for it, was not.

The film begins on that tragic Paris night, at the Ritz Hotel. As Diana (Naomi Watts), her lover at the time, Dodi Fayed, and a small security detail enter the elevator to leave after dinner. We watch through a security camera as they go down the elevator in silence. We know what is about to happen next but we don’t see it. Instead the movie rewinds two years before her death. Princess Diana is separated from Charles and living in Kensington Palace.

While visiting a friend in the hospital she encounters, Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews), to whom she gets an immediate attraction too. “The most beautiful thing she has seen,” to put it in her own words. He seems to have barely noticed her, making Diana want him more. Sound like a Rom-Com yet? Thus begins the infamous secret love affair with the Pakistani heart surgeon. From that point on we have an almost cliché romantic comedy, filled with break ups and makes up. Diana is portrayed more like a desperate teenager who will stop at nothing (even stalker procedures) to get the man she wants. And like she says in the film, “I’m a princess and I always get what I want.” Yes, she actually said that, but sadly that was not the corniest line.

Like any good rom-com, when the couple breaks up for good, the girl must breakdown. Time to party, meet a new guy, and make sure it is all photographed so your ex can get jealous.

It is too bad the film was focusing primarily on her love story with Khan. The best parts of the movie are when we get to see Diana do all her charitable work. Including the actions she took to support the International Campaign to Ban Landmines.

On a good note, Naomi Watts did a great job. She looked so much like Diana. Watts wears a prosthetic nose, and works eagerly to capture Diana’s modest expressions and body language. And she nails it! It is just too bad she could not have been given a more powerful script. As for Naveen Andrews, he might have done better if the real Hasnat would have been involved in the making of this film. Instead, he seemed more confused about how he should feel about her in this movie than I did.

Diana has its entertaining moments and could be a guilty pleasure for some, but it might not have been the best way to bring back the memory of Princess Di.

Rated PG-13 for brief strong language, some sensuality and smoking.

Diana hits theaters November 1st.

Interviews: George Takei & Jimmy Hayward Talk Free Birds On The Red Carpet In Dallas

What if the turkey was never part of our Thanksgiving Day meal?

In the new animated comedy, Free Birds, two heroic turkeys must go back in time and stop turkey from ever being on the Thanksgiving menu.

Reel FX Animation Studios in Dallas has completed their first full length animated film.  For their first film, they could not have done any better.  This is one film the whole family should see!  The movie provides a hilarious script, an original storyline, and a superb production quality.

Feeling like he does not fit in with his own flock, Reggie (Owen Wilson) gets an opportunity to become a “lone turkey.”  After a forceful encounter with Jake (Woody Harrelson), Reggie must join in the mission to travel back in time and get the turkey off of the holiday menu for good.  Once S.T.E.V.E (George Takei) the time machine takes them to three days before the first Thanksgiving, Reggie meets Jenny (Amy Poehler) and the rest of her flock.  As he gets to know his new friends and grows feelings for Jenny, Reggie starts to realize he may have found the flock he always wanted to be apart of.

A slew of talent, including everyone from Reel FX showed up for the Dallas premiere of Free Birds held at the Cinemark 17 and IMAX Theater.  Among those talents were writer/director, Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who) and Star Trek legend, George Takei.  Both of these incredibly nice guys took time to chat on the red carpet.

Great job in the film, you have such a defined voice, great for any film or voice over.  What attracted you to this project?

George: “Well first of all, I like the idea.  I think we’re too stayed and traditional; the same old menu year after year. I used to look forward to Thanksgiving, because you know we didn’t have turkey the rest of the year.  The only time we had turkey was at Thanksgiving.  But now, we can have turkey all the time.  And with this movie, I think were going to get people to be creative with their Thanksgiving menu.  We might have fish, or this is Texas, roast beef?  Nice and red and bloody, I like it rare, you know?  So it will set them to thinking.  We know what the movie recommends, and that’s a great idea too.”

jimmy h

So this is the perfect film to get you in the mood for the holidays?

Jimmy: “Oh yeah, absolutely!  The film’s not about what you eat.  The film is more about how you’re a part of something bigger than yourself.  All holidays, doesn’t matter if it is Passover or Thanksgiving or whatever holiday it is.  It’s about pressing pause in your life, and taking time to appreciate the people you love.”

The film talks about how “when you’re in a flock you know you belong.”  Being apart of a flock in this film industry, when did you know you belonged?

George: “When they started casting me (Laughs).  You know, when you’re beginning in this business you’re aspiring.  You go to interview after interview and you talk to them. Then they will say you’re too tall or too short; too fat or too skinny.  And it’s always too this or too that.  I’ve even been told that I’m either too Asian or not Asian enough!  I mean how do I get Asian enough? (Laughs)  Both my parents are Asian you know?  So were my grandparents, and yet they say, you’re not Asian enough (Laughs).  So at that point, you feel like you just want them to cast you so you can show them how good you are once you’re on the set.  But now, when they come to you and say, will you be in our film or do the voice in our film, it’s wonderful and I feel like I very much belong now.”

Jimmy: “I think once I actually got to work with a bunch of people in a group.  Filmmaking is really a collaborative effort.  So you are naturally apart of a flock as soon as you get on a film…provided there a good flock (Laughs).”

You play S.T.E.V.E the time machine in the film.  What would you change if you could go back in time?

“I would probably try to not have the Civil War.  All wars!  I would try to have a world where we don’t have to have wars.  And try to change the world into a happier, productive, well engaged place where we have no destruction.  Unfortunately, today we still have wars and you see the news and the horrors that happen.  So I think that’s the best way to change the world.”

Free Birds is the perfect Thanksgiving film to set the mood for this holiday season!

Movie Review: “The Counselor” is one Boring Philosophical Conversation after Another

Now I did not have super high expectations for this film, but I’ll admit I did expect a certain level of quality given the strong casting.  I easily passed up a screening to see Bad Grandpa, thinking that of course I would rather see a film with an actual storyline and interesting characters.  However, about 10 minutes into the film, I think the alternative might have been more entertaining.

To sum up the film in the best words I can with out confusing myself, The Counselor (Michael Fassbender) is a big shot lawyer involved in a huge drug deal.  He has the love of his life (Penelope Cruz) by his side, in what seems to be the perfect romance. His partners in the deal are the mysterious, riddle talking Westray (Brad Pitt) and the eccentric dressing, spiky haired Reiner (Javier Bardem).  This might be Bardem’s worst hair style since No Country for Old Men.   Anyways, with any drug trafficking deals you are bound to have mishaps, which lead to dire consequences.

The beginning of the film moves slow because of the extended “philosophical” conversations each one-on-one scene has.  Rarely are more than two people on screen together.  Every discussion these characters have is filled with analogies. So much so that you loose all meaning to whatever they are saying.  I am sure there was some thoughtful lessons behind these speeches, but feeling forced and out of place, you simply loose all interest.

This is the first screenplay for Cormac McCarthy (No Country for Old Men, All the Pretty Horses).  Notably known for his novel writing, The Counselor may have been more understandable on paper.  McCarthy fails to write a script with relatable dialogue.  His characters come off as pretentious and rambling snobs.

Reiner manages to be the most practical speaker of the cast.  Especially when describing to The Counselor a shocking moment he had with his sex-crazed, cheetah tattooed girlfriend, Malkina (Cameron Diaz).  In what is sure to go down as one of the raunchiest and biggest WTF scene in a film this year, she performs a spread-eagle masturbation scene on the hood of Reiner’s car.  It is the only thing from the film that is unforgettable.

The actors give great performances, which is no surprise.  With a cast this strong you would think director, Ridley Scott (Prometheus) noticed they were not being utilized in a monotonous script.  It just felt more like they were reading for an audition, giving their all in useless dialogue that does not move the story forward.

Though the big picture of the film was clear the transitions and some of the reasoning for the actions that take place are not.  The Counselor has essentially no plot, outlandish characters, and leaves you with lack satisfaction from an A-List cast.

Luckily, Brad Pitt’s and Michael Fassbender’s performance in 12 Years A Slave is far more memorable than anything they did in The Counselor.

Rated R for graphic violence, some grisly images, strong sexual content and language.

The Counselor opens theaters today.

Movie Review: “Bridegroom” A Heartbreaking Story Of True Love Lost

For anyone who thinks, “Why would getting married make a difference for gay couples?” This documentary is for you.  Inspired by the viral YouTube video posted by Shane Bitney Crone, director Linda Bloodworth-Thomason (Designing Women) takes a deeper look into the life of an unmarried gay couple and what happens when one of them dies after a tragic accident.

Shane and his partner, Tom Bridegroom, both grew up in small conservative towns.  While a vibrant Tom, from Indiana, was popular among his classmates, a quiet Shane was constantly bullied at his Montana high school. Tom’s parents would choose to ignore the thought of their son being gay, while on the other hand Shane’s parents accepted their son for who he was. Shane planned to head straight to Los Angeles after graduation, where the two would eventually meet.   Once they met, they became inseparable.  Tom and Shane were together for six years.  They were living together and were described by others as “the kind of couple that makes you believe in love.”  Tom had even given Shane a ring, but only wanted to get married when California legalized gay marriage. Sadly, in 2011, while taking pictures of a friend, Tom fell four stories to his death.  He was 29.

At this point, you are already broken hearted and can barely watch as Shane and their friends and family discuss his death.  But you are filled with sympathy and disgust when you hear about the lengths Tom’s family took to prevent Shane from attending the funeral or having anything to do with Tom after his death.  The two were not married, so Shane had no legal standing in the relationship. After his passing, it was as if Shane never existed in Tom’s life.

Tom’s parents never responded to a request from the filmmakers to take part in the documentary.  And with out their comments we are presented with a clearly one-sided story.  However, this film isn’t trying to bad mouth anyone or even trying to promote gay marriage. For the most part it is celebrating Tom’s life, and we are shown how he was loved by everyone he met.  Bloodworth-Thomason is able to send a message and prove a point by simply telling the audience what happened through personal interviews, photographs, and an abundant amount of video diaries Shane had made.

Though I was sobbing through most of the film, I did enjoy the documentary.  I like that I never felt like I was being forced to believe a certain way on the topic.  Not once during the movie does someone say “gay marriage needs to be legalized”.  It is through the struggles that Shane went through that we are able to see the after affect that the death of a partner has on you when you are not married.

Virgil Films will release BRIDEGROOM in theaters in Los Angeles on October 18.

Movie Review: “I’m in Love with a Church Girl” is a Lackluster Film with a Spiritual Message

Despite the title, I actually wanted to like I’m in Love with a Church Girl.  I am always more intrigued when a script is based on the writer’s personal experience.  Unfortunately, the terrible acting and painfully cheesy dialogue over powers the dominant meaning behind this story.

Miles Montego (Ja Rule) is a retired high level drug trafficker who has turned a new leaf, and is now working in a profession that is legal.  But for some reason, the DEA does not seem to believe Miles has changed; and has decided to keep a close eye on him.  To make matters worse, Miles is still close to his group of friends/former partners in crime that have not left the dangerous business. While trying to stay on the right side of the law, Miles meets Vanessa Leon (Adrienne Bailon).  Adrienne is different from all the girls he has dated.  He is drawn to her beauty and her faith.   Of course, this relationship is not an easy one.  As Miles is torn between his past life and the life he wants, Vanessa struggles with spending a life with someone who does not share her faith in God.

Writer and producer, Galley Molina, wrote the script while he was serving time in prison.  At first, it was suppose to be a book.  Eventually, the story turned into a film that Molina financed himself so he could have more creative control.   He even rejected an offer from a major studio, because they wanted to embellish on his drug dealing days.   Sadly, I think that might have made for a more engaging story.  I get that he wanted to focus on the journey he had to redemption.  But given the situation, the audience would have appreciated seeing the gritty details that Miles had clearly been dealing with before “surrendering himself to God”.

The film is rated PG and geared toward a more faith-based audience.  So, I can see how they would want to keep things as clean as possible.  But if I’m going to see a film about second chances, I want to see what actions you did before that needed redemption.  The entire film only referenced Miles’ dark past.  We never saw any drugs, let alone hear about what specifically they were dealing.  Since they only alluded to the crimes, the DEA seemed even more random when they would appear on screen.  I kept feeling bad for Miles.  Through out the film he is a sweet, caring guy.  Then all the sudden bad things happen to the people in his life and he is praying that he be punished for his sins instead of them.   I missed the yearning for redemption I would usually want for the protagonist.

Stephen Baldwin plays Jason McDaniels, a DEA in charge of the case on Miles.  Molina chose Baldwin and Bailon for the film because of their “strong Christian backgrounds and for their talents.” I do not know exactly where that talent went when Baldwin was shooting this film.  He might as well have been asleep in each of his scenes.  There was no effort in any of his line delivery.  Yes he was given corny, cliché dialogue, but he just acted like he did not want to be there.  I’m going to avoid talking about the rest of the obviously first time actors, that includes “dear in the head lights” Mr. Loen, and skip straight to the leads.  Ja Rule was a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of his inexperienced cast.  He did the best he could with what he was given, and something tells me he could have handled a more intense script.  Adrienne Bailon was her usual bubbly, head bopping self.  She is beautiful, and she has a lot of energy which makes her likeable to watch.  If the supporting cast put half as much energy into their performance as she did, the film might have been more entertaining.

I’m in Love with a Church Girl has a beautiful message about how God accepts you the way you are, no matter what sins you have done in the past.  I just wish we could have seen what all Molina had to overcome before finally letting God into his life.  He has a great story to tell.  But the movie version of it is so focused on the end result, that we miss all the excitement and the care; which leads to an anti-climactic conclusion.

I’m in Love with a Church Girl  is in theaters October 18th.

Movie Review: “We Are What We Are” is a Horror Mystery that brings new meaning to Family Dinner

After watching the trailer for the new horror film, We Are What We Are, I assumed I would be in for a mix of dark humor with a heavy amount of gore and disturbing images.  I thought that there was no way this movie could be taken too seriously.  But audiences should be delighted in the fact that director, Jim Mickle (Stake Land, TransAmerica), actually gives us a well-told story with a very serious and somber tone.  We Are What We Are carries an unsettling feeling throughout the entire film without having to rely on an excessive amount of blood.

Set in a secluded small town outside of the Catskill Mountains, the film focuses on the Parkers, a reclusive but seemingly normal family.  The story opens with a horrible accident in a huge rainstorm, causing the mother to have a tragic death.  As if things weren’t bad enough, her death happens around the same time the family is just about to go through a religious ritual that has been performed by the eldest woman of the house for centuries.  Still grieving over his wife’s death, the overbearing father played by Bill Sage forces his not-so-willing daughters Iris (Ambyr Childer) and Rose (Julia Garner) to take on the responsibilities of providing meat for their family; and not the kind you can buy at the market.  As the family deals with their own transitions, they are unaware that their horrifying secret is in danger of being revealed.

We Are What We Are is a remake of a 2010 Mexican film that had somewhat of a following among horror fans. I have yet to see the original film.  But from what I have read, co-writers Jim Mickle and Nick Damici have used the same premise and just changed it up a bit. The main change is the gender of the characters has been switched around.  It was the father that died and the mother forces her son to carry on the awful tradition.  Either way, I am now curious to watch the original just for the comparison.

Overall the entire cast gives surprisingly convincing performances.  Ambyr Childers and Julia Garner carry this film.  Being able to sympathize for their characters is what makes the movie so interesting.  Often times when we see a horror flick, we have to endure villains that have no remorse for their actions, and you are just waiting for them to get their karma in the end. Your heart breaks for these girls as you watch their struggle.  The whole time you are second guessing whether or not you should be feeling this way.  You never truly know what these girls are thinking.  On the other hand, there is no questioning what Bill Sage’s character is thinking.  He does an amazing job as the controlling father who stands firmly by his “religious beliefs.”

The best part of this movie is the fact that you are never completely sure what is going on.  You have an idea at times, but you do not know the whole story.  And in all honesty the less you know about the details in the plot, the better.   It’s the constant mystery that adds to the creepiness of the film.  This a smart and serious story that may have some horror fans disappointed because of the lack of blood shed.  Don’t get me wrong, there is still enough blood and graphic scenes that you will wish you didn’t see; just not so much that you lose sight of the originality and intelligence of the film.

Currently playing in select theaters!

Movie Review: “Romeo and Juliet” is a Timeless Tale that has to stop being Retold

As someone who enjoys romantic films just as much as the next girl, I was surprisingly looking forward to the constantly repeated tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.  I had thought maybe this latest version would at least bring some sort of originality to the classic story…I thought wrong.

Douglas Booth and Hailee Steinfield star in Carlo Carlei’s “Romeo and Juliet”

If for some reason you don’t know the story of Romeo and Juliet, or happened to just skip English class that week, let me sum it up for you.  Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet.  The two families are mortal enemies, and must try to avoid each other because otherwise they just want to kill each other, seriously.  When Romeo sets his eyes on Juliet for the first time, it is immediately love at first sight!  No joke; the have already fallen madly in love with each other within the span of five minutes.  Of course this is forbidden love, and their families would never approve their relationship.  Alas, forbidden love develops causing hatred, revenge, and death.

Unfortunately, this tale is very dated.  These days it’s really hard to relate or even believe in a “love at first sight” film.  I get it though, that’s the story and it’s hard to change it up with out upsetting audiences.  But honestly, why do a remake if there is nothing new to bring to the table.  I mean at least, in the Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes version they attempted to set the film in hip modern time.  Not that I thought that was much better.  Shakespeare’s words are not modern.  But, I understand a film maker’s challenge in wanting to try that.  The whole time while watching this 2013 version, I just kept thinking why?  Why is this being redone?  And then Friar Laurence (Paul Giamatti) appeared on screen.

Paul Giamatti playing the Friar is the only reason I can imagine this movie was made.  His hilarious portrayal of a character I usually find uninteresting is actually the shiny silver lining to an otherwise forgettable cast.  Not that the acting was bad by any means.  They were all solid performances.  Ed Westwick made for one very angry, heavy breathing Tybalt.  Haliee Stienfield did a decent job as Juliet.  I’m still unsure just how much of her dialogue she actually understood.  She and Douglas Booth were very much how I would imagine Romeo and Juliet would look.  There just wasn’t much chemistry between the two, and from what I recall, DiCaprio and Danes had no problem generating intense passion.  Douglas Booth did, however, prove to be a strong actor.  After his performance in the Miley Cyrus drama, LOL, he needed to redeem himself; and without question this boy knows Shakespeare.  Every line was passionate and believable, you could understand even the most confusing words based on his emotions alone.

Now if you haven’t seen any version of this film or you don’t know the story and how it ends, then Romeo and Juliet could be very entertaining to you.  Otherwise this is just the same script with different actors.  If they do attempt another remake down the road, I’m wishing we get a complete reboot, and maybe a modern script?  Or even a different perspective of the story, in this case I’d love a version told by the Friar.  Tybalt is such an angry character.  Let’s see what his background is?  Does he have a love?  Just throwing out some thoughts!

Movie Review: “God Loves Uganda” spreads Ignorance but Delivers an Enlightening Message

A disturbing ripple effect shows how conflicting perceptions against others can lead to fatal results.

God Loves Uganda is a powerful documentary about the evangelical campaign to introduce African culture to America’s Christian Right beliefs.  The film starts by following a missionary group from the “International House of Prayer,” also known in the film as IHOP.  The group prepares to spread the word of God to Ugandans and hope they can encourage them to follow biblical law.  Along with the teachings of the gospel, they are condemning homosexuals and banning the use of condoms among a population with a severe HIV rate.  As the documentary continues, we see various religious leaders from America and Uganda including the late gay activist David Kato.  Some leaders fight homosexuality, while others like Kato, try to prevent the hate with their belief that God loves everyone no matter what sexual orientation.

For Academy Award winning director, Roger Ross Williams (Music By Prudence, New York Underground), this was a film with an agenda. Being a homosexual African American raised in the church, this was a subject that also struck a personal chord for Williams.  He does a magnificent job capturing a realistic portrait of these evangelists and reverends, as they clearly have no problem being shed in a bad light. These people are just being themselves and truly believe what they are saying and preaching is completely normal without any consequences. Williams succeeds in delivering a clear message of how the extremists forcing anti-homosexual views to a vulnerable country can expand to others causing a dangerous effect.  Homosexuality is already illegal in Uganda and they are currently trying to pass the “Anti-Homosexuality Bill,” in which same-sex relations could lead to life in prison or the death penalty.  But even without a bill, the citizens have taken matters in their own hands.  They are being taught to be the first country to “stop the homosexuals from ruining society.”

I praise Williams immensely for shooting this documentary.   It could not have been easy for him to sit through some of these interviews and hateful sermons.  At times it was too uncomfortable for me to see such close-minded people trying to do good, when in reality they were causing more harm.  I will hold my tongue on my opinion of the actual topic at hand and try to stay objective.  God Loves Uganda is an eye-opening story that seriously leaves you thinking about what kind of outcome a person’s words can have on society.

God Loves Uganda opens in theaters October 11th.

Movie Review: “Gravity” will have you Struggling to Breathe!

Unlike most people, I had very low expectations going into Gravity.  After all the rave reviews the movie was getting, I just didn’t get how this film was going to be that great.  The previews don’t give you much, and most of my friends and family seemed to think of the film as comical.  I mean there was actually a struggle to find a guest that would see the film with me!  But I can finally say after watching the movie, my friend and I walked out completely understanding the hype while still trying to breath normally again.

First off, I highly recommend you see this film in 3D.  In fact, I don’t even think it should be offered in 2D.  You will miss out on the feeling and experience director, Alfonso Cuarón (Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban), had intended for the film.  Your brain won’t have to follow a difficult plot, but you are still in for an intense thrill ride.

The story is simple: Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) is a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (George Clooney).  But after an accident leaves them drifting in space, they must work together to survive. The simplicity in Gravity is only one of the things that makes this film so exceptional.  Alfonso Cuarón has taken an original terrifying thought, and turned it into a captivating, 90-minute mission of endurance.  The direction in this film is Oscar worthy!  The fluid motion of the camera as it flows throughout the movie makes you feel as if you are floating.  Visually the film is beautiful, and as you are enjoying the view from space you are still panicking about what is going to happen next.

For anyone who thought Sandra Bullock’s Oscar win for The Blind Side was not deserved, I don’t agree with you…and you should just watch Bullock’s performance in Gravity.  She is really the sole actor of the film.  George Clooney definitely serves a purpose and makes for some relaxing comic relief, but it seems like even he wants to let Bullock steal the show.  The moment she appears on screen you might as well be tethered to that space suit with her.  Whatever fear and anxiety her character is going through, the audience is feeling the exact same way.   Watching her struggle made it physically harder to breathe. Personally, I have always known Sandra Bullock is a great actress; but this role definitely solidifies that.  It’s still too soon to predict Oscar nominations, but I would say that she is a lock for the Best Actress nod along with many more nominations for the film in multiple categories.

The best way to sum up Gravity is “breath-taking!”  The visual effects are the best I have seen in any film.  If you were to tell me they shot the movie in space, I would probably believe it.  For now I will assume that is what spaces looks like.  I guess what makes this film stand apart from movies like Cast Away and 127 Hours is those films had some moments of down time.  There were moments where, even though they were stranded, you knew you could relax for a bit because they had managed to make a livable routine in their misery.  But as this film reminds you in the beginning, life in space is impossible.  You can’t breathe, you can’t take a controlled step, and you could just get lost in space forever until you run out air.

Rated PG-13 for intense images.

Gravity hits theaters everywhere today!
