Two Super Mario Bros Films
I heard there would be a film about Super Mario Bros. I thought again. Yes, there was a film about Super Mario Bros. But it was live-action with John Leguzano and the late Bob Hopkins; the film didn’t do much in following the story of the game; in fact, too many, it was pretty sloppy, and here is why.stephanie borgesPublished 19 days ago in Geeks
Fast X ;review
Has the Fast & Furious franchise earned a victory lap? That’s the key question behind an appraisal of “Fast X,” a film that brazenly plays like a Greatest Hits collection from a hit artist. Not only does it directly link to the massive, franchise-turning “Fast Five” in its narrative, but it constantly recalls other films in this series either through direct mention or action beats designed to recall similar moments in movies like “Fast & Furious 6,” “Furious 7,” and “The Fate of the Furious.” The script by Dan Mazeau and "Fast Five" director Justin Lin (who left the film after creative differences and whose absence is felt in terms of action choreography) is like a snake eating its own tail, often playing like a parody of the franchise more than a new entry that cruises on its own four wheels. Even as it’s spinning through enjoyably goofy action set pieces, most of them enlivened greatly by a fun performance from Jason Momoa, there’s a desperate familiarity to all of “Fast X” that makes it even more like reheated leftovers than it has before. This is reportedly the start of a trilogy that will close the series. Let’s hope they come up with at least one fresh idea in the next two flicks.Imeth GithsaraPublished 19 days ago in Geeks
