You know the saying “they don’t make them like they used to?”  Well, in movies for the most part that’s true.  With the exception of a few filmmakers out there like Christopher Nolan and, to a lesser extent, Mel Gibson, the era of old-fashioned moviemaking has gone mostly the way of the Dodo.  Which is why it’s refreshing to see Kenneth Branagh’s polished version of Agatha Christie’s “Murder On The Orient Express” hit theaters this week.  As old-fashioned as they come in all the best ways, this film is an above average update featuring a captivating story, witty banter, and wonderful performances.

Dog’s Movie House: “Geostorm,” “Only The Brave,” Two Different Sides Of The Natural Disaster Coin!

 

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

Extreme Weather In “Geostorm”

 

 

Timing is everything when it comes to the movies.  Release them at the right time and you have a huge hit on your hands, but suffer the misfortune of real-life events mirroring the subject matter of your film and the audiences will stay away in droves.   Witness this week’s two weather-related films: the disaster fantasy “Geostorm” and the true life tale of the Granite Mountain Hotshots “Only The Brave.”  The two films vary wildly in quality, but both have the misfortune of being released just after an entire slew of very real, very terrifying natural disasters have struck the country.  This means that audiences are going to be understandably disenchanted with the prospect of watching natural disasters reenacted on the big screen for their entertainment.  In the case of “Only The Brave” this is a real tragedy.   Continue reading

The Trailer Dog Park: New “Last Jedi,” “New Mutants,” & More!

Daisy Ridley As Rey In “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

 

 

 

The winter biggies are beginning their full court press in the form of final trailers.  “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” released it’s second trailer and boy, is it a stunner.  Consider my interest ramped to new all time high for this one.  Meanwhile, the new “Justice League” trailer is intriguing for the lighter comedy aspects (especially Ezra Miller’s Flash) but still shows more of the same from the other trailers.  Looking forward to Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, though.   And finally we have our first look at Josh Boone’s “New Mutants” which is presenting the intriguing idea of the X-Men (variations of them at least) in a haunted laboratory setting.  It’s certainly different than any other mutant movie that’s come before.  Enjoy all of them and feel free to comment below!  So Sayeth The Kendog!
