Dog’s Movie House: “The Fall Guy” An Hilarious Salute To The Movie Stuntman!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at David Leitch’s new film titled “The Fall Guy.” Now if that title sounds familiar it’s because the film is loosely based on the television series featuring Lee Majors that ran for five seasons in the 1980s. This version feature’s Ryan Gosling as Colt Seavers, a professional stunt man who drops out of the industry for a year-and-a-half after a nearly disasterous accident. He’s lured back into the movie business when he finds his one-time crush Jody (Emily Blunt) is directing her first big-budget film. When he gets there, Colt finds himself involved in a dangerous plot featuring a missing star, a murdered stuntman, and a somewhat vengeful would-be girlfriend.

Dog’s Movie House: “Barbie” A Layered, Funny, Clever Film About The Soul Of A Toy!

“Ideas are forever! People are definitely not!” This line is spoken Ruth (Rhea Perlman) to Barbie (Margot Robbie) near the end of the film and it got me thinking about the many, many ideas Greta Gerwig’s take on the iconic toy.

Biopics are tricky things.   Do them right and you get a riveting cinematic incarnation of some of histories most important events.  Do it wrong and the audience is falling asleep just like they did during high school history class.  Fortunately, “First Man” is solidly in the former category although it does have a few flaws.   Plus we take a look at “Bad Times At The El Royale” and last week’s champion, “Venom.”

Dog’s Movie House: “Blade Runner 2049″ A Masterpiece, But Not For Everyone!”

Howdy Folks!  It’s The Kendog!

Ryan Gosling as “K” in “Blade Runner 2049”




Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner” from 1982 has transformed from a misunderstood underperformer at the box office at the time of its release to a science fiction classic almost four decades later.  There are several different versions of the film to view, discuss and dissect with friends or foes, and the film’s look is still beautiful all these long years later.   But make no mistake, “Blade Runner” is not a slam-bang action flick:  it takes it’s time to tell the story and those who find themselves disinterested in said story will find the film to be slow and uninvolving.  The same can be said for Denis Villeneuve’s follow-up, “Blade Runner 2049.”   Continue reading
