Longlegs is an instant horror classic and incorporates great visuals and film techniques from the best the genre has to offer. The movie is unsettling from start to finish. The score is absolutely haunting, and you’ll see Nicolas Cage as you’ve never seen him before. See my non-spoiler full review and be sure to catch the movie this weekend!

The Bad News Bears meets Long Beach California in MGM’s ‘The Underdoggs’

Published

on

A formula that has worked many times in the past, but this film doesn’t shy away from it, it embraces it. The Underdoggs features Snoop Dogg and comedian Mike Epps in a “laugh-out-loud-near-parody of other youth sports team with a less than ideal role model” movie. You won’t be surprised to learn that this film is also Rated R and deservingly so. In the first frame of the film, you are welcomed with a sort of welcome ad that sets the tone right away that you wouldn’t bring your 8-year-old to see this.

Snoop as Jaycen “Two Js” Jennings is intriguing. The legendary rapper is mostly mild tempered or laid back when he appears in interviews or other movies. In The Underdoggs he spends most of his time cursing out children which sounds less appealing than it actually is. Most of the humor from his character comes from berating other characters, whether it be the kids on the team or veteran comedian Mike Epps.

Mike falls directly into the role he’s been playing since Friday After Next as Day-Day. I half expected Ice Cube to make some kind of appearance in this film, but it doesn’t happen. The story is quite familiar, but you are never too comfortable with the on-goings on screen. The shenanigans of the kids, the banter between Snoop and Epps, or Andrew Schultz as the insufferable Chip Collins is enough to keep you on your heels or the floor laughing. The Underdoggs is now streaming on Prime Video and if you sit down to watch it, don’t bring your 8-year-old or your momma.

Synopsis: Jaycen “Two Js” Jennings (Snoop Dogg) is a washed-up ex-professional football star who has hit rock bottom. When Jaycen is sentenced to community service coaching the Underdoggs, an unruly pee-wee football team in his hometown of Long Beach, California, he sees it as an opportunity to rebuild his public image and turn his life around. As Jaycen works to transform the foul-mouthed Underdoggs into top-notch champions, he reconnects with his past, including an old flame and few of his ex-teammates and rediscovers his love of the game.

Kumail and cast bring the laughs in the hilarious ‘Migration’

Published

on

Ted aka Steady is back with a new review and this time its Illumination Entertainment’s Migration.

This holiday season, Illumination, creators of the blockbuster Minions, Despicable Me, Sing and The Secret Life of Pets comedies, invites you to take flight into the thrill of the unknown with a funny, feathered family vacation like no other in the action-packed new original comedy, Migration.

The Mallard family is in a bit of rut. While dad Mack is content to keep his family safe paddling around their New England Pond forever, mom Pam is eager to shake things up and show their kids—teen son Dax and duckling daughter Gwen—the whole wide world. After a migrating duck family alights on their pond with thrilling tales of far-flung places, Pam persuades Mack to embark on a family trip, via New York City, to tropical Jamaica.

As the Mallards make their way South for the winter, their well-laid plans quickly go awry. The experience will inspire them to expand their horizons, open themselves up to new friends and accomplish more than they ever thought possible, while teaching them more about each other—and themselves—than they ever imagined.

Cast: Kumail Nanjiani, Elizabeth Banks, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key, David Mitchell, Carol Kane, Caspar Jennings, Tresi Gazal and Danny DeVito.
