Movie Review: Tully

Kick-Ass Movie Review By: Sandwichjohn

Kick-Ass Movie Review
By: Sandwichjohn

Sorry Late but you know the real world doesn't always leave a lot of time for sitting down to write a review. Kick Ass unfortunately didn't kick ass in the box office but we here at Sandwichjohnfilms definitely thought it kicked bottom, as my 4 year old says. We were very excited for this movie every since we show the first clips which were released, then more so after watching the panel at WonderCon and we were not disappointed.

Kick Ass stars Aaron Johnson as Dave Lizewski, an average high school kid that decides to become a super hero. He hits a few road blocks along the way but becomes a You Tube hit as the super hero Kick Ass. Kick Ass also stars Nicholas Cage as Damon Macready, a former cop who was framed by the local crime boss Frank D'Amico and spent time in prison. Upon his release he trains his 11 year daughter Mindy (Chloë Moretz) to help him fight crime in his quest to bring down D'Amico. Together they form the duo of Big Daddy and Hit Girl. Kick Ass gains the attention of Big Daddy and Hit Girl who thinks he has potential as a super hero. He also catches the attention of D'Amico who thinks he is responsible for the latest assaults on his organization for which Big Daddy is really responsible.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse stars as Chris D'Amico, also known as Red Mist. All the actors and actresses did a great job with their roles. Moretz did an awesome job being convincing as both a ruthless crime fighter and a loving daughter. Although for me I have to admit it was a bit unsettling it was at first to see the young Moretz taking people down as Hit Girl. There is a great story line involving Dave and the girl he likes and other revolving around the father son relationship of the D'Amico's.

The film is violent and the language foul so I definitely wouldn't recommend for kids younger than 13 or 14 no matter how much they beg to go.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
