Movie Review: BRIDGET JONES'S BABY Bridget Jones Delivers

Bridget Jones delivers 

Rama is back with another review.

YES! Bridget Jones delivers (see what I did there) once more!

Keeping true to its predecessors, Bridget Jones gives us new aspirations for a perfect love story. Its recipe of romance mixed with a touch of vulgarity, proves modern with all the gushy feelings of a classic! McDreamy and Darcy, festivals, flowers, and f bombs: It’s both outrageous and entirely relatable.

Emma Thompsons dead-pan OBG-YN portrayal is a welcomed fresh new character. Is there anything this woman cannot play? No. The minimalistic approach proves perfect. I mean, when playing a vagina doctor, really, just let the reality of womanhood do the work. It’s already simultaneously depressing and hilarious. Thompson shines with every monotone line!

Perhaps the only set back would be Dempsey as Jack. Not that Dr. Shepherd is necessarily bad, it just didn’t feel as natural. Even so, he still more than managed to add laughter and chaos.

The story has been told before; A middle aged woman struggling with the nuances of normality, weight gain, and alcoholism (Rosé all day), is thrown some sort of curveball: this time it’s a baby. However, director Sharon Maguire manages to make it feel like new. Just when you think, “Yawn, 2 men and baby… psshh… insert eye roll please,” somehow you find yourself crying in laughter at the brilliant slapstick madness. And while it might end in predictable, cheesy-centered happiness, it’s the kind that cynical audiences like us need from time to time.

It’s fun, fantastic, and simply well done. Brava! Bravo!

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
