Soundtrack Review: #Zoolander2

Much like the film, Composer Theodore Shapiro's score fails to find its pulse.

Review by Matt Cummings

A seriously good soundtrack starts with a message, something that binds the music to the film. Think Star Wars. James Bond. Unfortunately, Zoolander No. 2 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is lacking that element, instead riding a wave of set up music and never quite reaching its potential.

When world famous pop stars are murdered by a shadowy organization, Interpol Agent Valentina (Penelope Cruz) suspects that their final poses on Instagram look suspiciously like those of fashion icon Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller). Unfortunately, he's been out of reach for over a decade, living in seclusion after losing the rights to his child and witnessing the death of his wife. His friend Hansel (Owen Wilson) has also been living away from the runway, now a part of a multi-marriage family in the desert. But when the two are offered a chance to return to the fashion limelight, they find themselves mocked as hasbeens. Determined to reunite with his son, Zoolander, Hansel, and Valentina join forces to uncover the mastermind behind the murders, which might include their nemesis Mugatu (Will Ferrell).

Composer Theordore Shapiro (Trumbo, The Devil Wears Prada) certainly knows how to bring winning scores to the big screen. With a film like Z2, it's important to continue the high-stakes hilarity, all while making things look as deadly serious as possible. In fact, his work here would have succeeded in most action spy flicks and felt completely at home next to martinis, spy gear, and beautiful but damaged women. We saw the same happen with 2015's Penguins of Madagascar, but it works better there. I think the answer is surrounded by the fact that No. 2 doesn't have a musical theme. Sure, it could have borrowed elements from Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Wham!, but that's hardly enough to build a score around. So while it might be clearer why Shapiro chose otherwise, the results are still flat.

Bieber Chase and Get Your Boy arrive ready to say something, but each find themselves lacking that theme. By the time the fourth track Change Is arrives, we've settled right back down into set up music rather than stretching out our feet to enjoy some great orchestral soundtracks. The same happens with Too Convenient and the National Treasure 2-inspired Confessional. With the latter, we get another taste of Shapiro's skills right around 2:00 in, when you think there's finally something big coming. Although it arrives soon after the good feelings don't stick around enough for us to enjoy them. Ditto for Blood of Steve at 1:15.

No. 2 might be good music to drown out the day's mayhem, but it won't inspire you. I've enjoyed Shapiro's work over the years, having overplayed 2015's Spy and enjoyed every minute of it. Zoolander No. 2 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack doesn't hit that mark; and much like the film, this score is sure to be quickly replaced.

Zoolander No. 2 - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available everywhere.

Movie Review:'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny'

Outside of great action sequences, the weak sequel fails to keep our attention.

Review by Matt Cummings

To say that 2000's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is still a beloved film might be an understatement. The winner of four Oscars and nominated for six more, the film was a worldwide sensation, proving that Kung-Fu wasn't skin deep and that character dramas could exist quite well alongside insanely good action. But that was nearly two decades ago: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny barely warrants our attention, reminding us that sometimes follow-ups are hampered by the original, and other times betrayed by their own motives.

Set 20 years after the death of Li Mu Bai, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, sees our heroine Yu Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh) living a life of solitude. While travelling to the funeral of an old friend, her convoy is attacked by the powerful Hades Dai (Jason Scott Lee). With the help of an unknown ally (Donnie Yen), Lien is able to escape, only to learn that the clan is after Bai's famed Green Destiny sword. Realizing that the funeral will itself turn into a bloodbath, Lien sends word out to her Iron Way comrades, which draws only five but very capable individuals. Led by the memories of her past and the destructive history behind Green Destiny, Lien must protect Green Destiny before Dai's team can seize it for their leader.

Destiny's problems begin early, as we never really get to know anyone except for our love interests. We don't understand how Hades Dai plans to use Green Destiny or why the sword is still revered as an ancient version of a WMD. The original explored that enough to make you think Green Destiny was actually alive. Not here: it's just a strong sword who in anyone's hands wouldn't be any better than if they had brought a lesser-made sword to the same party. Destiny also fashions the thinnest love story possible between Lien and Shadow, who were supposed to marry before Li Mu Bai entered the picture. Yen and Yeoh enjoy good chemistry, but there's simply not enough in Writer John Fusco's chintzy script. Those problems follow almost every character, holding back their potential in ways too numerous to count. Everyone becomes a caricature, from the drunken warrior to the beautiful assassin with perfect skin.

But Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny isn't all bad. Director Yuen Woo-ping provides us a lot of his textbook choreography, all of which we drink in like we've been walking through a desert of lesser action. In this way, Asian cinema has us beat. Destiny is also a beautiful film, enjoying a dual-format release (theatrical and on Netflix) and showing off 4k bleed-down in minute details. Ping provides us with fantastic action sequences, including quite an entrance for Yen. But that's where the comparison with its predecessor flatly ends, as Destiny soon becomes just another Kung-Fu flick, complete with cheesy lines and a tone that whipsaws between pretend serious and nearly slapstick. The original succeeded because it took the best elements out of the genre and merged it with a quality story. I know there's one in there, but it's pretty deeply buried.

The end of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny certainly suggests that we'll be receiving a third film, something that I think only superfans of either the franchise or the genre would care to know. This one is disappointing enough that a much more serious conclusion is the only way I'll pay attention. This one certainly isn't awful, but it utterly lacks a comparison to the original.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny is rated PG-13 for martial arts violence and brief partial nudity and has a runtime of 96 minutes.

Movie Review: 'Triple 9'

The dark and of ugly world of Triple 9 tells us more than we probably want to know.

Review by Matt Cummings

For a person who finds himself loyal to our country's police forces, Triple 9 sends a scary and unfortunate truth: those who protect us sometimes get swept up in the world they try to protect us from. I just wish the hard action and duplicitous nature of its excellent leads would have amounted to something in the end.

The city of Atlanta is not only filled with a bevy of undesirable gangs but a team of cops that are as corrupt as the people they hunt. At its center is a crack team led by Atwood (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his partners Belmont (Anthony Mackie), Welch (Aaron Paul), his Special-Ops brother Russell (Norman Reedus), and the detective Rodriguez (Clifton Collins Jr.). Scoring heists in an attempt to free Atwood's son from the clutches of the Russian-Jew gangster Irina Vlaslov (Kate Winslet), the team are faced with a final, nearly impossible challenge: raid a Homeland Security transfer station while keeping the police far away. They realize the best way to make such a plan work is to kill a fellow cop (Casey Affleck), whose Johnny-Be-Good nature instantly rubs his new partner Belmont the wrong way. Their execution of Chris will set off the famous '999' alarm, sending every cop in the region to one location while Atwood and his men carry out Vlaslov's never-ending demands. The result will see loyalties tested and a bloodbath that begins and ends with one man's love for his son.

For all the mayhem it pursues - deftly crafted by Lawless' John Hillcoat - Triple 9 makes you want to dislike and mistrust the police in a way that feels very unhealthy. Hillcoat and Writer Matt Cook weave a plot designed to gray out any love for its considerable cast; but I suspect that's the point. By the time you get to the excellent ending, you'll be happy that so many find their ends by purely violent means. That's not a spoiler at all, rather a message by our creative team: mess with the system, and it eventually processes you out in said violent manner.

And yet, Triple 9 will wear on you. For nearly two hours, we see what seems to be an entire city of crooked cops and ex-military men centered on making the world right for themselves, with the gangs actually looking like victims for once. Things get started early with a 10-minute opening that must have clogged Atlanta's streets for days, and that's the prettiest things ever get. And all of this happens without a lot of exposition as to why, which becomes a real problem in the turgid third act. A late-minute assassination here, a blown up vehicle there, and the whole thing feels Cook and Hillcoat got on a rollercoaster ready to perform the science of it but eventually say "fuck it" as they scream their heads off in the loop-dee-loop. Perhaps anything deeper would have True Detective-d this, but one might find themselves yearning for a little explanation.

But you ain't getting one, as Triple 9 assaults us with perhaps the best cast of 2016 so far, hoping we'll enjoy their absolute command of the screen. Ejiofor, Affleck, Collins, and Mackie make a pretty unbeatable team, with Ejiofor showing his range from do-gooder in The Martian to his best boil-burn-desperation here. He's clearly a man on the edge, unable to see his son as Vlaslov turns down the clamps on Atwood's team. But when his revenge moment arrives - and you knew it would come - we're actually happy for him, until we realize that he's just as much scum as the rest of them. That moment plays really well, and you'll hate yourself for at once appreciating his skill but hating him just the same. Collins and Mackie get dark as well, with Collins' cut-throat sensibilities coming off as almost barbarian. Mackie is so consistently good in every role he's in that it's sometimes hard to give him that credit because his best is always on display.

In Triple 9 you get a wide selection of performances, most of which come off perfectly tuned. There's over-the-top bitch in Winslet, understated but absolutely badass in Affleck, way-past-the-line freak in Paul, and even way-past-transgender in a cameo by Michael K. Williams of all people. And then there's the perpetually drunk/stoned/whack job Woody Harrelson as Chris' uncle, whose performance makes you wish we didn't have cops. Perhaps the one that feels out of place is Gal Gadot's Elena, who's never around enough for us to get to know. In the end, she's just pretty Russian trash whose gangster mother won't give her and Atwood the time to build their family. But it's Winslet's transformative performance that's so incredible - I literally didn't know who she was until the credits started rolling. She gives Atwood everything he can handle and more, with a grace and style (hot red leather boots and all) of a queen bee. Her demands eventually run this team into the ground, and it's almost sickening how much I enjoyed it. That's the power one well-built character can have on a story.

It's entirely possible that you could emerge from Triple 9 wondering what the hell you just watched but loving every minute of it. On the other end, you could feel completely detached by a script that doesn't care about the reasons for its graying loyalties and motives. That's both the beauty and frustration behind this intriguing picture.

But one thing is clear: Triple 9 exists to share an uncomfortable truth, that while many police officers protect our streets, we always remember the dirty ones. Given all the madness that's happened recently in towns across America with those in law enforcement, Hilcoat might be telling us something we probably already know. Whether that works or not here is for you to decide.

Triple 9 is rated R for strong violence and language throughout, drug use and some nudity and has a runtime of 115 minutes.

Movie Review: 'Gods of Egypt'

Gods of Egypt deftly builds up its universe, while its horrible CGI and cheap laughs burn it all down.

Review by Matt Cummings

As we prepare for the imminent release of the Egyptian fantasy Gods of Egypt, it's drawing the kind of attention that I'm sure it would rather not. Sure to be compared to last year's disastrous 2015 Jupiter Ascending, Gods builds an impressive universe with a good (but white-washed) cast, while wasting its capital with cheap storytelling and terrible special effects. The result makes Jupiter look like the next Harry Potter.

Set in the period of the great period of Egyptian history when gods were said to walk among the people, Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is nearly crowned king by his father Osiris (Bryan Brown) when Horus' nephew Set (Gerard Butler) steps in to challenge the throne. Unfortunately, Set gets the better of Horus, killing Osiris and plunging Egypt into slavery, leaving Horus blind and unsure of his future. But some humans like the thief Bek (Brenton Thwaites) and his girlfriend Zaya (Courtney Eaton), believe that Egypt is far better with Horus and plan to get Horus’ eyes back from Set’s booby-trapped vault. But after an unexpected tragedt, Bek is forced to enter into a tense partnership with Horus, who sees humans as only good enough to fetch him water. Faced with the news that Set is murdering gods to take their powers from them, the duo must forge alliances with the lord of the light Ra (Rush) and keeper of wisdom Thoth (Chadwick Boseman) before Set can complete his diabolical plan with the help of the human architect Urshu (Rufus Sewell).

It may not seem like much when one considers the role that story plays in a film, but for Gods of Egypt the CGI nearly ruins the experience. It not only looks like television (no offense to The Flash or Legends of Tomorrow), but the actors are clearly interacting with digital sets. Colors and shadows don't match, action feels disjointed, and the "Reverse Hobbiting" looks like they merely stretched out the demigods instead of giving them weight and mass. The whole thing reminds me of the soundstage disaster that was Fantastic Four. If your universe is to be built on visuals, you'd better get it right. Audiences might also cringe at the lack of diversity here: Gods of Egypt suggests that most deities in that pantheon were white, which is forwarded by a good corps of actors. But when the people of Egypt themselves are cast as mostly white, that's a problem. Any guff this film is getting for missing that point is well deserved.

But Gods of Egypt doesn't really care about that: it's concerned with big, bold set pieces, cheesy (but sometimes effective) dialogue, and brash tactics that conclude way too early and with little effect on our characters. We really don't feel a sense of worry for them, even though Proyas stacks up that acting talent in an effort to deflect Writer Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless's shortcomings. Butler can't (and doesn't seem to want to) escape his iconic Leonidas, but there is a moment when his humanity is allowed to come out, courtesy of Rush's gentle love for him. Thwaites and Coster-Waldau have fun buddy-cop chemistry, while Elodie Young gives off sensual cool. But her potentially impressive backstory is minimized as is Sewell, who's really the only actor whose lines jump off the screen. You'll love Young's suggestive clothing, but hate how she's minimized throughout.

And while Composer Marco Beltrami's score makes for some good playlist-ing, Gods of Egypt doesn't work in a variety of ways. I wasn't sure why Proyas was on the Hollywood Outside looking in, but now the answer seems a little more clear. Check it out on a matinee and with zero expectations, and you might find yourself enjoying its playful mood. Otherwise, add it to your Netflix streaming - believe me, it won't take long to get there.

Gods of Egypt is rated PG-13 for fantasy violence and action, and some sexuality and has a runtime of 127 minutes.

The sequel to the worldwide smash hit “Olympus Has Fallen,” a non-stop, suspenseful action thriller that delivers high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service agent (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one. Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States.

Movie Review: #EddieTheEagle A True Underdog Story

A true underdog story

RAMA is back with another review.

In the same spirit as “Rocky," “Rudy,” and a million other underdog sports movies out there, EDDIE THE EAGLE will have you believe the impossible. One of the most inspiring, crowd-pleasing films you’ll see this year.
span class="fullpost">
EDDIE THE EAGLE is about Michel Edwards (Taron Egerton) who only wanted one thing and that was to be an Olympian. He signed up for British ski-jumping on the only resource he had, believing in himself. His coach (Hugh Jackman) doubted him, the whole nation doubted him, but at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, Eddie showed them that he too could make history.

I didn’t really have recollection of the 1988 Olympics, because the first Olympics I remember watching was the one in 1992. But I had heard about the Jamaican bobsled team, this story of Eddie the Eagle however wasn’t on my radar. Took them long enough but I’m glad this movie finally gets made, because from time to time, our young generation, especially the ones who may struggle through insecurity, or the world telling them that they’ll never amount to anything more, needs stories like Eddie The Eagle.

It’s very much your textbook underdog sports movie, there are moments of giving up, moments of failures, moments of clarity, all the way to the big speeches about having heart is more important than winning, you know, the whole nine yards. The coach-trainee dynamic of Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton definitely reminds you of the relationship between Mickey and Rocky Balboa. Any dramatization by screenwriter Sean Macaulay and Simon Kelton and director Dexter Fletcher to make things feel more grand cinematic successfully adds to this already incredible true story. What a wonderful performance by rising star Taron Egerton, he’s actually a handsome fellow but he went all out to make himself look convincing as a nerd who may be in way over his head. EDDIE THE EAGLE is for those of us who feel like we’re stuck, thinking this is all there is to life. Purpose doesn’t just happen, we have to pursue it, we have to claim it, we have to give it a shot, in hopes that we’ll eventually fly... like an eagle.

#ZOOTOPIA Oscars TV Spot & Parody Posters

Here is the brand new Oscars spot & the latest parody posters for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ ZOOTOPIA.



See all the posters after the Jump...










The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.
