This weekend we have the film Charlie’s Angels coming out and right now we might not have any numbers to see how the film will do but we should go back to the year 2003 for this film and that film is none other then Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle which is a sequel to the 2000 film Charlie’s Angles. In this film like many other sequels we have a bigger budget which increased from 93 million to 120 million. The movie was in theaters from June 18th to September 26th and grossed a total of 259 million which was 5 million less then the first. the film brought back most of the cast which included Lucy Liu, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Luke Wilson and sadly Joey, I mean Matt LeBlanc. The one who didn’t return was Bill Murray. New cast members included Demi Moore, Shia LaBeouf and the late Bernie Mac who play Bill Murray’s half brother, which makes me laugh but anyway.
So in this film the Angels but solve a case the revolves around a former Angel gone bad, that Angel is Madison lee played by Moore. The Angels must stop her before she sells federal witness protection people to mobs around the country which would make her very rich, she even had a high ranking F.B.I official on her which she kills once she gets what she wants but before she can sell the names the Angels figure it and try to stop her with several battles between them until the end when they finally beat her. Pretty basic plot, nothing really outside of that. Now for the rest of the film, first the acting, nothing blew me away and sometimes it seemed like they were really forcing themselves to be their actors except Barrymore because we all know in her younger days she was a bad ass. The comedy was a miss big time and I know this was a action comedy but when you had Matt LeBlanc, Luke Wilson and Bernie Mac. I would expect a few laughs but I don’t think I even cracked a smile for this film. Now onto the action, the movie does live up the title of being Full Throttle because the action was there just way over the top and if they aiming to be over the top then mission accomplished but it was just not for me.
In the end I am giving this movie a C or just around 70 percent because they did miss on some thing but had a hit with other aspect of the film. Now recently when I saw trailers for the new film I was happy to see it be a reboot even happier after watching this film but then found out that this will be a part 3 but with new angels to me that worries me because in todays market if they copy what Full Throttle did then it will for sure be an flop and big budget movies been having a rough go around but we shall see!

Welcome back where we look at some stories you might have missed so without wasting time let’s get right to it. Kevin Hart has been covered a lot because of his accident that with how it is described he was very lucky to be a live, and his career was thought to be over and no longer the same as it once was, Though the accident was still bad which required him to have back surgery. Now Kevin wasted no time and got right back to work, when he went out on the promotional tour for his upcoming film Jumanji The Next level, which comes out later this year in December. I love Kevin Hart and to see him coming back this fast is nothing shy of awesome.
This next story really only popped up on the radar because his movie is a big hit and is number 1 and is predicting to remain at number 1. Joaquin Phoenix was recently in a accident involving a paramedics truck. Basically there really isn’t much here, witnesses and everyone including Phoenix himself said he basically missed judge the amount of room he had when he was pulling out and the truck just had a scratch on with his vehicle took the most damage, everyone was okay of course and they exchanged information and Phoenix isn’t facing any charges. Pretty much end of story.
Today The Charlie Angels reboot released another trailer. When the first trailer came out I have to admit I really wasn’t into this movie but now the second one is out and well basically I am slightly closer to saying I might go and see but I am still not sold on the film. I like the cast minus Kristen Stewart, but who knows she could shine in this film. The Movie is about a month away still, if they want to shine they really have to give us a little more before it is all said and done.
Terminator: Dark Fate runtime has now been revealed and it will be over two hours long at 2 hours and 14 minutes. We don’t know what story they are going to tell in this film, we do know the old crew is back in this film to give us a a good third film that we never got, though besides the last film, I thought the movies were good but never on the same level as part 2. I do hope this is the perfect amount of time to tell this story and I also hope all the hype is worth it on this film.
We are in the month of October and the Halloween franchise is back in full swing and we know we are just a year out when Halloween Kills comes out and more and more details are coming out and the next big detail we got is that Charles Cypher is returning to the franchise. If you don’t know him, I’ll help you out, he played Sheriff Leah Brackett in Halloween and Halloween part 2 but his character hasn’t been seen since then. We don’t know the details of how big his role is in this film but we will find out!
