Halsey – Ghost

This song is from 2015, but I wasn’t even aware of Halsey until this year… so… yeah? When I saw the thumbnail image, heard some… I’m assuming Japanese, and saw some of the visuals… I started thinking “Oh!! Is this somehow related to the horror movie Scream… but in Japan?” I was then just… so sad.

I feel like people wont understand. She looks like Drew Barrymore with blue hair. The bad guy is known as Ghostface… I’ve seen merch in Japanese with him recently.

Dude. I feel like I shouldn’t have to explain myself here.

Cee-Lo Green & Eva Mendes – Pimps Don’t Cry

I was watching The Other Guys with my roommate, and Eva Mendes sings a song to Will Ferrel. I went “Huh. That’s crazy… I wish that was a real song!” At the end, I was shocked to hear the line again in a complete song… and even more shocked to find out that there was a music video made for it for Funny or Die!

Now if we can only get a much longer version of that Irish shanty Will sings in the bar!

Vudu’s top pic of the 1990’s?

90stop10Vudu currently has a list of (some) of the best movies during the 1990’s. Pfft… as if. Independence Day, Fight Club, Mrs. Doubtfire, Speed, My Cousin Vinny, The Last of The Mohicans, There’s Something About Mary, The X-files, Entrapment, and The Thin Red Line. Okay…  Fight Club was cool. Entrapment? Well… Catherine Zeta-Jones… she…

Okay, so the list is not the worst, but let’s see if I can do better.

  • LastActionHeroSo I Married an Axe Murderer
  • Groundhog day
  • Waynes World
  • Jurassic Park
  • Terminator 2: Judgement Day
  • Last Action Hero
  • The Big Lebowski
  • Forrest Gump
  • Office Space
  • Galaxy Quest

*sigh* I’ve made it to 10, and I haven’t mentioned Clerks, Being John Malkovich, The Sandlot, or Robin Hood Men in Tights… which means that I kind of hate myself right now?

*sigh* The 1990’s were a magical time in my life. Expect some more top 10’s that I immediately regret in the near future.

Are there any big (or small) titles that I may have missed? Please let me know!

Jojo Rabbit?

What the fuh… Taika Waititi… What did you do? Disney is releasing a movie with Hitler in it? Huh?! Fox Searchlight’s Twitter description for this movie reads as follows:

JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.

So yeah… this looks maybe awesome? I shouldn’t have watched this a week after Inglorious Bastards as well as the episode I watched today of Glow where they mention genocide… but yay! Fun imaginary Hitler friend!

*sigh* Here is hoping that this movie goes over well? I think it could be amazing?

Men In Black: International

p16357164_p_v12_aaI saw Men in Black: International, and… it was fun? Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? Men in Black is a Sony made movie using a property owned by Marvel comics thanks to their 1990’s acquisition of Malibu comics… kind of.

The first two movies were pretty straight forward. Great movie, lesser okay sequel, and then the third movie involved time travel so that was the best of all three original Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith movie.

Men in Black: International is a return to form for the franchise. Sony took two big Marvel comics stars, Thor Hemsworth and Valkyrie Thompson and threw in the amazing Liam Neeson to boot!

mibTessa Thompson sounds different here than she did in Thor Ragnarok, so that made judging her acting a bit odd because that was a little jarring and made her sound a little weaker/quieter than she should have? Hemsworth was fine for the most part. Bottom line, the two main leads come off quite charming, but they seem to be missing a lot of the comedic aspects of Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Thankfully a sidekick alien character is thrown in, which is voiced by Kumail Nanjiani who had some of the best moments in the movie.

Before watching the movie, my group made some predictions, and some of them came true, and here some of the less spoilery ones. They do not romantically pair either main character together, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are never prominently mentioned/featured, and they never play ‘Here comes The Men in Black.’ from the first movie. Also, there is no after credits… at least as of the early showing that I caught on Tuesday evening.

Pawny Kumail Nanjiani MIBI can easily see The Men In Black continuing on after this one, as it’s pretty good… definitely better than the last 3rd party Marvel movie that came out this month that stars a woman while having feminist undertones. Men In Black: International is certainly above average and I can definitely understand this being someones favorite of the franchise!
