Marvel’s newest film, Guardians Of The Galaxy is in theatres now, to
quite a bit of early praise. Seeming coming out of nowhere, this is an oddball property, helmed by an oddball team. In all fairnes, though, Marvel has been hitting them out of the park. So how does this one do? Is it another fine entry, or should it be left in the hands of the Collector?
Hercules, the Brett Ratner directed, Dwayne Johnson starring film is in theatres now, and that line alone should give you everything you need to know about the film. A flashy action film with as much dimension as The Rock’s loincloth on the surface, but it has some decent potential. So how does it do? Is it worthy of the legend, or should be exiled by the Gods?
This guy comes home from work one day and his wife isn’t there. At first, he thinks nothing of it. But then a day goes by, then two days, three days, four days go by, and he hears nothing from his wife. On the fifth day, he comes home from work and he finds his wife at the kitchen table, eating some leftovers. He says to his wife, “Where the hell have you been, I’ve been worried sick about you!” She says, “These three guys kidnapped me and made me their sex slave for two whole weeks!” The husband says, “But you’ve only been gone for five days?” The wife says, “Yeah, I know, I just wanted to grab something to eat real quick.”
Lucy was released July 25 (despite the international released date of July 30 on the poster above), an actiony, sci-fi type movie from our old chum Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element) and starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, among others. The trailers have promised an action flick a step up from your average Summer action flick, and given the cast and director, who’s to disagree? So is Lucy mind-blowingly awesome, or mind-numbingly stupid?
