We all know the classic tale of Peter Pan. The boy who didn’t want to grow up and fought the pirates and other enemies of the island Neverland. We seen the films and the tv-show (yes, there was a tv show when I was growing up, have them all on VHS) and here is a different tale of who Peter Pan is.
Peter is an orphan boy in London during World War 2. With his best friend he gets up to mischief. One day the other orphan boys are starting to disappear and Peter it set into finding out why. He will soon realise he shouldn’t have. He end up being on a ship who takes him to Neverland to mine for pixie dust. Because the vicious pirate Blackbeard is dead set on living forever.
Peter soon discover he isn’t ordinary and unwanted like he was always was told by the nuns at the orphanage. He is the son of a human mother and a faery prince. So his destiny is to save the island from Blackbeard. He becomes a friend with someone we all know well James Hook. So this story takes place before the story we all know and love. So will with all the pressure of Peter being the chosen one will he step up and show who he is or will he simply fail?
Pan is a different film from what I’m used to when it comes to the story of Peter Pan. I like how Hugh Jackman plays the bad guy in the film. He always plays the good one and he have said in an interview about playing the bad guy in a previous film, he called it liberating. And it clearly shows he can play a bad guy just as well as a good one and hope we all see him do more bad guy roles. There where scenes in the film where they had some cool and epic moments and some where a bit predictable. But that’s how we all know how the film will end.
Will I recommend this film? Yes I will. It’s funny and romantic in it’s own way and I wouldn’t say it’s good for young kids under the age of 7 but it’s a family film (for the older children).
You see Hugh Jackman, Levi Miller, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Adeel Akhtar, Amanda Seyfried and many more.
For some reason it took me a while to see this film so when I saw it on Netflix (yeah I know) I thought I’d watch it. And here we go.
Jean Valjean is the one of the main people in the film. For 19 years he’s been slaving for stealing bread for his sisters son so he wouldn’t starve to death. When he’s out and done with it his sentence he wants to start over and with starting over he have to run from the soldiers who will hunt him down. He changes his name and make the mayor of a town. One day he steps into the factory where Fantine works and rest of the girls rallies against her and finds herself thrown out and out of the street. Jean had asked the foreman to take care of the fight so he kicked her out. After a few weeks Jean finds Fantine out on the street where she is very ill and been selling herself so she can send money to an inkeep who takes care of her daughter. Do little does she know the inkeep isn’t very nice to little Cosette. One day Fantine pass away at the hospital and Jean promised to take care of Cosette and make sure she’s safe. And he keeps that promise.
The film itself is actually quite good – better than I thought. Since I usually don’t like musicals. But all the actors have done a fantastic job, even the children. So yeah, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see it.
You see actors like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Eddie Redmayne and many more.
Seth MacFarlane is starring in the movie he wrote and produced – A Million Ways To Die In The West. All I could see was Brian from Family Guy. You could say this movie is sort of parody of the western. You’ll see absurd weird shit in it.
Albert is a sheep farmer, not a very good one, his girlfriend just left him and there is this new mysterious woman, Anna, arriving to town Albert is showing interest – not knowing who her troubling husband is until he arrives. Anna teaches Albert how to shoot a gun so he can win a gun fight that he’s been challenged by his ex girlfriends new boyfriend who always mocks Albert. When that’s done he have to fight Anna’s husband after he found out Albert kissed Anna.
You will see a lot of ways to die in the west specially in this town where people die in weird ways and no cares. I’m not sure if I was laughing or just laughed to not cry. The film is a comedy but it’s horrible.. So if you’re looking for a comedy that’s so bad you’re not sure if you wanna laugh or cry or just kill 2h, then A Million Ways To Die In The west is the one for you.
You see actors like Seth MacFarlane, Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Giovanni Ribisi, Neil Patrick Harris, Sarah Silverman and many more.
