Netflix Original: Reboot; The Guardian Code (2018) **REVIEW**

So.. there’s this new show on Netflix. A little hidden gem if you will. It’s called ReBoot: The Guardian Code. Before get get into my review I’d like to add this show is aimed for teens!? I assume. And also, when I don’t do movie reviews I write websites and see code on daily basis soo…

Reboot got 5 main characters; Austin, Parker, Trey, Tamra & Vera. These kids go to Alan Turing High School a school based on IT. (If you don’t know who Alan Turing is, please click here. ) On first day back in school, Austin, Parker, Trey & Enigma get a text message saying they need to report to Room 0. Where they find a wall. But.. when going through the wall that is a hologram, they find a high tech room. Finding out they are something called ‘Cyber Guardian’. Protecting mankind from cyber attacks by entering the cyber.

Now it’s here where it gets REALLY ridiculous. We see them fighting malicious code or as they call it, dark code (made me go wait.. what!?). And seriously, don’t make me start about the guy who plays the hacker. That’s a mess, massive mess. Code that attacks various ‘stations’ of the internet and it’s up to the kids to fight it and make sure it’s safe again.

We get to see a story line with Austin and he lost his dad last term. He was a teacher same school he goes to now and how Austin is trying to cope with the lose. While being a ‘Guardian’ he find out about his dad’s extra work, if you will.

Reboot; The Guardian Code, is bit of a gem to watch but at the same time while watching it, it made me go ‘wait.. what!?’ on several occasions. So much inaccuracy and so much made up stuff. I mean.. if you are going to make a movie or Tv show like this you need some accuracy playing or it’ll turn into a mess. Which Reboot is. A mess. As much fun it is to watch it’s also quite painful to watch due to it’s bad acting, horrible casting and non-accuracy.

Reboot can be found on Netflix in their category; Netflix Originals.

Netflix Original: Step Sisters (2018) **REVIEW**

If you ever seen ‘Pitch Perfect’ or ‘Drumline’ and loved it then you would love ‘Step Sisters’. Same creators who wrote and directed ‘Pitch Perfect’ and ‘Drumline’ created ‘Step Sisters’ and this one surprised me in  good way. It’s funny, clever and the clap back the movie contains are absolutely perfect.

Jamilah, a well accomplished young college girl with a bright future. She works part-time in the Dean’s office. She’s the President of her sorority, captain of the sorority’s Stepping team. Her plans are to go to Harvard Law with her boyfriend. She got her entire life figured out until it’s about to get a little turned upside down.

Jamilah is friends with another girl from a different sorority house, Beth, a spunky girl with lots of humor. She agrees to go with Beth to her sorority party thinking it might be safe and gets ‘white girl drunk’, she’s having fun until a girl from said sorority is caught having sex in the bushes, it gets filmed and spread on the internet. So now, this sorority is on the verge of getting disbarged, UNLESS… Jamilah help them with a charity step contest so she can get her Harvard Law recommendation from the Dean who’s a alumni.

As she trains the girls she also noticing some set back with her boyfriend and with other girls from sorority she’s trying to help. They aren’t exactly taking it seriously. And then… all of the sudden.. picture’s from Jamilah’s drunken night gets leaked and here’s where all goes to shit. Jamilah loses her job, her boyfriend – well she left him, she loses her own sorority by them being judgemental about white girls doing Step. Jamilah decides to leave the college and continue her last class online. But then truth comes out of who leaked the photo’s and I have to say… no surprise but Jamilah’s reaction is the best.

‘Step Sisters’ are one of the funniest I’ve seen. We see girls coming together to save their house. With some minor setbacks. ‘Step Sisters’ is a film anyone can see really, well I’d say no children because alcohol and sexual references. If you would need a cheer me up, then this one is definitely recommended.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017) **REVIEW**

When we first met Thor he was basically a party boy who wouldn’t listen to his father’s advice. Everything was a game to him. Then he got into the Avengers. But we never understood Thor’s powers, til Ragnarok.

 

Thor is out in the universe looking for the infinity stones but when he comes back to Asgaard something isn’t exactly right.. but it doesn’t take him long to figure out what. Dear  old Loki – God of mischief. He had put Odin in New York and took his place. And this is where Thor meets Dr Strange who tells him where Odin is – Norway. But they need to hurry, Odin is sick. And here is where the biggest secret Odin kept from everyone. Odin has a daughter. We all thought Thor was the first-born but no. Hela is the first-born. Back when her and Odin ruled the 9 realms by fear and blood. Odin kept her imprisoned for her thirst for blood and war grew stronger. Soon as Odin had taken his goodbye to his boys he passed. And so the gateway to Hela’s prison opened up.

So now Thor & Loki gotta fight her but something goes wrong on the way back to Asgaard. Thor gets taken captive so fight in an arena, very similar to Gladiators. Where he meets… wait for it… HULK. So they gotta fight each other but here’s where things get interesting. Hulk doesn’t remember much so what happened really when Banner left? We get a taste test of Thor’s true powers because Hela DESTROYED the hammer.

Thor knows that only way for him to get Asgaard back from Hela and save the people is for team up with Hulk, Loki and a woman. A woman who captured him and sold him to the games. He heard by rumor that she is a Asgaardian, when he see’s her tattoo. Her knows EXACTLY who she is – Valkyrie

Thor is filled with great humor, wit and the thing that always works – awesome fighting scenes. I am most impressed by how we finally got to see Thor’s true powers and they work but I am sure we get to see more of it when Avangers come out with new film I think next year. Take your friends and go see Thor: Ragnarok today, it’s absolutely amazing.

Netflix Original: The Babysitter (2017) **REVIEW**

Babysitters… you love having one or you don’t. I never really had a babysitter growing up but I had family members looking after me when mom was working. But it never went as wrong as the babysitter in this Netflix Original.

Cole is a awkward 12 year old boy but his babysitter is the coolest. She seems to be his first crush on a girl. She’s very cute towards him and treats him like a brother. Cole’s parents are going away for the weekend so Bee is coming to look after him for the weekend. Have you ever stayed awake after dark to see what the babysitter does while you are sleeping? That is what Cole did but.. maybe he shouldn’t have done that.

Bee have friends over, they are playing ‘spin the bottle’, so what can go wrong here? Well.. Maybe when Bee stabs one of the boys in the head with 2 knives. Him being the sacrifice they need to make an offer to Lucifer to get what they want. How would you react as a 12 year old seeing all this? To only find out, they need your blood so make the ritual complete!? Do you fight or do you run and hide?

‘The Babysitter’ is a comedy horror film, I wouldn’t say it’s the best I’ve seen but it got its moments of fun and cringing moments.

Who are the actors in this film and where do we know them from?

  • Judah Lewis – Cole (Demolition)
  • Samara Weaving – Bee (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, Mayhem, Monster Trucks,Bad Girl)
  • Robbie Amell – Max (The Flash, ARQ, Anatomy of the Tide, The Duff)

  • Emily Alyn Lind – Melanie (Revenege, Enter the Void, J.Edgar, Replicas)
  • Andrew Bachelor- John (Fifty Shades of Black, Meet the Blacks, Grow House)
  • Leslie Blibb – Mom (Iron Man, Law Abiding Citizen, To the Bone)
  • Ken Marino – Dad (We’re the Millers, Wanderlust, Gattaca, Role Models)

Girls Trip (2017) **REVIEW**

When it comes to an all female cast of comedy I’m all for it. It all started with Bridesmaides and bunch of all female cast comedies have been since. And Girls Trip isn’t any different, the four ladies manage to nail the film.

We got four friends; Ryan, Sasha, Lisa & Dina. Been friends since college. But somewhere along the line they lost contact over the years. Ryan is the very successful one, she wrote a successful book and now she might up for a TV deal. Things seems to go well for her. She is going to appear at a festival in New Orleans and she invites her friends along to reunite. And it won’t be a dance on roses that’s for sure.

They meet up at the airport and already then you can tell some things might not be forgotten or forgiven but their weekend goes as planned. We got Sasha the journalist, Lisa the mom & Dina the party girl with a loud mouth. As the weekend goes along, trying to convince Lisa its time to let loose and not be a mom for a weekend isn’t easy, specially with the clothes she chosen to wear. But the girls to their thing and everyone seems to relax and have fun. Just one little detail, Ryan’s life isn’t at perfect as everyone seems to think it is. Her husband have been sleeping around with a Instagram model and Ryan’s friends won’t have that done to their friend. So… Dina attacks and they end up being kicked out of the hotel and need to stay somewhere less… appealing.

So the girls won’t let that ruin their weekend of fun, alot of stuff happens. Like getting high, Lisa finds a man for a weekend. Sasha struggles with her company and it about to go in flames. Ryan struggles to keep it together. Dina.. she just don’t care and goes along for the ride.

I didn’t have high hopes for the film when I saw the trailer but I decided to see it anyway and I was surprised. It’s funny with an good story. Gives you insight to the girl gang. Yes, I would recommend it to anyone who would like to see it. Jokes are  hilarious and well played out.

Who are the actors in this film and where do we know them from?

  • Regina Hall – Ryan Pierce (Scary Movie, Law Abiding Citizen, Black-ish, When the bough breaks)
  • Queen Latifah – Sasha Franklin (Bringing Down the House, Chicago, Star, Miracles from Heaven, Bessie)

Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) **REVIEW**

Back in 2014 when I saw first Kingsman I loved it. Kingsman is funny, got some cool stunts and it’s something that never been done before. Back in 2014 we met Eggsy, a London boy with a lot of troubles and not much discapline. But he got recruited to Kingsman, a spy organisation that straightened him out. He became someone he never thought he could become.

In second film, we met him again. Still witty but much smarter. He’s also in a relationship now. If you remember the ending of the first film you know who he rescued. Yeah, that’s his girlfriend now, believe it or not. But they are good together, just Eggsy job that comes in between. In The Golden Circle their relation and Eggy’s relation to his coworkers is being put to the test thanks to a woman who’s slightly crazy, she became rich by selling high class drugs and now want… world domination? What she want?

We get to meet Kingsman’s cousins called Statesmen. Based in Kentucky, USA. They make whiskey and Kingsman makes suits. But for this enemy they have to work together to find out where she is and what she actually wants. Poppy poisons her drugs and only way to get her antidote is to grant her immunity. When one of their own get poisoned by this drug they know the really have to work together. We also get to meet a unlikely movie guest – Elton John. Not kidding. Elton himself, plays himself in this film and he is so funny. Made me laugh every time.

So now Kingsman & Statemen have to work together, so how well will they work together really? Specially now that Eggsy and Merlin found out that Harry is still alive…. but something isn’t quite okay with him. He lost his memory, but as you know, he gets it back but is he still Harry though? And can they trust him? Can Eggsy and Merlin trust one of their own?

If you are a fan of Kings: The Secret Service then I would really recommend for you to go and see this one in the cinema. It’s witty, funny, cool stunts and it also got Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Jeff Bridges and Julienne Moore. They make a fun incredible cast.

Who are the actors in this film and where do we know them from?

  • Taron Egerton – Eggsy (Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Sing, Legend, Eddie The Eagle)
  • Edward Holcroft – Charlie (Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Vampire Academy)
  • Mark Strong – Merlin (Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Sherlock Holmes, The Imitation Game)
  • Hanna Alsström – Princess Tilde (Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Tillbaka Till Bromma, Sami Blood)
  • Thomas Turgoose – Liam (This is England franchise, Eden Lake, Somers Town)
  • Julianne Moore – Poppy (The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Seventh Son)
  • Colin Firth – Harry Hart ( The Kings Speech, Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Love Actually, Bridget Jones franchise)
  • Michael Gamon  – Arthur (Harry Potter, Sleepy Hollow, Gosford Park, Dad’s Army)
  • Björn Granth – The King of Sweden (The Girl with Dragon Tattoo franchise, The American, Pelle)
  • Lena Endre – The Queen of Sweden (The Girl with Dragon Tattoo franchise, Faithless, Wallander)
  • Channing Tatum – Tequila (Magic Mike, 21 & 22 Jump Sreet, White House Down, Logan lucky)
  • Halle Berry – Ginger (XMen, Cloud Atlas, New years Eve, Dark Tide)
  • Jeff Bridges – Champ (True Grit, Iron Man, TRON:Legacy, Hell or High Water)
  • Pedro Pascal – Whiskey (Game of Thrones, The Great Wall, Bloodsucking Bastards)

 

Who is the director and what is she/he known for?

Matthew Vaugh known for SEVERAL other films that done really well on the big screen. To mention a few: Kingmen: The Secret Service, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Stardust, Layer Cake. So there’s a huge chance you might have seen work already. Born in London, he went to U.S and become an assistant to a director. After a while he returned to London and studied Ancient History. But he dropped to return to U.S  to start his career as a director. But soon saw everyone else tried the same so he went back home once again and made films in England, some shorts and he got noticed.
