Snatched (2017) **REVIEW**

On occasion we all like a good funny comedy. Some comedies haven’t really been funny as of lately and that is just the case of ‘Snatched’. Starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn, mother/daughter duo.

Emily is someone who does not have anything figured out, she works at a fashion store and gets fired, her boyfriend leaves her just before their trip to Ecuador. Emily travels to her mothers house because she wanted to see her daughter, by the end of the evening. Emily manages to convince her mother to go with her after finding a album of pictures of her mother traveling and going to concerts.

So the girls leave and you can straight off tell that Linda (the mother) is being annoying. She’s being ridicolous towards Emily, you know being overprotective and telling her leaving the hotel to see the culture is the worst thing. So obviously, after Emily finds a man that shows her around he invites her and her mother out to explore some more. And as you might be able to figure it out, it goes sideways from here. Emily and Linda gets kidnapped but they manage to flee, only to be chased by the boss.

Is the film any funny? No. It’s just straight up annoying. Almost like they tried too hard with it. Script was weird and so much over the top. But that is what Amy Schumer is. I find it hard to find her funny in acting comedy films, more into seeing her doing standup stuff. Would I recommend the film? Sorry, no. Don’t waste your time.

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

  • Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer, Trainwreck)
  • Randall Park (The Interview, Trainwreck, Fresh off the Boat)
  • Goldie Hawn (Private Benjamin, Overboard, Death Becomes Her)
  • Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad, Neighbors, The Mindy Project)
  • Wanda Sykes (Monster-in-Law, Evan Almighty, Over the Hedge)
  • Joan Cusack (Working Girl, Toy Story 2, Say Anything)

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

Jonathan Levine mostly known by writing scripts, couldn’t find much information on who he is. But go and check him over at IMDb

Suicide Squad (2016) **REVIEW**

Suicide Squad the most anticipated movie this year from DC. So many expectations. But disappointment is in the air. At least for me. Suicide Squad was explosive with funny punchlines and AMAZING effects. But that exactly what Suicide Squad is.

The government is in a need of help from supervillians in a maximum security prison that doesn’t exist. They are trying to control an ancient witch by having her heart, this witch is possessing the body of an archeologist. So they recruit Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Boomerang, Diablo, Katana, Slipknot and Killer Croc to their team. Inserting a bomb in their head if they decide to go their own way during the mission. But when the group of outlaws find out who they are hunting, a choice has to be made. Go with the government to stop it or walk away as their handler, Rock Flag, is setting them free.

We see the love of The Joker and Harley time to time and how they met. Who doesn’t want a love like theirs? I’m not saying psychotic but I’m saying they love each other and people try to keep them apart but they are still fighting to stay together.

We see some funny punchlines from Harley Quinn, she steals the film. The villian in this film is played by Cara Delavingne. They could have casted someone else as the witch, I didn’t like her as the witch. I can say Jared Leto killed it as Joker, he freaked me out a little. The character is quite dark and he is doing an amazing job with it and I do hope seeing Jared Leto as Joker more time. I truly enjoyed his version, same with Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Actors: Will Smith, Ike BarinHoltz, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Robin Atkin Downes, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Ezra Miller, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje, Cara Delavingne, Joel Kinnaman and many more.
