Yes, We’re Getting an Animated ‘Super Mario’ Next Year and Here’s the Cast

Movie studios have now struck another angle to get seats in butts and that is the sudden willingness to adapt beloved games into films. And after the success and impending sequel for Sonic the Hedgehog’s movies it was only a matter of time before we’d get a Mario film. The cast, however, was just announced last night and boy is it a star-studded ensemble. Check it out.

Chris Pratt is Mario

Yes, you’re hearing correctly. The man who brought Emmet from The Lego Movie to life is now lending his voice to Mario which is a bit confusing but could turn out to be kind of brilliant.

Anya Taylor-Joy is Peach

This makes sense. In fact, she could play a live-action Peach. That’s how perfect this casting is.

A Movie Ranking: Chris Pratt

I had never heard anything about Chris Pratt until The Lego Movie. Suddenly, I was introduced to this hilarious actor who was not only a great voice actor but would turn out to play one of my surprise favorite superheroes too. So, for this week’s A Movie Ranking, I thought it would be fun to highlight him. Enjoy!

9. Onward

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Ratzenberger, Tracey Ullman, Mychael Danna, Jeff Danna, Wilmer Valderrama, Catherine Apple, Sharon Calahan, Grey Griffin, Chris Pratt, Kori Rae, Mel Rodriguez, Dan Scanlon, Octavia Spencer, Keith Bunin, Kyle Bornheimer, Noah Klocek, Lena Waithe, Adam Habib, Jason Headley, Tom Holland, Ali Wong, and George Psarras in Onward (2020)

I do NOT like this movie. I repeat. I do NOT like this movie. It was SOO annoying, so predictable, and by the film’s conclusion, I was just peeved.

Plus, despite clearly loving Pratt and Tom Holland for their roles in the MCU, I found them to be ultra annoying in this movie as elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Chris Pratt

‘Onward’ Is a Boring Disney/Pixar Movie

When I saw the first teaser for this movie I wasn’t that intrigued. Turns out, after watching the film on Disney+ yesterday, my intuition was correct.

Onward is hands down the worst Disney/Pixar movie I’ve seen. No doubt about it. The story, while set in an imaginative world that depicts magical creatures like elves and pixies in modern society, is as bland and predictable as they come.

Following the tale of two brothers and their “quest” to restore the second half of their materialized father (quick rundown; their father is dead and on the youngest brother’s birthday they are given a staff and a spell to bring their father back to life for one day) the plot is designed to inspire people to love one another and to try and hopefully influence a few tears.

The message was sweet but the movie was real droll. I’m talking about an almost-going-to-sleep-because-the-movie-is-so-boring type of droll.

I wish I could say Onward exceeded my wildest expectations. It did not.

I’m giving this 3 out of 5 stars and a solid 85 out of 100.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

Who’s Your Favorite Chris?

As you may know, there are four prominent Chris’s in Hollywood, all of which have starred in superhero movies; Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris Pine. These four Chris’s have been in our eyeballs in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time for years and yet everyone has their favorite Chris. That’s why I thought it would be the perfect topic for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Chris Hemsworth

Before Thor in 2011 Chris Hemsworth wasn’t a household name. The Australian actor, however, would immediately rise to Hollywood fame as he took a superhero popular among Marvel fans and brought him to the big screen in a faithful adaptation of the character. Plus, plenty of people were captivated by the actor’s impressive physique, which has been on full display in his various shirt off scenes throughout nearly every movie that he has ever been in.

Now, eight years later, he’s still providing people plenty of joy with his role as Thor in the Marvel movies and his recent role in Men in Black: International. Continue reading Who’s Your Favorite Chris?

Disney Releases Three New Trailers for Three Exciting New Films Next Year

Disney is taking over. Yes, I mean it, literally. They are taking over the cinema, tv channels, everything seems to be under Disney these days. Disney consumes much of our expectations when it comes to films we want to see in the movie theaters everywhere, from the animated children’s films to the neverending Marvel movies, Disney is dominating our yearly entertainment.

In the past week, Disney has revealed three new trailers ahead of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil for three of the company’s films arriving next year: Dolittle starring our very own Robert Downey Jr., Onward starring Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, and Jungle Cruise starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. Here are the trailers.

Dolittle

This was a complete surprise that popped up on Sunday as Disney unveiled a new live-action film to obsess over; Dolittle. Robert Downey Jr. sheds away his Iron Man suit to become a new hero and it’s very clear from the trailer, it’s going to be pretty darn good if I say so myself.

This is a must-watch for families this January.

Arrives January 17, 2020. Continue reading Disney Releases Three New Trailers for Three Exciting New Films Next Year

Chris Pine

There’s a lot of entertainment to know Chris Pine by. Whether you’re familiar with him as Captain Kirk in the Star Trek films or Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman, his role in the destined-to-be-nominated-for-an-Emmy series on TNT, I Am the Night, his impressive musical abilities in Disney’s Into the Woods, his role in the Oscar-nominated film, Hell or High Water, and his small but totally awesome role as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Yeah, Chris Pine has done a lot.

Chris Pratt

You may not know this but there was a time when Chris Pratt wasn’t considered a Hollywood hunk. Far from it, in fact, for he was a rather big fellow. Big, horizontally. But, after losing some weight and getting into top superhero shape a new man emerged, causing plenty of surprise for moviegoers around the world as he strolled into our hearts as the lovable yet obnoxious Peter Quill/Star-Lord.

And it didn’t stop there.

The very next year he starred in the Jurassic Park reboot, Jurassic World, as Owen Grady, a keeper of dinosaurs and ultimate motorcycle-riding bad mamma-jamma. Starring in other films such as the beloved The Lego Movie, the steamy sci-fi thriller, Passengers, and the classic cowboy action film, The Magnificent Seven, Chris Pratt has made his mark on Hollywood.

And with his role as Star-Lord continuing on and his upcoming role in the cute new Disney movie, Onward, we’ll have Chris Pratt to enjoy for many more years to come.

Chris Evans

If you’re not aware, Chris Evans was a superhero long before he became Captain America. He starred as the fiery superhero, Johnny Storm, in 2005’s Fantastic Four and 2007’s Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Four years later he would take his superhero resumé to the next level as he starred in the movie that would change his life forever; Captain America: The First Avenger.

For eight years Chris Evans has inspired us and brought millions of fans so much joy as the patriotic superhero, Captain America. But he’s also managed to impress as a doting uncle in the critically-acclaimed film, Gifted. While his role as Captain America has unfortunately come to an end there’s no doubt that he will always be in our hearts.

So, of these four Chris’s, who’s your favorite? For me, my favorite is definitely Chris Evans. Not only is he a hero onscreen but he’s just as much a hero offscreen as he constantly stands up for what’s right. I love that. 😊

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
