Movie Review by Kristin: THOR: RAGNAROK | #ThorRagnarok #thor @thorofficial

IMG_0855

Helloooooooo, movie lovers!!

I got to see a 3-D screening of THOR: RAGNAROK last night here in Miami, and I have to say . . . this might just take the top spot for me! It’s definitely the most entertaining of the Thor movies.

Now, I might be a bit biased because I love me some Chris Hemsworth, but this movie had the perfect balance of action and comedy that I felt set it apart from the others. I don’t remember the other films being consistently funny throughout the entire two hours, but this one had everyone laughing (in a good way) for a lot of it. The interactions between Thor and Hulk were some of the best moments for me. I also loved the female presence in this one. Cate Blanchett as Hela aka the Goddess of Death, and Tessa Thompson were such bad asses in this movie and it’s nice to see women being represented as such in a genre geared towards boys and men. Women enjoy these characters and films too, so it’s nice to see them being included and represented as strong, powerful beings that can kick ass with the best of them!

The cast was fantastic, and there were even a few surprise appearances thrown in that made it even better. I’m about to throw in a spoiler alert regarding those appearances, so if you don’t want to know, skip through to the synopsis.

SPOILER ALERT: Doctor Strange played a small part in the film, Matt Damon goes uncredited but plays an actor imitating Loki.

 

SYNOPSIS: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

This is definitely my favorite Thor movie. If you’re contemplating whether or not to see it in 3-D, I say do it! I wear glasses all of the time, so it’s a bit of a hassle having to put those 3-D glasses on top of my own and it distorts the picture just a bit BUT the effects were great and it was still a cool experience. Whether it’s 3-D or not, I strongly suggest seeing this one in the theater. Check it out for yourself and let me know your thoughts on this comedic direction!

Dan Owen has released the video for his brand new single ‘Hideaway’, out now through Atlantic Records.

The video sees Dan playing one half of an escaping couple, running from attackers through a menacing English countryside setting as they are caught up in an intense car chase and terrorised by snarling attack dogs.

‘Hideaway’ enlists huge blues riffs which bolster the mighty soulful tones of Dan’s jaw-dropping vocal abilities. The song is achieving widespread exposure with plays at Radio 2 from Dermot O’Leary, Zoe Ball and Joe Whiely, while it has also been featured as Virgin Radio’s recent ‘Record Of The Week’ and soundtracks the Boots No.7 televised and online advert.

Dan has gained critical acclaim across the world following his debut release on Atlantic Records with ‘Moonlight’ earlier this year. He has become a big live draw across the UK and Europe and has just completed a 16-date sold out headline tour, including a headline show at London’s OMEARA last night. He’s also played a number of high profile festivals this summer including Latitude and Barn On The Farm among many others.

With the release of ‘Hideaway’ we find the Shrewsbury singer at his most bold and determined yet, delivering an impressive statement as one of the most exciting new voices in the UK today. His debut album will be released next year.

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF “HOME” BY NICK JONAS FROM FERDINAND SOUNDTRACK

FERD_Hillside_PosterA_7.0

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILM ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF

“HOME” BY ACTOR, MULTI-PLATINUM AND GRAMMY NOMINATED SINGER NICK JONAS FROM FERDINAND SOUNDTRACK

Original song from the forthcoming animated feature released today

 

Twentieth Century Fox today announced the release of “Home” an original song by Nick Jonas from the forthcoming animated feature FERDINAND.

“I’ve always wanted to write an original song for a film,” says Jonas. “When they showed me the materials of the movie, FERDINAND, a story I was familiar with, I was thrilled.”

FERDINAND tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure. Set in Spain, Ferdinand proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover.

Jonas says “Home” encompasses the film’s theme of acceptance. “I wrote this song with good friends of mine Justin Tranter and Nick Monson,” says Jonas. “And we wrote about feeling accepted and feeling loved, wherever that place is for you. For me it’s home, it’s my family, people I have closest to me; and the experiences we’ve shared.”

FERDINAND is directed by Carlos Saldanha, the director of “Rio” and inspired by the beloved book “The Story of Ferdinand” by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson. The heartwarming animated comedy adventure features an all-star cast that includes John Cena, Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Anthony Anderson and many more. It will be released by Twentieth Century Fox on December 15, 2017. The film’s soundtrack will be release by Island Records on December 1, 2017.

These heroes don’t wear capes, but they protect cities and it’s occupants from the natural disasters.

Based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, “Only The Brave” is the heroic story of one unit of local firefighters that through hope, determination, sacrifice and the drive to protect families, communities and our country become one of the most elite firefighting teams in the nation.

Actor Miles Teller was takes with the role of playing Brendan McDonough who was in attendance at the press conference and both Teller and McDonough talked about the honor it was to be a part of such a project.

Teller was said he was humbled by the experience because he learned something new from training and getting to know McDonough.

The complex role Teller was tasked with took center stage as the entire hotshot squad was important, but the story at points seem to center around his character.

McDonough said it was an honor to get this made and pay tribute to the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

Actor Jeff Bridges is known to take roles which have importance to him. He said that the story needed to be told, he felt that at a time when the world seems divided. For those who want to learn more about how to help Hotshots visit the movie’s website OnlyTheBrave-Movie.com.

The entire cast was proud of the movie and the hard work each member of the project put into it.

The true story depicted real people, with real lives and went on to tell a story of sacrifice for the better of the community.

TIM MCGRAW & FAITH HILL: Soul2Soul World Tour 2017 (Review)

IMG_0712

Hey there music lovers!! I’m back with another live show review! Yesterday afternoon, my niece’s mom sent me a text asking if I was a fan of country music. Now, admittedly, I love all kinds of music, but country isn’t my top choice. However, I love me some Faith Hill and Tim McGraw! When I heard she had tickets to their show last night in Sunrise, FL, I had to say YESSSSSSSS!

I invited my cowboy-boot-wearing, country-music-loving friend and we drove out in the rain to catch the show. This might’ve been the first time in my life that I went to a show where I didn’t know every song being played, but it didn’t even matter!

The show opened up with Locash, who I, personally, had never heard of before, but they sounded great. They did a fantastic job at hyping up the crowd before Faith & Tim came out, which is always a solid accomplishment for an opening act. I’m always open to new music, so I’ll definitely be checking them out now after seeing them perform live.

One thing I want to note about the show was that the visual effects and staging were SO good. I even want to say the whole set up was one of the best I’ve ever seen–and I’ve been to A LOT of live shows! There were hi-def lasers, floating lights, moving see-through banners and hi-def visuals on the huge screen on stage. I don’t think there could have been one bad seat in the house because most of the performances were put up on the screen like this:

IMG_0677

The vocals throughout the entire show were well worth the soggy shoes I was wearing for almost four hours (did I mention it was raining?). The two swapped off between singing duets and doing their own solo music, and everything really flowed nicely. The one thing I admire about these two is how they’ve been married for 21 years, they have three beautiful daughters, yet they still look (and act) like they’re dating. The fact that they did this joint tour together is a testament to that and it was adorable! They had so much energy throughout the entire show as well, which kept the energy in the crowd on fire the whole time!

THE FOREIGNER Introduces The U.S. To Jackie Chan’s Serious Acting Talent

Written by Jesus Figueroa

For years Jackie Chan has been entertaining U.S. audiences with comical action movies, but “The Foreigner” show cases a more serious side to the action star.

Chan has been doing serious action movies overseas, but had never had the opportunity to bring his acting talents to more than comedy action movies in the U.S.

“The Foreigner” is a dark gritty story of a man seeking out vengeance when his daughter is killed in a terrorist attack.

“In Asia, I already found it very tough to slowly change, but for the past 20 years my friends in Asia have accepted that ‘Wow, Jackie (Chan) is an actor, not just an action star,'” Chan said. “From Hollywood, I get scripts for police from Hong Kong or police from China, secret police from hong kong, secret police from china, I don’t get so many roles from Hollywood.”

No different roles were offered to Chan until “The Foreigner,” his fans outside of Asia had not been able to see anything other than the action star.

Through this dark story, the dramatic side of Chan is showcased in a story which has him show an emotional and vulnerable side.

Screenplay writer David Marconi said it wasn’t intentional that Quan Ngoc Minh, played by Chan, comes off as almost a villain in the first part of the movie because it wasn’t what was in the original book “The Chinaman” written by Stephen Leather.

“Originally for me, it was a man who…Is caught up in a tragedy,” Marconi said. “We have so many tragedies around us, look at Las Vegas, you can just go on and on and on.”

“The Foreigner” tells the story of a grieving father who has nothing to live for, Marconi said. This gives Quan no other option than to go after the people who took everything away from him.

Although he character goes to extremes, Chan hopes that people remember that this is fiction that is based on some sort of reality, but not completely grounded in reality.

As a filmmaker, Chan hopes his films send some message to the viewers – peace, respect, unity among other themes – and causes thoughts and discussions.

“Right now, there are terrorist attacks every single day around the world,” Chan said. “I always said that natural disasters – tornados and tsunamis – happen every single day. Why do humans create human disasters? I choose this movie because I hope we can stop these kinds of things.”

Chan hopes that the loss of innocent lives can stop, that through “The Foreigner” can help start the discussion to find a solution to the senseless loss of innocent lives.

Actor Dave Belvederi Finds His Road

Actor Dave Belvederi Finds His Road

Written by Jesus Figueroa (@Thisfunktional)

Professionally trained actor Dave Belvederi has not strayed away from traveling to be an actor.

Born in Italy, acting has taken him from Europe and found him a place in Los Angeles with numerous skills to bring to his trade.

“I’ve always travelled since I was a little kid, so I was never scared of traveling,” Belvederi said. “Traveling on your own is way better. It gives you more freedom. You get to see alot of different cultures, different ethnicities, so, it kind of widens your mind.”

Along with his travels, the skills he picked up while training as an actor have brought him a better understanding and more to bring to each of the his roles.

While in New York in his first year of college he picked up stonework as an interest due to his background in mixed martial arts.

Starting with boxing and progressing to kickboxing and eventually more close-quarter combat.

“I started training with Ray Rodriguez, he was a stunt coordinator back then,” Belvederi said.

Rodriguez would encourage him to consider stunt work because of the many years of martial arts.

Due to stunt acting, Belvederi was able to keep up his physique so he could be versatile and pursue action roles which would require his training.

“The cinema here (in Hollywood) is more spectacular. There’s more of an action style, bigger,” Belvederi said. “Acting in Europe is very traditional.”

Coming from Europe, Belvederi never thought he would be able to do both stunt work and acting. Being in Hollywood now he has been able to take advantage and use the traditional training with his stunt training.

With two projects coming up Belvederi looks to showcase more of what he is capable of and expand his acting range even further.

“Bloody Eyes” has Belverderi playing a detective, which he wasn’t use to because he was usually placed in the role of a villain.

As well as “Rogue Hunter,” now in post-production, where Belvederi play mercenary Alex Phoenix.

“It was a very demanding role because it had alot of stunts too,” Belvederi said.

Belvederi rehearsed the action sequences two weeks prior to starting shooting. Which gave him the versatility to adapt to changes once shooting took place.

Roles come to Belvederi and he said he is willing to take on a variety of roles because as long as it is challenging it will keep him honing his skills.
