Netflix Movie Of The Week #3

Published

on

Netflix

Alright, so I’m not doing a horror/comedy. I hope though that you gave either of my previous movies a chance. This week, I thought I would pick a movie that isn’t just for you. This movie will make you smile and it will make your girl smile as well. This week’s movie is called Safety Not Guaranteed. The film takes place in Washington state, and it stars Parks and Recreation’s Aubrey Plaza as Darius Britt, an intern at a magazine company. Darius’s character is completely lost and is looking for something in life.

With no new ideas for the magazine, one of the employees Jeff Schwensen (New Girl’s Jake Johnson) proposes that they further investigate one of the classifieds in the newspaper. The ad basically states that a man needs somebody to go back in time with him, and that safety is not guaranteed. Darius decides that this is something different in her life. Without going through the majority of the plot, Darius and company do eventually meet the man behind the ad, Kenneth Calloway (played by the hilarious Mark Duplass).

This trailer gives you a taste of what to expect:

This movie does keep you guessing. Can Calloway truly go back in time? Will Darius find her way? This film has a ton of heart and will keep you entertained. It is a true indie film, winning the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance in 2012. We watched this with a few friends and we all fell in love with this movie. Plaza is definitely a star in the making, she is just a likable character full of charm and wit. Director Colin Trevorrow truly made a gem of a film. Clearly Hollywood believes in Trevorrow, as he was given the job as director of Jurrassic Park 4.

So give this dramedy a chance, and I’m sure your girl will thank you for it. This movie is weird, quirky and bursting with chemistry between the leads. This is unlike any love story you have ever seen.

What should be my next movie? What did you think of Safety Not Guaranteed?

Watch The Terrifying Final ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Trailer

Published

on

Universal Pictures just released the final trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World, which is set to stampede into theaters on June 22nd, 2017.

It’s been 4 years since Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment, and Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. But when the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire must rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.

But that’s not all. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition discovers that a shadowy arms company has created a genetically-engineered dinosaur called the Indoraptor, described as “the most dangerous creature that ever walked the earth,” that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times!

Naturally, it’s up to Owen and Claire to save the world, because as Dr. Malcolm wisely reflects, “those creatures were here before us and if we’re not careful they’re going to be here after us.”

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for this!

Watch The Official Trailer For ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

Published

on

Disney has released the official trailer for their upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, giving us fans a peek at the next standalone installment of the Star Wars franchise. Like many of you, I was a little hesitant about a Han Solo origin story.

But after watching this trailer, I’m all in!

The trailer for Solo opens with young Han being recruited for a job. He tells Tobias Beckett that he’s a driver and that he’s waited a long time for a shot like this. Becket warns him that once he joins, he’s part of this life forever. And so it begins.

Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo befriends his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars sagas most unlikely heroes.

We wish we could just make the jump to May 25th already when Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters, but this trailer will have to tide us over until then.
