Posted on Author RachelComments Off on “12 Strong” Critics’ Reviews
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s latest film, 12 Strong hit theatres this weekend. Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig, the movie features a fantastic cast of Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Elsa Pataky and Michael Pena. Take a look below at what the critics have to say about the film:
Rolling Stone — Producer Jerry Bruckheimer thinks big, and his war movies can range from noisy idiocy (Pearl Harbor) to near brilliant (Black Hawk Down). Luckily, 12 Strong sees the value in substance as well as spectacle. The action scenes pulsate with the hum of modern warfare. Credit Hemsworth for playing Nelson not as some Norse God out of Marvel fantasy (that’s his day job) but as a man of courage forced to improvise on his feet or die trying. The rest of the cast also perform beyond the call of escapist duty.
Globe and Mail — 12 Strong suffers badly from a script stuffed with clichéd dialogue and some heavy-handed scenes on both the home front and in Afghanistan. Still, director Nicolai Fuglsig does succeed admirably in turning a contemporary battle fought with precision air strikes and satellite communications into a classic war movie with unambiguous good guys and a vile enemy. Put aside your hindsight and at least you’ll be rewarded with some invigorating action.
Variety — “12 Strong” is a war film that wants you to feel good about the invincibility of American power. The film is built like a grungy combat video game, with each village treated like a new level and the agony of battle taking a backseat to the pounding thrill of force. Visually, the terrain comes close to raising an existential question: What, exactly, are we fighting for in Afghanistan? The film slips in the pointed and now rather outdated argument that if the Taliban can be defeated, and Afghanistan eliminated as an Al Qaeda base, then there will be no more attacks like 9/11. Well, there haven’t been…but is that the reason why?

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Which “Avengers: Infinity War” Storyline is Anthony Russo Most Excited For?
Judging from the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, there is a metric-ton to be excited about. There is so much going on in the footage, that it’s hard to pick just one moment that stands out. Well, what about the creators of the film? What’s their favorite part of the movie? It turns out, director Anthony Russo has his pick. Speaking to Comicbook.com, the Avengers: Infinity War co-director reveals that he is on team Thor:
“I’m going to pick Thor because Thor, we’re picking up his story from the end of Thor: Ragnarok and at the end of that film as any fan would know his home planet of Asgard is destroyed, and so the character is in new territory so to speak, because his past has been torn away from him to a degree.”
Anthony also spoke about Thor’s evolution in the movie, stating that: “I think it’s very similar to Captain America’s situation when we picked up his story in Winter Solider when Joe and I came on to do our first movie for Marvel. Cap was in a place where we were very much catching him up in the modern world and seeing what that meant to him, and figuring out how you move a character that far forward and that far away from where they started back during the 40s, so I think in Thor we have similar opportunities with that character in this movie is that he’s going through a radical transformation and he’s moving forward in a way where he can never go back, and that’s always a fun place to be with a character as a storyteller.”
Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Luke Bracey Spills About Chris Hemsworth
Australian actor, Luke Bracey sat down for an interview with Marie Claire Australia and was asked about his friendship with Chris Hemsworth. Take a look below:
MC: You used to be flatmates with Chris Hemsworth. Is that right?
LB: Not flatmates but we had the same manager in the States. He lived at our manager’s house when he was starting out. And Liam [Hemsworth], his brother lived there too. I was the third person to live there. After I did Point Break he kind of shut the house and went, ‘good the house is done now; no more guests’ kind of thing. So we weren’t really flatmates but I guess we’re both part of a small little legacy that Chris started.
MC: Chris Hemsworth has done so well…
LB: All of us young blokes [in LA] trying to get into the business and get started are really proud of Chris. He’s a great bloke. He’s a hard worker, he’s super talented and I think we’re all very proud of him as an ambassador for Australia all around the world.
MC: And you’re hot on his heels…!
LB: Yeah, I’m trying. To be mentioned in the same sentence as him is pretty flattering. You know, he’s really going gangbusters. If I can follow his trail that he’s blazing, I’ll be pretty happy.
