GHOST IN THE SHELL
PLOT: In the future a young woman has a human brain but a cyborg body.
Major Mia Killian (Scarlett Johansson) is the first of her kind; her body robotic but has a human mind. She is trained to be a weapon but also wants to know her past. The live-action movie is based on the anime series of the same name. Johansson actually looks like Major but many fans of the series wished they considered an Asian for the part. There are many Asians actress but Hollywood prefers to go with a box-office star rather to have the ethnicity correct. She was good as the rest of the cast and it is very sober.
PLOT: A young kid and his baby brother in a suit must take out an evil guy to stop parents from loving their babies.
An adorable baby in a black business suit pretends he is Tim’s baby brother while investigates his parents who works at Puppyco, a toy company to make the ultimate toy puppy that will make all parents all over the world to love the puppy more than their own babies. It sounds incredible but is very good and imaginative. Alec Baldwin is simply great as the “baby” who is all business and nothing else. It is delightful storytelling and very recommended.
THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS 8
PLOT: Dom Tretto goes rouge!
Dom (Vin Diesel) is on his honeymoon with Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) when a mysterious woman named Cipher (Charlize Theron) forces Dom to work for her. Here’s a big hint: It is about family he doesn’t know about. It is a fun popcorn movie in April. It is incredible how the beginning of the franchise they were just race car drivers to minority Mission Impossible! If you like the movie series up till now go see it; if not don’t.
