Blake reviews The Glass Castle and The Hitman’s Bodyguard.
On this episode of Grab Your Popcorn, Blake gives a pre-screening review of The Hitman’s Bodyguard, reviews The Glass Castle and reads through all the latest Reel News.
In this weeks segment of Reel News, Blake pays respect to SJ Harris, the stuntwoman who was tragically killed in a motorcycle stunt gone wrong on the set of Deadpool 2. He also talks about Apple’s decision to set aside $1 billion for original content and MoviePass to lower their prices and the backlash from AMC.
The Glass Castle is a film about a dysfunctional family starring Woody Harrelson and Brie Larson. Blake enjoyed the performances of both stars, but thought the direction of the plot and writing faults made some emotional scenes in the movie pretty toothless. Overall he gave the film 2.5/5 buckets.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard was a hilarious action-packed thrill ride. Ryan Reynolds plays an uptight executive protection agent who is forced to protect his mortal enemy, a notorious hitman portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson. Blake felt these two actors had great chemistry and that their comedic styles complimented each other nicely. Blake gave this movie 3.75/5 buckets.
