Dear Will Packer, how many comedies are you go to make us fall in love with? Well we definitely know the hit comedy train is not stopping with his newest comedy, Little!  The film centers on software tycoon, Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall)  who is wildly successful and hilariously selfish. Her assistant, April (Issa Rae), is an aspiring app maker and spends most of her time catering to Jordan’s every need and forewarning the staff of her wrath. Jordan’s temper is “i” when a magical spell from an angry kid turns her back into her younger, “Little,” self (Marsai Martin)!  April and Little Jordan Sanders must find away to undo the magic that has made her  a kid again, avoid the pitfalls of middle school life, all the while coming up with a pitch that will save her company from ruin!

regina hall litttle movie

We have to say we were more than a “Little” charmed with Little. The movie definitely connects with your inner child and jump starts the woes and fears that come from working for an overbearing and demanding boss. Regina, Issa, and Marsai are all brilliant actresses and their comedic chemistry is definitely one for the ages. You honestly have never seen Regina in a role like this, but Marsai’s role definitely reeds “Diane Johnson” gone “Angry Boss!” Issa is still “Insecure” as April, but she more than proves she has what it takes to become a boss and boss around a mini-boss. You just be sure to catch Little in theaters everywhere TODAY!

Grade: B+

What We Liked

marsai martin little movie

-Regina Hall as Jordan Sanders! We have never seen her as an angry boss in all the years she has been acting!

-Little Jordan’s school arc. Seeing her connect with her new friends was nothing short of heartwarming.

-Tone Bell as “Preston.” Tone was hilarious as April’s love interest. Although we are not sure if their budding relationship wouldn’t be an HR issue….

 

What We Loved

“The message is loud and clear,” Jeff Fowler tweeted Thursday. “You aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be.”

Fowler, a visual effects artist who’s making his directorial debut with the “Sonic” film, included the hashtag #gottafixfast.

Social media users complained about the CGI look of the titular hero, with the character’s human-style teeth drawing the most flak. Video game blog Kotaku compiled some of the most entertaining reactions.

Fowler did not specify what changes are in store for the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8.

We have to say Sonic’s appearance in the film is lackluster to say the least, we are looking forward to seeing what changes–and we hope they are sweeping–are made! What do you guys think about Sonic and his first movie trailer? Leave your thoughts in the comments’ section below!

[REVIEW] YOU WILL CRY! “Avengers: Endgame” (@Avengers)–THE EPIC CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE OF YOUR LIFE!

Iron Man…Thor…Captain America…Black Widow…Hawkeye…Hulk…War Machine…Rocket Raccoon…Nebula. These are the Avengers who are giving you the cinematic experience of your life! It was nearly a year ago (in our universe) we watched as “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” The Avengers, and The Guardians of The Galaxy fail to save Earth, and the universe at large from Thanos’s mission to wipe out half of life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only did he succeed, but half of our heroes were literally swept away in the wind; as “with a snap” they were all turned to dust. Needless to say the remaining Avengers, and a powerful newcomer, prove to be tenacious as ever in their determination to avenge the fallen and take down The Mad Titan that took their loved ones and the world as we know it in Avengers: Endgame!

Avengers: Endgame is easily the most highly anticipated film of the last decade bringing to an end story lines and fantastic tales that have spanned over twenty-two films! This is far from a film, or even your regular superhero blockbuster, as the array of emotions you “true believers” will feel spans from grief and intrigue to righteous fury and an overwhelming sense of satisfaction. Earth’s home team, with a little extraterrestrial help, bring him the gold. For the rest of your days whether you hum it in your head, profess it from your mouth, or vibe it through your soul, “AVENGERS ASSEMBLE,” will be your new war cry! Hey Marvel Studios, what’s next?!

WARNING: Spoilers–PROCEED WITH CAUTION!

What We Liked

avengers endgame movie review

-The expanded line up of Avengers and remaining Guardians of The Galaxy joining forces to avenge the universe. Earth is still a big place, and even with the heavy losses both teams took they know they’re stronger together to protect what remains of life as they know it.

Captain Marvel’s timeliness and updated look. The girl knows how to make an entrance, and proves her mettle as perhaps the mightiest of the Avengers. Oh, and her comics’ accurate haircut isn’t bad either.

-The involvement of time travel to not only fix Thanos’s cosmic level genocide, but revisit some pretty awesome moments from previous Marvel Studios films that were near and dear to our heart. Somehow each of our characters get the closure, assurance, or peace they need to get the job done.

-Gamora’s heroism! No matter what time line she comes from, she proves she’s a hero. Her demise in the previous film is more than avenged in Endgame.

-The fury of the Scarlet Witch knows no bounds! She hurt Thanos like we have never seen, forcing him to fire on his own troops to save his life and temporarily stop the Avengers from winning.

-Seeing The Ancient One take down Hulk with a single blow, and finally doing what was best to save the universe. Yet again, no one could take a stone from a Sorcerer Supreme.

-Earth being the home of New Asgard and Thor joining the Guardians of The Galaxy!

What We Loved

hawkeye and black widow avengers endgame

-The girl power of this film! Captain Marvel, Scarlet Witch, Valkyrie, Rescue (Pepper Potts), Okoye, Wasp, Nebula, Mantis, and Gamora are one helluva line of offense when it came to getting Spider-Man to his destination.

-The final, epic battle to defeat Thanos and forces. Never before, and maybe never again, have the Avengers Assembled in the thousands with the combined might of every Guardian of The Galaxy, Doctor Strange and the other wizards, Black Panther and The Wakandan Army, and the revived Avengers, save Vision and Black Widow! It was the battle of a lifetime and worth every moment of waiting.

-Iron Man finally learned to love in the form of his daughter with Pepper, Morgan Stark. The playboy finally took off all that emotional baggage and daddy issues he was using as armor to make the greater good happen. Tony Stark, you really are a hero.

-Captain America’s swan song–Captain America is truly worthy, ask Mjolnir (Thor’s hammer)! His one on one with Thanos was one for the ages. A man armed with a mystic war hammer and a nigh unbreakable shield versus a being with godlike strength is quite the spectacle to see! We hate he’s officially retiring, but we just know this new Captain America is going to do some amazing things.

-The familial bond between Black Widow and Hawkeye. Their “fight” with one another to sacrifice themselves for one another and to get the Soul Stone is endearing and tragic, then again what’s love without tragedy?

-Pepper Potts in he “Rescue” armor! She literally stood by her “Iron Man.”

What We Hated

iron man avengers endgame

-This was Stan Lee’s final cameo in any Marvel movies…RIP Stan, you’re a true hero and we miss you more than ever. Thanks for being a true superhero from all of us true believers.

-Black Widow and Iron Man’s demises. We knew there would be casualties in this war, but not these two heroes. Rest in peace? There’s got to be a way to bring them back.

-A “smart Hulk.” Hulk’s “Dr. Banner” persona is not what we need in a battle like this. An angry Hulk is a powerful and we were owed and epic battle between he and Thanos so he could reclaim his title of being “The strongest there is!”

-No post credit scenes! Really Marvel? We need some kind of sneak peek for the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You seem to be unwittingly pitching “Young Avengers?” We’ll see!
