The Hitman's Bodyguard action
Hollywood's put together Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson for a
Action Movie. The chemistry will be everything in what looks
like a The-Other-Guys-type comedy. "The world's top bodyguard gets a new client, a hit man who must testify at the International Court of Justice. They must put their differences aside and work together to make it to the trial on time."
The Director is Patrick
Hughes who got picked by Sylvester Stallone for The
Expendables 3 with only one full-length movie, Red Hill, under his belt!
Since I liked Red Hill and The Expendables 3, I look forward to this
having some really great Action.
thriller September 1 "A team of Navy SEALs
discover an underwater treasure in a Bosnian lake." Stars
Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire). Okay,
to be a 'girl' here, again, for a moment. He's great but the scruffy
beard and crooked bottom teeth are REALLY distracting from his solid
performances and beautiful eyes. Now that I've said that you won't
be able to take your eyes off his teeth. LOL This movie looks like fun. It's a
Heist Action Movie with
Super Soldiers. You gotta love that! Judging by the trailer,
the level of property destruction is off the charts. Plus
attitude, gotta have attitude, Boy Toys, and Camaraderie and
Dominance (lots of the
Essentials)! Looks like a TRUE Action Movie.
(If you need more convincing, it's co-written by Luc Besson.
Besson knows Action.) [Ewen Bremner is in it. Every
time I see him I hear "The booze are on the grind" (the bulls are on
the ground) from The Rundown.]
American Assassin action
thrillerSeptember 15 "A story centered on
counterterrorism agent Mitch Rapp." Not much of a description,
but one hell of a trailer! So who is Dylan
O'Brien? How did he land this role? He's the Maze Runner
kid, and he was in Deepwater Horizon. Everything in this
movie will hinge on his character arc. I sure hope they do something
with it so we root for him. Are we looking at a possible new Action
Figure?! Please say yes, and go on to do more Action Movies, Dylan .
. . .
Michael Keaton is in this as well—he's as good as it gets for me
since Pacific Heights (1990) where I was blown
away by how terrifying his subtle performance was. He wasn't even
nominated for an award!

Hugh Jackman is Wolverine for (maybe) one last time—what's not
to love?! The character of "Laura" played by Dafne Keen is so
intriguing. Love that they have downplayed it a bit in the first

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No

comedy fantasy May 19 "Captain Jack Sparrow search

WONDER WOMAN (at last!) action adventure
Blurb from IMDb:
"Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of
the Amazons, trained warrior." . . . Wait, what? That's not a
sentence. It continues "When a pilot crashes and tells of
conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end
all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny." Directed by a woman (as it should be):Patty
Jenkins. Gal Gadot kicks it into high gear playing Wonder Woman.
The trailer gave me goose bumps when the rode across the beach.

Atomic Blonde action mystery thriller
July 28 "An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin
during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and
recover a missing list of double agents." Another "NOC" list movie
(non-official cover)? This is being directed by 87eleven's David
Leitch. The first trailer really turned me off to this movie.
First, Charlize Theron is too thin for this role. She's a
supermodel for Pete's sake (sigh). Second, the character is the kind
of woman that makes people hate women. It seems like something to
turn men on. I don't know what it will take for me to see this
movie, but I am not inclined to give it my money. It has a website:
I would like to like it, Charlize is selling the severity of the
Action, but she's so sexualized, she's bisexual, she dresses
'inappropriately', she's just every man's fantasy of being killed
while being turned on (or some such garbage that seems to be the
whole reason for Grindhouse). I just want a truly physically strong
woman to kick ass in non-revealing clothing while not being 'sexy'
by anything overt. Is that too much to ask?! Guess I'll have
to watch to see what kind of 'hero' is she . . . "equal parts
spycraft, sensuality, and savagery" ew,no. Written by a man, Kurt
Johnstad (this movie has something bad in common, then, with
300: Rise of an Empire, but he also wrote Act of Valor,
so something good), this is David Leitch's solo directoral debut.
The trailer couldn't look more professional and the Action, being
87eleven, will surely be top notch. Plus it has an impressive cast.
I was really shocked when I first saw the trailer and SO
disappointed. This is exactly the wrong direction for me for a solo
movie for a powerful woman. A man's take to be sure. I'll keep
waiting then, for the 'right' kind of female character. One that
doesn't set unattainble beauty standards, use her sexuality,
dress like a male fantasy, or have to sell the Action because she's
