‘Movie Monday’ is a blog post I share every Monday talking about the 3 movies that have caught my attention to the most that week. Sharing how their plots, how their trailers attracted me and what the critics have to say about them (if it’s already released). You can click on the name of the movie to see the trailer.
When scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall as a solution to overpopulation, Paul and his wife Audrey decide to abandon their stressed lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community - a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.
Starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig in the lead roles.
With Jason Sudeikis, Hong Chau and Christoph Waltz in the supporting roles.
Obviously the cast made me look twice at the movie but it’s Alexander Payne (the director) because of whom I genuinely became interested.
I was checking out the reviews and they are very polarizing, some people liked it and some didn’t and it’s understandable considering the plot is so damn weird. But keep in mind that at the end of the day, it’s a social satire and satires have always gotten mixed reactions. I, for one, will surely watch it because of it’s peculiarity.
In the future, an outbreak of canine flu leads the mayor of a Japanese city to banish all dogs to an island that’s a garbage dump. The outcasts must soon embark on an epic journey when a 12-year-old boy arrives on the island to find his beloved pet.
Multiple acclaimed actors and musicians such as Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Liev Schreiber, Greta Gerwig, Harvey Keitel, Courtney B. Vance, Yoko Ono, Frances McDormand and Yojiro Noda gave their voices.
Wes Anderson is back people and once again with a stop motion animated film. The previous one was Fantastic Mr. Fox and please check it out if you haven’t, it’s really good.
I was sold at Anderson’s name and while I have not seen all of his movies, I have loved every single one that I have watched till now. Now, he is renowned for his remarkably unique framing and use of color and that is very much visible in the trailer as well, so that’s great. As for the plot, it’s very different, something definitely not seen in Hollywood before.
Lastly, coming to the cast, I love them all so much. What I specifically admire is the diversity of the voice actors, something that is very important for the movie and the industry. I’m eagerly waiting for this one!
After contracting polio at the age of 28, Robin Cavendish is confined to a bed and given only months to live. With help from his family and inventor Teddy Hall, Cavendish devotes the rest of his life to help fellow patients and the disabled.
Starring Andrew Garfield and Claire Foy in the lead roles.
Andrew Garfield is back with another biopic, this time teaming up with Andy Serkis and admittedly, when I first saw the trailer, I wasn’t interested in it cause it felt a little cliche in the style of making, maybe it was just the way the trailer was edited. But anyways, after reading the early reviews, I am pretty intrigued and am genuinely looking forward to seeing it.
Even though Ivy only has plants, every rogue treats them like pets
Jon sometimes talks to Ivy’s plants and Ivy has videotaped it because she thinks it’s cute.
Jon, Garfield, Ivy, and Selina have a pet-sitting pact that if one of them is out while the others are in Arkham they have to take care of the other’s pets. If two or three people are out they draw straws.
Batman is in on this pact and pet-sits for them when they’re all in Arkham, he also checks on everyone’s pets regularly because he likes them.
Jon’s crow Craw is a licensed service animal because of how often Jon dissociates and has panic attacks.
Garfield has a newfoundland named Rusty and a leonberger named Roman and they are both licensed therapy dogs
Rusty and Roman have made surprise visits to Arkham for approved patients (the ones that won’t kill animals)
There are entire days spent with at least 5 rogues lying in a cuddle pile around these dogs.
Garfield also has a Saint Bernard puppy named Theresa that he’s training to be a therapy dog.
On top of Craw, Jon also has three cats, a Maine Coon kitten named Dullahan, a very fat calico named Katrina, and a very, very big Norwegian forest cat named Bones.
Selina has a lot of unnamed strays that wander in but she owns two cats and their litter of kittens, the cats are named Marie and Antoine and the kittens are all named after presidents.
All of Ivy’s plants have names.
Jon is one of the few people who knows all of their names and refers to them as such, Ivy still doesn’t like him much.
Selina sends people videos and snapchats of her messing with cats, sometimes the ones belonging to the rogue she sends them to. She also has a popular vine account where she does this.
Jon has ended up in the batcave at least six times because Dullahan or Bones got out
Damian really likes Bones, he wants to keep Bones.
