Secret ending? No.

Running time: 106 minutes (~1.75 hours)

“Big Eyes” is a dramatic retelling of the life of artist Margaret Keane and her marriage (and subsequent divorce) to husband Walter Keane. It stars Amy Adams (Margaret Keane), Christoph Waltz (Walter Keane), and Terence Stamp (John Canaday).

“Big Eyes” might be a drama, but it also has elements of comedy and has a light-hearted sense of fun to it. It never takes itself too seriously, allowing the cast to portray the characters as larger-than-life people dealing with an over-the-top situation. That’s not to say it descends into slapstick, but rather, it’s a tongue-in-cheek tone that pervades the film.

It's Samurai Josh

I was born in 1986 and because of this I grew up on ’80s and ’90s television and movies. Those were weird times, and movies and television could be summarized by like 3 or 4 major themes: 1/2: martial arts and extreme sports were everywhere. Don’t believe me about this? Well then here are some movies to remind you of that: Ninja Turtles, 3 Ninjas, Surf Ninjas, Sidekicks, Rad, Airborne. 3:kids were in super dangerous, super irresponsible, and super unrealistic situations? Want an example? Well have you ever heard of Iron Eagle? Or how about Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead? Finally the last thing that summarized movies of the time were that there were a crapload of post apocalyptic movies. Examples? American Cyborg, Fortress.

Hell I don’t really know why I was listing examples. As long as you were born before like ’98/’99 you’ll know…

Fantastic Four Teaser Excites

The Dinglehopper

Yesterday the upcoming rebooted Fantastic Four teaser was released, and I found myself surprisingly excited by the prospects it introduced.

Now, to be clear, I am not the Fantastic Four Fanatic in our house. That moniker goes to Michael, who will defend the impact, if not the quality, of the two films that hit theaters starting a decade ago. They saved summer blockbusters, he repeatedly says to me when I denigrate them. I have no doubt that’s true. And now the rights are going to go rogue again if Fox doesn’t release another film using the property, so here it is. Due to rumors of chaos and other film-making troubles on the set, most people’s expectations are low. But I think this teaser, as much as teasers can, should restore at least some open-mindedness to what might be.

As a middle-level fan of the characters, here’s what I’m intrigued by in the…

Aiming For the Fantastic

In One Ear...

So a trailer has hit for August’s Fantastic Four Reboot.

Doing a complete origin reboot with Doctor Doom as an angry hacker and a young Reed Richards… seemed…I don’t know…pointless.  Hiring Josh Trank was one of the more interesting choices.  None of the acting choices really thrilled me…and there was the talk that they are about to do some reshoots (originally reported as being up to a months worth, now just a few days).  It sounded messy.

The trailer looks nice.  The film is heavily relying on the Ultimate version of the Fantastic Four.  But yet, I am not really ready to feel excited to see the film.

It looks very dark and plodding.  It looks almost like Interstellar with Superpowers.  It does not, however, look fun.  And the Fantastic Four should be fun.  They are explorers of the fantastic, and they are a family.  And the teaser looks like a…
