This thing here for 11 on the big screen on Ashley to -- on -- -- -- dot com movie reviewer adjusting Cragg.
We start today's chat with a big action packed blockbuster sequel heading to -- in QD 3-D and 3-D IMAX yes.
It GI Joseph retaliation.
Just in have -- it.
It's more of a reboot than than a sequel what we're getting here is -- less cartoonish version of the original movie we're getting a very hyper stylized action globe trotting adventure a lot Michael Bay with a lot of explosions.
And the rock and Bruce Willis and Channing Tatum.
And what about the stunt work because you have to up the -- -- that stood out.
Let me tell you there's this one great scene on top of the Himalayan mountains where it snake -- escaping from this.
-- capsule and they are swinging from mountaintop to mountaintop in sword fighting and shooting him all the stuff and it is.
A lot of CGI but it looks really cool I would say -- the best action sequence of the year and even though this movie is a little bit.
Dole and generic that scenes.
Really stands out -- it.
Have its roots in the original cartoon that people really now do we State Street to the classic characters to -- -- Little Cammie Alice -- that are familiar for people who really were big fans of.
I think fans of your Joseph will recognize GI Joseph Moore in this movie than the original thing.
What you have the same characters from the cartoon and and that action figures yet -- toys or were big into the vehicles yes I actually see a lot of that stuff here -- fans of the original poisoned cartoon.
Find a home here with this.
Hitting -- -- would like to look for that in the movie is that are based on something from their childhood.
And all let's switch over because there's another.
Movie coming out that's completely in the other end of the spectrum and the place -- on the -- here we're talking intense drama focused around family relationships.
Particularly father son relationships.

It again stars Ryan Gosling obviously probably -- -- -- Menendez and Bradley Cooper's adjusting your.
I have a short list of of great movies this year so far and it's only march or April but this is.
Really close to the top -- saying is.
The road to hell -- -- good intentions and these two characters Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling are two men who want to live the American dream but they go about it and such a the wrong way.
To get what they want that it and eventually affects their children and it's so fascinating to watch.
These two characters make these decisions right before our eyes even though we know it's the wrong thing to do -- don't do them but they go go and do it anyway.
And it's just it it's great to watch this this -- come off these characters and what you find underneath is is really fascinating.
And now let's not about acting power because Ryan -- playing I know that we -- a lot on the cover of magazines that.
He is a great actor.
And -- even Mendez who does comedy and -- she gets to show off that and Bradley Cooper who now is sort of establishing itself.
As a as serious actor what did you think about the performances.
Didn't think he was a great actor from silver linings playbook I think this -- -- really seal the deal for you.

So it's alien invasion.
Aliens invade and take over everybody's body's kind of like invasion of the body snatchers and search -- Ronan is girl who becomes.
Infected by these aliens but -- -- resist this and you know.
Create this revolution and bring the world back to its normal state.
With the story of course -- attention twilight fans love triangle and others try all of us that even large violate a day.

And it's a new franchise for the very busy these days -- Rock Johnson I'm sure it'll do well the box of we'll -- planning more GI Joseph movies coming and he will most likely be taking.
