The producer is Blumhouse Productions, which in recent years has given theaters a vast assortment of horror titles, some of which are valuable as “Insidious” and “Get out”, others in “splatter with panache” style for teenagers. Well, of such a large assortment of titles “Fantasy Island” is probably the worst.
The story sees five lucky prize contest winners land on a lush island. Waiting for them is the manager of a luxury resort, Mr. Roarke (Michael Peña), whose task will be to create a fantasy for each guest.
“Fantasy Island” takes a dated but successful idea and tries to adapt it to meet the tastes of the new generations. The intriguing premises and the suggestive location, however, do not find the right ingredients that make up the whole so it is a missed opportunity. Unnecessarily convoluted and full of illogical narrative overturns, “Fantasy Island” leaves us exhausted: the word “fantasy” is repeated by all the characters in a ridiculously obsessive way, it is not known why every now and then a man appears who is prowling in the jungle (Michael Rooker ), the characters are all annoying or whining and the ending is nothing short of messy, full of course changes
I believe that Top Gun 2 will be the film of the year 2020 but also one of the colossal (or historical films) of the ’20s. Although I was born in the second half of the 80s, I manged to still enjoy the legacy of this film, which has left an indelible memory of the 80s in everyone’s memory. It is impressive to think that this film launched the Reyban culture – the brand of sunglasses – and contributed to the global success of actor Tom Cruise.
Although this film will not match the success of its predecessor – at least in mass culture – it will be a great success and a great confirmation, especially for those who love the action genre.
Undoubtedly the film top gun follows the nature of many Americans in military or patriotic fanaticism. But in any case, the film still leaves a romantic imprint like few films have ever made in history. Another interesting thing is the music and the soundtrack that will accompany the scenes in the film. TopGun is unforgettable especially for its soundtrack, in particular for the song “Take my breath away” of Berlin. I don’t think there will be a hit of the same caliber but I still hope in the beauty of the music.
The new trailer of the movie remake “Mulan” is enjoying success, receiving reviews and positive comments on all social media, except in Hong Kong, where protesters call for a boycott of the vision of the film that will be released in theaters on March 27th 2020.
Hong Kong citizens oppose the Chinese actress who at the beginning of this year held the Kong Kong police, accused of brutality by protesters.
The film is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan and is a live action adaptation of Disney’s 1998 animated film of the same name. The film stars Liu Yifei as the eponymous character, alongside Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, and Jet Li in supporting roles.
Plans for a live-action Mulan remake began in 2010, however the project never came to fruition. In March 2015, a new attempt was announced and Caro was hired to direct in February 2017. Liu was cast in the title role in November 2017, following a casting call of 1,000 actresses and the rest of the cast joined over the following year. Filming began in August 2018 and lasted through November, taking place in New Zealand and China.
Mulan is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on March 27, 2020.
