The Lost City

“The Lost City” is a 2022 RomCom/Adventure movie with a blockbuster cast starring Sandra Bullock (Bird Box), Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street), Daniel Radcliffe (Horns), Brad Pitt (Burn After Reading), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Office Christmas Party), and Oscar Nunez (The Office).

A Romantic Adventure writer (Bullock) is captured by a billionaire (Radcliffe) who thinks she holds the secret to finding a treasure in the Lost City of D. Her cover model (Tatum) comes up with a plan to save her and prove to her that he’s more than just a pretty face.

I love the casting in this one, I’m a huge fan of Radcliffe, Tatum, and Pitt. All are hilarious and great actors. So, I had high hopes for this one, it looks hilarious in the trailer. Unfortunately, this one is a disappointment. It’s one of those movies where the majority of the funny parts are shown in the trailer, sure there’s a few funny spots here and there, but overall, it’s not that funny. I found myself bored a few times. It’s not due to the acting, everyone is solid, it just falls a little flat. Overall, I give it a 6/10.


Logan Lucky

‘Logan Lucky’ is a 2017 crime/comedy starring Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Adam Driver (Star Wars: the Rise of Skywalker), Seth MacFarlane (The Orville), Riley Keough (The Lodge), Katie Holmes (Dawson’s Creek), Daniel Craig (Casino Royale), Farrah Mackenzie (Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors), and Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby). Two Brothers Jimmy (Tatum), and Clyde Logan (Driver) decide to rob Charlotte Motor Speedway during Nascar’s biggest race. They need the help of master safe cracker Joe Bang (Craig), only problem is Bang is behind bars, so they must bust him out and get him back before anyone notices he’s gone.

First off ‘Logan Lucky’ has a blockbuster cast, and the story is great. Think of ‘Oceans 11’ except with rednecks, that’s the easiest way to describe it. First and foremost it’s a heist movie, and it’s a great one at that. It’s full of twists and turns and an elaborate plot. There’s not really a movie quite like it, it’s a much watch. You can currently check it out on Amazon Prime, I give it a 9/10.

Hail, Caesar!

‘Hail, Caesar!’ is a 2016 mystery/comedy currently streaming on Netflix, which is more mystery than comedy. It features a block buster cast, seriously a lot of heavy hitters in this one, including Josh Brolin (Deadpool 2, Avengers: Endgame), George Clooney, Tilda Swinton (Avengers: Endgame, Doctor Strange), Ralph Fiennes (Kubo and the Two Strings, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Jonah Hill (War Dogs, 21 Jump Street), Channing Tatum (Magic Mike, 21 Jump Street), Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Endgame), and Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story). Plus a few others, it’s hard to think of another movie with this many top actors and actresses.

‘Hail, Caesar!’ is a period piece set in the golden age of Hollywood. It follows a studio fixer going through his daily struggles of righting what’s wrong in the Hollywood studio. I love period films centered around the golden age of Hollywood, I always find it as an interesting time in Hollywood and history in general. There are several mini plots in this movie and one main one with George Clooney being kidnapped on set and held for ransom. With as much fire power as this movie has it’s just an okay film. It’s interesting but that’s about it, it jumps around trying to fill in all the stars without really focusing on one direction. It reminds me of AHS when you see the star for the first time in a season and get really excited. It’s another movie with too many heavy hitters that just becomes okay at best. I give it a 6/10
