What’s on the big screen this summer 2019 ?

Hey there movie fans,

I am looking forward to this summers movies and of course a little sunshine. I am super excited to attend some summer premieres because standing outside in the UK cold weather in winter is just not fun.  So what films are you most excited to see? Check out my line up and comment below let me know if you like my choices.

 

1. “Shaft.”

Release: June 14
Rating: R
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Jesse T. Usher, Richard Roundtree. Shaft

The new Shaft movie is coming, and I am looking forward to this one. The sequel to the 2000 film although the movie has not changed the name Jackson plays a cool detective all originated from the blaxploitation classic of 1971. However, in this new chapter, we have three generations with Jr. I am curious about this and of course I want to see how this cast work together to bring this action to life. Let’s be honest; Jackson is never going to age black don’t crack baby!  Check out the trailer here.

2. “Men In Black: International.”

Release: June 14
Rating:
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson.

MEN IN BLACK

Ok before you say anything I know, they didn’t need to do another, but I am seriously curious. Now, Will Smith is the king of the Men In Black films, and the first one will always be the best one, but for the sake of me not minding my own business I want to know what Chris and Tessa are up to.

I highly doubt this can replicate the Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith tag team, but I want to see Hemsworth and newbie Thompson, a trainee with the Men In Black crew work together to take down these aliens. It kind of feels like she is the female Will Smith, but we’ll see, and I am slightly biased because it’s based in the serene city of London it might be intriguing to see some familiar streets on screen. Will this be as amazing? What do you think? See the trailer here:

3. “The Lion King.”

Release: July 19
Rating:
Starring: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Beyoncé, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, John Oliver.

The Lion King

Now, this has a lot to live up to because you just can’t beat a classic like  Lion King and if you didn’t cry when you know who died you are dead inside, even dogs cry at this film. (See dog crying on youtube at Lion King movie it’s all too much)

Anyway, the graphics are amazing in this remake, and James Earl Jones’s voice is just magical. I am excited to see this film. I just hope the story lives up to the beautiful classic that is the original. See the trailer here:

 

4. “John Wick: Chapter 3 -Parabellum”

Release: May 17
Rating: R
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Anjelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, Jason Mantzoukas.

John Wick 3

I think I just like Keanu, his name alone is just cool, but also he is a nice guy. Anyone who rides the subway who doesn’t have to must be cute right. The John Wick franchise is back with another, and this time Reeves is bringing the heat. I won’t say too much, but if you fancy watching it, this movie is coming out pretty soon. You can catch up the first two on either Netflix or Amazon or both. Check the trailer here:

 

I’ll be back with some more updates on summer films, and I won’t keep you all waiting so long for the next post.

Love

Johnny Depp ‘dropped’ from Pirates Of The Caribbean

Allegedly Disney is replacing  Johnny Depp ‘s character, Jack Sparrow. They want to rework the franchise changing the character aiming to bring something fresh.

While Johnny is not to blame for the last few terrible films, perhaps it seems having a new character is what the new movies need.

After attending the premiere and watching film five, the movies have simply run their course.  However, money talks so I guess Disney will squeeze what is left out of the franchise. Getting rid of Johnny Depp is just not the answer or is it? What do you think? Let me know in the comment section what will save these pirates?

In the meantime, watch this clip of Johnny Depp speaking about how much playing Jack Sparrow means to him. He slips into the character so well and I think he will miss this role. However, a part of him may just be a little thankful it’s over.

In the meantime I will be giving you the scoop and I’m hoping the premiere will be in my city because if it is I’ll be all over it. 

Will you watch this film it’s been 15 years since the last one but as always Mr Smith always gets his way. I just hope it’s not disappointing.

Bohemian Rhapsody Review & Exclusive World Premiere Pics

Hello Movie Fans,

This movie is amazing, I was not a Queen fan prior but after this movie, I am officially a Freddie Mercury fan. 🙂 *Radio Gaga Clap Clap*

Bohemian Rhapsody is a beautiful celebration of Queen, their excellent music and extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury.  The film explores the rise of the band and their songs and revolutionary sound. While the movie is about Queen the focus is really on Freddie Mercury and it’s a tribute to his legacy and his fabulous talent. Having suffered greatly without Queen, Freddie reunites with his bandmates just in time for a smashing Live Aid performance.  Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.

First, let’s begin with the main actor Rami Malek he embodied Freddie, it was like watching the real deal. Malek’s movements style and his speech pattern in the film are perfect and his performance is simply outstanding. It was magical.

When meeting Rami, he spoke about feeling honoured and humbled to have taken on the role. I was not familiar with him prior to the film, but I was deeply impressed with his acting. The film is named after one of Queen’s famous hit songs and is the ideal movie title because it sums up the spirit of the film.

 

I won’t give away any spoilers, but it was great to know more about Freddie’s family life, his original name and cultural background. (I even saw his sister at the premiere). Watching his journey to stardom is beautifully executed. This film digs deep giving us golden nuggets at every turn. You do not have to be a Queen fan to watch this but after watching the film you will sing your little heart out! I can’t get enough of the soundtrack.

This movie is amazing and has done the legacy of Queen proud. The script is well written the casting is brilliant and with the help of the original band members, the film will take you back in time.

I attended the film premiere for this fab flick check out a few snaps and an exclusive video I filmed from the main man himself, Rami Malek. Thank you for a great night.

The handsome Michael ‘Bae’ Jordan has dropped the trailer for Creed II and I am interested. Adonis Creed is struggling with a few life issues, his personal duties V his training. However forced to face an opponent with links to his family, Creed & Rocky Balboa together  fight on.

Skate Kitchen Film Review 

Hello Movie Fans. 

It’s Cici here, back at it again. 

I had the pleasure of watching a really interesting docufilm today. On the guest list at the lovely BFI film I had a blast thank you to the team for the invite.

This new film combines both  documentary and movie and is a really interesting mix. I actually really liked the movie. At times  it took me back to my teenage days when mum wouldn’t  let ‘you live your best life ‘because they just don’t get it. I’m sure we have all been there. 

This film shows an 18 year old passionate about the world of skating but her mother is not so keen and wants her to just be a girl and do girly shit.However the reality is this young woman has found the thing that brings her to life and is destined to inspire others and will do it regardless of what others think. 

The message behind the movie is girls can,women can and equality is at the heart of the film. Exploration of sexuality, drugs of course boy trouble, this film is all about just hanging out and being young! It removes the serious parts of life and pulls its viewers into a moment of pure chillin’. It’s a coming of age meets the young generation trying to find themselves and of course Instagram is at the centre! With a cool 90’s feel meets the mordern era this movie brings something fresh. 

What appears to seen as a “bro” sport skating is something girls do too and this was excellently demonstrated. While feeling slow at times (with the girl next to me falling asleep 👀) the movie takes a slower route but with patience its gets there. With lots of wide skating shots to popular music at times these girls felt like Superheros flying on their wheels taking over the streets of NY! 

Speaking to the director I asked her how did she blend the improvisational moments and the scripted moments and her response was “editing.” With swift smooth shots you could feel the real moments and the scripted ones and I liked the contrast. The ending was a struggling but evidently  with films of this nature it’s not easy to wrap up you just want to keep on going. 

Overall it’s a nice film well made with a simple but important message especially for the younger generation (minus the drugs) women can do anything and be a total badass at it! 

Skate Kitchen hits UK cinema September 28th

SuperFly Film Review

Hello Movie Fans,

UK Cinema is bringing more diversity to the movie screens, and here at CiciMuseSee, I’m excited.

Superfly starring Trevor Jackson and Jason Mitchell is a remake of the 70’s classic Superfly.  Priest and his partner attempt to arrange a deal because this drug dealer is trying to get out of the drug game. Nevertheless, his criminal past holds him back and getting out is not easy. Facing rivals and gangs this corrupt lifestyle takes him on a difficult journey. Meeting two corrupt police officers and a bunch of enemies and double-crossers his path to freedom is a challenge.

SuperFly
Starring Trevor Jackson & Jason Mitchell
The film desires to take on the blaxploitation classic, and while a lot smoother than the original 70’s movie with glossy characters the film feels very long at times perhaps because we are introduced to the concept early on.  The film definitely looks superfly a fancy remake with exceptional visuals, costumes and hairstyles.  It could be argued that the original movie didn’t really need a remake but this is a decent watch, and what it lacks in originality it makes up in a fancy pizazz, merging today’s video culture with the old school 70’s vibe. For some, the message of the film may seem a little outdated, but for others, there may be relevance.

Check out the trailer for Superfly here!
