In Hawaii, Alice and Tatiana charmed the Stangle clan, but were almost exposed when Alice, who is suffering from PTSD-like having some flashbacks of her personal wedding, she gets drunk and get jealous, offhanded remarks to Jeanie. At that moment, Mike with his bisexual woman cousin, Terry, started competing for the attention of Tatiana. The brothers scheduled a swim with the dolphins’ package for the whole family; but, the ladies, convince Jeanie with her fiancé Eric, to have the ATV tour into the mountains. Tatiana and Alice showed off and performed tricks for the ATVs. Mike tried similar tricks, but ended up booming to Jeanie and harshly bruised her face. Alice felt bad and bribes the masseur to provide Jeanie the massage with the style of Tantric.


The Writers View:

The four actors were all adorable in their lead roles and it was not really that bad like what was written by some critics. Basically, the plot and every scene in it, even the dialogues were not really that admirable and there was really no fun in it that makes it under the comedy film category. There are moments when the film had to be cute, but was ruined, and these are the films that were funny before, but were done so well and in this case, it was made to what they are expected to have. I believe that they can still give a better version of these, if only they are really prepared.

After leaving the prison, Darnell discovered herself broke, hated, and homeless. Fortunately, she tracked down the previous assistant Claire, the only individual who was willing to assist. While being with Claire and the younger daughter, the ex-con creates the latest business representation for the brownie empire. Unfortunately, most of the matured foes stand in the process of her come back to the top.


The Writers’ View:

She can be better or even best leaving off this for somebody else and place all the efforts in reprising her acting as Sookie in the remake of the Gilmore Girls. There had been no sufficient words to describe this movie because the script should not have gotten green. There is also something questionable viewing little kids fighting, because they were all girls and what they are doing is somewhat not relevant at all. This could have been funny if all of them were boys, or at least mixed, to watch kids that are being with each other is something that is hard to laugh with and I find it deeply offensive.

She encourages them of the tales authenticity by furtively hitting the remote control to make the lights off inside the house to terrify them.


The Writers View:

This movie is one of the best samples. The same hackneyed, one-note, recycled, shallow, and the not so funny instances were present again, complete with identical people. At any rate, this one was not about some of the beaten down dark women that needed to discover her location on earth, stand up for her man, and sleep. It is mind overwhelming how he may pop out the POS and usually handles to attract the viewers. Madea’s answered for everything is violence. Then, if this is not that bad enough, Perry, now is blatantly thieving comedic stuffs from the dead people.

trash-fire-2016-3


The Writers View:

Trash Fire for real was not a horror or romance movie as what was indicated, instead, it is a kind of a disturbing and unpleasant drama with its deceptive conclusion. All of the characters were not that pleasing. Owen here is horrible and there was no reason for Isabelle to fall in-love with him at all. But, later on the audience understands the cause of his twisted character. Isabelle is suspicious and takes no manner towards Owen stupidities. While Florence seemed to be a dire psychiatrist, that naps along the gathering with her client. The homosexual Beatrice was also the victim of Violet badness and insanity. Violet is also included in the sickest villains and one of the cause to recommend this movie. Sadly, Richard Bates Jr. didn’t know how to finish his movie creating the choice of the two dark endings without any use that Beatrice and Owen deserved.

Carl Black with his family is going away from Chicago. After stealing lots of cash from the famous criminal drug ruler, Key Flo, and considering that he might be jailed for the next 5-6 years, Carl Black left the hustling living behind for an even better living. Carl with his present wife Lorena, son Carl Jr., daughter Allie Black and their cousin Cronut packed up and transferred to Beverly Hills. As a result, Carl could not have picked the worse moment to transfer. They arrived perfectly around the moment of the yearly purge and all Carl’s own issues intertwine while the total crime is just legal for 12-hours.


The Writer’s View:

At this moment, if you are still attempting to crash the parody film from each angle and examine it then, it is for sure a waste of time. Parody films were literally styled to become a not so good film. The only aim of the movie is to make you laugh. It is understandable that some may feel that the movie is somewhat a theatrical release, and the money is not worth it, particularly with the music and art concern. The truth is there was really no impressive storyline and the amazing actors just gave a good Ole parody funniness. The movie started out good, but it just gets dull, lame and non-adventurous, with the non-believers action the whole way through. After watching this movie, nobody should complain again regarding Quentin Tarantino’s moderate application of the N – word in his movies. To say an N-word is pointless applied to this movie and does disservice to a word gratuitous.

Then the affectionate girlfriend decided to organize an amazing surprise family get-together during the weekend that both of the families must be present.

weekend1

His plans blown up all over his face, particularly with the thoughts that the coming of his ghetto-fied kin, the Stankershets. Courtney and Travis portrayed love interests who battles to hold on to each other with their relationship over their two families on wage war in the blast of hilarity. It is a far-east to counter to the Deep South, traditional and strict, Korean traditions versus the present country way of living. At the end part, Travis must discover a means to create peacefully the two families, co-existing sufficient enough for him to have a proposed for the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life.


The Writers View:

The movie is just like a bad film from the 80’s. Their idea was really great, and maybe not that original, but it will certainly take you to the present Asian black thing that no one talked about. The Asian traditions are so famous that it could have been a unique, but it all concludes with the thought since like white racist who wrote the script. It is also annoying to see a performing Korean wife who is not really Korean, talks with an accent, does not look like one, and does not act like the real Korean woman. The moviemakers just applied Chinese stereotypes and it was really funny at all. What they let the viewers see is not really believable anymore or can make someone laugh either.

Smoke with Oil Dresden, the pair of assassins called as “Allentown Boys”, goes on a drug-processing service run by the Mexican drug alliance and murdered everyone inside, with boss King Diaz. The couple acquires Diaz’s cat Iglesias, and when they are shortly distracted by policemen arriving, the cat escapes. Meanwhile, Rell has just been forsaken by his girlfriend; he locates a cat at the doorstep, takes the rapid liking to it, and called it Keanu. Clarence cousin of Rell came over to applaud him up and encounter Keanu too.

Key-and-Peele

After two weeks, Hannah, Clarence’s wife, and her daughter went out of town together with the husband and the daughter of their family friend, and leaved Clarence alone. Rell, is much better-off in taking care of Keanu, brings Clarence out to view a Liam Neeson film, indicating him he needed to warm up and just be with him. When they come back to Rell’s quarters, they discovered that the place goes through and Keanu was missing. A distressed Rell drags Clarence in the next-door residences of his wide plant dealer Hulka that reluctantly revealed that 17th St. Blips is a local gang, and may have attacked instead the house of Rell. Hulka directed them to the downtown strip club; Clarence and Rell went there, where Rell persuaded Clarence to take on the gangster persona just to infiltrate with the gang, naming themselves as Shark Tank and Tectonic. The two gathered with Hi-C, who originally is doubtful of them, but nevertheless, brings them to encounter with the leader of the gang, Cheddar, who misjudge them for the Boys of Allentown. Cheddar contained Keanu, and they inquire for a cat. He will just return the cat if they will come along as the skilled consultant for the Blips on the run to vend the latest drug named as holy shit, and they both reluctantly agree.


The Writers’ View:

It is always hard to combine comedy and excessive violence because it will come out with a thing that works. Here is the other sample of why it did not work. There is really nothing funny about gangs shooting and murders it out. The cat that did not grow past from being a kitten is really the highlight of this film. It is so nice to watch a film like this that has a cute cat on the screen. For those that are a huge fan of Peele and Key, their show will be something that is going around your existence. There is a lot to expect in this movie, a bit of good laughs to come with little disappointments too. Keanu was not really a total fail because it had its opinion, its moments, and Peele and Key were obviously hilarious as ever.
