Dora and the Lost City of Gold leads the new cinema releases August 16th 2019

Dora and the Lost City of GoldThere are FIVE new films out for you to choose from, led by Dora and the Lost City of Gold. Here are the titles, with more info below:

    Dora and the Lost City of Gold
    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    Light Of My Life
    Good Boys

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is the Dora The Explorer movie, and the character is a 7-year-old Latina girl, and she’s been 7 ever since the show began eighteen years ago, so who better to play her than someone TEN years her senior. Yes, 17-year-old Isabela Moner from Transformers: The Last Knight (where she was Izabella) and Sicario 2: Soldado, she was Isabel. So, in this one, she’ll be Izzy Dora… Nah, I jest.

Going back to Sicario 2, she actually holds her own very well as she’s thrust into the situation, amongst everything that’s going on, whereas in Transformers 5, she started off as the plucky young girl who blew up a robot or two, and then expressed a desire to take them all on and FIGHT… then disappeared for almost an hour, and when she did come back onscreen, she just sat back in a government helicopter and let everyone else get on with the work.

Well, the most recent trailer finally does the one thing that no other trailer or picture has done – it explains why Ms Moner is in the role, as she’s 17, and Dora is about ten years younger: This trailer shows that we’re NOT watching that Dora, we’re watching Dora as she would be when she’s a bit older, and at high school.

So now it makes sense. And as a film, it actually looks entertaining, and funny. And I’m looking forward to it!

You can also see my vlog below when I first heard about this film, and how ridiculous it all sounded.

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Hit!

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is – as the trailer tells us, is Quentin Tarantino‘s 9th film… since he likes to count them.

It double-teams Leonardo DiCaprio with Brad Pitt as faded TV actor and his stunt double, Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth, respectively, striving to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.

As the trailer played out, I wondered quite what year it was, as there were ’60s elements, with some ’70s fashion and styling, so that year sits just about right.

Now, it DOES look good, but then Tarantino’s films have gone down the pan over the years, his last two – Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight – were, each, an overlong mess.

It’s also the final film from the late Luke Perry, who died earlier this month.

Also stars: Margot Robbie, Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Tim Roth, Emile Hirsch, Damian Lewis, Damon Herriman, Kurt Russell, Margaret Qualley, Samantha Robinson, James Marsden, Scoot McNairy, Rumer Willis, Leslie Bega, Lorenza Izzo, James Remar, Michael Madsen, Zoë Bell, Lena Dunham, Bruce Dern, Clu Gulager, Clifton Collins Jr, Harley Quinn Smith, Brenda Vaccaro, Rebecca Rittenhouse

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Maybe!

Light Of My Life is a parent and child journey through the outskirts of society a decade after a pandemic has wiped out half the world’s population. As a father struggles to protect his child, their bond, and the character of humanity, is tested.

However, this supposed father/son-bonding film looks dull as ditchwater.

Writer/Director: Casey Affleck
Stars: Anna Pniowsky, Casey Affleck, Tom Bower, Elisabeth Moss

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Miss!

UglyDolls shows the Hollywood well of ideas is forever dry yet again, as this time it plunders the concerpt of turning plush toys into a movie.

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Miss!

Good Boys centres around three sixth grade boys, who ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for their first kissing party.

However, it becomes clear that this is a ‘comedy’ where the hook is kids swearing a lot. Wow, how original(!) It sounds terrible.

It also comes from the same people who made Sausage Party. That WAS terrible!

Director: Gene Stupnitsky
Screenplay: Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky
Stars: Jacob Tremblay, Molly Gordon, Lil Rel Howery, Millie Davis, Chance Hurstfield, Enid-Raye Adams, Midori Francis

Hit or Miss? Verdict: Miss!
