Nic Cage is Good, The Film Primal Isn’t

The movie opens with a very convincing scene. Nicolas Cage who plays Frank Walsh sat in a tree while reading a magazine while waiting for a rare white Jaguar to appear. This opening immediately promises an adventure that is quite interesting. Especially when we are taken to a place that is difficult to escape: the ship. Frank offers seventy-five thousand dollars to bring the ghost cat to Madrid and they wanted it alive. Let’s face it, not all movies are worth watching, even if the stars are pretty interesting.

One of the latest movies that starred Nicolas Cage is the Primal movie. Most movie critics didn’t find it interesting as the movie got so many bad reviews from people who already saw the film. They said that the trailer is pretty much convincing that the movie is going to be one of the best Nicolas Cage movies, but in reality, it is far from that.

 Here are some good and bad viewer’s feedbacks about the Primal movie starring Nicolas Cage:

  • The Film is pretty much generic.
  • The film’s effect, especially for the jaguar was pretty terrible. It looks like a bad cat scene in a movie. It does not completely look believable at all.
  • But there’s a lot of charming element about this film and you cannot even deny when you watch it.
  • Nicholas Cage is absolutely engaging and so good in this film; it’s just the film itself that didn’t give justice to the actor.
  • At the start of the film, Nicolas is not totally a nice guy; he is a bad guy a self-centered individual as he only wants money for his animals.
  • The scenes are pretty much predictable but it is still watchable.
  • Eventually, a movie like this will be a waste of money if you watch it in the cinema. Movies like this are good to watch at home while snacking on chips.
  • Surely, the dialogs are not going to win any award. None of this film is going to win any award.
  • What makes this film watchable is just Nicolas Cage.

Well if this is all also know that if he is the god of the actor who actually is good but subscribed to play in shabby films. It doesn’t matter; any film that has a question doesn’t look good or not relevant. It’s a Nicholas Cage movie. Make no mistake; this actor never won an Oscar, plus a Golden Globe.

“The Gentlemen” Focuses On Drug Wars In Britain

There is a new blockbuster hit from the man who did the live-action remake of Aladdin, Guy Ritchie. It is the heart-stopper, that is, The Gentlemen. It is his first work for 2020, and it is bigger than anything he has ever worked before. The film boasts an amazing cast of actors, starring Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan and Colin Farrell. It is already palpable with its cast that the movie will earn such a great success. It is easily a contender and a favorite.

The story of these gentlemen

The Gentlemen follows an American drug kingpin, played by Matthew McConaughey, who is out for the blood of the new, more ruthless challenger, played by Henry Golding. It narrated through a private detective, played by Hugh Grant, who informs an enforcer Ray, played by Charlie Hunnam. Grant’s character wants to expose McConaughey’s character’s shady business and reach put to Hunnam’s character for assistance. Grant also plans to blackmail everyone and to lay it all out in a screenplay, which he will write. He will call the screenplay “BUSH,” a euphemism for marijuana, which is what McConaughey is known for.

As the story progressed, more and more characters get involved, and more violence ensues. The violent nature of each character leads the movie into several aggressive, albeit mischievous, but very in-your-face turn of events. In classic Guy Ritchie tradition, the film has a fast-paced sequence with breath-taking action scenes. Each scene is done with such electric energy, and every gunfire is like a beat to the next heart-pumping thing. The protagonist is just as villainous and ambitious as the antagonists that there is really no way up.  

Wars between sides

This action-comedy film does not only focus on the characters that amplify the story. It is also focusing on the drug wars that have been happening in Britain. The film depicts the scenarios possibly happening with these hidden organized crimes. The movie might depict the protagonist with such cleverness and the antagonists with such deceptive personalities, but the reality of these gangs being at large is palpable.

The movie is not a reference for what is actually happening in the streets, but it shows the power struggle between gangs and the repercussions that follow their clashes. No matter how witty these characters might appear, it should be taken in with a more in-depth understanding as there is always something underneath the veil. Human lives are at stake.

One movie series where you can see a unique creature that a lot of people are amazed of is Star Wars.

The Highest Movie Budget Of All Time

Films are made with a specific budget. Finances are to be settled well before filming so that the shoot will transition without any problem. However, this is not always the case in Hollywood. Year after year, the production expenses in a film increase as audiences demand better quality, whether it be the special effects, the set, the costumes, all of the above.

The production of a film is the time in which it is created and shot. The set designers and staging crew will design the set. The costume designers will create the attires for all characters and extras. The director, assistant editor, sound editors, script supervisor, and actors will work together toward the completion of the film. The distribution team will oversee the final stages of the film, make the necessary adverts, and schedule the release date at the cinemas. They also organize the launch parties and press releases. All these preparation and production will cost a considerable amount depending on the materials and the people that were involved in the film.

Most expensive film of all time

As filmmakers produce films every year, there is a great chance that a newer, flashier film will outdo the most expensive movie of the current date. However, over the course of time, people also realize the secretive side of accounting a movie budget. Most film producers do not declare the total cost of their films. For the longest time, it was “Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides” that held the record budget of $378.5 million. This is followed by “Avengers: Endgame” at $3.65 million, “Avengers: Infinity War” at $356 million and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” at $316 million. “Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End” and “Justice League” tied in fifth place at $300 million.

Several factors affect inflation in making a film. Film has come a long way from the silent era. The movie budget of that time cannot possibly survive with the demands of the current time. The invention of better cameras, sound equipment, special effects, sets, costumes, has only pushed the envelop for newcomers to raise the bar even higher. This continuation of pushing limits, in turn, makes the demand for better, more expensive equipment in creating a “better” film.

In the ’90s, the bar was even raised further. Two films directed by James Cameron cost $100 million for True Lies, $200 million for Titanic. This has set the bar to production cost for good quality movie all around.  

How Realistic Are The Battle Scenes In “Midway?”

What is the Movie “Midway?”

Midway is a historical movie. It was the event the follows the story of the devastating 1941 attack on the U.S. naval located at Pearl Harbour, Hawaii, by the Japanese forces. After six months, the battle in Midway began due to another impending attack of the Japanese forces in the U.S.

The battle in Midway is the first step of the United States’ campaign to defeat the Japanese forces. This is also their first significant victory in the Pacific area during World War 2. The battle took place on June 4-7, 1942. It was a sea and air battle, which is marked as the first comeback victory of the United States against the Japanese forces.

What about the battle in the movie, are they real?

First of all, the characters in the movie were accurate. Even their faces look a significant resemblance to the real person in the history. Second, the ships, planes, and other things that we can see in the movie are also accurate. Since there were no planes and aircraft carriers used in 1942 that can function well, they had to create everything from scratch to make them as precisely as they were before.

When it comes to battle sequences, the movie’s fact check reveals that it is relatively accurate. However, some details are needed to be sacrificed so that filmmakers could get the shots they wanted for the movie. To do that, they need to change the formations of planes and ships to shoot them together, so they can capture lots of ships and aircraft in one shot. We can see this in the movie on the Midway Atoll as the Japanese execute their attack.

Exaggerated destruction

There were also times in the movie where the destruction was exaggerated. One example of that is the air raid scene conducted by United States on the airbase controlled by the Japanese on Marshall Islands. Another one is when Dauntless blew up more than five Mitsubishi G3Ms, when in real historical account they only blew up one on the ground. Also many of the bombs dropped by the Japanese did not hit their targets. But for the purpose of the movie, they have to exaggerate. They have to make ground hits more than once or all at the same time so they can effectively convey the destruction to the audience.

Therefore the account of the war and the story conveyed by the movie is accurate. However, they have to exaggerate the battle to make it palatable for the eyes of the viewers.
