Ingrid Goes West

Fuck-ups Month rages on with a film I’ve watched perhaps a dozen times – and two of those times was this weekend.

An unhinged social media stalker moves to LA and insinuates herself into the life of an Instagram star.

Aubrey PlazaElizabeth OlsenO’Shea Jackson Jr.

*Minor spoilers/TW: suicide attempts*

Ingrid (Plaza) finds herself in a mental institution following an incident in which she attacks a bride on her wedding day. Our pro/antagonist, you see has a bit of a stalking history and it all comes to a head when she’s left out of her new friend’s marital festivities.

After finishing her therapy, Ingrid returns to an empty family home where she’s been caring for her mother. Mum has recently passed away after what looks like a long illness, which might form a lot of Ingrid’s emotional issues.

Ingrid is a lone wolf with no friends and no other visible family. She finds her comfort on Instagram and perhaps this is why I identify with her so hard. She constantly scrolls through her feed, liking posts left, right and center. One evening she reads a magazine article about social media darling, Taylor Sloane (Olsen). After a healthy stalk of her feed – and a reciprocated comment – Ingrid decides to move to sunny California.

Mum’s passing has afforded her a healthy inheritance and she doesn’t have anything else to stick around for so it’s a no-brainer.

On arrival, she finds her own place, courtesy of new landlord, Dan Pinto (Jackson), a Batman-obsessed screenwriter – and sets about meeting Miss Sloane. Which seems easier that expected, though when their first encounter is less than satisfactory, Ingrid is forced to engineer a proper encounter.

Ingrid’s plan works and she quickly becomes a fixture in Taylor’s life. Taylor lives with boyfriend Ezra (Wyatt Russell), a struggling artist unwilling to promote his work. It’s unclear what Taylor really does but she calls herself a photographer and has designs on a vacant house next to the couple’s holiday home in Joshua Tree. She plans to turn it into a hotel-cum-store selling all her favourite things.

Things are great (and photogenic as hell) between the new friends until Taylor’s deadbeat brother Nicky (Billy Magnussen) shows up and Taylor visibly cools. Ingrid’s attempts to keep the home fires burning don’t really work, even when she brings fake boyfriend Dan into the mix. Once again she’s forced to take drastic measures.

Nicky really has it in for Ingrid and when he hacks her phone, he realises just how #obsessed she is with Taylor. Which leads to a shoddy blackmail campaign that backfires spectacularly. Will Ingrid lose everything she currently holds dear?

IGW has a lot to say about fakery and the personas we choose to share with the world. While Ingrid hides her fucked up-ness from her new friends, Taylor has also built an empire on an image of who she thinks people want to see. She’s so different to the person Ezra fell in love with that he hardly recognises her and all her favourite things are his favourite things.

It’s very bleak. Taylor is extremely fickle and has qualities I’ve seen in friends in the past. When Nicky starts hanging out with blogger Harley Chung (Pom Klementieff), Taylor already knows she has ‘over a million followers on Instagram’ and is quick to ditch Ingrid for a new crowd. It makes me feel quite sick.

I’m also not always crazy about morality tales (you know what I mean, Black Mirror: phones are bad-type messaging) so I was quite happy that Ingrid doesn’t really change at the end. After a serious personal incident, Ingrid wakes up and immediately asks for her phone. And she’s delighted to learn that her actions have gone viral.

We explore some very harsh themes and I feel for her but Ingrid is not particularly likable and neither is Taylor. Honestly, the only character I really have time for is Dan Pinto, who brings a certain calm to proceedings.

Both lead actresses are amazing though and play their parts to perfection, particularly Olsen. I love the way her character narrates her social media posts while Ingrid is stalking her. It really drives home how vacuous and foolish we can sound, God knows I’m guilty of that.

Another day, another avocado toast. *Prayer hands emoji*

I appreciate the concept of loneliness so much and maybe that’s why this speaks to me. As a teenager I was crippled with awkwardness and didn’t feel as though I had many friends. If I’d had a window into other people’s lives back then who knows what would have become of me – I may have been one click away from becoming Ingrid myself.

Shit, maybe phones are bad.

Double Bill: Godzilla: King of the Monsters & Late Night

A couple of movies I’ve seen recently, in bite-sized chunks. One gargantuan monster, one late night talk show host. I think the question we’re all now asking ourselves is: who would win in a fight between these two leads? My money’s on Emma Thompson.

*Minor spoilers*


The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah.

Kyle ChandlerVera FarmigaMillie Bobby Brown

Long live the King.

Mark (Chandler) and Dr. Emma Russell (Farmiga) are still mourning the loss of their son, who was killed by the big guy in the first film. Daughter Madison (Bobby Brown) is with Mum, while Dad is estranged from the pair of them.

Biologist Emma is on a top secret project surrounding the Titans – giant creatures that once ruled the Earth – and works for crypto-zoological organisation Monarch. While on location, Emma and Madison witness the birth of Mothra, a mahoosive larva.

Mothra isn’t best pleased with whatever Monarch has got going on and goes ape (LOL). Emma is able to calm her down with the help of “Orca”, a sound device that can attract or alter Titan’s moods. It’s a bit science-y but it’s something to do with sound frequency. Believe me it doesn’t really matter.

All we really need to know is that Emma has a warped sense of what’s right and takes it upon herself to unleash “Monster Zero”, for the greater good of humanity. Zero is an ancient three-headed dragon who starts as he means to go on, by having a ruck with Godzilla, who’s been kicking around somewhere since 2014. Mothra, meanwhile, hatches and reveals herself to be a heavenly giant moth who forms a quick connection with GZ. There are other monsters and a lot of action and that’s really about it.

The question is: Is Godzilla the bad guy the world has made him out to be or is he actually keeping the world safer from even worse foes?

I don’t really know what else to say about this one. We’re only really here for the monster action – and we get plenty of that. King of the Monsters seems to have learned from the slightly off pacing of Godzilla (2014), which takes a while to warm up. I’m glad but it does also do a lot of talking and the story line is flimsy at best (and yes, I know we’re suspending a lot of disbelief already).

The performances are fine, particularly Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins – and it’s nice to see more of Eleven but we know why we paid for the ticket – and I wasn’t disappointed in that. I can’t wait to watch GZ square up to my main man, Kong now.

A late-night talk-show host suspects that she may soon lose her long-running show.

Emma ThompsonMindy KalingJohn Lithgow

They’re giving comedy a rewrite.

Legendary talk show host Katherine Newbury (Thompson) is about to lose her late night show to a young, male and upcoming stand-up comedian (Ike Barinholtz). Ratings have slipped, the act has gone stale and Katherine is accused of hating women – her all-male, all-white writing team don’t help this argument. This prompts her to examine equality (and diversity) in the workplace.

Step in Molly Patel (Kaling).

Molly is an amateur stand up herself and uses her platform at the chemical plant she works to try out new material. When she gets the writing job on Katherine’s show, she joins a team who aren’t thrilled to have her. Slowly but surely though she shakes things up – in and out of the writer’s room – but will the group, and their formidable front woman, do enough to save the show?

You’re a writer, so write. ~ Burditt

There might not be many surprises here but I really liked it. The writing is solid and I laughed a lot. Both leads are gorgeous and I enjoyed their chemistry together. Molly teaches Katherine to be more honest with her viewers (and herself), while Katherine is forced to face the consequences of her actions when an old secret is revealed. Support from John Lithgow as Katherine’s long-suffering husband Walter is really touching – he might be a rich, white man but he adds some real heart to proceedings.

I like films that tackle sexism and white privilege, and this takes a swipe at it in a light, fun way. Maybe it could have gone deeper but its made me interested in what Kaling writes next. I also have to say how good it is to see her on the big screen – she is so lovely and I’m into plus-size WOC leading all my movies from now on. (See Ma).

Behind Again

I’m still reviewing Halloween movies here firmly in December and that’s because I’ve been busy and lazy, a wonderful combination. So I’m going to have to squish some of my To Do list into one post, which I kind of hate but what can you do?

Here’s what I’ve been watching since the end of October:

Halloween

I waited for what feels like forever for this 40th anniversary sequel and… I can’t say I was disappointed. A lot of it doesn’t work, some of it spectacularly (looking at you fake Doctor Loomis/terrible podcasters) but all in all David Gordon Green‘s offering is a lot of fun and that’s what I wanted.

Jamie Lee is dope as the deeply affected, original Final Girl™ Laurie Strode. A lifetime of paranoia has made her into a reclusive survivalist and she is barely holding onto her family as a result. But what happens when all that preparation finally comes to fruition? Well, you’ll find out when Michael Myers busts out of the institution that has held him for the last four decades – and the whole thing is as gory and tense as you’d imagine. Plus, there’s something truly disconcerting about the humanisation of The Shape just before shit kicks off.

My Rating

4.5/5. Probably for nostalgia more than anything.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

In my opinion this movie suffers for not featuring enough Jack Black but IT’s Jeremy Ray Taylor does a fine job as a mini version of the man himself. If I’m honest, I don’t remember too much about the plot (I think because I saw The House with a Clock in its Walls right before it and they’ve sort of blended into one) but I did enjoy its childlike Halloween wonder.

The effects are very good – plenty of inventive monsters and sadistic gummy bears – the kids are fantastic and Slappy is a dollop of mischievous fun. I think I’ll always be here for the Goosebumps movies honestly, they’re charming. I’ll definitely be hitting this up with a re-watch as soon as possible.

My Rating

3.5/5. Witches be crazy.

The Hate U Give

Based on the YA novel by Angie Thomas which I have half read, THUG is a pretty solid adaptation, if a little heavy-handed in its delivery. Starring the ridiculously talented Amandla Stenberg as our main protagonist Starr and the ridiculously cool Regina Hall as Starr’s ferocious mother Lisa, this movie examines subject matter that is all too relevant. I enjoyed the ride and also cried like a baby throughout.

While I could never understand what Starr and her family and community have to deal with, I was pumping the air with triumph as Starr stood up for herself and her lost friends in the most dramatic, tense scenes imaginable. Not only does this movie look at the horror of racism and police brutality, it also hones in on the insidiousness of subconscious prejudice, particularly within Starr’s own friendship group. Russell Hornsby is fantastic too as Starr’s wise old ex-gang member father.

My Rating

4/5. Powerful stuff.

Slaughterhouse Rulez

Meh. This, sadly, was a steaming pile of nothingness and given the cast, I’m surprised. It’s just not that memorable, funny or endearing – and takes an age to get going. When it does there are a couple of okay moments but there’s not enough to make it worth the effort. Sorry, Nick Frost, I still love you.

My Rating

2.5/5. A real stinker.

Widows

My takeaway from this is that Viola Davis should be cast in every film from now on. Literally every single one. As freshly widowed Veronica, she is mesmerising – the perfect blend of vulnerability and strength – I couldn’t keep my eyes off her. She is matched perfectly though by Elizabeth Debicki as Alice, who steals scenes left and right, even from the Queen herself.

I enjoyed this film very much, it follows the lives of a handful of women left devastated by the death of their husbands, a band of bank robbers. But as with most crime capers, there are twists at every turn and danger lurking in every shadow, not least the terrifying Manning Brothers, Jatemme and Jamal (played, respectively, by two of my favourite actors, Daniel Kaluuya and Brian Tyree Henry).

My Rating

4/5. Girl power at its finest.

The Happytime Murders

The Happytime Murders (2018)

If I’m perfectly honest the real star of this movie is Bubbles’ (Maya Rudolph) wardrobe. Sis can really dress. The rest of it is… not brilliant. The jokes don’t often land, it’s gross for the sake of being gross and shocking – and it just doesn’t have the heart it thinks it does. That said, I didn’t hate it and I get what they were trying for.

Phil Philips (Bill Barretta) is a disgraced LAPD officer turned private dick. Living in a puppet/human where puppets are washed up and mostly disregarded by society, he’s doing what he can to stay afloat. When a series of murders are committed on puppets, it soon becomes clear that there’s something fishy going on.

Phil himself is present at the first hit where he has the misfortune of bumping into his ex-partner, Detective Connie Edwards (Melissa McCarthy). This brings up lots of old memories about the fateful day that ended his career – and ultimately their partnership. But there’s a murderer at large who seems to be knocking off a very specific list of puppets, including Phil’s actor brother – can our frenemies work together once more to get to the bottom of the case?


Meanwhile, Phil has an even more personal investment in the case because of his former lover Jenny (Elizabeth Banks), the only human on the list of potential victims. Will he be able to protect her?

There are some scenarios that I didn’t hate and some jokes did make me laugh but they aren’t consistent and if I’m honest, it’s mostly forgettable. McCarthy is always my favourite in everything but this doesn’t showcase her talent too well. I feel a little bit torn by all the sex jokes, like they don’t work here but could they have if the rating had been higher and Director Brian Henson (Jim Henson‘s son) had gone all out? Here they feel out-of-place and clunky – and cheap.

I was a fan of Rudolph’s Bubbles though and it wasn’t quite as bad as all the reviews would have me believe. Which really isn’t saying much.

My Rating

2.5/5.

The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018)

I loved this stupid film. I’m in love with Mila Kunis, sue me. Pair her with Kate McKinnon and as far as I’m concerned you’re onto a winner. It’s a very silly romp sure but a very good, girl power one.

When Audrey gets dumped over text by her elusive boyfriend Drew (Justin Theroux), her BFF Morgan is on hand to help her through it. After attempting to burn his stuff, he gets in touch and tells her he’ll be home soon to explain everything. Unfortunately, before this happens she is accosted by the feds who reveal his true identity.

Audrey is shocked to learn that her boyfriend is actually a spy. Well, I’ve been out with much worse tbf. When Drew finally makes contact again, he gives her instruction to travel to Europe with a secret package which Morgan encourages her do because why not? Neither of them have ever been. And the rest is a blur of spy activity which the girls quickly discover they’re actually pretty good at.

But who are the good guys, who are the bad guys – and who the hell is Drew really? Via a backdrop of glamorous European locations and elaborate disguises, our girls get to the bottom of just what the fuck is going down – which they find is easier said than done.

Hot on their heels is nimble super assassin Nadedja (Ivanna Sakhno) and the feds themselves, led by their boss Wendy (Gillian Anderson). There might be a new love interest in the mix too in the form of pretty Sebastian (Sam Heughan), one of the agents on Drew’s case.

Well it’s a romp alright and I laughed my arse off. McKinnon is always good but sometimes suffers for the material she’s given while Kunis has tremendous comic timing. Together I totally bought their chemistry as best friends – and I found it refreshing that there’s no side story in which the two of them fall out. Their friendship remains intact to the end.

I hope they turn this into a franchise because I haven’t had this much fun with female spies since well, Spy. But also Charlie’s Angels.

My Rating

4.5/5.

BlacKkKlansman

BlacKkKlansman (2018)

IMDB Synopsis

Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan with the help of a white surrogate, who eventually becomes head of the local branch.

*Minor spoilers*

There’s a lot to say about this movie and yet I don’t think I’m going to go all in. I enjoyed it very much and found it very moving in places. It also made me laugh, shake my head, feel disgusted – basically most of the emotions you would associate with a Spike Lee movie.

The narrative focuses on Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), a black cop who, with the help of his team, manages to infiltrate the KKK. While he charms a number of organisation members over the telephone, he has an obvious issue when it comes to meeting them face-to-face. Enter Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) then, Ron’s Jewish (and white) body double.

Will Flip be able to keep his end up in person, while Ron cons KKK founder David Duke (Topher Grace) over the phone? And will he come to realise, as Ron warns him, that he has more stake in the game than he knows?

Given the pressure being piled on him by tightly wound Klansman Felix (Jasper Pääkkönen), who knows?

Meanwhile, Ron tries to romance the lovely activist Patrice (Laura Harrier) who doesn’t know who he really is, which is a bad scene given that she hates pigs. Having experienced more than her fair share of police brutality, she kind of has a point – can he persuade her that he’s one of the good guys, changing the system from the inside?

BKKK is very much a Spike Lee movie with some very clear Lee signatures. It pays homage in tone to some of the great blaxploitation movies and blends dark humour with even darker imagery. The final scenes splice truly frightening KKK rhetoric with real life terrorist footage – and it’s a hard pill to swallow. As it fucking should be.

Denzel‘s boy John is remarkable as Ron while Adam Driver is as dreamy as ever. He’s so tall I would like to climb him like my favourite childhood tree. Which might be missing the point a little. One of my favourite scenes is the one in which Flip muses how little he’s cared about his own heritage up until this point.

I also have to say that Pääkkönen, as the truly frightening Felix is a stand-out for me. He’s repugnant obviously but is played to perfection, a ticking time bomb of a character, hell bent on exposing Flip as Jewish and a cop to boot, something no other member of the Klan believes.

My Rating

4/5.

The Festival

The Festival (2018)

IMDB Synopsis

After Nick’s girlfriend dumps him, his best mate Shane has the perfect antidote to his break-up blues: three days at an epic music festival.

*Minor spoilers*

When Nick (Joe Thomas) gets dumped at graduation by his university girlfriend Caitlin (Hannah Tointon), he’s devastated. Luckily for him though, a good friend will never let you stay down for long – and Nick has Shane (the amazing Hammed Animashaun).

Shane insists that the pair head to the festival they both have tickets for, even if Caitlin and her posh friends will be there. He’s all about helping his friend over his heartbreak but he also has his own agenda – to see and hopefully meet his hero, DJ Hammerhead.

But things are never as easy as you want them to be and after meeting festival veteran Amy (Claudia O’Doherty) on the train, the trio are forced to make the rest of their journey by foot. Much to Nick’s disdain, Amy is a talker.

The festival poses its own set of challenges, not lease avoiding Nick’s ex and her new love interest. But you don’t think everything’s going to according to plan do ya? What follows is a raucous comedy of errors that lead our new friends on an adventure of a lifetime. Or at least a Summertime.

The Festival won’t change the world but it’s not the worst way to spend a couple of hours. It’s pretty standard Inbetweeners-style fare, maybe not as funny but it does have stand-outs in O’Doherty and Animashaun. Also a cameo from Jemaine Clement as Shane’s over-the-top step father, which doesn’t hurt.

As expected it’s quite fixated on bodily-fluids, awkward sex and bestiality so not the most sophisticated of feature films but I’m guessing nobody has bought a ticket expecting anything more (or less).

This isn’t my most detailed review of all time but there’s not really that much more to say. Will Shane get to meet his hero? With Nick get over his ex and by extension himself? If you can be bothered, you’ll see how it all turns out for yourself.

My Rating

3.5/5.

Ocean’s 8

Ocean’s 8 (2018)

IMDB Synopsis

Debbie Ocean gathers an all-female crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala.

Oh YEAH.

A female-ccentric heist movie with all the glamorous trimmings and then some, this movie is a blast from start to finish. And while I was always living for the cast and the fact boys were pissed off about yet another all female-remake, I’m happy that it’s also genuinely a good movie.

Obviously I can’t pick a favourite from the cast because that would be impossible but I can say that each of Debbie Ocean’s crew get enough screen time to make you love them and that is no mean feat. Where Ocean’s 11 and it’s sequels were slick and enjoyable, Ocean’s 8 dials it down a little bit and just focuses on the fabulousness.

oceans-8-cast-women

It is a lot of fun and is stunning to look at with a wardrobe across the board to die for. The chemistry too makes it even better, though some (male) film critics have criticised the lack of it. I do not see their point at all.

The plot is not too taxing and while some of it is a little far-fetched, I don’t think any of us are here for that anyway, so who cares? What we care about is fit women getting one up on ex-boyfriends, ride or die friendship and the fulfillment of destiny, even if that destiny is just to be a really, really good criminal.

I’m in love with all eight women and I’d watch this movie again and again, if only to study the way Cate Blanchett wears her fringe because it is sublime. I also really enjoyed seeing Anne Hathaway in a sassier role, she’s a very sexy lady.

Damn, it every single one of them is hotter than Hell.

Book Club

Book Club (2018)

IMDB Synopsis

Four lifelong friends have their lives forever changed after reading 50 Shades of Grey in their monthly book club.

I’m a sucker for a silver surfer movie and have reviewed a couple already for this blog. If Keaton/Dench/Mirren is in it, take my money and my time, and let me into their world, stat.

Book Club is a more glamorous take on women of a certain age, centered around four golden oldies with varying issues in their personal lives.

Diane (Diane Keaton) is a recent(ish) widow whose children are desperate to move her closer to them, even though she’s perfectly cool doing her own thing. Vivian (Jane Fonda) is the hottest mama in town, enjoying liaisons as and when she fancies without any emotional connection – and that’s perfectly fine, right? 

Sharon (Candice Bergen) is a Supreme Court Judge whose husband has left her for a younger model. And Carol (Mary Steenburgen) is happily married but not enjoying a pro-longed dry spell in the bedroom.

book_club_candice_bergen_mary_steenburgen_jane_fonda_courtes

When our Fantastic Four come together at their regular book club they’re able to come clean to each other about these issues. But when Vivian introduces everybody to Christian Grey, something ignites and each begins a new journey of her own.

Well, there’s a lot to like here. Innuendo is a go-go while the performances are great as expected from such Hollywood royalty. It might be hard at times to relate to the glossiness of their lives – so much luxury! – but it’s also escapism and the fantasy of imaging myself as Diane Keaton when I grow up is no bad thing.

It’s so important to be seeing older women on the big screen too – and while the plot does revolve around their interactions with men – and is very rich and white – I take away that this is an ode of sexuality and owning that.

Support from silver foxes Andy Garcia and Don Johnson is fun too and I’m here for it all.

My Rating

3.5/5.

 

 

Life of the Party

Life of the Party (2018)

Directed by: Ben Falcone
Starring: Debby RyanMelissa McCarthyGillian JacobsLuke Benward

IMDB Synopsis

After her husband abruptly asks for a divorce, a middle-aged mother returns to college in order to complete her degree.

Where: Odeon, Brighton
When: Friday 11th May
Who with: Alone
Snacks: I can’t remember

*Beware spoilers*

Melissa McCarthy is the best human on the planet, isn’t she? I’m quite sure I’m right about that. Even when she stars in films that aren’t the best films, she is always the best thing in those films – and as for the things she has coming up later this year, colour me freakin’ excited.

LotP is really fun and exactly what you’d expect. When Deanna (McCarthy) is unceremoniously dumped by her fuckhead husband for another woman, she is initially devastated. Having given up her dream of college to start a family, it’s no wonder her thoughts eventually turn to what she still needs to do in her life.

maxresdefault

It soon becomes clear to Deanna that she’s destined to return to university to complete the archaeology course she set aside when she got pregnant with Maddy (Molly Gordon). Maddy now attends the same college and is half-thrilled/half-freaked out by the arrival of her mum on campus but once she’s calmed down, it becomes a really great thing. Especially after a small make-over. 

Deanna’s belated rite of passage leads her through a series of adventures, including sex in the library with a hottie, taking on the campus Mean Girls in a dance off, making friends with her agoraphobic goth roommate and getting off her tits with her daughter’s friends – all of which are truly delightful to witness.

life_of_the_party_TLR-1_intl_Thumbnail_02_JPEG_1280x720_020118

But as will all films of this nature, there has to be a lesson learnt here – and Deanna must remember what this is all for in the first place. Will she? Course she fucking will!

Obviously this has a dynamite cast, not only Queen McCarthy but also ace support from Modern Family’s Julie Bowen, the most gorgeous woman on the planet Gillian JacobsMaya Rudolph and Chris Parnell. Even Christina Aguilera makes an appearance and it’s epic. I would also say special shout-outs to super bitchy Jennifer (Debby Ryan) and Heidi Gardner as Deanna’s weird roommate – both bring their A-game to their small but memorable roles. 

_DSC8444.dng

This is the ultimate Sunday afternoon feel-good movie – which doesn’t end the way you might think or want it to (Chris Parnell’s cute professor is surely destined to cop off with his favourite student) and that’s a good thing. This is about second chances and friendship and I’m very much here for all of it.

Melissa, I bloody love you!
