I know, I know, we’ve still got big summer/autumn blockbusters coming our way, but here are a few movies that definitely deserve a viewing (or two).
3) The Nice Guys
A couple of good/bad guys in search of a missing porn star. What can possibly go wrong? Ryan Gosling has never been funnier in this sleaze & slapstick buddy comedy. Who knew Gosling and Russell Crowe would have such amazing chemistry?
*CAUTION: This trailer is VERY NSFW*
2) The Jungle Book
WOW. If you can watch this movie in 3D, please, for the love of all things holy, DO IT! This movie was an unreal combination of phenomenal digital animation and good old-fashioned story telling. It doesn’t matter your age, you will LOVE this movie. (Director) Jon Favreau – You done good.
It’s a movie role that was made for Ryan Reynolds (literally. It was!). Marvel hits it out of the park with this ADULT action film. From the very first scene, this movie sucks you in and makes you laugh and laugh and L-O-L. Even if you’re not a Marvel comics fan, this movie is a MUST! If you live in Vancouver, try and keep track of how many familiar local places you can spot in this film.
On top of that, it’s been confirmed that (JOY!) Deadpool 2 is in the works. Hey Ryan, it’s time to come back home and film again, m’kay?
*CAUTION: Adult trailer. Many naughty words. NSFW*
On a side note, after years of careful research (and because I consume way more popcorn than any normal person actually should) here’s a list of the best movie theatre popcorn in Vancouver:
3) International Village (AKA: Tinseltown)
2) Fifth Avenue Cinemas
1) Dunbar Theatre
