Ride Along 2 Trailer


These guys give a new meaning to the term brother-in-law. After an eventful case that left James and Ben lucky to be alive, James relaxes his attitude about Ben and finally gives him his blessing to marry his sister Angela. Not only that, but Ben is now officially able to join James in Atlanta's police department having just graduated from the police academy. However, Ben hasn't changed much, and still makes dumb decisions, bringing a lot of embarrassment on to James. He's as jumpy on the trigger as always, with his nerves making him a bumbling but formidable partner, but you can't really blame him this time around when he's got a wedding to plan. If life wasn't stressful enough, the soon to be brothers are forced to team up with Miami PD to uncover a major drugs operation. The only question is, can Ben keep his cool long enough to solve the case? Or will his mistakes screw everything up this time?

Get On Up Trailer


Since he was a child, he knew he'd become a star. He may not have had the easiest life growing up in a poor family and enjoying frequent brushes with the law (something that continued for the rest of his life despite his illustrious career), but he was a pioneer in what he did best. Following his first stint in prison as a teenager, he embarked on a musical career that would create a whole new way of looking at music. His funky rhythms, mind-blowing voice and effortless moves on stage would go on to inspire artists for generations even if his troubled personal life left much to be desired. He even took his soul magic to Vietnam during the 20-year conflict - a venture that demonstrated both his patriotism and his bravery. This is the story of James Brown.

Get On Up Trailer


James Brown didn't have the easiest childhood being born to two young parents who were so poor they could barely afford to live. After just a few years, his mother left him and he was raised by his aunt who, although was equally as financially insecure, resolved to love him as her own. Naturally, given his tough background, James turned to crime as a youth and spent time in a juvenile detention centre following an armed robbery conviction. It was there he took his passion for music seriously and decided to form a gospel band with some fellow inmates. Following his parole, he joined another gospel group and from there spiralled an illustrious career in funk and soul music that took the entire world by storm. Just as he dreamed, he became one of the music industry's most revered stars, but, alas, he also became one of the most troubled.

Ride Along Review


OK

There's a decent premise to this action-comedy, but the filmmakers can't be bothered to put in the effort to actually make it funny or exciting. Instead, they sit back and hope that the fast-talking Kevin Hart holds our interest. Thankfully, he's quite a lot of fun to watch, creating a likeable character out of an utter moron and generating a few good laughs along the way as he bounces off the other characters.

Hart plays Ben, a videogame addict who wants to spin his career as a school guard into a place at the Atlanta Police Academy. His sexy fiancee Angela (Sumpter) has a brother, James (Cube), who's an undercover detective and wants Ben to prove himself worthy of his sister. So he takes Ben on a ride-along, which he and his partners (Leguizamo and Callen) set up as a series of humiliations. Then Ben inadvertently discovers a few clues in their ongoing case to find mythical arms dealer Omar (Fishburne). And what started as a joke becomes rather a lot more explosive.

Yes, the film is packed with the usual fiery explosions and massive car chases punctuated by Hart's non-stop comedy patter. Ben is the standard cocky, annoying idiot who we know will become someone completely different by the end of the movie (see Beverly Hills Cop, Rush Hour, The Heat, et al). But this allows us to engage with Hart from the beginning, and he finds some sharp humour along the way. Cube, on the other hand, never remotely convinces as a hardened cop; we know he's a big softy. And poor Sumpter, virtually the only female on-screen, struggles to add spice to a thankless role that plays out exactly as the formula demands.

Ride Along Trailer


Ben is a high-school security who only wants one thing in his life; to marry his beautiful girlfriend Angela. However, that proves to be less than easy when Angela's tough and intimidating cop brother James has less respect for him than the criminals he pursues. When Ben gets accepted into the police academy, he thinks he has James' blessing in the bag, but James has other ideas; he'll let Ben marry his sister if he proves he's worthy of her by joining him on his next shift in the world of car chases, guns and ruthless fights. Initially confident he'll do well in proving himself, Ben finds it a shock to his system as he has never even held a gun before let alone fired one. 

'Ride Along' is a brilliant action comedy  that's deep down all about love, family and acceptance. Directed by Tim Story ('Fantastic Four', 'Think Like a Man'), the movie has been written by a large collaboration of Greg Coolidge ('Employee of the Month'), Steve Faber and Bob Fisher ('Wedding Crashers', 'We're the Millers'), Phil Hay  and Matt Manfredi ('The Tuxedo', 'Clash of the Titans') and Jason Mantzoukas ('Off Duty'). It is set for release in the US on January 17th 2014.

Sparkle Review


Good

An energetic cast and some terrific music make up for the rather hackneyed plot of this Dreamgirls-style drama. Remade from a 1976 film, the story is that familiar trajectory of musicians who achieve fame only to fall into a string of ugly problems. It's just about watchable, but what makes it notable is that it features Whitney Houston in her last film role.

It's set in 1968 Detroit, where Sister (Ejogo) is determined to become a star. Her singer-songwriter sister Sparkle (Sparks) is the one with real talent, but she's happy to stay in the background with their other sister Dee (Sumpter). As Sister and Her Sisters, they are managed by Stix (Luke), a fast-talking charmer who falls for Sparkle. But the girls' intensely religious mother (Houston) is under no illusions: she has been there, done that and continually warns her daughters that they shouldn't go the same way she did. But of course, they have to live their messy lives themselves.

Since it's such a familiar story, the film has a cheesy, soapy feel to it, playing on the sisters' rebellion against their religious upbringing. Of course, danger is represented in the men they fall for. While good-girl Sparkle tries to keep Stix at arms' length for awhile at least, Sister must choose between two men: the poor but nice Levi (Hardwick) and the flashy but drug-addled Satin (Epps). Since we know that she will choose the wrong guy, we know it's not going to be a happy journey for her. But this trawl through the dark side gives Ejogo a chance to steal the film with a much more emotionally charged performance.
