“WHY NOW, COULD BE THE TIME FOR A ‘CONEHEADS 2’!”

To this day ‘CONEHEADS’ is one of my most favorite SNL sketches turned Movie out of the several that we have had. (‘Night at The Ruxberry’ being another absolute fav)

I cant recall if any actual talks of a sequel have ever happened. But Now would be a great opprotunity for Dan Aykroyd and Co. To take advantage. 

“How would a ConeHeads 2 go?” You ask.. HERE’S HOW!

Beldar (Aykroyd) and Family are flourishing. Things have been going great. But, In this new day and age Beldar finds himself still struggling to fit in with Earth and its modern times. Add his new found role as a Grandfather to his millennial Grandkids, things get tougher. 
Start the film in 2016, right at the offset of the presidential election.. Beldar votes for Trump (que puns and jokes there) and boom..

Trump is elected and immigration is of course his first agenda. 

I would have Alec Baldwin play Trump in this, because, lets face it.. He’s awesome!

And it would be hilarious. Someone Trump hires finds out that Beldar and his family are not legal immagrints and that their records were falsified back in ’93. Also include that the Emporor of the coneheads discovers that Beldar deceived them and a full scale invasion ensues. 

The rest writes itself. With the current political and social climate of today. A Coneheads 2 could take on those issues in a clever and hilarious way. It doesnt have to be preachy or anything.. But it could lighten things up a bit! Poke a little fun at america at its current state.

With Chris Farley long gone. (Sadley) 

I would cast Josh Gad 

As the husband to Connie Conehead. 

Bring back a lot of the original cast. Including Sinbad and David Spade, and keep the budget to a 10 to 15 million.. Heck! It can go straight to Netflix if they want to. That would be just as cool. And they could have a massive comedy hit!

Anywho.. Thats just my thoughts on the matter.. 

HEY! Mr. Aykroyd.. Get started on this PLEASE!! 

Until Next time folks.. Peace Out!

WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEW: Disney’s “BEAUTY And The BEAST”

Greetings Ladies and Gentelnerds, and welcome to another addition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS”

todays movie?.. (do you have to ask?)

“Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST”

 https://youtu.be/e3Nl_TCQXuw

THE STORY: Boy meets witch, acts like a dick and gets turned into a Beast, Girl’s dad does stupid shit and gets imprisoned by Beast, Girl takes dad’s place as prisoner, Girl gets Stockholm syndrom and falls for Beast, Beast learns what it means not to be a dick, They Fall In Love and.. Then he turns into a good looking dude and gets the girl.. “Tale as old as time” Really i debated on how i was going to do this review.. Is anything a spoiler? The story itself is like.. Hundreds of years old. The Animated Movie is like 20+ years old. Who the hell hasnt seen Beauty and The Beast?! 

Whatever..
The story is great. Its not exactly a shot for shot, song for song remake of the original. But its really good. I enjoyed all the old stuff and really liked the additions to the story. I was hooked the moment the opening theme played. I liked the actual visualization of the ‘Enchantress’ and the curse she put on the prince. The special effects were great. The musical numbers really cool. Really, a great movie. Disney does it again.

THE CAST: Talent across the board. Great performances by those who were there. Great vocal performances by the non existent actors. The guy who played The Beast was cool. 

Emma Watson…

Once i think i cant love her anymore then i already do.. She goes and gives me more to love. She can sing and she sings wonderfully. People should compare her to the original voice actress because that woman was a proffesional! Emma clearly has the pipes. But its not what she does. And what she does here was gokd enough for me. Emma was freaking awesome, and is honestly one of the only reasons i decided to watch this damn movie. Other then the curiosity/nostalgia factor. 

THE POSITIVES: Emma Watson.

THE NEGATIVES:

Just joking. But Emma Watson was awesome! 

Great acting. The CGI characters were cool. The music was on point. They really brought the movie to life beautifully. The ending was a bit of a surprise. I will not spoil anything.. But they changed the ending from the animated version. A drastic change, but not a bad change. It worked.

THE NEGATIVES: The Beast…

Was not terrible. The visual effects to create him was good.. Just.. I wouldnt have been mad if they used some practicle effects. He wasn’t very impressive for me. I understand the need to try and make this..

Look as real as possible.. But i think they could have done a mix of practicle and digital effects. Uhm.. Could have used more action in the final act. I remembered a more physical altercation between Beast and Gaston ( I could be mistaken) or at least they could have been more physical at that part. Oh! The “BE OUR GUEST” song.. Not a knock on Ewan Mcgregor’s singing voice.. But that rendition sucks compared to the animated film. I did not like it. The presentation was great, but lacked in the vocal department.

OVERALL: Yet another great addition to Disney’s live action remakes. They keep getting better and better. Leaves me with high hopes for their future remakes. Mostly Jon Favuro’s “LION KING” remake. I give “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST” a score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 6/10. Very Enjoyable, worth checking out! 

Thx for reading folks. Have you seen Beauty and The Beast yet? What are your thoughts? Comment below, leave a like and please follow the blog. 

Until next time folks.. Peace Out!

“FIRST CLEAR LOOK AT ‘DISNEY’S: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST’ Via EW”

Next years most anticipated Disney live action reimagining of thier animated classic, BEAUTY and THE BEAST. Is generating a lot of buzz. Thanks in part to the past live action outings Disney has made. The cast of Actors is top notch. And just the other day ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, dropped (Is it next months issue?.. Ah whatever) They dropped their latest look in to the film.. Lets take a look..

(Ah-Ha! It says November on top.. So its this months issue.) The cover gives us our first real look at Beast and Belle together in the famous Ball Room scene. Yellow Gown and all. Beast looks pretty darn cool, and Emma Watson’s Belle is beautiful. 

Another closer look at Beast and Belle. A clearer shot of Beasts look.

Belle doing her chores, just like in the animated version.

Luke Evens and Josh Gad as Gaston and Lafue. 

A shot of Gaston, most likely during the song and dance scene, ‘No Guy Like Gaston’

Probably my favorite pic. Our first real look at Lumier, Cogsworth, The Teapot and the Feather Duster. Nicely done.

Im actually looking forward to this movie. What do you folks think? Let me know, leave a comment. Follow/Subscribe and all that good stuff. 

So, until next time folks.. Peace Out!
