Toy Story 4
Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and the rest of Pixar’s animated toys are back in Toy Story 4, and though their return engagement may not be wholly necessary – considering 2011’s ideal franchise-capping Toy Story 3 – it proves a charming, funny and deceptively weighty saga about independence, purpose and loyalty to both loved ones and, just as importantly, to one’s self.new hollywood movies 2019
Now the property of kindergarten-bound Bonnie, who’s disinterested in playing with him, Woody finds meaning in life by protecting her newest plaything: Forky (Tony Hale), a makeshift weirdo crafted from trash. Their ensuing road-trip odyssey leads Woody to Bo Peep (Annie Potts), now enjoying her freedom as a “lost toy.” Director Josh Cooley and writers Andrew Stanton and Stephany Folsom pepper their material with the usual barrage of sharp jokes, and the voice cast – including Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as a conjoined bunny and duck – is, as always, top-notch. Plus, it has Keanu Reeves stealing every scene he’s in as Duke Caboom, the greatest Canadian motorcycle daredevil to ever grace the silver screen.

Her Smell new hollywood movies 2019
Elisabeth Moss gets her riot-grrrl on in Her Smell, delivering a tour-de-force performance of rampant egomania and self-destruction that galvanizes Alex Ross Perry’s film. A mid-‘90s Courtney Love type who resides in the center of a tornado of her own making, Moss’ Becky Something leaves only chaos in her wake, much to the chagrin of her bandmates (Agyness Deyn and Gayle Rankin), ex (Dan Stevens), young daughter (Daisy Pugh-Weiss), mother (Virginia Madsen), collaborators/rivals (including Amber Heard and Cara Delevingne) and heroically loyal manager (Eric Stoltz). new hollywood movies 2019
Split into five chapters that are interlaced with flashback home videos of happier early times, Perry’s tale traces Becky’s journey from apocalyptic drugged-out collapse to cautious resurrection, his handheld camera exactingly attuned to his protagonist’s scattershot headspace. There’s a vicarious thrill to watching this rocker spiral into the abyss, and then pull herself back out. While Moss doesn’t hold back in depicting Becky’s ugliness, she taps into the underlying hurt and vulnerability fueling her firestorm heart, peaking with a heart-rending single-take piano rendition of Bryan Adams’ “Heaven.” new hollywood movies 2019
American Factory new hollywood movies 2019
The rapidly changing global manufacturing landscape is examined through the lens of an Ohio auto-glass plant founded by the Chinese and staffed with men and women from both countries in American Factory. The first release to emerge from the Obamas’ production deal with Netflix, Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar’s eye-opening documentary begins on a high, as American and Chinese workers show equal enthusiasm for the new venture, which promises to bring opportunity (and, hopefully, prosperity) to a community hit hard by a prior GM plant’s closing.

Various culture-clash issues, however, soon complicate the endeavor’s chances for success, leading to tensions on both sides and, ultimately, a battle over workers’ desire to unionize, which is opposed by their foreign-born bosses. Plumbing American and Chinese expectations and attitudes regarding labor, as well as the compatibility of the two countries’ ways of doing things, it’s an intimate on-the-ground snapshot of 21st-century globalization in practice.
SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME
Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is still reeling after the massive showdown in ‘Avengers: Endgame’, which claimed the life of his mentor, Tony Stark. It’s only natural that he chooses to take a break from apocalyptic threats, and that comes in the form of an overseas school trip, along with his mates. Although, he’s a bonafide Avenger now, which means he has great responsibilities that he can’t escape, no matter where is. Peril soon catches up to him when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) shows up and gives him his next big mission. But is Peter up to the task?
One of the biggest tasks the film must tackle is picking up after the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) world-altering ‘Endgame’. It does this by taking us into Peter’s head, and the frame of mind Spider-Man is in. It makes a compelling angle; Peter is struggling with who he is – a school going teenager who really likes his classmate MJ (Zendaya), and who he is meant to become – Tony Stark’s successor. The plot is mostly built around this problem, and Tom Holland brings a lot of nuance and depth to both angles. Peter’s affable demeanour is now well-established, but Holland also makes this Spider-Man a more significant force to be reckoned with, and that’s saying something.

The film’s plot also has to juggle between a high-school romantic comedy tonality and the guns-blazing action spectacle that audiences have come to expect from an MCU film by now. While this can get occasionally tedious – some jokes feel a little forced and could have easily been left out – it’s engrossing under Jon Watts’ direction. Chalk it up to the performances, especially with Jake Gyllenhaal’s take on Quentin Beck a.k.a. Mysterio. The character is entirely unpredictable, made more intriguing by Gyllenhaal’s performance. The action set pieces are surprisingly innovative, especially in the second half of the film. As a result, ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ is a lot of fun but more importantly, the film is also a satisfying continuation and way forward for the MCU, as Tom Holland proves he’s more than capable of carrying an Avengers’ film on his young shoulders.new hollywood movies 2019
FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY new hollywood movies 2019
“Wrestling is like soap opera in Spandex.” This and many such quirky lines are a part of this film’s narrative based on a die-hard wrestler family from Norwich, England. The film opens and ends with wrestling, but you don’t have to be a fan to enjoy it. That’s because director Stephen Merchant never lets the sport take over the film’s emotional fabric.
Bound by strong performances, ‘Fighting with my Family’ is full of endearing moments between a family that eats together, fights together and lives together. Leading the pack is the film’s protagonist Florence Pugh, who plays the feisty Paige. Whether it’s the hardcore wrestling scenes or the emotional exchanges with her sibling, Pugh doesn’t miss a beat. She looks strong and vulnerable at the same time. Ditto for Jack Lowden, who lives the character of Zak with all honesty, reflecting his internal conflict and pain. But it is Vince Vaughn’s understated portrayal of coach Hutch Morgan that shines the brightest. Even the special appearance by ‘The Rock’, is well utilized with a quite an impactful entry scene. He gets some cool lines that enhance his larger than life screen presence. Rest of the cast performs well.
While there are clichés like the training montages, the sibling conflicts that get resolved conveniently and the underdog angle, there are also nuanced differentiators. For example, the former models competing with Paige are not stereotyped as dumb blondes. In fact, their roles are sensitively written and the confrontation scenes between the girls are amusing, inside and outside the wrestling ring. Film’s pace gets a bit sluggish in parts, but the oddball family dynamics come to the rescue. There is a constant flow of organic humour, seamlessly written into the characters.new hollywood movies 2019

For a film on wrestlers, there aren’t too many actual fight scenes, but as an entertainer, it delivers a knockout punch and wrestles its way to your heart.
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD
Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), along with his Night Fury alpha dragon Toothless, have created a safe haven for rescued dragons. This leads to overpopulation in Berk, so all its inhabitants need to find a bigger and safer place to live. Meanwhile, Toothless is instantly enamoured by the discovery of a female Light Fury which could complicate Hiccup’s search for the mythical ‘Hidden World’.
With two strong entries prior to it, ‘The Hidden World’ could have easily suffered from the ‘trilogy curse’ by botching up its finale. Fortunately, that’s not the case. From the first few frames, it becomes evident that DreamWorks Animation has pushed the envelope with graphics that are astounding. The beautifully rendered vistas and fluid close-quarter action work seamlessly with each other, making the film an immensely gratifying experience in 3D. But the visuals wouldn’t be complete without a compelling storyline. Writer-director Dean DeBlois displays his in-depth understanding of this world and its characters in his third outing at the helm. He takes the tale of Hiccup, Toothless, and their friends to its natural progression, while still managing to keep the storyline fresh, if not entirely unpredictable.
It also helps that the voice cast is now extremely comfortable with their characters. This shows in some of the filler humour that could be awkward in other circumstances, especially with Valka (Cate Blanchett), but ends up being amusing enough. America Ferrera as Astrid, Jonah Hill as Snoutlout, Kristen Wiig as Ruffnut, and Craig Fergusson as Gobber – all get their moments to shine, though it’s only natural that Jay Baruchel stands out as Hiccup. The weakest character comes in the form of the villain Grimmel (F. Murray Abraham), who is yet another dragon trapper with a bone to pick. Nevertheless, the character arcs of Hiccup, and his search for the Hidden World combined with Toothless, who comes into his own as the alpha dragon, drive a strong emotional connect that pays off in the end. This saga began with their relationship, so it’s only fitting that it should conclude with them. ‘How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ is a visually stunning and emotionally satisfying conclusion to a surprisingly well-rounded ‘vikings & dragons’ trilogy that will appeal to various age groups for different reasons.
THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART new hollywood movies 2019
Years have passed since Emmet (Chris Pratt) and his friends, Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett), Unikitty (Alison Brie), Metalbeard (Nick Offerman), and Benny (Charlie Day) saved the town of Bricksburg. Since then, mysterious beings from another universe have attacked the city and reduced it to ruins. If that wasn’t bad enough, Emmet’s friends are abducted by alien invaders, and he needs to find ways to defeat these new threats, restore peace and harmony to Bricksburg, and generally ensure that ‘everything is awesome’ once again.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote and directed the first LEGO Movie, are back in their writing roles in this sequel. While they’ve handed over directorial duties to Mike Mitchell this time around, they are well aware of what worked for its prequel. ‘The LEGO Movie’ was funny, creative and heart-warming; this second part is no different. It’s a much bigger challenge to pen a compelling story especially since the reveal was made at the end of the previous film. Yet, their new premise builds on that while being fresh and heartfelt all at once. They are far more confident in this universe’s tonality, even crossing over to the real world and back to great effect while appealing to different age-groups.
The voice cast also quickly finds their groove again. Chris Pratt leads the charming charge by working on not one but two characters. Will Arnett and Elizabeth Banks get ample moments to take centre stage, and deliver consistently. New additions Tiffany Haddish as Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi, and Stephanie Beatriz as General Mayhem fit right into the mix. The inclusion of the new characters and the different perspectives they bring are indicators that this universe can keep throwing surprises while staying true to its quirky tone and kaleidoscopic visuals. Granted, it’s hard to shake off the feeling that the freshness of the original can never be matched, and even though the plot is seemingly straightforward – Emmett must save this world once more – ‘The LEGO Movie 2’ manages to be ‘awesome’ by turning some genre expectations into new opportunities. The makers continue to retain this world’s unique sense of self-aware humour and graphic style in this sequel, proving that the franchise is here to stay.
