Looking for the Best POV option for an upcoming client shoot.
Fist Fight is fortunate to be blessed with a well-known cast of good comedic actors., but the main characters are given very little backstory. If you love Ice Cube's portrayal of an angry black man who yells and points when he speaks then this film is for you.
Charlie Day is funny but it takes about an hour for him to transform into the Charlie Kelley that we all love in "It's Always Sunny." Once he gets going; he is hilarious in this film. If you were to tell me the writers wrote Day's role for Kevin Hart, I would believe it. This film is another Ride Along movie that decided to cast Day instead of Hart. The acting down to the hand movements reminded me of every Kevin Hart role.
Just accept the fact you won't be given much reason to care for these characters. You pretty much just wait for something funny to stand out. Unfortunately, every line of the movie is written as a joke. The majority of these raunchy jokes miss their marks due to a lack of breathing room. Whereas, this same type of humor killed in "Office Christmas Party,"
I watched some of the clips online before going to see this film and they were really funny. I'm not sure why when they were all put together they weren't as funny. Nevertheless, if you love over the top continuous raunchy humor you will find this movie very enjoyable. This would be a good movie to watch if you had guests over and planned on drinking. Meaning the movie would make for good background noise.
Fist Fight is not a movie that you need to rush to a theatre to watch, but it is worth a watch.
Now without further ado your two superlative winners for this film...
Superlatives: Most likely to play an angry black man in every film? Ice Cube
Most likely to be used as the white version of Kevin Hart? Charlie Day
Reviewer's Remarks: Should you see this film in theatre? Not unless you love raunchy movies. Should you rent this film? Yes, if you like Ice Cube and Charlie Day.
Should you expect to laugh non-stop? No, but it does have its moments. Final Grade: 6.7/10.0 (We can round the 6.7 up to a C average.) Ride Along 2 meets any high school movie.
Generic Name: A Cure for Wellness (a-kUR-fOr-wAL-nis)
Brand Name: 20th Century Fox
What is A Cure for Wellness?
An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company's CEO from an idyllic but mysterious "wellness center" at a remote location in the Swiss Alps but soon suspects that the spa's miraculous treatments are not what they seem.
Before watching this film:
Make sure you're prepared to dispose of 2h 30min of your life. The things you will see may initially amuse you because they truly are beautiful, however, over the span of 150 min your eyes will grow weary of beautiful shot after beautiful shot. Once the repetitive shots lose their initial appeal you bear witness to a true cinematic horror.
The plot of this film starts as a singular entity and slowly splinters into all directions. You are left to decide the actual plot of the film. The dialog doesn't make the visual journey any easier, if anything it's a distraction from what you're watching. You may find yourself wishing the movie was a silent film, as I did. After the first 2 hours you'll question your life decisions and what led you to this point. But WAIT, there's more. Yes, 30 minutes more and the worst has yet to come. The final 30 minutes may be what "rock bottom" looks like. I know it may seem like I'm exaggerating but the ending is really that bad. The only people who will like this ending may be fans of Sharknado franchise or if you enjoyed Suicide Squad.
Side Effects include:
Loss of concentration
Loss of time
Loss of money
Loss of sanity
Important Warning from the Reviewer:

Would I pay to rent this film at Redbox? Probably not.

Final grade: 6.0/10.0 Shutter Island meets Pirahna3D, with Eyes Wide Shut visuals.
So, for the last year we've been using drones more and more and drone to where it's become a almost standard part of most shoots. Up until now, we've been renting the Inspire 1 Pro from CameraLensRentals.com, they've been super helped and priced pretty reasonable.
However, owning our own drone was always the goal. So, we bought the Mavic Pro after seeing it's amazing debut video, It looked like it had everything, it was small, it was fast, and it shot 4K video. The problem? Everyone else wanted it too. The product was originally supposed to ship by mid October, didn't get to us until the first week of December.
Then what do we do the first day we get it? We crash it! Yep. Right into the wall. There are a few drone rules that you're supposed to live by. Don't go over 500 Ft (400ft actually), Always keep the drone in eye sight. And Don't fly at night.
I flew it at night. Well, attempted to fly it at night, but really just flew it into a wall. The result. A jello'y gimbal and nearly throwing up from knowing that I just broke a rule that cost me my drone. The errors we got from DJI was that it has an overloaded motor and an obstructed Gimbal.
Watch the video and tell us your experiences with Drones. Thanks.
We recently purchased the Black Magic Ursa Mini 4.6K as our full time cinema camera. Previously, ATB was either shooting DSLRs (5DM3, A7SII) or Renting the RED. This camera has had a lot of hype and tons of fall out. Once again, Black Magic Design over promising and under delivering. (A year late and not global shutter!). However, I was already hooked. This camera has been on my mind for too long. So, we got it.
At ATB we love to tell stories that have heart, so when Paul Wolman of Feats Inc and The Fund for Educational Excellence reached out to ATB Productions to inquire about doing some videos for the "Heart of the School Awards", we couldn't have been more honored.
The "Heart of the School" is an award that honors principals from all around Baltimore for the tough job that they do. Our task was to make a video for Five Finalists that would be played at the Award ceremony held at the legendary Hippodrome theater filled with principals, teachers, and community members from all over the city.
The Honorees were all outstanding individuals, so the task showcasing why they were so great was only difficult due to the fact that we had to keep each video right at or around two minutes.
Overall, it was an amazing experience and we are proud to have been apart of this great event.
