Getting your work on Amazon Prime Video and Why it'll take way longer than you think.
We've all been there, Tough Demanding Client.
Ok, team, we need to make a "tremendously" epic video to present to Kim, it should be better than anything anyone's ever seen. However, It's due in 4 hours and We don't have any footage licensed, so you'll be pulling from stock, but tight on budget, Oh, and the world depends on it.
You start with the classics, timelapse city shots, get a sunset in there. Can we get some non-descript' sports team?
Okay, Voice Over? I'm sure the editor could just do that.
The Result is a video that "Destiny Pictures" wished was internal.
As an owner and operator of a video production company, I found this, "Greatness" offensive.
Poor execution. Concept. Writing.
Shown to try and "convince" a man with an extensive film collection, who's gone to the length of kidnapping Foreign Stars to acting in his own movies.
This represents me. You. US. The world's greatest producer of media.
I laughed at it. You laughed at it. The world laughed at it.
I want America to be known for comedy, not as a joke.

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

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.
