Spies in Disguise: Best 2019 Christmas Movies

This Christmas, Fox and Blue Sky Studio released Spies in Disguise, directed by Nick Bruno. A fun, adorable, entertaining and action-packed movie, this deserves a warm gift for children and families in this December.
The subject of spies was not new from the James Bond series, Jason Bourne to Kingsman. Even cartoons, the audience is familiar with Totally Spies! or Kim Possible. Spies in Disguise is like a mixture of two elements: cartoon and protagonist who is the elegant spy guy. At first, the audience will think this is just an animated version of James Bond. However, Spies in Disguise does not follow the familiar motif we often see. Instead, the film goes towards pure entertainment, fun and hit the audience is children. And thanks to the understanding of the direction and audience itself, the film has brought extremely refreshing moments for the audience.


The content of Spies in Disguise is inspired by the short animated film Pigeon: Impossible by screenwriter – animator Lucas Martell. Pigeon: Impossible, although only 5 minutes, took 5 years to implement. The film is about a pigeon holding the “nuclear suitcase” of the US President. Coming to Spies in Disguise, the script writers Cindy David, Lloyd Copeland and Lloyd Taylor created a richer and more spy story. With the main character is the super cool guy, who is admired by many people Lance Sterling (Will Smith). However, Lance was harmed by bad guys and in the process of troubleshooting, he was accidentally turned into a pigeon in a bold experiment by assistant Walter Beckett (Tom Holland). Pigeons are the perfect cover for Lance to act. However, under the guise of the dove, Lance cannot perform action scenes and use high-tech items normally. And many funny things happened from there.
Because of the purpose of entertainment, in general, the plot of Spies in Disguise is nothing too sublime. There are even moments when an adult audience will find it quite silly. However, the extremely cute and silly pieces can make the audience forgive it all. Especially when Lance Sterling was turned into a dove. The lovely shape and the series of humorous lines of this character make viewers laugh. In addition, there are other pigeons that are a strong supporter for Sterling, while contributing the most amusing to the film.

‘Cats: The film was criticized but the music is doing well

Director Tom Hooper must have had dozens of bricks to bring back as a Christmas gift, when the adaptation of the Broadway musical called Cats: Cats, really failed miserably. The film is receiving a lot of criticism from both professionals and moviegoers. The most obvious evidence for the tragic end of Cats is the 17% score on the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes.

Negative comments and comments about the film have been appearing ever since the first trailer of the film was released. The first day of the Cats release also grossed … “terrible” with only 6.2 million. Actually this is a very painful result after the efforts of the whole crew.

But this review is not to be deceived, but to advocate for this adaptation. Ignoring haters, ignoring disgusting comments, ignoring the flat score and also disappointing sales. If you love music, you will love the movie. If you like the choreography and the inability to act, you’ll love the movie. So treat this as a work to enjoy in the Christmas season, not too scrutinizing.

The story of Cats: Cats are very simple. Almost all the details in the book Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S Elliot, published in 1939, are completely preserved. Victoria kitten, played by bale actress Francesca Hayward, was thrown away in an alley in London. Soon after, the cat was surrounded by wild cats named Jellicles, and they introduced themselves with the song Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats. The members of this “gang” include Skimbleshanks, Jennyanydots, two thieves Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer, fat cat Bustopher Jones and finally Mr. Mistoffelees with a warm heart.

Victoria seems to have joined the ranks of Jellicles cats on a pretty day. Deuteronomy, the goddess of cats, is hosting the annual party called Jellicle Ball. Each cat will have to impress her to enter the Heaviside Layer, where the chosen cat will have the opportunity to reincarnate. However, all conflicts occur when the Jellicles group is attacked by Macavity, a crafty, cunning cat. His accomplices Growltiger and Bombalurina want to take control of their leader Macavity.

The production, design and costumes of the movie are very … weird. This I also agree. However, the more you watch, the more familiar the audience becomes familiar with the images. To do this, audiences must at least have faith in the adaptations, or in this case Cats. The costumes and makeup of the actors are greatly supported thanks to CGI technology. The cats in the movie are modified with mischievous ears and the tail is always fluttering. Another thing that audiences need to keep in mind is that the characters in the movie are full-sized, like cats. So the set must be really huge. For most of the film, cats will dance together, sing under tables, or even on a dirty street with dozens of trash bins around.

Knives out: Detective work with modern vibes

Surprisingly one after another in the detective film directed by Rian Johnson, Knives Out , with the focus on the detective Benoit Blanc played by “James Bond” Daniel Craig.

After the success of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, director Rian Johnson chose a less noisy project called Knives Out. Belonging to the detective genre, the mystery of the film The Guy Leanquy gathers the popular cast including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis,.. Once again Rian Johnson proves his talent for capturing the crowd by delivering a plump, humorous work that is just enough, while at the same time adhering to the political message of the age.

The film possesses a new story: a rich family suddenly discovers that Mr. Harlan Thrombey in his house died suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving behind an enormous fortune that everyone’s children want. The detective was invited, although the scene showed no sign of an attack likely to be a suicide, but no one believed it. Then, step by step the game is turned upside down, revealing the heavenly secrets that the living torment, the dead take away.
Through the interview with the members, the audience learned something about the descendants of the house. The eldest Linda (Jamie Lee Curtis) brags about her becoming a self-made millionaire, empty-handed and a few million dollars loan from her father to make a fortune. His son Walter (Michael Shannon) is very hard at publishing his … books. Daughter-in-law Joni (Toni Collette) plays on Instagram, but it turns out she wants to save money for school that Harlan gives her niece to spend money. Even grandchildren such as Ransom (Chris Evans) or Jacob (Jaeden Martell) are also liars who argue with their parents. All are mounted as a parasitic community on old Harlan.

Knives out- The topic of detective familiar combining elements of the times
Claiming to be a detective fan who grew up with the works of Agatha Christie, Rian Johnson has set the scene of the classic Keuten movie with a bit of a bum. The mansion located in the middle of the forest of the Thrombey family is filled with antiques, antique furniture, artwork … Harlan Thrombey himself (Christopher Plummer) is like any portrait of a wealthy aristocrat Some 100 years ago.

The classic substance of the Conqueror lies in the way detective Benoit Blanc explores, instead of using modern business with high accuracy of the 21st century, he likes to talk to witnesses, judge and use magnifying glass. Through the suggestive times, the audience is constantly asked questions for the characters and spoiled to guess who is the mastermind. The director of The Last Jedi gave the audience the feeling of flipping through each page of Agatha Christie’s classic stories, while enjoying the whodunit series with many exciting innovations.

One of the modern elements of the modern-day “comedy” is the use of politics to satirize, with the tip of the nose pointing nowhere other than the US president. Decisions about immigrants, political factions and the habit of “slashing the wind” about being a self-made billionaire have been made not sarcastic. In interviews, Rian Johnson did not hide this and considered it a pastime for director life. In addition, the message of the immigrant’s kindness and kindness through the image of Marta (Ana de Armas) and the metaphor of wealthy white men also contributed. the innovation of the classic detective genre.

Terminator: Dark Fate – Worth the wait nearly 30 years

Starting the November field office, the sixth part of the Terminator collection, titled Terminator: darkish fate, brought cult characters Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and robotic T- 800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) reunited on display. With many dramatic action, the movie is the go back of the action killer logo with James Cameron in price of manufacturing. nonetheless, clinging to names 3 a long time ago is a testomony to the reality that the Terminator collection might be hard to polish once more on contemporary monitors.
The film opens with the events that follow the movie Terminator: Darkish destiny. The future of Skynet did no longer happen thanks to Sarah Connor. but people have in no way been peaceful. A terrific soldier and a Rev-nine destruction robot are sent from the destiny, one side wants to smash the goal to make certain the destiny of synthetic intelligence, the alternative facet tries to protect the hopes of the human beings. species. it’s also while the characters from the past go back …
The comeback of the “elderly” duo
The closing assembly between actors Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger inside the film has been 28 years considering the fact that Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). At that time, both of them have been nevertheless spring and youthful. Now reunited, “the primary 6, the primary 7” were her grandparents. however the power that Hamilton and Schwarzenegger deliver in darkish destiny is still so robust as though they have got by no means aged after such a lot of years.
returned to the function of female enhancer Sarah Connor, Linda Hamilton is “as warm as ever”. It turned into still a sensible lady, willing to surrender and no longer recognized to give up as we’ve got seen inside the previous Terminator films. darkish fate also recreates a few classic scenes of Sarah as information descending from motors and firing the robot heads, or taking walks in the wasteland …
Action thrilling, dual key blurred
The movie Terminator: dark fate possesses a incredibly stunning photo with many dramatic action scenes, with the center being remarkable warrior individual Grace (Mackenzie Davis plays). The actress excelled in taking most of the close-u.s.a.with her co-famous person Gabriel Luna (Rev-9). the 2 got into “fighting” from the primary minute, all from the highway to the factory. The combat scene at the plane was additionally elaborately staged, even though quite darkish.
Grace’s electricity and resolution make her now not inferior while placed subsequent to her senior Linda Hamilton. Many film details even display Davis’s dominance over the remaining character lines.
in the meantime, the girl lead of the movie is Dani (Natalia Reyes) too faint and awkward. Even as compared to Gabriel Luna who plays robots destroying Rev-nine, Dani is even less charismatic. Thankfully for Natalia, her co-stars helped carry the team.
The film Terminator: dark fate, despite the fact that quite appealing, lacks new elements that could convey the emblem in the long run. The attraction of the movie remains with two elderly stars, Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Consequently, it would be reasonable if that is the last movie Terminator to close this famous action logo.
