The Boss Baby Review

Very Good

There isn't a lot of subtlety in this madcap animated comedy, which is more aimed at nostalgic adults than young kids who will miss the rapid-fire movie references. But it's also silly and busy, and cute enough to make everyone in the audience sigh a few times. And it's anchored by a terrific vocal performance from Alec Baldwin that channels his infantile Donald Trump impersonation to hilarious effect.

The story is told through the eyes of a creative 7-year-old named Tim (Tobey Maguire as the film's narrator, Miles Bakshi as the character), who has enjoyed growing up as the only child of his playful, loving parents (Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel). Then a little baby brother (Alec Baldwin) arrives, and Tim discovers that he can walk and talk, and also that he's the CEO of Baby Corp, sent on a secret mission to spy on Puppyco, where Tim's parents work. Apparently, puppies are becoming more popular than babies, and now the Puppyco boss (Steve Buscemi) is preparing to launch a breed of puppy that will forever steal the love of parents from their children. In a panic, Tim teams up with the Boss Baby to get rid of him for good.

It's clear to grown-ups in the audience that all of this is happening in Tim's wildly imaginative head, which kind of eliminates any tension in the crazed action mayhem that follows. Younger viewers may find the premise itself rather baffling, but will enjoy the hyperactive pacing and snappy dialogue. The only problem with this is that it means that the movie remains resolutely superficial, touching on big issues like sibling rivalry and corporate greed without ever dealing with them. And it presents a baby as an aggressive invader, which may be how it sometimes feels to an older sibling, even if we know better.

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer - Trailer and Clip


Norman Oppenheimer is a New York based hustler determined to climb the social ladder and make connections with all the important people. It's never really clear why he's so desperate to do often dubious favours for people of the elite that he barely knows, but he certainly uses his meetings as ammunition during social occasions, name-dropping where he can and wheedling his way into conversations that might benefit him in the future. He does everything he can to ensure that people meet and remember him, even if that means chasing people down on their morning jog or breaking into their homes. Nobody really knows the truth about his job, his background or even his family, but one thing that's for sure is that his life is about to be turned upside down after a down-and-out young politician he met three years ago becomes the Prime Minister of Israel.

The Boss Baby Trailer


What happens when a baby takes the top position? Seven-year-old Tim Templeton was doing just fine until his parents brought home his new baby brother, who seemed determined to attract as much attention as possible and steer their parents' sights away from poor Tim. Sibling rivalry is a natural thing, but Tim is exasperated by his mom and dad's blindness towards the baby, who happens to be constantly dressed in a business suit and carries a mini briefcase. It seemed inevitable that the baby would grow up to be a boss someday, though everyone expected him to actually grow up first. One day, Tim discovers that the baby can talk, though it's less 'goo goo ga ga' and more 'let's strike a deal'. As much as this news rocks Tim's world, he must team up with his bossy little brother when they discover that the CEO of Puppy Co., Francis E. Francis, wants to take over the world.

Hotel Transylvania 2 Trailer


Count Dracula seems to have really changed his ways, embracing humans and allowing them to stay at his monster-filled Hotel Transylvania after taking a shine to his daughter Mavis' new human boyfriend Johnny. Now the pair have a child together named Dennis, and despite having vampire in his blood, he doesn't seem to possess any monster ability of any kind. When Mavis and Johnny take a break to visit the latter's parents, she asks her dad to babysit her son - but that probably wasn't the best idea. In charge of young Dennis, Dracula enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne and Griffin to train him up to be a real monster, and take him on a trip of their own. But when Mavis finds out what they're up to, she's less than happy and makes to come home. But she's not the only one; Dracula's father Vlad is making a surprise visit, and he's not going to be happy that the hotel is filled with humans.

Following on from the adventures in the Hotel Transylvania, in which Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) was forced to hide a human from the clients of his "monsters only" hotel, things have gotten even stranger. Jonathan (Andy Samberg), the human traveller, and Mavis (Selena Gomez), Dracula's daughter, have fallen in love and had a baby. This new, half human half vampire baby, is accepted by the monsters inhabiting the hotel. But Dracula is not as impressed as he could be: he wants his grandson to take on the ways of a vampire like he did, and is willing to do whatever it takes to help him become a terrifying monster.

Watch Steve Buscemi And Danny Trejo Transported Into 'The Brady Bunch' In Snickers' Superbowl Spot


Danny Trejo Steve Buscemi Florence Henderson Maureen McCormick

You may have to do a double take when watching the Snickers’ Superbowl commercial this Sunday. While the advert takes us back in time to the familiar world of 'The Brady Bunch', something just isn’t quite right as Marcia and Jan look remarkably like tough guy actors Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi.

Danny TrejoDanny Trejo takes on his toughest role yet in the Snickers Superbowl commercial

The advert is a take on the much loved series’ most famous episode, the one where Marcia gets hit in the face with a football, breaking her nose. But there’s a twist, as this Marcia is a lot angrier and resembles Desperados star Danny Trejo.

Steve Buscemi Kelly MacDonald Michael Shannon Michael K. Williams Stephen Graham

HBO have given us a first peek at Boardwalk Empire’s fifth and final season, which is set to air this September. A menacing sense of violence tingles through the 38-second trailer as Nucky, Chalky, Al Capone, Luciano, George Mueller all play a central role.

Boardwalk Empire

And if the stakes could get any higher following season 4’s finale, then the great depression certainly goes a long way towards raising them. Michael K. Williams has already confirmed that HBO’s period gangster drama will take place 7 years after season 4’s ending. Watch the teaser here.

Khumba Review


Very Good

When this South African animated adventure embraces its unique setting and characters, it's visually stunning and a lot of fun. But it also tries to force everything into a trite Hollywood formula, unnecessarily adding clunky songs, goofy comedy sidekicks and big action set-pieces. Still, there's enough fresh storytelling and lively humour to keep us engaged, and some spectacular animation too.

It's set in the Great Karoo desert, where a herd of zebras has fenced off its own watering hole. But as a drought sets in, bullied half-striped zebra Khumba (voiced by Jake T. Austin) becomes worried about the animals outside. When he hears about a mythical pond that can restore his stripes and supply water to everyone, he leaves his best pal Tombi (AnnaSophia Robb) to take an epic trek across the desert. Along the way he picks up a variety of goofy travelling companions, including a hyena (Steve Buscemi), buffalo (Loretta Devine) and ostrich (Richard E. Grant). But he's also hunted by the vicious half-blind leopard Phango (Liam Neeson), who blames Khumba for his own hot-tempered misfortunes.

The animators far surpass the simplistic script with imagery that takes the breath away, from expansive landscapes to cleverly designed characters. And as the wacky sidekicks continually try to push the film over into slapstick silliness, the startlingly violent Phango reminds us of the darker side of nature as well as some deeper African cultural issues. This mix sometimes feels jarring, but that works in the film's favour. As do some inspired comical gags involving, for instance, a nutty sheep (Catherine Tate), a gang of hilariously agreeable meerkats and a herd of dumb-jock springboks.
