Will Smith

Bad Boys II

Bad Boys II

This felt like two different films. The first was quite similar to the previous Bad Boys movie, although it felt like they upped the comedy quite a lot. I was certainly laughing more than I’d expected. And then, when the whole gang turned up in Cuba, the film became out and out action. There were some gorgeous shots, it was like Top Gun!

Will Smith is excellent, as always, in fact much better than the other actor which does make it a bit annoying when so much focus is on the other guy. I also couldn’t work out what to make of Téa Leoni. I mean, we know Michael Bay doesn’t know what to do with women but this character’s story arc was the weirdest thing ever.

It's not unusual

When Will Smith appeared on Graham Norton last time, he did the rap from Fresh Prince and it was brilliant. This time, he goes a step further. At first, it’s like… yea, he’s rapping with his kid, that’s cute. Then he does the Fresh Prince bit again. And then, it gets magical. I almost welled up, it was so good.

Everybody knows the theme tune

Everybody knows the theme tune

I don’t watch the Graham Norton show. I don’t mind him in small doses but a whole show would be pushing it. However, I saw this clip with Will Smith and Gary Barlow, and loved it! Everyone knows the words to the theme tune, it’s just one of those cultural things. I particularly love Gary’s input to the rendition though.

DVD Day #3

DVD Day #3

I forgot to write about DVD Day #2, which included Spiderman 2 (not as good as the first) and Garfield (not as good as the trailer), so it wasn’t really worth talking about. Today, whilst partaking in popcorn, Pringles and dips, we’ve seen I, Robot and King Arthur. I, Robot was brilliant, funny and unusual, and I didn’t find myself picking many holes in it at all. Plus, Will Smith is pretty much always a guaranteed success.
