Bad Boys For Life | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The first trailer for Bad Boys For Life is here, and it's filled with the type of carnage only Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) can create. Taking over directing duties from Michael Bay are Belgian directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. Will they be able to bring the "Bayhem"? Judging by the trailer, it would appear so. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, check it out below.

It seems that the boys are starting to show their years as they get ready to take on another major player in Miami's seedy underworld - said to be a drug cartel leader named Armando Armas and played by Jacob Scipio. The phrase "one last time" comes up a lot, and Burnett needs glasses. There's even talk of retirement, but will they actually hand in their badges? Who knows, but we have seen this type of talk before; Burnett was going to break up the partnership in Bad Boys 2, but he didn't. Apart from that, Burnett and Lowrey are fighting crime the only way they know how, by causing lots of destruction and arguing about it. The real selling point being the chemistry between Smith and Lawrence, which is still perfect after an almost 20 year hiatus.

But while Burnett is still looking to avoid the action and violence (not that that ever goes his way, and it's still not), it's Lowrey who appears to be looking to change things up. It seems he's starting to regret his bachelor lifestyle, judging by the look on his face at what appears to be the wedding (possibly for Burnett's daughter), anyway. Gabrielle Union - who reprised her role from Bad Boys 2 in the TV show "L.A.'s Finest" - doesn't appear to be returning, so could this be the source of his regret? Or at least one of them?

Joe Pantoliano and Theresa Randle are returning to their roles as Captain Howard and Theresa Burnett, although Randle doesn't appear in the trailer. Pantoliano's Captain Howard on the other hand does appear, and as expected he's not happy - no surprise really given his terrible moustache! As usual he's screaming and swearing over all the dead bodies and chaos created by two of his most troublesome detectives. Can some of the chaos be attributed to the new generation of young cops that the boys have to work with? Maybe, but there's only two cops who can sing the "Bad Boys" song, and that's Burnett and Lowrey! Apparently the lyrics "take a long time to learn", according to Burnett.

What else is there to say apart from that? It's the trailer to a Bad Boys movie, there's lots of gun fights, explosions, car chases and an interesting leap on to a ladder dangling from a helicopter. Lowrey is still driving flash cars, this time round he's back driving a Porsche, although they don't look as cool getting out of it anymore. Bad Boys For Life looks to be action-packed, over the top and funny as hell. What more can we ask for?

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!

Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below:

Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible.

From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. Gr…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 6 | Home Before Dark

We're back on Apple TV+ this week, checking out one of Apple's new TV shows: Home Before Dark.

As always you can check out the previous post in our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide by clicking here.

Ever since her Dad took her into the newsroom where he works, nine year old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) has been fascinated with journalism. So fascinated in fact, that she started her own newspaper - The Magic Hour Chronicle. But when Matthew Lisko (Jim Sturgess) - Hilde's Father - loses his job, the family is forced to move to Matthew's home town of Erie Harbor, a place he hasn't been back to in many years. There, a chance encounter leads Hilde to look into a thirty year cold case, one that involved the murder of a teenage boy and tore the town apart. Could that be the reason why Hilde's Dad left and never came back?

I will admit that when my fiancé and I were checking out the new content available on Apple TV+ (we had just finished watching the availab…
