Movie Review – Abnormal Attraction (2018)

Abnormal Attraction, 2018.

Directed by Michael Leavy.

Starring Bruce Davison, Nathan Reid, Nicole Balsam, Leslie Easterbrook, Malcolm McDowell, and Jason Leavy.

Synopsis:

While humans and monsters work to put aside their differences, Nick (Nathan Reid) tries to keep his impending nuptials on track in this monster comedy.

In a world where monsters and humans live side by side, no one bats an eye at an abominable snowman (Michael Barra) selling snow cones from an ice cream truck, or a fish man in the water at a pool party, but that doesn’t mean everyone’s happy about it. There are plenty of people who’d like to see monsters out of the picture, and vice versa. Can the two species learn to give tolerance a chance?

One of Abnormal Attraction’s most attractive features is how liberal the film is with the term “monster”. The film’s biggest name is probably

Much like in our world, many people find it possible to peacefully coexist, however there are plenty of others who do not. Nick Lane (Nathan Reid) is one of the few people who stand in the middle and try to bring both sides closer together instead of pushing them further apart. However, when the tension that has been building between both sides reaches its breaking point,

Tom Hanks Reveals Surprising Toy Story Secret About Woody
Toy Story has been a staple of pop culture for more than 20 years. The movies, which largely center on Woody and his relationship to his human owner, Andy, have touched the lives of many Disney fans over the years and it remains one of Tom Hanks' most recognizable roles, despite the fact that he's not actually on screen. Or is it really one of his most recognizable roles? As it turns out, Tom Hanks has a brother named Jim Hanks and, believe it or not, Jim actually voices Woody rather frequently.

Yes, when you're watching any of the main Toy Story movies, or the upcoming Toy Story 4, it's Oscar-winner and generally beloved man Tom Hanks providing the voice for Woody.

Forrest Gump: Twenty Years Later

One of my favorite movies of all time is celebrating its 20th anniversary today; Forrest Gump was released on July 6, 1994 with Tom Hanks playing the title character, a man with child-like innocence and a tendency for stumbling into history while love still eludes him.

Suggesting Forrest Gump as a favorite film these days doesn’t seem to be as accepted as it once was. I suspect it has to do with overplay on TV and admiration from most people who watch it. It’s easier to standout if you denounce something popular, we all know this. Gump is a heartwarming epic that has a lot to say about destiny, chance, and history. Sure it glosses over periods of Us history, but it’s not a historical witness; this is fiction at its best. Many found it to be sentiment and ridiculous while others accepted the story and characters; I personally

It's actually not the first time that body doubles and special effects have been used - it's not even the first time a brother has been used. Here are five movies that should make you feel confident that FF7 's adjustments will be seamless and look good.
