The War with Grandpa is the young vs old revenge family movie we all need
August 14th, 2020 under Robert De Niro. [ Comments: none ]

I don’t know about you, but I desperately need a family comedy that involves a lot of pain and even more laughter. Well, I am going to get all of that on October 9th with The War with Grandpa.

Sixth-grader Peter (Oakes Fegley) is pretty much your average kid-he likes gaming, hanging with his friends and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather Ed (Robert De Niro) moves in with Peter’s family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom. Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won’t go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences.

I know most people will say that Robert De Niro’s greatest movies are his Oscar-winning films. I say they are his revenge comedies. Watching him torture Ben Stiller in the Meet the Fockers franchise is pure gold. What about all the craziness he brought the Analyze This and then That? Then there was that movie he went muscle to muscle with Zac Efron in Dirty Grandpa. This is why, I think, he became an actor. However, other people might say it is for Raging Bull and Taxi Driver.


Aren’t Dolittle and Jungle Cruise basically the same movie?
October 13th, 2019 under Robert De Niro, The Rock. [ Comments: none ]

Martin Scorsese said, “Theaters have become amusement parks.” Some might argue that he is wrong. Then this week, we got two trailers that look like amusement park rides come to life on the big screen. Granted Jungle Cruise is based on one at Disney. However, Dolittle feels like it will be coming to Universal in 2023. Which makes me think the legendary director is right.

When it comes to Dolittle, Robert Downey Jr. as Dolittle, I prefer Eddie Murphy’s version. I would rather be on a ride based on the latter one’s movie than the one that is coming out on January 17th. What about you?


There’s a reason why we call him Robert f*cking De Niro
September 30th, 2019 under Robert De Niro, TV News. [ Comments: none ]

Robert De Niro was on Reliable Sources yesterday and Brian Stelter got exactly what he asked for. The CNN host said to his guest, “Folks on Fox come after you. I remember the Tonys, you got up there and cursed.” Without hesitation, the Oscar winner responded by saying, “F*ck ’em. F*ck ’em.”

Then all of a sudden everyone was shocked that he dropped the f-bomb not once but twice live on the air. What did they expect? You ask him about cursing, of course, he is going to do it. It is what I would do. It is most likely what you would do. So I say to them, “F*ck ’em!”

Now when it comes to De Niro saying that the President “is like a gangster.” He has played a gangster enough times to know when someone is one. Right?


The Irishman might be the best Mafia film since The Godfather
July 31st, 2019 under Al Pacino, Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro. [ Comments: none ]

Somehow I missed that Martin Scorsese is doing a film for Netflix and The Irishman stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel. If that cast with that director does not scream that it will dominate the Oscars in 2020, then nothing will.

What is this film about? It is an “epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.”

I don’t normally like these type of films, but even I want to see it. Then again I have always been interested to find out what really happened to Hoffa. Maybe this film will solve it. With legends like the ones in this feature, they can do anything. Capiche?

The Irishman does not have a release date, but it will be playing in select theaters and streaming on Netflix this fall. I expect it to make a killing at the box office and be a hit on the service. See what I did there?


Those Fockers, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller were on Saturday Night Live!
April 15th, 2018 under Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, Saturday Night Live. [ Comments: none ]

This is what I am picturing. Earlier in the week, after Michael Cohen’s office was raided, someone in SNL’s writer’s room suggested that they get Robert De Niro to play Robert Mueller. Since the Oscar winner is no fan of Donald Trump, I am pretty sure he jumped at the offer.

Sometime after that, someone suggested that they get Ben Stiller to play the disgraced lawyer. They did not only ask because Stiller looks like him, but also because they can recreate that lie detector scene from Meet the Parents.

That is exactly what they did on Saturday Night Live yesterday, and I hope both men are on speed dial to reprise their roles in the future. I cannot wait for the day when Alec Baldwin and De Niro, play Donald Trump and Mueller in a cold open. Partially because it will be funny, but mostly because the investigation is nearing the end and our national nightmare will soon be over. Although, President Mike Pence is a pretty terrifying concept too.
