We hope you had a wonderful holiday week. Many of you around the world have holidays during the first couple of weeks in July, so we hope wherever you are, that you are enjoying your special days.
Apparently, many of you around the world went to see Hancock, with Will Smith and Charlize Theron. Falcon and Dove liked it a lot: laughed, was impressed with the special effects and would give it 3 stars. It made a boatload of money: 186.7 million dollars since last Wednesday worldwide.
It did get poorly edited in plot detail in the last 40 minutes of the film... advice to director: just let the product run over 2 and a half hours. If it's important to the plot, keep it. Will Smith is pure money when opening in July, so have no fear. I got it (the backstory)...but a lot of people would have liked the background on these characters, and some of the period history could have been depicted in the film. That would have been particularly nice considering that the last time Will and Charlize were together was in beautiful Savannah in "The Legend of Bagger Vance".
Hellboy II is coming out this weekend, and should completely rock! The commercial spots have been hysterical: from public service featuring a long haired cat to American Gladiators and "In the Actor's Studio" interview.
We will be featuring some additional summer reviews shortly, so stay tuned...
Be safe, World Family,
Falcon and Dove
