This weeks roundup is all about people that look like someone else (or sometimes something else).
When you asked for an Everton Mint but somebody misunderstood, (blame the accent Marion) and thought you wanted to be an Everton mint.
You’ve seen this meme, right? Fat Doggo or Ice Cream ….
Well it’s not just dogs or ice cream.
I think Justin Bieber has been watching old East 17 videos on Youtube, he looks like he could be mates with Brian and Tony and the other two. Expect to see a Steam influenced dance number on the tour.
I think we can all tell what Rocco Richie loves the most in the world Ninja Turtle Michelangelo and sleeping in a dumpster.
Do you think Tyga has a pigeon under his hat too?
Miles Teller is a down on his luck 20 something in the mid-2000s, his luck changes when in gets involved in the business dealings of his old school friend (Jonah Hill), they end up making money taking small government contracts for weapons and the like but then they start approaching bigger government contracts and run into a spot of trouble.
War Dogs could be a companion piece to Pain & Gain, both based on true stories of unlikable people doing horrible things for selfish reasons but presented in a bright an colourful manner (blame Miami) and with a few joke thrown in.
War Dogs has obviously been influenced by Scarface and other stories featuring corrupt versions of the American Dream, which is successfully manages to pull off but doesn’t make the characters remotely likable enough to want to get away with their dodgy dealing nor does it make them villainous enough to want their downfall.
The ‘crossing Iraq with a truck full of guns’ scene is a highlight, its funny, tense and they are actually involved in arms dealing they are making money from. Jonah Hill also continues to impress with his dramatic rather than comedic roles, continuing from his roles in Moneyball and Wolf Of Wall Street.
The problem with War Dogs is that the lead characters don’t really get their appropriate comeuppance. Everything else in the movie we have kind of seen before.
Much like David Hasselhoff who loves the the finger guns pose, Sylvester Stallone loves a pretend punch. He was been working the fake punch since the 70s and is still happily using the pose on the red carpet.
Here is Jason Momoa really getting into the vaudville routine of it all. (Sly appreciates a receptive face punch-e)
Robert Downey Jr may look like he is having the time of his life but inside he is thinking nobody punches Iron Man, don’t you know who I am!
I get the impression Sly sneaked this one in quickly before Robert De Niro could work out what was going on.
Anything for a photo op, he’ll punch it.
Slys motto in life, if in doubt aim for the chin. Or maybe he is just itching Jason Stathams chin.
Michael B Jordan is not even out and out pretending he is okay with it, ‘if you punch my face again I will put you in a choke hold.’
For a long time I looked at this photo and thought why does Sly even know Ronnie Corbett let alone want to punch him? Then I realised, that isn’t Ronnie Corbett at all. In any way.
You have to be under 10 to be allowed a punch, and only under strict supervision.
