"The Boss Baby" Review

DreamWorks Animation’s first effort of 2017 is "The Boss Baby”, generously adapted from Marla Frazee’s 2010 picture book about a baby with a briefcase who randomly shows-up to the house of a husband and wife. The concept is certainly out-there, and could’ve been taken in a load of directions. My main question going in was how the filmmakers were going build a coherent feature out of such a wacky premise.

First Blood: The vulnerability before the heroism

When we watch First Blood (1982) today, 35 years after its release and having had our thoughts coloured by three sequels and countless wannabes, we are faced with a contradiction. On the one hand you have the John Rambo we all think of when we hear is name, the fighter, the warrior, the Reagan era American hero. As Colonel Trautman explains, Rambo is ‘an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Rambo was the best.’
