I have to say Dead Man Down deserved much better marketing than it got! The movie was great! It wasnt just a regular revenge/action movie..it felt deeper, more emotional..and it had a great story with a few good complex levels. Colin Farrell was great in it and so was Terrence Howard (im a big fan of both of them).
Even though it was a long movie, you didnt get bored and it had a decent number of action scenes and a really bad ass finale battle scene that i liked a lot.
One odd thing to me was that the trailers must have been done by a really bad agency or they were rushed. The trailers completely mistook the movie to be completely different…as if Terrence Howard’s character was going after Colin Farrells character the entire movie when it fact i was the other way around.
Id also say i kinda hated the character Noomi Rapace played..maybe it was her fault..maybe it was the role…it just got me mad lots..especially the really bad french music playing on the radio and at the credits..they could have chosen something better!
Anyway this movie is worth seeing
The visuals of Oz the Great and Powerful..and the trailer..had me hoping it would be like Alice and Wonderland..both visually amazing and a good movie. BUT..Oz just lacked something. I didnt absolutely hate it or anything, but i didnt love it by far. It felt long and kinda boring at points, didnt have a ton of great comedy or action, and i kinda feel like James Franco was mis- cast in this. Something about him didnt exactly feel right. Even Mila Kunis who im a fan of, didnt exactly seem right for this…and her make up as the wicked witch looked really cheesy
There were a couple funny moments with the little flying monkey, and i will say the last 20 mins of the movie were much better and fun.
Id suggest waiting for Netflix on this one
Ugh movies like this make me mad. The trailer made it out to be a funny mix of Hangover and SuperBad type movie…and the trailer made it seem like the focus was the asian kid just turning 21. BUT…it wasnt!
The entire movie was a weird back and forth between the side characters and their story not really the supposed main character at all. So literally you start wondering what the movie is about and who’s perspective its trying to focus on.
Thats just the thing..it was a completely incoherent story line because of that. The entire drunken 21yr old party thing became an odd side show at some times.
Beyond that, it wasnt funny! The only real funny parts were in the trailer ..which always makes me mad
Def not worth seeing at all
Dark Skies was GOOD! I love a good creepy Sci Fi movie..and this definitely delivered. Really great scary scenes and just a really freaky premise that seems realistic.
I loved the acting by the kids and Keri Russel, but i hated the actor they chose to play the husband and his acting. Just felt completely mis-cast ..the movie would have been 10x better with a stronger actor in that role.
If you are a Sci Fi/supernatural fan..definitely go see this!
Im a fan of supernatural movies regardless if they are supposedly romantic types like Twilight etc.. So i thought id give Beautiful Creatures a chance. The premise sorta reminded me of NightWatch/DayWatch.
The one big issue i had that just killed the movie for me was the utter lack of chemistry between the main actors. It felt so completely forced and there was no real romantic chemistry at all. Something about the actor that was the lead just seemed off like he was trying too hard to like the girl ..or maybe it was the overt southern accent etc
The only cool super power usage was at the very end and not all that worth it
Dont believe the hype just because it was a famous set of books even if you are a tween i doubt you will like it. It barely made any money either
I rarely ever walk out of a movie…but wow Identify Thief was just too much cringe worthy cheese and i couldnt watch… It was not funny and way too cheesy and corny and unbelievable.
Im a huge Jason Bateman fan too..so i felt bad leaving but wow horrible written flick..i dont know maybe i could have stayed through to the end and felt better about it..but doubtful
Dont believe the hype..skip this
I didnt expect an oscar worthy movie when i saw Bullet to The Head, by no means. But i at least thought it would be some decent action
There was way too much awkward dialogue, slow scenes, and the action wasnt enough to make up for it.
I will say the biggest disappointment was the complete lack of chemistry between Stallone and Sung Kang (who i loved in Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift and the others). I was really surprised at the just cringe worthy exchanges between them that made no sense..and i dont know if Sung was having a bad week or what but he didnt bring his A game.
Jason Momoa was ok as the bad guy, but he def wasnt in his Kahl Drogo Game of Thrones form at all
Skip this one
