Devil- Ok Shyamalan may be back! this was GOOD

Ok, i was a long term fan of M Night Shymalan..but like most.. felt seriously disappointed at his recent flops..and especially sad about how horrible the Last Airbender was.

BUT –to all of you that like me may have felt he lost it , and to all the people that now laugh at him (when the trailer for Devil played in the theater .i remember the crowd laughing)…GO SEE DEVIL.

I really really liked this movie. It had some good thrills..good twists..and really no slow parts.   You have fun the whole movie trying to guess which person the Devil is…and then there is a good twist. It feels like its the M Night of old..maybe he has his groove back!

I highly recommend this movie..its not super scary but more highly entertaining and full of thrills. 

Its the first of his Night chronicles series..and i hope the rest are this good!

Resident Eveil Afterlife 3D- Great action- surprisingly good for a 4th installment!

Ya know…it always surprises me when not only a sequel..but a 4th installment of any movie is even barely good…so i was REALLY happy that Resident Evil Afterlife was so good!  For fans of the franchise you wont be disappointed..awesome action and great fight scenes…but even for those newbies to the whole series, i think you’d like this.  Does a courtesy intro to the plot in the beginning and then you are off…

the effects were great! the 3D was really well done …the whole movie keeps you paying attention.   Its one of those movies you go to just to enjoy some great zombie killing action haha.

I only had two minor issues with the movie..first…they had this giant zombie with a giant axe…but never explained what it was..or why it was there.  and 2nd..not to spoil it for those of you that havent seen it..but they apparently take away her powers in the beginning..and for no real reason!  Its one of the coolest things about her character and the movie..i was hoping she’d get them back at some point.

Other than that i was glad to see Wentworth Miller back on the screen…sad that Prison Break ended with him not doing many projects after.   And of course Milla Jovavich is great in this..its her long time role…  

If you like these movies..and want some good ol action and zombie thrills..you should go see this and i highly recommend it in 3D

Machete- awesome funny bloody= Go Danny Trejo!

FINALLY- Danny Trejo gets his own movie!  Ive been a fan of his for so long..he’s always been a supporting character playing a gangster mexican in movies like Con Air, Heat, and like a bunch of Steven Segal movies.  And he always gets killed fast!  

This movie was awesome–exactly what it promised over the top cheesy but very funny violence and laughs.   Robert Rodriguez knows how to make people laugh at a movie alongside the cast and how to really throw in some fun bloody action scenes.   I also love that Steven Seagal and Robert DeNiro were in this. 

The only problem i had with them movie was Lindsay lohan…not sure why they even gave her the role..but wow she CANNOT act!  not even a bit..all she had was maybe 3 lines the whole movie and it was sad how badly she delivered them..not even funny bad like the theme of the movie.  

Go see this movie if you were a fan of the Grindhouse films by Tarantino…or if you are in the mood for some laughs and violence..its a great movie

Scott Pilgrim vs The World: Great fun movie!

Scott Pilgrim was a cool unique fun movie.  Lots of good laughs..but you gotta love the over the top video game style action.  It was great.  Scott Cera was the perfect choice for this role—he sticks to what he knows playing the same role in every movie..but he does it well!

If you’re up for a fast paced light hearted movie with some quirky fight scenes you will like this lots.    My favorite part of all (SPOILER– Do not read if you would rather be surprised)– the awesome cameo appearance by Hung’s Thomas Jane and Clifton Collins jr (you’ll recognize him from tons of supporting roles and Star Trek)..they were hilarious!!!!!

Go see it

The Expendables: Good Action but bad movie

I was looking forward to the Expendables…all those action heroes ..tons of potential.  And i have to say from an action point it was great! the fight scenes were good..although a bit roughly shot..when the action did happen it was good.

My problem was the rest of the movie, Bruce Willis and Arnold had barely any role at all (feel like i was ripped off there), the musical score was bad! even during some of the fight scenes..just some cheesy repetitive music that didnt fit will. I found myself losing focus on the fighting and thinking about the music (thats a tell tale sign of the wrong music).  

A lot of the plot was cheese (now thats different than acceptable cheese in an over the top action movie like this)..and i think they completely mis-cast the latin woman.  Most of her scenes and incorporation in the story didnt make any sense and were really cheesy..expecially the odd closeup of her at the end with CGI water clearly behind her.

Jason Statham was great in it! They should have used Charisma Carpenter more, and im glad Terry Crews finally got to be in a regular action movie without being killed off or something  (im pretty sure he was just a dead body in Terminator Salvation). 

One clearly odd thing they did was try to explain Randy Coture’s cauliflower ears…they had him do some wierd dialogue about wrestling etc.  Its so random..people woudnt have cared if they left it out.

So im glad i saw it to see some action..but sad that it wasnt very good all together..

Dinner for Schmucks- if you like dumb funny and Carrell movies not so bad

Dinner for Schmucks was very odd..and ill be honest there were a few good funny parts…but i wasnt in love with it. Its is absolutely meant for those people that love "dumb" funny.  Also if you are big fan of Steve Carrell.   For me his movies are hit or miss lately.  But hey the people in the theater were laughing lots..i dont know maybe i dont respond super well to dumb humor as much as others..my friends liked it enough.  I enjoyed watching it but wouldnt see it again.

So i have to go middle of the road on this one..if you are  Steve carrel..dumb humor person..you will like it..go see it.  Otherwise wait for rental

Salt- like Bourne Identity with Angelina Jolie

If you liked any of the Bourne movies..you will love Salt.  It was really great non stop action ..with Angelina Jolie.  Whats really interesting to me about the movie and plot..is that it actually is like real life…last month they caught those 10 russian spies here in the US.  Its odd why the studio didnt use that to their advantage in their marketing …because so much of it connects in the movie

If you’re lookin for some great spy thriller action and fight scenes…you will like this
