Carrie- Great remake! Dont listen to Critics #movies

 

Do NOT listen to critics on this one!  Go see Carrie, it was a good remake! Frankly it had what i wanted..cool use of powers and some good revenge !  Is it oscar worthy? no of course not.  And sure maybe a little of the acting by Chloe Moritz was a little over the top but go in with low expectations and this movie will surprise you.  Its not scary (and its not supposed to be) its more about the thriller/scifi/bloody revenge kinda thing

 

I wasnt a huge fan of the ending  but hope they consider a sequel

Perfect time to go see this during Halloween

Captain Phillips- Amazing true story that keeps you on edge

Tom Hanks is one of the greatest actors of all time, that goes without saying.  But when you put him anywhere near water he just shines haha

Captain Phillips was such a great movie- not only because it was a true story, but because it gave you an even sided view of the story from both the pirates perspective as well as the victims.   You almost dont want to believe this is what happened but it did!

Tom Hanks is brilliant in this, but really the leader of the pirates almost outshines him in this movie! He’s a great unknown actor.

I also loved the Navy Seals in this movie, they are such badasses!  Imagine the things they’ve done that we dont ever get to know or see a movie about!  They came in and did their job here and l loved Max Martini’s character as the Seal team leader.

This is worth seeing now!

Gravity: Wow a must see, original & def an oscar contender #movies #space

Gravity was amazing.  Lives up to all the hype. Go see it now

First of all the concept and idea itself is really unique. We’ve never gotten a movie like this..all the typical space movies are the same formula, but this is disturbingly realistic.

Its also almost only Sandra Bullock the entire time and she really carries it well!  Clooney is great in it also, but the movie really keeps you at the edge of your seat the entire time.

The visuals are breathtaking and definitely a must see

Prisoners: dark, thrilling, and keeps you guessing #movies

 

Prisoners was really good! It had lots of good buzz and I was hoping it would live up to the expecations and it did!

The story itself is dark and realistic for anyone that has kids or young relatives etc.. and the cast was great. Love seeing a darker side of Hugh Jackman and always a fan of Terrence Howard.

 

What set it apart from the usual kidnapping thriller movie formula was that it kept the audience guessing about what was going on. Lots of twists and new suspects etc

 

Really worth seeing now!

Insidious 2: James Wan does it again! Scary, unique, & well tied to the first! #movies #reviews

Wow- James Wan has got to be the best Horror director of our generation.  And Insidious 2 was everything i hoped for and more!

Not only was it scary like the first one, but you go in expecting a typical sequel story..but you dont get just that.  They connected it in really crazy awesome ways to the first movie!   Great acting by the cast and really great music that really sets the tone reminiscent of the first movie.

Plus i loved at the end the connection to a possible 3rd movie.

This is a movie all scary movie fans should go see right away!

Riddick: A good 3rd installment, but not as good as the last two! #movies #reviews #vindiesel

 

Im  a huge Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick fan, as well of course of Vin Diesel.  So i was really looking forward to Riddick sequel #3.  And for the most part the movie was ok.  The problem is each of the last left me wanting more and i expected the same kind of fast paced action bad ass movie.

For some reason Riddick seemed a bit slower, he wasnt as bad ass or as good as he was in the last movies.  Plus a few things towards the end seems like they would not have happened to the old riddick.

If you are a fan you will like it.  And i will say they do a commendable job trying to quickly tie up loose ends to connect to the last movie and even the first movie….just wanted a lot more.

Hopefully they make a 4th one!

The World’s End: Just a Boring slow non-comedy not worth the time #movies #reviews

 

UGH i went in expecting Shaun of the Dead level laughs and quality.  Instead The World’s End was a  slow borefest.  Most of the time no one in the theater was laughing at the dumb jokes.  There were of course a couple really funny moments but i expected way better.  Simon Pegg seems to have lots of hits or misses

It just didnt have the pacing right.  And the story just dragged on and got boring very fast.

Skip this

Elysium: Wow great movie and Sci Fi action from Damon and Blomkamp #movies #reviews

 

Elysium was awesome!  If any of you were fans of District 9 you will love the feeling, and gritty visuals of Elysium.  Really unique concept, but with some really cool sci fi action.  I have to say until Sharlto Copley opened his mouth in the movie i didnt even recognize him playing the bad ass bad guy!   The cast was superb..of course Matt Damon, Copley, Meg Foster, and a few other smaller faves of mine.

Its worth seeing right away or on demand when it comes out.

 

It will make you crave the next Neil Blomkamp film!

2 Guns: Denzel and Wahlberg make it good, just not great #movies #reviews

 

Any movie with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg would be a good bet….and for the most part 2 Guns was good.  It had a few ok laughs, ok action, but it was just all very predictable and expected.  It wasnt bad, but it wasnt a movie id run back to see again.

Its good for a netflix one day

Kick-Ass 2: Unfortunate let down, not like the first #movies #reviews

 

UGH- Kick Ass 2 was a let down.  Instead of staying more true to the first, they went more campy and stupid..including things like projectile vomit and diarrhea in this one.  There wasnt enough real great fighting and it all felt very forced and cheeseball.

Skipping it wont be a bad idea
