Review

I watched the premiere last night and I don’t have many words to say. It’s because the movie left me without any impression. I didn’t have any emotions during the whole movie except maybe one scene that had me reminded of my ultra experience. Also, the plot is predictable and it’s all kind of superficial. A first half an hour was so boring and then I felt it could go up to the better, but no, the rest was the average even though the action have little changed and a bit of drama was dropped, but not enough good scenes to keep me interested. Movie soundtrack could be much, much better, as well. If you need to kill an hour and a half go watch it, but if you want to see some good movie don’t. Maybe a little bit of naked Zac would save the day, but that also did’t happen.

Review

This thriller about an American family caught up in a bloody coup in an unnamed South East Asian country is exciting from start to finish. It’s a fictional thriller with elements of some real terror we have seen in true stories like ‘Hotel Rwanda’ and ‘The Killing Fields’. The on location (Thailand) filming is atmospheric.

The action from the street fighting to the hotel rooftop to the office building and embassy is nail bitingly tense.

Owen Wilson shows he is convincing and believable in dramatic roles. He was great in ‘Behind Enemy Lines’ and it’s good to see him back in a non comedic role again. Lake Bell plays his supportive wife and it’s good they make her character quite likable and non irritating. The kids on the other hand have just a couple of annoying scenes as expected.

Pierce Brosnan acts as a British agent of some sort who provides the political correctness by explaining that exploitation by Western governments and companies caused the coup.

Some criticisms of this movie aren’t fair. It’s not fair to say it’s unrealistic or ridiculous, it is a thriller so that’s like saying ‘Mission Impossible’ is unrealistic. Another is that portraying a South East Asian country with such brutal savagery is 30 or 40 years out of date. Actually it had to be a relatively stable place or he wouldn’t have taken his family there. Things explode suddenly. If you think about it, it’s not really that far fetched. Ironically to show how things have changed Vietnam is the safe haven here.

Overall the most exciting thriller in a long time.

Review

Straight Outta Compton is the story of N.W.A, a group of 5 men growing up in Compton and the struggle they face with the police as well as their rise to fame and how they influenced the world. As controversial as the group is, they have inspired many including myself, this film is a perfect reflection of that.

From the beginning we get a glimpse into how the police treated these people because of their skin colour. This was a very real thing and the film does a perfect job at showing this, to an almost shocking degree. First off,the cast is perfect. O’Shea Jackson shines in particular. He plays Ice Cube and is actually his son in real life. It can’t be easy playing your father, but he makes it seem that way. His mannerisms and look are just brilliant, it is almost as if we are seeing Ice Cube himself. Dr. Dre and Eazy-E are also played brilliantly and i could not see anyone doing a better job. This film is very much based around those three members of NWA, whilst DJ Yella and MC Ren do have parts to play it was a bit odd that they didn’t get nearly enough screen time as Cube, Dre and E. Paul Giamatti also appears as manager of NWA Jerry Heller. I’m not entirely sure how accurate his role was in the movie but Paul Giamatti does great at being part caring manager, part corporate douchebag.

Around the third act the film slows down in pace as it shows us the fall of NWA and the feud with Ice Cube. Where many people saw this as a flaw, i was as entertained with this portion of the film as i was with the rest of it. We start to see how the members of the group are dealing with their own personal issues, so as a result we get a good look behind the scenes of the glamour and music as well as the personal lives of people we thought we knew. For example, we get to see Ice Cube writing the script for Friday which shows how he is moving on from NWA. A character in the film talks about how NWA is glamorising drugs and violence, as producers Ice Cube and Dr. Dre do brilliantly at showing us how this wasn’t the case. You can really see in the writing that they are passionate about this story.

Overall, Straight Outta Compton is one of the gems of the year. The soundtrack is brilliant and had me rapping along to the lyrics on more than one occasion. It made me laugh, it made me tear up at points and in a way it really inspired me to be what i want to be. I highly recommend this film to absolutely anyone who will listen. It demands to be seen in cinemas and is one i will most definitely be buying on blu-ray. One of 2015’s best movies and that is no exaggeration. Time to go home and blast out the old NWA records.

Review

Industry pundits are gob smacked and they have every reason to be. What started as an over the top action spectacle has turned into a refined espionage thriller, albeit still a tall tale, but close on the heels of recent Bond films. Now in its fifth installment, and 20 years later, the Mission Impossible franchise has finally found its niche by almost entirely abandoning the cheese.

In some ways, Rogue Nation could also have the edge over Daniel’s Craig’s Bond flicks when considering the latter’s tradition for forced romance and prototype gadgetry. None of that here, and thankfully, no time inflating fillers either. That said, there isn’t much of a story either and John Le Carre fans will eat through the plot before you can say “I spy”. Instead, Rogue Nation offers the best thrills in the series where the ride has prominence over the destination. For now, all you need to know is that the IMF has found its diabolical equal in The Syndicate, a shadow organization responsible for orchestrating devastating geo-political terror attacks around the world. But just when Ethan Hunt discovers their leader, Solomon Lane (Sean Harris), CIA director Hunley (Alec Baldwin) disbands the IMF, citing unorthodox engagement tactics. Working from the shadows, and double crossed by double agents, Hunt does what he does best – a series of impossible missions that leaves us breathless.

Reprising his role as Hunt, it would only be half-truth to say that Rogue Nation is all Tom Cruise. But with Cruise actually performing his own stunts, it’s fair to say that the success of this film emanates from his unmatched delivery as an aging action hero. Unless Cruise is nourished from a secret fountain of youth, doing all that he does at the age of 53 is in itself an incredible feat and worth the price of admittance. The other half emanates from insane white-knuckle action paused only by Hitchcockian moments of suspense. Flanking adrenaline packed car and bike chases are two nail biting scenes – one takes place above the stage of a Viennese opera and the second in an underwater vault which appears to be shot in one take. Both scenes are insanely pulse pounding and precisely why this installment is the best in the series.

That casting takes a backseat could be a dent in the overall making of this film. Although Simon Pegg is back for comic relief and he delivers, Jeremy Renner’s inclusion serves no purpose at any point during the plot. Additionally, Harris as the villain is more annoying than threatening, and visibly weak in comparison to Philip Seymour-Hofmann’s mesmerising delivery in Mission Impossible III. Even so, none of this diminishes from the sheer entertainment factor of this film and precisely why the franchise has been accumulating a massive fan base.

I don’t think Sinister 2 was better than the first but in some respects it was at the very least as good as. I think the cast wasn’t quite as strong and it didn’t have the experience and Hollywood clout that Ethan Hawke brought to the table. Still, it does give it a more indie feel and really builds on the Bughuul lore that is built up in the first one. I love this legend they’ve created in this series and it could be a long term franchise if they handle it right. They still sort of leave Bughuul in the background of the story although its less so the case in the sequel but I think we really need an entry in the series that brings him to the forefront. Makes him a truly evil and viable foe. One of the creepiest and best parts of the first film was the use of the 8MM films that Hawke finds in his attic and this film realizes that aspect and uses it even more making them in depth and even more disturbing and a really vital part of the story. Fortunately they don’t overdo it but they are definitely used a lot. The tension is there although not quite as much as the first and the pacing was a little slower. There was also a few key plot holes that I couldn’t get past but overall this is a worthy sequel that horror fans will enjoy. I’m still waiting for them to really take the series to new heights because the potential is there.

There is nothing more that I love than a protagonist returning in a horror series. In this case you have a bit character from the first one played by James Ransone who I thought should have had a bigger role in the first one. He is now the lead and he’s actually very charismatic. He has a sort of bizarre personality, very awkward and nervous seeming but it suits his character and somehow it doesn’t come across as campy. I hope he comes back again in the future and perhaps we will learn why we have not been giving his character’s name yet in two films. Shannyn Sossamon plays the single Mom protecting her two boys on an abandoned farm. Sossamon, much like Ransone, has an awkward almost nervous quality about her and some of her lines aren’t delivered the best but it works for her and she is decent in the role. Her and Ransone have good chemistry that is left mostly unexplored. Real life brothers Robert Daniel Sloan and Dartanian Sloan play Sossamon’s sons that are targeted by Bughuul. Both do a great job and actually shine more than the adult cast. The twist involving them isn’t much of one but they both do a great job regardless. Lea Coco is also good in a small role as their abusive father. I would have rather seen him get a better ending because they establish him as a really awful person early on.

Sinister 2 lacks a lot of expertise. It doesn’t have any big Hollywood experience behind it either on cast or crew. Director Ciaran Foy has very little experience behind the camera and while I think he does add a distinctive indie quality to the film, it needs someone with a more experienced eye to really make it jump. It even feels a little bit rushed but I’m glad they connect it to the first film but I hope they go a little bigger with a third instalment and use this as more of a bridge between the two. There are definitely some genuinely scary moments and it gets under your skin much like the first one did but its just lacking a certain something. The first film felt like it was paying an homage to Stephen King and this one continues that feel as well. I kept thinking how much some of the scenery and certain scenes felt like “Children of The Corn” and then I come to find out that there intention was to pay respects to exactly that story so they are successful in that vein. The setting definitely has a feeling of isolation and creepy backwater locales. Definitely worth watching but won’t impress you like the original. 7/10

Review

Genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, he’s the culmination of decades of research, engineered to have unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence.

Known only as Agent 47, his target is a corporation that plans to unlock the secret of his past to create an army of killers even more powerful than him.

With help from a young woman, the titular assassin confronts revelations about his own origins in an epic battle with his deadliest foe…..

I was always curious as to why 20th Century Fox would try to reboot one of the most inane, boring, movies based on a video game ever made. The original Hit-man had absolutely nothing going for it, and Olyphant, as good an actor as he is, was a poor choice for 47.

And now it appears that history has repeated itself. Here, Rupert Friend is this movies poor choice for the title role (Friend is a wonderful actor), but this time it’s become pretty clear as to why films based on this particular game will never work, Agent 47 literally has nothing about him, no personality, and the fact the film hardly touches his origin just makes the film that little more incoherent.

So the film consists of above average set piece, inane boring exposition for twenty minutes, above average set piece….etc, until the delusional promise of a continuation to the film at the end.

Quinto turns up early in the film, and brings a little life for a while, but then there is a revelation about his character later on, and then he becomes as autonomous as our favourite numerical based agent.

It’s a step up from the 2007 travesty, but that’s like saying breaking a toe isn’t as bad as breaking a finger.

It looks good, there are a few inventive action sequences, but really, there was no need to make this……which makes me very concerned for Hollywood and its lack of ideas.

I have lots of ideas for movies, really good concepts too. Employ me if you want…..

Review

Matthew Vaughn started off the race with Kingsman and now here is his pal Guy Ritchie going ahead and winning it. Just about.

I have been waiting for the movie to open in India (28th August) and at the first available opportunity, got my eyballsfull. And I have never been happier.

I cannot remember the last time I was as taken in by the good looks, the capabilities and the on-screen chemistry of the two male leads who, in every frame hold their own while producing an output so seamless that you marvel at how capable Guy Ritchie is at doing this stuff.

If I had to choose between the two leads, I would have to pull my hair out and poke my eyes. They are that good. One a picture of cool elegance combined with the debonair chutzpah of an accomplished moonlighter, and the other counter-balancing half, of a stereotypical, half-deranged, fully-indestructible, three-quarters-vulnerable, and four-fifths-ruthless KGB agent played to orgasmic perfection by Armie Hammer, we shouldn’t be asking for more.

It is here we experience true generosity. Ritchie offers more. Italian settings,period style car chases, Going over the Berlin wall, and the oh so honeyed British voice of Hugh Grant.

The laughs are real, and they are loud, the tension is titillating, the chases engaging, every scene crafted to perfection, doing just what it is meant to do.

If I were a betting man, I would have bet my house and your too on the movie. Heck, I would still bet them if I weren’t. Watch it, and like it. There is no other way.

Review

Buried somewhere deep within the mangled mess of the spy thriller American Ultra is a compelling love story struggling to get out. Unfortunately, the main story, about a sleeper agent with a target on his head, is unfocused and half-written and just gets in the way. That’s too bad because when the movie just observes its two leads, it’s quite a lovely story. We’ll get to the spy stuff in just a minute.

For a while, I kind of got caught up in the love story. We meet Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg), a perpetual loser whose life is a long, slow ride going nowhere. The only light in his life is his long-time girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart) who seems to have no real reason to be with this stoner, but she sticks by his side with a stubborn devotion that is either admirable or foolhardy depending on your point of view.

Mike is broken, not a bad person, just a little broken. He is prone to panic attacks that have ruined more than one attempt to take Phoebe on a vacation to Hawaii. They spend their nights talking and getting high and there is a light in her eyes when she looks at him. He knows he’s a mess. He knows he’s a burden to her and is always apologizing when his panic attacks ruin their plans. Outside of his dysfunctions, Mike spends his nights working at a grubby convenience store that looks as if it is clinging to the edge of the world. Inside it is dim and quiet with an atmosphere fit for a Stephen King novel. It seems a perfect symbolic match to his circumstances.

What I have described, unfortunately, is the first 15 minutes of the movie. After that, the spy plot comes barreling in the door and what has been gained character-wise goes right out the window. The main plot has been spoiled in the trailer, but if you’re intending to see this movie cold, stop reading now.

One night at work, a woman (Connie Britton from “American Horror Story”) walks into the store and starts speaking gibberish to Mike. He says he doesn’t understand and she turns and leaves. Later, in the parking lot, two men advance on him and he dispatches them with a spoon and cup of hot soup. It turns out that Mike is a sleeper agent from a defunct government program run by the CIA and the project leader (Topher Grace) wants him dead. The woman speaking gibberish is a CIA agent who is trying to save his skin.

What follows is a spy movie in the vein of Jason Bourne, but this movie is a lot less polished. The ads make this look like fun, slacker version of the TV show “Chuck” but it’s actually a dead serious action thriller with buckets of blood and a higher body count then most horror movies (seriously, a guy gets an axe to the head). I could call it by-the-numbers, but there seem to be numbers missing. This is a very badly written movie. There are characters and motivations and plot threads that are brought up but then never referred to again.

Some plot developments are left hanging. There is a character played by Bill Pullman whose function in the movie, I guess, is to be a superior at the CIA. He drops in at the beginning of the movie and then comes back at the end, but darned if I could explain his role or why he’s even here. There’s also seems to be some connection between Topher Grace and the Kristen Stewart character that seems to hint at a personal or perhaps romantic history but it is never explained and goes nowhere. They talk as if they’ve been close in the past but the movie never tells us what their connection is. It’s frustrating.

American Ultra is a maddening experience. There seem to be scenes and explanations that are left out, almost as if we’re seeing a clumsily edited version of the finished product. At a brisk 95 minutes, I wouldn’t doubt if there’s a longer cut somewhere. Not that I need any more of the spy stuff, but a little more of that wonderful love story might be nice.

Truthfully, the worst part of American Ultra is that as soon as I finish writing this review the movie will slip quickly from my mind. By the end of the week, I won’t remember half of it. A month from now I won’t remember the title. Other than the nice chemistry between the two leads, there’s nothing really here to stick in your memory. It’s a good looking but badly written piece of business that bludgeons a sweet indie romance with a blowhard Hollywood plot. If you have to see a movie this weekend, go and see Straight Outta of Compton and save this one for DVD. Maybe then you’ll get a longer cut and maybe it’ll make more sense.

Review

‘The Gift’ is a mystery thriller starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and is the directorial debut for Joel Edgerton who also starred in the film. The film had a very creepy and suspenseful tone for most of the movie that has you on the edge of your seat. I will say right out of the gate that if you fall asleep easily and aren’t into slower films this is probably something you might not last through, because to create that suspense the film is a very slow burn for pretty much the entire film.

For the first hour of the film i was completely engaged and the creepy tone had my full attention, the film had me trying to guess what would happen next only to prove me wrong on most occasions. It was a great unpredictable ride right until that one hour mark where it almost looks like someone else took the reigns and steered the film in another direction. For the whole second act it ditches the the suspense for 30 minutes of strict character development with some development of the main plot that answers a question that could have been answered in like 5- 10 minutes with the same resulting effects. This imbalance really damaged the film and the sudden switch in tone felt more like a lifetime drama with a hint of mystery than a straight up mystery thriller.

The film does manage to revert back to the creepy and unsettling mysterious tones in what resulted in an incredible final 15 minutes that had me in awe. The first hour of the film in combination with the fantastic finale shows that Joel Edgerton can do a really good job at creating a film with good tone, characters and plot that work really well together, but that drop off in the second act shows that he still has a little more to learn in the art of directing.

Lets now move on to the cast and their performances, to me, i thought the whole cast were pretty great and it was a relatively small cast with only Jason Bateman, Joel Edgerton, and Rebecca Hall playing characters you will remember. They all did a great job at playing their characters and they didn’t feel cliché and acted very natural and how you would think some people would react in these situations. Joel Edgerton proved his acting skills again as he nailed that fine line between creepy and generous that had me second guessing myself an many many moments. I was particularly curious to see if Jason Bateman could take on this very serious role and execute it well, as we are used to seeing him in more strictly comedic roles. And now i have to believe that he will be getting more of these roles in the future because of this very convincing performance playing a character who gets more and more interesting as the film goes on, and just as the character got more interesting Jason was getting better and better.

In the end, this indie mystery thriller is a good example why indie films are becoming some of the best films to release this year and can really go up against the big blockbusters.

Review

12 films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe can Marvel keep up their stellar track record? Lets start off with the cast, when the film was nearing production there was talk of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Paul Rudd being favourites for the lead role of Scott Lang, to me both were laughable ideas for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Boy was I WRONG, Paul Rudd as Scott Lang may be my favourite casting in the entire MCU, he was brilliant be it from dropping the typical Rudd jokes we’re used to or actually portraying real emotion when talking about his daughter. Not only was Rudd a brilliant call, I loved the entire cast, Michael Peña was absolutely hilarious, he even rivalled Rudd in his comedic ability, Corey Stoll as Yellowjacket was also another inspired choice I mean everybody in this film was spot on in my opinion. Then we have Douglas and Lilly, who had some a wonderful father and daughter dynamic that just felt so real.

Now we have the visuals even in the modern day of the height of CG it is a bit of a baffling thought to imagine seeing a man running around underground with ants and it to not look stupid. However as ALWAYS ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) delivered some truly stunning visuals. I don’t want to pick out specific scenes, because really they all stand out in their brilliance seeing him shift from man size to ant size in the blink of an eye is like something straight from the page of a book. There is also two scenes towards the end of the film I know you guys and girls will love they involve an ant and Thomas The Tank Engine (not that part from the trailer, it’s even better). Marvel have done it yet again, delivered some stunning effects as they continue to do.

Onto the story, while it is not going to win awards for originality, the story was very fun I thought. Even though Edgar Wright left the project, you could still feel some of his comedic styling in the film, I’d like to know if Tomas The Tank Engine was his idea, feels like a very silly British approach to humour. While the point of the film is not primarily meant to be a comedy, however having Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Paul Rudd and Adam McKay write the script you should expect a fair few giggles and this doesn’t disappoint in that sense. The film is filled with laughs, action, nods to the MCU and even heart strings pulling scenes.

The film touches on some subjects that really hit home for me, which was a nice change of pace for a superhero film. I mean we all want to relate to superheroes in our own way, I just think this felt more relatable the whole Hank and Hope relationship was wonderfully done by Douglas and Lilly, if these types of performances continue I can see an actor/actress getting an Oscar nom for their work on a superhero film. Great times ahead for us “nerds” yay! Overall, I absolutely LOVED Ant-Man it’s very different from the rest of the MCU but exactly the same in some aspects. I will be straight up, I expected this to be easily the worst in Phase 2, I’d say joint second with Winter Soldier after Age Of Ultron for me and I know I gave Winter Soldier a 10 and this a 9, but I still think they are equally as good as each other if that makes sense? No, it doesn’t not even to me, but I stand by it. Plus this gets massive bonus points for a certain reference to a friendly neighbourhood somebody :p. Hard to believe that Marvel have delivered again with a character hardly known outside comic readers, they have kicked ass with both Ant-Man and Guardians, here is to the future of the MCU!

Review

You’d be hard-pressed to find a historical account that acknowledges the influence (much less the existence of) the Minions throughout time. No matter how many textbooks are produced and released each year, almost ZERO of them note the presence of this incredibly powerful minority group.

Well, where history has silenced the Minions, let this surprisingly accurate documentary speak volumes. I found no embellishments of history throughout this 91-minute feature. It would have been easy to swing the pendulum of power to overemphasize the history of the Minions as it relates to major world events, but the filmmakers didn’t go for the easy shots. They simply told the truth, and what we are left with are the clear facts of what really happened to the dinosaurs, the cavemen, and–what I’m sure will be most controversially– the true lineage of royalty in England. Very bold.

If this doesn’t win the Oscar for Documentary Feature, we will truly know which side of history the Academy stands on.

Review

I waited to see this movie in theaters to have the experience by myself without others’ reactions imposed on me. I didn’t read too much about the film other than it was bad. I didn’t delve into the reasons why it was bad because I wanted to give the movie a clean shot.

It was terrible. The film seemed like a long TV pilot episode that should never for any reason see the light of air time or ever be considered to develop. The dark story that the film was going for didn’t work out. The movie was only an hour and forty minutes. There was no time to focus and develop characters and story. It seemed as if the movie had scenes that were haphazardly cut together without any sort of flow or structure.

The director Josh Tank (Chronicle) made this look like a comic geek’s student film with a big budget. Tank came out and said that the studio forced harsh restrictions on him, but even if this movie was an hour longer I don’t think it would help. Not only is the story terrible the dialogue is cringe-worthy. The actors in this film seemed hollow and shallow. Since the dialogue is so bad I don’t think they were given anything to work with.

Now the one thing I read that gave the movie some credit was it’s special effects. There was one scene, the new dimension, that had decent effects and you see it in the trailer. The rest looked like today’s CGI techniques were used on a Windows 95.

While Fantastic Four had potential to be another great superhero flick it failed disastrously. What the film ultimately lacked was direction. The story felt forced and chopped together; and, the actors seemed unable to bring energy to their characters with the dialogue. The CGI wasn’t good and there’s not much left to have any positives. Some of it was entertaining but it was far from fantastic.

Review

Terminator Genisys shows that a modern Terminator movie still pleases. What exactly is the appeal of these movies? What has drawn us to this series, is it the cool robots? Is it the action? The compelling plots where things hang on the edge? What really draws us to these movies, which do better than virtually every other series is the primal urge that you have already experienced in your mythical things. When you glide through the night streets, like a shadow, free from all orders, from all organizations, during those moments, those tranquil moments when it’s just you and a vast open space. All you hear is far off sounds, things shimmer around, what is going on? You are back to what many daredevils have experienced for millenniums. You can taste the air as it’s thick, almost seeing the colors of it, those tiny little spiraling objects floating around that appear if you space out too long. You see the color of space in between, you taste that heavy air. You hear only what they say in music is “Breve rest”, just ” . . . “, just emptiness, but there is sound all in itself in this. This fires you up inside because we are now wolves as we’ve always been and every little step or eye movement will tell our own tales out into that beyond. you look up and see a vivid blue skyline above, you’re in the crossroads of worlds right now. That is what is so core that tapes into our urges, these characters are unconnected and do whatever in the heck they please in our city and street planet, where other movies have people part of orders, headquarters, groups, acting together, while in the Terminator movies it’s a bunch of lowly plebes cast out and having to win victorious or lose by their dust and sweat wits, and their only helpers are just loosely connected for the moment, 1-3 people or so and no one else. There is time travel trickery, there is making characters becoming like legendary icons now. The pace of the movie moves fast, there is no pondering that so many movies like to meander on.

Of course the movie is re-working a time line from the original movie The Terminator, and the only confusing moments were actually following the plot as it is being told, most of it by exposition from Terminator himself (played by Arnold of course) as he usually answers a lot of questions that are asked by the other heroes Kyle and Sarah. The plot is as one would expect re- creating a lot of the time travel stories into different angles. The heroes, Kyle, the hero from the future, and Sarah, the working class person who becomes a warrior, are a continuation from the original Terminator and are played assuredly by new faces, they are naturalistic and play their parts well caught in the element of their conflict. The movie’s main bad guy is someone that surprises you and gives another take on the series’s villains. The neutral players are as usual, the government officials who have no clue what is going on, the people in ties and police, completely surprised at what’s going on. The movie can be viewed without viewing the original Terminator because everything is self-contained here including the beginning which nicely explains and sets everything, and goes into detail, of course that is for the modern movie theater goer. I’m sure all of us have viewed the other movies. There are numerous funny moments throughout, just between the main characters toward one another, namely the human hero Kyle’s interactions with Terminator, and Sarah’s interactions with him. As well as some of the city officials who come into contact, the humor is not too much or goofy but is so nicely put in. As they say comedy is the toughest genre so adding it in here requires effort and it’s pulled off great. I myself went myself, to my right some people, to my left some couple. My eye was amazed at seeing this latest tale unravel in our modern skyscraper streets… and in particular those moments of empty worlds out there, when you are a daredevil ready to dole out exactly how things are going to be. That is the best message i got from this movie, that because it on a whim just re-creates and re-creates how things will go and nothing is set, just like we are the masters of our actions. Too much to take on our shoulders? Oh no, just think of it as we hold the invisible strands of power over us. You too can ride around a red motorbike and roll up building steps with it wearing sunglasses at night.

Review

Mike is persuaded by his past twerking buddies to take a road trip to a stripper’s convention. He has been out of the game for three years now. They have an accident and meet up with Mike’s ex.

Yeah, that sounds about right. There’s a whole lot of talking about a whole bunch of nothing. And even if I may not be the intended target audience, it really took like forty minutes before the film even gets to the goods. Those boys don’t dance around for a good while and still then, the best dancing doesn’t even come from the mates on the road trip. Channing Tatum can move but the other guys are dead weight.

Gregory Jacobs was the first assistant director on the first “Magic Mike”. He has, however, been the first AD on a few of Steven Soderbergh’s films. Now they decide to both produce a sequel where Jacobs can take the director’s chair and Soderbergh will make some real poor decisions with lighting, composition and editing. The film is so badly lit that so much of it is in darkness. And when it is lit then it’s odd. Highlighting weird features. Felt like a student film.

The characters are hardly admirable characters, perhaps they’re not meant to be. But then they sit around and talk about the difficulties of being so beautiful, how it holds them back and how connections are so difficult. It’s a little juvenile, self indulgent and boring. Then the film tries reaching for that two-hour mark to really test the idea of patience. But the characters: you have the tall Greek god type with the monster junk that no woman can handle. Then there’s the aged guy who looks like a run down version of Mickey Rourke in “The Wrestler”. He cant act and is bile-bubbling watching him strip down to a tiny G-string. This ken doll retard that actually just comes off a little weak and whiny. And the Latino guy because that shows diversity. Apparently.

The obstacles? They each have to come to terms with being ripped and beautiful (except the wrestler, he needs to come to terms with being really old). Other than that I don’t really see any obstacles.

Okay, for the good stuff. There are two-dance scenes that are really impressive. The choreography is impeccable. The first is in a secret strip club where Mike is challenged and laps up flipping and twisting women around as he bangs them, rhythmically. And the last dance where Mike and a new guy pull of an impressive reflective dance routine with two women on chairs. Channing Tatum won’t come off looking unskilled in this little drama. Jada Pinkett Smith is quite sassy as the stripping MC. And the soundtrack is pretty great. Other than that…

I want to say that this one is really for the ladies but I feel the ladies might even be disappointed with the amount of fun to be had in a film that appears to have been more fun to make. There’s ten minutes of worthy entertainment but another hundred and five minutes that you have to sift through. “Magic Mike XXL” is a weird mash up of a road-trip-dance- comp-brothel film that’s just boring.

Ill give it some points for the dancing sequences.

Review

There is a rating system in these reviews with one being awful. Well, I didn’t give it a one but it’s close to it. What is it about Seth McFarlane that studios want to give him money to make feature films? Ted 2, the sequel to Ted, did not bring a hint of laughter to me. I had watched the first film and couldn’t sit through it and never had any inclination to watch it again. Now comes Ted 2 and I did the same thing. I though at least this would make up for the first one but it didn’t. It left me humorless. With McFarlane’s Million Ways to Die in The West, I looked for the funny but sat through that epic lemon without protest. With ted 2, it’s just not funny to me. Yeah, I get the joke but these are DOA jokes. The sperm jokes were too easy to telegraph. Who didn’t see a cart of sperm falling on Mark Wahlberg must have went to get popcorn. And the dope smoking lawyer was just lazy writing. Why couldn’t she have Turrets and have ticks? McFarlane’s limited or perhaps overused range of dope, crude humor, drugs and musical dance numbers has its limits to an audience. The musical dance number just laid there for the audience. The silence was just a precursor for things to come.The next time a studio gives Seth McFarlane money to make a film, use it as toilet paper instead

Thunder buddies for life.

The story is about Ted and Tami-Lynn are married and the next step is having a baby but Ted can’t be legally regarded as a parent unless he can prove his is “human” in a court of law.

Now looking back on the first Ted movie I got say I changed my mind on it a bit and what I mean is that it wasn’t as great as I remembered it to be, but I still think it’s decent enough to give it a pass as a comedy and a film. But then I heard news about a squeal in the works and then I heard that Amanda Seyfried, Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson was in the film and that alone give me a little interest in the movie just by that movie news. I wasn’t jumping for excitement for this movie as I the movie didn’t look anything special, just squeal bait.

Now after seeing Ted 2 I’m not very impressed of what I watched, actually this movie is pretty bloated for it’s own good.

What I liked in the first Ted movie is the chemistry between Mark Wahlberg and the character Ted. They back and forward humor really worked if you would believe it, I mean a pot smoking talking teddy bear hanging around with Elliot Moore from The Happening would actually work is just beyond this world. And here they chemistry is still good just like in the first movie.

The movie did make me laugh a couple of times as that’s mainly Wahlberg and Seth chemistry in the movie and some other stuff that’s only a small little nod to a film or TV and it was funny at first until late on where they stretched out the joke to the point were it got really old and really stale very fast. But I do think this movie is way better then Seth MacFarlane last movie A Million Way to Die in the West as that movie didn’t even try and was pretty forgettable, I mean it’s been a year since that movie came out and I forgotten pretty much all of it.

What really surprise me is how messy the movie is and the movie doesn’t know what it wants to be, because these three different things going on in this movie like Ted is trying to prove that he’s a human because him and he’s wife want a baby but Ted needs to prove he’s human so he can be legally parent (Yeah I know it doesn’t make any sense, just go for it for now) oh and these a road trip in the movie and remember that stalker in the first Ted movie that kidnapped Ted well he’s back in this movie. That’s the whole movie of Ted 2 for you. Oh one last thing, Ted 2 is kind of the same as the first, I wish I can go into details of that but that would be spoiling it for some people who may have interest of seeing this movie and I’m being nice here and won’t be spoiling anything.

Before seeing this movie I thought that Amanda Seyfried wasn’t going to do anything great, I thought that she was just filling it in for the money, but I got to say that she was pretty good in the movie. She actually did something with the story and didn’t feel like a background character. She was Wahlberg worked really well with each other and Ted as well. Same thing with Morgan Freeman.

Overall Ted 2 isn’t all that great to me. As I said before about a billion of times by now you may disagree and like the movie and completely overall on what I said, again that’s fine that’s cool, enjoy what you enjoy, but I’m sticking what I put down and it won’t change anytime soon.

Review

My wife talked me into seeing this movie and boy am I glad. It had a riveting plot (sort of a thriller), respectable acting and beautiful scenery (it’s supposed to be in Texas but it isn’t). Thomas Haden Church was outstanding as the hard edged war veteran dad with haunting memories of the Gulf War. Josh Wiggins as the self absorbed younger brother does a believable portrayal of someone who finally cares about something other than himself .The theater was pretty full of mostly adults for a 10am showing and the audience spontaneously applauded at movie’s end. Highly recommended kid/dog movie ever right up there with Old Yeller. It’s full of fast paced action and is a fitting tribute to our war veterans and canine corps.

I was waiting for this film for almost 6-7 months and watched it on the opening day. It’s a good movie but I probably had high expectations. If I were the director, I would’ve made the movie differently. I would’ve started the film with a phone call to Ray or Pamela from the army saying that they have to take Max down. Then they’ll decide to visit Max and when they do there should’ve been enough reason that Max is totally out of control. I think the director failed in this aspect terribly. There was not much evidence that Max is out of control and has to be taken down. The decision to take him down didn’t justify the visualization at all. And Justin didn’t have to give too much effort to bond with him either. I thought it’s gonna be everyone’s film, instead it was a kid film. Anyway, I will still give 10 for such an adorable dog, Max.

But it can’t help itself. Depending on how you yourself feel about dogs, the movie tends to go back and forth from the cheesiest thing I ever seen, to the most bad ass.

I saw this movie White Dog earlier this year and similar to that film they turn a dog into an action hero. A surprising thing to do in this day and age considering the action sequences in the movie made me concern that PETA would be all over their backs.

I think what I like most about the movie is that the film is more for the whole family. It was not really advertise as a kids thing per say most likely cause the action is pretty real and not cartoonish (accept when the dog is concern which cannot be help).

But the movie is cheese. It’s another film that exploits America’s unconditional love for our troops. Plus all the standard cliché’s of a movie like this seemed even more one dimensional. The protagonist who was a troubled kid did not convince me that he was troubled and his relationship with his love interest seemed forced.

Otherwise, the only real reason to see this movie is to watch the dog prove how easy it is to be an action star.

Let me just throw this out there: Inside Out is easily the best Pixar film in years. Inside Out is not just the best in the last few years, but it will without a doubt stand alongside the best of the best the studio has to offer. It’s a really tough thing to rank Pixar, because they have had such stellar track record, and so it really boils down to which animated masterpiece is your favorite. Do you love the nostalgia of the original Toy Story, or how about how Finding Nemo swept us away? We can argue The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E and Up are the best that Pixar has to offer…Inside Out is going to further complicate that favorite status for a lot of people.
Inside Out is about a little girl named Riley, and the story takes place during a time when her family makes a great move from her Minnesota home town to San Francisco. For anyone who has ever moved at a young age, they may recall emotional hurdles trying to adjust to living in a new home, new location, a new school and making new friends. It can be a lot to ask for to a child. That is what this movie is about, and Pixar tells this story on parallel planes both from Riley’s humanistic world and the very emotions that exist within her head.
Riley’s brain is bonkers. Never have I expected to see such surrealistic imaginative settings for a Pixar film. Unlike every film the studio has made to date, Inside Out creates a slate that breaks all logical boundaries. We are talking about a world that is as vast as your very own imagination, and Pixar takes full advantage of that by making truly out-there and brilliant possibilities.
Inside Out is a movie about emotions, and it would not be a success if the movie itself did not feel emotional. This is probably the most emotional Pixar film to date, but as a roller coaster that goes through its highs and lows, and it makes sure you are along for the ride.
At the end of the day, once you see the full picture of Inside Out you will understand the true context and all the metaphors toward life it has to share. This is easily the most complex and layered Pixar film to date, and in a way it sets a new bar for Pixar’s maturity at telling captivating stories that anyone can relate to no matter what the age is.

Review

The trailer was a great visual feast but it doesn’t show the scale of the movie and how excellent it is. 3 kids from Inglewood, CA, a town we’re usually not asked to care about, have to wise up about drug dealing. I actively tried to find a bad performance, and I couldn’t find a single one. Unlike many other “black” films, this one has comedic elements and tries to get you to laugh using memes and potty humor. Typically, this would carry a negative connotation, but in the case of this movie it is excellently executed and the pace is so quick that you don’t even care how juvenile it is. I encourage everyone to watch this movie when it releases in June, specifically on the 19th. I’m sure it won’t have the story it did at Sundance, however. Open Road may change a few elements of the story, which would be a shame. I’m giving this one a 9/10, just in case the movie isn’t as good as it once was at Sundance, so bear that in mind.

Quickie Review:

After the events of Jurassic Park, 22-years ago, Isla Nublar now hosts the original vision of a functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World. To keep the public interest and raise the visitor rates, the corporation engineer a new breed of dinosaur, Indominus Rex (I-Rex). Meddling with genetic research once again puts the park and people in danger when the I-Rex breaks loose. Jurassic World while not living up to the Spielberg’s classic, stands strong on its own merits. The new I-Rex is a great new addition to the roster of scary dinosaurs and the CGI is very well done. There are some sub- plots that don’t fit well, but the overall story is a thrill ride with both horror and action. Jurassic World is a great summer- blockbuster monster fun.

Full Review:

While I was looking forward to Jurassic World, the trailers left me only cautiously optimistic. I had quite a few doubts about the movie: genetic splicing of different dinosaur species, trained raptors, over-reliance on CGI. It all seemed too different from Jurassic Park. After watching the movie all my apprehensions were thrown out the window because different is exactly what Jurassic World needed.

Let’s start with the star/villain of the movie, I-Rex. The perfect word to describe her is terrifying. The sheer size of her in every aspect, jaw, feet, claws, if you saw her running towards you, to quote the movie “The kids? This will give their parents nightmares.” Which is perfect! Because that’s an essential part of what Jurassic Park was, a horror. It’s not just the physicality of the dinosaur but the way she moves, thinks, and takes advantage of her spliced nature that added a lot to her being an insurmountable threat. A lot of the dinosaurs were CGI even for close-ups but it never pulled me out of the movie. The computer visual effects were very well polished, and I am saying that as a huge fan of practical effects where possible. In fact, the dinosaur designs were so well done I’d say they had more personality than most human characters in other movies.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard were also very good in the movie. As much I loved Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy as Star- Lord, I didn’t want him to play the same character again. Luckily he doesn’t and still is a badass. He showed that with the way he interacted with the raptors and the way he’d improvise to get out of a difficult situation. I’d like to reassure you that the way the raptors are trained makes complete sense in the context of the movie. They are still dangerous animals, not completely tamed, so their scenes with Pratt hold a lot of tension. Pratt and the rest of the cast including the kids Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson are not completely humourless. There are some good jokes here and there that keep the movie from becoming completely dreary.

There are few small issues I do have with the movie but the subplots in particular is what bothered me the most. This is the second time in two weeks there is a movie with a divorce subplot. But the way it is handled in Jurassic World is even worse because it never really affects the story or the characters significantly. There are also other story arcs that are not executed well and so feel out of place. I can’t say much else without spoiling the movie but if these subplots were trimmed off, Jurassic World may have been a more well- rounded film.

I have to say I really enjoyed my time with Jurassic World. Like for many others Jurassic Park means a lot to me, it’s the first Hollywood movie I remember from my childhood. Director Colin Trevorrow did an excellent job in honouring the classic while introducing us to something new. When you watch the movie, you can tell this was a movie made by a fan (a very talented one too) for the fans. By the end of the movie I was applauding it. So if you have your doubts like I did, go watch it, because I’m sure it’ll surprise you.

Review

I was frankly not very interested in watching Spy, because I had the feeling it was going to be a female version of the atrocious Paul Blart: Mall Cop, or something like that; but after having read many positive reviews about it, I decided to risk myself… and the result ended up being better than I expected, even though the general reaction this movie provoked on me can be described as “meh”. The main attribute from Spy is the solid performance from Melissa McCarthy, who was able to create a realistic and detailed character which elevates the film and makes the predictable jokes work better than what the insipid screenplay would deserve. However, that occasionally generates a marked inconsistency in scenes which start as a comedy and end as weak drama incompatible with the “fish outside the water” humorous routines. In other words, director and screenwriter Paul Feig wasn’t able to balance the comedy formula with the “serious” elements. I think I would have preferred Spy to be a lighter and more accessible action comedy, or an espionage movie which takes itself seriously, without losing its sense of humor. The problem is that Spy never defines its purpose, and attempts to be two things at the same time without being very satisfactory in either of both aspects. However, as I previously said, the main thing which makes Spy moderately entertaining despite its mediocrity is McCarthy’s performance; as a comedienne, she displays spark and warmth; and as an action heroine, she’s simultaneously incongruent and credible. And despite the fact that they weren’t given very substantial material to work with, I also liked the performances from Jason Statham, Rose Byrne and Miranda Hart. I think that, with a more precise focus and a less generic story (I barely paid attention to the affair of the bombs, the terrorists, etc.), Spy would have been quite a competent espionage film; but the addition of comedy elements alters the centre of gravity of the screenplay, provoking an instability which substantially affects the film. On the other hand, I don’t know whether the general audience would accept McCarthy as an action figure without the extenuating factor of comedy. It seems unfair to think like that, but reality isn’t fair… and Hollywood reality doesn’t even know that word. That’s why we ended up seeing Chris Hemsworth playing a geek hacker this year.

Review

The day before I saw this I read it was a prequel which made me so mad because we’re gonna get a fourth one to continue where #2 left off. Anyway, this movie is very unnecessary to the plot of the trilogy, it adds nothing. It seems to answer questions you never would’ve asked like “How does Elise know that dice guy from Chapter 2?” or “How did Elise meet those two ghost hunting guys?”. This movie basically adds more character development to Elise, even though we got plenty to work with from the first movie. To me, Chapter 2 felt like a Psycho ripoff with a kid being forced to be a girl, then grow up to be a serial killer while being dressed as a woman. With this, it feels like a X-Men: Days of Future Past ripoff with Elise not wanting to use her powers when she was younger (i.e. Professor X not wanting to use his powers when he was younger). At least the ripoff part wasn’t heavily put in like it was with Chapter 2. One good thing about this movie is that it brought back the creepy factor and improved it from the first movie, while Chapter 2 abandoned it and was a generic horror/thriller movie. One thing that made me mad was the beef with the Bride in Black from the other movies. Since it’s a prequel, of course we would probably see the Bride in Black back but the reason why he/she is back is stupid. The reason is because he/she swears Elise will die by his/her hand, which makes sense since she does at the end of the first movie, and we can assume the Bride is mad because in the flashback in Chapter 2 Elise stops the Bride from taking over Josh’s body. But before seeing this movie, the Bride killing Elise was justified because Elise found out at the end of the first movie that Josh wasn’t really Josh and she would’ve warned Josh’s family, we didn’t need this pile up to the Bride’s hatred toward Elise. Also, why can’t we get a real demon again in these movies. The true definition of a demon is a creature that was never alive. In Chapters 2 and 3, the antagonists aren’t demons but are called demons. They are really just evil spirits of past souls. The only real demon in this series is the Darth Maul ripoff character from the first movie. I’m just saying this so people can know the difference. Another good thing about this movie is rare in prequels, you can actually watch in the order of 3, 1, and 2. Usually in prequels, there would be parts in them that would require you watching the previous movie(s) that was released. Example: Paranormal Activity 2 tells you when it takes places before Micah dies in the middle of the movie. This would be a spoiler for you if you didn’t see the first movie and decided to watch the movies in chronological order (3,2,1,4,5). But with this movie, the info from the other movies come off like inside jokes rather then spoilers to some viewers who didn’t see the other 2 movies. So if you’re one of those people who want to watch film series’ in chronological order, this one is a safe bet.

Full Review:
I have never seen a single episode of Entourage. Still, I must admit the trailer sold me on the movie and I was highly anticipating it. Unfortunately, I was left more confused as to what the point of the movie was. So you’ve been warned that this review comes from someone who has no idea what the show is like.
Though I didn’t like the movie, I did enjoy some of the characters. Jeremy Piven as Ari Gold was hilarious. He has a no B.S. attitude most of the time and speaks his mind directly. Conversely it is also funny to see when he needs to shut his mouth to get what he needs. Billy Bob Thornton and Haley Joel Osment play father and son who are two key financiers for Ari’s movie. They too have great comedic chemistry, and steal most of the scenes they are in. Haley Joel Osment has surprisingly good comedic timing. I haven’t seen him in much but in this movie he plays the creepy rich guy who gets what he wants in an amusing way.
The biggest problem for me as a new-comer to this property is that the movie felt like it was two or three episodes from a random season of the show. There are all these references and backstory that I feel like I need to know. Of course I understand that this movie is catered more for the fans of the show, but if a movie wants a wider audience then it should retain a wider appeal. On top of that the premise of the movie makes it seem like there is some kind of conflict, but it is all resolved with a series of cameos from stars. Same goes for the individual story arcs. So there is no need to worry whether the main characters will succeed or not because some freak incident will occur and it will all work out in the end. So I didn’t care for the characters one bit because the entire movie is as shallow and one note as the characters themselves.
If you are not fan of the show or never seen it, this is not a movie for you. At the same time if you are fan of the show I have a feeling you won’t love this movie either. I say this because I went to watch this movie with a friend who watched the show and he also admits it felt like 2 or 3 bad episodes from the show. So overall I’d say skip it for the cinema, but if you’d really like to watch it, give it a shot on TV.

In the aftermath of a massive San Francisco earthquake, a rescue pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to save his family.
Dwayne Johnson is charming and manly as always, playing the pilot who saves his estranged wife Carla Gugino from a crumbling tower and together set out to find their daughter, delivering cheesy one liners along the way. Their daughter, played by Alexandra Daddario, is on a journey of survival as she befriends Hugo Johnstone-Burt and his younger brother. Meanwhile Paul Giamatti, along with Archie Punjabi’s news team, try to understand the earthquake’s movements and warn the city in order to save lives, with cliché dialogue that is now expected from these kind of films. San Andreas keeps a focus on these characters, with some time for Ioan Gruffudd and his strange sudden shift from likable step-dad to a cowardly survivor who meets a timely death. Kylie Minogue makes a cameo… but to zero affect.
The silly but exhilarating action sequences are worth the price of admission, especially the boat race over the tsunami and destruction of the Golden Gate Bridge. Overall it’s nothing we haven’t seen before from modern disaster films, with a family drama played out alongside stunning but repetitive special effect sequences.

San Andreas keeps a focus on these characters, with some time for Ioan Gruffudd and his strange sudden shift from likable step-dad to a cowardly survivor who meets a timely death. Kylie Minogue makes a cameo… but to zero affect.

The silly but exhilarating action sequences are worth the price of admission, especially the boat race over the tsunami and destruction of the Golden Gate Bridge. Overall it’s nothing we haven’t seen before from modern disaster films, with a family drama played out alongside stunning but repetitive special effect sequences.

In short: The effects are great, the story was good, character connection was hollow, the closer you got to the end of the movie the more rushed it got (the ending was so rushed it left me wondering what just happened?), would love to see a directors cut.
The movie started off good, then I started to realise a lack of character emotional connection and a bit of a hollow lack of detail and feeling. Then it started to get the feeling they were skipping character, plot etc details and trying to move the story on as fast as they could, and as things got faster and faster your connection with the characters got less and less. Only to be revived once in a while by a forced emotional scene. By the end either the writer either just gave up or they edited to ensure they fitted in to 4.3 seconds. The end left me thinking, well, what? what just happened?
It could have been so much more, more time and detail needed to go into the characters and the story needed to evolve more naturally and not be pushed/rushed. Could have even split it up into 2 movies, allowing us to explore the characters worlds more and to connect with them better.
A good watch despite what I’ve mentioned, just could have been so much more, like so many movies these days.

Cameron Crowe is one of my favorite directors. He never fails to put a smile on my face, even if it’s my 15th time watching the same film of his (Almost Famous). But with ‘Aloha’, it doesn’t seem like his film at all. In fact, at times the film seems as though it’s 3 different projects jumbled into one. Aloha was one of my most anticipated films this year, and with a cast that includes the likes of Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, and Emma Stone, I didn’t think there was any way this film would let me down. Boy, I was wrong. The trailer was fantastic. It had great music, great character drama, and a beautiful landscape, that’s the makings of a great Crowe film. Unfortunately it was a bland and forgettable as a film can be. If you cant get a good film with all of the great things on your side, than there’s something going on here.

I heard there was some serious behind the scene issues with Aloha. Ones that took Crowe out of the promoting of the film and even Sony’s lack of marketing for the project. I mean there was only one trailer, ONE. Movies these days spit out at least 3-4 trailers per film with upwards of 5-7 TV spots. Sony has had a lot of trouble both in and out of their film branch, so I’m not overly surprised by the behind the scene issues. I just hope that it wasn’t a situation of Crowe not being able to make the film he wanted to. If the blu-ray comes along with a new and improved directors cut than I will probably have a better idea of how to score the film. But for now, it was a complete mess. It tells the story of a military contractor who returns to Hawaii where he reconnects with his long lost love and simultaneously meeting the new fling in his life. It’s a hard film to review because there are many plot points and situations that just didn’t seem like things that a seasoned director would put in a movie in an actual theatre. I will say that there are moments of Crowe greatness but it’s so rare that it gets lost in the mess of love triangle. I never bought into the Emma Stone-Bradley Cooper fling. I saw a reviewer talk about how her character thinks she’s in a Will Ferrell comedy at first until toning it down later on, and that’s completely true. The two seem like they are playing characters from different movies and somehow their dialogue matched up.

I will say that I don’t believe the film deserved the whitewash criticism as much as it got. There’s no question that the main cast is all white and could have been more diverse, but Hawaiians are present in the film throughout, they’re just not the leads. But the thing that most bothered me was the lack of human emotion and heart to the film. Crowe often creates great characters who I believe to be sharing moments with each other. Here, the characters are simply all in a Hawaii at the same time and happen to do things that somewhat relate to one another. The whole side story of setting up satellites with Bill Murray was a waste of time. I think if the film focused on Cooper’s past with Rachel McAdams, who Is the best part of the film, rather than forcing us into a relationship with Emma Stone, it would have been much better. I love Emma Stone as much as the next guy but the chemistry just wasn’t there. Plus, the way the characters are written, Cooper is much better off going after a woman like McAdams than Stone. Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin have some laugh worthy moments but the trailer sold the film much differently. I got the sense that Murray would play a man that helps Cooper get through his past and look to start a new future. And that John Krasinski would play the funny jealous husband. But instead Murray’s character has no common sense and Krasinski is cringe worthy as he tries to his best cool guy impression. But there is a really sweet story underneath the rest of the film. Cooper and McAdams are really good here, and the reveal towards the latter half of the film gave the depth it needed. It was just too late for me. And then where the characters end up was too cliché for my liking. I was really disappointed with this one. Just another big letdown in 2015.

+Cooper & McAdams

+Reveal sweetens the story

-Character decisions are laughable

-Stone’s misplaced tone

-No heart

-Pacing issues

-Feels like 3 different films into one

Review

Premiering in this year’s Sundance Film Festival’s US Dramatic Competition, Andrew Bujalski’s new dramedy Results is equal parts heartfelt, witty, and genuinely hilarious. Featuring standout performances from Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders and Kevin Corrigan, the film tells the story of the Power 4 Life gym, owned and managed by Trevor (Guy Pearce). He dreams of opening up a new location and branching out his business a bit to rival his competitors. Who knows, maybe a future location downtown might even have an on-site juice bar or a new yoga room? Trevor’s business plans get mixed up with that of Kat (Cobie Smulders) his coworker who has taken on a new ultra-wealthy client Danny (Kevin Corrigan) who is set on getting back in shape at any cost. The results (no pun intended) of these eccentric characters’ lives being mixed together creates some highly entertaining scenarios, like when Danny develops a crush on Kat and tries to bribe her with marijuana, or when Kat and Trevor have spontaneous late night drinks with rival gym owner Gregory (Anthony Michael Hall).
Bujalski’s work is infamous for being a mash up of vinaigrettes that encompass an overall story, and Results has received its fair share of criticism for not having an even tone. I panned Bujalski’s previous film, Computer Chess for that every reason upon my first viewing. After some thought however, and a much-needed second viewing, I realized Bujalski’s dedication to small details and his ability to avoid clichés and tropes makes him one of the most exciting indie directors out there. The writing in Results is near-perfect; you get a sense that these aren’t just movie characters, but living and breathing people with their own set of complicated romantic desires and needs, and Bujalski captures them like a fly on the wall at their very best (and worst) moments.
Besides being Bujalski’s most commercial and most accessible film, Results might also be his funniest. It’s a fantastic and witty film – the kind of thing you would expect Wes Anderson or Woody Allen to come up with – one with such fresh energy and endearing characters hard not to like. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those looking for some lighthearted-but- complex storytelling should look no further.

Budget and unemployment issue mean that the Bowen family – Dad Eric, Mom Amy, and kids Kendra, Griffin and Madison – have to downsize to what appeared to me to be a fairly sizeable house, albeit rather marred by the supernatural manifestations. Things go bump in the night, terrifying already timid son Griffin, and centring on Madison, the youngest. After she is kidnapped by her closet and held prisoner in the TV, the family calls in specialist help.
A friend of mine wondered why they only remake successful films – surely unsuccessful films merit remaking more? And here comes a perfect example to illustrate the folly of remaking successful movies. The 1982 Poltergiest, directed by Tobe Hooper and produced by Steven Spielberg, was an excellent movie. It didn’t need remaking. And now along comes a remake. Had the original version never existed, this would have been a perfectly acceptable horror movie. But the original does exist, and this remake brings little new to the table. The main story beats are the same, some of the manifestations are different, but it is essentially the same movie, and not done as well – despite the best efforts of the cast, it lacks heart.
You might enjoy it if you’ve never seen the original – heck, you might enjoy it even if you have – but it’s all a bit pointless.
And if you’re not actually going to do anything worthwhile with the 3D, why bother?

Review

I’ve never read the novel on which this is based but decided to give the film a try seeing as it featured the always very watchable Carey Mulligan and a screenplay by David Nicholls (One Day).

It may not please everyone but I think the director has managed to create a strong love story that allows the central character to develop throughout the two hour run. Mulligan captures every aspect of the character well and despite her making lots of bad choices we still stick by her.

Michael Sheen does well in his role and there are plenty of twists that kept me on the edge of my seat.

In this age of franchises and big blockbuster superhero nonsense it is refreshing that this film manages to tell a good story with a wonderful cast and hopefully will be enjoyed by many.
