A master stroke by Kubrik to expose these concepts to the masters of evil ? like you and me, the sinners in mans natural process in humanities progression.

It`s a great classic contemporary film with plenty of art deco and artistic violence springing the hormohns into stimulated action for the sexual connotations and act displayed in rude boy artistic fashion.

The early life and struggle of a rouge in a gang of criminally violent hoodlums whos up against himself his victims his partners and a judicial system that uses mentel brainwashing techniques to restrain and convert the young man, eventually useless to the ways of the world locked in a punishment (some forces of society oppose) for the remainder his knowledge of himself stays true to his ?memory? and the ?triggers? that restrain him. A mind over matter the likes of ?The Bourne Identity? or ?Men in Black? little red light wand over their victims to forget/unlearn certain events relating to the process of radical reform, that is easily subdued by the hand that delt it.

This a scientific project opposed morally by the the good doctor ?. , for its possible repoccusions if delt in miraculous impact from a direction of ill intent or by the hands of sole benefit only ?without the rest of the universe.

The sound is better this time round, displaying increased funding or just innovation hence the reflecive lack of alteration/remastering for the second feature productio of this grander mainstreem version of the cult series.

There was a good amount galactic intersteller warefare using federation fleet starships, leading to an exciting climactic cliffhanger and the sad loss of important crew members of the famous U.S.S. Enterprise on it`s quest to 'boldly go where no person has gone befor'

Terminator Salvation 2009,  PG-13)
Terminator Salvation
viewed again updated...
Good though I was caught up with bales acting after his outbursts on set. His expression was a bit too rehersed in places, too much sounding like a accent more than war stricken exertion. Too timeless epic like though was the required over done for this slightly better than average installment.

The sEts were great, though minimal in an overal worldly way for... 'the results from judgment day', pitty. Though the 'call in' on the bell huey radio with all the scorched giant radio dish towers in the rear view c.g. was epic and funny, massively cool act.

Still on the actors characters... I guess, the moongood role was best I thought... (super hot shot,overall character,top gun.... all over everthing) and 'she' almost pulled it off, adding only the hint of romance (in practice for me heh heh)

Sam Worthington on is just a super everyday strong 'whats going on landing/finding himself in this mess of a future', bringing you along with him (for first time terminator fans... it has been literally decades-scary) which was thought out well in writing but the direction.... of setting christian bales charactor - Conner, apart, on his platform of superiorority from the others. even as an everyday solderr with a wife ect. He dos'nt give a 'b-grade couldnt afford any other decent actors', feel to it but melds him with the prophetic legend of John. Conner that really only the script portrays at this time frame. Is missing somthing there...?

Epic film of miniscule proportions if there is one. Weird iknow but highly recommend none the less

The most awesome complete movie experience of its time. Scared the cripes out of me then, funnier now as an adult but halerious as a young teen, reworked visually now and with a remaster audio its a pleasure to view. Sci-fi/fantasy elements but very little action just the adventure of it all

Star Trek - First Contact
This was only so good as the motion ictiure as we knew it had again evolved for this kind of feature again when thing so unattainable once upon a time have become the norm. again through series after series of sucessful sci-fi story telling to present us with a feast of entertainment if you`ve come to love the new guys as much as me. The borg are definitivly Boring but along side Cpt. Piccards knowledge of them and data the action man into everything (impressive) awhile describing/displaying human emtions vallantly after it killing his brother as I recall with a emotion chip and very subtle humour shining alight the struggle for peace and the savior of humanity never befor being so grave it rocks through a little light hearted down on the away team for my liking and Cpt Waroff comes across too deliberatly untrust worthy as we know his race has come to a peacefull resolution Donkies years befor.

The starship assault on the Borg. Cube near the star of the film reigns supreem and lifts this film immensely as it needed it come the final moments. Everything is so much more intelligent instead of intelectual inuendos, so yeah by this time I could safly think the old guys and their series sucked ? immensly but I stay loyal for the worlds of trekie possibilities available.

A minimalism artisticpiece,yet its about the internal runnings of a complex executive networking compitor system, a bit like 'Innerspace' for the P.C.

So Basic and Fundamentle its plain to see Walt Disney's love for growth to absorb knowledge for the audience... at any age, even a Zombie druggo could get it, wow the eigties man. Found a lot of synonomous innuendos and body language only to step back from it and enjoy as a Disney picture.

There's great direction throughout, and the know how elements for a potential cult film that's both 'elusive' and very 'right there it is' at times.

The technicalities, you gotta just go with it or too technical for those day's or at least nieve ppls about this kinda technology, a lot easier these days to follow all the jargon an smooth to view.

The graphics also a so basic to see the internal cyber relm not distracting one away from this but fitting enough for the required difference.

Aliens 1986,  R)
Aliens
The best action sci sequal produced out of the classic "going it solo action eighties". A long time comming after the smash'79 cult thriller 'Alien', I don't know anyone whom hasn't seen this film that gave Sigorny Weaver more than the glamour support profile. A must see.

I can remember around the table tennis table talking Dad into letting us see (on brand new VHS cassette we which still couldn't get over limited to regional t.v. only) and at primary school age it was the scrariest movie since 'superman' lol (I was too young for 'empire strikes back' kinda kid)

The story so simple ...awakening from deep cryogenic sleep in the emergency jetessen craft, 'Ripley' is;
--interigated about the incedents of the first film by excecutive representation of 'the company'
--informed of the settlement of the alien crash site planet by our human settler folk
--and then the forthcomming info of a loss of contact with them requireing an away mission to recon./rescue the settlers and survey alien contact, along with which she is invited as an advisor.

Character intros with the grunt military esourt team picks up the atmosphere of the rest of the film provoking funny feelings of blunt bravardo and sinceir human survival technique's attitudes and abilities along with a chain of command protocol and awesome tech upgrades on all equipment and surrounds.

Thrilling action ensues along with the daunting brute superior force of the alien species given the circumstances, and it's continuing scientific awe given the biological composition by the away teams intelligence contingent. But in contrast to the set character provoked kick ass only atmoshere by playing on anyones compassionate/nurturing side with the discovery of a settlement folk survivor, a young defenceless girl named Newt, played by child actress Carrie Henn, not brilliantly but sufficient for the concience effort by the director to provide your own intencity of viewing for the remainder of the confrontation with this scurge of a critter fondly named 'alien' by millions.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon 2011,  PG-13)
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) Directed by: Michael Bay PG-13, 2 hr. 30 min. Release Date: June 29, 2011 Pre-viewing review:Id like to say I wanna see it but this is just going through the motions now. Prove me wrong m.bay. I gotta say this was nothing short of spectacular, a scale model dream of their home planet to start the CG feast. Cybertron and the missing Autobot spacecraft 'The Ark' was the sub-plot enough to base the story and the title on but again the diversity of the animation intent on an explosion of your senses did not fail to get the ball rolling. Covering the Decepticons ill will on the home planet. But the deception is at a record high towards the viewer with this film, bringing your observation of time and a process that left out Sam`s families discoveries, his new found sidekicks along with it - left in the dust. The superficial characterising from the previous movie`s was`nt shy this time extending to the storyline(s), staying quite shallow leaving your observation skills fine tuned if not thoroughly exhausted. It just seemed M.Bay this time did`nt hold back with story lines, (erratic-unconnected much) not developing them much but important none the less. Only 2.5 hours could have been chopped into 2 or 3 episodes for my attention to distractions (plus the 3D if you caught it) So i was in it for the feast and further 'at home viewings in comfort' to come for all that trollop. Where it lacked anywhere (a missing 'miss Fox') else though (and yes Carly Miller has a Gorgeous Smile Too)_ it made up for in a support cast, all very shallow keeping consistent with this minimalism technique, though pushing on further with Sam ("his witts are in his Willy") Whitwicky and his character development on actually being something more, something special, a hero. So the new friends were forged and may come and go as cameo`s but tight, i mean tight, gravity defying positions are pressed onto you :`) but depth to the characters is so not there, even whitWilly is hard to find ...yet. I do disagree with the masses critically to date, setting it above many a film on the 3D feast alone, with more to come and a favourite recent release (hype charged) favourite to date (closely behind the HP7, the two part smash). Fully enjoyable watch, Highly 3D recommended experience

Léon (The Professional) (1994)

R, 1 hr. 49 min.
Release Date: November 18, 1994

catch up review: At a time of innovation in direction when i remember Tarrentino making a big break, (i was exiting high school year prior-ten foot tall and full of shit) i see this masterpiece of action and characterization at work. A film come cult classic, known to me then and released as 'the professional' (prob the reason for it`s namesake addition Leon: ect). So cool man.

theres somthing really relatable in this character Jean Reno plays at a basic sense level like the "synergy" a plant would have with everything around it, he too has character portrayal in a exhibition of grandeur for an expectant action flick of not much noteriety.

Predators 2010,  R)
Predators
Awsome, absolutly good to see. So repeated its funny, in more ways than 'one' but oustanding performances from leads to the predators themselves, the hulking brutes are portrayed a little more instinctive and dumder/narrow minded (as a race, not participating in a rite of passage to bigger cultural things or a chosen sporting interest with bravehood type rewards), advancing technologicaly driven by triumph from the hunt for the hunt and lacking in anything we couldn't best. Limited by only what's around, and the natural reactions, 'observed' or 'provoked from entrapment' or 'otherwise', of a lesser inferior being.

The story done to death, and the script quoted/plagerized (like i've not seen befor) from the 1987 smash hit original film staring Arnold the Schwarzenegger though as a follow on not a renewal.

The only thing left is a commercial version of these war games to succed the fiction stories mainstreem, because like grappling at a good idea this is a strange way to go about a francaise of this kind for a third installment. Its both succesive, renewd old and so inconclusive so-as to possibly begin the series again from yet another angle.

Between "Aliens" and this "round-a-bout follow up" there seems to be a free for all with what to do with features in this way, ...or 'Particularly' not in a 'succesive style' at all, drawing new ideas to writing/directing 'the motion picture'. Probably from the pressures of indi film marketing/exposure, a plethora of up and comming out of work talent and moral standards from by gone days needing re-evaluation according to relitive applicability/acceptance??.

So in any case this one worked for me, top marks.

this i have to rate with an extra half star because of what it would be up against if it was released under my critical view today.

I just found that i had`nt yet seen the Hannibal films and thought they might tide me over because of the fact i dont watch enough horror, much, living alone mwahaha ha. Get your dose! lol

I`m also a big jodie forster fan and apart from this scaring the shit outta me in high school it was on the shelf for many more viewings with a fair following of exitment each time. Spooky! little gore, lots-a suspense!. Where are the thrillers today

This was great the first time and as I just watched it again with the sequal in readiness for the third installment, was as ever impressed as i could fathom i was then. And the enevitable story within a story as with just abt every tale involving that time or civilization, to tell the world how it is as these human abominations proove lifes progression through aided trial and error, heh, we`re only human hehe. Adored Rachel Weisz and may add her as a fav for action genre for the hand combat if it was her lol

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1
Deathly Hollows I

Directed by: David Yates
Release Date: November 19 2010

Really Good for a t.b.c. I new there were two parts but couldn't wait, wasn't disappointed in any way and couldn't fault it, could hardly keep up with it all in retrospect with the distractions of the cinima but hey that's also part of the bad luck that day (we had a big electrical storm aswell kinda right at time to go to movies-freaky).

I arrived inside the theatre late, having left my ticket on the empty cafe table at bottom of stairs duh! but the ticket girl believed me and announced my delema to the usher, (the other usher found it, thts why I couldn't find it) subsequently i entered as Professor Snape was mounting the stairs to Voldemorts meeting worsening my feeling I missed it all, trying to recollect the picture for review now but... I can't imagine anything occured, could anyone tell me I did miss a scene right there. ??

Anyway it was good to see all thier friends help at the start disappear quickly enough and the trio set off on, more of a quest, this time like a fantasy novel staple requires. And the fight scene within ranks separating them up a bit, not too extravigent but more true to life in these circumstances than previously. I have stated in these H.P. films reviews of mine that the unique matter in which they are brought to us visually is both different in its own right and fullfilling for such a long saga spanning the growth of the actors and the fans alike with subject matter to go on with.

Talismen and mementos are great for these kinds of kids, a little older and none less over it all as other kids may well be but each to their own. The horcuxs and references to the graves of mentors, camping in woods ect is all sorta morally good too for em. Grow up 'the different kids' is a good way to explain it, all togeather now.

So a great watch for mine and now unbeleivably can't wait more so for the second, bring it on.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 2011,  PG-13)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2
(Pre-viewing review) This should be good and instead of waiting ...I might just make it my first 'Harry Potter read' to wind up my sept/oct. 2010 effort in viewing the each film in the entire series for the first time (except prisoner of azkerban. 'BCC-multiplex, gold class' cinima release)

(Post viewing review) ...from above, Nah havent read a novel let alone a series since abt 2005 lol, didnt do that but to make this review a different one ..just some basic critical acclaim ...

(like as if I just walked out of the midnight premier after a pre-screening of HP-7 (cinima repeat)) ..no joke 9pm-2:30am, 4 hrs of Deathly Hollows. I packed a beer and a block of chocolate is that normal??

Anyway i was going to write up as the best movie i'd ever seen and it goes close but i just can't recall how well it spliced as an individual film from the first part, but no matter kicks the first ones ass and that was great no doubt :p, though through its sheer complexities it goes up, around, down and back again.
"it was a good movie".

That said, all they could have done to make it any better would be to like, level Hogwarts or somthing hehe. But no really the ages and consistant character throughout the series topped off so well with some quirky and not so nice villans and a relm/the world of harry potter couldn't be more missed from now on.

High points were the 3-D was minimal but realizing you gotta be swithched on for it so much (off and on) when it comes around, its tricky different ways in which it was used made it better than any enhancements I'd seen to date. Definatly a 3-D cinima version must see, a real experience and feast for the senses. I put it so highly recommended I like to buy both chapters to keep.

Just loved the little story around 'the three brothers of the Deathly Hollows' (part one) that I thought I remind it to you befor you go and see as it is a cinima release then its gone from the big screen, watch the part I First : ) experience part II 3-D definatly

Awesomely wicked film. Viewed at VmaX 3D, james cammeron did not disappoint me with this alien epic. Set on a forrest planet ripe for havest, a relm...


SPOILER...
(The natives curious world, exessable by the human scientists via a very advanced control over created bodies copied off the natives, grown/created... (a stem cell doco came in handy) ...for use as the size/strength, agility, and lungs (just a avatar like sub-matter under thier dreamstate like control, from sleep/alternitive concious chambers.) Are much more suitable for the planets documentations/discoveries.


...dominated by super synergy life forms and a native alien race so much in touch with it that the military supported harvesting/mining expiditions are studying it/them to an infinate degree... their ways, powers, and thier co-existance of a close relationship to the super cool and unpredictable fauna awell as flora.

Worthingtpn plays a twin brother to a soldier, who's in depth with his training of both thier language and of their habitat, for the away teams capability to first hand research the remarkable planet. This raw opportunity (as he is not his brother -not a spoiler)... is his pathway to expierience with the scientific away team, relitivley unversed but trusted by superiors and versatile enough to possibilities through instincts when confronted with eminent dangers a field thrusted into adventure all while vlogging all discoveries and contact.

From fantasy, adventure, romance to all out battle assults this is. .. . i let you decide.

me... This has some of the best CG and scene footage work I've ever seen put togeather in the same camera angles or pans. In 3D glasses (still rude) it's impossible to see where the lines are drawn but I can say... very fast paced combat in the field, ground opps and aerial sequences plus an array of focased apperture to give you a headache if you don't just relax your optics and let them lead your beady little observations hehe all ove the screen. .. 3D is great, has come a long way, can't wait to see again. Enjoy!

Shutter Island 2010,  R)
Shutter Island
2010 Woe brilliant. Deceptivly good as the film unfolds in entirity. I guess he does these heavey cops in the american way,left wing or private life (not work) more than rather well and follows up with the worst case possible senerios better than most ... see casino, goodfellas,the departed for instance both sides of the law but with the exposed criminal mind, as we view it, that not only a wiseguy could relate to.

Anyway a very dreamy movie for almost half the film with intensive characterization and background on the medical treatment in those days of the criminally insane institutions, situational insanity from war (murderous events) and physicians (and nurses) alter-ego or their direct contact with the insane as an educated mind subduing it for the purpose of study.

A couple of u.s. marshals investigating a patients diappearence at the most notorious criminally in sane facility in post war 50's Boston, apparent reputable dealings withese loose nuts without ther bolts on. Island completly devoid of the mainland plus even more so as a hurricane strikes and along with expience in this very field a personal chip on th shoulder of one of the marshals, teddy (decaprio) for a patient/inmate that's responsible for the event that took the life of his wife and others in a fire at his home.

The investigation has its hiccups and sinister inconsistancies but twists and with some thrilling suspense, winds its way through the intire islands nooks and time lost crannies really in the end finding heartfelt compassion for people with less regard for violence and victims, because of losses and atrocities than society will allow to go unpunished but also attempting to cure, not human experiments as is suggested with inhumane intentions for a better more efficient human being available through manipulation of the mind by a science far less respected than its worldly expierience backing it up, basically the sycs department.

wow the best yet of the modern bond era, well since Roger Moore anywayz lol makes me seem old/am old iknow but they have gone up and down in quality these days.

Taking no attention away from this picture particularly being fantastic and although a bit rougher (excessive hand 2hand combat) displays the true darker side to a hired killer. great intro to his unpersonal employment factors (explains mmMoneyPenny inuendos) effortlessly glamorous but as unrealistically sultry as a porn is to romantic realism.

good effectsnot over the top except some stunts and the defiblerator gimmic (everyone knows the dangers involved with a defib. for mainstream use).

The modern twists and tech, to the directors credit are copeable for this classic, making viewing a pleasure with a support cast and female lead to die for maybe another too. Daniel Craig gets the thumbs up even though a bit brawnie for this charater/gernre.

The ending did make for a longer motion picture in total, though is an important factor of any tale that can use such as an epilog to both introduce a series and set the standards if the viewer is a thinker of any caliber, to come away from the screen/ing.

What a good. Simply cool picture.
Using a director friend (John Carney) he used to play music with and a skeleton crew with a megre budget, they make a great musical/doco/feature film that has extravergentile tastes in quality and household entertainment.

Not unlike a mini-bio of a time in a guys life, fellow a muscian busker get right down to it when a chance meeting with a girl he dosnt know, but with the simpelist of everyday things, gets to know and love (intimatly? ?, i`ll let you figure it out).

She is a pianist, he strums his song ballads and they encourage their... inspiration on each other a little enough for you to love/enjoy, as a voyer only coukld.

Glossing through small talk and chit chat the story evolves as quickly as a feature but if you allow insight to a real time sense, this 60page script gives everything and more to entertain you with a budding bands music and the muse of a partnership in life.

review: One of the scary gross films of the ninties, for sure shooting brad pitt to super cool status just as I finished school, a big hit.

re-reviewed:2011 Set apart from others in it`s day, a psychological thriller of gore intentbut really packed it in as the thriller more i thought.

synopsis: a couple of homicide detectives track a serial killer of graphic proportions just as one of them comes up for retiment the killing spree takes hold in one of the largest and culturally diverse cities in America they do battle with time to bring him to JUSTICE as he is not finished yet.

Into the Wild 2007,  R)
Into the Wild
'Snap .. scratch the following reference to a documentory I made, as the doco was about a character named 'timothy treadwell' in 'Grizzly Man'-2003 by 'madman' film. An amazing story and makes my 'into the world (serious now).../Wild' review make a lot more sense, if you happen to see both or are interested in this lifestyle typical. ..modern day.

INTO THE WILD ¶ 2003
Too any one that can see 'out of this world' would be better suited title this character goes too farr out man, getting some of lifes experiences that many just take for granted. Sure from a well off financially, a comfort zone and hudgly departmentle background (parents,family,social place) with all of its domestic faults or impurities. This.., he went just to far, with too many things ...'alone'. He seems likeable enough to have not been portrayed as such a loner, but written so exceptionally soas we can all feel we are so alone or 'Doing It-independant' lots of the time.

I just can't get over how different it is from the version I saw, the full documentory with heaps an heaps of live footage from 'The Great Alaska Trip' (probably more of a 'tourism treat' playing on peoples masculene tendancies and explore +...the unknown) sickening me with his stupidity with the bears, as if he's a scientist studying them, when he's a socialist having excelled in human culture not botany or zoology. In 'their element', they feed and he's food its that simple.

Very Sad tale and the doco brought me closer to a physical emotional state than any err visual feast for some time.

I believe he was too close to the high end of what is 'a good upbringing' to have NOT been the victim and actually murdered by 'direction' in life brought forth by one person too reserved, knowing the wealth of accomplishment individually.. is strong.

I fit this guys profile alot and with so many aquaintences and knowone real close on the same level, though moved back 'in and out' of home in my late twenties aswell and have lived well with my parents most of the time in comparisen, I can perhaps, relate to more than others.

that his simpleton personality trait was ment to be more, be like the use of smoke and natural high rather than the complete imbocile, runnaway lout he turned out to be percieved as, in a real life scope to me. Makes for a better story this way:) and for lots more countries making lots more money in support of these freedom ways Hehe. You gotta see the funny side but have to come away from it so much, as it is such a truly sad story.

Australia 2008,  PG-13)
Australia
oooh yeah
From a poetic, musical in that almost broadway, though fasionable way, for the period as well.

This time using soft tones of the earthiest of colours, painting scenes with style accompnying narration through the not too distracting tragedies from taking you away from the bussiness at hand ...the pre-planned profit scheems, derived from a mother country and of the regal House of Lady Ahley (Kidman).

It gave us a sense of time passing of its very own as it slurred though in a dreamtime kinda way, supporting a mystery of a boring predictable romance all the while an introduction also of characters from the 'villians' to the 'mystical natives' wich sets the mood for the basic action of the Cattle Drive of Australian Beef led by "The Drover" (Jackman). An iconic position in Australian outback history. So then the drive, schrouded in evil doings that were caused by compitition and just pressing on through hardships.But for some ruthless people the line becomes unclear.

An interesting friendship almost kinship evolves with Lady Ashley and a native boy Nallah on the drive bringing out yet discovered personalities in them both. Of couse adventures ensues and a budding romance sets the pace for the bulk of the feature, i believe one that could be watched in three installments quite easily, and viewed myself in two pieces comfortably until 80 mins (overnight break) then a cafe break lol at about 40 mins B4 finish.

I think because of the sheer vast area alone it took, this movie can be called an epic, for not only the style and sensationalism. A Classic though, will defineatly be a classic. It did not have the biblical proportions of cast quantity that an epic as i new it would need to carry it off in the film industry. haha It used how Many friends, now how many you can turn down.

The guts of the story i thought was ...The euphoric narration of a little boy together with his grandfather in acknowledgement of an appologetic form of tale, more grand than only words can bestow, of trials and torments in the settlement of a country in modern society, brought about more like a song would deliver and better (the epic) than any Doco could tell.

Great Cinima-scapes, i would have gold classed it had it not been a more suitable duration.

The Men Who Stare At Goats
Directed by: Grant Heslov
Release Date: November 6 2009

This is good if you like a narrative and Ewan McGregor is exccelent voice over right through telling his life exploits with a very experienced soldier of a different baclground than most would find as a reporter vying for a contract/mission in war torn iraq. There are aquite a few flash backs to introduce/make aware the background of his new founds contact (George Cloony) and association with a quirky interview he gave not long befor his life changes um decision lol and go into the face of conflict at this time in his life.

Its rolla-motion-coaster is comedic through to a feeling of very serious realization of ones spiritual side from global proportions to the everyday person/soldier/human with both enlightenment and sycological simplistic common sense, an back to just plain funny

Paranormal possibilities and shock tactics (slapstick) have an erie humour thrust togeather this way and ...we'll I think it worked. A slow "snaap"-all grown up.

The production problem was it did go on, dragging a little long to make it a full feature when the whole thing is so mainstream alternative, start to finish and really friggin funny if you can keep a flippant mentality long enough with out a serious dose of wacky weed lol.

"'used up' a rench ?, how do you 'use up' a rench??"

WOw as awesome as is decorated. Its really only a simple action with some suspense, but falls into its own place so well ...just that great modern cinema photography with all the bumps and jitters but such excellent direction and flow.

With a medeocre array of relitively unknowners for his kind of recognition, (seeing more and more of from the academy peeps) this well directed action picture won academy awarda and delivers a stellar flick for all the family ect.

Special field ops infantry team (with hot shot on point) duing the Irackkie war is called into use skills to assist in bomb threats and booby traps, as events on thier stationed ROTATION during the occupation umungst civilians whom to trust or not, as the arms race has its expected subsiduary fallout when things are as war is.

I really enjoyed it as lighter gesture on dangers of a more first hand immenent assult on peacekeepers. Not too sombre and epic for us or not documented history if you get my drift on that level, but still that pang for fallen comrades to give enough serious emotional viewpoint.

A realist film with anti-war intentions, all out action for your own pants, in human durability confronting war without adding 'too much glory'.

The Pursuit of Happyness 2006,  PG-13)
The Pursuit of Happyness
In the Persuit of Happyness

Will Smith

I expected a 'Brewsters Millions' type of film or the story of Bill Gates or something finding out it was a biography.

When I heard, on Oprah I think, that Will Smith was playing alongside his Biological son in a duet performance I just had to view ? at home.

It was really about just a few weeks/months in reflection of really hard times for this bloke (every day a bad day and seeming to get worse) for a loving father with at least half a brain and well controlled 'honest' display of attitude and the nowse to not let a separation from a partner get between him and his goals as a loving father, to provide and succeed .


He was finding answers to both puzzels and riddles discovering a minute of 'time' that isn`t work, when all was just that, the driving force that helped him survive by imagining a place for both to crawl up in when in a pit of dispaire, subsequently bringing out the best from him to push on.

Throughout a sense of unknowing and weather they make it through it all, together.

Good points:

#the noun ? Happiness, and what is the term for the change from a verb to a noun using a suffix ?.

#The quote ...in the persuit of.. 'happiness'. Is 'it' ...found 'it' or always chasing/looking for it?.

4.0
Dir -Spike Jones

A magical dramatic tale of, a yet so real in a sense, an issue of life. Knowing the inner most of people, even stranger. Many a city person could relate to this quite a New Yorker facet of life by 'being John Malkovich'.

An excellent description of this ordinary-lifes puzzle using an actor-a theater actor, a puppet master and the sort of necessary innersense of his wife, played by Cammeron Diaz. A house wife to John ak playing the eccentrical clerk forced into the workforce position after having a hardship term of his carrer and possible reproduction in the stepping stones of marriage discovers the strange land of ?the voyer?along with a hard ass city lady ? Maxine, who taking it all in her stride opens the pandora`s dark little corner of being enjoyed as someone else. It does have slight referrence to this age old diety like ways fropm other possible cultural beliefs in a subtle way but never condoned by Christianity(possesion of a human being by a wraith or poltigiest) hence the puppeteers need for release by expressing this puzzle thts really abt the throws of living in a populous/community of people

Last Chance Harvey (2008)

Directed by: Joel Hopkins
PG-13, 1 hr. 32 min.
Release Date: January 16, 2009

This considering the coincedence of this guys bad way he`s having and me having lost drivers licience, job and place to live all in the same week, i could largely commiserate. Recommending to a neighbour and to my flixtarian friends easily.

Still an ever so cool swarve Dustin Hoffman playing Harvey Shine, thishis character/predicament relates mainly to amore "later in life circumstance`s" finding romance out of a pickle. So this new found sexual attraction in actress Emma Thomas (a fine enough stunner for the occasion) was both rejouvinating for romatic comedies for me and a go, getting on with it for anyone`s; anytime is a good time, if you can make it so..

Inglourious Basterds
synopsis:
Some time earlier tha the rest of the film, An uscrupulous detective of the affairs of jewish erradication from french mount country has a confrontation with a frenchie farming family.

A Beastly group of vigilanty warrior soldiers track down squds obliterating at will goons, henchmen and ss like rambo assasins behinde enemy lines in occupied France. They.... are known as "the bastards"

At the same time... a little later a cinima owner is persisted by a swooning german soldier of renownd noteriety ultimatly organizing a german horrah night at the cinima, of the movie dedicated to the strikeforce effort that was made into a movie by the great propoganda bestowing big time director whom Hitler himself heralds acclaim.

Also at this same time " still a little later, get the flow" a group are set to Liase with undercover opperatives, set a plan in motion, and with the bastards execute a strike that could change the couse of the Geran war effort in WWII.

Could become a classic tale in time to come for the really obscenely adventurous compelation of chapters only Q.T. (and perhaps guy richie because in crono-logicle order for a change) could provide as the answer to full feature action that can in some referrence need a interval at least.


The subtitles were copable (if your not used to,or not like) because there are a lot. More than his usual dose when required in his movies, though the english is so raw especially by brad pitt that its almost bad pr not fitting where a s the euro trollop was elequaint even to the point of delacasy.

The convergence of characters in his best cesendo yet didn't exactly crash and burn but shone in a more common (real possible) ruthless way albeit not the way history depicted it and certainly not the way 'hiltler' would have allowed with his paranoyer of security of his pressence.

bah soo disappointing on the whole but the sequences of combat were good enough even for minors thoufgh the gore no really at a young age back then when i though freddy kruger was great. It was really a horror but this . . . mainstreem arghh, too much for the tale and not really necessary, thats just mine though hey the was the batcycle and some cool cops shows neuances too boot but not for my exceptance of this age group


The Dark Knight

I guess I was caught up in the 'who is Harvey Dent' concept to not get distracted by the time the last scenes came around in this one, and so I lost it all after the duration of nearly 3 hrs at the cinima and amoungst the explanatory dialog in one hand for the benefit of the kids and another to hide 'The Batman' from being a hero but rather as the darkest of the Justice League team.

Directed by: Gore Verbinski
PG, 1 hr. 47 min.
Release Date: March 4, 2011

review: Rango is the finest one off`s for animation i`ve seen if the the best. It has a great and comedically ..strange story to go along with the utter and mean testing the capabilities of your mind CGI

The quirky take on a wild west with you guessed it - talking animalism all very undomesticated types shedding a light on remote diversity, meets up with this dim witted lizard. A central or focal point character in the union of making friends and adventure companions, characterising good and suspiciously delving into the darker nature of survival in the desert when resources are limited. He really is a likeable character with plenty of emotion displayed to gaggle you into fits of laughter. Amazing

synopsis: This lizard gets the direction and know how of a follower when in transit to greatness in a trans-national career move as an aspiring actor. With all/most things going ary a number of events lead on and into expience as a sherrif and the toughest hombre in the know reaches of the region to the small desert town right out of any spaggetti western. The problem is there this real danger bestowed upon the town with even the steady flow of water to the town edging in foul play as it goes more and more amiss. Time to call the sherrif and rustle a posse to stave the danger once and for all.

Ratatouille
A strong three part story line and funny only in moments, though if your familiar with these kind of hospitality workplaces especially in the kitchen then you`ll laugh true in these moments.

A little bit of love to share for the cartoon expressions on both the humans and (no more fucking animals) the rats that make up the clan, from which an exiting rat that has an educated spot for the culinary arts decides to make do with flair. The comraderie of a kitchen hand doing some of the hands on dabbling as well success ensues, but not for all.

Lacking sinister element where needed though the good is there for all aplenty. Enjoyable to the last.

Would still wear the spiderman undies if they fit lol.

Dunst is stunning as M.J. and haven't caught maguire in many things but this shines his brightest light.

The snap to, american humour in the paper editor, JK Simmons cracks the mood and your face if your not in histerics from the over dub audio from spidermans groans and yelps in effort.

Dir:Peter Jackson

Just now bought a copy of L.O.R. I watched this again for about the third or fourth veiwing, and would have to say this is the greatest fantasy film ever made, if not best full feature ever. A wonderfull, imaganitive, limitless thought provoking commencement to the trilogy.

The scenes are epic from the films start to finish, it did not lack or slow in performances at all. It flowed well for a 'large novel to film' as you could tell there was so much content trying to fit in but what a cinimatic widescreen experience. The characters, places, spiecies and pivotal occurances in 'middle earth time' history are just as easy to stay abreast of as your level of interest permits or very difficult so as to not over burden our qorum of followers expecting a major blockbuster release with its droves of voyers (aliken Orcs really lol).

I think this Installment has three parts or a questionable half time place for viddles breaks or a resitting. Please enjoy again and again.

I greedily await production release of 'The Hobbit'

3rd whole viewing May 2012 review: Through the compression of the other two attempts to see this enjoyably i have succeeded in a double feature this week in leqd up to 'The Avenges" caught a partial viewing of 'The Incredible Hulk' and a re`watch of 'Thor' a couple weeks ago still on the new release shelf. Only saved the best for last. I think 'IronMan' offered the most for the dual characters flair, gadgets, friends and affairs. He`s non stop entertainment as a character rather than the story, witch fell shot in the finale, i thought, but made up for in setting the scene which is Tony Stark. A slow lead off to the picture but took you home and got going on a better front, albeit in home town Malibu or impossible whatever y`know the dream home attitude`s friends and welcome mind if not presence in elite cycles of power and prominence to set up a real super powers/super hero out of like the tom cruise of arms dealers. it`s just great. extra 1 1/2 stars from previous reviews.

2nd attemtp reviewt: Ahh finally got to see the ending - realizin i had missed almost half and the glossed over storyline because so fast 'paced' made a lot better picture this time around. The plot is basic though, any layman could get it and any kid could enjoy it. Its just a modern superman. Action hero`s arn`t dead there just alternative too these days lol. The old saying if everything becomes alternative . then from what is it alternative to. . . ? that probably turned Kirt Cobain to drink lol.

1st attempt: OVER MARKETED !!!!Dam this was so slow getting going with load intriguing continueounces right up until he gets this thing flying an ableit probably to his demise, synced to his mainframe but with a voice now. . . hahaha then the DvDcopy i had cut out grrr (ropeable me) will finish off one day.

nothing extreemly radical but man o man just so basically well made all round. best example of crime, action, thriller, drama this side of ...Boston. Did not disappoint.

cont'.....an excellent police/mafia crime, action, drama. Real time direction and lead role acting by Ben Afleck arise in more world wide acclaim, doing it a not unknown home town kinda place for anybody. Describing organized crime's use of class and 'the' excrutiating (ugh-hm) intellegence near-by, by an unscruplious lower class faction.

The peer pressure is on high volage as the split second reactions of the best drivers from the first film of the franchaise pump pure addrenalin through there bodies just doing what is so strangly a human trait (manual piloting a person transportational device)

Its muscle cars along side fast four imports going bumper to bumper on a shipment heist of narcotics in centra west u.s.a. as vin desil and paul walker get their neck deep best in it with a grin from ear to ear

Sizing up the drama aspect, it's loaded and so the girls get a fare go if they like this sort of following.

Its got me playstation GT4ing again, f#$& I'm good at this game. Anyone want cheats n tips ?? I don't think its a close as close to NFS in streets and chase'n but just better race'n.

Awsome. 'point break' for the rev heads only instead of bank robbery gangs these guys heist truCks en route.

The best thing about this is the mainstream aspect, with great cars and better stunts with accurate cinimatography for the style.

Boring and ordinary acting, but the fast pace and quality production carries it through.

Great flick and better as a series, seeing their not repetitive, much.

PG-13, 2 hr. 20 min. Directed by: Michael Bay Release Date: July 3, 2007 viewed again today must over ten close to twenty and it`s so above the two successors really a notch or two above in film making not segregated components of a ever growing complexity. The final battle , a minor one but i have not seena better array of goings on in fight than this, ever. I only wish Megatron did a swifty into a giant hand gun for starsceem to weild like a hand cannon, so too much like the cartoon would have taken away too much originality that has delivered with this, for mine from start to finish. i must have been moody at this previous reviewing to follow .. Dissapointing. The Cast of Machines were limited to much, would have really brought this movie up to parr If both thier speaking parts and general respect of intelligence level was raised a notch or two.

this was a totally awsome film and i love will smith, fially a more serious role for him other than a loving husband a farther. The character he portraied is a one that you would have to know from either a military background or other films like this that could refer to an armagedon or dooms day on a more at home and did deal with it type of senierio re: ground zero jus rolling off the toung.His cherished pal and memory trigger for the passed family with good adaptation for dialog with would have left it along the long trek of Day After Tomorrow. The good thing with this type of simplistic plot (apart from the viris details ect. . .and medical research systematics/routines that doo really give him his chance to suvive,insert brute strength) is the diverse world concpts that are covered and enable you to get a good
POV for the performance and effort of, lets face it . . . the earth`s LEGEND for humanities survival.

Release Date: June 10, 2011

Acclaim: i can't imagine what it would be like for people of that age depicted group that could benifit from this the most. It`s exquisit to think of the little effort for this kind of magic for 'the boy' big or small but to include a girl too, magnificent. Anymore than just consultation with Spielberg and would be an immediate Oscar, sure hope it`s even nominated.
Marvolous.
What motion pictures are made for.

Review: All the nostalga from faces so familiar it`s meaninglessness is not overlooked by many. Joel Courtney as Joe Lamb giving me goosies reminding me of house familiarity s like 'the wonder years'-'karate kid'-'goonies' and 'flight of the navigator' and 'stand by me' even the bikes they ride are rock childhood memories.

Thrilling enough for a action adventure of small town scale, and the 'it' is actually a scary monster :0, not some bank robbers or rival gang peers, bringing it home and stepping it up as very ordinary people in a very basic but spectacular fim

Synopsis: A group of kids whom decide to include a midnight cargo train in there super 8 film project get more than they bargin for when finding out the cargo is a top secret operation by the U.S. airforces in the middle of an elaborate citizen intervention. A bit of experimentle romance includes a girl peer (a pleasent Elle Fanning, yes-though the younger of the two siblings) into the bratt pack and a half of the new mellenium, and with a deputy sherif as the dad of one of the kids, getting to the bottom of whats going on is`nt as hard as rolling up a fat one with out him knowing lol i cant pick the period exactly but i`m too old for even trying lol. A fun pleasurable experience to watch.

Directed by: George Lucas
PG, 2 hr. 11 min.
Release Date: February 10, 2012

review: 19-02-20 This re-release with added 3D is not one for the 3D only category and is a marvellous chance for a cinematic experience of a beloved tale`s pre-conceived prologue trilogy.

The 3D is only enhancement and all the CGI is already in place in deep complex layers so don`t be too disappointed this wasn`t shot for 3D like many great scenes these days for picture such as this make believe intergalactic realm.

They say if you have a shit thats to big you get a head ache or cry or if you watch a toaster waiting to pop up it wont, wel it`s much like that. You can do your head in thinking your not paying attention to 3D and spoil it from trying. Thats so blunt, so i guess all is left to do is sharpen up your attentiveness to the enjoyment not visual dexterity or lethargy. 3D is great and in a big way coming into our homes altering the perceptions of THE family unit from alot of different circles.

synopsis: To begin the series Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn, assisted by Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi are sent by the jedi council to appease a resolution to a trade dispute between merchants and routes a blockade is set at an outer planet needing intervention to politically alleviate tension. This dosn`t go at all to the council plan and with the queen and place seized the two jedi have to escape the planets defences and scrambled communications to report of the pending robot armies potential intentions. This is also to difficult for the two jedi and small party without making friends with an extraordinary individual named Anakin Skywalker (Jake Lloyd) succeeding a forced landing for repairs on a remote planet Tatoine by a wager in a Pod Racer Event piloted by none other than Anakin. This all the main body of the flick and excluding the politically esuing plot a battle is imminent to re-establish order to the befallen planet led by Natalie Portman as Queen Amidala / Padmà (C) Naberrie played by a young Natalie Portman.
There are villains aplenty and a mysterious manipulative super boss/Dark emperor to stave thier quest for justice within the confederation

review: i was not as disappointed as some with the sacrilege that
these childish follow-ups bestowed on the greatest action adventure sci-fi trilogy of all time.

The 3D should enhance even more heaps of work went into the audio on these (they CGI upDated episode 4 5 6 way back in 90`s adding small cut scenes and techni-colour revamping classics is/was common practice), why not a $20 spend viewing a cinimatic 3D not so old re-run or three.

#N.B Being a cartoon appreciator i would recommend 'the clone wars saga' as a start to finish a timeless series to anyone, as if you don`t already know ..they are better than you initially think.

Really good and only just slightly disappointing considering it's age and my anticipation for one of the most advanced thriller's of it's time. An all-road great movie. So ..it was an un-elaborate type of film, very easy to grasp plot, maybe not some technical detail but overall story for a young age. The fantastically shot, every scene a keeper was a lot (too much to keep up with days films) an actor shoot-out, by meaning ..prolonged portrait shots of just ..people (and cast the was not extensive ) ...a superbly elegant Laura Dern in hiking attire (hot) ..our aussie Sam Neil looked a classic dinosaur face portrait (authentic) in every grinning close ue ..ever so suave Jeff Goldblum sounded half educated as usual as an intellectual adviser (was a super under the radar cool guy of the time) ..Bob Peck didn't have a large part though was a lot better than i remembered epitomized the dude that looks like he knows what he's doing, to perfection ..Samuel L Jackson was just the tough guy of the ..next decade to come but set a style in this way for many pictures of the time. For say 90% of the thrills it was like this, then wam-a killer dino shoot. Though this added to the classic genre of motion pictures and the tense actor driven thrillers ever since film creaton. that said the rest is spectacular graphic (animatronic) imaging even to today's standards and all models very palatable and lifelike. Timeless family brilliance. seen it. one of the most monument-us film industry films of my viewer life if sure.

Can't wait to see this new 3D version opening this week in Oz

Captain America(Steve Rogers), Thor(Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man(robert downy jnr) , Hawkeye(Jeremy Renner), Halk(banner), Nick Fury-Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.(Samuel L. Jackson)

Good film if not for the anticipation alone, it is up there on best of 2011 list for me.

An excellent carry over storyline that encompases enough changes but not too much so to distract away from a simple super hero adventure film.

good action and even better screen play sequences deliver and a villan in true definition of the word true to eye and err ..smell, (played brilliantly by Hugo Weeaving-the matrix) this arch villian of yesteryear is reminisant of an x-men nemisis and others but broughtto us in a unique 'left to the imagination' way only marvel can apply.

A stella cast makes up for the lead performance that really was exquisirt but in a highly competitive field only gets a mention

synopsis: the begining is ordinary -cpl of guys in the enlisting potetial only one accepts after multiple try`s the other, a lesser man, gets a chance in a select trial squad to find an elite soldier. This comencing while a syco SS faction nastzi is sdomination in extreen extents to lead his own gains during the war.

A link is made scientifically and mystically between the two sub plots when all hell breaks loose as the on e the only Captain America don the title and goes after a strict regime to combat the villans factories and henchmen to stop further domination finds his own strengths catapulting an action to the adventure and some momentum in motion to enchant your masculinity and bravado in time to stop the distruction of homeland security.

I suggest again awaing the credits out to see a sneek of the ensuing amalgamation of heros for next years installment of 'The Avengers'

Inception 2010,  PG-13)
Inception
well just got home from the viewing and have to say I didn't get it then and don't get it now *sarcasim* but the full picture was great. You can't stammer on minor detail and it dos'nt wash when you don't, but questionable logic does prevail. This amung other notable repeat concepts were sub plots for the the elaborate sublime in explaining this ...dream working ...elaborately.

Being close to someone you love, loved or connected to through similar days events and sharing dreams is not hard to grasp, and this 'going below' ( ha and in layers if not complex enough ) or dream sharing as one could call it, to get 'jobs done' for each heist, but (I still say I didn't get it lol-how basic) Its is how far Nolan went with it in a very imaginative, action adventure, in a fantasy relm close if not the closest one can get to the real world/present day earth.

The difficulty in viewing I found was all the pressing dialog distracting from the basics, though explaining as I stated above where, what, who and how at times, for the subliminal aswell ...if your following the underlying concepts.

So it is really a personal affection one can only get first hand on this. .. well, "great film" really.

I don't often enough get to the big screen leaving it up to the eyecandy cartoons or 3D films these days but this did have the stanger than the norm scenes and a thunderous surround that yerns your attention for the more complexities. This was'nt one but I think would be much better at the cinima, not DISAPPOINTED.

review: seen in 3D (only mediocre in quality for it`s calibre, there was a lot to see any way in every frame)

OK so you think the scene is set right, seen all the related features and some (plus a re-run or two of the probably more relevant, Ironman as i did going through an all out action phase at moment) prior to viewing this long awaited epic of super hero proportions, but ...from the intro it all scatters, all notions minimal as to what then befalls your senses.

Whedon had created a weave, woven a better lace than a lattice of bacon for breakfast the size of a large plate, of the characters introduced in their own right and developing as the avenger initiative takes shape or at least seemed to as you would hope. From the moment the first punch in the film is thrown, a testosterone explosion in characters beginnings to present knowledge of seem to not have comparison at all or erases that of and a harder edge to the characters and the story, an edge only disipline as great would be required if children are as entertained (old enough to view) as us adults.

It really is non-stop in only a Marvel`s way but i can remember thinking which possible way next, then, as the prances and powersare diverse or seemingly useless more surprises keep punching, firing, hammering or smashing away in yet another unexpected way, impossible to imagine in time (real quick) even if you`ve seen all the trailers and shorts, nothing is let loose in a way you think all their is too it. It just flows on and into the next impossible to imagine marvolousness scene after the next. Far more continuous action than i expected above adventure of characterising the just get into it from start to finish, the funny bones surely curl and quiver under 'passion, goodness and very save`s the day'. Little though in comparison to the punch force of action, mayhem and destruction of lol sequences flowing on and into one another.

Great top film of 2012 above all else for action and within a tight few for the recent released adventure epics. For mine best in any genre to date, for the year so far.

Really just ok and as expected a depiction of motion picturesodes yet again.
Didnt like (in comparissen to the early instalments of the existing ten i`m watching following the most recent feature) the photography in the styling of a tripod with jackhammer feet and of the lights flashing like a strobe a while trying to enjoy the great but meager CG. Acting was good for a bunch of unknowns plus all hail our home grown Eric Banner and Leonard Nimoy.couple of things didnt add up or were not thouroughly explained, perhaps i missed the first TiMe but hey theres always again and again heh

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Less disappointing than my first viewing at the cinima (being my first gold class experience, recliners with side tables and tray service, compted up as the normal cinima tickets ran out on the person right in front of me in the cue lol) ...and a bit more intensive than I could recall, for this genre at least. A little mysterious with a conclusive twist leading into a follow-through finale. Huh, kids get older who'd of guessed.

I am finding it interesting watching these part by part given that each chapter in the Harry Potter series is different from each other plot wise directionally, with the very distictive similarities such as the cast, lead in's at his muggle home and of course the wand waving 'Hogwarts School of Wizardry', castle grounds & sceenery.

Moon 2009,  R)

Thought provoking and enlightening. An interesting future world is created on our moon for industrial scientist Sam Bell (sam rockwell) getting on in isolation. An astronought confronting emotioal and mental conditions cullmenating a "3 year contract with a radical fusion energy mega company" that's enflickted by an arrival/accident incedent and a coensiding mid-term accident plus the trend towards the downfall being hierachies lax take on an ongoing problem in comms with earth. There he has a loving family at home whom he obviously deeply cares for and has constant feelings for empathized with his onboard A.I. that has a sophisticated human-caring protocol forefront if not the focal point for the entire picture.

The comming of age/awakening factors are there, for ussall, along with routine sycological delemmas in everyday existance excentuating 'self reliance' and a sense of what if there is no 'big machine' doing these thing for us a large % of our time aware of things all around.

The action steps up, only a notch, so does the technological aspect making an intelectual syce drama film all the more worth the watch.

review: Basically looks like a bag of lolies on the cover and hits your senses much the same, you may need to turn the colour on you screen down a notch but it`s Oh so magnificent again from these creators. An installment not to be missed, and plse tell me theres going to be a 4th with Andy coming back as a dux of the school and everyones having crazy over his return when Woody gets to pixar his nose lol it come to gether like balls.

These pieces of imaginative childrens adventure brought to us over the last decade in 2D, now 3D (for the third, i didn`t bother to get in to the cinima for the full 3D version this time) myself opting instead to follow suit comparativly with the others on dvd But in as many years to come ..what next? for the creators of the first full feature pixar animation film.

synopsis: Andy is off to colledge and Ma`s getting him to thro stuff out he dosn`t want and to keep in the atic all his toys and things he wants to keep, thigs do go ary at this stage and not only is Woody totally misunderstood but Andy`s intention as well. This leads to a possible new home for the guy`s who are lead astray and a escap mission for all those willing to stay loyal. a couple of quirky complications give the story a much need buzz and laugh out loud humour give you stitches as usual. Not as good as the original (i know cliche) or the second which cannot be topped but very good. highly recommendable.

It was sure to disappoint as sucessors do though covered mostly everthing as if it was your first viewing of the pair but did leave out alot of the action and focus too much on the heist, err with the obligitory almost sarcastic trademark city street vehicle chase. performances were fair though lacked support character effort to not draw away attention to much from the sequences at hand in follow suit to the projected age targets, aswell alittle disappointing though unlike battlestar galactica-one of my "favorites" (a profoile question i had trouble dealing with) I viewed this movie entirly enthrawled with as an big kid unlike the above mentioned ( B.G. the movie) not having even watched it so as to not dissappoint my expectations like the new series did, Come on Indianna Jones the series , Come on National Tresure the series . . .

Salt (2010)


Directed by: Phillip Noyce
PG-13, 1 hr. 31 min.

Excellent. best action spy flick i`ve seen in as long as i can remember. (probably 'night and day'), but this was on another level. in likeness to Pierce Brosnan as Bond-007'Die another Day', this agent went through some stringent anti terrorist interrogation and without screwtinizing her profile too much (leaving room for many a follow up features) it is hard though decisively easy to carry on with who`s on whom side. epitome of defection defined and embellished in a cripping fasion very much to my liking.

She was so well cast on this character, non stop men bashing (pitty poor Brad- need another adoption darling err ok sweetness) with fists and no-how of both militia and civilian combat/protection the sequences are second to non, except a little vehicular roof jumping could`ve looked better.
But where it lack it makes up for in plot because for an action light on in intelegence it does pick up in formalities, and could really be the case, senerios.

synopsis: Evelyn Salt is an agent with many secrets, when confronting an ordinary interview for intel the characterizing get a serious evasive acceleration filling you in but leaving you guessing. The chase is underway and nothing can stop Evelyn producing the truth for us to see as her ability or disability as an over seas intel agent now working in an elite U.S. department.

National Treasure
Good, Best adventure for years. Perhaps as a thing for the original (and best )American 'Disney' of the entire ?World? when opening up in other places around the planet, in other societies. A smash hit was needed after the death of Walt (R.I.P) for the American way and this made fun for kids/adults alike, for anyone anywhere that is interested.

Also at the turn of the mellenium, a striong referrence to the 'Tempelar Treasures of Conflict'. Amidst the releases of mega blockbusters like 'Kingdom of Heaven ? and 'The Davinci Code' at around the same time, global interest was preyed upon.

I viewed it on DvD, and it had some cool little sublime description of your rank as a viewer: a child, an average normal person (adult) and in faulse sense of confidence 'YOU'- the legendary brainiac treasure hunter, whom can succed I n remote DvD Menue puzzel to achieve and gain accessto futher EXTRAS available on offer with the product.

It did have a sequal equally entertaining, if not as good as this, just as imaginitive bringing national history interplay educationally using an adventure movie, brilliant only the Americans could think of this... Lol

Once again so simple a movie it didnt have to go for so long but Ron Howard did put it all together magically.

It is my belief that if you can understand that is how it is as a parallell (like all things created by the divine god) then let it rest. If you cannot then you are among one of the richest group of followers known to religion.

The Notebook
i like a little action and or adventure to tostesterone up a romance but with the notebook it was all raw romance from start to finish, everything a girl (and some blokes too) could dream of and more.

The reviews bestoke a highly acclaimeed piece and it did all that...

McAdams : a fulfilling work, with script leaving little to be anything but her fantastic effort apart.
Gosling : Believe I have not had the pleasure before this film though he was a grand (dumb-struck) average guy to say the least adoring every part of her surrounds too.

It is really playing on your essence of all these things right in this way (romantically) for the plot (laying it on a little thick, to hide the drama i`d say keeping it raw romance) and did have that throw-up material pun from ally mid-way, (i did laugh out load at this) all the while enjoying my greedy little indulgence to succumb myself to it`s captivation in particular the sets detail and of the very rich and everyday poor folk`s contrasting ways of the time.

Today i gave it 4.5 stars with the extra half going to the performances of the older James Garner and the younger Rachel McAdams thinking it a little too strong to recommend to anyone. Life is beautiful, look out !

Cars 2006,  G)
Cars
Really good, though not for everyone, to agree with this i`m sure they can find the kids value in it as a cartoon as is lacking in any interlectual acts/scenes or conotations at all, but has a lived in, heartfelt, moral of 'progress as a culture' having gone and left it`s 'press' component behind, as it sometimes does.

A talking race car gets led astray enrout to another 'big race meet'. One that would 'make' or 'brake' a big sponer deal. While lost or missing has to make it up to a little community after a quick judicial hearing though a serice to give back for damages.

He meets and greets fellow talking 'cars and trucks that hold the little town together' making true friends along the way. He learns of some local history and compoetitive edges for his futture from wisdom if not experience alone.

Excellent A1 class aneme with bright vibrant colours and landscape sketches, some really cool concepts of down to earth America and or their small town motoring communities I have yet seen better descibed on a big screen feature that can achieve the colour and wonder of their west.

so good, So good. The colour and wonder in chracterzed features and movement wow factr. imporessive progressive storyline tht has all its moral content but also has its movement of a modern picture thats not just for the kids. Funny but not in a ocmedy fashion, as is surly an action adventure for all the family instead carries on the cool dry wit thats quite common in films that Jay Baruchel (playing Hiccup) is in, usually with oreof a crew.

I found the fiction elements a much more enjoyable feature factor of this kind crammed in a fantasy story in an even more non ficto relm than pessed.

All round -could not fault. One solid ..Yes! Highy recommendable.

I think this lacked a lot of the lustre compared to the first one (typical squeal Failing) though had little merit outright. Don`t get me wrong panda was funny as ever and Dustan Hoffman as Master Shifu followed suit with dry hilarity accordingly but as an adult able to pick up on the bigger picture do not want to experience again thus instilling an immediate evac. if was to put on repeat ect. for children

I`m pretty sure it`s the same director but failing to give/share around the script with more dialogue for the famous five and innuendo`s for romance hint on tension again only useful to children event then of particular age. Again not to say there wasn`t enough dialogue as the villainous Gary Oldman as Lord Shen James Hong as Mr. Ping Po`s farther had some great line and more of a part an action adventure would take rather a drama adventure. Soo 'again' not boasting the gold of like, say, 'King Solomon mines' for example, fell short for me in many places

..but a top notch fun film for all a family none the less with laughs all round and magnificent CGI mannerisms and expressions any talking animals flick would envy.

PG-13, 2 hr. 13 min.
Release Date: December 21, 2011

action packed. simple fast paced, you know the premise by now. Successive mission from the dramatic conclusion of M.I. IV slightly un-carried on and seems private.

May-haps just me, but i think Tom Cruise is looking a lot more distinguished/older in this than ever befor, like a dark haired Robert Redford, but boy is he getting more and more knocked around. To view the series ultimately to this point prior to this was ...just out of my reach, this time around.

It seems their dabbling in a more comical environment (technically a bit bodgie from er Q) though all the usual distractions continually present in the form of a gadget guessing game femme fatales , stunts and an ever evolving leadership strategy while throwing around ol Tommy boy.

It`s a good film from star to finish, great in fact with a lot of laughs and really super super photography for the utterly ridiculous required shots and 'right now-right here' decision making processes on a non-stop, no sleep thrill ride among the knew 'stella cast' team. Some theories for a successive story carry over possibilities but most part an unconnected, individual story.

Plus its like ..PG-13=5 stars for me. As i was writing this a t.v. commercial comes on for 'the goonies' and for these adventure types.. well, life dosn`t get any better, just more complicated
