Armed with electronic paraphernalia, the team is spectacularly successful, ridding The Big Apple of dozens of ghoulies, ghosties and long-legged beasties. Tight-lipped bureaucrat William Atherton regards the Ghostbusters as a bunch of charlatans, but is forced to eat his words when New York is besieged by an army of unfriendly spirits, conjured up by a long-dead Babylonian demon and "channelled" through beautiful cellist Sigourney Weaver and nerdish Rick Moranis. The climax is a glorious sendup of every Godzilla movie ever made-and we daresay it cost more than a year's worth of Japanese monster flicks combined. Who'd ever dream that the chubby, cheery Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man would turn out to be the most malevolent threat ever faced by New York City? When the script for Ghostbusters was forged by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, John Belushi was slated to play the Bill Murray role; Belushi's death in 1982 not only necessitated the hiring of Murray, but also an extensive rewrite. The most expensive comedy made up to 1984, Ghostbusters made money hand over fist, spawning not only a 1989 sequel but also two animated TV series (one of them partially based on an earlier live-action TV weekly, titled The Ghost Busters. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

  • Guardians of the Galaxy (PG-13, 2014)

    Phenomenal action science fiction picture, I think it's safe to say that Guardians of the Galaxy is ... read morea highly engaging film, one that far exceeded expectations. I was skeptical about this one, granted, but after the film credits rolled, I felt that this was one of the most exhilarating films of the year. Brilliantly acted and bursting with awesome effects, this has got to one of entertaining films I've seen since The Avengers. I think that the main reason that the film w2orks so well is that the characters are wonderful, and each actor that portray them are well chosen for the parts they play, and each actor really brings something quite entertaining to their respective characters. I really enjoyed the character of Rocket, he was my favorite of the film, and Bradley Cooper really stood out with the dialogue that made the character so good. Add to that some well executed and engaging action scenes, and it's why this film stands out as one of the best, if not the coolest movie of the year. The mix of humor as well adds so much to the tone of the picture, and director James Gunn has successfully blended both elements into one picture that demands repeated viewings. With 2014 being an incredible year for movies, I think it's getting very hard to pick a favorite, however, Guardians of the Galaxy is up there as one of favorites of the year so far. This is the way an action film should be made, great cast, effective story, good humor and enthralling visuals. This is a well made film that is well worth your time, and if you haven't seen it, by all means go see it, as you'll surely have a blast. The film succeeds on many levels to entertain you, and it's a perfect film, one that is well worth your time, and doesn't have a single boring moment. Guardians of the Galaxy is a prime example of a movie that can exceed expectations, and it's a film that riveting, thrilling and memorable from the first frame onwards.

  • The Giver (PG-13, 2014)

    It was a pretty decent movie. Do I think it could have been better? Yes.

    Let's start out... read more with the problems. Jeff Bridges. He was doing something weird with his lip. It was like he was pushing it out to make himself sound older if that makes sense. It was distracting and weird. I didn't feel like Brenton, Cameron or Odeya were particularly strong actors. They weren't bad, but a little flat. I'm sure with time they will grow. And although I didn't totally mind them aging up the characters, I really did not feel like the romance subplot was necessary. Also, I'm not sure I buy Katie Holmes or Alexander Skarsgard as parents of an 18 year old boy. Another thing I felt that did not make sense was the whole sled thing. I mean, its the first memory that Jonas recieves, but at the end (when he's in Elsewhere) he finds the same sled and the same house with carolers. Was that merely a coincidence or The Giver know about the place? Like, I don't think he has abilities to show him the present or future, so it just seemed weird and too contrived that he just so happens to arrive at the same place.

    But I really felt like it got the beautiful and emotional side of what life is right.

    As for book to movie changes, the only really glaring were ages and romance subplot. All other changes were really minor and not bothersome.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy (PG-13, 2014)

    One of the great things about the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that it allows lesser known character... read mores to get their own movies and hopefully become popular with the general moviegoing audience. Before they got their own movies, characters such as Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America were popular within the comic book community. Now that they have their own movies and have crossed over thanks to The Avengers, these characters rake in huge box office numbers and have impacted pop culture. Now it's time for Marvel to bring one of their more obscure teams to the big screen, the Guardians of the Galaxy. When the film was officially announced two years ago, I scratched my head wondering who they were and why they were getting their own film. The goal of the film is to open up the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe after it had been teased in previous films. Guardians of the Galaxy successfully did this in a smart and entertaining fashion.

    The film tells the story of Peter Quill, a man from Earth who was abducted by space bandits when he was young. Twenty-six years later, Peter is now a space outlaw known as Star Lord. After Star Lord steals a coveted artifact, he is arrested along with other criminals who are after it. These include Gamora, a feisty assassin, Groot, a tree-like creature, Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, and Drax the Destroyer, a hard as nails warrior. The five get to know each other through a prison break and form a team with a goal to keep the artifact away from Ronan the Accuser, who plans to spread terror through the galaxy with its power.

    I figured I was going to like this movie from the trailers. The movie was marketed as an action comedy, a tone different from past Marvel films. And the film is exactly just that, a sci-fi action comedy. This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a while. What makes this film work is how it does not take itself seriously. A movie with a talking raccoon and tree cannot be taken seriously! The film's marketing does a good job of not giving away a lot of the funny parts. This film has a great sense of humor. It's irreverent, sarcastic, and the way it uses pop culture references is clever instead of annoying. Seriously, every two minutes or so, I was laughing! The banter between the characters is entertaining to watch and I smiled just watching them interact. This movie has a script that is really funny but it manages to throw a bit of emotion into there. There were a few parts that gave me feels. Screenwriters, James Gunn and Nicole Perlman, created a great script. From what I've heard, the movie nailed the tone of the comic. If the comics are like this movie, then I'm definitely going to start reading them!

    The film has a great cast. Star Lord is played by Chris Pratt, a talented and funny actor who I really enjoy. He does a fantastic job in this film. He's like a mix between Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Tony Stark, and Flynn Rider. He's sarcastic and does not like to be messed with. He also is very funny. He has an admiration for 70s and 80s culture and that was a nice touch. He makes a few 80s references that were pretty funny. Pratt is able to pull off both funny and heroic seamlessly. In my opinion, Pratt could be the new face of Marvel Studios once Robert Downey Jr.'s contract is up. With this and next year's Jurassic World, Chris Pratt is sure to become a movie star. Next up is Zoe Saldana. This is her third sci-fi franchise after Star Trek and Avatar. She's a talented actress who knows how to bring strong female characters to life. She plays Gamora and she is such a cool character. She has good character development and she can sure kick butt. She's like the Black Widow of the team. Drax the Destroyer is played by wrestler, Dave Bautista. Other than The Rock, I'm not a fan of wrestler turned actors. Bautista is awesome as Drax. He's a great fighter with a good backstory. He was also really funny.

    In my opinion, Rocket stole the show thanks to Bradley Cooper's voice work. Cooper's adds a bit of a Brooklyn accent to the character and it works. It made Rocket sound a little more aggressive. Rocket is downright hilarious. He's sarcastic and irreverent and I loved every minute he was on screen. Vin Diesel played Groot through performance capture. Although Groot hardly speaks, I still enjoyed his presence. There were two scenes with him that had me laughing hard. Michael Rooker was enjoyable as Yondu, Star Lord's boss. It was pretty much Merle from The Walking Dead as a blue alien. His weapon of choice is a sweet and I would love to get me one of those. I thought Rooker was pretty funny. I liked his character. Karen Gilliam was awesome as the cyborg, Nebula. She managed to be beautiful and intimidating at the same time. Lee Pace portrays the villain, Ronan. Pace's acting was alright but he came off as just another villain bent on domination. He was a little better than Malekith in Thor: The Dark World but he could have been written better. Apart from Loki and The Winter Soldier, this franchise has had pretty weak villains in my opinion. I really hope they starting writing better villains. Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, and Benicio del Toro had small roles but they did pretty good with the little they had. The film rounded up a talented cast and there was not one bad performance.

    The film's talented cast was able to integrate very well with the film's impressive special effects. The film introduces to a galaxy with cool looking creatures and locations. The production design in this looks great. The sets are large and detailed and look like something from another world. Just by looking at it, it's obvious that the set designers turned to Star Wars for inspiration. The special effects on Rocket and Groot also impressed me. The actors did a good job communicating with a talking raccoon that wasn't there. Vin Diesel's motion capture work on Groot was also pretty good. The special effects artists made Groot look a lot like Diesel. Another great aspect about the film was the soundtrack. Since Peter Quill is a child of the 80s, his playlist consists of 60s, 70s, and 80s tracks. The film features tracks from Blue Swede, The Jackson 5, and The Runaways to name a few. When these songs come on, they are accompanied by some pretty entertaining scenes. It makes the scene a lot more entertaining to watch. Whoever selected the soundtrack deserves unlimited high-fives!

    Guardians of the Galaxy is currently the best entry in Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yup, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been surpassed in my opinion. The film is hilarious, heartfelt, has a great cast, and has one of the best soundtracks in any recent film. These characters will instantly skyrocket to the Marvel A-List along with The Avengers. It's some of the most fun you'll have at the theater this year. Also don't forget to stay after the credits. I can't wait to see the team in their next outing. The best kinds of blockbusters are the ones that are both fun and well-crafted and Guardians of the Galaxy did just that.

The laughs are too few and it really relys on awkward sexual humor that gets tiresome at a certain point. It becomes a very serious film that, instead of just giving us a goofy buddy (not so) cop film, tries way too hard to get us to become engaged in a boring crime story. Damon Wayans and Jake Johnson has some fun chemistry, but even they can't save this film from not living up to its potential. I laughed a few times and its two lead stars are enjoyable, but in the end Let's Be Cops became too serious in a dull script. Here is solid proof that sometimes a comedy would've been better without a real story.
  • The Hundred-Foot Journey (PG, 2014)

    Time for a a little bit of an embarrassing admission: I've never seen Chocolat. I haven't seen The C... read moreider House Rules either, well at least not all of it though I can recall starting it about a half dozen times. What I can say is I distinctly remember being in the eighth grade and my art teacher trying to convince me that it would be a more rewarding experience to go see Chocolat than Vertical Limit, which I was clearly anxious to see and would choose over an artsy film any day of the week (it had Robin in it!). Needless to say, all this time later I still haven't made time to visit director Lasse Hallström's well-reviewed romantic drama starring Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp that would seem to make the most pleasant double-feature with his latest film, The Hundred-Foot Journey. If we're being honest though, there wasn't a large amount of interest in this film for me, a 27 year-old who was more excited to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles than an adult drama about the vast difference in cultures and their respectable inclinations even when a minuscule distance separates them, say a hundred feet? The Hundred-Foot Journey is a film no better described than being purely pleasant. It is a movie that could easily pass a weekend afternoon and be completely satisfying in doing so. There is nothing inherently wrong with a movie like The Hundred-Foot Journey, but it is to be understood going in that it is nothing but insubstantial froth. It is the dessert to a lazy, stress-free weekend or even the bubbly anecdotal answer to a demanding or trying couple of days. Either way, most will receive the same feeling from this slightly high brow Hallmark movie in that it paints a world where the outside conflicts of our existence never enter into the picture and the small trials and tribulations of our characters, while certainly major in their lives, leave little worry with the audience because we know exactly where things are heading and how *pleasantly* they will all turn out.

The turtles looked pretty great and they all were voice-casted pretty spot-on except for Leo (Johnny Knoxville's voice just doesn't fit). They also are pretty excellent performances from the actors themselves, and they nailed the turtles personality-wise. From a story perspective, the plot isn't very exciting and is very basic. I hope they take a few more risks with the just-announced sequel...risks named Bebop and Rocksteady. And could someone at Marvel teach these guys how to do a post-credits tease (well, anyone but James Gunn)?
  • The Expendables 3 (PG-13, 2014)

    This is a bland, poorly constructed film considering its star power. The Expendables 3 lacks anythin... read moreg remotely good about it, and relies on the same old formula in order to create its thrills. The film didn't grab my attention like the previous two, and to be honest, I thought it was a waste of time. The film really could have been something great, considering some of the action stars attached to the project, but in the long run, it's just a formulaic and uninteresting action film to watch. I felt this was a waste of time, one that doesn't do anything interesting with its stars, as the script is so poorly put together; it's as if, the filmmakers didn't care this time around. The first two were pleasant popcorn action films, far from being great films, but they were watchable time wasters with lots of well constructed action. The Expendables 3 feels tiresome, and it's just a lack of effort and will surely disappoint fans of the first two films. Don't go into this one expecting a fun popcorn film as it's just a tiresome action film with nothing new to offer its fans. Aside from a few new names attached to its cast, The Expendables 3 just doesn't have anything refreshing or interesting to offer up in the genre. If you're looking for something entertaining, you'll be disappointed. As it is, it's the worst of the three films, and with that being said, let's hope it's also the final entry. Stick with the first two, and skip this one, it's not worth your time.
