A genuine blast of non-stop fun from start to finish. An exciting, energetic, stylish and wickedly funny entertainment. A spectacular joy-ride you cannot get enough of. An instant classic. It's loaded with action, comedy, special effects and a very big heart. A heartfelt, moving, thrilling and utterly exhilarating action-adventure that is a visual feast for the eyes and ears that just blows you away. Marvel has stepped their game with another new and brilliant addition to their series of adventures. It's filled with gorgeous special effects that just capture your eyes and a story and characters that just grab your heart. The cast is just wonderful to watch. Chris Pratt is sensational. Zoe Saldana is terrific. David Bautista is actually really great and totally embraces the madness and heart of his character. Bradley Cooper steals the show as Rocket with his over the top humor and great charm. Vin Diesel is wonderful as Groot, even that he just has three lines you can feel the embrace of his motion captured performance. These five are totally the dream team to route for. Isn't anything else but a great time.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (PG-13, 2014)

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles manages to be a really ugly piece of entertainment in every possible. D... read morereary events are connected by loud lumbering disorganized scenes punctuated by lots of noise, all strung together. The action set-pieces are so stridently generic that I couldn't even describe them immediately after this headache was over. The dimly lit "excitement" is so cluttered, your eyes will glaze over from the miasma of the chaos. A large part of the story has nothing to do with ninja turtles, but rather a bunch of human beings that wouldn't have enough presence to activate an automatic door, let alone occupy the focus of a movie. And the turtles themselves look disgusting, like gooey roided-up hulks impregnated with reptilian features. We never get to know the characters. The four of them were completely interchangeable as far as I was concerned. I couldn't differentiate their violent militarized personalities apart. They do wear different colored masks at least. I think one wore glasses. Perhaps even more grotesque is Splinter, their rescued lab rat mentor who leaned Ninjutsu from a book he found. He sports rat facial hair and the Asian garb out of an old martial arts flick. He's voiced by Tony Shalhoub (!). The atmosphere is extremely depressing. The only time some 90s magic is shown is when the turtles start beatboxing in an elevator. It's at that moment the production starts to feel a little fun, but the second that's over, the feature reverts back to being a dour desecration of the lighthearted source material. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had me shell-shocked.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (PG-13, 2014)

    When I was a kid, I was a Ninja Turtles freak; I mean I was obsessed with it. I completely forgot ab... read moreout what most of a back-story is, as I feel that some childhood memories should not to be played with and that's where the classic 80's cartoon comes into play. This interpretations is mediocre at best with some good effects, and a common complaint here is that Michael Bay again messed with our "beloved childhoods" for those who are actually old enough to remember the cartoons, comics, toys and whatever awesome merchandise came with it, I believe they should just not take it too much to heart. Now, on to this film, first, the film is a mediocre affair and it doesn't do anything to really make it standout. First the great, the effects, the way the turtles look are wonderful. Some scenes are very good, the action is kind of cool, but in grand scheme of things, the film feels tiresome, empty as if they're trying to recapture the magic that cartoon and old films had. Unfortunately, it never becomes anything memorable, because the story I felt was too thin, and though it had an interesting twist on the Turtles, it never becomes anything really entertaining due to a lack of wonderful storytelling due to a lacking script. However director Jonathan Liebesman, who has a so-so career, and though I feel his best works are Battle: Los Angeles (I know, but the sheer idea of marines fighting a war with aliens, is really cool, for me anyways) and Wrath of the Titans. He's proven hew's able to craft effective action, yet I will admit, his lack wondrous storytelling, and rely on popcorn action to really grab your attention. With that being said, the action here is good, but with every other film in Liebesman's filmography, he crafted a popcorn film that can make a huge impact in the genre. Sure, the films I enjoyed that I mentioned earlier here were fun, but they won't be classics anytime. I would say that TMNT is Liebesman's most disappointing feature, and this one could have been something unique and really great if more attention to developing a great screenplay and picking a few different actors for various parts would have been undertaken. The most diehard fans will be disappointed, and I wanted like it, but I felt it lacked something to make it really fun, memorable and ultimately wonderful action filmmaking. Oh well, Liebesman has at least fun little films underneath his belt, and that's something.

  • 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.
  • If I Stay (PG-13, 2014)

    Chloe Grace Moretz is one of the best reasons to check out this film. She shines here. Every film, I... read more see her in, she keeps getting better and better. I wasn't expecting much from the trailer. I was pleasantly surprised after watching the film. It reminded me of movies like The Invisible, Save the Last Dance, and The Lovely Bones. I did like this film more than The Vow, The Fault in Our Stars, and A Walk To Remember.

    The film is a bit predictable, however, I didn't mind that here. I did like a lot of the music references throughout the film. One thing I wasn't crazy about was the _b_style and structure of the film. It keeps going back and fourth from the present in the hospital and the flashbacks.

    Chloe has a good on screen chemistry with both Jamie Blackley and Mireille Enos, and Joshua Leonard. Leonard and Enos are great as Chloe's folks in the film. Stacy Keach does a good job as Chloe's grandfather.

    I definitely recommend this film, especially cause of Chloe's performance. I hope she will play Hit Girl, one more time for Kick-Ass 3.

Sure, Tom Hardy is the lead in this film and we are basically following his mysterious character, who seems like a simple enough guy that could blow at any minute; but the film, while fairly straightforward, puts a number of things in front of its characters in a way that makes it hard to describe simply. As it stands, The Drop is a well-acted feature about criminals, gangsters, abuse, sorted pasts, moving on in one's life, just trying to get by, and a cute little dog.

    From the trailer, I thought I wasn't gonna like this film. Boy, was I wrong. This film is hilarious.... read more The key to the film is not to take it too seriously. It kind of reminded me of movies like Blue Streak, 30 Minutes or Less, Three Amigos, and 21 Jump Street. The film kind of spoofs action films, especially buddy cop films.

    What makes this work, is the teaming of Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. They are hilarious together on screen. They have a great on screen chemistry. We are rooting for these screw up underdogs. Rob Riggle is also good in his supporting role.

    I definitely recommend this film and hope Wayans Jr. and Johnson do more films togethers.
