Jon's Recent Reviews
I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I thought it would be a decent, cute, family film but it was one that actually had a decent plot and a spine. Thinking it would be quite predictable, there were levels to the story that kept me wanting to know the story of the main characters and was really rooting for their success. Reminiscent of a modern take on "Rocky", this one was a lot better than I had predicted.
I'm sure the story of this film is pretty good, but I could not get through the first quarter because of the copious amount of swearing. I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to stuff like that and I don't recall ever not finishing a film, but this was so over the top it was distracting to the point of annoyance.
Jon's Favorite Movies
This film is one of my favorite movies, if not THE most favorite movie of mine. It seems to get better with each viewing and has absolutely everything I like in a film. Action, comedy, sci-fi, among many other story elements. This was extremely well done all the way from smart writing through brilliant production and is complimented nicely with the other 2 sequels. I think everyone should see this film franchise. Although the music is great throughout the movie from 80s hits to 50s classics, it also has one of the best film scores of all time.
This was one of my all time favorite movies growing up. Christopher Reeve was the template for Superman ever since this movie came out. The soundtrack is especially well done!
