Hercules

Hercules

(2014)
3 days ago via Flixster

Now this movie Hercules is a movie I was getting ready to hate on because to be honest it looked really stupid, plus it was directed by Brett Ratner. Surprisingly though, I didn't hate this movie as much as I thought I would, actually to be honest I didn't really hate this movie at all. Now don't get me wrong this movie isn't a great movie, it's actually pretty stupid at times, but the movie knows it's stupid, it's just a fun movie you can sit back and have fun with. Hercules is just a summer pop corn flick that's entertaining for a onetime watch. Brett Ratner is a very sloppy director and it really shows in this movie because this movie had horrible execution and bad camera angles. Now what made up for this movies bad direction were its visuals. The CG in this movie looked really good and the designs of some of the set pieces looked good too. The production design was well laid out and I can tell they actually put some effort into that. The action was another thing that made this movie fun. Were all the action scenes perfectly choreographed? No! Were all the fight scenes epic? No! But the movie was very adventurous and the fight scenes may have not as been as epic as other fight scenes in other action movies, but they still worked for this movie. Dwayne Johnson also looked like he was having fun in this movie, which was entertaining to watch. He wasn't top notch in this movie, but I thought he was fine and it was entertaining to see him play Hercules. The supporting cast was even fine, like Ian McShane, John Hurt and Rufus Sewell were all decent in their roles. I think the best way to go into this movie is to go in it with low expectations because if you think the movie will be shit, the movie might surprise you, but if you think this movie is going to be the next 300, then you might be disappointed. I was pleasantly surprised by this movie because I was expecting to hate it, but I actually ended up having fun with it. Like I said the movie is pretty stupid and it's really badly directed, but it's still a fun pop corn flick. Some people will definitely not get into it, but at least everyone can admit that this movie was way better than The Legend of Hercules because that was absolute shit. So if you like fun pop corn action movies, then check out this movie, but if not you can skip it.

Sex Tape

Sex Tape

(2014)
3 days ago via Flixster

The movie Sex Tape looked like a terrible comedic film and I was expecting a terrible comedic film when I went and saw it, but after I was done watching the movie I realized this movie isn't just a terrible comedy, it's a really stupid and contrived comedy. I thought after the movie Tammy this year was done with its shitty raunchy comedies, but apparently not. Sex Tape, a movie that's about a couple who wants to spice up their marriage and they way they do that is by filming each other while having sex. Now when they make their sex tape they accidently send it to every person they know, so in a panic the couple tries to find out where every copy of their tape went so they can find it and destroy it so nobody can watch it. This movie is basically like Road Trip meets Bad Teacher and since I'm not a fan of either of those films I knew already this movie would suck. All this film had to do is make me laugh, that's it. Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel are the two leading roles and they have both played in funny comedies before, so surely they can make this movie funny right? Wrong! Both Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel were terrible in this film. They had terrible chemistry with each other and neither one of them said anything funny or did anything funny. Sure, Cameron Diaz looks very attractive in this movie, which was great to see, but that's not enough to make up for this terrible movie. Even supporting cast members, like Rob Corddry, Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe couldn't even save this movie. Every single joke in this movie failed; there wasn't a single thing that I found funny in this movie. Jake Kasdan, who directed Bad Teacher, directed this film and he blew it. I think he's capable of directing good movies, but when it comes to comedy, I think he should stop making those. I can tell he's trying to appeal to the teenage demographic and who knows some teenagers might like this movie, I don't know why, but who knows. I didn't like this movie at all and I don't think anyone should blow their money on this shitty comedy.

The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge: Anarchy

(2014)
3 days ago via Flixster

The Purge was a movie that came out last year and it was a horror movie with a unique premise. The premise of the movie was every year they have a thing called the purge, which takes place around the world for one night and for this one night all crimes are legal. Now in the first movie it's about a family, who gets there home invaded during the purge and that's it. Everybody who saw the movie was really disappointed because they thought with an interesting premise like that the movie would explore a lot, but it didn't. So when people saw the previous for this movie, people got excited again because they thought that this movie would be different and was this movie different? Yes, it was! This movie actually shows people surviving the purge, it's not just a lame home invasion movie because it's an actual movie about survival. This movie also puts in some interesting main characters that are actually entertaining to watch. Frank Grillo plays the lead guy in this movie and he was a total badass in this movie, sure his performance was good, but I really liked that this is the character everyone roots for because he's just so determined and he's a lot of fun to watch. The other characters were really interesting too because they weren't your typical dumb horror movie characters, they were actually pretty logical people and they did whatever it takes to survive. I thought all these main characters made a good team and it was fun watching them all kick some ass. Now this movie may seem like a horror movie and it kind of is, but I consider it more of an action movie. It has some scary scenes in the movie, but it's mostly an action movie, which was fine. James DeMonaco did a poor job with the first purge movie, but this one was good. It's not going to be anyone's favorite movie of the year, but it's a fun action/horror movie that has some interesting characters, decent writing and some pretty intense scenes. Not everyone is going to enjoy it, but some people might like it and I'm one of those people. It's nothing amazing or anything, but I enjoyed it and I was glad to see that it was way better than the first movie. So if you want to watch an entertaining movie, then I would recommend this movie.

Planes: Fire And Rescue

Planes: Fire And Rescue

(2014)
3 days ago via Flixster

When I saw the previous for this movie I thought only one thing, "DID THEY REALLY HAVE TO MAKE A SEQUEL TO PLANES". Come on, I think everyone knows when the movie Planes came out, it was just a cash grab film because the movie Cars & Cars 2 were so popular. To be honest I really don't like the Cars movies, I know there are a lot of people who are fans of those movies, which is fine, but I just can't get into those movies. Now when Planes came out last year, I knew the movie would be terrible because the animation looked cheap and the jokes seemed very childish. I did end up watching the movie and it was just as I thought it was; which is a stupid kid's movie that has no original plot or characters. Unfortunately the movie actually made money and since the budget for the film was so cheap it made all of its money back and then some, so I guess that meant for them to make a sequel. Now is Planes: Fire and Rescue a bad movie? Of course it is! Is it worse than the first Planes movie? Well..... Kind of! The first Planes movie was awful and this movie was just as awful, but when I was watching this movie I was so darn bored that I was counting down the minutes until it was over. I didn't do that when I saw the first Planes movie, sure I hated every minute of it, but I was never bored. When I watching this Planes movie I was so bored and I didn't enjoy a single thing about the movie. Maybe in the first Planes movie there was a little bit of entertainment, not a lot, but a little bit. In Planes: Fire and Rescue, there was nothing fun or enjoyable about the movie. The characters were the most clichéd and generic characters you will ever watch. The story is filled with I don't know how many clichés and almost every joke that was used in this film was a stupid car or plane pun that wasn't in the slightest bit funny. The animation still looks really cheap looking and Dane Cook returns as the lead character and once again Dane Cook proves that he can't act, even in an animated movie. I don't know what else to say about this movie other than skip this movie and see something better.

Lucy

Lucy

(2014)
3 days ago via Flixster

The movie Lucy has the same premise as the 2011 film Limitless, which means it's about a person who takes a drug and the drug they take makes them use 100 percent of their brains capacity. In Limitless actor, Bradley Cooper played the lead role as the guy who takes the drug to make him smarter. In this movie Scarlett Johansson plays the leading female that takes a drug to make her smarter, but in this movie she is forced to do it and also in this movie when you use 100 percent of your brain you not only become smarter, but apparently you become indestructible. You see in the movie Limitless, as flawed as that movie was, it still made sense because when he took this drug to make him that smart, he just became really smart nothing else, he didn't become a superhero. In this movie Lucy when she takes this drug she becomes like a god and she can control everything, which was incredibly unrealistic. Most of the science they were talking about in the movie was total bullshit. I can tell they were trying to make it all logical, but it didn't work because anyone who knows anything about science or physics they would know most of the crap they were saying in this movie was bullshit. This movie Lucy is like Transcendence, meaning the movie was trying so hard to be smart, but it ended up being really stupid. I know a lot of people can just ignore all the logic and stupidity in this movie and just have fun with it, but personally I couldn't get into this movie. It was a pseudo-intelligent film, with bad writing, boring action scenes and an uninteresting protagonist. Seriously the main character Lucy was a hard character to cheer for because not only was she just boring to watch, but since she could control everything and not a single person stood a chance against her, I found that to be really boring because the whole movie was just her throwing people around. When you have a main character you have to make them go through difficult challenges and make them rise up because that's what makes the main character all the more interesting and all the more likeable. In the movie Lucy, she doesn't really face any challenges and she never finds anything difficult, which honestly was really boring to watch. Scarlett Johansson is a talented actress and I do like her and I can tell she was trying her hardest, but her character was just so poorly development and so uninteresting, I don't think there could've been a single actress that could've played the part well. This is mostly all because of Luc Besson, who wrote and directed this movie. Sure, Luc Besson has made some good movies before, like Leon: The Professional, Taken and The Fifth Element are good movies, but I have to admit he's been really lacking for a while. In his early career he wrote and directed a lot of fun action movies, but nowadays he makes really goofy action movies that are not only forgettable, but really pointless. This movie Lucy falls under that category of goofy and pointless because this movie didn't really have a point and I bet in a few years from now I don't think anybody is going to remember this movie. Why should they? This entire movie is filled with boring characters and bad writing. Both Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman couldn't save this movie. Lucy is a mess of a movie and as much as I thought the movie Limitless was overrated, I still found that movie more entertaining. So I would not recommend the movie Lucy, even as an action movie it still doesn't hold up.
