Transcendence

(2014)

The film feels like a rip off of the movie "The Lawnmower Man." Even though I had problems with that film, it was much better than this one. This one needed a major re-write. The story is about uploading a man's mind into a computer and he turns against everyone. I felt like I have seen that story before. The film was too predictable and not suspenseful. A lot of the characters lacked depth.

The computer reminded me a little bit of the computer in Eagle Eye or HAL in 2001. The relationship between Depp in the computer and Hall reminded me of the Joaquin Phoenix/Scarlett Johanson relationship in the movie Her. It also seemed like the director was trying to copy the style of Chris Nolan and it doesn't work here. Of all the actors in the film, only Paul Bettany does a good job here.

I would say, skip this film and check out Lawnmower Man instead.

Taylor Lautner needs a better starring vehicle than this. This film needed a major re-write. They had a good idea for a film but didn't execute it correctly. They tried to make Taylor like Matt Damon's Jason Bourne and it doesn't work here. It reminded me of the film Cold Light of Day with Henry Cavill and Bruce Willis. I thought that film was a little bit better than this one. One major problem is that character's aren't well developed.

Another problem was the casting. I thought Taylor was better in the Twilight films or even Valentine's Day than this film. In my opinion he had no on screen chemistry with Lilly Collins. Lilly was better in Mirror Mirror than this film. Michael Nyqvist was better in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol than here. A lot of the supporting actors, I am betting did this film for the paycheck.

I hope Taylor's next film will be better than this one.

Kevin Costner makes this film a home run. When it comes to sports films, he is definitely the right actor for any sports film, besides baseball (example: Tin Cup). He really makes the film work. Ivan Reitman did a great job casting an ensemble of actors for Kevin to play off of.

The film reminded me of movies like Moneyball, The Replacements, and Jerry Maguire. I actually liked this better than Moneyball. You don't have to be a football fan to understand the film. Ivan Reitman did a great directing job here. This isn't the type of film, I would expect Ivan to do. I could see his son directing a film like this.

I definitely recommend this film. It will have you cheering at the end.

Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wanted

This film could have been so much better than what it is. It needed a major rewrite. The last Muppets film, was an homage to the Muppets legacy. This one felt like they tried to copy 2 previous Muppet Movies, "The Great Muppet Caper" and "Muppets Take Manhattan." Doing a caper film is in tradition of Great Muppet Caper. Having Kermit and Piggy headed to the alter to get married is like Muppets Take Manhattan. They should have tried to do something new, rather than recycle existing material. They needed a better story.

The songs aren't really good here. The film opens really good and after that it goes downhill. The opening number "We're Doing A Sequel" was the best song in the film. I did like that it ended on "Together Again" which goes back to Muppets Take Manhattan. I did like that they did something creative at the end credits of the film.

The focus of the film should have been on Sam the Eagle and Ty Burrell's character. They had a great on screen chemistry but given very little screen time. Burrell reminded me of Inspector Cleuseu. I could see him playing the role in the next Pink Panther film. Ricky Gervais surprisingly disappointed here. Tina Fey was ok, but felt like her character needed more. There is a lot of celeb cameos in the film. I felt the majority of cameo were not necessary. Only a few worked well. Less is more.

I also wish Jason Seagall would have returned. The last film had heart. So did a majority of the Muppet films. This one lacked heart and was just one comedy bit after another and one song after another. Also I felt that Walter was out of place here with the Muppets. He worked well in the last Muppet film cause he worked off of Seagall.

Despite some flaws, the film is entertaining. The last movie was my favorite in the franchise. I hope for the next Muppet film, they do something new, rather than copying what they have already done.

Alex Cross

Miscasting is one of the major problems with this film. Tyler Perry was the wrong choice to play Alex Cross. He is no Morgan Freeman. They should have casted someone like Terrence Howard or Jeffrey Wright. They would have been awesome in the role. Perry seems out of place in this action film.

The film also needed a rewrite. A lot of the dialog seemed sloppy. Also the film was predictable. I wasn't surprised by some of the things that happened in the film. I knew right away who hired Matthew Fox's character.

Matthew Fox is the best reason to watch the film. He is really good as the killer Picasso. He was also good when he played the villain in Vantage Point. I would love to see him do more villain roles. The problem here is that he doesn't have a good foil in Perry. Perry also doesn't have a good on screen chemistry with Ed Burns. Ed seems like he is trying to make it work as best as he can.

Of the 3 Alex Cross films that were made, Along Came a Spider, would be my favorite. As for this film, check it out for Matthew Fox's performance. If you want to see a good Alex Cross film, then check out, Along Came A Spider.
