I saw this movie for free at home and it was basically what I imagined; piddly, boring and un-interesting. I didn't even have the pleasure of jumping once from a cheap scare and there was nothing remotely scary about this movie at all, what I find scary is that 74% of critics liked it on Flixter and it made 40 million at the box office.......i don't get it. At least i didn't pay money to see it, although i did waste an hour and 45 minutes of my life
Lucy was a mindf*ck. It was entertaining, interesting and fun to watch and had a lot of neat effects. Scarlett Johansson was great in the movie. It reminded me a bit of "Limitless" with Bradley Cooper. The movie focus's around "Lucy" who gets mixed up with a crime boss, things take a turn for the worst; taking shape for the rest of what the movie will be. You begin to see the different stages of her brain capacity starting at 5% and gets higher and higher. The film says that we've only advanced to the point of utilizing 10% of our brains' capabilities and Dolphins 20%. I would of liked it to be a bit longer and had Scarlett kicking more ass, although it has it's moments.
This movie was disappointing, the first trailer made it look really funny with little of the movie actually shown in the trailer, kinda deceiving. I love Melissa McCarthy; but this was by far her weakest movie. The laughs were short lived; few and far in-between. It was kind of a weird roadtrip movie gone bad, but still didn't seem to really go anywhere?! If that makes sense. overall it had a great cast, good intentions but it still wasn't enough to win me over, it was a weird mix of corny comedy that didn't work most of the time and this random drama thrown in that seemed un-needed and forced. Even with a good cast, if the movie stinks it's not going to work. Disappointing overall. 2/5
Transformers Age of Extinction was awful!!! I actually HATED this movie...Big budget effects don't make a good movie. I didn't mind the first 2 for what they were, didn't care for the third one, this one is the worst! Where did Shia's character go anyways? I'm done with the franchise. This movie was Pretentious, cheesy, unrealistic, just preposterous. Stupid character development, They all should have died 10 times over; and people say Horror is unrealistic? LOL At least we know Freddy or Jason are dead and the premise is run, stab, kill. Getting through this movie without laughing is a miracle! LOL Mark Wahlberg fighting Decepticons with a gun, kicking ass, seemingly invisible, must be his muscular arms? cars exploding, cities collapsing, still doesn't die. these people are being thrown through buildings, falling out of the sky, you know whatever happens they wont die, it's predictable. Some stupid boyfriend is thrown into the mix.....No one cares about this idiot, He can't act, the 1 liners are ridiculous. Ugh....Just punch me in the face.....Long movie too I feel I wasted 2 and a half hours of my life.
If you liked the first one, you'll love the second one. I enjoyed this one more than the first, although similar only this time they go to college instead of high school, it was full of laughs, full of vulgar humour, I loved the weird roommate girl "Mercedes" she was funny. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hull have great onscreen chemistry, it shows. I loved the "tripping out" scenes in the movie LOL! Friggin' Channing dancing around rainbows.....
