I really want to see Blue is the Warmest Color and Fruitvale Station. Saw Frozen at the weekend - review coming soon! I still can't view your profile even though we're friends, I don't understand why?

No worries, it would be boring if we all loved the same films. I saw Prisoners the other day. It was a special screening and Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal made a surprise visit to see what we thought of it at the end of the movie. It was pretty cool to meet Donnie Darko and The Wolverine! Review coming soon (it's a good movie).

Jersey Boys

(2014)

As a movie, it shows you how these 4 men formed a group and sing on stage with some one-hit wonders. As a fan of the Four Seasons or a music lover in general, you might consider yourself singing along with the songs sang here. That leaves us to a poorly directed musical biopic that as well is unconvincing and uninspiring movie. Clint Eastwood had made some great movies and some bad movies in his 50+ years in Hollywood, I think his latest is a bit mess at times, not a great movie but somehow the music numbers make it a rise. Eastwood instead cast unfamiliar actors to play here probably are famous somewhere other than the Jersey Boys stage musical. I wished I would have go deeper and learned more about some of the subplots here such as the Christopher Walken character as a gangster, Frankie Valli's inspiration in singing and his voice, a little bit about the other 3 guys on this group, Frankie's daughter dealing with a lot of problems so devastating and yet it doesn't get emotional or painful it just felt nothing, and of course, does everybody in this world knew them or loved them I wished I get to see their legacy.
So, that leaves us to me saying that this is a very decent movie from the great Eastwood. He should have made some other story not like this one, a musical, not because he has a little taste to it, but he has to feel more of the music. Now I'm gonna check out the Broadway musical now in Youtube if there is!

If somebody would ask me what movie should some smart people watch with also enough brainless entertainment on it, then this would be the one. I don't know whether it deserves a spot for the best film of 2014 or best action sci-fi of 2014 or either way both, so you decide, and for me, it's definitely both. Before I give you a little no-spolier warning to the ending that probably most people would interpret and discuss after, here's why the movie is a must-see.
Tom Cruise is as usual the kind of actor working today that knows his movies and how it will go to the box office and to the home video as well. I don't think ever in my life that I have a least favorite Cruise movie. Other supporting actors follow from Bill Paxton and Emily Blunt with roles who most of the time make the movie worth seeing how truly these people will fight for the country and as well for themselves too. It happens that I've seen too many films with reset time concept especially Groundhog Day but with violence, I don't think so. And as you have not think of it, the action scenes and special FX are first rate and mind-blowing. When Cruise's character already saw the same day probably two or more times, that's where the show starts. You're also not expecting to cheer up for this guy to win at this battle as we know that he's not a soldier not unlike Blunt's character who's... Just watch the film I don't want to spoil everything!!!

And lastly here's what I think the ending, Yes, they win the war, and yet in that case, something is still not completed or in other words, need to be done. Other than that, LIVE, DIE, REPEAT!
