It's less as awesome as I had hoped! Why? Because for some reason, Zeus and Hades made no appearance and the film flopped at the box-office. However....the 3-D was good, The Rock literally rocked, John Hurt and Ralph Fiennes' brother Joseph make menacing villains (Joseph must be following in his older brother's footsteps by playing villains), and the movie is an overall fun experience. Plus, I really enjoyed Ingrid Bolso Berdal's performance! Seriously, she went from an evil, scary, grey-skined, blue-haired, poison dart frog-force feeding witch credited as "Horned Witch" in HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS to a sexy, muscular, belly button-showing warrior named Atalanta in this movie. Put all that together with a hilarious Ian McShane, other good performances, great action and visual effects, and Irina Shayk's bare ass....and you got a HERCULES movie that gives earlier 2014's THE LEGEND OF HERCULES the finger and even improving on the classic animated Disney musical version from 1997. In conclusion, if you're a hater of the rebooted TITANS franchise which I'm not and are looking for an awesome take on the son of Zeus, then you're at the right place! This is definitely a great conclusion to my Summer 2014 blockbuster season!!!!
With stunning fantasy animation, amazing 3-D, some really funny humour, emotional scenes, human villains instead of just dragons like in the first movie, and an incredible voice cast upgraded with Kit Harington, Cate Blanchett, and Djimon Hounsou....HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 is one of DreamWorks Animation's best sequels ever! Though, there are questions about the franchise as a whole like are Drago Bludvist and his Bewilderbeast still alive after their defeat? Plus, which of the first 2 movies is better? Hard to answer both questions for now, but overall....this movie will leave people like me anticipated for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 3!
When it comes to the JUMP STREET franchise, 22 is definitely better than 21! However, there were a lot of scenes and dialogue from the marketing that were not shown in the actual film, but hopefully there will be an "Extended Cut" of it showing all of those best parts. Another big flaw is Schmidt losing another girlfriend, who happens to be Captain Dickson's daughter and in return....the Captain tases Schmidt in the testicles. It may seem funny, but it's really an incredibly abusive punishment. If I were Schmidt, I would've just quit! My point is that Sony needs to make at least one more installment where Schmidt finds his true love, not be left out heartbroken, and have a happy ending. When it comes to Jenko, he may have hung out with a lot of girls, but who knows if he'll ever find his own perfect woman. Anyway....with bigger jokes, most of the main and supporting cast returning, spring break bikini ogling, an awesome mid-credit sequence along with a short after-credits scene, loads of uncredited cameos as surprising as Johnny Depp from the original, and the nasty Peter Stormare as the new villain who isn't disrespectful to women like his characters from CHOCOLAT and HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS....this is one of those sequels that improves on the last movie, but I really expected more!
Now, the last couple of days or weeks before this movie came out, I was blown away by how much the critics loved it and seeing it in theatres definitely lived up to all the critical acclaim! I love the animation, the score, the fantasy action, and the emotional friendship between Hiccup and Toothless. The main flaw I like to address is the theme song in the end credits that is just incredibly stupid. However, this movie somewhat felt like KUNG FU PANDA, but in Scotland instead of China. Overall, HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON is one of DreamWorks Animation's greatest movies and franchise starters ever!
I have never seen an episode of the 1987-1991 crime drama television series this movie is based on, even though it made Johnny Depp (one of my biggest heroes) a star! But, 21 JUMP STREET is hilarious, action-packed, and also has a pinch of heart. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller from CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, this action comedy features awesome performances by Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube. Sure, there's Peter DeLuise in an uncredited cameo and Holly Robinson Peete in a credited cameo reprising their roles as their characters from the TV show, but it is JD himself that gave me and the audience a BIG surprise as Tom Hanson (also sadly uncredited) in an undercover disguise as a hippie motorcyclist. He's says some funny shit at first, but tragically dies afterwards with his partner played by DeLuise....which drove me nuts! However, this movie definetly worked as an action comedy, instead of a crime drama, and proves that you don't need to be a fan of the TV series to enjoy this film!!!!
