I was born on August 3, 1994. I am an Ontario native from the Niagara Region in Canada. I lived in Welland for most of my life, but then I moved to Wainfleet in December 2010. I loved movies my whole life, but when I was little, the only movies I loved were Disney movies. Ask me when what movie came out or coming out in the future and I'll give you the date. I am currently enrolling in Niagara College on the Welland Campus for Broadcasting (Radio, Television, and Film). I am hoping to become a successful screenwriter and hang out with my heroes, favorite actors and actresses, and my celebrity crushes. My heroes are Johnny Depp, Jerry Bruckheimer, Steven Spielberg, and Tim Burton. That's my life, so far!
Centered on a beautiful animated jungle with funnier humour, new characters, more action, some songs that are better than the first movie's songs, and a better story that can be related to the second installments of DreamWorks Animation franchises SHREK and MADAGASCAR....this movie also follows the same animated route as CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 whereas the sequel improves on the original regardless of what the critics say!!!!
I have gotten more excited for this movie after every newer trailer and featurette came out, though what was anticipation turned into disappointment. What I mean is that the movie was good, but not what I hoped! The Watchers were awesome, though it is very hard to believe that they are angels considering they looked like six-armed stone golems, but eventually you watch their origin story and understand why. They really kicked-ass in the flood scene, but I will always criticize of the fact that Nick Nolte signed on as their leader two months before the film's release, even if it was voice-acting. The acting is also really good and the flood scene kept me at the edge of my seat. However, there were a lot of flaws! The disturbing scenes were actually a little more disturbing than I imagined because they were so realistic like that one moment where humans were cannibalizing on young women and God's innocent creatures. That scene was brutal! The one thing that left me embarrassed was that Noah's youngest child named Japheth....is actually a boy! That left me confused and embarrassed because when you watch the trailers and commercials, he looks and sounds like he is a girl, but no offense to newcomer actor Leo McHugh Carroll! To all the other young men who had a crush on Emma Watson like me, this story gets worse: during the New Year of 2014, she gets a new boyfriend and now in this movie, her character Ila is married to her stepbrother Shem. Holy incest! Plus, during their time on the ark, she becomes pregnant with twin daughters. No guy like me who wants no kids in the future wants to see a pregnant Emma Watson! Of course, abortions weren't around back then, but she and the family were excited and that announcement made Noah mentally-unstable. He almost killed them! Another major flaw that had me shocked was Adam and Eve looking like nothing but gold-colored people. The last big flaw is the one I save for last: the movie ends way after the flood! I expected the movie to end with the flood happening for a while, reaching land, and then living peacefully. I never imagined that Noah and his family would be floating in the ark for over like nine months....followed by a really slow ending on land! I will give credit to Paramount for not showing The Watchers in the film's marketing so that me and other audience members would be in for an interesting treat, but they must've forgot to put their disclaimer from the recent marketing at the beginning of the movie like what DreamWorks Animation did for THE PRINCE OF EGYPT. Though, I give my praise to Logan Lerman's character Ham who eventually left the family after Noah left Ham's love interest to die. I would obviously do the same thing! But, where does his story end? I would've really loved to see Ham enjoy his new life without his family and with a beautiful woman! Would the studio, cast, and crew make that story as a sequel to this movie? If so, it would be very interesting! If you are Catholic-Christian and are really excited for this movie, you'll probably leave the theater a little confused and disappointed like me and maybe think that all those flaws make earlier 2014's religious flops WINTER'S TALE (also starring Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly) and SON OF GOD look like hits. So, despite all those epic flaws and some moments that made me yawn, the flood scene rocked and some of the fast-paced sequences fried my eyeballs! NOAH may not be for everybody, but it's definitely worth the watch!!!!
Even though I haven't watched the original cartoon segment on THE ROCKY & BULLWINKLE SHOW, this DWA adaptation is a lot better than said cartoon! Not only is it a little more mature, but it is also heartfelt and a pretty good history lesson for kids. The movie is a little funnier than I expected because even adults like me enjoyed the historic pooping jokes and who wouldn't laugh at these legendary people playing DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION, wearing #1 foam fingers, eating pizza, etc.? Aside from Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, messed-up president Bill Clinton is also made fun of briefly. Eventually, I asked myself: "Why didn't George Bush and Rob Ford get made fun of?" It would've been a lot funnier if they were! Thankfully, the planned ROCKY & BULLWINKLE short film that was supposed to be shown before this movie didn't appear and instead....we got an interesting "short film-style" sneak peek at HOME, which comes out eight months later. Also, the voice acting is very good, but it's no surprise that the one who made me laugh the most was Patrick Warburton. His character literally stole every scene he was in! Overall, this isn't one of the studio's greatest films, but it is better than their last movie TURBO and it's a better time-travel animated flick than Disney's MEET THE ROBINSONS. So, with all that mentioned and decent 3-D, MR. PEABODY & SHERMAN is a worth-seeing time-travel trip for all ages!
When it comes to movies about Jesus, this film is really better than THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST! I know, it is selections from the final five episodes of The History Channel's popular miniseries THE BIBLE with deleted scenes, but it really is a "real movie" if you are either unfamiliar with or haven't even watched the miniseries. It was just a decade ago that legendary scumbag Mel Gibson unleashed THE PASSION onto our world filled with brutal violence, gory scenes, a shit-load of controversy, and SOUTH PARK parodies. It was good....but it was made by awful studios, it wasn't in English, it was too gory, and it only showed the final 12 hours of Jesus and ended with a brief look at his resurrection. Though, the earthquake scene near the end is not as epic as said movie and Satan has been removed due to the Obama comparison that occurred in the miniseries. That's just some of the flaws there and the visual effects were not as awesome, but that's because....again....this is from the miniseries. However, at least we have a Jesus movie that covers more than just the crucifixion! What is also unique about this movie is that it has one of the shortest end credit scenes in the history of movies. Like almost as short as a typical IMAX documentary! Anyway, I recommend SON OF GOD to anyone else who is Catholic-Christian and/or believes in God, Satan, Heaven, and Hell. When you combine the greatest story ever told with incredible acting and an epic score from Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer, this movie really is "the son of God"!
A lot of people won't agree with me on this, especially these so-called "professional" movie critics, but this is actually one of the best romance movies I have seen in a long time! Though, this isn't just a romance movie that came out in time for Valentine's Day, it's a movie even guys can enjoy. I mean, Neil Gaiman loved it! If you love fantasy, religion, good vs. evil, angels and demons....and if you are a hopeless romantic like me who believes in stuff like miracles, faith, and hope....then you should see this movie. Since this is also Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman's directing debut and his passion project, this emotional story winks at those who has lost someone they loved and cared about, especially since his wife died of a heart attack in July 2010. Another important thing to mention is that the acting is incredibly superb. Three of my many favorite actors are in this: Colin Farrell as the protagonist, Russell Crowe as the villain, and a surprise supporting role nobody will believe....Will Smith as Lucifer a.k.a. The Judge. That's right, Will Smith is the devil! He only appeared in two scenes, but boy, he stole the show and proved that even awesome actors like Russell and Will have dark sides. Okay, I know the special effects on the horse's wings are poor, but at least they make the much-ignored TITANS franchise a hit with Pegasus' wings. And yeah, this movie does make you question about the afterlife a lot! Also, I have read the novel before seeing the movie and I can already tell that most of the book's fans are pissed at this movie. But, in this case, I actually prefer the film adaptation. Seriously, the book's ending was awful and thankfully Akiva managed to give the movie version a happier ending. This film may be a critical and commercial flop, but I guess Warner Bros. Pictures isn't too upset about that since it came out a week after THE LEGO MOVIE surprised us all and it was "awesome"! Overall, it's no EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, but WINTER'S TALE is a romantic fantasy must-see!!!!
