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!
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!!!!
Before this, movies based on toys sucked, especially from Hasbro! So, I didn't expect much from THE LEGO MOVIE, but it actually exceeded my expectations. The story and the morals are pretty clever, the animation is something we haven't seen before, the voice cast was impressive, the great directing duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller worked really hard, and the humor is crazy. Of course, there were LEGO-version appearances of stuff I don't care about like DC superheroes, Michelangelo from TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, and Gandalf from THE LORD OF THE RINGS and THE HOBBIT trilogies. But, aside from the obvious LEGO-version appearances of Abraham Lincoln, William Shakespeare, The Statue of Liberty, and Shaquille O'Neal and the 2002 NBA All-Stars....the LEGO-version appearances that really had me and the audience surprised and laughing like crazy were Dumbledore (who sounded like a weird pussy) from HARRY POTTER and Milhouse (who didn't say anything) from THE SIMPSONS. And there was a pretty funny STAR WARS moment! However, if all those characters from different franchises can appear in the movie, why couldn't we get a LEGO SpongeBob or a LEGO Jack Sparrow or etc.? Plus, if LEGO Dumbledore is there, why not a LEGO Harry Potter? Anyway, at least there were cute supporting characters like Benny a.k.a. the 1980-something space guy and Uni-Kitty, but the character who really stole the show was Morgan Freeman's character Vitruvius. He was so funny that he even tossed the villainous characters voiced by the funny Will Ferrell and the action-packed Liam Neeson to the curb. Well, not literally! But, what makes this movie even better is the unexpected twists. Well, there are three of them! I won't give them away, but they are crazy and beyond what we all saw in the trailers and commercials. When you get closer to the end of the movie, it kinda feels like the TOY STORY trilogy, but you'll understand what I'm talking about when you see this. Overall, this movie is insane and fun! When you go see this, you are in for a surprise of your life. It is "the first great movie of 2014"! "Everything isn't awesome", but this movie literally is "awesome"!!!!
