Rio 2

Rio 2

(2014)
9 days ago via Flixster

I'm just going to start off by saying that Rio 2 sucked; I know the first Rio film was this fun animation movie that was good for a onetime watch, but Rio 2 is not even good for a onetime watch. Rio 2 is a movie that is filled with clichés, bad jokes, boring characters, sloppy storytelling, horrible writing and terrible direction. In the first Rio film the two main characters Blu and Jewel were kind of interesting characters, who worked pretty well off each other. Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway return in Rio 2 as Blu and Jewel and I can tell there trying to make their characters likeable and interesting, but the movie is so poorly written they failed at that. The rest of the characters in this movie were all generically clichéd and extremely annoying. Seriously every character in this movie are characters you've seen before in a hundred other movies, like you have the disapproving father character, the whacky friends, the energetic children, the menacing voiced villain and the douche bag guy who's trying to steal the main characters girl. I can't stand when a movie can't think of original characters, it's annoying and it's been done to death. The voice actors in this movie didn't even do good jobs, so Jamie Foxx, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Tracy Morgan, Will. i. am, Bruno Mars and Andy Garcia were all annoying in this movie. Another thing that was annoying in this movie was its musical numbers, I know this movie was trying with its songs, but none of the songs were catchy or memorable. I can easily blame this movie on a lot of people, but I think the person who should get the most blame is the director. Carlos Saldanha directed this movie and he was the guy who directed the first Rio film and as the first one goes he did a job with that, I guess, but with this one he did a terrible job. I guess just because it's a sequel the director thought he should throw more stuff in the movie and make the movie busier, which is understandable because with the sequel you want to try to be better than the predecessor, but this movie wasn't better than its predecessor. With everything going on in this movie it all just ends up being a mess, a boring and clichéd mess. Sure the animation and nice colors look pretty cool and I guess kids might get a kick out of this movie, but for adults they'll probably find this movie annoying. This is a kind of movie you throw on for your kids while you watch something better. So as a kid's movie, I guess it kind of holds up, but as an animated movie, I found it very irritating and at times really unwatchable. I would never recommend this movie to anyone, just because you liked the first Rio movie doesn't mean you will like this one, trust me on that.

Draft Day

Draft Day

(2014)
9 days ago via Flixster

I enjoy watching football and I enjoy watching movies about football, but since Kevin Costner has done two shitty movies already this year, I was a little skeptical about Draft Day. Thankfully this movie didn't suck at all; I would actually say this movie was really good. I don't think there was a moment in this movie I wasn't interested in because even know this movie has a lot of sports talk and statistics information I still found it interesting. I think this films strongest aspect's was its strong leading performance by Kevin Costner, its writing and it's editing. The writing was very good in this movie, Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph wrote the script for this movie and I think they did a great job. I can tell they knew a lot about the game of football and they could also write dialogue very well. The direction was also very good in this movie, Ivan Reitman, who has directed other great films, like Ghostbusters, Stripes and I Love You, Man, also did a good job. Now surprisingly, Kevin Costner was very good in this movie, which isn't a huge shock because he is a great actor, but because he did the movies Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and 3 Days in Paris just this year and they both sucked, I was kind of worried that he was going to suck in this movie, but he didn't. I think Kevin Costner should keep doing more sports movies, I loved his sports movies back in the 80's and 90's and I enjoyed this movie too, so I think sports movies are his thing. Now I got to talk about the editing because the editing in this movie was just incredible. I loved how they transitioned each scene together and I loved how smooth the editing was. Plus every scene when they showed two people talking in different places, I thought they edited those scenes very well. When it came to the support cast members in this film, I thought most of them did a pretty job, sure Terry Crews and P. Diddy looked a little out of place in the movie, but the rest of the cast members were good. Jennifer Garner plays a decent part in the film; she plays a very likeable and charming character, which was good. Denis Leary plays the Cleveland Browns' Head Coach and his character is kind of unlikeable, but at the same time you kind of agree with him. Denis Leary's performance was obviously really good because he can always play this kind of character. Chadwick Boseman, who did a pretty decent job playing Jackie Robinson in the movie 42 last year, does a pretty good job playing a College football player in this movie. Frank Langella and Ellen Burstyn were also great in the film, but like Denis Leary I kind of expected them to play good parts. This movie as a whole, I didn't really expect much from it, I knew it wasn't going to be horrible, but I didn't expect to like it this much. I really enjoyed Draft Day; I thought it was a good sports/drama with good writing, good acting and top notch editing. I would've liked to see more football in the movie since the movie is about football, but again the movie is also about the drafts, so it only focused on that, which is understandable. Still, I would've liked to see some more football, but whatever I still enjoyed this movie and I would most definitely recommend this film. Football fans will enjoy it more, but other sports fans can appreciate it as well.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel

(2014)
9 days ago via Flixster

Wes Anderson has always been a director who makes these corky, but stylistic movies and so many people including myself just love his movies. Now has Wes Anderson made some bad movies in his past? Kind of yeah because I wasn't really a fan of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and the Darjeeling Limited, but that doesn't matter because movies, like Rushmore, Bottle Rocket, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom are amazing films and there all written and directed by Wes Anderson. Now when I heard of The Grand Budapest Hotel, I was very curious to see it and I was hoping the movie was another Moonrise Kingdom and not another Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. I finally saw the movie and I'm pleased to say that The Grand Budapest Hotel is a fantastic movie. Once again Wes Anderson brings his corky humor in this movie, plus his very stylistic direction. The story revolves around a concierge and a lobby boy who work at a famous hotel in Europe, called The Grand Budapest Hotel. Now when the concierge, M. Gustave gets put in prison for a crime he never did, it's up to the lobby boy, Zero to break him out of prison and find the man who set him up. Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori star as the two main characters and they both play great parts in the film, especially Ralph Fiennes. Ralph Fiennes hands down gave the best performance in this movie because he not only acted extremely well in his role, but he was also hilarious from start to finish. Usually when I see Ralph Fiennes in a movie he's either playing a very dramatic role or a villainess role, so I was glad to see him change it up a bit and I thought he did a phenomenal job. The movie actually had a lot of good performances from so many good actors and I'm not even joking, there are a lot of good actors in this film. Bill Murray, Tom Wilkinson, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, F. Murray Abraham, Jeff Goldblum, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Willem Dafoe and Saoirse Ronan are all in this movie and they play good and memorable roles. Some weren't in it as much as others were, but I thought they all did a great job in this movie. I think most of the props should go to Wes Anderson though because he made such a strange, corky and dark story like this really work well. His direction was fantastic; he executed the movie super well and paced it perfectly. The writing was top notch, I thought the characters were well written, the jokes were clever and the dialogue was not only witty, but very smart. I really hope Wes Anderson gets an Oscar Nomination at the next Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay because he deserves it. This movie itself should Oscar Nominations, but I have a feeling it won't get much because it came out too early in the year. I can still always hope it gets some Nominations because it really deserves it. I absolutely loved this movie; I would even say this movie is just as good as Rushmore, which is saying something. I don't know if I would recommend this movie to everyone because some people might not like Wes Anderson movies, but if you do like Wes Anderson movies, then give this a watch because I guarantee you will love this movie.

The Raid 2

The Raid 2

(2014)
9 days ago via Flixster

When The Raid: Redemption came out in 2012 people were blown away of how cool that movie was with its awesome action scenes and great editing. I loved The Raid: Redemption, I thought it was a great action movie that was perfectly paced. I was waiting for them to make a sequel and this year they made it and I saw it and I loved it. The Raid 2 took everything from The Raid: Redemption and just made it better. The action, the acting, the pacing, the editing and the direction were all so well done in this movie. Gareth Evans can direct action movies so well because he makes the fight scenes brutal and realistic. He also puts a lot of long takes in the movie without cutting, which was really impressive. Plus he didn't put any shaky cam in the movie, which was great because I absolutely hate shaky cam and I hate that a lot of directors put shaky cam in their movies, but The Raid 2 had no shaky cam, so that gets a huge plus from me. Gareth Evans is a great director and I hope to see him in the future doing more action movies. Seriously, I can't stop talking about the action in this movie, it's so freaken good. Every single action scene in this movie was amazingly choreographed and I'm sure every action scene in this movie will remembered for a long time. Right from the awesome prison yard fight scene till the very end the action was intense and amazing to watch. I would even say The Raid 2 is the best action movie I've seen in a long while; it's not the best movie, it's just the best action movie. The movie itself is still great, but the action is what made it awesome. Other then the action this movie had some pretty damn good performances, like Iko Uwais returns as the main character Rama and just like his performance in the first one he was really good, I would even say he was a little bit better in this one. I don't know the rest of the names of the cast members, but I thought they all did a pretty good job, I thought the Hammer Girl was pretty cool, same with the guy with the baseball bat. I think what makes The Raid 2 better than The Raid: Redemption is not only its action, but the story was much stronger. The Raid: Redemption was just about a bunch of cops raiding a crime boss's apartment block, which was still awesome, but The Raid 2 has more to it than that. The Raid 2 is about the main character Rama, who has to go undercover in the criminal underworld to put a stop to the corrupt politicians and police officers. This movie has a much longer length, then The Raid: Redemption and at times the action scenes do seem to overshadow the story, but the story is still there and it's an interesting story. I know many people will be going to see this movie just for its action and that's okay because the action in this movie needs to be watched because it's amazing. I know anyone who loves action movies will love this movie, sure at times it gets really violent, but if you like action that probably won't bother you. The Raid 2 was a fun, violent, well directed and entertaining movie and I'm glad I saw it.

Movies this year are really surprising me because between Kevin Costner doing an awesome job in Draft Day and now Nicolas Cage doing a great in this movie, I have to say that 2014 is shaping up to be a great year for movies. This movie Joe I wasn't really expecting because I didn't know much about it, which is good because I like going into movies I don't know much about, it makes the movie more intriguing when you're watching it. This movie Joe is like watching the movies Mud and Gran Torino, it has some of the same story elements as Gran Torino, but its tone and setting feels a lot like the movie Mud. It's funny actually because the young kid from the movie Mud plays in this movie too. Tye Sheridan is the name of the actor and his performance in Mud was really good and his performance in this movie was just as good. Nicolas Cage however was not just good in this movie, he was really good. He's obviously got better movies out there, but performance wise this was one of his best performances. I'm not saying its Leaving Las Vegas or Adaptation good, but it's really close. Nicolas Cage put aside his whacky and over the top performances he usually gives in most of his movies and he just acted and he did a really good job in the movie. I also really enjoyed the chemistry between both Tye Sheridan and Nicolas Cage they both worked really well with each other, which actually made the ending of this movie all the more sad. I can't really go into great detail about this movie because it's kind of hard to do that, all I can say is that it's a really good movie. David Gordon Green directed the film and I think this is David Gordon Green's best movie. I thought the film was well directed and I thought the film was very realistic. At times the film can be hard to watch because it gets a tad disturbing in some scenes, but other than those scenes the film was still really good. I think if you're a fan of Gran Torino and Mud you might enjoy this movie a little bit more, but even if you're not a fan of those movies there's still a chance you might like this movie, so give it a watch and find out.
