This is a good martial arts film. The movie stars Jet Li. One of his early films before he went over to Hollywood to make movies. The movie has a solid story and great action and fight sequences. You get to see why Jet Li is so great at these type of films. He has a nice blend of the story, action and acting to make a good martial arts film. You can tell he takes elements from Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan movies and makes them his own. If your a Jet Li fan then check this movie out.
I remember watching this film in high school. We read the play and then watched the movie. It was quite good. Roman Polanski made a good adaptation of the play to film. Worth a watch if your a fan of Shakespeare plays turned into movies.
This movie is set back in 1975 Brooklyn, NY. We the audience follow two teenage brothers who live with a drunk abusive father and their caring mother. Of course they are a poor family and have struggles to make the bills. The older brother Danny is in to crime and is the regular one to get beat by his father. While the younger brother Brian is trying to find his place in the world and decide if he will leave Brooklyn and his family to study as a artist . The story also has some others parts to it that fill in the rest. The story is quite well done and makes for a interesting drama. The biggest names in this film is Karen Allen and Stephen Lang. But they are not the main focus of the film. That goes to the young actors Nick Thurston, Geoffrey Wigdor and Leslie Murphy. All the young actors are excellent in this. The story and main characters are very interesting. I also liked the way the movie was filmed. Had a great look to it. If your looking for a decent drama then check this out. Well worth a watch.
This film stars Cary Grant as a doctor on vacation with his wife in a South American country. But he is sort of kidnapped by a dictator in the country and asked to perform brain surgery to remove a tumor that will kill him. But he does not like this dictator's policy with his country and how he treats his citizens. He is asked by rebels to kill him on the operating table. But his moral code as a doctor forces his hand to save this man. The story was interesting and had many entertaining parts. Cary Grant is excellent as usual in his role. Actor Jose Ferrer is also quite good as the dying dictator. Overall this was a solid watch. If your a Cary Grant fan then check it out. Well worth the watch.
Puss in Boots is a spin off from the popular film series Shrek. This is more of a prequel to the Shrek 2 movie. You get to watch the origin of Puss in Boots. The film has Antonio Banderas voicing again Puss in Boots. Plus other notable voice talents include Salma Hayek as Kitty Softpaws and Zach Galifianakis as Humpty Dumpty. I came to watch Puss in Boots but found I enjoyed all the characters in the film. The movie has humour for kids and adults to enjoy. The story was actually fun and entertaining. The animation is just like other Shrek films so don't expect any change to that. But overall this is a animated movie that all can enjoy. A solid film for the family to watch. A must see for those who loved the Shrek films. Worth a watch.
