An under-rated movie with charm and a heart but it's also pretty funny at times as well. Jesse Eisenberg does his best work since Social Network as a talented piono player heald back by his family problems with his drug addict mother. While Tracey Morgan is at his best as a drug dealer. Only 25% good reviews isn't fair at all.
Not as funny or ingenius as some critics say. The movie has it's smart moments but not everything in Warm Bodies works. I didn't buy that a zombie hunter would suddenly trust a zombie enough to go take a stroll with him to his place. Warm Bodies just isn't as well executed as some people try to say.
Hitchcock is a better film but the Girl is worth checking out as well. Toby Jones makes a good Hitchcock even if he makes him seem strange and creepy. What I mostly like is the insight on the making of the Birds.
A shoot-em up movie with non-stop action and violence, if there was more of a story I might have rated it higher. But it is way better than the Stallone movie that instead of non-stop action, had non-stop mumbling.
The actors are superb but in a sense it's over-rated since it doesn't work on every level. For one, Daniel Craig who was no non-sense in his previous Bond outings has too many one liners some are during unnecessary times where you think his character would be serious. While the last comfrontation between Bond and Silva (Javier Bardem) is disappointing.
Inorder to prove he's not as bad as identity thieft Diana (Melissa McCarthy) made him look, Sandy Patterson promises to bring Diana to justice. So, of course he must go on a road trip to bring her back with him to confess that she stole his identity. While two people with guns are on their tails to kill Diana for selling their boss maxed out credit cards and a bounty hunter (Robert Patrick) is also after Diana.
Of course you also have Diana and Sandy bonding on the road, when doesn't that happen in this kind of movie? Why the positive review then? Because McCarthy is f'ing funny and the movie is a blast despite the cliches.
Since the director of Valentine's Day didn't make crap for an all star cast to be in this year, Brett Rather, Elizabeth Banks and 10 other directors have. Plus, what was Chloe Moretz (Hugo, Let Me In, Kick-Ass) thinking, a talented young actress being chased by Christopher Mintz-Plasse with a giant maxie pad on a stick? ?
An engaging and well made film about the hunt for Bin Laden from 2001 until his death in 2011. Although a lot of it did remind me of the show Homeland but without the sex, family drama or whiny teenagers.
The people that probably won't like Zero Dark Thirty, are Obama heads that want to pretty much believe that he turned into Rambo and killed Bin Laden and that all the credit should be his.
A fabulous film about faith in god and the will to live. Irfan Khan probably should have been nominated for best supporting actor as older Pi who is telling the story since he is always captivating in his scenes.
The 3rd was more than just the same ole thing, but they all have the same ending pretty much. This one was just predictable and boring, they need to stop making them now, we all know there's never a happy ending in these films.
Trying to break-out Tyler Perry by given him a role that Morgan Freeman once played, is even worse than when Jack Ryan went from Harrison Ford to Ben Afflick. Replace Perry and the director and this might have been promising.
Predictable and pretty much the same movie all over again, yet I was entertained by the silliness. I mean Kim (Maggie Grace) keeps failing her driving test, yet when bad guys are chasing her, she can drive like Jason Bourne. While it's funny how Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills has no problem leaving his passed out ex wife on the floor with a "I'll be back for you honey" more than once when there's bad guys everywhere.
A remake to Burton's charmless live action short didn't seem necessary but this movie is everything that the original wasn't. For instance the original was very much just Frankenstein with a dog. This film though is charming, funny and clever and not just the original in stop motion form. Frankenweenie is one of Burton's best!
