Not sure if anyone was asking for a sequel.It's pretty much on the same level as the first movie but there's no connection. No mention of Mandy Moore or Claire Holts characters. The premise is very much the same except it's 4 girls now exploring an ancient Mayan ruin temple. The sharks are the best part. Only difference here is that they've evolved to be blind being in pitch black darkness. It does make swimming in an explored part of underwater that much more scary.
It's nothing special but when you have elements against you like killer sharks, tight caverns, and strong currents it can be life threatening all the same.
If you like the first movie then this one is serviceable enough.
Critics argue its the greatest comedy of all time. I watched it and thought it was so funny from beginning to end.
It's actually one of the more successful parodies of the 1970s with its brand of religious comedy.
We are all familiar with Jesus of Nazareth and the 3 Wise Men. But this movie has a twist of its own.
What if a non Jesus character didn't want to be the messiah? This Brian individual wants to be a part of the movement against the Romans yet he gets more than he bargained for.
His mother doesn't want him to be anything else or to think about mingling with the opposite gender.
Monty Python has a knack for comedy as well as casting British talents like Eric Idle and John Cleese. Everyone in 33 AD talks funny, has amusing mannerisms, and different approaches when it comes to believing in the divine. If there's another movie lampooning religious fanaticism by making you laugh I doubt you can find one better than this.
Even we have to laugh at our own beliefs on occasion from another perspective.
It's only partially a musical but the focus on the true story of this young Pakistani man inspired by Bruce Springsteen's music is very uplifting
Javid Khan lives with his strict old custom family in Luton, England.
His father is stuck in the past wanting only to work, marriage and not live as a factory worker for the rest of his days.
This is also taking place during the late 80s when Margaret Thatcher was prime minister, the Cold War was escalating, and tensions rose between white Brits and many Pakistanis.
Javid's only true friend is Matt who plays in a band and sings his writing for inspiration.
He also has a soft soft for a girl Eliza whose parents are wealthy and politically active.
Javid's wish overall is to go to school, fall in love, and escape his cage in Luton.
When Javid is introduced to Springsteen's lyrics he truly feels that the lyrics speak directly to him; he feels stuck, powerless, and wants to dream on his own. His goal is to become a successful writer even if it goes against his father's wishes.
Hayley Atwell as his teacher is really good in it too. She believes he has a knack for his writing to be heard to make a real difference.
There's even a great speech towards the end about how Springsteen grew up like a lot of unfortunate souls whom have had it rough in their upbringing
It wasn't just his American Dream that touched so many fans but many others around the world. Most of us came from nothing, pushed and worked hard endlessly, and had dreams that never came true.
But his songs knew how to speak to the ones who wouldn't let the world knock them down to have what they truly wanted to be happy.
It doesn't matter if you're Pakistani, English or American everyone has to dream in order to make it real.
Is a dream a lie if it doesn't come true, it's not a crime to dream, we all want to forget life sometimes and escape, we can build a bridge for our dreams but not walls between our families
These are great players here and the music they borrow from Springsteen himself is remarkable.
One of the year's best.
I actually found this one more enjoyable than the first film
the editing was very epileptic, a lot of scenes didn't last more than 10 seconds, most of the humor was flat, and the movie itself felt plotless until the end
thankfully a lot of stuff is fixed here
not only is the animation better, but the jokes are written to be more funny, and I really liked a lot of the newer characters
Red and the gang are back; Red is hailed as a hero for foiling the green pigs plot to steal the birds' eggs and eat them
of course he's worried now that those days are numbered and he'll be of no use anymore, afraid he won't be as loved when he started out
now things change when a mysterious third island called Eagle Island shows up launching ice cannonballs into their homes
a truce is then reached to come together and combat this new threat
Eagle Island is headed by a purple bird called Zeta who's heart was broken long ago now she wants to take over both Pig and Bird Island as a result
Red may also find romance with a genius bird this time, too
there's even a side plot about these baby chicks trying to rescue some eggs constantly in peril
truth be told I was laughing a lot at most of the jokes the writers came up with this time
Never actually played the app on my phone but the filmmakers get enough mileage here to make it so much fun
It's never bad to talk about your feelings and you don't have to do everything by yourself
A video game movie that is actually good to watch for a change!
along the lines of R.L. Stine's Goosebumps and Tales from the Crypt the terrifying stories that fascinated kids in the 80's comes to life on the screen
I was actually one of those people exposed to these books at a young age and even today they still send shivers down readers' spines
the movie is amazingly scary with great makeup effects, really well-acted teens, and is quite the nostalgia trip for people whom have already read the source material
with this movie several short tales are combined around Halloween; 4 kids come across an old manuscript in an abandoned house with a history of a woman whom was supposedly a witch, Sarah Bellows
little do they realize when they open it they unleash something sinister, whatever is in the book actually comes to life from a corpse looking for her missing toe, a scarecrow that comes alive, and a monster that can contort his body in any shape
Stella, August, Ramone, and Roy face some of their biggest fears in the process next to unlocking personal problems they keep buried inside
the monsters look terrific, the kids are fairly good, and I do like the setting in the 1960's with a majority of the American public in suspicion of communists, Vietnam war drafting, and with Richard Nixon's presidential nomination in question
there's enough here for kids and for older viewers to enjoy
stories can break us, they can help us grow, if we repeat them enough they often become real, sometimes you don't read the stories but they read you
there's potential to explore more scary stories in the future perhaps
for the moment this is a really good adaptation of a classic collection of terror for readers of all ages
