The Town
The Town(2010)

Ben Affleck directs & stars with an A list cast featuring Jeremy Renner & Jon Hamm in this engaging crime/drama called "The Town". "The Town" takes places in Boston about a group of professional bank robbers who pull off a number of heists. They have always been a head of the Boston State Police Department. That all changes when one of the bank robbers named "Doug", (Ben Affleck) gets involved with a female hostage named "Claire", (Rebecca Hall) that him & his crew kidnapped. Later on, Doug & Claire start developing a relationship that leads Doug down a dark road that puts his life on the line with the cops & his gang. Now Doug must figure out what is more important to him before everything that he cares about is gone.

Seeing the "The Town" for the first time, my expectations were a little above average. After it was over, it exceeded my expectations beyond belief. I couldn't get over of how exciting & thrilling "The Town" ended up being. From the very beginning to the explosive conclusion I was hooked on the edge of my seat with exhilarating suspense & drama. Ben Affleck is on his way of being a great director. I found it amazing how Ben could star, direct & write at the same time. Affleck did it exceptionally well. I loved the way Affleck captured the gritty realism in this world that he created. He made you feel for everything that you were watching. Affleck knows how to shoot a film with style. One of the things that he knows how to shoot is a action set piece. When there is a shootout taking place in the film, you can feel the impact of the bullets making it seem that it actually feels like its happening around you. The shootouts are shot so well that the camera is steady where you can see what all is going on. The heist that involves robbing an armored truck is my favorite scene in the film & probably the most intense shootout I've seen since "Heat". When the assault rifiles go off, its like fire works going off. Even though this isn't exactly an action film, it features some of the most breathtaking shootouts in movie history. In my opinion, "The Town" is more of a character drama more than anything else. I think Affleck wanted the audience to feel for the characters in the film showing us how well he can work with actors. All the performances here shine. Ben Affleck has always been one of my favorites. Pretty much everything he is in, I'll watch. Affleck does a great job carrying his role. Jeremy Renner stole the show for me. He was just so into his character bringing his role to life. I didn't know nothing about Jeremy until I saw him in this film. Jeremy proved that he can outclass other actors that has been around longer than him. Rebecca Hall is another I wasn't fond of. I thought she was very good with her part. Rebecca brought so much emotion & fear making it believable enough for you to root for her character. Last & for most, the incredible Jon Hamm who plays the cop on Affleck's tail. I didn't know nothing about this actor either other than that he has been in a TV show. Jon can act just as well as Renner. They are my two top actors that have hit my top. Jon brings so much charisma & control with his character making him a blast to watch on screen. Overall, If you like crime drama's with a little great action thrown in, then "The Town" is up your alley. Expect to witness astonishing performances, great script & some heart pounding action sequences that's not to be missed. "The Town" is an expertly directed & acted sensational experience which makes it the best film of 2010.

5/5 stars

Live Free or Die Hard







Officer John McClane (Bruce Willis) is back in this fast paced action packed adrenaline rushed fourth installment, Live Free or Die Hard. John is now a Detective with a daughter all grown up thats not too fond of him. One night, John gets assigned to pick up a computer hacker named Matthew Farrell, (Justin Long). As soon as John gets to Farrell, heavily armored bad guys tear Farrells place apart with huge amount of gunfire. John & Farrell barely escape. With Farrell's life on the line, John is trying to figure out why someone would want Farrell dead, Later on, John finds out that a psychotic mastermind named Thomas Gabriel, (Timothy Olyphant) is holding the world for ransom. As John gets closer & closer to Gabriel, things become more dangerous and personal for him.

Live free or Die Hard is my favorite out of the Die Hard franchise. It is very entertaining filled with alot of high voltage action sequences that never let up. The action stunts were so real which made this movie even better to watch. My favorite sequence was when John McClane blew up a hellicopter with a car & he said he was out of bullets. That was the best memorable scene of the movie. Even though this one was PG-13, I still found it kinda of violent. You don't see blood when someone gets shot but it damn sure is intense. I don't see why everyone is complaining about the rating. I mean if all they want is McClane to say the F word every second, then sure. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed hearing this one was being toned down unlike the previous three at first. After I finished watching it, I realized the rating fit perfect. So with the PG-13 rating, that still doesn't make this one the least out of the franchise. I still think this was the best one where it had so much more exciting & thrilling moments. There will be some that won't buy the unbelievible script. It works for a film like this. It was still a hell lot of fun to watch. If yall say that the third Die Hard is better than this one only for the language, then you all are retarded. These movies were not made for the language. They were made specifically for the gritty action/violence. Overall, Live Free or Die Hard still continues to be my #1 film of all time. I recommend this one if your fan of the franchise or just if your all into action flicks.

Bruce Willis does another outstanding job as our hero. I just love seeing him having fun with this character. When you think of John McClane, only one word comes to mind, badass! No other actor has talent like this guy does. Bruce was made for acting because he always makes his character's believible. He's great in everything that he's in which makes him a legend. Bruce still manages to b my #1 actor. Bruce is irreplaceable in that spot. Long live the great Bruce Willis. yippie kay yay!

Timothy Olyphant was very dark & full of anger as Thomas Gabriel. I thought Gabriel was John McClane's worst nemesis so far. The fact that Gabriel had the guts to take John's daughter & tried to kill him. From seeing Timothy's performance in this movie, he is now officially one of my favorite actors. Timothy has the right stuff to play any character he wants. Hope to see him take on more evil roles in the future because I think thats what he's best at.

What can I say about Justin Long, BRILLANT!!! Justin's acting ceases to improve everytime i see him star in a film. Justin almost stole his film by his intelligence. It was defenitly a shocker for me to see Justin take on a role of a computer hacker who has to have smarts into knowing what he's doing. He definitely pulled it off. Justin is a well gifted actor. I can't wait to see him take on more roles in the future. Justin is the most talented young adult actor yet!

The young a sexy Mary Elizabeth Winstead who played John's daughter, Lucy. All I can say is she's on her way to a great career. Mary has a big future ahead of her. She also looks like she could pass for a model as one of the sexiest young actresses. Mary played her role very well & made an impact in this installment by portraying McClane's daughter.

Maggie Q who was Olyphant's hot asian operator/assassin made her character believable enough. Maggie is the first asian actress that can actually act. I just loved watching her kick John's butt & listening to her sexy deep voice. Maggie should pass for a model too. Hope to see her in more films such as action like this one. Maggie is one my favorite actresses that has a bright future in the acting business. Hope she keeps up the good work showing her acting ability & her sexy self.

Whoever hasn't seen this film yet, go out & grab yourself a copy either on DVD or Bluray. I would recommend it more on bluray with the high rating picture/audio it received. The only thing that sucks about the Unrated copy that its only fit for DVD. The Unrated one is the best because it has alot of scenes that wern't shown in the original. Trust me this movie is worth buying & adding to your collection. It's the best Die Hard yet and action film ever!

John McClane: "Yippi-kay-ay, motherfu - "

John McClane: I'm going to go kill this guy & get my daughter or go get my daughter & kill this guy, kill all of them.

John McClane: Mai? Oh, yeah. Little Asian chick, likes to kick people? I don't think she's gonna be talkin' to anybody for a really long time. Last time I saw her she was at the bottom of a elevator shaft with an SUV rammed up her ass.

John McClane: Yeah, you had to dispatch all units for all the naked people walkin' around?

John McClane: I know I'm not as smart as you guys with all this computer shit. But, hey... I'm still alive, ain't I? I mean, you've *got* to be running out of bad guys by now, right? Huh? Gabriel? Honestly, you can tell me. I mean, how does that work? Got some kind of service or something? Some kind of 800 number? 1-800-HENCHMEN? Oh, you know what? I bet you're still on hold with, "Can I get another dead Asian hooker bitch over here right away?"

John McClane: I could come and find you, kick your ass and throw you out of your own party. What do you think about that, dickhead?

Resident Evil: Afterlife

Resident Evil: Afterlife is the fourth entry in the video game movie franchise. After Alice's clones wreck the the umbrealla cooperation in Tokyo, the sinister Wesker ends up escaping by destroying Alice's clones along with Tokyo. The real Alice finds Wesker & ends up loosing gain of the T-Virus. Now, Alice must go on a journey to search for survivors who will help her take on the rest of the umbrealla cooperation & the undead before the infection keeps on spreading.

Afterlife is probably the best that has come close to the games. That being said, with the plot, acting & pacing, I can't say this is a good film. In my opinion, Its the worst in the series. Its not terrible but its far from good. Afterlife is decent at best & it should be glad that I'm giving it that. Afterlife opens up with a huge battle featuring Alice clones fighting against umbrella security in Tokyo. That just so happened to be the best scene in the film for me. After Tokyo gets destroyed, it begins to drag until 50 minutes into the film where the action picks up again. From there, the action is pretty much nonstop til the end. Its just not as thrilling like the opening sequence was. Still, the action sequences were fun while they lasted. Now for the plot. All I have to say is "Really? Alice looses all of her strength from the T-Virus but yet she still manages to act like she still has it being a human. yea, that makes sense. So I just went with the stupid plot and along for the ride, even though I felt awkward doing so. All your going to get from this entry is silly action that doesn't make any sense what so ever. I guess thats just the way video game movies are now days. No wonder they don't succeed. The first three entries were so much better & more exciting. This one just falls apart from what could have been the best one in the series if it hadn't been for so many holes. I don't know what Paul W.S. Anderson was thinking but that was not filmmaking. It seemed that Paul relied on effects & just forgot about everything else. I have to give him credit for some of the things he brought to this film. One, being the effects/make-up. The CGI was good with an infected zombie opening its mouth. Another was the zombie dogs. They looked disgustingly deadish. When they transformed, the CGI was amazing! Thats the way effects need to be done in every movie. So, Paul spent his money wisely throwing all of that in. I also have to give points for the 3D as well. Its possibly the best 3D I have seen. Everything was pretty much in your face. Now, thats what I call 3D. I think Paul also made a good decision bringing the character of Chris & some of the infected to life from the Resident Evil 5 game. That was probably his smartest move for this film. My biggest complaint about the film was the atrocious acting. It was so hard to watch these actors including Mila at times using these cliched lines. It seemed like they were rehersing for a play. Thats how bad it was. I can't really put the actors down for that since the director can't give them anything to work with. These actors have so much potential but yet the director won't give them a chance to bring out their star power. Overall, Afterlife is fun but still a fairly decent movie. I can just only hope the fifth one makes up for it by pacing, acting & plotting issues. Im still all into the Resident Evil series but if they keep turning out like this one, my feelings might change. I recommend Afterlife if your only a fan of the series and games. Afterlife is still watchable but nothing special. I'm giving Afterlife three stars only for the action and mildly entertaining experience.

Takers
Takers(2010)
½

Takers is a suspenseful heist thriller about a team of inconspicious crooks who are always one step ahead of the police force. After an ex-con mastermind named Ghost is loose from prison, he joins his band of thugs to bring down the biggest heist yet. When the heist goes down, the crooks come across betrayal & deception putting their lives on the line against everything they stand for.

Takers was a surpirsingly enjoyable crime/thriller thanks to the casting & direction of the film. The plot grips you from the get go & doesnt let up. The action hits hard when shown even though there isn't a whole lot. I still thought there was a fair amount thats really fun to watch. Takers is filled with exciting thrilling moments throughout the run-time of the film. There is one big action set piece in particular that involves an armored truck that I thought was absolutely flawless. Im not going to spoil it because its a excellent well shot scene that gets your blood pumping. There might be a few people that will complain about the shootout towards the end. You will either like or hate it. I'll just leave it at that. In my opinion, i liked it! It's different where it creates more intensity & grittiness without soundfield. You will see what i mean when you witness it. The acting isn't oscar worthy but its passable for a film like this. I was actually surprised by some of the new acting talent. My first one goes out to rapper artist T.I. Harris. Coming from a rapper, I thought he made his character believible. T.I makes a commanding presence throughout the film. T.I. actually passed for a criminal in my book. The second one is singer Chris Brown. Chris didn't really have much to work with where his character was undeveloped but when he had lines, he made them work. There is also a chase sequence featuring Chris doing his own stunts. It was a pretty jaw dropping moment where it was hard for me to believe that was Chris Brown doing all that. All I have to say is Wow! I think Chris has a career in acting just like T.I. does. Most people will disagree with me by trash talk saying thats kind of stupid. No matter what people might think, I will always stick to my opinions. Everyone else that is known to me like the incredible Idris Elba, entertaining Paul Walker & epic Matt Dillion held up their end. I do however think that sexy Zoe Saldana should have had more screen time. Zoe's character was just wasted. It seemed like the director only gave her a part for eye candy. I can't say I don't blame him since Zoe is extremely hott. As much as I find Zoe attractive, I still think there is more to her than her looks. Zoe will never get a shot to prove she's something more unless she can get bigger roles. The only complaint I had with the film was the conclusion. It leaves you wanting more wondering what happens next. It would be nice if they made a sequel. I think this is a start of what could be made into a franchise. Overall, Takers is far from great but it is a good show. I know there will be people saying that they have seen this all before. I can just say that this is one of the better heist thrillers. In the past, heist thrillers were not this entertaining. Takers is pretty much Heat meets The Town. I recommend Takers if you like crime/thrillers & the cast. Takers is an extremely fun gripping heart pounding action packed crime suspense thriller that will not be soon forgotten.

Piranha 3-D
Piranha 3-D(2010)
½



Horror Director (Alexandre Aja) that brought us "The Hills Have Eyes" unleashes terror once again about man eating killing machine piranhas that attack small lake full of teens who have nowhere to hide as their being hunted down one by one beneath the surface in this gruesome bloodsoaked gorefest, "Piranha".



As I walked into watch this for the first time on the big screen I didn't really know what to expect except for piranha attacks. Which is all I wanted from this. Apparently, Piranha had a bit more to it than just that. Yea, you get the bloody attacks which is sometimes hard to stomach. You also get Porn as the Piranha madness is going on. To me, for a film like this, I think went way over the top with the nudity. Its not that I don't mind some female nudity every once in a while where I am a guy but when you label a title about fish, thats all everybody wants to see. This isn't Girls Gone Wild. Which is what the movie should've been called with Piranhas on the end of the title. Anyway, I didn't really complain too much about it where the blood & gore was over the top, i guess everything else should be too. This film is defenitely not for children. I would advise the parents not to bring their young ones to watch this. Wait until their about 17 or higher. Thats the proper age to watch R-rated movies anyways. Piranha got slapped with a huge R in the case where it came close to being X-rated. They had to cut alot to get that R-rating was what I heard.



Anyway, I had a blast with Piranha. It brings back those classic monster movies from the 80's like Jaws. If I was making this film, I wouldn't water the rating down. It sits perfect with all the violence where somebody could really end up looking like that after getting eaten by hundreds of those Piranhas. That is a scary thought. Piranha is definitely entertaining escapist fun but not for the faint of heart. Just sit back & watch these Piranhas tear apart characters that you don't even care about unless your a guy that doesn't want to see a ton of Piranhas eat a beautiful model. I have to admit, there was a hotty in here that was rooting for to live. I'm not going spoil whether she survived or not. You"ll just have to see it for yourself. That is, if you can make it that far. When the Piranha attacks come, they hit fast & furious as you get to witness the razor teethed fish rip people to shreads in the most gruesome ways you've ever seen on screen. I thought the gore effects looked real for the most part. Some of it, it was hard for me to bare but as it went on I got use to it.



I thought the CGI in this film relating to the Piranhas was the best I've seen. In certain scenes they look fake but in some they look realistic as they can get. Like when the Piranhas are floating around, they look good. When their attacking underwater, not so much. I didn't mind that though because they had to make them look that way as in their not eating a real live person. I was actually surprised that everything else was over the top except for the fish. So if you like effects, you'll get really excited over that.



The cast pretty much stood on there own. It was good to see Richard Dreyfuss & Christopher Lloyd with their small camos. I like Elizabeth Shue even though It was hard for me sometimes to buy her as the Sheriff. Ving Rhames was awesome as her Deputy. The one who made it for me was Jerry O'Connel. The dude is freaking hillarious. There's something in the middle of the film where something happens to him. All I have to say, is when it happens, I was rolling on the ground laughing. I didn't really care for the rest of the cast as they were not as likeable as the others. Overall, Piranha is not what I was expecting it to be but it was still enjoyable. Thats all I can ask for a summer film. Piranha is definitely one to watch with a bunch of friends. Maybe drunk at that point where this movie goes beyond insainity. I didn't have to be drunk to watch it. So if i can watch it being normal, Im sure you can too. If you don't have a strong stomach, forget about watching this because you will be sick before the time it's over with. I would recommend this more for guys than i would girls just for the sake of the female nudity. Piranha is one hell of a exciting fun horror thrill ride that packs a punch full of over the top pornography & nonstop swarming bloodsoaking killer fish attacks.

The Expendables



Director & action star, Sylvester Stallone brings every action hero together for the first time to form this explosive action-packed adventure thriller called The Expendables. The Expendables is about a team of mercenaries led by, Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) who always seems to get the job done what ever the cost. After a bloody massacre where Barney & his troops featuring Lee Christmas, (Jason Statham), Yang (Jet LI) & Gunnar, (Dolph Lundgren) take out a bunch of thugs on a ship, their called back into action as a member of the C,I,A. called Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) hires them a job to go on a mission to South America in a town called Villena to take down a leader called General Gaza, (David Zayas) who has a number of soldiers protecting him. Meanwhile a drug lord (Eric Roberts) comes to overthrow Villena with his bodyguard (Steve Austin) along by his side, As the The Expendables are on their mission, Barney & Lee go to Villena to spy on Gaza where they meet a woman named Sandra who ends up helping them. Things begin to get bad for Barney & Lee as they get caught when the South America troops find out they are their illegally. When the drug lord & Gaza find out that The Expendables are on to them, things go bad to worse as they end up getting double crossed & set-up. When that happens, Barney & his team decide to complete their mission by getting revenge in an battle only they know can win.





The Expendables is probably the best action film that has came out since the 80's all thanks to Sylvester Stallone. Only Sylvester could think of bringing every action star on screen & give us action junkies what we came to the movie's for. Sylvester knows how to deliver the goods. The Expendables really packs a punch as were thrown in with strong action including nonstop gunfights & mindblowing explosions, & graphic bloody violence . Everything is here that you want from an action movie. The violence here isn't as pervasive as Rambo was but it gets pretty raw with the shootings & stabbings. If I had to pick my favorite Expendable I definitely pick Statham's character, Lee Christmas. Statham is just a bad ass when it comes to his character as he's the weapons expert of the team. You get to see Statham throwing knives at enemys which is always a pleasure to see. Statham pulled his character off nicely where it seemed he had fun time playing his part. Sylvester Stallone is always good in these type of roles. Their were times where I thought his acting was forced but I dealt with it. For the most part, Stallone & Statham had good chemistry making their friendship believible.



I had a couple of complaints with this film. firstly, is the title of the flick. which is why the movie failed at being the best action film of out times. When you name a title more than one person, then you need to stick to it. The biggest mistake that you can make is changing it up to something different. I mean, I know it was Stallone's film where he wanted to be in it more but come on. To me, it seemed like he didn't care about the other team except for Statham's character. Stallone & Statham were pretty much stuck together most of the film. I just don't know why Stallone wouldn't give the other chracters as much screen time as Stathams & his. So thats what i depised about the film because their was no depth to the other Expendables. What little screen time the other Expendables had was worthy. Jet Li showed that he's still a master at martial arts. What I also liked was that Li showed some acting ability. I think Stallone helped him out in the department. Li is also funny when he wants to be. It was good to see Dolph Lundgren in a big budget film again. Dolph needs to stay away from those direct to video & stick with these. They suit him better. Anyway I loved Dolph's character. Dolph was just as bad ass as Statham in my opinion which makes him my second best character of the film. Dolph also looked like he enjoyed taking on his role as well. Everytime I witnessed Dolph confronting Stallone, I thought of Rocky 4. So it was a real treat seeing those two together in the same film again. Terry Crews is one of those next. Terry is also one of my favorites as he makes the films his own by having fun with them. Whats so great about Crew's character is that he has this big huge shotgun with a grenade launcher where he just blows shit up. Its awesome when that happens. What makes it so fun to watch is the loudness of his weapon. Eric Roberts is another one that I loved seeing back on the big screen since his small role in the Dark Knight. I suggest Eric to stay away from low budget films. He's too good for it. I thought Eric played an evil drug lord. Eric made his character out of where the audience can hate him. So Eric did a good job at that. The weakest of the cast is prabably Randy Couture & Steve Austin. I guess where there wasn't anything for them to work with, that was the reason why nobody cared for them. Even the showdown between them wasn't interesting. Seem like that was what everybody was waiting on & they didn't deliever. What a said payoff. Maybe next time Couture & Austin will have a bigger parts & show us what their made of.

My second conplaint that almost killed the film for me was the terrible CGI during the action scenes. Seriously Stallone, you direct action great no doubt about it, but why did you have to use CGI where crap was blowing up? Some of the explosions looked realistic but towards the end when they blew the palace up, it exploded by falling down like dominos which was a dreadful to watch. I still can't get over it when watch that scene. Since I heard their doing a sequel, I hope they really fix that problem. Bring back the war action from the 80's where CGI didn't exist. Thats what fans want to see. I didn't complain about the plot as much because thats not what these type of films are made for. Its suppose to b all out action film, nothing more & nothing less. Thats all fans can ask for & by witnessing the action in this film, it succeeded in that field. Overall, if your a fan of the cast, Rambo, or just a junkie for action, then this film is definitely a keeper. I just hope the next one has a bigger budget, better plot, character depth, & better CGI if thats all their using now days. The Expendables is an entertaining fast paced explosive wall to wall action fest that will keep you glued til the kick ass finale.

Transformers
Transformers(2007)



In 2007, Michael Bay brought this live scifi/action cartoon addaption that made millions in the world wide box-office about a young man named Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) who is getting his first car which happens to be old camero. Once, Sam bought the camero, werid things started to happen where Sam is left with suspicion. All this keeps going on til one night Sam begins to realize that his ride is not what it seems. Sam finds out that his car is none other than a alien robot. Sam starts learning bout the alien robot as it shows him where it comes from. As Sam is with the alien robot, other aliens like itself begin to arrive to join. Optimus Prime, leader from the alien clan also known as the Autobots tells Sam that the reason why their there & that is to get an item from Sam to lead them to a crystal box called the allspark. While Sam is leading the Autobots on a journey for the allspark, another batch of alien robots come to earth to get the allspark too only these are not friendly that call theirselves Decepticons led by menacing alien named Megatron. Now, Sam & humanity are in the fight for their lives as they are stuck in a war waging between Autobots & Decepticons.

Transformers is a pretty big scifi action film. I wasn't expecting to get much from it but it exceeded my expectations. I didn't get nothing more or less from this film. I got just the right amount that i wanted which made Transformers a good scifi/action film come to life. Michael Bay must've put his heart & soul into this film as he gave us the best CGI effects that I have ever seen a film. The digital effects were just mindblowing. If i had to give this fim an award, I would give it for the effects. They don't get any better than this. The action scenes are beyond amazing. They have a centatn extent that enjoyable to watch whiles its on screen. Their are some pretty cool alien robots here that i actually have taken a liking to. If I had to choose my favorite out of the bunch I would choose Ironhide who is kickass with cannon's on each side of this arms. You'll see exactly what I mean when you watch the battle scene towards the end. Now for the film's story, ehh it was alright not going to say it was great but it wasn't bad either. Atleast they gave us something intresting to get drawn into for the run-time of the film. Overall, I really enjoyed Transformers. I think that many will take a liking to & expect more to come. The acting was decent. Don't expect oscar worthy acting but it was good to make the characters likeable enough. the film has some pretty big names like the young and talented Shia LaBeouf who is one of my favorite actors. Shia keeps on improving every film he stars in. If he keeps it up, he will go far which i hope he does. Pop Artist Tyrese Gibson who also gives me a good laugh. Tyrese is also another good one here. I don't know about Megan Fox. I mean she needs a little work but I think she can do better if she believes in herself. As much as Megan can't act for a lick in this film, she's still easy to look with how sexy she is. As for the rest of the cast, I did't really care for them as much but they all have a promising future in the acting business. Transformers is just set on incredible entertainment that has to be seen. So if you like scifi, action, adventure, drama or comedy, this is the one to see. Im sure yall will enjoy it as much as i did. Transformers is a huge scifi action smash hit that takes off like a rollercoaster from hell that delivers heartpumping action to start off what may be one of the biggest franchises ever.

Sam thinks that what Optimis is telling him isn't true till he reacts to something that hits his mind. When that affects Sam, Megatron gets ressurected by his evil decepticons that wants him to unleash one of the most original decepticon leaders of his find called the Fallen, a unstoppable decepticon where only Optimis Prime can take him out. From there, Megatron hunts down Sam by wanting to get into his mind to see what he knows. Now, Optimus & the other autobots must stop Megatron & his decepticons in a battle for the world by protecting Sam & make sure that the Fallen doesn't get free or life as we know it will not cease to exist anymore.

Revenge of the Fallen was a very good action-packed scifi adventure. This sequel almost beat out the first. It had the more action involving battle scenes & explosions & lots of robots. There's only one reason why it didn't feel it was great as the first & that was the over the top humor it had in it. I just don't understand why Director Michael Bay would put all that in a summer action movie when thats all its really suppose to have is action. I just thought that was just so utterly disappointing to me. I mean what was Michael Bay thinking about transformers? He made them act so stupid thoughout where they do sexual things & curse just like the humans do. Michael also thought it would be good to give robot balls. I thought that was going over the line right there. Everything else was good. Only if they left out all that humor, this one would be better than the first but it didn't come out like that. The reason why I'm not watering down this movie no more than 4 stars is b/c I really enjoyed this film. It's one thats just watch & have fun experiencing. I think what saved this movie for me was the battle sequences. They were off the chain especially the last battle that was the greatest I've ever seen in any action movie. That scene will defeniely go down as the best memorable action scenes ever filmed. There's nothing to say about the acting b/c this film wasn't made for that. It was only made to watch the alien robots battle it out & thats exactly what it gave me. Overall, Revenge of the Fallen is nowhere near perfect or great but it's really good time if you make it like that. Revenge of the Fallen is a high explosive scifi thrill ride thats filled with nonstop action that's driven with humor & astonishing entertainment.

Predators
Predators(2010)



Robert Rodriquez brings back everyone's favorite sci/fi creature feature in this hard-hitting bloodsplattering action-packed sequel event, 'Predators". This time, a band of stone cold killers embark a mysterious planet run by devious warrior aliens. Each killer starts being hunted down one by one. As this goes on, the killers unravel clues leading them that much closer to who & why that person would want them dead.

Predators definitely brought back the 80's feel of the first one for me. It was so close to being as great as the first too if it hadn't been for some chessy CGI with its low budget. Other than that, Predators turned out really fun & exciting while it lasted. One thing I was really impressed with, was how they kept the theme of the original. They didn't remix it or nothing. So that came as a shock to me as it put a big smile on my face. One thing that I couldn't figure out that was asking myself the entire time as the film went on was "Is this a sequel or remake? The reason I wonder about that is because the planet was formed into a jungle. Which so happened to be exactly the same setting as the first. I also noticed some similar scenes from the original. For instance, when Billy stayed behind & tried to fight off the Predator in the first one. Here that Yakuzza dude does the same thing only he puts up a better fight. i thought was kick-ass as the Yakusa cut the one of the new Predators about once or twice. There were plenty more scenes that felt like the first but they changed them up a bit so they wouldn't be exacltly the same. I'm glad that this is not a remake because the original does not deserve to be rebooted especially where it starred best action hero of our times, Schwarzenegger. I really like how Robert made these new breed of Predators so much different than the original ones. They looked more badass in my opinion. They were much stronger faster hunters. I also really liked the way they featured the original Predator in the film having a fight scene against the new one. It was just go to show what the new ones are made of. I'm not going to spoil which one wins the fight. You'll just have to see for yourself. In a way its predictable & then again it's not. All I have to say, is that it was a good showdown. Now, for the action & violence. This one is definitely & I mean definitely a hard R. It's probably the most violent of the series. Even more pervasive than AVP: Requiem which that one is miles away being as good as this one. You get lots of bloody deaths containing grotesque grisly images that are sometimes hard to watch. There's gunfights & explosions pretty much throughout that are staged very well. Their all fun & entertaining to watch. If you like blood/gore like me, than you'll think it's just awesome. To me, thats the highlight for these kind of films. The acting was good. Adrien Brody pulled off a great mercenary. His dialogue sounded like Batman but it was still bearable. There were parts towards the ending where I thought Brody was trying to be too much like Schwazenegger. I hate to break bad news to ya Brody, you are no Schwarzenegger. No matter how many steroids you take. I still give Adrien credit for holding his own. Alice Braga is one of those next as I found her completely attractive for a woman in a combat uniform. Don't get too many women in those kind of roles nowdays. I thought Alice & Adrien had good chemistry between each other. Danny Trejo had a minemum screen time as he wasn't in the film very long. Whoops! just spoiled that for yall sorry. Seriously everytime he's in a film like this especially with one working with Rodriquez, when have you ever witnessed him having more screentime? The answer is never. In From Dusk Til Dawn, he was a vampire he died & Desperado he was a vicious killer & he also died. So there you have it. once you see Danny in a film that involves hunting, you know right off whats going to happen to him. Last but not certainly not least is the magnificient Lawrence Fishburne. He probably had the best lines in the film where he brought humor & seriousness side. Overall, if your looking for escapism, fan of the genre or Predators, look no further. If you want those things, you got them. Predators is the second best in the series where its not that much behind the first. Just a few things to change that & it would've been right up there with it. Predators is a dark nonstop sci/fi actionier full of heartpounding suspense & glorified violence.

Salt
Salt(2010)

Salt is the new & better Bourne in this stylish adrenaline rushed action-thriller about a government agent named "Evelyn Salt", (Angelina Jolie) who is the best at what she does. One day, that all changes when Evelyn interrogates a russian spy who threatens to kill the President of the United States. The russian tells Evelyn that he has another comrade in the U.S thats helping him do that. The russian spy begins to look towards & tells Evelyn that she is the the same as he is. After Evelyn witnesses that, she & other agents Peabody, (Chiwetel Ejiofor) & Winter (Liev Schreiber) cannot believe what they were hearing as the readings from everything the russian spy said about Evelyn was true. Now, Evelyn is a fugitive on the run from her agency out trying to bring her in while she's on a mission to find out who she really is & who set her up by turning into a cold blooded assassin to prove that she's innocent.



I was very much pleased with Salt. I knew my hopes for the film wouldn't drop. They actually just rised higher than they were before i watched it. Being a big Angelina Jolie & action fan i knew it would succeed my expectations & it did. To me, I think Salt was last years best summer film as it was locked & loaded with entertaining fast-pace jaw dropping in your face action within it's run-time. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars from me was for the run-time & for some minor issues during the action sequences. For the run-time, it made the film seem way too short where the film just flew by & ended just like that. After the first 10 minutes introducing the characters, the film just took off like a rocket & didn't slow down for a second as there was no time to catch your breath. They could've extended alot more time with the plot & develpment with characters. The Unrated Extened & Director's Cut for the DVD/Bluray help those changes a bit. I just don't understand why they couldn't put one of those versions on theaters. It made it so much better especially with the Directors Cut where it was so much more intense & violent with the action as it was thrown in with blood when people got shot. I didn't really care for the Extended Cut all that much where they changed how the Russian Spy got killed in a different way but thats just me. Now, for the action scenes, if anyone is expecting to watch this with realism, you will not find it here. I'll admit that I was expecting realistic scenes from this film but it so happened to turn from a regular political action type thriller to superhero one. I think thats why Salt got alot of hate from the critics & audience. That was only a minor glitch for me. I actually thought it was quite intresting where it was something we haven't seen before from these type of films. So I think Director Phillip Noyce was going in the right direction with that. The stunts that they used to make it so unrealistic was not hard to watch for me. I just knew that something like that would never happen. There's not a whole lot here so i don't really see why that bothered everyone from having a good time with it. If I had to choose some unrealistic shots they could've left out, i would probably go with where Salt is jumping from vehicle to vehicle & her sliding down an elevator shaft using her arms. The second stunt is somewhat possible even though nobody has tried it but no way in heck the first one could ever exist. It was just so ridiculous & cheesy in my opinion but that didn't hurt me from loving it. The acting in this film was great I thought. I enjoyed everyone's performance. They all hit their mark & gave it their all especially Angelina Jolie which is why I'm sure most watched it only for her. Whoever said that Angelina Jolie is too old to take on these roles, think again. She still looks the same since her action breakthrough with Tomb Raider. No matter what happens, Angelina will not loose her sexy side. She will always be stunning & beautiful no matter what she age's. Even though their are holes that wern't filled in, that doesn't take away all the fun that Salt gives you. Overall, if your a fan of action or Angelina. You will defnitely want to watch this. If you can just sit back & turn your brain off for 90 minutes, you will enjoy the heck out of this film. In the end, they suggest a sequel & I can hardly wait for it. Hope they release it soon with a higher budget so it can be better if not the same as this one. Salt is a fast frenzy action adrenaline pumping extravaganza that will satisfy fans of the genre & Jolie.

Inception
Inception(2010)

Flixster - Share Movies

(Christopher Nolan), the Director of "The Dark Knight" visualizes this Sci/fi Action Fantasy about an extractor named Cobbs (Leonardo Dicaprio) who enters peoples minds within their dreams to steal information that he needs to complete his tasks before assassins put a target & eliminate him.

Now, seeing advertisements of Inception, i didn't know what to expect from a plot such as this. After watching I have to say that i was plesantly surprised of how much i was drawn into everything Inception had to offer. Inception is one of those films that you have to pay attention or you'll miss something. Inception gets you to think about a clever idea making you wonder what would you do if you could enter dreams. Don't over think the idea though. If you tend to do so, you'll get a headache which will make you go insain. If you can just go with the plot, you'll have a plast of how interesting this unique idea truely is. Inception is not for everyone. I know alot of people who have seen it couldn't get into it. I think probably because it was trying to be more than it was. Thats the reason people hated it b/c they were trying to figure out how the idea worked. Hot flash guys, the film wasn't made to understand what the idea is about. Inception was made to open your mind to get you to think, thats all. Overall, I enjoyed it. I think Inception should've earned a whole lot more in the box-office right up there with Avatar but thats just me. Inception is probably the best psycological film Ive ever seen & thats speaking the truth. I've never had a film that has interest me this much which is why Inception is great in my book. Inception features an all star cast that couldn't be replaced. Everyone hit their mark especially the talented underrated actors (Leo Dicaprio) & (Joseph Gordon Levitt). We also have two fine underrated actresses (Marion Cotillard) & (Ellen Page) that are sure to go far in Hollywood. The action, the sci/fi element, suspense, & romance were amazing & well crafted. Im really hoping they make a sequel. It might not be as good as the first but it will be worthy that could become the greatest sequel ever to be fllmed. Overall, if you go in with an open mind you'll take interest & have one hell of fun time. If you can't do that, well, then their is really no point looking into this film. Inception is a perfectly fresh sci/fi action blockbuster that is sure to go down in history of filmaking.

Knight & day is a refreshing new action/comedy about a woman named June (Cameron Diaz) who runs into a mysterious man named Roy (Tom Cruise) who embark on a plane where they start getting to know each other. Later on, June finds out that Roy is not who she thought he was. From there on, Roy & June cross dangerous paths as patrol units & assassins try to take them out as they race against time to complete their mission.

I enjoyed the hell out of Knight & Day. Tom Cruise is back in action & this time its deep. The action is almost comepletely nonstop for the duration of its time. Its fast paced where theirs never a dull moment in sight. I thought the action/comedy mized well together. You root for Cruise & Diaz as they get are in badass form trying to survive deadly traps they get in. You don't really get much of a plot here as the action & comedy take over. Theres really no time for it what little it gives the viewers. My only complaint about this film has to be the CGI. There was no need for it especially of how bad it was. I just thought the film could've done without it which would of made this a much better movie. Overall the acting, action, comedy & suspense is all great. I highly recommend this movie if your a fan of those genres. Sit back & enjoy the ride of your life. Knight & day is a fun enjoyable action packed hillarious romp from the get go that doesn't let up as it packs punches full of heart stopping suspense & adrenaline that you just can't get enough of.

Josh Brolin sets out in the west as Jonah Hex, a disfigured cowboy who has a supernatural gift that he uses as he's out for vengence for a man called Turnbull (John Malcovich) who took everything that Jonah cared about. Along the way Jonah teams up with the gorgeous dish, Lilah, (Megan Fox) who helps him seek his revenge. While Jonah is out to get Turnbull, Jonah finds out that Turmbull has a plan to destroy a town with a scientific invention. Together Jonah & Lilah will wage an all out war against Turnbull in a fight to see whose left standing.

Jonah Hex is just an ok film. Nothing amazing but have to admit it was fun to watch with it's limited run-time. Jonah Hex is pretty much a Clint Eastwood film mixed with ghost rider. i know werid but kinda cool at the same time. Some will dig his character & others will just dismiss him. I loved the cinemaotagraphy of this picture. It was good seeing a film that makes you feel like your watching an old western only with fantasy elements. For what Jonah Hex is, i enjoyed it. The action scenes were really well done & exciting to watch. There was enough of them I thought. My only complaint is the short length of this film. Which is exactly why i have no choice but to give it 2 1/2. I really hate to do that but I just thought its not worth a matinee or full price admission. Its a rental at best but a very high rental. The reason this film saved it from me from being an utter mess is Josh Brolin's performance as Jonah Hex. Josh did an exceptional job playing his role. He brought his character to badass heights where he actually made me believe that he can stick to roles like this. The other reason is the action sequences. For a PG-13 film, I have to say they were very intense & violent. Last but not least is the sexy Megan Fox. I just love watching her on screen & her looks wasn't the only thing that dropped my jaw. Her acting has improved which was shocked where I thought she could never cut it as an actress. Boy did she surprise me. AS of now, Megan still has her looks & star power. Overall, Jonah Hex is fun little action-thriller. Just don't expect too much when watching it. If you take it for what it is, you'll have a blast. Just please, stay away from the theater & rent it instead. You'll save alot more money that way. Jonah Hex is kinda a forgettable film for the most part but still full of satisfying entertainment for the genre.

Wesley Snipes is back as Blade slaying more vampires in this action packed extravaganza sequel. This time Blade teams up with a pair of vampires to take down a new kinda breed of vamipre called Nomak (Luke Goss). Together, Blade & the vampire pack must find out away to defeat Nomack & his clan before they end up destroying them & the race as we know it.



Blade 2 was full of pure entertainment value & had enjoyable action from start to finish. This sequel provided a good storyline, great nonstop action including gunfights, sword play, & fighting just like the first one but even more this time around. This is the 2nd best Blade out of the trilogy. I recommend this movie to all Blade/action fans. Blade 2 is one kick *** action/horror movie thats the best of its kind.

Blade
Blade(1998)









Blade is based on the comic book legend about a half human/vampire (Wesley Snipes) who must hunt down the one vampire named Decon Frost (Stephen Dorff) who infected his mother (Sanaa Lathan) & for making him for what he is. On Blade's mission, he saves attractive nurse (N'Bushe Wright) from a bloodsucker that ended up bitting her. When Blade saves her, the nurse joins Blade on his quest for revenge. Together Blade & the nurse go through the night hunting the undead by looking for Decon. On Blade's journey, he relaizes something is going on in the vampire ranks. Blade witnesses that Decon is wanting to be more powerful. When, Blade finds that out, he starts trying to find out what Decon is up to by going through the city looking for answers. Blade finds answers & gives the information to his pal Whistler (Kris Kristofferson) who makes the weapons for Blade. Meanwhile, the nurse is starting to turn & trying to find a cure for Blade so he want be what is no longer. Now, Blade must stop Deacon's plan by using his martial art & weaponary skills to slay all the vampires before its the end of the human race.





Blade is probably the best cinematic experience i've had & the best comic book movie yet. From the very begining, you are drawn into the story of Blade while having a blast watching him kick ass. The opening action sequence probably has to be the best i've seen out of any action film. What i loved about that scene is Blade interupting a bloodbath party by just standing there waiting for the vampires to notice him. I thought that was total badass. After the opening bloodbath, the action just keeps moving in a fast pace where it barely slows down. By watching Snipes take on this character, it seems like he put his heart & soul into it. Snipes also looked like he was having fun which is always a plus. When actors do that, it makes the film that much more fun to watch. Director Stephen Norrington did a great job about coming up with the story of Blade & especially his wardrobe & weapons. After seeing Blades outfit, it made me want to own it. I think its that awesome. Also would love to own his samarai sword which is the best thing about the character Blade. Without Snipes or the sword, there would be no Blade. Stephen Dorff played the perfect vampire leader, Decon Frost. Stephen made his character very dark & pretty much took control which takes alot to do in movies. I thought Stephen had great chemistry with Snipes. Its just a thrill watching them go at it. Overall, if your into comic book films, Snipes, or a hardcore action/fantasy fan, you'll love Blade. Once the film starts rolling you won't stop watching. Blade is very entertaining actionier. I recommend this movie for all Blade & Wesley Snipes fans. TWO VERY BIG THUMBS UP!!!!!!! Blade is a flat out bloodsoaking vampire actionier full of pure horror & spectacular fireworks.

Flixster - Share Movies

From the Director who brought you the crime/action/thriller Snokin Ace's brings another live action picture thats based on the hit television series about a milittary unit led by a Colonel named Hannibal (Liam Neeson) who resembles his squad featuring Face, (Bradley Cooper), B.A. (Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, & Murdock (Sharlto Copley) that only come up with one plan to complete their missions who call theirselves the A-Team.

When seeing The A-team, I really didn't know what to expect especially never watching the tv. show. The trailers made it seem stupid & pointless. All I have to say, after watching The A-team, I was stunned of how much fun I had with it. From the get go, your thrown in with so much action/comedy that makes the film extremely entertaining where you just can't look away from the screen for a minute. What made this film so fun & great for that point is the acting. Everyone looked like they were having a blast making this film by not taking it seriously but just taking it for what it is. Now, the movie does have its faults. One of them was probably the CGI. I didn't think the action scenes needed it. CGi just made it look way too ccartoonish but then again how else can you make over the top action. I just thought some of it was bit too much. Other than the CGI, the action in this movie is beyond excellent in my opinion. The A-team was probably the best action film I've probably seen since Bad Boys 2 which was like 7 years ago. Awfully long time to me. You pretty much getting everything you want out of an action film, gunfights, explosions, intense violence & etc. Now, with this being a comedy & all. I didn't know what to think at first but after I saw hearing the jokes in here, I have to admit I pretty much laughed my head off basically through the entire film as they just kept going in every scene mixing with action. So its also one of the best action/comedies i've seen a while as well. I thought everyone played their character's exceptionally well. Couldn't think of a better cast you could've done it better. I really hope they make a 2nd one which might be in production as we speak. Hope for the next one we get twice the action, thrills, suspense & of course laughs. I think they should keep everyone because they were good at what they did & i'm going to support them for it. If they do happen to end up casting someone different for each & every member for their roles, I will be very disappointed where i might not care to see the sequel or not. They just need to leave the cast that they have & prepare to put them in the sequel. Knowing Director Joe Carnahan, I think he will where I think he was satisfied with all the performances. Overall, The A-team is must see for anyone who wants to get entertained by an awesome cast that hits you with slammed bang action in you face.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer brings an epic journey called Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time thats based on the best selling action/adventure video game to the big screen about a young boy street rat named Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) who no longer has family trying to make it on his own. That Day, The King addopts Dastan & takes him into his Palace where Dastan is now set for life with fortune & glory. Years later, Dastan is known as a Prince of Persia who has grown to be a swordsman that has the ability to use extroardinary unique skills to fight in combat. One day, Prince Dastan takes a few of his colleagues to overthrow another Palace where he ends up finding a dagger thats filled with sand. Meanwhile, Prince Dastan gives a celebration for his father, the King that recieves a cloke from Dastan that ends up poisoning the King. From there, everyone thinks that Prince Dastan murdered the King where the his brothers & the Kings troops are wanting his head for what he has done. Now, Teaming up with a Princess named Tamina (Gemma Alterton), they must work together to figure out the conspiracy about the King's murder & the mysterious dagger that lies in their possession that could be the key to the future as they know it.

I was pleasantly surprised with Prince of Persia. I thought it was just going to be another crappy game addaption like Doom, Hitman & Max Payne. Apparently its not. Prince of Persia is by far the best video game film brought to the big screen. Now, I know that half are saying that they hate it. The only way they hate it is because they have never played the game. So it would be hard for anyone to understand anything going on in the movie where they haven't witnessed gameplay. I pretty much loved everything about this flick. It's mixed with all different sorts of genre's that make it worthwhile. In the begining, it draws you in & never lets go where your filled with enjoyment throughout. Prince of Persia takes you through exciting journey with Dastan in a race against time to save the world. I was astonished how every element in the game was brought into this film. When seeing the trailer, I had very low expectations. After seeing Jake do all his stunts by jumping & climbing on walls, I actually felt like I was actually playing the video game. I thought it was that amazing. I was really engaged by all the action scenes that were nicely set up & directed. Their were roof top chases & spectacular fight sequences that are just a thrill to watch. For a PG-13 film and coming from Disney, this is a pretty darn violent movie. It so violent that you actually see blood in some of the scenes. I can't say that I'm complaining about that but seriously Disney films are suppose to be for kids too & they throw all that in. I give a shout out to warn all the parents who plan to watch this with their children. If the children can handle the violence, I say its an enjoyable way to spend their time. To tell you the truth, most kids today love to witness violence on screen so it shouldn't be a problem for them but it might be for the parents. The CGI in here was the best I've seen. Their was scene where Dastan comes across an avalanche full of sand that was pretty neat which happened to be the best part of the movie for me. Another thing I liked was how detailed & cool the dagger looked. If they ever made one like that, it would be a must own for me to collect. Now, what held the film together was the acting. To start out with the cast, I have to give a round of applause to Jake Gyllenhaal with his shockingly portrayal of Dastan. Jake's accent was utterly believible just like the character in the game which made this film that much more great to watch. All the performances had something to like about them. All and for those that don't know who Gemma Arterton who portrays Tamina, I just have to say that she's one of the most talented & beautiful actresses out there. Gemma was just as good in here as she was in Clash of the Titans. You also have the magnificient Ben Kingsley at his best & the hillarious Alfred Molina who once you see, you'll think he could actually pass for an arabian. Overall, I recommend everyone who hasn't seen Prince of Persia to see it. I think even though you haven't played the game, you'll still enjoy yourselves. Probably not as much as the ones who know all about Prince of Persia but I'm sure you'll be right in there with them. Prince of Persia is not for the faint of heart by any means but if you don't go with an opened mind & just want to be entertained by this action blockbuster, I guarantee as soon as it's over, you will definitely get your money's worth. Prince of Persia is a cold hearted adventure to leave you breathless with excitement & cinematic entertainment from start to finish.

Robin Hood
Robin Hood(2010)

Flixster - Share Movies

Academy Award Winner Russell Crowe & Cate Blanchett take you on an epic exciting adventure thats sure to bring the classic Robin Hood story that we've all been waiting for. Russell Crowe portrays Robin Longstride, an archer fighting with the English against the French with the King's army including three of Robin's good irish archermen, Little John (Kevin Durand), Will Scarlett (Scott Grimes), Allan A'Dayle (Alan Doyle). After the King of Nottingham, (Danny Huston) gets killed in battle & his second in command, Robin of Loxely gets ambushed by a ruthless knight called Godfrey (Mark Strong), Robin Longstride takes Robin of Loxelly's place to return the Kings Crown to his Queen & Son John (Oscar Issac). Once Robin presents the crown to the two of them, the Queen makes John the next King. Face to face, King John doesn't know who exactly Robin is. Meanwhile, Robin goes to see Loxelly's wife Maid Marion (Cate Blanchett) to deliver the message about her husband's death. This leads to Sir Loxelly (Max Von Sydow) who wants to make Robin a proposition to be Marion's new husband so that Marion can keep whats hers. Robin excepts just for the meantime. As Robin & Marion have been seeing each other they start falling recklessly in love. During their romance, Godfrey starts sending his troops into poor people's villages to take their riches. Robin spots Godfrey doing that & jumps into action by going to war with him & his men. This all comes down where Robin must fight against the French by showing the people who he truely is & what he stands for.

I must say seeing a screening for this I was surprisngly shocked of how much I enjoyed it & got drawn into the Robin Hood Legend. Now, some might be thinking after seeing it thats it's not the Robin Hood we grew up on. News flash people, its not a sequel, it's a prequel meaning how the legend became who he is duh. So the ones thats been listening to these people who is feeding yall that stuff, don't listen to them. You need to see this one for yourselves so yall can make up your own mind about how it turned out. To me, I love the way this is going. It's different but its more clever than recent Robin Hood story making it seem more intense & realistic which I liked so much more. Ridley Scott knew what he was doing & he didn't disappoint, not to me. Ridley provided alot of realistic action as you would see in Gladiator. This was by far the most intense PG-13 I've seen. When the violence comes it hits hard as you get to witness arrows being shot, brutal stabbings & swordplay. Robin Hood was also extremely entertaining where their wasn't a dull moment to be had. The plot draws you into the legend where you just want more to come & not stop. I think it was one of the best movies of the summer with its sense of action/adventure.

The performance by Russell Crowe is phenom. I could tell he was going to play good Robin right from the start where he's so talented. For some could say they could see resemblance to Gladiator especially the way Crowe's hairstyle was. The actor is brilliant in this role where you could easily say he's a legend in the acting business today. Now, I'm not a fan of Cate Blanchett's but after seeing her in this it made me want to be one of her's. She's also very talented giving us a good Marion that we can look forward to in the sequel if they plan on making one. I thought Cate's romantic chemistry with Crowe was one of the best I've seen. They just fit, end of story. Mark Strong who portrayed Godfrey was psychotic menace who was just a thrill to watch with his disgustingly devilish ways. Mark hit the mark with that which makes him talented to take on any role he chooses. Oscar Issac who played King John was powerful giving a excellent performance almost stealing the show taking charge with his character.

Overall, Robin Hood is a wild & fun adventure for mostly adults if not youth's. If you grew up on Robin Hood it's definitely worth checking out of this new revision of the legend that you know.

Robert Downy Jr. is back as billionaire inventor, Tony Stark giving us a whole new big adventure in this heart stopping action-packed ride, Iron Man 2. Tony Stark is still doing what he does giving his fans what they want. Tony still won't reveal his true identity not even to his secretary, Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow). Tony is also still trying to make the ones that believe he is Iron Man, that he really isn't. Meanwhile, another inventor named Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) such as Tony hisself is trying to take over Stark Industries by coming up with inventions of his own. Along with him, Tony finds out that a russian comrade is out to kill him for revenge & he doesn't know why which makes him Tony's new found enemy who goes by Ivan Vonko aka Whiplash (Mickey Rourke). Vonko finds Tony & tries to destroy him but Tony takes him down & has him put in jail. Later on, Vonko breaks loose where he finds out that Justin Hammer set him free wanting to make a deal wanting Vonko to make his inventions more spectacular. Instead Whiplash has something different in mind. While all this is going on, Tony is having a hard time with his power thinking if he doesn't get enough in time, he will die. While, Tony is trying to figure out a way to live, he starts acting very strange where the people start to get afraid by him the way he's a danger to the environment & not acting like a superhero icon. This where, Tony's best friend Jim Rhodes aka Rhody (Don Cheadle) comes in & tries to deal with Tony's condition by showing him if he can't be a symbol to the people, that he can. From there, Rhody goes to military base & talks to Justin Hammer about coming up with the perfect robot that he thinks can be a bigger & better satisfaction for the world called War Machine. Things start getting bad for Tony when special agent Nick Furry (Samuel L. Jackson) comes & tells him that he doesn't like the way he's been acting so Fury decides if Tony doesn't change his ways he won't give him what he needs to be a true icon. Tony also has to deal with Vonko & Hammer wanting to take over the world with their new inventions. This all comes down to a choice that Tony has to make if he wants to remain a symbol for who he is.

Iron Man beats out the first by a long shot. This one offers more excitement, entertainment & especially action that before. From the begining, you're engaged with enjoyment as Robert Downy pulls off jokes around every corner, talking & using his intelligent gadgets in funny ways for of smart tones. I was amazed how much I got drawn into this one. I thought ever since i saw the first Iron Man, I was thinking that this one might be the same as decent at best. Unfortunately, didn't turn out that way as Iron Man 2 doubles up the thrills & action giving you a ride that you won't soon forget. Even though you get a breath from the action scenes here, it pays off in the end as when they come & his in your face, they do it with total extreme high octane fun. I didn't expect it to be over the top since the first one had to build up on but in here it has twice as much mind blowing stunts & effects that will have you jumping & rooting for more to come. I was amazed of what a cast was in here too. Of course theirs Downy Jr & Paltrow. Instead of Terrence Howard, we get Don Cheadle who did much better job with the character of Rhody who made it more likable & humorous. You have the sexy Scarlet Johanson who I was really impressed with as her acting was top notch as special agent Black Widow who was complete bad ass showing off some of her fight scenes, loved it. Talented Mickey Rourke who played Russian Ivan Vonko gave a mesmerizing performance pulling off an accent that would be hard for any american to do but I must say it was nicely done. There was only one actor I couldn't stand in this film & that was Sam Rockwell who played Justin Hammer. To me, he was so annoying where I just wanted him off screen. I thought the movie could've been better without him interfering all the time. His character was way over the top & overrated meaning worst character I've witnessed in a film in long time & thats pretty bad. Overall, if you liked the first Iron Man be sure to check this one out. I think you'll love it so much more where you'll forget you ever saw the first one where this one makes up for it. So go see it & have yourselves fun time watching the most enjoyable action packed superhero film yet.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Flixster - Share Movies

A Nightmare on Elm Street is an instant remake from the 80's original classic about lengendary horror icon Freddy Kruger (Jackie Earle Haley), a burnt razor fingered serial killer whose out for revenge on the ones who made him for what he is by torturing them in their dreams.

Good:

Going into see this remake, I didn't expect much which I was right but that doesn't mean I didn't get entertainment & fun satisfaction out of it. I most certainly enjoyed this horror flick. I was thrown in with enough jumps & scares to keep me on the edge & watching till the conclusion. Everyone knew going into see this wasn't going to beat the epic original & Jackie wasn't going to beat legendary Robert Englund. If Jackie ended up beating him as the horror icon, I would be shocked where Englund was a master doing horror. Starting with my good points, I thought Jackie was an exceptional Freddy. I loved his voice mostly of how dark it was sounding like some sense of demon. I like how they brought back some humor about Freddy which I liked because it stayed true to Englund's version. When Jackie made jokes they were funny & makes you have fun with his character that much more. I liked how this remake had a different type of storyline going for it. I'm not going spoil it for ya, but it gave me a bit of a shock as I was thrown in with the suspense about Freddy's legacy. This one was actually more violent than orginal which was probably one of the things that saved it for me. I have to congratulate the Director for notching up the violence up a bit where we missed it in the original. The second thing that saved it was the jumping points throughout. To me, I think it was rather appropiate since it is a horror film meaning suppose to be scary. I have to admt there were alot of moments where I couldn't help but to jump as it hits you with loud soundstage that brings them to life. I think the film provided some good CGI that came unexpected since it hasn't been too good in films that use it.

Bad:

Now, for the things I didn't like about this remake. I hated the way they took a scene from original where Nancy was laying the tub & you see Freddy raising up his claw up out of the water. I thought that was just a waste of space. I think they wanted to show everyone that it was true to the original but really? Next time you try to do something like that, make it a little different by adding something we haven't see before. The next thing is Freddy's make-up. I know they were trying to make Freddy actually look like a burnt victim this time but the guy looked really hokey. It was really hard for me to look at Jackie on screen where his face looked so disturbing & i don't mean in a good way. I think Jackie was better off in the dark where nobody could see him. I think it would be so much better to watch him. The last thing i hated was the atrocious acting besides Jackie. Jackie is probably the only one who saved it from being a complete disaster & that Thomas Dekker dude. I thought he was ok while he was on. As for the rest of them, they were terribly miscasted especially Rooney Mara who played Nancy. Far from a Heather Langenkamp. Katie Cassidy might be beautiful young actress but this role wasn't for her. I do have to admit she does have quite a scream when she gets scared but other than that she just couldn't bring her character to life. Kyle Gallner looked like a Robert Patinson sleeping walking through the role not even trying. Seemed like he wanted to get it over with & make fans happy with his performance. Well, I have to break it to ya, your not going to get any fans by acting like that. Just watching all these characters other than Freddy, you just couldn't get into them where you don't care whether they live or die.

Overall, I still enjoyed this remake. I just wish it was better than what it turned out to be. I was actually expecting this to be right behind the original but it didn't succeed that way. I think its right behind the Dream Warriors which is 4th on my list. So that would make this one better than either Dream Child, Freddy's Revenge or Freddy's Dead. Oh & the ending leaves you for a sequel. So if they do plan on making one, i'm so there because I liked Jackie as Freddy. I think this will be start of a good franchise since it has a different origins of Freddy. Even though it needed more to work with, I think sequel should take care of the mess. I know it will make up for this one & come together by turning out great. I recommend this one if your a fan of the series or Freddy Kruger hisself. Other than that, don't bother. I'll probably ending owning the DVD since I heard its having a Directors Cut & since I already have the nightmare collection. A Nightmare on elm Street is an entertaining thrilling horrorfest but don't go in expecting anything else.

The Losers is a unknown comic book addaption film that features a team of mercenaries (Jeffery Dean Morgan, Idris Elba, Chris Evans, Columbus Short & Scar Jaenada) who fail to comlpete a mission as they get set-up by a psychotic criminal mastermind named Max (Jason Patric). Now, the team has to clear their names by getting revenge using their skills to bring down Max & his evil plan.

The Losers is good fun filled action film with likable characters. I found myself pretty much entertained throughout. The characters have good chemistry as they bring a mix of humor & action to the big screen. I only have three problems with this one. I have never heard of The Losers before. I've heard about every comic book heroes except for these guys. The second thing is that this could've easily went straight to DVD with its low budget movie making. The only reason it didn't was the cast & the way the film looked just like A Perfect Getaway did which I enjoyed too. Last problem, is that I've seen these revenge tales done many of times. Good guys go after the bad guy & save the day, thats pretty much it. Still The Losers offers you fun that we've missed in comic book films. The action sequences were lot better than most action films too. I noticed they took some of the stunts out of last Die Hard film which is ok because I love that film. I think action was well directed here even though there wasn't really much going for it. The ending just blows you away with over the top action featuring explosions & gunplay that lasts about 10 minutes. Oh & I would like to mention that Zoe Saldana remains hot. I would've liked to see a little meat on her bones with her doing her stunts but guess we can't always get what we want. I recommend The Losers a rental or must buy if you want fun to had. Personally, I enjoyed it & I would be happy to own to my DVD collection. I think the reason I liked it so much was for the characters. Yeah, I would say if it wasn't for them the movie wouldn't succeeded my expectations anyways. Overall, The Losers is watchable for what it is, a throwback 80's action/adventure flick.

Kickass is about an ordianry nerdy type of teenager named Dave who one day says enough as he becomes a mask avenger called Kickass. Kickass has no super powers just his skills fighting crime. Kickass becomes popular real fast as he becomes an icon to everyone. When that happens, an underworld crime boss wants to get his hands on Dave & destroy his destiny. Kickass will not stop at nothing as he keeps inspiring his fans of how extroadinary he is by giving brutal beat downs.

I was throughly amazed how cool Kickass turned out to be. From the start, you get drawn into the chracters portion of becoming a superhero. Kickass is one of the superhero films that rarely comes around as you witness a ordinary boy kicking butt that seems like it was based on true story. Anybody could put a costume on & go out & fight crime but everyone doesn't have the guts to do something like that. In Kickass, the character doesn't care whether he lives or dies which is why I loved it so much. I loved seeing Kickass standing up to thugs with his braveness not going down without an ass whoopin. Kickass is very entertaining as you go along with the characters in this world just beating the holy heck out of each other. It's pretty predictable who my favorite out of the bunch of superheros here & that is Hitgirl. She was just a total badass with weapon skills killing bad guys in alot of gory ways that seemed unrealistic but fun at the same time. Warning: This film is really brutal as you witness limbs being sprum off, necks broken & just bloody violence thats spread throughout the picture that I found exciting but a little bit over the top in parts. Since this has an R-rating going for it, there is alot of cursing that may not be suitable for all viewers because it can be sometimes quite strong in points especially with sexual content thats mixed in with it. I still had fun with Kickass & I'm sure all you love superhero films will probably think this is the best they've seen by far. Kickass is an enjoyable brutal blast adventure of exciting fun that will sure to put a smile on your face if your in for alot of violent ass kicking pulse pounding nonstop action.

From Paris with Love
½





From the Director of Taken brings a new high class action/thriller to life called From Paris With Love. From Paris With love sets off in Paris where you meet a intel operative named Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) who is trying to get a promotion by inpressing the U.S. Ambassador with his skills. Meanwhile, the U.S. Ambassador gives Reece a shot to prove hisself worthy to see if he has what it takes to be an agent of combat. For that to happen, Reece must team up with U.S. best field agent agent Chalie Wax (John Travolta) thats specialized in weapons, hand to hand combat, spy technolgy & all talk to take out terrorist's who have planned an attack on the globe.



All I have to say for From Paris With Love is Bravo! Pierre Morel who did Taken last year does a fantastic job once again filming great action to make it classic. Pierre cranks up the action/violence even higher this time so the action genre can be worth your time. By watching the trailers & tv spots, I knew it was going to have a good amount of action in it that was going to be enjoyable to watch. I never thought it was going to be over the top action that would blow me away. From Paris With Love took out every action film I've seen in the last decade. If you think Liam Neeson from Taken brought down the Eiffel tower, think again. It's just wall to wall action every step of the way with no dull mometns for 90 minutes. The film starts off slow in the first 10 mins or so but once Travolta comes in, the game is on giving you flat out entertainment. This is buddy type film as Travola teams up with Meyers to go head to head with terrorism. Travolta & Meyers makes a great duo by having great chemistry as their both funny. There is very little plot here but for a film like this, story isn't the case. All From Paris With Love is action piece after another till the conclusion. This film reminded me of Shoot 'Em Up as Travolta goes in as a untouchable one man strike force. From Paris With Love is unrealistic in the same sense as the hero jumps dodging & sliding by bullets but thats what makes it so fun.















There are a number of thrilling action set pieces that take place in a chinese resturant, warehouse, apartment & high speed chase. Everyone one of those scenes are my favorite because they all have an extended length to them. They all have to do with intense gunfire featuring bloody wounded battles & explosions that will knock you right out of your seats. The action was handled very nicely where you can see everything going on without any cut shots. That comes very rare now days.



The language is very strong thats mostly used by Travolta & Meyers. The two of them basically uses the F-word off left & right. It's like their calling card. Everything the two of them say is pretty much funny. Travolta also has some good one liners that I found cool. There was one I heard he used in Pulp fiction "ROYAL WITH CHEESE." & another with his gun calling his wife Mrs. Jones "till dealh do us part." I thought that was hillarious.



I was pretty surprised with the acting here. The acting is not oscar worthy by all means but it was good enough to like. I was really impressed with the comeback from Travolta. This is where he belongs & should stay because the genre suits him perfectly. I liked the whole head shaved, goatee, & ear ring thing going on with him. It defenitly makes him seem different but in a good way. To tell you the truth, I perfer John to stay bald. Just something about it that I like about him. For his age, he should stay looking that way. For all you Travolta haters, yall's mind will change after you see him in this. Travolta is back & better than he's ever been. Travolta still has the goods.



Jonahthan Rhys Meyers was a surprise. Seeing him in other films I didn't think too much about him but in here I was shocked of how he portrayed his chracter. Jonathan did a nice job teaming up with Travolta that seemed believable enough. I also like the fact that Jonathan spoke good english for a british actor. Jonathan was really good making him seem a full american. Hope to see Jonathan in more roles speaking english. I defenitly think thats how he should keep acting.



You know, I love action films where the director thows in a hot chick to make it more sexy. There's a real fine french girl that I couldn't take my eyes off. As soon as she popped up on screen, my jaw suddenly dropped of how dead sexy she is. I really enjoyed the make out scene. That really turned me on as I wish I was in Jonathan's position. She's just so fun to look at & listen to her sexy accent that turns me on. Probably the sexiest girl I've seen since Olga Kurylenko. She has the whole package of great beauty. I can actually picture her in a Bond film. I know right then & there she would go down as one of the best Bond girls because of what she brings to the table. Hope this isn't the last time we see her.



Seeing this, I didn't expect a twist. I definently didn't see it coming. I'm not giving anything away if thats what your thinking of the picture above. When the twist comes, its so shocking that you can't believe it. It's probably the best twists I've witnessed. I loved it & sure everyone else will feel the same way. There was just one small problem I had with this From Paris With Love & that was that it couldn't decide if it was an straightforward action flick or a politcal drama. I thought it was great being an action one because of how much it gives you throughout. The political part I didn't seem to care for since it was something small they couldn't really use. The director just threw it in there to have some seriousness to it. I actually kind of liked it being serious for some reason. I think it made the movie a tad better. Overall, From Paris With Love defines action. If your going to see this for a good story with action, sadly you'll be disappointed. From Paris With Love is just crazy fun that will have action junkies begging for more. The fans will be pleased that they'll get exactly what they came to see. From Paris With Love is a fun entertaining stylish bullet flying high octane hard-hitting full throtle adrenaline rollercoaster nonstop over the top actionfest film-making masterpiece.

Death at a Funeral features an all star cast in this black/comedy about a family who gathers at a house saying farewell to their loved one. As the family is trying to get through the funeral in one peace, things start to get crazy as a occurence of unusual events take place that try to ruin the funeral for everyone.

Good:

Going into see Death at a Funeral, I thought it was just going to be another brainless comedy that doesn't come even close to being humorous. With my expectatiions, they began to change as I was plesantly surprised of how hillarious this film turned out to be. From the begining your thrown in with laugh out loud moments that have you wanting more as the film goes on & you definitly get what you deserve when you come to see this picture. Throughout, I was close to rolling on the floor cracking up. I felt like i was about to die over laughter where it was hard for me to breathe. The one that has me laughing most of the time was legendary Danny Glover who came as a chock delivering a performance that I haven't seen since Lethal Weapon series. I loved him in this playing as an old realative giving the audience a treat that they won't see coming. This being Tracy Morgan's 3rd or 4th film, came as a surprise to as he lights up the audience full of smiles. Seems that Tracy is rising to be a better comedian ever time I see him. That being said, I think that Tracy had good chemistry with Danny as they made it seem they were related in real life. The biggest shock of the film is probably James Marsden with never seeing him in a comedy like this before succeeded to be the spotlight of the film. We see alot of James & when we do he just gets funnier doing something ridiculous everytime. I can definitly see James doing more like this. It give him a break from drama/action films by doing something different for a change where I think he's better off doing in his career. The beautiful Zoe Saldana is always good to watch with her looks & acting ability.

Bad:

The things I didn't like about the film was that it was a little too over the top with crudeness & drug use. Even though it was funny, I thought they took too far at times. The other thing was that I thought this was all about getting through a funeral but it turns out that theirs another plot involved on James Marsden part. Throughout the film it concentrates more on him than the funeral & the other actors. The last thing, is that I was a tad dissapointed with two of my favorite comedians which were Martin Lawrence & Chris Rock who I came to see this film for that really didn't bring much this time around. It felt like they don't have the comic lines anymore where they just feel too old to be in the business.

Overall, Death at a Funeral is deff worth the watch. Just don't go in with seeing a good plot. The film was only made for the laughs & that only. I don't know whether to recommend this film as a rental or buy because its in between there. I would love to own it when it hits shelves but I feel I need to watch it again before I make that decision. So if your fans of the cast & you need alot of laughs for a day, I suggest you watch this one. Death at a Funeral is one of the best comedies of 2010.

Clash of the Titans

Flixster - Share Movies

Clash of the Titans is a remake to the original classic adventure/fantasy about a warrior named Perseus (Sam Worthington) who is chosen by the mighty Zeus (Liam Neeson) to go on a journey to fight the forces of darkness of the underworld controlled by the evil Hades (Ralph Fiennes).

Seeing Clash of the Titans for the first time i wasn't really expecting much since it was release before summer. After it was over, I walked out with a smile on my face & thinking to myself of what a good time watching an awesome action picture coming from spring. The film starts off like any other adventure film introducing the characters & setting up the story. It doesn't take long at all before putting u right into the action. As soon as Perseus starts his journey, the adventure begins as it smacks you with swordplay against demonic creatures featuring great special effects. What I really liked about the battle scenes was that they all had a good length where its hard to go away from the action. It's pretty much fast-paced full throttle ride from begining till end. This film is also very hard for a PG-13 in a way I'm surprised it didn't get an R for how violent it turned out to be. Clash of the Titans is probably the only PG-13 that I've ever seen close to being R-Rated. That just really shocked me as I witnessed scenes that contained intense violent bloody stabbings & some gore. The only thing I had a problem with this one, is that it didn't offer anything new from teh original. It had pretty much the battles against the monsters only they were a tad bigger. I guess with these kind of films your not suppose to worry about plot. You just turn off your brain & have your popcorn ready for entertainment only. The cast did an exceptional job. Coming from Worthington's 4th film, he's improving as he goes on to be one of the greatest action stars. Liam Neeson is always amazing giving his fans exactly what they come when they see him. Ralph Fiennes was gothic villian to hate which made him likable. Mads Mikkelson who played bond viillian in Casino Royale came as a surprise giving a performance you yet haven't seen him in which you think he could pass for more films like this one. Stunning beautiful actress, Gemma Arterton has a big future of how talented she is. Overall, Clash of the Titans is a must see for action/adventure fans surrounded by fantastic visuals with likable characters. Clash of the Titans is one of the best exciting adventure films of 2010.

Director (Jonathan Mostow) who brought us Terminator 3 reboots another film that revolves around robotics in this adrenaline rushed action/scifi/thriller called Surrogates. For years, scientists have been trying to find away how humans could live a better life. When those years past, they came up with the perfect solution which is to create robot avatar that can be controled by a human being known as a Surrogate. Ever since this invention was built, humanity has never enjoyed life better till a violent homicide murder of a young boy comes up. Two FBI Agent Surrogates named Greer (Bruce Willis) & Agent Peters (Radha Mitchell) get called on the case to investigate the murder trying to understand why someone would kill a Surrogate. While Agent Greer is trying to solve the mystery, the real Greer aka as Tom is controlling his Surrogate from his house. As the mystery goes on, things start get bad for Tom when he looses his Surrogate on a mission. When that happens, Tom goes out to get answers by completing the mission that his Surrogate started.

First off, let me tell ya that this film wouldn't of succeeded if it hadn't been for Bruce Willis. Bruce was rhe real reason why I went to see this in the first place. When walking into seeing Surrogates, I didn't have high hopes at all. I thought it was going to be just another scifi action film with no point. After I got done watching it, Surrogates blew me away. I never would've thought I would enjoy it as much as I did. Surrogates has an interesting storyline that keeps you intrigued by the concept all the way through. Thorughout, it mixes elements from different genres like drama, scifi, action, & suspense. There were some action sequences that dealt with chasing & jumping thrown in with special effects that were amazing. Even though their wasn't a whole lot of action, the action was probably the most intense & loudest that I've ever witnessed. Surrogates also has some humor to get a rise out of the audience. There is no way you can get bored by this film. It just keeps you entertained by keeping you wonder what it will be like in the future. I do have some doubts about the ending though. It had flaws like leaving you questioning about answers that weren't explained. What really inpressed & surprised me by this film was the performances. Everyone took their role seriously & did what they had to do to make this film worthy of its time.

It's predictable that Bruce Willis stole this one just like he does for every action film he stars in. It was good to see Bruce Willis back to his old self being the action hero. These are the roles that he needs to stick with instead of all those comedy movies that he's been starring in lately. This film puts him right back where he needs to be. Bruce Willis is the reason why everyone loves action.

The next one is Rosamund Pike who played Willis's wife. I thought this was the best I've seen from her so far. In Rosamund early film's she didn't really make her characters believable like she did this one. By seeing Rosamund in this, I could tell ya that she worked very hard making her character her own. She looks like she was playing herself which was exaclty what she had to do for her to come ou clean. I really enjoyed watching her beautiful self in this. I hope to see her take on more roles if she can do the same thing as she did in this film.

Overall, Surrogates is a fun faced paced popcorn film that everyone needs to witness on the big screen. Surrogates will have your heart pumping full of accelerating adrenaline that will keep you on the edge with spectacular excitement from start to finish.

Comedy Director, Kevin Smith that brought us (Jay & Silent Bob) & (Clerks] brings an action/comedy to life to the big screen about two LAPD Cops, superstar action star legend (Bruce Willis) plays as Jimmy & stand up rising comedian (Tracy Morgan) as Paul who are working together on a case in search of a missing baseball card. In the mean time, Jimmy is having trouble with his job drawing out money to pay for his soon to be lost daughter (Michelle Tractenberg"s) wedding. As Jimmy & Paul are solving the mystery behind the card, they find out that the card is worth alot of money which might be Jimmy's only solution to help his daughter. When Jimmy thinks he's set for life, him & Paul run into a band of gangsters that find out about the card that want to take it off Jimmy's hands. Jimmy will not allow that to happen as him & Paul must protect the card by teaming up by taking down the bad guys. Jimmy & Paul must prove by doing so that they still know what it takes to be a cop.

Seeing Cop Out for the first time didn't know what to except from it. The real reason I saw it is for Bruce Willis since he's my favorite actor of all time. After watching Cop Out, I hace to say I was not disappointed one bit. I enjoyed the heck out of Cop Out. It's definitly not a film to take seriously, only to have fun with & thats exactly what I got from this. The film is extremely entertaining with plenty of funny moments where you will never find yourself bored throughout. I thought Willis & Morgan had good chemistry as the pair of cops. Willis does what he does best & that is playing the good guy bad guy cop kicking butt & saving the day. Tracy on the other hand, I didn't have thoughts of him at first but seeing him in this, he was pretty dang funny even though we sometimes went over the top but I guess he just can't help that because thats him. The one actor who stood out more & stole the show for me was comedian Sean William Scott with his outbust of jokes. I just wish Sean had more screen time than what was given to him because he was pretty much the best thing about this film. Even though Cop Out is funny, it also offers some breathtaking action sequences involving shootouts & car chases that comes to extent. I think this film is only for adults because it contains strong crude sexual humor & severe language that may not be eligible for childern or teens under 17. Overall, the acting is good, action was cool, plot needed work but this film isn't about story. It's about entertaining you giving you what you want when you go to the movies. Cop Out is a satisfying popcorn brainless comedy crowd pleaser that will have you laughing & excited all the way through.

The film starts off beautifully as it shows cool shots of what the future could be like. Jude & Forrest are really likeable here as they keep you entertained with their job especially when they go over the edge taking down Repo's. The film kept at a good pace where it keeps things interesting. As you watch the film, makes you wonder what it would be like if you had to go through being a Repo in this scary world. However, I must say that I really enjoyed this one. Even though it was slow at times, somehow it still manages to hold your attention throughout. To me, Repo Men felt like Blade Runner mostly by the way the film looked. The film has plenty of exciting action sequences that are a thrill to watch. I had two favorites. One, was where Jude & 'Forrest go at it showing impressive skills using hand to hand combat. The second was a bloody brawl towards the end where Jude is taking down almost every union memeber that stands in his way with sharp tools. Probably one of the coolest fight sequences I've seen in very long time. When the fight scenes arn't going on, you still get a big dose of violence as Jude & Forrest are giving Repo surgery by taking out their body parts which will be hard for some to watch if their not in to watching that stuff. Jude shows that he can pull off any role especially when it comes to action. I'd say Jude & Forrest pretty much made the movie. Also there is a big twist at the end that made the film seem different which I thought was a new take on the science fiction genre. To me, Repo Men is for anyone because the film is mixed with all genres. So I say give this one a chance for what it is. Overall, Repo Men is bloody good scifi fun that gets you thinking & interested with its concept from begining till end.

When going into see Brooklyn's Finest, I didn't know what to expect except for great acting which was the reason I went to see this in the first place. When the film was over, I walked out extremely satisfied of what a great cinematic experience I got watching Brooklyn's Finest. This is without a doubt the most intriguing & entertaining cop/drama's I've seen in years. Brooklyn's Finest starts out slow for the first 5-10 minutes with a conversation going on at a cemetary but when you get introduced to the characters, you get drawn deep into their stories where the pace begins to rise where there is hardly a dull moment in sight. Each story about the cop's lives are interesting & emotional that keeps you wondering whats going to happen next. I loved seeing what each cop was trying to accomplish with things getting conflicted at the moment. For this film's length which is nearly 2 hours long, it never gets boring as tension gets built from one scene to the next keeping you entertained. This film seems different from most as it flashes back to characters live's instead of concentrating on just one of them. I was quite disappointed with Richard Gere's story as it didn't give me much to look forward to with his case. I still enjoyed what was offered with him though. Brooklyn's Finest is quite bloody & brutal for a cop film. I expected the film to be like that throughout the film but was ok for me because I don't like a whole bunch of violence espcially when it feels realistic. When the violence comes, it hits hard full of impact as you get bullets of blood, beatings, & just harsh violent aspects. Brooklyn's Finest is very dark cop film thats always gritty & full of violent content almost in every scene. To me, Brooklyn's Finest seems like its based on a true story as violence occurs on the streets of Brooklyn in real life. So I think this film sends out a good message about cops/gangsters. I don't think cops are at war with gangsters everyday but when they are, they get up close & personal with each other doing everything they can to win. This film also contains elements thats only for a mature audience only. Their were some things that I wasn't aware that I didn't even think was going to be in this film like strong sexuality, over the top strong language, drug use & more. I just think those things could've been cut down a bit. Now, for the highlight of the film has to be the wonderful acting. Gere, Cheadle, Hawke, & Snipes were at their best. They all make their characters believable for you to get engaged with their performances. Their the ones that really make this film worth watching. If it wasn't for their characters the film wouldn't succeed.

The one actor that stole the show for me was the powerful Don Cheadle who portrayed undercover cop, Tango. Just watching Don makes me wonder if he could be a cop in real life of how great he was in this. Don has come along ways since his other films. Don's last film I saw him in was Traitor that I thought he did a great job thinking that was his best of his career, unfortunately I was wrong. Brooklyn's Finest has to be his best starring role he's ever taken on. There's no other words that can describe Cheadle's performance except for amazing. Don blew me away as he took charge of his role bringing his character to life. When Don wants to get aggressive, man he can get dirty where he could just snap going the extra mile by getting his way. Don Cheadle is a lean mean tough machine where I would love to see him take on more roles like this one where he's the tough guy in a serious film. There's no doubt in my mind that he can pull off another great performance such as this one. Thats how spectacular Don Cheadle is & I know for a fact that their is no way he'll loose that touch.

Ethan Hawke is the next best on my list. Watching Ethan in this, I have to say he has came long ways since Training Day which he was good in also but in here, he's stepped up his game by giving the best performance on his career. Now, Hawke's story is similar/exact opposite to Training Day's only he's the dirty cop this time around like Denzel Washington's character. I really liked watching Ethan act as the bad cop. Ethan made his character dark & vicious wanting to kill everytime i see's something he doesn't like. Whats so great about Ethan character is that I can hate & like him at the same time. I pretty much rooted for him the entire time while he was on screen. It was good seeing him bang a few heads & gun down punks & he did it without no remorse. Ethan still has the bad boy in him which I think suits him more than any role he's taken on. Ethan shows he has star power still wanting to go all the way to be a legend & I actually think he can still do it. Cant wait to see him in more film. Hope he keeps bringing them to us giving us something else spectacular about him.

Wesley Snipes comes in third portraying as a believable gangster named Caz. Wesley has taken on characters like this on before but I think this is his best performance that he's given yet. I can actually picture Wesley Snipes as big time gangster. The way he wheres a doorag & has the blingage on makes him look that way. I thought Wesley Snipes had great chemistry with Don Cheadle as they felt like brothers standing up for each other. Witnessing Wesley away from world wide releases, I have to say I missed him. Wesley never does good with those direct to dvd films. Thats why he's so bad in them because thats not his cup of tea. I think the reason he is bad in those films is because he makes them that way where he misses being on the big screen which is where he belongs. World Wide is Wesley's existance where he needs to stay because he is legend in acting. Wesley belongs with the bigs like Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Denzel Washington & more. Not, those little flicks with bad actors. From watching Wesley in here, I really enjoyed his performance making me believe that he still has the goods giving me a good show as always. I don't care what people think about Wesley being in jail away from the screen. I'm just glad to see him back which I hope he starts puting his career on the line in Hollywood. To me, Wesley your still one of my favorites where your always be on the top of my list. Hope Wesley brings back Blade so he can be back in action. If not, hope he keeps starring in crime/drama/action films but only on the big screen.

The Brave One

Flixster - Share Movies

Jodie Foster gives a shocking performace as she takes the law in her own hands in this drama revenge thriller called The Brave One. The Brave One centers around a hostest of a radio station named Erica Bain (Jodie Foster) who has the perfect life with her lover (Naveen Andrews). One night, that all changes as her lover is mudered in cold blood before her eyes. Once Erica witnessed that, her heart was set on revenge. Erica goes downtown to buy a gun to use on the killers. As Erica starts her journey, she begins to question herself if vengence is the answer. Later on, she soon realizes that it is as she comes face to face with her inner demons confronting with dark enemies who interfere with her life. From there, Erica becomes something that she never dreamed of, an vigiantie of excessive force who will stop at nothing till justice is served.

First seeing The Brave One, I thought it was going to be another revenge tale of brainless violence. Man, was I way off course. The Brave One is more of an intelligent thought provoking thriller about Jodie questioning violence. I loved how the film was different. It's defenitely someting new to the drama that we haven't seen before. From the start the story draws you into Jodie's life & her act for vengence. The Brave One is very fast-paced where it doesn't have time to slow down. It pretty much stays on topic throughout the film which is the reason I liked it so much. The performances are great at best. Jodie looked like she fit the part of her character. It was good to see Jodie take on something different in her career for a change. I can definitely picture Jodie the bad girl type. I think Jodie pulled the vigilante type off well enough for you to enjoy the game she brought. The Brave One provides a bit of graphic violence in spots but nothing too underated. The movie has a little action/thriller going for it but basicially the film is concentrating on Q&A. For a revenge film, I have to say this is the weakest yet. Even though it has some violence going for it, just not enough to put a smile on action fans face. There's still some fun to be had with The Brave One, just don't see this expecting action every second. Overall, if your a fan of Death Wish, Jodie Foster, & mindbending thrillers, then you might like this one. The Brave One It's entertaining enough so you won't get bored while watching. The Brave One is an enjoyable story-driven edge of you seat adrenaline pulse pounding adventure that will keep you thinking till the very end.

I have to say after seeing the trailer for The Crazies I wasn't expecting much. Man, was I in for a surprise being blown away by how great this film turned out. I'm such a big fan of horror now all because of The Crazies. Seeing The Crazies, I didn't know it was a remake. Now that I know, it makes me want to see the original which I know I'll like just as much. I've been hearing so many people bashing the Crazies which I don't know why considering its the best horror film I've ever seen. So shame on whoever is dissing this remake. I know we all seen this zombie contamination spreading virus thing before but this is one of the better of it being more intelligent & interesting for that matter. The Crazies puts you right in the action taking place during a baseball when you witness a disturbing situation involving a crazed person. From there, the disturbance doesn't let up as the pace is consistant all the way through where there is hardly a dull moment. After it comes to a pause here & there, it just picks itself up again & gives you something else exciting to look forward to. I was so shocked of how much I had fun & enjoyed myself with The Crazies. After watching this, I just want to get up & go crazy. The Crazies features alot of jump & scare moments that just keep poping up when u least expect them. I can remember a number of times I got scared watching this flick. I'm sure if I watch The Crazies again, I won't remember which scare was where. They were so well placed in the film where you don't know which part your going to jump at. If someone see this & tells you that the scares were predicatable, don't listen to them. I'm sure they jumped too. Their just saying that because it comes rare in horror films to easly get frightened. I don't see how anyone couldn't jump with how loud the sounds were making the scares believable & not cheap. I think the scene that scared me the most was when this crazy dude was walking upstairs hunting for his family then disappears. Suddenly out of nowhere he jumps out of nowhere & scares the crap out of me. The audience I was watching this with jumped the same time I did at that part. Even though I'm giving you heads up on that part, you won't see it coming, trust me. Their were so much more but I think that was the one scare that got me the most. The score was creepy & terrifying & the sounds were very effective that makes you get into the film so much more. Alot of people are saying The Crazies is predictable but I don't think so. For me, it was unpredictable ever second where I didn't know what was going to happen next. That was the whole fun experience of the film not knowing what to expect. The Crazies defenitly keeps you on the edge of your seat keeping your heart pumping for more to come. The Crazies is the first zombie film I've witnessed thats not big on violence/gore but don't let that take the fun away from ya. Just because a film like this doesn't provide a whole bunch of violent aspects doesn't mean you can't enjoy it. However the violence is intense when it hits providing some bloody violence to be had. From begining till end, you'll be strapped full of fear the entire time by getting engaged with stoyline, likeable characters, exploding with intense high caliber action set pieces, & frightening horror elements. I think my favorite set piece was the car wash scene. That scene was so intense where it makes you think if you were in that situation surounded by killers what would u do or how would you escape from them? I love it any horror films when the action is taking place where the heroes are not afraiid of what their facing where they take up arms protecting theirselves by showing that they mean business when it comes to staying alive. The biggest thing that made The Crazies worth watching alone were the great performances.

(Hitman) & (A Perfect Getaway) Timothy Olyphant shines once again on screen playing a believable character providing you entertainment with his actions by giving you one heck of a fun show. Timothy is the strongest link here as he's the action hero with his funny lines. I love Timothy's work as he can be serious & have fun all at the same time. Timothy is one of my favorite actors ever since his first film I saw him in which was (Gone & Sixty Seconds). Timothy has real talent especially with his deep voice that you know right off the bat was made to act. Hope Timothy keeps it up inspiring the audience with his work. If Timothy continues to do just that, he'll become of of the best where he'll earn an oscar or academy winning performance.

The sexy & talented austrailian actress (Silent Hill) Radha Mitchell is next in line giving a powerful emotional performance making the audience get in & end up loving her character. It was good to see Radha back in action fighting for survival. i think these roles suit her the most because she was made to be action heron with horror. Radha does such a good job entertaining the audience kicking butt & freaking out. From seeing Radha in this makes me love her more where I know now that she has what it takes to be in the acting business. Even though Radha is an aussie, she is very good speaking english that makes her seem american. Everytime I see her spreaking english in films, I sometimes forget she is austrailian, thats how good she is. Radha's on her way up to one of the hotest & talented actresses ever to be on screen. i love to see Radha in more films like this or just something different that she hasn't took on yet. i'm real interested to find out but know for a fact that she'll succeed.

Overall, The Crazies is for horror freaks looking for a good scare & trust me you get just that. Don't listen to critics or other users. Just go & watch & decide for yourselve whether you like it or not. To me, if all you want is to be entertained watching crazy things happening over & over again then this is defenitely the horror film for you. The Crazies is fun, exciting, slick, stylish, horrifying, spectacular, stunning, riveting, shocking ride that will keep you watching & begging for more to come.

The Wolfman
The Wolfman(2010)



Director Joe Johnson brings the Wolfman back to life in this remake about a man named Lawrence Tabolt (Benicio Del Toro) who comes back to his hometown when he hears about his brother being mudered. Lawrence stays with his father (Anthony Hopkins) while investigating what caused his brothers death. As the investigation goes on, Lawrence unravels the mystery that a werewolve killed his brother. Later one night, Lawrence comes face to face with the werewolve as it slaugeters villagers in camp ground. Lawrence goes off & tries to hunt down the werewolve. As Lawrence is hunting the werewolve, the werewolve suddenly sneaks up & takes a bite out fo him. After Lawrence gets bitten by the werewolve, he starts to loose a whole lot of blood & begins to look real pale. As Lawrence is sick, a young beauty (Emily Blunt) takes care of him to help fight the pain. The next day, a specialist investigator (Hugo Weaving) comes to talk to Lawrence about the murders & how he was conflicted by the werewolve. Lawrence starts to feel werid the next 28 days. As Lawrence is trying to recover from the wound, he starts acting very strangely as he gets senses just like an animal would. On the 28th day, Lawrence begins to transform into a ferocious beast that will kill without warning.

When going to see the Wolfman, I went in with high expectations beacuse I thought it would be a great remake that would bring back classic horror to high standards. In the end, my expectations didn't turn out the way I wanted it too but still liked it for what it was. The Wolfman was definitly the best remake I've seen in quite sometime. The story was driven with good plot to keep you interested just like the original. From the start you get drawn to the plot as its intriguing. The Wolfman opens up as Lawrence's brother is being hunted by a wolfman. I was sorta disappointed by the fact that it didn't show how the victim was slaughtered by the Wolfman. The only thing we hear a bout the victim is that he was ripped to pieces & have eaten. So that really bugged me the way the director cut that scene. As for the rest of the film, we get to see all the shots of graphic violence that the Wolfman causes. When the violence comes, its top notch as in pretty much over the top bloody violence/gore. You get heads arms, legs ripped off & thrown around like crazy. Some of the shots of gore are fast but didn't bother me because they wern't cut where you could see the violence taking place. From there, the pace seems to never seems to drift off. It sometimes gets slow in parts but then picks up as it goes on so it won't get boring. The film does have alot of socializing here but its not too long before the Wolfman comes on screen & when he does he takes action with death's he causes wth a big body count. I must say I really enjoyed the adventure the Joe Johnson provided for thsi film. I don't know how, but he made this film fun as heck. The Wolfman man seens make you jump quite a bit with his loud roar unexpected attacks. I loved the CGI as the Wolfman moves. Its the best CGI I've seen in really any film. The Wolfman's transformation was sick in which it couldn't been any better. Now, thats what I call great effects. I was also good that The Wolfman wasn't CGI. I've hated werewolves in recent films that's been using effect. I think they just go way too much with the CGI making the werewolve seem very fake. I'm glad Joe Johnson made the Wolfman seem realistic. Thats exactly what I wanted & the Joe gave it to me. I think what held this film together was the beautiful art of the atmosphere in the back ground. I think that set the right mood for this picture where the audience can be stuck watching throughout the film. I think the mood created The Wolfman's style. It's just like The Wolfman's own little park where he gets to have fun causing mayhem. Where the dissapointment comes in is with the chracters. Even thought the acting is believable enough from our main stars featuring Benicio Del Toro, legendary Sir Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving, & Emily Blunt, their is no development from them at all. Their's no real introduction where we don't know anything about anybody. Benico just shows up in his own town in which his character's rushed with no moral sense of value as the same goes with everyone else. I just thought that was messed up from a film like The Wolfman. I know for a fact that the original had character development that really made the film. With this remake chracters are not the case. The Wolfman is just rushed plot with slow moments then action, slow, then action starts back up again. I thought it was werid the way the director did this film but still liked the way he accomplished things. From a director like Joe Johnson, story doesn't really apply. Joe Johnson is all about fun & adventure for you to enjoy & thats what I like about him wanting the audience to have a good time watching a wild animal on the loose wrecking havoc. Overall, The Wolfman is worth the watch if not twice. It's an experience that everyone needs to witness for true horror. So if your up for alot of gory moments/adventure/action-packed sequences., then Wolfman is your thing. Thats really all The Wolfman is fun time at the movies. The Wolfman is fun, slick, scary good classic horror/thriller filled with unexpected twists & spectacular action from start to finish.

Avatar(2009)







James Cameron returns after 12 years to bring back science fiction to a whole new futuristic level full of amazing visuals in this sci/fi epic called Avatar. Avatar takes place in the not too distant future where a paralyzed ex-marine named Jake Sulley (Sam Worthington) gets called to help the military with a mission on a planet called Pandora. The military gives Jake the chance to get his legs back by going undercover as an avatar to get in with these creatures called the Navi by leading them to death. As Jake is with the Navi, he meets a Navi warrior named Nyterri (Zoe Saldana) who teaches him their ways of their tribe. Later on, Jake falls in love with Nyterri while the military discovers that Jake has betrayed his own kind. Jake starts an all out war with the military where he must fight with his new race to save their existance.







Avatar is one of the best films I've seen in 2009. It's James Cameron best work since Titanic. Avatar goes beyond anything you've ever seen before. Avatar is the best concept that I've ever heard in science fiction. I found it extremely moving. The way James Cameron comes up with these things is amazing. The art & score in this film is beautiful. Those two subjects are glorious in which carries the whole film. Everything in this film is realistic which made it great & fun to watch. The characters were outstanding with very good dialogue. I was shocked with a run-time this big for this film would have such a fast-pace. From the start, you get right into the action as Jake gets right to the mission to explore a fantasy world. Avatar is just exciting as the film takes you on a ride through a planet that hooks to you where you can't take your eyes off the screen. I didn't get to see this film in 3-D but I'm sure its just as good as 2-D. The film has moments of gripping adventure & epic action sequences that will blow you away. When the action comes, its fast & furious where its a blast to experience. The ending battle sequence is adrenaline rush that you can't get enough where you keep begging for more. It's filled with everything that you could possibly want in a battle featuring heart stopping gunfights, high octane explosions, flying ships & robots with high amunition, & bow arrow fights. All the characters makes this film great * worth watching with their believable roles they take on. The film has a number of great actors including some lengendary ones like "Aliens" Sigorney Weaver & the hostile Stephen Lang.



The one that did the best job I think was Austrailian Sam Worthington who portrayed Jake Sulley. This dude gets better & better in every film he stars in. Sam was good in Terminator Salvation but was a little off in some lines. In Avatar he's close to perfection where he takes on an english accent that makes him seem American. Sam even kicks more butt this time around making him seem closer & closer to one of the best action stars out there. I can't wait to see him in his next starring role in Clash of Titans. I have a big feeling that Sam is going to very big in the future. Hope he reaches that goal.



Zoe Saldana is the next best who played Nyterri. I tell ya this actress is very talented in everything she does. In every film I've seen her in, she doesn't disappoint as she makes her films entertaining by watching her act. She is a beauiful african american woman who takes on a different language in here making it seem very believable in her own way. I was amazed of the way she spoke the language. That shows me that Zoe can do anything she sets her mind on. Hope to see her in more starring roles. Zoe has a big future in movie business heading towards her. To tell you the truth, I feel she is already there, she's that good. Everyone else is good too in their performances but I think those two stood out more.

Overall, Avatar is worth the price of admission where you won't want a refund. I don't know what to tell ya about the 3-D version but I'm sure its just amazing as I said before. So if you in great film-making sci/fi/action/adventure this is right up your alley. Grab some popcorn & strap yourselves down & enjoy a ride that you won't soon forget. Avatar is a pure of heart sci/fi epic advenure with fascinating concept filled with wonderful performances & plenty of epic action sequences that will leave you breathless that you want to experience all over again.

I just got back from a screening of The Book of Eli & it was totally awesome. From the trailer's, I thought it wasn't going to be that great or have alot going for it but I tell ya after it was over, this film became on my top list. i felt real inspired by the events that took place in the film such as the engaging plot, thrilling action, & wonderful acting. I loved the stylish look of the film which I thought made it that much more fun to watch. Like the way the Directors used that certain use of color to make the world to make it look dark & scary b/c the world might look like that way one day in a wasteland. From the start The Book of Eli pulls you in to the story by gripping you as you go on an exciting adventure with Eli on a quest for survival. I was really surprised of how much enjoyed this film. I didn't think it was going to have alot of action but it did & it was nonstop pretty much all the way through as you see Denzel kick butt through explosive shootouts, brutal killing with a machete & bow & arrows. This film brought a mix of genres into one where one point it feels like a road film,western with guns blazing, & superhero film which I thought made the film better to watch. There's also alot of shocks in this film. There was two in the very begining where a cat comes in & Denzel nails with his crossbow. It went through slow-motion style & then let loose fast into & killed the cat. So cat lovers will be slightly hurt b/c of that part. The last shocker was Eli surrounded by these cannibals & one of them comes up & touches Eli & Eli warns that guy not to touch him again or he wont get it back. Out of nowhere, he brings his machete up real fast & slices his hand clear off. Man, I wasn't expecting that at all. I was surprised of how violent this film was considering the fact of the rating. Its rated R for some brutal violence & language. I really think they messed up that part b/c theres gore to b ehad here also. The movie should of been just brutal violence instead of just some. Thats why I wasn't too sure if this movie was going to have alot of action/violence b/c of rating. Anyway, I can tell ya its violent enough where you see hands & heads severed, bloody shots, grisly images, sexual & rape scene, quite a bit of strong profanity. The Book of Eli is also very entertaining so you don't have to be worried bout being through boredom. The film was almost perfect in my opinion if only they only put more thought in the premise. In the third act, it becomes to slow down a bit & reveals a twist that you don't see coming asking yourself "what the heck is going on?" where things don't quite don't add up making it seem impossible. The twist still shocked me but I was hoping that it would have more to it than what they gave us but I thought i was still satisfying. It's different in a case that i haven't heard before but in a good way though making it intriguing. I just wish the twist was very unique & intelligent but no movie is perfect so I guess thats why they through that in there but I still liked how it worked out. Oh & after you watch this film, you may want answers to questions that were left unanswered throughout the film. So the film is not without it's flaws but what movie isn't.

The one thing I enjoyed most about this film was the acting that came by surprise from everyone on screen. I can tell ya that Denzel stole the show 100%. Denzel gives the best performace of his career there was no doubt in my mind that he was going to succeed through his acting ability b/c he's always great on screen, doesnt matter wat he takes on. he really kicks butt in this one. it was good to see denzel take on something different & he did exceptiionally well with it. like to see him take on more roles like this one.



Gary Oldman is who came in second for me with his great performance taking on a psychotic bad guy. Gary went over the top sometimes just like he always does on a character like this. He's really good at it though. I enjoyed his character of how abusive & hardcore he was. I have to say that this is his best performace I've seen by him. Gary did what he had to do & that was make the audience dig what he had to offer which was entertaining.

Mila Kunis has came along ways from her acting skills. Mila is really on target here as she plays herself as a sexy & stunning character. I admit from seeing her in her last action flick Max Payne, I thought she wasn't too good so I thought could she be the same way here. Nope, she wasn't. Mila gives the best performace of her career also where she shows the audience that she has star power willing to do anything when she sets her mind on to it. This was a very good start for her. Hope Mila keeps it going b/c I have a feeling if she does, she's going to be a very good actress one day. She just needs to keep doing way she's doing & she'll get there where everyone will be a fan of hers which by this film they already are.

Lastly but certainly not least is the biggest surprise in the film, Ray Stevenson. Witnessing Ray in Punisher War Zone, I knew he had acting skills but wasn't sure if he was quite there yet realizing that that was his first American film. Ray starring in this changed my mind about the subject as he brings a fresh new taste to his acting where he gets more lines than his last film. I can tell ya, that Ray is on his way to Hollywood being a talented actor. It was good to see him talk more & above everything else stick with the action genre which suits him well. Ray kicked butt in this film hunting down Eli with automatic machine guns & his character was so believalbe of how he was risking to get what he wanted. Hope to see Ray stay with the genre of action & take on a role where he's the lead actor & see just what he can do to make up for the Punisher role giving more lines & embrassing the audience with his phenomal acting ability.

There were more actors that gave into their characters but they had smaller roles like the sexy Jennifer Beals that we haven't seen in a long time playing a belivible blind woman who was really good. Her heart was set on emotion for her daughter doing everything to protect her from Gary.

Michael Gambon who we haven't seen play in a film like this was given probably one of the smallest roles of the film that gives a surprisngly appearence. While Michael was on screen he was cool & funny with jokes making the audience dig his character.

Michael McDowell was only at the end who didn't really do much with his character so I couldn't really get into him as much as the others.

Overall, The Book of Eli is fantastic piece of filmaking with great acting, score & action. This film is especially very good movie for Christians if they can handle quite a bit of violence & language. It asks you about faith & how you think the world will be with it against good vs. evil. So if your into religion, breathtaking action or just want to be entertained. I recommend you go see this. To me, I think everyone will dig this film as it brings something new to the table with its twist. The Book of Eli is a breath of fresh air to kick off action films for 2010. The Book of eli is sensational, visually stunning, action-packed, engaing, & well made film. I give The Book of Eli 4 1/2 star for being the closet film to perfection.

Eli: They will kill to have it but i will kill to protect it.

I just got back from the midnight screening of Ninja Assassin. All have to say is freakin awesome!!!! This movie was off the chain with ninja action. From the start it puts you right into the action mayhem. It opens up with a bang full of gory violence & you know exactly what you in for throughout the rest of the film. Ninja Assasin offers alot of fight sequences & especially bloody violence which was way over the top. Sometimes it went too far as it was like watching a horror slasher flick. This had a number of stylized action sequences that were so amazing with it's slick special effects. Some of them were hard to see where they were fighting in the dark & close up. I think I was sitting too far up to the screen, thats probably why i'm complaning about that. This movie has it all you can really ask for in an action film like sword fights, guns, & tons of blood & gore in every direction.

Flixster - Share Movies

When some the action is taking place, the ninja's weapons like the swinging dagger & stars they use comes off the screen making it seem like in 3-D. I really think it should've been in 3-D because it would be sick & the director would've got away with it with the way he puts close up shots in your face. I think my favorite part where the technolgy was used was the ending fight sequence featuring Rain taking out 5 ninjas spinning his dagger around cutting them to shreads & pauses for one sec going slow motion with the dagger looking like its coming right at you.

Their were only two things that kept this movie from being perfect. First, theirs the plot. It was so weak. It couldn't decide what it wanted to stay on. It was just all over the place. Their was no need for the eurocop's investigating. It just slowed down the action in parts making it look like a boring drama. I also don't know why they had to put a romantic session in this. I just didn't understand why they would use that when it was just about living in the ninja world. I'm glad it wasn't too much because it would've took the feel away from the title. I also didn't like how the director made the ninjas supernatural. They move fast in shadows in the speed of light. I just thought that was kinda of corny. Even though it wasn't what I was expecting from the ninjas, I thought it was still an experince. the last thing that disturbed me was the over the top CGI in the blood. i just thnk they could've notched the CGI down a bit that would atleast make it feel somewhat realistic but unfortunately the diector wanted to make this film more comic book violence.

I was pretty surprised by the acting especially by the awesome Raizo played by Rain who basically stole the film with his badass skills. if they decide to make another Mortal Kombat sequel, hope they pick Rain to take on the character Lui Kang because i think that he would seem perfect for the role with him being expert with weapons & martial arts that are beyond amazing. hope to see pop star rain in more martial art films if not Mortal Kombat.

Naomie Harris is another one that was good. Namoie is very attractive & a good actress as well. Naomie can be serious & funny at times during the film that makes it fun to watch, She's pretty cool in action using her glock kicking butt. This is probably the best role i've seen her take on in her whole career basically because she's using english accent. Hope Naomie starts using english more often as its believable enough for her to pass on it.

Overall, if you can't handle blood don't see it because thats all this one has throughout. If you can handle for all it has to offer, then you'll have one hell of a great time. Honestly, I think this is more of a guy film then girls, its that simple. I enjoyed the heck out of it & can't wait to see it again & own when it comes to DVD. Ninja Assassin is great stylized bloody action entertertaining thrill ride thats sure to make fans satisfyed by all means..

Pandorum

Flixster - Share Movies

Director Christian Alvart & Producer (Paul WS. Anderson) who brought you Resident Evil & Alien vs. Predator takes you for a spectacular ride in space in this psychological suspenseful horror/scifi/thriller called Pandorum. Pandorum is about two space cadets named Bower (Ben Foster) & Payton (Dennis Quaid) who wake up on their abandoned ship with memory loss. While Bower & Payton are trying to figure out what happened to them, they start looking for crew members to find answers. As the search goes on, Bower finds two upright survivors who tell him that their not the only ones on board. The survivors tell Bower that they are being hunted by mysterious creatures who have taken over their ship. As Bower & survivors fight to stay alive, they begin to notice that everything isn't what it seems as they embark a thing called Pandorum where they suffer at the hands of paranoia. Bower & the others must go beyond to figure out the mystery behind Pandorum before everything they know is lost.

Pandorum was a pretty cool scifi/horor film. It's defnitly something new that we haven't seen before in the genre which is the reason why i liked it so much. Pandorum opens up with a dark atmospheric setting that gets right to the point of the mystery. I've never seen a scifi movie that is fast-paced with its storyline. When watching Pandorum it reminded me of another scifi/horror film, Event Horizon. Pandorum is ten times better than that one as it has more jumps, scares & twist & turns every minute. Pandorum doesn't take its self too seriously which i'm glad because its suppose to be fun & entertaining nothing more. I was impressed it didn't take too long for the creatures to show up. That came unexpected & errie when they did. The creatures reminided me from the Descent of how viciously dark they were by killing everything in sight. I thought the creatures were cool looking as they acted like warriors with spears. Theres quite amount of blood. Nothing too gory just like your standard scifi pictures. A movie doesn't have to be violent for you to enjoy it but i can understand that the violence is whatever one comes to see by movies like this. Here its not the case as this movie was more action/adventure than horror. You get nonstop chases sequences that keep you on the edge & fight scenes that are thrilling to watch. The acting was decent enough for you to get into them. Ben Foster who played Bower was believible & the strongest out of the cast. Probably one of his best roles I've seen him in. Dennis Quaid was good. Never have been a fan of Dennis's but he was good for me here. There were moments where he went a little too far with his acting but he succeeded in the end. Cam Gigandet was probably the weakest. Cam seemed he was trying to be way too serious with the film. There were parts where he was ok & some where he just lost it by going over the top. I tell ya Cam, you need to stop trying to use so much emotion with your character if you dont', your going to end up killing his spirit. He came sort of clean in the end but by seeing him in other fims, I expected so much more from him. Sadly, Cam was just so disappointing to me. Need to try harder if you want to stay in show bussiness Cam. Overall, Pandorum is deffenitly one that you should see. Despite its flaws, Pandorum offers enough entertainment by giving you a fun exciting scfi adventure filled with plenty of action & horror elements to keep you satisfied throughout.

Constantine
Constantine(2005)

Constantine is based on Dark Horse's Comic Book about a man named Constantine (Keanu Reeves), a chosen warrior by God who has been fighting in a war between Heaven & Hell ever since he was born. Constantine doesn't mind serving God but there is just one thing that he doesn't understand & that is while he is doing everything God wants him to do, in the end he'll go straight to Hell. While Constantine is living with that, he does drugs & bad things to make God feel guilty. As Constatine keeps doing those things, he ends that much closer to Hell as demons try to come & take him there. Meanwhile, a woman detective named Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz) is trying to solve a murder mystery of her twin sister, Isabel. Later on, Angela starts seeing strange visions involving her sister where she ends up going to a church to get some answers. Angela finds Constantine & she asks for his help. Constantine goes to hell to see if Isabel killed herself by commiting suicide & finds out that she did. With Angela trying to understand exactly what Constantine is capable of, she soon realizes that she's in terrible danger in a world that she didn't think that exists. When Angela witnesses a war is waging against the light & darkness, she joins Constantine on his quest to keep Hell away from earth. This all comes down to a choice where Constantine needs to decide to still fight for heaven or let Hell come on earth & set fire on everything known to man.

Constantine was a really good supernatural/horror flick. It was really intense & creepy enough to keep you on the edge with its dark tone. From the start, you get entertained by Keanu Reeves as he brings a liking to his badass character. Constantine is very disturbing at times as you witness Keanu bring a demon out of a body or seeing what hell looks like. Everything in this film is basically freaky it it's own kind of way. The film has a good pacing for its run-time. Just when you think you've seen it all you haven't. In almost every scene something takes you by surprise in a sense you don't see coming. There were a few scenes that shivered down my spine for of fear like when Keanu & Rachel were in the dark in the city & all the sudden demons came over them when the light hit. Probably the one seen that freaked me out through the entire film. The movie has its fair share of action & when it comes into play, its absolutely breathtaking. I was just really suprised how much I enjoyed Constantine. It's a horrifying film that comes rare full shocks. I thought Keanu was a good choice for the role of the hero. Keanu was very believable & I loved his performance trying to protect everything in sight. One thing I noticed by watching this film was that Shia LaBeouf was in here. It was good to see him star in something different for a change. I actually think this one showed that he can play any character. Shia was beiievable & enjoyed watching him in this as well. Rachel Wiez is good too as she brought her character to life playing a sexy police detective. Peter Stomare gives a chilling performace as Satan. You don't see him till the end but when you do its a scaretatic. The movie seems to offer a sequel but don't know for sure if really needs one because I thought it was good enough not to have one. Overall, Constianine is worth checking out if your into this kind of stuff. If you can handle possessions, demons, & disturbing images then you won't have no oroblem with this one. Constantine has all the goods for a good horror film. I give Constantine 4 stars for satisfying me with its horrifying movie-making, heartpounding scaryness at best, good acting & for given me just one heck of a fun fantasy ride.

Edge of Darkness

Company Logo Design at logomyway

Mel Gibson is out for vengence in this gritty drama/suspense/thriller, Edge of Darkness. Mel Gibson is Thomas Craven, a Boston Police Detective whose daughter is instantly murdered in cold blood before his eyes. Thomas sets out for revenge believing that he was a target from ones that he tried to put away. Later on, Thomas finds clues that leads to his daughter knowing that she was the one they were after instead of him. From there, the only thing relying in Thomas's heart is full of vengence & he won't stop till he gets answers & taking down the ones that were responsible for his daughers death.

Sadly, Edge of Darkness was a disappointment to me. As much as I wanted to love it, it never happened. The movie started out well enough for you to get drawn into the story but after the murder takes place, it just becomes really boring sometimes with hardly anything interesting about it. The thing that came unexpected from this film was the slow pace. It was just way too slow in parts but it builded up suspense was one good ting I liked but it could've been a whole lot better if they cut some scenes. The only thing that really stood out in this entire film was Mel Gibson's performance. After 8 years, he proves that he still has what it takes to be a great actor. To, me he's close to a legend. What really surprised me about Mel is that he's still the tough guy we remember. Old or not, Mel has the ability that he can do anything if he sets his mind on it. I also liked Mel taking vengence by beating the heck out of some of the people he was investigating. There was a scene where he punched some guy in the face where you can really feel the impact of realism. I was also impressed with the Director of how he brings action to life. There are a couple shootouts where you can feel the bullets coming out of the guns that bring a sense of energetic to them. This film is quite violent in parts. One was a brutal sequence of a shotgun nailing Mel's daughter. That was probably one of the most intense brutal sequences I've ever seen put on film. For the rest of the cast, I really didn't get into their characters. As much as I wanted to like Ray Winstone's character, I couldn't because their was nothing unique or interesting about him. I think the movie could've done better without him to tell you the truth. Really no need for his character at all. I didn't think Danny Huston played a very good bad guy. He didn't show his evil side or nothing, so how can he be a bad guy? Just one thing I didn't get. Danny was just a poor excuse to be casted in a movie like this. Yup, Mel is the only one who kept this from being poor. Overall, Edge of Darkness may not be what everone expects by the trailer. It's nothing like the trailer. The trailer makes it seem more action-packed than it really is. If you like conspiracy/thrillers or drama's then this is defenitly for you, that is if you can sit through it. Edge of Darkness has its moments of raw tension but falls short on the lack of pace.

Shoot 'Em Up
Shoot 'Em Up(2007)
½



Shoot 'Em Up is a violent crazy over the top action/thriller about man who goes by Mr. Smith (Clive Owen) who gets involved saving a pregnant woman who has an elite team of gunfighters headed by a psychotic leader (Paul Giamatii) after her baby. Mr. Smith comes to the rescue to neutralize the situation by taking of the gunfighters to protect the woman & her child. Moments later, Mr. Smith realizes that the mother didn't make it but with the baby still alive. Mr. Smith decides to take full responsiblity of the baby. From there, Mr. Smith & the baby run into danger everyhere they turn. Mr. Smith must use his unique shooting skills to protect the baby in the only way he knows how & nothing will stand in his way.

Shoot 'Em Up was one heck of fun exciting thrill ride. From the action-packed opening you get thrown with explosive gunfights & fast-paced chases that give you guilty pleasure. Shoot "Em Up has awesome writen all over it. Clive Owen is the ultimate action hero who kills alot of bad dudes with fully automatic machine guns who are trying to kill a baby. Seriously what more could you ask for? I tell ya the director defenitly picked the right title for this one. All the movie is what the title suggests. Shoot 'Em Up is the only action film that i've seen that gives you enough of what it has to offer. I was really suprised how entertaining this film came to be. It kept me on the edge in every scene. Not a dull moment as your smacked with action all the way through. Shoot 'Em Up is totally unrealistic as you witness Clive doing some really crazy things as he kills. For instance, jumping through the air shooting with a baby in his arms, getting chased while driving a car shooting at bad guys while the baby n harms way & jumping out of an airplane shooting also. The film is very insain at best but thats what makes it so fun because it can be. While Shoot 'E'm Up was in theaters, it was probably one of the best experience's in my life. I know it sounds like a line but I really mean it. It was like being on a rollercoaster as it hits you right in the face full of punches that you can't get enough of. Overall, if you don't care for unrealistic crazy aspects of shoorouts then this is defenitly the one film you need to check out. You will get your money's worth seeing it & owning it. Shoot 'Em up is a insainly trigger happy assault masterpiece of pure nonstop bloody action that keeps your adrenaline up full of a great time that you wont soon long forget.

Nedveline/Taylor does it again as the give you another over the top insane mind blowing action movie that you have to experience on the big screen. This time they give you an even bigger budget action film full of adrenaline that keeps your heart racing every step of the way. Gamer takes you on a fun 90 minute entertaining ride of your life as you watch the undefeated bad ass Kable running & fighting for his life in spectacular battles kicking major butt thats sure to leave you breathless. Gamer starts off with the song "Sweet Dreams" by Marylin Manson in the opening credits then puts you right in the action in a long battle sequence that will blow you right out of your seat. Gamer had my heart pumping from the very beginning where I couldn't take my eyes off watching. Warning: This film is very pervasive with its rating as it makes its way to the brutal stage of violence & crude sexuality. It's definitely not for kids by all means. In all the great action scenes you get to see graphic violence of blood splatter & blown body parts. When the action is not taking place it will turn to the society part of the film that has some really disgusting things that appear by some of the avatar characters. It 's full of sexual situations & lots of nudity that I think was too much coming from the directors. Even though, I know how these directors like to shoot by mixing elements into their film, I just thought it was too gross where it almost made me vomit. When the action starts back up again which only take 10 minutes to get a breather, it's another long & intense great action sequence that gets even more violent as it keeps going on. In some scenes when witnessing the violent moments before they become dead corpses, you get to see their limbs get shot right at your face just like you would see in 3D. I kept thinking as all that was happening right in my face that this movie should have been in 3D which would have made it even more spectacular. Throughout you just keep begging for more thrilling action & thats exactly what you get. The score with the battle scenes fit with them I think. They were loud with a dark vibe to it. I though Gamer had a somewhat interesting script that was kinda dark as it explained how the mind controlling of humans was. I thought it was neat & awesome concept that has never been told before on screen. The way the directors took this film & turned it into a real life gaming environment. One things I witnessed & loved from this film was when it showed Simon controlling Kable in third person mode just like you would see in a video game. I thought that was sweet putting that in there because it fitted right in with the concept of the game.

Gamer is completely different from all these other films like Death Race, The Condemned & the Running Man. Even though Gamer has a different concept, it mixes all those movies into one. It seems to me before they made Gamer, they couldn't come up with a intelligent plot to make a great action film. Well folks, I think the directors actually did it by coming up with a plot like this. I really liked how real everything looked in this film. the gunfights, blood, & explosions. The story isn't the main issue here even though I thought it was interesting & good. Everyone knows the real deal that gets you hyped up from a film like this is the crazy things that the directors have in store for you. If everyone is familiar with the Crank directors will have no problem with the camera work. Of course its shaky & all that but it makes you think that your in the movie. So everyone shouldn't have a problem watching this thinking the same way. The background was perfect for the setting. It made me think if this is what its going to look & be like in the future. The one thing that got me shocked from the start was how believable the acting was. I can tell ya, that I wasn't too sure about the casting for this one. I thought everyone was going to do terrible. Man, did they prove me wrong. Everyone did an fantastic job with their character.

The best supporting actor who stole the film I think was Gerard Butler. Gerard's acting has reached a high new level proving that he is one of the most talented actors out there. Gerard also has come to be one of the awesomeness action stars like Jason Statham. I loved watching him kick butt especially in this one. To me, it looked like he did all his stunts by his self. From all his other action films, this has to be his best one I've seen since 300. Hope he stars in a whole lot more action films & leave the comedy ones behind. Action is what Gerard should stay with. Move over Schwarzenegger & Stallone, Gerard has come to take your place with his style of ass whooping.

Overall, Gamer is a big budget popcorn action/scifi/thriller filled with exciting moments that make you go woah. It's a definent must see for action junkies. If you just turn off your brain & enjoy it for what it is you'll have a great time at the movies. if you want something thats straightforward story or character develpoment this isn't for you. I've seen this three times in a row so that has to tell yall something. I'm defenitly grabbing me a copy when it hits the shelves on dvd. Gamer is a fun enjoyable adrenaine rushed extravaganza with mindblowing action from start to finish.

Legion was better than expected. From the trailers making it seem mediocre low budget, it was far from it. I found Legion to be hardcore intense supernatural action-packed ride. Legion seemed like a mix between Terminator meets the.Prophecy. You will probably agree with me on that as you witness Paul Bettany's character Michael fall from the heavens on a mission to protect a woman who is given birth to her unborn child who is supposely to be a leader for the future of the human race to go on. So Legion turns out to be Terminator with a biblical plague. Legion has dark tone that was just right for the film. The score was scary at times. There were just a couple of things that I wasn't satisfired with. First, is the plot area. Having viewed from the trailer, I noticed that the story was unexplained. When watching the film, I thought everything would come together. Unfortunately, it fails to do so. Everything in here was just so confusing & just plain dumb. Alot of unanswered questions that I was waiting for to be answered but they never were. Even though, the story was stupid, I still liked it. Legion is what we go to the movies for & that is to be entertained with excitement. The last problem I had with Legion was the rating. It's rated R for strong bloody violence & language. Okay, I get the language part because it had enough F-bombs for an R but bloody violence come on. I mean their were scenes with rarely any blood. The film was big on action than violence if you ask me that could've easily got away with a PG-13 if it hadn't been for the language. All, you can really go for in this is action sequences, effects, & acting which were all great.

The action in Legion notches high. Even though the action wasn't nonstop, it still fired with intensity involving gunfights, explosions, & a kick ass fight scene that you don't wont to miss. I had to favorite action scenes. One was in like 30 minutes in the movie where Michael & survivors were up on the roof of the diner shooting heavily protecting theirselves from the possessed. That sequence was a good 5-10 minutes long which was explosive & exciting.

Next, was the fight between Michael & Gabriel. That had to be the highlight of the film if you ask me. You witnessing them beating the heck out of each other using weaponry & massive fighting skills. That scene alone was epic for me unlike anything I have ever seen. I mean how often do we get to see angels battling it out? highly unlikely.

The CGI effects were the best I've seen in action film yet. Using effect on the angel wings were done nicely that made it seem very close to realistic. There were also some cool effects as the humans were being possesed that looked matirx style as an agent shifting to a human. I thought that was pretty narly. The cretaure effects were creepy enough to get the audience jumping out of their seats. The Ice cream dude that ws played by Doug Jones was really freaky as he flexed his body shifting hisself into some sort of spider looking thing. Psychotic Grandma was freaky climbing up on the celing. She had to give me cringes more than than the Ice Cream man. Maybe it was because I saw her side has a monster & got to see more of her. Anyway the effects made the film I thought that gave it a kick for the audience to cheer while being excited & scared out of their wits.

I do have to admit I was really suprised by the twist at the end that was very unpredicatable that I didn't see coming. The twist changes the whole aspect of the story, I felt that it made the film seem better. Even though the story was dumb & didn't make any sense, somehow I was really drawn into it by being entertained all the way through. There were some parts in towards the middle that dragged which you get to hear about the characters talking about their problems that I found interesting. I was really inpressed how much fun I had watching Legion. I never thought I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. From the start it gets right to the point & you just have a blast with it. Legion is one of those films that you don't care for story just go for what it has to offer. Now, for the biggest surpirse in Legion was the wonderful acting. Everyone was believable with their parts that had me drawn into them with their funny lines that were given & seriousness.

The one actor who stole the show for me was Mr. Paul bettany. As soon as he was on screen, you really get into his character with how serious he takes this film to make his own. I think this is Paul's first starring role as an action hero & he did great. Paul accomplishes everything an action hero would do & that is giving you a good show watching him kick ass & he kicks a ton in this. Hope that Paul takes on more roles like this in the future because I think they suit him very well. Paul keep it up & you will be at the top of action stars.

Dennis Quaid is the second best. From witnessing Dennis in G.i. Joe which was painfully bad acting on his part, I thought he was going to fail here as well. Unfortunately he took me by surprise by entertaining me with his awesome character. Dennis gets kinda drunk & out of of control which is funny & great because he had me rooting for him of how believable he was. Dennis takes action in some scenes using a pump shotgun to protect everyone with. Dennis has been out of action for while so it was nice to see him back in it. This is the Dennis Quaid I have missed & I'm glad he's back to his ole self & hope he stays that way so he can live on & one of the best actors out there.

Rising singer actor star Tyrese Gibson was really good as always. For me, this is his best performance I've seen by him. From the first time he makes apparence, he had me into his character by giving a powerful performance. I just love to see Tyrese in these action films where he takes charge. I'm so glad he's sticking with the genre because he was made for it & does very well everytime he participates in them. Tyrese also had a couple of scenes where he lets his badass character out with a vengence. Tyrese is defenitly made for the action type & acting given. By witnessing Tyrese in this, he has proved to me that he has what it takes to go all the way by reaching standards of great acting, Thats why he's on my top because he always brings everything to the table that really impresses me everytime I see him on screen.

The sexy & beautiful Adrianne Palicki was good also. I'm not really familiar with Adrianne but I found her to be quite a lead actress in here. She was believable as a pregnant woman but I had a small problem with her smoking. It seemed to me that she didn't care for her unborn child. I would love to see her star in more films & hope to see her step up her acting skills even higher next time.

Young Lucas Black had to be the one that really took me by surprise that gave a standout performance. From witnessing his acting Tokyo Drift, I thought he was alright because it seemed he didn't have much to work with. In Legion, he shines showing everyone that he is made for acting. Lucas was believable as son to Dennis Quaid & using emotional moments towards his character. I found that to be so belivable which I thought was going to be hard to come by for him but he ceased to impress me by it. I enjoyed Lucas in this giving everytime he had. I feel Lucas has a big future awiating of him in the future.

Charles S. Dutton had a small part but he was good. Glad to see Charles back in films. He's been out of them for so long. I think the last film he was in was 97's Mimic. Man, thats been way too long. Witnessing him on the trailer, I didn't think he was going to do good where he's been away from the acting business. Well, Charles doesn't disappoint. He really shocked me with his performace as a owner of the diner. Charles also is quite funny that had me laughing & excited a few times. I loved the part where Charles through a pan towards the Granny's head & broke her neck. I thought that was awesome. Never thought I would see something like that from him. Gave me qutie a shock of how cool Charles character came to be. Glad to have you back Charles. Don't go anywhere because you are exactly where you need to be.

The weakest of the lot was Kevin Durand. I say this because he doesn't come in till the last 30 mins of the movie. I've seen Kevin Durand in some films & found him quite good but in here he's just so cheesy using a british accent trying to match up with Pauls'. Sorry to say Kevin your not even close to Pauls' level. I did like seeing Kevin kick butt using his deadly angel wings & mace. I thought that was pretty cool but when he talks, its like ahhh want you to shut up. Kevin was better off just not saying a word. If you would've not talked I might've liked him better but he didn't so he sucked. One piece of advice Kevin, don't try to take on other languages in films, it doesn't work for ya. If you just stick to english you be better off.

Overall, Legion is worth checking out. To me, I think everyone should see it mostly for the fun share of joy it brings. I think you'll have a good time watching it just as I did. I know straight up that you'll be engaged by the intense action sequences that are very thrilling to watch. If your a fan of religion, fantasy, action/horor you should be satisfred for the most part. If you can just turn your brain off for a 100 minutes you should be good. Legion is mindless action packed fun from begining to end with a horrible story but everything makes up for it. I have to give Legion 3 1/2 stars for keeping me satisfired by being a really good cool supernatural action/horror popcorn blockbuster entertainer.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

Flixster - Share Movies

The Hangover is about four friends (Bradley Cooper), Zach Galifanakis), (Ed Helms), & (Justin Bartha) who plan to throw one of their buddies a bachelor party in Vegas. Everything goes smoothly the first night where they think their week is going to be blast. The next morning, they realize that something very strange is going on & they can't remember a thing that went on the other night. They also realize that one of their buddies is missing. Now, there is just the 3 of them that must go out in Vegas, find their friend, gather the glues & solve the mystery of why their memories are lost.

As of right now, The Hangover is my favorite comedy ever. I laughed throughout the entire film with an interesting storyline that was really unique & brilliant. The story draws you in from the very begining as you are introduced to the characters & solving the puzzle. Be warned, this film contains adult sexual situations & pervasive language that goes a little too far with the F-Word. Defenitly not permitted for children or teenagers. The Hangover is more of an Adult film thats mostly for guys & maybe girls will like it too but I think its mostly a guy film more than anything. This movie wouldn't of succeeded if it hadn't been for the cast. They make a great comedy duo by making the humor reach sky high.

Bradley Cooper had to be my favorite. He's such a great actor & love everything he's in. At first, I didn't think he had talent to be funny but while watching, I know now that he can do anything with his gift of acting. As of right now, Bradley is on the way to my top.

Ed Helms is next one I liked. I'm not familiar with him at all but I can tell ya this that he can put on a good show. By witnessing Ed in this, I noticed that he really knows how to keep the audience's attention. Ed doesn't shy away from the camera. He enjoys being seen to give the audience everything they asked for watching a film like this. Thats what I love about Mr. Helms & I hope to see more fo him in comedies.

Zach Galifanakis was a little strange for me but funny nonetheless. There were scenes where Zach gets out of control by acting immature doing really perverted things but he still had me cracking up.

Overall, The Hangover is worthy to you comedy collection. You'll be laughing till you can't breathe. If you can handle cursing & sexual material then The Hangover is defeinitly for you because thats basically all it is. I give The Hangover 5 stars for being the funniest comedy ever made & for making me have such a great enjoyable time watching it.

Daybreakers
Daybreakers(2010)

Flixster - Share Movies

Daybreakers is a new fresh take on the vampire genre. It's 2019 & almost everyone is a vampire. The vampires have been stuggling to survive for their shortage dose of blood. A company that farms humans for blood run by a wealthy & powerful vampire leader named Charles Bromley (Sam Neill) sends his military vampire unit into the night to capture humans & drain their blood so that the vampire population will remain left alive. If the vampire's don't get enough blood in time, they will transform into bloodsucking monsters called Subsiders. Meanwhile, a young vampire hemotoligist named Edward Dalton (Ethan Hawke) has been trying to find a cure to end being a vampire. Later on, Edward comes across a two vampire hunters named Elvis (Willem Dafoe) who once was a vampire but found a way to change hisself back into human & his trusted sidekick named Audrey (Claudia Karvan). Together, Edward, Elvis, & Audrey race against time to fetch out the cure to save the human race in a battle between immortality & humanity.

Daybreakers brings back the horror in vampires that we've missed. Move over Twilight, theirs a new & better breed of vampire film come to knock you off the chart. I've been so tired of seeing vampire's sparkle when sunlight hits them, no offense Twilight fans. Vampires are mean't to disintigrate by ash which makes it more realistic where they fear the light. Thats just the way vampires are made & that should never be changed. Now on to the film, I thought Daybreakers was really good. I didn't really expect much from this coming out in a January release because most movies that come in that month are not that good but for Daybreakers it succeeded my expectations. Even though I wanted to see it, Daybreakers really suprised me by how good it turned out being low budget & all. The premise was well written with alot of potential to make this a classic vampire film. Unfortunately, Daybreakers fails on those terms where the second half of the script was changed. Instead of going all the way with scientific meaning they finished it off with action/horror elements which I thought kinda messed the movie up for me because i was dying to see how things turned out for the vampires. If they just stuck with one genre instead of mixing everything else into one, it would've turned out great. Daybreakers is still a fun & entertaining energetic ride that has enough to enjoy. The films run-time was just right I think. It was kinda slow in parts but didn't bother me because I found those parts quite interesting. The first 30 seconds into the movie draws you in where you will witness one of fastest scares ever seen on screen. I admit, I jumped up when that happened & still think I would when I see it again & again. There's no way you could see it coming as the sound screams putting you in full of fear. Throughout, the sounds raise high note that keeps your heart pumping. I loved the way this film looked. It had a dark atmospheric blue/white mood to it that made it more frightening & exciting to watch. I think the picture is what made me enjoy it more. Horror fans will be very pleased that their is enough blood/gore here involving decapitations, burnt flesh, exploding bodies, & just enough bloody violence to keep you satisfied. There's alot of people saying that they thought that Daybreakers needed more blood but I don't think so. I think it had enough where it almost went on a overkill with the gore at the end. Thats where most of the gore takes place which almost made me sick but still enjoyed it. Oh & be warned that their is one cool death scene that isn't easy to watch but its one of the most goriest kill scenes I've ever seen in a horror film. When the cure came in, I didn't really have a problem with it because It was something new & also thought it could be possible to work. I didn't really have any doubts about how the acting was going to be in this movie. I will say i was impressed of how much of these actors have come along in their careers. Ethan Hawke pretty much stole show for me. I think he's the only actor that could play a vampire for his part. Ethan looked like he had fun with his character while taking it a bit serious at times. This is a mjor comeback for Ethan & its good to have him back. Hope to see him play in more like this one. Second actor that I thought was good was the lengendary Sam Neill. Man, Sam is terrific & ceases to impress me in anything he takes on. I wish he was on screen more in his film because his presence was very powerful like it always is. Sam don't go away, you stay in movie business & you'll be on top of the list, welcome back. Final actor that I liked was Willem Dafoe. When Willem approcahed the screen I didn't expect much from him since I didn't know how he was in these kinda roles. Let me tell ya, Willem entertained the crap out of me with his funny lines & the way he curses. He used the F-word I don't know how many times. As much as he cursed, Willem still shines with his character especially when he takes action with his crossbow making him look badass vampire slayer. For the rest of the cast I can't say much because I really don't know them very well but I thought they were decent. Michael Dorman who played Frankie, Ethan's brother, I can honestly say I can see a future for him in acting. I thought he was pretty darn good. I think the least out of the bunch was Isabel Lucas. She's smokin hot & beautiful teenager actress & I know she's played in some films but here she just wasn't good for me. Even though she didn't have much screen time her presence was just terrible with nothing fresh about her. I thought her acting was way off like when she was trying to witness to her crew that she was surrounded & was being hunted, it didn't feel like she was frightened, It seemed like she was getting ready for that line waiting to happen. I think she can do better in more films because she's just now starting but if she continues to mess up like she did in this one, she needs to find another profession. Overall, Daybreakers is worth the time & money to go & experience. It's especially for vampire lovers & gorehounds. If you like action, sadly you'll be disappointed. Daybreakers is not nonstop action which I know everyone expects it to be. However their is one big action sequence involving a car chase shootout that was well shot. Oh & another thing, if your going to have a climax where it builds up to be a big action set piece, please finish the rest of it. I was getting pumped & ready to see an explosive showdown but instead it stops with barely anything exciting happening. I thought the ending was really lame at that. Other than the terrible ending, you still are in a treat throughout the film with plenty to go around. Daybreakers also offers a sequel coming from the ending. I really don't see it happening in which this looks like its just going to keep going on with no changes. Daybreakers is a popcorn film thats sure to entertain no matter how you think it might turn out. I hope to own it to my horror collection when it hits shelves. So go out & have yourselves a bloody good time. Daybreakers is an exciting smart vampire scifi/horror film filled with good character development, gushes of bloody violent sequences mixed in with some good well executed action that was close to being perfect but failed by not having more going for it. I still give Daybreakers 4 stars for the comeback of vampires & being a fun entertaining horror movie, nothing more & nothing less.

Final Destination
½

Terror soars in the sky as teens get killed off left in right in this horrifying thrill ride, Final Destination. Final Destination starts off when a teen named Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) who boards a plane having a premonition of the plane blowing up. After Alex has the premonition, he wakes up scared to death going around & finding things everything that was in his premoniton that involved the accident. When Alex witnesses all that, he tries to warn all the passengers about what he saw & going to happen. From there, Alex & few other teens & teacher get taken off from an inciddent involving a fight between Alex & a jerk named Carter (Kerr Smith) who thinks Alex is pulling their chain. When they get off the plane & the rest of the passengers are still on & take off, the plane explodes just like Alex predicted. After the survivors witness the plane exploding, they all turn & look at Alex & think that somehow he was responsible. Later on, they soon realize that Alex had nothing to do with it where they end up getting killed one by one by gruesome deaths where only Alex can stop death from happening to them.

Final Destination is an enjoyable suspensful horror flick that has enough thrills & chills to leave you satisfied. From the begining, the plot pulls you in as it keeps you in fear throughout. The characters are likeable as they take you for a ride trying to survive death. Devon Sawa is good with his part seeing the premonition then getting scared trying to save lives. Ali Larter is hot & smart working with Devon trying to break the chain on deaths plan. I didn't really like Kerr Smith all that good in here. He was mostly a jerk as Devon was trying to protect him. I think this is Seaan William Scott's first film who starts his future in movie business. I thought he was really good at being funny with his character just like he always is. He's never a dissapointment to me. Everyone else was good on screen as well but those 4 are the ones that stoodout the most. The violence here isn't nonstop gore. There are moments where it gets little disgusting like where this one kid gets have of his face taken off by a sharp metal plate. Man, everytime i see that, it makes me squemish. There are enough deaths to set up for a sequel where you would expect more from this one. Overall, if your a fan of horror, thrills, some blood/gore, I'd say defenitly check it out. I wouldn't say its the best in the series but its not the worst either. Final Destination is a fun brainless type thriller that will get you to thinking while keeping you entertained till the shocking conclusion.

Thriteen Ghosts is a horror/thriller about a familly involving a father named Arthur Kriticos (Tony Shaloub) & his adorable kids, Kathy (Shannon Elizabeth) & Bobby (Alec Roberts) who have been having trouble getting on with their lives ever since a teribble accident occured leading to the mother dead. As their trying to get over that, their also having trouble surviving in their small home thats so crammed up where they wish they could afford a bigger place but since the mom is gone its hard for them to do that. One morning, a strange mysterious man named Ben Moss (JR Bourne) comes by Arthur's home & shows him & his family on a video something that pertains to their dead Uncle Cyrus's lifestyle. Arthur & his family witness that Uncle Cyrus has left them with his one of a kind house that will put Arthur's family back on track to having a good life. Arthur & his kids are so excited getting to their new home where they think things will start getting better for them. When they get to the house, they meet a guy named Denis Rafkin (Matthew Lillard) who use to work with their Uncle Cyrus. Their's just one little thing about that he tries to explain about what exactly he does for a living & that is hunting ghosts. From there, Arhur & his kids lifes change forever where they end being happy to scared for their lives as they try to stay alive from 13 haunting spirits who have a taste for blood.

Ok first off, I didn't think that 13 Ghosts was all that good. it was mediocre at best. It had a few good deaths here & there but it was a drag most of the way. I was thurly disappointed where this had potential to be a very good horror show but it ended painfully lame instead. The movie also throws quite a bit of stupid humor in their as well which I think ruined the film's style of being scary. I think they should've stuck with the jump out of your seat moments instead of the comedy. I also think this film's plot has to be one of worst i've ever heard of. I tell ya, their were some things I did like from this film that it had some pretty cool visuals & the acting was surprisngly not that bad. I expected a whole lot worse but I was shocked of how much enjoyed the performances. Their was just one out of the actors that annoyed the crap out of me & that was Matthew Lillard's character. I kept waiting for him to take a moment of silence because he was way over the top with his character that was just awful. Overall, I guess if you like spooky spirits & survival horror you might dig this film. If your wanting a true classic horror film with a good story, look elsewhere because its not here. All you'll find in this one is terrible direction, decent acting & blood/gore. So if thats all you go for, I say give it a shot. I just hope you don't end up wasting your money of what could've been a classic horror film.

Sudden Death
Sudden Death(1995)

Jean Claude Van Damme hits hard taking down the bad guys in this slam bang action/thriller, Sudden Death. Sudden Death takes place where a firefighter named Darren McCord (Jean Claude Van Damme) looses a civilian he was trying to rescue. Years later, Darren is retired but still helping out with the department with little things. The only thing that Darren wants now is to spend time with his two children who he barely see's since he's in a divorce. One day, Darren purchases tickets for his kids to a hockey game. When Darren & his kids get there, things go wrong when thugs headed by a madman (Powers Boothe) who kidnapps the Vice President & takes hostages into his hands to get a hefty ransom. The madman asks for that money at a certain time or the bombs that he planted within the stadium will explode wtih everyone inside. Darren is the only one standing between the hostages. Darren must locate where all the bombs are before they set off & spread death.

Sudden Death is one of Jean Claude's best in the 90's. It's not action-packed throughout but it sure packs a punch full of intensity violent aspects. It was good to see Jean Claude back in form with his martial arts which is always great to see. Sudden Death is very fast paced where it doesn't have time to slow down. It keeps you on the edge with something suspensful hapeening every second. I must say from Jean Claude's acting has increased. To me, its one of his best perfromances. I throughly enjoyed this action picture. As I was watching Jean Claude in this, I was thinking of Bruce Willis in Die Hard which was good because thats one of my favorite action films. So thats saying that I liked Sudden Death pretty much the same way. Overall, if ur a fan of Van Damme or action, you won't be disappointed as in you get alot of those two things. Sudden Death is slick piece of action entertainment that sure to put a smile on any fan of the genre's face.

Out of Time is a very good race against time thriller that keeps you on the edge throughout. It has a enough of suspense that keeps you guessing every step of the way. The film is really fast-paced with explosive excitement that keeps you entertained. Denzel is at his best trying to relieve hisself. Denzel is so believable in his role that you can actually feel his pain & what he's going through. Denzel proves once again why he's the greatest of all actors. Every character he plays he has fun & plays serious. I don't think he's had one film that he's not great in. it seems like with all the great movies he's been in, its impossible for him to mess up in any role. The rest of the cast have quite interesting characters. Eva Mendes is really good here as always. Eva's acting ability increases & takes me by surprise everytime i witness her on screen. She keeps getting better & better everytime I see her & to mention more beautiful. Another good one here is the sexy & stunning Sanna Lathan who also caught me by surprise of how well she was. Sanaa plays it cool by doing what she does best to make the audience dig her with her acting & beauty. Everyone was good but not as important as those 3. Overall, Out of Time is worth the time to kill with good popcorn entertainment. It will be marked down as one of Denzel's best. Out of Time is a heart pumping adrenaline explosive edge of your seat thriller filled with great acting, breathtaking suspense & nonstop chase sequences.

One stormy night, as Ernest is working on the tree, he wakes up the troll & puts everyone's life at stake. Now, its up to Ernest & the kids to find away how to stop the troll before he releases chaos on everything around them.

This is my second favorite out of the Ernest series. It has about the same amount of laughs as Saves Christmas & entertaining as always. I loved Ernest how he fights the troll. Jim Varney is a real hoot in which he does the most stupid things that you can imagine. Like how Jim Varney portrayed his characters as he was dealing with the situation. I liked the atmospheric gloomy mood in the background. It made the film feel dark & spooky. The cast was decent. I didn't except a real good cast but they were good enough for you to enjoy their characters. I'm sure everyone knows that the Ernest movies are all for Jim Varney. Jim is what makes them by giving you so many funny moments to crack you up. Overall, Scared Stupid is another good one for Ernest & for the family. If Jim Varney was still alive, I would congratulate him for making me laugh & pulling off a exceptional comedian for all viewers. Scared Stupid is a hillariously spooky good fun that will keep you watching for all that Ernest has going for ya.

Like Mike
Like Mike(2002)

Like Mike tells the story about an orphan named Calvin Cambridge (Bow Wow) who always wanted something to look forward to in life. One night, something unexpected happens to Calvin when he finds a pair of Michael Jordan sneakers. Things start becoming strange for Calvin when he puts on the sneakers & notices that he can play ball like the pros. From there, Calvin gets chosen to play for a NBA Team called the Knights that his favorite player Tracy Reynolds (Morris Chestnut) plays for. As Calvin is a pro ball player, he also has famalies that want to take him in as their own. Calvin has everything that he ever dreamed of. As all this is going on for Calvin, he starts begining to feel that he's missing out on his childhood. This all comes down to where Calvin must choose to stick to his dream or settle down with his friends & stay an orphan.

Like Mike is good family entertainment. When I first heard about this film, I wasn't too thrilled to see it because though it was gonna be a let down since it had rapper Bow Wow in it. The time I saw it, I was shocked of how good Bow Wow entertained me with his character. I thought he was just good at rapping but surprised me what acting he brough the the table. Bow Wow has star power which I think he'll make a good career in acting. I loved the fact that Bow Wow likes to play b-ball for a living in real life starred in something like this that seemed just right for him. He is also believible as an orphan who is desperately in need for a family. Bow Wow is also quite funny in his role that made me laugh sometimes. The movie is just flat out fun where the plot pulls u in & keeps you watching. I thought the chemistry was good between Bow Wow & Morris Chestnut with them trying to get along with each other. Morris Chestnut is also actually good in this where he keeps you entertained with his character as much as Bow Wow's. I loved how the movie worked out in the end. Even though it was somewhat predictable, I thought it was real touching. Overall, Like Mike is for the family to enjoy & tressure what it has to offer. If your a fan of sports & Bow Wow, this movie won't disappoint in which it has alot going for it.

Later on, Jack finds out that theirs a black cross that if Valac gets a hold of, he'll be invincible where sunlight want even stop him. Jack must reach the cross & protect it before Valac's reign of terror continues.

Vampires is one of the best vampire movie's ever made thanks to John Carpenter. John really gave vampires a more darker atmosphere where everything on screen is frightening. Vampires is filled with lots & lots of blood & gore. i can tell you that right now. In some scenes the gore factor goes over the top where heads are severed, bodies are torn to shreads, & blown up body parts all over the place. The story is very unique & entertaining as your with the hunters slaying vampires. The movie is ver fast paced that gets right to the point giving you so much to look forward to as a fan of the vampire genre. James Woods is awesome as Jack Crow as he shows emotion of what he's willing to do to set the world free from chaos. Daniel Baldwin is very cool here too as Jack's partner with him all the way to get the job done. Thomas Ian Griffith who plays the master vampire, Valac is scary & viciously creepy going around causing violence on behalf of Jack's crew & civilians. Thomas has to be one of the most fearsome in vampire history. Sheryl Lee is hot & very good actress here as she is totally believible freaking out turning into an undead. Overall, if you like bloodsuckers, action, horror, blood/gore, you wont be disappointed. Vampires has it all as everything gets bigger as the movie goes on. Vampires is an awesome dark exciting actionier with horrifying frightening moments thats full of bloody torsos where if you don't have a strong stomach don't bother.

Vampires Rocks!!!

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)
½



The marvel comic book action hero comes to life on the big screen about a wealthy intelligent inventor named Tony Stark (Robert Downy Jr.) who gets wounded by explosion that pierced his chest & captured by a terrorist group in Afganistan who want Tony to build something for them from his project. Tony has no choice but to do what they want if he wants to live. While, Tony s working on building, he decides to make something for him instead to break loose. Tony builds a suit made out of iron that he takes out the terrorists with. When Tony escapes, Tony's best friend James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Terence Howard) comes to his rescue. From there on, Tony realizes that he's not just not the powerful Tony Stark anymore but a icon to the people as the man made out of iron who calls hisself Iron Man.

When I saw the preview for Iron Man I was stoked to see it. When it hit theaters I was planning on seeing it but wasn't sure if the film was going to succeed for me. So I didn't see it at that point. When it hit on video, I watched it & was very surprised how much I enjoyed it. I felt so abd where I had the oppurtunity to watch it on the big screen & completely ignored it. Anyway I finally saw Iron Man & loved every waking minute of it. From the start the action explodes in your face. Throughout the movie keeps you watching as you get interested into all the things that Robert Downy Jr. accomplishes. Iron Man is really cool & fun experience that you need to experience. It makes you want to experience being Iron Man flying & fighting crime. Iron Man just takes off like a rocket & blows your mind away. Robert Downy Jr. gives his best performance to date. Robert is perfect for the character of Tony Stark/Iron Man. Robert makes Tony his own by being funny & spectacularly intelligent. Robert does very well with the stunts to which I believe he did all by hisself. If he didn't, I think that he would be able to because he is so believible in everything he does in here. I thought for an action movie the action sequences were good enough with mindblending effects that are so astonishing to witness. For the first one, this is great. Of course your not going to get alot of action. It jsut gets you warmed up to seeing the second one which I can't wait for. Iron Man 2 might be a tad better than this one because it will have a bigger budget on the action but don't think it will be as genius. The casting is great for the characters, They make you keep watching them as they keep you entertained with their ability to give you a good show. Overall, Iron Man is almost a masterpiece but a great action film that will live on as a classic in every fans hearts. Bring on Iron Man 2.

Disturbing Behavior is a scifi/horror/thriller about a teen named Steve (James Marsden) who is going through pain with the loss of his brother (Ethan Embry). Steve & his family move to a new town called Cradle Bay to leave everything else behind & try to get on with a better live. Steve ends up meeting a few teens at his new school where he becomes friends with named Rachel (Katie Holmes) & Gavin (Nick Stahl). It isn't long before the three of them find out something's wrong with their comminity when they witness strange school teens that act very unusual. These kids are smarter & more intelligent than nothing they've never seen before. Together, Steve, Rachel & Gavin must solve the mystery behind Cradle Bay & put a stop to the madness before their next.

Disturbing Behavior really gets the title right. This film is very disturbing in a way of how people react when their changed. I thought the film had a good concept. It's definently different that we haven't seen before & interesting to that point as well. The transformation of the teens is a scary feeling wanting perfection. The acting in this film is decent. No real stars except for James Marsden & Bruce Greenwood. Those two entertained the crap out of me with what they borught to the table. Jame's acting was set on emotion that he did really well with, You can feel his pain & what he's going through. Bruce as intelligent actor as he is almost steals the show with the science that he's wanting to acheive with the students. Nothing i can say about Katie Holmes only that she's hot in here & thats it. Nick Stahl makes a good apparence for a while. Nick also delivers some good emotion in some scenes. This movie isn't very violent. i saw about one to two kills thats about it. This film could've been easily PG-13 due to the violence. If it wasn't for all the bad language it would've got a way with that raiting. Overall, Disturbing Behavor is must watch for scifi fans. If this film doesn't disturb you, then their's something terribly wrong.

Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight

The Crypt Keeper brings his first frightening horror film to the big screen about a drfiter named Breaker (William Sadler) who is being chased by a demon called the Collector (Billy Zane) who is hunting down a cross that holds the blood of Christ. The Collector needs the cross but without the blood so he can use it to bring hell on earth. Its up to Breaker & a Hotel of civilians to survive by keeping the cross safe from The Collector & the demonic creatures that he has resurrected.

Demon Knight is like the only horror film that has ever gave me chills. There are so many jump out of your seat moments that really gave me an itch for each one. The film is really fast-paced with exciting things happening along the way. The movie is very dark that sets the mood just right. The story is very interesting that you grab a hold of & can't let go. Throughout, you get sadistic gruesome gory sequences that may not be recommended to all viewers. Theres bloody scenes that involve where bodies are ripped apart, severed heads, & exploding ribs & limbs from every direction. I was really surprised by the acting in this. There are most horror films where the acting is just horrifying to watch but in here you really get him to them as each & everyone of them are great with their character on screen. Billy Zane give the best performance out of the lot as the Collector who is just visciously wicked. Billy is mean't to hate in this one as he's a demon. Billy is a real treat to watch his darkside with very powerful lines that make you cringe. The fantastic William Sadler is also powerful here as he's the badass Breaker trying to keep everyone alive using his weapons to defeat the demons. I really love watching this guy act because he knows exactly what he's on screen for to entertain the audience. Jada Pinkett Smith who gives her first performance of her career shines brightly as a surprise with her role. Jada proved that she can actually act & have a good time in a film like this. Thats why she's like one of the best. Everyone else were good as those three but not as important as i think. Overall, Demon Knight is a muss see for horror fans. If you want everything good in a movie then this is the one for you. Get ready to get scared out of your wits as you witness the most darkest amospheric horror film ever to hit the big screen.

See No Evil
See No Evil(2006)

Flixster - Share Movies

WWE brings another film to life only except this time its not just action but brutal horror starring Glenn Jacobs aka Kane who plays a psychotic serial killer named Jacob Goodnight that somehow cannot die. Years later, a bunch of Juevinile's head to a Hotel to do clean-up duties where Jacob's hide out is. Things get bad for the group, when Jacob starts picking them off one by one throughout his playhouse of traps. No matter where they run, Jacob will find them where he'll cause damage on them where they won't see whats happening.

See No Evil is decent horror flick with plenty of it to go around. From a film like this you don't expect anything but gore/bloody violence which exactly what you get. There's scenes where eyes are gouged, bloody stabbings involving hook up through the head & neck, & brutal scenes of torture throughout that sometimes is very disturbing to watch. Everything else in here is pretty much lame & bad. Like the plot for instance is ridiciulous that has no point to it at all. It's just simple with nothing really exciting about it. The acting is one of those next thats just painfull to watch. As you watch the acting in this, you think to yourself where in the world did the director find these actors & why didn't he hire them to star in something like this. The only actor that's likeable in this one is Kane's character. You just root for him to hack up these kids & take them off the screen so the film will be so much better without them. I thought Kane was good with his part as the killer making it believe that he could actually be one which is scary. Overall, if your a horror freak or just a fan of gory violence then this is definently one for you. Just don't go for the terrible dialog or acting & you should have yourselves a good horror popcorn flick watching the scariest serial killer coming at you with everything he's got.

Mercury Rising

Bruce Willis stars in this action/thriller as an FBI Agent named Art Jefferies who is assigned to look after a 9-year old retarted boy named Simon (Miko Hughes) who supposely looked at a crossword & found an ecrypted number that leads to a terrorist organization where the head leader, Nick Kudrow (Alec Baldwin) wants dead. It's up to Agent Jefferies to keep Simon alive from Kudrow & go behind the mystery why the organization wants to terminate Simon.

Mercury Rising is a pretty good film for Willis. It's not his over the top action blockbuster like the Die Hard trilogy but its not that bad either. Mercury still provides the butt kicking from Willis just like all his other movies. To me, this is a suspense/thriller than action one. The action is good when it comes but its really set on a thrilling adventure with good acting. The movie gets right to the point with the story & keeps you on the edge with it throughout. Bruce Willis gives a good performance playing the cop protecting Miko Huges who was such a surprise as the retarted boy, Simon. There's no surprise about Alec Baldwin as he's one of the best underrated actors of all-time. So you know exactly what to expect from him. Alec wasn't the best villian I've seen mainly because he hasn't played much in a film before probably why I couldn't see it. Alec still did what he had to do to make the audience keep watching him. I was kinda disappointed that Willis & Baldwin didn't have much chemistry with each other. Overall, if your a fan of the cast/thrills/a bit of action, I highly recommend this as its a nonstop ride from start to finish. Mercury Rising is ok action film but big on thrilling suspense that will give you an adventure of a lifetme.

Pet Semetary Two is the horror/thriller sequel from the first about a teen named Jeff Matthews (Edward Furlong) who just lost his mother in a terrible accident on a set of a movie. Jeff & his father, Chase (Anthony Edwards) are trying to get on their lives as the move to a new town not knowing what to suspect around there. Later on, after Jeff settles in, he meets a couple of teens named Drew & a knuckle head named Clyde (Jared Rushton) who tells him about a Cemetary where you bury your dead & comes back to life. Things get awry, when Drew's hateful stepfather, Gus (Clancy Brown) shoots his hard-head dog Sowy. Jeff & Drew go to bury Sowy just to test to see if the burying & coming back to life deal really works. Soon, they both relaize that it does & from there, things get very bad as Sowy starts killing by making people that Jeff & Drew know zombies. Together, Jeff & Drew must find away to stop the madness & end the curse at Pet Semetary once & for all.

Pet Semetary is so much better than the first where its way more entertaiing & fast paced. From the start, you get drawed into the violence where it keeps you glued watching to see whats coming next. The movie does have quite amount of blood/gore thats satisfying throughout. I'm glad it didn't have too much of it because it would've made me sick. I thought it had the right dose wich was enough in my book. The score had a very scary tone that set the film in the right mood. The acting is right on target. Edward Furlong still proves that he's youngest greatest actor of the early 90's. Anthony Edwards gives a good role as Edward's father who shows alot of feelings for him. Clancy Brown is also good to watching him have fun with his over the top character. Clancy wants you to hate him because the way is in here. When he turns, he just goes up the wall with psycho which he did very well. Jared Rushton is also very talented as the bully who is also a unlikeable character. Everyone else didn't really care for but they were still decent to make this film worth watching. Overall, Pet Semetary Two is recommended if you like horror/zombie flicks. If you are a fan of the first, you'll enjoy this but so much more. Pet Semetary Two is a good sequel thats dark & scary that will give you chills up & down your spine till the exciting horror conclusion.

Hancock
Hancock(2008)



Will Smith is Hancock, a superhero thats just laid back getting drunk till the public needs him. When the public calls for help, Hancock comes to their rescue but not in way they want him too. Hancock doesn't understand why their not grateful for saving their lives. That same day, Hancock comes to rescue a guy whose in Public Relations named Rafe (Jason Bateman) who is very thankful that Hancock came when he did. From there, Rafe invites Hancock into his life by sharing everything that he has with him including his lovely wife Mary (Charlize Theron) & their son, Aaron (Jae Head). As Hancock is with Rafe & his family, Rafe decides that he wants to help Hancock by putting him back on top. The only way that Hancock can do that, is by going away & see if the people miss him. One day, things go real bad where the public need Hancock's help once again. Hancock comes but not like as he was before but with an actual superhero suit which makes him an icon to the world.

Hancock is a very good action/comedy/drama. Hancock is not an ordinary superhero movie where its just action but with a story that keeps you interested & having fun with. It has its up & downs on things but good nonetheless. It's set on superb class entertainment all the way. From the start your in on the action & as it goes on it keeps you on edge of your seat suspense. There are twists that you don't see coming that were very shocking when witnessing. This film is really hillarious with alot of suggestive crude that may not be suitable for younger viewers. Their is also some foul language that was little too much for a PG-13 like using the F-Word twice. Hancock is one of Will Smith's best & finest performances since I Am Legend. Even though this movie doesn't really relie on acting, I was very surprised how good it was. Charlize Theron was really good with her part playing a sexy stunning wife. Jason Bateman who I'm not really familiar with was good as well who was trying to help Will get make on his feet with things. Whoever hasn't seen this movie. You don't know what your missing. Do yourselves a favor & see this fun enjoyable film. Hancock is an entertaining action-packed piece of cinema that will engage viewers with a good story along with a fun expereince watching Will take on a hero that will inspire..

National Security starts off with a Los Angeles cop named Hank Rafferty (Steve Zahn) who ends up loosing his partner in a robbery. Years later, Hank somehow feels responsible for his partners death. One day, as Hank is going through town with grief, he stops a black man named Earl Montgomery (Martin Lawrence) who went through training as a police officer & got kicked out of the academy. When Hank & Earl, confront each other, all heck breaks loose when Earl starts talking crap about Hank. After that happens, a big bee appears in the situation & Earl is trying to get away from it while Hank is trying to whack at it. While thats happening, civilians are recording the footage that was taking place making it look like Hank was beating Earl. After that was witnessed, Hank gets into serious trouble with the police force & black people who were offended by what he did to Earl. Hank has to serve 3 years in a state penitentary but while he's in there his sentence keeps going up as he tries to stay in their long enough so he'll be alive from the black people. When its time for Hank to get out, he plans to start all over to get back in the buero but before he does he'll have to be a security guard to get to that.

While Hank is trying to take him & his gang down, he confronts Earl again after all those years in the same uniform. From there, Hank & Earl try to resolve their differences by teaming up where its not going to be that easy considering the they don't have a good relationship.

National Security is a very worthy action/comedy. Steve Zahn & Martin Lawrence make a great team as they buddy up as cops. Their both very funny at best in which you won't stop laughing for a second. The film has a fast-paced run-time where I wish it was longer but it gave me what i needed & it delevered just right. It does have some intense action here & there which is real exciting to watch. I wish there was more but this film was so much better at being a comedy than anything else. It's not a movie to take serious just have fun & being entertained by a brainless nonstop action/comedy.

Species is a scifi/horror film about an alien that is disguised as an attractive woman (Natasha Henstridge) who is trying to make a living on earth by killing men to give her baby. Meanwhile, a scentific research team (Michael Madsen), (Marg Helgenberger), (Alfred Molina), & (Forest Witaker) has been appointed by (Ben Kingsley) to find the alien & hunt her down before she causes more harm than she's already done.

Species is a fun exciting scifi film thats full of plenty of surprises. Its gerenectically entertaining with its nontop chase sequences that keep you on the edge with spectacualar suspense. The guys who watch this won't be able to take their eyes off the smokin hott Natasha Henstridge. She was real good as the sexy alien being sexual to her enviornment. There's quite a bit of bloody violence that is sometimes disturbing to watch. Sometimes it comes unexpected. The movie is full of sexuality/nudity more than anything that might not be suitable for younger viewers. I recommend parents not letting their children watch this. It's defenitly a adult film that needs to be taken seriously when it comes to kids. The acting in this is also really good. Michael Madsen is awesome as the hunter whose tracking down Natasha. You can see by watching him he has fun with his character just like the amazing Forest Witaker, kind Marg Helgenberger, & intelligent Alfred Molina. Overall, if you want to enjoy watching a good slick entertaining scifi/horror film then look no further. Species is a sexy mind tingling scifi horror adventure filled with twists & turns & great acting.

Skinwalkers is a horror/action/thriller about a 12-year boy named Timothy (Mathew Knight) & his mother, Rachel (Rhona Mitra) who realize their in a middle of a war between good/bad werewolves aks as Skinwalkers. As Timothy & Rachel are trying to stay alive, Tim's Uncle (Elias Koteas) lets him in on that he is the only one who can stop the curse forever but he only got till the end of the day to do so. Together, Rachel & family of werewolves must protect Tim through gunfights/high speed chases to make sure Tim ends the curse before time runs out.

Skinwalkers is not a good nor a bad film. It's just something you need to watch once. The movie is somewhat entertaining for its run-time. It does have quite a bit of fun action sequences. It would've been better if there were alot more though. The action & special effects is the only thing thats actually worth watching in this. The special effects wern't the best I've seen but they wern't the worst either. I was actually suprised how violent this movie is for a PG-13 which I thought was a joke by the way. This film could've been very easily a R-rated. I really don't think that rating would done the movie just anyway. For everything else in this film sucks especially the horrible acting. OK, their was quite a bit of decent acting from the cast like the gorgeous Rhona Mitra & Natassia Malthe. Elias Koteas was ok with his performance. He kinda lost in some scenes. It seems like he was rushing through with his part. Everyone else you just don't care about. I don;t know who the heck Jason Behr is but he can't acted worth crap. Everytime he was on screen he made me sick. He was trying to be the action star when he just made a complete butt of hisself. Overall, I don't recommend buying this just rent it. It's only worth seeing one time. Maybe if you can't remember it, it might worth another one but as far as the acting goes I would recommend just once so you won't have to remember how awful Jason is. Again if you just want to see action/violence, enjoy as much as u can. Skinwalkers is a terrible excuse for a movie that made the biggest mistake putting out in theaters world wide where it could've just went straight to DVD.

Rookie of the Year

Rooke of the Year is a family/comedy about a kid named Henry Rollingardner (Thomas Ian Nicolas) who lets his baseball team down. One day, that all changes when Henry has an accident that causes him to hurt his arm. From getting hurt, Henry gets something in return where he has the gift to rotate his arm with strong tendancies. Henry's favorite baseball team hires him to pitch for them where they need someone to bring their game back. Later on, Henry begins to feel like everything has been too easy for him where he's been missing out on his childhood. Henry must choose whether to stick with his gift or his family/friends.

Rooke of the Year was a decent comedy with some hillarious parts. It was entertaining enough to make yourself like it. The acting wasn't bad. It was actually the best thing about the film. The movie is very realistic but makes you think what you could end up with if you were in Henry's situation. Still is was fun little film for the whole family to enjoy. I would watch it again every now & then. I actually grew up watching this when i was very little. I still like it & i'm adult now. It seems like no matter how old i get, i wont stop watching it. Rookie of the Year will always be one of my favorite family comedies. So if your looking for a decent family/comedy that has a few good laughs check this one out.

When Casey boards a train with his niece, everything goes smoothly till that day when their train is hijacked by a psychotic terrorist (Everet McGill) along with a computer genius (Eric Bogosian) who needs the train to use a satelite to wipe out the counrty. The only way they will stop from what their doing is get a hefty ransom in return. Along with controlling the satelite, the terrorism continues as they hold everyone hostage. Ryback must use his training skills with the help an employee chef (Morris Chestnut) to help him gain access to rescue the passengers including his niece from the terrorists & stop the satelite from destroying everything in sight by saving the day once again.

Dark Territory is a worthy sequel from the first. In this one, you get a whole lot more action including brutal gunfights & fight sequences that are extremely fun to watch. The movie flows at a very steady pace warming up to get to the action. This is however very entertaining action film with decent acting where some of them were just off with their lines. To me, the acting was probably the weakest point of the whole film. The story was ok. Nothing we haven't seen before. Just another hero saving the day from terrorism. It seems as they keeping doing the same movie ever & over, their just trying to increase the action by the storyline. To me, this was a pretty good action film with plenty of it. It does contain alot of language that seemed to go over the top in parts. Overall, Dark territory is a worthy action film that will having you watching with its effects & stunts that it has going for it. It's nothing great but it is very fun if your ever bored & need something to watch to put a smile on ur face. Action fans shouldn't be disappointed by this one especially when it has the most badass action star Steven seagal in it. Dark territory is a entertaining balls to the wall action-packed blockbuster thats is effectively gripping with mindblowing stunts & spectacular enjoyment.

Fraility is a supernatural/drama/thriller that tells the story about a man (Matthew McConaughey) who is being interrogated by a FBI agent (Powers Boothe) about his life dealing with murders. The man gives the agent all the facts that are based a father (Bill Paxton) going through the stage of slaying demons in which he mentions that God chose the father to do that for a living & pass it on to his two children.

Fraility was such an awesome film with frightening story telling. Matthew McConaughey was good at telling his past when he was a kid of what he witnessed. The movie is very disturbing at times & it always keeps you watching to see what it going to happen next. It kinda scared me when they were checking to see if those people that were chosen by God were good or evil. That always gives me an itch everytime i see that. The kills are quite brutal when the demons get slayed. I think its the right amount of violence that needed to be in that film. Fraility is also extrmely entertaining as it builds suspense & moves quickly with no boring places. the acting is superb from everyone especially McConaghey & Paxton who pretty much stole the show. Overall, if you want to see a very good film with frightening situations & great acting this is the one to see. Fraility is a intense spectacular thriller with the right dose of storytelling & violent aspects that will have you on the edge & thinking throughout.

As the two of them are on the way to the courthouse, Jack finds out that not only is Eddie a criminal but a witness as well when Jack's ex-partner Det. Nugent (David Morse) comes & tells him that Eddie was going to testify against him & cops who commited a murder.Nugent offers Jack to turn Eddie over to him & join them to save the police force but Jack decides that he doesn't want to go that way, only to protect Eddie. Now, Jack & Eddie is in a race against time as they are surrounded by cops who want to bring them down. Jack must keep Eddie alive from Nugent & the crooked cops & make sure that they reach the courthouse before they end up dead.

16 Blocks is a great action film filled with exciting twists & turns that will have your heart racing. From the start it pulls you in by getting right to the point & your in for the ride. It's complete nonstop action that never lets up till the very end. Doesn't have time to stop for anything as Bruce & Mos keep running throughout the film trying to survive. There is plenty of gunfights & full of violent situations that they have to face. 16 Blocks is just faced-paced entertainment that you get hooked on. The plot is one of the best I've heard & very powerful with great acting. Bruce Willis is still the man kicking butt & doing what he does best which is entertaining the audience. Mos Def is really good as Eddie panicking wanting to stay alive. I think that Bruce & Mos made a good team working out their differences in the life or death situation. David Morse also gives a outstanding performance as Nugent, the crooked cop on Bruce & Moss's tail to stop them from talking. I actually think Morse almost stole the show. I've seen him in other films where he's good but in this he's about oscar-worthy. Overall, if your looking for a great action/thriller with enough suspense to go around then this is for you. 16 Blocks is actually one of the best action flms of 06. I enjoyed every minute of this watching the acting & exciting action sequences that keep you on the edge making you feel that your right there with Bruce & Moss. 16 Blocks is a hardcore action-packed rollercoaster thrill ride that will have your heart pumping that you don't want to be over.

Serial Killer couple, Chucky (Brad Dourif) & Tiffany (Jennifer Tilly) are back on another bloody rampage in this fourth entry in the series called Seed of Chucky. Chucky & Tiffany have been living in Hollywoord as movie stars as their just about to release their new movie Chucky goes Psycho. Later on, Chucky & tiffany find out that they have a son named Shitface (Billy Boyd) when he comes & brings them back to life using the medalion they gave him. Chucky & Tiffany begin to freak when they find out they had a son that they didn't know about. Chucky & Tiffany sure doesn't like the name he's been stuck with so they give him a name they think would be appropiate for him which is Glen. Their both trying to decide what exactly is their child, a boy ot a girl. So along the way they try to figure that out. As Glen is with hsi parents trying to fit in, Chucky wants to train him to be a full fledged killer just like him where Tiffany doesn't want to raise their child like that. Things get so frustrated with them as they have their disagreements on certain things. Chucky & Tiffany still want to get out of their doll bodies & transfer theirselves into real live human beings. Chucky & Tiffany find a couple that they think they might want to be which is actor Red Man & actress Jennifer Tilly. Chucky & Tiffany try to get a hold of the two of them so when they do they can find away to make a baby for Glen to become. There's just one little thing about that & that is that Glen doesn't want to be part of his parents tradition. All hell breaks loose, when Chucky can't take it anymore where he decides that he doesn't want Tiffany & Glenin his life. Chucky loves to be a serial killer & will not put up with his family not wanting that.

Seed of Chucky was a decent horror film. It's not the worst in the series but it's defenitly not even close to the best. It has its moments of where its gory & where it's just plain stupid. Atleast it kept me entertained just like in the rest of the series. The biggest problem that I had with this was the short run-time. It just over so fast in which it seemed that they wanted over with or couldn't do anymore with the plot which btw sucked. Seed of Chucky however delivers on the gore factor. It's probably the nastiest I've seen out of the series. There were a couple of scenes that went too far over the top with gore like when chucky took a string & wrapped around one of the moviegoers neck & ripped his head off, I thought that was pushing it. I did like one cool death scene where Glen freaked out this paparazzi dude & he lead him backwards towards acid that hit his head & melted his face. That was pretty gruesome. This one also provides hardcore sexual content that might affect some viewers when watching. I really didn't think all that was necessary but thats another story. The acting in here is ehh except for Chucky who keeps you watching with how he takes control of the picture with his kills & sense of humor. Overall, Seed of Chucky is worth the watch if your fan of the others. If your not then just stay far away because its nothing that you want be into unless your for the killer doll. Seed of Chucky shares its side of blood/gore in which you get enough of but still fails on some levels where its just insain with stupidity that almost brings it down to the poor rating,

Now, Ty is in danger where his team members plan to kill him if he doesn't finish what they started.

Armored really took me by surprise. When going to see this, I didn't think I was going to get much out of it by witnessing the trailer because it looked like it was going to suck with how much it gave away. Well, to tell you the truth, the trailer didn't really give much away at all. Of course you already know your going to get chase scenes relating to action but it had something that the trailer didn't have & that was intensity. Armored is probably the hardest PG-13 movies to date of how violent it is. I was shocked before my eyes once I saw how brutal some scenes were. I think the F-Word was in there as well which made the move seem off from a PG-13 & on to an R but it didn't go that route. Armored just gives you a good PG-13 action/crime picture with chase scenes, good acting, & some suspense that you don't see coming except from what was shown in the trailer. Believe me when I tell ya this, that the trailer didn't give ya the whole movie. It has more than you know that keeps you interested & watching throughout. Even though we've seen it all before, i think its one of the better heist/thrillers thats entertaining for that matter. It starts out kinda slow but it's just building for whats to come. When the action begins to take place it shifts into high gear & keeps going till the excting conclusion. The film is kinda kinda of short but that didn't take away from me liking it. I really had a heck of a time enjoying this movie. It has about everything that you want like good action/drama that I found satisfying. I found the two car chases really awesome that gets you pumped up for more. Now to the acting. For me, If I would have to say who made this excting was Matt Dillion. I never thought that he would do something like this in his career. Man, did he amaze me by how far he's come to play something different for a change & he did extremely well. It's funny because you don't usually root for bad guys in films like this but in this one you cheer for his character because he's so badass with everything he does. Hope he continues to take on more roles like this because he might be the next villian we've been waiting for. My second best one out of the bunch has to be Skeet Ulrich. It's been a while since he's played in anything & it was so good to have him back from the performace he gave. Skeet always sticks to a every character he takes on & makes him believable. Skeet just impressed me from how long he's came from a rookie into a big movie star. Skeet, keep it up. Your on the way too the top & beyond. Lawerence Fishburne went a little over the top almost being out of control. I thought he still was good but not the actor we know. It just seemed to me that he didnt have much to work with or just wanted to rush with his part. Lawrence wasn't bad but its just not his best performance. Columbus Short in one of those next. Now, I'm not familiar with this person but I can tell ya that this might be a good start in the acting business for him. Columbus was real good in here. Of course their were some places where he kinda was dull on but he got better as the film went on where he decided that he wanted to show the viewers what he can do to make them like him more & he proves them right. Columbus was a real surprise of what he showed me. He has the right touch of acting just needs more practice & he'll get there. Can't wait to see what he does next. For the rest of the cast were decent like Jean Reno that only had 3 lines in the whole movie so I couldn't say much about him. Amary Nolasco was decent but fell flat in some scenes that were just horrid to watch. Fred ward made a good appearence but he was harldy in this too. Overall, if you can kill 85 minutes with a fair amount of action sequences & good acting, you'll have good popcorn fun. Armored is definent watch that must be seen in the theater. Don't wait for just DVD, trust me it's not a waste of your time. Just go to the movies & have yourselves a good time with this action thrill ride. Armored is a gripping high intensity pumping thriller that provides enough heart pounding action, hard-hitting suspense & explosive entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

The Blind Side

Flixster - Share Movies

The Blindside tells the inspiring true story of an African American boy named Michael Oher who has had a poor Childhood growing-up. Michael has so much potential but has trouble understanding things as he has never had anyone teach him. All that changes one night, when a mother named Leigh Touhy (Sandra Bullock) & her husband, Sean (Tim Mcgraw) are driving & find Michael walking on the road. Leigh gets out of the car & asks Michael if he needs a place to stay. Leigh offers to take Michael in to live with them till he decides he wants to leave. As Michael is living with the Touhy's, he's never felt happier in his whole life as he feels like he has a real home & a family that really cares for him. One day, Michael gets his wish as The Toughy's ask him to be one of the family. Michael accepts the Toughy's offer & is officially on of them now. From there, Michael becomes everything the Toughy's expect as he accomplishes & reaches goals from beyond measure.

The Blindside has be the best movie I've seen all year long. I just had such a fun & enjoyable time while watching it. During the whole film there is not a single boring moment there. You get touching & funny scenes that make you smile & cry. The story & acting was so powerful & amazing beyond anything I have ever witnessed. Sandra Bulock gives your best performance ever as the mother who puts herself on the line for Michael by taking him in to her family. Sandra was also very sarcastic in some scenes that cracked me up. She just knows how to show the audience a good time especially by her looks. I loved the color of Sandra's hair which brightened her face. Sandra still proves that she is the most talented actress out there. I just love her to death in which she will be on of my favorite actresses of all time. Welcome back Sandra, its good to have ya back. The one who I was impressed with was country singer, Tim Mcgraw who gave a breakthrough performance. I've seen Tim in some films where he's good to make it believible but from this, he plays just like he is in real life. Tim played such a great father who cares for his family willing to do anything for them. Sandra & Tim's two children were also surprisngly good. The boy who played Sean Toughy Jr. is a very smart youngen who tries his best to help Michael with whatever he needs help with. Thought that was very funny & cool at the same time. Sandra's daughter was very sweet in that one scene where Michael was sitting in the library all by hisself & she came over there & sat with him so he wouldn't feel lonely. The Blindside had a good run-time even though it was long but entertaining all the way. There's no way nobody cannot like this one. It's just so watchable that you can't take your eyes for a second. It draws you in with the characters feeling what they go through & everything. Overall, The Blindside again is the best true movie I've ever seen & the most emotional one. Even if you don't like true story's I'm sure you'll love this one. I assume that everyone loves the true story films because of how exciting they are. But like I said, if your not in dramas or based on a true story kind of thing you might not dig it. In my opinion this film is for everyone. Everyone has to see this with no exceptions. I would be very happy to own this to my collection of my DVD's. The Blindside is a great true story that will be adored by viewers by incredible acting, entertaining premise without flaws, & emotional & heart feeling time at the movies.

(Nicolas Cage) plays Cris Johnson, a magician with a secret gift of knowledge who can see what happens next in the future. There's just one thing, Cris can only look for 2 mins & thats it. As Cris is going around the world changing things, Special Agent Ferris (Julliane Moore) of the FBI is on the hunt for Cris in which they need him for a very important mission to help'em with. As this goes on, Cris meets a beautiful civilian named Liz (Jessica Biel) who helps him not get caught. Later on, things start getting very bad for Cris as he not only puts hisself in danger but Liz, Ferris, & everyone else as well when he witnesses a terrorist (Thomas Kretschmann) who is planning to set off a nuclear bomb. Cris must combine with the FBI to stop the terrorism before civilization comes to an end.

Next was a pretty darn good film filled with so much entertainment & twists that you don't see coming. Next is a very fast moving flick with enough thrilling action sequences/fantasy to keep you watching & intrested. Some of the effects looked kind of cheesy but they still keep you wanting more. Nicolas Cage played his character well just like he always does. There's only one thing that I didn't like about him & not seem hisself was his hair. It was just dreadful looking that made you think that it wasn't him. Nic still manages to entertain the viewers with his actions. There's also quite a bit of humor in this as well. I loved Jessica Biel in this even though I already love her in anything she plays. I thought she acted very well. Jessica is stepping up her game in different roles she takes. Julliane Moore was also good. She did what she had to do & pulled it off nicely. Overall, Next is solid piece entertaining action flick thats worth seeing again & again. If you love action/scifi then this one is for you. Its not to be taken seriously just have fun with what it is.

The Final Destination

Flixster - Share Movies

Death has come back to haunt teens for the last time. Only this time you get to experience in 3D. This one starts off at a racetrack where one of the teens gets a premonition that something terrible is about to happen. When that person gets that feeling, an explosion occurs centering around them where almost everyone in the stands gets wiped out by suppliances that exploded from the race cars & kills half of them. From there, strange things start haunting each & everyone that survived the massacre. The survivors must work together to cheat death & get rid of the madness once & for all.before they end up being next.

Good:
I have to say when seeing the preview & notice that it was 3D, I wasn't really pumped up for it because I didn't think it was going to be any good. Man, was I wrong about that. My expectations changed when I watched the opening sequence where 3D came to life. From there on, I kept craving for more & it gave me exactly what I wanted. Theirs nothing really new about this one only that its the best out the four by a mile, in other words its buries the other ones in a heart beat. The only thing I found that was different was the survivors causing their accident by going near things which makes death kill them a whole lot faster. I loved how the credits opened after the deaths at the racetrack. I found it amazing how they used an x-ray showing a mix of the deaths that occurred in the series. The deaths are awesome over the top bloody & gruesome like you've never seen before. When witnessing before & after the deaths, you get the situation that their in thrown right off screen into your face. The accidents that happen to the survivors are nasty at times but very well done. I also was very impressed with the CGI they added in 3D. I thought that made it that much greater to experience. I was very surprised that this succeeded for me. Watching this made my day by giving me a fun time at the movies. The movie makes you feel like your in the characters shoes of what they are going through & everything. I was also very surprised of how entertaining this movie came out to be. For a second, could you not take your eyes off the screen. It makes you keep watching waiting till what happens next. I had a really enjoyable time watching this even though it was a short run time but it didn't feel like it which made the movie a good length.

Bad:
This one would have been a perfect 5/5 for me if it wasn't for the terrible acting. OK, I have seen some really bad acting in horror movies before but for this one just completely sucked ass. I didn't know everyone on screen but one which was Mykelti Williamson. He's been good in alot of movies up till now. I don't know whats gone wrong with him but I think it's time for him to retire. I do have to admit that some actually tried acting like Bobby Campo & the sexy Shantel VanSanten. I only have one complaint about them which didn't fit was the fact that they didn't really show their fear towards everyone dying in those accidents. To me, they were the only ones who were cut out for something like this. So I guess I'll cut them some slack because it's their first time in a motion picture. The two that I think shouldn't have a career in the movie business are Nick Zano & Haley Webb. First I'll talk about Nick Zano who played Hunt, a guy who acts like he's all that & thinks he's being funny but he just embarrasses his self when he's on screen. It would of been better for him if he only had an short amount of screen time instead of him being throughout most of the entire film. Next is Haley Webb who took on the ridiculous Janet. In scenes she makes you think she's taking control & having fun but she just messes her acting up right from the start. Nowhere near will she ever be an actress. She just doesn't have what it takes. The only thing she can do is saying some lines where it only looks like she's rehearsing. Man, was she way off course when she wanted star in a film. Hope she stops it right now before she hurts herself. Everyone else I didn't care for because they weren't as important as those 5 I talked about. The acting was the only thing that bothered me. I know this movie wasn't made for acting but seriously they could've done a whole lot better. Like I said before this wasn't mean't to see for the acting,

Overall, if your a fan of the genre or the other Final Destinations you don't won't to miss this one. This has it all. It's a shocking thrill ride that will make you squirm, fear, jump, & cheer. This film was made to have fun watching people die in 3D & thats exactly what it gives you. From the ending, I couldn't really tell if theirs going to be another one but if they plan a sequel I'm definitely there.I just hope they bring back the 3d because it was amazing for this one. By far this is the best one yet. Grab some popcorn & brace yourself for this 3D horror rollercoaster ride that you just want to experience again & again.

I have to say this remake from the 74 version was great. I didn't see the original but I'm sure it was just as good as this one was. This thriller grabs you right from the start & takes you for an edgy ride till the end. It was filled with twists & turns that you don't see coming. It also had quite a bit of action to go along with it too that just holds your attention that much more. Seeing all these big budget action movies who would've thought that something like this could be just as exciting. I only have a few small complaints about this film & that is the way this picture was shot. From the very opening credits it shows you cut scenes in slow-mo that was kinda of distracting at times. It didn't bother me too much as it went on because I got use to it. I guess that Tony Scott has his own way to shoot different ways in this case I thought it worked with this one. My last complaint is that I think this movie could've provided a little bit more action. Every action/thriller as this one's called is suppose to have a great action sequence towards the end. It failed at doing so which gave a bad ending. The way this movie succeeded was the chemistry by our two main stars Washington & Travolta. The two of them play it out in a gritty game of cat & mouse which was very surprising & enjoyable to watch. When watching Denzel & John go head to head, they give you a genuine rush of thrills & entertainment. The first two acts Denzel & John is dazzling it out with each other by talking through the mic which never gets boring at any time. The third act is just all action when Denzel is chasing John in a long sequence downtown New York as he's escaping. I was just so amazed how everyone's acting turned out in this film especially our two legends Washington & Travolta.

Denzel was brillant as he always is as the good guy saving the day at the last minute. There's nothing really shockng about his performace because he always manges to make the audience smile while watching him. Many people will think that he's played this role so many times before but he hasn't. It's completely different than his previous ones. This time around, Denzel is playing a dispatcher for a subway station negotiating with John & ends up becoming a hero. Denzel still has incredible acting ability that everytime I see him on screen, he just keeps getting better & better.

Nothing surprising about John being the bad guy. He just keeps proving that he's the best at portraying as a villian ever. When first witnessing John upon on screen, I was amazed how well he looked as a baddie. I thought his style was what made his character believible. John was good at taking control of the hostages on the train. In some scenes he went over the top just like he does in almost every bad guy role he plays. The thing that I think could've been toned down a bit with his character was him saying mother****** throughout. When he was cursing the entire time, I just couldn't picture him saying that word so many times. Yeah, of course he can curse here & there but he just said that word way too much. Other than that, he had a knockout performance that I think stole the whole show.

John Turturro who was the negotiator of the police force gave a mesmerizing performance that was his best yet in his career. Next, is the wonderful James Gandolfini who portrayed the mayor. While watching James, he actually makes you believe that he is the mayor the whole time when seeing him on screen.

Overall, Pelham 123 is an exciting thrill ride from the begining & doesn't let up till the climax. Even though it had a disappointing ending, the movie still came clean through its own terms by Washington & Travolta's chemistry. If your looking for a straightfoward action flick, don't see this one. This is a heist drama/thriller with a fair amount of action. Trust me you won't be disappointed except for the ending. I wanted to give a perfect score for this film but the ending just took it away. Pelham is a hostage action/thriller with character develpoment, great acting, edge of your seat thrills & chills & entertainment value. So grab a seat & hold on tight when watching this exhilrating summer popcorn film.

Ryder: Life is simple now. They just have to do what I say.

Public Enemies is extremly good crime/drama. It was satisfying enough where it keeps you entertained as you enjoy watching Depp as Dillinger going about his life as a gangster. This movie has about everything you want in a crime movie which includes action, drama, romance & thrills. This movie had alot of shootouts where Depp outguns Bales men who are on his tail all the way. i have good & bad points about this film but didn't affect me from loving it.

What I liked about the shootings was hearing the loud gunshots from the sub machine guns. I've never experienced hearing guns firing that loud before. It seemed as if dynamite was going off in the theater as I was watching it. There was one great shootout that took place at a lodge in Little Bohemia as Purvis closes in on Dillinger & his gang. It lasted about 15 minutes long which was a complete shocker. Thats scene alone stand as the best shootout I've ever experience in a film. Don't think they will make another movie with a long shootout like that ever. The shootouts were the biggest highlights in the film I think.

The next thing I liked about this movie was the digital filming. I don't know why everyone is complaining so much about the way this film was made. Everyone knows that Michael Mann has his own way of filming his movies. Michael Mann likes to put you right in the show while watching. I thought the high digital was rather appropiate for this film because it was a biography of John Dillinger. I thought that made it more interesting to watch. However, I do have to agree with others on one thing & that is how close he had the camera up on the characters. Like I said before just the way Michael shoots. It's different but I still like it. In some way the digtal feel to the movie made it entertaining. I hope Mann continues to use digital in filming his movies. It's the best I've seen yet.

My negative points about this film was not having develop on any of the characters. I mean once the movie starts off, you see Dillinger going to prison but ends up escaping with his gang where neither one of them are introduced. I thought the opening was a a bit rushed. So i'm guessing that was the reason why we didn't get to know everyone. I just don't see how Mann could forget knowing the characters. Thats the main key to any movie. You never jump into a movie without character development first. If you don't know who anyone is, how can you like or even get into them. Well, I'm sorry to say for those you are going in for that you will come out empty handed.

My next problem I had with this film was the love story. I know that Dillinger got involved with a woman but this was just about Dillinger & his gang against Purvis & his Feds. I just thought it would've made the movie better if they just stook out the love story & concenrated on the cat & mouse between Depp & Bale.

Now, the acting from the cast. All I can say is Wow! from everyone. None of the casting was bad which was a surprise. The real stars that shines here is Depp, Bale, & the lovely Marion Cottilard. Those three just made this movie spectacular to watch. If it wasn't for them, this movie would be nothing.

Johnny Depp who portrayed the legendary bank robber John Dillinger was perfectly casted. Depp was a very vicious gang leader who knows what he's doing. Johnny does exactly what he's suppose to do in his role & that is stay in control. Johnny is good in anything he does that comes off with no surprise. You can just tell when you see him that he's ready for anything meaning getting the job done. His performance for this one is a goldmine thats considered his best performance ever.

Christian Bale whos my favorite actor played Melvin Purvis who was assigned to track down Dillinger & his gang. I think that Bale was side with Depp stealing the show. It was tied between the two of them where I don't know which one is better than the other. What I liked about Christian in this one was his southern accent. He made it look so believible. Didn't really know how he was going to do with it before watching him but after I was very impressed that I know he can do anything when he sets his mind on it.

The beautiful Marion Cottilard who played Billie Fretchette aka Dillinger's girlfriend. Not knowing who this woman is but after watching her I noticed that she comes off powerful. She proves that she has star power still after winning all those awards for best actress. I know why Mann picked her to star in this film because of her looks & her glorius oscar worthy acting. I thought she had good chemistry with Depp during the scenes I saw the two of them in. It was defenily believible enough. For seeing Marion for the first time on screen, I fell in love with her. She's just so talented & gorgeous. Hope to see more of her in films such as this one.

Overall, if your in to true life biopics, action/adventure, & the actors this one is the one for you. If you go in expecting that this movie is like the dark knight, its not. Public Enemies is full of firepower thats stunning & visualizing arts with a story that keeps you interested, extroadinary acting, & intense moments that will keep you on the edge watching till the final showdown.

John Dillinger: They ain't tough enough, smart enough or fast enough. I can hit any bank I want, any time. They got to be at every bank, all the time.

John Dillinger: Were having to much fun today to think about tomorrow.

Melvin Purvis: The only way you're walking out of this jail cell is when we take you out to execute you. Johnny Depp: Well we'll see about that.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a remake from the original about teenagers who go on a road trip & get stranded in a mysterious town surrounded by psychotic beings who have a maniac that hunts for blood with a deadly chansaw who is known by Leatherface.

2003's Texas Chainsaw Massacre isn't bad for a remake. It's actually one of the better horror remakes out there that does what its set out to which is having a scary fun time. This one offers plenty of blood/gore where in some scenes it was bit too much but didn't hurt it. It still succeeded my expectations where at first I thought it was going to be crap but at the end I throughly enjoyed it. I think they picked a good actor to play Leatherface. The make-up effects made him frightening & realistic. The one that was really impressed with was the beautiful, Jessica Biel. Man, that girl as a sexy body & powerful acting skills where your heart was set on emotion being scared. Jessica played it so good she might just be the next scream queen. This movie made Jessica a star actress where you know that she can play any character on screen. Everyone was good but not as good as her. Overall, if your looking for a scaresome typical horror film this is the one for you. Texas Chainsaw Massacre takes you for an entertaining survival bloody rampage ride full of frightening moments that will make you jump & quiver through the eyes of the most sadistic killer horror icon.

The Nutty Professor

The Nutty Professor is about a Professor named Sherman Klump (Eddie Murphy) who has always felt bad about his weight. One night he experiments on hisself by turning hisself thinner. Sherman is now called Buddy who has never felt so good in his life. Sherman tries to keep it a secret by not letting anyone know that Buddy is him. Things get bad for Sherman when somehow he can't control hisself as Buddy tries to take over him. Now Sherman must make a choice either to go on life as a big man or live as Buddy.

The Nutty Professor is one of my all-time fav comedies. Eddie Murphy just makes hisself a believible fat guy. I liked how Eddie played like 5 or 6 different people in this film where it must've been hard for him but experience at the same time. Eddie Murphy just rocks at being a comedian even though I thought his side playing Buddy was a jerk but still awesome. Jada Pinkett Smith who played Mrs. Perdy was gorgeous as ever with her kindness & how she respected Murphy for who he was. I thought that was very touching. Hard to find people like that in the world who love you for who you are. Overall, The Nutty Professor is still one fo the best comedies ever & a emotional at that. Eddie will always be one of the best Kings of Comedy.

Vegas Vacation

The Griswolds are back for more fun/adventure in this standout comedy sequel, Vegas Vacation. Clark (Chevy Chase) comes home from work one day & tells his wife, Liz (Beverly D'Angelo) & kids, Rusty (Ethan Embry) & Audrey that he got a big bonus from one of his samples. Thats When Clark pulls out a brochure for Las Vegas where he decides that he wants take the family for vacation this summer. Clark & Liz are happy about it but Rusty & Audrey don't understand how thats a family vacation where all they have down there in Vegas is Casinos to gamble. Vegas won't be much fun for Rusty & Audrey where their under age & can't gamble. As long as Clark is happy, its all good. As the Griswolds vacation goes on, things start falling apart for them as they have disagreements. It just keeps getting worse & worse as Clark starts gambling & looses all his money. Thats when he finds his brother (Randy Quaid) who unfortunatley helps him out getting his money back. Later on, the Griswolds begin to realize how important it is to keep their family together & know that even though they have their arguements, that won't stop the love they share.

I'm not going to say Vegas Vacation isn't one of the best of the Griswolds adventures but it's certainly not the worst either. It was just decent with some laughs in there. It was however entertaining enough to keep you watching & having fun with. Chevy is still good as Clark, Beverly D'Angelo is still secy as Liz, kids which are all grown up now who play Ethan Embry & girl who plays Audrey are believible enough to get in thei character, & hillarious Randy Quaid is funnier as ever that stole the show for me. Even though Randy is sometimes disgusting & stupid, he cracks me up so hard lol. Overall, Vegas Vacation is worth the watch & when i say that doesn't exactly mean a one time. Just a few here & there when your bored. Don't get me wrong its still worthy sequel in the National Lampoon's series just not as funny/adventurous as the other ones were.

I thought the run-time was good for this film. It wasn;t too long nor too short. It was just perfect. Its extremely entertaining as you join the crew looking for the treasure & get excited along the way with nonstop fun throughout. Overall, this sequel stays true to the first with much more going for it. If you want a good laugh with a fun story & characters then look no more.

The Getaway is an action/thriller remake about a caper couple named Doc Carter McCoy (Alec Baldwin) & his astouding wife, Carol (Kim Basinger) who have been callled upon by a wealthy bussiness man, Jack Benyon (James Woods) to pull off a dangerous heist.

Everywhere Doc & Carol turn danger heads towards them where they have no choice to defend theirselves during violent shootouts & high speed chases to stay alive.

The Getaway is a fun, exciting ride from start to finish. It's extremely entertaining actioner filled with heartponding suspense & electryfying action at every turn. When I first watched this, I didn't know that it was a remake. I haven't seen the original so i can't tell ya if it was better than the remake. I can tell ya this, that I found this remake to be good. Alec & Kim are at their best which by the way makes a wonderful couple even though sometimes they argue too much but I guess thats the extent of their relationship. The married couple acted as it was in real life. They were both good & enjoyed their performances. Warning: this film does display some strong sexuality exspecially in the uncut & unrated version which may violate to younger viewers. Even though this wasn't a great action film. It had fantastic moments of gunplay where it used some of John Woo slo-mo in some scenes that I found intriguing. I loved the way that was put in where it made the action stylistic in those sequences. Their's a good shootout towards the end that has lots of the slo-mo going on. One of the best shootouts i've witnessed in a long time. I just thought this was exhilerating film with good plot, good acting, good action, & shocking suspense. All this film is good for is entertainment & that's exactly what it gives ya. The Getaway is adventurous story driven sexy action/thriller filled with explosive mindblowing gunfights & chases that keeps you rooting for more.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra



(Stephen Sommers), the Director who brought you the Mummy brings you another action/adventure about a special unit of soldiers you battle wits against a evil cooperation run by the villianous Destro in G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA.

I must say when I heard about & saw the trailer for G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA, I wasn't too thrilled. I thought it was going to be just another corny addaption that a director put together that was painfully bad to experience. With G.I. JOE it succeeds where its awesomely done as Sommers brings the cartoon to life. I was very surprised how much fun I had watching G.I. JOE. It's basically nonstop action from start to finish thats hardcore intenssity with huge explosions & bullets fying all over the place for it's 120 run time. Even though the movie wasn't exactly like the cartoon, I still thought it was cool how Sommers took it & made it into something everyone could enjoy. Sommer's managed to make the actors like action figures in a futuristic way. This film just blew me away with it's incredible action sequences & fun moments. When the action hits, they are extremely loud for the hearing impaired which saying not a bad thing since I like to listen to it. The only problem I had with this was the fact the effects went a little over the top where it made the movie look too cartoonish. The story was kinda cool but thats not really the main issue here. All G.I. JOE was made for was to enjoy it for what it is, a big summer popcorn action film. The acting in this film was decent. I mean your not going to have an oscar worthy of actors in a film like this. The one I thought stood out the most was Channing Tatum as Duke. I thought Channing carried the movie well. He showed alot of emotion & looked like he had fun with his character. Their were also a few babes in here that were smokin hot like the Baroness played by the sexy (Sienna Miller) & lovely (Rachel Nicols) as Scarlet in those tight leather suits. I know the guys will have a time watching them. The legendary Dennis Quaid kinda failed for me as he went over the top with his character making it seem like he was rehearsing. If I had to choose my favorite one of the lot, I would have to go with Ray Park who was Snake Eyes. Man, that dude is just so fun to watch as he does his martial art moves & weaponary skills. Everything about him is awesome & amazing in way thats hard to believe that he's doing all his stunts. Ray was just all over the place in this one which was good. Snake Eyes really kicked butt. Hope to see him kick more on the second one. The others were just alright but not really special as the ones I just mentioned. I think the other actors felt the same way, just having fun with something like this. I mean who couldn't when you have the oppurtunity to become an action figure? BTW this interprets a sequel from the ending, I can't wait to see how the second one is going to turn out. I'm guessing more action than this one but I was surprised how much action this one had for the first one, it was surprisingly amazing.

Overall, G.I. JOE is a must see for action junkies. It's probably the greatest action movie I've seen in my life. So if your familiar with the cartoon its a definent watch. If you've never heard of the cartoon which is highly unlikely, you'll still have tons of fun with it. If you just turn your brain off for 2 hours which really didn't seem all that long since it was so fast paced with entertainment, you'll love this one. So far G.I. JOE is best cartoon adaptation ever made. G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA is a fast paced, entertaining exciting, adrenaline rushed actiioner that expodes off screen full of nonstop action packed stunts that are impossible to take your eyes off.

Face off has a ton nonstop action sequences including shootouts, chasing, & explosions throughout. The acting was great from everyone including the main stars of the movie which are John Travolta & Nicolas Cage. It has alot of bad language so dont be suprised when you watch this film. John Woo did excellent job with the gunfight scenes & set pieces. I really enjoyed this film & I'm sure everyone else will feel the same way too. This is also a very entertaining action flick so you wont be bored one bit while watching it. Overall, I recommend this movie for action junkies only, nothing more. Face Off is a rocket.full adrenaline pumping action.

To destroy your enemy, you must find him, face him, and then... become him.

Saw III
Saw III(2006)

Flixster - Share Movies

Saw 3 leaves off where the second left off. Thsi time Jigsaw/John (Tobin Bell) kidnaps a father named Jeff (Angus Mcfayden) who lost his son in a terrible accident & a nurse named Lynn (Bahar Soometh) who John needs to help him with his cancer condition. Jigsaw starts his game by sending Jeff through a series of tests against his case against his son while Lynn is trapped taking care of John by giving him surgery. As all this goes on, Jeff gets in deep with trying to find out who killed his son. Jeff must reach the end to see who's responsbible by witnessing sadistic torture from Jigsaw's traps.

Now, this is what I call a SAW movie. SAW 3 has to be one of the best yet to come. It has so many disturbing scenes that make you cringe but at the same time cherring for more. This one was even more entertaining than the second which was such a surprise. I only have two compaint's about this one. One is that it went way over the top with the gore. I don't see how they got away with throwing so much after scene after scene, it was crazy I still was satisfied with it. My #2 complant is when the traps were going on the victims looked like they were kinda rehersing making it look unbelivible. I jsut thought that was so wrong torturing the audience watching that. There were alot of good traps in this. There was one that makes me squirm everytime I watch it. Its the trap that features a guy being torutured in this rack where every part of his part is his body is cracking. Yeah, that had to be the best trap I've seen so far in the SAW series. The acting this time around was sorta good. Can't say it was great because it wasn't. The only standing actors alone were Tobin Bell of course & the talented Shawnee Smith who played Amanda. Everyone else was ok. Just wish they could've done a little better. Overall, SAW 3 fits perfect to the series. I wish the second one was as good as this one. I guess why it wasn't is because everyone can't be the same. There's always one thats different from the other. SAw fans will be more pleased with this sequel than the last. If you can handle gory grotesque sequences involving torture than you won't have a problem watching this. SAw 3 is fun smart enjoyable sequel that will sure get you excited with all the gory moments that it has to offer.

Saw II
Saw II(2005)



Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) is back with more deadly traps for new victims in SAw 2. SAw 2 takes place a few months later from the first where Detective Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg) is investigating the murders of Jigsaw. Later on, Detective MAtthews sends his swat team in to get Jigsaw so he can be stopped once & for all. There's just one little problem, Jigsaw has kidnapped some people that he has locked up in a room where they are suffocating if they don't get an andodote in time. What really pushes Matthews over the edge is that Jigsaw has his son along in that room. Now Matthews must play Jigsaw's game if he wants to save his son & everyone that he's got trapped.

SAW 2 was a decent sequel. I actually expected it to be way better than the first but it was good enough. It's kind of like the first in way where the victims are in a room together but not chained up. This sequel has more blood but traps wern't so good. There were jsut a few that I was interested in. The other ones were like ehhh. Atleast this one was entertaining. It's really fast paced that goes through real quick. I don't know if I wanted it to be longer or not. I don't think that would really help that much. They have an unrated version so that could make up for the theactrical. I was really surprised by how good the acting was. Donnie Wahlberg who played Detective Matthews was really good with his performance. I liked how his anger was over Jigsaw. I thought he was good being a father worrying about his son & trying to get him back. Donnie had a pretty foul mouth in here. He said alot of f-bombs throughout. To me, Donnie made this movie. Tobin Bell as Jigsaw is no surprise. He's still good at playing the mastermind killer with a smartelic sense of humor. By this one, I can tell that there is no way he can fail with his character. Overall, SAW 2 is worthy of the entry. I just expected better. I'm guessing why it wasn't great is because its still building up trying to get everything out of the way so the traps will begin. SAw 2 is a must see if you liked the first. Just don't expect anything spectacular. SAw 2 is a jolt of high energy psycological thrills that will have you watching but leave you a little unsatisfied.

SAW is an amazing accomplishment into horror filmaking. Everything about this film was right on topic. The storyline was brilliant that keeps you interested & waiting to see what's coming next. The cinemotography was beautifully well shot. This movie will just blow you away of how great it is. The acting was superb fantastic. Tobin Bell who I wasn't familiar with till i saw this was amazing by how scary the tone of his voice is on speaker. Tobin is pretty much the reason why this movie succeeded in the first place. The villian had to work or the movie wouldn't came clean. SAW brings horror classics back to life. This one was very intense by how grisly & gritty it came to be. There were scenes throughout that wete very disturbing in the stinct that you just can't bother looking away where it keeps you watching & waiting for more. The violence was at best. I liked how they didn't overdo the gore factor where they got just the right dose to go around. This one was just the first of the series just getting you ready for whats to come in the next one. You can tell their is going to be a second b/c of the huge exciting twist at the end. Man, that blew me away so bad I had to experience again & again. One of the best twists I've seen a long time. Trust me, who ever hasn't seen this yet, you'll be surprised as I was. There's no way you'll be disappointed by SAW, its impossible. SAW is classic filmaking chill factor that will have you cringing, gasping for air till the exciting finale.

From there, Things get bad for Nick & everyone else that had to do with Clyde's case as Clyde threatens to kill each in everyone of them if he doesn't get what he wants.

I must say when i first watched Law Abiding Citizen, i didn't know what to expect really except for great acting which was no surprise. It just so happens that Law Abiding Citizen really shocked me how amzing it was. I've seen some good thrillers in my day but this was beyond those. Law abiding Citizen ls a real thriller thats Dark Knight meets Silence of the Lambs meets Saw. It keeps you on the edge with pure awesomeness alway through. It doesn't have time to slow down as it keeps you entertained with everything happening. This has to be the best film I've seen on the big screen filled with exciting moments that you don't see coming. It's like experiencing being on a rollercoaster that launces you like a rocket from start to finsh. I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this film. Br prepared to be warned on seeing this about the rating. This film is very violent in which it's very bloody & gory in parts. Last but not least is the hardcore language. It's not as worse as some revenge films like the lastest death sentence & punisher: war zone but its pretty bad. What made this movie succeed are the two main actors Geard Butler & Jamie Fox. The chemistry between the two of them was brilliant that makes you go woah. I only have one comlaint that didn't really sooth me & that was the ending. It was a good twist & all & didn't see it coming but instead of getting at the end, they gave it 30 mins till it was over that was different but at the same time disappointing. I like to witness twists at 5 mins before not way before. Anyway, I still think the first & second part was good enough to make this film great on its own terms. Overall, if you like thrillers, drama, & an enough action to go along. go see this. I promise you will defenitly like it if you turn your brain off & have fun with it. I'll be looking for this when it hits dvd so I can own it, its that good yall. Law Abiding Citizen is thrill of a minute heatpounding rollercoaster that will keep you guessing & glued watching till the end.

Zombieland
Zombieland(2009)

Flixster - Share Movies

Zombieland is a horror/action/comedy about a disease from a mad cow that mutated humans into zombies. Almost everyone in the world is a zombie except 4 that survived it. The worlds only hope is a nerdy boy named Columbus (Jessie Eisenberg), a rough edged cowboy zombie hunter named Talahasee (Woody Harreleson), & two sexy sisters named Witchata (Emma Stone) & Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) who must collide together to fight off the zombies to make their the world peacful once again.

Zombieland is a very funny entertaining masterpiece. From the start where the movie opened up with one of Metallica's songs I knew that I was in for something great & thats exactly what this film turned out to be. I was laughing pretty much throughout. I couldn't really remember when I wasn't laughing. Zombieland is different from most horror comedies in where you see something happen to the zombies, tts funny. Like Woody Harrelson is shooting zombies riding a rollercoaster its funny. This reminded me alot like shoot'em up how crazy things were happening. This movie has good writing than most horror comedies. I loved how they introduced the characters. Everyone of them are named by a capital of a state telling where their from. I thought that was pretty cool. Zombieland is a very hard r in which its filled with blood/gore & hardcore language. Some might find some of the violence very disturbing but fans will love it. The acting was amazing in this film.

The main star I think that was the best in this was Woody Harrelseon. His character was such badass how he loved killing zombies for a hobbie. Woody seemed like he enjoyed playing his part & having fun with. Woody is so awesome when it comes to action. I can see him in more like this. This is what he needs to do more often. Good ot have you back Woody, we missed ya.

Jessie Eisenberg is next with his talented skills. I loved how he had rules around for zombies. I thought they went well with this film & it wouldn't of been any good if Jessie wasn't doing the dialouge for them. He's pretty much what made this move funny. Jesse really surprised me by his performance. Hope to see more from him in the future.

Overall, Zombieland was great fun killer ride that will spark up viewers. If you love comedies, action, blood/gore I highly recommend this for you because it has plenty of it. Zombieland is nonstop thrill ride with action-packed sequences & laugh out loud moments that will leave you satisfied.

Alpha Dog
Alpha Dog(2007)

Alpha Dog is based on the true story about the biggest drug dealer named Johnny Truelove (Emile Hirsch) who ends up kidnapping a 15 year old boy (Anton Yelchin) to show one of his crime buddies named Jake Masursky (Ben Foster) that he means business when it comes to money. Johnny doesn't realize how much trouble he's getting hisself in but he's willing to go the extra mile to doing whatever it takes to settle the score. A good friend of Johnny's (Justin Timberlake) was also involved with the kidnapping. Together, they must figure out a way to come clean before the whole world comes down on them.

Alpha Dog was a very good crime/drama that he me on the edge all the way through. This film sends a message telling us that we all mistakes in life but their are some that we can't fix. This film makes you wonder what you would do if you were the one who kindnapped someone by making a point. I was amazed how much I enjoyed it. Its extremely entertaining as it provides great performances by the cast. There were some who I was really impressed with like Justin Timberlake. I thought Justin was only mean't for singing but by witmessing him in this, man, we blew me away with his character as he's the one that stole the show for me. Another that was great was the talented Ben Foster. There were some scenes where he went over the top but he pretty much did his thing. I thought Ben was good how he was willing to get his brother back. Ben also had a mouth on him in here. I'm sure that comes with all good performances in an r-rated film. Ben succeeded with his part that he was surprisingly made for. It was good to see a Bruce Willis as he portrayed Johnny's father doing everything in his power to help his son out from making his big mstake. Sharon Stone also played small part as the 15 year old boy's worrying mother. There were no doubts about her part. I already knew Sharon would do well just like she does in any other. Alpha Dog is also very sad film that will make you hurt inside full of emotion. I love storys that are based on true life. It's interesting to know what really happened in our life time. There are some things that you need to be warned about seeing this film. One of them is drug use as theirs alot of that going on here. Second, is sexual material that might not be suitable for all viewers. Lastly, is the nonstop pervasive language that was way over the top with the f-word. Overall, if your into exciting true storys dealing with crime that heartfelt full of fine performances then this one is for you. Alpha Dog is an unforgettable breathtaking crime/gangster drama that will have you entertained packed full of punches.

They don't know who could've sent it or why which gets them both very frightened. Daniel decides to open the package up just curious to see waht it is. When Daniel unwraps the package, he witnesses a chest that has a dummy lying inside of it. Daniel thinks the dummy is kinda a neat & freaky at the same time. Later on, Daniel goes out to get something leaving his wife along with the dummy. While Daniel's wife is the dummy, things start getting very strange as everything seems to get so quiet around her. Moments later, something attacks Daniel's wife as she screams for mercy. When Daniel gets back home, he witnesses that his wife has been murdered.

Hours later, Daniel files a report about his wife to the cops. A detecive (Donnie Wahlberg) enters the crime scene to investigate the homicide. The detective begins to question Daniel about the situation. Daniel tries to explain to the detective the best he could. When Daniel tells the detective what he witnessed & what happened before, the detective doesn't know whether to believe Daniel or not. Thats when it gets the detective's attention that Daniel is the one who killed his wife. The detective tells Daniel that he's the one guilty till he can find some hard evidence on the case.

The next day, Daniel gets a call from his father (Bob Gunton) who wants him to come home where he wants Daniel to have his wife's funeral at. Daniel begins to gather his things & the doll to head home. Daniel has driving a long ways & decides to stop the night at a motel.

From there on, Daniel tries to figure out the mystery of Mary Shaw while everyone else involved with her murder is being killed off one by one. Daniel is the only person who can end the horror Mary Shaw madness but Daniel better beware not to scream or he'll be next on death's list.

Dead Silence was very scary film that had me jumping & full of fear many of times watching it throughout. The story keeps you interested & entertained for a good 80 minutes. This film was filled with twists & turns you never see coming. It's not as violent but atleast it stayed true with the horror genre being scary. It only shows violent images of peoples tongues ripped out. Atleast you know what happened instead of guessing how the victims died. I tell ya the first time I watched this film, I was watching in the dark getting scared out of wits. Its ine movie that has me in fear. It's always hard for me to watch but enjoy the heck out of it. It's different than most horror films now days. Their were some pretty good performances in here. Ryan Kwanten, Amber Valetta, & Donnie Wahlberg. Overall, Dead Silence is worth watching for its short runtime. I jsut wish it could've been a little bit longer but I think it was good enough being a horror film. If you like to get scared & mystery horror films, this is the one for you. Just don't expect watching a state of the art gore kind of film. So if this is for you, grab some popcorm & enjoy the freakiest horror show of your life..

Jennifer's Body





Jennifer's Body is a new horror/comedy tale about a beautiful high school teen named Jennifer (Megan Fox) who has the perfect looks but other than that she also has something that lives within inside her body that turns her into a flesheating monster that has an appetite for boys. One by one Jennifer picks off boys left & right. The only person who can stop the killings is Jennifer's best friend (Amanda Seyfried) who must find a way to hunt & send her demon back to hell before she ends up being lunch too.

Jennifer's Body was alright horror comedy. It wasn't scary but sometimes funny. The only thing this film had going for it was entertainment & mostly the lovely Megan Fox. Without those two things the movie would've sucked. I was really disappointed by the rating. It says its rated for bloody violence. Waht bloody violence? Did yall see any? because I sure didn't. You only see whats happening to victims in shadows which wasn't good enough. After Megan is done with them, you can see the victim mutilated but why couldn't show how they got that way. I just didn't get it. I was also pissed off that I didn't get to see Megan naked because ithe rating also provides nudity too. It wasn't in there either. You can just tell Megan is naked in some scenes like when she was going for swim. This film would've been so much better if it went with the raiting but sadly didn't happen. Seriously what do you think fans of the horror genre & Megan come to see. They could give a crap about the storyline & everything else. When people go into see this film with high expectations witnessing the r-rating they are expecting to get those things. It kills me everytime I go into see something & doesn't happen for me like this one did. Atleast it had some blood/gore, Megan, & other talented actors. I was real impressed with everyones acting especially Megan's.



Megan Fox has came a long ways from the bad lines that were given to her in the Transformers's movies. In this one she has something to work with & she does a exceptional job with her character. She pretty much carried this film on her own without problems. I was really surprised by her performance that was given. It made me want to see more of her in films known to her acting ability. I'm not going to lie, at first I didn't think she could act to save her life. Megan was only good on screen for her looks but after seeing her in this, i can tell that she was made to be a star. I think she is going to have a big career in the acting business. Just hope she keeps up the hard work & never lets up. I love you Megan.

The next best one is Amanda Seyfried which played Fox's best nerdy friend NEedy. Amanda made Needy her own by going with the nerd look & acting like one. Amanda was very strong with that I think suited her very well. Amanda is such a pretty girl but not even close to Megan's level. Overall, it was good to see her on screen again. Hope she stars in more to see what else she can achieve.

Overall, Jennifer's Body is worth a look if your bored. It's real enjoyable good time but only for a rental. I wouldn't recommend to own this unless your a Megan Fox fan. It seems like this movie was only mean't to see for her new profound acting skills. Jennifer's Body stays alright with the genre but don't expect much. Jennifer's Body is a classy teen horror show that will disappoint horror fans but comedy & Megan Fox will like.

Sorority Row brings a new gerneration of horror slasher films back to greater lengths. Sorority Row telle the story of sorority sisters of theta pi who pull a prank on a boy making it look like he actually killed one of their sisters. Things turn bad for everyone when the boy ends up giving the sister a proper burial by putting a stake right through her heart. When that happens, the boy realizes that the sister wasn't really dead. All the sorority sisters begin to freak out of what the boy did. From there, everyone is responsible for the sister's death. All of them decide to make a pack to keep this secret. Years later, the sorority sisters all graduated thinking that their going to live the best life. They all plan a graduation party at the sorority house for a fun time. Moments later, all the sorority sisters get a message on their phone telling them that someone witnessed their sister's death. Now, the sorority sisters are in jeaporady as they are hunted down one by one by a strange weilding psychotic killer who will stop at nothing till they all pay for what they did.

Sorority Row was a good slasher flick full of suspensful thrills. The story was similar to I know what you did last summer movies about killing someone, keeping a secret & then haunted by a killer afterwards. I liked this one so much more though. I think it's mostly because it was so entertaining & kept you on the edge of you seat to see who the killer was going to kill first. Unlike every other slasher movie out there that drags, this one doesn't for a minute. From the start, you know exactly what your in for. I was really impressed with the bloody kills it had. Al of them were unique & bring back memories to the old slasher's of the 80's. So that was a shock to me. This film provides alot of sexual situations involving nudity. I think they could've toned it down some but wasn't too bad as it could've been. Their were moments where I thought I was watching a porno but it stayed true to the horror genre. I was really shocked by some of the performances. I didn't know any of them besides the legendary Carrie Fisher.



It's pretty obciously that Carrie stole the show. It was good to see her back in action only this time with shotgun shooting some rounds at the killer. I loved the line that she said that went like this "you think i'm afraid of you, i'm runover in a house with 50 crazy bitches" It went something like that. It was just good to see her on screen again with another strong performance as always.

The sister I liked more than any of them was Leah Pipes who portrayed the sexy & beautiful Jessica. Man, she is so freaking hot. I think her acting was good enough even though i'm not familiar with her. There were some scenes where she was funny & some where she was just a bitch which I liked. Leah is one that you can love & hate at the same time. I thought it was cool how she grabbed an axe showing that she wasn't afraid to fight the killer. Leah is one brave chick in this flick. I would like to see her in more roles like this one or with a different genre. As long as she's in it, i'll love her watching her either way.

All the other actresses were good too but not as great as those two I talked about above. Everyone else you really don't care about because their's nothing really to like about them. Overall, I'd say Sorority Row is a slasher everyone needs to see on the big screen or when it comes to dvd. It's a film that you'll love or hate. For me, I loved it all the way. It's the best slasher I've seen in years. It really had my heart pumping for more. So take my advice & see this. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Sorority Row is one hell of horror/suspense/thriller thats not for the faint of heart just bloody good fun that will give you scares, shocks, blood, gore, sex, & hot chicks.

Nutty Professor II: The Klumps

Flixster - Share Movies

The Klumps is a funny comedy sequel from the 95 The Nutty Professor. The last time, Sherman Klump (Eddie Murphy) wanted to make hisself look thinner by transforming hisself into Buddy. Sherman didn't like Buddy taking over. Sherman realized that he's happy the way he is. in the Klumps, Sherman finds a woman named Denise (Janet Jackson) who he's attracted too. Sherman & Denise fall madly in love & decide to push a step into marriage. There's only one problem that infereres with Sherman life which is Buddy Love. With Buddy by Shermans side, Sherman can't live with Denise in one peace. Later on, Sherman does something to get rid of Buddy but that doesn't mean Buddy is officially gone for good. Somehow as Sherman was experimenting on hisself, Buddy's DNA landed on dogs hair. Now, Buddy is fully hisself again but without Sherman. Days later, Sherman starts acting really dumb. Finally, he notices the reason he's not intelligent as he use to be is because he doesn't have buddy with him. Now, Sherman must find Buddy & connect with him before he looses his intelligence for good.

For me, the Klumps was funny but not as good as the first. I thought the first one was epic that was full of laughter. The Klumps was like a stupid kind of funny. Like most of it was really disgusting in parts & some had me laughing very hard. Eddie Murphy is the same as the first but makes a complete ass of hisself of the way he acts. The performances were alright. Good to see Janet Jackson take on Denise. I thought she was the only one that really stood out with her acting & looks. Everyone else was ok beisides Eddie. Overall, if it wasn't for all the over the top sexual references I would've gave this 4 stars but for wat it was, I give it just 3 for beng a decent comedy.

Smokin' Aces
Smokin' Aces(2007)







Smokn' Aces features an all star cast in this action/crime/drama/thriller about assassins who are hired by a mom boss named Sparazza to put a hit on a magician named Buddy "Ace" Israel (Jeremy Piven). Israel gets taken into protective custody where's he's being held in a hotel penthouse. In the mean time, two FBI Agents (Ray Liota) & (Ryan Reynolds) rush to get to Ace before the hitmen do. When everyone collide's at the hotel, they start rounding up amonition to go at it in a showdown where anyone will be lucky enough to survive.

Smokin' Aces is one of the most entertaining crime movie's I've ever seen. I wasnt expecting the story that I got but It was very interesting nonetheless. I thought the story took a while to get anywhere but I understood that everything had to be set up by getting to know the characters & such. Even though moved slow, the plot kept me engaged & interested to see what would happen next. When the action takes place its a brutal, gritty & bloody mess. This film also comes off with alot of comedy that made me laugh. I thought the cast was exceptional with their character.

The one I was very suprised from alicia keys. Alicia played a great bad*** sexy assassin, Geogia Skyes. Alicia kicked butt against everyone. I really didn't like the fact that she played a lesbian because I could never see her that way especially the way she was acting towards her girlfriend. I think Alicia needs to star in more movies like this one. Alicia made it really fun to watch. She also is very hot. I just loved her in this. Hope to see more of her. I think she needs to have two careers instead of one.



The second actor who took me by surprise was Ryan Reynolds. Man, he knows how to carry a role. Ryan really showed me how good of an actor he really is by using emotion. Ryan did what he had to do with his part & he succeeded them. Ryan has come along ways to a ok actor to one of the greatest in my book. Hope he keeps it up because I think he's going to be big one of these days.

Jeremy Piven is one of those next. I remember seeing him in comedies & never once thought that he would pull off something like this. All I have to say is well done. Jeremy really entertained me by watching him act in this. He did a great job with his character showing off his majacian skills & putting off some emotional moments. Jeremy can actually act & didn't think it was possibl;e till he took this role. As far as I can see, Jeremy can pretty much play any character he wants. Can't wait to see what serious role he takes on next.

I thought the tremor brothers played by Chris Pine & Kevin Durand were psychotic. I tell ya, once their mind is on something they go for it. Their as mean as it gets when it comes to assasinations. They think of the most brutal ways to kill someone like their chainsaws & machete's. I really enjoyed watching them on screen. Their one of the reasons why this movie was entertaining.

When you watch this movie, just remember its not an all out action movie. It's an crime/drama filled with suspensful moments with some action involving brutal bloody violence thrown in. So if thats not your cup of tea then stay away. Overall, Smokin' Aces is a very cool entertaining hitman movie with alot of twists & turns.

A must say that I really enjoyed every minute of this film. This is what more suspense/thrillers should be like. One that keeps you interested with a good pace building up suspense one step at a time, good character development, beautiful scenery, good hardcore action, & most importantly great acting from the cast. As soon as you think you know the big twist, you don't. It gives clues throughout who the killer might be as the movie flows but it's hard to figure it out right away. Unlike other suspense movies where they give away the twist at the very end, they give it half way through in this one. When the twist is revealed its all heart pounding action with intense graphic brutality. The action sequence towards the end was the most explosive finale I've seen filled with shootings & stabbings that lasts around 20 minutes or so. The climax alone will put a big smile on any action freak's face. Thought the ending had plenty of action for a film like this. When going to see this, I thought this movie was going to be very different than what it was but it still came out great. The characters make you think they are the killers the way they try to trick you & all. The film achieved exactly what it was set out to do & it tuned out great. A Perfect Getaway is one of the best movies I've seen all summer long. What I thought was more enjoyable about this movie was the way the cinematography looked. I thought it was the perfect place to shoot this film. What made the look of the movie that much greater was the wonderful music. The music makes this film feel alive & amazing in the summer time. The next thing that I thought made this film suceed was top notch performances by the cast.



The one I think did the best out of the lot was the magnificent Timothy Olyphant. Man, he was so awesome as Nick the way you knows how to hunt. Timothy made the movie that much more exciting to watch with his interesting character. He was funny, intelligent, & most of all hard to kill. You'll see what I mean when you watch this. Timothy is a great actor & one of the best in my book.



The second that did a really good job along Timothy was Steve Zahn. Never in my life have I seen him take on a serious role other than Joy Ride. This dude was astonishing & knows exactly how to carry a role. I thought he did a good job playing the frightened husband around the other couples. I didn't think he would pull of his role with this movie but I can tell you now that I can defenitly see him taking on another serious role just like I did in this one. Steve is also one of the greatest achievers in the acting business as well.

Next is the sexy Kiele Sanchez. When going to see this I have never heard of her before but coming out I was very satisfied with her performance. She played it out all the way & did a very good job coming out clean. I loved the way she showed emotion for Timothy. I defenitly could see them as a couple. Thats exactly what she made it look like with him. Right now, I'm a big fan of hers & hope to see her in films like this or others where she shows lots & lots of emotion, being scared, & caring loving person.



Mila Jovovich is another awesome actress that I thought did good. For me, she just can't get enough of action which is a good thing. This one however wasn't all action where she had to do something different for a change. In this one she had to be serious & also have fun with it & she did good. I was so amazed how much her acting skills have increased. I thought that she could only star in mindless action movies but now I know that she can do anything she puts her mind too. Can't wait to see what she takes on next.



Chris Hemsworth who played Kale & his girlfriend Cleo played by Marley Shelton didn't ahve much screen time but both were worthy while they were on. I also could defenitly see them take on more roles like this. I'm not to fond of Chris but I think he has star power & look forward to seeing what he's able to do as an actor. Marley Shelton who was in Robert Rodriqueze's Planet Terror was very good being mysterious beside of Chris. I could hardly see her in this but she did your thing & suceeded with her part. Though both of them looked good together as a couple just like every other couple on screen.

Overall, A Perfect Getaway was the perfect summer treat. I'm sure you ever goes & sees it will feel the say I do about it. To me, this wasn't necessary a horror film. Is was more than an adventure/thriller more than anything else. I liked how it provided all the elements like drama, suspense, thrills, little bit of horror & action to satisfy a great summer experience. This is defenitly one checking out if your into all those things I mentioned. I went to see this alone & loved it but I think if I saw with friends I would love it even more. So do yourselves a favor & go see this fun film with exciting thrills & mindblending suspense, & loads of action in the climax. A Perfect Getaway is one of the best movie's of the summer.

The Dark Knight



Batman/Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is back & better than ever in The Dark Knight. This time Batman has to face his true & worst enemy of all time, the Joker (Heath Ledger). Batman doesn't know what he's in for this time around. The Joker causes more chaos for Batman than any villain has before. The only way that the Joker will stop causing destruction for Gotham City is getting his hands on the mayor of Gotham City Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart). Now, Batman has to do what he does best & that is using his high tech skills & gadgets to take down the Joker & sabotage his evil plan.

The Dark Knight is truely an amazing picture. It was enjoyable & entertaining throughtout. It holds your attention till the very end. Everyone lights up on screen. My favorite Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, & Aaron Eckhart who did a super b job with their roles.

Christian Bale was at the top of his game. He is the biggest A-list actor right now & seems to live on as one. Everytime he appears on screen I get so excited to see what he's made of. Christian still proves that he's one of the biggest actors in history that still lives on today.

No words can descibe how amazing Heath Ledger was as the Joker. Heath was just out of this world showing us that he can be another person without showing his real face. I thought it was his best performance ever. He played the Joker full of laughs with powerful acting. I thought he stole the movie. I mean he's basically what everyone wanted to see this movie in the first place. Even though, I was never into watching Heath on screen this movie changed my mind on that. It was so sad of the tragic death about him but he will always be rememberd as one of the well gifted actors ever. Heath Ledger will never be forgotten. This movie just made him the biggest star of our time. Two very big thumbs up for him portraying as the Joker.

Aaron Eckhart was the next best one out of the bunch. When he sets his mind on something, he shows the audience, exactly waht he can do with it. He's probably the few with talented acting skills thats come long way in our lifetime. Aaron was vicious criminal as Two-Face. Man, he looked so dark & played a good villian half of the time. Aaron needs to keep starring in more roles because I would like to see what he takes on next. Aaron's on his way to the top & beyond.

Maggie Gyllenheal is the last that I thought stood out. Maggie has turned into a great actress & gorgeous woman throughout the years. She looks better & better as she's on screen. She sure knows how to turn someone on by her wonderful personality & beauty. Hope to see her take on more roles in the future.

This film had plenty of action, drama, & flat out suspense which makes it worth watching over & over again, its that great yall. So who ever hasn't seen this movie, go & grab you a copy on DVD or Bluray. i'm sure yall all will have a great time watching just as I did. Its defenitly a masterpiece with great acting & writing. So see it & enjoy, you wont regret it. The Dark Knight is the best movie of 2008 & batman yet..

Harvey Dent: You either die a hero or live enough to see youeself become the villian.

Hitman
Hitman(2007)





Hitman is based on the best selling action videogame about a hitman assassin known as Agent 47 (Timothy Olyphant) who finds out that he's been betrayed by his own company who wants him dead. Agent 47 is also being hunted by an Interpol agent (Dougray Scott) who wants to bring him in. Now Agent 47 must clear his name by doing whatever it takes to get his revenge. As Agent 47 is being hunted, he hooks up with a russian named Nadia (Olga Kurylenko) who helps him along the way with his mission. The Hitman will make sure that the evil cooperation & whoever else was in on wanting him dead get what they deserve as he uses his highly trained assasination skills against them.

Hitman was a great wall to wall action movie. I loved the gunfights & explosions that were in it. They were nonstop & didn't let up for a second. They picked a good actor to play the part as the Hitman. If they make a sequel, I think they should stick with Timothy Olyphant because he did great as Agent 47. I don't know who else could play the Hitman. I think probably Jason Statham could but he needs to learn english before he does. I still thinks he has the experience because he is all about kicking but i'm still sticking with Timothy Olyphant. Hope he's in the next one. I hate it when they change actors for characters in a movie. I just messes up sequels. Overall Hitman was a great action movie that I would just watch over & over again. It kept me entertained from the begining till the very end. I had a litt probably with the acting from these russians but they wern't too bad I didnt think. I'm sure they could do better but they were still okay for me. So far this is the best video game addaption ever made. When I watched it, I felt like I was playing the game. It was so cool. in the end, I recommend this movie to everyone who loves action-packed movies. Its a must see for all action junkies.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day





Terminator 2: Judgement Day is a sequel that continues with the war against humans & machines. This time a new cyborg called the T-1000 (Robert Patrick) thats much more advanced is sent from the future to kill the leader of the human race John Conner (Edward Furlong). John is in terrible danger till another cyborg (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is sent to protect John & make sure he survives to lead the resistance. Terminator 2 Judgement Day starts off with an opening action sequence & keeps continuing till the finale. The action is intense, violent & visualizing. I thought the new terminator was very cool using all his shape shifting pattern to create weapons to kill John & everything in his path. Arnold is back & better as he's ever been. He kicks more butt in this one by using skills he didn't use in the last one like using more weapons, causing more destruction & mayhem. Theres alot of bad language thats used from everyone except for the machines. The acting is great from everyone. Edward who plays John shows that he has a big future awaiting him. He's very talented actor who brings everything he has to the table. Linda Hamilton who plays Johns mother is amazing actress just she always is. There's no suprise about Arnold. He always makes a good appearence in all his movies. Robert Patrick was good as the T2 robot. He was very vicious & intriguing. I thought he played a cool bad robot. Overall, I recommend T2 to all fans of the trillogy & action fans as well. T2 is one of the best action pictures of all time.

HASTA LA VISTA BABY!

Max Payne
Max Payne(2008)

Max Payne is a very cool revenge action flick based on video game about a cop (Mark Wahlberg) who is working on a cold case bout his families murder. Out for revenge, Max must search through the streets of New York City looking for clues that revolves around the murder of his family. During Max's investigation, he runs into a russian gangster named Mona Sax (Mila Kunis) who is also out for vengence for the death of her sister, Natasha (Olga Kurylenko). Now Max & Mona are on a quest to find & hunt down the ones who connect with the loss of their loved ones in a battle to the death.

I didnt really know how this movie was going to turn out but when i was finished watching it, I came out satified. I was so amazed how everything turned out in this movie. As i was watching the first half of the movie, I thought it started off a little slow but then began to pick up towards the 2nd half which made the movie good all together. The story thats in this movie is so much different than the one that is in the game but I still liked it anyway. I liked the way the director (John Moore) of this movie changed the script & made it his own. John made this addaptation interesting & one to follow well. The movie did stay true to the game by having very dark atmospheric scenery in the background which I was very impressed with. It had alot of nonstop action including gun battles & slow motion sequences when they were shown. I just wish this one had more shooting slo-mo sequences like the game did which was very disppointing. The visual effects during the action scenes were so awesome to watch. They were very loud & noisy. It didnt have action throughout but it had enough to keep you on the edge of your seat that were really intense. I guess thats why the director didn't want anymore than what was in this movie because they were so violent for a PG-13 rating. It was a very hard PG-13 with brutal violence, little amount of blood & brief strong language. The acting was fantastic from almost everyone. Mark Wahlberg did an oustanding job as max payne busting peoples heads & taking them out with heavy automatic weapons. Mila Kunis delieverd good as Mona Sax with a big machine gun by her side. Even though she had a small part, I thought she was one of the strongest actors in this movie who I was very suprised with. I was very impressed with Ludacris's acting as Jim Bravara. I thought he jumped Max's butt pretty good as the Internal Affairs Detective. He is probably one of the few rappers who has transferred into a good actor. Everyone else was decent but not as good as those three were. By the way, if you watch this movie, be sure to stay after the credits. Their is an alternate ending. I'm not going to spoil it for ya. Your just going to have to see it for yourself. Overall this movie is the best video game movie to date I think. Hoping the second one they make is even better. Not bad for the first Max Payne. I just hope the second one provides more action than story so it will be more true to the game & fans can enjoy it even more. I recommend this movie for hardcore Max Payne & action fans. You will definitely get your money's worth watching it if thats what you are. Max Payne is a very hardcore action/mystery with plenty of surprises & entertainment.

Salvation opens up with a bang & never lets up the whole 2 hours. It was a heartpounding action/adventure that was entertaining all the way through that stayed true to the franchise. I think this one is the best out of trilogy because it had alot going for it like better storyline, action & visual effects. Their's quite a number of great action scenes involving gun battles & explosions in Salvation.



One of my favorites is where Marcus & Kyle are running from the harvester & motorcycle terminators. That was a long intense chase sequence.

The second fav part is at the very end where Connor comes face to face with a lookalike of Arnold Schwarzenegger & Marcus putting up a fight with the T-800 that reminded me of T2 when Arnold was facing the T-1000.

Salvation is also quite violent. In some scenes you see blood & brutal shots of the machines killing humans. I thought the terminators in this one looked darker than the previous ones. Their were alot of new machines in this one that I found to be cool.

First, was the T-600 that was the first cyborg to appear upon screen. They were locked & loaded with heavy machine guns that shoot in a blink of an eye.

Second, is the T-800 that are the newley develped cyborg by skynet that are much stronger & harder to kill than any other machine.



Third, The Harvester that is a big mechanical robot thats a lookalike of a transformer that has a cannon thats attached to its back to target to blow things up with.



Fourth, the machines that are called the Moto-terminators that are the Harvesters defense incase it can't catch up. They have cannons strapped on the side of them that they target with & destroy without warning.



Last but not least, the hydrobot that surfaces around water & attacks we don't expect it.

I was really impressed with the acting. Christian Bale, my favorite of them all is no surprise. He's just one of the greatest actors ever that brought John Connor to life. I tell ya, Christian can play anything once he sets his mind to it. Christian did well with the action scenes fighting the terminators. Looks like he did his own stunts which is also not a shocker because he did it in the Dark Knight while playing Batman. Hope Christian ends up coming back for the sequel for the franchise. I don't think anybody else could play the part of John Connor only Christian. Every movie that Christian stars in he just ceases to amaze me with his talents.

Second best actor in this film was Sam Worthington's performance as Marcus. Sam did an outstanding job while playing his part. As I was watching Sam on screen, he looked like he put his heart & soul into his character. I think he's going to have a big future in the acting business one day. Hope to see him take on more roles.

Third best actor was Anton Yelchin who played Kyle Reese. Man, from seeing him in Alpha Dog, he really improved on his acting. Their were some scenes in the movie he stole. Anton's on his way to being a big actor hisself. Way to go!!!

Fourth is the beautiful Moon Bloodgood who took on Blair Williams. When I saw Moon in Street Fighter, I thought she was just an ok actress. When I saw her in this one, man she blew her performance from Street Fighter out of the water. I was saying to myself once she hit on screen, that girl can act all the way & she did throughout. I've never been so surprised by my life by acting in a movie. Moon is on her way to the top & beyond.



Last actor that I was utterly surprised by was rapper Common who portrayed Barnes. I must say I had very low expectations on his acting since some of his other roles I've witnessed. When he poped up in Salvation, Woah, talented actor. I tell ya, first rapper that took a movie seriously & didn't mess up. Common made his character believable & one that everyone would cheer for. I think Common needs to switch from rapping to acting. Acting is where he belongs & i'm sure everyone will agree with me on that.

Their were more good actors in this film like Bryce Dallas Howard who was Kate. I have to day that I didn't really get into her character much because she wasn't that intresting to me. If she had better character develpment my perspective would change.

MovieWeb - Movie Photos, Videos & More

Last but not least their's Michael Ironside that I didnt really care for but he was still good nonetheless.

Overall, this is a start of a new franchise all thanks to the brillant director McG who put his brain & heart to work in this amazing piece of cinema entertainment. Salvation is the first of its kind that I'm a assuming will be huge summer blockbuster & very big at the box-offce. If your fan of terminator you'll defenitly love this one. It doesn't disappoint for a minute. If your not a fan still go see this. After watching this one, I promise you will become one. Terminator Salvation is an all out enjoyable action-packed scifi entertainer filled with heart beating suspense, electryfying thrills, & amazing special effects.

John Connor: If we stay the course, we are dead, we are all dead.

Marcus Wright: I'm the only hope you have.

Kyle Reese: Come with me if you want to live.

The actor that you realy need to watch is Mark Wahlberg. This is his best role he's took on in his career. I was shocked of how good he puled off his character. The character he played makes you think that he would actually be a sniper marine in real life of how he talks explains about his weapon & uses it. I could defenitly picture him as a marine. I tell ya, Mark made one heck of an action hero in this one. Mark is like Rambo in everyway. This movie alone made Mark Wahlberg a big action star. I can't wait to see what action role he takes on next. So pumped up for that. Hope he keeps the talented acting & stays badass.

The second person I liked in this film was Mark's best friend girlfriend, Kate Mara. She is one incredible upcoming actress. The chemistry between her & Mark was truely believible & outstanding. I think Kate is very beautiful & wonderful actress. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, she's very good with a gun so watch out as you can see above. Hope to see mroe of her in films. So far she's one of the greatest upcoming young actresses. Hope she keeps up the good work.

Third, is Danny Glover who played the Colonel. It's been a while since Danny had took on a role & I can understand he struggle's in some scenes but he comes out clean just the same. Danny still is one of the best actors that ever lived. He makes you keep watching him by whatever he pulls up on screen. Some people will think that he's a little different but he still has the acting in him. Danny will always will be one of my favorite's of all time. He never looses his touch or fustrates on what he's doing in a film. He stays with it & keeps it going till he's finished & he succeeds.

Fourth, is the young & talented Michael Pena. That dude takes his roles very well & makes his character so believible you couldn't imagine. He's right up there with the upcoming young intelligent actors around. Michael shows us how smart & how far he's willing to go to impress you ever watches him on screen. I liked how he joined Mark taking down the bad guys & how he was right by his side all the way through. I thought they made a pretty good team. Michael is one of the greats today.

Lastly but certainly not least is the beautiful Rhona Mitra. She also has a good role in this one as she works with helping Michael Pena's character. I just love watching this woman act with her wonderful talents over the years. Every role she takes one, she ceases to impress me everytime i see her. Rhona is so fine if I was her age I would defenitly date her. She has the most finest bod & legs out of any actress that I've seen. Gosh, just would love to meet her one of these days. Not because she's so gorgeous & all but her acting ability. Can't wait to see what she stars in next.

As for all the actors in this movie I didn't really care for because they had small roles & didn't even get into them that much.

Shooter is my #4 movie of all time now. It's mainly because it has a great storyline, great amount of action, & suspense throughout. By far this is Mark Wahlberg's best & action movie to date. I just love watching this movie over & over again. I'll never get tired of it. It will remain one of my greats. Shooter will always be a big movie in my dvd collection that will never get old to watch. Shooter is without a doubt a unforgettable action film that will always be remembered.

Now, Jon & Meg must protect the cops son by going in an all out war with the highly trained replacement killers.

The Replacement Killers is a top notch explosive action film. This movie is very entertaining & fast paced. Chow Yun Fat & Mira Sorvino at their best being the badasses that stole the show. Them alone made a great team as the gunslingers. There are alot of shootouts from start to finish that are balls off the wall full of enjoyable. Overall, I recommend this movie for hard boiled action & Chow Yun Fat/Mira Sorvino fans. Two Thumbs Very High Up for this stylish exciting action picture thats the best of its kind.

Spidey is back in this sequel for another action-packed adventure. In this one, Spiderman/Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) has to face a new breed of villian called Dr. Octopus/Octavius (Alfred Molina) thats his biggest challenge yet. Other than that, Peter comes to the point where he doesn't want to be a masked hero anymore, only hisself. Things get bad for Parker when Octavius takes the love of his life, Mary Jane Watson (Kirsten Dunst) & when his best friend Harry Osbourne (James Franco) finds out that he killed his father Norman (Williem Dafoe). Now, Peter must reach deep down & find out what he really stands for before he ends up loosing everything that he has.

Spiderman 2 is a standout sequel from the first. It has everything that you would want for a sequel that includes more story, action, romance & visual effects. This one is also very entertaining where you never get bored while watching. I really enjoyed this motion action picture. I only have one complaint about this film & that was the over the top romance. I thought it just provided way to much for a superhero movie. I think they could've toned some of that down. I guess the Sam Raimi wanted to get that out of the way to set up for the third to have more action. Overall, Spiderman 2 is a very good superhero film that needs to be seen if your a fan of the original. Spiderman 2 is fantastic sequel thats big on effects that are amazing, a story that keeps you interested throughout, likeable characters, & mindblowing action that never stops till the final conclusion.

Killshot is a pulse pounder of a thriller about a couple, Wayne Colson (Thomas Jane) & Carmen Colson (Diane Lane) who witnesses an incident in which Carmen's husband using self'defense against an indian mafia hitman who goes by Blackbird (Mickey Rourke) & his uprising rival killer named Ritchie (Joseph Gordon Levitt). The Colsons are in mortal danger now as the two professional killers hunt them down. When the killers find the Colson's for the first time. they use excessive violence against them. The Colson's then get away from the killers for the time being. Now, the Colson's want to get in a Witness Protection Program where they get new identities so the killers want find them. In some way, the killers end up finding the Colson's again. This time The Colson's are tired of running away. They take matters in their own hands by defending theirselves with heavy fire power to take out the killers & let them know that they messed with the wrong people.

Killshot is a decent thriller. I was expecting a whole different version from this movie but all I got was not too bad. What makes this movie not being terrible is the acting, some decent action, & entertainment. I enjoyed every second of this film. I expecting a whole lot more though like shootouts, chase scenes & suspense. When the action came it was very intense as guns blaze through a grocery store, bank, & around a house. The action sequences were short but very well-executed & enjoyable to watch. Mickey Rourke was brillant as the indian hitman. He was very gritty & psychotic. Thomas Jane was pretty good. Not my favorite of the bunch but I've seen better from him. The beautiful Diane Lane gives a knockout performance as proably one of the best in the cast. She's very emotional as she gets freaked out by the killers. The one that didn't really impress me all that much was the insanely idiotic Joseph Gordon Levitt. He was acting as a big tough guy as he hunts down the couple. He just goes off the wall with a crazy over the top performance. He still wasn't bad but could've done a whole lot better like taking the movie more seriously then just having fun with it. Rosario Dawson didn't play much but she made a good appearence. In the end, not bad thriller but not very good either. It's defenitly worth a watch nonetheless. Killshot is a entertaining pumping action thrill ride with decent acting & writing.

Wovlerine is a great action-packed adrenaline rush of a film. It's so fast paced that's very entertaining. It held my attention throughout with the interesting plot & explosive nonstop action sequences. The special effects were beyond amazing. They were mindblowing of something I've never witnessed before. Hugh Jackman does a great job as Wolverine as he always does. No one could match the character of wolverine except him. Liev Schreiber who played Vicktor aka Sabertooth was very good with his role. The only thing I din't get is if he's called Sabertooth, how come no one mention his name towards him in here? I didn't get it but the movie is still great. I thought this Sabertooth was cooler looking than the one in the first X-MEN. Liev made a believable Sabertooth that was very ferocious & evil. Danny Huron played well as the evil experimenter. Ryan Reynolds was cool & funny as Deadpool even thought he was briefly shown. Taylor Kitsch played the awesome Gambit. He's such a cool character that's one of my favorite mutants along with Wolverine. Everyone else did a good job portraying their characters too. This movie is just flat out fast, fun, exciting, & watchable thorughout. I didn't get boring one mintue watching this flick. It has it all for a great action movie. What made this movie that more entertaining was the funny lines. Overall, Wolverine is a movie thatsa must see for all action/x-men fans. Wolverine is the best X-MEN yet & probably will ever be. Wolverine is an exciting action/sci/fi adrenaline pumping heart pounder with spectacular special effects, outstanding acting, shocking suspense & a heavy class of full blown entertainment.

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li is a high flying kick action packed adventure based on video game about a a girl named Chun Li (Kristen Kreuk) who trains to be a warrior by her fathers teachings. One night, bad guys break into their house & start beating up her father & end up kidnapping him by orders of an evil power man who goes by the name of Bison, (Neal Mcdonough). After Bison takes Chun Li's father away from her, she plots revenge against Bison & make sures that he gets what he deserves. On Chun Li's quest for vengence, she goes to Hong Kong & finds a masterful fighter named Gen (Robin Shou) who teaches her new fighting skills & shows her how to use a power deep within herself. As Chun Li is fully trained by Gen, she goes out in the dark underworld & ends up fighting for her life against dangerous enemies of Bisons, the big & strong Balrog (Michael Clarke Duncan) & the vicious Vega (Taboo). Along by Chun Li's side, she gets help by Gen & two Interpol cops, Nash (Chris Klein) & Maya (Moon Bloodgood) who help her battle it out against Bison & his army.

Legend of Chun Li was such a good accomplishment over the last Street Fighter movie which was complete trash. I thought this movie was throughly entertaining with a plot thats different from the game but still manages to keep you interested. This movie was packed with top notch nonstop action sequences which included amazing fighting & shootouts. The only thing that was hard for me to watch in this movie was the acting. The only good actor in this film is the lovely Kristen Kruek. First debut movie that she has ever starred in & she was amazing. She is a very beautiful woman & enjoyed watching her on screen. She was just so perfect as Chun Li with strong dialogue. I hope to see her in more movies like this one with attitude & kicks butt. Everyone else was decent except for that Chris Klein dude. Man, he was such an embarassment for the character Nash. He has to be one of the worst actors that I have ever seen on screen. Every line he said was just so farfetched & overacted. It seemed to me that he was trying too hard. This movie was also very violent with some brutal scenes with blood involved which got me very shocked when seen. Theirs a very suprising ending that tells you that theirs going to give a sequel. Overall Street Fighter Legend of Chun Li is better than the original thats more true to the game. I don't know why everyone is dissing this movie. I have to tell you it is one of the better action video game movies thats come around. Street Fighter Legend of Chun Li is an awesome video game movie with explosive stunts that keeps you thrilled & cheering for more.

Transporter 3 is a very good action movie. Jason Statham proves once again why he has what it takes to get the job done. This time Frank Martin (Jason Statham) gets kidnapped by a professional criminal (Robert Knepper) who wants Frank to deliver a package for him. For this mission, the bad guy does something so Frank want leave the job & that is putting a bracelet on Frank thats a trigger to a bomb thats in the car that he sends Frank out in. Along the way Frank runs into danger by gangsters & thugs. When that happens, Frank must use his skills to take out the bad guys by saving the world just like he always does.

This sequel had alot of action that involved lots & lots of hardcore fighting & chase scenes. It was entertaning enough. This one also provided a little bit of romance in it too. Everyone did a good job on screen especially an outstanding performance by Robert Knepper. Thats the best acting i've seen out of him. Hope he keeps starring in more movies as the bad guy. He fits the role perfectly. Overall, this is a good Transporter movie that everybody needs to witness. Its not the best but its really good. I still think the 2nd one is better but the 3rd was very close to it. I thought this one has a better story out of all of them though. I recommend this movie for transporter & jason statham fans.

Predator is a explosive scifi/action hit of the 80's. It has everything you could want in a scifi film. It has nonstop action, fantastic visual effects, heart stopping suspense & gruesome violence. What makes this movie stand out even more is big action star Schwarzenegger. I'm actually glad they picked someone strong enough to go up against something like the Predator. It wouldn't make any sense otherwise & the Predator wouldn't ahve no competition. So I'm glad that worked out with this film. Predator is just a fun time nothing else. Its great entertainment for any action/scifi fan. The acting from everyone was superb. Predator is a landmark in action films & still the biggest one to date. Predator is one awesomely fast-paced scifi action packed blockbuster full of gory violence, mindblowing stunts, engaging character development & glorified enjoyment.

This is one of the best drama crime & gangster moves to date. I enjoyed every minute of this movie. It has an amazing cast who all do very well especially Leonardo Dicaprio. I tell ya Leo might still be young actor but he is one of the youngest rising actors out there. He was brillant just like Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon, Jack Nicolson & the rest of the cast on screen as well.

Now on the run, Joey must find the gun & Oleg before the Mob does & kills them both.

Running Scared was such a entertaining movie throughout. One of Paul Walkers best performances & movies to date. This movie had alot twists & turns throughout. It keeps you guessing till the very end. It had some shootouts from here & there which were really violent & cool to watch. This movie also contains adult language throughout & believe me when I say this. It is probably one of the worst cursing movies ever made. The acting was amazing from everyone including Vera Farmiga who also gives a outstanding performance as Joey's wife. Johnny Messner who was one of Paul Walkers Mob buddies takes this film very seriously, Last but not least, the talented young Cameron Bright who is a very outstanding actor gives a shocking performance as oleg. There are more but those were the three including Paul walker who I thought did the best in this film. Overall I recommend this movie for Paul Walker & crime/gangster fans. This fim is worth watching over & over again. Running Scared is an action/crime adrenaline rush of a movie.

Total Recall is action-packed scifi blockbuster with plenty of thrills. It was one of Arnies best movie to date in the 90's. I still enjoy watching this film. There's know way you could be bored over it. It just keeps you interested & entertaining throughout. There's substanial amounts of blood/gore that was very surprising coming from a genre from this film. The best thing about this one is the standout performances by everyone.

Rachel Ticotin who i'm not very familiar with stood out like a charm as Melina. She kicks butt with Schwarzenegger mostly throughout the entire film. Rachel is also a hott female actress. Rachel defenitly proved by this film that she can show off her skills & looks while she's on screen.

Now, the most beautiful woman & my favorite actress of all time Mrs. Sharon Stone. Man, no woman can top her looks or her acting. She just hits the money by being the sexiest female that ever came on screen. Sharon played a good villian that kicked Arnie's butt at times. She knows how to put a good fight with Rachel to where she wiped the floor with her.I just enjoy watching Sharon now & especilly back then where she was the most gorgeous actress out there. If i was back in her time when she looked like that, I would defenitly run at her. Nothing would stand in my way from getting a piece of that body.

The other cast was not as great as those three were but they were still good nonetheless. Overall, Total Recall is worth the watch. If your an Arnie & action/scifi fan you don't want to miss it. It's one of the best science fiction movie's I've ever seen. Total Recall is an entertaining heart pumping action-packed adrenaline scifi extravanganza that keeps you on the edge full of its nonstop action sequences & velocity thrills.

The Hills Have Eyes





The Hills Haves Eyes is a horror/thriller remake about a science experience gone wrong when a biological weapon was released over the hills of a deserted place & mutated everything in sight. Years later, a family (Ted Levine), (Vinessa Shaw) & (Aaron Stanford) thats on a road trip that ends up going bad when their vehicle hits something causing them to have a blow out. Now, stranded in the deserted desert in the middle of nowhere, the family starts going for help to get back on the road. During their journey, they find out that their not the only ones there. The family witnesses that cannibal mutants are hunting them down to make them pay for what they've done to them in the past. The family must stick together & fight back with no mercy by giving the cannibals what they deserve.

The 'Hills Haves Eyes is fun horror ride from the begining till end. Its a survival movie thats hard to stay alive when someone is looking for ya every step of the way. This movie contains only things that mature audiences should witness. It has over the top graphic violence include blood & gory sequences that is sometimes nastly to watch, foul language & sex related material. I thought this was one of the best horror remakes I've ever seen with a good story & cast. The mutant cannibals are very freaky looking with very nasty habbits. They are very vicious meaning that they will kill in an instant & not think about it. I thought the creature effects were good. The cast was good from everyone.

Flixster - Share Movies

The strongest here I think was Aaron Stanford. Coming from such a young actor that saw from X-MEN 3, he has matured into a young man that looks like a fully grown man in this one with the beard & all. Aaron played his part so good caring for his wife & baby. Aaron shows you by his character that you shouldn't mess with anything that he loves or he'll take you a part & won;t stop till he's done.

Flixster - Share Movies

The next good actor we have is the young talented Dan Bryd who played the son. Man, seeing something thats hard tp believe from him is such a surprise. He almost stole this film with how great his acting turned out. Dan played his character without no remorse. He knew what he was doing all the way & never got lost. He just had fun with his part that was a thrill. I like to see him in more films like this where he takes matters in his own hands & protects everyone around him. He already has star power to be one of the best in future.

Flixster - Share Movies

Emilie De Ravin is the third one. I've never heard of her before but she can act also with a very supportive role as the daughter. She shows us that she doesn't back down when showing emotion. She just keeps going on by risking everything she's set out to do. I thought by Emilie's character was driven that stayed constant throughout.

Flixster - Share Movies

Vinessa Shaw as hott she is she defenitly knows how to put on a good show. It sucks what happened to her but while she was on screen she did a good job as the wife & soon to becoming mother. I wanted to see her fight back which she almost did. Overall, she was excellent for her role.

Logo Designer

Lastly is Ted Levine who was the father. I love watching this dude act. Yoy can tell that he's been around for a long time acting who already had star power. He didn't play much in the movie but showed us how someone head of the family should take care of everyone around him.

In the end, The Hills Haves Eyes is a grotesque enjoyable horrorfest that has plenty offered for it. I recommend this one to anyone who is a fan of horror or cannibals. If your an action fan this one didn't ahve much. It was only made to terrify & thrill no more. So if thats what you want watch this one. It's now boring for a second. It keeps you strapped along for the ride & doesn't stop till the finalie. The Hills Have Eyes is a fun remake horror classic thats full of flat out bloody killings, horrifying moments, disturbing content, emotional vibes & shocking suspense.

The lucky ones die first.

Land of the Dead



George A. Romero brings terror to life as zombies wreck havoc in a small community & figured out how to do everything humans can by using their brain thinking of intelligent ways to kill them in this sequel from the first, Land of the Dead. Land Of The Dead is the most gorriest movie I've ever seen. It had more gore then you could possibly imagine. At times it made me very sick as the zombies did disgusting things to humans & stuff. I don't want to go into it all because its not good to talk about. You just need to see it for yourself. Everyone on screen did a good job. This movie is just a fun zombie film. So check it out. You wont be disappointed one bit if your a horror & zombie fan.

Dawn of the Dead

Dawn of the Dead is a remake version of one of the greatest horror undead classic's ever made in this full blown action/horror survival ride. Dawn of the Dead sets out in a small community town in Wisconsin where a virus has spread all over the world & nobody knows how. Everyone thought everyone died but they ended up coming back to life. They've been turned into flesh eating zombies that start feeding off the ones that is still human. After the undead thinks they have finished their meal they end up finding a pair of survivors located near a mall. Now, the remaining survivors must work together & fight to stay alive & kill many zombies as they can before they become next on the undead's list.

Dawn of the Dead was a spectacular horror show. It has everything you would want in a survival horror film like blood, gore, violence, action, gunfights, explosions, humor, sex & profanity. I think its my #1 populated zombie movie. I thought it had enough of everything to keep you entertained & satisfied throughout. The acting was excellent from the cast.

The strongest actor in this film I think was Sarah Polley. I'm not familiar with her but she did a great job with her character, Ana. She knows how to play a character & show us exactly what she can do to make it fit with her. Sarah is also a very attractive actress. I would like to see her in more movies especially like this one where she fights monsters. She kinda reminded me of Alice on the Resident Evi; films. Overall, she entertained me with her performance.

Next, is our big action hero, Ving Rhames who played the big cop Kenneth. I'm glad they picked him to star in this film because thats what makes it even greater to watch is having a big muscle man fighting zombies & kicking the drap out of them. Ving is very talented & gave us a good show.

Logo Designer

Jake Weber who was Michael is the next good one that i'm not familiar with either. He gave a good performace by being the one who was trying to get everyone of the survivors to work together by staying alive. Jake also kicked the zombies butts in some scenes where he was alone. I didn;t see the suspense coming about him. Overall, Jake did his thing & I was totally shocked by how great he was.



Michael Kelly who played CJ was just awesome in this film. He was always the one backing up the survivors with ammo & dynamite giving the undead a huge explosion right in their face's. I enjoyed his watching him because he had some funny lines to entertain.

Flixster - Share Movies

Lastly but not least is Mekhi Phiefer who was Andre, husband & soon to become father. It really sucks waht happen to him. I didn't really like how that worked out. It did show you how much love he had for his wife & unborn baby. It was very sad about his character & everyone that he loved. Mekhi was good with his part though that I didn't see coming but he ended up succeeding by how good his acting was.

Everyone else was really not important to me. Seemed they were just for show. Those 5 I named are the only ones you should pay attention to the most because their the real stars. Overall, Dawn of the Dead is a rollercoaster ride full of pure horror.fans. Dawn of the Dead is a great horror movie experience thats filled with blood & guts, nonstop action-packed sequences, character development, nail-biting suspense, & superb entertainment.

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

Ancondas is an exciting adventure that leaves you breathless. This one lacked a little bit on the snake attacks. I think it was because it was a bit slow at the first. Thats probably what through the kills off. I don't understand why it wouldn't have more attacks because their was more than one anaconda in this one. I just know that this movie could've been a whole lot better & it would've done this movie justice if it had more snake attacks. I do have to admit that the visual effects are done better by the snakes than the first one. The snakes in this story made since where it explains how they eat the Blood Orchid to increase their size bigger which makes them massive killing machines. I thought that was cool how that worked out. The other one didn't even explain how the snake got big but still like the first better than this one. The acting was ok from the cast.

Johnny Messner is probably the best out of the cast. His acting makes this movie fun where he saves survivors life from a crocodile & snakes.

Morris Chestnut is good in his own way. He's also a very talented actor that I love to watch on screen. Morris has some funny lines. It really sucks that he died because I wanted him to survive. While he was on screen, he stood out as one of the best next to Johnny.

Kadee Strickland was also good showing emotion when she got scared over the snakes. Kadee is hott with a fine bod. I can see her acting in the future with a big career.

Matthew Marsden was kinda annoying wining about getting to the Orchid. He was also a hard*** trying to get everyone to go with him to find the Orchid with a huge bad temper. I just didn't like him in this one because of all that.

Salli Richardson Whitfield was probably the worst out of the bunch. She has such a stuck up with a bad attitude that just got way out of hand. She was good in some scenes but throughtout she was terrible.

Overall, Anacondas is one fun ride from start to finish. Its one to watch once I think or add to your collection if your a fan of snakes or the first. Anacondas has enough scares & thrills to keep you satisfied.

The hunters will become the hunted.

Anaconda was a good frightfest. It has alot of thrilling moments like when the anaconda sneaks up on everyone & strikes. There's just one thing that I didn't like that almost killed this flick & that was how fake the anaconda turned out to be. They just used so much CGI on it which made it totally unbelievible. Other than that, there is a quite amount of action that provides a fun time. The acting was decent from the cast.

The strongest is the beautiful Jennifer Lopez. I think this was her first debut film. She really hit the spotlight for her first film. Jennifer carried her role very well. Jennifer is now one of the best actresses ever & one of my favorites for that matter. Jennifer looked very sexy in this one where she was all wet which made her that much more sexier. I also enjoyed watching her fight the anaconda. I liked to see her in roles like this one where she fights back. Jennifer Lopez is probably the best & sexy actress ever.

Eric Stoltz is the next best one who played Cale. Eric only had about 30 minutes in the film but he gave a surprising performance while he was on screen. Eric's is probably one of the few unpredictable actors who gives you a shock of what he has to offer in a role like this one.

I still can't see Ice Cube as an actor but by this one he changed my mind. I actually think that he's actor now & a very good one at that point. One of the few rappers that can actually act it was defenitly a surprise. Ice had some very funny lines. I loved seeing Ice kick butt. Hope he keeps up the hard work with his acting ability.

Jon Voight was a mean bad*** poacher that was trying to protect the team from the anaconda. Jon also provided a bad attitude towards the team throughout which thought was very rude in some scenes. Jon is also a very good actor which made is character believible just like Jennifer & Ice's.

Kari Wuhrer is a very hott actress that had a short role as one of the team members. Even thought she didn't have much screen time, she showed us some talented acting. She provided emotional & aggressive issues. I liked watching her as well.

Owen Wilson took on a different role than his other films which just provides comedy. This one Owen actually took it seriously which was shocking to see. Owen made his character standout by a mesmerizing performance.

Flixster - Share Movies

The weakest actor was Jonathan Hyde. I've seen him in movies where he has some serious roles but this one he wanted to have too much fun with it which made him go over the top in some scenes. I thought this movie would've been better without him.

Overall, i Anaconda is worth watching over & over again because its so entertaining & the best one yet for that matter. Dont't expect a masterpiece from this film, just watch & enjoy what it has to offer & Jennfer Lopez. Anaconda is a scary adventure horrorfest thats packed with explosive action, & nonstop thrills.

You Got Served is a sport/drama about a breakdancing crew that involves two best friends named David (Omarion) & Elgin (Marques Houston) who takes it to the streets with other crews for money & to show that their the best by earning respect, David & Elgin has the top rated crew which makes them undefeated till get a challenge by another run by a cocky stuck up guy named Wade who thinks that his crew is better than they are. When the crews challenge each other, things go sour when David & Elgin witness that one of the crew members has joined Wade & ends up stealing their moves. David & Elgin's crew ends up loosing by Wade. The next day, David & Elgin heres about a competition called the BIG BOUNCE coming in their area. David & Elgin want this one so bad where it could put them back on track with things. One night, that changes when Elgin gets mugged by someone who stole his stuff that he had to deliver for someone that he works for. Elgin's partner, David was suppose to show up delivering the stuff with him so he would be there to back him up but he never showed up. Elgin ends up in the hospital where he finds out that he has broken fractures saying that he won't be dancing for a while. David hears about Elgin & comes to see about him. When David see's Elgin, Elgin gets mad at David because he wasn't there when he needed him the most. Elgin finds out about David & his sister (Jennifer Freeman) when he was suppose to be with him taking care of business. Elgin begins to be a jerk.over David & his sister. Elgin is so mad with David that he just wants to end his relationship with him. The crew is in bad shape without David & Elgin together. Now, David must find it in his heart to show Elgin how sorry he is & by getting him back with the crew so they can serve Wade's crew off by pulling of new hard edged moves to win the BIG BOUNCE & be the top rated dancing crew they started out with.

You Got Served is an entertaining drama that sends a good message about showing who your true friends are by caring about them & participating in a group together. This movie contained some very cool dance moves that were done by the crews that was real good experience. Their were some I thought looked unrealistic but I've never witnessed it so I wouldn't know. The only thing that I couldn't grasp from this film was the acting. I thought most of the actors had weak points. Omarion was probably the weakest from the cast but since it was his first movie he ever starred in i'll let that one go. I did notice that he was trying in some scenes & their were some where he wasn't trying at all. Marques Houston was the strongest actor I think. He looked like he put his hear & soul into his character by showing emotion by fighting for what he wanted. Jennifer Freemna is a very good actress who played her part well. Jennifer is so hott that just a jot to watch. Steve Harvey played a very serious role as Mr. Rad who was head of the business of street dancing. He was very good with his part also. Megan Good is upcoming actress that show off her actions reall good. I think she has a good career in the future. In the end, You Got Served is defenitly worth the watch. It's not great buts a good fun time. If your into dancing or not he'll still like it either way. You Got Served is satisfying enjoyable moving heartfelt story that is full of sad moments & hard hitting dance moves that are out of this world.

I really enjoyed the heck out of Death race. It opens up with a action-packed scene that never lets up till the very end. It was full with lot & lots of car chases, explosions, & gunfights. I very much like the story as well. I thought it had a good plot for the movie. It was better than I was expecting it to be. When I bought the Unrated DVD, I was even more saisfied with the movie having more action in it.

So who ever hasnt seen this movie yet, go & get yourself a copy of it on DVD or Bluray. Its defenitly worth buying & seeing over & over again.

This movie just takes the cake when it comes to action. I've never seen a bigger & badder action film in my life. Bad Boys 2 is a violent full throttle action packed thrill ride that will keep you glued to your seat till the grand finale.

John Carpenter brings pure horror in this action-packed terrifying rollercoaster ride, Ghosts of Mars. Ghosts of Mars is about a mars patrol team leaded by Commander Helena Braddock (Pam Grier), her second in command, Lt. Melanie Ballard (Natasha Henstridge) & the rest of the team featuring Sgt. Jericho Butler (Jason Statham), Bashira Kincaid (Clea DuVall) who are assigned to bring back a convicted criminal, James 'Desolation' Williams (Ice Cube) to justice. When the team arrives at the location where William's is, they start scoping out the place by looking for him. As the search goes on, the team ends up finding survivors but not Williams. From there, one of the team members who is Jericho, encounters something very unusual when he looks down at a mining operation & see's disturbing things going on with the miners. Jericho starts getting freaked & heads back to the team. Lt. Ballard & the team are still searching for Williams, they finally find him locked up in a holding cell. Ballard & the others don't know why Williams is succure like that. The team suspect that something is very werid going on. Later, Jericho finds Ballard & informs her along with her team what he saw in the mines. Jericho tells them that the Commander is dead & that they need to get Williams & leave now. Ballard & the others don't understand what Jericho is saying to them till they witness it too. Moments later, Ballard & the rest of team begin to realize what Jericho is telling them when they see the pack of strange psychotic miners who they assume are martians now going in insain. The team & the survivors try to hide in places where the martians can't find them. When the their hiding, something unexpected that the team & the others didnt know, is that one of them is possessed somehow. They don't know how but they think that it has something to do with the miners. They end up being right when they kill one of the survivors & a martian gets released & ends up possessing another. Now, the team & the survivors must find away to stay alive by fighting the martians in an all out war with their heavy automatic weapons & anything they can use to defeat them but they have to watch out or they could become one of the ghosts of mars.

Ghosts of Mars is spectacular fun scifi entertainment from start to finish. Its a bloody good horrifying/actioner that features explosive gunfights, explosions, blood, gore & profane language. Another thing I liked about the action scenes is that it had metal music in the background. I thought that was really cool how they added that in. The music brought the action to live. The story is grim, dark & terrifying. It makes you wonder what you would do if you were in the teams & survivors shoes where they have to try to survive without getting possessed by a martian. Thats a scary thought i think. I was actually really impressed with the acting coming from this film. Natasha Henstridge is sexy & good in her role. She knows how to show someone a good time buy watching her act & kick butt. I can't really see Ice Cube as an actor but I tell ya one thing, he can defenitly entertain the audience. Ice also has a mouth on him in this film. Thats what I love about him though. Ice also kicks some serious butt in this film as well. No surprise about how cool Jason Statham is in action films. In this one, he fights just as good as he does in his other ones. It was more exciting watching Jason kick *** than Natasha or Ice becase he has more experience. I'm so glad they picked an action star for such an awesome action movie. It made that much more great. I must say, that Jason's acting was a little weak in this one. He could've done so much better but still not bad. I actually think this one was close to his third movie he's starred in so i'll give him a break. Clea DuVall was good in her role as a officer. She had some scenes where she took matters in your own hands in the action sequences. Overall, I recommend this film to anyone who wants to be entertained & enjoy a mindless popcorn film. Ghosts of Mars is flat out entertaining blast of scifi romp thats full of explosive nonstop action & high octane gorefest.

James Williams: Tide's up. Time to stay alive.
James Williams: COME ON YOU MINDLESS MOTHER FUCKERS!
James Williams: Damn girl! I like you already!

While their training, strange things start to happen when each of the marines start disappearing one by one. The other marines go on a search to look for them but all they find is death awaiting for them by flesh hungry mutated monsters who want them on their menu.

The Hills Have Eyes 2 is more, violent, gross & disgusting this time around. The monsters look more terrifying than before. Theirs alot of gunfights & gore throughout. It buries the first a mile away on the action but storyline & acting sucked. Jessica Stroup & Daniella Alonso were the only two that was decent. Their both hott too. The others were just terrible to watch. The violence is all this movie had going for it. Overall, I recommend this movie to all horror/action/thriller fans. The Hills Have Eyes is a bloody thrill ride that will keep you strapped full of horrifying momments & hardcore gore.

The Hitcher was a fun paced entertaining bloody thrill ride. It was filled with nonstop action & gore throughout. The acting was great from everyone on screen especially from Sean Bean who plays the hitcher. He's the one that made this movie by being a very scary & horrific villian. I thought he was excellent for the part of the hticher. I would love to see him play as a villian more often in movies.

The gorgeous Sophia Bush is a fine actress in her own way. I thought she gave a powerful performance as Grace by seeking vengence against John Ryder.





I don't really know who Zachary Knighton is but I gotta tell ya I enjoyed watching him act. He pretty much gave it everything he had which turned out to be a good character. Zachary might be with the bigs one day. Hope to see him star in more like this one.

Blade (Wesley Snipes) is back for the final battle in this action-packed full throttle sequel. This one begins with a vampire pack searching for Blade worst & darkest enemy ever, Dracula aka Drake (Dominic Purcell). After the vampire clan finds Drake, they take him back with them so he can defeat Blade. One night when Blade is hunting the undead, he realizes that he's been set up by one of the vampires named Danica Talos (Parker Posey). Blade gets caught by the police & taken in for questioning. While Blade is with the cops, Danica comes for Blade by trying to kill him. Moments later, a team of vampire hunters called the Nightstalkers that involves a bad*** named Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds) & the sexy Abigail Whistler (Jessica Biel), Whistler's daughter frees Blade & escapes from Danica & her clan. When Blade & the Nightstalkers escape, they head back to their penthouse to talk to Blade about why Danica was their to kill him. Blade then finds out that his worst enemy, Dracula has been awaken & is going to be unstoppable. Hannibal & Abigail tell Blade that they may know a way to kill Drake & that is by a dart called daystar thats suppose to send Drake back to the underworld & every other vampire in the world. Now, Blade, Hannibal & Abigail must find Drake & fight him & his evil pack by using Daystar so they can finally end the vampire race for good.

Blade Trinity is a goodaction/horror sequel thats very entertaining. Wesley Snipes is good once again as Blade kicking butt as always. He still has the fight in him. In this one, Wesley actually has some comic lines which was cool to see. I always thought that Blade was suppose to be a serious character but I guess their's nothing wrong with having a little comedy thrown in there.

The gothic Danica Talos who was played by Parker Posey was sexy, scary & freaky vampire. There were some scenes in this film where her hair due was ridiculous, just ask Hannibal King. He'll give you all the facts. That still didn't disappoint her performance. Parker was still on target for her character.

Everyone else on screen was good too. This movie did have a number of action sequences throughout. The violence was intense. The only thing I didnt like about ths movie was the dracula story. I thought Dracula was suppose to be a vampire only. It just so happens he turns in a strange looking monster dragon thing. I thought that was kinda corny. Overall, this thrid entry has alot going for it that I recommend for action junkies/horror fans.

This time their taking their son Alex (Freddie Booth) along with them in this action packed/adventure sequel, The Mummy Returns. This one starts off back in centuries ago where a warrior named Mathyus (Dwayne Johnson) & his army are fighting in a war, After the war ends, Mathyus & his army are stranded in the middle of nowhere with nothing to keep theirselves alive. As their walking through the dessert, Mathyus's army dies one by one. Mathyus is the only one left & he begins to suffer till he stops & makes a deal with Anubis to spare his life by giving him his soul to help him to regain his strength.

The Scorpion King's army is indestructible by taking over the land. Anubis comes back & curses Mathyus to serve him for all time.

Years later, Rick & Eve are at a temple looking for the bracelet of Anubis that was on Mathyus arm before he was cursed. When they find it, a pair of thieves that work for the Mummy's mistress Anck Su Namun (Patricia Velasquez) try to take it from them & bring it back to Anck Su Namun so she can give in to Imhotep (Anold Vosloo) when she ressurects him from his grave. Rick & Eve escape with the bracelet away from the thieves & bring it back home with their son.

When the O'Connel's get home, Alex looks into the chest where the bracelet is kept & puts it on where he can't get it off. Meanwhile, Eve's cousin Jonathan (John Hannah) comes home & finds Anck Su Namun & her evil thugs ask about the bracelet.

The Mummy Returns was a entertaining adventure thrill ride of a sequel. It buries the first Mummy in a heart beat by having more action scenes & exciting moments. The movie is not boring for a second. It hold your attention throughout. The action sequences & laughs seem to never stop. They are in your face every step of the way. Brendan Fraser couldn't be better as Rick O'Connel. Brendan is the new adventure action hero since Indiana Jones. Rachel Wiesz is beautiful as ever as Eve. She's very emotional & a strong actress that keeps improving throughout the years. Oded Fehr is remarkable as Ardeth once again. He makes a good action hero as well while fighting in battles. Oded is also a very good actor along with Brendan & Rachel. John Hannah is full of jokes that makes this movie that more fun to watch. Arnold Vosloo plays a good mummy as always. Nobody could ever compare to him. He's just wonderful & powerful actor. The sexy Patricia Valasquez is soo fine.. I enjoy watching her as the next person. Hope to see her in more films where she shows her sexy bod & uses that sexy accent. Dwayne Johnson who was the Scorpion King is great no matter what. He will become a great actor one of these days I can tell from his acting in this one. The Mummy Returns is an exceptional sequel that has every you could want. The Mummy returns is a fun enjoyable adventure thats full of explosive action, spectacular surprises & mindblowing effects.

The most powerful force on earth is about to be unleashed by the two people who should know better.

When they get there, they have the time of their lives partying it up. The only thing they didn't count on is that the island is over run by flesh eating horrifying mutated zombies.

Things get bad when the group realize that their not alone Now, the survivors must fight to stay alive by using automatic weaponary against the undead in a war thats centered around the house of the dead.

House of the Dead was a fair horror game addaptation movie. It had its moments where it was like the game & where it was not. The movie starts off slow but when the action hits, its like a explosion right in your face that doesn't stop. The one thing I liked about the action scenes was how they used matrix style during the gunfights & showed a flash from the house of the dead video game when they shoot the zombies. I thought that was real smart putting all that in for a game type movie. The violence is extremely hardcore & gory throughout. The only thing that i didn't like about this one was the acting & the part where the survivors didn't know how to use weapons but they didn't miss their targets one time. Thought that was kinda messed up about that part. The acting was a complete disappointment, I think it's mostly cause the director Uwe Bowl. Man, that guy can't get nothing right. I mean sure the acting isn't suppose to be good or great in a game movie but come'on it could be atleast decent for the most part. Atleast it had some nice looking chicks in this. Thats always a good thing especially for me. Overall, this movie is one to check out with you are familliar with the game or just like action/horror. House of the Dead is a dark,fun, nonstop action/horror survival ride that's full of explosive gory mayhem.

How do you kill something that's already dead? Any... way... you... can!

When the program starts, a strange person (Terrence Stamp) who owns the seminar to the Yes program asks anyone who is new to this program.

Things go sour when Carl says yes to some things that he shouldn't & ends up affecting him & girlfriends relationship. So Carl must be sure that he's making the right decision about saying yes before he looses everything that he cares for.

Yes Man was somewhat of a good comedy depends the way you look at it. It had some funny moments & stupid ones also. I have to admit the movie did do justice for me but expected a whole lot better than what they gave me. This one was almost too over the top but it was still pretty good decent comedy. This movie was the complete opposite of Liar Liar but i liked that one so much better. Overall, if you like Jim Carrey & Comedies. I recommend you see this. Jim Carrey is still the king of comedians. 3 1/2 stars

One day, as Derek starts his new job, he meets a nice & sexy assistant named Lisa Sheridan (Ali Larter). When Derek meets Lisa they start talking & getting to know each other. As Derek & Lisa are getting to know one another, things start getting very bad for Derek as Lisa starts acting very strange towards him. One night during a Christmas party, Derek & Lisa start dancing with each other. From there, Lisa gets a feeling that Derek is flirting with her. When Lisa believes that, she begins to take advantage over Derek. Derek doesn't like Lisa doing that to him on bit. Lisa doesn't understand why not. Lisa thought that Derek wanted to be with her but she was wrong. As soon as Lisa thinks that, she begins to stalk Derek everyday & night. Soon, Derek's life gets in jeopardy as Lisa tries to ruin his relationship with his wife, Sharon. Now, Derek must put his life on the line to make Sharon believe him before he ends up loosing her & their son for good. Finally, Sharon believes Derek for waht he's telling her. When nobody believes Lisa's side of the story, she goes above the line by trying to get Derek for good. When Lisa does that, Sharon finds out about it & ends up taking matters in her own hands by wanting to take Lisa apart to settle a score in love & war.

Obsessed is a very entertaining thriller. It's one of the best that I've seen in years. It's defenitly the new Fatal Attraction but not as good as that one was. I thought the script was lacking in parts but I still throughly enjoyed it. I also thought it could've been way better but still satisfying nonetheless. The acting was right on target from everyone on screen. Idris Elba was amazing as he stole this film with his incredible acting. He was absolutely belivable with his character. Ali Larter was so sexy & brillant with her role. Ali made a perfect bad girl wrecking everything. Now Beyonce Knowles, all I can say is WOW!. I was very surprised & shocked with her acting. I have to say I had very low hopes on her in the begining. Man, was I wrong. She just proved by this film that she has star power & has a big future waiting for her as an actress. Everyone else played their roles well & just were great as the main three were. Overall, I recommend this movie who wants to see a good entertalning little thriller that will spark up their day. It's defenitly worth checking out. I'm defenitly picking up a copy of it up when it hits DVD. Obsessed is a highly fast-paced entertaning, enjoyable, smart, excellent acted sexy thriller thats full of mindblowing suspense & exciting thrills.

Fighting
Fighting(2009)

Photo Editor

Fighting is an action/sport/drama that takes place in Brooklyn, New York where a young man named Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) who loves to fight for fun. One day, all that fighting gets really big for Shawn when he gets offered a position in a business to brawl in real fights by a man who enjoy's making money named Harvey Boarden (Terence Howard). Shawn accepts Harvey's proposal & starts working with him by fighting against some of the biggest fighters in Brooklyn. Shawn must prove that he has what it takes & show the world that he's the real goods by beating everyone of his opponents by fighting.

Fighting was not what I expected at all. I was expecting to be entertained by watching shawn fight. I kept watching this movie thinking what did I pay to see. This was not a fighting movie at all. It was more like crime/gangster's betting on Shawn. This movie would've been good if they changed the title. The title doesn't even come close by staying true with the plot. It was just so messed up & made me utterly disappointed by this film. I have to admit though, I was very surprised by how well Channing Tatum carried his role. Channing was probably the best actor in this flick. He made somewhat entertaining to watch. If it wasn't for him this movie wouldn't succeed at all. Terence Howard was just plain annoying with that stupid voice of his. I didn't feel like he took his role seriously like Channing did. Seems to me like he just wanted to make this film into a comedy by having funny one liners. Thats not what this movie was supposed to be. Zulay Henao was the second strongest in this film that was worth watching. She is so pretty to look at & watch her act. I don't know much about her but I thought she was good & looking forward to seeing her in more movies. Everyone else I didn't really care about because they wern't important. Overall, if you are looking to see a fighting movie where people just brawl it out, don't watch this one. This is not a fighting movie. It's just a crime/gangster sport drama thats somewhat entertaining in parts. It drags a little throughout but some parts are interested to watch. I have to admit when the fights came, I did get very shocked by how intense they were. They were the most brutal fights I've ever seen in a PG-13 film. So that was very surprising to see even though the fights wern't long enough. Fighting is a high intensity sport/drama thats big on acting by lacks on fighting.

My Girl is full of great entertainment for the whole audience. Its great storytelling with a great cast that gives you a good show. Anna Chlumsky was perfect for her role as the little girl showing emotion throughout her lifestyle. Dan Aykroyd who played the father was loving & caring for her daughter. Dan is absolutely brillant in these kind of roles. How amazing was Jamie Lee Curtis. She's wonderful actress who will be always called one of the greatest. Then we have the talented young Macaulay Culkin. He's always good in his own little way. He shows the audience that he can play any character no matter what. Overall, My Girl is for those who like dramatic family stories. I found it to be entertaining enough to watch over & over again. I'm sure whoever watches this will feel the same way as i do about this wonderful film.

Men in Black is a very enjoyable sequel that has more going for it than the first. Its more fun, entertaning, action-packed, & humorous. Will Smith & Tommy Lee Jones couldn't be better team. They light up this movie with their outstanding acting to keep the audence watching. The beautiful Rosario Dawson she is is very good in her rold thats believable & emotional. Lara Flyn Boyle plays a sexy alien who does a good job portraying her character. Tony Shalhoub that plays Jeebs is funnier as ever as the stupidest alien in this flick. Overall, Men in Black 2 is way better than the first with more laughs to go around.

Crank: High Voltage is brillantly executed action/adventure/comedy that is way better than the first. High Voltage has everything you would want in a movie that includes blood, guns, dark humor, sex, drugs & boobs. This one blows the first one off by a mile by all those things. Basically because its more over the top & fun. I thought this one had a more interesting plot than the original. This movie is so crazy, its awesome. I enjoyed every minute of it. I never was bored for a second. It kept me strapped in watching all the way through. This is my favorite movie ever. It has great story, great direction, great dark comedy, great mindless action sequences & great gratuitious violence. This movie wasn't made for the acting, just the experience & having a good time. I thought the acting was great because their were such insane characters just that fits the movie just right. Jason Statham is what made this movie great. He shows the audience here that he is the biggest action star in history. This is his best movie yet. Mark Neveldine/Brian Taylor who directed this movie are amazing by coming up with ideas for a movie like this. Hope to see more movies made by them in the future. I think their going to be very big one day. By this movie, their my favorite directors of all time. Hope that stays that way. Overall, if you liked the first Crank you'll love this one even more. If you didn't then look somewhere else because this movie takes the cake for the most craziest movie you'll ever see in your life. By the way, stay after the end of the credits. It gives you a hint that their's going to be a next installment to the trilogy. I don't know what kind of idea their going to come up with this time but I'm sure looking forward to it. It's an excellent piece of action cinema experience that I'm hoping will make alot of money at the box-office because it definitely deserves it. Crank: High Voltage is a perfectly charged high octane adrenaline rush full of ridiculous moments, bone crushing action set pieces & spectacular entertainment.

The acting was alright. Kerr Smith, Brendan Fehr & Johnathon Schaech are probably the only ones worth watching here. If it wasn't for them & the entertainment, this movie would've went down bad.

Speed 2 - Cruise Control

Photo Editor Speed 2: Cruise Control is an action sequel to the first Speed. Annie (Sandra Bullock) is back but with a new boyfriend that is also a LAPD cop named Alex (Jason Patric). Things haven't been working out with Annie & Alex which don't obiviously no each other that well. So Alex suprises Annie with tickets to a cruise ship where they can spend more time getting to no one another. When Annie & Alex get on the cruise ship, things go good till a mad man named Gieger (William Dafoe) decides to take over the ship for ransom. Annie, Alex & the crew memebers are in danger as Gieger is speeding up the ship to go faster. Now, Alex & Annie must find away to stop Gieger & his evil plan before the ship goes out of control. Personally, I didn't think Speed 2 was a good sequel from the first. It really didn't have nothing big, smart, & exciting like the first Speed did. This one got a bit boring between parts also. Nothing really satisfied me about this film. The acting was ok but not that good. The only two actors worth watching in this one is Sandra Bullock & Jason Patric. I think they both always good in movies especially Sandra Bullock. I thought Sandra was more hott in this one with her long hair. I liked Jason Patric in this one but he's not even close to Keanu Reeves. Jason was still alright for me as the hero though. I just perfer Jack Traven better. William Dafoe was just plain bad & stupid. He was a complete goofball throughout the whole movie. He was somewhat intelligent but insanely idiotic. I thought Dennis Hopper was 10 times better than he was. Overall, Speed 2 is just a rental I think. Speed 2: Crusie Control is somewhat entertaining survival chase action/thriller that should have you something to look forward to. 2 stars

Theirs only one that can save Kate & that's a cop named Max Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin) who will stop at nothing to protect her. Together, Max & Kate must find away to stay alive by fighting the KGB agents & get to safety. Fair game is a decent entertaining action movie. It has enough action to keep you satisfied. Theirs daring escapes, gunfights, explosions & exciting suspense. Cindy Crawford & Willian Baldwin gives you a pretty good show as you watch them fight off the bad guys. Cindy Crawfor is so fine & a very good actress for her first movie. I wish she starred in more. She would've had a big future in acting I think. William Baldwin is also good in this. He's always brings something to the table with his acting skills. I enjoyed watching them both on screen. Everyone else I didn't really care for. If I did have to say something about the rest of the cast, it would be horrible. So i'm not going to go there. Overall, Fair Game is one to check out if you want t kill some time watching a movie. This one is watchable if you like action, thrills & suspense. Fair Game is a high speed chase full of nonstop action till the very end. 2 1/2 stars

Miguel Ferrer was a believable bad guy who was very serious at times. Karen Duffy played her role very well. Man, she's so sexy & one that I always like to watch.

Wesley doesn't understand what Fox is telling him but when an assassin confronts the two of them, Wesley begins to relaize that Fox's isn't putting him on.

After Wesley gets done training, he starts hunting down Cross & by using his father's super killing skills that requires curving & bending bullets in the most visualizing ways by being the best assassin ever.

Wanted is a entertainng ride from begining till end. It has alot good effects during the action scenes. The action in this movie is breathtaking. Theirs alot of gunfights throughout most of the movie that keeps you satisfied. This defenitly deserved the R-rating for sure because of all the bloody violence & language it had in it. The suspense was kind of predictable & then again it wasn't. It still shocks & suprises you though. The acting from the cast dida good job. James McAvoy who was Wesley shows off his english accent thats very impressive & fun to watch. James also makes a good action hero & comedian. Hope to see him in more movies like this one. Morgan Freeman who played Sloan was amazing as he always is. He shines up the movie like a new penny. Morgan is a well gifted actor. Then we have the sexy Angelina Jolie who was Fox. Man, she's so easy on the eyes. I thought this was one of her best performances. She proves that she still has what it takes to be an actress an action star. Common was good for his junior movie even though he didn't have many lines. I think he'll be big in the acting business one day. Everyone did a good job by making this movie succeed as an action movie. Overall, I did enjoy Wanted for what it was & can't wait for the sequel. Wanted is loaded with action that entertains & keeps you guessing. 3 1/2 stars

Warning, if you cant handle the violence thats in this movie, then you wont enjoy this movie because thats all it really has in it. Also as I was watching it, I noticed it was like Mad Max style which was a cool thing because those movies are awesome and this movie seemed like a remake of it. So that made it even more awesome to watch. Mad Max with a girl as the hero played by Rhona Mitra. She was so fun to watch in this one. Rhona shows what it takes to be a big actress & action star.

Fast & Furious is the best in the series. It's the one we've all have been wating for & it delivers. Action explodes off screen right from the start & keeps going till the end. This one has more intense race sequences than the other 3. I really enjoyed watching the cars race through the whole movie. This movie is just one big race scene that never stops. The cars are more fast & more furious than ever. The action scenes contains chases & shootouts that are real exciting when witnessing. When they come, you get shocked & thrilled. As you watch the drivers race their cars, you feel like your right their with them experiencing their car crashes & mayhem. It's just so unbelivible. The acting has improved by all the coming back actors. I was really impressed how much Vin Diesel's acting improved. I actually think he stole this movie by being the cool dude he is. Vin took it serious by seeking vengence. I enjoyed watching Vin kick butt fighting aganst the bad guys in fist fights & shootous. Paul Walker was great too. Well, he's always great but I think this was his best performance & one I've been waiting to see. Paul came in second in this movie. Paul also kicks butt coming down all on the bad guys & busting their heads. Jordana brewster & Michelle Rodiquez had very small roles but both gave good performances. They also get points for being the sexy babes that they are. Overall, Fast & Furious is one to check out & own when it comes to video. It doesn't matter if your a fan of cars or the series. This movie is surprisingly entertaining expereince that you'll never forget, trust me. Fast & Furious is a spectacular supercharged action fueled thrill ride that keeps pumping energy through every sequence that keeps you wanting more & more. 5 stars

When Michael collides with Murph, Michael calls the cops for backup to take out Murph & his new found crew in a violent battle where anybody would be lucky to survive at 3000 miles to Graceland.

3000 Miles To Graceland was cool crime movie. The action was nonstop in sequences especially during the casino & at Graceland. The shootouts were bloody & violent. It was good that this movie had action but I thought it was a little over the top in a crime movie. I seriously couldn't tell what the genre for this movie was. It stars off as a crime/drama movie then towards the end its turns into a mindless action movie. I still liked this for what it was. It kept me entertained with a good plot even though it had some holes in it. This movie also provided strong language that was a little too much for this movie. The acting was top notch from every actor. Kurt Russell gives a rieveiting performance that shows attitude. Kevin Costner was mesmerizing & excellent for his role. He played a good bad guy. Some might think he doesn't but I do. He stole this film to me. He's a great actor just as Russell. Courtney Cox Arquette was so sexy showing her beautiful legs in every scene. She gave a surprising performance that showed emotion caring for her son. Christian Slater, David Arquette & Bookem Woodbine which didn't play much did a good job as the con gang. They all were very violent & stimulating which was also a very surprise. Thomas Haden Church & Kevin Polack who played the cops hunting down Murph were believible & did their thing to make this movie succeed. Everybody else made this movie enjoyable with their acting skills. 3000 Miles To Graceland is one to check out. I would give this a rental for ones who looking for a decent crime version. For action, I highly recommend who get a copy on DVD if your a fan of that genre. 3000 Miles To Graceland is a very good crime/action thats highly entertaining with nonstop gunfights & jaw dropping suspense. 3 1/2 stars

12 Rounds was a very surprising action movie to me. It has a great plot, great action & great acting that I didn't see coming. The action sequences were shot very well which made them look so real. They were electrifying & exciting to watch. The camera was a bit shakey like in the Bourne Ultimatum but made the action come to life just like that movie's action scenes did. Now for the big finalie, the acting by John Cena. I have to tell you that John Cena really impressed me by his acting ability in this movie. John proves that he has what it takes to be an actor & action star. Aiden Gillen played a dirty & violent crminal. I'm not too familiar with this guy but he really did his thing & made a good appearence. It was just as good watching him act as Cena's. In this film you get to root for the good & bad guy on screen which rarely happens in movies. I think John & Aiden stole this film. Between the two of them was just so fantastic playing cat & mouse. I hope Cena & Gillen keep starring in films like this one because I think the two of them could have a big future in acting. Ashely Scott that I wasn't too sure about did a great job too playing Molly. She was very believible showing emotion & anger. Everyone of the cast was outstanding in their own way which made this movie that much more enjoyable. The entertainment stand out as one of the most entertaining action movie Ive seen in a while since Live Free or Die Hard. Overall, 12 Rounds is worth paying to see & own when it comes to DVD. If you like massive explosions, exhilerating car chases, or solid gunfights you'll like 12 Rounds. If you into fighting, look somewhere else because this movie doesn't contain that at all. It's a fast-paced version of speed that keeps going & never stops. It's an intense experience that you just want to experience all over again. 12 Rounds is a highly entertianing action adrenaline pumping fueled thriller with excellent storyline & mindblowing stunts.

Now John is back in action as he goes on a dangerous mission by getting back his wife & using his military skills to take out the bad guys one by one by any means necessary. I The Marine has alot of nontop action sequences that were very intense. It had the most amount of high intensity explosions I've ever seen in a movie. The movie did look kinda fake in parts but it was a very fun ride from start to finish. I really enjoyed every minute of this film. It had good entertainment value to keep you satisfied throughout. John Cena did a pretty decent job for his first flick. He didn't have much lines in this one but how much do you expect from someone's first starring role. John really kicked *** in this movie. He uses his wrestling moves which I thought was very cool coming from a wrestler. Kelly Carlson is very sexy to watch & look at. She gave a pretty good performance as well. Robert Patrick was a pretty good villian that was very edgy & vicious. I didn't really care for the other actors in this movie because their acting was so choppy. I know the other actors could've done a whole lot better on their acting. Thats the only reason you would have a hard time watching this flick but when the action heats up, its so entertaining to watch. You get shocked till the very end. Believe me, there is enough action to go around for the fans. Overall, I recommend this movie for action junkies. Its not a movie to be taken seriously, just one to watch by turning your brain off & enjoy. The Marine is full of action with spectacular adrenaline & nonstop thrills. 3 1/2 stars

The movie kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.Kevin Bacon does a great job as portraying the vigilante full of emotion throughtout the film. Kelly Preston is good as the emotional mother who cries out for her family. Garret Hedlund was a psychotic gang leader who showed so much anger towards Nick & his family. All the cast did a good job making this movie belivible enough to entertain. Overall, everyone needs to see this.Iif someone hasn't, i recommend them to go out & pick theirselves up a copy. They wont regret it. It's defenitly one to own. Death Sentence is an all out revenge thriller with nonstop action, exciting thrills & bone-crushing suspense. 4 1/2 stars

While the three are fighting in the tournament, they will decide the outcome on which one of them will fight an evil sorcerer named Shang Sung (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) for the fate of the world. Mortal Kombat is a great accomplishment to a video game movie. It's probably the best fighting video game movie so far. Their's alot of hardcore fight sequences throughout. Some are which very violent where they take your soul as they like to call it fatality. You get to see each character use something powerful just like they do in the game. All the characters were dressed their best just like they were in the game. Robin Shou who played Liu Kang looked the real deal. Robin is a martial artist in real life so that was a good character for him to play. Linden Ashby who took on Johnny Cage was fantastic. He also looked the part for his character. I enjoyed watching Johnny Cage use his martial arts skills fightng his way through the tournament. Sonya Blade who was played by the sexy Bridgette Wilson did awesome job too. She was so fun to watch & look at. Bridgette Wilson is a beautiful & talented actress with nice legs. I would like to see more of her in movies like this one where she kicks butt. Talisa Soto who portrayed Kitana was also good. She looked so sexy in her outfit. I just wish she played more in the movie like everybody else did. No suprise about Christopher Lambert. He's always cool with his character. He was absolutely believible as Raiden. Everyone else was good for their parts too. They all made this movie become such a good video game movie addaption. Mortal Kombat is a roundhouse action-packed rollecoaster ride full of nonstop fights that will blow you out of this world. 4 stars

It had jumps & scares here that were very shocking. The violence was medicore at best. The acting was decent from the cast. Not the best but just ok for me. I think Ryan Reynolds tried to hard acting in this one. I just think he went a little over the top in scenes. I've seen better from Ryan in his other films but this one just dosen't cut it. Melissa Geroge, what can I really say about her hmmm I just thought she was horrible & annoying. I expected better out of her than this. I think their kids were the best of the whole casting. They played their parts really good showing their emotional side. The Amityville Horror is a decent horror/thriller ghost story with sustaining suspense & some horrifying scares. 3 stars

When the Collingwood's settle in their new house, Mary asks her parents if she can go meet a friend & hang. Mary's parents tell her that she can go. When Mary meets up with her friend, they run into a mysterious boy named Justin (Spencer Treat Clark) who seems very suspicious. Justin invites Mary & her friend to come with him to his motel to hang. Later on, Mary & her friend gets in danger when Krug & his psychos come in Justin's motel & start harrasiing them. Krug's gang take Mary & friend out in the woods almost close to her lakehouse. Mary tries to escape but Krug catches her & starts taking advantage of her.

When the parents do find out they take matters in their own hands by getting revenge against Krug & his gang in the most grosteque ways imaginable. The Last House on the Left is one of the most entertaining horror movies I've ever seen in my life. This one is alot different from the original because this one is more about feeling. I really think this movie is for everyone because it teaches you a valuable lesson about knowing who to trust & taking up for your family when needed. This movie had alot of gruesome kills which are very disturbing when shown. Theirs also a very violent rape scene that was very hard to watch. It was was just so awful watching that innocent girl who did nothing to deserve what she got. This movie shows you that a horror movie can be good without so much torture. You'd be suprised how much torture can be in some of those few violent scenes. I also think they went a little too over the top with those scenes but it didn't really seem to bother me all that much because I was having such good time watching this enjoyable flick. I absolutely loved this movie because it had me cringing inside by feeling everyone's pain from begining till end. Its that good trust me. The acting was unbelievible from an all-star cast. Tony Goldwyn & Monica Potter have a big future towards them. They showed so much emotion for their daughter that makes them look oscar-worthy. I really enjoyed watching them on screen in every scene. Sara Paxton who plays Mary plays the frightened daughter perfectly. She is very talented young actress who I think also has a big carrer in the future. Krug who was played by Garret Dillahunt was a terrifying bad guy. Krug's gang also kept me on the edge watching their acting. Everyone was just perfect for this movie. I couldn't think anyone else who could've played their parts. I would've gave this 5 stars but since it had a big sadistic rape scene in it which almost made me cry I'm going to give it 4 1/2. Overall, I recommend everyone to see the film. You won't regret paying for it. The Last House on the Left is a horrifying thrill ride that will have you freaked & shaking all over.

"You want me to hear what I did to your daughter?" "No, I want to hear you beg for your life."

Years later, it does happen again & Slim can't take it anymore so she trys to tell Mitch that its over that she can't go through this anymore. Mitch doesn't like her tone so out of nowhere he hits her & tells her that you can either stay with me or fight back. Now without her husband knowing, Slim takes her kid & runs away from Mitch so he can't abuse them anymore. Things get worse as Mitch searches for them all over the place by stalking them & pursuing their every escape. Slim finally comes to the point where she has had enough of Mitch & she will do anything protect whats hers by any means necessary. Enough is a knockout of a thriller. It has alot of suspense/thrills in this one. Jennifer Lopez gives a jaw breaking performance as the mother/wife in this film. She has attitude putting her life on the line every step to make things right. Overall, I recommend this movie to everyone. It's one to watch & learn if you ever get into a situation like that you know what to do. Enough is an exciting adrenaline pumping thriller. 3 1/2 stars

Gridiron Gang

Gridiron Gang is a heart warming true story about a camp patrol officer named Sean Porter (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) who gets a few of young teen inmates together & makes a football team out of them. Sean does this by showing them how to use respect & care for one another. The other coaches thinks its a bad idea mixing the wrong up. Sean must prove them wrong by showing them he can make a difference & accomplish what he is set out to do by turning his team into winners. Gridiron Gang is very good sports/drama entertainment. The acting is so good it makes this movie oscar worthy. Dwayne Johnson seemed that he put his heart & everything he had in this movie. He should star in more movies like this because I think these roles suit him great. This movie is violent at times between the criminals. They just get so angry & do things that you don't want to see. Overall, Gridiron Gang is a deffinent must see for sports/the rock fans. Its a movie that will put a big smile on your face & one that you will never stop watching. Gridiron Gang is emotionally, exciting, wonderful, outstanding, excellent picture. 4 stars

When the teens get to Michaels house, everything goes quiet as Michael finds them & starts terrozing them one by one. I have to tell you that Ressurection is the 3rd worst Halloween movie out of the trilogy. For one, its not even scary or terrifying like the other ones were. It was fun at times but still isn't worth seeing over & over. It was somewhat entertaining. the acting was ok but not too good. I liked the sexy Tyra Banks though even though she had a small part in the film. Oh the violence was horrible for a Halloween movie. Thats what they messed up more than anything, not using graphic violence. There was jsut some scenes with some blood & gore but not enough to like. Overall, this one is only worth seeing once for the trilogy only nothing more. Resurrection is a terrible experience for a horror movie. 2 stars

Alone in the Dark

Now the only thing standing in between the monsters is Edward, his girlfriend (Tara Reid) & help of a special agency leading by (Stephen Dorff). They are the only thing that can put them down & save their world. This was a pretty cool game movie to me even though I haven't played the game before. It has alot of nonstop action fight sequences that are very bloody at times. The acting was decent. It had enjoyable entertainment. The only problem I had with this movie is the storyline. It didn't make any sense at all. Overall, Alone in the Dark is a decent action flick. 3 stars

This one has more action than the other two which makes it the best one in my book. I thought this one was a great ending to the trilogy. Revolutions is hardcore scifi'action fun that keeps you wanting more. 5 stars

Now it's up to a Sheriff (Kerr Smith) to find Harry & stop him before the terror keeps continuing. This was defenitly a movie that puts you right in the show. As I was watching the film in 3-D I was so amazed how awesome the effects made the movie look. This new 3-D projection that they made made this come to life. This movie was filled with brutality kills which includes lots & lots of blood & gore. Its probably the sickest, most nastiest grotesque movie I have ever seen. It was also a fun entertaining horror movie to watch. The acting was top notch from some of the actors like Kerr Smith & Jamie King which were my favorite in the movie. I think they played their characters great. Everyone else could've done whole lot better but still were pretty good. Overall if you like 3-D or horror movies I defenitly recommend this movie to you. Trust me, you won't disappointed at all. My Bloody Valentine is not for the faint of heart but it defenitly is an enjoyable experience on screen. My Bloody Valentine is a heartbreaking rock solid horror thrill ride. 4 stars

Friday the 13th
½

Flixster - Share Movies Friday The 13th is a decent remake from the original. It's like the old one in everyway like teens camping out in the woods where Jason hunts & slashes everyone of them. It has enough blood & gore for you to enjoy throughout. The only thing that I didnt like of this remake was that it had way too much sexuality & drug use. If it left some of that out, it would've been better horror movie I think. The other thing that I didn't like was that Jason isn't hisself in this one. He is a completely different horror icon that acts real human & smart. I always thought of Jason as a monster who never had a plan to capture his victims. He just captures them by looking not setting traps for them. I just thought that was really messed up. To me, this isn't a Jason movie at all. It's just another slasher film about a killer wearing a mask hacking up a bunch of teens. Don't get me wrong, this was a very fun movie to watch. I really enjoyed every minute of it but it's defenitly not a Jason movie. I really liked the ending too. It leaves you off a sequel. Overall, this is a decent remake for Friday The 13th. If you like horror & slasher movies this is defenitly the one for you. If you want a great classic, go look somewhere else because this one is no where near that. In the end, Friday The 13th is a fun filled slasher flick. 3 1/2 stars

The International

Photo Editor As I went into see The International, I expected a James Bond sort type movie but all I got was a boring drama. Man am I pissed. This movie was a complete borefest. The acting was top notch from everyone on screen but this movie provided no entertainment & the storyline didnt make any sense. I mean how can you enjoy a movie & not understand whats going on. The only thing going to see this film is the amazing shootout in the Guggehiem Museum which was very exciting to watch. Thats about all you would like to experience if your thinking about sseing this. You want to know something else? I didnt even finishing watching this crap because right after the shootiout it just got back to more boring talking & i'm pretty sure thats what it ended with too. I tell yall, I really wish i enjoyed this movie but it just didnt do it for me. Clive Owen is one of my favorite actors but this movie just didnt do him justice at all. Clive, I know you can do better than that. In the end, The International is just a bunch of worthless junk that should've never been made or shown in theaters. I would give this 1 star but since I witnessed the most relaistic & spectacular shootout in history, i'll be nice & give it 2. 2 stars

The Pushers is one of those next who can control people's minds by doing anything they want to do with them. The Movers are telekinetic who can move things with their minds. Bleeders can scream at the top of their lungs & destroy anything & everything. Their are more but I think those are the most important ones.

Push is an extremely entertaining movie from start to finish. It has a good storyline, great action, good special effects, & great acting. I have to say even though this movie had some action, it was enough to keep you on the edge. When the action scenes came, they were very violent & intense at times making the movie seem like r-rated. The movie was also pretty long but it was never boring because the plot keeps you interested throughout. Overall, Push is a movie that everyone will enjoy if they like superheros.

Now Bryan has to use his special set of skills to take down the kidnappers & get back his daughter. This movie was so fast-paced with action at every turn with explosive gunfights & hand to hand combat. It didnt slow down for one minute. Taken was so very entertaining so u couldnt possibly get bored. It keeps u watching till the very end. Liam Neeson was brillant & intelligent just like he always is. He really kicks butt in this one. I thought this was his best performace & movie ever. Maggie Grace who plays Kim did a very good job as the daughter. Famke Janssen who is one of my favorite actreeses gives a heart warming performance as the mother who is worrying about her daughter. Everyone else were good on screen but those 3 are my favorite. overall this is a great action movie i'm sure everyone will enjoy. i thought it was the best action movie of the year so far. i recommend this movie for Liam Neeson & action/spy fans. Taken is a great action packed adrenaline fueled thrill ride, 5 stars.

Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans

Rise of the Lycans is a great prequel to the other Underworld movies telling the story about how the Lycans were slaves to the Death Dealers. It shows you how they battled it out before the war started. This one I think had the best plot out of the other two which makes it the best one out of the series. It keeps you interested & doesn't drag one bit. It keeps you throughly entertained. It has a brillant cast including the talented Lucian who was played by Michael Sheen. My second favorite actor in this movie was the lovely & sexy Rhona Mitra as Sonja. She was absolutley amazing as a vampire. I thought her performance was about the same as Kate Beckinsale's was. The last strong actor here is the fantastic Bill Nighy, the powerful vampire Vicktor. Everyone elses acting was believible enough to watch. This movie is filled with bloody fight sequences from start to finish. It has enough blood/gore to go around for anyone who craves for it. I really liked the end of the movie where it shows Selene sitting up on the ledge where the first one started off. That really suprised me & put a great end to the trilogy. In the end, I recommend this movie for anyone who like the other 2 Underworlds or just if you like vampires/werewolves. There is no way you couldn't like this movie. Its the best prequel I've ever seen. So be sure to check this one out if you loved the other two Underworlds. Its a jaw dropping heart pumping action packed thrill ride that doesn't stop till the very end. Rise of the Lycans is a masterpiece!!!!! 5 stars

The Unborn
The Unborn(2009)

I recently saw the Unborn & i must say that I was really impressed of how scary the scenes were in this movie. There are just so many jumps & scares to go around that keeps the movie going at good pace with a good script. This movie kinda lacked in the horror department because it concentrated more on storyline than scares.. I really think it should've been half /half but still it was a pretty good movie to watch. The Unborn is defenitly for horror fans nothing more. It has everything you wanted out of a horror movie & it delivers very well. The Unborn was one of the good horror movie's i've seen in a while. The Unborn is a scaretatic rollercoaster ride. 3 stars

Punisher: War Zone









Punisher War Zone is the best Punisher movie to date. It blows the other 2 to shreads. It makes up for both of the other ones by showing what the Punisher is really made of. This is not a sequel just like the 04 Punisher wasnt to the 89 one. Its a whole new breed of Punisher movie that takes violence to a different level. Frank Castle (Ray Stevenson) is still suffering from his families death & is still seeking vengence on the people who are invovled with their murder. It starts off where a mob family who are having a meeting in a mansion, then all heck breaks loose as the Punisher comes in & disrupts them by torturing the whole crime family in some of the most brutal ways that he knows how. From there, Frank finds out that one of the crime family escapes whos name is Billy Russoti (Dominic West) & continues his mission seeking him out. Frank finds out where Billy is located at & wipes out his crew in more brutal ways. Finally, Frank finds Billy & eliminates him or so he thought. It just so happens Billy survived his torment that crushed his muscles in his face. Now Billy is now called Jigsaw. Jigsaw finds out about his long lost brother Looney Bin Jim (Doug Hunchinson) that is being held in a psychiatric penitentiary & frees him to join him & his crew. As Frank is dealing with matters in his own hands, Jigsaw wants revenge by getting back Castle for what he did to him. Jigsaw then decides to go on the street with his brother & gather some mob families around to take out Castle. Now Castle has to come face to face with his worst enemy, Jigsaw & his army that he has recruited in the biggest battle to the death. Punisher War Zone is the best movie i've seen all year. I enjoyed the heck out of it. It was by far more darker & entertaining than the last 2. It has a ton of over top action/gore that never slows down till the very end. It is a very fast paced movie with a great story & pretty good actors like the brillant Ray Stevenson who had a outstanding performance as the Punisher. He is one bad killing machine that knows exactly how to get the job done by punishing everyone in sight. Dominic West was another great actor in this movie who played the psychotic Jigsaw. Doug Huchinson that was Looney Bin jim played a great insain villian that was just crazy as he can be. Wayne Knight was the last one who I thought did a good job as Microchip who supplies everything for the Punisher. Julie Benz played her character well. Colin Salmon kinda went over the edge with his acting skills but he was still believable. Overall, this movie makes u want more from the Punisher & thats exactly what u get throughout. So far i think this is the best superhero comic book movie to be released. It brought the comic books to life by releasing everything that were in them. I recommend this movie for Punisher & action fans. Oh if u cant handle violence dont watch this movie because this is what this movie is all about. For the ones that can dig it, it has enough for u to cheer for. Punisher War Zone is an awesome brutality action packed movie. This is a new start for a great franchise for the Punisher. Go see it & have fun watching it. u will defenitly love the crap out of it, 5 stars.

For the new one coming out, I also hope Leon is in it since he was in the Resident Evil 4 game. Their getting rid of Alice so I hope he's the next action star. That would be so freaking awesome. It would be a great begining of a new franchise for Resident Evil that will defenitly be a worthy entry just like this one was.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Flixster - Share Movies Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is fun sequel to action blockbuster franchise. This time Rick (Brendan Frasier), Eve, (Maria Bello) Jonathan,(John Hannah) & Alex (Luke Ford) are back in danger when Rick son Alex uncovers a new Mummy aka the Dragon Emperor (Jet Li) & brings him to life. From Chinatown to the dessert, the O'Connell's face the Dragon Emperor & his army in a battle to save the world once again. This Mummy I think is the best in the Mummy series because it has more action/adventure in it. There are daring escapes, chases, & gunfights throughout. Everyone did exceptionally well with their performance as always. I was really suprised with Maria Bello's performance as Eve. She sounds just like the other actress, Rachel Wiez. Maria really impressed me on that. Thought she was going to fail but she succeeded. Overall, this is a good entry. If you love the other Mummy movies you will defenitly love this one. Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a heart pounding rollercoaster ride. 4 stars

The Spirit
The Spirit(2008)

Flixster - Share Movies Ok, first off as i was walking into see the Spirit, I had very high expectations on watching it. Well, watching the first 10 mins changed all that as I witnessed the stupidest piece of cinema ever. I was very disappointed in the Spirit. I thought it was going to be a serious & fun action/drama. It just so happens that it was nothing more than a poorly written insain comedy movie with bad acting. I mean how could have all these great actors in such a bad film that doesn't even make any sense for that point. The only actor that you don't get tired of watching in this film is the sexy Eva Mendes. She is probably the only one thats enjoyable to watch. I wish it was Samuel L. jackson who could've been the great one here but as much as I like to say he's my favorite actor, this film did not cut it for him at all. He was just as bad as everyone else in this film. Another thing that disappointed me was that I thought this movie was going to be a hardcore action film with a good story. It didnt even have none of that. The only thing that would've probably saved this film is the visual effects. I must say that I really enjoyed watching the CGI. In the end, The Spirit is by far the worst movie ever made. This movie gets a big fat F for failing the fans/audiences who pay to see this junk. 1 star

Bedtime Stories

Flixster - Share Movies Bedtime Stories is a hillarious family comedy about a Uncle (Adam Sandler) who makes up bedtime stories to tell his nephew & niece. As their Uncle is telling the stories to them, the kids end up predicting what happens in the stories. When that happens, the stories start affecting their Uncle's life by becoming reality. Soon the kids Uncle starts realizing that only the kids can make the stories come true. Bedtime Stories cracked me up from start to finish. All the stories that were told by Adam Sandler were funny in their own little way. Something was always funny in them. Just when you think you had enough laughs think again. Adam Sandler is at his best by being funnier as ever. Bedtime Stories is defenitly the price of admission. So go out & watch this fun flick. 5 stars

Quantum of Solace
½

Quantum of Solace is a great bond movie. It was not better than Casino Royale but very close. If they just had a better story it would probably be the same as the 1st one. It did have the most action u'll ever see in a bond film for sure. The action scenes were very strong & long. They included gunfights, fighting, car chase, boat chase & plane chase all in one movie. They were all basically put together throughout the movie. Some of the action scenes reminded me from the bourne films. the acting was top notch from Daniel Craig. He played bond well just like he always does. Olga Kurylenko played her role well too. I think she's probably the best bond girl ever. She is so fine to watch in the movie. You just have to love her & her sexy accent. Everyone else i didn't really care for. They still did good for a bond film though. There was just something I didn't like about the movie & that was James Bond never said his line by introducing hisself saying "Bond James Bond." That just really upset me there because he always uses that line. The ending kinda upset me too but still tells ya that there's going to be a sequel which i'm really looking forward to. I defenitly got my price of admisson watching this movie. I didn't really have high expectations about this movie but when it was over I was very satisfied & glad I went to see it. Overall i recommend this for all bond & action fans. It's a fun fasted paced full action-packed bond film that I'm sure everyone will enjoy. 4 1/2 stars.

Flixster - Share Movies Please nobody go see this movie. It was such a waste of time & of my life. Its the best acting I've ever seen out of Vin Diesel but thats the only reason I would watch this again is because of him. Everything else like the storyline, action, suspense was so bad. I've never seen such an awful movie in my life. Oh & i forgot to mention booooooooring!!!! I beg yall dont go see this movie if you dont wont to waste your time. I'm sure yall will hate it just as I did. I give this movie a half a star just because Vin Diesel's acting has improved. 1/2 star

Hannibal Rising
½

Flixster - Share Movies This is one of the most boring movies ever made. It was so hard to watch because it took forever to get anywhere. Just kept thinking to myself when I'm going to see any violence. I never did till the very end. Its just talking, talking, & more talking throughout. Who ever hasnt seen or wants to see this movie dont. Its nothing but a waste of time believe me. 1 1/2 stars

The Messengers
½

Flixster - Share Movies I tried & tried to watch this movie the best that I could but it never happened. I mean I was watching it but never got into it if you know wat i mean. It was just so dragged out & never got anywhere till the end. It was more like a family/drama to me. It was never fun to watch. I wish I got my time back from watching this load of crap. 1 1/2 stars

Mission: Impossible 2

Flixster - Share Movies This was an ok action movie for me. It took forever to get anywhere in the movie. It concentrated more on plot than action which i didnt like. The action was intense when it was shown. Lots of shooting & explosions john woo style. If it had all that in the movie it would've been amazing movie. So if I was to watch this movie again i would fast forward it all the way towards the middle of the movie because thats where all the action takes place. Overall not good or bad just ok. Its a movie you either hate or love. For me its in between. 3 stars

Hulk
Hulk(2003)

Flixster - Share Movies The Hulk was a pretty good action movie. It could've been a whole lot better though. If there was more action than plot & if the hulk looked more realistic then it would've been just perfect. Overall not bad for a comic book movie. Just a few things to add. It was still quite entertaining at times. Its just a movie that I wouldnt add to my dvd collection. 3/5 stars

Street Kings
Street Kings(2008)

Flixster - Share Movies I just saw Street Kings & man I have to tell you that this was the greatest cop movie I have ever seen.

I wasnt bored one time while watching Street Kings. I was glued to my seat from start to finish. I couldnt take my eyes off the screen once. It hold your attention & keep you entertained throughout till the exciting conclusion. It had so many twists & turns that you dont see coming what makes this movie even greater. The Departed was great but Street Kings was amazing. So if you like movies that have a great story, suspense & action to go along with it. Go and see this you wont regret paying for your ticket. This movie is oscar worthy I think & it should be because of how amazing it is with really great actors. 5 stars

Batman Begins

Flixster - Share Movies Christian Bale gives a fantastic performance as Bruce Wayne aka Batman. I thought he was perfect for the role. He almost beats out Michael Keaton playing Batman. Batman Begins tells & shows how Bruce Wayne became Batman. It shows how Bruce Wayne learned his fighting skills, how he got his fear from bats & how his parents got murdered. I don't want to tell you anymore because I'll end up ruining it for u. This movie is very action-packed & suspenseful. I think the Batmobile is alot cooler than the original. You'll see what I mean when u see in this movie. For all the ones that haven't seen this movie yet, I defenitly recommend you do. Its a begining of a new batman franchise. Batman Begins is amazing. 5 stars

When they all gather at hill house werid things start happening at night when their all sleeping. They hear noises everywhere around them & they don't know whats making those sounds. Soon they realize that their not the only ones alone in the house. I must say when I watched The Haunting I thought it was the most boring movie that I have ever seen in my life. It was not horrifying or terrifying in any way. It was just a waste of my time. The title had nothing to do with the plot. This movie was more of a drama/mystery instead of a horror movie. Nothing really happened till the very last 30 mins. Thats when it started getting good but it still ended awful for me. Overall i recommend nobody sees this film. Its nothing but a waste of your time trust me. So don't buy or rent, just aviod at all costs. 1/2 star

Freddy vs. Jason

freddy vs. jason is an awesome horror movie. finally the 2 horror icons we love come together to face off. this movie was a complete gorefest throughout & trust me it was very pervasive with all the extreme violence it had in it. this movie did have enough killings. freddy & jason's victims were killed in so many brutal ways by them which were very gory. there was also alot of pervasive language througout. the acting was top notch from everyone. the special effects were right on the money. freddy & jason gave a great showdown when they fought each other. it gives away something at the end telling u that there is going to be a sequel which i'm looking forward to seeing. they have to add one more horror icon to fight with them. i really hope its michael myers. that would be so freaking awesome. hope they make it soon. overall, i recommend this movie for freddy, jason & horror fans. i just love this movie. one of the best horror movies ever made. this movie might be real hard to watch for some of u out there b/c of how violent it is. for the rest of u its one horror movie not too be missed. ur not safe awake or asleep, 5 stars.

½

Flixster - Share Movies the dream child was just alright for me. wasnt too thrilled watching it. it had a pretty fair amount of killings in it which were exciting when they were shown. it kinda dragged a lit bit but it was concentrating more on storyline than freddy which i didnt like. this was better than freddy's revenge i must say but still was not one of the best in my book. maybe others will think differently bout it but lets just leave it to that, 3 1/2 stars.

Dracula 2000
Dracula 2000(2000)

Flixster - Share Movies dracula 2000 was a very good vampire flick. i wish it had a better story than the one it had but it was still ok for me. this was also a very entertaining vampire film. i thought gerald butler made a great dracula. he was creepy & scary in so many ways. the female vampires were so attractive & hott especially the lovely jennifer esposito. this movie also had alot of good special effects in the way of the matrix. this movie seemed to have a litt action going for it also which i thought was cool. the acting was pretty good. it could've been done better from some actors like jonny lee miller & justine waddel but they still didnt disappoint me. everyone else did a real good job. overall i recommend this movie for vampire & horror fans. not a bad movie to add to ur vampire collection, 3 stars.

Righteous Kill

Flixster - Share Movies righteous kill was a pretty good crime/drama. its bout 2 cops (robert de niro) & (al pacino) who r trying to bring a killer to justice by investigating the murders he's commited. now, as time goes by with the investigation, the 2 cops begin to realize that this isnt just a ordinary killer. they assume its someone in their own department. this was a very entertaining movie. i must say i was very suprised from the acting in this movie. everyones performances were oscar-worthy i think especially from the two legends. the only prob i had while watching this movie is that its predictable who the killer is before it gets to the end. after that there was really no point watching it but i did anyway just to see how it turned out. it wasnt bad but could've been a whole lot better like being a unpredictable cop drama instead of how it was. overall i recommend this movie if u r a cop drama, de niro & pacino fan. other than that stay away. it still was a pretty decent flick, 3 stars.
