Predators
Predators (2010)
7 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

(7.5/10)

First off let me start of by saying if you dislike blood gore and violence you should not be watching a predator movie. If you are looking for an Oscar wining film again you should not be watching a predator movie. But if you are looking for an action packed movie with great special affects I highly recommend this movie.

The plot of the movies is pretty simplistic seven complete strangers are dropped into this giant jungle. Royce (Adrien Brody) falls first he plays the role of leader and show why through out the movie. Brody did an amazing job in my opinion I have never seen him play a role as an action star and he did not disappoint. Brody made the movie worthwhile in my opion as he gives the meedioaker dialog some heart. The next big leading character is Isabelle (Alice Braga) she plays an Israel sniper she does a good job. The rest of the crew consists of a Mexican cartel enforcer Cuchillo (Danny Trejo) who is quite typical when used for a Mexican looking male. Spetsnaz soldier Nikolai (Oleg Taktarov) who comes strapped with a ridiculously large machine gun. My second favorite character of the movie is defiantly Yakuza enforcer Hanzo (Louis Ozawa Changchien) who the movie builds a better relation ship with the some of the personnel dropped plus Hanzo is a bad ass. Doctor Edwin (Topher Grace) is out of place among the crew of people dropped, death row inmate Stans (Walton Goggins) and, Revolutionary United Front officer Mombasa (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali). All of these human versions of predators are skeptical and angry at their situation. They quickly realize that they need to work as a team if they want to find out why they were chosen. Brody leads the group pointing out things he know yet he is the only member of the group who does not tell the others of his past. They quickly realize that they are on an alien planet. $$$SPOILER$$$ because of the sun, the group encounters a huge group of crazy alien dogs that charge them. During the attack the group learns they are the prey and they were put on the planet to be the game. This is when the Cuchillo goes missing and the predators use him calling for help to set up a trap. The director Nimrod Antal uses the same style of action as the first predator movie which as its advantages and falls. The movie slowly picks off the group until the final battle between Brody and the large predator.

$$SAFE TO READ$$ the movies has a loose ending but it was not horrible its got great action scene through out and is unpredictable which I liked the character development could have been better but you feel attached to a couple of the characters. Overall the movie was greater entertainment but I would recommend it with your lady friend its more for guys night.

Avatar
Avatar (2009)

(10/10)
This movie was amazing it absolutely blew my mind for multiple reasons. Avatar was astonishingly beautiful and covered meaningful realistic subject matter. This movie was perfectly directed, produced, and written. All these areas of accomplishment go to one man James Cameron, not only did he write the movie but he directed and produced it to such a high level of quality that this movie will go down as one of the greatest movies of all time. The special affects in this movie were unbelievable and go far beyond anything I have ever seen. Avatars three d special affects set the standard for 2010; this movie not only captured the special affects at their absolute greatest but I capture something else art. Artistically this movie is superior to all others. If you can imagine the most beautiful forest in the world painted perfectly with colored lights that?s how it felt. The acting in this movie left me stunned considering that Sam Worthington did the leading role; who is an Australian actor that?s not very popular in the United States. Worthington went far beyond my expectations capturing emotion like a god with amazing voice acting to top of his greatness, while he was the avatar. This movie had one average spot and that was the score even at average the score did an amazing job at capturing the artwork and emotional beauty of the people and aliens world.

This movie just continues to please, as the plot was amazing. In 2154 a company know as the RDA Corporation is mining Pandora, this lush planet in a far away galaxy. The planet carries a valuable mineral that the mining corporation desires know as Unobtainium. This mining company hires ex marines as security on this planet from the natives the Na'vi; extremely tall, large and strong creatures that appear as blue humanoids those almost act and look part feline. The human mining base also has a avatar project which is ran by doctor Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver) grace is a scientist who has study the Na'vi and their language. The avatar project is a complicated process. The scientist found a way to create a avatar that the humans could switch bodies into in order to look breath and communicate while being exactly like the Na'vi people. The problem was that these avatar bodies had to match their human users genetic DNA code in order for the control transfer to work. Doctor grace is furious when she finds one of the new scientists who had an avatar created for him is dead. This scientist luckily had a twin brother Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) who takes his place. With no scientific background Jake is assigned as a bodyguard for this science crew due to his past experience as a marine. Jake is sent out o learn about these strange people and earn there trust he must. Suddenly the movie changes coarse as the fine line that is drawn as peace is vanishing. Jakes confused mind is put to the test as love, richeousness , and honesty come into the picture. Jake is forced to fight and defend what he believes is justice. This is a action packed dramatic experience and afterwards this movie can only leave you in ahh. Love, justice, life style, and reality are all portrayed in this movie that I consider to be one of the greatest films of all time.

If you have interests in any of these following subjects this movie can speak to you and I highly recommend you give it a watch no matter what the cost. sci-fi,war,love,culture,religion,traditon, unity, reality,specail afects,three-d,values of life, and more . Please give this movie a watch and just maybe it will touch you in the same way it did me.

Meet Dave

(3.5/10)


Well were can I get started on this movie. Meet Dave was catastrophic; I blame this on the directors and the scriptwriters. This movie to me had the potential to be great. The problem was the directing, script, and special affects. When I saw the cast I couldn't believe this movie was so bad. I myself am Eddie Murphy fan and with these stars backing him up, Elizabeth Banks, Gabrielle Union, Ed Helms, Scott Caan, and Kevin Hart how could this movie be bad.

Ok so the movie is about these small aliens one inch in height, which have come to earth in search of a small spherical ball. This ball has the power to steal all of earth?s oceans in a matter of hours. The aliens came to earth because their home planet is almost complete out of its main resource salt. This mineral is supposedly their energy source so their mission is to steal it from earth. These small aliens come to earth inside of a ship, which to the human eye resemble an exact life size Eddie Murphy. These aliens have no sense of feeling and quickly search to find the sphere. When they first arrived on earth they assumed that humans were foul mannered and dumb primitive creatures. These motionless aliens quickly catch on to human emotions and ideals. These new earth life styles starts growing on the ships crew. Number 2(Ed Helms) is the alien who takes command from number one the captain played by Eddie Murphy. Number one has to fight to save planet earth and fight to earn number threes (Gabrielle Union) love.

All of this is done in Childs movie style of way. The good in this movie is that it does have some funny scenes that can guarantee a laugh. The actors in this movie did a great job aside from the young kid in the movie. The score to this move was amazing and quite hilarious and with great side characters they saved this movie from suicide. The special affects were not as good I had hoped for but its not one of those movies that revolves around the special affects thankfully.

If you can watch this movie for free and don?t mind a slow corny comedy with only a few funny scenes give it a try.

Love and Basketball

9.5/10

Dam this movie was absolutely amazing I never was a big fan on romance movies until I saw this movie. Directed by Gina Prince Bythewood and starred some my favorite actress and actors. The script amazing and the score was brilliant. This movie was almost perfect for me. Great side characters as well, but maybe this movie could use a couple additional side characters.

This movie was about the child hood love that was meant to be. The beautiful Monica (Sanaa Lathan) and Quincy (Omar Epps) are both obsessed with the sport of basketball, which leads them to becoming close. This movie was not about the road to the NBA or the fun of basketball it was about how to chose what is important to you and what brings you happiness what make life fun for you. The incredible dramatic power of this movie was amazing. On top of that Sanaa and Omar have the strongest most beautiful chemistry I have ever seen on film.

I cant stress enough how amazing the score was with a hint of Maxwell in the romance you cant go wrong this movie draws you into the characters shoes and keep you feeling incredibly attached to them. Then this movie will hit you directly in the face with reality leaving you feeling disconsolate. How strong is love how much will people endeavor to get what truly brings them happiness and tranquility of mind? This movie shows the fight and the battle that develops in the heart of lovers. The first love is never forgotten and how strong that love can be is the ultimate test.

I recommend this movie to any basketball player and any one who loves a good romance this movie will keep you on your feet with anticipation and attachment. If you are a Omar Epps fan or Sanaa Lathan fan this movie will blow your mind.

The one thing I would change in this movie is a deeper exploration of the couple?s conflict. Other than that this movie is a perfect romance movie.

Wet Hot American Summer

5/10

Wow this movie had its ups and downs but over all I liked it as much as I hated it. This movie had poor filming and a poor script. the actors are for the most part are stars of today when they were much younger like Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter, Marguerite Moreau, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Zak Orth,but when they were much less experianced. Enough negative let me go through some positive aspects. The acting was corny at time but quite funny, the sound track was quite humorous and the side characters in this movie were the best part of the whole film.

Ok so the plots a bit week but trust me you will find it humors. So it?s the last day at camp fire wood. All the campers know that the last day of summer camp means the last day to get some action before the summer ends. Nobody wants to be the guy or gal who has to make up their summer romance story because it never happened. These high school camp leaders are determined to get there?s before the end of their last day at camp. The last day holds an entire summers worth of memories and hysterical events. All the campers are looking forward to the huge talent show at the end of the day knowing that is there last chance. In watching this movie you will see things you would never think would happen and after laughing at them you will kinda feel guilty about it. This movie is based in 1981 so the difference in the way things are done is quite interesting. I enjoyed seeing these actors in their younger days.

If you are not a fan on sexual humor and explicit humor this movie is defiantly not for you. The humor in this movie will take you on a rollercoaster from holly crap that?s hysterical too please stop that it?s not that funny. This movie provides some good laughs but don?t expect too much from it or you will be greatly disappointed.

I recommend this movie to anyone trying to see some ridiculous ideas of comedy acted out in an old school kind of way.
