A very welcome return for Dragon Ball Z to the big screen. I've been a fan of Dragon Ball Z since I was seven years old. It was a treat to see this in the theater. It's got amazing animation and astounding fighting. It also has that great, classic DBZ sense of humor you would expect from an episode of the show.
The only reason I'm giving this a three-star rating is because of the entertainment value. The acting, CGI, and plot are ridiculously bad, but it's fun nonetheless. What pushed the movie into the decent category is a fantastic cameo by Robbie Rist, who is Michelangelo in the live action TMNT movies in the 90s!
My absolute favorite movie of the year so far. Jon Favreau and John Leguizamo steal the show as a pair of friends doing what they love only because they love it. Sounds familiar to me and my film friends. It's very compelling for people who are passionate about what they do for a living.
It's definitely more of a Godzilla movie than that 1998 bucket of dumpster sludge. Only problem I have is that Godzilla is not the main focus of the movie. Hopefully Toho starts making real Godzilla movies again soon.
Better than the first Amazing Spider-Man, but fails to top either the first or second original Spider-Man films by Sam Raimi. The VFX for Electro were stunning. Jamie Fox and Dane DeHaan give great performances alongside Andrew Garfield. The movie suffered a bit of Spider-Man 3 Syndrome by having a bit too much crammed into the film. And of course if you are familiar with the comics, you know what happens at the end of the movie.
A love letter to the vampire sub-genre of horror with a lot of references to Dracula. Unfortunately it falls short with bad acting and drawn-out scenes. This movie should have been about 20 minutes shorter.
