The King's Speech
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Wonderfully casted and directed, Tim Hooper's "The King's Speech" is a triumphant tale about a fearful King who suffers from speech impediment, but manages to overcome it thanks from the help an failed actor who teaches him how to overcome his self-doubts. Colin Firth shine as the believable, yet humble King George the Sixth while Geoffrey Rush also tries to steal the show as the witty, yet approachable, Lionel Logue. The script was clean and the cinematography was crisp. An astounding achievement made by the filmmakers. A story that will touch and stay in your hearts forever.

Batman Begins

When it comes to pacing, this movie definitely has one of the slowest. As long as you have the patience for it, then the experience will be worth while. ?Batman Begins? not only reboots the character with proper justice, but also respects its lore and the foundation that made the character great. This story is definitely darker and more brooding than Tim Burton?s franchise, but that doesn?t mean it shouldn?t be fun also. Plus, the cinematography in this movie was great. The landscape, the set design, they all felt real and epic in scope. The score was great also. Very memorable and exciting. Too bad the editing wasn?t top notch since all the cuts felt too mashed up together, but I?m sure they fixed that in the later installments. All in all, another great piece to hang over Christopher Nolan?s belt.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

What the hell was this? Spielberg, Lucas, what have you done? Why there are so much CGI in this? Was this
story the right one to be told? "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" suffers from a weak script, poor set designs, and action sequences that were too flashy and poorly executed thanks to the overuse of CGI. None of the locations they film were authentic or as beautiful as the one we saw in the previous Indiana Jones flicks. This latest installment felt like it was made lazily so that people that don't have to get under the sun or be bitten by a mosquito. Authenticity was the key that makes these movies believable and fun. Not the fakeness of computer generated imaginary. Also, what's with the color palette, Mr. Color corrector? Like orange, much? Blah! Awful coloring...

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Thanks to an emotional, spiritual, and well-developed plot, "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" it's an unforgettable adventure that surpasses the first two installments with great used of humor, action, and thrills. This is my favorite Indiana Jones flick because it focuses on the Bible (the Holy Grail) and the subject of belief. Two strong ideas that a lot of people can relate to. Filmmakers should always connect with audiences, and director Spielberg did just that. Bravo!

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Back then, I gave this movie a two stars. Now after seeing it again, I was wrong. Sure, there are moments that were ridiculous and unrealistic, but these action/adventure movies always fall into those lines. So we have to embrace it and think of it as a ride we wished to take part of. "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" has a funny script, awesome action sequences, and a great cast that work well together thanks to their chemistry.
