A romantic drama film does not create the ooh-aah response from me that movies of more classic proportions, i.e. The Man Who Would be King, or more complex animated films such as WALL-E will elicit. But it can be absorbing and every bit as creative in its own way through the storyline and acting. I liked The Notebook (PG-13, 2004) for its message of enduring … Continue reading Movie Review: the Notebook
I loved the Transformers TV series when I was a child and was thrilled when it became a live action film. Not only that, but I liked Shia’s character and felt deeply saddened by his departure from the franchise. Anyway, I decided to continue supporting the movies and Michael Bay because, like I said, I love Transformers. Now when Mark Wahlberg landed the leading role … Continue reading ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ – Hmmm…

Is anyone else as excited about this dark, sexy and thrilling upcoming release? Not only is there the beautiful and talented Sanaa Lathan and the very scrumptious Morris Chestnut in “The Perfect Man“, but Michael Ealy continue’s his psycho persona by starring as Sanaa’s stalker. The film comes out in September and I’m definitely checking it out. The casting is moviephenomenal and the plot is … Continue reading The Not So Perfect Guy
While I’m a sucker for thrilling vampire movies, especially a backstory that depicts the tale of mr. Dracula himself, I was left with a humph feeling after seeing Dracula Untold over the weekend. I thought the beginning was a tad rushed, as Prince Vlad hurried off to seek out dark elements like right at the second he was faced with a war. Maybe the director … Continue reading Dracula Untold: Don’t Believe the Hype.
Quite the contrary to her name, Maleficent was actually a peacekeeper in her flourishing and magical kingdom until the ultimate betrayal turned her bitter. You could even say she’s a woman scorned. Anyhoo, I was a tad hesitant of watching this movie because it’s a play on the popular fairytale, Sleeping Beauty, and I’m not really one for retellings of any kind. Still, I’m happy … Continue reading At the Movies: “Maleficent”
Saw this a few minutes ago and thought I’d share with those survival/dystopian movie lovers who enjoyed the Divergent film. I know I did. Review to come. Anyhoo, check out this cool nail art video inspired by the movie and do share if you give it a try. Credit: cutepolish Continue reading DIY: Divergent Nail Art by cutepolish
I’ve been a fan of the Need for Speed video game franchise for years, so you imagine my excitement when I heard the commentator at the 2014 Super Bowl spoke about the upcoming movie version. I immediately went online to check it out, cause I just couldn’t wait for the commercial to come on. And I also thought, how come I didn’t know there was … Continue reading Forget Super Bowl, Need for Speed Finally Comes to Life!
Yes! I do. I enjoy watching scary movies simply for the excitement in begin scared out of my mind. Sadly, not all so-called scary movies have managed to do that. There have been a few though. From The Ring, The Grudge, The Shining, to the number one scariest movie of all time, The Exorcist. Notice the ones that really get me all start with ‘The’. … Continue reading I Love a Good Scare.
I’m a big fan of Vin Diesel, but even I can admit that his latest movie wasn’t very impressive. Sure, the action sequences were good enough to keep me interested but once it got into talking I fell into a blah moment and hoped they would speed it along. Of course, it’s an action film so I wasn’t really expecting mind blowing performances, but I … Continue reading Movie Review: ‘Riddick’
I always considered Matthew McConaughey to be a part-time stripper so the fact that he ended up in Magic Mike didn’t surprise me one bit. The man is inlove with his bod. Have you noticed? Sure you have, Matt doesn’t wear clothes. Anyways, now that I’ve gotten his endless public display of skin out of the way, let’s talk about Channing Tatum and of the … Continue reading ‘Mike’ has the ‘Magic’ Touch!
Disney’s Pixar animated “Brave” took over the weekend box office with a $66.7 million debut. That’s a lot of dough. This marks the 13th no.1 opening for Pixar, and the second major box-office score for Disney with a film from an in-house studio partner. “Brave” posted the second-best June opening for an animated film ever, behind only 2010’s “Toy Story 3,” which bowed to $103 million … Continue reading It’s time to be “Brave”
Liam Neeson will reprise his role as a former CIA agent with deadly skills stopping at nothing to keep his family safe. In the first release, he set out to retrieve his daughter from kidnappers who obviously had no idea who they were messing with, in the sequel, a group of idiots will set out to take revenge for the men Liam killed in the previous.
The plot is predictable but the action is just as hardcore as seen in part one. Was it a good idea to release a second, as long as its as good as the trailer, which I’m guessing it is, then this sequel is right up my alley.
Check it out and tell us what you think: Continue reading “Taken 2, is that a good idea?”
I know, my lame headlines are probably getting old but I still can’t help it. So, on to my topic at hand. “Rock of Ages.” What the hell was that? I’ve never been so disappointed about spending my time watching a movie before. I held out to about a good 50 minutes in the film then caved in. I just couldn’t watch any further. Worst … Continue reading A lot of “Ages,” Didn’t Really “Rock”
This is a talented star on the rise, whether it be music or movies, Diego Boneta is always the one to watch. The Mexican American is most notable for his role in the soap opera Rebelde, as Javier in the revamped series 90210, and as Alex in one of my favorites, Pretty Little Liars. Diego released his self-titled debut album “Responde” in 2005, and has … Continue reading Diego Boneta, Remember That Name
Don’t get me wrong, I love dance movies, especially when these films feature people who can actually dance. But what turns me off is their acting. And let’s keep it real, it’s hard to dance and act at the same time. Some may require further lessons, and by that I mean some excessive acting classes. Take Battlefield America for instance. The movie depicts the story of a young businessman who lands a community service sentence, which in turn led him to a group of misfit kids who need mentoring. With the help of a pro instructor, he works to get the kids ready for a big underground dance competition. Not a bad plot, right? Except for the fact that the movie’s directed by Chris Stokes (founder of successful but since failed boy group B2K, music producer, etc.) My point is that just because you’re a successful entrepreneur who made good music videos doesn’t mean you’re a superb film director. If you need proof, look at his previous directorial efforts. Continue reading “Battlefield America has the potential, to fail”
Dark Shadows had talented actors, namely Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter & Michelle Pfeiffer, but I felt as if I was watching a low budget independent film that went straight to DVD, far from impressive. I’m not sure how to describe it. Johnny Depp and company has always won me over whenever they work with Tim Burton (my support dates back to Edward Scissorhand), but … Continue reading Tim Burton’s Latest Should Remain In The ‘Shadows’
I watched the Peter Berg alien/action flick a few days ago before it actually premiered in the states. And I’m glad I didn’t spend any money to watch it because as much as I love Taylor Kitsch, his performance wasn’t super fantastic. However, the action did stir up my adrenaline. Also, Rihanna did well not talking too much and leaving it all for the battlefield, or should I say waters.
Aside from the fight to save earth from these ugly ass alienistic beings, the storyline wasn’t as strong, and no one was believable. For example, when Taylor’s brother died right before his eyes, his reaction was a bit too subtle to convince me he was in pain. I mean, dude’s ship was up in flames, but Taylor’s face looked like he was at the Oscars, simply bored. Maybe its me, and if it is then by all means set me straight. Continue reading “‘Battleship’ Didn’t Sink, Not All The Way”
I was never one for ‘The Avengers,’ mainly because I’m a fan of DC Comics. However, Captain America, The Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow, Thor, Hawkeye, and Nick Fury (if I missed anyone forgive me. Like Iive previously stated, I never followed them as a kid) combined forces to conquer the weekend box office. And victorious they are. The Marvel classic managed to score a whopping 200.3 million opening in the U.S. alone, beating out last year’s final installment in the ‘Harry Potter’ series’ 169.2 million.
