We Bought a Zoo (2011)
I know it's a little late, but after seeing this movie only got to 7.2, it makes me feel obliged to let you know how beautiful it is. From beginning to end you get a mixture of bitter-sweet feelings, seeing a family trying to overcome a death by starting from scratch. All these feelings portrayed in a tiger (Sparr) and the incredible soundtrack by Jonsi,make this a must-see movie. I honestly wasn't expecting much when I went to see it, and since then I've watched it 3 times. You'll laugh, you'll cry, it's a bit of a cliché but it's the truth, at least for me. If you love animals, and people, you'll love this movie. And I'm sure a lot of us have lost someone we loved, and struggled with all our being to get over it, hanging on to the people who loves us and are right next to us. It really is a movie filled with hope, and sometimes we need just that.
Battle Los Angeles (2011)
What's up with all the negativity with this movie?I really loved it, I actually didn't go see it to a movie theater thinking it sucked,but its really good, everyone complains about the plot,and I know its no Inception, you won't see it 3 times because of its awesomeness, but its a really good movie about the military, and I think some situations like dealing with loss of marines or facing the fact that you have to retire is something that marines go through. As a war movie I actually liked it, it was fast paced and it nailed you to your seat. I think the reviews are being really unfair, I have no idea what you were expecting out of this movie, but I truly recommend it. It sort of reminded me to Medal of Honor Tier 1, showing how much important team work is in war and your own loyalty to your squad.
World War Z (2013)
what is up with the haters?!
I don't know why people don't like this movie. One thing I do have to confess is that I haven't read the book yet, im planning to though, but even then I don't think I'll bother comparing it taking into account that the writer said the only thing they took from the book was the movie's name. The movie was just very well done. I came in expecting an action flick,and encounter a movie that kept me to the edge of my seat till the very end. Taking into account the fact that horror movies these days suck,I was just really glad to feel like that watching a movie again,all the tense moments and the creepy moments are excellent and couldn't relax till the end of the movie. The zombies are great,im more of a classic zombie type of person, but these ones just really crept me out.The movie was fast paced,and I was satisfied with the ending. Great zombie movie.
Winter's Bone (2010)
That's what the title of this movie should have been. An hour and 40min of NOTHING. Why does this movie have so many good reviews?! There's only one line of the whole script that I liked, but the rest...Jesus,such a disappointment. I even read a review from a guy that lives in that place and says it's nothing like what the movie portrays. I can't even write a long review cause there's nothing to write about. Just don't waste your time on it, it is really not a good movie, maybe the actors are good but it's not even worth any of your time. It's slow, it doesn't even qualify as drama, and there's nothing that makes you wanna keep watching it. Just don't.
New Year's Eve (2011)
I don't think I understand people at all. I watched it despite all the bad reviews and I didn't regret it. I'm starting to think people are really bitter, it's a really sweet movie about new years and how people feel around that time of the year, it actually gave me a warm feeling, so yes, it's not a deep smart full of effects movie, but sometimes people need a movie like this, I'm all against unchallenging movies, but I don't think this was the case at all. It's the perfect new year movie, that gives you hope for the year to come and live everyday fully. The variety of characters is okay, as you get to know them enough to see a little bit of yourself in them or not,and it's really interesting to see what different people go through at that time of the year and how they feel and what they hope to change. It really is a warm,hopeful movie, at least that's the way I saw it.Sometimes we need to take a break and take a deep breath, that's the movie.
Rise of the Guardians (2012)
I wasn't expecting much out of this movie,but wow!just wow. I read somewhere that it's like a kid version of Avengers,and it truly is. The CGI is unbelievable,the director too, visually this movie is stunning, sandman, the tooth fairy,everything is so beautifully done. The story is also really good, with more character depth than I really expected. The personality of each character is very unique and very original, I fell in love with all of them, even with sandman,who doesn't speak at all. The plot itself is really simple, bad guy who tries to ruin everything and is stopped by the good guys, but it really works that way. I don't think you can get bored at any point during this movie, it has a great pace and,again, great visuals. It has some really LOL moments too, and some emotional parts, it really has it all in a very innocent and sweet way. I don't think anyone can walk out of the theater feeling unsatisfied. So just go and see it, if you have kids,take them too!
Man of Steel (2013)
And THIS is how you make a Superman movie,folks
I went to watch this movie being aware of the hype and having some expectations of my own taking into account that it was in the hands of Nolan and Snyder. That being said, Superman is not my favorite superhero but its one that deserves a worthy movie, which I've been expecting for a long time now. And I must say it blew my mind.Everything you might want out of a Superman movie,its right there. It's action packed,it's fast paced, and the introduction in Krypton was already worth my money. I thought that being the first Superman movie again and having to go through the introduction again would make it slow but they handled it amazingly well. The cast is extremely well chosen,and Cavill makes a perfect Superman. I also loved how we get to see a villain that is,well, evil, instead of some poor misunderstood guy that takes it out on everyone. We get a villain that truly believes in his cause and doesn't care about the rest.Superman finally gets the movie it deserves, im just so glad that it happened and im gonna watch it again really soon.
Fruits Basket (2001)
I'll have to admit..I wasn't expecting much out of FB, but when I watched it..I just couldn't stop!! 2 recommendations: first AND MOST IMPORTANT...READ THE MANGA!!!, it's so so much better and the story continues a lot more and it's even more awesome...I was so glad with the anime that started the manga (I only did that for NANA and now FB) and I was so happy..the story is much more complete (about the characters feelings, about the 12th juunishi,they also tell the story of how Toru's mom met his dad,and a lot of other things,characters that are missing in the anime, and connections between each other that are also lacking), with a lot more character development and you end up 5 times happier than with the anime, easily. Second of all, please watch the anime subbed, not dubbed, because the English voice SUCK, there, I said it, they suck. Now...about the story, it's great, if you like bittersweet, slice of life anime/mangas, you will definitely love this, it makes you cry and laugh a bunch of times..and although the story is fictional, you can relate with the emotions of the characters really well. They story is about a girl who's parents are dead and she ends up living with two guys that are cursed by the spirits of the animal zodiacs,but I guess you all know that already :) believe me, there much,much much to Fruits Basket than what you think there is.
So..I went to see Brave a little confused because there were a lot of people saying it sucked, and a lot of people saying it was excellent. I must say I loved the movie, i know people are disappointed because the trailer showed a girl with an arrow and they were expecting a more epic movie,I was one of them, I was expecting an epic movie. However, I wasn't disappointed with the result, Brave is a beautiful movie,to say the least. The CGI is incredible, and the landscape is gorgeous. I know most people say its great because the princess doesn't end up with a prince, which is a great aspect of the movie, however, I think the most important thing is the fact that they show that you can pursuit your own happiness without depending on somebody else to do it, you can be happy trying to fulfill your own personal dreams, and see where life takes you. Apart from this, which I believe is the main message of the movie, it has some very funny characters and very likable, of course the mother-daughter issue is one we have all probably went through. Another of pixar and Disney's greatest.
Peter Jackson should be the only one allowed to make movies out of books ever
This movie was so EPIC i'm speechless. I went with high expectations because Peter Jackson is awesome, but man, they weren't high ENOUGH. I couldn't see any flaw in this movie at all, they do change the way some events happened, but they're details and don't really change the story, actually you can tell they were needed.Jackson also adds some information, but he did say beforehand that he would, and is taken from other Tolkien stories, and as I haven't read them, I was very happy with the change because they were things I didn't know. The way the movie starts is very clever, and the whole introduction before the journey is almost exactly like the book, which I enjoyed very much. The fights scenes, just exactly as LOTR are INCREDIBLE,very well done, and with some funny moments as well. The cast is flawless, I think every actor portrays their character to perfection, I was happy with all the acting choices. The part of the book they picked to end the movie was great, the book though is basically divided into three main events, so it was somewhat predictable, but the scene they made to end the movie was perfect!!. So Basically if you're a Tolkien fan, or just LOTR-Hobbit fan you'll be puking rainbows of epicness throughout the movie.I had the luck to go to the premiere, but i'm obviously gonna go watch it again on IMAX.
