so many jokes just...
fall flat. This movie was not very funny. When the funniest thing is a guy pooping in a hat, you know you've got problems with your film.
The movie is a about coward sheep herder, Albert, whom loses his girl, Louise, to a guy whom specializes in mustaches. He has a best friend whose girlfriend is a hooker but doesn't mind. A beautiful girl, Anna, shows up and Albert takes an interest. Albert agrees to a duel with Louise's new guy and Anna says she'll teach Albert how to shoot. Now a lot of the jokes depict people dying in crazy ways, but they really don't work. And of course there is a bad guy that shows up at the end and Albert shows how smart he is.
FINAL VERDICT: Skip it.
another road trip comedy
I think some of these reviews are being too hard on Tammy. Sure it's not the best, but I found it amusing. Melissa Mccarthy plays her usual crass, swearing, and crazy character in Tammy. In this movie, she loses her job, goes on a road trip with alcoholic grandma, meets a guy, and gets closer with her granny.
I thought Tammy getting fired and messing with the hamburgers was pretty good, as well as robbing the fast food place and getting her pies, and leaving the jail with her dad was funny. You have to find it at least amusing.
FINAL VERDICT: It was OK, if you like white trash comedies, you should like this.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
As far as I'm concerned...
Toby McGuire will always be Spiderman. I wasn't expecting much since I didn't think the last Spiderman was very good and I got about what I expected. And this time, I thought the special effects weren't even that good because it was just too cartoony looking. With all the Matrix slow-mo and Spidy dodging bullets and flying around, it just looked more like animation.
In this sequel, Spiderman faces Electro and the Green Goblin yet again. One thing, they could have had anyone play Electro because most of his screen time is when he's been transformed and blue and not even looking like a real person. No need to give Jamie Foxx a big pay check. And could they have had anymore ridiculous, fake looking electric eels.
And about half the film is Peter and Gwen's "sticky" relationship situation. It just makes for a boring storyline. Also Electro has no real motivation for hating Spiderman other than Spidy forgot his name. Just silly. At least Harry got a good costume for the Goblin this time.
FINAL VERDICT: Don't pay to watch this. I saw it on cable. I think it is only good for background noise. I wouldn't recommend anyone run out to see it.
old people rule....
that was what I got out of this movie because the old people come out on top. Mac and Kelly are your average couple with a baby living the dream. Then something "awful" happens, a fraternity moves in next door. Now since this is just a regular neighborhood, I find it hard to believe that a frat could just set up shop there. Anyways, Mac and Kelly try to make good with hottie president, Teddy. But the noise gets to be too much so they start complaining. What isn't believable is that none of the other neighbors seem to be bothered by the loud parties.
Anyways, Mac and Kelly come up with schemes to try to get the frat to move but of the course the frat strikes back when they learn what they are doing. And I thought it was rather funny, like the hidden air bags, the baby at the ER, batman discussion.
FINAL VERDICT: If you want to see a raunchy comedy, then I think this would be a decent choice.
The Fault in Our Stars (2014)
it was too predictable
I had never read the book nor knew much about the movie before watching, but I just knew whom was going to die about 15 minutes in, and that is the fault with this film.
Hazel is a girl fighting cancer and goes to a support group. There she meets Gus, a very upbeat boy just 1 year older than her whom tells the group he's been cancer free over a year. Gus starts up conversation with Hazel and the next thing you knew they are calling each other and spending time together. A lot of their discussions center around Hazel's favorite book and what happened to the characters in the end. Hazel begins to let her guard down and realize she should enjoy her life till it's over.
Gus uses his "special" wish to take Hazel to Amsterdam to meet the author of her favorite book, but everything ends in disappointment. And at this time you already have guessed what is coming.
FINAL VERDICT: It was an OK drama, but movies that try to feed on tragedy so people think they are good are not my favorite. But if you like to cry, definitely check out this movie.
Deliver Us from Evil (2014)
if demons and exorcisms are up your alley...
then this movie is for you. Eric Bana plays detective Sarchie, whom has a radar for "bad" things. On a case, he encounters several people connected to this crazy looking painter. One woman whom threw her child into the mote inside the lion enclosure at a zoo and an ex-vet that beat up his wife. He discovers this weird message being covered up by the painter. Along the way, he meets a priest, Mendoza, that believes the woman was possessed. Of course, Sarchie doesn't believe at first, but too many weird things happen, like the woman going cannibal on his arm and knowing "marvin". The priest says the message is a portal for a demon to enter the world.
Finally they catch the painter, after he's done something to Sarchie's family and must perform an exorcism. I thought the exorcism was done well and seemed plausible.
FINAL VERDICT: This is based on a true story, so that makes it creepy. I wonder how much was embellished for Hollywood. Any ways, it's a good thriller and I recommend it.
great visual effects, but the story has its faults
This movie was OK, but the main fault with it was predictability. You knew from the start, the young boy, was going to turn selfish, that Maleficent would want revenge, and that whom would be required to give true love's kiss. Bringing the Prince into the picture did not add any suspense because you knew that he wasn't true love's kiss.
But the special effects were very good, from the flying of Maleficent into the clouds, to the living trees, the growing black trees. Truly amazing. Also, I loved Angelina Jolie's makeup. The pale face and contour with the red lip looked so good and just make her look like a villain.
FINAL VERDICT: A little dark for really young kids, but I think 10 year olds would enjoy it. I liked the visuals, but I just wished the story could have had more suspense. A lot of adults probably should just skip it.
Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Groundhog Day meets Aliens
I usually think sci-fi movies have too many plot holes, and this one has some, but for the most part it makes sense. Of course, they are using the plot of groundhog day set in an alien invasion. One big plot hole is why didn't Rita leave herself notes so she wouldn't have to repeatedly meet Cage over and over. And the whole part where she and the scientist dude figured out some aliens are Alpha protecting an entity called Omega, was very far fetching. But anyway it was cool to see how Cage improved day to day to get further on the battlefield. Considering we are talking about invading aliens, why did others, like the general, find it so hard to believe Cage and Rita about time travel.
Anyway, it ended how it should with Cage waking up again except this time, things are different.
FINAL VERDICT: Pretty good sci-fi with cool special effects. Definitely one of Cruise's better films in the past 10 years.
Draft Day (2014)
NFL GMs aren't as dumb as depicted in this movie. Kevin Costner plays, Sonny, the new GM of the Browns, taking over for his deceased father. They have the 7th pick but are interested in a hot shot QB that is expected to go No 1. Now Sonny waits till draft day to do a little digging on the QB. As if a GM would wait till the last minute. Anyways he trades 3 NO 1's to Seattle for the NO 1 pick. There's a running back the coach wants and a linebacker with a heart of gold on Sonny's radar.
The draft starts and Sonny selects the linebacker. Other GMs contact him and want to know what is wrong with the QB. They show the new GM of the Jaguars to be a complete idiot. Sonny trades for their NO 1 pick at 6. He then contacts Seattle and says he'll trade 6 for the rest of their NO 1's back and a punt returner. So Seattle excepts and gets the QB for a cheaper price that Sonny never wanted. Sonny gets the running back at 7 plus the punt returner and all the Brown's picks back. So as you can see no GM is that dumb to get played like that.
FINAL VERDICT: I'd say this is for football fans only. It is rather dull and why did Sonny have to have a pregnant co-worker 30 years his junior as a side plot.
this sequel is better than the first film
I actually liked this movie, which was surprising because I thought the first Captain America film was boring and not entertaining. But this was the exact opposite. It had an entertaining plot and you could follow it. The winter soldier was good too with his metal arm. Even the guy flying(Falcon) had good special effects. And I liked how the plot basically let you know from the start that Robert Redford's character was not all he seemed to be.
BTW: Did anyone really believe Fury kicked the bucket? I mean what about the other avenger movies.
FINAL VERDICT: An action movie worth checking out.
