Crop And Save
John Hancock (Will Smith) is a superhero with a complex: he hates everyone. He suffers from amnesia, and can't remember parts of his life. He drinks and he's not the best example of a superhero. Then comes executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), whose life is saved by Hancock, and he vows to help Hancock turn into a reputable person of society. His wife, Mary (Charlize Theron) seems to have a connection with Hancock as well.
As Hancock turns a new leaf and becomes a superhero people can count on, a shocking revelation sends Hancock's life into a tailspin as he learns who he truly was, and is, and his connections with people that seem random but really aren't.
This wasn't the best superhero movie to date, but it wasn't the worst. The storyline was compelling although not enough time was given to fully maximize the potential of it. Will Smith, as always, did a fantastic job, but the whole film seemed choppy and out of focus with the overall theme. Nonetheless, it was still a decent action flick.
Tropic Thunder (2008)
Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller) is an action movie star who hasn't had a hit in awhile, Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black) is a comedy actor, and Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.) is an Academy Award winning actor. Together they join forces in one of the most expensive action movies ever made, and it seems to be a dud. They travel to Vietnam, and, unbeknownst to them, become entwined in a war that's actually reality.
With hilarious cameos by Matthew McConaughey and Tom Cruise, "Tropic Thunder" is one of the most creative comedies to come around in awhile. It's very anti politically correct, and Ben Stiller (as producer, director, writer, and star) doesn't hold back the punches. Truly a daring, hilarious film that shouldn't be missed.
Years in the future, Earth is a desolate wasteland. No one is around - except for Wall-E, a robot designed to make cubes out of trash. His only friend is a cockroach, until one day a spaceship comes, and EVE appears. EVE is another robot sent to Earth to find signs of life. She and Wall-E connect, and soon Wall-E is taken aboard the ship and must save mankind from itself.
I don't think this is a good film for children, because there's a lot of 'downtime' in it (not a lot of dialogue or action). However, I think it is Pixar's best film to date. Wall-E is just so cute and curious, which leads to hilarious consequences. And his relationship with EVE is something of classic cinema, bringing back the age-old courtship and slow romance. And MO is absolutely hilarious. I was laughing so hard I could hardly breathe. Truly one of the best films of the year.
A man is abducted by aliens and reprogrammed to end the human race, with a power drill. He goes on a killing rampage, targeting a band, some loners, and a group of teenagers out for a good time. He's doing this so he can end the human race, and implant alien chips in some of their brains, supposedly.
This movie is lower than B-rated. The effects are laughable, the aliens are pretty much cardboard cutouts of other aliens because they never move or anything, and the overall storyline is completely ridiculous. Aliens who want to take over the world by implanting a chip in one man, giving him a drill and having him go at it? And not even going after big people in government? Totally lame film.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)
During the Clone Wars, Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) has kidnapped Jabba the Hut's young son, and tries to blame the Jedi for doing so.
Obi-Wan (James Arnold Taylor) sends Anakin (Matt Lanter) and his padawan learner Ahsoka (Ashley Eckstein) to find the child and return him to Jabba so the Jedi could make an alliance with him to allow their trade ships to pass by.
This is not a true Star Wars movie, because it is without Frank Oz, who's always supplied the voice of Yoda. It was dummed down to a childish nature (think Episode I, only worse). But, since it was an animated film, you have to appreciate the fact that not everything is going to be like the live action films are. The dialogue was weak, but the banter between Anakin and Ahsoka was pretty humorous. All in all, not as horrible as people say, but it's nowhere near what the real life "Star Wars" movies are.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008)
He's back! Hellboy (Ron Pearl), along with Liz Sherman (Selma Blair) and the others are on a mission to prevent the dreaded and unstoppable Golden Army from rising again to destroy mankind.
Hundreds of years after forming a pact with the humans, Prince Nuada (Luke Goss) wants revenge on the humans for destroying his forest. However, his sister, Princess Nuala (Anna Walton) doesn't want this to happen and turns to Hellboy to help stop her brother before its too late.
Del Toro delivers yet another stunning epic action film, filled with satirical humor, unbelievable effects and spellbinding fighting. Everything you could ever want in an action film is in this one.
Kung Fu Panda (2008)
Panda Po (Jack Black) loves the Chinese martial arts. He's followed the furious five: the Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Monkey (Jackie Chan), Mantis (Seth Rogen), Viper (Lucy Liu) and Crane (David Cross) his whole life, while he works at his father's noodle restaurant.
Then, one fateful day, he becomes the Dragon Master, and is trained by the five's Master, Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), to combat his biggest foe - Tai Lung (Ian McShane), a warrior Shifu raised from birth who turned evil after not being crowned the Dragon Master.
Now Shifu has very little time to make Po into a warrior, but he slowly discovers that the path to becoming a warrior is different for every animal.
The message that the movie gets across is that you don't have to be someone you're not to be someone great. Po is a fat slacker, but he moves into his destiny and learns the way of the marital arts, and is able to stand up not only to the other warriors, but his own doubts as well. Truly an uplifting film filled with comedy, heart, and kickbutt martial arts action!
20 Years After (2008)
20 years after the world comes to an end, Sarah (Azura Skye) is pregnant and about to give birth to the first baby in 15 years. She is pursued by people who want her baby, and she tries to find the mysterious voice on the radio (Joshua Leonard), who could help her.
Think "Children of Men" only without the great acting, effects and storyline. All this film is is a boring, lackluster hour and a half of worthless crap. Azura Skye was hardly in the film, and when she was acting, it was so quiet and monotone that it lacked any sense of urgency. And Michael (Leonard) is your typical end-of-the-world antagonist who talks about how life was like before it all happened. I would've loved to see what happened, I bet it would've been way more entertaining.
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer (2007)
Jack Brooks (Trevor Matthews) is a college student with some severe anger issues. His family was brutally murdered when he was a child by a monster, and now he takes out his anger on everything and everyone.
So when his professor (Robert Englund) begins to show signs of monsterism, he learns he has to control his rage and use it for good instead of evil, and fight the creatures that have been haunting his nightmares ever since that fateful night.
Truly earns its B-rated rating, but what was cool about it was that it didn't focus on crappy B-rated CGI graphics. In fact, 0% of the film was CGI. The monsters were actually decently put together, and although the storyline was lacking, it was somewhat watchable...if for only one time.
While creating a newer, faster subway system in New York, the developer accidentally awakens a centuries old evil - really, really big bugs. Now its up to a FBI agent and a doctor to bring an end to the carnage and terror that these prehistoric bugs present.
The box cover said this was a Sci-Fi original movie, so I knew not to expect anything special going into it. Still, I was amazed at how poorly everything was done. They brought in the worst B-actors imaginable (Antonio Sabato Jr., Angie Everhart), threw in the lamest dialogue imaginable, and added a bunch of poorly constructed CGI bugs. Even for the Sci-Fi channel, this is a very lame outing.
