The Greatest Film of All Time!!!!
I could not believe my eyes! This movie is a super good masterpiece! And I know this cause I'm a big boy, 11 years old! And my brother who is 12 years old agrees! This movie is much better than that boring Godfather movie than my daddy loves! I mean what!!! Why would you like such a slow boring movie that doesn't have explosions?! I might sound nerdy but here goes, I will prove the fact that this movie is so amazing!! Also I will tell you about how Transformers is cool and Ninja Turtles is evil!!!
First of all, the ACTING! Very very good acting! The Chinese man was so funny (my daddy says he's Korean but he's stupid because he likes The Godfather!) but at the same time very realistic (woops what a big word) and Sheeya LaBeef (woops what a silly name) was incredible and showed how scary and dangerous it would be if robots came and started destroying everything! And his girlfriend was very good too! She showed how hot and sexy a girl would be if she was only wearing undies!!!
Second of all, the STORY! The story was so complex and smart, also not very long and understandable (woops, sorry guys I'm very good at English because I got a B+) so after the movie I ended I felt sad because the best movie ever was over! So much cool action! Like the big spaceship and explosion and the big octopus robot that was killing the big building! Yeah some parts of the story was boring like the parts where it showed us what was gonna happen next! I mean come on! Focus on the special effects cause that's what makes the stories and the ideas in the movies work! Stories are about EXPLOSIONS! And The Godfather did not have explosions! And I'm pretty sure because I haven't seen The Godfather but it looks boring and boring movies don't have EXPLOSIONS!
Third of all, the ROBOTS! Wow the robots are so cool and I want one and so does my brother! The robots are so cool like Bumblebee I love Bumblebee I have a Bumblebee toy but I was playing with it in the toilet because he was going on a mission to the sewers to defeat the ninja turtles and so I flushed the toilet! But Bumblebee never came back! This is why I hate the Ninja Turtles! They killed Bumblebee! And Bumblebee was cool!
Anyways even though there is war and hungry people in the world it doesn't matter because this very good movie taught us that the Transformers will come and save us one day! I'm looking forward to that day! They're coming aren't they? In fact I'm going to ask Mr. Jenkins, my science teacher! He's the smartest man in the world!
But good bye everyone! Hope you have fun reading my review of the greatest movie ever and I hope you do not watch boring Godfather!!!
Super 8 (2011)
This film proves you don't need plastic surgery to feel young again.
If you haven't seen it yet, don't be fooled by the trailers or TV spots. It's not about the 'thing'. That's why 'Super 8' let me down in the well established subplot. The mystery that had the most hype around it was let down by an ending that was rushed and didn't match the superb, first three quarters. Then again, though this subplot of the story was the most focused on, that didn't matter, cause there were so many other things to love about this throwback to old Spielberg.
The characters were well developed throughout the entire film. Joel Courtney, who plays the protagonist Joe, had never acted before. And look at the performance he put up! The real star however is Elle Fanning, who plays Alice. She does tremendously within the diversity of the film. The other children and Kyle Chandler, who plays Joe's father Jackson, were all fantastic too. The contribution of these actors who are not so high profile was a highlight of this movie.
Aside from the monster and blowing up of crap, what I adored was adventure, something that every kid wanted back when there wasn't Call of Duty. The story of the protagonists provokes great memories that we all had. Also, there is a human element that is delivered through Joe and Jackson's point of view. Which I wouldn't want to spoil.
Finally, don't let the ending get you down. Super 8 does in fact lives up to its anticipated monster mayhem. The attacks were extremely frightening, especially the intense bus scene. We cannot forget the stunning, unforgettable train crash that is by far the greatest action sequence this year.
Overall, this film started off like a masterpiece, but you should have particular expectations in order to enjoy it for all it has.
Be prepared for a scary, funny, touching, action-packed movie that will make you feel young all over again. Super 8 proves to be the best film this summer.
Hobo with a Shotgun (2011)
Grindhouse AND Art-house
Hobo With a Shotgun easily disguises itself as a cheesy, over-the-top action flick that aims for entertainment rather than something symbolic. Unexpectedly, you find the film something that can be looked through what it's intending to be.
Sure, it's that same old message about society again. But the message is brutalized, and answered with a 12 gauge (or whatever the hell it's called, I'm not a gun expert) as a voice to even the dumbest of them all. Instead of 30 minutes of yawn- worthy dialogue, it shoots straight into bloodshed. Wow, an *entertaining* message.
Rutger Hauer and Molly Dunsworth make great leads, managing to make sweet chemistry. You definitely feel out to them, as their situations intensify to sadder, gorier conclusions. The rest of the cast are just as great.
This is what I love about these kind of movies. They just have a simple idea that grows and grows with every scene. Hobo With a Shotgun is fun, bloody and even touching.
Try and note the Hobo's brilliant speech at the hospital.
Scream 4 (2011)
I held my pee to see the entire movie. I made the the right choice.
Before taking one of the longest leaks in my life, I saw the fourth installment to Wes Craven's horror franchise, Scream. I absolutely loved the first one, I thought it was one of the best horror films ever. I did not like Scream 2 however, and have no intention to see the third one.
Surprisingly, the latest sequel almost beats the first, ridding of what predictability it proposes, accompanied by gory deaths and great twists.
One of the best things about Scream 4 was that it had the most humor out of the other entries in the series. Finely making use of its clichés, the comedic spirit of Scream is plentiful.
The actors are brilliant too. Considering that most of them are relatively young, their very own scenes are made watchable. This made a lot of their deaths a little emotionally intense.
Most importantly it is entertaining. If this is the first Scream film you would see, there's a well chance that new fans of the saga would spawn. If you're already familiar with the films, you may get a mixed reaction for some parts. But most of it is great, and it is one of the year's overall best movies.
Sucker Punch (2011)
Impressive, energetic, visually brilliant... But not good.
When you cannot be bothered watching anymore critically acclaimed dramas about cocaine or politicians, you decide to inject a little more of the entertainment factor into yourself, and watch some mindless action movie. With half-naked girls. With guns. Inside robots. Killing orcs. And steampunk soldiers. And demonic samurais. That hold gattling guns. Oh, and dragons too. When these breed together with a more-than-meets- the-eye story, it just gets all flat.
I'll give credit for what director Zack Snyder came up with - In the beginning, it looked like it would all work. It seemed however, he got lazy right after the incredible, slow motion opening scene. The first weakness of Sucker Punch kicks in with unnecessary, cringe-worthy dialog.
From that point, it takes time to introduce everyone and their situation. The girls - Babydoll (Emily Browning), Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), Rocket (Jena Malone), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and Amber (Jamie Chung) all want to escape. So they come up with a plan, a very simple plan - To find a few items that would help them escape. And to get those items, they engage in a distracting dance, which we never see. It is portrayed as a highly stylized action sequence. The sad thing is - despite the fact that they look excellent - they aren't excellent. They do work well with the plot, but that isn't important. The plot did not give any motivation whatsoever for the girls to act so violent.
Sucker Punch is not the film I wanted it to be. It almost worked, but it was rushed in terms of execution. Snyder proved how visionary he is with his earlier films, 300, and Watchmen. He can direct, that's for sure, but he struggles with the writing. With Christopher Nolan, I'm sure he can make the upcoming Superman: Man of Steel a success.
Hilarious, witty, and one of the best TV shows out there... Just kidding.
It seems some of these positive reviewers just can't accept a negative opinion can they? I have to be honest - I have lived in New Zealand all my life, and I think this show sucks.
For instance, it isn't funny or smart. It uses stale insults, racial slurs, and witless comebacks for jokes. Though that isn't the case in some moments of the show, this is what this its like most of the time.
Also, it only aims for banal humour rather than exploring other emotional views. Whether to shed a tear or feel a rush of astonishment, it has nothing to offer but its so-called 'comedy'.
As well as having terrible writing and all, completely annoying characters, bro'Town is such a tasteless show that there is nothing more to talk about it, apart from its humour always turning into an epic fail.
I know much more people respect the show in a way that I don't, but trying to argue with a differing opinion makes you seem like a bro'Town character - "If you don't like this show I'll beat you up!"
Vampires Suck (2010)
Did what it had to do - Make fun of Twilight!
Being directed by the directors/writers of films such as the Scary Movie films, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, etc., I knew that Vampires Suck won't be good at all, and just when I was getting tired of these kind of films, I didn't need it to. I only wanted to see this because it parodies the crappiest crap in the history of crap literature and crap film. I saw it, didn't really like it, but I was surprised - It made fun of Twilight, yet it was better than it in every single way! Like I do with the other spoof films, I only watched this for some hilarity (which some of you should do instead of bashing it). I couldn't help but burst out laughing at all the jokes, even if some of them were predictable. It doesn't only parodize Twilight, but pokes a tongue at the monotony of teenagers girls who are all manipulative narcissists, or a soldier of "Team Jacob".
Compared to the forced acting in Twilight, the acting in this was Leonardo DiCaprio good. Their timing was perfect, they actually had facial expressions and varied their voice. Cough cough, Kristen. Cough cough.
The good thing is that it was less boring than Twilight. It didn't waste its time on boring, senseless conversations - It was more "action-packed", it had more blood, the vampires actually seemed like vampires, and yes - You will see its astonishing horrible special effects that you always find in the other spoof films! Futheremore, the ending was epic!!! Let's just put it at that - One of the greatest film endings of all time...
I think this is the second best spoof movie that I have seen (Spaceballs) being the first. You should give it a try, you won't be disappointed if you know what's coming.
