Perfect for the Godzilla fan, not so much for anyone else
This isn't your Daddy's Godzilla flick. It's much more serious.
The main plot focuses on how the US Military (Navy mostly), and a bomb technician, whose mother was killed by a monster, and later his father too (there goes Bryan Cranston's screen time). Ford Brody is a decent main character, whose reaction to everything seems to be helping with the Navy to keep his mind active and to hide his emotion. Just about every other character are one-dimensional, and that's acceptable because the movie is much more about Ford Brody and the monsters than anyone else. The movie also takes a more serious look at the damage by constantly putting children in the way of danger.
Now onto the monsters. Most of the action is very human related, but delivers intensity and kept me on the edge of my seat. The monster fights are not the usual clumsy battles due to CGI, which is also done well. Hype is everything in this movie. The monster fights are teased several times, and almost every Godzilla appearance comes with some cool intro for him.
In summary, normal movie fans will probably get caught up in mediocre to poor acting/dialogue, a relatively simple plot, and the lack of Bryan Cranston. But a Godzilla fan will probably come away refreshed with a much more serious take on their often too-corny-for-his-own-good favorite monster. I can already tell though, this is a movie that would only be good for a couple of views, and any sequel has no chance whatsoever.
Second Glance (1992)
Dude This is like the most epic movie ever. It has like the best line ever. "hey Scotty. Jesus man" But it all depends on on how you pronounce it. "hey Scotty. Jesus man" as is how it was said in the movie "JESUS MAN" as in Jesus man you've got a big spider crawling on your head "JESUS MAAAAAAAAAAAN" as in the new super hero called Jesus Man. But what if Scotty was Jewish or atheist and he was being a jerk. What if Scotty isn't even his real name. What if.... Just remember. Jesus Man! (insert horrible soundtrack here)
On a serious note the movie sucked and did a horrible job of getting its message across. I would give it a 2/10. I only watched it because the Jesus man line went on ray William Johnson. It's worth watching the movie for the Jesus man line. Jesus man.
Detroit 1-8-7 (2010)
Best. Cop. Show. Ever.
All you have to do is watch the pilot. Fantastic acting from all of the actors with a few mistakes in the pilot (which was the only episode not shot in Detroit). But... unless you live in Michigan, no one give a crap about Detroit so the show was cancelled after one season. I don't care about what the NYPD shows think they have, because Detroit 1-8-7 has humor, drama, action, a little bit of romance, and just about everything you look for in a show/movie. With a season finale you want an episode that gives you closure in case the show doesn't air again, but also leaves the show open for another season. I watched the show on Netflix and it will never leave the instant queue. Watch Detroit 1-8-7 and you will find out that it's our city, our rules in Detroit.
The Walking Dead (2010)
I gotta tell you, this is my favorite title ever. I say title, because it's not a movie, but if it was, it would be my favorite movie. I'm not a crazy zombie fan. I've never played a zombie video game, and I've never even seen Night of the Living Dead. However this is not your average zombie title. This is probably the most realistic TV series ever. And it's about zombies. It's a no-holds-barred, kill-or-be-killed world. It is the sad story where the children don't always come out unharmed. Each character is unintentionally destroying who he/she is. No other TV show, o movie, has been able to make a Horror-Drama-Action-Thriller. No character is minor, and every death is. The only time you can get me to shut up is Sunday at 9:00 PM. I have the hardest time going to sleep on Sunday because I'm always stunned by the show. The only other title I've ever seriously rated 10/10 is Die Hard. If you've never watched the show, then go to www.amctv.com and read the summaries. Grab the popcorn because The Walking Dead Season 2 resumes this February. Lock 'n Load.
Interesting, but sometimes dry...
With a surprising pace, Archangel developed a promising story, and continued to be interesting throughout the film, with a few moments of lazy writing. However, after the shootout towards the end of the film, the movie stayed dry until the last scene. I heard some complaints about the ending, but what else did you want them to do?
Why do people love the Raiders of the Lost Ark scene where Indy shoots the Swordsman? Because it was just right.
Basically, if you love this history period, and you can sit through a drama/thriller, then this film is for you.
6.7/10 I'll leave it at that.
My expectations were up to high. I was in a hotel room with the rest of my family. There were little kids involved so the movie selected Megamind. I laughed once or twice. I was bored half to death. It was more or less a film about an outcast looking for friendship.
Brad Pitt's name was put up high on the list of actors to attract you but he as at the most 10 minuets of screen time.
Will Ferreal gave it his best but he seemed out of place to me. Kids will love it because to them any Dream Works film is amazing (Maybe not one like Saving Private Ryan). But really if you only have kids like 6 or 7, this is good for them. If you've got kids in that age group and older kids like 8 or 9 then only the young kids will enjoy it. Pick one that will appeal to all ages.
The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
Your Future Has Been Adjusted..... for the Better!!!!!!!
This film may come as a surprise if you have only watched the TV spots. The commercial makes it look like a Bourne/Bond experience where the hero is fighting against a corrupt government agency. Wrong! The Adjustment Bureau is a romance thriller depicting The Chairman (God) sending case workers (angels) to "adjust" peoples' lives when they stray from the plan. I suspect that many churches will be upset about this (ever heard of The Life of Brian?). It leaves some thoughts in your mind as you are lying down in bed trying to go top sleep. Tohmpson of the Adjustment Bureau says that they started off very involved, but then introduced free will. The Dark Ages then took place. Then they (The Bureau)step back in and bring the Renisannce and the Revolutions (Science, Industrial). They stepped back and WWI and WWII plus the Great Dpression. It puts a Thriller (not ACTION thriller), romance, and some comedy all rolled in one. The Adjustment Bureau gives you a four out of five stars adventure you can't miss! Just a thought here though, you should probably know this is a love story overall so if you are expecting an all out thriller than you should be prepared for the pulsating theme of romance.
The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)
Hold on super tight when you watch this film!!!! Following the storyline of The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum puts the perfect conclusion to the legendary series. The title might take a few moments to figure out, and the movie's action sequences are confused at times but try not to think about it. Matt Damon adds so much integrity to Jason. I totally felt that he was just a guy seeking forgiveness for what he's done. The action sequences leave you breathless and astonished. The fights don't look planned out. You could watch the film one million times and never be able to tell the Matt is expecting the punches. I never expected the end. !!!!!!! Spoilers beyond this point!!!!! I seriously thought that Vosen had really shot Bourne (excuse me I meant David Webb) and Jason was dead. I'm glad that Nicky was in the scene when it was revealed he was alive. I had forgotten about her. I felt that the series was complete when the asset lowered his gun and "Look at us. Look at what they make you give." All I have to say is "Look at this film. Look at what they make you enjoy."
