The Avengers (2012)
Iron Man, Captain, Hulk, Thor - Great Movie!
Aside from The Dark Knight Rises, this was probably the most waited movie of the year, was it the movie of the year? No, but it was still fantastic. Up there, there's a not very certain rate of this movie, but here's a true review of this movie. The Avengers was not so good as I expected to be, that I can admit, but I still loved it, I admired that Joss Whedon did a great job with the characters screen time, it all had a balance, so no character seems distant, that was a very important element of the movie, and they succeeded at not blow it up, that was a great thing they did. The Avengers is the reunion of Marvel's greatest heroes (Yeah, unfortunately there's no Spider man, well, he's probably only amazing for them and they needed great), so this movie needed memorable action scenes. Well, along the movie, there's some great action scenes, but they can't be compared to what they saved for the end, it was almost 20 minutes of fantastic action scenes, featuring Iron Man (at his best), Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye. The special effects were tremendous, as they shoul be and they brought a very significant and pleasunt quantity of humour in this movie, that was really helpful and enjoyable.
Downey once again suits up as Iron Man, and he was amazing once again, bringing to the screen he's amazing sense of humour and smartness. Chris Evans wasn't at Donwey's same calibre, but he was still solid. Mark Ruffalo was amazing as The Hulk, his performance was very solid. Chris Hemsworth fired some good jokes along the movie, nothing more than that, I don't appreciate Thor that much. Scarlett Johansson was amazing and hot here as the Black Widow, which is a really strong character, by the way. Jeremy Renner was too distant, Tom Hiddleston wasn't an amazing choise to play the villain, Clark Gregg was great, Cobie Smulders was a surprise, I was seeing Robin turning into a serious secret agent, oh and L. Jackson was also great with his Nick Fury.
Overall, The Avengers is a great blockbuster, that didn't fail, Whedon's direction made this happening so good. Of course the story isn't amazing, they didn't care about an amazing story, only the union of these heroes. But The Avengers is not a perfect fairy tale, it also has its flaws, like, the long second act that was mostly placed at a submarine and weird enemies that bored he viewer when shown, but aside from that, The Avengers is a fantastic movie, that succeeds at uniting all these heroes together amazingly, it was amazing to seem all work together, The Avengers is not easily forgotten. Highly recommended, oh, and by the way geeks, this is the new geek porn.
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Epic. Unforgettable. Masterpiece
The Dark Knight Rises is Nolan's new masterpiece, a movie captures perfection in the acting, in the story, in the special effects, in the direction and in the soundtrack. I think The Dark Knight Rises is the best movie of the amazing trilogy (yes, I've seen The Dark Knight), why? Well, let's start with the acting:
Christopher Nolan brought a handful of amazing actors, some of them who star in his previous movie Inception. The people here are Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who had a fantastic performance, Marion Cottillard, Anne Hathaway, giving live to hard-personality Catwoman very well and Tom Hardy, playing the intense character Bane perfectly, dominating it physically and psychologically. Christian Bale is once again amazing with his Batman, Gary Oldman keeps acting well, Mr. Freeman also keeps being solid and Master Caine is still one of my favorite characters, playing one of the best characters of all time, a character with a big heart and personality, because of Caine.
The plot is amazing, in this series, the first movie is meant to be the BEGINS, then the FALLS and The Dark Knight Rises was meant to be the RISES, so it had to be epic, but it wasn't, it was beyond epic, it had a genially written story with a third act full of surprises and other feelings... because of Nolan, don't have a doubt.
And at last but not least, let's not forget Zimmer's terrific composing of multiple themes that accompanies the movies all along. Bottom line, The Dark Knight Rises is a masterpiece, it's once of my favorites and in a feedback of movies of this year so far, this one is 2nd best movie. Watch it!
Best Movie of All Time
Ted is the BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME! Why? Well, here we go. Seth MacFarlane, the genius guy that created the legendary Family Guy, with a sense of humor that blew everyone away, he also created American Dad and The Cleveland Show, and in these three shows, he voices multiple characters with very different voices and he's just amazing. Seth decided to bring his enormous talent to the big screen. Ted is MacFarlane's first motion picture, where he takes care of the directing, the writing and voicing the hilarious teddy bear. In the end of the year, people will think what was the best movie of 2012, some will say The Dark Knight Rises, some will say The Hobbit, some will say The Avengers, some will say 21 Jump Street and some others, some others like me will say Ted. Ted is a fantastic mash of one of my favorite TV shows Family Guy sense of humor with a very smart plot.
John is an 8 year old kid with no friends at all. One Christmas, his parents give him a teddy bear. He wishes for him to come alive. That wish comes true and 27 years later, John (Wahlberg) and Ted (MacFarlane) are still best friends, they live together and their favorite hobby is smoking pot and watching Flah Gordon. But, John's girlfriend Lori (Kunis) wants them to move on with their lives and get Ted out of the house. John and Ted's friendship will be tested.
No one would not like to see a movie which concept is about a talking teddy bear that swears all the time, smokes pot and has sex with lots of women, including Norah Jones. MacFarlane used Family Guy humor in here, my favorite type of humor and it worked even better in here cause he made this movie rated R (restricTED) and that way he could go even further with the dirty and politically incorrect humor, in this movie we even see a grown man punching a young kid, and only a MacFarlane project could have that. He brought other things from his show, like Mila Kunis (Meg), Patrick Warburton (Joe) and Alex Borstein) and they were all very well used. Now let's talk about the cast, which was a very solid element of the movie, Mark Wahlberg was a superb choice, he keeps surprising me, since The Other Guys, I knew he was amazing with comedy and in here, he was terrific, he just had to make his Bostonian accent have more encases and he had a great performance where he fires off jokes all the time. Mila Kunis, my favorite actress, was also a perfect choice to be the mature of this weird trio, she was very good here and she was also pretty funny and Seth MacFarlane is also amazing voicing Ted, making a voice that sounds a little like Peter Griffin's voice mashed with Brian Griffin's voice and the movie also had amazing cameos. The jokes, well, let me put it this way, Ted is probably the most hilarious movie I've seen, it's a laugh-a-minute movie and each joke is hilarious and I'm a person that usually doesn't feel comfy at laughing at a theater in front of everybody, but this time, I couldn't help it, and although it wasn't that loud, I did laugh a lot, and if I was at home, the windows would break. Botttom line is, if you love Family Guy and MacFarlane's humor, you'll love Ted, it's a heart warming and also raunchy hilarious movie that I just loved, well, let me say it again: TED IS THE BEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME.
Frank: You think you got what it takes?
Ted: I'll tell you what I got.Your wife's pussy on my breath.
Frank: Nobody has ever spoken to me like that before.
Ted: That's because their mouths were full of your wife's box.
Frank: You're hired.
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
On top of this review there's a seven, but the truth is, I don't have a specific rate for this movie, I just think that The Amazing Spiderman is a great movie. From all the blockbuster's that we will have this year, The Amazing Spiderman will be distinguished from all of them by its humor, performances, actor chemistry, entertainment, heart, and of course, by being a spiderman movie.
Before I see it, it took me a little time to want to go see it, cause, I've seen all the previous spiderman movies and when I saw this movie's trailer with Garfield instead of Maguire, I thought to myself, that The Amazing Spiderman was just a stupid remake that I wouldn't to go see. Later, when I was invited to go to the movies, The Amazing Spiderman was an option of the viewing, I saw the new trailers, I read the reviews and it actually got me thinking that I should give it a shot.
I left the theater with a big smile on my face. The Amazing Spiderman is not an untold story, it's very similar to Sam's Spiderman, but it has many good qualities that I did not see in the original Spiderman. First of all, Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) fits better in the suit than Maguire, I admired his performance as the Peter Parker and Emma Stone, who you'd think that plays Mary Jane, actually plays Gwen Stacy, and her performance was also amazing, but I really admired was Garfield and Stone's tremendous chemistry, which was the back bone/heart/soul of the movie. Overall, The Amazing Spiderman wouldn't be the same with these two love birds in the film.
So, my thoughts are: The Amazing Spiderman convinces in the performances and in the amazing CGI effects. The action scenes weren't amazing at the ending but we can still get from a superhero what's most important, a well-told story, good performances by the cast and heroic scenes, and this movie had all of that. Marc Webb did a great job and I'm looking forward for the sequel.
Go watch it.
Project X (2012)
American Pie+The Hangover+Superbad+Chronicle=Project X=Fantastic movie
Project X is epic! Todd Phillips produces it, the director of my favorite comedy movie, The Hangover, the legendary R-rated comedy. Project X is basically sort of the happenings before a hangover, well, it's more about crazy parties that turn into riots. I loved this movie, when I first watched the trailer, I thought this was going to be terrible, but after it was recommended to me, I decided to give it a try and I loved it. It's epic, it's crazy and it beats Chronicle considering that it's also a 'Found Footage' movie. You got to watch it, it's like the party that you'll never have but you can witness, I don't find this movie pointless or dumb at all. Since the very beginning to the very end, Project X is a wild and hilarious experience, I know I'm being a bit lame, but this movie is a crazy way to make the three main characters popular. Oh, and the soundtrack, well, the soundtrack rocks! Watch it if you haven't, one of the best movies of 2012 and one of the best R-rated comedies I've seen since The Hangover, oh, and definitely (so far), the best 'Found Footage' movie I've ever seen. Worth every minute, and by the way, Project also brought the Pursuit Happiness song to my ears. What a fantastic movie... R-rated at its best.
Thomas and his two friends are a group of unpopular teens that no one cares about unless if it's about mocking. Thomas' 17th birthday arrives and he's hosting a party at his house since that date is also his parents' anniversary. His dad leaves clear that he wants 5 people tops and no touching in his Mercedes. His friend Costa hires Dax to film the whole birthday and posts everywhere Thomas' party. When the party arrives, there's not even aproximendately a number of 5 people, but yes 15.000 people, including hot women and cool guys. Thomas will try to have fun and keep it under control, but soon, the party will turn into a riot, oh, and the Mercedes, well, the Mercedes will end up in the swimm... But still, this party will be a game changer for those 3 L's. To the break of dawn, yo!
Dad: I just didn't think you had it in you. Thomas: I know. Sorry I let you down. Dad: No, I literally didn't think you had this in you. So uh, how many people were here?
Thomas: Uh, 15 hundred. Couple thousand maybe. Dad: Wow. Thomas: You should have seen it. It was awesome. Dad: Well, you're still f*beep* Thomas.
Ridley's Big Comeback
Prometheus, where do I even begin for Christ's sake? I loved it. Although it gives us the questions that we want to be given the answers, they did not answer all of them that well, so I for my perspective there will be a sequel with all of that, but that doesn't matter, what matters is that Mr. Scott got back together with space, ships and aliens and he's done a terrific job, I'm serious, you know how much I liked it? I have doubts if Alien or even Aliens is better than Prometheus. That much. Prometheus has a terrific cast, this movie is full of amazing stars, the special effects are breath taking, the soundtrack is amazing and the premise and the story is brilliant genius, so by this I mean that the next time we'll see Prometheus will not be in a sequel, Prometheus, we'll see you at next year's Oscars. Prometheus was also scary, it had Alien(s) scare-caliber and it also had some gross-out scenes, but hey, this is Alien style, right? Sow, go watch it, if you loved Alien and Aliens you watch this right now and don't you dare to download it, it's not just an insult to all the work it was necessary to make Prometheus, you just have to watch it in a theater, cause not even a Blu-ray will give you half the feeling of watching in a theater, hearing the sounds, watching the sets and don't forget the 3D experience, which is just unforgettable, it was well used and it satisfied a lot, oh, and don't forget the fact that almost everyone went to see Alien or Aliens when it was young, so going to watch Prometheus is like a journey to the past with a little bit of future involved. It's so good, that I admit that Prometheus is the 3rd best movie of all time, trust me.
Ridley Scott is genius, his directing was marvelous, he's always amazing with movies, Blade Runner, Alien and Gladiatior showed that his brilliant and Prometheus shows how further he can go directing movies. Nommi Rapace takes the lead, I loved her performance, she was kind of this movie's Ripley and she also had Weaver's acting-caliber, she was truly amazing and I'm super glad they dragged her to Hollywood, she started with a foreign language movie, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, than they brought her to Sherlock Holme's sequel and than she worked her way to the top, she's now in a Ridley Scott directed movie that develops in Alien's same universe. Overall, I truly loved her performance, Noomi is the best. Michael Fassbender is spectacular, he was by far the best played artificial person/robot int the whole Alien saga and including Prometheus, he was excellent and Prometheus showed me that Fass will go far too fast. Charlize Theron had an okay performance, that's all. Idris Elba was fantastic, I loved his role as the captain of the ship, he was amazing and he played a fantastic character. Logan Marshall-Green was great too, I've seen him before and know I definitely know that he's a great actor, his performance was great.
2000's 80's. Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) and (Marshall-Green) is a married scientist couple. When they find some clues about how we were created, they get a ship with a good crew and fly to space so the experience can be done. Most of the crew after 2 years sleeping in the ship finally wakes up because of the arrival to the destination. Jerkan (Elba) is the captain of the ship, Meredith Vickers (Theron) is the arrogant person in charge of the experiment, David is the robot, nearly a person that serves many requests, and the rest of the crew is completed by the Shaw's, Fifeild, Milburn, Ford and Ravel. When the expedition begins, everything starts to go bad and what was supposed to be the search for our beginning, could lead to our end. But will they find the answers of these questions. How were we created? When do we go when we die? They'll try to get those answers, but they'll soon try not too die.
The story is genius. It has some fantastic twists and it has some brilliant happenings. The characterization is also amazing, it's like echoed some actors with Alien's character's egos and it has a few big similarities to Alien, like the slow beginning, but later they finally 'take off' and we have a hell of movie with big thrills, scares and much more. But one of the highlights of Prometheus is the premise about those amazing questions that everyone would like to get the answer but it can't, and although there's many questions unanswered that I though it were going to be answered, in my opinion, will soon be answered, I hope so, by a possible sequel of Prometheus. And now, changing subject, I say it again, Prometheus is not an Alien prequel at all, it even ocurres years before Alien's happenings, I've seen many people thinking that, but it's not, they just share kind of the same universe and some similarities.
Arrested Development (2003)
One of the Best TV shows that I can think of, if not the best...
Arrested Development is a brilliant, hilarious and highly entertaining TV show with brilliant jokes and A+ twists that I would never think of. Anyway, I watched the entire show, I didn't miss an episode and I always had a great time, I can't believe they canceled it, they had Ron Howard's fantastic narrating, the great directing and the extraordinary cast, Jason Bateman, who's just fantastic, Portia de Rossie, that is also enjoyable, Michael Cera playing a tremendous part where he plays a troubled and harmless kid that is desperately in love with his cousin, there's also Will Arnett, who is also amazing, we also have Tony Hale as the unforgettable Buster, we have Jeffrey Tambor playing a tremendous role, so as we have much more good actors in the show and a bunch of amazing cameos. I highly recommend you to see this show, once you watch an episode, there's no way out.
"Now the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together. It's Arrested Development."
Leap Year (2010)
Tx2= Typical and Terrible
What a terrible movie. They are still not aware that this has been made before, no one is, although there's no other version of Leap Year, I felt like I watched all that, the asked kiss from The Proposal, the arrogant American with the guy that mocks her all the time like in The Proposal, etc. This movie is 100% cliché'd, oh and don't forget about the ending, even if I wrote the ending I wouldn't have to write spoiler alert cause right when I watched the trailer I knew how was it going to wined up. Liked about it, well, I was entertained for 5 or 6 minutes during these 100 minutes and I laughed a couple of times, oh, and don't forget the good photography, but, what about the rest? The rest sucked, the premise, the acting, the storyline, the script, this couldn't possibly be worse, I'm tired of this and people who liked it are people that have seen so much of these unrealistic rom-com's that have been losing a few valuable IQ points. By the way, Amy Adams started a wonderful career, she started well with Charlie Wilson's War and with the amazing PG Disney comedy Enchanted, then she started to develop her career a little more and she starred in The Fighter where she left a sample of her big talent, I admired her career, but I can't believe she went for this, I hope this was just an exception, cause Adams is not the type of arrogant girls from rom-com's that at the end fall in love with her lift. About Matthew Goode, well, he was okay, he offered a few good gags like when he mocked the whole concept of the movie, saying that it was the stupidest thing he's ever heard (I laughed a lot about that), so yeah, he was good, so as for Scott, who never fails to make you laugh. Sow, don't watch Leap Year, it completely sucks and by the way, if you want to watch it because you have interest on the ending, well, let me give you a good piece of advice, watch the movie's trailer, take a look at the movie's poster and then go to a movie website, search for Leap Year, find it and take a look at the cast list and see the actor's order, I think you'll be able to get a 'little' idea of what happens at the end.
The Dictator (2012)
Dictator: Manages to make all the rules; The Dictator: Manages to make laugh... a lot!
The Dictator is a fantastic movie. I've seen several movies this year, like This Means War and some others, one of them was The Hunger Games and I mentioned that The Hunger Games was the best movie of the year, well, now, I take it back. Why? Because I watched The Dictator, an offensive, politically incorrect but it's overall a comedy masterpiece and my 2nd favorite movie. It's hilarious and I laughed my ass off, but don't forget that I have a little regret about that, there's a lot of guilty laughs while you watch it, but, well, it's impossible not to laugh. Sacha Baron Cohen was terrific, he should get an Oscar for his performance, his voice, his beard and his ego were just fantastic, I completely loved his performance, he's a master of comedy. Overall, The Dictator is a spoof to politics, The Dictator is brilliant, it has brilliant jokes and fantastic performances by everyone, The Dictator is the movie of the year, whether you believe me or not, it's highly entertaining and it never fails to make you laugh every minute. This movie has no mature scene, only stupidity but we're still able to love it, The Dictator is a comedy classic and I'll never forget it, besides, it's without a doubt the best comedy/movie I've ever seen since Horrible Bosses. Here's a stupid, but also clever movie. The Dictator is hilarious and I say it again, The Dictator is my 2nd favorite movie and it's also (So far), the best movie of the year. I loved it. 2nd Favorite Movie of All Time.
Larry Charles did a terrific job with everything, the director of Borat and Bruno brought (Again) a fantastic R-rated movie with an amazing directing. Sacha Baron Cohen takes the lead as the now iconic character Admiral General Aladeen, his performance was remarkable, he was hilarious and showed us that he was definitely the best person to play this role, I'll never forget his amazing performance and I hope he gets a good award (nomination), Sacha is known from Borat, Bruno and Ali G. Anna Faris was great, her performance was solid and funny, she finally starred in the movie that is neither a Scary Movie nor a bad movie, she was great and a valuable person in this movie's cast, Anna is known from Observe & Report, Cloudy with the Chance of Meatballs and some other movies. John C. Reilly also brings a very pleasant cameo that is enough to still you some laughs, some big laughs, like the racist joke, John is known from Step Brothers, Cyrus and some other movies. The main cast is great but Sacha is really the one who stands out, he was pure genius, but the rest of the cast also delivers good performances and laughs, we have Jason Mantzoukas, Kathryhn Hahn, Megan Fox and Ben Kingsley. Bottom line, The Dictator has a fantastic cast where Cohen has the chance to leave another sample of his giant talent, he was legendary. Terrific cast.
Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) is the dictator of the African country Wadiya. But, he's a bizarre dictator, he's slept with thousands of famous people, including Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan and Oprah, he changed more than 300 hundred words to Aladeen, he always wins the Olimpyc Wadiyan Games and he executes everyone who slightly disagrees or annoys him. Aladeen has to go to America, or UN was going to use military force to destroy Wadiya because of his nuclear program. Now, in America when he's able to escape from a murder attempt to him, he's now trapped in Manhattan with no beard and no one recognizes him. But still, he will not give up from not leaving the democracy coming to his country. (What I thought about the plot) The script is genius, I loved the script, it's just brilliant and don't forget that the characters were amazing, especially Aladeen. Sow, The Dictator's script is not stupid at all... well, it is, but shows the differences between democracy and dictatorship in a great way. The script also has some terrific scenes, like the wire scene, which is just idiotic and hilarious, the sights' helicopter scene, the Olimpyc Games scene and all the others are just amazing. The Dictator was amazingly scripted, it has a fantastic premise, amazing characters and superb details, I also loved the scene where they sort of answer to the question "Who is General Aladeen?" showing everything about his life, which was amazingly written. Terrific plot.
Besides all that, I am now going to tell you what I really thought about this movie. First of all, although it's racist, sexist and it has pee, sex and poop jokes you just can't not like it, this movie is brilliant and hilarious, it's impossible for you to stay a minute in this movie without laughing, it just kept so many jokes for you, hilarious jokes and you can't even believe how much smart jokes there were here. I highly recommend this movie, it's hard to digest but it it leaves you fully satisfied... like it did to me. Sow, The Dictator is definitely my 2nd favorite movie of all time it made me laugh countless times and it gave me the time of my life in a theater, I was fully entertained and I laughed a lot with this R-rated comedy that used the R for good.
6 (Very Low One)
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is stupid, I can't believe it received an Oscar-Nom. for Best Motion Picture and Drive didn't. This movie, is pathetic, childish and the only good things we can get from it are: the cast, we have Bullock, Hanks and the young kid who showed talent but never last for more than 5 minutes, the acting was okay, Bullock and the young kid were okay but Hanks was the most enjoyable, although if his character was a bit more explored, I think he could get an Oscar Nomination.
Hugo - watch it
The Descendants - watch it
The Artist - watch it
The Tree of Life - watch it
The Help - watch it
War Horse - watch it
Moneyball - watch it
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - don't, unless your anti-mad
