The Intern (2015)
I actually really loved this movie
Watched this with no intentions of what it was about, not even seeing a trailer.
Great, feel good movie without being over the top.
Deniro pulls of a great role as a fatherly figure who has experience and eventually pulls Anne thru most of her turmoils.
Im actually really surprised to see so many haters. I myself can be very critical, but this movie delivered for what it was set out to be.
Deniro shows that he can be versatile and is a great actor. Anne is great also she has done roles like this before.
I really liked the start up business story and bringing someone like deniro as quirky as it seems has some real good messages.
I guess some critics are just very superficial or had certain expectations coming into it before they watched it.
Captivating, Dark thriller
I wanted to watch something on Netflix and i did a quick search in Google for TOP MOVIES 2014, Rotten Tomatoes had this movie ranked pretty high.
I had no hopes, no expectations.
This movie blew me away. I have actually found a new found respect for Jake as an actor.
I generally do like thrillers / suspense, so it was no surprise i ended up liking this one.
However, the character Jake builds within the movie is immaculate.
This movie does not feel like 'hollywood' at all, yet it certainly does not feel 'b'grade either. Directing, character building, story is fantastic.
I highly recommend you go into this with little to no expectations. Oops maybe reading this review already gave you high expectations. :)
This Is the End (2013)
A fresh original movie that exceeded my expectations
I do not often give reviews. However in this case i will, the current ratings in IMDb 7.3 is just about right, the movie is an original and will become a classic in time.
There is not much to not like about this film, Seth rogan and his clan (you will instantly be familiar with from other films) play themselves which i found exciting. Its not usual that you will see an actors play themselves this in itself was refreshing.
What starts off as a light comedy turns into a full on movie on what Armageddon would be like through the eyes of Seth rogan. The best i can describe this movie is similar effect to From Dusk Till Dawn....
The special effects were surprisingly great, almost felt like Diablo (the game) in real life....
I really did enjoy this film to the point im going to watch it again, if your looking for a fresh comedy / horror / sci-fi then give this a go.
Evil Dead (2013)
Good but don't expect something better than the original
In a nutshell its 'Good' and worth a watch, but do not watch it expecting more than the original.
I often cringe when they make a remake of an excellent film as more so than not they are a flop.
I did walk in with some level of expectations as i am a real fan of the original and i could not help but keep comparing it to the 80's version expecting similar scenes.
Evil dead remake is not a complete replica of the original, in fact its a different story with similar key plot elements. This is a good thing and gives a fresh take on the story of Evil Dead.
It's down falls ...
Where the movie lacks is in the story, i saw many mistakes and goofs as some have pointed out and the characters were not believable enough. I will say they sure can take punishment from the dead thou. I also thought that that the movie lacked in the sound effects department and also there is no sound track to the movie. Evil dead lacks in building a scary environment, the original was good at this and if you have watched it the last 15 minutes is fantastic.
It's high points ...
Gore, gore, gore it goes without saying that if your looking for gore you have come to the right place, some scenes will make your butt cheeks clench and it is clear why it was given an R18+ rating.
The special effects are great, the gore scenes are believable and it achieves to make the viewer react as they should if they were put into that situation.
Evil dead is worth watching, although you should watch it with less expectations to the original film. The gore and special effects is what makes up for the lack of storyline, half assed acting, mistakes and is why i have given it a 7/10
