Just when I thought Marvel was only trying to be a joke this movie blew my mind
Marvel has truly outdone themselves with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There is really no bad things I can say about this movie other than the fact that it ended with an amazing end credits scene and now I have to wait till next year for The Avengers. The acting here is top notch, Chris Evans kills it as Cap and Scarlett brings more depth to Black Widow than ever before. Robert Redford also delivers an excellent role and Sabastain Stan as The Winter Soldier delivers a excellent villain. Of all the marvel villains from the movies, Winter Soldier is the only one who made me nervous when he was on screen. It brought me similar feelings as The Joker and Bane did for the Batman films. The movie is a spy thriller and it serves so perfect to throw Cap into this kind of story line. The events of this movie will forever change the Marvel Comic universe in film. This film also delivered Marvels best fight scenes out of any of their films. No powers or weapons just good old fashioned throwing big punches. This is Marvel reminding us that they can actually be taken seriously which after Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World it seemed like they didn't want to be taken seriously. This is a fantastic film and without giving too much away I can say there were some awesome twists revealed that show some familiar faces.Defiantly go see this movie if you have not yet.
12 Years a Slave (2013)
Heartbreaking, powerful, phenomenal....Oscar material for sure
What a powerful and haunting movie. Very hard to watch at times but so well done and well acted that its hard not to be moved by this very heartbreaking story. Compared to last years Django Unchained, this slavery story doesn't make you smile or laugh, this is not a feel good movie. Chiwetel Ejiofor gives one of the most powerful performances I've seen in a long time. Even Michael Fassbender does a great job creating a character that you will hate. Hans Zimmer provides a haunting score to a haunting movie. This is a very sad reminder of a very sad time for this country. A time that in my opinion was never made up for by this country. Brad Pitt's role while small is just amazing and one of my favorite times seeing him on screen. He is playing much more interesting characters as he's aging. Its been a long time since a movie brought tears to my eyes, this movie will bring you tears
A worthy follow up to District 9, cant say much more though
Elysium is a worth follow up to Neil Blomkamp's District 9. Its got thrilling action, awesome visuals and a couple of really good performances. However it doesn't quite reach the level of greatness that District 9 achieved. Is that a bad thing? That depends, they are 2 separate movies, but with Neil Blomkamp's premier movie being so amazing you really cant help but walk into this movie with very high expectations. If there's one thing that I didn't find overly compelling about this movie is that the story just didn't impress me. The concept is excellent and a very scary view of what our future could very well look like if the gap between the middle class and upper class continues to grow but the story that was wrapped around the concept for some reason didn't fascinate me. The film has a great message and is very entertaining but the overall feeling I had when I walked out was "That was a movie." This film defiantly deserves to be watched as its very entertaining and fans of Matt Damon are sure to enjoy this film. District 9's Shartlo Copley does an excellent job as the films villain. I'd say in my opinion you could be fine waiting to just rent this one.
The Conjuring (2013)
Excellent scary movie, right up there with Insidious
Yet another excellent scary movie from james Wan. I truly do trust this man's style for horror. Like Insidious this film is high on scares and awkward thrills to keep you on the edge of your seat. My opinion with watching scary movies though is pretty much its gotta be at home to be scary. So due to whispers and popcorn chewing I didn't find myself scared watching this but im positive i wouldve been at home in the dark and silence. There is a lot to be terrified about here. The film builds up perfectly to me, I think the current formula of the slow build up to the real terror works well to help keep you nervous. I really enjoyed this film and look forward to experiencing the terror again on blu ray.
Iron Man Three (2013)
Okay movie with an excellent cast
This is a movie that falls under the category for me as needing 2 views to fully appreciate it. If your a devoted Iron Man fan familiar with the comics and the many cartoons he's been in you are likely to want to walk out halfway through. If your only experience with Iron man is the current Marvel movies you'll love it. The movie has excellent action, excellent special effects and Robert Downey jr is at the top of his game with his best performance yet. The advertising of this film is its main fault. The trailers promised a more serious movie and the arrival of the long anticipated nemesis of Iron Man, the Mandarin. Without giving much away it fails to meet both those things which is why I have to dock a star for the deception and for the lack of interest in pleasing the hardcore fans who after all is why these characters got popular enough to bring to the big screen. That being said this movie is a lot of fun and better than the second although still cant top the charm and perfect balance of humor and action the first movie had. There is a lot of fun to be had and aside from some small plot holes and one shockingly odd twist its one of the better marvel movies to date. Im not your movie goer whose is woed into loving a movie due to its action content or special effects as many people are, i look for character development and good story and this movie has all of that and some great action as well. I will say I felt Iron Patriot ( formerly War Machine) was yet again not given his due which is a bummer since this is the last solo Iron Man movie. Hopefully he turns up in the Avengers 2 and is given the role he deserves. Well worth the watch, skip the 3D though...not noticeable in the least bit and I have a 3D TV so I know good 3D versus bad and this qualifies as bad.
Excellent Sci-fI film
Totally awesome. This movie surpassed my expectations in every way. The movie felt exactly like the first 2 Alien movies to me which was great. It had all the elements that made the originals great with the new effects that we have today. The 3D was used effectively and every actor did a top notch job. The story was quite creative and the score fit perfectly to the film. This is probably one of my top movies from director Ridley Scott as well as one of my favorite sci-fi movies of all time. High recommend to any fans of the orinals or fans of sci-fi in general. The fan backlash really shocks me since i've seen the originals quite a few times and yet I still loved this movie. Ignore the picky people stuck in the past this is a trip worth taking
Man of Steel (2013)
Amazing film comparable to The Dark Knight's greatness
This for me was a four star movie. I will admit I went in expecting to like it but that has never made me bias, example Iron Man 3, or The Amazing Spiderman. This movie delivers from start to finish. The story is fast paced and for being 2 hours and 23 mins it flies by so fast I couldn't believe when it was over. There are certain characters that are not given the time they deserve but I feel it all made sense for the story. This isn't your Richard Donner Superman movie, this is Superman in the real world. When he is discovered things move fast and with the arrival of Gerneral Zod things really pick up. There is plenty of development of Clark, and General Zod is a creepily good character. The real surprise for me was Russell Crowe, Jor-El was given an excellent role and his character was one of my favorite parts of the movie. Like I said not all characters get great attention, like Perry White, but I feel that we will get that in the next movie. The ending of the movie sets up the next ones perfectly and I left truly excited to see more. The movie is action heavy, and it has awesome set pieces and the special effects are truly spectacular. If your looking for your family style happy go lucky Superman movie this isn't it. If your looking for a great Superman movie that taps into the full potential of this great iconic character this movie is exactly what your looking for. Could there be improvements made? Yes, Does that effect the quality of the movie, absolutely not. I don't think I really could've enjoyed this movie anymore than I did.
