Crop And Save
My son loves Deadpool character and I was worried about taking him to see this R-rated movie. But in all honesty, there are much worse that kids nowadays are exposed to (games and movies). Yes, Deadpool has violence and it is a little bloody, but I think the humor really helps to tone down the heaviness. The violence in Deadpool doesn't compare to 300 or Old Boy, which I would never let my kids see. As far as the sexual scenes, there were a couple of scenes and they are far in between. I do think they can tone down on the "unnecessary" swearing that seem solely there just for the sake of making it rated R. I'm by no means sensitive to it, but just stating there are many rated R movies that definitely can carry the same message without unnecessary swears every 5 seconds that makes it seem more annoying than meaningful.
If they do decide to do a sequel, hoping they will stay true to the character's humor and essence. My son did mention that Deadpool in the game was a bit stronger than portrayed in the movie. Most sequels destroy hit movies by trying to overcompensate and thus going over-the-top with bad jokes, story lines, and more violence. More is not always better. This one was nicely done, but can tone down on swearing a bit. Just keep it simple but effective.
Sinister 2 (2015)
Worst Movie Ever. I'd rather burn my money.
I wish there was a zero star for this movie. I've seen many bad movies but never to the point of wanting to walk out of the theater. I was with some friends and they were repulsed as well but said they paid for it so might as well suffer through it. Another girl next to me was laid asleep on her boyfriend.
This was advertised as a psychological ghost thriller, but the actual movie is far from it. It's more of a slasher flick but with very young kids. What disturbed person conjured up this gory mess with very young kids performing gruesome acts towards their family members? A great message for kids (sarcasm). No substance, poor acting, and I will never get my time or money back. Awful.
Jurassic World (2015)
I was not expecting much based on the previews and thought that it would be ridden with CGI, but I have to say that I am really impressed at how realistic the dinosaurs look. Wow, technology just keeps getting better and better.
I don't get why all the bad reviews about it being predictable. Like what another reviewer was saying, if you're going to see a Jurassic movie, what were you expecting to happen, that they would just clean themselves in a cage? Yah, that would be totally unpredictable.
I also thought the acting for this type of movie was very good, especially from the little boy. Also loved Chris Pratt in this, he was enjoyable to watch. I'm not going to read too much into a dinosaur movie, went to see it for the adventure, loved it and my kids did too. It filled the gap that Godzilla didn't, especially at the end. We had fun so money well spent.
Better Call Saul (2015)
Another good quality series, not just a spin-off.
I did not expect much from this spin-off. Figured how can they top Breaking Bad, but gave it a shot anyway to pay homage to BB. Surprisingly, I am enjoying it probably a bit more than I did BB. Don't boo me people as I am just as much a fan of Breaking Bad and an avid fan of Bryan Cranston ever since, but there were a few slower scenes in BB.
I have always been a fan of Saul's character since the start. Albeit he is a little sleazy, he had a lovable harmlessness to him and he makes you laugh. I am glad that BCS kept his character's personality consistent with that from BB. Slowly, you see his character building up to Saul.
Looking forward to more.
The Purge: Anarchy (2014)
Good, Intense, Thrilling
Better than expected. You don't expect much when you go into these types of movies. I was afraid it would be too violent and is a slasher type film. It was a bit violent (but no different that most action movies out there) but not gory or in poor taste at all and definitely not a slasher flick (thank goodness). It actually had a good plot and good acting, believable and made the concept more legitimate. It does raise the question of what humans are capable of if given free reign by the government. Does humanity still exist?
Overall, good movie considering all the bad execution you find in movies nowadays. Also, it is better and more intriguing than part 1.
Butchered the Transformers brand
I wanted to like this movie since I'm a fan of Transformers. This is totally different and remote from its 3 prequels, and not in a good way. The third Transformers was a little disappointing but this was way worse. The beginning was slow, boring, and pointless. The human characters had absolutely no personalities or emotions--the robots probably had more emotions than the humans. I did not feel the connection between the human and robot aliens because the acting was so bad. The only good thing about this was the CGI but like what most have said, by that time you really don't care about what's going on. I am giving this 4 stars only because I still like the Transformers brand.
I'm one of the few that don't like superhero movies, except for maybe the darker, more serious ones like the Dark Knight. Although the world seemed to think that the Avengers was top Blockbuster worthy, I found it to be no different than the slew of over-the-top superhero movies before it like Iron Man and Thor. It did not do anything for me.
But Captain America: the Winter Soldier is legit. There were no bad guys from another planet with supernatural powers and such, there were just bad guys who were tough to beat. And the fight sequences in this movie, in my opinion, is setting a new bar for the best fight choreography so far. Amazing fight scenes, amazing stunts, and amazing visuals. All the characters were great and believable, and the acting was top notch(considering it's not so much a script movie as it is an action movie). Have to say, love the bad guys in this one. Go see it, you'll have a great time!
The Croods (2013)
I have never written a review on a movie before no matter how good or bad. But this movie really deserves high praise! I had brought the kids to see a few other animated movies before this like Wreck-it Ralph and Rise of the Guardian, but they turned out to be somewhat boring and unengaged. So I went into this not expecting much, it was more for the kids. To my surprise, I LOVED IT! It's different, funny, smart, and adventurous. I found myself giggling through most of the movies and at other times astounded by the visual effects. I also see my kids and other kids sitting at the edge of their seats at times. It is great for all ages. The picture was stunning and saturated with imagination. Dreamworks has outdone themselves with this one. I highly recommend taking your family to see this!
