Crop And Save
Destroys what was a comedy classic.
Remember the vacation movies starring Chevy Chase has Clark Griswald, a family taken his family on vacation, and everything that could go wrong does. Films that where funny, except for Vegas Vacation which I didn't see. Now this was an attempt to revive the series in this sequel/remake.
Ed Helms as Rusty Griswald, don't get me wrong he is funny, but nowhere near as Chevy Chase is. Christina Applegate as his wife is good has Helms wife, but the chemistry feels forced. The actors playing there kids are annoying, if you thought the two kids in Jurassic World where bad, these kids here put one up. Leslie Mann makes an appearance has Audrey, and it reminds me that i'm getting so bored with Leslie Mann these days. Chris Hemsworth is alright as Audrey's husband, seems to be having a fun time mocking his pretty boy looks. The problem for me is that the film spends more time being gross out, instead of just going for laughs.
Half the time I wasn't laughing, I was wondering if I should walk out, or stay till the end. This film was missing the style of John Hughes writing, he knew how to write comedy. The only moments I thought where funnier when Chevy Chase appears as Clark Griswald, but other than that this movie is a waste of time, it tries to be a Hangover like film, the gross out gags worked in the first two hangover films, cause they had timing to them, but here there is no timing to any of it, it lacks the heart and charm of the original vacation films.
Wow I never thought I'd see something worse than Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Hot Pursuit this year, but Vacation is it.
Pixels is looking like a comedy classic compared to this.
Really surprised me
I had low expectations for this judging by the title, but I walked out really liking this, it was better than I expected.
Amy Schumer was really good, you think your not supposed like her character, and she does come across has what the title says, but has it goes on she begins to show more sides of her personality, and it's good acting by Amy Schumer. Bill Hader is also great has the doctor who Schumer who falls in love with. They where so good to the point, I believed they where in love and not acting. All the characters are also quite alive, it's quite vulgar, but does not go overboard to the max.
All in all, a very good film, that really balances out it's elements of it's main characters perfectly.
Paper Towns (2015)
Great teen film for 2015
18 year old Quentin(Nat Wolff) has always had a crush on Margo(Cara Delevingine), not since they where kids, he was never spoken to her since, until one night she comes to his window asks for his help, and then they have one crazy fun night. Then Margo goes missing in a week. While missing her, Quentin starts noticing clues that Margo leaves behind, so Quentin and his friends embark on a mission to find her, but will they?
A well done teen comedy drama that plays all the teen cliché films, and everybody does shine well. When moments are they're funny, and when they are serious it is serious. It's not realistic, but a fun enjoyable ride. The actors really shine here, It's a great coming of age film, for all teenagers to enjoy.
Better alien invasion comedy then The Watch(2012)
I understand why critics come down on Adam Sandler, when it comes to his comedies they are pretty much hit or miss, but to some more miss then hit.
Gamers from the 1980's are called upon by the government when an alien invasion comes in the form of old video game characters, and half to try to defeat them like the game. But will they save the day before it's too late?
Like some of Adam Sandler comedies, this is not a great film, but it never tries to be, but it is entertaining, I did laugh a few, end enjoyed the effects. Adam Sandler is good, so was Michelle Monaghan, I won't forget Kevin James. But the real scene steelers that take the cake are Peter Dinklage and Josh Gad, they get the most funny lines, and never go too far over the top. I enjoyed this movie, it never tries to be anything more than what it is, just a fun time, sometimes that is all you need. The cast play off each other perfectly, but if you where not entertained by this, I'm sorry that you weren't.
little giant man
I wasn't sure that I would like this, cause after the whole Edgar Wright thing. But I gave this movie the benefit, and did I like it?
Scott Lang(Paul Rudd) a former thief who is trying to make ends meat, but finds himself in a situation by millionaire Hank Pym(Michael Douglas) who is an inventor of a suit that shrink to the size of an ant, Pym himself was a former superhero known has Ant Man, he is looking at Lang to be the new Ant Man.
I really liked this, it was nothing real big like The Avengers but it was a real fun time. The shrinking effects are terrific, just really keeps you glued. A lot of people where not sure about casting of Paul Rudd as the hero, but Paul Rudd has such a likable presence about him, proved to be the best choice. Michael Douglas was also great. Michael Pena really steals a lot of the movie for any scene he is in, cause he just delivers the laughs. My only problem with this is the villain, he never comes across to frightening to the point you'll feel shaken in your seats. But I really was entertained, I hope to see more Ant Man films in the future.
Face/Off meets Limitless
Damian(Ben Kingsley) a self made billionaire discovers he is dying, and does have much longer to live, discovers a secret facility that can transfer his soul into a younger body(Ryan Reynolds), when the transfer is a success, Damian really begins to enjoy his new life in his new body, but soon realizes that his new life will have a price to pay.
I'm surprised that I liked this, I went expecting this to be bad, but I was amazed on how intriguing it kept me. It shows on we deal with dying and immortality, and things we must learn to face in life. Ben Kingsley was good, and Ryan Reynolds really surprised me. Matthew Goode was incredible. It does have some good action scenes, and great sci-fi element. Everybody gives a good performance here, and it does what sci-fi should do, kept you intrigue.
Well made dog film.
A military dog who's comrade is killed in a shootout, is sent to live with his comrades family, but has trouble adjusting to a new life outside the military.
It's part family film and part mystery. I really liked the way it does not try to be too kid oriented. The dog playing Max really gives a good performance. So do the human actors. Although Lauren Graham as the mother came across has too annoyingly whimsical, and Thomas Haden Church has the father came across to one dimensional, that is until the end where they start show more sides of themselves. But the boy who befriends Max does a good job also, and he and the dog act well together. I liked the way the movie shows how dogs are trained in the military. I believe the whole family will likes this, if you love a good dog movie.
Terminator Genisys (2015)
Entertaining,although not quite the masterpiece as the first two.
Terminator 3(2003) was alright, just feeling it was kind of just there. And Terminator Salvation(2009) I did like a little more cause it didn't try to be a carbon copy like the third one, focused more on the future part, and Christian Bale was a pretty good John Connor.
The effects in-voling the terminators are pretty descent, and it is awesome seeing Arnold playing a machine once again, since it has been 12 years since, action scenes are well shot, and keep you on the edge of your seat. Now the main problem is with Jai Courtney has Kyle Reese, he is nothing like the way Michael Biehn played him in 1984, to the point where it feels like a different character, I wondered why Jason Clarke who plays John Conner was not cast as Kyle Reese, cause he looks a little like Michael Biehn. Now Emilia Clarke has Sarah Conner really shines here, and does bare a slight resemblance to a young Linda Hamilton. But dialog between Courtney and Clarke gets clunky for the most part.
A fun film nothing more, at times it feels less like a terminator and more like an homage to the terminator films.
Ted 2 (2015)
Upstages the first one a little.
The first one was funny, but the sequel is a little better cause it has adventure and misadventure to put the Ted character and his friends into. Why I liked Ted 2 better than Hot Tub Time Machine 2, well the Hot Tub sequel could not make any of the gags work, they threw anything out there and it really shows, and nobody was interesting and likable. But in Ted 2 was the total opposite, you really like the characters despite the stupid things they do, leave it to Seth Macfarlane, who can make you be charmed by foul humor and gross out gags.
Ted(voiced by Seth Macfarlane) wants to have a baby with his wife, but then he is questioned by the law, he is human or property?
Mark Wahlberg and Seth Macfarlane where funny, and have a great comic chemistry. So does Amanda Seyfried has there lawyer, I mean you see that they where having the best time making this. At times it feels like you are watching a Family Guy episode at times cause of all the homages to other classics. All the other supporting cast do well also. This film is like Dumb and Dumber To, not great films, but funny and entertaining films. If you are not into to this, then you avoid this then.
Inside Out (2015)
Herman's Head meets Wreck-It Ralph
I think the screenwriter of this got inspired off of the 90's sitcom Herman's Head(1991-1994), I mean the similarities are there, but this movie is more kid friendly, where Herman's Head was more for adults.
I gotta say the animation is beyond terrific, I don't know but I'll bet it took a while, but it was worth it. And the voice acting is great also, I mean if you don't find the right voices, it's not gonna work, but they did find the right voices of these characters, the actors really bring them to life. This movie makes us think about the different emotions that go inside our heads. And the character traits of the voices, and what goes in the deepest part of our minds. It's an enjoyable film for the whole family.
