Our favorite superhero expendables return., 3 May 2015
9/10

The Avengers known has Captain America(Chris Evans), Iron Man(Robert Downey JR), Black Widow(Scarlett Johansson), Hulk/Bruce Banner(Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye(Jeremy Renner), Thor(Chris Hemsworth) find themselves against a new enemy known has Ultron(James Spader) a machine that Stark and Banner created to help this world, but Ultron has gained more powerful than ever, and his bent on destruction of mankind, will our heroes stop him and save the human race before it's too late?

It's almost has good as the first film, action scenes are awesome, I mean epic. All the characters have more to give here instead of being superheroes, you see a bit of humanity here. James Spader is great has Ultron, he gives the character such a joyful creepy charm. Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor Johnson always bring some awesomeness as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver. It just keeps me hyped for the next Marvel Chapter.

A better entertaining sequel then Hot Tub Time Machine 2, 27 April 2015
8/10

I liked the first Paul Blart, but did I think this was just as good, well almost. There are some funny scenes, but there are moments it comes across like it tries to hard, and the jokes are hit and miss in spots. Kevin James is enjoyable in the role, he is always fun to watch.

The Die Hard send up works here like it did the first one, Paul while staying in a Las Vegas Hotel with his daughter, for a security guard convention, but becomes in a duel with some thieves who are robbing the Hotel.

The scenes with the daughter does not give the movie much, and scenes with her sort off boyfriend pretty much go nowhere. But when this movie picks up it really picks up. Neal McDonough seems like he is having fun has the main villain. It's up there with first film, not a great film, but an entertaining film something that Hot Tub Time Machine 2 failed to be.

May never look at Skype in the same way again., 23 April 2015
8/10

It seems like any other night, some teenage friends are all talking on Skype, suddenly become a night in fear, when an unknown person comes on there chat room, and begins to play mind games with them and begins to pit them all against each other, will they come out of this okay, and who is this unknown person on the chat room that is terrorizing them?

A well made thriller that takes place from video camera on a laptop, I really like the way the terror just keeps building and building. The actors really do a good job, even Shelly Henning who plays Blaire, her performance really shines here, she's almost 30, but looks like she's 18. And none of the characters are very likable but you still hate seeing bad things happen to them. If you are in the mood for a thought provoking horror film then Unfriended is that film for you.

An enjoyable ride, 14 April 2015
9/10

Sophia(Britt Robertson) a college student living in North Carolina, while on a date with Luke(Scott Eastwood) a rodeo star, is not real sure where to go with it, cause she is moving to New York within two months, feeling it would not work out with him, even though she really finds herself falling for him, one night after there first date they discover a car wreck, and rescue a man that was in the wreck, and take him to the hospital. Sophia finds out the man name is Ira(Alan Alda), she also finds a box of letters to his late wife Ruth, and then his story begins to be told through the letters, Sophia soon starts to question her own decisions?

You know what to expect when you go to a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel, but I was entertained, Britt Robertson was great I believe there is an Oscar in her future. Scott Eastwood was good with what he was giving, he is almost getting out of the shadow of his famous father. But it's Alan Aldas performance that will bring you to tears, I was more into his story then Eastwood and Robertson. The flashback scenes I think where more watchable then the present scenes.

The best horror comedy since Zombieland, 8 April 2015
8/10

This entertaining show is part horror comedy and part crime drama, it is all well blended together perfectly. You really the character has she narrates her life on dealing with her life as a zombie, dealing with her families concern, cause she looks so pale, looking like she has not seen the sun in days, she works at a morgue, so she can eat a dead persons brain, in wonder to keep from turning into a mindless killing monster. But the side effects of eating a dead persons brain, is that gets some of the victims traits and there memories, she ends up working with police, who thinks she is a psychic.

This show is entertaining, pulls out all the stops, and no point you feel insulted by watching it. All the actors really do well, and nobody makes an attempt to stand out.

An action movie for people who like action movies, 5 April 2015
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Deckard Shaw(Jason Statham) older to Owen(the villain from the last film) wants revenge on Toretto(Vin Diesel) and his gang for happened in London, and Deckard is a trained military killer and he will stop at nothing. Will Dominic and crew be able to uncover this conspiracy before it's too late?

It's a sad note, that Paul Walker died during filming, although his scenes where nearly finished, there where other scenes left to film, they had a body double to stand in, and CGI Paul Walkers face. Although those scenes are pretty obvious. Paul Walker will be surely missed.

Paul Walker 1973-2013

Action scenes are pretty intense, in films like this you have to suspend a serious of disbelieve. Fight scenes are also great, with each film it gets amped up for the better. Vin Diesel and Jason Statham are great, and there awesome showdown is beyond epic. The other cast members get there chance to shine, nobody really stands out this time. A fight scene between Michelle Rodriguez and Ronda Rousey is quite the guilty pleasure. Like I said an action movie for people who like action movies.

If E.T. had a lot to say, 29 March 2015
8/10

In this wonderfully animated world, where small aliens named Boov, take over earth, they move the earth people to a different location, this alien race change color when ever they show different emotions. But one of them named Oh(voiced by Jim Parsons) accidentally set off a signal that could lead there enemy called The Gord, Oh soon goes on the run, he meets up with 13 year old human girl named Tip(voiced by Rihanna), who is looking for her mother, they must learn to trust each other in hopes to survive, but the question is will they?

Jim Parsons brings the same comic appeal to this, that he brings to the Big Bang Theory. So does Rihanna, and supporting cast like Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin to name a few. It kind of feels like a parody of those kid friendly alien movies and alien invasion films also. Still an enjoyable film for the whole family.

The Gunman (2015)

Like it a little better than The November Man., 29 March 2015
8/10

Sean Penn hopes that The Gunman will do for him, that Taken did for Liam Neeson, playing a man with a deadly set of skills.

A former marine sniper(Sean Penn) who is now living a simple life, but quickly realizing now that he is a hunted man, cause of one of his sins of the past. Will he uncover this conspiracy before it's too late?

Not the best film, but at least entertaining.

Sean Penn does give a descent performance here, not playing a one dimensional action hero, like Pierce Brosnan in The November Man. He shows he has deal with his actions of his past, that has not been to many times. Action scenes are pretty well done. Ray Winstone and Javier Bardem are effective in the there supporting roles. Although Jasmine Trinca is alright, but her chemistry with Penn feels forced. When it slows down, does kind of drag. Still an entertaining film.

Does what Maleficent failed to do., 22 March 2015
10/10

This retelling of a Disney classic is very well made, and unlike last years Maleficent, the acting here is perfect, I mean when someone is sad, you feel sad with them. I hope more Disney re-tellings will do they same.

The setting is perfect, almost feels real and less like a set. Lily James really excels in her role as Cinderella, plays it more realistic, not cartoony one bit. Helena Bonham Carter shows how much fun she is having in her role has the fairy godmother, it seems like the role for her was a dream come true. Cate Blanchett gives a good sutler evil performance as the evil stepmother, she shows you how evil she is, the moment she first enters the film. Kenneth Branagh direction is quite beyond greatness. This is how Disney should do there films from now on.

I enjoyed the second ride, 22 March 2015
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This does not feel like a sequel, it felt like I was watching the second half of the first film. After the unenlightening that was Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Unfinished Business I was looking for something fun and relaxing, and this movie does deliver. I didn't think a sequel to this was even necessary, but it proved me wrong.

All the returning cast are great here, seem very relaxed here, you can tell they all are having a grand time just working together. Dev Patel really brings more comedic timing too his performance this time. Bill Nighy, Maggie Smith, and Judi Dench are all just so watchable here. The India setting is just exotic. Richard Gere joining the cast, brings his own to the film. The centers on things like, getting older, enjoying life, and swallowing your pride.

I hope they don't make a third one, cause the ending to this feels everything was wrapped up, so making a third one to this would feel pointless.
