Phil Broker(Jason Statham) a DEA agent who quits cause a bust does not
go down the way he hoped, two years later, he and his daughter try to
settle down in Mississippi, until his daughter beats up a bully, and
the bullies crack head mom(Kate Bosworth) wants some kind of action
done. Although Broker does his best to make peace, but the crack head
moms drug lord brother(James Franco) is called in to shake things up.
A pretty descent film, I like Jason Statham just does not play a one noted action hero, but also plays a concern parent pretty well also. Kate Bosworth is pretty unlikable in her role, but it proves to be quite challenging, gorgeous actress like Bosworth can play somebody pretty messed up. Winona Ryder and James Franco are good as the bad guys. It also some intense fight scenes and shootout scenes.
An enjoyable entertaining animated film, about two sisters who are
princess's, but are not very close, because the oldest sister has the
power of cold, and it grows beyond her control, after an humiliating
moment, she runs away, and creates an ice castle, but forever makes it
cold forever in her town. So her younger tries to find her, and hopes
to help her make it summer again?
Perfectly well animated, although for some parts the musical part of the film fell short at times. But I liked the characters nobody really stands, but the funny snowman named Olaf steals a good portion of the scenes he is in. The snow effects are pretty dazzling. It's a fun film to enjoy for the holidays.
It has been a year since Katniss(Jennifer Lawrence) and Petta(Josh
Hutcherson) both won The Hunger Games, now they go on tour as
celebrities pretending to be a couple, making speeches. But the
president(Donald Sutherland) want to break Katniss, emotional as well
I thought everything that was first done well in the first Hunger Games film, was done much better here. The setting was well done, also the tension was greatly approved upon. Jennifer Lawrence is great as Katniss, so was Josh Hutcherson as Petta, I they grew more since the first one, Woody Harrelson steals some scenes he's in, Donald Sutherland is also as the evil president, after seeing this, I'm excited for the next one.

I did not see much of The Best Man(1999), But I was really interested
in seeing this film after seeing the trailer. I better warn you, if you
think this is gonna be just a comedy think again, don't get me wrong it
is pretty funny, when the funny bits come up, but be ready to cry,
cause the dramatic moments are so touching it will leave an emotional
weight on you.
The cast are pretty terrific no one really stands out, I hope there will be Oscar nominations. It's a well made bittersweet film, balances the comedy and drama parts perfectly. The Christmas setting I also liked. Will there be a third Best Man film, time will tell, in another 14 years maybe.
Two turkeys (Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson) from different back
grounds, are somewhat paired together, when they stumble onto a
government experiment that involves time travel, when they get into the
time machine, they ask it named Steve(voiced by George Takei) to take
them for the first Thanksgiving, in order to prevent it, set all
This film is getting a lot of negative reviews, I still can't figure, It's just a fun entertaining film, with incredible animation, and all the actors doing there voices seems like there having fun. It has one heart felt moment, but other than that this film does not take itself seriously. The jokes are laugh out loud funny, some may dislike it, and some may night. But I liked it, although this movie is not for everybody.
It's been a year since the events in New York, and Loki(Tom Hiddleston)
has been sentenced t the dungeons of Asgard by Odin(Anthony Hopkins).
Jane(Natalie Portman) while staying in London, stumbles onto a secret
realm, in which she ends up in for a couple hours, and when she comes
back, something has come back with her, and it's in her system,
Thor(Chris Hemsworth) reunites with Jane in order to help her. But an
old enemy from Odin's past wants what is in Jane's system, and he will
stop at nothing to get it.
A pretty good Marvel film, although I do miss some of the Shakespearing elements from the first one, but the effects and scenery are incredible, I feel where inspired off of Lord Of The Rings and Star Wars. Chris Hemsworth is still great as Thor, Natalie Portman and Idris Elba are giving more to do the second time around. This makes me excited for the second Avengers film.
In the distant future where an alien invasion is coming towards earth,
a colonel(Harrison Ford) puts his faith in Ender Wiggins(Asa
Butterfield) a shy, but very smart teenage boy, believing he has the
ability to stop the invasion. Putting him through training, testing his
physical ability and his mind. Will Ender will triumph in the end?
A great sci-fi action drama, it just never gets boring for a second regardless of what some critics say. Asa Butterfield is like the best young actor of his generation, I can see an Oscar in his future, he holds his own with Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley, and that is not always easy, but he does with no problem. Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley are good in there roles, so was Hallie Steinfield. But I didn't feel there was much character with Abigail Breslin who plays Enders sister.
Four childhood friends who where like a good old gang back in the day,
now 58 years later they all(Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, Michael
Douglas, and Kevin Kline) have grown apart and living separate lives,
and all pushing 70. But get a call to go to Las Vegas, for a friends
engagement. Will these four old friends have the time of there lives?
All the great actors here have great chemistry and appears to be having fun being in the film together. The Las Vegas setting is awesome, and seems to take on a life of it's own. It was also very funny seeing the adventure and misadventure these guys get themselves into. It's also quite heartwarming, an enjoyable film for men and women.
The story takes place in the 70's, it revolves around the lives of two
famous race car drivers, James Hunt(Chris Hemsworth) who loves to race
and loves the fame that comes with it, and Nicki Lauda(Daniel Bruhl)
who just loves to race, does not care about the fame. The two have a
love and hate kind of thing going, that keeps there competitive going.
Excellent film, that captures the look of the 70's perfectly. Director Ron Howard does it again, his direction is brilliant. Chris Hemsworth gives a good performance has James Hunt, and Daniel Bruhl as Nicki Lauda, showing there desire to race, and at times egos getting in the way. But both having the strong desire for greatness, I think that it was well captured on film.

Usually remakes of great films destroy what was good about the film,
like Psycho(1998),and The Bad News Bears(2005) to name a few. But the
same cannot said about Carrie, cause this remake not only makes a
horror film, but it also displays the horrors of reality, like bullying
and crazy overbearing parents, the original had that, but this version
presented it in a very realistic way.
Chloe Grace Moretz is no Sissy Spacek, but she really surprised me on how good she was, cause she is a teenager playing a teenager, unlike Spacek who was in her mid 20's. Not saying she was bad, but Moretz was good in her own way. Julianne Moore was also good has Carries crazy mother, for those who think she can't act, may think differently after seeing this, she really plays crazy perfectly, unlike Piper Laurie who came across has silly and over the top.
The effects are also great, the scenes where Carrie uses her powers, now understand the 1976 version, cause they where on a tight budget. Moretzs performance during the prom scene is very different, it comes across like she is not controlling her powers, but more like her powers are controlling her. And all the supporting cast are pretty good, trying to be believable, not playing typical stereo types.
