Rocky Balboa (2006)
Don't be afraid to see this film! It will touch your heart!
A lot of people may be afraid to spend money on this film because of the bomb that "Rocky V" was. I was a bit skeptical at first of a new Rocky movie, but I put my cash down for this film and was not disappointed at all. I thought Stallone's age would be a problem for this film, but while I was watching the question of age never came to mind. The underdog story and watching Rocky slowly return to boxing form come to the forefront of the film and I was so engrossed that I didn't care how old Sly was. The acting is decent, but then again Rocky movies are not known for their superb acting. The story is very heartfelt and echoes the original "Rocky". So, if you are skeptical about putting your money down for this film, forget everything and just take a risk. You will NOT be disappointed.
King Kong (2005)
Drawn out and useless: the movie!
I saw Kong on opening weekend going in with some excitement to see whether or not Peter Jackson can make a good movie besides 'Lord of the Rings'. Unfortunately, he can't. In order for a three hour movie to work, there has to be some sort of emotion and ambition to grab the viewer's attention. In this movie, there is nothing but a long boat ride and useless information until we finally meet kong about 50 minutes into the movie. The rest of the film follows suit, with useless cgi chases and giant insects. How does this progress the story of the film? It doesn't, really. In fact, the entire story of the film is only about 45 minutes long and the rest is all just cgi filler and back story. Mr. Jackson, maybe Tolkien fans love drawn out and useless intricities in their movies, but an "action" film needs a decent story and plot progression.
