Ufdah this is a stinker
The movie is absolutely terrible and I will give you ten reasons not to see it:
1. You sit through a two hour Godzilla movie and don't see Godzilla for over an hour into the show and even then you only see him for about 20 minutes.
2. The digital art and video graphics are not of high quality.
3, There is no character development and I found myself not caring what happens to any of the main characters.
4. The movie starts out with Brian Cranston which is cool but he is gone after a very short time leaving viewers confused
5. The plot made no sense at all
6. The movie is shot in very dark colors to hide the fact the digital effects are poor
7. It is boring - I was waiting for something to happen and it never does
8. It is terrible
9. It is bad
10. You will be glad when it is over and you never have to watch another second
Red Tails (2012)
I love the story of the Tuskegee Air Men and was excited for this film to come out. Unfortunately the direction is off, the story never develops well, and you don't really feel any emotional connection with the characters. Despite a solid performance by Cuba Gudding the rest of the acting is sub par. In fact it was so bad it was as if the characters had just read their scripts for the first time and were reciting them without any thought of emotion. There is a love relationship between two characters that is hard to believe. Because of all these flaws I would avoid this movie. There is a better version of this story that was done in the mid 90's. I have watched the earlier film and the story and character development were much more solid making for a much better movie experience. However the fight scenes in the 2012 version are entertaining and they did hold my attention. Nice try and a fun story but the movie wasn't up to Hollywood standards.
After Earth (2013)
Look at my kid!
Dear Mr. Smith,
Maybe you should quit creating films just so you son can be in them. Even though the pursuit of happiness was a decent film, all your son had to do was look cute and play your son. Now that he is older and has to carry bigger roles that stretch his skills, it isn't working.
The sad part is, the thing that makes you a successful actor is your personality. This movie required you to be so stern and cold, and it was a really poor fit for your skill set as well. I hope to see more quality films with you in the leading role in the future. However, if you continue to take roles to help create films for your son you are doing both of you a disservice. Jaden deserves better as well. He clearly would not have earned any of these roles if he wasn't your son.
One of the greatest World Series ever.
The Atlanta Braves had finished last in the National League in 1990. The Minnesota Twins had done the same in the American League 1990. Who would have thought that both last place teams in both leagues would go worst to first in the same year.
This created one of the greatest World Series ever. Seven awesome games. Three extra inning games. The tomahawk chop and the minor controversy for Jane Fonda. Kent Hrbeck pulling Ron Gant the bag on first. chuck Knoblauch and Greg Gagne tricking Lonnie Smith with the phantom double play.
Best moment of all had to be Kirby Puckett's walk off homer in game six....." And we'll see ya tomorrow night!"
Finally it came down to the gutsy pitching of Jack Morris who out dueled John Smoltz for a tenth inning victory. Possible one of the greatest World Series ever won by the might Minnesota Twins! Check out the video.
Game Change (2012)
I am amazed at the posters who are coming on to review this movie and claiming that the movie is propaganda and full of lies. This movie is amazingly accurate.
Both Steve Schmidt and Nicole Wallace, the two senior advisors to Mcain and Palin have both come out and stated it was spot on. Schmidt has said there are moments in the film that were almost verbatim, and it is amazingly accurate. Wallace said it was so true to life it gave her chills.
This is an excellent movie. Sarah Palin was totally unprepared to run for this office and I think the movie does a good job showing how unfair this process really was for her and her family.
Watch it and you will be amazed. Great movie.
All I Want for Christmas (2007)
All I want for Christmas
All I want for Christmas is not a good movie. There are many of these cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies out during the holidays. Most of them are totally predictable and follow the same format. This movie does exactly that, however, you will know exactly what will happen three minutes into the show. The character development is weak, the love relationships are not believable, the little kid is annoying and rude, just a bad bad movie. Save yourself some time and watch the movie Dear Santa. Exact same premise (lead character works in a soup kitchen and the child is trying to set up their parent with a spouse for the holiday). The only difference is that Dear Santa is a predictable yet fun Hallmark like Christmas movie, and All I want for Christmas is not fun in any way.
slow, slow, slow
I saw this movie with my family and we were really looking forward to seeing it. We have enjoyed the movies that this particular church group has produced in the past. The football movie is decent (granted I love any sports movie), and the movie Fireproof was very good. That being said, this movie just didn't cut it. I think that perhaps the producers have gone to the well too often trying to produce the same bible message too often and didn't develop this story very well. Let's be honest, great message about fathers stepping up to the plate and taking responsibility for their families and being the religious leaders of their home......great message, but that doesn't make the movie good. It is so slow and lags for long periods. It is choppy as the story line just doesn't move from one scene to the next very well. Best way to put it......boring.
I look forward to seeing the movie flywheel that they produced a few years ago. I know it will have a wholesome and positive religious message.....I want that in movies for my family.....but I also don't want to be put to sleep by a movie that just isn't very good. Sorry guys.
Couples Retreat (2009)
I just don't know what to think about Vince Vaughn. I enjoyed both Old School and Wedding Crashers. However, he was really a second fiddle in both movies. I don't think he can carry a movie. Take for instance The Break Up or Four Christmas'....both of these movies have the same feel as Couples Retreat. Dreadful.
Couples Retreat just isn't funny. The character development is non existent. It's so bad, you don't even really like any of the whiny characters in the film. There are canned comedy situations linked together by brooding, depressed, complaining couples who are all totally dysfunctional. Not funny dysfunctional in a Clark Griswold way, just dysfunctional in an annoying way that makes you pray for the movie to end.
The best way to put this is that the movie is uncomfortable. You are waiting for things to turn for the better and for the movie to pick up but it just doesn't. Try a root canal instead, it would be more enjoyable.
Save your time and read a book or watch some TV.
The Spirit (2008)
This is going to be a bit harsh, but I hated this movie. It was downright terrible. A waste of two hours.
I was surprised, because I usually like comic book, campy style movies. Unfortunately, this movie just didn't deliver.
The Nazi scene was hard to watch, the writing was poor, and there was no chemistry between the actors. Even Samuel Jackson (who is always pretty entertaining) didn't bring much to this film.
I did feel that some of the special effects were pretty decent and there were a few funny jokes (one on Star Trek that got a lot of laughs in the theatre).
The costumes of many of the female characters will also capture the attention of many of the younger male viewers (a bit revealing to say the least). Other than that, don't waste your money.
Possibly an OK rental movie.
No Reservations (2007)
Absolute Snore fest
This movie was an absolute snore fest. It is boring, it went no where, it is terrible.
If you have a hard time sleeping, watch this movie and you will be out in five minutes.
My wife picked this out as a weekend video. Fifteen minutes into the movie, I was waiting for it to move forward and for something to take hold. It never did, just more and more of the same.
The chemistry between the characters never develops, and the love story is hard to believe. I was shocked at how bad the movie was with some of the quality actors in the film. I did think that the little girl who played Zoe was great. She has been in several films and is a great little actor.
Don't waste your time, it is horrible.
