I Was So Wrong!
When Power 1st came out, I thought it would be just another of those predictable gang banging drug dealing TV series. How wrong I was I don't usually write reviews but this was worth my writing 1. All I can say I was hooked from the 1st episode. In a way, I'm kind of glad I didn't watch it when it 1st came out because I would have to wait each week to see the next episode, & with a series like this, I wouldn't want to wait! So I've been benging on Power the past 3 days while laid up in the hospital. Now I can't wait till season 4....
Captain Phillips (2013)
Wow! Great Movie
Captain Phillips was not at all what I expected it be, especially since I had not seen any of the previews prior to seeing this movie. However, because I am such a big Tom Hanks fan, I decided to give it a shot and boy am I glad I did. I had no idea what the movie was about until my boyfriend told me that it was based on the true story of the pirates taking over a ship in 2009, a story I remember seeing on the news.
Well I just got finished watching this movie and it was great! It moved at just the right pace. Held my interest the whole time. The actors portraying the pirates did a convincing job in their roles as the villains. They acted with such passion which help to bring some realism to the movie, almost as if I were watching a documentary.
Needless to say, Tom Hanks has given yet another Stella performance in a role. Again, it was if I were watching then real Capt. Phillips. I'm so glad that I watched this movie. I must say that our military is awesome!!!
I recommend this movie to everyone. You will not be disappointed!
Kick-Ass 2 (2013)
Although I did like the 1st Kick-Ass a little better then this one, this was still a good movie. It was very enjoyable to see Chloe Grace a little more grown up & mature. Once again, her scenes were very well choreographed. Aaron Taylor-Johnson did a great job in his re-occurring role as well. I liked the way the movie began. It was a fun movie to watch and not half bad for a sequel. My only problem is that the plot got a little corny at times but I guess that's what is to be expected in a super-hero type movie. Still, it held my attention for the most part. Bottom line, Kick-Ass 2, kicked azz again...But hopefully, it will stop at this one. Lol.
House of Cards (2013)
Woohoo. Excellent. Bravo! *clapping hands, standing ovation, screaming, "We want more, We want more!"* I rarely write reviews although I do rate them quite often. But I HAD to write 1 about this series. Unlike some others, this series was very realistic & unfortunately, probably very true to what people will do & sacrifice in order to make it to the "Top";pointing out greed, deceit, lies, cover- ups, adultery, etc.. in order to do so. I didn't think any series could come close to any of the other top-rated cable networks series like "The Wire," "The Sopranos," "Prison Break," or "Lost," (which left me really Lost...). With that said, How wrong was I?! Very!! ***kicks self in the booty!***. Netflix really did a great job with this one!! Once again, a show that puts my hometown, Baltimore/DC, on the map. I usually don't like political type movies/series, so I really wasn't interested in watching this, even though I saw some of the filming of it in downtown Baltimore City. So my fiancé' & I watched the whole series in 2 days, having our own little "House of Cards" marathon with no annoying commercials or the pain & agony of having to wait week-to-week for the next episode to air! We're both big Kevin Spacey fans & he didn't disappoint in this 1 either. Robin Wright Penn did an excellent job playing her character as well. She was just as ruthless & cunning as her "husband" (played by Kevin Spacey). We loved how Kevin's narration. We were reeled in -hook,line & sinker- from the very 1st episode! I'm just so sorry that we waited so long to watch it... Well maybe not because now we can't wait for the 2nd Season to come out!!!(I do kind of feel sorry for those viewers who watched this when it 1st came out because they have been waiting longer then us to see the 2nd Season)...Speaking of which...Hey Netflix! Please hurry & air the 2nd Season!(whatever you want to call it)! Is this (Netflix) way of making us wait in limbo & suspense, until the next Season airs? It's almost like we're watching it on a weekly basis anyway! Netflix sure has found a way to prevent us from wanting to deactivate our membership so that we can at least watch the 2nd Season of House Of Cards. Way to go Netflix! What a way to try to keep & gain more customers...at least I'm hooked! Anyway, If you haven't already...please watch this series! You really won't be disappointed...well, except for the fact that you'll have to wait for the 2nd Season to air! God bless! :-)
Better then I expected!
All I can say is that I was in no way interested in watching this movie at all. But my friend & finally decided to watch it last night & I must say it's 1 one of the best movies I have seen. Full of action & fun! The acting was great! I especially enjoyed watching Chloe Grace! She was a beast!!
I was a bit surprised to see Nicolas Cage play the role he played. But as usual, he did a great job.
The plot/story line was good & kept my attention. Everything gelled together nicely surprisingly. It was nothing like I expected it to be. I thoroughly enjoyed it!!! If you don't see anything else, see this movie!
