Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Thor: The Dark World - What's coming from the sequel of the epic movie of Thor? Awesomeness! I am already excited for the movie to hit the theater, now I am extremely thrilled once watching it. I think it was more into the movie itself than what to do with the prequel of it, or even The Avengers Movie. I mean, it certainly can be enjoyable enough even if you didn't watch any of the other two movies. I am a big fan of Loki, and that would certainly escalated even much better after seeing his stunning tricks in this movie. Believe me, you would be too. I think it was a solid story plus actions in it. More than just entertained by the hilarious scenes that keep on flashing upon the screen, the Max of 2 Broke Girls (Kat Dennings) sprinkled more dusty jokes that would make you laugh. I am a big fan of Marvel Avengers Game on Facebook too, which help me love this movie so much more with all those characters such Sif, and not to mention its newly Special Ops 14. And if you're a fan of Chuck, the Zachary Levi played quite a role in this movie as well. I can't explain how much I love this movie, unless you watch it yourself. As for me, it deserves a super straight full stars in a role!
The Lone Ranger (2013)
It was fun!
It was two hours and a half when every scenes were captured with such good drama, action and humors. It was certainly a Johnny Depp's kind of movie. The storyline was kept simple but amazingly entertaining. It wasn't really filled with actions and shooting scenes but I found it really entertaining and worth-watching. It definitely another Pirates of Caribbean's sort of movie. In fact, Tonto really looked like Captain Jack Sparrow. Mr. Depp is a very talented actor and for that, this is a really good movie to be watched. Do not forget the Lone Ranger, John Reid played by Armie Hammer. This prince of Mirror Mirror certainly a good mix with Tonto. It was hilarious yet full of entertaining shooting actions. Even the drama was great on screen. I guess it was a great legend to be told of the Lone Ranger. Of course, the best reason to be reviewed was the fun parts. I would say it was average, especially when it cost almost 150minutes of watching. But I can assure you that it was indeed fun and entertaining. You know how Mr Depp's movie always is, right?
White House Down (2013)
Just Another Olympus Has Fallen?
White House Down - Seriously, why it should always about White House and "Olympus"? Yes, it was the same, almost the same storyline like the "Olympus Has Fallen", which was screened a few weeks ago. Even the traitors were merely the same, except WHD never go internationally blaming the North Korea but only the Arabs. It was less serious than OHF I might say, but I guess the role of Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum with such action and a little bit comical was a great show too. There was even a child involved. Although this child was figured as a hero herself. I think the Olympus had a better villain than WHD but the twisted ending was so much better in this. But still, I can't help myself to see their roles (both in OHF and WHD), were all the same. *spoilers alert!* I like the OHF heroic Gerrard Butler style more than Channing Tatum but he was still a good actor here. The strategies of being mysterious and criminally intelligent were okay but still not enough. The actions were many but wasn't full-packed. I think this movie deserves much better reviews and stars to be liked, but the most important reason why not, is the fact that OHF had already been there on screen before it, and the beauty of it's plotting and storyline was too predicted. But still, worth for a watch.
World War Z (2013)
It supposed to be better than just an average movie.
World War Z - It wasn't the first story about deadly virus and zombie. So, it wouldn't be unusual if it was compared to the other movies we have been watching for decades. I don't really like the storyline and the plotting, not because it was bad, but it was too cliché with some other movies, including the Resident Evil's series. Though I was thrilled with the actions and how it was created. Every scenes was enjoyable and exciting enough. From time to time, it wasn't wasted for nothing. But again, for a science basis people like me, the idea of virus creating zombies was too lame and invalid. I think it was basically brilliant to manipulate such a good fact in bacteriology/virology, but it certainly lack of relevancy in pathology theory. Take a good lesson in how it sorted out the potential hosts to spread. It was a possible theory, but not in this implicated condition. Well, I guess it was a movie for general viewers, certainly to be enjoyed, not for us the scientists. Overall, it was a good movie with good message and point of actions, but still too much to be improved of. It was very enjoying though. And maybe, not a very good movie to those anti-Israeli Muslims who believe in Conspiracy Theory. Just saying.
Man of Steel (2013)
What defines perfection!
Man of Steel - I thought it's gonna be like The Amazing Spiderman at first. Same storyline, same plot, and just a little bit fresh look and technology touch up for a new millennial version of a superhero movie. Watching it for the first hour, I was about to give it a solid 4/5, until it went up to such perfection level of watching satisfaction. The storyline was quite impressive, without losing its originality but a better improvement in line. The plotting of the synopsis was done amazingly different than the other versions of Superman we ever saw in the theater. And characteristically, it was perfectly put on such great screenplay. I wasn't sure if Henry Cavill was a suitable role player with Amy Adams for the Clark-Loise characters, but through out the movie, they seemed like doing the best as it should. Clark is a good choice. And I can see there's somewhere in the scenes, Tom Welling is never left behind for the heroic role. He resembles him very much. And not to forget, there are some extra credit deserved to this movie, which somehow balanced the movie to its perfection. I even love the arts of its photography. It was full of drama and actions, emotions and everything else needed to be there in a great, legendary film should be. Everything was perfectly there, from the storyline itself, the plotting, the casting, the cinematography, the screenplay, the actions and all the effects, the plus and minus, and the everything. It was perfectly superb! If you're ever wanted for a great movie, this is one of your definite option! Almost there, full stars!
After Earth (2013)
Just Another M. Night Shyamalan's Movie
After Earth - Am I watching the next M. Night Shyamalan's movie? It supposed to be a good movie with Jaden and Will Smith on board. I thought the story itself was strong enough to grab our attention, but the screenplay is quite a disappointment. It was good, but not good enough. Can you imagine how I ended up criticizing their costumes instead, rather than to focus on the bigger picture? It was too ambitious to make it great while ended up being a lot worse. Maybe not that bad. The storyline was okay. I might say it was an 'above average' level, and the acting is, definitely good. But the presentation itself wasn't as good as expected. There are too much of things I wish to see, which I usually watch in another sci-fiction movie, wasn't in this movie. It's okay, really, but just average. And sometimes, I was like, "Ahh, no way!".. "Eh, how could..?", you know? Come on, it's three. Or another half for the effort.
Just love the blood spilled!
Hansel & Gretel - The slashing and bloodshed was major. Actions and storyline were both okay. I can still predict the role of Mother and Mina pretty well, even for a few minutes of watching. I love the kinship of both Hansel and Gretel. They're very sweet as siblings. Overall, it was very entertaining. Plus, watching the 3D version really rolled the eyes very well. Though I felt having the guns alone not enough, the facts of presenting Diabetes mellitus and Insulin at the age of time was unacceptably weird. It's 6 out of 10. And the Hawkeye of Avenger should deserve another star! Yes, I would recommend you to watch it!
Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
Silver Linings Playbook - What a story of this Oscar nominated actor, Bradley Cooper was acted for? It seemed valid for the role but pretty confusing for the story. I mean, it wasn't really an entertaining movie, but the whole story was poorly elaborated. What was really happening, or what was actually happen then to his ex was unexplained. The story was hardly about fate or faith. Too much of impossibilities, but fortunately it was created creatively. It was adorable for Pat and his routine, and sweetly, when the whole story of getting his ex back, while keeping what (or who) he was with. One thing I love move about this movie was the motivational values it might represent to us, the viewers. Kinda okay, and it might deserve 4 to 5 stars..
Jack Reacher (2012)
Jack Reacher - I had been persuaded for a thousand times to take a look upon this movie. Of course, knowing Mr. Cruise as the leading actor, it's certainly not just an ordinary film. Plus, it was adapted by the One Shot book. Quite a masterpiece. What I love the most regarding this movie is, the puzzles and the intelligent mind of the investigator, Mr. Jack Reacher played by the man of Mission Impossible, Tom Cruise. I was looking forward for every moves and steps taken by Jack to be impressed. I think they did pretty well. The element of surprises was there but not enough. The time passed for more than two hours was spent worthily, but the plot just after the entire puzzles solved, which also involves the hunting of the main culprit was a little bit inadequate. Even the end itself wasn't good enough. It was worth for 3 and a half. Should be very recommended to be watched, but unfortunately, wasn't good enough for the satisfaction.
Upside Down (2012)
Imaginatively Brilliant Love Story!
Upside Down - There's an epic love story other than Romeo and Juliet, or Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater of the Titanic. This is one great story I would certainly recommend to those who seek for a legendary, extraordinary love epitomes. I can't imagine to live in a world where gravity were purely discriminative. The storyline might seem pretty cliché, but the idea of two distinct world of differences was an imaginatively creative. Not to mention, watching the sweetly talented 21's hero, Jim Sturgess as Adam Kirk with the beautiful Spider-Man's MJ, Kirsten Dunst, played Eden, the long-lost love of Adam. Of course, theoretically it was never possible for a many reasons, but the idea was greatly presented. Screw the universe's rule! Love's gonna conquer it all. And yeah, as you watched this movie, you might think a question that I was thinking, which will be the reason Eden might be able to live in both world. No, she wasn't really could. Great movie, nice CGI. That seemed pretty obvious too. And apparently, it's still beautifully scenic. A 4 of 5, plus another half for the idea and Mr. Adam.
Finally! Truly Thrilling!
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 - Seriously, what a story!! I never thought I'm going to love this trilogy movies. Other than skipped the New Moon, forced for the Eclipse, and disappointed for the first part of Breaking Dawn, I was extremely thrilled for this one! Honestly, I never felt some much blood pumping into my heart watching movie, not that many I might say. Maybe the real deal is due to how boring the first part, for this exciting plot for the second. Might just be a better reason for both are supposed to be in a chapter, not separated. But of course, it would take more than just two hours of running. The best part of it, the part two really packed with actions and surprises that we were dying to see in the previous movies. Not after the first one I guess. Seriously (I keep saying this, am I?), I was like, "Oh, my God!", "Wow!", "Oh, sh*t", "Serve you right!", "Take that!", "You go girl!", "That's like it", "Now we talking!" all the way the storyline. Maybe after some times of addicted to Vampire's Diaries and Charmed, this Breaking Dawn Part 2 really entertained my thirst upon actions and fight, with some powers and abilities. There are humor too, to add, even though the scenes weren't that much. And truly, you gonna love how it satisfied our lust of actions and maintaining the happy ending for everyone. Seriously, again, I was dying to watch this kind of exciting, thrilling movie like this one. I can't give enough stars to five. It certainly deserves more than that, and for the very last credit as well. Yeah, 5 multiplied by many more, and obviously A-MUST-WATCH movie! No, I don't spell it wrong.
TED - It has been awhile after my last watching. TED wasn't really my ultimate choice for this weekend's outing movie moment. But it surely relaxed and gave such a pleasure for a full week of stress. Missing the Eid away from my beloved parents, TED did help me putting a little smile on my face. It was miraculously funny. Amazingly hilarious. I love the plot, plus with every good-looking, awesome, famous stars in it. Lot of amazing special appearances I might say. It was well done, and a bit emotional. You gonna love it, though it wasn't some kind of movie you will be dying to watch. I still remember some part where I can't stop laughing for a quite some times. And seriously, although it was cliché, and too often to watch upon, there are lot of reasons to love this movie. Things that gonna make your day just great. And to those friends of mine out there, I really want you to watch this movie, because someday, you'll gonna be reminded about friendship. A real one. Out of five, I gonna give 3. And another half for the cameos, including the last picture you gonna see in this movie ;)
Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)
Okay, just okay.
Resident Evil: Retribution - Back to basis. I would certainly recommend this movie because it never disappoint us for its action. But one thing I think they should improve is the storyline. It was so 'game', which the story exactly remake the first Resident Evil chronology. It was okay, but somehow we need something more than just the same storyline and actions for a few episodes now. Stop recycling the already-good-elements and start produce something new and thrilling. Even the choreography was predicted enough. Too much of The Matrix and Underworld. Seriously, you're good. It's time to be better. 3 and a half.
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
The Dark Knight Rises - It had been speculated as the best movie on screen, with some overwhelming title as the movie of the year. I guess it was good enough, as expected, but nothing particularly the best movie throughout the year..just yet. The rises part itself was put up so greatly, taking the continuous scene from the past to remind us all over again about this fallen hero. Branded as an enemy to his own dearly city of Gotham, Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) buried himself in darkness and silence, out of the peaceful city he created by the name of Harvey Dent. Alongside with Commissioner Gordon, Fox and Alfred (too..?), the story allied a few other members to Wayne's party especially Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) would turn-out to be his side-kick. In terms of actions, it certainly drove you to the excitement and a little bit suspense, and what it was more than excited to be watched, when a girl named Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) which then introduced as the Catwoman. I love Wayne's character more than others, as Mr. Bale gave an absolute pure character of the self Bruce Wayne or even the masked heroic gentleman of Batman. Not to be left out, Anne Hathaway really fronted with this character, and she suited herself with Seline's naive, canny, and sexy plays. Watching Patrick Bateman of the America Psycho and Ella of the Ella Enchanted really made it seriously enjoyable. Introducing Bane (Tom Hardy) and Miranda Tate (Marion Cotillard) and some part of Ra's Al Ghul (Liam Neeson) telling us the another story of the Dark Knight. Some twist plots was a great effort but for me, it was readable, and yeah, I am right! For 164minutes of watching, it worth more than just excitement and enjoyment. More than that, the story itself with strong storyline, enough actions, and great surprises. It bound to a great name, and it rises again just to watch it falling back where it started (and maybe, rises again soon). Obviously, it was too much to pronounce it the best movie on screen, but certainly a full starred rating movie.
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
The other alternate version of Spiderman, okay!
The Amazing Spiderman - I am seriously don't know what to expect from it. It certainly a different perspective of the previous version of Spiderman, though the storyline and some part of the tragedy points were exactly the same. Thinking as one modern guy watching for scientific approach, this one surely much better and logical than the Tobey McGuire's version. One of the most 'thumb-up-ed' element within it was the casting. It was good to keep on watching Mr. McGuire as the pathetic, hidden hero of Peter Parker, but putting Andrew Garfield (Eduardo Saverin of The Social Network) to Parker's face really made it different, and better version of Peter Parker. Even the heroic girlfriend of Parker from Mary Jane Watson (of Kirsten Dunst) to Gwen Stacy (of Emma Stone) was another great turned out version of this movie. Top of all that, I was excited for Aunty May's casting by Sally Field (known for her role as supermom, Nora Walker in Brothers and Sisters), as she really did charmed me for her character in the movie. She was destined for that role, and touched us all by it. Some other characters, such Flash Thompson (Chris Zylka) also keep this one alternately special than the previous one. I guess, even with such a same storyline, The Amazing Spiderman creates its own name for it. Refreshing and variant. I could say, technically it was good, including the actions and the effect stuffs. Except for one to the other shots, the CGI technique was too obvious, added to its some technical goofs that can easily discovered at a glance, such when Dr. Conners becomes the lizard, he becomes far more massive than his human state, shredding his clothes - logically, this should leave him naked. Yet after his first transformation, he is seen in the sewer with a towel/robe on his body. Also, for some plots approaching to the end of the climax, the scenic story of everyone trying to help Spiderman overcoming the evil Lizard by crane, helicopter and even traffic staffs was too much and overdoing. It seems to get itself a continuity later on, but I can't say that I am excited for the sequel, though I prefer this version much better than the other three. I think 3 is fairly enough.
Abe is a myth?
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - It has been circulated for his greatness and determination. The father of all men in United State resembled too much of greatness to be rewritten in such plot and story. The myth and history combined into a fantasy epic film wasn't impress me much. For a huge character in a very tremendous journey of Abe, Benjamin Walker made it quite well. Alongside with his fellow friends, Henry Stugess (played by Dominic Cooper), Will Johnson (Anthony Mackie) and Joshua Speed (Jimmi Simpson), the struggle and adventure for a better nation free of vampires themed to the best brilliant attraction within this movie. Every aspect of action slot-visually or in storyline came out quite well though the CGI technique seemed too fragile and unreal in some parts of it. Speak to the moral values, every good wills or speeches, and the acts for greater kindness or versus the evil, the fact of Vampire Adam (Rufus Sewell) reminded me of some perspective where people keep turning our faith over something like this. But if you are some audiences looking for just entertainment and weekend out, this one certainly a good movie. Don't mind your logic too much. It may ruin your mood. And this isn't a history class but just fantasy after all. I shall give a solid four stars.
The Avengers (2012)
Meet expectation. But still the best.
The Avengers Movie - I don't really know what to expect. Massive disasters, huge rescue team. At first I don't really like the team up of Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, HULK, Hawkeye, and Black Widow in a squad against the naughty God of Loki. It is very true for a fictional movie to be irrational and illogical in some part of it, but the combination itself seemed weird, especially they came from a very different time and dimensions. Though it was explained very briefly in the movie, I still can't find it successful to convince me with it. I quite excited with the first 60minutes when the team was built up again, with all conflicts and funny stuffs. Thanks to Mr. Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) for his sense of humor. Actions were of course, as expected. You could never get enough of it. Though I might afraid you gonna find it somehow too 'easy' somehow, some part of it. My favorite character certainly goes to Miss Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) with her witty techniques of interrogation. The cast was used very wisely. They played a very beautiful role in this movie. Storyline of every superheroes movie wasn't really worth discuss for. Good versus evil, justice win over the bad guy's plan and etc. Two things I like the most are the enough time (141minutes) with no boredom, and when the teammates were scattered all around. But I don't really think when the superhero music played and they assembled with Capt. Steve Rogers took the lead was the climax that we really wanted to watch. Old-fashioned, and too usual. And I believe the ending wasn't that satisfying too. It was very entertaining though. Worth every penny. And I don't know, may be it's still one of the best movie in this year. Should get almost 5. Almost.
Dark Shadows (2012)
Entertaining. But just too Depp.
Dark Shadows - It's good to watch Johnny Depp on screen. His acting could never disappointed you. Directing by Tim Burton - Official Page, the scenes of Barnabas Collins was first time in the world of 1971 after centuries left in the dark, lonely coffin, reminded me of his appearance in Edward Scissorhands. Especially when he was taking his first breakfast on the dinner table. Of course, listing Depp in a film would never make it less interesting. The other characters would certainly play so good role too. It's kinda a very funny humorous film implemented in a complete plot of the Collins-Witch revenges. It was a very nice story, and happened to be a very good use of CGI too. You would definitely find it very entertaining. Too much of funny part that I rather say nothing much but to ask you go watching this movie by yourself. It's 3 and a half stars worth. May be 4.
I could make it work for me!
SAFE - You should remind yourself about Transporter which the legendary action Hero, Jason Statham put such a great acting to certainly made us dying for another sequels. Though I believe it would be impossible for this one. But again, impossible is nothing right? Audiences were talking about the greatly expected movies such as The Avengers Movie, or perhaps to those who prefer Johnny Depp on screen would go for Dark Shadows. Don't get me wrong, I do like both of these movies even though I don't quite have the time to take a watch out (heh..), but Safe was really a great movie. First reason why, is the fact that you'll never get bored by the plot and obviously the actions, which is very synonyms to Mr. Statham's movies. You'll be surprised when the first 80minutes was never realized until the movie almost done! Luke Wright was very similar to Frank Martin's role in The Transporter, except he never transport thing, and never get paid. Eventually... (I should not say anything about this, go watch!) It was really a satisfying movie. The genius Mei (played by Catherine Chan) with the every gangs and the key/code to the mystery, you gonna be thrilled. Just don't expect too much, but I can guarantee you the 94minutes of watching will be just great! Still, put the Avengers and the Dark Shadows (yes, I am!) on your list! A 4-stars!
Plain and simple.
Lockout - It was the year of 2079. Future-thing is always crowded with CGI. And of course, some unexplainable phenomena. But again, of course, this is a fiction. Actually you can rip that out because other than the idea that the super incredible prison house were then built up in the space, there was very less CGI used. Unless the very first introduction part. The plot was quite normal. Normal like, so-so. It looked like Prison Break, except the prisoners weren't that smart nor passionate enough to run from it. Some kind of Mission: Impossible but obviously can't wow you that much. It was straight and very simple. Actions was just average, and somehow quite predicted. The King Edward VII in The King's Speech, Guy Pearce as Snow was very amazing character, and seriously hilarious! He did save the day! Not just the girl, but us--the audiences. I wasn't really like Maggie Grace (Alice in Alice in Wonderland)'s character, Emilie Warnock. She really was a pain in butt. Plus, her so-called kindness and heroic acts kinda lame and pathetically unnecessary. Up to the end, of course, some surprises you shall find. And I'm guessing, it wasn't really ended quite well. Either there's another sequel, or it really was ended up quite unpleasantly. Since I can't find much awesomeness in it, only think it deserved 3.
Heart-pumping Aliens War
Battleship - This is not a Transformers or John Carter movie. But it's far better than them both for its awesomeness. Not a musical type of movie also, though Rihanna was there playing a quite promising role. This movie certainly an epic! Two hours more or less with full of great actions and amazing plot. Begins with someone who did nothing but craps, Alex Hopper (played by John Carter's hero, Taylor Kitsch) troubled everyone including his beloved brother, Stone Hopper (True Blood's star of Alexander Skarsgård) by being immature and jackass. Forced by the 'incident', Alex was enlisted to the US Navy leaded by his brother. As time passed, the unchanged, Alex was then become one of the Lieutenant for his ship, trained in an international naval fleet (RIPCOMP-something, not sure) at Pearl Harbor together with Japanese Navy, leaded by Capt. Nagata (Tadanobu Asano aka Hogun in Thor) whom he didn't really like so much. (p.s: Do note yourself with Capt. Leu from Malaysia's Navy Force!). The story started to pump up your heart when they were out for training and discovered an armada of unknown origins, and forced to battle with them in order to thwart their destructive goals. The very important reason to mark this movie in a very great color, is how every part of its plot was filled with extremely thrilled actions and most importantly, you'll stunned by unstoppable brilliant tactics used by the Navy. You might not be able to breath accordingly. I'm warning you! I would also admire its visual effects and sound which is unbelievably realistic. Well, I might say, almost of it. There's still quite funny watching the very small boat didn't sway at all, when the very huge whale-like armada swam in and out of the ocean towards it. And they were so close to each other. But, honestly, it was a very good movie! There's a few scenes might remind you of some scenes from the other movie like Transformer and Titanic. Seriously, it was worth for every penny! And not to mention how it made you feel like 2 hours wasn't really 120minutes! If you think Darkest Hour was a good movie, this one is twelve times better! Oh ya, remember that everyone can be a hero, and what is the most important thing? Kerjasama! (Teamwork!) A definite must-seen movie! Serious 5 for 5..! p.s: It was released in Malaysia on April 10. Second after Japan. Not even UK or US could watch it before us! So, go get your tickets now!!
