Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
Way better than expected .
Wow Solo exceeded my expectations it was fun , fast paced , gritty , good looking with great cgi . I wasn't sure about the casting of Alden as Solo but man he nailed it he looked the part & his acting was great as was all the cast .
Ron Howard did a great job & the story was excellent , the humour was well done & I loved all the new characters & villains especially that end cameo of Darth Maul - It blew me away ! It was also awesome to see the Kessel run & exactly how Han met Chewbacca & won the Falcon .
I think a lot of people out there are sceptical about Solo for various reasons but rest assured Solo is better than you ever thought it could be....
The Stunning Last Jedi
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Is a film that needed to play it safe in some regards. It was introducing new characters, new worlds, and trying to restore a fan base that felt burned by the prequels. It succeeded in establishing a baseline for the sequel trilogy, and that baseline has allowed writer-director Rian Johnson to move the franchise forward with the stunning
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Although, like The Force Awakens, it takes more than a few beats from the Original Trilogy, Johnson feels eager to subvert our expectations, challenge the archetypes the series was founded on, and take bold steps to establishing a new concept of what a Star Wars movie can be while still feeling very much in line with previous films in the franchise. ,from the film's stunning craft and confident storytelling.
If The Force Awakens was a matter of giving fans what they wanted, then The Last Jedi is giving them what they need, which is more complex characters and themes that break free of the traditional archetypes and mythic tropes the franchise was founded upon.
Even if you can feel the film's runtime as it heads to the climax, there's no shortage of appreciation for what Johnson has accomplished. I won't be surprised if fans start openly wondering if The Last Jedi is better than A New Hope or Empire, although I think it's clear that the film surpasses The Force Awakens even if the sequel's success is partly due to the unglamorous groundwork The Force Awakens had to accomplish. There are so many moments and details I want to dig into with The Last Jedi, but I don't want to spoil the many reveals, twists, and turns that make the movie such a wonderful experience. I lost count of the jaw-dropping moments The Last Jedi presents, and it's a movie I can't wait to revisit.
"Bloody" Awesome !
I'm a huge fan of the Saw franchise & I never saw this coming a Prequel an a Sequel all rolled into one , my mind is blown away . Jigsaw is brilliantly written as they all are , the traps are especially good & the twist was incredible "spoiler coming" that we were watching a prequel game all along ! and the reveal of Jigsaw so we think he's alive ! my jaw was on the floor ! the 7 years has been worth the wait as Jigsaw exceeded my expectation .
OMG Where do I start : 1.The 4.2 rating is a disgrace , 2.$40 mill worldwide is a disgrace (the books have sold 170 mill?), 3.People who rated it less than 5 - what on earth ???, 4.Great new cast - casting was perfect , 5.Great story , 6.Funny as hell , 7.I'm a depressed person & was laughing out loud , how dear these fellow IMDb users rate this great Wimpy movie so low - what the heck is wrong with you people ??? 8. Can't wait for the next one with this cast , 9. I give up.....
Rogue One (2016)
This is the War in Star Wars .
I ticked Spoilers but there will be hardly any so read on . R1 is just plain awesome & one of the best Star Wars movies ever it is : Visually Stunning , beautifully shot , great Characters who you care about , great cameo's from familiar characters , the most epic stunning & best space battle of the entire saga , the best Darth Vader scene ever , some great humour too especially by K2- SO he steels the show & makes you laugh out loud in some scenes . R1 is probably better than TFA & right up there with TESB as possibly the no2 Star Wars movie , it's a dark & gritty war movie that will please fans , it's also fast paced & feels like an hour 15 not 2 hours but that's not a bad thing there's never a dull moment cause there's so many gorgeous thing to took at & a great score too .
Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
I call BS
ID:R was actually really good ! It's better than the first one by a wee margin , I saw it in 3D & the visual effects were stunning ! absolutely fantastic so I call BS to the score of 5.7 !!! that is an insult & please ignore that score the movie is way better than that . Haters can hate all they want but ID:R is a pop corn flick , you know the one where you switch your brain off at the door & just lose yourself for 2 hours & enjoy the carnage & great escape from your mundane life . I do admit there was a lot of cheese in the movie but hey who cares cause I didn't & dam enjoyed it ! as for Will Smith shame on you as everyone else returned & didn't ask for $50 mill & looked as though they had a great time .
This is the Star Wars movie you were looking for !
Not to many spoilers here but man this is a Star Wars movie of epic proportions & it was awesome to say the least , the new big 3 are great Rey & Finn work brilliantly together , the old big 3 are at their best although Luke Skywalker is only in it very briefly at the end but looks fantastic look out for him to take a major role in episode 8 . Kylo Ren makes Vader look tame he is evil to the core but also a great villain who is very powerful with the dark side & is very good with his sword . You certainly won't be disappointed with this Star Wars movie's it's right up their with Empire Strikes back as one of the best Star Wars movies ever made or better than any movie ever made period .
A great addition .
I thought part 3 was an excellent addition to the series & brings back Sarah Butler as Jennifer Hills / Angela which was as awesome idea . Many years have passed since Sarah's brutal rape & revenge from the first movie & now is in rape group therapy & it all kicks off from there where she goes on a vengeance spree to take care of a few nasty rapist / murderer's . The movie also has some of the most brutal kills of the series & I was very excited about that cause these men truly deserved it & there was a nice twist that carries out through the film so if you liked the first 2 movies in the series you'll really appreciate this one as well .
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Better then I could have imagined .
I saw Age of Ultron last night here in New Zealand yes that's right U.S.A I saw it on the 22nd of April ! and OMG this goes up a level on the last Avengers , if I could rate it higher than 10 then I would...it's blew me away especially when the Avengers had to get recruit 3 more Avengers just to beat Ultron & Ultron is the coolest villain you have ever seen & superbly voiced by Spader . All the gang is at their best & the humor is excellent & just the right amount , the action is amazing & the cgi looks fantastic...Hawke eye's role is expanded & we learn a lot more about him & we also learn more about Black Widow & I love the romance between her & Hulk . Age of Ultron also sets up Civil War & Infinity war so buckle in those should be just as awesome .
A Hell of a Ride
The Battle of the five armies is more than just another blockbuster it delivers us the purpose and the heart of the story finally , this is the Hobbit movie we have been hoping for . It's bloody , dark & utterly excellent . This is a War story & the movie does not hang around the film opens exactly where part 2 ends with Smaug swooping down over Lake-town & laying waste to it with an incredible sequence . Up in the mountains the dwarfs look on racked with guilt as they have helped cause this horror . Even with the unbelievable battle going on you did not once loose track or concern of the various plot threads going on . Where the first film takes to long to get anywhere & the second film sagged between set pieces this film roars into life from the first frame & doesn't let up for a moment & ends quickly , satisfyingly , and on one perfectly well judged note . The special effects are spectacular and beautifully integrated . The acting particularly Martin Freeman's portrayal of Bilbo Baggins is just extraordinary ! . The Battle of the Five Armies feels like the reason this trilogy exists , it is complete & exactly as it needed to be .
This movie is awesome &
5.6 out of 10 is an insult what because all you Korean loving fan boys don't want an American version ? . What about all the people who don't watch foreign films...are we suppose to miss out on this awesome story ? well thanks god for Spike Lee to remake it & thanks to Josh Brolin for an awesome performance...he lost wait put on wait went all out for this role . Believe me people the true rating for this movie should be similar to the original OldBoy 8.4 , I read one of the reviews for the original & it said for 5 minutes after you just sat their with your mouth open in awe & that's how I felt after watching the remake so don't listen to the haters go & see this movie especially if you haven't seen the original & were put off by the low rating on here .
Epic Middle Entry to Middle Earth .
Went to the midnight session of the DOS here in New Zealand as we get it a little earlier than the States :) and boy was my mind blown as you basically never see what we saw on the screen in other movies , the cgi was flawless and amazing & you must see it in 3D ! as there are a few treats for the 3D version . The DOS was a perfect middle film of a trilogy more action than the first & the story builds to an epic climate with a cliff hanger ending ! that will leave you salivating for the final movie so basically the movie has no ending & leaves you in on the edge of your seat wanting more & thinking the movie should be longer so be prepared for that . The scene with the spiders , the Elves fighting the Orcs & the end battle with Smaug will leave you amazed & in awe ! so get out and see this movie now you won't be disappointed .
A Good Day to Die Hard (2013)
Best action movie in along time !
5.4 on IMDb "ARE YOU KIDDING ME" !!! this is surely a miss print or a mistake or the site has been hacked !....A Good Day to Die Hard is one of the best action movies I've seen in along time with a great easy to understand plot...It's just a great popcorn movie to take your mind of things , hell it was never meant for Oscar consideration...the thing is these haters out there get on the band wagon & rate movies 1 and actually have never seen the movie they think it's cool to do this "well it's not " ! I really think I must be going crazy or something cause I can't believe I saw the same movie that it rated 5.4 am I missing something ? it should be rated at least 6.8 - 7.0 I've seen far worse movie rated higher than 5.4 .
Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013)
Star Trek : ID !!!
J.J Abrams has to be one the all time great directors his vision for Star Trek is outstanding what a joy ride this movie is , a visually stunning master piece . The villain who you must guess is Khan played superbly by Benedict Cumberbatch & I mean superbly ! he stole the show really he was a one man wrecking crew who managed to single handedly take down a Klingon army & destroy half of Star Fleet . All the cast were great especially the cameo form Leonard Nimoy , also the visual effects were stunning & the pace of the film , humor & action were all put together brilliantly . The great thing is we are in very safe hands for Star Wars Episode 7 so go see Star Trek : ID you won't be disappointed .
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Iron Man is better than ever !
What an awesome summer movie Iron Man 3 is , it's up there with The Avengers maybe even better , Robert Downey JR never fails to deliver & Ben Kinsley was brilliant as the Mandarin one of the most evil villain's ever ! . The action was spectacular & the acting & story second to none ... there are more Iron Man suits than Tony Stark can cope with but it's all good in the end , there is a lot of female's in action roles which makes a change & yes even Pepper gets in on it , so this Iron Man movie is definitely a must see summer film so don't hesitate get out & see it as soon as you can , take your mum your dad your kids they will all love it .
The Tall Man (2012)
5.9 / 10 is a ridiculous score on this site & proves people are strange to say the least , this movie challenges you beyond belief you just can't work out what is going on , you think one thing & then this movie turns thattheory on it's head...this is a very rear quality in a movie . If people gave it a low score because they were expecting a blood & guts horror film then shame on them...this movie is way superior to that anyone who gave the tall man less than a 7 surely has a low IQ & is of the same ilk as the towns folk in the movie " everyone has their own opinion" etc etc etc but when do you draw the line on that cliché ? ...............
An Unexpected Brilliance !
11 hours ago I went to the midnight session of the Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey in 48fps and after a few hours sleep I can tell you that I was totally blown away ! without a doubt the best movie of the year & one of the best movies I've seen . In my opinion this one is better then any of the Lord of the rings movies not by much but just better in scope action & special effects...the 48fps is awesome to say the least & I had no trouble adjusting so if you get a chance go & see it in 48fps . Bilbo Baggins is a great character full of life & his time with Gollum stole the show . The movie starts with an awesome flash back of the Dragons attack on the lonely mountain & comes to a great moment with Frodo & Bilbo...the battles , action , scenery & special effect will blow you away...any negative reviews should be ignored , believe me I've seen a lot of movies & this one is right up there with the best of all time & when the audience claps & you have that feeling you've seen something special - you know your on to a winner ! .
Hostel: Part III (2011)
Absolutely brilliant !
Hostel 3 is one of the best horror's Iv'e seen in quite awhile , it was suspenseful , gory , action packed with a few twists in to boot . Don't believe the haters they are just sad people who can't enjoy movies - if you are a fan of this type of movie then you must like it cause I've seen a lot of these types of movies & Hostel 3 stands out as one of the best . The movie is set in Las Vagas which works really well for a Hostel movie & is a very very good direct to video movie & better than a lot of horrors released in cinema . Don't be fooled by the low rating on this site as I'm convinced users give this sort of movie 1 star & have actually never seen the movie or any like it as they are hating losers like all the rest of you who give Hostel 3 low marks ! .
178 users should be booted out !
178 users gave MI:4 1/10....this is ridiculous to say the least these users must have never seen the movie !!! MI:4 is the best MI movie & has the most mind blowing stunts & action almost ever seen on film & is the best action film of 2011 if not the best film of 2011 period . Tom Cruise is back & better than ever is personal life has some calm to it & now he will see the rewards of that , Simon Pegg is awesome as a comic relief...to the users who gave MI:4 1/10 you need to give away movies & don't watch them anymore they are not you cup of tea...you have absolutely no idea what a good movie is & you have absolutely no idea period .
Bad Teacher (2011)
Get a life !!!
It amazes me that the sad losers come on here & bash a movie that is funny light hearted & gives you a nice feeling watching it . All I can say is good god what is wrong with you ! how can anyone give this movie 1 / 10 ??????? I cannot understand this do these persons have any of the following : 1. Absolutely no sense of humor 2. No life 3. A dull life 4. No sex life 5. Homosexual 6. dead 7. stupid 8. got a bad haircut 9. can't get it up 10. brain dead . I'M SICK OF THESE PEOPLE ! , STOP WATCHING MOVIES they are not for you ! go do something else like drinking tea with your grandma , go shopping with your partner , play with some balls , play with your dog , play with a sheep....you see there is more to do you whining little girls .
Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)
What on earth is up with the trailer !!!
I take it we are going to get a far better movie as an extended version on the DVD ??? because the U.S trailer had about 90 percent content on it that was not in the movie ??? that is a joke as far as I'm concerned & people should feel ripped off big time . As for what we got in the theater was OK , it's a very slow build up with a few scares that similar from the first two movies but as usual from a paranormal activity movie things don't get good until right at the end when the real scares come through . In summary I still feel ripped off this movie doesn't deserve the box office take it has however it would have if the trailer content was there so now we know how they are going to sell the DVD " extended version with 10 minutes extra content not seen in theaters " !!! .
Road Train (2010)
I've always thought people on IMDb were a bit harsh on movies & I always seem to see the good in movies & I've seen 100's & 100's of movies & all most always give 6/10 or more until now ! . I see what people see in this movie & it was bad & one of the first movies I have looked at my watch & thought about just switching it off or fast forwarding but I managed just to stay till the end & the only reason I gave it 2 stars is the end of the movie kind of got better & ended in a good direction with another couple going down the same dark path as the previous couple's . There were a couple of good stunts in the movie but that's about it not much else the acting was terrible & the story was not much better either & I'm normally a fan of Aussie movies Wolf Creek & the Reef to name 2 .
Saw 3D (2010)
I went the extra mile & was so worth it .
I have been a huge Saw fan since part 1 & have loved them all especially part 6 which is my favorite in the series . I live in New Zealand & we have had the last two Saw movies 5 & 6 released here in October but this year for some unknown reason Saw 3D is not released here till March 2011 !!! so I said stuff this & booked myself to go to Brisbane Australia to see Saw 3D & I can tell you it was Worth every penny ! oh my god this is the best Saw movie or any horror movie I have ever seen & the final twist will blow you away I was left speechless . There were more & better traps than seen before...the game was played out very well , the acting was excellent & also the flash backs were toned right down which was a good thing cause recently there was probably to many flash backs so I highly recommend Saw 3D the 3D was a bonus but please watch all the saw movies before you go as if you have never seen a saw movie you just wont understand most of it .
Halloween II (2009)
Better than expected
I'm a huge Halloween fan but alas I live in New Zealand & Rob Zombies Halloween 2 was not released here in theaters so I had to wait until I could buy it off amazon on DVD .
For months I have read & heard about the negativity towards H2 but all of this was unwarranted as H2 is probably the best Halloween movie yet . It had strong performances by all the cast especially Scout Taylor-Compton also Micheal Myers is portrayed as human not the super natural can't die freak of the originals....I think the dream sequences worked well & showed how Micheal was driven to reunite his family in the after life .
The opening sequence in the hospital was awesome & the end sequence with the stand off between Micheal & all the police was awesome too so overall a fantastic entry into the Halloween family & just can't understand why more people didn't like the film , I thinks it's mainly to do with Rob Zombies style but in this case it works well within the Hallowen saga .
PS....18 months after my first review I have something to tell , the above review came from watching the unrated directors cut in other words I never saw the theatrical version until now that is . There is one massive difference from the unrated directors cut to the theatrical version that is the endings are very different !!! In the Unrated Directors cut Micheal throws Lumis out of the shed & takes his mask off & says die to Lumis before stabbing him once & then Micheal is gunned down by about 100 guns & then Laurie comes out & is also shot by a gun happy cop & looks as though she's dying when it fades out to the asylum sceen . Now the theatrical version has Micheal killing Lumis in the shed in a far more violent manner & then Micheal is shot in the shed through the window by the cops & falls on some sharp machinery & Laurie proceeds to stab Micheal about 10 times & then walks out of the shed with Mickeals mask on & then fads out to the asylum sceen so in summery the theatrical version is much better because Micheals face should never have been shown & him talking was a big no IMHO so anyone out there please don't bother with the unrated directors cut as the ending is not what it should be .
Saw VI (2009)
Best Yet !
Just seen Saw 6 in New Zealand as it opens a day before the states & it was awesome & the best Saw movie yet . There are more & better traps than any previous Saw movie & the gore scale has been raised also all is revealed in this one Jigsaws legacy has almost come to an end but there will be just a little more to come in Saw 7 ( 3D ) . There are bigger Twists at the end of Saw 6 than all the Saw movies combined . Saw 6 is a real treat for Saw fans & horror buffs it is wonderfully written & directed , the continuing story line from the previous 3 Saw movies comes full circle & is an amazing story that has unfolded " Go see it you'll love it" .
