42 (2013)
10/10
Uplifting, earnest, brilliantly-acted, well-told & entertaining translates to being one of the best baseball movies ever made.
12 April 2013
The first movie of 13' i've seen, well actually the straight-to-DVD spoof 30 Nights of Paranormal Activity with the Devil Inside the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was but doesn't matter. 42 is exactly what I expected: an uplifting, earnest, well-told with honest emotion, well-acted & often entertaining flick of the legend Jackie Robinson. Chadwick Boseman (I remember him in the underrated The Express) soars as Jackie Robinson with great emotion & intensity, he hits it out of the ballpark. Harrison Ford gives one of his best performances of his career (award-worthy) as General Manager Branch Rickey. Nicole Beharie (who was also in The Express) is rock-solid as Robinson's wife Rachel.

The supporting players are great especially Andre Holland as Wendell the reporter, Alan Tudyk as the very mean-spirited Phillies manager Ben Chapman, Lucas Black as Pee Wee Rose, John G. McGinley as the announcer Red Barber & Christopher Meloni as the Brooklyn Dodgers manager (Robinson's as well). The classic use of music is awesome. 42 is one of the best baseball flicks ever made, it's that good IMO. Star-making performances from Boseman & Beharie, hopefully we'll see more from both in the future. A great movie from Oscar-winning writer/director Brian Helgeland (as writer, L.A. Confidential, Mystic River, Man on Fire). Now, let's make a Roberto Clemente biopic on the big screen please.

One of the most adorable & enjoyable animated flicks to come along in a long time.
5 November 2012
One of the most enjoyable & adorable animated flicks i've seen. First off, this could have easily been a Pixar film. It had that feel to it, storytelling, characters & short before the movie "Paperman", which was one of the best animated shorts i've seen. I loved the hell out of that short. Terrfic vocal performances from the actors. John C. Reilly is excellent as Ralph. Jane Lynch is great as Sgt. Calhoun. Alan Tudyk is awesome as King Candy. Jack McBrayer is one of biggest highlights here, giving an enjoyable & hilarious vocal performance as Fix-It Felix.

The best actor of the lot belongs to Sarah Silverman who gives one of her best if not the best performance of her movie career. I'm a fan of Silverman's (weirdly), I weirdly like hearing every single crazy thing that pops out of her mind that also comes out of her mouth. She has that "Kewpie doll" personality and puts it all on the line with the character Vanellope. Just a very adorable, very cute & lovable character voiced brilliantly by Silverman. I've always wanted the Oscars to have a animated vocal performance category, had they done that, I would immediately just give the Oscar to Sarah, period.

Wreck-It Ralph is hands down, adorable, funny, action-packed, entertaining & well-made. I'm a video gamer (of course, PS1, PS2, PS3, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Gamecube & Gameboy), I used to play arcade but not anymore. Brings out nostalgia & all gamers will easily get pleased (like me) with this. This is a just a good, old-fashion hopefully Oscar-winning animated movie.

Looper (2012)
10/10
One of the already many best sci-fi flicks of the last 4 years along with The Adjustment Bureau, Source Code, District 9 & Inception.
20 October 2012
Looper is thought-provoking, original, entertaining, action-packed, funny, intelligent & well-made movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is terrific as usual with the makeup most of his face to make himself look like Bruce Willis physically, toning down his voice and mannerisms to Bruce Willis as well. Bruce Willis is great, he's back in action once again (he's having himself a good year with this, Moonrise Kingdom & The Expendables 2). Jeff Daniels (reunited with both Gordon-Levitt & Johnson the director) is terrific in his small role. Emily Blunt (who is one of the best working young actresses today) gives the best performance of the cast as a vigilante mother who lives in a farm with her "gifted" son.

Rian Johnson is definitely a director to look out for after this, The Brothers Bloom & Brick under his belt, very talented guy. Nathan Johnson's score is worth-mentioning. Looper is now one of my top 5 favorite films of the year. Fantastic stuff.

Toy Story 3 (2010)
10/10
The best of the series in one of the best trilogies of all-time.
19 June 2010
11 years of waiting for a third and it was worth the damn wait. My goodness what a fantastic film, one of the best second sequels of all-time. It's great to see all (well, almost) the characters back. Randy Newman is back as the composer and gives another Oscar-worthy score. Toy Story 3 from the beginning to the end has very clever storytelling (they better win for screenplay at the Oscars next year), laughs, tears & action thanks to Pixar as is the case with them. This movie is amazing, mix with lots of laughs & tears. The ending will make you cry even if you don't want to, it will make you cry. Very easily, the best film of the year kicks Kick-Ass off the spot of the best film of the year. Toy Story 3 is another masterpiece from Pixar, their second best in my opinion (behind a three-way tie Wall-E, Finding Nemo & Ratatouille).

She's Out Of My League is a hard 10!!
26 March 2010
Funniest movie of the year so far (Youth In Revolt was recently the funniest). I loved it from the very beginning. Funny & usual supporting actor, Jay Baruchel is hilarious in his debut leading role & Alice Eve just like Portia Doubleday did for Youth In Revolt, is an up & coming gorgeous star (can't wait to see more of her in the future, she's definitely a 10).

Supporting players were excellent: TJ Miller (hud from Cloverfield) is the new Jason Lee, he's absolutely hilarious. Nate Torrence is excellent as the only friend of the group that's married and he steals a couple of scenes with ease. Mike Vogel (also from Cloverfield) has a couple scenes he steal. Krysten Ritter (Patty) steals every scene she's in as well & Kyle Bornheimer (Kirk's brother) as well.

She's Out Of My League may not be original but it's raunchy, hilarious, very watchable & has good heart. I give this a hard 10.

One of Scorsese's best work & the best film of the year so far.
21 February 2010
Just saw it 30 minutes ago or so and I absolutely loved it. Martin Scorsese is one of the best and most intelligent directors of all-time and proved it once again in this, his new movie "Shutter Island". The movie is interesting, crazy-minded & creepy from beginning to end. Leo Dicaprio gives another Oscar-worthy performance here and it's one of his best performances of his career. The score is also Oscar-worthy. The cinematography is superb. Now, a lot of people thought coming in this was going to be a scary, horror film based on the previews. It is not, it is a psychological thriller that messes with your mind and keeps you guessing a lot. Shutter Island is an amazing achievement from Martin Scorsese who redefined the genre that Alfred Hitchcock created. Despite it's confusing, seemed forced "twist" ending that didn't work, Shutter Island is an instant thriller classic in my books. The movie should get nominated for Best Lead Actor Performance by Dicaprio, Cinematography & Score. Can Shutter Island not be forgotten by votersof Oscar chances for a year?

The best action flick this summer.
5 August 2009
While Star Trek and Transformers 2 were my favorite action movies this summer, G.I. Joe came in and blew both out of the water completely!! The action is so non-stop and exhilarating that your jaws will drop immediately of how awesome the action sequences is, it just never lets up!! The acting is all right (better than both Transformers combined): Every girl's dream Channing Tatum did all right but started to go downhill throughout, Dennis Quaid as General Hawk was good with his role, Rachel Nichols as Scarlett was hot as usual and good with her role, The always-sexy Sienna Miller as Baroness was pretty good, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Heavy Duty did a good job, Joesph Gordon-Levitt as Cobra Commander was awesome, Said Taghmaoui as Breaker did good and provied most of the humor in the movie and Marlon Wayans as Ripcord(probably did the best acting of the lot) showed not only his serious side but his funny side as usual, he was funny.

G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra is not the best action film ever made but it is the best action flick of this summer. It's just a big budget brainless, always fun and extremely entertaining popcorn movie. Also, I came with high expectations with this movie because it just looked like my type of movie, a mix of: Star Trek, Transformers and Iron Man. All three movies that are some of my favorite action movies ever, G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra joins the list of my favorite action movies. If you were a fan of the toys, go see this and you will NOT be disappointed at all. If your a fan of movies like this: Star Trek, Transformers or Iron Man like me, go see this awesome action flick!!

More Than Worth The Wait.
25 June 2009
It was a gift!! More like a huge gift on my most anticipated film of the year, my god what a film! Transformers 2 is non-stop action-packed, exciting, funny & visually stunning. Reprising his role, Shia Lebeouf does a great, great job (did better here than in this first) using his own comedic style and full of emotions. Megan Fox is hotter than ever, had a little more to do here than in the original and did barely OK but still NEEDS to work on her acting, needs to fire her agent pronto!! Newcomer, Isabel Lucas does fairly well with her part. As for others reprising their roles: John Turturro, John Duhamel and Tyrese does their part very well like they did in the first. The Autobots and Decepticons were awesome and cooler than ever.

While, I loved the first Transformers, I loved this one even more. For those awful negative reviews, what you expect? Iron Man, The Dark Knight or Spider-Man 2? Transformers is never known for acting or it's plot, just robots beating the crap out of each other, full of non-stop action & the spectacular special and visual effects which is all we probably need from a Transformers movie. Back to the movie, like I said the visual effects are spectacular and the action almost never lets up. Steve Jablonsky's score is not as epic as the first but still, it's outstanding, very different (in a good way) and ONE of his best in my opinion. Transformers 2 might not take the title for the best summer movie of the year with Up and Star Trek in front of it but it's sure hell one of the best this year!!

Up (2009)
10/10
Pixar launches their funniest film out of their tank to date.
21 May 2009
What can I say about Pixar? Amazing?? Perfect?? Got to see this at the Cannes Film Festival in France (went on a trip with my family) and Pixar gives us another instant classic: Up.

The movie focuses on 78-year old man Carl Fredrickson's (voiced by Edward Asner) life who always had a dream of going on a journey to South American to see the wilds of it. He buys thousands of balloons just to attach it to his house to float up in the sky. So, he starts with his journey up in the sky in his house with balloons attached to it. Suddenly, he's not alone and somebody's at the door while flying, it's a boy scout kid named Russell. He invites the boy with him on his journey to South America.

Just brilliant and simple story-telling, beautiful visuals as usual with Pixar, awesome voice work, funny and smart dialogue, beautiful score once again by Michael Giacchino & very, very enjoyable characters. Speaking of characters, the highlight of the film: Dug the Dog. A sort of "robot" dog that will have you have you in a lot of stitches each scene that dog is in and that was the case with me. Simply, one of the funniest characters Pixar ever made. Pete Doctor, one of the four Pixar directors (John Lassester, Andrew Stanton, Brad Bird) who directed Monster's Inc (2001) needs and should get nominated for his clever, genius and smart directing of this but if Stanton didn't get the nods for (Finding Nemo and WALL-E) and Bird for (The Incredibles & Ratatouille) which they should of been, then the Oscars are making another HUGE mistake for not nominating this guy for this movie.

Up is the funniest Pixar movie, funnier than the Toy Story movies, A Bug's Life & Finding Nemo which were the funniest, in my opinion. The movie is not just hilarious, it's emotional and sad at times. Like WALL-E, it focuses on the character feelings but not as magical as WALL-E. Still, Up is full of emotional, fun and hilarious proportions. Your in for a BIG ride in this!! 10/10.

Monsters Vs. Aliens is one of Dreamworks Animation best work, it's very fun and entertaining.
27 March 2009
I just saw MvA and it was fun, entertaining & sometimes very funny. It was better than Kung Fu Panda & Madagascar 2, it was one of Dreamworks Animation best. Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett & Rainn Wilson as the main villain Gallaxhar were great and fun to watch. But Seth Rogen as B.O.B & Stephen Colbert as the President stole the show with memorable characters, they were funny as hell!! I liked the good visuals, the nice 50's look at alien invasions and mainly the action-packed sequences (surprised how great the action was in this). It wasn't as funny as I expected it to be but I still laughed hard out loud a couple times as well a few more laughs at other scenes as well. The action sequences though, is surprisingly well-made and loved it. Monsters Vs. Aliens is like The Incredibles of Dreamworks Animation, The Incredibles is the best & most action-packed feature from Pixar and this Monsters Vs. Aliens from Dreamworks Animation (more action than Kung Fu Panda, in my opinion). Monsters Vs. Aliens is a very fun, entertaining, very funny & action-packed and one of Dreamworks Animation best features yet!!

Watchmen (2009)
9/10
Watchmen is a visually, eye-catching great movie.
7 March 2009
Warning: Spoilers
Let me start off with the visual effects. The visual effects are amazing to say the least, the visuals for Dr. Manahattan were exhilarating and very well-made! One of the best visual effects ever put on film and for fans who loves Dr. Manahattan, will not be disappointed. Which brings to performances, Malin Akerman was absolutely bad ass as Silk Spectre and was awesome in this, in the next few years people are going to remember her for this role, look for more of her in the future of movies. Patrick Wilson as Dan Dreiberg/Night Owl II gave a very good performance, good actor. But the highlights of the film are: Billy Crudup and Jackie Earle Haley. Billy Crudup was absolutely perfect and wasn't just playing Dr. Manahattan, he was him. Jackie Earle Haley had my favorite performance in the movie, let's just say he OWNED as Rorschach and was just as good as Heath Ledger's amazing performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight only difference, he wasn't a villain. Both Crudup and Haley gave Oscar-worthy performances, they both should get the nod. And last but not least, Jeffery Dean Morgan did a great job as The Comedian but I expected it more from him.

Who do watches the Watchmen? I do and i'm telling you to watch this spectacular film, you won't be disappointed. Watchmen is indeed a very long movie but that doesn't matter because the visual effects, performances and action-packed cool sequences won't bore you at all. The movie is complex & doesn't have any villains, there's just good guys/bad guys all around and that's the brief spoiler I will give you. P.S., another spoiler: those who are expecting crazy & unnecessary slow-mo's are wrong, the slow-mo's were awesome and wasn't used that much, Snyder put those slow-mo's at the right and perfect scenes.

Changeling (2008)
10/10
One of the best movies of 08'!!
18 February 2009
Angelina Jolie gives her best performance of her career. While Jolie shows her beauty and classy looks her, she was absolutely picture perfect for the role of the brave, strong & emotional Christina Collins. I praise Clint Eastwood for making this movie and casting great talented actors for supporting: John Malkovich, Michael Kelly, Jeffery Donovan and Jason Butler Harner gives one of the best supporting role performances in a movie. Changeling is beautiful, heartfelt, haunting and amazing brilliant film that captured my heart and made me feel so bad of what happened to Christina Collins. Not only the movie is so amazing, it sends a strong message about how brave single mothers are and would give their life away if their child was found missing or taken. Angelina Jolie did that without overacting, she did everything an actress could do to give the Oscars a hard time and give them some second thoughts of who they would choose. I've seen this three times and I'm very sure that Angelina Jolie deserves the Oscar more than Streep, Winslet, Leo & Hathaway. She was the better of the five, in my opinion.

The Uninvited (2009)
9/10
A very-well made PG-13 horror remake with a very effective shocking twist!!
8 February 2009
Warning: Spoilers
Just saw this and been waiting to see this, it exceeded my expectations and turned out to be one of the best PG-13 thriller movies in years!! I don't see this as another PG-13 horror remake but a PG-13 supernatural thriller remake and it does have enough jump scares here & there but it's not a horror movie, period!! I love Elizabeth Banks so, there's no need to explain about her performance except for just keep doing great Elizabeth!! Emily Browning and Arielle Kebbel did very good in their roles, I liked their characters. The Univited has so many twists and turns almost throughout the movie but doesn't mean you will get depressed by it because they are quite effective twists, the ending twist though, was SURPRISING!! I loved this movie, it was everything i had hoped for: solid acting, scary moments and an overall just great movie, plain and simple.

Defiance (I) (2008)
10/10
One of the most amazing true war stories i've seen in a long time!
8 January 2009
First off, let's start off with the performances by Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber & Jamie Bell. They gave extraordinary performance especially Craig & Schreiber, Oscar-worthy performances by both & for Bell, not an Oscar-worthy performance but an excellent performance for a bright young star. All of them did the accents very well and gave as good as they got!! Defiance, one of the most amazing movies i've seen is a Oscar-eligible film for me because of how powerful the scenes were, the epic score by James Newton Howard & the acting. It's a great movie treat for the start of 2009. The movie is so moving and powerful that you can't even imagine after the movie is finish, you'll want go back and buy tickets again for this movie because you won't get enough of it!!

Yes Man (2008)
10/10
Yes Man is Jim Carrey's best film to date and he is back!!
13 December 2008
I saw a free screening of this hilarious movie in my hometown and it was MAGNIFICENT!!! It starts off fast and never slows down (never a dull moment in the movie) and for fans of Jim Carrey (like me) who wants him to be himself, prepare to laugh so extremely hard that will have your sides in excruciating pain from all the laughter you made!! Jim Carrey was at his very best & he made me laugh non-stop till' the end of the movie but it was not a one-man show, the supporting cast threw in some fantastic delivery lines, humor & craziness. Zooey Deschanel was surprisingly very funny (didn't know she could be THIS funny), Bradley Cooper was funny, Terence Stamp did great as well but out of all of the supporting cast, there are two of them that had some of the funniest scenes in movie history: Rhys Darby plays the memorable and hilarious boss of Carl Allen (Carrey), he had some classic and unbelievable delivery lines in the movie that were just funny. And the other person: Fionnula Flanaghan who plays the nasty, sexually & very funny neighbor of Carl Allen and delivers us one of the most disgusting & very funny scenes in years (not giving you spoilers)!! Yes Man is not only a very, very funny but it sends a good message about how do you want to handle your life.

Not the funniest movie of the year but an extremely funny & film to watch!!
28 November 2008
Vince Vaughn funniest film yet and he brought the house down in this one!!! Witherspoon was good, too & probably her funniest film since the first Legally Blonde. As mentioned, there's five Oscar winners in this film: Witherspoon, Duvall, Voight, Spacek & Steenburgen. The only ones that did their part well Duvall (was very funny!!), Spacek (did her part very well), Steenburgen (did OK) & of course, Witherspoon. For the rest of the supporting cast, Kristin Chenoweth (always been a big fan of her) and Jon Favreau were absolutely hilarious!! Four Christmases is NOT your typical Christmas movie, it had lots of crude dialogue & definitely not for kids who are under 13. Sure, this movie had a crazy script, too much gags and a few plot holes but it worked for me and anything with Vince Vaughn, Reese Witherspoon & Kristin Chenoweth, I'm all right it!! Four Christmases is a extremely hilarious and fun holiday flick to watch, it's a must-see!!! 9/10!!

Outrageous, Extremely Crude and Hilarious!!!
31 October 2008
Zack and Miri is the most crude, disgusting, funniest & raunchy Kevin Smith movie ever!!! It will have you laughing throughout, probably shocked & maybe offended but that's Kevin's game!! Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks reunites after their breakout roles in the hilarious The 40 Year Old Virgin and they made a perfect comedic duo. Clerks actors Jason Anderson (especially him) and Jason Mewes did their roles pretty well but Anderson's had some of the funniest lines in the movie. Seth Rogen's buddies: Craig Robinson and Gerry Bednob (very small role) were absolutely hilarious in their roles. And for cameos, there's only one but he's gut-busting hilarious in this one: Justin Long, he had me laughing so hard, I had to fall out of my seat!!! However, the movie is about making a PORNO and for some religious people who takes it so seriously, I do not recommend it at all!! But for people who are huge fans of Kevin Smith movies or any of the actors, will enjoy the helluva out of it!!

The Secret Life Of Bees is a powerful, amazing & excellent film followed by strong performances.
27 October 2008
Let me just say that the movie NEVER had dull moment or even a second in the ENTIRE film!!! Set in South Carolina 1964, Lily Owens (Dakota Fanning) who is haunted by the memory of her late mother, tries to escape her lonely life and bad relationship with her father (Paul Bettany), to get past her horrible incident with her late mother. So, she and her caregiver Rosaleen (Jennifer Hudson) flees to a South Carolina town where it holds the secret of her mother's past. Lily and Rosaleen finds the intelligent Boatwright sisters: August (Queen Latifah), June (Alicia Keys and May (Sophie Okenendo) where they take Lily and Rosaleen in, to have a place to stay for a while.

The Secret Life Of Bees is a movie of what you call a "tearjerker" and that's what it is, the movie will touch your heart and teaches you about life, care, love & forget about your horrible past and move on. As for performances, everyone delivers and a couple of Oscar-worthy ones too. Dakota Fanning and Sophie Okenendo are the ones that delivers the Oscar-worthy performances. Come Oscars season, don't be surprised if any of those both actresses will be in the envelope (they deserved to get those nods!!) Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson (R.I.P her brother and mother who just passed away one day ago.) delivered their best performances yet even Jennifer (I thought this was her best performance yet and better than ever Oscar-winning performance in Dreamgirls.). As for the supporting actors: Bettany, Parker and Wilds, they did great as well.

The Secret Life Of Bees is one of this year's best films, rush out and buy a ticket for this wonderful and amazing film!!

Sex Drive (2008)
9/10
Easily, One of the funniest movies of 08'!!
18 October 2008
I loved every minute of this movie!! If you are looking for a non-stop constantly-falling-out-of-your-seat film, then Sex Drive is perfect for you. It is an instant teen comedy classic, in my books. James Mardsen and Seth Green steals the show but up and coming actors: Josh Zuckerman and Clark Duke did extremely well for themselves and prove themselves to be the next big thing in the future. It is just about as funny than Superbad and American Pie (1,2,3) and the plot of the movie was just so simple and well-made. Hopefully, Sex Drive will be a teen classic in the next few years because it's extremely funny, raunchy & has a little bit of it's sweet side, too. Sex Drive is awesome and super hilarious!!!

Quarantine (2008)
9/10
Best Horror Film Of 2008!!!
14 October 2008
If your looking for some huge scares, nerve-crackling & non-stop suspense, then Quarantine is the right film for you. For people who haven't seen it and worried about motion sickness, then don't worry this film is not so shaky at all!! So far this year, there haven't been so many scary movies despite good horror films like (The Strangers) but Quarantine just comes out on top. Jennifer Carpenter (White Chicks, Dexter & The Exorcism Of Emily Rose) gives a decent enough performance in this extremely tense & scary movie. Jay Hernandez, Columbus Short and Steve Harris did good, too. Quarantine has just have about everything:some humor, a enough jump-out-of-your-seat scares, suspense, zombies,action and good performances. Quarantine is a perfect scary ovie to start the Fall of 2008 and probably takes the best horror movie of 2008 award.

Body of Lies (2008)
8/10
A solid political thriller with solid performances.
13 October 2008
Great movie, I thought it was interesting and entertaining with a couple of solid performances. Leo Dicaprio gives a solid performance probably Oscar-worthy (maybe, just maybe in my opinion) and Russell Crowe gives a good (not his best) performance as well. Body Of Lies is full of exciting stuff through beginning to end despite not having as much action than last year's political thriller with The Kingdom, it definitely deserves some amazing action sequences, of course great performances & gives us something to think about. Ridley Scott who is one of the best filmmakers out there, gives us a watchable, exciting, interesting & cool flick that definitely deserves from it's genre. Body Of Lies is a solid B+ action political thriller in my books!!

Two very talented & comedic teen stars are on the rise!!!
3 October 2008
Warning: Spoilers
And their names are: Michael Cera and Kat Dennings!!! Cera and Dennings really made a good team in this movie and they nailed it. The movie was just I expected: funny, romantic, gross & sweet. The breakout role belonged to Ari Graynor (Caroline), she stole every scene she was in!! She came out of nowhere and brought her A game, getting so drunk, being gross and last but not least: The chewing gum scenes!! It was absolutely disgusting & so gross that will keep you thinking how in the world could an actor pulled those stuff off easily?!! Really a good romantic teen comedy and if your fans of Cera or Dennings or enjoyed Superbad & Juno, then you won't be disappointed!!!

Sam Jackson's best performance to date!!
19 September 2008
Warning: Spoilers
First of all, I want to say that Samuel L. Jackson's performance was absolutely "creepy" and he nailed perfectly!!! Back to the movie and it definitely surpassed my expectations (had high expectations for this movie). The movie had some twist & turns, some good laughs and was pretty intense. The movie starts off slow and then in the middle, it started to get interesting because Jackson's character starts to act like a lunatic and that's what so creepy about his character, he's very creepy and crazy. He wants the interracial couple movers play by (Wilson & Washington) to move out of his neighborhood and they don't want to because they want it to start a nice life and try to give it a few days so that they could work out their plans and have kids but Abel Turner (Jackson) had other ideas. He has two kids and want to raise them to be good kids and get respect the way he did in his childhood. Suddenly, they both were looking at the couple making out in the swimming pool and once Jackson's character sees that, he starts to get crazy and wild!! All hell breaks loose from there!! It was a pretty good movie, the performances were good, the plot was interesting and is very entertaining!! It's well worth your 2 hours, go and see it!!!

Tropic Thunder hands down, the funniest movie of the year and one of the most unforgettable, funniest films in years!!!
12 August 2008
Lights, Camera & Action!!! Just what i expected: non-stop laughs, action, Ben Stiller being Ben Stiller, Robert Downey, Jr. stealing the show, Tom Cruise's funniest role of his entire career, up and coming actor Brandon T. Jackson showing us everything from his arsenal and Jack Black finally being him old self at being very crazy and absolutely hilarious!! Tropic Thunder is an instant comedy classic and will have you laughing out of your seats a bunch of times, it is better and funnier than Pineapple Express & Step Brothers in my opinion and just blew them out of the water!!! Being a Ben Stiller fan, i think this is his best film since There's Something About Mary. What Robert Downey, Jr. did for Iron Man, he did for this movie and quickly becoming one of my favorite actors and definitely gets an Oscar nod from me for either the roles of Tropic Thunder or Iron Man. Jack Black did a great job at finally doing his special talent: making people laugh and haven't been doing that since Nacho Libre (I thought that was his funniest movie since, that movie was very funny, in my opinion.) For those who wants to know what Tom Cruise did, i'll give you two big words: FREAKING HILARIOUS!! He was absolutely crazy and had me falling out of my seat every time until his role came to a close!!! And for Brandon T. Jackson (mostly everybody don't know who he is but i think this show should refresh your minds: Nick Cannon's Show: Wild N'Out.) He also was in 2005's Roll Bounce with Bow Wow. He was amazingly hilarious with the back and forth action between him and Downey, Jr. Well, the movie was hilarious throughout and had my sides burning just what expected from the movie and it's a comedy classic!! Cut!!! My work here is done.

Step Brothers (2008)
10/10
Will Ferrell and John C. Reily are made for each other!!!
25 July 2008
Just saw the movie and it's one of the best comedy movies of the year, hands down (can't be sure though, i still have to check out Tropic Thunder and Pineapple Express)!! I've never laughed that hard at a movie, i'm still sweating as i'm writing this from all the laughter i made! Easily, it's Ferrell and Reily's best film to date and Kathryn Hahn was amazingly funny and she nearly stole the film away from Ferrell & Reily! The only thing i know, they are cast her in a lot of movie in the future, she's is absolutely hilarious!! The movie indeed has a lot of swearing & sex (not really bad) but that never stopped the movie from being so good, so you don't have worry about that but don't take your kids that are under 14 years old because in my theater, a mom brought her kid (about 7 or 8) and when the movie was over, she started swearing and repeating the words over and over, the mother was very angry and should of been ashamed of herself for that. Will Ferrell and John C. Reily have excellent chemistry and this isn't the last time they will make together for sure, we will see them again, that i'm sure of. They are the best comedic duo since Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon. So, if you are a Will Ferrell & John C. Reily fan, you'll definitely enjoy this one and laugh yourself silly or if your not a big fan of them both, again you will laugh from beginning to end. Awesome, crazy & supremely funny movie!!!!
