What a bore! Pitt is solid, but most critically it's very weak on story. Authenticity suffers since the makers were probably brought up on Star Wars they include lasers in a WWII film. There were tracers sure, but nothing like this. Artistic license to be pretty pictures? Fine, but the geek factor basically threw realism out the window. The supporting cast is too mannered in their performances. Michael Peña is not such a great actor who certainly is making bank playing the token Mexican in every other movie out there. Note to Hollywood: it begins to take an audience out of a story with this kind of over-saturation.… Full Review »
It's hard to find flaws on a movie that's so well throughout without taking itself too serious. I'm not surprised that this movie was so good, for I love James Gunn previous work. What is a pleasant surprise is how this is now the best Marvel movie I've ever watched (the original Iron Man has is finally dethroned)
All I can say is: go see it. Be prepared to fall in love with the best character assemble since the original Star Wars. The best compliment I can give Guardians of the Galaxy, is that it feels like the love child of Star Wars with Back to the Future. A sci-fi odyssey filled with character and humor. This movie is NOT to be missed.… Full Review »
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes falters just inches from perfection, mainly because it's somewhat predictable and convenient at times.
Yet, to make things simple. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is not only a fantastic movie filled with great action and emotion. It's also responsible for giving us a powerful sci-fi character to go side by side with the greatest in history like Darth Vader and Spock. That character is Caesar, who was already great in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, however in this movie we see his new phase in the evolution. We get to see what is in my opinion the most compelling character in a sci-fi int he past decade develop himself as a leader.
On top of that, we also get Koba, another fantastic ape that you're bound to keep in your mind for years to come.
Finally, I was super happy and surprise with how solid the human side of the story is. The movie never forgets that is about the apes, but it still manages to give us an interesting and well developed human story on the side.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is FANTASTIC.… Full Review »
I never cared for the first three X-Men movies, in fact I think X-Men 2 is one of the most overrated movies ever. I did enjoy First Class, and it's follow up Days of Future past I found myself delighted with the plot and characters. This movie is proof that you don't need large and constant action sequences to make a powerful super hero film. The writing in this movie in fantastic, and the acting it's truly great. No surprise based on the all-star cast.
Now, I do have some complains here. The first one is some of the time travelling logic. Although not bad by any means, is not absolutely bullet proof to logic.
Then, I was disappointing with how little we saw from the "future" X-Men. Their scenes were some of the best in the movie, and thanks to the ending I'm afraid we will never explore the world/characters that pop-out the most in the movie.
Beyond those two flaws, Days of Future past is not only a great movie but is one that I hope challenges other super hero movies to step up their storytelling to the next level.
Oh, and the Quicksilver scene alone is worth watching this movie for. More quicksilver please!… Full Review »
I went to see this with little expectations, and somehow I was still not only disappointing by pissed off.
Let's start with the good, three of the four ninja turtle's personalities are nailed. Michael Angelo is a bit annoying in this.
The bad, well Megan Fox is an awful actress and although enjoy Will Arnett, he can't save this movie. You still have at the end a movie that takes it's source material, tries to do something new with it (which I am not against it), but makes it so bad and painful to watch that I'm legitimately pissed off with this movie.
Also, I don't mind how the turtles look...but I don't remember them being eight feet tall. In fact, in the cartoon they used to be smaller than April O'Neil.… Full Review »
