Review: The Hunger Games – Catching Fire

TheHungerGamesCatchingFire1

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.

TheHungerGamesCatchingFire2

Jumping right into the story it picks up right where it left off with Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark as champions and the districts building hope because of what they did at the end. There was so much to the story to tell, over 2 hours and 30 minutes with a lot of twists and turns that brings Katniss & Peeta back into the fight with other champions as their foes, but with more on the line then they even know. It was a slow development in the beginning but it was building up, the characters all back in play with a few new interesting fighters. The fight in the dome felt a bit accelerated this time around, the bad guys in the dome didn’t feel that bad and died too quickly. I wanted so much more from it but the cliffhanger at the end of the movie honestly left me unsatisfied, I know sometimes there are movies that need sequels but this one felt like it was missing a piece. I’m not going to ruin it for anyone but you have to satisfy the person watching the movie even if you have a cliffhanger at the end.

Beyond Outrage – Trailer

As the police launch a full-scale crackdown on organized crime, it ignites a national yakuza struggle between the Sanno of the East and Hanabishi of the West. What started as an internal strife in Outrage has now become a nationwide war in Outrage Beyond.

I love Japanese Gangster Movies and this one looks to be like one hell of a movie. These are the types of movies that I love to see from Japan, the amount of Violence is just over the top and brutal and very real, they know how to make a gangster movies.

Review: Captain Phillips

CaptainPhillips1

The true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.

CaptainPhillips2

An amazing true story and played by even more amazing actor, Tom Hanks plays Captain Phillips perfectly and the ones they should also give credit to are the Somali & Sudanese actors who pulled off the roles of the pirates perfectly. The story develops slowly, no real action happening until the pursuit begins, two stories emerge as one and Captain Phillips has to make decisions. You here about pirates these days off the Somali coast but people still think of Pirates of the Caribbean when thinking about pirates. It is an intense story and very well made, if you haven’t seen it you should.

Review: Rush

Rush1

A re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula One rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Rush2

A formula story told perfectly, with Chris Hemsworth & Daniel Bruhl playing the rivals perfectly. An automotive story told on the big screen that gets you on the edge of your seat. You have to respect the rivalry it made them champions and each one for their own reason. This movie is intense and the intensity carries across to you and you really get pulled into it. An amazing movie directed by Ron Howard detailing the legendary 1970s Formula 1 rivalry over to the big screen, I loved it.

Review: Kevin Hart – Let Me Explain

LetMeExplain1

Filmed at a sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden, comedian Kevin Hart delivers material from his 2012 “Let Me Explain” concert tour.

LetMeExplain2

I’m a huge fan of Kevin Hart, the guy has a fantastic sense of humor and knows how to be funny on all levels, if he is doing stand up or acting in a tv show or movie, he is great. This show cases one of his best stand up shows I have seen, he is hilarious and bit after bit you keep laughing. You also get to see what happened with these guys on the tour bus across Europe and different places around the world. If you want to laugh then you have to watch Kevin Hart.

Review: We’re The Millers

WERETHEMILLERS1

A veteran pot dealer creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

WERETHEMILLERS2

We’re the Millers is one of those comedies that surpasses your expectations, in my opinion the comedy of the summer. And proves again that Jennifer Aniston is still hot, at this age and she looks ridiculously hot. Jason Sudeikis is hilarious in a lot of comedies but this one he is over the top, a fack family to bring drugs across the border is a pretty unique storyline which has a lot of laughs in store. I can’t recommend it enough if you haven’t seen it, your going to love it.

Review: The Internship

TI1

Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.

TI2

The tech savy age of Google, we use it as a verb at this stage of our lives, it is an integral part of it and seeing the insides of Google is always fun, and from the perspective of Owen Wilson & Vince Vaughn I knew it would be hilarious. Vince Vaughn is still my favorite from Old School, that movie is comedy gold, and I was hoping for the same from this one but it wasn’t exactly the same. I find Owen Wilson slightly annoying trying to play the sensitive guy all the time. It was a fun movie and you get in a good amount of laughs with their antics but not comedy legend, something you would watch again, a good comedy if your looking for a laugh but not over the top hilarity that I was hoping for.
