Review: Transporter 3

Frank Martin puts the driving gloves on to deliver Valentina, the kidnapped daughter of a Ukranian government official, from Marseilles to Odessa on the Black Sea. En route, he has to contend with thugs who want to intercept Valentina’s safe delivery and not let his personal feelings get in the way of his dangerous objective.

There is a reason why I like Jason Statham films, he usually plays interesting roles or he is a no nonsense person who gets his answers one way or another. Some people aren’t that fond of the Transporter movies, but I like because its simple and entertaining to watch. He has a mission and on the way he beats up a hell of a lot of people. I don’t know how he works out or what he does but he is built like he is made out of stone. The story line is simple and realistic to follow, nothing to insane except for a few car stunts.

Martini girl messes up F1 racers in Monaco

I’m not the biggest fan of F1 racing, but I do respect the drivers and especially the teams. But this probably the funniest thing that I have ever heard the F1 drivers say.

Drivers complained during qualifying that a billboard advertisement located just after Lowes hairpin and before the tunnel was distracting them. The advert was for Martini, the “Italian winemaker founded in 1863 and famous for its iconic vermouth” (according to Luxist), and featured the enchanting gaze of model Jessiqa Pace.

With all the women these men probably see I didn’t think an advert of an attractive woman would have an affect such as this. I think they needed an excuse for the slow lap times.

Knight Rider Cancelled, At Last!

At last the torture will end, NBC has decided to cancel the damn show. What did they think when the story line was horrible and a car which can defy the laws of physics and morph into other retarded car. I know that a lot of media companies were bringing back old shows and were doing a decent job, but this show was an embarrassment. They ruined the memory of Knight Rider, I even have all the songs of the intro and the days when Hasslehoff was cool.

Review: Traitor

tratorposter

I always watch Don Cheadale movies because I know that he chooses these interesting characters. I know that I have gotten tired of the Muslim always being the bad guy in the movie, except when there is a great storyline, this movie had that and more. Samir Horn (Cheadle) was caught for terrorist activities in Yemen, joining up with the terrorists to get out of prison. All the while in the US communication activities indicate that there is an imminent attack on the US or US government facility, the government task force trying to piece things together. Roy Clayton from the FBI pays special attention to Samir, and is interested in him which leads them to their goal. This movie takes a completely different track then expected, even when you can figure it out its still exciting.

Review: Bolt

 

A dog who think he is a superhero wanders into the real world in the search of a friend. Bolt simply enough believes he has real powers and the people on tv are real enemies, until he runs into a few more animals. The movie just gets funnier and the best part is when Rhino the hamster gets introduced. As the story progress there is more action and the story unfolds, I find the pigeons to be hilarious, reminds me of one of our friends. This an enjoyable movie that you wouldn’t mind watching and get a few laughs out of it!

Review: Outlander

After following this monster across the galaxy Kanon crashes into Earth, into the Era of the Vikings. He must kill the monster that wiped out his people and nothing is stopping in his way. These Vikings have their way and they have never seen anything like this, and they are have tried fighting it every way they know how, yet it somehow still survives and thrives. An action packed story which doesn’t stop, and throughout the movie you are entertained. It is a bit long but I really enjoyed all the action, if you are looking for a good action packed adventure movie then this is it.

Review: What Just Happened?

DeNiro plays the Hollywood producer at the end of his line and he has to get this right or his career is done. In Hollywood those who reach the top can fall so quick, and DeNiro is trying to get back on the saddle in this movie. DeNiro plays a very calm character who handles his problems but luck doesn’t seem to be on his side, with so many wives I don’t know how he isn’t insane. It is an interesting movie with an outlook to the other side of the Glamorous life in Hollywood, but the movie is just a little too slow and disconnected for my tastes. It could have been a little better with a little more emotion and less number of characters in the movie.

Review: The Day The Earth Stood Still

Keanu Reeves is Klaatu, an alien sent to earth to judge the humans and the state of things on earth. If humans are fit to live or the earth has to be reborn again. I’m not the biggest fan of Keanu Reeves but he played this alien character pretty damn well, and Jennifer Connelly is the human scientist who connects with him and trying to help him understand that humans aren’t all that bad. I have to say that I like that big alien robot and it takes an interesting twist, its a fun movie to watch, nothing too special but if you liek Sci-Fi then this is for you.

Review: IP Man

Ip Man is adapted from the life story of Ip Man, the grandmaster of the Wing Chun style of martial arts. This film is the first important record of the master’s life.

I watched a preview about this movie and it got me really interested. A true martial arts story with history at the heart of it. I will not go into the story of movie since it should be seen by every person who likes Asian movies or martial arts.

The best part is how the action is choreographed, I get annoyed with the recent movies how they make you dizzy with the confusing camera angles. The fight scenes were genuine, shots showing all the details, no camera tricks.

Also this movie didn’t focus totally about martial arts, it tells a story about a man who fought for what he believed in, even when it meant not fighting. They show some part of the history of China when invaded by Japan, and what he did to make a stand when he had to.

The later years IP Man spread the art of Wing Chun openly. And one of his most famous disciples is Bruce Lee.

Review: Pride and Glory

A saga centered on a multi-generational family of New York City Police officers. The family’s moral codes are tested when Ray Tierney, investigates a case that reveals an incendiary police corruption scandal involving his own brother-in-law. For Ray, the truth is revelatory, a Pandora’s Box that threatens to upend not only the Tierney legacy but the entire NYPD.

I’m a huge fan of Edward Norton, and I also like Colin Farrel movies. Norton knows how to bring out the character and always choose these complex stories with difficult characters to portray. This time its no different, he is a burnt out cop from a family of cops and he has to dig into a murder investigation where four cops were killed. What he might find at the end of the investigation might rip his family apart. The storyline is simple yet it keeps you hooked, you keep wondering what he is going to find out and when. If you like cop movies then this is the choice.
