R.E.D. 2 – Trailer

They are back at it again, the edlerly assasins with a new story, and I love John Malkovich, he always chooses to play a wacky character. And this time they are out killing each other with assassins from every level attacking them.

Retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device. To succeed, they¹ll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world‹and stay alive in the process.

Review: A Good Day To Die Hard

DieHard61

John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, only to discover that Jack is a CIA operative working to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces.

DieHard62

I didn’t even bother watching the trailer of this movie, its a Die Hard movie with Bruce Willis, I know that I’m going to enjoy the movie and in this case I loved it. It’s everything you want in a Die Hard movie, hard core bad guys, explosions from the get go, and McClane shooting left right and center. Honestly I was just expecting some explosions and fun, but this turned out to be even better, it had a serious tone with the light humor of Bruce Willis thrown into the mix, plus the story line was solid this time around. Die Hard 5 was all action and fun, but the story line was over the top, this one had the right mix and I walked out more then satisfied and the action scenes were fantastic.

Review: The Expendables 2

Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.

It’s rare that the second movie is better then the first one, but this one is, and if you are a fan of the 80s movies then you really have to watch this one. And this time they brought in Chuck Norris & Jean Claude Van Damme, a true 80s action packed movie, with a damn good bad guy, true 80s style but modernized for our time. The fine art of 80s/90s action movies has been lost and we are stuck with very complex stories requiring our complete attention to know what the hell is going in a movie. You get the right dosage of a story with more action and Chuck Norris thrown in for good measure, how could this not be good. You know there are movie one liners that you will always remember like “Yippy Ka Yay Mother Fucker!!”. Well this one is filled with them and you will love every moment of it. When Chuck Norris joins the battle, Arnie sighs and moans, ‘Who’s next… Rambo?’, that is the best of the movie. At one point in the film, Arnie turns to Bruce and Sly and says, ‘we belong in a museum’. In a way, he’s right. This is the last gasp of this type of film and perhaps the perfect homage to a golden age.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation Trailer

I enjoyed the First G.I.Joe movie but this one looks even Better! Snake Eyes is still a bad ass, and I want that motorcycle with a machine gun installed on it. Then there is Dwayne Johnson or “The Rock” who plays Road Block in this part of G.I.Joe basically the big guy with the big guns, I do love these movies!

Old School Trailers

Armegaddon was one of my favorite movies, it still is, and I still love watching when its on TV or I watch it every once in a while. I always knew that I loved movies but this movie was just something else for me. I remember back in the day we really didn’t see trailers much, we didn’t really watch online trailers back in 1998 or 1997, we were all on emails, chat programs and playing quick online games. Now when I look at this old trailer I think the trailer itself is crap, quality of the video itself aside, I think the way that they put it together wasn’t good at all, and the guy’s voice just feels disconencted from the movie itself. Its funny I think the guy who was talking is the same guy that does all the movies. I loved Bruce Willis in this movie and Steve Buscemi (the guy who went nuts while in space) was hilarious in this movie, it had a fantastic storyline. I didn’t even know who Michael Bay was at the time, but I knew Jerry Bruckheimer was the producer.

Review: RED – Retired & Extremely Dangerous

When his idyllic life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive. They must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive.

I wasn’t expecting the movie to be this good, it turned out to be even better then expected. Packing a long list of A-List actors; Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker (From the show Weeds), John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Karl Urban, and Brian Cox (Bad Guy from XMen2). This movie was a great combination of action and comedy, Bruce Willis played the cool spy while Malkovich played the insane guy who wants to shoot and blow things up, I really loved Malkovich’s character in this movie, he was the perfect comic relief. All the actors complemented each other and Mary-Louise Parker played the Willis’s clueless love intrest perfectly, they all fit their characters and came together perfectly. If you are looking for a good action film with a touch of comedy then this is on your list.

Cop Out – Trailer

What more can you ask for in a cop comedy, it’s a Kevin Smith movie with some very funny characters. I have loved Tracy Morgan since 30 Rock, and this is just more of Tracy Morgan with typical kick ass Bruce Willis and they threw in Sean William Scott to make it even funnier. I don’t even know what the plot of the movie is, but I know its going to be funny and I’m going to watch it.

1997 Best Year of Sci-Fi

I didn’t realize how much Science Fiction movies were out during 1997, or at least how many movies I love that were released during that time. I remember watching Fifth Element in the theaters, and also watching Men In Black in Copley Mall in Boston. If you take all of the good science fiction movies of this time then a lot of them were released in 1997, surprisingly there was a good line up there too with Starship Troopers, which made me hate bugs, and Event Horizon which genuinely scared me. But MIB is one of my top movies, I still listen to the theme song on daily basis, Will Smith was fanatstic in the movie, I don’t think I could have enjoyed it anymore.

Review: Surrogates

People replaced with robots that can transmit all the experience they have with the five senses back to the human controlling host and can experience extreme action without any damage to the human host. That is the description of a surrogate and people have gotten used to using these types of robots while remaining at home. Any movie that has Bruce Willis in it attracts my attention right away, and this being a Sci Fi movie was a must see for me. But as the film progressed I was a bit disappointed, it was trying to be too many things at once, sceince fiction, drama, personal story, action, thriller, it seems they couldn’t decide on how the story should progress and who should they concentrate on to the point they pulled the movie apart and it wasn’t really much of anything. I was a bit disappointed at the end, I remembered how great iRobot with Will Smith was and how it had great action and got the story across with without tearing itself apart like this movie. Bruce tried hard but it was too much of too many things, making this for a mediocre movie.
