Review: Terminator Salvation

I have been waiting months to see this movie and it turned out a little different then I expected. Christian Bale played the role of the tormented fighter who is at the edge of humanity, and he has hope that humanity will prevail against the machines, he was perfect for John Connor. This movies’ action scenes were pretty cool, even though it felt like they were trying to tell more of story then the whole action packed theme of the Terminator franchise. Terminator 2 was the most memorable for me, Terminator 3 was a major disappointment but Terminator Salvation did an excellent job with a combination of the story and action.

So many robots, and ties back to the past with a few tapes of Sarah Connor telling John all that she knows so he may make his way. The ending though still leaves it open for another sequel, this isn’t a blockbuster like Batman Begins and Iron Man but a movie really worth watching.

Review: The Dark Knight

There isn’t much more that can be said about this movie that has not been said. It did live up to the hype and more, a great story line, great actors, and the perfect combination of effects to bring out the darkness of gotham. I loved that they really used the tumbler in this movie to the fullest, and that motorcycle was insane. This time around I didn’t know what to expect from this movie, the best part is that it wasn’t just a Batman movie, it was a movie about the corruptable human soul. Christian Bale as usual did an amazing job as Batman, Heath Ledger portrayed the Joker as true insane mastermind, he bourght him across as not just evil but a really lunatic striving for chaos. I think the one who stole the show was Two Face, a character I wasn’t expecting even though I knew Harvey Dent was in this movie and he is Two Face. The only annoyance was that girl, they could have picked any other girl to play that role and she would have been better. The way it came about was unexpected and very surprising. I saw the movie twice in a normal theater, and once in IMAX and it is worth it seeing it IMAX. I don’t even know how they will be able to make a better Batman movie then this one.
