Review: R.I.P.D

RIPD1

A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.

RIPD2

I was looking forward to this movie, sort of Ryan Reynold’s Men in Black Movie, with him being Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones is played by Jeff Bridges. I love Science Fiction movies, but this Supernatural movie just didn’t play out the right way, it annoyed me and honestly disappointed me. Here I was thinking this was going to be a hell of a movie but at the end it fell short of my expectations. Even with Kevin Bacon playing the bad guy, it just didn’t add up in the right way, the characters felt fake and the special effects were crap.

RIPD3

Review: Tron Legacy

The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father’s creation turned bad and a unique ally who was born inside the digital domain of The Grid.

Sam Flynn is the young man with a huge company to inherit which he wants nothing to do with, except to badger them and embarrass them whenever possible. Only to find a contact from his father’s old office, but his father has been missing for over a decade. The story picks up some time after Jeff Bridges disappears into The Grid and being stuck there for a very long time, and his son stumbles into his digital world. This is one hell of a science fiction movie that I loved from beginning to end, I kept wanting more and the story was great, and the graphics of their world and how everything was related together through the lighting patterns. Jeff Bridges does an amazing job in this movie, and brought back memories when I remember see it on VHS in the 80s for the first time. If you are scifi fan then this movie is a must.

The Men Who Stare At Goats – Trailer

A reporter, trying to lose himself in the romance of war after his marriage fails, gets more than he bargains for when he meets a special forces agent who reveals the existence of a secret, psychic military unit whose goal is to end war as we know it. The founder of the unit has gone missing and the trail leads to another psychic soldier who has distorted the mission to serve his own ends.

Now this is a movie I have to see, George Clooney thinking he has psychic powers in the military and Ewan McGregor as a report believes him completely. Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey play the perfect roles in this movie as well, I love a good movie with this type of ridiculousness, sarcacism, and humor put together by these class of actors. Can’t wait to see it when it comes out in November 6th, I’m surprised I didn’t hear about it before now.
