I’m looking for pure entertainment out of this list and the movies topping it are Achorman 2, Delivery Man, Homefront, I Frankenstein, and 47 Ronin. I know that the Wolf of Wall Street is an amazing movie but I’m looking for something that doesn’t require me to think and its guaranteed to be entertaining, I have to be in the mood to watch something like The Wolf Of Wall Street since thats one very long movie. Enjoy your weekend people.

Robcop 2014

In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy – a loving husband, father and good cop – is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.

I have been waiting for a while for this movie, and it was worth the wait, it brought back good memories and they did Robocop justice. I wanted more robot action but I loved the plot of the movie and how it developed and bringing in Michael Keaton as the head of OCP was genius. I even loved the role played by Samuel L Jackson, it was like watching an angry News Commentator going at politicans in the middle of the movie. Joel Kinnaman was the perfect guy to play Alex Murphy, he had the same feel that the original guy did and he played it perfectly. I can’t wait to see the next Robocop after this one, it was just this good, and hoepfully next time around it’s against an army of robots. If you loved the old one then you will love this one.

Review: Thor The Dark World

ThorDarkWorld1

Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

ThorDarkWorld2

Thor is back swinging his Hammer between the seven worlds after the insanity in the Avengers. But there lurks an evil that they do not see and they will rain hell on Asgard. Loved the action that started from the beginning of the movie and the relationship between Thor & Jane picked up where it left off and it is a lot of fun. One hell of a movie and I love what Marvel keeps doing with their movies.

Justice League War – Trailer

The world’s finest heroes found the Justice League in order to stop an alien invasion of Earth.

Another Movie from DC Comics which looks dark and fun, this time around Apokolips attacks earth and this Justice League is based on the new “52” comics which I am loving. Lets see how this movie will turn out, its going to be released in early 2014, I hope DC Comics keeps this animated movies coming I am enjoying them very much.

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.

KICKASS2

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.
