Max Payne – The Movie


I liked those Max Payne video games and now they have turned it into an action packed movie. They have taken the storyline from the video game and added a little flavor of their own. It looks like its going to be a good one since any movie that has Mark Walhberg, explosions, and guns blazing will definetly turn out to be good. Luckily its coming out in mid October.

Review: You Don’t Mess With The Zohan

I heard about this movie and it was something a little different then Adam Sandlers movies. Zohan is an Elite Israeli Counter Terrorist Officer who is their best fighting machine but he wants to live his life as an elite hair stylist. If you want to watch a funny movie which requires very little brain power then this it. If you don’t have thick skin then this isn’t the movie for you, they make fun of Arabs a lot in this movie, but it does have its good moments. If you have high expectations then you won’t like this movie, if you want a wacky laugh then this is your choice.

Review: The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor


There was a lot of hype revolving this release of The Mummy, and I thought it would be interesting. At this rate sort of have the storyline down, monster comes alive, Brandon has to find a way to kill monster, the end. So I thought they had to have a slightly different approach to keep things interesting. I was wrong, it felt like it wasn’t put together correctly, it doesn’t flow well and you don’t know all the characters as you get to know them before. And I thought Jet Li had a bigger role, but not enough martial arts. I wouldn’t go to this movie if you haven’t seen it, there are better ones out there.

Review: Wanted

A mundane office worker watching life pass him by not really doing anything. Until one day he finds out that the daily migraines he has are an ability to focus beyond human capability, turning him into an elite assassin. A pretty interesting storyline and how they build it up, the action is non-stop as soon as things start kicking up. Its an interesting story with a character you really don’t expect, and Angelina Jolie plays the perfect role, killing people and looking good.

Review: Hellboy II: The Golden Army

I loved the first Hellboy movie in 2004, so when Hellboy The Golden Army was to be released I was looking forward to it for some time. Humans and magical creatures have had a truce for centuries and there are some magical beings that want to break that truce and to destroy the humans, and his tool will be The Golden Army. Hellboy has to figure out what is going on and try to stop him. The best part is that Hellboy is indifferent about everything and he just wants to kick ass and show humans that he exists. The story line is very interesting, and the best part is that there is also another story in development in the sequel for Hellboy and the characters and feel fit perfectly. A good fantasy movie and the best part is that there is a sequel coming out, but hopefully sooner then four years later like this one.

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.

Review: Love Guru

Mike Myers plays the role of Guru Pitka living in Los Angeles after his years of training in India. He is world reknowned for his skills as a Guru, but his one rival is Deepak Chopra. Then enters Jessica Alba who is the owner of a Canadian Hockey team, and her star player is having personal issues and its affecting the game. Mike Myers has played this type of role since Austin Powers, he is entertaining with how corny things could be but this is just a little over the top. You will be laughing from this movie, its an American interpretation of an Indian movie, all that was left was to dance around a tree. It was just a little too corny for my tastes.

Review: Hancock

I always tend to go to Will Smith movies, and this is another block buster for him. He always pulls off these characters perfectly bringing his charisma to the character. He starts off being the bum of a superhero, and I didn’t even know Charlize Theron is in the movie and she is pretty hot. The story is an interesting twist on the normal, and Will Smith is the bum with super powers. He has to clean up his act and be a superhero, the story does get interesting for sure and the action just doesn’t stop. It is a great movie and worth watching, but in Kuwait I think I counted 13 to 16 times that it was cut, sometimes 2-3 seconds and sometimes 10 second cuts it was extremely annoying.

Review: Never Back Down

Now this was a movie I was waiting for, the trailer showed a bunch of guys fighting. There wasn’t much that I needed more then that. Then there was Djimon Hounsou (The Guy from Amistad) and he was ripped, kicking ass left right and center. It is a very entertaining movie, with a good sound track, and very little brain functionality needed. Just watch and enjoy.
