Review: Pacific Rim

PR1

As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

PACIFIC RIM

This honestly could not get any cooler, for the first time they made an amazing Robot vs. Monsters movie, not how bad they made Godzilla. Guillermo del Toro knew what he was doing when he put this movie together, he is known for his pop culture movies, but this one looks like it will go mainstream and I hope from the success of this movie that they make more Giant Robot & Monster Movies. The movie is clear, people are fighting for their lives against these monsters which are out to wipe out human kind while they take over the world and the only tool they have are these giant robots. I love the mount of nerdy and sci-fi details that Guillermo brings to his movies, and Pacific Rim is no different, but when Del Toro does it you really understand it. These robots are reason enough to watch the movie, loved it.

OlympusHasFallen

A few movies came out this week that are going to be worth watching this weekend. There are a lot of blockbusters on this list, if you haven’t seen Olympus Has Fallen then you really have to watch it. There are a few unique and interesting movies on this list, the two that caught my eye were Syrup, a movie based on a book from my favorite author, and Trance, which looks like an interesting movie like Memento. And a few comedies thrown into the mix like Admission & Identity Thief, easy and funny for a laugh.

Syrup

Review: Fast & Furious 6

FF61

Hobbs has Dom and Brian reassemble their crew in order to take down a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across 12 countries. Payment? Full pardons for them all.

FF62

I hope they never stop making these movies at the rate they are going. And adding Dwayne Johnson to the mix was the perfect ingredient to make this franchise even better, its rare that a Franchise even lasts this long and becomes this successful but Justin Lin is doing something right with the crew that he has. This time around its a bit different then Rio and the action is even more insane, I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but it is intense and the story is fantastic and the combination of Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson working together is fantastic. And I love the combination of comedy and action that this group of actors bring to the table, and the action is nonstop, some machine is always going fast, and something is always exploding with a pretty good story line. I loved it and I’m hoping for an FF7, but watch it until the end you are in for a surprise.

Jobs – Trailer

The story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

I think everyone was sad with Steve Jobs passing, over time this man proved to be a legend and an innovator and motivator. There are many people who hated him and loved him, but everyone respected him. After watching the trailer, I really think that Ashton Kutcher can pull it off, and he really seems to fit, I’m looking forward to watching this.

Review: Man Of Steel

MAN OF STEEL

A young itinerant worker is forced to confront his secret extraterrestrial heritage when Earth is invaded by members of his race.

MAN OF STEEL

Zack Snyder tried to do something different with this Superman movie, and Henry Cavil played a pretty damn good Superman. The movie turned out to be better then I expected, I heard it got some very good reviews and I heard from some people they didn’t like it, but I honestly enjoyed it. Kevin Costner was pointless in the movie in my opinion, he didn’t fit as the father from Kansas, they should have brought the guy from Smallville the TV Show. Its a bit of a slow start but ZOD is awesome, he is the perfect bad guy in my opinion and the fight scene was fantastic. The darker tone to the movie was a good fit, and I hope that they make another one after this.

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: Identity Thief

IT2013C

Mild-mannered businessman Sandy Patterson travels from Denver to Miami to confront the deceptively harmless-looking woman who has been living it up after stealing Sandy’s identity.

IT2013B

A comedy with a few fun nasty moments, the surprise for me is Melissa McCarthy who is great in Brides Maids and she has her own show, she looks harmless but is nasty in a very funny way. The perfect fit for this movie where Jason Bateman plays the nice guy who gets screwed over. And as things progress the movie gets funnier, an easy fun movie if your looking for a comedy this is a good one.

Review: A Haunted House

Malcolm and Kisha move into their dream home, but soon learn a demon also resides there. When Kisha becomes possessed, Malcolm – determined to keep his sex life on track – turns to a priest, a psychic, and a team of ghost-busters for help.

Marlon Wayans making a comedy horror movie, I know its not a blockbuster movie or a movie you make time for, but its the right movie when you have nothing else to do and want to laugh. I laughed my ass off watching this movie, you have to watch it with a bunch of guys they will understand why. It requires zero brain activity, the best part is when he says black people don’t chase ghosts thats what white people do and it just gets funnier from there, this is as simple stupid funny movies get.
