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.

Review: Safe House

A young CIA agent is tasked with looking after a fugitive in a safe house. But when the safe house is attacked, he finds himself on the run with his charge.

A very solid movie from two solid actors, Denzel Washington can make any movie better, and I know a few people aren’t the biggest fans of Ryan Reynolds but he did a fantastic job in this one. Ryan stars the CIA rookie that in charge of a boring Safe House while Denzel is the bag spy that everyone is after. Things start to get interesting as Denzel surrenders himself to the US Embassy, and things just keep getting crazier and crazier, the plot always seem to thicken and Ryan & Denzel are at each other’s throats through the whole ordeal while being chased by men intent on killing them. The movie keeps you on your toes and I loved how it played out, Denzel has another great role under his belt.

Review: The Change Up

A comedy in which a married father accidentally switches bodies with his best friend, leading to a series of wildly complex difficulties.

The trailers for this movie looked good, but I’m happy they didn’t give the story away, it got a lot funnier and I like that it was rated R, these guys went to some disgusting extents for their roles. I’m a huge fan of Ryan Reynolds and Jason Batemen, they are excellent comedians and as a duo they really pulled this off. A lot of crazy stuff takes place that these two have to adjust to the switch but they each handle it differently with some hilarious results, great movie and some hilarious parts.

Green Lantarn @ ComicCon

GLPoster

For those who don’t know, Comic Con is the biggest Comic Fan convention in the world taking place in San Diego, and many big movies are previewed their with panels from all the actors, producers, directors, and writers. And luckily over the last few years comics are taken more seriously thanks to Batman & Iron Man, but now the movie blockbuster of next summer is Green Lantern. First thing first, I’m a huge Green Lantern fan, him being my favorite comic book character, a ring the has unlimited power, and its only limits is your will power and imagination. New of the movie got me excited but I wasn’t sure of Ryan Reynolds, since I’m used to him being a comedian, the funny guy, the guy that made us one of the best comedies period, Van Wilder, and I also loved him in Smokin Aces, but as the Green Lantern I wasn’t sure. Its a story you have known all your life, and now that it’s coming to the big screen, I just hope that no one screws the movie up, but after that Comic Con panel video below, I have to say that I think Ryan Reynolds will rock as Hal Jordan the Green Lantern, especially at the 1:32 mark.

Review: The Proposal

I’m a fan of Ryan Reynolds, he makes funny look easy and with Sandra Bullock they make a very entertaining romantic comedy. Bullock is a top of the line editor for a huge publishing company who might lose her visa to stay in the US since she is Canadian, and Reynolds is her top assistant that she says she will marry and goes along with it to guarantee her green card. What a fiasco they go through as Bullock has to take down her tough woman look but she has to act all nice with her fiance in front of his family and that turns into the funniest moments, and Bullock is pretty funny herself. A fun romantic comedy really worth watching and there are some intensely funny moments.
