Review: Chronicle

Three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.

Take Superman and mix in Blair Witch Project and you get Chronicle. An interesting story which takes a different twist on Superpowers. For Andrew, Matt and Steve have stumbled upon something beyond their – or anyone’s – understanding. Their discovery leads them to acquire powerful telekinetic abilities; or simply they have superpowers. They’re now capable of, well, almost anything. They can move objects just by thinking about them, crush cars through force of will. They even learn to fly. It feels like a realistic twist on getting superpowers, and the way it is shot gives it that gritty feel. Chronicle is a new film unlike any you’ve seen before, it’s a superhero movie that’s not really a superhero movie.

Review: Battleship

A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this movie since I was trying to not watch any trailers since I knew it was going to be fun. This is the type of movie you go into expecting to enjoy yourself and walk out with a smile. Honestly this movie turned out to be a better then I expected, I really enjoyed the action, lots of it all over the places. Aliens vs. Battleships and a bit of the Battleship board game idea thrown into the mix. Liam Neeson plays the bad ass admiral in the movie, he is always good at any role he plays, and Taylor Kitsch plays Alex Hopper as the man who always screws up because of his hot head, he is the guy from Friday Night Lights, always liked him. Fun cast for this movie and played out pretty well, a fun movie to watch.

Starship Troopers – Invasion – Trailer

The original Starship Troopers came out 15 years ago and I really did love it, even though watching it now it was a bit cheesy but it was a damn good action Sci Fi for the 90s. Theatrically the first one didn’t do too well, but it still had its fans and the sequels to it were a bit of disaster but this animated movie looks pretty good. This is the first animated feature for it and I think they did a pretty good job based on the trailer and I’m hoping it will be even better.

Falling Skies – First 3 Mins Of Season 2

Season 1 ended on a high with Tom walking into the Alien space ship to save his family and friends. Now we get a glimpse of Season 2 and the action is still going with No sign of Ben. Meanwhile, humans are still hiding behind rubble flinging whatever they can at the otherworldly forces. The first few minutes from the season premiere of Falling Skies reveal a brand new Ben — one who runs into the battlefield stabbing aliens in the head with his big knife. How has the war between the Skitters and the humans changed this kid?

Premieres June 17 – I can’t wait to see it, it was one of the best shows of last summer, and I hope its just as good.

Cost Of Living

The story follows two young security guards who work at an unusual corporation, and they end up having one hell of a bad night fighting off and destroying the dangerous monsters that the Corporation engineers.

An awesome short sci-fi film called Cost of Living, written and directed by BenDavid Grabinski. This great little movie stars Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Bret Harrison (Reaper, Breaking In), it has this gritty feel to it with a touch of comedy and serious at the same time, and a lot of sarcasm, I loved it.

X-Men First Class – Trailer

I always look forward to the X-Men movies and this one seems to be a very well worked out movie. This time around they are taking place in the 1960s and tying it up with the American Cuban Crisis and I really like where this is going. I’m curious to see the characters and this clip makes it look very interesting, June 3 is going to be a good day.
