Lucy – 2014

A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

The concept of human brain develpment turned into a movie has been done a few times, but with the voice of Morgan Freeman and the acting and action capabilities of Scarlett Johansson it is bound to be a potent formula. It’s a movie that pulls you in and your on one hell of thrill ride as Scarlett Johansson turns from a ditzy club goer to a merciless warrior with super human capabilities. The action scenes are great and she kicks ass in them, and then there is her cold demeanor which she pulls off effortlessly. Loved the pace of the movie and the story, but then it just gets a little too weird and science-eee at the end. The conclusion should have been a bit less time travel and more ridiculous action, still a fun movie to watch.

 

Kill La Kill – Must See

Plot Summary: Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She’s looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman’s identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special “goku uniform,” and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.

A fantastic anime from the creators of Gurren Laggan, with the same spirit and fire that fueled that anime and I especially love the style. You will always be routing for Ryuuki Matoi in the story and this is one of the best developed storylines I have seen in a long time, you can’t help but love all the characters, this is a rare breed of anime. And there is a fantastic twist towards the end that really gets you riled up. The action is nonstop if a lot of fan service nudity, but there is no episode that leaves you disappointed, and full of humor of every kind. If you have any inclination towards anime then this is a must, and if you haven’t seen it then you are really missing out.

I Frankenstein

Frankenstein’s creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.

I was extremely looking forward to this, I loved the original Underworld, it was seriously bad ass and this looked to be like one hell of a movie, and I am fan of Erin Eckhart he was in a few movies that I really liked The Dark Knight, Olympus Has Fallen, Battle Los Angeles, Thank You for Smoking. This had an interesting start and things were developing then the bad guy of the movie turned out to be the bad guy from Underworld, the story took twists and turns where it didn’t make sense what so ever. It was an interesting fantasy type movie, and they were trying to bring the Frankenstein story to this age, but it just didn’t make sense. Erin Eckhart is a good actor but he needs help choosing scripts, he has had a few hits and misses, this was a miss for sure. It got a one out of five because it has Eric Eckhart and the Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker from Chuck).

Review: Oblivion

Oblivion1

A veteran assigned to extract Earth’s remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself.

Oblivion2

I was very excited to see this movie, I know that sometimes movies ride on their stars but this SciFi movie looked legit with Tom Cruise and especially with Morgan Freeman. If you haven’t seen it don’t waste your time, the movie trys to be a complex science fiction movie but ends up going in way too many directions and there are too many holes in the storyline. I don’t even know why Morgan Freeman was in the movie, it was doing very well but then things went wrong in too many directions and honestly I got so bored and couldn’t believe I was so excited to see it.

Review: Lockout

A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

What this movie lacks in special effects it makes up for in character, well at least Guy Pearce does, the guy is perfect for the role. Just the right combination of sarcastic and snazzy, he is the perfect tough guy lead role for this movie and they had the right type of crazies in it. The special effects were lacking significantly, the CG effects from the motorcycle chase to falling out of space were pretty. Pearce reveals a sort of endless reserve of cocky charm, a back pocketful of jokes for the violent situations in which he finds himself. He carrys the characters in his scene including Maggie Grace, the lead females. But take the action movie on its own propulsive merits, and it’s good scifi fun in a tidy package.

William Shatner – Get A Life

After seeking out his fellow Star Trek commanding officers in The Captains, William Shatner is back with another documentary, this time focused on the fans. From the trailer, William Shatner’s Get a Life! looks like an affectionate examination of Star Trek fandom and why the franchise has meant so much to so many.

For all the Star Trek Fans out there this is a must, I still have to watch Star Trek’s The Captains, just makes me feel good seeing Star Trek. Since Enterprise went offline it was the last Star Trek show since the movie from JJ Abrahsm in 2009, and there is just something that I love about Star Trek. William Shatner plans to explore it in this fun documentary, I love his sense of humor.

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.

Iron Sky – Trailer

This just can’t get any more ridiculous, I love it. Nazis have been hiding in space for 70 years to invade the earth and get their revenge. Spaceships and a full on battle, with a ridiculous US President, this is hilarious and I hope there are lot of space battle going on. The political humor is great but I’m loving this insane orbital Nazi-smashing. Lets see if the movie is as good as the trailer it comes out April 2012.

Battleship – Trailer

A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals. The second trailer for Hasbro’s naval warfare invasion flick goes for a stunning air, land and sea assault of colossal spaceships, cool cyborg soldiers and an insane arsenal of stuff that goes BOOM. I’m gonna enjoy this movie, its going to be awesome.
