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.

Mission Impossible 4 – Ghost Protocol

The IMF is shut down when it’s implicated in the bombing of the Kremlin, causing Ethan Hunt and his new team to go rogue to clear their organization’s name.

When they kept saying IMF I kept thinking International Monetary Fund but I kept reminding myself that this is some secret US Government Agency. We are back with Ethan Hunt, “Your mission, should you decide to accept it … This Message Will Self Destruct”. This time around the team are on their own, they are being framed for the destruction of the Kremlin and things are getting interesting. The action is nonstop stop from the get go and they go from one continent to the other trying to figure out what their enemy will do next. The action is great but the story was somewhat disconnected, it seems they wanted the action to top over thing else which it did and a lot of times things didn’t make any sense. Ethan Hunt could fight off a team of trained assassins but gets his butt handed to him by one evil genius with zero fighting capability. Still it was a lot of fun to watch and if you are looking for some action then this movie is it for you, and don’t expect too much from it.

Review: Valkryie

Tom Cruise does seem to find these unique movies, and he plays the role of the Colonel Stauffenberg extremely well. It is one of the biggest secrets kept during the WWII, a group of German men who looked to stop the atrocities which were being perpetrated by Hitler. This movie takes WWII from a different angle, from those inside of Germany hoping to save it from the brink of destruction at the hands of Hitler. Even with Hitler’s paranoia they manage to move forward with their plans. Stauffenberg pushes them harder as the ball starts rolling. It is a movie not to be missed which brings to light a part of history which was unknown.
