Red Tails

10 01 2012

I grew up obsessed with everything military.  Looks like a pretty good movie if you’re into history and action.  Nothing’s difficult, everything’s a challenge.

The Dark Knight Rises

19 12 2011

I’m pretty excited by this sequel.  The newer and darker Batman series these past few years has been the best version of the character I’ve seen.  Summer 2012!

HANNA

4 12 2011

I remember seeing the preview of this movie and wanting to watch it when it came out, but as usual, my travel schedule picked up and I lost track of things.  I had a rare night at home last night, and for some reason the movie popped into my head so I decided to watch it.  I honestly think this movie has been slept on.  I remember critics giving it poor reviews while it was in the theater…this movie once again reaffirms my decision that I don’t trust so called critics.  Ok sure, it doesn’t have Academy Award level acting, and it doesn’t feature mind blowing special effects, but the story and the action was enough to keep me thoroughly entertained for almost 2 hours.  At the end of the day, isn’t that what we’re all looking for anyway?  But yea, if you like the lay low for years, and come back for revenge type flick with some good twists, check out Hanna.

Favorite line from the movie:  Adapt or die.

Puss In Boots

7 11 2011

Yes, I know what you’re probably thinking.  Seriously?..Puss & Boots?  Going into it, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this new spin off of the character from Shrek.  But, honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by the movie.  It was both witty, and entertaining almost every scene of the movie.  It actually reminded me a lot of the first Shrek. lots of humor for the adults, and just enough kid stuff to keep the younger ones entertained as well.  Yes, believe it or not, I’m giving Puss & Boots two thumbs up!

ps – It didn’t hurt that the movie screening was part of a VIP Paramount Studios event, complete with breakfast and complimentary snacks and drinks!

A pretty cool behind the scenes look at how the zero gravity hotel fight scene was filmed in the movie Inception.

Kung Fu Panda 2

31 05 2011

Memorial weekend just isn’t complete without watching a summer movie.  While I’m sure many people opted to go with The Hangover 2, Yuri and I along with Freddie and Kevin from Autofashion decided to check out a private screening of Kung Fu Panda 2 in 3D at Paramount Studios instead.  I loved the first Kung Fu Panda, and the second one definitely didn’t disappoint.  I love when film makers are able to entertain kids while balancing enough adult humor to keep people of all ages entertained.  If you enjoy the occasional animated comedy, I’d recommend checking out Kung Fu Panda 2.  Try to catch the movie in 3D if you like that kind of thing, I want to say at least 50% or more of the film was 3D.  I can’t wait for the Kung Fu Panda 3 already!
