I’ve been dying for this movie since I first heard about it! Still hasn’t changed! Best thing about it… Jeffrey Dean Morgan!!! WOOO!! I know I know, he’s John Wayne, but at least he’s in there…even if it just for a little bit. I still don’t know what to take away from this trailer, who to root for- Batman or Superman?? But I’m more of a Batgirl myself and I literally don’t have a clue what’s going on, but I don’t know how this movie is going to play out… Superman has all the powers, while Batman just has his brains and money… I sure hope it doesn’t have a sappy ending with both of them walking away and coming to a mutual respect for one another when they figure they misunderstood the other person… It sounds like that is exactly what they’re aiming for.
I’m a bit late on the scene with this. It’s been out for about 2 weeks now, and its the one movie I’ve been waiting to see for this summer [anyone else notice that the cinema is quiet this year?]. This movie knows what it’s up against: A world that has seen it all before. It’s the whole reason it even exists, and for me. It fails- because we’ve seen it all before.
The only way a movie can blow me away nowadays is if it has great characters and a brilliant storyline, this has neither.
Jurassic Park is a cult classic. We all know about it, and we all fell in love with it, but rehashing the same ideas in a world that just keeps churning out rehashes off old movies doesn’t work. It sucks.
We get the same one-dimensional characters of every-single-other badly made movie. The graphics were great, but graphics don’t give me a good story or characters to fall in love with, and that is where this movie fell apart. It needed to be sent straight to the beginning of film-making, and instead of worrying about the amazing effects and huge fight scenes, start with the small details- like the characters.
I don’t go to see 3D movies to be blown away, because I’ve seen it too many times now. I go to see 3D movies, just to know that I’m getting the full experience, but I need the characters and storyline to make me love the movie.
Jurassic World just did not do that for me.
We get the two brother’s – the bigger brother is the macho big protector, while the younger one is still emotional and looks up to his bigger brother…really? I know the brother/sister dynamic works like this, but don’t base a large chunk of the character’s interaction with one another on it, because it’s lame.
Sexism plays a HUGE role in this movie, and it pissed me the hell off. How can a woman not be a proffesional business woman, but still need a man to save her? or just have to run around in six-inch heels?…I mean, really? Anyone with two brain cells, would have ditched those heels the second ‘running’ came to mind. Also, why did she need a romantic story? Why can’t women not be strong and independent in movies. Jurassic World use romance just to make her interesting and have the main man kiss them?? I don’t know if Rick Java and Amanda Silver know what originality even stands for. It means coming up with new ideas.
I also got completely lost at what was in Padlock 9, I know now- but it completely stumped me for a good minute- which only means that it wasn’t wasn’t written well into the storyline. I wished they would’ve told us more in conversation on who was inside there [not giving away spoilers].
I’ve waited my whole life [after all the mediocre sequels from the first] for this movie, and it failed. I kinda already had a feeling it wasn’t gong to be anywhere near as good as Jurassic Park. If they spent more time on the characters, it might’ve stood a chance.
Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone, Irrational Man tells the story of when a philosophy professor enters into a relationship with his student.
The movie will will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May and will be released in July.
The movie that everyone has been waiting for has gotten a new tv spot, and it just keeps getting better. We all know the plan drop. It’s probably going to be the one main stunt in the whole movie- but it looks amazing, and the characters are just brilliant as usual. It’s going to be extremely hard to say goodbye, but the franchise has come a long way since the undercover police and the dodgy-looking leon-lighted cars.
Before watching this movie, I didn’t read the synopsis, so I went in completely blind. I wish I didn’t.
I don’t know how to mark this movie. So I’m going to leave the marking system out of this one.
I wanted to see Annabelle the minute it hit cinema, because I think there is something about dolls that scare most people, and the majority of people will have a scary story to tell about a certain doll. I thought it was going to be dark and jumping-out-of-your-skin scary. What we got was a water-down, not-even-there story of a couple and their baby with a certain demonic doll.
I didn’t read the book, and honestly when I started writing this review I was shocked to see the cover of the book popping up on my searches. I would have not in a million years thought that such a book had a premise like this movie. (After selling over 10 million copies, I thought it would have been much more original)
My friend was dying to see this movie since it first came out in the cinema (she is a full grown child) and loves everything disney. If I take out what I disliked about this movie (I’ll get to them later) this movie was AMAZING. Angelina was superb and I couldn’t fault her in any way.
I really really liked this movie. I didn’t see it in the cinema, because it didn’t capture me. It was more of a ‘oh look, Tom Cruise is in another action movie’.
The truth is I only picked this up because I didn’t like anything else, and I knew Paul Walker usually plays in decent movies.
