A lot of people don't understand why I would enjoy a Tyler Perry Movie. Well, Madea is the reason. I happen to think that Madea is one of the best created characters ever. She has wisdom, sass, and isn't afraid to kick yo' ass. LOL.
As usual, Madea ends up in the middle of everyone business... solving everyone's problems... except her own.
Besides Madea, Shirley has gotten bad news... and it's heartbreaking to watch her story unfold. You physically, emotionally, and mentally feel Shirley's pain. It tears at your heart and festers in your soul. Never say Tyler Perry can't write a story cause... DAMN he can write a story.
I have yet to see a Tyler Perry movie I did not like... and this one is no different. Can't wait for the next movie Madea is in.
Make no mistake about it... I am a MUPPET FANATIC.
I've been a Muppet fan since the day I first saw them as a child. I can remember sitting around watching The Muppet Show and just having such a good time. It's one of the fondest memories I have of my childhood.
The Muppets have been out of the limelight FAR too long.
We the fans HAVE MISSED THEM.
But now they are back. AND BACK WITH PURPOSE!
Thank you to all who made this movie happen... it felt like a Muppet movie and it was AWESOME. I cried at the end cause I felt that it finally did the Muppets the justice they so rightly deserve.
See this movie. I won't ruin anything for you. Just see it. If you are a Muppet fan, you have to see this... you have to own it.
All these years later... THE MUPPETS STILL HAVE IT!!!!
I've seen a lot of Exorcism movies. Most of them being VERY bad. The last good one I saw was the Last Exorcism. Well worth watching... well worth owning.
I was hesitant to step into the movie THE DEVIL INSIDE.
Yet... here I went...
I have to say, it was believable... even the ending. I love realism when it comes to horror... which is why The Devil Inside interested me to begin with... also that, and I am addicted to Exorcism movies/articles/documentaries.
Don't go into this expecting Green Pea Soup to be spit everywhere and a lot of gore. Go into this movie expecting to see some things that would FREAK YOU OUT if they happened to you in real life. If you can do that, you'll enjoy this movie. If you can't you might as well skip this one. You have to look at it from a stand point of real life to truly enjoy it. If this happened to you ... it would scare the hell out of you. Not me personally... I am so immune to scary things it's unreal, however, a "normal" person would probably have a freaking heart attack.
Now make no mistake about it... the ending SUCKS. But aside from that... the film is tolerable for those of us who like EXORCISM subjects.
For me... The eerie vibe throughout the movie, the realistic effects, the great acting, and the really good story make this for one of the better of the Exorcism movies out there on the market. Not the best though.... could have done a little more, but this is well worth watching!
Transplanted to Mars, a Civil War vet discovers a lush planet inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter a princess who is in desperate need of a savior.
I really thought this movie would be bad... but it was quite the opposite. It had great effects, awesome acting, and a good story. Even the ending was good enough for me... I know, I know... SHOCKING. You will get a little lost at the beginning cause it's a little heavy to start out... just have some patients. Once John Carter gets to MARS... the fun starts and it will be a ride you enjoy!!!!
If you are a fan of the Pirates series of movies, let's just say, this one doesn't disappoint at all.
Johnny Depp is again at the helm as Captain Jack Sparrow. No one could EVER do this part better than Johnny Depp. Believe me when I say, after 4 movies, he doesn't miss a step as Captain Jack and it's all just as fresh as movie one.
The addition of Blackbeard and his daughter are very well written and casted. I didn't even miss Keira Knightly as Elizabeth and Orlando Bloom as Will Turner... in fact, I found it rather refreshing that they were NOT in this movie at all.
Like I said, if you are a fan of the first 3, On Stranger Tides delivers and holds true to the spirit of Pirates of the Caribbean. It's a must see... Savvy?!?
Perseus braves the treacherous underworld to rescue his father, Zeus, captured by his son, Ares, and brother Hades who unleash the ancient Titans upon the world.
After Clash of the Titans, I expected a lot from a sequel... especially being the Greek Mythology Nut I am.
Wrath delivers everything I hoped for and then some.
Sam Worthington returns as Perseus... he's dead on when it comes to this role. He's so believable as a demi-god who doesn't want the power but doesn't want to not help his father Zeus who again is played by the GREAT Liam Neeson. Again returning is Ralph Fiennes as (my personal favorite) Hades, ruler of the Underworld. Liam and Ralph are SO believable as God brothers and they have this huge chemistry when acting together.
Now new additions to the cast such as Rosamund Pike as Andromeda (whom I totally loved by the way), Toby Kebbell as Agenor (who made me laugh several times but didn't turn the story too much toward comedy), and Edgar Ramirez as Ares made Wrath of the Titans a really well rounded cast. I was pleased to see Bill Nighy as Hephaestus... he's one of my favorite actors and to see him is ALWAYS a pleasure but he was a VERY good Hephaestus with his babbling and "One last godly thing...".
Anyway... on to the creatures...
The Chimera wasn't half bad. I would have rather it not look so damn rough but hey... whatever. It wasn't the beast I was looking forward to. The 3 Cyclopes were VERY well done and believable. I enjoyed seeing them done in a way that didn't rob the story ... and it actually lived up to what I think (and probably most people think) a Cyclops should look. The Minotaur... while done in a believable way was not in the movie enough. The whole Minotaur fight was brief and really could have been explored more. And finally... Kronos the father of Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. I was extremely pleased that they made Kronos so well. He kept his Titan stature but wasn't too overly huge making it a very well done effect.
Between the Effects, Acting, and the story in general... Wrath of the Titans is very enjoyable. The ending got to me... but of course, as a fan of Greek Mythology... it was supposed to get to me.
