We Bought A Zoo, Awwww Cute

We Bought A Zoo is so cute and funny and I surpisingly liked this movie. It's a good famiy movie, cute for the children and funny for the adults. There are good preformances by the adults and even by the children. The little girl, Rosie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones), was super cute and funny.
Benjamin Mee's (Matt Damon) wife has died six months ago and his family is still struggling with this loss. His daughter, Rosie, is dealing with the death of her mom fairly well, but the son, Dylan (Colin Ford) is having lots of problems. Benjamin decides that he needs to move and his brother, Duncan (Thomas Haden Church) agrees with him. Benjamin goes on a house tour and finds the most perfect house for his family, but with the house comes a zoo. He decides it will be good for his family and moves to the house and will keep the zoo going. The zoo manager, Kelly (Scarlett Johansson), doesn't think that Benjamin can do it. There is a lot of work and a lot of money that goes into the zoo. The zoo does really good for Rosie, but Dylan just is upset with his dad. Dylan does make a new friend at the zoo, Lily (Elle Fanning). To get the zoo up and running, they have to pass inspection with a really mean dude from the USDA.
This movie was really funny and had a lot of family love and drama. I laughed a lot and was touched in my heart. It was cute and a good family movie. This movie also based on a true story of the Mee family who still ownes the zoo. Movie is rate PG for some language and theatrical elements.

The Darkest Hour, Pretty Decent

So The Darkest Hour was a pretty decent movie. There was some good action and a solid enough plot line to entertain for an hour and a half. There was some logical science around it too, but the alien (once you finally see it) is pretty lame.
The movie is set in Moscow, Russia. Sean (Emile Hirsch) and Ben (Max Minghella) are in Moscow to try to promote their business, but get shut down. So to drown their sorrows, they go to a Russian night club where they meet two pretty girls, Natalie (Olivia Thirlby) and Anne (Rachael Taylor). They are having lots of fun until all the power and electronics go off. Curious, they all go outside to see yellow lights falling from the sky. One of the lights lands in front of them and then goes invisible. A cop goes to poke the spot where the light was before and gets turned into dust. The people realize they are under attack and rush back into the club to try to take cover. The alien light follows them in and starts dusting everyone. Our hero four and their business rival, Skyler (Joel Kinnaman) end up in the basement of the club and hid there for five days. They finally have to go outside and they decide to try to make it to the US embassy. That plan doesn't work cause everyone is dead, but they did learn that the alien lights make all the electronics light up when they are near. So they use lights as warning signals and they also find out a way to hide from the aliens.
I wont say more about the movie so not to spoil more of it, but it was pretty good and if you like alien movies, this would be one to check out. The drama is good and there is some what of a romantic subplot for those who like that. If you don't want to spend money at the theater for it, it is defiantly one to rent. Rated PG-13 for si-fy action and some language.

First Trailer for Prometheus (6/8/2012)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1446714/#lb-vi2035129881

First trailer for the movie Prometheus. This kind of makes me think of Alien mixed with 2001: A Space Odyssey. I didn't like Space Odyssey but I do like Alien. I guess I will have to wait for more trailers to figure if I want to see it.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Awesome

Well Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was pretty dang awesome. Well awesome if you like action, explosions, hot dudes, awesome technology, and all that stuff. I especially liked Jeremy Renner cause he is really hot.
The movie starts with an operative running from people but then getting shot by an assassin. Then to Benji (Simon Pegg) and Jane (Paula Patton) breaking Ethan (Tom Curise) out of a Russian jail. They need him to get in to the Kremlin to get secret papers on a bad guy who just stole Russian nuclear missile launch codes. But it turns out that the files had already been taken by another person and that person plans to blow up the Kremlin to hide the fact that he took those files. Well the bombing of the Kremlin gets put on Ethan and his team. So the Secretary of the IMF tells Ethan that he has to find the guy who bombed the Kremlin, but the Secretary gets shot and Ethan and analysis Brandt (Jeremy Renner) have to get back to the team and follow the clues to get the codes back and stop the bad guy.
The movie was soo boss. They go to Dubai and are hanging out the windows of the tallest building and there is a sand storm and they go to Mumbai and chase people and all this awesome stuff. If you like the Mission Impossible movies, then you will like this one. If you like all the other things I mentioned above, then you would like this movie. If you are just bored and want to go to a movie, then go to this one. The movie is rated PG-13 for action and violence and some swearing.

The Muppets, Freaking Hilarious

The Muppets movie is sooo freaking hilarious. I was laughing soo hard and there was some awesome music (AC/DC, Jefferson Starship, etc.). It was funny and awesome and rated PG so its good for children.
The movie is a story about a kid/muppet named Walter and his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary's girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams). They are going to LA to the Muppets studio. At the Muppets Studio, Walter overhears a greedy tyrant Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) is going to buy the studio to get the oil under the studio. Walter gets Gary and Mary to help him talk to Kermit so they can fight Tex. Kermit figures they have to get the gang back together and do a telethon to raise 10 million dollars to buy the studio back. They go on a road trip to collect all the Muppets and then pitch their idea for the telethon. They get their time slot but have a limited time to set it all up.
This movie was super funny and full of great songs and some funny dancing. If you are a fan of the Muppets, this is a movie for you. If you like cute, happy movies, this is for you. If you like family movies, then check this movie out. I loved it and I think everyone will like it and enjoy bringing their family to see it. :)

This is a trailer for the Snow White adaption called Mirror, Mirror. I will have to admit that this looks a bit better than Snow White and the Huntsman. Well this movie looks like its is a comedy and the other one is serious. And Julia Roberts is the evil stepmother. :)

21 Jump Street (3/16/2012)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi1681366553

I was watching A Night at the Roxberry the other day and this made me think of it.

This is the first trailer for the new movie 21 Jump Street and it looks soooooo freaking hilarious. I highly doubt the lame tv show from the 80's was even this cool. Well I didn't want to see it before, but now I really do. This movie has Channing Tatum and Johan Hill and they are freaking dorks.

Tower Heist, A Must See

The movie Tower Heist is sooo freaking funny. I was laughing my butt off the whole time. This movie is full of funny and some high action and some good acting. When you pack a movie this full of celebrities and comedians, you shouldn't expect any less. I will say that there were a couple of jokes that were a little on the inappropriate side and a bunch of mild swearing for anyone who is turned off by that.
Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) is the manager of a million dollar tower estate. He makes sure everything goes well for the people who live there, including the multi-millionair Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda). His staff include his brother-in-law Charlie (Casey Affleck), elevator operator Enrique (Michael Pena), his doorman Lester (Stephen Henderson), a maid Odessa (Gabourey Sidibe), and many others. Some of the Tower's residents, like Mr. Fitzhugh (Matthew Broderick) are falling on hard times because of the downed economy. This also includes Mr. Shaw, who is caught by the FBI for swindling many people, including the pension fund of the Tower's workers. Everyone is hit hard and the doorman Lester takes it really hard and tries to commit suicide. This makes Josh really mad and him and Charlie and Enrique go to confront Mr. Shaw. Mr. Shaw doesn't really feel remorseful and so Josh beats up Mr. Shaw's prized car. This gets the three workers fired. Well Josh decides that he is going to steal the 20 million dollars Shaw has hiding in his penthouse. To do this, he Slide (Eddie Murphy) to help him. They devise a big plan to get the 20 million and set it in motion.
This movie is sooo fun and has a bunch of twists and turns that keep you guessing. There is also a big surprise when the go looking for the money. I highly recommend this movie! Rated PG-13 for language and sexual content.

Temptation Cupcakes in Logan, Utah

Holy wonderful cupcakes. Today, I went to Temptation Cupcakes on 1010 N. Main Street in Logan, Utah and I think I am in love. I normally don't like cakes or cupcakes or muffins and will eat that stuff on occasion. These cupcakes were delicious and I will never hate them. I had chocolate ganauche cupcakes, which were chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganauche and a colored Sixlet on top. The cupcake was moist and chocolaty and delicious. My roommates and I plan on going again tomorrow. The cupcakes are a little expensive, $2.50 per cupcake or $23 for a baker's dozen (and other smaller amounts), but they are dang worth it.
Check that place out.

In Time, Bringing Sexy Back

In Time, bringing sexy back, well sort of. Full of action and celebrities but a little lacking in the storyline. There was no background which kind of left me trying to figure out why some of the things the characters were doing or talking about. If you are a fan of Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, or Cillian Murphy then this is a movie that would be more towards your interest.
This movie takes place in a world where everyone stops aging at the age of 25, but only have one more to live. To live longer, people have to work because time has become the currency of the world. Will Salas (Timberlake) is 28 years old, living in the ghetto, and working day today to stay alive. One night he saves a rich drunk guy from getting robbed of his time. The drunk guy, Henry Hamilton, has over 100 years on his clock and is tired of living. He gives  all of his time to Will and dies. Will decides to use his new time to get out of the ghetto and go to the uptown New Greenwich to try to take their money. The death of Henry has alerted some unwanted attention by the time keepers headed by Raymond Leon (Murphy). The time keepers are looking for Will because they believe that he killed Henry. Well in New Greenwich, Will uses his new time to meet some new people like Philippe Weis (Vincent Kartheiser) and his daugher, Sylvia (Seyfried). The time keepers manage to find Will and he kidnaps Sylvia to try to stay alive. Will takes Sylvia to the ghetto to try to hide and figure out a plan, but the time keepers are on his tail and some other people looking for his time.
This movie was pretty fast paced to keep your attention and there was a bunch of action. The story was a little disjunct and the dialog kind of lame,  but this is an action movie so who cares. My friend asked me if Justin takes his shirt off and yes he does a couple of times. The concept of the movie is cool and does make a good syfy action movie. My suggestion is to see it when it gets to a cheap movie theater or rent it. :)

The Lorax (3/2/2012)

Super excited.

Rise of the Guardians (11/21/2012)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1446192/

This looks really funny.
''Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost and the Sandman band together to form a united front against the Bogeyman" (imdb.com)
The Easter Bunny is voiced by Hugh Jackman, Jack Frost is Chris Pine, Isla Fisher is Tooth Fairy, and Santa Clause is Alec Baldwin. WTF?! Freaking funny. Can't wait.

The Thing, A Scary Thing

This movie, The Thing, is a prequel to the 1982 The Thing remake of the 1951 The Thing From Another World. Sorry if that confused you. :) This movie was actually pretty good, and the graphics were pretty scary and gross.
The movie starts in 1982 Antarctica with a couple of Norwegians driving searching for the source of a strange signal. They fall through a crack in the ground and find a huge ship in the ice. IN the US, grad student, Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is enlisted to go to the site and help. She goes to Antarctica with a bunch of Norwegian guys and a couple of Americans, one the Americans is Carter (Joel Edgerton). At the site, they find the alien in the ice and cut it out and take it back to their base. The head doctor guy takes sample of the alien and determines that it is actually an alien. The ice around the alien starts melting and the alien pops out of the ice. So the crew goes looking for the alien and find it, the alien attacks one of the guys and starts to eat it. The American guys light it on fire and kill it. So they study the alien and it looks like the alien is mutating and changing into the people. Kate sees that it can't mutate inorganic material and uses fillings in people's teeth as a sign of who is alien or not. They can't let the alien get away and have to stop it.
This movie was actually really good and the aliens look pretty freaky. There is a lot of gore just for anyone who is squeamish. And Joel Ederton is in it and he is good looking though I wish he would take off his shirt cause after seeing Warrior, he is really cut. Haha. If you have seen the old one, you would like this one too and the end loops into the old one.

Paranormal Activity 3, Scary...No it's Not!

Sorry for those of you who don't get the title. It is related to Kittens Inspired by Kittens on Youtube. Well Paranormal Activity 3 was a giant let down. Not very scary. There was a couple of times I jumped, but nothing like when I saw the first two. Oh and nothing in the trailer happened in the movie.
The movie starts with older Kristi and older Katie and they find these VHS tapes from when they were kids, but they get stole from the house. Then it goes back to the past. In 1988, Julie and her boyfriend Dennis are living together and Dennis is documenting weird things in their house. When something weird happens, Kristi says its her imaginary friend, Toby. Well weirder and weirder things start to happen and the attacks on the girls starts to increase. The whole time, Kristi says its Toby. Then stuff happens at the end....
This movie wasn't as good as the first and second one, but it did give some background to the stories. I will tell you that I don't think the plot of this movie fits so well to the childhood stories in the other ones, but I can't really remember cause I haven't seen the other ones since they came out. Oh well.

Real Steel, Real Awesome

Robot boxing, is that what our future holds? I don't know but it certainly is freaking awesome. Real Steel is an emotional ride and a true underdog story. Hugh Jackman does a solid job and being a jerk then turned good guy. The kid, Dakota Goyo, does a great job and is my favorite person in the movie.
In the year 2027, Charlie Kenton (Jackman) is an out of luck robot boxing manager. His robots suck really bad and he owes everyone money. To make money, he takes his robot to a county fair in Texas to fight a bull, but Charlie loses focus and his robot gets trashed. While trying to get out of the fair without having to pay up on bets, he is stopped by some guys looking for him. They tell him that an old girlfriend of his is dead and has left his son, Max (Goyo) behind. Charlie goes to a court house where Max's aunt and rich uncle are trying to get custody of him. Charlie makes a secret deal with the uncle, for 50 thousand dollars, Charlie will sign over Max and keep him for the 2 months the aunt and uncle are in Italy.
Charlie uses money to buy a new robot. Charlie intends to leave Max with his friend, Bailey (Evangeline Lilly), but Max gets Charlie to take him along. Charlie gets his new robot into a big fight, but loses again and his robot is scraped. Charlie takes Max to a junk yard to look for scraps to make a new robot where they come across a robot. Charlie thinks it's junk and tells Max that if he wants it he has to haul it out himself. Max gets to robot out and cleans him up. The robot turns out to be an old sparing robot named Atom and he has a shadow function that allows him to copy and remember movements. So Max gets Charlie to train Atom and get him in fights, where Atom starts winning.
This movie was really awesome and cool. There is a lot of action, comedy, and emotional bonding. Max was my favorite character in the movie. Before a fight, Max and Atom would dance in the ring and that part is super cool. You really fall in love with the characters and watch as they progress to love each other. :) Check it out. Rated PG-13 for action and some language.

What's Your Number?, Lots of Butts

After seeing What's Your Number? this weekend, I must warn you, this movie has a lot of butts in it. But (haha) the movie is really funny and really cheesy. Anna Faris is in her normal role of the slutty blonde and Chris Evans does a good job in a romantic comedy (and is really hot). I laughed a bunch and was wooed with its woman-wooing-chick-flick ways. The movie is rated R for swearing, crude jokes, and partial nudity (as mentioned above).
The movie starts out with  Ally Darling (Faris) waking up next to her current boyfriend. She does the whole get ready before he wakes up so he doesn't know I'm not good looking in the morning thing. Well she ends up dumping him that morning. She then goes to work where she gets fired. Feeling depressed, she picks up a magazine and reads an article about how the national average of lovers a woman has is 10. This makes her upset and determined to count up the number of men she has slept with. Her final count is 19. This depresses her more and at her sister's rehearsal dinner gets really drunk and makes a really funny toast.
So that night she tells her sister and friends about her number. They look over the article again and it also says that when a woman has over 20 lovers, she can't find a husband. So Ally vows to not sleep with anyone else and again gets really drunk. She then wakes up the next morning with someone else in her bed. While trying to find a way to get rid of number 20, her neighbor Colin (Evans) comes over to use her apartment to hid from the girl he slept with that night. Colin helps Ally get number 20 guy out of her apartment. Well Ally has broken her rule and then comes up with an idea. The idea is to track down all her past lovers to see if one of them could be her likely husband so she doesn't go over the number 20. To do this she enlists Colin because he knows how to find people in exchange for helping him hid from all his one night stands. They begin tracking down these men while Ally and Colin start to become friends.
This movie is corny like any other romantic comedy and has a very predictable ending like any other. But is you want to see Chris Evans practically naked, you should see this. It was funny and made me smile. Check it out. :)

A reformed criminal returns to his old ways when his brother-in-law gets into trouble. His objective: smuggle $15 million into the US to pay his relative's debt.

Man on a Ledge (1/13/2012)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi827235353
"An ex-cop framed turned con (Sam Worthington) threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop. The nearest New York Police officer immediately responds to a screaming women and calls dispatch. More Officers arrive with swat and tactical command along with FDNY. The NYPD then dispatches a female police psychologist personally requested to talk him down from the ledge. However, unbeknownst to the NYPD on the scene, the suicide attempt is a cover up for the biggest diamond heist ever pulled" (imdb.com).

Actually looks pretty interesting. Check it out.

Contagion, This Could Happen

Contagion is a dramatic thriller about what happens in the CDC when a major epidemic occurs and how fear is spread. The movie was interesting as that none of the characters had a major roll, all were shown pretty equal and given equal amounts of development. This movie is more likely than a zombie outbreak and was really good.
The opening scene is Beth Emhoff (Gwyenth Paltrow) at an airport in Chicago coming from Hong Kong, looking a little sick. She gets a phone call from her secret affair and then gets on the plane. She arrives at her home in Minnesota to her son and husband, Mitch Emhoff (Matt Damon). Beth gets worse and then dies along with her son, but Mitch is immune. His daughter from another marriage comes to live with him. The CDC advisor, Dr. EllisCheever (Laurence Fishburne), sends doctors, Dr. Erin Mears (Kate Winslet) and Dr. Leonora Orantes (Marion Cotillard), to Minnesota and Hong Kong to investigate. They learn that the disease is bat and pig and has a very short incubation time. While a blogger, Alan Krumwiede (Jude Law), is creating some panic as he prescribes forsythia as a cure for the virus. The virus starts to spread and mutate and kills 29 million people. You watch as people struggle against the challenges of living with and around the virus. There is mass fear and riots and craziness everywhere.
This movie is pretty true to what happens when a public becomes paranoid and riots. Lots of people die and it makes you think of how viruses spread and how much you come in contact with these things. The movie is really intense and you get really nervous but it ends all happy (I was thinking there would be a twist and everyone would die). Shows what I know. The movie was rated PG-13 for disturbing content (dead and dying people) and some language. I suggest you check this out if you like plage stories.

Warrior, Holy Amazing

The movie Warrior has been under advertised but not under rated and if you see it, you will know why. This movie was incredible with great acting, great fight scenes, great story, and great everything. If you like good "sports" stories, MMA, good drama, and hot dudes, you should see this movie.
A young man, Tommy Conlon (Tom Hardy), comes home to his father, Paddy Conlon (Nick Nolte), that he hasn't seen in a very long time. Tommy left with his mother years earlier to escape his father's drunken abuse. Tommy's brother, Brendan (Joel Edgerton), is a physics teacher with a family who doesn't see his father either. Brendan used to fight MMA and goes back to fighting to try and stop the foreclosure on his house. Both brothers see the huge tournament that has come up, the Spartan Tournament. The tournament is a world wide bracket of 16 fighters where the winner gets 5 million dollars. Both train and get into the tournament where Tommy is a big contender and Brendan is the underdog. To to win, they have to fight some big and scary dudes, including a huge Russian that is slotted at number one.
The movie is full of family tension and fights. The brothers and the father all argue and fight each other with some sad things said (well I was sad). You eventually learn things about Tommy and why he is in the fight and Brendan learns things about his brother and father. At the end, you don't know who to cheer for, but come away with a warm heart. I loved this movie and I think you should go see it cause I have a feeling that it is going to win some awards.

The movie is rated PG-13 for fighting and some language.

Apollo 18, Freaky and Intense

Apollo 18, pretty freaky and very intense. I even let out a startled cry during the movie. "Decades-old found footage from NASA's abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon" (imdb.com). The alien weren't even your typical aliens, which was good. The movie was shot in the style of old film to give it a 1973 look.
Three astronauts were sent to space on Apollo 18 under classified and never made know to the public. The movie was edited from 80 hours of footage uploaded to the internet (I can't remember/find the site they referenced). Two of the men went down to the surface of the moon to setup listening posts (as they were told) to watch for Soviet missiles. In the movie, it points out movie rocks and weird things as they go along. Well the men find an abandoned Soviet lunar lander, evidence that the Russians had made it to the moon. They find the body of the Cosmonaut at the bottom of a crater and pull him up. They find a strangeish rock in a rip of his suit. Finishing their mission, as they are about to lift off, the power and communications cutoff and on. The communications remain off because the radio has been tipped over. As one of the men go out to fix it, he starts screaming and saying their is something inside his suit and goes down. The other man goes out to get him and bring him back in. They discover he was cut by something and has a rock under his skin in the cut and get it out (gross because one of the guys says that it starts moving). Anyways, they cant get off the surface and are having troubles while they guy who was cut starts to act crazy and gets sick.
This movie was super intense and crazy. I really liked it. There was a historical element and a horror element mixed together and the "aliens'' were not your typical aliens. The aliens were like spider/crab things and you never got a good look at them, which heightened the suspense of the movie. And one of the guys was pretty good looking, Warren Christie. The movie is rated PG-13 for like horror and brief language and intensity, probably not one for little ones.

New Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

It's about time I got around to this. It has been a hectic week movie back to school and my first week of school. But anyways... Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
The extremely creepy things are back and more extremely creepy than ever! With about 30 years of technology and Guillermo Del Tor (a gifted horror writer/director) writing the movie, you can bet the creepy things are going to be better.
As evidenced by this picture. (The only one I could find of the creepy things.)
This movie closely followed the original storyline with some tweaks and some historical elements thrown in to keep it grounded in some reality. One of the changes was to make the creepy things a bit less mysterious by making them gnome/fairies ("Get the fairies, Sam!" From Supernatural. That was all I could think about when they called them gnome/fairies). "A young girl is sent to live with her estranged father and his girlfriend at their new home. The father, Alex has plans to spruce up the home with the help of his interior decorator girlfriend, Kim. The previous owner of the home was a famous painter who mysteriously disappeared. Alex's daughter, Sally, soon discovers the cause of the painter's disappearance" (imdb.com). Over all, this movie was really creepy and good.
The movie starts out in the past as a maid is attending to a famous painter (by the name of Blackwood). He kills her and takes her teeth and his teeth and tries to use them to pacify the creepy things who have his son. The creepy things only want children's teeth and drag the painter down the hole. Then to the future as a young girl, Sally (Bailee Madison), is going to live with her father, Alex (Guy Pierce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes). Alex is an architect and is fixing up the home of the painter and Kim is the interior designer. Sally doesn't want to be there and doesn't really like Kim. As Sally is exploring the house, she finds that there is a hidden basement that turns out to be the workshop of Blackwood. In the basement is a chimney and Sally hears her name whispered through it by things. Well she opens it which unknowingly realises the creepy things. But the creepy things start creating mischief. Alex blames a lot of it on Sally, but Kim wants to connect with Sally and tries to get her to talk. Well it sort of works and Alex gets a psychologist to talk to Sally. Sally tells the psychologist that there are creatures in the house that are doing all the things Kim starts to believe her. Well Kim does research to find out what is going on with the house so the creepy things don't take Sally.
This movie was really good and creepy and not retarded like the old one. In this movie, people aren't helpless and retarded against the creepy things, but the creepy things are faster and clever and take out people. This movie is rated R for violence and terror (as you can expect from a Del Tor movie). The violence comes from the creepy things cutting up and and practically killing a carpenter and from Kim's leg being broken the wrong way (which you see for an instance and it's gross). So not a little children's movie in the aspect. Still a must see if you like horror movie and stuff like this.

Paradise Lost (2012)

This looks super cool. There is no release date yet because it is in pre-production.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1658817/
I have read most of this book so I guess before I see this movie, I will have to finish the book. But this is like the cool lore that I like, angels and stuff. I read the Fallen series, which is awesome.
Well anyways, Lucifer is played by Bradley Cooper. That is pretty cool. And Michael is played by Benjamin Walker.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2/17/2012)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi1461558297

Really? Was the first one that good that they decided they could make another Ghost Rider?
This is a trailer for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance "As Johnny Blaze hides out in Eastern Europe, he is called upon to stop the devil, who is trying to take human form" (imdb.com).
Whatever.

New Fright Night Way Better Than Original

The new Fright Night was really good. The stars, Colin Ferrel and Anton Yelchin, did really well and made the movie. I didn't like the original Fright Night at all and had some doubts going into this movie, but in the end, I really liked this movie. The movie was rated R for swearing and for gore. The movie is also available in 3D and the gore sprays everywhere for 3D.
The movie is about a boy named Charley Brewster (Yelchin) who lives with his mom (Toni Collette) in Las Vegas and has a new girlfriend, Amy (Imogen Poots). Charley gets a new neighbor at the same time lots of people start disappearing. His new neighbor is the slick, cool Jerry (Ferrel) who works on the strip so he works at night and sleeps all day. Charley's old friend, Ed (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) believes that Jerry is a vampire and tries to convince Charley that his neighbor is a vampire and killed their other friend, but Charley doesn't believe him. As Ed is going home, Jerry shows up and turns Ed into a vampire. After Ed's disappearance, Charley starts to believe and starts to test out so things about vampires on Jerry. Charley checks out the local vampire expert, Peter Vincent (David Tennant). Peter is a fake and so Charley has to fight Jerry alone.
Check this movie out!

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (6/22/2012)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1611224/

This sounds freaking hilarious. Our 16th president is really a vampire hunter and the real reasons that he abolished slavery was to rid the world of the vampire helpers. Freaking hilarious.

The Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Freaking Awesome

Holy freaking crap! That is all I really have to say about this movie. The Rise of the Planet of the Apes was soooo good and the graphics were so good that I forgot that these apes weren't real. This movie was a remake of a combination of the third and fourth old movies, but mostly the fourth one. And this movie had little things that made it fit into the other movies like the spacecraft going into space and getting lost (which is the spacecraft that lands on the planet in the original one). I loved this movie and if you are a fan of the old ones, you will love this and if you aren't a fan, you will still love it.
The movie starts out with people capturing apes out in the jungle. It then goes to San Fransisco at a genetic engineering company were Will Rodman (James Franco) works. Will is engineering a virus that can restore damaged brains. He tests it on apes/chimpanzees and one of his apes had done really well, but when they try to show the ape to sponsors, she goes crazy and gets put down. They later learn that the reason why she went crazy is because she was trying to protect her baby. The manager of the company has ordered all the apes put down but no one has the heart to put down the baby. Will decides to take the baby chimp home. At home, Will's father (John Lithgow) is suffering from altimers disease and he names the baby Ceaser. After a couple of days, Will notices that Ceaser is crazy smart and the virus has been passed genetically but when there is no brain damage, the virus increases intelligence.
This movie was so awesome, not like to lame 2001 remake (the remake was okay cause of Mark Wahlberg). You have to see this movie. It was super awesome and it all fit stuff together. Oh and if you are a Harry Potter fan and are on the fence about see it, Tom Felton is in this movie. Or if you are a Lord of the Rings fan, Andy Serkis (Gollum) is Ceasar. And James Franco is in it and he is hot.

Cowboys and Aliens, A Pretty Cool Mix

Cowboys and Aliens, who would have thought that they would have been a good mix for a movie. This movie is full of action, mystery, a little romance, but mostly action. I can't really think of any gripes I had with this movie.
The movie starts out with Jake (Daniel Craige) waking up in the desert not remembering anything. All he had is his clothes, a mysterious metal bracelet, a cut in his side, and a picture of a woman. Some guys come riding up and try to rob him, but he kicks their butts and takes their stuff, including a dog. He rides into town and meets Ella (Oliva Wilde). In the town, some kid, Percy (Paul Dano) is making trouble because the his dad is Woodrow Dolahyde (Harrison Ford) who pretty much funds the town. Well the kid gets in trouble and put in jail. The sherrif then notices Jake and puts him in jail because he is a wanted man. Well Woodrow hears that his son is in jail and so is Jake. Woodrow wants Jake because Jake robbed him. When Woodrow gets there, the aliens ships come and start taking people. The only weapon that is effective against the alien ships is the bracelet that Jake has. The people of the town band together to go out and get their missing people. That is where all the adventure starts.
This movie was good and you actually get to see the aliens. The aliens look like lizard frogs, which is kind of cool. The movie does has some interesting twists, too. I can't tell you because that would ruin them, but everyone should go out and see it anyways. I actually liked it. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. :)

YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIPS!!!

Guess what? I totally heard about this and didn't think that it was real. Well guess what? It totally is.
They are making a movie based of the classic game Battleship.
The movie is called Battleship and its about aliens. It sounds so freaking sweet and they posted the first trailer.

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi1053203481/

The movie is slotted to come out May 18, 2012. It looks pretty cool and I was laughing during the whole trailer (cause I'm really tired right now). The main guy in it (Taylor Kitsch) is the same guy from The Covenant and Wolverine (he was Gambit in Wolverine). I know that will excite a lot of girls (not me so much cause I'm still pretty hung up on Jeremy Renner).

Paranormal Activity 3 (10/21)

More pee your pants action!!
http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2128124953/
The first trailer for the new Paranormal Activity movie. I might pee my pants in fright right now. Jk.
This movie is going to be another prequel the first one and a prequel to the second one which was a prequel. This one will be about what happened when the girls where younger that was talked about all the time in the first two movies. Super scary. I don't think I will go see this one at night. Maybe really early in the day so I can come out of the theater in the daylight and not have to go right to sleep afterwards. :)

The Avengers (5/4/2012)

Way super excited, especially after seeing this!

HOLY FREAKING HOT!!!!!! Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye!

Captain America: The First Avenger, A Good Step to Avengers

Captain America: The First Avenger was really actually good. There was a bunch of action and awesomeness and hot guys (Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan). This movie really starts to tie the whole Avengers together, which is really cool because it is the final movie until The Avengers.

The movie starts out in the present day in the Artic. People have found a huge ship and don't know where it came from. Some of them go inside and when inside they uncover something in the ice and when you see it, it is the shield that belongs to Cpt. America. The movie then goes to 1945 in Norway. People are trying to protect something, but the bad guy, Johann Schmidt/Red Skull (Hugo Weaving) takes it. The object is a power cube from the god, Odin (Thor's father). The movie then moves to a recruiting office where you meet Steve Rogers (Evans) he gets rejected from serving in the army. He keeps trying and can't ever get in because he is too small. His friend, Bucky (Stan) has made it in and tells Rogers that he is leaving the next day and that Steve shouldn't serve. Well someone overhears this exchange and he is Dr. Abraham Erskine (Stanley Tucci). The doctor then lets Steve get into the army and chooses him for a special mission. The mission is to create a super solider with some serum the doctor created and some help from Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), Tony Stark's dad. The experiment works and Steve is taller, stronger, and more fit. Unfortunately, Schmidt wants the serum and sends an agent to take it. The agent doesn't get the serum but the doctor is killed in the attempt.
That is all I'm going to tell you cause I want you to go and see the movie for yourself and not spoil any of it for you. This movie was really good and I liked it. There was a lot more fighting in this one and it was pretty exciting. Oh and there is an extra clip at the end of the credits and it is pretty much a trailer for the Avengers movie!!! It was super awesome and I'm really excited. Avengers comes out May 4.

Teaser Trailer For The Amazing Spiderman (7/3/2012)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2647890969/

This is a teaser trailer for The Amazing Spiderman movie. This looks like it could be pretty good except for the end of the teaser trailer where it is first person shooter shot where he is jumping around looks totally fake. Just like a video game. I guess we will have to wait and see for another trailer.

First Trailers For The Dark Knight Rises (7/20/2012) and The Thing (10/14)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3119422489/ Batman

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2985204761/ Thing

Here is the first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises which is now filming and wont be out until July of next year. The Thing comes out in October and looks super awesome.

You heard it here first!

Original Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Extremely creepy things!!!! I watched the original Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, the made-for-tv movie from 1973. This movie scared my mom and aunts back in the day when they were younger. This movie was soooo dumb, but funny to laugh at. The whole time I would yell in an obnoxious voice, "Extremely creepy things (insert action of the extremely creepy things)!" I would yell things like, "Extremely creepy things turned off the light!" The acting and the storyline were so dumb.
Extremely creepy thing!!!
Sally (Kim Darby) and Alex (Jim Hutton) inherit an old house and Sally finds a room that has a fireplace in it. She wants the fireplace unblocked, but the old carpenter man says not to and gives a sort of warning against it. Well Sally pretty much says suck it and unbolts the ash vent to look into the fireplace to see if she can unblock it. That unleashes the extremely creepy things. Well Sally is the only one who can see the creepy things and no one believes her about them.
Well in the movie the creepy things turn out the light while she is taking a shower and she doesn't notice the light is off. She finally hears them whispering about killing her and she finally looks around. Well she turns on the light and sees a shaving razor on the floor where the creepy things had it. So she turns off the light and the creepy things come out and all she does is turn on the light and they run away. I can't believe she didn't freaking mortal combat on those mothers. If that was me, I would be like, "Hello six inch extremely creepy thing. Meet my size 10 shoe!" I would go Jason Elam and 63 yard field goal those things (which is the longest field goal kicked and he did it when he was with the Broncos!).
At the end of the movie, the creepy things drug Sally and she can't really fight them. They tie her up and drag her to the fireplace and pull her down. During this time, her friend gets locked out by the creepy things and she can't get in, which is stupid. Just throw a rock through the window and you are golden.
 
Creepy things with rope to tie you up.
Man, if I had these things in my house, I would totally have a hammer or a knife or even a brick and show these suckers whose house it is (MINE!).

Peek a boo!
Well the new one comes out August 26 and I'm pretty excited to see it. Maybe this one will be actually scary (which it probably will be because it is a Guillermo Del Toro movie).

New Favorite Song

Point of Know Return by Kansas. This song has been in my head forever. I also found a really funny music video for the song.

Contagion (9/9)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3924270105/

First trailer for the movie Contagion. This looks pretty freaky. The movie was originally sloted to come out October 21, but it has been movied to September 9, the same weekend as the movie Warrior. "An action-thriller centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the outbreak" (imdb.com).

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3605306393/

11-11-11 (11/11)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2968820761/

This is a movie called 11-11-11 and it looks pretty freaky. "A horror-thriller set on 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month and concerning a entity from another world that enters the earthly realm through Heaven's 11th gate" (imdb.com).


Creepy!!!

Horrible Bosses, Pretty Funny

Horrible Bosses is a pretty funny movie. Each of the main characters, Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day), and Kurt (Jason Sudekis), hate their boss. Nick's boss, Dave (Kevin Spacey), is a dick. Dale's boss, Julia (Jennifer Aniston), tries to get Dale to have sex with her. Kurt's boss, Bobby (Colin Farrell), is a giant tool. After a night of drinking, they decide that they want to kill their boss. They try to hire MotherF***** Jones (Jamie Foxx) to kill their bosses but he tells them to kill each others bosses. They have to gather intel on their marks and find out how to kill them and make it look like an accident. The guys get into a lot of trouble and funny things happen because of it.
This movie was freaking hilarious but a little dirty. The movie is rated R mainly for swearing but there is some sex references and stuff. There is a suprise ending, a twist that wasn't expected. If you can take the swearing, go see this movie!

Transformers 3, AWESOME!!!


Transfromers: Dark of the Moon is freaking awesome! There was action, violence, explosions, lots of humor, and Star Trek references. The Star Trek references are there because Leonard Nimoy was the voice for Sentinel Prime. The movie starts out by showing an Autobot ship escaping from Cybertron, but damaged. Then it goes to 1961 and the start of the space race. When the Apollo crew lands on the moon, they are there to investigate the crash of the Autobot ship. Then flash to the present. Sam (Shia LaBouf) has just graduated and is looking for a job. His new girlfriend, Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), is living with him and his parents are coming into town to see him. Sam manages to get a job at a company called Accutech. Mean while, the Autobots are investigating about a piece of the fallen ship at Chernobyl. That is when the Autobots find out about the ship and go to the moon. There they find the fallen ship and Sentinel Prime. I don't what to give away too much of the movie cause it might ruin the secrets.
This movie was super cool and there are some secrets that I don't want to tell you. So you will have to just go see the movie for yourself. People said this movie got bad reviews, but those people who gave it bad reviews can suck it cause what are you going to expect about this movie. All the movie is is robot and explosions and that is what you get in this movie. And Josh Duhamel was really hot in this movie (see picture).
Go see this movie!!!!!

Bad Teacher Movie, Funny

The movie Bad Teacher is pretty funny, but I didn't know it was rated R until the movie was going. The movie was funny and the acting was pretty good. The movie is about a gold digging woman, Elizabeth Halsey (Cameron Diaz), who only started teaching to do something while she was going to quit to marry a rich dude. Well the rich dude broke it off because he realized that she was just a gold digger. So she had to go back to being a teacher to have money. When she goes back, a crazy teacher, Amy Squirrel (Lucy Punch), really likes her and wants to be friends. Well Elizabeth doesn't want to be friends with anyone and wants a rich man to marry so she doesn't have to work. Well the new sub, Scott Delacorte (Justin Timberlake), is rich and Elizabeth wants to get with him, but she decides that she needs to get new breast. Unfortunately, the surgery is really expensive and Elizabeth decides that she is going to do anything to get the money. Well the school gives a bonus to the teacher whose students do the best on a test so she decides to actually start teaching and do other things to make sure she wins.
The movie was really funny but anyone who is against rated R movies should not go see it. The movie was funny and I actually laughed. Totally go see it.

Green Lantern, Pretty Good

The Green Lantern was pretty good. There was action and storyline and a hot dude. There wasn't as much action and fighting as I would have liked, but whatever.
The movie starts off by telling the story of how Abin Sur beat Parallax and then it shows how Parallax gets out. It then shows Hal Jordan (Ryan Renyolds) who is a test pilot who likes to shirk responsibility. At the start, Hal is flying to test out new unmaned drones and while he does this, he gets scared and starts thinking about the past, when his dad died testing a plane. Well in space, Abin Sur trys to beat Parallax, but wounds him. So Abin Sur goes to Earth to find the new Lantern for the Green Lantern Corp. The ring chooses Hal and takes him to the Green Lantern Corps home planet, where he learns to use the ring. Hal doesn't want the responsibility and tells the Green Lanterns no. Well the government finds Abin Sur's body and calls in a zenobiologist, Hector. Well Hector gets infected by the junk that Parallax used to kill Abin Sur. This draws Parallax to Earth and Hal has to fight Parallax.
This movie is good for people who like comicbooks and superheroes. If that is your style, then see the movie. There is even some romance and shiz in the movie too for all the girls, and also a hot dude for the girls. The movie is rated PG-13 for some violence and some mild language. This movie wasn't super great but still something to see.

Super 8: I Finally Get It

I finally understand the trailers and the mystery of the movie Super 8. The movie was actually pretty good, too. This is a movie that you should go to if you like "monster" movies. "After witnessing a mysterious train crash, a group of friends in the summer of 1979 begin noticing strange happenings going around in their small town, and begin to investigate into the creepy phenomenon" (imdb.com).
At the start of the movie, the main character, Joe (Joel Courtney) is at the funeral of his mother. The story then jumps to four months later at the start of summer vacation. Joe and his friends a filming a zombie movie and they as a girl from school, Alice (Elle Fanning), to help them. They go to film at a train station at midnight. While filming, a truck runs into the train and crashes it. The air force owns the train and is all over the town. No one knows what is happening. Joe's dad, Jackson (Kyle Chandler), is the town deputy and is trying to uncover the mystery of disappearances of people, pets, and anything electronic.
The movie covers up what the creature is and then after about 45 min, they finally revile what it is and you get a full on look at it (not like stupid movies like Cloverfield where you don't see practically any of the monster). They explain most of the questions and it all looks pretty good. The movie has little teenage love and family drama and tension and stuff. It was really good and one of the parts almost made me want to cry. It was good and I say go see it. The movie is rated PG-13 for action violence, a little gore, some drugs, there is a little profanity (I heard the f-word once but supposedly it was dropped twice, the s-word and other mild profanes), and the "monster" is a little scary. When I was at the movie, there were some little kids there, but I wouldn't recommend kids under like 10.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (8/5) Trailer

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi1615502617/
A new trailer for the movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes and it looks super sweet. I love all the really old Planet of the Apes movie (there is 5 old ones) and the remake in 2000 with Mark Walhberg was okay. This movie looks super sweet!!! I'm am pretty excited.

X-Men: First Class, Good Movie

X-Men: First Class is a good movie. If you like X-Men, you will like this movie cause it kind of shows how things got started. There was action, adventure, some comedy, and awesomeness. The only sucky thing was that there wasn't an extra clip at the end of the credits. :( So don't stay after the credits.
The movie starts out showing when Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Charles/Professor X (James McAvoy) are young in 1944. Erik is in a Nazi concentration camp where Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon) is working on genes and mutants. Charles is in his house and finds young Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawerence) who is trying to steal food. Charles tells her she can live with him and so she kind of becomes his sister. The movie then flashes to the 1960's. Erik is looking for revenge against Shaw and Charles is going to become a professor of genetics. Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne) is trying to investigate mutants and seeks out the help of Charles. Charles and Raven go with Moira to the CIA where they meet people who are helping mutants and they meet Hank McCoy/Beast. There they recruit more mutants to their team. They find out that Shaw is trying to start a new world war and they have to stop him.
This movie was pretty sweet action. The story is different from the comics, but unless you are a comic book nerd, I don't think you will mind because the movie is pretty darn cool. I might be seeing it again tonight. :) I recommend that you go to the movie if you like superheroes and X-Men and stuff like that. Once again though, there is no extra clip at the end and Stan Lee isn't in this movie.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Trailer (8/26)

Ahhh! Looks so scary! I want to see it. This movie was suppose to come out in January but it have been pushed back until August. Oh well, I will see it eventually. This movie is about a girl who goes to live with her dad in a new house and there are creepy things in the house that want the girl. This movie is based off a made for tv movie by the same title. I am going to find the original one and watch it. :)

Bored+No Work=See Source Code

Today on this Memorial Day, I got bored and decided to go see the movie Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal that came out on April 1. This movie was surprisingly better than I expected.
The movie is about a solider, Colter (Gyllenhaal), who mysteriously wakes up on a train with a girl he doesn't know and when he looks into the mirror, he sees he is someone else. He tries to figure out what is going on, when the trail blows up. He then wakes up in a capsule where he is told that he is in a program that recalls the last 8 minutes of someone's memory. His mission is to find who the bomber is before that person blows up most of Chicago.
This movie was actually pretty good and a lot better than I expected it to be. From what I saw in the trailer, I was expecting a movie about a guy who tries to save someone who is already dead, but that was just a small part at the beginning before he really understood what was going on. I really did enjoy the movie and if you haven't seen it yet, go and see it before it is out of theaters. Another good thing is that the movie is rated PG-13, so better for more audiences.

Take Shelter (10/7)

The movie is about a guy who is having visions of an apocalypse and he decides to build a shelter for his family, but his friends and family think he has gone crazy. This movie comes out on October 7 and would be interesting to see.
Check it out.

The Change Up (8/5)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi1232313625/
I just wanted to share this trailer for the movie The Change Up because it looks so funny. This movie is about two guys who change bodies. Dave (Jason Bateman) has a wife and two babies and his friend, Mitch (Ryan Renyolds), is a single guy who gets all the ladies. This just looks really funny and reminds me of an episode of the tv show Two Guys and a Girl, Ryan Renyolds is in. In one of the Halloween episodes, Ryan's character gets his brain switched with one of the guy characters and it is really funny. I would put up a clip of that, but youtube pulled all the videos with that show. Too bad. Well enjoy the trailer.

Now I Have to Think of Something

So I just read the most awesome blog post ever. http://procrastinatinginsomniac.blogspot.com/2011/05/radiant-dawn-cast.html (You should all read it)
Well I think this is clever and amazing and it is something I sometimes think about. Well now that my friend has made this I want to do something like it, but I don't know what. I could maybe do a book, but most of the books I read are already movies or tv shows. Maybe I could do it on the Dragonlance books, but there are a billion characters in those books. Well I don't know, maybe I could pick one book and do those characters. Well, you should check out that post and the hot guys suggested because they are hot. Haha. Well, c'ya.

Bridesmaids: Not That Good

I saw Bridesmaids today and I was sorely disappointed. This movie boasted good reviews and promised big laughs, but I just didn't get it. I thought it was dry and dirty. The f-word was dropped every couple of minutes and lots of sex scenes (no wonder why it was rated R). I wouldn't recommend that people pay a lot to go see it.
The movie is about a woman, Annie (Kristen Wigg) who is down on her luck and her best friend, Lillian (Maya Rudolph) is going to get married. Annie has been made the maid of honor, but when she meets Lillian's new best friend, Helen (Rose Byrne) she has to compete with this woman who has it all. Helen is rich, married, pretty, and has the everything that Annie wants. While trying to be better than Helen, Annie messes everything up and almost ruins her relationship with Lillian. Along the way, Annie mets a nice cop and kind of falls in love with him.
I thought this movie would be better and after reading the reviews for it, I was very dissapointed and kind of grossed out in the movie. I only laughed at about 5 of the really funny parts, but most of the time I was kind of bored. The rest of the audience didn't laugh either, so I don't think I was so alone in my opinion.
Though I did see a funny trailer for a movie called What's Your Number? with Anna Faris and Chris Evans that looks pretty funny. It comes out Sept. 30. I will post the trailer for that movie. Chris Evans is pretty hot and he is going to be in Captain America soon, so go see that too.

Another Real Steel Trailer (10/7)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3446840601/

This is another trailer for the Real Steel Movie with Huge Jackman. "A future-set story where robot boxing is a top sport and centered on a struggling promoter (Jackman) who thinks he's found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he also discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father" (imdb.com)
This trailer looks even cooler than the first one. Comment below on if you are going to see this.

The link to the news article on imdb.com is above. The movie is called Turkey Bowl and it is about an annual football game where two football obsessed guys are going to duel it out. So super excited. :)

Priest Movie: Good But Not What Expected

Just saw Priest and it was good, but not what I had expected. The movie is based of a graphic novel by Min-Hoo Hyung. The movie is about a world with humans and vampires where the humans had to have warriors strong enough to fight the vampires. To fight the vampires, the church recruits people with extraordinary strength and powers. After the war, the remaining vampires were put in reservations under strict watch and all the priest were disbanded and reintegrated into society. Priest (Paul Bettany) is having a hard time in society and the church has told him that he has to stay in his place. Well out in the wastelands, Priest's brother and family are attacked by vampires and his niece is kidnapped, his brother near death and his wife killed. Hicks (Cam Gigandet), is sent to the city to get Priest, but the church tells Priest that there is no vampire enemy and he is forbidden to leave the city. Priest leaves the city anyways and goes to see his brother. His brother tells him what happened and then he dies. The church orders 4 more priests, including Maggie Q, to go after Priest and bring him back. Hicks and Priest go to a vampire hive to see if there are any vampires there. At the hive, Priestess (Maggie Q) catches up with Hick and Priest and joins them. At the hive, they learn that the vampires have bred a new army. They have to find a way to to stop the vampires before they get to the cities.
After watching the trailer, I expected a lot more vampire fights but there was still a lot of fighting and explosions and action. I did enjoy the movie and any action movie going person will enjoy it and should go see it. :) Besides there are hot guys in it, Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, and Karl Urban.
 Karl Urban as Black Hat
 Paul Bettany as Priest
 Cam Gigandet as Hicks

Thor

Yesterday, I came home from school for the summer and I went and saw Thor. Thor was okay, not what I expected. I think it was kind of made as just another step to the Avengers movie. There wasn't as much fighting and action and the trailers portrayed. There was a cool part where they did show another Avenger, Hawkeye (played by my favorite, Jeremy Renner).
The movie starts out kind of in the middle where they humans first meet Thor. A astrophysicist (Portman) and her team is tracking storms and sees the rainbow bridge that is transporting Thor (Chris Hemsworth, hottie) to Earth. They drive over to it and accidentially hit Thor. The movie then starts at the "beginning". Thor and his brother, Loki, are being told the story of how their dad defeated the frost giants. Then the movie goes years down the road to were Thor is going to be crowned king of Asgard, but during the ceremony, frost giants get into the weapons vault to get a weapon back. Thor wants to go to their planet and start a war. This action makes the current king, Odin, think that he is not really to rule Asgard. Well Thor is pissed and goes to the frost planet and starts fighting. Odin comes and saves them and for his foolishness, banishes Thor to Earth. Then the movie comes back to the where it started. Then other things happen.
The movie was okay and just makes me more excited for the Avengers movie next year!!!!!! The movie felt slow and there wasn't as much as the trailer promised. Oh well. I still say go and see it if you are a Marvel fan and are waiting to see the next 2 movies, Captain America and Avengers. And of course, like all Marvel movies, there is an extra clip at the end of the credits. So go and see and make sure to stay to the very end.

Fast Five! Freak Yeah

I just saw Fast Five and that movie was so freakin chill!!!! Oh my gosh I was freaking out. There was explosions, fights, gun fights, cars, things breaking, comedy, and tons of awesomeness. I think this one is better than all of them. YOU HAVE TO GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!

The movie starts out where the last one left off. Brian (Walker) and Mia (Brewster) get Dom (Diesel) off the prison bus and they run, this makes them wanted by the FBI. You next see Brian and Mia in Brazil looking for Vince (from the first movie). He gives them shelter and you learn that Mia is pregnant, but nobody knows. Vince tells Brian that they can pull and easy job because Brian has no money. They get on a train and boost some cars and Dom shows up. While they are getting the cars, DEA agents get shot by the other guys helping. The other guys are working for the dude who pretty much owns Brazil, Reyes. The shooting gets blamed on Brian and Dom. So the FBI sends in some bounty hunters lead by Hobbs (The Rock). So now they have to hid from Reyes and Hobbs. Dom decides that they need to get out and to do so, they are going to rob Reyes of his 100 million dollars in his safehouses and buy their freedom. To do so, they need to call in a team and they pull characters from the first three movies. All awesomeness follows.

This movie as sooo freakin awesome!!! I was laughing at all the funny parts and freakin out when they were getting into cars and cheering and all sorts of stuff. Totally freaking out. Paul Walker was so freakin hot, too (when is he not). This movie was highly rated and I would have to agree. I say that this is the best one of the Fast and Furious movies. So everyone go and see it!!!
AND STAY UNTIL AFTER THE CREDITS BECAUSE THERE IS MORE!!!!!!

30 Minutes or Less (8/12)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi387226905/
Hahaha. I just watched this really funny trailer for a movie called 30 Minutes or Less.
"Two fledgling criminals kidnap a pizza delivery driver and force him to rob a bank within 30 minutes" (imdb.com). This movie has Jessie Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari, and Nick Swardson. The trailer looks freakin hilarious and everyone should share it. :)

New X-Men: First Class Trailer (6/3)

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi168926489/

This trailer shows the other mutants in the first class more than the other trailer. I think this is better because the movie is not all about Xavier and Magneto (well to an extent). I am still pretty stoked. :)
