The Fast & Furious franchise is back with its sixth entry, and whatever the series has done for you so far will most likely hold true for this one. [Read more...]
Whether you’re a fan of Transformers or Michael Bay, there is a strong likelihood that Transformers: A Tribute to Michael Bay will not disappoint you. However, if you are a fan of quality film making, then maybe it’s time to finally skip out on the Transformers series.
Okay, so most of you probably know that the title I gave in the intro isn’t really the name of the movie, but more on that later. Transformers: Dark of the Moon takes us back to the Apollo 11 moon landing, and as films sometimes do it tells a story that doesn’t quite stick to the history book version. Don’t worry, the Transformers don’t go kill Hitler or anything (yes I do realize Apollo 11 happened after WWII, but I am more than willing to go out of my way to reference Inglourious Basterds). Anyway, during the war on the alien planet Cybertron, home of the transformers, an escaping Autobot ship crashes into the Earth’s moon, spurring the space race on. Long story short decades pass, digging up the secrets buried surrounding the US trip to the moon. [Read more...]
With Fast Five following shortly after Scream 4, looks like higher numbered sequels that don’t have the name Harry Potter in the title aren’t necessarily something to dread anymore. It may not be time to start a list of the successes this year quite yet (hopefully once Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is released), but there is definitely reason to hope.
Fast Five compiles a plethora of characters from the previous entries of the films, bringing back some favorites, as well as some lesser known characters for those who tuned out once the series left the country, creating a team to support Dominic, Brian, and Mia with the ridiculous plot in Rio that involves being chased down by a glorified bounty hunter of sorts to bring them back to the states to pay for their crimes.
Before you write the film off for this plot alone, let’s do a little comparison to help explain it. If this movie were a cinematic vehicular race it would be the pod race from The Phantom Menace. [Read more...]
I sure hope the man upstairs is too busy going about his Godly chores to sit down and watch this movie, because if he does, Legion might just be reason enough to bring on the next apocalypse.
As the story goes, when God loses faith in mankind he catastrophically shakes his global Etch-A-Sketch to clear the world of humanity before starting again. Last time he sent a flood to wash away man’s mistakes; this time he must be uber angry because he is going to make it hurt. Sending his angels to do the dirty work, they infect a vast number of humans, turning them into violently demonic beings. Luckily enough for humanity, we have Michael on our side, an angel who falls to earth in order to join the fight and protect man (well, a pregnant girl who is carrying a very important baby).
