Monsters University Film Review

Monsters University Once again Pixar wakes up in the middle of the night, tip toes over towards the closet door, gently opens it and blindly jumps headfirst into the vibrant, boisterous and diverse World of Monsters. If you haven’t watched this film’s big brother, Monsters Inc. then I encourage you to do so, as it will give you a much greater understanding into the world of Monsters, and the lives of Mike and Sully.

“The Best Man Holiday” Surprises at the Box Office

When “Thor: Dark World” premiered, few people thought that any film had a chance of stopping its dominance at the box office except for maybe “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” Hollywood insiders hardly looked at the other films opening in theaters, which was clearly a mistake. “The Best Man Holiday” became a huge hit when it landed in theaters.

The Movie Review: Carrie Is Back!

Remaking a good old movie is big gamble. People will have a point of comparison. More often than not, like loyalty, people like the original better and always have something bad to say about the remake.

“THE BOOK THIEF” – A New Film Report

How many movies can a person see about how people felt about Hitler, The Nazis and the wide effect of World War II? Like Westerns, they come, and they go. But as long as these films touch us with some prime truths, there’s no reason to curtail them. Certainly, this film shares a wealth of emotions that a group of Germans endured as they suffered from the bane of Nazism.

Man of Steel

Like many, I eagerly awaited the release of Zach Snyder’s adaptation of Man of Steel. For months I had seen and been touched by the black and white trailers. The shadowy images of a cape draped boy bounding across the back yard, the haunting music increasing in volume as the pictures flicker on the screen until there is only a gray sky with a vapor trail as the man zooms through dark clouds towards the heavens.

White House Down House for Filming Resemblance

LA is a popular choice of filmmakers owing to the ambiance that this magnificent city reciprocates. People here are talented and with the architecture perfectly, it is rightfully called as the house for filming.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Movie Review

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” the highly anticipated sequel to 2012’s “The Hunger Games,” ignites the screen with action, romance, courage, deception, violence, and, of course, lots of fire. Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland, and most of the others from the first film reprise their roles of inhabitants in a futuristic war-ravaged North America.

“Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” Takes the Franchise Into Uncharted Territory

The original “Jackass” television show was largely unscripted, relying on stunts and the results of those stunts to get a reaction from viewers. “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa,” definitely has a plot, but it mixes the reactions of unsuspecting passersby with a fluid script to produce very unique and entertaining results. One of the characters Johnny Knoxville for the TV series is an octogenarian named Irving Zisman who acts like he is a good fifty years younger than he really is.

“Dallas Buyers Club” – A New Film Report

Imagine my surprise when I walked into a theatre at one thirty-five (p.m.) and had to look hard for a single seat to see “DALLAS BUYERS CLUB”. Wow! I had never seen this theatre so packed for a matinee showing of a film. As I settled down and the movie started, there was something that I didn’t like immediately. The pace hurried, and the dialogue seemed like handout scripts that never held the truth.

Last Vegas

Take Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline, add a pinch or two of a mediocre screenplay and mix. The result: Two hours of pure entertainment; filled with self deprecating humor by these giants of film facing the consequences of age.

Movie Review – 12 Years a Slave

12 years a slave, a movie by Steve Macqueen gives an account of how horrifying slavery was and recognizes how these people of the past are not that different from us. Doing evil is a choice humanity makes. The depiction of the movie centers on a true story to establish the turmoil of blacks during the slave period. The movie unfolds events that befell Solomon Northur, a man, his wife and family that were living in Saratoga, New York in 1814. This was a dangerous time for African-Americans because of runaway Africans who were required at the time, by law to be returned down South to their masters. Some entrepreneurs looked at this opportunity as a business venture and opted to kidnap free men and sell them off as slaves by claiming that the slaves were runaways. This kind of event was one on which Solomon befell and was transported down South, sold and subjected to all form of abuse and dehumanizing treatment for 12 years.

An English Rose Blooms Again: Movie Review of “Diana”

Oliver Hirschbiegel’s tribute to one of the world’s most beloved and well-known princesses does not even need to have the word “princess” in the title. The movie’s title is simple, intimate, and powerful. Perhaps this is a fitting way to introduce a biopic centering on a woman whose life was constantly awash in spotlights and flashbulbs.
