Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Rating: ★★★★★

 

I don't remember a time when I enjoyed a movie as much as I did this one. From beginning to end it was by far one of the better Marvel movies  made to date.  Two things it had in its favor it was a high quality movie and second Disney did not stand in the way of this production leaving it as a Marvel feature. Which if you are a comic movie fan like I am bodes well for future productions. The movie itself ranked in the number one spot for a couple of weeks and remains a draw even now. The characters and actors playing them fit well together. I saw no flaws in the chemistry. CG's are what you expect from a Marvel / Disney production and even better in 3D. The script well it was not meant to be taking all that seriously but you can see that they kept a strong link to the Marvel Universe. You will or have seen characters that will in future Avengers or spin off character movies ( Capt America , Thor etc... ) will cross over leaving the question will there be a movie that is going to encapsulate all the worlds like they have done so many times before in comic book forms. Well I won't spend to much more time on my critique of the movie. Not much more to say then it was awesome . 5 stars flat out awesome. In other words "I AM GROOT".
Only one warning even though for the most part this is a family movie the language is strong enough to warrant a little precaution for little ones. Other then that its a must see for fans.

Rating: ★★★★½

 

One of the more enjoyable films of the year. Dreamwork's nailed this one. The story was heartfelt and warm even though there was a plot twist of a major character dying (Hiccups dad Stoick) which I did not see coming and had my little one grabbing me in tears. However there were also many enjoyable highlights like Hiccup seeing finding his mother was still alive and getting to know her along with some pretty great CG animated scenes which worked well in the 3D format.

Godzilla 2014 Review

Rating: ★★★★☆

What can I say the King of all Monsters is back in this epic movie. It was all that one could hope for in a big budge monster movie . There was Godzilla himself , buildings smashing , a rumble in San Francisco between heavy weights and people running. And there was even a decent story they led somewhere. The Americans for the most part got it right this time. It was good balance of plot suspense and fantasy. They even got the nuclear fire right . Kind of gave me goose bumps similar to that geeky feeling I got when I saw the Transformers for the first time and Optimus transformed. Yea I know sound nerdy but it was awesome.
There was some minor nit picking I could do. And now I will. The characters were some what lack lustered. Flat if you will. They could do with some little quick one liners or site gags to living things up as long as they kept it in the script and not just throw it in there like the 1998 version did. And the big guy himself could of been a little more in the film then he was. Not to much more. I think it was smart to make the story play out and not have it all about monster smash around. Some Godzilla films it gets to much of the big guy and they strive to keep the plot going. They end up fragmenting and going into this spiral of what you can tell is on the spot directors add ons. This one pretty much did not. It kept my attention and was really well done. It was a feast for the eyes .

Star Trek Into Darkness Review

18 May 2013

Rating: ★★★★★

When I go into a movie and sit down and get blown away from the opening scene till the end of the movie and leave with only being disappointed because it ended then I know I have seen something that will be a block buster and go down in the books as one of the greatest films ever. Star Trek Into Darkness was one of these films and without any exaggerations I would dare to say the best in franchise history. Not only was it great it was clever on how they played on the alternate universe both separating this version of Star Trek as distinctly different and at the same time being honest and truthful to the spirit of the original . Honestly I cannot find flaw in this one. Even with the recreation of Khans character which I usually cant stand. But JJ Abrahams and the writers have to be commended on their interpretation. The movie itself was a work of art visually and full of action that would excite even the non-trekies. The story arc was clever and full of poignant moments that brought a soul to the film. Especially the play on Kirks and Spocks characters. All in all this fill got five stars and if I could would give it more. It is so far the must see movie of the year. Other films would be hard press to out do this one.
