"Faster" (2010)- Review

Image
This was truly a low-budget film. It had a very good plot summary! Although the acting was very weak and not all that spectacular as I had hoped considering that "The Rock" was the main star. The movie poster for this film may look exciting, but trust me-it aint all of what you expect and a bunch of no-name actors star in the movie...Besides-Dwayne, Billy, and Maggie Grace, that is it! It did have some hardcore shooting and killing goryness to it, which is why I rated this movie 3 out of 5 just for the gore that I saw. There was a twist in the movie that I did not expect, but I most LIKELY missed it because it was kinda boring and I was trying to stay awake! LOL! Other than that, the movie was not all that great! I suggest that if you are wanting to see it-DON'T! The End!

"Love & Other Drugs" (2010)- Review

Image
This movie should have been called "Lust and More X-rated Sex!" Truthfully, they were showing the upper body parts to both the two main characters in the film and I was just in awe about that..I KNOW that in some films, sex sells and that skin is revealed, but in this movie-Jake and Anne really gave away all the goods! They were having sex everywhere and on any and everything! But, placing the sex aspect away, this is a role that I have never seen Hathaway portraying, though it had a ton of sex and sexual references in it-she played a very serious role with the occasional jokes-she did a dynamite job at acting like a woman with a disease with no possible cure. The ending was perfect and it touched me and I KNOW it touched a lot of other people. True, the majority of the film was funny and sexual, but the more it was ending, the more serious it became and it was inspiring what Gyenhaal said to Hathaway at the end when the bus pulled off at a rest stop...truthfully wheat they…

"Burlesque" (2010)- Review

Image
This was not the typical musical movie like Dreamgirls or Hairspray for the simple fact that the cast did NOT sing their lines and performed on a stage. In this movie, they performed on the stage and there were regular speaking lines. Cher did an outstanding performance and she made few jokes in the film as well to balance it all out. Aguilera really made a great debut into the film industry in doing this role. She really captured the audience because people in the theater were actually applauding her! Once again, the economy was placed in this movie in regards to Tess and her Burlesque Club. I tell you-the economic state is in crisis if it is in a damn musical film, eh? The dancing.....the style....the moves.....the romance....the drama....this was the best movie I could have picked to see Pre-Thanksgiving 2010! So get 'yo ass out there and see how you "Burlesque!" :)

"The Next Three Days" (2010)- Review

Image
First off, whomever did Bank's hair in the beginning of this movie, needs to be shot because it was revealed to me that she had on a wig on top of her brown hair because pieces of it was shown! Bad! Next, this movie was, what I thought to be action-packed from the previews and since it had Academy Award Winner, R. Crowe in it-I thought it would be good...boy was I incorrect.....I mean the plot was good, just maybe more pursuits and action was needed in order for me to give it a much better rating or maybe difference actors...the movie was weak and had a very slow and lacking "action." The last hour of it was the best, the car and high speed chases, the subway scene, the escape, the killing and getting shot parts.....that is what should've been shown throughout the entire film-in my opinion. I mean, yes, you can have dull parts through the entire movie-but even with some action & suspense that will keep the audience intrigued, at least. If you do not drift asleep-…

"Unstoppable" (2010)- Review

Image
This was a suspenseful movie & it was not predictable @ all...to me, at least...I thought that all the kids on the bus would die, and one of the two major characters Frank or Will would die and I was wrong on all 2 characters counts! It really was action-packed up until the end! Denzel Washington really made a few jokes during the film, but he was great in this movie! Denzel is the man and so was Chris Pine! They made a great team in the movie and for the making of the movie! :)

"Morning Glory" (2010)- Review

Image
To say that this movie was broadcasted quite frequently & had an well-known cast-it was very plain.....I mean the 50 Cent scene and a few other scenes were too funny while other parts made me just chuckle-it was not very good! The preview was better than the movie, to be perfectly honest! I thought after the funny scene towards the middle of the movie-it would get better, but it just stayed plain and just for elderly people!

"Due Date" (2010)- Review

Image
First off, they showed all of the good parts 4 this movie in the previews! NOT FAIR! Every time I recognized a part that I saw in the previews I started to laugh early! Lol! Zach G. made the movie.. Robert Downey Jr. was funny as well, but Zach G. made me laugh so damn hard, my eyes were red and on fire burning..it is amazing @ how the dumbest and simplest things people do in comedy movies can make you laugh hysterically! This movie was funny, but it was not funny as I thought it would be like when I saw "Grown Ups." But all in all-it was good..they had some crude/sexual humor, but it was shocking and yet funny @ the same time! See it! You'll love it!

"For Colored Girls" (2010)- Review

Image
Granted, this movie has some very deep and emotional and depressing parts, it is still a great movie! With an all-star cast! Loretta Devine will make you laugh...every scene that she is in-YOU SHALL LOL!! Tyler Perry did his thing when he made this movie! And it is made for both sexes, NOT just colored women or women in general. It shows how both colored men and women BEHAVE in today's society and the poems that the 7 women were sharing throughout the film was touching and it made me think and reflect on my own life in some ways. It shows how many stereotypical PEOPLE are in the world and how they accuse people of either being or acting a certain way because of their skin color. It is deep and really really good! I am glad that I saw this movie! Really glad! It will touch your heart, certain parts will make you laugh, and even more parts can make you REFLECT!
