"The Grey" (2012)- Review

Image
The very first 15 minutes of the movie was so slow & boring as heck....but once the plane crashed-it's ON! There are literally NO words to describe how those blood-thirsty wolves were making me jump in my seat in the theater! It is always simple for me to complain that a movie is NOT scary enough or it could have been less predictable. This film was the OPPOSITE of that! I was on the edge of my seat the ENTIRE movie! I could NEVER tell when the wolves were going to attack or kill someone. I tried to prepare myself in some scenes because I thought the moment would come, but didn't-and when I did not; it did! Lol! I LOVE & APPRECIATE movies like this because it is very suspenseful & not predictable at all because some of the things that happened, I truly did not see coming & the killing was not gory killing, so no worries if you thought you would see limbs being torn apart & such-they kept it very minimal where that is concerned. The ending, I HAT…

"One For The Money" (2012)- Review

I felt like this film was a repeat of "The Bounty Hunter" with Aniston & Butler, but in this film Heigl was going after more than 1 person. Lionsgate tends to distribute movies that basically are on the borderline of sucking. The movie did NOT suck, but at the same time, it did not appeal to me as I thought it would. I didn't read the book, so I cannot say if the film deviated or what, but there were funny scenes & the Grandma-oh, now she made me laugh right out loud. Heigl made me LOL as well, but everyone did an average job. If I had the option to see this at a screening or cheaper, I would have taken either of those choices! Shepherd did an outstanding job for her role! Acting like a ghetto hood-rat is her dream role! Lol! She plays it all too good! All in all, it was a cute film with laughs-not great laughs-but laughs nonetheless....

"Man on a Ledge" (2012)- Review

This movie was not sensational-some of the manipulations, tactics, and jokes were, though! This film overall was pretty enjoyable, but did not have a ton of suspense & adrenaline-pumping scenes as I expected from the previews that were shown. There were very funny moments where certain characters made quips or jokes that kept the audience chuckling & there were a lot of people that were lied to, mistrusted, & deceived along with the first sentence in this rating & all those characteristics made this film very interesting & enjoyable. I was in the edge of my seat in ONE scene because I did not know if the main character was going to jump or not! I think that the older guy in the crowd was funny as hell shouting & carrying on! Lol! See this movie, it will take you to heights you never thought a person would or could go to "free themselves." The ending of the movie, EVERYTHING falls into place if you could not figure it out in time.....

"Haywire" (2012)- Review

This movie was a combination of Mr. & Mrs. Smith plus Duplicity and those two movies are the equivalent to this one. The movie had a very good storyline-I cannot deny that, and I have never heard of this actress before in my life, but to have that tough look and rough exterior about her, she should have been kicking butt and killing people more faster like Jet Li or any other female assassin I've seen in motion picture films! That was one of the major things that I saw about her character in the movie, she took too long fighting people to say that is what she was trained for -to take people out! The ending was not to be expected, but I can deal with it because it leaves itself open for a sequel-hopefully better than the first! HaHa! Overall, the movie had its ups and its downs, but it was okay. I cannot say it was good, cannot say it was great, cannot say it was average. I was NOT feeling this movie the way I thought that I might! Tatum had a very small part to play in the fil…

"Underworld: Awakening" in IMAX 3D (2012)- Review

Image
DYNAMITE film! It kind of was like a slow-going cartoon film & didn't look very realistic, but I still enjoyed it! I loved watching it in IMAX 3D! There were a lot of cool fighting & somewhat gory fighting scenes. Those lycans were scary & when they jumped directly at me-coming, literally off of the screen was nasty & just disgusting! I jumped a few times because it was very freaky! Lol! The way that it ended, a sequel will be made....more Selene is coming & Kate Beckinsale looked great in her tight leather outfit & she was a 100% badass and I liked her playing a role like this because it is rare! The movie had awesome killing, action, & mystery!

"Contraband" (2012)- Review

Really spectacular, but--I felt it could have had more action in the beginning rather than have all the action occur at the end! Besides that, the movie was great! I spotted myself 3 times throughout the film & it was totally awesome to see! The movie really had deep deceptions in it. You thought one thing, where it turns out opposite of what you thought initially. There were some funny parts; there were some gory killing scenes where the audience was making noises & remarks because of how close the bullets were getting shot into people on the screen! I think that this movie had the action, definitely had the suspense, was NOT predictable, & it kept you guessing & never had a dull moment! Awesome!

"Joyful Noise" (2012)- Review

Image
Words CANNOT express how sensational, captivating, enjoyable, mesmerizing, exquisite, & phenomenal this film was! KeKe Palmer was outstanding! Simply breathtaking! The way she sang, how she sung--oh my goodness! She captivated audiences! She gives a Perfect 10, 2 Thumbs Up, & an A+ performance! The ending scene reminded me so much of Sister Act 2! If you saw it, u would know exactly what I am referring to! I just cannot stop thinking about how this movie touched me! It is just mind-blowing! I've NEVER had a movie prick my heart like this & have a profound effect on me like this! All the scenes with Queen Latifah & Dolly Parton were very funny! This movie had light confrontation, love, forgiveness, amazing singing, & exceptional acting! A few scenes brought a tear to my eye! I will get this film the day it hits DVD! Wonderful, wonderful movie! Cannot express it enough! Praise that joyful noise because it was dynamite, explosive, & magnificent! Bravo!
