How To Be A Latin Lover → Loved It!

Image
Film Synopsis: Finding himself dumped after 25 years of marriage, Maximo (Eugenio Derbez) who made a career out of seducing rich older women must move in with his estranged sister (Salma Hayek) where he quickly begins to learn the value of family.



What a great movie! I will say that I had my doubts about it. I was wavering back & fourth even though I loved all the clips and trailers that debuted online about it and when I saw the trailer in the movie theater, I laughed out loud every time, but still had doubts. 


I NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER listen to a word that movie critics write about movies because they bash each & every last film even if it is a box office blast success! With that little rant of mine out of the way-- I will say when I did see that it came in second place at the Box Office opening weekend, I was very pleased to buy a ticket and see it.



I have never laughed so hard at a movie since I cannot even recall. THE ENTIRE CAST WAS HILARIOUS! Starting with Maximo....he was…

Unforgettable → Tessa Is....The Actual Movie...Forgettable...

Film Synopsis: The ex-wife, Tessa (Katherine
Heigl) sets out to make life pure hell for David's, her ex-husband's (Geoff Stults) new and current wife, Julia (Rosario Dawson).


I have never seen Heigl in a role like this. I don't consider her role in Home Sweet Hell comparable to this except for the fact that she played an obsessive compulsive in both, but overall- no.....comparison...this film is a suspense/thriller while Home Sweet Hell was a comedy. See the difference? 


Towards the close of the movie, you can begin to understand why the movie is called "Unforgettable" because of the "memorable moments" that happen in the last 15-20 minutes of the film. The movie had very poor picture quality & I was very disappointed at the overall film seeing that I was super-stoked about it ever since I heard about it! 



You could see where Tessa's rage & her obsessive need to have things in order and to come off as more than strong stemmed from. It was like …

Fate of the Furious → Pure Perfection!

Film Synopsis: When a mysterious woman, Cipher (Charlize Theron) seduces Dom (Vin
Diesel) into the world of crime & a betrayal of those closest to him, the crew face trials that will test them as never seen before!


First, I will have to say that seeing this movie without Paul Walker was so dreadful, but I know that this one was made for him just because of the title. He was not referenced in the movie but once, but he is NOT forgotten! Moving on.......the one character that stood out and did one very outstanding job- that is the character of Cipher. 



Ever her name screams "horror, hacker, or something illegal." Charlize Theron played her role as the cyber-terrorist perfectly to a T! I was thoroughly & highly impressed at the way she dressed the part.....looked the part.....and ACTED in the part!



Dom & Lettty are the perfect match, but something more powerful than these 2 combined is what Cipher had to hold over Dom's head to make betray his team like he did. Wat…
