Is This The Best Movie This Summer?!

25 May 2010  3 Comments

While watching 24′s finale, I saw Inception trailer. It looks very promising, directed by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, The Prestige, Batman Begins, Memento) and starring Leonardo DiCaprio (Blood Diamond, The Departed, Gangs of New York…..).
I am really looking forward for this, I hope it doesn’t disappoint.
Inception should be released July 16h.

A Nightmare on Elm Street – Movie Review

24 May 2010  1 Comment

Death stalks the dreams of several young adults to claim its revenge on the killing of Freddy Kruger. Chased and chastised by this finger-bladed demon, it is the awakening of old memories and the denials of a past of retribution that spurns this hellish vision of a dreamlike state and turns death into a nightmare reality.

I’m not that big of a horror fan but I usually watch a few of them a year. Its really hard to to find a great horror movie and the are really hard to make in my opinion. The regualar horror movie fan will like it I think.

Russell Crowe walks out on a BBC Radio Interview

21 May 2010  2 Comments

Russell Crowe did a BBC radio interview last week with Mark Lawson to promote his new movie Robin Hood. In the interview the host comments that his accent in the movie sounded more Irish than English, which upset Crowe.

Lawson then continues to try to get under Crowe’s skin to elicitate an angrier response by asking about something that happened during the filming of Gladiator. Lawson then asked about a claim from a book that says Crowe didn’t want to say the line:

“And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.”

Crowe simply stands up and leave after that.

Robin Hood – Movie Review

19 May 2010  4 Comments

I really had high expectations for Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. I mean the last time he and Russell Crowe teamed up they did the Gladiator. So I thought this might be the biggest movie of the summer.

When you hear Robin Hood you automatically thing “Bow and Arrow” but thats not the case here. you can count the times Robin uses his bow and arrow in the movie, that ended up making the movie look more like “Brave Heart” than Robin Hood.

I still think its a good movie, I just had really high expectations and was a bit disappointed.

The Losers – Movie Review

This is another movie based on comics that I recommend people watch. Its about a group of CIA black ops team that gets betrayed by their handler and tries to terminate them after completing a mission. Well you know where it will go from there.

Its a good action movie and I really like Chris Evans (Fantastic Four).

Death at a Funeral – Movie Review

10 May 2010  1 Comment

This movie is a remake of a British movie that had the same name and was produced in 2007. Although Hollywood has a history of making American versions of foreign films, the original versions are usually in a language other than English.

The movie has an excellent cast: Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock, Luke Wilson and Danny Glover. But the strong cast don’t add much to the movie as it turned out to be average, some might find it very funny. I find the humor repetitive and childish at times.

I would still recommend watching it if you have some free time.
