Predators – Movie Review

13 Jul 2010  4 Comments

Nothing spectacular got released last weekend, we wanted to watch Despicable Me but couldn’t find a proper time and so decided to go with Predators. I liked AVP so we thought this might be as good.

Whats different in this part is that the movie takes place in an alien planet where humans are hunted. the movie had its ups and downs and the typical twists.

The Last Airbender – Movie Review

2 Jul 2010  8 Comments

I was really excited to see this movie, as I watched a season of the anime and found it to be OK. I thought The Last Airbender on the big screen would be great especially M. Night Shyamalan even though his last few movie sucked.

During the first 30 minutes I didn’t like the pace of the movie, I felt they were trying to cramp everything in 90 mins and for people who aren’t familiar with the series would easily get lost. Also the movie could have benefited from the action sequences that i think it was a missed opportunity mr. Shyamalan never did an action movie before so I wont hold it against him.

The movie just covers the first season of the animated series, so this should be a trilogy but I don’t think it will generate enough profit to convince Paramount to do the next 2 part.

Knight and Day – Movie Review

It’s been a while since I went to a Tom Cruise movie I feel that the guy lost his touch and his movies aren’t that great anymore. This movie is no different. It tries to mix action and comedy but it fails in both I would recommend watching The A-Team if you are looking for that sort of movie.

29 Jun 2010  5 Comments

Me and Zidaneoo went to see Grown Ups yesterday as our first movie in Houston, The movie is packed with all the big names of comedy as Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, Rob Schneider and Salma Hayek. But that didn’t make the movie exceptional it is a good movie that started pretty stronlgly but the tempo came doen as the movie went along. Its filled with one-liners that really made us laugh.

The A-Team – Movie Review

20 Jun 2010  4 Comments

ME and the guys went to see The A-Team yesterday. After seeing the Karate Kid, it was a blast from the past weekend. The Movie had a pretty good score and based on one of my favorite show as a kid. So I had high expectations.

The movie follows the roughly the same insane vibe as the early 80′s TV shows with outrageous plans, stunts and its filled with comedy. Keep in mind this is not a proper action movie. Its just outrageous and unbelievable so don’t go to this movie expecting a believable storyline and escapes. But it was very entertaining.

The Karate Kid – Movie Review

18 Jun 2010  2 Comments

I first mentioned the Karate Kid back in February. I’ve been looking forward for the remake of the classic 1984 movie of the same name. I don’t know about you but our generation grew up with that movie an the “Wax on wax off” phrase.

The movie was very good
(what Jackie Chan movie isn’t?), I didn’t expect it to be this good actually. it was entertaining, and filled with lines from the original.

The movie is highly recommended for both fans of the original and new comers.

Get Him To The Greek – Review

7 Jun 2010  3 Comments

Get Him To The Greek was on my list of ” movies to watch” but it moved to the top of the list and I went and saw it today after it got recommended by NJ yesterday.

It might not be the funniest movie of all time but it might be this years funniest movie.

Jonah Hill (Super Bad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Funny People, and a ton of other movies) along with Russell Brand the weird British dude from (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) make a good team in maintaing the level of comedy in this movie.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

Thanx NJ

Date Night – Review

4 Jun 2010  3 Comments

Yesterday, with no major plan set for the day. I decided to go see Date Night as I was told not to even thing of going to see it in Kuwait because of censorship. After watching it I can see why and imagine how the movie was in Kuwait.

Its a decent movie, its not one of the classics for Steve Carell nor Tina Fey. nut still watchable. And yes it is still showing in the cinemas here.

David Copperfield Show – Review

3 Jun 2010  4 Comments

This is the last of the shows I saw in Vegas I promise, its been hectic seeing 2 shows a day and just eating burgers :/

If you don’t know who David Copperfield is then to put it in a few word: “he is the best magician of our time” if you seen some of his previous work you would agree.

The show was filled with people fro china that where a part of a group that didn’t speak any english. As he brought people up the stage they couldn’t understand him and just stood there staring at him which made the show a little frustrating.

As fort the illusions there was some really cool ones that keeps you puzzled. but there was no “WOW” factor.

David’s show just couldn’t compare to what Vegas have to offer and is the lowest ranking show I’ve seen in this trip.
