I decided to check out Destiny staring Christopher Martin and Karian Sang on the movie's Wednesday premier showing. I had only heard about the movie last week on twitter. I went early because I knew for certain that Carib5 would be bursting at the seams with Jamaicans rushing out to support a local film. Lol. To no surprise there were about 10 people in the theatre.
I arrived early to suffer through advertisements and standing while the national anthem played instrumental ( why is there no lyrics? ).
Right off the bat the movie suffers from overuse of random popular music, and too many jump cuts in the dialog sequences. Lots of Stereotypical Jamaican clichés. Stealth advertisements. Over acting and under acting. Pointless side plots.
It's a nice little movie with a few laughs scattered between guest cameos. For all those people asking for Jamaican movies not filled with shottas then yall should go out and watch this. 7 out of 10. Not great, but ehh, it can watch.

I am not even sure why I am sitting in the theater waiting for this movie to start. But since I am here I might as well watch it. I am sinking back into my old ways. Sitting through 20 minutes of random advertisements. But that's the nature of everything nowadays; ads.
Smartphones, drones, car chases and lots of glass. Its a spy movie with a little sex, assassinations, hired killers traveling commercial, and revenge - lots of revenge. Random computer technology that magically finds out anything, about anyone instantly.
November has everything you would want in a global spy movie with a mix of interconnected players and plots. I still think he made a good James bond. Skinny white girls, misdirection, it's all a tangled web of murder and mystery. I liked it, November was a pleasure to watch up and until the very end. No stupid open ended BS. It was worth the price of admission. You should see it in the theatre. 9.5 out of 10. Highly recommended. Must watch for spy/action movie fans.

It must have been a long time since I have watched a movie staring scarlet but the over acting in the opening scene was beyond terrible. I would suggest you watch the Home Project because this movie uses a lot of the nature footage from it. The Home Project is an amazing piece for videography.
Lucy is a very short, very average movie. Lucy is basically what you would get from watching a couple weeks of the science channel except with a pretty actress, flimsy explanations and a so so story. I give it a 6/10, watch the Home Project youtube video instead - it's a better waste of your time.

It was a really funny movie in a more natural way that than the previous movie I watched even though it had the same 4 actors. Totally getting tired of these comedians doing every black african american movie over and over and over again.
Anyway its a bachelor party movie but its more worth your time and money than Transformers 4.
8 out of 10. Not as hot as in the picture and there is no reason for Lala to be in this movie.

The movie start out with a barrage of sex jokes then kinda fizzled out to dry humping a cold salad when the drama started. The jokes are good even if the motives of the people were questionable. I didn't see the chemistry between the lead actors and even the enivatable brake up happened I could not see the reasoning behind it at all. Classic breakup to make up story.
I spend most of my time looking for side boob shots from Joy Bryant. While Regina Hall left nothing for the imagination. She looked good though but I can't sake her "Scary Movie" character from my mind no matter how high her heals are.
I give the movie a 7/10. Lots of oral sex jokes and pointless comedy. Tonnes of Sony advertisements everywhere ( all 4 characters had the same Sony cellphone). I smell Tyler Perry's hand in this.
