Plus it was in 3d and I did not want to spend the extra money to see a movie in 3d because 3d adds VERY LITTLE to a movie. They make more money on the 3d movies so I get why they do it but it sucks really for everyone except the people making the money.</p><p>I do not have cable anymore so I am basically stuck watching local television or free stuff on Amazon Prime. <a rel='external' href='https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcGIvQJhbSY' title='Red Oaks'>Red Oaks</a> is pretty good - if you can stand all the 80s references.</p><p>But I digress. I went to see Geostorm on a Sunday of all days. Who would have thought that so many people go out to the theaters on a Sunday night? That combined with the parking lot being resurfaced made for a whole lot of cars in the dust bowl at the back of Carib 5 with the usual guy doing donuts in his BMW for no apparent reason.</p><p>I dont know where all the people went because the room showing Geostorm was quarter full. They were probably seeing Thor or something else. But I was there to see a disaster movie. Geostorm turned out to be pretty bad. I mean really, really bad but with lots of CGI which I kinda expected from <a rel='external' href='https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuOlYPSEzSc' title='the trailor'>the trailor</a>. The trailor spoils the entire movie. I was really looking forward to a good new world destruction movie but 4 out 10. terrible movie.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2407/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Wed, 08 Nov 2017 12:52:47 -0600 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2217/ The transporter: refueled movie review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2217/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2217/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1685.jpg" /></a><p>‎Refueled is a ok movie. Not very good but it is ok. The movie is basically a big Audi advertisement filled with ass shots of skinny super models. All super models are skinny so that is kinda redundant.‎   Stuff happens, people get into the Audi, they talk to each other on thier iphone 6s and more stuff happens. People get sucker punched for doing thier jobs. The movie is just full of assholes. The new guy is probably the biggest one.</p><p>The new guy suuuuuccckkkks compared to Jason. And he has the same accent which makes it hard to not compare the 2 actors.</p><p>The movie has some very nice aerial shots of France.‎‎<br />‎<br />I give it a 5 out of 10. Very average action movie to the point of pointlessness. Pointless fighting, pointless dialog.  Wait until it comes out on cable or netflix.‎ You will have more fun watching the original movie again.<br /></p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2217/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Sat, 05 Sep 2015 23:19:37 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2205/ Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2205/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2205/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1619.jpg" /></a><p>Rogue Nation is like what MI 6 or 5? I cannot even keep track. This movie is more of the same. Real stunts are still unecessarily unecessary. Alot of the actions scenes are just set up for action sake. You will not be disappointed but at the end of the movie you will be like meh, on to the next one.</p><p>BMW is the sponsor of this one and there seems to be an unlimited supply of cars and bikes that just appear at random places during this globe trotting movie. I am not even sure how these people get around in this day and age of flight delays and check-in lines.</p><p>My rating 6/10. Pretty forgettable. action, for action sake. Hunt is fearless and indestructable. You won&#039;t be disappointed but you might as well wait until it comes on cable.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2205/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:52:50 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2174/ Mad Max: Fury Road Movie Review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2174/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2174/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1457.jpg" alt=" poster designed by [url]http://www.mattneedle.co.uk/Mad-Max-Fury-Road[caption]mattneedle[/url]" /></a><p>Well at least its not a remake is probably the first notable thing to point out. Mad Max: Fury Road might be the single most pointless movie to watch in 3d - avoid the 3d version if you can because it adds nothing to a movie set in a desert wasteland. This movie should never be watched in 3d - EVER. It took about like 15 minutes for my eyes to get accustomed to the glasses and the 3d-ness. Pointless.</p><p>At this point 3d is pretty much a movie goers annoyance and in small countries like Jamaica there is pretty much no choice on the matter, the theaters want to make as much money as they can, so I watched it, well I suffered through the movie in 3d.</p><p>Mad Max: Fury Road is a OK movie. A little above average at best. Its not a must see at the theater because it really does nothing that would impress a hardcore fan of the previous 3 movies. And the movie in general kinda wastes your time. The plot is simple with a few crazy characters and a classic Darth Vader bad guy. </p><p>My Rating 7 out of 10. Ok action movie. Not as good as people hype it up to be. Watch the old movies first. Wait until it comes out on DVD. Great practical stunts.</p><p>UnOfficial movie poster designed by <a rel='external' href='http://www.mattneedle.co.uk/Mad-Max-Fury-Road' title='mattneedle'>mattneedle</a>.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2174/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Fri, 22 May 2015 08:53:49 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2139/ The Boy Next Door - Movie Review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2139/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2139/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1321.jpg" /></a><p>There is not much I can say about this movie. </p><p>The tag line is &quot;Her mistake. His obsession.&quot; Would be a better title for this movie which has been done a million times before. All this does not matter the audience get a few shots of Jlo and the boy next door.</p><p>It can best be described as a Lifetime Movie.

It almost crashes and burns at one point but thank heavens that it kept going long enough to actually finish tell‎ing it&#039;s story. </p><p>Interstellar is a very good movie. It goes hard into science fiction and theoretical physics without making too many dumb mistakes or unnecessary shortcuts.  ‎Nolan knows how to tell a story.   9 out of 10. Must watch. Long and boring but worth the trip for space science nerds only.  </p><p>A slow ride into nothingness, probably my movie of the year.‎<br />‎<br />Some notable quotes;‎<br />He&#039;s gonna be a good farmer.  We are our children&#039;s ghosts.

Lol. To no surprise there were about 10 people in the theatre.‎<br />‎<br />I arrived early to suffer through advertisements and standing while the national anthem played instrumental ( why is there no lyrics? ). </p><p>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. <br />‎<br />It&#039;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.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2080/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Wed, 15 Oct 2014 20:56:20 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2056/ The November man - movie review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2056/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2056/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1251.jpg" /></a><p>‎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&#039;s the nature of everything nowadays; ads.</p><p>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.</p><p>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&#039;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.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2056/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Sun, 07 Sep 2014 00:19:36 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2043/ Lucy movie review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2043/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2043/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1241.jpg" /></a><p>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 <a rel='external' href='http://youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU' title='Home Project'>Home Project</a> is an amazing piece for videography.</p><p>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 <a rel='external' href='http://youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU' title='Home Project'>Home Project</a> youtube video instead - it&#039;s a better waste of your time.<br />‎<br />‎</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2043/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Sat, 02 Aug 2014 10:30:24 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2038/ Think Like a Man Too Review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2038/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2038/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1236.jpg" /></a><p>It was a really funny movie in a more natural way that than the <a rel='external' href='/v4/item/2003/' title='previous movie I watched'>previous movie I watched</a> even though it had the same 4 actors.

The jokes are good even if the motives of the people were questionable. I didn&#039;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.</p><p>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&#039;t sake her &quot;Scary Movie&quot; character from my mind no matter how high her heals are.</p><p>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&#039;s hand in this.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/2003/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Sun, 16 Mar 2014 20:00:32 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1989/ Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Movie Review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1989/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1989/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1194.jpg" /></a><p>This movie seemed good at first but pretty much as soon as it starts it falls into the trap of the typical American action suspense nonsense thriller with army dudes chatting about their favorite football teams while flying ‎a helicopter over Afghanistan.   The bad guy is bad for no reason, somebody gets kidnapped and an international terrorist plan - years in the making is unraveled in 2 minutes by contacting dots in an epic monologue.   Everything comes together in a seamless blend of advertisements and stereotypical action sequences timed to perfection.</p><p>Nothing is ever really explained and the things that are explained are pointless establishing shots. Weird things happen that make you raise and eyebrow and then 10 minutes later you say to yourself; &quot;oohh so that&#039;s why he killed that dude for a lamp bulb!&quot;. Nowadays I think movie writers are just thinking of new ways to fool people into watching the same movie.</p><p>Rated 6 out of 10. Skip it unless you want to spend an hour watching a pointless spy movie.‎<br />‎</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1989/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Sat, 25 Jan 2014 09:08:45 -0600 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1917/ Home Again Review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1917/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1917/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1130.jpg" /></a><p>I enjoyed the movie thoroughly despite seeing <a rel='external' href='http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004700/' title='Tatyana Ali'>Tatyana Ali</a> without makeup in the sunlight. Its a good movie from start to end, pulling few punches while portraying the life of 3 deportee Jamaicans who were born overseas and were cast out back to Jamaica &quot;home again&quot; without much hope of survival or social network. You should go out and watch it, <a rel='external' href='https://vimeo.com/62021892' title='watch the trailor'>watch the trailor</a>. It is as good as <a rel='external' href='http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1573/' title='Getta Life'>Getta Life</a> and <a rel='external' href='http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1442/' title='Better Mus Come'>Better Mus Come</a> while covering a challenging topic and avoiding the traps of hollywood movies today.</p><p>The whole movie is beautifully shot with some expensive cameras. I was confused by the whole shot on location in Trinidad vs Jamaica but at the end of the day it doesn&#039;t even come into play, it all blends in seemlessly.<br />9 out of 10.

I&#039;ve watched all the previous 5 movie in order as they came out and this has got be the dumbest out of all of them. This has some of the most dumb physics breaking stunts to the point where your mind cannot even comprehend why people would climb onto the roof of a car and jump onto another car 500 times in the same movie - shit is ridiculous. </p><p>People chasing Formula1 cars with SUVs and keeping up is not only impossible but makes a fan of the previous movies go waaaa???!!!?</p><p>I give it a 6 out of 10. Lots of dumb stunts. 50 mile long runway. Use the bullet to find the shooter, crap twist. Meh.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;Doesn&#039;t really matter how you watch it.</p><h4>Extended Review</h4><p>The director used all the same old tricks from the previous movies; skinny white chicks in bikinis, super clean cars that are never used, random aerial shots, empty garages, people flipping cars on a regular basis. There was no sense of danger in this movie. All the stars do things that only superheroes would even attempt without a weeks worth of planning and preparation. The people in this movie know that they can&#039;t die so they have no second thoughts about doing crazy shit.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1844/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Sat, 01 Jun 2013 10:36:04 -0500 http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1823/ Tom Cruise's Oblivion Review (Movies) http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1823/ <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1823/"><img src="http://owensoft.net/v4/photo/thumb/1043.jpg" /></a><p>Its pretty movie. Not as bad as Prometheous but pretty. Full of plot holes and wtf moments. The story is kinda meh. I would suggest you watch the movie called &quot;Moon&quot; starring Sam Rockwell. Moon is a much better movie, not as pretty but well written and not filled with random crap. I give Oblivion 5 out of 10; pretty graphics but totally forgettable.</p><p>There is always some dumb twist at the end which obviously the director thinks is GENIUS! but this a good movie does not make. A movie is the some of its parts. A movie cannot ride on its bueaty alone, nor can it ride on the actor that plays the star. Crap is crap straight up.</p> <p><strong>by owen</strong> <a href="http://owensoft.net/v4/item/1823/#comment">make a comment</a></p> Mon, 06 May 2013 11:36:21 -0500
