The Dark Knight Rises movie review

Let me start out by saying that I give this movie a 7 out of 10. Its a ok, movie. Its not great. This one of those movies that use the reverse story trick; the kind of story that keeps gives you wrong information so that at the end it can pull a switcher-rue.

Its a long movie with lots of pointless distractions. The movie flies up into space, takes some pictures then crashes down to earth in the last 5 minutes of pointless talking and self reflection. Catwoman is lame. Bane was pretty good as a charactor but went to great lenghts just to do something that could have been done in a 5 minute fight scene.

The movie wants to be deep but it comes off more long winded than anything else. Winding up a story like that then explaining it at the end is not what I consider "cool". Much ado about nothing. Sex me just to stab me in the side 10 minutes later - oh I am cool and deep. BS. 7 out of 10.

PS. I still hate the bike. The bike sucks.

Prometheus Review

Scientists making illogical and stupid decisions. Thats the whole movie. Most of the charactors were flat. Charlize Therone needs to gain like 20 pounds. A18 movie with 2 perfect oppurtunites for nude sex scenes but decide to fade to black. The story connects to aliens but its all really just a farse.

If you go to an alien planet, why take off you helmet outside? It breaks quarantine, EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT! Why would you take off your helmet? Is it uncomfortable, is it inching you? With all the scifi-wizardry in the movie nothing is really scientific; hyper-sleep? proximity scans? skin tight rubber suits? been there done that. There are episodes of Star Trek that have more sci-fi and smarter people than this movie.

7 out of 10. A few pretty scenes from national geographic but nothing you haven't seen before. The original movie is better. Rent it or watch it on cable.

Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol - Review

I thought it was pretty good. I don't remember them playing the mission impossible theme (you know at the point where it would start and you know some crazy shit is about to happen?) often enough. But besides that the stunts where cool with some seat of your pants action. The other team members manage to not annoy me too much which is surprising and none of them ended up being a double agent - which tends to happen allot in action movies nowadays.

Some elements are good but not as good as the Cliff hanging in MI3 or hanging above the computer room in the original MI movie but it certainly holds it own. Oh yeah and tom cruise does lots of running, I don't know how anybody can possibly out run him unless they were Bolt but its a action movie so the stunts are not really based on reality.

I give it a 9 out of 10. Lots of tech-gadgets and women and cars, running, no sex, no boobies, wicked stunts, hits to the head, almost feels like james bond, Watch it in the theatre just for the nice fly over scenes in Dubai.

In Time Movie Review

In the not-too-distant future the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. A poor young man who comes into a fortune of time, though too late to help his mother from dying. He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as 'time keepers'.

Lets start out by saying that its a good movie. Above average. If you look past the constant "time puns" and the fact that the lead actress has very sharp knees. They is also lots of running in the movie - they run everywhere like zebras, which in itself is not bad but the lead actress is running and jumping off roofs in high heals (this lady just can't get some dam flats?). At one point her sharp knees got so much screen time that I had to cover my eyes in share pain and look away.

The movie progresses a along and plays out exactly as in the spoiler-full trailer (better not to watch it). Its kinda weird that everybody is young and the mom is hot milf but you get accustomed to the unnaturalness of it.

I give the movie a 7 out of 10. Not fully fleshed out, no major surprises but still worth a watch at the theatre, sharp knees, lots of running, pointless desires, happy ending.

Ghetta Life Movie Review

On the surface it may seem like another scar-face bad-man Jamaican murder gun-movie. And yes it does have some of those elements but it never goes too far and it often skillfully avoids falling into some of the traps that these local Jamaican movies fall in to. Its well written, and nicely shot.

Its a wonderful movie go watch it, now. More info is on its website, I was almost tempted to give it a 10 out of 10 but it had no sex scene so it will have to settle for a 9 out of 10.
