IRON MAN 2

No Comment - Post a comment


Went to see Iron Man 2 and liked it but not as much as the first one. Robert Downey Jr. stole the show once again and really is Tony Stark delivering his lines as if he were making it up as he went along (in fact I read that there was a lot of improv going on during much of the shoot). The interactions between the characters more often then not were more enjoyable than the action sequences. Mickey Rourke makes a great villain...just wish he was given more to do but with an actor of his caliber a look can be worth a thousand words. It was nice seeing a movie based on a comic book where protecting one's secret identity came into play but rather what happens to the hero who does not hide behind the mask.

Cool New Star Trek Film

No Comment - Post a comment


Well, I went to see the new Star Trek film. I saw it in Imax and I must say that although I enjoyed the film in Imax and didn't mind paying the extra money to do so ($15.50 admission) not sure the IMAX experience would be worth it for just any movie. The picture was crisp, the sound was very loud and clear, and yes the screen was bigger, but would I pay IMAX admission to just any movie? The answer would be no. For certain types of films such as this one, heavy on action and big in scope, it was worth it but for a film like Monsters and Aliens I'm glad I went to see it in a non-IMAX theater.

As for the film it was good but as a fan of Star Trek from its beginnings it did not blow me away with the feeling that I just have to see it again. I'm glad that the new film respected many of the elements (Thank you Mr. Nimoy for putting on those ears one more time) that have made Star Trek such a sci-fi icon and has and will continue to draw non-fan viewers to the theaters because this guarantees that there will be more new Star Trek in the future. I thought the new Bones and Spock did the best job at capturing the essence of the original characters. The new Scotty, although having some funny moments, needed to be a little more serious and Uhura was sexy. No complaints there. As for the new Kirk, well you really can't compare to the original as the film is very clever in the way they allow for a different kind of Kirk to evolve. Chekov and Sulu did a good job as well. The special effects were excellent. So, overall I was happy with the movie and can't wait to see where they take it from here as the next film has all ready been green lighted.

Hannah Montana The Movie

No Comment - Post a comment


Just took my twelve year old daughter to see the Hannah Montana Movie and she loved it and to be honest I actually liked it. Sure the story has been told a hundred times before,...someone travels home to find his or herself because he/she has lost her/his way...but somehow it seemed as if I were watching a fairly fresh take. Billy Ray and Miley share some nice moments together in the second half of the film and Miley does have a screen presence and yes, she can act. The songs and musical numbers are well done and the Tenessee landscape is a beautiful backdrop to the story. So if you have kids that are Hannah Montana fans take them to see the movie. I think they will love it and you may be pleasantly surprised. See Hannah Montana at Cool Stuff.

Terminator Salvation...Gotta' Love Those Robots

No Comment - Post a comment


Terminator Salvation, the fourth film in the Terminator franchise, is coming out soon and finally we get to see the future and John Connor all grown up. The first three films were good and let's face it the role of the Terminator was one that Arnold was born for. I've been watching the Sarah Connor Chronicles on Fox and it seems to be a great bridge between the old films and new film. See those robots from the future at Cool Stuff.

 

What Happened To Saturday Mornings?

No Comment - Post a comment


I remember watching Land Of The Lost on Saturday mornings. Getting up before my parents, grabbing my bowl of Captain Crunch and sitting in front of the TV to watch cartoons and so forth from 7:00am to noon. Saturday morning TV has changed and is no longer the safe haven for kids. The classics such as Looney Tunes and those great Sid & Marty Kroft Productions have disappeared to be replaced for the most part by repeats of live-action shows from the network's cable channels if there are no sporting events to show. Saturday mornings use to be sacred ground.

I showed my kids some old Land Of The Lost episodes on DVD and they loved them. Kids are the same, just Saturdays have changed. Hollywood has not forgotten the Saturday mornings of yesterday and I look forward to seeing the new Land Of The Lost film that is coming out. I just hope they are selling Captain Crunch at the snack bar. Get Lost again at Cool Stuff.
