gamer

as a avid Gamer i have to admit that i was oddly curious about this movie. In my mind i already knew what to expect. For starters, “Gamer” is set in the not so distant future (where have i heard that before). In this future, death row inmates are given a chance to compete in a team based war game called “slayers”. survive 30 sessions and you get your freedom again. whats the catch? Some random person is controlling your every move. Enter Kable (how it is spelled in he movie). Kable is the only competitor that has ever come close to attaining 30 sessions. with 27 sessions under his belt, it looks like he will be a free man soon. But of course its a action movie. Its never that easy. long story short GAMER is a fun mindless movie with no shortage of action. Fans of movies like “The running man” will feel right at home with this movie. Michael C. Hall(Dexter) deserves a honorable mention for his role as the Blatantly obvious evil billionaire inventor of slayers Ken castle. I love this character. If you are looking for a few good unintenional laughs and Constant on screen rampage GAMER is for you.

poster_inglorious-1 I will admit to not being a big tarantino fan. His films have always been “hit or miss” with me. INGLORIOUS BASTERDS is not the WW2 war movie that was promised. Instead the movie plays out more akin to a espionage film. As expected Tarantino fills BASTERDS with a hefty amount of pointless dialogue that goes nowhere really fast and does nothing but succeed in boring viewers. fortunately the violence in the movie makes up for the boring dialogue. nothing beats seeing Eli Roth beating a nazi to death with a baseball bat. However, overall BASTERDS is another test in patience for film goers. if you can manage to sit through the 25 minutes of dialogue to see 8 minutes of action then you will enjoy the movie. I would recommend waiting for the dvd release and borrowing it from a friend.

fast-and-furious4-poster_0_0_0x0_400x594

my first movie review. I figured i would go with a movie in theaters now.  first off, why the hell did they call it “fast & furious” like its a new movie and not a interquel.  Anyway, If you have seen the first two movies you know what to expect. The movie opens with scene reminiscent of the very first movie with  torreto(vin diesel)  and crew  hijacking oil trucks in the dominican republic. Torreto eventually dispands his crew and flees to panama.  Eventually Torreto recieves a phone call from his sister Mia(jordana brewster) informing him of Letty’s(michelle rodriguez)  murder. Its through the investigation into Letty’s death that the main cast is reunited and the quest to bring the man behind the murder to justice.

 The Fast and The furious movies  mainly appeal to 3 groups of people, Gear heads , wannabe street racers , and finally action movie lovers. If you do not fit into any of these categories,DO NOT watch this movie.  Now if you  have seen the rest of the movies then you might as well go see this movie. Although one complaint i do have is the fact  that for a series that was supposed to deal with street racing, the FF series drifts(no pun intended) away from this idea as the second and forth movies only featured one race in each and focused mainly on the crime element of the movie.  The acting ranges from bad to mediocre.  which by action movie standards is not so bad. There are points in the movie where my mind started drifting from lack of interest in what was going on in the movie. more than  likely  because most of the filler scenes in between crucial scenes have been exactly the same in every movie in the series.Although i will say that the scenes featuring Jordana brewster will quickly get your attention back. Honestly, save your money for CRANK 2 .
