Two weeks ago, the second addition to the franchise ‘The Hunger Games’ hit the theaters. Those who read the books were more than excited, those who saw the first movie were probably just excited moderately, and others probably didn’t really care. I saw it (obviously), and I can honestly say I liked it. A great action film for fans of the books, and JLaw fans. The film stayed pretty true to the book in my opinion, and fulfilled my expectations. The movie takes place after the first one where Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem. It was a great movie, all except for crying Katniss. It gets annoying after a while, and you’ll wish she could make up her mind after a while. But the movie really gets interesting when the 75th Hunger Games begins. With a great cast, an accurate script, a cliff hanger that makes you want to have to see the next film, and of coarse, a kissing scene that Honest Trailers, and Cinema Sins will have a field day on, this film gets a B-. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is now playing in theaters. Rated PG-13 for for intense sequences of violence and action, some frightening images, thematic elements, a suggestive situation and language. Tick Tock…
OH! THE GREAT GATSBY! I loved the book, best book I’ve ever read! Oh, you mean the Baz Luhrmann film with Leo Dicaprio, Cary Mulligan, and emo spider-man. Yeah I guess it was ok, except for a few things. Number one, the cut out scenes. I strongly recommend that you read the book first because there are a few major things he leaves out. Number two, I feel that he made it too modern with the pop music, and the swag. The book had a completely different feel. Other than that it was great. Leonardo plays the best Gatsby ever, I mean he is Gatsby no one could have done it better than him. Great job Leo! You go for that oscar! In fact, the cast was the best part about the film. Even Toby Maguire was great. All in all I rate it a 6, only because it didn’t live up to the book. Appropriate for ages 13 and up for violence, and alcohol. The Great Gatsby is now available on blu-ray, and DVD. Thanks for reading you guys I’ll have a new movie every Monday. See ya round the web!
What’s up you guys! Grant here, just wanted to say sorry I haven’t been able to make any posts in a while, but now I’m back, and now have facebook! That’s right! Grants Reviews is now going social! Unfortunately the page isn’t ready yet, but once it’s up I guarantee you There Will Be Blood! Just kidding xD that’s just another of so many films I’ve seen. Fortunately, there are still movies being made so we don’t have to worry about that. As long as there’s a movie I’ll always be there to review it. See you guys on the social network, and keep an eye out for more posts on the blog, and facebook, and if all goes well maybe a twitter! I haven’t decided because I don’t even use my twitter anymore.
Great film! Completely puts the other films in a different perspective. The film follows Bilbo Baggins, and his journey to the lonely mountain with thirteen dwarfs, and a wizard in hopes of retrieving the dwarfs long lost kingdom conquered by a dragon. Those who are expecting a lot of book related things, may be disappointed, but other than that, and the cgi orks, and goblins, it was a fantastic movie. A must see in 3-D. Appropriate for ages 8+. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is now playing in theaters.
This was a great film! Definitely one to buy on DVD, or Blu-Ray. Make sure you see it before the Oscars because there’s a sure way that it’ll be nominated, and even win a majority of them. In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole, agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s daughter, Cosette. The fateful decision changes their lives forever. A true masterpiece! Appropriate for ages 15+ for brief sexual content. Les Miserables is now playing in theaters.
Hey guys, sorry I haven’t been keeping up, but I haven’t seen any new movies. Just recently, I went on a trip to Oklahoma to visit some relatives, long story short, they’re big horror movie fans. So we stopped by a redbox, and found a move called Back From Hell, our 1st mistake. Our 2nd mistake was watching it. That was a terrible horror movie, and I haven’t seen much horror movies. The acting was terrible, I hated the character development, and the script wasn’t worth printing.
Six friends find more than a haunted house when they get away to the countryside for a brief vacation. Strange phenomena and horrifying paranormal events ultimately turn into an un-holy possession for one of the friends. A local priest is called in to exorcise a demonic force but its evil powers may be more than even he can handle.
I do not recommend this movie. Not appropriate for ages 14 or under.
I freaking love this series! This is one of the best television programs since Andy Griffith! It’s my favorite T.V. show. Town sheriff Rick is on police duty before the Apocalypse, and he gets a call in. One thing led to another, and he was in the middle of a gun fight. After the fight, another man comes out of the car, and shoots Rick. He ends up in the hospital. When he wakes up, it’s quiet, the clock in his room isn’t moving, the flowers beside his bed have wilted, and it’s dark. He gets up, and roams the hospital. At the end of the hall, there’s a door labeled “DEAD INSIDE DON’T OPEN” So he wanders until he finds some people who tell him what happened, so in the next morning, he sets of to find his wife, and kid. It has my full recommendation! Full of action, the script is magnificent, the acting is spectacular, and the plot, and depth are unfathomable. Appropriate for ages 13+ for intense blood, and gore. You can get The Walking Dead seasons 1 & 2 on DVD, or netflix. And be sure to catch up on season three. New episodes Sundays on AMC.
I couldn’t classify this movie as disappointing, because I never expected much to begin with. I’m not much of a Kristen Stewart fan, but she did ok in this film. Not amazing, but ok. The movie is about a young girl, Snow White, who is borne a princess, and is gentle as she is kind. One day, the queen dies, and the grieving king goes into battle against an unknown force. After they win the battle, they find a woman. The king marries her the next day. That night, the woman slays the king, and takes over the kingdom. A few years later, Snow White escapes her prison, and the queen finds a huntsman to hunt her down. Realizing the evil deed, he decides to help Snow. It’s not a bad plot, the acting could be a little better, the script needs work, all in all, it would not be a recommendation on my part. Appropriate for ages 9+.
I can honestly say that this movie scared me out of my pants! The freakiest movie that I’ve seen since The Shining. When a secret underground facility called the hive has a chemical leak, a small team of soldiers goes there to investigate, and take down the master computer, known as the red queen. But they had no idea what happens when the power goes out, or who is waiting for them. A great film with lots of kick butt zombie action… Mainly by the women of the group (Milla Jovovich, and Michelle Rodriguez.) Appropriate for ages 15 and up. Resident Evil is available on dvd today. Resident Evil: Retribution is in theaters today.
When I heard of this movie, I was sure that I wasn’t going to see it. I though it would just be another poorly written, action, Sci-fi film. I was wrong. This was a far better than I thought. A man from the 1800s sends for his nephew, and suddenly dies. John leaves his nephew his journal, and inside contains the story of how he got to mars. A great story, nice cast, writing was great. The movie in all was full of action, comedy, romance, and alien creature violence. John Carter is appropriate for ages 10 and up. In my opinion it should have been PG. Great movie, and it’s available on blu-ray, and DVD today.
