Next week

Wow so I watched the trailer to Juno which looked pretty good unfortunately no money until next week so that’s when I can pick up the reviewing again. I still want to see The Mist too so I’ll see how that goes. So movies won’t be that good in release the next two weeks up until I am Legend which I’m seeing the night it comes out. Looks fantastic. And remember Cinematography is infinite in its possibilites.

Hitman Review

Stars

Timothy Olyphant

      Ah more and more video games movies? When will it ever end? Only the sky knows but the question is does it measure up? That’s like asking if a human can throw a potato five miles, it’s only happened once. Anyway, Timothy Olyphant plays the infamous Agent 47, raised as a child with no name and becomes an elite assassin. Agent 47 gets caught up in a tangle when he kills a politician and realizes “The Organization” set him up. In the middle of it all, he has to protect Nika Boronina (played by Olga Kurylenko) from the organization as well. Now I have to say I went into this movie with really low expectations, I did not expect Timothy Olyphant to be a great Agent 47, I pretty much expected the movie to be craptacular (which is not a word but I’ll make an exception today). And to be quite honest the movie completely suprised me in how it was. It was entertaining, the action scenes were pretty well done, and really Timothy Olyphant just downright surprised me. He fits Agent 47 pretty damn well. The movie is even sort of filled with a small gland of humor towards the end. But all the action sequences, especially the one done in the train are fantastic. There were a few boring parts but for an actual assassin movie I thought this was great. And what was actually funny, not giving anything away but in one particular scene Olyphant comes crashing through a window and the couple on the couch are playing a video game and as Olyphant runs by you can clearly see they’re playing the video game version of Hitman. I don’t think this movie will do that great however, cause it got released on a Wednesday before a holiday, so I kind of think they got that raw end of the deal. But I hope it does well because it certainly surprised me.

 Final Verdict : Hitman gets a suprsingly 4 out of 5.

Uh….

Yeah my camera is temporarily up a Wall or something so I’ll have the review out tomorrow which is today but i mean like probably at 2 o’clock if i can find it or i’ll just post the text review. Sorry!

Hitman tomorrow

Going to see Hitman tomorrow. Almost forgot about it and it just blew my mind. I hope it’s decent. Timothy Olyphant seems like an iffy Agent 47 to me. Here goes!

Heyo Just a little update.

All righty then, I haven’t been able to get to any new movies in the past week which is slightly disappointing because I want to see what that Beowulf movie is like cause honestly I think it looks like junk but that’s why I need to see it. So a new review should be out by next Friday hopefully. I’ve just run into a recent string of events that have caused me to postpone things and I’m hopefully getting a new mic by then too. So cheers and keep watching those movies!

Lions for Lambs Review

Lions for Lambs Review

 

Stars

Robert Redford, Tom Cruise, Meryll Streep

 

Ah yes, a film based on the current presidential administration. Lions for Lambs combines three stories that intertwine through out the movie and come together at the end. Robert Redford is Professor Stephen Malley who teaches Political Science at a California University. Throughout the movie Malley talks to student Todd Hayes (played by Andrew Garfield) throughout the movie about his grade and about two other of Malley’s students who enlisted into the military to go to Afghanistan. Meryl Streep is a reporter who is interviewing Tom Cruise (who plays Senator Jasper Irving) throughout the movie. This was a sort of boring movie, but it was a movie that definitely makes you think about the current problems of today’s world. And it definitely brought up something interesting to my view. First and foremost was the point of the media. That they are now simply in it for ratings now. Not to give anything away but at the end of the movie there’s a scene where Hayes who has been talking to Robert Redford throughout the entire movie is watching TV and the main story on the TV is about some dumbshit singer named Fate resembling Britney Spears and Kevin Federline as the main story on the news and on the scrolling ticker is a story about the war in Afghanistan. This is definitely something I feel is true about the media today, because it reminded me of the time when Paris Hilton was going to jail, a giant U.S. General was retiring from the war, and they spent like three hours on Paris Hilton saying the same damn thing over and over again and they broke for thirty seconds just to say the General had retired, which was an absolute huge thing. It was definitely more news worthy than Paris Hilton. Absolute idiocy. Meryl Streep was sort of a boring character until the end as well until she breaks down after interviewing Senator Jasper Irving. Throughout the entire movie she is interviewing him about a new tactic going to be used by the military to take out the Taliban in Afghanistan, an exclusive that he is giving her, and I won’t give anything away but in the end the story definitely affects both Streep and Redford’s students. All around most of the characters are boring in this movie except for Malley and Hayes. And the backstory about the soldiers, the plot is good, but they didn’t do enough for the story. I think they should’ve played it out a little more and make it more exciting and make more of a point of it. Another point they made about this movie was about the political parties, and the point that wasn’t really brought up before was the war on terror a must needed win for the GOP (Grand Old Party or Republicans for short for those of you who are not politically correct)? Not just to beat them, but to signify that the GOP meant security.

 

Final Verdict: Boring movie, but really good thoughts, really good brought up points came across that definitely would make you think and actually have a discussion. And the ending sort of came around and made the movie better. Lions for Lambs gets an interestingly 3 out of 5.  

Going to see Lions for Lambs tomorrow!

Review should be put up on the TF YouTube Channel by tomorrow night! I’m really really interested to see how this movie plays out cause it’s getting interesting reviews.
