Logan Review

logan-hugh-jackman-700x300

I don’t know about you, but ever since the first X-Men movie I have always felt like something was missing from Wolverine. Every time he sunk his claws into a bad guy, I yearned for blood. It only made sense right? I mean, Wolverine has uber-sharp metallic claws that he uses to rip people to shreds, yet there was never any blood. It always kinda took me out of the movie. Not to mention that a guy like Wolverine, a notorious rebel who can’t be killed and doesn’t give a fuck about anything, would constantly be swearing both in and out of combat. I understand that not every X-Men movie could have been rated R, but still, I always felt like the character of Wolverine had so much more to offer than what had been given to us.

Let’s Be Cops Review

INTRO_letsbecops_LetsBeCopsMistakenIdentityLet’s be real about Let’s Be Cops for a second. It presents a somewhat interesting premise about what would happen if two regular guys tried seeing what it would feel like to impersonate cops, but in the end doesn’t deliver the goods. The movie really tries to be obscene and crass, but it doesn’t go far enough most of the time. It’s formulaic, cliche-filled, predictable, and way too long. The biggest crime the movie commits is that it really isn’t as funny as it thinks it is. There are a few chuckle-worthy moments scattered throughout, but nothing that you will remember or quote afterwards. The characters in the movie spent more time laughing at their jokes than I did. It isn’t all bad though, because Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans, Jr. have great chemistry together. They genuinely feel like real guys and play off each other nicely. Is it enough to save the movie? I didn’t think so. Continue reading Let’s Be Cops Review

The LEGO Movie Review

If you can imagine it, you can build it in The LEGO Movie
If you can imagine it, you can build it in The LEGO Movie

This is it. My dream come true. A movie about my favorite toys growing up (and now), LEGOs. After all the LEGO brick building, LEGO video game playing, there is finally a real LEGO movie I can watch in a daze of happiness. But this is more than I could have hoped for. It has a star studded (get it) cast featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson and Elizabeth Banks just to name a few. It has more LEGO character cameos than you can imagine, all hilarious. It has the perfect mix of humor and sincerity, enough to keep younger kids interested and a little something to keep us older people tuned in. In case you haven’t noticed yet, I thoroughly enjoyed The LEGO Movie.

The Legend of Hercules Review

Chain me up, torture me, just please don't make me watch it again!
Chain me up, torture me, just please don’t make me watch it again!

What do you get when you put horrendous acting, terrible CGI, and an idiotic plot all rolled together? Give up? You get The Legend of Hercules, starring Kellan Lutz as the title character. I have been trying to think of something that was enjoyable about the movie, some sort of saving grace. The only thing I can come up with is that it was entertaining making fun of the movie while I was watching it. That’s it.

Lone Survivor, directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg, tells the story of a four-man SEALs team sent into Afghanistan tasked to capture or kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. However, Operation Red Wings goes horribly wrong when the team is discovered and they must fight to survive against impossible odds.
