2 guns 2013

2 Guns

Budget: $61 million
Box office: $131 million

This is a very nice 2013 action film, and 2013 was bad and very dry year for quality films. The film about FBI, CIA, military and drug cartels and they all have 1 thing in common – money. I do not know why and how, however there is an love story, perhaps for the ladies, because the love story plays important role in the end of the film. Film is good, little to no real propaganda, there are lots of awesome and memorable scenes and quotes, I like the film, it was fun and interesting to watch. Please enjoy it too.

X-Men Days of Future Past

X-Men Day of Future Past

X-Men Day of Future Past

Release date: May 23, 2014
X-Men were for the most part pretty successful films. While side story Wolverine films were not so much. X-Men movies have pretty decent plot and nice CGI, while characters had practically no personality, so anytime they would become boring they do this clever trick, look what I can do, and go throw a wall, everybody cheers for special effects. You see people without character can be interesting if there is 150 million dollars in CGI. I have some hopes for new film that is coming out in spring 2014, and one of those hopes is that new X-Men girls suites would look less like uniform and more like dominatrix.

Total Recall 2012

Total Recall 2012

Budget: 200 million
Box Office: 200 million

New Total Recall film, same underground resistance vs the colony but with hot show girls and a lot more special effects. There was a lot of money spent to create environment and design this awesome futuristic world on Mars, and it was done really well, robots, really cool flyers, magnetic drive hover cars and highways, elevator that takes you through the core and on the of the planet. The plot and story line has some inconsistencies, some scenes are very cheesy, but this is not why people watch big budget action films. Please enjoy and it is a good film to make memories.

the family film

The Family 2013

The Family 2013

Budget: $30 million
Box office: $36 million

Its a crime, comedy, action film. Comedy part is subtle. It’s about Manzoni family sells crime boss to FBI and goes through witness protection program from America to France. The Family wants to adjust to new life however, but it doesn’t go well. “Baggage” and habits from the old life catches up with them. I think the film is written well, great plot, good choice of actors, and since I don’t care about imbd or meta critic rating, I think the film is very entertaining and you should see it too.

Serenity

Serenity

Budget: $39 million
Box office: $39 million

I remember watching Serenity film and it was pretty good. I recently watched it again and I was blown away how alive those characters are and how truly awesome and compelling plot is. The story paces itself really well and everything makes sense and people find courage to do what is right when the world is against them. Two hours with somewhat low budget but quality CGI and good personality. Most films that were created after TV series are made to be connect, because owners want more money from you. Serenity is a stand alone film and you are alright if you haven’t seen Firefly series.

Prometheus

Prometheus

Budget: $120–130 million
Box office: $403 million

Prometheus 2012 that is about a long range expedition into space to find answers and to prove theory of creation of the human race. Based on suspicious evidence a group of scientists take a well paid job investigate a planet far far away, but they don’t find God. They find that which was left to them by creators of the human race. A lot of nice CGI, the film is of super high definition and everything looks amazing. Plot is simple, film is too long, but that helps to build suspense, so when everything starts to happen it feels well scary. If you will see the movie, please don’t watch it on small screen or poor quality it will ruin it for you. If you like movies “Alien” – you are in luck, get pop corn, its a two hour film.

Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland

Budget: $150–$200 million
Box office: $1,024 million

I thought I should sneak post this film next to another Johnny Depp film. This will be the only kids film on my site because it was pretty good. Another Alice in Wonderland film, but with 200 million budget it is quite good. It should really be called Alice in Wonderland 2, because it continues first story with new twist, plot is nice and solid, pace is good, characters were wacky. It is fun and entertaining. A nice kids film and it is good and great, however it also looks like an drug induced hallucination and I hope it won’t be used as a pro-drug advertisement.

300 Rise of an Empire

300 Rise of an Empire

Release date: March 7, 2014
The movie “300″ was such a success that they had to make second one. Since 2007 box office developers made over 450 million dollars, so lots of money to throw on new “300 Rise of an Empire” and it looks bad ass in every way. Just look at the trailer and tell me you are going to walk pass and not by popcorn with extra butter.

dark shadows

Dark Shadows

Budget: $150 million
Box office: $238 million

Movie is alright and easy to watch, jokes are funny, special effects are vivid, the plot and writing are okay, however the film was also easy to forget. And the only reason I came back to it and decided to review this movie at all was because of Chloë Grace Moretz – the badass girl from Kickass film. She is a promising actress and she helps to forget that you are watching acting, but she makes characters and things to feel real. I wish her well and I wish you to have a good time watching this movie too, make sure you see it in highest quality possible.

let me in

Let me in

Budget: $20 million
Box office: $24 million

Let me in is a film about vampires because they need invitation to come into your house. This is the kind of film that makes you think, it is not an action Blade 1-3 film with a tough vampire wrecking everyone in his path, it is about being vulnerable, its about compassion to a person you don’t really know, and natural good and evil in a twisted way. It is really well written and directed in my opinion and I would recommend to see it at least once, if you are okay with soft horror films.
