Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) Review

‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’ stars Will Farrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, and Steve Carell in the sequel everyone was waiting for, and waiting for, and waiting for.

Will Farrell plays Ron Burgundy, San Diego’s highest rated newsman, who returns to take on New York’s 24-hour news channel.

Now I hesitated in regards to watching this in the theater so thankfully it came to Netflix. I decided to watch the (super-sized version) just for kicks and I wish I had not.

The first half of the movie was funny and watchable, I wasn’t bored up until I realized the movie was a lot longer than expected, roughly 2 hours and 23 minutes to be exact.

I literally sat there wishing it would just end, the movie became less and less funny after the first hour, the amount of unnecessary jokes were too much for my brain, I thought my head was going to explode.

Overall if you do decide to watch this movie, just watch the shorter version and save yourself the pain of sitting through the longer version of the movie. I don’t know what’s worse, Kanye’s appearance or how long the (super-sized version) was? I don’t know, they both even out.

Fifty Shades of Grey Review (2015)

Finally saw ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and in a way it was everything that I expected. First off I went to see this movie knowing that it wasn’t going to be the best picture of 2015 thus didn’t get my hopes up.

The movie felt rushed and I don’t mean that in a good way, the acting was sub-par, they left out a few scenes hence it being so rushed, it really did feel like a more sexed up version of ‘Twilight’.

I felt Jamie Dornan’s (Christian Grey) acting was off but it was ok, I don’t blame him, I blame the script, I liked looking at him.

Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) did a good job for the most part, I actually enjoyed the scenes with her in it.

Overall it was nice having a visual to what I had read, I would recommend this to anyone who could tolerate the books and don’t mind the sub-par acting. The movie is definitely aimed towards woman and/or anyone in a relationship.

Poltergeist Official Trailer (2015)

So I am a fan of the 1982 classic Poltergeist, when I found out they were remaking the original I was skeptical, I watched the trailer than showed my fiancé who also loves the original and we both agreed that we would definitely see the 2015 remake. I am not so much of a fan for remakes but I have high hopes for this remake, what do you guys think? Do think it will be terrible or amazing?

Fifty Shades of Grey

So I told myself that I didn’t want to read the book, let alone watch the movie (I’ve gone over to the dark side).

I am reading the book now (which is not that bad…yet) and I have watched the trailer (by myself) and I am wondering two things. First, are they going to show everything that’s in the book? Second, is it me or does ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ remind everyone of a more sexed up Twilight?

The fact that ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ takes place in Washington (same place as ‘Twilight’), each female character (Bella Swan and Ana Steele) are young virgins who meet older men (Christian Grey and Edward Cullen) and show them what it’s like to experience their inner most desires, I would say yes.

Obviously ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is targeting woman (21-45), it’s another soft core porn for woman (I’m ok with this). I know it comes out the day before Valentine’s Day so of course the theaters are going to be packed with men that were forced to take their significant others to see this movie.

Let’s be honest, no man wants to see this movie unless you’re really into BDSM and romance, every guy would rather stay home and watch ‘The Interview’ on Netflix.

I tried to get my fiancé to take me to see this movie but he declined my offer of being surrounded by woman for a 124 minutes (his loss).

Luckily a co-worker of mine is willing to see this movie with me (thankfully) because I am not seeing this by myself, which would be lame.

The Boy Next Door – Trailer

I told myself I wouldn’t watch this movie but after a friend posted a post in regards to the top reasons to watch “The Boy Next Door” I felt I should re watch the trailer and make my final decision.

So after re watching the trailer I have come to the conclusion that I already know the movie from start to finish therefore I should watch it for a good laugh or two.
1.    J Lo is married to a man who commits infidelities.
2.    J Lo is miserable so she goes for a casual jog in the neighborhood.
3.    J Lo’s son is friends with the very attractive boy next door.
4.    J Lo is informed by a random woman that her husband commits infidelities so maybe she should cheat on him.
5.    J Lo needs help lifting the garage door.
6.    Attractive boy next door comes to her rescue.
7.    J Lo sleeps with the boy next door.
8.    J Lo is a high school teacher.
9.    Attractive boy next door mysteriously ends up in the very classroom J Lo teaches with the help of a little computer hacking skills.
10.    J Lo isn’t having any of it
11.    J Lo informs attractive boy next door that the sexual encounter was a mistake and it will never happen again.
12.    Attractive boy next door makes J Lo’s life a living hell.
13.    The attractive boy next door’s parents find out about J Lo and aren’t having any of it.
14.    J Lo’s son and husband find out about her infidelities.
15.    J Lo gets fired.
16.    J Lo goes crazy.
17.    Her husband is still cheating.
18.    Someone fires a gun in the woods.
19.    J Lo and the attractive boy next door brawl, someone gets shot, J Lo thinks the attractive boy next door is dead.
20.    J Lo survives and moves away from the town she lives in with her son and possibly her husband, she ends up in another town where no one knows her name.
21.    The attractive boy next door followed her and stalks her for all eternity.
22.    The end.

The Wolf of Wall Street

This movie was absolutely amazing to say the least. I have been a big Leonardo DiCaprio fan since the 7th grade, this movie was perfect for him.
I feel like I’m late reviewing this movie since it came out in 2013 but whatever, this movie blew my mind.

I just saw this movie a week ago and I loved it so much. 4 out of 5 times a movie based off of a true story is generally good but there is always that 1 movie based off of a true story that sucks balls, this was not that movie.

The movie is based off the rise and fall of the infamous stock-broker Jordan Belfort. I can’t even imagine anyone else playing Jordan than Leonardo DiCaprio.

I honestly don’t know why I waited THIS long to watch this masterpiece.
Every actor in this movie was amazing, I loved the movie from start to finish. The movie didn’t feel like a 180 minute long movie, I honestly didn’t want it to end.

From the moment I watched the movie I became sucked into it, I fell in love with the characters, the story line, I wanted to know everything about everyone (not many movies make me feel that way).

I do believe the last Leonardo DiCaprio movie I saw was The Great Gatsby and I didn’t care for it. I felt the original was way better.

Overall this movie was amazing and if you haven’t seen it, please go rent it or watch it on Netflix/Amazon Prime.

Sex Tape

Boy oh boy what to say about the movie Sex Tape…
Well the first half of the movie was quite comical, I’ll give the writers that. Is the movie relatable? Yes definitely, it has the formula to be a really good comedy but I started to lose interest after 30 minutes into watching the movie, it’s a 94 minute movie about a sex tape; how entertaining could it be?

As much as I love Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal together in a comedy, the humor felt forced, I felt like I had to like this movie a lot because they were both in the movie but alas I couldn’t wait for the movie to end.

The movie fell short for me, the best parts of the movie were shown in the commercial, I was very glad I didn’t see this in the movie theater.

Rob Corddry and Ellie Kemper were my favorite in the whole movie and that was it, the scenes were pretty funny but the comedy they brought to the table wasn’t enough for me, see this movie at your own risk.

Carrie (2013)

So my fiancé and I finally decided to watch Carrie (2013). I prior to watching this remake saw the original Carrie (1976) which I thoroughly enjoyed. I hesitated to watch the remake because I wasn’t sure if it would live up to the original but I actually enjoyed it.

I know some people didn’t really enjoy the remake but they definitely did a good job for the most part. My fiancé didn’t see the original so I was pleased that they didn’t change too much even though the remake was from present time.

Chloe Grace Moretz definitely filled Sissy Spacek’s shoes. The whole movie just like the original was very creepy and gory. Julianne Moore was just as bat shit crazy as Piper Laurie, if not even more.

If I could change one thing from the remake it would be the end. If you haven’t seen the original, see it, than see the remake; you will understand I why I said that.

Maleficent

Maleficent is such a good movie, it was probably so good because I watched The Giver the night before (which was terrible).

In all seriousness I loved this movie, what I really loved was that it showed a side of Maleficent that no one knew about.

I kept telling myself as I watched the movie, “she isn’t THAT evil, a broken heart caused her pain, suffering, and heartache, it isn’t her fault”.

Angelina Jolie did an absolutely fantastic job as the evil fairy herself, I literally was scared of her and I cringed every time I saw her boney cheekbones.

The ending from what my fiancé describes it, “was too happy” but I mean Disney purposely changed the whole Sleeping Beauty story obviously.

The movie had its scary moments, happy moments, sad moments; it was done so well.

The CGI was questionable, at one point in the movie Maleficent turned her black raven sidekick (Diaval) into a weird looking wolf; completely threw me off because his wolf like face looked weird.

Overall I would totally recommend this movie, definitely a must watch for the whole family.

The Giver

So The Giver, I am glad I didn’t pay $12.00 to see this movie in the movie theater, I am so glad I waited till it came out for Redbox.
Last night I rented this movie, I had an understanding that the movie may or may not be good. I had my hopes up because the book was good so maybe the movie would be just as good?
Well I was wrong, where do I begin?
•    The acting was terrible.
•    The movie felt rushed.
•    I didn’t feel any attachment, emotion, sympathy for any of the characters.
•    The only people I looked forward to watching throughout this catastrophe was Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, and Odeya Rush but this doesn’t say much.
•    Katie Holmes was annoying me the whole time (she isn’t a good actor, Tom Cruise must of messed her up good).
See the movie if you want but I warned you, you only get one fair warning and that is it.
