Under the Skin — MOVIE REVIEW

Scarlett Johansson in Under the Skin

What the hell did I just watch? That statement is probably what at least half of the people who watched this film said. You ever go to see a movie at a theater with people you love discussing films with and have the entire car ride home be silent because you don’t know what to say? Yeah, that probably happened a lot here. Continue reading

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Star Wars Original Trilogy — MOVIE REVIEW

Possibly the most iconic moment in cinematic history.

So I decided to finally getting around to watching the films everyone has been talking about since I was a kid. Star Wars. These movies have been cultural phenomenons for decades. Countless references get made to these films in movies and TV shows we watch today. I had attempted to watch these movies a long time ago, but I only got through a portion of the first one. I remembered nothing from it later on. Years later, I attempted to watch Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and was turned off to Star Wars in general. I was not a fan of the first installment of the new trilogy, so I never had to the slightest desire to go back and watch the originals. Well, that changed and I finally watched them all. In one day. I am not going to go in-depth with the story of each one of these. They have been out for over 30 years now. If you don’t know the story, then I’m sorry but that’s your problem. I will just give a brief overlook on my thoughts of each one. And yeah, if you haven’t seen these movies yet, there will be loads of spoilers here.

So…let’s get started. Continue reading

Edge of Tomorrow — MOVIE REVIEW

Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow

I don’t know what sold me more on this movie. Tom Cruise or Emily Blunt. Neither of them had disappointed me when it comes to them starring in sci-fi movies as of yet. Tom Cruise was 2 for 2 in his sci-fi films. And Emily Blunt was 1 1/2 out of 2 in hers. I personally liked Oblivion and absolutely loved Minority Report. And when it came to Emily Blunt, I was a big fan of Looper and I kind of liked The Adjustment Bureau. But I saw Doug Liman’s name attached to direct this movie and I started to worry. The guy who did Mr. and Mrs. Smith is doing a science fiction movie? I was not excited. But the story had me hooked. It came off as a combination of Elysium and Source Code. Whether that was a good thing or a bad thing had remained to be seen. But how did this movie fare? Continue reading
