22 Jump Street — MOVIE REVIEW

PRETTY MUCH IDENTICAL TO THE FIRST MOVIE, BUT THEY KNOW IT AND ROLL WITH IT.

Jonah Hill, Ice Cube (and his “cube of ice”), and Channing Tatum in 22 Jump Street.

When I first heard that they were making a sequel to 21 Jump Street, I was annoyed. I didn’t want them to ruin a good thing and even paint the first one in a bad light if they blew it. But, I can safely say that this sequel is just as fun as the first one. And that is completely due to the two main actors, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Kick-Ass 2 — MOVIE REVIEW

Jim Carrey and Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Kick-Ass 2.

I have to be honest. When it was announced that they were making a sequel to Kick-Ass, I was pumped. Well, at the time, it was titled “Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall.” But they ended up changing that to the basic title they finished with.

Muppets Most Wanted — MOVIE REVIEW

I’m not a Muppets fan, to be clear. I saw The Muppets with Jason Segel and Amy Adams and I loved it. That is kind of the known fact about the Muppets. They kind of did a revamp when they made that film. People were claiming that if you never even liked the Muppets, that the movie would make you either fall in love for the first time or all over again. And I found this fact to be true. With brilliant songs like “Man or Muppet”, The Muppets sold me and made me fall in love with them. Now we get Muppets Most Wanted. We still have Nicholas Stoller on with a writing credit, but we are without Amy Adams and Jason Segel. They are replaced by new characters and a new plot, bringing in comedic geniuses Ricky Gervais (UK’s “The Office”) and Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) to take center stage. How did the sequel match up?
