Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)

6 bucks well spent. Thoroughly enjoyed the ride. It was good to see Brad Bird do well with live actors. We already know he can do well with stories (The Incredibles - The Iron Giant - Ratatouille). I think the biggest turn for 4 is making Cruise work with a team, in the sense it's not all about him. The other characters held equal balance here and made this a very engaging flick.

A must see.

Cabin In The Woods

OK, that was different. Very different.  I knew that going in, I just didn't know what to expect. The best way I can put it, is, it's a mash-up of several different genre's. I really can't describe it, because one, it's hard to describe ( I can only imagine what they must of done to sell this to the studio's), but two, I don't want to give away spoilers. Talking about any of it would give up the fun ride.

I liked it because, you have no idea what is going to happen next. And Cabin In The Woods takes so many twists and turns and liberties, you just have to hold on tight and hope you don't get lost in the maze.

There was actually quite a bit of humor thrown in. An amazing balance of terror, gore, sexiness, and unpredictability.

It is a thinking movie, but it does tread a thin line of absurdity and believability.

Bottom line... it entertains.

I recommend seeing it.

This guy Jeremy Jahns does somewhat what I was trying to say and not give away spoilers.

Prometheus



Finally.... worth waiting for... like I had a choice  :P

I believe it lives up to the hype. I wasn't disappointed in any way. Not perfect, but dayum near. I won't give away any spoilers but this spin control of trying to say it's not a prequel to Alien... well, I guess we need to discuss what prequel means.

Many scary and disturbing scenes. Lots of surprises as well. We did see the 3D version. That was done well, but honestly there's only a few scenes where it truly becomes immersive. The sets were spectacular. The characters.... well some were outstanding, but several were completely background noise.

Excellent use of sound. I'm sure Ridley Scott made sure that was all part of what he wanted to bring to the screen.

It's interesting to see how the movie get to the image above. I believe that was the core seed of thought for Ridley Scott. Who, why, when and what were the space jockey's doing?

See it on the big screen. And then buy it when it comes out on DVD. I'm sure it will still be just as effective on the small screen.

Noon show.... about 20-30 people. I still think our B&B is a hidden treasure. If though it's been there awhile, it's not the go to place... yet.

The Guilt Trip

Despite not fond of paying theater money to go see drama or comedy, this was a fun movie to watch. Get out of the cold, away from the crowds. Barbara and Seth have chemistry as the strained out son and the over-bearing Jewish mother. What really made this was the consistent comedy throughout. It didn't bolt out of the gate and then lose steam. It just stayed funny.

I know the movie deliberately pulls at the heart strings, but that's OK. The end is a beautiful little twist I didn't see coming and just wrapped things up nicely.

Definitely recommend. It will appeal to all ages, men and women.

Oblivion

Oblivion is the current Sci-Fi Post apocalyptic action film starring Tom Cruise from the director Joseph Kosinski, who provided the sequel Tron: Legacy. Written by Kosinski, this is a well thought out, mind bending story. I donít want to talk too much about the story because itís all tightly woven together with elements that would spoil the initial viewing. Kosinski expertly leads you down a story that slowly reveals the secrets, to the final punch at the end. This is a thinking manís story, because it does not spoon feed the answers. The sets and props are gorgeous where appropriate, the scenery is immense, and the action is well paced. A positively fun experience watching things unfold. I highly recommend Oblivion if you have any leanings toward action, sci-fi or a love story. Yes, the backbone is the immense love, that drives the characters to continue.

Next in line for Tom Cruise is yet another Sci-fi, from the graphic Novel, All You Need Is Kill.

Joseph Kosinski just announced, will be working on the 2nd sequel to Tron

Now, we will have to wait and see how two more Post apocalyptic films pan out this year. Elysium with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster and After Earth with Will and Jaden Smith

World War Z 3-1/2 stars

Letís say I was hesitant going into World War Z for many reasons. Mainly because it was PG-13 and that it would be a watered down version of what I should expect from a zombie flick. I was pleasantly surprised to be presented a fun entertaining, and at times, a tense film. This movie is really chopped up and which is not a big deal. It does involve locations all around the world, so thereís little time to spend time with the transisitons in scene changes. The pace was very good. It pretty much starts off with a bang and doesnít let up.

World War Z pretty much follows the 28 Days Later zombies. Itís more of infection than a return of the slow lumbering living dead. Some transitioning into zombies in about 12 seconds. I did have one issue. In their enthusiasm to present fast hordes of zombies, zombies somehow developed better than human actions. Leaping and running like superhuman. Having superhuman strength, etc. While it was subtle, it stood out to me.

The characters were all good, despite most of them being in the background. Brad Pitt and his wife stand out, the rest come and go.

There were plenty of tense scenes, but most we have seen before. I did roll my eyes at the clichť scene of protagonist who HAVE to sneak through and be super quiet to not alert the zombie horde. Well guess whatÖ yep, not once but 4 times accidentally make loud sounds. I get thatís little bit of script generates a lot of tense action, but itís been done time and time again.

Again, all minor annoyances, in the context of it all. At the end of the day, I was entertained. I wanted to see lots of wild action on the big screen and I got it. There really is no end to this movie, thus highly suggesting sequels. I will probably not go to the theater to see the sequels. Pitt has suggested there will be sequels and some folks think, they will incorporate more things from the book. Apparently very little was brought from the book for this flick.

I didn't realize this was PG-13. Ugh. Well, there is always the 'Director's Cut' that is sure to be on the DVD. Knock on wood.....
