My Thoughts:

I haven't seen this one since I was a kid... and I must say I remember it being better then this, Not that this was a bad film... I enjoyed it very much, It is just slower then I was thinking and there was scenes I was remembering that wasn't here. I think I was combining this one and it's sequel in my head. But this one is well worth the time put in to watch. Recommended.

I just started watching X-Men Apocalypse yesterday. I have another half an hour to go. But so far I am disappointed. Uninteresting villain. The movie seems to disrespect the old X-Men movies chronology completely. But there are some nice scenes. I think with another villain it would have been quite good. E.g. have Eric be the main villain.
Funny lines were there were discussing the classic Star Wars trilogy. The second is the best, says one of them (I think Nightcrawler as he was in the second X-Men movie). Then the other says, that the first one is best, because without it, there wouldn't have been a second one. An then Jean Grey says, that the third movie in a trilogy seems always be the worst. Hinting that the third was the one where their butchered her storyline. But what I was thinking is, that their discussion is also valid for this new X-men trilogy.

My Thoughts:

First let me say I have never been a fan of Hugh Grant... there is something about him that has just always bugged me.But I have liked Sarah Jessica Parker for years... first seeing her in the the early '80s TV series Square Pegs.

This film... while entertaining wasn't the best romantic comedy I ever seen. There was things about both characters I didn't like. Though mostly with him. But over all an entertaining film I can see myself watching again.

Maleficent (2014/United States, United Kingdom)

Buena Vista Home Entertainment (United States)
Director:Robert Stromberg
Writing:Linda Woolverton (Screenwriter), Charles Perrault (Original Material By)
Length:97 min.
Video:Widescreen 2.40:1

Stars:

Elle Fanning as Aurora
Sharlto Copley as Stefan
Lesley Manville as Flittle
Imelda Staunton as Knotgrass

Plot:
Explore the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain in this wickedly fun twist on the classic Sleeping Beauty. In an unforgiving mood after a neighboring kingdom threatens her forest, Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) places an irrevocable curse on the king's newborn daughter, the Princess Aurora. But as the child grows, Maleficent finds herself becoming fond of the girl. And as the conflict between the two realms intensifies, Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land. Journey beyond the fairy tale in this soaring adventure that is "visually arresting, brilliantly designed" (Andrew Barker, Variety).

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Bonus Trailers
  • Deleted Scenes

My Thoughts:

I found this to be a good and interesting take on the story. Though I must admit that I was limited on knowledge of the story to start with. I must say the visual effects was good and story easily kept my attention. I thought that Angelina Jolie did a great job as the title character. Actually I think everyone did well. For me the downside to this one is that the 3 fairies that took care of Aurora were a bit silly and aggravating to watch. But over all well worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

OK... what did I watch here? This one is definitely only for those that have fond memories of the '60s Adam West TV series... which I did watch as a kid. So this one does have a touch of nostalgia for me... but at the same time not as it is a new film. Just made in the way of the old series. Right down to 3 of the series stars doing voices for this animated film.I felt this one to be hilariously awful. But for those that don't know or didn't like the '60s it would just be plain awful. This film made me realize just how much I prefer the modern animated Batman movies!

The Back-up Plan (2010/United States)
Trailer |IMDb |Wikipedia |

Director:Alan Poul
Writing:Kate Angelo (Writer)
Length:104 min.

But after a string of Mr. Wrongs, Zoe commits to her back-up plan: an appointment with a specialist and a solo flight into motherhood. But Zoe's plan proves far from foolproof when moments after her procedure she is swept up into a whirlwind romance with Stan (Alex O'Loughlin), the man of her dreams. Can Zoe hide her pregnancy until Stan is ready for the truth? Or will the truth send him packing? The Back-up Plan is a hilarious romantic comedy about courtship, love, marriage and parenthood – but not necessarily in that order!

My Thoughts:

i enjoyed this one quite a bit. It has a fun story line and there is a few cast members here that I am familiar with. The main male lead Alex O'Laughlin I know from a few different TV series... currently Hawaii 5-0. Then for a blast from the past... Tom Bosley from Happy Days and Linda Lavin from Alice are both in this one as well. While like most romantic comedies I found this to be highly on the predictable side...there is a lot of fun moments leading up to what you know is coming. I found it to be well worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I liked the strong female lead character. Though I will say it isn't quite the movie I was expecting...I somehow had the misconception that this was a Mulan type film with her going to fight a war. But I found the film to be a lot of fun to watch... I really got a kick out of her 3 little brothers. This one is well worth the time put in to watch it.

While it took a bit to get me into the story once I did I was hooked and couldn't look away. This is one I feel confident about recommending.

I don't know if it is meant to be... but it felt like this film could easily fit in with the Harry Potter universe. I definitely recommend this one... well worth the time put in to watch it.
