Holy crap it has been almost two months since my last post, so lets bust one out now. If any of you know me, you know that I am a movie buff. I quote movies, enjoy watching all types and love to watch some over and over. Typically, I enjoy scary or thriller movies but I do enjoy comedies, some dramas but most of all the animated movies!
Here is a preview and a list of movies that are coming out in March that I hope to get a seat in the theater for – some to drag my babe Angel Hesseltine to as well:
Dead Man Down
Coming out March 8, Dead Man Down stars Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace – this is going to be an action packed movie. Based in New York City, a crime lord’s best man gets seduced by one of the boss’ victims seeking vengeance.
Rated ‘R’ for violence, excessive foul language and a scene of sexuality, I bet it was from more of the violence and guns that actually gave this film an ‘R’ rating, I’m sure it will be another faced paced gun shootout movie.
Oz the Great and Powerful
Also coming out March 8, Oz the Great and Powerful is a PG movie that should be child friendly. Though I am sure there will be a few scenes that will be ‘a bit off’ as far as reality goes, I’m sure it will be okay for the little ones to understand.
Starring Mila Kunis and James Franco as Oz, this movie is about a small-time magician with more undesired personal ethics who arrives in a magical land and must decide if he will be a good man or a great one.
The ABC’s of Death
This is definitely one that Angel will not see with me, not in theaters, not from Blockbuster, not from Redbox, and probably never. If I am ever going to get her to watch a scary movie with me, it wont be about children – which is completely understandable because we have two children and another on the way. Having her see a movie with a cover that looks like this one, when she is 7 months prego, probably isn’t the best thing for her (or me).
Only getting a 5.3 out of a possible 10 stars in IMDB.com, I cant say this is going to be a great movie – but it is a scary movie and I will enjoy it none-the-less. Showcasing death in all of its vicious wonder and brutal beauty; inspired by children's educational ABC books, the motion picture is comprised of 26 individual chapters, each by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet. I cant imagine watching 26 short films with 26 different plots about death would be worthy of my $9.50 movie ticket so I will probably be waiting until this hits Redbox.
This is the movie I have been waiting for since January after we first saw previews on tv. This movie looks great, not to mention that I truly enjoy the animated movies (speaking of, we went to see Rise of the Guardians yesterday with Janet Amado and Xochitl Amado). With big personalities like Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone playing some of the character voices, I’m sure the narrative will be great.
Not the first stab at a prehistoric comedy flick but it just may be one of the first animated versions, this comedy adventure that follows the world's first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures -- and their outlook is changed forever.
This is probably not going to be the best film ever made but it definitely appeals to a the young adolescent style of audience. Based around four girls (Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine) who want to go on spring break and don’t have the cash, they develop a plan to rob a store to gain the funds they need to go on vacation. Little do they know they await a not so pleasant surprise of the cops pulling them into jail, even worse, a local drug dealer bails them out and puts them to work with some of his dirty work.
Rated R for strong sexual content, language, nudity, drug use and violence throughout the film, this one is sure to bring high school boys to the theater to see these four beauties partying in their two piece bikinis. I just wonder how dirty they get with James Franco as the main male character with support of Gucci Mane.
G.I. Joe: Retaliation
I don’t know about you but I thought G.I. Joe 1 & 2 were pretty damn good – and I know the ladies liked them because of the whole fact of Channing Tatum is the star. Females just love that guy, I think he has a chocolate covered strawberry penis that makes the women all go crazy over him.
With mentions of the G.I. Joe’s being framed for crimes against the country, the team is terminated by the President's order, and the surviving team members face off against Zartan, his accomplices, and the world leaders he has under his influence. This Joe flick stars yes, Channing Tatum but also Bruce Willis and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson should be another box office hit!
The Place Beyond the Pines
Getting 8 out of 10 stars on IMDB.com, this film based around a motorcycle stunt rider who turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
Bradley Cooper (who is slowly becoming one of my favorite actors) stars along side Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendez and Ray Liotta in this feature film which caught my eye because of motorcycle stunts and bank robberies. This film wont be my first choice to see in the theaters but is definitely one I cannot wait for Redbox to release.
