Unfinished Business (2015)



When I saw the trailer for Unfinished Business, I said to myself The Internship was barely watchable how good can this movie be? And honestly it was pretty fun to watch. With that said it’s a total guy flick, don’t think many women would like it, a lot of penis jokes and boobs on screen. Just so you guys can get an idea, here are some quotes that from the movie “are boners not allowed” “his penis touched my face” “call me Tony Stark with an iron cock”.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015)



Well, it’s hard to make a sequel, very few are exceptions and this is not an exception. If you haven’t seen the first one, you should see it, it’s better than this one. If you’re afraid that you won’t understand the whole plot of the movie, this line should sum it up nicely “Why did here when you can die there”. That’s basically it, a group of elderly people move to a retirement home in India. In the first movie, everyone had their own demons and as the movie progresses they deal with them and learn that no matter how old you are life keeps on going (until you die).

Chappie (2015)



A movie about a being with artificial intelligence that realizes the value of life, considering that it has a very short life span, sounds very familiar doesn’t it? If you haven’t watched Blade Runner (1982) stop reading and start watching! Chappie just looks like a badly made fan film. I’m not saying that the movie ripped off Blade Runner but it is heavily influenced by it.

The Lazarus Effect (2015)



Well, predictable has a new face and it’s called The Lazarus Effect. Throughout the movie I was just screaming “surprise me” but I was disappointed. If you’re like me and watched a lot of horror movies then you’ll be disappointed too. The story itself is convoluted, I get what they were trying to do at the end but I doubt your average movie goer gets it, adding to the confusion they bring in a new twist at the end which is uncalled for.

Focus (2015)



Well, predictable has a new face and it’s called The Lazarus Effect. Throughout the movie I was just screaming “surprise me” but I was disappointed. If you’re like me and watched a lot of horror movies then you’ll be disappointed too. The story itself is convoluted, I get what they were trying to do at the end but I doubt your average movie goer gets it, adding to the confusion they bring in a new twist at the end which is uncalled for. I wish they made the dog the bad guy that would have been awesome.

The DUFF (2015)



Another movie about high school politics, it pretty much follows the standard template; not so popular awkward looking girl wants to be popular, fall in love with the school jock, redefines herself with an ending speech or narration. Only new thing is the introduction of the word DUFF which stands for Designated Ugly Fat Friend.

Still Alice (2014)



This movie is driven by the amazing acting of Julianne Moore. Such a terrific job, the way she delivers every line is awesome, her timing is just fantastic. An amazing story about overcoming grief, supporting family and love, here’s the story; Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a linguistic professor, mother of three and wife to John Howland (Alec Baldwin).

Birdman (2014)



Wow, some amazing actors and some amazing acting. The entire movie is like a venture into the mind of an actor, if you like acting or if you’re an actor you’ll love this movie. There are some things I didn’t like, like the fact that they used a single camera shot or made the whole movie appear to be one consecutive shot, it’s an interesting idea but for me the camera itself can be used to tell a story and that was just taken away in this movie.

McFarland, USA (2015)



So, Disney makes another sports movie inspired by true events, what else is new? Well, it’s pretty much the same as every other stuff they made of this genre, true story, some funny stuff, and the works. What makes this movie different? It concentrates on another minority, Mexican Americans. I’ll admit the movie did show a peek into the Mexican American culture (by which I mean a fraction of an isolated community) but other than that it stuck pretty much to “the formula”.

Seventh Son (2014)



Well it’s different, set in a world where witches and warlocks transform into mythical creatures. Didn’t care much for the protagonist, didn’t know who the protagonist was, from the story it looked like Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) but Master Gregory (Jeff Bridges) also had a big role, they were constantly juggling between their stories. Didn’t like Jeff Bridges portrayal of Master Gregory especially when he spoke, there was a lot of lips involved which was kind of weird. Julianne Moore as Mother Malkin didn’t make any sense.
