Looking Forward: 2013 films

Image
The new year starts the anticipation for the new films it brings. While some of the film release dates are unknown as of this time, here is my list of what I'm looking forward to as of this writing.


Iron Man 3 - A favorite series of mine, and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment. While they are changing things up a bit with the tone of the movie and going a much darker route, we finally get to see Mandarin in an Iron Man movie, played by Ben Kingsly. Looking to up the action and drama from 2 , Iron Man 3 should be a winner in my book.


Pain and Gain - A Michael Bay movie starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Mark Wahlberg? I'm sold! The plot seems promising: a group of body builders are caught up in an extortion ring  where they ripped off a millionaire and their plan is coming back to bite them in the ass. From the trailers it looked like Wahlberg and Johnson have chemistry together. so I cant wait to see how it turns out. .

Film Review: Season of The Witch

Image
Season of the Witch is an interesting example of a movie that tries a little too much in some areas and not enough in others.Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman star as the two knights, Behmen and Felson in this fairly decent Fantasy/ Action film. Most people would write it off at first glance, but is it worth a second look?

Plot:

The plot of the film is pretty basic. The knights Behmaen and Felson are tasked with leading a group transporting a prisoner accused of practicing witchcraft to a monastery to be judged guilty or innocent.

 The plot wasn't bad considering how basic it was, and the fact that it dealt with the plague made it more interesting. It could have tweaked a few things here or there to keep it interesting all the way through , specifically in the middle of the film , but over all not bad..

Things really picked up in the last 40 minutes , so the conclusion more than made up for the one or two dull bits , which were less than 10 minutes total.

Acting:

The acting was the d…

Best Films of 2012

Image
The year 2012 saw many great movies. We saw old  franchises return , new ones launch and some surprise hits.Here is the list of my favorite movies of 2012.


The Watch - Most people wrote this film off as a real stinker of a movie, and I strongly disagree with that. While it might not be your conventional comedy where it appeals to everyone, it is most certainly a guys film. This is the kind of movie you watch when hanging out with the guys and just want to shut the brain down and enjoy yourself for a few hours.



Men in Black 3 - As a huge fan of the Men in Black series, I was excited as soon as I heard the series would return. After hearing they were shooting without a finished script and that the plot would involve time travel I was skeptical to say the least. Once I saw the final product I can say that I'm satisfied with it as a fan. It does what a sequel should do, progressed the story and brought back the characters we know and  love.
