Movie Night: Tomorrowland

Review:

Tomorrowland

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bound by a shared destiny, a teen bursting with scientific curiosity and a former boy-genius inventor embark on a mission to unearth the secrets of a place somewhere in time and space that exists in their collective memory.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think Tomorrowland will appeal to both young and old alike.

The older viewers who know Epcot and Tomorrowland's history with Disney will be interested because for those who know that Disney's original idea for a self governing futuristic city in Epcot and in space will be happy to see some of his ideas brought to life in a (very) small way.

For young viewers there is plenty of CGI as well as an exciting journey to take part of while inserting Disney's usual underlining hook / lesson for its family viewers which is that the world is what you make of it. Do/think bad you get bad as a result and it reflects on the world, do/think good and you can save the world through innovators of hope.

I personally enjoyed watching Tomorrowland because well... George Clooney. I'm not going to lie.

I thought Tomorrowland was a good movie and I think many others will as well. (Side note: Tim McGraw...  please stop acting.)

Movie Night: The Girlfriend Experience (2009)

Review:

The Girlfriend Experience (2009)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A drama set in the days leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, and centered on a high-end Manhattan call girl meeting the challenges of her boyfriend, her clients, and her work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

First off let me start by saying that this movie ... is horrible. Absolutely horrible. Epic fail horrible. Not that I'm all that surprised considering porn star Sasha Grey is the star in it. How am I not surprised that she left the industry around this time? (For anyone thinking that they're going to get great sex scenes out of this based on Grey's career style, don't bother. It has Cinemax grade interaction- less actually.)

Greys character Chelsea/Christine is so wrapped up in her own self importance that shes diluted herself into believing she is someone that she's not and in the process gets bashed by a critic for her "poor performance" and then let down by a client after she fools herself into falling into the same trap her own self made career is basically centered around.

All the while she struggles to balance a personal relationship with her live in boyfriend on the side and remain completely withdrawn and emotionless through almost the entire thing on both ends.

The worst part is the movie drags on for so long that you just want to scream for anything to happen or for it to just end already but if you're up for a film that will easily put you to sleep this is the one.

I have to admit that I'm not all that surprised that STARZ is going to be creating a Tv series based on this movie because there was a sort of potential for ... something in this movie that gets lost from the get go.

The whole double life escort/girlfriend thing could have been interesting but it all gets bogged down by the rest of everything that's going on, (Including the political discussion, blog notes, and interviews) I'm actually disappointed that this movie was so low budget and so poorly cast with its script because the underlining idea could have been a winner.

I do however look forward to seeing what STARZ does with the tv series this year when it releases. We shall see.

Movie Night: The Martian

Review:

The Martian

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Martian had a few ha moments not too many ha ha ones but there's some comedy relief woven in between all the long tedious scenes to lighten the mood.

If you suspend belief for a short while its easy enough to dismiss all the technical scenes that a few viewers might not buy into.

I enjoyed The Martian enough that I'm even tempted to read the book to see how it compares to the movie.

I enjoyed watching The Martian, and I enjoyed getting some of the old Matt Damon personality back which I haven't seen awhile which made me like the movie more.

The Martian has a good cast, a not so bad story line, and a decent climax build up even if it takes awhile to get to.

All in all The Martian is a good space film I think a lot of people will have a good time seeing.
