"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1" Is the Best Adaptation So Far

Where's Bill Condon? Take a bow. I read all the "Twilight" books before the films were released and "Breaking Dawn" was my least favorite from the bunch. Maybe it was because I expected something more and was let down, but after seeing the latest adaptation I would like to shake director Bill Condon's hand. I figured "Breaking Dawn" would be the worst out of the films because the book was long and drawn out. I was pleasantly surprised to see the key moments from the book come to life on the screen. All the boring moments were taken away and new ones were added perfectly.

The film begins with Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward's (Robert Pattinson) wedding and then the tasteful honeymoon. The emotion that was missing from the previous films were present. Bella no longer grabs her hair and huffs into a corner. She is a young woman with a personality we were waiting to see. Once Bella learns she's pregnant, the film takes a horrifying approach. For one who has not read the novels will actually find themselves wondering what will happen next. Jacob (Taylor Lautner) is still in love with Bella, but the back and forth triangle is over. Jacob adds comic relief and has grown into his own role as a werewolf. The film has a perfect cliffhanger to keep us all wondering if "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2" will live up to its expections. We will have to wait until November 16, 2012.

"Men in Black 3" Trailer

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back in "Men in Black 3." This time around Agent J gets to time travel and learn more about a young Agent K (played by Josh Brolin). The film is slated for a Memorial Day weekend release.

"A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas" Brings Raunchy Holiday Cheer

In the tradition of raunchy holiday films such as "Bad Santa" and "A Christmas Story," Harold and Kumar have joined the list. The pot-smoking duo have grown up, well sort of, and are now leading different lives away from each other. Harold is a top business man who is married and ready to start a family. Kumar dropped out of medical school and has a pregnant ex-girlfriend. Faith brings the old friends back together as they journey through New York City in search of the perfect Christmas tree. It would not be a Harold and Kumar film without trouble and Neil Patrick Harris. The 3D effects are fun, but not visually amazing. Overall, "A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas" is the perfect film to escape to while the kids and relatives are shopping during the holiday season.

"Snow White and the Huntsman" Teaser Trailer

What an interesting take on the Snow White fairy tale. The all star cast includes Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman. The film is slated to come out during the 2012 summer season.

The Cat is Back in "Puss in Boots"

"Puss in Boots" finally shines light upon the cat. Over the years, I found myself wondering if cats would ever be viewed as heroes in the world of film. They are always portrayed as evil, cunning creatures who work for the villain. Dogs are the ones who are loyal, respectful and never do anything wrong. Well, Hollywood should invest in cats because they can surprise people.

"Puss in Boots" is a 3D visual treat. There are times when you may find yourself reaching for the screen trying to pet Puss. In the latest adventure, the audience learns how Puss (Antonio Banderas) received his famous boots. Puss leads the life of a fugitive until he meets Kitty Softpaws (Salma Hayek). She convinces Puss to help her and his old friend Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis) find the magic beans which will lead them to the Golden Goose. The only problem is they have to get past Jack (Billy Bob Thornton) and Jill (Amy Sedaris).

This is the perfect film for cat lovers as it pokes fun of common cat behaviors. Hopefully the cat will continue to gain respect in Hollywood and move away the evil, lazy and manipulative stereotypes.

"The Rum Diary" Dies Before it Begins

Johnny Depp is the king of odd roles. "The Rum Diary" is based off of the novel by Hunter S. Thompson, which is about Paul Kemp (Depp) who moves to San Juan, Puerto Rico during the 1950's to work for a daily newspaper. At first, the newspaper is just another job to Paul until the rum gets in the way. Kemp eventually learns that the newspaper and Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart) want to continue to Americanize Puerto Rico instead of discussing the real issues at hand.

The film is extremely awkward from Depp walking around in his boxers after a rough night to his attempt to seduce Chenault (Amber Heard). Now, maybe that's how Depp wanted Paul to be, but his acting was off. Depp is one of the most amazing actors of this generation, but when his other characters pop out into different roles it doesn't make the character believable.

"The Rum Diary" isn't a complete lost. Paul has tons of drunken escapades and learns about cock fighting. Those parts will keep the audience engaged.

Overall, once the end credits roll there will be someone who will say- "That film was awkward."

“Real Steel:” An Electrifying, Powerful, Emotional Film

It’s nice to know there are still movies today that will make you jump out of your chair and cheer. There are those few movies like “Rocky,” which give us hope for the underdog as we watch him beat the odds. “Real Steel” is one of those movies.

Charlie Kenton (Hugh Jackman) is a washed up boxer who’s trying to make a living off of robot fighting. His cocky nature allows him to make quick decisions, which costs him his creditability. Later, he finds out that he may be responsible for his eleven year old son, who he has never met. After a quick business deal, Charlie takes his son Max (Dakota Goyo) in for the summer. Unlike Charlie, Max has patience and tries to help his father with his robot fighting escapades. Max ends up finding his own robot, Atom, in a junk yard. Atom is a Generation 2, which no one would consider fighting. Max doesn’t give up and continues to prove to Charlie that you have to fight for someone or something you love.

The film is powerful as it shows the bond between father and son grow. Atom is the missing link, he brings Charlie and Max together as Charlie learns that you have to work to become something.

“Real Steel” is exciting, energetic and will have you at your feet at the end credits. I highly recommend going to see this film in the theatre.

New Poster for "The Rum Diary"

What a great poster! It makes the audience wonder about the film and it doesn't have a cheesy close up of an air brushed actor or actress. Check out Johnny Depp in "The Rum Diary" scheduled for October 28.

New Trailer for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 1"

What I like about all the "Twilight" films is that they are all visually stunning. The scenery is so crisp and clean. "Breaking Dawn" seems to be following the same course. The film also looks pretty decent since the final book lacks in some areas. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 1" is set to release on November 18. What do you think about the trailer?

Endangered Snakes!

I decided to type "endangered snakes" into Google not expecting there to be any, but there are four snakes that are currently endangered.

1) The San Francisco Garter Snake (picture 1)
2) Eastern Indigo Snake (picture 2)
3) The King Cobra (picture 3)
4) Dumeril's Boa (picture 4)

Snakes are not evil creatures. Most snakes will slither away when a human approaches. Some will provide a warning sign, for example a rattlesnake will shake its rattle when someone is near. Don't kill these creatures because you think it may be harmful. Leave the snake alone and it will leave you alone. Also take time to edcuate yourself on snakes because it may come in handy.

Adopt an Amur Leopard

The Amur Leopard is on the top of critically endangered species! Please help the World Wildlife Fund and adopt one today!

First look at Henry Cavill as Superman

Once again, I'm not impressed. Zack Snyder is a visionary so I'm hoping he can reinvent Superman for a new generation. 

First look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman

I'm not impressed with the first image of Christopher Nolan's Catwoman. I hope he's keeping all the good stuff for later and that Anne Hathaway will be able to break her Disney image.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" Trailer

It's interesting that this reboot will be released around the 10 year anniversary of the first Spider-Man film from 2002. I know everyone is excited because this Spidey film is following the comics, but we know the back story already. This reboot doesn't make sense to me and the trailer isn't appealing. If I see it and its good...I'll admit it.

"The Dark Knight Rises" Trailer

Yes! This is the only reboot I'm okay with in Hollywood. My only concern is I hope there aren't too many villains in this final film. We saw what happened with Spider-Man 3...

"Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" Trailer

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law were superb in the first film. I hope the sequel will exceed my expectations.

"The Thing" 2011 Trailer

Well, this doesn't look like a prequel to me. This looks like a remake of the original 1982 film starring Kurt Russell. Oh Hollywood...I'm losing faith in you.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" Brings History to Life

Everyone knows I'm a huge "Pirates" fan. I knew the film would be different and I was ready for it. I had to remind myself not to compare "On Stranger Tides" to the previous ones. I will admit, I missed components from the other films. There were times when I was waiting for Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom to pop up. I missed Jack's infamous entrance and the crew of the Black Pearl. God, I missed the Pearl. On the bright side, Rob Marshall brought new components on board that made the film shine.

In this film, Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself without a ship and forced on the Queen Anne's Revenge by his former love, Angelica (Penelope Cruz). He must lead Blackbeard to the Fountain of Youth. Now, I thought Penelope would be an awesome pirate, but she did not appeal to me. I wanted to see a woman more ruthless, cunning and independent than Angelica. Instead, she's the first mate of her father's ship. What if she had her own ship? That would've blown Jack's mind!

My favorite part of history class was learning about Blackbeard, Ponce de Leon and the Fountain of Youth. I loved that the new "Pirates" introduced these historical legends. Ian McShane killed it as Blackbeard. He looked the part and also played the evil pirate as he was described in the history books.

Another new addition were mermaids. These mermaid are nothing like Ariel. They are "devil fish" and will lure men to their deaths. Syrena (Astrid Berges- Frisbey) is captured in order to activate the Fountain. The mermaids were okay, but not amazing.

Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) is back, but under different circumstances. Remember never trust a pirate.

Overall, the film is fun and adventurous. These films still have the ablitiy to make people think and Jack Sparrow will still have everyone questioning his actions until the end.

The First Official Poster for "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"

I like it. The red symbolizes the need for blood in life and in death. It also foreshadows Bella's rebirth into a new life.

"Fast Five" A Man's Fairy Tale

As a woman I love to see a happy ending. The girl gets the guy and she has an eye for fashion. So, what's a man's ideal fairy tale? Well, it includes fast cars, guns, bombs, women's butts and boobs, men the size of Godzilla fighting and the underdog achieving acceptance in an unknown world. "Fast Five" is an example of the "man fairy tale."
For a sequel, it wasn't too bad. This time the team gets together to break a drug lord, but they also have to deal with a federal agent (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson). The film keeps audiences on the edge of their seats to the end, which leaves them wanting more action and answers. The best part of the film is seeing the crew from past films. So, here are the top three reasons to check out this man fairy tale:
3) The cars. It's the whole reason why audiences still love this franchise. There's plenty of car races and chases for all.
2) The fight scene between Dominic (Vin Diesel) and Luke (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) is like watching wrestling, but with a little more edge. Every man in the theatre probably had a sense of awe as the Godzilla's fought.
1) Will Paul Walker's character finally receive acceptance from his new world? Go see the film!

"SCRE4M" Takes a Stabbing New Twist

Did you know that the inspiration behind Ghostface was the painting by Edvard Munch titled "The Scream?" Munch describes his inspiration for the painting in his diary titled Nice 22.01.1892:

"I was walking along a path with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the

sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence –

there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an

infinite scream passing through nature."

Sounds pretty creepy and the start of a psycho killer. I expected "SCRE4M" to follow the original stereotypical horror crap that's out in the dying genre today. Wes Craven proved me wrong and also put a spin on the "crap" that's out in the world today.

The film begins with a solid and shocking opening that brings in the new generation of Woodsboro killings. Sidney (Neve Campbell), Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox) return as they find themselves in a new blood bath. The new generation of kids Jill (Emma Roberts), Kirby (Hayden Panettierre) etc.. all bring us back to 1996 when we first met Sidney and her friends. There's the good girl, the bad girl, the dumb girl, the odd boyfriend and the geeks. So who's the killer?

Craven's twist is taking a stab at the mockery around remakes. Every great horror film as been remade from "Halloween" to Craven's own "A Nightmare on Elm Street." The killer is trying to remake the original killings for his own fame. This new Ghostface adds Facebook, cameras and cell phones to his resume instead of landlines. The old rules don't apply anymore because anyone can die at anytime. This Ghostface does not only stab, but he cuts and applies torture to his victims. He's well educated in his horror films. According to Ghostface, "Psycho" did not start the slasher film sub-genre it was "Peeping Tom." Both films were released in 1960, but "Peeping Tom" beat "Psycho" by three months.

If you enjoyed the first three films, then this one will be a treat. Remember one thing- "The first rule of a remake is don't F@#$ with the original."

"Abduction" Trailer

Watch out world, here comes Taylor Lautner the new action star! It actually looks really good. I may have to check this one out!

Johnny Depp and Martin Scorsese??

Apparently, Johnny Depp is in Martin Scorsese's new 3D picture called "The Invention of Hugo Cabret." He is supposed to be a producer, but it looks like he may have a cameo as a street artist. I'm thrilled to see Depp part of the Scorsese world. They are both talented and should have worked together sooner.

New "The Hangover: Part II" Poster

I don't know what's scarier- the monkey or the wolfpack. I'm looking forward to this one and I hope it lives up to the original. What about you?

New "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" Poster

Finally, the end is near. I'm over "Harry Potter," but I will say the poster is pretty cool. What do you think?

New "Captain America" Trailer

I don't have a desire to see this film. I don't care for Chris Evans and it doesn't look that appealing. Who knows, maybe it will surprise me. What do you think?

Losing A Legend: Elizabeth Taylor

On March 23, we lost one of the last of Hollywood's golden talent. Elizabeth Taylor died from congestive heart failure. She was 79.

Elizabeth Taylor was beautiful, but she was also an incredible actress. My first encounter with one of Taylor's films was in my Literature and Film class. We were studying Tennessee Williams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." I remember thinking to myself that she was the first woman that could carry a lead role. I felt like she stole the spotlight from Paul Newman. She was never overpowered by her leading men as she could always hold her own.

A few years later, I saw "Cleopatra." The role was made for her and anyone who thinks of Cleopatra thinks of Taylor. Her sex appeal, fashion and makeup made her the first million dollar actress. Sadly, I have not seen all of Taylor's films, but I'm eager to see "BUtterfield 8" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" which are the two films that she won an Academy Award for.

She will be missed as I believe there's no one in Hollywood like her.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

"Rango" Saddles Up For Success

In a world that is obsessed with 3D animation, I wondered if Johnny Depp's new flick "Rango" would survive. The film is now the top film of the year. So what made people go see this new take on the wild wild west?

It's not in 3D. Not every film has to be in 3D. I thought "Rango" was one of the best animated films I've seen in a long time. The precision and expertise to get each scene perfect is noticeable. Gore Verbinski used emotion capture to create the film opposed to having each cast member speak behind a microphone. Basically, he had the cast act out the film. The use of emotion capture is present because the characters are more realistic and human.

I read a few reviews that said the story lacked heart. In the west, people fought for money. In Rango's world its water, which is needed to persevere. It's a story about a chameleon who (ironically) can change into anyone he wants to be, but in turn finds his true self. It's witty, different and yes it has heart. Anyone who has an imagination will find a connection with this film.

New Banner for "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

We all know I'm excited for this one!

Five Reasons to Give "Just Go With It" A Chance

Many may think Adam Sandler makes the same kind of movies, which usually involve a man having a midlife crisis. But I was quite surprised with "Just Go With It." Here are my five reasons to give this movie a shot.

5) Adam Sandler is funny. He may make some of the same jokes, but in this film he is refreshingly funny.

4) The new term for having to poop-"going to have a Devlin."

3) Nicole Kidman and Dave Matthews were excellent. Who knew they could actually be funny. It was nice to see a serious actress like Nicole Kidman in a comedy.

2) The kids played by Baliee Madison and Griffin Gluck bring more comedy with their blackmailing approach.
1) The chemistry between Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. They are so good and work so well together that I just couldn't wait for them to fall in love.

"Tangled" is Twisted Fun

Remember the magic and excitement that surrounded old Disney animated features? I remember the singing and the fun sidekicks. I remember falling in love with the story and the scenery. The last good Disney animated feature was "The Lion King" and after that they all seemed to fade away as Pixar progressed. In 2009, "The Princess and the Frog" finally brought back the old Disney flame.

When I went to see Disney's 50th animated feature "Tangled" based off of Rapunzel, I was sure it was going to be boring. I was wrong.

From beginning to end, you are pulled into Flynn Rider and Rapunzel's world. Rapunzel yearns for freedom and a chance to see the world away from her tower. She finds her freedom and dreams in Flynn. The music is wonderful thanks to Alan Menken, who is no stranger to Disney fairy tales. It is a wonderful hearting warming story for all ages and is beautiful in 3D. I highly recommend going to see "Tangled."

New Pic from "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn"

Well here's Isle of Esme. I pictured it brighter and not full of fog. What do you think?
