The Babadook 2014

Standard

The movie The Babadook is an Australian horror movie directed by Jennifer Kent and produced by Causeway films, casted by Essie Davis played as Amelia, Daniel Henshall, Tiffany Lyndall-Knight and Noah Wiseman played as Samuel. The movie is showed at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival last January 17, 2014 for critically acclaim but release last March 22, 2014 in the public cinema.

The movie has his original character and storyline but has some same plot, another boogeyman want to abduct a child, showing in his dream and the parents did not believe then showing to them and loves conquers all. The story also have a  connection with the psychological and depressing conflicts faced by a single mother whose son’s birth is ruin by tragic death of her husband  and the whole story of the Babadook creature, causing an unresolved outcome, can be considered traumatic event. The acting is definitely good of the cast, although the supporting characters are missing something.

The sets and where the movie was made are connected to the story, some creepy, lonely place, and the sound and colour effects did the job. Got his original boogeyman but something is missing maybe lack of details in the Babadook character, his like a man in coat. The movie is really adaptable; you can easily understand the movie without leaving any question or mystery. The movie has its great points and that is the great acting and convincing performance of the cast, Essie Davis played as Amelia delivers great emotional and distractive performance. Amelia tried so hard to raise Samuel, her “out-of-control” six year old son. A son she finds hard to love after the tragically death of her husband six years ago. Samuel’s dreams are stained by a monster he believes is coming to kill them.

“Mister Babadook” is a creepy story book that Samuel believed holds a creature in his dream. In time the Babadook slowly begins to show its self to Amelia and convincing her that his son’s dream is real. Watching this movie gives me the creeps, it makes my hair in stand with fear, and I even hide for some times. A new horror character and never before seen in your life will haunt you in your sleep. I recommend this movie to be watch and be frightened. I’ll definitely include this film in my spooky list. Do not say I did not warn you.

Standard

Blended-2014-Movie-Stills-WallpapersThe movie is a romantic comedy film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. Frank Coraci directed the film and Clare Sera and Ivan Menchell wrote the story. It was released last May 20, 2014. The movie “Blended” is the third romantic comedy movie of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore joined together, first is the “Wedding Singer in 1998” and the “50 First Date in 2004” movie, both movies are romantic and funny giving us lovely songs and romantic moments.  Adam and Drew really do blend together in there three movie viewers going to watch it over and over again. I’m a big fan of Adam Sandler. I’ve watched his entire movie and this one movie I didn’t miss.

Adam Sandler played as Jim Friedman, a widow with three daughters, and Drew Barrymore played as Lauren Reynolds, a divorced wife with two sons, was set on a blind date resulting in some awkward and funny moments. After the date they accidentally switch their credit cards and by some coincident they end up going to Blended-2014-Movie-Stills-WallpapersAfrica for their vacation with their kids. Both families meet in Africa not happy to see each other, after a few bonding Jim and Lauren falls in love with each other. After returning home Jim realizes that he misses Lauren, Jim went to Lauren house to gift her flower but seeing Mark played by Joel Mchale in the house and pretending that they are back together. Mark asks Lauren if they can be together again but Lauren refuses the offer. Jim went to Tyler’s game with her daughters to support Tyler in his game ending the adults admitting that they love each other and kiss.

The movie have lots of funny and comedy scene and script, Adam Sandler did a great job in his role and so as Drew Barrymore, with the help of some co-stars the movie end up amazing delivering viewers something to remember. I am not spoiling anything but you have to watch it to believe, they made a good come back in this movie.  This movie is good for relaxing your stress and depress mind having a few laughs and giggle. Adam delivering good script is one of the movie’s traits adding Drew’s acting they really do blend in. Maybe because they have done several movies together or they are just good actor and actress. The film is recommendable to others and a successful team-up of the two stars.

Sex Tape (2014)

Standard

sex tapeex Tape is a comedy movie starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel and directed by Jake Kasdan. It’s a story of a couple having sex problem, so they decided to try to live their sex life by making a video of it. Most couples have this kind of problem, the sex problem.

At the start of the story the couple Annie (played by Cameron Diaz) and Jay (played by Jason Segel) having sex every time they have a chance, in the car, in the desk, etc. But as time passes the family grow, having two children Clive (played by Sebastian Hedges Thomas “Lullaby 2014”) and Nell (played by Giselle Eisenberg “The Wolf of Wall Street 2013”) their sex life became dull and less intense. As Jay tries hard to have sex with Annie, Annie always decline Jay’s wants. Realizing their problem, Annie suggests making a sex tape and Jay agreed to it. Making love over three hours marathon and done every position available in The Joy of Sex, Annie ask Jay to delete the video, too tired and exhausted but contented Jay accidentally sync the video to several iPads that they have given and gifted away over time. After few quarrel and discussion the Annie and Jay decided to retrieve the iPads they have given away, by doing this they manage to make some funny and awkward scenes and encounters like Jay being chased by a dog and Annie having cocaine with the boss.

sex tape qAfter retrieving the iPads and deleting the videos, a big problem occurs the neighbor’s son threatens the couple that if they didn’t give him $25,000 (twenty five thousand dollars) he will upload it on a porn site (You Porn). Failing to give the money the neighbor’s brat son uploaded it on the site. Annie and Jay rush to the porn site headquarters and destroy the servers using baseball bats attempting to delete the video. But the alarm went on and that’s when the owner of the site (Jack Black) and his cronies came, confronting them the owner, threaten them that he will call the police but didn’t do it makes an offer they are going to pay for the damages costing $15,000 (Fifteen thousand dollars) and removing the video. After the problems solve and only one copy left, it’s in their iPad, they decided to watch it one more time and put it in a USB Flask disk then destroyed it, burn it and bury the pieces.

A funny and hilarious movie, that is worth waiting and watch. Some couple having sex problem like this ending divorce and having an affair. Why not try their method, except for the syncing scene.

22 Jump Street

Standard

22-jump-streetThe second movie of 22 Jumps Street is still hilarious as the first one except this one got more style, more babes, more cars, more beers and more guns. Schmidt (played by Jonah Hill) a nerd looking loser guy team up with Jenko (played by Channing Tatum) a cool hunk looking guy makes a great comical chemistry. It’s like a mixture of brain and brawn, less brain off course, but it did the trick of making this movie one of the funniest movie of the year. I did watch the first movie (21 Jump Street in 2012) and it did make me laugh, I didn’t expect that they will out do the first movie. Maybe some didn’t enjoy this one because they expect it will be different than the first one. Of course, most movies will be related to the first one, if they didn’t enjoy this maybe they didn’t watch the first one. A few laughs to take out stress is good enough to have a nice day they like they say.

22 Jumps Street started after a year or months after bringing down a synthetic drug ring. Returning to the case the comical duo again meets up with Captain Dickson (played by Ice Cube), a grouchy strict chief, but 21 Jump Street was bought by Korean so they move next door to 22 Jump Street. In addition to that, 22 Jump Street has now fully equipped high standard head quarter. Taking the same case, but different location (College University) they must find the source of the spreading drugs. Like the First one they started with 22-jump-street-official-red-band-trailer-hd-1089586-TwoByOneno clue, no evidence and no suspect. Clueless, they seek help with someone has knowledge about how drug circulate or spread. That when Walters (played by Rob Riggle) the drug dealer in 21 Jump Street comes in. Having some knowledge they do what they do best, doing crazy stuff, mingling with others and luckily finding out the source of the drug.

Like the first one it will give you hilarious scenes and laughs, from partner problem to case solving part. It’s funny how the chemistry works a nerd loser looking cop turn popular and a cool hunk cop turning loser going undercover. What can I say, it’s a good movie. It’s worth watching, delivering some original laughs and scene. Going to rate it 7.5/10 for my laugh-o-meter. Spring break does make a lot of booze and babes. Watch it to be jealous, wishing you were there.

the interview 20144) The Interview

Writing pair Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen have shown their capability to record funny yet sincere movies before, and with previous years, they demonstrate their straight chops too. But, what sets The Interview apart from all the earlier pains of the pair is the occurrence of a tough female comic in the personality of Lizzy Caplan. In spite of the group’s male-centric comics, rotates by casting like Emma Watson and Emma Stone have been comical, and it will be coming to perceive how somebody like Caplan, as well as Veep’s Timothy Simons, shivers the existing dynamic.

Magic_in_the_Moonlight_poster5) Magic in the Moonlight

Comedy films will not be complete without mentioning Woody Allen, who has keep a movie-a-year output for a decade, and demonstrate no signs of slowing down, regardless of being a key pressure on a generation of humorists. Not only does Allen’s participation make the film sounds appealing. To add on, a cast that comprises Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Jackie Weaver, Hamish Linklater, and Marcia Gay Harden.

a million ways6) A Million Ways to Die in the West

The Western comedic type had very few crossovers and the most distinguished of all is Mel Brooks’, the typical Blazing Saddles. One more access in this part would it be worth reminding, but it’s the existence of Seth McFarlane that tally one more layer to this trait. McFarlane has verified to be adept at parodies in his television shows, and with his traits directorial debut being a big hit. The cast includes Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, and Sarah Silverman makes the film a lot more intriguing.

mufet7) Muppets Most Wanted

Comedy film icons like Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey play a role. The lead cast are Danny Trejo, Tom Hiddleston, Ty Burrell, Zach Galifianakis, Christoph Waltz, and Ray Liotta which would make the movie a thrilling prospect even with no Muppets. With Stoller and Bobin both coming back, it’s an assurance that it is worth watching.

That is situated to alter with Tammy, the draft for which McCarthy marked with husband and director Ben Falcone. McCarthy co-star is Susan Sarandon. Both McCarthy and Sarandon have important range that is worth waiting to watch for.

vampire academy 2014 10) Vampire Academy

Two of the top dominant high school films of the past 25 years had been Mean Girls and Heathers, both of which have gathered praises from public and critics. A team-up between individual behind mutual movies thus swear to be a mesmerizing film, and this is what Vampire Academy gives, as director Mark Waters controls this mark, from the writer Daniel Waters and the script by Heathers. The paranormal element of this specific movie only adds to the curiosity, for regardless of the pop-culture blast of vampires in current years, there haven’t been a lot of efforts at removing them for comedy. The premise and talent gives this movie the possible talent to be a comedy surprise.

What Happens in Vegas 2008

Standard

pvWUBsAQDhFa0aKH0fp2bokEyx3I can tell that the viewers have the right to junk this film, but they’re really missing something important that would lift the spectators marking a good aim above the detractor, if they did not pass to note a thing that is the real cause why a lot of us go out to witness it. ‘What Happens in Vegas‘ has not only the accessories of an expensive and huge Hollywood romance-comedy film, the nice set and bright colours, with 2 massive alluring stars, and they are not embarrassed by being here, because they do appear very nice, and differences or not, they appear good with being together too.

The writing is awful. The jokes and setups are corny and lame and at times tasteless and stupid. The curve is inevitable. The sequence isn’t exceptionally logical and interesting. The person scenarios therefore aren’t ever inclined to be very comic and the dialogues will never consider a bombshell too. But that requirement of high tone comedy can be an add-on if you find Cameron cool and amazing and Ashton as appealing and gorgeous. The lacking of a high laugh intensity such as the Apatow humour seldom reach means they take to react more like persons, they can record usual language instead of simple comic assault and you get to take a look at them, which is a durable and good reason for viewing this film. And both are getting mature better. Ashton is becoming handsome and big. The handsome-boy class is diminishing into somewhat more like an aged Hollywood chief man look. Cameron is elegant and sexy and looks awesome in a fit gown. Ashton has what-happens-in-vegasbeen educated since the staccato boundaries of “That Seventies Show.” He really records 6-7 distinctive and noticeably human language now. He added meanness and sarcasm. He can be a people-pleaser for life, but he doesn’t struggle as hard as he should do, nor does the fine mature boy character cover a specific rank of intelligence.

It is inadequate that majority of the Vegas night has ended in a rapid-fire mosaic that’s more like a sour trip than a night of hard drinks, that no sexy event happens, that the wedding is condensed to an ultimate outtake series. The ending is weepy sentimental but still sweet. The reviewer revulsion left inexplicable to me since ‘What Happens in Vegas’ left a fine taste, if not a very tough one. I was a bit worried by the little Asian woman, being created so stereotypically the unattractive misery strivers. That appears mean than being a comic. Queen Latifah is smooth continuously, but wasted like the marriage counsellor. Director Tom Vaughan ought to have credit, but it is writer Dana Fox who should be blame for the unevenness of the product. Diaz and Kutcher and the rest of the cast did a very good task. But an effort to think and plan the plot seems pointless. Its failings are too clear and visible.
