July Movie Preview, part 1

Check out these movies coming to you in the first half of July

Opening July 2nd

Tammy – In this episode of Breaking Bad: The Fast Food Edition our heroine has just lost her McJob and is forced to hit the road after a botched robbery of her former employer (rated R comedy).

Deliver Us From Evil – A preacher and a member of the NYPD set out to arrest a demon. If your in the mood for scary this weekend here you go! Shouldn’t this be coming out in October?

Earth to Echo – If Chronicle and ET had a baby that was raised by Disney it would be this movie. The plot should be familiar to you if you have seen Flight of the Navigator or Explorers.

Opening July 11th

Dawn of The Planet of the Apes – “We apes not start sh*t; we apes finished it!” This movie is the missing link of how we lost the planet to the apes. It should be bananas!

A Long Way Down – Four strangers all get in each others way while attempting to jump off the same building and make a pact to not kill themselves for now.  This move has “date movie” written all over it and is is based off of a book by Nick Hornby. He also wrote the book High Fidelity, which the film About a Boy was based off of.

 

Transformers 4 Age of Extinction – my full review by Lawrence of America

imagesPASS ON IT! – I know all the fan boys will go see it any way, and I’m sure it will make a ton of money.  Really tho this movie brought nothing new to the table.

SPECIAL EFFECTS – With a movie like this half of reason people go see it is the special effects and they were ok at best.  When stuff exploded (and it did constantly) it often did in an unrealistic way and thus looking more like a fireworks display than a battle.  The cg was almost on par with the first one (I guess).  It felt like they skimped on the sound effects a bit much with of the fight scenes having cheesy background music instead of explosions.   The Deceptacons no longer transform but but the denigrate and reform.  The Deceptacons also look like the “squids” from matrix reloaded when they hover and fly.  ***WARNING The over use of the lens flair effect made some scenes literally painful to watch akin to staring at the sun .***

PLOT / STORY – Really I wasn’t expecting much if any and that is exactly what it delivered.

Overall if you have an itch to see robots fight go rent Pacific Rim and save your self $15.

“Maleficent” – My Full Review by Lawrence of America

Well it’s that time again and i just got back from seeing  Maleficent maleRENT IT –   Overall its watchable but I left feeling like the premise of the movie was that men suck

First of let me say that i was not looking forward to this movie and I would not consider myself a Disney die hard.  The buzz I heard from the die hard s that went to see it on opening night was that they were disappointed.  I can understand why this is not your typical Disney affair.  This movie is or might as well be the Disney remake of “Wicked”.

While I’m not saying this is a bad movie but I’m not going to call it great.  The effects were well done.  The actors played there parts well.  The story was uninspired and predictable.  This was not a fairy tail story it just happened to have fairy tail characters in it.  That is why most of the die hard s were disappointed.

This movie also fails the “Reverse Bechdel Test”, and every male character was either evil or mythical with one lone exception.  This movie does give off the anti man vibe  tho read on to find out why I say that.

: SPOILER ALERT : SPOILER ALERT : SPOILER ALERT :

this movie is essentially about a fairy girl and a human boy who fall in love as children.  As, they grow older the boy’s heart is “overcome by the greed of Men” and he leaves his love to pursue wealth and riches and goes to work for the king proving that he loves money more than all else.  While the fairy dedicates her life to defending her magical homeland.

The “greedy” king hates the fairies  because they have wealth that he wants and they stop him from pillaging their magic land.  Even on his death bed all he wants is kill the fairy who stopped his pillaging, and he says who ever kills the fairy for him he will pick as his heir and as an added bonus he can have his daughter.  Proving that he has nothing but hate in his heart.

The boy now a greedy man see’s his opportunity to betray his former love and become king.  He sets out and steals her wings and lies to the dieing king.  Once again proving that he loves money more than all else.

The heart broken fairy finds out that her former love did it to be king and so she stalks him.  So when she sees the new king and queen have a child she puts the sleeping beauty curse on the child.  Proving hell hath no fury like a women scorn.

The new sends the princess away to live in the woods with 3 idiots he does not know so he can exact his revenge becoming obsessed with it just like the former king.  Thus proving that all men are the same.

The fairy regrets it but cant undo it.  So after 16 years of secretly protecting the child she tries to help break the curse by guiding a prince who “loves” her to kiss her and break the curse but it does not work and her kiss is the one that breaks it.  Thus proving if you want it done right send a woman.

The king does not care that she broke the curse and tries to kill her anyway which leads to him falling to his death and the princess becomes queen of the human and the fairy gives her rule of the magical land and all is happy under the 16 year old queen.  Thus proving that everything would be better if women were in charge.

Maybe I’m reading to much in to it but the phrase “the evil of men” was used multiple times.  With one lone exception all the evil deeds were done by men and all the good deeds done women.
