My rating: ratings4

I saw the movie Rio, which I really enjoyed. It stars Jesse Eisenberg (who you might recognize from  The Social Network) as Blu, Anne Hathaway (from The Princess Diaries and Becoming Jane) as Jewel, (rapper of The Black Eyed Peas) as Pedro, Jamie Foxx as Nico, George Lopez as Rafael, Tracy Morgan as a bulldog named Luiz, Jemaine Clement as Nigel, and Leslie Mann as Linda, Blu’s owner. The film is about a blue macaw named Blu, who lives with his owner, Linda, in her bookstore in Moose Lake, Minnesota. One day, Blu and Linda are brought to Rio de Janeiro, where they are told that Blu is the last male of his species, and he is later brought to the last female of his species, Jewel. But they are soon kidnapped by smugglers, and they go on an adventure in Rio to find Linda. The views and landscapes of Rio in the movie are very beautiful, and I would recommend this movie for the whole family.

Also, here is the trailer of Rio.And here is the first 2 minutes of the movie.

Bruce Almighty

My rating: 

Yesterday I saw the movie Bruce Almighty, which I really enjoyed and thought it was really funny. The movie stars Jim Carrey, Morgan Freeman, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Lisa Ann Walter, Phillip Baker Hall and Cathrine Bell. It is about a man named Bruce Nolan (played by Jim Carrey), who is a reporter for Eyewitness News at Buffalo, New York. He lives with his girlfriend, Grace Conelly(played by Jennifer Aniston), who he will soon be engaged with. One day, Bruce is fired for making obscence remarks at a live broadcast in Niagra Falls. Later, he meets God (played by Morgan Freeman), who gives him cool powers like his own, and he soon is known as Mr. Exclusive. I think Bruce Almighty is one of Jim Carrey’s most funny movies (another movie I really enjoyed starring Jim Carrey is Mr. Popper’s Penguin’s), and I also think that the most funny parts in the movie are when Bruce uses his new almighty powers to do supernatural things, like pulling the moon closer to the Earth with his bare hands, which makes the moon look larger in the sky, driving his car at hyperspeed, and using his hands to mimic parting the Red Sea in a red soup bowl. Even the trailer of the movie would make you laugh. I would reccomend this movie for kids my age or older and adults. This film is now available on DVD and Blu-ray.

Good Luck Charlie, It’s Christmas!

My rating: 

2 days ago, I saw the movie Good Luck Charlie, It’s Christmas! The movie was OK, but it was funny, too. It is based on the 2010 Disney Channel TV show Good Luck Charlie, and it is the story of the Duncan family (Bob(dad), Amy(mom), PJ, Teddy,  Gabe, and Charlie(kids)), who plan to go to Palm Springs, California for Christmas to visit Amy’s parents, Petunia (played by Debra Monk) and Hank (played by Michael Kagan). But when Teddy (played by Bridgit Mendler) gives up her airplane seat for a free flight ticket for her spring break trip to Florida (Amy (played by Leigh-Allyn Baker) also leaves the plane, not wanting Teddy to travel alone), they go on a long adventure to Palm Springs, and try to get there before Christmas. The rest of the cast includes Bradley Steven Perry as Gabe, Mia Talerico as Charlie, Eric Allen Kramer as Bob, Jason Dolley as PJ, and Raven Goodwin as Ivy, Teddy’s best friend. This movie is one of my favorite Disney Channel movies (another one of my favorite Disney Chanell movies is Frenemies), and I would recommend this movie for the whole family. This movie is now available on DVD.

Step Up Revolution

My rating: 

Yesterday I saw the movie Step Up Revolution with my cousin. It is the fourth movie in the ”Step Up” movie series (the previous movies are Step Up, Step Up 2: The Streets, and Step Up 3D). We both really liked the movie. It is about a girl named Emily (played by Kathryn McCormick) who moves with her father (played by Peter Gallagher) to Miami, where she falls in love with a man named Sean (played by Ryan Guzman), the leader of a dancing crew called the MOB. The crew want to win a dancing contest, but when Emily’s father threatens to destroy the MOB, they decide to turn their performance art into protest art. I really liked the dancing in the movie and I think this is the best of all 4 Step Up movies. I would recommend this movie for kids my age or older and adults. Step Up Revolution will be available on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D starting November 27 in the United States.

Also, here is the trailer of Step Up Revolution.

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

My rating: 

Yesterday, I saw the movie Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. I really enjoyed the movie and thought it is really cool. It is the third and final installment to George Lucas’ ”Star Wars” prequel trilogy, in which the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker (played by Hayden Christensen) becomes the chancellor of the republic’s new apprentice after Count Dooku(AKA Darth Tyranus) was killed by Anakin (the chancellor’s name is Chancellor Palpatine, who is really the evil Darth Sidious, and he is played by Ian McDiarmid) joins the Dark Side and becomes the evil Darth Vader, changing the fate of the galaxy forever. Natalie Portman plays Padme Amidala, the fomer Queen of Naboo, who is also Anakin’s secret wife, and she has recently become pregnant with twins, who she later names Luke and Leia. Also, Ewan McGregor plays Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi Master who is Anakin’s former master. I also really like the action sequences of the movie and I would recommend this movie for everyone, including kids and adults. Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith is now on DVD and Blu-ray and it will be re-released in theaters in 3D in the United States starting October 11, 2013.

Beasts of the Southern Wild

My rating: ratings1

Today I saw the movie ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ with my grandmother. We both didn’t really like the movie, and we also thought that the end of the movie was really sad. It is about a fearless six-year-old girl named Hushpuppy who lives with her father, Wink, in a community called ”the Bathtub”. Wink is teaching her how to survive in the wild, preparing her for a time when he’s no longer there to protect her because he knew that he was very ill and dying. Soon, following a terrible storm, ”the Bathtub” is flooded, ice caps begin to melt, releasing ancient beasts, who begin to come to the Bathtub and Hushpuppy’s father’s illness deteriorates. With ”the Bathtub” being flooded, the beasts coming, and Wink’s health fading, Hushpuppy begins to search for her lost mother. I think Hushpuppy is a really fearless girl, not running away when the beasts come close to her, but instead tries to get into their souls. I also think that the people who lived in ”the Bathtub” were like animals or cave people in the sense that they lived a very primitive life, nourishing only on what they were able to hunt or fish. They were not touched by civilization and even tried to stay away and decline any kind of help (even medical assistance). Yet, they are very sensitive and extremely loyal and devoted to each other.

I recommend the movie for adults and teenagers, but definitely not for young children who might find the movie too scary and misunderstand the fine sensibilities and relationships between the protagonists.

Also, here is the trailer of Beasts of the Southern Wild.

Mrs. Doubtfire

My rating: 

Yesterday, I saw the movie Mrs. Doubtfire. I really enjoyed it and I thought it was funny. It is about a voice actor named Daniel Hillard (played by Robin Williams), who, after a divorce with a woman named Miranda (played by Sally Field), is told that he can only see his children once a week, and he thinks that it is not enough, so he dresses up as a woman named ”Mrs. Doubtfire” and becomes his children’s housekeeper, letting him see them more. I think this is one of Robin Williams’ best and funniest movies (another one of my favorite movies starring Robin Williams is Hook). I also liked Sally Field’s role as Daniel’s ex-wife, Miranda Hillard. The rest of the cast includes Lisa Jakub, Matthew Lawrence, and Mara Wilson as Daniel and Miranda’s children and Pierce Brosnan as Stuart Dunmire, Miranda’s boyfriend after her divorce with Daniel. I think that the moral of the movie is that even if your parents don’t love each other, they’ll still always love you. I would reccomend this movie for the whole family.
