Now You See Me

My rating: ratings3

Four magicians (played by Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco) are united and start pulling off bank robberies during performances and reward their audiences with the money. Meanwhile, an FBI agent (played by Mark Ruffalo) and an Interpol agent (played by Melanie Laurent), are assigned to track down these illusionists. This movie also stars Oscar winners Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman.

I saw this movie this week and I have to admit, it was better than I expected. The first ten or fifteen minutes of the movie are pretty boring and did not pull me in, and I thought that the rest of the movie will also be like this, but later it starts getting more interesting and thrilling. The cast is pretty good, and so is the directing and most of the story. I think that the best actor in the movie was Woody Harrelson, because he was the most entertaining and fun to watch here. The movie’s script sometimes does not work throughout the movie and often the plot makes little sense, but at the end it is very enjoyable and different than just any crime film. It would be worth watching, and I would especially recommend it for fans of crime and heist movies.

Grown Ups 2

My rating: ratings3

Attention, all Adam Sandler fans! Grown Ups 2 is now in theaters. I saw this movie a few days ago and my stomach hurt from laughing so much! Lenny (Adam Sandler) has now relocated his family to the small town where he and his friends (Kevin James, Chris Rock, and David Spade) grew up. The film takes place on the last day of school, in which the grown ups are acting more childish and their children are now growing up. This movie also stars Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, Nick Swardson, Taylor Lautner, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and Shaquille O’Neal (surprisingly) as a cop(plus hundreds of more cameos).

I think this movie is as funny as the first Grown Ups movie. There is just one thing I don’t understand: why they removed Rob Schneider from the second movie’s cast. For no apparent reason at all, I guess. But regardless of that, the movie was hilarious! The only thing this movie did lack was the heart of the first film. Some scenes are just people in weird costumes going nuts and jumping on other people. I would recommend this movie for all Adam Sandler (or Kevin James, Chris Rock, Shaq, etc.) fans and people who love to laugh out loud!

Despicable Me 2

My rating: ratings4

The minions are back in Despicable Me 2! Gru (Steve Carell) is now making jellies and is no longer a villan. He has 3 adopted daghters, Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith and Agnes. One day, he is recruited by the Anti-Villan League (AVL) to track down the thief of the PX-41, a serum that transforms living beings into killing machines. While going undercover as a worker at a cupcake shop at a mall, Gru realizes that one of the suspects at the mall is actually El Macho, a villan who Gru thought had died 20 years earlier. This movie also stars Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Benjamin Bratt, Steve Coogan, Moises Arias, Ken Jeong, and Kristen Schaal.

I saw this movie with my family, and we all laughed out loud and enjoyed the movie. I think it was as funny and despicable as the first Despicable Me movie. I would recommend this movie for kids all ages. I think adults will also enjoy this hilarious film.
