Gravity     It’s a rare occurrence for me to get excited for a big budget movie these days. With a few exceptions of course, 2013 hasn’t lived up to the hype created by it’s trailers that oversell the product. However the trailer for Gravity, the new film from Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron, seems promising. With the underrated Children Of Men from 2006 and the 2004 film Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban in his credits, Cuaron is one of those directors that carefully chooses his films.

In Gravity, the premise is simple. Two astronauts are caught in a shower of debris that cripples their shuttle and threatens their lives. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney stars as the only two characters in the film. Watch the newest trailers here for “Drifting” and here for “Detached”.  After a year of delay and 3d post production conversion, Gravity with land in theaters on October 4 in IMAX 3D and other large format 3D theaters.

The Rest In Peace Department employ only the finest, recently deceased lawmen in human history. Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) is the newest to join the R.I.P.D., Walker who was shot in the face, literally by his partner Bobby Hayes (Kevin Bacon) has alot to deal with. Aside from being dead, remember, he was shot in the face, Walker has agreed to spend 100 years in the R.I.P.D. with the hopes of returning to earth after his term ends. What follows is the obligatory training and acclimation in to the force. Lead by Proctor (Mary-Louise Parker), who hands down the assignments from heaven above.

The R.I.P.D. is charged with hunting down and removing those that don’t want to stay dead. Naturally, or supernaturally as it were, the dead turn into monsters if they don’t go on their journey through the afterlife. R.I.P.D. slowly starts to turn into several other  franchises at this point. More on that later.

Movie Review: Red 2

July 18, 2013

red-2 Red 2 is as good as the first! There’s really nothing more than that to say. It’s the most important thing to take away from this review. I wanted to save you the time over the next 600 words and simply say the Red 2 is as good as the first. It’s been another year of sequels. While this year has been particularly lackluster, Red 2 can be added to the very short list of sequels worth seeing.   However, as a reviewer; it would be pretty lazy to leave this review on that note.  We’ll go delve into the shenanigans of the film in a bit but, Red 2 could be setting itself up to be a franchise worth following.  (more…)

Here are the top 10 movies of the weekend as compiled on Sunday July 14, 2013. There are some surprises. Pacific Rim opened this weekend to a less than spectacular showing. The Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots finished in 3rd in it’s opening weekend. With an estimated budget of $190M, Pacific Rim didn’t have enough fight in it to earn a top spot. Despite help from IMAX and 3D sales Pacific Rim only managed a paltry $38.3M. The Lone ranger is the other big surprise. Cap’n Jack Tonto snagged $11.1M more in it’s 2nd week. Making only $71M domestically, The Lone Ranger could be the biggest bomb of the year.
