Movie Review: "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol"

Despite forswearing giving patronage (or even watching for free) any movie starring a Scientologist -- in particular Tom Cruise -- I was persuaded to go see "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (M:I 4) at the cinema recently.

Did I kick myself for going against my better judgement?

Nope, I saw a pretty good Summer blockbuster during the Christmas season.

Movie Review: "Seven Samurai"

Okay I finally watched Akira Kurosawa's epic classic "Shichinin no samurai", or in English: "Seven Samurai".

I'm amazed that such an old movie (released in 1954) stands up pretty well to the test of time, and actually lives up to the hype!

The cinematography is better that a lot of the swill that Hollywood churns out yearly...

Movie Reviews: "Ghost in the Shell" (Trilogy)

Based on the great manga (Japanese comic books/graphic novels), the three movies made were:
Ghost in the ShellGhost in the Shell 2: InnocenceGhost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Solid State Society

Movie Review: "The Debt"

So I saw The Debt, starring Helen Mirren. It's a well acted drama set both in 1965 (when a covert mission is undertaken), and in 1997 (when the three operatives are reunited).

I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but it has a lot of drama and angst -- plus a nice action scene or two.

Movie Review: "Puss in Boots"

Puss in Boots was awesomeness! 
Antonio Banderas + Salma Hayek (in either animated or real-life) seems to always = Epic Win. 
I didn't even know it was in 3D until I showed up at the cinema, but would you believe it? ACTUAL 3D-ness. I never once felt cheated.

Movie Review: "Real Steel"

Wow. That was an awesome movie!

Real Steel is a movie that works great as a kid's movie, AND as an adult's movie at the same time -- quite a rare feat to accomplish.

Also of note, Hugh Jackman finally has a good movie outside of X-Men.

Movie Review: "Bridesmaids"

So after hearing that Bridesmaids was the female equivalent to The Hangover, and seeing the trailers (which looked good) I decided to check it out finally.

Now it is a funny movie, but the trailer portrays it to be a very different movie (AKA: it's NOT like The Hangover).

Movie Review: "Æon Flux"

So I just watched Aeon Flux, and the first scene tells me that 99% of the world's population is gonna die (by a virus) in 2011!

I guess all those nut-jobs doomsday prophets this year were inspired by the movie? ;-)
Also, CharlizeTheron is pretty hot!

Movie Review: “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”

Transformers: Dark of the Moon was actually my favourite in the franchise so far!

They replaced Megan Fox with a less hot chick, but countered that huge loss with ACTION, EXPLOSIONS, ACTION, and more ACTION.

For those who don't recall, the only good part about watching the last installment (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), was seeing Megan run in slow motion on an IMAX screen.

Because I'm still feeling the Latin vibe, here is Salma Hayek. - QBF

Movie Review: "X-Men: First Class"

Ah the last super-hero movie review, and the best in the genre this year – in my humble opinion.

This reboot of the X-Men franchise (after the debacle that was X-Men: The Last Stand, and the disappointment of X-Men Origins: Wolverine) takes us all the way back to the start of it all.

And by start I mean Professor Xavier (Professor X to his friends) still had hair, could walk, and was a bit of a horny devil!

Movie Review: "Thor"

The movie which raised my hopes for the aforementioned Green Lantern.

A surprisingly (hammer) smashing good time!

Thor had great characters (which matched their comic counterparts), a good storyline (by J. Michael Stracynski), and awesome action sequences (paying attention here DC Comics?).

Movie Review: "Green Lantern"

As if to disprove the fact that I enjoy every super-hero movie made recently, there is Green Lantern.

This movie should not have disappointed me, because my first reaction to learning of it being filmed was to cringe.
However, after all the other surprisingly good super-hero movies recently, I dared to dream, and so raised my hopes and expectations... and had them choked out by large green hands.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so enjoy these nine thousand or so devoted to Jesikah Maximus! You can then check out this Latin lovely's site for more goodies (until my next installment of course). - QBF

Trick... or Treat?

Happy Halloween! (or All Hallow's Eve to be more proper ancient.)

Yes it is that time of ghosts and goblins, kids (and adults) dressed up in costumes, the begging for treats (yes adults want a different sort of "candy" though), and the "tricking" of those who don't let off some sweet, sweet candy.

There is some discussion on the exact origin of Halloween, the History Channel has a lovely website dedicated to it here, and of course the Alexandria's Library of our time (Wikipedia) has it's own page here.

But enough of that whole learning thing, on with the entertainment! Namely, the late, great Michael Jackson's blockbuster of a music video: "Thriller".

Movie Review: "Captain America: The First Avenger"

So how good was "Captain America: The First Avenger"? Surprisingly good is how!

Despite Cap being dubbed "the first Avenger", this movie is the last one setting up The Avengers movie due in 2012 (the prior ones were The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 1 & 2, and Thor).

This was not your typical super-hero movie, and was a great origin story for Captain America.

Movie Review: "Batman: Year One"

Whoa. This was all kinds of awesomeness! Batman: Year One is based on the Frank Miller mini-series of the same name, and follows it pretty closely -- which was a great idea.

Movie Review: "The Thing" (2011)

So they remade one of the movies from my childhood in the Eighties, “The Thing”. Apparently it was more of a cult classic than a box-office success back then, but what mattered to me is that it was a scary movie – and I was too chicken to watch it! Fast-forward 20-odd years, and there I am, braver and ready to face my fears.

Site Update: Movie Reviews

So I've decided to really bring back start a feature I used to do on my old Windows Live Blog back in the day: Movie Reviews! *cue fan-fare*
Nothing too dramatic, and they should be for the most part spoiler-free, so fear not checking them out before hitting the cinema, renting, or *cough cough* acquiring them by other means.
I will give you a numerical rating at the end of each review ranging from “0.0” (avoid at all costs, hunt down all parties involved in its creation, and exterminate with extreme prejudice), to “5.0” (this is manna from Heaven – watch it repeatedly).
Also there will be a more generic rating such as “rent”, “avoid”, or “cinema-worthy” for example.
I hope you find the new feature useful! - QBF
PS: I’m closing in on post # 500!! :-)
