Thor (2011) Review

"You are now banished!"

Thor isnt the most popular Marvel hero in the lineup, and it seems that it would be very hard to adapat his story to screen
How did it turn out?

Thor tells the story of the God of Thunder being cast out of Asgard for his arrogant ways, his brother Loki is set to become king now, and no one wants that.
So Thor has to prove himself on earth to gain entry back to Asgard 

Thor's story is simple, and action packed, and very funny.
The humor points out how ridiculous the story is, but that makes us accept it better.
The movie is a great comic book movie, easily on par with the Iron man films!

Verdict: Must see/buy/Watch it friends 

  • Action packed
  • Funny
  • Great story
  • Great action
  • Fantastic action                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  • A little long
  • Maybe confusing to some

Fast Five (2011) review

"Running aint freedom"

Let me get this out of the way, I havent seen ANY other movies in this series, so take it at that

Fast Five is the fifth entry in the "Fast and Furious" series, since I cant compare it to its predescors, I'll judge it on it's on right.

"Fast Five" is one of the best popcorn movies I've seen, it is well paced, action packed, funny, and somewhat dramatic.
The chracters are enver in any real harm, no matter how outrageous the action on screen is, and Dwayne johnson (The Rock) plays a good Villian.
Overall, this movie as sparked my intrest in the series and I will be looking into the earlier entrys

Verdict:Must see/Rental/Watch it with friends 

  • Well paced
  • Funny
  • Action packed
  • Nice stunts
  • Some Cliches
  • Characters never in any real harm
  • Some Immature lines

Rio (2011) Review

I LOVE Jessie Eisenburg

Rio is the new animated comedy from the creators of "Ice Age"
How does it compare with Ice age?
I enjoyed "Rio" very much, it was funny, cute, had good graphics, good voices, a great family film, and it didnt shy away from Brazils social problems

The movie is about Blu (Jessie) being the last male of his species, so he has to go mate with Jewel (Hateway) so their species can survive
The movie is fast paced, with a good amount of laughter (For an adult, for a kid probably a HUGE amount) and is enjoyable for both audiences

Verdict: Matinée/Rental/for the kids

  • Funny
  • Cute
  • Family Oriented
  • Entertaining enough for Adults and Children
  • Doesnt shy from addressing Rio's social problems
  • A little Immature
  • Slapstick humor
  • Some Cliches
