sands, kick, fangs, guns, toy

I've been reviewing more movies lately since there are a lot of good movies that is running in our local cinemas. I have watch several movies over the past weeks. These movies are well received in the country that some had long queue.  These movies are prince of Persia: the Sand of Time, Karate Kid, Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The A-Team and Toy Story 3.

Popcorn: 5/5 popcorn

I really had no idea how great this film is. My friend and I just roamed around the mall and ended watching this. We were so happy when we got out the cinema because we didn't expected that it would be that great. Though I read a lot of positive tweets around twitter but I never expected for it to be that good :) This film is a video game adaptation of the same name. Jake Gyllenhaal is smoking-hot in this film. Those abs and muscles, whew! hahaha!

I have watched this film last month. I never expected this film to be that good. My expectation wasn't that high. I only watched this because my sister wanted me to accompany her to watch this. Good thing she took me with her because this is an amazing film. The story was really great. Jaden Smith (the young kid) acted out well. He was really real on his actions. Amazing kid with a fantastic martial arts moves. I felt weird watching Jackie Chan doing a serious role. I did miss his comical sides but then he was still a great actor. I had read from wikipedia that Sony Pictures is planning to do a sequel due to its success.  This is a great film that children (and even adults) would learn a big lesson.

This film is madness in the country. Every cinema in town is fully booked that its difficult to get a ticket! Good thing my beautiful elder sister gave me a free ticket to an event for an exclusive screening on Eclipse. She couldn't make it because she was out of town. Eclipse is my favorite book from the Twilight saga. It was the only book that has actions in it. I was looking for more actions in this series and only the third book has it. The film was able to adapt the book very well. Its cinematography is great. The casts (new and old) were also fantastic. The director of this film is a horror film director. No doubt there were this chilling sound, moves and angles that you would usually encounter in an horror film. Edward and Jacob rivalry has increased. There is only one scene I find Edward to look god. Its the scene where Edward and Jacob are talking while Bella was sleeping inside the tent. perhaps he seems to look messy through out the film and that was the only scene where he looks clean (hehehe). But I'm still on Team Edward (hehehe).Overall, Twilight has improved big time. 

Popcorn: 3.5/5 popcorn

I have a comic book of this film. I had no idea what it was nor how popular the comic was. It was even adapted to a television series and now a film adaptation. I was excited to watch this since I did love the comic book. It fell short on my expectation. Though the film was good but it felt like something is missing or lacking on this film. There seems to be some doubts for a sequel to come out soon. Well I hope there will be and I hope to see an improvement in this film.

After a decade a new Toy Story was released. I can't believed how long the second installment was. I was on my first year high school then. But the long wait was worth it. This film is really great. In fairness, all of the Toy Story series have great screenplay. Kudos to the writers! This is fantastic that you should bring your family and the whole gang to watch this. Amazing lessons that make us think the importance of something we valued.

These were some of the movies I have watched and there are still some on the roll. There are still great films coming out for the rest of the year. 2010 has still lots of exciting films to watch. I need to save some for them then. hahaha!

Enjoy the mid-week :)
