A Nightmare on Elm Street

March 10, 2009

Freddy Krueger is set to hit the screen, yet again. When will they learn that we are tired of seeing the same character’s in every horror movie. Not just Freddy but Jason and Myers too. I’m sure if someone made another character people would go watch it because it’s something new. In Wizzard’z World we are all about originality, to keep remaking the same film without significantly changing the plot show a lack of creativity and laziness.

Set to release April 16,2010 A Nightmare on Elm Street doesn’t look  to be any different, as determined form a brief synopsis provided by IMDB:

A re-imagining of the horror icon Freddy Krueger, a serial-killer who wields a glove with four blades embedded in the fingers and kills people in their dreams, resulting in their real death in reality.

Denzel and Travolta star in The Taking Pelham 1 2 3

March 5, 2009

Denzel Washington and John Travolta hit the big screen in action  thriller The Taking Pelham 1 2 3. Washington stars as Walter Garber, a civil service employee working for the New York subway system who’s world is changed when the train Pelham 123 is hijacked by a criminal mastermind, Ryder played by Travolta. Once in  control of the train Ryder and his well armed gang of four hold the passengers hostage, demanding a million dollar ransom to be delivered within the hour or hostages will be executed.

Sounds like a good one to me. With Denzel Washington playing the heroic negotiator I can only expect a great performance, such as displayed in Deja Vu, Inside Man, and The Manchurian Candidate. Then there’s John Travolta who is playing the villainous criminal mastermind which is more than the icing on the cake as seen in Be Cool and The Punisher.

Friday the 13th for the millionth time

March 3, 2009

I just wanna say, I’m tired of seeing remakes of the Jason, Freddy, and Myers horror films. Everyone of the million remakes is nothing more than a exact replica of the the one before, no originality. So to Friday the 13th…I honesty don’t remember half of the movie, yea it was just that boring. I’m not even sure I made it through the movie. But i can tell you Jason fanatics that they stuck to the storyline. The actors did a good job serving their purpose but none gave a standout performance. Overall, this is a very bad horror film and deserves a 5 out of 10.

Taken…..took it all the way

February 27, 2009

I heard all the hype about Taken, so i had to check it out.  And honestly…it was pretty good. I have to give it two thumbs up. Liam Neeson delivered a stunning performance, as a former spy who has to save his daughter from forced prostitution on her trip to Paris. Great acting, great plot and storyline. Here’s a short synopsis of the film for your reading pleasure provided by IMDB.

taken-poster-big2

The seventeen year-old Kim is the pride and joy of her father, the retired agent Bryan Mills that left the secret service to stay near Kim in California. Kim lives with her mother Lenore and her wealthy stepfather Stuart; she convinces the reluctant Bryan to sign an authorization to travel to Paris with her friend Amanda. When they arrive, they share a cab with the stranger Peter and Amanda tells to him that they are alone in Paris. When Bryan succeeds in contacting his daughter, she tells that criminals have just break in the spot and they are kidnapped by an Albanese gang of human trafficking. Bryan promises in the phone to kill the kidnapper of his daughter and immediately travels to Paris to find Kim and chase the criminals.

I would definitely recommend this movie, whether or not you like thrillers. This one is one for the collection.

Eddie Murphy Hits the Screen as Richard Pryor

February 27, 2009

Yup…..Richard Pryor life story hits the big screen and Eddie Murphy is set to star in the biopic. I would have never imagined they would give the legendary Richard Pryor a movie, but alas our dreams have come true…. Being  big Pryor fan I’d want nothing more than to see a movie about the life of Richard Pryor, especially when Eddie Murphy is headlining….Now, I’m a fan of Eddie Murphy only when he’s playing certain roles. Mostly comedy, it’s nothing personal but it’s hard to take him serious otherwise. I am an advocate of people sticking to what suits them and the role of Richard Pryor suits him. Not only does the role suit him, he resembles Pryor a little bit too.

Set to direct the film is Bill Condon. Condon will reunite with Murphy after their 2006 chart banger Dream Girls, and I’m sure they will deliver a stunning and legendary performance. Fox Searchlight is looking for a 2010 summer release date, really looking forward to this one.

Below is what Ain’t it Cool reported:

[Comment From Tom] Dan, I’m extremely excited for the HOB to be back in its birth-city!! I will be attending many shows. On a side note, and I’m sure you get these questions a lot, so I apologize in advance…Ghostbusters 3? I’ve heard that the writers of the Office are currently penning a script? How is this coming along, and should we look forward to this movie seeing the light of day? Thanks Dan!

Push was pushing it

February 25, 2009

I just got finished watching Push…… Not what I was expecting. I mean I have a fatal attraction to movies so I’ll watch just about anyone, but this one is pushing it… The plot takes a while to develop and characters pop up all over the place. Honestly it reminded me of Jumper, some superhuman race is being hunted by some super secret agency. I found myself drifting in and out of conscientious during this movie. But all is not lost; the actors make the film actually worthwhile and bearable.

Djimon Hounsou, Dakota Fanning, the always sexy Ming-Na, and Chris Evans all gave outstanding performances. It just goes to show that a good movie needs both a good plot as well as a good cast. Don’t get me wrong the film was decent but that’s it decent. So if you have nothing else to do with one of your evenings, why not watch it. It’d probably be a good waste of time. That being so i gotta give this one a 7.5/10. Below is a short summary provided by IMDB.

A group of young American ex-pats with telekinetic and clairvoyant abilities are hiding from a clandestine U.S. government agency. They must utilize their different talents and band together for a final job enabling them to escape the agency forever.
