Captain America Plot Released

March 14, 2009

The plot for the upcoming  Captain America movie, The First Avenger: Captain America, has been released and they’ve decided to take it back to the 1940’s. The film will cover the origins of Captain America which dates back to the second World War, as  solider Steve Rodgers turns super solider in a experiment thus depicting the creation of Captain America.

Here’s a short synopsis of the next Marvel Comic turned movie, The First Avenger: Captain America, provided by Production Weekly:

“Born during the Great Depression, Steve Rogers grew up a frail youth in a poor family. Horrified by the newsreel footage of the Nazis in Europe, Rogers was inspired to enlist in the army. However, because of his frailty and sickness, he was rejected. Overhearing the boy’s earnest plea, General Chester Phillips offered Rogers the opportunity to take part in a special experiment… Operation: Rebirth. After weeks of tests, Rogers was at last administered the “Super-Soldier Serum” and bombarded by “vita-rays.” Steve Rogers emerged from the treatment with a body as perfect as a body can be and still be human. Rogers was then put through an intensive physical and tactical training program. Three months later, he was given his first assignment as Captain America. Armed with his indestructible shield and and battle savvy, Captain America has continued his war against evil both as a sentinel of liberty and leader of the Avengers.”

This film is set to release May 6, 2011 and seeing how this one hasn’t claimed a director yet, they might wanna get a move on it. I’m sure that no one wants Marvel’s first Captain America movie of this millennium to be like anything close to atrocity known as Superman Returns, luckily Batman stepped in to save Superman’s slandered name and keep D.C. in the game. I mean you should at least give the guy a change to get established again because the average day person isn’t likely to know much about Captain America. There’s a lot of pressure riding upon this, with the gained success of Iron Man and The Hulk, Captain America has high expectations to meet.

By tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America.

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince

March 7, 2009

Though I hate openly admitting this I’m kind of  a Harry Potter fan. It’s hard to resist when it’s everywhere you look. But….it’s getting old. You can’t keep adding pieces to the same story, sometime you just have to let it go and start something new… I can’t really say it will be a disappointment in the box office because of its strong fan base..

I check out the trailer for the 6th Harry Potter movie: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Doesn’t look like it’s gonna be bad but i couldn’t really give it a fair chance because I’m getting tired of a world full of Harry Potter. That being so here’s the trailer:

Public Enemies

March 4, 2009

Here’s a short synopsis of the upcoming movie Public enemies staring Johnny Depp and Christian Bale:

public-enemies-posterIn the action-thriller Public Enemies, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard in the incredible and true story of legendary Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger (Depp)the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoovers fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale), and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public. No one could stop Dillinger. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone from his girlfriend Billie Frechette (Cotillard) to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression. But while the adventures of Dillinger’s gang later including the sociopathic Baby Face Nelson (Stephen Graham)thrilled many, Hoover (Billy Crudup) hit on the idea of exploiting the outlaw’s capture as a way to elevate his Bureau of Investigation into the national police force that became the FBI. He made Dillinger America’s first Public Enemy Number One. Hoover sent in Purvis, the dashing “Clark Gable of the FBI”. However, Dillinger and his gang outwitted and outgunned Purvis’ men in wild chases and shootouts. Only after importing a crew of Western ex-lawmen (newly baptized as agents) who were real gunfighters and orchestrating epic betrayals from the infamous “Lady in Red” to the Chicago crime boss Frank Nittiwere Purvis and the FBI able to close in on Dillinger.

Terminator Salvation

March 3, 2009

Now i know that we all thought that they would never make another Terminator film but they are and get this he’s still in it. Yea, the 61 year old governor will dress up yet again at hit the screen as the terminator for the 4th time in Terminator Salvation. Where does he find the time??? Lol. Well at least there interesting to watch. I suppose he’s no different than Sylvester Stallone in his Rocky and Rambo movies. Sometime you have to wonder when enough is enough. I for one don’t want to keep seeing action movies with actors that are a good fall away from having to have a walker. Lol, jk. I’m sure they both have a couple good action films left in them, just as I’m sure this next installment in Terminator will be a great film, i hope. With Christian Bale set to play John Connor I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

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.
