Was Saw 3D worth being in 3D? Did Saw 3D tie up all loose ends?

Plot: As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw’s brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen, a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror.

First off, I noticed that the opening credits were different from the other Saw films. Which I liked, it was time for a change. But other than that it was another Saw film. But I’m ok with that. The other thing I really noticed was the story with Jill and Hoffman was the only thing I really wanted to see. The other story was fine and kept the game going.

Everyone that seen it Thursday night got a pair of limited edition I SAW IT FIRST 3D glasses. Which everyone pretty much put in the recycle bin. I however kept my pair because I love Saw!

Tobin bell wasn’t even in the film for 5 minutes. Since Saw VI was his finally game.

Cary Elwes did a great job. To see Dr. Gordon return was awesome. But wasn’t really in the movie.

Kevin Greutert (Saw VI, Saw 3D director) did an amazing job. He went through a lot of crap before shooting.

3D was not what I was expecting. Wasn’t clear enough. My dad and I both agreed we’d rather of see it in 2D on an HD TV.

Saw 3D was re-edited and submitted six times to the MPPA to bring it from an NC-17 to an R rating. Yes, the movie is very GRAPHIC.

Final thing, did it tie up all loose ends? Yes…and no. Some things they told us, some not. Could there be a sequel? Any movie can have a sequel but Saw 3D is said to be the last one. It truly is game over.

RIP Saw 2004-2010.

Rated R for sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture, and language.

Kick-Ass Review

Posted in Movie Reviews with tags , , , , , , on April 18, 2010 by crow237

4 out of 5

Plot: Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.

Aaron Johnson stars as Dave Lizewski / Kick-Ass,  a nobody that decides to become a superhero.

Nicolas Cage stars as Damon Macready/Big Daddy, he and his daughter are already superheros.

Chloë Grace Moretz stars as Mindy Macready/Hit-Girl

Christopher Mintz-Plasse stars as Chris D’Amico/Red Mist

Kick-Ass does live up to its title. The violence is brutal throughout and I loved it! Kick-Ass is also very funny.

All the acting was great but Chloë Grace Moretz did the best job. There is nothing she wont say.

And who doesn’t love an 11-year-old girl killing people and dropping F’ bombs?

Kick-Ass did however star out slow but it quickly picked up.

It just might be the greatest superhero film of all time. Though it is a superhero movie its  not for kids.

Rated R for strong brutal violence throughout, pervasive language, sexual content, nudity and some drug use – some involving children.

When in Rome Review

5 out of 5

Plot: Beth is a young, ambitious New Yorker who is completely unlucky in love. However, on a whirlwind trip to Rome, she impulsively steals some coins from a reputed fountain of love, and is then aggressively pursued by a band of suitors.

Kristen Bell stars as Elizabeth “Beth” Martin, who believes she will never find love. Beth then meats Nick (Josh Duhamel) and she thinks she might be in love…but does Nick love her or is he under a spell?

Josh Duhamel (know better as Fergies husband) stars as Nick Beamon, a semi-confident man who is in love with Beth, or is he?

Other known actors: Jon Heder, Dax Shepard, Will Arnett, and Danny DeVito.

When in Rome is very funny. Something funny was being said every second. And you know a film must be funny if everyone in the theater is laughing too.

When in Rome was given many negative reviews for some stupid reason. If you say you don’t like this movie then you suck. It is a must see for fans of any type of movie. Unless your one of those people who hate every film.

It will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc on June 15, 2010.

Rated PG-13 for some suggestive content.

She’s Out of My League Review

4 out of 5

How can a 10 go for a 5?

Plot: An average Joe meets the perfect woman, but his lack of confidence and the influence of his friends and family begin to pick away at the relationship.

Jay Baruchel stars as Kirk, your average looking TSA security agent geek at an airport. Kirk just happens to get a date with the amazing…no, the gorgeous…no, whats that word I’m looking for? Anyway, he gets a date with Molly (Alice Eve). Hot, Molly is really hot, that’s the word. And she is totally out of his league.

Alice Eve stars as Molly, the amazing, the gorgeous, the super hot woman who ever guy wants to be with. Molly then realizes she lost her cell phone while going through security and must get it back. Kirk finds her phone and saves her day. As a thank you, Molly asks Kirk if he’d like to a hockey game, and your main story starts.

Alice is a very good actress and she was the best choice for Molly.

As the film goes on, Kirk and Molly go on a few dates, she meets his family and he meets hers. But the couple start to…go watch the movie.

She’s Out of My League is funny (not as funny as I thought) but still funny and is worth seeing in theaters. I will probably get this movie on DVD, it’s that good.

Rated R for language and sexual content.

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day

Posted in Movie Reviews with tags , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2010 by crow237

The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day was released on DVD and Blu-ray yesterday.

It is the sequel to the cult classic The Boondock Saints. Which only had a 5-theater run, earning $30,471. It has now grossed about $50 million in video sales.

I love the first film…and I love the second. A lot of people weren’t happy with the sequel but they don’t know good movies. The thing I love the most about All Saints Day is that all the actors we love came back. They’re just ten years older.

The Boondock Saints 10th Anniversary One-Night Nationwide Theater Showing 3/11/2010.

SAW VI Review

? out of 5

This will be the last SAW VI update blog. As you all can see I did not rate the film. If you’re a fan you will love it. The SAW franchise, you either love it, hate it, or are getting bored with it.

Plot: Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw’s legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw’s grand scheme is finally understood.

New and fourth director Kevin Greutert (who has been the editor on all the past films) sure brought us gory violence and torture. His SAW film deals with an executive at a health insurance company and how he and the company decides whom to cover.

Jigsaw, Hoffman, Jill, and Amanda all return. We all see John’s grand scheme and it was great. William (protagonist) had to do some unbelievable things in order to stay alive and save the lives of others.

I really didn’t care that much about the characters like I use to. I agree they should have stopped at SAW III. The ending to SAW III was a great way to end the series. If SAW VI went a bit differently at the end it would’ve been another great way to end the series. I really cant say much except see it.

Rated R for sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture, and language.

A Perfect Getaway Review

Let The Games Begin.

Plot: Two pairs of lovers (Zahn & Jovovich, Olyphant & Sanchez) on a Hawaiian vacation discover that psychopaths are stalking and murdering tourists on the islands.

Cliff and Cydney (Zahn & Jovovich) are on there honeymoon in Hawaii. Then they discover that someone on the island isn’t who they say they are.

Steve Zahn is a funny actor but plays a more serious role. It wasn’t until the end that I thought he did a good job.

Milla Jovovich I think is a a great actress. In this film she does a crappy job, very annoying. I was wanting good acting, like her in the Resident Evil series.

Good acting to everyone except Milla.

The trailer says you will be talking about the twist ending all summer but you wont. I seen it coming. I liked it to a point. Nothing ever happens through out the film. 97 minutes long and nothing goes on until an hour and ten minutes in. So it is boring until then.

Rated R for graphic violence, language including sexual references and some drug use.
