Over a month ago I promised some reviews… I don’t like to break promises, so here it goes:
Year One (2009) stars Jack Black and Michael Cera playing their usual roles. The story is pretty dumb and messy and doesn’t really go anywhere. There are a few funny moments, a few insulting moments, and many dumb moments. If you don’t ever see this one, you aren’t missing much. It runs a long-feeling 97 minutes and is rated PG-13. I give it 3 ramheads out of 10.
The Princess and the Frog (2009) feels to me like a genuine Disney movie. It was great to see the comeback of cartoons. This film, though, felt to me like a 2nd tier Disney flick. It doesn’t meet the standards of The Lion King, Up, or Aladdin in my opinion. I enjoyed it, but it didn’t wow me like these other ones did. It runs 97 minutes and is rated G. I give it 7 ramheads out of 10.Kick-Ass (2010) is a somewhat humorous, overly violent, realistic comic-book film. If the stuff that happens in comics happen in real-life, this would probably be it. People would get killed, maimed, and it would be gory. It was an interesting film to watch, but not really my cup of tea. It was strange seeing such a young girl (Chloe Moretz) being so violent. It runs 117 minutes and is rated R. I give it a slightly above average 6 out of 10. NOT a family film.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010) is an entertaining, funny, ride based on the Mickey classic in Fantasia. It stars Jay Baruchel and Nicolas Cage. It is pure entertainment. To me it felt like Taken and National Treasure, you kind of just go with it. This is one of my new favorite Disney flicks and I hope you can have fun with it too. It runs 109 minutes and is rated PG. I give it 8 ramheads out of 10.
Enjoy Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 tonight at midnight (or this weekend if you aren’t a die hard fan). More reviews coming soon! Cheers!
