Movie Reviews

Movie Reviews:

“New Year’s Eve”, ***, This is movie has the big names in it, Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer for example, and turned out better than I thought it was going to be. It tells intertwining stories of individual New Yorkers as they travel through New Year’s eve.(You ever wonder why they don’t do a movie like this in Lubbock, Texas? It is always New York!!) Hilary Swank depicts a producer of the Times-Square New Year’s Eve show and Aston Kutcher plays someone who is impatient with the celebration of New Year’s eve. Rated: PG-13 for language that includes sexual references.

“Sherlock Homes: Games of Shadows”, ***, Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law, and Jared Harris. Holmes is challenged by criminal mastermind Professor Moriarty and they go at each other throughout the movie. The crime is murder and the objective is to prove that the mastermind was behind it. Coupled with the help from Dr. Watson(Law) and even after taking the time to celebrate the bacholor party for Watson, Holmes solves the crime again. There was too much gadgetry for me, seem like there was something unlocking something else that was attached to something else to the point I became dizzy. But an entertaining movie, but not above three stars. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and some drug material.

“The Sitter”, ***, Not exactly family entertainment but somewhat entertaining, and funny. The plot, basically finds a suspended college student and the world’s most irresponsible baby sitter, played by Jonah Hill, deciding to take the next door neighbor’s, three ill mannered children, on an overnight adventure in New York City. Need I say more? Go see the movie for details. Rated R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language, drug material and some violence.

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1”, ***, For those folks out there liking the vampire craze right now, this is a natural. Since I went out of desperation for a current movie and I don’t like vampire movies, I will admit that giving a three star was a stretch. But if you like this stuff you will really enjoy finding out what happens when a mortal marries a vampire. Enough said!! Rated PG-13 for disturbing images, violence, sexuality, partial nudity and some thematic elements.

“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”, ****, Interesting plot with the Mission Impossible team being shut down for unknown reasons. The team then must go undercover to clear their organizations name and insure survival of team members. Tom Cruise again heads up the team and there are some awesome action shots and special effects. Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action and violence.

EA, .........:),
