I saw two movies recently, Goosebumps and Monster High: Boo York. I will have reviews for them up by Sunday night. Stay tuned.
Rating: 8 out of 10
Summary: Shaun, a mischievous sheep living with his flock at Mossy Bottom Farm, is bored with the routine of life on the farm, he concocts a plan to have a day away, by tricking the farmer into going back to sleep by counting the sheep repeatedly. However, the caravan in which they put the farmer to bed accidentally rolls away, taking him the entire way into the city. Bitzer, the farmer's dog, goes after him, ordering the sheep to stay on the farm until he returns.
Review: Shaun the Sheep is a claymation movie. This movie was so funny. No one really talks. Everything is said using hand gestures, facial expressions, and sounds. The storyline was nicely executed, there were no drags. There are multiple references to British pop culture. You need to stay till the end of the credits because they have some extra scenes.The little baby sheep was so cute.This is a family movie, I went to see it with mine. Kids will like it.

Summary: Evolving from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time, Minions live to serve, but find themselves working for a continual series of unsuccessful masters, from T. Rex to Napoleon. Without a master to grovel for, the Minions fall into a deep depression. But one minion, Kevin, has a plan; accompanied by his pals Stuart and Bob, Kevin sets forth to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. Their search leads them to Scarlet Overkill, the world's first-ever super-villainess.
Review: While the movie was funny. I think some parts were just really boring. Sure it was cool to see how they started working for Gru and the Queen arm wrestling. Otherwise the movie kinda lags.I'm sure kids will love it but take them to the discounted screening. Save yourself some money.
Summary: Despite having solid field training, CIA analyst Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) has spent her entire career as a desk jockey, working hand-in-hand with dashing agent Bradley Fine (Jude Law). Using high-tech equipment and a hidden earpiece, Susan is the guardian angel who helps Bradley avoid danger. However, when Bradley is assassinated by Bulgarian arms dealer Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne), Susan wrangles her way into her first undercover assignment to help capture Boyanov and avenge Bradley.
Review: This movie was really funny. it was kinda like James Bond mixed with a comedy. It was written well with a good plot and story line. It did not drag and drag. There were so many surprises. I haven't been liking what has been coming out of the theaters for the summer (Cough Ant-Man Cough). This movie is rated R but if you are old enough or you have cool parents who will take you to it, then go see it (my mom actually told me to wake up at a descent hour and go see it for cheap). My favorite line was "Amber Valentine, that sounds like a stripper's name". Great, funny movie.
I really liked it. It was really funny when Steve goes language and the others proceed to hang that over his head.Pietro is definitely my favorite. I love that smirk. Most badass though is definitely Wanda. Ultron reminds me of the bad guy from that robot movie who sold pricey upgrades. Weird I know, but that is what I see. The movie had a good storyline plus lots of fighting. I recently noticed an argument for why women do not like action movies, because the women are over sexualized. I don't have a proble with some of the sexualizing like the shirt is a bit tighter than it needs to be but the girls that have like strips of fabric on them is not going to protecting them when fighting. I do not like the sexualizing because it is not practical. That did not happen with Natasha and Wanda. You didn't focus on their bodies. You focused on what made them who they are. We got to see part of Natasha's past where she learns how to fight. There was a lot of substance in the movie. Go out and watch it. There is something for everyone.
Here are a list of movies to watch if you have some time:
Summary: Frumpy high-school senior Bianca (Mae Whitman) has a rude awakening when she learns that her classmates secretly know her as the DUFF -- designated ugly fat friend -- to her prettier and more popular pals. Desperate to reinvent herself, Bianca enlists the aid of Wesley (Robbie Amell), a charming jock. In order to save her senior year from becoming a complete disaster, Bianca must find the confidence to overthrow a judgmental student (Bella Thorne) and revolutionize the school's social order.
Review: This was a fun movie. I thought it was about some high schoolers being stupid. There was a nice message to the movie but it was serious one. They played in a light that showed that you could be your own person and didn't have to be like anyone else. The movie was kept fun with jokes so it wasn't a downer. Good movie to watch with kids.
The Great Gatsby
Summary: Midwest native Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) arrives in 1922 New York in search of the American dream. Nick, a would-be writer, moves in next-door to millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering husband, Tom (Joel Edgerton). Thus, Nick becomes drawn into the captivating world of the wealthy and -- as he bears witness to their illusions and deceits -- pens a tale of impossible love, dreams, and tragedy.
Review: I liked this movie a lot. It was visually pleasing. But I HATE DAISY!! She is a useless bitch. She killed a chick and then let everyone believe that it was Gatsby. She acted like she loved but went back to Tom and his money. It did get a little weird when he flipped between the hospital and the story. I thought I would not like the use of rap but it fit really fell it help show the meaning of the movie.
Kingsman: The Secret Service
Summary: Gary "Eggsy" Unwin (Taron Egerton), whose late father secretly worked for a spy organization, lives in a South London housing estate and seems headed for a life behind bars. However, dapper agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth) recognizes potential in the youth and recruits him to be a trainee in the secret service. Meanwhile, villainous Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson) launches a diabolical plan to solve the problem of climate change via a worldwide killing spree.
Review: The movie was so promising. The previews were the only good parts of the movie. The movie was really boring for the most part. This movie failed to deliver.
Summary: After her father unexpectedly dies, young Ella (Lily James) finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and stepsisters, who reduce her to scullery maid. Despite her circumstances, she refuses to despair. An invitation to a palace ball gives Ella hope that she might reunite with the dashing stranger (Richard Madden) she met in the woods, but her stepmother prevents her from going. Help arrives in the form of a kindly beggar woman who has a magic touch for ordinary things.
Review: Visually this movie was very nice. I loved the costumes and then scenery. But it was very boring. Sometimes when you see the story again you like it because it was shown a different way. this movie was easy on the eyes but very boring. Just watch the old Cinderella.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Summary: Brash space adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) finds himself the quarry of relentless bounty hunters after he steals an orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain. To evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with four disparate misfits: gun-toting Rocket Raccoon, treelike-humanoid Groot, enigmatic Gamora, and vengeance-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when he discovers the orb's true power and the cosmic threat it poses, Quill must rally his ragtag group to save the universe.
Review: Everyone said that this movie was really good. I found it hard to watch. It was hard to follow what was going on. There were good funny bits that I got but for the most part the movie was hard to follow. I wished the movie was better planned out.
Into the Woods
Summary: As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Meryl Streep), a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are childless. Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.
Review: The movie was good. It seemed like it was about bringing different fairy tales together. The singing was good. The movie was half way through when it seemed like it was over. Then there was a female giant. I liked how the movie was wrapped up.Good movie to watch on a lazy day.
Okay I owe you 3 reviews: The Duff, The Great Gatsby, and Kingsman: The Secret Service. I will be watching a movie tonight. If I get bored with it I will pick out another one.
I watched The Duff and Kingsman: The Secret Service. Tonight I am probably going to watch another one.
What would you consider a classic? It doesn't have to be what movie critics consider a master piece. I want to know what movie you love to watch and should go down in history.
Rating: 7 out of 10
Summary: The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny Kapoor, and its making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina.

Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel, the keeper of everyone's secrets. As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself.
Review: This was a really fun happy movie to watch. It did get sad and my bitter heart started to cry. But I as happy again in the end. Kushal was attractive to so yay. If you want a movie to make you happy and but a smile on your face you should watch this movie. Warning you might cry at the end though.
This movie is completely and utterly disgusting. It promotes violence. They mask it over with "love". They even confessed that it was abuse but bring up the Hunger Games and "it was just a book". Hunger Games had a message about a dystopian future. And then women claim that it is really steamy and hot. I can read better smut online for free written by virgin teenagers. Plus you can just go on Tumblr to watch porn. And guess what it doesn't cost a thing. Don't go see this train wreck of violence. I even read part of the book. *Yawn*
Summary: In 1939, newly created British intelligence agency MI6 recruits Cambridge mathematics alumnus Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to crack Nazi codes, including Enigma -- which cryptanalysts had thought unbreakable. Turing's team, including Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley), analyze Enigma messages while he builds a machine to decipher them. Turing and team finally succeed and become heroes, but in 1952, the quiet genius encounters disgrace when authorities reveal he is gay and send him to prison.
Review: I thought that it was really good. I didn't know the whole story but I was surprised when they mentioned he was gay. I just didn't expect it. However all I could think about was how much Alan was like Sherlock. I would say that you should watch the movie. It is very good.
I saw the Imitation Game yesterday. I will try to have a review done in a little bit.
This month the last of the Hobbit movies is coming out. I plan to go see it, so there will be a review of it. And Avengers: Age of Ultron is coming out in my birthday month. A few nights ago I watched Nightmare before Christmas all the way through. I have a habit of leaving movies to do things. It was good but I won't give it an official review.
Two years after the Battle of New York, Steve Rogers works in Washington D.C. for the espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. under Director Nick Fury, while adjusting to contemporary society. Rogers and Agent Natasha Romanoff are sent with S.H.I.E.L.D.'s counter-terrorism S.T.R.I.K.E. team, led by Agent Rumlow, to free hostages aboard a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel from Georges Batroc and his mercenaries. Mid-mission, Rogers discovers Romanoff has another agenda: to extract data from the ship's computers for Fury. Rogers returns to the Triskelion, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s headquarters to confront Fury and is briefed about Project Insight: three Helicarriers linked to spy satellites, designed to preemptively eliminate threats. Unable to decrypt the data recovered by Romanoff, Fury becomes suspicious about Insight and asks senior S.H.I.E.L.D. official Alexander Pierce to delay the project.
On his way to rendezvous with Maria Hill, Fury is ambushed by assailants led by a mysterious assassin called the Winter Soldier. Fury escapes to Rogers' apartment, and warns Rogers that S.H.I.E.L.D. is compromised. After handing Rogers a flash drive containing data from the ship, Fury is gunned down by the Winter Soldier. Fury dies in surgery, and Hill recovers the body. The next day, Pierce summons Rogers to the Triskelion. When Rogers withholds Fury's information, Pierce brands him a fugitive. Hunted by S.T.R.I.K.E., Rogers meets with Romanoff. Using data in the flash drive they discover a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. bunker in New Jersey, where they activate a supercomputer containing the preserved consciousness of Arnim Zola. Zola reveals that ever since S.H.I.E.L.D. was founded after World War II, Hydra has secretly operated within its ranks, sowing global chaos with the goal that humanity would willingly surrender its freedom in exchange for security. The pair narrowly escape death when a S.H.I.E.L.D. missile destroys the bunker.
Rogers and Romanoff enlist the help of former USAF pararescueman Sam Wilson, whom Rogers befriended, and acquire his powered "Falcon" wingpack. Deducing that S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jasper Sitwell is a Hydra mole, they force him to divulge that Zola developed a data-mining algorithm that can identify individuals who might become future threats to Hydra's plans. The Insight Helicarriers will sweep the globe, using satellite-guided guns to eliminate these individuals. Rogers, Romanoff, and Wilson are ambushed by the Winter Soldier, who kills Sitwell. During the fight, Rogers recognizes the Winter Soldier as Bucky Barnes, his friend who was captured and experimented upon during WWII. Hill manages to extract the trio to a safehouse where Fury, who had faked his death, is waiting with plans to sabotage the Helicarriers by replacing their controller chips.
After the World Security Council members arrive for the Helicarriers' launch, Rogers broadcasts Hydra's plot to everyone at the Triskelion. Romanoff, disguised as one of the Council members, disarms Pierce. Fury arrives and forces Pierce to unlock S.H.I.E.L.D's database so that Romanoff can leak classified information, exposing Hydra to the public. Following a struggle, Fury shoots Pierce dead. Meanwhile, Rogers and Wilson storm two Helicarriers and replace the controller chips, but the Winter Soldier destroys Wilson's suit and fights Rogers on the third. Rogers fends him off and replaces the final chip, allowing Hill to take control and have the vessels destroy each other. Rogers refuses to fight the Winter Soldier in an attempt to reach his friend, but as the ship collides with the Triskelion, Rogers is thrown out into the Potomac River. The Winter Soldier rescues the unconscious Rogers before disappearing into the woods. With S.H.I.E.L.D. in disarray, Romanoff appears before a Senate subcommittee and Fury, under the cover of his apparent death, heads to Eastern Europe in pursuit of Hydra's remaining cells. Rogers and Wilson decide to find the Winter Soldier, while Rumlow, who was a double agent for Hydra, is hospitalized following the Triskelion's destruction.
In a mid-credits scene, Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, at a Hydra lab, proclaims that the "age of miracles" has begun as scientists examine an energy-filled scepter[N 1] and two prisoners: one with superhuman speed, the other with telekinetic powers. In a post-credits scene, the Winter Soldier visits a Bucky memorial at the Smithsonian Institution.
All I have to say is i loved it. And hot dam Bucky. Why are the bad guys so hot?
I know that Captain America: WInter Soldier came out awhile ago. But I just watched it on Thursday. I am going to try to post a review of it today.
