Movies From Mars


Denzel don’t hurt ‘em!! I am talking extraordinary actor Denzel Washington. He can play very noble characters or at least you feel they are noble and he can play bad!! When Washington plays a bad guy look the hell out!! In the trailer you think Washington’s Tobin Frost is a intelligent agent who went rouge and Matt Weston(Ryan Reynolds) wants to move up in the CIA and luck would have they have to keep Frost in safe house where Weston’s works.

It is like the Bourne movies and in spy movies you can’t trust anyone. Reynolds is great he wasn’t as good in Green Lantern will be better in Dead Pool but here he is serious as a heart attack!!! He is determined, fierce but still wants the truth. Washington is always good as with the rest of the cast.


This film is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs, the guy who gave us Tarzan. It is a Civil War vet transported to Mars by a medallion and encounters monsters, a beautiful Martian princess and becomes a hero. Sounds great doesn’t it and the movies aren’t bad but it is not what you think. It is not for action hounds for the action doesn’t start until the end of the movie. It is not very comical but it is funny. It is hard to describe unless you see the film.

The cast is good Taylor Kitsch (Gambit from Wolverine) the star, Lynn Collins (also from Wolverine) as the exotic princess and the best villain in movies today Mark Strong (Green Lantern, Kick Ass). It is not making money for Disney didn’t market it correctly and frankly I don’t know how to market it correctly. Really in one sentence it is good but strange.


It is amazing how the writers took a ten minute animated short and made a full animated movie about the title character. He is The Lorax and he speaks for the trees!! It is a very good and faithful to the book about saving the environment. The kids may not get it but the adults do. It has made a lot of money and I can see why. If you have children –TAKE THEM!! It is magical!!

March Movie Madness


Brother, can you spare a therapist? Brandon Sullivan (Michael Fassbender) is a thirty something handsome, successful guy who has a problem: he’s a sex addict!!! He has sex-of any kind, anywhere!! He MUST be satisfied!!! He does however try to have a relationship with Marianne (Nicole Behaire, American Violet) a black employee. He tries to have sex with her but stops for he seems to like her then has sex with a white chick taking her from behind!! This sounds like great porn only he is not enjoying sex very much. He gets worst when his equally needy sister Sissy (Carey Mulligan) come to stay with him.

Director Steve McQueen (not the white actor from Bullet but the British and black) wants you to assume a lot. They are naked in front of each other and he hot for this woman on the train in the beginning of the movie and near the end he lust for her but does he act? Michael Fassbender is a great actor. He doesn’t have to talk much to show his feelings. It is sloooow to the average movie audience. If you like artist porn this is for you-if not wait for video!!


An oil-drilling team plane crashes and the survivors left including Liam Neeson have to brave the billowing snow freezing temperatures and a group of wolves. It is very dramatic but it does have comical moments. It is very good and Neeson is a great actor. I will give you a mini-spoiler if you see the poster for the movie that tells a lot and the WTF ending. Action hounds will not like it but video will be better so you can repeat.


Nicolas Cage is back as Johnny Blaze in Eastern Europe trying to cope with the Ghost Rider inside him and then Moreau (Idris Elba) a priest who will help him if he can save a boy from Satan. Look, if you didn’t like the first movie woo-hoo this one is more insane than the last one. The action is great and Cage is funnier than the last flick. Elba’s Moreau seems to have fun playing this French character. Video is recommended unless you like Cage and the character he is playing.


Sean (Josh Hutcherson Journey to the Center of the Earth 2008) is searching for his grandfather (Michael Caine Alfred in The Dark Knight) and with the help of his stepdad Hank (Dwayne The Rock Johnson Faster), a pilot Gabato (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful daughter Kailani (Vanessa Hudgens Sucker Punch) they find him in a mythical island. It is nothing you haven’t seen before only it is in 3D and it is lovely to look at. The three male leads, Caine, Johnson and Guzman are having a great time in the film. The young people Hutcherson and Hudgens act like the adults. It is family oriented but it is cute. See it if you like Johnson, the 3D experience and the action if not wait for video.
