Summer 2012 is Dark, Black and Hasbro Safe


The supernatural soap that was on TV is now a movie and it is not bad. The trailers are very misleading. It is very serious for most of the film and lavished. The story is about Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp) imprisoned and turned into a vampire by the jealous witch Angelique (Eva Green). Ms. Green is sexy and evil!! He is set free and wants to rebuild the Collins family back to greatness. Now Angelique has taken over the business and still wants him. Depp’s Baranabas knows how to be weird and has to adjust to the modern world. Director Tim Burton makes great gothic movies and this is no exception. There is comedy in it but nothing like the trailer. If you like the classic Dark Shadows you should see it.


When you mix Transformers, Independence Day and a reason you should join the navy and you have this picture. Plot not much a practice test the ships what they can do in a crisis becomes the real thing when aliens decide to take over. Peter Berg is good director and makes being in the navy like the most patriotic thing in the world. It is good if you like action. The most important thing does anyone say: “You sunk my battleship” is said but not directly.


If you didn’t like MIB2 this one is a little better. J. and K. (Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones) are back but K is in danger from being non-existent by a villain named Boris The Animal (Jermaine Clement) so J has to go back in the past and save K. Plot not really important but the relationship between Smith and Jones is good. Josh Brolin as the younger K is just outstanding!! It is very funny and near the end very touching. If you are looking for a popcorn movie this is it.


Action hounds rejoice Jason Statham is in a movie!!! It is not a summer movie but I finally got to see it. It is not a great movie but it has a huge body count. Story young Asian girl has knowledge that organizes crime wants and is saved by Statham. Lots of action after the first fifteen minutes. It did do well in theaters but it will on video. Has some acting for Statham but it is action we want before Expendables 2.

Superhero Fans, Assemble!


Six superheroes Iron Man, (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) join forces with S.H.I.E.L.D. run by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to combat Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his evil band of aliens to save the earth. The 2012 summer of movies kick off with a blast with this film!! It is just amazing.

The director Jess Whedon (Serenity, Buffy The Vampire Slayer--the TV series has made a popcorn movie no one thought Hollywood could. The movie may drag to some because they are establishing characters and plot, but the finale is worth the admission!! All the actors are just great!! This is why you go to the movies!! SEE IT BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!!! And don’t jump up when the credit rolls--STAY!!!!

Blacks, Clowns and Crazy Cabins


I don’t know what to say about this movie. You will either find it brilliant or bizarre. I found it bizarre!! It gives a new spin on a group of young people in an isolated place. It is funny and gory. It is not your typical slasher film. I can’t believe the person involved with this is the great Joss Whedon who did Buffy the movie and the series and the upcoming superhero movie The Avengers. If you can wait, wait for IFC.


This film is not a biography about the three funny men, this is about the guys in the modern world. Moe (Chris Diamantopoulos) Larry (Sean Hayes, Will and Grace) and Curly (Will Sasso) born in an orphanage want to save the place from closing go on a slapstick adventure. Plot not really important but the physical comedy is!! The three actors did a good job especially Sasso. It is not great comedy but it is funny. It will do extremely well on video!!!


Wow a black romantic comedy that isn’t a Tyler Perry movie!!! It is based on the bestselling book by Steve Hardy who tells woman how to get men to get and keep the men they want. It is a very good black battle of the sexes. Steve Hardy is a smart man. He is also executive producer. The black people in the film are middle to upper class. The actors are attractive, sexy and professional. It is well done with a happy ending. The film is a success for black audiences are hungry for a movie that shows them as people. Highly recommended!!!
