My Review of Rock of Ages

"Rock of Ages"  is based on the very popular Broadway Musical and was one of my most anticapated movies of this Summer, mainly because of the fantastic soundtrack. But when I saw the reviews, I was upset! But after seeing it for myself, I can say I had a really fun time at the movies.

"Rock of Ages" has a very hard plot to explain! But basically it's about lots of different peoples views on Rock & Roll. Some LOVE it and some HATE it!

The movie has a great cast! That includes Julianne Hough (from this Year's Remake of "Footloose"), Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand, Bryan Cranstan, Alec Baldwin, etc.. Yes the cast is that good! But my favorite performance was from Tom Cruise, who played Stacie Jaxx, and I must say he played him brilliantly! And also Catherine Zeta-Jones, who played the "Mayors Wife", did a wonderful job and her song in the movie was my favorite of them all. So overall I was VERY happy with the cast.

My Review of Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

I'm not really a big fan of the "Madagascar" trilogy. I enjoyed the first one, but the second one came as a bit of a disappointment. Now we have a 3rd movie in the trilogy. I must say I was super disappointed with this installment.

The movie follows Alex the Lion (Ben Stiller), Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock), Gloria the Hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith), and Melman the Giraffe (David Schwimmer) as they are STILL are trying to get back to their New York Zoo. Along the way, in order to get back, they join a circus. Where they meet even more animals. Some of those new characters are voiced by Jessica Chastain, Martin Short, and Bryan Cranston. The voice cast I can say did a pretty good job, and I liked some of the new voice's. But Marty the Zebra/Chris Rock is still my favorite character for this series. I should also say there is a so called "villain" in this movie named Capitaine Chantel DuBois, who tries to hunt down the whole gang, and I must say she's the worst villain I've ever seen for an animated movie! She was just completely dumb!

My Review of Prometheus

"Prometheus" was one of my most anticipated movies of this year. I was just very curious and excited about it. After seeing it, I have to say, I loved it!

"Prometheus" is about two scientists who are looking for the beginning of our human race. There search takes them FAR away to a distant planet. What they find, I will tell you, is not good. This story works out REALLY well, and it really grabs you and interests you.

The cast of "Prometheus" was very good. You have Noomi Rapace who played Elizebeth Shaw, Charlize Theron, who played Meradith Vickers, and I will say she's not as good in this role as she was in last weeks "Snow White & the Huntsman". Then you also have Michael Fassbender, playing David the Android, who is amazing in this role and in my opinion, he deserves an Oscar nomination. He definetly had the stand out performance in the movie.

My Review of Snow White & the Huntsman

Going into "Snow White & the Huntsman" all I was really hoping was that it would be better then "Mirror Mirror", and I will tell you it definitely is! It is also one of the biggest surprises of this year so far!!

The movie follows Snow White running from the Evil Queen alongside a Huntsman. It's a pretty easy story to follow and it works! Although on some levels it did lack story.

The cast in this movie is in one word amazing. I thought everyone did a great job ESPECIALLY Charlize Theron, who plays who plays the Evil Queen and plays her brilliantly!  You also have Chris Hemsworth, who plays the Huntsman and Kristin Stewart, who plays Snow White, they both do a pretty good job. I did like Kristin Stewart better in this movie then in the last "Twilight" movie, but I still think she could do a lot better. But overall the cast did a great job!

My Review of Men in Black 3

I was really looking forward to seeing "Men in Black 3", although I didn't like the second one, I absolutely loved the first one. So I figuired "Men in Black 3" could be either a hit or a miss. Turns out it was neither.

This movie follows Agent J (Will Smith) and Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) trying to stop Boris the Animal from starting an alien invasion. So this requires Agent J to go back in time!  I thought Boris was an ok villian, but he could have been made a lot better, and as usual the cast does amazing. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones were great as usual, but Josh Brolin, who plays a younger Agent K, really stole the show! So a lot of this movie is made by the cast!
