My Review of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

I am honestly not a "Twi-Hard", mainly because I've never read any of the really popular books. However, I have found some of the "Twilight Saga" movies to be quite entertaining, not "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" though. I just found it to be utterly boring. Now the second part to that movie, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2", has arrived. Despite Part 1 being bad, I was still super excited to go see Part 2. After experiencing it I can say it was surprisingly.....very good.

At the end of "BD Part 1" we find out that Bella (Kristen Stewart) is alive, and she's now a vampire like her husband Edward (Robert Pattinson). She had just given birth to there child, Renesmee. Now, in "BD Part 2", after the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi and there leader Aro (Michael Sheen). Renesmee even has Jacob (Taylor Lautner) along the way to protect her.

The story is basically what you would expect from a "Twilight" movie, it's not great. However, this movie probably has the best and most interesting story of all the "Twilight" films. It never, at all, dragged on and I was interested the whole time. However, the dialogue was VERY corny.

My Review of Skyfall

James Bond is Back and better then ever! The franchise has now been around now for 50 years and I must say I was super excited for this movie, and I was very happy to see all the positive buzz and great reviews, especially after the last installment in the Bond Trilogy, "Quantum of Solace", which I was not a fan of at all! But I can honestly say "Skyfall" makes up for that gap.

"Skyfall" begins with an amazing opening sequence/chase scene, as the Bond movies always do. Those scenes are always usually great, and this one was to. After this scene, Bond is accidentally shot by another agent (Naomie Harris), while fighting someone on a moving train. He then falls into the river below and everyone presumes he's dead, but it turns out he's not, months later he turns up because he found out the hard drive he was after while fighting on the train got into the hands of Silva (played by Javier Badam). He then gets comes out of retirement to try to stop Silva. I must say though, the movie is mostly about Bond and M's (played by Judi Dench) relationship.

The movie's story was really good, it was divided pretty evenly between dialogue and action, and in all of those scenes I was quite interested. But it's the action that really steals the show! Most of the action scenes were completely awesome, and it was pretty much action packed from the opening chase scene, all the way to the epic ending, and I must say the ending was quite unpredictable!

My Review of Wreck-It Ralph

When I saw the first trailer for "Wreck-It Ralph", I thought it looked like a really fun movie, even though I'm not a huge gamer. So, of course, I decided to go see it! And I really had a fun time at the movies!

The movie is about Ralph (John C. Reilly) who is tired of being the villain and wants be a hero like Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), so in order to become a hero he takes matters into his own hands and sets off game-jumping across the arcade. On his quest, he meets the very tough, Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game "Hero's Duty". But it's the misfit Vanellope von Schweetz  (Sarah Silverman) from the candy themed cart racing game, "Sugar Rush", whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy from another game, this threatens the entire arcade. So now its up to Ralph to save the day and become the hero!

The story in this movie is very clever, colorful, and fun! I must say just the movie alone is just very original. I never even thought of having a movie where all these awesome video game characters come together! So I was pretty excited to see this movie come out, and end up being a really good movie!
