Terminator Genisys (2015)



If Rise of the Machines (2013) and Salvation (2009) have taught us anything, it’s that it is hard to live up to Terminator (1984) and Judgement Day (1991). The story was nice, it wasn’t as incoherent as you’d expected it to be. I mean, the idea of an aging terminator worked and the idea that the war was brought to the present also worked (kind of). Sure enough the story did fall apart towards the end, the helicopter chase scene marked the movies spiral into Science Fiction Fantasy, but the fact that the movie held it together till then was commendable.

Inside Out (2015)



Well, I like the theme of the movie. Growing up is a hard thing to do and it was nicely shown. There are a lot of problems as well. The whole idea of trying to explain why you feel certain things takes you out of that experience. Like the Truman Show ending when Truman (Jim Carrey) says “you never had a camera in my head”, you want to feel certain thing you don’t want them explained. Oh the fun personality island is destroyed Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) doesn’t want to have fun anymore, you might as well have Bugs Bunny pop up with a sign saying “she doesn’t want to have any fun anymore”.

Jurassic World (2015)



It took Sam Neill five minutes to make the Raptors look like the most dangerous animal that ever existed, took Chris Pratt less than that to make them look like six foot Turkeys (that’s Jurassic Park humor). The idea of “controlling” Raptors was pointless, why would you do that? That’s what makes them scary! Secondly, I’d be scared to be in a zoo with an escaped lion, the idea of a dinosaur running loose in a park is scary enough, they had to make up a new dinosaur to make it scarier? Why? The "Indominus Rex", guess all the stupid names were not taken.

Insidious Chapter 3 (2015)



As a prequel it was pretty cool, it answered some questions, gave little hints to the older movies, it was nice. But as a movie it was like any other horror movie, especially towards the end. What I really loved about Insidious 1 and 2 was the directing. James Wan did an amazing job with those two movies even with The Conjuring he did a brilliant job directing it. Here Leigh Whannell takes his first shot at directing and you can tell that he tried to keep it similar to the previous movie but it’s not quite there.

Entourage (2015)



I’ll start off by saying; no, I have not watched the TV show but I did get what was going on and who the characters were. So you don’t have to watch the TV show to get what’s going on, which is a good thing. Now, was this a great movie? No, definitely not. Was it funny? Yes it was. Was it entertaining? Well, maybe. It’s just one of those movies where there’s nothing wrong with it but at the same time there’s nothing great about it. Maybe if you’re a fan of the TV show this might be interesting but if you’re not, then this might be a gamble.

Spy (2015)



The movie started out kind of predictable and a little cheesy but somewhere along the way it got really funny and entertaining. The best part about the movie are the characters, some really authentic and funny characters like; Rick Ford (Jason Statham) the clumsy spy, Raina (Rose Byme) the spoiled brat, Nancy (Miranda Hart) the best friend, Elaine Crocker (Allison Janney) the mean boss and Aldo (Peter Serafinowicz) Pepé Le Pew personified make this movie irresistibly funny. As for Melissa McCarthy, she was ok, I mean I liked mean McCarthy but it was just so much of a character switch that it was weird, it was like she had multiple personality (like Jim Carrey in Me, Myself and Irene).

The Avengers Age of Ultron (2015)



When The Avengers came out in 2012 it was something new, it was something no one had ever seen before, and it was awesome. But marvel has been turning out a lot of similar movies Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s slowly coming to a point where the wow factor is going down. Give us something more, give us actual cinema, let’s not turn this into a bunch of good looking people running around in skintight costumes. If you take away all the glitz and glamor it’s just The Expendables with a bigger budget.



The Age of Adaline (2015)



Another movie that I have mixed emotions for; on one hand its shot in beautiful San Francisco and is a sweet story on the other hand it gets weird with dating father and son. Cinematography was amazing, captured San Francisco in all its beauty, just brilliant stuff. Loved the casting, great choice, pretty much everything was nice expect for the story. Apart from the weird father and son incident, they try to explain why Adaline (Blake Lively) doesn’t age, they try their best to be smart/funny, why? The fuck are you trying to do? Say that she doesn’t age and shut the fuck up, we don’t care! What would someone do if they didn’t age a single day was the interesting part about the story, especially Adaline, someone as sweet and kind as her stuck in time, punished to see everything she loves wither away with time except for her



Little Boy (2015)


Personally, I liked this movie but honestly the movie was a little shaky. The plot of the movie changed from a boy wanting his dad to return safely from war to this weird movie about war and its effect on people. Not that I have anything against those type of movies but then you have to make it that kind of a movie, not a movie about a boy missing his dad and then mix in the effect of war on a small community. Especially with Mr. Hashimoto (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), a Japanese immigrant in the USA during the attack on Pearl Harbor, it creates a great setting but it doesn’t fit into a plot about a boy wanting his father back. It’s like they took this two different ideas and just forced it together.
