Movies....The Huntsman!

The Huntsman

 

There were a number of movies that came out recently that I wanted to see, but I never made it to the movie theatre. I’m still pouting about it a little.

 

DeadPool and Divergent are some of the more recent new releases that I missed. I couldn’t talk anyone into going with me. I could go alone, but I live in a smaller area. There are chances that I could have the whole movie theater to myself or worse, that one creepy stalker guy would be there. Um, no thanks. I’m not that desperate…Yet.

 

I’m really looking forward to The Huntsman: Winter’s War. Don’t the graphics look fantastic? I’m really curious to see how this movie turned out. Talk about drool-worthy characters—both the guys and the girls are all eye candy! I really hope they don’t screw it up!

 

How about you? Do you go see a lot of movies or are you like me and never quite make it? Or are you brave enough to venture out on your own?

To go to the movies...or not?

Jupiter Ascending

I don’t go to the movie theatres very often, and when I do, I usually go for movies I know I’m going to like.

 

I love anything sci-fi and paranormal, so when I saw the previews for Jupiter Ascending, I immediately wanted to go see it. The special effects look awesome! And look at the artwork – It rocks!

 

Here is my dilemma…It’s had very mixed reviews (as in almost all bad). So, if you know a movie is going to be bad, would you still fork over the money to go?

Movie Review: Riddick

 

 

Synopsis~

A dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy, the infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.

 

 

I’m a huge fan of Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick. So, when I learned they were creating a third movie, I hurried out and purchased a copy. I couldn’t wait to watch it!

 

 

 

The storyline wasn’t that terribly original, very similar to Pitch Black. Sounds good right? It takes place five years after Chronicles of Riddick. Mercenaries, abandoned planet, criminal hunted for the reward, and vicious creatures waiting to devour them. Katee Sackhoff played one of the mercenaries very well. Complete dedication to her part. She was one of the brighter spots of the movie!

 

Riddick (Vin Diesel) played his normal role…all action and rough edges. I enjoyed the fighting, but there was a lot of down time that made the story lag in parts. The unique world building I was coming to expect was lacking in this story. While I enjoyed some of the graphics, the shoddy bike chase ruined the movie for me. *bummer* I really wanted to like this latest edition.

 

Favorite graphics: The Dog!

Tuesday's Ramblings...

Sorry I haven’t been around a lot. I’ve actually been writing. *gasp* I know, right?

 

The writing is going well. If things keep moving at the same rate, I should be done with a very rough draft by next week. This book will need some heavy re-writes. It’d also gotten a little spicier than expected. Can’t wait to finish and find out how it all turns out!

 

I rewarded myself this weekend and saw the movie Thor. I thought the first movie was okay, but the second movie knocked it out of the park for me. I’m even debating if I should go back and watch it in all its 3D glory. Lots of action. Lots of violence. Loved the touches of humor. Not to mention lots of yummy eye-candy. *sigh*
