Some parts are super cheesy but not to the point that it's off putting, all the superfluous stuff seems to knit together the storyline somehow... G compared it to an 80's cop show... I think it has a lot more gratuitous violence! Bottom line is.. I really enjoyed the movie and I didn't think I would... so, if you enjoy watching heads fly off bodies, then definitely check this movie out!!
I realise I have told you nothing of the storyline.. but you don't really need to know before you start watching it.. I didn't!
Monkey rates Machete at 4 out of 5. For gratuitous violence and a bit of spoofy hilarity, this is a must see!
Though there were parts where I zoned out again.. overall it wasn't a very gripping movie, I think partially you feel a bit like you're watching Groundhog Day and the repetition made my brain zone out even though something new happens each time and he learns a bit more about the situation.. maybe if I had been paying more attention I would have enjoyed it more as I would have picked up subtleties in each "playback"..
The twist at the end really threw me for a loop and I can't really say I understand the complexity the movie was trying to convey... the mini love story that happens is interesting and is really the only thing that carries any character development.
Monkey rates Source Code at 2 out of 5. There wasn't enough stuff blowing up, gratuitous violence or character development to really get me into the movie... and the underlying techie storyline just made my brain hurt...
This is yet another movie that was highly advertised... again JGP threw it on one afternoon and as per usual I wasn't really paying attention.. though I did get drawn into it.. it was a bit slow to get going in my opinion but it was worth the wait for the storyline to develop..
There was blood shed and one scene which made me watch through my fingers... it is an interesting idea, if we were able to use our minds to its full potential, where would it take us? tho I'm not convinced all the rich and powerful are necessarily the ones with loads of clarity!!
I liked the twist at the end though not necessarily where the movie ended up.. does that make sense??
Monkey rates Limitless at 3.5 out of 5. There was enough violence and blood shed to keep me entertained, the little plot twists kept it interesting but I probably wouldn't buy the DVD...
Well, there you have it.. my first movie reviews... not really the most detailed or based even remotely on cinematography... pretty much based solely on their entertainment value for me! So, how did I do?? Do you care?? Should I tell you my opinions next time I watch a movie or should I just keep it to myself??
