From the studio that brought you movies like Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., and The Incredibles comes another great film, and one that I might add is not only enjoyable, but informative both for kids and adults.
Furious 7 is the latest installment that follows the high speed endeavors of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his crew. After taking down the international terrorist Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), Toretto and company go back to the United States. Brian O’Connor, his right hand man, starts a family with Mia Toretto (Jordana Brewster), Dom’s sister and from there everyone works on ushering back normal lives. However, Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), Owen’s older brother, is bent on revenge. With Deckard's quest for vengeance in full throttle, Dom must do whatever is necessary to protect his family. Reprising their roles are Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Tej (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges), Roman (Tyrese Gibson), and Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson).
After plenty of back and forth about the status of the latest installment in the Bourne series, we finally have confirmation that Matt Damon will be reprising his role as the lethal Jason Bourne. The proof? Well, this tweet posted by film producer, Frank Marshall pretty much says it all.
Overall, The Judge was a decent movie to watch despite the shortcomings the story had. I hope to see more acting outside of Marvel from Robert Downey Jr. and I still hope that he’ll be with Marvel for a while. It’s his acting that helped carry a good part of the movie when the story was stilted and because of that it’s worth watching. Go see The Judge and see what verdict you’ll give it once it’s over.
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation doesn’t try to be anything that it isn’t. It is positively entertaining and blends the best elements from the franchise’s previous four installments. Cruise has done it yet again.
When I first heard the Terminator franchise would once again be making a comeback, I was extremely skeptical. Do I love Terminator? Of course! Nothing would make me happier than to see a well executed sequel, but there were two things that made me stunt my zeal: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and Terminator: Salvation. Both films proved to dismantle the once astounding franchise, whose greatness we can attribute to director James Cameron, creator of many wonderfully entertaining films. Although I had my reservations, I decided to watch ‘Arrnald’ and company yet again return for some thrilling action and some wibbly wobbly timey wimey adventures.
Tomorrowland is very similar to Frank Walker’s jetpack. It may be flawed and expected, but it certainly does try to dream big.
