“Horrible Bosses 2” is nowhere near as funny or comical as it’s 2011 predecessor.
In this installment, Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) attempt to go in business together making a shower head that produces soap along with the water as you shower. They find what they believe is a backer for their business, but these guys have no business savvy. They hire people and get an assembly line going and make 4300 shower heads. When they go to meet their presumed backer he balks. The story unfolds from there…
“Horrible Bosses 2” is only slightly funny and only mildly entertaining. It’s more stupid than funny. Black Friday shopping would provide more entertainment and be more stimulating.
Jamie Foxx makes an appearance and while he is in the scenes everything is hysterical after that nothing.
I would suggest waiting for “Horrible Bosses 2” on DVD or Blue-Ray.
This is a 1 1/2 Star Movie.
The third installment of The Hunger Games franchise is long on intrigue and suspense, but very short on action.
Picking up were the previous installment left off Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) finds herself in a hospital ward in District 13 after she had destroyed the Hunger Games forever.
President Alma Coin (Julianne Moore)of District 13 wants Katniss to be “The Mocking Jay”, but after a brief conversation with her changes her mind. Katniss along with other convince the president that she can and will.
District 13 is tries to get all of the other districts to join together to take down the Capitol, but as they are mounting a charge it is determined that Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) is more in need of being rescued from under President Snow’s (Donald Sutherland) watchful eyes as it appears he is being forced to say and act as if everything that Katniss has done is wrong. The story unfolds from there…
The newly added cast members give this installment a shot in the arm, but it still falls short of being as good as its predecessors.
“The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay PT1” is long on intrigue and suspense, but the action you have come to expect just isn’t there.
The end sets up nicely for the fourth installment.
This is one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last movies. To say the least the situation is very tragic. Philip Seymour Hoffman was an excellent actor. He will truly be missed.
This is a 3 Star Movie!
“Beyond The Lights” is a story about the latest music super star known as Noni. Everything is not as it seems. The pressures of super stardom start to get to Noni. She meets the young police officer Kaz (Nate Parker) who is assigned to her security detail. He “sees” the real Noni. They get to know each other and soon fall hard and fast despite the discouragement of others.
Kaz has political aspirations and is encouraged to pursue them. But ultimately it’s Kaz and his love for Noni that help her find her true voice. The story unfolds from there…
“Beyond The Lights” is very well done. The movie is very enjoyable. Most of what you see is a true picture of the entertainment world and how music superstars often live and how they are treated.
Both Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker look great together!!
This is a 4 Star Movie!!
“Interstellar” is way too long and it attempts to reach beyond its concepts.
It’s believed that mankind is coming to an end, so a team of scientists and astronauts search for life on other planets in the hopes that mankind may continue to exist beyond the stars.
“Interstellar” is a visual splendor. It will blow your mind. The cinematography and special effects are off the charts. It’s definitely a must see in IMAX so you can get the full effect.
Now for the bad news…the movie drags, its way too long and at times does not make sense. I could not wait for it to be over. I practically ran from the theater because I spent most of my afternoon there. Personally I did not like the subject matter. All that aside…Director Christopher Nolan delivers thrills and chills.
This is a 3 1/2 Star Movie!
For all you “Fast & Furious” Fans…I saw an awesome trailer of “Fast & Furious 7”. It looks really good…it opens 4/3/15
