Exodus: Gods and Kings: The IMAX Experience

This epic adventure from Ridley Scott does not live up to the big shoes it has to fill from the classic source.

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” is a story of the leader Moses (Christian Bale) who dares to try and take on an Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton). Moses will eventually lead over 600,000 slaves on a daring journey from Egypt. The story unfolds from there…

The cinematography is breath-taking. The camera angles are great. The visual effects are very good. Unfortunately that’s about as good as it gets. The dialog is a bit lacking. The story falls short of really gaining your complete attention.

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” just doesn’t live up to the classic source.

This is disappointing as I expected better.

This is a 1 1/2 Star Movie!

Fury (2014)

“Fury (2014)” is intense and definitely not for the weak at heart. You get war violence at its finest.  

It’s 1945 and there’s a Sherman Tank on the move behind enemy lines being commanded by Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) with his 5 man Platoon that contains a rookie. They are out manned and out gunned but that is not going to stop Wardaddy from making a final push at trying to bring the Nazi German Regime to its knees. The story unfolds from there…

“Fury (2014)” is gritty, grimy, brutal and very well crafted. This is a serious war movie with serious war violence. See it if you dare.

This is a 3 1/2 Star Movie!
