Wow!! What a nice surprise…”Baby Driver” is an awesome Action/Adventure/Drama Crime Caper!
“Baby Driver” is about a guy named “Baby” (Ansel Elgort) who is a getaway driver that needs music piped into his ears via his iPod as he drives. With the music blasting in his ears, Baby whips, spins and eludes cars chasing him as he makes his getaway. Baby believes he has worked his last job and starts to settle into a normal life, but a crime boss (Kevin Spacey) comes calling and lures Baby back in for just one more job, but the heist goes all wrong and Baby’s life and those in his life are in danger. The story unfolds from there…
The movie is fast-paced, fun and very well executed. The music throughout the crime caper is awesome and will have you bouncing in your seat. What a nice surprise! I did not know what to expect when I first heard about “Baby Driver”. The movie is better than the previews indicate.
This is a 4 ½ Star Movie!
“The Fault In Our Stars” is an excellent movie, but not one to see if you are currently dealing with any type of personal tragedy involving a loved one.
“The Fault In Our Stars” is about two extra ordinary teenagers (Gus & Hazel) who meet at a cancer support group. Their friendship grows quickly and they fall in love. Through their extra-ordinary friendship they explore life, love and tragedy. The story unfolds from there…
“The Fault In Our Stars” is based on the best-selling novel by John Green. The story is intense, heart-warming, funny, sweet and tearful. The performances by Shailene Woodley (She was the star in “Divergent”) and Ansel Elgort will have you rooting for them.
This is a tear-jerker, take a box of tissues with you.
This is a 4 star movie
“Divergent” is not bad, but it could be better.
Image living in a world where you live in a distinct faction based on your virtues. Once a person reaches adulthood, they are tested. After testing they are given the chance to choose between 5 distinct factions in which to live out the rest of their lives. Once your choice has been made you must leave the family you grew up with. This includes your Mother, Father and any siblings.
Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) chooses her faction, but during her initiation of her chosen faction she discovers a conspiracy by a faction leader (Kate Winslet) to destroy all “Divergents”. Tris must gain an ally in her training leader who calls himself “Four”(Theo James). Together they must figure out a way to stop the Divergent faction from being destroyed. The story unfolds from there…
“Divergent” is lacking in foundation. Events are not really put in proper perspective. The main actors are great. The problem is the story and how it unfolds. The cinematography and camera angles are excellent.
The running time (2:20) of “Divergent” is a bit long for what you get.
