Charlie’s Angels

Another reboot of the TV classic “Charlie’s Angels”. I guess it’s if you don’t succeed try, try again until you do.

Sabina, Elena and Jane are working for the mysterious Charles Townsend Agency that has successfully taken the security and investigation business International. There are many “Bosley’s stationed around the world.

Elena is a Systems Engineer for a scientific company who has developed a device that can be told what to do and the device will do it. This includes everything from turning on lights to killing people… Of course the device falls into the wrong hands and there are many people trying to buy or get their hands on the device at any means possible. So in comes Charlie’s Angels to the rescue. The story unfolds from there…
The plot is good, it’s the execution of the plot that is the problem with “Charlie’s Angels”. The story has holes that don’t get filled. The cinematography is not that great. There are some missed opportunities to showcase places like Istanbul and London. Some of the action scenes are hard to follow. There is also some bad acting that also contributes to the problems with “Charlie’s Angels”.

Charlie’s Angels is best left on the small screen.

We can watch the reruns of the original Charles Townsend Agency.

This is a 2 Star Movie!!

Hunger Games: Catching Fire The IMAX Experience

This second installment finds Katniss Everdeen back at home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. Part of winning means the winners must promote the games, so Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) embark on a cross country district by district tour. They are also both trying to convince President Snow (Donald Sutherland) that they do love each other and it was the right thing to allow them to be co-winners of the 74th Hunger Games. It would seem though that President Snow is not convinced.

The 75th Annual Hunger Games is approaching. President Snow has decided that all past winners must compete again to mark the 75th Anniversary. The story unfolds from there…

There is a nice continuation from the first installment. “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” flows nicely, keeps you engaged and thoroughly entertained. The cinematography is breathtaking and the special effects are awesome. My only problem was the ending is a bit weird, but the door is open for installment number three.
If you are a fan of the Hunger Games Franchise then “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is a must see.
