Movie Review: Moana

Dwayne Johnson's Moana-Obsessed Daughter Is Still Unaware Of One ...

The movie Moana is about a girl who will become leader of her island but because of this lava monster called Te Ka her island will be destroyed. The ocean chooses her to help stop the monster by finding Dwayne Johnson I mean Maui, who will help her defeat Te Ka with the heart of the goddess Te Fiti which Maui stole and which had started this whole mess in the first place. Maui and Moana go on the adventure and both help each other in big ways. Maui teachers her how to sail while she helps him conquer his inner demons and helps save him from a monster named Tamatoa and then she helps him learn how to use the power of his magic hook that can turn him into any animal. However when they fight Te Ka they have a dispute, he leaves and Moana feels like she isn’t the one to help defeat Te Ka, but later gets the confidence again and Maui helps again and she learns Te Ka is Te Fiti and defeats her by giving her her heart again and then happy ever after.

I was surprised by the movie. I liked it more than I thought, the music was half and half for me. I liked the villain song and You’re Welcome song but the ones Moana sang were a bit corny to me. I also like the design of Maui and Moana, both different in terms of other Disney characters. Moana has muscles and not a very tiny waist. And Maui has muscles but not typical muscles you think of. Gaston and Hercules’ muscles look like muscle you usually think of but Maui almost kinda looks fat. So all in all I like the movie for the most part.

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Review

Image result for sonic the hedgehog 2020

After the first trailer had an overwhelmingly negative reaction to the original design of Sonic. 

The new official trailer showed the redesign of Sonic, it looked perfect and finally here are my thoughts: I enjoyed the movie, it’s fun and entertaining…Sonic looked cool, seeing him in action…the rings and facing Doctor Robotnik aka Eggman.

There’s a lot of great scenes in the movie, my favorite scene is Sonic facing Eggman. Actor Ben Schwartz voicing Sonic did an excellent job.

Jim Carrey did great as Robotnik/Eggman, when you watch the film…his performance as Robotnik is cross-between his previous roles the Riddler and Ace Ventura.

I give this movie an A

The Gentlemen Movie Review

Here are my thoughts; I enjoyed it, the film had a lot of surprising twists and turns, that you didn’t see coming.

The cast: Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant did an excellent performance and I do give Hugh Grant credit…cause his character was funny and stole the whole movie.

The story was good, focusing on the main character and other characters’ point of view. Also the film reminded me of the first two Sherlock Holmes that Guy Ritchie directed and Quentin Tarantino films.

Guy Ritchie did a great job directing and writing the film.

For the record: the film is R-rated.

I give this movie an A+

TMNT : Turtles Forever (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie TMNT: Turtles Forever. This movie was first released on October 29, 2009. This animated TMNT movie takes place in the 2003 animated series as well as both the 1987 cartoon series and the 1984 Mirage comics series (Turtle Prime).

The protagonists in this movie are the TMNT (2003), TMNT (1987), TMNT (1984), Splinter (2003), Splinter (1987), April O’Neil (2003), April O’Neil (2003) and Casey Jones (2003).

The antagonists in this movie are Shredder (2003), Shredder (1987), Shredder (1984), Krang (1987), Karai (2003), Bebop & Rocksteady (1987) and Hun (Human/Turtle)(2003).

In conclusion, I found this TMNT movie to be the ultimate, anniversary celebration to Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird’s entire TMNT franchise. Truly a “Turtle Powered/Ninja Timed/Green Machined/Cowabunga” accomplishment on their part.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Movie Review {Spoiler Review}

Image result for star wars rise of skywalker poster

This review will be a few spoilers, if you haven’t seen the film…don’t read…if you saw the movie…you’re welcome to read the review. I know there’s a lot of mixed opinions about the movie, I respect everyone’s opinions.

 

My thoughts and reaction: I enjoyed Star Wars: Episode IX -The Rise of Skywalker, the final episode of the Skywalker saga. I was expecting a bit of detail of the Emperor’s return…they didn’t explain much…but I find it interesting is the Emperor stays attached to a large machine.

 

One twist that I did not expect is that Rey is Emperor Palpatine’s granddaughter…a lot of surprises.

 

The visual effects looked cool, great music by John Williams and more. Leia Organa played by Carrie Fisher who passed away on December 27, 2016…the film used unused footage of Fisher  from The Force Awakens.

 

Billy Dee Williams coming back as Lando Calrissian was great, it was cool to see Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo

 

I enjoyed the Sequel trilogy…in my opinion my favorite Star Wars trilogies is the original and prequel

 

The cast and crew did a great job in the film

 

I give this movie a B

Dark Waters Movie Review

Image result for dark waters movie poster

Here my thoughts: the movie was good, very interesting true story that involves a corporate defense lawyer taking on an environmental lawsuit against a chemical company that exposes a lengthy history of pollution.

The film is based on the 2016 article “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont‘s Worst Nightmare” by Nathaniel Rich, published in The New York Times Magazine.[3][4] Parts of the story were also reported by Mariah Blake, whose 2015 article, “Welcome to Beautiful Parkersburg, West Virginia” was a National Magazine Award finalist,[5] and Sharon Lerner, whose series “Bad Chemistry” ran in the Intercept. 

Also the movie is very strong, intense and emotional, Robert Bilott fought justice…understanding what is happening with the waters and others.

And the cast: Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway, Tim Robbins, Bill Camp, Victor Garber and Bill Pullman did an amazing performance, they captured the emotion of the real people…terrifically

When you watch the movie…you learn the story, understand the human emotion and something that everyone asks the question is why, when and knowing.

I give this movie a B+

Knives Out: Movie Review

Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Ana de Armas, LaKeith Stanfield, Jaeden Martell, and Katherine Langford in Knives Out (2019)

My thoughts/reaction to Knives Out is that I enjoyed the movie, it was interesting how the film used some classic mystery thrillers/comedies like Clue, Murder on the Orient Express and more, also the TV show: Murder, She Wrote 

 

The cast did a great job in the film, In my opinion is that Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Katherine Langford, Lakeith Stanfield and Christopher Plummer…their performances were excellent

 

One of my favorite quotes in the film is Daniel Craig’s character private detective, Benoit Blanc saying: “This is a twisted web, and we are not finished untangling it, not yet.” 

 

I give this film an A+. it will be one of my favorite murder mystery films along with Clue and Murder on the Orient Express 

 

I know it’s too early to talk about a sequel. But an interview with Collider, writer/director Rian Johnson mentioned he would love to turn Knives Out into a series revolving around Daniel Craig’s Detective Blanc solving different mysteries.

In my opinion, I would love to see it.

Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite (Movie Review)

Hello, My name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite. This movie was first released on December 10, 1988.

In this movie, The Care Bears (TenderHeart Bear, FunShine Bear and Grumpy Bear), The Care Bear Cousins (BraveHeart Lion and LotsaHeart Elephant), The Care Bear Cubs (Hugs and Tugs) and their new human friends (Anna and her little brother Peter) try to help an amnesiac Nutcracker “who is in fact The Prince of Toyland” as he attempts to rescue The Sugar Plum Fairy, recover the Prince’s magic ring “whosoever wears this ring has complete control over Toyland” and  liberate Toyland from the tyrannical wizard, The Evil Vizier and his army of rats, led by the Rat King.

In conclusion, I found this movie to be a true dedication to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker as well as being one of two Care Bear movies to be based off of a different franchise “the other franchise is Alice in Wonderland.”
