Movies - Part II

I’m back for the 2nd round of movies review; it’s a mix of recent and past movies that I’ve watched. The movies are worth to review as they are awesome - Ok time to lay down the reviews, hope you all like it and if you have the chance go and watch it.

Gnomeo & Juliet: It is an interesting story with the greatest love story ever told, Shakespeare's revered tale gets a comical, off-the-wall makeover. , the film features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Gnomeo and Juliet, who have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbours. But with plastic pink flamingos and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find lasting happiness? I enjoyed the both classic and original songs by Elton John. For a movie about inanimate objects, Gnomeo & Juliet is quite animated!

The Smurfs: One of many 80’s cartoons that bring to live with the touch of 3D animations. Be it Stuart Little or the modern Alvin and The Chipmunks, The Smurfs is something to look forward if you always wanted to see Gargamel get Tasered or watch rapping Smurfs improvising a version of “Walk This Way” with lyrics about Smurfette’s hotness—need look no further than this update. The Smurfs features toilet gags and self-aware meta-humor mildly mocking the Smurfs’ cheery theme song, naming conventions, and overuse of the word “smurf.” It’s a thoroughly modern comedy crammed with product placement, pop-culture references, easy callbacks, and celebrity cameos, but it’s mostly aimed at viewers who can’t get enough of characters smacking face-first into glass surfaces. I SMURF it so much!

Cars 2: Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship to exciting new places when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world's fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater's action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors. KA_CIAO!

Final Destination 5: Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man's premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death's sinister agenda – you won’t get away even how hard you try to escape, death is the only solution. If you are in Malaysia and would like to catch this movie in the theatre then you forget about it, just grab a DVD when is available and you will have the full thrill of this movie. Enjoy screaming!

Rango: Voice over by Johnny Depp – one of my fav actors! Rango is a sheltered chameleon living as an ordinary family pet facing a major identity crisis. After all, how high can you aim when your whole purpose in life is to blend in? When Rango accidentally winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt - a lawless outpost populated by the desert's most wily and whimsical creatures - the less-than-courageous lizard suddenly finds he stands out. Welcomed as the last hope the town has been waiting for, new Sheriff Rango is forced to play his new role to the hilt... until he starts to become the hero he once only pretended to be. You go RANGO!

Horrible Bosses: One of the funniest comedies of degeneracy and a career change for Aniston and Farrell if they’ll only keep following their perverted muses. Horrible Bosses spins hostile work environments into a movie surpassing "9 to 5" and "Office Space" as the touchstone flick for disenchanted drones. For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently. There's only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them. Very solid film! A MUST WATCH for every working people especially bosses!
