REAL STEEL, A BOY AND HIS BOT

It’s not Rocky, it’s Real Steel, but you would think you were watching the great boxing film in another dimension. The gritty, action packed fight film blows the lid off some extreme robots on it’s way to being an entertaining film for those who like a good punch fest. I liked this film for the action, comedy and father-son relationship.

IDES OF MARCH, POLITICAL CHILLS

Watching Ides of March gave me déjà vu thinking of some of the past political campaigns that tanked due to indiscretions. Released during a period of the current US presidential primary, the timing helps the effort. I am not very fond of political films that have an agenda, but this one appeared fair to each side of the aisle. If you like a good drama that has suspense and a reasonable ending than this film should win your praise.

MACHINE GUN PREACHER, TRUE MERCY

Director Marc Forster who gave us Quantum of Solace and Monster’s Ball brings Machine Gun Preacher to the screen and drives home a winner.

If you like your action like I do, than Universal’s Fast Five should be in your library.

THE LION KING 3D BLU-RAY, MAJESTIC

For me The Lion King 3D Blu-ray is a no-brainer, but if you are not ever planning on purchasing a 3D system it may not be for you. However, with the Blu-ray and DVD enclosed in the 3D combo pack, if you are going to purchase the Blu-ray anyway the Combo Pack may be a better deal for any future changes in your entertainment system.

WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER?, Cheesy & Familiar

It’s a chick flick, so there you go, I said it right up front. AND, What’s Your Number? is very predictable, so there you go again. AND it’s 27 Dresses with a bit more sex and without Katherine Heigl. Actually, I almost liked the film up until two scenes that show signs of the moral decay of American cinema.
