Despite the previews demonstrating only signs of mass violence and destruction, the $200 million dollar apocalyptic blockbuster "World War Z" is not only action-packed but also touches base with many current issues such as global warming, the spreading of diseases and geopolitical conflicts. Similar to other popular zombie flicks, the film focuses on society’s struggle to stay alive and the steps that are taken to ensure the survival of humankind. However, unlike other common blockbusters, there were not a force of evil or grand battles to end the film, just a general problem and a search for a solution.
The creators of "Dark Skies" were most likely in the dark when directing this movie. The storyline was predictably unoriginal, the villainous creatures were underdeveloped and the actors were not believable. Overall, what could be taken from this "horror"ible excuse of a movie is that if you're experiencing random breaks in, being possessed, and getting random nosebleeds… it's probably aliens.
Agent 007 is back in action, this time with the reputation of MI6 at stake. Directed by Sam Mendes, "Skyfall" is one of the best James Bond films to date, with high octane motor chases, witty dialogue and a very satisfying plot twist that will excite most fans.
"Wreck-it Ralph" has a refreshingly unique story line that takes video games to a whole new level.
Just when you thought the series was over, there still remain unanswered questions and more confusion.
"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" transforms you from a wallflower into one of the "misfit toys" that befriend Charlie (Logan Lerman) in this different, darker take on the classic coming-of-age story.
Although Tom Felton is in "The Apparition," you'll wish you had a portkey from "Harry Potter" so you can apparate away from this terrible movie.
Though "The Expendables 2" appears to have it all – an all-star cast and a big budget for explosions – the movie succumbs to the run-of-the-mill with dull one-liners and an out-dated plot.
Despite taking on a larger role in the "Bourne" franchise, director and writer Tony Gilroy, who also co-wrote the first three films, manages to create a very cohesive storyline that bridges the five-year gap from the original "Bourne" trilogy very well. "The Bourne Legacy" serves as not just an extension of Jason Bourne's story, but also offers a different perspective on the contents of the trilogy.
DreamWorks Studios produced the drama "People Like Us" on a relatively small scale, with a budget of only 16 million dollars, and in some ways it feels like an indie movie. Despite its convoluted storyline and star-studded cast, the movie has realistic characters with complex personalities and expressed a heartfelt message about family relationships.
