Movie Review: Cars 3 2017

Spoilers Warning  I will leave that I give the movie 3 stars in cause you don’t want to be spoiled. I don’t spoil the whole movie just points of the movie that I think is important.

 

Hello Everyone,

I was so lucky to get tickets to special screen for across Canada event last Wednesday.  It is the reason this review is so late. Cars 3 came out friday but I was not allowed to talk about it till today.  So lets Ka- Chow on this review.

About The Movie:

Lightning McQueen is having some fantastic years of racing with his friend. All is going well until Jackson Storm appears as the new rookie. Lightning finds out you can’t be the best racer forever.

Movie: 1 Hr 48 Mins.

 

My thoughts:

I felt this movie had nothing to do with Lightning McQueen training to become the faster and better then Jackson Storm.  It was more about growing up and realizing that you can’t always be the best.  That you can help someone to become the best after you.

I really love the nod and the fact the movie was a lot base on Doc Hudson. It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

This is the prefect ending to the Cars series.

I give this movie 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Movie Review: King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword

Hello Everyone,

My sister and I went to see King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword which is the first movie in a 6 movie series.

About the movie:

Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy – whether he likes it or not.

 

My thoughts:

I don’t know why this movie got back reviews but I loved it. I thought it was a refreshing retelling of King Arthur.

Yes it was dark in a lot of parts and yes it didn’t stick to the story of King Arthur from the book. But really what movie really sticks to the book.

The movie was really about the sword and not king Arthur. Arthur only plays a small part in the movie while the legend of the sword played a big part.

If you going into knowing this. I am sure you’ll love the movie as much as I did.

 

I gave this movie 4 out of 5 stars.

What is the movie about?

There are big changes brewing in Gotham, but if Batman (Will Arnett) wants to save the city from the Joker’s (Zach Galifianakis) hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Maybe his superhero sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) and loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) can show him a thing or two.

Run For: 1Hr and 46 Mins

Rated: G

Fave parts of the movie:

Husband:  I really love the nod to Nightwing that Dick becomes in the future. Also the nod for Super Cafe.

My Youngest Daughter: Batman, Batman and cause he is Batman.

Me: I really love the scene where Barbara Gordon is introduce and Bruce does not know what to think or feel for that matter.

 

Overall Thoughts:

Husband: It was okay. The story could have been better. A solid 3 stars out of 5 stars for me.

My Youngest Daughter: Whoa a dance.  A solid Batman Batman rating.

Me: I agree with my husband. The story could have been better written. I thought the jokes where amazing cute and simple. A solid 3 stars out of 5 stars.

 

Will we be buying this movie for our collection?

Yes and we are looking forward to future lego movies.

Movie Review: Kong: Skull Island

(Warning Warning before you go any further. This will be a slight spoiler review.)

Hello Everyone,

My husband and I went to see this movie together.  So this review is both our opinions on the movie except how hot Tom Hiddleston looked in this movie and how flawless his movie makeup was  is my own opinion. So lets get started.

About the movie:

Researchers go to a senater cause they found a mysterious island and want to get there to check it out before the Russia get there. They set to hire the best team members to scout out the island with the help of  USA Soldiers that are about to take their leave the army.  Getting to the island proves that we are truly not the top of the food change.

 

Best things about the movie:

  • Kong was animated beautifully.
  • They had a great movie case lineup.
  • Samuel L Jackson was the best Samuel L Jackson. I could truly feel his hate for Kong in this movie.
  • Great slow motion fight. I so want it for my computer when it turns on.
  • Tom Hiddleston was hot and his makeup was flawless.
  • The script was well written.

 

What I didn’t like about this movie:

  • Giant Spider. Omg Giant Spider. Like a skyscraper spider. Nightmares for days kind of spider.
  • Bad evil that kong fought look like something out of the bleach anime.
  • The CG scene where the guy gets grabbed by a Dino looking birds and get his arm ripped off left me laughing.  It really look to me like shadow puppets on the way and didn’t make me feel sorry for the guy at all.

 

Overall I give this movie 3 stars out of 5 stars.

p466168_b_v8_ar

 

 

About the series:

 

From England to Egypt, accompanied by his elegant and trustworthy sidekicks, the intelligent yet eccentrically-refined Belgian detective Hercule Poirot pits his wits against a collection of first class deceptions.

Season Two runs for 9 episodes.

 

My Thoughts:

My least fave. episode: The Adventure Of The Western Star. I found this episode at some time confusing.  It jump back and forth and got me lost.  Even though the episode end I was not too sure what happen.

 

My fave. episode is Double Sin. I love the fact that is focus on Captain Hastings instead of Hercule Poirot to solve the case and what a case it was.

 

I give season two 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Samantha Watches Galavant Season One

Hello Everyone and New followers,

 

My name is Samantha. I love king Arthur retelling in books and movies. I post Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

 

p12343551_b_v8_aa

 

About the series:

The adventures of Galavant, a dashing hero who is determined to reclaim his reputation and his “Happily Ever After” by going after the evil King Richard, who ruined it the moment he stole the love of Galavant’s life, Madalena.

Season one is eight episodes.

 

My Thoughts:

My least fave. episode:  Two Balls. I found this episode to be the most disappointing. I thought it would be great from the beginning to be let down. The songs were great but the store it self was a let down.

 

My fave. episode: Dungeons and Dragon Lady. Really this won me over with having guest Ricky Gervais. This episode had lots of rooms for laughs. I also love the tension between Galavant and Isabella.

My fave. song of the season: Wow this will be a hard one.  I will have to give it to the song Togetherness.

I give this season 4 stars out of 5 stars.

About The Series:

From England to Egypt, accompanied by his elegant and trustworthy sidekicks, the intelligent yet eccentrically-refined Belgian detective Hercule Poirot pits his wits against a collection of first class deceptions.

My thoughts:

 

My Least Fave. Episode:  Problems at sea: I found this episode boring and not at all ground breaking. This episode all most made me stop watching the series.

 

My Fave. Episode: The Dream.  It has so much mystery to the story like same dream over and over again. Lots of meat pies. I was quite impress with how much of the writer work went into the script to explain how and why he died.

 

I give this series 2.5 stars out of 5 stars.

Samantha Watches Jem And The Holograms Season One

Hello Everyone,

I am slowly getting back to the swing of watching movies and tv show. I have decide to change the formula from my norm for tv shows.  I will be adding a fave. episode and a least fave. episode. So there will be some spoilers for fave. and least fave. episodes. So lets get started.

About the series:

It is about Jerrica who has to fight for her father company by starting a band. She finds out that her father made Synergy, a high-tech computer that has the ability to generate holograms. So forming the band Jem and The Holograms set to take on Eric Raymond and the band The Misfits. To win Starlight records.

The series runs for 26 episodes.

My thoughts:

My fave. song of first season:  Click/Clash perfomed by Jem and the holograms and the misfits from episode 2.

My fave. episode is The Music Awards episode 2: My fave. part of the episode is when Pizzazz of the misfits at the end of the episode drops the music award. I think that is when she realizes that music awards are not everything.

My least fave. episode is Glitter And Gold: To me Jerrica/Jem acted like a child at the beginning of the episode.  When she found out that the Misfits might win the award for most sold records. Jem and the holograms decide to make a new record in two days.  So they enter the contest.  Who ever sell 500000 thousand records wins the award. So they get close and Rio decide to buy a record and the Jem and the holograms get to the 500000 thousand records but are discount cause Rio works for them. So sad Jem. So sad. Then the misfits sells 500000 thousand records first and jem and the holograms won’t have it cause the person bought both a misfits record and a jem and the hologram record. Alas Jem and the holograms runs out of records to sale. One of the starlight kids snatches Rio’s record and puts it back on the shelf and someone buys it and the holograms won the award.

To be honest the misfits should have won the award and not Jem and the holograms. The misfits were working hard on their record to do the award contest. Sure they gave people money to buy their records but music companies do the same thing today.

I give this season 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Samantha Watches Finding Dory 2016

Hello Everyone,

I went to go see finding dory with my sister and youngest daughter on cheap night which is a Tuesday. So lets see what I thought about the movie.

About the movie:

The friendly but forgetful blue tang fish begins a search for her long-lost parents, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.

 

 

The movie is 1h and 37 mins long.

 

 

 

My thoughts:

 

 

I found the movie a good conclusion to the Finding series but knowing Disney I can see a Finding Marlin in the future.   Of course the short Piper was a good story that make the beginning of Finding Dory in my option more powerful.

I found the last part of the movie boring and if was not for the cute sea otters. I would have not been happy with the ending.

My fave. character  in the movie was  Becky the loon.  She make the movie funny and was a great lesson.

I give this movie 3.5 sea otter cuddles out of 5 sea otter cuddles.

Samantha Watches Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates 2016

About the movie:

Hard-partying brothers Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron) place an online ad to find the perfect dates (Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza) for their sister’s Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves outsmarted and out-partied by the uncontrollable duo.

 

 

 

My thought:

 

What a really bad movie. I had problem with the movie trying to be like wedding crashers.  They sure talk a lot about wedding crashers. There is a lot of humor more sexual humor and lots of talking about the d. The movie plot line was okay but you can see a mile away what was going to happen.

My fave. character in  the movie was Tatiana played by Aubrey Plaza.

I also enjoyed the nod to Jurassic Park the movie.

I give this movie 1 star out of 5 stars.
