Another variety blockbuster week. I looked at new releases in Australia of Coriolanus and 21 Jump Street. I also managed to watch the romantic and emotional movie Like Crazy which is in Australian theaters still.
After watching Alien last week I watched Aliens this week too which was also great. Finally, I rewatched one of my 10 A+ movies in Superbad, a classic! Read on and give me your thoughts at the end too!
Coriolanus (2011) – I came into this movie only knowing it had Gerard Butler, Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort) and a 94% Rottentomatoes score. This was a Shakespeare adaption for the modern time, and while it had an awesome first 25-30 minutes it ultimately slowed to a grinding halt. The acting was great, the storyline was decent but the ultimate ending was unsatisfactory for mine. C
21 Jump Street (2012) – <<< Click here for my review. This was a great comedy and well worth watching. B+
Like Crazy (2011) - Raw and emotional, this was a very romantic and emotional movie starring a lovely looking Felicity Jones about long distance relationships. I’m not sure if it’s more of a female orientated film but I loved it and felt the happenings were so believable. The ultimate end was devastating and unexpected for mine but also real. B+
Aliens (1986) - Put simply this was just as good as the original and I have a hard time splitting them. Sigourney Weaver was great, the directing was superb and I was glued to the screen even though it was quite a long movie. A-
Superbad (2007) - This movie is a classic and easily my funniest movie of all time. Hill, Cera and Plasse have great chemistry and are hilarious. This movie not only makes me laugh every time, but has a great storyline that flows well. A+
I love watching movies lately when I keep getting such quality ones like these! This week I will be seeing The Raid on Monday night and Hunger Games on Wednesday as well as whatever else I can fit in.
