Movie Review: Zoolander 2

This week's movie review is Zoolander 2. Overall, I found it to be pretty hysterical. I did not see the first Zoolander movie, but I was still able to catch up and stay in tune with the plot. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson always work great together, and I really enjoy watching them on the screen. Adding Will Ferrell to the mix was perfect because he is nuts and truly took the comedy to a new level. Of course, the movie was absolutely ridiculous (not surprising!). However, the most foolish films are sometimes the best kind to watch. Not only did Zoolander 2 help me to de-stress, but it also let me just laugh and enjoy myself. According to the Rotten Tomatoes Website, only 29% of the 37,591 viewers claimed they liked it. Also, the website noted that Zoolander 2 has made $27.4 million in box office sales. These numbers are not great, but what did the people expect? With a cast like this movie had, one has to know that it is going to be a bizarre show. Even so, I would recommend this film because I did find it to be amusing and relaxing. Stay tuned for next week's movie review surprise!

Movie Review: Cinderella

Even though Cinderella was released over a year ago, I would still like to review it because it is one of my all-time favorite movies! Not only is this film absolutely adorable, but it is also very enchanting. I was never bored while watching Cinderella because it was full of action and adventure. I loved how they retold the traditional story, but put more of a modern twist on it. According to the Rotten Tomatoes Website, seventy-eight percent of the 75,089 viewers liked it. Also, the website claims that Cinderella received $201.1 million in box office sales. Not only does this girly movie keep the touch of magic alive, but it also pertains to all ages. At sixteen years old, I enjoyed every minute of the film and I have watched it two more times after my first viewing. My mother was even fond of the movie! Cinderella is definitely a family-friendly film that will keep the whole clan entertained for almost two hours. This movie is a must-see because it brings back the princess whose story has not been told for awhile. Cinderella will not be a disappointment! Once again, next week will be a movie review surprise so do not miss it!

Movie Review: Deadpool

This weekend I watched the movie Deadpool. This film was not your typical superhero movie; however, I did still enjoy it to an extent. I found it to be pretty funny and entertaining in certain areas. However, Deadpool is a true R-Rated movie as it contains many inappropriate jokes and scenes. I am really not a fan of obscene movies so I believe that they could have made the film a little more appropriate. Families with children probably went to view the movie believing it was just a superhero film, but were in a for surprise...According to the Rotten Tomatoes Website, ninety-five percent of the 115, 750 users liked it. The movie also made $135 million in box office sales. Overall, I do not think I would recommend this movie. I did find some portions of the film to be enjoyable, but as a whole, it truly did not satisfy me. I am more of a fan of true superhero movies, but at least Marvel attempted to try something new...Stay tuned for next week for a movie review surprise!

Movie Review: 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

Two weeks ago, I watched the movie 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. This film was absolutely outstanding, and I could not recommend a better movie to view. I watched this movie on the edge of my seat the entire time while cringing at the terrible situations American soldiers must endure. Not only did this film open my eyes to the horrors of war, but I also developed even more respect for those fighting for our country. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi is based on a true story, and is filmed beautifully. One feels as though they are actually in the movie because the scenes seem very real. According to the Rotten Tomatoes Website, eighty-seven percent of the 22,361 viewers claimed they liked it. This movie received $47.7 million in box office sales. Even though the film is rated R due to the violence and language, I believe every American adult should view this movie. The story is undeniable, and it truly reflects the courage and heroism that soldiers of the United States bear. I really did enjoy this movie and I definitely recommend it because it will not disappoint its viewers. Come back next week for a surprise movie review!

Movie Review: Ride Along 2

I watched Ride Along 2 this past weekend, and I truly enjoyed it. As always, Kevin Hart and Ice Cube were hysterical together, and I thought that they did a great job overall. However, I have to say that I am more fond of the first movie in the series because I did think that it was funnier. It is always hard though to top off the first movie, and I honestly cannot think of a time where a second or third movie in a series is better than the original film. I would definitely still recommend this movie though because it does deliver a good laugh and the story is very amusing. According to the Rotten Tomatoes website, fifty-seven percent out of 23,973 reviewers declared that they liked Ride Along 2. I also was not surprised that the reviews were not very supportive of the movie because most people probably were disappointed with the same strained jokes and virtually the same story line. However, I am a huge fan of Kevin Hart, and I laugh at anything he does or says. Therefore, I found the movie to be very entertaining because I do enjoy his acting style. Lastly, it is a pretty family-friendly movie. There is some violent and inappropriate scenes, but should be suitable for most children eleven and up. I hope this was helpful if you are considering watching Ride Along 2. Stay tuned for next week as I will be reviewing 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
