New 300,Rise Of An Empire movie delivered great action,drama,gore & more. Paramount Pictures released their new action/drama flick, “300: Rise Of An Empire” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty entertaining, mostly because of the hardcore,highly graphic violence and action that it served up.

In the new flick, Darius’ son, Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), witnesses his father’s death, and is advised, not to continue the war, since “only the gods could defeat the Greeks. Darius’ naval commander, Artemisia (Eva Green), claims that Darius’ last words where in fact a challenge and sends Xerxes on a journey through the desert.

New Son Of God movie delivered a mediocre version of Jesus’ story & more. 20th Century Fox released their new drama flick, “Son Of God,” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty mediocre at best. I actually thought the 2000 TV version ,named “Jesus,” delivered a much better version of the Jesus story. This one stars: Diogo Morgado, Greg Hicks, Adrian Schiller, Darwin Shaw, Sebastian Knapp, Joe Wredden, Simon Kunz, Paul Marc Davis, Matthew Gravelle, Amber Rose Revah, and Roma Downey.

Basically, this movie was just another rehashed telling of the story of Jesus the Christ, and it really came off that way. It showed his humble birth and all of his most popular miracles he performed like healing the crippled man, finding all the fish in the water, raising Lazarus from the dead ,and more. We also saw the drama he incurred with Pharisees, Pontius Pilate, which ultimately lead to his very violent and cruel crucifixion on the cross. They did get very graphic with that part ,so they didn’t lag on that. Read more »

I just checked it out, and I have to agree with the top critics on this one ,and give it a pretty poor rating, because the storyline just didn’t interest me at all. It was just so weird.

The only good note about this film, is that it did offer a lot of action, but the action just seemed pointless,since the plotline fell seriously flat. It stars: Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, Yvonne Strahovski, Miranda Otto, Jai Courtney, Socratis Otto, Mahesh Jadu, Caitlin Stasey, and Aden Young.
