Dimension Films let lose their Michael Myers horror flick, “Halloween II” on us this weekend. Now I’m not a big follower of these Halloween movies,meaning I saw the one back in 1998, H2O,and then I saw this one. The movie,to me was entertaining,and a little bit strange,but entertaining,none the less.

A brief synopsis of the film, starts with a huge dream sequence which seems quite real since you’re not aware of it until Laurie Strode (Scout Taylor-Compton) who is dreaming it,wakes up.

She apparently has multiple nightmares every night of Michael Myers coming back and attacking her after she supposedly shot and killed him.She is now staying at the home of Sheriff Lee Brackett (Brad Dourif) and his daughter, Annie Brackett (Danielle Harris). Read more »

The 4th installment of “The Final Destination” movie franchise chain of films hit the theaters this weekend,an just like all the previous installments to proceed it, it had a lot of strange deaths,and a group of kids trying to stop their own deaths from occurring.

As you might imagine, the movie had zero originality at this point,so it just kind of felt like I was watching one of the previous “Final Destination” movies all over again,granted it had different “death” scenes. To offset that, it did have excitement,and edge of your seat thrills, so I was definitely never bored.

In a brief synopsis, Nick O’Bannon (Bobby Campo) has a vision of a horrible car accident while he and his friends are at the race track. This accident creates a chain of other accidents that kills over 50 people at the stadium,he and his friends are at. He starts to notice that parts of his vision are coming true,so he drags them out of the stadium before it’s too late. Read more »

Warner Bros. new comedy,adventure flick, “Shorts” hit the theaters this weekend,and it was pretty entertaining. It was almost kind of too kiddie for me,but I never got board watching. It was a pretty fast paced movie,and all the magical wishing rock stuff kept me intrigued.

In a short synopsis, “Shorts” revolved mostly around Toe Thompson (Jimmy Bennett) at first,then got everyone in the mix when he’s hit on the head with a rainbow colored rock that grants anyone who holds it, whatever they wish for.

The story was kind of told in a jumbled way, in a series aptly called “Shorts”(as in short story). Basically from what I gathered, a character named Loogie (Trevor Gagnon) first found the rock,and made some bad wishes. He corrected them,and then got rid of it. Read more »

The epic Paramount distributed “G.I. Joe : The Rise Of Cobra” movie finally released this weekend . I just got done watching it,and let me just say, right off the bat, that this is one film that was actually better than the movie trailers it put out.

This freakin flick rocked,and told a good story as well. Sure it had a lot of explosions,fights,and all that good stuff. But what made this movie so unique, is that it explained the reasoning behind it all, very,very well.
