The Day After Tomorrow (2004)

The Day After Tomorrow (2004)

This movie is one of those classic end of the world movies. It has a good plot about a father rescuing his son. It is a really inspiring film with a well picked cast and stunning effects.

First of all, this is a very intense movie. There are tsunami scenes, huge storm scenes, tornado scenes, etc. And the effects they made for these scenes were fabulous.  They worked so hard and it definitely payed off. 

The beginning was a little slow, but yes, it was definitely gripping, and exiting. A few jumpy parts, and a few thrilling deaths, just great. I was just great. 


It is a great movie. Thats is basically it. It is definitely not the best movie ever, but it is worth watching. I would suggest seeing it.

127 Hours (2010)

Holy crap that was great. It is definitely Shua's "Must See” movie of the year so far. It came out in 2010 you say? I don't care. Go see it.

I didn't not like anything in this movie. James Franco played Aron Ralston perfectly. He was a phenomenal actor and the real Aron Ralston actually said in an interview,” James' portrayal [of me] is nearly perfect. The little intro thing was great; the credits were plain, perfect ending for what the viewer just went through. It was just an overall fantastic film.

These kind of movies, the different, rare, crazy, extremely well made movies, just make me want to punch a baby (in the good way). The way they filmed this movie was just incredibly perfect. They used split screen for a lot of scenes, which we haven't seen for some time. They brought back the old school! The funny thing is I probably wasn't alive for the "old school" days. If you haven't seen it, this doesn't really give anything away. He has a camera when he is hiking, and he films his whole experience. It was a very individual movie in the creative ways they edited it. I just keep remembering parts from it and saying in my head, "wow.' 

It is very gruesome and very bloody, mostly at the end, but those parts just make you shiver, and it makes you feel weird that someone actually had to go through that entire experience in real life. They do have comic relief, don't worry, it's not a sad film. I actually did laugh out loud a few times. Very few, but, still a few. Oh man, wow. This movie definitely blew my mind.


It was great. Don't show your kids, there is a reason it is R rated. amazing film. Easily in my favorite top 5 movies ever. Just go experience it yourself.

Toy Story (1995)

I understand that this is from 1995, but, Spoiler Alert.

This was the first ever Pixar feature film, and the first time I watched it, I was like 4. Recently Re-watching them, I see that they actually have meanings behind the funny and clever idea of toys being alive. Despite being a very impressively animated film, it makes you really feel that those characters actually have feelings. When I used to watch it, I always thought it would happen to my toys and stuffed animals and one day they would tell me that they were alive and such, but, you know. It never really did. Sadly.

It goes into such detail of the characters that you can't help loving every single one. The detail Pixar put into their character's characteristics is a true phenomenon. Can't love it enough. Even the voices for the characters fit each character very well.

The places all the events occur are greatly diverse, witch makes the movie much more entertaining, and much more gripping. If a movie is set in one place, the setting of it won't be interesting after long, but as most movies do pretty well, setting needs to be switched up every once in a while to add a little spark of pizazz.

Certain scenes of this movie just really move you. When Buzz finds out he actually was a toy, not a space ranger, it makes you want to feel really sad for him. Also, when the're "falling with style" at the end, it makes you want to do a fist pump or something. It can really hit the emotional buttons you got in your heart.

I am a person who likes to find the best in things, so you might find my movie reviews very generous (seeing that this is my first one), but oh my gosh. This one doesn't need it at all. I'll do all my reviews out of 100, like Rotten Tomatoes. Easily a 100/100. Seeing that it was the ground breaking 3d animated film, and it just killed almost everybody because of its true awesomeness, it deserves the best possible rating. Please. If you haven't seen it, you need to get yourself to a block buster or something. Gosh.

Usually my ratings wont be this stellar, I just started with one of my favorites ever. Expect the first few to be pretty high. Just to get going, you know.
