- Waist Deep – Starring Tyrese Gibson, Meagan Good, Larenz Tate,The Gamel. Plot Outline -An ex-convict (Tyrese) gets tangled up with a gang after his car is hijacked with his son inside. Basically another Black Gansta movie, the storyline was pretty predictable as it seemed borrowed from quite a few titles. However I must say, I am very impressed with Tyrese Gibson’s performance. Would like to see more of him in the movies!
- Stranger Than Fiction – Starring Will Ferrell, Emma Thomson, Maggie Gyllenhaal,Queen Latifah. Plot Outline -An IRS auditor suddenly finds himself the subject of narration only he can hear: narration that begins to affect his entire life, from his work, to his love-interest, to his death. Well surprise…..surprise, what a great original storyline which in essence captures the heart of my blog and that is to live a full life with a passion. Great performance by Ferrell and Thompson!
- Transformers (2007) – Starring Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel,Tyrese Gibson,John Voight, Rachael Taylor,Anthony Anderson,John Turturro. Plot Outline -A war re-erupts on Earth between two robotic clans, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, leaving the fate of mankind hanging in the balance. Shia LaBeouf was the real star of the movie where else Megan Fox was unfortunately just eye candy. This movie has quite a few plot holes for instance, the humans had moved the Allspark to a new location however the Autobots still managed to find it using a map made years before! Well overall the special effects and the stylish designs of the Autobots and Decepticons still makes it a good entertaining movie. I enjoyed watching it more on DVD then at the movies as I was seated just a few rows in front of the movie screen. This made the movie confusing especially during the fast paced fight scenes. You couldn’t really tell the machines apart, but with the comfort of your own home and at a comfortable distance….What a difference!
