Happy New Year Lost Anarchy. It’s UltimateBandGirl. I’m reviewing some of this seasons big blockbuster movies because let’s face it this is when locally the music scene sucks. It’s usually a bunch of bands you’ve seen a million times and how many times can you pay to see someone you never really gave a fuck about in the first place. With the Oscar nominations in January all the studios roll out their gems in the holiday season.
Carrie- Kimberly Pierce directs this modern day retelling of Stephen King’s classic novel. Chloe Moritz Grace plays the shy outcast teen whose mother played by Julianne Moore is deeply religious and shelters Carrie. Carrie uses her telekinesis powers to get revenge on her tormentors. I have mixed emotions about remakes of movies I grew up watching. But I really enjoyed this movie and highly recommend it. Carrie stayed true to Stephen King’s novel while still updating the story to include cell phones, social networking and cyber bullying. The special effects were very good and looked so realistic. I remember laughing at the end of the original Carrie movie because of how cheesy the effects looked, not in this one. Chloe Moritz Grace is the actress to watch.
Gravity- Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with George Clooney who plays veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky. In what’s a seemingly routine space walk disaster strikes and leaves the two tethered to each other in the deafening silence of space wondering about their next breath of air, and fighting for their lives. I saw this movie in 3D. The special effects were absolutely brilliant. The visuals were fantastic. I found some of the elements of this movie very unbelievable and highly far fetched. Since most of the movie is only Sandra Bullock and there is no soundtrack the movie got really slow and dragged on a bit for me. If your gonna see this movie it’s probably just for the effects.
The Hunger Games Catching Fire- In this sequel starring Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson. Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mallarck become targets of the capitol after their victory tour in the 74th annual Hunger games sparks a rebellion in the districts of Panem. I really liked how the characters developed in this movie and how the relationships with the main characters progresses. Is there a love triangle brewing? The movie ends on a very climatic note leaving me wondering how the final two films in the franchise will progress. I really love this franchise.
The Hobbit The Desolation Of Smaug- Peter Jackson directs this second movie in The Hobbit trilogy. In The Desolation Of Smaug Bilbo Baggins is in possession of a magical ring, with the dwarves and Gandalf the Grey continue on their journey to reclaim their homeland from the dragon Smaug. I really wasn’t so sure how interesting a hundred page book turned into 3 three hour long movies would be, but Smaug was excellent. I seen the movie in high frames per minute IMAX and the picture was clear absolutely fantastic. It looked so real I felt like I was right there in the movie. Smaug had to be the coolest dragon ever in a movie. he looked incredible and was an absolute smart ass who had me rolling. I recommend this movie for the stunning visuals and the story line.
Out Of The Furnace- is a movie with an incredible A-list cast with superb story telling that has seemed to have gotten lost in all of this season’s blockbuster movies. Starring Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, and Woody Harrelson among other great actors. Rodney Baze, Afflek’s character disappears mysteriously and the law isn’t moving very fast on the case so his older brother Russell, played by Bale takes matters into his own hands. The story plays out for you over five years with subtle visual clues letting you in on the passage of time. Unlike other revenge movies where most of the plot is getting back Director Scott Cooper builds up the character Rodney and really develops the relationship with his brother Russell that leaves you feeling for these people. I think this was the best movie I have seen all year long and think it deserves not only a Best Picture nomination in The Oscars also if not a few actor and supporting actor nominations. Very beautifully done movie.
