Rise of the Guardians Review (Spoilers beware)

I have watched this movie about two weeks ago I still remember the movie,  I have to say a movie about Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth fairy, The Sandman and Jack Frost looking into movie like that did I ever think it was going to be good with all the fairy tales coming together. 

Yes!  I thought so and apparently it can came out to be good when I expected to be.  I always feel that it wasn’t going to be as good due to the phasing of the movie.   but so far it came out well for both children and adults to enjoy with the fun moments that this movie brings to the audience.  Importantly I love how the films visual effects shines out so well!  it is just amazing coming from the studios that bought you Sherk  series and Antz!  It’s great to see Dreamworks brings to the table.  I like the fight scenes that between Sandman and the Boogieman going against each other showing the visual that comes in the fight scenes together.  Which brings the film such wonders.  especially the fun moments when Jack Frost was in the town playing with the kids with the trail of ice that creating an ice slide that Jack Frost did when the kid was using ice slide across town. 

The Plot
The spirit of winter, Jack Frost (Chris Pine), is lifted with no previous memory from the depths of a frozen pond by the Man in the Moon, only to discover that no one can see, hear, or touch him. Three-hundred years later, at the North Pole, Nicholas St. North, better known as Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), becomes aware that Pitch Black, the Boogeyman (Jude Law), has returned and is threatening the children of the world. After alerting fellow Guardians the Tooth Fairy/Toothiana (Tooth for short) (Isla Fisher), the Easter Bunny/E. Aster Bunnymund (Hugh Jackman), and the Sandman (Sandy for short) to the problem, North learns that Jack has been selected by the Man in the Moon as the new recruit. Jack, frustrated and hurt by centuries of isolation, declines the invitation, but North persuades him to cooperate by explaining their mission and the looming threat.
It has a good plot line and love the story behind it, it was good mash up the fairy tale story coming together I really liked,  but the only thing is that its something that I wouldn’t watch all the time since this doesn’t come close to a classic or best as of any animation that this Disney has,  If anything else I love Wrech it Ralph!  That movie had references from the old school arcade games that I played when I was a kid that right there enjoy so much, but this Rise of the Guardians is good but doesn’t come close to Wrech it Ralph.  I give it 7/10.  for the story and the visual effects that comes amazing this current generation 3D animations.  

The Raid Redemption (Movie Review)

When this movie came up to me. it came to me as a big surprise since I only heard about this title for a short amount of time from a friend of mine so I went ahead and decided to see it with him.  By the time I came to the inside the theater, I was missing only 10 to 15 mins of the movie when I entered the theater.  One of the things I notice when there was a SWAT group entering an apartment building capturing the drug dealers a horrible looking place in an Indonesian Slum , In that scene it was all from the beginning but of course soon enough they get there self screwed right early on the film, Since The Raid Redemption doesn’t have much of compelling story you know your only going there for the action and the kicks.  From what I think it’s really fun to see.  The first time my friend showed me the trailer I thought it was a film set to be in Hong Kong, But it’s actually its filmed in Indonesia   Some how I hate to bring something like this but whenever I see action flicks notices that one thing that kept me thinking is that it’s just as similar to be almost just the same in every movie.  But this one no exception but this film doesn’t appear to be like any Hong Kong film.  This here does have a story and the thing about most of the time the SWAT team is trap in the apartment complex,  Already they’re ass are surrounded by these bad guys.  What they do end up is try capturing the head boss that runs the apartment.  But you know that it’ll end being nothing more of a shoot them up and pretty much shooting, left to right from almost the film. 

Even at times the action tends to chaotic and unstop!  That’s what I like about it, For the faint of heart it’s not going to be for everyone.  I know two ladies was there left 45 minutes in the film and I can tell they didn’t liked the film.  This is a Rated R flick It’s not attend to be for everyone.  But I liked it because it was exciting and packed of action of course it was full of action most of the film. *laughing*  This right here is going to be 2012’s best action flick I ever seen and most be talk about it.  Since no one has heard it…or be few other have its said that a American Remade coming sometime this year.  I know my thoughts about it is they shouldn’t go Americanize this film, this is perfect the way it is.  So far this is a classic!   I wish I could see more Asian action films like this But for some reason this film was never hyped or heard of till ltwo weeks ago for me.
