Interstellar (2014)

“Mankind was born on earth. It was never meant to die here.” — Interstellar When I first saw the trailer to this film, I knew I had to see it. Though, I really limited my knowledge about it — I went in cold not reading any reviews or information. I’m glad I did. Before I go into the review, I’ll admit I have not always been a sci-fi buff (even as a child). However, as the years have gone by and more films have come out in the genre my interest has peaked and sparked my curiosity. Read more [...]

RoboCop (2014)

“Crime has a new enemy.” — RoboCop When I first saw the trailer to this film, I knew I wanted to see it. Coupled with my interest for sci-fi and action, sometimes I just want to see a movie and not have to think too deeply about it. This was one of those flicks. And, let me tell you — it did not disappoint. Now, this is a remake on a prior film with the same name. For those who are fans of the franchise, it held true to the original story with a few minor adjustments here and there. Read more [...]

The Matrix (1999)

(Note: This film is part of my ”1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die” project of film reviews). “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work… when you go to church… when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth. That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into Read more [...]

Prometheus (2012)

“The search for our beginning could lead to our end.” – Prometheus When I first saw the trailer to this movie, I instantly knew it would be an interesting one to watch. Though I waited a bit to see it (due to the overwhelming crowds), it was definitely worth the trip. The film, based on the Alien franchise, is not just a movie about aliens. It’s about the origins of where we (as a human race) came from. In a sense it asks the question, “Who were our creators and why Read more [...]

John Carter (2012)

When this film first came out, there was a lot of buzz and a lot of hype. Though, I really didn’t consider seeing it on the big screen – I just wasn’t sure if it was my kind of movie. Sure, it was released by Disney but it seemed kind of weird as I had heard people describing it as a sci-fi and adventure type of picture – a cross between Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Sherlock Holmes. Really? Very strange. However, as time had passed from the release – I soon found myself searching for a Read more [...]

Super 8 (2011)

For a very long time, I had been hearing talk about this film. And, let me just say – it’s one of those movies I had been really looking forward to seeing this summer. Not only was the film directed by J.J. Abrams, but it was also produced by Steven Spielberg. Putting these two minds together for the movie, I had a feeling I was in for a treat. And, I was right. Before I go on, let me just say – this is not a film for everyone. To be fair, this is a movie by filmmakers geared towards filmmakers Read more [...]

Tron: Legacy (2010)

When I first saw the trailer to this film, it looked like an interesting movie with a neat concept. Though, it really looked like it would cater more to the fans of the first one. I was right. Going into the film, I had no background about the original movie – I’ve never seen it. Though, I knew it existed as well as the video game. So, I was pretty much going into the film blindly – not a good idea. From the very start, I was a bit lost with the storyline and the characters. Though I was not completely Read more [...]

Splice (2009)

“She’s not human…not entirely.”- Splice When I first saw the trailer to this film, it didn’t look like something that I really wanted to see. So, I held off on seeing it. Though, it did peak my curiosity…just a bit. Recently, I made the decision to go ahead and check it out. Going into the movie, I had heard some really bad reviews about it. And, I knew going in – I may not like it. But, I guess my curiosity got the better of me. Was it worth it? To be honest, I think it was executed pretty badly Read more [...]

Predators (2010)

“Fear is reborn.”- PredatorsI’ve been really looking forward to this film based on the original movie series. Since it was produced by Robert Rodriquez and his production company “Troublemaker Studios,” I knew this movie would have a lot of action – it definitely did. And, it was worth it. From the very first scene, it was action all the way. The first scene was pretty crazy. I don’t want to ruin it for you, but let’s just say it felt like a roller coaster ride. Throughout the movie, it’s almost Read more [...]

The Thirteenth Floor (1999)

“I think therefore I am.”- Descartes Since I was in a sci-fi mood, I decided to check this film out. To say the least, it was definitely an interesting film. Basically, it’s a movie about identity. Sometimes we may think we know who we are only to find out what we thought we knew was all a lie. One day, we wake up from our trance and really see our lives and the world we live in for what it really is. And, sometimes when we know the truth we don’t like what we see. Sometimes we can’t handle the truth. Read more [...]
