omg I'm so kidding!
Sorry about the heart attack MV.
Let's see here...
The story centers around a man that can teleport around basically, using worm holes that he himself creates and the conflict with a group of people that have existed for ages that hunt people like him. The people that can teleport are called "jumpers" and those that hunt them are named "paladins." The story starts when the boy is young and he discovers he can teleport, I won't say how, so I don't ruin the movie for you... Then he ends up running away from home and robbing a lot of banks with his new found power and living the good life filthy rich. Well, eventually the paladins get a lead on him because he teleports a small distance in a bar and bumps into a girl, and some guy there saw him and called them. So then the main part of the story starts... When he was little he had a crush on some girl, and when they were little she always had all these places written inside her locker that she wanted to go as her goals. Well, when the boy's all grown up he decides to go back to this small town and finds her, then asks her to go to the place he remembered was her favorite. So they go, run into some paladins and then he ends up meeting another jumper, except this one in turn is the one doing the hunting. This jumper hunts the paladins. So then the sort of hook up a bit, and end up talking a bit. And blah blah, don't really need to say much more. There's a lot of cool visual effects for teleporting around, but the story itself isn't really the strong point of it. You can't really get a good feeling that the couple (boy and girl) really like each other, even though they are scripted to. Overall, I probably wouldn't really watch it again... But it wasn't that
Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman act amazingly in this movie. Jack Nicholson plays a super rich owner of many hospital chains and Morgan Freeman plays a really smart mechanic who's dream was to become a history teacher. They end up meeting up when both men are hospitalized in one of Jack's hospitals in the same room. At first they don't really get along, and Jack's character is a bit upset that he is sharing a room with someone but he is reminded that it would be horrible for public relations if he wanted his own room after advocating that everyone has 2 to a room no matter what. Well, they end up becoming friends, and one day Morgan's character is writing a list of things to do before he dies, and refuses to tell Jack's character what it is. When the doctor tells him that he has a very short time to live, he gets angry and crumbles up the list and throws it in the floor. The next day or so, Jack's character gets up and picks up the list off the floor and starts reading it, and Morgan wakes up and asks what he's doing and realizes it's his list, so he asks to have it back, Jack's kind of making fun of his list a bit, and then he tells him what it is. Then Jack takes it back and starts adding all sorts of stuff because he didn't think Morgan's list was exciting enough. Well one thing leads to another and they end up going and checking off things on their list. I won't ruin the movie for you, but it's really funny. It's also very sad towards the end, I cried. But, I'm a girl and can cry at the drop of a dime... So you might not have a problem with it! Good movie, I'd watch it again.
George Clooney plays an attorney for a big law firm, in which his term is a fixer. They refer to it as a janitor - he cleans up "messes." His firm is representing a company that might be killing a lot of people with their fertilizer products, one of his colleagues which is the head lawyer on the case ends up going crazy and he's sent to clean things up. The guy ended up stripping naked and running through the street, he has issues and didn't take his meds - seriously though, that's what happened. Well anyways, Clooney gets caught up in the plot somehow - once again, not ruining the movie for you. But it's a good movie with lots of twists, but not so many that it's confusing or anything. It's very easy to follow, and a good, well acted movie. I give it an 8 simply because after seeing it once, the suspense of what was going to happen isn't really there, so I haven't felt the need to watch it again. Amazing acting though throughout the movie!
30 days of night
The story takes place in Barrow Alaska, where every year the city is blacked out from the rest of the world with 30 days of night, up at the top of the world. Well, at the beginning of the movie a stranger is seen walking into town, and the local sheriff which ends up being the star of the movie is dealing with all sorts of strange problems that aren't common for the small town. Then the real fun starts. It's a vampire movie, and as you can guess, things start to go down when they're left in the dark with no way to reach the outside world. It's a pretty good vampire movie, they aren't given the romantic, or sophisticated feeling of most vampire movies today, but more of a vicious animal aspect, though they do communicate and seem to operate in a pack, much like animals, with one definite alpha which gives the orders. He is about the only one through out the movie of the vampires that to me seems very intelligent. The others come across more as taken over by the thirst and are just completely ravenous beasts. I'll leave out the other small things in the plot to not ruin the story for you, but it's a pretty decent movie if you like horrors. Though, I can't say that I ever found myself frightened while watching it.
Let's see, going with the vampire movie theme... If you like vampire movies, then you'll certainly like these...
Queen of the Damned
The movie focuses around the vampire Lestat, based on Anne Rice's novels. Basically to sum it up... Lestat went to sleep hundreds of years ago and wakes up to find himself in a very different world. He goes and finds a ban in his old house, and makes them his
band. He then proceeds to start giving away vampire secrets through lyrics and ends up pissing off the rest of the vampires, which completely violates their 'laws.' So then it's building up to a concert he's going to have in death valley, where a lot of vampires plan to come kill him. It has a large bit of the movie where some librarians that deal with the paranormal are reading Lestat's journal, and it goes back through his life and goes up until he stopped writing. It tells of how he saw the two original vampires Akasha, and Enkil as living statues and how Akasha had called to him and allowed him to drink some of her blood. If you follow the book, Akasha is the very first vampire. In the movie she's played by Aliyah and she's amazing! love her acting in the movie. Well anyways, I can't really tell too much about the romances in the movie without giving away too much of the plot, so... If you like vampire movies, check it out. Definitely a good movie.
Blade I, II, III
Action/horror (not much horror...)
Wesley snipes plays vampire whom's mother was bitten while pregnant and died during child birth. Due to what happened, he ended up inheriting some of the vampire traits, which ended up giving him all of their strengths and the only weakness he got from them was their thirst for blood. He was found at a young age by a man named Whistler, and as the story goes... They ended up hunting vampires together. Blade feels slightly avenged every time he kills a vampire, hoping maybe it was the one that killed his mother, and Whistler's entire family was killed by a vampire that came in as a drifter one day. Well, that basically sets the guideline for all 3 movies. I won't ruin the plots, cause if you haven't seen any of these then telling you some things about them will ruin the consequential movies. So, here we go... Basically the first movie is about the vampires resurrecting a vampire god, and Blade fights it. The second is about the vampire's demons, and blade fights it. The third is about the original vampire, Dracula, which is called Drake in the movie, which of course, Blade fights. Pretty good series of movies, the second is probably the best overall, but I love the first one a lot too, cause the second one creeps me out a bit! The third isn't overly great, but it's not bad at all if you like the first two. Basically the third isn't really a Blade movie, it's more of an introduction to the Nightstalkers, since that's what it focuses around, but there's too many elements and most are left too inadequate. You can't really introduce the Nightstalkers and
try to introduce Drake at the same time, well alone with all the other stuff going on... So yeah, not that great as part of the trilogy, but if you see the other two then you may as well see this one. I put these all together, cause if you see one... You may as well see them all.
