LEE DANIES’ THE BUTLER Review. Important True Story

Lee Daniels' THE BUTLER Review By: RAMA
Want to thank RAMA for giving us this review. Please make sure to LIKE his Facebook page and follow him on Twitter.


LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER has Oscars written all over it.. and by that I mean for production design, makeup, costume, everything that has to do with making this movie looks and feels like the eras that the lead character Cecil Gaines (Whitaker) goes through.

Whitaker himself is remarkable, sadly everybody else, or should I say every other famous faces in this movie, including Oprah Winfrey’s comeback to acting, are just along for the ride, only one or two or three of them would bear significance while the rest have little to no impact whatsoever. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great true story, just knowing that there is someone who served as a butler to eight U.S. presidents, doing that same job all those years, it’s impressive, worth admiring indeed, it’s an important story, nobody doubts that, but maybe the movie would be more influe…

Paranoia Review. The Film Doesn't Convince Us That Smartphones Are Taking Over The World.

Paranoia Review  By: MattInRC
The slick but superficial Paranoia doesn't convince us that smartphones are taking over the world.


If you listen to futurists, our society is headed in one of two directions. The first is envisioned by Star Trek, where society will exist in peace and happiness, free from the limitations of hunger while still in control of our privacy. The other view, proposed by thrillers such as Tom Cruise's Artificial Intelligence, is that powerful interests are scheming to collect data about our lives so that it can control everything we see and hear. The corporate espionage thriller Paranoia seeks to align itself with the latter, but fails to convince us that our privacy may be in danger.


After the handsome but naive protege Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) and his team are fired from tech giant Wyatt Corp after a failed presentation, Cassidy is offered a different kind of job: work for rival Eikon and steal their newest blueprints for the next generation of s…

JOBS Review. Films Falls Short In A Lot Of Ways

JOBS Review By: RAMA
Today we have RAMA reviewing JOBS for us. Please make sure to LIKE his Facebook page and make sure to follow him on Twitter.


This film could have so much potential and I’m not going to lie, I did enjoy some moments, and my goodness, every actor featured in this film looked and probably even behaved almost exactly like the real life characters they portray, especially Ashton Kutcher. I still don’t think Ashton is a great actor but the man sure does resemble Jobs, it’s quite eerie. But JOBS falls short in a lot of ways. It’s a nice effort, you gotta give the filmmakers kudos for trying, but the film falls short.


It only takes one person to start a revolution.

The extraordinary story of Steve Jobs, the original innovator and ground-breaking entrepreneur who let nothing stand in the way of greatness. The film tells the epic and turbulent story of Jobs as he blazed a trail that changed technology — and the world – forever.

Maybe some of you have read Walter Isaacson’s bo…

A Divorce For The Seventh Son

The fallout from the divorce of former filmmaking sweethearts Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures continues. With Legendary already agreeing to drop future financial interest in the Man Of Steel franchise for a cut of Interstellar’s action, the two companies have now parted ways over Jeff Bridges adventure The Seventh Son.

Legendary originally financed the fantasy film, which sees Bridges as a warrior wizard who's training Ben Barnes to fight witches. It’s already been plagued with delays, including issues in completing the effects in time for the release date.



Up until last month, Warners was still planning to release the film, having brought Bridges, Barnes, Antje Traue, Kit Harington and director Sergei Bodrov to the San Diego Comic-Con to promote the movie.

Still, the situation is not completely hopeless: Legendary has made a new pact with Universal, so it will take over responsibility for finding the movie a new birth. At least, everyone involved will hope it finds a new hom…

Kick-Ass 2 Review. How Does The Film Fare Against More Polished Superhero Flicks

Kick-Ass 2 Review By: MattInRC
The wild Kick-Ass 2 delivers all the fun and gore of the first, even if it betrays some of its morals.


Comic book movies have followed a parallel path with the Sci-Fi & Action genres ever since Bryan Singer's X-Men: due to the nature of the characters, it's perfectly acceptable to display implausible violence. Whether it's watching an entire city leveled or some fantastic move by a superhuman or mutant, we've been willing to play along. But when a comic book film proposes that it's better than that - and then proceeds to display the same sort of images - casual fans might have a hard time distinguishing between it and the litany of films which occupy Summer theaters. This is where Kick-Ass 2 finds itself, a totally enjoyable experience even if it's exactly opposite of what it wants to be.


The world of real-life crime fighting has weighed heavily on our titular hero (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz), wh…

Vin Diesel Joins Soldiers Of The Sun

As he continues to dance just to the other side of official announcements about voicing a role on Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vin Diesel clearly plans to keep sci-fi in his future. He’ll next be on our screens in Riddick and has just attached himself to Arash Amel’s script Soldiers Of The Sun.

Amel, who wrote upcoming Nicole Kidman film Grace Of Monaco, here tackles a very different subject, one that couldn’t be further away from a Grace Kelly biopic. Soldiers is set in a post-apocalyptic future where a squad of troopers is battling aliens who have taken over Mexico and, presumably other places on Earth.

As they serve out their tour of duty, the soldiers catch wind of a fabled city of gold that the extra-terrestrials, known as Orcs, are occupying. So begins a battle to liberate the place and its riches. Universal has nabbed the rights to this one, which Vin Diesel will producer alongside Lorenzo di Bonaventura. The studio is looking to find another ensemble film that could kick …
