Reviews with extra views.
Ok I caught a few movies recently and wanted to share that with you. So this is mostly fluff about which movies I have seen and my feedback. May contain spoilers.
1. Don't mess with Zohan
Ok this is a comedy with Adam Sandler, he plays an Israeli assassin, who get's tired of the work and goes to to America to be a hair dresser. Mariah Carey makes a guest appearance in the movie.
Ok the movie is funny in ways, because the character is in some ways out of the 70's with his hair styles and sexual promiscuity.
Part of the movie shows this big corporation hiring these people that look like the minute men, (that militia group) they are hired to start rivalry between the Jewish and Palestinian community, then have the one blame the other for the mischief that happens, but in the end it all works out ok. The message of the movie is one of those can't we just get along this is America. Least that's how I interpreted it. Cause when he goes to America he ends up working in this hair shop for this Palestinian girl that he start to like, after he finishes doing half the older women in town ofcourse, cause that's suppose to be romantic and funny.
Eg. As part of the movie he literally satisfies the customers in more ways than one. Now most of the hair salon customers are over 60 so it's suppose to be funny. There are lot's of sassy over 60 out there, so don't get me wrong, I am just saying that's how the movie portrays it.
Now as funny as this movie was, not so much, but good for a laugh none the less, I kept thinking that the other message in the movie, really should have been "don't mess with Zohan." In the real world who knows what he was picking up with those adventures. I mean in the real world there is a real STD problem with the geriatric generation. High on that list HIV, HPV, Herpes. Viagra what have you done?
I thought it was particularly cute in the movie when they find the preparation H, and the mother of the guy Zohan is staying with and sleeping with says she uses it for her genital warts.
I kept thinking nice girl in movie, why you mess with Zohan. The title speaks for itself. No seriously if you take the movie for the comedic value it's meant to give it's good, but if you put any real spin on it, there are two messages in the movie, and for me the title says it best.
2. Sex in the city
Ok I have seen one episode of this show. I really thought it was about woman having sex in the city. Then some girl told me it's actually about trying to find true love. Ok. Then some guy at work said see the movie, it's really nice. Ok. So I saw the movie.
It's good. It's actually funny, and you don't have to have watched the show to get the movie. I won't ruin too much of this, but someone tries to get married, someone cheats, and ofcourse people have sex.
The guy who cheats was funny, he was like, it was just the one time. It was funny, but I had sympathy for them both. In the movie he had been without sex for 6 months, cause of the busy ice queen. I felt sorry for him. On the other hand, I felt bad for her when she was like, I changed for you, you broke us. Don't get me wrong, I don't think 6 days, 6 months, or six years is a good reason for cheating, but if something isn't working, talk about it first, before stepping out.
As it was her friends shared different views on this, some thought once was forgivable, she did not. I do think people can slip up, but in general if you love someone truly, then why step out?
Contrast this to the love letters that the Kerry character reads a little earlier in the movie. They are from a book of great loves, Napoleon to Josephine etc. I think there are people that can find each other in this world, and truly care about each other from start to finish, and truly leave everyone else out. I think that's still the concept that I still have.
So the movie leaves the question can love last. Sure it can, I mean the Kerri character breaks up with the Mr big character and they get back together, apparently they were dating for 10 years before trying to get married. So I guess it also depends on your concept of marriage and relationships.
All together this movie was worth seeing.
This was the next movie that I saw. I think Angelina Jolie is just great in this action packed movie. Now the movie is very Matrix, like, with a bit of terminator thrown in. I really liked it.
This was the second assassin movie for the weekend. I really don't want to give too much away here with this one.
Needless to say there was one part of the movie where she saves him, and it's that, come with me if you want to live feel. Also right at the beginning, this character does this almost Matrix like assassin move and it's like wow.
At one part of the movie I started to question the motivation of the characters and if they were telling the truth. I remember when the Gang Stalking thing started and I just came online, I was being told so many things and being directed at who to hate, and who not to hate. I am glad that I did not get sucked into that, because unintentionally, I could have been online placing blame on one group of people, and missing parts of the bigger picture. I thought of this when I was seeing the movie, now let's just say, you always have to find your own truth, you can't always trust everyone, not everyone will do the wrong thing when the truth comes out, and some characters just amaze you.
Needless to say, I still really think the Angelina Jolie character was the best and most amazing. I don't know if this movie needs a part two, but much like the Matrix it shows you some truth about how the real world works, with seeing things, almost synchronicity, but more so. It also has a message at the end.
Unlike 10 years ago when Matrix came out and I totally didn't connect with that movie at all, till years later, this movie I connected with more so from the beginning, because my awareness higher than it was before. If you are unaware, a lot of these movies just pass you by. I am sure some things passed me by on first viewing, but I hope to see it again. I also like the code in the movie that the first assassin breaks, it's also very Matrix like when you hear them say that. It's a neat movie.
I recommend this one out of all the ones that I saw.
This is an old one, not in theaters, but new on video. This kid has powers where he can teleport. Kind of how some people can astral travel in their sleep. Why not just call it astral teleportation?
Anyways, it's an ok flick about how those without powers always have to fear and destroy that which they don't understand, or fear. Kind of like X-men, but not as cool or anything.
The part that did catch my eye in this movie was that the bad guys were using electricity to control the jumping, there was a line about let's see how far you can jump with a thousand blots of electricity going through your brain, or something like that. I guess that would disrupt the neural synapse, also make it hard to concentrate on where you want to jump to.
It just reminded me of how people use electromagnetic harassment on targets of Gang Stalking to disrupt their lives, and my consistent question of, what else is behind it. Why do they have to keep us in an electronic cage, what else might be behind it, that we are not aware of, or even suspecting?
Anyways, the movie is cute. Worth renting. The only thing I can think of however is much like the X-men if you really did have such abilities, you would in no way shape or form use them with such frequency, not if you wanted to stay alive.
I always think if people have special abilities or talents they might want to keep their mouths shut, least they end up in government labs. I mean the government is investing large amounts of money into psi phenomenon for a reason. ESP, telekinesis, mind readers, remote viewers, and a whack of other talents we know nothing about. If you are not working for them, then can they really afford to have you running around scott free?
Think about this, sappers above you, mind readers below you, a target would really have their work cut out for them then. Just a thought.
Still the movie is cute, plus it's a two night rental.
5. Bourne Identity
Believe it or not, this movie really was great. Yes I realise it came out like a billion years ago, but I missed seeing it ok. So I finally saw it, I wanted to catch up on the series, but felt wrong about seeing three before 2, before 1 etc.
This movie is great and I really like the character. I think the trilogy is great, and I am glad to hear that a part 4 is in the works.
This was assassin movie number 3 for me. What can I say about this one, action packed, delivers from start to finish, and apparently even assassins get bored of the blood and guts, sure the pay is nice, the multiple identities are a bonus, but at the end of the day we all just want a little peace.
