Movie Review: Colombiana

Movie Review: Colombiana
What it is about:
A young girl in Colombia witnesses her parent’s murder by a local mob boss. From that day on her life’s goal is to become a killer and to avenge her parents death. The movie will take you several of Cataleya’s hits leading up to her final revenge.
What I thought it:
My opinion might not be that of the masses but I loved this movie! I love movies where the female is the one doing all the ass kicking and Zoe Saldana definitely kicks some major ass in this movie. It is definitely a shoot ‘em up and blow ‘em up sort of movie with lots of fight scenes and plenty of bullets flying everywhere. Ok, are there some scenes that are completely outlandish and not even remotely believable, sure there are, however, that did not detract from my enjoyment of this movie. My recommendation is to just sit back and let the movie entertain you and not get caught up in those moments. That’s what I did and I highly enjoyed the flick, as did my movie going buddy CeCe from bronzegoddessbeauty.com . My co-worker also saw the film this weekend and got caught up in the outlandish moments and therefore thought the movie terrible, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Personally, this movie was one of my favorites of the summer.
Rating:
Go see it if you are in the mood for shoot ‘em up and blow ‘em up sort of movie

Movie Review: Conan the Barbarian

Conan the Barbarian:
Run Time: 112 mins
Rating: R
What it is about:
1000 years prior a kingdom rose from the dust to become nearly invincible, this kingdom called upon the dead as necromancers.  Only the Barbarian tribes stood against the necromancer kingdom and destroyed the mask which their source of power. The Barbarian’s destroyed the mask and scattered the pieces across the globe. It was foretold that one day a man would raise and put the mask back together, but one battle born man would rise to stop him. Conon was born in the midst of battle and even as a small boy was a fierce warrior. One day his village is attacked by a man holding a mask, they kill Conan’s father in front of him and take that last piece. For 20 years Conan lives for vengeance, and finally it is almost upon him.
What I thought:
This movie is so terrible it’s fantastic! The pure cheesiness of the movie just calls for laughter and I was not the only one laughing at the movie, so was the rest of the theater. I don’t think this movie was supposed to be a comedy but that’s how I treated it, although, I went into this movie expecting the worst. My sole expectation was to look at half naked man candy for an hour and a half and that expectation was met. LOL! There was lots of action, bloodshed and some decent effects. The acting as expected was terrible the plot line also terrible, but somehow it all worked. I can honestly say I was never bored from this movie and I laughed a lot. Although it probably wasn’t the kind of laughing that was intended.
Review:
I say go see it! But go with really low expectations and take it for what it is. A really cheesy action flick.
