Film Fridays: “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief”

“Percy Jackson” shares the same director as “Harry Potter.” So it’s not a surprise that the font for the opening title of the movie strangely looks Harry-like.  You can start comparing the similarities between Percy and Harry, but don’t let that bog you down. Percy has a new battle, a new story, and is an entirely new hero. Logan Lerman, whose previous work includes the short-lived Jack and Bobby, the 2007 western 3:10 to Yua, and the 2009 film Gamer, plays the teenage hero. He’s definitely a good fit, but as a fan of the books, I’m a little concerned about the differences between the book and the movie. Alas, it’s expected. Annabeth, the hero’s female companion (think Hermione) is supposed to be blonde, but in the movie she’s a brunette. I can only imagine that it has to do with blonde jokes because Annnabeth is the brains of the group. Also, Percy is supposed to uncap his pen, not click it, to turn the pen into a sword. And don’t get me started on an iPhone product placement as a strategy to defeat Medusa.

What I Expected

I expected the movie to be a fun-filled adventure full of magic via special effects. I also expect there to be amazing battle scenes, after all, the characters are supposed to get in touch with their ancient Greek side.

What It’s About

Percy Jackson, a New York teenager with dyslexia and ADHD, discovers that he is a demigod and the son of Poseidon, the god of oceans, earthquakes, and horses. He enters a summer camp for demigods which trains him to survive against battles with mythological monsters. During his training, he learns that he is blamed for the theft of Zeus’s lightning bolt, and Zeus would start a war against Poseidon if the bolt isn’t brought back.

You’ll Like

The special effects – there are a lot of them–a lot for a PG movie.

The monsters – they are plenty scary! The Minotaur and Medusa were incredibly done. I get chills looking at those snakes.

The adventure – going on quests across the nation and in a Masserati? What teenager wouldn’t pass on that.

Logan Lerman – he was perfect as Percy. We’ll see if he becomes Spiderman.

You’ll Dislike

The plot – I have to becareful on this. I enjoyed the movie, but having read the books, the film was a bastardization of the books. A lot of the important character development and important themes and symbols that made the book great was lost in this movie. We hardly spent any time in Camp Half Blood, which was essential to Percy’s trainings. And all the events were all wrong. Where is Annabeth’s famous NY Yankees cap of invisibility? Where is Percy’s ability to stay dry in the water? Where is Clarisse? Where is Dionysus? Where is the Oracle? Where are the different-themed cabins? Where is the Iris-messaging? Where is Cerebus? No where.

Being rushed – You may not think the movie felt rushed. But if you’ve read the book, it was. The Oracle, which was supposed to be important in a lot of Greek myths because it led to quests for heroes was no where to be seen. This was replaced with a quest to find 3 stupid pearls.

Rating

I’d give it 1.5 stars out of 5 If I never read the books I would’ve given a higher rating. But after reading about how it should be done, I felt devastated and cheated that the movie didn’t do the book any justice. At least with Harry Pottter or the Twilight series, their movies stuck with the books as best as they could. In Percy, it wasn’t so. It was almost an entirely different story. The only think they kept accurate was the beginning scene at the museum, although even then, Percy was supposed to kill his teacher (who was a Fury). Even the final battle scene was different!!! Anyway, I’m extremely angry and disappointed in this movie. I understand that there’s a lot of material in the books that needed to be cut to fit a 2 hour movie. But they cut out so much that they lose the integrity of the books. Can us fans get a do-over?

Film Fridays: “The Preacher’s Kid”

I know it’s Saturday. But apparently, this didn’t post:

I don’t normally watch BET or Black entertainment mainly because at times, I don’t relate to it. I mean, sure, I love watching Black comedies like “The Nutty Professor,” but this movie isn’t a comedy. It’s a drama. Despite having an all-Black cast, I found myself relating to the story. Perhaps it’s the fact that I’m a “preacher’s nephew,” which isn’t as bad as being the “preacher’s kid.” But I understand the pressure and the stereotype. Perhaps it’s the story of redemption and mistakes–we’ve all made mistakes. Whatever the case, you don’t have to be Black to appreciate this kind of movie.  You’ll like the message of the movie.

What I Expected

I didn’t expect much since the film had a low-budget. But I did think it was funny, that after reading stuff off the official movie website, that the character’s names signified something. For example, Angie would probably come from “Angel.” She’s innocent and pure. Then the bad guy in the movie is named “Devlin,” which suspiciously sounds like “Devil.” And then there’s Desiree, or “Desire,” who places a seductress.

What It’s About

LeToya Luckett (who was previously part of Destiny’s Child) plays Angie King, daughter of a preacher in Georgia. She’s tired of being in a Christian bubble and wants to discover life for herself, so she leaves and joins a traveling show in hopes of getting a record contract. But life doesn’t turn out  to be what she expected.

You’ll Like

The singing – I was ready to get my Gospel on. In some scenes, I felt like I was there, singing along in the Black church. There were a lot of singers, aside from LeToya and Tank, there was Trey Songz, Tammy Townsend, and Kierra ‘Kiki’ Sheard.

The hypocrisy – I think it’s a good reminder that Christians are imperfect. They are just as broken, which is why there’s redemption.

The plot – It’s a female version of “The Prodigal Son.” There are just a lot of scenes where I found myself saying “No, don’t choose that.” You feel sorry for  Angie, but it’s her fault for choosing certain things–life is your choice.

The stereotype of being a PK – if you’re a Christian, you pretty much know what I mean.

You’ll Dislike

Melodrama – There were some scenes that definitely needed a lot of drama. But there were other scenes are just had too much, over-the-top drama.

Repetition – The traveling show that Angie is part of is also a female version of “The Prodigal Son.” As a result, the story parallels in a way. I didn’t like that because I felt we were being beaten over the head with the concept. Stories like this one just needs to be its own story–not a story within a story. The concept of  the Prodigal Daughter needs to be subtle.

Character time – I thought that Sharif Atkin’s character should have received more on-screen time. If he’s supposed to be that knight-in-shining-armor, he wasn’t given the opportunity to act like it that much. There are also other supporting actors that should have gotten more on-screen time, like Rae’ven Larrymore Kelly’s character and Kiki Sheard’s character.

Lack of an ultimate showdown – I wanted a stronger turning point, an ultimate showdown that gets you to say, “Yah, and take THAT.”

Rating

I’d give it 3 stars out of 5 for the storyline and it’s willingness to explore some Christian stereotypes. I think LeToya did a remarkable job playing the character when she only had 4 days to research on the character. She was originally supposed to play “Desiree,” the seductress. I’m not a fan of Tank (who plays Devlin) or his acting. In my opinion, there wasn’t much acting–isn’t he a playa in real life anyway? And for a low budget film, I think it was more than what I expected. There were moments where I felt teary-eyed because I saw myself making the mistakes (even if they weren’t the same mistakes the main character made).

And for nostalgia’s sake, I love Essence Atkin’s supporting character role. I remember Essence from “Smart Guy.”

Film Fridays: “The Edge of Darkness”

I like Mel Gibson and his roles that made him famous (“Mad Max” series, “Lethal Weapon” series, “Braveheart,” “Forever Young”). Though one of the last movies he acted in was 2oo2’s “Signs” directed by M. Night Shyamalan, he kept himself busy as producer and screenwriter, creating successful movies as 2004’s “The Passion of the Christ” and 2006’s “Apocalypto.” When he wasn’t busy with movies, he was busy being in the public eye over alcohol abuse and allegations of anti-Semitism. Well, it seems the public forgive him as he stars in this new movie based from a 1985 BBC series of the same name.

What I Expected

Based on the trailer, I expected lots of action. And of course, because it’s Mel Gibson, I also expected some blood and guts being spilled at some point in the movie.

What It’s About

Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson) is a homicide detective for the Boston Police Department whose daughter is shot down in front of his home. As he tracks down his daughter’s killer he uncovers a larger conspiracy.

You’ll Like

Mel Gibson – I think it’s him at his best. He pulls off the Bostonian accent. And just my luck, this week, I’ve been longing to see Boston and hearing the famous Bostonian accents. I miss Boston; just not the winters. And my, Gibson is old–I see all the wrinkles of a worried father on his face. When he puts on the trench coat and goes interviewing suspects, I can’t help but think of “Columbo.”

Ray Winestone – His character is mysterious, although you can’t help but feel sympathetic for him because you’re unsure whether he is good or evil.

Action sequences – I think it goes to show that even older gentlemen can fight. Oh, and there’s definitely a lot of violence in this movie.

You’ll Dislike

The plot – Okay, we all know that the daughter is dead–it was in the trailer so I haven’t spoiled anything–but in some ways, it reminded me a lot of “Taken.” The grief-stricken dad has nothing to lose so he’s going to go all badass on you. I understand that it’s what a dad is going to do to save his daughter, or in this case to uncover the truth about his daughter. However, the whole conspiracy thing–it’s just been done before. I don’t want to reveal what the conspiracy is, but think about the time period that the original (the tv series) was set in and you’ll have your answer.

The confusion – I was somewhat confused as to who was good and who was bad and at which point of the movie. Maybe conspiracies just confuse me.

Rating

I’d give it 3.5 stars out of 5. Go watch the movie if you like action, mystery, and conspiracy movies. Don’t watch it if you have a weak stomach.

Film Fridays: “The Spy Next Door” Review

I’m a huge fan of the international martial artist-turned actor Jackie Chan. He comes across as a goof ball because he brings comedy into his routines. In many of his fight scenes, you can’t help but be in awe at his acrobatics and stunts, but laugh at the same time. I usually come home entertained.

What I Expected

I thought this movie would be similar to “The Pacifier” and I LOVED that movie because of the chemistry between the kids and Vin Diesel. But of course, it’s a family movie, and I’m sure most of the humor is for kids.

What It’s About

Chinese spy Bobby Ho (Chan) on loan to the CIA falls in love with his next door neighbor Gillian (Amber Valleta), a single mom and retires so he could live a normal life. However, her kids don’t get along with him. And to add to his problems, his espionage past comes back.

You’ll Like

The antics–yep, the same ones that Jackie Chan is famous for. However, there wasn’t anything new fighting-wise. We’ve seen all the moves that Jackie Chan has to offer, so it just seemed sort of recycled. Still funny though.

The kids–you’ll fall in love with them, especially the youngest. They make the movie, especially because of their relationship before and after getting to know Chan’s character.

Asian Male White Female (AMWF) Relationship–yes, score for the Asian male! You never see these kinds of relationships on the silver screen.

Jackie Chan singing–not many people know that he’s a trained opera singer.

You’ll Dislike

The predictability–I don’t think I need to explain this further.

George Lopez and Billy Rae Cyrus–I didn’t know they were going to be in this movie, so it was a complete surprise for me. But they aren’t believable in their roles.

The Villains–yes, I know it’s a kids movie, so I didn’t expect much villainy. But could they please work on their accents?

Rating

I didn’t fall in love with this movie as I did with “The Pacifier” or other movies where a tough guy plays a nanny-type role (“The Kindergarten Cop”). Yes, it was funny. But Chan’s supporting cast (Lopez, Cyrus) is just cheesy. They were probably casted because kids love them and parents could bear with them. Is it worse than Chan’s “The Tuxedo?” It’s definitely close to it. This is the kind of movie you need to watch with your kids, or if you’re simply a Chan fan, don’t shell out the $10–rent the DVD. I give it a 1.5 out 5 stars.

A Reader’s Response to “The Book of Eli.”

One reader wrote in about “The Book of Eli.” I love his response and you can see how passionate he is about the message of the movie–things that you and I may have missed on. We’ll give him an identity–we’ll call him, “The Scholarly Engineer.” Thank you for your refreshing response Scholarly Engineer.

You see, the Book of Eli is nothing more than a modern day analogue of the stories of the past. You may or may not recall it, but in the time period shortly following World War II, there was a huge movement for personal rights. After seeing Nazi Germany and Socialist Russia, the people of America and other free nations became very afraid of one thing – oppression. Out of that spawned cultural revolutions, such as beatniks and hippies. Many stories, and parodies of stories, were made to fulfill one of two purposes: spread the idea or capitalize on it. Books and movies were made, such as 1984, Soylent Green, Sleeper, and Fahrenheit 451.

People were very afraid of losing their freedoms, rights, and even identities. These stories took place in not-too-far-off futures where “big brother” was always watching. Perhaps these were all made in an effort to keep the people aware of the government so that they did not fall victim to it, but they were all widely accepted and popular.

In these modern times, we face a new fantastical disaster: the apocalypse. People are no longer afraid of losing their identities, but rather their lives altogether. You’ll easily notice a trend of stories and movies that depict the end of mankind. With this age of climate change, everybody wants everybody else to wake up and save mankind from a catastrophe.

In Fahrenheit 451, the oppressive government burns all the books of mankind in order to keep men uninformed of culture and identity, where as in The Book of Eli, mankind burns books in an attempt to deter its extinction. In Soylent Green, the oppressed are forced to eat the dead in ignorance, while in The Book of Eli, the dead are eaten out of necessity.

I believe that this movie is a very intelligent criticism of the change of mankind’s fears. This would slip past the normal person as merely an action movie in a post apocalyptic world. Perhaps I am seeing connections where there aren’t any, but I believe that The Book of Eli could be interpreted as a parody of past stories.

Perhaps the movie is reminding us of the past books and movies in order to remind us what they taught. In this day and age, we no longer fear the government, but rather want to protect it more than ever. Movies like Live Free or Die Hard and Eagle Eye teach us to blindly protect our government. In the end, we may fall victim to what the past decades vehemently warned us against.

Perhaps this movie is criticizing the fact that our current generations are ignorant of the past, and that we’ll buy the same book our parents did if the cover were changed just a little. It’s the easiest thing to change a past trend and put a new face on it for the next generation to eat up. Maybe this is a sign that the oppression warned about is already occurring. The ignorance of the populous allows the powerful to manipulate it. It may be for money now, but money is just a form of power, and a sign that greater oppression is yet to come.

And that is the true identity of The Book of Eli revealed. I may be an engineer, but I am quite the scholar.

Film Fridays: “The Book of Eli” Review

The first movie that I saw with Denzel Washington in it was the Civil War era piece, “Glory.” Since then, I’ve been seeing Washington in many leading roles. He’s played many roles, from real-life figures (“Malcom X,” “Remember the Titans”) to military men (“Crimson Tide,” “Courage Under Fire”) to detectives (“Training Day,” “Inside Man”). He’s a strong actor who plays strong roles. It’s not a surprise that in “The Book of Eli,” Washington takes on another role: bad ass warrior. Come on, it’s Denzel Washington. You can’t be disappointed by him, right?

What I Expected

After watching the trailer, I remembered feeling a sense of familiarity akin to “I Am Legend,” “The Road” and even “Terminator Salvation.” Here’s yet another movie about a post-apocalyptic world and the human survivors dealing with the aftermath. Scenes of the world’s devastation, of broken-down buildings, and humans living in isolation–been there, done that. What more can they add? What can they do to spin it around?

What It’s About

In a not-so-distant future, the world’s turned into a barren wasteland where it’s pretty much every man and woman for him or herself. A lone warrior-type named Eli (Washington) must trek his way across America while protecting a sacred book that apparently holds the key to save all of humanity.

You’ll Like

The stylism–The shade of the movie is all purposeful, just like in “The Road.” In fact, this movie is just like it but with more violence. You’ll notice the dreary sky, the smoke, the shades of grey, and you may feel like you’re suffocating with them.

The action sequences–there’s a couple that you’ll definitely enjoy and that solidifies Washington’s bad-assness (yes, I know that’s not a word). It’s brutal, grotesque, like “Kill Bill” with a slight sense of sadistic humor like in “Inglorious Basterds.”

The plot–you may think the following is a spoiler, but you could have guessed this while watching the trailer. He’s protecting the Bible, which is apparently the last one on Earth–come on, it has to be the last one in order to make protecting it that more desperate. Now, I don’t want to reveal any more spoilers, but let’s just say it’ll remind you of “Left Behind” meets “Fahreinheit 451” and how knowledge is truly power.

The villain–Gary Oldman is just genius. He’s a versatile actor, even if he often gets type-casted as playing villain roles. I only wish he was even more cruel. But the whole theme of Good versus Evil was there.

The eye candy–Mila Kunis. I’m in love with her. Not only is she beautiful, she can actually ACT, something Megan Fox cannot. Skip to the next bolded section because of this spoiler alert…don’t look if you don’t want to know…ready?…There was an almost-rape scene involving Kunis, almost unbearable to watch, and I could feel that manly protective side of me wanting to beat up the guys.

You’ll Dislike

The pace–it was incredibly slow. There were some parts where I could have used a faster pace. Maybe that’s what the directors were trying to accomplish, to make you feel like you’re walking with them. Boy, there was a lot of walking.

The originality–as soon as I saw the cars and the motorcycles driving through a desert, I immediately thought: “Mad Max.” And of course, some of the human beings have turned to cannibalism–that’s not spoiling much. In a post-apocalyptic world where animals are scarce, what else is there to eat? Thank God there was only a hint of it.

The plot–oh come on, I wanted more. For a movie that’s like an end-of-the-world Western, where the heck is the showdown?

The WTF moment–you’ll know what I’m talking about once you SEE it. The movie dropped hints all over, but I don’t think I am convinced. I just cannot commit to the explanation. Maybe you will. Turn to the next bolded section because you may think it’s a spoiler, even though it’s predictable…okay…ready?…let’s just say the real ending was reminiscent of “I Am Legend.”

Rating

I’m torn about this movie, pretty split. I think some of you will like it (the action sequences), and some of you will overtly hate it (maybe for it’s overtly religious theme). It wasn’t a bad movie, but it wasn’t a good movie either. Even Denzel Washington’s performance couldn’t redeem it. Maybe I’m already sick of all this post-apocalyptic crap in movies. But, it was a lot of fun to watch, especially with all those action scenes! I’d give it 3.5 stars out of 5.

2009: A Year in Movie Reviews

Photo credit: I Watch Stuff

2009 was a year of surprises (more on that in a later blog entry), and some movies just took me by surprise. Take for example, “Star Trek,” which was released on my birthday and jumped started a dying franchise. Now, I’m not a Trekkie, and I don’t know much about it, but I did like how it didn’t alienate (excuse the pun) people who weren’t into sci-fi. And then there are your CGI movies like “Up.” As much as I love all the Pixar movies, I didn’t think I could relate to this movie because the main character was an old man and an Asian boy in the boy scouts. I was wrong. When I saw that 3 minute montage (or however long it was) of an entire lifespan of a marriage being played out, I almost cried at how beautiful and tragic it all was.

Now, I got a chance to see 30 movies this year. By my calculations, if a movie ticket costs an average of $10, that means I spent $300 at the theaters, not to mention all that money on popcorn. But luckily, I watched 95% of the movies for free, thanks to the UCLA Blood and Platelet center, where for every time you donate platelets, you get 3 movie tickets for free.  I could only judge movies that I’ve seen. But keep in mind some of my biases: I’m a sucker for action and fight scenes; I love psychological dramas; I like movies that teach me an important lesson on life; I love comic books or movies that relate to some kind of power; and I love adventure movies.

What you get is this list of the Top 20 movies I loved:

  1. Up, released May 29, 2009 – Loved the innocence of the story, had lots of laughs, dealt with death and moving forward (quite mature for a Pixar movie) and finishing things that you started. There was definitely a lot of healing, and I felt like I appreciated life even more. It was somewhat a tear-jerker. It has quickly become my all-time favorite movie.
  2. Star Trek, Released May 8, 2009 – It was action packed! It was a refreshing take on the series. Superb casting. Being a nerd is cool. Heck, I even bought a Star Trek costume for the UCLA Dance Marathon.
  3. 500 Days of Summer – A bittersweet romantic tale, lots of times when you can laugh, and the twist in the end…very punny.
  4. Avatar, Released Dec. 18, 2009 – Can I just say wow? Sure, the storyline lacked a bit, and it felt like an alien version of “Pocahontas” and “Dances with Wolves,” with a mix of the Green Movement, but watching it in 3D was so worth the extra dollars. The jungle looked magnificent. I want my own avatar.
  5. District 9, Released Aug. 14, 2009 – I thought it was going to be like “Cloverfield.” I was glad I was wrong–I can’t take any more shaky camera movements. I loved the special effects and the “realness” of the storyline. And those robot weapons were cool too!
  6. Sherlock Holmes, Dec. 25, 2009 – It was quite a bromantic comedy filled with mystery. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law were hilarious as the 18th century Batman and Robin without the costumes. I loved the mystery too. I didn’t mind the storyline.
  7. Inglourious Basterds, Released Aug. 21, 2009 – Lots of blood, but not as much as “Kill Bill.” It was still fun and smart and quite artistic. Go Bear Jew! And Brad Pitt’s performance was comedic! And the villain…was just psychologically cruel. It made the movie leaving you wondering when he’ll get scalped. I only wished they introduced more of the Basterds though.
  8. The Blind Side, Released Nov. 20, 2009 – This was just an inspiring movie and I loved the fact that it was based on a true story. Loved how it taught about how family is beyond blood, that we need to be color blind, and how we can just start over if we could only be given a chance. Everyone should watch it. Great performances by the cast, especially Sandra Bullock.
  9. The Proposal, Released June 12, 2009 – Another Sandra Bullock movie with Ryan Reynolds. I thought it was going to be a chick flick. It was. But it was quite an entertaining chick flick at that, I’m not ashamed to say that. I never knew I could laugh so hard in a chick flick and still have my manhood intact.
  10. Invictus, Released Dec. 11, 2009 – Sure, it started out slow, but it was an inspiring movie. Matt Damon was excellent, and he had the South African accent and rugby body to prove it. I never realized how sports can bring a nation together. And it was definitely eye-opening to see what apartheid and segregation was like in a country that wasn’t the U.S. My only problem was they didn’t remain historically accurate. Mandela didn’t give the “Invictus” poem to the captain of the Rugby team.
  11. Harry Potter 6, Released July 15, 2009 – Harry Potter grows up and becomes even darker. I loved the action sequences. And Potter gets to kick Malfoy’s ass.
  12. Zombieland, Released Oct. 2, 2009 – Rule #1: Cardio. It was a fun flick. I loved all those survival rules.
  13. Taken, Released Jan 30, 2009 – It was a thriller about a father who would do anything to save his daughter from the sex trafficking industry. Liam Nielson was bad ass. And the beginning scene when the daughter gets kidnapped–it was so real and definitely every father’s worse nightmare.
  14. The Informant, Released Sept. 18, 2009 – Chubby Matt Damon as an informant to the FBI. It was pretty funny, although there were some things I didn’t quite get.
  15. Terminator 4, Released May 21, 2009 – A lot of people hated it, but I liked it. I wasn’t quite fond of Christian Bale’s performance in this one, because the storyline didn’t really need him. But I liked the whole reverse Pinocchio effect that the terminator doesn’t realize that he’s a robot.  And, I have a man crush on Sam Worthington. He could protect me any day.
  16. Transformers 2, Released June 24, 2009 – Lots of explosions, wished there were more robots. Not much of a storyline either, but I was okay with it.
  17. Wolverine, Released May 1, 2009 – It sucked. Well, I guess I thought it would be better because it was a bad-ass character like Wolverine, but the whole Deadpool fiasco was just stupid. I wished there were more mutants who displayed their powers. I did like the cameos–just not Will.i.am.
  18. Watchmen, Released Mar. 6, 2009 – I liked the whole deconstruction of the hero, which is sort of the same effect with Nolan’s “Batman.” And I liked how it stayed true with the comic book for the most part. I felt like there was something missing, I just don’t remember what it was–it’s been a couple months.
  19. Push, Released Feb. 6, 2009 – It was good, not great. I loved the fighting scenes when there were those kinds of scenes, but the heroes don’t even get to face-off with the main villain. What kind of superhero storyline is that? I did like all the twists at the end and how it came together. I just felt it was missing a huge conflict and the heroes who needed to avenge or redeem something.
  20. Twilight: New Moon, Released Nov. 20, 2009 – I surprisingly liked it. Loved the werewolves and the scene where they hunted down the red-headed Victoria. It was some-what artistic.

Seen, but it was just blah or okay (In no particular order):

  1. Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Released Jan. 16, 2009
  2. Gamer, Released Sept 4, 2009
  3. Whiteout, Released Sept. 11, 2009
