JUNE MOVIE RANKINGS:
Another month has past, and with it many reviews. This is the second month on my site where I have reviewed nine movies which is pretty cool and provides a hefty movie rankings! Sorry for the late post, but we are here now and all I can say is, here are the rankings of movies for June 2014!!!:
#9- “3 Days to Kill”
40%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Good acting (mostly by Kevin Costner), the whole cancer idea, and the action scenes (of the few there were).
Cons: It dragged and got boring fast, they tried to stuff comedy down your throat and I didn’t really laugh at any of the jokes, and they promoted this movie to make it seem like an action, suspense movie with a guy only having three days to kill someone before he dies to get medicine, but instead they give you a movie about a man having to watch his daughter for three days while her mom is away, having “3 days to kill.”
#8- “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit”
67%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: The story was average, the acting was good (great job Chris Pine), and what few action scenes there were, they were good.
Cons: While watching, there were too many things distracting me, it dragged, there wasn’t much action as promoted, and it was an overall mediocre movie.
#7- “Mr. Peabody & Sherman”
74%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Great animation, the story was okay, they added good history, and it was funny.
Cons: The time traveling plot got confusing towards the end and there seemed to be errors in the plot while watching it that didn’t make sense (not having to do with history).
#6- “The Fast and the Furious”
77%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: The action scenes were good as well as the racing scenes and the story was decent.
Cons: There were a lot of terms about cars that I didn’t know of in this movie, seeing as how I am not a car person.
#5- “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”
79%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: It was good for a sequel (though not many people think so), the story was good, the action was great, there were awesome visual effects, it was funny, and the acting was good.
Cons: They tried to throw the history of the Transformers in a very short way, giving little time to explain anything and Optimus Prime barely had any screen time in it.
#4- “Grudge Match”
81%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: The story was rather good, the acting was good, it was funny, and it was cool watching the boxing scenes.
Cons: The amount of cussing, the ending was a bit cheesy, and the story seemed stretched out a bit.
86%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: The story was great, the action was great, the special effects were amazing, it was funny, and the acting was good.
Cons: The ending was kind of dumb in the sense of destroying the Allspark and how it took a while to see the huge battle and to see cars transforming.
#2- “The Lego Movie”
88%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: The plot was really good, the acting was great, the animation was awesome, and they incorporated my two favorite DC superheroes in it as a comedy duo.
Cons: I didn’t laugh at a lot of the jokes that they made and the way they made the water to look like legos made it hard to look at.
#1- “Edge of Tomorrow”
91%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: The story was very well-written, it gave great depth to the characters, it explained a lot of what was going on instead of confusing people like most sci-fi movies do, the acting was great (especially with the role Emily Blunt played), the visual effects were downright spectacular, it had a sense of humor, and the action scenes were just eye-candy.
Cons: It takes it little while in the beginning to jump start the movie.
There you have it for the month of June! I hope you people enjoyed my reviews and thought they were pretty good in the scores. “Edge of Tomorrow” is movie of the month for June and will be going up against “The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Zombieland,” “300,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Forrest Gump,” and the other movie of the months to come at the end of the year to see which movie will become the Movie of the Year for 2014!! Stay tuned for the next review.
