Review: Iron man 3

Ever since Iron man 1, I’ve been in love with Tony Stark and his stories. Though Iron man 2 was – for me at least –  a bit of a disappointment, after seeing The Avengers I just knew Iron man 3 would be awesome. And it didn’t disappoint. (Mind that I haven’t read the comics and therefore can’t comment on a certain plot twist some Marvel fans seem to hate).

Review: Gothika

I’m not a big fan of horror movies – and I really wouldn’t want to categorize Gothika as such, because I didn’t pee my pants during any part of the movie – so when I saw the movie being classified as such, I didn’t want to see it.

Review: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is about Harry (RDJ), a petty thief stumbling into an acting audition, who gets himself into trouble alongside a  gay private eye (Perry) and his high school crush (Harmony).

Review: Tropic Thunder

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard and so frequently (The Avengers came close) in my life because of a movie. Tropic Thunder is a work of genius! The ensemble cast was great – honorary mention: Tom Cruise, who’ve I’ve never liked – and the storyline was hilarious, although a bit unbelievable.  It’s basically about a group of self-absorbed actors (although I think one of them is a rapper of some sort) who are trying to make a movie called Tropic Thunder. Of all the actors Kirk (Downey Jr.) is the only acclaimed one and has won a lot of Oscars; he’s playing a black guy in the movie. Tugg (Stiller) is an action movie has-been and Jack Black’s character is a comedian who wants to be taken seriously.
