Netflix Delights With Two Original Movies

Last night after watching the premiere of American Ninja Warrior I was bored and desperate for a new movie to watch and so I went browsing on Netflix and I ultimately came across two Netflix Original Movies that were not only really fun to watch but actually very entertaining as well. So for all of you fellow Netflix subscribers and movie lovers I’m here to provide you spoiler-free reviews on these two original films.

True Memoirs of an International Assassin

If you love action movies and you love the comedian, Kevin James, this is a film worth watching for so many reasons. One, it’s got humor which is always a plus. Secondly, it’s surprisingly enjoyable if you’re just bored and needing a decent movie to satiate the new movie thirst. And three, it keeps you on your toes from beginning to end.

Kevin James’ character, Sam, is an aspiring author who writes a fictional story about an assassin and his top secret missions but when his publisher takes his story and spruces up the tale by tweaking the title and calling it “True” Memoirs of an International Assassin rather than its original title (Memoirs of an International Assassin) a lot of trouble and unwanted attention comes Sam’s way and he partakes in a non-stop adventure that’s truly exciting from beginning to end.

It’s also an entirely family-friendly movie with the exception of a bit of cursing and some violence but besides that there’s nothing inappropriate about this film whatsoever which is always refreshing. What would I give the movie, you might ask? I’d give 3.5 out of 5 stars and 84 out of a 100. It wasn’t the greatest action movie I’ve ever seen but it was very, very enjoyable indeed. Definitely take a look at it if you ever get the chance.

The New Trailer for ‘Mission: Impossible-Fallout’ Promises Action, Action, and More Action

Every few years there’s a new Mission: Impossible movie to enjoy and this summer’s sixth entry into the spy thriller franchise looks to be the most action-packed installment yet. Here’s the trailer.

I saw Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation in the movie theaters three years ago and it was positively awesome. This film seems to have taken that sense of exhilarating action to the next level as this trailer contains nonstop action throughout its two minute and thirty-three second run time and that is super exciting. It’s summer time and that means it’s blockbuster season and who doesn’t love thrilling blockbusters? I know I do.

I also like that this trailer provided a better insight into the new characters such as Henry Cavill’s CIA agent, August Walker, who is supposedly the main villain in this film. (Ha! That evil Superman theory is going to come true after all. Lol.)

And it seems that the stakes are kicked up yet another notch as Ethan Hunt’s arch nemesis, Solomon Lane, returns to enact his revenge. *rubbing my hands* Exciting.

All in all, this was a great trailer and now I’m beyond excited to see this film. Especially in IMAX. It’s going to be 100% amazing.

Here’s the official poster for the movie and I love it. It perfectly fits the tone of the movie and it’s just a well configured layout of a poster. It actually may be my favorite poster of the franchise so far which is definitely a good sign for the movie. Did I mention I can’t wait to see this film? 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

Is ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Going To Be A Major Success or an Unfortunate Flop?

The first time I was ever introduced to the Jurassic franchise was in the Spring of 2013. They had brought Jurassic Park back to the movie theaters in IMAX and my Daddy took me and my sister to see it. I had never seen Jurassic Park before then. I only knew that it was a famous movie about dinosaurs so I had no clue the ride I was in for. I walked out of that movie theater positively horrified and exhilarated at how incredible that film was. The dinosaurs looked real despite the fact that it was a 90s’ film. The music, composed by John Williams, was incredible. And my overall experience was just, in a word, fantastic.

Since watching Jurassic Park I have become a legitimate fan of the franchise. I’ve seen The Lost World: Jurassic Park which I really enjoyed and I’ve seen Jurassic World and now, with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a new installment for the franchise is close to roaring into theaters and I’m legitimately excited for it. But the question is, will Jurassic World be a fantastic movie or will it be a disappointment like its predecessor was? Well, that’s what I’m here to talk about and I hope you enjoy.

My Review of Baby Driver

Baby Driver was one of the best critiqued films this past summer and so that intrigued me highly on whether I wanted to see this movie or not. Well, I literally just finished watching the movie and I have to say, it was an impressive film that I had wished I had seen in the movies. The music was impeccable and had me bumping my foot, the action was engaging and intense, but what really shined about this movie was the overall story.

Baby, for that is the main character’s name, is a man who’s burdened with this constant ring in his ear after he experienced a traumatic car crash that happened to kill both of his parents when he was a child. To deal with the constant ring he listens to music all day, every day. When he was probably no more than eleven years old he stole the car of this rich guy, (Kevin Spacey’s character, Doc) and to pay him back he had to be the driver for all of the robberies Doc planned.
