Tags: ,

So with a prepared mind-set I saw took a chance at this movie. I can tell you this, if you’re a fan of GI Joe you will be thoroughly entertained, which I did. If you’re not, then you may or may not like this film depending on how much you are expecting. Directed by John Chu(of the Step Up series fame and now chosen director for the Masters of the Universe remake) this is a complete a dumb but stupid loud fun package of a film.

Time Crisis: Looper Review

Posted: October 5, 2012 by VerryJerry in Movie

I have to admit, good marketing goes a long way. September is never really a month for great movies. It’s usually a dormant time for everyone to go to the big screen. Summer’s over and so, it begins: we all have to get back to the grind. Really, it usually tends to be bland that even movies that are being played are either dramas or low-budget action fest. That said, Looper really scores in timing here.

Okay so maybe it came out near the end of September(28th if you want the precise date jeez), it still is the perfect refresher in the wake of action summer. What’s the competition? Resident Evil? Hardly(even though that franchise tends to make millions no matter how stupid it gets) Maybe Dredd might have better chances(and that film my friend, is definitely worth more than any of RE movies combined)

Neverland is part of the Grimm’s Fairytale universe, but it fits well as a standalone story.

This dark rendition of Peter Pan is an absolute fun read in a swashbuckling Pirates of the Caribbean kind of way.

The story is about one fighting over past demons and coming to terms oneself, in the quest of good versus evil.

Book Review: Pride of Baghdad

Posted: June 7, 2012 by VerryJerry in Book reviews, Comics, Novels


Brain K.Vaughan knows how to pull emotional strings of people. The author of Y, The Last Man and Ex-Machinma is one of those simple but brilliant writers of our generation.

Loosely based off a true story, Pride of Baghdad is a very fictionalized account of a group of lions who escape from their zoo during the bombing of Iraq.

During the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, when the bombs were high and mighty, 4 lions did escape from a local zoo when the zoo got attacked.

Brian K. Vaughan and artist Niko Hendrichon puts the emotional bonds on the plot when they give the animals a voice, to attach to the reader.

This is no Lion King. More like a dark tragedy about society and family. A beautiful and necessary story that may be to surreal for many.

The book begins in the Baghdad zoo where life is easy for Zill a male lion, his two mates Noor and Safa and Noor’ son Ali. While Zill and Ali seem content with their zoo life, Noor dreams of escape while Safa has mood swings about their lives, silently missing the attention Zill used to give her .

Then the bombs start to fall an opportunity is at hand and naturally the next thing you know four are out of the zoo and into the streets.

Freedom won; but at what cost?where to go? and what is there to eat? Especially in war-torn Iraq where bullets, tanks and landmines all around. More challenges soon face them and the questions begging to be answered.

The story is played out very with simple expressive art, the book is very straightforward. This is a not a kid read but at the same time it’s definitely worth telling to a kid.

In Iraq war, there are no happy endings. The true strength of the book lies in the thought-provoking ideals and the simplicity of the nature of the animals that questions our humanity.

Review Rating: Off the chain! 5/5

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in a Wachowski movie?

Posted: June 7, 2012 by VerryJerry in Movie

Andy and Larry(or Lana) are back!

The Wachowski brothers were on silent hill for the last few years with a few hits or misses like The Invasion, Speed Racer and Ninja Assassin.

However only Speed Racer was their actual offspring and the other two were just produced and written by them.

That all does not matter now since the brothers have quite load up for us starting this year with their Cloud Atlas, a sci-fi film based on the book  of the same name.

The official plot is said to be – ”an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution.”

It has an ensemble cast of Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess, Keith David, James D’Arcy, Susan Sarandon, Hugo Weaving and Channing Tatum?

Speaking of Channing Tatum, the brothers have gotten him and Mila Kunis to star in another sci-fi planned trilogy (like The Matrix series)called ‘Jupiter Ascending‘ based on their screenplay.

Some plot details have been leaked regarding ‘Jupiter Ascending

– Its hero is an unassuming, recent Russian immigrant, played by Mila Kunis, who makes a living by scrubbing toilets. However, she has the exact same DNA as the Queen of the Universe, and therefore threatens her rule.
– It’s a world where humans are considered lesser beings, and “higher forms of life are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons”
– A bounty hunter, perhaps played by Channing Tatum, is sent to kill Kunis but instead falls in love with her(obviously)
– Joseph Gordon-Levitt might also be involved; unspecified reasons

The Host Cosmopolis Tease

Posted: March 28, 2012 by VerryJerry in Movie

Robbert Pattinson playing a badass?

Stephenie Meyer’s next book movie adaptation is a sci-fi?

Ok, firsts things first our very own Toronto-bred director David Croneberg, who gave us universal acclaimed films like A History Of Violence, Eastern Promises and the recent A Dangerous Method is now giving us a teaser of his next movie Cosmopolis starring…Robert Pattinson?

Make no mistake, Robert can act, provided you give him something outside Twilight, and he has proven that with Remember Me.

Still David Croneberg to take him in, it just might be something. This might be the role Pattinson can really hit for with the critics.

The Teaser is out. To be honest, there’s not much you can tell from it. It’s just too bizarre and too fast to get anything.

According to Wikipedia;

”Cosmopolis’ is the story of Eric Packer(Robert Pattinson), a 28 year old multi-billionaire asset manager who makes an odyssey across midtown Manhattan in order to get a haircut. The stretch limo which adorns the cover of the book is richly described as highly technical and very luxurious, filled with television screens and computer monitors, bulletproof and floored with Carrara marble. It is also cork lined to eliminate (though unsuccessfully, as Packer notes) the intrusion of street noise.

Packer’s voyage is obstructed by various traffic jams caused by a presidential visit to the city, a funeral procession for a Sufi rap star and a full-fledged riot. Along the way, the hero has several chance meetings with his wife, seeing her in a taxi, a bookstore, and lying naked in the street, taking part in a movie as an extra. Meanwhile, Packer is stalked by two men, a comical “pastry assassin” and an unstable “credible threat”. Through the course of the day, the protagonist loses incredible amounts of money for his clients by betting against the rise of the yen, a loss that parallels his own fall. Packer seems to relish being unburdened by the loss of so much money, even stopping to make sure he loses his wife’s fortune as well, to ensure his ruin is inevitable”.

Just look at it. Did he just shoot a bullet through his hand?!
