Puss In Boots (2011)

Puss In Boots (2011)

Puss In Boots is an animated mixture of tales. There's Jack & Jill, Jack & The Beanstalk, The Golden Goose, Humpty Dumpty, Zorro (?) and probably a few more I didn't recognize. The main character is a cat that wields a sword. Obviously there's comedy, action and romance. There's even some moral values in the mix, and everything is well-animated. Great watch.

Samaritan (2012)

Samaritan (2012)

Samuel Jackson plays a Con-man. He's out of jail, but someone still holds a grudge against him. How will he handle the situation? Dramatically. It's a gritty action movie with fine-styled gore and a twisted plot. Reminds me a bit of Old Man, but the plot is completely different. I won't spoil it for you, go watch it, if you wish. It's not a movie I'd recommend, but it's not bad either, it's just way too serious for my taste.

 rated 3/5: not bad

Better Tomorrow 3 (1989)

Better Tomorrow 3 (1989)

The third part in the Better Tomorrow series was a bit of a let-down. It jumps into a time of war and follows friends through a battle where there's still a lot of emotion and action and a lot of blood, but somehow it doesn't have that edge that made the previous two so great. Maybe because the war is everywhere, it's no longer the main characters against the world, it's everyone against everyone. They no longer have any control, they're not steering the fight. It's still a good movie, it just doesn't compare to the forenamed two.

 rated 3/5: not bad

Better Tomorrow 2 (1987)

Better Tomorrow 2 (1987)

Better Tomorrow 2 is even better than the first one. One of the main characters is dead, but his brother (who looks just like him, and is acted by the same person, Yun-Fat) appears instead. Out of the whole Better Tomorrow trilogy this is my definite favorite. The plot features the same emotional action-packed underworld frenzy the first one did, and there's even more of it. The end is a showdown like you've never seen before. Well maybe it's not that amazing, I shouldn't hype it up, but there are a lot of people dying in various ways and it's a great movie. If you like HK action this is a classic you'll need to watch.

Better Tomorrow (1986)

Better Tomorrow (1986)

Chow Yun-Fat stars together with a couple of other actors I don't remember the names of in a brutal and bizarre tale of the Asian underworld. There's a counterfeiting operation going on, there are bad guys, there are good guys, there's a bad guy with a brother studying to be a cop. He's about to quit being bad when his dad is killed, his brother blames him, his best friend avenges him and becomes a cripple. There's emotion. There's action. There's a lot of blood. It's Hong Kong Action when it's as best, and did I mention it's directed by John Woo? I've watched this one a few times, most recently last week. It's still good. :)

The Pacifier (2005)

Pacifier (2005)

Vin Diesel, a Navy Seals officer, gets a rather awkward assignment guarding a group of kids while their mother is away on some secret government business. It's a Disney movie, so it deals a lot with the family and their various differences and problems. At the same time there's a lot of action, it moves fast, there's a lot of comedy, it's a family movie. Vin Diesel plays his role well, as does everyone else he interacts with.

What else is there to say? If you know Disney, you know what this is going to be about. Good movie.
