Speed Racer Movie Review

I thought this movie sucked and my girlfriend agreed with me, but the rest of the audience gave it applause. I will say the good thing is it was as corny and cheesy as the cartoon. I have to give the producers props for making it true to the cartoon. They did get a bit artsy, but they even did that in a real corny way.

As the rest of the audience cheered I won't ruin this one by letting you i on the plot. The things I didn't like was that it was way too colorful. It was so vibrant that I couldn't get into the movie at all. I don't really care for any of the actors either. They all were pretty bland.

If you weren't really into the cartoon skip this one all together. I also, don't suggest taking your kids to this movie. The kids seemed to think it was boring as well. It was like watching kids play with hot wheels. That pretty much sums it up for me.

Deception Movie Review

This movie is good, but it fails to capture the audience. With this type of thriller you should really be sitting there trying to guess what is going to happen next. The plot is so obvious you quickly just know, and don't care much. Maybe that is why the movie is good, I just really sat there and watched the show.

I will say it was definitely cool seeing a movie where the main character is an accountant, that isn't an absolute bore. I will say it depicted the life of an auditor pretty well, but the engagement are usually a bit longer. The whole thing about being in the conference room and everything was dead on. It is also typical for there to be a few more auditors crowded in that room.

Well most of the movie doesn't involve accounting, it involves a sex club and a scheme. I don't think I would ruin the movie if I divulged the whole plot but there could be a chance my lack of interest was due to a lazy day. Have fun at the theatre.
