I LOVE TESE MOVIES – Ever since the movie “Cars” came out I have been tickled by these types of movies.. My kids loved it and watched it at least 1-2 times a day. There is enough of a story and details to keep even an adult entertained. Enough about the general movies, more about this one Specifically.  Considering this is a “cartoon” they, once again, paid a lot of attention to detail. Flight controll surfaces work almost perfectly as they are moving. Most kids movies I have seen either dont show the controll surfaces move or they move with no relation on the movements of the plane. As for the movie, just take life fromt the perspective of a purpose build air craft allows us to see life for what it really is..  Many of us approach life with the items we are handed and get frustrated because we are unhappy but, what about the things we really want, what about the things we believe we can do? .. Go out an get what you want, be friendly, dont forget who helps you, and even the best things in life can be hard and take a bit of work .  These are all things that this movie tells us but, with a great “feel Good” story.  Dont forget to pay attention to the details of landscape and background. There was some real though put into the composition of the movie that can leave you in aww.

Rating: PG-13
Run Time: 2 hours 5 Minutes
Type: Caper story / Thriller
Dilly Rating: Movie House
Language: Mild over all, very little
Main Charcters: Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Melanie Laurent, Morgan Freeman, Michale Caine,  Michael Kelly, Common, David Warshofsky, Jose Garcia, Jessica Lindsey
Release Date: May 31,2013

Summary: Charismatic magician Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) leads a team of talented illusionists called the Four Horsemen. Atlas and his comrades mesmerize audiences with a pair of amazing magic shows that drain the bank accounts of the corrupt and funnel the money to audience members. A federal agent (Mark Ruffalo) and an Interpol detective (Mélanie Laurent) intend to rein in the Horsemen before their next caper, and they turn to Thaddeus (Morgan Freeman), a famous debunker, for help.I love being mistified!

I love “Magic” because, although I know that it is all just optical illousions but it is something I don’t need to understand to enjoy so that being said I really wanted to watch this one.  I will admit, about 1/3 the way through the movie, I thought I was going be to extreemly dissapointed. I felt like they were telling the outcome of the story before they finished the movie but, I was mistaken. After watching the whole thing I realized that they were tricking me into believeing that I knew the story when I was dead wrong. The twist at the end, although by that time you could almost tell it was coming, was great..  With the “getting back at the man” theme underton it was a great feel good, be mistified movie!.

Hours – Movie Review


Rating PG-13
Time: 1 hour 37 minuets
Type: Thriller / Drama
Dilly Rating: Can I get a refund on my time?
Language: This one has the typical amount of PG-13 language including the one “F-bomb”
Main characters: Paul Walker, Genesis Rodriguez, TJ Hassan, Michelle Torres, ect
Release Date: December 12, 2013

Movie summary: A new father (Paul Walker) must remain behind and try to keep his prematurely born daughter alive after Hurricane Katrina knocks out the power in their New Orleans hospital.

I will admit, when I saw this one in the listing, I looked forward to it. It has a potential with the story line and with Paul Walker but was sorely disappointed with it as we watched. To be completely honest about half way through the movie I could have walked away and not felt bad (which for me is rare because I like to know how things ends). To be completely honest, this is a really slow movie with not much going on. Production of this movie has to be done of a minimal budget and Paul must have been doing it out of charity. If you are looking for something to watch, keep looking. if you are desperate, you may want to keep looking then as well.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 – Movie Review


The Hunger Games: Mocking jay, Part 1

Rating: PG-13
Time: 2 Hours 3 Minutes
Type:  Fantasy / Drama
Dilly Rating:  movie house
Language: Very Little
Main characters: Jennifer Laurence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, woody Harrelson, Philip Hoffman
Released: November 21, 2014

I will admit the fact that this series is more “Chick Flick” oriented; I have enjoyed it so far. This “episode” (I only say that because a lot of the stories portrayed in movies these days are more like extended TV episodes) I am not saying that is bad, I just hate waiting a year or more to get more of the story. Outside of that, this was, to me the one where things finally start to turn. Up until now the story has told about a people suppressed by their “Government”. In this area, the tables start to turn with a form of a rebellion. There is some hint to the idea that those that used to be on the same team no longer are but there is also the conflicting idea that there is some manipulation involved causing them to act in ways that they would not otherwise. I believe that if people really were watching this and relating it to real life scenarios, they would possibly wizen up to the way things really are but because this is only “entertainment” few can see the correlation between entertainment and reality. I cannot say that this one was spectacular but I will say it was one that I enjoyed and once the entire series it out, I may even be looking to but the collection.

The Maze Runner


Maze runner

Rating: PG-13
Time: 1 hour 53 minuets
Type: Thriller/Action
Dilly Rating: Movie House
Language: Very little
Main characters: Daykab o’Brien – Kaya Scodelario – Will Poulter – Tomas  Brodie – KI-Hong Lee
Released: September 19, 2014

After seeing this movie 2 times now (my wife wanted to see it as well) I would say it is defiantly a good watch. There is a lot of the same “Vib” as Hunger games with the “the world as we know it has changed” going on. It does drag at times as the plot is being built but, the flow is good as you are able to explore ideas of how to get out of the situation they are in and finding out why they are in it to begin with. Overall no complaints and it is apparent at the end that they are opening it up for a sequel. I would even be willing to say that down the road this may be worth buying once it is a bit cheaper.

Lucy – Movie Review


Rating: R – (swear it was PG-13)
Time: 1 hour 30 minuets
Type: Action / Science Fiction (some comedy)
Dilly Rating: Keeper
Language: Very little
Main characters: Scarlett Johansson
Released: June 4 , 2014

I will admit, from the first time I saw the movie trailer I wanted to see this one. Looking back I did not realize that it was rated “R”, I was sure it was PG-13. Language is minimal nothing, specific sticks out. I guess the rating could be based on Violence and Sexual innuendo but I would think it is safe for the grownups. The format of the movie and how the thought was presented is a bit different from what I thought it would be but overall I would say this was a good one that I do want to see again. Partially because when I say this, the sub titles for when they are speaking in another language were in Spanish ( I was in Mexico) when I saw this one.

As for Movie content, I will admit, I have always wondered what would happen if we really could access the full capacity of our minds. I don’t think what is portrayed is accurate but it is entertaining for sure.

Divergent – Movie Review


Rating PG-13
Time: 2 hour 20 minutes
Type: Adventure / Action
Dilly Rating: Keeper
Language: Very little (did not notice any)
Main characters: Shailene WoodleyTheo James

I remember the previews on this one. (I know it is a book but I did not read the book and likely never will) the previews looked ok-good. I wasn’t sure how good it would be based on the preview alone but, It looked like a see in theaters at least once and was well worth it. This movie does appear to be a “Hunger games” knock off with a twist of Matrix like additives but, the story is well laid out and had enough twists to keep you thinking at least a little. Time wise, this is a long movie but, it did not feel too long.  The story line did leave a huge opening for the sequel as can only be expected. After seeing this movie for the first time I would say it is a keeper with the underlying theme of being yourself.  Many people believe that people need to conform to be accepted but you don’t. (not saying you should not still try to be a good person) as for the foundation, lots of drama, a fair amount of action, and a good story makes this a great movie that is well balanced for a full range of entertainment.

Gravity – Movie Review


Rating PG-13
Time: 1 hour 31 minuets
Type: Science fiction / Action
Dilly Rating: Watch once – rent
Language: Fair amount including the “F” bomb once
Main characters: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney

Before seeing this movie, I had heard many mixed reviews mostly in the negative Thus the slow review. After watching this I can understand the reviews both positive and negative. The movie trailers make it look like an intense Action movie. It is not, however, there are a few intense portions of action, the rest of the movie is more story and suspense with many stressful and helpless circumstances. The story its self is pretty simple but seems to have the purpose of inducing thoughts about your drive in life in general. If you watch this movie with the expectation to see a story, it is good. If you watch it for the tons of intense action it portrays in the preview however, you will be disappointed. I did find the ending a bit open ended as if opening it to a sequel although the story itself is just shy of complete or open to thoughts of what you personally would do next.

Movie Reviews

The moviesAll too often I hear reviews (good or bad) on new movies that I later find out are very inaccurate to what my thoughts are. Because of this, I have always wanted to give “real person” reviews on things such as Movies with a perspective other than the typical Trendy style reviews. Most of these will be 1 paragraph and I will attempt to get right to the point and stay fairly objective..

All movies will be PG-13 or lower (no “R”) If you search one and it is not here, let me know in the comments by clicking “leave a reply” below and I will get on it ASAP!

I will admit I tend to be a little behind the ball on seeing the latest and greatest movies but I will do all I can to keep up..
