I’m at it again! Check out what I’ve been seeing in theaters.
Transformers: Age of Extinction
I’m not the biggest Transformers fan, but I definitely wanted to see this one. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, expect from the fact that it’s almost 3 hours long. It did feel long, but not as long as I expected. In this fourth Transformers film, a mechanic (Mark Wahlberg) and his family team up with the Autobots as they are targeted by a bounty hunter from another world. Michael Bay really did do a great job on the film! There of course was a ton of action, but it was combined with the perfect amount of comedy. Really a great film, and I would give it 3.7 out of 5 stars.
My expectations were not very high when I walked into the theater. I expected it to be funny, but not hilarious. I seemed to compare it to other Melissa McCarthy films, such as The Heat and Identify Thief, which was not a good idea. It wasn’t one of the best. The film followed a woman (McCarthy) after she lost her job and discovered that her husband had been unfaithful. She decides to hit the road with her profane and hard-drinking grandmother (Susan Sarandon). There were definitely funny parts, but overall I would give it 2.5 our of 5 stars. I absolutely love Melissa McCarthy, but this wasn’t her best.
Million Dollar Arm
This film is a little bit older than the past two. I really did not know what to expect, but I loved it! The film follows a sports agent (Jon Hamm) who decides to stage an unconventional recruitment strategy to get talented Indian cricket players to play Major League Baseball. It was a wonderful film based off an amazing true story. I would recommend this Disney film to anyone and everyone! I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I could not wait to see this movie. It sounded hilarious, and I was not disappointed. Starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz, it follows a married couple who wake up to discover that the sex tape they made the evening before to spice up their love life, has gone missing. They head out on a frantic search for its whereabouts and run into some crazy roadblocks. I laughed more than I thought I would, and I fell in love with Jason and Cameron even more (which I did not know was possible). I would give it 4.8 out of 5 stars.
