Taken 3 

Glad to see that the story line for this movie those not involve Bryan (Liam Neeson) ex-wife and daughter being kidnapped. The movie was a bit sad as it focused on Bryan trying to prove he’s innocence in he’s wife death. When I had originally heard there was going to be a taken 3, I thought why would they do that the second one was not as great as the first one. The third instalment is going to be crap.

However I was pleasantly surprised, it was way better than the second movie. I would give this movie a 8.5/10. Love the action pack going on and the storyline which showcased Bryan trying to find out he’s wife killer and Kim (Maggie Grace) finding out that she is pregnant. I was showed that the ex wife would end up dying which is something that I like in a movie, having a storyline that the audience will not expect from you. Lenore’s (Famke Janssen) husband Stuart (Dougray role in her death was not as surprising, however he was good at masking he’s true nature until the very end. I want give any more details about the movie but do suggest that you watch it if you have not already. Towards the end of the movie I did not want the movie to end and was hoping there would be a taken 4 but it probably will not be as good as this movie.

50 Shades of Grey

50 shade of grey was one of the most anticipated movie of 2015, so when Valentine’s day arrived me and my friend decided we would watch the movie. I can honestly say that I was disappointed with the movie. This could have been due to the fact that I had not read the book prior to me watching the movie. I would  rate the movie a 5/10.

IMG_6800To begin with I did not think that the movie needed to be two hours long. There were scenes in the movie that was not really needed. The first scene that comes to mind would be the Rita Ora scene, Rita Ora character was only there for a few seconds that you could not fully recognise her, nor could you understand her either. The scene seemed pretty pointless and did not really relate with the plot.

Another pointless scene would be when Anna went home to visit her mum and Christian came to speak to her seeing as she would not return his phone call. It just did not feel like it was needed. The other scene alone would have probably been enough. Another thing that I was disappointed was the lack of BDSM that was shown in the movie. Now I’m not saying that I wanted to have seen the BDSM, but maybe if it was implied it would have been better. Christian seemed more controlling than anything, and the only time we saw the act of BDSM was right at the end, when Anna leaves him. I can honestly say that the ending annoyed me, and was even more annoyed when I heard there was going to be a second movie. I do not think I will be watching the second movie.

One of the few things that I did like would have to be that the sex scenes was not fully explicit. We were only shown one sex scene which was great. Over all the storyline was great. Just a really long movie as me and my friend ended up finding ways to fall asleep. However I asked my other friend who watched the movie who thought that it was ok and was pretty much like the book if you have read it.

To end with I think I had way too much expectations which left me disappointed.

Eye candy (hbtu) episode

IMG_6715

Eye candy is surprisingly a good show. I did not think it would be as good as it as the main character was Victoria Justice and this is not something that she has done so far. As i also watch the show stalker which is a CBS show I thought that they were both pretty similar. I would distinguish between the two saying while ‘Stalker’ is more of a grown up show as it focus on adults. Eye candy is something for the ages of 19 and over, its much more focused on a younger adult as it has a slight college feel with the party scene and drinking.

So this week episode was interesting to say the least, finally Lindy (Victoria Justice) and Tommy (Casey Deidrick) seem to be getting along, however I have a suspicion that Tommy is developing feelings for Lindy. That has got to be awkward considering that Ben, Lindy ex boyfriend, who she kind of got back with (their relationship was complicated) who is now deceased is Tommy’s best friend ( talk about drama). We also get to see another side of Lindy in this episode.

Gone is the heartbroken girl and replaced with someone who is angry and can fight. Connor ( John Garet Stoker) appears to be the person that Lindy is pissed of at. IMG_6717

While at risk of losing he’s job if he does not hand in a story that meets he’s boss requirements. Connor decides to write about the murders that have been happening. It is safe to say that everyone is pissed off at Connor, I wonder if Sophia or Lindy will forgive Connor considering that he is not apologetic for what he has done.

One character that I found entertaining was George, it was nice to finally see him away from the computer, not only did he help Lindy break into one of the victims apartment, but who knew he could also dance.

One thing that I love about the show is that just whenever you think that the suspect is the actual killer your wrong, which make me keep watching the show to find out who the person actually is. Just when it seems as though Jake has drugged Lindy it turns out he is actually innocent.

So far it looks like a good show, but who knows.

Empire “Pilot” episode

MV5BMTU2ODI1MDE2Ml5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTQ5Nzc1MzE@._V1_SX214_AL_ Empire is one of 2015 most talked about new shows. And I can confirm well based on the first episode that it is a good show. It has this weird yet creative essence about it, this is probably due to the flashback that we see.

However when discussing the essence I mean that it just has this lively vibe this is due to some of the music that is played, yet at the same time it has a dark vibe as Cookie (Taraji) was just recently realised from prison. Any ways enough about the “essence” of the show and let me review the pilots episode.

Empire opened up with a music intro, I’m not going to lie when Jamal was playing on his piano with his brother Hakeem rapping I literally thought that the show was a musical and it almost reminded me of Dream Girls. There is not many shows that is also based on music now a days which is what I found refreshing about Empire. The show is focused on Lucious (Terrance) trying to decide which one of his three sons will be the sole heir of his company. Andre is the eldest of the three and the only one who is not a musician he’s the CFO of empire and suffers from bipolar. Jamal is the middle son who is a singer/ songwriter and is also gay. In the pilot episode it looks as though all he wants is his fathers love. Hakeem is the youngest son probably the most famous out of all of them and is a rapper.

What I found the most interesting aspect of the show is how Lucious treats his son Jamal because of his sexuality. I love that the show shows the ugliness that goes on with people’s sexuality such as homophobia and does not paint a pretty picture. Just seeing cookie in the first episode I can see why she is called cookie, she’s such a strong character and you can clearly see that she does not take crap from anyone.

Although I do not like Lucious it is clear as day that he still loves Cookie. So far I have fully enjoyed the pilot episode and hope that throughout out the season it will remain consistent.

The Interview

To start of with I actually enjoyed the interview. I thought it was a decent film, after all the news coverage the film received, it made me want to watch the film. Plus it was starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. Having seen most of their movies I knew it would be pretty funny.

I love how the film opened up with Eminem, had no idea he was going to be in it and found him hilarious. Anyways I would probably rate the movie 7.5 out of 10. Reasons was although the movie was pretty funny I did find that the movie was a bit long. Although I did laugh at most part of the movie, there were scenes I would just sit and think how long has the movie been and is it going to end anytime soon?

I will suggests that you go ahead and watch the film and give me your feedback.
