Power Rangers

Image result for power ranger movie

When they released this movie the makers said they were proud of the diversity of the characters, but the power rangers have always been different colours.

At the beginning of the movie there was a clash in personalities and they were not getting on but once they all morphed into one monster they became very attached to each other.

There are a lot of enemies to fight including robot dinosaurs. If i were to name these i’d call them R2Dtworanasaurus rex.

When they first become Power Rangers they find themselves trapped beneath prehistoric alien space rock, I was hoping for a meteor storyline.

This wasn't as bad as I was expecting. 5 Marks(immons) out of 10

Molly's Game

I asked my mate if he wanted to come to the cinema, he said "is anyone else coming and what are you watching", I said "Molly's Game", he said "I don't know her but what are we watching?".

Jessica Chastain plays Molly Bloom, a high stakes poker hostess. She hosted to some of LA's richest men including a very famous actor, she found out he was good at poker first hand.

She would provide them with food and drink. The fruit selection wasn't great because you would hear the players say they only had a pear.

Molly is then arrested for illegal gambling, she doesn't know how they found out and is annoyed, I should think the FBI bug her.

As well as other crimes, she is also accused of prostitution. She pays her lawyer (Idris Elba) to get her off, which is the sort of thing they are accusing her of doing.

This is an excellent movie in which Jessica Chastain shines. I give it 8 Marks(immons) out of 10.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Image result for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

This movie was directed by Espen Sandberg

The opening sequence sees Jack Sparrow attempting to steal a safe from a bank. The plan goes wrong and they end up dragging the whole building through the town whilst a very drunk Jack tries to run behind, to look at, it was staggering.

Will Turners son, Henry, wants to break his fathers curse and sets out, with the help of Jack to find the Trident. The pirates in this movie have awful teeth so i was disappointed to discover the trident they were looking for was not chewing gum.

Carina Smyth is an accused witch and helps navigate the pirates to the Trident. They asked her to direct them and Espen Sandberg said “that’s my job”.

Before they make it to their destination they are confronted by an old enemy of Jack Sparrow, the cursed Captain Salazar. Salazar is spanish, which must be confusing as a sailor, as when asked ‘do you like the sea?”  he would reply “sí” to which the response would be ‘yes the sea, do you like it?” and he’d go “sí” which would result in a frustrated “yes the sea, DO YOU LIKE IT?’

I enjoyed the movie, I thought it was better than the previous 3. I give it 7 Marks(immons) out of 10.

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson star in this movie, neither have much hair but the Rock is boulder.

The gang are back but this time Dom Torreto is being blackmailed by cyber terrorist, Cipher. Computer geniuses using their skills to take over the world has been done so many times before, its hack.

The rest of the gang need help to find Dom and bring down the bad guys and they find this in government agent, Mr Nobody, played by Kurt Russell. Im not sure what the hierarchy is but Mr No Body is the Head.

At the end of the movie there is a great scene where the cars are racing a submarine, the franchise is known for showing underground racing.

I give this movie 7 Marks(simmons) out of 10.

The Founder

This is a story about how a milkshake machine salesman turns Macdonalds restaurant into a huge franchise, in both jobs he causes a stir.

Ray Kroc, played by Michael Keaton, is so blown away by the speedy service at the Macdonalds brothers small take away that he want to open a chain of the fast food restaurants all over america. Its the perfect fit because if a Kroc did open a restaurant you'd expect the service to be snappy.

He is told how the brothers designed the restaurant to achieve food to customers within 30 seconds of their order. They would rehearse the process using a tennis court marked in chalk. I think a tennis court is a great place to practice serving.

I told my mate about the movie up to the point where Kroc buys land to build on, he said "plot" and I was like "Ive just told you what its about!"

I give this movie 6 marks(immons) out of 10.

Hacksaw Ridge

I'm glad it was about Second World War as I think First World War trench movies are over the top.

God fearing Desmond Doss, played by Andrew Garfield, joins the army as a medic. He lands himself in trouble for refusing to Bare arms, which is weird because they are all wearing long sleeves.

For a movie about a pacifist this is rather Gruesome. Director Mel Gibson showcases some very violent scenes including a flame thrower burning men alive, these scenes are very believable, I'm guessing the actors put themselves out.

All of the many scenes where soldiers take bullets to the head are well shot.

Despite being horrifically bullied by his squadron, Doss single handedly rescues dozens of the soldiers and lowers them off of a cliff to safety, after that they couldn't help but look up to him.

I give this movie 8 Marks(immons) out of 10.

The Girl on the Train

On Saturday I watched The Girl on the Train, then got off and went to the cinema.

In this movie Emily Blunt plays a very drunk woman called Rachel, her performance was staggering.

She is jealous of her ex husbands new family. She decides to deal with this by watching them from the train to New York, which is one way.

Its a psychological film about stalking and its quite easy to follow.

I give this movie 7 Marks(simmons) out of 10.
