Total Recall (2012)
Eh, looks sort of promising….but I kept comparing it to the original and kept thinking maybe it will not be so great. The only good thing I can say about it right now is the technology in the movie looks good, other than that I am not sure if it will be worth paying $10+ dollars to watch!
The Lincoln Lawyer (2011)
This is a quick review of the film which I definitely wanted to add to my “must see” list when I first saw the preview for it. So I finally got a chance to watch it today and it was a pretty good film that kept you trying to figure out how Mick (played by Matthew McConaughey) was going to get himself out of the sticky issue between his client Louis (Ryan Phillippe). For those asking why the movie is named the Lincoln Lawyer is due to Mick (McConaughey) being driven around by Earl (played by Laurence Mason from Hackers), and conducting his lawyer duties in a Lincoln Town Car.
This movie definitely gives us a new insight into the world of defense lawyers, and how there is always one case that makes them rethink about defending the usually guilty individuals in a court of law. The last defense lawyer based movie that comes to mind that which I enjoyed as much as this one was The Devil’s Advocate. There are some other known actors in the film as well (John Leguizamo, Marisa Tomei, and William H. Macy to name a few).
All in all the movie will keep you viewing and entertained, especially if you want to watch a movie but not sure what to watch. I don’t really want to add to much info on what happens so not to spoil it for anyone, so just pop it in and enjoy.
This is a quick review of the film which I wanted to see when I saw a preview of it late last year. So I finally got to watch it today and it was pretty interesting in that it keeps your attention, and does not necessarily start off slow but drops you into the events like a car hitting the ground with the wheels spinning towards the action.
Chase Crawford (Gossip Girl) role in the movie was not bad in that he was not trying to do a very thuggish drug dealer type acting (thank god), but more of a guy trying to escape his problems by dealing. 50 Cent was not really doing much to step out of his typical typecasting, played the main supplier for Chase Crawford’s character. The rest of the cast are basically today’s typical yuppie upper East side teenager who uses mommy and daddy’s money to buy drugs, clothes, and throw parties (with exception of Emma Roberts character which is the ideal girl for Chase Crawford’s character).
All in all the movie did not feel too long, and gives you the feeling of peeping into the life of the characters. If you are on the fence about watching it just give it a try and see what you think of it.
