CHI-RAQ
CHI-RAQ
DVD
Price: $9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars No Peace But a Piece of..., February 6, 2016
This review is from: CHI-RAQ (Amazon Video)
Just because it was a predominantly black movie, it does not mean that it was good.

I was surprised to see Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, and Samuel L. Jackson playing as thugs pretty much.

I liked that the women stood up for their rights and so. They encouraged women from foreign countries to do the same as well.

Also, Nick Cannon's character, "Chi-Raq", was punished at the end for his crimes.

The downs of this movie:

- It really did not make any sense.
- It did seem stereotypical to all black people.
- The slogan is kind of stupid/ignorant.

I do not want to watch this movie again.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not Home Alone Without Macaulay Culkin, February 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Two of the best Christmas movies are included in this DVD set. I, as well as my family, love watching Home Alone 1 and Home Alone 2. Macaulay Culkin did great playing the role of Kevin when he was young. Despite of his current problems/status, he could make a comeback playing grown Kevin (same role) for an upcoming "Home Alone" movie or something similar.

No more "Home Alone" sequels...

This review is from: Love Ranch (DVD)
I did enjoy this movie despite of my star rating. It was interesting. I was glad to see Helen Mirren's character coming out of her husband's (Joe Pesci) shadow and starting a new brothel business eventually with the same legal prostitutes. I cannot remember if he died or went to prison. But, he lost control...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Traveling Case for Your Bathroom Items, February 6, 2016

It is better than what I expected. It carries toothpaste, toothbrush holders, soap, and other bathroom items successfully. I highly recommend this to anyone who travels somewhere like Las Vegas or Myrtle Beach.

1.0 out of 5 stars Movie That Definitely Should Be Burned or Thrown in the Trash, December 7, 2015
This review is from: Knock Knock (2015) (Amazon Video)
I thought that it was going to have a good ending in which Keanu Reeves's character escapes and kills those two lowlife women. But, I was disappointed. They seduced, tortured, raped, etc. him. They trashed his home, wrote very inappropriate words all over his property, and buried him alive in the back yard. They killed his colleague. They unfortunately left and probably went to target the next unsuspected guy.

Terrible movie. I cannot believe that Keanu Reeves would help produced this piece of garbage with Eli Roth.

Cool As Ice
Cool As Ice

4.0 out of 5 stars Who I Am When I Am Around You, April 2, 2015
This review is from: Cool As Ice (DVD)
This was a good movie that starred one of my favorite rap singers Vanilla Ice.

It seems that I get a great feeling or I am taken back in time whenever I watch a 80s/90s movie or even listen to the music back then.

Vanilla Ice played a cool, hip but good guy who developed feelings for a female who is about to attend college, lives with strict but good parents and curious brother, and has an arrogant boyfriend. Fortunately, she started becoming happier and finding out who she really is when she started spending time with Vanilla Ice's character. Her parents did not like and accept him until the near end when he rescued their son and her brother from gangsters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Sees No Color, March 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was the second time I watched this unique movie.

I liked it again. It was about an awkward black guy in his late 20's or early 30's wanting to find a black female. He grew tired of having relationships with different white females. He went on speed dating with random black females but unsuccessfully. Therefore, he asked his cousin's fiancee to hook him up with a black female. He however met a client of hers who is African-Canadian and biracial. His relationship with her started growing and intensifying. He did not take her seriously until she stopped talking to him and moved on with another man. He realized that he had to save his relationship with her or else...

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day (Theatrical)

5.0 out of 5 stars Going Through Tough Times, March 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
...probably the best Disney movie I have seen in years.

Alexander, the middle child, seemed to have bad luck because he was ignored, bullied, and treated like an outcast pretty much. But, his life changed when he wished that his family would also have a bad day too. His wish came true... But, everything turned out so much better when Alexander had his birthday party.

This movie would make you believe that bad days must happen so that you can have even better days ahead.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Man Not Driven By Suicide, March 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Man on a Ledge (Amazon Video)
The movie trailer made it seem like this man (Sam Worthington) was about to commit suicide.

But, that is not how it turned out.

He did what he did for a good reason. He was a former or still a current cop who probably was involved with the wrong people unintentionally. At least he received justice at the ending of the movie.

I was glad to see Elizabeth Banks in this movie as well because I loved her in a similar movie called "The Next Three Days".

3.0 out of 5 stars A Marvel Reject Movie, March 4, 2015
This review is from: Birdman (DVD)
...a sorry excuse for a superhero movie.

I think that Michael Keaton's character was just imagining that he can fly. Then, who knows, maybe he did actually fly. His daughter (Emma Stone), after all, saw him outside at the ending of the boring movie.

The main reason why I wanted to watch this movie in the first place is Emma Stone. I like her but not so much in this movie.
