Knight Rider (2008) TV-Show (Episode 01.01)

Justin Bruening, Deanna Russo, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Bruce Davison

I remember watching the old Knight Rider with David Hasselhoff that drove a car with a personality and had this cool light that everybody wanted to install in their car.

Now the son of Michael Knight drives a car with artificial intelligence that has transformers tecknology. It could be the son of Optimus Prime if Transformers had any means of reproduction at all, but i think the Great Maker didn’t think of that or it was just a kid’s show back then. I think Optimus banged a simple car when he visited earth, because the new KITT can only transform from a family car to a sport’s car and a truck. He cannot grow any arms and legs, dammit!

Now Michael junior who his surname is not Knight, but Traceur, found that someone has been messing with his mind so the purpose of the new series is to find out the truth and expose it. You know, the usual stuff.

This is the trailer for the pilot episode that I didn’t see yet. So there are two options.  I will see it or I will never see it.

Righteous Kill (2008)

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, 50 Cent, Carla Gugino, John Leguizamo, Donnie Wahlberg, Brian Dennehy

Two police detectives who refuse to retire, because they cannot think of themselves in the verge of death try to solve a series of murders which later suggest the prime suspect is a fellow colleague.

I was so bored in this movie that I though my nightmares would be a good change. Then I though that I have a blog to maintain so I tortured myself till the end.

De Niro and Pacino are very good actors. We all know that. Seeing this film I realised that I will never ever see a movie with two protagonists above their 6th decade of their life. A movie with an old guy and a hunk is bearable, but a movie with two hunks is superb. It doesn’t matter if they can act as long as the movie is making money.

The rest of the characters are more or less non-existent, except of Carla Gugino who speaks a little more.

Some of you might like it, but some of you won’t so watch it at your own risk.

Fly me to the Moon (2008)

Tim Curry, Robert Patrick, Buzz Aldrin, Nicollette Sheridan

Three young flies decide to live the adventure so they embark on the Apollo 11 flight to the moon.

I don’t know if it is the fact that I saw the movie in an imax theatre with 3d glasses, but I enjoyed the film. Actually it was really fun and when the astronauts landed on the moon and took the first steps I was touched. What’ s wrong with me?

This trailer was the reason I didn’t want to see the film at the first place, but then I said “Imax theatre, 3D glasses” and then I took the chance.

Bangkok Dangerous (2008)

Nicolas Cage

A hitman with a bad haircut has a series of jobs in Bangkok and betrays all his principals that kept him so far out of trouble or alive. He falls in love with a deaf/mute woman and bonds with a local guy.

A typical kind of story in order to make a movie with affordable dialogue. I liked the action scenes, but other than that I got bored. The end was pretty disappointing.

Actually there is a scene I found really hilarious. The mute girl asked with the help of her mother just one question. “What is your work?”. Not his name, not his age, not even if he is married. Way to go girl, you have more brains than any character in this movie.

Afro Samurai (2007) TV-Show

Samuel L. Jackson, Kelly Hu, Ron Perlman

A black samurai wants to avenge his father’ s death.

This is a five episode story and most part of it is blood spilling everywhere. Most of the part of the blood spilling is the Afro samurai who get his ass kicked pretty hard, but being a good brutal skillful samurai means that you will find a way at the last minute.

Well, it has great design, great music, great fighting sequences and if you like manga you will love it.

Step Brothers (2008)

Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Mary Steenburgen, Richard Jenkins

Two losers in their forties become step brothers when their parents get married.

There are some funny moments in this film, about two, I think. But other than that you can get annoyed seeing men act like 5 year olds and since this is a comedy they have to prevail by the end of the film. Wake up, parents!

This in not a trailer, this is the movie in two minutes. Good if you don’t have time to waste.

True Blood (2008) TV-Show

Anna Paquin, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Alexander Skaarsgard

The vampires have decided to reveal their existence to their… food. Two years later in a small town a waitress who can read people’ s minds meets a vampire and they fall in love.

I always enjoy stories about vampires, but this is not a story about vampires. It is a love story and one of the two just happens to be a vampire and the other reads people ‘s minds, but I already mentioned that. How normal. Oh, the vampire protagonist happens to be the beautiful mysterious guy with the face of a fragile melancholic rose. Blond definitely is not Anna Paquin’ s color.

As I said before love stories are boring, but a love story with vampires and a pile of ten corpses at each episode is exciting. This one has only two bodies at the second episode and they didn’t bother to die from blood loss. Seeing the first episode I made myself believe that the second must be a little more interesting, but I was wrong. At the end of episode 2 I had the feeling that I saw 3 boring movies in a row. This means that I won’t be seeing the rest of the season.

Who is the Witchblade?

I was surfing on the net and I found this beautiful and sexy poster. So I searched at imdb to see who is the woman portraying the Witchblade, but found nothing. Here is the official site where you can see the poster in bigger and tastier dimensions.

Space Chimps (2008)

Chimps are sent into space instead of humans in order to see if a living and breathing organism can survive a travel through a black hole.

This is the most logical thing to do. Animals have rights, but lab animals do not. They are the heroes of humanity, sacrificing themselves for our well being. I can live with that idea.

Another idea is that according to the film chimps have a high IQ that enables them to create a spacecraft from scraps and maneuver it through the black hole and back to earth. Uh oh, I said the whole story, but I guess you knew that already or you will tell by seeing the first minutes of the film. The next logical step is “The planet of the Apes” so I consider this the prequel.

You Don’t Mess with the Zohan (2008)

Adam Sandler, John Turturro, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Lainie Kazan

An Israeli Special Forces Soldier fakes his death so he can re-emerge in New York City as a hair stylist.

A movie that I do not wish to see again even though it has few good moments. The problem is that as a girl grown up in the Western world and attitude it is hard to imagine a guy who would… please so many women over-aged and over-weight. The rest is the usual stuff. World peace and prosperity and he fells for the young and skinny.
