Up! (2009)


Edward Asner, Christopher Plummer, Delroy Lindo, Jordan Nagai

An old man decides to make the journey of his lifetime by making his house air born with balloons. He have an 8 year old stowaway and he will meet new people only to find out that the biggest journey is life itself.

Pixar never seems to disappoint me in. After much consideration I decided that I love it. I say that because the story is not really a child’s story. It is about a grandpa who promised his wife to take her to a journey to South America and when he finally made the arrangements and bought the tickets she died. So he filled his house with balloons just before a mega-corporation could demolish it and send him to a retirement home. Isn’t that sad? Also the is the stowaway is kid who has it’s own sad story and they meet an explorer who has his own story and the story ends bitter happy.

If I were 10 years old I wouldn’t understant that, but kids are kids and they see things in theis bubble so they will enjoy it as much as I did.

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)


Ben Stiller, Amy Adams, Owen Wilson, Hank Azaria, Robin Williams, Steve Coogan

The former museum night guard knows success and fortune at his current job at being a TV-inventor. But when the displays at the museum he used to work  at are shipped to the Smithsonian storage rooms he will realize that he missed been an underpaid museum night guard. One day he receives a call for help from his miniature friends so he will decide to go to the rescue (by breaking the law and destroying some valuable artifacts, pieces of art and the historical building itself).

I absolutely find no reason to make a sequel and repeat the same story over and over again. The only difference is that they have some more displays to come alive and so what? Ben Stiller was on the verge of snoring while filming this movie. There was no indication of enjoying this. Hank Azaria was the only thing positive thing in the whole movie.

Don’t waste your time on the movies. Rent it on DVD.

Star Trek (2009)


Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Eric Bana, Bruce Greenwood, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Winona Ryder, Jennifer Morrison

The relaunch of the classic TV-Series is giving as a new story of how things could turn out in the future of our planet. So Trekkies forget everything you knew about Kirk and learn the new facts. The ones you didn’t know about the story I’m sure you had a great time.

I have seen all the episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation, Deep Space 9 and Voyager and I don’t know if I am a Trekkie, but I really enjoyed it. The movie is an adrenaline pump. The story has huge black holes, but who cares when you have fighting, explosions, starships and lots of well made special-fx.

From the time of the first trailers and photos that where presented to the eager audience I was wondering how did such a young person became a captain of one of the largest starships of the Federation. Now I know. You have to know the right person to put you in the right place. Life is not fair. Kirk is the only person in every military history of any country in any galaxy who did not finish training and became a captain without been a Lieutenant or Commander or Lieutenant Commander whatever. So forget being a good and honest guy. Cheat your way to the top.

Also it is a known fact to Trekkies that Vulkans have a condition that is called Pon Far. According to that they feel uncontrollably horny and they need to mate, no questions asked. But in this movie Spock, who is the world’s most famous Vulkan, has a girlfriend. Poor Uhura! (Yes, that’s her!) You must be the worlds most patient (stupid) person in the world. It is a difficult decision to know, as a human, that you are going to have sex every seven years. Isn’t a relationship between a man and woman without sex called friendship?
