Fanboys Review: An easy way to measure how much you will or won’t enjoy “Fanboys” is how closely you fit to the titular category. The more of a Star Wars fan you are and the more your gender and maturity is on par with ‘boy,’ the more you’ll like this ode to Star Wars fans. The premise of Fanboys is excellent: In 1998, six months before the scheduled release of “Star Wars Episode I” a group of fanboy friends in their 20-somethings road trip to Skywalker Ranch to try and steal a rough cut of the movie because one of them has a terminal illness and won’t live to see the release. The execution, however, is spotty. The movie is a Star Wars-themed version of “Road Trip,” with the guys heading across America in a van and stopping along the way solely to buy some time before they get to the ranch.

Vantage Point Review: One crime, multiple vantage points. Sounds cool right? Yes. But “Vantage Point” never really pulls it off quite how it sets itself up to. The result is a cool action flick with some clever storytelling that sort of fizzles in the end. In “Vantage Point,” the President of the United States (William Hurt) arrives in Salamanca, Spain to give a speech on global terrorism efforts and ties with Spain to improve them. He gets shot and then a bomb goes off killing many people. We get this story through the eyes of a variety of characters and by the end of the film know exactly what happened. The cast is a solid mix of familiar and old faces. Dennis Quaid, Forest Whitaker, William Hurt, Matthew Fox and even Sigorney Weaver give Vantage Point the star power it requires. The terrorists are entirely new faces, which is no real surprise. Continue reading Vantage Point (2008 – Free Download) English 400 MB DVD-RIP

Batman: Year One Review: Before Batman: Named as one of IGN’s 25 greatest Batman stories of all time and one of the books that any Batman fan would swear by, Frank Miller’s 1987 classic Batman Year One finally comes to life as a full length animated movie. Besides inspiring elements in various Batman animated shows since the 1990s, Batman Year One is also the main inspiration for the blockbuster hit “Batman Begins”. So with its influence seen in all incarnations of Batman in the last 15 years, the producers are hard pressed to come up with anything original. So instead of just retelling Batman’s origins, drawing influence from Batman Year One, the creative team decided to stick as close as possible to the source material and literally transfer the book into animated form.

Astro Boy Review: Before Astro Boy was ever released in theatres, it used to be a television show that aired in Japan. And just like any other television show, sooner or later it turned into a movie. Thankfully, Astro Boy wasn’t filmed in live-action. Who knows how that could’ve turned out. What we do know from past experiences, is that live-action cartoon adaptations have high failure probability. This is not always true, but for the majority, it is. Astro Boy is the story of an ordinary child who is turned into a cybernetic organism from his science-whiz father. Freddie Highmore plays the character of Astro Boy and his voice doesn’t sound out of place so that’s a plus. Dr. Tenma is Astro Boy’s father and he is voiced by Nicolas Cage. It’s an interesting choice actually because it’s believable. But if listened to close enough, one can imagine Cage talking into the microphone.
