Rants and Raves: Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas

It's the same concept of a Cinépolis VIP in México. There's nothing new about it except for the price which is $22, compared to México's price which is around $12, it's kind of expensive.

It's a nice experience because waiters serve you snacks or food plates to your seat. The variety of plates it's not as complete as one would guess but it's okay... I don't think they want the whole theater stinking up the place. And the best part is that the seats are numbered so you don't have to wait it line hours before the movie starts.

For $12 dollars it is worth it, but for $22 I don't think people would go crazy for it. What would the price be for 3D?

Review: 'Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon'

The only two reasons I hate Summer are the heat and boring blockbusters.

Die-hard fans are taking this Transformers series too seriously. I don't know why they love a film that lacks logic, sense and good managing of CGI; I'm not even gonna bother mentioning the acting (God! Someone take them to Glee and teach them a lesson, considering that those kids have to act like they're having the time of their lives when they are more miserable than a kid without a Christmas gift).

I like this review because it's the only accurate one. Therefore, I agree with everything because I had to suffer too but I only saw the first film twice because the first time I fell asleep (good riddance) and the second time I went loaded with coffee thinking "I need to see what everyone is talking about"... oh, the mistakes we make in life.

Review: 'Scream 4'

I'm a fan of the Scream franchise and I've been from the first film released in 1996. I was 6-years-old and I don't know how my parents let me watch it.
Anyway, the first one was supposed to be a parody of slasher films. With the success they went on making a sequel and therefore it became a trilogy.
The whole point of the three movies was Sidney's mom because she was the town's slut and everyone got killed thanks to her. The first pair were pissed at Sidney's mom for separating his parents, the second killer was the mother of the first killer (I guess it's mocking Friday the 13th with a twist... first the son, then the mother) and the third killer I think was Sidney's brother from another father...

My point is that Scream 4 was different for the first time ever... it was all about Sidney and not her mother. Of course, she was mentioned like two times just to remind the fans that the woman was the cause for all the stabbing in the previous three films. I felt a relief when the movie ended because it felt good to see something else other than another remake in 3D. For being on hiatus ten years, it feels nice to see it come back with more jokes on other movies, our times where everyone wants to be famous for anything, and even better jokes on themselves.

And, about how every death is predictable... they gave it away in the trailers.
I like your review, though. I'm becoming a fan.

Review: 'Sucker Punch'

I thought Machete was a satire. Anyway, you have to give the guy some credit for trying to give life to a "new" idea rather than doing another remake or an adaptation of a book or a forgotten TV show. You can't blame him for allegedly stealing ideas from other movies because nothing is original in the film industry. I agree that The Matrix was a mind-blowing trilogy but you can't hide the fact that more than 70% of the plots were taken from different classics in the literary world that takes the central character through a world that only exists in the reader's imagination.

As I said before, "everyone is entitled to their own opinion". Some think that 300 was a masterpiece, some think that it was bad like Avatar. Let's hope Superman is what everyone expects.

Review: 'Sucker Punch'

This review is pretty harsh considering that it's his first movie... and I know he filmed other things but those were remakes and/or adaptations. I had to watch Sucker Punch even though I read your review, Beth, and I got to say it wasn't that bad. Of course it's a loud movie with girls fighting for their lives but, let's be honest, what cliché action movie hasn't done this before? It's a genre that everybody loves because it's BAD!

We love bad movies because we can laugh at them as many times as we want. As soon as we remember a scene we start giggling like a Japanese school girl (it's meant to be a pun on Sucker Punch... you know... Baby Doll's outfit).

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but it's still a little rude that you think he's bad as a director. The plot had minor holes but if you're smart enough and know what happened in the time the story takes place you can figure out what happened. Which, I feel the need to say this, but the cabaret world is the world of the older blonde girl.

People, just go and see the movie. It's bad but it's funny to look at.
