Movie Review: Drive

Drive is a movie about a stunt driver who works at a garage shop, but also works as an actual driver for criminals who helps them escape from a crime they have done. The Driver, Ryan Gosling, who really doesn’t have a name in the movie other than driver, eventually finds himself deeply connected to this one crime that involves his new neighbors who he has come to love. This happens because his neighbors, which consist of a wife, a kid, and a criminal husband, get into trouble because the ex-con husband owes debt to some sort of a mob, and since Driver cares a lot about that family, he put it upon himself to end all of it.

Most people that went were amazed at the wonderful performance of Emma Stone as Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan, Viola Davis as Aibileen Clark, and Octavia Spencer as Minny Jackson. The Help was an incredible experience that left many of the students breathless.

Movie Reviews: Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Nobody is prepared to witness the glory that is Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Now, this movie may not be the next Pulp Fiction or Requiem for a Dream but it definitely is entertaining.

I must say though, although seeing this movie may not give some a deeper understanding of life and what not, seeing apes go insane is fun. Really, really, really fun.

Movie Review: Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D Bonds Beyond Time

What started as a Japanese manga by author Kazuki Takahashi in 1996, soon became a world wide phenomenon in America by 2000 with the release of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime and card game to American audiences. It was an instant hit, with children glued to the screen to watch the show every Saturday Morning and flocking to the stores to buy packs and packs of the cards. I was one of these children, having been caught in the Yu-Gi-Oh! craze from the very beginning.

It all seems to have come full circle now as Yu-Gi-Oh! celebrates it’s 10’th anniversary with the American release of the new movie, Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time. Having spawned further installments after the original anime, Yu-Gi-Oh! has continued to entertain kids and adults alike for the past decade.
