DELIVER US FROM EVIL: MOVIE REVIEW






DELIVER US FROM EVIL MOVIE REVIEW

 Does evil exist? Not just any kind of evil, but a true evil that can possess a human soul? That is the question facing Officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) in the movie DELIVER US FROM EVIL. Officer Sarchie has little faith in all that is holy and no belief whatsoever in what’s considered unholy. Officer Sarchie blames crime on human nature.  It’s obvious from the beginning just how mind numbing dealing with crime in New York has affected the officer.  But that all begins to change when Ralph is faced with the malicious actions of seemingly once normal people who’ve appeared to have come under some kind of demonic possession. Officer Sarchie and his family become targets of supernatural forces.  It will take brawn, faith and the help of an exorcism priest to fight the evil in their midst. 

DELIVER US FROM EVIL is based on true events in Officer Sarchie’s life. A scary thought indeed.  One only has to pick up the paper or watch the news to see evil pop up its ugly head. But is it human nature or something more darker?

DELIVER US FROM EVIL is an intense movie that runs on a pretty good clip.  There is a familiar feel to the story as Hollywood has created similar gory scenes before. However, there are a few scares in the mix. If anything, it wasn't boring.

An interesting note: Today Officer Sarchie is now a well-known demonologist believing in his cause.

GOZILLA MOVIE REVIEW



REVIEW
 

 

Friend or foe of man? That is the question in the new 2014 GODZILLA movie and has been since the start of the Gozilla’s film legacy that began in 1954 with the first original version of Gozilla.

 After laying dormant for many years, Gozilla rises from the ocean’s depths to face down two menacing creatures that are wreaking havoc and destruction on mankind as they feed upon nuclear energy in alarming rates. The main battle takes place in Hawaii as the trio clash in a battle that trashes and destroys anything in its wake. And the US military is right there along the battle front to lend a hand as well as use whatever means necessary to destroy all three creatures. No one seems quite sure of Gozilla’s intentions, although it’s clearly hoped that Gozilla will kill his adversaries.

Although a bit clumsy and seemingly emotionless, Gozilla has one and only one motive – to kill the nuclear sucking pair of creatures along with their unborn offspring and restore the earth to its former balance.  As a large reptilian looking dinosaur with a lumbering gait, Gozilla cares little for the destruction this battle inflicts on property or mankind, although there is one point in the movie when he seemingly makes eye contact with a soldier bent on the same mission – as if giving his approval to a team member.

Kids and adults can both enjoy this newest Godzilla movie. This sea monster always manages to impress when he opens up his mouth and bellows out his rage in a cry that clearly means he means business. And I for one have been reminded of my childhood on a rainy Saturday afternoon when I watched many of the old Gozilla movies at my parent’s home on a small television set. But now I have to wonder if I watched Godzilla to see the huge giant in action or just to have a laugh at the English words that passed out of Japanese mouths in a funny disconnection.

Whatever the reason, I was drawn to see this movie and connect with an old friend.

Noah: Movie Review






NOAH MOVIE REVIEW

 

Noah. A man of God. A man of faith. A man that was given a great task. That was the true Bible Noah. But in the movie version, Noah I found God and faith both lacking, however it was clear that Noah was given a great task to build an ark - but not to save mankind but to save all the birds and beasts from extinction.

With that said, in the movie, Noah was dark and at times bitter with his God. He fights with his wife and his children. He seems to have lost his humanity towards other living beings and with it all compassion. Noah has decided mankind will die out with his family and no other children can be born. However, this was not the bible’s version of the story, but the creators of the movie.

Although this version of Noah is clearly Hollywood invented, it was very entertaining and did make me think about the true story of Noah. The bible is filled with wonderful and murky tales of the Israelites. Perhaps this will lead to a movie trend into unmarked territory or people taking a closer look at scripture. All in all, I was glad to see Noah and would recommend it whether you believe in the bible's tale or not.

FAR AND AWAY








With Saint Patrick's day on the horizon, why not check out the movie Far and Away with Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. Although initially this movie was lacking great reviews, it is one of my favorite movies. Naturally if you are of Irish decent, this movie would appeal to you. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman are two opposing forces, an Irish couple coming to America for the American dream of owning land. Things get interesting as the two battle weary hotheads find themselves falling in love as they struggle to survive. 

 Check it out.

AMERICAN HUSTLE: Movie Review

       AMERICAN HUSTLE REVIEW: By Tammy's Tattles



 


 

 
Rip-off artist Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his sexy conspirator, Sydney (Amy Adams) team up to con people out of their money, having little mercy on those who they dupe. But things heat up when FBI agent, Richie DiMaso, (Bradley Cooper) comes on the scene, ready to take action and bring down the thieves. Instead slick Richie wants to make a name for himself in the FBI and aims to get the wayward couple to hustle undercover and play a dangerous powerful scam with New Jersey politicians as well as the Mob. Events don’t run as smoothly as Richie would like however, when he falls for the sexy Sydney and has to deal with the fact that she is Irving’s mistress.  And added to the mix is Irving’s wife, Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) who plays a game of her own. As things heat up, one will be guessing just who is playing who? It’s hard to wonder who to root for.

The first half hour of this movie was dull and at first I wondered if we had wasted our time and money. But then Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) came on the scene and things got a whole lot more interesting. This crime drama had a funny flair all of its own and I found Richie DiMaso hilarious. Shockingly, Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) did a good job of appearing as an overweight underachiever. But all in all, this cast of interesting and well known characters did their part to bring this film together and made me glad at the end that I shared a couple of hours with them.
