Flash Gordon

*This may contain spoilers*
Rating: PG
Staring: Sam J. Jones and Ornella Muti
Released: 5th of December, 1980.
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Thriller.

My review,
This movie just really makes me laugh. I can't listen to Queen without thinking of this movie. To put it shortly, it's ridiculous. It's what you'd expect of a 1980 sci-fi movie. I'm not saying go out of your way to watch it... But if it's on, and you can bear it, it's pretty funny. When I say bear it, I say it in mind of not only what the movie is about, but mostly because of the acting, and the outfits, well, really, everything. The movie is funny, in a "You've got to be kidding me?" kind of way. There's no real way of explaining it, a way of putting into words  this movie. I would say, watch it once and never again.

To sum it up, it's pretty funny.

17 Again

*This may contain spoilers*

Rating: PG13 for "Language, some sexual material, and teen partying"
Staring: Zach Efron, and Matthew Perry
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Romance.
Released: 17th of April, 2009

My Review.
This movie shows a side that before we hadn't seen, when it came out many knew him as the guy from high school musical, and I don't know about you but that did not sound like someone I would want to see on anything else. But I think he really proved himself. He was funny, and charming, and played his part well. The movie had good timing, which really helps to make a comedy not just funny, but worth while. Some movie makers have a good story line, and lose it. But I think they played it well. It is one of those movies I'll watch again, and even buy, for a day where I just want something funny.

To sum it up, It's funny, and well timed.

The Music Never Stopped

*This may contain spoilers*

Rating: PG for "thematic elements, some mild drug references, language and smoking"
Staring: J.K. Simmons, and Lou Taylor Pucci
Genre: Drama
Released: 27th of October, 2011

My Review,
You know, I really enjoyed it. The music was wonderful, and the acting was great! The Music Never Stopped is a true story that grips the hearts of anyone who's struggling to understand their children-or children their parents. It takes the fact that every one interacts differently and intensifies it. In this film it's either communicate how they understand, or don't communicate at all. Lou Taylor Pucci is one to watch, and J.K. Simmons gave his usual fantastic performance. I think some could argue who was right in this movie, should they have stuck it out, or changed? But I think really the point of the film is not political or any sort of hidden agenda, but really I think it's about accepting each other, and loving each other, always.

To sum it up, I would recommend it to people who like Billy Elliot and Listen to Your Heart, and Juno.

Listen to Your Heart

*This may contain spoilers*

Rating: NR. (I would say PG-13, for intense scenes, mild language, and sexual content)
Staring: Kent Moran, and Alexia Rasmussen.
Genre: Drama, Music, Romance
Released: 2010

My review,
I really liked it. I really did. It won quite a few awards a different festivals. It was sad, and it was good. The acting wasn't the best I've ever seen, but the movie as a whole was wonderful. I thought Alexia Ramussen played her part beautifully, I feel like she was the perfect actor for the role, definitely someone to watch! It was written by one of the main characters in the movie, Kent Moran, I would love to have a look at that script, it was very well written. I felt like it gave you enough time, but not too much time on each point. I felt like it went through the usual drama-romance film routine early on, so it could focus on something else, some greater thing. Needless to say I cried through half the movie. I did a bit of searching, but I couldn't find any rating, but based on an average of films out now I would say it is a PG13 film, but on the lower side of that, more towards PG. It's a good watch, especially if you're looking for a good tear jerker.

To sum it up, I would certainly recommend it.
