Fairly Fun Films This Week!

June 25, 2010 at 11:56 PM (Uncategorized)


Ehh.  It was alright, I guess.  No.  I take that back.  I did really enjoy the first movie!  I had heard mixed reviews about it over the past week, and I was uncertain as to whether or not I would like what I saw.  Yet, I did see it for myself, forming my own opinion that is positive!

Knight and Day actually was a decent film to watch.  It begins with June Havens (Cameron Diaz)having seemingly accidental encounters with Roy Miller (Tom Cruise) during her daily activities.  When Havens arrives at an airport to catch a return flight to Kansas City, she is told that she will have to catch a later-flying plane.  Yet, undercover agent Fitzgerald (Peter Scarsgaard) is holding an assignment at that airport.  He has Havens situated to catch her initial flight.

A situation occurs aboard the airplane where Miller is assaulted by passengers while Havens has gone to the restroom.  During this time, the fight escalates, and Miller kills everyone on the plane.  Havens returns, not grasping why everyone has disappeared until Miller takes her into the cockpit and shows her the dead pilots!  He manages to maneuver the airplane enough to crash-land it safely within a corn field.

Miller drugs Haven, and he takes her home.  He warns Havens that she is being watched, and that she may be in danger of being killed.  He accompanies Havens throughout the day, working with her and her family for the arrangements of her sister’s wedding.  She suddenly is taken by government agents,  with an armed Miller chasing behind her!

Havens, after being saved by Miller, still believes that she is experiencing some elaborate hoax.  She gets in contact with an ex-boyfriend whom stays with her until Miller gets hold of her, again.  They proceed to find a man named Simon who created a poweful energy device called Zephyr.  Upon reaching Simon’s home, they are ambushed, and Havens is drugged, again.

Miller takes her to a secret island hideaway.  There, she receives a cell phone call from her sister, which reveals her location to the agents whom are after her.  They wind up escaping, and heading to The Alps, where Miller receives a coded message.  This leads him to Spain, where he has to meet with other agents in attempts to sell Zephyr.  Havens has been in contact with The CIA, and Miller has Zephyr with him.  He winds up being chased by CIA agents who shoot him!

Havens winds up finding Miller’s parents, then she meets with them.  They are rich and famous after having been the arranged winners of a lottery.  The parents believe that their son had been killed in military action.  After speaking with the parents, Havens is caught, then taken to Spain by corrupt agents who know that she has Zephyr.

As Havens is taken to Spain by Miller he gets into a gun fight.  Miller winds up losing Zephyr, yet it is revealed that the device has become unstable.  It explodes, killing Agent Fitzgerald, while Agent Miller is shot. 

Miller wakes up to find himself in a hospital.  Havens arrives, disguised as a nurse, and she breaks Miller out.  They embrace, he asks her what day it is, and she tells him that it is “someday”!

We entered into Grown Ups, second!  The story surrounds five former friends whom had a strong bond during high school.  It is thirty years after their graduation, and they have gathered to commemorate the occasion.  They get together at a lake house during The Fourth of July weekend!

This lake house is where they celebrated a high school basketball championship, of which they were a part during those years of their lives.  It is at this house where they all mourn the passing of their high school basketball coach. 

During their time of recreation, Eric (Kevin James), Kurt (Chris Rock), Lenny (Adam Sandler), Marcus (David Spade), and Rob(Rob Schneider), bond in remembrance of their high school days.  The time together has the friends realizing that much time has passed, and some of them are not ready to let go of days past.  However, current events, and interactions with females that included Deanne (Maya Rudolph), Roxanne (Salma Hayek-Pinault), and Sally (Maria Bello), lead the group of guys to realize that they have to change with the times!

 

 Those trailers for Predators are looking really exciting!  Other movies heading to theaters include Dinner For SchmucksInception, Lottery TicketSalt, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and TakersMovies, movies!!!
