Movie Review- Rentals


Three movies not on the big screen anymore, but are must sees are:  The American Sniper (2015), The Great Gatsby (2013), and Money Train (1995).  I recommend these movies, because I feel they don’t receive the credit they truly deserve. Each of these movies have a different genre from the other, The American Sniper is a patriotic film, The Great Gatsby is about true love and corruption, and The Money Train is a movie that is funny and has lots of action. These movies cannot be found on Netflix, but they may be purchased on Amazon Prime or can be rented. I guarantee that the viewer won’t be dissatisfied.

Movie Review: The Great Gatsby (2013)

This was definitely my most anticipated movie of the year when it came out. After seeing a couple of critics ratings for this movie, I became disheartened.  I am glad to say that The Great Gatsby lived up to my initial expectations. The movie is very beautiful, because of its costumes, the sets, and the cinematography is perfect. The film’s director Baz Luhrmann brought the Roaring Twenties back to life. The music that played during the scenes truly captures the essence of the characters/actors in the movie. The movie feels as if its in two different dimensions, old fashioned and modern day. Gatsby is 99.99% faithful to the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Leonardo Dicaprio’s performance wasn’t his best, but he was indeed astounding. This also goes for Tobey Maguire. He did an amazing job.  He fit the “Nick persona” 100%. This movie is a good rendition of a great American novel.

Movie Review: American Sniper (2015)

This movie is outstanding. This is perhaps Clint Eastwood’s best directing effort. Actor Bradley Coopers performance is gripping and authentic. Bradley Cooper played the role of Chris Kyle, a U.S Navy Seal who’s sole mission is to protect his comrades. Chris Kyle’s pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. This was indeed captured in Bradley Coopers performance. As a brother of a U.S Navy Corpsman, he says that this movie is 100% accurate and shows the true action that happens behind enemy lines. This movie was shot incredibly , the story was well put together, and this movie is most definitely recommended. Don’t expect a dry eye at the end of this one.

Movie Review: Money Train (1995)

This movie is an action-packed comedy. Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson buddy up on the money train. They are foster brothers working as undercover policemen for the NYPD Subway system. After an early confrontation with their evil transit authority boss named, Patterson, they’ve become vengeful and plot to steal his all important money train. This movie was well put together and is very funny. Overall, this movie is fantastic and great for a rainy day.
