Megashare One for the Money (2012)

Megashare Red Lights (2012)
Psychologist Dr Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and her protégé physicist Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) debunk fake psychics and purveyors of fake ESP, poltergeist phenomena and the like. When renowned blind psychic Simon Silver comes out of retirement for a major high profile (and money spinning) series of theatrical events, Buckley wants to go for him, but Margaret is not so keen. The hook for this movie is whether or not Silver's psychic powers are genuine, or whether his simply another fake, and the audience is kept guessing (and kept guessing very well) for the length of the movie. But there are other good things here - the story never proceeds exactly as you expect it to, there are some very unexpected turns in the path taken, and you are kept engaged all the way through, with a satisfying ending. It must be said that once you think about it for 10 minutes afterwards, the whole thing falls to pieces, but that doesn't diminish the enjoyment you got from it while it was in progress. Weaver is good - probably as good as she has ever been - De Niro is solid, and Murphy is OK, albeit somewhat hamstrung by what the plot requires Buckley's character to be. Elizabeth Olsen and Toby Jones are both good in supporting roles. There is an unpleasantly violent sequence towards the end, which went beyond what I felt was necessary to achieve its purpose but, otherwise, I enjoyed the telling of this story.

Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro and Cillian Murphy

Megashare Stolen (2012)
Stolen follows a former thief frantically searching for his missing daughter, who has been kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a taxi, while trying to avoid FBI agents convinced he is lying and looking to find the money he stole 8 years prior. While the story seems like Taken it really isn't. Yeah there are similarities, but really no more than there is in tons of other action thrillers in this genre. The story here is more straight-forward and on a smaller scale, but still works fairly well. Cage delivers a bit more of a relaxed performance, but still manages to execute some of his over the top performance in there from time to time. Luckily it's usually when it is needed so doesn't distract too much from the overall film. The supporting cast is pretty good featuring Malin Ackerman, Mark Valley, Danny Huston, and Josh Lucas who seemed to take over with the over the top delivery here. While a bit silly at times, Lucas character still works decently. What really make this film work at all are the decent action and the clever robbery scenarios. It has become pretty rare to deliver something all that interesting in film bank jobs, but here they did some pretty creative stuff.
Director: Simon West
Cast: Nicolas Cage, Malin Akerman and Josh Lucas
Megashare The Campaign (2012)
"The Campaign" is a movie with non-stop laughs - so much that the theater fills to it's brim with a beaming storm of laughter. The jokes are original and, put quite accurately, hysterical. Chris Henchy's script is filled with unnecessary and pushy vulgarities as well as heavy sexual remarks that continue to bring our society down. However, the actual story is simple. And a simple story is no flaw to a movie. A simple story does not make a movie less entertaining. In this case, the sequence of events come so beautifully and easily that you as the viewer are not left struggling to keep up with what is going on. There is no fighting between the audience and the story in this film. Instead, they work together flawlessly. Despite the film's premise, you do not need know a single thing about politics to understand the film. The film, although about two candidates struggling to become congressmen, really shows us what characters played by Will Ferrall and Zack Galifanakis will do to win. I'm sure you can only imagine what could happen. Between every laugh, the understandable story and original characters are able to teach us a lesson or two - perhaps about politics, or even the way we live our lives in general. It is a story about obedience, honestly, and doing what is truly right. Ferrall, Galifanakis, Sudeikis and McDermott sink beautifully into their roles. Even though the The Oscars rarely seem to take notice of comedies, Zack Galifanakis truly deserves an Oscar for the child-like man he becomes in this film. Overall, the film is hilarious. There are scenes in this movie that will definitely make you laugh. In some cases, they focus on the stupidity of these characters which gets conveyed so comedically powerfully that you become truly mesmerized. Other times, the level of intelligence at which these jokes are played at is remarkable. They are perfectly timed, both in regards to how they were edited in the movie, as well as at what point in time we are politically at this moment of time in history. Seeing the "behind the scenes" work of a campaign has just become a whole lot funnier. These opponents want to win, and through advertising, put each other down while doing so. Much of the movie is about retaliation - what the other person does in response to being criticized. And remember, this is Will Ferrall who is reacting to what Zack Galifanakis said about him on TV, so you can only imagine how extreme things can become.
Director: Jay Roach
Cast: Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis and Jason Sudeikis
Megashare To Rome With Love (2012)
To Rome with Love (2012) was written and directed by Woody Allen. In this movie Allen does for Rome what he has already done for New York and Paris--transformed the city into a magical kingdom where anything is possible. The film doesn't have one plot, it has four. It doesn't have one star, it has about a dozen. The four plots involve a young small-town Italian couple who arrive in Rome right after their marriage; a retired opera director (Allen) and his wife who come to Rome to join their daughter, who has fallen in love with a young Italian lawyer; a famous architect (Alec Baldwin) who interposes himself into the life of a young U.S. architecture student living in Rome; and an ordinary citizen (Roberto Benigni) who overnight inexplicably finds himself a major celebrity.

Megashare Rock of Ages (2012)
Set in 1987 Los Angeles, Drew and Sherrie are two young people chasing their dreams in the big city. When they meet, it's love at first sight, though their romance will face a series of challenges. User Review: ROCK OF AGES is a tremendous surprise! Well-scripted, spot-on casting, well-acted, the singing, choreography, choices by the actors for their characters, directing, editing, soundtrack. What is the best surprise is that Tom Cruise's voice is perfect for this; raw yet emotive. He nails his role, as do all of his co-actors. This film is a clear U.S. cultural experience in the musical genre like DIRTY DANCING, Saturday NIGHT FEVER, MAMA MIA, CHICAGO, DANCE WITH ME, GREASE, ET AL. See it in the theater. Without giving it away "Romeo and Juliet as one arc, then an amalgamation of Steve Perry's and others lives in rock n' roll as the second arc. And the male lead to Julianne Hough's character, Diego....You, Go, Diego! You have great pipes.
Director: Adam Shankman
Cast: Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta and Tom Cruise

Megashare The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011)
The Quileute and the Volturi close in on expecting parents Edward and Bella, whose unborn child poses different threats to the wolf pack and vampire coven. Review: It's hard to describe this movie in just 1,000 words but I'll try to keep it short. I'm a huge fan of the books, but I've been disappointed with the last two movies so my hopes weren't that high for this one. I shouldn't have worried. Breaking Dawn blew me away from the first scene. Stewart is finally acting, which is one of the biggest reasons why this movie is so much better than the others. She portrays Bella in a way that is so close to the book, and it's wonderful to see her and Pattinson playing lovers that are so, so, so in love. The fact that Bill Condon (director) gave the happy couple so much time to be just that, happy, makes you really believe in their love and it makes you understand why they can't live without each other. Such an important part (or THE most important thing I should say) but something that the previous directors have failed in showing. This movie takes you from a beautiful wedding, complete with the most hilarious toasts (Jessica and Charlie) wonderful music, stunning dresses and declarations of love that will touch everyone's hearts, to South America for a sexy, funny and exciting honeymoon where we see heartfelt smiles, kissing, cuddling and teasing along with the epic headboard breaking scene. It then settles back in Forks, where we get to witness the most terrifying pregnancy imaginable. The special effects team deserve an Oscar for the work they've done on making Stewart look like she's slowly fading away. The moments leading up to the birth scene are actually scarier than the scene itself. It really is a horror film towards the end, and some scenes should maybe have been rated R. It ends in the perfect place, such a natural and obvious cut. I am so thankful that Breaking Dawn has been split into two parts, because I can't imagine even once scene in this part that could have been skipped. Condon is a genius.

Megashare Magic Mike (2012)
Mike, an experienced stripper, takes a younger performer called The Kid under his wing and schools him in the arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. User Review: If your a girl and you don't think this movie was a 10 out of 10, your crazy. Like sorry straight men, but your opinion doesn't really count especially because this movie was made for girls? Well anyways, not only was this movie funny, but you seen a lot of beautiful built men stripping. You can't go wrong with this movie. I will see it again very soon, and I will be buying this on DVD as soon as it comes out. It was worth waiting in line for an hour and a half, and jumping from theater to theater because it sold out everywhere. It was actually worth it in the first 3 minutes when you see Matthew talk and Channings ass. Go see it, you won't be disappointed.

Megashare Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (2010)
Voldemort's power is growing stronger. He now has control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione decide to finish Dumbledore's work and find the rest of the Horcruxes to defeat the Dark Lord. But little hope remains for the Trio, and the rest of the Wizarding World, so everything they do must go as planned. After having seen HP6, I honestly didn't have great expectations in this one. I guessed it would be darker and scarier, as every HP movie has been darker and scarier than its predecessor. But HP6 was such a patchwork of scenes that didn't give you the feeling of a coherent work – I was afraid the even more complex story line of HP7 would make an even less coherent movie. However, I must say it was definitely a wise decision to split the 7th book into 2 movies. HP7 can take time to explain and introduce all the characters that are necessary to the plot. I love the way Voldemort and the Death Eaters are portrayed in this movie. They are no longer just anonymous caped figures. You can see them interacting with each other, discussing and well… being human. Well, I'm always a big fan of the blurring of these clearcut good/evil categories in Fantasy. As the book is split into 2 parts, all of a sudden, there's also time for little embellishments I hadn't realized I had missed in the earlier movies! For example, I loved the scene so much where the feather floated through the air when the fairy tale of the Three Brothers was being told. Also drawing style that was used during the story was really amazing. This HP movie was the first of all that finally gave me the same feeling as Lord of the Rings did: Boy, this is not just some guys slavishly adapting a book into a movie, but they're actually autonomous artists and they have ideas of their own! And I don't mean they changed the whole plot (I wouldn't like that)! But (mostly visually) they did more than just bring across what's in the book. This also expresses itself in the decision not to include the childish Harry Potter musical theme (at least I didn't hear it, correct me if I'm wrong) from the first movie that sounds like “Wow, everything's so magical here!” That tune was fine for the first movie, but as Harry got older and the movies got darker, it kind of felt like they had to force this theme into every movie several times even though it didn't really fit any more. Now the soundtrack, too, has finally grown up. And I loved it! Last but not least, the acting was brilliant! The tense atmosphere between Harry, Ron and Hermione really came across. Also with all the doppelganger scenes, you always still saw from their movements and behavior which character was which though they were in disguise in a different body. All in all, as the title says, this is a excellent grown-up movie and I can recommend it to everyone – except kids! If you have little kids, please don't take them. This movie has far too many scary scenes and little comic relief! Plus, the plot is quit complex including lots and lots of minor characters. It's really no longer a movie targeted at kids, even though it's still labeled Harry Potter.
