Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is an all-new DC Universe Animated Original Movie that weaves six interlocking stories of the Green Lantern Corps’ rich mythology around preparations for an attack by an ancient enemy. As the battle approaches, Hal Jordan (voiced by Nathan Fillion, Castle) mentors new recruit Arisia (Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men) in the history of the Green Lantern Corps, telling tales of Avra (the first Green Lantern) and several of Hal’s comrades – including Abin Sur, Kilowog, Laira and Mogo. In the end, Arisia must rise to the occasion to help Hal, Sinestro and the entire Green Lantern Corps save the universe from the destructive forces of Krona. Penned by comic book luminaries Geoff Johns, Dave Gibbons, Peter J. Tomasi, Eddie Berganza, Alan Burnett, Todd Casey and Michael Green & Marc Guggenheim, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights will be distributed June 7 by Warner Home Video as part of the build up to the release of the highly anticipated live action film, Green Lantern, in theatres June 17.


This one was better. The Green Lantern Corps seems interesting, never watched or read anything about Green Lantern (except the life action movie).

Test pilot Hal Jordan finds himself recruited as the newest member of the intergalactic police force, The Green Lantern Corps.


Didn't expect a lot, didn't get a lot.
fuzzkins's rating:
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs pulls one flimflam too many, he is hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz, where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard - and just maybe into a better man as well.


I expected a lot from this movie. Unfortunately it was quite predictable and didn't match my memories of Oz completely. The effects were ugly and the actors weren't actually convincing. I think this movie is addressed to kids, but thatdoesn't bother me usually. In this case it did, though.

After watching their respective partners die, a cop and a hitman form an alliance in order to bring down their common enemy.


Not convincing at all. No twists, everything developed just as you'd expect.

On the hunt for a fabled treasure of gold, a band of warriors, assassins, and a rogue British soldier descend upon a village in feudal China, where a humble blacksmith looks to defend himself and his fellow villagers.


Felt like one of the trashy asian kung-fu films, but was actually quite entertaining.
fuzzkins's rating:
15 years after their traumatic gingerbread-house incident, siblings Hansel and Gretel have become a formidable team of bounty hunters who track and kill witches all over the world.


Cool movie. I like fairytale settings, didn't mind the splatter elements though I'm not a fan of it.
fuzzkins's rating:
With the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.


Funny movie, though the setting and story was quite serious. Unbelievable that mankind used to be so cruel.

Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.

Mei, a young girl whose memory holds a priceless numerical code, finds herself pursued by the Triads, the Russian mob, and corrupt NYC cops. Coming to her aid is an ex-cage fighter whose life was destroyed by the gangsters on Mei's trail.


Holy fuck... This movie was awesome. Love Jason.

Parker (2013)
When Parker turns down a job offer to pull off a jewel heist, he narrowly escapes with his life. He then teams up with a female real estate agent who is familiar with the local town and has nothing to lose to find the target of the heist so they can steal the loot for themselves. A thief with a unique code of professional ethics is double-crossed by his crew and left for dead. Assuming a new disguise and forming an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, he looks to hijack the score of the crew's latest heist.


Jason Statham, my favorite actor. Like all the other movies I watched starring him, I enjoyed this one pretty much. Nice action scenes, a decent but not too complicated story and a pretty girl. I'm not searching for more in action movies.

"Flight" tells the redemption story of Whip (Washington), a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a heroic feat of flying in a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people. While the world begs to embrace him as a true American Hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he is forced to hold up to the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behavior the night before the doomed flight.


Denzel Washington did a great job in this one (again). The story was very good and the atmosphere was awesome.

Dragon Eyes (2014)
Welcome to St. Jude, a town where rival gangs rule the streets, where the chief of police is a cold-blooded killer, and where citizens have learned to keep their heads down. Then comes out-of-towner Ryan Hong. His vintage car attracts attention. His unbelievable marital arts skills cause a sensation. Sensing a human weapon, the rival gangs bid for Hong’s allegiance. But Hong is committed to honoring an old promise to a mentor he met in prison: that he will "do good" wherever possible. With a lethal combination of street smarts and martial arts, Hong vows to lift St. Jude’s citizens out of fear... even if he must turn into a one-man army to do it.


The only good thing I can say about this movie is, that the fighting scenes were good. The story sucks, the actors do, too. Waste of time.

Sucker Punch (2011)
A young girl is institutionalized by her abusive stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the mental facility.

When the last angel falls, the fight for mankind begins. Having lost faith in the human race, a legion of angels descend to Earth to bring about the Apocalypse. Humanity’s only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert diner and the Archangel Michael himself.


Watched it with friends on TV. Wasn't that bad, but I didn't actually like it...

A younger and more reluctant Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, sets out on a "unexpected journey" to the Lonely Mountain with a spirited group of Dwarves to reclaim a their stolen mountain home from a dragon named Smaug.


Oh my god... I want to watch the second one right away... Epic!

When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs, and imaginations of children all over the world.


Watched this in cinema with my parents. Gorgeous effects and a beautiful story... A really great movie.

Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister's place for the latest match.


Well... The movie was okay, I just expected way more of this one cause it's been overhyped.

It's the weekend, and five students have weekend detention. There's a jock, a princess, a misfit, a nerd, and a lout. Not much in common, except for having to give up their day, sit in the school library, and write an essay for the principal. Being from such widely different backgrounds and having such completely different personalities, it's inevitable that some frictions and shenanigans develop. Especially when the principal leaves the room.


A must-watch for everybody. Just a wonderful movie about ordinary teenagers becoming friends during detention at school.

Pitch Perfect (2012)
Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.


Surprisingly entertaining. Singing was quite appealing but many embarassing and cliché-filled scenes. Plus, I really really dislike Anna Kendrick's face...

Jack Reacher (2012)
Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me. And sure enough, ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter-a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right-and soon the slam-dunk case explodes. Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning-and then beat him shot for shot.


Film was quite good. Awesome fighting scenes and a surprising plot which I didn't see that often as accustomed from action movies.

Project X (2012)
3 high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.


Cheap hangover copy? Maybe. I still enjoyed it since it was just sick.

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.


Well... As expected from a musical the plot was... rubbish. But the songs were simply awesome. I love Journey.
fuzzkins's rating:
Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up. Starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope-and the unforgettable friends that help us through life.


Just wow. The story was really good, this film deserves its IMDB rating. In my opinion, it was awesome. That's why I rated it with a 10. Maybe also because I love Emma Watson. Surprising twist in the end.

A video game villain wants to be a hero and sets out to fulfill his dream, but his quest brings havoc to the whole arcade where he lives.

End of Watch (2012)
Two young officers are marked for death after confiscating a small cache of money and firearms from the members of a notorious cartel, during a routine traffic stop.


Really good movie. Watched it with two friends of mine which thought it was good, too. I like the "cops in L.A." setting (reminded me of Southland) and the acting was good. Some scenes were quite funny.

The Bourne Identity is the story of a man whose wounded body is discovered by fisherman who nurse him back to health. He can remember nothing and begins to try to rebuild his memory based on clues such as the Swiss bank account, the number of which, is implanted in his hip. He soon realizes that he is being hunted and takes off with Marie on a search to find out who he is and why he is being hunted.


Awesome. Have to watch the sequels of Bourne. Matt Damon was quite good in this one.

The Campaign (2012)
In order to gain influence over their North Carolina district, two CEOs seize an opportunity to oust long-term congressman Cam Brady by putting up a rival candidate. Their man: naive Marty Huggins, director of the local Tourism Center.


Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferell. Pure awesomeness. The film was actually pretty funny, but I watched better ones. The three listed actors were a huge plus.

One night in Los Angeles, cab driver Max Durocher picks up a gray-suited man named Vincent. Vincent offers Max a large sum of money to drive him to five locations around LA before the night is up. Max accepts, but realizes that Vincent is a hitman who has been hired to kill five people that night. Max is forced to drive Vincent around the City of Angels, unsure if he'll live to see sunrise.


Interesting and original story. Really liked this one. I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise but again he did a good job.

Total Recall (2012)
A factory worker, Douglas Quaid, begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall - a company that provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led - goes wrong and he finds himself on the run.


My father recommended this one to me. I was not disappointed. Starting to really like those futuristic settings. Nice action scenes and decent story.

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He makes it his mission to eliminate them.


Well. This one was okay. Watched a lot of films I liked more. Colonial setting + vampires is a plus for me.
