KUNG FU PANDA – MOVIE REVIEW

KUNG FU PANDA

KUNG FU PANDA

It seems like these days a new computer animated film comes out every few months. Most of them just trying to make a quick buck from the kids, featuring voice talent from big celebrities, lacking in originality and an actual story. With Kung Fu Panda, that is not the case. This is a fantastic film filled with “Awesomeness”. Like its animated brothers it does feature a impressive cast but what makes it so great is Jack Black. He really put himself into this character and made it his own. I laughed A LOT, and when i wasn’t laughing i was as excited as a 12 year old boy seeing his favorite action movie. This film is beautiful. From the visual style at the beginning to the breathtaking landscapes of China, everything looks amazing. The fight scenes are entertaining and creative. All round this movie is really fun to watch and it wont matter how old you are. Kung Fu Panda will go down as one of my favorite animated movies of all time. I loved it. Skidoosh.

OVERALL RATING: 9.5/10

The Air I Breathe – Movie Review

The Air I Breathe

THE AIR I BREATHE
I finally got around to seeing this on DVD. Frist time i saw the trailer for it i was very intrigued with the concept. I was really hoping this would be a great movie and i must say it met my expectations. First of all the cast is really good, each character does the best they can with their role. Surprisingly Sarah Michelle Gellar does a decent job, probably her best work ever. Same goes with Brendan Fraser. I always found him as a bit of an over actor. But he plays this part so calm and cool that he proved himself that he can take on a serious role. But the real show stealer is Emile Hirsch. His small part was fun, effective, and probably the best part of the film. As for the actual plot, it has some good concepts and ideas but its not without it faults. Some parts of the stories seem unnecessary and drag out a little long. The end plays out very nicely. I think fans of movies that have intertwining stories, characters, and deeper meanings will enjoy it. Its worth checking out.

OVERALL RATING: 7.5/10

MAE / ANBERLIN (ACOUTSIC) REVIEW

SEATTLE WA
JUNE 1, 2008
NECTAR LOUNGE

———————

Anberlin (Acoustic)

Anberlin (Acoustic) – This was their first show they have done since December because they are working on their new album, and you could tell. Things felt rusty and slightly unorganized. Lyrics were forgotten many times and even a string busted on a guitar… and seeing as they had no guitar tech… they just kept going. Now normally this might sound like a half-assed show. But it was not. Being an acoustic show it allowed the band to do songs that they normally would have never done. Some of my favorites like The Haunting (which has never been preformed live) and Inevitable. They also played a brand new song never heard by anyone before called “Bittersweet Memory” . This is my 3rd time seeing Anberlin and this was a very unique concert going experience. I felt like i was watching something that only the select few would ever get the chance to see. For a die hard fan like myself. This was gold.

Mae – The Nectar Lounge would not be my first choice for a concert like this. there was a big sign above the door saying maximum capacity 360. And there must have been WAY more in the venue. Everything seemed pretty closed in and confined, but that made for an intimate atmosphere. This is my second time seeing Mae live and it looks as if they have perfected their stage performance. Adding constant head banging and little “moves” here and there. Also i didn’t realize until i saw them that a few of the members of the band are no longer with them. Mae seems like they are ready to take the next step and breakout a bit more. Sadly the set list was just ok. Nothing really blew me away. I could have used a few more songs from The Everglow album, but maybe i am biased cause its my favorite of theirs.

In the end it was worth the drive down to Seattle to catch two awesome bands together for this rare show.
