R.I.P.D. is D.O.A.


RIPD is DOA, dead on arrival at the box office. From the cliché jokes to the predictable story line the only good thing about this film is the eye candy, Ryan Reynolds and snippets of Marissa Miller.

From the first 5 minutes of the film you could see what was going to happen and how the movie would end and the movie delivered on that…no surprises.

I guess this is another movie based on a comic book. Now I am not a comic book expert, I know a few unfortunately this was not one of them so I couldn’t weigh in on the similarity between movie and comic book but if the movie was any indication I won’t be finding this comic book.

My opinion wait until you are channel surfing and this movie happens to be on. It’s not worth the energy to go to the redbox and it’s not worth your money to rent it and stream.

Are you seeing Red Too?


Red 2 coming in 5th opening weekend as the Conjuring conjured up the first spot. Wow that was a cheesy line but it was true. Honestly, did anyone expect Red 2 to make a big splash? 

Horror is not my thing and I wasn’t in the mood for cartoons so that left me with Red 2. Not a bad choice with an all-star cast Bruce Willis, Mary Louis-Parker, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and John Malkovich.  With that all star cast how can this not be killing it at the box office? Well there are all those other big movies out now…and I think its because everyone already knew what to expect. Same concept of older bad ass spies. While that is exciting the story line is what it is. Or do you think I’m being to harsh? www.yourmediaworld.com


 Malkovich stole the movie he was hilarious from scene one. Not only his crazy outfits but some of the stuff from his mouth made you laugh out loud not just an LOL. And the action was there…to a point where there were just toooo many unbelievable action scenes.


But the question is does this rank high enough in the summer box office for your $20 at the movies. Probably not. I say wait until it hits the Redbox.  That’s my opinion share yours and find new movies books or games at www.yourmediaworld.com

Must See World War Z


I don’t think I need to start this off with a catchy one liner to get you to read this the title says it all. I just went to see World War Z not because I am a zombie fan but because I need to so I can write about it. I am glad I did. The movie is edge of your seat entertaining without the gory horror factor you would expect from a zombie movie. And even though this movie has been out @ week there was still clapping in the theater at the end of the movie unlike some movies, "The Lone Ranger", that I have seen opening night. This movie delivers the hype of summer blockbuster. Entertaining beginning to end. 

While this is not an all-star cast, in fact the only known star is Brad Pitt; well known to me anyways maybe you are some super Hollywood braniac and know all actors. Pitt does a great job of carrying this movie and his supporting cast while most of it fluctuates due to the fact that this is a zombie movie is great. Like other Brad Pitt movies or movies from the supporting cast? Share them on www.yourmediaworld.com.

I think the best part of this movie is the resolution to the war which is not really a resolution just a temporary solution. While true this might leave room for a sequel I doubt Brad Pitt is the type to do it. He has done them in the past when you look at all the Ocean movies but this is different and the timeframe in his career is different so I don’t think there will be a World War Z II but Hollywood might be greedy enough and do it with or without Pitt. This is just my opinion share yours at www.yourmediaworld.com.

Leave The Lone Ranger Alone


Johnny Depp’s Tonto wears a dead crow on his head and that is the perfect metaphor for this movie... That was 149 minutes of my life I am not going to get back. I saw this opening night and I expected to hear laughter and maybe some applause but all I heard was crickets and popcorn.

“The Lone Ranger” stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer but I don’t know why Armie Hammer bothered to show up I don’t think he delivered. Depp was his usual aloof, weird yet strangely entertaining self however; this part is especially strange for him.   Helena Bonham Carter also makes a small guest appearance and adds a good spark of color that was lacking but not enough to save the movie. Depp and Carter have done lots of successful movies together and Depp’s character always kills Carter’s, perhaps if killed her this time it might have helped save the movie…but I doubt it.

The movie was flat. Same physical comedy scenes we have seen repeatedly in multiple movies. Typical love triangle, good guy is a bad guy, and justice in the end. The story line was not developed well and took too long to resolve; by the time it got to the climax I wanted it to be over.  If you must watch this because you are compelled to see every Depp movie I say wait until you can stream it for free. But that’s just my opinion go to www.yourmediaworld.com and share yours.

While this is a comedy and a Disney movie it’s still a Western and the amount of violence in the movie leads me to think twice about the PG-13 rating for any kids in my family.  This movie takes you back to the time of Cowboys and Indians and there is some of that racist fear and slaughtering of Native Americans. All these things lead me to think maybe it’s only PG-13 because Disney’s name is on it?? What do you think it should be rated? Go to www.yourmediaworld.com and share your ratings.
