A film by James Gunn

Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone

This is going to be a dazzling action-packed sci-fi extravaganza. As I am going to try to write a dazzling review. Nothing is lost here it is still fun with some great music to go with it.

After a brief scene set in 1980 Missouri with a miraculously digitally young Kurt Russell, the action  battle in the adventurous spirit and risk-taking of the central characters. Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), makes a living as intergalactic bounty hunters. After a toe-tapping battle sequence featuring a giant Lovecraftian squid and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) dating to the Electric Light Orchestra’s Mr. Blue Sky, the team is forced to divide. There they Meet Ego (Kurt Russell) and will take them to his dazzling planet which Ego will provide any question that provide answers to Star-Lord’s questions. And there begins the extravaganza of beautiful scenery colourful as hell with jokes along the way with great tunes from the 80’s.Watch out for Sylvester Stallone in a cameo.

Visually stunning, the film is a blast: a joyous sci-fi fantasy filled with weird and wonderful characters, goofy humour and a plot that offers just the right blend of emotional je ne sais quoi. Someone has a lot of imagination here and that is a good thing. Vol. 3 please.

INFINITELY POLAR BEAR (2014)

Infinitely Polar Bear (2014)

A film by Maya Forbes

Cast: Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Imogene Wolodarsky

A manic-depressive Dad who is kind of a mess tries to win back his wife by taking care of the kids while she is in New York to finish her education.

Here is a colorful light comedy where Mark Ruffalo does quiet an outstanding job at playing a manic-depressive dad who is having a little tough time to take care of his daughter and finds out it is not what it crack up to be to top it all off he suppose to take is medication but choose not too. The wonderful part of this film is the interaction of the 2 kids and the dad as the roles reversal at the end of the film. Life can be a bit of a roller coaster here plus at times the apartment is turn into a junk yard nothing is throw out or given away. Cameron (Mark Ruffalo) was incarcerated in the 70’s for a while because his condition was not improving although back then they didn’t know how to deal with it nor that the drugs back then were working. Like I said it is a light-hearted comedy that works here just fine.
