My Rating : 2.5/5 STAR
MovieStudio Quote >> “Never expect for more. H2 is slow, more violent and vulgar. There is no element of surprise at all.”

In The Hangover Part II, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

My Rating : 3/5 STAR
MovieStudio Quote >>
“The SFX is three times the first part, but the story fell low, real flat. There is too much action, and we lose control of the story/plot.”

The interstellar war between the Autobots and Decepticons shifts into overdrive following the discovery of Sentinel Prime (voice of Leonard Nimoy) in this sequel from director Michael Bay.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Only a precious handful of officials in the government and military realize that the 1969 moon mission was the result of an event that threatened profound repercussions for the entire human race. When the Apollo 11 astronauts discover the wrecked remains of Sentinel Prime on the surface of our natural satellite, they bring him back to planet Earth.

But Sentinel Prime wasn’t the only alien object on the moon, and when a malevolent new enemy makes its presence known, only the Autobots can save humankind from certain destruction.

TrollHunter (2011)

My Rating : 2.5/5 STAR
MovieStudio Quote >>
“The SFX in the end was enormous and realistic, overall it’s a strange thriller. Trolls exist?!”

Shot in a vérité style, TrollHunter is the story of a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy.

TrollHunter

A thrilling and wildly entertaining film, TrollHunter delivers truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.”
