Fast and Furious 6

Big Dumb Fun, As Usual
by Reymundo Salao

FURIOUS 6 seems to be the original title of the movie. As if its producers were too afraid to be teased that it was a corny transition from the title of the previous movie FAST FIVE.

Fast Five had put the Fast and Furious franchise out into the ranks of mainstream Hollywood blockbuster. And it was indeed a tough act to follow. The series had built up all these characters which, by the last one, we already grew to love. Furious 6's great potential is that it maintains the positive energy out of its main characters. We love their screen presence and how they interact with each other.[read the rest of the article after the jump]

Star Trek Into Darkness

[A Spoiler Review]
by Reymundo Salao

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS is the follow-up to the 2009 reboot/restart (and at the same time brilliantly serving as a sequel to the original series), making it the second movie of this generation's Star Trek. Because the 2009 movie was such a magnificent piece of work, it just makes sense that there are certain expectations that should, in one way or another, be satisfied. With that being said, Star Trek Into Darkness delivers with just enough satisfaction to please the mainstream audience. It was fun, explosive, and spectacular. Personally, I (and a whole lot of people who have watched it) really found it enjoyable. But I cannot deny that it is a very flawed movie.

This is a spoiler-heavy review; I will be revealing several plot elements for this movie. If you do not want to be spoiled, read this article only you have already seen the movie.[read the rest of the article after the jump]
