Movie Thoughts 9-2-2013

The Grandmaster is good.  It is not as action packed as either of Donnie Yen’s Ip Man movies.  It looks amazing on the big screen.  Tony Leung stars as Ip Man. If you haven’t seen any other Ip Man movie, I think you could enjoy this one.  (Even if you have seen another Ip Man, you can enjoy this one.)  One critic compared the movie to the House of Flying Daggers and I think that is a good comparison.

This is an interesting week for Vin Diesel.  His new movie Riddick opens Friday and it will be interesting to see if the fans of Fast and the Furious franchise will go to the movie. This is his non Fast movie since 2008’s Babylon A.D., which was a minor success at best.  Previews have looked decent.  RIddick is a revival of a franchise that laid dormant for about 9 years.  I am not sure if I want to see it.

The Dinobots are confirmed for the fourth Transformers movie.  I don’t think that increases my desire to see the movie.

Bryan Cranston has shot down rumor of his being Lex Luther.  I guess it is time for new rumors.
