What’s going on Filmophiles?
YIPPEE KI YAY MOTHER RUSSIA!!! Did everyone go and see DIE HARD yesterday? Woohoo! That’s the next review for sure!
This week we’re taking a look at a few amazing movies that pull your heart strings and make you go pitter patter. So to all the guys out there, these are the movies you should have watched with your sweethearts yesterday, or this weekend.
Crank2: High Voltage (2009) Yes, if Crank wasn’t enough of an adrenalin rush for you, we have Crank 2. Chelios is back! Yes, because when you’re Chev Chelios (Jason Statham), falling out of an airplane to your death doesn’t kill you! (see Crank for details) This time a Chinese mobster has stolen Chelios’ heart and he has to keep zapping himself with electricity in order to stay alive and keep his electric heart alive. It has a bad battery. I don’t write the movie scripts, just the reviews! Definitely 96 minutes of sheer heart-pounding energy for you and your loved one on Valentine’s Day. “Honey, you stole my heart like Chinese mobster!”
Indianna Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) OK, so it’s a classic from the 80’s but when Short Round tells Indianna “No time for love Dr. Jones” I get goose bumps. The action packed follow-up to Raider’s takes us to India and an ancient village that is ruined by the loss of a magical stone and all their children. Dr. Jones, Willie, and Short Round find themselves guests of the young Maharaja, in his temple…yes of doom. Please try and keep up. There won’t be a summary at the end as I only have limited space. The film takes you into the pit where Mola Ram reaches into the chest of his prisoner and pulls out his still beating heart. Kalima! Of course it has a happy ending, and Indy gets the girl. “Honey you took hold of my heart just like Mola Ram!” I hope you’re writing these down. These are pure gold!
Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Man’s Chest (2006) and At World’s End (2007). Come on! What woman wouldn’t want to sit down for 5 hours and watch Orlando Bloom running around with his shirt off, and then on but open, and then soaking wet…that’s true love men. In the first part Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) must try and recover the broken compass, that will lead Lord Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander) to the still beating heart of Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), so he can control the sea. We also learn of a love story between Davy Jones and Calipso, goddess of the sea. Then their Elizabeth Swan’s (Keira Knightley) love for Will, and Cpt. Jack Sparrow’s (Johnny Depp) love for…well for rum! Savvy? By the end of the second movie you learn how much Will really loves Elizabeth. And keep watching to the end of the credits, cause there’s a surprise at the end! “Honey I would cut my one heart out for you, I love you so much”
So there you have it! This Valentine’s Day Weekend (or next year) put on one of these movies, pop a big bowl of popcorn and you’re sure to be in her good books. Or just buy some flowers!
