Wreck-It Ralph (Random Images)

Wreck-It Ralph: My name's Ralph, and I'm a bad guy. Uh, let's see... I'm nine feet tall, I weigh six hundred and forty three pounds, got a bit of a temper on me. My passion level's very near the surface, I guess, not gonna lie. Anyhoo, what else, uh... I'm a wrecker. I wreck things, professionally. I mean, I'm very good at what I do. Probably the best I know. Thing is, fixing's the name of the game. Literally. Fix-It Felix Jr. So yeah, naturally, the guy with the name Fix-It Felix is the good guy. He's nice enough as good guys go. Definitely fixes stuff really well. But, uh, if you got a magic hammer from your father, how hard can it be? If he was a regular contractor, carpenter guy, I guarantee you, you will not be able to fix the damage that I do as quickly. When Felix does a good job, he gets a medal. But, are there medals for wrecking stuff really well? To that, I say, ha! And no, there aren't. For thirty years I have been doing this, and I have seen a lot of other games come and go, how sad. Think about those guys at Asteroids? Boom, gone. Centipede? Who knows where that guy is, you know? Look, a steady arcade gig is nothing to sneeze at, I'm very lucky. It's just, I gotta say, it becomes kinda hard to love your job... when no one else seems to like you for doing it.

Saving Private Ryan (Random Images)

Gen. George C. Marshall: I have a letter here, written a long time ago, to a Mrs. Bixby in Boston. So bear with me. "Dear Madam: I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, Abraham Lincoln."

Man of Steel: The Re(al) - view

Clark Kent: My father believed that if the world found out who I really was, they'd reject me... out of fear. He was convinced that the world wasn't ready. What do you think?
Man of Steel is not your typical comic-movie, rather it's a powerful emotional driven story about a young man's journey to find himself (it sounds cheesy, but no other words come to mind) in a world that cannot and will not accept that his kind truly exists, till the fate of that very world lies in his hands; mixed in are amazing abilities and really cool fight scenes.

James Gandolfini: A Tribute

Fast & Furious 6: The Re(al) - view

Luke Hobbs: When you invite me to your house, you become the guest
It's bigger, louder and just a little (actually, a smidgen) better that Fast Five; why? Well, The Rock is no longer hunting them. period! But, its definitely a fun experience.

Fast 6 (as I would refer to it), has got awesome action sequences, wicked stunts with cars, a tank and a plane, ridiculous humour courtesy of Tyrese, and an okay script. "An okay script" in the Fast & Furious franchise is gold, as their movies are more action centric - always about the race car culture with little reference to a solid story line, but something happened with Fast Five, a transition with the plot that changed the course of the franchise, and this change reflected in Fast 6, this time and for the second time in the entirety of the franchise - they are on good terms with the law; and that's a big problem, you see in Fast Five, there was a nearly non-existent bad guy in Hernan Reyes, but there was a twist - a hunter was also in play - Luke Hobbs (The Rock), so we had the team going against a guy who had the entire police force in Rio in his pocket and a hunter that's quite determined to catch his prey, even if he beats the (bleep) out of 'em.

Governor Tarkin: If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape.
Darth Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone.

Star Trek Into Darkness: The Re(al) - view

James T. Kirk: Why would Starfleet ask a three-hundred year-old frozen man for help? 
Khan: Because I am better. 
James T. Kirk: At what? 
Khan: Everything. Alexander Marcus needed to respond to an uncivilized threat in a civilized time, and for that, he needed a warrior's mind - my mind - to design weapons and warships. 
Spock: You are suggesting the Admiral violated every regulation he vowed to uphold, simply because he wanted to exploit your intellect... 
Khan: He wanted to exploit my savagery! Intellect alone is useless in a fight, Mr. Spock. You can't even break a rule, how can you be expected to break a bone?
Before the heap of praise begins, I must confess that Star Trek Into Darkness is not on par with its predecessor, Star Trek, but that is not a bad thing at all. This was one fun, amazing and action packed Sci Fi experience with the twists placed at the right spots (unlike this HUGE disappointment).

Like Crazy: The Re(al) - view

Anna: I thought I understood it, that I could grasp it, but I didn't, not really. Only the smudgeness of it; the pink-slippered, all-containered, semi-precious eagerness of it. I didn't realize it would sometimes be more than whole, that the wholeness was a rather luxurious idea. Because it's the halves that halve you in half. I didn't know, don't know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me.
Before I begin this review there are two things I would like you to understand about Like Crazy; first, the budget for this 'beauty' was $250,000 and, second, (and quite unbelievable) it was shot with a Canon EOS 7D DSLR camera. The entire film!

United: The Re(al) - view

Alma George: Manchester United must go on.
I'll tell you the singular reason why I love this film - Manchester United!

But United is much more than that, it's a powerful sports drama, with much emphasis on the emotion that surrounds the sport. This is a film that is based on the 1958 Munich plane crash that claimed 23 lives, 8 of which were members of the Manchester United Football Team (aka The Busby Babes) and 3 of the club's staff; the film focused on Assistant Manager Jimmy Murphy (brilliantly portrayed by David Tennant) and Bobby Charlton's (portrayed by Jack O'Connell) personal experience before/on/after this terrible event.

Basil: A surgeon to be exact. Just returned from military duty in Afghanistan. Am I right?
Dr. Dawson: Why, ha, ha, yes. Major David Q. Dawson. But how could you possibly...?
Basil: Quite simple, really. You've sewn your torn cuff together with a Lambert stich, which, of course, only a surgeon uses. And the thread is a unique form of cat-gut, easily distinguished by its peculiar pungency, found only in the Afghan provinces.
Dr. Dawson: Amazing!
