Geostorm (2017) **REVIEW**

Weather movies.. love them or hate them, Hollywood have spewed out quite a few of them over the years and  this one no different but with one little small difference. When I first heard about “Geostorm” I thougth ‘FFS, can’t they make anything original anymore? Another weather disaster movie coming’ and oh boy was I right.


We got a scientist played by Gerard Butler, Jake Lawson. He and 600 other scientists invented something that could stop disastrous weather. Cool. Awesome. But.. someone managed to hack it and now it’s attacking earth. They placed it in space. And you know that is never a good idea.

Jake and his brother Max, who also works with this program, is now working together trying to figure out who hacked the space thing that is now attacking earth and killing millions of people with weird weathers. Jake is up in space and his brother is on earth. It all end up with Max kidnapping the president to get kill codes for the space ship(!?) so they can stop the weather to attack.

I have to say.. ‘Geostorm’. Not the greatest film I’ve seen. Sure it got some really cool effects when it comes to the weather but that’s about it. Movie itself is a bit cringe. Would I recommend it? Uhm.. no I wouldn’t. If you want to see a movie with cool effects yeah sure, see it. But here is 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back. I have to say I got a little disappointed. But there’s been so much weather disaster movies in the past that not every single one will hold up.

Family/Animated Week: How To train Your Dragon 2 (2014) **REVIEW**

Hiccup and Toothless are back in a second film. In the second film is 5 years later and everything is different in the village. Astrid and Hiccups are engaged, Hiccups and Toothless are closer than ever. Even though Jiccups lost his leg in the first film he made some

A lot have changed in the village. Now they have something called dragon racing and that looks so much fun. Hiccups is all grown up and we see the dragons living in the village like they belong there. Everything been dragon proofed of course and they have a big cave for them to sleep in. Since we see more dragons in this film I have to say they act more or less like cats and dogs. It’s so cute and a bit funny.

While Hiccup is flying he comes across a mysterious rider he investigates and Hiccups find out it’s his mother, who believed been dragon food 20 years ago. She lives in a cave FILLED with dragons and calls it safe haven for dragons with a huge alpha who takes care of them. During all of this a new enemy lurks in the shadows – Drago and his dumb errand boy Eret. Now Hiccup, Stoick, Valka and the entire island have to come together to fight Drago and his madness plan. You’ll also see a new side of Toothless – a good side. Even Eret might surprise you in the end!

Still, this movie is also for any age, no matter if you’re 2 or 90 you will come to love this film.

Voice actors: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Djimon Hounsou, Kristen Wiig, Kit Harington and many more.

Family/Animated Week: How To Train Your Dragon (2010) **REVIEW**

I’ll been hearing all good things about How To Train Your dragon so I decided to see the first one. I have to admit I never seen the films before until today and I love it. It’s different and original. And no matter what age you’re in you can appreciate the films.

Hiccup is a viking but he’s no ordinary viking like the others in his village. It’s very often they get attacked by dragons and Hiccup always wanted to kill one to get some status. Because he always been small and skinny, while the others are a little bigger. So it’s often he gets picked on and the others feel like he shouldn’t be anywhere near a dragon. Specially his father, the village leader feels Hiccup isn’t viking enough to be battling the dragons. So Hiccup himself built a catapult of some sort and manage to catch a dragon no one seen before – Nightfury. So he goes looking for him and see’s that he’s hurt. While Hiccup is taking care of him his father decided after all, Hiccup have to train  how to kill a dragon. But all along Hiccups just want to take care of them. He’s starting to see another side of the dragons, specially of the dangerous Nightfury that he named Toothless. They get a strong relationship and trust each other. During the time Hiccup learns a lot about dragons from Toothless, he use it in his training.. But he doesn’t want to do it, he doesn’t want to kill a dragon, they aren’t dangerous, long as you are friendly, so are they. You just need to know how to show them you’re not dangerous.

Highly recommended film for any age, no matter if you’re 2 or 90 years old, you will come to love the film.
