The Lone Ranger will be releasing in Singapore on 4th July 2013, [yes, it happens to be US’s Independence Day] and I am really excited about it because it stars Johnny Depp.
An action-adventure film, this film is infused with thrills and humour and in The Lone Ranger, Native American Spirit Warrior, Tonto [Johnny Depp], recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid [Armie Hammer], a man of the law, into a legend of justice.
Taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction, the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
The Lone Ranger also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter, and is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski.
When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot–fame and fortune are his for the taking–that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity–and even a bit of wizardry–Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
Our Review of the Movie:
We found Oz The Great & Powerful to be rather heartwarming and we really liked how the story unfolded. The casts acted really well and we really hope that there will be a sequel in the pipelines. The movie is suitable for children and we really like how the movie teaches values such as responsibility and accountability. Having said that, there could have been some improvements made because we found certain scenes lacking depth and elaboration. Anyways, the movie doesn’t follow exactly the way it is originally written by L. Frank Baum and it is 2 hours and 11 minutes long. If you’re looking for a fantasy-adventure sort of movie, this is one movie you got to catch!
Having collected the tickets, we headed to the washroom to freshen ourselves up and we kinda like the way they put up the Male & Female toilet posters to indicate the direction to the Male & Female toilets respectively.
This particular movie premiere that we attended was unlike many of the ones we attended before. In fact, there were games organised before the movie premiere and well, Baby and I had a go at some of the game stations.
So.. there’s this mini Tug-of-War station that only can accommodate a maximum of 4 players.
Having tried all the games and activities, we then journeyed to the cinema hall where we had the chance to catch the movie, “Brave” before anyone else in Singapore [except those whom were invited of course]
Baby and I felt that the movie was fantastic and it is very family-oriented. As such, the movie is quite suitable for children and it is perfect for family gatherings/outings especially during the upcoming National Day. I am not sure if teenagers would fancy this sort of movie but Baby and I enjoyed it alot. Also, the movie teaches children about values and we feel that it is an ideal movie for wholesome content. If you are looking for a movie to watch during the upcoming National Day, do check out the movie, “Brave“! By the way, the movie will only be released on the 8th of August 2012.
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
