I was just realizing the other day that it's been awhile since I've reviewed any tv shows/ movies! I do watch things pretty often, if only to relax after a long day's work in the graphics lab. Time to actually review said movies... well, that's a little harder to come by!
Speaking of New York City, Premium Rush definitely makes you feel like you are right in the middle of Manhattan. It follows a day in the life of a New York bike messenger (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who's been given a package to deliver that a mysterious stranger would do anything to get back from him. It's definitely an edge-of-your-seat kind of movie and has absolutely beautiful street views of the city. I loved the storyline and the characters and would definitely watch this one again. The one word of warning I would give is the high level of swearing in this movie.
I give it 4.25 out of 5 stars.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Basically, it has a Dawson's Creek meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer feeling to it. Which... is right up my alley! I'm about halfway through the first season now (watching is slower than I'd like to be watching it, but I'm in school most of my life these days!), and I am definitely curious to see what happens next. I recommend this for anyone looking for an intelligent, mysterious storyline in a high school setting. It's very clean with only marginal violence (an occasional vampire gets stabbed with a wooden stake now and then) and has a very interesting story arch that makes you want to keep watching episode after episode! (In fact, if you know you only have a limited time to watch, I'd recommend turning it off before an episode ends, as nearly all the episodes end on a cliffhanger!)
I give it 3.75 out of 5 stars.
