2 Guns - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
2 Guns
Rick Swift's insight:
The H-Bomb: Would be drug peddlers Bobby Trench (Denzel Washington) and Stig Stigman (Mark Wahlberg) hatch a scheme to rob a small town bank holding three million dollars that belong to Mexican narcotics kingpin Papi Greco (Edward James Olmos). The overly complicated heist goes down without a hitch, except for one thing, instead of finding three million in cash stashed in the safety deposit boxes, they find that the figure is much closer to 43 million. What’s more, that money doesn’t belong entirely to Greco, but to a much shadier organization operating north of the border. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/2-guns/#sthash.26DQAbVs.dpuf

The Body (El Cuerpo) - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
The Body (El Cuerpo) Film Review by Alyn Darnay of Chaos Films
Rick Swift's insight:
It’s a true Hitchcock/De Palma style psychological thriller complete with a missing body, morose Detectives, power wielding executives, a killer or two, forbidden love, and lots of clever misdirection. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/the-body-el-cuerpo/#sthash.iRbEOuci.dpuf

Despicable Me 2 Movie Review by Madison Monroe of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:
I’m not going to lie – I’m a Disney/Pixar snob.  If you read my reviews of recent animated Disney or Pixar movies, they are pretty much flawless.  There are other animated movies from other studios that just don’t reach the caliber of a Disney/Pixar animated feature, with few exceptions.  One exception is the “Shrek” series.  Another exception is the “Despicable Me” series.  What is it about the “Despicable Me” films that make them so great??  Is it Gru, the super-villian turned super-dad??  Is it his three adorable adopted daughters, Margo, Edith, and Agnes??  Or is it the minions?? - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/despicable-me-2/#sthash.WyiZuWPn.dpuf

The Heat - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
The Heat Movie Review by Madison Monroe of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:

The Heat

Bullock and McCarthy are fantastic together.  They really played well off each other.  I would definitely like to see this duo in future comedies!!  The movie did run a little long (almost two hours), but overall, The Heat is a hilariously funny tale about, more than anything else, family. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/the-heat/#sthash.rj1FufZ6.dpuf

Monsters University - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
Monsters University Movie Review by Madison Monroe of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:
Monsters University was a clean, kid-friendly version of “Revenge of the Nerds”.  It was amazing to see how Pixar created this whole college world…for monsters.  Everything you would find on a human college campus, you can see at Monsters University.  I found myself constantly being amazed by both the animation (of course, it was Pixar!!) and the level of detail in each scene.  I loved the addition of the new monsters in the Oozma Kappa fraternity.  Stay tuned for a cute scene after the credits. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/monsters-university/#sthash.bHHy2erk.dpuf

Man of Steel - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
Man of Steel Movie Review by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:
Man of Steel reminds us all that the choices we make have consequences, political, personal and even the choices of our parents have consequences we might not yet understand.  Ultimately though, we will have to face those consequences, if even Superman can’t hide from the sins of his fathers.  There’s little hope we stand a chance ourselves. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/man-of-steel/#sthash.EyDc4OtR.dpuf

The Purge Movie Review - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
The Purge Movie Review by Michael Carter
Rick Swift's insight:

Hawke did a great job, along with the rest of the cast. Things can get boring when you cram almost a whole movie into one set location (like here in the house), but between the script, cast and action the play-through is smooth. I did wish it was longer. Some points could have been explored a little deeper. Overall I really enjoyed this thought provoking flick.

Interview with Dave Franco & David Limacher of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:

I don’t have a Twitter or anything like that. I feel pressured to get on Twitter, and I feel that if I’m on there people will be expecting me to write something every day, or be funny all the time. I’m really a private person, and don’t really find myself to be funny “all the time”, so I’m avoiding Twitter as long as I can!

Turbo - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
Turbo Film Review by Michael Carter of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:
The animation was really nice looking, but I’m not a big fan of the style. Like the way the people look, body wise. Again, it was still clean looking and smooth. I thought the story was fun with a good playthrough. It’s a turbo charged snail, burning rubber at 200+ mph, with his own neon ground effects. You can’t help but laugh! For a high speed movie, it does drag a bit here and there. Overall, it’s a flick the family can enjoy. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/turbo/#sthash.Uvc6k7Eo.dpuf

Unfolding like a hazy, half-remembered dream, Upstream Color tells the story of Kris (Amy Seimetz), a successful career woman who wakes up one day to find that not only are several days missing from her memory, but that she’s been fired from her job, her bank accounts have been completely emptied, and her life has more or less been ruined. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/at-home/upstream-color/#sthash.rs9acVOb.dpuf

Hating Breitbart At Home Movie Review by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:
The film is highly informative, it also allows his critics plenty of time to hang themselves, as Breitbart would certainly approve.  Breitbart was a threat to the left, because he was trained by them, he knew their tricks, he knew their names, he knew their character. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/at-home/hating-breitbart/#sthash.CSlFBC9R.dpuf

Pacific Rim Movie Review by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com

Swift shot:  Godzilla meets Robotech ala Guillermo del Toro!  While there is certainly enough mythology surrounding both of those franchises, what makes Pacific Rim stand alone is that it merely borrows from both without trying to remake either. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/pacific-rim/#sthash.jFl05yb5.dpuf

Movie 43 - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films

Movie 43 - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
Movie 43 Movie Review by Movie Critic H-Man of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:
Movie 43 is absolutely worthless on every level. How so many talented people were tricked into partaking in this steaming pile of fail has to be one of the most baffling mysteries of our time, and watching them try so hard to make this pathetically imbecilic material work is as sad as it is wrenchingly painful. It is, by a mile, the worst film of 2013 that I’ve seen, and the thought of coming upon one this year that somehow manages to be even worse is frightening beyond comprehension. This epic piece of Razzie bait has garnered its much deserved reputation for a reason, and unless the sight of Gerard Butler playing a demented leprechaun tickles your fancy, there is no reason for you, or anyone else, to go anywhere near this colossal shit-bomb. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/at-home/movie-43/#sthash.lFr0YPVv.dpuf

White House Down - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
White House Down Movie Review by H-Man of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:

White House Down

is a lot better than it has any right to be. In my always humble opinion, it’s by far Emmerich’s best film since Independence Day, which could very well make it his best film, period. It’s a rockin’, rollicking, and utterly ridiculous old school action flick, with enough gunfire and carnage to spare. It won’t totally blow you away, but overall, it’s not a bad way to kill a couple hours on a slow summer day. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/white-house-down/#sthash.WgyBNJ9V.dpuf

Much Ado About Nothing - South Florida Movie Reviews by I Rate Films | Film reviews | Scoop.it
Much Ado About Nothing Movie Review by Alyn Darnay of Chaos Films
Rick Swift's insight:

Much Ado About Nothing -

is really “Something”. Something very special. First of all, it was made by the extremely talented, 3rd generation Hollywood screenwriter and director Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Firefly, Buffy, Angel). Then, Whedon called upon the members of his regular ensemble of talented actors, and filmed this modern-dress version of Shakespeare’s comedy in 12 days within the confines of his Santa Monica estate. - See more at: http://iratefilms.com/reviews/film-reviews/much-ado-about-nothing/#sthash.UcmUtH9c.dpuf

This is the End Movie Review by Madison Monroe of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:

I’m pretty sure the guys were mocking themselves in this movie.   It seemed like they had a lot of fun shooting this film, and I wonder how much of it was improvised.  Some parts were so funny, I missed some of the dialogue, because everyone in the theater was laughing so hard.  With a running time of 107 minutes, it did drag a bit.  I thought they could have made more montages to show the passage of time.  It was a fun ride though, you never know what to expect!! -

Movie Review: The Internship by Rick Swift of iratefilms.com
Rick Swift's insight:

The Internship has a lot of heart!  Director Shawn Levy gives us something to aspire to achieve and reminds us that we need to provide more than just an opportunity to our graduating seniors – we need to have faith, and yes, hope.  But, hope is a four-letter word if it isn’t backed by persistent practice, research and faith.
