Very nice. Much nicer to glance at my wrist (which lights automatically when I rotated my wrist) and check the current time (which is always displayed) and being able to see any metric at a glance. While riding I was alerted to a text message (work never ends), pulled off the trail and responded right away using Siri. Nice!

Summary: A video-game like movie; a cross behind the much referred to Groundhog Day and with some Independence Day thrown in. Tom Cruise is an effortless actor, and this movie mainly works because of his genuine performance. The ending is a bit of a head scratcher, but the premise and the process is an interesting and unique one. Definitely worth the watch. Continue reading Monkey Movie Review – Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Summary: Jurassic World is entertaining enough to make it worth seeing. Best viewed in the theater for its special effects and action. The movie is somewhat predictable, but the acting is good and there are plenty of thrills. Chris Pratt is his likable self. Like most action movies nowadays, but unlike the original Jurassic Park, this movie relies to much on CGI with only a few “puppets”. Monkey says, check it out.

Summary: Another great Pixar movie that, while a bit slow in the middle, turns out to nail aspects of growing up, pain and happiness with great voice work, a unique and clever plot and plenty of crying. Monkey says definitely check out this movie.

Summary: Man of the Year is an odd mix of comedy along with an attempt at suspense, plus the inclusion of political commentary to boot. It’s five-star cast can’t make up for the flaws in the script, and while unbelievable and uneven, it’s still maybe worth a watch to see Robin Williams, Lewis Black and Christopher Walken and Jeff Goldblum in the same movie – directed and written by Barry Levinson (Good Morning Vietnam, Wag the Dog, Diner, The Natural). Monkey says, check it out if you’re a fan of Williams, but otherwise avoid. And if you want to see a better Levinson commentary on politics, rent Wag the Dog. Continue reading Monkey Movie Review – Man of the Year (2006)
Summary: A mediocre look at parts of the best of Monty Python, delivered as a live show, but also a reminder of how long ago the glory days of this comedy troupe were. Still worth checking out and still provides some laughs and entertainment. Continue reading Monkey Movie Review – Monty Python (mostly) : One Down, Five to Go (2014)
Summary: Had the right ingredients and actors to be a very funny show that could have provided insight into comedy … Continue reading Monkey TV Review – The Comedians (2015)
