Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Gambit' (1966)

Movie: Gambit
Year: 1966
My Rating: 8.4/10 Stars ********'
This was quite a bit better than I expected it to be. Michael Caine recruits the unsuspecting Shirley MacLaine to assist him in the heist of a valuable piece of sculpture from the richest man in the world. I especially like how they mislead you at the beginning, but I won't give that part away any more than that. Check this one out, especially if you like jewel-thief/heist themed movies, its another classic.

Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Better Off Dead' (1985)

Movie: Better Off Dead
Year: 1985
My Rating: 7/10 Stars *******
This is one of those classic John Cusack 80s movies of all time (and my personal favorite). It contains all the strangely sorted teen jokes, goofy scenes, and typical high school stereotypes, and 80s movie formula kool-aid that you will definitely rock out. Oh, and the Soundtrack is pretty rad too, just wish it were on ITunes or something.  Check it out!

Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Bride Flight' (2011)

Quite a good and interesting Dutch movie about a group of young Dutch expatriates looking for a new life and prosperity in New Zealand. A close-knit group of young Dutch settlers start out on a competitive flight to NZ, some of the young women are to be married to lonely farmers there, and some are young men, one of whom fathers a child with one woman, whilst having romance with another. Another of the couples discovers she is infertile and secretly agrees to adopt the out-of-wedlock child of the other woman and it just gets complicated so you will have to watch it. Good story, and quality acting.

Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Cactus Flower' (1969)

Movie: Cactus Flower
Year: 1969
My Rating: 8/10 Stars ********

Yes Yes fans, its another oldie. This one debuted in 1969, and is quite a good one. Stars include Ingrid Bergman, a very young Goldie Hawn, and Walter Matthau. Matthau is a dentist on 5th avenue who is dating much younger Hawn, and who finds himself in a pickle when he has to continually cover up for lying to her that he was married with children. Bergman (his dental assistant) inevitably becomes involved in the plot and drama ensues. Check this one out, its a classic.

Akhu's Movie Reviews: 'Hellboy II' (2008)

Movie: Hellboy II
Year: 2008
My Rating: 7.8/10 Stars *******'
This is one of those cases where the sequel is just-as-good-if-not-better than the original. This movie was definitely a higher budget as well, and well worth watching. The same group of secret-government-paranormal agents finds themselves going up an ancient and invincible force called the golden army, and a elven prince who wants to raise it to destroy humanity. Lots of good action scenes, check it out.
