Torretto must reconvene with his team to stop Shaw and retrieve the God's Eye program while caught in a power struggle between terrorist and the United States government.
This movie was fantastic. I loved it. There was a lot of action and the bullet count was high. A lot of things went BOOM!!!!! All action movies need explosions. My favorite actors were Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. They were really good for this movie. They used some really cool cars for the film and it was cool how they went from building to building and how they dropped out of a plane in a car. I think it's both cool and stupid to do that. Very dangerous. Do not let kids try this at home. It was cool and cheesy that Dwayne's character was able to break of his cast and where did the cast on his leg go. They don't just magically disappear. It's not how casts work .Unless you're a wizard or something. I definitely thought Mr. Nobody was gonna be evil like he was just using them to get what he wanted and I was surprised. The ending was beautiful and I would most definitely see this movie again.
Maymay was lucky enough to interview this amazing actor. Not only is he talented and incredibly handsome, he has a HUGE heart and was patient and kind with Maymay. Phoenix was aware that she is autistic and he treated her like a friend, answering her questions when he could, and explaining to her why he couldn't answer others. He was encouraging to Maymay, and praised her for her quality of questions. She has become a HUGE fan of Phoenix and is excited to see him in his next big movie!
What was it like to be in a James Bond movie?
It was a really great experience. I grew up watching all of the Bond movies as a child so it has been an amazing and surreal thing to actually appear in one. I had the opportunity to be involved in various aspects of the creative process behind the scenes too on a few of the various locations during shooting, which was also equally great to be a part of. A very wonderful and impacting experience.
What was it like being in an action movie like James Bond compared to a magical one like Cinderella?
They were both action-filled and very magical to be a part of in different ways. I particularly enjoyed working on Cinderella because it is also such an inspiring, rich and uplifting story for children and those people like me who still believe in magic and fairy tales.
What's your favorite part about being an actor?
My favorite part about being an actor is the creativity, the language and the art involved in all of its aspects. I’m in love with that and the ability to express ones self and tell a story and paint endless colors and pictures of the world we live in, and or a world that doesn't exist to all of us but still represents a true idea or thought or an experience of something real to someone. It’s connectivity.
I saw that you've directed and starred in many films. Which do you prefer?
I began acting first and directing for film came much later. It’s still a new world for me in terms of directing film. I've always directed things however and though I’m an actor first, I get a great deal of enjoyment from both. I thoroughly enjoy the creative process being behind and in front of the camera. Both are very magical places to be where amazing things happen each and every second. If I’m not acting, I’ll be writing or performing or filming or directing something.
Who has been the most fun to work with?
The entire cast of Love Freely but Pay for Sex have so far been the best and most fun to work with. I've learned so much from working with them all, a truly very talented, creative and supportive bunch of actors and individuals, they have been a great treasure within my film making experience so far.
When you worked on Cinderella, did it feel magical like you were really in a fairy tale or did it feel like all the other movies you've been a part of?
Working on Cinderella felt just as magical and amazing as you would want the experience to be working on the set of a live-action childhood fairy-tale movie. It’s something that shall stay with me always.
What is your opinion on live action Disney films? Is there any specific Disney movie you would like to see live action?
I love live-action Disney films. Seeing now the things I saw and read when I was young being brought to life in a grand fashion on film is a true joy. I get to be a child all over again and bask in the nostalgia and memories of my childhood within the recreated stories in an epic big screen cinematic style and also with an adult mind and understanding of the messages and lessons within, that I would have overlooked or missed as a youngster. Recreate them all I say, each and every one, again and again for every new generation to come.

When millionaire James King is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars.
This movie was really funny but there were some scenes that I wish weren't there. Do not take little kids to see this. It is not appropriate for kids at all. I think this movie was made for Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell. I liked That Darnell's cousin Russel was a real thug. I liked that James King was listening to Icona Pop's I don't care song. My favorite part was when Darnell was pretending to be a thug around his wife and she whacks him. She was great and I couldn't stop laughing at that part. For someone who was pretending to be a thug Darnell seemed pretty good at it. I liked Makayla because she was a sassy little girl but adorable at the same time. Do people do this in real life? Do they really prepare to go to prison? I'm really curious. I don't think Mayo and Chocolat are good thug names though. They don't really say I'm a thug. I don't really know what a thug is, but I think this movie was a funny way to show what it means to be one.
When Oh, a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip who is on a quest of her own. Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human. And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word HOME.
This movie was cute but it was predictable. You knew Tip would find her mom. It was really strange that the Boov could change colors depending on their mood. I thought the flying car was really cool. They did kind of speak really bad Yoda language. There should have been some sort of plot twist somewhere. Like if the mom wasn't where they were expecting to find her and she was in a different town in Australia. The music was kind of catchy though. My hands were in the air like I just did not care. Rihanna and J-Lo were good and I liked Oh but it wasn't the best movie ever. I personally think Big Hero 6 was better and they weren't made by the same company. I thought Pig the cat was adorable though.

Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the government to recover artwork she believes rightfully belongs to her family.
This was an amazing movie. It was really cool how Randol Schoenberg, who was not an art lawyer was able to get back a famous painting for Maria. He gave up his job to help her get back a painting of her aunt and four others that belonged to her family. It was really cool that they took a whole country to court and won their case. I really liked that When Maria wanted to give up Randol wouldn't. He kept fighting no matter what happened. Randol took it up to the Supreme Court. I can't believe that there are still so many paintings un-returned to the families they were taken from. I never even knew it would take so long just to get them back. Fighting museums and countries and courts. It's a beautiful painting but I don't understand why they call it "Our Mona Lisa". They aren't the same or near the same. The only similarity is that it's a portrait. It must have been terrifying that she had to live round Nazi's watching the Jews paint on their houses or clean the sidewalk with acid. Then to leave her family behind to find safety. No one should have had to deal with that.
One choice can transform you-or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves--and herself--while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable--and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships. Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
This movie was so good that it was better than the first movie. Tris had to go through many more challenges than she had the first time.She tried to protect her brother after what happened to her mother and father. Tris aslo felt like she needed to protect her friends. I love Kate Winslet but Janine is a terrible person. I'm already anxious to see how the next movie is going to turn out. Peter had me confused. Was he good?Was he bad? It was like he couldn't make up his mind.This movie does feel a little like Hunger Games because they are stuck behind a wall and Panem are stuck behind fences. Then comes the rebellious teenager to change everything and bring hope. I still don't get why Janine was trying to keep the faction system going or why she was so into it. Wouldn't anybody try to get beyond the wall. I am curious to find out what is out there beyond the wall. What is it everyone is looking forward too. I didn't like that they get rid of Kate Winslet.

The Wired 96.5, and XTU 92.5 promotion teams are the BEST! The amazing and extremely hard working ladies always go out of their way for Maymay. They are simply incredible. This is what autism ACCEPTANCE looks like.
The story of "Cinderella" follows the fortunes of young Ella whose merchant father remarries following the tragic death of her mother. Keen to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother Lady Tremaine and her daughters Anastasia and Drizella into the family home. But when Ella's father suddenly and unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella since she used to work in the cinders, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who abuse her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an employee at the palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears as if her fortunes may be about to change when the palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming "Kit." Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand as a kindly beggar woman steps forward and, armed with a pumpkin and a few mice, changes Cinderella's life forever.
I loved this movie. I really liked this version of Cinderella. Helena was an amazing fairy godmother and I think Lily portrayed Ella very well. My favorite characters were Ella, her mother, fairy godmother, the prince, and the captain. Cate Blanchett was a very good evil stepmother and I liked that she smashed the shoe although how would she know where to find it? The prince was really cute too. I loved the blue dress and the slipper. It really did look like it belonged to a princess. The dance was beautiful and she was so graceful. I liked that they use some songs from the cartoon version in the credits. Just Like Maleficent they retold the story amazingly and it came together very nicely. Stellan Skarsgard looks so much different than when he was in Thor I couldn't tell it was him as the Grand Duke. Not only should kids see this but so should all the adults. Hayley Carter did a great job with playing Ella's mother and she looked great in her costume. Disney has once again made another fantastic live action movie. Bippidi-Boppidi-Boo!!!
In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. But now, the people are fighting back. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. As powerful, destructive forces start to see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order, they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.
I thought Chappie was funny. He kind of looks like a robot bunny. I like Hugh Jackman but I don't think he was the right person to play a bad guy. My favorite character was Yolandi because she was just so sweet to Chappie and acted like his mommy. My least favorite was Ninja. He was a bit mean. Although if there was a robot as nice as Chappie I would get one. My favorite part is when Chappie turns on the tv and He-man is on. I aslo liked that he mimicked the movements. I liked when Yolandi and Deon were teaching him how to paint. I wish I could paint like that.That robot has some skills. As CEO of the company Sigourney Weaver's character, Michelle Bradley should of been in the movie more.
