Vampires Suck Movie Reviews

Vampires Suck is a spoof of all things vampire, well Twilight at least. Theres loads of other vampire things it could have spoofed old and new like Buffy, Angel, True Blood, Vampire Diaries and many more, but instead it sticks steadily to Twilight, following the story of New Moon. This in itself is unfortunate as its a boring story and soon runs in to the same dead end story. It does provide a few chuckles, but rapidly runs out of steam.

Devil Movie Review

As it has stayed grey we headed to Sawgrass Mall and cinema to see Devil, written and produced by M. Night Shamallamalinlang, but not directed by him for a change! Which is a shame, as it was actually quite good! Set in a lift, the devil decides to turn up a reap all the naughty peoples souls, who also just happen to be in the same lift. Some good twist 'n turns, lights flickering, mystery and deaths. However there is the usual film, film, film, obvious glaring plot point, film, film, film, film, film, back to obvious plot point which you are supposed to be surprised at! However it did take a lengthly flash back and for someone to say the obvious out loud in the film for the American audience to literally gasp out loud and finally realise what you knew about an hour ago! Miles better than Last Air Bender and certainly leaps above Lady in the Water.

Speedboat Rental

Today, after a couple of days lazing in the sun, we decided to get up off our loungers from by the pool and go rent a speedboat to go up and down the inter coastal at Fort Lauderdale. We managed a couple of hours in the sun before it greyed over, putt putting around the expensive houses.

R.E.D. Movie Review

Retired and Extremely Dangerous (RED) is a film about retired CIA, MI6 and KGB agents who come out of retirement for one last mission. All the actors, Willis, Freeman, Mirren and Malkovich are extremely believable and very comfortable in their roles. The film is very light hearted, with good action pieces and the story moves along at a nice pace. We thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Miami Art Deco at Night

After dinner we took in the sights of Miami Beach at night. All along Ocean Boulevard the art deco style buildings were lit up in neon.

Miami Duck Tour

Today we boarded a giant bus/boat contraption called a Duck Tour. We drove down Collins Avenue and Miami Causeway where numerous films and TV shows were filmed including Miami Ink and Bad Boys. We then literally drove off the edge of Miami dock, plopped into the water and started our boat tour round the harbour! Very similar route to the speedboat yesterday, but speedboat was more fun!

Miami Thriller Speedboat

After a morning of laying in the sun, we headed round to Miami Harbor and the shops at Bayside to go on a trip on the Miami Thriller! A huge 1000bhp speedboat capable of carrying 35 passengers at over 50mph while leaving a huge jet stream in the water behind us!

As well as the huge speed boost, we also slowed down to see Star Island, where surprisingly stars live, such as Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan and the man who invented viagra! Mr. Viagra lives very comfy in his $75 million mansion!
