123movies Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
The best of the series from the hats of Michael Bay, Special hats off to him and Steven Spielberg for the amazing special visual effect. Inclusion of the human struggle for freedom against the new treat is an added stroy line tat supports the play. Sound effects awesome. 3D effects spellbound.And a special thanks to the writer Ehren Kruger for overcoming Revenge of the fallen with a superb script. The chase of the autobots from Earth to the moon for the Cybertronian spacecraft sets the plot with couple of twist (three in fact).Rosie Huntington-Whiteley she is damn nice compared to Mikaela who ditched our dear old "Messenger" or "Alien Badnews Magnet" boy Sam. Inclusion of Sams parents was quite unnecessary while concentrating on human-decepticon killing agent could was a new kind of plot missing in the previous flicks. And as always one person to stand in the way of Sam :Frances McDormand(Mearing) was good. John Malkovich's small cameo was interesting especially the embrassing part of Sam. The new ally of Sam is also does his part well (John Turturro) Former agent Simmons. Overall for those crazy action flick geeks and for first timers its a really a good movie to watch.
Director: Michael Bay
Cast: Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Tyrese Gibson
123movies Thor (2011)
Thor is obviously the latest film in the Marvel Film Universe, directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring fellow Aussie Christ Hemsworth as the Titular character. The plot kind of cuts to the spoilers early on so as a spoiler-free review I shouldn't tell you the plot. Though Kenneth Branagh is a really weird choice to direct this he does make this (I am happy) to say Marvel's best work yet. He mixes a fan boy's wet dream and mixes it with suitable humor, dazzling FX and (probably the best part of the movie) the family's relationship to make this appeal to everybody. The acting is also good, Chris Hemsworth was probably the perfect choice for Thor, Anthony Hopkins played Odin good (as he could do in his sleep), Natalie Portman played Jane good, though the character doesn't have that much interesting, she does what she has too do, Kat Dennings was actually really good as Jane's annoying friend who freshens up the humor throughout the movie, Stellan Skarsgĺrd is good, the supporting cast was generally good but Tom Hiddleston steals the show, as the envious of Thor and mischievous villain Loki. Kenneth Branagh did a really good job at this movie. Though it is at the start a bit hard to get into. But Thor is a great action film with strong acting, screenplay and direction. This is really the Superhero movie to beat this year.
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman

123movies This Means War (2012)
Two top CIA operatives wage an epic battle against one another after they discover they are dating the same woman. Review: FDR and Tuck, best friends working for the CIA, finds out that they are both going after tr same woman, and decides to spy on each other while trying to win the girl. A simple plot, perhaps. But the main theme is comedy. Using a simple plot, making it into a romantic comedy requires lots of comic timing, and I feel that they have done well. Even the editing was perfect. While I don't understand why critics have to be so harsh on their reviews, I feel that this is one of the few great comedy movies that should not be watched with high expectations.
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine,Tom Hardy
