NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2: BATTLE OF THE SMITHSONIAN (2009)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

As the prequel’s slogan goes – where history comes to life – this time it’s no different! The exhibits at the Museum of Natural History are being shipped to the Federel Archives in lieu of revamping the museum. However, Larry (Ben Stiller), now a successful inventor, knows better when the magical Egyptian tablet is shipped over as well. Now, the largest museum comes to life!

The bad guy is Kahmunrah, a pharaoh mummy, who plans to dominate the world in his second chance to live. He is so funny defending his outfit (tunic) which the others insists it’s a dress, and watch his attitude towards Darth Vader!

(Confronting Vader)
Kahmunrah: Is that you breathing? Because I can’t hear myself think! There’s too much going on here; you’re asthmatic, you’re a robot. And why the cape? Are we going to the opera? I don’t think so.

Too bad the Force was not with Darth at that moment.

I loved the part where they jumped into the portrait, where Larry left his mobile phone in that era. Bet you didn’t know the sailor that picked up his phone was Joey Motorola. Larry’s sidekick is the fiesty Amelia Earhart, who uses cool ’30s phrases like “jimmy-jacked” and “moxie”. Oh, did I mention the Jonas Brothers are in the movie too?! They are the singing cupids (not cute at all but still recognizable). I also enjoyed the various appearances of the cast of The Office. Overall, the movie provided really good, hearty laughs.

BURNIN’ UP FOR YOU BABY

JONAS BROTHERS: THE 3D CONCERT EXPERIENCE (2009)
– 3 out of 5 stars 

OOH! I went to watch Jonas Brothers in 3D!!!!!!!

To be honest, I was kinda anticipating it before the movie opened, but I’m not an extreme Jonas Brothers fan. Just that when they keep appearing on TV and I keep catching them on it, and when people scream, you scream; when they sing, and you start singing too. Not to mention, it’s in 3D! My next two 3D movies will be Up! andMonsters vs. Aliens!

Anyway, the concert-movie was a little short (76 minutes) and they played quite a number of songs, most of which I do not know except for the real popular ones likeS.O.S.Burnin’ Up and This Is Me (from Camp Rock – which I watched too). Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift guest stars and sings along with the JoBros. You get to go behind the scenes, experience their popularity, the fan-stampede and get to see Joe Jonas shirtless! Oh, Nick is really talented- he plays the guitar, piano and drums! But he’s so young… LOL!

Overall, their concert was pretty big and the stage design was very nice! Their emblem was flaming and the JoBros even sprayed foam at their audience! Man, those sprays were huge! And I stayed till the very end because even the credits were in 3D!
