Night of the Animated Dead review

Posted : 2 years, 8 months ago on 3 October 2021 09:40 (A review of Night of the Animated Dead)

Basically the same as the original film, but poorly animated. There are two deaths that were a little brutal and different. The biggest question is why was this necessary at all?

Deep (2017) review

Posted : 6 years, 6 months ago on 4 December 2017 04:26 (A review of Deep (2017))

Good lord this movie bugged the crap out of me. The animation is a mixture of fairly good to one of those awful animations three year olds watch. They throw in some very obvious adult humor at times and reference movies that feel so forced and completely out of place. Ex: There are skeletons of Jack and Rose from Titanic in one scene and they mention Godzilla and Mothra in another. They were trying to be funny I guess, but it was just so groanworthy! Also why would a character say "I hate to see you leave, but I love to watch you walk away"? YOU ARE IN THE OCEAN SAY SWIM AWAY!!! Moronic! There is no way I can believe even in a cartoon that a train would be able to work underwater with rust. I can't suspend my disbelief for stuff like that. Also there are a few musical numbers for who knows what reason! They just throw them in there and it's not even a freaking musical. The voice acting doesn't mesh well, but some are typically great in other things. Even though there were a few brief moments I liked it ultimately pissed me off! Anyways don't torture yourself with this one!

John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017) review

Posted : 7 years ago on 5 June 2017 02:21 (A review of John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017))

*I had a friend who watched this ten times! He said it was that good.
*I didn't have the time to go and check for myself so I waited patiently.
*It's awesome that Laurence Fishburne and Keanu Reeves reunited for this.
*Chad Stahelski also directed the first one with writer Derek Kolstad.
*I always love it when the writer and director stay together for the sequels.

*The freaking fight scenes!
*Ruby Rose!
*John Wick.
*That ending.
*Room for an amazing part three
*The sheer brutality.

*Morpheus didn't fight Neo.

This was so much fun and I clearly see why my friend saw it 10 times in theaters. The action is incredible and brutal. John Wick is a machine. The villains were interesting. If you don't enjoy this then I don't know what to tell you. It's a pure adrenaline rush from start to finish.

Alien: Covenant review

Posted : 7 years ago on 5 June 2017 02:09 (A review of Alien: Covenant)

*The trailer looked amazing and thrilling!
*I liked the little shorts leading up to this and they were a good publicity stunt to keep people curious about what would be coming.
*If you don't know who Ridley Scott is before watching this I can't help you lol.
*Jack Paglen also did Transcendence which was an interesting watch.
*Michael Green is known for Green Lantern (unfortunate) and Logan (amazing).
*John Logan worked on Gladiator and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
*This marks the first film for writer Dante Harper.

*Michael Fassbender was amazing.
*Danny McBride played serious pretty well.
*The neomorphs were brutally awesome.
*Callie Hernandez nuff said lol.
*There was a moment that reminded me of Joss Whedon's beautiful butterfly moment from part four I believe.
*It has enough of Prometheus and the Alien connection to be a nice sum of both.
*The ending makes you really want to see what they in store for part three.

*The twist was quite obvious.
*The deaths were a little too quick and bunched together.
*Some of the characters were a bit too dumb.
*It had it's share of plot holes.
*It wasn't scary like it was advertised.

It has it's errors, but I had too much fun to really care too much about them. I just wanted to see aliens and carnage. That's what I got and I am a happy camper. It could have been a bit better if made scarier and with the deaths more spread out. Still it's definitely worth watching if you are a fan. If you didn't like Prometheus you will probably still be kind of disappointed though.

El faro de las orcas review

Posted : 7 years ago on 3 June 2017 02:07 (A review of El faro de las orcas)

Netflix is the source of discovery with films like this. I had no idea what to expect and I didn't even know this was actually a remake as well with a slightly altered title. I've never heard of Gerardo Olivares or any of his work before this. The same goes for writers Lucia Puenzo and Sallua Sehk. So this was pretty remarkable. It's a beautiful story. The characters are wonderful and unique. The acting is incredible. I loved the whales and how they weren't treated like absolute monsters. It's a very peaceful film that pulls you in a just makes you want to smile. These are the kind of films that you must watch when you are feeling down. It's very uplifting. I highly recommend seeing this one.

Mercury Plains (2016) review

Posted : 7 years ago on 3 June 2017 01:56 (A review of Mercury Plains (2016))

I came across this one on Netflix and the premise caught my attention. It also had some cast members who aren't too shabby like Scott Eastwood and Nick Chinlund. This is the first I have seen or heard of from Charles Burmeister. It's a pretty basic telling of what could have been a more interesting story. The concept really is unique. The characters are interesting enough and how they deal with things. There are a few moments that didn't go as expected which is good. In the end though it's a pretty forgettable film. Still a one time watch won't be the worst thing you do.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children review

Posted : 7 years ago on 3 June 2017 12:27 (A review of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children)

*It's Tim Burton doing what he does best with a story that hasn't been put on screen before.
*Samuel L. Jackson is in it.
*Eva Green is always a plus.
*There are some interesting characteristics and abilities of characters.
*The story is interesting and fun.
*The acting is excellent from everyone although Samuel L. Jackson has a silly role.

* It can be a little corny at times as it's sort of directed towards kids.
*Not enough Eva Green or Samuel L. Jackson in my opinion.

*It reminds me of a love child of X-Men, Harry Potter, and Percy Jackson.
*Jane Goldman wrote two of the X-Men movies so it makes sense that it is similar.
*It's based off a book of the same name written by Ransom Riggs.

I think it's a really fun story. I consider that it might be a huge guilty pleasure for me. Anyways I do think it's worth at least checking out once. You may find yourself enjoying it more than you thought.

Win It All (2017) review

Posted : 7 years ago on 3 June 2017 12:18 (A review of Win It All (2017))

*Jake Johnson is usually fun to watch.
*It's simple and yet interesting enough.
*Keegan Michael Key is in it.
*It does try to make itself a little different than you would expect.

*Some things feel slightly misplaced here.
*It's a little too simple for itself.

*It's a quick and cute movie that's quite simplistic.
*This is the second time Jake Johnson has written his own movie.
*It's the third movie I have seen directed by Joe Swanberg, but it's only the second he also wrote.

It's not great or anything, but it's a decent watch to pass the time with especially for Jake Johnson fans.
