Son Of Kong.
Kong: Skull Island.
One of my top favourite Disney-Pixar films, very heartwarming and amusing, lots of adorable robots and adorable moments:
And this beauty that has given me great moments of fun since my childhood, one of the reasons of why I love stuff like sorcery and stories about witches, magic, halloween, etc..
Ended up having a private viewing of Kong, was pretty awesome film. Manly men, 2 beautiful women, guns explosions and monsters, what more could you want?
Another favourite Disney movie from the glorious 80's decade, the times I watched it I hadn't the chance to watch it from the very beginning, I think I only saw it from the beginning once. But this movie is really amusing and entertaining too. I love the relation between the kitten Oliver and his owner Jenny.
And this movie...Emmmm...This one called Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators (or just Alligator Alley)....what I found kinda interesting is how the mutant alligators in this movie are created and the mutating effects their meat has due to bad moonshine dumped into the bayou with some toxic chemicals..But I cannot say the same thing about the rest of the movie. While the idea of how these mutant gators appeared and what cause more mutations soumnds kinda crazy, what turns this film not so good are the way bad acting, the shameful drama, the terrible special effects, etc...Too bad they didn't do well the movie, otherwise it could be really fascinating.
No offense to the guys from SyFy but if they really want and love making monster movies, I fear they must apply at least a bit of enthusiasm in the plot, drama, acting etc...
Because while they might get some crazy ideas for their monster movies just like this one or Sharktopus, Sharknado, etc...the bad direction, shame CGI animation and acting ruin them..
The best Alligator or Crocodile horror films I've seen till now are the original Lake Placid film and the Australian film Rogue. And one I always desired to watch after jhearing how good it is, the 1980 film Alligator.
Good movie! Captures the spirit of Disney's original quite nicely, even if it feels a tad overstuffed at times.
Got around to 10 Cloverfield lane, was alright
Just watched Kong: Skull Island at last....Truly AWESOME!! These guys did a better job with King Kong in this movie than Peter Jackson.
And honestly, Mason Weaver is better female protagonist than Ann Darrow
Watched Dredd.....this movie was basically just violence for violence sake. It had none of the heart, fun, or comedy of the original film....plus -10 points for the motorcycles not flying
Saw Logan! was pretty good! Could be the best X related film besides deadpool. Obviously the best wolverine movie, but that's not saying much
My only real complaint would be the somewhat lack of super powered mayhem towards the end.
Eh, I thought it was alright.
Double feature this time.
The best DC movie since the Dark Knight Rises, the Lego Batman Movie is a hilarious romp from start to finish. You can tell that the people who worked on this film were long-time Batman fans, because this film is a gigantic love letter to the long history of the Batman franchise, featuring tons of references and nods to other Batman works that are hilarious if your a long time fan of Batman. Not that the film isn't great just because of all the Batman references, the film itself is still a hilarious and fun film. Will Arnett's Batman is still as funny as ever, and his interactions with his allies are some of the best moments in the whole film. Joker was also hilarious to watch. Not to mention how crazy the film gets in its third act. Plus the film isn't afraid to mock other recent DC films, like the Suicide Squad.
So basically, this film has it all: Humor, fun, action, fantastic characters, and the most homoerotic depiction of Batman and Joker's relationship ever seen on the big screen. I'm just glad that after 20 years, DC finally made a film about the Bat-Family that turned out great.
Now on the opposite end of tone...
After 17 years and two other attempts at it, Fox finally delivered the Wolverine film we've all waited and wanted to see, in where Logan just starts murdering the shit out of other people instead of just robots in beautiful, gratuitous, bloody violence. Hugh Jackman turns in possible his best performance ever as Wolverine, showing him as a man at the end of his rope. Patrick Stewart also turns in another brilliant performance as Xavier, showing us a man broken by age and regret. But the real star of the show might be Dafne Keen as X-23/Laura. Not only does she do a perfect job of acting like what Logan would be like as a small child, but she is also able to entirely on body language since her character is mostly silent, which is astonishing for a child actor. So basically, Logan is one of the best movies of the year and you should check out it.
The only real disappointment about Logan is that after 17 years, Hugh Jackman never got a chance to wear the yellow spandex.
Damn...I really need to watch the Lego Batman movie...
Hehe, you would think Logan would object to becoming a bright yellow target, and they did joke about it in the first X-Men film (right when they were strapping in in the X-Wing)
On that note, I just watched Kong, and boy was it worth the (1 month long) wait!
Extra props to Ramarak (aka the Big One) being intelligent enough to hit Kong where it hurts, and getting rid of Lt. Cole and his explosives
That was terrible. It felt like I was watching fanfiction. No more Damian Wayne movies! Please!
This film is just crazy XD. One of my favourite films directed by Tim Burton..If I'm not wrong, I think Tim Burton and the studio that filmed this beauty got some legal issues with TOHO for using Godzilla and King Ghidorah's characters without their permission. Even though, their cameo was hilarous, especially how it ended when Pee Wee was escaping with his bike XD.
This is one of my favourite Disney Films where the main character is a girl/woman. One of the very few Disney movies where the girl is the heroine long before movies like FROZEN and BRAVE appear. MULAN reminds me in some way to CINDERELLA's 1950 movie, where both girls were devaluated and unfairly treated..While Cinderella was treated like a slave and working as a scullery maid by her stepsisters and stepmother after stealing her home and benefits(Eugh), Mulan was unfairly mistreated and devaluated despite helping a lot the army to save China, just for being a girl..WAT?? Later to be recognized as a heroine for saving the Emperor and the whole China.
So Mulan is the kind of heroic character that I really love, the misunderstanding one who demostrates can overcome or surpass all odds, something many would never do.
So my favourite (besides Cinderella) Disney princess is Mulan.
The biggest problem, I think, with this film is that you aren't watching it right now. Seriously, go see it, it's incredible. The animation, characters, story, music, everything is just breathtaking. It's airing at select theaters for the next week, find somewhere you can see it, and go.
Idocracy by Mike Judge?How would you rate it since I'm interested in seeing after watching Judge's Office Space.
The most recent film I watched was Keanu on DVD.It is a good film but it lacks a little depth.I would say a must buy for any Key & Peele fan.
A long time favourite since my childhood, among the golden classics.
40 years ago, starting May 25th, a film came out about a ragtag group of misfits coming together to save the Galaxy. And in honor of that, I decided to take a look back at the sequel.
Hmmm...something doesn't feel right. I don't remember Princess Leia being quite so green. And I know I would've remembered if Kurt Russell had played Darth Vader.
Granted, it felt like the day was doing everything in it's power to hinder me from seeing this movie. And chances are that I'll feel like s*** in the morning, with about 9 hours of sleep between two days.
