GotG Vol. 2 – or let’s talk about plot, baby

Three things that saved GotG Vol. 2 from total bust: The characters and their relationships – namely, the first movie; The Chain by Fleetwood Mac; Nebula and Yondu. I also have to give them credit for avoiding a giant hole in the sky and opting for a subterranean climax. Twice as many things due to…

So, what is wrong with Ghost in the Shell…

….aside from all the painfully obvious things such as: Not enough ghost, a lot of shell; Two-dimensional characters; Explaining of things that are obvious to a 2-year old; Non-existent villain; 1995 view of the future Pathetic attempt at exploring the discorporation of consciousness? All those things fade in the wake of the fact that 21st…

Frowny Faces, Sparkly Eyes and Grey Stuff

The first movie I remember watching in the cinema is The Fisher King. It wasn’t a really sound decision my mother made when she decided to take my brother and me to see it. I had nightmares about the headless rider for years. Being a cinema-goer for 25 years I’ve pretty much seen it all….

Oh, Joy!

I wasn’t exactly a social animal as I was growing up, meaning I’ve watched a lot of TV. At one point in my life I have become a real connoisseur of “true story” TV movies. A mother’s battle with illness. A wife’s battle with abusive husband. A girl’s struggle through multiple foster parents. A family’s…

The Force, Awake it is

I’m not a die-hard fan of the Star Wars. I wouldn’t even call myself a fan. It’s a bit beyond classification because Star Wars has shaped the way in which my mind works, having been one of the first (if not the first) SF movie I have ever seen. When I think of a spaceship, I think of…

Why Does the Universe Hate Aaron Sorkin?

I really don’t know, I hope someone knows the answer, so I decided to put it out there. But this isn’t a post about Aaron Sorkin (not entirely). This is a post about Steve Jobs. Not the man. The movie. The movie is truly amazing. Loved every moment, was sorry to see it end. I…

Grey & Steele Do Hollywood

To say that I am not a fan of the 50 Shades of Grey (book) would be an understatement. Still, I’ve watched the movie. Call it masochism or using every opportunity to get self-righteous, but there, I did it. The movie transfers the book to the screen almost perfectly. Dialogue swerves left and right with…

Barely Lethal (2015)

As soon as I’ve seen the trailer, I knew that the possibility of me enjoying this movie was high. CAUTION alarm buzzed immediately. Unfortunately, expectation often leads to disappointment ¬†when these kind of movies are involved. However, I was not disappointed. The movie is good. It’s funny and fun, occasionally it’s smart. Jessica Alba actually…

Terminator: Daenerysys

Do you want to watch a mash-up of Terminator and Judgement Day? Do you want to see a chubby, cute Sarah Connor unable to shoot a gun properly because her bewbs are in the way? You do not require something new, original or noteworthy? You want to see J. K. Simmons in another role not worhty…

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Possibly the stupidest movie I’ve ever seen. Do you remember that moment when your saw a brontosaurus for the first time? Do you remember the music which, combined with the imagery, made you gasp with amazement and wonder? I think that was an important moment in movie history. Unlike Jurassic World, a 124 minutes long…

On the Fury Road

Writing about a movie mere minutes after watching it is not a good idea. But I’m so psyched that I cannot resist. Go watch Mad Max: Fury Road, like, NOW, and watch it in 3D. The movie is awesome. And my advice is, avoid finding out what the movie is about. You don’t need that….
