I read some time ago a paper (or was it a presentation) stating that there are a dozen of stories, that are changed and adapted, generating all the movies we have seen since the story of the world. I am not that drastic, but it seems that at least there was some kind of information sharing between the writers of this movie and the writers of Star Trek, into the Darkness. Why? Same base… somehow it seemed that the current status of the X-men World story wasn’t flexible enough, so lets get back into time, and change the story, so that now we can rewrite it, making some characters that were dead alive again. For Star Trek it was similar, the actors were idolized, or almost, and therefore, they got back in time to somehow introduce the new actors.
Not that I am against the idea. If you read an older post about the Star Trek movie I really gave my congratulations to the writers for that idea. Now I am not sure if I should congratulate again, as it seems the idea is not new.
Anyway, the movie is good. The story acceptable. Lots of action, fun, and a lot of different mutants around (I like when there are a lot of them, not just one or two). But what I liked the most? The scene I captured above, with Quicksilver. Not just I like the character, but Evan Peters is great. Please, please, please, make him come back in future movies.
The first western I was able to see and like. True. Like specially the color. Great. I am not sure, but I think a lot is CGI. Nevertheless, great imaging. Also, like the jokes. Good the jokes about things too modern. Good the jokes about the different ways to die. And yeah, it is always good to know all the ways there are to die/kill. The story is not brilliant or new, but is good enough. And when you laugh from time to time, it is great. I liked it.
I am a Fast and Furious fan, and a somewhat retired Need for Speed player. I had fear regarding this movie, trying to, at first, mimic the game, and at last, compete with Fast and Furious. I must admit I was wrong. The movie is very enjoyable and somewhat unpredictable in some situations. At some extend it is the usual Hollywood movie, but in some other situations, it is not. I do not want to give spoilers, as this is a quite recent movie, but I must say that the Need for Speed (game) imitation is only at the end, and not that bad.
If you like cars, velocity and dangerous stunts, then this movie is for you. There are a couple comedy situations (as the one above) and a little drama too. So, a kind of complete movie.
If there is a sequel, I will be watching it. Voted 8 in 10 at IMDB.
And the fifth season of Modern Family finished. And I should tell that the episodes that I liked most are the last ones. Not really the last (spoilers: on the wedding) but some previous. Also, I love how Lily can interfere and comment her dads. After a talk with a friend I knew most people dislike her character. I must say I like it a lot.
Of course, this is not a movie, so I can’t talk much on the story… as they are 25 stories, the big view, and each one of the 24 episodes. Some are better than other, of course, but in the overall, this series is fun to watch.
I though on publishing a photo on the wedding (sorry, spoiler alert, but I won’t say whose), but after this picture popped in my screen I had no doubt I should publish Kaley Cuoco again. Oh, how I like that girl…
Talking about this season, the usual kind of story, but still fun. Now with some girlfriends around. This makes me think… even Sheldon has a girlfriend. Why don’t I have one?…
A set of three small (erotic) stories by three different directors. First, “The Hand”, by Kar Wai Wong. An interesting story, although it is not that erotic. It is mostly a Drama. Then, “Equilibrium”, by Steven Soderbergh is a little more erotic, but instead we have a Comedy. The story is great. I voted 7 in 10 for the set, but if it was only for Soderbergh story I might vote higher. In this story there is a small view of a woman nude (the first does not contain any, and can still be erotic). Finally, “The Dangerous Thread of Things” by Michelangelo Antonioni is a strange story. Well, sorry, I can not find a story on this. At least not one with a beginning and an end. Probably I was distracted by the girls and boobs, and missed some detail. But I think that directing a movie is, first of all, telling a story, and if you at the end are unable to tell any, then the movie is shit. Yes, Luisa Ranieri is sexy and hot. But that does not make this an interesting movie. So, probably the more erotic, because of the nudes, but the less interesting one.
Crazy movie, fun movie. I do not like much this movie actors (exception for Emma Watson), but although in a crazy way, the movie focus an aspect that I think is a problem in the world, nowadays. What problem? Redemption! A lot of people (mostly Christians, probably, and before any further comments, I will net you know I am a Catholic Christian) that trust in God (I am not so sure I do, but that is not the point for this post), think they can buy the “Heaven Eternity” at the end of their lives, showing compassion, or similar. This is a problem because people assassinate others, rob banks, perform frauds, etc, etc, because they trust that, at the end, they will ask for redemption. Probably this though is not logic, or is wrong, but I think it IS a real problem.
Well, back to the movie… good to know there are bikini girls in the heaven. It makes me much more happy if going there. Also, bad to know that Rhianna is a bad girl, and will go to hell. Regarding Emma Watson, well, we know she as some sins, but we aren’t yet aware if she will get redemption for her sins.
Other than that, it is difficult to explain the movie. Just watch it.
Yeah, I couldn’t post a Jack image. It would be too easy to predict. On Sally it would be the same. So I decided to post Pumpkins, making this way a tribute to a big friend.
On the movie, I confess I was expecting more. Probably because I saw Corpse Bride and I loved it, and was expecting more from this. No, not that it is bad. But when you are watching a movie that you are expecting to be bad, without a story, and it surprises you, you get very interested on it. In the other hand, when somebody tells you it is great, and it is not as you imagined, you get disappointed. So, probably this is what happened.
Nevertheless, the story is nice, there are jokes all around, and the animation and characters design are very nice. Voted 8 in 10 @ IMDB.
If at first this (Mexican) movie can seems an Erotic movie, it is much more than that. You can start suspecting that if you notice the classification as a Drama movie, and later, when you start wondering why an erotic movie would have a 7.7 classification at IMDB.
No, not because of the boobies (there aren’t that many) or the cunts (not so many, too). But because of the message the movie passes. You won’t understand it fully until the end (or at least, I did not). The way the narrator interrupts the movie to say something, and the fact that he doesn’t say, always, relevant things to the movie, makes it kind of harder to understand the real reason for the way the movie rolls.
If you do not get easily shocked with sex talk, and some nudity, then probably you will like to watch the movie and, and the end, it will make you think about (yours) live.
Yeah, only me to put a screenshot with Uhura for Star Trek. But then, if you notice my other post about the last Star Trek movie, I put some underwear as well. So, for consistency, I decided to follow the same idea.
And, yeah, as usual (not really, but…) I watched these last two Star Trek movies in the wrong order, so I missed some details in the last one, that were explained properly on this. So, sorry for the spoilers. Stop here if you do not want any.
When watching the second movie I though our good old Leonard Nimoy (aka THE Spock) was some kind of father for the new Spock. Just understood they are the same with this movie.
Regarding the story, I must confess that I though of this dual life (travel back in time, change the future) was a decent solution to continue this saga. It allows to construct new lives for the characters we all know, without the weight on “hey, you are changing the story.. it didn’t go that way”. So, now two different stories can be told, in parallel. Probably (mostly sure) a lot of Star Trek fans did not like this solution. But for me, it was a damn good choice.
