Not since "Saving Private Ryan" has a war movie engaged me this much, David Ayer does a great job directing a war film that we haven't really seen before. When was the last time you saw a movie from the tank crew's point of view ? Fury is a dark and gritty film that shows the horrors of war in the most truthful way. All the performances were great and the action is tense and well shot. On a side note, that is a real tank they are in throughout the movie.… Full Review »
I liked it, it's a little predictable, some times it's a little hard to follow. Other times your just thrown into a scene not to sure why. But Kundo does a nice job getting you entertained, there's a little bit of a humorous undertone at times as well. All in all it's entertaining!
It should also be noted that the Action is pretty great! Fight scenes have great flow to them, no wires, no one flying around or mystical swordsman. Simply well executed fights that are just enjoyable to watch!
So all in all Kundo is just that, enjoyable! Don't think too deeply about it, don't try to find some deeper meaning, simply watch it. Enjoy each moment as it plays out before you, enjoy the story as it moves towards it's ultimate end.… Full Review »
I'm not a particular fan of the Marvel cinematic universe. In fact, besides the original Iron Man and the Avengers, I don't really care too much for it. That includes Captain America: The First Avenger, a movie that felt a little too safe and convenient at times. However...
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is an excellent thriller...
One that finally finds the proper ground for Captain America to exist without having him around just to set up the Avengers. Chris Evans finally feels right as Capt, and the movie is truly an action packed roller coaster right of enjoyment.
What's bad about the movie? Scarlett Johansen...Once again, just like in the Avengers, she just doesn't fit into this super hero universe. She fails to deliver every humorist lines she is given, to the point is just painful to hear. This would not be such a big problem if she wasn't always there! The movie should be called, Captain America & Black Widow: The Winter Soldier....
For Captain America 3, drop the Black Widow character. She slows things down and often just spoils moments. Nevertheless, I truly did enjoy The Winter Soldier!… Full Review »
Gareth Edwards has a very promising future, and his film Godzilla serves as a perfect example of that. Although not a cinematic masterpiece by any means, Godzilla is in fact a monster-filled extravaganza that when the monsters are on screen (either Godzilla or the Muto's) is truly excellent. The Kaijus look fantastic and every shot feels like a painting of perfect coloring and composition.
Then, there's the human factor of the movie. Which holds it back from achieving excellent. I refuse to accept this tag-on human stories just because its "big budget Hollywood". That doesn't mean anything at all.
A lot of people complain that Godzilla is not in the movie often enough. That's true, yet there's no shortage of Monster mayhem thanks to the presence of the Mutos. Which are a fantastic addition to the roster of Kaijus in Godzilla's lore.
I honestly can't wait for a sequel to this movie. But as it stands, Pacific Rim is a better Kaiju movie overall, but when Godzilla is good and the monsters are on screen, it beats Pacific Rim. Yet, it's obvious that unlike Pacific Rim, Godzilla was not intended to be a pure Kaiju movie. It was intended to be part that and mostly a disaster movie. Which is not bad if the human aspect of the story was better...… Full Review »
I just watched this on iTunes, tricked into believing that it was a good movie by the Tomatometer, its Average Rating and the good Metacritic score... and I have once again lost faith in all of these aggregate ratings. There were a few good jokes in this movie, but that's really the only positive thing I can think of. The movie is largely predictable, and when it's not that's only because of a) a ridiculously unbelievable turn of events, or b) a huge plot hole. The writing is just plain stupid and infantile. Unfortunately the acting is bad too - with Brie Larson as Molly being the _only_ exception, but she hardly gets any screen time.
All in all this is a dumb, unfunny, superfluous film. Don't believe any of the 8/9/10 ratings.… Full Review »
