Movies You've Seen (or would like to see) Recently

Recommended Posts

Geostorm and Jigsaw.

 

Neither were as bad as I thought they would be, both start off well but fizzle out over the last act.

John Wick 2 - it was a ton of fun, can't wait for the 3rd.

I thought it was absolute ****, with good stunt work. 

 

I like how a bourbon, a rocket launcher, or a room for the night is all one gold coin. Everything is one gold coin. Better not buy too many sticks of gum Mr Wick.

I think you are overthinking the gun fu movie. I mean, you can also wonder why people only have kevlar suits when it fits the plot, but that would be silly. :p

I thought the second movie wasn't that good. Still good, but not as good as the first. Felt to me like nothing really happened.. everything was just there to make for a longer movie and to set up a third one.

The Matrix curse all over again... eh?  I haven't seen Wick 2. 

 

(Of course... It's not the Matrix Curse... It's the Bill & Ted curse that afflicted the Matrix.)

Still need to see this. I also need to see The Raid 2. Man I've been slacking.

Wick 2 is basically a revenge movie where you don't care about who lives and who dies. You gotta make me care, otherwise all the asplosions, all the headshots. It's all completely pointless.

 

In Wick 1 Theon Grayjoy kicked a puppy to death. I could totally get behind him needing to die.

Thor: Ragnarok.

 

Instant favourite MCU film. Beats Winter Soldier, Civil War, Avengers and Guardians IMO. Perfect action-comedy with a real old-school comic book aesthetic.

The Karate Kid is about Kesuke Miyagi, an immigrant who fought against his own people in World War II, while his wife lost a child in an internment camp.

Is that what happened to his wife and kid? I rewatched that movie just a few months ago and its still as good to me as the first time, but I never understood the backstory of the scene of him getting drunk while Daniel was over.

 

Or did I just take the bait?

This movie looks to be what 10,000 BC should have been.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

 I don't know why I cried, I guess I'm a sucker for dog movies even though I never see them since I dread thinking that the dog might die.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Thor Ragnarok

 

While I watched it, I thought it was pretty good, but on reflection, not much depth, it felt more like a parody, with all the comedy, great SFX, Blanchette is very good in it too, but overall, a bit meh.

I don't blame you. I will never again watch Marley and Me :(

Finally got around to watching Alien:Covenant.

 

The first 40ish minutes had me mildly interested but as soon as they reached the planet I started groaning at all the horror-101 stupidity cliches. Send nearly all of your crew down. No helmets. "Trick" ending things that trick no one in the audience. They even had a shower scene for crying out loud. I had to pause the movie twice and putter in the kitchen for a few minutes each time in order to tolerate it. The aliens, visuals, music/sound effects were effective/good and Katherine Waterson at least convinced me her chr. had some common sense. Fassbender's performance, just like in Prometheus, is the main draw of this film. Did I hate the movie? No. It just wasn't good/distracting enough to be able to make me ignore the idiocy, like some movies can/do. I mean I can rewatch the original Alien and have more sympathy for every single one of those crew members than I did for anyone in Covenant. Talk about death by number.

 

The David character kept making me think of Asimov's R. Daneel Olivaw chr. A psychotic with delusions of grandeur version, of course but...I wonder if that was a somewhat intentional influence or if it's just that such themes re: artificial/created beings have become rather universal. I'd still kill for a good mini-series or movie trilogy of one or more of the Robot Novels, and Fassbender might make a pretty good Daneel. Not sure who would play Elijah Baley tho. :)
