Mania Review: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Article) - 4/4/2014 12:12:13 PM

Saw the movie last night! WOOOOW! Loved it. The whole spy movie / espionage angle worked very well! Especially with that score! I definitely want the Russo brothers back for Cap 3. The opening scene with Cap on the stealth mission is sick as hell! Widow action scenes are bad ass. They show a sweet booty shot too that can't escape my mind. The hand to hand combat with Winter Soldier altough really cool, was cut/edited way too quick in some spots, but as a whole it was awesome. Yeah I'm using a lot of exclamation marks but this movie deserves it. All the actors were spot on. I'm not a huge fan of Sam Jackson because I feel like he speaks the same and acts the same in every movie lately, but I enjoyed him in this film. Something different about his approach.

As much as I loved this movie I still think going up against Superman v. Batman is a mistake. Cap was amazing but IDK I feel like Supes v. Bats is gonna kill at the box office.

 

The Walking Dead: A Review (Article) - 3/31/2014 4:30:17 PM

I thought there was some good parts, Terminus was good. The flashback scenes were good, but I really hope the show-runner for this second half of this season doesn't come back for Season 5. This was the least enjoyed season for me.

DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES - Official TV Spot #1 (Article) - 3/31/2014 3:21:12 PM

Escape and Conquest are my two favs. The orginal doesn't hold up for me, and Battle was my least favorite. Anyway the first one of this franchise (Rise) was awesome, and I'm looking forward to this one. BTW I'm a huge POTA fan!

It looks like they may be showing more of the human side in this one. The first one was all apes, this might be a mixed bag of who's side we're suppose to root for, and then maybe the third film is the all out war! Or maybe this is the all out war, and the third one is when the space ship comes back, and the people inside pop out and are like "WTF!?" 

Mania Review: Noah (Article) - 3/28/2014 12:41:56 PM

This movie was awesome. I don't know if it's an A for me, I would say maybe a B or A-. ONLY because the CGI for the animals wasn't amazing to me. Only the close up shots of the CGI animals were cool, but the large shots looked so fake I couldn't shake it. I'm not one to bash CGI often, but for me it wasn't what I thought it would look like on the big screen. 

I loved this movie, it reminded me and inspired me to learn more and read more about related subjects.

Also I loved the way Darrenofsky incorporated evolution with what Genesis says about Day 1 and Day 2, etc. of the creation of the universe. It was very cool to see that!

First Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch IMAGES from Avengers 2 (Article) - 3/26/2014 2:22:43 PM

Quicksilver looks like he's playing Patrick Swayze's character in Point Break prequel. Haha, just messing.

Black Widow Clip from Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Article) - 3/26/2014 12:22:33 PM

man, ScarJo is looking great! Better than she looked in Avengers IMO. I still think she's a miscast, but she's looking mighty good!

The Walking Dead: The Grove Review (Article) - 3/18/2014 2:19:45 PM

@invisioner if your last paragraph is what the showrunners decide to go with, that would be pretty bad@ss! It's been done before of course, but it's not something I would expect from Walking Dead, and that's why I can dig that idea. But then again I'm not sure how that would move the story foward, and that's the most important thing.

This episode was great one, it was pretty deep, and all the actors hit the points. Unlike Carl for example who can get on my nerves, the little girl lizzie even though she was messed up, the actress that plays her is great, so that annoyance doesn't hit me like it does from the actor playing Carl.

 

The Boxtrolls: Trailer #3 (Article) - 3/7/2014 10:29:32 AM

Same here, I saw the behind the scenes trailer in front of Lego Movie. That trailer alone has me at the theatre for this one! Besides the fact that I love stop-motion as well lol.

The Walking Dead: Still Review (Article) - 3/4/2014 12:27:55 PM

This episode was a mixed bag for me. The intro I thought was pretty good with no talking. I knew it was just an intro and I accepted it, thinking the rest would be bad as_. Pretty much the whole golf club section was my least favorite. That could have been cut out, and was definitely filler.

I feel like it's a combination of writing and directing, or maybe the director is lacking enough material from the writers. I say this because the scene with Carl in the beginning episode where he lures the zombies away from the house - that scene and shot went on way too long. They even film him falling down, struggling to get up, and then seeing a zombie behind him all in one shot. It was dragged out big time.

Dang, Kevin Hart better get ready for all the sequels he's going to have. He's killing it right now.
