Mania Review: Transcendence (Article) - 4/18/2014 10:01:22 AM

I wouldn't say this movie sucked, but yea I wouldn't recommend it for viewing in the theatre. The actors were all on point. The best performance was definitely Paul Bettany. There's an opening scene with Paul, and I could watch a whole film based off of that opening sequence, rather than the story of Transcendance.

Like I said it's not horrible in my eyes, but I felt like the story didn't have an overall message. Yes I get that we depend on technology, and that was shown over and over in this movie, but what Depp's character did and the anti techonolgy group, I felt didn't bring the message home. There was something else that didn't connect all the dots. Not that I need ALL the dots connected - but story wise they should be.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST - Official Final Trailer (Article) - 4/16/2014 10:49:32 AM

I think story wise this movie is going to be fine. Singer can write a good story and film it. Xavier walking has an explanation we just haven't seen the movie yet, and Quicksilver looks dumb because um yeah he's a teenager in the late 70's boom there you go. Guess who else looks dumb in their 70's clothes? Wolverine and Xavier. Beast rocks it pretty good and so does Magneto.

Singer said he's going to fix (recon) some events from X3. So that to me means something Wolverine does changes the future. My best guess is when Wolvie comes back, Jean or Scott is alive. That would be a wicked suprise.

There is something that doesn't make sense to me, but I trust the story is going to explain it. If the sentinels existed back in the late 70's why weren't they used in X1 against the mutants, and why was the Trask commercial shown after The Wolverine which takes place some years after X3. My guess is that when they are created in the 70's they go haywire (as shown in the trailer) and then they're shelved for a few decades. Trask comes back (The Wolverine) with version 2, and there you go. Mutants get blown away.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
