REVIEW: ‘GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2’

Let’s be honest, you’re not gonna wait for anyone’s opinion or recommendation on this movie. Chances are, you’ve already seen it, and if you haven’t, you know you’re not gonna wait for reviews, that shit is already on your calendar.

BUT if you’re still here, well, let me just say that GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is FUCKING AWESOME! Continue reading REVIEW: ‘GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2’

REVIEW: ‘COLOSSAL’, A Movie You Should Definitely See!

Honestly I knew nothing about this movie going in. Well, that’s not entirely true, I knew next to nothing. All I had was a random bit I happened across where you see Anne Hathaway motioning to Jason Sudeikis in the movie to show she’s controlling the monster.

When I saw that, don’t know what it was that sparked, but I was all, “I don’t know what you are, but I must WATCH YOU!”

And I am so glad I did. Because the movie is INCREDIBLE! Continue reading REVIEW: ‘COLOSSAL’, A Movie You Should Definitely See!

REVIEW: ‘GHOST IN THE SHELL’

So GHOST IN THE SHELL opens this weekend, and I’ll say right off the jump, I wish I had better things to say about it.

GHOST IN THE SHELL has been one of a handful of movies lately that has been under fire for whitewashing in Hollywood. In this case, Asians. But, me, being an Asian-American and a fan of the source material, I ended up being okay with the casting for reasons I mentioned previously on this site. And I have been really looking forward to this movie, especially considering how much of a fan I am of the creator, Masamune Shirow.

But as for the whitewashing, I’ll get into that later.

As for the movie itself? Well, I can best describe it as, “meh”. Continue reading REVIEW: ‘GHOST IN THE SHELL’

REVIEW: Quick and Dirty Review of ‘DOCTOR STRANGE’

Honestly, I debated writing a review for DOCTOR STRANGE, cause let’s be honest, MARVEL is pretty much just printing money at the box-office these days. So no matter what people write, chances are, you’re gonna see it. Cause, well, it’s MARVEL, and you’re curious.

Hey, no shame in the game.

Thoughts on Hollywood Inclusion… and, You Know, a Review on ‘KUBO’!

So I have to be honest, I did not want to like this movie. I mean, Laika movies have always been hit & miss with me. Don’t get me wrong, ALL of them are incredibly BEAUTIFUL pieces of animation. But add the story, and looking at the films as a whole, they’ve always been a little hit & miss.

I Guess We Know How Data Would Store His Data in the 21st Century!

We can only hazard a guess how data is transferred in the 24th century world of STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION.

But however it worked, the Enterprise-D still relied on iso-linear chips, or it’s version of flash drives, to share data. Continue reading I Guess We Know How Data Would Store His Data in the 21st Century!

REVIEW: SUICIDE SQUAD

So SUICIDE SQUAD opens this weekend, and I have to say, saying this movie is highly anticipated is an understatement. Warner Bros. definitely has NOT had a strong track record with DC movies, especially since the success of MARVEL’s AVENGERS. It does seem like Warner Bros. has been playing catch up ever since. And after Christopher Nolan’s BATMAN movies, it seems like their DC movies have been miss, after miss, after miss.

But then SUICIDE SQUAD had been green lit. And though I can’t speak for everyone else, for me? I have been SO LOOKING FORWARD to this movie. Not to make comparisons to MARVEL, but I kind of looked at it as their GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Something that could sit outside of the main mythology, and something the studio, cast and crew could have fun with, and hopefully would translate into a solid movie.

Now production news, like the reshoots that were reportedly ordered to add more “comedy”, and the early reviews that stated it was worse than BATMAN v SUPERMAN, definitely left me a little dishearten to go see this.

But make up your own mind, right?

Now I will say, before you get into the main review, I will warn you I MIGHT get into SPOILER territory. Not intentionally, but it might happen. So if you don’t want to risk that, here’s a quick blurb I gave a friend when he asked what I thought…

…it DEFINITELY had it’s issues. But don’t think it was as bad as a lot of the summarized responses you’ve might’ve seen online. But yea, definitely had it’s issues as a movie. But I did enjoy it WAY more than BATMAN v SUPERMAN, and I didn’t feel like I wasted my time.

But if you want me to build on that? Check out the review after the jump. Continue reading REVIEW: SUICIDE SQUAD
