Ant-Man - A pretty good film. Not as good as Avengers, Cap, or Guardians, but still a fun film.

I do think the editing was a bit slipshod, though. The camera seemed to move far too fast.

One thing I was wondering though is, where did the police guys go? They find out about Hank Pym and then disappear until the final act. Surely they could look up Pym's address and head there. And is the movie seriously trying to tell me that Scott managed to master the Ant-Man suit in a couple hours?

Coming off the hype of Evo and the excitement for the Street Fighter V beta I decided to watch some Street Fighter movies. I rewatched the Street Fighter II anime movie and the Street Fighter live-action movie. I hated the live-action movie when it first came out, but over time I started to like it for it's goofiness.

But this was the first time I watched The Legend of Chun Li. It wasn't a complete disaster, but it doesn't seem like something I will grow more fond of over time. I liked Balrog, and I liked Nash's cheesiness. At least I hope Nash hamming it up was something that was intended. Some of his lines sounded like things Leon Kennedy would say in the Resident Evil 4 video game.

The thing I couldn't look past was their re-imagining of Bison. I enjoyed him a bit more when a quarter of the way through the movie I started pretending he was Geese Howard. It made me laugh when he countered someone's strike by catching it, and throwing them across the room.

It makes me want to give the King of Fighters movie a second chance. I turned it off after 10 minutes. I thought "That's Iori?" and gave up.

Saving Private Perez. It looked interesting, but wasn't very funny. Pretty exciting though. Jaime Camil was very competent.

Great movie overall, but the ending was weird. Why didn't he just pull out the knife that was in his chest? Her leaving the kid in the room was not surprising at all, it was to show us that it's really just a robot with no real thoughts and feelings.

 

4.5/5

The Host. Not bad at all! Espected way worse judging from the reviews.

 

Saoirse is a really good actress. One of these days I will learn how to pronounce her name correctly. :D/

^ Thought you meant the excellent Korean monster film 'The Host'. Now that's how you make a creature feature.

Gangs of Wasseypur:

 

A 5 and a half-hour gangster epic. You see the cycle of violence between these two families which span decades. The direction and camera work is excellent.Great performances from everyone. Don't let the run-time deter you,since the film never feels padded out at all.

Watched a bit of Riot, a movie that dramatizes the 1992 LA Riots from 23 years ago. Saw the Latino portion, where a kid basically goes through a downward spiral, following his base impulses and not seeing where it has led him, including losing his friends. That section also showed the beginning of the Asian portion, as when riots happen, the Asian residents who own their podunk businesses also get destroyed. And saw a little bit of the White part, this is where I rolled my eyes. Luke Perry played a divorced cop who was sleeping with Lucy Liu on the side.

Had a free rental on google play movies for owning a chrome cast. Wish i'd watched it sooner as I really liked it. 

 

While I was constantly trying to figure out what happened next, it did surprise me a few times, but I worked out what the ending would be. It could've easily fell into a typical hollywood ending but I am very glad it didn't.

Watched the last Hobbit Movie: Battle of Five Armies. A grand movie, even if Legolas' scenes were so video game-y. I would've seen it in theaters if Denny's had the Hobbit Meals that year.

Saw Mission: Impossible 5 to waste time before DBZ:RF. I actually enjoyed it. It was refreshing to have an action movie without 50 explosions in it and I liked the chemistry of the four main characters. Had never seen any of the previous four films aside from the CinemaSins videos, but how exactly was Hunt able to put the key card in bis mouth without expelling his oxygen?

Chappie - Finally watched it and really got into it. There was a lot of dumb stuff that happened, but I really enjoyed it a lot.

Godzilla:Final Wars

 

Mixed bag. It comes off a two films edited together. All the Godzilla scenes feel tacked on. I got a lot of laughs from the films attemepts at being "cool"(the motorcycle fight scene was absolutely hilarious). The whole production really comes an Asylum film. The monster designs are great,but you got some really bad videogame level CGI in there. Could've used some editing since this runs for 2 hours,which a film like this doesn't need to be that long.

Sesame Street on HBO, sure it's a win for PBS, meaning more funding. But it's indicative of how desperate public television is. Won't somebody think of the children?!

Watched Tomorrow Never Dies on TV today, fun movie. I just learned that the guy who played Dr. Kaufman, Vince Schiavelli, passed away 10 years ago, despite me seeing him in so many things. Michelle Yeoh was bad ass as usual. Teri Hatcher, of course HAWT.

 

Today is Richard Armitage's birthday. He's on tv right now as the Red Dragon in Hannibal, or Thorin from the Hobbit movies. I'm sure he's in plenty of films. But some sick person on the CW decided to air TWO movies starring Hugh Dancy (Will Graham), Confessions of a Shopaholic and Ella Enchanted.

Terminator genisys was pretty good, definitely better than 3 & salvation. Hope this current storyline continues.

The Quartermass Experiment:

Classic Hammer horror film.Has good acting and a solid script. Does a great job of building tense without dragging on.John Carpenter was obviously influenced by this film when doing his remake of 'The Thing',considering the creature is similar to the design of 'The Thing' at the end of that film.

 

Enter The Ninja:

 

Pretty damn funny. Only in the 80's could you have a middle-aged Italian man playing a ninja. I don't understand why the hell they got Franco Nero for the role; the man looks so bored(can't blame him since he's dubbed the entire time). The fight choreography is hilariously stiff,along with having bad editing(makes Nero's stunt double even more obvious). I loved the main villain,who just chews the hell outta of the scenery. It's pretty funny Cannon Group schlock at the end of the day. It has one best death scenes in a film.

Watched two Dragon Ball Z movies. Wrath of the Dragon (only TWO scenes with a dragon), and Fusion Reborn (wuh?). They do make okay tv filler if syndication was worth a damn these days.
