#13402645 Ghostbusters Reboot 2016!

Posted by ITDEFX on 15 July 2016 - 02:50 PM

Ok.

 

I saw it last night in RPX 3d and here are my non spoiler thoughts:

 

Who ever did the trailers could have really fucked up things for the movie because after seeing the first few trailers I hated the movie before I even saw it.

 

Ended up going to see it because of the so so reviews.

 

And guess what?  It is not bad at all.   I was expecting over the top stupid reactions and screaming from both McCarthy and Jones but it wasn't bad at all.   Absolutely hated the character that Helmsworth was playing.... yes it was suppose to be comic relief but just felt like he was there just to be there.   McKinnon character was just weird.  The villain was ok.   Lots of references to the original movies.   The cameos were good...with Murray getting the most screen time.  If you pay attention in the first part of the movie there is a head statue of what looks like Ramis. 

 

I say this movie could have had a darker mood with darker lighting.  

 

Now for the 3d.   For years I have been going to 3d movies off and on and have noticed either I have become immune to the effects of 3d or the 3d was so small that it wasn't even worth seeing the movie in 3d...for example things like rain or other weather effects would just be "oh meh" in 3d... but in this movie it was actually in full effect.  For the first time since I was impressed with the 3d effects in Resident Evil Afterlife (the effects not the movie), the 3d was actually pretty good.   The first thing that really popped out in 3d was the effect of that ghost from the trailer vomit sliming Wiig's character.  For the first time I actually jumped back in my seat because the vomit looked like it was coming right at me.   That has never happened to me before.   The effects actually crossed the letterbox border and even the scene where

Leslie Jones' character starts bitch slapping McCarthy, holy shit her head was just huge in 3d crossing that letterbox border. 

 

Does it have potential to make some good money this weekend?  Yes, is it better than the original, no.  Can their be a sequel?  I am sure there can be but please either get rid of Helmsworth or change his character to something less stupid. 

 

So 3.5 out of 5 stars for me.

As much as I love fallout 4 on the xb1, I will wait until it's all said and done on the PC with the season pass and wait for it to be under 20 bucks for everything on Steam.   I know the Season pass has been meh when it comes to DLC, but I want the complete experience.  Probably by the winter sale it will be that cheap.




#13267325 Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Posted by ITDEFX on 28 March 2016 - 12:43 AM

A lot of reasons why people liked Affleck's Batman vs Bale/Keaton is because the writers took elements from The Dark Knight Returns as they probably felt that the audience doesn't need another reboot or the rise of batman type of story.  However...did we really need another death of Bruce's parents scene? 

 

also , is it me or does Doomsday (Phase 1) look like

Spoiler

and that after each major hit, the thing starts mutating to something stronger just like RE games?

NO NO NO SONY!!!

 

This version of Ghostbusters is the result of Dan Aykroyd feeding us bullshit over the years about the script being worked on and so on....that everyone is on board, except Murry, who said he would only come back if he is killed off and turned into a ghost in the first 5 minutes of the movie.  I did like the idea that was mentioned where it was a passing of the torch with Peter and Dana's son taking over with a new group of GB's.   With the death of Harold Ramis  and Murry didn't want to do it, it just seem like it would have been best to leave it to die already.  Nope said SONY. Gotta milk this dead cow.

 

My wife and I saw the anniversary release 2 years ago in the theaters and although we have seen it dozens of times before, seeing it in the theaters was a nicer experience.   A movie of that era was slower paced and actually make it more enjoyable than anything we currently see.   The new movie just looks like a cluster Fuck of over done special effects (SONY enough of the obvious use of B/G Screens!!).  I don't recognize anyone except McCarthy.    Slimer looks good though.

 

I will end up seeing it just  cause my wife is a fan of McCarthy.... but it won't be the same without the old crew.

I really liked the trailer for this one.   The music was also very emotional.




#12778928 Media Streaming Device - Which One?

Posted by ITDEFX on 01 July 2015 - 10:33 AM

Yeah you could do Roku.

 

The WD TV Live has a USB port so yes you can plug in a portable hard drive and play movies off of there.  Back when I bought it, it had the highest file compatibility compared to the other streamers on the market right out of the box.

Posted by ITDEFX on 14 May 2015 - 12:16 AM

That was a pretty good first trailer.  It has potential to be a good tv series.....  How long will CBS keep it before they can it?? Who knows... I am still bitter with them over the cancellation of Jericho.

Can you imagine being the intern(s) that was given the assignment to chop every single IMAX frame for that movie?  I think that they would have hated themselves by the end of the day.

 

Honestly a cool mission patch would have been a better collectible.




#12547948 Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked Permanent Price Drop - $30

Posted by ITDEFX on 05 March 2015 - 12:28 AM

If they can expand the program by making it towards Movies 20% off that would be awesome...but this is best buy...where I have to pay them nearly $4000 to remain top tier class even though I am treated like a second class citizen in the store.  Yeah I can see them zapping that 20% and dropping it down to 15 or 10...  and even killing that 10 dollar pre-order bonus...because "We've spoken, and they have listen..."

So we just came back from the 20 week sono.....  We are having a GIRL!!! :whee:

 

After coming up with a list of names, we both agreed on Lillian Rose (and my last name).  Lillian is my grandmother's name and Rose reminds my wife of her grandmother since she often grew prize winning Roses.  I think my mom and grandmother will be super happy about this when we tell them.
