A Short Critique on Thor Ragnarock

Hello everybody. I just got out of the theater from seeing the new Thor movie and wanted to share both my immediate and some what kind of thought out thoughts (this made no sense) on what I just saw.

thor-ragnarok-poster-main

What I just saw was not a bad movie by any stretch of the imagination. The action was solid, the writing was good along with the acting. But while the writing was good, I felt it didn’t fit the characters that were shown on screen. It also didn’t fit some of the situations the story portrayed.  The tone that was also set by the writing also didn’t feel quite right. It felt rather inconsistent especially with the actions and dialogue provided by some of the characters, namely Thor and Hulk along with Loki and the newly introduced Korg.

Spoilers ahead. Do not read any further if you haven’t watched the movie yet.

Don’t Breathe Movie Review

Wow this movie was so intense, I almost fought the movie screen during one of the scares. Which is my usual reaction during horror movies cause I fucking hate horror movies.

Batman The Killing Joke Animated Movie Review

Batman The Killing Joke. One of the most famous or infamous (based on how you feel about the whole thing) Batman comics of all time has been animated into its own movie. The comic which came out back in 1988 was a one shot comic attempting to delve into the insanity and background of the perhaps most famous comic book villain of all time in The Joker. The Joker had been around for more than 4 decades at the time and had never had a story delving into his origin and how he came to be (I think). And that’s the key we gotta think about when it comes to this story.

This. Is. A. Joker. Story.

Suicide Squad = Most Meh Comic Book Movie of 2016

Suicide Squad. DC’s next cinematic universe attempt is here at last and it was okay. After the clusterfuck disaster that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC needed a good project to restore some faith that was lost for the DC Cinematic Universe. I think they did okay with this entry. They didn’t do as good as I hoped but they didn’t do nearly as bad as the critics made it out to be. When I found out this movie was scoring LESS than BvS, I was getting a little scared. You would have to be really hard pressed to be able to make more of a mess than BvS but SS wasn’t that bad. It was enjoyable at times with decent characters, good action and….that’s pretty much it. I can’t say I was a big fan of the story because I felt like it didn’t fit with the characters that were being used. There will be some minor spoilers that were shown in some of the trailers for the movie so be aware. Let’s get down to it.

Hardcore Henry is Hardcore Fun

Excuse the horrible title but it’s honestly the best way to describe the movie without spoiling it and sounding like a wannabe critic at the same time.  We’re gonna keep this short and sweet and go straight to talking about the movie. Hardcore Henry is an action movie filmed in the first person perspective so it’s pretty often likened to popular video games like Doom, Halo and Call of Duty. If you haven’t heard about the movie, check out a trailer on Youtube and hopefully be impressed.

Uhhh, I’m gonna attempt to actually make this review SPOILER FREE because I enjoyed it so much I would like other people to enjoy it without spoiling my favorite parts of the movie.

Justice League vs Teen Titans: Another Mediocre DC Animated Feature.

 

Justice League vs Teen Titans. The latest DC animated movie continues a long string of mediocre DC animated features since DC opted to include the DC animated universe in the whole new 52 reboot and man has the overall quality gone down as a result. I was born in 1992 so I ended up growing up with the DC animated universe being formed from Batman the Animated Series, Superman the Animated Series and of course the Justice League. In addition to that, we had shows like the Teen Titans, Static Shock and oh yeah Batman Beyond.  Man, what a time to be alive. In addition to those shows, we also had a decent string of animated movies that accompanied them such as Superman/Batman Public Enemies, Justice League Crisis on Two Earth, Batman: Under the Red Hood, All Star Superman, Justice League Doom and Batman the Dark Knight Returns.  I honestly believe those shows and most of the movies captured the essence of the characters they featured. Superman the big blue boy scout, Batman the brooding loner, Wonder Woman, the headstrong and beautiful warrior and so on and so forth. So you can kinda see why I think the current line of DC animated movies are kinda…okay. They use the New 52 versions of the DC characters rather than the ones that have been around for quite a bit now so they don’t quite have the same feel. So now with some backstory on how I feel about the animated universe in general, let’s move on to the review. I will attempt to make this review spoiler free so let’s do this.

Batman V Superman is not a proud beginning to the DC Cinematic Universe

Batman V Superman Dawn of Disappointment Justice. 3 years of hype and the movie is finally here. Unfortunately all the hype is what ultimately leads to its downfall. It’s definitely not the worst superhero movie out there (go see X-Men Origins Wolverine) but it takes the task of establishing multiple characters for a brand new cinematic universe and fails on multiple fronts. Here is my review of the movie using a simplistic structure:

Story. Pros. Cons. Final Verdict.

There will be SPOILERS so if you don’t want to read that, leave now! Let’s begin.
