Just saw Ant-Man in theaters the other day. Don't put me down for saying this, but it may have been better than Avengers Age of Ultron.

Age of Ultron wasn't that great. I can't wait to see Ant-Man!

The Fall.

 

A beautiful mess of a movie.

Which "The Fall"? There are three movies from the last twenty years with that name.

 

The Lee Pace one.

 

Sort of The Princess Bride for pretentious people and/or people who like practical effects.

Drive.

 

A very enjoyable and stylish film. Really enjoyed Ryan Gosling's performance too.

In theaters: Ant Man (Very pleasant suprise to be honest, I thought I'd be sick of these superhero movies by now, but Marvel really proved me wrong, I went in expecting a dumb heist movie, and that's what I got, but it was a lot more fun than I expected)

On DVD: Rewatching The Grand Budapest Hotel last night, god do I love that movie.

Bionicle: The Legend Reborn. I must say, it really doesn't hold up.

Rurouni Kenshin 2: Kyoto Inferno

 

Much like the first one, it's a surprisingly good live-action adaptation of the anime/manga, which captures the spirit of those original works very well.

Thankfully they decided to split the Kyoto arc into two movies, rather than trying to cover all of it in just one, which means they don't have to cut as much from the anime/manga, although some cuts I guess are still unavoidable.

 

So this is the first of the two Kyoto movies, and I did like it a great deal, although not quite as much as the first film. There's definitely some details missing from the originals here and there which are very noticeable in their absence, but for the most part they did a good job with remaining faithful to the source material. Action sequences were great, and there weren't too many of them either, and pretty much all of the cast did an excellent job portraying their characters. Plus, the soundtrack is once again bloody excellent.

 

Having said that though, I definitely have several issues with the movie. The biggest of them is actually the same issue I had with the first movie - the character of Aoshi. With the first one, my complaint was that for some reason they didn't include him in the movie at all, despite including pretty much everything else relating to his role in that arc. I still find his absence from that movie to be completely bizarre.

Now, with him being very important in the Kyoto arc, they had to include him this time around. However, him not being in the first film means that he didn't get the introduction and backstory he had in the anime/manga, and they sort of had to awkwardly come up with a reason for him to be there. So he just kinda shows up out of nowhere, and they took his original backstory and changed some things around to try and justify his sudden appearance. Which unfortunately doesn't work very well at all, and his motives for hunting Kenshin basically make no sense. Then on top of that, his actual character is done very poorly. In the original, he was an intriguing tragic hero who went through a very compelling character arc. In this movie he's... well, he's just kind of a **** without any real character beyond that. It's really disappointing to see how they handled this character. I'd like to hope that the next movie improves on it, but the damage is already done.

 

Still, I really enjoyed the movie otherwise, and it definitely succeeded in making me feel nostalgia for the anime/manga, which I'll probably have to go re-watch/re-read soon. Before I do that though, I am eagerly awaiting the next movie, which gets released here on DVD in just over a week. I'll certainly be picking that one up.

Ex Machina

 

Well, that was quite an excellent film.

 

Though I must say, I bought it on DVD and was rather annoyed to find that it had four trailers on it before the actual movie started. Skippable thankfully, but only skippable one by one. I thought it being 2015 and all, we were long past that silly nonsense, but I guess some companies still fail to grasp the concept of not annoying the heck out of the consumer, and not making them reconsider their decision to actually buy the movie instead of acquiring it through other, annoyance-free means.

Shutter. AKA the most generic, predictable horror movie you'll ever see

It has been a while since I have commented in this topic. Since then I have seen a few movies. Lets see if I can remember them all.

Mad Max: Fury Road. Awesome, no, epic movie. I wish I saw it in theaters twice. Watching this made me watch for the first time...

Mad Max. EXTREMELY slow, though it does give good background information on its 21st Century sequel.

Avengers: Age of Ultron. Some problems with the movie that others have pointed out (where did the thing with Banner and Romanof come from?!), but I loved the discussions concerning theology, and the relationship between Ultron and Vision was felt mythological (like Mata Nui and Makuta).

Jurassic World. Average-to-great movie, though some parts felt forced to show the remains of Jurassic Park. The Indominus Rex was pretty cool and kind of scary if you think about it (movie didn't scare me though, just thrilled me). Sometimes though the movie felt like a forced overglorified monster movie. I told my brother and mother something: as God created humanity, though corrupted, His image can still be seen in us. Similarly, humanity and its evil, destructive and cold nature (it was humanity's evil of greed that caused its creation) can be reflected off of the Indominus Rex.

Inside Out. Great movie, also the first Pixar movie I've seen in theaters since Wall-E.

Escape From Alcatraz. Fantastic film, was also great to see the source of so many prison-based stories and spoofs.

The Last of the Mohicans. One of my favorite books and movies. Perfect as always, though near the end from the Huron chief discussion to the end of the movie my dog kept whining, resulting in the movie experience being ruined and me yelling at her. Stupid dog...
