It s a good enough movie to waste time, entertaining enough to not be bored. But if you have something more important to do, go do it. It is a Rowan Atkinson movie too, those who like him will like the movie (like me, even if my score doesn t show it), those who don`t will do better to sit this one out if you are not curious or do mind wasting time on a okay movie.
Underrated movie is underrated. Comment must be 5 words.
Season 4 is the best so far, it is funnier and looser, it doesn't take itself that seriously and they did try some different types of jokes (with the usual bad ones here and there). But overall is a great season compared with the other four. The first season was pretty introductory and Reverse Flash was just annoying since we don't really know what truly motivates him so worse villain so far. The second season's villain was zoom, he was more interesting and better structured and developed. Savitar was also interesting. DeVos, however, manages to take the cake of best flash villain from this so-so TV series, I'm a sucker for plots "corruption of the good intended".
This is by far anything better than what we have from The CW DC series, not even Arrow Season 5 (which I admittedly found it pretty good with a villain that was in did stronger than the MC). I already know Thomas Wayne was Batman in the alternate timeline because of spoilers (this is an old movie) and wasn't that surprised by it. But the ending did surprise me quite a bit.
Funny how the best soccer movie of all time is Chinese, its genre is Comedy and there is plenty of "Kung Fu" or the funny equivalent of it. It is unique and quite different from most western comedy movies and that makes for a pretty funny and nonsensical movie, especially since it doesn't take itself seriously.
Arrow can be considered just another CW Series, and it really is, so if you want to watch it, keep in mind what you'll get. If you usually don't like CW type of series this show may not be the one for you.
Season 5, was so far, the best one, it still a CW series with plenty of cliches and still pretty cartoonish and sometimes pretty cringy with its puns worth of a Tim Burton's Batman movie. But at the same time, Stephen Amell's acting in some key moments was really great, character development was better, the moral ambiguity of the villain and the hero is a nice contrast, Adrian Chase lose only to Deathstroke as a villain (because Deathstroke is too iconic and overshadows Adrian Chase) and the change of cast was interesting.
There is one feeling after watching this movie and it sums up with the following statement: This would be my favorite hero movie of all times if they do not resurrect everyone. Saying this, it is expected of them to come up with a solution to do exactly that, unless they really surprise us in the second installment of Infinity War. Still, if one analysis Infinity War just in itself and do not connect to past movies or the ones that will follow, Infinity War would deserve to be in everybody's top 10 superhero movies of all time.
The best superhero stories don't necessarily need the villain to win, but it is "realistic" (aka better and it feels more satisfying) when the villain's strategy is better and/or they are stronger than the heroes and they get to win because of that. It is even more satisfying when the reasoning of the villain kind of makes sense while their logic is flawed somewhere (showing the weakness of the villain), especially if the superhero and the villain agree on something but their approach is quite different to solve the problem.
There is room to argue that Thanos is one of the great villains since he has a purpose beyond just being a villain for the sake of villainy.
Holy shit, Luke Cage went from so-so to a really great TV Series. The first season was nice, but it was kind of a mess. It still felt like a Netflix/Marvel TV Series but it lack more structure and a better pace. Season two didn't fix that too much, but it did make it up by developing some characters even more and presenting with a new villain with power. There much to say about season 2, but the main thing that really did like was how it depicted a real relationship (the closest I have seen from TV) how fights can happen, how can one see things differently from different points of view, and how one can lose their temper when your loved one can't understand your point of view (I'm with Clair on this one). Another thing that I loved was how it depicted Luke's fall from grace by trying to make him mad with power.
This show is a nice surprise, there is a nice "original" plot. The only criticism is the fact that the protagonist has a sudden "grow of balls" and starts acting more confident really suddenly, if you disregard it (and some other annoyances) this Series can be quite entertaining. The villain is quite interesting too, and makes you feel angry and hate him (it is not Jack The Handsome, but he is a "fueling rage" type of villain). The "victims" and their relations to each other and the villain make you tune too. There are some nice scenes in CGI (in the game). It is interesting and should make you less bored in an "I have nothing better to do" time.
This may be a Sherlock Holmes story, but at the same time, it would be fine if they just changed the name of the characters and change it for a different series entirely. This, however, doesn't make the show bad, there are boring episodes and some great ones (looking at you S03E24 "A Controlled Descent") and Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu makes a decent job, Miller does feel like an "addicted to mystery detective and ex-addict" and Lucy Liu does look like an "ex-surgeon, now wants to be a detective (and becomes one later)". There are also plenty of nice scenes and talks about addicting, crime etc. It is entertaining, but it doesn't force you to "believe" that Sherlock Holmes is a genius, it actually kind of depicts him as more of an obsessive character than a "genius" detective (while I do agree there are some things that don't make sense), it is at least better at showing how Sherlock Holmes got to a conclusion than the TV Series "Sherlock" since they just throw the word "he is a genius" and be done with it without giving the viewers the chance to realize the conclusion (sometimes Elementary sins on this too).
Happily being one of the very few (I actually can`t think of another TV Series exploring the same theme) polyamorous romances out there, "You Me Her" manages to captivate your attention and your heart with its loving characters and cute situations. This TV Series is without a doubt a favorite of the "Romance" genre to me, together with "Love" from Judd Apatow.
The PlotDon't get me wrong, I know nothing of polyamorous relationships (nor monogamous relationships either), but for me, this TV Series manages to explore the doubts and insecurities that people in a polyamorous relationship goes through. They explore the insecurities of being just a third wheel ( like Jack in the second Season and Izzy in the third ), the insecurities and fears to face society (not that they explicitly show any strong prejudice) and some other details like friends judging you because of your relationship decisions etc.It is wildly interesting plot, while it does rely on cliches its cuteness and its pleasant ambiance makes up for it.
The Characters, or why the cuteness extremeI can't say why, but every single character in this TV Series are loving and caring, they may have their quirkiness and their weaknesses but they overall care for each other. It is a nice change from the base overgrowing post-modern cynical TV Series appearing all over the place like everything on Adult Swim (which I do like, but sometimes its tiresome to always question if things have meaning or not).Even if I stated that I can say that during the first season I actually didn't like the protagonists Jack and Emma's judgmental friends, but they grow up and stuff doing it.
The SoundtrackThere is very few TV Series that manages to catch my attention with its soundtrack, this is, unfortunately, not one.
Final ThoughtsWhile I regard this as one of my favorite "light romcom" TV Series, I still see some minor flaws, but its positive message and its interesting subject, while cliched, make up for it. It is a nice romance that everyone should watch.
This show is the perfect example - together with The 100 - of how a show can come from mediocre to really good just taking risks and experimenting. From Ep 1-8 more or less, the show is pretty flat and horrible, it is a generic cop drama with a little twist, it is the same as Blindspot, Lucifer (and don't get me wrong, I still like it) and any other crime-solving show with a hint of conspiracy in the main plot. From Ep 9 and so on, they start slowly changing their tactics and experimenting with the show, they purposely twist cliches to try surprising the viewer. While the show in its end is still far from a masterpiece or any real great tv series, it is still a way better series than when it started.
This is the what one would call the Golden Age of Cartoons, I would call it more like the roots, the beginning, the Cartoon: Origins. Tom and Jerry are and always is on the same Top 10 Cartoons of all time for me, together with the other classics like Looney Tunes and Woody Woodpecker. But I still haven't decided if I would show this for my kids or any other kid because some episodes are kind outdated and need some explaining so kids understand that things were different during the 40s-60s and what we consider wrong today weren't consider in those days.
I understood nothing of this show, I like some of the conversations, I do not agree with the assumption that no way can get better and even if the show comes down on religious extremism they end up doing the opposite in the third season.
Considering that the show starts with the trope of "a part of the population goes missing" and it develops from there, I can't really say after watching all 3 seasons that I don't know how they go missing, why they go missing and even if they are dead. The third season was the weirder of them all to me. And besides the ending, all characters end up a fuck up and by that I mean they don't get better at all.
The conversations and talks about grief got me interested, the character development is nice, and acting is really good. Especially Matt who made such a poor job with as a Doctor Who protagonist and the main villain of Thor 2.
And the religious aspect of the show got really confusing because I can't say if it is all real, if they are hallucinating it all or that whatever.
Rick and Morty manage to be an original piece while being based on Back to the Future. In an age where most TV shows manage to struggle to keep it generically entertaining, Rick and Morty give us what could be the equivalent of Absurd Comedy mixed with Dark Humor and a hint of gratuitous violence and it became one of the most successful cartoons for adults of the 2010s. Its humor is bold, gruesome at times, hilarious fart jokes at medium and some deep questions that make your skin crawl at best. This is the type of show where the viewer chooses what kind of they want themselves to be, if you wish to watch the show just for the absurdism of their adventure, that is great, watching just for the fart jokes and references? also great! One can even watch Rick and Morty paying attention to its philosophical equivalent theories of what they debate on each episode.
In the end, Rick and Morty is the go-to cartoon for grown-ups.
As a skeptical person, the preachy tone of the movie kind of annoys me, not enough to make me stop, but it does make me have a more biased opinion about such religious thriller/suspense. In one hand I found the scary scenes really boring and in no way scary, in the other hand, the point that if a person lives a life of mainly hedonistic pleasures won't find happiness is something I believe as well. While I'm not the norm, one doesn't need to be religious to avoid alcoholic beverages, the use of heavy drugs and other hedonistic pleasures.
That said, the part where one doesn't need the church to be religious was actually a nice message. One does not need an institutionalized religion/church to be religious and/or spiritual. Being an agnostic atheist doesn't make one already a hater of religion in itself (especially since I also take some of its teachings - and from other religions - to heart) but it does make me wary of such organized religious groups like the Catholic Church, or cults like the Church of Scientology.
Regardless of such ideological and moralistic debate, this movie didn't age well, especially if you identify yourself as an atheist, agnostic or whatever definition based on skepticism and rationality to heart. Hell, I don't think that even a religious person would like this movie that much, regardless of its position of organized religion.
The fact that this movie destroyed the carrier of Tod Browning (Dracula) amazes me. The idea of the movie is really innovative for the 20s, even if the original picture is considered to be even more brutal and totally different from this shorter final version and for that, I will not consider what is told about the original script.
The plot has been said to be predictive, and it is, it is also said to be unrealistic, which is not. There is no fantasy in a person taking advantage of another in a situation of one-sided love. Hans loves Cleopatra, a man with Dwarfism loves the epitome of beauty which is represented by Cleopatra, she, knowing that can manipulate him easily, takes advantage of that, I can't see how is that fantastical.
Though the movie depicts the Olga's and Henry Victor's character as the villains, I didn't feel that only the beauty and "normal" people are actually villains since there is Venus, a character that I found it rather likable, especially with its opening scene showing her dumping Hercules, and Phroso character is also likable. A clown that is kind to everyone in the circus. Even the scene that least like with Phroso - him forgetting his date with Venus or him getting too flirty with the twins for the sake of entertainment - is not horrible. I still find Venus the most likable character.And from here we have the one being fooled, Hans. From the start of the movie, I didn't even have a chance to see him as a lovable character. While he states, in the beginning, his love for Frieda, he ends up marrying Cleoprata. This makes him unlikable to a certain degree, while at the same time understandable for why he got so psychotic in the ending.
There is also the secondary characters, Roscoe seems a jackass and because of that I didn't get what one of the Twins saw in him, his best scene being when the other Twin's fiance appears and he is actually polite for once - which it doesn't make him any more of a douche. I didn't find the scenes of the "freaks" entertaining, but I did like the scene of Schlitze and Phroso. And for the least the worse, those fat asses that kept antagonizing everyone in the circus and that scene where Hercules punches Josephine Joseph without any kind of consequence.
The ending was actually bad, not the scene where Hercules gets its due or Cleopatra - whatever the hell happens to her, but the added scene where Frieda forgives Hans for his foolishness. And I also found it to be extremely weird the scene where they show what happens to Cleopatra, she turned into a chicken? WTF happened? Weird ass ending for me.
Amazing. This is the epitome of great cartoon. I also found it to be better than the originals but only because the originals stretch the story too much and some times it gets boring. But this is also expected of a children's cartoon. I also loved the fact this one is a little more mature. Aishi is also interesting and has a similar charisma to Jack's, though Jack is still the protagonist. This is beyond fantastic. This is what Cartoon Network gets for trusting basically the same team as that of the original.
While I like Zoey Deschanel and Alan Cumming, this is really bad. I mean, is not shitty but is not good either. Zoey's acting style (basically her being her own character) feels that she doesn't belong to this fantastical setting. She fits like a glove in her own TV Series New Girl, but here it makes her character looks like an outsider since she acts differently than those around her. It is like she acts in a more relaxed, "real lifey" way and the rest of the cast acts more like the generical type of a fantastical tale with seriousness in their lines.
The plot is entertaining enough, but boring most of the times. The villain is also weirdly boring. She is evil because she is evil. There is more complexity than the original story, but for a so short that complexity doesn't fit right. The ending is also cliched, but it is a bad cliche.
I have watched the trilogy (so far there is only a trilogy) and boy how glad I'm to see this saga only improve. I found the first one shitty, but enough of that, this is a comment on this movie specifically, not the trilogy, even so, I will compare this primarily with the other two, without getting too detailed about it.
The plot continues not so short after the first movie. There is a narration in the beginning but it's not so annoying as others narrations can be. The first scene of the apes hunting was amazingly shot, I actually gasped a little, first, there is Ceasar's yell, then a moment of the prey running in despair and then the sound starts. That sound I found it so amazing and fit the scene nicely, but I don't think any director could pull something like that easily (though I'm "dummy" level when it comes to cinematography techniques).
The plot then follows slowed-paced. It is actually kind of boring at times, but this is rewarded by the emotional shit, the conflict that comes in Ceasar's understanding that Apes are just as bad as Humans.
That ending though was better than anything they put in the first movie, but not the third (even better than this one).
Even after the watching the third movie and loving more than the first two, I'm still amazed by Serkis's acting. Even with CGI, he manages to pass a great deal of emotion, that, of course, couldn't be accomplished with a shitty CGI team, so they did a really amazing job in that part.
While I was praising the sound from the opening scene I can say that its soundtrack is not that memorable and other movies, that is not to say that is bad, it's just not memorable.
Compared to the other two movies, the humans in this one is lacking something, I would say charisma, but that wouldn't be accurate. The only acting that really stands out, besides Serkis, is that of Gary Oldman. But even Gary didn't have the time for truly shine.
Finally, I must say that the first movie is good but worse than this one and this one is worse than the third one. At least in my humble opinion.
Wayne got some moves. Really funny. "Holy... Kidnapping, Batman!"
Laugh so loud my neighbors complained. Whoopi is the best! Seriously, the surprise face I was making was enough for anyone to laugh.
These guys manage to be really funny, sometimes funnier than comedy TV Series, but I'm together with Ryan, the "Hoedown" is really bad, and additionally, I don't like some of the games that use songs, though I do like it sometimes.
Come on, more heavy jokes! No "ooohhhhhhh", give them motivation for more!
I keep thinking on how Ryan looks a little like my cousin and his father, my uncle.
Drew Carrey is the host so obviously does nothing.
What is funny is that if this episode were made today, the problem would be Cosby instead of Hitler.
You really laugh out loud by watching this show.
I suppose this series is entertaining enough for a second season. While I wouldn't doubt if they decided, either way, making season 2 or canceling it, since better shows have been canceled, I doubt TNT will cancel this one. TNT doesn't have the best list of TV series out there, so this is a nice addition.
Ryan shoes and tallness, Collin baldness and shirt.
