I didn't watched a Spielberg movie on theaters since...Tintin. Well, in theathers and also at home. I'm not a fan of Oscar-bait and that giant movie, well....
Continuing, I read the book a few months ago, and I decided that not even Spielberg would film a interesting movie of that material overload.
But I was encouraged by the positive reviews of fellow bloggers and nerds, so I gave it a chance. And I'm glad I lived to see a f****** Gundam beat the sh*t of a f****** MechaGodzilla!!! Most of the Oasis shots has enough easter-eggs and references to keep nerds ocuppied for a decade.
A very entertaining movie. Fun, without being dumb.
An accomplishment, ten years in the making. I have the feeling my score for it will increase in future viewings.
Full Review [Pt] cine31.blogspot.com/2018/04/avengers-infinity-war-2018.html
The second of the "stand alone" Star Wars movies, excluding the Ewoks TV Movies. The action scenes were overly exciting, but that was about it. The first Star Wars overcome his flaws with a perfect montage. Editing all the elements was key. But, on "Solo", at least at a first viewing, most of it was too sloppy. I said many times i've come to hate blurry action,and we have a few of those moments, but I guess the weakest point of the movie was how all the elements and sequences don't flow effortlessy. I know I have a tendency to overlook some bits and pieces that on a second viewing help put it all together (And at least my projection - on old 2D - was too damn dark and with poor contrast). A fewer nods and winks than expected - I least for me, a not-that-hardcore-fan - and thanks for that. Or maybe they flied over my head... About the actors, "Chewie" was perfect, "Han" was OK, I didn't feel any of that forced impersonation that some people were talking about, probably without watching the movie.
Essentially, "Solo" is just a tale of how Han, Chewie and the Millennium Falcon became friends, more a heist movie than a space opera, and I'm good with that, there's no need for everyone story to be a 6 movie ordeal ("Star Wars: Death Star's Janitor - Episode 1") Surprisingly, the connection to the bigger picture - the rebellion - wasn't that cringy... Also, "L3" would do a kick ass duo with "Chopper"!
Maybe if Ron Howard had more time to put it all together we would be looking at a more polished product. Or maybe not, I've seen only 2 or 3 of his films. Wrapping it up, it's a enjoyable movie, good for a weekend afternoon in front of the TV.
A very competent and straightforward adventure movie. Lara kicks ass.
One of those rare blockbusters with heart. They took what worked better on the first JW and built on that.
My Review [PT] cine31.blogspot.com/2018/06/jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom-2018.html
Romantic comedies are not my thing, but I watched it on a Sunday while cleaning and meddling with the insides of an old computer. Couldn't care less about the Julia Roberts poor-girl/rich-boy thing; the astronomy-girl/married-guy thing was way more interesting, even if we saw the 'shatered illusions monster' coming miles away. The potato-nose girl that runs from compromise was more fun than expected, because usually the roles are reversed.
Bonus: I'm portuguese, so any tuga-reference was LOL
Lazy and unremarkable. Didn't see the first one, but saw the trailer, so...
This sequel is enamorated with the magicians mythology and the characters grand self/fan-importance but doesn't deliver the least impressive act or illusion. We all have seen Mission Impossible and they do it better...
Points for crazy underwhelming Harry Potter, hated Woody's hat.
Delightful, unstoppable and fun adventure. The ending could be a little shorter, but overall, one of the best entries on the MI saga.
Afters years of listening to comments praysing this movie, what a big disappointment. Has charm, and a few good sequences, but the next frame all is thrown away. Teenagers are inconsistent, but, come on!
The original must be one of the most overrated comic book movies ever. And the second coming of Marvel's obnoxious anti-hero is even less enjoyable. Yes, it has its moments, but they are few and not that memorable. Not excited to watch the alternate jokes and shots of the "Super Duper" edition... If the chosen for theater didn't work, I'll guess "take B" we'll be less than awesome...
In the MCU order of things, this is a smaller movie, but It surpassed the original. Super funny, lots of physical (and quantum) humor, great character chemistry, and an almost self-contained plot.
Welcome to the wondrous world of... meh.
Surprisingly entertaining, Tom Hardy has a lot o fun and is a bit more articulated than in his later blockbusters. A very competent blockbuster, with special effects ranging from good to awful, a straightforward plot, and overall quite enjoyable. Hey, it's already better and less goofy than Spider-Man 3, a fresh approach to the Marvel fractured franchise. Not brilliant, but way better than the negative hype might lead to believe.
What a fun ride. Not affraid to be serious and ridiculous on the next scene. Ridiculous, but not stupid. Is visually imaginative, has a great cast. Feel rushed at some points, but thankfully the narratively inevitable climax don't overstay his welcome. This is what a super-hero movie should be.
Never I imagined I could see a Transformers movie this good. And not by Bayformers levels, it's a really good movie. It may not have the bombastic style of Michael Bay, but that worked in favour. Travis Knight work in animation may explain the expressiveness and body language of a big mute CGI robot. With the hardware-porn and crude jokes absent, the movie has time to breathe and develop the characters, as much as a blockbuster allows. It's not original, basically E.T. - if Elliot was a teen angst girl and E.T. a damaged robot. The cast is good - even Mr. Cena - and the principals have so many chemistry. The rythm never lets down, and the plot is simple and straightforward: robot soldier searches shelter after it has been injuried, is helped by a teen that searches for a diferent life. The (...)
Karate Kid+Rocky V+Awful Acting+OK Theme Song=No Retreat, No Surrender. But... I kinda liked it...
