Last week I had gotten the honor to check out a film titled "Road to the Well (2016)" written and directed by Jon Cvack. Of course, after the Holidays I was quite swamped but I was excited to see what it was so instead of waiting, I sat my work aside and started viewing the screening.
Now, I've seen many indies in my time but this one stood out amongst a large portion of them. To start with the cast was simply superb for their roles, you could tell right off the bat that everyone within the film took their part seriously and gave they're all. The story I thoroughly enjoyed, it wasn't your normal cookie cut scenario, this film has some drive to it. You can surely tell a true amount of hard work and effort went into this film. If I had to break it down to one thing that I enjoyed the most about Road to the Well (2016), it would certainly be how they presented the personas of actions within the film versus throwing some flashing lights and colors around. A superb film for the suspense film fans, check out Road to the Well (2016) when you have the time; it's a diamond in the rough.
Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4.5 stars
Zootopia (2016) is a very entertaining family friendly film packed with a great group of talent which brought all of the characters to life. I'm not a big fan of Disney films but they do occasionally put out some well done films even if they are one sided and/or copies of other stories with new faces, but I did like Zootopia (2016) very much.
Zootopia (2016) sort of landed in a perfect time for me as I had just got relocated back to the west coast from the East coast, while watching the film in the Sloth scene I couldn't help myself thinking of the East coast at that time versus the west. Once I arrived back on the west coast I stopped at a gas station which was filled with people while I watched one cashier manage to cashout 3 groups of customers at a time and it was so quick the average person was in line for under 3 minutes (we timed it); now to my point. On the east coast at any gas station, every customer check out takes at least 10 minutes (one customer at a time) and that's in high gear; so yes the sloth scenes were a breath of fresh air as well as a lot of laughs.
I love the story line within Zootopia, it put some great lessons out in the open while keeping things upbeat; great stuff. I highly recommend anyone to check out Zootopia (2016), even add it to your film collection as it is one that you'll want to watch many times over.
When the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) started popping up in the media we were quite excited. The buzz kept going on with the whole Batman vs Superman that it held our attention, until we saw the cast....
We weren't too thrilled that Ben Affleck was playing the role of Batman, it is very hard to think of his acting style being even remotely a possibility for such a character to perform as. Honestly once we heard the news of the cast, all interest in this film went out the window. We were finally beyond bored and looking for a movie to see that wasn't just a complete waste given the choices that we had, so we watched Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
Looking at Batman vs Superman as a film, the film was quite good. Of course there was a ton of CGI, huge spots in the film with a lot going on though hardly anyone in the background. The film had a lot of hit and misses, though as a comic based film I believe they did a great job especially with the cgi work. As for Ben Affleck being Batman I must say he done very well, a lot better than Im sure most would've expected. I enjoyed the film for what it was and think if we all look past the "who is playing Batman", and of course look past "does it follow the comics" and just take into the fact it's an entertaining flick. woodbangers.com
So many Marvel and DC Comic based films popping out like wild fire, though the only question becomes "does the story follow the comic?". Well that shouldn't be the question, the question should be "is it entertaining"? If we were to evaluate each film that is based on a comic, a book, or a true story; then we'd see that none of the stories match up. Yes Captain America: Civil War (2016) stepped outside the bounds a bit from the comic stories, and who really cares. It does say the movie is based on Characters in a comic, it doesn't say this movie is based on book 14 etc.
Captain America: Civil War (2016) is a fairly done film with a ton of hiccups within the green screens, graphics, story, and a whole lot more but....., was it entertaining? Yes the movie was entertaining!!!, and no it didn't follow lick for lick with the comics but it was a fun flick. I love the cast that they have been using, I really enjoyed that they brought in Antman and Spiderman. Is this a blockbuster hit? No and I havent saw a blockbuster hit in years, so if you like comic related action films then check Captain America: Civil War (2016) out; it's worth a viewing.
First off, I like these stories though I don't think a few of the cast ever truly fill the shoes of their character; but it is just another film. The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) is a fairly good film and it follows the Snow White and The Huntsman story very well. My personal opinion about the film is the love story spots, did they really need so many and of course how on Earth during such events in all films do they tend to have the time to stop for such a moment.
The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) turned out to be pretty good, I did like it; though I liked Snow White and The Huntsman better. Maybe it was the story line or the acting made it a bit more stronger. The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) had it's moments, the story was fair and the cast was pretty much the same; I guess this one just didn't quite live up to expectations for such a story based on the marketing. woodbangers.com
