It is amazing to me how competently made this movie is, considering how absolutely nonsensical the story is. If any of the characters had acted reasonably or the resolution had felt earned at all, I could recommend this, but, as it is, I can only warn you to avoid this mess. I give it a D, just don't bother.
If you insist on watching "A Glitch in the Matrix", make sure to turn it off after the first 30 minutes. That was as long as it managed to have anything of interest to say, and from that point on it was just killing time by letting people with absolutely no expertise in the field prattle on with their meaningless accounts. I give it a D, just don't bother.
"The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story" was incredibly good. I have to admit that I am the perfect demographic for this documentary, having lived through these years as a child, but even if it weren't for that, it is still just an amazingly well put together package that really captures the time. I was absolutely stunned by all of the people they managed to get for interviews. I give it a B, next time you're in the mood for a movie, this one won't disappoint.
I saw this movie a couple of times as a teen, and I was never impressed much by it, but jump forward 25 years and I am ready to pronounce this to be a classic. Maybe it is all of the lazy modern animation I am subjected to nowadays, but "Ninja Scroll" just looks beautiful. The choice of camera angles is inspiring and the animations are genius. I can totally understand if the story isn't for you (beware of the multiple rape scenes), but if gore doesn't bother you, I think the tale is very well put together where every character plays an important role in the outcome. I give it a B, next time you're in the mood for a movie, this one won't disappoint.
Nothing about the plot in "Gemini Man" makes sense, and I'm not talking about the sci-fi elements. Just the simple human relation stuff is nonsense, and the action stuff is no fun either, since it is all just 2 CGI Will Smiths fighting in the shadows, so you can't see the seams. I stuck with it well over an hour, but just couldn't pull myself to sit through the last half hour. I give it a D, just don't bother.
