Another random question that popped into my mind recently as I watched a film I’ll being reviewing this week. Now I find that if a friend or family member makes me watch something because they believe it to be excellent that I will give it a go eventually, against my natural pessimistic view of genres I normally avoid (If you don’t remember genres I don’t like click here). If I do like it more likely than not it is a film so excellent that it transcends all genres. A rarity but I absolutely love it when I find one. So I ask the question Have You Ever Liked a Film in a Genre You Normally Hate? Mine is after the break.
Well the last question I asked was extremely popular. So like film studios am rolling out the sequel as quick as possible. I’ll probably need to clarify what this question is asking. I want to know if there is something in movies that they used to have or that they have never really tried that you would like to see more of in future films. Think outside the box. I really want some opinions on this one because we all wish that the thing we really like should be made more mainstream or popular. And in films they can make anything so why don’t they. Mine is after the break.
For me I want more space battles and antihero’s. When was the last time you saw a good space battle, most sci fi films set in other places are avoiding space battles or any real space exploration nowadays and I don’t know why. Even Star Trek Into Darkness didn’t have much, the was more in a episode from the original series than that film. I quite liked The one from Revenge of the Sith, you know the one right at the beginning. One a few good things to come from the prequels.
As for the antihero’s, well they are extremely rare. An by antihero I mean a Han Solo, a Hell Boy and to a somewhat more extreme area a Judge Dredd. Hopefully Guardians of the Galaxy and the new Star Wars films will solve both of them but am still waiting. But now I want to know your answers so sign off in the comments.
I don’t normal ask questions but when looking up some new films recently I did something I think most of us do. I skipped some films based purely on the Genres, I know its wrong and that every genre of film has brilliant material to offer but I still avoid some. So I ask the question what genre of film do avoid the most? Not which do you hate but which do see and instinctively say “nah i’ll pass”. Mine is after the break.
This will not be a review this is more of an opinion piece, so no scores or review structure, in fact it’s a Q&A between me myself and I. The post will just be a feature including the highlights (if I can find any) such as moments of hilarity or diamond acting in the turd that is this movie. Look for meme’s and disguised insults, I mean compliments just compliments.
Plenty of my readers know that I love a good box office prediction, and so what’s better than to predict who will win the most tightly contested season the summer, well nothing really. 2014 has a very mixed summer filled with all kinds of films; this will mean very different numbers and makes predicting them quite difficult. Normally it’s easy to see how well a sequel will make but this summer we have 3 franchises alone that have been rebooted and in their own right having sequels. That being said below is my 10 favourites to win the summer box office, not which I think will be good or that I want to win just that they will bring in the green (or whatever colour money is in your respective countries). Think I am wrong or just want to join in? Then post your 10 favourites to win in the comments section below.
This has taken far too long to review but here we are. I really liked this film and when I first heard of it I didn’t care, love a pleasant surprise. Its action packed, funny, got a great voice cast, and the story is quite touching, very much to my surprise. The visuals in this are great, I really thought the mix of Stop-motion and CGI was very impressive; I was often unable to see the difference in the film. The characters are either really funny or are great character parodies. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“I know what you’re thinking, he’s the least qualified person to lead us…and you’re right!”
Yay the actually review is out! Didn’t really anticipate this film all that much, the story didn’t hook me from the trailers or anything but the film actually surprised me. The story is fun and unique at parts especially for a Disney film and the music is brilliant, something I am saying more and more about Disney films of late than Pixar films. Disney have really impressed me with their recent animated features Wreck it Ralph and Tangled where very good films and this is a great continuation of that. It’s enjoyable for kids and adults and if you like musicals I am sure you’ll walk out singing. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“Only one crazy enough to be out in this storm is you dear. You and this fellow.”
This is my list of the most anticipated films released in the year 2014, wow this year, crept up quick. I have a skewed view towards the genres of Sci-fi and Action, so don’t expect indie or drama, I will watch them but at the moment I just don’t care. If you notice any films that you want to see more than anything then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply forgot it was coming out. If so I would love to know if I am missing any. Also there will be a box office prediction for each film; you guys know how much I like predictions. Upcoming reviews are all 2013 film, first Frozen then The Kings of Summer and You’re Next is ironically next.
This is my list of the Top Ten Films released in the year 2013. I have reviewed each one of them or a review is pending and consider them to be all worthy of their position. If you notice any films that you loved and that are not on the list then this could mean one of two things, either I disagree or I simply didn’t see it (there’s a lot of those). I will also be releasing my worst films of the year and what I thought were the best/worst sci-fi films of the year. Lastly I will post my most anticipated films of this current year 2014, ohhh exciting.
