Deadpool was done right. Like straight from the comics done right, nicely done guys. It’s ridiculously funny throughout with a great cast and characters to compliment the Merc with a mouth. The dialogue was equal parts hilarious, filled with pop culture and filthy, just how I like it. Even the action and visuals were pretty great considering the budget; they really worked within their means and it paid off.

This is a very unique film and reviewing it is going to be quite hard. It’s a South Korean film with a mostly American and British cast, I was expecting there to be more Korean actors but it is limited to two who were in my opinion very strong. The acting is brilliant and especially from Chris Evans, not something I expected from the trailers and the subtle moments of dialogue really stand out in this film. The story and setting of this film is very weird and that’s how I like these films, good Sci-Fi idea with plenty of material such as Segregation and dystopian survival. The battles and action was pretty good and again totally bizarre as it all has to take place in cramped train carts. The visuals where decent, I’d say somewhere between a B movie and Blockbuster film. And the music wasn’t bad either. 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.
“Have you ever been alone on this train? When was the last time you were alone? You can’t remember, can you? So please do. Take your time.” Hard to find a quote that works without seeing the film. But you’ll get it soon.
I heard awful things about this film and so didn’t go to cinema to see it, but after seeing it recently I kind of regret that. The film isn’t great by any stretch of the imagination but it isn’t bad and I had quite a bit of fun watching it. In saying that I would like to point out that I am weird and I imagine the number of people who would also like this film to be quite small, so my readers are warned. The story and general script wasn’t too bad but if I were to give some advice it would be to not use as much of the magical and fantasy elements because it costs far too much and was the worst parts of the film. The battles and action was pretty great and had fun with all the samurai action, less so when they fought magic stuff. The visuals where strong and whilst I think the film could have done without the magic elements they didn’t skimp on the CGI. This cost way too much to make. I’ll go into much more detail below and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Most people who know me and have read my reviews would guess I liked 300 quite a bit and you would be right, so obviously I was going to see Rise of an Empire. Sadly and not unexpectedly this was a weaker contender than its star studded predecessor but it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. The acting was passable if only dragged along by its two leads, seriously cannot remember anyone past Sullivan Stapleton and Eva Green who were both pretty good. The story and general script was pretty bad and somehow seemed smaller in scale than 300, which seems impossible considering how much more happened in this film. The battles and action was pretty great and as where the visuals short of some effects I would not have used in this film. The visuals where strong and the music wasn’t bad either. 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.

The reboot of RoboCop is not bad, it’s actually pretty good. And nobody is more surprised than me. The acting was good, the characters are interesting, the dialogue was for the most part good, and Samuel L. Jackson had me in stitches. The science fiction is interesting, focusing on a very topical plot point of the use of Drones; I thought the idea of the near future predicted here isn’t all too insane. The new and old takes from the first film work, like the Omnicorp having a marketing guy keeping polls on social media, Jay Baruchel was a good choice for that role. 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.
