Batman v Superman started the franchise this year and it got pretty mixed reviews. Critics didn’t like it but fans say critics were too harsh. I reviewed it and personally, I liked it. Now comes Suicide Squad, the franchise’s first villains-turned-hero film ala Deadpool (well, technically Deadpool’s an antihero).
Like a curse, Suicide Squad met its own BvS critics. Fans reacted and even went on as to petition the shutting down of a popular film-review website. Fans like me weren’t deterred so I went ahead and formed my own opinion about the film and here is my review.
I reviewed Batman v Superman last time and I got two scores for the normal fan and the comic book fan.
Anyway, I’m into the whole Avengers bandwagon thing now since I’m one of those normal fans who are looking forward to how it all ends. I already watched the Iron Man movies, the Cap A movies, and of course, the two Avengers films. I also watched Guardians of the Galaxy but I skipped Thor, Ant Man (heard it was cool/a B+ movie), and will be skipping Dr. Strange despite him possibly having another infinity stone.
Again, I’m not a total fan of Marvel or any of its franchise. I’m not even really into DC myself save for Batman. So this review is just what a casual MCU fan thinks of the movie.
I watched the film last night with a couple of friends. I’ll try to keep this short but sweet as to avoid spoilers.
The third and final installment in the Rurouni Kenshin movies picks up where the last film left off. As far as hype and expectations were concerned, the last film received probably triple the amount as compared to its amazing predecessor. The last film was expected to cover the legendary fight scenes of the Juppon Gatana, whom if I may add lacked screen time, and of course the big reveal of Kenshin’s ultimate technique. (more…)
Iron Man 3 is the third and rumored final installment in the famous Iron Man saga. I watched this film out of just wanting to watch something to remove the stress of having a lousy boss at work. I really had my highest expectations about this film and, in a nutshell, it sort of not delivered it the way I preferred but it delivered something nonetheless.
I just finished watching this awesome movie. I was lusting for a good samurai movie and this one just pushed the right buttons for me. I was searching for the top 100 Japanese movies of all time and this was in. I didn’t read any synopses nor did I watch any trailers. I simply had to take my chances with this film and I found it worthy spending two hours of my life.
Let me first start this off by saying I had the highest of highest expectations for this movie since The Dark Knight. I really thought TDK (which what I’ll abbreviate the 2nd film from now on) was the best of the franchise and will be hard to top but this film proved me wrong.
To be honest, I really would’ve preferred the Joker in the last film but alas we can’t have everything we want. Still, TDKR (the 3rd movie from now on) is no push over. In fact, I’ll go as far and say TDKR is on a completely different level than the first two films. It is definitely larger and at the pedestal of legends in movie franchise history.
I won’t really spoil you guys but I’ll be dropping a few bombs along the way so read at your own risk. With that settled, let’s begin my review of The Dark Knight Rises.
