Movie Review: 13 Assassins

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on October 27, 2012

 

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.

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

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.

MOVIE REVIEW: Robin Hood 2010 – The beginning we all should’ve known

First things first: I watched this film right after I completed ALL the pre-employment requirements requested by my employer. I figured I deserve to watch a film to reward myself for all the efforts I exerted within the past 7 days.

I chose this film simply because it was a Russell Crowe movie. Not to mention him teaming up with Ridley Scott. If you don’t know how good their combination is, just look up the epic film “Gladiator” and you should be enlightened as to why I had a damn need to watch this.

The movie was about the story we all should’ve known: How Robinhood became the man he was before becoming the legend.

Summary: The movie’s story telling was great but needed more action. It can bore those who really looked forward to archers doing their archery and swordsmen doing their swordsmanship in battle based on the trailers shown. I actually was very satisfied with the film but I felt that had there been an extra 10-20 minutes more of action or at least 15 minutes less of story telling, this film would’ve been very big. Still, I was very happy to have watched such a strong film among others known for only their popularity.

MOVIE REVIEW: Iron Man 2

Having aced my job interview earlier today (with only less than 2 hours of sleep by the way), I got myself wanting to watch the latest installment in the Iron Man movie series which is aptly called “Iron Man 2”.

The first movie was just great and fans expected a sequel even before it was announced. Did this film did it’s predecessor justice?

As usual, the film gives the audience what it promised in the trailers: Action, explosions, action, guns, action, lasers, and did I mention action?

The movie is worth the price you’ll pay to watch it. It did have some bad sides/moments but it could be the producers’ or the director’s way of making fans watch part 3.
