Movie Review: Suicide Squad

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on August 7, 2016

Suicide_Squad_Wallpaper_1680x1050Batman 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.

Movie Review: Batman v Superman

Batman v Superman

This is a really late post as I watched the film last March 26. Reason for the late post is due to a really hectic schedule concerning my work as a freelance writer. I’m sure everyone knows what critics and fans think of the film.

On one side are people who thought the movie was too dark, gritty, serious, lacked storytelling structure, and “not like Marvel.” On the other side are people who are more than pleased with Snyder’s Justice League prequel and are ready to duke it out with naysayers anytime of day.

I’m not a fan of the comic book series, I’m not a fan of the Justice League series. What I am is a fan of Batman and this is what a typical Batman fan has to say about Batman v Superman. (more…)

I just watched this film and I had my hopes way, way up specially since it’s an all-star cast and it’s one of the best film franchises in history. I mean, it’s a superhero movie made by one of the best superhero movie makers. The bar is already set high when you think back to the first Avengers film. I’m going to say it now: This film surpasses the first one in all aspects. You could go there and set your standards high and you wouldn’t think the film would go beyond it.  (more…)

Movie Review: Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Film (2012 and 2014)

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on August 21, 2014

First and foremost, I am truly apologetic that I was unable to write a review on the first film of the Live Action adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin though I was able to watch it on Day 1 as well last 2012.

To give justice to it, I’d like to make a review of it together with the awesome sequel I watched last night which, as hinted earlier, was also its day 1.

Anima9 mourns the death of Paul Walker

Posted in entertainment by Fated Blue on December 1, 2013

I saw this news on Facebook and I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was a hoax, I thought it was just one of those actors we all joke about dying. To my sad surprise, it was true. CNN reports:

Speed was a factor in the crash, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said.

The wreck took place about 3:30 p.m. (6:30 p.m. ET), about 300 yards from the office park where the event was held. The speed limit there is 45 mph.

Up and down the road near the crash site were burned rubber and doughnut marks as though someone smoked their tires in figure 8 patterns.

“I don’t know if the marks in the road are related to the crash,” said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Brian Allen.

Deputies arrived at the scene to find a vehicle on fire, he said

Once fire crews put the flames out, they found two occupants, both of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.

Movie Review: Iron Man 3

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.
