Thor: Ragnarok review

Posted : 1 month, 1 week ago on 6 November 2017 02:11 (A review of Thor: Ragnarok)

Just an absolute blast all the way through. I always felt like the first two had so much wasted potential as these movies have a great mythology and world to explore but it never quite got there. These are what these movies should have been: fun comic book fantasy/sci-fi throwbacks with that never takes itself too seriously. For the first time, Thor and Loki feel like brothers and their dynamic is actually one of the best things about this. Thor himself is actually now at his most fun than ever before. Hemsworth plays him as that cool, sweet, fun jock who you would love to just hang out with. Hemsworth really excels at comedy and these kind of roles so he nails it. Bruce Banner was fun to have on the screen too with Ruffalo and Hemsworth playing it almost like a buddy cop movie. The supporting cast is cool too with Cate Blanchett, Taika Waititi, and Jeff Goldblum all bringing their own quirkiness to this world. But Tessa Thompson was the stand out. A lot have called her the "Han Solo" of the movie and it is easy to see why. She's badass, cool, smooth, funny, and you can't help but wish she was on screen every time. Thompson needs more starring roles and this film shows why.

If I have a complaint about this it's it still has the occasional trappings of the Marvel formula which feels weird against the other newer formula at play here. The villain's motivation is the same as others and it has a lot of the same story beats and pacing the other Marvel movies have. But it is still very much worth your attention. Most of that praise should be given to Waititi who understands what kind of movie this should be. He balances the tone perfectly and makes for one of the most fun Marvel movies to date. More in likely too, this will be the one with the most replay value. Go see this and just have a good time.

P.S. This has a great soundtrack too.

Brawl in Cell Block 99 review

Posted : 1 month, 1 week ago on 5 November 2017 06:27 (A review of Brawl in Cell Block 99)

Whenever I look for books, there is always one that has an odd title and a great cover that catches my eye. Usually these books are pulpy as hell with a grindhouse edge. These books also tend to have some of the most despicable characters you will ever read with even the "heroes" being not very good people. This is like those books and I loved it. It's a brutal movie with the violence being depicted as more bone breaking than over the top gore. Zahler really helps you feel every punch and bone break in this. He does a great job too of helping you feel the isolation of the prison and the loneliness Bradley feels. Even when the setting looks grimy and disgusting, you can't help but feel the atmosphere and be captivated with what is on screen. This too is probably one of the best things Vince Vaughn has done in years. It feels like he is now entering that stage of a comedian's career where they start to do more drama work and character actor work, and so far he is nailing it. The supporting cast is good with Udo Kier and Don Johnson being charismatic performers. If I have one complaint it's that I wish we had gotten a little more with the main antagonist as he just feels like a typical cartel boss. But I highly recommend checking this out as it is one of my favorites this year.

Over the Garden Wall
One of the most beautifully animated stories I have ever seen. It's a great miniseries to view on Halloween filled with odd and creepy characters. Even though a lot of the songs are short, they are very memorable and fun. More importantly though is the relationship between the brothers is what will keep your hooked. This will probably be an annual Halloween viewing for me now. If you have 100 minutes to spare, it is very much worth it.
