Thor: Ragnarok review

Posted : 1 year, 10 months 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 year, 10 months 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.

All That Jazz (1979)

1 week, 6 days ago
Game of Thrones
Peaked: Season 4 Downhill: Season 5(but really noticeable 7) There's a show that always ends up capturing the world's attention and obsession every few years. Twin Peaks, Lost, The Walking Dead, and then this show. It felt like every Sunday everyone was watching it and then the next day talk about it. These characters became icons and made stars out of these actors. It also showed that tv can look just as amazing or epic as a movie. One of the best things about this show was the political intrigue and scheming between the characters. You never knew what to expect and just as you fall in love with a character, they would be brutally killed. I was always fascinated by characters like Tyrion, Arya, The Hound, Cersei, or Dany. Even when these people did very bad things, you couldn't help but love whenever they were on screen. The best season that was the show at its best was season 4. Almost every week had a moment that everyone talked about or took the show in a direction that indicated shit was about to hit the fan. I particularly loved the fight between Oberyn and The Mountain. It was also one of the strongest seasons for people like Peter Dinklage and Lena Headley. Like a lot of seasons for this show, certain characters met their doom and it felt like the cast was dwindling to make room for the White Walkers. Season 5 came along and if I had to describe it, it would be disappointing. It was the worst thing a show can be: boring. Characters were just sort of limping along and the story felt so aimless. It was cool and everything to see characters meet up and form new alliances but it felt like the show was going through the motions. However, the episode "Hardhome" came and not only was the best episode of the season but one of the best of the series. It showed the destructive force of The White Walkers and introduced us to The Night King. The final episode of the season also ended in a way that would be super interesting to see next season. Season 6 started off a little slow but after about episode 3, it started to become the show I loved again. It was clear there were going to be huge battles coming and Ramsey was finally going to get his comeuppance. Characters like Sansa were showing real growth and it seemed like it was setting up an amazing conclusion to this epic story. In particular, I liked what they were doing with Cersei and Lena Headley continued to show why she was one of the best actors on that show. The biggest problem with season 7 is it feels way too short. A lot of things happen and it feels like it needed more episodes to flesh out actions and motivations. It was still entertaining but characters were making dumb decisions that didn't make sense just so the story can move along. I thought maybe the showrunners did this just so we can get an awesome final season. I was optimistic and the 2 year gap had me hopeful they were taking as much time as needed to make it perfect. Disappointed is probably the word I would use to describe the final season. A lot of people hated it but there was some good things about it. I really liked certain scenes but the season as a whole feels like a power point presentation. You really get the sense that Benioff and Weiss were done with the show and possibly didn't care. Like season 7, there weren't enough episodes to flesh out characters to justify their actions. It could have worked as well if they had set up before in season 7 reasons for why characters in season 8 made the decisions they did. This is evident in the way they butchered people like Tyrion, Dany, or Sansa's storylines. It's a shame cause Emilia Clarke gave the best performance of her entire time on the show. Even as I write this, I have to admit I remember the good aspects of the show more so than the bad. When the show was good, it was really good. It was a big fantasy epic filled with characters I loved. The final 2 seasons might not have been nearly as good as the others but it still had things I liked.
