The last movie I watched was Black Panther. With all the hype going around, I couldn't ignore it, even if superhero films tend to bore me. I'm glad to say that this movie was the exception; I had a lot of fun watching it, and that's what really counts.

The main cast were both strappingly handsome and disarmingly beautiful, too!

Deadpool 2. Pretty funny.

    Red Cliff. A trifle overrated. The general cast is fine from Kaneshiro to Leung, but the love interest Lin-Chi Ling was nothing but eye candy. I did not believe her determination for a second.

    The production values are lofty and ambitious with location shots, pyrotechnics, well-constructed sets and costumes, but sometimes the texture was just not there a picture that doesn't look old, or people come straight from the battlefield without any dirt on them. Overtime this can make the movie feel fake.

    While the explosions and chase sequences are all technically sound, its not done in a suspenseful way. I texted through most of the movie without looking up--you know how it is going to turn out, there was not one surprise. Problems are solved way too easily. It was a war where nobody you knew got hurt. Your enemies will fall for anything in this movie.

    This wasn't a bad movie exactly, I just thought it was weak after seeing what I thought was a great film not long before it--The Warlords which also starred Takeshi Kaneshiro. The Warlords had it all, everyone acted great, the battle sequences were much more dynamic and gruelling, the score was intense and there were no cliche characters. The story was dramatic and went to some unexpectedly dark places, I was riveted from start to finish. I especially liked Andy Lau.

    The first film felt like real war to me, the second one felt more like fairytale war. Obviously the second one with the happy ending was the one that made all the money, but the first one was the good movie :P

      It was good though. Especially if you stayed for the credits.

        Yeah I saw it. An entertaining movie. But over-hyped like Infinity War. But that's just something that is inevitably annoying about movies, the hype.

          Thor: Ragnarok

          It was like... my seventh time I've watched it again. It is fun and great at the same time.

          Unlike the previous two Thor films, which are Thor (2011) and Thor: The Dark World (2013), Thor: Ragnarok has a very different (and weird) feel like the movie isn't just a very serious mood but the movie is somewhat entirely comedy and colorful. Although, there are a lot of ends and death words mentioned, but the film doesn't want use to focus on the risk that Asgard cannot be saved.

          Loki has a great character development here since The Avengers (2012)... from a genocide trickster into a guy who loves watching theaters. He have journeyed during his status as a dead or missing character, and from those invasions and tricks he have caused, he seemed learned the value of leadership (of at least worse to better). In the end, he decided to help evacuate Asgard citizens away from Hela and become a good person for Thor.

          The film really ended in a honorable happy-ending way... but everything screwed up in Infinity War.

              Just re-watched Spider-Man 2. It still is one of the best superhero films of all time. Certainly holds up even now and is better than a lot of other overrated superhero movies like Nolan's Batman films. Has a lot of heart and isn't a gritty, bleak superhero movie nor a comedic, flashy CGI infested superhero blockbuster. It's a movie that stands out a lot with its fantastic cast, narrative and action sequences that also hold up very well.

                I watched Before I Fall a week ago. I've watched it so many times now, it's such a wonderful movie. An even better book.

                It's the type of movie I could watch 100 times over. I highly recommend it.

                Me and my friends went to see Winchester the other day and we had the entire cinema to ourselves. Despite the poor reviews, it was actually a decent movie with a few jumpscares.

                  Onibaba. This is the craziest movie, and I mean that in a good way. Its a creepy film, a drama/thriller about a desperate family living through war who rob and kill strangers who cross their paths for literally the clothes and goods on their backa. This movie probably couldn't have even been made in the west at that time, there's sex, murder, cannibalism. Its such a surreal and nightmarish situation that soon the line between stark reality and horror get blurred, and there may be a real demon among them...its spooky. You should see it. Its worth 5 stars.

                    I just watched [I]Deadpool 2[./I] I liked it a lot. Very self-aware and just casually broke the 4th wall. I was hoping to see more of Shatterstar though. (I have the biggest crush on Lewis Tan like *screams*).

                      Last movie I saw from yesterday was The Burning. A 1981 slasher film, it's pretty good considering I'm not a fan of slashers. The characters were likable and it was nice to see kids in the 80s before social media and ego inflation

                      Last movie I watched was Solo: A Star Wars story, considering I'm not really into the whole Star Wars franchise I really enjoyed it! Plus it had Emilia Clarke so instantly scores 10/10 haha

                        10/10 cause of a certain actress? That's quite some celebrity worship you got there.

                          Rashomon. Wow! I have seen it before but seeing it again it was even better. Its just amazing in every way, everybody's acting and the way each tale was directed. Its such a cool film. See it if you can because I bet you've never seen anything quite like it. If you have, then odds are the storytellers were inspired by this. Its called the Rashomon effect. A crime is committed but everyone swears a whole different version of what happened. Who do you think is telling the truth?




                          It was especially awesome seeing Takashi Shimura again, the woodcutter in the still above. This so happened is the third movie in a row I watched him. After talking to a friend recently I decided to sit back and watch Seven Samurai again. I also popped in Kwaidan, and forgot that he was in that movie too as the priest.

                            Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, but ended up bored and turned it off.

                            Maybe because I'm supposed to watch these movies in the order they released

                            No, the sequels are terrible in any order.

                              I haven't seen the first one yet, since I wasn't able to find it on any of the streaming services we own. It felt like I was missing continuation, and that the characters were supposed to be known from the first movie. I'll still give it a chance, after I eventually watch the original.

It felt like I was missing continuation, and that the characters were supposed to be known from the first movie. I'll still give it a chance, after I eventually watch the original.
                              The first film is a solid standalone film, the sequels are just pandering fanservice, overbloated and poorly written cheap cash grabs.

                              Honestly... you might find the second movie even MORE boring after the first one. If you like it at all, that is.
