Prometheus Movie Review

Directed by Ridley Scott

Written by: Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof

Cast

A team of scientists journey through the universe on the spaceship “Prometheus”, on a voyage to investigate Alien life forms. The team becomes stranded on an Alien world, and as they struggle to survive, it becomes clear that the horrors they experience are not just a threat to themselves, but to all of mankind.

[*SPOILERS START HERE*]

There’s Sci-Fi (science fiction) and then there’s horror movies, and then there is that oddity that meshes the two together in this beautiful way, in what you could call perfect harmony–which is what “Promtheus” does. As a prequel to the now infamous “Alien” movie series, which Later spawned two Alien vs Predator movies, that were poorly received. Ye.. DON’T ASK. This Installment was highly entertaining and worth while for fans of movies, or even just fans of the series. It has those “left to the viewer to figure out” moments, and pretty crafty all the same.

The opening of the movie starts out beautifully. It shows us these landscapes of the world that in the movie, claim to  be in Ireland, or at least part of it. (but I’m sure they filmed that in Iceland… either way, Its just beautiful) *NOTE* THIS MOVIE IS MADE TO BE SEEN IN IMAX AND OR 3-D. In order to really appreciate the scope of what you’re seeing, it just would look so much better. I got a free ticket so I won’t complain. The cinematography was outstanding as were the V/FX(Visual effects).

The choice of shots were amazing at the start, and for the most part throughout. The start really has a bang feeling to it, with how it’s shot (I really could talk about the start of this movie forever but its a two hour long movie so I’ll move along). Throughout the film we are taken to many different places and shown many different things, the way it’s introduced in this film seemed very natural, and when you think of where we are with technology, it seems very practical that you could believe some of these things would exist (the technology anyway) . This was probably the best horror movie we will get this year. It’s not overly gory, but just terrifying in the sense that it has crazy looking aliens that do some crazy stuff.

Acting was spotty I won’t lie. Charlize Theron was good, but some of her lines weren’t delivered to the best of her ability (watch monster and you may understand). Idris Elba had some, if not all the best lines in the film (he really is a suburb actor). It may be just me, but I detected light banter between the crew of space men which reminded me of Joss Whedon‘s work, it was good to make the movie a bit light. Guy Pearce was almost unrecognizable. Michael Fassbender plays such great villains in movies man, he was sort of the saving grace in Jonah Hex (but not enough to save that film). He has a way of being obviously evil, but yet deceiving enough to have you think he wouldn’t hurt a fly. It honestly is a joy to watch it all unfold.

Editing wise, it was put together very well. It switches from steady cam, to shaky cam, but WITHIN REASON. It isn’t over done and as I just said….it makes sense. I will give any movie with shaky cam a good rating, if the shaky has merit.

The Plot itself is good at best. I don’t know how much it connects to the other Alien movies, but I’m definitely gonna see the others now that I have this “back story”. If there was a moral of the story, it’s that we as humans should be mindful of what we want to discover. Sometimes our curiosity does get the better of us and we find out something we were WAY better off not knowing.

 

  • Overall rating of the movie: 4.6 out of 5,
  • Cinematography: 5 out of 5,
  • Editing: 4.5 out of 5,
  • Audio: 4 out of 5,
  • Acting: 4 out of 5,
  • Theatres or wait for the blu-ray? Theatre in the best way you can (like Imax or something). Then blu ray if you have the other Alien movies.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

A second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit, Luke Wright, lives a numbing life of routine beatings and chump change, until the day he blows a rigged fight. Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever. But when he witnesses a frightened twelve-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action…and straight into the heart of a deadly high-stakes war. Realizing he’s the only person Mei can trust, Luke tears a swath through the city’s brutal underworld to save an innocent girls life, and perhaps even redeem his own.

I think it’s safe to say (see what I did there?) That this movie, though it looked like crap, satisfied on many levels. The movie can be seen as a lot of things, but to be frank, it is simply an action movie like any other. This one just has Jason Statham, and a moral that is kind of relevant today. I had posted a trailer for it not too long ago on here, and I’ll be honest, besides Statham, there wasn’t ANYTHING having me wanting to watch this movie.

*[SPOILER ALERT]*

The story (editing aside) was, for the most part well executed. At times I felt bombarded by information, but at the same time it added to the depth and added a “thriller” side of the story. I didn’t expect it to be like that, I thought it was gonna be very simple in terms of the goal, and just full of action. The beginning felt rushed, but in the overall scope of things, when the movie is over it makes sense why it was rushed, for they had quite a bit to explain. Gets the benign stuff out the way cause really they could have explained that at any time in the movie. I was at a drive in so I missed a few things thanks, in part, to the quick cross-cutting editing and the switching between english and subtitles. That got a tad bit annoying but meh, it wasn’t longer than 30 mins into the movie. The only flaw I had with the movie was at the end. (like I was actually MAD lol) All I’ll say is *[SPOILER]* the girl saves Luke from what would have been a wicked fight (I was hoping Luke was gonna fight this dude). He seemed like he would have gave him a run for his money.

The acting from Statham is probably his best performance to date. He just had this real emotion, especially when his character arrives home to some really bad news, he still acts like a bad ass. He just had a better connection to this role, as opposed to him only playing a bad ass. I don’t know if that is because of something, or just method acting, but either way it worked (hell, it could have been just good direction). He even has some wicked lines, and his delivery alone easily makes him the best actor in the film. The other actors didn’t really sell some of their lines as compared to the stunts they had to do. They weren’t unbearable or anything, just didn’t have the same kind of skill, though that may have been intentional.

One of his memorable bad ass moments occurred in this scene

The cinematography was done so well in terms of the selection of angles. The director of photography was so on point here–The angles and the use of mirrors was really refreshing. There wasn’t much that I noticed for meaningful shots, though that may have been in part to eating while watching the movie. Yes, there was shaky cam, but itt wasn’t as bad as others have been, just some of the fight scenes suffer because of the style. *sigh…* I wish this trend would stop.

The editing was ok, there wasn’t much to complain with there, it was just ok.

Now, I’m not trying to get all into this topic here, but for any one following the Trayvon Martin case, I thought this movie was a nice “flipped” scenario in a way. Instead of following and harming the child, a hero came from the brink of committing suicide to help protect this child. Though fictional and most likely not intentional, it did have that connection, and if not then I made it for you. this movies moral is quite simply, when you’re in the need of a new beginning, simply look out and open your eyes, ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN!

  • Overall rating of the movie: 3.8 out of 5,
  • Cinematography: 3 out of 5,
  • Editing: 3 out of 5,
  • Audio: 3 out of 5,
  • Acting: 3.2 out of 5,

2010 Clash Of the Titans Throwback Movie review

As I said this was going to happen. First I’d like to say this: If you are a religious wo/man and have ever faced a time where your faith was really being tested to the point of giving up whatever  faith, in whatever God you believe in seemed like a great idea, you may have a stronger connection to this movie. As a friend of mine said, “Its hard to believe in God, when he takes away everything you found him in”

Now that statement is basically the driving force to this movie in comparison to the 1981 version where it was basically a game between gods and Perseus’ love for Andromeda (that, now that I think about it, was random as ever.)

Princess Andromeda is the daughter of King Cepheus, who has gained a victory against the gods. The vengeful god of the underworld, Hades, demands that Andromeda is offered as a sacrifice or he will unleash the Kraken against Argos. A desperate King Cepheus asks demi-god Perseus to find a way to defeat the Kraken. Perseus accepts the challenge because Hades was responsible for his family’s death. He discovers that the way to kill the Kraken lies with getting the head of the gorgon Medusa.

Forever alone since 1981

The plot is basically the same as the 1981 version with a few changes here and there. No bubo this time. In my personal opinion I like most of the updates to this version. The plot is simple, though, its also a flaw when you watch it in comparison, all I kept asking was why is Poseidon just chilling as his brothers are join at each other. plus why aren’t any of the other gods saying anything but just standing there looking pretty? I’m glad they got rid of the “laid out gifts” for Perseus and had him wanting to get revenge for his fallen family and so doing it as a man. The two worst changes may be the introduction of “Io”, SHE DID NOTHING FOR THE MOVIE BUT DIE AND COME BACK BY THE GRACE OF ZEUS?! The other is the use of Calibos. They changed who he was from the original and he just became a none factor really.

Calibos - 1981 (left)
Calibos - 2010(right)

As I said, this movie is more a man who has prayed, lived a decent life, and showed the gods great devotion, only to have the only family he has ever known, killed for sport. That alone is reason to argue this movie is better from the original. Plus I would argue that this movie, even though set in ancient Greek times, is reflective of the times we live in today. Because of the slimmed plot/script/screenplay the adventure to a mystical time is lost. the 80’s were a greatly DIFFERENT time from what we have now.

I really enjoyed the action sequences and the use of CGI. The Kraken is much more intimidating than the miniature one for the 81.

The acting for the most part is okay at best. Felt Hades (Fiennes) seemed too much like Voldemort In my opinion.
The two-disc DVD/Blu-ray combo pack features a digital copy (located on the DVD).

The special features available on the Blu-ray include:

  • Maximum Movie Mode (length of the movie, plays in a “picture in picture”)
  • Focus Points 35:02

Clash Of The Titans Throwback Review

Well all the movie hype this weekend is all going to be about Wrath of the Titans. But first, you let’s not get ahead of ourselves and start with the original Clash of the Titans. (On Dvd)

The original plot summary from 1981: “Perseus is the favored son of the god Zeus, but he has unwittingly ticked off the sea goddess Thetis. Just to make things worse, Perseus falls in love with the lovely Princess Andromeda, who used to be engaged to Thetis’s son. Soon Perseus is off on one quest after another, with Zeus helping, Thetis hindering, and lots of innocent bystanders getting stabbed, drowned, and squished.” 

The plot in my opinion had given the viewers a chance to actually care for the characters on screen. Its a more expansive and explained more thoroughly. Yes, it does cause it to drag on in some parts, but it just makes for a more understood story. The acting is Horrid, in terms of expression. The director is to blame for this, he didn’t convey his imagination. If he did, then well, I stand corrected and the actors were to blame. The only Note worthy actor was Maggie Smith, which my none muggle readers will know her as Professor Minerva McGonagall. She didn’t have many scenes, but when she was, she had the best expressions. It could be argued that cause she is a house hold name, it could be a bias to say that.

The cinematography was really well done in the start of the film. Then it just disappeared in quality like a Toronto Raptors Defence. The best editing is the intro credits to the movie. We follow a seagull making its way back to mount Olympus and as it flies it covers different terrain which ultimately brings you to normal mountains, then snow top mountains, then finally Mount Olympus. It has this feeling of leaving our boring lives and getting set up for a epic adventure filled of Greek gods.

The cool thing bout this 118 minute Fantasy, has to be the “Stop Motion“. The technique is still used today most commonly in “Robot Chicken”. It gives the film this classic, epic, and mystical feeling. At times it works, and many others it doesn’t. The audio wasn’t anything to rave about. Audio meaning music and sound effects. The composing was weak, and so was some of the choices for the sound effects. When the “Medusa” shows her rattle snake tail, I thought she was going to become a transformer. The Make up did an amazing job as well.

I don’t see many people owning this movie, Unless its your childhood movie or you’re a movie buff, student, etc. Its a rental at best. The behind the scene extra’s are a worth a quick look if you ever rented it.

Overall rating of the movie: 3 out of 5, cinematography: 2.5 out of 5, editing: 3.3 out of 5, Audio: 3 out of 5,: Acting 2 out of 5 Rent-Own? RENT

Look out for the remake review COMING SOON.

Captain America May Get New Director For The Sequel

While Captain America: The First Avenger was directed by Joe Johnston and received positive reviews, Vulture is reporting that Marvel Studios is going with a new director(s) for the sequel:

They say: “Vulture hears that the search is narrowing for someone to helm the patriotic hero’s own personal sequel. Insiders tell us that a field of ten directors has been whittled to just three for the follow-up to last summer’s hit: George Nolfi, the writer-director of The Adjustment Bureau; F. Gary Gray, best known for directing The Italian Job; and, naturally … Community’s Anthony and Joseph Russo?”

Vulture adds that Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige hit it off with the Russos, who have also directed You, Me and Dupree and Welcome to Collinwood.

A decision on the director(s) should be made by mid-April

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

The Anchorman is back… In a sequel that is

Paramount Pictures has finally given the green light to a sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Will Ferrell, who made the announcement himself in-character on “Conan”, will return to the title role with supporting cast members Steve Carell and Paul Rudd said to be involved as well.

Ferrell, whose latest, Casa de mi Padre is in theaters now, will again script alongside Adam McKay, who will be back in the director’s chair.

The original film also starred Christina Applegate, David Koechner, Fred Willard, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell and many more. Though none of those members of the supporting cast have yet been confirmed. I’m sure before the spring season is done, more cast members will be confirmed from the original Anchorman movie.

TMNT Or Just Ninja Turtles?

Platinum Dunes’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to feature a very non-traditional origin for its reptilian heroes. In fact, producer Michael Bay hints that the turtles may not be mutants at all, which has sparked much “fan hate”. 

Word arrives via Stuff We Like and a video of Bay speaking at last week’s Nickelodeon Upfront in New York where he states:

Could this be the "Alien" versions? (NOT OFFICIAL artwork of the pending movie)

since this statement was made (and probably taken out of context in my opinion), Bay has realized to counter statements to respond to the fans who have become upset at Bay for “ruining their childhood”

Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.”

and his 2nd statement which is most recent.

“Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE’S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN.

MICHAEL”

To be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature a script from Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and John Fusco.

The franchise, which began as a black and white comic book series in 1984, rose to tremendous popularity when it became an animated series in 1987. Following the first live-action film in 1990, the series spawned two live-action sequels, a live-action television series, a second animated series and a CGI feature film.

Just announced for a Christmas Day, 2013 release.

Do I feel like its needed to be called TMNT? (Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles for you muggles) No. To be honest I’d rather them make a movie thats good and has the same elements that made many fall in love with mutated, teenaged turtles in the first place.

As long as they aren’t anti hero then I’m ok with it. many bash Bay for the Transformers run he has, I don’t think any of them are right to do so. All three, in my opinion, were great movies and I can’t wait for the forth one. Hopefully the director does take into account what the fans are asking for when it comes to TMNT and gives them something to be like “OMG THAT WAS INCREDIBLE!” Cause in all honesty, 1987 was 25 years ago, so really its time to pass the torch to the new kids coming up.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

The Woman In Black Movie Review

Hello all.

Today’s movie review is as the title says, “THE WOMAN IN BLACK” starring Harry Potter… Whoops I mean Daniel Radcliff. His first movie, since ending the eight movie franchise “Harry Potter”.The story for this remake is: Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) is a young lawyer who is depressed by the loss of his beautiful wife after giving birth to a son. His son, now grown to a toddler, draws pictures of him with a sad face. He is assigned to prepare a large house for sale on a marsh and travels to an obscure village where he is shunned by most of the townspeople. He visits the Eel Marsh House, the estate of the late Alice Drabow, to look it over, but finds his job has grown more perilous as it is haunted by the ghost of a woman scorned. He learns from the villagers that the ghost of the woman in black seeks revenge against their children because her child was taken away from her. Kipps is befriended by Sam (Ciaran Hinds) and his wife Elizabeth (Janet McTeer). They, too, have lost a son, and they help the lawyer to investigate the background of the estate and what happened.

starring along side Radcliff is:

  • Ciarán Hinds as Sam Daily, a local landowner
  • Janet McTeer as Elizabeth Daily, Daily’s wife
  • Sophie Stuckey as Stella Kipps, Arthur’s wife
  • Misha Handley as Joseph Kipps, Arthur’s son
  • Liz White as Jennet Humfrye, The Woman in Black
  • Daniel Cerqueira as Keckwick, the carriage driver
  • Tim McMullan as Jerome, the local solicitor
  • Aoife Doherty as Lucy Jerome, Jerome’s daughter
  • Roger Allam as Mr Bentley, senior partner of Kipps’ firm
  • Victor McGuire as Gerald Hardy, a villager
  • Alexia Osborne as Victoria Hardy, Hardy’s daughter
  • David Burke as PC Collins, village constable
  • Ashley Foster as Nathaniel Drablow, The Woman in Black’s son
  • Jessica Raine as Joseph’s Nanny
  • Shaun Dooley as Fisher, village innkeeper
  • Mary Stockley as Mrs Fisher
  • Sidney Johnston as Nicholas Daily, Daily’s son

This remake from the 1989 T.V. movie seems to sway away from the old one slightly with characters and plot. (Fyi, if you ever seen the Potter movies, the man who plays “James Potter” plays “Arthur Kipps” in the original the “son really becomes the father” lol.)

*SPOILER ALERT*

Now even though I’m not a big fan of horror cause for years now, most have been VERY shitty, I gave this movie a chance cause I was hearing good things and I was curious as to how well Radcliff would do post the Potter series. He didn’t really impress. Now I never thought he was a superb actor, but he seemed to be decent. Mind you, we all basically seen him in one role, unless you noticed him as “Edmund” in “The Simpson’s”. But I digress, I got scared maybe a total of three times. That’s no record or anything. But in my defence, I REALLY DIDN’T SEE IT COMING when I did get scared. The first one was roughly around 20 or so minutes in. Then again two more time around the 50 minute mark.

Acting wise, Radcliff and crew, as I said, were ok at best. Nothing to brag home about.

Cinematography and effects were decent as well. It felt like the camera was always moving and for some reason I really enjoyed that. It wasn’t shaky cam so it wasn’t annoying like other movies. But other than that, the only shots that stood out were something like this. Think of a cartoon where you see someone dreaming and theres that dream bubble just over their head. This picture is just the same thing almost.

The only issue I had with this movie was how Arthur Kipps character story arc is wrapped up. I won’t ruin it but, heres a hint…. “Drag Me To Hell”.

 

Overall rating of the movie: 3 out of 5, Cinematography: 3.6 outta 5, Editing: 4.8 out of 5, Audio: 4 out of 5, Acting: 3 out of 5

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

STAR WARS EPISODE 1: The Phantom menace: 3D Movie Review

At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi

At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi

Well folks if you didn’t book the little easter egg to this here film review in the first review (seen here: http://bit.ly/xnngeZ), then.. Well you missed it!

The time was 1977 males, nerds, geeks, & the women who love them, around the world were all talking about “Star Wars”. It was a surprise hit that no one could have expected. Fox didn’t even have any faith in it, they basically let director, George Lucas keep all the various rights to Star Wars. Fast forward to 1999 and you have a new generation about to travel to a time long ago. To a galaxy far, far away.

This is the prequel to the original Star Wars saga that started with the story of Luke Skywalker, his sister Leia, and her soon to be husband, the cool as ever Han Solo. This saga is about Lukes Father, Anakin Skywalker, fated to be the greatest fictional Villain of all time, & pop culture, DARTH VADER!

This review is going to be more about technical quality since the movie has been out for years, and re done to fix minor bugs, minus the least favourite character, Jar Jar binks. Yes, he is in 3D too. So with this re-release, we’re treated to the best kind of 3D. Many never seem to know the difference. There are two kinds of 3D, “depth”, and “off the screen” 3D. For “Depth” 3D, think of the new TTC trains for you Toronto readers, or a hall way, or even a pop up book. The book is on your lap, but the “pop up” portion is coming at you, while the book is still where it has always been. The off the screen stuff.. Think of the 3D rides you’ve ever been on or what you think is to happen.. Got it? Good.

So with this movie as I was saying earlier is the best kind of 3D, depth. It by default makes the motion picture a better experience. (In case you were wondering which “release” this film was its the blu-ray version, as will be the other 5 movies.) Now 80 % of this movie works well with depth 3D being that its set in a fictional world. And mostly everything you see is CGI’d (Computer Generated Imagery) into the movie.

Some scenes to note that were best in 3D: the pod Race PoV (Point of View, think first person shooter games) shots, the intro, the senate scene, any PoV shot really, Anakin in space, and the Darth maul fight in its entirety.

Ps. Anyone who hates jar jar binks doesn’t understand that the purpose for him was to get children into it. Even the choice to start Anakin as a child. Though, I don’t know why you’d start him anywhere but at the earliest point possible.

My only two dislikes is the editing with the Darth Maul fight, I had always wished there was more of the fight, or less cuts to the other stories being told simultaneously. The other, being that with 3D tech, you have a chance to really do something special, that Pod race scene, even some of the space battles could have been redone with some extra PoV shots.

Overall rating of the movie: 3.5 out of 5, Cinematography: 3 outta 5, Editing: 4 out of 5, Audio: 5 out of 5, 3D: 3.5 out of 5

THAT IT! Cheers “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!
