Review: Elysium

Elysium2

Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.

Elysium1

I honestly didn’t know what to expect in the movie, except that it is a dramatic science fiction movie starring Matt Damon. I liked the trailer so I jumped right in, this is about Earth going to crap and the elite moving to an earth station orbiting around earth in the perfect world. The robots in this movie were cool and realistic, and people were going to extremes to get to Elysium. The surprise for me wasn’t just the story, it was the other star of this movie who played the bad guy perfectly, Sharlto Copley (From District 9). He made the movie insane and thrilling, above and beyond what I was initially expecting and that made it that much better.

Review: Riddick

Riddick1

Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past.

Riddick2

Going back to the original Riddick, this is similar to the first movie Pitch Black. It’s Riddick versus the monsters and only with his skills are they able to survive, and no mercenary group or two can even think to take him on. I enjoyed the way it played out and as usual Vin Diesel is a bad ass in this movie. If you loved Pitch Black you will love this movie.

2013 Summer TV Shows

Graceland

This has been an interesting summer with a lot of different shows as well as the usual shows. Suits is just over the top good, Devious was an interesting introduction and so is Graceland. And I never get tired of Franklin & Bash, I just wish there were more episodes to enjoy.

DeviousMaids

  • Falling Skies – Haven’t finished it, but its getting intense
  • Franklin & Bash – Loving the show as usual, but not more Epic then the last season
  • Suits – This season is Epic, its ridiculous how good its gotten
  • Devious Maids – This turned out to be a surprise of a show, the maids know everything
  • Royal Pains – This show is just as good as usual, I do enjoy Dr Lawson
  • The Newsroom – Haven’t started it yet, but really looking forward to it.
  • Graceland – A pretty interesting Interagency Law Enforcement Team in Malibu, a complex action show
  • Under the Dome – Halfway through it, still confused as to the dome but very interesting to see whats happening with people
  • Rookie Blue – This season isn’t as good as the previous one
  • Ray Donovan – Crazy show, just the first two episodes and its over the top

Anime List 09/13

AttackOnTitan

I have been better about watching Anime and getting back into it, trying at least one episode a day, the thing is that its so addictive, its had just to stay at one episode a day, you want to watch 10. My list has been kept full but I am sure to watch one or two episodes when I can, and some of these shows are really good with Attack on Titan being the best by far, waiting for each episode to come out is killing me. Bleach on the other hand I’m loving, I sort of skim through the filler episodes but watch the storylines religiously when I get into it.

Jojos

What I Am Watching:

  • Attack On Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) – The Best Anime this Season by Far! Love it!
  • Bleach – Catching Up And Loving it, I’m at 314 & only 52 Episodes Left, Loving it!
  • Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet – A Very Cool Mecha Anime
  • Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure – Finishing This Show Up, Reminds of Fist OF The North Star, Love the Action
  • Majestic Prine – Another Cool Mecha Anime, I’m Loving the number of Mecha shows this season
  • Sword Art Online – Finishing Up A Great Story
  • Valvrave the Liberator – Action Packed Mecha – Enjoying the Fight Scenes

Review: R.I.P.D

RIPD1

A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.

RIPD2

I was looking forward to this movie, sort of Ryan Reynold’s Men in Black Movie, with him being Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones is played by Jeff Bridges. I love Science Fiction movies, but this Supernatural movie just didn’t play out the right way, it annoyed me and honestly disappointed me. Here I was thinking this was going to be a hell of a movie but at the end it fell short of my expectations. Even with Kevin Bacon playing the bad guy, it just didn’t add up in the right way, the characters felt fake and the special effects were crap.

Crappy Movies – Admission & Spring Breakers

SpringBreakers

Spring Breakers

Every once in a while I write about movies that were not up to my expectation, and thats rare since I enjoy most movies. Spring Breakers turned out to be one very weird and annoying movie, here I thought it would some crazy girls going on a crime spree during spring break, but I was wrong. James Franco made no sense in this movie either, from Spring Breakrs to Oz the Great & Powerful, I don’t know who is choosing his scripts but they need to fired. Don’t waste your time with this movie, it sucks.

Admission

Admission

Anything that Tina Fey does I usually love, she is the genius behind 30 Rock, I have loved the show for the past 7 years. So I was expecting this to be a pretty good comedy coming from her, and the trailer looked pretty good. But this turned out to be a comedy drama, not as funny as I was expecting. I thought it would be better, and the story revolves around Tina Fey’s character, the trailer looked funnier but it seems there was more drama, not what I was hoping for.

We’re The Millers – Trailer

A veteran pot dealer creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

A Virgin, A Runaway, A Drug Dealer, & A Stripper, they make for the perfect American Family, and this is how this grand idea starts for this movie. I love the actors in this movie and it looks to be a ridiculous comedy. Watch the trailer and you know you will want to watch it.

The Walking Dead – Season 4 Trailer – Insane

Things have really changed from what it was, and season 3 ended on a high note, and this glimpse it season 4 says a lot. You could tell some people died and some people are barely surviving. I love this show and can’t get enough of it, I can’t believe that its only two months away. I hope they have a two hour season premiere, that would be fantastic.
