Batman – Assault On Arkham

The film is set in the universe of the Batman: Arkham video game franchise, and occurs after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins. The story focuses primarily on theSuicide Squad, particularly Batman villains Deadshot and Harley Quinn, with Batman in a supporting role. In the film, a Suicide Squad of six criminals is dispatched byAmanda Waller to break into Arkham Asylum, where they must contend with the asylum’s inmates and Batman as they attempt to complete their mission.

This is by THE best direct to video made by DC Comics, or any other company for that matter. There are a lot of DTVs made and the creators get to have a good amount of experimentation in style and the quality of the animation itself varies drastically, but DC Comics is usually on top of their game with their Direct to Video Movies. For once they didn’t stick to your typical storyline, and the bad guys played a much deeper role then just Batman himself, the Suicide Squad had a colorful array of characters who carried the movie in a more comic book style then seen before, and that made it that much better. The combination of action, artstyle, humor, wit, voices, and characters took this movie to another level, now DC has set the bar so high it’s going to be hard to beat this movie. One thing to keep in mind this movie is not for kids, and I will leave it at that.

 

 

Chef – A Movie That Makes You Hungry

A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

One Hell Of A Cast:

  • Jon Favreau
  • Sofia Vergara
  • John Leguizamo
  • Scarlett Johansson
  • Robert Downey Jr.
  • Dustin Hoffman

You would really have to do pretty badly to screw up a movie with this cast line up, half of them from the Marvel Universe and the other half are great actors. I love any movie with Jon Favreau, one reason is because he is Iron Man’s Body Guard / Driver, and the other reason is he brought Iron Man to life and with that came all the Marvel Movies behind his success. This movie is a different kind of movie for from Jon Favreau and if you want to watch a fun movie with great characters and really good looking food then this is it, I honestly can’t recommend it enough. Its got all the pieces of a great movie with a deep and fun story, and Jon Favreau makes you want to go into the kitchen and do something crazy with the food. And don’t watch the movie hungry, you will end craving everything you see on screen.

Justice League: War

The world’s finest heroes found the Justice League in order to stop an alien invasion of Earth.

The one thing I love about the DC Universe is that they are always coming out with these animated movies and at very high pace. These aren’t theatrical releases but each o

What I Liked 

The animation style was very clean and with the right combination of animation and CG. The story was high octave and very well put together for a short movie. We got see the characters at different stages, so you could meet them individually first except for maybe Superman. Then there was the bromance between Green Lantern & The Flash it was great and hilarious, hopefully this is eventually translated in to a live action film. Batman was great in the movie and as dark as usual, the one who puts the plans together. Cyborg & Captain Marvel had a great rythem going together, and I just wanted a bit more from Captain Marvel, he is always underplayed in these movies, Wonder Woman was of course the badass. The humor in the movie played out perfectly.

What I Disliked

It was a short movie so there were a few parts of the stories that were forced together. Darkseid’s introduction didn’t play out smoothly and he felt more like a video game villain that you reach at the end of the game.

Overall it is a good addition to DC animated library and if you do like comic movies then this is one to enjoy.

Brick Mansions – Parkor Movie?

I love parkor and I enjoyed any movie Paul Walker was in, so I was really looking forward to this movie. Especially after passing away I wanted to watch every Paul Walker movie, and I need to watch Hours and I am looking forward to the next Fast & Furious movie, but this one was a disaster. Seriously who ever was writing the story was high as a kite, there was rarely a time that I wanted to walk out of a movie but this was one of them and most of Nicholas Cage’s movies. The story was stale and as the movie progressed it went from bad to worse, time I can not get back.

 

TMNT – 2014 – Trailer

Another TMNT Movie! I’m honestly happy that they keep bringing back the best of the 80s & 90s to the theater, and this TMNT looks o be bad ass. The best part of the movie is that it’s rebooted by Michael Bay so you know its going to be an action packed movie, but to my surprise Megan Fox is playing April O’Neil even though she had a fall out with Michael Bay from Transformers. But it looks really cool and TMNT guys look amazing, more bad ass then ever before. The movie will debut on August 2014 and I will be watching it.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

With the 70s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, returns to take New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.

If you even like Will Ferrel you will love this movie, from beginning to end I couldn’t stop laughing, I can never get enough of Will Ferrel movies but this one had the perfect cast to support him and make this one hell of a movie. Ron Burgendy shined in Anchorman 2, I thought Anchorman was hilarious that it couldn’t be funnier, but they topped it off with this one. I loved the character played by Steve Carrel, he perfected it, I could feel a bit of Michael Scott from the Office coming through with him in that suit. The best part is the insanely ridiculous battle scene at the end, just the amount of famous people who were in it was enough, you could tell that people joined in because they were enjoying themselves making this movie, if you haven’t seen it then watch it.

Popcorn Time – Basically Netflix For Free

Popcorn time has the same feel to it as Netflix and works relatively smoothly, streaming most of the movies you would like to see. But unlike Netflix it runs on the BitTorrent network so its pulling movies from unknown sources with no traceback to you. Popcorn Time has beta builds which run on Windows, Mac, & Linux, and the best part is that it very user friendly & has an intuitive user interface.

The service was killed off a little while back even though technically they didn’t store any movies, but as it was an open source program someone else picked up the mantle and brought Popcorn Time back to life.

“The YTS team will now be picking up the Popcorn Time project and continuing on like previously,” a developer told TorrentFreak. “We are in a better position copyright wise as for us, because it’s build on our API. It’s as if we have built another interface to our website.” Whether or not this new version of Popcorn Time will last longer than the original remains to be seen, but the team sounds confident it can keep things running. “It’s our vision at YTS that we see through projects like these and that just because they create a little stir in the public, it doesn’t mean they are shut down,” a YTS dev said.

I Frankenstein

Frankenstein’s creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.

I was extremely looking forward to this, I loved the original Underworld, it was seriously bad ass and this looked to be like one hell of a movie, and I am fan of Erin Eckhart he was in a few movies that I really liked The Dark Knight, Olympus Has Fallen, Battle Los Angeles, Thank You for Smoking. This had an interesting start and things were developing then the bad guy of the movie turned out to be the bad guy from Underworld, the story took twists and turns where it didn’t make sense what so ever. It was an interesting fantasy type movie, and they were trying to bring the Frankenstein story to this age, but it just didn’t make sense. Erin Eckhart is a good actor but he needs help choosing scripts, he has had a few hits and misses, this was a miss for sure. It got a one out of five because it has Eric Eckhart and the Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker from Chuck).
