Lucy – 2014

A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

The concept of human brain develpment turned into a movie has been done a few times, but with the voice of Morgan Freeman and the acting and action capabilities of Scarlett Johansson it is bound to be a potent formula. It’s a movie that pulls you in and your on one hell of thrill ride as Scarlett Johansson turns from a ditzy club goer to a merciless warrior with super human capabilities. The action scenes are great and she kicks ass in them, and then there is her cold demeanor which she pulls off effortlessly. Loved the pace of the movie and the story, but then it just gets a little too weird and science-eee at the end. The conclusion should have been a bit less time travel and more ridiculous action, still a fun movie to watch.

 

Kill La Kill – Must See

Plot Summary: Ryuuko Matoi carries a large weapon shaped like half of a pair of scissors. She’s looking for the woman with the other half, who killed her father. Satsuki Kiryuuin, student council president of Honnouji Academy, is said to know the woman’s identity, so Ryuuko transfers there. Those who arrive at the school receive a special “goku uniform,” and Satsuki has used that power to rule the school in fear.

A fantastic anime from the creators of Gurren Laggan, with the same spirit and fire that fueled that anime and I especially love the style. You will always be routing for Ryuuki Matoi in the story and this is one of the best developed storylines I have seen in a long time, you can’t help but love all the characters, this is a rare breed of anime. And there is a fantastic twist towards the end that really gets you riled up. The action is nonstop if a lot of fan service nudity, but there is no episode that leaves you disappointed, and full of humor of every kind. If you have any inclination towards anime then this is a must, and if you haven’t seen it then you are really missing out.

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).

Enjoy your weekend people.

Robcop 2014

In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy – a loving husband, father and good cop – is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.

I have been waiting for a while for this movie, and it was worth the wait, it brought back good memories and they did Robocop justice. I wanted more robot action but I loved the plot of the movie and how it developed and bringing in Michael Keaton as the head of OCP was genius. I even loved the role played by Samuel L Jackson, it was like watching an angry News Commentator going at politicans in the middle of the movie. Joel Kinnaman was the perfect guy to play Alex Murphy, he had the same feel that the original guy did and he played it perfectly. I can’t wait to see the next Robocop after this one, it was just this good, and hoepfully next time around it’s against an army of robots. If you loved the old one then you will love this one.

Review: The Hunger Games – Catching Fire

TheHungerGamesCatchingFire1

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.

TheHungerGamesCatchingFire2

Jumping right into the story it picks up right where it left off with Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark as champions and the districts building hope because of what they did at the end. There was so much to the story to tell, over 2 hours and 30 minutes with a lot of twists and turns that brings Katniss & Peeta back into the fight with other champions as their foes, but with more on the line then they even know. It was a slow development in the beginning but it was building up, the characters all back in play with a few new interesting fighters. The fight in the dome felt a bit accelerated this time around, the bad guys in the dome didn’t feel that bad and died too quickly. I wanted so much more from it but the cliffhanger at the end of the movie honestly left me unsatisfied, I know sometimes there are movies that need sequels but this one felt like it was missing a piece. I’m not going to ruin it for anyone but you have to satisfy the person watching the movie even if you have a cliffhanger at the end.

Review: Gargantia On The Verdurous Planet

Gargantia

While fighting an intense inter-galactic war, a mecha pilot was accidentally warped into a space-time neither he nor the computer of his mecha could recognize. After waking up from a long-time hibernation, he found himself trapped on a planet, with human residents talking in an unknown form of language, using inferior technologies, and — most shocking to him — naturally breathable air.

Gargantia2

This Mecha anime starts off with an Epic battle, all forms of Mecha versus a jellyfish like Enemy who is more then formidable against there great numbers. From the start Gargantia had me excited from the start, I love when there is a mix of cel and cg animation to bring out the depth of the characters and action in the story. I was slowly getting to love the main character and his mech, they were totally out of place on this earth and slowly adapting to their current situation as circumstances changed. The story kept heading for an insane climax but at the end of all of it, it just didn’t hit what I was really expecting, I expected something Epic but instead I was left wanting more. I enjoyed this Mecha anime but wanted more.
