Hannibal (Season 2)

Hannibal

Hannibal

And they talk about Game of Thrones, and all dead… oops, sorry. Spoilers ahead, in the next paragraph. So, if you never saw Hannibal, think on it. I know it is sometimes a problem for digestion. But it is worth it.

My main complain is that sometimes it gets hard to follow. Sometimes explanations are given (like Freddie Lounds death), but some other are missing, like Abigail’s death. Nevertheless, everybody dies at the end? I imagine not, of course, as season 3 is out there. But yeah, this series is quite good.

Under the Dome (S01E01)

Dome just fall

Dome just fall

I know I should not watch more series. But I was tempted. Just by the name. Yeah. Under the Dome. A lot it can mean. Well, watched the pilot episode just for the kicks, and try to understand how cool it could get. At first it was mostly confused, and it seems it continues that way, for now. But the effects, the gore (check above) and Rachelle Lefevre was enough, for now, to make me wanting to watch the second one.

So, for now, will probably watch the second episode as well. Then, who knows if I’ll watch any more of them.

This is that kind of series that go in a crescendo. At the beginning it was kind of slow, with an episode-based story, mostly on S.H.I.E.L.D. (God, that is tiresome to write) agents working. Then a bigger story is formed, curiously, joining some of the different stories that were told before. At the end, a big crescendo and a great season finale.

The, you have action, your have scifi (a lot), you have girls for every taste, and a lot of humor. And if that is not enough, you have Skye, a sexy… erm… E.T.

How it’s made: Dream Cars (Season 1)

Bentley Continental GT Speed

Bentley Continental GT Speed

It is strange, but yeah, recently I’ve been watching this series. Good part, small episodes, about cars, with lots of robots that I like. Bad part, a lot of repetition at some point, given most cars are made in the same way. No surprise there. Anyway, it is a good series to understand the price of some of these cars, and also to understand how automatic or manual are they built. Trying not to make any spoilers, if a documentary can have spoilers, and if I recall correctly, from this first season, Porsche 911 is, undoubtful, the one which production is more automated.

Penguins of Madagascar (2014)

How Documentaries Are Done

Much better than the latest Madagascar movie. Of course it is full of non-sense. But it doesn’t try to be a Drama or a Romance. It is just non-sense with full of good laughs. The penguins are great. Great. And the jokes appear one after the other, at a velocity it is very difficult to grasp all of them.

One of the best quotes: “Nicholas! Cage them!” Lovely. 8 in 10 @ IMDB.

Ocean’s Twelve (2004)

Catherine Zeta-Jones in Ocean's Twelve

Catherine Zeta-Jones in Ocean’s Twelve

The worst one of the trilogy. If there is a reason to watch it until the end, the reason is the beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones. Other than that, the story is not interesting, the way it is presented is not the best, and some issues are not very clear. The third followed the approach of the first, making it a success. So, if I had to suggest anyone to watch Ocean’s trilogy, I would, doubtful, suggest to skip this one. Yeah, just 4 in 10 at IMDB.

Ocean’s Eleven (2001)

Bellagio Casino

Bellagio Casino

Seen Ocean’s Thirteen a lot of time ago. And a lot of time to see this one, and the Twelve too. And I am sorry I took to much. The movie is just great. The same kind of way to tell the story as the Thirteen, but anyway, entertaining, fun, with action. Great cast, although I am not a fan of Brad Pitt. Anyway, great. 8 in 10 @ IMDB.

The Expendables 3 (2014)

Two Mummies: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford

Two Mummies: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford

Not much to say about the movie. Half the cast are mummies, and I am not sure how they can still move. The new expendables (see the movie for the definition of new) aren’t bad ass as other expendables on previous movies. Jason Statham is mostly hidden. Mel Gibson as some class. Harrison Ford has some nice shots, too. Other than that, see the movie for the usual explosions, shots and fights. Other than that, a couple of humorous quotes. Ah… and Antonio Banderas is just crazy on this movie. At some point it gets really boring to listen to. And yeah, I know it is deliberate. Voted 6 in 10.

To finish, a small quote I liked:

Barney Ross: Better get out of that seat and move to the back, Christmas is coming.
Galgo: But it’s only June…

Lucy (2014)

Scarlett Johansson as Lucy

Scarlett Johansson as Lucy

In case you need a motivation to watch this movie, probably the picture above is enough. And I will not comment more on that in this post… well, that will be difficult…

Now, on the movie, the plot is interesting enough. Flaws? Probably lots of them. I did not really though on that while watching. If you know you are watching a Sci-Fi movie, let it go, and trust it. Do not try to rationalize. Of course, some inconsistencies can make a movie worst. But although some can exist on Lucy, I do not think they ruin anyhow the movie.

Also, the “National Geographic”-like interrupts are, somehow, interesting, although annoying on specific parts. Nevertheless, an 8/10@IMDB. Scalett’s fault too, right.

Teen Spirit (2011)

Lindsey Shaw as Lisa Summers

Lindsey Shaw as Lisa Summers

Not much to say about the story, as it is an old, old story, you watched over and over again in different movies. Also, not much to say on the plot quality (as in, is the story at least coherent?). So, what made me watch it till the end?

First, is has some good jokes. Yeah, not that many. But a few that are enough to entertain you. Second, because of the girls, and mostly important, Lindsey Shaw that is very, very cute, and Katie Sarife, also cute. Cassie Scerbo is not ugly or anything, but appears as the standard barbie-style, that is now mostly annoying.

And although it might seems weird, voting 6/10, more than Madagascar 3 madness.
