Finally finished the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. While during the first episodes of this season I got quite unmotivated to watch it, when I got back and watched two new episodes, the story got better, and my interest got back. Just finished the second season in a couple of days, and now preparing to watch the third. Regarding story, nothing brilliant, but good enough to capture your attention, and enough suspense to make you want to see the next episode soon. Another thing I like is that each episode has its ups and downs, allowing us to have some fun, and not just distress for the drama part.
It is quite weird when you want to watch a super hero movie, with action and some fun, and you get a drama. You still have the superheroes, but old and decrepit. And when you lost your mother a couple days ago, it gets even sad. Specially as (spoilers…) both old and decrepit heroes end dead.
While the drama is the main flow of the movie, you have a couple of fun moments and a couple of action. But in my opinion it lacks diversity. After a couple moves it gets repetitive. I think that the director could take a little more of the new mutants diversity (you will understand when you see the movie) for a funnier battle.
Well, for a fan of the original series, it will be hard to like the new one. First, MacGyver is too young, or at least, I feel it that way. Second, a little too cocky. But it was the first episode. Probably I could adapt and watch some more episodes. That is something that happened a little with some other series, like the new Knight Rider, or the Transporter series. So, lets give it another chance.
For some time that I did not watch a movie. And this is something I am ashamed of, but when I downloaded Red Sparrow I was expecting a Marvel movie. Sorry, I am no big fan of the comic books, and some of the character names are unknown for me. Well, guess what, no, it wasn’t. And I am not sure what this movie is. If a drama, if action, horror or just some kind of erotic movie. Anyway, it mostly fails on all of them. For drama, it doesn’t make anybody in tears, even with all the violence. For action, it lacks real action. For horror, it has too many boring parts. For erotic, it has too much violence.
It is not a bad movie. You can watch it without getting bored, even if some scenes are slow and lacking interest. But for other scenes, you want turn around and ask, is the violence over yet?
In any case, voted 7 in 10 @ IMDB.
Well, undoubtedly, Fast and Furious is just another franchising, but the last (yeah, the eighth) is just great. Not as an action movie, or as a car movie. But for fun! Really. A gave a lot of bigger laughs with this movie than with some “comedies”. But this sequence shown above, with Jason Statham, is just great. Not just the baby is cute, but Jason is a good enough actor to be cheerful and cute, despite of his “brutality” history on these movie. Hope the quality of this sequence of action/affection can inspire for future movies. Love it.
The second season continues with more strange events, more fantasy, more deaths and revivals. When something starts to make sense, it quickly stop, and new strange things happen. I am curious how the third season will deal with the Series cancellation, and if the end will make sense.
Meanwhile, Rachelle Lefevre is a good reason to watch the next season, too.
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.
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.
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.
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.
