This is the end (2013)

This is the end

This is the end

Crazy movie, fun movie. I do not like much this movie actors (exception for Emma Watson), but although in a crazy way, the movie focus an aspect that I think is a problem in the world, nowadays. What problem? Redemption! A lot of people (mostly Christians, probably, and before any further comments, I will net you know I am a Catholic Christian) that trust in God (I am not so sure I do, but that is not the point for this post), think they can buy the “Heaven Eternity” at the end of their lives, showing compassion, or similar. This is a problem because people assassinate others, rob banks, perform frauds, etc, etc, because they trust that, at the end, they will ask for redemption. Probably this though is not logic, or is wrong, but I think it IS a real problem.

Well, back to the movie… good to know there are bikini girls in the heaven. It makes me much more happy if going there. Also, bad to know that Rhianna is a bad girl, and will go to hell. Regarding Emma Watson, well, we know she as some sins, but we aren’t yet aware if she will get redemption for her sins.

Other than that, it is difficult to explain the movie. Just watch it.

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

Pumpkins

Pumpkins

Yeah, I couldn’t post a Jack image. It would be too easy to predict. On Sally it would be the same. So I decided to post Pumpkins, making this way a tribute to a big friend.

On the movie, I confess I was expecting more. Probably because I saw Corpse Bride and I loved it, and was expecting more from this. No, not that it is bad. But when you are watching a movie that you are expecting to be bad, without a story, and it surprises you, you get very interested on it. In the other hand, when somebody tells you it is great, and it is not as you imagined, you get disappointed. So, probably this is what happened.

Nevertheless, the story is nice, there are jokes all around, and the animation and characters design are very nice. Voted 8 in 10 @ IMDB.

Y tu mamá también (2001)

Maribel Verdú as Luisa Cortés

Maribel Verdú as Luisa Cortés

If at first this (Mexican) movie can seems an Erotic movie, it is much more than that. You can start suspecting that if you notice the classification as a Drama movie, and later, when you start wondering why an erotic movie would have a 7.7 classification at IMDB.

No, not because of the boobies (there aren’t that many) or the cunts (not so many, too). But because of the message the movie passes. You won’t understand it fully until the end (or at least, I did not). The way the narrator interrupts the movie to say something, and the fact that he doesn’t say, always, relevant things to the movie, makes it kind of harder to understand the real reason for the way the movie rolls.

If you do not get easily shocked with sex talk, and some nudity, then probably you will like to watch the movie and, and the end, it will make you think about (yours) live.

Star Trek (2009)

Zoe Saldana as Uhura

Zoe Saldana as Uhura

Yeah, only me to put a screenshot with Uhura for Star Trek. But then, if you notice my other post about the last Star Trek movie, I put some underwear as well. So, for consistency, I decided to follow the same idea.

And, yeah, as usual (not really, but…) I watched these last two Star Trek movies in the wrong order, so I missed some details in the last one, that were explained properly on this. So, sorry for the spoilers. Stop here if you do not want any.

When watching the second movie I though our good old Leonard Nimoy (aka THE Spock) was some kind of father for the new Spock. Just understood they are the same with this movie.

Regarding the story, I must confess that I though of this dual life (travel back in time, change the future) was a decent solution to continue this saga. It allows to construct new lives for the characters we all know, without the weight on “hey, you are changing the story.. it didn’t go that way”. So, now two different stories can be told, in parallel. Probably (mostly sure) a lot of Star Trek fans did not like this solution. But for me, it was a damn good choice.

Ninja Cheerleaders (2008)

Trishelle Cannatella,  Ginny Weirick  and Maitland McConnell

Trishelle Cannatella, Ginny Weirick and Maitland McConnell

The Ninja Cheerleaders movie is mostly bad. Thankfully there are three cute girls (well, I would rate Ginny Weirick, as April, the cutest, then Trishelle Cannatella, as Courtney, the second one, and finally Maitland McConnell, Monica, as the less cute).

Enough on the girls. The story is Hollywood in all ways. The fighting (yeah, they are ninja) is too bad. Their acting is bad as well.

What you can find interesting other than the girls? Well, you have George Takei. That’s always fun. Also, you might recognize Eric Stonestreet in a scene, as well.

If you want boobies, no, these three girls do not show any. Unfortunately. There are a few shown in some cut scene sequences, but very bad. The best you can find are a few seconds with the two girls bellow.

Bubble (2005)

Doll factory @ Bubble

Doll factory @ Bubble

A strange movie. Accordingly with some comments on IMDB, it was filmed by non-authors (that explain a lot, both on good and bad acting), using these people houses, clothes and lives as base for the movie. The story is told very slowly. Just the end is mostly let to the watcher to think about. Not really my type of movie. Nevertheless, I can’t classify it as a bad movie. There is a plot, a correct sequence of events, with some interesting sound track, all this with an interesting way of telling the story.

And I couldn’t let this pass without posting a shot of one of the characters bedroom. Note the poster.

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

The Motherfucker

The Motherfucker

A sequel, and as sequel it is, can’t be better than the first one. But good enough. Good for the fun. Good for the comedy. Acceptable on the action, and kind of regular on the story. Bad we do not have Big Daddy, but fun to have the Motherfucker. And as he.. erm.. she, if a mother, is still alive, we should have a sequel, again. We know kick-ass will still be there (or the movie name would be wrong), but I hope Mindy continues as well. Just took to that eye expression! :-)

The LEGO Movie (2014)

The LEGO Movie

The LEGO Movie

Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship!

How I miss old blue Spaceship theme from Lego. And Benny, with that faded away logo, and the detail of the broken helmet really make me recall good old times. I am missing them so much that the new spaceship from The LEGO Movie, already on sale, is tempting me so much.

But let me get back to the movie. First, the story is counter-nature. All adults I know that like to play with LEGO do not glue their constructions. The only persons I know that glue constructions are from LEGO. Now, that adults might not like to play with children, that might be true, just like older children do not like to play with small kids. In any case, let me state that I want to have kids, and want to have kinds in the age of playing with LEGO, just to have an excuse to buy LEGO sets.

The animation in this movie is great. It is very cool that everything (with few exceptions) is LEGO. For example, in the image above (not easy to see, probably) all that white mass is dust. The same happens with fog and water. They are all made of LEGO. Just great.

Although I did not like much the LEGO-Human interaction (I would prefer a simple all-LEGO movie), there are some details that are very cool. For example, how the ghost bellow have a small string attached.

Voted 9 in 10. Waiting for the second movie. And for that SPACESHIP! Spaceship! Spaceship!

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

A poor cat :-)

A poor cat :-)

I did not watch any of the previous movies by Wes Anderson. A friend told me, you “love it” or “hate it”. I can’t say I loved it, but I liked it. I confess the first half hour was a little boring, but then the movie got some more dynamic, more action, more fun. The peak of fun was this cat, shown in the screenshot above. Poor cat, but lovely image.

The story is nothing brilliant, but the way it is told is very nice. The detail of adding text overlays in the objects in order to allow us to understand better what is going on is also very cool. By the way, Tony Revolori is just great on this movie.

Voted 8 in 10 at IMDB.

X2 (2003)

Nice nails work!

Nice nails work!

For some time that IMDB is suggesting me to watch this movie, and I wasn’t sure if I’ve had watched it. Nevertheless, after watching it, I continue not being able to be sure. But I think I did not.

The thing I like on this movie is that we have a lot of mutants, with a lot of different powers. Wolverine movie is mostly him. I like to see what the invent. Like, for example, the nails above. Cute.

Other than that, the story is standard, with interesting jokes. Liked it enough to vote 8 in 10 at IMDB. To conclude, I can only say that Iceman is a chicken. Couldn’t him control all that water? It would be easy…
