So, I finally completed the process of watching Girls, the first season. And I will probably watch the second season as well. It is not an interesting series, to say the truth. Some small interesting scenes, but that is all. Nevertheless, there are some girls. The subject of the series: girls, boyfriends, sex, drug, alcohol, more sex, gays, lesbians, more drug, more sex, fights between girls, and it continues like that.

These two guys are crazy. But also brilliant. You can find most of the show online on YouTube. In fact, the more interesting sketches are available online. Don’t be fooled by the amount of comments stating they stole the ideas for their show. Check the full video and you’ll notice the credits, all present. It is just natural to use ideas from other people. Just do not try to sell them as new.
Yes, I know ‘Allo ‘Allo is quite recent.. erm.. I mean.. quite old. The fact is that when it was in the TV I never watched it. I think I was too young. Now I finally decided to start watching it.
What can I say? I couldn’t stop laughing for the full episode. Just great.
This series is what we can call a diversity show. One can find boobs, sex, gays, incest, violence, whores, zombies, magic, dragons, horse meat… well, anything one might want to see. Ah, you can get some humor too. That’s good. The main problem here is the amount of characters and action in different points, that make some episodes very small in action, they are just a step in each of the different characters life, with no big changed in the story. Nevertheless, it is a great series (and it isn’t cheap, I imagine).
I know I have some friends poking me to read the books, but I hardly see a series or movie to read the book later, or read the book to watch the series or movie later. So, the series came first, then… series won.
There isn’t any doubt about what kind of movie this is. It is the stupid kind. Supposedly it is a comedy, but with stupid jokes. Not that stupid like a Scary Movie, but stupid enough to make you tired of them. Also, I already found some pornographic movies with more interesting story than this one. But, hey, five girls flashing their boobs. Yep, that is the only reason I watched the full movie. To give you a better idea about what I mean, check next two screen shots. I ended up voting 4 in IMDB, for the tits.
After Sherlock series, there is a new series named Elementary. Yes, with Watson and Sherlock. Again? Yes, again. And you are watching it? Sure, it is different.
And now, spoilers. I promise not to tell the story, just how the series work. Sherlock is a guy that worked in London as a consultant for Scotland Yard. He had some issues with drugs, and got interned. In the last day of internship, he escaped, just to tell there are flaws in the security system. He got a companion to help him not to get into drugs again. The companion is Watson, Joan Watson, a cute girl.
The cases analyzed by Sherlock are not related to the original books. That is great. Gives liberty, and doesn’t go for histories we all know by now. The only similarities are having Sherlock, one (well, female) Watson, that is also a doctor, and Sherlock being able to deduce things. Promises.
After three Transporter movies that I loved (third is not that good, but not bad), I found out that there is a Series based on it. Well, if you like the movies, then you like cars, speed, stunts, girls, action, beating, more cars, more speed and some more beating. If that is the case, the series delivers what it promises: cars (check above), girls (check below) and some beating and action. The worst part? Other than the simple story, the main actor: Chris Vance is always smiling, not the cool and cold behavior that Jason Statham used us.
I may continue watching the series. Why? Because I like cars, speed and girls, and when I decide to watch it, then it means I am in the mood for that, not for a big and dramatic story.
I lost the count, but this is the, what, fourth Ice Age movie? Fortunately, it got better than the last. We have more Scratch (I love that guy), we have less sentiment, and more humor. That is great. Regarding the animation, not much to say: it is great. The story, not bad, not relevant to the success of the movie.
Things I love: the liberty statue and Scratch Atlantis. Lovely. Also, Beethoven ninth (Ode to Joy) is always a great sound. But wouldn’t it be more adequate the Dvorak ninth (New World)?
Not only children like Lego. I love them. I usually buy Technic, but I like most themes, like City or Creator. This Christmas I found this box being sold at Lidl at a good price, and couldn’t resit buying it.
These Creator sets are interesting, as they include instructions for three models. This one also includes instructions for a forth model, available online. At the moment I just mounted the Helicopter that I show above. Easy construction techniques, as expected for this kind of model, but show that Lego designers just do that: design. They need to learn to play. Take the Copter, play a little with it. You will notice that the undercarriage pieces (that I point above) aren’t well fixed to the Copter body. During mounting, those pieces detach half a dozen times. And it is not that difficult to fix. With two or four more pieces it would get solid.
No, this is not a great action movie, nor a comedy, nor anything. This is a museum! Take a bunch of old actors for well known action movies, join them, make bullets fly around, add a couple of jokes, and a movie is done. The truth is that the first one was better. In this some of the good actors from the first, like Jet Li, aren’t there, and other bad actors, like Schwarzenegger, are some extra time. Note that I think Schwarzenegger have some good movies, but he is old. He seems some crazy guy out from the hospice. He doesn’t know how to handle a gun at all. Regarding Stallone, never a big fan from old movies. On some situations you notice he is old, and with difficulty to move. In some others, you don’t, probably because there is a double. Statham is probably the one acting better. I really miss the Transporter series. Van Damme is great in the movie. He is a great villain. This time we have Chuck Norris, but he is not acting natural. Hey, they all are actors for decades. Can’t them act?
I’ve read somewhere about someone complaining about the jokes, mainly the ones related with their old movies (check image bellow for an example). Those I can cope with. As I’ve said in the beginning, this is not an action movie, but a museum. It is to be interesting to watch for people who lived with their old movies, and therefore, their mention is not that bad.
But I should say, I’ve seen no action movie as Shoot’Em Up, with Clive Owen (not a standard bad ass). Probably they can learn a little from that one for the next Expendables (yes, accordingly with IMDB we’ll have it).
