Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Season 2)

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.

Maigret – Night at the Crossroad (S02E01)

Maigret – Night at the Crossroads

Third third episode of Maigret’s series, with Atkinson, is great. Not just the plot, from Simenon’s original story, but for the way the scenes are recorded. I know this is being typical for every episodes, as the series goes on, but I just think this one is the best. Great scenarios. Great imaging details.

As for Bean.. .erm.. Atkinson, getting more used to see him as a serious character. Serene. Assertive. Like.

Red Sparrow (2018)

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.

Under The Dome (Season 2)

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.

Under the Dome (S01E01)

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.

Ocean’s Twelve (2004)

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)

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.

Cube Zero (2004)

Yeah, I liked the first two (Cube and Hypercube) and noticed recently that a Cube Zero was available since 2004. So, I decided to watch it. Well, given it mentions zero, this should, probably, be considered the first on the three movies (you know, that stuff like Star Wars, making time go back…).

I like this movie not because of the concept, or jokes, but because I like to wonder what traps will be in the next room. In fact I think this concept would be great in a computer game. Anybody around willing to write a script for it? Maybe I can find some friends to develop it.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011)

The special effects are more advanced than in the previous Ghost Rider movie, but they aren’t better. And the way the movie was recorded, in a way that seems to add dynamic, sucks. At least, I did not like. The story is.. meh… nothing special, and with lots of flaws. And, at the end, it is not clear what is the status of Ghost Rider.

Talking about girls, one do not just simply replace Eva Mendes. And one do not just replace Eva Mendes by some Violante Placido. She has a nice pair of eyes… but Eva Mendes has.. erm.. two great pairs, not just eyes.
