Deadpool (2016) Review

Deadpool was done right. Like straight from the comics done right, nicely done guys. It’s ridiculously funny throughout with a great cast and characters to compliment the Merc with a mouth. The dialogue was equal parts hilarious, filled with pop culture and filthy, just how I like it. Even the action and visuals were pretty great considering the budget; they really worked within their means and it paid off.

“You even look in her direction, and I’ll show you that I’ve got some hard spots… that came out wrong… or did it?”

Movie News Report: Aquaman’s new look and Spider-Man Returns Home

I am trying something new. This one will be a rough draft, need criticism. Do tell me if it is crap or makes no sense.

This will be an end of the week wrap up of what has happened in the geeky world of movies. Decided to do this about an hour before I wrote it so am just going off memory. Fill in the gaps in the comments, I know I missed something.

Also I’ll include some movie features I liked from the blogosphere. I follow a lot of nerds!

Fantastic Four (Trailer #1) Review

Well, well, well, look who’s come out to play. About time they showed something. Had no pictures, no footage, not even any official concept art. If I wasn’t such a massive nerd I wouldn’t even know this was coming out. Anyway it’s here now so let’s review. The film is definitely a far more serious affair than its predecessor, that can’t be a bad thing. The first half of this trailer is Interstellar, shockingly so. The cast looks good, visuals look okay but too little footage to really judge. Hated that voice over! So generic, could have been for anything. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer, more so if you disagree.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) Review

Just saw Apes last night and yes I know it’s late but wow was this film worth the wait. Never thought Apes of horses would be my favourite film of the year but that’s where we are, got to love the movies! The acting is solid, the script plays with the plot brilliantly, you like and route for the characters both ape and human, the action is fast paced and visuals are unbelievable, those apes are 100% CGI. What really sets this film apart from the majority of films is the unrelentingly serious nature they apply to the material. The story explores so many aspects to human nature that its just fascinating to think about. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

“Apes! Together, strong!”

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) Review

X-Men Days of Future Past is certainly one of the better X-Men films although to me it’s not the best. The acting and style of the 70’s timeline was excellent. The human (or mutant) element was strong throughout the film especially between Xavier and Erik which is a necessity for an X-Men franchise. The story was fresh and benefitted from adapting a brilliant comic story arc, and even if the film didn’t quite live up to that story it still had a deeper concept at its core. The visuals are great and from the mutant powers to the near costume drama set up by the 70’s timeline. Bryan Singer went back into his franchise with ease and whilst I still think Mathew Vaughn’s interpretation of the franchise was better this was still a fine X-Men film. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Professor X: “You took the things that mean the most to me.”

Magneto: “Maybe you should have fought harder for them.”

The Watch (2012) Review

The watch felt like somebody put a group of comedians into a room and told them to make jokes about an alien invasion, worst thing about this film is its non-existent direction by anybody behind the cameras. Nevertheless it’s funny at times because the people they picked are generally funny comedians so it’s hard not to at least smile at them being uncontrolled. It’s pretty bad as a movie but it does make you occasionally laugh so I putting this in the average list of films. I wouldn’t tell anybody to see but I also wouldn’t scream no! If they said they wanted to see it.

From the writers, directors and actors they will all be hunted in the death games. Weapon of choose the mace and I am talking medieval mace.
