    Attack on Titan trailer u guiz

    I am legitimately shocked by how accurate the look is (setting aside the spotty CGI). The Titans look spot-on, from the creeeeepy smiles to even how they move. The maneuvering gear looks really accurate too. I figured they’d change all that, but they really didn’t. I guess we’ll see whether or not everything else is accurate.

    Finally got the chance to watch Rise of the Guardians. I was surprised at how emotionally powerful/impactful it was. I found myself tearing up at quite a few places.

    I think it’s because it cuts right to the core of what it means to be full of wonder, and for me that’s something I’ve been trying to recapture ever since I lost it as a child. The nostalgia is strong in this film.

    I was especially surprised as it is a Dreamworks film, following in the line of works like Flushed Away and Madagascar and Over The Hedge. I thought the quality of storytelling was closer to what I’d expect from Disney/Pixar, up there with Wall-E and Up and Toy Story.

    I’ve watched it twice now, and had trouble controlling the waterworks both times. It really is a powerful movie with really well designed and well-voiced characters.

    I also really liked the way they portrayed Jack as a Peter Pan-like (or Puck-like) wild child, and not at all like some of the not-so-friendly previous incarnations, where he has traditionally been cast as a villain, or as an old man like a kind of unfriendly, scowling Santa. It’s more close to the traditional image I remember from stories and fairytales, a little bit impish, a little bit rude, a bit of an urchin, but ultimately kind and caring at heart.

    Saw Man From U.N.C.L.E. a few days ago. Good spy action with some nice comedy from how the two leads played off each other. I also liked that it embraced that it was set in the early 1960s, instead of trying to modernize the concept.

    I also just saw American Ultra. It’s basically, “what if Jason Borne was a stoner?” and it works pretty well. And I think it demonstrates that Kristen Stewart isn’t a bad actor – she just needs the right part.

    Hank Pym is the real Ant-Man in the comics, but they couldn’t have him be Ant-Man in the movie (and therefore the hero) is because in the comics Hank Pym is a wife-beater and an asshole.

    The Bourne movies are still great, by the way.

    I always used to have a thing where I’d want to watch a movie and couldn’t decide on one, and somehow always ended up watching one of the Bourne movies again… yeah, did the same thing tonight. Tonight’s fare was Supremacy. I have no clue which of the three Matt Damon ones is my favorite (I’ve still never seen Legacy), but Supremacy is definitely a good movie. All of them are.

    What are some other action movies that are like the Bourne movies, anyway? Maybe I should broaden my horizons.

    You might enjoy Gamer, if you haven’t seen it yet, Swenson. It’s King Leonidas as a criminal in a “hunger games” scenario, being puppet-controlled by a famous video game champion. If he/his player wins, he is free (and alive). Great action scenes, and a plot that goes much deeper than you might expect.

    It also has

    Jack Reacher is also quite like Bourne in many ways, it’s a Tom Cruise thing where he’s an army cop/investigator, investigating a murder case that turns into a huge conspiracy theory, and also has one of the best fight scenes outside of a specifically fighting-based movie.

    Oh yeah, Jack Reacher! Watched that on a whim several months ago, I’d actually never even heard of it before but I saw it on Netflix and gave it a go. I liked it a lot.

    I guess that’s the sort of movie I’m looking for… action, with mysteries/conspiracies, but fairly grounded, where the protagonist doesn’t have a lot of resources and has to survive just based on their skills.

    I recommend the A-Team movie. While it occasionally edges into not-quite-realistic stuff, those moments (to me, at least) have a feel of “so stupid it has to work”, and are pretty awesome.

    Also, American Ultra whenever that comes out on DVD. Basically, it’s “what if Jason Borne was a stoner?” Jesse Eisenberg in Zombieland-mode, and Kristen Stewart in the kind of role she’s suited for.

    You mean Cryogenically Frozen Bitchface?

    It may not have much action, but The Fugitive is one of the better manhunt against-the-odds conspiracy-theory movies out there. Indiana Jones is a successful doctor, wrongfully imprisoned for killing his wife. Using his advanced medical skills and intellect he is able to escape and evade capture for long enough to uncover and expose the conspiracy cover-up that sent him to jail.

    Enemy of The State is always worth another watch. Will Smith in a gritty government-surveillance dystopia where he has been declared persona non grata, and has to survive and clear his name while avoiding the cameras and gun-drones, etc.

    I have also been told about John Wick, and The Raid (series, I think there’s like 3 of them), but I haven’t seen them so I can’t either confirm or deny their alleged similarity to Bourne.

  3.  

    John Wick is kind of similar, but it’s more of a revenge flick than a conspiracy one. Still one of my favorite action movies ever made, watch it if you want to see some sexy, gorgeous fight scenes.

    Salt, Hanna, and Die Hard are the movies I’d recommend.

    I’ve been watching DBZ movies lately, because idk why not, and I have to say, the newest ones are pretty good! Battle of Gods was definitely the superior movie to Resurrection of F, but both were definitely still quite enjoyable. For all the complaints about the end of RoF being a copout (which it kind of was), I honestly didn’t think it was that bad. It’s not like they didn’t set it up from the beginning (even if the MASSIVE red herring about how you expect it to end is annoying).

    Minor spoilers, if anyone other than me actually cares about spoilers to Dragon Ball Z movies:

    As for Battle of Gods, well, it was pretty darn good, although very silly at times in the beginning. I honestly don’t really have much in the way of complaints about it. I liked it a lot. I doubt either movie would make much sense to anybody who doesn’t know Dragon Ball, but for people who do, they were a lot of fun.

    Basically, it was . . . okay, but it there was lots of lost potential in there for it to be something truly worth watching. In hindsight, I probably would have waited for it to come to Redbox and then watched it when I had nothing better to do.

    Has anyone seen The Good Dinosaur? Thoughts?

    Here’s what I posted to my facebook, spoiler-free:

    Mum and I went to see The Good Dinosaur today. verdict: far better than expected. And that’s saying something for the studio that produced the Toy Story series, Wall-E, and Up. There’s usually at least one really good tear-jerker moment in every Disney-Pixar film, but this one is just full of them. Very powerful storytelling, incredible computer animations (the water effects, unbelievable!) and flawless use of body language and expression to convey emotions without needing to spell it out with dialogue. Highly recommended.

    And the Pixar Short before the movie was darling, an exploration of what it means to be a first-generation migrant child, torn between the wonders of he new world and the traditions of the old, but told in typically cutesy Pixar style. A fun and imaginative little anecdote based on the childhood experience of one of Pixar’s animators.

    Given that I’m addicted to just about anything produced by Rooster Teeth anyway, I ended up watching their (first, I guess) feature film, Lazer Team. I was pleasantly surprised! I can be hit or miss with comedies, especially if they rely too much on “dumb” humor. (you know, guys getting kicked in the balls and suchlike) But I genuinely enjoyed the whole thing!

    Obviously I’m biased because I love Rooster Teeth, and the fact that many of the actors were familiar to me helped a lot, but I went into it thinking it would be an OK way to kill an hour and a half and that I probably would find it mildly funny but ultimately not very good. So the fact that I genuinely liked it a lot means something. It was hardly perfect—the effects were pretty dicey at times, there’s some plot holes (or at least questions) I noticed even while watching it, and some of the jokes did fall flat—but I found it both funny and engaging.

    I’ve seen some people complaining about the number of Rooster Teeth references, but I honestly didn’t think there were all that many—there was like one or two lines that were direct reference (a Red vs. Blue line in particular that I noticed), and everything else was minor background stuff, like somebody dressed up as Ruby from RWBY and Kerry dressed up as a hobbit. I was sufficiently into the movie that I probably missed some of that sort of stuff, too. I dunno if non-RT fans would even notice the references in the first place, though.

    IP MAN 3 was AWESOME!

    I was happy that t wasn’t “just” a kung fu movie, it was a sensitive and occasionally sappy biopic of a famous man who did kung fu. The fight scenes were brilliant, not because they were flashy or fantastical, but because they were grounded, realistic, and deeply rooted in the principles and techniques of wing chun, as compared to Ip Man 2, which was choreographed in part by a hung gar guy using wires and camera effects. If you’re not convinced yet, then I’ll mention that the action director in charge of fight choreography was none other than the legendary Yuen Woo-Ping, who has directed countless martial arts movies, including the bulk of Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen’s works, as well as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Grandmaster, The Matrix, Kill Bill, Drunken Master, Snake In Eagle’s Shadow, Once Upon a Time In China, and a long list of classics. His experience and knowledge of martial arts (as well as that of the actors) really shines.

    But the story was so much more than the fight scenes, and you really get a sense of the deep sense of morality and responsibility Ip Man held because of his position and skills.

    Anyway, if you love kung fu movies and also period dramas, you’ll really love Ip Man 3.

    In a surprising turn of events, I saw two whole movies in theaters this week. The second was Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It was fun, but hardly a classic. I read the book a few years ago so I was really confused about why I didn’t remember, like, any of the plot, but that’s because they changed quite a bit of it. It skimped a lot on the Pride and Prejudice side of things in favor of the zombie side of things, to the point that it kinda felt like they were just checking P&P plot points off. I feel that if you didn’t already know the story of Pride and Prejudice, you’d be somewhat confused about who everyone is and why they’re doing things, because they didn’t spend a lot of time setting things up. (in fairness, I was confused about why people were doing things even in the zombie parts, so apparently they were just plain bad at setting everything up, not just the P&P side of things)

    I don’t regret seeing it (especially because my sister paid for my ticket :D), and I’d heartily recommend it once it ends up in Redbox if you’re looking for something not too serious, but again, not exactly a classic.

    Oh, and as for the most important criteria of judging any Pride and Prejudice materials—Darcy wasn’t nearly attractive enough (and I think he stole Harry Dresden’s coat), but Bingley was pretty cute.

    Also it got me to reread Pride and Prejudice over the weekend, so that’s a plus. I haven’t reread it since high school, and boy do I have a different perspective now. I had to keep stopping every few pages and be amazed by how similar people 200 years ago were to people now. Like Mr. Collins proposing to Elizabeth—I literally went through that in college (well, with being asked out, not being proposed to).

    The blu-ray release for The Force Awakens was announced recently, so I guess this deviation of topics is somewhat relevant.

    I’ve come to a sad realization: I don’t like Episode 7. Having been a Star Wars fan most of my life, and a diehard fanboy into my late teens, it’s a weird thing to admit. But the problems I had after seeing it opening night have compounded. They’re inescapable and, as for my perspective on an entire numbered entry into the series, unforgivable. Because Episode 7 is entirely with imagination and creativity. Characterization and narrative are important, but so is the world encapsulating them. Think about any time you’ve seen an alien design or a spaceship and thought, “That looks like something from Star Wars.” That’s how important worldbuilding is to a Star Wars movie and JJ Abrams & Co. barely looked at the ball, much less dropped it. Rehashed X-Wings. Rehashed stormtroopers. Rehashed TIE Fighters. Rehashed star destroyers. Rehashed Death Star (in both practical and narrative function!). The sociopolitical scenario is exactly the same. The greater villain is a pale, spectral, throne-occupying figure and the lesser villain is one clearly designed to homage Darth Revan. There’s nothing about Jakku to differentiate it from Tatooine. There are no memorably-designed alien characters like Chewie, Yoda, Jabba the Hutt… even Jar Jar. And apart from BB-8, there’s nothing creative with any technological offering: starships, weapons, devices, even samples of civilization.

    It’s far from the worst Star Wars movie, but it’s without doubt the least interesting. And I was really, really looking forward to it. Now… not so much.

    I finally saw Warcraft a few days ago. I give it a 3/5 – you probably won’t go away angry or disappointed, but there’s better fantasy movies out there.

    I liked that there’s a lot stuff in there that’s straight from the games, which at least shows that the people who made it not only played the games, but enjoyed them. We need more of this type of person making movies based on video games, rather than people who have maybe looked at the box. And it’s not just a few lines, or the odd reference; the plot is essentially that of the first game, and characters generally look like they do in the games.

    Unfortunately, that’s a bit of a double-edged sword. Designs that work well for sprites or stylized game avatars don’t quite translate well to live-action. So while the human armor might be accurate, it looks more like a bunch of people cosplaying, rather than wearing actual, functional armor.

    But just because they generally got the look doesn’t mean they succeeded across the board. For some reason, the major orc characters that we have official artwork for look nothing like said artwork. Feel free to google the Warcraft characters “Blackhand,” “Gul’dan,” and “Orgrim Doomhammer” and compare the movie characters to the earlier artwork. And there’s literally no reason for these changes. The orcs are all motion-capture CGI – there’s literally no reason for these changes. I mean, they didn’t even get Orgrim’s hammer right.

    The other major problem the movie has is a lack of breathing room. The movie is two hours long, yet there’s almost no real time for character development or any dialogue that’s not exposition. A lot of scenes just cut off, as if the movie is going “okay, on to the next plot point!” I’ve heard that about a half-hour of material got cut, but I feel like this kind of project really deserves more time than a feature film allows – maybe a miniseries would have been better, especially since most of the cast I recognized were from TV.

    There’s also some weird, random deviations from the established lore, which I’ll hide for spoilers.

    So, yeah. If you’re looking for something to watch on a night out, Warcraft would be a solid choice. But if you’re expecting something along the lines of Lord of the Rings (or are a major fan of the franchise), you’ll be disappointed.

    Given how much time was spent establishing a baby orc who I’m pretty certain grows up to be Thrall from WarCraft 3 and WoW, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they were aiming to make an adaptation of the third game. But they still have a whole other game and its expansion pack to get through, so we’re probably in for at least one more movie that goes through the plot at a break-neck pace.

    And honestly, if you really want to get the general plot while not having to pay to see the movie and getting a decent story and characters, just read the Let’s Play of the game over on the LP Archive.

    It’s good. I actually broke down and bought a membership and archives access on Something Awful to read the LP of the second game. Unfortunately, the LP of the expansion pack is only partly done, and hasn’t been updated in years, so it’ll never get added to the archive.

    Tarzan! Anybody seen it yet? My thoughts once I’ve had some sleep.

    ETA: impressions (some spoilers):

    Update: Tarzan is somehow even better in an uncomfortable chair on a smaller cinema screen.

    Huh. I haven’t heard great things about it, but maybe I’ll give it a watch. If nothing else, I’d be supporting Alexander Skarsgård.

    Skarsgård’s Blue Steel is better than Zoolander’s. :yesh

    Kubo and the Two Strings. Go and see it. Really clever storytelling, memorable characters, and cliches that make sense within the story and don’t feel cliched.

  12.  

    I’m seconding Taku on this one. It’s freaking gorgeous.

    The Little Prince is also a cute adaptation if you have Netflix.
