“ Amazing movie very motivational!

I'll cut some parts to keep myself motivated for sure.

I like the way Rocky is really simple and doesn't understands the rationalizations more complicated people have. Yes they are kind of smarter, but he's better set than they are. Kind of reminded me of Forrest Gump, which was lacking intelligence and comprehension severely, BUT was using what he had a lot better.

The parts where he makes the speeches are really great! ” - WinGeD CoLoSsuS

Director: Ridley Scott
“ The movie was a bit boring I admit it. But I liked how Robin was real not some cartoon knight in white armor who saves the day. He was kind of a douche bag but also a very honorable man.

And I like they took the time to develop his personality and the personalities of other characters :).

I think they should have made a sequel, well I would have watched it. :)

Also the movie was kind of too long. But all in all it was OKEY, it was decent ;). Also I liked the complicated relationship between him and maid Marian, that it wasn't like easy love on first sight in a glimpse. They really took time for that as well. And I respect that. ” - WinGeD CoLoSsuS

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
Boyka is back. This time he is fighting in the first ever inter-prison tournament with one knee. (96 mins.)
“ The fighting scenes are top notch! They're made simply fantastic! The way Adkins does his kicks and other techniques it's colossal. I guess they are the best I've ever seen :).

I like the plot line as well. Although it doesn't top the best movies like Dark Knight.

I did like how Yuri goes through a journey, a big experience through the film and becomes a better person, maybe not better but a stronger person.

The characters are great.

The music is suitable, for the moments. ” - WinGeD CoLoSsuS
 
40.
Undisputed 2: Last Man Standing (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
Sequel to the 2002 film. This time, Heavyweight Champ George "Iceman" Chambers is sent to a Russian Jail on trumped-up drug charges. (98 mins.)
“ It was great. The new actor for the George "Iceman" Chambers is a lot better. The previous had his charm, but this one has a completely different personality, which I like more.

Also that drama with his divorce was unneeded and I'm glad they removed it.

Finally it was MMA not just boxing which gives a lot more to work with, making fights more dynamic.

I liked how he understood that he really has no other choice than to go with the mobsters demands. And how he understood that he has to "play" Yuri's game or he'll have very little chance to win.

I liked how the both fighters were shown as honorable and honest people. Also it was great to see Yuri as christian.

Again the fighting is simply awesome. Scott Adkins has set a new level for fighting scenes.

The jail was a lot tougher and intense that's why I liked it more. Although I expected to see some prisoner conflicts not just George fighting the staff. ” - WinGeD CoLoSsuS

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X

Director: Walter Hill
“ It was good, not as good as the sequels movies.

It had less fighting, but more illustration of the prison life.

The final fight was great. George was good such a tough guy. You can really tell. ” - WinGeD CoLoSsuS

Perseus braves the treacherous underworld to rescue his father, Zeus, captured by his son, Ares, and brother Hades who unleash the ancient Titans upon the world. (99 mins.)
“ The movie was enjoyable. The first monster falling on the village was great - the 2 headed (I guess it was Python) creature.

Liam Neeson was great in his Zeus role. I really liked how he continued asking for forgiveness even though Hyades betrayed him in the first place.

The idea of Perseus being even more powerful than a god, because he was half human was really likable.

The final battle between Titans and Zeus and Hyades was great :).

7/10 - 02/02/2013 ” - WinGeD CoLoSsuS

The story of martial-arts master Ip Man, the man who trained Bruce Lee. (130 mins.)
Director: Kar Wai Wong
“ Сюжет был не особенно интересным, очень много переходов между временами, трудно было уловить нить сюжета.

Мало боевых сцен, а те, что были - короткие.

Не было накала страстей, не понятно почему "злодей" убивает отца девушки, почему она не может просто отомстить, или попросить помощи у Ип Мана.

Тема его открытия школы в Гонг Конге не раскрыта.

Понравились не многие боевые сцены. Красивые дожди и замедленные съёмки. Бои тоже не так хорошо сняты, как хотелось бы. Из-за постоянных переходов камер, или неудачных углов видно, что он ударил и тот отлетел, но трудно понять, как.
