Wayward Pines (2015)
Where are all the dam crickets!?!
Phenomenal start to the show , i really do love these creepy mystery shows a lot of people lack the courage to take a book and turn it into a movie or film these days let alone do a decent Job of it. But from what i can see so far , this show has great potential to be a hit!
Matt Dillon you can tell is going to become more and more badass as the show goes on , considering its just him for around 45 minutes trying to make peace of what's going on , he really does hold his own on screen. I really cannot wait to see what more there is to come from the show , because so far i think i have found a winner.
The general tone of the tone is creepy and dark , you can already tell the law officials have absolutely no conscience what so ever. A prime example of that is Sheriff Pope (Terrence Howard) is just casually eating a ice cream while Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) is saying his colleague has been tortured and mutilated , his reaction was bone chilling.
I don't want to go into to much detail because its the pilot and this small review was for people on the ropes like i was! Watch the show and thank me later , because its brilliant.
And where are all the dam crickets?!
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Ultron was a stand up comic
Got back from a midnight release this morning , and i didn't want to review the film straight away as i wanted it to sink in to brain. Having said that my opinion hasn't really changed as much as i would of liked it to.
Joss whedon , in a lot of ways has pretty much lied to the audience about his own film , its not overall shocking someone trying to promote the film by setting up a few custom truths , but i think the fans deserved better from him , so lets start with a few bullet points.
1: Ultron in the terms of evil robots go , is up there with a more heavily depressed WALL-E , hes way way to slapstick for a super villain in this , this was supposed to be dark and tonight i saw the Disney side to things.
2: Romanov is a nice character but who ever agreed with Wheadon to make her a main character or the center of attention for this blockbuster was out of their depth , giving romanov a more visual back story is fine , but the romantic element with banner and herself was again Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Romanov would never let feelings get in the way of THE JOB.
3: Hulk little to no screen time , really frustrating this having just brought my hand hulk cup ready to cheer the green bastard on to smash! I think i timed it at 20 minutes probably less! Banner spends to much time moaning about hulks destruction and not about going bananas and helping , you would think now he has some control over being the hulk and being Bruce banner he would be happy to get angry! He knew scarlet witch was messing with his brain and i know bruce is a gentle soul , but hes also smart enough o know when it wasn't his fault!
4: This film wasn't set up for civil war , Thor grabbed Tony by the throat , END OF WAR... that was the only act of punishment Tony got for making , LOLtron. And he didn't have a darker side in this film , he was just a lot more impatient to get the ball rolling with protecting the earth. So that was just a big big big let down! In fact the screen time in the first movie with loki's scepter manipulating them all on the boat was more intense than this entire films disagreement with stark and loltron.
5: Just another Thanos scene :/ 3 movies , 3 hints. Still no lengthily scene with Thanos in it. I was hoping for a end credit sequence with Phil or spiderman , was that was a bit of let down to.
But to sum up , the film does have its good side. It wasn't a complete let down it had parts where i was laughing out loud and also had parts where the action sequences where pretty epic , it deserves no less than a 7 because a lot of work has gone into the movie to make it work and it does work , but it could of worked a lot better :/.
Mike & Molly: No Kay Morale (2015)
I'm sorry but this show is fantastic and this episode show's just how funny it is!
Like most shows it has its flaws , but how can anyone sit there and tell me this show isn't funny! Its absolutely Hilarious. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but its like this show has a bad rating by trolls who just come to here to crap on the fact they are both overweight! Get a grip and take a long hard look in the mirror before you judge people , because this show is the best thing since friends aired!
Now lets talk about this awesome episode , Kay (Kathy bates) is having a bit of a mid life crisis due the events she witnessed over the years and molly being her bubbly self decided to help her get back on the train to adventure , you really do have to respect how well written the emotional scenes are in this episode and for it to go from something as intense as a little girl being killed in her own village , to delivering a baby , it sends such a important message. Life always finds a way. And where there is death new life will be born.
It was a very touching episode and a extremely funny episode i was laughing so hard i found it difficult to breathe. Mike had his own issues with a breast feeding rally , and some of the one liner jokes where just fantastic , Original writing at its best i have seen so many different sitcoms over the years and i can't think of a single one to compare this to in terms of jokes being copied they all fresh.
So i'm only going to say this once! Go home trolls and stop giving this amazing show 1 star! If you don't like it you don't like it , you don't need to come on here and moan about it other people , just stop watching it!
The Cobbler (2014)
Weird and Unsatisfying
It just didn't make any sense. As soon as the plot gets going it stops and comes to a halt , the character development never happened and it was extremely poorly written. More than likely one of Sandlers worst films , heres a prime example of what i mean..
1: He finishes saving the old man , women asks him on a real date and we don't see the date? W t f , we see this sad lonely man just buried his mum and we don't get to see him be happy..
2: His dad.. Everyone new the barber next door was his dad , and he actually had no real reason not to tell him about his presence because so much time had passed , it was completely pointless.
3: The shoes , Why didn't we see him impersonate more people , the characters he picked sucked!
The whole film falls flat , its not ideal to make a awesome premise like this and destroy it by not taking full advantage of its capability's.
Another thing that always grinds my gears , towards the end of the film when they both get in the car i thought we where about to find out more about his long lost dad... But the dam credits rolled down the screen! That is enough to merit a 1 rating... But i did enjoy some parts of the film so i don't want to be to harsh.
Sub-par film , that could of been so much more.
Iron Man Three (2013)
This isn't Iron man , Its SOILD CRAP
Truly one of the biggest let downs of the year. I went to see ironman fight a bunch of bad guys , not get depression and anxiety attacks over the events that took place in The avengers film. Where all human granted , but Tony Stark is on a higher level than the rest of us. His super Intelligence really does contradict his emotions in this film. The level of action in it is so poor , i mean i timed it at 31 minutes worth of decent action and even then that wasn't to a high standard.
Why is it every film i choose to see in 3D ends up being a massive let down! I hate having that feeling in the back of my head craving a reboot already , because its absurd to think this brilliant film franchise would need one. But the 3rd installment was just complete pants , it made no sense and it just baffled me how a script like this was allowed to be acted out and put onto the big screen without a second thought for the Junkies who crave to see the creations of Tony Starks work. Its exactly like seeing the new bond films remove all the gadgets and trying to turn the franchise into something its not. MATURE!
I hope the Thor sequel prevails because this crap has really upset me.
24 pounds 42 pence for 2 adult tickets!
Refund please MR stark i know your good for it!
In the Flesh (2013)
Simply and purely amazing!
In the flesh was simply amazing from start to finish i was caught up in whirls of emotion , from disgust to empathy. Set after a outbreak for the dead rising from the graves the government has invented a vaccine that is injected directly into the back of the neck to stop the rotters from turning back into savage beasts they once where. All the undead are kept in a special army /nhs ran hospital to treat them for the illness. The government is someday hoping for them to return back to normal life by sending them back to their families.
However there is a horde of civilians that aren't to happy about the idea of co-existing with the once mindless zombies that ate human brains. Armed with some of the latest weapons they set out to stop them coming back into civilian life.
The plot is simply sublime never in my life of watching horrors would i of though about a event that could happen after a invasion of zombies. It was always just a massacrer and ended badly. But somehow the writers of this show have thought up something so unique its stunned and shocked me to my very core.
If your a fan of zombie films , and great British acting. Please watch this 3 part show! I cant credit the writers enough for bringing a new age of zombie shows on us.
Over-Hyped Trash Biggest Regret of 2012 turns out to be Biggest win
I was so so so upset when i called round all my local cinemas to book this only to find the only seats available where at the front point blank in front of the screen. Me and my wife just left it and waited for a DVD release.
How good was it that we waited! What the hell is with all these directors trying to make a franchise into something its not! As sophisticated as bond is its certainly not bond without its romantic clichés and exploding pens. The whole film entirely pure dialogue and yeah i love dialogue but not 143 minutes of it! Its the end of a era and the end of my bond childhood ever being revisited on the big screen again. Bond is no longer bond , a lot of people argue these bond movies are the closet copy to Ian Flemings book and i have to agree they are. But if we have been brought up with Jetpacks , Exploding pens , plastic explosive tooth paste , villains with jaws made out of pure steel , and fantastic looking women why on earth would someone want to change that!
I really do hate the fact someone has taken my childhood hero and turned him into something hes not.
All I've ever asked from the franchise is the following!
1: Kick ass starting scene (Casino royal delivered in that aspect)
2: Gadgets , How can we not have Gadgets? So is bond to good for his gadgets now? Its pure bs! No one reading this cant deny when you saw those gadgets you got goosebumps and couldn't wait for bond to use them!
3: Attractive women , Beauty is in the eye of the beholder , i be holding nothing for the last 3 films.
4: The car! Same with the gadgets , we need to be introduced to a new car every film.. Whats the bloody point of the franchise without the cars with gadgets? Im actually get annoyed just writing all this.
It seems to be what i like to call , the Nolan era of films! Everyone's talking and no one shooting.
RIP BOND. You may as well of taken the plunge into a dark abyss with M.
Glad to see it going back its roots
Now i have to say over the last few years the big bang theory has taken a turn for the worst , with them all moving on with girlfriends/getting married and so forth , but it was nice to see Howard and Raj team up again to find out what it is Sheldon is doing during his unscheduled time during his day. Needless to say the episode was fantastic some might say the funniest episode since season 3 , me and my girlfriend where in fits of laughter and if your a fan of the older seasons it might be refreshing to note the writers are heading back in the direction we all loved from the previous seasons.
I wont bother including spoilers for the episode , it was very funny well thought out and the best episode of the season!
House M.D.: Everybody Dies (2012)
8 years in and we get this filth?
This entire episode is without a doubt the worst episode of house I've ever seen , and no im not bitter because its ended and im actually glad it has its gone the way of the dodo season 8 as a whole was boring we barely saw any of the typical house we saw in the past seasons , a lot of the case's where boring and dull , heres a example?
Young teenage girl has a tick inside her vagina and house actually removes it in public?
And we get...
A guy who cant say no to anybody
Seriously all the cases sucked beyond belief , this episode as a whole was just stupid and very very predicable , just as a tear was about to shed from my eye at houses funeral i just knew he wasn't dead and i knew he had faked his death. I really don't have anything to say about the episode in general it was just poorly written and a 45 minutes of boredom.
This Howard storyline has ruined this season , the characters at his best when hes trying to chat up women the whole concept of him getting married isn't even remotely funny or entertaining , and its not just his storyline the storyline with lenoard and penny needs to freaking stop i want her character written out of the show this arc is without a doubt the worst thing about the show its ruining what could be the best comedy show of all time.
Sheldon's storyline is the same just funnier because lets face it , its Sheldon. But still boring.
The last 2 episodes have been diabolical , and i used to love this freaking show hell I've gone back to season 1 just to forget about this BS season the worst thing about all of this though is howards nasa project , STOP DRAGGING IT GET HIM INTO SPACE GET HIM MARRIED and be done with it!
I miss Raj :( We are barely seeing him , hes so funny but the writers aren't giving him enough limelight.
