Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)
Action-packed, exhilarating sequel, worthy of the original.
Anyone who "thoroughly enjoyed" the first Independence Day should check out ID4 Resurgence. The advancements in audio and visual special effects have improved so much over the last 20 years that the post-alien invasion world of 'Resurgence' truly appears the way it should in this film. I was impressed by even the simplest technological innovations like people's strong phone and internet connections between Earth and the Moon. The international moon base was also very well put together. I also enjoyed the returning cast of characters in this film that gave the story a sense of continuity that any good sequel needs to have.
Howard the Duck (1986)
An excellent movie if you're the right age!
I was 8-years-old when 'Howard the Duck' came out in theaters. To a child under 12 at that time, Howard the Duck was a fascinating, entertaining movie that captured a youngster's imagination. I wouldn't expect an adult in 1986 to have found the movie particularly captivating. I think that Howard the Duck is unfairly criticized because it was never intended to be a legendary movie like 'Star Wars' in spite of being a George Lucas film.
My friends and I liked the film and we still enjoy watching it to this day because it's nostalgic. It takes us back to the time of Garbage Pail Kids, and Howard the Duck closely resembles the G.P.K. character "Fowl Raoul."
G.I. Joe: The Invaders (1985)
Episode contains racist undertones
G.I. Joe: The Invaders (1-50) originally aired on November 29, 1985. This episode contained dialogue that was disturbingly racist even for 1985. In one scene Dusty declares "Me and the camel jockey got a lot in common. He likes the desert as much as I do!" A short time after that, Gung Ho exclaims, "There's nothing' I hate more than a Ruski!" While I understand that the U.S. was at odds with Soviet Russia and the during the Cold War, the term Ruski was always offensive and it is even more inappropriate in the 21st century. This cartoon needs to be edited. Free speech does not include 'fighting words' and fighting words are all the more reprehensible in a children's cartoon. Kids imitate what they hear. The adults who wrote the dialogue in this episode should know better than to write that garbage.
Spider-Man: Carnival of Crime (1981)
White basketballs in the opening scene
This episode begins in a peculiar fashion with a group of kids playing in an outdoor New York City basketball court. Every basketball was completely white which was not typical for 1981 or any year since then. Soon after the basketball court scene, Spider-man is accused via newspaper and radio of committing a series of robberies. The viewer knows that Spider-man could not be guilty. The roller coaster scene with Aunt May, Betty Brant, and Peter is also very entertaining. I thought the artwork for the roller-coaster and its track was very detailed. The posters featured at the carnival are also amusing for Marvel Comics fans.
All-Star Superman (2011)
Superman character is far too robotic in All-Star Superman
From the very beginning of the movie I could tell that this was a very different incarnation of any Superman I had ever seen. This Superman is extremely robotic. It seems like he has Asperger's Syndrome. His voice is very monotone and he totally lacks charisma. In addition he angers too quickly over very trivial matters. He even gets snippy with Lois and he also gets jealous when Lois ftalks to other other superheroes. This lack of confidence is so uncharacteristic of Superman.
This Superman is a brawny nerd and a jerk. He is also drawn very poorly. His body is too top heavy and his cape is way too short. The 's' on his chest is also drawn incorrectly. He does not look or act the way Superman should. I hope that the powers that be at DC Comics never bring back this version of Superman again. It seems like All-Star Superman was written by a warped individual who wanted audiences to see his distorted version of the man of steel. We all got enough of the 'bad Superman' in the movie Superman III. The last thing that Superman fans want to see is an odd-mannered, creepy, arrogant, pedantic Superman.
