Only God Forgives (2013)
5.9 is the Perfect rating
The cinematography and music was fantastic. As well as the make-up and costumes, for some reason they stood out for me. But there wasn't much of a story, and if there was it wasn't very clear. The little dialogue this had wasn't all that great. This movie (like Drive) had style, even people who hated this movie would agree on that.
It seemed the director thought he could make a point using very little dialogue and as much violence as possible, to make the audience feel sophisticated and intelligent if they appreciated it. He just wanted to make a fancy artistic movie that'll be remembered for years, that audiences can or can't 'understand'.
To be honest I liked Drive, and I loved Bronson.
Iron Man Three (2013)
Glad it's over (spoiler)
Fear not, I'm not hear to complain, just give my opinion.
First of all, I think the Avengers was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! It deserved all the attention it got. The special effects as well as the dialogue and how they introduced each character to one another was exactly how you'd expect. Everything was perfect! and Iron Man 1 was the next best thing. Iron Man 2 and 3 were good, to be honest. I don't think they can make the Iron Man movies any better, so it was a decent time to end them.
At the end of Iron Man 3 before the end credits, was a montage of the 3 movies. After watching this I began to realise how iconic the movies actually were, and how fantastic and iconic the characters were. It seemed to take the James Bond route in terms of popularity and familiarity, It was the James Bond of this generation, If you know what I'm saying, (maybe after seeing this montage you could understand me better). Same how they say the Avengers is the Star Wars of this generation I guess. (even though I think the Avengers is far better)
Obviously I hope Thor 2 and Captain America 2 will be fantastic, but it's Avengers 2 that has the full reputation, this matters far more than the other movies, as I'm sure we all know. And even if there are no more Iron Man movies, the character Tony Stark will still be around, and I'm fine with that. At this point I think it's safe to say the characters are more important then the movies. Because Avengers 2 is such a big deal and has to be perfect.
What I didn't like about Iron Man 3: -The Mandarin (don't think I need to explain this) -Everyone was wearing the suit, I thought that was annoying, as well as the remote controlled suits. It seems like they don't even need Tony Stark anymore, just his suits. I think the other characters wore them for longer than him. -No references to the Avengers 2, maybe because it's so early, the scene after the credits wasn't worth waiting for anyhow.
What i did like -The End Credit sequence -The 'fire people', seemed like x-men characters, It made the movie seem more,,,,MARVELy. It worked well -The scenes were he fought without the suit. these were important, they showed us he didn't need the suit to be a hero. I also love the portable hand beam device he had
Anyway, to conclude, whether this movie was brilliant or terrible, it would have no effect on the Avengers 2. I think it was pretty good!
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
I Preferred the Remake
That's right, I was kind of disappointed when I saw the original. I know everyone will disagree with me on this. I just found the characters in the original really stupid, and I know they were suppose to be in a way, and I know the characters in the remake weren't much smarter. But here's why I prefer the remake.
First of all, today's remakes are more polished and cleaner, meaning better effects, technology etc. But of course that doesn't make a good movie, but let's face it, it is a great improvement. For some reason people don't want improvements, they want things to stay exactly the same when it comes to cgi, any kind of visual effects and quality.
Even though the original Freddy Kruger had more personality in the original, I still prefer the new one. The old one joked around too much and took ages killing his victims, and to some that was good, it meant more tension is built up. But I think he's scarier serious like the new one, who didn't joke around. And in fairness Jackie Earle Hayley was perfect for the part of Freddy. Just by looking at his previous roles (like Rorschach) that's easy to see. I also preferred that the new one is a pedophile. It seemed more realistic that a school janitor is a pedophile, then a crazy guy who hurts kids like the original.
I also thought it was very clever how they introduced the song 'All I Have To Do Is Dream' into the movie
What a great idea for a movie!
That's such a cool idea for a movie. A real-life point of view of what super heroes would be like if they existed. And making the superhero a comic book nerd, just makes it seem more real. It's funny too, it would have to be. because the general idea of the movie is very quirky. And what a perfect part for Nicholas Cage, especially in the scene where he fires rounds at his daughter! i don't normally like him, but in this movie he suits the part so well. Because apparently he's great in action movies, but i always thought he was a bit too nutty for action movies, but the part he played in kick ass, involved both action and quirkiness, which Nic Cage mastered!
Very Unoriginal (spoiler)
you've probably heard this many times, it's just basically Pocahontas's or fern gully, what makes avatar different to those movies. We've seen this story so many times, just because it's in 3d and has amazing special effects really doesn't make it a good movie. There are some parts to it i do like (the fact that the guy in the wheel chair can finally walk around in an avatar body, and be free for the first time in his life). the first time you watch it,at some parts you can pretty much guess correctly, what's gonna happen. But honestly, i actually would've preferred avatar to win best picture instead of the hurt locker, and if not avatar, inglorious bastards instead
