Must've been before the events of Pacific Rim...
In my head I was CONSTANTLY thinking of Jaegers and Kaijus from Pacific Rim... Cmon, where's Gypsy Danger at? BLOW THIS .... UP
To anyone who at least knows the previous Godzilla, it was just that one berserk lizard roaming around, and the government has to killer her, similar to Cloverfield, without the amateur recording with a shoe. Godzilla is more than just "blowing up a rampant, giant monster", but I will not explain why that is, as that would ruin your excitement firsthand if not already spoiled. There is a small plot twist that makes the movie more clear for people trying to understand what has happened.
This movie actually has a main character, who is a Lieutenant... He doesn't have a giant megazord or robot to battle Godzilla, he doesn't heat-ray vision or super-strength. His father has just studied Godzilla and any related events after her first appearance, and that is the only reason why this soldier is important. Otherwise, he is just any other soldier who must survive to get back to his family. Then again, I don't really know how well you can focus on an average person with a plot like this if he isn't really important to begin after the story unravels anyway.
If you're into giant monsters and Michael Bay Bewms, then watch this modern version of Godzilla
The Sandlot 2 (2005)
Eh, just Eh....
I watched the original Sandlot on ABC family for the first time, and I loved it. Reminded me of the little rascals and potty-mouth 5th grade Rugrats. This one, waaaaaay to identical to the first sandlot. Some similarities are fine, but I mean you could write a five page essay on the SAME features of story. The rival team, the scary dog, the new and better sneakers, "Smalls", the planned kiss, the carnival, the fat catcher, the retrieval plans, the hot day and pool time, etc.... I prefer sequels to movies that are either a continuation of the prev story with many of the same characters, or a prelude to the original story. If a reboot/remake is made, it better be muuuuuuuuuuuch better.
However, I do like that this version is a bit more diverse. It's different that this time 3 girls are added into the Sandlot mix, even if they don't focus on the baseball aspect of this movie that much. Bringing a deaf kid certainly is different, though it doesn't add much. Where David says he has to retrieve the ... from the beast, it reveals back story as to why he actually has to do it, something I don't recall the first movie doing.
Otherwise this movie gets a quarter of a thumb up....
Pacific Rim (2013)
MUCH better than Power Rangers and Transformers
How many of you remember, "WE NEED DINOSAUR POWER NOW"? Ah, that and the recent Transformer movies. Rather than just A lot of explosions and teenagers running like chicken ......, you get more of the idea that these are manmade military megazords.
First, I think I can speak for most people when I say that the fight scenes are "booking dot" great. The amount of detail in the movements and in the scenery is a sight to see. I mean honestly, there isn't a clear use of military guns and tanks that we've all seen before; its all replaced with giant robot fighting that is pretty much new to us.
The story? Like all in your face, big bang movies, I do feel it is a little lacking. But...I didn't really need much of a story because I was so glued to the screen.
The idea of the whole movie is where I must applaud. Parts of this movie are so well thought out and original its not seen very often. The idea of using 2 pilots to command a robot, now that I think isn't that original...But the idea of neurology, the design of the whole movie, using weaponry different than some grenades and just some bullets....and the way everything looks in the end.
I can say that this is going to be a movie I will be eagerly looking for online and on HBO, as this is literally the best giant robot, giant monster, military, fighting movie EVER MADE
Power Rangers Samurai (2011)
Not as good as I remember
I grew up with power rangers. Halloween, the MMPR switch helmet to head action figures, the DVD's. After Jetix was canceled, I didn't often watch power rangers unless someone posted a season online. For me Power Rangers was good until Overdrive, with the team-up as an exception. I've seen a good portion of the whole MMPR saga, so I can understand why there are so many similarities to the original.
Since this was going to be the first time on Nick, and the first power rangers show in a while, many things were kept same. At first I hated it so much, until I thought to lay off a bit. The theme; another rock based song with much guitar and GO-GO POWER RANGERS. While A LOT of people find this a cop out, its supposed to bring back to the good ol' days. Of course, BULK AND SKULL's nephew or something like that ARE BACK. But by now, Bulk should be in his 30's, 40's. I kind of liked when the two numbskulls were always playing Sherlock finding out who the rangers were in High School. He's not an idiot anymore, and he is not fighting the minions like in Zeo and in Space... He's changed, but still has some features of the original.
Now the show on its own...I do like that the actors themselves do have a bit more screen time to create more of a plot for the episode. I'll be honest it isn't that bad for some. Pinkie sounds like she's being like that red head from that Victorious show at times when she's unmorphed, like she's trying to create that voice. Yellow Ranger completely sounds fake. Sounds like she's trying even more than the pink ranger to have a fake voice and sound like an idiot. The red ranger is whom I have the biggest problem with. He just sounds so boring and monotone. Kind of like Vypra from Lightspeed, there is no energy in either of their voices. There it is, my attack, nuff said.
The effects are much worse than that of power rangers Ninja Storm and Time Force when they could run at fast speeds and animate monster attacks. It just looks ridiculous now as there seems to be more animation for the attacks as they get blown away real quickly.
The zords, look stupid. but somewhat make sense. Half resembles the appropriate animal, half resembles their symbol. Since these rangers' theme are Samurai and since Samurai are from Japan and since the rangers do emphasize the use of "symbol power", Japanese Characters, Why not have their symbols on their zords and helmets?
While not being the same as what I remember from being a kid, there are some good that has been done, some. Can't say I'd want to watch the who season online, but did feel like running onto ceilings as if I was 7 years old again. I'd rather stick with earlier works.
Lightspeed, Timeforce, and Ninjastorm FTW
Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005)
If you think you are going to get a lot of explosions like in some kind of Michael Bay movie then you are wrong. Nobody goes Rambo either. While the summary of the movie might not sound that great, the movie gets better. It is similar to the life of a regular couple, but just much more...engaging. They have a nice dinner with wine and bread (Coinsidence?), while being more than careless with the knives. They eat breakfast, but with shattered glasses and whatever wasn't destroyed from gunfire. They have their fair share of fights, that just involves guns and more knives and fists and nut-shots.
I'm one who likes a good fire fight and fancy smancy words that "Secret...Agent Man" uses, but I honestly watch this movie to watch the movie because of humor. At times they do act lovingly to each other, when one isn't trying to shoot the other. You can just feel the fun that these two are having. And then there are some scenes with vince Vaughn that do create a smile.
Would recommend if in need of a decent laugh.
The Naked Brothers Band (2007)
To start: Who the hell are these kids again?
Never saw the premier, only happened to see this show once because nothing else was on.
A couple of kids playing instruments have their own show...Nothing sounds interesting. The one episode I saw there was a relationship between two of the cast members. Can someone PLEASE explain a few kids who have no talent and nothing special have their own show? It seemed to be a mix of kardashian crap and a music video. Listened to one of this band's songs online, was nothing special as nothing was anything worth mentioning
Can't go into detail about the show cuz I've never cared to fully watch an episode, but am just glad its over.
Catch 21 (2008)
Carlton? After all these years in the closet?
I do like game shows to a certain extent when it involves trivia. Swearing a bunch in Jeopardy, guessing on Millionaire, but I don't like game shows that involve luck and risk. At that point it isn't about how smart you are anymore, but how much you're willing to gamble.
This show seemed entertaining at first, although after watching did seem pretty slow watching a chick flip cards and figuring out what 17+5 equals... This was a VERY original concept from word associations and hardcore trivia, but the idea dies out after a while.
Now for the reason most of us are here.......... I had just started to watch The Fresh Prince starting from ep 1 tonight, already on ep 8. It's good to see the little dark guy got some screen time in something I've watched after Prince. Funny and somewhat queer, Carlton grew on me. Didn't exactly bring all the humor over from the 90's but gave the show some time to last a week
Sanjay and Craig (2013)
Different than other shows?
I've been in the mood to watch a new cartoon show for a while. Neutron only had 3 or 4 seasons and Fairly Odd Parents portrayed characters and scenes that were funny, but overall too stupid. I watched Adventure time for a while, but lost interest as there wasn't as much humor as the childish child-shows.
I can't exactly say that this show is the funniest out there either, but that is probably because it is a cartoon that does try to be somewhat more realistic. Instead of having a piano smash on someone's head or having a person's body split in half, the most that happens to them is a punch or a kick, which does make sense if they appear completely fine in the next few frames.
One thing that I do have trouble understanding: DO PEOPLE KNOW THE SNAKE TALKS??? Its obvious the little Middle Eastern-Whitey can understand the snake, but then the blonde girl can understand him too. But the father acts like he doesn't even know that the snake can speak English. In future episodes, it is shown wearing a cap and a shirt, BUT YET ONLY ONE PERSON ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE HAS NO ARMS? Is it everyday in this town that people see a green kid with a tail, no arms or legs, and a really long neck? Aside from that though the show is good for an older age group that is not into Bleach, Barney, or Adult Videos
Pleasure Spa (2013)
I'm tired of the movies with the SAME cast
I'm not that fond of Pnos with very, very sunukar cast members from like 8 other movies. Christine Nguyen, Voodoo, Nicole Sheridan, Beverly Lynn, Evan Stone, Syren. There was a time around 2005 when these same people would appear in every stupid themed movie over and over again. Ghost movies, movies involving space and aliens, movies where people have sex in unusual places.
Now, we have a new set of familiar faces. Brandin Rackley, Frankie Cullen, Heather Vandeven, Rebecca Love, (apparently) Cindy Lucas, Jayden Cole, bug-eyed Melissa Jacobs. If you have a favorite among these stars than it is OK, but it gets boresome to watch the same cast because you know what they look like during...There are the stupid 'themed' movies, and then there are the realistic movies that are more dramatic and could pass for a regular movie if didn't involve intercourse, but a very crappy movie. Along with the recycled actors and actresses comes the recycled songs that are used, P.. P.. Bang Bang, I want your love, some sax music, other.
I myself HATE Cindy Lucas because of how old she looks and people still get turned on for the beach balls she has implanted on her chest. Then there is Melissa Jacobs whom I refer to as Bug Eyes. The first movie I saw of her, Dark Fantasies, she actually looked attractive. Now that I can clearly see her face, DAYUM HER EYES ARE HUGE.
The only thing I do like about the movie is Raven Alexis. She is a fresh face and very attractive. I won't go into details about what she's like cause you can look that up by yourself. You're better off spending the time watching your favorite star on P...hub
Furious 6 (2013)
Not as bad as you people think.
I almost laugh at commenters who give this movie 1 Star. One person referred to people as "morons", one said that having a seemingly dead character dead wasn't original, and another didn't even see 3,4,5. Went to go see the movie last night and it seemed to be much better than 5 in my opinion.
Similar to Fast 5, The Team(Diesel, Walker, Luda, Gibson, Kang, Gadot, and Rock) is back, excluding the other two guys. While amnesia is not the most clever and original idea out there, it is not something seen in most films and gives writers a reason for Diesel to take the job. If it were any other criminal, Diesel would probably refuse. The amount of destruction, the customized drag racing cars, the fights, it just goes to show how much The Fast series has evolved.
Fast 5 did have the rest of the cast helping out in the mission, but it was just some small stuff. Undercover work, opening safe, helping during the chase. Really, the everyone else wasn't that significant to the mission. This time, EVERYONE has a major part in this. You have Gadot with gun, Kang and Gibson get their ***es whooped and help more during the tank chase, Rocky is seen beside Diesel, and then there's Ludicrous standing on the sidelines. The members of the team seem more important this time around.
What some people do complain about, and I understand, is that this movie is less about Fast Driving and more about fighting. I get it; its easy to feel this way. While very slightly sad about that, 6 seems to have much more comedy and humoric jokes. They might mostly revolve around Tyrese Gibson, but nonetheless the jokes are still funny. Taking snacks out of the vending machine, foul mouth during the tank scene, the grappling hook, BIG FOREHEAD. So while less about the fast street racing like in the original, it has added a few more jokes and fighting which isn't that much worse.
What does impress me most is the progression of the Fast Movies. First the main ant was an Asian gang with Uzi's and motorcycles. 2 was a white guy with 2 Spanish henchmen, 3 was a Japanese teenager, 4 was(I actually never fully saw 4. lol), 5 was a corrupt Spanish police force, and this time involved guys from the same breed. As mentioned, these are not cops, these are the best criminals in Europe; they are fast and deadly. They have their own set of custom cars that are faster to begin with and have ramps on their hood. They have advanced and modified weapons like the chips. Last importantly, "They Got a Tank". The series went from something as small and minor as guys on motorcycles to extreme drivers with a tank and drag cars.
I do honestly enjoy this movie much more than 5, though watching this in a theater did hurt my eyes from all of the explosions and bright lights. The engagement of supporting characters is a good feature for the first time also, along with the twist near end. Can't wait until this comes out on DVD
