The Wolverine (2013)
bruinjoe reviews The Wolverine
Hello, my name is bruinjoe, but my friends call me Joe (or Joseph), and today, I saw The Wolverine. The Wolverine is about Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) pays a visit to an old comrade in Japan, whom he saved, and finds himself in the midst of power struggle.
PROS: Cinematography, the look of Japan looks beautiful.
The action scenes were really well choreographed. I like the style of Japanese samurai fighting.
Once again, I like Hugh Jackman, he is always great as Wolverine.
Just the depth of the personal side of Wolverine, makes you feel like you are Wolverine. (because he is still haunted for killing the love of his life, Jean Gray, in X3
CONS: Slow pace, slow at the beginning, but picked up it's pace quickly
The third act. Way too jumbled and confusing, the twist made me say "what?!". The third act killed it from being a good movie for me.
Overall, it's no First Class, and it certainly no Avengers, but it's the Wolverine movie fans wanted.
Despicable Me 2 (2013)
Bruinjoe reviews Despicable Me 2
Hello, my name is bruinjoe, but my friends call me Joe (or Joseph), and I saw Despicable Me 2 today. Despicable Me 2 is about Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) is recruited by the Anti-villain league, where he teams up with his new partner (voiced by Kristen Wiig) to stop a super-powered villain.
PROS: Better than the first (due to its stronger plot) I like how it's played like a mystery-spy movie, gotta enjoy the ride
Funny just like the first
CONS: Way to PREDICTABLE Some hit-and-miss jokes (mostly due to some of them shown way to frequently on trailers and TV ads.
Overall: It is not better than Monsters University, but still enjoyable. Great fun for the whole family. I'm just glad this series isn't going bad to worst like the Ice Age series 7.8/10
