Batman Ninja (2018)
Nonsensical Eye Candy
The artwork and animation are of very high grade and gave a promise of a new and interesting take on Batman, maybe like Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, but the artwork was just a mere façade. A broken promise. The plot is nonsensical, dumb and is no Batman story. The voice acting was far from the greatest, and the idiotic mechs just sealed its fate for damnation. I came in with hope, even though the title in of itself is rather dull and simple. The artwork seemed great, and is great, the designs are interesting, but the story is unbearable. The writers and director obviously have no experience, nor any idea of who Batman is. They directed the movie almost like some Power Rangers movie. As said the animation and art is fantastical, but the script, plot and story does not compare in the slightest. It had promise with a new and interesting take on Batman, with an extremely good animation department, but it did not deliver (sadly). This could've been a blast.
Pool Party Massacre (2017)
Flawed, yet enjoyable
The writing and acting is far from perfect but fit this Indie Slasher flick. There's a ton of fun to be had with this movie, and is yet another great throwback to the great slasher era of the 80s. The most important part is the kills, which are creative, with the choose your weapon type ordeal after every kill. The stalking scenes are good, plot is easy to follow and does not drag out, and the twist at the end is interesting and well twisty. The characters are a bit shallow and well not very likable. Which I suspect is done by purpose so that we will of course joy at their demise and root for the final girl. Still they sometimes get rather nasty to each other, sometimes irritating and other times it's a bit fun. Lastly I want to state out that the camera work is competent with some rather artistic scenes here and there, for the most part with the blood scenes, creative camera work on the kills and some just plain decent to good shots. The movie isn't the worst Slasher out there, and if you're into Slasher's I would recommend giving it a watch. It's a rather fun watch, but it is not the best Indie movie out there. Still it has it's charm and enjoyability.
A predictable mess
Countdown contains some decent acting, decent photography, with a couple of good shots, and decent sound composition. What it lacks is a good script, a good plot, and it has unnecessary plot points, badly written characters, somewhat forced humor at times and their throat gagging way of trying to be political and "woke". First things first is the very unnecessary and forced romance between the main characters, which feels only included as a after thought. Secondly the humor feels forced in a couple of scenes, for instance in the church scene, it seems unnatural and cheap. Thirdly, the way they try to jam some political and "woke" messages feels too out of place and just plain bad. I don't find it in any sense reasonable to force political nonsense down your throat. Can a movie be political? Yes. But it should never try to force it. Lastly is all these weird subplots placed in last second, predictable story and of course the dumb random jump scares thrown in to fit today's strange fascination of thrown in jump scares and cheap spooks. The subplots are just bad like the sexual harassment plot, which do absolutely nothing mayor for the story in any way. The story is just uninteresting and easily predictable with no smart nor clever way of telling this story. This movie could have had potential, but is lost because of how badly these things were mixed. I feel if the director could have taken more time with the story, removed or changed these dumb subplots and unnecessary scenes, and went through the script a couple more times. All in all I must say it's a not the worst movie, but not close to the best.
A great deal of fun
An intriguing television experience with stellar performances, and interesting plots to be had fun with. It's not a world breaker for storytelling nor a dramatic masterpiece, but is it trying to be? No, but it gives a fun compelling story, with interesting well-acted characters and depth where it needs. The comedy might not be for everyone but hits where it needs to and hits well. The series dwells between serosity, comedy, and drama. But never crossing that line from comedy to drama, but rather entails and entertains the ideas of drama. The lead actor, Herman Flesing, might give out one of the finest acting from Norway's comedic scene. Showing a great deal of showmanship and variety by playing multiple different characters. Giving them all depth and intrigue, and the series a great deal of fun to be had. It's a worthwhile watch, with the episodes no more than 15 minutes long. With a fun script, interesting characters that keep the plot alive, and a cast giving it their all. What more is there to ask for in a comedy series.
Uncut Gems (2019)
Uncut gems is the Sandler movies we need
Adam Sandler is a great actor, with magnificent possibilities, but has lately been in quite the dose of low grade comedy movies. This movie is chaotic, yes. But isn't reality chaotic? Life isn't this perfect hero story with clear ups and downs and right and wrongs. This movie has life and shows how cruel life can be and shows the chaotic life of this hustler. The movie has one of the best acting 2019 had to offer, great cinematography, magnificent score and fine knitted cast with awesome chemistry. Story wise it does not break believability and keeps you hooked from the first 10 minutes. A utterly must watch, but I must say that even though it is a magnificent work, it's not for everybody. It is a loud movie, still it's worth every minute it takes to watch it and rewatch it. This is how you cast Adam Sandler.
Breaking Bad (2008)
As close as one can come to view perfection
Everything from the subtle details, to the unmatched writing and the perfect cast, to the very beautifully shot scenes. It may very well be the best Tv-show out there. The story, even with some creative liberties, is well grounded, believable and feels very real. The show, unlike others, ages like fine wine. The more you watch and the longer you sink in the better it gets. I can think of few series which grow stronger and better every season. It's not only worth sinking your teeth into, it's worth eating. Breaking Bad is a timeless piece and it will stand even long into the future, and will forever be one of the best Tv-shows to ever come out.
