Movie Review: Mulan (1998)So,after purchasing the Mulan/Mulan II Blu-Ray box set, I decided to rewatch this
Disney classic that I haven't watched for quite some time. The film was a pretty
damn good experience. The visuals were absolutely stunning and the musical
numbers were some of the best. I'll be humming "Make A Man Out of You" for
quite a while.
But, the part that I enjoy the most of this movie was the main characters. The
main heroine was pretty badass, but at the same time, knew what her priorities
are and knew what she was doing. Plus, there was also her sidequest of trying to
find who she and how she fit in society.
Anyway, the film was awesome and and will definately be viewed in the future
Movie Review: Space Jam (1996)Another movie, another short review to make on this site. For something
different, I decided to review something from the past. Something that
everyone from my generation would remember with either fondness or spite.
Of course, I'm talking about the 1996 live action/animation hybrid Space
I for one haven't seen it for the first time until I saw it on Cartoon
Network back on February 2011. Sure, I saw a few scenes back when I was
a small child in the late 90's, but that doesn't count as a full viewing.
Now for the actual review, the movie is basically the Looney Tunes being
challenged into a basketball game by these aliens that want to capture them
and put them in a sideshow attraction on a theme park on a alien planet. And
the Looney Tunes requesting Michael Jordan to help them win the game.
Sounds pretty explicit for a movie that's pretty a giant advertisement for
Air Jordans and Warner Brothers. (LOL) But seriously, the film was pretty
fun despite its numerous flaws. I guess I e
Movie Review: Wreck It Ralph (2012)Okay, so I've watched the latest animated offering from the animated
Disney canon yesterday, Wreck It Ralph. The film was just as good as
when I saw it for the first time at theaters back in November. It is
was basically one of the best films of last year.
The movie was excellent with funny moments, heart, and pretty memorizing
visuals. The one problem that I had with it was it spent too much time in
the Sugar Rush world when it could be spent in other game environments.
Sure,the atmosphere of SR was pretty breathtaking, but I kind of want Ralph to
interact with other famous gaming icons, like the Red Team from Team Fortress
2. Wouldn't that be an hilarious moment with him interacting with The Heavy!?
But, the already established characters are pretty good, both original and licensed
characters. I'm pretty satisfied how they got both Sega and Nintendo to collaborate
together. Kind of like WB and Disney back in the 80's when they worked together
to make Who Framed Roger Rabbit!
To sum i
Movie Review: G.I. Joe Rise of Cobra (2009)So, I finally decided to watch G.I. Joe The Rise of Cobra on DVD last night
with knowing that it wouldn't be good. I was right, the movie was completely
lacking of any substance or cleverness. It was literally like watching a 10-year
old boy playing with his Cobra and G.I. Joe toys in the sandbox, but with a bigger
It kind of reminded me of Batman and Robin and its stupid toyetic, vapid, and
big-budgeted nature. Well, at least that movie had its charms with Arnold's "witty"
ancedotes. Which I can't say for the dialogue in this one because it was just plain
crap instead of being humorously bad.
For the one positive thing I can say for this is that the designs for the vehicles/sets
were pretty interesting to look at.(Despite having very poor security. ) Plus, Rachel
Weiss was pretty hot as Scarlett.
For my final verdict, don't plan on watching this one, unless you're a 10-year old boy
who loves mindless action. For everyone else, just watch the Robot Chicken G.I.Joe
Movie Review:It Is A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)Yesterday, I decided to start off this year of theatrical viewing with the
newest installment of the Die Hard franchise. Despite having a very striking
head-cold, I was still determined to watch this. So,I went inside the theater
and viewed the film regardless of my sickness.
I actually liked this movie despite of its numerous flaws. I guess I'm sucker
for dumb action movies. The thing is,that the original Die Hard trilogy was
never anything like those mindless action flicks that saturated the 80's. The
originals were grounded in reality and actually had a hero that is just an
average guy that was just at the wrong place, at the wrong time.
This movie has none of that. It was just shooting,explosions,and (lack of)
exposition. Granted,I still enjoy the ride, but I still expected more of
a plot. With Die Hard I expect some form of a compelling story with actual
characters worth a damn.
To sum this all up, I still enjoy this, but I consider it as a Die Hard movie.
Just like I don't consid
Movie Review:The Muppets (2011)Hi Ho!,CrappyMSPaintArt here. And I just want to
tell you about the latest movie I have viewed on
DVD. You see,I have just rode on a 10-hour car trip
across the Eastern U.S. yesterday.
And I needed to watch something to calm me down,so
I decided to watch a copy of the most recent Muppets
movie I got from the library. (I haven't gotten to
watch it all week and it had to be returned the next
As for the actual movie,it was pretty good. It was a
throwback to the old Muppets films we grew up on back
in the 70's and 80's. I have throughly enjoyed it all
and wouldn't mind a second watch.
The one thing that this film bugged me,however,is that
it implied that the Muppets didn't appear in anything
entertainment-related during their 30 year abstinence.
What about the movies,television specials,and commercials
they appeared throughout the years?(Are you telling me
the Muppet Babies dosen't exist in this movie's universe?!)
Anyway,I've enjoyed the movie and I hope to see it again.
