A lot of people have been recommending this show to me so I started watching it on Netflix a couple months ago, and I finally finished season 5. I liked it, but after Season 4 it started to get a bit dull imo. Still a great show though with hilarious jokes, I give it a 4/5
Pokémon The First Movie 8/10
Still full of so many memories and nostalgia. But I'll admit, it is cheesy at points, and the 'Who's That Pokémon' mistake Team Rocket makes bugs me to this day. But it is still an amazing film.
You know how little thought went into this film, when they can't even get such simple facts like that Russia is not a member of the European Union correct. It's a generic shooty-shooty film which doesn't really doesn't do any justice to 47 as a silent assassin. Still, if I can ignore that, it's not the worst action film I've seen.
Starring Bradley Cooper, centers around a loser writer called Eddie Morra who is a few weeks behind on his novel. He takes something called the NZT which gives him increased neural activity allowing him to access 100% of his brain. The normal human brain is capable of just 20%, Eddie has access to probably 5% of his brain as he isn't very clever and knows little. The NZT gives him access to 100% allowing him to write a full fledged novel in just 4 days, remember things he'd briefly seen before and had stored away in the 80% of the brain he couldn't access before.
NZT gives him the ability to become a millionaire within weeks. A single tablet a day soon transitions to 2 tablets a day. However, by the 50 minute mark (note that the movie is 1hr45mins in length) he begins losing stabilization, hallucinating that he's missing certain moments, gets caught up in a murder investigation and seeks a lawyer, the best in the city, to help him.
Turns out this lawyer is also working for another, a businessman who also takes NZT but is like Morra, losing his focus and life. It causes headaches, hallucinations, time-skipping and makes everyone who takes it walk with a limp. Muscle deterioration so to speak.
Anyway, it is pretty cool. Quite cryptic at the end as it seems as though Morra is now a congressman who is on a new version of NZT which gifts him with precognition (abilities to see the future), he predicts a truck with plow into a taxi and it does.
It's a good movie, but has plenty of flaws and unexplained moments.
Movie 2 of 3:
Hall Pass - 6/10
Not much to say about this one, just a romantic comedy movie.
Don't be Afraid of the Dark - 5/10
Mediocre horror (well, not actual horror) movie about a mother and daughter who move into a house which typically (in every single Horror movie this happens) something already lives there. No it's no Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers, but it's a bunch of little creatures that only come out at night. Makes no sense, but it's one of those movies you can laugh at even though you're supposed to be scared of it.
To be honest, horror movies these days are so cliche. What happened to "Villain actually wins"? I'm so sick and tired of horror movies with pathetic jump scares. Oh, close the fridge THERE'S SOMEONE THERE WITH A KNIFE. Hide in this cupboard, NOPE, HE'S IN HERE TOO. Oh wait, look at that old abandoned planked up house over there, let's go and have a look, CRAP THERE'S A KILLER IN HERE. I'll just slowly back away from the open door, KILLER GRABS ME FROM BEHIND. Oh, let's move into a nice looking victorian house, OH WAIT, A FEW PEOPLE WERE MURDERED HERE AND NOW THEY WANT ME TO HELP THEM KILL THE GHOST!
It's cliche, boring, doesn't add anything to the overall appeal of horror movies and put frankly they're all the same. A few jump scares, some gore, maybe some blood and that's your lot.
I also saw Bride of Chucky, but only got halfway through it as I fell asleep.
Signatures are lame.
Hence why I don't have one.
Because I'm awesome.
Based on a book, which I never knew existed. Watched it this morning at 4am, pretty good action film with decent character development and fantastic action sequences including a dune buggy vs a garbage truck sequence which I thought was great. My favourite character in the movie has to be Homer, some of the stuff he does is freaking hilarious. Such as trying to out-do Lee by getting down from rocks quickly and he slips on a vine and spills into the trees.
It's a good movie... up to the end. I won't spoil it, but I felt that the ending was a bit rushed. There's a fantastic sequence, then suddenly it goes into one of those "it will continue" sequences. I didn't like the ending, but then I didn't realise that the movie was based on a series of 7 books. SEVEN BOOKS! What is this, Harry Potter and the War for Australia? Why in God's name did the writer need to convey the story in 7 books? Surely a trilogy would suffice.
Then again, I can't really talk. I am writing a book series too, though I won't go into overkill with it.
6.5/10 - Would've been an 8 if the ending was better.
Signatures are lame.

Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 1-4 - 9/10
What an awesome series. Love everything about it. I can't wait til the fifth and final series. J. Edgar - 6/10
I was a little confused with certain aspects, because I may be a bit young to understand, but the story was well told and the acting was good. I was a bit creeped out by a few things (won't spoil anything) and I found it a bit boring at times.
Also watched Unchar- oh wait, sorry, that's not a movie. :P
If you watched the trailers and thought the movie looked stupid (like my friend did), you'll be pleasantly surprised it's not. The movie opens with two guys in an office talking about nothing important and then within about ten minutes they move on to the main characters. Then then go to the cabin and some zombies attack..... Weird yet? Well it gets INSANELY more weird. But absolutely a great movie! Towards the end I actually got a little uneasy and unsettled. So to me, that makes it a effect horror movie because I don't get scared easy at all.
+Scary, and I mean SCARY. There are plenty of jumps and shocks, plus a very clever mix of visual and audio techniques to incite fear.
+Oppressive and dark, don't let the fact that Harry Potter is in this get in the way of the dark heart of this film.
+Clever camera angles and directing.
+SPOILERS-The ending is very clever, the fact that it doesn't really have a happy ending means that the dark theme never waivers
-Minor plot holes (which I wont spoil here)
-A little short. The time really does fly when you watch this.
90% A great horror movie, and one I wouldn't mind watching again.
The Avengers: An IMAX 3D Experience – 10/10 It's official, this is my new favorite movie of all time. Simply brilliant, from the action to the comedy and suspense, it's a real thrill ride all along the way. It's a hard thing to get all these different kinds of heroes in one movie together, but Joss Whedon nailed it. I recommend this movie to everyone, an awesome experience!
Btw for the people that keep trying to compare The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises (for what you can of TDKR so far anyway) you can't. They're 2 entirely different takes on the genre. The Dark Knight Rises takes more of the realistic and gritty route, whilst The Avengers feels like a living comic book, 2 entirely different types of movies, superhero adaptions or not.
This movie was as perfect as a Super Hero movie is going to get. It has the best components from all of the Marvel films and rolls it into one. Great action all the way through without it feeling boring. There is enough to keep you excited but not so much it gets dull (TAKE NOTES MICHAEL BAY). The acting is solid and seeing all the hero's chemistry is awesome. Also I felt the 3-D added quite abit of depth in places. Also read above for my opinion of TDKR as I was going to say the same as SS.
I would give it 10/10, but I simply can't. I mean, i really loved the filme, all the action with my favorite superheroes from the comics, and the whole plot was brilliantly made! The views of every cast of this filme was also well made, fitting with the drama and everything. The city battle scenes are epic as hell! But I don't know, maybe it's from my part and not of the film, since I can't find pratically nothing bad in it. Maybe I should watch the other movies (Thor, Captain, Hulk 2, Iron Man 2) that I didn't to go deeply in this Marvel's "comic movie series"
