I’m Not Done with Suicide Squad

Posted in Reviews!, Videos! with tags , , , , , , on 08/10/2016 by McCutcheon

Though they should have been taking out despotic rulers guarded by super assassins, the #Sqwad spent their time accidentally meeting up with the Joker for a few minutes and going to the Enchantress light show. Maybe next time?

Suicide Squad was Cool. Maybe Too Cool

I think this was my longest video ever before I got to editing this beast. So many conflicting thoughts on what is and what shoulda been. Ultimately we got what everybody inferred from the original picture released; Garbage Pail Expendables.

The Neon Demon/Tickled/Star Trek Beyond

This video may as well have been titled “Me VS Technology” because I have had one stretched-out, horrible time trying to get this new computer and editing program to work for me.

Remember that line in Se7en when Morgan Freeman tells Brad Pitt, “If John Doe’s head splits open and a UFO should fly out, I want you to have expected it”? That’s the advice I give you if you watch The Neon Demon and Tickled. And Star Trek Beyond? Well, it was definitely Star Trek.

 

Harry Potter and the Guy Who Just Watched All the Movies

I spent a good 20 hours of my life watching all the Harry Potter movies and this is the opinion I have after watching them.

Warning! Spoilers ahead!

I don’t quite want to call this a review even though I’m putting it in the “Review” category. This is really more of a chance to talk about how awesome this game is. I only just got a Playstation a week or so ago and it was really more for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid game, but Batman tagged along and here I am a week later writing about this game I’m continually impressed by.

I’m partly writing because as a fan of comics, video games (generally) and things of high quality I feel the need to talk about this game. Because as Pastor Clever says- G’LAWD HAVE MERCY! Continue reading

You Need to Read Chrononauts

You’re familiar with writer Mark Millar’s work whether you know it or not. You might have read his comics- stints he’s had with Marvel (Civil War, Old Man Logan, The Ultimates) and DC (Superman: Red Son) or maybe stories with his own characters (Nemesis, Jupiter’s Legacy). Chances are, you’ve seen the Wanted, Kick-Ass, or Kingsman movies, all based on his comics.

But for all of his huge ideas, I haven’t really been a fan of Millar’s work…until now. Continue reading

Spoilers ahead!

Just going over the newest Marvel movie, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ Is it good as a comic book movie? Is it good as a REGULAR movie? Does it have an end credits scene? Yes to all.

Movie Review: The Lego Movie

Stars: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Will Arnett, Charlie Day, Alison Brie, Liam Neeson, Will Ferrell

Rated PG for mild action and rude humor, Running time 100 minutes, Action/Comedy

Compare to: Toy Story (1995) meets The Matrix (1999)

Of all the movies made to help sell toys, The Lego Movie is the closest one to combining what sells their product and making something you’ll still actually want to watch.

I imagine many thinking of this movie solely as the former, much like Transformers and the upcoming Ninja Turtles movies are bound to do, but The Lego Movie doesn’t pretend to be more than it is while also playing up to that role of ridiculous kids movie that adults will enjoy too.

The Top Five of 2012

After (woo hoo!) an entire of reviewing movies, this is what it comes down to; the best of the best, the most amazing, well scripted, melodramatic dramas that Hollywood has to offer… maybe not, but these are my most enjoyable and well made films of 2012. As far as I’m concerned, the second half of the year was much better than the first half, while the year all around just kicked the balls of 2011, despite the huge titles that came out.

I’m looking at you, Twilight and Hangover 2. Continue reading

Movie Review: Wreck-It Ralph

Posted in Reviews! with tags , , , , , on 11/02/2012 by McCutcheon

Stars: John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Alan Tudyk,

Rated PG for some rude humor and mild action/violence, Running time 108 minutes, Animation/Comedy

Compare to: Toy Story (1995), Up (2009)

Of all the arcade games I’ve ever played growing up, Rampage! was my favorite. You picked your giant monster, be it a lizard, a gorilla or a wolf. Then you would proceed to destroy as much of the city as you could before the military destroyed. Reversing this concept is the in-film video game of Fix-It Felix Jr., where the player’s goal is to fix the apartment building that a over-sized hobo is destroying it. It’s one of the many aspects of the movie that will have viewers reminiscing of their days at the arcade while the smooth animation and usual kid-friendly adult joke combine to create a movie that’s not only fun, but gives a message that is normally the exact opposite of what we’re usually given in movies, especially animation.

I’ll get to that in a second. Continue reading
