Oh man did I miss cons!!!! This was my 3rd Awesome Con and even though I only did one day this time unlike the other 2 where I went all 3 days it was still just as fun. So I decided to show my favorite parts of the con. Especially the awesome art by Amourable Art and the fucking bombass vest from Volante Design!
This movie was perfect! 10 out of 10!!! I mean how can it not be… its got Ryan Reynolds. But seriously this movie made every nerd/gamer part of me happy. Every part of it was great. The action sequences… great. The acting… great. Special effects… great. Comedic lines… super great. The unexpected celebrity and Youtuber cameos and easter eggs… super super amazingly great. And of course the entire plot/concept… Perfect.
You might think I’m going over the top but honestly I loved this movie. It was extremely fun to watch (especially since I could feel superior to my family since I knew who all the Youtuber cameos were and they didn’t). I literally can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like about this movie. This movie is without a doubt the best movie in theaters right now and hopefully is just what theaters need to get people to come back to the movies. So, once again this movie was a 10 out of 10 and everyone needs to see it!!!
I’m going to keep this short and sweet, I was pleasantly surprised by Jungle Cruise. I went in expecting a shallow treasure hunt movie, but instead I got a movie with a lot more heart, action, and even some twists. It also had some spectacular special effects/CGI that at times caused the only thought in my head to be “beautiful”. But honestly the best part was Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, those two working together in this movie was like cookies and cream. Perfect together. All in all this movie was very enjoyable to watch and deserves a 7.5 out of 10.
There was so many things that I loved about this movie so I’m just going to list of everything that I loved.
- First and foremost I had so much fun watching this movie. It had me saying “NEEEEEENJA” to myself so many times, which is a sure fire sign that a ninja movie is great in my eyes.
- Motorcycles, Motorcycles, and motorcycles. I love cool high tech motorcycles so they fill me with joy every time I see them.
- The costumes! Especially Snakes Eyes’s outfits, I loved how his outfits were a perfect combination of traditional and modern. It looked so cool.
- Oh and don’t forget… Henry Golding. I love me some Henry Golding.
Obviously there are more things I liked in the movie but these were my favorite parts, and these alone made the movie great in my eyes. Now I know people had some problems with this movie, mostly because of the fact that Snake Eyes talks and that his classic suit is only in the movie for like 5 seconds. I admit that they fucked up using the suit in all the advertising material. They should have not shown it all and then it would have been a great surprise at the end seeing the suit. Now the talking part is not actually a big problem for me because with the subtitle of G.I.Joe Origins I went in thinking that this was just going to be the start. By that I mean hopefully this is only the first movie and that next one would have the cause of why Snake Eyes either doesn’t or can’t talk. So all together I give this movie an 8 out of 10.
This might be late but as they say “better late then never”, so I’m going to dive straight in. All around Black Widow was a top tier movie but when you compare it to the rest of of the MCU it was actually kind of a low tier movie in my opinion. Obviously it had great acting, filming, special effects(you know the works), which is to only to be expected from an MCU so that doesn’t really amaze me anymore. Besides the basics I felt like the movie was lacking that special something that makes most MCU movies so great.
But I think the biggest reason why Black Widow was a let down for me was my massive disappointment with how they did Taskmaster. Now I’m no super fan or expert on Taskmaster but I was really excited to see what they did with the character. I was looking forward to seeing a badass cold-hearted mercenary who only cared about making money. I especially wanted that cliche line… you know the one that goes like “It’s not personal, it’s just business”. But instead of that we got a lobotomized trauma victim, which when you compare Taskmaster to the other Widows in the movie it wasn’t anything different. So, they basically turned someone who could have been a really unique character into a prop.
Now you’re probably thinking all of this means I think you shouldn’t see the movie but you’d actually be wrong. Sure it’s not the greatest movie but it’s defiantly worth it to see in theaters. Especially when you look at it as supporting movie theaters and even Scarlett Johansson. So, all around I would give the movie a 6.5 out of 10.
