The Batman Review

This was my favorite DC movie to date and now I’m trying to decide if I like Pattinson more then Bale but I think, give him another movie and maybe a few more gadgets and Pattinson will me my new favorite. I actually really really enjoyed the dark, depressed, and basically emo Bruce. I just feel like it makes more sense to me to have the brooding Bruce instead of the playboy Bruce.

Another surprising thing to me was that I actually noticed and was really into the cinematography and music. Normally I don’t really pay attention to stuff like that, I usually pay more attention to the plot and movie as the whole then the different parts. So, the fact that this movies music and filming were special and different enough for me to not only notice but love it is amazing in my mind.

There was only one thing I wish there was more of and that was BRUCE WITH EYE MAKEUP!! I literally have no idea why but I loved seeing Bruce in his street clothes with the black eye makeup and I wish there was more of it. Even if it pushed it over the 3 hour mark. But all in all I would give it a 9 out of 10 and I can’t wait for another one.

BattleBots S06 E10: Predictions

Well I failed once again to get an 8 out of 8 prediction correct so this is my last time before the round of 32. Wish me luck.

Bloodsport vs. Claw Viper

I think Bloodsport will win this as long as they get their spinner going. I also can’t really see how Claw Viper can flip Bloodsport easily.

Madcatter vs. Rampage

100% Madcatter will win. And if for some reason they don’t then its bullshit.

Huge vs. Switchback

As always there has to be a fight that I can’t decide on. I can see Switchback being able to hit Huge but they don’t really have a good record this season so I have to ultimately say Huge will win.

Kraken vs. Glitch

Well as we’ve seen Glitch might be the new King of the low ground and I can’t really see how Kraken can do any damage to Glitch without damaging themselves so I think Glitch has the better chance of winning. But I really like Kraken so I’m still going to root for them to win.

Mammoth vs. Lucky

I think Mammoth will win this. I just don’t see how Lucky can flip Mammoth.

Rusty vs. Witch Doctor

Rusty’s great but I can’t see them beating Witch Doctor.

Fusion vs. Icewave

I know Fusion has been doing much better this season but I don’t think it’s fanciness can beat the simplicity of Icewaves weapon.

Blade vs. Dragon Slayer

Considering Blades record this season I have to say Dragon Slayer will win. But I do really want to see something impressive from Blade since it looks really cool.

Now let’s see what happens this time!

Dog Review

Dog was a really cute movie but more then that I feel like it was a really balanced movie. And by that I mean it wasn’t all sad or all happy. For every moment you laughed, you cried and vice versa.

That’s what made Dog unique for a dog movie. Normally you go into a movie about a dog expecting it to be all funny or ultimately sad by the end, but Dog wasn’t like that. My emotions went up and down during the entirety of the the movie which ultimately left me at a content emotional middle ground slightly leaning towards happy. If you know what I mean. Which is pretty good by my standards, but only if it’s for a movie about a dog. Ultimately if I was left feeling how I did after watching Dog for any other type of movie I wouldn’t have been impressed.

I also feel compelled to add that according to my dad the details they had about the Rangers were pretty accurate and as anyone can agree accuracy in a realistic movie is very important. So, all in all I would give Dog a 6 out of 10. An excellent dog movie but an average movie in general.

BattleBots S06 E09: Predictions

Last week I was more disappointed in the actual fights then my failures at prediction so hopefully it goes better this week.

Gruff vs. Cobalt

Cobalt is strong but I think Gruffs durability will win this one.

Duck! vs. Riptide

I’m not too confident in Riptide but Duck really disappointed me last time I rooted for them so this time I’m going to say Riptide.

Valkyrie vs. Pardon My French

We haven’t seen too much of what Pardon is capable of this season so I’m going to go with the safe bet and say Valkyrie will win.

Lock-Jaw vs. Blip

I’m not sure about this one but I’m feeling that Blip might be able to win this one if they can fling Lock-Jaw a couple of times.

Minotaur vs. Deep Six

Since I really enjoy Deep Six and really want to see a redemption for their last fight I’m going with them. Plus I’m not quite sure how much damage Minotaur can do to Deep Six.

Subzero vs. Hijinx

I think Hijinx will win this one.

Skorpios vs. Yeti

This is one of those fights where I can see either one winning so I’m going to root for the one I like more. Which is of course is the glorious hammer saw!(I love hammer saw bots)

Defender vs. Retrograde

I think Retrogrades low ground will allow them to have the control in the fight and thus the win.

As always lets hope I get that allusive 8 out of 8 correct.

Uncharted Review

I’m going to start this off by saying I haven’t played a single Uncharted game so I like to believe I have an unbiased opinion of the movie. And that opinion is that Uncharted is fun! It’s really that simple.

I could on and on about how I love treasure hunting and parkour movies separately so putting them together is even better, but why do that when I can just simple say that Uncharted was really enjoyable to watch. I (unlike some people) really liked the casting and thought Mark and Tom were great together. It was fun watching the start of this treasure hunting duo’s relationship. What really got me with this movie was the potential it has. Now, even though I loved watching Uncharted I will admit it could have been “deeper” I guess. I would have liked to see more emotional scenes both good and bad. But with the end credits it makes me hopeful that we’ll get to see Nate and Sully grow and evolve. I just really hope this movie at least gets one sequel so I can see more of it. All in all I would give Uncharted a 7.5 out of 10. It was a fun time watching it in theaters but could have had a little more to make it great.

BattleBots S06 E08: Predictions

I did okay last week so still aiming for a perfect score.

Malice vs. Blacksmith

I’m not super confident on this one but I think Blacksmith might win this one.

Black Dragon vs. Claw Viper

If Black Dragon doesn’t win this I will be shocked.

Gigabyte vs. Smeeeeeeeeeeee

This will either be a long fight or Gigabyte will win right away. But either way I think Gigabyte will win.

Glitch vs. Hydra

I want Hydra to win this one but from the last time we saw Glitch we know it has such low ground it gets stuck so I’m afraid it might have lower ground then Hydra. But I trust Hydra will know how to deal with that.

Tombstone vs. Free Shipping

This is another fight that if Tombstone doesn’t win it will be a crazy upset.

Ribbot vs. P1

I think Ribbot will win this one.

End Game vs. Sawblaze

Why do they have to keep doing fights that make me feel conflicted! I want Sawblaze to win with out a doubt but I also know that End Game is really tough to beat so it’s anyones game.

Captain Shrederator vs. Jäger

If Captain Shrederator doesn’t win then something is wrong with the world.

As always lets see how many I get right.

BattleBots S06 E07: Predictions

Sadly once again I did pretty bad last week at my predictions so also once again it’s time for me to redeem my self.

Bloodsport vs. Subzero

If Bloodsport can avoid Subzero long enough to spin up then I think they’ll win.

Cobalt vs. Ghost Raptor

This one I’m not sure with but for some reason I think Ghost Raptor will win.

Icewave vs. Deadlift

I think Icewave has the advantage in this fight so I’ll say they’ll win.

Blip vs. Overhaul

I feel like Blip will win this one.

Huge vs. Retrograde

This is another hard one, Huge has a better chance at damaging Retrograde but like Whiplash that one time Retrograde does have the chance at getting under Huge and stopping their weapon. But I’m still going to go with Huge on this one.

Copperhead vs. Fusion

Even though Fusion has been doing better this year I’m still going to go with Copperhead for this fight.

Whiplash vs. Skorpios

This is a hard one for me because I love hammer saws but between Whiplash and Skorpios I actually like Whiplash more so I’m going to root for them to win.

Switchback vs. Slammo!

This is a very weird fight so I’m not sure but I guess I’m feeling Switchback. I feel like their too much of a weird shape for Slammo to grab.

As always let’s hope I get at least 2 right because if I get less then that I’m a failure to the only sport I care to watch!

Death on the Nile Review

You know it’s pretty often when a trailer/ad claims the movie has a bunch of twists but it’s not often it being completely right! But Death on the Nile is one of those movies. Now I didn’t actually see the first movie but after seeing this one I’m probably going to watch it soon because I really really enjoyed watching this movie. This movie did indeed keep me guessing the whole time, which is fantastic for a murder mystery.

Besides the intriguing mystery I also loved Poirot and Bouc! They were my two favorite characters in this movie. Seeing the friendship between them and seeing their different sides made this movie whole. By that I mean it made the movie more then just a murder mystery it gave it a heart. I just enjoyed watching this movie a lot so I’m going to give it an 8 out of 10. It would have been a 10 out of 10 but I wasn’t able to guess the outcome.

Marry Me review

I thought this movie was really cute but I liked it for a completely different reason then most people probably did. That reason is the fact that it is based off an online graphic novel I read a long time ago! When I first saw the trailer for this movie I immediately suspected this was the comic that I read and so I looked it up and low and behold I was right. I got really excited seeing a comic I knew become a movie with a serious cast because it got me hopefully that other webcomics I’ve read might make it on the big screen to someday. But let’s get back to the movie.

If I’m being honest the movie was very different from the comic which most people probably won’t know that. Truthfully only the bare bones were the same but I surprisingly still liked it. It helped that it was a pretty unique story so the details of characters didn’t really matter that much to me. It kept the fun, heart, and even the silliness that I loved from the comic which is all that matters. All I know is that it is a great romantic comedy for Valentine’s day week and people will have fun watching it. So, I have to give it a 7 out of 10.

BattleBots S06 E06: Predictions

Only got a few wrong last week so I’m still trying to get that perfect 100% correct predictions. Maybe this week?

Rotator vs. Black Dragon

Plain and simple I think Black Dragon will win this one.

Lucky vs. Blade

Now I know Blade didn’t get a good start but I feel like it’s such a weird shape that Lucky might not be able to flip it successfully so I have to go for Blade this time.

Dragon Slayer vs. Minotaur

I’m iffy on this one, I could see Dragon Slayer winning, but ultimately I think Minotaurs weapon is stronger so I have to go for them.

Pain Train vs. Yeti

This has to be Yeti all the way. If it’s any other outcome then the hell has frozen over.

Hijinx vs. Kraken

This is one of those hard fights for me to guess because my heart and brain say different things. I could see Hijinx winning but I really like Kraken so I have to root for them.

Defender vs. Riptide

You know I’m not sure but I’m just feeling Defender on this one.

Hypershock vs. Lock-Jaw

Oh no, not another fight that I have no idea. Once again 2 very evenly matched bots so I just have to go with my gut and it says… Hypershock.

Deep Six vs. Smeeeeeeeee

I think it might take a second for Deep Six to get a good angle but as soon as they do the fights theirs.

And once again lets see how I do this time.
