Baby Driver Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on July 19, 2017 by getbent57

Back at the beginning of June made about post about the movie Baby Driver.  It looked really good and wanted to see it.  Not often I go to the movies but I had to go see this one.  Am a big fan of Edgar Wright movies.

Going to start by saying I enjoyed this movie a lot.  This director knows how to make an awesome open scenes.  The one does not disappoint.  The way he used the music to coincided with what was happen in action was pretty amazing.  I know there was small tidbits I missed.  So looking forward to watching it again when it’s out on Blu-ray.  This movie has everything a great action movie needs.  Crazy characters, awesome car chases, big shoot out and chase scenes.  It all works so well.

This is one of the best movies this year.  A must watch.  Will be buying a copy when it’s out on Blu-ray. That is how much I enjoyed this movie.

John Wick Review

John_WickI know I am late to the party.  Finally got to watching John Wick.  Have heard lots of great things about this movie.  Knew it would be a good action film.  Well it wasn’t good, it was awesome.  This is how action movies should be made. Cut right to the chase.  You don’t need a full backstory.  A few simple scenes and some quick dialog.  Then get right into the shoot outs and car chases.

This movies stands out from every other action movie I have seen.  With they way the gun battles are done.  We all to used to seeing how they are done in TV shows and other movies.  With sparks flying everywhere.  Sure this it is more violent. But when some one get shot they go down.  There is none of that silly flying back twenty feet.  Enjoyed this movie a lot.  Will have to watch chapter two next.  Well worth your time watching.  It is on Netflix so if you have that.  Put it on your list.

Doctor Strange Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on June 16, 2017 by getbent57

Doctor_StrangeHave been wanting to watch Doctor Strange for awhile now.  It is now on Netflix. So gave it a watch.  Find it pretty amazing that this is the fourteenth movie in this Marvel world.  What makes this one standout it brings in the this world, magic.  Really like how they explained and showed how that works.  It all makes sense. When I first seen the trailers for this movie thought it was going to be more serious than the other movies.  Well I was wrong.  There was a lot of comedy.  All of which (for the most part) was funny.

Didn’t know much about this Marvel character.  After watching the movie want to know more about him.  He is a pretty cool character.  Enjoyed this movie a lot.  It was something different for a superhero movie.  There might not be any surprising plot points. Nothing really new on that front.  However it was very fun watch.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2017 by getbent57

Have really enjoyed playing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.   Not only did I finish it game 100% I even got all the Trophies.  Making it the first Platinum one I ever got.  Had to take a picture.  Which you can see below.  This generation Ubisoft has made some of my favourite games.  Own more games by them then any other publishers/developer.

Am a big fun of the open world games. With big maps, lots to side missions and things to collect.  This game as has all that and more.  The map is one of the best to this date.  Every province has its own look and feel. When moving from one to another it all blends nicely.  The best parts of the game is the collecting of weapons and parts.  You can add different parts to one.  That have their own stats.  You can even have different paint for each part.  What I like most about the game is moving around the world.  There are lots of different ground and flying vehicles that are fun to use.  Then there are all the upgrades.  Depending on your play style there are hard chooses to make on which ones to upgrade at first.  You really don’t need them all but fun to get them all the same.

This is one of the best games I have played.  Had some much fun playing single player.  But even more fun in co-op.  Like the game so much thinking about buying the DLC.  High recommend playing this game.  You can’t go wrong spending you money on this one.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , on May 23, 2017 by getbent57

Guardians_Of_The_Galaxy_Vol_2Have not been to the theater to see a movie since last summer.  Now that the summer blockbusters have started.  Decided to go see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.  Did see the first movie.  Wasn’t the the biggest fan.  The story didn’t bring anything new to the table.  So was looking forward to see if the second one can be better.

Turns out this is one is way better than the first.  Had much more fun this time around.  It was all so a lot funnier.  Laughed out many times.  The story was better as well.  All the actors got to show more emotion.  There was great interaction and character growth.  Sure you can see plot twists coming.  Which is fine because the whole package was just pure fun.  There was some great surprise as well.  They upped the bar for the super hero movies.  There is a third movie in the works.  They have a big job ahead of themselves.  This is a much watch movie.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Four Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2017 by getbent57

The fourth season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.LD ended this past Tuesday (May 16, 2017).  Have liked this show from the start.  While the first two seasons were just ok.  Things got better half way though the third season.  This four season has been even better.  They did something different this time around.  They broke the story up into three segments.  Each acting like a mini season.  With one main storyline tying them together.  This worked out great.  Made it a lot more interesting.

The show improved a lot this season.  The storylines were better and more fun.  The action and fights were the best they have done as well.  The biggest improvement was with the visual effects.  They did an awesome job with Ghost Rider.  The show has been picked up for a fifth season.  So hope that one is even better.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract Blu-ray Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2017 by getbent57

As you may know if you have stopped by this blog every now again.  I am a big fan of the DC Universe Animated movies.  The newest one out is , Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.  This is part of the continuing storyline.  Which are under the banner DC Animated Movie Universe.  Really do like that they are doing this.  This way they can develop the characters over the long term.   Something they can’t do the the standalone movies.

This story is based of the the storyline from the 80’s Teen Titans comic book.  While weaving in elements from the the past few movies.  Never read those comics so was going in fresh.  Of all the movies in this world, this is the best one yet.  The other have been ok but nothing that really made them stand out.  Sure you can see some of the point twists coming a mile way.  Think mostly that is because there has been some many movies and TV shows that took them from comic books.

Liked this one a lot.  OF course it looks great and well acted.  The best part is see that all the characters have grown.  Not staying the same makes you more invested on the story.  Highly recommend giving this a watch.  You don’t have to see the other ones that came before.  It wouldn’t hurt but not that necessary.  All there is some good extras on the  Blu-ray disc.
