The Foreigner Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2018 by getbent57

When I seen the trailer for the movie The Foreigner last summer (2017).  Knew I would like it not just because Jackie Chan is the star.  We all know the many action movies with all the crazy stunts.  This one is much different.  Sure he there still some stunts in there.  But that is not the point of the movie.  It is more of a serious thriller.  With a some good plot twits.

It is on Netflix so gave it a watch.  Like I said up above.  Knew I would like it.  But it is much better than I thought.  It had my attention all they way though.  All the actors were great.  The move at a good pace.  When the action did happen it was hard hitting and amazing to watch.  Sometimes movie endings are not that great.  This one was prefect.  Highly recommend giving it a watch.

Making Fun — The Story Of Funko Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2018 by getbent57

Now that the Funko documentary, Making Fun, The Story of Funko, on Netflix, gave it a watch.  It plays out and looks like every documentary made now a days.  It starts off with how the company came to be.  Had they build up a strong following.  Then part way though they start taking to fans. The last part is about the making of the Funko HQ.

Did like this documentary just wished there was more behind the scenes about them.  They have some fun interviews with some famous people.  Would all so liked to seen more of that. Over all it is well worth your time watching.  Just don’t think Funko fans will find anything new information they don’t know all ready.

Gotham Season Four Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 22, 2018 by getbent57

The fourth season of Gotham ended this past Thursday (May 17, 2018).  Must say this was the best season yet.  All the story arcs have been good.  They all flowed at a good pace.  Like how they didn’t try a cram too much at one time.  All so all the actors have gotten their characters down.  Another thing I liked about this season there was less silly things going on.

Am looking forward to seeing what season five will bring.  Fox announced that the fifth season will be it’s last.  This sucks because this is an awesome show.  One good thing about this is, the writers can craft an ending to the show.  A lot of times TV shows don’t know if there will be back for a final so they never get any a good ending.  If you haven’t seen this show yet, do so.  Think the first few seasons are on Netflix.

Batman Ninja Blu-ray Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2018 by getbent57

Gave Batman Ninja a watch on Blu-ray the other day.  This is not your regular DC animated movie.  It is a Japanese style animations made for that market.  Have not really watched any anime before.  Awhile back when I seen the trailer for this movie it looked inserting.  Being a big Batman fan I had to watch.  However after doing that don’t think I will be watching any other anime.  Sure it looks nice and it is top of the line animation work.  It is just doesn’t make any sense.

Really like how it looked.  The story started off good.  I has the Batman and the bad guys getting transported back in time to Japan.  Where each of the bad guys have taken over different parts.  So it is up to Batman and crew to put a stop to it.  Then part way though it turns weird.  For some reason each of these guys base of operation turns into a robot building which can do battle with each other.  Then they form together to make an even bigger robot building.  Not going to spoil how Batman and crew take this down.  But will say it is even weirder.  This movie is pretty much just for the die hard Batman fans.

Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2018 by getbent57

Gave Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay a watch the other day.  This is the newest DC Universe Animated movie.  Which takes place in the shared world of DC Animated Movie Universe.  When I first started to watch this forgot this was an R rated movie.  They have made some R movies in the past.  But nothing like this.  The have pushed things farther than ever before.  Being the Suicide Squad there will be lots of death.  This movies shows that a lot.  There is blood and even brain matter in spots.  Think this is a good thing.  It is ok to have kid friendly movies.  It is all so nice to have some that are for the adults.

The story is your standard action affair.  The squad is sent to get an object.  While another group are all so trying to get the same object.  Fights break out between the groups as well as each other.  Of course there is more to it than that.  All the acting is great.  There is even some good comedy worked in as well.  Over all really enjoyed this movie.  Think it this is best one in this storyline universe.  Well worth your time watching.

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season Three Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 16, 2018 by getbent57

Have really enjoyed season three of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.  Have said this in past posts talking about his show.  They have worked out the kinks from the first two seasons and have just made a very fun show to watch.  They got the right balance of action and comedy.  They are all so not afraid to switch the cast up.  Sure it is hard to see some of them go.  But it keeps the show fresh.  All so those characters can all ways come back.  It is a time travel show after all.

This is a much watch show.  It share universe as Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Black Lighting.  But is stands out from them its own fun way.  A while back wasn’t too sure if this show would be picked up for of fourth season.  Since it show different then its sister shows.  Turns out a few weeks back it was picked up again.  So looking forward to seeing what happens next.

Assassin’s Creed Movie Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on March 24, 2018 by getbent57

Am a bit late getting around to reviewing Assassin’s Creed movie.  If you have every stopped by this blog you will know I am a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed games.  When I first heard about his movie back in 2016 and see the trailer.  It looked interesting but wasn’t too sure how good it would be.  Then when it was out.  Heard lots of bad things about it.  So chucked it up to being another bad video game movie.

The movie has been on Netflix for a while now and has been on my list to watch.  So the other night gave it a watch.  Well I enjoyed this movie.  It was really well put together.  They did an awesome job of working in story elements and stuff from the games with out being on the nose with it.  Sure the over all story was simplified.  It is an action movie after all.  Speaking of action.  Those scenes were awesome.  The ending as a bit predictable.  Leaving it out for a sequel.  Would like to see another one.  But I don’t think it did do well at the box office.  If you have Netflix it well worth your time.
