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.

Justice League Blu-Ray Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2018 by getbent57

Got around to watching the Justice League movie Blu-ray the other day.  This is another prime example of not to listen to what people say about a movie on the internet.  Just watch it for yourself.  This movie was great.  Think I have seen just about every animated versions of the Justice League in TV or movie.  This felt like a live action version of those.

This movie flowed along nicely.  Never was once bored .  Every actor seems to be into the character they played.  The action stuff was pretty awesome.  Sometimes in these comic book movies the storylines try to cram too much into them.  This one thankful did not.  Every scene made sense and worked well with what happened after it.  The only thing I didn’t like was that there was too much green screen.  Over all every much recommend watching this.  Not sure if they make other Justice League movie.  I hope they do.

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

Finished reading Charley Boorman’s newest book, Long Way Back, last night.  Have read all his books and enjoyed each one of them.  This one is no different.  The book is about, back in February 2016 he had a very bad accident which messed up this leg, ankles and wrist.  He talks about how it happened and the year long recovery.  Mixed in-between the book is all so an mini autobiography.   The tells stories from when I was a small child up to the present.  How it related to what he was going though the recovery.  It was all very interesting, fun or inspiring.

This man leads a very leads a very interesting life.  He seems very down to earth tellimg all kinds of stories most people would never share.  Very happy to have read this book as well as this others.  You don’t have to be into motorcycles to enjoy this.  Recommend this book to everyone.

The Grand Tour Guide to the World Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on January 1, 2018 by getbent57

Received a great book for Christmas, The Grand Tour Guide to the World.  Have been eyeballing this since I first heard about in October.  It took me two sits downs to read this.  This would be the fastest I ever read any book.  Mostly because there is a lot of pictures.  Which most of are pretty funny.  The others are behind the scenes.

The book is more of a comedy then a “car” one.  It shares the same sense of humor as the show.  They do use some of the same jokes.  There was a few times I laugh out.  There are some behind the scenes info but nothing that hasn’t been online all ready.  Did enjoy reading this.  If you are a fan of this show or the work these three have done in the past.  It is well worth checking out.

A Christmas Story Live Review

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

The past Sunday (December 17, 2017) A Christmas Story Live aired.  Like I said in my past post about this.  Not sure how this will work.  The movie is my all time favourite.  So I hope this doesn’t do the movie a disserves.

Well I watched it.  Going to say it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.  It had all the key elements from the movie.  With a song and danced numbers worked in.  There was some newer jokes worked in but they fell flat. It was well put together.  They did do an amazing job pulling a three hour show off live for TV.  With only a very small hiccups.  However over all it was kind of boring.

Batman And Harley Quinn Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2017 by getbent57

Have watched the newest DC Universe Animated movie Batman and Harley Quinn.  This is much different then the last bunch they have put it.  It has a similar look to 90’s TV show, Batman: The Animated Series. There was a much more lighted hearted tone with a bit a serious stuff mixed in.  There were lots of jokes.  They even and Batman take part in some of them.  As for the humour it was all over the place.  It had your kid friendly potty jokes and then there were some very adult jokes.  It kind of worked.  As for the story it was a bit disjointed.  The basis of the story has Batman and Nightwing needing Harley Quinn help to stop Poison Ivy and Floronic Man.  There is a few times it left like they cut some stuff out.  So when the next scene starts it felt like something was missing.

Over all like this movie.  There was a lot more fun this one than past ones.  All the voice acting was great.  All so like they tipped their hat to the 1960’s Batman TV show is spots.  This is a standalone movie so you don’t have to seen anything else before.  But is does help if you seen the 90’s cartoon.

Game Of Thrones Season 7 Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on August 30, 2017 by getbent57

Just like that season seven of Game of Thrones is over.  There may have only been seven episodes.  They did pack a lot of awesome into each one.  At time it felt like there were moving too fast.  When I look back at it.  Think its a good thing.  The whole story is coming to a close.  Every storyline is meeting up together.  Sure much like everyone I would love to see more episodes.  But that’s way it is.  Not going to give any spoilers.  Just going to say much like the past seasons.  You have to pay close attention because in-between then big battles and small talk.  There is all kinds of other information about what’s else is going on.

Not sure if this was the best season of the show.  However it was pretty awesome.  They did manage to answerer some of the questions we all had from the first season until now.  There is one season left.  So just know they well be pulling out all the spots.   My main wish for the last season, is they resolve everyone’s storyline in some way.
