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.

Deadpool Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on May 13, 2016 by getbent57

DeadpoolI missed seeing Deadpool in theaters when it was out.  Well now it is out on Blu-ray and DVD.  Knew I would like this movie with out seen it.  So bought a copy on Blu-ray.  Knew a little bit this comic book character going in.  Have heard so many get things about this movie.

Liked this movie a lot.  It was fun and very funny.  Being an R rate movie they could do so much more than other superhero movies set in this universe.  The fourth wall breaking was all so very entertaining.  You don’t see that very often.  As much as it was different than other superhero movies it was all pretty much the same as well.  It has plot points that have been done some many times.  The main one being the girl gets kidnapped and has to be saved.  Sure they make fun of these plot points but still do them any way.

This is an awesome movie.  Lots of fun to be had.  May not be may all time favourite comic book to movie every.  However it is better than most.  Looking forward to see what they do with the next one.  Sure there are some things I didn’t like about it.  But they can be over looked.  Well worth your time watching.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , on February 23, 2016 by getbent57

Assassins_Creed_Syndicate.jpgStart off with I did it.  Managed to complete 100% of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.  That would be the first time with any Assassin’s Creed games.  That goes to show how much fun this game is.  In past games would get close but trying to get all the missions done with in the parameters they set can be a pain.  But would give up.  Sure some of them are a pain in this game.  So I had to look up how other did.  Was still fun to go back and try again.

The game play is pretty much the same as past games but different at the same time.  However left like a real bad ass with both characters you play.  Getting and crafting better gear is nice.  All the the levelling and perks systems is great as well.  The story was the strongest in a very long time.  They felt more like how real people would interact with each other.  All so there was some good comedy worked in.

This game is so much better than the one before it, Unity.  This is what an Assassin’s Creed should be.  Big open world with lots of side mission and things to collect.  With a great story that is interesting and well acted.  This is now my second favourite AC game.  Like is some much thinking about getting the DLC and I never buy that stuff.  If you never played one of these games this is a good one to start with.  If you have this is a return to form.

Interstellar Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on January 10, 2016 by getbent57

InterstellarThe movie Interstellar have been on my must watch list for a long time now.  Knew it was a long movie so put off watching it.  Well that was until the other day.  Was blown way by this movie.  It had me interested all they way though.  There is a lot of sciences and space travel jargon.  But never feels over your head because they explain a lot of it.  Like all Christopher Nolan’s movies it is very beautiful to look at  and the soundtrack is amazing.  The plot twist have you surprised.   Only seen one coming.  Which is still pretty good when it happens.

Enjoyed this movie very much.  You know a movie is good when you still think about hours or days after seeing it.  If you are like myself and not watched it let because it seen to me too long.  Make the time.  It is well worth it.  It keep me engaged all the way though.

Ant-Man Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , on January 5, 2016 by getbent57

Ant_ManHave been wanting to see Ant-Man ever since it came out on Blu-ray a little while back.  So that is what I did New Years day after all the company and food was all gone.  Going to come out and say it.  It was good but not great.  Not the worst Marvel movie.  There is some pretty cool stuff in there with some funny bits.  However most of the funny stuff is all jokes we all have seen in many movies.  All the actors a great.  The problem is the whole storyline and plot point are generic.  Not sure why they all ways have to go do things were have all seen a million times before.

Was let down by this movie.  It could have been some much more.  They just re-did so many plot point and gags we all have seen over and over.  Am glad I watching it because the more superhero movies the better.  On that note after all they have made.  They think they could make them better and not just another generic one.

Back In Time Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on October 28, 2015 by getbent57

Back_In_TimeBack on October 21, 2015 the internet was a buzz because it was Back To The Future Day.  This was because in the second movie the date they go to in the future is Oct 21, 2015.  So there was movie stuff all over the internet.  All so on that day a new documentary called Back in Time was out on Netflix.  Wasn’t sure if it was on the Canadian Netflix.   Did a search and sure enough it’s on there.  So gave it a watch.

Going to say have only seen these movies once back in the day when the came out on VHS.  However know all about them because of the internet.  This documentary is interesting but boring at the same time.  They do interview the people who made as well as some of the cast.  All so do lots on the fans of the movies.  Am sure all the big fans of the three movies will love to see this.  I however found it not that great.  On the plus side want to go and watch the movies again.

A LEGO Brickumentary Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on August 8, 2015 by getbent57

A_LEGO_BrickumentaryHad to check out the documentary, A LEGO Brickumentary after seeing it reviewed on EP Daily.   Everyone knows LEGO is awesome and more than likely have some or did.  This documentary covers a lot of ground in the huge world that revolves around LEGO.  They start with some history which is really interesting.  Take a look inside the company.  They the rest which is the best parts.  Are talking to people who use it for so many different applications.   There are people who use it for art or architecture.  Others for therapy or fun.  Pretty much everything has a convention.  Turns out there are many just about LEGO.  It is amazing to see what people can make.

Have to say this is a really good documentary.  Like all good ones they only have some much time.  Would like to seen more.  One other thing I would like them to talked about would have been the video games.  Understand why they don’t.  It is the story of the toy itself.  Do recommended watching this documentary.  It is for anyone and everyone.  You can check out the trailer  > here if you are interested.
