I still love heading to the cinemas, do you as well? I still love going to see a good movie in the cinemas. That big screen, bringing a lot of fantasy to life. Especially for those who are not rich enough to have a cinema in their own home.
My partner and I only see certain movies in the cinemas these days. The cinema close by also have a fancy section “Gold Class” when you can get wines and meals, instead of just your popcorn and soda pop.
I just love going to it, but as I mentioned above, we are selective about which movies we’ll see in the cinemas. We’re probably going to end up seeing Mulan in Gold Class and get a fancy meal. The big screen just make the movie come even more alive. I just love it.
I finally got to watch the popular children’s film “Inside Out” (2015)…I know, I know…I had planned to see it when it came out, but I just never got around to it. I am not lying when I say that EVERYONE told me that I had to see it, I would completely relate to it…
I found it really boring. I had go in expecting to be completely thrilled and taken on this amazing ride. Now to be honest, maybe it transfers differently from a cinema screen to a television screen, but I just could not get into it. I found it really boring and really sad, it had been the complete opposite of what I had been expecting. I also really didn’t like “Joy”. I found her far to controlling and thinking she is far better than the other emotions. Maybe I was thinking to literally, but there just seems to be something wrong with trying to be joyful all the time. I felt she was more “arrogance” than joy. It just didn’t sit well with me. Which is weird because most people would say that I’m a happy person. I am, I just know it’s not possible to be joyful ALL the time. Which I also realised was one of the lessons to be learned, but it just didn’t sit well with me and I wanted to tell her to leave Sadness alone,lol
It also make me think though about seeing movies as soon as they come out and getting all caught up in the wild storm of a new film coming out. Instead of people waiting to see, giving it some time, everyone has to go and see it as soon as it comes out. I wonder if that makes people jump on a band wagon, so to speak. Getting all caught up and it’s actually not that good of a movie. In a age where people don’t like to be “wrong” I think this is a real possibility. Sometimes these “must see” movies, just aren’t really that “must see”.
I remember hearing recently about how these days, not only are there problems with “spoilers”. There are also problems with people knowing about the entire film before it even comes out, the costumes, outtakes, Instagram shots etc. Whereas a few years ago, you knew about the general idea. The actors, maybe the plot, but not much else. You’d probably get one or two movie posters but that would be about it, if we were lucky. These days it almost feels like we demand to know everything about everything. However, I will be writing about that more in another Blog later.
I saw Batman vs Superman over the weekend and I have to say that I was really impressed, it was a lot better than I thought that it was going to be! I am starting to think I have to let good of the whole judging a movie before I’ve seen it…Except for Suicide Squad, I will not go see Suicide Squad…Nope, you can’t make me!
Ben Affleck was awesome, the perfect combination of broody and emotion. Definitely better as Batman in this role, than he was in Daredevil. Henry Cavill, of course, is perfect again as Superman. Yes, there is quite a few CGI moments in the film, but that it is always expected in films these days. I don’t want too give away too much because it hasn’t even been a week yet and I don’t like being a spoilers type person.
The only thing I still feel was a bit of a miss was Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, it might just possibly be myself. I always see Lex Luthor as a older sophisticated evil genius. I just couldn’t get him as Lex Luthor.
You should definitely see this film in the cinema before it’s out of the cinema, I don’t think that it’s going to be as effective on a television screen.
In the last week I have seen both Deadpool and Zoolander and it’s amazing how vastly different the two movies are. Zoolander 2 is one of those movies that has it’s bits, but there are others that just run on and on and I’m not sure who made the decision that it was…well I think they thought it was funny? Deadpool though was amazing when it came to timing. None of the jokes run to long and it kept going, there was a nice flow and it all made sense.
I was disappointed in the Zoolander movie, just because I loved the original so much and I know that there’s the whole the sequels are never as good as the originals, but I really wanted this to be good. Deadpool was just amazing. If there is a sequel (which I believe there will be) I have a feeling it will be good.
It seems kind of harsh to judge these two movies at the same time, even though they are different types of movies. However, I put them together because these are two huge movies of the moment. It doesn’t shock me though that Deadpool is doing so much better than Zoolander 2. I just wish that whoever put the whole Zoolander film together really watched it all together.
Also one of the clear differences was that Zoolander is definitely more “child-friendly” than Deadpool. Here in Australia the rating for Deadpool in only MA15+. Which means children can see it if accompanied by a parent. However, I was shocked by the amount of parents who brought their children into see Deadpool, because I wouldn’t. During the movie I got uncomfortable knowing that there were children in there. It’s not even the sexual scenes, it’s a little gory and there are a few intense scenes.
Finally my partner and I gave into our nerdy side and we saw the new “Avengers” movie “Age of Ultron”…I felt like I needed to write this, because it seems like during the press junkets, they are getting such a bad wrap and I want people to still see this movie. It just seems such a shame these days that social media can make or break a movie these days, instead of letting people to just…escape…
For a sequel movie (which I had to remind myself since so many of Marvels’ movies are now interlinked) it was great! I always have a little fear going into sequels, they tend to either be really great or they are really horrible. Now the other thing is though I haven’t yet seen any of the Captain America movies and you will definitely have to see those movies to get some of the references.
What I liked most about this movie is though it manages to show each character from a different angle, it gave a deeper showing of each characters motivations and background, without dragging away from the story. The movie kept moving and you didn’t even notice the “breaks”. That’s what I love most about movies the chance to escape from reality. When someone can do that and give the characters depth while still moving the story and plot along, I just think that is genius!
