47 Ronin (2013)

"Hey you're a well known Japanese actor want to help me make a fantasy version of 47 Ronin for Hollywood by adding some authenticity?"
"Sure why not, what's the worst that can happen"

"When they said authentic I assumed we would speak Japanese, dammit, this can't be good"

"Even I can't save this one"



Oh Keanu where to start, no I should stop because I actually like Keanu. This is not good, it's entertaining I guess but no not good. They've taken a great story that didn't need anything extra added to it and then they added a lot. Sanada is solid as usual, Kikuchi is fantastic and the main reason for me not hating it.

Here's my advice if you like watching Keanu battle the supernatural go watch Constantine. If you like the samurai movie part watch any number of Japanese Samurai movies, a recent one I really liked was 13 Assassin's. If you want a bad combination of both saved by great visuals and a couple of actors trying their best watch this.

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

"Five, you hear me! Five times my salary from the first or find someone else for the money grab sequel"

I say that but I watched it anyway didn't I. I'll be honest it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. They still had some of the genuine feeling and comedy from the first but it was also reaching quite a bit. The first was a revelation this one is a decent sequel but don't expect anything new just better action.

The Heat (2013)

"For the last time we are not calling it Miss Un-Congenialty!"

It was entertaining I'll say that, it doesn't bring anything new just a couple of likable actresses in a usual storyline. Nice they gave Melissa McCarthy some serious moments. Should have given her more though as they are the more memorable parts of the film

Machete Kills (2013)

"We're too old for this shit"

"Hey buddy, that's my line!"


It's an entertaining movie, pretty much the same as the last one but they decided to make it more unbelievable, which unfortunately in this case meant worse. Loved Antonio Banderas cameo though. Let's face it if they make the third one though I'll still watch it.

So it's as predictable as the first which is fine, takes the piss out of Steve Jobs as well. Let's face it you watch it for the cool food animals and it's good for a chuckle.

Everyone loved this movie, I liked it as well but was not in love with it and after thinking about it I worked out why. The acting is amazing, the story line is not. That was the difference, the acting was better than the script.

I should have something witty to put here, but yeah, it's a movie about Donkey Kong.

Seriously you know the Peter Wilder Willy Wonka Meme, how isn't there one for that photo. So let me see, this movie is nothing new on the first one. The story line is good enough to keep ticking over. They go a bit overboard with the blood and the Queen of Sparta didn't need such a big role but still enjoyable! That and Eva Green is just awesome.

Started as a smart science fiction movie, for 15 minutes or so, then turned into a crappy horror movie. If you want a science fiction/horror movie look elsewhere there are plenty.

Loved reading the quips and your thoughts on these. Good to know I can continue to ignore some films listed here, and a couple I may check out now. I dug King of Kong too, and I'd agree you should check out Ju-On: The Grudge (I never cared about the remake, so can't compare the two). I've loved Time Bandits for a long time now, but then Gilliam is one of my top 5 directors ever, so yeah.

I'll be back to see what else you watch. :)

Thanks Giraffe, it's always nice to hear someone has a sense of humour as bad as mine! I can see why Time Bandits was popular but it just didn't push all the buttons for me. I just tell it how I see it, might start doing proper reviews soon.
Anyone else let me know what you think or movies I should see
