América (2010)


Very interesting indie movie, but definitely not extraordinary, the story has a lot of potential but it never really goes out of any boundaries leaving kinda of a bland taste in your mouth, if the movie focused on being a dark comedy, something it proves it could be good at, i feel that it could be much better, but as a drama it does not fail, but, it does not succeed 100% either. 6/10

Hellboy (2004)

Hellboy: Hey Myers, you're a talker. What's a good word, a solid word for "need"?
John Myers: Well, "need" is a good, solid word.
Hellboy: Nah. Too needy.

If there is someone who can bring hellboy and his dark and gothic world to the big screen successfully is definitely Guillermo del Toro, in my opinion one of his best works to this day, even though as a fan it is kinda hard to compare his movies, great mysterious story, awesome creature design, and great comedy are among the greatest aspects of this movie. 8/10

As far as spy/action movies go, mission impossible is a good movie, even though i think the sequels are in my opinion more appealing and do a better job on representing the genre. This one delivers much less memorable moments then its successors, and even though the plot on this one is a little bit predictable a at times unnecessarily confusing, it still delivers a good spy story. 6/10

I wanted to watch this movie for a while, never had the chance until now, and after watching it i can definitely see why some fans felt disappointed, as it did not turn out to be the big event that it was supposedly promised, what we ended up with instead was an oversized anime episode with a bit too much filler, even the animation was not that great when compared to other anime movies, but...i still liked it, call it nostalgia goggles but it was still enjoyable to see these characters interact, the comedy was there, the fight scenes, even if lacking were still cool, and to be honest even Beerus was a interesting and funny character, but unfortunaly it did not live up to the hype, and suffers from quite a few problems so i won´t go any higher than a six. 6/10

Lucy (2014)


wow.....
i am not sure what to say after that other than the fact that it was probably one of the most visually interesting movie i have watched in a while.... has a really good pace to it.... and im not really sure if i can find any flaws in it, yes, its not scientifically accurate, but its a movie so it doesnt have to be (it shouldn´t be in fact), and on top of that it delivers exactly what it promises to deliver, so anyone that watches it should already know what they were going for, other than that i guess all i have to say is, its an enjoyable movie.... Scarlett Johansson is in it... so thats cool... right?.
7/10

Life in a Day (2011)


Probably one of the best documentaries i ever seen, i can really only describe it as a very Human film, even though that is not really a discription you can really give to something, but i don´t think there´s any other better word to describe it, never though that humanity could ever be so well represented in a hour and a half of "random" footage from all over the world, puts things in perspective, i truly recommend this one and its available for free on youtube so doesn´t hurt to check out. 8/10

Lou: Every young man's fantasy is to have a three-way.
Jacob: Yeah not with another fucking guy!
Lou: It's still a three-way!

For most part it succeeds at being funny, but it is a bit cliché and the storyline is nothing that we never seen before specially in these type of movies. overall preety average comedy, but still has its moments. 6/10

A very simple yet interesting concept actually ends up being an enjoyable and funny movie to watch, it is fun to watch these characters make their own versions of these movies, to the point where even i am curious to watch them (unfortunaly the website where they were actually available seems to be down), now, the probability of these homemade movies being as popular in real life as they were in the movie is very low, but for the sake of the movie and plot it works. 7/10

To be quite honest this movie just bored me out of my mind, now, i never watched the anime version so i can´t really compare both, but what i know for sure is that this one sucked! literally the only thing it has going for it are one or two cool fight scenes but thats prety much it because the rest is filled with cheesy and boring dialogue, not to talk about the ending, which was extremely anti-climatic and weirdly confusing, certainly hope the anime version is better. 3/10

Now i know that there is a lot of these out there, but me personally i like them so i decided to do one aswell to serve also as a personal "journal", so i just hope you like it and like always, feedback is always welcome ;)

Overall extremely lacking month on the movie department, at least on my standarts, still catching up with the new year i guess.

The way my rating goes:
1 - (ಠ_ಠ)....
2 - what the?!
3 - Very bad.
4 - just plain bad.
5 - meh...
6 - good/average.
7 - preety good/enjoyable.
8 - awesome.
9 - awesometacular!
10 - superb/Masterpiece.

Best Movie of The Month: Life in a Day.
