Nobody, starring Bob Odenkirk. From the director of Hardcore Harry, and the write of the John Wick series. Never thought of Odenkirk as an action hero, but he sells it well. a nice blend of action and humor. It's in theaters, but can also be watched at home on just about any platform where you can rent/purchase streaming movies.
I don't watch movies a lot but I watched Creed and that was a pretty fucked up thing to do. He made Adonis lift weights with his head and that was pretty nutty. That's fucked up if Rocky bragged later - Creed gets into real fights. So be smart - don't get beat up by him.
Then he makes him do that and he dies later.
What's Stallone saying - that he could beat him up. No need to force him to go on movies - fight then stupid bitch
Angel Has Fallen - I was bored and watched the Gerardlo Butler movies in succession over the week. First one is comfort junk food, second is same shit different place. Third is The Fugitive, and then he has a Metal Gear Solid boss fight at the end.
Angel Has Fallen is probably the best one. Though the schlock' "murder man machine" of the other 2 are fun.
Promises to stab the bad guy in the brain, then stabs him in the brain. Best bit.
Glass - I can see why a lot of people dislike this movie, it's overly long, talky, with fairly wooden dialogue not really how people would actually talk and probably not what they expected or wanted. But still like it and what it's trying to do. More interesting than 98% superhero movies that get farted out.
Reservoir Dogs.I'll admit i avoided this movie cause i saw some weird scene from it before.I barely remember what was about it.So i thought it was just some kind of joke of a movie.Like a satire of mobster movies but i was wrong.I missed a few minutes after going to the bathroom.So maybe i missed it or it was from something else.Overall the movie was pretty good.Perhaps the only thing i didn't like was that they didn't show the heist itself.The story was quite plain and it was mostly carried by some great actors.The ending didn't work for me.Cause unlike Donnie Brasco.It was hard yo buy the whole Mentor/Apprentice thing.Cause in DB they developed the same thing brilliantly.But in RD i saw nothing.
Old Boy. It is a Korenmovie, subtitles are included. It is about a guy who gets imprisoned in a hotel type room for 15 years because of something he did to someone in his past. I can't really get into to much detail or it will kill the movie. It is a fantastic movie that I would tell anyone to watch if you can deal with subtitles. It doesn't hurt that it blends action and mystery pretty well.
Army of the Dead.Man this movie was like reading one of those awful current comic books for 2 hours too much.All the shit that made me swear to never ever read western comics(save old ones) and start reading manga is right there:
-Side shaved tough chick.Has anyone seen a chick with that hair style...ever? it's terrible.I don't think even punks have those.I don't know which one was worse.Her hair style or the poochie the poodle hairstyle of the hispanic youtuber character.
-Chick with daddy issues.Holy shit.It's always the same shit in this stories.
-White Men are portrayed as either clowns,cowards or villains.I'm not even white but this shit is so tiring and is one of the hallmarks of an awful writer.
It's really bad when i started to root for the villains in this movie.I don't think it has happened to me in any movie i have ever seen and i have seen a shitload of movies.Was this the same Zack Snyder that did the Dawn of the Dead remake? did he really wrote this awful movie? did a computer wrote the script of this movie instead of a human being? it's that why it feels so generic?
Gangs of New York.I heard the Irish suffered some kind of discrimination in the US but i never knew it was to such a huge extent.I'm honestly shocked they were treated so poorly.I still have to see the last 30 minutes cause i needed to do something else.But so far i don't think it will change my opinion about this movie.It's a great movie overall.I love this type of movies were i learn something about another country i have never visited.
Alright i watched the last part of this movie and overall it was great.I always thought new york was one of those..how to explain...progressive cities...fighting the evil racist southerners...if i go by the us movies i have watched before.But i was honestly surprised when i saw them hanging black people in that riot.Cause of their race.
Ironically the last fight between the dead rabbits vs the natives brought the movie down by quite a lot...it was a huge let down.It was not even close to the first fight between them.It even felt cheap as hell.It's a shame they had to add those fucking ship cannons to ruin their fight.
Behind Enemy Lines - This movie always make me laugh. You have Gene Hackman, who's like, god tier actor, even when he's in shit, he automatically makes it good by virtue of being Gene Hackman.
And then you have Owen Wilson. Not exactly "action hero" material. Goofy stoner dude. In Black Hawk Down. With a plane.
Also, of note - GTA4 ripped off the villains' appearance
Peninsula.I heard this sequel to Train to Busan was bad but holy crap.It was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse.Even the beginning of the movie was pretty telling when the fat guy from the US i think was patronizing the koreans.The movie was completely aimed to american audiences.What's even worse it's that it was trying to copy modern western movies.It's a shame the writer forgot about his roots and his own fans.He probably only heard the bitching about the first one being too melodramatic from the west so he changed the tone of the series completely.The zombies became background characters and a complete joke.Just like that ''major?'' jane at the end.
