now you see me movie review

So I went to see Justice League...

But before I continue, I would like to make it clear that I am not a film critic so this will be all over the place. I promise NO SPOILERS.

First thing’s first tho - When the movie ends, do not leave right away. Wait for the post-credit scene. You will not be disappointed. I was stoked. One of my favorite villains - to some who knows me will know who I’m talking about - is in this scene and I am very happy.

Now onto the film - I’ve always been a DC fan so I am a bit biased. I’m not going to say there wasn’t anything I didn’t like about the film - There is ONE THING but it’s not the acting, not the storyline, not the dialogue. Everyone’s great in the movie. Even Miss Amber Heard - She’s awesome. But this one thing I think really distracted me in the beginning but I got over it. And yes. I’m talking about Henry’s CGI :/

BUT - the rest of the film - At least to me is brilliant. Each characters I think were given enough scenes that we got to know more about them. JL in my opinion is a good base for the stand-alones coz this film made you care about each one of them. I just cannot wait for part 2.

The entire movie for me was very entertaining. I love seeing the Amazonians - And during some flashbacks, we’ll see some characters that is definitely gonna be in the next JL film/s. Definitely. 

We saw a lot of action in the trailers but I was really happy that most of the things we saw on the trailer were just BITS. There’s so much MORE especially when they are all UNITED [wink wink.]

I’ll give you this tho. All Barry scenes are both priceless and precious. He’s absolutely a favorite. He’s the one you’d want to protect ha And his scenes with Supes are my favorites… 

So, yup. It was great, it was entertaining. There’s one small detail that almost distracted me but I can forgive it coz I mean, come on, JUSTICE LEAGUE on the big screen. If you’re a DC fan, you will love it! Go get your tickets and see it! I know I’ll see it again sometime this weekend :)

Enjoy your evening everyone!!

Guard: Sir, she has no ID and I can’t allow someone into the exhibit when they could be exposed to such-
V: She was the model for the entire series

[INTERVIEW] Armed & Dangerous

An interview by Armie Hammer Global

With at least four movies coming out this year, including the explosive Free Fire and the exquisite Call Me By Your Name, 2017 will definitely be a busy year for Armie. At Armie Hammer Global, we sat down to speak with the boss man himself about his career, his upcoming projects, and even about fans. 

 Let’s set the scene for all of you. It’s April Fool’s Day, but this meet up is dead serious (well…not really but at least a little bit). We are spread on three different time zones and two continents, but the common sunny weather makes it seem like the three of us are all in the same place, and of course, we’re all smiles. We won’t lie to you…it took a hot minute to all but Samurai Jack our way around some technical difficulties, but if there’s one common trait we share, it’s the ability to be absolute troopers through hardship. Thankfully, it wasn’t terribly long before we were all face-to-face (screen-to-face?) with one another and ready to delve into our little chat, starting with Armie’s incredible adaptability. 

Armie Hammer Global: Your filmography is very diverse. One project is completely different from another. You’ve been in big productions, indie films, you’ve played a lot of different characters. Was this richness something you wanted and aimed for? 
Armie Hammer: Yes and no. You know, that’s part of the fun of being an actor; it’s getting to do all the different stuffs and getting to work with different people and do different projects, play different characters, which is a lot of fun. I’ve been really lucky that I’ve got to do a little bit of an array of different characters. But the main criteria for how I pick my projects is really who is directing it. It’s just so important in movie making, the director and his vision and his execution of that. That has so much more to do with how a movie turns out than I feel almost anything else, including the script and all the rest. It really is just about the director. More than anything I just aim to work with a diverse list of directors, therefore it’s been a great process getting to work with so many different directors and do so many different projects. I feel lucky. More so than actually I feel like I am in control of making the decisions. 

 What a perfect transition with our next question! We know that you would like to direct someday. What kind of director would you be? The one that writes, produces and does everything, or just stay behind the camera? 
It’s a good question. I don’t know yet. I know that I want to direct movies and I’ve been privileged enough to see so many great directors sort of first-hand direct movies, and I’ve said to myself, “Oh, I’m definitely going to steal that,” or, “Oh, that’s a really good idea, I’ll make sure I do that.” I would like to think that I would have the attention to details that David Fincher has, the relaxed warm nature that Stanley Tucci has, the vision that Ben Wheatley has. All the directors each bring something so different to it. I don’t know what I would bring to it because I haven’t done it yet. 

Do you usually pay attention to the reviews of your movies and has one ever upset you? Have you ever critiqued a critic about you?
I would ultimately like to say I never read reviews, and that they never bothered me or anything like that, but the fact of the matter is when you’re there and the movie is coming out, it’s such a sort of all-encompassing feeling where everybody is on pins and needles. Everybody is anticipating the release and what’s going to happen, how numbers are going to look, what the reviews are going to say. If they’re good people kind of celebrate and they say, “Look at this one, look at this one!”, and if they’re bad, they go, “Look what you wrote!”. It’s impossible to avoid them, just because that’s the society and that’s the age we live in now. But I don’t seek out reviews, definitely. I definitely have read things said about me, in reviews and things like that, specifically about Lone Ranger. That one got a really bad reaction from really everybody without anyone expecting it. That one didn’t feel so good, other than that, it’s been fine. 

And you have received some really great reviews for Call Me By Your Name!
Yeah, we got a lot! But I’m more excited about the fact that Luca got such great reviews. We were in all those places where we were premiering the movie, and just seeing how happy it made him it was really nice.

Directed by Luca Guadagnino, Call Me By Your Name is the adaptation of the same titled book written by Andre Aciman. It tells the love story between Elio Perlman (played by Timothée Chalamet), a 17 years-old American-Italian boy spending the summer in the family villa in Italy, and Oliver (played by Armie in the film), a 24 years-old American scholar who stays with the Perlmans for the summer in order to work on his doctorate and help Elio’s father with his correspondences. Set in the 80’s, Call Me By Your Name takes you on a ride through a beautiful and hot Italy. The film was very appreciated by the audiences of Sundance and the Berlinale, two movie festivals where it was played. The various screenings were followed by unanimously positive reviews from both the festivalgoers and critics.
Call Me By Your Name is set to have a limited release in New York and Los Angeles starting on November 24th 2017.

Armie as Oliver in Call Me By Your Name. Picture courtesy of Sony Pictures Classic. 

In the book, Elio describes Oliver as a complex person. Do you think that Oliver is as complex as Elios sees him, or is it Elio’s youth and inexperience that blinds him?
It’s both. They are both really intricate and complex humans. They are two people trying to figure themselves out. They are trying to figure out life, they are trying to discover what they like, what they enjoy, what sets them off. It’s not necessarily that one is more complex than the other or anything like that. Both of them are sort of like coming of age and discovering themselves. Obviously, more or so with Elio because he is a little bit younger than Oliver. It’s honestly about two people finding a connection and really realizing that there is something deeper there and having the courage to do something about it. And in some ways, you can really relate to what is happening to them. Everybody has felt, at some point in their life, that feeling of butterflies in the stomach. You don’t know why you feel this when you’re around that specific person, but you know that you feel something strong with them, and having to find the courage to do something about it, the beauty that can unfold with that. And then like all great summer romances that almost everybody’s had, they end. 

What was the most complicated thing about playing a role like Oliver? Were you anxious about filming the more sensual scenes?
I wouldn’t say that I was anxious about filming the sensual scenes. I would say that there were things in this movie I had to do on camera that I had never done on camera before, like being comfortable being naked or being intimate with another man. I have never done that in my personal life, being intimate with another man (laughs). For me, I recognize more than anything, it was going to be a very good challenge as an actor because I would have to act, because this isn’t something I do in my everyday life, this isn’t something I really recognize. I had to do a lot of work to understand the psychology behind these guys, I had to do a lot of work to understand the things that they did together because it’s just different from how I live my life. Which is, by the way, I guess, all acting really is. It should be different from you, right? Otherwise, we are just doing the same part over and over. 

Would you say that acting is a form of art?
Yes, it’s just a different medium. You don’t use paint or brushes or anything like that, but acting is one of the oldest jobs in the world, and basically our job as an actor is to be able to put ourselves into a situation and allow someone watching it a way into it. For Call Me By Your Name for example, everybody has been talking about this peach scene, where Elio is intimate with a peach. I honestly don’t get it. Nothing about that scene really makes sense to me necessarily; because I never had sex with a piece of fruit and I have never eaten a fruit that someone else has had sex with. And I wouldn’t think a lot of people have. But our job while in that scene is to give somebody a window into it where even if they go, “I would never do that, I would not do it,” they also say, “but I understand why these two people are doing this”. It’s about experiencing it yourself while you’re there, but also emoting such a way that you give people a way into it, which is the challenge. It’s our job as an actor to sort of reflect what’s going on in society, give it back to people, give them something to think about, give them something to feel. Not to sound all grandiose or whatever.

Armie Hammer is the cool Ord in Ben Wheatley’s new movie Free Fire. Picture courtesy of A24.

Boston, 1978, a gun deal in an empty warehouse goes wrong and turns into a real bullets fest. That is Free Fire, a brilliant and explosive comedy directed by Ben Wheatley and in which Armie plays Ord, the middleman that looks way too cool for the situation. Free Fire is simply an hour and a half of pure fun and great lines sublimed by a talented cast. Already out in the UK, the movie will hit more theaters across the world by the end of April, including in North America on April 21st, Russia and Australia on April 27th. 

We saw Free Fire and absolutely loved it! What struck us the most in the movie is that, despite the crazy and out of hand situation depicted, every shot seems really precise.
If you knew how much work actually went into the film and Ben. They had to plan out every bullet hit in the movie months before we got there. And then you have a bunch of actors who show up and go, “Actually, I wanna go over there and do that,” and he’s like, “Nonono you can’t go over there”. It was like a real process. It’s so funny because when we started making that movie the script was sort of different from now. Because Ben is so fluid as a director, he writes and comes up with everything, he and his wife together. If there was anything that needed change it was changed right there on the set. And all of us got together, all the acting crew, and had such a good time with this movie that it just became funny. It really kind of became what it is now. A lot of the lines that you see that are like, the funny lines, whether it’s some of Sharlto (Copley) or some of mine, are all things that we really came up with on set.

Ord is quite the character. Despite the situation, he seems to keep things in control and it’s intriguing. Tell us a bit more about him. What is his story? Where does his calm come from?
Basically, Ord is so calm…because he’s just seen too much shit. This is like 1978, so about 8 years after he probably got back from Vietnam. This is the backstory that I gave the character. The reason why he got the nickname Ord is that he was an explosive expert in Vietnam. And his specialty, because he is a bit of a sick, twisted fucker, is that he would put posters in Vietnamese on a tree with big writing, and every line the writing would get a little bit smaller, a little bit smaller and a little bit smaller till eventually it was tiny. Then he would put landmines at the bottom of the tree so people would come up to read it and blow up. He’s a bit of a head case and he was in Vietnam, and I read a book about Vietnam called the Short Timers, which is actually a book that Full Metal Jacket is based of off. I read that and there is a really interesting line about it that says, “You don’t know the truth until you know death,” or something like that, “because death is the ultimate truth and everything else is really lies”. These guys in Vietnam expected to die every single minute so they just became friends with death, in a weird way, because they knew it was the only truth that existed, like, “He’s not a bad guy or a good guy, the truth is, he’s gonna die and I’m gonna die”. So, Ord came so close to dying so many times, like, “I should be dead so it doesn’t really matter at this point anymore”. He gets shot and he’s like, “Ah fuck”! He doesn’t have fear because he has already been so scared that nothing can scare him anymore. That’s why he’s pretty cool under pressure, that’s why he knows how to work with firearms better than anybody else, that’s why he is tactically minded, and that’s why as soon as it started to elevate, he backs up.

Do you have a lot of control on how you create your characters?
I would say it is teamwork. The writer is ultimately the one that puts everything down on paper. And then if the script is good enough, the director gets involved, and then boom you have a movie that kind of starts to go. The writer really sort of comes up with the foundation of everything. But obviously, they have written it before anybody was casted, so it’s not like he can tailor-make a role that fits perfectly. He makes the role that’s in his head. So once they hire an actor, it’s about finding symbiosis between the actor, the writer, and the director so that everybody is happy. Ultimately, you want the writer to be happy, the director to be happy and you, as an artist, you want to be happy. So it becomes more like teamwork. Sometimes you have more control sometimes you have less. I mean, when I did the Social Network, I had very little control over everything because the other people in control were David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin, and I definitely don’t think I know more than these guys.

Let’s talk about Mine because that really is a big moment for you! That was the very first movie you were just starring by yourself, your name is on the poster and everywhere. How does that feel for you? And congratulations by the way!
Thank you! It was great. It was a lot of pressure, especially because, for a majority of the movie, I’m really the only person on screen. I probably shot 75% of the film by myself, as the only actor and person in the scene, which is crazy. It doesn’t really give you anything to play of off, anybody to take cues from. It was a lot of work and we shot it in the Canary Islands, small islands channel along the coast of Morocco, it was hot, it was windy, we had sandstorms, lightning strikes, and it was just crazy. It was an intense filming. But I am happy I got to work with two great new Italian directors, Fabio and Fabio. I got to work with Tom Cullen who, in my opinion, is one of the best working actors out there right now. Annabelle Wallis as well, she was fantastic, Jeff Bells…it was a lot of fun making that movie. For a movie I basically stand still the entire time, I was shocked at how physically challenging it was.

Mike has to survive 52 hours in the desert with one knee on the ground. Not the most comfortable position, how was it for you?
I was probably kneeling 10 hours a day, for a month or something. My right knee still pops and gives me trouble and hurts. I was on my right knee the whole time with my left foot up. My knee is still kind of shocked.

Armie hits where you don’t expect him, including in animated movies. Earlier this year, the actor officially joined the Cars family and voiced Jackson Storm, one of the new characters from the third installment of the Disney Pixar franchise. We don’t know much about his cool-looking character yet, except that he is really fast and, apparently, not so likable. 

First of all, we are very, very excited about this particular project because we love Cars! How did you become a part of the project?
I don’t actually know. I got a phone call from my agent one day, and he was like, “Buddy, I just got a call from Pixar,” and I was like, “What?” and he’s like, “They want you to be in the new Cars movie,” and I was like, “Are you serious? I’m so excited!” I was really lucky; I didn’t have to audition, I didn’t have to do anything. They just kind of called and said, “Do you want to be in this movie?” Maybe they were like, “You know Armie is an asshole, he’d be a really good asshole in the movie.”

We read somewhere that you were chosen thanks to your role as the Winklevoss twins in the Social Network.
Well, they were assholes so there’s that (laughs).


If you have twitter, you probably already saw screen captures of, often very funny, conversations between Armie and fans. Needless to say his answers are always very appreciated by the lucky ones who receive his messages.

You answer a lot to fans online. Why do you dedicate so much time to it?
Well, the reason that I talk to you guys is really because you’re nice. You seem like well-rounded and normal people, you guys live your life. You like my work and that’s nice and I do appreciate that. I don’t answer to everybody, that’s for sure. I would say that I spend so much time answering to people because if somebody is going to take the time to write something and go out of their way and say, “Hey man, I just wanna say I really like your movie,” or whatever, it’s nice, it’s appreciated. It is the same as like if you’re a chef and someone says, “Oh my god, I love the way you cook salmon, I love your steak.” You’re kind of an asshole if you just go, “yeah whatever”. I don’t know, they took the time to write for me, so it’s only fair that I take the time to say, “thanks I appreciate it”.

Not everybody really does that. Another thing we noticed is that there’s no sense of hierarchy with you. You treat fans as normal people, not as ones who are less than you.
I think that the root of that is probably that those people, who treat people like that, think that they are not normal people, either. They think they’re above everything. At the end of the day, you’re doing your job. I trained as an actor, I went to school as an actor, this is what I studied. It’s like being an electrical engineer. I just get to do my job, I get to make movies, I get to do this. It brings so much joy to me to make movies and if it brings that much joy to someone to watch a movie, then that works, it’s great. It seems like teamwork, almost.


To finish, we offered to switch roles, allowing Armie to ask us anything he wanted. Because April Fool’s!
Armie: How much time out of your day do you spend working on the site? Armie Hammer Global: Well, it depends on what you are doing. For example, last year, when you were promoting three different movies at each festival, it would take up to three hours every evening. We usually search for your name, for pictures, videos, interviews, and articles, and we also monitor social media. In the end, it’s really all about organization, because it also depends on how busy we are with our lives. /

If you ask Soul Evans if he has any superpowers, he would say for certain that he does. But he won’t tell you about how he can turn into a literal fucking scythe, nor about the way he is able to command the rhythm of a fight with an improvised melody from the piano in his mind. While he might cite his cool-kid aesthetic as being ‘super,’ if you ask him in earnest, he will tell you that his power is being able to read his meister like she reads Austen.

Just saw Wonder Woman. And I only have two words right now, because I’m still shook. FUCKING PHENOMENAL. There will be a real review later, when I have collected myself. But seriously, I walked in expecting a DC bomb once again. I was absolutely fucking wrong. Just…I hope this isn’t the only movie to come out fantastic. Like a one hit wonder. Still HOLY SHIT I’M SHOOK AS ALL HELL, GOOSEBUMPS AND ALL FOLKS. GOOSEBUMPS AND ALL. (I also now ship Steve x Diana. Goodbye Bruce, you had your time. But stab me in the heart don’t get me started on Steve and Diana. I might cry. I love them so much)

Descendants 2 Soundtrack Review

So I’ve been busy listening to the Waitress soundtrack and forgot to listen to the album when it dropped! But today I sat down and listened to the album and here are my thoughts, song by song.

Ways To Be Wicked: kinda stale atm, tbh. I wonder how it will fit into the movie (if it’s even in it at all) but still pretty catchy, not gonna lie.

What’s My Name: probably my favourite original song for the movie. Besides the atrocity of Harry Hook’s scottish rapping skills, I’d be down to play this in public.

Chillin’ Like a Villain: My number 2 favourite song. It’s catchy as fuck and summery which is a plus (side note, the 1st movie had a severe lack of summery songs, which is sad). The lyrics are sometimes cheesy but it’s for kids, so what can you do.

Space Between: tragic gay ™ Malvie love song. Not my favourite but sounds nice. I’m sure it’s gonna be sad af during the movie but atm, not a huge fan.

It’s Going Down: OMG. So basically Hamilton with Descendants (which is something I’m DOWN for). And Ben’s solo is gonna be in slo-mo, calling it now.

You and Me: will be played during the credits, calling that now too. Not that remarkable but nice to listen to.

Kiss the Girl: It’s alright. Jay’s background speech/singing is probably the worst part of the song. Pretty bland.

Poor Unfortunate Souls: Uma sounds like a 5-year-old during the beginning verse? Why? And also when she goes on about “Idle Praddle” it pisses me off. WHY DID SHE START FUCKING UP THE BEAT? Ugh. Still, it’s the best Disney cover Descendants have done though (looking at you, Be Our Guest).

Better Together: rip off

Evil: rip off

Rather Be With You: rip off

I think I like this one better than the first, but it’s not that remarkable. I liked listening to it though. Not that bad. I’m keen to see the movie now.

Book of Atlantic (sub)

Back from the premiere of Kuroshitsuji: Book of Atlantic! Went with my friends and we cosplayed the reaper trio (Will, Grell, and Ronald).

***SPOILERS AHEAD. SCROLL PAST TO AVOID***


I’m pleased with how well it stuck to the manga but of course there are changes to the lines and all. I’m super disappointed they cut Ciel’s speech to Snake about accepting himself and Tanaka was only mentioned during Seb’s Cinematic Record (and about 2 seconds of screen time in the beginning seeing Ciel off).

The animation was really good and beautifully smooth (2D only, the 3D models are still really wonky and out of place). The sound effects were on point and they really did well with Sebastian’s demon voice. If you were looking for a voice change with Undertaker it is definitely noticeable (much lower and smoother than his usual squeaky door voice lol). He is SIGNIFICANTLY more overpowered in the movie than in the manga. But that might just be me. He was swinging his scythe and sending out huge plumes of fire (? lasers? glowing wind???) And demolishing things without his scythe even being near it (if it was unclear in the manga, Undertaker definitely swung his scythe and cut the boat in half in the movie with his scythe from the inside).

I personally felt that having the animation made it much more clear how they were moving and fighting than in the manga and the camera movements and sound effects really enhanced the overall feel of the fighting sequences. The fight with the reapers, Sebastian, and Undertaker felt really intense. The green glowing effects they added to Undertaker and his scythe really created a more intimidating image of him imo

Things I’m glad they kept:
-Titanic scene with Grell and Ron
-Seb in a doctor outfit
-Ronald riding his scythe like a segway
-The derpy chibi expressions from the manga
-The scene between Ciel and Lizzy with both of them being stubborn then apologizing
-Snake being more expressive than in the Circus Arc/season
-Lizzy’s flashbacks

I’d go see it again honestly, but I’ll have to wait for the dubbed DVD like everyone else now lol (Also because I want to know if Undertaker’s voice change translates over into the English dub). Feel free to hit me up about the movie if you like! :D

non-negative thoughts about Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Alright so I took a look through the Valerian tag and saw that a lot (most?) people hated the movie/characters and I just thought I would share what I thought of the movie, cause I enjoyed it really *shrugs* 

First off, I am definitely no intense critic, and I can assure you all that I didn’t watch this movie in a critical way. I also haven’t read any of the comics (I really want to now though) so I can’t say whether or not the characters are true to the originals. Possible small spoilers ahead? No major plot spoilers, but just beware. Thoughts under the cut cause it got kinda lengthy ~

Man, the DCEU fandom is the best. I was bummed this morning to see the shitty reviews, but our fellow fans who saw the movie came through. I know some will probably try to troll this post with comments like, “Yeah, they’re telling you what you want to hear, because you’re all biased,” so let me just say that all of the fan reviews I’ve read are fair and include some things they’d change. I’m finding my hype level skyrocketing now.

I wasn’t planning on writing a review but I lurked through reviews on tumblr and otherwise to see if anyone had said what was on my mind, and nobody really had (everyone’s either too light or too harsh imo) so I decided to roll up my sleeves and type this out. (It gets long so there’s a readmore, also full of spoilers)

First things first I never like writing only bad things about something, so here’s what I liked:

  • Aditi. The only person who like, actually acted properly in this movie.
  • Her outfits. I mean, hello! (I mean I was complaining about why a doctor would be wearing such things while at work, but I mean every single one of her outfits were stunning.)
  • the music. (duhhhhhhh) and the cinematography (also duhhhhh.) 

That’s about it. (woops.) 


It seems that Mani Ratnam’s goal in this film was as follows: 

Doctor and fighter pilot fall in love. Fighter pilot is a sexist, self-centered, egoistical piece of poo (who mostly likely has Dad Problems™). (however he is somehow self aware enough to realize he is incapable of living as a husband/father.) Doctor still loves him anyways and keeps coming back to him, effectively hurting herself in the process - ie. The Textbook Abusive Relationship (seriously, this movie could be used as an educational tool.) But of course, it’s filmy, so we’re going to make it seem ~tragically beautiful~ for the aesthetic and add some ‘she was his salvation, he was her destruction’ type stuff. (quite literally “she is light, I am darkness” is a direct quote from namma male lead.) 

AND THEN, our fighter pilot gets captured by the enemy. During his time in prison, he reflects on his awful behaviour, and realizes his mistakes. When he is finally free and united with his lover, he apologizes, a reformed man, and now takes on the responsibility of a family man (and does a good job of it). We leave learning a lesson: we now know what an abusive relationship looks like, having learnt from Leela and VC’s mistakes. We swear not to let a man walk all over us, we swear to value our s/o as an equal. We leave the film happy knowing that Leela is safe with a reformed VC.

Unfortunately, that’s not how this film turned out.

Thoughts on “Mother!”

  • The reviews were not in any way exaggerating, “Mother!” is either the most or the second most fucked up movie I’ve ever seen, competing only with 1980’s “Possession.” I mean, holy shit. I can’t provide any specific content warnings without spoiler, but let me just say: if you have a strong trigger, don’t see it. It crossed several lines for what’s typically acceptable on screen.
  • I understand why there are so many differing interpretations of it now: there are multiple layers of symbolism and meaning going on simultaneously, but some parts of the movie emphasize certain messages more than others, so which parts of the movie you find most important will influence what you think the movie is about. For me, I picked up on two major themes, both of which were throughout the movie but were highlighted in different parts of it:
  • The first 90 minutes were focused on the devaluation of “feminine” labor and the accompanying dehumanization of women.
  • The last 30 minutes- where shit really goes off the walls- was a blistering, brutal attack on the Christian interpretation of God, specifically the Catholic God.
  • Again, these themes are intertwined, with several others, throughout.
  • As for my rating of the movie? I’m in the same uncomfortable position now I was in after I watched “Possession”: this was an extraordinary movie, and I believe it easily deserved a 10/10, but I’m almost afraid to give it that rating because of a strong moral repulsion to much of what the movie depicted. So, for now, I’m going to withhold assigning it a rating until I can think about it more.

SPIDERMAN HOMECOMING REVIEW - MILD SPOILERS

Spiderman: Homecoming is without a doubt one of the best MCU movies to date. 

I have to admit my expectations were a bit low going into the movie because I was disappointed by some of the recent Marvel movies, but i truly underestimated them & didn’t think I’d like it as much as I did. The movie is truly fantastic.

Even though we’ve already seen Tom Holland as Spiderman in Civil War, I really enjoyed seeing him again in the role, he’s incredible & I love this version of Peter though I do wish we got to see more of his nerdy side. Can’t wait to see more of Tom Holland & more of Spidey in the MCU. I also loved that we get to see Peter realize how bad he is at being a superhero, which is quite unique; I appreciated that Peter also had to learn many lessons along the way and that the movie show that he’s still a kid and he’s growing up (ex: when he tried to unlock the full capabilities of the suit)

As for the plot, I LOVED it & loved seeing a sort of heist scenario in a superhero movie. I love that we got to see Peter go through the journey of truly discovering who he is & how to use his powers responsibly without having to see his origins, all through the amazing action sequences & classic Spiderman scenes, to seeing him struggle to balance superhero life with high school. Even though this is the 6th Spiderman movie in recent years, not having to go through Peter’s origins was very refreshing and allowed for the movie to center more on him establishing himself. I really appreciated that the plot of the movie was kind of simple in that it didn’t focus too much on contributing to the overarching plot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but rather kept the story contained, revolving around the characters and elements relevant to THIS story on it’s own.

In my opinion, the inclusion of Iron Man was just the right amount & done perfectly; he was like a father-figure to Peter, & Peter was a son-figure to him, but it was;t done in a cheesy way, it was just perfect for both characters, worked really well; it was so heartwarming & fun at the same time. For the first time in a LONG time, Marvel got the comedy right with this move. I was genuinely surprised about this because most of the jokes were actually funny & felt natural & not forced like the recent Marvel movies.

Honestly there were so many twists & turns in this movie that I didn’t see coming, it felt like such a fun adventure that we went on with Spidey & I enjoyed every second of it.

As for the side characters, I didn’t really like Ned, I liked Zendaya’s character but wanted her to have a bigger role more screen time & be a closer friend to Peter than she was. I didn’t really like Liz because she felt like the typical girl in a superhero movie & didn’t really enjoy seeing her on screen. I also really appreciated the movie had a lot of diversity & that everyone looked their age!

I was actually surprised that I liked the villain in the movie, Vulture was the perfect choice & was portrayed perfectly. I hope Marvel continues on this path to fix their villain problem.

I was also quite impressed with the soundtrack in the movie as well, the songs were perfectly chosen & perfectly used.

I really liked that the movie felt very fun, young & modern, but not too modern that it would be cringe-worthy & not too young that it felt cheesy or like a typical teen movie. Usually I’d be more into darker & more serious superhero movies but I think it was done in such a great way. The movie definitely has a John Hughes//80s teen movie vibe was such a perfect element that could only work this well with Spiderman. I think this is definitely a movie teenagers in the future will look back to & say “gosh movies were great in that time”.

However, I do have to admit that the continuity errors did annoy me, and some plot points did feel forced. I thought it was unfortunate that there was nothing special about the cinematography in the movie. Even though it was a really good movie, I also think that Marvel didn’t take any risks with it and played it safe.

I have to say one of the things that made me really love this movie is that to me it just felt so felt real & genuine; it felt true to the comics, was done just right, & leaves you wanting more! I left the cinema feeling a buzz. Spiderman Homecoming has reignited my love for the MCU.

9/10

The following paragraph is the extremely spoilery/fangirling section of the review.

I have to admit I didn’t see the Vulture being Liz’s father twist, but now that i let it sink it in, it kinda feels “meh” and not that interesting of a twist.

I LOVED the Captain America videos. They were hilarious and perfect, and definitely one of my favorite things about the movie.

No one can understand the happiness I felt seeing Tony happy again with Pepper. FINALLY! YES! Tony deserves all the happiness in the world I’m so happy that he’s happy. Also, how awesome was the Iron Spider suit?! I kinda expected MJ tbh but I was still surprised.

Seriously though, that was unexpected!

This movie really is an intense thrill-ride both in the feelings and the action. The space battles are truly memorable, with the beginning battle on Hoth and the Millennium Falcon dodging asteroids while escaping The Empire, and it only gets better in the lightsaber fights and the suspenseful scenes. But this doesn’t diminish the impact the characters make or how much their personalities are fleshed out. In fact they are the ones that make the action so good because of how much I cared about them.

I really enjoyed this movie, from start to finish, though I’m concerned if that also has to do with how positive everyone is about it. I have yet to see someone bad mouth this film, it’s one of those rare titles that gets almost no hate whatsoever. And I’m worried I might’ve gotten swept by the tide of praise towards it. Don’t get me wrong though, it earns this praise. It’s an excellent title that leaves you wanting for more, and I really can’t wait to see the next one. Bring on Episode VI!

And now, if you excuse me, I need to subject myself to a paternity test. Seriously, if a guy with an evil voice and his face covered claims he’s your father, you better get a paternity test.

For the love of God, please go see Wonder Woman. Immediately.


I have literally no criticisms of it whatsoever. It was basically flawless. It’s a fantastic film that pretty much destroys the patriarchy in 2 hours.


I honestly was in tears not because of something sad or emotional, but because of how insanely gorgeous the battle sequences were. This is a woman fighting men- and only men- with usually nothing but her shield and her lasso, yet completely kicking their asses. That mixed with the beautiful score and the fucking fantastic cinematography actually made me cry like a baby.


I’m so happy that we finally have a female superhero movie directed by a women. It was everything I could have ever hoped for and more. And tbh, it’s now my favourite superhero movie. So I don’t care if you dislike the DCEU or if you’re the world’s biggest Marvel Stan- please, please, PLEASE do yourself a favour and go see this movie. Right now.

A very short Spoiler-Free MLP Movie review

Just got back from the movie, I might write a longer review later, but for now I just want to say that My Little Pony: The Movie is all of the best elements of the series wrapped up into a neat hour and a half long package. The music and songs are fantastic, the story is super well done, and the animation is freaking gorgeous! This is a movie that needs to be seen on the big screen to really appreciate it. I Very heavily recommend it, go see it in the theaters as soon as you can.

Now if you excuse me, I’m going to go buy the soundtrack so I can listen to it on repeat.

Headcannons for the boys when Netflix started trending

I’m gonna rant real quick idk wtf happened but apparently this didn’t post last night so Here It Is Now


Darry:
-I think we all know it took some persuasion from Pony to invest in an account but after a while he gave in and got the up to four screens at a time pack

-Was highkey pissed when all the boys started freeloading off of it

-He’s all comfy in bed at like 9:30 getting ready to watch OISNB and he gets the message on his tv telling him that too many people are watching at once
-He checks who’s using HIS account

-He picks up his old ass phone (idk but it’s pink and has the coiled wire the bell phones)

-“GOD DAMN IT, STEVE! I JUST WANTED TO WATCH ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK IN PEACE AND I GET MY SNACK READY JUST FOR ME TO SEE YOU’RE PLAYING THREE DIFFERENT THINGS AT ONCE?”

- He’s all causal eating popcorn “Listen, Darry. They just put Moana as an option and then I saw that they have Finding Dory too and I don’t have time to watch them separately so-”

-“STEVE!”

-“PS Baby Dory is a-dor-a-ble. Totally deserved more screen time.”

-“STEVEN RANDLE!“

-“Although…I do like Ellen Degeneres’ performance…I find it quite modern and realistic.”

-“JUST TURN ONE OFF SO I CAN WATCH MY SHOW. IVE BEEN WAITING ALL DAY, PLEASE. IM NOT GOING TO WORK JUST TO PAY FOR YOU TO STOP ME FROM GETTING MY FIX OF CRAZY EYES!”

-“Dar, chill it’s like, what? Twelve dollars a month”

-“eleven ninety-nine.”

- “Wait…why are you watching Orange is the New Black?”

-“you know what…forget it. ENJOY YOUR FREELOADING!” He slams the phone so quick. He doesn’t ask about the last show

-Darry hates Piper, thinks she’s a total bitch

-He watches all the trending shows or the unpopular documentaries there’s no in between

-He’s a HuGe fan of Stranger Things

-Watches Friday Night Lights thinking it’ll remind him of his high school days

-He threatens to cancel the subscription when the boys piss him off

-it’s such a powerful threat that it has never gotten to the point where he actually had to do it, they cut the shit immediately

-legitimately how he gets the boys to get their shit together

Ponyboy:
-He convinced Darry by telling him that it would cost less than going to the movies all the time and a lot safer

-He’s the one constantly reminding everyone that it’s illegal to use their account because they’re cheating the company

-They all look at other with serious faces then turn back to Pony and laugh their asses off because the law has never stopped them before

-It makes Johnny feel bad but he needs his daily fix of One Tree Hill so he got over it

-The one watching The Great British Baking Show because the American version isn’t there but he finds the accents soothing

-He gets frustrated because he’ll think he knows what they’re making but it’s just a word used America that turns out to be a different thing in the U.K. (Stuff like Biscuits)

-tbh doesn’t know what they’re talking about half the time…that or has never heard of what they’re making in his entire young life

-He has the masked icon as his “who’s watching” profile picture

-He somehow managed to convince Darry to get the four screen plan but it was never so that the other guys could use too it was just because he wanted the higher HD quality they didn’t offer in the other plans

-If he watches something he’s ashamed of, knowing everyone has access to his history, he’ll go delete it

-Its like the My Little Pony marathons never happened

Sodapop:
-The one who gave the rest of the gang the username and password

-Worst mistake ever because now Dallas has Darry’s credit card information

-He doesn’t watch a lot of Netflix he mostly only went to movies to make Pony happy he only really enjoyed a few

-His attention span is just too short he can’t sit still to watch a movie for an hour or two

-Despite that, he can binge shows if he wants to

-If he’s sad he’ll watch Clueless and quotes the shit out of it

-Honestly Soda is the type to watch anything from a kids movie to a documentary on GMO foods like he only uses Netflix when he has nothing else to do

-To him it’s just one of those apps you don’t want to delete because you might need it but you never really use it

-His icon is the penguin

-He wishes they had a blue penguin

-but they don’t so he settles for the orange one

-he’s called the company multiple times to complain he’s waiting for them to call back

Two-bit:
-Fought Pony the first couple of days

-“SERIOUSLY? YOU WANT TO TAKE UP A SCREEN SO THAT I CANT WATCH MY OWN NETFLIX BUT LAST WEEK YOU COULDNT TAKE ME TO THE MOVIES?? YOU DIDNT EVEN HAVE TO STAY YOU COULD’VE WALKED AROUND THE MALL!!”

-“Listen, PoNyBoNeR. NOBODY and I mean NOBODY watches movies on Netflix it’s all about binging Baby Daddy, my friend.”

-“WEVE HAD THE ACCOUNT FOR A WEEK NOW YOURE SUDDENLY THE NETFLIX MASTER? WE HAVE SEVEN PEOPLE ON THIS ACCOUNT RIGHT NOW!”

-He ignores that last comment and answers the question, “Yes. And I say movies suck.”

-“DUDE the reviews for Wonder Woman were crazy I wanted to see it.”

-“Yeah, like I want to spend my precious time watching a lil twerp watch a chick flick.”

-Truth is he already went to see it five times

-Actually watches every show out there but mostly comedies

-Rewatches Friends all the time

-He’s never actually watched a movie tho

-He’s like Soda he can’t sit still long enough

-He wouldn’t have a problem buying his own account if he had to but using The Curtis’ is much more fun

-He had the free trial for a month but he canceled his subscription when it was over like he does with every other free trial

Dally:
-Only uses the account to watch porn in good quality

-That’s literally it I’m serious he doesn’t care for tv shows or movies it doesn’t have any other use to him

-Well he’s waiting for a good investment to come along and then he’s swiping that credit card info so
quick

-He doesn’t use it for show watching purposes but he
does fuck around with profile names and changes the pictures to piss Soda off mostly

-He changes the penguin to the Panda and it is a problem because Soda likes penguins and Pandas just aren’t the same

Johnny: 
-He watches the trendy shows and movies sometimes

-He takes Pony’s recommendations to heart because Pony loves this kinda thing so he figures Pony must know what he’s talking about

-He really likes Once Upon A Time

-And Raising Hope

-And literally any show that surrounds a group of friends because he relates to them for obvious reasons

-Okay but Gossip Girl is his shit

-The last profile has his name on it but the rest of boys share it

-Obsessed with Riverdale

-Pony didn’t fight with Johnny about using Netflix because he would tag along to movies before they got an account



Steve:
-Always pushed Darry to sign up for Hulu instead because they update faster and it’s the same price for no commercials as the 4 screen plan

-Helps Dally mess up the names

-Shamelessly watches whatever he wants

-Toddlers and Tiaras? Sure.

-My Little Pony? Yep.

-Cupcakes Wars? Hell yeah!

-Just no OITNB because that shit gets too crazy for him (RIP Dylan)

-Watches New Girl like it’s his religion

- He watched Family Guy and American Dad in the actual order they came out except for the first few seasons bc the quality/art style sucked

- He’s the type of person who need need needs to have something to snack on while he’s watching a show

-like he’ll plan it out or just save his food until he watches his show

-Laughed at Pony for spending all his time watching movies but now he never leaves his house because he’s binging shows

-They had the same conversation as the one with Two except Steve watched Wonder Woman seven times and once was with Sodapop who made him swear not to tell Pony

-But he’s a bitch so he exposed him when Soda refused to admit that Rainbow Dash is better than Pinky Pie

-Pony flipped

-Then Two came forward and it was a huge mess



This is for @maxisprettygay and @matt-dillon-trash
