Opinion:

I didn’t really know what to expect when watching this movie for the first time, I definitely was not let down with what I watched. I will say this movie definitely isn’t for everybody. The movie has a lot of pop art and video game style visuals which wouldn’t meet everybody’s ideals. I personally like all of the overly animated fight scenes and think they are rather funny to watch.
I feel like it’s a very interesting movie to watch for a particular audience however it can become slightly boring to watch with the movie being almost 2 hours long and the fight scenes being so regular and similar to each other.
However, i was slightly disappointed with the ending that they chose to go with. it could definitely be improved. 

I would still recommend giving it a watch as its a really easy movie to watch and is rather funny, id recommend grabbing some popcorn and kicking back.


Personal Rating: 6.0

Sherlock, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, since 2010

Summary (no spoiler): A modern adaptation of Sir Conan Doyle’s novels (a summary too short, too blurry, that’s true but that’s a beginning).

Why you should watch it: 

Let’s say the argument “It’s Sherlock Holmes!” is not enough. What’s left? First, an original and efficient product: only three episodes per season, but each episode is like a short movie (circa 1h30). Each episode has a high level of quality, with special effects, inventions or modernisation that creates a unique Sherlock without betraying the original character. The dialogs are absolutely genius and the actors have the proper charisma to lead the viewer into this story. There are not too many episodes: one could fear that there’d be an investigation in each episode and, very slowly, you’d see something bigger. Here, this is not the case: you are rapidly put into Sherlock’s flat and you see nearly immediately the “big thing”… even if you won’t understand it right now. The quality of this show is particularly exceptional, and, as a huge reader of Conan Doyle, I found in this adaptation a perfect Holmes, modern, nearly autistic and sociopath: what Sherlock Holmes seems to be in the novels. There is no break, the series does not cut the action to take a breath, it just leads the viewer into itself. This series of the BBC is one of the most, in my opinion, achieved creations and even when you already watch it, you want to do it again, because of the picture, because of the dialogs, because of the actors etc., etc., etc. The modern British flegme and humour meets one of the most iconic character: it could have been a disaster… It’s a success! (Plus, if you begin it now, you’ll be less frustrated than those who waited for years before having the following episodes… hoping there is a fifth season). 

When you should watch it: 

To binge-watch or not to binge-watch, that is the question. There is no bad time for Sherlock BUT there is, I think, a bad mind state. This is not a series you can watch only with one eye, doing something else or half-sleeping. When you watch it, do it ENTIRELY. You’ll miss too many things and there are too little episodes to allow such a disgrace. This series deserves your attention: give it what it wants… You won’t be disappointed.

USMC Corporal William ‘Kyle’ Carpenter’s Medal of Honor ceremony scheduled for 19 JUN.

Lance Cpls. Kyle Carpenter (left) and Nicholas Eufrazio are pictured in Marjah, Afghanistan during their 2010 deployment.

Summary of Action: Lance Corporal William Kyle Carpenter is enthusiastically recommended for the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry at the risk of his life while serving as a squad automatic rifleman, Company F, 2d Battalion, 9th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 1, I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) for actions against enemy forces on 21 November 2010 in Marjah district, Helmand province, Afghanistan.

Lance Corporal Carpenter’s squad was tasked with establishing Patrol Base Dakota in a small village in the Karez-e Saydi area of Marjah on 19 November 2010. Traveling by foot, Lance Corporal Carpenter’s squad was accompanied by a team of engineers, an interpreter, and Afghan National Army personnel when they set out to establish Patrol Base Dakota.

On the morning of 20 November 2010, the squad was attacked by small-arms fire, sniper fire, grenades, and rockets while providing perimeter security and filling sandbags to fortify their positions at Patrol Base Dakota. During this time, Lance Corporal Carpenter was occupying Post 2 which was located on the top of an Afghan storage shed made of mud, straw and small timbers in the southwest corner of the compound when it was struck by recoilless rifle fire. Lance Corporal Carpenter received no injuries during this incident, but two of his fellow Marines were evacuated from wounds received during the attack. Due to the damages sustained to the roof of Post 2, Lance Corporal Carpenter moved within the storage shed located below Post 2 requiring him to utilize an opening in the southeast corner of the wall for observation. The use of the opening had severely reduced the squad’s capability to observe the enemy forces’ movement outside of the patrol base to the south due to its close proximity to the ground.

On the morning of 21 November 2010, Lance Corporal Carpenter and Lance Corporal Nicholas Eufrazio were tasked with providing security for Patrol Base Dakota from an observation post identified as Post 1. Post 1 was located in the northeastern corner of the patrol base on the roof of the patrol’s Command Operations Center. It had limited cover and concealment and was built up with the use of sandbags three to four high in a circular design. While on post, Lance Corporal Carpenter was manning a M240B and, together with Lance Corporal Eufrazio, was assigned to observe the north, northwest, and northeast sectors of Patrol Base Dakota.

At approximately 0900, Lance Corporal Eufrazio and Lance Corporal Carpenter received sporadic small-arms fire on their position causing them to lower their profile by lying on their backs in order to gain concealment while trying to obtain the locations of enemy positions. Unable to obtain the position of the enemy due to the thick vegetation and structures that surrounded them, Lance Corporal Carpenter’s squad leader loaned him his M4 service rifle in order to maintain a lower profile while scanning for enemy forces.

At approximately 1000, Patrol Base Dakota was attacked again by enemy forces through the use of sporadic small arms fire. While attempting to locate their positions, enemy forces had maneuvered in close through the use of the walls of the compound across the street to the east. Once in position, three grenades were thrown over the east compound wall in consecutive order. The first grenade landed in the center of the compound and rolled toward the west entry point of the Patrol Base prior to detonation, injuring one Afghan National Army soldier. The second grenade landed near Post 2, without detonation. The final grenade landed in close proximity to him and Lance Corporal Eufrazio on the rooftop observation post.

Realizing the danger that he and Lance Corporal Eufrazio were in, Lance Corporal Carpenter positioned himself between the grenade and his fellow Marine in an attempt to shield Lance Corporal Eufrazio from its blast. Due to Lance Corporal Carpenter’s actions, the majority of the grenade blast was deflected down rather than up causing a cone shaped hole to be blown down through the ceiling of the command operations center. The blast sent debris directly onto the platoon’s corpsman that was lying directly below the observation post where Lance Corporal Eufrazio and Lance Corporal Carpenter were posted. Although Lance Corporal Eufrazio received a shrapnel injury to the head from the grenade, Lance Corporal Carpenter’s body absorbed a majority of the resulting explosion.

Lance Corporal Carpenter was severely wounded and immediately evacuated due to a depressed skull fracture requiring brain surgery, multiple facial fractures, a third of his lower jaw missing, a collapsed right lung, and multiple fragment injuries to both of his upper and lower extremities.

Lance Corporal Carpenter’s extraordinary demonstration of bravery, decisiveness, and loyalty to his fellow Marine embody the Marine Corps’ values of honor, courage and commitment. His total disregard for his own personal safety distinguishes his conduct above and beyond the call of duty in the face of certain death. Due to Lance Corporal Carpenter’s fearless devotion to duty and heroic actions, he is strongly recommended for the Medal of Honor.
