I got around to watching Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse.

When teenager Miles Morales is bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, he develops powers identical to Spider-Man. But soon destiny has other plans for him when he meets others that share his powers as he unexpectedly comes face to face with the Kingpin who has found a way to open doors to other worlds.

A brave move from Marvel to open up the Spider-Verse works well and gives us this charming film that proves you don't just have to be Peter Parker to get the job done.

I give this a generous 4 stars.

I just saw this and came to post it here as well! Even after all the hype it still exceeded my expectations - great movie!

Films I have seen in the past few weeks.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

I guess we all know that story. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, this one was however received less positive then his previous movies. While this movie is far from bad, it's definitely over the top. Even though that was probably the point I do have to say that Branagh's directing is a little on the frantic side. It's like he's all over the place affraid he might drop the ball or something. This movie is stuffed with suspense and tension and can be really fast-paced sometimes without giving enough breathing space in between scenes. But if you can look past that, you might be in for a fun and bombastic ride.

This was also one of the first horror movies I had seen at the age of 10 or 11. It never bothered me or gave me nightmares. It's nostalgia for me.

Also a great score by Patrick Doyle, if not his best. It's big, it's gothic, it's bombastic and it's heavy. Just listen to The Creation.

The movie: 3,5 stars.
The score: 4,5 stars.

Keep an eye out for John Cleese in a supporting role.

Dead Again.

Another Branagh film. Emma Thompson plays a woman suffering from amnesia and ends up in a orphanage. The priest who runs it calls Mike Church to help the woman out. With the help of a hypnotist they bring the woman back to a past life in which she was married and living in the orphanage which was the house that belonged to a famous German composer.

Telling more would ruin the movie. You really gotta see this one with a partner if you're looking for romance, suspense and mystery. 4 stars for both movie and score.

Jeepers Creepers.

Trish and Darry are on their way home, driving on the countryside bickering about all sorts of stuff when they're suddenly attacked by a rusty old truck. A little shaken they try to forget the incident but when they pass an old church they see the truck parked there and see the driver dumping something in a pipe that is wrapped in a sheet. Suddenly becoming witnesses the driver of the truck starts to hunt them down. After running them off the road, the driver takes an interest in something they have and begins to hunt them down and he's prepared to pull all the plugs to get it.

This movie is one of the few movies that is genuinly scary. At the time it was new and refreshing and gave some life back to the genre. 3 massive stars.

Jeepers Creepers 2.

In it's sequel the Creeper, as it is called, sets his sights on a schoolbus full of kids to feast upon. Stranded on a deserted road the kids are forced to rely on each other to hold off the Creeper's attacks. Meanwhile father Jack Taggert who lost his youngest son to the hands of the Creeper is seeking revenge and tries to track down the schoolbus.

This one is a little more spectacular then the first when it comes to effects. This one also deserves 3 stars.

Jeepers Creepers 3.

This sequel also serves as a prequel to the second movie. Picking up directly after the events of the first movie. The cops are investigating the Creeper's truck which appears to be a death trap on wheels. Meanwhile a woman called Gaylen is having visions about her son who got killed by the Creeper who warns her the Creeper is returning to get something back that is buried on her property. The towns sheriff and his sergeant are hunting the Creeper with a small team but the local teens are far from safe from the demon-like Creeper.

A movie that took nearly 15 years to make but unfortunately had suffered from long delays due to a lot of circumstances, including the past of the director and a low budget. The movie has some cheap effects because of the low budget, something the previous two didn't had. Also a weird choice was that most of the movie is set during the day, while it would be more effective at night, just as the previous two. It might have held covering up the low budget a bit. While it was great to finally have the Creeper back (a worthy character and can become as iconic as other monsters) played by the original actor I'm going to give this one a lower score of 2 stars. Jeepers Creepers can be so much bigger and better and one of the scarier characters of recent times if it would get the right treatment and budget.

I heard there is a script for a fourth movie. I still hope he gets it and that it doesn't last 15 years. The Creeper is a very formidable character to simply throw away.

Snowpiercer.

I'll let trailer speak for itself.



And lastly Creed II.

Adonis Creed manages to become the world's best boxer, much like his father Apollo Creed and his father's friend Rocky Balboa once did in their time. 30 years have passed now ever since Apollo had died in the ring and Rocky avenged his friend and country in Russia against Ivan Drago. After Drago's defeat he fell from grace, abandoned by his country and wife. Now living in the Ukraine, Drago's son Victor is following his father's footsteps as a boxer and history seems to be repeating itself when a fight is set between Victor and Adonis Creed. While Rocky has his reservations about the fight, he opts out of it and a rift emerges between the two. But since most of these movies is about preserverance and hanging on to each other Rocky trains Adonis one more time to take on Creed's most powerful opponent yet.

Creed II hardly offers anything new. Pretty much everything this movie offers has been done before in the Rocky movies. That kind of makes it a, been there done that sort of thing, yet it feels very refreshing and with the return of Ivan Drago, new fans of Creed might be inclined to watch Rocky IV and maybe find their way to the other movies as well. 3,5 stars though for being so enjoyable.

I've actually watched a few movies on Netflix. I watched The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (which I haven't finished yet), and I also watched Pearl Harbor last night.

I will admit, I miss Rachel Weisz as Evelyn in the last Mummy movie. She was fantastic in the first two. The other actress just isn't the same. sad.gif

From what I've heard her agent didn't want her to appear in the third movie after she won an Oscar that's why they replaced her with Maria Bello. He probably thought an Oscar-winning actress don't belong in an adventure movie like that.

Also Rick's new friend is played by a Game of Thrones actor. Actually, the third movie is definitely not bad and I keep thinking a fourth movie would still have worked. Unfortunately they rebooted it for the dark universe and failed miserably.

Last night I have seen Lawrence of Arabia.

Again one of those massive classics that made me go: yeah, maybe not. At an astounding length of 217 minutes: 3 hours and 37 minutes, the movie started of really good. I think this is where Stephen Sommers might have had some inspiration on his desert shots in The Mummy. It was also shot in Morocco. The desert shots, the close ups of the sun and the group trekking through the desert on camels are fascinating. But sometimes I did feel the movie was dragging on. Then again I wasn't impressed with The Bridge On The River Kwai at first either until I saw him the second time. But Lawrence is over an hour longer. Maybe a second viewing might help. I also have Dr. Zhivago here, another David Lean 3 hour long epic, which I think I'll experience it the same as the other two and probably will need a second viewing.

These old movies are some of the best you'll ever see though because they actually recreate historical moments without the use of CGI or other kinds of special effects. I would still give it 3 stars though.

Tomb of the Dragon King was pretty good. You can tell they took some inspiration from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon as far as cinematography. With stars like Michelle Yeoh and Jet Li I'm not surprised. Jet Li is one of my favorite martial artists in movies, next to Cynthia Rothrock. I love Rothrock... she can't act her way out of a paper bag, but nobody watches her for her acting chops. XD

I just got home from watching Aquaman. Movie was pretty good! Despite being the usual predictable James Wan movie, I enjoyed it a lot! And not just because Jason Momoa was running around without a shirt on for parts of the movie. biggrin.gif wub.gif

Visual effect were amazing, and the dialogue/acting was terrific! My sister said it reminded her of Sword and the Stone, and I didn't catch that until she said something.

Still, pretty cool!

Next up... Captain Marvel and Avengers: End Game. biggrin.gif

Latest movie seen at the movies: Escape Room.

The title speaks for itself and reminds of movies like Saw and Cube. More Cube then Saw actually and the movie is PG-13 but it was the genre I was looking for. So a group of six people receives invitations to participate in an Escape Room game. If they win they receive 10.000 dollars. Only the escape rooms turn out to be real-life death traps.

This would've also made a real nice Mac-thriller. I remember reboot Mac not finding his way out his escape room in that episode but original Mac would gladly take on the challenge. Of course he wouldn't do it for the money. But yes, I can see Mac leading a bunch of people out of a massive death trap building.

Anyway this was an entertaining thriller. I went in without knowing too much about the movie and I needed a thriller-fix which I got. It was a great 100 minutes and it's nothing graphic. The movie is PG-13 and it's more about suspense then gore. Need a fun movie, I recommend this one.

The Langoliers.

Actually it's tv-miniseries based on the King's book or said otherwise a 3 hour long movie. American Pride Flight 29 takes off from LAX to Boston and ten passengers falls asleep during the flight. When the blind girl Dinah asks for a glass of water from her aunt there is no response and she starts to panic. The nine other passengers join her and they conclude the plane is completely empty and it's flying on automatic pilot. When they land the whole world seems deserted but Dinah is hearing a terrible sound coming from the east.

This was also one of the first of King's adaptations I saw over and over again, though it's not very spectacular, the mood and mystery that surrounds it makes up a big deal. There are a couple of familiar faces there though like David Morse who plays Captain Brian Engle, Bronson Pinchot (yes that is Serge from Beverly Hills Cop) who plays the deranged, on the verge of a terrible break down, Craig Toomy. Dean Stockwell plays Bob Jenkins, a mystery writer. Mark Lindsay Chapman plays Nick Hopewell. He's pretty much the leader of the group and somewhat hotheaded. And there is also Christopher Collet who played Galahad/the groom in Good Knight MacGyver plays a major role in this mini-series as Albert Kaussner. A redhaired goggled teenage violin player. Interestingly he plays a teenager at the age of 27. That makes him about 23 when he was Galahad wearing a white wig.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III.

A movie I had seen as a kid but never again after the dvd came into our lives. So it was at least 20 years ago since I've seen this movie. Definitely a kids movie. It was also the only one I have ever seen of the original three movies. It's not bad but it's kind of thin. Then again the 2014 movie was not great either, I even missed it's sequel. Still I think this could be big if done right.

Because of the Oscars, they aired "La La Land" as a FreeTV premiere here.

I don't even remember if I've ever seen a trailer for it; I just knew the cinematic posters and the reviews and of course the hubbubb of the movie at the Oscars last year (or was it already 2 years?).

I liked it more than I thought it would; but I like Emma Stone as an actress anyway. I also thought it was nice they didn't cast professional singers and dancers for the main stars; it felt very natural.

That's always a sign you might be in trouble if your dashboard is on fire...

Gods of Egypt.

A film that has a lot of potential when it comes it's concept: Egyptology. Unfortunately this movie suffered from a lot of backlash, including of getting accused of whitewashing by Hollywood. Yes, the leads were Nicolai Coster-Waldau and Gerard Butler with Geoffrey Rush in a supporting role. But I don't see the problem here. First and foremost this movie is a fantasy film not a historical movie. Last time I looked Arnold Vosloo wasn't Egyptian either when he played Imhotep in The Mummy films. The movie suffered a lot of critique before it was even released and Alexander Proyas and Lionsgate apologised several times. Like I said it's a fantasy film not an historical epic, so a little creative freedom is permitted here in my opinion. Ever since the movie's release nothing has been heard from Proyas again so far. It was his first movie in seven years since Knowing. Yet they were aiming for sequels or a trilogy but it probably won't happen now, though it would be welcome and I'm real curious if Proyas would ever direct another movie. I think mythology movies would be great fun. Gods of Egypt, Gods of Greece, Gods of Scandinavia... you name it. I think there is a lot of material there that could be used to make movies from. So it can take some load off the superhero films and reboots and remakes.

I give Gods of Egypt, 3 stars.

The Brood.

Frank Carveth is in the middle of messed up divorced fighting over the custody of his daughter while he's soon-to-be ex-wife Nola is in a therapy with an unconventional psychiatrist. When Frank discovers injuries on his daughter he suspects Nola of abusing her and that it's because of the psychiatrists therapy techniques. During this, several brutal murders start happening around Frank and he is faced with the physical form of Nola's rage.

An older movie dating back to 1979 but clearly hasn't lost any of it's power. The movie was based on David Cronenberg's own divorce, so it makes this film quite personal. Again if you know Cronenberg, you know what to expect from him. Though most horror is rather subtle with exception of two real horrifying moments. While no immediate familiar faces Frank is played by Art Hindle (Dave from the Last Stand). Again one of this moments I went: "Dave???" And it appeared I was right. And it appears Art Hindle is still very active. He already finished 3 movies set to be released this year and has 6 other projects running in post-production. Another 3 of which are also set to be released this year.

The Brood gets a solid 3,5 stars from me. Though the story might seem a little confusing at first, it surely delivers in the end.

I think the poison that was used was applied to this knife, passed to the mutton when it was cut and then activated by the wine. - MacGyver.

Alita: Battle Angel.

On the Scrap Yard Doc Ido finds the remains of a former robotic warrior who fought in the war of The Fall. He reconstructs her and names her Alita to his deceased daughter because she reminds him of her. Alita comes to and begins the discover the world around her, behaving like a normal teenager and goes through several emotions, including falling in love. When she follows Ido one night after suspecting him of being a killer a fight erupts in which she shows massive fighting skills. Knowing that she is not just a girl, she sets out to find herself and becomes a bounty hunter to take on dangerous criminals.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and written by James Cameron, Alita: Battle Angel delivers a great spectacle. I always thought Rodriguez and Cameron was a strange combination but it delivers in more ways then I thought. This is definitely a should-see movie. 4 stars.

The Best Of Me.

From the author of The Notebook this is another one of his adaptations. Dawson and Amanda were high school sweethearts. 20 years later (21, but who's counting) they get reunited after a mutual friend passes away. Dawson declares his love once again but Amanda turns him down because she's married now and has children. Dawson has his own problems with his estranged family.

A movie panned by critics and I can't see why. This movie is as good as The Notebook. I wouldn't say better but as good. I didn't know what to expect since I only knew the movie by title but this I did not expect. 3,5 stars.

A Perfect World.

Butch and Terry escapes from prison and kidnaps a young boy during their escape. Both men don't like each other and when Terry tries to hurt the boy Butch protects him. They form some sort of friendship and hit the road after that. Texas Ranger Red (Clint Eastwood) is set on the case and goes on pursuit with his team to retrieve the boy back.

A nice crime drama directed by Eastwood himself starring himself of course, Kevin Costner and Laura Dern. Keep an eye out for Bruce McGill in a small cameo (without mustache). Interestingly one of the characters name is Bobby Lee. But spelled differently. 3 stars.

And this might be the largest movie collection in the world, 15,000 titles worth of 300,000 dollars. According the man only Martin Scorsese might have a larger collection. Mine's currently at 907 titles.
