Movies You Watched Recently And Felt Strongly About

The Expendables

Take a few action stars who have seen better days, add a beautiful Latina, throw in lots of explosions, and blend in some clever wise cracks, and you have a nice warm fuzzy throw back to the 80s where men were men and bleed, swore and kills loads of enemies whilst barely breaking a sweat....

Think Rambo, who could take on the entire Russian army, give him some equally deadly pals, and let them create mayhem whilst saving the girl and trading punches, jokes and bullets on a little Island in the Gulf and you will want the lot to be back.

And get cameos from the man who perfected the art of saying "I'll be back" - he gets his just dues in a line "he wants to be president" and you finally see some stars who you may have longed to see together in a single movie for the longest time.

This is no Oscar material, but Stallone brings out the best bits from these daddy warriors, and give them the license to kill and to thrill and make the audience laugh with them too. Testosterone overflows from everyone one of these oldies, but the have me and I am sure many more longing for "Expendables II".

Plot: 3/5

Action 4/5

Chick Factor: 3/5

I reckon its worth a rental or more.

Dragon Hunters - Blu Ray review - English DTS HD MA 5.1

Not often do you see an animation that does not come from Pixar do well and this one is not even American. The French it seems are perfectly capable of some rather good animation with equally good stories.

I had a chance to buy this over the weekend and I agree, its easy to dismiss this as a kiddie thing, but its pretty entertaining. Although the main plot is pretty standard, the characters are nicely fleshed out, the humor is good and when you add in the action sequences, plus the sound, its a keeper. An unlikely motley crew of dragon hunters, consisting of a pig-tailed behemoth of a man Lian Chu, his side-kick Gwizdo, and a furry dog-like mutt, plus the intrepid niece of the Lord who sent them forth. The ensuing adventures form the story as they overcome obstacles to face the World Gobbler.

Plot: 3/5

Chick factor - nil

Action: now this is where things get exciting. Literally....there is very exciting bass, filling in the moments of suspense and of course when the action begins, the bass is sub-sonic. You will need something which goes down to SVS sort of levels to enjoy this French hit. the bass is used not only to the explosions but also to widen the sound stage and the rear channels are constantly used, either to add ambience, or to give bite to the action, making the dragons come from all direction, the flying bats encircle you and basically create a cohesive soundfield. Very nice 4.5 / 5

See it, buy it.

Silence of the lambs US release

This show is all about the plot great acting and a superb mood. It defined the whole Cannibal genre, and these days, people will still shudder when they see Anthony - its his whole facial expression, and in particular, his eyes and the benign look which strikes fear in your heart.

PQ is above average for a show which is almost 20 years old but there was no special remastering.

AQ is mainly frontal and does not envelop you like modern thrillers.

The action comes in spurts, but it relies less on shock tactics, and instead the whole mood is dark and yet it draws you in, in a way that cheap slasher movies cannot.

Chick factor: well Jody Foster looks good still but in 1991, she was hot. Plus the fact that she was a wonderful actress, you have the makings of a real diva. At the time, she campaigned actively for this role, even after winning for "The Accused".

Seeing an engaging and lovely Jody Foster sparring with the awesome Anthony Hopkins who really looks menacing was sufficient to make up for the prosiac PQ and AQ. They deserved all the accolades.

PQ 3/5

AQ 2/5

Plot 4.5/5

Worth a rental and you may end up keeping it.

The Mission (1986) Blu Ray review

This movie starts off with a poignant scene where a Jesuit priest plunges to his death, and you can hear the rousing soundtrack from Ennio Morricone in the background. With such a start, it is hard to go wrong and the movie does not disappoint. it is a movie in which you will need to return for repeat viewing and as the first viewing can be quite painful given the ending. However when you appreciate the other scenes, and the awesome soundtrack, it grows more on you and moves you to no end.

The music here is distinctive and you will have no trouble recognising the oboe notes. Jeremy Irons gives the performance of his life and Robert De Niro does better here, than even Godfather. The supporting actors including some notable names like Liam Neeson and they all add to a performance which I feel deserved an Academy award.

Plot 4.8/5

There isn't too much action, and yet the few scenes are quite gripping. The vintage of the film shows itself here, whilst the soundtrack is pretty awesome, there is precious little sound effects and it is almost entirely limited to the front soundscape.

As for the picture, it is pretty decent for a movie which has been around for more than 25 years. Its no demo disc, but the details are better than some others.

PQ: 3/5

AQ: 2.5/5

Should you buy it, well I would and I did once the disc was released. I remember almost standing up to clap and weep when the first notes of the oboe floated around the cinema.

Recommended for the plot and music.

For the younger ones, this is one movie which makes you smile, laugh and cry, all in a single movie and the soundtrack is quite simply one of the best, ever. Enuf said.

For those of us who saw it in the cinema, this is worth the wait for the Hi-Def version.

Worth a watch, definitely worth owning.

The Social Network

Wow! Thought that The Town was the best film I'd seen at the cinema this year, but I think that this one just tops it.

Fantastic look at arrogant, but brilliant computer geek Mark Zuckerberg, who founded facebook and went on to be the youngest billionaire in history despite being sued by fellow Harvard students and his co-founder/best friend.

Mesmerising from start to finish.

Should make a good blu ray too, with plenty of music and dotted with boisterous party scenes :)

The Other Guys

Some movies give you plenty of fun, action, and tumbles and add to the whole buddy cop genre. This is not one of them. It was quite painful to watch, and now I know why Will Ferrell justifies his label as most overpaid actor in Hollywood right now.

The duo would love to take over from The Rock and Samuel Jackson as the leading cops in a delinquent police department bent on body counts and car crashes, but they look like a gay couple and the movie cannot decide if it is an action, comedy or a serious movie. Eva Mendes just adds to a boob count and you don't really get the plot either.

Plot: 1/5

Action: some action scenes, but fans will be in a coma or wondering what's happening and not be too impressed 2/5

Chick factor: Eve Mendes does add some hotness, but in the end, she is poorly used and came on just to collect her paycheck. 2/5

I would not even recommend this as a rental.

This is a twin review of two recent movies with a rather similar concept. It reminds me of the time, Eraser and Mission Impossible came out also together, and Thin Red Line and Saving Private Ryan too.

First the similarities:

Both shows have a similar premise: they are about a beautiful woman who falls for a man of her dreams, who is charming, handsome and utterly irresistible. little does she know what he does and that where the trouble begins. Then mayhem ensues, as the explosions, bullets and bombs go off. Now this being a romantic action comedy sort of genre, you know that they will survive the bullets, the trials and tribulations of the relationship (well at least for the duration of the movie) and live happily ever after in supreme love for one another.

Killers

This is fronted by two reasonably likable stars - Aston Kutcher and Katherine Heigl, and they seem to try, but Aston is so wooden, that he should be afraid of and deserves to be eaten alive by termites. Heigl is hot, but has only one kind of expression and she is only good for the dumb blond role, which she has milked to the extreme in the past few roles, almost like a younger Jennifer Anniston. Both have limited acting chops and they show it clearly. The addition of Tom Selleck does not add much and you don't really know why people are trying to kill Aston unless they also disagree with the quality of his acting.

Plot: 2/5

Action 2/5 - there are some explosions, but the whole connect of the show is so disjointed that you can't really appreciate the action.

Chick factor - well Heigl is still hot, but it gets a little tiring 3.5

I would consider this for rental only if all the releases were taken for the week.

Knight and Day

Tom Cruise does a secret agent role once more, and his female lead here is Cameron Diaz, who tries to add her own ditzy flavor to this alternate spin on the spy romantic couple movie. She does bring some charm, but being almost a decade older than when she did Something about Mary and also Mask, an older lady doing the whole dumb blond thing is harder to swallow. So Killers takes one point for this.

But the older couple of Tom and Cameron definitely have more chemistry and their experience helps pull this movie one up on the Killers. The action is still outrageous but in a way you can stomach and they still manage to make it look a little effortless.

The plot is equally thin, but a little more believable. 3/5

Action is fair 3/5

Chick factor is lacking though: 2/5

So Knight and Day take the tie breaker, but with not much to spare. But if I had to take one of the two shows home for the weekend, it would be the latter... and it would not be a great weekend...

The Sand Pebbles - BR review DTS-MA 5.1 Tier 1

For a movie made more than 30 years ago, I did not really have too many expectations, and it was on the merit of the fact that this was Steve McQueen's sole Oscar effort that made me give this a try.

Most who are above 30 will know him and perhaps this movie, it is set in the 1920s, during a rather tumultuous time in China. You get romance, action, and a geopolitical historical theme, all put together by a wonderful director in Robert Wise, and sterling performances by Steve and Candice, as well as the other members. A young David Attenborough (the man who in his later years is better known for his narrations of many wonderful BBC series such as Life or Earth) plus a whole host of actors make this a good movie even so many years after its production.

But it is the picture quality and even more surprisingly the audio quality which makes this a keeper. The sound engineers worked overtime on this Blu Ray version to make a disc which can almost compete with modern movies and certainly puts many other movies of its era to shame. Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack is well spaced out, and the surround channels are kept active and certainly the LFE also gets a decent workout.

Recommended.

PQ: 3.5/5

AQ 4/5

Plot: 4/5

Chick Factor: 3.5/5

Stool Pidgeon – review

If you are a fan of the intense scenes, emotions conveyed in movies like Election, Beast Stalker, then this is the kind of movie for you.

There is a certain level of despair and inevitability, a dark side of emotions which is showcased in this show, which attracts a certain audience, but will alienate those looking for processed happy ending sort of shows. It is not a real actioner, nor a cop story, but a show which is almost documentary or matter of fact in the way it follows the lives of a depressed and stressed cop, a desperate wheelman, a robber and his woman, and how it all ends for them.

Not your usual plot: 4/5

Chick Factor: Kwai Lun-Mei is a new Taiwanese star and she looks good and acts well 3.5/5

Action: it comes in spurts and is rather violent, and there is none of the romantic gangster type roles popular in the 90s with Chow Yun Fatt or Ekin Cheng. 3/5

It is worth a watch, but like durians, there are sharp edges which will prick your emotions, and will polarise you into liking or hating it.

The Return of Chen Zhen ...movie review

Donnie Yen is a great action stuntman, with moves which are breathtaking, and gravity defying, but he is no great actor and or director. His latest movie reeks of the typical Hong Kong mentality of milking a genre to its death, and speaks volume of the dearth of orginal material, a disease which has been plaguing HKG cinema for more than a decade.

Here is another - (third?) remake of this story, and apart from a change in attire, the fight scenes are similar to the previous productions, and in fact, there is a lack of really cool fight scenes in this show. Perhaps Donnie wants to showcase more of his acting chops, but he should stick to his forte, as the movie moves along rather slowly when there isn't any fighting.

The plot is even more tedious, adding a Eupopean dimension, a spy element, and a less than interesting love story element - Donnie is no Tony Leung I am afriad.

Plot: 2/5

Action: what good is an action kung fu flick without kungfu ? 2/5

Chick factor: some eye candy, but little real hotness 2.5/5

I reckon it is only worth a rental on a rather slow day...

Tron Legacy in 3D - movie review

When Tron was first released in the early 80s, it was not really a financial success, but the CGI and the concept proved to be cutting edge and ever since, it has had a cult following and since I had not had a chance to see it, why not begin afresh with the new iteration of it, and for a CGI filled show, why not go all the way and see it in 3D? The show was indeed a 3D fest: D = demolitions, delicious babes and of course Daft Punk!

Tron L will not be an Oscar winner, even for creative CGI use or for its 3D reproduction, and it certainly won't win for acting, but you get a nice experience of a sci-fi action movie, with some babes in tight spandex thrown in and its all accompanied by some nice punk-techno music with a nice beat. If all this sounds too low brow or if Gone With the Wind is your cup of tea, then skip this. Much has also been said of the excessive use of 3D and milking the audience for the extra dollars when it adds little to the experience. Well the 3D does work here, simply because it is a CGI show primarily, and the show actually starts with a caveat that "certain segments were filmed in 2D". This is clever as the real world is in 2D and appears flat was compare to the world of Tron in 3D.

The show borrows from real classics like Blade Runner in its outlook and of course it's predecessor, Tron. There is a low of low light which will test your display's ability to show contrast and dark areas. The story isn't too unfamiliar. The original Flynn is trapped inside the Tron world and his son comes to get him. Throw in a little love interest in the form of a shapely Cora, who bears a little resemble in look and concept to Trinity from Matrix, add spunk to her and give the movie lots of action scenes with plenty of explosions and make sure the music is loud and bombastic.

This won't threaten big hits like Star Trek, Star Wars or other definitive sci-fi movies who have deftly combined action, science fiction and even comedy plus a little romance to a wonderful mix, but it will entertain and with the action and cool soundtrack, you will consider taking home the Blu Ray disc when it comes out.

Plot: 3/5

Action: not bad, although the bass isn't the lowest, the surround field isn't too bad.

3D - The speakers in J8 were not the best, with rattling heard in the right side of the speaker array, but the 3D effect was well done enough although a notch lower than Up or Avatar.

Chick Factor: like Matrix, the director has found that shapely women in tight Spandex works...

I enjoyed it enough and will consider it as a rental at least and even consider owning this and the original Tron as a boxset when it is released.

I agree with this as i saw it yesterday but one thing i did notice it was hard to hear them talk as they altered there voices in tron... so bassy i couldnt catch what was being said sometimes...

although a great action flick as i grew up with these sort of movies... i can even remember going to parklea markets in blacktown which were the drive-ins at that time to watch star wars..lol memories

The Pacific - BR review DTS-MA 5.1

Saving Private Ryan (SPR) was one of the definite movies of the 90s and one of the best war movies of all time, and in 2001 the Band of Brothers followed the success of Saving Private Ryan with a wonderful mini-series about the brave men of East Company as their fought their way through Europe. Tom Hanks did not rest on his laurels, and in 2007, made The Pacific. By then, there were quite a few more war movies, not only in English, but also in other languages. Terms like "gritty", "raw realism" and "faded colors" were often used to describe these shows. So how can this one do when thrown in amongst the rest?

First let me tell you what impressed me first. The action was breath-taking and exhilarating, and you felt like you were in with the First Marines as they did battle in unpronounceable islands in the Pacific. The depiction of the dangers, the agony and perils mixed in with the fear felt genuine, and intense. Knowing that everyone will benchmark this show against his other two creations meant a pressure to excel. The Pacific succeeds in the depiction of battle and the sound effects are massive, impressive and devastating.

What it falls on is that it tries too hard. This mini-series tries to offer drama, romance, sort of like We Were Once Soldiers, where the show alternates between battles and the home front. Here you can a couple of episodes of raw battle to begin with, then two episodes which could have come out of a soap opera, with plenty of skin, sex scenes and love making thrown in. You get more "Face time",closeups, and dramatic moments which seemed to have been forced in to space out the action and add humanity where it is not really needed or helpful to the plot. Somehow, I feel it detracts from the movie and these attempts at humanising the soldiers did not do well and seem contrived and artificial. The show is most entertaining when it sticks to the what it is about - war. Those battle scenes are some of the best filmed and acted.

No one will fault the action, and thank goodness the director stayed away from the faded colours popularized by SPR. It also eschewed the jerky hand cam style used to great annoyance in the Bourne series and many others subsequently. Instead the show is resplendent in color, detail and showcases the best of modern film cinematography, with details like the leather belts on the soldiers, the grime looking almost 3D and the dried blood all realistically and carefully portrayed.

The show differs from SPR in following three individual soldiers from the First Marines, as they battle in the South Pacific, and how their lives, their attitudes and morals are altered in the course of this arena of war.

Plot: 3/5

Chick Factor: well there was a lot of sex and skin, which in my opinion was unnecessary (you could edit out 2 hours from the show with no loss) 3/5

Action: 5/5 the surround effects, bass and soundstage were all reference and finally beats SPR and BOB

Should you own it / rent / forget it - well I have two sets, and the poignant emotions it brings out is reason enough, the demo quality action scenes will keep you coming back to re-watch those battle scenes for many more times.

Footnote:

I did not mind most of the little artistic licenses taken, but they did poorly in showing the heroics of John Basilone the Congressional Medal of Honor winner, who fought so heroically and single-handed in Iwo Jima. I quote Wiki:

"

Iwo Jima

John Basilone's headstone in Arlington National Cemetery

After his request to return to the fleet was approved, he was assigned to Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 27th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division during the invasion of Iwo Jima. On February 19, 1945, he was serving as a machine gun section leader in action against Japanese forces on Red Beach II. During the battle, the Japanese concentrated their fire at the incoming Americans from heavily fortified blockhouses staged throughout the island. With his unit pinned down, Basilone made his way around the side of the Japanese positions until he was directly on top of the blockhouse. He then attacked with grenades and demolitions, single-handedly destroying the entire strongpoint and its defending garrison. He then fought his way toward Airfield Number 1 and aided an American tank that was trapped in an enemy mine field under intense mortar and artillery barrages. He guided the heavy vehicle over the hazardous terrain to safety, despite heavy weapons fire from the Japanese. As he moved along the edge of the airfield, he was killed by Japanese mortar shrapnel. His actions helped Marines penetrate the Japanese defense and get off the landing beach during the critical early stages of the invasion. For his valor during the battle of Iwo Jima, he was posthumously approved for the Marine Corps' second-highest decoration for bravery, the Navy Cross.

Cliffhanger

it was 1993, Sly was in top shape, and was rolling out hit after hit. This was perhaps his greatest movie before he slid into obscurity (well that is until Rambo, Rocky V and Expendables revived his career).

Before Tom Cruise showed off his moves pretending to rock climb in Mission Impossible II, Stallone showed the world his abilities, strength and the awesome sights of the Italian Alps in a movie which was successful for action fans, climbers and even Stallone skeptics. The plot isn't that complicated, a bunch of criminals led brilliantly by the wonderfully talented John Lithgow who outshines himself as a master villain, steals the money from a plane but the plane crashes and they need the Rocky Mountains Rescue climbers Rooker and Stallone to find it.

The plot is a new twist on the good guys versus bad, with some mind games, mixed in with good action and the backdrop of the Alps (standing in for the Rockies) certainly helped. Stallone played the roles that suit him best, little acting chops needed, but plenty of action and let the other actors use their thespian skills to cover up for his more wooden acting, then let the director Renny Harlin (fresh from Die Hard 2) show off all the action sequences.

Action: 4/5

Chick Factor: Janine Turner is the love interest, and does her bit to spice up the movie without looking ditzy 3/5

The film shows its age, the picture quality is a little faded, and many shots are less sharp or pristine. PQ 3/5

AQ: no such trouble for the sound though, the DTS-MA 5.1 track is awesome, and has good bass and LFE during explosions, of which there are plenty, and the deep bass resounds from all 5 speakers. Dialogue is reasonably clear, but the soundscape and the use of surrounds is on par with a movie from the 21st century and makes this quite the sonic treat.

Some trivia:

Most of the stunts were real and Stallone did many of the climbing scenes himself. it had the most expensive stunt as well (USD 1 mil) for the wire climb between two planes (no safety ropes so the insurance was sky high) and Stallone is actually afraid of heights.

Should you buy / rent / avoid it?

I reckon the sound effects alone make this a demo worthy buy, and the decent plot, with the excellent performances by lead actors (dare I say it, Stallone was good in this despite a dearth of facial expressions).

Once Upon A Time (2008)

The Koreans make some cute and whacky stuff as well as some rather melodramatic shows, and this is definitely in the former camp, with the Korean kind of humor, a little of the the three Stooges, plus some bits borrowed from a few classic heist stories, flavored with a bit of the "Thieves Like Us" genre, with some Spy vs Spy bits and finally a decent dollop of romance thrown in too.

This all could backfire, but the Koreans pulled it off to make a rather enjoyable hour plus worth of distraction, and if you are a big Korean movie fan, esp of the genre like the Good, the Bad and the Weird sort, this will suit you to a tee. Forgot those tear jerkers where everyone dies, and sit back and enjoy the twists and turns as thieves, singers and patriots all try to steal this jewel known as the "Light of the East". Set in the end days of WWII in Japan occupied Korea, it probably brought a lot of joy to Korean viewers, but for the non partisan audience, the humor, action and wit plus the bits of action thrown in will give you plenty to smile about.

Plot: 4/5

Action: 4/5

Chick factor: Korea manages to churn out these awesome beauties, and the femme fatale in this show (Lee Bo-young) does heat up the room whenever she appears: 4/5

So, a rental or keeper?

I reckon if the genre is right, this movie will give you more than one viewing, so buy it....

Movie Review

State of Play (DTS-MA 5.1) - Tier1

When you put an ensemble cast together, it can be successful or backfire badly, depending not only on a good script, but also the C word - chemistry. In such a suspense thriller about the inner workings of the US Congress and how corruption and power intermix, the way the protagonists interact and play off each each other, make for a wonderful state of play (pun intended and literal too).

Russel Crowe uses his brooding nature to interplay with the fresh and beautiful Rachel McAdams, who uses her looks, energy and a real freshman outlook as an excellent counterfoil to Russell. Helen Mirren is also perfectly cast, and this is another C word - Casting of all the actors could not be better and each looks excellent in their roles. Ben Affleck proves he is no pretty boy only, yet is able to use his matinee idol good looks to portray a crooked Congressman very well.

The plot works and the twists come fast and furious. The ending is also unexpected and this film will withstand a couple of viewings at least to understand the nuances. 4/5

But Home Theatre fans may ponder on whether it is worth it to invest in the Blu Ray disc for what some might term a "talkie". Also there has been a trend of some awful actioners having superb sound effects and bass. Fear not, the sound engineers on this disc did not go on a vacation, and they worked hard to convey the suspense, the emotions and also the sounds of Washington DC on the disc. Bass is effectively employed to add tension, and there are also flyovers of helicopters and a smattering of gun-shots to keep the bass-heads content. In my opinion, this works very well, and is a more effective use of the subwoofer than merely using it for the big explosions and all the boom!

Action 3/5

Sound 3.5/5

Chick Factor: Having first come across Rachel McAdams in Red Eye, she exhibits spunk as well as charm, a real good next door girl with the hotness of a first line Hollywood actress. 4/5

So should you buy the disc, rent or avoid this?

I reckon it is worth a watch at least and the sound effects makes it a decent demo disc for those who are not convinced that atmospherics are just as fun as big explosions.
