Ant-Man

So, today I went to watch this movie.  I usually like to watch movie on the release day, but since I was celebrating Eid Mubarak with family, so I had to postpone the desire to go to the cinema.  Before I watch this movie, I heard some good reviews from people, but I try not to keep my expectation too high because I notice all Marvel movies have the same concept in the plot.  I think pretty much all superheroes movies are like that.  Anyway, I went to the cinema, watched it, and I must say...it's pretty good.  I enjoyed it quite a lot.  At least they don't destroy the whole city in order to save it, so that's different.  Don't get me wrong, there are still some destroying going on throughout, but...in a different way.  I like the relation from this movie to other Marvel movies mainly The Avengers and Captain America.  I like the humour as well, it's pretty funny.  In short, it's pretty simple...the storyline is straightforward, it's not too elaborated.  Which works well because making it too complicated will just make the movie either too draggy or become too much to handle.  

Scoring wise, I think it's pretty standard with pretty much other Marvel movies.  It has the same energy, which kind of make sense because all the movies are kind of related to each other, so having the scoring similar keeps the relation between the movies stronger.  I also like the intention of Scott Lang in becoming the Ant-Man for his daughter, at least it gives different values to the general feel of the movie, because it gives you different perspectives or priorities on why he took the job as Ant-Man.  I see it, as rather than doing what's right for the world, he just does it because it's what's right for his daughter.  Which is nice, makes it more personal and not too heroic.  A nice touch, no?

Anyway, it's an enjoyable experience.  I wasn't completely blown-away because like I said earlier, Marvel movies are pretty similar.  The reason I follow it is because I want to understand the whole Marvel world.  It's like a bigger scale of TV series.  You have to watch all the episodes to make more sense of what's coming next.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed the movie very much.  If I am to rate this movie from 1 to 10 with 10 being the best, I will give this movie a 7.5.  I don't know how I come up with the .5 rate but that's just how I feel it should be.  Hahahahaha.  Oh, one more thing, if you haven't watch this movie and are planning to watch it soon, there's two end-credit scene, so you will have to wait until the whole credit ends before you get to see the second end-credit scene.  It shows you about something that will lead into Captain America 3.

Long Overdue

Previously, I always write reviews on movies I just watched at the cinema...sometimes I skip one or two, but lately, I've been procrastinating on writing movie reviews to the point where it is pointless to write one anymore because it's long overdue.  Hahaha.  My bad, I watched Tomorrowland, Minions and American Heist.  And I didn't write reviews for any of them.  At first it was because I got caught up doing something else, so I didn't have the time to write anything, but after awhile, I just got lazy because it's been too long.  To compress all reviews into one post...I would say between the three movies, probably Tomorrowland is the one I prefer the most.  This doesn't necessarily means it's a really good movie, just that it's probably the best out of the three.  I won't say Tomorrowland is bad either, just that it's not satisfying enough.  I like the theories that they have, but the delivery of it is just not as good as it could've been.  It's not really something I will say for kids, because I think the plot is a little complicated and deep for kids to truly understand...so, I don't really know what's the target audience for that movie.  It's like stuck somewhere in between that it just not satisfying for the adults and at the same time a little complicated for the kids.  I watched the movie with my nieces and both of them think the movie is too complicated.  My rate for this movie from 1 to 10 with 10 being the best...probably 5/10.  The second to come out of three, will be Minions.  I like both of Despicable Me movies, but Minions are just a sad prequel.  I don't like it.  There are some funny parts...but it's just too plain.  I don't like it.  I do like the fact that one of the minions said "Terima Kasih" which is "Thank you" for Malay at the end of the movie.  But the rest of it is just...plain.  Me no likey.  Which is sad, coz Despicable Me were really creative, and good, and funny.  My rate for this me will be 4/10.  Lastly, American Heist....I confess, I watched this movie because I saw Adrian Brody and I thought this must be good.  I was so wrong.  Adrian Brody trying to be all ghetto-ish?  Just so wrong.  And just a little side note, saying the word "Fuck" in every single sentence throughout the movie will not make the movie any better.  The plot is terrible, the performance of the cast is just...poor, I don't know, it just feels off.  It's a disaster from the start, I wish I can get my money back.  My rating for this movie is probably 2.5/10.  I really don't like it at all.  So, there you go.  A long overdue movie review all bundle up in one post.  I will be watching Ant-man tomorrow...I hope I will be writing review about that movie at a more appropriate timing.  I hope.  Haha.  We'll see.
