MOVIE REVIEW: WONDER WOMAN

Sunday, July 30, 2017 Posted by Kevan Lee , , No comments


Wonder Woman was my most anticipated movie from DC, used to be Batman vs Superman but that was so bad I am trying not to remember. This is because Wonder Woman is portrayed by Gal Gadot, while she lacks the physique of the usual comic Wonder Woman, she is so fitting for the role in terms of how comfortable she playing the character, you can see it with her actions and the way she moves fluidly and also the way she speaks. 


THE GOOD

Gal Gadot is such a good actress and couple with Chris Pine they both make the perfect on-screen couple. The chemistry between them both is off the charts and we can see it trickle through the big screen and also into their tour for Wonder Woman. Aside from there, the storyline has a good pacing and the action takes a better half of the movie. The fighting scene is convincing and it ensures that you will be glued to your seats and will be constantly engaged in the scene as we can feel the strength and power she carries. 



THE BAD

Some of the parts where the CG seems to fall short, you can actually see that it is obviously CG-ed. Unlike Man of Steel, the CG work was put into good use as we can see the perfect blend of real life action and also CG. Aside from that, they are some part which could be considered as fillers, the show is pretty long thus removing those part and put it into the Blu-Ray edition of  Wonder Woman should be good. I felt they should also spend more time explaining more about her powers and also the city of Themyscira instead of rushing it off to the war area. 



CONCLUSION

Gal Gadot is such a good cast to play Wonder Woman. She fits perfectly in this role and I could not be happier that DC bounce back after their shitty BvS and also their so-so attempt on Suicide Squad. By the time this review is out, the show probably has little screening in the cinema, if you have the chance to watch it in cinema, do so, if not, still do not forget to watch it

MOVIE REVIEW: PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES

Sunday, July 09, 2017 Posted by Kevan Lee , , No comments

This is the problem of having a franchise running way too long is that you see it peaks and then flat fall directly into nothing. The sad thing is they must have paid lots of money to Johnny Deep to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow and try to revive the franchise. I will give this movie 2 out of 5 stars simply because of Johnny Depp and the cast of the Pirates are pretty good, good enough to keep me entertained for a while

THE GOOD

Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow is the only thing that is good in this movie. While most of the scenes are pretty moderate, Johnny Depp made sure that it is funny and relevant enough to still be a good scene. Other than that, the new casts of who plays Henry Turner and Carina Smyth are pretty good and the chemistry between the two characters are pretty good. The storyline is typical Pirates and it has a little mystery factor on why the dead are running around chasing Jack Sparrow but all in all, it is nothing that you don't know.

THE BAD

An absolutely predictable piece of garbage. It seems like the plot was written by a high school kid who could not decide on his life so he decided to write to different stories and combine it into one messy piece of high school novel. At this rate, most of the scenes were exaggerated and the talking scene was long and painful. Jokes were too forceful and so dumb, that makes you wonder how does pirate even actually does the raid. 

CONCLUSION

Don't even bother downloading a piece of garbage like this. They should have ended this franchise on the last one. This is becoming like Transformers and Terminator franchises, such a forceful franchise using Johnny Depp to milk every single last of the name.
