I've just seen Baby Driver in the cinema and HO BOY! It's been a while since I last saw a REALLY good action movie that's actually memorable. It's kind like Drive but with a different genre of music and less dark.

While it does kinda fizzle out a bit at the very end (the climax feels a bit uninspired and cheap compared to the rest), it was on the whole a pretty damn solid movie.

Yeah, everything seems to go fall flat at the end, the whole choreography and effects are meh and at some points even at youtube level. Overall though it was pretty good, slow start and they could have spared us those awkward moments between Diana and Trevor.


I have watched a few newer movies recently with The Mummy and Captain Underpants being absolutely terrible. Later one especially, because the characters are all so very unlikable beginning with their basic design and constant overly smug look on their face.

Then i watched new Smurfs Movie, which was surprisingly ok, while they couldn't help themselves and threw in some modern references, the fact there is no live action mixed in is pure bliss. Gargamel is a little bit to hyper for my taste.

Lastly King Arthur was absolutely not what i was expecting and i really liked most of it. They mixed in aspects of heist movies (how its edited and how they talk) and it really works well. The "well creatures" are fun to look at and are designed pretty nice, which are in stark contrast to most of the other CGI animals and creatures who look obviously fake.

So the Netflix Death Note movie came out, and, shock of all shocks, it's pretty crap. How sad is it that this MA-rated movie is significantly dumbed down from the original manga... which was aimed at 12-year-olds? About the only value to get out of this new live action version is to laugh at how stupid the whole thing is.
This sure is a signature.

Finished it just now. Well, if you went in expecting Death Note, you'll be disappointed. If you're ok with a Final Destination-y schlocky teen horror movie, then you actually might enjoy it. I would have thought it decent on those terms if not for two things:

I watched it yesterday, and meh... it wasn't awful, but far from great. The first half of the movie was pretty bad, felt like a giant exposition dump with random scenes from the manga/anime being played out in no particular order. Maybe it's just because I've seen the anime, but everything felt so rushed, like every line of dialogue was there just so they could get to the next scene as soon as possible. I mean the movie was only ~1h30min. They could've easily invested another 30 minutes to this part of the movie.

So, today i saw the new Batman movie: Batman vs Two Face, and i have to say i was positively surprised. I thought i would hate it, because i can't really identify with the old batman, but hot damn... was pretty funny. Batman was even voiced by Adam West.

And then i had to look him up and see that it was his final role, at least it was something good.

"All anime adaptations keep on failing! We must think of something!"
"Well, the fans keep saying they're terrible because they're never faithful to the original..."
"Faithful! That's it! We're going to give to our main character GIANT CGI ANIME EYES!"
"Uh, ok, when they say faithful I don't think they mean..."
"Giant. CGI. Anime eyes."
