Movie Review: How To Train Your Dragon 2

Paired with the first one, this is turning out to become one of my favorite animated movie series. How To Train Your Dragon 2 is simply gorgeous to look at. The cinematography, the detail in the scenes, and the sense of scale all make for a fantastic movie-watching experience. The story, and the drama, seemContinue reading “Movie Review: How To Train Your Dragon 2”

Movie Review: Maleficent

It’s not that I didn’t like the movie, it’s just that it wasn’t what I really was hoping this movie would be. I wanted far more evil. I wanted something far more dark and brooding.

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

I felt that it was even one of the better films of the entire series. Three reasons: The characters: Wow, far better acting andContinue reading “Movie Review: Godzilla (2014)”

Movie Review: Ocean Heaven

I think he did very well with the character. The story, and some of the issues it brings toContinue reading “Movie Review: Ocean Heaven”

Movie Review: The Warrior

I finally got around to watching “The Warrior” (also known as “Musa” and “Musa: The Warrior”). It’s been so long since I’ve had a chance to watch any Korean movies. This one was a good reminder of why I love them so much. I love the sheer emotion and suffering that most Korean movies buildContinue reading “Movie Review: The Warrior”
