Whut.

It's literally the same thing except with better animation. What they did for the first two movies is just went over the original series with a coat of polish.

I'd say they differ in other ways, at least in length (sans OPs/EDs, first movie: c. 120 min to adapt c. 185 min of original series; second movie: c. 100 min to adapt c. 90 min), but I'm really just splitting hairs with that. My reaction is probably just due to familiarity with the original series more than anything.

I recently watched Dragon Ball Z: God and God when I found out that it's actually a part of the Dragon Ball canon. It's enjoyable overall and not filled with as many plot holes and stupid character decisions as the later parts of Dragon Ball Z, though they somehow made the characters' power even more ridiculous than it already was (and widened the gap between strong and "weak" characters quite a lot).

Watched Madoka Rebellion, which was really good. For the first half I sort of half-figured what was going on, but then the second half happened, the reaction to which was generally "OHHHH..."
And then it ended on a rather, um, interesting note.

The ending was so neat. Just Homura basically saying
"Screw your god shit Madoka I want you back on earth", and Homura gets what Homura wants~

There's particularly the bit right at the end, after Homura re-(re-re-)makes the world, where Madoka seems just about to figure out something's not right and go all goddess mode, but then Homura pretty much goes "nope". Like it went "Here comes Godoka to fix everything!... okay maybe not"

Saw Transcendence with my dad a few weeks ago. It was pretty interesting, though parts of it could be conveyed better, especially the end, which almost lost me at first. Though I did enjoy it mainly because I love thinking about those sci-fi "what if" scenarios.

Oh man, I completely forgot the Madoka movies existed! I really need to view them somehow!

It's honestly just a really elaborate way to destroy that fella in the middle of the table, haha. Also an excuse to have a fun song in the movie.

Counterpoint!

I liked it. This is how you do a Judge Dredd film. Wish the makers could get to make more.

Saw How To Train Your Cat Slug Muffin Cow Fox Dragon 2. Spoilers in spoiler so hey.

First off OH MY GODS THE TEXTURE. With being able to see INDIVIDUAL SNOW FLAKES ON THE BEARDS. And every single SCALE rendered in loving detail. Just, oh my god they went so overboard on the texture and it's just glorious how much attention is paid to it throughout the movie.
So the thing that I think the director was pissed about was that Hiccup's mother was in the trailers for the movie. Like, I heard the team on HTTYD 2 was actually telling people to avoid the trailers because they were mad that that detail was included. Trailers handled by a completely different entity than the studio making the movie apparently. It's pretty sad because it was INDEED a pretty important little detail and plot twist. Really sad when trailers give out the fun stuff, and it's happening more and more often where they give too much away.

So speaking of Hiccup's mother though she was pretty cool. Her first appearance was a highlight of the movie for me because she's so mysterious and it's such a cool scene. Her movements are really interesting and I think they really were mindful of trying to put into her movements the fact that she moves less like a human and more like something else entirely just because of how much time she's spent away from her own kind. Which is a cool detail to throw in.
When the movie was done I was kinda surprised, there is a TON of action and a TON of battle sequences in this thing that go on for so long. So when it's finally done you realize you've been sitting there for an hour and change when it's felt like much shorter.

The humor was pretty alright, the music was pretty swell and there were a lot of really touching scenes. Just all around a pretty decent flick, though perhaps not as strong as the original but that's alright, since you come into the theater with expectations and also already knowing the score I'd imagine it's hard to make a better sequel in most cases.

I watched The Fly. So sexim/stereotypes, much gross. I get that it's old, but damn is it onedimensional. It does have a bit of the "oh no technology created by man but it bring bad things, we should careful with advancedness" moral, which was special at the time I guess, but other than that the plot does NOTHING. I guess the gross is kinda entertaining.

I also watched The Thing. Which is much, much, much, much, much, much better. There isn't a single female character, which is like "wow the sexism is so strong with this one, it doesn't even have room to be destructive on women". I can't help but notice these things with old movies. At least the plot goes places and is actually interesting. And the horror part is also really well done. It's not just gross, it's actually scary.

...also 2001 Space Odyssey. I was on a classic sci-fi streak. Very sexist too and super typical "perfect American lifestyle" in the part where humans are relevant. The monkey and acid trip parts were pretty enchanting though.

I watched Bruno.

You know, I heard a lot of people talking about how it's downright offensive to the gay community, but I think those people are completely missing the extra layer of satire that's on the whole movie. He's basically being a caricature of what the anti-gay community thinks gay people are like, and by extent, he's making the anti-gay community become caricatures of themselves. He's really kind of a genius with the way he manages to make people say the worst things they possibly could to show first-hand how stupid they are, and his improvisational skills are really amazing. I think it's weird that Borat got way better reviews than Bruno. I mean, I liked Borat as well but all that says to me is that there were a lot of people that only like Borat because he did silly voices and didn't fit in and those same people watched Bruno and didn't find the same thing so they didn't like it. The movies were really similar, but one was dealing with racism and one was dealing with homophobia.

I'm curious to hear thoughts of other people who saw it.

Rented the Robocop reboot. The plot's kind of lackluster but at least it looked pretty. I have a soft spot for cyberpunk and robots, so at least it didn't disappoint on that level.

Today, I saw Frozen. It was a good Disney movie. Animation was nice and I liked the characters and the songs.

That is a great way to start telling others about a movie, so

I was kinda avoiding using that meme though, since I don't really watch NC anymore.

I saw We're The Millers today. I liked it more than I thought I would. Usually I don't like Jennifer Aniston.

I saw The Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday. I liked it. It was different.

I saw two trailers before the movie that I liked the look of. TMNT and Dracula Untold. Could be interesting.
