Well, it’s been about two months since my last confession, so I thought it was about time that I did another one of these here bloggy thingies, and what I thought I would do, was write a few words about some of the things that I have done and the movies that I’ve seen.
Well, mostly about the movies that I’ve seen.
Okay, only about the movies that I’ve seen.
This movie is crazy good entertainment. It has everything that you want from a summer blockbuster superhero movie. Interesting, compelling, sympathetic, funny characters, arrogant, evil, slightly tragic villains, over-the-top fighting, superb special-effects, gratuitous Hulk smashing (is a well-known fact that most summer blockbusters fail because they do not include enough Hulk), genuinely funny moments that lives in the story and are not just tacked on, and an invading alien army that just does not seem to have enough manpower to take over the entire world.
Okay, that last part might not be a good thing.
All in all, this movie works, and it works really well. Go watch it.
Cabin in the Woods:
I was given a piece of advice about this movie: “Don’t watch any trailers. Don’t read any reviews. In fact, just go watch it right now”. Well, I didn’t do that, because it wasn’t released to Danish cinema until about month later but when it came out, I went to see it and it was amazing. I will tell you something about this movie: it is a stereotypical teenage slasher/horror movie and then again, it is not. There is also a plot twist or two. Maybe three. Also: go watch it. Right now. Shoo, shoo, off you go. I promised the rest of this post will still be here when you get back.
Snow White and the Huntsman:
There should be more dwarfs in this movie.
I thought this movie was pretty funny. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a bad movie. Really, really, really bad. Also stupid, gross, incompetent and frankly awful. But I also found it entertaining. What can I say, I have bad taste in movies. I hope you took my advice to go and watch Cabin in the Woods when I told you to, now that I have just ruined all my credibility.
