A little while ago I was playing the game Destiny in which I managed to complete the jumping puzzle (climbing the mountain) of Felwinter Peak social space to acquire what they call a dormant siva. I got up pretty high and needed to get back down! It’s a jump and a half! I did it and decided to create a video of the event for YouTube, it’s my first edited movie from a PS4 and it wasn’t surprisingly that hard to create.
I used the iMovie maker on my MacBook, stripped out a lot of unwanted parts of the movie leaving a very short and straight to the point video. If I feel anything fun or funny happens to me in Destiny next time I play I am sure I will try and make another movie. But for now, enjoy.
Very often trailers give away too much information and this is another case. In fact I would have to say that the trailer for Suicide Squad gave away some of the best jokes in the film. It overcooked a film before I even saw the dam thing. So this is why I probably feel a little let down.
After Superman vs Batman you expect darker elements, the gothic, the twisted and the dam right crazy. But by today standards this feels tame in many regards.
After the introduction of each character and hearing a bit about their backstory the film throws you in head first into an urban battle with what looks like more undead! The camera does like Margot Robbie aka Harley Quinn. Is it me or do they keep focusing on her ass. And a very nice one at that.
As for the all the other characters they just seem to fade in and out, leaving only Will Smith playing Deadshot who holds the film and the crew together. The only time you get down to a human level is when they are all in a bar for a break. Was it needed? They didn’t seem to work that hard for it!
So the bad guys are the good guys, the good guys are the evil guys and the really evil guys, well… They seem to have about 10 to 15 minutes of screen time and then they are killed off. I enjoyed parts but felt that they could of done a lot better job with the material they had. The script writers should be put in the facility where the crooks came out of.
Visually the film was impressive, I enjoyed each music track they implemented and they were well placed. I have to give credit to the makeup and costume department these people know what they are doing. Just a shame the direction of the film couldn’t have been better. Jared Leto was a good fit for the Joker, I might of preferred a film base around him. However for what we have I will give the film 2.5 out of 5
Another character comes out of the Marvel Universe and this time they call him Deadpool. A twisted child-like character bent, corrupted, twisted by another. Sometimes trailers say far too much and it could be the case for the Deadpool trailer which I watched last year. The movie was very well put together, but seemed to be missing parts too it. Even the character turns to the cinema goers to tell his story which if you read any of the comics you would know he is also his own monolog.
The film starts with what you saw in the trailer but expanded, I am not sure it flowed that well for photography, as you seemed to jump from one camera angle to another.
Then you get his back story via a retelling. A hunter-hitman, ex-army guy falls for a girl who is very much a matching personality. Then after he finds out that he is riddled with cancer another guy comes along to offer a cure to save him. Wolverines healing gene or is it the X-Gene, o wait, its X-Men again.
So a brutal treatment regime takes place and thus we have our new super-hero or anti-hero. This film to me feels like a mash up of 300, Kick-Ass in the Marvel outfit.
I did laugh at much of the comedy, although offensive I didn’t really mind as I have seen much worse on the silver screen these days.
In comes the action, slashing, shooting, dead guys, a bullet to the head. Some very corny lines from Colossus and roll credits.
That felt like a quick movie, I didn’t look at my watch once so I must have enjoyed it. Not as much as Iron Man or Guardians of the Galaxy, but not that far behind.

The film starts off with three deaths in a comical fashion which really wasn’t that funny where all the victims are smiling. The first thing that came to mind is the similarity with Batman, death by smiling! There seemed to be an incoherent start to the movie and an over use of comedy that really made it unfunny.
The next moment seemed to be a Matrix style battle which really wasn’t that well choreographed. Followed by a homage to Men in Black, during this scene they mentioned copyright infringement and a few Jet Li titles.
By this point the movie felt like a mismatch of ideas, but after that, the plot did get better and one or two of the sequences were not that bad. There seemed to be a lot of elements using concepts straight out of Stephen Chow’s play-book and they really didn’t implement them that well.
There didn’t seem to be much strength in the acting from anybody in this film. Nobody stood out and other than the girls being very fit! There seemed a very lack of effort with the whole flick.
There were no extras on the DVD, although it’s for sale in Tesco for only £3.00 I wouldn’t bother getting it!

I saw the film advertised on the SyFy channel recently and was amazed at how stupid it was, some really dodgy acting, some terrible CGI at times. And what is more baffling is how it’s suddenly raining, then suddenly dry. How one minute the same road that is flooded doesn’t have a single drop of rain on it, then reverts back to being flooded! O, and why they are trying to escape Los Angeles they have time to rescue a whole school bus of kids, who are raised to a bridge, vanish on the bridge and reappear only to disappear again!
These guys then made a load of bombs in what seems in no time at all, take a light weight helicopter next to a tornado which in all truth should of torn the dam copter to shreds. Then one of the girls get eaten by a shark only to come back to life after being pulled from it’s belly!
This has to go straight into my number one slot of the most incoherent film I’ve ever seen. With some poor dialogue, really bad puns and a heavy load of under acting this makes for an unemotional wreck. I am amazed they made a second one, which I shall probably watch also.

I started watching this film on the TV, I can’t believe how much Owen Wilson and Eddie Murphy did my head in! It was horrible! None of the jokes really made me laugh. Couldn’t watch anymore past the car case!
