The Wind Rises: The Re(al)-view

Source: http://moviefail.com/
Caproni: Airplanes are beautiful, cursed dreams, waiting for the sky to swallow them up.
The Wind Rises is not just a brilliant animated film, it has to be one of the finest dramas ever made. Eager to to see the film, since the moment I saw the trailer, the film completely blew me away, delightfully I might add. My anticipation had been building up for 9 months, so when I finally got the DVD, I took my time to bask in the euphoria of experiencing genius animator, Hayao Miyazaki's final film, savouring every single moment  ... even the credits!

The Expendables 3: The Re(al)-veiw

Source: http://wegeekgirls.com/
Barney Ross: Galgo, get out of the seat, Christmas is coming!
Galgo: But it's only June.
The Expendables is based on a simple premise; bring together a bunch of old tough guys (some of whom have amassed an impressive amount of action movie cred), with a script filled with humour and good old-school action - you know, blowing up stuff, wicked gun fights and awesome hand to hand combat that makes all feel nostalgic of the '80s & '90s action films. And it worked for the first two, the third ... not so much.

10 Fun Facts About Hollywood Director, Michael Bay

There are very few directors out there who have what it takes to make big budget movies that viewers love irrespective of what critics have got to say. And there are even fewer, who do so consistently. This is the best description you can give Michael Bay – he doesn’t care about the opinions of critics, rather he makes movies that people are willing to pay IMAX/3D prices for. He has been the man behind the camera in all 4 Transformers films, both Bad Boys films and Pearl Harbour, amongst others.
  1. The character of Mikaela Banes (portrayed by Megan Fox) in Transformers (2007) – which he directed was named after him.
    Bad Boys
  2. In Bad Boys (1995), his directorial debut, Bay paid $25,000 (one quarter of his fee) for the climax explosion scene. The initial shot was made impossible by a rainstorm, and the production company refused to pay for another try.

Godzilla: The Re(al)-view

Joe Brody: You're not fooling anybody when you say that what happened was a "natural disaster,". You're lying! It was not an earthquake, it wasn't a typhoon! Because what's really happening is that you're hiding something out there! And it is going to send us back to the Stone Age! God help us all...
**THIS IS A MONSTER MOVIE! If you're looking for character development, I suggest you look elsewhere.**

It's the 1950's, nuclear bombs going off in the ocean, we see a huge spine in the ocean … nothing else, and then the roar/scream (or whatever you want to call it). Fast forward to 1999, the Philippines, where Japanese researcher, Ichiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and his British assistant Vivienne Graham (Sally Hawkins) inspect an excavation site which also houses a monster's skeleton and two cocoons hanging from the ceiling; except ... one has hatched and headed to the sea, leaving behind the biggest trail you can think of.
