A weird mix of "Groundhog Day" meets ""Battle: LA", meets.... "The Matrix"??
Who knew that would be that AWESOME!!
Doug Liman handles action quite well, but also humor. I thoroughly enjoyed how this film balanced action and comedy, making it one of the most entertaining films of 2014!
Didn't like the ending a 100%, but... the rest was F-U-N!
I had one major problem with "Annabelle".
You see, the film goes off with a very promising start, where a lot of the tension is built on things we don't get to see. But the problem is that the film is directed by a fellow who constantly goes like
"OKAY! Are you ready to be scared?? We are going to startle you now, but we'll prepare you first with a loooooot of suspenseful music and noise, and OH don't worry,…
"Aliens" has a rare quality. A VERY rare quality.
It is a rare thing to experience a good sequel, yet near impossible to stumble upon a sequel that exceeds its predecessor.
"Aliens" is damn near to accomplish just that.
James Cameron has a knack of creating legendary sequals, doesn't he? And with "Aliens" he shows just how to continue the story of a cult classic and making a new classic on his own.
Whereas Ridley managed to scare the crap…
First time I saw this film, I was nearly thirty. Up until then I had always thought Rambo was this typical mainstream, all-muscles-no-brain kind of explosion-action flick, where Stallone shirtless showed all kinds of muscles while ripping throats open and killing whole armies alone with his bare hands.
It is safe to say I was surprised.
Mainly by the depth in the Rambo character. That guy has issues, and Stallone really proved himself as an actor portraying this.
