I work, I watch movies and I parent. That’s it.
I’m so happy that Peter Dinklage can now play a badass in a movie without a hint of irony, and the audience is completely on board.
Meanwhile, I was also completely on board with the climax of this movie being Dinklage enacting unspeakable horrors on Rosamund Pike’s character. I can’t say this is a better movie without that torture porn, but I can also accept the more conventional route they chose to go.
A special shout out to score composed by Marc Canham…the music wasn’t obtrusive, but it brought an energetic tone and elevated many scenes.
Paul Walker: Gone
Dwayne Johnson: Gone
Jason Statham: Gone
Sung Kang (Han): Appearance makes you realize that nothing in this shit matters.
Gal Gadot: Based on the above, I assume she will be back for F10.
Kurt Russell: Everytime someone said ‘Mr. Nobody’ I cringed. Such a stupid name!
Charlize Theron: 2 day shoot in a small see through cell with no toilet.
John Cena: Not Dwayne Johnson
The ‘Tokyo Drift Crew’: Apparently hooked on crack for the last 15…
I always knew the revisit couldn’t compare to my original theatrical viewing, where my popcorn nibbling literally sounded like the Gremlins had joined the screening.
Still, the hook is a good one, the set ups are Jurassic Park level intense and the monsters are surprisingly unique (even though at their most ferocious they resemble hard-core pornography).
