My Favorite Scenes: X-Men Days of Future Past – Quicksilver Kitchen Scene

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a great saturday! This time on “My Favorite Scenes” I will share the amazing scene from 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” that features Speedy Gonzales himself, Quicksilver (Evan Peters). If you have not seen the movie yet you are missing out on not only a great movie but also the best rendition of Quicksilver we’ve gotten in any movie/cartoon ever. In this scene he and his fellow mutants try to escape the Pentagon but get attacked by security guards in the kitchen. So what happens? Quicksilver saves the day by running around and doing awesome things to the tune of “Time in a Bottle” by Jim Croce. This scene is all kinds of great and I highly recommend seeing the movie if you have not.
Enjoy!

Movie Review: The Drop (2014)

The_Drop_Movie_Wallpaper_8_vbtdr_1280x800

I am a big sucker for a good crime story. If something (movie/tv/games) with a crime story looks interesting to me. So then I found out that there was a movie that was a crime story written by Dennis Lehane, author of books like “Shutter Island” and “Mystic River”. So of course I got pretty excited. Now I have finally seen it and I am ready to talk about it.

Ladies and gents… “The Drop”.

“The Drop” is about Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) who works at a bar with his cousin Marv (James Gandolfini, R.I.P). But this isn’t a regular bar, oh no. It is a so called “Drop bar” that sort of funnels cash around to different mobsters. But one night the place gets robbed and shit starts going downhill. I thought the plot was great. The reason I didn’t say too much is because it is best experienced. It is a really good plot with a few twists here and there. There is also a sort of sub-plot on the side with Bob finding a dog in a trashcan and befriending a woman named Nadia (Noomi Rapace). And that works too, I liked it. The only problem I have with the plot is that the main stuff takes a while to get started. Not bringing the movie down too much, but it still tick’s me off a little.

The characters in this movie are well-written and spectacularly acted. Bob for instance may seem like a calm person who wouldn’t hurt a fly, but believe me when I say he got tons and tons of rage built up inside of him that you don’t wanna expeience. Tom Hardy portrays him pefectly. James Gandolfini is also great as this guy, Marv. I mean… he is James Gandolfini. Noomi Rapace is also great as this woman who Hardy’s character befriends. The characters are all great.

Even though I cannot for the life of me find the composer for the OST of the movie I can still say that I really like it. It reminds me in a lot of ways of the soundtracks by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, cold and slow. They all help build a suspenseful atmosphere in the movie that stayed with me throughout. The choices for the licensed tracks were good too.

Even though I am a big fan of Dennis Lehane I was a little worried going into the movie. Last time I saw a movie with a screenplay by an acclaimed author was when Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men) wrote the screenplay for the terrible “The Counselor”. Thankfully the screenplay and overall writing in the movie is terrific. I am going to be completely honest, everytime someone opened their mouth I was very interested. Everything they said was great. This movie was also terrifically shot. This movie is directed by Michaël R. Roskam who made the Oscar nominated foreign film “Bullhead”. Every shot looks great, the framing is great, everything relating to the direction and camera work in this movie was great.

This movie was well-received. On Rotten Tomatoes it has an 89% positive rating with a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has a score of 69/100. And on good ol’ imdb.com it has a score of 7,1/10.

“The Drop” got a good story, great characters and acting, a really good soundtrack, great camera work and a great script but takes a little while to get going. Now for my final score. My final score for “The Drop” is an 8,98/10. I highly recommend it and I do think it is worth buying.

Movie Review: Lethal Weapon (1987)

f5d97289a3ddd0a736a68f48caf2c021

Every once in a while I like to mix things up when it comes to my movie watching. For the most part I watch dramas or sci-fi with a pretty good amount of brain. But sometimes I just have to sit down and watch something with little brain and much awesome. And for that I go to 80’s and 90’s action movies. They usually have the right amount of awesome (and perhaps some cheese) that it just keeps me entertained. Today we are taking a look at one such movie… although it does have moe substance than you’d expect.

Ladies and gentlemen… “Lethal Weapon”.

This movie is set in Los Angeles and follows Detective Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) who just turned 50 (Sidenote: He is too old for this shit). He gets forced to work together with suicidal cop Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) to find out who murdered the daughter of a friend of Murtaugh’s. They also have to go stop a gang of drug smugglers led by a man named Joshua (Gary Busey). Simple premise… I love it. Action movies don’t need a lot of story since they pad it out with a bunch of cool and badass situations. “Lethal Weapon” is such a movie. I do like however that they add layers to the story with backstories to the characters which we’ll get to in 3… 2… 1…

The characters! They are all pretty great. They all have motivations for what they’re doing. Okay, fine the villain (Busey) simply does his shit to be the bad guy of the movie. But he does it so well because he is Gary Frickin’ Busey. Murtaugh is basically just a family man/cop who does his job (and is too old for this shit). But he works because he acts like a normal human being should(ish). But Riggs… Martin Fucking Riggs is awesome. First off, Gibson got great chemistry with Danny Glover and fits the character perfectly. After the death of his wife he is on the verge of suicide (but never commits said suicide). He is also awesome in a lot of scenes because he is pretty much out of his mind. He is crazy and I love that, it gives great contrast to Glover’s straight up family man. Overall the characters in the movie are great.

The soundtack is done by a nice mix of people. The score was done by Michael Kamen (Highlander, Die Hard). The saxophone part of Murtaugh’s theme was done by David Sanborn. But the most interesting part (for me at least) was who did the guitar playing for Riggs’ theme. It was none other than the one and only Eric Clapton. It all comes together for a nice action movie score.

The shots in this movie are truly great (for the time at least) and the cinematography is great. Sure, it isn’t as good as something by Roger Deakins, but it sure as hell looks great. A fun fact about this movie is that it was written by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, Iron Man 3). I don’t know why it’s fun, I just do. Also, this is technically a christmas movie since it’s set around christmas… so that’s fun. The action in the movie is also good. Good ol’ classic 80’s action.

This is a movie that has been really well-received. On Rotten Tomatoes it has an 84% rating with a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has a 67/100. Roger Ebert also seemed to like it since he gave it 4/4 stars. And on imdb.com it has a 7,6/10. “Lethal Weapon” was also nominated for 1 Oscar in the category of Best Sound.

“Lethal Weapon” is an action classic. It got a good story, good characters with perfect chemistry between Gibson and Glover, the score is great and the action is really good as well. Now for the final score. Where’s the envelope? No, Riggs… you can’t kill yourself with that… give it here! My final score for “Lethal Weapon” is a 9,65/10 which of course gives it the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”

My Favorite Scenes: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End – Hoist the Colors

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night to you people of the world! I am here to share with you another one of my favorite scenes from a movie. And what is it this time? Well this time it is the opening scene from “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End”. First I will give my quick thoughts on the movie; It is entertaining, it is worth watching if you enjoyed the first two. Now to the scene itself. It is dark, haunting and just great. Probably the best scene in the entire movie (if you ask me). You have the British people hanging people who have taken part in piracy. Not only is the cinematography great, but the mood is jsut dark and depressing, which I like. But the scene truly becomes geat and even powerful when that little kid who is about to get hung starts singing the song “Hoist the Colors”. It really helps set the mood perfectly. And then when all the people joins in it just gets amazing… and then ends in a mass hanging. I simply love this scene and think it is worth sharing because of it’s sheer impact on me.
Enjoy!

1 Year!

Hello, friends of wordpress. I am here to make one special little post. I got a notification today that on this day, 1 year ago, I created my blog. 1 year, I’ll be damned! To be completely honest I didn’t think I would be continuing blogging that long. I thought I would get bored after maybe a month or two… but here I am, 1 year later. One of the reasons that I have been along for the ride I guess is because of all you guys and your continued support. I know I am sounding incredibly cheesy and clichéd, but I want to get this out. You guys are awesome and I am hoping for an equally as awesome, if not better second year! So to celebrate this little thing I am going to later this week (or maybe next, my laziness doesn’t have a real schedule) release a very special “Top 10” on my blog. You can speculate all you want, I am not telling you until it is time. Again, thank you for the support, you people are awesome!

See ya!

Movie Review: The Lego Movie (2014)

2014-the-lego-movie-1366x768

I grew up playing a lot with lego. I didn’t always know what the hell I was doing, but I had a lot of fun. Most times I honestly improvised and built random things. One time when I was like 11 or 12 I was just bored one day and somehow managed to build a big star destoyer (Star Wars) looking thing. I was proud of it… and then a few days later it fell off the shelf and turned into a million pieces. But my childhood is not important right now! What is important is the fact that in 2014 there was an upcoming movie about Lego stuff. It seemed like an interesting cashgrab idea. To be honest I was really skeptical about it at first, but then the trailer dropped and it looked awesome. So now I am finally reviewing it. So how is it? Is it simply a boring cashgrab or is it a pretty awesome animation?

Ladies and gentlemen… “The Lego Movie”.

This movie follows Lego minifigure Emmet (Chris Pratt). He is just another guy in the crowd. But one day he happens to fall onto a “Piece of Resistance” which apparently is a sign that means he is the “Special One” who will stop the evil Lord Business (Will Ferrell) from gluing together everything in the world. But Emmet isn’t alone! He gets help from badass chick Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), pirate Metal Beard (Nick Offerman) and Old Wise guy Vitruvius (God, er I mean Morgan Freeman). At first the story only seems silly, but as it goes on it adds layers and turns out to be a pretty clever story with some genuinely heartfelt moments. I was surprised with just how clever and even thought provoking it could become. But i really liked it. The only weird thing is that there were some (in my opinion) really weird shifts of tone in the movie. Those dragged everything down a little bit, but not too much.

The characters in this movie are so unique and varied that it’s crazy. I absolutely loved it. Emmet himself is this regular type of guy who gets dragged into all these crazy adventures, so I liked the fact that Chris Pratt voiced him since he really got the sort of “Normal Guy” voice (if that makes sense). I am not going to go through with every character because that would take too long. I will however mention that I found one character surprisingly awesome; Bad Cop/Good Cop (Liam Neeson). He had awesome dialogue (like everyone else) but also really got some really good slapstick when it was needed. I was also surprised at how great Liam Neeson portrayed him in the movie. I know the guy is a great actor, but lending his voice to a kids movie… damn. Overall, all the characters were great and well-acted.

The soundtrack in this movie is pretty great. Since this movie is set a little all over the place, I was glad to hear that they could capture the feel of every location with the music. Want good Wild West music? Got it! Good action music? Boom! This movie got some great pieces of music. And I guess I have to give my two cents on the very popular song “Everything is Awesome” from the movie. It is pretty cool, actually. Not my favorite song in the whole wide world, but it was definitely good.

Since this is an animated movie I will have to talk about the animation in it’s very own segment because that’s how I roll. The animation in the movie is really great! And here is the charming thing about it: It is completely CGI but looks like stop motion animation. Everything looks like Lego, but was made in a computer… how crazy is that!? It all looks fantastic and it gives the movie some much appreciated personality. Everything looks like Lego, nothing looks like added CG, everything is Lego!

Since this is a comedy, is it funny? Yes it definitely is! the comedy is fast-paced and clever… which is why the kids won’t get it. There are a lot of jokes that they will not get, but the adults will probably laugh their asses off at. But kids will laugh at a lot of the slapstick in the movie and also look at all the pretty colors and explosions. This is also a parody of all typical “The prophecy says you are the chosen one” “No I’m not” movies and it does it gloriously. It was also fantastic to see all these characters you recognize from all over the place converge on one place and just… AWWW!

Is this movie well-received? Oh yes! On Rotten Tomatoes it has a 96% positive rating with a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it has an 83/100 rating. And on imdb.com it has a 7,9/10. The movie is also (at the time of this review) nominated for 1 Oscar in the category of Best Original Song (Everything is Awesome). What? No best animated feature nomniaton? That’s odd.

“The Lego Movie” is clever, hilarious, well-acted, beautifully animated and really charming but is dragged down a little bit by weird shifts in tone. So now I am finally gonna give you my final score. No, Vitruvius, I am over here! OVER HERE! No, not the plant! Finally, thank you! My final score for “The Lego Movie” is a 9,42/10. It is definitely worth buying!

Everything is awesome…

My Top 15 Musical Tracks from Video games

Wut wut

Hey there, my friends! I am back with another “Top Whatever” list. This time I am stepping away from movies a little. Not forever, just for this little list. Not only do I watch movies and TV, but I also play video games. And when you play video games you might sometimes encounter some great musical tracks every now and then. And that is what we are taking a look at today. Now before we officially begin we have to set up some rules.

Rule 1: Like I mentioned in my previous list, this is my list based on my opinion, so no bitching. If there is a musical track you want to share with me, please do so, I would like to see what you think.

Rule 2: Only one musical track per video game franchise. I know that might sound awfully picky, but that is how we are doing it.

Rule 3: Only tracks that were made for that game. We are not using licensed tracks in this list. Even though some video games integrated licensed tracks perfectly, those tracks are not good for this list.

Now that all of that is out of the way, let’s go!

Number 15: Murder in the Station – The Darkness 2 (2012)

A track from the excellent first person shooter game “The Darkness 2”. This track accompanies a part of the game where you as Jackie Estacado (voiced by the awesome Brian Bloom) go through a train station, killing a bunch of thugs who were sent after you to well… kill you. While this track might be generic to some people, I still think it is great.

Number 14: Overture – Red Faction: Armageddon (2011)

This track acts as sort of the main theme song of the game. If you didn’t know, “Red Faction: Armageddon” is a sort of sequel to the epic 2009 game “Red Faction: Guerrilla”. This track is dark, cold and builds up to a great conclusion. I have listened to it a ton of times and I think it is great.

Number 13: Suicide Mission – Mass Effect 2 (2010)

Now we throw in an epic orchestral piece into the mix from a great game. “Mass Effect 2” is the sequel to the critically acclaimed sci-fi RPG by Canadian developer Bioware. In this game you are putting together a team of different species and personalities to take on “The Collectors” who kidnap human colonies. And this song (mild spoiler) is played during a part of the final mission, hence the name “Suicide Mission”. This track is big, it’s epic and it got some great build up! Such a great track! Then why is it so low as 13? I just prefer the following musical tracks more than this one.

Number 12: Save theme – Resident Evil 4 (2005)

My god, I love this game so much! I am generally not a guy who loves horror games/movies/shows so much, but hot damn is this awesome! It feels like a mix of B-movie horror with B-movie action but is produced like an A-movie. I know that doesn’t make sense, but that is just how it is. This track is the song you hear when you go to a typewriter and save the game. It is a song that both makes you feel safe but also feel like there is something scary around the next corner. The track is soothing, the track is creepy, the track is great.

Number 11: Battle Theme – Final Fantasy X (2001)

Going back to the realm of RPG’s with this track from the excellent “Final Fantasy X”. I love this game. It got a great (if somewhat cheesy) story, great characters, good gameplay and of course… great music. Once again Nobuo Uematsu composed the music for a “Final Fantasy” game and once again he delivered. This track is the one you hear pretty much everytime you go into battle with regular enemies (bosses have different tunes). This track gets you pumped for the battle and makes you feel like you can take on everything! And if I ever decide to start working out in one way or another then this song will proably be part of the playlist. If it goes on for too long it might get a little repetitive, but overall it is great.

Number 10: Main theme song – Donkey Kong Country (1994)

This song is so awesome! If any person who loves video games hears this song, they automatically know where it’s from and what to do… go get bananas and start jumping on crocodiles! Wait, no… that’s a bad idea. But you get my point. This song is as the title describes it; the main theme song for “Donkey Kong Country” which came out for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). I have listened to this song so many times and every time I hear it I want to go on a big adventure, the song gives off that feeling in my opinion. I also love the game, it is awesome.

Number 9: Dr. Wily’s Castle – Megaman 2 (1988)

The “Megaman” franchise is known for being difficult. “Megaman 2” is no exception. But when you hear this awesome song during the final level of the game you don’t care, you just feel invincible and you also feel like nothing can stop you except for spikes and pitfalls. My point is, this track is badass. It also sounds like it is a rock n roll track but can’t get that sound per se because of the limitations of the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). But those limiations don’t matter when the song is awesome in 8-bit! This song is so good at getting me pumped and I absolutely love that!

Number 8: Mystic Cave Zone – Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992)

Staying in the realm of old games for a little more we have this fucking awesome song from the game “Sonic the Hedgehog 2”. While I haven’t played the game on an old cartridge, I have played it on the PS2 thing “Sonic Mega Collection Plus” which featured a whole bunch of old Sonic games. And when I decided to play “Sonic 2” one day I got to the stage “Mystic Cave Zone” after much struggle and was greeted with this awesome song. My biggest problem was that I didn’t want to continue because that would end the song, and that would be sad because it is so bouncy and uplifting and just amazing! It is one of those songs you expect to hear in an old platformer and when you do get it you fall in love with it. I know I did at least. Because this song is awesome.

Number 7: Taste the Blood – Devil May Cry 3 (2005)

Whoo boy… this game is difficult. When you feel like you want to give up during the combat of this game you don’t. You know why? Because this badass song keeps you pumped and makes sure you don’t give up! A line in the song even says “To take me out you must FIGHT LIKE A MAN” which basically taunts you into fighting like a badass. This track is what kept me going when I got frustrated in the game. Then halfway through they switched to a different song, not a bad one, but it isn’t “Taste the Blood”. “Taste the Blood” is awesome.

Number 6: Main theme song – Max Payne 3 (2012)

I could just as easily have gone with any of the “Max Payne” theme songs (because they are all the same song). But I went specifically with this version because it is the one I think is the best and most depressing one. This version really makes you feel how far Max has decayed as a person with his booze and pills. You really feel how heavy life is for Max when you listen to this song and you just want to reach in there and save the guy. But then you remember that if you do you will not be able to do the cool “bullet time” moves Max does in the game. But this track is a way to show that video games aren’t all happy and bouncy and for kids. Want to prove someone wrong about that stuff? Play this track. It is possibly the heaviest track I have ever heard. And that is why I love it!

Number 5: Main theme song – Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (2001)

Getting down to the big boys here! Here comes the main theme tune from the video game sequel that did everything better than the first game. This game improves on so much. But that is not why we are here, we are here for the music! To be honest I almost went with the track “Yell Dead Cell” from the game but then decided “Fuck it, main theme it is!” because it is frankly amazing. Composed by acclaimed composer Harry Gregson-Williams this song really embraces the whole badass spy espionage action thing. When you hear this you basically just want to go out, sneak in somewhere and do some cool spy stuff. But then you remember that is illegal and you go back playing some “Metal Gear Solid 2”. This song is awesome and the game is too.

Number 4: Ransacked – Wolfenstein: The New Order (2014)

Woaw, a game from last year! And it is a shooter with super nazis and a badass soundtrack… sing me up! This track from this badass game is a great way to get me like “Ho-ly shit, this is awesome!”. The soundtrack was already really good with a lot of the metal they used in the soundtrack, but then they add this little guitar tune at one of the most epic parts of the game. When I got to that part I thought “Oh crap, what’s gonna happen now” but then lost that trail of thought when I heard the guitar from this song come one and then switch to the Rock n Roll bit of it. And the Rock n Roll parts of this songs are probably my favorite parts of the song and makes me feel all badass on the inside and makes the situation in the game so much more dire and haunting. This track is awesome!

Number 3: Ezio’s Family – Assassin’s Creed 2 (2009)

I could just as easily put the entire “Assassin’s Creed 2” soundtrack here because of how great it is. But I chose to go with the song that I guess could count as the main theme song of the game. Danish composer Jesper Kyd did an excellent job composing the soundtrack for this game and I absolutely adored it! It fits the 15th century setting perfectly and it fits the amazing story just as well. I don’t know what to say more really. One thing I do like about it is how he used a good mix of guitar and other stringed intruments in this track. It worked out perfectly and that is kind of why he is one of my favorite composers.

Number 2: Born unto Trouble – Red Dead Redemption (2010)

You guys knew I wouldn’t make this list without at least talking about westerns once. This song perfectly captures the western feel so well! Perfect also how it comes from a western game that turned out to be one of my favorite games of all time. With a fantastic story, interesting characters and a soundtrack to rival Ennio Morricone (THERE, I said it!). The reason I chose this song is because of how it both captures the western feel so well and give you a sense of relaxation. It also gives a sense of realism and darkness, kind of like the movie “Unforgiven”. Bill Elm & Woody Jackson did a great job with this song and the soundtrack in general. I love them.

Number 1: Dearly Beloved – Kingdom Hearts 2 (2005)

Like with “Max Payne”, this song is featured in every installment of this franchise but I choose this version because… just listen to it! It’s fucking beautiful! The piano, the subtle strings, the subtle woodwind intruments… I love it so much! It is also perfect how this franchise happens to be my favorite video game franchise of all time. I adore it so much and the music is one of the reason why. And that is why I chose this track above all others! It is simply beautiful.

Now the list is over! Thanks for reading, hope you had a good time and I’ll see you next time! Oh wait, what are some of your favorite video game musical tracks? Leave a comment! I would like to hear from you!

See ya!

Movie Review: Gone Girl (2014)

Gone-Girl-Desktop-Background-Wallpaper

When a new crime-drama/thriller comes out I get pretty curious immediately. They attract me like a bloody venison attracts a wolf, especially if the movie looks somewhat good. Sure, there is a lot of shit out there among the crime-drama/thrillers, but I can usually escape that in one way or another. Now then I heard about this little movie one day in late summer 2014. So when I heard about it I looked it up I noticed something pretty cool… it was directed by David Fincher. If you didn’t already know, David Fincher is my favorite director. Hell, he made my favorite movie of all time, “Fight Club”. So of course the excitement started building inside of me. Unfortunately I missed it when it came out in October, but now I finally got a chance to see it. So what did I think of it? Does it hold up to previous works of Fincher? Or is it awful? Let’s take a look!

Boys and girls… “Gone Girl”.

Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) and his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) are living a happy little life. They got a nice house, they own a bar together with Nick’s sister Margo (Carrie Coon) and they got a cat. But on the day of their fifth wedding anniversary something weird happens… Amy has disappeared. I guess you can say she is a “Gone Girl”… okay I’ll stop now. So of course Nick get the cops involved in it all since he suspects kidnapping. But as the story goes on you start to wonder if Nick did it. And from there on we have one of the best stories of 2014 and possibly even the 2000’s. Not only do we have the main thing of Amy being gone (girl) but you also have Nick constantly being hounded by the media and being constantly shit upon by everyone. And I think the movie explores perfectly. It is also fun to note that this movie keeps bombarding you with twist after twist without it feeling forced or showy. Most movies that have big twists simply use them like “Hey, look at me! I use twists, I am so smart!” and come off as stupid. What “Gone Girl” does is give us a ton of twists and make them all relevant and interesting. It was also fun how I was kept interested through the entire runtime (two and a half hours) and never got bored. Good job “Gone Girl”!

The characters are all unique, incredibly fleshed out and really well acted. I am going to be completely honest, I think this is Ben Affleck’s best performance. Yes, he was really good in “Argo”, but here he really showed his talents. And Rosamund Pike, holy shit! She was fantastic in the movie! It is rare to see an actress be this good and steal the show this much. Still, I am probably easily impressed considering I have only seen her in “Jack Reacher” prior to this. Not that she was bad, she just wasn’t this amazing in that movie. And I know, I have to add my opinion on Tyler Perry in this movie… he was really good. I am not a fan of his movies, but here he showed that he can act if given the right script and director. That is the case with most actors… except for Sam Worthington, he can’t act. Overall the performances and characters in the movie were great.

This is the third time I have heard a score form Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and once again they impress me. These guys sure do have a great track record and I don’t think they know how to make a bad score. Just like in “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” the score is cold, haunting and chilling. There were scenes that got really disturbing and bone-chilling by this score. I thought the score was great! I’ll admit, it’s not something I’d start up at a party, but it is still a great score that is worth any praise.

I don’t have to mention anything about the camera work since it’s a David Fincher movie. I have praised the camera work in his other movies before, so I don’t have to mention it again. Let’s just put it like this: It is as fantastic as always! One thing that is worth knowing about this movie is how it is based on a book with the same title by author Gillian Flynn. Now that might sound kinda standard and not too worth noting at first glance, but here omces the fun part; She also adapted it into a screenplay. And you know what? The screenplay was awesome!

Now how did this movie do in the reception department? Pretty fucking well if you look anywhere. On Rotten Tomatoes it got an 88% positive rating with a “Fresh” certification. On Metacritic it got a 79/100. And on imdb.com it has an 8,3/10 and is ranked #127 on the “Top 250 list”. As of this review the movie has gotten one Oscar nomination (only one) in the category of Best Actress in a leading role (Rosamund Pike) which I really hope wins because she was awesome.

“Gone Girl” is a daring, dark, disturbing, unique, well acted, incredibly well shot and got some really great performances. It also got a great original score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Now for my final score. Where is it? Oh crap, it’s gone (girl). No, found it… I sat on it. My final score for David Fincher’s “Gone Girl” is a 9,85/10 and it of course gets the “SEAL OF APPROVAL!”

My Favorite Scenes: Scooby Doo on Zombie Island – Terror Time

Hello my friends! I am here and I am ready to share one of my favorite scenes again. And this time it is from the animated movie “Scooby Doo on Zombie Island”. I remember watching it a lot of times as a kid and loving it. I have always been a big fan of Scooby Doo. I would even dare to say the live action movies are two of my guilty pleasures. But today those are not on the menu, it is one of the best Scooby Doo movies ever made. In the scene we are looking at we see the gang get chased around by zombies while the awesome song “Terror Time” by Skycycle plays in the background. This scene is awesome and it has gotten me pumped to see the movie again some time soon.
Enjoy!
