Scarlett Johansson - pemeran utama film adaptasi anime "Ghost in the Sell" sempet dikritik abis-abisan, mulai dari celotehan-celotehan di sosial media hingga berujung petisi..
"Nothing against Scarlett Johansson. In fact, I'm a big fan. But everything against this Whitewashing of Asian role." Ujar Ming-Na, aktris berdarah Tiongkok yang sempat memerankan agen Melinda May dalam serial agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.S
Namun hal ini dibela oleh Produser film, Steven Paul “GITS adalah kisah yang sangat internasional. Tidak fokus ke Jepang saja. Cerita The Major bisa jadi terjadi di seluruh bagian dunia,” Oleh karena itu, sah-sah aja orang kulit putih meranin tokoh yang namanya Kusanagi.
Fyi sebelum diadaptasi jadi film live-action, anime GITS juga pernah masuk layar lebar sekitar tahun 1995. Situs Internet Movie Database (IMDb) ngasih skor filmnya 8.0 dari 10 menurut 81 ribu orang yang disurvei.

Movie review for Pacific Rim
It occurred to me after watching this movie that I have only seen one good movie by Del Toro. Which kind of sucks to be honest but there's a difference with this movie. If you go and watch it trying to take it seriously, you're not gonna have a good time. If you just sit there and watch it knowing that it's something really stupid and ridiculous, you'll absolutely love it. I mean come on. It's giant robots vs giant sea monsters. That's awesome. I'm not really even going to bother talking about the performances in full detail because they're all doing the best they can in a movie that doesn't really need good performances. I'll just say how I enjoyed them and why. Charlie Hunnam is the main character and he has such a over the top way of acting things out which ultimately made him better to watch. He's basically that stereotypical bodybuilding jock that we all love (ugh) and he does a good job at playing that role in such a over the top way. Not a good performance, but good for a movie like this. Idris Elba was also a big part of the movie and it's storyline and although his performance felt like he was doing it for the pay check, he did do a good job at being that classic style take no shit leader and I think his story with one of the other characters was somewhat interesting. Rinko Kukichi was good too and probably had the performance where it felt like she was actually trying which a lot of the others didn't have. She carries a lot of the film in the right direction and I liked watching her. Ron Perlman isn't in the movie much but when he is I think he's totally rad. He's just such a cool character with no reason for what he's doing at all except for being cool. I'm pretty sure that's how he was written because that's how it seemed. Burn Gorman was just straight up funny, he plays that crazy scientist with a cane and it's just so ridiculously good to me. (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) | Animation | Adventure | Comedy
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting race through the Forbidden Forest leading to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history.
This is the 3rd movie in the Smurfs franchise, and unlike the first two Smurfs movie, this movie is fully Animated. It seems like it’s a reboot to the series. Despite it still being not that good, this is definitely an improvement from the first 2 movies.
The movie feels similar in tone with 206 ‘Trolls’, good movie that is specially targeted at kids. Everything in this movie screams out for kids, from the jokes, action, everything is 100% aimed for kids and no adult theme at all. .
The movie is very bland, and very children targeted. The first two films at someway tries to also target the adult audience as well, which is why there was Neil Patrick Harris, etc. However, this is one is clearly aimed at elementary-level kids. Quite disappointed because good animated movies can exist with both kids and adult themes ala Inside Out.
Nothing is very special in this movie, and only few interesting moments. The characters are basically their name…. So nothing much. If you’re an adult, you will be bored, if you’re a parent with a kid, your kid will love it. So this movie isn’t Smurftastic, it isn’t Smurfrendous, but just BLAH.
Movie Brawl Rating: 7.1
Beauty and The Beast
Score : B (nostalgic, but without anything special)
Belle (Emma Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in its castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast's hideous exterior, allowing her to recognize the kind heart and soul of the true prince that hides on the inside.
I have been reluctant reviewing this one as it's a classic. We all know the story and we all know how it ends. Although it tries to fill the plothole, at its core, it's still Beauty and The Beast, a classic.
What i like most was probably the musical. The movie is geared towards it, and for the most part, it was successful. It was catchy and easy to listen to. Hell, my brain was reciting "How Can a Moment Last Forever" and "Gaston" for days.
What i worry most was how the animated characters would blend with the surrounsings. And to my dismay they blend perfectly. Yes, there are some hiccups here and there. Yes, i would prefer if Beast were less CG and more makeup. But, that's just a matter of taste and doesn't mess up the whole movie.
Emma Watson and Dan Stevens were splendid. But the spotlight goes to Luke Evans as Gaston. There is this devilish charm he possess and it's hard to not love him. I guess i'm as weak as Le Fou.
All in all, a nice trip to my childhood. There is this weird goosebumps everytime i think about it, but that's about it. I wouldn't watch it again. It's a decent movie, but girl, spare your boyfriend for this one.
#kongskullisland was a pretty decent film. It was definitely entertaining. I liked it more than the Peter Jackson version. I enjoyed the Jackson version; but I liked the story and how the world is developed in this film. The special effects were amazing. I'm not usually a fan of giant monster films but the fight between Kong and the skull crawlers was pretty damn awesome. The casting for the most part was on point. The only real disappointment was, unfortunately, #samueljackson don't get me wrong he does a good job. It is Sam Jackson after all. However, it's the same performance you see in any of his blockbuster movies. The exact same line delivery and character quarks. It's boring. #Tomhiddleston and #brielarson deliver decent performances. They make a good pair to lead the group that doesn't fear Kong. #johncreilly is hilarious as always. He was my favorite part of the film. I really enjoyed how characters develop and grow as they realize what makes a monster isn't necessarily a cut and dry issue. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this film and I do recommend it. It's not the greatest film ever but it is entertaining. #filmreviews#filmreviewer#moviereviews#filmlover#monster#movies#filmreboots#movielover#instapic
The Last House on the Left (2009): Taking the premise of Wes Craven’s 1972 original and giving it a modern makeover, director #dennisiliadis crafts a far superior film. The skeleton of the original remains but the filmmakers have fleshed out the story andthe violence in equal regard. We still have the savage attacks against two young girls, the ironic arrival of the savages at the victim’s house, and the victim’s family’s brutal revenge. Yet, Iliadis crafts his film with much more care and emotional heft. Performances are great with @sara_paxton fearlessly leading the charge with a brave performance as one of the victims. The raw intensity of her performance really opens up the film and her work here deserves accolades to be sure. She is supported by strong turns from @tonygoldwyn and @monicapottergram as the parents who must make some difficult decisions. Also of note is the trio of victimizers played by @garretdillahunt (a ball of tightly wound anger and sadism—Dillahunt disappears into the role), @glassofwhiskey (lascivious, vicious, and very scary) and @rikilindhome (displaying a feral, unpredictable energy here) who aren’t nice people but are all played incredibly well. The film certainly doesn’t shy away from the violence (both sexual and physical) and it never plays out in a pleasant manner. When Iliadis wants to, he ramps things up but (aside from a few moments in the finale) it never feels truly gratuitous. Disturbing, yes, but not gratuitous. I also was fond of the modern sheen the movie has throughout. There are some gorgeous shots that contrast quite well with the ugliness perpetrated by these characters and this makes for an interesting juxtaposition. This feels like an assured film from a filmmaker who understood it’s central vision from the get go. While it isn’t a fun viewing experience, The Last House on the Left (for the right viewer) is an astonishing experience and one of the best horror remakes I’ve ever seen. #movie_mattinee @samenightmovie

The Good, The Bad, The Weird 2008 South Korea
Do you like action, adventure, westerns and comedy?
In the late 1930's, three men, The Good (Jung Woo-sung) a sharp shooting bounty hunter, The Bad (Lee Byung-hun) a hitman and The Weird (Song Kang-ho) a thief are after the same treasure map.
Starting with a train robbery, this movie is action packed from start to finish, including a shootout in village and 20 minute motorcycle vs. horse vs. army chase across the desert. The Weird also provides some comic relief where you think he doesn't know what he's doing, but he has it all planned out.
The final standoff at the end had a Tarantino feel to it. (more to come about Tarantino in the next week or so)
The cinematography is excellent, using wide, close up and tracking shots.

I'd like to talk about an old friend of mine, one who's been a part of my life for almost as long as I can remember.
One of my favorite things about movies, and I mean the idea of movies as much as individual films, is how they're like portals. Little time capsules. Like when you hear a song that used to mean a lot to you, or that you heard a lot during a certain period of your life, and it's like time traveling: suddenly you can recall vivid details of that period of your life, the emotions you felt, the things you were happy or sad about. People who meant a lot to you. Movies are similar. They're not pure emotion like songs are, but they can symbolize a lot to someone. That's what having a taste in film is, after all: you become attached to it; it means something to you.
Recently I've been feeling rather nostalgic, as I am prone to do periodically, and this time it's in the form of kind of rediscovering and reappreciating my love of Godzilla, the indisputable King of the monsters. As a kid, my little brother and I had all number of Godzilla toys, including many of his famous enemies, and even had a boxed set of movies. A dream come true, basically. There was a time that I lived for those old movies, warts and all. Because although it isn't unreasonable to say that after the original Gojira, and pretty much until 2014, there wasn't another good or great Godzilla film, even so there's this niche they all fall into, for me. And lately I've been revisiting a couple of my old favorites. And it's like nothing's changed. They're perfect in their campiness, their weirdness, their simplicity. I hope you guys don't mind seeing some Godzilla discussion and reminiscing posts, which I'll be posting periodically along with my usual reviews and my Top 20 Favorite films posts, as I revisit and reacquaint myself with this old friend of mine. He and his timelessly awesome theme score, universally recognizable roar, his awkward phases, and his perpetually being surrounded by humans far less interesting than he.
Mi recomendación para esta tarde ventosa:
'The Night Of The Hunter' (La Noche Del Cazador, 1955) de Charles Laughton.
Robert Mitchum se luce en este filme sobre un manipulador y falso profeta que engaña a viudas por codicia, y que, luego de hacerse la noticia de un tentador motín en manos de unos niños huérfanos, se va en busca de su premio. Luces y sombras se mezclan perfectamente con la tensión recreada. Parecerá un filme infantil en el primer vistazo, pero es oscuro y lleno de simbolismos, una inspiración del género noir que persiste en el tiempo y sigue influyendo.
Review for The Rock:
Strap your butt in for a high intensity, seat gripping action movie with one of the best duos of the 90’s: Nicolas Cage and Sir Sean Connery. Cage plays an FBI chemist who's days typically consist of shooting plastic guns, dodging the marriage police and defusing terrorist bombs. When war hero Ed Harris and his team are sick and tired of Black Ops soldiers’ not getting proper compensation they decide the only solution is steal rockets armed with chemical weapons and point them at San Fransisco. They set up their base in the impenetrable Alcatraz Island and demand 1 mill each or they will fire the rockets.
Cage must break into The Rock - no easy task. Too bad the terrorists didn't count on the oldest, most bad-ass super spy in the world to be helping Cage.
If you enjoy Nicolas Cages overacting, a plot with many holes in it, and mediocre action then this may be the movie you've been waiting for. Sure, this is a 90s movie so we'll give it a bit of slack. There's some good action scenes and some pretty awesome lines, including "Losers always whine about doing their best, winners go home and fuck the prom queen".
Its a classic Geek to Chic situation with Sean Connery! It's a makeover that does not disappoint.
The Hummer vs. Ferrari chase scene was awesome. Sean Connery barking like a dog in Nicolas Cages face is also a highlight. There are some intense scenes with chemical weapons, slow motion shooting, and of course cheesy lines.
Swarlos’ couldn't get over the plot. The "bad guys" who are ex US special forces are ready to kill a million people in the heart of San Francisco order to get 1 mill. It's really quite the leap to genocide for a bonus.
Just like when Cage has to stab himself in the heart with a needle to stop the chemical threat from killing him, and stabs himself in the belly button, this film misses the mark. It's what you'd expect from a 90s action movie. It's entertaining, and will leave you asking "why?!" in many scenes. We said "Why Not?!" despite Sean Connery making gang rape jokes we're giving this one 60 green balls of chemical ooze out of 100 green balls of chemical ooze.
Now let's be real, there's only one good Crow film. They were just never able to catch that midnight magic again, though they tried, with four more films and a dud of a tv series. Each of the sequels is nearly the exact same as the first, in terms of plot: a man is killed by feral urban thugs, only to be resurrected one year later by a mysterious crow, blessed with invincibility and begins to work his way through the merry band of scumbags in brutal acts of revenge, arriving at the crime lord sitting atop the food chain, usually a freak with vague ties to the supernatural or occult. All the films in the series are structured that way, but only one deviated and tried something slightly different with the formula. City of Angels, the second, is a boring, almost identical retread of the first, it's only energy coming from a coked up Iggy Pop. Wicked Prayer, the fourth, had a premise with potential aplenty, and turned out so maddeningly awful I'm still dabbing the blood from my eye sockets. Salvation, however, is the third entry and almost finds new air to breathe by altering the premise slightly. Instead of lowlife criminals, it's a posse of corrupt police detectives who frame an innocent dude (Resident Evil's Eric Mabius) for crimes they themselves committed, fry him to a crisp in the electric chair and get off scott free. His girlfriend (Jodi Lyn O'Keefe) is also killed in the process. Now, not only is it cops instead of criminals, but the arch baddie at the top of the pile is the police commissioner, who has occult written all over him. *Not only* that, but he's played by Fred Ward, who is brilliant in anything. While nowhere near an iota of the atmosphere or quality of the first film, this one works better than any of the other sequels, thanks to that spark of an idea that changes the game ever so much. The detectives are a nice and skeevy bunch too, played by the reptilian likes of William Atherton, Walton Goggins and others. Ward wears the starched, proper uniform of an authoritative figure, but his eyes gleam with the same secrets and dark magic we saw in the two other previous underworld kingpins, Top Dollar (Michael Wincott) and Judah Earl (Richard Brooks)

Rating 👍👍👍 A MONSTER CALLS @amonstercalls
I have to admit, when going to watch this, I actually had mixed feelings on what to expect. Surprisingly, it is not at all what most of us expected. Director @filmbayona put a lot of heart in this deep drama about loss, grief, truth and letting go.. Adapted from the novel by @patricknessbooks
Connor O'Malley @lewismacdougall is a kid who is too mature for his age because of his ailing mother #felicityjones . Plagued by nightmares of some sort, about a giant groot-like monster (voiced by #liamneeson ) showing up at his door, he often doesn't get much sleep. In a twisted sort of way, He eventually befriends the monster who everyonce in a while fuels his inner destructive desires.
He often doesn't agree with his strict grandmum #sigourneyweaver who wants him to come live with her. His dad #tobykebbel , who has moved to America and remarried comes back to see Connor and tries to patch things up explaining that most of us only get "mercily ever after". I don't want to give too many spoilers, but you should check it out. Cheers

오늘도 인생무상을 느끼면서 집을 가다가 봉식배우님의 영화개봉 소식이 떠올라서 급봤다!!!! 지치고 재미없고 살기 싫은 인생의 어느 하루를 행복하게, 의미있게 마무리 할 수 있었던 탁월한 선택이었다☺
#원라인#김해#장유#cgv#170329#영화#리뷰#영화리뷰#강해걍써#글스타그램#movie#moviereviews#reviews 너무너무너무 재밌었다! 할 이야기가 엄청 많다! 감독의 의도가 정확하게 느껴지고 쉴틈없이 몰아치는 반전과 스토리라인과 액션. 하지만 캐릭터들은 각자의 성격을 오롯이 드러내고 있기에 이해안되는거 전혀 없었음! .
임시완님이 연기하는 것을 해품달(내인생첫덕질)이후로 처음 봤는데 배우맞구나 ㅋㅋㅋ 연기 잘하는거를 머리속으로 알기만 하다가 직접 보니까 뭔가 더 와닿았다. 긴 러닝타임을 충분히 잘 이끌어가서 짱멋있음
진구 아찌.... 너무 멋있네여. 인간답지 않은 일을 인간답게 한다는 사람. 아저씨 너무 멋있음.. 명대사 뿜뿜!!!!
#현봉식 어빠... 영화 시작하고 얼마 안지나서 존재감 엄청 강하게 등장해서 당황했다ㅋㅋㅋㅋ 진짜 오랜만에 보고 여전히 멋있고 분량 뿜뿜해서 우리 배우님이라고 자랑 하고 싶었음 짱짱짱 진짜 뒷골목 가면 있을 거 같다 ㅜㅜㅜ 능청스러워서 너무 웃기고 ㅋㅋㅋ .
#황성준 배우님!!!! 찾아써요!!! 영화 시작하고 40분 안됐을 때, 여러명의 사람들 중에 한명으로 나오는데 카메라가 한 사람을 잡을 때 그 뒤에 있어요!! 거의 1-2초였는데 존재감 짱이었음ㅜㅜ 배우님 이름 보려고 엔딩크레딧 끝까지 기다렸는데 안나와따... 하지만 덕분에 많은 소중한 이름들을 봤습니다!
나는 영화보는 내내 "남의 입장이 돼봐라"라는 말을 떠올렸다. 극 중에서 캐릭터들이 상반되는 위치의 상대역과의 장면을 변주해서 반복하는 장면이 여러번 있었다. 처음부터 마지막까지. 가장 인상 깊었던 것은, 대학생으로 대출받기 위해서 손을 들며 홍대리의 전화를 받던 민대리가 후에 경찰의 전화를 받으면서 손을 들던 모습.
(2/2) Me encantó el "squad" que se formó cuando los sobrevivientes se juntaron en la isla. Parecían personajes de muñequitos, cada uno con su style y un grupo bien variado. A veces se pasaban con los ángulos GQ de #TomHiddleston pero you get the idea. Brie parecía demasiado de los 70 (that's a good thing). También me pareció interesante el hecho de que los animales eran más grandes y más similares a los dinosaurios. Queda muy bien con la teoría de que el hombre causa un efecto en el reino animal. Esto me lleva al otro punto: el mensaje es claro. El hombre destruye todo lo que toca. Una isla virgen se ve de pronto y sin aviso bombardeada por estos imbéciles humanos obviamente van a fight back.
En muchos casos me recordó a Jurassic World, como en los momentos de peleas entre animales y esa intensidad proyectada en pantalla. En otros se puso demasiado "heróica", como que los militares entrenados son los que más fácil mueren pero los civiles mágicamente son expertos disparando y planeando brillantes estrategias de escape?? But then again el género es acción así que supongo es aceptable. También, los noté muy calmados para estar frente a animales que parecían edificios; yo hubiese entrado en un ataque de pánico pero ahí todo el mundo parecía experto en "keeping their cool" (Como Mason tirando fotos en medio de una guerra bestialmente épica entre gorila y lagarto gigante like wtf? Yo ni siquiera tuviese fuerzas para estar parada pero ok 🙄) Siento que me faltó ver una escena un poco más seria de tono, que los personajes se preguntaran si de verdad iban a regresar, que alguien llorara en la oscuridad, algo con un poco más de emoción e íntimamente triste y preocupante porque sin eso, era como muy obvio el final.
En fin lo que digo es que le faltó un poco en historia. Pudo haber sido más profunda y quizás más elaborada. En principio crees que va a llegar a ser más de lo que crees y luego *puff* nunca llega, y simplemente se mantiene en un sorprendente display de efectos visuales. Por eso y nada más eso es que nuestro rating no llega a 4, porque todo lo demás fue genial.
RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️3.9/5 #KongSkullIsland#Kong#mariacocaleca
(1/2) #KongSkullIsland fue una película inesperadamente agradable. Desde que empezaron los créditos y estas buenas tipografías y videos de fondo dije ok, esto se ve muy interesante. Más adelante nos presentan a un cast estelar, con #Loki , #BrieLarson (que se convirtió en una favorita instantánea mía después de su Oscar-winning performance en Room), #SamuelLJackson , el hot british guy de Black Mirror (creo que se llamaba Luke) y otros muy importantes también.
Desde el principio los efectos visuales y la cinematografía fueron un punto a favor, el sonido, la edición, todo esto fue increíble. No conocía al director pero supo dirigir esta película de maravilla. Unos ángulos de cámara super inusuales e innovadores, y ni se hable de los efectos visuales de Kong. #mindblowing . Aprecio mucho que hayan utilizado bosques reales en Vietnam y otros países para filmar porque de verdad que se percibía que no era fake, y es posiblemente por eso que la fotografía se siente muy refreshing, y no puedo ni explicar el impacto visual que me produjeron las escenas de las tribus nativas de Skull Island, como dijeron al lado de mi, "Parece National Geographic". Solo puedo usar una palabra para describirlo: Bello.
Una de las cosas que más me gustaron de esta experiencia (porque es una experiencia) es que de alguna forma logran que se sienta como una atracción de parque. Osea me sentía como si estuviese en Universal o algo por el estilo, fue un sentimiento difícil de explicar pero creo que me entenderán si la ven (en el cine). Como que Kong me estaba mirando a mí, como que yo era la que disparaba el arma o que estaba adentro de los helicópteros que volaban a millón. Todo esto se sentía muy surreal incluso sin ser 3D ni nada. #mariacocaleca
Movie review for Beauty and the Beast
When it comes to this movie my memory is very foggy about the original. Saw it a very long time ago and only remember bits and pieces about it. I don't remember the songs at all and therefore can't really say how they transition from the old to new. But as for live action adaptations I know there's been Cinderella, which I haven't seen yet, and The Jungle Book which I thought was pretty good and Pete's Dragon which I loved. Beauty and the Beast has it better though. This adaptation is one of the better ones and has a great energy to it if you ask me. Being a musical means I'm likely not to be that into it but I have to say that the music in this was absolute gold. It's not the kind of music I'd listen to on its own or go out of my way to hear again but when it's there in the movie it works and it's incredibly well put together. I was with someone else who told me there's even a few songs added on that weren't on the original and I thought they worked really well in the moment especially one that the Beast sings near the end. Let's talk about the performances. I've been seeing a lot of people hating on Emma Watson because apparently her singing was bad. Yeah no. It wasn't. Shut up. She sounded absolutely amazing and gorgeous and it added a lot to how she was as the character and putting the singing aside, she was great as Belle. Has an amazing vibe to her where you just can't help but love her and want the best for her. I thought she was great. And Dan Stevens as The Beast was absolutely brilliant. He had the part of thrills and exclusion right down and he made the best out of that part of it but as you gradually start to see him show his true self it's just beautiful and really well performed. You can see a lot of the characters past haunting him in the present and it makes the character of The Beast really compelling. (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
