Red Dead Redemption 2 review

Posted : 1 month, 1 week ago on 1 November 2018 03:08 (A review of Red Dead Redemption 2)

REVENGE IS A LUXURY WE CAN’T AFFORD

Eight year wait has come to an end and I’ve been so amazed and mesmerized by this game for the last five days, so I don’t even know where to begin.
It’s freaking AWESOME!
So gorgeous looking, that I could not believe it’s on this generation consols. The world itself is so huge and lively, that it’s almost impossible to bump into same side events on the same game day.
And talking about side events:
Hunting hundreds differet types of animals, fishing, searching treasures, collecting bounties, doing favors for your gang members as well as those strangers which you can bump into while wandering, around, upgrading your camp, doing daily chores like you do in real life and my personal favorite, getting to know the detailed world itself while doing all of these things, which Rockstar has created such perfectly where is very easy to get lost.
So there’s so much to do aside from the main storyline, which started so ominously and kept going on very intense direction that im looking forward to continue and finish.
Arthur Morgan is very likebly main character and so charming. You can make him very bad ass gunslinger with a bad attitude, or slighlty better but without losing that harsh personality. His model and voice acting is astounding, such as his fellow gang members and other characters in the world.
The sound design, lighting and craphics are yet again the best thing which makes this game and are executed perfectly, like in its predecessor.
This became easily my favorite game of all time with the first Red Dead Redemption. Westerns has always been part of me since my childhood and holds a special place in my heart as top spot on my movie genre list.
I won’t hurry with this, but rather take my time and enjoy while doing it.

Red Dead Redemption review

Posted : 7 months ago on 13 May 2018 01:06 (A review of Red Dead Redemption)

BORN UNTO TROUBLE

Blowed the dust off from old PS3 and desided to play once again one of my Top 5 favorite games of all time ’cause the newest Red Dead Redemption is only few months away and the hype is almost unbearable.
From the start this game brought some good and almost nostalgic memories back from 2010 and couple years after that when I played this game through over and over again first at my Xbox 360 console and later in my PS3. It means so much for me, ’cause im a huge western fan, fan of Rockstar games and of course all the time I’ve spent on it.
The open world of 1910, nearly end of wild west era is full of life, activities to do and interesting people to meet. From hunting to gambling to unlock outfits and earning reputation. From treasure hunting to helping strangers to see this magnificent looking American and Mexican borderland.
The story itself is so great revenge tale and conclusion very sad. John Marston is very likeable and charismatic antihero who get sucked into this journey by force and has to bring his crimeful past out once again to face it and put it rest once and for all.
Supporting characters are just so fantastic like in all Rockstar’s games. They each have colorful personalities, interesting stories to tell and places to take you.
Graphics, lighting and atmosphere are made so perfectly which are the best features in this game, that you will stop admiring and feeling this beautiful land more than once. Gunplay and sound effects are also so realistic, that you can almost feel the recoil and smell the gunpowder when you’re into some intense duels or hectic battles against banditos.
You can clearly see that Sergio Leone’s westerns has inspired Rockstar while making this western epic and also Ennio Morricone’s music.
This is a masterpiece and I have nothing else but high expectations its sequel which is hitting our shelfs in upcoming fall.

Once Upon a Time in the West (1968) review

Posted : 7 months, 1 week ago on 4 May 2018 05:45 (A review of Once Upon a Time in the West (1968))

WESTERN OPERA

A friend of mine once said that this movie isn’t just a movie, it’s a f**king opera. And when I rewatched this like a tenth time and on that point of view, he couldn’t be more than right.
Westerns has always been close to my heart and they aren’t just one of my favorite movie genres, it’s also crucial part of my undying love for cinema. We go way back into my childhood when Tv was playing these Saturday Westerns in the 90’s and me and my father watched almost everyone of them. From Clint Eastwood to John Wayne. 
Sergio Leone’s westerns has always been my favorite westerns because they’re realistic, bloody, violent, dirty and meant for older audience.
Once Upon A Time In The West is definitely one my top favorite westerns. It has a great revenge story with some amazing acting. I’ve always enjoyed Jason Robards performance in this film and so I did now. Bronson is bad ass like always with few lines and mysterious past like Leone likes to write his antiheroes and Henry Fonda was evil as hell.
Cinematography is phenomenal and it captured many memorable shots which pacing melted in greatly with the score. And that score is the best work of Ennio Morricone that im still listening it when im in the mood of some great movie tunes.
Sets, costumes and that sweaty looking dirty make-up are always perfect in Leone’s films and makes the wild west even more believable than it already is.
With all of these create a prefect western and perfect setting to it.

The Unknown Soldier review

Posted : 8 months, 1 week ago on 8 April 2018 11:48 (A review of The Unknown Soldier)

THE UNKNOWN HEROES

I didn’t had any huge expectations towards this movie, considering I have seen Edvin Laine’s original film countless times and remembered almost every scene by heart. But this version was definitely best of three films adapted from Väinö Linna’s book by same name.
Sets, sound effects, real explosions, realistic atmosphere and great acting were main reasons which made this movie great Finnish war film.
Jussi Vatanen and Eero Aho were definitely best on their roles from the cast.
I was little bummed out when Vatanen’s character Koskela died (spoilers). I didn’t remembered his fate and it caught me by surprise. He also showed that he can act dramatic roles as well and not only comedic, where his work is mainly known from. I liked his emotionless and cool personality, which is shaped him like that by the evilness of war.
Eero Aho’s Rokka was quit opposite. His effervescent personality and cunning words stoled every scene where he was in. Especially the scene in trench in night time where he fights against four Russian soldiers by himself was pretty bad ass.
Also the final fight in the river bank and in it with intensely silent score playing on the background and excruciatingly thrilling mood, was my favorite scene in the movie.
This movie deserves all the phrases it has get and I would like to see the full, four hours cut which they’re planing to show in Finnish Tv in form of mini series sometimes in near future. Maybe the rating will rise when I can see it in its full glory.
There was few lacking characterization and weird editing time jumps which clearly ended up in editing floor so the theatrical release wouldn’t be too long.

Daredevil review

Posted : 1 year, 6 months ago on 26 May 2017 06:33 (A review of Daredevil)

DEVIL OF HELL'S KITCHEN

Show starts with a blast! First ten minutes and fight scene in, I was hooked.
Fight scenes are the best offering from the show and also the best kind what I've seen in any Tv shows ever. Makers have clearly put their thoughts and time in them. They look like from some high budget action movie. Choreocraphy is precise and punches bloody. Hell, the whole show is pretty brutal when I think of it.
Writing and storytelling is average what you can expect from a show like this, but what really is the best part, including those great fight scenes, is the characters.
Vincent D'Onofrio's Wilson "AKA Kingpin" Fisk steals the show every time when his on the screen. He clearly enjoyed playing the part and some times you can see maybe too much.
Same goes to Jon Bernthal. Only few episodes in on second season and im already rooting for Frank Castle The Punisher. Even in those scenes when he's fighting against Murdock. Maybe because his entrance was bad ass and awesome in every level, or maybe because he's one of my top favorite comic book characters (Thomas Jane's The Punisher (2004), one of my favorite comic book movies is amazing and perfectly made). I like the character because he's just a merciless and expressionless executioner and Bernthal captured that nicely. Im getting chills every time when he's on screen. Bernthal is coming a long way since playing Shane on The Walking Dead and gradually taking a spot on my favorite actors list.
So it's clear that Charlie Cox, Daredevil, is left in the shadows of these two great actors. Elder Henson, Deborah Ann Woll are Ok and also Scott Glenn's few episode appearance was enjoyable acting work to watch.
It only remains to be seen what Elodie Yung's Electra Natchios is offering us...

Star Trek review

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 14 January 2017 12:32 (A review of Star Trek)

IT KEEPS ON LIVING LONG AND PROSPER

Needed to check this out after watching For The Love Of Spock documentary from the great past Leonard Nimoy and got hooked on it from the beginning. And it's about time. Im little bit ashamed calling myself a geek without seeing this cult classic sci-fi series which every nerd has seen or have to see. I have seen J.J Abrams movies and couple episodes here and there from the original show when it was on Tv years ago on rerun and I know the hype around it as well its characters, but now it's time to experience that all myself.
Although the acting is theatrical, the sets are pretty simple as well as cheap looking and effects primitive but was surely top of the class when it came out on 1966, I enjoy the hell out of this show! Especially those sets, which are all hand builded and that kind of work on movie or Tv business I appreciate.
I even enjoy William "Bill" Shatner's acting which is pretty over the top sometimes and I've read or heard many kinds of opinions from it, but that makes it more funnier to watch. Same goes for that goofy looking action which every time brings smile on my face when the fists starting to swing.
Leonard Nimoy's Mr Spock is essential part of the show which without him couldn't be as good as it is. And same goes to whole supporting cast all the way to George Takei's Sulu, Deforest Kelley's Dr. McCoy, Nichelle Nichols Uhura and every crew member on the bridge of Enterprise or its lower decks creates that final touch for its own unique style and still keeps its place on modern-day pop culture.

Vikings review

Posted : 2 years, 6 months ago on 30 May 2016 10:36 (A review of Vikings)

IF I HAD A HEART

Michael Hirst became my favorite TV show creator and writer after seeing his previous series, The Tudors (2007-2010). It also became one of my Top 5 favorite series of all time and it's the only series that i've watched straight again after finishing it.
Reason why i like and appreciate Hirst's work is because he take his projects seriously and write every episode only himself. He honor the source material and add some believable fiction in it, without distorting the facts. The story never bore you. There's always something interesting going on. Every character who he write is interesting such as colorful and while perfectly developing them, im sure they reflects respectfully the real person which they are based on.
After finishing Tudors, i looked forward Hirst's next project and couldn't be more happier when i red that he was writing the show based on vikings, which is one of my favorite cultures. After first episode i was badly hooked and after first season, it became one of my favorite shows at the moment. History of different countries and cultures has always interested me and i think it's a great such as endless subject to turn movies, tv show or books.
The show is violent, bloody and also a great human drama. Course of the story progress steady and never slow. There's no unnecessaries fillers, which many series or movies have. Sets, costume design and make-ups are realistic such as mighty excellent work. Also the actors do a great job on their roles.
I have to admit that i haven't heard anything about the main character Ragnar Lothbrok or his life or deeds. But have to say he was very achievable, enthusiastic learner, determinded and also unexpected nature. It's the classic from the simple farmer to the king of his people story, but very interesting and emotional one. There's a lot of twists and backstabbing, but also heartwarming moments.
Season after season show evolves for better and the journey of Ragnar become more dangerous, violent and bloody.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End review

Posted : 2 years, 7 months ago on 13 May 2016 01:59 (A review of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End)

HERE WE GO AGAIN. ONE LAST TIME.

Uncharted game franchise is very, very enjoyable series of games which are filled with intense action, interesting treasure hunts, history, memorable and colorful characters, emotional drama and great humor.
Naughty Dog is maybe my favorite gamestudio out there which focus more to detail on their games and character development alongside with Bioware, than any other studio. Their pervious game Last Of Us (2013), which became one of my favorite games of all time, was a perfect prove from that and so was Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
I played the first Uncharted game on 2007 after christmas when my sister's fiancé brought his PS3 system to my grandparents ranch, where we were spending our christmas holidays at the time. I finished it in couple of days and liked it very much. It reminded me a lot of Tomb Raider, which i prefer slightly more and the 2013 reboot is also one of my favorite games of all time. I've always liked arkeology themed movies, games and books so these games are perfect from that area.
It took almost eight years when i got a chance to play the rest Uncharted games Among Thieves (2009) and Drake's Deception (2011) after i bought Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on my PS4 system. I was Xbox 360 owner at the time when the games came out, but i tried both of them couple of times somebody elses PS3 system never finishing them. I also had seen my sister's fiancé and friend played them when they came out and eventually watched playthroughs in YouTube.
This Uncharted become my second favorite Uncharted game in the series after second installment, Among Thieves. I really like pirate era in history and pirate captain Henry Avery's story was written well alongside of Nathan's final adventure. Like Last Of Us, this game was also very well "acted" by Nolan North, Troy Baker, Emily Rose, Richard McGonagle and the rest of the cast on their motion capture suits and of course voice acting was also flawless.
I really liked the drama between Nathan's brother, Sam but more with his wife Elena. And who can forget his trusted buddy Victor "Goddamn" Sullivan a.k.a Sully who was funny and epic in this one too. There was a few scenes which were very emotional to watch, which hence the great acting/voice acting.
And those bad guys. Uncharted is one of the few games which can provide a decent, plausible and even intimidating villains. Some of them were charismatic gentlemen with a cunning attitude and almost have equal amount of knowledge with Drake, or some of them  were just merciless killers. Zoran Lazarevic, who was rival trasure hunter in Among Thieves and my favorite bad guy in the games, was that last one. Now he was very scary and deadly enemy to have.
The game was so detailed and gorgeous looking. It was almost like watching a movie. It's awesome how much Naughty Dog use time on that, so the game would look as perfect as it can. Sound effects and editing was realistic and it bringed environment to life. Action was over the top, like in previous ones but that makes these games so enjoyable to play.
This was definitely the most serious part of the series and it can see in the stroytelling. Ending was good and heartwarming. I couldn't ask for more. On one point at the end i was gasping that it would end like almost every second game in past few years, but luckily it didn't. I won't spoil anything, but let just say that Nate got himself a good and earned ending.

I Spit on Your Grave: Vengeance is Mine review

Posted : 2 years, 7 months ago on 3 May 2016 09:55 (A review of I Spit on Your Grave: Vengeance is Mine)

THE ANGEL OF VENGEANCE

I really hate the subject of rape. I think it's way below of human nature and even a think of it makes me sick. So of course while watching this final part of I Spit On Your Grave and also previous ones, i can't deny for getting huge amount of satisfaction to see how those inhuman rapers gets what they deserves by the hands of their victim. And boy was that intense and brutal way them to go.
I think that's the reason way i like these movies a lot. They are highly graphically violent and gory films. And in the end, justice happens just the way it should be to people who do such a thing as rape for someone else.
Effects are all practical and done very well. Performances aren't A class, but you can feel the fear, rage and anxiety through them. The premise in first two movies is same, but stories different which are average writing. Such as in this. 
The first one was really good and my favorite one alongside of this. I liked it more than the original, although the rape scene was way more longer in that and because of it the revenge was more satisfying to see. Which was noticed in the second part where half of the movie concentrate on that. Otherwise the acting, story and main lead wasn't that good.
It was a bummer when Steven R. Monroe didn't return to direct this last part of the trilogy, which is direct sequel to part one but Sarah Butler reprised her role as Jennifer Hills from the first movie. She was awesome in it and so was in this. Luckily she didn't get raped again but the murder of her new friend Maria, who she met on therapy group for rape victims and got killed by her ex, gived Jennifer a good reason to star her killing spree again. So it was a good change to get different kind of formula to the franchise.
I liked when she went all bad at the first movie and she did it again. She was ruthless to her victims and felt no remorse from her acts, because there wasn't any reason for that. But at the end, she seemed to get pretty addicted to killing. 
I also liked when she teases the victims with her sexuallity and body before knocking them out or striking the killing blow. That made her The Angel Of Vengeance and i think there's some heroism as well, subject which i like a lot especially in females. I think it's kinda hot and badass to see strong willed gal, who can break a few jaws and be determinded. Sarah Butler's Jennifer was just like that.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens review

Posted : 2 years, 7 months ago on 24 April 2016 02:49 (A review of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens)

THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE

Star Wars The Force Awakens was my second best movie of 2015. It gave me such a nostalgic feeling while watching it. It brought me back to my childhood when i first time saw the original trilogy and i felt child again when i went to the theatre to see this one. What an awesome feeling it was.
Casting was flawless. Daisy Ridley became one of my favorite heroine in film history and it was also great to see, that a woman is the new hope for a change in Star Wars movies. 
Adam Driver's Kylo Ren was an awesome bad guy, which honored Darth Wader in every ways. He was intimidating and impressive and i can't wait to see him again such as his new design.
Also BB-8 rules! My favorite droid hands down. So adorable. 
It was also great to see the old cast reprising their roles as Han Solo, Chewy, Princess Leia and few minutes of Luke Skywalker whom im excited to see even more in the next episodes. That last shot on the cliff was so impressive acting work what Mark Hamill did that i got multiple chills. Even though he was just standing there not saying anything.
Effects were Oscar worthy. It was nice to see that Abrams decided to use practical effects as much as possible which looked great and it made the movie even better. Sets magnificently beautiful and action scenes fast such as thrilling. Lightsaber fights were more realistic looking than in the previous ones. Not that dance looking fights, although i liked them alot. Few only good things from the previous trilogy.
I liked the story even though it was almost the same than in New Hope, but it was right thing to do it safely considering all that hate what those last three movies get. Now than the major audience like Star Wars again, it's safer to try sonerhing new but i hope they do it sanely.
