Movie Review: The Titan

Movie Review: The Titan

The Titan poster.pngIn 2048, Earth is overpopulated and subject to many wars, disease, etc. A scientist offers a select group of military personnel the opportunity to alter their DNA and live on one of Saturn’s moons (that is most compatible with Earth).

Rick Janssen (played by Sam Worthington) is one of the few. His body goes through changes but what will he become, exactly?

The first half of this movie was pretty good. However, once Rick’s wife, Abigail (a Doctor) discovers what the head of the operation is actually doing to the test subjects, the plot becomes muddled with holes.

***Warning, spoilers ahead ****

Here are just a few things that don’t make sense:

  • When Abigail confronts the lead professor saying, “there’s something alive inside him.” Nothing else is done/shown about this. It’s just left hanging there.
  • After the complete transformation of Rick and one other college, why in the hell does the program send them home even if they’re “going to be shipped out in two days.” ESPECIALLY when some of the others have had violent episodes? Why not keep them at the facility and just allow visitation until 24hours before liftoff.
  • The lead professor gives Abigail a vile of liquid to shoot Rick with that will “erase his memories and ties to Earth.” Then how is he going to help humans and Earth on Saturn’s moon if he doesn’t remember anything?
    • Also, how is he, one being, going to be able to do anything to help Earth’s overpopulation and changing humans to become like him and colonize Saturn’s moon?

I would’ve liked this movie better if they’d stayed with the “there’s something alive inside him” vibe and go from there.

Movie Review – Avengers: Infinity War

Movie Review – Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers Infinity War poster.jpgThe movie opens with Thanos possessing one of the Infinity stones. Soon, he defeats the Hulk and gains another stone. Most of the movie is spent with the Avengers and their friends trying to block Thanos from gaining any more.

Without creating further spoliers, I’ll stop there. The action and special effects were supurb. However, I did feel that some of the storyline was lacking. Instances where there could’ve been deeper conversations between characters, etc. was glazed over.

The ending of the movie felt rushed and I worry that my prediction of what will come in Part 2 of this movie will happen. I want to be surprised and awed and while I enjoyed Infity War immensly the shock value of the ending didn’t resonate with me.

***Spolier Alert *** I feel like the characters vanishing was a ploy and they’ll be back.

What about you? Have you seen Infinity Wars? What’s your thoughts?

My rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

When is the next Infinity Wars coming out?

It’s tentatively scheduled to be released on May 3, 2019

Movie Review: The Dark Tower

Movie Review: The Dark Tower

The Dark Tower teaser poster.jpgI have to confess that I’ve not read the books in this series. And while I didn’t mind the movie per se, it did seem unfulfilling. And some parts, like the end with the bad guy, were too easy and made no logical sense.

However, I wasn’t basis, since I haven’t read the books like my husband who grumbled ever so often, I didn’t mind some aspect that irritated him.

Overall, I thought the movie was okay and now had me more curious about the books.

 

My rating 3.4 stars out of 5

Movie Review: Humans Season 2

Movie Review: Humans Season 2

Okay, so not technically a movie, but Humans the TV SciFi Series is pretty good. This review is about Season 2. If you want my input on Season 1 it’s in my movie archives (which I will link if I can figure out how 🙂

This is a SciFi series that follows that humans have made robots to help in every aspect of their lives. But their creator has a secret code built in some of them. A code that can wake them into consciousness.

But not every robot wakes up happy and healthy. Lots of bittersweet scenes in this season. There are a few plot holes but overall, I still want to know what happens next.

 

Note: Season 3 is scheduled to air June 10, 2018! 

 

My rating 4.3 stars out of 5
