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

Movie Review: Ready Player One

Movie Review:  Ready Player One

Ready Player One is a LitRPG movie based on a book by the same name written by Ernest Cline.

The movie takes place in 2045 and has a lot of 80’s pop culture and songs to feast upon. Wade Watts, like everyone else in this dsytopian society, lives to play in the Oasis. However, the creator of the online multi-deminsional system has died several years ago and left the ‘keys’ to his kingdom in the game. When Wade (aka Parzival in the Oasis universe) stumbles upon a clue, Nolan Sorrento CEO of  Innovative Online Industries (IOI) tries to recruit him or will do whatever it takes to win ownership of Oasis.

I really liked this movie.

The first preview I saw was only the race part which I wasn’t interested in as I thought it was a virutal reatlity racing movie. However, that is a much smaller part.

Although this movie did have some plot holes, overall I really enjoyed it. There’s great effects, action, and a bit of romance.

However, if taking kids, there are a few scenes from the movie The Shining and the Chucky character that might be disturbing to some.

My rating 4.8 stars out of 5

Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049

Movie Review: Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049 poster.pngBlade Runner 2049 continues 30 years after the timeperiod of the original Blade Runner movie. It stares Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard and Ryan Gosling as K. The special effects were really good though some took getting used to with back-and-forth images of K’s girlfriend.

K finds evidence that replicants (bio-engeineered humans who are born in adult form) have produced an offspring. Through investigation and tracking down one of his own memories, he believes he is that child.

A few twists in this movie and they definately steer you to where they want you, but overall a good SciFi show. I’d have liked a longer, romantic ending, but that’s just me 🙂

My rating 4.6 stars out of 5
