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

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

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

Movie Review – HER

 

Her2013Poster

Yes, I know this is an older movie, but my husband and I watched it a few nights ago.

Her is a 2013 American movie by Spike Jonze. It marks Jonze’s solo screenwriting debut. The film follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who develops a relationship with Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), an intelligent computer operating system personified through a female voice.1

What I liked about this movie:

  •   The depth of the character change of Theodore. He goes from not being about to admit and discuss his feelings to writing a personal letter to his ex.
  • The acting. Both Joaquin (who is on screen) and Scarlett (who is only a voice) give superb performances.
  • Believable enough characters and story that I couldn’t walk away. I had to know what was going to happen.

What I didn’t like:

  • It is not a happily-ever-after story

Overall, it is a deep-thinking, mournful, heart-felt story.

My rating: 3.9 / 5 stars

#Movie Review: The Giver

The Giver

 

I ordered this movie from Netflix because the trailer had looked interesting. The beginning was okay, part of the middle was exciting, the near end it picked up, but the actual ending (to me) was a disappointment.

However, my husband had no interest in watching the movie and ended up liking it more than I did.

It’s a SciFi movie where society has shifted to people not having feelings. Where they can give one infant medicine and another poison and not know the difference or feel remorse.

The Giver (Jeff Bridges) keeps the society’s memories including colors, emotions, etc. he then ‘gives’ them to the Receiver / Jonas (Brenton Thwaites)

 

My rating: 2.5/5

 

I just couldn’t get into this movie and I love SciFi. Just when it would get interesting, it seemed to shift into dullness.

Maybe if there had been bigger revelations or even Jonas fighting for Fiona and maybe taking her with him to the mysterious border (which was another let down).  Even the movie poster makes me think there will be more suspense and action with Fiona and Jonas, but I only saw glimpses of that.

Basically, the movie didn’t meet my expectations.

Have you seen this movie? Did you like it?

Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.

Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.

Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.

Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
