I FINALLY got around to watching the R-rated Director's Cut of DareDevil yesterday after hearing about how it's a lot better than the shitacular film we got in theaters and I'm here to tell you, they were right! Not only is it darker and grittier, much like the character/franchise, but the story flows better and makes more sense with these new scenes added. The difference is night and day. Scenes even transition better in the Director's Cut.

So we can add this one to the long list of movies ruined by studios watering down films intended to/should be R. The director himself (Mark Steven Johnson) even said Fox meddled to get a PG-13 rating (to its detriment) and this was the version we were supposed to get from the start. They even cut out an important subplot simply to avoid an R rating.

It still can't beat the Netflix version, though.

Finished watching the first season of Unikitty last night with my little cousins. Overall, it was a lot of fun. A tiny bit of the humor wasn't good and there was a few moments that were a bit too cutesy for me, but with some likable characters, colorful animation, nice music, and humor that has fun mocking other films, I surprisingly enjoyed this show to death.

Currently watching the new Hellboy, OMG it's skreeonking terrible. All the people who said it's gross and violent just for the sake of gross and violent are 100% right. This movie is nasty just to be nasty, which I could somewhat look past if the story was at least decent, but it's not. The story is all over the place, none of the characters have any depth, it's a mess. Why they let GDT go after the second movie, I'll never know.

Thank God I waited for the Redbox instead of paying $12 to see this in theaters.

Wow, it's almost like R ratings mean nothing and there's more to the quality of a film such as writing, directing, acting, and pacing! (I say this in good fun, but I do hope this helps to show that ratings do not equal quality)

It's about on par with the 2003 DareDevil film*.

No, not the much better R-rated Director's Cut, the hacked-to-bits PG-13 theatrical release. You know, the one that had to remove a bunch of violence and a hooker subplot, which left a bunch of plot holes and story structure issues (hence why the DC is so much better) just to BARELY avoid an R rating? Hence showing why it sometimes IS needed to properly tell a story (PG-13 RoboCop didn't work, either, even with the exact same writers as the hard R original; gee, I wonder why)?

*Seriously, it is.

If anything, it only shows an R rating isn't a guaranteed success, especially a movie with so many production issues. Still doesn't justify watering down films, though, a lot of good it did THESE movies (and countless others). Hell, it actually HELPS my case against studio interference.

Okay, but you do realize your case is about taking a film that is written, directed, filmed to be R rated and then cutting footage to make it PG-13, rather than setting out to make a film that just happens to be rated PG-13 as opposed to R. There's a big difference there. (And good lord you can stop posting that video, man lol)

I'll probably receive a lot of hate for this but I last watched the 2019 Hellboy and actually really enjoyed it.

It wasn't a complete dud, there actually were some good ideas buried in there as others have attested to, but like I said, it was pretty much skreeonked with all the production issues. Who knows how it would've turned out if Neil Marshall had been allowed to make the movie he wanted to make without all the interference from producers, but it just wasn't meant to be. We saw it coming a mile away with Fant4shit as well.

Oh, and I just rewatched Alita Battle Angel after picking up the Blu-Ray, great movie. Also watched the 7th episode of Euphoria on HBO Go yesterday. Sunday's series finale is gonna be something to behold.

47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019)

3 out of 10 stars

Interesting concept. Basically Jaws meets The Descent otherwise an lame and another typical shark movie. The acting was fine as is the pacing (Since its an hour and 20 something minutes if you don't count credits) but the characters weren't that interesting and the movie didn't establish or develop the relationship process between the sisters enough (Such as one of them giving this skreeonk who is mean to her sister the finger in public rather then savagely roast her), felt like a straight to DVD sequel, cheap lines of dialogue in the beginning, reliant on jump scares as usual (Seriously is this what horror movies will stick to nowadays?) and also leads to various questions like

Spoiler:
How do fish scream (I'm not kidding this actually happens)? Also how can such an enclosed environment support a population of massive predators and an sustainable food source? Those screaming blind fish can't be enough to keep them thriving.


That said I'd only watch this if your a sucker of shark movies like myself otherwise your not getting much from this. Not the worst movie this year (I'd put this above Glass, Brightburn, Pet Sematary and Captain Marvel) but definitely disappointing and probably will still grab it on disc for collectors sake especially since I have the first movie. If I were to suggest I'd go watch Crawl instead which also came out this year.

Currently watching 'Serengeti' on Discovery Channel. I can't say how exactly, but, there's a bit of a surreal quality to the cinematography.

Just watched the Quentin Tarantino movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Movie is unreal.

Great movie. Not sure how I feel about the Bruce Lee scene. Mike Moh got his mannerisms done great like his fleet of foot stance. But as for a random stuntman besting him in a fight, I don't know. It's fine though, I know Tarantino likes to play fast and loose with facts for the sake of fiction. Also The Manson Family house is more wretched than the Sawyer house in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Disgusting.

I do enjoy how Tarantino breaks convention from time to time for how he shoots and establishes his scenes. For example, the part where Leo is acting for the Western, it's presented on screen as though it were a finished and edited movie instead of with the camera crew around him. Until he breaks the immersion when Leo forgets his line.

Good Boys.

I'm here to tell you, the concept of a raunchy comedy featuring 12-year-old doing adult poop was every bit as funny and off-the-walls as it sounds and made for a good time at the theater. Seth Rogen even takes the piss out of it in the red band trailer by saying "you can totes do these things in the movie, but you can't watch yourself do them in the trailer".

It follows the same concept of Superbad, except with 12-year-olds, and while this isn't on that movie's level (which kinda goes without saying since Superbad can't be topped), some of the jokes really do land because of how batshit insane it is. I was dying at some of the jokes they pulled in this movie. Story structure and pacing isn't great (but good enough, I guess), but on a purely comedic level, it was a funny, entertaining time with just enough character development to keep you invested.

Oh and speaking of character arcs:

Spoiler:
Did Hannah and Lily secretly have a "thing" for each other towards the end of the movie? Eh, maybe I'm looking too far into it.


7.5/10.

Hey guys I last watched the Bruce Lee movie Way of The Dragon

Always loved this movie, probably a good pick for my favorite Bruce Lee movie. Anyway notice how well shot the martial arts scenes actually are? Nothing flashy or over edited, just nice wide shots that are held with minimal edits.

Maybe it's just me but I only just noticed that the girl who plays Miss Chen, Nora Miao, is actually a beauty. Not sure how I missed this until now, or maybe I did notice but didn't think much of it until now.

Alita: Battle Angel: 7.50/10 (The best (and only passable) live action American adaptation of an Japanese manga/anime that I've seen
The Lion King (2019) : 6/10
Aladdin (2019): 6/10 (I still think that having Guy Ritchie known for violent crime thrillers like Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is an extremely odd choice for a Disney director)

Crocodylus, this is a very strong contender for my worst movie of the year, and worst monster movie of all time! It feels like the whole thing is made up of b-roll footage, time had no meaning in this as the run time is real short. The events of the film are taking place over a week, but feel like it takes place over two days. Huge plot points seem to happen off screen, characters are interested off screen and disappear. most of the monster sences happen off camera as well.

From what I've gathered from this mess, that a professor trys to cure his son's cancer by injecting him with D.N.A from a fossil of a prehistoric crocodile. This mutants the son into a crocodile-human hybrid (i.e a guy in cheep dinosaur Halloween mask) and he hide a killing spree.

I just watched An Affair to Die For on Netflix, holy poop was that stupid. This movie is filled with convoluted logic and a messy plot that's all over the place. I don't know why this showed up on my Popular on Netflix queue, the people who watch Netflix must have some INCREDIBLY low standards and watch anything they put out. The only reason I even gave it the time of day (which I'll never get back) is because it said popular on Netflix. And because I was bored to tears, lol.

I've been on a Looney Tunes (New, OG and others like Duck Dodgers) binge these past few days.
And I gotta say, it has HELD UP.
80% of the comedy is god-tier, every character there is fun and interesting. I never got bored, really.
