    Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)

    A bit silly but quite brilliant! Great peak into the wilderness of New Zealand!

    HBO's Last of Us

    Having NOT played the game, but watched every single dramatic cinematic on IZUNY, I have to say that...
    this series proves that the zombie genre is well and truly dead.

    I couldn't care less about being infected.
    Honestly, at this point, I'm so desensitized to the concept that I found myself rooting for the Infected (they're just living their best life, you know?)
    However, as pissed off as I was by the casting choices, I feel that:

    A. Pedro Pascal brought a sensitive also bad ass raider Joel to life very well.
    B. Bella Ramsey is a very convincing Ellie.

    The production value was top notch and the action scenes are well coordinated.
    This was better than Walking Dead (explains WHY the apocalypse happened in the first 10 minutes, doesn't waste time, lol)
    and almost as good as Black Summer.

    Anyway, I liked it.

    The Conjuring (2013)

    Found it good thanks to the investigation not the scaryness.

    Seconded. I'm not a big fan of horror movies in general, but this one is worth watch because it's not just about trying to have you crap your pants.

    Better than the first.

    First victory of the Allies against Hitler.
    English, French and Norwegian troops retook the city but the Germans took it back, after bombing it to ruins.
    Victory was brief.
    But out of all of Scandinavia, Norway held on the longest (2 months).

    What a coincidence! Neither have I.



    Black Summer Season 2


    More depressing than S01. I loved it.
    Some people complaining about realism, I don't know, I think I like my zombies on Duracell / Redbull better than Romero's snail-fest.

    Yes, an excellent movie. Very sad ending.

    Very long, kinda boring, mostly nonsensical.

    Examples:

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Jake Sully, the big war hero & leader of men/ Na'vi, when faced with existential threat, choses to go on vacation and swim with the whales.
    Whales understand sign language even though they don't have limbs.
    Na'vi Commando are pretty useless and get killed off lightning quick
    Good Team only loses one member because SULLYS STICK TOGETHER
    Quaritch is the only character that makes sense and exhibits some logic
    Humans are bad, ok, Jim, we get it...


    Seems like a repeat for the first movie, but the formula doesn't work and the story jumps all over the place.

    Why people flocked to this in cinemas, I will never understand

    It was good spectacle. And it generally worked as long as you didn't put much thought into why things were as they were. You have two good examples, many more can be found.

    John Wick 4

    So... many...headshots.
    Honestly, at this point, I don't care about the franchise. It's obvious that Johnathan Wick is unkillable.
    He is completely protected by plot armor & kevlar Armani suits.

    Also, this movie has brought food on the tables of 500.000 stuntmen & their families.
    Marathon of choreographed fight scenes that leaves you drained.
    Totally drained.

    Anyway, Keanu Reeves is almost 60.
    Come on, Hollywood!
    Give the guy a break...
