Rampart (2011)

Rampart (2011)

Rampart sucked. It'll probably get an Oscar. The movie is well made, stars good actors, features vivid emotions, varied scenery and very lifelike portrayals of a grim reality in a normal world. Where's the entertainment? Movies like this are just depressing. Artistic, maybe. Documental, sure. Is it based on a real story? It's too real for me.

Red Tails (2012)

Red Tails (2012)

Here's another new movie I just watched. It's about a company of black fighter pilots during the second world war. They're still oppressed due to color, but through their efforts they manage to stand out anyway. Through the movie we get to know a set of characters, all with strong personality traits. They're presented well in a way that they all gain audience empathy, and when things happen to them it really stings. It's a movie that'll stay etched in my mind, not just because of an intertwined happy/tragic end but because of the great aerial footage included, featuring a wide array of both older and newer planes and spectacular effects. I don't know how it would look IRL, but it looks real, it's very well done.

They manage to capture the essence of flight as well. When the places glide through soft clouds it feels like you're up in the sky with them, and you imagine how the clouds feel. Most of the movie takes place in the sky, but there's a lot of ground filming as well. Everybody is a great actor, even the minor characters. The scenery is superb; if it's not about the sky it's about the beautiful views beneath the planes. This just might be my favorite movie of the year... maybe better than 21 Jump Street. Bit hard to compare movies of so completely different genres though. Anyway, even if you're no plane fan, this is a recommended watch. It'll leave you stirred emotionally and stuffed on flight. Really.

Outpost 2 - Black Sun (2012)

Outpost 2 - Black Sun (2012)

The first Outpost movie was a thriller, this one is more action oriented. The Nazi's are taking over the world using their newly created techniques, a task force has been sent in to stop them, a reporter ends up splat in the middle. She's female btw, obvious choice. The atmosphere is creepier than it was last time, the effects and surroundings have much more work put in them, there are more people involved, there's a lot more action, but it still fails to break out of the just-another-movie category. I feel like the plot had an even better potential in this, and sometimes they've really managed to capture that eerie feeling all Nazi movies send out, but overall, it's just not good enough. Not good enough actors. Not good enough flow of the overall film. It'll keep you entertained, but it's nothing memorable.

Outpost (2008)

Outpost (2008)

Dreams of the third reich didn't end with the war, they kept going, underground. It turns out the Nazis were experimenting with something that would make their soldiers immortal. It's almost within their grasp. A scientist pops up and fulfills their goals. It's a thriller with a bit of action, bit of a creepy atmosphere but nothing that makes it stand out. Not incredible actors either, it feels very normal. I feel the plot could have been used much better for a much better movie. Mediocre.

This Means War (2012)

This Means War (2012)

This was a potential candidate for cinema viewing the last time I went to the cinema, but I chose to watch it at home instead. Good choice. It was way too romantic for cinematical viewing IMHO. It was a good movie, well-filmed with a few (though a bit too rare) good action scenes, a lot of comedy, a lot of awkward situations, a lot of romance. A typical feel-good film with two guys competing over one girl. Of course none of them usually date, the girl hasn't been interested, and there's a flashy happy ending. Typical. Twist? Maybe. Enjoyable? Decently. Maybe the atmosphere is too bright. Maybe everything is just too perfect. Maybe it's just that this is a film for girls. IDK, good movie, but nothing I'd watch again .

 rated 3/5: not bad

Puss In Boots (2011)

Puss In Boots (2011)

Puss In Boots is an animated mixture of tales. There's Jack & Jill, Jack & The Beanstalk, The Golden Goose, Humpty Dumpty, Zorro (?) and probably a few more I didn't recognize. The main character is a cat that wields a sword. Obviously there's comedy, action and romance. There's even some moral values in the mix, and everything is well-animated. Great watch.
