One Punch Man Season 2 EP 12

At the brink of death, in an epic battle against Bang and his brother, Garou's picked up by a bird - saved by the talons of the monster association.

Before that that we get a rattling glimpse of his raising, at the injustices he's faced, and a preview of what might be coming next. And then One Punch Man stops by to save the day!

What a great place to take a break before I leave for summer! With Centurion blasted to smithereens, and the quite different monster duo riding off into the sunset... can't wait to get back to this when I get back.

No cliffhangers here. If you're looking for a pause: this is the place.

To be continued.

A Fire Week

A yellow house turned black beside us.

The smoke billowed.

The flames roared - you could hear but not see.

The firetruck came and doused it in either salvaging foam, or water - I'm not sure. But they got it under control. The smoke subsided, the windows were left open, and from the street the garden's now surrounded by warning tape and an ominous scorched darkness.

Looking through the windows it's like you're peering into an abyss. Into a house with no soul.

I wrote a song while the smoke still blew. Air ducts closed. Hot in the room. Have a listen.

I've got beats en masse at the moment but for some reason I just keep putting out these a capella recordings instead of the important stuff. Because I suck at prioritizing, at being spontaneous, and at not putting undue pressure anything I want to turn out better than the usual stuff because... well I'm just like that. Right now.

I need summer more than ever. I use it more and more to kickstart myself again, and start aiming the right way. Shed unhealthy habits, tiredness, weak muscle and apathy and just get going. Once again.

Engine slowing down. Need tune-up. Tired. Need motivation. Need relaxation. Need sun. Need air. Need grounding. Need barefoot feet-kneading. Need water. Need movement. Need a moment.

But that thing about a capella things: this one's not an a capella, so check it out. Summer looms. I'm trying to do things; will speak to you soon.

Bou Lou You!

And this is why I love Strange Music. XD

Bitch (2017)

Bitch (2017)

A woman snaps and assumes the psyche of a vicious dog as her checked-out, philandering husband attempts to keep the family together.

Bitch believes she's a bitch. Her husband's spoiled. Can't do anything right. The kids do their thing. The filming's creative. It's a comedy with darker tone: relationship drama. They figure things out. Ambiguous end. Don't know if the wife's really alright again or still a dog, in bed with her master...

The idea's not bad, but the movie. Man. It's just not my style. Not at all. Too expressive. Too exaggerated. Too normal, still. Too not funny. Not fun but not serious either. Not inspiring nor depressing, and it has an aura of dullness to it.

I don't know exactly what I didn't like about this, but it might be as simple as the main actors. And the style of film. It's just not my style.

 rated 1/5: shit shit shit

Snake Outta Compton (2018)

Snake Outta Compton (2018)

You know what this one plays on right?

If you don't you'd better watch the original first - then give this one a go.

The rap bits may be intentionally whack sometimes, and even in the end the hook is (where I assume it's not meant to be) out of sync, but Cam definitely knows his bit, that cop's a real killer - almost seems like he could've been played by the RZA - and the mad scientist genius is a mad talent as well. Big props Motown Maurice, and whomever played that officer!

Unfortunately the special effects are crap. Sometimes. But the movie had more going for it than not, and the props definitely aren't.

It's giving off B-movie vibes like I haven't seen in a while, but in a good way, and I appreciate both the witticism and homage to all that it pays tribute to. So many pop culture references!

It was way better than expected. Black culture appropriation. Dig it.

 rated 3.5/5: not bad at all

Kill Speed (2010)

Kill Speed (2010)

Best friends fly home-built, high-tech planes to deliver drugs from Mexico to California in order to fund their Hollywood life-style.

Pretty sure I've seen this one before.

The same things that bugged me last time bug me now - like that tough guy at the start of the movie just waving the gun around aimlessly until the cops pull up and arrest him. And Tom Arnold making such a half-assed dive for his gun in the back of the van that they could've easily shot him. Things like that.

On the other hand the first explosion is awesome, the fire extinguisher bit was fun, the planes are cool, the tough guys look bad-ass for real, and... well it's just a really smooth movie that way. It looks good. The dialog's the weak part. And the script. The authenticity too.

The big turn irks me the most though. The relation. The obvious bit, when she was checking his computer and he didn't suspect a thing. The filming was solid but there's just so much wrong with the directing, and the script. All of it. How the characters react, and speak, and interact, and how easily legality and illegality mix.

In the end it comes off feeling like a Fast & Furious rip-off with planes. It's cool but just... not there.

 rated 2/5: decent
