Okay, a while back we discussed Justice League and The Transporter Series. Today I’m looking to gather your thoughts on Avengers Infinity War, the Mission Impossible series, Schwarzenegger’s The 6th Day, Fury, Hacksaw Ridge and Shawshank Redemption. Yes, it took me til 2020 to finally give those films a try. I mean I only like my movies to be over 2 hours long if its like Harry Potter or Jurassic Park... and well, these are not that and shouldn't have been near 3 hours long. Anyways, there will be spoilers, so if you haven't seen some of the above, feel free to skip around to the ones you have.
#1 AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
When i heard the title, I automatically thought of Buzz Light Years “TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!” Little did i know they’d actually be in space for most of the movie. But ig the pic below hinted at that. Speaking of spoilers, DO NOT SPOIL ENDGAME.
Its bad enough they spoiled what happens to Tony... but i could care less since he was never a fave character of mine. #Yepisaidit ...I mean, I admit that Iron Man 1 and 3 were good. I just can't stand his smartass mouth and the know-it-all vibe he gives off... He’s a cocky bastarddd but ig its expected from a genius 🤷♀️ Then again, i also didn't care for that cocky corny cussing-way-too-much Deadpool lmao #DontHateMe or do...
I honestly prefer the individual films because with Avengers, I have to watch multiple times before i can finish. The first i had to watch three times, the second i had to watch twice... I mean Infinity War was done in one sitting but only because i needed to clear the DVR for Mission Impossible 🤣
Then again, I dont even finish Thor’s individual movies which goes to show looks aren't everything... and I could hardly finish the first Guardians film... I also wasn't crazy about Black Panther’s solo film although i loved the soundtrack and adored his sister... but aside from those, I like everyone else’s individual films, especially Hulk and Captain.
IN MY OPINION, Avengers Infinity War was like a 6/10 compared to the 9/10 Captain America Civil War 🤷♀️ Civil War kept me on the edge of my seat with all the Ooohs and Aaahs plus Buckeey and Black Panther made it 10x greater. I actually got pissed that Hulk hardly came out in Infinity War. I get it was part of the “been trying this long to contain my temper” storyline but ughh 🙄
I’d say Infinity War had like 6 good/memorable moments...
- #1 Gamora going going gone. Dude was savage af throwing her off a cliff like that. Would’ve been a good time to turn into Colombiana 💀
- #2 Pratt was rollin in jammin to my song the Rubberband Man 🎶💃
- #3 Dr Strange looks like a hot frat boy when he does that tap tap boom to bring out his weapons 💪
- #4 Strange looked silly af giving up the stone after all that dang hard work and fighting
- #5 Samuel L Jackson finally died before he could say his annoyingly infamous MF line
- #6 My babies buckey and spidey turning to ash... oh yea and rip to whoever else died
Tom Holland always gets me to tearin up.. He’s not the best Spiderman IN MY OPINION, but he's such a good actor and i loved him in The Impossible and In the Heart of the Sea... he‘s always make me cry. Thank lord it didn't take Captain. Aside from those three men, i could care less for any of the other characters 🤣😂🤷♀️ Well then again, i was kinda hurt that Mary Kate and Ashleys sister died cause i always see redhead Mary Kate when i look at her... plis Her death made me miss my baby Quicksilver who died in Ave 2... Rip 😭🙏
#2 MISSION IMPOSSIBLE series
I think i was forced to watch this in kindergarten but could never grasp it. I love the song though... but isn't that the same one on the Incredibles 🤔 No matter how horrible y'all thought The Mummy remake and Knight And Day were, i personally found those more interesting than his MI movies.
I watched these films all out of order: MI5, MI1, MI3, MI2, MI4, then eventually MI6. I finally gave it a real shot when Rogue Nation came out. That one was definitely a fave but i feel this series is overrated. I just watched Mission Impossible 1 and 3 last week and I loved em 😍🙌
For starters, anyone who thought a powerful actor like Jon Voight would die so easily at the beginning is nuts. Couldnt even get rid of the mf in Ray Donavan 😂 And anyone who thought Steve Tyler’s daughter would die during a Mission Impossible can DREAM Ooooon!! 🤣 I think my fave scene in MI3 was when Michelle had to work the gun while Ethan was knocked out cold. She was killin em boyyy!! And then he woke up like WAIT WHO DID ALL OF THIS? DID YOU DO ALL OF THIS 😂💀
By the way, I tried watching MI2 but it just was not clicking... i got a bit bored and totally started writing this mytake While it played in the background. Dougray Scott was better in the Ten Commandments cause this villain ish just ain't it... Ghost Protocol is coming on later this afternoon and will hopefully be better. One thing that gets me tho is the dang mask off, mask on. I never know when to believe who is who in these films cause they somehow all got face masks of eachother.
#3 THE SIXTH DAY
Man, I love Will Smith but Gemini Man sucked. The CGI was horrible and I just wanted it to be as great as the 6th day. Man i love me some Arnold Schwarzenegger, especially in Commando, Escape Plan, Jingle All the Way, End of Days, Kindergarten Cop, Twins, Junior, and Terminator Genisys (lmao the only film in the series i saw). Tony Goldwyn and Michael Rooker always make excellent villains. But All i can say is that this movie was way ahead of its time. Imagine having to watch a clone of yourself screw your spouse. Maaan we would’ve been fighting.
#4 HACKSAW RIDGE
When i watched these two last week, I also watched The Hurt Locker but i can’t say it was the “bomb” like these two. Fury and Hacksaw Ridge gave me the chills like Lone Survivor, Unbroken, and Red Tails. Hurt Locker was more like American Sniper or Pearl Harbor. It was okay at best. And I don't know why Hawkeye was giving me those Jeffrey Dahmer vibes again.
I love Andrew Garfield. In my opinion, he's an underrated actor. I was impressed with him in Amazing Spiderman 1 (cause part 2 was just awful) and Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus (although it took 5 watches for me to realize that was him). 🤣🤷♀️ Just like Tom Holland, Andrew is really good at crying.
The character did hella more then I would’ve done cause at some point, i would’ve chosen to save myself over my crew... and that is part of why i know im not built for the military 🤦♀️ Also, i couldnt have been as forgiving of my abusive dad as he was.
The only part i hated about the movie was his name. Like i’ve dated so many guys with that name and i just really didn't wanna hear it being said every 10 minutes. Shoot, it even gave me nightmares that night 💀
I was torn so many ways rooting for all my babies— Brad Pitt, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Shia Leboeuf because I know they wouldn’t all survive.
Logan Lerman was definitely the star for me. I mean he was good as Percy Jackson but he reeeeally gave me a Tom Holland-worthy performance with his acting in this film. As for his character, lmao I don't know why he thought he’d get to be the next Doss of Hacksaw Ridge 😂 Like nah man, here they’re gonna make you pickup a gun lol.
Brad’s character really made me mad in this film and i actually wasn't sad about what happened to him. He ironically kept saying that Logan would get the crew killed. Surprisingly i didn't cheer when Shane got killed off but man i couldnt stand that MF on Walking Dead. And dang they killed off Clint Eastwood’s son like it was nothing 🤣 He was about as irrelevant in this as he was in Fast 8. But what happened to Shia really hit me hard... Overall, this movie just had too much unrealistic stuff going on. Cause that shootout at the end... come on now 😒
#6 SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION
Now i love Stephen King films. Tim Robbins has always starred in good movies. Morgan Freeman is everything 🙌 But i actually dont have much to say about this film. I gave it a try after my King question where a lot of you recommended it. I don't know, to me it was like another Avengers Infinity War. It had its moments. I started not to watch this 3 hour movie because #CelebrityWatchParty had spoiled its ending last week (...love that show by the way). The insinuated prison rape scenes in the film kept ticking me off but i was glad that the guards werent as bad throughout most the film as i expected.
Honestly, #FeelFreeToList below what we should discuss regarding some of these films cause im drawing a blank atm lol.
