Posted : 14 years, 6 months ago on 2 June 2009 09:40 (A review of Terminator Salvation)

This is just a thrilling movie, with plenty of action during for almost 2 hours, and it lacks of everything that the other movies of the franchise had. It's difficult to consider Terminator Salvation a science-fitcion movie, McG concentrates all of his efforts - and time - in explosions and gun fire. The main problem with the movie comes when it tries to make statements about what "makes us humans" meanwhile we watch the main character pulling a gun trigger all the time. This movie could be considered a military version of Spielberg's War Of The Worlds, although it could seem a weird comparison. Moreover, McG's direction efforts remember quite a lot to Spielberg's.

Dragon Fall

Posted : 14 years, 8 months ago on 2 April 2009 11:05 (A review of Dragonball Evolution)

It's called evolution because it's not exactly the same as the Tv Series. We see its main character - Goku - studying at school, with troubles with his classmates. That can be offensive for any fan of the TV series, but Dragonball Evolution must be analyzed for its own. And it's a ridiculous movie that could be considered a mix between Shaolin Soccer and Volcano High. But in this movie there's no fun, no good action scenes, and the special effects may have been created by a newbye with Adobe AfterEffects.
Moreover, the story is quite silly. Everything that was interesting in the Tv series has been pulled out, and the new script has added things like an eclipse or an story about a "chosen".
The TV series fans will feel dissapointed and insulted, but any other spectator will walk out of the cinema asking who are those characters disguised like retro-fashion victims... and why that green guy wants to destroy things.
