Movies / TV Shows!

Ok, just for Claptrap :p
Wonder why making a live-action when the "cartoonish art style" is what's make Borderlands franchise great....
Beside, I watched few episodes of Avatar The Last Airbender and maybe not be a popular opinion, but meh... the series simply join my list of live-action series/movies which feel pretty weird compared to their original animes :(

Dont have TV. Gaming is better. But.. Space Station Alpha, Sapphire and Steel, X-Files, Farscape. Farscape was really good. Same level as Babylon 5.

I thought the remake of Last Airbender was alright. Not great, but alright. Sometimes I think I might be the only person on the planet who actually liked the 2010 film.

This weekend I watched Bulgasal (I'm guessing there's a reason that they didn't call it Bulgasari ??). Other than the strange decision to turn the Korean monster into a vampire, I thought it was really good.

Yeah, I really wanted to like the live-action - mainly because I do like the cast - but I honestly felt that the writing let it down. I don't think there's much sub-text to the dialogue and it just felt sort of rushed. Whereas the cartoon progresses and "grows" very organically. I mean it's ironic how the writing for a children's cartoon feels so much more sophisticated than a live-action version trying to feel more... serious? Plus I think the young actors needed better acting and voice support. Ken Leung was brilliant though and I don't know how that man isn't swimming in acting nominations at this point (I mean, to act that well with sub-par material is pretty bad-ass).

Thinking back to the cartoon though, one of the things that always really impressed me was how childish the very first episode is and how grown up the finale is, yet the progess in between is so gradual you don't even notice it. I don't know if that was a stroke of genius or a happy accident but either way it's one of the reasons I think that show is one of the best pieces of television ever made :)

Yeah, the live-action version didn't quite hit the mark for me, especially with the writing. It felt rushed and lacked depth compared to the cartoon. Ken Leung was a standout, though.

Looking back at the cartoon series, it's amazing how it starts off all childish and ends up so mature by the finale. The progression is seamless. It's definitely one of TV's hidden gems
 
Hmm...

Titled "The Hunt for Gollum".
Doesn't sound like a particularly interesting concept to me. Gollum seems oddly popular these days.
Probably because Andy Serkis did such a phenomenal job portraying the character. But even when the books were fairly new, there seems to have been a fascination with the character. I guess it isn't surprising to see the same thing with a new generation who know the works mainly from the movies.

I won't be watching it though, or any other LoTR related movie where
Peter Jackson
is involved. Not going to explain why, because it would start an endless war.
 
Godzilla Minus One unexpectedly showed up on Netflix this weekend. I guess that they were keeping it as surprise, because I didn't see it anywhere in their announcements of upcoming shows.

What an awesome movie. Hopefully the new Godzilla / Kong Empire movie will stumble through theaters quickly, so we can get another proper Japanese Godzilla movie. I'm guessing that it will just be named "Godzilla" ??
