My Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and Vol. 2 Movie Review

Resultado de imagen para guardians of the galaxyResultado de imagen para guardians of the galaxy

So Today I bring you guys my super late review to Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and Vol. 2. Now I must say that these flicks really captured the spirit of the source material and ran with it, just adding a ton of things to it in a way that actually impacted the Guardian of the Galaxy comic book series in a positive way especial after the first movie came out. James Gunn has embraced the scale, the bizarre, the absurdity, the adventure and the dangers of Marvel's cosmic universe, the man has done his homework the level of detail and his love for really obscure characters has created a fascinating world chucked full of Easter Eggs and fan service, that what's I'm going to focus on in this double review and breakdown.


Now I mashed these two reviews because I am a freaking lazy fuck and I'm going to center on the growth of the characters from one movie to the other, but I'm not going to analyze the plot directly but there will be a ton of spoilers.

•    Starlord / Peter Quill (Chris Pratt): I love the characterization of Starlord in both movies even though he's pretty Deadpoolish, with his wit, sarcasm and pop culture references being very present, which are not as present in the comic until this movie came out, at least at this level. In the first flick  Starlord bands together a motley crue of space rejects, that ends up evolving into a high dysfunctional family/space hero team, filling the void that Quill had ever since he lost his mother to cancer and never met his father. After surviving ticking off Ronin the accuser and squabbling with his foster father Yondu and his ravagers, both over the same the reason, an intergalactic relic that turns out to be an infinity stone/gem. In the second flick, Starlord meets his father which turns out to be Ego the Living Planet and discover his place in the universe. It just fantastic to see this character development in both movies.
•    Gomora (Zoe Zaldana): Surprisingly these movies made me care for Gomora, humanizing her, she isn't just a fighting/killing machine, she has issues. In the first flick, she breaks away from the control of her foster father Thanos, not wanting to be his assassin anymore and discovering the beauties of friendship with Guardians, while trying not to be killed by her sister Nebula. In the second flick we get into some deep cuts into the relationship that Gamora had with Nebula, all the messed up stuff Thanos made them do. At the end of this movie, we have Nebula and Gamora resolving their differences.
•    Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista):  These movies also made me care for Drax, just like Gamora he was just an unstoppable fighting machine. The way he is written in both of these movies is incredible, the way he can't understand the context in language and his certain level of innocence just made this character my favorite and funny as hell.  Especial in the second flick he establishes a very funny and profound relationship with Mantis that I just loved. And I really hope in the third movie it would dive in more into his backstory.
•    Groot (Vin Diesel): He's actually just like he is in the comics, but baby Groot in the second movie almost steals the show.
•    Rocket (Bradley Cooper): Rocket is also pretty much like in the comic, even though the director is able to make you care for him more because he's always trying to hide his softer side by being an asshole most of the time. In the progression of both movies, we get a Rocket that matures emotionally, to care for his friends and not be such a dick. You know I've recently realized the Rock actually take the same role that Pip the Troll did in the Infinity Watch team that played the same role that the Guardian did back in the 90's
•    Mantis (Pom Klementieff)  Joins the team in the second flick and I love her interactions with Drax. They did a fantastic job making me care for a character that in the comics is pretty uninteresting.  
•    Kraglin ( Sean Gunn): Character shows potential for the third flick. 
•    Yondu Odonata (Michael Rooker): The director James Gunn did something incredible he made one of Marvel lamest characters, Yondu into one of the coolest characters in the MCU. Yondu in the first movie is Quill's foster father and leader of a group of intergalactic mercenaries/pirates called the Ravagers. Yondu had commissioned Starlord to retrieve a relic for a client but Peter goes A-wall. So Yondu puts a bounty on Starlord's head and sets the Ravager out to capture him, but when the shit hit the fan with Ronin Yondu sides with the Guardians of the Galaxy to save the Nova Corps home world. Now in the second flick, we discover that Yondu had always protected  Peter Quill, from his father Ego. Ego had commissioned the Ravagers to kidnap Peter Quill from Earth and bring the boy to him, but Yondu hid the boy when he found out what Ego had planned for him.  

•    Ronin the Accuser (Lee Pace): This dude is the villain for the first flick and even though he hell-bent on destroying the Nova Corps home planet using an infinity gem that he had taken from Starlord. Sadly this villain is still as one-dimensional  as he is in the comics.
•    Nebula (Karen Gillan): Nebula sort of sucked in the first movie, not much to her other than that she wants to take Gamora down for her daddy Thanos. But in the second flick, she gets a ton of character development, we discover how Thanos used to torture both girls and pit them against each other. They actually made me care for this character that I've never given a shit about.
•    Korath ( Djimon Housou): This minion of Ronin from the first movie looks nothing like the character.
•    Thanos (Josh Brolin): Marvel Please deliver with Infinity War. 
•    Ayesha and the Sovereign: Villains in the second flick, they played it safe in not calling these aliens the Sovereign and not the Universal Church, but I loved the Arcade drones and how they set up the creation of Adam Warlock.
•    Taserface ( Chris Sullivan): I was totally surprised that this character actually existed in the Guardians of the Galaxy lore, my hat goes off to Gunn for digging up this obscure character from the 90's series. I just loved his faceoff with Rocket.
•    Ego ( Kurt Russell): I never liked this villain, he seemed super stupid, but Gunn actually made this character work and does fuse this villain with an elder of the galaxy called the Gardener, and that was a nice detail. Him being the father of Peter and what he had planned for his own son, made him into the total d-bag villain so I loved to see him be clobbered by Peter. I liked they didn't go for the comic version of Starlords dad, which is a pretty uninteresting character.

Sporting Cast:

The Collector (Benicio Del Toro): Del Toro actually made this bland character interesting, even though his basic function in the first movie is for the exposition of what the Infinity stones are. Thanks to his role it impacted the comic book character and is much cooler now.

Issue Summary:
Repercussions and Lasting effects:
•    The franchise seems to have affected the tone of the Third Thor movie Ragnarok. 
•    Adam Warlock is coming.
•    Old School Guardian for the third flick?¿?¿

The Bad:
•    Ronin was as one-dimensional as you can get with a villain, he was pretty bland.
NO Silver Surfer fuck you FOX

The Good:
•    Both soundtracks with some really interesting tracks Gunn did a fantastic job putting both sound tracks together, I discovered and rediscovered a shit ton bands.
•    The Color and Detail of this universe, even with the over saturation of FX and CGI in movies nowadays, both these movies impressed me especially the second move that just takes things up to another level of craziness.
•    The characterization of all of the Guardians and Yondu is just fantastic, I loved how they reworked Yondu powers.
•    Ego was a ballsy but fantastic choice for a villain in the second flick.
•    We get the classic Guardians of the Galaxy lineup being lead by Starhawk Stallone, fuck yeah life is good.
•    Stan Lee works with the Watchers!
•    These movies have a shit ton of heart.

Rating Vol I: 9 out of 10  VolII: 9.5 please bring Major Victory and Cormo on the team for the third flick.

Spider-man: Homecoming

Resultado de imagen para spiderman homecoming
Finally the perfect Spidy flick, this movie surpassed all of my expectations. I'm a happy nerd, and today I bring you guys my brief review and breakdown of this motion picture. I'm not really going to dive too deep into the plot because there are a couple of fantastic moments and surprises that the trailers didn't spoil, but just in case DANGER SPOILERS. The focus of this post will especially center around the characters. 

oh here's a link to my youtube video on the Vulturre: My kickass youtube video of the Vulture

Spider-man/ Peter Parker (Tom Holland): Tom portrays the perfectly Spidy and Peter Parker, it's like the comic book character literally jumped on the screen. We have a young Peter growing up dealing with teen issues and his responsibilities as a hero. Tom plays as the perfect underdog that just doesn't know when to give up, confronting impossible circumstances.  
Iron man / Tony Stark ( Robert Downey Jr.): I enjoyed Tony's role in the movie, and from my point of view there is a missed opportunity to have Vulture take him down and have Spidy save him to prove that he's a hero for the big leagues.

Vulture / Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton the dude who did Batman): The movie reinvents a classic but not very interesting Spidy villain, into a dangerous and somewhat scary badass, and the flick establishes a motive for him and his minions that one can actually understand and identify with.
Shocker: Meh, pretty redundant.

Sporting Cast:
·         Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau): He has the job in keeping an eye on Spidy and obviously he does a bad job at that, which means some pretty funny moments.
·         Michelle Jones MJ( Zendaya): Sort of confused with which character she is, but her antisocial characterization is interesting.
·         Aaron Davis (Donald Glover): Character opens the door for Miles Morales.
·         May Parker (Marisa Tomei): Meh

Repercussions and Lasting effects:
·         Spidy turns down Tony in becoming a full-time Avenger.
·         Scorpion is coming.
Another Spidy Armor for who ¿?¿

The Bad:
No  big issues
The Good:
·         Some kickass action, well passed, with good suspense, it had me white-knuckled a couple of times.
·         They nailed Spidy's banter, and general humor in movie is great.  
·         End credits: The  Ramones.
·         Karen and insane web shooters.
·         Some deep nerd cuts with Damage Control.
·         This incarnation of the Vulture is by far the best ever.

9.8 out of 10, Director Jon Watts you have made the best Spidy flick ever.

Movie Review Suicide Squad

Resultado de imagen para suicide squad
Suicide Squad 

So finally got my hand on the Blu Ray of this DC film to see it for the first time, and to my total surprise it really let me down, I had seen the animated DC feature had made some time ago that had a kicked ass plot, while  this movies story was totally meh. I must note I'm not a DC fan but I really want to see their movie universe grow and I have a soft spot for some of DC's villains, especial anyone from Batman's Rogue Gallery, because  I grew up watching Batman's Animated series.
So we go with my stupid review and breakdown centring around the character, and I must note I'm not getting to much into the plot but there will be spoilers.    

·         Deadshot (Will Smith): Will nails it, I loved Deadshot, please give me a spin off  or make him appear in the next Bat flick.
·         The Joker (Jared Leto): Sorry but ¿What the fuck? Jared actually brings the viewer a interesting take on the Joker, but he's severally underused in the movie, the character participation is really choppy, it shows off the  mess of the movies edition. I must not this movie would have been much better if you had the Joker being the one behind Enchantres going rogue would have been super cool, it would make more sense because it would force the Squad to act so he could get to Harley, which je does anyways at the end of the movie.
·         Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie): She is just perfect, her craziness brings in that unpredictable factor that this character has, but ¿why ditch the mallet for a bat?  
·         Rick Flag ( Joel Kinnaman): Not to interested in this character but  he has a interesting dynamic with Deadshot.
·         Amanda Waller (Viola Davis): The way Amanda Waller handles  Enchantress from the start to the end is just lazy writing with too many holes, the whole crisis was her fault but she is not held accountable for it or recognizes that this is her blunder and she actually kills her own men, she does not have any evolution as a character.
·         Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney): Please give me a DC/Marvel crossover, Captain Boomerang vs. Deadpool the battle for the unicorn.
Please make a DC/Marvel crossover flick Captain Boomerang vs. Deadpool
·         El Diablo ( Jay Hernandez): Interesting character never seen him before, liked his internal conflict and his flaming hulk god  battle was pretty cool.
·         Killer Croc (Adewale Akkinouye Agbaje): There could have been more Killer Croc-ing.
·         Katana: I have her Heroclix , but I know nothing of the character, I like that she only speaks in Japanese.

·         Batman: Batman is a dick taking Deadshot down in front of his daughter.
·         Enchantress (Cara Delevingne): She like DC version of Malekith from Thor's dark world, she just wants to destroy everything but we get very little motivation for what drive the character.

The Bad:
·         Man the plot starts of promising and drifts into totally generic.  What the hell happened to the Joker, why did they promote this movie with this character that has so little screen time, it really feels like a cash grab.
·         Enchantress in full power mode becomes a super generic "let's bring the end of the world".
·         Choppy edition, it's a mess and the movie has pacing issues, my 10 year super nerd daughter got bored at a moment.
·         I did like the music, but they throw to much at you, Guardians of the Galaxy does a much better job at incorporating pop songs in a sound track than this flick.
·         Enchantress has freaking  generic minions, they never feel like a threat to the Squad, and is it me or do they look like the putty bad guys from Power Rangers.
·         Why do Harley and Deadshot get two intro in the movie, it doesn't make sense.

The Good:
·         Loved the characterizations of the Squad Members.
·         I did like Jared's Joker

Overall: 5 out of 10
