Recommended Posts

Movie is also all over the place with different plot lines and Batmqn being evil which i hated cause Batmqn is my favorite 

And the Big 3 not standing together sucked

Well, in JL War, Superman was like a stereotypical high school jock, Wonder Woman was too warrior like, Green Lantern was too much of a cocky prick, and Captain Marvel (Billy Batson) was portrayed too much as an immature man-child.  Those are kind of stereotypical if you ask me.  Don't worry, I do agree with you that most of the JL members were shit stereotypes.

However, what I really hated was how much they nerfed Captain Marvel (Billy Batson).  I mean, I really don't bitch and complain about a character's power, but in this case I'll make an exception.  They made Captain Marvel very weak in the DC Animated Movie Universe.  That right there is so stupid.  I mean he is among the strongest and most powerful heroes in the Dc Universe.  I'd say he is in the top 5 if not top 3.  I know a lot of people consider Superman to be the most powerful superhero, but, it is arguable that Captain Marvel is just as powerful as Superman considering the fact that he has speed, strength, stamina, durability, and invulnerability comparable to Superman and other god-like superheroes and supervillains.  Get what I am saying?

That's because he was still inexperienced with his powers.  Remember, he didn't how to fly at first until Sivana dropped him from the stratosphere.

Anyways, that was my biggest complaint of JL War and one of my biggest complaints of the DC Animated Movie Universe so far.  Don't get me wrong, it is better than the DCEU (although I do like the DCEU quite a bit.  A lot more than you do actually.  No offense.).

Speaking of DC's Captain Marvel, did you hear his sequel has been pushed to April 2022?

That is what I meant.  Anyways, I can't wait for the sequel to Shazam!  I know I have to see Joker and don't worry I plan on seeing in the near future, but I have to say the best DC Comics film that I've seen within the past 10 years outside of Watchmen was Shazam!.

Hello True believers,

This is your boy MDCFAN101 here to give you guys a series of 3 special movie reviews here on the thread.  Starting today, I will reviewing a trilogy, a very special trilogy that I've held near and dear to my heart since I was a 7 year old boy.  A trilogy that made me the Spider-Man fan that I am today.  Ladies and Gentlemen, starting today I am going to be reviewing Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy.  Before I begin though, I want to remind everyone that these reviews are solely based on my opinion and my opinion alone.  For those of you don't know what an opinion is especially you low-life trolls out there, here is the definition of an opinion: a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.  Now that I've gotten that out of the way, on the reviews starting with the first Spider-Man movie from 2002.

 

Spider-Man (2002) - Review

The Positives:

  • The story is excellent.  It is well written, well detailed, and well structured.  I like the fact that the story incorporates elements from the comics, especially the mainstream Spider-Man comics.
  • The acting throughout the film is sensational.  You have Cliff Robertson & Rosemary Harris as Uncle Ben and Aunt May, Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson, James Franco as Harry Osborn, Elizabeth Banks as Betty Brant, Bruce Campbell as the wrestling ring/arena announcer, "Macho Man" Randy Savage as Bone Saw McGraw, Joe Manganiello as Flash Thompson, and J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.  However, the stars of the film, at least for me, are Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Willem Dafoe as Norman Osborn/Green Goblin.  I'll start with Mr. Willem Dafoe.  This man owned every minute of screen time he was in.  He portrayed the character so well, it was as if he took the character right from the comics and brought him to life on the big screen.  As for Tobey Maguire, I realize now that after immersing myself with so much of the Spider-Man mythos over the years, that while no exactly perfect, he still does a great job in portraying the character, especially as Peter Parker.  Even as a more experienced Spider-Man fan, I still hold his portrayal of Spidey near and dear to my heart.  As much as I love Tom Holland's MCU Spider-Man, I will always love Tobey Maguire's Raimiverse Spider-Man even more because his portrayal of the character in this trilogy, especially in this film, got me into the Spider-Man character.
  • Sam Raimi's direction.  Sam Raimi did an excellent job in directing this film throughout it's production.  You can tell he really understood not only the character of Spider-Man, but more importantly the world of Spider-Man as well.  He really honored the character of Spider-Man very well in the film.
  • The overall bright, colorful, and cheerful tone.  Superhero movies nowadays tend to be more dark, gritty, gloomy, and sad.  While I generally don't mind that, not all superhero movies have to be dark to be good and successful.  I'd say that this film and Shazam! are good examples of that.  Sam Raimi really understood that while making this film.  Plus, it really fits the character of Spider-Man.  Why?  Because Spider-Man overall is a bright and colorful character despite going through some dark moments in his life.
  • The CGI, visuals, special effects, and sound effects are still to this day top notch quality.
  • Danny Elfman's score.  Danny Elfman's score is still to this day catchy and awesome.  What can I say, I still love it.
  • While some Spider-Man fans had a problem with this, I on the other hand did not.  I loved the fact that Sam Raimi gave Spider-Man organic webbing in this universe.  First, it makes sense.  If an individual was to gain the abilities of a spider, that person should be able to spin webs.  Second, it feels more realistic.  Third and final, I think it adds something new, unique, interesting, and original to the Spider-Man mythos.  Don't get me wrong, I love the wrist mounted web-shooters.  They are without a doubt in my mind one of the greatest superhero gadgets/weapons of all time.  They do an excellent job in showcasing Peter's creativity, ingenuity, and his genius-level intellect.  However, Peter having organic webs just makes more sense for me is all.
  • The action and fight sequences.  They are absolutely amazing and extremely well choreographed.

The Negatives:

  • The problems I have with this movie are mostly just little things here and there.  What I mean is, there were some things I felt were rushed and underdeveloped.  Other than that, this film is a masterpiece.

Overall: Spider-Man (2002) is IMO an absolute classic and one of the best superhero movies of all time.

Grade: A+

@MDCFAN101

I agree, Dafoe is really talented. My favourite character & actor of that film.

If they wanted to know Spiderman's identity, could they get some spider-web and run a DNA-profiling, then just compare it to the person to see if it's really him?

Spider-Man 2 - Review

The Positives:

  • The story.  The story IMO was excellent.  It was well written, structured and detailed.  I also liked the fact that it implements some comic accuracies.
  • Sam Raimi's direction.  Once again, Sam Raimi does an excellent job in directing.  He once again honors the character of Spider-Man in this movie.
  • The CGI, visuals, special effects, sound effects, and animations are once again top notch quality.
  • The acting throughout the film is spectacular.  You have Rosemary Harris as Aunt May, Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson, Bill Nunn as Joseph Robert "Robbie" Robertson, Elizabeth Banks as Betty Brant, Bruce Campbell as the snooty usher, Dylan Baker as Dr. Curt Connors, James Franco as Harry Osborn, and J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson.  However, I must say that the stars of the film were Alfred Molina as Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus and Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.  I'll start with Alfred Molina.  He did an absolute masterful job portraying Doc Ock.  Aside from William Salyers' Doc Ock from the PS4 game, Marvel's Spider-Man, I have to say that Alfred Molina's Doc Ock is the best interpretation of Doc I've ever seen.  As for Mr. Tobey Maguire, he once again delivers an excellent performance.  As a matter of fact, I'd say he delivered his performance as Spider-Man, especially as Peter Parker.
  • Danny Elfman's score.  Just like in the first film, Danny Elfman delivers a beautiful soundtrack.
  • The action/fight sequences.  The action and fight sequences are awesome.  I have to say the best fight scene in the movie is the fight between Spidey and Doc Ock on the train.  IMO that fight is one of the best superhero movie history.
  • Just like the first film, this film possesses an overall bright and colorful tone.

The Negatives:

  • The problems I have with Spider-Man 2 are mostly just little things.  However, my "biggest" negative you can say is the scene of Peter losing his powers due to love sickness.  I sort of have mixed feelings about that.  While part one part of me understands the whole love sick thing, the other half doesn't like the fact that he had to lose his powers because of it.  Other than that, this movie IMO is a masterpiece.

Overall: Spider-Man 2, much like the first film, is a classic and one of the best superhero movies of all time IMO.  More importantly though, Spider-Man 2 is one of my top 5 favorite superhero movies of all time & my favorite Spider-Man movie.  Don't get wrong fellow Spidey fans, I love Far from Home,. Into the Spider-Verse, and Homecoming.  They are all amazing Spider-Man movies.  However, Spider-Man 2 in my eyes still takes the top spot among them.  Why you may ask?  Because Spider-Man 2 still gives me the biggest emotional attachment to the character of Peter Parker/Spider-Man.  One of the biggest aspects of Spider-Man's character is his constant struggle to balance his superhero career with his normal life.  This movie not only showcased that beautifully, but the best IMO.  What makes Spidey a special character to so many people is his ability to relate to readers and audiences more so than other characters.  Spider-Man 2 does that beautifully as well.

Grade: A+

Stay tuned for the finale where I review Spider-Man 3.  PEACE!

I watched the movie, and I also found this a bit of a stretch to add a bit of more flavour to it. But I guess this makes him more "human", and maybe easier to relate.

I also found strange how that mini-star/black-hole didn't cause more of a trouble, even in a controlled environment. Wasn't there people directly exposed to it, directly looking just a few meters away?

True, that part I can understand. However if you think about it, seeing Peter lose his powers to love sickness felt kind of stupid and weird.

Bad Education - Review (2020)

The Good
Cory Finley's direction is riveting 

Mike Makowsky's fantastic screenplay (who actually went to the school when all this took place apparently which this true story is so fascinating. )

Hugh Jackman gives one of his best performance of his career may even be his best who plays Dr. Francis A. "Frank" Tassone as Super Attedent who knows every kid in the school and remembers everyone who graduated and their dreams.

Allison Janney and Ray Ramano are also really great. 

The Story is very relevant since the College funding happen recently. 

The Bad
It takes 20 minutes for the story to really begin. 

The wierd dream like seguence in the film that kind of takes you out of the movie.

Final Thoughts: HBO Delivers once again with Quality content at being the best Channel for Content with this being another win and probably will give Hugh Jackman an Emmy Nomination, maybe even Oscar Nomination depending on how they do this. 

Overall Grade: A-

Extraction - Review (2020)

The Good
Sam Hargrave's direction in his feature debut really delivers on making one hell of a badass movie, crazy how this was the stunt coordinator for Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Endgame.

Chris Hemsworth's performance stands out to be one of the best he has ever given who elevates a pretty standard script with his charisma.

The Phenomenal Fight Sequences with amazing Choreography and Hemsworth's Physical Performance doing all the stunts

One Chase/Fight Sequence that was a one shot sequence for 12 minutes was a beauty to watch.

The Movie starts with a bang and never drags theres always something happening.

The relationship between Hemsworth's character and Rudhraksh Jaiswal's Character really worked and has a really sweet and touching moment in the movie.

Its ultimately a chase movie like The Terminator 1 and 2 with the one bad guy just chasing them nonstop.

The Bad
The Very Excessive Violence, but still entertaining at least i just know some people may say its excessive and repetitive.

Probably takes it self to seriously, like Hemsworth just dives off a cliff into water that should hurt but just mediates under water, but then it goes into extreme serious.

It has a very thin plot.

Final Thoughts: Extraction isnt a perfect movie, but its a damn perfect Action Movie that should not be missed on Netflix.

Overall Grade: B+

Capone - Review (2020)

The Good
The premise at least interesting just the exocution is bad.

Peter Deming's Cinematography

The Bad
Josh Trank's piss poor direction once again showing that Chronicle was a huge fluke, his direction is dull as hell.

Tom Hardy's awful over the top performance.

The uncomfortable story telling of Capone's final year.

You dont give a shit about the other characters like Linda Cardellini as his wife, Matt Dillon, and Kyle MacLachlan

The makeup on Tom Hardy is laughable.

Josh Trank's editing is fucking terrible.

The awful climax that is just a rip off of Scarface.

Final Thoughts: Easily one of the worst and laughable Gangster movies i have ever seen dont even bother.

Overall Grade: F+

The Wrong Missy - Review (2020)

The Good
David Spade isnt terrible. 

Roman Reigns for the amout of seconds he was in this was funny. 

The other cameo was quite funny.

The Bad 
Lauren Lapkus is HORRIBLE, Easily Razzie Contender for Worst Actress. Shes literally a fucking cartoon character, until the short sweet moments she gets but then goes back to her cartoon character. 

Tyler Spindel's awful direction. 

Kevin Barnett and Chris Pappas awful screenplay. 

Nick Swardson is always fucking terrible how hes in movies still is beyond me, hes just as annoying as Lapkus. 

Jackie Sandler cant act to save her life every word she gives is like shes just ready cue cards. 

Spade and Nick talking about Spade's Penis...........

The now shock humor that Happy Madison has been doing since joining Netflix continues and its still fucking awful. 

Same with gross humor. 

The awful montage sequence. 

Rob Schneider's cameo isn't funny compared to his latest cameos on Sandler's stand up and SNL. 

The CGI Shark which just feels out of place. 

It took an hour for the movie to hit the classic Happy Madison sweet heartfelt moment. 

Final Thoughts: Happy Madison continues to make horrible movies on Netflix this being headache to watch.

Overall Grade: F-

Scoob! - Review (2020)

The Good
Frank Welker as Scooby Doo is always gonna be great. 

Will Forte is no Matthew Lillard, but his Shaggy voice is easy to get used to through out the movie. 

The Sweet Prologue sequence with a recreation of the old Scooby Doo intro. 

Mark Wahlberg as Blue Falcon is so full of himself its hilarious. 

Jason Isaacs as Dick Dastardly is also fantastic. 

Zac Efron gives Fred actual personality and hes not always the leader in the movie where the rest get their moments. 

Amanda Seyfried as Daphne and Gina Rodriguez as Velma are also great. 

The story is really sweet with man and their dogs. 

The Animation is really great. 

Its basically a love letter to the classic Hanna-Barbera Animations

The Bad
The Simon Cowell cameo felt out of place. 

The music choices don't fit Scooby Doo

I would of still liked a normal Scooby Doo Mystery movie. 

Final Thoughts: Scoob! is quite enjoyable to fans of Scooby Doo, its not the best movie in hige history of the movies, but better than alot of the recent ones. 

Overall Grade: B+
