Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV

Well, i like that kind of things, nothing special about the story, but the realisation comes better and better.
Because it's impressive technicly and graphicly talking, because the plot is common... 8/10

First 12 minutes can be seen here

Official Trailer can be seen here

Castle (2009-2016) TV Series.

I've been marathon watching this for a week & just started season 6. I like the series & would give it a 9/10 rating. The character interplay is great. Production values are great. Direction is great. The stories are occasionally a bit over the top, but I haven't seen an episode yet that didn't make me laugh out loud, either because of the snarky dialogue, the romantic banter between Castle & Beckett, or just the surprise twists in plot. I find it to be one of the more entertaining long term series I've watched.

I am totally enamored & in love with Stana Katic, who plays Detective Beckett.  :-~

Watched Mechanic: Resurrection (2016)  last night. Not as good as I'd hoped. I never realized what a terrible actress Jessica Alba really is. Statham's action was as good as ever, but there wasn't as much as I'd have liked. Overall, it was OK, but not close to the first one or any of his Transporter films.

Spoiler Block
Her emoting was so insincere I had assumed she was faking it to trick Statham's character, but it turned out, she's just bad at it.

My wife & I watched the 6 episode miniseries, The Night Manager (2016), starring Tom Hiddleston & Hugh Laurie, over the past 2 nights. It was much better than I expected & if you're into drama/thrillers, this is good & not something that will require a large time commitment, like a regular series.

Sully (2016)

Stars: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney

I'm planning to see Sully, but because Clint Eastwood directed, not because of Tom Hanks.

That's good to know Fog as I just had an awesome deal on the Blu-ray and bought it because I love mini-series and this one looked pretty good. I'll probably watch it sometime this week.

Good to know CT as I'm also planning to see it, and also because of Tom Hanks not Clint Eastwood.

Mechanic: Resurrection
If I the action valued 6 points but the rest (and especially the first 30 min.) 4 points ... unfortunately not a good continuation. So I give 5/10

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

Postby ctaulbee » Dec Sat 17, 2016 7:32 am

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans alternate realities and times, he uncovers a secret refuge known as Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As he learns about the residents and their unusual abilities, Jake realizes that safety is an illusion, and danger lurks in the form of powerful, hidden enemies. Jake must figure out who is real, who can be trusted, and who he really is.

Release date: September 30, 2016 (USA)
Director: Tim Burton
Stars: Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Samuel L. Jackson, Judi Dench
Box office: 277.7 million USD
Budget: 110 million USD
Novel: Ransom Riggs


The latest from Tim Burton would seem a tailor-made fit based on his tastes but one would have thought the same thing about "Dark Shadows," and we recall how that turned out. I think it was too uninspired and convoluted to qualify as artsy while at the same time, lacking mass appeal due to dull mythology and excessive explanatory dialogue, sans any real thrills. Ultimately it falls somewhere in the middle, the yuck factor is fairly high but the humor is wry and misplaced and the old-school effects combined with CGI battles just can't bring it all together inside a plot line riddled with holes and a marked shortage of backstory. Overall it felt rushed and condensed and while some of Burton's peculiar genius shines through at times, for the most part I was left wanting it to be far better --think Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands.
