So I intended to post quite a few times but a lot of things have been going on. I do intend to start posting regularly from now on.
I have watched so many things since my last post I wanted to just touch a bit on each.
First I saw White House Down in theatres, and it was better than I expected. Jamie Foxx was outstanding and not that I want to see him typecast, but I would love to see him play the president again. He had a down to Earth, yet almost regal quality about his demeanor and stature. Tatum was, as he is in every role, not good. I tried to give the guy a chance but he almost talks his way through entire scenes. Overall, the movie was fun and engaging. White House Down gets a C+, almost fully on Jamie Foxx’s acting.
I also saw Pacific Rim. I came into this movie expected great visuals and not much else, but the story was fun and the acting was on par. I know forums online have been having arguments about possible connections between this and Evangelion. As a fan of Evangelion, I can assure you there are quite a few scenes that could have come directly from Evangelion. The movie has quite a Japanese vibe to it and not just because of the giant robots. There was also a nice surprise appearance which got a vocal response out of me. I do not want to ruin it though. I have to say, it was a very enjoyable. There was something for everyone. Great fights and my inner anime geek give this movie a B-.
Television has also been on my viewing schedule. I started watching Popular, Under the Dome, and the second season of The Newsroom. All 3 are good in their own way. I cannot say much else about any because I have not seen enough. I will make it a point to say I really enjoy Olivia Munn’s character in The Newsroom even more. She is showing growth and if she keeps her attitude from last season I can see her becoming my favorite character.
That is all for this post. Next week I will hopefully be getting more in-depth with a manga and another thing I have yet to choose. So be sure to visit next Saturday! Thank you.
