Can't Think Of A Title For This Post

It's getting harder and harder to find the time to watch movies these days, so you'd think my criteria for the films I DO get to watch would improve, right? Like, I should probably make the decision to ONLY watch movies that have a chance of being actually good, and to stay away from films I've heard are terrible. Right? Right.

But where's the fun in that?

Besides, adopting such a sensible attitude to movie-watching would have robbed me of the delight of realising that two films I expected to be absolute rubbish turned out to be surprisingly good fun. Let's take the first one— a sequel to one of the worst films I've seen in the last few years.

GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra was an awful film. I mean, it was just dreadful. It was so bad that I felt compelled to talk about it on this very Blog, way back in 2009. Here is what I said about it:

"I now hate this movie, for it is awful. It is worse than X-Men 3. It is even worse than Transformers 2. I have not hated a film so much since I saw Van Helsing. Van Helsing was directed by the same man. There are lessons in life I should learn, and yet learn them I do not."

Ah, good times. This was back when I was writing Dark Days. What a fantastic book that was.

Sorry, where was I? Oh yes.

The first GI Joe was horrible. It had a stupid story and stupid action and stupid characters and everything was stupid. It had the worst CGI I'd seen in a long time and they'd taken a monumentally dumb approach to the whole thing. They gave the Joes super robot suits, for god's sake.

So naturally, knowing how much I hated the first one, I went ahead and watched the sequel. And maybe it's because I expected it to be every bit as bad— but it was actually pretty cool.

The story was still dumb. COBRA'S ultimate plan was just daft. But there were so many cool bits in it. The ninjas on the mountain. Adrianne Palicki jogging. Cobra Commander's AWESOME outfit. Adrianne Palicki in the red dress. Bruce Willis and his house of guns. Adrianne Palicki doing stuff.

And the two best scenes were between the Rock and Channing Tatum. The video game and the sharpshooting. Funny writing, funny performances- if every scene was as good as these two, it would have been an amazing movie. As it was, it was fun, action-packed, quite stupid, but there is NOTHING about it you'd hate after watching it.

Oh, but there is ONE moment I should mention. To show how high tech the Joes are, they're given all these cool gadgets at the start. One of these gadgets is a pair of gloves that MELTS THROUGH a chainlink fence. Melts THROUGH it! How awesome is that?? No more waiting around for the extra few seconds while they cut through the fence with stupid, old-fashioned fence cutters! No way! Now they save VITAL SECONDS by using these gloves! And the best thing? THEY GLOW BRIGHT ORANGE! So instead of dumb soldiers cutting through a fence with stupid fence cutters in the dark, being all sneaky and stuff, now the Joes can cut through the fence and alert any enemy within a five mile radius to their presence at the same time! Yippee!

(But apart from this moment of dumbness, it's not a bad movie. I swear.)

And the other film I thought would be awful was Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

I heard this was diabolical. It's not. There are parts of this that are SO COOL. The witches are the best witches ever in the world EVER. They're evil and hideous but no two are alike. The make-up is brilliant. Famke Janssen is the head witch, and it takes guts to turn one of the most beautiful women in the world into a hideous monster, but they do it, and she's utterly brilliant.

It's a lovely idea at its core— what would Hansel and Gretel be like when they grew up?— and while it's set in a vague time, hundreds of years ago, the language and the music are modern day, which adds to the anarchic quality of it all.  That said, the American accents sported by Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton are a tad distracting, especially seeing as how everyone else has a thick European accent. But come on... Renner's cool and Gemma Arterton is Gemma Arterton. Mmmm Gemma Arterton...

Word of warning, though. This looks like a family film, like a slightly dark fairytale, but it's not. It revels in bad language and gore. There are exploding heads a-plenty. So naturally I loved it.


I don't know if I'd ever watch either of these movies for a second time, but they were pretty damn good the first time out. Which was a really nice surprise.

HI DEREK

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

I plan to see Hansel and Gretel, actually. Not the other ones, though, simply because I don't feel like it.

Dragonheart said...

3rd! I want to see Hansel and Gretel, but I need to find a time when my younger brother isn't at home...
P
Plus, hey peoples!

Agent Thalia Cooper said...

Hansel and Gretel is sooooo good. It got a lot of bad reviews but it's literally exactly what it looks like on the tin: hot leather-clad twins shooting witches with Gatling guns and getting covered with blood and gore. And it's amazing.

Raechel Hudson said...

The only reason I liked the first GI Joe was because the 9th Doctor played the bad guy ^_^ And Hansel and Gretel was pretty poor in my opinion. Sure, the effects were cool, the guns were fantastic (if a little unbeleiveable) the witches were awesome, but the story - the story was way to simple! I guessed each and every thing that happened so easily. And then the movie was over. It was so short! I felt a bit ripped off actually :(

Can't wait for Last Stand of Dead Men by the way, Derek. So excited!

Dragonheart said...

Hi people!

How is life?

Right now I'm mad because BBC hasn't released the 50th anniversary DW trailer to the public, only to comic con attendees.

Suspense is killing me.
:D

WarZone said...

later guys, im reading WWZ, the book is great, gtg, pe time

Raechel Hudson said...

I think I would read WWZ before I watched the movie. I've been hearing that the book is way deeper than the movie.

Dragonheart said...

Adra - you put my thoughts into words.

Other than that, I'm good! Summer's kind of boring, because all my fav tv shows and books don't come out 'til the fall.

WarZone said...

the book is way deeper, its amazing, i need to read the last new jk rowling books next

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Dragon, it's because I have impeccable timing

Dragonheart said...

Adra, haha yes, you do.

War, I heard the new book was great! I feel bad for her though, because she was writing with a pen name that got leaked by one of her agents or publishers or something. She was really mad.

Raechel Hudson said...

Do you think she wanted to know how well she'd do without her Harry Potter fame?

Autumn Shift said...

Hansel & Gretal awesome movie !! U got damn good taste in movies Derek!

Dragonheart said...

Raechel, I think she wanted to start over, and have her writing be acclaimed without the fact that people are reading her books because she's a famous success story. If that makes any sense.

Dragonheart said...

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! Sorry, I'm bored. So what's new in blogland? I haven't been in the comments section for a while.

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

*grins* YOURE GOING DOWN TESLA

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Ahah. HAHAHAHA

Aretha Tesla said...

Um... What just happened? Did I do something?

#ChaseForBook9

Thrust Ominous said...

YEAH

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Um, no. Just what Dragon said


And the other commenrs

Raechel Hudson said...

Yeah, sorry, hi again Dragon. Dad asked me to go help put the new trampoline together :P
As for what new in blogland, I've been writing a lot on my blog /shrug. Lot's of new fantasy short stories based on games of Dungeons and Dragons that I play with my friends. One of the characters is actually named Dragonheart! :D

Thrust Ominous said...

lots of movies with terrible ratings are actually good. Like Superman. Lots of movies that are given high ratings are actually stupid. Like, this one movie that I saw.

So now my brothers and I go by this rule and we're probably going to see the lone ranger anytime soon.

Aretha Tesla said...

Well, Dragon, roleplaying made a rapid, dramatic comeback, but that started causing a huge division in Blogland, and a few people left and the rest of us are trying to figure out how to fix everything again.

#ChaseForBook9

Dragonheart said...

Raechel - Really? *grins* That's awesome!

Thrust- I wanted to see superman, but my friends told me it was terrible, so I'm waiting for the ondemand release.

Dragonheart said...

Tesla- wait, what?! That's a bit not good.....

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

No it isn't... Everyone is kinda upset and hurt

Raechel Hudson said...

Dragonheart - Want to read some?

All my favorite fandoms have been arguing lately. :/
On g+, one of the Sherlock fandoms had a massive blowout on posting Johnlock shipping pics.

Honestly, we're all fans, and we're all friends, so we should all be able to get along and compromise.

Dragonheart said...

Raechel- sure! :)

Raechel Hudson said...

Dragonheart - Awesome! Please don't be shy about commenting too. I love all forms of feedback. I may one day publish all the shorts in one big book (hopefully). But at the moment I think I'll just concentrate on my real novel, Soulless. You can see the synopsis for it on my blog too if you want ^_^

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

Nyehhhhh Ari where'd you go :3 I wanted to see the epic conclusion!

Msd

Aretha Tesla said...

*sighs* Yeah, no kidding. It's definitely not good. We're... We're just trying to work it out.

#ChaseForBook9

Dragonheart said...

Well, hopefully things will work out ok. It makes me sad because we're all here to discuss about a series we enjoy, so why get mad at each other. Its much more fun when everyone gets along...

Raechel, cool! I'm going to do it tomorrow though, cuz I'm going to bed.

Niccolò Croatoan- roleplaying said...

Pleasure to meet you as well. May I ask where you were before you came here? Merely out of curiosity, of course- I have had little social interaction for the past 500 years, yet even I am familiar with the practice of shaking hands.

#ChaseForBook9

Leandro Rayburn (Snow) said...

( what do you think of this story???

A Hat Like No Other

There once was a hat.
But this hat was not like any other.
This hat was of remarkable design.
And this hat sat on a blond head.
The face underneath the hair had blue eyes.
The rest of the face is beautiful, carved from stone.
The skin looks slightly waxy.
This man wears an exquisite suit, expertly made.
This man has magic running through his veins.
Even though this man has no veins.
He is a skeleton.
His skin looks waxy because it is magically generated.
This man, this skeleton, is the best detective in Ireland.
Maybe even the world.
And this is what makes this hat special.

:D)

The Empress Elder Lady Adra "the Ducktor" Dark said...

... I was being serious. That place was serious sketch.

A guy came up asking for money and kept pressing. Stupidly, my brother took out his wallet and I knew that he was about to take it... Lord knows what else. ARGH.

So, let's take a head count,
Potential murderer
Drug deal
Potential mugger
Transvestite drag boy scantily dressed

And just a lot of sketchy people.

Hey, Adra- I wrote a few chapters about me being imprisoned in Alastair's mind for MC, and I'm wondering whether I should write a new one for Nameless Attempt or repost the ones I've already written. What should I do?
