Assasin’s Creed movie review! (Spoiler Free)

Picture not mine.

 

First off, I have never played the Assasin’s Creed video games. I do however know about them and have only been familiar with them from seeing the commercials on TV and Youtube for years. I am not a gamer of any sort. I only went to see this movie because it generally looked good and I was curious all these years about the storyline and plot of it. That being said I am coming at this movie from a sight of not knowing anything about the game.

I liked the story a lot actually. I felt the whole Assasin’s lifestyle was pretty intense but really great. I enjoyed the special effects and the costumes were awesome. I loved their hoods and gear so much! Fassbender was really good in this movie. I also enjoyed seeing Jeremy Irons who I love as an actor and human being. I did have one problem with the film and that was the noise level. Whoever did the sound editing must have not paid attention to the volumes or something because when they would talk when Cal was hooked up to the machine you could barely hear anything they actors were saying at all. The music was way too loud! Don’t get me wrong the music was amazing and I loved it but it caused me to go wait what did you say half the time. I almost wished I could have rewind the bit, so I could actually hear it properly haha. I think when it comes out on DVD I will have to buy it just for that reason.

Overall it was a pretty decent movie. I liked the fighting scenes, costumes, and actors. I enjoyed it and I liked the storyline enough I might just look into the games and compare it to the movie.

Rogue One: A Star Wars movie review {Spoiler free!}

I really did enjoy this film. However, I will say it was quite slow at the beginning. It felt a little draggy in some places.As far as characters go I loved Jyn Erso who is definitely a strong female character and its a nice placement in the Star Wars Universe. I liked how she didn’t play by anyone’s rules but her own. Cassian was quite likable even at first I was hesitant to like him, but he was okay with the ending. It also helped that he was adorable! haha. The android K-2SO had a lot of lines that were really funny.

I liked how this film explains a lot of the stuff we have not seen before. I enjoyed seeing certain people that we have seen before in the past Star Wars films and yes the ending made you want to rewatch episode 4 (A New Hope) to remember and now watch it with new eyes! Highly recommend seeing it if you have not already 🙂

Seen Rogue One? comment down below your favorite character, but please no spoilers!

My review of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.{caution spoilers}

I loved the film so much!! It gave me chills just seeing the WB with the ominous clouds that I grew up seeing right before the Harry Potter films again. I think David Yates did a wonderful job directing. Although I will say it was slow at the beginning of the movie, however, I understood why it was that way. I mean were being introduced to characters we’ve never met and they had to set the setting and time frame so I will give them that.

On to the actors in the film! I thought Eddie Redmayne was absolutely Fantastic! haha, see what I did there… no okay moving on. Anyway, I loved him in the movie. He did a great job as Newt Scamander. Colin Farrel, Ezra Miller, and okay the whole cast was awesome.

I thought the movie was great. I liked being back in the Wizarding World and learning new things like what went on in America. I liked all of the creatures in the film. My favorite beast was Pickett the Bowtruckle. He was too cute. I also loved the Niffler. He was a scene stealer for sure. I thought the cgi was amazing on the beasts, who looked so real and life like.

As for theories I have seen going around and after me reading them for hours and days, oops. No shame! Call me hungry for more. If you have not heard already the Fantastic Beasts series will continue on and in total, there will be 5 movies, so four more to come for us to sink out teeth into. On to the theories!!  In one I read that Ariana Dumbledore might have been an obscurial just like Credence Barebone was as we saw in the film. Theories say that that was the reason Dumbledore’s mother was killed. They believe that it was Ariana’s uncontrollable actions that caused the mother to die in a terrible accident . There was another theory that Voldemort could read people’s minds like Greenie could in the film. They explained why he always knew what they were planning or doing. It kind of seems far fetched,but I am not saying it’s not true,but until more proof comes up I will be looking into more theories.

How did you like the movie?? answer in the comments and include any other theories you found because I love reading those 🙂

 

 

My spoiler free review of The Magnificent seven!

First off I am not that into western films so when my family wanted to see this film I was a bit apprehensive, but then I remembered the commercial I saw and it looked good and on the plus side it has Chris Pratt in it so I ended up going to see the movie. I was pleasantly surprised with the film. It was really funny and witty. Denzel and Ethan Hawke were superb in this. Definitely need to get oscar nominations for the film. They should get an oscar nomination for the movie itself as well. It’s a group of great actors and it was intense and a whole lot of fun at the same time. There was never a dull moment. The story was easy to follow and I had never seen the original movie either so don’t be turned off by the fact that you have never seen the other versions of the film.I thought Chris Pratt was super funny,and I thought he was a nice edition to the movie.

I would definitely get the DVD or see it again because it was that good.

My Finding Dory spoiler free review

Finding-Dory-Disney-pixar-2016

Film Synopsis: Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them. Her journey brings her to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses diverse ocean species. Dory now knows that her family reunion will only happen if she can save mom and dad from captivity.

 

Let’s just say I’ve waited along with millions of other adults like myself for Finding Dory to come out.Its been a long wait!  13 years later to be exact. Finding Nemo came out in theaters in the year 2003. I was in middle school at the time. Anyway on to the review. I loved this film because it had heart, made you laugh, and was totally adorable. I liked seeing Dory, Nemo, and Marlin as well as some newly added characters to the story. I found myself laughing, crying, and overall pleased with my viewing of Finding Dory. I really want to see it again and for sure get the DVD when it comes out. Let me just say baby Dory is everything! so stinking cute 🙂  Be sure and see this movie if you have not already because it is fun for the whole family.
