Terminator Genysis

Terminator Genisys

Da-dum dum dum da-dum!

Apart from very bad spelling, I think this was a fun story. Lots of clichés from the original Terminator story, but still loads of fun.

Apart from a totally defenestrated timeline, zero character development and seemingly lacklustre acting, I think it’s still a fun story. It has some old humour that only die-hard Arnie fans would understand.

All in all, if you’ve watched all the other Terminator stories, why not go ahead and enjoy this one. But if this is your very first one, I would go and watch the first Terminator before catching this one.

I give this story:

6 killer robots out of 10 killer robots

Jurassic World

Jurassic World

 

OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!

The is ultimate! 

Awesome new monsters! And this time, the raptors are on our side!

There’s a new monster in town, and it’s hungry!

And I’m not just talking about the big awesome whale thingy that ate the shark in the trailer!

It’s so awesome! I can’t believe how many exclamation marks I’ve used in this review!

This is definitely a winner!

I give this story:

88 teeth out of 88 teeth! 

 

 

Chappie

Chappie

The story was told well enough, and the pace was well done. It’s a story about a boy who is not a boy, and meets all sorts of people while growing up to quickly.

Hmm…

Sounds like the story of Pinocchio. There’re lots of similarities.

But ultimately, it’s a story about good and evil, innocence and experience, intelligence and wisdom.

It’s a story about Chappie.

I give this story:

5 batteries out of 7 batteries 

Paddington

Paddington

This is a story of a very, very lucky young bear who escaped a natural disaster to end up in a modern disaster. I just can’t believe how lucky he can be! Almost to the point of un-un-un-un-unbelievable.

But, it’s a story. It’s meant to be like that.

It’s enjoyable enough, if you’re a bear.

The main gripe I had was the ending. I think the antagonist deserved a better ending than depicted.

I give this story:

4 marmalades out of 7 marmalades

Mad Max – Fury Road

Mad Max - Fury Road

This is a very entertaining and action-packed story.

I didn’t expect it to be so good. This is one story I don’t mind watching again.

I have watched the original Mad Max story a long time ago. So long ago, that my memory of it has faded. But this Mad Max is good. Really good.

There are fantastic road chases. There are powerful vintage cars and bikes and trucks. There are explosions, oh so many awesome explosions!

This is definitely a winner.

I give this story:

8 V8s out of 8 V8s

Monsters – Dark Continent

Monsters - Dark Continent

I regret watching this story.

This story was a complete waste of 2 hours of my time.

This is actually the second story. I have seen the first one, and it wasn’t too bad.

This second one? Avoid at all costs!

I give this story:

Zero tentacles out of 100 tentacles

Avengers – Age of Ultron

Avengers - Age of Ultron

There’s simply too much hype for this story. But then, something of this proportion deserves that much hype.

The story of the story is so-so. That much is true.

But the telling of the story. *gasp*

So much action, so much effects, so much speed, so much intrigue. And did I mention, so much action?

I only have one thing to say. Don’t wait for the end of the credits to finish. There’s nothing there, which was the only disappointment I have for this story.

I give this story:

6 Avengers out of 6 Avengers

Fast and Furious 7

Fast and Furious 7

So, this is the 7th story in a line of fast machines. Not much magic in this story.

But there are a lot of fast stuff: fast cars, fast action, fast combat, fast food.

There’s even a Bugatti Veyron in the story, but strangely enough, it played an extremely minor role. I was so sad.

Anyway, it was still an exciting story.

I give this story:

1 Bugatti Veyron out of 3 Bugatti Veyrons

 

Cinderella

Cinderella

Wonderful story! 

Although this is yet another re-telling of an age-old rags-to-riches romantic classic, it is refreshing to see the story unfold again.

Magic is in the air. Love is in the air. Evil step-sisters are also in the air.

I really enjoyed this story and would watch it again.

I give this story:

2 glass slippers out of 2 glass slippers
