Movie Review - Avengers: Infinity War

07.17


Celebrating 10 years of Marvel Studios, the film is recognized to be the culmination of Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. The Avengers and Guardians Of The Galaxy must work together to stop the destruction of the universe by the mad titan A.K.A Thanos.
This film bring back the Biggest Hollywood stars like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Evas, Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen and many more.
Avengers: Infinity War directed by "the dynamic duo" Anthony and Joe Russo, who return to marvel studio after an unexpected Winter Soldier and a Massive Civil War on Captain America Trilogy. 
This time the heroes and all parts of the universe unite to stop Thanos (Josh Brolin), a creature from Titan who wants to destroy half the population of the universe. Thanos felt by committing genocide against half his population, the universe would be balanced and spared from extinction.
Thanos needs six infinity stones containing various elements and scattered throughout the universe to achieve his dream. At the beginning of the film, Thanos already has two elemental stones, and with the help of his loyal followers, Thanos tries to gather the rest.

Every earth mightiest heroes from The Avengers, Doctor Stephen Strange, Guardian of Galaxy keeper of outer space, up to the Black Panther and his troops on Wakanda, all trying to prevent Thanos getting all the stones. The superheroes finally meet and work together to stop Thanos plans. In fact, they have to go to the space far from where they live. 
To defeat the strongest enemies in the universe, much to be sacrificed. Although it has tried in such a way, in fact there must be a lost life to complete the greatest battle in this universe.
Infinity War offering the best story than its prequel, The Avengers and The Avengers: Age Of Ultron. High credit for duet writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely who geniuses behind this intense stories, flows well and produces spectacular shades. Not to mention the twist plot that appears several times and makes us quite difficult to guess the story line of this movie. Their brilliance is also evidenced by the challenge of the many characters in this film that they are balanced, not to mention the character of Thanos as a villain who now we called it as the most bad-ass villain of Marvel Studios.



Not about how evil Thanos, but his background, his motive, the obsessions and the dilemmas that make us admire the figure of Thanos at the same time asking about our own morals for admiring a villain. There is a slight tendency if this film is also more showing the superiority of Thanos than the Avengers, but that might be a plus point considering we are a bit bored with the heroes who are too easy to defeat their enemies, especially on Marvel movies.
Clever and self-aware, humour plays a big part in this sequel. The jokes are perfectly timed and great character combinations (Tony Stark and Doctor Strange; Thor and Rocket) balance the tone nicely. Caution: this is the darkest episode in the saga so far. But there are lighter moments and things never get too dreadful. This is a fun movie as well as thrilling.


Infinity War isn’t a perfect movie, a lot happens very quickly and some of the supposed main characters feel like cameos. Infinity War is under pressure to be the most exhilarating experience yet, but it sometimes sacrifices story for spectacle. Even Thanos (Josh Brolin) could do with a few more lines. For the most part though, this bonkers blockbuster is an entertaining and surprisingly emotional flick that will keep everybody happy.
There are also some concern though as the CGI movement is less smooth in some early scenes, the storyline is bit have a 'pacing problem', also the origins of the Black Order characters isn’t fully explored (understandable cause Russo Brothers must be required to save long duration).
Ambitious, very grand, intense yet bombastic and with a combination of almost perfect action sequences from every superheros. 9 of 10 is the most objective score we can give for this movie. With a variety of positive aspects and fantastic moment. Avengers: Infinity War is not only very entertaining and shocking but has a big surprise that breaks many fan theories.

Movie Review - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

01.57

The 15th film of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just released in bluray & DVD. Again, James Gunn is entrusted to direct this film. This movie, still starring the same cast, call it Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, tells of adventure the "Star Lord and the gang" in guarding the galaxy and then accidentally meets Star-Lord's father, Ego(Kurt Russell).

Three years ago, the Guardians of the Galaxy became a surprise hit with revenues of more than three quarters of a billion dollars from around the world. While superhero movies are usually built on self-serious topics such as personal conflicts or villains that threaten the world, the Guardians of the Galaxy brings them more cheerfully. Departing from an unknown superhero, now maybe some of the viewers instead idolize a cute tree monster or a raccoon that can talks. With such high expectations, the only way is go bigger, perhaps. We can feel that the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 seems to feel obliged to be more funny, more exciting, and more spectacular, which really does not matter if the movie does not try too hard



doesn't mean to say that this movie is no longer funny, exciting, and spectacular. The hilarious dynamics of the characters, the imaginative universe and the dazzling visual effects still exist, but now it feels a bit forced. Perhaps realizing that his movie were no longer fresh and had lost the shock effect, Gunn doubled them all up. I think there is a certain dose for jokes, plots and characters that can be loaded in a movie.


But is it bad movie? No, the script written and worked on by James Gunn, is still good enough. The storyline is not easy to guess, the plot is not too rushed, intense actions while punctuated by the humor of the characters, some easter-eggs successfully delivered quite well by Gunn. Characterization in this movie is quite good and strong enough. Each character gets a portion of a fitting appearance in this movie. And the new characters are well introduced to have their own ties with Audience


The Action sequences involves a marvelous special effects. Not much director can be like Gunn in making explosions and
overload special effects that still feels entertaining despite its hectic composition. The planets, new places, and some characters are very well illustrated through the CGI and visual effects. Coupled with a beautiful cinematography from Henry Braham, successfully convey the visual message contained in this movie. The climactic scene contains many explosions. Gunn is also able to lift the classic superhero movie moments, including some of cinema clichés like the romance between the protagonist and "hero shot in the slow-motion", not look so cheesy.


Just Like the predecessor, the good value of this movie also come from the soundtrack of this movie, Awesome Mix Vol. 2. The classic songs from around 1980's were composed by Tyler Bates, the Music Composer of this film. A good selection of songs in each scene successfully bring a very fun tone for this movie. Even the opening scene of this movie is much better and fun than the first Guardian Of The Galaxy.


Although the second film of the guardian of the galaxy is no more fresh than before, guardian of the galaxy vol. 2 has a powerful ending that can even be regarded as the saddest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie ever watched that makes this movie quite complex, with the theme of romance, friendship, and kinship that was delivered well by Gunn.

Movie Review - Annabelle: Creation

07.16

Three years after the first movie, Annabelle doll spread the terror once more through the second movie titled Annabelle: Creation. Annabelle: Creation is a prequel of the first movie released back in 2014. Annabelle: Creation will reveal the origin of the most iconic horror doll, Annabelle

The story of Annabelle: Creation begins with a tragic accident of Bee (Samara Lee), the only daughter of a couple who works as a doll maker named Samuel Mullins (Anthony LaPaglia) and Esther Mullins (Miranda Otto). 12 years after the death of Bee, Samuel and Esther invited a young nun named Charlotte (Stephanie Sigman) and 6 orphan girls lived in her home Two of them were Linda (Lulu Wilson) and Janice (Talitha Bateman), a little girl whose legs were disabled by suffering polio.


One night, Janice found a cabinet that turned out to contain an Annabelle doll. Since then, the odd incident have become more frequent. The doll's terror made the inhabitants of the house frightened. Annabelle's dolls began to haunt the inhabitants of the house one by one, the spirit inside Annabelle dolls also threaten their lives. 

Annabelle is now back with different formula after got a mixed review in the first movie. Now Annabelle is directed by David F Sanberg, director who has succesfully direct Lights Out, horror movie that had succes last year. Whether it will be the same with Annabelle: Creation?? 

In the of hands of David F Sandberg, Annabelle seemed to rise with new hope. Annabelle: Creation looks much more convincing than the predecessor's. David managed to build an intense tension of the audience with great combination of cinematography and accompaniment music. Annabelle: Creation doesn't allow you to rest cause of the jumpscares appear tightly, even when were not ready.


Although this movie doesn't bring the ranks of Hollywood actor and popular actress doesn't mean it can be underestimated. Powerfull and stunning performance is here through the acting of Talitha Bateman and Lulu Wilson as Janice and Linda. Both are capable of acting naturally. 

In addition to the historical flashbacks of Annabelle doll, the film also features an important clues that connects other movie in "Conjuring Universe". It Features many easter egg of the upcoming movie such us The Nun(2018) & the third film of conjuring.

Annabelle: Creation offers a new hope for the next movie of The Conjuring Universe, even with "cliche" plot with gimmick, when it produced by James Wan, its perfect for horror movie lovers.

Movie Review - Captain America 3 Civil War

05.24

Best movie on Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Hands Down.
There is a doubt that the Russo Brothers, regardless of what they managed to accomplish with  fascinating Winter Soldier, will not be able to summarize the action of war between superheroes so phenomenal it into a movie that does not end up merely as a fan-service. This is a movie that not only will load almost any superhero that had already been introduced through the Marvel movies and Avengers solo, but also two new superhero who finally got into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). That in the end, they will inevitably, have to sacrifice what makes Winter Soldier so incredible two years ago. But fortunately, none of these concerns occur. Civil War is an exceptional superhero movie that will make you fall in love and placing it as one of the most favorite in your heart. You will end up nodding your head after tasting it directly.


Civil War did a great job because of the ability of the director and scriptwriter for dispensing a consequence concepts and motifs in proportion so fit and rational. We all understand that it can not be easy to ensure 10 superhero characters are merged into one same space could end up to be the focus of attention. Always there will be sacrificed or end forced. But not in the Civil War. Prowess is a success to ensure that all these characters have a portion of the story so memorable, yet so important moments that make their role more shining and not just end up be a cameo or supporting characters who have no contribution at all on the side of the story. This makes their motivation to fight and siding with either side - Team Captain America or Team Ironman into something rational, something you can understand, and may end up to be something that you support the fullest. The result? When the big moment arrived and the "Civil War" that happens, you managed to see each of these characters as different individuals with different motivations.

Storytelling of Civil War is just one of the reasons to fall in love with it, because on this movie, we think, is also worthy of the title as one of the superhero movie with a ''CRAZIEST'' battle scene so far. You might remember the scene of the fight Thor and Ironman in first Avengers? Or when Hulk Buster with Hulk trying to keep anger in Age of Ultron? Or when the Falcon against Ant-Man in the Ant-Man solo movie? Now imagine the same sensations, you multiply 10-fold with all the Avengers characters directly involved in it. Sound crazy? Indeed, as crazy as it was and as cool as imagined. 


Captain America: Civil War ended with the title ''best Marvel superhero movie'' so far, at least in our eyes. Almost all the elements you would expect from the name of "Civil War", regardless of whether you are a fan of the comic series or not, executed so sweet here. What do you like about Winter Soldier enhanced with a strong story line that is able to ensure every Avengers characters involved in it is departing from a motivation that can be trusted and understood. Super epic fight scenes that will make you smile like a child up to the introduction of two characters - Black Panther and Spider-Man were also executed by the sweet will make you satisfied when a list of credits has surfaced in sight.
