Rambo Last Blood : Review

Rambo Last Blood : Review

The plot is very simple Yvette Monreal (Gabrielle) searches for her abandoned father. She learns that her father is living in Mexico with the help of her childhood friend Sheila Shah (Alejandra). Gabrielle goes to Mexico in search of her abandoned father and confronts Marco de la O. He rejects her and it upsets her. To get the mood right both the girls decided hit the pub. Alejandra sells Gabrielle to a woman trafficking cartel.


Gabrielle Uncle Sylvester Stallone (Jhon Rambo) realizes that his niece went to Mexico to see her father. He then quickly rushes to Mexico and starts to enquire about his niece starting from her father. Her father replies that Gabrielle was not with her. Then Jhon Rambo goes to Sheila Shah and asks about her niece with a sharp double edge knife on the table.

Sheila shows the person to Jhon Rambo who she sold her friend out. Stallone breaks his ribs with a bare hand by punching a hole with his fingers to get answers from the cartel guy. I can't watch this scene. The white bone-cracking from his ribs are clearly shown in this scene. I don't know whether a regular-sized human being can break a bone with his bare hands and fingers. But you will be convinced that Sylvester Stallone can do with ease.

He found that the cartel is run by Hugo and Victor Martinez. The Martinez brothers traffic woman to the United States. Jhon Rambo asks for her niece by showing her photo. The Martinez brothers and another 25 guys beat up Rambo like hell. You would normally expect Sylverstone to fight and win that fight scene by kicking all of them, but he loses.

From now on the story makes you feel some kind of pain that is hard. You don't want your hero in the to feel helpless. Rambo lies in a coma for four days. Meanwhile, the cartel guys inject a regular overdose of drugs to Gabrielle. The next short fight scene to save his niece. Sylvester knocks with claw hammer makes you so uneasy and suffocate in your seat. Only the strong-hearted can actually see it with eyes open.

When Sylvester bangs a cartel guy in the head with claw hammer you can actually see the skull crushers and actual brain of that guy. Even though all that stuff is computer graphics you can feel the pain of the bad guy and the painful emotion that was carried by the Sylvester is amazing during the scene. Rambo eventually rescues her and takes to home.
But it happens and Rambo's niece dies in halfway to home due to overdose drugs.

Rambo couldn't take that. He seeks for revenge. With the help of an investigative journalist, he took one of the Martinez brothers head off. The other brother tries to kill Rambo. Rambo being Rambo he prepares his house for war against a Mexican cartel. Rambo fills his hand dig tunnels with the booby traps and waits for bad guys.

The Mexican Cartel guys fell in the booby traps set by Rambo and die one by one. At Last finally, Rambo uses his signature bow and arrow to hold the other brother and kills by slicing his heart out his chest. To watch action scenes you need a good brave heart. The computer graphics are way more violent to watch. The exact pain experienced when the man is suffering was perfectly captured by the director. If you are a human being who can't watch chicken die in front of you in the butcher's shop before cutting into pieces. You shouldn't watch the movie at all.

This movie is just produced just to end the Rambo series. If you are a fan of Rambo and you are expecting something like previous Rambo movies its better watch old movies than this one. No rememberable action sequence, Same old revenge storyline, and same old climax fight.

I expected from this movie is a good thrilling action experience, but I came out of fear of slicing my heart out of my chest.

Just Hakuna Matata: The Lion King


Recently Disney is recreating it's all-time iconic animation movies from the '90s. What I don't understand is why they can't find new stories that are as interesting as the old movies. In the remake also they are not improving much. Few of them are Alladin, Beauty and the Beast and now The Lion King these movies are pretty much same.

The Lion King is directed by Tony Stark’s driver, Jon Favreau, who was the director for Iron Man 1, 2 and the Jungle Book remake, which is the only live-action Disney remake I really liked so far.

So everyone knows the story of the 1994 Disney animation right? It’s basically about a pack of lions that rule an animal kingdom they call the Pride Lands. And somehow there are only three male lions in the whole place. One of them named Mufasa is the leader of the pack and the king of Pride Lands. His evil jealous brother, Scar, wants to take his place but the next in line is Mufasa’s son, Simba.

Scar attempts to murder them both with the help of a pack of hyenas who’re basically outsiders and at war against the lions. And there begins the journey of little Simba who must survive and grow up to be the king he’s born to be. In case any of you young ones have never seen the 1994 animation or Kimba, I shall not spoil it.

Is it better than the 1994 classic? Apart from the visuals, no.

Although I wouldn’t call this a “live-action” remake per se, the visuals are truly photo-realistic. The animals look very real and some of the animals even move like the real thing. They’re adorable. Baby Simba is extremely cute. But they are not expressive enough. There’s a lack of facial expression.


And when the characters talk and sing, their mouths don’t really move accordingly. And I don’t really feel like dialogue is coming from them. It’s just like watching the animals on the National Geographic channel.

Without the voice acting, we wouldn’t know what they’re thinking, feeling and even doing at times. Most of the vocal performances are good but still nowhere as great as the original.

Not sure why they could get the original voice of Mufasa, James Earl Jones, back but not the others such as Jeremy Irons who definitely sounded far more menacing and compelling as Scar than Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The new renditions of the music are good too but the new song Spirit by Beyonce, I’m not sure. Sounds like a weird version of Circle of Life to me. Her voice as the adult Nala is meh. Almost anyone else could’ve done the same. Donald Glover and JD McCrary are pretty good as an adult and young Simba.

But the ones I really enjoyed were Pumbaa and Timon, voiced by Seth Rogan and Billy Eichner respectively. They are genuinely hilarious and I laughed the loudest during that one scene where they referenced another Disney film’s character and song. They are like the best thing about this remake.

Only minor changes were made to the characters like the hyenas being less annoyingly stupid now. The rest of the characters and the story are pretty much identical to the original but without substance.

The development of the main characters and their relationships are much, much weaker. Maybe it’s due to the lack of facial expression from the photorealistic characters or perhaps the execution of the interactions are rushed. I can’t quite pinpoint the reason.


Even the iconic emotional scenes are nowhere near as powerful as the original. And I haven’t rewatched the original again since I was a kid so this remake had fresh bullets to hit me with the heartbreak but it failed. The only feeling I got was a bit of nostalgia perhaps.

In overall, this remake is not as good as the original and again, like I always say, what’s the point of a remake if it’s not going to improve much from the original apart from showing off the current visual effect capabilities?

Nonetheless, I did like that they address a few things well like why other animals agree to be ruled by lions even though they do eat them. I like that the lions are thinner for a reason. Keeping the balance and not overhunting are the responsibilities of the ruler. But Scar still looks skinny years after he’s overfed. And the hyenas towards the end… some things just didn’t make sense to me.

But anyway, just Hakuna Matata while watching it and you’ll probably still enjoy it.

Set It Up (2018) A Movie You Should Watch



set-it-up-poster Set it up (2018), American romantic comedy movie  film directed by Claire Scanlon, written by Katie Silberman.

   CAST
PLOT
 The plot follows two hard overworked assistants who try and set up their demanding bosses on dates. The film was released on June 15, 2018, by Netflix.

 Harper (Zoey Deutch) is the 25-year-old assistant to Kirsten (Lucy Liu) a former journalist and now editor of an online sports journalism empire.

 Charlie (Glen Powell) is also a 28-year-old assistant to the high-strung Rick (Taye Diggs) who works in finance. Both work in the same building and meet one night when their bosses need dinner.

 Harper has ordered dinner for herself and Kirsten but has no money to pay for it and Charlie, who has waited too long to order food, pays for it to give to Rick. After Harper tells him she will be fired if she doesn't return with food Charlie reluctantly allows her to take one of the meals.


 Meeting Charlie the next day to reimburse him for the cost of the food, Harper expresses surprise that Charlie would work for such an abrasive and demanding boss. Charlie reveals that Rick is well-connected and a recommendation from him would guarantee his financial success.

 Harper expresses her deep admiration of Kirsten and her desire to write the sort of sports journalism that would make people cry. After complaining that they have no time for personal lives, Charlie jokes that both of their bosses need to get laid.

 Harper is initially disgusted by the comment, but after some thought agrees that she and Charlie should Cyrano their bosses, reasoning if they are dating each other they would have less time for work. Charlie reluctantly joins in on the plan.

 Their initial plot to have Rick and Kirsten "meet-cute" in a stalled elevator goes awry when they are joined by a delivery man suffering from claustrophobia who strips the second the elevator is stalled.

 Charlie and Harper then arrange for their bosses to sit beside each other at a baseball game, bribing the operator of the kiss-cam to pressure them into kissing. After three attempts, Rick and Kirsten kiss. They begin dating, leaving Charlie time to spend with his model girlfriend Suze, and Harper time to date.

 However things between Rick and Kirsten quickly become bumpy causing Harper and Charlie to realize they must work hard to keep their bosses together.

When her date ditches her, Charlie goes with her and the two have an enjoyable night dancing and eating pizza. After their vacation, Rick and Kirsten return and inform their assistants they are engaged.

Harper and Charlie are thrilled by the news, but Charlie quickly learns that Rick proposed to Kirsten to aggravate his ex-wife whom he is still sleeping with. Charlie doesn't share the news with Harper, but she discovers it after accidentally hearing Rick having phone sex with his ex.

She confronts Charlie with Rick's cheating and is disappointed to learn that he knew about it and that he plans to help manage Kirsten and Rick's marriage so the cheating remains a secret

. Harper goes to Kirsten and explains that she and Charlie manipulated them into dating. Harper tries to say that Rick is cheating with his ex-wife, but is unable to say this because Kirsten promptly fires her and plans to go on with the wedding.

 Charlie takes Suze to an expensive restaurant and realizes they don't love each other. He breaks up with her and runs to the airport where he quits his job and tells Kirsten that Rick doesn't love her and doesn't know her at all. Kirsten realizes it's true and breaks up with Rick.

 Harper goes through a crisis but eventually decides to start writing again. Charlie is approached by Rick who asks for his help reuniting with his ex-wife whom he actually still cares for. Charlie turns over a folder he has on Rick's ex-wife.


 Kirsten calls Harper back to her office and offers to hire her back, but Harper refuses, telling her she needs to focus on her writing. Kirsten offers to help edit her article.

 As she is leaving, Harper sees Charlie who has been called there by Kirsten. They realize that Kirsten is attempting to set them up. Charlie reveals that he quit his job and now works as a temp.

 The two of them realize they have many reasons to dislike each other and yet they are still attracted to each other. The film ends with the two sharing a kiss, after realizing how much they care for each other.


      


REVIEW

The romance comdedy genre has pretty much died off in the past decade or so. There are occasional moments where it rears its head, but for the most part, too many stale entries rendered it into self-parody, and because (gasp) it wasn’t directed primarily at young men, the only demographic, worth serving for Hollywood, there wasn’t much of an impetus to make more.

 Thankfully, Netflix doesn’t have to worry about those trends so much and can appeal to “niche” (if you can call one of the most popular genres for decades a niche) audiences, which they’ve done so perfectly with Claire Scanlon’s Set It Up.


 Although it plays by the standard beats of the romcom, it still stretches with witty jokes and outstanding performances from its lead actors. Set It Up doesn’t reinvent the genre as much as it reminds us why we missed it so much. Set in a world where every executive treats their assistant like garbage, we follow two such beleaguered assistants.

 Harper (Zoey Deutch) is an aspiring journalist who has become stuck working for the brilliant but vicious Kirsten (Lucy Liu), a celebrated sports journalist who runs her own media empire. Charlie (Glen Powell) works in the same building and for the callous, petty venture capitalist Rick (Taye Diggs). After a meet-cute of their own, Harper and Charlie conspire to set their bosses up together.

If their bosses are off having sex, that gives Harper and Charlie the free time they so desperately crave. However, as they spend more time conspiring, Harper and Charlie start to fall for each other.


  set-it-up-taye-diggs-lucy-liu-600x400.jpg  

 If you’ve seen a romcom before, you can pretty much set your watch by how Set It Up will play out. But playing by familiar beats isn’t a dealbreaker when you play them well. Katie Silberman’s script knows how romcoms go, but it’s filled with so many clever jokes and witty repartee that you won’t mind that you can see the twists and turns coming from a mile away

. We watch thrillers to be surprised; we watch romcoms to be comforted, and you could wrap Set It Up around you like a warm blanket. The movie doesn’t want to surprise you, but instead remind you why you dug romance comedy in the first place without being painfully self-aware or constantly winking at the audience.

It’s not trying to deconstruct the genre, but rather remind us why we fell in love with it in the first place. It doesn’t hurt that the film has two heavy hitters with Deutch and Powell. I’ve been a big fan of their work in previous films (Deutch for the underrated Vampire Academy, Powell for his small supporting turn in Hidden Figures, and both in Everybody Wants Some!!), and they both get a chance to shine here.

 It’s not that they’re channeling other romcom stars as much as they find their own chemistry and approach to the characters. If you told me tomorrow that Deutch and Powell were signed up for a series of Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan-esque romcoms, I’d watch every single one of them.

Deutch always bring a bit of an edge to her characters that stops them from being too bubbly, and and Powell is debonair and comes right to the edge of being too cocky. They’re both stars waiting to happen, and hopefully Set It Up is a boon to their careers.


  set-it-up-zoey-deutch-glen-powell-600x400  


 The film doesn’t hold together perfectly (as it nears the second act turn and the conclusion, it starts to falter a bit with choices that don’t really support the characters’ personalities), but it’s strong enough to remind us that the romcom genre is far from dead as long as talented people continue to invest in it.

 Hollywood may have decided that there’s no room for romcoms, but Set It Up shows there’s plenty of life left in the genre when you’ve got strong writing, sharp direction, and killer leads. If you’re looking for a date night at home, you need to add Set It Up to your Netflix list right now.

 Rating: B
