Movie night!

♪♫ Let’s all go to the lobby, let’s go all to the lobby, let’s all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat ♫♪
Finally a use for that music anyway, Hello everyone, this post will be about my thoughts on a few of my favorite movies I’ve watched over the years.

1. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Let’s get the easy target out of the way first, I really love this movie, they did a good job adapting 6 books into a movie, yes there are many differences between the two, including the absence of some characters, adding new things to the story while replacing some previously existing ones, everything was so shortened even the course of the story was, in the books Scott took a couple of months to actually defeat the League of Evil Exes while the movie was only a few weeks the experiences are different, differences aside, both of them good in their own merit, I’m really glad I’ve watched this movie, it introduced me to this amazing series that will never be forgotten by me.

 

2. Her

I really loved watching that movie, the love between human and OS [Operating system] was a bit weird at first but after a while it felt like watching a real long-distance relationship between two people, I fell in love with Samantha, her character was built with so much love and care it’s impossible to not feel like there’s an actual person by Theodore’s side during the whole movie.
As a concept for future technology, it isn’t far off,  having a multi-platform OS with a personal assistant like Samantha is already a reality with Windows 10 and Cortana and MacOS/ IOS and Siri, while neither of them are quite as advanced as Samantha,  I can imagine Microsoft and Apple are trying to perfect them in manner it’ll be pretty similar to what we’ve seen in the movie, excluding of course the whole romantic interaction.

3. Hardcore Henry

A video game movie done right, and it’s not even based on a game so they really nailed this one, I’ve never seen a movie that actually had a first person perspective before it never really felt out of place, the point was the mimic the gameplay of a FPS and it certainly feels like it, added with the violence and the parkour it makes the movie a very enjoyable ride if you aren’t a fan of violent movies, you should stay clear of this one, It felt like watching a over an hour long cutscene, an amazing cutscene but still…
Watching this made me want to play a violent FPS, too bad my laptop can’t run Doom (2016).

Conclusion

Looking back at those movies they really have a few things in common with one another, it’s kinda funny drawing some similarities to completely none related movies, I guess this is how people do those movie theories you see online, I highly recommend watching these movies, you may or may not enjoy these, but as the saying goes, different strokes for different folks, whatever the case is I hope you enjoy the next movie you watch and let me know if you have any recommendations for a next movie night!
