Ender’s Game – A Review of Sorts

I’ll make this brief:

Pure shit.

That is all.


The Human Race – what the hell was I watching?

February 10, 2014

20140211-020854.jpg

To say The Human Waste Race is the biggest bunch of c*nt I have ever watched would be an insult to c*nt, disregard the sincere efforts made by the people responsible for the alleged The King of Fighters movie (the one starring the clearly behind on her mortgage payments Maggie Q), and suggest quite fraudulently that I bothered to finish it.

Unlike Ender’s Game which I managed to complete, The Human Race is unwatchable beyond a certain point – once you’ve gotten past the hilarity of its sheer ridiculousness.

I hope you don’t waste your time, money or bandwidth on this piece of shit production.


Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit – Meh

January 21, 2014

20140121-184539.jpg

Look – this is going to be brief.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is a fine example of when bad people happen to good movies.

This movie had potential that was never fulfilled. It went from “OMG this is gonna be sooooo good” to “ah? Da fuq am I watching” in a hot minute!

Quick breakdown of why I would give this movie a C.

Dialogue was lacking.

Character development was rushed leaving it difficult to feel for any of the characters.

The plot ran away from them and tried to be too big to be edited too short, to the point it seemed like a rushed ending.

The decisions made by these expert agents came across as silly and amateur not cool, as we want our super agents to come across.

Finally the movement – whether it was from the US to Russia or intercontinental, the ability to go from place to place in supersonic speed was illogical and a MAJOR plot hole.

I honestly was disappointed by this movie… But the popcorn was good.


The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman

January 16, 2014

This isn’t a review of the movie. This is just a random musing on the film. No spoilers here!

20140116-233617.jpg

I don’t know why I decided to watch this movie. That’s a lie. Actually one of my friends recommended I watch it. He had a copy of it on the flash drive I loaned him. I copied it and had it for days. I’m terrible when it comes to watching movies in a timely manner.

At any rate he kept insisting reminding me to watch it so I decided to give it a go. At this point I had several movies queued up to watch before this movie I knew nothing about but hey, 2014 is all about exploring different elements of life and that includes breaking away from sequences.

I fired it up and wasn’t expecting what I saw.

The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman is an insane movie. Dark, beautiful, almost painful to watch but so present you just can’t imagine not watching it.

If I can only say one thing at this point, it would be – “you can spare the time to watch it. It’s worth the effort and despite how angry you will get at the main character’s utter and total stupidity, you’ll recognize you’re so captured by the entirety of the setting, the sheer LIFE of this movie, you won’t regret it.”

Tell me what you think when you’ve watched it!


Screw tumblr I’m on Instagram baby!

January 16, 2014

Right so before I started back blogging I got an iPhone and like countless other “sheeple” the urge to document every mundane aspect of my life overcame me.

All this to say I’m on Instagram and have been for ages now and have become quite the poster!

First post of 2014 with Video

January 7, 2014

So I’ve finally installed WordPress on my iPhone, over a year after having it. That means I’ll be more likely to post pics, videos and stories. I just hope I don’t post my “personal photos” accidentally! 😜

Check out the video here!

The purpose of this revised blog is to be more open with readers about what makes me tick, how things in the world work and to help everyone better understand what’s going on in the world around them in a way they can appreciate.

I’ll also be uploading to YouTube so check out my channel – guess what it’s called.

Watch this space to find out more of what’s happening in the life of the Superlative1.


Shontelle & Akon – Stuck With Each Other

January 14, 2009

So apparently the video for Shontelle’s latest track “Stuck With Each Other” featuring Akon (audio above) is wrapped up. The song comes from the soundtrack to Confessions of a Shopaholic, in theatres, February 13th, 2009 and NOT from her recently debuted album Shontelligence. So far the video looks like it should be a bit glossier than the video for T-Shirt. *Crosses fingers* source for pictures, Shontelleonline.com. Keep up the great work over on that site!


The Countdown Is On!

July 17, 2008

Well folks, it’s 4 months until the big birthday bash for Superlative 1. This blog turns 1, and yours truly is celebrating the 2nd anniversary of his 21st Birthday.

For those of you who need a reminder, Click Here for a look at last year’s List of Approved Birthday Gifts. This year the list will be even more exclusive, and more extensive. Start saving kiddies.

Ah… here’s a hint… certain designers have made the list this year that were previously overlooked but the question is, in what category do they appear? Guess you’ll just have to wait to see who made the cut this year, why and how.


Heath Ledger- Dead at 28

January 22, 2008

Not that many of you care but I found it shocking to hear about the death of the young actor. (Maybe his stocks crashed) It’s sad though, especially when talented people snuff themselves out. I had a friend commit suicide once (the police are suspecting overdose by pills which to me is a suicide if ever I did hear one) and it took everyone by surprise. Of course tongues wagged as to the reason but what can you do.

Charlie Wilson’s War

January 3, 2008

I came back from seeing this movie a few hours ago and just HAD to write about it. Honestly, Charlie Wilson’s War would have to be the BEST movie I have seen in months. I think this is the only movie I would give five stars to! Just… blown away! I can’t even get over how good it was.

Click here to read more about the movie I think is deserving of a Motion Picture of the Year award and Philip Seymour Hoffman should get Best Supporting Actor. Come to think of it, Best Ensemble Cast! Tom Hanks was exceptional in a not so typical role but I think his performance may be overshadowed by Will Smith’s almost solo performance in I Am Legend so…


Cloverfield

January 1, 2008

I’m actually excited.

2008 Looks set to begin with some good movies and Cloverfield has made its way to the top of my “must see” list. Check out the trailer below. May the fanaticism begin.
