xXx: Return of Xander Cage

This is one of moviegoers’ favorite movies in 2017. Personally, I love the characters of Vin Diesel in his movies. He is always tough, strong and almost invincible. xXx: Return of Xander Cage is an action movie with heavy stunts like its predecessor with fights and shoot-outs. Women have also become one of the objectifications.

Released on January 20th 2017, this movie was directed by D. J. Caruso. And, it has Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures as its distributors. Its duration is 1h 50m. Well, as a movie lover, I am giving comments on this one hell of movies. Although I am a fan of this movie, there are some critics on it.

Cage is Alive!

It is mentioned that Cage was dead in XXX: State of the Union by Gibbons. I mean why he gave false information to the second xXx, Ice Cube? Did he just have no idea about where Xander cage’s existence after the mission? I mean, hey how unprofessional Gibbon was by giving the statement. In xXx: Return of Xander Cage, it proves that Gibbons’ statement is nonsense. If Gibbon was a professional agent, he should be able to track down a non-military or unprofessionally trained Xander Cage. What do you think?

No One Can Save the World Except Xander Cage!

I am sorry Cage but you are just a “PUNK” character in the movie. You are not a military, special agent or professionally trained individual by the government. This movie shows that US government was nothing before The Almighty Groups of Punks.

Other Comments

Overall, I think that this movie is weak on characterizations. Sloppy direction completed its poor story. Most of moviegoers must love this thriller / action movie. But for me, it is just a brainless action fun one. Completely lacks of unique styles and plays.

Well, these comments are my own only. You have your own.

The Legend of Tarzan

The film was released on July 1st, 2016 in USA. The genre is drama/action with 1h 50m duration. The story is about Tarzan who lives in Victorian England. He is married with Jane and uses the name of John Clayton III. A treacherous Leon Rom who envoy for King Leopold lures Tarzan to come to Kongo. This is where the story begins. It turns out that he killed the son of chief Keewazi, the leader of Waziri tribe. It was not without reason but because Kolunga the son of chief Keewazi has killed Tarzan’s Ape mother first. So this is about vengeance after vengeance.

In the Box Office, 356.7 million USD has been earned. The Legend of Tarzan is a lot of fun, adventure, romance and adrenaline. There are beautiful forests, natural landscapes, digital animals and more. Well, there are pros and cons about this movie. And, we are discussing them with you.

Comments

Where is the original story of Tarzan? The real Tarzan would not love to stay a long time in the city. Jungle is his home sweet home where every single day is an adventure. I mean, Tarzan in a suite? Oh come on! This is simply not right for the story relatively to the king of the jungle. Well, apparently many viewers love it at all due to uniqueness and distinctive story line.

When it comes to optics, this Tarzan has always the bad one. I do not mean to be racist but hey it is so obvious. Except his childhood which was raised by apes and turned into a wild man. Although it is impossible and irrational, the story is not too hard to accept at all.

Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan has given the character a very good attraction. The diamond-cut muscles of his are indeed an attraction to the big-screen. It is a part of the allures to expose to audiences. I say just “nice”.

Leon Rom with his beaded talisman, he seems so powerful with it at his hands. I mean he is like an expert of martial art with talisman stuff. Even the mighty Tarzan cannot stand against him. Strangled and choked Tarzan looks helpless. But well, he is the hero in the story so it would not be funny at all to see him defeated.

One of the most exhilarating scenes is that the flock of wild the beast rumbling to destroy Leon Rom’s port house. It is so much. Another scene is where Tarzan fighting Akut. It is just awesome although only a few minutes scene.

What is The Difference Between Traveling and Travelling


The word traveling is very familiar among us. Traveling is my hobby, and probably many people’s hobby as well. When it comes to choose between traveling and travelling, because we often here both of the words in our daily life. You may feel so confuse what word to choose among traveling and travelling. Which one is the right one? Here are the explanation about it, hopefully will not make you feel confuse anymore.

traveling is a very fascinating hobby, because you go to the other place and see new beautiful places, feel the new experience, and enjoy different cultures and life style in that place. How many times people use the word traveling, people use it in articles, as well as in daily conversation.

Which one is the right, ‘travelling’ or ‘traveling’. The answer is, both of the words are true.

When you read word ‘traveling’, it must be American who writes it. When you read the word ‘travelling’, it must be UK who write it. American English usually shorten something, so they eliminte another L in the world travelling, so it become traveling. However, Australian and UK specially use word travelling. The use British English so the double the last consonant when it only has two or less syllables.

So, it is right if you want to use both of the words for both conversation and writing. But you need to know with who you are talking, or for who you are writing. When you are facing American, it is better to use traveling. When you are talking with British or Australian, the word travelling is the most appropriate.

I hope this article is really helpful for you who feel so curious. Happy traveling/travelling guys!

Underworld: Blood Wars

This movie is one of the most awaited by moviegoers. Since its first sequel in 2003, it has been making action/adventure movies combined with horror more thrilling. It was released on January 6th 2017 in USA, Underworld: Blood Wars has reached 81.1 million USD in the Box Office. The theme is about the wars between two races, Lycan and Vampire. The main character here is Selene as a Death Dealer which played the role by Kate Beckinsale. She is against both Lycans and Vampires who betrayed her. Allies are David (Theo James) and Thomas (Peter Andersson).

Comments

So what are the comments about this movie? I love to see the classy black-leather badass. I think it is more playful with guns and swords to settle the old-feud for centuries between the races. The fights are just nice with quite fabulous scenes especially, the cage-fight between Selene and Marius. Although there’s a drama in the scene, it ended furiously. It was so horrified to see the spine of Marius pulled out easily just like that. Well, it is quite great to see such of it.

What I am curious about are the fate of Michael Corvin and Eve. It is too bad that Michael died and his blood all drained. About Eve, where was she? I believe the movie would be more intriguing with the existence of her. More drama is certainly a thing for sale in the movie whether she’s dead or alive in this sequel. Let us see whether the next one (5th sequel) shows character of Eve or not.

Underworld: Blood Wars full movie is 1h 33m. The time should enough for watching. However, it is constructed in a poor quality. It has failed to engage in any impactful manner in audiences. Many of choppy editing and close-ups make the screen hard to keep track. They are by design to hide poor works of stunts. However, Karl Walter Lindenlaub the Cinematographer has been done a great job in every scene with low lights. His works make the movie shrouded in darkness. This makes it impossible for a 3D version.

Messy and sloppy narrative makes this Underworld: Blood Wars a poor one. Noteworthy performances are caused by bland and uninteresting players. Connecting with audiences is a fail. However, Kate Beckinsale proves that she is the ideal for the cool action heroine including in this movie.

In short, there is nothing new to say in this sequel. It is unlikely that the movie to move the positive direction for this series.
