My thoughts on Gravity (No Spoilers)

For the longest time I wanted to write my thoughts on Gravity. Or maybe even a review, on how much I loved its execution. When the first trailer was released it was great and I knew I had to see it, and would love it.
I saw it twice in theaters--both in IMAX 3D--and loved it even more on the 2nd viewing, but something I took away from it after the two viewings that has bugged me for the longest time. Not just the $30 dollars I threw at movie theater haha.
As a cinema film the movie was, to me, the best movie I watched last year. Especially in theaters. I stress theaters.
Alfonso Cuarón planned on giving movie goers a great ride, along with an actual story, and symbolism. I knew before watching the film I'd be freaked out. I love the prospect of space, but at the same time outer space scares the living s*** of me. But I digress...
If you saw it in theaters, I hope you saw it in IMAX 3D or at least in 3D. The movie was best viewed in those formats and gave the overall film that depth and ride it deserved. I mean yeah, the film can be viewed in standard edition on the big screen, but it's not the same.
Which brings me to the point of this blog...
Gravity will lose its luster and greatness once it moves to the small screen of home video.
Most movies can be transferred from theaters to home viewing, but not all. And Gravity is definitely in the latter. Don't get me wrong I'll probably be purchasing it on blu-ray, but it won't be the same. Gravity is a film that you have to submerge yourself into to fully get the ride it turned out to be. Yea, the movie isn't perfect (what movie is anyways) but it is a cinematic film to behold.
When I was in the theaters I was honestly terrified, stop breathing at times, had sweaty palms, and constantly had to remind myself that it was a film and not real haha. The soundtrack was epic. One of the handful of soundtracks that I have ever purchased. When I find myself listening to the soundtrack I have to turn it up loud, or put on the headphones and close my eyes and just lose myself.
But like I mentioned earlier I don't think the film will be as enjoyable sitting at home. Unless you have a large theater at home.
Not everyone has loved this movie, but I know for the most part the movie should still be worth watching at home if you didn't get to see it in theaters.
My constant repeating of the immersion of Gravity's aweomeness has become redundant. I just felt like putting in my two cents.

Sorry couldn't resist

Oh, and one last thing. I really couldn't stand to hear certain experts, and movie goers, complaining about the realism and science behind the movie. It's a damn movie. No movie is 100% accurate. That's why we watch movies. To get away from life and enjoy story telling and shit.
I know one of my favorite people Neil deGrasse Tyson was all over this movie, but he still admitted to liking it. Which is fine. But man, some people were thinking this movie really happened or something....
end rant

I agree with pretty much all of that. Very tense, very emotional. Gravity is one of the most unique cinematic experiences I've ever had. I'll buy it on blu ray, but I always tell people that the only real way to see it is in theaters.

Why I love Nick's TMNT Part 1

When this show was first mentioned years ago I'll admit I was not too fond of the idea. Don't get me wrong I love my TMNT, but I wasn't sure how Nick would go about bringing it to the small screen. Just like many of you, I grew up with this classic series. Comic, cartoons, Movies and HORDES of toys, that brought my obsession ten fold. I honestly thought the cartoon was gonna be some lame goofy joke of a show.
Much of my pessimism came from certain voice casting. Jason Biggs was cast as Leonardo, Sean Astin as Raphael, Rob Paulsen as Donatello, and Greg Cripes. Being a fan of voice over work, I'm always putting certain actors and talents under high scrutiny when it comes to things I love. Don't get me wrong Rob Paulsen coming back to voice one of the turtles (Raphael in the original 80's cartoon) was great. I had never heard of Greg Cripes so I couldn't say much on that front. We all know Sean Astin and his great history in the entertainment realm, but I was weary on him voicing Raph. Which brings me to Jason Biggs voicing Leo. I honestly laughed at the thought of mr. American Pie voicing the leader of the TMNT. But as I like to do with any movie or show, etc I saved my opinions for when the show actually started.
Boy was I wrong in my questioning of Nickelodeon. This cast was perfect in every way. After watching the show for awhile I can honestly say I have gotten caught up in the voices, and execution, that I forget who is voicing this lean, mean incredible team.

The first episode was brought in like most "new" series with a bit of a origin story. We as the viewers are brought in right when the Turtles are celebrating their 15th birthday. Or as they call it "Happy Mutation Day." The turtles have been underground for the last 15 years being trained by Master Splinter. After finally being allowed to emerge from the sewers the Turtles experience the world up close and personal.

I honestly love how the series did not let the Turtles enter the world being perfect fighters and know-it-all teens. Well, they think they know it all, but what teenager doesn't?? haha
The first time the Turtles fight side by side, their execution is very sloppy. They were so used to fighting one another, instead of together, they kept bumping into one another and looking a mess. As the series progressed, so did their talents. And like most people, or turtles, they began to get cocky and arrogant. But life has a funny way of reminding you how little you know. Master Splinter is continuing to teach them lessons throughout the series. He isn't just a voice of reason, he actually gets them off of their asses and makes them put in work. He constantly brings them back to earth when they get too full of themselves. But on the other side he's a parent who still wants to protect his kids.

As the four go as a group, they completely compliment one another. Much like any siblings, especially brothers for that matter, the four turtles will butt heads with one another from time to time. It isn't just Leo and Raph fighting over who should be leading the group.

Leo is the leader who constantly has to keep the turtles in check when they go astray (when not around Splinter), but he has a geeky side that is often teased by the other three. He's headstrong, but still a teenager.

Donatello is the one that keeps the turtles up and ready for any new advancements from their enemies, but he's no pushover when it comes to fighting. Honestly in this cartoon Donny has become more of a central figure than in the past. He's always been the smart one, but this time around there's more to his character.

Mikey is the oddball, goof of the group who constantly gets on everyone's nerves, but reminds everyone that there's more to being Turtles than fighting. He can be a bit annoying at times, but he's the life and energy of the group.

Then you have Raph who is the muscle, and bully of the group. Often hot headed, but very compassionate with anything he's involved with. He'll tease his brothers at any chance, but if you come at his family, he will do anything for them.
The four all have a certain dynamic with one another that is always entertaining.

I want to dive further into more characters and story, but I should cut it there. In the coming weeks I will further dive into the awesomeness of TMNT and remind those who don't watch, why it's a worthy show.

Great blog! I want to start this series soon.

Excellent blog, MJ! I LOVE this new series and follow it immensely. Plus it appears as though Nick knows what it possesses, which it great in its own right. I hope this rendition lasts for awhile as it has all the elements of action and comedy down expertly. One of the best animated shows out right now!

The Real Ghostbusters Soundtrack - Don't Play Her Game


MJZ at 08:46 PM Dec 29

If this song doesn't scream late 80s I don't know what does haha I always loved the pop songs they would occasionally play during the series. Always so catchy.

What if: Ghostbusters

Some days I like to think and wonder what if...
What if the Ghostbusters franchise would've had it's own trilogy of sorts (set in the 80s of course)? I love the two movies, obviously, but I always wondered what if we did get a third movie back in the day. You know kinda like...Star Wars, Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings and other big movie trilogies and so forth, spread out the movies into several cinematic films.
Ghostbusters was a great stand alone movie, but you knew there HAD to be a sequel. We got that sequel, though not as great as the first, still a damn good time. I just feel that during its prime so much potential was there. Yes, The Real Ghostbusters was a great cartoon and continuation, if you will, but, I dunno the greatness of Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis, Hudson, Moranis and Weaver in the peak of the 80's could've been epic.
But now...I don't want a third movie. I've said that before, but it needs to be said again. It's WAY too late for another movie. I was kinda happy with Ghostbusters video game in 2009 being that third movie if you will. Though, I wish we could get a continuation of that game and expand it to cover more missions and a potential of sandbox mode. It was fun, but too short and I really wanted the ability to do side jobs when I'm not playing the main story mode.

Just some random thoughts. I've got plenty more but for now you guys can stew on this one...

Slick Nick at 10:04 PM Dec 29

I agree with your comments MJZ...if they had made a 3rd movie say a year or two after the second one..that would have been fine...but 20+ years wouldnt work as well. Plus the only cast memeber pushing for a sequel seems to be Dan Aykroyd unfortunately.

razgriz21 at 11:29 PM Dec 29

Agree with you.

The game was a good continuation but short.

The 3rd movie regardless won't be good compared to the original or even the 2nd (which I liked as well).

YoshioKun13 at 02:35 AM Dec 30

It should have a been a trilogy.

But I don't want to see it become one now, so long after the fact.

I really need to get back to that game where I left off...

I forgot to mention earlier that yesterday I had a movie marathon consisting of The Lone Ranger, Elysium, and The Heat. I watched all three movies with low expectations and surprisingly enough enjoyed watching all three. I mean, they weren't particularly good or great movies, but I still had fun...
Derek237 at 03:57 PM Dec 29

I'm planning on watching Elysium hopefully later tonight. But even though The Heat got shitty reviews, I loved the hell out of it.

I kind of don't want to sit through the Lone Ranger though.

YoshioKun13 at 04:33 PM Dec 29

Usually when I do get around to watching those kind of films with that reputation, I find that they're not actually that bad. They may not be genuinely good but also aren't the most horrendous thing ever either.

Guess I'll see...

Mr.Blizzo at 08:48 PM Dec 29

I didn't think The Lone Ranger was that bad either. I enjoyed it as well.

Just got back from seeing The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and I had a great time. Though, I saw it in HFR 3D and most of the movie looked good, while most of it looked so fake and unrealistic. My buddy and I planned on seeing the standard edition but it JUST sold out right when we were in line. Apparently it was the 2nd showing of the day that was sold out. I'm really surprised that it's still such a hot ticket item when so many movies have been getting released lately. We decided to see this version (HFR 3D) 'cause it was the next showing (an hour) and the next standard version wasn't until 2-3 hours later.
MJZ at 02:01 AM Dec 28

@Yoshio - Yea, it kinda takes away from a lot of the movie. Smaug looked great in HFR 3D along with certain other scenes that looked so realistic, but certain scenes with human characters and CGI interlaced, it was way too obvious.

YoshioKun13 at 02:13 AM Dec 28

I went to see AUJ last year in both regular 3D and the HFR 3D format. Wanted to give it a shot but, just ended up hating it. Earlier today I was in Walmart and playing on one of the TV displays was MONSTERS UNIVERSITY in that high-speed frame rate. Even for fully CGI movies, it's just.....not good.

So bizarre.

Funny. When I saw Unexpected Journey in HFR 3D, I actually thought it brought more weight to characters like the trolls, the Goblin King and Gollum. It was just the wargs and the eagles that suffered from it.
