The Legend of Tarzan

2016, PG-13, action adventure Drama

Alexander Skarsgård, Margot Robbie,Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson

We start in the congo  with some deal for some raw diamonds, and then switch to London. Between scenes  we get flashbacks of Tarzan growing up and his life with the gorillas.

Was cracking up at the guy stuck in the train roof!  and half an hour to 1 1/2 hours into the movie we finally find out why the guy in the cheeta  skin wants Tarzan. What the hell with that cut away, then all of a sudden we are in some port.

Now THAT is what you call an army!!

Was ok but too much green screen CG use. Why not just use a real animal  (trained animal actors) and try to use that motion capture.

With Samuel L Jackson in this and going to be in Kong Skull Island I was getting confused with what I was watching every now and again!

Watching this made me realize how much I miss watching Alex on True Blood… MORE MOVIES PLEASE!!

I could probably watch this a few times again before I get tired of it.

2015  R  1:23  stars Alexander Skarsgard     More on

An american family has been living in a bomb shelter avoiding what looms about outside for 301 days. Now their hidding place has been breached (all because of a rat …you’ll get the joke if you watch it) but what is coming for them?

The daughter keeps mentioning and is afraid of something called ‘the breathers’, everytime I hear this all I can do is think of guys in hazmat suits. The only explanation to this world is some virus (but nothing more than that) we get some flash backs to how they got where they are but nothing as to how the virus got out or how contagious it is.  I don’t think a ‘virus’ would make their world look like that, oh wait that’s why ok.

I do like how Daddy skarsgard tells the kid stories of course its the dad that calms the her and the mother makes her  anxiousness and panic ridden. They like in Zombieland abide by 4 or 5 rules they made up. One of them is not to lose control, another is to keep quiet (so they won’t be found) and the rest I forget.  That’s a bit of a twist tho’ there’s no surprise in it.

Not really boring but at the same time it is. I guess I just can’t take seeing the same setting through a whole movie, so in that way it is. The mother is not likable, from neither a child’s point of view or this adult’s.
