Supergirl


While Supergirl was on CBS, the only episode I watched was the Flash crossover. being as I watch Flash I figured it might be a good idea to watch in case something carries over from the Supergirl episode. With this one episode..

To me in the coming attractions and even this one episode I really could not stand the actress that played Supergirl,to me she came off as insecure/self conscious and there was something else I  still can’t quite pinpoint what it is or was, I could barely watch crossover episode, even with Flash in it.  Also I wasn’t crazy about the overall pace and storyline of the cross over.

So maybe others felt the same way as I in one way or another, and so with the show

Now on the CW for season 2, I thought I’d give it a try (well when its posted to the free on demand channel)

I still can’t figure out why CBS had the show in the first place, especially when all the DC comics shows are doing so well on the CW.

before I get to Supergirl herself  I will say I definitely did not like the actor portraying Superman…in this. I do wish ‘Smallville’ would make an appearance in some way ..sorry I should say Tom Welling and anyone else from that show, After all, this is a multi-earth/dimension universe. Well so far no ‘Smallville’ but we get Dean Cain!!!

So far she still comes off as… maybe its not insecurity but awkward to me and that’s WHEN she’s Supergirl. This is even as I finish writing this up in March (of season 2 with the finale likely to air in May). I would think the ‘Awkward’ and anything I didn’t like about a character or actor would have subsided by now. I do in a sense like the actress, she’s cute Kara wise, even when she’s perky and I hate perky but for her it works. There is still a little something there that bothers me when she’s Supergirl. I will also say the show is a lot easier to watch than when it was on  CBS.

Well if I didn’t watch it before or skipped an episode here and there… I’ve been making sure  I watch each week now that the charming Chris Wood (Vampire Diaries, Containment) in blatant CW fashion has yet again recycled (or is it re-purposed) him into another CW show. For him I’ll watch and see how his story arc goes. Plus I’m waiting for more crossovers of the collective shows…

I heard something about a possible musical but I don’t recall if it was flash and supergirl (which sounds really annoying to me) or maybe the crossover (nope… thankfully)… but I think a musical episode would have been better with Arrow (as long as John Barrowman was in it)

I do hope we get a mini movie with all the heroes in one show (one epiosde) at some point…maybe a 2 hour TV movie special. That would work well as a follow up on (or lead up to) a crossover story or the best way is to finish a season, and even better use for a series finale!

Hello @CW @DC do you hear me!!!! I’ve got some ideas for your show(s)!!! Make.It. Happen.!!!!

(Can we make the #ArrowMusical happen?  I saw @Stephen Amell & @JohnBarrowman singing at SDCC   (San Diego Comic Con)…

Definately IMPROVED (and saved)

 

 

Classic Cuts~ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles :Out of the Shadows


Welcome  to Multi-screen Mo_T_Vision’s new signature series,  Classic cuts

you can find my criteria for choosing the titles here

 

TMNT

Having watched the original versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the 1990s hearing the way the new turtles speak, just irritates me. I thought they sounded more ‘surfer’/stoner speak in the ’90s but maybe not as much as I thought, unless the cartoon made them sound more like that.

I didn’t know the movies were originally based on comics, I thought it was a movie and cartoon before it became a comic.

The original starred Judith Hoag  as April O’beil and Elias Koteas as Casey Jones while Corey Feldman was the voice of Donatello  & James Saito played Shredder

Enjoy the original 1989 movie via amazon 

 

The Secret of the Ooze

1991

the 2 mutated creatures are a snapping turtle with spikes and I guess a werewolf.. which looks more like it should be in a movie version of the arcade game Rampage! Which Co-starred Ernie Reyes Jr. The Secret of the Ooze

Between the 2 originals I can see why they updated them. Though I refused to see the new one when it came out,

maybe now I will as I hear good things about the sequel besides ‘Arrow’ actor Stephen Amell is in it.

Here’s the amazon link to watch

 

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3…

1993   PG    1:36       Paige Turco as April O’Neil

I didn’t remember that there was a 3rd movie, so I guess while I’m on a Turtle tear I should see if I can find a copy

Was this subtitled “Secret of the Samurai”? If not, no idea where that came from

An old mysterious scepter causes April to switch places with an ancient Samurai, so our Turtle friends have to travel through time to feudal Japan to rescue their friend.

Japan 1603 which at first just shows a red sun in the background and for too long as well, then leads into a fight that fades from a red hue to full color.

I can already see why I forgot about this. It doesn’t even look like the turtles from the first two movies. Whoever is in the costumes could not have been pro martial artists it looks more like something that would have been made for Syfy channel when it first came out! (Watch the 2 previous movies you will see what I mean. Like if you watch Donatello with the Bo staff, doesn’t look like he’s twirling it but just shaking it from side to side (WTF?!?!) Most of the movie is just a bunch of cheesy poses. Also their faces and heads are not the same shapes nor are they the same color I think they are lighter from the original, plus where I think the original suits were more mate these are glossy. Then there’s splinter, definitely has got to be a new suit or animatronic (I think the later as I don’t think there was a fully head to toe shot of him). Talk about looking like a sewer rat! This one does, the previous incarnation of the character looked cleaner and less frazzled.

splinter…Lampshade…”he made another funny”

as my friend Rich (from youtubes’s The B.A.R.) would say.. another to toss in the pit of eternal stench.

Try the Cartoon, the first 2 season is on Amazon

Not only were there toys of various sorts (Remember the Pizza shooting  ‘Turtle Tank’ (or so I called it) was it the same as the Party Mobile?? Here’s one of  what looks like a new one with the Ghostbusters  (though my intention was including the older ones) Here’s one of the original comics

 

 

Its an all new Turtle!

The first time I came across the 2012-2014  ‘cartoon’ I have to grab a Ginger Ale every time as I got nausea everytime I saw it! For one CGI is not a ‘cartoon’ and these look like nothing but trash, like someone’s failed attempt using a new program, or an old apple computer (like 90s old). They are more an exercise for children to teach them their shapes rather than being characters. As for that theme song, (first time hearing this version) I’ve puked all over my monitor!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  

2014    PG-13      1:41      Blu-ray     Sci-fi     Action

Megan Fox & Will Arnett  William Fincher  Johnny Knoxcille (Leonardo voice) Alan Ritchson  as Raphael Tohoru Masamune  Whoopi Goldberg Will Arnett

I originally never intended to watch this one as I loved the originals so much; but after watching them, I can see why they were updated.  I originally boycotted watching this because they sounded like thugs and I couldn’t stand it, still can’t they should sound like surfer dudes period. Also because it should have been called the (Not so) Teenage Mutant Ninja TANKS because of the size of them. Well once I heard ‘Arrow’ Stephen Amell was cast in the sequel as Casey Jones, I thought it was a perfect fit! So needless to say I’ll be watching the sequel to this (at least) if only because “Arrow’ is in it, so I figured to give in and watch the update of the original movie or shall I say more like a reboot and see how it went, and if it would be as bad as I thought.

The start of the movie has a graphic novel inspired intro story. Shredder and his foot clan have their claws in the Burroughs of NYC from the cops to the politicians. Their diabolical plan is to release some toxin  from the spear of a building  and be the only ones with a antidote to bring the world to it’s knees.  We don’t actually get a look at the turtles ‘closely’ until around 15 minutes in when they are scoping out some security monitors with a little funny moment there.

What is a Hashi? The turtles fight (argue) more I think than they did in the original, Oh sh** what is that! Wait that’s splinter… HORRIFYING~ looking at splinter makes me nausea, couldn’t they have used the old costume or an animatronic creature? This one is just scary looking, and I’m usually the one that thinks the real rodents are cute, and can never understand and laughs at those who jump on tables when they see a mouse or rat. I guess this incarnation of Splinter is what they see!    I’m pretty sure in this he’s purely a motion capture creation. I think the  turtles may be so as well, or at least there was one point that made me think so. Now as for Shredder’s look… pardon the pun, but I do have to shred it and not in a good way! Shredder looks more like a robot than a person I can go on with he maybe thinks he’s a power ranger megazord, or even Edward Scissorhands (maybe he watched that movie way too much!)  Not sure who came up with the Shredder scissor-hands look, but WAY too much buddy. As they say less IS more!

So far the character ‘costumes’ are my only gripes, as well as the Turtles NOT sounding like the Turtles. Where’s all the goofiness especially from Michelangelo? He’s always been my fave now… it feels as if he’s a pod person. It feels there’s no heart other than who April O’Neil turns out to be. Also wasn’t that a new twist on the story or the actual comic origins of it?

Raphael seems overly aggressive for what seems for no reason. Donatello wears glasses, WHY?  because he’s the smart one of the group? What a cliche and Other than their masks and a little joking from Mikey all the turtles seem to be the same personality instead of very different individual ones.

What. The.  OMG it’s a wall of boomboxes (or should I say ghetto blasters.. was there a difference between the two or just depended on the music played by them?) Oh for SHAME Mr. Saks… tsk tsk.  between the bulk and adding other items to them even when they were ‘younger’  Donatello looks like a ghostbuster with whatever that is on his shell.

Hogoshai (sp?) is a great guardian spirit.

“Dashing through the snow in a 4 turtle open trailer, over hills we go, fighting all the way…”

WOW! Finally we get a Cowabunga from Mikey! The Turtles of the 90’s were so much cooler as far as personality. These ones just seem more like brutes they may as well be in the foot clan.  The best part of the whole film was the snow chase, which  I think should have came after the last scene (on the building)as a sort of game of keep away and the climax of fighting shredder wasn’t even a thrill, and likely after a few days to a week will have forgotten.

I think I still enjoyed the original 2 more, Raph’s speech didn’t feel genuine and sounded too forced.

Watch the Update via amazon 

TMNT 2: Out of the shadows

2016          PG-13      Bu-ray       1:52

Stephen Amell, Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, WWE star Sheamus as Rocksteady

This I am seeing only because Stephen Amell is in it and plays Casey Jones. Wait, was that a batmobile I just saw?!?! (the scene when transporting shredder)

In the beginning I am so far loving Stephen’s Casey Jones, its definitely a nice transition to his usual Broody Oliver/Arrow acting.   and Wait Turtle Dumpster….dumbfounded but wait wasn’t it pizzas that it used to shoot? But then again Pizza isn’t an actual weapon unless you make the cheesy like a spider web and someone else already has that copyrite!

OH…MY…Gods!!! I know I was ripping on the last one for not being like the 90s ones that they were more enjoyable well.. except that very last one… but I meant it only as the personalities and a few other things but they are KILLING me with the 90s music  ‘All I wanna do is put my boom boom in your zoom zoom … Shake your rump!”  (that was killing me with laughter at the lyrics) and let’s not forget about Ice ICe Baby! (I swear that song wilkl haunt my generation for the rest of our lives!

What was the name of that villain that looked like a brain? or was it Brain? (or am I just thinking Pinky and the Brain…sorry)   ah its Krang!

and Almost fell on the floor laughing at the turtles reaction to Casey.. and they called him Friday the 13th! Called Them swamp things  that now live in an amusement park!  (one of my favorite parts of the movie and I think most of them came in the beginning)

So shredder is tasked to put together what I’m calling the ‘Space vase’ (because 1 I forget what it’s called and 2 honestly.. tell me that doesn’t look at least in a way like a freaking vase) and this turn I think I like Be Bop and rocksteady a bit more.

There’s nothing really memorable like the sleigh ride from the last one. Frankly as soon as it was over I still only remember some of the beginning parts (like the dumpster) and Stephen Amell lighthearted humorous parts

The rental surprisingly  includes some extras

Order for your library  or watch via Amazon video

Now I can complain about the reboots, but I did say it needed an updated, aside from the storylines which weren’t great but at least was an effort and I guess the sky needle part was cool but turtles playing leap frog? so stupid! As for the tanks.. I mean turtles… any chance they could at least lose some weight and shell if there’s another  movie?

Thank you Chobot!! Dude! really thare’s barely any action and apparently this guy is paid by Hollywood to drink their brainless kool-aid!

I do agree with the fights of the old looking cheesy, but at least there was real fights (choreagraphed) and I agree that Leaf frog crap was stupid.

Avengers: Infinity War Casting Call Excludes Popular Hero Geez they couldn’t have just come out and said it? I already had my suspicions who would be in the first and second movies. Considering Tom Holland is not official Marvel Property I figured he might not be but from my understanding is that the ENTIRE Marvel universe is supposed to make an appearance in one movie or the other. I’m guessing our big names (those listed) would be in the first as most of their story-lines (or contracts) are up. Plus with the certain other characters to get their solos after infinity wars #2 is out I’m guessing all of those characters would likely be in IW 2.  My guess is, aside from the Winter Soldier… the other characters die (unless he was exaggerating.. Sebastian Stan said in an interview his contract is until he’s like 4o…or was it 45)

SPOILER!!!

The Walking Dead Spoilers: Five Moments To Expect When Season 7 Returns

Doctor Strange


2016   PG-13      Marvel  115 minutes  Action/Adventure/Fantasy

stars       Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams  Mads Mikklesen, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benjamin Bratt       imdb.com

 WOW! That Opening certainly beat DiCaprio’s bendy Inception!

 The shifty Scenery is more mind blowing than just bending.

So the cause of the accident that ruins Doctor Strange’s hand, he was driving not only super fast but talking on the phone as well. I honestly feel bad more for that car than the doc. However as far as the Doc’s hands go, I can relate in a way.. as I have been having a problem with my right since the beginning of 2016….to the point I quite often get very frustrated as I cannot pick things up, or write.

Well there is certainly a lot to take in during this movie as far as the scenery goes. There were times like those scenes with the moving walls I didn’t know what to focus on, or where to focus. For this movie it may be best to sit in a row more towards the  middle of the theater!

During The Doctor’s research into getting his hands back, a file is taken from archives for him, on Jonathan Pangborn (played by

Bemjamin Bratt)   who was a former patient of Strange’s that was somehow paralyzed, and turned away by the doc; however he some how found a way to be able to walk again.

Surrender Control to gain control

Doctor Strange    ~ ‘What’s in the tea….LSD?  (after a trippy scene.)

Ancient    Have you seen that before in a gift shop?

No one knows how old the Ancient One really is,  only that she’s Celtic (me thinks Druid, is more likely)

There’s Sanctums in New York, London and Hong Kong that protect the world

They use the mirror dimension  to practice and observe as what happens there does not interfere with this reality, however dark sorcerers can be more powerful  in it

The infinite  multiverses = infinite dangers

 (no really? gods that sounds too much like the over done Spider-man  “With Great power…..” line)

There are mild funny instances  but not like the laugh out loud  ones we get from the Avengers movies characters.

Kaecilius: Mister 

Strange: Doctor

Kaecilius: Mister Doctor

Strange: Strange

Kaecilius: We’ll see

However they did the ‘moving’ sets practical, CGI or a bit of both I LOVE them! I hope the blu-ray will have a Behind the Scenes of how they did that in the special features. Plus I can’t wait to do some lay pause/slow motion to see it unravel slower. The make-up FX love the purple and ‘scales’ around Mads eyes (almost makes me think Captain Hook from Once Upon a time will show up and call him Gator or crocodile.)

Another Favorite is the Cloak of Levitation, it most certainly has a sense of humor of its own and those are the times the room was a well of laughter! (especially during a fight scene) Then there was that set of hand…errr make that body cuff.

Am I the only one, but does Dormomu, the face in the stars look a lot like Thanos to you?

Now THAT…Was an adventure! Though I’m not sure if I like this or Civil war better than the other, but then they are 2 types of movies.I’m somewhat speechless aside from the notes I took while watching the movie, so  I think I’m going to need another view as I think the first viewing put me into a shock of sorts.

Captain America & Winter Soldier


Being as I didn’t have the bog when these came out… and sadly the cable movie stations didn’t endlessly show the first 2 captain movies, and what’s up with that anyway.. of course any other movie they do it for but for one that’s at least 5 years old and for those that may need a recap of what has gone on so far (at least in Cap’s movies) they can’t endlessly show it.

So its a week or 2 after seeing Civil War on opening day and I wish I had the money to see it again in the theater… so instead I’m going to rent the previous 2 movies and   thought I’d do a look back review of them .

Captain America the First Avenger

2011  PG-13  2:05  Action, Period,Comics, Origin, Adaptation   Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving, Dominick Cooper, Hayley Atwell

The movie starts March 1942 in Tonsberg Norway incursion for the Teseract. Why would you just have one safe guard to guard that treasure? Not to mention the button to open it was found so easily… approximately 10 minutes in Bucky shows up  looking so handsome in his Uniform.

Bucky: Don’t do anything stupid till I get back”
Steve: I can’t, you’re taking all the stupid with you”

He enlists to fight in World War 2  5 times failing all of them.. to short, too skinny and has asthma just to name a few. The little guy with lots of heart gets the chance “to kill some Nazis” when he volunteers for a secret experiment that will transform him into Captain America, a super soldier with a perfect physique and heightened reflexes whose metabolism burns four times faster  than the average person.

Captain’s Pajama’s!  the uniform really does look so, watching some interviews of the cast for the movies  and the guys joking about it.

Steve learns of troop 107 being captured, and seeing him remember that’s Bucky’s. There’s no rescue mission so he goes solo to rescue his friend who is not with the other soldiers but in a lab in a chair, but recognizes him right away so did or didn’t they (Hydra’s) Dr. Zola experiment on him yet?

So the ‘plasma weapons’ are made from the teseract? It dosen’t look any smaller

The Fondue running joke, still a tickler and pretty sure Bucky made sniper with the army.

Oh That’s how Bucky falls out of the train. He uses Cap’s shield when a blast goes off it knocking Bucky out of the train  to hang on to a broken bar to keep from falling to his demise.

Love the ‘backfire’ on Cap’s bike

How’d they make Chris Evans into the scrawny Steve Rodgers?

Find any format you need here via AMAZON

The Winter Soldier

2014     PG-13  2:16 Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, 
Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández 

So Steve Rodgers is running circles (or in this case rectangles) around Sam Wilson when Black Widow shows up

“Hi Boys, either of you know where the Smithsonian is; I’m here to pick up a fossil”

Hydra strikes again in the form the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D and the Winter Soldier who turns out to be Cap’s err.. Steve Rodgers best bud Bucky Barnes 

While on a mission on I forget the ship’s name, Cap has a fight with Georges Batroc played by actual UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre

We learn that Natasha has previously had a run in with the Winter Soldier and why she has a scar on her hip, and tells Steve the soldier is responsible for over two dozen assassinations in 50 years.

Easter Eggs: Loki’s staff & the Twins   and Bucky in the Smithsonian

Special Features:  Rental DVD from Netflix- was a Deleted scene and Steve Roger’s Notebook
