WONDER WOMEN – REVIEW

Diana Prince is the hero that DC finally got it right. A female superhero in which is a first of it’s kind in between Marvel and DC. Princess Diana of Themyscira played by Gal Gadot throws in a punch like not other woman we have seen. Watch out Black Widow.

Setting in World War 1, it takes us to beginning of how Diana come to learn about the outside world and men. Living in the Island Themyscira under the supervision of her mother, Queen Hippolyta – Diana was innocent of how the world is. She was the only child in the island when she grew as the mother claims that she was sculpted by Queen herself and her life was given by the Zues, the ruler of Olympus.

She begins her adventure to actual world with Steve played by Chris Pine in order to stop the war of the world. The both paired fantastically and was able to move audiences in both amusing and romantic. You feel a little Captain America creeping in but skirts who are we kidding right.

But that wasn’t genre Patty Jenkins was looking for. Diana’s innocence’s and thirst for justice was what we clearly saw about and we liked it. She constantly concerns about the well being who and what ever is around her. Yes that is the character but the detail such her first taste of ice cream; that scene would have complemented the scene better if only they focus more on her reaction.

Even thou the movie was a little off in the beginning but the caught up by the 3rd act. The CGI fight scene was a little over the top but than again it won’t be DC right. At least we didn’t get the Martha scene again right.

Overall, can’t say it’s a home run but wonderful yes it is.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge – REVIEW

First of is the title, Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge –  is for meant for our region and for the US, it’s Pirates of the Carribbean: Dead Men Tells No Tales. It is not a religion thingy so don’t get worked out for no reasons. Captain Jack Sparrow is back for another adventure. We love the POC franchise, it’s original, it’s mystical, and it has Keira Knightley.

The movie start’s off with young Turner’s son trying to meet his father with the most unconventional method. After meeting his dad, the young lad decided to go after the Trident of Poseidon. Believing that it could break any curse including the Ducthman’s curse in which Will Turner is curse too.

However it the mission doesn’t get the easier as he meets with Captain Salazar who has a unsettle beef with Jack Sparrow. After the narrowing escape with Captain Salazar, Henry Turner meets up with this mysterious girl – Carina Smyth who is carrying around a book that leads to the location of the Trident. The two some how manage to strike a deal with Jack to find the Trident.

Directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, they were more focused on the adventure rather than long talks. It’s was a straight and direct movie about what was the mission about and who do they need to end the journey. Nothing like the second and third installment of POC at all where there was long talks and detail dialogues.

As for Jack, well we felt he might have put a few pound and might have his touch a little? He isn’t as agile as he was once were. The lost of his passion for the sea is something very clear. We hope it’s only temporary. 🙂

 Verdict:
It’s nice to see Captain Jack all about again but a little sad with it’s overall finishing. We were left a little hanging during climax and hope there is continuation from where it’s left. Screenbite is only able to give 5/10 for this movie.

P/s: There is end screen credit for this movie. So be sure not to leave earlier.

Daily Bites (8/5/17) – Seagal Banned

Steven Seagal has been banned from entering Ukraine

American action star Steven Seagal has been banned from entering Ukraine after accepting Russian citizenship last year and voicing his support for Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea, The Guardian reported. The five-year banishment of the “Under Siege” star was confirmed by Ukraine’s security service in a letter to the local news site Apostrophe that said the actor had “committed socially dangerous actions … that contradict the interests of maintaining Ukraine’s security.” In recent years, Ukraine has also barred outspoken French actor Gerard Depardieu and many Russian artists for similar reasons, the Guardian reported.
