“Rambo: Last Blood” was freakin’ great! Don’t listen to the critics and haters!!!

Just saw “Rambo: Last Blood” earlier today and I was blown away by it. The film was pretty amazing really. The film was pretty graphic, dark and intense. This film was a lot more darker than the previous 4 Rambo films.

The plot to this movie is very straightforward really. After years of John Rambo fighting battles… he finally decided that he had enough and live a normal life on his father’s ranch (starting where Rambo 4 ended). He adopts a family to live with since he hasn’t had a family in a long time. He lives with his old friend Maria who is the grandmother of Gabrielle (who appears to be Rambo’s adopted daughter as well). Gabrielle wants to go to Mexico to see her biological father who she hasn’t seen in years and once she goes there, she finds out her father never cared for her and her mother. Suddenly she goes missing after that and now all hell breaks loose.

That’s all I’ll say about the plot for now to avoid spoilers but there isn’t really anything shocking in the film anyway. It’s just a simple movie with a simple plot and story but most importantly this film is action packed all the way through. What do you expect from a Rambo movie, right?

This Rambo movie was totally different than the previous 4. It definitely felt like a western and you’ll see plenty of action, violence and gore. Like I said above… the film was pretty graphic, dark and intense. You’ll see exactly those three in this film. I’ve always known that Rambo was a pretty intense guy in the previous 4 films but wait until you see him in this movie. I predicted that Rambo fighting Mexican cartels would bring out the violent side of him even more and I was right. You thought Rambo was intense in Rambo 4 (2008), wait until you see him in “Last Blood”. You haven’t seen nothing yet. In this movie there will be some gross outs and some pretty gritty scenes.

Some Rambo fans wanna complain about the short hair but I have no problem with the short hair. Once you see this movie, you’ll see why. I think the long haired Rambo is played out anyways and it’s finally time to try something different, ya know?

Sly Stallone maybe a 70 year old guy but he can still do action movies pretty well and he still got it. Sly is an easy target of movie critics and haters but he’s still making movies and doing what he loves so I respect him for that.

With that being said, “Rambo: Last Blood” was a badass movie. I loved it all the way through. A perfect action movie. Those sex traffickers in the movie thought Sly would be easy to pick on but man, once you see this movie you’ll see that the sex traffickers thought wrong. They didn’t realize who they were fucking with, lmao. You don’t mess with Rambo and Rambo will make sure you wish you never did.

If you’re a Rambo fan or a newbie, you should go see it. You don’t really need to see the Rambo movies in order since they’re all standalone movies with their own stories anyways. This makes me want to re-watch the first four Rambo films and I will soon.

Movie critics really are the scum of the earth, you shouldn’t listen to them at all…

Man, movie critics all over the internet are ripping “Rambo: Last Blood” to shreds. They’re tearing that movie apart like crazy. I haven’t read any reviews of “Rambo: Last Blood” online since I don’t read movie reviews from critics at all but I’m hearing through social media that the film is getting negative reviews like mad.

You see, when I see a movie, I always go by my own opinion alone. I see the movie for myself and will give a 100% honest opinion on it. I’ll have no problem loving a movie that critics hate and will have no problem hating a movie that the critics love. When they write about their opinions on films doesn’t necessarily mean they are right.

For example, critics praised the hell out of movies positively with movies such as “Black Panther” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” so I go to the movies to see them for myself and ended up hating them. I tried to re-watch those movies for a second viewing and still haven’t changed my mind… I still don’t like them to this day. There has been movies where critics hated that I loved for example, “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is one movie I can think of at the top of my head. There has been many others but I don’t feel like listing them all but I think you get my point by now.

I think the reason critics are slamming “Rambo: Last Blood” is ’cause they are just triggered by the fact that the film is bringing awareness to human sex trafficking. Most movie critics are die-hard liberals anyway so of course, they’re gonna be offended by the content in “Last Blood”.

I would say, fuck all the critics and you go see the film anyways. I know I’m going to. Like I said, I don’t go by their opinion… I go by own opinion only. I don’t have to like a movie just because this person does and don’t have to hate it just because this person does. I have no problem having opposites opinion. Only thing, though, I don’t have opposites of opinion all the time… there are times where I actually think most people are right that this movie is good and this movie is bad.

Go by your own opinion, that’s the beauty of freedom of expression. These so-called professional critics who goes to the movies for free and gets paid for it are a bunch of losers anyway. That’s not a real job, in my opinion. They’re just paid a lot of money just to ram their opinions down our throats and that’s what they’re here for. That’s all it is, just their “opinion”.

I write my own movie reviews “online” just to show you that I don’t listen to anyone else. Go into the theaters with an open mind.

I’ve always known that movie critics are the scum of the earth and they’re getting much worse today. Why praise “Black Panther” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” when both of those movies weren’t all that great?

I don’t read movie reviews online either… I don’t go to rotten tomatoes and don’t read the reviews at IMDB. It’s all bunch of shit.

Can’t wait to see “Rambo: Last Blood” and I’m gonna see it tomorrow.

Saw “IT – Chapter Two” last night and freakin’ loved it!!! Surprisingly pretty close to the book…

Last night, I went to the movies to see the new Stephen King movie, “IT – Chpater Two”. I re-watched the first one last Saturday night. From what I’ve saw of the two IT movies, it was all pretty faithful to the book for the most part. It was all pretty close. Of course, both movies had little changes here and there a little bit but not too bad.

I thought “It – Chapter Two” was a well-made film. I loved it despite the film getting mixed reviews. Yeah, there were a lot of CGI in the film but it’s hard to make all that stuff from the book to make it all real so CGI was needed no matter what you think of it. They had to use CGI for the film so they can match the weird things happening from the book.

I thought the cast did really great, though. Everybody did a good job… the kids did a good job playing the young version of the Losers Club and the adult actors did a great job playing the full grown version of the Losers Club. It was interesting seeing Bill Hader in a non-comedic role seeing that Hader is most famous from Saturday Night Live. I guess Bill Hader just wants to be taken seriously as an actor and he doesn’t just want to be seen as a “comedy” actor. He wants to show that he can do other genres when it comes to acting. I thought he did a good job playing in a non-comedic role. Jessica Chastain made a perfect Beverly and James McaVoy killed it as Stuttering Bill. The rest of the cast did good too and I was also impressed with Isaiah Mustafa who played Mike Hanlon (is that performance Oscar worthy? Yes, definitely.)

Anyway, I thought “It – Chapter Two” was very good and definitely getting the BluRay when it comes out. The TV version of IT with Tim Curry as Pennywise was pretty cool but that version wasn’t faithful to the book at all. The remake was 10 x’s more faithful.

There are still other movies I want to see in theater for the rest of the year though. We have: “Rambo: Last Blood”, the “Joker” movie with Joaquin Phoenix, “Doctor Sleep”, “Maleficient: Mistress of Evil”, “Terminator: Dark Fate”, “A Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood” and “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker”. I’m gonna try to see all these.

Dolph Lundgren and Carl Weathers reunite in instagram photo gone viral check it out!!!

We haven’t see Carl Weathers on the big screen in many years so you’re all probably wondering what he looks like right now. Well, here he is. Carl Weathers the man himself and he’s the former Rocky star at Gold’s Gym in Venice where he ran into Rocky IV cast mate, Dolph Lundgren.

Some of you may ask where has Carl Weathers been? Is he still working in Hollywood? It may seem like he has disappeared for a while but yes, he is still acting believe it or not. He really hasn’t gone away. Carl’s been mostly doing voice over work for children’s animated movies for example Carl did voice over work for a character in “Toy Story 4”. As for live action work, Carl just had a role in the Star Wars TV series for Disney+ in “The Mandalorian”. I can see why people would think they haven’t seen Carl in a long time since his last major motion picture role was in “Action Jackson” in 1988. That was the last big movie that he did.

We may never see Dolph and Carl reunite in a Rocky movie ever again but they can still reunite on the big screen somehow. There’s a pretty good chance that Carl might get added to the Expendables cast so could we see Carl in Expendables 4? That could happen and it would be cool so hopefully it does.

This is a cool photo and Carl is looking good. Carl hasn’t changed a bit except his hair really white. Well Carl is 71 years old now… looks like he’s not into plastic surgery and all that stuff.

Enjoy the pic!

Thoughts on the new “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” D23 footage…

This isn’t an official 2nd teaser trailer. It’s just a special look that was shown at the D23 event. I would have to say that this footage was beautifully put together. Only JJ Abrams can put together a tiny video that compiles all 9 Star Wars films. This video footage even included the three prequels which was awesome.

In the past, I used to never be that much of a Star Wars fan but Disney is making me appreciate Star Wars more and more. I guess I’m turning into a pretty big Star Wars nerd myself ’cause I’ve just started re-watching the first 8 Star Wars movies this week. I’ve watched “The Phantom Menace” and “Attack Of the Clones” over the weekend and they weren’t bad movies at all. They were pretty good, I must say. I haven’t seen those movies in a long time and they really grew on me after re-watching them. I’m planning on watching Episode III “Revenge of the Sith” this week and am going to re-watch the original trilogy this weekend. Then next week will be episodes 7 & 8.

Some of you may ask, why am I re-watching the Star Wars movies all over again? Well, for one, I need  a memory refresher of the story. I’m re-watching the Star Wars series in order from 1 – 8 and then I’ll watch Episode 9 when December comes. Plus, like I said Disney is making me appreciate Star Wars more and more so I’m re-watching to help celebrate and have fun. Another reason is that Star Trek doesn’t make good movies anymore so that could be another reason why I’ve been getting into Star Wars more.

Star Wars is a great series and I can finally now see why it’s a huge franchise and why it’s a big deal.  I think Disney is doing an amazing job with the new movies. I loved “The Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi” and don’t understand all the hate. I also love the spinoff movies too: “Rogue One” and the Han Solo movie. All really good shit.

As far as the new footage from “Rise of Skywalker” goes, seeing all that makes me stoked for Episode 9 even more. It’s looking like that Rey turns to the Dark Side and C3PO turns to the darkside as well it looks like. I’m sure an evil C3PO is making fans go crazy and they don’t want it to happen probably but I think an evil 3PO is an interesting concept. Does C3PO join Palpatine? Or Palpatine repograms 3PO so he can be evil.

Another question is how is Luke Skywalker gonna return? You know he is going to come back in some form ’cause hence the title, “Rise of Skywalker”. Everybody knows what happened to him in “The Last Jedi” and there’s a pretty good chance Skywalker is coming back ’cause Mark Hamill is still casted in “Rise of Skywalker”. You never know what’s going to happen ’cause this is science fiction and anything can happen in science fiction.

I’m pretty stoked for Episode 9 “Rise of Skywalker” and I will see it in December when it comes out in theaters. I’ll be there for this one for sure. I’m glad they brought Palpatine back and I’m sure Ian McDiarmid is gonna kill it and knock it out of the park with that role once again.

The next 007 film is officially titled, “No Time To Die”…

Check out this cool little teaser revealing the title for Bond 25. It’s officially titled, “No Time To Die”. The title is giving you a hint that this will be the final Daniel Craig 007 film. Is the title hinting us that this film could be killing him off in this one? Could be, we’ll wait and see.

Anyway, I wonder who they’ll get to sing the title theme song for this one? I hope they pick a better theme song for this film ’cause I hated the Sam Smith theme for “Spectre”. While “Spectre” was an amazing film, I hated the opening title theme. Hopefully the opening title sequence for “No Time To Die” will be better.

I’m the biggest 007 fan you’ll ever see… I’ve seen all 24 films and I’ll be seeing this one too. Someday I’m gonna buy the 007 BluRay boxset with the 24 films in them, I really want that.

I’ve seen all the Daniel Craig 007 movies in theater when they first came out so you can betcha I’ll be seeing this one too.

“Rambo: Last Blood” looks like it’s gonna be an action packed ride and I can’t wait!!!

John Rambo may have gotten a haircut but he’s still the same old Rambo. He hasn’t changed a bit.

“Last Blood” looks like it’s gonna be an action packed thrill ride and I can’t wait. I’m also loving the Rambo flashbacks in this teaser and the Col. Trautman voice overs too.

I look more forward to this than Star Wars Episode 9. I’m there for “Last Blood” in Sept which is just a month away!
