Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Disappointing.

While Julianne Moore is delicious as the Big Bad, it almost feels like a retread of the first one. And that had the element of surprise on its side. Read more... )

But DAMN, Pedro Pascal is fucking hot.

Limitless

I'm starting a rewatch of Limitless, and seriously, I'm still super-pissed that they cancelled this show. It was a fun procedural with an entertaining lead in Jake McDorman. I can't believe they didn't give it a 2nd season at the very least!

Raiders of the Lost Ark

While I appreciate the rakish sexiness of Han Solo, I think that nothing can compare to peak Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones.

Spiderman Homecoming

I really really like it. It's the best Spiderman movie since Spiderman 2, and probably part of the reason why is that it features the best villain we've seen in the MCU (I just realized that Michael Keaton was the lead in Birdman *wink wink*). The main reasons why is that Tom Holland is the best Spiderman/Peter Parker like ever, and the story/movie lets him be the kid that he really is. It also reminds me of Ant-Man because it's really a small movie, masquerading as a blockbuster -- the story and conflict is localized, the concerns (especially Peter's) are not about the fate of the world/universe but are serious all the same.

Count of Monte Cristo

I'm currently watching and I'm always pleasantly surprised to be reminded that Henry Cavill was in this. He was such a baby in this, but even then, his wide, beaming smile is recognizable.

Sense8 Season 2

I just binged watched it and the long hiatus was worth it. It's better in so many ways than the first season. I was one of those people who was not really enamored with the show, and joked that I only stay for the clusterfucks (sorrynotsorry) but I'm glad I gave it another chance.

I think that the Wachowski excel at world-building -- I mean, look at The Matrix and Jupiter Ascending -- so it's fascinating what they cooked up for us in the 2nd season. Read more... )

All That Jazz

I watched the movie over the weekend, I think it's an interesting piece of work; it works like a a fabulous fever dream, totally in line with what's happening to the lead character. I have a fondness for this mainly because I think that this was the reason for my sexual awakening...that term makes me laugh, but I think it's very apt. I had an inkling I was gay way before this but it was like this boy is cute, that one is adorable, etc. When I watched this movie, I totally latched onto one male dancer, Autumn, which would climax (pun intended) in Take Off With Us.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

It's the best sequel since The Winter Soldier. Groot slays every time he's on screen and surprisingly, it's more emotional than the first movie. I want to watch it again.

Thor

They're having a MCU Marathon (on Star Movies) that will lead up to the premiere of CA Civil War Tonight. No Iron Man movies, which is fine -- he/RDJ is already overexposed as it is. I forgot how heartbreaking that scene where Thor tries to lift Mjolnir and discovers that he can't.

Spider-Man Homecoming

aka Iron Man 5: Meet My Protege, Spider-Man. You might know him from his surprise bit from Iron Man 4: Avengers Disassembled, With Special Guest Star Captain America.

Beauty and the Beast

The best thing about it was Luke Evans as Gaston.

The Real O'Neals

Watching a shirtless Jay R Ferguson smoking his meat, is making me feel things. What a daddy.

Hoo La La

This made me smile. Plus, those hips are mesmerizing.

Furious 7

I haven't watched this. I tried once but I started crying at the opening credits. So I don't watch this. But I caught the ending recently -- and yes, I cried -- I think that it was sweet that basically, the ending (and most likely, the movie) was retooled to be an ode to Paul Walker.

(no subject)

It's really weird to have a preference in identical twins. I mean, I find Aaron Ashmore sexier than Shawn -- they have the same face but I'm attracted more to Aaron. The only time I really found Shawn sexy was when he had that beard in Days of Future Past.

Sorry, I just finished watching the latest Killjoys.

Ghostbusters

I had an awesome time. It pays homage to the original but still made it their own. All the ladies kicked ass, which was just wonderful to watch. I'm a gay man but I have a crush on Kate McKinnon's Jillian Holtzmann. And Chris Hemsworth, in between MCU movies, should always do comedies. None of these tryhard leading man roles, he should always leverage that face and body to the service of making us confused by making us laugh as well as getting us horny.

Preacher

I love it. It's fun and Ruth Negga and Joe Gilgun are fantastic. And I love Dom Cooper's hobitty face.
