Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (1998)

It’s a pretty typical spy movie of that period with bondian flare to match its comics source. It even has a mumbling rookie. Who is so smart that he invaded a known paranoic’s lair uninvited without announcing himself first. And Fury never used his shotgun. After the MCU these one-off artefacts are very interesting, especially […]

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Scarlet Witch in 2,5verse of light delirium. So-o-o, people who didn’t watch that one soap opera are entirely screwed. This is nothing but a direct sequel to WandaVision and basically nothing else. This is an adventure in a parallel world movie with a minor role from another parallel world. It’s also a mystical magical movie. […]

晴雅集 [Qing ya ji]

English subtitles. It’s a dramatic drama fantasy/mysticism epic based on the Onmyoji. It’s alright. So the protagonist here is called Qíngmíng just like in that movie based on the game. But the game is in japanese only and it properly calls him Seimei Abe. Also that film isn’t even based on the game’s story, at […]

陰陽師II [Onmyoji 2]

Russian subtitles. This is a direct sequel to Onmyoji so the main cast returns. It’s a historical mythical drama with a plot based around Yamata no Orochi and Susanoo. If the daddy was praying to Orochi, why did the serpent decided to reincarnate its enemy? This is a cool movie, but it really drags and […]

侍神令 [Shì shén lìng]

Russian subtitles A very fantasy movie based on a game based on a book. This is my first contact with Onmyoji so that won’t help me anyway. It’s cool and interesting and varied. But also it’s very long, has a lot of weakly implemented flashbacks and overly dramatic with brutality.  

Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D.

It’s a classic superhero story where it starts and finishes inside the same movie, instead of having an origins story and fifty crossover events. But also since it’s made by Troma it’s a not very PC ironic slapstick comedy with minor gore and some bare bosoms. It’s an enjoyable film and the practical effects are […]

Treasure Planet

Another one of “treasure island in space” films, this time it’s a 2,5D animated entry from disney. And as with everything else — what disney touches it turns it into crap. The curse of king Κόπρας.They created a stupid format and shove it into every property they steal. Why can’t disney not dirty something with […]
