Crank 2: High Voltage

Or: Jason Statham and His New Fetish (Okay that was bad)

People are gonna say a lot of things about this movie, and yeah, whatever, but I fucking love Chev Chelios. This movie is brainless and fun but it was intended this way, see? This is what makes it brilliant. It’s like fuckin Grand Theft Auto, without even having to actually make Grand Theft Auto. Crank 2: High Voltage by far surpasses the first movie. It’s louder, cruder (is that a word?) and dare i say this: better.

For the 3 people out there that did not like, or did not watch the fisrt Crank, Chev Chelios (played by Jason Statham) is a bad ass from Enghlandh (mispellings intended) that fell from a helicopter after surviving a chinese poison (yes, a poison) thats supposedly will make his heart stop if he ran out of adrenaline, thus buying him a perfect, justifiable escuse to do whatever the fuck he wants. In Crank 2, after he fell, he was scooped up and given an artificial heart, which has to be recharged every hour. Thus the plot ensue and we get to see Jason Statham wreck havoc, and makes my heart skip a beat. Crank 2 was so high on surrealism that they had to include montage scenes, title scenes that says “9 seconds later,” and cameos from porn stars.

I read that Crank 2 was shot by cheap cameras straight out of Best Buy, although they used 12 at a time and not afraid to destroy any if deemed necessary.  So you see kids? Cheap cameras + Jason Statham + Strippers + Mechanical Heart + Men’s nipples getting cut off (wait for it..its legendary) = GOOD TIME.

The Verdict: 5 out of 5.

I give it that because, ah hell, as much as I love war movies, holocaust movies, 2 hours of talking movies all those pretentious movies, but Crank 2 can’t be wrong. It blows your brain all over the place.

Slumdog Millionaire

with 2 comments

or..a Hindi Movie with No Big Dance Number (OK maybe one. At the very end)

or..No Hindi Movie can Resist a Big Dance Number at The End

 

I just had to see for myself what 8 Academy Awards and 4 Golden Globes really look like. Well, it is everything I imagined, everything I hoped for and then some. Slumdog Millionaire tells a modern rags-to-rajah story which appeals to almost everyone. Kids, lovers, cultural enthusiasts, award show buffs, people living in slums, gangsters with guns…

If you follow closely, this movie does have that British feel but the theme and most of the execution sticks true to Bollywood cinema. Brothers? Check. Love? Check. Slums? Check. Rags to Riches? Check. Brother turning into an asshole and stealing your girlfriend? Check. Check. Check. 

With awesome soundtracks like Paper Planes by M.I.A (which in my opinion is the ultimate kid-on-top-of-trains hustler’s anthem),with the fast and breathtaking editing similar to the City of God, with the fantasy montage sequences, Slumdog Millionaire hits it out of the ballpark.

I thank this movie for breaking my heart in the first half of the movie and then gluing that shit back together on the second half, for the kid actors who I heard was really living in slums but are getting the help they need, for Danny Boyle, for Dev Patel, for Freida Pinto. I heart you guys. I identify with this because I’m living in a third world country, and its sadly similar. And I do hope this movie does so much more than glamorize poverty and slums. I hope it raises awareness of things, of everythings. If portrayals of deliberately blinded child beggars and child prostitutes could win 8 Oscars, imagine the drama that is their real life. Their stories could win all the awards, but these slum kids would just sell them by the pound.

Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British film directed by Danny Boyle, written by Simon Beaufoy, and co-directed in India by Loveleen Tandan. It is an adaptation of the novel Q & A (2005) by Indian author and diplomat Vikas Swarup.

Set and filmed in India, Slumdog Millionaire tells the story of a young man from the slums of Mumbai who appears on the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and exceeds people’s expectations, arousing the suspicions of the game show host and of law enforcement officials.

Out of the ballpark dope. 5.0 out of 5.0

Kid Cudi – Superboo

leave a comment »

It’s almost like, I’m a musical schizophrenic. So I guess today is fresh kid in hip hop week. You surely must have heard of Kid Cudi, he’s been getting a lot of airplay and mentions recently. He’s been featured in Kanye West’s 808 and Heartbreak Album.

Kid Cudi, whose birth name is Scott Mescudi, is a Hip-hop/Electronica artist from Cleveland, Ohio. His musical career and style is centered around one dream, to “Be on the moon”. His first album, a single called “Day N’ Night” was released on iTunes on February 5th, 2008. Currently “Day N’ Night” holds the #2 spot in the UK. Through his premier on iTunes and through word of mouth, his success continues. His debut album will be released shortly, while a mixtape has been released to satisfy the curiosity and thirst of his listeners for more Kid Cudi.

This is the allegedly fan made video for Kid Cudi – Superboo.

Warning for guys: It’ll make you drool.

Warning for ladies: You’d be begging your man to take nude black and white videos of you and start calling you superboo.

This is probably NSFW, unless you work for Hugh Hefner.

No Country For Old Men

leave a comment »

or..WHO YOU BE CALLING OLD *PEW PEW*

No Country for Old Men is about finding money that does not belong to you and trying to outrun a a guy that looks like Snape (played by Javier Bardem). For a movie that lacks soundtracks, it is compelling. It’s dramatic angle shots one after another.

Okay let me stop trying to pretend I know shit about dramatic angle shots.

I watched this so called masterpiece about a month ago or so. Apparently this movie received an overwhelming response, so i thought Id see it. This movie is bland but effin brilliant. Of course, we are all only interested in Anton Chigurh and his captive bolt pistol. Man, I wish I had one of those.

Dopeness factor: 5.0 out of 5.0

(This is partly because everyone said so. But also for the damn creative uses of the captive bolt pistol)

Wanted

leave a comment »

or..ANgelina Jolie's Incredibly Long Arm

Wanted starts promising. It starts with awesome mind-bending bullet-through-the-sound-barrier technology they did for the Matrix. The bullet fired from miles away was bent, through the window, through the train, onto a human head. I was fed with the constant backsound of heartbeats that would turn Bruce Banner into Hulk.

Then Wanted shows Angelina Jolie, mother of 6, partner of Brad Pitt, kicking ass and shooting stuff.

Fuckin awesome, eh?

Then we are shown a group of assassins who kill whatever name comes up in the Loom of Fate.

Yes. The Loom of Fate.

No, it does not make Fruit of the Loom undies. It’s a mill machine that encode names in binary code into a fabric. 

How?? or an even better question, WHY???

There are more things to love about the movie than the absurd bits. I love Angelina in this movie. I usually like Morgan Freeman, but not this time. I love James McCavoy. I love the bullet through the head scenes. I love the high-adrenaline chases and the orientation beat-ups and the knife trainings.

Beware of the plot twist which goes something like, I AM YOUR FATHER!

Ha ha too late. It was written in the Loom of Fate

Kung Fu Panda

leave a comment »

or..Politically Correct by Showing a Talking Panda Kungfu Master with PANTS

There is a reason why we love animated movies with talking animals in it. Because humans suck. Cause we animate movies, you know, just to have a Panda making noodles and doing kick ass kung fu.

Cause as much as we like fuckfest movies and dramas and torture porns, we LOVE cartoons! Theres a kid in every single one of us. And I love laughing at a joke that is not intelligent nor it is an innuendo. Just plain pandas getting kicked in the butt, or pandas falling down, or tigers getting sat on by a panda. Those things ARE funny!

Kung Fu Panda is sole animation mastery by DreamWorks, which had only been previously mastered by Pixar. There is very few memorable animations about talking animals. I hated The Wild, or Over the Hedge, or whatevers movie with talking animals interacting with humans. If you are going to make animals talk, you might as well dont have to be so correct by placing them with humans. You should make a whole city with animal residents! You should have rhinoceroses as prison wardens! Bunnies and pigs as citizens!

The story’s about Po, who is a waiter at a noodle joint and has a goose for a father (well i’d say hes adopted, but its a touchy subject). Po dreams of being a kung fu warrior and worships the Furious Five, the mightiest warriors of all China. The Furious Five is comprised of a tigress, a mantis, a snake, a baboon and a crane. Pure awesomeness!

Then one day, Po was accidentally chosen as the Dragon Warrior, destined to fight off the enemy that is coming at their village. At first, Po, a flabby Panda with a lovable sense of humor doubts that he is indeed the Dragon Warrior. So did everyone. But we know how these works right? We love the predictable family film formula about “believing in yourself and that there is nothing you cant do if you put you mind to it”. Right?

Dopeness fctor: 4.5 out of 5.0.

Awesome! You might be blind from all the awesomeness! Haha.
