My opinion on “Marauders”

“I don’t care if you smoked last week.What I care about is honesty.If you lie, you withhold facts to get ahead, I’ll cut off your balls and bury you.”

If you’re going to ask me what “Marauders” was about, I’ll owe you the answer. Because to be honest, this was such a complicated story that I couldn’t understand what was happening while watching. Let alone that I could still retell it now. The big jumble of storylines is just as inextricable as a fisherman whose fishing line has become entangled in a bush behind him. However, the beginning was promising. An action-packed and brilliantly filmed bank robbery with the masked robbers working in a concequent way using high-tech gadgets. But unfortunately this is the only thing that causes excitement. The rest is simply too boring and an incomprehensible mess.

 Marauders

Yes, it’s a movie made for Bruce Willis.

And who to expect in a mediocre crime/action film? Yep, Bruce Willis is back. This time it’s not his lamentable acting that makes him look bad, because he doesn’t even get a chance to fail in that. His part is extremely limited, so we only get to see him a few times. And the boredom is easy to read from his facial expression. Although he’s the central figure, the only thing he can produce is some doubtfully frowning. That’s in line with previous roles he played. The only constant in his career at this moment. His picture on the film poster is bigger than his character in the film.

Marauders

The person who could keep up. Call me!

The only character I enjoyed was Christopher Meloni as FBI agent Montgomery. An impressive guy who tries to find out why banks of Hubert International (Bruce Willis is president of) are being robbed. But as I said before, this leads to a fairly complicated tangle of plots and subplots. Before you know it, it’s about a failed military operation in Afghanistan where a soldier was killed (or not?), a group of corrupt agents, corruption at a political level and the wife of a policeman who has cancer. Enough to fill a whole season of a new police serial.

Marauders

Marauders” is again such a film you better forget about quickly. The only thing that kind of stayed with me, is the fact it rained continuously the entire film.

My rating 4/10

Daisy Ridley Promises Epic Lightsaber Duel In ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’

Published

“We in this film actually have perhaps one of the most epic fights in Star Wars.”

The lightsaber duel is a staple of Star Wars lore. Every episode has featured some of the most iconic battles in cinematic history. Many fans were disappointed with the lack of saber action in Episode VII, even though the film primarily focused on Rey trying to discover her true place within the universe. ‘The Last Jedi’ attempted to give us more action but was over shadowed by Director Rian Johnson’s character arc choices. Going into ‘Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker’ J.J. Abrams knows what’s at stake, while bringing us the conclusion to one of the most beloved franchises in movie history. In a recent interview with Wired about Episode IX, Daisy Ridley shed some light on what we can expect in the final installment:

“The interesting thing about this film is that we concentrate more on the fact that [the lightsabers] are light,” Ridley told the publication, “Because the [old] lightsabers were so heavy, as Eunice [Huthart] said, who is our new stunt coordinator, that it was more like broadsword fighting, which isn’t technically what it’s supposed to be because lightsabers are supposed to be light, by nature.”

Since the “Skywalker” lightsaber that was a focal point in ‘Episode VII’ was destroyed during ‘The Last Jedi,’ it would appear that Rey will be getting herself a new “Lighter” saber. Daisy also, went on further to suggest we will be witnessing one of, if not the most epic Star Wars lightsaber duels of all time via Episode IX:

“So they actually made them lighter for us,”the actress continued “We in this film actually have perhaps one of the most epic fights in Star Wars.”

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ has a lot riding on it to properly conclude the “Skywalker Star Wars Saga.” J.J. Abrams is well aware of what’s at stake. One can only imagine that he will pull out all the stops to ensure one of the greatest endings in recent cinematic history.

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Brings Us New Images And Character Details

“I don’t feel like I’m changing the mythology. I think it’s a continuation of the cause and effect”

The James Cameron produced ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has released new images, featuring the old school T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) doing what he does best. The photos also feature Mackenzie Davis who plays Grace a humanoid cyborg, and a new poster featuring the OG cast, Arnold and Linda Hamilton.

Director Tim Miller (Deadpool) is hoping to give fans a fresh look at the Terminator franchise, while keeping with the continuity of the old. He wants fans to understand the cause and effect principle that is constantly reshaping the future:

“I don’t feel like I’m changing the mythology. I think it’s a continuation of the cause and effect that [James Cameron] set up in the other Terminator movies, which is simply if you make a change in the past, it will change the future. So you have to expect that what happened before, or the history that Sarah had been told of the future, was going to change. I don’t look at it as changing mythology. I look at it as the natural outcome of the set of rules that Jim established in the first two movies.”

Arnold has returned as the T-800 in previous Terminator films, from ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines,’ ‘Terminator: Salvation’ and ‘Terminator: Genisys’ which have all been met with tough fan criticism. This time around, Miller hopes to present the terminator in a new way, in which fans have yet to see:

“This version of Arnold is something that Jim has been thinking about for a long time. I think it’s a really great way for him to come back to the franchise. I understood the other movies and the way they handled him, but I didn’t want to do that again. I really thought that the way to do something unique for this film was to have Arnold’s backstory and the way he interacts with the rest of the characters be something we hadn’t seen from that character before… but I also think it has the expected amount of Arnold kicking ass.”

During a recent interview, Arnold was asked how he felt about this recent incarnation of the Terminator franchise and how he felt about the level of action this new film would provide:

“I would say [this movie] is huge action-wise. I was very satisfied with the ideas and the big action that this movie has. It’s really wild.”

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ is set to hit theaters November 1, 2019
