Amidst the help that superheroes do to the society, they are regarded as criminals. To put an end to this notion, Devtech owners, Winston and Evelyn Deavor, in cooperation with Elastigirl, create a way that makes superheroes be glorified for their good deeds. Along with this movement, a villain lurks around to put to destruction the big plan. Will the superheroes win over the heart of the people this time around?

Incredibles 2 creates a picture of superheroes being loved by an audience of all ages. The main characters have certain personality that each of the family members will love. For instance, Bob Parr a.k.a. “Mr. Incredible” is a portrait of a perfect father to his children and a loving husband to his wife. Moreover, Helen Parr a.k.a. “Elastigirl” is a mother who is typically caring to her family and has a lot to say when it comes to missions outside the family. In addition to these, Violet Parr and Dash Parr each has certain personality that modern kids possess like being expressive of their feelings and thoughts towards a subject matter. Last but not the least, who will not love an adorable baby named Jack-Jack Parr and who is active and has a lot of cute moves?

In modern films, superheroes are honored for their life-saving acts but this movie views these acts in a whole more intricate way that people will resolve in affirming in a way to it. The plot revolves around this argument and the everyday things that happen to the main characters are fillings to add flavor to it. What’s interesting about the plot is how the supporting events are introduced to the viewers. It works in a way that the suspicion of who spearheaded them is sustained until finally a revelation is made. The suspense is maintained to a level that one will focus on the current scenes rather than analyzing the given clues. That makes it easier to watch the movie.

Incredibles 2 is a Pixar film. I have built a trust in anything made by Pixar that whenever it is a Pixar film, it is good. There is something in a Pixar film that makes it delightfully good. Definitely, Incredibles 2 is another addition to their beautifully done films. The action sequences of the film are crisp and will make your nerves flick to every move that the main characters do. They are high quality scenes. Every bit of the action sequence is made to capture the attention of the viewers and leave your focus stuck to every movement. The animation is great and the characters’ appearance is perfectly tailored to make them effective in the film. Also, the dialogues are smart.

When it is a Pixar film, it surely has lots of lessons and ideas that leave a mark to someone’s heart and mind. Incredibles 2 also has them. The core of its legacy to viewers is the picture of a healthy family. The film shows a modern average-sized family living with a give and take relationship. In that sense, the dialogues of each member of the family to another one are what to look for. They will leave you inspired by how well each of the family members goes together.

This is another well-done film. Its simplicity will make you feel relaxed at the end of the movie and the characters will make you want to see them again. In that note, I would say that I want another continuation story for this film. I give Incredibles 2 an A+.

Rampage

In a sanctuary, a gorilla named George is infected with the genetic engineering project that came from a failed mission. To save him from the adverse effects, the primatologist who takes care of him named Davis Okoye (Dwayne Johnson) has to find the cure. Along the way, Davis meets people who help him save George and the humanity.

In this film, your love and care for animals will be lightly touched. There are scenes in the movie where your feelings towards animals particularly to a gorilla will be enkindled because of how catchy his emotions are. It will remind you of a pet that you have loved for a long time. You just don’t want anything bad to happen to your pet. The same thing goes with George in the film. The movie is successful in captivating the sentiments of the audience when it comes to showing concern for an afflicted animal.

Due to the propagation of news about abused animals, one becomes aware of his thoughts and feelings towards them. The concern that people nowadays have for these animals is continuing to fire up. Having this kind of set up in our society today is a good sign that many care. Just as the news, the film shows how one can react to this kind of situation. The film is a good source of information and gathers support from its viewers.

The film introduces a way to keep the interaction between humans and animals going. This helps the storyline flow and it brings different emotions to the scenes like sadness and happiness. The writers are creative in showing that side of the film. It brings the movie into a whole new level.

Aside from letting you build your feelings towards animals, the movie shows the involvement of science and technology. The use of science and modern technology in the film is just basic however it played the main role in giving a conflict in the story. The film is able to capitalize this use in bringing out a strong plot. Since a branch of science is simply tapped, the message easily gets through. There is no need to know a lot about the specifics of this knowledge to get on with the story. The film basically knows how to capture the excitement of the different viewers with the inclusion of science and technology.

Rampage is an action-filled movie with some touching scenes which are played by George. One particular scene can get the viewers into tears. That’s how moving the film is. That is the effect of having an animal play a role in the movie. On the other hand, the action scenes are intense and can get you at the edge of your seats. The filmmakers carefully created the destruction scenes to be not too violent for the young viewers. There is even a cartoonish fate for some characters in the film.

The film is also a feel-good movie because of the team up of the protagonists and an unexpected turn out of events in the film. There are also funny scenes that will leave you with a good impression of the film.

Dwayne Johnson is a good fit in his role because of some action sequences and he resembles a typical father that is caring to his child which in the movie is his master-animal relationship with the primate, George. However, this relationship is more of a brother-brother relationship because of how cool they are with each other.

This movie is another wake-up call to take care of the animals, big or small. When we do our part, in turn, these animals will show their gratitude towards us. The movie is not short of its call to do good to others including the animals because after all, we all live in the same planet, Earth. I give the movie a B+.

Ready Player One

Ready Player One

In the year 2045 at Columbus, Ohio, virtual reality plays a big role in people’s lives. It is ubiquitous in the world they live in. Users of this technology meet in the virtual world called OASIS. People use avatars as their identity in the OASIS. Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) is a simple man who is a fan of the OASIS. He spends almost all of his life in the OASIS. That is why when the creator of the OASIS, James Halliday (Mark Rylance) dies and offers OASIS to the person who will be able to win the game he created, Wade puts his effort in gunning for the prize. Along the way, Wade meets his co-players Samantha (Olivia Cooke) and his long time best friend in the OASIS, Aech (Lena Waithe). They help each other in avoiding OASIS to fall into the wrong hands.

Ready Player One is another masterpiece of Steven Spielberg. This is a mixture of a set up in the digital world and a moving story that captures the heart. The film is successful in wowing the audience for its brilliantly created CGIs. The emotions of the avatars are intense that is why one will feel very much into the scenes. I salute the creators of the digital aspects of the film. On the other hand, the film does not only invest on the visual technicalities, the story is also a magnificent work. There are surprising lines that will make one feel the sentiments of the characters. They are well-placed in the film.

The setting of the film is believable and possible to be existent. This makes the story easy to relate to. The places are foreseeable to be what the present places will look like in the future when modern technology continues to thrive. The movie also presents some current issues in the society that can still be seen in the future. This also makes the movie very relatable.

There are a lot of remarkable concepts incorporated in the film. They let one be amazed by how intelligently-made a film can be. They add to the enticement of the viewers. For instance, there are academic lines in the film and the hybrid of the two world dimensions are very much appreciated. Aside from the brilliant concepts, the movie also produces a rich soundtrack. The songs are groovy which give the movie a sense of a feel good one. A grand orchestra is also organized to bring out the emotion to some parts of the movie.

Although this is a sci-fi movie, it does not undermine the moral of the story. There are certain parts where you will see the values that are there to let the viewers feel the spirit of goodness. They are effective in the film and they will enkindle in you the support for the protagonists. At one point, the goodness that you will feel will make your little hairs raise.

There is never a dull moment in the movie. Everything is perfectly made to entertain the audience. All in all, Ready Player One is a two-thumbs-up movie to watch. I recommend this movie to be watched by those who admire a sci-fi movie with a touching story. I give it an A.

The Blog: Foreword

I am Lester Varela, a Filipino. I am an average guy who simply wants to write. I realized that writing is the most important thing to do in your entire life because keeping an account of everything that you encounter gives you a chance to relive the memories of the past. Not only your works can benefit you, but others can also share the same sentiments you have with them.

I am starting this blog because I’d like to express my thoughts through writing. I’d like to spend time formulating my ideas on the things that I write. In this blog, I will be sharing my opinions on the movies that I watch. I will be spending minimally on this blog because I have a free pass on the movies that I will be reviewing. I am benefiting from the privileges given by the government to the less fortunate people like me.
