Last week I went and saw the new Japanese animated film ‘Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale‘.
This is a film based on the highly polarizing Japanese animated series ‘Sword Art Online‘ and is a continuation of the main series.
The film centers around a newly released AR (Augmented Reality) headset, the Augma, and the highly popular game released for it, Ordinal Scale. All is well, until the event bosses appearing in the game look to be taken straight from the original Sword Art Online game and mysterious things start to happen to those who encounter them.
The other day, I saw the new Legendary Pictures monster movie, ‘Kong: Skull Island‘.
First of all, this movie is definitely a step up from Legendary’s 2014 ‘Godzilla‘ movie. ‘Godzilla‘ was a film with little focus on the title monster and a cast of almost entirely boring characters. The film was also way too dark 80% of the time, making it hard to see what was even going on on-screen.
‘Kong‘ is basically the exact opposite of this.
Just yesterday I saw the brand-new “superhero” action film, ‘Logan‘.
I’m going to say this now and get it out of the way, you will be getting the most out of this film if you, like me, have been following the past 17 years of X-Men films. Despite the fact that there is no inherent mention of it in the title this is the 9th X-Men film and the third film in the ‘Wolverine series’. This movie also stands as Hugh Jackman’s final film acting as the character Wolverine, who he has been playing for the past 17 years.
Recently, I went out to see the newly released Japanese animated film, ‘Your Name‘.
The film is the newest film from Makoto Shinkai, known for some of his more recent films such as ‘The Garden of Words‘ and ‘5 Centimeters Per Second‘.
The film sets itself up as a kind of romance or slice-of-life film, but with a twist: the two main characters, Taki (left) and Mitsuha (right) switch bodies when they go to sleep at night and will then have to live out the next day as the other person until they go to sleep again.
