Spider-Man: Homecoming Leirmheas

 

Cheapfá nach mbeafaí in ann scannán eile a chruthú as an scéal céanna ach geallaim duit cuirtear casadh úr agus spleodrach ar Spider-Man. Tá an scannán suite i suíomh ardscoil Meiriceánach tipiciúil. Is léir nach bhfuil an-ghean air Peter Parker (Tom Holland) ar scoil. Is iarmharán é agus is ball den chlub deacatlan é.

Tosaíonn Homecoming i ndiaidh an ionradh ar Nua-Eabhrac a bhí ar siúl i rith The Avengers, freagraíonn sé ceist an lucht féachana; cad a tharla den chathair tar éis an cogadh cathrach?

Tá go leor téamaí uilíocha tríd mar shampla, cairdeas faighimid léargas iontach den chairdeas idir Peter agus Ned. Is carachtar greannmhar, geanúil agus saoithín é Ned. Le linn an scannáin athraíonn a ról go dtí cúntóir nó mar a glaonn Spidey air “An fear sa chathair”. Tugann an scannán léargas úr ar fíor chairdeas.

Téama eile ná ógántacht. Ceapainn Peter go bhfuil sé réidh a bheith mar bhall den fhoireann mhór “The Avengers” ach tá Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr) ag déanamh meantóireacht air agus níl sé róchinnte. Tá an caidreamh idir athair/mac míchompordach  agus greannmhar fad is a fhorbraíonn sé.

Níl sé cáilithe mar laoch go fóill, agus caitheann sé cuid mhaith den scannáin ag dhéanamh cad a dhéanann déagóirí an lae inniu; ag déanamh botúin ollmhóra agus damáiste do gach rud ina dtreo.

Tá gnéithe den bhun-plota fite fuaite tríd go cliste agus go slítheánta, leis an ngnáthphlota agus cúpla casadh curtha leis. Tá an-tóir ar an scannán seo do pháistí, déagóirí, daoine fásta, fanaiceach Marvel nó duine nach bhfuil mórán suime acu i sárlaochra. Is léir go bhfuil rud éigean go gach duine sa scannán seo a ghluaiseann go tapaidh agus atá lán de bomaite grinn.

Cloisim daoine á rá gurbh é Tom Holland an “Spider-Man is fearr” agus caithfidh mé a rá go bhfuil mé i gcomhaontú leo. Tá Marvel tar éis cinntú go bhfuil Spider-Man slán sábháilte ina lámha.

Cars 3 Review

Pixar Animation Studios are back with this the third instalment of the popular Cars animated Movies. It was looking a bit like Cars was beginning to run its course when Cars 2 came out in 2011 and It’s good to see they have gone back to basics in this one as we see Lighting McQueen who is still being voiced by Owen Wilson back in his underdog run. This was I feel why the first movie worked so well. It may or may not be the end of the road for this franchise after this movie but one thing is for sure, this is a vast improvement on the second offering.

Cars 3 sees Lighting McQueen who is now getting a bit older and seems to be falling behind the new more powerful up and coming cars. Lighting needs to revaluate his life and motivations in order to reclaim his spot at the top of the pecking order by using his smarts to outwit his rivals as he no longer can match them for speed.

Cars 3 should go down feel with the younger ones at the cinemas. Pixar seems to have come up with a type of Children’s Rocky Movie which I’m sure is one of the reasons for this movies appeal. It’s a tossup between this one and the first Cars movie as to which is the best in the series, personally I think Cars 3 might just shade it.

Spider-man: Homecoming Review

The Marvel cinematic universe is showing no signs of slowing down in this there sixteenth movie and second reboot of the Spiderman franchise. The film is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland as Spiderman and Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes / Vulture, Robert Downey Jr does reprises his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man for this movie but doesn’t over stay his screen time as many feared he would as this is definitely a standalone Spiderman Movie. Other cast members include Marisa Tomei as Aunt May and Laura Harrier as Liz.

 

This Movies carriers on from Tom Holland debut as Spiderman in Captain American Civil War. Tony Stark is seeing thanking him for his help and promises to call him again when the avengers need his assistance. As the months go on that call never comes and Spiderman consigns himself to stopping petty crimes around the Queens New York area.  When he comes across Tomes and almost dies things change for young Peter as the stake have just got higher with the introduction of the Vulture and his gang of criminals with secret stolen Hi-Tech alien equipment.

 

 

This Movie really is a refreshing change to the previous Spiderman movies, this time it is assumed we all know how Peter was bitten by a spider, blaming himself for Uncle Ben’s death and all that stuff. This time we join peter as he is learning to juggle his school responsibilities along with trying to become a super hero. I feel they got the balance of action and comedy just right as there are lots of one liners and references to other movies which are funny. Tom Holland is excellent as Spiderman; he brings a totally new feel to the character as Peter is portrayed as innocent and naïve. Michael Keaton as the villain of the piece also does a fine job in this very fine movie.

Léirmheas Despicable Me 3

Tá drochdhuine nua sa scannán Despicable Mé 3 “Baltazar Bratt”; gasúr réaltachta óna 80idí atá ag iarraidh díoltas a bhaint amach ar an domhan mar cuireadh a sheó teilifíse cáiliúil ar ceal. Spreagtha óna theaghlach uchtaigh; Margo (Miranda Cosgrave), Edith agus Anges tá Gru (Steve Carrell) tar éis a shaol coiriúlachat a fhágáil taobh thiar de ina ionad tá sé ag obair taobh le taobh lena bheanchéile nua Lucy (Kristen Wiig) mar gníomhaire i gcoinne na drochdhaoine.

Ní tuisce d’fhulaing sé go huafásach ina shaol ghairmiúla, cuireadh a shaol phearsanta bunoscionn chomh maith nuair a bhuaileann sé lena dheartháir anaithnid Dru. Tugann sé cuireadh dóibh cuairt a thabhairt dá bhaile dúcháis “Freedonia”. Oibríonn an beirt acu le chéile chun stop a chur le Baltazar Bratt.

Cé nach bhfuil ról lárnach acu i bplota an scannáin ach ar ndóigh feictear na Minions ionúine; Bob, Stuart, Kevin agus an Crú atá tar éis croí na ndaoine a mhealladh. B’fhéidir gurbh é an fáth le seo ná go bhfuil Universal ag obair ar scannán iomlán dírithe ar na Minions.

Tá an plota simplí agus uilíoch ach níl mórán téagar sa scannán mar shampla feicimid Lucy ag streachailt ina ról nua mar leasmháthair agus Agnes atá dúghafa le aonbheannach fíor a fháil ach faoi dheireadh an scannáin níl mórán réitithe. Ní é an scannán is fearr sa tríológ é ach is scannán taithneamhach é do pháistí agus tá roinnt scéalta grinn curtha isteach ann chun tuisimitheoirí a choinneál sásta.

Thit an domhan i ngrá leis na créatúir bheaga, buí i 2010 agus is léir go bhfuil sin go leor chun duine a mhealladh chun an scannán a feiceáil. Ar deireadh is scannán a bhfuil an-ghean ag daoine air mar sin mholfainn dul chun é a fheiceáil.

Rock Dog Review

Rock Dog Review

Rock Dog is the new animated Family adventure movie by Mandoo Pictures and the Huayi Brothers. The Movie is based on the Chinese graphic novel Tibetan Rock Dog by Zheng Jun and features the voices of Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, Matt Dillon and Sam Elliott. Rock Dog may seem a little like a rip off of the recent very successful Sing Movie and that may or may not be true. That doesn’t make it a bad movie, far from it as this movie is quiet entertaining and funny in its own way.

The Story follows Bodi (Luke Wilson) who is a young Tibetan Mastiff who is expected by his father Khampa (J. K. Simmons) to be the next guard of the sheep Village of Snow Mountain which is on constant alert for attacks from the wolves. When a passing plane drops a radio out of the sky and it is found by young Bodi, His dreams suddenly change as he now want to leave Snow Mountain and follow in the footsteps of his hero the singing rock god Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard).  What follows is a crazy adventure as bodi chases his dreams in the big city.

Rock dog has a running time of approx. 90 minutes which perfect really as its long enough to still keep you interested throughout. The Younger ones will especially like this one as there is plenty of songs and music throughout. The soundtrack may not be a string of classic his like the sing movie but still it has a very good selection of music. Rock Dog is not going to end up being a classic but still it’s a nice one to bring the kids too.

Cardboard Gangsters Review

Cardboard Gangster is an Irish crime Movie based in Darndale, Dublin. The Movie has a largely Irish cast with the most well-known being John Connor who people well certainly remember from Love/Hate. It does seem like John Connor maybe getting a bit stereotyped in this type of role but nobody will complain because very few can do it better. Set in Darndale in the north side of Dublin city the movie follows the exploits of Jason Connolly (John Connor) and his gang who have grown tired of dealing in small time drug dealing. They decide to try and enter the big time by taking over the drugs sales in Darndale. Standing in there way is Derra and his gang who have ruled Darndales’s drug seen for many years with Jason affair with his wife adding fuel to an already volatile situation.

Cardboard Gangster can be funny at different stages of the movie even though it’s not really supposed to be, there is also a lot of violence in the movies which may not be liked by everybody that will go to see the Movie. John Connor just seems to be getting better and better every time we see him on the big or small screen. Early indication suggest Cardboard Gangster will do well on its Irish release and that will be totally deserved as the Movie was very well written and the acting was impressive all round. The Movie also had recent success at the Manchester film festival which is sure to add to the movies appeal internationally.

Wonder Woman Review

Wonder Woman Review

DC Comics are back with this the fourth instalment of their extended universe. Many will recall Wonder woman’s brief but memorable teaser appearance in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and will be delighted to see her back with her own movie. Gal Gadot takes the lead role as the title character with Chris Pine providing excellent back up as American pilot Steve Trevor, who crashes offshore of Wonder Woman’s Amazon island of Themyscira. The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins with filming taking place in the United Kingdom, France and Italy. Production ended in May 2016 and the movie was released here on June 1st 2017.

The Plot of the movies unfolds when Diana Prince shown in present day receives a world war one photograph delivered to her office by Wayne enterprises. As she looks at the picture she starts to recall her passed and we are taken back to 1918 to the Island where wonder woman was created by the gods to fights against the God of War Aries. When Captain Steve Trevor crash lands on the island he is followed by German soldiers who attack the island in their effort to kill Steve. This is where Diana learns about World War 1 and is convinced it is caused by Aries the god of war. She knows it is her duty to seek out Aries and kill him as she feels this will return the world to peace again.

Chris Pine and Gal Gadot have an excellent on screen chemistry together and helped to create a truly entertaining movie which is filled with action and excitement throughout. At over 2 hours long it is not a short movie by any mean but does not feel long as it ticked along very smoothly with no real lull in the movie at all. A lot of the recent super hero movies have not performed as well as expected despite been big name remakes of already popular super hero franchises. Wonder woman however will not be going down the same route as it will be no surprise to see it doing very well at the box office. This May have been the first full movie with Wonder Woman in the feature role but will not be the last.

Léirmheas Logan

Scannán foréigneach, eipiciúil, ach daonna é seo thar aon rud eile, cé go mbaineann sé leis na sárlaochra sóite atá aithne mhaith ag mórchuid leantóirí X-men orthu. Neamhchosúil leis an chuid is mó scannáin X-men a tháinig roimhe, áfach, bhí Logan stiúrtha ar nós scannán Western clasaiceach – agus déantar tagairt díreach orthu siúd nuair a bhíonn na príomhcharachtair ag féachaint ar radharc Unforgiven, ag Clint Eastwood, i seomra óstáin. Ní chuirtear mórán béime ar chuimsiú sóisialta na “ndaoine difriúla” sa scannán seo toisc go bhfuil sé dírithe níos mó ar theaghlach, misneach agus an coimhlint idir an mhaith agus an t-olc.

Tarlaíonn scéal an scannáin seo sa bhliain 2029, agus baineann sé leis an t-aon duine sóite atá fágtha – Logan, a dtugtar Wolverine air. Tosnaíonn sé le radharc ina bhfeictear a chró fólaigh agus cuid dá shaol mar thiománaí meánaosta atá dobrónach, gan aird sa saol. Níl comhluadar aige ach Caliban agus Professor X, atá taomanna air chomh cumhachtach lena hinchinn neamhghnách. Nuair a bhualann Logan le cailín sóite a bhí faoi chúram bhanaltra Meicsiceach, áfach, faigheann sé cuspóir nua lena shaol – ach ní gan dúshláin a thagann an deis “tuistithe” sin: tá namhad sa tóir uirthi agus ar pháistí eile atá cumhacht osnádúrtha orthu. An eireoidh le Wolverine iad a chosaint?

Briseann Logan cliché a bhaineann le páistí san earnáil scannánaíochta: in áit daoine óga gleoite sobhriste, feictear sárlaochra atá ábalta tiomáint, foirgnimh a thógáil, agus nach bhfuil eagla orthu namhaid a mharú – ach is páistí iad fós, agus is féidir é sin a aithint anois is arís, go háirithe nuair a bhíonn Laura (páiste Logan) ag súgradh.

Is greannmhar na himeartais focail le cúrsaí reatha Mheiriceá sa scannán seo: úsáidtear “fake news” nuair a dúirt Laura gur féidir teacht ar Eden na ndaoine sóite i Meiriceá, agus ní chreideann Logan ar an scéal. Chomh maith leis, Donald is ainm leis an namhad nua atá ag na X-men. Is cosúil gur faisean nua atá ann do na scannáin sárlaochra amach anseo.
