Summer Wars I've always found just average. The animation is good, but the story and characters are just kind of whatever. It's literally just Digimon, but slightly different. The movie got way over praised.
Not all modern anime is bad. You're just not interested in most of it, or have seen it before already. Not every person that likes newer anime is some 12-year-old boy or girl. There are plenty people your age, my age, or older that enjoy the newer stuff. But YoVideoGames crew needs to stop talking about anime. Cuz they bring it up when nobody asked several times. This will probably last time I bring up one of these rants, cuz I'm not going to give it any more attention than it's due.Once you seen enough anime, it does not excite people anymore, that's why most anime's are loved by kids and teens until they get older and seen enough...does not mean anime is bad, its just we seen enough.
I still remember seeing the preview for it and thinking regardless of how good or bad it was that people weren't going to give it a shot because they'd shrug it off as something dumb and goofy because of the scenes of the MC in his tighty whiteys running from an exploding mobile home.I think television overall would be better off if Breaking Bad had flopped in its first season because as far as I'm concerned that show was fucking poison.
The first one wasn't targeting Muslims/Arabs, but was still pretty blatant chest-beating US propaganda for GOP types, IIRC. And it didn't even have the charm of turning into a buddy cop action movie with no-Obama and a security guard, which, fair enough.London Has Fallen on the other hand, can get fucked. It is straight up anti-Muslim and Arab propaganda. It is tailor-made for right wing nuts and Trump supporters.
That too. At least with the first movie, you could kind of ignore it. At least I was able to do so. I figured the reason why they went for PMCs in the third movie, was because going after another ethnic target would cause issues, so they went with the safest and easiest bet. America's number one hate figure: other Americans!The first one wasn't targeting Muslims/Arabs, but was still pretty blatant chest-beating US propaganda for GOP types, IIRC.

Seconded, mostly because I shared this opinion until I really started watching it -How?

London has Fallen irritates me because the movie seems to assume Great Britain would allow heads of state and/or government to go unprotected aside from whatever security they bring with them and that London would totally not be drowning in armed police, security services teams and military counter-terrorism units during such an event.Of the two Die Hard, But In The White House movies, I still say White House Down is better. Between these two, it's all boils down to personal tastes though. I will say OHF leans in on the hard R-Rating and has better action because of it. The action is nothing new, but it's between decent and good, and doesn't do the whole shaky cam thing. WHD is PG-13, and it harms some of the action scenes. They're not bad either, but I wouldn't mind if this was at least a little harder PG-13, or just regular R. Also, a lot of the special effects in WHD look between ok & crap, or has some very obvious CGI. OHF's other problem is that it takes itself too seriously. I don't find it that big of a deal breaker, but of something to note. Both are still better Die Hard movies, than the 5th movie
London Has Fallen on the other hand, can get fucked. It is straight up anti-Muslim and Arab propaganda. It is tailor-made for right wing nuts and Trump supporters. It's a movie from 2014 that still acts like it's between 2001 and 2008 again. There's some decent action, but you can tell that the movie was on a lower budget and it shows. Also, it's "one take" action scene, it's just okay. It's nothing you haven't seen before, but you can tell they cut some corners and cheated to make it look like one take. The only good thing out of it, is that they got Captain Price to be in the movie. Otherwise, it's not worth the 90 minutes to waste.
I still have not seen Angel Has Fallen yet. I heard it's better than the second movie, but I honestly have almost little to no interest. The only good thing about it, is Nick Nolte is in AHF. I'll probably watch it just for him when he shows up.
I see where Matt Damon is coming from, but I do feel the "they don't make them like they used to anymore" gets thrown out so much. I don't constantly agree with streaming services either, nor believe they are the be all to end all. Considering when something does well on streaming, theater, and later comes to DVD/Blu-Ray, not much has change. Now the type of film Matt Damon is talking about, you can still find in the niche and indie circuit, or straight-to-home video. Hell, from what he described in the clip, that type of story concept you can find in any TV show, or TV show streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc.Not sure if this is a hot take but it's interesting and I've got no better section to post it.
It helps in my case that I only watch what interests me, and not trying to constantly follow the hype-train, fad, nor watching every show to be part of every conversation.Streaming services are a blight on media
Counterpoints:In regards to a recent and very publicized hot take -
I guess that makes sense. Basically to each their own, so no harm nor foul here.
