Extinction is beyond good! Action-packed and some really great twists. Because of those awesome twists, I’m not going to tell you anything about this movie. Other than, it was fantastic. So freaking fantastic. I absolutely loved this movie.
Me, watching on my computer: That is so f*d up.
Husband: What’s f*d up?
Me: This movie, but in a really, really good way. I’m not going to tell you anything else. You have to watch this movie.
So, I’m just going to tell all of you, it gets the coveted beer is optional rating. Streaming on Netflix. Watch before someone spoils it for you.
I can’t say the same for Singularity. This is a dystopian where robots have taken over the world. A teenage boy, Andrew (Julian Schaffner) and a teenage girl, Calia (Jeannine Wacker), form an unlikely alliance to reach a new world, where it is rumored mankind exists without fear of robot persecution. But does this world actually exist? And will they live long enough to find out?
I didn’t care. I stopped watching half way through. This movie was… boring. It didn’t make sense as to… never mind. If it had been entertaining, I wouldn’t care if it made sense. Obviously. Who loves Sharknado? Me. Singularity gets the opposite rating: not enough beer. Also streaming on Netflix. Yeah, don’t bother.
If you want to watch a dystopian with teenagers saving the world, (I really don’t get why it’s always the teenagers, but oh well) I do recommend The Rain. It’s a Danish television series streaming on Netflix, and it’s not at all boring.
Rain carries a deadly virus. If you’re caught outside, you’re going to die horribly. Really horribly. You don’t want to catch that sh*t. A brother and sister spend some years in a bunker, safe and isolated. Food is running out and they have to leave. The rain is still dangerous and so are the other survivors.
The Meg plain disappointed me. Fortunately, we had racked up enough Regal points that our tickets were free, and I always love an afternoon with Cheetos popcorn. I think they read my previous posts. It now comes in flaming hot and regular. Way to go Cheetos people!
Flaming hot Cheetos popcorn was the highlight of the movie. Siiigh. I wish it weren’t. I mean, here was this gigantic shark and they were so lame. Honestly, they should have hired me as their shark movie consultant. I would have said, “No, no, no.”
The shark didn’t come on screen for at least 30 minutes. It wasn’t nearly big enough. It didn’t eat enough people or much of anything. There were a few awesome scenes, but not enough. You know what I’d do if I had a giant shark and got some money to make a movie? That giant shark would eat everything. It’d start fires and gobble up ocean liners and cities. I’d have a blast unleashing a giant shark on a fictional world.
Because I was so disappointed, I give The Meg a 3 beer rating. If it had caused more death and destruction, I would up the rating… imagining it doesn’t count. I’m hoping The Asylum (Sharknado people) did better with The Megladon. Bet their shark eats more people.
