Dead Rising: Endgame (2016)
A Great Zombie Movie, if not one the Best
This movie was Amazing! The directors Learned from their 1st movie, and made it even better by taking all the best of the potential of Dead Rising and put it into this film! Whoever says this movie is crap Does Not Know What They Are Saying, because this is hands-down one of the Best Zombie movies on the list! It has awesome action scenes, a great build-up, sensible enough plot, and they don't make the ending a long montage about what happened! Definitely worth a watch if you want a zombie-action movie. I don't think the Very ending should have happened that way precisely, but it makes sense and I don't think it deserves any loss in score. Excellent job here, and worth the Shelf even if you don't watch the prelude movie!
I'd rate this a 9.5 but I'll put 10 because it was just This great. Sure, every movie has some problems. This movie had an unlikely coincidence in the tunnels, the lady-ceo was Crazy-crazy which is (not) unrealistic, Dennis Haysbert could have had a larger role (but he is a General, not a Footsoldier), and the opening was a bit too coincidental; But That's About It. This movie has an Amazing action sequence at the end, lots of good cinematography, a quality story that ties in Watchtower (which is objectively Worse than this film in every way, so anyone saying it is better doesn't know what they are talking about), and a cool Dead Rising Cameo also! Jesse Metcalfe Nailed this role, and so did Keegan Tracey!
This film is cool, makes sense, and the plot unfolds well and I have No problems with it overall. People who want to cry because it isn't a billion dollar super-action Marvel film are the haters on this film, because this film was Awesome. It also shows the direction of Dead Rising 3 And 4, with Direct References to DR1+2, so unless they played All these games then they don't know what they are saying about "not a good Dead Rising film," Which It Is.
100% worth a watch, and I'm adding it to my shelf. If I watch it 2 or 3 more times it Might go down to a 9, but that is the Minimum this film Deserves.
The game Dead Rising 1 is still well worth a play before (or after) this. Case West is also good except the last boss fight which the regular Dead Rising 2 did Way better if you get the full game ending. Dead Rising 1 and 2 are the "canon" preludes to both these movies while Case West is a spin-off but still a better game.
The Open House (2018)
Absolutely Absurd "Don't Go In There!" Horror-Comedy
If you have never watched horror films in your life or are above 60 years old, then this movie might be for you. Otherwise, it is a tedious test of patience watching these mindless pawns move around the board, with Every viewer watching thinking the entire time "Seriously, what are you doing."
Skip this one in entirety. The Only good thing it does is set up a great atmosphere and a great serial killer that his utter silence is only matched by his criminal intelligence. Also an amazing scene with contact lenses but other than this it is just silly. Silly and Boring ultimately. +2 stars for that scene but sadly it only lasts for about a minute and is not worth watching just to see this 1-minute happening.
Shin Seiki Evangelion (1995)
Unsure what people were watching
This anime has many "impressive" fight scenes, even though anime fights can make anything happen for any reason often throwing all logic and reason out the window to promote the protagonists... and this anime is No Exception.
this anime is basically a long, overly-long, sob-story about a little boy who "doesn't want to save the world" and shows in almost every episode him crying about his problems of being a hero. It is Brutally melodramatic, and even the Characters In The Show let you know this same feeling, constantly telling this little baby to man up and do it to literally save humanity. And the ending, including the movies.. oh my god the movies... such a waste of time.
I could recommend 100 anime's over this one, and if you like those types of anime's that are convoluted and confusing to the point of making no sense at all, if or when you actually do get it it makes you sick to your stomach that you didn't skip it entirely, and has anime fights that are added for padding just to promote the idea while allowing the main characters to be basically immortal while doing impossible things just to extend the plot into a movie "series," then Skip This. Just an awful "I hope this gets better" binge watch until you quickly realize in the last episode that the last episode is the Worst in the series, so brace yourself for that.
