Terminator Genisys + Paper Towns

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 24, 2015, 7:05 PM

Zime's Ramblings

:star: Terminator Genisys
:bulletblue: IMDB: 6.9/10
:bulletblue: Rotten Tomatoes: 26%

Nyahaha! Terrible! Just terrible. Laughably terrible. It has fan fiction written all over it.
It's like someone watched and really loved the first two terminators so much they wanted to retcon certain characters dying.

The new Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor look nothing like the originals, and they have zero chemistry.

The story is unfollowable, but in such a way it's hilarious.

The only thing good about it is old Arnold terminator, but only because old Arnold terminator is funny and a little endearing.

Would fully recommend for fans of bad movies. Others, don't watch ever.

:star: Paper Towns
:bulletblue: IMDB: 6.9/10
:bulletblue: Rotten Tomatoes: 56%

Didn't I mention I see all types of movies? Chick flicks are no exception!

This movie was alright. Since it's based on a book by John Green, and I didn't like The Fault in our Stars very much, I was wary. But this one was better made than that one, I think. It's much less pretentious and the teenagers actually fairly act like teenagers. Hehehe.
The direction and acting was good, and the characters were fine by me.

What I didn't like about it was that it wanted to be deeper than it is (it seems John Green has quite the pretentious side to him), and some of the story doesn't hold together very well. It's kind of like what would happen if you combined Stand by Me and The Breakfast Club and then made it something for a lower reading level, which isn't really a bad thing. Young teenagers gotta get some wholesome entertainment from somewhere.

What the movie's about is this boy who's had a crush on his next door neighbor girl named Margo forever (not so original there), and this girl loves mysteries. The mystery thing is where the movie is a little illogical. Margo loves mysteries and likes to leave clues everywhere.. for various random... things. For no reason. :/ So at some point in the movie Margo decides to run away to find out who she is, and she left clues for the boy of the movie whom she doesn't even know that well. Kind of a leap in logic there.
Now if they'd set up the mysteries thing as something Margo likes to play with her little sister, it'd make a ton more sense that she'd leave clues to random stuff everywhere, but instead she just does it for no real reason. Aww, well.

The first half of the movie before the road trip part was better than the second half, I think. When Margo first disappears and you learn about her friends and goings on, that felt like a much better mystery to piece together than the scraps of paper Margo hid in abandoned buildings. It's a shame it wasn't about the boy piecing what Margo is really like from that rather than turning into a teenage roadtrip movie. ^^;

But anyway! It's decent entertainment for the younger crowd. There were even a few moments that elicited a laugh from me.
See it if you got some young teenagers and you want to take them to the movies, but otherwise skipable.

Hello Zime,
I just finished reading May the Rain Come Down, and I was deeply touched by the story, the characters, the way you presented the story, the art... Thank you for writing it. It gives me hope.

Today has been "eventful" for me. I first learned of your art by seeing one picture in the "Undiscovered" section. Then I learned of a FANTASTIC comic by the name of 'Jupiter', which I am now up-to-date on. Then I learned of a previous comic of yours, 'May the Rain Come', and now I am wiping the tears from my eyes because of how amazing the story was. I tip my hat to you for being so good at art and storytelling! If I could, I would donate SOMETHING to help further the growth of 'Jupiter', but, alas, I cannot. All I can give is my best wishes and regards for it to continue!
