Things relating to movies that I have seen.
Rise of Gru - Waterfall to Steam Door Physics
06 July 2022
“Minions: The Rise of Gru” was pretty good, and tells the origin
story of Gru and his formative years. That’s all well and good, but the
waterfall trap scene was the most interesting piece of the movie to me.
The movie opens with some villains attempting to steal this mystical
artifact from a temple. In order to get into the temple the villain must
reorient these dragons which blow fire to clear away the falling water
by turning it to steam. Is this even possible, and if so how much heat
would it take, and why wouldn’t the opener be singed by the overwhelming
The Lightyear Movie and Resilient Organizations
27 June 2022
“Lightyear” was a very fun movie. It’s not a timeless classic, but I
enjoyed it. There were some serious issues with it, and the overall
organizational structures. I expect better from Pixar on their research,
after all they made one of my all-time favorite movies “Wall-E”. They
got in an actual doctor of fishes in to explain how fishes move for
“Finding Nemo.” As always there will be unmarked spoilers.
Superman - Man of Tomorrow
02 April 2022
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a movie review, but I just finished yet
another DC animated movie, that I think deserves another chance from
critics. It’s “Superman: Man of Tomorrow”. You might think it’s another
generic superman movie, and you would be right, however I need to
applaud the use of Lobo and Parasite, two of my favorite rogues in
Superman’s gallery. Both are really fitting villains for him to face.
Batman Ninja Review
02 June 2018
I just saw “Batman Ninja”, and it is the most over the top action
movie ever. Although it lacks a plot, this movie has some of the best
art ever and the action is completely over the top. I feel the action
more than makes up for the lack of plot.
Review of the Pixels Movie
29 July 2015
I recently went to see Pixels, and I thought it was rather good. Even
though it had an absurd premise. There is a possibility of spoilers
below, so read on with caution if you care about that.
Indominus Rex for President
09 July 2015
The Indominus rex is the ultimate president. He is smart. He is willing to
go to any lengths to survive. He will eat the terrorists, and make them
sorry they ever existed. He will eat the stupid pundits. Therefore
Indominus rex for president. Hey, he’s the lesser of 2 evils. This year
vote for the wolf instead of the wolf in sheep’s clothes. Vote for
Indominus rex for president in 2016.
Idiot Engineering #1 - Jurassic World
28 June 2015
I just decided to start a series about idiotic engineering in movies. The
first movie I’m going to do is Jurassic World. Which is an
awesome movie, however it is full of idiot engineering. So fair warning
there will be spoilers below, so if you haven’t seen it stop reading
now, or keep reading for a detailed examination of the engineering
failures in Jurassic World, and how they could have been prevented.
