Films en series: Agents of shield, Sense8, Black Mirror, Finding Neverland, Daredevil, Star Trek & Star Trek Into Darkness

Ik houdt op mijn blog al een tijdje bij welke films en series ik kijk. Nu ben ik dit al een tijdje vergeten dus hierbij een langere update :)


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
After the Battle of New York, the world has changed. It now knows not only about the Avengers, but also the powerful menaces that require those superheroes and more to face them. In response, Phil Coulson of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division assembles an elite covert team to find and deal with these threats wherever they are found. With a world rapidly becoming more bizarre and dangerous than ever before as the supervillains arise, these agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are ready to take them on.
Cijfer: 10. Meer meer meer! Spannend, leuk, goede verhaallijnen, goed uitgewerkte personages, interessante raakvlakken met andere marvel verhalen die voor en tijdens de serie afspelen (Avenger, Captain America Winter Soldier) en ook andere marvel characters die ook voorbij komen (Thor, Lady Sif). Seizoen 3 is nu op tv in Amerika dus hopelijk snel online!

Sense8 tells the story of eight strangers: Will (Smith), Riley (Middleton), Capheus (Ameen), Sun (Bae), Lito (Silvestre), Kala (Desai), Wolfgang (Riemelt), and Nomi (Clayton). Each individual is from a different culture and part of the world. In the aftermath of a tragic death they all experience through what they perceive as dreams or visions, they suddenly find themselves growing mentally and emotionally connected. While trying to figure how and why this connection happened and what it means, a mysterious man named Jonas tries to help the eight. Meanwhile, another stranger called Whispers attempts to hunt them down, using the same sensate power to gain full access to a sensate’s mind (thoughts/sight) after looking into their eyes. Each episode reflects the views of the characters interacting with each other while delving deeper into their backgrounds and what sets them apart and brings them together with the others.

Cijfer: 9. Je blijft maar doorkijken. De eerste episode vond ik een beetje wazig en wist niet wat ik nu moest verwachten maar verder in de serie komen de links tussen de personen en hun overeenkomsten en verschillen steeds beter naar voren.

Black Mirror
Black Mirror is a British television anthology series created by Charlie Brooker that features speculative fiction with dark and sometimes satirical themes that examine modern society, particularly with regard to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies.

Cijfer: 8,5. Elke episode is eigenlijk een korte film. De verhalen en werelden zijn absurd en zullen nooit zo worden maar ze zijn wel heel metaforisch naar hoe de wereld nu wel is en waar de wereld wel heen kan gaan.

Finding Neverland
The movie details the experiences of “Peter Pan” author J.M. Barrie, which lead him to write the children’s classic. He got to know four children who have no father. Drawing from his time with the kids, he writes a story about children who don’t want to grow up.

Cijfer: 7,5. Mooie film over het verhaal achter de schrijver van Peter Pan en hoe eigenlijk ook het liefst zijn fantasywerelden tot leven zou brengen.

Daredevil (series)
As a child Matt Murdock was blinded by a chemical spill in a freak accident. Instead of limiting him it gave him superhuman senses that enabled him to see the world in a unique and powerful way. Now he uses these powers to deliver justice, not only as a lawyer in his own law firm, but also as vigilante at night, stalking the streets of Hell’s Kitchen as Daredevil, the man without fear.

Cijfer: 7,5. Leuke spannende serie maar soms ook veel superheroes-cliche-scenes. Wel apart is ook dat de serie een speciale ondertiteling heeft voor blinden.

star trek
Star Trek (2009)
On the day of James Kirk’s birth, his father dies on his ship in a last stand against a mysterious alien time-traveling vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who, in this time, is also a child on Vulcan disdained by his neighbors for his half-human heritage. Twenty-five years later, Kirk has grown into a young troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy instructors like young Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency at Vulcan and the newly commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Pavel Chekov and even Kirk himself, thanks to Leonard McCoy’s medical trickery. Together, this crew will have an adventure in the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever as a new version of it begins.

Star Trek Into Darkness
When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

Cijfer: 8, Beide films zijn spannend en leuk om te kijken. En de effecten zijn een stuk beter dan de oudere films ;)
