Movie – The Godfather: Part III [REVIEW] – All The Power On Earth Can’t Change Destiny

IMDB Rating: 7,6/10
Genre: Crime, Drama
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Writer: Mario Puzo
Stars: Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Andy Garcia


Warning, this review will contain a spoiler!!!

The Godfather: Part III is arguably the worst sequel of all “The Godfather” series. But, that’s how many people say that. To me, The Godfather: Part III may also be arguably losing power and some other elements compared to the prequel series. The Godfather: Part III is also going to focus on the story of sorrow experienced by Michael and also some romance stories that exist in The Godfather.

“The Godfather: Part III,” tells about Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) who can no longer continue his business. Therefore, Michael can only regret his actions for killing innocent people including his brother, Fredo. His business was entrusted by Joey Zasa (Joe Mantegna) in New York and to restore his reputation, Michael often did a charity run by Vito Andolini, his father.

Godfather 3

Of all the Godfather series I’ve watched so far, The Godfather: Part III is arguably the most depressing and saddest movie ever. In this movie, Michael looks like someone who doesn’t respect himself and must regret his sins in front of the archbishop. Michael has regretted his sins for killing the people he cares about. And also, Michael must have a very sad death to die alone with his dog. The Godfather: Part III is also the last series of the trilogy of The Godfather. Actually, Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola ever had a planned to make the part IV. But, the film never made itself because Mario Puzo died.

Mary

Al Pacino acting arguably more looks like a mafia because of the previous series he just gets a little performance. One of them, there is a scene that is required for Al Pacino to cry for hearing the song “Speak Softly Love.” While listening to this song, Michael cried because he remembered his first wife who died tragically. In addition to Al Pacino, Sofia Coppola acting who is also the son of the director Francis Ford Coppola looks good.

Vincent

The Godfather: Part III focuses on romance, especially the relationship between Vincent with Mary and Michael with Kay. Therefore, The Godfather: Part III lost some touch of mafia elements, unlike the previous film. However, this doesn’t change the fact because of The Godfather: Part III is the exact same film from the previous film as well.


Overall, although the film was only nominated for an Oscar in 1991, this film looks good in terms of the story. Mario Puzo has created a magic touch on all of The Godfather series. Fans of Mafia, Mario Puzo, Francis Ford Coppola, or all of the circles must watch all the series from The Godfather.

Most Epic Scene Ever

DAY 19 – MOST EPIC SCENE EVER


Day 19 of the 30 Day Anime Challenge and have an another few days to arrive at the 30th day. I’m just kidding, but this time we might be going into some action that could be stressful and our topic this time is, “Most Epic Scene Ever.”

Luffy

All of you definitely have a very memorable scene, especially in some action anime. The scene is the most memorable scene because, in terms of fights and battles, we know it’s really cool. However, there are also some who take a memorable scene from a dialogue or some plot-twist. All of you have it, while I also have a memorable scene in every anime. Whether it’s Romance, Slice of Life, Drama, or Ecchi. I seriously remember the memorable scene. But, of all the anime, the most memorable scene for myself is Marineford Arc from “One Piece.”

Everyone knows what One Piece is. For those who don’t know, do I have to explain the synopsis again?

One Piece

Marineford

Gol D. Roger was known as the “Pirate King,” the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and death of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the existence of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was the revelation that brought about the Grand Pirates King of Pirates, who is the Pirate King’s King of Pirates King of Pirates.

Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy who defies your standard definition of a pirate. Rather than the popular persona of a wicked, hardened, toothless pirate ransacking villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is one of the pure wonder: the thought of an exciting adventure that leads him too intriguing people and ultimately, the promised treasure. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Luffy and his crew travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, mysteries, and dark Unveiling strong battling enemies, all in order to reach the most coveted of all fortunes-One Piece.

Marineford

Marineford Arc is the 22nd arc of the One Piece series. In this series, Luffy and other prisoners from Impel Down manage to escape inside Impel Down prison and go to Marineford to rescue Ace being executed. With the odds stacked high against him, the coming threat of Whitebeard, and the ulterior motives of the pirates that wish to overthrow the Yonkou, Luffy struggles to hold his own in this titanic clash of powers.


Of all the One Piece Arc, this arc is the most memorable for me. Whitebeard Pirates War alliance with Luffy and the Impel Down against Navy brass along with Schibukai is the most epic battle for all arc in One Piece. This battle roughly consumed 31 Chapter manga and 33 episodes of anime. This is the most epic scenes ever for me as well as another arc One Piece I liked from Enies Lobby Arc, Skypiea Arc, and Sabaody Archipelago Arc.

The Most Marriage Material Girl

DAY 18 – FAVORITE SUPPORTING FEMALE ANIME CHARACTER


The 18th day of the 30 Day Anime Challenge and I became as fitter as it wasn’t yesterday. If yesterday we discuss my favorite supporting male anime character, today we will discuss the opposite is, “Favorite Supporting Female Anime Character.”

I’ll not write much because I also can’t figure out which one fits and I don’t know who is to choose. Not much I can mention so I’ll just choose one that is Funabori from the anime “D-Frag!”

DFRAG

Kazama Kenji likes to believe he is something of a delinquent. Moreover, others seem to like to agree that he is. Of course, Kenji’s gang finds their way to a group of four not-so-normal girls-Chitose, Sakura, Minami, and Roka-and all at once, whatever reputation he may have is not to be compared to the outrageous behavior of the girls. Shanghaied into joining their club, what will happen to his everyday life from that point on?

Source: MAL

D-Frag!

I’ll discuss very similar characters like a very good woman named Funabori. Funabori is Kazama’s classmate. She is the most marriage material girl in the school, and very skilled in cooking. Because of that personality, she was always liked by all his classmates other than Kazama. Helping her neighbors even helped Kazama. Funabori looks like liking Kazama as well as the heroine that’s in this anime. In the manga as well, she is very visibly storing feelings towards Kazama but never delivered by Kazama himself.


This anime may be very funny for you to watch. Although this is an anime harem, I somehow put this anime into my favorite anime. Meanwhile, I also temporarily reading this manga. Funabori is a character who has a person like a dream wife who is very skilled in cooking. 😀 And we have to end our topic this time first. Tomorrow we will discuss, “Most Epic Scene Ever.”

Anime – Charlotte [REVIEW] – A Comet That Only Occurs Once In A Century

MyAnimeList Rating: 7,91/10
Genre: Drama, School, Super Power
Studios: P.A. Works
Author: Jun Maeda, Chibimaru, Yuu Tsurusaki
Seiyuu: Ayane Sakura, Kouki Uchiyama, Momo Asakura


Charlotte, a short-period comet passes near Earth every 75 years.

And that is the point where the anime is so interesting to watch. I remember, this anime I’ve watched when I’m in a High School. Summer 2015, I followed this anime from ongoing until completed. And the fact is, this anime success to made that fans cry like a baby and I didn’t belong in there. You can see from the title, maybe this will be something that makes us more curious than the mystery.

Super Power

“Charlotte,” tells about an incident where High School teenagers suddenly have a variety of super powers. One of them is Yuu Otosaka (Kouki Uchiyama), has a power that can enter the consciousness of a person in just 5 seconds. His strength is always used for his pleasure and cheating. Suddenly, he meets a woman who also has power, Tomori Nao (Ayane Sakura) and shows what really happened in this world.

Charlotte, when hearing the title has made us more curious. What is Charlotte? Is that a bullshit? Nobody knows until you watch it. However, that is the point to make their audience become interested. This anime managed to make the audience touched and amazed because of this anime is full of plot-twist. Take it easy, this anime doesn’t require a high-level thinking. So, calm down.

Yuu

If viewed from the artwork, this anime is definitely adapted by Studio P.A. Works. They make popular anime such as Angel Beats, Another, A Lull in the Sea, and Shirobako. The visual is very similar to the anime I mention it. The art also belongs to the part that makes the audience amazed. This anime also has a very interesting in the song, especially in the opening. Bravely You by Lia feels very suitable for this ranging from. And for some reason, Lia is always present in a sad popular anime that also includes like Clannad and Angel Beats.

Nao

Of the advantages that I mentioned, there are actually many also a lack of this anime. First, the story is too much nonsense and the level of the completion is in episode 12 . Second, the emergence of characters that are not the clear origin and suddenly disappeared. Thirdly, the plot-twist at the end of the episode was somehow, in my opinion, the worst plot-twist ever. And finally, the story is too long-winded and very predictable. Apart from that, I still think Jun Maeda is someone who is trying hard to make this anime but not as good as his own like Air, Kanon, and Clannad.


Overall, Charlotte is an excellent anime from quality, artwork, soundtrack, BGM, seiyuu, and plot-twist. But I am also a human being who only knows criticism. So, I just wanna say I’m sorry. And as it should, this anime is recommended for those who like some little action or some rom-com.

Villain Also Had A Dark Past

DAY 17 – FAVORITE SUPPORTING MALE CHARACTER


Shiro

A bright morning and instantly turn on my PC. I don’t know why but I feel there is something wrong in here. My head is also very dizzy to stare at the computer screen. But forget it. This time, we’ve arrived at the 17th day and our topic this time is, “Favorite Supporting Male Character.”

In the anime, we often find that the supporting character is better than the main character. There are much anime that I find that way. But I will only choose one. And he is Kiyomasa Senji from the anime, “Deadman Wonderland.”

DW

It looked like it would be a normal day for Deadland Wonderland, where the convicts perform dangerous acts for the onlookers’ amusement. However, Ganta’s life is quickly turned upside down when his whole class gets massacred by a mysterious man in red. Framed for the incident and sentenced to death, Ganta is sent to the very jail he was supposed to visit.

But Ganta’s nightmare is only just beginning.

The young protagonist is thrown into a world of sadistic inmates and enigmatic powers, to live in constant fear of the lethal collar placed around his neck that is slowed only by winning in the prison’s deathly games. Ganta must bet his life to survive in a ruthless place where it is not always easy to tell the friend of foe, all while trying to find the mysterious “Red Man” and clear his name, in Deadman Wonderland.

This anime is very pure annoying when watching its first episode. I’m just emotionally alone when I watch it. Not because of the story or the problem of his portrayal, it’s just that the main character is so tormented by his own author.

Senji

Back to our topic, I really like this Senji character. At the beginning of the first appearance, we just assume he is just a bad guy who always disrupts the main character. However, further the story we will think if he is just a good guy. His kindness helps Ganta the main character in controlling the power of crimson crystals. Senji also has a character that has a very dark past. Although Senji has a rough personality, Senji also has a shy person when he is approached by women.


Okay, we’ll end our topic this time. I think my head is a little dizzy. I just want to sleep. But I also have many supporting characters that I favor besides Senji. Tomorrow, we will cover the topic of “Favorite Supporting Female Anime Character.”

Movie – Suicide Squad [REVIEW] – Justice Has A Bad Side

IMDB Rating: 6,2/10
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Director: David Ayer
Writer: David Ayer
Stars: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie


This movie is the most I await his arrival in 2016. Unlike films like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or even Captain America: Civil War, this movie I’ve been waiting after I saw the first trailer. But, this movie isn’t as I think too. And more annoying again, this movie is the most overrated of all time in 2016.

Joker

“Suicide Squad,” tells about a group of governments who want to design a secret mission. This group will be named Argus. Argus is a group where all its members are the most famous and most dangerous criminals. The criminals are Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Joker (Jared Leto), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), and Enchantress (Cara Delevingne).

Diablo

From the beginning of the first trailer I watched, this movie has been getting a lot of good response from the appearance of Joker, Bohemian Rhapsody song, and the amazing editing. This film managed to become a trending topic on Twitter by beating Finding Dory movies and other 2016 movies. However, Suicide Squad is just one movie that is very deceptive if by looking at its own poster.

Deadshot

From stories to conflicts, they are very flat. From the first beginning of the film, introduced in detail and slowly from the introduction of the character. Until the conflict, the film is somehow like something is missing. In my opinion, this film is only able to steal the attention of the audience just like the characters Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn, and Rick Flag. Some members of the Suicide Squad who aren’t too direct attention are just ignored and abolished. What’s more, Joker should be the main star of this film even got a lot of negative responses. Jared Leto is just someone who can’t describe a figure that looks so much like a Joker. Unlike Requiem For A Dream or Fight Club, Jared Leto only has at least appear in this movie. Harley Quinn who became successful and managed to steal the attention of the audience. Salute for successful Margot Robbie plays Harley Quinn.

 

I don’t know what David Ayer, the author, and director thinking of this film. The cinematography David Ayer used was pretty good and interesting, but only the script and the story were so superficial. This film doesn’t show how and what the purpose of this film. And the storytelling written by him is also so weak.

Harley Quinn

On the other side, this film also uses some dark-comedy like other DC films. However, only a few and only this time using dark-comedy. In the end, this film is just making the audience and critics talk too much about this movie. Although the film received so many negative criticisms from famous critics, there are some positive points that can be taken from this film. One of them is action and comedy that always appear in every film. With music that is full of distortion that can be perceived by the audience, this film so covers the shortcomings. Visual Effect that Ayer made also not bad it feels like playing games. CGI is really neat.


Overall, this film shows many flaws that are not realized by the audience. That’s why some of his positive points mask the shortcomings. If you want to watch this overrated film, I will never forbid you. I just assume this movie is like a click bait on YouTube videos or food that has a beautiful name to a price that is expensive but not according to expectations that we imagine.

Dressed To Kill

DAY 16 – ANIME WITH THE BEST ANIMATION


Well, here it is. We have reached the 16th day of the 30 Day Anime Challenge. Our topic this time is, “Anime With The Best Animation.”

We all definitely have the best-animated anime. Some call it Monogatari, Makoto Shinkai’s works, All animations made by Hayao Miyazaki to be famous in the world, or it could be animated by Fujiko Fujio. Indeed they are all legends that will never be forgotten in the anime and international world. But, I also have anime with the best animation in my own opinion. The anime is, “KILL LA KILL”

 

KLK

KILL la KILL

 

After the murder of her father, Ryuuko Matoi has been wandering the land in search of his killer. Following her only lead—the missing half of his invention, the Scissor Blade—she arrives at the prestigious Honnouji Academy, a high school unlike any other. The academy is ruled by the imposing and cold-hearted student council president Satsuki Kiryuuin alongside her powerful underlings, the Elite Four. In the school’s brutally competitive hierarchy, Satsuki bestows upon those at the top special clothes called “Goku Uniforms,” which grant the wearer unique superhuman abilities.

Dressed to Kill

Anime made by Kazuki Nakashima is anime with the best animation according to my own. Created by Studio Trigger in 2013, this anime is my favorite anime action too. A very rough-looking portrayal makes some of her action scenes intense. Although this anime is purely filled with fan service, it’s own fan service that focuses on this anime story.


So we have to end it here. I also have anime with the best animations of all time. Indeed anime created by Hayao Miyazaki does have a stunning animation, even famous around the world. Anime created by Makoto Shinkai also has its own beauty. However, KILL la KILL is an anime that has the best animation in my opinion.
