Kick whatever, can't be bothered to remember the second part of the name

  1. Sunday 18th August 2013. I went to see Kick-Ass 2, I went along not remembering what the title was about other than some overused American phrase that I couldn't tolerate the sound of. However it was a wonderful antidote for the experience of seeing "Only GodForgives" last week. It was good to see Chloe Moretz killing people and doing all her gymnastics or whatever that involved, whether she was capable of it or not. The territory that the film went through could easily have turned out to be a pile of XXXX but once the film got going, it seemed to be full of lots of great characters, just enough to not lose sight of who was who after a good many were included in the film. The comic book teen vigilante story was both not too happy and not too sad and the action and fight scenes in it were great including the grand battle.  Miss Tryon was almost certain that Jim Carrey who played a vigilante was supposed to look like Terry Gilliam. Yes, I loved the movie, Chloe Moretz and Aaron Taylor-Johnson played satisfying characters, and if I never bothered to see it again that probably wouldn't be a big deal. I just didn't seem to be bothered much by the elements that people have appeared to give it harsh criticisms for. I didn't take any aspect of the thing seriously at all, including anything that seemed like a message.
  2. Monday 19th August 2013. Kick-Ass 2 was quite a tremendous movie really considering the characters that they had to make use of such as the villain. The villain's most powerful hench-person was quite an extra-ordinary odd looking human, looked very dangerous indeed. The battle scene with vigilantes vs villains was excellently put together as well as Hit-Girl's final big fight. I had no urge to make any sense out of the film at all.
  3. Tuesday 20th August 2013. Memories of having seen this film float further into the distance almost like some odd senseless dream/ Memories of having seen this film now drift off into the distance like an odd senseless dream that i would understand even even (?) in sleep. (No clue why I typed two evens instead of senseless but that was on a mobile phone originally when I entered that sentence into my Twitter page while on the train and it just came up like that, maybe in the end things were just evened out) But yes it was like the content of an odd senseless dream which I am thankful for.
