#TheBottomLine Assassin's Creed (film)

I think the only good thing I can say about it is that the action is rather satisfying to watch, especially when it's straight up parkour chase sequences, as Assassin's Creed is want to do, but the rest feels like a smack in the face rather than an actual movie.

They use the eagle motif without explaining a bit of it, they ruined the Animus for presumed 'coolness' and they spoiled the whole mystery of the first game by spewing out the final prize, trying -- atrociously -- to expand on it and ultimately leave us hanging in hope for a sequel.

TLDR: Ok. And if this is your first foray into Assassin's Creed, go play the first game instead.

#TheBottomLine Hardcore Henry

This movie was directed by the director of the 'Bad Motherfucker' videoclip, and as a sort of continuation of that, he apparently want to know how far he could take the concept, story be damned.

And the answer is: a pretty cool and unique action movie that throws world building and logical story under the tank treads of near constant action and great effects (though beware if you get motion sickness easily).

TLDR: Nice.

#TheBottomLine Moana

The first thing to note about this movie is that, as it is mostly ocean based with ocean creatures and ocean things and plenty of ocean nights, it is a gorgeous film.

Besides that, it has a pretty standard plot, which can even be called a variation on the Hero's Journey, and all the major story beats are predictable, but it is very well done on all accounts and it is generally just great fun so I can understand why it got all the praise it did.

TLDR: Good.

#TheBottomLine Logan

If you consider this as a basic version of the X-23 storyline slapped on the premise of the Old Man Logan comic book, then it is very well performed and hits the proper emotional beats as well as providing some cool action on top but I can't let it go without criticism.

Despite the R rating allowing some more upfront violence as the Wolverine deserves there are action scenes hinted upon that I wish we could've seen and in order to provide Jackman with a way out, they went against the character to give a reason for him dying and the explanation for a lack of character licenses is pretty appalling.

TLDR: Good.

Electrofishing for Whales
I used to work on a fisheries crew where we would use an electro-fisher backpack to momentarily stun small fish (30 - 100 mm length) so we could scoop them up with nets to identify and measure them. The larger fish tended to be stunned for slightly longer because of their larger surface area but I don't imagine this relationship would be maintained for very large animals. Could you electrofish for a blue whale? At what voltage would you have have to set the e-fisher?
