Random Review: Real Steel

  • I don't know why but I'm more amazed at the SFX used in this movie than in Transformers (the sequels, at least). Maybe it's because they scaled it down to look more realistic. Or maybe because Real Steel didn't involve demolishing half of New York.
  • I like Hugh Jackman. But I still couldn't wrap my head around the fact that he's married to her
  • Dakota Goyo is a promising young actor.  Anyone who can match Wolverine's swagger and can teach a robot how to dance has a future in Hollywood.
  • I like that the movie didn't go down the Bicentennial Man route. Me want no cry.
  • I appreciate it when producers are able to stop themselves from injecting kissing scenes every five minutes. Sex sells, yes, but I'd rather it doesn't in a robot boxing movie. 
  • Evangeline Lilly is one of the few actresses that can manage to look sexy without flashing her cleavage every two seconds. Also, is it just me or does she look a lot like Jessica Biel?
  • People who want to watch UFC but do not want flying bloody teeth better hope some crazy Japanese scientist figures out a way to make this movie a reality.
  • I am in love with Hugh Jackman's cellphone. Fuck yeah transparency!
  • LOL at subtle product replacements.
  • The people who conceptualized the robot designs deserve an award. That kind of creativity and innovation should always be recognized.
  • This movie makes me want to brutalize our washing machine and turn it into a sumo wrestler.
  • Everything is more fun when your theater seat vibrates to the beat of robot punches. This is 4D, noobs.
  • I don't want to admit it, but Real Steel reminded me of Pacquiao. Or the Filipino people in general. Digged up from the mud of society and working our way up the big arena of life. We might not be the biggest, toughest, most armed race out there, but like what Jackman said, we're gonna go down swingin'.
  • Rating: 8 out of 10. I would have made it a 9 if Hugh took his shirt off more often.
