But... why?

It starts off like simple drama set off by an unusual situation. Quirky, yet believable. But the motivations, behaviors, and emotional arcs of the characters (particularly Tucci and Zeta-Jones) are so inconsistent, so melodramatic, so unjustified by the plot developments that it winds up feeling like a fairy tale.

Mmm... I agree. Guess it helps knowing that the movie is inspired by French real life story and French comedies, because those are always very melodramatic and chaotic.

Goodbye Christopher Robin: 6.5/10

It was ok. If you like Winnie the Pooh and don’t know the story behind the author and books, it gives an interesting overview. Surprised it didn’t shy away from how cold and distant parents (from the upper crust I suppose) could be at that time. Definitely not warm and fuzzy, but not dark either. And geez, British boarding school boys can be such absolute dicks! This is the second time I see such horrible depictions of that (the other time was in the Crown Season 2).

Indiana Jones TOD: 6/10.....it has suffered greatly over time...
Plexworthy: mainly yes because itís part of a series..

The acting, effects and quite dull story really shine after all these years...Capshaw and Short round practically ruin this film by themselves...

But the worst part is the choreography of the fights....they are absolutely awful....they clearly were using extras in the fight scenes and not professional stuntmen....the editing was terrible also as you can see many times the people looking out of frame at something (the director?)

Letís not even get into the childlike stop motion of the cart chase.....who approved those shots??

Itís pretty bad.....

It's not better than Red October, but I always mark it a bit higher solely do to Zimmer.

I was watching clips from the Rock earlier actually. It's better than I remember. But eh, I lose interest after the SEAL team led by Hicks eats it.

Wait which are you talking about? I'm saying I like Red October a whole lot more. I like Tide a lot, but I kinda feint interest halfway through it. It's much better than most of Tony Scott's crap. Like his brother, he's got more bad films than good. At least he wised up and checked out from making everyone suffer anymore.

Disney is straight up telling you that they're just milking the franchise with no interest in actually making good films. I was disappointed with TFA, but TLJ is the final nail in the coffin with regard to me not giving a **** about more Star Wars films. In addition to dropping the ball with the original cast, Disney has not created one new character that I give a **** about. I can't believe how many scenes just seemed to be filmed because they thought they'd look good as posters.

I won't be buying the DVD of Last Jedi. I might see the last of this particular
trilogy out of curiosity, but I haven't enjoyed a Star Wars movie since Return
Of The Jedi.

Last Jedi was a disappointing crapfest.

I agree - Disney handled the original cast members like they were extras in a
Final Destination movie, and the characters deserved way better than that.
As for the storyline..total crap.

Doctor Strange (2016)- 8 out of 10 Overall a good adaption of the comic that captures the origin and personality of Strange and tries it's best with music and effects to capture the psychedelic inspiration of the comics, but the comedy feels out of place. I would've been happier if they cut most of the comedy out of this and made it more serious in tone.

Is it really that weird that I don't like the original? I don't particularly remember it being an enormous hit among my peers. The best I can say about it is I love Bonnie Hunt, so the movie had that going for it, and I liked the end how things "reset".

But, I'll have to attribute it to Joe Johnston. I don't know what it is about his movies, but I never seem to like them. They all seem to be movies that would be perfect for me and check all the boxes. But they just never connect with me. I'll be excited about watching it, but after I'll think it was all "meh". From the Rocketeer to Captain America, I want to like them (I really do) but I just can't connect with them. :dunno

It was ok. My mom is a big fan of Agatha Christie so I am familiar with the other movie adaptation, particularly Peter Ustinov's versions of Poirot. I liked Brannagh's interpretation. But overall the movie was just ok. I did, however, really liked the flashback to the murder once the murderer had been revealed. It was creepy and haunting and almost felt out of place with how awesome it was portrayed. A really riveting, emotional scene with a beautiful musical cue accompanying it.

Tomb Raider reboot not bad still prefer Angenlina but new actress does good job , move's fast give a 4.

I kill giants. A little girl severely depressed over mom's cancer death fight's giants. I thought would be better bit depessing to be honest, wanted more giants less depressing story. I give a 3.

Pacific rim uprising. I dont know i just cant get into this movie. It feels like bad power ranger's script's put into big screen movie. Save the world but destroys the full city good job 'Facepalm through out the movie watching it all. I cant even rate it its just a bad movie.

Death Wish. Bruce Willis remake I enjoyed this one move's fast give a 7.

Ready Player one. A solid 10 imo. So much fanlove through full film i prey for a sequel to more of the Oasis.

Justice League 6 out of 10- A mostly mediocre superhero popcorn flick. I didn't like most of the costumes (Flash, Cyborg, final battle Batman, Steppenwolf, Parademons), the CGI was poor, and the story was rushed. I did like most of the battles (the Amazon one looked really fake), some of the dialogue, how Supes was resurrected and how all the characters were portrayed. Overall I liked it more than I thought but definitely not the best.

Downsizing 3 out of 10- I did not want to watch this but a friend wanted to so I endured. This was billed as a quirky comedy but THIS WHOLE MOVIE WASN'T FUNNY. It was actually quite a depressing movie. Damon's character is so passive throughout this, he doesn't really drive the story he's just getting pulled into situations that gradually have him come out of his shell and take hold of his life, but the other characters are just boring and uninteresting and the downsized world is barely important to the story. They didn't do anything with it, just an occasional "look how big this real world cracker is!" and that's it. It might as well just been a new man made island community he was joining to get away from his old world. Boring uninteresting movie, avoid.

I watched it again for the first time since my one theater viewing and I still liked it. I swear, I tried to watch it with a critical eye, and an "open" mind with regards to the criticisms, and I still ended up liking the movie. I liked it in the theater and I still like it. I even don't mind the Canto Bight stuff, which is actually pretty short. I thought Luke was great and I liked how they handled the character. Towards the end, it kept getting better and better, and I kept thinking, "come on! How can anyone not like this?!? This is awesome!" My only criticism, and this is my own personal view, is that I would have liked more small character moments like TFA had. I think TFA excelled in that and I would have liked to see them do a little more this time around. But like I said, it's just my own personal preference and it certainly didn't kill the movie for me.

The premise of this story is actually really interesting, which covers I'd say the first quarter or maybe first half of this movie, and then that's it. The story then changes to be all about Damon's character growth, or lack thereof and then you stop caring very quickly about anything that is going on. It's very dry and the only good thing about the second half was Christoph Waltz, for the little screen time he actually had.

From the way he tells it, the studio butchered his work. But I don't know if it could have been totally salvaged. His heart didn't seem to be in it. Jodorowski was the way to go, though that probably would have guaranteed an even worse commercial failure.

same here.

mostly because I had read the book and it blew my mind.Herbert created a world that was futuristic but also very spiritual.Anyway I did not have that much hope for the film because so much of the dialogue is non spoken in the book.I saw the film only to see how they were going to do it.And the film sucked big time for me.Even though I really liked many of the actors in the film.And some of the visual concepts were pretty good and some childish like the guild navigators folding space.
The tech is there to do it now,so maybe we will get a good remake some day.

I wouldn't have chosen this one of my own volition, but I wanted to do something nice for my wife and actually watch a movie with her for once. I was surprised when the trailers at the beginning of the DVD were all for children's films. Not movies that adults and children could watch, but stuff like the Donkey CG movie that is solely meant for little kids. I knew this one was PG-13, but the trailers told me who they were really trying to target with this movie. Beyond that, it was more or less what I expected it to be. Very much by the numbers, characters who learn to respect and work with one another, dumb humor, dumb action, audience pleasing ending. But I laughed once or twice, and the red headed woman was something to behold.

I just watched NBC's live production of Jesus Christ Superstar.

For the record, I'm not in any way religious or Christian at all. I just grew up listening to the album cause my parents had it. Still have the double LP somewhere.

Anyway. I loved it. Cast nailed it, gave it their all, music was awesome, Alice freaking Cooper stole the show in his cameo.

I'm such a cynical bastard, so I'm shocked by how much I enjoyed it. Got misty eyed and everything.

I thought the production was great also but thought Alice Coper was miscast and did a dreadful job with Herods Song, what should have been a show stopper turned into a sad performance for an iconic rock star.

My other problem was John Legend, he was great for the part but lacked the vocal range of the other singers who have played the Jesus.

Having said that... this is probably the best staged performance of Superstar I have seen and my favorite version of this I have seen.

Another thing and it's not just this film,it seems to have started with the Cloverfield Creature.It's become a style of mutated creature that has popped up in Godzilla,King Kong Skull Island and this film.And most likely a few others I may have not seen.It's just not very interesting or scary at all,whether big or small.It seems to have become the go to style of CGI creature in film.No imagination.Too bad.

I never said it "was not close to his best films," just that it isn't Top Tier. ;) The silly "Scooby Doo-esque" finale with Sorrento and his female henchman in the real world bugged me on my first viewing, not so much on the second. We'll see how I rank this film a few years down the line. As I said I wouldn't put it on the level of JAWS/CE3K/Raiders/E.T. but right now I can easily say it's my favorite film that he's directed since the 1984, possibly even 1982.

The scenes with Olivia Cooke sneaking around IOI's complex with classic "Alan Silvestri high tension music" was pure Spielbergian bliss for me. It also helped that Cooke bears a strong resemblance to young Lea Thompson. That made for a nostalgic combo every bit as delightful as all the full on 80's references and cameos.

Ready Player One (3D) - 6th viewing

97/100

I found it to be incredibly stellar. Writing was safe, so it wasn't some extraordinary tale, and a lot of things conveniently fall into place. But it tells what it needs to tell, and was cohesive from beginning to end.

Visually, this is what won me over, we have so many Easter eggs to sift through, and you always pick up on something new. I will admit that some parts look a bit weird, for example; Parzival's hair was very well done, but Harley's hair during the nightclub scene looked like someone who never played with Play-doh had worked on it. But that didn't bother me as much as if it had been one of the main characters.

Acting was good, nothing iconic, but a lot play the role really well. Nolan can be a bit comical, but he definitely was written and embodied that 80's villain vibe. I actually found his character appreciated in each viewing, even when things like the ending seemed farfetched. Olivia and Tye are just a blast to see, I'll always remember telling my family and friends that those 2 will be doing well in the future, and glad to see I wasn't the only one with that sentiment.

I haven't read the book, yet, but to me, this was just a fun and all around great film.

Great VR world but the plot derailed this movie for me.

So a private corporation is enslaving and physically torturing civilians because of their bad credit and the police are not notified why!

So the police arrive at end to arrest the bad guy but no one can notify the authorities that he’s keep prisoners and torturing them!

They were weak corporate villains with weak motivations and that female baddie was horribly written and portrayed.

Very good love story though.

The black girl who played Aech (was that his name) was very likable she had great charisma but really just her.

The VR bad guy was also cool.

By the car chase at the end in the real world I was done with that plot.

I never bought their evil plan just silly that they would do the things they did.

I never bought him holding a gun on Wade. .

How and where the VR was used made no sense it was all over the place.

No one would EVER wear real suits that would kill them while playing a videogame.

Gamers would allow getting punched in the nuts really.

Was that supposed to be a spiritual message at the end or am I going crazy lol

Why they would have the rights from TOHO to use the Godzilla name and character yet not give him his roar made no sense to me. You know any Godzilla avatar would have his classuc roar Mecha or not.

Unfortunately like King himself I was never a fan of that horror movie I was hoping it was Exorcist, F13th 1, Halloween 1 or The Thing but no such luck so it was all a snooze for me lol

Some great songs but needed more of them.

Yes the VR car race was very cool.

3D was just ok i’ve seen much better.

Another movie ruined by the villains.

So you won't be joining me for viewing #4 huh, lol. I like the idea of future corporations having their own militias. I could see the only reason the "real" cops getting to take Sorrento in was because he was publicly holding a gun on the most famous/beloved person on the planet, lol. Otherwise I could see IOI security showing up, outgunning the police, and politely requesting that they stand down.

But eh, as I said in my very first review that whole portion was pretty silly and Scooby Doo-ish. But not enough so that it diminished the two hours of awesome that came before. I see Wade getting the egg as the real end of the film with the rest just being a prolonged aftermath.

Had the villain plot been integrated better with a clearer end goal it would’ve elevated the entire movie.

I mean IOI had a **** load of happy employees working there some horrible villain lol

Wade should’ve just taken the offer he had ZERO reasons not to take it I didn’t buy it for one second that he wouldn’t just accept it he had no reason not to.

Very fun. Lots of great jokes and new characters. Action was pretty cool. Although Loki felt a bit bland in this outing (and in Dark World, come to think of it). I think I’d still give the edge to the first Thor because I LOVED the character interaction between Thor, Loki and Odin. Loki was magnificent in the first Thor.

The Shape of Water: 6.5/10

Eh. It was ok. I admired the attempt at an “original” story, but I just didn’t find myself that engrossed in the characters. *shrug*


Justice League: 6/10

Kinda disappointing. I actually liked MOS and BvS despite some questionable character behavior so I was hoping this one would fit in with those. JL was just overall very bland. It seems that Whedon re-did everything with Super (as evidenced by the ‘stache), plus much more than was reported. The jokes and lighthearted approach was ok I guess, but it was like “lite” Whedon, almost like someone else was trying to do a Whedon-esque movie, but came up short. And I *like* Whedon, too. Such a shame. I would love to see Zach’s cut someday. At the very least Zach's version would look better.
Edit: oh, yeah, the soundtrack was terrible. Disappointed to find it was Elfman. Zimmer's ST were great for MOS and BvS.

Not sure what the general consensus on it is here, but I thought this was just bad. The story on paper was great and had a lot of heart but the final execution was average at best. Most of the effects were laughable, especially the wolf who just magically melted into a pool of blood upon getting hit by a car/truck. And then after all of that build up, the main character ends up turning into a giant mange-infected rat instead of a werewolf. Overall direction was pretty bland too.

Normally I'd give it more of a pass since the story was so great, but if the effects are a fail, then the movie is a fail. Makes me appreciate AWIL and Dog Soldiers even more.

Super Troopers 2, 9/10

It really surpasses the original, thats what i call a comedy, instant cult classic, lots of quotable jokes and memorable moments, i was blown away by the humour! Too bad IW will shut if down next weekend at the box office, sad to say.

The Reef (2011) - 7.5/10

An upsetting and unsettling shark flick but about as realistic as these films get.

War For Planet Of The Apes

I didn't plan to stay up till 4 am watching this movie,
but I just couldn't turn off the tv. It was very good!
The story is excellent. Special effects are amazing.

Logan: 7.5/10

Not as good as the first go around, but still a decent send off for the character.
