Awesome, awesome, AWESOME!!! Where do I begin? Maybe by saying that J.J. Abrams is an absolute genius that not only knows how to make a great film, but how to successfully follow up a masterpiece (Star Trek 2009) as well. His plots that involve twists and turns that keep you constantly guessing are worth every dollar you will pay for a ticket....it is no wonder Disney brought him on board to direct the upcoming Star Wars films. Even with the known fact that the first Star Trek was extremely good and cannot be touched, this sequel comes very close. He definitely delivered! I could go on and on about what I liked about this film and how we are seeing the development of one of the greatest franchises ever, but I would be here for hours and hours. 5 stars!
I enjoyed it and thought RDJ was great as expected, but Iron Man 3 was just more of the same ol' same. The CGI was on point, probably better work in that department than in the first two films, but other than that the film was cheesy to me at many points. If you have seen it, you probably know what I mean; moments like that bring down the film in my opinion and make them borderline childish. Hopefully this is the final film in the franchise because I don't see any future films going anywhere but down.
One word.....impactful. I was sort of skeptical on how well an amateur actor could play someone as large as Jackie Robinson, but Chadwick Boseman killed the role. Knowing a good amount of baseball history, I appreciated how on-point the detail was in the film. From Ebbets field, to the Polo grounds, to the uniforms....everything was visually pleasing. I really don't have a negative thing to say about 42, and I believe it should definitely have a higher score than its current 77%.
I don't really have a decisive stance on this one. The story can sometimes be dull, but when it does kick in with its awesome visuals, it suddenly becomes good again. It had a couple of funny moments as well which I liked as well. All in all, it was decent.
