This movie takes a while to settle in with its grand scale yet tiny scope. There is a beginning, a middle and an end, that's almost the only way to sum up this movie. The acting and directing are good, but I would be lying if I said I didn't get bored at times during the nearly 3 hour runtime. Linklater makes very uneventful but thought provoking movies, and this is no exception. In the end however, I feel like there are better ways to spend 12 years a directorial career.
This is just a fun summer movie, there is not much depth or complexity in the story, and a lot of the humor does fall flat, but if you just go into the theater not looking to have your mind blown then you won't be disappointed. This is another decent Marvel adventure.
22 Jump may not be as good as 21 Jump, but it comes as close as any other sequel comes to outdoing its predecessor. With another decent screenplay, characters that aren't quite worn out yet, and some clever meta-humor, 22 Jump Street ends up being a very fun and enjoyable film.
Frozen is a special movie because it manages to be great despite not being a gut-buster or a tear-jerker. The plot is interesting, with some funny moments and many other heartfelt ones, the characters are lovable, the animation is great and the story has great morals. But what makes this film standout is the great music that will entertain kids and adults alike. Kudos to the great voice actors/singers and songwriters for creating something special.
South Park's jump to the big screen is very funny and makes many fine references, but there is a reason TV shows struggle in theaters. The writing usually wears thin due to films having a much longer runtime than TV episodes, and the scale of the stories are way too big and strange, both of which apply to this movie. However, buried in this chaotic mess is an honest message, hilarious moments and some catchy/clever show tunes. South Park is better on the small screen, but holds its own on the big one.
