Deepwater Horizon
30 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A well-made 'inspired by real events' retelling, the quality of this film is excellent. Its problem is its lack of story arc - a product of it being based on real, tragic events. The environment and main characters are well established in the film's first half, but then the story turns to the main characters reacting to a stream of obstacles until the conclusion is reached. Only circumstantial , reactionary decisions are made by the film's protagonist (Marky Mark is great here), but I felt this movie's arc lacking at about the 2/3rds mark. Well made, important, but maybe not theatre-worthy.

Boy and the World (O Menino e o Mundo)
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Original, Inspirational, a sight to be seen. A must-see for animation geeks, this adventure is nothing like any feature-length animation I've seen. Imaginative and touching. If it has a flaw, it's that , if you're like me, your attention-span will get challenged at around the 2/3rds mark. It's not exactly fast-paced as conventional western movies are. . Did I mention the colours were awesome?

Fantastic Four
9 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not so terrible as to deserve 9% on RT, but certainly half-baked and among the depths of quality as 2011's Captain America. The movie has a nice polished finish but the script (or editing) is oddly paced and the final battle rushes to a conclusion. If you have nothing, nothing nothing else to watch and you end of sitting through this 1hr40mins, you'll just feel like you've watched a comic book movie you'll never need to watch again.

Jupiter Ascending

What a mess. Just about everything is wrong with this movie: A script with pacing issues, direction and production design that obviously cared more about cool effects (bad green screen) than actually telling a story. The only positive point worth noting were the strong performances by the actors who were obviously committed to their craft, even though everything else was garbage. This movie is to the Wachowskis as Jar Jar Binks and the prequels are to George Lucas. How the mighty have fallen.
