Beauty and the Beast
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

As utterly pointless a remake as they come. Many scenes are 100% identical to the 1991 original except all said and song a little bit worse so what is the point. Most of what was added to increase the length also felt mostly pointless and added little if anything to this story. You get some nice visuals but I see next to no creative reason this movie exists

Ghost in the Shell
25 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The movie's visual style and well done 3D action are often times fantastic but it really seems to be lacking the deeper themes of original movie in order to instead tell a far more predictable and standard Hollywood heroes journey which is a kind of a shame because it could really have been a lot more than that

Kong: Skull Island

Basically this is a silly B grade monster movie from the 60s or 70s but done on a big budget with modern special effects and thats perfectly fine. It doesn't take itself too seriously and features some standout monster fights. Its cast also give some solid performances particularly from John C Riley. If you are a fan of these type of movies you will probably enjoy this

A Monster Calls

This fantastic tragedy movie about losing a loved one to cancer expertly balances its computer generated fantasy elements with its very personal and very real world drama. The child acting is some of the best I have ever seen and Liam Neeson gives the best vocal performance of his career. If you haven't watched this fantastic movie make sure to put it on your watch list

Justice League Dark
31 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

With an R rated edge and some crazy supernatural elements plus a lot of cool darker lesser known DC characters this is one of the better animated superhero movies of late. Even though this New 52 Justice League still continues to lack the connection of earlier animated versions of the characters. However the animation is good for a direct to video feature and I imagine fans of these characters will be pleased with their portrayal here
